      I just feel like we can probably do better for the money they'd try to recoup. Unless we got him for peanuts, I don't think it would even be justifiable.

      Don't Barca need to dramatically reduce their wage bill?  I'm pretty sure Cou is on massive wages.  They may be willing to sell him cheap just to shift the wages -- most of their new signings this summer will all be free (Gini, Aguero, Garcia, and Depay) so they may be more concerned about reducing operating expenses than netting a big fee.  And Cou will likely be willing to take a pay cut just to end his Catalan nightmare. 

      I'm not pining for him to return, but if it makes sense for us as a club then I'm all for it.

      Fortunately we have a manager who will make decisions based on knowledge of what he thinks his squad needs. I think he really liked Phil but do we need him now we have Jota who I am really excited to see next season

      How would you rate him against some of the "dead wood" as it is described, being reportedly offloaded ?


      Not the point though, Stuey, is it, even I agree with you that Phil could do a much better job than the "dead wood" in our midfield. So could dozens of other players.

      it'd be a retrograde step. He hasn't even got a natural position in our set-up, he's not an 8 and he's not a wide forward (same goes for Ox actually), so we'd be buying back an expensive square peg who told us to f**k off a few years ago, and trying to stick him in some round holes. Can't for the life of me see why we'd want to do that.

      Yes we need a new midfielder in, but we don't need Phil, we need a round peg for round holes, and it wouldn't hurt if this new player was 5 years younger than Phil as well.

      50 million? I've heard 25 and 30 also. What requirements didn't he meet in order to still owe the club money  mate?

      We're basically being offered him for that amount!!

      If club said tomorrow he was being resigned, I'd take that.
      Didn't like how he angled for an exit - but at the end of the day, his leaving paved the way for VVD and Ali.
      We signed the guy for 9million quid, next to nothing, he was a super player for us and made us a fair few bob when he left.
      Still only 28 I think, and after having some poor years, would say he'd come with a point to prove.
      Think he's a super player, great to watch - he'd be a big help vs bus parkers.

      I wholeheartedly agree. Thats the way to see it imo. Id rather us go for pedri or fati because of their economy. That said if jk wants cou back, then il cheer him on.

      Pretty much where I'm at.

      Not desperate for him back here but of he wanted and Jürgen was keen then for me he's still a fantastic footballer.

      apparently we sold the debt to someone else so we have been paid as far as Phil is concerned and the people who hold the debt will want payment in full or they will send the boys in.

      Completely agree. Coutinho would obviously be a big upgrade on Origi or Shaqiri, but he's not an ideal fit for the team for various reasons.

      Imagine prime Coutinho on this team against bus parkers...

                   Alisson
      Trent Matip VVD Robertson
                   Fabinho
            Thiago    Coutinho
      Salah      Firmino      Mane

      + Henderson, Keita, and Jota off the bench.

      That’s what his contract is about when we sold him, less appearances in completions the less we get paid..

      I’m Hearing they gave him the #10 shirt..?
