      Big fan of Adam he would be a great squad player filling in when required and doing a great job. I just don't see him playing 40 or 50 games a season like he did 4 seasons ago its been about 20 since then. He isn't going to play a full season with any club is he so why leave unless its down to money and at 31 he really should have enough tucked away to be able to stay here and add silverware to his career

      In all seriousness what is it you like about Adam compared to our other midfield options? I don't mean that as any kind of wind up I really am curious what it is I'm missing regarding his contribution.

      They have Tielemens, Praet and Maddison who all play similarly to Adam so perhaps they're anticipating a departure.


      Maddison is supposedly Man u bound with him being a fan and all that.

      Barely featured this season to be fair. Played the least minutes out of all our midfielders.

      Hardly though if Leicester finish top 4 and Mancs don't.

      Unless he's a greedy f**ker.

      It's ok. Mbappe to take his place on the bench after that. :f_tongueincheek:

      quite often these days what players do off the ball is almost as important as when they do have it. Klopp loved Lallana because he was always first to start the press. He isn't the same as other midfield players we have we are not comparing him to them if you don't recognise what he has brought when fit over many seasons now then I am not the one to educate you.

      Why the defensive childish reaction? It was an honest question, so it's the pressing you like, it seems Jürgen disagrees, he's certainly a long way down the pecking order lately.

      Yes. He's one of the first to understand Jürgen's pressing and did that effectively. Ask any of our players and they'd tell you it's very difficult to get the ball off him. Indeed a valuable option off the bench. I get excited when he comes in knowing full well that he could hold up the midfield. And that last minute Norwich goal. I can never forget.

      You've got it all wrong, mate. Mbappe will take Shaq's place on the bench. Kai Havertz will take's Adam's seat.  ;D

      Which begs the question, where are Sancho and Werner going to sit?

      I think it's more to do with the depth of our bench tbh. When you have Ox, Origi, Keita, Milner, Shaqiri, you can't imagine Lallana getting too many games. I still like him as an option and it's true about his work rate, he's high pressing non stop whenever he comes on. Plus he does have a little bit of creativity and the occasional goal in him. It's a nice option if he's happy to carry on getting 10-15 appearances off the bench. I suspect he'll want the last couple of years of his career playing regularly in a club like Leicester or Wolves etc. though.


      He is a player that never fulfilled huge potential though

      Don’t think he will play regularly at either Leicester or a Wolves. If he wants regular game time week in week out, then he’s going to have to drop down to the relegation area of the league IMO. People expected the likes of Jay Rodriguez to be a regular at Burnley but he isn’t and even teams like Brighton are benching players like Gross who are no worse than Lallana. Going to have to go to a team like Bournemouth if he wants to play virtually every week.

      Lallana should leave ASAP. He reached his peak some some months then got injured, other than that, he was a flop for me, because he was unreliable.  Not good enough for the team now, given the squad we have.

      If he goes, we'll always have Norwich.

      Just watched the highlights of the 5-4 game back on BT and still puts a smile on my face, especially seeing the realisation dawn on Jurgens face that his glasses are fu**ed!
