Aston villa rumoured to be in for Divock Origi. Some outlets are saying we're looking for around £30million.

Kieran

1.) 05 Aug 2020 14:56:30
It would make perfect sense if we could also bring in Sarr IMO - Divock is good enough to want to play more, but Minamino Is more like for like backup for Firmino. Selling Divock for Sarr would give him the playing time he deserves, while bringing in Sarr would add a natural attacking wide forward to allow us to rest Mane or Salah without us having to change our system too much.


2.) 05 Aug 2020 15:12:38
£30mil

Take their arm off!


3.) 05 Aug 2020 15:38:31
Loosing Sarr, Mane and Salah for the AFCON would be ridiculous.
Throw in the Algerian CB too and it just doesn't make much sense. I reckon we are throwing some bids out there to create smokescreens .

{Ed002's Note - And Keita.}


4.) 05 Aug 2020 15:39:02
SGRed if we could get £20m for Origi I would snatch there hand off let alone £30m. with Money being so tight if we could sell Origi shaqiri and Wilson and get one good player in there who would play as much as shaqiri and Origi I think that would make us so much better. And then add Brewster to the squad I think we would have much better competition for are front 3. And there would also be Minamino who I think is going to turn out a good signing for us but I do think he is going to need another year before we see the best of him.


5.) 05 Aug 2020 15:55:26
If Origi is sold the clear and obvious replacement is Brewster. Sarr is not an improvement on what we have in my opinion. Plus the AFCON issue.

Klopp seems to like Ox out wide anyway. He scored 8 goals last season as a ressie (our 4th highest scorer, and 2 more than Sarr) and most of them came off the wings running at people or in behind.


6.) 05 Aug 2020 17:14:22
Agree 100% Grino

HMB if we sold Origi and brought in Sarr, it’s not so obvious he’ll be a better player, but i think it makes more sense to have a specialist wide forward on the bench than 3 CFs competing for attention in Origi, Minamino and Brewster (Minamino perhaps the most flexible of these, but arguably Klopps favourite to backup Firmino) .

Ox can certainly play there, but again not a specialist IMO and I think Klopps view is he’s a midfielder first.


7.) 05 Aug 2020 17:54:04
Don’t know why you should bite anyone’s arm off at £30 million? After being asked to sit on the bench all season when called upon in our hour of need The Lad scored twice to knock Barcelona out in the semi and scored in the final of the European cup. Doesn’t matter what you think of him them stats don’t lie you should be ashamed to just want to cast him aside for someone who has done nothing!


8.) 05 Aug 2020 18:17:54
That's true scouse john L8, the thing is though, Div is not really suited to our system .


9.) 05 Aug 2020 18:28:07
So just coz he scored a couple of important goalz, btw his job, how many seasons must we keep him? If a much better player is available then it only makes sense he moves on.
Hopefully the lad can leave on a high get regular game time which is nothing more than he deserves.


10.) 05 Aug 2020 18:34:36
Doesn’t matter if he suited Spaceman he can’t get a game he warms the bench. doesn’t moan or try and get a move imagine any other striker done what he did last year, they’d be up in arms full of themselves wanting more money or star player treatment. If Harry Kane would of achieved what origi did he would want to pull Nelson from his column and have himself up there. People talk of getting these players in (raw) and transforming them. Origi £10 million quid scored a brace in semi and comes off his usual perch in the final to win it. Anyone think Sarr would do that?


11.) 05 Aug 2020 19:10:40
Why do people keep going on about AFCON? The next one is in January 2022.


12.) 05 Aug 2020 20:24:18
We should go for Nkunku from Leipzig only 20 raw talent which Klopp would turn into a superstar.

{Ed002's Note - Sell Nobby then?}


13.) 05 Aug 2020 20:25:34
scouse john L8 he scored them last season got a lot more game time this season and has less goals. he should have gone at the end of last season because his never been good enough and what a time to have gone he will still go down in history as a reds legend and will all ways be loved by the fans. But his game time went down after lockdown with Minamino get more time and if we get a better wide player he will get less and his value will gone down more. And at his age he needs and deserves to be playing and that is never going to happen at Liverpool.


