Edd002 ben smith has came out and said there will "be plenty £ available " for klopp in January. Whether that's true or not mate, I'm assuming it will be borrowed money and further debt if we are not selling to buy. Huge misconception for a lot of fans not on this site that hennry can keep cutting checks from thin air with no consequences.

Big Al

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea who "Ben Smith" is Al, but as I have repeatedly said that there will be money made available for players at the right price. You need to find out what he means by "plenty". If any significant amount is to be used it will obviously need to be borrowed and it will obviously make the FFP situation worse without selling.}


1.) 20 Dec 2015 18:12:27
Edd002 he's a bbc football journalist. Cheers for the reply on that.


2.) 21 Dec 2015 07:37:10
Over the years Ben Smith has relentlessly proven that he knows about as much about what goes on at LFC HQ as I do.


 

 

20 Dec 2015 10:19:47
Edd002, any truth on chelseas interest in benteke mate?

Big Al

{Ed002's Note - No Al, sorry.}


1.) 20 Dec 2015 11:38:36
Cheers.


2.) 21 Dec 2015 10:35:44
what a shame.


 

 

03 Aug 2015 13:16:03
Edd001 is the Kovacic bid still on the table?

Big Al

{Ed001's Note - I don't think it is any more mate.}


 

 

22 Apr 2015 10:40:22
Edd001, reports skrtl will sign extension unfortunately. Do you think even with change of management he will remain here?

Big Al

{Ed001's Note - sadly it seems so. No idea why, but yes it looks likely he will stay for now.}


1.) 22 Apr 2015 11:32:57
I find it baffling he has managed to stay and play while Agger was forced to leave. Agger was slower (than he already was) but he still read the game well and as far as ball playing centrebacks go there weren't many better in EPL.


2.) 22 Apr 2015 11:38:34
Give the guy a break. at least he shows courage and fight and gets stuck in. yes he makes errors but doesn't hide like some.


3.) 22 Apr 2015 11:59:12
Dezmondo it's his errors that costs us games.Yes he's a ok defender but we need quality in there right now.He is either one tackle away from a free kick or a penalty.There has to be better players out there.
Barry inLouth


4.) 22 Apr 2015 14:06:38
Barry his errors usually come as he is trying to come across to cover in the full back posistions or because we don't have a decent defensive mid he gets pulled out of podistion and is then chasing trying to stop an attack or break play up. He wins a lot in the air and in a settled back 3 or 4 he us the best we have imo mate. Not all will agree but then that's what us Liverpool fans do isn't it.


5.) 22 Apr 2015 15:41:17
He's our best defender why wouldn't he he's under rated in my opinion a bit rash granted but still a very good defender who can contribute to a few goals


6.) 22 Apr 2015 16:20:54
Mate isn't great we can come on here and air our views but at the end of the day we just love the club.
Barry inLouth


7.) 24 Apr 2015 21:42:13
Skrtel drops to deep and plays people onside, we should be pushing up and playing them offside. I don't know how many times I've seen everyone in a line except Skrtel who's 5 yards deeper, 2 players push past the line and Skrtel plays them all onside for a 2v1.

I do admire the guy, I think he's got great heart and determination, he's a real warrior, but his dropping deep when everyone else is holding a line costs us more often than not.


 

 

21 Apr 2015 09:44:43
Edd002 are juve showing interest in sterling? Reported in some papers.

Big Al

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach for Sterling from Juventus, and I think it very unlikely they would have any serious interest. Right now they are pretty set on what they want and expect to do this summer.}


1.) 21 Apr 2015 10:23:25
In short no. As Ed says they already have targets and a pretty strict budget set so unless one of their targets go elsewhere their plans will not change.

Just as an after thought I have not heard of any italian team being interested in Sterling. In general they are not really keen on English players out there as they often struggle to settle.

We still need 3 players IMO. A quality centre back that doesn't cost 30 plus million never mind 60, a quality left back and a top class midfielder. Those positions need seriously strengthened if we want to actually compete next season.

Big Al

1.) 12 Jul 2017 17:21:41
Who's this quality centre back that costs less than £30m? I completely agree on positions though, if a top class forward became available such as Mbappe or Auba I think they would be quality additions too but otherwise those three positions are a must or we'll face similar defensive problems next year.


2.) 12 Jul 2017 18:25:56
Sturridge and Firmino are quality.


3.) 12 Jul 2017 19:08:31
Top quality = Top price!

