So now what?


Craft-Superb

Haaland is Daemon Targaryen and I won’t hear otherwise


disco_mode

There's a lot of suggestion that Trent is a complete liability at RB. What 1 or 2 players would you replace him with? And from a tactical POV, who would take on his playmaking responsibilities (particularly those picking up the ball from defenders/beating the initial press)? :)


stevieG08Liv

its a sticky problem. TAA is very unique, he is different from other attacking RBs like Reece or Walker as he doesn't have the dribbling abilities but can pinpoint deliveries from deep in the back (well on his good days) so finding someone who can do that also isn't going to be easy.


disco_mode

Very true, he’s always involved in our build up play. A lot of his work is starting to unnoticed IMO


NGog_Fan

People have spent the past 3 years saying how Trent is the best RB since Cafu but now he has a patch of poor form (when the whole team is struggling, not just him) and apparently he's a complete liability.


Due-Sherbert3097

Trent’s best football comes with a midfielder who is defensively sound and plays a deeper role to cover for him. However, this season he has to bust a gut to track back alot with Elliott there. He isn’t playing great at all don’t get me wrong but there’s more factors towards his form than simply he’s just playing shite in my opinion


disco_mode

Ha, true. Just interested to hear what the alternative to Trent would be. I personally think some of the other issues in the team are most visible on the right hand side and that's being equated to Trent. But for sure Trent's isn't the only imaginable option for RB.


NGog_Fan

If Trent is already the best RB in the world then it goes without saying that any alternative would be a downgrade


disco_mode

100%

Roger Federer is going to retire, enjoy yours legend


ss2195

The Bellingham rumours are such a tease. Even if the links to players are true, it's difficult to navigate the clusterfuck that is transfer news since most will want to capitalize on our desperate fanbase.


Due-Sherbert3097

I’m just ignoring these Bellingham links from now on. There’s 10 months roughly till the transfer window opens and he’s available, in which anything could happen. Until I hear a transfer agreement or whatsoever I’m taking this whole saga with a grain of salt


hordesofevil

A Dani Alves thread on r soccer and people (non liverpool fans) are mentioning Trent. Says it all really.


GotToGoBlud

Is the Arthur rumour true?


stevieG08Liv

they are tier The S*n so i don't think its true and even if it is Klopp will never say this publicly. Their logic is also very laughable since they are assuming this since he only played 13 mins out of 3 games.


juicewilson

What is it?

napoleonboneitis

Hearts actually have a guy named Shankland. That's got to be a joke or a stage name. Actually that would be great if more players went by pseudonyms. Something exotic like Stabvillage or Prince would look great on a player's back.


weaponizeddonut

Wait until you find out about a king called Longshanks


SnooLobsters9002

Joaquin scoring in Europe at 41. Great stuff.


Utter_Perfection

It's wild that he's still playing. Gerrard and Joaquin were in their primes at the same time. I remember when we faced Betis in CL in 2005 all the build up was around the two talisman Stevie and Joaquin. We were even linked with Joaquin because of the Rafa/Spanish connection. Would've been a proper statement signing and much needed quality out wide, unfortunately we were massively penny pinching around that time. Imagine rejecting Dani Alves when everything was set for him to sign because the last 8m could either be spent on him or Kuyt :(


aking05

Holy fuck, any time Haaland does anything r/soccer loses its mind. His interviews are consistently top voted there never mind his goals. Sport washing has been a huge success for city.


nask00

His interviews were always different than the usual we hear. That makes them interesting. I remember when Malen joined BVB, Haaland, when asked about the new player BVB signed, replied ''I told him to give me lots of assists''. You also have the ''first half was good, second half was shit'' and my personal favorite ''why not''. [Here, watch some](https://youtu.be/CuOvodbkPjA)


Puzzleheaded-Seat834

Because the subreddit is called "soccer"


8u11etpr00f

Imagine r/soccer if Messi/Ronaldo started their dominance when Reddit was this big...its only natural that the best players get the most attention


Wowawiewa

You speak as if he doesn’t deserve the attention he gets. The man’s like a machine!


