For a laugh can anyone think of players we were linked with so many times in the past but never signed? Christian Tello was linked for like 3 years but never came to anything, same as Bertrand and Ashley Williams.

Agree0 Disagree0

Arda Turan. I was fully expecting to be linked with Arda Turan again this window for the 6th summer in a row.

He's a boyhood Liverpool fan don't you know?

26 Jun 2017 17:02:32
The winner has to be Arda Turan. He's been linked with us since the days he was still in diapers.

26 Jun 2017 17:43:18
Ken Aguero.

26 Jun 2017 23:02:39
Simao
Raphael Van der Vaart
Joaquin
Matt Elliott
Damien Duff
Taribo West.

27 Jun 2017 13:00:32
Ron, were you ever on the official LFC message boards? I remember being on there for a couple of years around the Van Der Vaart and Damian Duff eras.

27 Jun 2017 18:46:24
No, not on the official Zed, sorry mate.

26 Jun 2017 12:47:35

Reading rumours we've set our price for Coutinho at €79m, can we expect Barcelona bid?

Agree1 Disagree2

26 Jun 2017 12:58:35

I'm sure liverpool value coutinho much higher than that.

26 Jun 2017 13:19:14

If we are being quoted the likes of 70 Million for Keita and 25 Million for OX we should be looking for at least 100 Million plus for Coutinho.

26 Jun 2017 13:31:14

Once you bid stupid money for player you suddenly get a reputation as a club who can't walk away from a deal. There is a finite amount of money to be spent and wasting 80m on a player that is not vital to the team is mad far better using some of that to buy VVD.

26 Jun 2017 13:48:32

I guess the ox is coutinhos replacement or tadic.

26 Jun 2017 14:03:02

We have no idea what represents good or bad value in this crazy market ATM. I wish people would stop slapping arbitrary figures on players.

26 Jun 2017 14:39:48

I doubt we have put a price on Coutinho as we have no intention of selling him. Just more twitter rubbish. If such a thing did happen I suppose Naby Keita would be a decent replacement but there must be more than 20 mill difference in their value and frankly I do not see this happening.

{Ed002's Note - Keita would not be a Coutinho replacement.}

26 Jun 2017 14:42:35

I would say Liverpool would be right to demand €100M for Couts in the current market. Of course we don't want to sell him, on his day he is unplayable and makes the hard things look simple. Liverpool should not be looking to sell our best players.

Mng Ed's



VVD, Kieta and Mendy would win is the league hands down and wouldn't need to spend a penny for the next 3 good years!

I am not getting into the finance but Klopp should have sorted the LB last unmet when he had the money.



Keita is arguably the bet CM in Europe. The lad is superb in passing and equally brilliant in defending and tackling. He set up Forsberg and Werner more than any other outfield player in the whole league while He is only second to Dembele for most dribbles in a season.

An old school CM with precise passing makes him the hottest property.



How much woul Kante worth today? I can say Keita is head and shoulders above Kante in all department.



Sign him up and that's your midfield sorted for the next 10 good years!



It's better to sign 4 world class player in one windoe than 10 brownies every 6 months!



Thanks.

{Ed025's Note - head and shoulders above kante? in a league which is a 2 horse race thats a very bold statement IYKM, dont get me wrong the guy is talented but kante is EPL proven whereas naby is a gamble mate..

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Jun 2017 09:59:00

Ed025

Kante was also a gamble an year ago except Chelsea decide to take the gamble and one signing just one signing won them the league!

It doesn't matter whether it's a 3 horse race or 10 teams battle the fact remains He is the best old school CM I have seen form a long long time. A proper playmaker who could defend.

If Liverpool sign Keita the I can assure we wouldn't need to spend a penny on midfield for the next 5 good years!

26 Jun 2017 10:49:54

Kante wasn't a gamble a year ago he was the best CM in the league the year before with Leicester too.

26 Jun 2017 11:06:42

So signing Keita would sort our midfield for 10 or 5 good years?

26 Jun 2017 12:23:53

Harry's new name?

26 Jun 2017 13:17:42

Just pointing out.3 players in a team have absolutely no chance of winning the League.



Even an average 11 would turn them overv.

26 Jun 2017 16:17:36
To be fair ed025 it's not hard to be head and shoulders above Kante as he's only a little lad ;)

{Ed025's Note - love it HC..

27 Jun 2017 09:14:53
Er sorry, 'just one signing won the league'?
What are you smoking?
Chelsea added Kante and David Luiz to a team including Cortois, Azpilecueta, Hazard, Costa etc all who would walk into our 1st 11, but apparently Kante won it singlehandedly?

