      Would be an upgrade on Calamitous Karius for sure.

      The thought of his big nosed c**t old man following us around the country appeals to my slightly warped sense of humour

      Yussuf Poulsen is the poor man's version of Firmino tbh.

      I've always liked him as a keeper but would he come to us?

      Ante Rebic from Croatia lookes useful as a winger.

      I've always liked Perisic. What a player. Smart, quick thinking, flair, equally dangerous on both legs. Will play AM, the wings or even the CF position as needed.

      I like the look of Ziyech he had a relatively quiet game but looks quick and good technically.

      Could be a good plan B for AM.

      If he had talent, he'd be amazing :D

      Watched him for RBL a bit and he's so frustrating. Tactically smart but talent-wise he lacks so much.

      I've just looked on his Wikipedia page. He directed the video for the Iceland entry into the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest. This is a deal breaker for me, we have to get this done. He can make Brendan Rodgersesque videos of Klopp shouting at kids and playing manly envelope games instead of telling them to their faces. He could be the director of the new 'Being Liverpool' - The Sequel.

      This is too good to be true.  :f_tongueincheek:

      Liverpool Echo also reported that there was a strong link between Halldorson and the club as he was a work experience kid at Channel 9 when Harry Kewell announced his move to the club. All the pieces are falling into place...

      Lozano. Said it before world cup. Everton were trying to get him and we haven't shown enough interest. It's ridiculous.

      Relax will you.

      We haven't done so bad with our signings the past couple seasons have we?

      The two young players who have impressed me the most so far are Golovin for Russia and Lozano for Mexico.

      Senegal has some interesting players, Niang (FW) would be good for us as depth.

      Sane and Koulibaly are rock solid at the back (CB’s), Kouli is to expensive I guess but wouldnt mind us looking into Sane^^

      Of the many good things that Houllier taught us it is not to sign players on the back of a World Cup.

      Tbf on that one, we had the deals done for Diouf & Diao before the World Cup started.

      Still agree with the sentiment though!

      Know what you mean, i was thinking more Le Tallec, Pongolle.  :D :D :D

      Not having a go at Houllier, was just making a point about signing players off the back of tournaments.

      Absolutely love Houllier, a great man who brought us some great times. He loved this Club and still does. We do that to people.
