John McGinn would be a very good signing for next summer. Rate him highly.
Very interesting player, I'm sure @Zoran will agree. :) It's been a while since I've seen a central midfielder so intent on making those late runs into the box. I'm not convinced about his defensive contributions but his technical ability is second to none. Yeah, I'd like him at Liverpool but we know just how much Klopp has invested in Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain and he'll give them every chance to prove themselves first.

Then again Eriksen's out of contact so he could be another one we could consider.
Eriksen would be a fantastic #10 for us and allow us to play some 4231. If he would be available on a free, that would be a great get for Liverpool.

I also would like to see Erling Haaland join LFC. Scored a hat trick in his champion's league debut.


This lad has bags of potential, great strength, size, and finishing ability in the 19 year old from Norway.
He also has PL bloodlines as his father Alfie played for over a dozen years in the Prem.

Haaland could be the physical 'beast' we need out front and give our attack an added element that will make it even harder to stop. In the case we signed Haaland, Firmino could also play the #10.

It was bad enough seeing Kane in a Liverpool shirt in FIFA 17, never mind in real life.

Wouldn't take him on a free to be honest, don't think he would fit in with our team at all.

Granted he has a different style of play, but in an attacking team like Liverpool hewould, imo, be even better
He is an effective forward, no doubt. But I don’t think he has the workrate or tactical award for this team. That’s without going into his character, which I think is a bit questionable.

The ideal signing for me would be Keita playing to the potential we thought he would when he signed. If he can't, I think we should go for that type of player. I only saw him play one match, so don't by any means take this as gospel, but to me Minamino looked exactly the type of player we wished we got when we bought Keita.

Kai Havertz, Jadon Sancho. The sting in the tail is Mo might leave. Just a hunch.

Haaland looks a good player. Minamino had a great game against us. Eriksen on a free would be a no brainer. But the first two mentioned look among the best of the young players in Europe already making a real name for themselves.

Danny rose from spurs. Would be a very decent backup to robbo.
Jadon Sancho would be a world class player in a year or two, will get lots of game time as our front 3 would be rotated.
Emiliano Buendia from Norwich or Minamino from Salzburg, both a gamble, have potential to be very good players.

I would really like us to sign one of those players in Jan itself.

Danny Rose. Okay. Can I ask you a question? What is wrong with you?

Harry Kane, reminds me of Ian Rush
Harry Kane is the best rubbish player in the Prem. It’s a mystery to me. No great pace. No trick. No real ability to beat a man. No great strength, or skill... but he does score a lot of goals.

It’s one of life’s mysteries.

Ian Rush was blisteringly quick, and very intelligent in the runs he made to link up with Kenny. He could finish, left foot, right foot, no bother.

Harry Kane enjoys a lot of the Spurs play coming through him, and he takes a lot of shots, but even though he scores goals, the deference to him limits the Spurs team. His goal stats are also padded from being a penalty taker. Obviously he’s not a rubbish player, but that won’t stop me calling him the Prem’s best rubbish player, as I am amazed why such a modest talent keeps scoring goals.

If Mo leaves, we will get Mbappe.
Otherwise there will be riots.
There will be riots anyway if Mo is sold.

I don’t want Mo to be sold. He’s a great player. I’m just guessing that he might like to try another place at some point, and if it comes to it, and a win-win could be worked, we would do it. Sancho ad Havertz seem more doable than Mbappe but if we are able to sign Mbappe I’ll be as delighted as any red.
