Markovic to Brighton for just 8.5m.

Pinkfloydd

1.) 31 Aug 2017 13:56:49
Ed002 said we over paid for him and felt that he was £10-15m player at the time we signed him. Good move for him and gives him a chance kickstart his career.


2.) 31 Aug 2017 13:59:06
for just? suprised anyone wanna pay more then a pepsi for him.


3.) 31 Aug 2017 14:02:26
That's okay. You win some and you lose some. Better for us to move him on since he's not in our plans, and for him to get a chance at reviving his career.


4.) 31 Aug 2017 14:05:30
Whilst the fee isn't great if this is true I'd be happy as clearly he isn't good enough for us.


5.) 31 Aug 2017 14:07:01
Good deal all round. We should've cut the losses last season, same with Sakho. We'll be seeing similar value for him next transfer round.


6.) 31 Aug 2017 14:08:51
VVD on his way to LFC - Twitter, we are going crazy now!


7.) 31 Aug 2017 14:14:57
All things considered that isn't a bad deal for him or the club.


8.) 31 Aug 2017 14:17:19
Another one of BR's splurge signings out the door. Good luck, Marko. It just was not meant to be.


9.) 31 Aug 2017 14:27:59
Swings and roundabouts. How much was paid for Coutinho and how much for Surrey?


10.) 31 Aug 2017 16:24:12
Marko will always be remembered for that great goal he didn't score vs. Sunderland. Shame it didn't work out for him.


 

 

31 Aug 2017 09:38:44
Ooh! I just posted about Flana to Brighton.
Apparently the are interested in Markovic Too!

Pinkfloydd

 

 

31 Aug 2017 09:37:26
Hi all, my friend is an Arsenal supporter who insists they are looking at Clyne.
Also Flana is of interest to Brighton on loan according to a work colleague.
Probably balls but just sharing. Exciting day ahead for a change :)

My mate just text me to say Barcelona have offered Lucas Digne and Rafinha as a make weight in a deal for Coutinho to ease a last minute CB, LB and Midfield shortage.

Pinkfloydd

1.) 11 Aug 2017 17:29:51
Those two, plus £70m, then go buy Mahrez and wait til next year for Naby.


2.) 11 Aug 2017 17:36:01
We've got a left back and Rafinha is a terrible player. Why are people so obsessed with Mahrez? He's awful?


3.) 11 Aug 2017 17:40:28
Can't all be wrong. Mahrez is pretty good. better than you might think.


4.) 11 Aug 2017 17:44:49
Firstly we do not have a midfield shortage and secondly u named 2 players but 3 positions. is rafinha a utility player or can he play cb and midfield?


5.) 11 Aug 2017 17:47:47
Agree with Frankly. All those players offered by Barcelona are useless.
Only player I would take is Suarez.

Also no need to mahrez. aweful.


6.) 11 Aug 2017 17:51:45
I'd rather have the money.


7.) 11 Aug 2017 17:53:15
No to any Barcelona player which is surplus thank you very much.

Luckily LFC have zero interest in Barcelona players :-)


8.) 11 Aug 2017 17:55:03
why do barcalona think we want there castoffs. we hold all the cards and if Barcelona want coutinho so much either put up or shut up. and as for so called family members slamming l. pool over this transfer slam they should slam coutinho he's not long signed a 5yr contract.

{Ed025's Note - contracts of footballers are not worth the paper they are written on steve..


9.) 11 Aug 2017 18:03:06
Mahrez is awful? awful enough to win POTY. Give over, the Rafinha part aside (who is bang average) it's actually a really good suggestion.


10.) 11 Aug 2017 18:03:11
Oirish Kev, Mahrez had one good season for Leicester and was rotten last year, I think we've seen enough one season wonders. Besides which he's hardly a number 10, he lacks the composure and intelligence on the ball.


11.) 11 Aug 2017 18:04:33
We don't want their rubbish.


12.) 11 Aug 2017 18:14:39
If Coutinho does move on, which im expecting now, we should look to Barkley for now. Use some of the balance for VVD.


13.) 11 Aug 2017 18:25:21
Digne is more injury prone that Sturridge. Besides, Liverpool already have Robertson, Milner and seemingly Moreno is staying. No need for a full back this window.


14.) 11 Aug 2017 18:29:59
Keep him, transfer requests 24 hrs before season starts? Liverpool has taken enough stick for their transfer dealings this summer but at least they bid for the players at the start of the window, not 3 weeks from the end of the window after they failed to get their first choice. tell him he's staying till next summer, end of. And before someone says the club were aware he wanted to move months ago. why didn't they bid months ago? as much as Liepzigs stance has been frustrating this summer i think everyone would have to respect their decision and that's the same way it should be now regarding Liverpool. the club won't sell this summer.


