Apparently the Coutinho offer was structured in such a way that £80 million was payable the balance if and when certain conditions were met one of which being that he had to win the Balon D'or :roll: Ken

Bob, Just look at the plight of the Scotland team. Too many mediocre foreigners playing up there, the youngsters not getting a chance. With the the demise of Rangers the league is very weak and unless your with Celtic it must be hard to get noticed.

...and that £80m was itself to be paid over 5 years - bit cheeky when they've just got £198m for Neymar!

Just over a week of the Transfer Window left. Who will come who will go ?
Coutinho, Moreno, Markovic , Flanagan, Origi all mentioned as "outs" No idea who might come in :roll: Ken

Really ? Barca to return with bids of £136 or £138 million for Coutinho according to our finest tabloids.
£100 million up front, Nectar points and free Paella for a year for all, oh and to make the deal a signed Messi shirt for each board member :roll: Roll on the window close :D Ken

Same line up again for Hoffenheim tonight. Early goal to take the pressure off would be nice.

Just need to sign Van Dyke. Can showing his ability, just needs to be more consistent. Moreno great going forward but still lacking in defensive qualities. Good result though I thought they were a good side.

Agree Eddy, Lovren at fault for their first goal and nowhere near the header for their second. He played alright otherwise but doesn't dominate the box. Matip was better, even Moreno but my jury still out on Gino W... :D Ken

If Man City willing to pay £28 million for Johnny Evans, how come nobody came in for Sakho?

Great stuff , excellent all round display against a poor Arsenal. :D
Only concern would be that Keeper when the ball at his feet. Why rest your number one choice, they've only played 4 games :?: Ken

What a fantastic performance against Arsenal!!

Anything is possible when a team plays as well as the Reds did last night against Arsenal.
I do hope that the standard can be kept up for the rest of the season.

IT does show that we can exist without Coutinho, who to be honest does demonstrate sometimes some really lazy performances mixed in with his brilliance. But if he is on form, I wonder what will happen if he is playing midfield feeding Mane, Salah and Firmino?

The new season looks good - long may it reign. :)

Salah & Mane, Thompson & Callaghan with goals :lol:
CoutinWho? Ken

Actually Phil, I think he might unbalance things as Can or Gini W would have to drop out and both offer more box to box workrate with better defensive qualities. I didn't exclude Henderson but figured as Captain, he's in. It will be very interesting when Lallana fit and Sturridge fully fit what Klopp does. Ken

Ken - I think are you are right.

It is an interesting problem for Klopp to have, especially to work out how to bring in Lallana especially.

They are talking in the press over here about getting rid of Origi - how true is that?

Good to chat, my friend. :D

Origi on loan looks the likely option Phil but sure they would cash in for the right offer. Sturridge, Solanke, Ings all ahead of him it seems. Not even to make the squad must be very dispiriting for an established International.
Those over the Park might be interested, they need a front man :lol:
All the best.

Keita confirmed, arrival for next season. Could be to replace Can who has not yet accepted LFC offer and is being courted by Juventus.
Keita, Mane & Salah in the same team looks very exciting :D Ken

Big squad Bob. Still business to be done, Sakho to Palace it seems. Would hope we cover that position. Matip looking better but Lovren still worries me. :wink: Ken

Hope so Bob, I like your positivity :D
I don't like the Window though, there seems little loyalty from players or clubs.
Think Coutinho, Barkley locally and loyal players go further down the pecking order when some new foreigner comes in . It doesn't give kids a chance to get a run.
Owners want instant success and are prepared to pay ridiculous money to achieve it but changing a team doesn't always work and often the " spirit" of a club can be lost in the change. Herr Klopp seems to have managed to achieve change and rebuild a very good atmosphere at LFC. :D Ken

Spot on again Ken, the atmosphere does seem to be good at the training camp he and his staff have good motivation skill working well with everyone in the camp, that's a talent given to some people and Klopp seems to have it.
They seem to work longer in the afternoon at Melwood went in there a couple of months back fantastic facilities.
Like you said Ken no loyalty from some players think that's down to agents sometimes.

It was reported on sky that Coutinho is training alone and is reported to be suffering from stress. Ox' Chamberlain knocked Chelsea back and said he wants to go to Liverpool. Not sure about him seeing his performances at Arsenal.

They seem to breed that type at Arsenal, Ox, Wiltshire, Ramsey, Walcott, all outstanding players who can disappear in a game but also great impact players. Wenger has never really had them all firing at the same time :roll: Ken
