      So we only have a decent transfer strategy whenever we sell a big player?

      Who do people want to back up Robertson like Marcelo?

      He’ll probably play 7 games max.

      Just happy we now have cover in a position we didn’t have cover in last season.

      No one wants Marcelo you divvy.

      We do realise it's a position we're lacking back up for though if that helps la!!

      Addressing an area of need, if Klopp likes the kid that works for me. Admittedly never seen him play.

      We don’t need to buy someone that’s better than Robbo (good luck with that), we just need to buy someone that can develop to be as good as Robbo one day.

      We bought a very under rated Andy Robertson for £8m from Hull, he has become imo, one if not the best attacking LB’s this side of Ursula minor, I think it’s safe to assume that our scouting department is in pretty good shape, ......it’s NOT about how expensive or inexpensive a player is or isn’t, it’s whether said player (a) will fit a Klopp system, (b) is a good replacement without too much disruption, and (c) and perhaps more important Jürgen likes what he sees and likes the players capabilities,

      It’s F**kin simple, if Jürgen likes the boy, then that’s good enough for me, you don’t question the best manager on the planet or his decisions after he has brought about a League Title, A  6th  Champions league trophy and the two other tin cups we acquired inside 5 years of his tenure.

      Nothing in bringing a back up left back

      We have though pulled out of other players we had lined up because we now apparently can't afford - Champions of england, champions of europe and champions of the world, but apparently cant spend anything of note unless we sell. That's not great in my opinion
      Hopefully we can find back ups for those positions too for next to nothing as well

      Whatever about Werner I agree with you on that but it’s not as if Lewis is some sort of world beater, 20 million Norwich were asking for ? Is he really worth that to sit on the bench and give Robertson a rest in the cups ?

      This nail on head, Jamal Lewis is probably no better than this Greek lad so why pay double for the same quality, that would be fecking stupid.!!

      Also those winging about this, what if being able to get this lad for £10m as opposed to £20m for Lewis gives us the extra cash needed to keep Keita AND get Alcantara?

      Find me the post where Klopp said he wanted Werner, as far as I know the supposed interest  was all from the media, it seems to me that if Klopp really did want him he would have got him, our owners would not have stood in his way, COVID or not,

      As good as Timo is, there was no guarantee he’d would have slotted in without having to change stuff around up top, and therefore perhaps changed the dynamic of how we play, do you honestly believe that JW & Co let Jürgen know he couldn’t get his man cos we’re skint  ?


      I’m of the opinion that Jürgen would rather promote from within rather than spend millions when spending millions isn’t necessary, it could well be he is looking at how Brewster fares, and then make decisions necessary, is it possible that the three amigos we have currently have another one or two seasons in them before wielding the axe, I think we should just let’s see what happens, trust in Jürgen , he seems to know what he’s doing ?

      The argument seems to be that we aren't spending enough money. I don't get the train of thought at all. It's not how much we spend it's what the player does when he signs.

      We could sign a forward out of some backwater club in Uzbekistan for ten bob and a box of cauliflower and I wouldn't give a shiny sh*te, I'd trust Jürgen to do his thing and turned him into a worldy.

      Dear god. Of course he will say it publically wont he and risk getting done for tapping up

      But the way Werner went on publically flirting, the stories that Jürgen had spoken to him privately

      Absolutely abundantly clear he wanted him

      We have spent next to f**k all net since they have been here. What is it? About 70m under Jürgen?

      Its great on one hand, it shows simply how good Jürgen is but really, try to convince yourself Jürgen didn't want Werner if you like

      F**k me, there’s some negative people on here. Just won the league etc. If you can’t trust Klopp and his team NOW you never bloody will. They’ve identified the choice of two back up LB’S, and look’s like they’re getting there man. Where did we get Robertson from and for how much?.I like many was a bit uninspired by it, but it’s probably the signing that made me trust Edwards the most. Right behind them I am.

      Simple fact is with Werner before the pandemic shutdown it is very likely he would have signed but because of the on going pandemic and the ongoing financial issues then we offered less for a player than Leipzig valued him at so Chelsea offered him more money and his club an acceptable fee. Like it or not the pandemic has affected us and many other clubs  spurs taking out loans, arsenal laying off staff and Barcelona ruling out big signing.

      Oh for heavens sake have you never heard of agents and how they use one big club to get a better transfer price and wages for their client and the selling club. I think Werner was mostly paper talk, its certainly not "Absolutely abundantly clear" Klopp wanted him.  I imagine its possible Klopp would have liked him for a good price but when Chelsea came in and offered silly wages then it was a Nein Danke from Jürgen.

      As clear as the sh*te spouting from yer hole pal, show me the evidence then if it was absolutely clear he was wanted, you know sometimes it’s beneficial to engage your obvious inept brain cells before operating that hole in your face,
      It’s Absolutely clear to me he wasn’t wanted or we would have seen him holding a scarf above his head before the flip flops came out,
