      on the other hand you have Pep Guardiola who seems much stricter, not as pally and desperate for love from the players who wins everything in the domestic league and gets 198 points in 2 seasons. Yes yes he has a bigger budget but even so I think I know which style of management is more effective.

      BTW I am thinking big picture, I am thinking about January time where we'll have to either play a 17 year old or take Fabinho out of midfield just so that we can be "nice" to Lovren in the short term and let him leave.

      The one who get the most money - you do nothing but constantly run down the team, the players , the club - you used to do it on a previous forum as well - constant negativity towards the team irrelevant of what’s going. Why do you bother supporting the club - that’s if you actually do , prob never been the ground or watched any match beyond the telly

      And btw Pep has just let another cb leave and that’s means he now has 3 senior cb’s

      Lovren is 4TH CHOICE ! Tell me a team that has a 4th choice as good as Lovren ? Barcelona - Todibo, Real - Nacho, City doesnt have a 4th choice, Juventus - Demiral.

      Of course that is better to sell him and promote a youngster there.
      Agreed on the fact that he is a quality 4th choice but you are missing the point here. We all know he is bound to leave, but why are we selling after the window has closed and with no apparent alternative other than 2 kids who have not played more than a single competitive game for the club (only Hoever vs Wolves in that cup game really)?

      Edit: I might also add that even during this pre-season, nothing indicated that Klopp was gearing towards making Hoever or Van Den Berg his 4th choice especially not the game time he gave them. Got a feeling we are improvising and it's never a good thing to be improvising in professional football.

      He's 4th choice behind an injury prone back line, and one of the CBs ahead of him commonly plays at RB as he's second choice there (as he did tonight), and arguably second choice LB as well as we have no cover there, so it's not as simple as that.

      Can we at least get 1 last game out of him?

      It's not too late to change our minds you know ;D

      Beyond me if we sell him. Squad is thin in enough on quality as it is.

      Gomez will have to play right back if Trent is hurt and that only leaves two senior centre halves.

      The benefits outweigh selling him.

      Plus Gomez is really not a right or left back, I'd much rather see Hoever deputise for Trent.

      I don't get why we want to sell for all the reasons already mentioned but I also dont get why Lovren wants to leave for those same reasons too.

      He will get games if he is patient, Matip was in the same situation last season and ended up being vital in our champions league run. If he sucks up his pride and knuckles down his chance will come, and like Matip if he nails it, he will get himself back in the team.

      We are a very good team but we are only as strong as the depth we can boast. We should be able to have players willing to fight to get back into the picture.

      Good, but it should never have been on in the first place.

      Other reports say Dejan wanted a big signing bonus. It may be off with Roma but I wouldn't say the idea of him moving is done. Stay tuned.

      Not sure how or why but somehow the correct outcome has materialised. We need him for now. Perhaps in January the club can let Dejan leave once we have found someone else to come in. Would only need to be a Klavan type player.

      Has the faux outrage over a player a numbers of the whingers said "should never play for us again" settled down yet.

      Watched them draw today vs. Hertha Berlin (Marko scored a goal and conceded a penalty). Bayern do not look like world-beaters at the moment and this makes them look a bit desperate to be honest. Maybe he will light it up for them, and I don't know the financials of the deal, but I don't see this as much more than confirmation that Barca know they have made a colossal mistake in buying him from us (another reason we were right to avoid bringing him back).

      Coutinho on a loan is not bad business. You get a good player at reduced cost and minimal risk. Same as James last year.

      Time will tell, but just now he's off the boil. I expect him to make very little impact this season in Germany.

      Also, the figures being mentioned with his loan fee before were larger than some transfer fees.

      Time will tell as always (and James scored 7 goals in 28 appearances last season so.....meh).

      It’s not really reduced cost, if the reports of his loan fee are true, then Bayern are paying near on £30mill + wages for the privilege of one season. Expensive loan gamble to be taking.

      How much do you think his transfer would have cost? well in excess of 30M, no? if he doesn't work out, you return him and you're not stock with him like Barcelona is.

      It’s not about transfer though is it, it’s about a loan, a loan that’s got an astronomical fee. All well and good saying just return him to Barca in a year if it doesn’t work out but if it doesn’t work out then they’ve spent best part of 40mill on a flop, that they can’t even sell on to recoup some money.

      I would not mind us putting in a bid for him, looks a very good forward so far. In seriousness these are the sort of players the scouts should be identifying.

      Have you an issue with our scouting system?

      Are you aware Pukki is 29 years old and only reached Championship level football last season after playing the majority of his footballing career in Denmark?

      30 million for a rental is a major outlay.  If he doesn't blow people's minds, it will go down as a poor decision.
