And? Just because Hull made a daft deal with us doesn't mean other clubs should do likewise. We were also the only club in for Robbo and it doesn't sound like that's the case this time. 

 

For the record, I'm not advocating we splurge 20m on this lad given he wouldn't be a regular. But Norwich's valuation isn't that unrealistic given his age, experience and talent. 

 

 

 

He's 22 and has been average all season.  £20million is well over the top.

The thing is, I'm not asking for the moon on a stick. It'd just nice to be able to know that if Robertson got injured, we weren't relying on a 35 year-old midfielder as back up, or if any of the front three needed a rest, we weren't having to call on a midfielder with 43 goals in an 11 season career to fill in.

 

Maybe it's passé these days, but I like the principle that you should have two players for each position, plus an extra goalkeeper.

At a rough guess I'd say the club will be working on backups.  It's not a secret that we're light in that department.  But that doesn't necessarily need the sums of money spunked on it that many seem to think it does.

Or you could argue he is young and english and the prem champs want him, which means he has value.

As a backup to a club with no money.  He won't move anywhere for that though I hope they stick to that value as we'll certainly won't sign him.

People always moan about values of players back and forth all the time.  The reality is the owning club decide whatever the value is to them.  It’s down to the buying club to match it or fuck off.

Why is it? It’s more than we signed Robertson for! 

That was 3 years ago and Robertson only had a year left on his contract.

 

I don't think Lewis is worth £20 million,but young British players nearly always cost way over the odds.

Oh don't get me wrong he aint worth 20 mil, but that doesn't mean Norwich have to just give him to us.

I'd rather they kept him.

I usually sit on the FF sidelines and just soak up all the information from more knowledgeable and experienced posters.

 

What I don't understand about this apparent lack of transfer funds or activity, is how anyone can be comfortable defending it with the season we've just had (English/Europe/World Champions) when the most basic tenet of professional sports is if you don't move forward, you're moving backward.

 

I kind of agree with Senor Stroganoff for the most part that the money should be there, and they should be investing in the team.

 

I'll go back to the cat thread now.

 

 

If you look at the agents fees for the last couple of years it's obvious they've been spending loadsamoney buying extra years of existing players.

 

Money isn't the only gating item though.  Klopp has said many times, he wants a small squad, so that even marginal players get a meaningful # of games.  It's what keeps everyone @ 100%+ he reckons.

Looks like Everton aren't signing any players then, apart from a 37 year old Ivanovic. Still waiting for Usmanov.

Usmanov is even older. They're taking this 'pace goals don't count' too far, in order to make a point.

The selling club sets the price not the buying club. 
 

It’s not that difficult.

Obviously, I was replying to someone saying that's a realistic fee for him.  Which it isn't he's an average player.

 

Norwich can set whatever fee they want.  He won't sell for that so its an unrealistic fee.

Have you seen the fees we’ve demanded for shit?

We couldn't even get what we wanted for a League, Champs League wining full international centre back.  I'm not interested what happened before the Crisis most clubs are feeling the pinch with.

 

As I've said I hope Norwich stick to that valuation.

Bit of a difference between a 31 year old centre back, proven to be utter shite, never going to get any better and a young 22 year old English premium full back. 

 

If we're judging signings by the Robertson fee.  Get used to people pretending Milner can still do a job there.

Doesn't matter we still wanted a higher fee for him.  Like us Norwich won't get what they want (£20m) for Lewis.

    • So yet again the refs association changing its tune   Earlier, we didn't check if it was a Fabinho foul, after get shit for that all of a sudden we did check but not a clear and obvious error. Well its either a fucking foul or not
    • Tuchel seems a right moaner, he’ll fit right in at City.
    • Jurgen Klopp says that Diogo Jota is making huge strides since joining the club but there is plenty more improvement left in the Portuguese star.

      In his first league start at Anfield, the 23 year-old forward was a hard worker throughout and his reward was a priceless winner with a pin-point header from a Sadio Mane cross.

      Liverpool were certainly not at their fluent best, still adapting to life without Virgil Van Dijk, but gladly welcomed back Alisson from a three match absence with a Shoulder injury.

      VAR continued to antagonise the Liverpool faithful when Sheffield United won a highly debatable penalty early in the contest when Fabinho was adjudged to have fouled Blades striker Oliver McBurnie despite countless video replays not being conclusive in declaring where in fact the contact was.

      Sander Berge duly dispatched the spot-kick and it was clear that the visitors, without a win heading into this contest were growing in confidence. Roberto Firmino got himself on the scoresheet for the first time this season tapping home from close range which would have been a massive boost to his confidence. 

      Jota then scored his goal midway through the second half, his second since joining the club and speaking in his post-match (per Sky Sports) the German spoke highly of the recent arrival.  

      "He's still adapting to us, a lot of things are not natural to him that we do," Klopp said. "But that's because Wolves play differently. A lot of things he did for Wolves are what we want him to do. 

      “That he is that close already is just a sign of how good a player he is, and if he stays fit, he is 23, the future is bright. We will need his quality, I'm happy with how he's settled in.

      “He's a good player, that's what I like about him, I said it to my coaches and said it's so easy because he's such a likeable person which makes everything easy. The player is quick, his physicality is strong, he's good in the air, on the ground, but he has the quality we need, and that helps a lot."

      The player himself was delighted to have had the final say but it tinged with a bit of sadness.

      “Like I said before when I scored my first one, I just wish these stands could be full to make it even more special. But I think in the end the most important [thing] was that my goal was important to seal the victory, so I’m very pleased with that.”

      As we have seen so far this season,  results are of a such a inconsistent nature and points so hard to pick up on a consistent basis which is why every win should be savoured in their own way.

      Jota is well aware of what lies ahead and that is why momentum is key.

      “I think that’s why we need everyone to stay fit, we need everyone to give his best. I think we go game by game but we know how hard it will be so it’s important for us to get the points.”

    • I can recall united getting battered at Southampton 2 years in a row and having plenty of absolutely diabolical performances but somehow they turned losses into draws and draws into wins and it fucking ruined my teenage years the cunts, and even though Chelsea were never battered, I remember them away at Watford and Palace and were again, truly shocking but came away with the 3 points.  Point is, these nights tonight are exactly what gives us the aura of we'll just find a way to win somehow, and most of the time, just as united and Chelsea had when they were winning titles.  
    • Every goal we score, I am like this these days. Stupid VAR.
