      For every Mignolet , there is a Robertson.

      I agree to an extent. our first 11 is pretty good, though the midfield is getting upgraded (with keita and hopefully Fekir) and hopefully a  new goalkeeper.

      Defence has improved with VVD and Robertson.

      We need a bigger squad with extra quality. We proved last night in the first 25 minutes we could go head to head with the very best.

      I trust Klopp - his record in the transfer market is pretty good.

      our 1st 11 is pretty good, but we can vastly improve it as well, Keeper, Lovren, Central mid and our full backs have had good seasons, but im still worried about them - but i have much more faith in them improving than the likes of Lovren.

      Jonny Evans would be a massive upgrade on Ragnar and imho he is a better defender than Lovren.  He’s a leader and a very experienced international defender who has played at the highest level.  I think he would be a fantastic addition to the squad and I’m hoping that sooner or later Joe Gomez will get his opportunity in the centre also.

      He is on a par with Ragnar and nowhere near as good as Lovren.

      Nothing like an upgrade and too old and slow.

      F**k that, I'd rather stick with Ragnar & Matip as back up!!

      Before we got VVD and we were panicking about defence then maybe, but now, not a chance.

      100% yes if he is willing to be 3rd or 4th choice, £10k p/w wages and £5m to buy him!

      How's about Swansea's Fabianski as back up to our 'new' keeper?

      Sure they got relegated but he was solid.

      I beg to differ,  Evans is a better defender than Lovren.  He’s proven it on the international stage as well as at club level.  Ferguson rated him highly,  Wenger did and Guardiola clearly wanted him also.  A lot of you are struggling to get past the fact that he used to be a Manc.  At Euro 2016 Jonny Evans was a real leader at the back for N Ireland and had  great tournament

      Differ away.

      He still isn’t though. Nowhere near.

      Evans is bang ordinary. The fact that he’s a manc is irrelevant to my assessment.

      At this point with where we are, we needn't be shopping at relegated clubs. Let's weaken the stronger European clubs as much as we can, taking their top players.

      I think he's a bit better than ordinary but agree Lovren is a much better CB.

      Lovren is a much better players than he gets credit for and as been said on here before it's when he makes a mistake and then dwells on it for the rest of the game where his biggest problem is.

      Are you accusing me of hyperbole in the course of a joust Si........?

      How very dare you 😜

      Aye ok - I’ll cede he’s a wholly competent. I’ve just never thought he was good enough to be first pick at a top club.....injuries aside.

      Would I ever mate. ;D

      It's all irrelevant though as I'm sure as I can be that Evans won't be anywhere on Jürgen's radar this summer.

      Depending on the keeper situation, if we're not buying a new no 1 and sticking with Karius, I'd have a look at Ben Foster as back up.

      As I said depends on whether we decide to go with a new goalie.

      Depends on the player we're looking for. Who knew Robbo was going to be a revelation and he came from a relegated club!!

      True, but I’m getting at is that buying the best players from rivals (english or euopean) weakens them and strengthens us. And now we have the money and the stature to pull from anywhere.

      Disagree slightly as I don't think we'd be buying the absolute star players from the likes of Real, Barca, both set of Manc clubs, Chelsea, PSG.

      In terms of our targets so far, Fabinho is making a step up as would Fekir if we got him.

      Is like to see us try to nick a big name player though from another team. I suppose with all of the Bale rumors he’d do.

      Wonder if there was any truth to the rumor that Bale spent more time in our locker room than his own after the game.

      Sounds like it is, probably still mates with Lallana.

      Would love the rumour about Courtois to be true, but I don't it'll happen.

      Would be a handy squad player. I think with his pace he would excel in our system.

      Not convinced to be honest, agreed we need someone who can play out wide etc as back up but for me he didn't stand out in a poor stoke team

      When you consider that Moses guy that has been linked to us is £10 million then Shaqiri would be a steal for £12 million. Premier league experience, has pace and can play left,right or behind the striker. I think Klopp could get a tune out of him, if he's willing to sit on the bench and wait for a chance that is.
