I'll be brutally honest, I want Klopp gone. It's not going to get any better under him.

 

there were a few others if I remember correctly, Funnneeee and Eeyore among them but can’t be arsed  trawling for them

I wasn't going to be the one that brought it up, but i remember that happening.

It's the main reason I remember his name, although he seems to have put it behind him (unsurprisingly).

I distinctly remember the toys being thrown out the pram in spectacular style by several posters on here after that Spurs 4-1 beating at Wembley in October 2017. Plenty of people voicing their doubts and a few saying Klopp wasn’t the man.

Brewster out with a buy back clause and Thiago in. That will do. 

To be honest, that's still settling for a bit of disappointment really. On one hand to snare Thiago whilst retaining Wijnaldum would be boss, but on the other getting rid of a potentially hot prospect without a replacement would seem foolish. Doku and Thiago please

Brewster is not ready for a club like us, yet or ever. He needs to play every week, a loan will be good , but 25 M£ for him is a stunning deal for us.

Strange that so many people nowadays consider goalscoring as being overrated.

 

We have a lad who has scored many goals all through his career so far. Went out on loan to an average Championship team, scored 1 in 2 there. Scored more than any of our other players this preseason despite playing few minutes. Only 20 years old with room to improve but being written off as not good enough when he has barely played 5 full competitive games with the full senior team. Absolutely bonkers.

And meanwhile there are also people who are complaining Firmino isnt doing enough in front of goal but are simultaneously happy for us to sell off a very good young natural goalscorer like Brewster. Interesting stuff.

He’s not even getting on the bench ahead of Origi.  All we are going to do is ruin his career by keeping him here anyway.  If by some miracle he does a Kane and develops into a class player then us buying him back for 40/50m will be fine.  In the meantime if it puts money in the bank to sign players all the better.

25 for someone that doesn't play is big money. The Buy back clause probably gives him more motivation to come back and suits us.  If he doesn't, i presume we will have a sell on too? Looks like a win-win.

What has he done to prove he is?

I want him gone today. Sick of him transforming us into the best team in to the best team on the planet hoovering up the top trophies while playing scintillating footy. #KLOPPOUT

Personally I think Brewster is at least 9th in line to get a kick. Which means he won't get a kick. If he had a chance of scoring goals for us, he'd be further up the pecking order, he can't score sitting in the stands. Has the lad even played a minute in the PL or CL?

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.

Not at all

If he goes there and gets 15 goals this year we will invoke it. It's gets substantial money through the door and allows us to up his value. Even if we don't want him, if he scores 15/20 goals this year he will be worth 40- 50ml next year. We will do what Real etc do and invoke the clause to sell him on and bring in more money, if he looks good enough we bring him back and it costs us a few quid to Sheff Utd for developing him

No - I think he has only made the bench a few times.

 

This is a blinder tbh - Klopp is not averse to giving young players time but Brewster never got a look in. Which tells me he hasn't impressed in training. I think with Jones, Elliott and Neco we can't really work another lad into the mix.

He's not been sold on the sayso of TLW. If Klopp wanted him he would be kept.

Im disappointed Brewster looks to be leaving. To me, there's nothing better than a young lad coming through the ranks and becoming a big player for the club. Yes, I know we got Brewster via chelsea's academy.

I reckon if Brewster was Owen quality (which btw was what all the local press brigade were telling us last year), then fitting another kid in wouldn't be an issue, because he'd be playing and playing like a senior pro. But he's clearly just a project, a kid who can finish, but has little else to his game. I agree we don't have time for another project.

We’ll see what quality Brewster has this next season. If he steps up and proves to be as good as he can be then we can buy him back and either play him or sell him at a quick profit. We’ve taken his safety net away from him by making it a permanent move with a caveat. It’s all on him.

Might be total bollocks but this guy is usually on it could be a good day if it happens ; Liverpool have agreed the fee of £30m +£10m add ons for Ismaila Sarr with personal terms already agreed. If we can get that one over the line it could be a good window for us.

I think a lot of us said at the start, a brilliant window for us would be a backup LB, an attacker and Thiago (in that order of importance IMO).
 

2/3 done, which is absolutely brilliant. 
 

Patson Daka and #20 / #7 here we come.
 

With Brewster gone to cover Thiago (which was unexpected), I hope we can shift Grujic Wilson Karius Shaq and co to pay for the attacker. There’s at least 40m between them, right?

I’m really not into Sarr. If it’s him or no one, fair enough and I’ll hope to be proven wrong, but I’m praying we go for Daka. If we want somebody more raw, id still prefer Doku.