{Ed001's Note - not always. That is why clubs employ scouts, to try and find top quality for less.}


4.) 12 Jul 2017 19:13:26
We practically have signed a top class midfielder (providing he stays, fingers crossed) . The signing of Salah will mean that Coutinho will have to play in midfield. To me that is just as good as signing a top midfielder.


5.) 12 Jul 2017 20:05:32
Very difficult to find top quality on the cheap but Liverpool have done it before such as Coutinho, Hyypia, Suarez (cheap enough considering) . It certainly can be done. The only difference is Liverpool usually offset that good work by buying Benteke, Carroll etc etc.


6.) 12 Jul 2017 20:39:06
I agree with your positions but not your logic. Why does a quality CB have to cost under 30 million? Would a player of that caliber even be an upgrade on what we already have?


7.) 12 Jul 2017 22:39:36
Because I'm sick of these ludicrous prices mate this window. It's actually infuriating yet the fans justify just about any madness. Why not pay 80 million, hell why not even 100 million for van dijk or a centre back like him?


 

 

06 Jun 2017 17:41:49
I wish Flanagan had have been in klopps plans. Worked his ass off to improve and had a fantastic attitude. I truly thought we had a solid possibly top class right back for the next decade. I thought a lot of flannaghan. Same with Kelly before his injury.
I hope young Arnold continues to work hard, stays focused and takes the right back slot eventually. I want young players in the academy to be apart of our future because we've produced noone especially special since Gerrard.

Big Al

1.) 06 Jun 2017 17:48:11
We have produced plenty but none could emulate, Gerrard, Carra, Owen or Fowler. TAA has a future at Liverpool. I am certain.


 

 

05 Jun 2017 18:50:00
Van dijk is a thirty million pound defender. 60 million is close to what we sold suarez for in sterling!
. Why are few outraged over the price? He's costing that because of demand. Other wealthy clubs interested and a lack of top quality central defenders in world football. Southampton are robbing us but they're doing great business.
200k as well for a central defender? Clubs top earner? Deeply uncomfortable with it all.
I see many fans are delighted that we're forking out the cash on social media.
I'll be delighted the day ticket prices are vastly reduced.

Big Al

1.) 05 Jun 2017 18:59:57
60 million when Suarez went is today's 80-90 million. Van Dijk is a very good player as he will take us up a level. So often we have spent 10 million on several players who are mediocre and/ or are 'ones for the future. Would you rather we just went back to that method or would you rather we buy genuinely good players who will improve the team or players that will just make up the numbers?


2.) 05 Jun 2017 19:06:04
because klopp obvs agrees with it and we trust his judgement over yours, and why do you think you can value a player?

I don't get why you are outraged that the club is willing to back our manager, seems moronic, would you rather they cleared it with you first?


3.) 05 Jun 2017 19:27:22
The game has changed Big Al. Money has taken over. No point fighting it, will happen whether we like it or not.

The agents are loving life this summer.


4.) 05 Jun 2017 19:31:08
If next may we have won the title, then the ends will justify the means.


5.) 05 Jun 2017 20:12:58
Transfer fees are meaningless when judging players.

The club needs to show likes of Coutinho that we're serious about competing otherwise he will get itchy feet.

I think he will improve us so no complaints here. 😎.


 

 

04 Jun 2017 11:35:37
Van dijk is an excellent player but there's no way in hell he's worth sixty million and 200k a week on wages and I hope most Liverpool fans would agree. Once we start justifying such transfers we'll turn into a soulless football club.
It's truly shocking the way football is going. Its a game created by the fans and yet everyone but the fans are reaping the benefits of soo much money in the English game especially.

It's ironic that the English game inherits the most money yet can't produce half decent players on a consistent basis. Why are academies producing next to nothing with so much money to invest in them?
Far less money in the game would force teams to produce from within and also change the culture. Rewarding youngsters for achieving nothing.

Big Al

1.) 04 Jun 2017 11:47:08
No player is worth £4m when you think that's probably more than the average nurse, fireman or armed forces earn in their career. Football lost its soul decades ago, it sold it to SkySports.
Fees will continue to rise, they are meaningless now as football at the highest level has totally divorced itself from the real world.

I will agree that we can get better value for money than a defender who's been injured for 6 months for £60m.


