Never a truer sentence than from the Independent transfer news live thread...

 

 

Liverpool's pursuit of Naby Keita is beginning to annoy Leipzig with lots of talk but little action.

The 'big clubs' pay big fees & wages and tend to get the players they are after.

As a club we briefed we'd spend big.

We're back on the champions league, have a world class manager that's idenfied certain players he wants.

Put some money down and offers in for these players show some ambition.

It's already coming out on reports we're pissing off Leipzig.

 

In other news, conte and chelsea thought re signing lukaku was nailed on. Somehow he's going to united.

 

Conte also wanted to sign van dijk, bonucchi and bakayoko. How are those deals panning out because Im hearing they're having the same trouble as us getting the deals over the line.

 

Arsenal want to sign lemar, theyve hadto up their bid to £40m but monaco are refusing to sell. They also want mahrez, leicester want £50m for him, arsenal dont want to pay more than £0m - £35m.

 

maureen was moaning the other day about not getting the deals for players he wants done.

 

Its not just us who cant get deals done. No fucker wants to sell unless they get their asking price which is often silly money.

people comparing us to other clubs trying to vindicate their point is beyond fucking hilarious. sort of stuff trump supporters pedal.

 

we have been far and above one of the worst clubs in terms of transfers. to be fair probably long before fsg. but its hardly got better. probably worse to some degree.

He'll head to United. Maureen will be more persuasive (albeit a crock of shite) and Lukaku wont fancy the billing of living up to Costa.

 

Hopefully Chelsea can bump up the price.

 

Him signing for either for that kind of money doesn't actually worry me.

 

As long as we get 2 more starters in.

 

Remains to be seen if we are capable of it, but let them scrap over Lukaku- let is drag on as long as possible

Can just see Everton bidding £30m for Sturridge after they sell Lukaku.

 

I think Sturridge wouldn't mind staying in the area and becoming a nailed on starter, and will be motivated to prove Klopp wrong and boost his World Cup chances.

Other clubs have bids rejected then either increase their bids or move onto other targets.

 

It's really not fucking hard, football is run by spastics, for spastics.

For context, let's not forget the small factor that Klopp has broken even - or better - while Conte and Mourinho have already spent a fortune in a similar timeframe.

 

He's owed a bit of commitment and decisiveness in this window.

Klopp ? He would happily have spent 170 million on his targets by now then told the club who he wanted to sell. Klopp is our best player and deserves no blame for anything. I wouldn't be.surprised if he is more hysterical than the FF right now. I hope he is.

In profit.

 

 

Short of the year we sold Suarez we've barely broke even, sorry, correction, i think we may have hit the heady heights of 1 million profit one year.

 

Edit - 2013-2014 accounts was the first time we'd made a profit in seven years with a mind blowing 900k, 2014/2015 it was 60 million before tax, 2015/2016 19.8 million loss (before Tax).

I think he'd be fucking embarrassed at what he read and wouldn't want any part of it, and I think his comments throughout his career would bear that out.

This type of post is so funny. People are just itching for Klopp to quit or at the very least initiate conflict with the owners so their opinions can be vindicated. So weak.

I trust in Klopp though at some point you'll realise that I don't care whether it's FSG, DIC or WTF I'll still say things as I see it rather than follow the baying mob and play to the crowd.

It would be right to aspire to a position where a club submits a formal bid for a player and, once given permission to speak to him, then agree terms.

 

It would be wrong to assume we're an outlier in the way the system currently works with the players interest tested before the clubs.

 

People hang off every word Paul Joyce says then slag off the club for leaking the information to him yet, in his own words, the majority of the information on Keita, as an example, is coming from abroad. Infact I believe he said very little is cominv from the club at the moment, Van Dijk was obviously different.

 

We say the club should shut up shop then complain that the absence of information is proof of the absence of work being done.

 

We criticise the club and say how disgraceful it is that we've tapped up a player and how our best players would be well within their rights to want a move to a less morally dubious club then try to ship them off to Barcelona without a hint of irony.

 

We judge the efficency of other clubs signings by the day they're signed and ours from the day they're first mooted as a target all while ignoring the endless headlines and assuming we should just put the money on the table like they do.

 

It's an endless stream of contradictions and willful ignorance to whats going on around us, we don't exist in a bubble, we aren't leaving players in limbo and jeopardising their futures, it isn't the most embarrasing thing to ever happen to a club, we're just going the the messy process of transfers the same as everyone else to varying degrees of success.

 

Even allowing for typo's or 'facts' you choose to put forward. It's a load of piss, shit, knob and bollocks and regardless of the 'mob' mentality 'spin' you're attempting to offset it with there's a legitimate gripe among the fanbase regarding the tiresome and repeated pattern of shouting from the rooftops who we are going to sign, leaking bullshit from the usual suspects, unsettling the player, upsetting the club they are registered with and then backing out double quick leaving the said player to swing in the wind as soon as their bluff is called.

I think most of us see that as a reoccurring pattern except you. I've asked this of you before without reply, so here it is again: Are you 'Cardie' on the payroll of LFC? Are you this years Jen Chang? (albeit without the shit through the letter-box threats?)

    • Despite the halt to the Premier League season, transfer rumours never stop and the latest snippet of news regards another left-back being linked to the Reds.

