      I was at Ewood Park, think everyone was shocked by Lazar. He looked in shape, much more trim. He actually looked like a constant genuine goal-threat, and had much more presence than Origi or Solanke. His runs and his goal were superb, despite looking short on form/confidence at times.

      Doubt we'll see him this season, but good to see he's potentially turning his career round if he can find somewhere. I wouldn't personally mind him being given a shot here. There are plenty of cup games where we'll be playing more Blackburns after all.

      I've always said it, there is a player there, he just needs to find some confidence, motivation and consistency

      I assume he isn't in Klopps plans.

      BUT... if he impresses on the tour is Lazar worth considering as a back up option for LW.

      He looks physically stronger than I've seen him before.
      If he's not in Klopps plans, Ojo,Origi, Solanke and Ings can't be either.

      Maybe after that performance he has worked his way into Klopp's plans

      1 half decent performance in the 2nd half vs Blackburn. He’s been at the club about 4 years and made no impact at all, Klopps seen him plenty of times in training and would have been monitoring him on his loan moves. I don’t think a decent performance for 45mins is suddenly going to change things.

      Not good enough, simple as that and I would be very surprised if Klopp has suddenly changed his mind about him.

      If anything, he’s just enhancing the chance of us being able to bin him off for good and not just another loan move.

      If he's not in Klopps plans, Ojo,Origi, Solanke and Ings can't be either.

      Ings clearly isn’t in his plans, and I doubt Origi will be sticking around. Ojo and Solanke are a completely different situation.

      So we should keep Ojo, Solanke and Markovic whilst in the league cup. Ings and Origi should go Rangers.

      Cant believe no one will even take him on loan, for his own sake he should just buy out his last year of contract and start playing football somewhere.

      Its a short career and i doubt he will look back and think well I got paid for 4 years for doing f**k all for the best years of my career!

      Well TBH there's much f**king worse than getting paid a shitton of money for doing nothing. Like, that set consists of basically every other possible thing.

      To think we'd still be singing sh*te like this guy season on season if Klopp had never arrived here.

      Jürgen has single handedly saved this club.

      Benteke
      Borini

      Oh we've had a fair share of clangers over the last few years mate Lazar is just one on the list.

      Although we at least got a few quid back for the others so yea be probably is the clubs all time biggest flop.

      You want a player that hasn’t looked anywhere near good enough in the 4 years since signing and won’t be even considered for the match day squad to stay for the League Cup, despite us significantly strengthening the team?

      I’m struggling to see your logic here.

      Good luck to him -  he was at one stages being lined up by a lot of clubs and was touted as a special young talent , looked very good for Benfica - think he was signed too early and needed game time to develop and just stagnated. Hope he can recover a bit and get his career back on track

      I think the problem is between his ears.
      He thought he'd made it, and didn't progress.
      He's not the first, he won't be the last.

      Don't think we were the only team in for him we just got unlucky. He had so much going for him but never seemed to be able to bring it on the pitch. The lad must have been depressed for a number of years seeing his career going backwards.
      Hope he finds his level .

      Deal collapsed because of personal terms not being agreed. I guess he probably knows he will never earn 35K p/w, so sitting on it as long as he can.

      Yes but if we were to play Markovic against Chelsea we would have conceded defeat anyway unless they fielded a team with equally sh*t players.

      Stupid thick floppy haired fool would he not take the hint have some self respect and leave the club to work elsewhere.

      This is exactly why you need to be so careful with expensive gamble transfers if they don't work out you could be left with a leech like this guy happy to sit on his arse with no ambition collecting his big salary until his contract runs out.

      Pathetic.

      Only 1 year thank f**k.

      I imagine Jürgen is pissed and will tell him to stay away from the club until his contract runs out.

      Imagine this useless c**t will have earned £8 million off the club for doing absolutely nothing by the time he leaves.
