How’s the lad at Juventus getting on? Looked shit hot during Ajax’s run to the semi’s and was briefly linked to us? Any chance he’s stagnated and just needs a Koop hug to kick on?

He's had a torrid time since leaving Ajax. Hardly played for Juve after some poor performances. Think he's currently out injured.

I don't want us to sign Upamacano if you dicks are going to start calling him Upa. It's not as bad as 'Cou' but it's in the same ball park. 

Can we call him Upermac or Meccano?

Also works as a rejig of best midfield on the world to make best defence in the world. We got Trent Alexander-Arnold, Robbo and Virgil, Upamecanoooo

Seen on BBC gossip that Bild are linking with Alaba who is apparently out of contract in Jan. Been playing a lot of CB, but also good long term replacement for Milner and potentially Gini.

His contract runs out next summer, doesn't it? Which would mean he can sign for a non-German team from January. He'd be a superb signing.

 

Where would he want to play though? Primarily as a midfielder but able to cover at the back?

That's what I'd assumed as well. Would be weird to be up in Jan, unless there was a short-term Covid extension.

 

I think he'd want assurance to play in midfield eventually, but he's always going to be played in a number of positions because everyone knows he can do it.

Now it's lunch if had another look guessing the BBC was a mistranslation. Transfermarkt has it as June as you'd expect

Why would Alaba expect to be played in midfield? He hasn't played there in years.

Wants to play there. Usually plays there for Austria. There's a thought that his ludicrous wage demands at Bayern are in part because he never gets to play there and he wants something in return as a result.

I saw him playing left back for them just a couple weeks ago.

Yeah, in the past midfield, now more left back. His versatility betrays him when it comes to playing the position he wants to play the most.

 

I think he's best at CB, he's unbelievable there.

Bayern wont want to give us another key player for fuck all. 

But like the Thiago situation, they are not in control - the player can sign with us in 8 weeks for free and they get nothing other than him playing for another 6 months. If they get a similar fee that would be good business for them.

True. I'd rather Upemacano but wouldn't cry at all if this fella came in January. 

 

For any signings this january we need them in from day 1. None of this deadline day Jim White cunting fax dildo waving "Awight Hawwy" bollocky wank.

Alaba makes a lot of sense given he's top class and can play in several different positions. With Gini, and maybe even Milner, heading out at the end of the season I'm concerned with the loss of a winning mentality and experience in the squad and Alaba would help with that. 

 

But isn't he asking for 300 - 400k a week at Bayern? I can't see him getting that here - that would make him the highest paid player at the club. 

 

Another name to consider is Samuel Umtiti at Barcelona. He's had injury issues (so should fit right in) but Barcelona want his wages off the books and he might be available for loan.

Agree with this but a 6 months loan would be a interesting idea, though i think Barcelona will want commitments to buy

Five centre backs on our list according to the Express: Ozan Kabak, Dayout Upamecano, Pau Torres, Jules Kounde and Mykola Matvienko.

 

The first two are familiar names. Does anyone know if the other three are any good?

    • Unable to do a job as good as Caramacs' but here you go using Heinze's video  
    • The outstanding start by Diogo Jota to his Liverpool career has been acknowledged with Michael Owen saying that the Portuguese star has been the best signing of the new Premier League season.   While Thiago was seen as the prize capture by the Reds during the Summer transfer window, it has been the 23 year-old former Wolves man who has made a seamless transition scoring nine goals in just 15 appearances in all competitions.   The quality performances of Jota have been worth their weight in gold when you consider the  amount of absentees Klopp has had to deal with through injury.   His rapid progress has caused Jurgen Klopp to shake up his front three with Roberto Firmino the man to miss out on a few occasions, a proposition that seemed highly unlikely just a few months ago.   That added depth to the front line has been seen by many as the final piece to the puzzle in Liverpool being the ultimate all-round team.   The performances of Jota have been worth their weight in gold when you consider the   amount of absentees Klopp has had to deal with.   Speaking on BT (via Metro) the former Reds striker said that consistent form of the forward has been a pleasant surprise.   “No one could’ve predicted that he would hit the ground running like he has.   “He’s surprised me with his pace, I must admit. I think he’s far quicker than I gave him credit for.    "Against Atalanta he was electric.   ‘He just shows composure, a lot of people panic, they just get a shot off as soon as they get any form of space. ‘I just think he’s scored headers, right foot, left foot, he’s scored everything so far and he’s looked the real deal in terms of linking play.   “Nobody could have envisaged the quality that he’s shown so far.”     Fellow former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch added that the ability of Jota to adapt his game has been clearly evident.   “Klopp’s obviously seen something in him, putting him more central or along the three of the strikers that they have. ‘He looks like a poacher.    “He’s getting goals in the six-yard box, he’s got headers, he’s got all types of goals.    “He’s a top, top signing."