Bumi_Earth_King

Cool, but we could still not have a front page article every time he farts.


ss2195

I mean, the same thing happens with Klopp tbf. Every quote makes it to the top there


Bumi_Earth_King

Not even close IMO. One Klopp quote makes it to the front page for every conference, two max, and people act like it's too much. Whereas I distinctly remember Haaland reaching the front page with literally "I grew another cm heeeheee".


theOwl_8

The goal that scamacca just scored for West Ham, holy cow


Due-Sherbert3097

There’s just something about tall strikers that when they strike a ball it’s an automatic rocket of a shot


HuddzHD

He’s really good in that area


Rowaniac

Is that stuff going round on twitter about Arthur all nonsense aye?


Few_Egg

Probably false, but he is a pretty mediocre midfielder by all accounts (stats-wise and eye test from his time at Juve). I doubt Klopp is too enamored by him, just like he wasn't enamored by Davies.


malushanks95

I think it’s fake because we wouldn’t come out with these things in the middle of the season when we might need to rely on the player. I think it was started by Tutto Mercato and is being parroted by random aggregators to make it look as if there is something in the news.


yosemite_marx

Idk it makes a lot of sense it was a desperation move that anyone could have seen wouldn't work. Doubt klopp would ever admit a player wasn't good enough tho


Swiftofeye

What stuff for those wot don't do Twitter


kingdomkey13

Rumor is he’s ass and Klopp wants to terminate the loan


SurrealSoap

Hope Trent is defending against the US when they play.

sonaldofds

Just read somewhere that Jude is valued between 130-150 million. I don’t see how fsg pays that lol.


Evered_Avenue

Only if he signs a 5, 6 or 7 year contract at acceptable wages.


Mad_Piplup242

I can be fairly certain they will, just don't expect many more signings the same summer


Sinistrait

We haven't spent that much in one summer since 2018. Spending 150m on one player might put our scouting team out of job until 2025.


dolphintitties

ronaldo actually celebrating against a club from a country that doesn't that doesn't exist, and is 12 years younger than him. christ.

>Unless you men Transinistra Why is a sex change relevant?


MambaCalledGame24

What did everyone think of Alvarez the other night? Seemed like all of Ajax play came through him. I don’t know if he’d accept the reduced game time but I’ve always thought we’ve lacked quality cover for Fabinho that fits the criteria we need: - accomplished on the ball - good reading of the game - able to cover in back 4 if needed - good ball winner Would probably never happen and given that clubs like Chelsea were after him we’d have no chance matching bids and salary. Just think we’ll need 3 midfielders in next summer as well as clearing Keita, Ox and possibly Milner (if he retires) out. And Fabinho always has to play near the most minutes in the team bc we have no cover for him


matcht

He's a very good player but lacks a little on the ball and technically to play the #6 role for us, if we played a double pivot he'd be great as the ball winner.


Rottedhead

As a mexican, Álvarez is great in their defensive abilities as he is a CB turned CDM but lacks attacking qualities, also I think he may be too slow for Premier League


Stuarridge

I love Fabinho but its not like he could get lose his place if we brought in competition that were good enough. Fab is still very very good but hes not what he was 2 years ago, imo


Puzzleheaded-Seat834

vurbbbb

Does anyone know if Minamino is actually getting minutes over at AS Monaco? I’d hope that he’s starting every league game


GTACOD

Transfermarkt says 3 and a half games worth of minutes in the 6 hes played.


Rightguards

In the league looks like 3 appearances so far (from 7 games) with 1 assist


Puzzleheaded-Seat834

In the beginning he did but recently not much.


thatguyad

I see Origi isn't having a good time at Milan. Voted worst signing of the summer. Honestly, I'm not surprised. For the majority of his time here he was an average player and frustrating at times. He just had a knack of creating memorable moments from time to time.


Ymir-Reiss

He wasn't voted worst signing of the summer, he was labelled it by an Italian sports commentator who seems like an asswipe


sxrg

Been injured unluckily for most of his stay so far


lateregistration13

Why did he even go there? Just to sit on the bench every game like he did for us.


Stuarridge

He seems like the guy who would enjoy the Milano lifestyle.


No-Economist3226

He was voted flop of the year by ligue 1 fans when he went on loan to france. Although i agree that he was an average player who was frustrating (i wouldn't even say at times, I'd say most of the time), the opinion of the fans isn't always indicative of the a players capabilities. As we see often on here, in fact.


thatguyad

Too true.


