Can't be bothered watching the video. What's the verdict?

He’s got very similar mannerisms to Henry.  His running and dribbling style is almost identical.  It looks like he’s playing against absolute shite though.  Nearly every single clip is him running at players.  It’s great to see but it doesn’t always translate well to the type of opposition and games we find ourselves in.

"Liverpool circling Talles, ready to swoop"

We don’t circle, we aggressively monitor.

I am doubtful of this, Mr BBC, sir.

I quite like him as a player, but £35m seems a bit on the crazy side, no? Even in this market.

Not sure where he’d play.

This is the Brazilian Lewandowski. For me, Talles is a unique player. He’s a Brazilian player who is hungry for the ball. He’s embarrassed if he loses the ball. He’s 6ft 1in but in terms of football talent he’s 6ft 7in.

Tim Vickery over here.

So according to the echo we also earned 71million by just getting to the athletico game. Another chunk of cash i didn't really factor into our winnings.

Yes. That was £29m less than last season and winning it. Clearly if the club had gone further, they would have earnt more.

That story originates in the unmentionable rag, I believe...

Only saw that on Twitter. Feel free to delete it, Mods.

You try and portray yourself as an older poster, but I'm convinced you're about 12. Grow up. 

When I was driving round through the week Talksport this week were convinced Chelsea want dunk. 

Yes, it appears he spent the early part of today revenge negging me on unrelated posts from over a week ago. Very mature.

Revenge negging is dockers territory.

Few rumours that we've enquired about Evan N'Dicka, a left footed centre back from Eintracht Frankfurt. Was linked to us earlier on in the year. 

 

Cameroon international with a price tag of £22m. 

 

Only seen him once against Monchengladbach, he seemed ok but a bit rash and ended up getting booked.

Grow up? You should listen to your own advice? Ive posted reasoned comment on both my opinion and in response to the frankly childish responses by the usual suspects here.

 

There's a group who will not counternance any opposing view that goes against their narrative. Your comment is a clear example. You dont agree with what Ive posted, fair enough, you are entitled to your opinion. So am I. But then the usual posters turn to childish comments like 'grow up' or introduce some other diversionally comment probably meant to be insulting, when their position is challenged with facts, not impressions.

 

Have to pop off and check the old bank account now to see if john henry's shill money has been deposited. Toodle pip.

You only get the money after the CL has ended. So the final being pushed back 3 months has an impact on it.

 

Similarly, season tickets haven't been announced / paid for yet.

 

I'd then imagine there are a number of corporate, sponsorship & hospitality deals that are also in the air at the moment.

 

Personally, I'd quite thankful you're not our accountant. It's also Atletico.

    • I won’t be here to see it. I have a holiday booked to do some scuba diving in Boston harbour.  
    • I love the way none of the buttons are red.   Rent free.
    • Yip disturbingly similar. Really thought we had changed tact when a backup left back purchased but selling lovren and not replacing him left a gap that turned into a chasm when VVD butchered. Don't even mention Gomez and Matip all you had to consider was how many times Lovren had to play in the previous two seasons due to that pairs unavailability. 
    • Aren't the board a gang of mingebags who would make FSG look like Floyd Mayweather?   Cant see him being there and not falling out with them. 
    • Saturday Jan 16:   Reports today that Gini has turned down our contract offer. Seems pretty certain he’s going now. I’m not happy about it and I can’t understand the logic at all. Why are we allowing him to walk away for nothing rather than give him the kind of salary that he’s earned?   Maybe I’m over simplifying it but giving him a four year contract and then selling him in two years still has to be better financially than allowing him to walk away for fuck all now? Especially as we’ll need to buy a replacement. Unless they’re under the illusion that Naby fucking Keita is finally going to come good? Please God don’t let them be under that illusion.   I hear the arguments as to why we shouldn’t give him what he wants, but look at it this way. Imagine the state we’d have been in this season if he’d left last summer, which he would have done if Barca had any money. We’re in a bad enough state as it is, but without Gini? *shudders*   So we don’t pay him because he’s 30 soon and we let him leave for nothing. Then what? We’ve got fuck all money to go out and buy a replacement because whatever cash we do have will be needed on another centre half and probably another forward. How are we replacing him?   Klopp and Edwards have earned our trust with how they’ve handled things over the last few years, but this feels different, not least because I suspect if Klopp had the choice he’d want Gini to stay. I don’t like this at all, it concerns me greatly but we have no choice but to just hope they know what they’re doing.   Sunday Jan 17:   L 0 Man United 0. Shite. At least part of it was. A lot of it was fine, good even. But when there’s nothing at the end of it then it doesn’t really count for much. We had all of the ball and they had the clearest chances. It shouldn’t be that way but this is us at the moment.    West Brom, Newcastle, Southampton, they all had hardly any of the ball but they all hd good chances. And it’s not the chances we’ve given up that concerns me as it’s not easy to go through a game against PL opposition and restrict them to no clear chances, unless you’re playing us, so I’m not concerned that Pogba and Fernandez had clear chances. I’m just completely dispirited that we didn’t have any of our own.   Actually that’s not strictly true. We had chances but they didn’t look like clear ones because the finishing was fucking risible. What was Firmino doing? He was all over the place today. Usually you have to put a gun to his head to get him to take a shot as he always wants to pass. Today he had a glorious situation where he could have rolled Robbo in and instead he shot. Badly.   His choice of pass was abysmal too. It’s like he’s lost the capacity to make any right decisions. Then you’ve got Sadio, who looks great until he gets in the box. And Mo, who’s just been fucking woeful since his angry two goal cameo at Palace after he’d been dropped for that interview with AS.   I’m depressed. There’s fuck all to do except watch the footy and that’s just too stressful now. There’s no enjoyment in this at all. Just a helplessness that the lads are struggling and need us and there’s nothing we can do for them.    Today brought that home more than anything. This should have been our moment to lord it over United. We’ve waited years for this. Decades in fact. All the shit they’ve thrown our way and now that we’re finally back on our perch we can’t stick it to them because the stadiums are empty. I know there are more important things going on in the world and people are dying. That doesn’t really make this any less distressing though.   By the time we’re back in the ground the moment to celebrate and revel in it will have long gone and there’s now the possibility that it might be United taking the title from us. What kind of sick fucking joke is this?    If we have to relinquish the title then it better be to City, because if it’s to anyone else that’s going to be the bitterest of pills to swallow.    And the officiating today was a fucking disgrace. Blowing up six seconds early because Mané was clean through? You’re never going to convince me that wasn’t a deliberate act to ensure we didn’t score. I don’t know why Tierney didn’t want us to score, I just know he clearly didn’t because that was just not a normal thing to do.   Not that we’ll say anything about it. We’re the biggest pushovers in football. You can do what you like to LFC because the only people who’ll say anything are the fans. Look at the lack of free-kicks Salah gets. He isn’t in the top 100 most fouled players this season and I saw something today saying that last season he wasn’t in the top 300 and actually ranked 16th on his own team!! 15 of our players were fouled more than Salah? Fuck off.   Why has no-one mentioned this? I don’t understand. I don’t know why Klopp has never had those stats quoted to him and asked for his thoughts about it. I don’t understand why it hasn’t been written about. I mean Christ, the Athletic can churn out 10,000 words on a new security guard farting at Melwood but they haven’t done an in depth piece on this?