26 Jun 2017 11:49:09
So what happens to Milly when we get a left back?

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 14:12:15
he takes his place on the bench!

26 Jun 2017 14:27:27
I'm sure he'll be thoroughly modern.

26 Jun 2017 11:30:22
German football expert Raphael Honigstein says that Keita has told Leipzig that he wants too leave if a club offer enough money for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 11:57:38
I want to be beaten with large sticks if someone offers me enough money. doesn't mean anyone will offer me enough money for it as it would likely not be worth it for them.

26 Jun 2017 13:29:51
Come on red the 20$ fee is well worth it to beat you with large sticks, don't sell yourself short!

I will be starting a gofundme under beat reddawn with large sticks.

26 Jun 2017 10:50:40
Sky Sports reporting we have expressed an interest in Mbappe. can't understand for a second why we would even think of paying a world record fee for a 18 year old kid with one season of first team experience. The kid is obviously talented and if he is smart he should stay where he is for the sake of his career.

Agree3 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 09:27:20
So in a few years we will be targeting Jan Bednarek for about 50-70mill. that's how it goes.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2017 08:28:23
Good morning, for me ideal signings and realistic Jonas Hector, Nicklas Sule, Ruben Neves and Timo Werner.

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Jun 2017 09:45:40
Sule is going to Bayern. Agreed about January i think.

25 Jun 2017 16:24:58

Everybody going on about how've we don't have a 20 goal a season striker.

can't anybody remember when Suarez first joined and everybody said he's not a goal scorer?

I honestly believe Firmino will get 20+ goals next season!

Agree5 Disagree0

25 Jun 2017 17:18:33

Not one single person said Suarez is not a goal scorer. That's just crap.

His stats pre Liverpool for goals is amazing. Ajax, 81 goals in 110 games.

It really winds me up when people straight up lie to try and back a point they want to make.

Rant over.

25 Jun 2017 17:21:12

A really interesting parallel to draw as they are players of a similar mold imo. I think he could definitely break 20 goals this year, he just needs to improve on his finishing as I'm sure he'll be presented with plenty of chances 😁.

{Ed025's Note - suarez and firmino similar??...yeah fornax, in the same way that aiden mcgeady and ronaldo are..

25 Jun 2017 18:14:28

I actually agree with this. Suarez was infuriating for a year and a half he seemed to need 10 chances to score a goal. When Studge arrived he really kicked on and became a lethal striker. Firmino definitely has the ability to do the same.

25 Jun 2017 18:25:26

I think Firmino is a cracking player, his work rate and running for the team is exemplary but he's no more a striker than I am a ballet dancer. He's far better as a strikers foil, kindly a Suarez style free role and I will eat my underwear if he scores 20+ goals.

25 Jun 2017 18:46:36

Lallanas banana, Suarez scored in his first game from the bench vs. Stoke and pretty much didn't stop creating magic until he left. The only thing infuriating was his tendency to get banned!

25 Jun 2017 18:06:12

Only by by teeth.

26 Jun 2017 00:34:49
suarez's finishing was not that great. he would always score the hard goals but struggle with chances you would expect a striker to score. as time went on he got better and better at finishing and really surprised me as he seems to easily adapt. firmino has been here long enough to recognise he's not going to improve like suarez but he can still improve somewhat.

26 Jun 2017 08:14:11
Went to a gig last night with a mate who I would normally be jamming with on a Sunday evening. He's a much better musician than I, but I was chuffed when he said how much my playing had improved over the last 2 years; all down to practice and mental attitude (belief that I could learn) . If at 50, I can improve, what's to stop Firminho, a 20 something, from improving on an aspect of performance which I suspect is largely mental? It's not like he can't strike the ball hard enough or with enough precision. OK it's true that at his level the room for improvement is nowhere near as much as the scope I have to improve as a musician, but an intelligent person should be continually improving on aspects of their profession which are not purely physical.

25 Jun 2017 17:53:39
Instead of spending 70M and 200k wages on VVD. LFC should get a defender for 30/ 40M and try their best to sign Diego Costa. Absolute beast in every sense. Will help the team immensely. its not about marquee signings but these kinda signings should be one every season for progression to the top. ManU did this for years when other teams couldn't spend until Abramovich came on the scene.

Agree0 Disagree8

25 Jun 2017 18:30:40
Apart from the fact he only wants to go to Atletico.