14.) 05 Aug 2020 20:37:00
Personally I think he’s a decent option to come off the bench, he’s never going to be a world class player, but he always gives 100% and doesn’t complain about being the understudy. You can tell that being part of the club and it’s success means something to him, that moment in the last game of the season at Anfield when he was the last man on the pitch looking at the Kop spoke more than a million words could. Personally, I think he gives us something that our other forwards don’t have, and that’s a physical presence if we have to go long, regrettably agricultural football is occasionally needed and he gives us that option. If he does leave though, he leaves with his head held high that not only did he contribute to the success of the club, he was loved as a cult hero. He’ll be harder to replace than a lot of people think.


15.) 05 Aug 2020 20:40:31
I think that we need another wide player, Ismaila Sarr does fit the bill, but the Shaq and Wilson would have to be sold to pay for him, also to make the space, could we get him for 25 or 30 million?


16.) 05 Aug 2020 21:22:03
Origi gives a physical presence? Really?


17.) 05 Aug 2020 20:48:02
Sell nobby Ed’s 2 then we would be looking Mbappe don’t you think.


18.) 06 Aug 2020 12:38:29
The only smokescreen will be the one John Henry is setting in front of his safe.


19.) 10 Aug 2020 01:02:01
Nonsense to say Origi can't be sold cos he scored 2 tap ins that came on a plate to him and then claim he got the winner in CL final when he scored to make 2-0 late on. To say it's great he never complains or desires to be a starter isn't a positive thing for a player who will unlikely improve if he's happy to coast along with little ambition. Whoever said Harry Kane would kill to achieve the moments origi had is laughable really when you consider a striker who's been prolific and leading the scoring charts for each season that origi has been in the league and 95% of that time he's spent not even as a starter while scoring the amount of goals each season that Kane usually notches in 1 month of that season, a player who's won the golden boot at the world cup also yet origi you claim has been the envy of Harry Kane 😂.

Bayern Munich have apparently dropped the fee required to sign Thiago by £10million. That puts the estimated fee for him at around £28million which now leaves a £5million gap between his asking price and what Liverpool are willing to spend on him, if you are to believe the various reports on all of this that is.
Also seen rumours this morning that Gini Wijnaldum, Sadio Mane and Caoimhín Kelleher (Kelleher is also linked with a loan move to Blackburn rovers for next season should be good experience for him if it happens. ) are going to sign new contracts fairly soon.

Kieran

1.) 29 Jul 2020 11:19:38
I love Thiago he’s a fantastic player but he’s similar to Gini it’s odd that as Gini signs a new deal we grt a player to replace him the one area we have too many players is midfield surely the funds would be better spent on a CB if the above players are signing new deals. Thanks for the info tho man.


2.) 29 Jul 2020 11:50:22
Gini Wijnaldum is a box to box kind of midfielder whereas Thiago is more of a deep lying playmaker, very different players imho. Pep Lijnders recently spoke about the need to evolve the style of play and the way we create chances, I believe the Thiago links are a result of seeking a different way of playing especially against teams that will sit deep and double up against the fullbacks.

As for the money side of things, policy is still sell to buy and with Shaqiri, Awoniyi, Origi, Grujic, Wilson, Karius, Ejaria, Larouci, Kane all available for sale with players like Lovren and Lallana gone already and the belief that young players can fill any extra gaps in the squad, this is a deal that they can do for a player and a price which was unthinkable this time last year. As for a CB I can't see Liverpool spending massively on a 3rd/ 4th choice CB, certainly not more than £30million.


3.) 29 Jul 2020 12:02:08
Sorry Ed to ask this again but did you actually confirm that we are looking to bring Thiago in this window or not? I no you said we’ve not approached Bayern but just wondered if this is all fact or fiction?

