      When we were run like a slick machine with Edwards at the helm, signings would have all but been done bar the signatures by now.

      Just a sign off the malaise running through the club with owners who wanted out but couldn’t get the asking price.

      Well apart from the illegal approach to VVD

      Also a number of early bids rejected by Roma for Mo

      Same with Mane

      Gini took two months to sign


      The two recent quickest signings sorted where Diaz and Gakpo - both done by Ward 🤔

      Where’s the proof?

      You think a back scan will show up anything 🤣

      FYI stress can tighten up muscles and back is full of muscles - so you have shown he was maybe telling the truth….🤭

      So the back injury miraculously healed to play for Brazil 🤔

      “But reports later emerged that the back injury that kept him out for the opening weeks was actually fake.

      The Independent said that scans revealed Coutinho had no genuine fitness problem despite complaints of back pain and that Liverpool made a decision to pretend the injury was real to lessen the disruption of the midfielder’s desire to leave.”

      If he was stressed at being at LFC then yes that tension could have bought on back pain.

      When I have had tight hamstrings they have caused back pain!

      Stop making a dick of yourself as usual you clearly know nothing about anatomy and physiology.

      Sticking up snippets from the Daily Express, claiming “reports suggest” - Express have no journalists close to the club!

      So you still can’t definitively proof that he didn’t have back pain!

      He may have been but you claimed he definitely was so I asked you to proof it so rather than admitting in this instance there is no way of disproving it you go on a long winded data trawl with bullshit quotes 😂

      😂😂 if you say so , the reports are there , if you don’t want to read them to try and score points crack on


      Guess it’s the same as you claiming that everything was smooth sailing under Edwards when a number of transfers didn’t 😂

      It's funny how when other people post "reports" you dismiss them and cry about how they are "throwing their toys out" but you can use whatever source you want to speculate more than anyone else.

      You are a joke poster pal. Posts full of logical fallacies and personal attacks left and right when people don't follow your line of thinking. Maybe show some grace for other people's opinions and stop dismissing them right away because you think they are hurling insults towards your precious owners.

      Klopp: the better the player the less desire for the team to let him go

      LFC Reds: Klopp needs to raise funds, dur


      Sound logic

      It is going to be a long summer with the muppet show in full force

      And just like that, another thread derailed.

      Wonder if anyone with authority will come in and tell people to stay on topic as this is the scouting thread.

      Nah.

      You got me on the last one, it’s much better now without Edwards 😂😂😂

      Pure comedy from this guy.

      Oh hello - you again

      Insults ? Personal attacks ?

      Lack of mirrors in your house then as that appears to be all you are doing at the moment

      And yes people throwing their toys about because of transfers is pathetic- and I’ll stick by that.

      Do you remember the initial approach to VVD 🤔

      So what’s the issue right now with Ward ? Which transfer has caused issues then ?

      Nah.

      It’s part and parcel of the modern phenomenon of the transfer windows

      Before players just arrived , we supported them and then we moved on

      Now it appears some take more interest transfers and gossip and rumours and reacting to everything - it’s seems to be the main domain of the modern social media fan

      Will always take everything with a pinch of salt until a player signs on the dotted line - then he gets the support. If a player goes elsewhere then he is irrelevant - the window isn’t even open and there are already people overreacting

      It’s an awful time and the sooner it closes and then we can get on with the stuff that matters

      Will be interesting to see what he is like this weekend

      Seen his name banded around and certainly would appear to be a Klopp type player

      Maybe it’s someone like him or Gravenburch

      Nah.

      Partakes in derailing the thread, then calls out people derailing the thread. You can't make this up. :D


      To the topic of this thread, I can see why people would be concerned when every journalist that reports on this team was talking about how we were going to have a big summer, and we were going to wrap up our business quickly. Now the focus seems to have shifted to it's going to take awhile and we should be patient, yada, yada, yada.

      I mean we have no choice to be patient because none of us are making transfer decisions, but it just seems odd that Klopp has to come out and make a statement about it. Typically he's always just left the transfer speculation to the bed wetters and we find out who we are buying the day we buy them.

      One reason I'm not so sure about this Mac Allister speculation. Goes against how most of our recent transfers have gone. If we get him fine, if we don't, I'm not going to be too torn up about it. The one I am torn up about is Bellingham. I think we are missing a major trick not doing whatever it takes to bring him to the club this summer.

      I believe he's an Ugarte alternative. Although from what I understand the price tag on this lad is around 40m or so which is quite steep for someone with very little to show for it at this point.

      Also if you read the "article" this is really clickbait cringe type stuff. Saying we have "interest" in him when it's just journo speculation based on the fact that we are looking for midfielders. Also if I'm not mistaken City have a buy-back clause.

      Yes - name a time when we “had” to sell to buy a player ?

      Coutinho wanted to leave so the club sold him and then used the money to improve the squad



      Well genius we havnt sold anyone for big bucks since , and coincidentally we Haven’t bought anyone for big bucks either , you can’t prove your theory same as I can’t prove mine , keep on plugging the fsg dream fella