Rightguards

Looking at the data on Transfermarkt (dont know how accurate) it says he has had 3 league appearances, all off the bench playing 48 mins in total. Hopefully he just needs a settling in period because 'worst signing' after that much time is harsh.


WH6TSINANAME

Well currently injured which won't help build feeling of value


31honeybadger

He is a club legend


swingtothedrive

Liverpool wanted to sign Sancho and we're happy to pay the fee Dortmund wanted buy couldnt agree personal terms with Sancho so we moved on as United signed .This was reported by Pearce months later. Similar we have no deal agreed with Bellingham then we wouldn't be this actively pursue . Ofcourse transfer market is fluent and things could change but the fact that we are actively pursuing the deal (All the reports are by highly reliable journos) means we have already some sort agreement on salary terms with Bellingham. For those sighting Tchoumeni, it was a fluid situation caused by the unexpected decision of Mbappe. He he had decided to leave PSG, Tchoumeni would likely have been Liverpool player and his would have been 50-55 mil as well( That's what Monaco were asking until Madrid decided they wanted him at all costs).


8u11etpr00f

So you're telling me that damn ninja turtle caused everything....Mbappe2022 indeed :(


malushanks95

Sancho also wanted to go to United, he was quite clear on that. This was confirmed by Fab as well as Sancho himself. Both Chelsea and us offered to pay what Dortmund demanded but he wanted to only go to United.


ss2195

Weird, isn't he a Chelsea fan?


WH6TSINANAME

More fool him I guess


swingtothedrive

Because United were willing to pay 350 k which we refused. If we were willing to pay 350 k in wages he would have been a Liverpool player.


malushanks95

Chelsea would have been able to pay those wages, but he didn’t go there. I feel his mind was set on United because they were chasing him for 3 summers.


swingtothedrive

They can doesn't mean they were willing to.


LyricalHolster

I hope we have backups lined up for the Bellingham spot. He is definitely not coming. There’s a few more attractive destinations ahead of us, both locations, history of winning (recent) and money.


Swiftofeye

"Definately not coming" Where do people first these takes. Kin el


LyricalHolster

Put a reminder on my post. We can revisit this when he is playing in Madrid.


ss2195

He can play in Madrid, Bayern, Milan, Manchester or London. In Liverpool red ofc


Swiftofeye

But that still doesn't mean anything. You're making statements that you don't know, as others do. He 'may' not come here. BUT he may.


malushanks95

How reliable is this source? He is saying we are interested in Nunes (here we go again 🤦🏻‍♀️) and Enzo Fernandez from Benfica for next summer, might also spend in the winter window. https://twitter.com/brunoandrd/status/1570424211247665155?s=20&t=TRyGRrE9YwUyLwibDdVfrw


fifteenpterosaurs

he is followed by paul joyce and david ornstein if that gives him any credence


malushanks95

Thanks, the aggregators seem to give him reliable rating on Twitter but I’ll wait for more reliable sources.


McQueensbury

We had the chance to sign Nunes weeks ago, he was actively waiting for us to make a move for him. I doubt we'll be making a move for him next summer. Fernandez I can see as an alternative to Bellingham


ss2195

Isn't Fernandez a DM?


McQueensbury

No he's more of an no.8 who can cover DM


Hoodxd

How often does a player leave in the same season he joined his club


Jaja6996

I don’t know how reliable they are but I think one of Pearce or Jones mentioned we where actually interested in Enzo before he moved to Benfica


DrAgOnLoLDoTA

It was from Melissa Reddy. She also mentioned Kone and Caicedo


malushanks95

I saw on Twitter, someone mentioned he’s a reliable Brazilian reporter but I have no idea if that’s correct.


neotonne

Anyone know how Morton is doing? will he become a starter like Harvey next season?


MambaCalledGame24

He’ll need to put 10 kilos of muscle on first


Stuarridge

Juice him up


da_undataka

Who was VVD speaking of when saying ex-players are quick to attack them despite being in their shoes? Im thinking Souness.