{Ed002's Note - Certainly there have been discussions with a representative of the player and Bayern Munich believe the player himself. Whilst Klopp is certainly keen there are concerns from at least two people in the club that his age, injury issues and lack of a sell on value mean that the club should step back. His huge wages may also cause concern amongst the players with perhaps Fabinho thinking he will be the one replaced. Liverpool have not approached his club.}


4.) 29 Jul 2020 12:48:23
Really am getting sick of the talking to reps and players. Obviously talking to player is flat out against the rules without the permission of the selling club but on top of that why talk to the player if everyone at the club haven’t made the decision to purchase him. Just stupid, don’t get it.


5.) 29 Jul 2020 12:49:35
With all that said Ed002 he certainly is a strange transfer target.


6.) 29 Jul 2020 12:51:52
Ok thank you Ed for clearing that up very much appreciated. I hope we haven’t spoke to the player before the club again then. How do you see this one panning out.

{Ed002's Note - I really don’t know.}


7.) 29 Jul 2020 15:03:02
Thiago is nothing like Gini, Thiago has a great eye for a pass, Gini doesn't, he is a work horse with the very odd goal or assist chucked in, Thiago is exactly what we need but as we know someone will have to go before we buy as the owners don't like sending money over the sea, IMO.


8.) 29 Jul 2020 19:59:09
Huge wages? Don’t get me wrong it’s big as I read it’s around £110k per week he’s on at Bayern but bloody Lovren and lallana were on that.


9.) 29 Jul 2020 20:37:23
That comment about gini shows you have little to no understanding of the role he plays for Liverpool and you should really go and watch him play more often to gain a better and more correct opinion of gini.


10.) 30 Jul 2020 07:02:00
He will replace Milner, who is off to Leeds, regardless of contract.


 

 

04 Jul 2020 01:03:15
Weston McKennie is available for less than £15million Schalke need to sell players to balance the books. He's a good player, versatile, with great potential resale value and is dirt cheap at the moment. He's looking like a textbook FSG/ Liverpool signing if ever there was one. Would be a great addition to the squad.

Kieran

1.) 04 Jul 2020 08:51:43
Would be an absolutely amazing signing, and has Klopp written all over him, super versatile can play everywhere in midfield and can cover CB and FB too. If this true I’d be very happy, he’s looked great for Schalke.


2.) 04 Jul 2020 19:20:20
I do like the potential he has to be a great player but id be hesitant to think he would be willing to come in with Fabinho and Trent both playing in his favoured roles and being signed as an initial back up option may not be enough for him to choose us over anyone else.


 

 

26 Jun 2020 00:21:10
This is my first time seeing Liverpool win a league title. I cannot describe how happy I am, it doesn't feel real yet but I want even more titles now. This is bliss, this is vindication and a testament to the endurance of those fans who have suffered more for longer than I have. Boom.

Kieran

1.) 26 Jun 2020 01:14:07
The last time we won the title I saw the scores come in on Teletext. There have been times when I never thought I’d see us win the league again. Enjoy this!


2.) 26 Jun 2020 02:20:27
It's relief, isn't it. I was 4 the last title we won, so not something I remember. I'm the same, thunderbird. There were times I thought we'd never win it again. Beautiful.

{Ed0666's Note - The last time we won the title was the year I lost my virginity. I’m 58 now. How do you like the, apples?


3.) 26 Jun 2020 04:00:22
i was 13 when liverpool last won a title, Thunderbird 2 is right, enjoy the moment for what it is and fingers crossed we will be serial title winners once again.


4.) 26 Jun 2020 09:11:27
Bloody hell 0666, I've heard of waiting for right woman but 28,yikes.

{Ed0666's Note - It was a social experiment. That was my excuse anyway mate


5.) 26 Jun 2020 09:13:13
Not many wait till they are 28 Ed, saving yourself or were you just a hard sell?

{Ed0666's Note - My body was a temple that no one wanted to pray in


6.) 26 Jun 2020 12:03:54
I was 22 when we last won it, some years ago I though it'd never happen again, especially during those dark Hodgson days. But at the end of the storm there's a golden sky.


