      It’s like Saints just wanted us to struggle defensively for another few months before letting us have him.
      We never offered 75m in the summer. It was 60 something. 64m if I remember right.

      We never made an offer....Chelsea offered 60 and was rejected by the player.

      It's OK we took them to the cleaners on Mane and tidied up Roma's suit also with Salah....all works out in the wash.

      Exactly FSG OUT!!!! overpaying for non-whitened teeth...that immediately decreases the value of the player

      I’m dumbfounded that we pushed this through.....but wow. Great sign of intent. We shore up this defense and we don’t have a half bad shot at #6 (big ears)

      No surprise really for me, said it since the summer that we'd get him in January, why else would you not buy a 2nd target after bidding £60m on a defender?

      And for people moaning about the price piss off. Pay £75m not just for a defender, he's a leader and will put the defence on lockdown.

      Anyway welcome to the club lad, fix our defence and we are up there with the best

      Finally.
      Klopp has his man and hopefully we have few less sleepless nights and nails on our fingers.
      Gotta believe that it’s going to VVD and Matip as first choice pairing
      Gotta sort out the keeper situation next and we will be in a far better position.

      So we don’t pay the asking price and end up missing out on a player to another team and the fans slate the club for not spending the money to get the player.

      The club doesn’t f**k about, gets a deal done straight away and that’s still not good enough?

      Some people are too bothered about finding a way to have a dig at the club in one way or another.

      Well Coutinho is going and we all know that...so I suppose you could use that argument on every player if it serves your purpose.

      That’s not quite what I was getting at. More the whole reporting us thing, categorically ruling any move out and us still having a sh*t defence early season

      Basically it was an attempt at light hearted humour but obviously it went missing

      This guy and Keita are going to be such brilliant additions.

      Crazy money for a CB, but everything's mental these days.

      If we keep Coutinho until the summer that's fine because I remember reading that we didn't need to sell Coutinho to buy players!

      No reason to think we are letting him go this Winter...we are pushing in the league...in the hunt in CL and he is cup tied....holding on to him this Summer would have made zero sense to let him go this Winter...I still think we see Lemar this window or Summer...he is Coutinho's replacement.