15.) 11 Aug 2017 18:38:35
Barkley? Ed025 wants shot of him, which is indictment enough for me.

HX, Mahrez really isn't very good. he's only ever had one really good season in his career and suddenly he's a £50m footballer? Last season he was at best mediocre. Like I say, lack of composure on the ball and goes missing if he can't be bothered. Let someone else get mugged.


16.) 11 Aug 2017 18:42:59
Who wasnt 'rotten' for Leicester last year?

Not that I necessarily want him, but a Mahrez in a free flowing attacking team would be an asset.


17.) 11 Aug 2017 19:10:35
I don't see how having one really good season in a career is enough to spend £50m? Davey have you actually watched him beyond a highlights reel? Last season was more representative of his normal output.


18.) 11 Aug 2017 18:14:15
Keeps the price of a player intact though Ed25.

{Ed025's Note - it does to a certain extent i suppose nicky..


19.) 11 Aug 2017 18:47:07
I think Mahrez is magic on the ball, what he lacks is grit, determination and work ethic.

{Ed025's Note - dont forget loyalty and honesty jayden..


20.) 11 Aug 2017 18:56:51
I would agree to push for cash only deal, get the players we want rather than trying to make them fit.
Would they agree to move? No idea myself!
Mahrez is very hot and cold, with the money we could probably get a better player.
Always wanted Draxler, but probably no chance and not even a consideration - good player though.


21.) 11 Aug 2017 19:00:55
Some on here saying Mahrez is a one season wonder. Isn't keita as well? Fickle!


22.) 11 Aug 2017 19:28:42
Good point Rome.


23.) 11 Aug 2017 19:19:44
Mahrez isn't a 50 million pound player you're right, but neymar shouldn't have been a 200 million pound player either, Coutinho shouldn't have been a 100+ million pound player but this is the climate we're in, if siggy from swans is 50 million I'd jump at mahrez for 50! (not slating Everton's attempts to sign siggy I think he's very good too)


24.) 11 Aug 2017 19:30:06
If we sell Coutinho then whatever player we go for we will see his price rise dramatically and the club get held to ransom. We are literally in a no win situation.


25.) 11 Aug 2017 19:42:59
If you think Mahrez would be a good fit, than you really don't understand our system. His work rate is appalling, and in a high press system, all it takes is one player not doing their job for a defensive collapse. I would be shocked if he was a player that Klopp holds an interest in.


26.) 11 Aug 2017 20:00:01
I wouldn't really want any of those Leicester players, I can't say it was all of them, but to be honest the way they went about the business with CR was a joke.


27.) 11 Aug 2017 20:10:08
Actually Mahrez is a one season wonder, whereas Kante continued in the same vein and isn't a one season wonder (two consecutive league winners medals? ) . The two seasons before Leicester won the league Mahrez was very very ordinary, the season following, he was very very ordinary. Hence one season wonder. As he was really good for one season and really poor for three.


28.) 11 Aug 2017 20:53:48
Mahrez is a classy player. When he wants to turn it on he is as good as, if not better than most wingers in league. BUT. Haven't we just signed a winger? I don't think klopp would go near him as his work ethic is not there.

I agree with post that says, TR is too late in the day, season starts tomorrow. Before we start feeling sorry for pipco let's remember he is on £140.000 a week. He plays for an elite club an is in same tournament that Barcelona are in. He will get his chance at Barcelona I'm sure but everyone knows we don't have a strong enough squad to let him go atm. If we'd got kieta I think FSG would have said "ok barca" but as it stands we need him too much.

I think any thought that Phil would choose us over Spanish giants has now gone. We know how he feels about it all. I say, if we get kieta then fine, he can go, if not then he simply can't desert us, the team that's has ignited his career. Let him know this is the case. End of. He will play well for us as world cup, and if he had poor season would Barcelona still be interested? I know the eds say that Barcelona say "it's now or never" but that's rubbish. They are always in for the top south american players and Phil is still getting better.

Eds, I don't mean what you say is rubbish, it's what Barcelona say that I believe is rubbish. Your insight is great and sorry if I go on sometimes and contradict myself.


29.) 11 Aug 2017 21:00:10
We ............

