Asked about depay yesterday and lost the post so continued
Depay is certainly better than daka and in some terms raphinha both of whom would cost money.
Depay is free. With Barcelona as they are right now i think we can have a word with Depay.
I think he will get on well with us. And to be honest him for free is actually a good deal. He can atleast score 10 goals in the system we play and if we get him going we are easily looking at 20. I cannot see salah bobby mane playing 50 games every season. Jota is good rotation option and depay will help us a lot in same ways jota has.
No actually we can easily cash in on mane if need be if we can get depay for free. And may be go big next year once our income is supported by matchday money.
As for his frills and lifestyle he can wear any crazy combination of red he wants. We do have vvd to settle him in. And i think he will get on well with lads we have in the squad.
For all reasons i can't find a negative with this move.
We should be sounding him out and trying to get him. Get origi wilson shaq off the books and the salary can be managed too. If not then that's the players choic3.

Depay won't move to LFC.

10 Jun 2021 09:16:52
He’s agreed a move to Barcelona. There is no way the club would move for him, I agree he would be a good signing, but it’s not football manager where we are randomly going to try and take a player we have shown no previous interest in.

10 Jun 2021 09:42:47
Exactly my point i don't get why we haven't sounded him out especially given that we are actually looking to add more depth to front three with raphinha being linked.
There is nothing as barcelona bound or gentleman's agreement unless he has pen is put to paper which he has not.
He makes sense especially as we need a player who can cover front three or be a starter. Raphinha although better is going to be Expensive around 50 million in total Expensive.
Quite strange for me especially as we can offer whatever Barcelona is offering money status and success wise.
Maybe its his age at 27 he isn't exactly covering us for long term future. Still considering we want to strengthen up top, in the current financial climate signing depay makes a lot of sense to me.
If he has good euros i have a feeling we might go for him if he doesn't commit to barcelona in a day or two.

Thing is though, both of Raphinha and Depay are wingers and we’ve loads of players like that. Mane, Salah, Jota, Elliott, Ox, Minamino. What we don’t have is an actual striker who can lead the line, for me Daka would be a better punt because he’s very good down the middle as a central striker who can lead the line, but also can play out wide, it’s very rare that RBS get it wrong on a player.

10 Jun 2021 10:15:01
Rbs getting wrong on player and liverpool getting wrong on player are two different things. You cannot expect 20 sonething y. o kids to lead your line in a different country with no know how of language. Its tough and needs much more than just football ability.
Also End of the day Daka is a bet, Depay is a guarantee imo.

From what I have read, FSG carry out due diligence into a player's character/ personality before signing them to ensure they are the right fit. From what I have seen/ read, Depay is a massive prima dona with a terrible attitude. He cares more about making it as a gangster rapper than a footballer and if you watch his music video, he likes to smoke a few cigars. I would avoid at all costs. You know what they say about bad apples.

{Ed001's Note - he is not like that at all really, though he does smoke cigars.}

Daka literally speaks perfect English. It’s the second official language of Zambia.

10 Jun 2021 10:32:33
Hlozek is the perfect one to rotate along the front three now and be Bobby's long-term replacement. We are seriously missing a trick if we don't go for him.

10 Jun 2021 10:37:47
Depay's wages would be ludicrous. I think it's time for us to build a team for the next 4-5 years as many of our first 11 are aging and will be coming to the end of their careers.

Depay is a good player and would do well for us no doubt but he is not the sort of player we should be looking at IMO.

10 Jun 2021 11:09:03
If we were selling Mane I’d say Depay would be an ok replacement but as things stand, I don’t see where he gets in or that he fills any short comings in the squad. Whereas Daka does.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have no interest in Depay.}

10 Jun 2021 12:36:31
Cheers Ed, pretty much thought that would be the case.

10 Jun 2021 13:12:09
VVVV, English is the official language of Zambia so it is perhaps not surprising that he speaks it perfectly. Wikipedia is useful on these occasions.

10 Jun 2021 13:30:41
Memphis the pie. He lit up the league didn’t he. What a flop rather have Babel back.

{Ed077's Note - Flopped just like Nobby Keita I guess....

10 Jun 2021 13:43:41
Touché er077, I see you know your judo well.

Jack, i thought it was officially the second language due to the native language of the country, but either or, the point is he speaks perfect English and comes across as an articulate, intelligent and humble young lad.

{Ed077's Note - it's kind of the requirements to be the editors on these pages. Judo and Ludo (you might need to Google it)

10 Jun 2021 13:54:27
Fighting and board game skills are not to be taken lightly Ed.

{Ed077's Note - if only I was good at them in IRL. Although I would prefer to be good at chess if you game me the pick of all board games...

10 Jun 2021 15:26:12
Ed077, but your judo is no match for our kung-fu. Proof is in the pudding. Who drives whom mad first? The posters or the Eds? 😝.
