Just as well.
i actually didn't say salah wasn't good enough . i said signing a player from serie A and expecting him to reproduce the same form is foolhardy . People in the salah thread were expecting salah to be the key to beating teams that park the bus .. and so far he hasn't proved to be that player . early days yet though .
Uh oh. ILLOK keeps a running tally of all your comments. You're all on the hook now. You're all going to be exposed as charlatans! This is awesome. Down goes Klopptinho...
keep a running tally of my comments and that person will become insane very very quickly ...
That explains the Scott Jones phenomenon
i thought you were @Scott Jones and i was also him.
Back on topic ladies.
I wouldn't buy him,no.
i would. i need a haircut .
i don't think there is a particular player i would buy . i mean if they aren't willing to play for free and join us before anyone else at the age of 2 then i say buy no one .
i might be talking absolute bollocks again though .
take a punt on Bale if Madrid are selling him at the same price the bought him for... cause what the hell and we don't like defenders anyways
Mourinho, United as a club and United fans all over the world would unite as one like flies on shit to make that happen for them.
Shane Duffy, anyone?
Lallana, Clyne, now Mane injured, Lovren playing half-crocked with multiple painkillers, Sturridge a shadow of his former self. Gini doing the Martian Manhunter and turning intangible. Firmino can't hit a cow's arse with a banjo...at this point I have no idea who to buy...an entire new squad?
isn't he a member of a boyband ?
He can do what he likes in his spare time as long as he can defend well in our team
Nah man. You're thinking of his brother, Keith.
could we get him too ? might do a good rendition of YNWA?
i would buy
Werner or Icardi
Funnily enough when he played for Everton he was always out in a club called Popworld in town.
From Klopps 2011/12 title winning squad he had so much control in midfield and two class CB's and a killer up front. These are the players you'd say he's missing to what was his winning formula.
Kehl - Dendonker
Gundogan - Keita
Hummels - VVD
Subotic - Giménez
Lewandowski - Icardi
Klopp has failed so much to move us on since he took over.
Or the players didn't want to join us. Or their clubs didn't want to sell.
Since he took over who aside from mane and salah would you say have progressed us?
I can’t see where we’ve got better aside from those two. I don’t believe only Vvd would of improved us.
In terms of overall squad quality we've definitely improved. Have a look at our CM options before Klopp and now. Sure they don't look great right now but they are more talented than what we had. Klopp has has just hit a massive wall with the squad so everyone looks bad. This group should be performing much better than they are.
Mascherano considering his Barcelona future at the end of the season.
I'll repeat what I've said for the last two years, which we're inexplicably slow to address. As it stands today, we need 4, maybe 5 starters to complete this squad. 4 or 5 that will fill spots right down the middle of the field.
Defense. I like Matip, but I'd like him much better as the #3 central defender, rotating in behind two others. I'd target two of either Kostas Manolas, Virgil Van Dyke or Stefan deVrij. With TAA, Gomez, Lynch, Robertson and Moreno (Didn't think I'd include Moreno, but he has pulled his game up and is a keeper) I think we're set on the outside, hopefully bringing Gomez along as a center half of the future.
In midfield, I get the feeling we'll be subject to Coutinho speculation in every transfer window, and sadly I say it's time to cash in. That leaves the oft-crocked Lallana as the most creative mid left. If/when PC does leave, I'd pull Firmino back into midfield and target a replacement for PC.
With Firmino pulled back into attacking mid, I'd be ready to pay a king's ransom for Mauro Icardi. A young team leader who scores, who would be the undisputed real #9. As well as center half, this is our most glaring deficiency. Salah and Mane should not be considered the primary scorers. Firmino IS NOT an acceptable center forward for a team looking to challenge for the league and European glory. Nor is Studge. He's a good strike partner. Cash in there as well. I'd also like to see Solanke given more chances, and to finally determine if the long suffering Ings has a future with us. Icardi, and the likes of VVD would also bring some more leadership to a team that sometimes looks to be lacking in this quality.
The last of the 5 I'd consider? A keeper. That, however, is the least of our worries after the others listed.
#1 - A top central defender and center forward. Would have to spend about 150-175 using this past summer's prices
Selling Coutinho would bring in about 120, meaning a spend of about 30-55
#2 - Another central defender and a top attacking mid.
Sell Studge for about 25, and spend about 100, meaning another 75 spent
#3 - Keeper. Bring along who we have.... Ward? or find one or two to develop.
