In Klopp we trust
- Jun 11, 2018
If Fekir comes in he’ll want to start. Whose he replacing?
It's 100% our decision if we want to call him back and it's be to play him if we decide to according to Klopp;
It's not just the PL Handbook that Limiescouse refers to (U.3 states that If a loan of a Player (whether by Temporary Transfer or otherwise) is cancelled by mutual consent, the Player shall not play for the Club to which he is returning unless the League has confirmed to that Club that the Player is eligible to play for it) but also the FA Handbook which states,Interesting. The PL Handbook says you need special approval to get a player registered if you bring them back early from a season long loan,but it doesnt say what the requirements are. Presumably we have determined we would get it in this case.
I am not so sure to be honest.He doesn't have to replace anyone. He will start enough games rotating with our other attackers.
At this point Klopp’s record points to him not going in for players he has previously been interested in, more than it does making another move.I think it's possible that we will sign him (look at Klopp's record)
Could also mean that the right player has to be available for Liverpool to buy.In a recent interview, Jurgen said something has to change “significantly” for us to buy in this window. the media, of course, generally interpreted that as Jurgen is open to buying. Sure he is, but the ise of “significant” makes me think it’s more unlikely than likely.
Not the status of his knee, the status of his value.
I really think you are being very optimistic about this. Pulisic had 18 months left and... £58m.Not the status of his knee, the status of his value.
Only 18 months on his contract, this time next year he could sign for someone for free, he's refusing to sign the new contract. All this makes Aulas desperate to sell as he's a pure business man and it would kill him to not get a fee for such a talented player. So for 50m our club may have said that knee wasn't worth the risk but at 25m or 30m they might just think the risk was worth it.
Whenever a player fails a medical, the issue is always going to be the increased cost of insuring the player. A known medical condition could lower the price, but it would raise the insurance cost.I really think you are being very optimistic about this. Pulisic had 18 months left and... £58m.
The real issue with Fékir is not money, it's something clinical. There's nothing pointing towards an interest from Liverpool, it's just fans wanting to have him. Money was never a problem in the first place.
It not saying I don't think he is great, I just don't believe we have any interest anymore because it doesn't make sense trying someone with a knee problem when you have money and all the rest of the world to look for another player.
I can give you a perfect player who's as good as Fékir in the french league: Thauvin. He is more trustworthy when it comes to his knee and he would probably cost the same. Could play in the right wing, AM, maybe even as a striker, who knows. He is an amazing player producing the same as Fékir in a worse team.
If we think a little bit more, there are many players as good as Fékir (maybe even better ones) that would cost the same but with no dodge knee.

I am sure Robertson, fabinho and others wanted to start when they came but Klopp is the man who decided how it played out. No worries there.If Fekir comes in he’ll want to start. Whose he replacing?
I could agree with you if the medical issue was something "simple", but I think it's something prohibitive from LFC's point of view. People like Pearce and Dom King are being very clear about Fékir not being a LFC target anymore. And it makes sense, imo.Whenever a player fails a medical, the issue is always going to be the increased cost of insuring the player.

I think you misunderstand him. He is saying that a reduction in his fee doesn't necessarily make him any more attractive an option because it will have to be balanced by higher cost of insurance.I could agree with you if the medical issue was something "simple", but I think it's something prohibitive from LFC's point of view.

If you ignore the overwhelming empiric data to support that one of the two methods have a much higher success rate - then it doesn't matter.That is precisely what it means to fail a medical.
As for the type of graft, there was a lot of nonsense written about it at the time. There are pros and cons of each type of procedure, which is why there are several different approaches. None is universally and undeniably better than the other and it is not reasonable to think we backed away because of the type of graft.
This is why imo any additions seem unlikely in Jan. Never say never and there might be a deal too good to miss but Kloppo typically gives newcomers ages to settle. He prefers a proper preseason so they fully understand the system and so I'm not sure any new signing would have much impact on this season.Jurgen has showed he introduces new players into the team when he feels they are ready (with the exception of Alisson), Robbo,Keita,Fabinho where introduced in parts till Jurgen felt they were fully ready and it has shown to be a success look at Robbo who at this moment is the one of the best LB in Europe. Fabinho has shown to be the missing CDM we haven't had since Masch and we all know it's only a matter of time before Naby shows the league what we all know what he is made of as we have already seen glimpses. If we get him can only see Jurgen doing the same with Fekir and introduce him sparingly until he is ready.
