Not sure Butch. If Mbappe runs his contract down, we could get him for relatively speaking fuck all given how good he is. They know that they could sell him on for a gigantic profit to say Real two or three years after buying him. Very possible we sell Sadio or Mo next year to fund the deal anyway. 

 

If Mbappe doesn't renew his contract, Real Madrid will move heaven and earth to get him next summer, and he has made it clear that it is his dream to play for them one day. Why would Real Madrid give us a huge profit on him when they could pick him up for free? 

 

I think the only way we would get him would be to move this summer. Ideally we could offer say Mane plus 30/40 million?

 

As I've said before though, we like the idea of signing Mbappe, because of the amount of clicks it generates and the perception that we could sign him makes us look like we are right back at the top level, but in reality it's not the type of signing I ever see us doing under this ownership model.

Mane plus 30-40m for Mbappe?

Sign Davies from Bayern, put him back on the wing.

 

They're wasting his talents at left back.

 

 

I'd pay a billion pounds for Phonzie.

If we’re definitely keeping Naby then we won’t need to replace Gini. Fabinho, Hendo, Thiago to start the bigger games and Jones, Keita, Ox, and Milner as rotation options. A centre forward is a more pressing need IMO

Keita and Ox will probably be injured for 70% of the season. Hendo injury record is getting concerning(only played over 30 league games twice in six seasons). 

Milner as much as he can do a job just isnt there anymore to play more than the odd game.

We’ve only got Robbo and the front 3 who can stay fit. We’re fucked if weve exhausted these.

 

 

Trents good and i honestly wouldn't put Virg in with the malingers,never injured until a short armed cretin clattered him

That is the same 'Naby' as the one who has played the full 90 mins for us 3 times in our last 76 league games and been unavailable for the vast majority of them?

 

Wijnaldum has been pretty much our only reliable midfielder for a while now and i just can't see who fills his shoes in terms of that availability and reliability, which relying on your rotating cast of permacrocks, an ageing Milner and the still with a lot to prove Jones will IMO cause us real problems and leave us struggling as soon as one of the hardly unbreakable Henderson or Fabinho go down - which they will....problems with the cover not being available and problems with it leading to chopping and changing and as a result struggling for fluency/consistency.

 

For my money we need to add in there.

Yeah, I think it's clear we're going to add at least one midfielder. Curtis can step up some in terms of the minutes he plays but you can't have an ever-present player like Gini leave without addressing the position at all.

 

It's looking a little bit like we could end up with one defender (Konate), one midfielder (Neuhaus?) and one forward (Daka?) at the end of the window. For me, if we can do that without selling anyone important, maybe just Origi, Shaqiri, Minamino, Grujic, and Wilson (and maybe one of Keita and Ox?), I'd be pretty satisfied.

 

Maybe a bit light at fullback depth (is Tsimikas alive?) but overall, that team at least competes for a title IMO barring another injury plague at one position.

Club have offered a new contract to Larouci as well. He should help with the HG quota as well as being a backup for LBs.

 

Club have refused to sell Tsimikas to Napoli (I think) so either they want him to stay and fight or are expecting a higher fee.

We’re not monitoring Neuhaus in the Euros. It’s nonsense. Why would we? International football won’t tell you how a player is on a week-to-week basis. We already know everything we need to know from Edwards running his last couple of seasons through his computer. If we’re waiting, it’s to shift deadwood so we can free up funds, or because we’re not really interested (at this point at least).

Mickey Edwards has checked the engine out and reckons it's sound. Klopp wants to respray with a view to selling on for a profit in a couple of years.

 

John Henry is happy to sanction what he sees as a low risk investment.

Im tired of having to repeat this and read posts like this, which are 100% correct.

 

Do we ever learn like? You could see these situations happening a mile off, and yet the same people defend the club and its decisions.

 

Keita is finished. Ox is finished. Shaqiri is finished. Gini has gone. Milner is on his last legs. The midfield needs a refresh big style. Pay the fucking money like I would expect a club of our stature to do. We've seen what happens when we do the bare minimum and its cost us over the years.

And just to add...im not talking about mbappe or Sancho, just the players Jurgen wants whether they are 10, 20 or 40 million and as many as he thinks he needs.

As far as Maestro's go that's a minter.

