      No he’s a petulant little git with terrible work rate and ethic. He was a one hit WC wonder signing that hasn’t worked out at two massive clubs now.

      I wouldn’t go near him.

      Hazard apparently will leave Chelsea. I'd at least try. Hazard is relatively old and without some brand (like Neymar). There won't be many teams willing to break the 100 Mio. barrier, so that's our chance. He'd instantly make us as a team that could win a CL 3peat as well as PL 3peat.

      Odds are slim of course. Chelsea might bluntly refuse him to us (and rightfully so), but you gotta go for the hot chick even if it's a long shot for it beats no shot at all.

      Quick comment on Solanke.

      Eighteen months with us   In on a Free and out for £19 million. 

      A £ 1 million a month profit.   

      Not bad accounting.

      Chelsea could soon lose forward Willian, 30, because they will only offer the Brazilian a new one-year contract when it runs out in 18 months, rather than a longer deal.

      If I was Klopp I would sign him in a heart beat, give him a four year contract... A phenomenal player that can turn a game in a on it's head, quick, pacey and knows how to find the net, look as if he could play at premier League level well into his mid-late thirties... Sign Him Jürgen

      Too inconsistent IMO. But then, I think he’s just one of them players I don’t rate.

      I'm a big fan of his and think he'd be excellent under Jürgen.

      Can see him going to China though for some reason.

      I really do like him, but again... I prefer someone younger, more between 22-24, preferably 24 (shame we didn't go for Anderson!) and in their prime and hitting their peak in 2-3 seasons time.

      Something a bit different.

      With Sven Mislinstat leaving Arsenal and him having already worked with Klopp, can we try and get him?

      He's a proven talent spotter. I don't know exactly how the club is structured in terms of the people involved in transfers and talent identifying, but if we could add him while keeping the same structure I would be very happy about that.

      Any opinions about him?

      Their signings have been largely poor since he’s been there. They got Aubameyang but they’ve also gotten the likes of Sokratis, Mkhitaryan and Leno etc. As for Torreira, I honestly don’t know what the hell he does on the pitch! People who moan about Henderson should watch that guy play.

      Compare that to our signings, I think our scouting department is miles ahead of Arsenal’s.

      Never been arsed about Willian.

      If we sell Sturridge and Origi this Summer I'm hoping we sign an exciting youngster who can be a real option off the bench and start matches in case of injury.

      I think Klopp in his entire time here has been loathed to use the bench because as soon as we get injuries he has to fill it with deadwood or u23 players he doesn't particularly rate.

      We have to build a squad sooner or later. There will always be a drop from first choice XI to the bench but it shouldn't be as big as what it is here.

      If Fekir is DEFINITELY ruled out by the hierarchy, I can see us going in for a #10 PLUS Werner and a CM. We are losing/lost Origi, Sturridge, Solanke and possibly Lallana & Milly.

      Salah/Werner
                          Bobby/#10
      Mane/Keita                             Ox/Shaq
             Gini/Hendo     Fab/CM

      That plus Wilson, Brewster & Jones would be quite some pool for the front-6

      Not going to happen but my options would be Werner, Fekir, Rabiot and a LB for cover, maybe Tavernier? Maybe Etheridge to replace Migs.

      Not a massive spending. Probably a combined 80mill for the first two, Rabiot is free and Etheridge wouldn’t cost a massive amount.

      Get Wilson and Jones involved too, probably more so Wilson at their current stages of development.

      Pavard would be the ideal defensive signings as he can play anywhere across the back but he’s Bayern bound IMO.
      Lallana, Grujic, Sturridge, Origi, Moreno, Migs and maybe Milly Out. Not forgetting we get the Ings money this summer too.

      Fab, Keita, Fekir
      Gini, Hendo, Rabiot
      Ox there too.

      Bobby, Mane, Salah
      Werner, Shaqiri, Wilson.

      Would finally have a team that has 2 quality players in each position, having first choice quality players being able to add depth to the team is just what we need. That’s the advantage City have over us with their team. We can match them player for player in the starting 11, but the trouble is, their 2nd starting 11 is virtually as strong as their first choice. Whereas we’ve found out this season that apart from one or two players, we don’t have that.

      I know you have never questioned his ability, but more so wary of his mentality after rejecting us, but after the Mainz vs Leverkusen and having yet another strong creative game, I really want him more than ever!! I think Klopp can take him to the next level, but more importantly, he will compliment Salah, Firmino and Mane, as well as be a damn good replacement if needs be.


      With Rabiot, a more dynamic and quicker player than Milner, better technically and more press resistant,  I think we will see more of a 3 man midfield setup, especially vs big teams. With Rabiot, Hendo & Gini, our midfield would take our high counter pressing to the next level. I think we would be stupid not to go for a free Rabiot.... no matter how much of a "c**t" he is :D

      Strong pass on Willian.

      Always had a poor end product.

      If you think he's "phenomenal" then Mo and Mane must be gods as they are both 100 times the player Willian is.

      What's the definition of poor end product? Sometimes it feels people just use this randomly against players they don't particularly like for a reason. The other day someone used this against Timo Werner, who has scored like 20+ goals per season for a few years.

      Agreed, and whilst Willian wouldn't take our first team by storm he'd be a massive upgrade to Lallana. People keep judging transfers by their ability to slot into first xi. At the moment it's our quality in depth that's a bigger problem.

      I still don't buy into buying simply if they have a sell value

      Van Persie for example didn't when United signed him from arsenal

      Some of us knew it was the manager.
      He was fighting against the committee to get his own signings in (see J. Allen and others).
      Not bad players by any means, but certainly not at the level we've seen since Klopp came in.

      For the first time in years, we have everyone at the club pulling in the same direction, and it shows.
