I've read links to Mina, Kjaer, Vida and others. Do you know of any real interest in defenders this window? We look to be well stocked but I don't suppose that means we won't sell. Any insight would be brilliant.

On that note, it’s probably a bad time to request a transfer skarkopod (misspelt) .?

Be silly not to get vida.

Boss with Lovren and wouldn't cost the earth.

What do you mean well stocked.

Vvd and Lovren? All season. Matip and klavan are not up to scratch my friend.

Vida looks too much like a James Bond villain for my liking.

Vida? world cup syndrome at its finest. He's not good enough and is not a significant improvement on Matip And Klavan. Plus we need to consider the fact that Joe Gomez will be getting more game time next season. If we're going to bring in a centre back we need to be aiming higher or younger.

Why do people get their knickers in a twist over guys like Klavan? Does a solid job as a 4th choice centre back when he plays. Which is all you need from a 4th choice.

If we’re not spending on a keeper, latest rumour is that we’re giving Ward a chance, then I’d like us to also lodge a bid for Alderweireld.

{Ed0333's Note - Are you a gossip queen Zeddicus? Very few people genuinely nowadays know the clubs transfer business and it’s people like you that get preyed on by the social media ITK’s who obtain notoriety and are compensated financially. Do yourself a favor mate just relax enjoy the ride and see what transpires in the next 3 weeks. Do you think Ward is a Premiership winning standard keeper Zed?

You know what Brisbane, was a massive critic of Klavan but some of his performances last season were top notch. He’s a decent back up centre back who is very no nonsense. He struggles against pace but aerial stuff he handles very competently.

I am the queen of gossip, how did you know, Ed0333?!

I’m very relaxed about the ride, mate. For all the hype on here about Ward over the last 2-3 years, and if we can’t get who we want, then why not give the lad a chance? Don’t get me wrong, my big preference is to get a marked upgrade on our current keepers, and I have seen enough of Migs to know he’s not the answer to any question. I had high hopes for Karius, but he still seems to have the baggage from CL final, and the fans will be all over him (ours and others) so I suspect we may not see him as a regular. I don’t know if Ward is CL level, we’ve hardly seen him in a Liverpool shirt. His distribution is meant to be very good though, so I wonder why he’s not been given a chance.

As to Alderweireld, I just think he’s a fantastic defender! If Spurs can be persuaded to sell, I’d love us to be in for him, as him and VVD would, I believe, form a great partnership.

No real answers for me, and I’m not ITk at all, nor a member of the Twitterati. Most of my info comes from here!

{Ed0333's Note - I’m pretty sure Alderweireld will not be coming to us as much as I like him. Levy is a shrewd operator, will get top dollar for him and I’m not confident Liverpool will spend massively on someone whose 30 this year. If they were to spend on an old man, my hope would be Vida, he wouldn’t cost the world, is exactly what we need (IMO) and comes with an understanding with lovren. Regarding Ward I just feel he’s playing catch up and that’s gonna inhibit him. I would have played him more last season and seen if he was up to the task. I adore Klopp but he is massively at fault for this keeper situation. He should have been more ruthless with Migs got rid of him sooner and had Ward and Karius fighting for the Jersey. I still think Ward has something about him but my fear is he lost that season of competitive football which could be damaging?
