      I don’t think he’s as good as, never mind better, than Karius.

      Agree.

      I'm not even convinced he's much of an upgrade on Mignolet.

      Looks like Barca has pretty much sealed Arthur, under 35m too. Makes me wonder why they went for Coutinho thinking about it, especially if this Arthur guy turns out to a monstrous dictating playmaking midfielder.

      Iniesta is getting, gomes is sh*t, paulinho not much better,  denis suarez will go no doubt and they need mobility in midfield as well as someone to put his foot on the balll

      Very different players though, Arthur is more of a DM / CM, Coutinho is a left forward / attacking midfielder

      I think Arthur is superb but he plays much deeper than Coutinho

      Yeah, saw YT vids of him, and I got a Xavi vibe about him. And with Coutinho's game more suited to dropping deep and picking the ball up, I wonder how having Messi and Arthur in the team will affect him. Will be interesting to see!!

      This is what happens when you allow agents and family to get in your head about playing football...

      Neymar Leaves Barca for PSG, then wants to leave PSG less than one season later for Real, but he wants more money than Ronaldo (Hate the C**t) even though he is half the player Ronaldo is and not here he is again saying.... Paris St-Germain forward Neymar regrets leaving Barcelona and the 26-year-old Brazil international has told the Spanish club he wants to return in 2019. (Mundo Deportivo - in Spanish) Here's hoping PSG makes him see out his full contract

      Lets hope that Salah, Mane,or Bobby become like this little prima donna and stay grounded
      Those rumours about Neymar are not true, mate. Spanish media is not reliable at all. Worst "journalism" in the continent. When something will happen with Neymar, his "friends" in Brazilian media start talking about it all the time and its not the case..spanish media is obsessed with Neymar. There are headlines about him every day there.
      They are just butthurted because he moved to PSG.

      He had another recent interview for fourfourtwo and said if he had the choice between us or Utd, he would choose Utd.

      I think he is decent, pretty much the German Shane Long with a better finish to him. We can do better imo.

      Edit:

      Quote from: Werner
      Manchester United and Liverpool were the teams I watched quite a lot in England. They were the two that I’m a little bit a fan of, because they have so much history. When Alex Ferguson was the coach, United won everything and were outstanding.

      In Liverpool it’s also their stadium and the atmosphere, but when I have to decide, I’m more Manchester United than Liverpool.

      https://www.fourfourtwo.com/features/werner-i-dream-playing-premier-league-im-more-man-united-liverpool

      Tbh, I don't want him, even if he is willing to join us and Utd are not after him.

      If any player that watches both of our teams play, still wants to play for United, I say let's buy them a plane ticket, I don't want them anywhere near our club.

      It was a pretty stupid thing to say because he's immediately alienated himself with one potential club. Still, I don't think Liverpool will go after him simply because of the difficulties in negotiating with Leipzig over Keita. By all accounts they just took the piss in negotiations.

      Wouldn't really mind giving another £40m odd to Arse for Ramsey. Cant believe they have taken so long to begin his contract talks. Think he would walk into our midfield over Gini and Lallana.

      That would be attacking mid sorted, letting us focus on a #6, winger and striker.

      What concerns me here is (If True) that Klopp need to go to the board to get “permission” for players he wants to sign…
      I thought that he was in charge of signing players…?

      I can understand Klopp telling them that he wants this player or that player, make it happen…but this (to me) sound as if it is more of a “I want this player, can I have him please?”

      Don't really buy news paper unless it is the Racing Post... Saw this on BBC Sports, ans if any other paper was running the same story (The S**, excluded) would have quoted them as well...

      Just because you think that the Express is a Dogshit paper it does not mean that every story lack some truth

      It depends. Whilst I believe he is in charge of signing players it doesn't therefore follow we have the budget to sign them. It may be breaking a wage limit we have, it may, with other planned signings, take us above what we have budgeted for. So many places to go to before worry.

      Reddy, Joyce, Pearce and sometimes Bascombe are the better sources for inner club dealings.

      I doubt we are in for Draxler. Klopp talks about liking new challenges re coaching. He also doesn't seem too inclined to go after "big" names so much. Living on a budget and all that.

      The guy who broke the Naby Keita deal has said we're seriously interested in Ndidi.

      I haven't been watching much Leciester this season, so for those of you that actually have (not YT clips), how is his reading of the game , tackling, distribution and composure?

      The few times I have seen him defensively he is decent but his passing and control esp in tight areas is not really top level.

      As Leicester mainly play on the counter not really seen him taking control of a game.

      I would prefer youre man Jorginho.

      Just to be fair....he didn't break the Keita deal, he started the rumor mill going after there was some signs of us already going for Naby. I do think he was being used by Keita's agent to help put some pressure on RB, but he also said Keita would be coming last summer and then he said during the winter window that we were going to get him early, so take what he says with a grain of salt. ;)

      Looking at BBC Sports Gossip and they (The daily Star,that is) seem to think that if we had and offer for Salah of at least £150m we maybe be temped to sell
      https://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/football/689868/Liverpool-Mohamed-Salah-Real-Madrid-Sky-Sports-Tony-Cottee-Klopp-rumours-gossip-news

      While another sh*t hole rag (The ***, was at the top of the page) believe That Real, Barca' and PSG will try and get Mo for around £200m this summer...

      And before you dismiss it as just paper, ask yourself this question. given that FSG underline policy is  having a "Resalable Value" Just like Suarez,Sterling, and Coutinho before him "If" we were offered somewhere in the region of £200m could you see FSG forcing through the sale especial since he was bought last summer and they may believe that Klopp would be able to find another gold goose next summer..? would you truly trust them to hold on the Salah...

      I wouldn't

      But the thing that gives me a little hope we could hold on to him is that he seems to love living in Liverpool, he loves the supporters and loves the club. He can see the club is moving forward and knows that he is playing a large part in it. And don't underestimate how much that means to a player, and how much it massages a players ego...

      Will be a interesting summer
