      Matip and Lovren concern me. Matip slightly more so, thought he struggled, especially in the first half.

      Need Gomez back ASAP.


      Team has outgrown Matip. Wouldn’t mind if this was his last season with us and we get someone more suitable (or kept Klavan as 4th choice).

      I think if Gomez only out few weeks, we don't need cback but if it worse and few months we need buy other cback in January because vvd he need break down line and matip and lovern not great pair together

      Didn’t show up great but could do worse than Tarkowski for cover.

      Quick enough and decent on ball.

      Agreed. There are a few players we’ve outgrown.

      I'd love to risk it with Fekir for he's the best player available that can be (realistically) aquired. His 20y. old mate from Lyon would just be another prospect and we need to win now.

      I also think Matip is a valueable back-up. If Robertson hits the hosptial we have Moreno, if Lovren/VVD get injued we have Matip. Don't tell me there's no difference.

      don't need Fekir right now.

      Disgaree. Think he’s proven this season that he is a top quality player, he took the game to City and caused them hell.
      We are still clearly lacking creativity in the midfield area and think he would still be a huge asset.

      But, I don’t think it’s going to happen, I think it’s dead in the water now.

      He has only played 7 games out of 16 due to injury issues - not sure why people will hanker after him , he is a decent player but Klopp pulled out of a deal for a reason - the knee. Why the heck would we spend all that money on someone when their knee can go just like that.

      I think he’s a really top player mate.........if fit. If he is I’d love him - he’s exactly what we need.

      BUT

      If not then he’s no use to us so I’d rather stick with what we’ve got than take a punt.

      He’s also an expert piss boiler which - I’ll not lie - I love in a player ;)

      we need a player that's going to play 30+ games a season.  15-20 doesn't cut it, he's only played a handful of games this season. I believe he failed a medical here. What use is quality without stamina.

      As much as I like Fekir I'd rather we went for Pulisic, that lad is already fantastic and will only get better.

      No doubt he has ability - can see that but i dont think the prem would work for him

      I would still look at Lyon - Aouar looks a talent , then Pulasic

      Not sure how Munian and Williams are doing at Bilbao

      Pulisic is very direct and is more about speed and movement, so taking that into account, I personally prefer a more creative footballing player, someone more comfortable playing between the lines as well as wide areas, a Figo esq type....... someone like, Brandt :)

      Interesting - I think he’d smash it but you just never know.

      Yeh I like Aouar too but I was really hoping for established quality rather than potential - love Pulisic too but same applies.

      Think Williams might be bit further along in development but he’s another wide forward rather than a playmaker.

      One of the reasons I still have a notion for Fekir is on same lines as VVD.....maybe it just got fu**ed up in summer......

      Anyways - time will tell and I’ve a notion Ox has a part to play next year too.....

      Good point about Pulisic...he's not a Coutinho type of midfielder. I feel like he'd be much more in the mould of Salah or Mane, although for the national team he plays a bit more centrally and he can create, but even still..most of his creation is from beating his man and playing quick 1-2's

      That could work. I'm all for it. Great young talent. He is one of the few players I think the whole forum agrees on.
      I don't care about marketing in the US, it's just bonus. The lad has talent.
      Just curious who our targets are
       

      Not for me,at that price,not moved forward this season.Plus the usmnt fanboys are a weird bunch!

      Agree he is overvalued. Good, but there are other who can do what he does . There is no special need for us to sign an American.

      If we go after Pulisic, I’d bet it will be a deal similar to Keita. Make the deal now but don’t get him till summer.

      I think, looking at them this season, there are a couple of players in that Dortmund team that would be better options than Pulisic.
      I suppose it depends on availability. Alcacer they have an option to buy and Sancho will be a hard fight (& very expensive).

      None of the 3 are a proper 10 though and that should still be the priority.
      Fekir deal collapsed over his knee. Rodriguez at Bayern did his too.
      So there are 10s out there but the ones that might worth chasing are massive gambles.

      Are there others that can do what he does at age 20 and will likely do it for the next 10 years? Especially under the tutelage of Klopp who first brought him up to Dortmund's first team (training) and apparently likes him?

      His teammate. The one that's currently starting for Dortmund, at right wing.

      Right, and isn’t this his first impressive season? If you look at Pulisic’s numbers this year, they are actually pretty good considering he is fighting for a spot. But I’m not looking at him as someone to come in and displace a starter right away. I think he’s quality depth and one that will be a future star.

      No doubt he's quality, but he's getting some niggling injuries at the moment.
      Of the 2 players he's most likely to be the cheaper option.

      I actually worry that he won’t be the cheaper option. It seems that Dortmund is intent on getting somewhere north of 70m for him which is a ton of money for a 20 year old.
