Transfers summer 2016

Recommended Posts

Goodness. He's meant to be the awesome too.

 

So Sane and Gabigol for about the same price as Wijnaldum and Mane... Hmmmm... Hope Klopp and the committee really know what they're doing.

 

Meant to be awesome? Lulz.

 

That post makes no sense whatsoever. Potential vs impact signings much?

City knew what they were doing when they paid 50m for Sterling didn't they.

No I meant the Sane vs Mane part.

 

That Sterling comment was added because your post implied City know what they are doing by definition.

Like any signing - there are no guarantees. Best part of 40m is a lot to pay for someone who's never set foot in the PL though.

 

City have bought plenty of duds recently (or haven't managed to used them well). I expect they'll continue in the same manner. 1 dud, 1 average and 1 decent in every 3 buys.

Well Draxler isn't moving this window.

 

"VfL Wolfsburg wish to make it absolutely clear that at no time did those responsible at the club make either written nor oral commitments on the transfer of Julian Draxler within the current transfer period, which is due to end on August 31st, 2016. This is reiterated by a contractual release clause agreed upon with Julian Draxler and his management, which does not come into effect until summer 2017.

VfL Wolfsburg will not be selling Julian Draxler during the course of the current transfer period."

Not to mention he doesn't even know who Gabriel Jesus is given he thought it was Gabigol.

If only a world renowned manager with a history of success who sees the players day in day out has specific ideas on how he wants to play and what he needs to make that happen had the benefit of the expertise of someone who has no more information on the club than having watched games from the stands/armchair.

 

I desperately hope you are right, Cardie.

He was certainly overpriced, but he could turn out to be a good signing still.

 

I never claimed they were excellent at transfers. I'm judging these transfers independently, and I got it wrong anyways.. Got the wrong Brazilian Gabriel. Didn't know there was another one.

I mean, just for a start:

 

Sissoko > Cole > Poulson.

 

Also, you're using a player we haven't signed as a stick to beat the 'club/manager'.

 

You're weird.

The point is then there was actually a strategy and fans could understand what was happening, Cole was signed to help unlock defences and Poulsen was a replacement for the dm leaving.Back then you could see a scenario where we could achieve our aims, right now we are not addressing weak areas which have cost us for years and will continue to do so.

 

We also were beating top teams to players and they did look potentially world class to some (before anyone takes the piss that's a fact and I could bring up quotes about Cole), now the players we are signing makes it look like 5th will be a good season.

You dropped a couple of fifties there, mate.

which potentially world class players were we beating top teams to?

 

you need to get over your fixation with Brendan, he was a very poor manager that got lucky having the best player in the world that one season coupled with others playing above their ability, sterling being the case in point.

 

the you start harping back to rafa, i love the man for what he did, he made us relevant again, but i would not go back there, the football was mostly shite, pragmatic safety first approach.

 

Lets just see how things pan out this season before we cast dispersion's on the players bought and football played.

wtf have we all done to deserve you? even though Rafa was on his way out least he knew Cole was gone and not as good as Messi...

I'd play custard creams out wide, with Chocolate Hobnobs in a holding position in the centre of the park. I'd leave Malted milk in the hole just behind the Jammy Dodgers up front.

 

I'd go with the Party Ring up front. Like Sturridge, there's a chance it could be broken before you open the packet, but it brings something different to the table. 

 

The Jammy Dodger is Danny Ings, all heart but doesn't sit well alongside proper top class biscuits.

 

Pink Wafer (Markovic) will go on loan though.

Thanks to Bert for proving what I've said all along, I do not bring up Rodgers but people assume I am talking about him and make points which sometimes I reply to.

 

As for Kosma, anyone trying to say I'm a bad fan who was on here during Rodgers last full season is taking the piss and is a hypocrite.There was only a few on here who were good fans and I was one of them, I've never asked for Klopp to be sacked and have said even if he fails this season I wouldn't want him sacked.

 

This summer window has been far from inspiring and I honestly can't remember a window where my expectations have been so low, Rodgers first summer window wasn't great either but atleast you could see he was trying to address weaknesses.

 

That's my point and not a prediction about the season, no Europe and if Sturridge stays fit who knows.

If Markovic does go out on loan then it should be to a bunch of shitcunts like Wigan, Rochdale or Oldham, where it'll be freezing and fucking pissing down all season long.

 

No cushy numbers, piss the ponce off and get him (and his shitbag agent) to shake a fucking leg and manufacture a permanent move somewhere.

No offence JP, I like you and all, but you've got the memory of an ageing prize fighter who's taken one too many shots to the head.

 

You said if Rodgers was sacked, you'd stop supporting the club.

 

You also said you hoped we'd be shit and it was what we'd deserve.

 

Hardly badge-kissing full kit superfan credentials, though I'm sure you have no recollection of saying anything of the sort.

    • Seeing Odegaard’s asked to leave Madrid tonight. 
        Wouldn’t mind us taking a punt on him. 
    • I don't even think the drop-off in midfield has been that big, the midfield was pedestrian as fuck last year as well. Could see in the first half against the mancs we were trying to go a little bit more direct with balls in behind them, but the quality of wasn't quite there.   The real problems are Mane looks like he's dropped a yard of pace, Salah's touch has deserted him and Bobby has taken over Wijnaldum's old invisible man tribute act, plus Jota is injured. Given Trent is playing like we've put the mascot on the pitch at the moment, we're always going to struggle.   Said it in the transfer window thread, but I think time's up for at least one possibly two of the front three this summer, presuming of course anyone is actually interested.    
    • Klopp has been incredibly loyal to his starting players throughout his entire time here. Even when he first joined and most of them were fucking shite.
    • Comes back to Gomez and Virg being crocked imo. If we had Fab and Hendo in midfield it would improve things but nevertheless our forwards are a shadow of last season even with poorer service from midfield.  The whole team to some degree is compensating for our CBs being out.  
    • Jesus, shifting blame?   It was something that annoyed me during the game, as a midfielder you would think Hendo would be able to perform this exact part of a CB’s game a bit better, Matip would do it and Van Dijk would do it. Gomez not so much, he lack the skill to do it. 
        Go back to Liverpool-Chelsea game in 13/14, everyone blame Gertard for slipping, I did not. I pointed at Sakho, simply because he should have brought the ball with him 3-4 m forward into open space and by that bypassed  Chelsea’s first line.   Again, at the time I said Agger would do that, now I say that both Van Dijk and Matip would do that instead of playing it back to Alisson as much as Hendo did. By doing that we outnumber the opposition, by doing what Hendo did, we give them time to organize and get everyone behind the ball.   Like I said, Hendo did his job defensively, but there are a lot more to football than what you actually watch happening in front of you.   Maybe I put too much expectations on him because he’s a midfielder, but this is certainly the standard we need.
