To be fair, you were saying the same last summer and we got Jota and Thiago in. I know how it worked out transfers wise, and you're bang on the money about how they operate.

 

The sample size on that is more than big enough, now.

 

But there will be ways to sign players this summer. It just won't be without deals the other way to finance them.

But we got those two in by sacrificing players who we've previously been told were sacred and the future. Thiago came in because we got his fee off sheff United for brewster. Jota came in because we've taken the 1st installment off hoever and the 2nd will likely be paid by whatever tribunal fee we get for Wilson. I've never doubted their capacity to sell to buy. They've done it since their very 1st window at the club. They now need to take some of those millions they've been telling us they were so brilliant at making and invest where klopp wants it. If that means the club needs to increase its rolling credit facility, I'm alright with that, because I'll back klopp to have the talent to make sure the club keeps smashing it. Aside from the hedgefunds, the Tory's mates and fucking amazon, just about everyone else will come out of this pandemic with more debt than they went in. It's completely fucking all business and it's ok if we need to borrow to ensure we've still got a top side at the end of it.

The player is a centre back from Brugge called Koussounou. A 20 year old from the Ivory coast.

Only clip of his I could find.

Good news! The Echo are saying "Mbappe Exit Hint"

 

It's only a matter of time...

There's actually some people who believe that and the Haaland bullshit.

Haaland is a possibility but Mbappe is pie in the sky stuff.

 

Not that he wouldn't be interested because he would but more because not a chance we sign him and pay him about 500 or 600k a week. Even if Nike funded half of it, FSG would know it fucks up their wage structure forever.

 

I love Mbappe but would rather we signed 2 or 3 world class or potentially world class players over the next 18 months  and 1 or 2 guys with potential like Tsimikas. We haven't benefitted from the last window really because of injuries but Thiago, Jota and Tsimikas is the kind of window or two I mean. Right now, it's hard to feel it but the team is still outstanding with several players who are arguably the best in the world, so not major surgery required.

 

We really need to get the age range down with a few players about 23 or 24 though. Funny thing is Jurgen will probably sign a lad from the continent for ten million that will be a sixty million player in a year or two. With him at the helm, I have bo doubt that regardless what happens this season, we will be bang right back at it next year.

We are selling him before we buy him ?

Its a bold strategy, Cotton, let's see if it pays of for them.

In view of Klopp’s comments we can safely close this one off early.

I still think there's a chance someone will come in if we can sell origi. It's just a question of who'd sign him when he barely gets a minute and when he does, misses a chance like he did on Thursday. A team desperate for goals probably look elsewhere.

The only way Mbappe ever signs for us if it’s funded by Nike and his agent see’s it as a nice way to pocket £50m or £60m in fee’s before moving him on again to Barce or Real. No way do the club allow that, It’s just never going to happen. Haaland, whilst more realistic won’t happen because the queue of people willing to pay him 300k or £400k a week will be too long to make our “but this is Liverpool...” argument persuasive.

 

Heard links to Traore of super fast no end product fame doing the rounds. Do we maybe see the sale of Salah as being a swap for Traore and a forward? If we signed a goal scoring forward maybe Klopp see’s Traore as less of a punt. Jota, Mane, Firmino, Traore and a centre forward in the Haaland/Lewandowski mould but one most of us bar Stacksy and Code have never heard of. We were after Werner after all and if Bobby can’t be arsed scoring we might see sense in pulling him deeper. Hendo, Thiago and Bobby playing behind Mane, Jota and a CF is a bit different but bold enough for Klopp to like it. Fuck knows, I’m pretty sure I’ve just made the Ardja argument after laughing at it for about two years.

I'm going to predict summer transfer window thread going the same way as this one. The club will say Gomez and VVD will be like new signings when they come back next season, we won't need to sign cover and we can save Millions. 

 

Cunts.

Adama Traore is shite.

I think so too and he’s certainly not young enough to see as a good punt but Kloppo seems to love him. I’d be surprised if Big Mike see’s the value in him at whatever extortionate fee Wolves will want.

We won't get rid of the injury prone players either as no one will be stupid enough to take them. We will be stuck with Shaqiri, Matip, Chamberlain and Keita who will be unavailable for long periods of the season. 

 

Wilson, Nat Phillips, Awoniyi, Grujic, Woodburn will be sold to cover Covid and Origi will still be here because no one will pay money for him. 

 

But according to The Echo we are in for Mbappe.

The Guardian have a transfer section that shows only Arsenal have bought anyone, some lad for a half a million from Herta Berlin and they released Ozil, Sokratis and the young French lad to do that. Something is going on, is the bubble about to burst? Are Sky or BT or bigger European broadcasters fucked? Loads of teams are desperate for players and loads must be desperate to get rid of them yet nothing is happening anywhere. If we gave Ox, Keita or Origi away for free we would struggle to find a taker willing to match their wages.

 

Taking ourselves as example we have our front 3 on roughly 200k per week, with Madrid and Barcelona fucked the market for them now consists of 3 English rivals and PSG if we wanted to sell them. FSG are a million things but stupid isn't one of them, if a 20m investment guaranteed champions league football they would do it so why aren't they?

 

I watched the big short last week, this all has a feel of that about it.

Any one of these would be better than our current options of playing CMs at CB or underdeveloped / not up to standard young players.