7.) 26 Jun 2020 12:13:21
Better a temple than a garage that hundreds are going in and out of every day, LOL. 😉.


8.) 26 Jun 2020 14:52:31
I was 27 last time we won it. still hasn't sunk in. tears of joy watching jurgen and the lads last night. we are back on our perch. god bless the 96.


9.) 26 Jun 2020 15:45:10
Just to add to this, I was 14 when we last won it!

What a complete and utter relief!

Just before C.V. hit I thought to myself "how unlike Liverpool to get to the end of a competition with little or no drama, no 90th minute winner etc. We're walking this league and it should be all over in a week or two and then a gentle stroll for the rest of the season"!

Well, we shan't see a season like this again, regardless of the fact its been 30 years!


10.) 26 Jun 2020 17:48:49
I am not even born at that time 😊.


11.) 26 Jun 2020 18:19:38
Great to see you posting again zed, hope your keeping well.


12.) 26 Jun 2020 19:51:05
I was 10 when we last won it myself

Just wanted to say what an unbelievable time these last couple of seasons have been, we looked good last year and somehow improved on that this season

I've loved chatting with you all, especially during the live chats when it felt truly we were all in it together


Celebrations aplenty coming up, hope you all enjoy it every bit as I do.


13.) 28 Jun 2020 20:39:19
Ed was loosing your virginity as memorable as this title win Was she a special lady?


 

 

23 Jun 2020 20:50:49
Hi Eds, seen Liverpool have an interest in Igor Gomes from Sao Paolo and that a bid of around £20m might be submitted, no idea if he's any good or worth the reported fee. Would he run into any work permit difficulties for example lack of international games played etc etc. Also would he be an alternative type of signing to a Havertz type of player.

Kieran

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have not made any approach for Havertz. If you RTP you will see I have answered about Gomes.}


1.) 23 Jun 2020 22:31:01
Thanks Ed002. Yeah I was deliberately trying to avoid saying Havertz, I know Liverpool can't afford him. Still Igor Gomes is the right kind of transfer for Liverpool right now.


2.) 24 Jun 2020 09:58:08
Would this guy gets a work permit to UK ed02?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, the price is set at a high figure.}


3.) 24 Jun 2020 10:19:26
Ed002, with inquiry to his agent, are Liverpool genuinely looking to sign him? he looks good on youtube but that is not a good platform to judge players and I am not aware of the general opinion of him. how do you view him as a player?

{Ed002's Note - The questions to his agent would be (a) would the player be interested in a move to Liverpool, (b) what sort of costs would be involved. The price quoted to one of the sides with a declared interest was $50M (US) and the exchange rate is not good so that would be around £40M plus fees and concessions. Liverpool could raise most of the funds by selling Grujic and one or two others. But a move to Liverpool may not be an attractive idea to a young Brazilian so that would be an issue. So right now, it is an enquiry only.}

There's a bit of a debate happening around the office I'm working in and I'm wondering if anyone here might be able to settle it? Friend of mine is a Fulham fan and he's rightly or wrongly convinced that his team are going to sign Anastosis Donis from Reims. He believes that because he's born in Blackburn that he'll count as a home-grown player.
Most of the rest of them think that he won't count as home-grown because he's never been part of an academy structure in England or Wales and has never played any football at any level in the UK.
He said players like Donis and Haaland will qualify on the basis of their birth in England, the rest of them think they'd have to have played for 3 years at any level before the age of 21 to be home-grown players.
I've purposely stayed on the fence for this as I don't know enough about it, although I do believe one side more than the other. Any and all objective opinions are welcome if it'll bring a swift end to this "debate".

Kieran

1.) 23 Jan 2021 14:47:52
He might not need any sort of work permit, but he definitely won't qualify as being home grown if he's never played for a team in England/ wales.

{Ed002's Note - He is not a Home Grown player - where he is born is of no relevance. He also needs a work permit.}


 

 

25 Sep 2020 00:34:17
Who'd you keep and why? Brewster or Origi.

Kieran

{Ed0666's Note - neither because it’s time to move on.


