Summer 2021 transfer thread.

Recommended Posts

A midfielder and a versatile forward and i'd fancy us to really challenge for the title and the european cup.

 

Adding neither IMO puts us more in top 4 battle and hopeful of a good european run.

Pretty much what I feel we need too. Ox and naby are not really worth considering as part of the squad due to their lack of fitness limiting their availability. The less said about Origi the better. 
 

if we just got an attacker I’d feel a lot better about next season as it stands I think with a fair wind we could do well but that’s a big if.

 

on a side note has their been any links for Minamino to go? He’s a good player who would thrive in Europe so I’m surprised there aren’t a few in for him.

People say he hasn't done enough in a red shirt, but I'd suggest even the greatest players would struggle to contribute much from the bench.

There not on the bench though being great, and the fact that he scored 3 goals for Switzerland doesn't change the fact he has done practically fuck all apart from a few memorable contributions. The fact is that like Origi he is not fucking good enough.

Just looking at the pics from training today, do people not think lack of transfers is not all on FSG? (They have made a lot of mistakes and this isn't either a pro or anti FSG post)

As an opinion, maybe Klopp prefers a certain limit on his squad so as to lose that "togetherness".

Also maybe Klopp could have bought a CB in January but would rather gamble on not and get his first choice in the summer?

I don't think Klopp is the sort to be dictated to but what do I know!?

I guess what I'm saying is FSG says relax!

They forced Wijnaldum out of the club.

Some say aRdja’s gravest crimes were the hundreds of young male students he drugged and bummed in Manchester, but single-handledly running Gini out of the club tops the lot in my book.

Make sure we get the Grujic money before the Portuguese police start kicking Porto’s back doors in.

Hopefully someone will buy him because one thing is for certain he isn't going to do the business for us.

People have been questioning Klopp's squad policy, and loyalty to players, since day 1 - me included.

 

They questioned him the season we got to Kiev.

 

They questioned him the season we won #6

 

They questioned him the season we won #19

 

They questioned him last season, when we were still the best team in the league by a distance, even with our 2 main centre backs injured, until Matip got done.

 

This will never change, he'll continue not to give a fuck, and we'll continue to win trophies.

Yeah i think very few have questioned Klopp overall , bit of a false premise to suggest peoples doubt in FSG is due to a lack of faith in Klopp no matter where you stand on the ownership arguement. If anything people are worried Klopp isn't getting what he needs to make this an era and a platform for the longterm future rather than a genius of a manager and motivator rinsing every bit of talent for all their worth before he moves on in 2 years having only achieved half of what he was capable of and a fan base wondering how the fuck anybody else replicates what he can do in the future. 

 

I dont believe for a second Klopp doesn't want a couple more in I'd be shocked to the core if he thought he can rely on players we have who are constantly injured. Ox will probably remain a Liverpool player because weve totally taken our eye off the ball with homegrown talent rules. I don't know why Adrian was given an extension if we are struggling with that quota.

Fair enough, if that's how you see it.

 

I'd invite you to go and read every summer thread since he started as manager, and in particular, those before we won a trophy.

 

The only season we didn't win anything post Kiev, was last season - and this had very little to do with FSG.

 

Unless you're suggesting FSG wanted Fabinho as 4th choice centre back.

 

It's not as if we didn't have the money made available. We bought 2 players for 60 mil - one of whom got injured for 3 months in a dead rubber.

 

We also just bought a centre back for 40 mil without selling anyone, so the money was clearly there.

 

On a final note and on the bit on bold - who's that on?

Better sign Saul. I want this guy bad I don't even know who he is.


I hope our news on Saul is better than Bob Odenkirk’s Saul news.

assume he ran down his contract? We’ll still get a small fee and sell on (like we had to with ings and Elliot) so hopefully he does well and earns us some bucks later down the line.

"Allowing nomark players to leave on frees will make Liverpool millions"

Edwards gets a lot of praise and rightly so - some of the fees we’ve received from average players has been incredible.

Also signing some top players for decent fees.

Not sure if the buck stops with him or the owners but letting first team regulars like Emre Can and Gini run down their contracts doesn’t look smart to me. 
 

I’m also a bit concerned what our plans are with Salah he’s a couple of years left on his contract- it’s getting to the stage of us giving him better terms / start the process of trying to sell him or leave it run down like Gini contract. Going to be interesting to see what approach we take on that.

As he's moved abroad, we'll actually get a pittance of about 250 grand under UEFA rules, according to the Echo.

It's not just Salah, Its Mane, VVD, Fabinho, Henderson, Alisson that all have 2 years left.

 

With Can, I think the deal breaker was that he wanted a release clause and after Suarez we decided we wouldn't allow any of our players to have them.
