    January 2021 Transfer Thread

    I fear we HAVE to buy him in the summer. I know all the journo's and ITK twats are saying option to buy, but lets be honest, they don't know fuck all about our deals. Like everyone is suggesting this deal makes no sense for Schalke, they paid £18 million for him in 2019. If we have to buy him and he's our long term solution for CB, then i'd be pretty underwhelmed. I think Upameancano is perfect for us, he has the right amount of composure/arrogance on the ball and he's quick & strong. Plus he's also used to playing a high line and defending 1v1 (i don't know much about Konate but other's seem to rate him on here) Let's see what the club announces when this deal for Kabak goes through, im praying its only for 6 months!

    Loan with an option to buy would be much better than obligation to buy. I can't see any problem with this and it's a good deal for us. If we have to buy him in the summer then it's really a 50/50 deal. This fucker is wild and would make Lovren look like Van Dijk. I hope we don't have to buy him and are keeping our powder dry for a top class centre back for next season.

    I think he'll be a lot like Lovren. He dives in a hell of a lot and wants to basically break every attacker in half with each tackle. Seems pretty rash. He is young though so maybe we can coach that out of him? He's a bruiser type defender, looks quick once he gets going but not that fast in the initial first 5 yards.

    I had to find my login details just to reply to this. Mate, sometimes, you need to think before you post. Put your phone down and relax. They are not taking the piss out of anybody, You think Klopp is some mug who would let them have him over for the last 5 years?! Watch the interviews, especially the recent ones, Klopp is amazed at the journalists questions, which read like a lot of your comments. The club knows they need a centre back, they have been looking constantly. You think they are all a bunch of idiots? Honest question? We are in a global financial crisis, they have been spending on players and staff wages for a year with no income. We must have lost a shit load of cash. They still spent 70 odd million in the summer. You want them to buy big right now? We will get our arse hole ripped for £70-80 milllion, we don't have that kind of money. Does any business right now? Maybe they've already done a deal for Upameacano in the summer and it's £40 million and that's why we are waiting. Who knows, neither you or me do...that's for certain. But the club and Klopp have done great up until now so i trust them to make a good decision and the right decision for the long term. As they have been. It would make more sense to just get a stop gap in now and then really address the position with some real quality for next year. Don't be so knee jerk over everything. Chill.

    Thiago Alcantara

    Yeah i agree. I love that he's up for the physical side and putting his foot in. Got a bit of a dirty in him and you need a bit of that! Tactical fouls too. He might get sent off eventually but fuck it, it's worth the risk. He has to make up for his lack of pace someway. On the ball and further forward he was really good last night. As soon as we took him off yesterday the defence and keeper couldn't get the ball into midfield and through to the forwards as easily. Boss player and will only get better in the next 2/3 years under Klopp.

    Man Utd (H) - Premier League -17/1/21 - 16:30

    Pussys, we will win this. Everyone thinks united have a chance, even their fans are very up beat. This game never goes on form. We're still a damn good side and have much better tactical manager. Plus Thiago. We win

    Neco Williams

    Don't want to be too harsh on the kid but i just don't think he is good enough or will ever be good enough to make it here. He was poor when we put him on against Leicester and poor again yesterday. In possession everything is all wrong. He receives the ball in such a way that he allows himself to be closed down so easily and then his only option is to hit it down the line, and even then more often then not that pass gets cut out. I think going forward we will need to buy a better back up cover for Trent next season. Milner was great at right back against Leicester but he can't go on forever.

    What i can't understand is the allowing of amateur sports to still take place?! Lockdown, don't go near people, wear masks, virus is spreading. Yet goals, powerleague and grass roots football teams are still playing every weekend. 22 random people, not from the same household, many untested are sweating, breathing, and all over each other for 90 minutes but no no that's not helping spread the virus. Meeting your friends in groups of 7 is definitely making it worse. The fucking logic this government applies is stupid. Just lock it down again properly, have they not learnt anything from the first time around. Complete idiots running this shit show.

    Timo Werner

    That's my point mate, I'm saying he would have "ONLY" been able to play in Firmino's position eventually because he just isnt good enough to play anywhere else, for us. I don't think he would have been good enough in that position either but he would have been here on a 4 year contract and where else could we play him? He was lorded as this versatile forward who could play anywhere across the front three, but at the highest level when your going for the champions league and the league every season? Not for me Clive

    Timo Werner

    I know its only two games in and it's a new league, new country bla bla bla but what are people's initial thoughts on him now? There was quite a lot of rage on here when we didn't get him and lots of people saying we missed out on a great player who was perfect for Liverpool. I was quite vocal on saying i really really didn't want him and nothings changed my mind so far. Jamie Redknapp said he looked absolutely class yesterday?! Carra and Ashley Cole were stunned into silence. What am i missing here. He can't beat a man and he has no trickery/skills. I just don't see how he would have been perfect to replace or supplement our front three. Fabinho had a great game yesterday, but he's pretty slow and not a first choice CB. Werner had him 1 v 1 three or four times and he didn't beat him once and didn't look like he had a clue how to beat him either. It was the same story against Brighton (personally i think he's always been like this in Leipzig and for Germany) When Moe & Sadio go to Afcon (or if either is a sold at some point) the player replacing them needs to be quick, skillful and a good dribbler. If we had Werner coming in to do their job we would have definitely lost something and instantly become easier to defend. I'm not saying he is shit and won't score goals, he will, but he definitely isn't the player to take us to another level when one of our front three needs replacing. We would have lost something by signing him and he would have only been able to play Bobby's position eventually because he isn't good enough for us out wide.

    Diogo Jota

    7 pages, two new signings, and not a single post from Beefstroganoff? Same guy spent the last three months slagging the club off, everyday. Hmmmm. Certain people on here lept to his defence when i called him out before. He's not a Liverpool fan. Agent Mil-ing, work complete.

    Thiago Alcantara

    I think if Fabinho is at CB and Thiago is ahead of him that would leave us seriously lacking pace through the spine of our team, especially with Bobby up front. Fabinho and Thiago next to each other, like you suggested, might work nicely but i'd say Thiago deep with the legs & energy of Henderson + Wijnaldum either side of him would be our best midfield three (on paper). Will be interesting to see how we use him. He'll shine against low block teams but i wonder how we will play him against high press teams or fast counter attack teams. I think we are going to see another progression in Klopps tactics here and that's just what we need this season. Wonderful signing and I'm really happy we have added another world class player to our squad.

    Other football - 2020/21

    Still don't see the fuss with Werner. I'm glad we didn't buy him. Zero trickery and can't beat a man. All the things we need to replace/supplement our front 3. He's a functional striker, good but not amazing. Sancho 2021, make it happen!