1.) 25 Sep 2020 07:52:07
I took dog abuse for saying a few truths about origi the other week. yesterday proved why I was right about him. He is at David Ngog levels. The team has moved ten levels up and Origi is still stagnated there. Can't believe the lad doesn't want a move. He is never pushing Bobby, Minamino, or even the next guy to break from the academy in the future. A clear misfit in a team that played some brilliant interchanging football yesterday.


2.) 25 Sep 2020 08:24:54
Can’t believe I’m agreeing with Harry., though I’d probably slightly less harsh.


3.) 25 Sep 2020 09:01:04
You get abuse because you are so disrespectful to an LFC player Harry.

There are many of us who accept we’ve beyond Divock, but you can keep it classy when saying so. Also comparing him to David Ngog is a astounding exaggeration mate.

He’s been a decent servant to the club, scored some important goals and never complained. But yes, it’s time for him to move on.


4.) 25 Sep 2020 09:05:02
no way am I having he is at ngog level, absolute rubbish,
yep he has not progressed as we liked and hoped he would
but this guy scored and won us numerous big games and should be respected for that
yep he should leave for his own sake but don't disrespect the fella by talking rubbish come on now mate.


5.) 25 Sep 2020 09:06:59
I think he deserves more respect.
He played not a small part in our successful season.


6.) 25 Sep 2020 09:30:19
Origi just has the habit and mentality to turn up in the most tense moments. The first time I saw him he was playing exceptionally in the 2014 World Cup as a 20 year old. We can rely on him to make a difference when we need him most in high stakes games. He's like the exact inverse of Raheem Sterling - doesn't do much in easier games but turns up on the biggest occasions. He's non-HG so that counts against him, but I'd happily keep him instead of Shaqiri.


7.) 25 Sep 2020 09:38:02
Probably your worst post yet Harry. Disrespect at the highest level. City won last night, you sure you don't want to go back to them?


8.) 25 Sep 2020 09:41:35
He'll always be remembered for the goals he scored in big games for the club and rightly so. But the man needs to move on for himself and his own career.


9.) 25 Sep 2020 10:03:38
I'd rather keep origi, I really like and rate the lad. People are quick to forget he barely plays but when he does, how many times has he scored important goals for us? He can't play a lot because our front three are that good but IF he was given more regular playing time I have no doubt we'd all be really impressed. Having said that you have to consider what's good for the player, he isn't getting many minutes and isn't likely to anytime soon, if I'm Origi I'd want to be out. The best move Imo is to cash in on him and let him go and enjoy his career elsewhere.

Watch him shine though when he leaves, I really see something in him. He just needs to be playing often to show it.


10.) 25 Sep 2020 10:31:45
Yeah Harry the abuse wasn't for your opinion, it's for being such a disrespectful prick about it. Origi just doesn't fit our style of play for 90 minutes. His mind and feet aren't quick enough for our extremely fast intricate play, but he does have some very good attributes. I think he'd do very well in a team that has less possession and plays a more direct or counter-attacking type of game. Hopefully he and Grujic do enough against Lincoln and Arsenal in the next round to impress a scout and attract a suitor. Shaqiri almost certainly did already but personally I really want him to stay at least for one more season.


11.) 25 Sep 2020 11:14:51
David Ngog level - perfect example of why you can't be taken seriously Harry, always to the extreme with your opinions.

Why are players either amazing or terrible?

It looks like we have outgrown Origi, we are now probably too good for him. David Ngog level, ridiculous comment, Origi is far better than that and deserves more respect.


12.) 25 Sep 2020 12:20:48
I agree Salah, guy always does his best but our front 3 are simply on a far higher level.

Has a real knack of scoring for us too and I think he'll do well if he moves, but just do not like the disrespect he gets, it's actually well beyond disrespect and just pure vitriol.

You see this and the abuse young Williams took last night, despite winning the game by a country mile and just shake the head in bewilderment.

