      Apparently there's a rumor that he's coming home. Instead of us taking the 50 mil we're still owed they would just give him back to us.....

      He just doesn't fit anymore imo. He's only 28, but he would have a hard time getting into this side. I'd rather have the money on a winger or MFer who fits our tactics






      I got mixed feelings about this, on one hand I’m saying yes get him in if he’s free, he’s still a quality player and could cover for Thiago, we do need two players for each position and he’s ideal for that, but on the other hand, there’s a part of me saying no, f**k him, he had his chance here, he had a hard-on for Barca and it went limp, that ship has sailed etc, but if he were to return to the prem, could he hurt us playing for someone else ?

      I’d rather he be in our squad than elsewhere, so IF it were to happen I don’t think I’d grumble too much if I’m honest, life’s too short to hold grudges, and you can’t really blame him for wanting to play at one of the biggest clubs in the world, it’s the manner in which he wanted to leave that kind of grinds my gears still, but cest la vie, which means ‘F**k it’ in French, he’d be good for us in our quest for the title, let’s do it .

      Decent enough player, when he was at Anfield, but surely not that desperate, to have him back, after he made it clear he wanted to leave !

      But we sold him to a third party so that money isn’t owed to us


      Eh ? Who is the money owed too ?

      I have no problem when a player wants to leave. It’s the way in which Coutinho did it that makes me never want to see him put on the Liverpool shirt ever again.

      Even though he won a bunch of stuff that year at Bayern, it gives me the warm fuzzies that the years he wasn’t loaned out it looked like it was terrible for him.

      I get both sides of peoples argument here and can't disagree tbh. Yeah he did force a move but let's face it that move from a career, respect, legacy pov whatever you want to throw in there apart from financially where he hit the jackpot the move has backfired. Klopp said he could have had a statue here and forget that CL win, that is as much value as Michael Owens PL medal.
      I'd take him back IF the transfer fee was below £30m and his wage was back down to what he earned previously, let Barca pay that off. Everyone raves about Bruno Fernandes I don't think he's better than Coutinho, I think he'd make a difference.
      All this said I'll still be amazed to see it happen.

      I agree, Coutinho was flying in Klopp’s system before he left. If we could get him mega cheap then it’s no brainer for me.

      Plus we have an amazing Brazilian cohort and he would feel comfortable instantly - helping him to get back to his best

      I would bring him back but on reduced wage for leaving us :)

      In January, I would play like this:

      Indeed. Important to remember as well is that the club has moved well beyond those three now. They had their moment.

      Well you'd think club has moved on and wouldn't have the snakes back. However, we do have snakes running our clubs so one can never be too sure. Yes, they had their moments and sh*te on the fans. "Well" all but bully boy who constantly wears his rose tinted glasses who support animals that bite.  :lmao:

      Definitely. The worst thing about those fans wanting Coutinho back are that they think he was some sort of world class player. In hindsight he never was and the fact that Liverpool propelled very quickly from the moment he left told us enough that he wasn't the essential player we thought he was. Remember, he was part of a lineup that lost 6-1 to Stoke.

      Pretty sure Jürgen said this at the time of Coutinho leaving:

      “Stay here, and they will build a statue in honour of you.
      Go to Real Madrid, Bayern, Barcelona, and you are just another player.”

      I think it all depends on the player, and what team they left you for.
      For examplet, if i was a united fan then i would never take tevez back but i would have let Ronaldo come back for a season or two.

      For us, i wouldnt take sterling back but id take coutinho and suarez back. They are south American and they dream of playing for barca or real. Thats if JK want them, im just saying that i wouldn't have anything against it.

       I know cou and suarez didnt leave peacefully and made a fuss but everybody makes a mistake in real life. If jk see potential in signing cou back then why not? No point in holding a grudge.

      Most of the players nowdays in modern day football are just mercenaries. Doesnt mean they dont respect the club or the fans but we as fans maybe over play it a bit when they kiss their badges after they score a goal.  Unpopular opinion i know but thats how i how see it.

      Spot on Ian.
      There is some chat in Spanish media about Barca proposing a return to LFC for Coutinho in lieu of fees owed from his 2018 transfer.
