      Thank you NESV for this signing at a time of crisis.

      They actually signed this guy and Kabak 😂

      They could have possibly salvaged our season buy buying a decent CB at the start of the January window but they wanted to save money and bought who they did on the last day, minges

      They were happy to see us field Williams and Phillips regardless of the pain us fans would feel from the decline in performances.

      They didn't care because they thought Champions League qualification was a given. They didn't, in their wildest dreams, think we'll finish outside the top 4 which is a reality now.

      Maybe they banked on the ESL taking off and deemed a top 4 finish pointless?

      I've been calling these tight bas**rds out for years and I've been a scape goat of peoples support of them whilst ignoring the MAJOR signs that were in front of our eyes.

      I go as far back as the attempt to sign Willian or the Alex Teixera debacle. Purposely bidding way lower than what a club have publicly said they wanter for a player.

      A club said "we won't take any lower than 35m" so up rocks NESV with 18m. We missed out and they'd say "at least we were in the market to sign him". This happened far too often and I smelt a rat

      This player must be worse than Torben Piechnek if he cannot even make the bench. Utterly bizarre signing.

      Has to be the shittest player in training, if he can't even get on for 5 minutes a game, 2 weeks running, to deal with long balls and conceded corners!!!

      His transfer was very low risk, with the potential for some reward. And worst case scenario, some quick cash when we sell him for a profit in the summer.
      The lad must feel gutted though...

      I honestly don't know mate. Before we signed him, i went to their forums and their fans were raving how good cb he is.

      They said that he is very calm and intelligent defender. He is supposed to be a cb who dont panic with playing the ball on the ground either. Which is
      a rarity in lower leagues.

      So i was expecting alot from the lad, and was genuine excited to watch him play for us.

      If he is injured then it explains alot, but if he isnt then im worried why jk dont rate him.

      Don't mean this the wrong way but why?

      You're going off of biased Preston fans against our manager who sees him in training every day

      There's a massive difference between the championship and our level

      I imagine he was a panic buy, a gamble, which once we signed Kabak wasn't needed and as its turned out he's simply not good enough

      Imagine he will move on again this summer at a small profit

      Im not taking any sides. Im just saying that Preston fans were raving about the lad, and that made me excited.

      He may not be good enough, and im not pointing fingers at jk. Im just worried that one of the signing for cb we did, may not be good enough. Thats worrying imo.

      He did come with high praise from quite a few experts but interestingly even our own question last nights CB pairing which has been available all the time and they were really on it. We are nearly there and we can then look forward to getting our modern day Colossus back along with Joe and hopefully Joel . We then will have 4 or 5 of them to cover.

      Bet he's buzzing tbh, at least he has a chance of playing now... a transfer that should never have happened. Hope he does well for them and can get himself a move back to team he can play weekly. He is not LFC level but at Preston he was very decent at that level.

      Least will get a chance to show what he can do there, and get some games.
      I'd be interested to see him play at last :)
      Good luck to him.

      Commodity trading. With humans instead of metal.

      In hindsight not sure why they bothered filming the fancy arrival video during lockdown.

      Guess we can say now that the January signings weren't ones Klopp was keen on.
      Literally bodies in the door.

      Hopefully he gets a move and full time football.
