    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    We have a good group of players now with our front three on long term contracts. Everyone seems to be happy. “Mentality monsters” isn’t that the name Klopp’s given them? How would Bobby, Mo and Sadio feel if the one who didn’t want to commit himself returned only to earn twice as much as the other three? We can’t do that. We have a wage structure and must stick to it. If Coutinho was desperate to come back to us he’d have to accept a pay cut down to the level of his mate Bobby. He doesn’t seem to want that and prefers to keep his salary and go to Germany instead. Fair enough, it’s a business and I don’t blame him. But he can’t have it both ways.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    My memory isn’t that short. I remember when our financial model was completely absent. We had our best player Suarez on less than half the wages Downing was on. You can’t have that. As long as our financial model doesn’t stop us buying top dollar for players like VVD and Allison, I can live with Cou not returning on loan. Let’s just stick to the transfer model we’ve adapted, it’s not been a disaster so far has it?
  3. It's a toss up between Mane and Bobby. Mane beeing our best player and Bobby the smartest one.
  4. It’s when things like that happen you need your alpha leaders. No way Fergie would've let that happen. No way Klopp would've either. Reminds me of the Balotelli incident. He scored but should've been substituted immediately after. And the captain failing to stop him should’ve been stripped of his captaincy. With Rodgers nothing happened though. Ultimately his lack of leadership cost him the job and us a lot of points. There’s no captain to put the blame on for the mancs though as the daft pricks have made the culprit their captain himself. What a masterstroke!
  5. Spot on! If they'd sold Pogba I'm sure someone like Bruno Fernandes would've been his replacement. That could've made them a threat. Now they're stuck with their Balotelli light.

    However unlikely. There are so many reasons to wait until 16:55 we cannot rule out the possibility of a Cou return completely.
  7. Harry Maguire? 80M? Wonder what no. in our CD pecking order he’d be? Behind all 3, VVD, Gomez and Matip? De Light was their original target wasn’t it? Hopefully our agent inside Old T has now managed to use up their funds. so they’ll drop buying the one player I’d hate to see them get; Bruno Fernandes.

    Hall of Fame - Class of 2019

    Ray Kenendy would've been a good shout, no doubt. I'd still choose player of the season 79-80, TerryMac, before Ray, but that's just a matter of opinion I suppose. From the picks I've seen so far it's obvious I'm getting old. Some voters have obviously not seen the players in question live. Just as I can't really remember St John. I guess when the votes are counted for the class of 2039 you might see Henchoz getting more votes than Alonso ;-)

    Philippe Coutinho

    Exactly my point. We’ll not be able to come in with a last minute bid on Sep 2nd as PSG can.

    Philippe Coutinho

    Barcelona says: Coutinho will be sold, but only if the buyer meets our asking price 100-120M. If not we’ll keep him. That bluff is easy to call. Everyone knows they’re desperate to get rid, and every potential buyer therefore will patiently wait for the price to drop. We are one of possibly several buyers saying we’re slightly interested but only if the price is dropped significantly. That may well be a bluff also making Barca sit back and wait until their asking price is met. My guess is Coutinho will be sold late in the window, probably to PSG as we’ll not be allowed to buy him on Sep 2nd. Price? 80-90M is a fair guess. I reckon our limit will be around 70M

    Rank the trophies

    I don't really agree, but if winning it once is what it takes to make us not care the next 20 years, OK, let's win it. To me the tournament is a good place to give our young guns a good experience, so I'd prefer if we did that. Suspect FIFA demands us to field a strong team though.

    We have VVD, Gomez and Matip. Both Hoever and van der Berg look ready to do a job. Fabinho can also fill in if needed. Selling a 30 y.o. 4th choice CB makes perfectly sense all things considered.

    European Super Cup? A match between last season’s European champions and the 17th best team in Europe? What’s the point? You don’t see PGA promote a match between last year’s winner of the US Open against the best player who didn’t make the cut on Friday do you? It’s as interesting as a clash between the winners of the PL and the Championship. I do hope we field a reserve team for that one. I really don’t care if we win or lose it. Trophy? Don’t make me laugh. It’s rubbish. World Club Cup? One good team from Europe, one useful one from South America depending on whether their players have been sold to Europe yet or not, and some rubbish teams. If the European Super Cup is like a match between the winners of the PL and the Championship the World Club cup is like a tournament between the winners of the PL, the Championship, League 1 and League2. Call that a trophy? Laughs can be heard coming out of my butt. Charity Shield. I can live with that because it’s tradition and was instigated as a fund raiser for charity purposes. An OK way to get the season started. Trophy? Not in a million years. Don’t care about the “trophy” but would still like us to beat M City.

    Lyon (Friendly) 31/7/19

    We had 27 players in action tonight! Not one of them looked out of their dept. All the young guns were brilliant. Not so worried about squad dept anymore. Anyone shouting for new signings should first decide which one out of the 27 he wants to get rid of.
