      I have no idea about about how good he is but it will do us some good to finally have a left-footed Cb in the mix.

      Know nothing about him but we needed a CB so if he has been scouted by the club I’m sure he will do a job give him a few weeks to get used to the new system.

      On the basis of that I'm declaring him the new VVD. No, I mean he does actually look good there, although obviously any brain fart moments etc are not included.

      The fact he can play LB is a bit of a bonus. For £2m, seems more than worth the shot.

      Can he make the upgrade? Never seen him play but for 2 million if he does will be some transfer.

      I seem to remember a centre-back who started at Preston and ended up playing for us - pretty well, in fact.

      Name of Mark Lawrenson, if I recall correctly...... ;)

      Myself included, which is why people need to get off the ledge and let the club do its thing.

      Left-footed, pace, brings the ball out from the back and makes direct passes and can cover LB if Tsimikas is out.

      100%.

      I'm not one that's bothered about buying players like this as minimal outlay but the possibility you have a gem on your hands.

      Robbo is a perfect example of this.

      Preston fans seem to rate him and saying they're being shafted due to his length of contract. Hard on them but from a club POV if it all fails he will probably be sold on down the line at a 500% profit.

      Hopefully though it doesn't fail, he becomes a part of the squad for many a season.

      Celtic fans pissed off as they thought they had him signed.

      Looks good on the YT clip, all I can say is welcome to Liverpool.

      Was imagining what this lad is going through right now, one day all of a sudden and totally unexpected getting a call to play for Liverpool Football Club. That's a one in a lifetime opportunity, that's a bit like dunno NASA calling me tommorow and offering me a job.

      Can you give me an example of a player I flip flop on, weird Man Utd fan who spends all his time on a Liverpool forum?

      For example I've been fairly consistent on Origi not being good enough for us. I did say Trent and Bobby should be dropped a few weeks back but that was when they were both playing crap. I never said they were rubbish players, just that they were going through a bad patch, there is a big difference.

      BTW having a Man Utd fan constantly try to wind me up on a Liverpool forum is starting to get a bit too surreal for my liking so back off a bit, I think you have become a bit too comfortable on here lately.

      A lot of folk welcoming him to the club, has this been confirmed? Also, BBC graphic suggests we are looking at 2 defenders but doesn't expand much on who the other is, anyone have an idea? Been out the loop having no phone for the last 4 days.

      A lot of folk welcoming him to the club, has this been confirmed? Also, BBC graphic suggests we are looking at 2 defenders but doesn't expand much on who the other is, anyone have an idea? Been out the loop having no phone for the last 4 days.

      Duje Caleta-car and Sven Botman are the other two we're looking at mate.

      Hopefully we get one of them.

      Cheers mate. What's your thoughts on our chances with those 2? Davies seems like it is happening although it hasn't been confirmed yet, I understand.

      Welcome Ben, let's hope you have the same impact and effect Robbo has had on our Club. Under Jürgen's tutelage, who knows, you could become the 2nd best CB in the World in no time!

      I would say Car is about 75% possible depending on Marseille finding a replacement today. Botman about 50% as Lille are in financial difficulty and may need money.

      Can you give me an example of a player I flip flop on, weird Man Utd fan who spends all his time on a Liverpool forum?

      For example I've been fairly consistent on Origi not being good enough for us. I did say Trent and Bobby should be dropped a few weeks back but that was when they were both playing crap. I never said they were rubbish players, just that they were going through a bad patch, there is a big difference.

      BTW having a Man Utd fan constantly try to wind me up on a Liverpool forum is starting to get a bit too surreal for my liking so back off a bit, I think you have become a bit too comfortable on here lately.

      I've only been on this forum 12 years Heimy  :f_whistle: If you don't know me now you never will.  ;D  I can't really give you one example, maybe a dozen but certainly not one.  :lmao:

      I'm not winding you up pal, it's banter.  ;D Told you many times I enjoy reading your post, espically when your wumming fellow fans up.  ;D  chillax.

      If you'd rather me not comment on your post just say so and I'll stop, that or put me on ignore.  :f_wah:

      So you can't give me an example yet continue with your lies and wind-ups, its not banter mate, banter is based on at least a partial truth. I am sick and tired of this narrative that I am trying to wind people up when in fact its other people doing it to me.

      I generally enjoy your posts but for some weird reason you have decided lately to just go on the attack against me, I'm getting a bit tired of it to be honest.

      I'm not attacking you mate honestly, your head playing mind games.

      Will be great to see another Barrovian playing for us, don't think the last lad to play for us from Barrow did too bad! If Jürgen ever had a hard time understanding any of the scouser in the club he's in for a treat with the Barrovian dialect 😂

      It’s Ozan Kabak from Schalke. We working on paying a loan fee of around £2.5m to sign the centre-back, with an option to buy the player in the summer if Schalke can find a replacement for him this window

      Supposedly Car was at the airport ready to get on the plane to Manchester when Marseille pulled the plug because of no replacement.

      This looks done with Sepp van den Berg going the other way.
      Fingers crossed he works out.
      At 25 he should be pretty close to his peak.
      On paper, good business.

      Yup I read that, apparently he's not a happy boy the deal fell through but who can blame him.

      Honestly I'd never heard of the guy before yesterday so much more happy we're going for Kabak who I wanted us to sign in the Summer as a replacement for Lovren.

      Pleased with this deal and if his stats are anything to go by then he'll be a very good option for us until VVD comes back. With the Kabak deal pretty much done these 2 can get up and running straight away i think. Not too conserned that Davies is from the EPL and Kabak is in a really bad Shalke side, when you've got the best goalie in the world behind you and getting Fabinho and Hendo back into midfield then they'll have plenty of protection.

      With any luck, we've landed another Robbo.

      Remember the slating he got when he first came?

      A lot of humble pie was eaten once he found his feet.

      If this lad does half of that, he'll be a good signing.
      As ever, we'll see.

      One of my poker mates big Preston fan. He says that he's very good, never watched him before I asked if he was Premier league standard? His words, I don't know but hopes so. Apparently they turned down 4.5 million at the start of the season hoping he would sign a new contract.
