      This - Shaqiri is loving life in the prem with us.

      Coutinho is the superior player though.




      if Shaq just practiced putting the ball into the top right of the net from the left edge of the box, he would be every bit as good

      Shaqiri has already scored 6 goals and only started a handful of games I think Couthino score 14 or 15 in his best season I can see Shaq getting more than that if he plays and he has assists to his name also.

      It's the Michael Owen's gone to Madrid, coming back in January/July conundrum.

      Owen was sold for £8m.

      Real wanted double (£16m) for a back-up player (and I may be wrong, he was their top scorer that season).

      In the end, it was all a bit unrequited flirtation with fantasy. He watched Thommo bang on the glass behind him in the punditry box in Istanbul, he went to Newcastle for the £16m.

      In this current market, £130m+ will translate to... around the same figure to bring him back?

      Will it happen? No. Is he good enough to still get in the side? Yes.

      It's a similar tale, except he will end up at PSG with Neymar in the summer. And they'll probably pay around the same figure that he was sold for.

      In the end: he's just another good player who went through another traumatic divorce with us - who thought the grass was greener.

      Look forward to his return to Anfield in opposition colours, so he can feel the full effect. Just as Owen did when we lifted the European Cup, sat in a suit.

      The only way we should consider taking him back is if he admits at a press conference while still a Barca player that he made the biggest mistake in his life when he allowed joining  Barca to turn his head, and that if he had the choice again that he would have stayed a LFC player for life

      Why? He doesn't fit our system. He doesn't offer anything defensively in the midfield. Even Shaqiri picks up more loose balls than Coutinho. He'd be too expensive as cover for our front 3. There's no way he'd get into our starting line up, he just doesn't score enough as a forward. Coutinho needs to be at a club that uses a number 10. That's not Barcelona or Liverpool, so he needs to go somewhere that people will build around him. Below wouldn't happen even if Coutinho were here.


            Salah               Bobby

                       Coutinho

      If we wanted a number 10 we got Shaqiri now. Coutinho is getting the problem I said he would, not strong enough defensively to be a midfielder and not enough goals as a forward, but as a number 10 he would get in any team that plays that system, but not many teams use a number 10.

      It’s not going to happen, or at least Id be shocked if it did. Putting to one side whether people would or would not like to see him return, he’d cost far too much. We aren’t going to pay over 100mill to bring back a player that wanted out so badly and that we’ve massively improved by not having in the team anymore.
      The only viable option for him to return is if it’s on a 2 year loan with view to buy for around 60mil. Which I doubt is likely.

      60m is a fair evaluation for him. He's massively overpriced.

      Liverpool FC can always find another Coutinho. But, Coutinho will never find another Liverpool FC. Period.

      Even if we took him back, where exactly would he play? I suppose he could rotate with Mane and/or Salah.

      Playing for That shower isn’t worse than faking a back injury and refusing to play for us.

      I wouldn't be surprised if he goes there, after all the sh*t he pulled to get his transfer to Barcelona.

      In any case they could probably offload him to PSG for more money.

      Jürgen is not going to go back for him. Behind that goofy grin, there is a ruthless man. He told many times that we did everything possible to keep him. Coutinho looked for greener pastures and got what he wanted. We got good money and for a change we invested wisely. Coutinho did not care about us and neither do I care about him.

      Objectively from his point of view it was probably worth a shot to get to the Nou Camp. United would be somewhat of a come down from what he anticipated but the pay will be similar if not better.

      He's a big club premier league player i'd say. Don't think he is a Barca player. He gets frustrated, shoots and goes for killer balls  too often for their style which requires a bit more patience.

      Be a good signing for United if it's true no doubt. Obviously from a Liverpool stand point; if he goes, he's dead to us.

      Theres not a chance in hell he goes to United, City or the Chavs...we are more likely to bring him back than they are to sign him, and even that is never going to happen. He will be at Barca until either the summer or the summer after and then he will be used to bring back Neymar in a swap deal. IMO.
