Virgil Van Dijk

Be very happy if it goes through.

 

Reminds me of a less cuntish Rio Ferdinand.

 

Agree, a stronger version of Ferdinand. From what I've seen he appears to be a perfect centre back without any obvious weaknesses.

Southampton will get 50-60 mill for him, and VVD will be the top earner at LFC. The big hurdle was getting him onboard with Klopp's vision, and say "no thanks" to City, Chelsea, etc. That's happened, and the deal should now go through.

 

Ace!

So if this happens.

Sounds like Robertson might be the LB. Clyne and TAA for RB

 

-----------------Mig

Clyne----Matip--VVD--Robertson

 

------------------Can

----------Lallana--Coutinho

Mane-------------------------Salah

-------------------Firmino

 

Doesn't look too bad

I wonder if this deal means they'll miss out on Keita and felt they had to push this one through.

 

Add another striker and midfield option there and we are looking far stronger

Wow...even when people kept saying he preferred us I didn't expect us to actually sign him, he's a monster, he's a huge signing for us! Get Keita over the line and Keita, Van Dijk and Salah is a impressive start to the window, it adds bags and bags of pace all over the pitch.

I'd switch Mane and Salah, have them cutting in (Mane is right footed isn't he?)

Might want to temper that enthusiasm.

Cant see Keita being done myself. I do wonder after them saying they wont sell Keita and the Fulham lad wanting Spurs made them think they had to push this through

Also worth noting if we get 20ml for Sakho then are starting CB will have cost us £40ml net between them.

 

 

Moneyball innit

Yeah

Mane played on the left

The front 3/4 are normally pretty fluid anyway these days.

He's a mix of Baresi, Maldini, Stam, Bonucci and Ramos.

 

Seriously though, if we're spending £60M I'd have hoped it would be on a goalkeeper or striker as they're the points winners in this league.

Mongoloid City fans on Bluemoon, who almost all refer to us as dippers, have gone from him being the best thing since sliced bread to an overpriced untested defender not fit to lace John Stones boots.

Like De Gea? And Zlatans 17 goals in 28 Apps? And still finish 6th.

    • Bit we've got Adam Lallana who is back from injury and like a new signing.
    • I don't know what to think about that. It's funny we're even arsed about doing it and we could ... but ffs, what the fuck are they playing at doing that and secondly getting caught? 
    • Jurgen Klopp has downplayed any suggestion that Liverpool struggle to defeat their top six rivals away from home.

      In the first two months of Jurgen Klopp’s tenure, the Reds had recorded two fine victories away to Chelsea (3-1) and Man City(4-1).

      But in recent times, it has become more of a struggle.

      The Reds have picked up just the one victory from the last away 12 fixtures, which was a 2-1 victory away to Tottenham last September.

      It is a stat which caused some surprise for Klopp, but he says the pleasing thing was that the performances were to the level he liked.

      The Mirror reported Klopp as saying:

      “Performance-wise, that’s why it’s so surprising.

      "There was one at Arsenal where we should have won when Virgil [van Dijk] had two no-brainers that he didn’t score, the header against the post.

      “Against Man City we lost last year but that is not a match you lose usually.

      “The margins at the end were so small with the ball not over the line."  

         Klopp alluded to the fact that some of those fixtures were played when his team was at a significant disadvantage compared to the opposition.

      “We were always the [Premier League] club that was in the Champions League the longest.

      “We lost 1-0 at Chelsea two seasons ago when we came from a Champions League game and they were not involved anymore. That helps.

      “I don’t remember these specific away games but it was pretty rare that it was a performance that deserved to lose an away game.

      The manager said sticking to your own strengths is the most important thing when it comes to these big fixtures.
        “We cannot plan winning against a side like Chelsea, City, Tottenham, United.

      “You have to play how you play to deny their strengths and push through your strengths. Then you have a chance.

      “The last game we won at Tottenham was pretty early in the season. That makes it all different.

      “We played against Arsenal early in the season (the 4-3 win in 2016). It was one of the best games for a while and we did really well in that game. 

      “So let’s just keep going and we will see what happens.

      “It is not an obvious problem.”
