      Needs to self isolate again...

      Hmm, if I didn't know better I'd think that was a WUM comment.

      Thanks for the insult after I politely asked for clarification, I still don't know what your point was, have you forgotten yourself?

      I haven't mate, just the way you ask questions sometimes it's very difficult to work out if you are being obtuse to get an argument going.

      My point is in the current climate, I hope I don't need to explain this, I think the club and Jürgen will think twice before spending huge amount of money on footballers.

      We got massive criticism for furlouging or staff and along with other media own goals over the years I think the club will be very aware of how it will look if we start splashing millions of pounds on players after deciding to use a government grant to pay our own staff.

      Word is Si  Klopp will get shut of 3 players to raise the £52m fee for Werner.
      No more than paper talk really.

      I saw that article and it was just more pissing in the wind by journos. All they’ve done is list the 3 players most likely to be sold for any significant amount of money; Shaqiri, Wilson and Grujic. A 12 yr old could easily have come to that conclusion and wrote that article.

      Ah ok, thanks I disagree or do you suggest that all businesses cease doing investments after this lockdown is over? Anyway didn't the club reverse that furlough thing?

      I haven't suggested any business stop doing anything, just what I 'think' might happen at our club.

      I could very well be wrong but just have a feeling those at the club will be thinking about how splashing millions of pounds on players might look and also may wait to see if the market shrinks any over the course of the next period.

      And yes they did reverse the furlough but only because pressure made them do it.

      The only thing our owners will be thinking about splashing money about is how it will afect the balance books and f**k all else

      Precisely the reason "paper talk" was indicated, the premise that any monies resulting from the sale of those 'surplus to requirements' is on the other hand worthy of discussion.

      As you said in the other thread in transfers, the likes of Curtis Jones add to that Harry Wilson back from Bournemouth and Rhian Brewster will probably get a push up to first team squad for next season whenever that will be!

      The finish on the first was good, the 2nd was just a tap in and the third was a nice lob of the keeper after a long free kick caught the Mainz defense unaware.

      Lopsided game for sure, but Timo looks like he could fit in nicely.

      Also of note, Taiwo Awoniyi, our loan player to Mainz, played the final 30 minutes and was maybe the only player to look like causing Leipzig any problems in the back. Not saying he belongs in our 18 and I don't think he's ever going to get a work permit, but you can see why somebody signed him a few years ago. Has some good attributes.

      Honigstein is pretty reliable for German news, think he has a good relationship with Klopp if I remember correctly.

      Still skeptical the club will want to spend that kind of money in this climate. But who knows.

      Knowing Nike they would want a Marquee signing... kid fits the bill... I think the club/owners have plenty in the tank financial..

      If the AFCON is still scheduled for January then we might not have a choice.

      Losing Salah and Mane with our current attacking options as it is will be absolutely massive.

      The March qualifiers have been moved to August/September and the June ones to October so I wouldn't be surprised if the competition itself gets moved closer to summer. Plus, Egypt aren't doing too well in their group, they're not far behind but they need a couple of wins.
