      No mate just standard tabloid sh*t... Phil had his time, he engineered his move for bigger & better things & Klopp did warn him...

      Move on...

      I went out and did some digging...apparently there was a rumor (refuted by Simon Hughes) that Phil contacted Klopp and begged to take him back, supposedly saying he'd take a pay cut and a spot on the bench.

      Don't buy it personally, and even if he said that, I don't think there's any way we'd pay a transfer fee or his wages on loan even.....

      Id take Phil back with a few pegs knocked off his ego. Would wait to see the situation with De Bruyne beforehand though; regardless of finances, would guarantee the league for the foreseeable future.

      What does De Bruyne have to do with it?

      You're not suggesting he would join us surely?

      Phil would make a great alternative to Bobby, but he'd have to up his work rate.

      Do we still need a stretcher to accommodate his bad back?

      I honestly don't think he can be accomodated in the team.  I couldn't drop a first team player for him and I just don't think he grafts as much as anyone in the front three or the middle.

      I get the whole squad narrative but I think you could argue Emre Can as a replacement for Adam Lallana in the squad would fit better than Coutinho would.  Who's Coutinho replacing? Shaqiri?

      Find it a bit difficult to justify him returning, whether he will or not remains to be seen ?  Considering he seemingly could not wait to leave the club. What has changed so much ?

      No! Just looking at his face annoys me now. Made your bed. See ya!

      I'm not sure he replaces one of our front three, but I can see him as a good option in those games where we need a bit more creativity to unlock stubborn defences.

      Won't happen in a million years.

      Anyway our style of play ensures we always create chances no matter how stubborn the defence.

      This is why I hoped we would sign Werner as he is a natural goal scorer.
