Ante coric liking more Liverpool photos on Instagram including one of kloppo with a beaming smile. Really hope we get this lad even though it's probably unlikely. Amazing talent.

He should stay put and get regular football IMO.
We could field 2 teams of midfielders at the minute, another would be literally BONKERS. 😝.

potentially agree with you Ron, unless Lallana and Markovic go no point in bringing someone in, i'd hate to lose out though - buy and loan back for the season?

Yeah change the name of the club to chelsea. At least your name would be on the premier league trophy.

I can only hope that we end up with a loan program that is as well run as Chelsea's apparently is. As it stands at least they have a plan for each of their players. In the last few years we have had to watch a number of players see their careers go backwards by joining us. In my opinion, one of the best things Klopp has done is look at the way we treat our youngsters and seek to fix some of the issues with it. Buy/ loan back works well if the player is settled in a club which suits the way we want our players to play.

{Ed001's Note - Chelsea's is awful! Very few of the players improve due to it. They very rarely get anyone for their first team from it, which should be the sole aim of the club. It is just a pointless waste of resources.}

Thank dog you disagreed with that last post, Ed.
Chelsea's policy is just totally selfish and scatter-gun.
They don't give a toss about the individual players.

Just a few examples: Ken Omeruo, a 31 cap international who has been bouncing from club to club for 4 years. Cristian Cuevas, another full international whose career was just thrown on the dung-pile. Marco van Ginkel, big things were expected of him until Chelski came along and interrupted his natural development. Lucas Piazón, a very talented player last seen warming the bench at Reading. His career has been on a steady downward curve since signing for dem greedy blues. And Christian Atsu? I never understood why he signed for Chelsea or why Chelsea signed him. He wasn't that young and was already performing heroics for Ghana. But, leaving a CL club like Porto after winning the league and then being sent to Vitesse Arnhem the next day? Wtf is that about!?

Good post Jurgen Meister, Chelsea just seem to speculate because they have the money and buy whatever they can. You'd even wonder are they just scared they'd miss out on someone so they buy them anyway.

{Ed001's Note - no, they plan to develop them for a profit. It is not fear or about buying whoever they can, there is a plan in place. The issue, for me, is that it is taking away resources from the number one priority of the club - the first team.}

ED001 glad you said that, I shied away from outright saying it because it is more speculative than what I said but has always felt that way. It is wrong on so many levels, as you say they don't develop players (meaning they then go out and buy more for first team), players don't develop, the resources available to other clubs are reduced unless they want to loan (with no guarantees of getting more than a season), wasn't there a recent transfer where they basically gazumped Palace and then lent the guy back to the selling club?

{Ed001's Note - I can't remember, they have nipped in and beaten clubs to buy up young talent, but then so have we, with the sole intention of developing them.}

Think you mean Michael Hector. Yeah, that (and Djilobodji) was a weird one. He could be starting for Palace but instead, the only minutes he's played on their US tour were on the golf course. Once Zouma comes back he won't even be fifth choice and Conte is probably going to spunk some big money on a center-back very soon. While they also have Andreas Christensen coming back from his time as an actual footballer next summer. Chelsea are just vulgar human traffickers.
