    Summer 2022 Transfer Thread

    Be boss if Kloppo sticks Salah on the left wing and orders him to stay wide and put crosses in for Nunez unless he signs a new deal. "Oh you don't wanna sign? Enjoy being Dwight McNeil"

    Yeah he didn't have a glittering CV and I remember being far from convinced about him based purely on how long it took him to 'make it' and also because we put about 15 goals past him (while still only just squeaking through). Looking back now, if Alisson had been playing for us and not Roma in that tie, we'd have beaten them by a landslide.

    Mohamed Salah

    Wise words. When a band I hate makes a good song, I'm big enough to admit it. See Coldplay / Viva La Vida. UB40 and Madness do not have a Viva La Vida.

    He's not a false 9 who drops deep to link the play. I think that's what people mean by it. But Jota isn't either and he spent a fair bit of time at centre forward the last couple of years. So it wouldn't take a massive shift in style if Nunez came in, it would just be a bit of tweaking.

    Agreed. We usually sign players (forwards especially) between 22-25 in the £40m price bracket. I'm just saying, if they really think Nunez is the player to take us up another level they would push the boat out to get him as they did with Virg and Alisson. Also, Alisson didn't have THAT much experience (for his age) when we signed him as he was a late developer.

    Too late now. Where was this when it could have made a difference? Plus, UB40? Over my dead body. What next, fucking Madness?

    This is your fault. Could you not have written a better song for Mané than the Abba shit we have?

    Ha! Beat me to it. That'll teach me to scroll down to the bottom of the page before replying.

    Jesus was a really good striker. Then Guardiola decided to be a smart arse and play him wide, while playing the wide players as a striker. If he goes to Chelsea he'll be good. If he goes to Arsenal he's clearly just after a pay rise and he'll be the most Arsenal player in that squad. Great on his day but too often he'll be a shrinking violet when the going gets tough.

    Yeah we clearly can't but it's more about wages than anything else. There are very few players who are beyond our reach because of fee. We might choose not to pay it but we could if we really wanted to. We can't do anything about the wages though and nor should we. We can't get Salah to sign because we have a wage structure we don't want to shatter. So how the fuck are we expecting to compete for Haaland or Mbappe? Suggesting we can is crazy talk. And I'm fine with it, because you can't expect us to stay within the rules while paying the kind of money the oil cheats are paying.

    We paid close to that for Alisson and Van Dijk. If Klopp and the recruitment team think he's that good (and we don't know if they do yet) then I could see us going close to that amount if not matching it. Some would be incentive based I imagine. We'd have to sell Sadio and some fringe players to fund it, but we made close to £100m or something from the CL this season and we've not spent loads in recent seasons. In theory we could afford Nunez and a really good midfielder and that's probably all we need.
  13. That's it. The easy thing for them is to just say sorry and blame the French authorities. Take responsibility for their share of the debacle but shift most of the blame onto the French. There must be a reason they haven't done it as the likes of UEFA will always take the easiest option and pass the buck.

    The one to Jota against Palace. Fucking hell.

    Alisson Becker

    Peter Shilton is a shit, stupid, curly headed fuck. My Dad says Jennings is the best keeper he's ever seen. I always thought Southall was the best until Alisson changed my mind.

    Plus even if you were to win something with them, all you'd be doing is making the most repulsive cunts in the land happy. Lots of decent people would be happy too, but the worst people would be the ones who enjoyed it most.

    They've set a high bar with their content to be fair and I always look forward to anything they release, but yeah this was crap.

    Darwin Nunez - Thoughts?

    Probably should be in the amnesty thread but I think Andy Carroll was a massive talent and that we did see it in flashes. Problem was he was as unprofessional as it gets in the modern game. Lived his life like an 80s footballer when everyone else was looking after themselves. When he was fit though he could be unplayable. Scored an FA Cup semi final winner against the Blues and almost single handedly turned the final our way after being wrongly left out of the starting eleven. He was sensational in the league game with Chelsea few days after too. We should never have signed him, but not because of football reasons. He was exactly what Kenny wanted to play alongside Suarez. But everyone knew he was a pisshead and the rumour at the time was that the injury he had when he signed came as a result of falling off a barstool. If he'd looked after himself he could have been the Harry Kane of his time.

    Darwin Nunez - Thoughts?

    I always thought Cavani was shite until he joined United and I watched him more closely. He was much better than I ever gave him credit for, mostly because of his work rate and his clever movement. I felt the same way about Benzema too until I saw him play at Anfield and he was fucking boss. Zlatan however, was, is, and forever shall be fucking shite.

    Darwin Nunez - Thoughts?

    I know exactly what NV is saying to be fair. If we sign Nunez though that won't stop me from continually saying "remember you said he was worse than Andy Carroll" every time he scores.

    Darwin Nunez - Thoughts?

    He seemed to move around a lot and popped up all over the place. On the compilation of his performance at Anfield he was at left back at one point, chasing back to win the ball. Seems to have a really good work rate and isn't 'just' a number nine so that's why I could see it working if we adapt what we do a little. Ultimately though it comes down to what you said. Klopp and the staff know what they're doing so if they want him, great. If they think someone else is a better option, I'm sound with that too.
  24. And the top Tories said it was fine to boo. Until we booed the national anthem and their heads fell off.

    Darwin Nunez - Thoughts?

    I don't think we'd have to build the team around him as such, but we would need to tweak how we play if we're to get the best out of him as he wouldn't just slot in and do what Bobby did / does (delete as appropriate). That may have been the plan anyway though as Klopp and the staff do evolve the tactics every summer.