    • A fully fit Gomez is the best English Centreback there is. He's miles better than Maguire in every single aspect of the game other than heading it. His injuries mean its not really relevant because he can't stay fit long enough in a part of the team that needs consistency. Similar for Matip when fit Varane is going to have to be one hell of a player to be better than Matip when matip is fit but matip is never fit for long. United having 2 good centrebacks who stay fit and build a relationship is only good news for them. I haven't seen enough of Konate.  If you took their back four though and comparedvit to ours, we are way superior. Shaw v Robbo, Robbo pisses all over him same for Trent and Bissaka, outside of LFC Trent is so underrated its ridiculous, he's genuinely world class the "he can't defend" is horseshit when he was 19 yeah he had mistakes in him like teenage footballers do but he's a whole different level to every right back in this country and Southgate umming and ahhing over his selection made me realise even more that Southgate isn't a good manager though he seems to be a very lucky one.
    • Borussia Monchengladbach and Germany midfielder Florian Neuhaus, 24, remains a target for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, but the Reds will not be able to meet his price tag of around £34m. (Sport1 - in German). While both the Mancs are spending like drunk sailors (not referring to you of course Stig ), we can't afford 34 million?      
    • Great post, and very much my position. No real issue with FSG owning us, just wish they would let up a bit on the whole self sustaining thing and pitch a bit of their own obvious wealth into the transfer pot.
    • Trent Alexander-Arnold has expressed his delight in signing a new four-year deal.   The Liverpool right back put pen to paper on the new deal yesterday which will keep the boyhood Red at the club until 2025.   Speaking to the Official site, Trent spoke of his delight.   “I'm honoured to be given the opportunity and to be shown the trust in the club to be given an extension. So, it was a no-brainer for me. The state the club is in and where I'm at in my career is always a good option for me. To extend and make sure I'm here longer is always a good thing. I'm made up.    As someone who joined the Liverpool academy at the age of six, Alexander-Arnold said that the club has meant so much to him.   “I mean, it's the only club I've ever really known. So to be here for this amount of time and extending to be here for a longer amount of time is amazing for me and my family. It's a proud moment for me – it always is – signing a new contract here. To be given the trust, like I said before, by the club and the staff is an amazing feeling."   At just 22, the footballing resume of Alexander-Arnold is glittering on a individual and team level and one that most players would be delighted with for the entirity of their career.   Reflecting on what he has achieved to this point, the League and European Champion takes nothing for granted.   “I've achieved so many dreams and goals that I never actually thought I would. I live the dream every day really.   "Being able to represent the club and to be in and around names and players, and obviously managers and staff, that are world class every day is a privilege for me and I'm very fortunate to be in the position I am.”   Top clubs are meticulous in the planning for the next phase, and careful to not being caught out when the end of the cycle comes.   Speculation has begun over who may succeed Jordan Henderson as the next captain and despite being so young himself, Alexander-Arnold says that he is trying to impart some of his knowledge that he has learnt from his senior teammates onto the next generation.   “I've been around some amazing leaders. Hendo Millie and Virg were definitely up there as the three best that I've been in and around. I'm privileged to be able to pick up things and learn things from them. They're all different leaders in their own way – some lead by their actions and some by their words. But at the end of the day, leadership is leadership.   “I think I've been in and around the lads enough time now to not see myself as a young player. Someone who's a mature lad, capable of fulfilling those roles and being a captain without necessarily having the armband on your arm is something that I've always wanted to try to be.    “So just being a role model for the younger players, trying to keep them on the right path and being there for encouragement when they need that. Just mentoring, I'd say – kind of what like Hendo and Millie were doing to me when I was a bit younger. Then just kind of nurturing them into young men that are capable of achieving anything really.”     Reflecting on a difficult past season, Alexander-Arnold said that despite no silverware, securing Champions League football was seen as a worthy achievement.   However winning honours is their sole focus for the 2021/22 season.   “The previous seasons we were there with silverware and we were on top of the world – world champions, Premier League champions, we had everything under the belt.   "Then to be kind of brought back down to earth last season with a lot of road bumps in the way, speed bumps on the journey, we overcame them. It kind of felt like a little bit of an achievement to secure top four in the way that it was looking throughout the season at certain points.   “We have our sights set on trophies, that's our aim. It's no longer top four or doing well, Europe and things like that, getting to quarters and semis.   "We want to be in a title run coming into May, we want to be in the Champions League final, we want to be in the domestic cup finals. We want to go as far as we can. I think this season we'll be fighting on all fronts to win as many trophies as we can."
