Klopp renewing is vital.  The fans will have to stick with him if we have a bad season though, I think this is almost guaranteed considering the intensity we play at and when you take the 30 year wait/hangover into account.  Also, you can't expect all of our kids and cheap buys to deliver year upon year.

 

Get him signed up, we just need Pep to go and we can have a good go at dominating for years to come!

 

Plus it seems like we need the prize money otherwise we will have to sell our big players.

Indeed it is vital, but I doubt that a lot of our fans will stick by him if we have a bad season, seems ridiculous even saying that, but some of our fans are knee jerk, self entitled twats. Jurgen was getting some stick on social media for the performances during the restart, and we’d just won the fucking League.There were a few on here that wanted him gone 12-18 months after he arrived. I despair of our fans sometimes.

They’re fans, not supporters. There is a difference.

Jesus that's a bit of a pr disaster right there if he becomes the player he's supposedly destined to become.

 

I don't see how any big club would want to be associated with that, unless the kid was the next Messi. Hillarious in a way that you might have Spurs pumping a bit into local youth services trying to get kids away from drugs and gangs and this lad is related or at least friends with one of the biggest cartels in Europe. I mean looking back in the cold light of day, I defended Luis for some mad shit (I still have a soft spot for the crazy lunatic) but trying to condone Parrott's mates would be a hard sell. I suppose if he isn't directly involved it's not fair to tarnish him.

Aye madness, best mates with liams son lee(cant remember if related) and theres rumours about Troys dad that arent good... Best thing Troy could of done is keep to himself but just a month back he was driving one of the young cartel ones about!!

I don’t think the buy back clause is anything other than a soothing balm to make everyone feel better about it. If we’re selling him we clearly don’t think he’ll hit the heights we originally believed he would, so we won’t be buying him back. And in reality, Brewster won’t want to come back after everything that’s happened. The buy back clause is the marshmallow on top of a hot chocolate. Nice, but completely superfluous.

There was hype around Brewster at some point, but that's not permanent. I don't think Klopp rates Brewster that highly. Simple as that. For example, you can see he rates Jones. That kid will never go on loan, he gets consistent sub appearances now. Brewster just isn't at that level. If we end up using Brewster to gather funds, I struggle to see how that's a disgrace.

I think the point is not if Brewster should stay or go, it's just he was last year's excuse for not buying a forward because we would block his path, when he clearly didn't have a path. Last year it was a smoke and mirrors excuse spread by the likes of Pearce and Reddy.

That’s because no one seems to want Origi.

To be honest, I think we could say that about origi every summer since he arrived at the club, probably including his 1st pre-season here. Any promise he'd shown early in his career vanished in the 12 months we left him in France and he's clearly never been good enough, despite an unreasonable about of amazing moments.

Leaving the squad woefully thin.  Embarrassing we can't add to a title winning squad. 

 

No depth at CB, no depth at forward.  How is that a good idea? It would be a bad idea going into a normal season let alone one even more congested due to covid.

I don't think selling Brewster makes any difference to the depth of the squad (in the competitions we try to win anyway) , he was nowhere near a game. He's at best 9th choice for those 3 places with the main 3, minamino, origi, bunhead, Shaq and chamberlain in front of him. And probably Jones and Gini too. In fact keita would get a game on the left and maybe Trent on the right before Brewster would get a game!

I don’t think Klopp ever rated him.  The club/Klopp just blew smoke up his arse to get him to sign a contract to protect their asset.  It looks like it’s about to pay off because somebody is paying money for him.  They clearly made him some promises to get him mixing with the first team and stuck to it which is why he was all over the clubs socials.

 

It seems the anti-owner crowd want to spin this one again.  The club didn’t really say a word about not blocking Brewster.  They sent him on loan and gave Origi a new contract after scoring in the champions league final where he appeared to be happy to play back up.  Feels like Origi has gone backwards again and we do need a better back up or player in the mix.  The club clearly agree which is why Werner the situation arose.  Origi being on the bench at the weekend told you everything you need to know about Klopp’s view.

Thing with Divock though is he can come on and look shit or be a world beater. We just dont know which version we're going to get when he comes on.

 

To be honest, after he scored those goals in the CL semi and final, only the hardest noses would have grumbled about giving him a new contract. He was our Jimmy Glass!

 

Im in 2 minds about Brewster, Id like to see what he could do in the first team and not just a cobbled together team for the EFL or FA Cup 3rd round. I think it's incredibly hard for these lads to make a breakthrough and playing them in understrength sides makes it even harder. Yes, you can get flashes. We get that with Naby as well and we're still waiting for him to be the player we want.

 

At least with Brewster if we do sell and insert a buy back clause and he does look good elsewhere, what have we really got to lose?

Let's be a bit honest with ourselves. Origi is shocking 9 times out of 10.

There were definitely a couple. Think The Judge was one. One or two others as well.


No. He criticised him, overly and it made no fucking sense.

I'm sure I remember someone challenging him on it, asking if he wanted him sacked and he said yes.  

Not that it really matters.

So you can’t name a single poster that wanted Klopp gone.

Bale to Spurs on loan and Reguilon to Spurs with a buy back clause. Still apparently in the market for a striker.

Rumoured to be Das Boot, isn't it?

We should re-sign Skrtel. Just as a warning.
