I love the news, but with everything that has happened with this saga- I’ll start celebrating when I see the lean/signing of contract/him getting out of the van with candy.
Well ok celebration time!
On local radio in Southampton Pellegrino was quoted as saying Southampton had no contact with Man City.Incredible, he rejected a certain league winner's medal and what not to join Klopp and Liverpool. Let's hope he lives up to the hype, it will be considerable and everyone will be out to criticise him first time he does something wrong. I'm disappointed about his recent Southampton performances, the fact that something wasn't quite right there (see Suarez and Coutinho as comparison - at least to a certain level) but Liverpool are getting a player who wants Liverpool.
Club are already spending Coutinho money, it seems, but if that fee + summer's transfer budget get Liverpool Keita, Van Dijk and someone like Lemar and they live up to their potential, it will be money well spent.
You can't say that for sure. He may pick City, but there are also other factors that may come into play.If Vvd has a choice of City or staying he will pick City.
Some people can't let go of that agenda..This is old money not new. We just weren’t able to spend it in the summer. Likewise Keita. Nothing to do with the sale of Coutinho.
Was Ferdinand a gamble? He became the mainstay of an all conquering Utd side.I don't like to play the downer in here, but I can't honestly wrap my head around this. He can't be that good, can he? Possibly a player who will reinforce us, but at that price? Klopp's future at the club will literally hang on this peculiar thread. If he turns out to be a Lovren mk 2, it will be curtains for Klopp and co, that you can be sure of.
It's a gigantic gamble, and to be honest, I don't like it one bit.
Anyway, I'll do as always and look for the positives when he joins us. But all in all, this move is just like the big ones of last summer: a symptom of how sick and morally corrupt football has become these days.
