We’ve signed 23 players since Klopp arrived, and his transfer business has been as close to perfection as it’s possible to get. I’ve picked out the eight I’d suggest have been the biggest successes and wonder who everyone thinks has been the very best, taking into account their fee and the effect they’ve had on the team. Every one of these lads would fetch mega bucks if we sold them.

depends on how you judge his best signing.

 

Is it value for money, or what they've added to the team.

 

In my opinion Alisson. Mainly because even with Mane, Salah and Van Dijk in the team, we where still beatable, we where still shipping goals.

 

But once the Alisson came in, and Klopp admitted his mistake with Karius then we've lookednearly unbeatable.

I’ve gone for Mo. For the money paid he’s been outrageously good for us. I know he can be a bit greedy at times and he occasionally frustrates me, but his performances since he joined us have been mostly incredible, and teams have had to change the way they play against us such is his threat.

Our best signing of all of course is Jurgen himself.

This but I went for Robbo. he will likely go down as our greatest LB in history and will be one of the top 5 of all time ever if he keeps it up.

He better switch sides quickly then!

Van Dijk. We arguably have better individual players, but he has inarguably had the most transformative effect. Our defence was absolutely ruinous for nigh on a decade (and that included early-Klopp era); within literally weeks of his arrival it became steady & now its arguably the best defence in Premier League history (05 Chelsea & 08/09 United being the contenders).

Yep.

For me

Van Dijk as he changed the whole demeanor of the side, gave us the swagger.

Robbo - ridiculous that a 6m fella from a relegated side could become the best LB in the league in just a couple years,

You have to forgive Stig -- used line up his sides in the drafts with the Goalkeeper playing upfront

I've won more drafts than you..... But yeah I like to shake things up a bit. I once made your mum shower before I made her do the dishes.

I think Virgil edges it because of the way Jurgen refused to panic and just waited for his man. Huge cohones.

I find it almost impossible to split Salah, Van Dijk and Alisson, but I’m going for the one who got here first. I think it’s fair to say that Salah’s arrival was met with cautious optimism rather than the expectation that he would become one of the greatest forwards in Liverpool’s history, so the speed with which he transformed our attack was, for me, the first sign that some extraordinary was brewing under Klopp’s management.

I had a feeling that Virgil would win this, but his fee was eye watering at the time and I’ll admit I thought “what the fuck” when I realised we were willing to pay it. Worth every single penny of it though, he’s just imperious.
 

Incidentally the poll should have said “Sadio at £35m” but even at that price he was a bargain.

That was a much harder decision than I thought it wild be from that list. 

 

Virtually all, with the exception of Matip for me, deserve their own recognition for what they have contributed to the team, but Alisson just edges VVD for me. Virgil is the best defender we've had in years and is he wins a couple of league titles, will be the greatest we've had, but if they manage to get part Virgil they then have to beat the best goalkeeper in the world. 

 

Without him today we would've been a couple down at half time. Who knows if we would've gone on to win the game but thankfully that didn't happen and the rest of the team stepped up their hands and finished them off. 

 

He learnt very quickly that he won't get much time on the ball after the Icheanacho goal and he creates so many goal scoring opportunities from his quick distributing and accurate passing 

 

Plus he has an amazing beard!

    • Coronavirus: Premier League plan to restart season branded unworkable as clubs eye solution   Plans to put players under lockdown for a month to get the season finished have been branded unworkable – because clubs are too picky. The hotel quarantine plan is one idea mooted for Friday's next round of talks between the Premier League, EFL, Football Association and the Professional Footballers’ Association.     In a bid to conclude the season, one proposal is to squeeze remaining games into a condensed time frame in June, behind-closed-doors, with players kept in isolation to protect them from the risk of contracting coronavirus. Stadiums, hotels and training facilities would undergo a “deep clean”, with the players under strict quarantine, to enable the season to be completed by mid-July.   But Christian Machowski, whose company ESEM specialises in travel management for top clubs across Europe, believes the plan is unrealistic, because of the particular demands of the elite teams when it comes to hotels and training facilities.   “There are so many factors that come into play," said Machowski. “When clubs are looking to book hotels, one of the chief issues is what is an acceptable time to drive to a stadium? "Teams don't want to be stuck on a bus for 45 minutes to an hour, travelling to a game. “Everybody wants the best for their team, but there's only a small number of elite hotels that are suitable. “For example, there are two or three hotels in London where all the teams tend to stay when they play there. “To find a venue where 20 teams can find facilities up to the required standard is just not workable."   “In terms of training facilities, teams would also want to be as a close as possible, so that would present problems. “Then you would have to quarantine the same hotel staff for three or four weeks. “And if one team picked up an infection, whether it's a player or member of staff, that's the end of the tournament.   “It's not about teams staying in luxury, it's complicated because the infrastructure is so finely tuned for clubs in terms of what they need.”   Brighton have voiced their opposition to the proposal for a single-city Premier League finale. Officials at the club have major reservations due to concerns over hotel accommodation, the number of pitches required and the intense fixture schedule.   Chief executive Paul Barber also has concerns about even discussing a return to football while the coronavirus casualty rate around the country soars. “As creative as we want to be, people are losing their lives,” said Barber. “This is a serious, serious situation. We're totally driven towards completing the season but, at the moment, it is tough to talk about it.”   Machowski, whose company has handled almost 500 European games and training camps for top clubs over the past 24 years, reckons the number of teams involved also makes the plan impossible to pull off.   “You could maybe get away with it in the Champions League, for example, with a mini-tournament, because you're dealing with fewer teams,” said Machowski.   “But here you're talking about 20 teams and there's so much at stake. It's not like a pre-season tournament where there's a trophy at the end. “This is about titles, about relegation, qualification for the Champions League and Europa League, so no-one should be able to complain that they missed out because maybe the hotel, training facilities, travel or food wasn't right. “So it's not really workable, for so many different reasons.”   https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/coronavirus-premier-league-plan-restart-21789901
    • I think this could be an interesting summer for fees. I don't think Seville would pay that, but I suspect there may be less money kicking around in the game because of the virus and I reckon there'll be some clubs in distress and needing to sell, so there'll be a few bargains about. I know there's a lot of money kicking round in the game, but so many clubs carry debt and that can be ok when cashflow is good, but even if all sponsorship and TV money come through, there'll be loads of fare receipts lost and a likely late start to next season, so another delay in cash coming in. 
    • I get it (I think!). I think sky and the PL probably row all the time. I think the PL won't have been even a little surprised sky want to play it. It may sour the relationship, but to me it would show some immaturity from the PL if it did. I think people are used to taking opposite points of view in business and when it's done, you just have to move forward. There's nothing to be gained by looking back. And as I say, if there is any doubt in any of the boards at PL clubs that sky are right here, it's the fact it's not just sky, it's all the sponsors. I reckon once they acknowledge they have to play the games (which I think they already have), their only focus will be getting 19/20 done so they can start 20/21 and get the next tranche of TV and sponsorship money. They know they're not in control of when fans come through the gates, so the closest thing they can control is finding a way to get games on TV and get the cash rolling.
