I posted around a week ago that we have made a bid for deli Ali. Only got the info from a friend.
With what has been going on over last 24 hours my friend is insistent that it's Ali but we are quite short on the asking price.

Alli is over rated and over priced.

We should never have let him slip the net. He supports liverpool and if my memory serves me correctly the MK Dons manager at the time all but delivered Alli to Rodgers who declined the offer.

Well that's a lie brez

Brendan met with Dele at the Hilton and everything was all but sorted apart from deeming 5 million to much.

Clearly my memory didn't serve me that correctly.

Wasn't Rodgers fault over the money he wanted him to sign it was others at the club wouldn't sanction payin the extra.

In response to Ali signing for Liverpool, I read that the reason Ali didn’t sign for us was Stevie G was in the hotel where he met Rogers but it was late and he was in bed. Ali took it that he wasn’t valued and signed for Spurs instead.

I await the replies but I am sure that’s what I read.

Forget about the Ali to Liverpool saga. I'm sure there are hundreds more examples of clubs including others at Liverpool where a bargain was let slip through the net because of a simple under sight.

It also works the other way. Look at Inter. They sold whatshisname to us for around the £8 million mark.

Interesting reasons. The only one I’ve ever heard or seen is that we thought the wages he wanted were too high otherwise the deal is done. Anyway on the pitch he’s a petulant and dirty player who has been lucky (or protected) to date otherwise he would have 2 or 3 more straight reds to his name by now.

Personally I’d rather see Eriksen as he seems to have been the one really making them tick.

My understanding of the Alli situation was that Rodgers wanted to buy him and put him in the under 19s or under 23s and Potch wanted him for the 1st team so he chose Spurs.

Ali does have a bad attitude, and he will get caught out soon, yes he is protected, why, well the powers that be, want the top four teams in every cup semi final, and to stay in the top four, making more TV money, yes, money talks .

If rodgers had been to one to coach alli, and not pochettino, i doubt he would be the same player he is now. I think he has unfairly come under criticism for no good reason, he has the unwanted burden of being english and being built up for every small good thing he does, and knocked down for every tiny bad thing he does. Gerrard was always getting sent off at his age. He has a lot of talent and by his mid twenties will have developed into a great player imo, so long as he keeps his head down. He is an unfair victim of the culture of two extremes we have here in england.

Kwhizz I remember reading the same thing about Gerrard being in bed and Ali not feeling important enough because of it 😂 good ol silly journalism lol.

Apparently you are correct. Mystery Player X is Dele Alli. but Spurs unlikely to sell to us.

The story which has been confirmed by Rodgers was that personal terms where agreed with Alli but the club would not match Spurs bid of 5m which seems insignificant now but at the time it seemed a fairly high price for a player in the third tier.
