    Good let him rot on the bench.

    Also waiting for Evilo to come in here and rip on Klopp and to compare this to Sakho somehow.

    I think that has been made abundantly clear from several clubs regarding anti-bullying. However if Liverpool were proactive they would be able to reinvest and improve the team. If there is a Godfather offer (that they can't refuse) they should take it provided they can replace effectively.

    I think the way the transfer market is going is that teams are going to keep their long term signed players unless their release clauses get tripped. Teams are going to have to pay the full release clauses because people aren't going to negotiate any more.

    Speaking of Sakho, West Brom apparently back in the mix.

    I think it's fair to ask how Sakho is rated when the likes of Palace and West Brom are the only ones linked.

    He wants Palace and for some reason West-Ham.

    Best Sanchez in North London.

    I find it really weird that Pochettino only wants right-footed CB prospects, especially since Wimmer is most likely gone.

    Which can be translated to that he wants to play in London and get regular minutes.

    Doesn´t worry me. I agree ideally you would want a balance, but if one due to injuries have to play three right footed CDs - that isn´t the end of the world. It would only be stupid if you plan with your three best CDs all being right footed. Especially since Pochettino likes the long diagonal pass from the back.

    Sanchez - Alderweireld - Dier/CCV would still be among the better back 3s in the league if Sanchez can live up to his hype (I don´t know him much at all - not completely convinced with his abilities on the ball).

    Just think if he didnt decide to act like a child he could have been the 1st CB on a champions league team, now the only teams that want him are middle to low end clubs.

    Sanchez-Toby-Verts-Trippier-Dier allows them to not have to throw CCV to the wolves, they have options again.

    From what I understand Sanchez is confident on the ball. Likes to carry it up the pitch. A bit too confident occasionally, but he has good pace for a centre half to largely make up for it.

    I'm more intrigued how our defense will look with somebody who closes down so aggresively.

    Oh yeah he is confident. A bit like the young Zlatan would have played if he had been a CD. It took Luiz quite a long time to figure out that balance in the PL (someone with a somewhat similar style).

    He doesn´t strike the ball very cleanly. Not the end of the world for a CD, but....

    Absolutely. Wanted van Dijk before the window. Sanchez is similar I guess. Exactly where I think the team needed strengthening the most.

    Good move for Foyth. He can learn a great deal from Poch.

    Would he be getting a lot of game time or are the Spurs deep at CB?

    Vertonghen and Alderweireld are seen as two of the best in the League. We just signed Davinson Sanchez. Dier plays there occasionally (maybe less so now). We still have Wimmer (most likely to be sold). Carter-Vickers is another decently touted prospect. To note is that we play three at the back quite often.

    Alderweireld
    Vertonghen
    Sanchez
    CCV
    Foyth

    And for some odd reason Pochettino seems to like Dier as a CD as well. Foyth might play the odd game in the league cup - at best this season (realistically). That said Pochettino will move people up/down the pecking order on merit so... Sissoko was out of the team very quickly when he didn´t perform even with all the money spent on him. It would be up to Foyth.

    Btw do not agree that CCV isn´t ready. Made a stupid mistake in the pre-season, but hardly a big thing.

    Didn't plan to but since you ask....
    One criticizes his coach and wants out.
    The other wants to stay and would give his all for his team.

    Really uncomparable.

    Anyway about Draxler... He doesn't want to move. Messi is trying to get Adm to sign with Barca. We'll see.

    I didn't say that, just that they don't NEED him to be ready.

    He may be.

    Sometimes I have to shake my head at all the conflicting reports. Just today I was reading that it was him who asked his agent to arrange for a move. Or just now I read that PSG want 32m pounds for him and in the same article it even mentions that they bought him for 35.5 seven months ago. Do these people even think about what they're writing? :laugh:

    Matuidi's price is 20+10.5M in fact.
