Thiago Alcantara

Thiago Alcantara thread and here you are unloading about FSG.  It says more about you than it does about them. 

I don't think it's me that needs the lie down.  Whatever stress I feel isn't exacerbated by who owns the football club I support.

But you won't find me posting this again.  And again.  And again.  And so on.

 

If you reply to my post expect a reply. There is a connection no?

There's continuity, but connection ?  Maybe to you, not to me.

This is the worse transfer saga of all time. Worse even than van Dijk because that one we got an explanation for the delay. Having to read the daily updates on this one is like pulling teeth.

Day 251 of Thiago talks

 

Liverpool "hello"

 

Bayern "hello"

 

Liverpool "we are interested in Thiago"

 

Bayern "yes, we know"

 

Liverpool "ok we will come back in a couple of days"

 

Various German journalists "Liverpool are still interested in Thiago, talks are ongoing"

The plan is to make us so sick of this saga we don't care either way we just want it to end.

The same strategy the gubmint is employing with Covid.

Really?

 

I don't think we have really ever been linked in a concrete way....just a load of paper talk and none of it with any real substance so far.

This still really makes no sense to me. Signing that type of player at that age is not something Klopp would actively look to sign let alone whether the club sanction it.

The rumour first started after Bayern confirmed that he was leaving and specifically mentioned us as the team that were interested.

He's a worldclass player available for less than £30 million.

 

If you look at our current midfield options, both Henderson and Ox struggle with injuries, Milner is at the end of his career, Gini has less than 12 months on his contract, Jones is unproven and Keita still hasn't hit the heights yet, so that just leaves Fabinho.

 

If we can get Thiago, we'd mad to turn him down!

Exactly.

 

It's a non story really at present - been no confirmation of an offer, no terms agreed with player, no back and forth bids etc.

 

It's a rumour, nothing even near the 'saga' claimed.

 

Jamal Lewis was a bigger 'saga'

I don't particularly disagree with most of that but it just seems so out of character with the profile of player we generally go for.

It's pretty obvious he's to replace Gini. No way we're signing him and keeping Gini. We're already overstacked with midfield options. Whether they're the right combo in terms of creativity is another issue.

There's been "news" every day that we're going to sign him for the last 2 months +. And there have been no denials from Pearce, Joyce, etc...

It's because he's probably a direct replacement for Wijnaldum and he's someone with matching experience and pedigree.
