    Curtis Jones

    I don't know how many assists he gets technically speaking but to play a major part in all five goals away from home in the CL is remarkable.

    Worst Liverpool Transfer - You’re All Wrong

    I said Diouf but I'm not sure Anelka was the answer either. Look at his record after leaving us. Had his moments but hardly stellar.

    Worst Liverpool Transfer - You’re All Wrong

    Diouf. Big money, we signed him at a time when we needed that bit extra to kick on and we went backwards. Jean Michel Ferri was an excellent signing. For £1.5m Houllier got an excellent mole in the squad who told him all the players to kick out.

    Surely there will be the possibility of a lot of players out of contract in the next year or two as the covid debts start to bite? Our owners won't borrow money the way others have. Generally speaking that's a principle I agree with and we are getting the new stand at the Anfield Road. I get the frustration with United signing Varane, Sancho and Ronaldo but they'll have to deal with those debts in due course.

    I'm not sure either Moreno or Luis Alberto were such bad signings. The latter we signed young and has gone on to have a very good career. Moreno wasn't great but far from terrible and people forget that Robbo didn't immediately displace him from the side.

    Not detecting bitterness from Pep. I think Ox in midfield might be okay so long as you have two of Fabinho Henderson and Thiago alongside him. I don't think him and Keita work well together.

    With his expertise in PEDs wouldn't Klopp be the ideal coach for Ronaldo to work with at this stage of his career?

    What would Adam Hlozek cost? If Klopp doesn't fancy Jota through the middle he looks the perfect long term replacement for Bobby and can play across the front 3

    Given the injury history of our midfielders if we aren't going to sign one I think we should definitely sign another forward* and consider going 4-2-3-1 at times. *Even if it means a loan for Origi rather than a sale. I just don't see what he offers us.

    Ox and Keita have big wages for players who are 5th/6th choice. Of course no-one else is going to pay those wages.
  11. I think you could also argue that it was Di Steffano who invented the no.10

    True but everyone thought the Carroll fee was inflated - for reasons we could bore on about. There's also no reason for foreign clubs to pay the English tax. I'd have thought there'd be better value in the current market but maybe Abraham hasn't been managed properly.

    That's £6m I didn't see coming. Someone needs to come in for Luis Alberto now. What about Danny Ward? He did really well at the Euros. Ward is a strange one. He has been sitting on the bench for years.

    As I said yesterday for £20m Danjuma looks an interesting wild card.

    Tidy little player, good touch, good left foot, wins the ball back and might suit a mid table premier league team. I can't see him helping us much against the park the bus sides at Anfield. Only logic to it is the home grown quota. But if we were that worried about it why did we give Adrian an extension? I'd also probably keep Ox over Keita than spend £35m on Bowen.

    Yeah but that's got nothing to do with football.

    Expected some premier league interest in Davies.

    Being linked with Arnaut Danjuma from Bournemouth. I quite like his highlights reel.

    I get the frustration when other clubs don't seem to be taking finances seriously. How much money have they all lost during the pandemic?

    Loan Watch - 2021/22

    He'd be useful in an injury crisis. I'd only loan him if we don't sell both Davies and Phillips

    I really like Locatelli. £34m seems very reasonable and he won't be on massive wages already.

    One thing that hasn't been mentioned is the number of midfielders. If one comes in (Niguez?) that means we will have 8 in total. Hendo, Fabinho, Thiago, Milner, Jones, Ox, Keita and X. 7 of them on big wages. Surely Ox or Keita would be off? Now I know Ox has been playing in the front 3. So if we bring a forward in you have Firmino, Mane, Salah, Jota, X, Minamino, Ox, Elliott *. So again it seems high on numbers. Perhaps Minamino would be off? I certainly think him, Ox and Keita aren't all likely to stay. *Assuming Shaq and Origi are out the door.

    We could really do with some transfers involving players we have sell on clauses with - Luis Alberto, Ryan Kent, Danny Ward, Danny Ings. I've given up on us getting the final £17m for Coutinho.
