    Enlighten me, how would that happen? All our defenders who didn't do that badly when played together, those 4, are going to be asked to play with one leg?

    This thread has become an embarassment.
    Mix between who would you buy and the unreliable transfer thread.

    I always wondered what it would look like if those two had a baby together.

    For those claiming £100m for Mbappe is lunacy, Barca's former president has revealed that Inter Milan once bid 150m euros to sign Lionel Messi... 11 years ago when he was 18 and had played about two-dozen first team games. They were so alarmed that the release clause was being met so easily they soon after raised it to 250m euros:

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/lionel-messi-barcelona-transfer-bid-10637978

    If an upper-mid table Italian side was prepared to pay that over a decade ago before he'd properly established himself, it just shows that sometimes a phenomenal talent comes along that is worth taking a bit of a risk on.

    The repetitive claims you make about FSG are never true yet people still have to read your posts. Why not just ignore this thread as I'm sure a number of people have done with your posts?

    The little boys in here that are hopeful that we'll sign him are the same that will cry on September 1st and say 'we were linked with Kylian Mbappe and ended up with Dominic Solanke'

    Then why doesn't this thing gets shut down by an admin? Or is it the children's section of this forum?

    It's been reliably reported that we've at least approached his advisors. Why should it get shut down, just because it's unlikely to happen? The admins have already said it's remaining open to stop the related posts taking over other catch-all threads such as the unreliable rumours and who would you buy discussions. If you don't like it, maybe don't read it?

    Agree...fancy wanting good players at the club and being dissapointed if we just end up with a striker with the tiniest bit of experience.....what a bunch of weak cunts we are, eh?

    I just wish I had your strength, your faith, your dignity.....but I could never....I admit my weakness, I'm expected more than Dominic Solanke....oh the shame....

    I am 100% sure that his advisors were approached about a move for January (because Mané AFCON...) when nobody expected this kid to cost more than £40m. If LFC were ever even in the race for Mbappe the race was over in January.
    The fact that it was reported now is just part of the game to increase the fee.

    Even if the above is true... and it's just your opinion... still, where's the harm? The thread is divided almost 50/50 between those who would love to us sign him but don't think it will ever happen, and those who think it would be a scandalous waste of money. So who is it hurting?

    Why keep posting in here if it bothers you so much? Reading and commenting on a thread that annoys you is probably a lot more STUPID than any fan hoping the Club sign one of the best young players in the game.

    Read the other threads. Comment on them or not as you wish and then go to the top of the rumours section and click on mark all threads read and then you can happily ignore this thread without it even showing up as having new posts all the time.

    Condescending much? If it offends you, and others, so much then skip it. Nobody is forcing you to read it so why try and force your opinion on us that do want to. At this point its this sniping more than anything that will force admins to close it rather than him being unlikely to move here.

    The lads want to chat about it so let them. I don't see you going down to your local, wherever that may be, overhearing a conversation about football and barging in going 'pack it in, you lot are childish.'

    You may be a bit more evolved but Scott, Schmee, ARD, Ed, ILLOK and me over 'ere are enjoying being slightly deranged. ZB doesn't count, he drinks tea so he's much more refined.

    It's an image the anonymity of the internet allows me to cultivate, but being a home-worker, when I sit around sipping my tea, generally I'm doing so in my underpants. lol

    Tell me you're not making it in your hot water bottle and taking it to bed with you:shocked:

    *edit* or worse. Loading it in said hot water bottle and using it to warm up your nether regions while wandering around pantless while sneaking a sip every now and then. ;-)

    Ok i will try to ignore this thread

    You guys remember the Arsenal fans that we use to make fun of when they are hopeful to sign Suarez or Higuain and end up with signing Yaya Sanogo and Lucas Perez? Probably that's what I am afraid of because some of us are moving into that direction of embarrassment.

    We ended up with Andy Carroll, Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing within six months of each other, mate. Trust me. We have already plumbed the depths of embarrassment.

    Thing is, we don't actually need Mbappe. I see him as more the sort of opportunistic signing where someone so good comes unexpectedly onto the market (even at such a large price) so you do as much as you can to bring them in, without any real expectation of doing so. If by some miracle it does happen, great. Fabulous in fact. If it doesn't, life goes on, no biggie.

    I'd be more than happy to bring in Salah and for he, Firmino and Mane be our main attacking options next year, with Origi, Sturridge (him staying is looking likely) and Solanke backing them up. I don't even think we need Lacazette, although I would be happy if we did bring him in.
