Eds, does Liverpool still hold any interest in Julian Brandt or has that ship long sailed?

{Ed001's Note - nothing sailed, he just wasn't interested in the move at that time.}

And now ed? wouldn't make much sense as I think he wanted assured playing time. can't see Mane dropping out the starting 11.

{Ed001's Note - like you said, unlikely he would change his mind.}

I think he can play the role we want Fekir for. Won't mind him if we don't get Fekir.

Ed1, if memory serves me correctly Klopp wanted him but Brandt wanted game time assurances? If so do you feel he is suited to that ACM role we are looking to fill or better utalised on the inside forward role where Klopp intended to use him before buying Salah.

{Ed001's Note - I think he would be equally useful in either role, but he will not get the assurances he is seeking.}

Shame he is still seeking that just from a selfish standpoint, as I would love us to sign him. I feel or how I look at it, is if Klopp were to move to try sign him shouldn't he trust his ability to play either role, anyways will be interesting to see who eventualy fills that ACM position.

If he'd have signed for us when we wanted him, he'd have had more minutes at the World Cup, guaranteed. Regardless of him wanting assurances.

On the plus side, it shows his character. He isn’t in the sport JUST for the money, he actually wants to play and not get paid to be sat on his arse all day lol.

Not necessarily Epic Potato.

Remind me how many minutes Sane got?

Maybe the playing time thing was because it was a word cup year? If so he could be more relaxed about it now. Can’t see it happening to be honest, but would be a great signing for us.
