According to the Daily Mirror, Liverpool have contacted Lyon over a £35m deal for Memphis Depay after both Georginio Wijnaldum and Virgil van Dijk recommended the club to sign him. https://t.co/UomCry9bdH

Worth a risk at that price.

Depay was looking like a future great in the Eredivisie, then he went the Mancs and seemed to think he'd already made it. As well as this he didn't seem to fit in as he always seemed to be spending any time he could back over here. Plus I can never forget that hat and poncho get up. 

 

Maybe he'd be better with two talented international team mates who've worked hard to get their acclaim in the same squad. I have no idea what he's been like in France.

He can be had for less than that. We'll probably end up paying for Depay with the money from Wilson.

Simple shape, clean lines, I quite like it; depends what the hatband is like really. The coat and scarf are prime twat territory though.

Very hot and cold.

It'd be great to take one of United's talented cast offs in and turn him in to a world beater but I wouldn't see the point in having him and big Shaq and it's hardly worth selling him to accommodate another potential bell whiff. I call bollocks.

Depay is no way in Liverpool’s range. He’s self centered, inconsistent and has no sense of group awareness. No chance he’s ever coming to us.

Pretty tidy hat Orson has on in your avatar there, mate. Repped, obviously.

 

And not just because it made me rewatch the Paul Masson ad outtakes where he’s pissed as a lord for the 700th time.

Thanks Lizzie. You've got me watching all his outtakes as well now. Nobody can neatly wrap the words Paul Masson into one sentence as many times, or say it with such elegance.

I think I bigged up Depay a while back on here. Looks a different player from the one who was at the Mancs. The drop in opposition quality might be a factor, but he's looked better at international level too. 

 

There'd have to be concerns about his work rate and attitude. But, I've started judging our transfers by comparing the quality/usefulness/price of the players we sell and the same for the players we bring in. If we can get Depay for a rarely used Grujic and Sturridge's wages off the books, it might not be that bad a signing.

    • 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.
