Wolves fans said Jota is a very streaky purple patch player and I think that's how he will turn out. Thats much better than a squad option who never has a purple patch or is never available. See how next season goes for him.

Southampton fans said the same about Mane.

 

And it won't be a hard task showing how dismissive 'those in the know' were of Salah's ability when he signed.

 

I think that the point people are making.

Thats also a similar type of opinion that a lot of people had myself included when we signed Salah and Mane.

Jota seems absolutely made for our high press and having the extra chances per match and dominating sides unlike what he had at Wolves will help him fill his boots next season.

Could be the case.

I think Liverpool bought Awoniyi for 400 grand from some Nigerian club or academy. He's been out on loan a few times and Union Berlin paid the club £1.5m for his last loan. Not a bad profit for someone who has never played for us. 

 

Grujics original transfer fee has been wiped out by the loan fees for his 3 season long loans and then the £10.5m transfer fee.

 

Same with Harry Wilson although I think he was from the academy.

Brighton absolutely love massive grock centre backs. They were playing one at left wing back last season. Nat fits the ball on the defensive side, not sure he passes the ball well enough for Potter, but he was certainly improving that part of his game last season, especially the short stuff.

 

Really hope we're the other team in for Camavinga. From what I've seen from youtube and Stacksy's posts he is everything we need in a midfielder.

I can't remember him having any disaster passes either though. And if Potter already has a load of players decent on the ball, logically Nat could continue playing it safe in that regard, but bring a significant aerial dominance to their back half.

Does anyone remember this?

Then you look at Mane's first season at Anfield:

Appearances: 29, Goals: 13

 

And Jota's first season for Liverpool:

Appearances: 30, Goals: 13

 

I'm more than happy for him to continue  copying Mane's trajectory!

I think Jota has a very high potential level he can get to...liked him at Wolves and shouted him up on here when he was there.

 

Whether he reaches that potential level or not and whether it is with us or not, only time will tell of course.

Yea, he holds his own on the Portugal side as well. Full of absolute cunts but some very skillful players.

With neither VVD or Gomez playing today, its a reminder that they many not be 100% by the start of the season and will need to be managed through the season. 

 

I would prefer it if we kept Nat Phillips until January at least, however it looks like we need to sell him to be able to buy another midfielder/forward.

 Sources claim Takumi Minamino is likely to remain at the club this season. 

 

Outlet: @Goal

Journalist: @neiljonesgoal

 

If this is true then this takes us to the maximum of 17 non home grown players for next season.  It means we will have to sell at least one of Shaqiri or Origi to bring in another player, unless they are 20 or under. 

 

I read that Southampton wanted to keep Minamino, maybe they will come back in for him if Ings moves on?

Allegedly talks are progressing with Lazio.

 

Bit of a shame, I like Shaq. At least he has quality, which is significantly more than the other two have shown. 
 

Sounds like with Grujic, that Nigerian lad, Wilson, Phillips & Shaq, we might be getting >£50m in sales in the next week or so.

Also considering how Matip played, maybe we should keep Phillips!

 

At least we got to see Ben Davies actually exists.

PSG are making some good signings. Their team is gonna look a lot different this season. Bastards.

Provided the Pogba thing goes through…

 

Neymar, Mbappe, Di Maria

Pogba, Verrati, Wijnaldum

 

Helluva front six and they’ve got quality on the bench as well.

 

Donnarumma in goal, that twat Ramos, Kimbembe, Marquinhos, Hakimi, Bernat.  
 

They’re gonna go all the way in the CL at some point. Could be their year.

So, to go Footy Manager for a minute, the state of play would appear to be:


Sold:

Grujic £10.5m

Awoniyi (imminent) £6.5m

Millar £1m

Grabbara £3m

Total: £21M

 

Actively looking to sell:

Wilson £10-12m

Shaqiri £10-15m

Karius £Packet of Skittles

Ojo £2m

Woodburn £1m

Origi £12-15m

 

Probably looking to sell but not too fussed:

Phillips £12-15m

Williams £10m

Davies £5m

 

Will almost certainly sell but only if we can get a decent offer:

Ox £20-25m

Keita £25m

Minamino £15-20m

 

Unlikely but outside chance:

Hendo - Can't even put a price on what we might ask for him if he went. Fuck knows.

 

Obviously could be out on some of those figures, especially when it comes to Ox, Keita and Minamino since we don't appear to have leaked potential prices to the press, but should be there or thereabouts. 

 

If we can add the ones we are actively looking to sell to the ones already sold then we're probably looking around £60m. Even if Shaqiri or Origi stay but we sell Phillips or Williams then you are probably looking around the same amount received for incomings.

 

That's potentially a lot of outgoings, and I  doubt it will work out that we will sell everyone we want to, but I hope we just cut the asking price and get rid of most of them. With the exception of Phillips all of those players offered fuck all last season. Getting shot of one of Ox, Keita or Taki would be nice and a decent boost to any transfer fund we may have.

 

Of course, we'd have a tiny squad if most of that did come off so at a minimum we'd need a new midfielder, forward and backup right back.

 

I am very bored in work.

People get to work at the end of July ?
