    Might have to do with CP being second on the schedule and not wanting to play him.

    The Bentekkers and Sakho show. It was bad enough with Sakho on the sideline for CP last year.

    Mor has not shown the attitude required to reach is potential apparently and frankly he has not progressed one bit. I don't think he will ever fulfill the potential. Immensely talented, incredible skill, but just not smart enough to ever make a real impact on the highest level imo.

    Henderson, Wijnaldum, Lovren and Mignolet are all more than good enough, and still improving. Can I'm still on the fence about but we'll see as time goes on. I don't think he's a smart enough player to be someone who helps Liverpool push to the title or win trophies but I think he can be a good depth piece.

    Pretty much. They're asking for more than 30M for a player they deemed as inferior to anything they had.
    Everyone knows they want to get rid of him so obviously, they'll lowball them til they get him for dirty cheap.

    Everyone knew Liverpool wanted to get of Benteke and they still broke even.

    Luan, the best player in Brazil right now (also the best player in the Olympics out-playing Gabigol and Jesus), close to a move to Spartak Moscou for 20m euros. Really strange that no team from the big markets went after him, he's money. All arounder foward (can also play as an attacking midfielder) similar style to Firmino but has a better shot and is a really good FK taker.

    Could also mean that Promes will move in the next window.

    Yeah I really disagree with that....

    If Liverpool wants to be a longterm top4 team they need to replace these guys in their first 11.

    These guys are not good enough for a top level team.

    Gary Jacob is saying Southampton are adamant that Van Dijk will not be sold this summer and are apperantly prepared to leave him out of the squad during the season.

    BVB should ask for 1.5B euros for Dembele. Make it clear he is not for the selling

    This is why I get upset at Liverpool fans. Again, you lose your best player, and again, you think the team will be a top club. Like, get out of here.

    Coutinho isn't Liverpool's best player. Let's get that clear. But because he is from Brazil and plays midfield while scoring and assisting a lot he is of extreme value to any purchasing club.

    Arsenal's starting XI in game 1 of the 2016-2017 Premier League season against Liverpool.

    Sanchez
    Iwobi-Ramsey-Walcott
    Coquelin-ElNeny
    Bellerin-Chambers-Holding-Monreal

    Against a full Liverpool starting XI. Liverpool barely won. Is why Arsenal finished behind you guys. Simple as that.

    I like him because of how much his existence irritates the Liverpool fans on here.

    Losing the game at Anfield didn't help you lot either.


    If the season started today, with the rosters as they are, Liverpool will not finish in the Top 4.

    Not really sure how that is ethical or legal, but it just means no one besides LFC will pay their price tag, and they are being spiteful.

    Liverpool is exponentially better at selling players than they are at buying players.

    Their front office is a joke.

    Are you serious? Liverpool is doing something similar with Sakho.

    Do you even read anything people post? (I would say no).


    To spell it out for you, even with him, I think Liverpool will struggle to be in the top 5. It's not impossible, but I don't expect that their defense is good enough. They need a center back and probably a midfield who can attack without losing Coutinho. Adding VVD, staying healthy (they're already not) and they have a shot. But it's a crap shoot.

    They're going to score goals and Klopp is a better manager in getting something out of players deemed mediocre than most around him, but they're a player or two short without taking away one of their better players.

    If this is true and if Athletic's CBs are off the table as well, I would like to see them go after Lemos. But yeah, adding another quality defender is ideal

    Arsenal lost a lot of matches because their squad wasn't good enough and their manager has lost the plot. They had injuries and their defense is mediocre. What's new?