{Ed002's Note - You have to stop trolling all of the posts with the same tedious comment.}


30.) 11 Aug 2017 21:02:21
Who actually cares that much? So we lose Couts and we get a bucket load of cash and we buy a replacement. That is football fellas, we sell or they retire. This isn't Stevie we are talking about, this is a player who has been good for us that we bought for inbetween 8 - 10 million. He has done his duty and if he leaves will fetch us a good profit. Klopp and Co must have already known about this as the rumours having been running for a year now - no smoke without fire. FSG haven't been able to/ don't want to splash out the dosh to create a dream team that is guaranteed to fight for the title so there is no real drama here imo. I for one think that we have a good team and we have the chance to challenge. Looking forward to the new season, good luck gents.


31.) 11 Aug 2017 21:28:44
I like what you say chuffes but the fact FSG haven't splashed out is the exact reason we can't afford to lose him. You're right that we have a great team with or without Phil but last term it was depth that cost us dearly and although we have 3"decent new players we've also sold a few and for me depth is still an issue, especially with European football.

Again, if we sign kieta, then let him go, he has served us well. If we get vvd too then depth certainly won't be an issue.


32.) 11 Aug 2017 21:22:00
Quick honest question:

Why are footballers not allowed to leave their job when under contract, but in a regular job you can? Can't he hand in his notice?

Sounds like a stupid question, but seriously why?

{Ed002's Note - Their registration is held by there employers and they are contract under terms which do not fall under employment law. This has been explained on many occasions.}

my fault. The GUI got me. I think you were referring to the post above mine.


35.) 11 Aug 2017 22:15:30
Mahrez is a cracking player when he wants to play. It seems to be just that though. Where was he when Leicester were getting smashed week in week out?


36.) 11 Aug 2017 20:53:48

37.) 11 Aug 2017 22:49:55
He's been replaced by salah.

He was going to play cm so in theory we don't need a like for like.


38.) 12 Aug 2017 00:56:38
As sorry as I am to say this, I think we've made a rod for our own back in the way we've pursued vid and keita this summer. We've unsettled our targets, and that has no doubt negatively affected other teams preperations for the season. I can't see how we can complain when Barcelona do it to us. I think we make it clear we want £120m+ and let couts go with our gratitude and best wishes. It's not like he's pushing for a move to arsenal. thoughts?


39.) 12 Aug 2017 03:13:58
Has anyone EVER gone from liverpool to arsenal?


40.) 12 Aug 2017 08:02:13
FranklyMrShankly - keita and Kante are 2 different players for 2 different teams in 2 different countries. Just in case you are unsure who Keita is. No mention of Kante being a 1 season wonder 🙈.


 

 

30 Jul 2017 21:06:34
My mate seems to think his team, West Ham have made a bid for Milner which is being considered.

Pinkfloydd

1.) 30 Jul 2017 23:36:59
We'd be mad to let him go this year. His experience could be vital in the UCL. Has been shown time and time again how important experienced shoulders can be to success. Talent alone is often not enough.

He showed last season how important he is to the club. Model pro, glad he plays for us.


2.) 31 Jul 2017 03:19:50
I agree. Eventually I'd like to see Milner go but this season is not the time.


3.) 31 Jul 2017 08:03:55
I on the other hand would let Milner go. Can't see him getting much games time this season apart from league cup and FA cup but I would rather the young players get a chance in that in them competitions. Don't see him anywhere near good enough to get near playing in central midfield for us. and at the wages he is on to be reserve full back just seems a waste of money. And for Milner at his age all ways wants to play let him go to a club where he will play most weeks where he wants I think he earned that for the way he played last season out of position and did not moan just got on with it. As footballers this day and age don't normally think of the team first. YNWA.


4.) 31 Jul 2017 14:11:37
Don't see why we'd let him go - Robertson untested at highest level and don't trust Moreno, plus could be very useful if we need cover elsewhere as I'm sure would be effective at RB or even RM if required. He's a seasoned pro and very versatile and we need depth.


5.) 31 Jul 2017 14:14:52
It's worth the high wages to have cover for 4/ 5 positions.


6.) 31 Jul 2017 16:32:56
Spot on, Grino. I love Milner as well but were he to go, I would not be bothered. I don't see him getting any time in midfield (he is simply not good enough there) or in defence (maybe at RB but we are well furnished there) so really, if WH really want him and he wants to leave, let him.


7.) 01 Aug 2017 13:06:58
Milner not good enough in midfield? Dunno about that. Last yr he had no option (apart from moreno) to play at left back but the yr before he was used in midfield quite a lot. Usually a holding player. As I've said, his versatility and experience could be invaluable. For a team who's only two downfalls are depth and defence it would be crazy to sell a player like Milner. Also a very good role model for the young squad.

