Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

Use of words very telling. Confirming the owners not given him any money this year. 

 

No way he will sign another contract with these owners. People have said he only serves 7 years at a club, that's just a coincidence.

 

He would have stayed longer at Dortmund if the team hadn't started struggling. He will stay as long as he thinks his methods can continue to work under the owners restrictions.

Very disappointed. Expected Fernandes to play for Sporting in the first half, sign for us at half time, and run out in a Liverpool shirt in the second half.

We're not signing anyone by the looks of it. It might just bite us in the hoop when any of the front 3 are out injured but just have to trust Klopp. And that's all there is to it really.

 

We're fuckin shite at 2019 summer transfers.

That goal he scored? I expected him to do that. But against his own keeper.

Does seem a bit strange he keeps mentioning money and how we can't or won't be doing big deals....the comments about Coutinho and him saying 'big big big big big money' and us not spending it are a bit strange.

 

Why not just say 'i am happy with my squad and what have'

 

All this could be a game to keep things under radar, could all be a game protecting any deals we may be looking at to stop us getting rinsed - but Klopp's comments are to me a bit funny

Signing 60/70m players every summer isn’t sustainable.  The thing is when you do that the price just keeps going up as do the wages as well.  After spending a lot in the last 18 months the club have decided to put the brakes on to stop clubs thinking they can take the piss.  Everyone has been sucking Edwards off for how well we have done in the transfer market in and out.  It reminds me of a quote from Jack from Lost.  “Everybody wants me to be the leader until I make a decision they don’t like.”

 

Klopp spoke ages ago about packing it in if he ever had to spend 100m on a player.  He’s since said that club had to then convince him to spend big money on Virg and Alisson because that’s how it is now and we would get left behind if we didn’t.  He couldn’t be making things clearer.  Talking about the long term and how just signing quick fixes and players they haven’t thoroughly scouted because they’re the latest flavour in the newspapers isn’t his style and never has been.

 

The owners, Edwards and Klopp are clearly all on the same page.  We’ve just won the fucking European Cup.  Klopp has been here for nearly 4 years and is signed up for another 3 but that’s somehow a sign he’s not sticking around.  Jesus fucking christ.

So Clyne is out for 6 months, Lallana is just Lallana and now Ox is struggling with a calf injury to get to level he wants to according to Klopp, if we don’t sign anyone then the club needs their fucking head read, it’s an opportunity to kick on not fall back, utter madness.

It will be very disappointing if we don’t buy anyone. That said, I agree with Klopp outlook on players. Buy the right ones for the fee that makes sense at the time. Don’t buy for the sake of buying. Hopefully we bring in some quality before the end of the window.

Yup. I've been in rant mode this week like and probably too angry but absolutely agree with this. Its ridiculous.

I don't get this reasoning. Who are the right ones? Even if you identify the right players at the right price theres no guarantees. Similarly you could get someone in as a stopgap and he could make a name for himself. I believe Robertson was like that.

The players the manager thinks can improve his team and squad without disrupting the flow of current players he likes or the progress of young players he wants to develop and who are available at a price that he seems acceptable for the level of improvement they bring. He has spoken bout this at length multiple times, mate; if you watch it you’ll get the reasoning. 

 

You don't get the reasoning behind buying the right players at the right price. I guess this is probably a fundamental disagreement, because the only other combinations of that are the wrong player at the right price, the right player at the wrong price, or the wrong player at the wrong price. Whichever way you want it, the manager doesn’t seem to agree with any of those, so I guess you’re going to have to put up with our unbuilt squad of European Champions, whilst watching from the Main Stand that wasn’t developed. Bad times.

Oh bore off you whopper. This line of thinking is why we've largely remained off the top of the ladder for nigh on 30 years.

 

The European Cup is over now, its finished. That season is done.

Yes, that’s right. Not buying the right players at the right price is the reason we’ve been playing ff the ladder. Good one. Shut up and buy Carroll. Shut up and buy Benteke. 

 

Cunt.

Ah right, better not buy anyone ever again unless they are meticulous because we got stung on some bad buys. Do you even know how football works? Nothing is guaranteed.

 

The reason the club stresses not making the wrong buys has nothing to do with Klopp but everything to do with american businessmen. They hate transfer fees. Its completely alien to them, it feels like doubling their outlay. Its a system alien to their sports culture.

 

Rightly or wrongly, this 'European Cup winning" side and Jurgen will be judged on this season alone. I hope he's made the right decisions, because right now it looks like we are relying heavily on fortune shining again.

FSG are suddenly getting tight just when the money is rolling in? Come on you cunts, get your fingers out. There is no way we should be relying on crocks like Lallana, Clyne and Ox as squad options, or a kid like Brewster. We need proper cover at left back and right back, a proper playmaker in midfield and a viable option to play up front. Start spending the money that's burning a hole in our pocket.
