I think RBL will cave in. Considering Next years release clause and Keita wants the move. I've seen enough to say he's brilliant all round, can tackle, very fleet footed skips away, can dribble, nice burst of speed, puts excellent balls through. He really is sensational. I'm 43 lifelong red. Remember king Kenny signing after Keegan left for Germany.

I just saw same about Keita 74.5m + sell on clause but I didn't post coz its an unreliable source.

Agree1 Disagree0

You could have Maldini and Hansen in the prime and it would t make a difference as we have no one to protect the back four bar Henderson.

Agree3 Disagree51

When England leave Europe, what effect will it have on football here what with transfers and what not, or is it still up in the air?

{Ed033's Note - i would imagine nothing will change as it's only a pretend exit anyway.

Agree3 Disagree2

22 Jul 2017 23:25:37
Nothing will happen! They are still crap as a team!

22 Jul 2017 21:42:59
I need to go to the conspiracy page to post further lol but yes I agree on the pretend exit.

22 Jul 2017 20:25:00
After that showing FSG wouldn't dare to sell phil. Such an important player! Sometimes a CM, sometimes a LW, sometimes up front!
His vision to lob the ball up and pick Salah is what you call world class!
This team wouldn't function without him and that was evident in the second half!

Agree5 Disagree3

22 Jul 2017 20:41:39
Agree. He is the heart and soul behind the team, if we sell, we suffer.

22 Jul 2017 21:59:21
The team would have to adapt if he wants to go.

Im a year or so if he goes injury free young Woodburn is going to be the main man.

He seems naturally to find great space in the 18 yard box.

22 Jul 2017 17:17:00

Mane Firmino/ Sturridge Salah

Coutino (Keita? ) Bags of skill bit am I the only one who thinks we're lacking height? Especilly on an ice cold day against some of the physical teams in the land.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2017 17:26:23

Height for attacking or height for defending?

22 Jul 2017 17:29:24

Why would we need height when Klopp does not carer for tall forwards. Benteke ring a bell?

22 Jul 2017 17:30:32

For me defending.

22 Jul 2017 17:38:40

Height in general.

22 Jul 2017 17:41:34

Isn't van dijk 6'4 ;)

22 Jul 2017 17:42:52

I thought that looking at our team today. We could get bullied physically off some of the bigger teams we need to have a good balance between skill and physicality.

22 Jul 2017 17:54:11

Perhaps in defense, but I feel we have some decent physical options in midfield/ upfront in Hendo, Can, Grujic, Sturridge, Origi who are reasonable in the air, but also have other skills. don't think we need to go down the route of someone like Benteke, as effective as he can be.

22 Jul 2017 18:40:42

Because the great Barcelona team of late were all 6 foot plus.

22 Jul 2017 18:55:34

We have some physically strong forwards and mid fielders who won’t be bullied off the ball too easily. As well as the little technicians who do get bullied if caught but sometimes they can wiggle away with their agility.



But anyway we do have decent sized players;



6'0" - Can.

6'1" - Solanke and Origi, Klavan.

6'2" - Studge, Lovren, Gomez, Sakho (shame he won’t be playing for us though)

6'3" - Gurjic.

6'4" - VVD (if/ when he signs)

6'5" - Matip



(Most are rounded up which is the nearest value)



We do have some height even from the main starting 11 and they all have some decent strength too.

22 Jul 2017 18:58:17

Rome, Barcelona aren't in a "physical" league like the Prem. Technical players work perfect there.

22 Jul 2017 22:23:25
I would like us to be more dangerous from set pieces we very rarely look like scoring from corners or free kicks.

22 Jul 2017 23:13:44
Barca were battered by Chelsea playing physical long ball stuff.

22 Jul 2017 17:33:36
United fan in peace. I come over from time to time to air my views.

What I'm wondering is your expectations for the coming season? I'm not over the moon with United's transfer window so far, although there's still plenty of time. The two we have got, Lukaku and Lindelof, I think are good additions and both will strengthen us. I just think we need two full backs and another wide attacker. Probably a CM too. I expect Pogba and Miki to improve with a year under the belt. Currently I think we're in a fight for top 4 as it stands. With the resources and money spent anything less that a full on title assault would be a failure in my eyes.

Onto Liverpool, for years a lot of fans have hidden behind the "we can't compete with the big boys in the market". Well if as expected you are to spend £70m on a CB, and £80m on a CM who's has 1 stand out season, that excuse can't be used any longer. I remember last year a lot of people slagging the Pogba transfer off as ludicrous yet most on here are happy for you to spend £80m on a players who's achieved less. Klopps in his third season this year and I believe Some give him an easier ride compared to past managers due to his personality.

I think you have a very good chance of the title this season, especially is you strengthen further with them two signings. If you make them signings I think the title has to be your expectation and anything less is a failure, likewise united.

Does anyone disagree? Would anyone be happy spending £150m on two players plus th £50m spent already to finish 3rd?

Very interesting season coming up. I think Jose and Klopp need PL success this season, or we could see someone given the boot come this time next year.

Thoughts?

Stand.

Agree6 Disagree1

22 Jul 2017 18:25:07
Stand-United

We all know there's too much money in football these days, but unfortunately if you want to compete, you sometimes have to spend big to get top players.
More important for me, as far as Liverpool is concerned, is that we stay as injury free as possible this season. It doesn't matter how much you spend if your team is ravaged with injuries. I think that was a big reason why we didn't finish higher last season.
Klopp had a lot of injuries to key players throughout last season to contend with and that wasn't his fault.
If we can keep our players fit. we'll definately be challenging this season, even more so if we land VVD and Keita.

