If we’re going back 40 or more years I’d like to add Uli Stielike, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Bernd Schuster and Paul Breitner. 

Breitner spent a couple summers at band camp -- German through and through

If you're including the Welsh then you can stick Bale in there - back in his left back days.

Des Walker had a crap time at Sampdoria.  You should probably have Platt, who had a great career in Italy.

And don't forget Vinny Samway, Las Palmas legend.

Chris Waddle was excellent for Marseille.

Hoddle not quite so good at Monaco.

Ince did pretty well at Inter.

Wilkins, Hateley and Luther Blisset at Milan (maybe not so good).

Souness at Sampdoria - and Trevor Francis.

Didn’t Tony Woodcock play for Bayern Munich?

One for the older forumites , but John Charles is still revered at Juventus as one of their best loved players.

 

Just checked with Wiki - 155 games - 108 goals . not bad for a guy who could play centre half as well.

Generally rated at the time as both the best centre-forward and best centre-half in the world.

In the early 90s, nearly all the best German players were in Serie A. Inter had Matthaus, Brehme and Klinsmann, and later Sammer. Juventus had Hassler, Kohler, Reuter and Moller. Roma had Voller and then Hassler. Lazio had Riedle and Doll. Fiorentina had Effenberg. By the mid-90s I think all of them were back in the Bundesliga. In the late-90s, the likes of Ziege and Lehmann went to Milan but struggled, as did Heinrich at Fiorentina. Bierhoff was the only German of that late-90s era to be successful in Serie A, and he was virtually a nobody before moving to Italy.

Woodcock was Cologne I think?

Joyce (so, the club) has just posted on twitter that we'd listen to bids north of 25m for Lovren. Also says Milan's new DoF is a big fan (though also confusingly saying that there's been "no contact" yet.

 

All I can say is KA-CHING! Would be great to get another young CB with potential to develop as our fourth CB, or, and hear me out here, take that money and go trigger Alderweireld's clause. I think that'd be a brilliant option - he's a top player, and yes, he's older and somewhat injury-prone, but as a player to slot in alongside Virgil over the next two years while Gomez continues to develop to his full potential I can't think of a better choice. Matip to serve as a great emergency option fourth-choice.

Are we buying anyone ? 

Given we are in a gazillion competitions next season might be nice to have another striker at least oh and that Dutch kid that plays alongside VIrg would be nice.

I was daydreaming about the mighty reds, as I do from time to time. And I started pondering about the fact we don't have any German players, which I thought was quite unusual. 

 

Are they all shit? Are they not suited to the way Klopp plays? Are they all kuntz? and Klopp can't be arsed with them? 

 

Really gets the noggin' joggin'

 

Matip is German. People often forget that.

    • Simon Mignolet is attracting a deal of interest by Liverpool's Premier League rivals but it has emerged that the Reds are just as keen to retain the Belgian goalkeeper.

      The Mirror reports that Crystal Palace and Brighton are interested in signing the 31 year-old Belgian for a transfer fee in the range of £8 million.

      However a different report from ESPN says that valuation falls short of their own and in any case, the club is determined to keep the veteran who they view as a fantastic influence in the dressing room.

      James Milner said as much in April "It's incredible how he is around the training ground, he has the best attitude I've ever seen in my life."

      It is that sort of high praise which is echoed across the club with Jurgen Klopp, goalkeeping coach John Achterberg, the rest of the backroom team and the playing squad wanting Mignolet to extend his six-year stay with the club.

      It is also believed that sporting director Michael Edwards has not actually put a fee on Mignolet as he does not foresee a sale taking place.  

      Mignolet who has another two years to run on his current deal ,was signed from Sunderland in 2013 and has made over 150 appearances in that period.    But he only added two cup appearances to that tally in 2018/9 after the summer signing of Alisson and the Brazilian did not give him a look in with his constant level of exceptional performances.

      Liverpool have been linked Alex McCarthy for Southampton in recent weeks to fill the back-up role, but more and more, clubs are very keen on having a couple of senior players on their books to help the younger players coming through as well as the new signings.

      In some ways being a number two is one of the toughest in football as you never know if, let alone when your number will be called.

      But you cannot buy respect and it seems the Belgian has that in spades. 

      It remains to be seen what will transpire between now and the end of the transfer window, but it seems a near on certainty that Mig has a place at Liverpool for the foreseeable future if he wants it.

    • "Watched by one and a half billion people worldwide..."   Yeah, right. Who the fuck watches the Commonwealth Games? Why does it even exist anymore?
    • Centre backs are harder to profile statistically and this is based on limited minutes but it's obvious what Edwards and the laptop nerds see in him:     That would look pretty solid if you were talking about a 26-year old. From a 17-year old, it's ... *drools*
    • Hopefully Spurs are not really our business this upcoming season but still, I am definitely NOT a fan of seeing Spurs fix the biggest problem in their squad with the best available player to do it with. Ndombele is seriously good.   Plus it means Lyon will definitely hang on to Aouar until next season at the very least. He is going to cost us an arm and a leg when we eventually go to pry him away from them.
    • Looks like it. Hopefully helps those useless cunts take points off City.
