      As much as i like Matip, i was of the opinion we should trigger Kabak's buy clause (18 milly) and sell Matip which would have greatly covered that amount, but Klopp does not seem to agree with me since Kabak is a goner and Matip is staying.
      I would've been happy with us keeping Matip and signing both Kabak and Konate simply for the fact that Gomez and VVD's road back to regular football might be a bumpy one and will maybe require some rotating in that department for the first half of next season.

      Of course this works out the same if Klopp considers Kabak not a good fit or that he simply wont get the playing time he requires to develop and he prefers to have Philips instead. I've got to say the lad (Philips) impressed me. Hopefully this means that the money we save on Kabak will be put towards other deals.

      I don't know if the style of our league has something to do with it but some players seem to transform into very injury prone guys soon after making the move to the prem. I also think maybe Klopp's style of play and training requires robust players as opposed to other styles. It would be interesting to get the opinion of somebody in the sports medicine field on why a guy will be perfectly alright in a league/team, move to another one and suddenly double or triple his number of injuries.

      I’ve often wondered whether if you were to take away the astronomical wages and then transplanted the mentality of a Tommy Smith or an Emlyn Hughes into some of these players whether that might not make a difference.

      It might sound cynical as obviously no player wants to be injured and some injuries are unavoidable, but equally there is a at least an element of personal responsibility in keeping yourself fit, strong and healthy, training to prevent injury, and being psychologically resilient enough to bounce back. Perhaps it is just all down to the increased speed and intensity of the game but I can’t help wonder how mentality fits in.

      Honestly, I can't say I've ever seen Konate play.  But, if Jürgen is happy to stump up double the fee for him than we would have spent on Kabak then that's pretty much all I need to know. 

      Also, just my opinion but based on the way Rhys and Nat played the last 8 weeks I'm not disappointed to not be signing Kabak. 

      If we are going to hang onto Matip -- who is a phenomenal player on the rare occassion he is fit -- then I think we will either be selling Nat or loaning out Rhys.

      Watched some youtube highlights of Konate the other day...holy sh*t man. He's Virgil part 2 if you go by those highlights. If he stays fit (why do we constantly have to say that?) they are going to be a formidable pairing.

      Hopefully 3rd time lucky when it comes to Red Bull signings.
      Wasn't overly impressed any time have seen him but he's an athelete and is young and Jürgen must rate him - so if it gets over the line, fingers crossed for him.

      Could be a good buy but his injury record worries me somewhat. Time will tell I guess.

      They're selling and we chose to buy. Our problem if he does turn out to get injured a lot.
