      Saw Owen as a kid in the youth cup and it was a case of what is all the hype about he hasn't done much and in a flash he scored two goals that was Owen a sniff of a goal and he comes alight. Watched Brewster on LFC he is a mixture of Owen ,Rush and Fowler how can he fail. ITs worth looking out for his goals he is so f***in confident and bizzarely his year out may have actually helped his development as he has had lots of time to learn.

      There’s some players that come through the youth ranks and it almost seems as if you just know they have what it takes to make it. The likes of Owen, Gerrard etc all coming through around the same kind of time. Since then there were a few that maybe got us thinking but until Trent there wasn’t that feeling that they could go on to become a top player and really make their mark. There was a lot of hype around Woodburn, hype that I never really saw, there was a lot of talk about his potential but I’ve never really rated him, think it was just a flash in the pan and he’s shown that since. With Brewster though, I do get that feeling he could become a special player and I’m looking forward to seeing how he does.

      Gareth Bale would cost quite much but if he's really leaving Real Madrid, I'm sure he would be glad to join one of the best 3 clubs in the world and he's a sure bet. Man City and Liverpool are surely the best clubs of the world right now.

      I think very few clubs, in fact I can only think of one - United, who would be prepared to pay the amount of money Madrid would want for a soon to be 30 year old. Signing a highly injury prone 30 year for £80-100mill+ and then chucking £300k+ a week wages at him is madness. Could easily go the same way as Sanchez but with a massive fee involved. I hope we steer well clear of Bale because if anything is certain about him, it's that he isn't a sure bet.

      I agree from that video he seems to have the lot, speed, agression, strength and fabulous technique. I know it's against weaker opposition but he has a hell of a lot of potential.

      Wouldn't touch Bale with a barge pole.

      We're trying to offload overly paid crocks not sign more.

      So rumour we're in talks to sign de Ligt.

      We'll have the best defence in world football for years if that transpires.

      I would rather we sign Wan Bissaka instead of De Ligt. Matip and VVD are in their peak years, and then you have decent 4th choice Lovren, but best of all, we will probably see Gomez (a player with potential to be as good, if not better than De Ligt) stick to playing CB and challenge Matip.

      Thing that concerns me is the injury proneness that Matip, Lovren and Gomez have. Lovren is 30(?) now isn't he? He's never even played 10 consecutive games for us, I'd be quite happy to see him leave in the summer and De Ligt come in. I can't think of a team that would have a defence as good as Virgil, Gomez, De Ligt and Matip. Eventually Virgil will get on age wise and imagine already having a tailor made pairing that's been playing together for years when that happens. We'd have a CB as strong as our attack...except more depth to it and I don't think it's any secret that we are probably in a bit of trouble if we were to lose Virgil to injury, he is what knits the defence together and everyone plays off of his composure, confidence and leadership, which is very much like what De Ligt is becoming.
      Wouldn't be against Wan Bissaka though, be a boss back up option for Trent but I don't think he offers enough going forward for us to be going after him.

      People forget the fact Virgil needs a break as well. We were highly fortunate that he pretty much played every minute since he has joined. Bringing in someone like De Ligt gives Jürgen the option to do that as well as rest TAA for the occasional games playing Joe as RB. I'm all in for this. As for AWB, I think his "stats" cloud the fact that he lacks positional awareness at times plus his output in the attacking front is very little.

      Not saying no to any quality player that Klopp thinks will help us. Especially a 19 year-old Ajax captain and full Dutch international alongside Virgil.

      However:

      By the same token though - Klopp loves a redemption story, and "captains" .. imagine the fume if we get Real in the group stages of CL with Bale coming off the bench to rinse Ramos and bang one in the top bin to seal a 5-0 win :)

      Why on earth would we want him.

      He’d demand 300k a week and he wouldn’t even start

      Id take bale, but wouldnt want the club to spunk silly money at him.

      A loan deal or something would be good.

      I predict he will stay put, sit on the bench, play golf and get paid a fortune, and wait for zidane to get sacked again. ;D.

      "Klopp loves a redemption story", sorry but what is that based on??? In ay case £80m for a player injured 80% of the time is one hell of a price to pay in the hope that he might be fit for one particular game.

      Either some club, Man Utd, will pay silly money for him or he'll stay put and keep looking at his bank balance swelling every day and working on his game, golf that is ;-). I honestly can't blame him and find the whole thing quite funny, I think he's been treated quite badly by that shithouse of a club so why shouldn't he take them for every penny they are worth.

      According to reports Real Madrid do not have a lot of money available to them so I don't where the hell all these rumours are coming from of them buying players left right and centre.
      If we wanted MBappe then I'm sure we'd be quite attractive for him but it would be one hell of a price tag, would be an awesome signing though.
