That Shaqiri to Monaco rumour was mad.

 

Why would Monaco have £33m in their arse pocket for an attacker, and go "We need Shaqiri".

 

They haven't bought anyone to replace Tielemans, and so in the dying embers of the transfer window, they crack onto the idea of the X Man being the answer to their gap in central midfield.

That Thielemans is going to be a massive player over the next couple of years. Loads of talent.

They didn’t. They were supposedly asking for a loan worth €12m and Liverpool supposedly would only sell, not loan, at €36m.

Yup. No helicopters yet, but we did have McCarthy having to drive himself down to Palace yesterday, presumably because Palace are cheap bastards who couldn’t afford a train or flight ticket.

I suppose you never know.  Shaqiri from Switzerland, money, and the tax haven that is Monaco, maybe there's something in it. Maybe he's got a strong, or good-to-strong, portfolio and he wants to guard himself against the drop in the pound.

If these tightarse yank twats aren't willing to spend big, at least get Coutinho back on loan. Going into the new season without improving the squad whatsoever is massively risky and frankly a disgrace, considering all that we had achieved last season. We should be building on last season's achievements, not going backwards. Wake up FSG, you fucking idiots.

People wanting Coutinho back because "it's only a loan fee, just pay it" and the like should remember that the most expensive player in our history, van Dijk, costs us just under £25m/year when you combine the amortisation of the fee and his wages.

 

Barca are asking for a loan fee of that amount (in accounting terms, this would take the place of fee amortisation). In addition, his wages are £10m/year. So his total cost would be £35m for the year.

 

He's a good player, but we've improved since he left. The idea that Edwards and Klopp are going to spend more on him than we've ever spent on a player (on a per-year basis) to bring him back is daft. And that's before you even factor in his disgraceful behaviour to try to leave Liverpool. No chance he's coming back.

Why would they want to delay 6 months for the deal to go through? They could’ve asked the extra cash there and then? It was very early in the window wasn’t it? It’s veering a bit too close to a conspiracy theory for me Barry. Most likely what happened was what the media reported.

It was pretty much reported in the press we paid a don't be a bunch of cunts tax! And they didn't want to do it there and then, because they wanted to show their fans they could stand up to us, their fans were going mental and wanted us fucked by the PL. This is a nice compromise for everyone.

24 hours and all this shite will be over.

Can we still buy after tomorrow and play them in Europe and the world club championship?

Don't think so. Could be wrong but I think we can still sell after 5pm tomorrow but can't buy.

I'll put you down as a "maybe".

I assumed if we bought (because you can buy at any time you just can't register players to play), we may be able to register them for European competition as the uefa deadline is later and it would mean for the PL we'd be able to register in January. The way klopp operates with nursing players in very often, I just wondered if that might still be an option for us.  There's 6 CL games and 2 world cup games before Xmas, so would relieve some pressure off the squad still.

Robbo was interviewed for the football daily podcast on the BBC and he basically said it was always Klopps plan not to buy anyone.

European champions and pipped to the league and we're talking about the return of the little Cou cunt. Saying that, I'd be on board if Jurgen wanted him.

It's been shit. I like buying players. I like the summer transfer window. The to and fro of negotiation. I like getting excited about new players and then seeing them play. It's been like that all my life. 

 

None of that shit this season. Fucking Adam Lallana playing defensive midfield or whatever it's called these days. 

 

Yes, I am spoilt.