22 Jul 2017 18:38:02
Hi there Stand, well I expect to win the title at this time of the year lol. Although I think it will be a similar season to last . Us the 2 Manchester clubs Spurs Arsenal and Chelsea competing for the title and top 4. Impossible to predict just now have to see how the season progresses it only takes an injury crisis to derail a title challenge, look what happened to us last season after Christmas. 5 of the challengers are in CL and Arsenal have the Thursday/ Sunday scenario to deal with which is a nuisance unless you actually win it .

22 Jul 2017 19:43:59
UTD Fan feels sorry for Liverpool spending £70 mill on a CM who is light years ahead of what they have at their disposal! lol!

22 Jul 2017 20:49:22
Keita is light years ahead of Pogba and Hererra is he? I don't recall you begging to sign the lad 6 months ago before being linked? What point did I say I feel sorry for Liverpool? I said if Liverpool make these two signings they can no longer hide behind the excuse of not spending.

22 Jul 2017 22:09:57
Utd have been used to having more financial muscle than most teams in the world.

As far as I know and hopefully the eds could help out here. That at one time or another Utd broke the world record transfer for goalkeeper, centre half, Midfielder and striker.

Utd appointed the wrong man as manager, the special one may bring success but at the expense of Utds.
Football Soul.

22 Jul 2017 22:16:53
We've got to remember that transfer fees have gone mad. IsLukaku a £75m striker? No more than VVD is a £70m defender, and walker is certainly not worth £50m, nor Mendy £52m.

However, if we spend that money, at least we are not being outspent by our direct rivals - you, city, Chelsea and Arsenal. We will have backed our manager to his chosen targets (whether 1st choice or not) which is all I can hope for in a close season.

Let's get the transfers done and then roll on the next 3 weeks!

22 Jul 2017 22:41:24
Hi Eds.
Sorry made a post with mistakes in it.
I said Utd broke the world record for players in certain posistions.
I probably should have said British record to be safe
Id appreciate it not being posted if it incorrect.

Or please edit as you see fit.

22 Jul 2017 23:16:12
Ok, I'm not disputing united have spent? What I'm saying is it seems your now playing on a level playing field. If you finished 3rd without a trophy again would that be good enough?

22 Jul 2017 15:57:42
Did anybody else notice Coutinho's face after posing for a picture after getting his medal?
Not sure if it was tiredness (him or me xD) but he kinda looked upset even as hendo lifted the trophy he just clapped with no real effort, and during the walk around too he looked 'off' 😣😣😣

Hope its just my eyes playing tricks cos i've been awake for 34 hours (any insomniac crew here? ) But he looked sad 😞.

Agree2 Disagree3

22 Jul 2017 19:41:12
I noticed his massive smile after Salahs goal.

{Ed002's Note - That will be wind. It passes.}

22 Jul 2017 20:15:02
I'd be massively disappointed in him as a man if he did play up or force his way out as we made him.

22 Jul 2017 20:31:56
Lol ed2 xD
Maybe his smile was a "they got a good man here they’ll do fine without me" 😣
His massive smile didn’t follow him to when he scored himself though did it?
to be honest though of the group who ran over to him, only Salah and Moreno smiled, the rest looked so damn exhausted just getting to him xD.

22 Jul 2017 23:23:33
Come on, guys. Stop looking at the smallest things to justify your fears or negativity. They're just all knackered because of the training sessions and the climate. And we've all seen how on-field expression really doesn't reflect what's going on inside. Remember Sturridge's sullen, erratic expressions and non-celebrations during his peak year of 2013/ 2014? Well, he's still here. And remember Suarez's joyful, exuberant celebrations while he was covertly plotting to find any means possible to get out of town? Chill a bit and don't lose perspective.

22 Jul 2017 08:31:24
Hello Ed, with the way and manner the club treats it's youth, despite the massive talents therein, do you expect an exodus from our ranks (permanent transers transers transers transers sales) e. g Wilson, Gomes, sheyi,

For I hate to say it, but most 10m we buy are no better than these our u23 players, but they were trusted and given game time.

{Ed001's Note - yes but most of them were bought players themselves.}

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Jul 2017 14:20:36
I am not in the know or anything but I will be really gutted if we lose Coutiniho as it really feels that we are building a team to compete even if we get Keita and VVD to lose Coutiniho would still feel like we are starting the season with a negative mind set . I really hope the owners make a stand even if it's just for this season .

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2017 16:56:29
I'd say he may wait till after the champs league qualifiers,

If we qualify he should stay and see it through with us.

If we bomb, then, if he's not happy tell him, if Barcelona want him enough to stump up the Spondooligs.

Its up to Coutinio.

We can hardly go acting the injured party and complain about approaches to our player.

Whats good for the goose is.

22 Jul 2017 19:27:30
No i agree but it's not the manner of how he is sold be it tapping up or whatever it's just that I would gutted if he were to go regardless of how that came about . I feel if we are to improve the squad and be able to compete we need to keep him if he goes it starts a whole new rebuilding situation all over again which has haunted us for a while.

22 Jul 2017 22:54:28
I agree Danfield but a player whose head has been turned albeit by Barcelona, if he feels that he has not been allowed leave, he isn't going to improve any squad by staying while unhappy.
Look at VVD. at Southamton?
Its disgraceful the carry on.

What happens if we sign VVD this year and Barcelona or Madrid come in for him next year?
Will he go on strike again?
