      Good news though I have to say I'd rather have Lemar. I'm - like Kloppo - a firm believer in the saying: "The best defense is a strong offense". So I'd wait till summer and try Lemar or even Pulisic from Dortmund and hope to make a trade deal with Barca "Coutinho for X plus some hand money". 80 Mio. € for VVD is too steep, dude isn't worth it.

      Because let's face it: The title is gone for us and we should be good enough to make CL with what we have, and if we don't, so what, this is a longterm project anyway. We are one top player away to be a powerhouse that will last at least 5 years.

      I also think the best defence is offense BUT you still need a defence and this lad VVD would greatly improve ours.

      For Klopp to get back to what he wants to play he needs elite players in defence/goals.
      We have none. If the game is going to ultimately ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK,
      then those left to defend need to be absolute monsters.

      Bit of an overstatement.

      I didn’t think he had a stormer by any stretch but equally I thought was more to do with how well we played.

      Yeh I saw they focused on that on Match of The Day.

      Not his finest hour - but I thought they stretched culpability to fit the “LFC & Virgil” narrative.

      It wasn’t him who lost Mo.

      I actually expected him to have a sh*t game against us, he wants us to have as many points as possible before he jumps ship in Jan. I still thought he was by far their best defender though and it was interesting that after we went a couple ahead he started defending quite a lot better, actually making some very good interceptions and keeping our lads out.

      I'd trade Ings and Sturridge plus 40 Mio. £ to get VVD and to make peace with the Saints so that we can approach them next time for their next player more easily. A smart businessmen tries to make his main "deliverer" happy once in a while, even if it costs him in the short run.

      Good call, if they'd take it.

      Interesting post!
      Daniel clearly needs to be at a club where he is number 1
      He deserves that
      He deserves to be at a club where he starts week in, week out...if fit. Think he is a damn good player but clearly not one that klopp sees as a first or even a 2nd option for us.
      He has had some brilliant times for us but wouldn’t begrudge him a move.
      As for Danny, I still hold out hope.
      I just want to see him fully fit and given a chance.
      It’s been so long now that I honestly don’t know what he could really give us except for a lot of hard work and a great natural instinct.
      Time is on his side.

      We need him for sure, so to improve our defense and strength in depth. We cannot depend on Matip and Lovren for different reasons.

      Apart from him, if we can find another defender which can improve us, I would take him.

      I have no problem to include Ings and Sturridge. Next Summer, we will have Origi, Solanke, Firmino and Woodburn or a new signing.

      Not sure why so many people are convinced we are going to sign him. We didn't even make a formal bid for him when we most needed him.

      It's obvious we have signed an agreement that we will not attempt to sign him because we may have tapped him up.

      I think with Southampton having had new owners in the summer the old weren’t going to sell their prized asset just before selling up and the new lot didn’t want that being their first action
      I think there’s a strong chance he’ll get his wish for a transfer in Jan the question is can we do the deal or not...

      FSG - Hello Southampton. Sorry for pissing you off in the summer. We were out of order for meeting with your best player, agreeing personal terms and then announcing the signing before we had even made contact with you.  Anyway, we would like to make a bid of 70m for VVD.

      Southampton - Never mind, it happens I suppose, we accept your apology and we accept your bid.

      FSG - Sh*t, sorry, that was a typo and we meant to press the 6 on the keyboard instead of the 7. Our offer is 60m, I hope that's ok?

      Saints - Wasn't what we were hoping for but if you hurry the deal and the payments along then fine, we will accept.

      FSG - Gee, thanks. The thing is though, we don't really spend any money until we sell one of our best players so let me just make a quick call to Barcelona and double check they're definitely signing coutinho.

      Saints - Look, are you buying VVD or not?

      FSG - errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmmm.....

      Saints - Hurry up will ya we need to give Stoke a call and check the availability on shawcross incase this goes through and times running out

      FSG - We would like to amend our bid and offer 5m plus Danny Ings on loan for a week and 20,000 Boston Red Sox jerseys.

      Saints - f**k off you cowboy cretin cu*ts stupid cheap b***ard waste of time fuckers

      *FSG make statement that they were unable to reach agreement with Southampton for the transfer of Virgil Van Dijk*

      I've stayed silent on him as I know very little of VVD having seen so little of him at Southampton in the Premier League. That said, I very much doubt he's a 'Championship' player. To be honest with you I just wish Carra would stop making these cheap tabloidesque, sensationalised soundbites. But then again, he chose to make his bed with Sly Sports so what more would you expect from him these days? Compare him to Gerrard's more balanced, respectful diplomatic outlook on the game with BT Sport and you realise there's a gulf in quality between the two when it comes to studio talk.

      To be honest, I think he's a bit of a cheap pundit is Carra.

      Honestly Carra has been the only thing making pre match/post match on Sky bearable.

      On Van Dijk though I would only have imagined his value has decreased. Wouldn't pay any more over £45 - £50m. That's if we're still interested.

      He is a very very good defender but no way he is still a £70million defender, for that kind of valuation you need to be playing at an established big club.
