      Gomez is looking top drawer to me, so don't see the need for a replacement. Possibly just a bit more depth, especially with Matip injury prone.

      A top class RB would be fine, but I'm happy enough with Trent, so again would be happy just to get one covering full back ( and fund it by selling Moreno).

      The club isn’t going to buy a “top class RB” when we have TAA and fund it by selling Moreno  :lmao: - how much do you think that’s going to raise when he has 6 months left

      I see Tarkowski as  a long term target, But short term Cahill Or some one on loan, but someone at least

      Klopp has said he won’t be getting someone in short term and even more so when Matip is back next week and Gomez looking like the week after

      I had issues with Clyne, defensively. Every time a cross came in from the other flank. His back post defending gave me the same uh-oh feeling I used to get every time Skrtel manhandled opponents in the box.

      A lack of playing time has certainly made people remember Clyne with more fondness than he deserves.

      TAA has the same problems as Clyne then as he gets sucked into the middle . A top class RB is definitely  needed

      Why don't you try reading a post properly before laughing at it? I was replying to PurpleMonkey, who wanted a top class RB, and saying that would be fine but we didn't really need one and should buy a covering full back, and fund it by selling Moreno. (I didn't know Moreno's contract was up in summer right enough, but no need for the twattish reply.)

      Again how much do you think we are going to get for Moreno whose contract runs out in 6 months - and what sort of cover at right back do you think we would get for that money ?

      I swear far too many play football manager on here

      Klopp has already said no short term players and indeed no signings

      We have cover and the manager doesn’t mind trusting the kids

      “We have four centre-halves. Three, maybe, two-and-a-half are injured so we’ll have to try and come through in the moment.

      “We need them back but you cannot buy a fifth centre-half and say ‘so you play two weeks and after that the others come in’”.


      Maybe it might stop your daily nonsense about a CB but I doubt it - thankfully the window closes soon

      I am 100% sure there are a few better than TAA that could be available if Klopp were interested, but he has faith in TAA and the backups we have in Fabinho and Milner.

      I agree with the person who did we need another backup striker. Lallana and Sturridge won't last 90 much and I'm thinking Origi us average. Sturridges contract expires soon anyway.

      Getting a new CB is a bit knee jerk.

      I think we should buy a good centre back now and let either Lovren or Matip leave in the summer of we feel we don't have use for both of them. Lovren is error and injury prone, another centre back around Matip's level would be wise.

      So you think there is no one better or on a par to compete with him seriously ?

      There are no doubt some better players right now than TAA but he had potential to become one of the best in the world - right now imo he is one of the best in the Prem - wouldn’t swap for anyone in the Prem so to get someone better you are going to have to spend a significant amount of money on an area that is prob right down the bottom in terms of priority- and it makes it daft to spend silly money when we work to a self sustain model and have areas that do need strengthening. We aren’t city and can’t spent £20-30 mil on someone to provide back up

      Where we are now we need competition for  places yes Milner and Fab can  cover as can Gomez but that means they are being moved from their ideal position . I think someone approaching the end of their career but is still capable of providing adequate back up and competition is what we need at LB also . I do get the idea of players who can play multiple positions and that reduces squad and capital suppose it's better the devil you know and at the moment in some games Jürgen certainly doesn't want to play him all the time

      We don’t have unlimited funds to be able to get the players needed to have top players in positions , City can spend it and to an extend Utd but we have cover in the full back areas but a LB would be nice , I do think he has his eyes on players in the youth academy to come in

      Thanks for pulling me on the math, I'd written off Divock staying - too soon.
      But with this season being our best chance of a title for ages, would still really like us to sign another attacking option.
      We can't compete with Citeh's depth, and have to assume they will finish strong.

      Benjamin Pavard (22) of VfB Stuttgart will transfer to Bayern Munich at the end of this season. Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic confirmed the defender will join Munich on a 5-year-contract starting this summer.
      https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/bayern-sign-pavard/view/news/326827

      No LFC business about him but I saw few reds here mention this boy before.  He's going to play in position of player I like most recently that's Joshua Kimmich, not watch him play much though.
