    would love us to sign Oxford. Think he's an outstanding talent.

    Just how good do you think he could be ? A better prospect than say Brannagan or Stewart ?

    Serious question mate

    he's a complete different player to both of them. Oxford is naturally a CB and that's where I see his future, though he can operate as a DM if required. If we signed him I think we'd have arguably the 2 best upcoming English CB's

    For what its worth, I don't think Stewart is much of a prospect, he's abilities appear to be very limited and he's 22 so no longer a youngster that we should look at as 'potential'

    Fair assessment.

    I think Stewart will be moved on and that we will get a tidy sum for him. I like him but he is 22 and won't play at least a third of league games.

    I have only seen Oxford on match of the day or in the odd live game, I never really paid any attention to him because I thought nothing of him to be honest.

    A centre back position will be extremely difficult though, Lovren, Matip, Gomez and AN other (Sakho will get done) I can't see Klopp going for further inexperience. I may be wrong

    DM might be a better option for him. Lucas may go, so we may look to bring in another couple of players.

    Thanks for your opinion

    You think Stewart will move on in this window? Would be odd considering he's just signed a new contract but I wouldn't be totally surprised or against it.

    Well Reece Oxford doesn't turn 18 until December so he doesn't need to be ready to step up for the first team yet.
    17 years old but he's already gone one hell of a physique, standing at 1.91m, plenty of time to muscle up and he could be a top athlete.

    Didn't the Echo report that Niklas Sule had turned us down to continue his progress at Hoffenheim? Also rumours of us being interested in Jonathan Tah, so based on that it looks like we're after a young CB.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Gomez at RB a few times tbh.

    Sometimes players are offered new contracts to increase or protect their market value.

    A centre back will very much depend on Sakho and how long he gets. 2 years and he is gone - we will then no doubt bring someone in. Tah or Sule, its a matter for the club and the player, but I think they will buy if Sakho gets done heavily.

    Gomez at right back, no I don't see it. Flanno yes, Gomez will be left in the middle, in my view

    Maybe it was a judgement on the club sign him up, for rainy days. Will hold his value. A loan this season or sell

    I don't see him getting 2 years, I think he'll get 6 months max, which would mean he'd be back by October/November.

    not been on here for long, whats the general consensus on Sakho?
    I've seen people say they want him to be banned as they don't rate him and we're likely to buy someone if there is a ban

    It's not a case of wanting him banned. It is a case that he broke the rules, in the full knowledge that he was breaking the rules. Therefore he must be banned.

    No player can be above the rules in regards to drugs.

    It does not matter whether it is Sakho or an under 16 player or how valuable the player is in the transfer market

    but his team are arguing that the drug shouldn't have been banned in the first place... if thats the case then he doesn't deserve a ban at all imo

    It was still on the banned list when he knowingly took it. He could have tried to get it taken off the banned list before he wanted to take

    The fact remains it was on the banned list.

    If he disagreed with it being on the list then he should have made representations BEFORE using the drug.

    Individuals cannot decide what rules to adhere to or not.

    I suspect he will get the 2 years because he KNEW he was breaking the rules

    Mixed really.I'm not a fan of Sahko or Moreno, but plenty of people on here are.

    Despite his qualities I view him similar to Moreno-too much of a liability to have any defensive solidity and prone to horrendous mistakes, think they both need replacing, possibly kept as squad members but not first teamers.

    I reckon you'll probably be right but I reckon it'll be 2 years from when we suspended him and not from when they issue their findings

    Self made Mod eh?

    Take it from someone who used to be one, they don't take kindly to being told what to do.

    That certainly wasnt the intention of the post perhaps I should just have asked why this thread is still open when this particular subject has long passed and everyone is discussing things in here bar the subject the matter

    Appologies to all Mods
