    Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

    How do you really know we didn't sign him because of money? We have pulled out of so many deals under klopp, same thing happened with Fekir. Where's he now? Nobody 100% knows what the fuck is going on. The whole world has been shut down for 3 months and all the information you have is from journalists who have been at home like the rest of us. Don't lose your shit over this because Klopp is the one who makes these players better, not the other way around. We, like every other club, are bleeding millions every week with no income coming in. The shops are fucking closed, the stadium is fucking closed and revenue is probably non existent right now. It might be next season too. So maybe, like every other business owner in the world they are being cautious. It's just the way it is right now. I didn't want Werner, i just don't see what other's see in him. Fairly quick but no skills, not that tall and hardly powerful. He struggles against a low block as was seen in the last world cup. Other's may disagree, fine. Sancho is the player we should get. Quicker, more skillful, already knows English football and Klopp would turn him into an absolute star over the next 5 years. Our style/attack NEEDS players to be able to dribble and beat a man with skill AND pace. I don't see that with Werner but with Sancho its obvious. Yes i really think we need to sign one more star attacker and will be gutted if we don't but i won't lose my shit because i own a business myself and i could be up shit creek soon too. The next year is really hard to judge for anybody who owns a business. Just take a breath, if Klopp really wanted him, we would have got him. Stop letting the media, who have had no stories to print for 3 months, fuel your every thought. It's almost always bullshit anyway.

    Said it before but I don't rate him. No real skill and I think he'd struggle against 90% of the teams that sit deep and park the bus against us. Fuck him. We better be signing someone though! I think Sancho is far more suited to us.
  3. The best thing about this is when the pubs finally do open they will be packed with Liverpool fans celebrating the league title. These other fuckers have been sitting in there houses for 4 months and the first thing they'll see is our happy faces, cant wait!
  4. Our season won't be voided, it might be cancelled though. Big difference, because we'll be awarded the title. Still fucking shit and absolutely gutting that we are going to be robbed of that moment now. But playing behind closed doors, we are denied it anyway? No parade either. What they don't realise is, if you start a new season in September and people still get the virus, they are fucked and could lose out on two seasons. Sport is life for so many people, not just football fans. With the world on it knees and the public having low morale after lockdown, give the fucking public something to look forward to and a boost. But no, let's start a new season. Make everybody feel flat again, zero competition. It's an absolutely stupid decision and doesn't take any of the current situation into account.
  5. We are going to win this league. Not even the world's most deadly virus ever, can stop us. Some team klopp's built this
  6. I think people need to calm down a bit. There is no way we aren't going to get our hands on this trophy. Either they are going to give it to us or they will play the remaining games. I'd prefer to win it ourselves and have the joy of that moment though, in a stadium with our fans there. Being robbed of that after all these years would piss me off. They could never void the season and say you're not champions though. We are too much of a global powerhouse. There would be a shit storm worldwide and i doubt they'd want the headache. Remember what happened when we won the champions league and finished 5th? Everybody went mental and Uefa had to bow down. The premier league wouldn't damage their own brand with one of the biggest clubs in the world who are 25 points clear at the top of the table. We are going to see Henderson lift that trophy one way or another, I'm 100% sure of it.

    Naby Keita

    He's too slow and not powerful enough for this league. It's that simple. If you're going to be that small you have to be quick in the premier league or at least strong. He's neither. He knows it too and it forces him to take up positions where he doesn't get exposed, much to the detriment of the team. He should have been hooked at half time. His lack of effort or inability to sprint back for their 2nd goal was shocking.

    Our front three

    Werner is 5ft 9 and Sancho is 6ft. Plus i think Sancho will fill out more and get stronger as he gets older. Werner is going to be 24 next month, I'm not sure how much more his body is going to develop now. He looks slight in frame to me. Shorter players have to have unbelievable talent to make it in the premiership. Hazard, Salah, Mane and even Sterling showed their talent from a very young age. I'm genuinely asking if Werner has that level of talent to play in attack for the best team in the world? I admit i don't watch him every week but i definitely watched him in the last world cup and he really struggled. He was quite poor against a deep lying defence, which we face most weeks in the Premiership. I'm happy to be proven wrong but does he show star qualities and do things on the ball that make you sit up and notice him? I don't think he does. Salah at Basel did, Chelsea he got Mourinho'd and then at Roma he looked good again. He's also quick as fuck and strong as an ox. Mane, super quick, constantly beating players with dribbles and showed at Southampton that he produced moments that made you sit up and notice his ability. Show me where Werner does this? (btw its a genuine question, im happy to be proven wrong on this but i just haven't seen it personally) Sancho definitely does this. He's even had moments in an England shirt where you think wow, this kid is super talented. I'm not saying he is the best player ever, but he has all the ability and star quality and we have the manager to nurture it. Exactly. I watched an interview with Melissa Ready where she said we are happy to spend big on "transformers" meaning players who will instantly make us better in any given position. Like Alisson and Van Dijk. Will Sancho make us better? I'm not sure but he definitely won't be a step down on what we already have and we are going to have to rebuild that front 3 soon. We have Jones, who i think is a quality player and has a great chance at making it here. Add Sancho to the other wide forward position now and in 2 years time we have already gone a massive way to re-building that front line. With Elliot getting better and better too. I just think if we don't sign Sancho now and let him go somewhere else it will be a mistake, we are in our strongest position for 30 years and can pretty much get our pick of the best young players in the world. These players don't come around very often and we have the best manager in the world at developing them. Barcelona had the best front 3 in the world a few years ago, now look at them. They let one go, and two have age'd, all of a sudden they are vulnerable and scratching around panicking and signing anybody to fix the issue.