MambaCalledGame24

That bum Murphy was spewing a lot of nonsense, he was the first I thought of


Embarrassed_Cow_4321

I think he was talking about Rio Ferdinand, don't think he explicitly meant ex-Liverpool.


aghashayan

Matip is now personification of look at me, I'm captain now meme. Forget the elite defense and the goals, he is a legit play maker for the team. He plays as a midfielder when in possession. And no one can do it like him in the whole world, so unique.


dolphintitties

MambaCalledGame24

His takes are always obscenely bad, especially when it comes to Liverpool, anytime I see his name pop up I expect it to be something atrocious bc I’ve become accustomed to it- I can only assume he does it for views and attention


cavejohnsonlemons

Christ, I thought I watched shit content


ABAZABA20

I hate that guy so much, they need to stop giving morons a platform


Constant_List6829

He comes out with some braindead takes prety regularly, too. Though i do watch him for his weird opnions


ThiagoXNaby

So fucking much. Horrible sad little cunt. Also everything he does goes through me. Should feel sorry for him because he definitely got bullied the first 18 years of his life but he's too much of a knob. E; course he's actually a fucking Tory. Fuck Ben foster too.


Walter_Klemmer

Have we ever been linked to Declan Rice? I would love to see us go all in for him and Bellingham. In my mind we need two new midfielders and it could be a selling point to him and Bellingham to have the opportunity to play together at club level possibly cementing their place in the national team for years to come. It would require a massive outlay upfront but those two could play in our midfield for the next 7 years. They both have resale value and we will be getting rid of massive wages in the next few years in midfield (Milner, Chamberlain, Keita and possibly Thiago and Henderson). If not Rice I hope we are looking at someone close to his level. We need more energy in midfield and Bellingham alone won't be enough.


Tremor00

Neil Jones actually did name him as someone we have interest in however it was noted his price tag is seen as too much or something along those lines


Walter_Klemmer

With West Ham struggling and him turning down contract offers his price tag could potentially be more appealing next summer. I just hope we show some ambition in the next summer transfer window. Darwin was good but we need more energy in midfield. We used to be top when it came to sprints and running but we have been outran by almost everyone this season.


Tremor00

I feel like rice to chelsea is inevitable. But jude rice would be a phenomenal pair to pick up


Robinhoyo

West Ham would want £100m for a player who on ability alone should cost no more than 30.


Walter_Klemmer

In this market I think you could justify up to £50-70m for him. With West Ham underperforming and him refusing contract offers West Ham might have to accept offers they wouldn't look at today.


Robinhoyo

I feel like West Ham is his level tbh and there's better players out there for that kind of money. If there's any player we should be going for at West Ham it's Bowen.


AeronReformed

English tax is huge and he is premier league proven.


broken_neck_broken

Just can't get past my Irish saltiness towards Rice. Used our international youth setup to further himself while England gave no fuck about him, right up to appearing in 3 international friendlies. Then Southgate comes calling and he's off like a bat out of hell. Aside from the insult that was to a whole nation, it shows a certain disloyalty which could be disruptive if it shows itself in his club career.


Emanny

Would be nice in theory but I think both Dortmund and West Ham would want a transfer fee in excess of £100m and I can't imagine us spending that much on two players in the same window without some serious transfer income, which doesn't look particularly likely at this stage.


Walter_Klemmer

Yes I agree I don't see it happening but it would be nice to be proactive in the transfer market for a change. Our midfield could potentially be sorted for the next 5 years with Harvey Elliott, Fabio Carvalho and potentially Curtis Jones around as well. I don't see us needing much investment up front in the next 2-3 years and the same goes for our backline. Those two could therefore be our only investments for maybe 2-3 years which would mean a transfer outlay averaging at around £100m or less per year.


auurevoir

I gotta ask, did anyone find the atmosphere as off and timid? I mean, most of the game I could hear was the Ajax crowd. I don't know, maybe I'm reading too much into it.


Zaid_Abraham

TV doesn't give a true representation of what the atmosphere is like. Since it's dependent on how the broadcaster sets up the pitch-side microphones and mixes the audio.


DLRsFrontSeats

Probably a combination of our lot being nervous after really poor start to the season, possession not leading to goals leading to nervousness, them equalising quite soon after we took the lead, and [Ajax fans in general being very loud and passionate](https://youtu.be/0NrmeTVCWPw)


throbdannway

If I’m being honest, I have no idea how will Klopp extract the most out of Jude if he comes to us. Is he willing to keep Salah wide and let Jude have the half space and attack the box?


