      If only we had listened, (the way we expect Barca to), the first of the eleventyseven times they said NO. 😁

      So this thing in my mind was dead before it started, although I read that odds were cut on him moving to Liverpool today and I just read an article on Kopworld that Jürgen is still hoping a deal can be made.

      Can't see it myself, I suppose it's just the papers running out of clickbait and recycling the same old stuff.

      My hope a few weeks ago was that Klopp would get his main targets (Keita and VVD) and we'd have time to add a couple more as well. Now I feel like we wont' add anyone and with Coutinho and Lallana's injury, all of the sudden, our midfield may be a liability.

      Strangely enough this was the one that I was convinced (as soon as we bid) we would get.

      Still hoping it can happen because I still feel it's important to strengthen the spine. Fingers crossed on all fronts. 🤞

      I'd heard the looking for a house in Liverpool rumours, not the meeting with the club one though. Guess we'll know soon enough, I'm a little exhausted with all this inaction, who knew it could be so tiring.

      Doesn't the club have an office full of staff for this kind of thing...I had read we have an entire team dedicated to getting all of this sorted out for player's and family's so they don't even need to deal with it.

      The rumor is his agent was looking for a place, but his agent is also Mane's right?

      But hey, Keita like a Liverpool barbershop on Instagram the other day, he must be coming!!!

      I'd imagine so mate, but even if it is one of Keita's representatives, who let's a representative choose a house for you? Sure to rent one temporarily but to me it just doesn't sound true whenever I hear it.

      The rumor is his agent was looking for a place, but his agent is also Mane's right?

      Yeah his agent is the same as Mane's, or so I've been led to believe anyway.

      You put much faith in it though Daz? I have heard his current boss has been quoted recently as:

      Naby Keita to Liverpool: Club chiefs thought deal was done - transfer claim
      A TWITTER transfer in-the-know has made an extraordinary claim about Liverpool's chase for Naby Keita.

      Liverpool fan Graeme Kelly, who has more than 65,000 followers on the social-networking site, is a constant source of Kop transfer news.

      Speaking on the Code Red podcast, Kelly said he has heard from those inside the club that a deal for midfielder Keita, 21, was done.

      The Reds were told to bid £66million, which they eventually did, only to be stunned when the offer was knocked back.

      Kelly now thinks that RB Leipzig are just trying to get attention on themselves and that's their motivation this summer.

      Kelly said: "Don't get me wrong, I think their stance will weaken somewhat but Red Bull love the press.

      "I was told Red Bull said to Liverpool: 'For £66million, he's yours.' We bid lower than that first time, £53m, but we went back and bid £66m and they turned it down.

      We bid lower than that first time, £53m, but we went back and bid £66m and they turned it down


      "Even everyone at the club were dumbfounded. They thought it was a done deal.

      "I think it's Red Bull just wanting the limelight. It strikes me as odd for a club last year whose revenue was just €82m. They are in a massive amount of debt and they've turned down almost their entire year's revenue for one player.

      "It doesn't ring true for me. I don't see how they can do that.

      "Anyone can buy him for £45m next season so I just don't see what they're doing here.

      "I think Red Bull played the game with almost everyone.

      "I was told it'd go back and forth and they'll create this story.

      "Apparently when the bid came in and they turned it down someone said Jürgen Klopp actually laughed, because they were a crazy club.

      "They don't do things the way football clubs do."

      if that is even half true and I was Keita I'd be doing a VVD to get the hell out of that nutty club sharpish.

      I think it's just a case of them wanting to raise their profile and thinking "any publicity is good publicity", so they act the c**t knowing it will get plastered all over the papers.
      It's a lot cheaper than a Red Bull advertising campaign, that's for sure.

      We live in a media age where f**king Kim Kardashian is a role model, so how can we expect an up and coming club to play to play by the "established" rules of the game.

      Yup stunk of media whoring from the get go.

      It's interesting in that if it was Bayern, Barca or even LFC....the manager comes out and says "not for sale, nothing more to say"

      RBL seem on a daily basis to have to come out and say something..anything...it's almost like they are doing it simply because they see the club's name all over the papers and internet whereas in real life nobody cares about them or pay's attention.

      Whether he stays or goes..RBL is milking the PR for everything it's worth and seem to be lapping it up now while they can.


      It's a small time club trying to make themselves relevant.

      Sounds like RB is run by nutters....


      Naby Keita to Liverpool: Club chiefs thought deal was done - transfer claim
      A TWITTER transfer in-the-know has made an extraordinary claim about Liverpool's chase for Naby Keita.

      Liverpool fan Graeme Kelly, who has more than 65,000 followers on the social-networking site, is a constant source of Kop transfer news.

      Speaking on the Code Red podcast, Kelly said he has heard from those inside the club that a deal for midfielder Keita, 21, was done.

      The Reds were told to bid £66million, which they eventually did, only to be stunned when the offer was knocked back.

      Kelly now thinks that RB Leipzig are just trying to get attention on themselves and that's their motivation this summer.

      Kelly said: "Don't get me wrong, I think their stance will weaken somewhat but Red Bull love the press.

      "I was told Red Bull said to Liverpool: 'For £66million, he's yours.' We bid lower than that first time, £53m, but we went back and bid £66m and they turned it down.

      We bid lower than that first time, £53m, but we went back and bid £66m and they turned it down


      "Even everyone at the club were dumbfounded. They thought it was a done deal.

      "I think it's Red Bull just wanting the limelight. It strikes me as odd for a club last year whose revenue was just €82m. They are in a massive amount of debt and they've turned down almost their entire year's revenue for one player.

      "It doesn't ring true for me. I don't see how they can do that.

      "Anyone can buy him for £45m next season so I just don't see what they're doing here.

      "I think Red Bull played the game with almost everyone.

      "I was told it'd go back and forth and they'll create this story.

      "Apparently when the bid came in and they turned it down someone said Jürgen Klopp actually laughed, because they were a crazy club.

      "They don't do things the way football clubs do."

      The only part that could be true is Jürgen laughing (after getting to know about the bid being turned down)

      Graeme Kelly's been running off one half decent prediction (when he claimed Rodgers would be sacked after the Everton game in 2015...as did plenty of people given that it was an international break) but since then he has been bullshitter extraordinaire. Notice how all his 'claims' come with numerous pivot points and obfuscation 'however it is possible that...' 'it seems unlikely at this stage' etc etc to cover his sorry arse in the likely event that he gets proved wrong...again.

      I'll tell you these guys are the new wacko mediums you used to get at carnivals.

      I have it on no authority that we might sign this player but maybe not this year
