News reports this morning are basically saying Neymar turned up to training, told the squad he is off and left. One of his agents, (one of how? many does he need? ), is supposedly in Paris. Now I appreciate Barcelona want Coutinho as his replacement but considering Neymar seems to have been the one in Coutinho's ear for so long does this make it less likely he would go there? The Neymar transfer seems to be a bit of a mess so could that closeness backfire on Barcelona and he tell PC to avoid? Is there a feel for whether the desire to play there or the connection to his Brazilian team mate is the stronger driver? Or am I just clutching at straws? (As an aside I've never really got the assumption that Portuguese soeaking/ influenced Brazilians automatically want to play for a Spanish club) .

Have to admit i did think this aswell!

By that argument he could be of interest to PSG also.

Friends are important but Barcelona are still a huge club so it wouldn't change much. Also Couts was never seen as Neymar's replacement (frankly that would be a downgrade), he was being looked at for their midfield. I can see Barcelona switching their focus to Mbappe now which may impact their pursuit of Couts.

I still can't believe Paris are willing to pay so much for Neymar. He is an excellent player, but also comes across like Justn Bieber with his attitude. He is not worth it.
And yes, I think if he leaves Barcelona then Couts will not be as committed to jumping ship, which is looking good since Neymar has pissed off most of his team mates.

Barca will move for Sanchez the man Neymar replaced. Simple option better player than neymar. Just needs a i have never forgotten you phone call from messi.


6.) 02 Aug 2017 12:26:44
You are aware of why Sanchez left Barca. he won't be going back there.

Jbleftpeg not entirely sure what anyone could disagree with there. Arsenal had 20 years of ECL so better bet still than us.

Personally I think when one of Mane and Salah isn't there it is a must to play an out and out forward who will score goals. This is the same problem as last season, remove one of the 10 or so a season goalscorers and we have a blunt attack. Firminho is never going to score 20, a good season for him would be 15 and that is because he isn't an Aguerro, Kane, Shearer type of forward. He is not a goalscorer in that way. Neither are Mane and Salah. Coutinho will score less than them each season.

For me the problem is at both ends. Games that are open we concede too many. Games that are close we can't score enough. People will now throw out the total goals stat to which my answer is lies, damned lies and statistics. What those stats don't show is the number of games where the goals have been 1 or 0, despite plenty of possession and opportunities. And those games are where we drop 2 or 3 points and end up struggling to make ECL. It is fine to improve the defence, which will change the 3-3 Watford type games. But it won't change the 0-0 or 1-1 or 0-1 games we dominate and drop points from. And from what I can see the attacking players we field are not natural finishers, their conversion rate is low and the back ups and midfield aren't as good as them.

Who was this great defender we sold, one of the youth team the rest of us didn't see? Cos the only senior CB we sold played in many of the rubbish defensive performances during the time he was playing for us. The CB thing has been done to death. Just like the lack of FBs who can defend there isn't this supply of quality players sitting around for sale. As several people have said City were chasing Evans. In fact two Man U rejects were deemed to be top of the options. We didn't look at one option that has been mentioned and screwed up VVD. We then didn't go out and sign a same ***te different player alternative just to spend money. There is a massive difference between knowing we need to change and there actually being someone better we can do a deal to get in. This thong others have posted of anyone would be better, I can name 30, 50 or whatever who are miles better stuff is just people whinging and believing their own exaggerations. We all know that better defenders are needed but the ones we have contributed to a top 4 side. We need better than that but no one is selling better than that so it isn't as simple as just throwing names out there or saying anyone would be better. Yes we'd love a Carragher or Hypia, but so would other top sides cos they're struggling to find that quality as well.

It is what it is and for me the biggest thing to kick them over is if you had one target, why did you screw it up. Especially since the thing they grasp more than most fans is that there weren't lots of alternatives they could have moved onto.

I still don't get why people think we don't have the money. Look at what was being considered to be spent, the ability to say no to 100m for Coutinho. I don't think the club is short of money. I think, or hope, the previous lessons of spending big on mediocre players have been learnt. Spend big when the player justifies not for the sake of it.

Bigger problem for LFC is that the EPL is the hardest league to get champions league every year, the likes of Chelsea and Man U have missed out in recent times. The 2 Spanish clubs aren't going to any time soon. Ultimately if a player wants the guaranteed by default route rather than being part of the reason for getting UCL then do you want to spend large sums of money to keep them.

The only good thing about that exit is it might mean less chopping and changing of the team, the other side to that though is that some players, like Ward might get little if any game time. In his case the positives he brings can easily be erased by that lack of matches.

Before people get carried away about the attack, that same attack has had a worrying number of couldn't hit a cow's backside with a banjo moments this season and the same happened last. Needs the team as a whole to be far more consistent to not have to rely on others slipping up.

Quality support for the players so far this season, when does the collection start for the banner saying "you're all useless, overpaid tossers who should f*** off"?

If I remember correctly Rossiter (now gone) and Chirivella were the more defensive mids coming through. Is Chirivella rated to make it or is anyone else coming through?

To be honest Lucas was never quick in the first place, hence he'd get caught quite often for pace but as a midfielder he knew how to cover a defence.