      Football 365 (via Spanish publication Sport) reports that PSG star Layvin Kurzawa is on the radar of Liverpool as they search for specialised cover for Andy Robertson.

      The evergreen James Milner has deputised many times in the role during the tenure of Jürgen Klopp, but in doing so, it takes away some of the strengths he offers in the middle of the pitch.

      Youngsters Yasser Larouci and Adam Lewis have made appearances in domestic cup and pre-season games, but they are both viewed as options for the long term.

      Kurzawa was strongly linked to Arsenal during the January transfer but he stayed put at the French champions with manager Thomas Tuchel very keen to keep hold of him.  

      The 27 year-old has a deal of experience in a domestic sense having also played for Monaco, in European competition for PSG and also on the international stage where he has won 13 caps for France. 

      He also brings a winning pedigree to the table having been part of three title-winning squads with PSG as well as a number of domestic cups.

      With his contract ending in the summer, Liverpool will be able to sign Kurzawa on a free transfer.

      In terms of his strengths, Kurzawa looks to have a nice blend between attacking and a defensive sense.

      In possession, he tries to drive forward with the ball, a trait highlighted by his 1.47 progressive runs up the pitch per 90 minutes this season.

      He likes the ball at his feet with Kurzawa where he has averaged 2.8 dribbles per 90 minutes with a success rate of 56%, and has a pass success rate of 87% during 2019/20.

      Despite being comfortable in possession, Kurzawa is not a playmaking full-back in the way that Robbo and Trent are, although to be honest, not many are in the modern Football landscape.

      An area where Kurzawa could struggle in a Jürgen Klopp side is his defensive positioning and concentration.

      This is along with a lack of confidence in his own ability which many close observers believe is a key reason that he has been in and out of the PSG side this season. 

      That last part makes him sound like a Alberto Moreno clone, but in truth we are not looking for a world beater in this position, just a player that can give Andy Robbo a breather every now and then.

      With that all said, being able to sign Kurzawa could be a pretty savvy move.

    • That article just sounds like 'shit we need to write sonething'. Teams will know this isn't a proper training camp and just a necessity to get the season complete, the TV companies off their back and get the players paid again.    Brighton 'intense schedule' fuck off its 9 games over 4 to 6 weeks. You could wrap it up in 3/4 weeks if you had to and it would be no more intense than our schedule over Dec-Jan the last few years. We played 12 games in 37 days this year, yet Brighton are moaning at playing 9 in between 28 and 42 days     Think Brighton might be more on the let's void the season being 2pts outside the relegation zone
    • Coronavirus: Premier League plan to restart season branded unworkable as clubs eye solution   Plans to put players under lockdown for a month to get the season finished have been branded unworkable – because clubs are too picky. The hotel quarantine plan is one idea mooted for Friday's next round of talks between the Premier League, EFL, Football Association and the Professional Footballers’ Association.     In a bid to conclude the season, one proposal is to squeeze remaining games into a condensed time frame in June, behind-closed-doors, with players kept in isolation to protect them from the risk of contracting coronavirus. Stadiums, hotels and training facilities would undergo a “deep clean”, with the players under strict quarantine, to enable the season to be completed by mid-July.   But Christian Machowski, whose company ESEM specialises in travel management for top clubs across Europe, believes the plan is unrealistic, because of the particular demands of the elite teams when it comes to hotels and training facilities.   “There are so many factors that come into play," said Machowski. “When clubs are looking to book hotels, one of the chief issues is what is an acceptable time to drive to a stadium? "Teams don't want to be stuck on a bus for 45 minutes to an hour, travelling to a game. “Everybody wants the best for their team, but there's only a small number of elite hotels that are suitable. “For example, there are two or three hotels in London where all the teams tend to stay when they play there. “To find a venue where 20 teams can find facilities up to the required standard is just not workable."   “In terms of training facilities, teams would also want to be as a close as possible, so that would present problems. “Then you would have to quarantine the same hotel staff for three or four weeks. “And if one team picked up an infection, whether it's a player or member of staff, that's the end of the tournament.   “It's not about teams staying in luxury, it's complicated because the infrastructure is so finely tuned for clubs in terms of what they need.”   Brighton have voiced their opposition to the proposal for a single-city Premier League finale. Officials at the club have major reservations due to concerns over hotel accommodation, the number of pitches required and the intense fixture schedule.   Chief executive Paul Barber also has concerns about even discussing a return to football while the coronavirus casualty rate around the country soars. “As creative as we want to be, people are losing their lives,” said Barber. “This is a serious, serious situation. We're totally driven towards completing the season but, at the moment, it is tough to talk about it.”   Machowski, whose company has handled almost 500 European games and training camps for top clubs over the past 24 years, reckons the number of teams involved also makes the plan impossible to pull off.   “You could maybe get away with it in the Champions League, for example, with a mini-tournament, because you're dealing with fewer teams,” said Machowski.   “But here you're talking about 20 teams and there's so much at stake. It's not like a pre-season tournament where there's a trophy at the end. “This is about titles, about relegation, qualification for the Champions League and Europa League, so no-one should be able to complain that they missed out because maybe the hotel, training facilities, travel or food wasn't right. “So it's not really workable, for so many different reasons.”   https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/coronavirus-premier-league-plan-restart-21789901
