      I also remember the many, many posts bemoaning "it isn't the Liverpool way" when various owners were accused of planting stories, only for the same people to moan about "lack of communication" when there are no stories.

      It seems to me there was a big culture change at the club to stop information leaking, and I applaud that.

      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.

      If we don't take maximum points in games before Gomez is fit enough to make an appearance it leaves us one point (two if we draw) a head of City...
      How it seems that so many here forgets 2016/17 January run, or maybe that should be stall...

      Defense wise we are in a better position then than we are now...

      Look at the difference in prize money between finishing 1st and 4th in the premier league £6 m Last seasons money

      https://www.totalsportek.com/money/premier-league-prize-money/

      Qualification for the quarter-finals of the CL is worth €10.5m (£9.37m) per club
      Semi another €12m (£10.71m)

      https://www.uefa.com/insideuefa/stakeholders/clubs/news/newsid=2562024.html

      That's a possible £25m in prize money. So even if a defender cost £50m, winning the Title, and getting past Bayern gives us half the money back... Win the Title and make the finals and it would have cost us £10m for a CB...

      Add to that the commercial value of winning the Title, and the ability to attract new talent v.s. another "also ran" season surely you can see it is the only prudent thing to do...?

      And just because Klopp says he won't does not mean he is right... He wasn't right when he had to be "persuaded" to buy Salah a player he did not want

      Never heard of Lucas Paquetá. From Googling I found he's 21 and has less than 100 career appearances which are all at a club in the Brazilian League.

      I just watched my local analysis about Timo Werner and they referred to below article. I think it's very interesting so I post it here.

      Think we can likely forget January for signings this year. In the summer I expect we will bring in a big name striker though, or a striker well on his way to being one of the best around to replace Origi and Sturridge. We can’t go into next season with just Bobby and Brewster. Can we class Werner as a big name? I’m not sure if he is that just yet, but I think he’s the standout choice IMO.

      He is incredible. Had a pretty decent debut for a player who has barely joined in the middle of the season!

      For 100m, we could find a player much better suited to our system.

      Barca and coutinho were desperate for the move, so we fleeced them, no way is he a £100m player, he stunk the place out with his cry baby attitude, serves him right.

      Not for 100m but for 50. I'd get him back. I don't take leaving personally. Nowadays there aren't much of loyalty. You have few lads who are loyal but the majority of players are just players who want to be payed well, play for a big club and win things.
      The same goes for clubs, they will sell a player when not needed.
      I'd take cou back because he is still class and pretty young for one who has played for a long time.

      I wonder how much Barca have actually coughed up so far? I'm guessing it's in instalments I'd be surprised it's more than £30m, the only way I could see him coming back/us having him back is like you handing a car back on finance if you haven't paid for it. Maybe a slightly daft example but I don't think we'd pay  a fee for Coutinho Klopp would probably think he could get a more suited player for a far lesser fee. Another thing Phil would have to take a wage reduction and thats what worries me United would pay him more.
      I also wouldn't be shocked to see him go to PSG as a make weight for Neymar.

      Two fingers.

      He couldn't wait to get out of here .... didn't even show any dignity.
      We do well out of deals like Torres and Coutinho.
      When you leave Liverpool the only way is down.

      No ........   So long and thanks for all the fish.

      We got Virgil and Alisson with the money.

      Little Shaq does his job with a few long range shots for us paying 10% of the money we got for Coutinho.

      Sentimental blablabla, Coutinho back would mean we've got a better chance of winning the league. Not gonna happen though.

      Torres and Suarez left us and soon became European champions. Coutinho in six months at Barcelona has already won more than in years at LFC. We won the league cup, six years ago. If we want players to stop leaving us, we have to lift some trophies, not try and appeal to their higher sentiments. Hopefully we're on the way to start doing just that.
