    So: rumour mill says we're in for Aubameyang. I've seen a little of him and he's undoubtedly a class act, but that end of the pitch isn't so much of a problem as t'other. Happy if we can get him but Klopp needs to spend a similar amount on the defence and possibly a holding midfielder (of high quality).
    And is Coutinho still in danger of leaving for Barca?

    Aubameyang is a no go, imo, too expensive both in price in wages - if he goes anywhere (in the Prem), then it's probably Citeh.

    Coutinho to stay (for now), he won't get the playing time at Barcelona.

    Despite everything, I can see van Dyck transfer going through, albeit probably on deadline day.

    Salah looks like a GO! but for way too much money. That said I can see the £39-40 million mark being broken a couple of times during the summer.

    Not seen much of Salah but what I HAVE seen he's very quick, very left-footed, is a very calm finisher but his final ball/crossing leaves a fair bit to be desired.

    Salah is an ideal signing for Liverpool.
    Cannot see a big name striker coming up.

    Can't believe we fucked up the Van Dijk deal but still hoping it can be resolved come the end of the window. We also need a left back and defensive midfielder.

    It's all well and good buying pacy attacking players but our defence has been our major problem for about 4 years now like fuck sakes get it sorted. Salah is a good signing he has bags of pace and will work well with Mane in particular. However both play on the right so maybe Salah out to the left as he is left footed with Coutinho and Firmino in a central role and a sole striker up front would be ideal.

    On a side note I got tickets to the Man Utd game at Anfield in October first ever game against the scum can't wait

    He is very quick and direct , dribbles well but when he was at Chelsea his decision making was very poor. Hes matured a lot to be fair and he is a good signing ,if overpriced ,but you will be holding your hands up in exasperation as much as you will at his brilliance.

    So latest rumours?

    Keita £70m :hmm:
    Oxlade-Chamberlain £25m :hmm:

    Is Van Dijk dead now? I thought £50m was a bit rich but heard £70m being bandied about :facepalm:

    Aye don't think Van Dijk is going to happen now. The chairman said something about not releasing any of their players with the new manager coming in and what not. It would be a shame if we didn't get him he was one I was looking forward to see playing for us.

    £70 million for Keita? Even in this super inflated world of football transfers this is just ridiculous. The guy has got potential but for that amount of money you would want world class proven players and ideally players who have shown their worth in the Premier League. We'll probably end up shelving £50 million for him just hope he comes good otherwise it would be a massive waste of money.

    Not sure what Oxlaide Chamberlain is going to add to the mix we have Mane and Salah already and others who can play out wide? We need to sort our defence out and get a world class striker fs.

    This season we will win the league. Our owners are a sack of dog shit but Salah, Mane and Firmino are going to destroy defences. Yeah

    Sensible price? Where have you been for the last 30 years? I like Sakho. OK, sometimes in possession, he looks like he's overdone it on ket but he's a pretty solid defender.

    Klopp thinks he's a bellend so wants to get rid. £25-30 million (ridiculous) seems about right.

    Yeah I doubt it.
    I'm glad to be honest, it'll just be another Pogba situation, where you've got a decent player who is constantly being derided because of something completely out of his control.

    Looks like we've given up and will wait until next season when he has a release clause.

    The squad needs fattening up a lot. I predict a real burn out in the season. There's already injuries now. Wait until we are playing two intense games per week.

    Agree, We don't seem to be learning. Same cycle over and over.

    Qualify for champions league
    Following season do shit on all fronts because don't have the depth and quality to cope with amount of fixtures - finish outside top 4, win nothing
    Probably sack the manager at Christmas when still doing shit following season after selling best players (Coutinho, Firminio) still finish outside top 4.
    New manager spends a fortune, only competiting domestically and mount a title challenge, which either goes the wire or filters out, qualify for champions league.
    Repeat from start.

    American owners are shite. When they are not shooting elephants they are generally lowering standards. I hope FSG sell up and fuck off.
