Virgil Van Dijk

Recommended Posts

Im pretty sure he'll have a medical before we hand a cheque over!

True. Forgive me, I'm in gloat mode, so I've sort of lost all rational thought.

 

 

I'll be well chocker when this deal falls through.

Over the moon if we sign this lad. Been a big fan of his for ages and I could not give one fuck how much the Yanks will have to pay to get him. Just get him.

 

Big, fast, strong , good on the ball, great in the air, proven experience, exactly the right age, vocal and he's a fucking leader!

 

Did I mention I couldn't give a fuck how much he'll cost?

My thinking exactly if we get it over the line then it says everything about Klopps pulling power just get it done

That Graeme Kelly on Twitter was accurate on Rodgers going and Klopp being appointed.

 

He's saying fee will be £44m basic and £8m in add ons which will be heavily based around a title win.

So £44m then?

 

We could have just signed him from Celtic, but that would mean having an effective scouting network and not just using Southamptons.

No earthly idea why he would choose us above Chelsea and City but it just goes to show how important having Champions League football is. Wouldn't have even been in the discussion if we didn't have it. And unlike the last time we were in it we now have a coach with pedigree who players know and want to work with. 

 

Had a feeling we would be hearing this type of news after Klopp's quotes yesterday. His comments were extremely optimistic, even more-so than usual.

Are we using Southampton to launder money for us?. We always mysteriously pay the asking price without any messing about yet fuck other clubs round for ages over fees.

United got Pogba without CL... Chelsea got Kante without CL. You can get the players you want without CL, you just have to pay more.

I expected this kind of response from you, but do you truly believe that it's just a coincidence that all of a sudden our primary targets are dying to join us? The reports say we're matching Chelsea and City's wage offers, we're not offering more. Without CL, he wouldn't have even considered us.

Of course.. but if Arsenal offer him more money than us to Southampton and to the player, then he'll more likely be heading to Islington.

 

Salah was already very keen to join us a few years back when we couldn't offer him CL football. However we didn't want to pay up, and Chelsea swooped in.

Virgil van Dijk has won more tackles & aerial duels combined (327) since joining the Premier League than any other centre-back. 1f4aa.png

Eric Black told me Van Dijk the best CB he's coached: "Physically he’s a colossus. And he’s a No10! You want to see him with the ball."

Keita seems to have fobbed us off. As has Mbappe by all accounts.

 

Salah isn't wanted by anyone remotely near our calibre.

 

Who exactly is dying to sign for us?

 

We got turned down by a pre-puberty left back for fucks sake.

VVD seems a quality player and I am delighted if we manage to sign him despite the price,

He should strengthen us is a key area where we very weak, Its also a recognition from our owners we cant expect to keep one of the best managers in Europe if we don't compete in the transfer market to buy proven talent,

    • The Liverpool Say? I did not come on her to be fucked at! YNVA!
    • There are many reasons why Andy Robertson is one of the most popular players in the current Liverpool squad.

      Not only is he an outstanding player with a terrific work ethic, he is someone who relates to the fanbase.

      His journey from Queens Park in the Scottish Third division to playing on the biggest stages for one of the best teams in World Football is one of immense hard work after countless knock-backs.

      There is an old adage that 'you never forget where you come from' and Robbo is testament to that.

      He is as normal and grounded that a Footballer can be and proof of that was where he spent his recent winter break.

      Not in a glamorous island location, but back home in Glasgow.

      Robertson spoke to the Daily Mail about his time off.

      “It would have been no good if I came back here with heat stroke, so I did everyone a favour and went back up there and spent time on the golf course.

      To make ends meet coming up the ranks, the left-back worked for a time at Marks & Spencer.

      Once again, Robertson shows his quality as a person by not forgetting about those tough times but reflecting on them.

      “For people to say it was a fairy tale leaving Marks & Spencer behind — how many thousands of people work in these supermarkets, I felt that was a bit disrespectful.

      “These are normal lives and people can have a very good life working there. 