Swiftofeye

Let's not buy him.


[deleted]

I'm sure Klopp has a plan, Jude wasn't even our first choice according to some reports.


MartinPerrott

Trent got selected which is a shame. Could use the rest. Hopefully doesn't play too much.


Psychological-Act582

Surprised Southgate selected him given his dip in form and the fact he doesn't rate him highly as RB.


Swiftofeye

He was getting plenty of rest in most of the games this season tbh.


BarryZuckerhorn

To be honest, on form, he doesn't deserve to start


Swiftofeye

*be called up


malushanks95

Hope Southgate chooses Reece for all the games, so that our boy can rest.


bestest_looking_wig

Would pay good money for wolves to get a W this weekend and knock city down a peg. Can’t stand all the media drooling over them


cornontheklopp

but the media will still drool over them if they lose


Cactiareouroverlords

They’d pull headlines like “lucky wolves win” even if city played like ass


Swiftofeye

That's what Abu Dhabi pay them to do.


Elliot_Kyouma

Are we pretending that City don't have a good football team now?


neotonne

They needed Halaand to bail them against bottling specialists, Drew Aston villa on a disqualified goal that the referee apologized for. Full squad and a messi/ronald type player yet only scraping by.


Elliot_Kyouma

Have you been watching them play football in the past 5 years? They are annoyingly good. A couple of bad results in games they dominated doesn't make them bad, unless you are a contrarian


neotonne

No they are good. Just not great for what they spent.. They're unlikely to pull a Liverpool 19/20 or win a champions league


Swiftofeye

No not at all, we, unlike the media don't ignore the fact City have cheated fiscally to get where they are.


chairdesktable

ill try to keep formation talk to a minimum, but klopp switched to 4231(or 442/424, depending on how you interpret firmino's position) in the 65th minute of the Ajax game and we looked WORLDS better than we have pretty much all season.


taf3991

Agreed, he came on there against Everton as well and looked good, wonder if he will go with it in the future from the start, because he has done it last season during a few games as well but never from the start.


BurceGern

I’d love to sign Jude. Crazy thing is we’d still need another midfielder if we let Ox, Milly and Naby all expire. Hendo, Fab, Thiago, *New boi*, Harvey, Curtis, Carvalho, *New boi 2*


RamboA123B

Would rather not sign Bellingham. People don't understand how much surgery is needed in midfield. Our only good midfielders are fabinho and thaigo. Bellingham is a very good player and would no doubt improve us but our summer budget is likely to be about 100m. We won't get anything for the likes of ox, miler end keita who are leaving. We need 2 midfield minimum. Don't want us spending our entire summer budget on Bellingham. Last 3 times we spent over 100m in the transfer window we sold Coutinho, Suarez and sterling to fund it.


InfamousJackfruit672

I do think you are right; oversimplified we need both a good creative/offensive midfielder and a good defensive/hardworking midfielder. Over all though I would rather that we got one of the two signings spot on and then not made the other signing. It's tough to say if we could find an equal to Bellingham for half the money though. Ideally we would find the money for both though, Milner, Ox and Naby have quite handsome salaries and the club might be headed for a nice profit.


Astro3001

We have to spend more than 100m next summer there should be no excuses made for us not to considering we have only spent 200m in 4 years and we need the money more than ever


Happy-Respond-1108

Spending money to improve the team!?!? Go and support city /s


RamboA123B

With the way we are run by fsg it's not likely. Especially looking at our previous transfer windows. Unless they change their mind. At our peak when we won the champions League we didn't improve our team and bought Adrian, Elliott and van den berg in the summer window.


No-Cup9855

We are a sell to buy club, you're right and I don't know why people can't handle hearing it. We have literally sold all of our depth while at our peak to fund all our purchases. Who is genuinely left to sell anymore? Unless FSG actually want to behave like owners with ambition we won't spend what Dortmund ask, and if we do we'll not spend anything else despite needing several signings in midfield.


RamboA123B

Exactly my point mate. People don't like hearing the truth especially on this sub. Get downvoted to hell if you don't say something they agree with.


No-Cup9855

This sub doesn't reflect real life thankfully. I think this place harbours a lot of FSG > club sentiment.