Y. N. W. A. used to really mean something, we're better than this.


13.) 25 Sep 2020 13:57:19
Why doesn’t David Ngog get a bit of respect too as an ex-Liverpool player? Always tried his best and scored a few.
Origi is a superb player imo but doesn't have the right attributes for our current side. he's physical, good header, cracking accurate shot and a fair bit of pace. He would excell at a team which plays direct football with a big man up front. Completely convinced that if we let him go to another Premier League side he will make us regret it.


14.) 25 Sep 2020 14:01:07
Spot on Bill.


15.) 25 Sep 2020 14:55:41
Origi has managed to score some excellent and vitally important goals on the biggest stage despite not being a natural fit for our system, or getting much game time to find any rythym. He may not be the quality of our front three, but that doesn’t make his contribution any less important and has been an important part of the reason we've gone on the incredible run of trophies over the last three seasons (eg the goal against Barcelona! )

That ability to come off the bench and score crucial goals is a talent that is not easily replaceable. Respect to the lad.


16.) 25 Sep 2020 23:25:34
@IDreamofGini, did you regret us selling David Ngog? Did you think selling Ngog was a mistake?


17.) 26 Sep 2020 04:51:09
I really like him. Total respect for what he's done for lfc. Harry, you're bang out of order.

But tactically. We have taki, who plays in the middle. And jota who can play centrally but can also play, and is probably more natural on the wing, which is divs position lately. But, if you want 2 players for each position, that means 3 players to cover mane Bobby and salah. So jota mino and origi.


 

 

24 Sep 2020 20:44:58
Divock Origi is like a fish out of water tonight, looks out of place in this side. I don't know if that's an example of how far and how fast this team has evolved or if Origi is just stagnating and needs a consistent run in the team, or possibly both.

Kieran

1.) 24 Sep 2020 21:03:33
Has good attributes, but he doesn't suit how we play, imo. And we don't use him as an 'alternative' option through the middle often enough. Plenty of places where he'd be first choice and would do well, should be moved on for his own good.


2.) 24 Sep 2020 21:42:17
Took his chance well but played like a man trying to avoid injury to protect a potential move, can't really blame him.


3.) 24 Sep 2020 21:46:16
I’ll nvr forget his big goals! But have to says he’s brutal all that size and he doesn’t use it he’d rather a step over! He doesn’t even jump when defending a cross to even cause distraction! He could be defenders nightmare but he’s far from it!


4.) 24 Sep 2020 21:50:17
Agree On Origi. Lovely to see him get a goal at the end mind.


5.) 24 Sep 2020 22:18:19
Took his goal well and had a very powerful effort well saved before it.


6.) 24 Sep 2020 23:04:37
Needs to move for the sake of his career and sanity. As was said above he's stagnating at the club now and needs to get away. Will always be a popular character with the fans because of the goals he scored.


 

 

03 Sep 2020 18:01:07
Gini Wijnaldum off to Barcelona for £15million isn't to bad in my opinion, last year of his contract and was looking for a payday from Liverpool. We didn't/ won't break the wage structure so he's off.

It's sad to lose him because he's been immense over the last few years, always put a good shift in. I wish it wasn't the case that he's going, I can only wish him well.

Kieran

1.) 03 Sep 2020 18:38:00
Front row, Kop End. Gini Wijnaldum vs Barcelona. A memory I’ll remember for the rest of my life, if he departed for Spain I’ll wish him all the best and thank him for the important goals and great memories. These players are gods for finally winning that Premier League and Gini is no different. If he goes He’ll be missed but never forgotten.


2.) 03 Sep 2020 18:40:07
So if Liverpool sign Thiago they won't be breaking their wage structure either?


3.) 03 Sep 2020 19:00:38
Why. Why are well sling a 50mil player for 15 mil. Another masterstroke for Edwards. Why are we letting our selves getting ripped of? Or are we trying to help gini move to the club he wants to play for.
I'm gutted he's gping.