2.) 04 Jun 2017 12:15:22
Do you benefit from apple having move cash reserves than america. Turning over billions. Microsoft. Movie stars, they can get 5/ 20 mil per film. even a cut of the profits like sir mckellan with LOTR (20% off a billion) . music stars, or baseball, basketball, amrrican football even cricket players make a fine living.

Football has never really been a poor mans game, most footballers where on more than the average guy from about the 80's and its been thousands for like 25 years, move on. Its a joke. This is the game.

And then you all kick off because we won't pay x amount for a player and in the same breathe want evrryrhing for cheap.

Everywhere is expensive, this is our day an age not the past.

My house i rent is worth 130k, in 1999 it was worth 25k, then 2000 125k. The owner made a killing like but should i go the newspapers because i don't benefit.

Sorry for having a go. But give it a rest. This page is litered with crap about ruining the beautiful game.

You will all be fine with it all if we win the league.


3.) 04 Jun 2017 12:49:01
Let's all stop paying for bloody sky then and stream. They're robbing us not the other way around.


4.) 04 Jun 2017 12:35:51
The money has ruined the game. But unfortunately that's the world it is now. Our owners bought our club because they knew eventually they will probably make a killing when they sell it. I can't wait for this breakaway league, I hope Liverpool don't join it and we can see what football is about really.

{Ed025's Note - if you dont join it max you will be in the second tier of football though mate..


5.) 04 Jun 2017 12:36:04
If you can't spend then you could remain like Everton. All talking no success!

{Ed025's Note - times are a changing SC, everton will be dining at the top table this coming season my friend and i can hear all you moaning minnies saying.."i wish we were like everton buying top players its no wonder they are known as the peoples club"..


6.) 04 Jun 2017 12:58:31
You are a legend Ed025, Best thing happened to this page after ME! 😄😄.

{Ed025's Note - i must admit ...you are my inspiration SC.. :)


7.) 04 Jun 2017 13:01:49
If you want to buy top players you have to spend top money All I am saying to the OP Ed025.

{Ed025's Note - i dont have a problem with that SC, a marquee signing is fine but to want 5 or 6 is unrealistic, there are have,s and have not,s in football and at the moment liverpool are a have not, you still have a very decent budget but certainly not a chelsea, man city or man united...still can do a lot of damage though if the budget is managed properly mate..


8.) 04 Jun 2017 13:15:22
Money is ruining aspects of the game but you could argue it has also had a positive impact in other ways. There is so much more football available now for people that WANT to watch games on tv. In terms of what players are worth. They're not just people they're viewed as assets to business and it's very much about profitability from the owners point of view and that will have an impact on how much they're willing to pay for a player.

{Ed025's Note - my problem is that players are losing touch with reality RDP and are losing touch with supporters who are still the bread and butter of the game, a lot of them see themselves like pop stars or A list actors with their £10m mansions and bimbo girlfriends, jealousy you might say...yes certainly, but also a fear that the game is losing its identity mate..


9.) 04 Jun 2017 13:38:12
Ed025 is great. Second Coming? Let's just say I hope the third coming is much better.

{Ed025's Note - at my age a first coming is difficult enough mate.. :)


10.) 04 Jun 2017 13:47:52
Ed25 i couldn't agree more, and the game has been going this way for a long time. I love LFC and the premiership is exciting but one thing i have noticed over the last 30 years is not only how money has ruined the game and like you said made players into pop stars, but also it is hard to find players with any character!

They all say the same, safe things in interviews. At least Gazza had a laugh! That is why when the world cup is on i always support the African teams, because they look like they are having fun and running at players, rather than worrying about making mistakes.

{Ed025's Note - your right gareth, a lot of them dont look as though they enjoy it!. half of them would not crack a smile if they seen a chair walk mate.. :)


11.) 04 Jun 2017 13:53:05
Absolute classic mate!


12.) 04 Jun 2017 14:02:23
Yeah spot on ed especially with the amount of money the younger players earn before they've even 'made it'. It's very difficult for the average supporter to comprehend the lifestyle and the fact that players can ask for more than 100k a week or whatever when most of us would love to be earning half that in a year! Thanks for the reply.

{Ed025's Note - no probs mate..


13.) 04 Jun 2017 14:53:19
Nothing to do with the term Marquee Ed025. We need atleast 5 positions to be upgraded and it's not us fans fault all of them are valued at £40's and £50's.
If you pass this window without signing those then all those would shoot up to £70 next summer.
No one is asking for marquee here. Salah will cost us close to £35 mill. The same player who went for less than £15 mill to Roma.


