Great. Competing with Brighton for a 23 year old. Guess I was overshooting with Everton.
Yeah, that's not how these things work. Just because one transfer was kept in the dark doesn't mean they all are, the echo have reported many transfers before they have happened in the past. That said, I don't remember Ian Doyle breaking any of them.Neither is this other guy from the look of it. Fortunately I don't think there's anything in this. Where was the Echo on Fabinho?
Because wave bye bye to Harry Wilson in that case is why not. And for probably an inferior player. Belgian league is garbage and if he can't score even double figures in goals in it one time, I can't see on what basis the club could possibly invest.Interesting. Would be decent squad depth and at that price, wouldn't impact any of our other signings. Definitely not worth getting too stressed over in any case as there's still plenty of doubt over this eventuating.
I'm also very much in the camp of putting faith in our scouts, who have done a very good job in recent times. If they see something in him, why not?
Maybe the league, goals and assists are not so important to become a Klopp target. Maybe Klopp is looking at other statistics (not sure which ones it could be tbh) and he sees something in his movement. Or maybe it's a character thing and Klopp was looking for a player with Klavan mentality (happy to be at the club even if he will be on bench all the time).Bit confused, if true the club must surely know something the rest of us don't. On the surface it seems like very much an emergency, squad depth, option. The question would then be "why not Wilson?"!
Wow, and I thought my wife enjoyed a continuous whinge. :yawn:Because wave bye bye to Harry Wilson in that case is why not. And for probably an inferior player.

This would be worse than the Assaidi signing. At least he managed 10 goals in a season in a better league, and the club was in worse position then. There's no excuse for it now with the club where it is, especially since we literally just saw the effect that not having a game changer on the bench to call on when you need to can have.
I'm going to continue to think that the people in charge of transfers at Liverpool are smarter than this until they prove otherwise haha.
Rodrygo is probably better this guy right now, today. And he can't even leave Brazil yet.
Fekir + Simon - nothing more than that for attack.He looks ok. Makes sense if klopp is looking at buying two wingers as back up/rotation.
Having Moses, origi and Dembele/pulisic as back up is already an improvement.
Does make me wonder if Kent/Wilson and even woodburn have a chance. Maybe klopp doesn’t rate them. I’d have taken any of them as a substitute option last season.
You exaggerate the proportions of someone's argument, you can make anything sound ridiculous. By that I mean, there's a big difference between signing Moses Simon and a player from Ligue 2.Great, then let's sign Goduine Koyalipou out of Ligue 2 and hope he's the new Naby Keita/Riyad Mahrez talent there. Save about 9.5 million simoleons there, if not more.
Thinking you can sign a guy just to fill out the squad is how you end up with poor squad players. Liverpool did that for a decade or more.
If Liverpool is serious about trying to compete at the top of the sport, they don't sign guys like this. Look at Real Madrid's bench, that's what you want. This isn't what gets you there.
How do you know he is inferior? Please describe what you have seen in his play?Because wave bye bye to Harry Wilson in that case is why not. And for probably an inferior player. .
Or maybe Klopp would be more than happy if we can get ₤20m (maybe even more) for Wilson.IF, and it's still a massive IF at the moment, we sign this guy it will be because the scouts have done their job, the comittee and done their job and Klopp has signed off on it all.
If this comes at the expense of Wilson, then it implies that Wilson has been deemed not good enough or has asked to go on loan again, or Klopp thinks he should go on loan again, or whatever.
They're not bloody stupid and just because we've targetted a player that basically nobody has heard of, doesn't automatically mean it's a shit move.