    Our front three

    Following on from the discussion in the transfer thread, i thought i'd see what peoples opinions are on what we do next season with our front three? Afcon, olympics, Euro's, Copa America will all take it's toll on our squad/attackers next season i think. Mane will be 28, Salah 28, Firmino 29 and they would have played together for 3 seasons here. Speed players don't last as long as others and the drop off is usually faster. I think next year would be a great time to freshen up the attack and look towards our next re-build of sorts. Don't wait for the decline, change when your at the top. That cunt fergie was a master at it. Sell Salah and get Mbappe would be my choice but i don't think we'd smash our wage structure like that. Even if i do think he'd come and i reckon we can afford the fee. We kept our powder dry last summer and i think we have the money to go big in the summer. Talk is of Werner but, as i said in the transfer thread, is he really an elite level attacker? He isn't mane or Salah quick, he's fast but we need blistering speed for our system. It's what makes it work and the drop off in performance is noticeable when either of those two are out. They can beat players with skill/pace/dribbling. Is Werner anymore skillful than Oxlaide or Minamino? I don't think by much and i don't think he's any quicker either. Don't get me wrong, he's a good player but does he have the potential to be one of the best int he world? I'm not so sure. We've seen Kieta struggle with the strength and pace of the league at times and i think Minamino will find it hard too. Will Werner be the same, he looks quite small and slight in frame. That's why i think we should get Sancho. He's 19, great acceleration, skill, dribbling and has huge potential to get even better. He's also tall and will get only get stronger and knows English football. With City fucked, will he want to go there now? Chelsea just bought Ziyech and have Hudson Odoi & Pulisic. Spurs are shit, United are shit and he won't go to Leicester. We should be all over him and i hope we get him. There was a time 5 years ago when players like that would never choose Liverpool over some of those clubs, but not anymore. Klopp will be here for 4 more years and has a great track record with attackers. Sancho would only be 24 then. For me it's the perfect signing and makes the most sense. What is peoples opinion? Would you keep the front three together next year and add another good player like Werner to rotate in and out. Or would you try and add another potential superstar and really go for it and put pressure on each of them for their place?

    Werner or Sancho? Am i the only one who'd prefer Sancho? Werner doesn't look that great at anything. Decent pace, decent touch, decent finisher, decent passing, decent/good player. Sancho seems to have star qualities, exceptional touch, dribbling, speed. He's also taller and will only get stronger as he gets older and fills out. Plus he understands the league more and has played in England and it's his home. Why are we going for Werner?!

    Everton (H) FA Cup - 05/01/2020 - 16:01

    I'd rest almost all the players that played against Sheffield. Maybe only play Milner. We looked dead against Wolves in the last 20 minutes and I'm surprised how well we played yesterday. Fuck, it's our best chance in 30 years to win the league. Giving them players 9 days off up to the Spurs game could be the difference in us winning the league & champions league again and maybe even going invincible. Fuck the F.A cup, we can win it next year.
  15. He's been immense all season. Finally winning that big trophy in the summer has got that monkey off his back and he's really kicked on and gone up a level. He's been playing with swagger and like a Liverpool captain should. Many of us had our doubts but i couldn't be more happier for the guy, he deserves it. He's earned his plaudits through sheer hard work and determination. Those video's of him and his dad showed just how much pressure he was carrying and now that weights been lifted, he's proving what a good footballer he is. We're lucky to have him. He's an excellent role model, leader and the best player in the world at appealing for a throw in. For me, it's come full circle and i love seeing him lead the team out of the tunnel every week now. He's worked for his spot in our history and set an example for all the younger players in our academy to follow.
