      Joyce figures we've spent around 150-200m on the contract renewals (with VVD's still yet to come) so that probably factors into our transfer budget.

      Keep your own first. Then you can be selective on who you want to add.

      Lots of the squad leaving it would seem (some kind of already gone).

      almost positive they're leaving....

      1. Clyne
      2. Mings
      3. Sturridge
      4. Kent
      5. Ings
      6. Karius
      7. Moreno
      8. Randall
      9. Bogdan
      10. Chirivella
      11. Ejaria
      12. Ojo

      Maybes....?

      13. Lallana
      14. Grujic
      15. Wilson

      Thats a lot of wages gone, and probably some decent transfer fees in. All for players who hardly kicked a ball for LFC this season.

      Staggering to see the length of that list. Maybe just the size of it dictates that some of them will stay, but you're right that most of these have not been in first team plans for some time, with Migs and Sturridge backups and Lallana perpetually injured. Only half were at Melwood since January.

      Aye its crazy.

      I would be surprised if they all left, as you say only a few have any 1st team dealings over past year. so the rest are really no loss.

      probably also dictates new signings..

      1) Goalie
      2) Striker\Attacker
      3) Left back

      the rest could be promotions from U23 or lads like wilson staying rather being loaned out, could wilson take Lallanas place in squad. ?

      What is it about Wilson's game that yall think holds him back? From the few games I have seen of Derby and the HLs he looks good.

      I understand Highlights are uber misleading, but the one thing they consistently show is a lot of what we lack (power from distance).

      I'm interested to get filled in by some one who has seen enough to properly assess him

      Lallana's value.was more in being an Energizer bunny in the press. His best season under Klopp he seemed to have a good understanding with Bobby and Sadio, but I don't know if he brings the physical quality to the press that Lallana did. He definitely can strike a ball with spectacular results, but look at Ox or even Shaq in that advanced midfielder role and don't know if Harry can press well enough

      The club has a couple of favoured journo's who think that because they are thrown the occasional scrap, it makes them reliable.

      The rest of the time, when the club isn't throwing them scraps, they are guessing, just like the rest.

      25 years ago, people had to rely on teletext fo transfer news.
      Now every wannabe claims to be ITK, and to be honest, I just find the whole thing boring.

      Once a player is doing the lean, I take an interest.
      Until then, I don't take much notice.

      If people enjoy the gossip, rumours and all the rest of it, fair play, but it's not for me and nor is the hysteria that swamps the boards when we don't sign a player that some no mark has said is "nailed on".

      You want "nailed on?" I'll give you nailed on. Watching Hertha Berlin vs. Bayer Leverkeusen, final day of the Bundesliga season. In the tunnel just before the match, Julian Brandt made a point of leaving his team's line, walking all the way back to where Marko Grujic was in the Hertha line and they warmly embraced and chatted for a few moments. I don't know German and I can't lip-read but I'm pretty sure he said "In a few months we'll be walking out with the subs at Anfield!"

      Brandt to Liverpool. Nailed on.

      (This will run in the next edition of The Daily Star, I reckon).

      Looking likely T.Hazard will be missing CL, and I suspect he will want to leave. I wonder if we are interested. Would probably be cheaper than Zaha , and just like the CP player, Hazard is 26 and hitting his peak years.

      Lloyd Kelly off to Bournemouth days after many of the trusted journos saying we're interested in him means ppl outside the club dont know squat about whats happening. Trust Edwards and Jürgen will pull off some impressive signings in the next couple of months.

      Saw the Hazard name, forgot it was the brother, then had the thought that E. Hazard is a better version of Shaqiri, which in turn lead me to wondering what's going on with him (Shaqiri).
      Now I'm wondering if he'll be sold, and if we can get someone who'll make more of an impact.
      I know he's had a couple of injury problems, but christ, against Barca the number of times he didn't even put enough on a pass was shocking for an international player who is clearly talented.
      I can only think it was nerves got the better of him.

      It's going to be interesting to see who goes and who comes in.

      Brewster could be our breakthrough player next season and striker cover. I think cover for Mane and Salah is more important. We need a versatile forward who can play on the wing or central.

      Neres, Werner or Depay would be my ideal signing.

      People will be surprised at how quickly Brewster will develop and become a star this kid is the best I have seen since I saw Owen in the youth team and in fact he is a lot better. Ox is back Shaq will improve young Harry Wilson is definitely worth looking at again his left foot is just incredible.
      So lets not spend money unless its a guarantee'd player and certainly not on any UTD rejects

      That's a hell of a recommendation Walton.
      Saw a fair bit of the lad in the (I think) u-17 world cup, and he looked way ahed of a lot of other players.

      Fingers crossed you're right.

      It was probably just paper talk.

      After the season we've just had (and not finished yet) we'll be linked to tons of players we're not in for.

      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.