      “How many of them are in our stands over the weekend and there am I saying: “I have left this terrible life behind and moved on”. 

      “Of course I get better paid. Would I be happier playing football than at M&S? 

      "Yes, of course, but if that was my life I’d be the same person I am today. 

      “Money doesn’t bring me happiness, but from three or four I wanted to be a footballer. That was my dream in life.

      The Scotland captain also spoke about those who doubted him along the way.

      “I am one of the lucky ones who have said I wanted to be a footballer through my whole life.   "I held on to that when I was at Queen’s Park and people probably laughed at me when I was 16 or 17 and they asked me what I’d be.

      “People were looking at me and thinking “get a grip, it’s gone now”.   "For me, my dream was always to become a footballer. That’s why I say “yes, of course” I’m happier than if I were at M&S. 

      “Of course me being able to set my kids up for life is an added bonus and being able to give them a good start in life is an added bonus, but for me it was all about just kicking a ball every single day.”

      The grass-roots history of Robertson extends to his ability of sticking up for his teammates on the pitch.

      He is not an hatchet man by any sense of the word, but there is certainly a crafty subtleness to the way he goes about putting things right.

      Like what happened in the Club World Cup Final in Doha against Flamengo when he put Rafinha in his place after he had enough of his physicality against Sadio Mane.

      The sideline microphone picked up the former Hull man say “Sadio, I’ll get him, don’t worry.”

      He talked about what occurred.

      “I know how to deal with Sadio. 

      “That was me trying to calm my own team-mate down. I know sometimes things can affect Sadio. 

      “In that game he got targeted Once he gets booked, there is nothing he can really do. So if I were to say something short and sharp to Sadio, it might have a little effect.

      “Unfortunately, the camera and the audio picked it up. 

      “I don’t want to come across as that player, but if it comes to protecting a team-mate I like to think my team-mates protect me as much as I try to protect them. 

      “We’re a family and if one of them is getting targeted then we will all back them up.

      “That happens in any good team. Like the Man United team of old. Like with Roy Keane. They never shied away from protecting each other. Arsenal with Vieira. That was the same.   "At Man City, Fernandinho does it.

      “ For me as a team we protect each other. We are like a family. We are like brothers.   "If one of them is getting targeted or picked on it is up to the rest of us to protect him. That’s what I try to do.”  

      While the 25 year-old does not believe in regrets, there is one moment in the Anfield miracle game against Barcelona which he does not take any pride in. 

      “I do look back on that moment with Messi as one regret. I don’t like seeing it. 

      “When I saw it afterwards I was gutted.

      “We all had the attitude that day that nothing was standing in our way to get to that final and we created that atmosphere around the stadium and me and Fabinho were tracking him and there was a tangle of legs and we were on the floor. 

      “To do that to the greatest player that has ever played…

      “ I have nothing but respect for him and Barcelona, but we went into that game with the attitude that we were 3-0 down, we needed a miracle, we needed something special and if that little thing stopped the best player in the world playing to his highest potential.

      “But I do regret it. That’s not me as a person. That’s not my personality. But that night a lot of things happened that you don’t really remember.

      “It was the loudest changing room I have been in before the game. You could see the focus and the determination in all of us and maybe I went over the line.”

      “But Liverpool fans like the edge, I think. I feel that maybe this whole team is quite good at representing Liverpool right now. 

      “Liverpool is a big working class city. We go out and show hard work. 

      “We get beaten in games but what you can’t question is that every time we go out there, we give 100 per cent.’

      While many fans are dreaming of the moment that Jordan Henderson lifts the Premier League trophy, Robertson is wary of saying those very words.

      A fan came up and said “You are going to win the league, aren’t you?’ 

      “I said to him: “We are doing well so far”.’

      “I didn’t want to give him too much hope. Look, we’re a team that loves winning games and are very good at it and we need five wins now and we believe we will be able to get those five wins and more.

      “We know what position we’re in. 

      “Do we believe we’re going to win it? 

      “Not yet.   "Not until the Champions sign is over our heads."