4.) 03 Sep 2020 19:13:54
Hes in the last year of his contract mate. simple.


5.) 03 Sep 2020 19:17:35
9 months left on his contract and his age would be the main reason, although I do think 15m is way to cheap, id value him similar to thiago, who is currently valued at 30m euro, 25m. If he goes, which I hope not, he'll go with my absolute thanks and best wishes, I'll never forget that Barcelona game and his name will go down his history at our club for that game alone.


6.) 03 Sep 2020 19:21:27
Kieran where are you getting the news on Wijnaldum? Nothing showing anywhere but your post. Would like to know your source.


7.) 03 Sep 2020 19:21:54
Is this a wind up
There is no deal announced anywhere.


8.) 03 Sep 2020 19:22:15
Nothing is decided on Gini yet chaps so let’s not get to stressed about it. No contact from Barcelona either. Plus don’t forget it’s Gini who hasn’t signed the Contract.


9.) 03 Sep 2020 19:23:44
If it’ is fsg policy one our and one in have to say it’s crap I love gini hardly missed games I’ll surely miss him and that infectious big grin! Some big personalities have left this season hope it doesn’t haunt us.


10.) 03 Sep 2020 19:29:29
You will not get 50 mill for a player in the last year of a contract when they can wait a few months and get him for free.


11.) 03 Sep 2020 20:12:08
Jay Dub red, First off, this is fake news. Second of all, we have * or 9 midfielders in the team right now so of course if you want to sign a midfielder, another midfielder has to go to make space in the squad. What is wrong with that, ?


12.) 03 Sep 2020 20:51:28
Mental to think of this was true and that’s a big If. Gini would move for 15 mill and arsenal are wanting 30 mill for Maitlan niles. Crazy world.


13.) 03 Sep 2020 21:46:39
Red mister gini is one of the better ones. Ox shaq keita all injury prone Jones only a kid and raw Grujic struggling for a wp! Yeah your right pal 👍🏼 All above (bar jones) should be sold before gini If u ask me.


14.) 03 Sep 2020 23:06:17
Gini is a top midfielder, he’ll be a big loss if he goes. I just hope there is some kind of plan in place if he does.


15.) 04 Sep 2020 04:35:23
I feel like it doesn't really matter which club it is. if you have 8 midfielders in the first team, then it makes sense to move one or 2 on before you bring one in.

Seen rumours that Koeman is looking to terminate Luis Suárez's contract at Barcelona
Would anyone take him back to Liverpool if he was available on a "free"

Kieran

1.) 25 Aug 2020 12:03:36
Yeah, then make him wash Firmino's boots.


2.) 25 Aug 2020 12:11:32
Kieran, excellent use of inverted commas. You have probably already worked out that a three year contract at £150,000 per week would cost the club £23.4 million.


3.) 25 Aug 2020 13:10:57
Forget what he’s done, let’s focus on the players ability.
His legs are going, he doesn’t have that yard anymore. the finishing is still there though he’s still got 20 goals a season in him.
But his wages, his age and the fact he’s not good enough anymore for this team, all points to No.


4.) 25 Aug 2020 13:19:58
If finances allowed, I would have him back in a heartbeat.


5.) 25 Aug 2020 13:46:34
Leaving aside his previous spell here, he probably isn't good enough anymore to displace any of our three and won't come here to sit on the bench.


6.) 25 Aug 2020 14:05:37
If we added a players wages into his feel it would add 20mil approx on all our big signings. And the term "free transfer" would be abolished.

I'd take him on a free. Can cover salah's wing and can play as an out and out striker. Would probably hamper brewster but the kid was learn from him. (we have origi for manes side)

I don't think he'd move to be a sub, but I think he'd earn the odd start in training. Yeah I'd take him.


7.) 25 Aug 2020 14:15:31
Aside from the fact that he's a cretin that embarrassed the club, Anotherr ageing player? No thanks.


8.) 25 Aug 2020 15:33:36
There is value in aging players like suarez though. A world class player. If he on a free then you might get a year or two of very high class cover, world class on occasions.

