Is there any truth in the VIDA rumours. Personally it makes sense if vvd. isn't available we all know matip. klaven hasn't worked so why not buy his teammate. You can't risk a gomez. lovren partbership.

{Ed002's Note - Domagoj Vida (CB) – Offers from Everton and Leicester and a verbal offer from another side (I would think Liverpool or Savilla) have been made - West Ham has made an offer via his agent but Besiktas have not had a formal offer from them when I asked

Odd one for me. Would be happy with Gomez getting a fair shot at playing in cup games etc this year. Hopefully he stays and matip and klavan leave.

So we may well of bid for Vida. I was thinking it was made up and we were not looking at another CB.

{Ed002's Note - It is unclear and I can see zero point in buying him.}

I also see no point Ed2, not when we have Gomez. Buying another CB would basically be telling Gomez he's done at Liverpool in my opinion.

am I missing something with Matip, I thought he was good when he joined. he didn't have much help from Lovren and co initially and copped most of the flak!

It's not a problem position for us, we have VVD, Lovren, Matip, Klavan, Gomez as well as Masterson who is well thought of if I recall correctly.

I'd personally see Matip moved on, Klavan kept as a back as I think he's a good lad, professional and to his credit, a good Cb when he's called upon. Even if this happened though there still wouldn't be room for Vida.

Personally i only see Vida as an option if one of Klavan or Matip leaves, IMO no point in buying him to add to the ranks should only be a replacement.

Get rid of klavan. should never of joined liverpool anyway.

He's the other half of the world cup final cb pairing. You have been telling me how world class Lovren is, well this lad was just as good. Far better than klavan and Matip.

Works well with Lovren. Keeps Lovren in his proper position and means that were not down to dodgy cbs if god forbid something happened to the man mountain.

Klavan and Matip are not title winning cbs and that has to be what we want.

What's the po8nt in getting Alison, having the best attacking 3 in the country and investing in big big players like fab, fekir, keita to not streghen the cbs.

I bet klopps already tapping up Maguire for 19/ 20.

Vida- the clumsier version of Lovren. Don't see a player there, think Dejan carried him at times. Hope we stay away.

Vida the uglier brother of Voronin.

Is Vida just wc hype? Never heard of him until it, and we haven't been linked with a player who is wanted by smaller clubs for a while lol.

Going back to his Dortmund days, GK and CB are 2 positions that Klopp doesn't like to play kids at, he prefers someone seasoned and experienced. Ward was never going to get much of a chance, think Gomez will split time another year or two at RB before truly getting a shot at CB.

Vida wouldn't be wear I would start when building a new defence.

Like a vvd is.

But to improve our back up and to give us someone who can actually work with Lovren I just can't see a downside. He's probably not going to feature a while bunch but who knows maybe if. anything happening to vvd, him and Lovren could lead up like they did croatia.

You forget how hard it is getting the right partner for Lovren. needs a certain type.

If there's someone going who made a world cup final with him then surely it's a no brainer.

Vida is is decent defender and nothing more. Lovren made him look very good at the WC cos well, he can't pass out the back, lacks pace and is quite clumsy. Lovren was the one passing out the back and bringing the ball out towards midfield, something Vida never did (maybe he can't or was asked no to, I don't know) BUT he ain't nothing more than a flavor of the WC, something that will die down with time.

Kloppsboss maybe Lovren should be replaced then if he is the problem ;)

Lacks pace? He marked sterling out the game. Didn't get done by him. The only players faster than him in the prem play for us.

He's better than Matip and klavan. Works well with Lovren and wo7ld provide us with a really good cb option.

Strange how Lovren has had an amazing season and the credit isn't going to vvd? Like your all disrespecting Vida by saying it was all Lovren.

You don't make a world cup final with passengers, I'm sorry but it doesn't happen. over the games it takes to get there your weak links will get exposed.