14.) 04 Jun 2017 15:09:21
Money doesn't ruin the game if your winning, just when others have movre than you and are succesful.

Your not mad that there's money in the game just we don't have as much as everyone else.

Honestly there wouldn't be a murmur if we had signed silva, mendy and vvd. Like nothing about the "beautiful game"

{Ed001's Note - that is just nonsense. Insultingly stupid nonsense.}


15.) 04 Jun 2017 15:38:37
You think any of these posters would be talkimg about money ruining the game if we had just signed.

Vvd for 60mil, bernardo for 60mil and mendy for 40mil?

Its only reamerged like it does every year because we lose out on targets because of a lack of it.

The eds are talking about other issues like the players attitudes. Well it doesn't really matter how much they have, just how they are educated with it, the standards clubs and importsnt people around them set.

Little examples are johnny depp captain loaded, going to childrens hospitals all over dressed as captain jack. John cena loaded, holds the record amount of wishes granted for the make a wish foundation.

Jermain defoe and little bradley.

Just because x player is rich doesn't make it about the money, its simple there a nob.

Ferdinand donating 500,000 thousand in toys to the children without christmas charity.

This money should enable greatness and enable people who want to be great be it.

Coutinho withoit breaking a sweat could go buy 50 kits and take them round to the familys of bereaved parents. Little things.

Rafas wife, best not miss her off, is part of a liverpool based charity that offers help to children who have lost there parents. Last august she helped take 20 children to disney paris.

Was the king richer than most during hillsborough? Attended every single funeral. To put it into context, that wasnt offered by ariana grande as recently as 2 weeks ago.

Dont let giving these guys money be the excuse for being heartless selfish toads.

{Ed025's Note - some great examples there supermane and it gives me a bit of hope because yes there are some players out there with big hearts, naismith at everton was fantastic and went well beyond the pail with his charity work and the same with sakho at liverpool even though i know hes not flavour of the month, you may think im being a bit biased here but "everton in the community do fantastic work for charities and things like the club donating £250,0000 to young bradly makes me very proud mate...there are good people out there but also players could do a lot more imo..


16.) 04 Jun 2017 16:47:48
Everton are the shining light of merseyside for charity work ed. Its not bias if its a fact.

The majority of clubs are a disgrace. They have this money and choose to do nothing with it. that's where the problem lies. Listen clubs and players do stuff but its not enough.

Another little one is the fact its regarded as a tradmark thay klopp makes the players applaud the fans and show there gratitude win or lose, Escially the away fans. How is that like down to klopp.

If you said to all the posters now you where doing a charity run and we all attended, do you just finish, get in your car and f off. I mean you might be a nod ed haha but the least you would do would be a thank you. A few high fives. Same as the kids hanging over the plagers tunnel, even for warm ups. noone ackowledges them, even klopp doesn't even give a nod

This is the hard part for me. Little bradley. Would anyone of cared or took notice if he wasnt ill. Why does it take a little baby boy to get sick to be noticed. These guys are heroes, the modern knights for us football fans. They put on there armour and go into battle and we are there every step of the way. Old, young, rich and poor.

People can call it dramatic, but that's the point, the footballers don't see it as what it is, and how much they mean to people and the wonderfuk position there in to trully help.

Listen noones asking for anything massive

Few ideas

Coutinho and barkley ring some schools and ask could thry attend at lunch and do a footy match.

Liverpool vacate 50 tickets permanetly for free and donate to all differebt groups, charitys, causes each week.

Turn up and do autopgraphs at the club shops in liverpool for free. Once a month.

Get in partnership with charities of childreb, support agencys. Offer apprentiships within the club. Start growing are own coaches, scouts, managers, directors.

Put more in place for academy players. they are not cannon fodder, put them into college and uni, as part of there contractual agreement. help protect them from career ending injuries or failing to make it. They don't care where they go afer they have been released.

Helo with the ones who willnever maake it. buy them a van and tools etc give them retainer with the club or offer them to the plaayers for work

Take 1 million a year and put it into our grassroots. They have to commit to the fa but go build them around liverpool in needy areas.

The importance of sport and in our country football is how much it unites us. It brings equality to all. When your in the kop do you give anf who is either wisd, above, below. esecially with all this brexit stuff. none of that atters on football day

Sorry for the rant.

