Kante -- sheesh. The guy went from one of the best players in the world to being bombed out.

 

Wonder if his decision to not come back after lockdown is to blame.

I think he's just starting to get too injury prone. And he's probably not going to get better at his age. I bet they think they can sucker a club who think he's still the best in the world.

He has had one injury hasn't he?

 

Played 130 games the last three years - that is without coming back to finish these last 10 for them.

He's been missing chunks of time consistently this season and he's got some kind of heart defect.

The heart thing came out years ago - he then played over 50 games the next season.

Ok, but that's not the point. Under current circumstances, his heart condition is a problem and like I said, he's missed chunks of games this season. 4 separate times this season he's missed games for periods of about 3 weeks each. Not a good sign. For where they are as a club, young team, etc..., I don't think putting him on the market is a bad decision.

Has anyone been following Emerson Palmieri over there? How's he done?

 

I know before his big injury a couple of years back he was our first choice at left back before Robertson (if you believe the reports, which were from pretty credible people if memory serves). I haven't seen him do much there so I wonder if we'd still be interested for Robertson's backup or not?

 

I suppose it would probably depend on the price.

Not too great given their interest in the 18yr old Real madrid left back, Rugelio I think who was voted the best left back in their league last year.

I will be amazed if we net spend this summer and if we do it'll be on the back of the wage bill being substantially reduced to cover it. If we spend 20m, the wage bill will have come down by 100k per week I reckon. 

 

That's exactly what I think. 15-20m net if we are lucky, and only because by that point we've shifted half the squad and taken 200m off the wage bill - so it's really just us breaking even. We won't be bringing anybody in who commands notable wages.

We're obviously not going to sign anyone.  Klopp has already said it.

The club don't know exactly how much they're going to lose from the Covid situation, and until that sorts itself out they are not going to countenance any spending.

FSG won't put the club in big debt and they won't float any of their own money in to cover it either.

United getting sancho thats a frightening attack theyre building. I know yeah "but Ole is shit" more great players cant harm your chances they will put to bed most sides through the skill up top alone  i don't believe we or city of the previous few years will show the same unbelievable consistency being near flawless again I can see city repeating this season theyve just had in terms of consistency. The gap will shrink like we shrunk it when we came second. We go again with no additions i just think we will make the job so much harder for ourselves.  We seem completely risk averse invest now for the return later, instead its money first. No lay on for you crack fiend I'm tired of chasing you down.

Utd’s and Chelsea’s attacks will be quality and young by the end of the window.  Between them they’re signing the three players people were talking about eventually replacing our front three with in the future.

Seems a no brainer. Could cover for either Salah or Mane. Better than Taki, Origi and Shaq.

Remind you of anyone ? . Frightening attack * with options and dodgy defence,  so so midfield. The clamour next year will be for them to buy proper CB and keeper (which they have at Sheffield) If and it's a big if they can find someone close to VVD they will contend in a couple of years time even with Ole there . 

 

Shows why it is vital we have a plan to replace our triumvirate next 3 to. 4 years. Elliot seems to be the only one identified as yet. 

 

As I said swallow our pride and get Phil back for a year if the worry is long term effect of covid and the financial outlook then that's the deal that makes most sense . That plus couple of home grown defenders (again Kelly seems sensible option although not overly impressed)  is best we can hope for this window. 

Going to be one of those meh windows I fear. If Klopp pulls off title next year it will be his greatest managerial achievement to date.

We are the only club in history that gets poorer with more success, yet FSG are lauded. 

 

We would have more money to spend under Moores and Parry.

Moores and Parry, it’s still painful to read these two names, who Had no idea how to run  strategically a club like Liverpool and sold us to Hicks and Gillet.

The best manager on the planet, a European Cup, a League Title and champions of the world kind of does crazy things like that.

I believe Klopp is fine with FSG on that matter. The balance in the team matters more to him than signing big names.

 

if he wants a left back deputy and and an option in attack, he will get them.
