      I'm genuinely worried. If this is a mistake or Barca playing more games, they should be reported.

      I have a bad feeling about this. There is a disturbance at the club, and it has shown the few days prior to this.

      Nike's online store has an offer to have Coutinho's name on their shirt free of charge for the first week of January.

      I felt a great disturbance during Klopp's interview yesterday (or the day before) regarding Coutinho. He was very coy.

      To be honest, he should be. Nothing is guaranteed.

      If we come out guns blazing and sue Nike or report barca then there has been no deal.
      if we just come out and say, cou is our player and don't take any action then a deal has been done.
      anyway can't see cou leave in Jan, if that is the case then that's pretty fu**ed up by barca to try to mess our season.
      Would love us to talk to real and psg. Say what barca have offered and try to offload cou to them rather then barca.
      No we are not winning the league, nor do I think we gonna win the CL but we are still trying to achieve what we can.

      Barca doing this middle of the season is pretty fu**ed up.
      it isn't about cou, it's about the disrespect.

      What is the point of buying VvD when the club is contemplating selling Coutinho?
      I don’t understand what we would actually gain (other than money) because it doesn’t make the team any stronger it causes more problems that need solving. Like buying a new creative midfielder when we already have a world class one.

      I read that because of the Nike thing, Liverpool will only sell for an astronomical amount. It's likely to be above 160m. It's not gone unnoticed.

      We don't know what's going on behind the curtain. Could be the typical Trallallallalla of negotiations. Every side tries to get and use any piece of information to get some leverage over the other side. But for me it looks more like a done deal for around 130-150 Mio. €, effective in the summer of 2018. And those fellas from Nike just pre-jumped it.

      Having a full on leaving party in the city centre is not exactly discreet is it? especially half way through the season while we're on a 16 match unbeaten run..

      Quote from: Liverpool FC
      Liverpool Football Club today issued the following statement regarding the future of Philippe Coutinho.

      Liverpool FC can confirm Philippe Coutinho will be leaving the club after a transfer agreement was reached with FC Barcelona, subject to medical and agreement of personal terms.

      The player now has permission to complete the usual formalities to conclude the transfer immediately.

      5 and a half year deal and a 400m release clause. And more places reporting he paid money out of his own pocket for the transfer. I don't even understand why that's necessary or how he can do that. Either way, he's a Judas. He's dead to me.

      It was a leaving party. From a member of  staff that worked it. No doubt it will have been booked and spoke of as a New Years party but it wasn't.

      This is a joke of a transfer on our part. Suits absolutely everybody and everything involved besides that small matter of our current 'on the pitch' capabilities.

      But hey, f**k it, we win more without him than we do with him don't you know?

      I'll give it an hour before the Klopp statements are reeled out by the club's PR machine so we all agree with everything he says and that because if he talks about it it's all okay.
