After everything Klopp has done for the club there shouldn't be any debate at board level. They money is there and with sales thia fee shouldn't be a problem. 

 

I saw that FSG don't want to spend as they are laying off people in Boston. If that's the case then they are out of order as both clubs are a completely separate entity.

THIS. What would we have done if we had not won the prize money we have now? Gone bankrupt?

 

This is what I was also going on about in the FSG thread, how the states is affecting business ownership this side of the pond, to which everyone jumped on my back. American ownership is a bit up shit creek at the moment and as a result european operations are taking the hit.

He could find the feet of a prisoner locked in an underground cell. DANIEL STOREY paints a portrait of Thiago Alcantara: Bayern Munich's metronome; an enigma who could be on his way to Liverpool.

This bloke and our front three, you wouldn't even need to play football anymore. The rest of the side could bring deckchairs. 

 

"So the mancs parked the bus and Thiago just lifts the ball over their heads to Mane - ping, pow, 1-nil." 

 

"I go over to Big Virg, he's lying on the floor I say what are you doing? He says "I'm resting", what here you're resting?" 

 

"Thiago gets the ball again, he's wearing this big Spanish grin, he lifts it over their heads again straight into Mo's path - pow, ping, 2-nil."

Who does walk in to our team?

Probably no one. Which makes it strange to suggest we are going to shuffle people around for Thiago. If he comes that would give us a great option. I don't think we change our overall style to suit him though, and that is what was being said.

This reminds me of accompanying my wife as she looks for a shiny new car , "I like it so let's just give him what he wants"

Don't get me wrong if we can get the fee lower then great. Sell Wilson and Grujic to get Thiago in then great.

 

My main concern is this supposed link between the red socks laying off people and it having an effect on us.

Can't remember the last time I was as bored about a transfer story as I am with this one. 

Only Have to go as far back as Jamal Lewis for me and he didn’t even sign. In fact every transfer is dull as fuck unless they come out of nowhere like Fabinho. There’s too much time for people to speculate, throw in their two cents, add some Chinese whispers. 
 

(I appreciate I’m saying this in the transfer window thread but I’m bored as fuck)

We are of course assuming that we aren't in for anyone else.

 

It does seem odd though - £27m for a player Klopp rates so highly isn't huge even for a 29 year old. One thing we often ignore is signing on and agent fees though - we were amongst the highest payers no so long back.

I think we have been the highest agent greasers two years in a row.

This is tripe - I think you'll find that European operations are just as up shit creek as our American counterparts, none more so than in this country.

Looks like Havertz to Chelsea is a done deal unfortunately.

 

 

Lampard is clearly taking the gung ho approach, they already look sufficiently strong in attack without Ziyech, Werner and Havertz. 
 

I’d have thought they’d have focused efforts on the back 5.

What's the general feeling regarding Umtiti ?  overrated originally due to the WC or just caught up in the Barca madness.

 

Be surprised if nobody in the Prem  took a punt at a reported £25m.

Was an excellent CB but he has chronic knee issues, it seems. Can't stay fit and Barca are desperately trying to get rid of his massive wages, which no one wants a part of.

The Club have earned enough kudos to trust them with the approach. On Thiago, I think this will get sorted after the CL 

i think its a done deal but like you say with BM still in the champions league its a case of waiting to announce it

didn't rangers pay about 7.5m for him? doesn't seem much in it for rangers. 

They will probably try to hang on for 15m.

 

He's probably thought that he's fucking great now that hes had a couple of half decent seasons in Scotland and now wants to test himself in the Premier League.
