He hasn't even played for us yet! Are you saying to sell him on the same day as signing him?

 

That's exactly what I'm saying. 

Didn't sleep last night because of this.

Never heard of him but if Klopp and his staff want him I’m sure he’ll be excellent. Also really needed cover for Robbo,

"Proper number 9"

Amazing.

 

Tell Salah to get some chalk on his boots, go to the byline and cross it to the big man. Big beefy header from the proper number 9, Bob's your uncle, meat and gravy for dinner, thank you very much.

We need to get Mo in a "big man, little man" front two.

 

Trent spraying diagonals onto the proper number 9's noggin and Salah running onto the flick on's >>>>>

Win one league title and some fans think we’re too good for Aguero or Lewandowski. Can’t be arsed. Football is definitely going a bit too ‘hip’ for my liking.

Yip good engine and left footed . Kinda hoping the HG thing (and how we have not addressed with Lewis) pushes us towards White for the CB vacancy. If that’s the case he could be our big outlay for this window meaning the #9 will not be addressed. Thiago is a no brainier but I don’t believe the rumours that we are his only suitors.

We've got that young CB who kept quiet that world class centre forward who 'ran past VVD' once in his dreams.

Aguero's not good enough in the air to be a proper number 9, mate.

Yeah I’d take Lewandowski before him for that reason.

Mate you’re just obsessed with numbers and starting positions on the telly lineup without thinking about roles in the team.


Salah and Mané are the strikers, Firmino is the number 10, and Trent and Robbo are the old fashioned wingers, whipping crosses in and getting assists.

No, I’m okay with Bobby to keep his place for now. It wasn’t his best season but I expect him to improve next year.

The attacker we need doesn’t need to be a number nine or a false nine or a 10, or a replica of Salah, Mane or Bobby. 
 

he needs to be a player that fits our style of play. One who is intelligent, can play with others, either running off them, or feeding them, can press and understand his role in the team.

 

ideally, he’d also be a terrific finisher, and lighting fast, but a decent combination of those attributes will leave us with a good player who adds to what we have. That’s what we need.

 

getting hung up on anything else is a fools errand. There’s only one Bobby, nobody else is quite like him, and so that means we can’t get a direct copy, so let’s find the best footballer we can that will compliment what we have and got our style of play.

I hate the over hyping of players especially mediocre ones because we are so desperate to see us sign somebody we blow smoke up their arse and elevate them way too much! that aside this lad Tsimikas is something special id be fucking shocked if he doesn't end his career with the most Ballon D'or wins ever.

Agree with your post mate. On Bobby, I think Griezmann could play like him, but he would not come anyway.

He’s one of those players I have an irrational dislike for and will never be convinced he’s not crap. A bit like Zlatan, or before him Inzaghi. Good, but crap.

Considering - monitoring - eyeing a swoop - in talks - lean.

 

Long way to go yet.

    • While I'd be happy for us to bin him I'd be happy for us bin AOC as well. It appears Wijnaldum is leaving, and Milner will too.   So we'd be left needing to sign at least two central midfielders next year.    I guess ideally Wijnaldum would end up signing a new deal so at least we'd be left with -   Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago, Wijnaldum and Jones.
    • Replay clearly showed it was onside because Gomez hadn’t held the line and had dropped back a yard. Bit let’s not mention that, eh?   People still not understanding that second choice keepers are second choice for a reason.
    • That would be a possible career ending muscle strain to Sturridge    Win next week and Atlanta can beat Ajax and suddenly it’s a 6 point gap so you’d like to think Jurgen can then shuffle the team around 
    • Liverpool got their European campaign off to a winning start with a professional 1-0 victory over Ajax at the Johan Cruyff arena on Wednesday evening.

      It has been a very difficult last few days for anyone closely associated with the club in the aftermath of losing defensive lynchpin Virgil Van Dijk for the season due to a incredibly reckless challenge by Jordan Pickford in the Merseyside Derby.

      The anger of Jurgen Klopp and Gini Wijnaldum was still clearly evident in the lead-up to this fixture, but as soon as they took to the pitch, the number one focus was claiming the three points.

      The winning goal came with a stroke of good fortune with Sadio Mane’s cross deflected by Argentine defender Nicolas Tagliafico into his own net ten minutes from the half time break.

      Speaking after the match per the Official site, the manager was honest in his assessment of the footballing quality on display, but thrilled with the end result.

      “This situation is pretty much the picture of the game, so it was not the most easy-on-the-eye performance from both teams, I would say. Both teams can play better football. 

      “But especially in this competition when you play away, a lot of difficulties, pretty much the medical department made the line-up and then you have to win the game – and that's what the boys did. I think that was deserved, even when we had to clear one ball from the line and when they hit the post. 

      “Of course they had their moments but apart from that, we were pretty dominant on a difficult pitch for both teams. I think everybody knows that Ajax is usually a brilliant football team but tonight it was really tricky, the passing was difficult, so you could see that. But we won the game and I'm completely fine."

      As well as the loss of Van Dijk, the Reds were dealt a further blow with Joel Matip ruled out meaning that the manager had to turn to Fabinho who once again filled in ably in the heart of the defence.

      The manager was delighted with performance of the versatile Brazilian who produced a brilliant goal line clearance to deny former Southampton star Dusan Tadic.  

      “Look, in our situation it helps. Of course, was there pressure on the situation? Yes, it’s clear for the two in the back there, 100 per cent. First game together. Fabinho can play the position, he likes playing it actually.

      “If I would have asked him to play right-back I don’t think he would enjoy it as much as he’s enjoying the centre-half position. In our situation in the moment we have to keep those boys fit and then they can of course help us a lot. I’m not surprised he [Fabinho] plays well in the position otherwise we would have thought about a different solution, even when that would have been properly tricky. 

      “I’m really pleased for tonight, pleased for him, yes it gave him confidence, for sure helped us. These situations [goalline clearances], Millie had last season one against Bournemouth, which was a massive one. That tonight was a massive one. And so he had not only because of this a big hand in this victory tonight.”

      Klopp had no reservations in taking off the front three just before the hour mark and felt that their replacements in Diogo Jota, Takumi Minamino and Xherdan Shaqiri all had a impact.

      “All three who came on are, first, in a really good shape, fresh in a tricky, difficult game on a difficult pitch. 

      “That helps a lot and you saw they helped a lot. Shaq won deflections, which is pretty special.Taki in both directions, incredible between the lines. And Diogo is a machine so he can punish opponents in one-on-one situations. We had these moments, we didn’t finish them off, unfortunately.”

      “But it’s completely fine, it was important for them. Now we started the group, now we have to concentrate on the league again and then Midtjylland is waiting after that.”