{Ed025's Note - i like milner..

Well that was a huge build up for nothing :0)

I guess today though we may see Markovic and Couts go to Spain. I do think that keeping him now though would be the difference between a title challenging team and a top 4 team.

Pinkfloydd

1.) 01 Sep 2017 09:24:34
I can't even wish him to flop at Barcelona 😔😔. He is so kuch class and quality. We do need to recruit some Brazilians. They work their way up to the table by sheer hard work and quality.


2.) 01 Sep 2017 09:37:19
Maybe.


3.) 01 Sep 2017 10:44:26
Cou is going nowhere without a replacement. That would make no football sense.


 

 

26 Jul 2017 23:03:16
I think that if Coutinho has always had his heart set on joining Barcelona, he should be allowed to go. He is a fantastic player, but he is not as irreplaceable as Suarez was. So long as we get someone classy in his place we will be just fine. Isn't Keita a similar player? Makes you wonder if this scenario has been planned for a while.

Pinkfloydd

1.) 26 Jul 2017 23:29:43
Keita is in absolute no way similar. I mean seriously.

{Ed033's Note - You cannot be serious, man [chalk dust].


2.) 26 Jul 2017 23:58:43
This kind of thinking keeps us a step behind top level football. Who exactly could replace a top class, premier league experienced play-maker who doesn't have to settle into a new country and doesn't have any excuses not to hit the ground running going into this very important season as the main man? How is that replaceable?

Stop getting rid of out best players, if we did land Keita, by the time he's 25 and Barcelona come knocking, the cycle starts again and we never win anything. Please knock it off with the 'he isn't irreplaceable' nonsense, it seems only to gain some moral high ground, because it certainly isn't winning us leagues. 27 years and counting.


3.) 27 Jul 2017 00:05:24
I've always had my heart set on Eugenie Bouchard, doesn't mean if she suddenly shows up my wife is going to let me shack up with her.


4.) 27 Jul 2017 00:23:48
This is what I don't understand. Why do people keep comparing Keita with Coutinho when they clearly don't play the same position by a clear mile. Is anyone comparing Kante with Coutinho, because Keita and Kante play the same defensive midfielder position, while Coutinho is clearly an offensive midfielder/ left wing. Keita might be a tad more offensive than Kante, but that's about it.


5.) 27 Jul 2017 00:32:09
Finally someone who I wholeheartedly agree with, couldn't of said it better myself.


6.) 27 Jul 2017 01:05:06
ra1969, neither Kante nor Keita are defensive midfielders by any stretch.


7.) 27 Jul 2017 01:14:25
Coutinho has already been replaced with Salah.


8.) 27 Jul 2017 02:00:17
Do the eds know if there's any truth behind the Eugenie Bouchard transfer rumour?


9.) 27 Jul 2017 06:15:55
We wouldn't need to tap up players if that were true.

12.) 27 Jul 2017 11:46:45
Voronins, I sure hope so!


 

 

21 Jul 2017 08:16:37
I would hate to see Coutinho leave, although I do not think he is quite as good as people say. The potential is of course there but he needs to expand beyond cutting in an shooting.
Quick question though- even if he went for £200m, who would we replace him with? Keita isn't happening, so even with fantasy money its difficult.

Pinkfloydd

{Ed025's Note - £200m PF????...your having a giraffe mate..


1.) 21 Jul 2017 08:43:20
I wouldn't sell him at any price. I can't think of a player of similar quality who would be attainable.


2.) 21 Jul 2017 08:43:25
Couts or Barcelona ain't happening.


3.) 21 Jul 2017 13:30:18
You say that you don't think he's that good. Then you go on to say that he is almost irreplaceable.


 

 

08 Jul 2017 20:37:17
A friend of mine knows Jason Mcateer, who suggested that Liverpool tried to buy back Suso at some point in the past season, but he did not want to return after feeling let down by the club. Klopp still likes him.

There is interest in Anderlecht's Youri Tielemens according to some local gossip I heard out last night. Does anyone know much about him? Apparently a 19yo that is already class.

Saying that Barcelona wouldn't come in for Coutinho next summer is simply ridiculous. If they still want him they will return - I can't understand why anyone could suggest otherwise!
I wouldn't be suprised if his departure next year is already in full discussion between the clubs.

If they really did say this then it's just bs to get Liverpool to sell. I'm suprised that you are being so naive.

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.

I suspect maybe Can wants to move on himself, which is the problem. He is very much wanted though, especially after Lucas going.
