I’m not going to criticise him. I’m sure he’s not injured on purpose.

 

An absolutely brilliant footballer when fit, a desperate shame we’ve not seen him enough.

Never understood this way of thinking. He didn't sign himself. I get the impression he likes the club. He's clearly class and he's clearly injury prone. It just didn't work out. We gambled and lost. When he did get a run of games he was absolute quality.


Just think it’s for the best we all knew he was done after his last injury I wonder what would of happened if he wasn’t assaulted at the bitters

 It's a real shame - I'm gutted that we didn't get to see the best of him, though his contribution to the season we just missed out on the CL again should not be overlooked (but I'm sure it will be).  I remember him having to do the work of three midfielders while the other two gobshites phoned it in.  He's been a class act off the pitch too, mentoring many of the youngsters and the Spanish speakers who have joined us.

 

Some things just don't work out, but there were enough special moments to populate many a highlights reel, so I'll console myself with those.

Every time I see this thread I fear the worst.

 

Hardly a surprise he is off. 

 

A great player, who showed it in moments for us, but unfortunately not enough.

 

He has worked under the 2 best managers of his generation and I imagine he will go onto have a great managerial career himself.

I always go back to Shankly's attitude to sick notes, he had no time for them & neither do I.

 

Let's replace him with someone who can contribute & when they are playing, doesn't give unbelievably stupid free kicks away.

 

Lovely player to watch on the ball when he was on it but I won't miss him at all.

He was a great player but this went exactly as anyone who had paid attention to his career would expect. he struggle to stay fit playing in easy mode for Bayern, he was never going to stay fit over here. Shame, maybe worth the risk and had we won a the league and champions league the other year it would have been

So blame Klopp then. Klopp and the powers that be looked at Thiago and thought fee+salary was a risk worth taking. Gambles don't always pay off.

The recruitment team must be eyeing his exorbitant wages as a chance to get in two decent young players, perhaps a forward and defensive midfielder?

Guardiola, Ancelotti, Klopp, retirement.

Looks like he's gone already. At 200k per week, you'd think he'd hang around to be cheerleader or something.

Yeah something tells me he won’t be receiving a champions wall gift on the last day of the season

That is all well and good if true but IMO we shouldn't be paying him to do that.

 

If it was working on getting fit for us fair do's but not if this is true. Should be a terminated contract early by mutual consent job.

A lovely, stylish player that was injury prone before we paid 25m for him, was injured when we got him and was injured most of the time after we got him.

Looked good, did a few turns, appealed to the odd lunatic who has his favourites where style over substance matters, took about 8 games to get up to speed after an injury and then got injured again.

Will live in the memory of 99% of fans for about 6 months and a lifetime for those who adored him.

25m plus wages wasted. 

Bought as a replacement for Wijnaldum, ended as the new Fabio Auerelio.