{Ed025's Note - its not a rant at all supermane its benevolence, just on the young players thing our youngsters go to hospitals, old folks homes and schools as part of their curriculum where they help out on a regular basis, it gives them grounding as well as showing them how lucky they are, i would like to see all clubs do this and then hopefully the future players might have a bit more respect and become better human beings mate..


17.) 04 Jun 2017 17:09:14
Nail smasshed on the head ed. Said it for years

Listen im a support worker and have 3 young sons. I have already okayed it for my lads to come with me when there older on shifts and experience what hapoens in the world, what goes on. Get in touch with what they are. It is our duty to help our fellow man if there down. We are the lucky ones. Anyone of us in the flick of a switch could be in a different position.

11-16 olds in school shouls have to partake in a saturday day volunteer job as part of there curriculum. Within charites, homes, hospitals. It will make them more aware human beings and then when thr timed comes where there in any sort of position to helo, they now how important that can be. Even buying someone whose homeless a bottle of water. Visiting lonely elderly peoole and having a brew. Noones asking for your whole life to be dedicated to this but.

Be the change you want in the world.

{Ed025's Note - i think your a very decent human being mate..


18.) 04 Jun 2017 18:19:24
Some great ideas Supermane. First post of yours I've 100% agreed with!


 

 

03 Jun 2017 20:34:44
Why do fans think salah would be a good signing? 40 million to compete with Mane? He's a right winger. I'm reading comments online of people drooling over his potential signing saying him and mane will light up the wings. Salah will be playing out of position then if he's playing on the left which is absurd . He's nowhere near as effective playing on the left because he loves to cut in and shoot with his left foot.

Also he's been playing well in a slow below average Italian league. He struggled In England before to settle in I believe?

It's a strange potential signing. We have positions that need serious improvement. I didn't believe we needed any attackers in with reguards to who was available.
A left winger if possible but brandt doesn't look like happening so signing Salah makes little sense to me.

Our wing play will improve to no ends regardless of manes absence if we address right and left back. Defenders who can defend and get forward and exploit the space. Milner needs seriously competition and Clyne needs replaced with the replacement fighting with young Arnold for game time.

Big Al

1.) 03 Jun 2017 20:41:09
Hmm but you were against Wijnaldum and Mane signing last summer too Big Al so.? 😉.


2.) 03 Jun 2017 20:49:25
Mané can play on the left, so if salah were to move I reckon klopp wants to play salah on right. Winger needed because we were ineffective against low block teams, so we need pace to penetrate. We will probably drop coutinho in midfield because he is an excellent distributer. Just my opinion but think a great signing.


3.) 03 Jun 2017 20:58:41
Personally I'm fed up of right wingers and I'm hoping the rest of the country is too. Make June the end of May! Oh what you mean a footballer? Fairly sure salah could swap sides and be atleast as effective. Plus the thought might be the play mane as a striker to get him more central? No idea personally but klopp knows better than me and big al. Strong and stable my arse.


4.) 03 Jun 2017 21:04:36
Salah will be a great addition to the squad. Plenty of games next season so he is a good but expensive buy. If mane is unavailable it does make sense.
I assumed sturridge was staying. That's looking unlikely atm.
I was NEVER against mane signing. I said he had an attitude that worried me and thought he was expensive. His price looks like nothing now with today's market.
I'm still unconvinced with wijnaldim. Though he hasn't been anything special he had a solid season as a whole.


5.) 03 Jun 2017 21:19:48
Lallana played left forward when we signed him. Milner played right wing. Wijnaldum played left midfield. Mane played left wing. Firmino played attacking midfield. Sturridge (barely) played right forward. Henderson played right midfield. Can played left back. Origi played left forward. Coutinho played attacking midfield.

So please explain why you believe a players position at their previous club has any bearing on how we will use them?

Maybe Salah will be used on the left, just like how Mane was switched by Klopp to the right. Or maybe Mane will go back to his overall career preferred position on the left to make room for Salah on the right? Who knows.

Their really is no point in worrying over how we will line up. Klopp picks the players to fit how he wants to play. If you think we will break our transfer record and with the intention of putting Salah on the bench, then you are beyond saving!


6.) 03 Jun 2017 21:22:49
Full of cheer big al.


7.) 03 Jun 2017 21:26:55
thinking about how we played last season, i think its going to be a fluid front 3, or front 2 really Al.

atleast that's how i see it, i would think either mane or salah would be able to play on either side.


8.) 03 Jun 2017 21:37:45
I agree with Tadders on this one.

