      Actually starting to wonder if the finances were as much of an issue as some of us (me included) made them out to be or if that's just the club negotiating through the media. Either way, hoping that there's no traction to Brewster leaving because that could ring the bell of "sell to buy" as I see no reason to sell Brewster at this point unless it's to raise money.

      See I'm not that bothered about sell to buy if it's done correctly and benefits us and helps grow for the future.

      I personally wouldn't sell Rhian but Jürgen sees him everyday and it could be even though he's a talent he just doesn't see a fit.

      If that money helps buy Thiago or even Start then I don't have an issue.

      Develop a talent to sell on at huge profit to grow the squad makes a lot of sense.

      Unless he decided he wanted to go to get a regular start!t

      If we got him, and Minamino and Keita really kick on, maybe we don't need another attacker

      Seems that Klopp thinks we do if the stories of him wanting Werner, and that deal being as close as it was meant to be to happening before COVID-19 struck are to be believed.

      Massive signing this. Clearly Jürgen's number one target this summer and it looks like we've finally got it done (with the Brewster cash I suspect).

      Can't really be arsed to speculate on who might be leaving in that midfield, just happy we've added a world class player who offers us something different in there.

      So it was the German media that were bang on, for weeks they’ve been saying we want him  whilst the English media said the opposite. Just again shows the English media know sod all about any dealings we are involved in.

      Massive signing and the quality we should be looking to bring in now we are at the top.

      I didn’t expect the move to happen and said so from the start so I’m relieved to have been wrong.


      I hope Robbo doesn’t play poker.

      He makes a very good allusion, that some people seem to get more excited about a transfer or even a potential transfer than they do about the team performing so well that they practically win the league by Christmas-time. Odd, that.

      Sheer f**king class. One of those compilation/skills videos that is actually representative of what you get every game from the player in question because I have to say that every time I've watched him live (all in all must be between 20-30 times in my life) this is the level he was at.

      I think I will never tire of watching him receiving the ball between 2-3 players and instantly beating their press with his first touch, literally leaving them in the dust, and following it up with a delightful through ball for a forward. The type of skill that reminds me why I love this game so much. He's not particularly fast but the fact that he knows what he's doing with the ball before it is even midway through to to him combined with the skill to pull such outrageous first touches...wow

      I'd like to point out that I think (I think) that his qualities are perfect for our style. Teams have been trying to sit in compact blocks and press us hard beyond a certain point on the field and then beat us on the counter. Gonna be fun seeing this guy smartly positioned to gain back possession after we lose it, break a 3 men press with one touch and pulling a through ball to Mane, Bobby or Salah against the run of play.

      What you there for? The storyline? See if the writers see the plot through from start to finish 😀

      Good disussion about him being the highest profile name we have signed. Thinking about it, its not far off.

      We signed many many top class players, but when we signed them they were not already in that top bracket of player, they became wotld claa here.

      Weve rarely signed, if ever, from another elite European club and while they are chzmpions of Europe.

      Rush back from Juve and arguably Kenny from Celtic are the only ones already in the top bracket but neither from the Elite at the time, Juve were starting the slide at that point.

      So its a unuque signing in that regard. Will it be the start of us going that direction?

      I'd say that both Virgil and Alisson were high profile when we bought them

      Neither from an elite club and arguably question marks on if VVD was noted as world class at Southampton?

      Agree Brian

      Virgil was very good at southampton but certainly had work to do, which he has done to become elite, the potential was there but it was still that at that time, hes now world class

      Alisson dont forget had only played one season in europe prior to signing for us, and again has now become world class he wasnt there when we signed him

      Thiago on the other hand has been thought of as world class for a few years, his trophy winning resume is astounding and hes leaving the current CL champions to sign for us

      Think that shows the level of the club right now, we have never signed anyone so established at the elite level

      Back on topic, Where's the flight tracker? Has he taken off yet? Whos staking out John Lennon? The lack of dedication from the fans in this saga, is deafening.
