Guarantee that's what's going to come in for Origi. Loan with option to buy. We'll reject it because we can't replace him in time and instead keep him so he can not get picked for any game ever.

I’d replace Origi with Doris the canteen lady.

It does seem weird that Nat is still here.  He's obviously down to 5th choice and there were lots of rumours of interest at the start of the summer.

Maybe we've been waiting to the end of the window to sell him, so we don't have time to spend the money.

 

Matip has played 3 games in a row, Nat will be 4th choice soon enough. Then just has to wait for Gomez to get injured again, Konate's injury record prior to signing for us is pretty rough as well. 

 

Nat and Virg first choice defensive pairing by Christmas.

This is the guy who was stalking Matip outside The Spire. I can’t recall if he called Matip right, but this is his latest tweet.

I don't see that at all and I'm surprised people do. We had our eyes on 2 CB, both played for Leipzig. They were unlikely to sell in January without a ridiculous offer, and once we drew them in the Champions League any chance of a deal was done. 

 

Yes they probably could have moved quicker for a player on loan but they were never likely to just go and buy option C in desperation. 

Honestly, we've supposedly built the most sophisticated scouting network and analytics team in the world. There's barely a player from about 8 years old in the world we didn't know about. With all of this information, all of this knowledge, we could only find 2 chaps who were both playing at the same club at a time we didn't have 1 fit centre back? Fuck me, if that's all we can manage, we need to be questioning what the fuck we're doing. In recent years with all our knowledge, this same side has provided us keita (shite), we chased Werner for I don't know how long till we decided we were skint (who's been shite too), a player from the same group in minamino who's been shite and then we can only find these 2 centre backs. Are we really casting our nets wide enough if this is all we can find?

I feel sorry for Phillips. His contribution should have earned him a good move and a good club. I wonder if the flops we've had leaving for decent money is now starting to backfire a little and clubs are starting to realise without a bit of klopp magic dust, these fringe players are not so good. We need Eddie Howe to get a club.

I think we were looking at £15 million for him, however teams know that he is our 5th choice defender and that despite a brilliant finish to last season, he still doesn't have a lot of first team football under his belt. It feels like all these stories about us needing to sell before we buy have started to backfire on us. 

Don't be silly. Are you suggesting all of these clubs aren't buying into our relentless decade long moaning about how skint we are when we still manage 500m in a pandemic season? But we're the cleverest people in the world. Nobody can outfox us. I read it in the echo.

I’d take Ollie Watkins right now seriously.

Really. Why? He's shite, he'd get no closer to this team than origi.

Loads of bullshit from this fella. Iirc that matip photo he claimed he took wasn't even from the day matip went the spire.

He’s not elite but he’s far from shite. He’s a presence in the box, a hard worker as well. He’s only 25 so plenty of scope for improvement.

I really like Watkins but don't know if he's good enough for us, however would be a better option than Origi for sure.

Has his name come up for any particular reason?

Origi was alright when Klopp was playing him up front. It was only when he was subbing him on in the 87th minutes as a left winger that fucked him.

So not too different to origi then? I would see Watkins as a signing for the sake of it to be honest. We need someone who's going to put pressure on mane and/or firmino. Someone who can come in and play and not be 5th choice, which Watkins very much would be.

The main pressure Bobby should be getting is four laceholes of Jurgen's trainies up his arse.

Yup. Was probably signed two weeks back and kept for this special day.

Stop trying to upstage Paulie's sensational scoop.
