      He’s genuinely insane, I don’t follow him but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t go onto his page every now and then to see what sh*te he was spouting. Convinced someone like him can’t exist I’ve never met a fan/supporter like him

      Who's this again? He's a pundit?

      If I understand the club's transfer policy correctly, the most we will have to spend is 11 million, barring any other outgoings for a fee.

      It might not even be that much if that 11 million from Lovren's sale is designated for some other expense.

      I think we will only be looking to bring players in for free.

      For backups, I'm fine with that.

      I think we can get around 20-25 mill for the trio of Wilson, Karius and Awoniyi, maybe 35 if we sell Shaqiri also.

      Could be money well invested in some good squad players. Also i think Grujic can be a good option from the bench. We will also probably looking to sell Ojo and Woodburn, but i dont think we will get big fees for them.

      From the relegated sides we could get some players on the cheap: Cantwell, Buendia, Ake, Sarr and Doucoure.

      Yeah, I'm not buying this we are skint narrative, if other clubs have money then we have money, I think we are just playing our cards close to the chest, if not then other clubs are taking a hell of a gamble spending money they don't have.

      What other clubs have money ?

      You surely aren’t going to compare us to clubs held up by oil billionaires are they ?

      Robbo was on the cheap was he not ? We signed Gini from a relegated team as well.

      Is the price that important to you or is it about getting the right player in for the manager.

      People really don’t understand the way the club works , the way the manager works and the current situation in regards our potential finances

      Players like Robbo and Gini are the exception though, most of our key players had a hefty price tag, quality players do.

      Mane and Mo weren’t hefty in the modern game especially considering the level of performance

      The club can only pay what it can afford - we won’t be spending mega bucks on a single player - the club can’t afford it and won’t make that level of risk

      A point I’ve made before; price is irrelevant, doesn’t matter if they cost 5mill or 50mill, ultimately it is down to the player to perform to a top standard and price doesn’t impact that. Mendy cost 50mill roughly, Robbo cost 7, yet Mendy isn’t fit to lace Robbo’s boots.

      I’d say the majority of our team cost between 20 and 35mill. Only Keita, Alisson and Virgil cost more than 40mill. Fabinho at a push could rise to around 40mill after add ons. Generally we aren’t a club who spends a great amount in one individual player, we can leave that to the Mancs, Chavs, Arsenal, City etc and we’ve still completely blown them away.

      Our defence has an academy graduate, either 3mill Gomez or free signing Matip at CB and 7mill Robbo from relegated Hull. United have 30mill Shaw, 80mill Maguire, 35mill Lindelof and 50mill Wan Bissaka but yet they’ve been a joke and over 30 points behind us.

      Couldn’t care less how much we pay for a player so long as it’s the right one, not sure why people deem the success of a player/transfer window on transfer fees.

      I don't think we'll be doing too much business this summer. I can see Lallana being replaced from within by Jones, hopefully we will sell Shaqiri and let Elliott take his game time. Clyne is replaced by Williams.

      Not sure on Lovren. Personally I'm think the fitness of Matip and Gomez is still a a bit of a gamble to replace him with someone like Nat Phillips, so perhaps we bring someone in here.

      Maybe that Ben White or go back in for Lloyd Kelly now that Bournemouth are down as he can play CB and LB or there's Jamal Lewis from Norwich.

      I'm not going to panic if we don't see a few arrivals, I don't think we're suddenly going to be sh*t, but I do worry a bit that when we come to try and replace some players over the next few years that a lot of the likes of Sancho and Havertz will have already been snapped up by other teams

      Klopp has a knack for signing high quality players for reasonable fees and getting the most out of the youth at the club.  Beyond what he's done here, you can find examples of this from his Dortmund days -- Hummels, Lewi, Reus, Sahin, Goetz, etc. 

      Both Klopp and the owners have earned our faith with the results and trophies from the last couple seasons.  Need to just relax and let them do their thing.

      It appears to be a modern phenomenon that more are interested in table some transfer table - the amount of times that people mention us being at the bottom of a net spend table

      1. Surely that’s a bloody good thing

      2. Why are they more interested in that table

      It happens too often to just all be about having an eye for a player though. Ultimately I think he's an excellent coach. I will never believe that had Rodgers stayed on and we'd bought exactly the same players at exactly the same time that he could have achieved what Klopp has, so I think we are buying players at their fair value and then Klopp is developing them to such an extent that they look like bargains with hindsight.

      German publications saying we are talking with Schalke about Turkish central defender Ozan Kabak. Seems like it may have a little more credibility, given the sources.
