      No Signings, but...
      Jul 27, 2019 09:35:35 pm
      Pepe going to Arsenal.

      Bruno going to Utd.

      Clubs strengthening around us, and we seem to sit tight, happy with our lot. We're European champions after all.

      And like a lot of the fan base I started to feel a little anxiety. We've been here before. We need cover for X, Y and Z. We need a big signing to push our lads on, etc etc.

      But when you look at it harder, I start to feel more calm.

      Minus City, every other rival needed strengthening, badly. Arsenal where a shambles last year, and are still going into the season with Mustafi and Koscielny on strike.

      Utd still have Jones, Smalling, De Gea on the decline, and an over rated striker (Rashford) and a useless one (Lukaku)

      Chelsea have lost their most influential player of the past 5 years minimum, with no re reinforcements

      Spurs have strengthened, but not in areas where they actually need (Kane then who?)

      We have lost no one. We are a year together stronger. We have players back after a year out. Players who want to prove. Young players exciting enough to be compared to God himself.

      I'm optimistic, and now after thinking hard, not worried.

      I'm ready for battle.

      Let's go.

      ..... we didn't lose anyone.

      Its a gamble IMO but a gamble where the management know more than me, so  we have to go with them!

      Admit it everyone, you've missed the total mauling of syntax that somehow still fails to hide the complete absence of logic from the offered arguments. It's like there's been a reincarnation on the forum.

      So in summary, we've not strengthened, and our rivals have. This is a positive. Somehow, this makes it better.

      Reminds me of the time when some here were trying to claim that dropping points and losing our place at top of the table was also a positive.. and placed us in the perfect position. We all know how that ended.

      Keep trying though..

      I didn't know Everton & Utd had been out bulk buying?

      Chelsea have a transfer ban. City so far only bought Rodri and Arsenal might buy Pepe.

      So we need start panicking because of this.

      Go and have a lie down.

      They have strengthened, but none of them have actually strengthened the fundamental problem in there teams, like we did last year in VVD and Allisson.

      And where's this £50 million rated player gonna play? Who's he gonna replace? Do we sell one of the front three when this £50 million rated player is so f**king boss!!

      Or stop fretting about money we will or won't spend, wait until the big guns are back and then see where we are at!

      "No Signings, but..."

      This is like the "One, plus Solanke" narrative from 2 seasons ago.

      The club hasn't made a marquee signing, but let's not make stuff up.

      Signed:

      Sepp van den Berg (PEC Zwolle)
      Harvey Elliott (Fulham)


      Left the club:

      Alberto Moreno (Villarreal)
      Daniel Sturridge (Released) 
      Danny Ings (Southampton)

      Moreno barely got a sniff of football last season.
      Sturridge was clearly behind Origi during the second half of last season.
      Ings was already on loan at Southampton.

      Ox & Brewster effectively missed all of last season.
      Larouci looked promising at LWB before being assaulted.

      We'd all love a marquee signing, but some of the social media stuff has been ridiculous.
      Hard to improve on a team that just got a club record amount of points in the PL & won the CL.

      Klopp has shown he's prepared to wait for the right player to become available.
      Sometimes that means short term pain for long term gain.
      Would much rather that than what went before, when recruitment was scattergun.
      Effectively took an extra year to get van Dijk & Keita deals done.

      If we're after who I think we're after then I can wait another year if it means it gets done.
      Though I appreciate we live in an age where everyone wants the new shiny signing and wants it now.

      that's just nonsense. Which player hasn't improved under the coaching of Jürgen and his staff the collective improvement of players is how Jürgen gets things done.

      Moreno didn't improve, nor did Clyne or Sturridge, Lallana also hasn't really improved.