Mane has had success playing on the left side at times in seasons gone by, in the same way you're saying Salah is effective cutting in from the right. Who knows what Klopp's thinking.

Yes he was here with Chelsea a couple of seasons back, but just bear in mind his age. he's still only 24 now, its not that unbelievable that a player that didn't settle well and, at only 21/ 22 at the time, didn't set the league alight. I think you're being overly critical if those are your expectations. You're making the Italian league out to be far poorer than it is. Plenty of decent defences in the Serie A.

Al, you were definitely super negative with Wijnaldum at the time, as were a lot of us, not sure about Mane but if puzzled's right that wouldn't be an odd thing either, plenty of us were unsure of that too. You have to argue in this regard that we've got to give Klopp the benefit of the doubt i reckon. I know he made a couple of stinkers, mainly with Caulker and potentially Klavan. but the majority of the bigger signings he's got them right and its not like he's had bad success previously in the transfer market. He's made some remarkably astute buys and he's shown he's clearly a good coach in terms of development.

In terms of the fullbacks let's just wait until we've got some rock solid proof/ bids in place before panicking. Still early days yet surely.


9.) 03 Jun 2017 21:39:40
I think mendy, keita and van dijk are top drawer players squizza who we've shown interest in. Van dijk looking the only one likely from them. Mendy is a massive disappointment. He should have been ours.
Salahs a good player.
Robertsons a poor player, ox is a waste of any amount of money.


10.) 03 Jun 2017 21:40:50
Do you watch us play l? Left wing right wing centre forward whatever they're just starting positions the players rotates all over the place.


11.) 03 Jun 2017 21:46:15
No problem with big al expressing his concern, its what these pages are for. But i disagree, he can he a very good addition to the squad. I also agree with mk, i can see mane playing on the left with is having two inverted wingers. Just have to wait and see what klopp plans for him really, if he signs.

Salah on the right and mane on the left. Different games, different opposition, different options ay lad.


13.) 03 Jun 2017 22:11:38
Anyone notice how poor we were without any pace when Mane was out through injury or AFCON? Because it stuck out a mile.


14.) 03 Jun 2017 22:35:11
We need to sign Kieta!


15.) 03 Jun 2017 22:51:11
I feel having the 2 mane and salah a left and right footed they can switch it up all the time and be a nightmare to defend against wether they cut in to shoot sting foot or take it outside and cross whilst on other side it's exiting prospect to our already top scoring front line.

Everyone does realise Salah is Left footed don't they?

Ox? Unless he's transformed into a top class right back I don't want him nor see the need for him. That's a signing that makes absolute no sense.
Van dikj will be a great signing.

Any word on keita macca?

Any word on clynes future macca and the right back position.? Lacking serious quaility in both wing back positions. Robertson will just add to the problems.

Because I'm sick of these ludicrous prices mate this window. It's actually infuriating yet the fans justify just about any madness. Why not pay 80 million, hell why not even 100 million for van dijk or a centre back like him?

Why do we need any new defensive enforcement or even any more players right? We only scraped fourth and won nothing and play more matches next season.

😂 😂 here comes the "he's potentially world class, he's young, he's this, he's that"
Sorry I've watched ox for years now and he's not good enough and will never be close to top class in any position because he simply doe not have the ability.
Keita clearly is highly unlikely but I'd rather wijnaldim continuing to progress in midfield than wasting 20 plus million on a player who will do nothing but add onto the wage bill.
I still think wijnaldim does not do enough on the pitch but the difference is he has a lot of ability. He's technically excellent. He also works hard and has improved.
Unfortunately being English, being relatively young and because klopp rates him magically confuses fans.
Let's not carry political correctness into football.
Form your own opinions. Klopps not a magician and has certainly bought poorly before.

He's average and not needed IMO . What position is he playing and regressing? Why is it that every and ANY player we're linked to or klopp likes they're deemed good enough just because?
Ox and Robertson are both potential signings and both would be really poor purchases. It's always telling when you hope we miss out on certain players.
If we only signed two players this window. Salah looks like one and a quality left back I'd be happy. Even though I think we definitely need a top drawer midfielder aswell. Can't see us signing that calibre of midfielder. Less is more especially if we're signing real improvements on what we currently have.

Because we're massively over paying and the player wants to come.
Van dijk is a great improvement on lovren. 60 million and 200k wages if true is disgraceful for a central defender. However football has gone in a direction that Is madness.
