If Fekir deal is done because of a knee injury issue then I think we need to look at our medical team. Fekir has played two seasons now since the injury and continues to play, surely scouting the player would have known this and not made us look amateur and foolish yet again. Look at Loic Remy, we had agreed a deal with him and the medical team said he had a heart issue. Weird never stopped Chelsea signing him and not recall him stop playing football because of it. Sometimes I wonder if it's case of.

IMO. Either Lfc pulled a fast one or lyon want a star performance at WC. i hope Lyon stepped in otherwise it discredits lfc. Lyon have always stated after WC and the July accounts statement is just a rouse. problem is if he's a star will lfc pay extra £ Man u/ city/ bayern/ chelsea will. I think we've lost him as we didn't get brandt or keita (for 2017.)

Who suggested it has anything to do with his medical? The same people who said a deal had been agreed?

It's a bit painful reading pre-emptive digs at our medical team without: (A) knowing whether he did or did not fail the medical and (B) whether he does go on to develop long term knee issues. In fact, quite the contrary, that ED002 is suggesting that the door for a deal being struck is still open, which does suggest that the medical is not the sticking point.

And bringing up Loic Remy is a bit tragic because the way heart diseases are, doctors can only calculate the statistical probability of getting a sickness. Nobody can guarantee that a person will definitely go on to have the illness. And who knows what precautions Remy is taking now since that medical, and if it's impacting his on pitch performance.

Sorry for the rant. But people shouldn't give abuse to medical professionals who know what they are doing- it didn't look pretty when Mourinho tried it at Chelsea.

Well said fella. People just can't let this take it's course. If we really really want him we will pay whatever if we maybe are holding some money back to try and get Allison then we won't. Who know apart from Ed002.

It’s the same medical team that couldn’t diagnose a concussion!

{Ed001's Note - how is that relevant? You do talk some crap. Ignorant crap at that. Time you stopped trolling.}

Bluenose here just wanted to explain it's nowt to do with your medical team Baz they won't know about any issues until they get the hands on the guy we had the same issue when we tried to sign Leroy Fer from FC Twente we found a problem with his knee and went back looking to make changes to payment to cover ourselves they then pulled the plug the fact he went on and played full seasons for Norwich and Swansea mean nowt to me as I wouldn't want my club to take any kind of risk.

I remember the Van Nistelrooy transfer to Manchester United, United pulled the plug due to fitness concerns, the very next day Van Nistelrooy blew his knee out. Just because a player is playing games doesn’t mean he is physically 100%, Fekir is a £50 million investment, the club has to protect itself.

Baz2 we’ve looked amateur and foolish not because of the medical department but because of the fans. I say this because if people just let the transfer go through the motions insead of all this hype and bull saying saying it’s a done deal and bragging all over social media about a player that hadn’t officially signed. The medical team have done what they’re supposed to do, the scouts will have come and said player x would fit perfectly into our system Klopp and the other people involved would say ok then it’s down to Edwards and others to negotiate then the medical team do what their supposed to do. Unfortunately if media are to believed it has highlighted a problem with his knee. Would you go out and buy an expensive car after someone had highlighted a potentially expensive problem down the line?

Curiosity killed the cat. This is no different than the process in most transfers, the issue is that we, the fans seek out every info we can gather, and our nosyness is what thrives the dissapointment. I don't blame any of the people involved, but I feel sorry for Fekir, because not only is his prefered move on fragtile ground, but he's been exposed to the medias as damaged goods aswell. I would still love to have him join us, and I hope something can be worked out for all parties.

Guys i don't think you should all suddenly become doctors. If he had have failed his medical i doubt he would have done the promo stuff after.

That being said if it was anything to do with a medical its pretty daft to be attacking the medical team. Some of the posts are coming off as really weird.

To want sturridge and lallana gone because they are injury prone but then want to sign a player who may potentially be injury prone doesn't add up.

I personally think it had very little to do with the medical because like i said at start i don't think it would have progressed to the promo stuff.

Ive been saying to my mates that this one wouldn't be a straight foward one. Liverpool and lyon must have been apart in either the total price or the structure of payments.

Lyon have merely decided to use the publicity to hard ball negotiations. They are well within their rights to demand whatever they deem fit for their employee and captain.

I still think it will be done bit most likely won't be till after the world cup now.

Agree with wolverine. It has nothing to do with the medical it’s been passed no issues, the stumbling block as said above must be fee, structure of payments or something of that ilk.

I personally y think it will still happen, in terms of playerwagessigning on fee, medical etc that is all done from what I can see so it is quite possible the deal could stil be finalised whilst the player is at the World Cup.

To give my two penneth I can imagine it'll still probably get done just need to be patient if not I'm sure we'll have other targets.

Riomazy- you can either learn from mistakes or use them as an excuse to repeat them.

More to this than an old knee injury. More to do with Lyon than Liverpool I reckon and it's maybe not totally dead but let's all wait until it's announced on the LFC official website, there's a long summer ahead.

Hilarious. Now it's the scouting team's fault because they didn't know the medical risks (which only a medical team can know after examination) or it's the medical team's fault because they didn't give a go ahead to a player that they may or may have not have assessed as risky? We really have some specimens on here sometimes. It's like watching a blindfolded man in a dark room, being given a bat to swing at the ball.

Riomazy - maybe you should actually take a look at the "2 full seasons" that he’s had?

2016/ 17 season he was out for just over 3 weeks (August 28th - September 20th) and I think had slight surgery again on the same knee.

Last season (in fact, as recent as this year) he was also out for over a month (February 26th - April 2nd) because of the same knee. Not sure if he got surgery this time like.

So no he hasn’t had "2 full seasons" because the injury is recurring and it will likely happen again at some point this season and the next and so on.

just hope that our next signing doesn't have a dodgy knee, back, ankle,
if its risky, move on,
so simple .
