We must be able to find someone decent that didn't walk out out on the club mid-season with absolutely no regard for how it might have fucked us up.

People make mistakes. We’re a better club with him.

He hardly ever played the 8" or 10" role under Klopp which suggests that Klopp didn't rate him there. He nearly always played out wide on the left.  The 8" role will be between Henderson, Keita and Ox this season, so I can't see him playing there. the 10" role isn't one that we seem to use very often either, so we'd essentially be paying £90 million for a backup to Mane. 

 

As said before, Coutinho isn't an elite level player, but we got an elite level fee for him. I think it would be a bad transfer to bring him back personally.   

He played 8 loads in his final season. In fact it was pretty much his default position.

I'm normally pretty philosophical about this kind of thing but it was unforgivable doing that when we we had so much still to play for. Also, completely at odds with the esprit de corps that Klopp has built. Get someone else.

Did he really "walk out mid-season" or did it just take us from July to January to get the fee we wanted. We were happy sellers. We wanted VVD and klopp has made it clear if we didn't sell coutinho, there'd be no VVD.

Of course we can hence we won't be signing him. That and the ludicrous fee and wages it would involve.

No he didn't. He pretty clearly played in an attacking midfield role with very little to no defensive or positional responsibility.

What about that shit with his back? Why did he pull that if we were such happy sellers?

Actually, I think his back was in the summer, it was some other spurious injury in January. We can speculate about the club's motives, I don't think any of us know. I'm 100% clear though that Coutinho was pushing to leave very, very hard. Even though we were in the  top 4 and still in Europe. Fuck him.

https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/philippe-coutinho/leistungsdatendetails/spieler/80444/saison/2017/wettbewerb/GB1/verein/31

 

In the league, he played 8 times as an AMC, and 6 times as an AML.

We were watching different games then.

Klopp has been 100% clear we got alisson and VVD because we sold coutinho. We signed VVD on 1st Jan, so we clearly knew coutinho was going. By about 5th Jan, Nike were selling coutinho Barca kits on their web site, even if the deal took 2 weeks or so more to officially materialise. It was all a dance, we were as happy sellers as coutinho was to leave. The deal suited everyone and anyone who doesn't think all the rest was noise and PR is kidding themselves. Coutinho left with everyone's blessing at the club.

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.

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?

Their positional judgement is questionable. In the 5-1 Brighton away game we played 3-4-3 and Coutinho definitely played  on the left of a front three, not part of a midfield six as they have it down!

I’m always more than happy to take a different source.

A toddler would know Liverpool don't spend 75m on VVD without the Coutinho sale. 

 

It's worked out well for us thankfully, usually doesn't when we sell our best players.

Hummels going back to Dortmund. 

Nice of Dortmund to sell Bayern their best players in the players peak years only to buy them back and the end of their careers or when they fail at Bayern.

He's gone - get over it

 

 

 

Talented player, but there are players out there much better suited to our system of play under Klopp

It’s weird the way the rest of the Bundesliga are subservient to Bayern. They need a few owners in there, who’re just going to tell them to go and fuck themselves.

I know we're good at selling, but I'd be amazed if we got that much for them. 

Wolves and a few German teams are interested in Camacho and we've quoted a minimum of £10m. He also wants to leave to play regularly and play in his natural position. 

 

Kent is wanted by Aston Villa and Awoniyi was supposed to be joining Schalke for around 10 to 12 million. Allan will probably go back to Brazil as Chirivella may go back to Spain too. 

 

Clyne for 15m and Mignolet for another 10m as well. Think we'll be stuck with Lallana though.
