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.

    • Not like the English to make an absolute meal of something so easy. 
    • Jürgen Klopp has achieved many things in his time at Liverpool, but a win at Old Trafford is one box that he is yet to tick.

      Under the German’s tenure, the Reds have registered at least one league away victory against  Man City, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal.
        Currently the away record against Man United sits at two draws and one defeat. 

      The two teams also met in the Europa League in Klopp’s first season where Liverpool ran out 3-1 winners on aggregate with the second leg locked at 1-1.

       Liverpool’s last victory on the red side of Manchester came five and a half years ago (3-0).

      Liverpool head back to the home of their arch-rivals in fine form, having not dropped a point all season from their eight league games.

      In contrast, Man United are in somewhat of no-mans-land currently sitting in 14th position with just nine points on the board.

      But as we have seen many times in this fixture, ladder positions doesn’t mean a lot when it comes to deciding the end result.

      While some managers will try to downplay the record, Klopp has embraced it, seeing it as another challenge for his highly ambitious squad.

      The Mirror reported Jürgen as saying:

      “Winning there would be a big next step. It’s not a step we have to make otherwise we cannot develop, no. 

      “But, of course, for our own history with me it is obviously something we have not achieved yet.

      “This team wrote their own story and made their own history and this would be another step.   "But we cannot make it by simply talking about it.

      “ We have to go there and play the best football we can play, with the biggest balls, being ready for each challenge, fighting for every ball, all that stuff. That is what we have to do.”  

      One player who will also be looking to break a drought against this opposition is Mo Salah with the Egyptian yet to score a goal or register a assist in four games.

      Klopp believes it is not a major worry for his star, and just like the team, he would see it as a challenge to embrace with all he has.

      “It is difficult to know what he’s thinking. If someone had told me he’d never scored against United I would have said, ‘Really?’ 

      "I suppose the more you go without scoring against an opponent there may be one moment when you start scoring against them.

      “All these games are big tests. I don’t see it as a specific test for him, but, yes, it is a big test. 

      "And sometimes there will be ‘old-school challenges’ and you have to be ready for them.

      “That is how it is. But there is a reason for these stories, just like our history against United away, such as the stadium or the intensity of the game.”

      Three points for the Reds and a brace for Mo would certainly equate to a pretty special Sunday.
