I guess it depends on what the alternative is. If it's would I take a world class player back just like that I'd say yes fucking please.

A guy who knows our system and could pretty much slot straight in and help us win the title? Yeah, I’d have some of that. Still, ain’t gonna happen so fuck him, the malingering rat

Doesn't it depend on the price (or the opportunity cost)?

 

Like, if he costs 15m and we can still get everyone else we want this summer, then sure. But that would never happen. If it's a straight choice between Coutinho and Werner or someone like that, and we don't have the money to do both, then I'd prefer Werner.

 

The problem with this whole hypothetical is that it's just way too unrealistic. Barca just paid 140m for him. They're not selling him for less than 100m (and even that would surprise me). There is zero chance we'd be interested at that price. ZERO.

In terms of natural talent, he’d still be no 1 in the team, so you’d have to really.

Imo strength, speed and height are natural talents too so I'd class Salah and Van Dijk higher. Coutinho and Alisson are probably about level.

Sorry I probably should’ve been more specific. I meant footballing talent e.g., technique, first touch, etc.

Course I would have him back , he's one of the best players in the world, but chances of it happening are close to zero. Cost a fortune and he forced a move mid season when we needed him. The club didn't know Salah, Bobby and Mane would step up and plug the gaping hole he left. Not worth thinking about really

As a person. Absolutely not, fucking  Michael Owen, Steve Mcmoneyman, Fernando Torres little cunt. 

 

As a player. Yes,  he'd walk straight into the " half space " as Jürgen likes to call it.

Pretty much exactly this.

 

Obviously, yes. And obviously it isn't happening.

    • Yeah.   Klopp made a good point in his post match presser. He asked the room if anybody thought it was a penalty and 1 or 2 said they did (probably local Naples reporters). But the fact a couple did means it wasn’t a clear & obvious error.    However, it certainly wasn’t a clear cut penalty either. Personally, I think if it was referred he’d have overturned it as he didn’t stand for any of their shit all night - and IMO it should have been referred.   I’ve said before I like VAR, or at least the idea of it, but the implementation isn’t as expected & it’s gotten worse since the World Cup 18 months ago (although not perfect, it was actually decent in Russia IMO).    Anyway, I’m over it. Treat it as a minor inconvenience / annoyance and back us to win the next 4.
    • Virgil Van Dijk has played down the impact of Liverpool’s 2-0 defeat at the hands of Napoli in their Champions League clash on Tuesday evening.

      The Reds were looking good for a well earned point against the Italian side before a debatable penalty and a late strike in injury time by Fernando Llorente was enough to see the home side claim the three points.

      But Van Dijk said the defeat which was only their second in a competitive fixture this campaign, was not a cause for worry.

      The Liverpool Echo reported the defender as saying:

      “It didn’t feel like a wake-up call, I think both sides were focused fully on the game, It felt like it was going to be a draw, and then the penalty changed everything in the game. 

      “It shouldn’t be a wake-up call - we have been performing since the start of the season outstanding, and so there is no reason to panic.

      “And in the game as well, we played well, we put them under pressure, we created opportunities on the break. 

      “So there were a lot of positive things , the only thing not positive was the result.”  

      Van Dijk believed the final score was not a true reflection of the overall contest and the performance was full of merit.

      He also believed the penalty awarded against Andy Robertson completely changed the outcome of the game.

      “I think 2-0 didn’t really reflect the game.

      “I think we were much better (than last season) we lost it (again), but we played well, we had opportunities on the break, we played in some moments.

      “We felt comfortable, then they got the penalty which changed the game.”

      “Lots of times you can say that it felt a little bit harsh, but the ref made the decision so you have to accept it.

      “Everyone knows how tough it is to come here and beat them, first of all, but also to play well against them. 

      “But you could see we put them under a lot of pressure to try and win the ball quite a lot high up the pitch, and try to break on them.”

      The Reds will look to return to winning ways when they play Chelsea at Stanford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

    • Excellent report as per usual Dave,I agree with you on the VAR.... but what if as was suggested (by someone!)that captains are given 3 chances to question the decision (tennis & cricket)... works fine there & doesn't take long & everyone knows what the fuck is happening at least! 
    • He was decent here, but we replaced him with a better player in Fabinho. 
    • Once Everton touches you, you're better off asking a friend to make it quick.
