      Maybe journalists have got tired of the thiago story with hundreds of stories and no references.

      Well I mean the SkySports story does say that Brewster was ''almost like a new signing'' for us  after recovering from his injury which is odd considering he played what? 2 or 3 times for us after the injury before being sent on loan?

      Doesn't look like top notch journalism if you ask me but we'll see I guess.

      Saw this yesterday or the day before, in the Mirror, I think.

      Laughed at it and moved on.

      The frenzy is even more artificial this year because they know everything is toned down bc of the pandemic. Ridiculous

      So, according to the press liverpool are open to selling brewster, a player who has done nothing at the top level, for 20m quid.

      Yet only at the start of the year dortmund paid 18m for erling haaland, who has been banging goals in at the top level for 18 month / 2 years.

      Yeah OK. Seems like nobody wants our fringe players so the emphasis has changed to 'who can we sell to raise some pennys' . Ive no real opinion on brewster, but we made a big effort to keep him and the feeling was that he was highly regarded. So what's changed.

      According to to the echo we are happy having 3 centre backs, 2 of which are made of glass plus fabinho.

      And if brewster goes its just origi to back up the front 3 and maybe minamino as AOC and shaq are always injured.

      I'm with Jürgen all the way but I'm concerned.

      Would be surprised if we offloaded Brewster, it's a long season, he's got some proper league experience under his belt, knows how to score, and is improving.
      Like, if we sell him, are we really going to then go get Sarr or some other attacking mid/striker - I'm not sure, especially if Minamino comes out of his shell, and Jones is starting to show he can do a PL job.
      Think its too soon to be selling him.
      Think its more likely Wilson, Grujic and maybe one or two others [eg. Gini before out of contract] might be in line first.

      Agreed mate.

      Obviously if Jürgen feels he doesn't fit then fair enough, who am I to disagree with Jürgen but, and this will be considered sacrilege by some, if it's one out, one in, then I'd rather lose big Div I'm afraid.

      A scorer of highly memorable, legendary goals at massive times for us but in general play he disappoints way too much and conversely Rhians general play looks to have the potential to be way above Div, soz Div.

      If it's not one out, one in, then keep both of the little shits, it's not my f**king budget. 😁

      I'd be surprised and dissapointed if Rhian is loaned out or sold, how Origi still has a place in our team is a huge mystery to me.

      Works hard
      Ability to get key goals
      Slots into the system seamlessly without having to change approach
      Brilliant attitude and popular member of squad which Jürgen puts a hell of a lot of belief in


      As for Rhian, I'd also be surprised if he goes but I honestly dont see us selling him

      I'll be the first to salute Origi for some very key goals he has scored but hand on heart are you ever excited when you see Origi come off the bench in a game, do you think, wow now things are gonna happen?
      I want game changers sat on the bench, but these days if our starting XI don't play well then we are a bit fu**ed, certainly in terms of attack.

      Origi can play multiple positions. Rhian is an old school inside the box number 9. I hope he works, but he doesn't seem to make a lot of sense outside of the 4-2-3-1

      Yes he can, but to what affect? He played 42 games last season, in a few different positions and managed 6 goals and 4 assists.

      The season before he played 22 games with 8 goals and 2 assists.

      Origi can play different positions but the return of him doing so is minimal and doesn’t suggest he’s a particularly good option. Obviously the year before he got some vital goals and that’s probably what he will feed off now for the remainder of his career because it’s not something I can see him being able to repeat. And again, his vital goals like against Everton, Barca etc, they were in and around the 6 yard box, a position you would expect to find Brewster.

      Origi was given more game time last season based on the season before but he didn’t show anything to suggest he’s worth keeping and playing ahead of Brewster who is an unknown quantity on the whole.

      Think the "in the box 9" will be needed in games this season so cant understand the talk of selling him. Unless things are going on that we wouldnt be aware of.

      Think if he stays hell be important over the course of the season.

      I'd play him or Minamino instead of Bobby, who is still in shocking form, ok might mean a tweak to the formation but so be it, we can't keep carrying Bobby game after game.

      Ask Mo or Mane if we carry Bobby, he is essential to how they operate

      So they need someone who doesn't score goals, gets caught in possession and misplaces passes, how odd.   BTW I'm not debating that Bobby is not a crucial player for us WHEN he is playing well, but when he is playing garbage like he has done recently, then there must be other options.

      I'd say Bobbys contribution off the ball is just as, if not more important than his on the ball stuff. If he's having a bad day with his touch and passing, he'll still be unrelenting with his pressing and running into areas that create space for Mo and Mane.
      Bobbys issue is he is too football smart for most of us to even understand the importance of what he is doing.

      LOL, what nonsense, Bobby is capable of having a bad day just like everyone or are you seriously suggesting that even on a sh*t day he's brilliant???

      Apparently, Chris Wilder really wants Brewster on loan for the season and made a ''detailed pitch'' to try and convince Klopp that it's the right destination for Brewster.

      Based on the opening 20minutes of their game, I think Brewster might be better off going on loan elsewhere!
