Xherdan Shaqiri

Are you seriously suggesting that this former Bayern Munich and Inter Milan player is better than Dom Solanke?

Perish the thought. He's better than Danny Ings though.

It looks like Villa will be hosting a fire sale. Do they have any tubby bastards we can jump on?

Only Swiss thing I could come up with that wasn't shite triangular chocolate.

Toblerone is boss, especially the white one.

Didn’t realise he was only 26. He’d be a great fit for us and for only £12m he’s a steal. He’d be a far better replacement for our front 3 than Adam f’king Lallana

Sturridge would go for at least 10 mil, plus his wages would be higher than what Shaqiri would be on, so in financial terms it'd work out fine. Add to that Shaqiri would be actually available most of the time, he can take a good free kick and isn't a bad long range shot. I could think of worse options to bring on for the final 20 of a game.

I can't see anyone paying anything for Sturridge. Best we'll get is a free where someone is willing to pay his full wage.

That's quite possible. Aside from Sturridge, there are still enough fees to gain and wages to save from players contributing virtually nothing at the moment (Sturridge, Markovic, Origi) that would comfortably cover the Shaqiri transfer. 

 

Another thing is that Liverpool are on a nice little run of good pick-ups from relegated teams. If the little Swiss man can be somewhere between Gini and Robbo in terms of usefulness, the price being touted will be another bargain from the basement.

He's tiny, fat and slow. How is he going to deputise for Mane or Salah exactly? He's a 'hug the touchline' type winger, not an inside forward.

 

His stats are rubbish. He's just been relegated. He wasn't even the standout player in that team and he's been hugely disrespectful to his team mates in the press and only turns up when he wants. Definition of a luxury player. Fuck the fuck off.

    • Saturday Jun 8:   Fuck all happening at the moment. The most interesting thing I saw today was something on Twitter that might have been complete bollocks for all I know. It got my attention though. Klopp was apparently invited onto the Graham Norton Show but declined, as he preferred to go on holiday instead.    Completely understand why Kloppo couldn’t be arsed with it, as he doesn’t get much opportunity to get away from it all and spend time with the family. Besides, he’s not really into all that celebrity jazz anyway. Still, imagine how fucking funny he’d have been on there. He’s the only manager with the personality to pull a show like that off.   Actually I tell a lie, my man Tim Sherwood could do it. If he had a job. And if he ever actually won something. Tell you who couldn’t pull it off. Pep, the boring bastard. He’d be whining about not getting credit for his treble and telling everyone about how big John Stones' balls are. Actually, that might make decent telly thinking about it.   Is this what the summer is going to reduce me to? Just talking absolute shite about nothing to fill space? Anyone makes a crack that it doesn't take the summer to have me doing that can fuck off.   Oh wait, something did actually happen today. Robbo scored a screamer for Scotland. It was like the shot he had in the final against Spurs only this one went in. Willing to bet here and now that he bags at least a couple like that next year. He’s finding his range I reckon. Imagine how good he’ll be when he adds a few goals to his armoury. We’re talking Balon d’or.
      Sunday Jun 9:   England won the third place game against the Swiss after penalties. I didn’t watch it as to be honest I didn’t even know it was on. I wouldn’t have watched even if I had known, but I might have dipped in and out of it just to check on Shaq.   Trent had a good game, apparently. I only know this because Lineker was tweeting about him. Again. Lineker obsesses about Trent almost as much as Man City’s press office obsesses about the Reds.   In the final, Portugal beat Holland, which is a minor blow to Virgil’s hopes of pipping Messi. It shouldn’t make any difference either way really, but if he’d skippered Holland to this trophy it might have had an influence. Bernardo Silva was named player of the tournament, much to the visible disgust of Ronaldo.        Maybe he is just a selfish, self absorbed, individual glory above the team wanker, or maybe he’s just playing up to that now and it’s all just some elaborate in-joke between him and his team-mates.   He pulls this kind of shit all the time. The hissy fit he threw a few years ago when Arbeloa nipped in front of him to score a back post tap in was sensational. Is he really this much of a diva or is he just winding us all up? I reckon it’s a bit of both, as that one today can’t possibly be real.    Meanwhile, one of his Portugal team-mates is hoping for a call from the Reds. Bruno Fernandez (who I mentioned a couple of weeks ago after he said he likes us better than City), is reportedly wanted by Spurs to replace Eriksen but he’s holding out in the hope that Klopp makes a move.   United want him too, but what self respecting decent footballer is going to join that circus when there are better offers on the table?    They are on the brink of signing that Welsh winger from Swansea and they’re being linked with Longstaff from Newcastle. They have no idea what they’re doing. They tried the “throw massive money at superstars” approach and it bombed spectacularly. So now they’re going oppo and doing it the “sign young and hungry players from unfashionable clubs” route.   It won’t work because they don’t have the structure (or manager) in place to make it work. It’s a long way back for them fuckers.     This is just a teaser, click here to read the full article   Please note that 'the Week that Was' is only available to website subscribers.

    • I'll give you Alisson (bought months later obviously), where has Klopp been clear that there is no VVD purchase without Coutinho leaving? We tried to buy him in the previous summer of course, or was that just a smokescreen?
    • The important thing here is, what's his natural position? 
    • Because in the summer he wanted us to sell for the 90m or whatever it was Barca were offering at the time and we wouldn't sell at that fee. As soon as they met our asking price, Linda and John were at his house packing his bags.