I'd bet my trousers that we don't sign him though. Liverpool don't go backwards in the transfer market.

Who was the last player we "brought back"? Robbie fowler, right?


9.) 25 Aug 2020 17:28:59
Waitisover, have Suarez back to do what, exactly? The guy is pretty much done and on his last legs if they have not already gone completely.


10.) 25 Aug 2020 18:19:39
Who was the last player we "brought back"? Robbie fowler, right?

No Craig Bellamy in 2011 was after God.


11.) 25 Aug 2020 20:37:22
If he does somehow return I'd like him to be to Rhian Brewster what Gary McAllister was to a young Steven Gerrard. He'd be very expensive but at the same time cheaper than signing a younger player on a longer contract that could possibly restrict the development of the younger players.

Gini Wijnaldum is a box to box kind of midfielder whereas Thiago is more of a deep lying playmaker, very different players imho. Pep Lijnders recently spoke about the need to evolve the style of play and the way we create chances, I believe the Thiago links are a result of seeking a different way of playing especially against teams that will sit deep and double up against the fullbacks.

As for the money side of things, policy is still sell to buy and with Shaqiri, Awoniyi, Origi, Grujic, Wilson, Karius, Ejaria, Larouci, Kane all available for sale with players like Lovren and Lallana gone already and the belief that young players can fill any extra gaps in the squad, this is a deal that they can do for a player and a price which was unthinkable this time last year. As for a CB I can't see Liverpool spending massively on a 3rd/ 4th choice CB, certainly not more than £30million.

Might move for Rashica if Werder Bremen get relegated and Shaqiri leaves.

Thanks Ed002. Yeah I was deliberately trying to avoid saying Havertz, I know Liverpool can't afford him. Still Igor Gomes is the right kind of transfer for Liverpool right now.

Personally if I was conducting the Kent transfer I wouldn't bother with a buy-back clause. I think Liverpool should just take a deal close to the valuation of the player and insert a sell-on fee if possible, try not to cause any serious fuss over the deal and get it done.

The potential deal for Boubacar Kamara is interesting because of two things;
1)The current financial situation at Marseille means they have to sell in order to balance the FFP books.

2)The player only has a year remaining on his current contract.
Waiting this long into the window, and with european windows shutting at different times of the month, may work for Liverpool in making a cheap (ish) take it or leave it kind of deal, Marseille could fear on not making as much from him or may even lose him for £250,000 (compensation fee) next summer on a free transfer.
The Harry Wilson deal is a good one for Wilson and for Liverpool as he is almost certain to start immediately at Bournemouth considering the injuries they have to both Brooks and Ibe. He'll get some good minutes in the Premier League and that will prove whether he is good enough or not. I don't think there is an option to buy at the end of the loan.

Francois Kamano is an interesting potential signing because he can cover anywhere across the front three and he is almost as fast as Mané, giving us pace on the bench that we did not have before. Bordeaux selling Kamano to Liverpool will help them sign Cristian Pavón from under the noses of LA Galaxy (Cue transfer domino effect)
I think it's wonderful that we are signing players and we only get a slight hint of an incoming transfer when the deal is about to be signed, like Dorukhan Tokoz, that's doing business the right way in my opinion.

Signing in a keeper, my money is on Çakir from Trabzonspor, wouldn't mind having Pepe Reina back as an alternative. Kelleher will remain as 3rd choice.

£6million and Antonio Nunez for Michael Owen. I think Nunez had a worse injury record than Owen, I don't remember him playing too much although I do think he scored in the League Cup final against Chelsea.

The Championship Manager legend that was Cherno Samba is one of the biggest stars that never made it I remember hearing about.
From an Irish point of view I remember the hype and hope that surrounded Terry Dixon.

Lads your all wrong he's off to North Korea. Wait wait I mean Bray Wanderers, sure it's close enough, at least to our former chairman it is anyway 😂.
Messi must have always dreamed of running out into the abyss or as it's officially known "The Carlisle Grounds".