JustierNo1

I like your alternative view on the Bellingham situation. But I think in hindsight it’s clear to say that the inaction in summer 2019 hurt us in the long term (i.e., now and in the 20/21 season). There is a fundamental gap in the squad at the midfield position. Personally I am not too convinced to spend this much money on a player from the Bundesliga, we have seen it gone wrong so often.


RamboA123B

If we had signed a proper midfielder this summer, I would've been all calm about going for Bellingham but we didn't and ended up with Arthur on loan. For example if we signed Nunes and then next summer got Bellingham they both would've been our future long term midfielders but we have neglected the position. Then we wouldn't have to rely on a injury prone thiago to function in midfield.


Astro3001

Bundesliga produces great talent its really just attackers that are risky to buy since German teams can't defend for shit.


abradley19955

Henry Winter casually claiming he can’t wait to see Bellingham at Liverpool next season wasn’t a mistake btw. He’s 100% heard something


taf3991

Genuine question, If that's the case why isn't there some kind of pre agreement in place like there was with Keita? City and Real will both be in for a big midfielder this season, what's making people so sure we are gonna get him?


Astro3001

I'd like to think the club has had something in place considering they put no one else but I wouldn't bet on it with FSG


TheNotoriousJN

I dont think FSG would be stupid enough to actively stop Liverpool spending near the deadline if they didnt believe they absolutely had Bellingham in the bag. It would be horrific mismanagement otherwise. That being said i do worry that by spending that much we'll then decide thats it for the summer. We absolutely cannot have that


Happy-Respond-1108

>It would be horrific mismanagement otherwise. The writing is on the wall.


Bamfandro

I just don’t see why they wouldn’t announce it if that was the case. The only reason I could think would be to prevent journalists asking questions. The reality is though, if they didn’t agree a fee, they could probably get way more money next year so it doesn’t make sense to me.


Astro3001

Imagine the slander Son would get if he played for us, barely seen anything on twitter or r/soccer about his dire form


GotToGoBlud

I believe he hasn’t scored a goal yet, did he at least assist something?


Astro3001

1 assist, but generally really bad performances


Robinhoyo

He's a very streaky player at some point he'll go on an insane run over 10-15 games.


YellowBaboon

Bellingham is great and all but we need a younger version Henderson whose main job is to cover TAA and occupy any space he leaves behind. It's not a sexy role but it needs to be done.


mrkingkoala

We need more than just Bellingham. Milner, Ox, Kieta probably should be moved on next summer. Milner possibly given a coaching role if there is one available and thats what he wants to do. I think he would be good for the younger lads coming through. Hendo and Thiago both have injury issues. Jones we will wait and see. Really just leaves Fabby who is 100% reliable most of the time, with the 2 young lads. I'd say 2-3 midfielders while moving on a those 3 I mentioned and monitoring hendos gametime for injuries and stuff.


BurceGern

I agree. That’s probably why we were linked with Laimer, who’s a mad presser by all accounts.


TheDismal_Scientist

We absolutely must offer stupid money to tempt him from Bayern on a free next year


arslan91

I just want us to get back to that level again where our attack especially the front 3 used to scare the shit out of guardiola like we saw in that city documentary

NB’s stuff was so much nicer and genuine. I lived the sneakers and kits. I know that clothing taste is so subjective, but I never liked Nike. I remember it was also an argument about availability, but it seems they are equally often sold out.

Sorry to bring up more royal shit but as an overseas observer I have to ask: Is Charles really going to keep up the ridiculous military cosplay? His dad was a racist jackass, but at least he actually saw combat in WWII. And I suppose for Liz you can say that all the vestments of the Order of the Garter or whatever looked elegant, but all her kids just look so tacky.

He was in the air force and navy after he finished uni. I don't know what any of the medals mean but he was part of those establishments.

Most of the medals are not military medals. They will be things like jubilee medals.

I don't pay attention to most of that stuff but if I google "King Charles" then it mostly comes up with pictures of him in a suit. I'd assume any "cosplay" is likely tradition that he needs to partake in, for some reason we love dressing everyone up like they're heading out to the Napoleonic wars.

Right, I assume it's not everyday wear, but even without really paying attention to it you can't help but see the pictures when you open up any news site. I suppose every country has ways in which it clings to its deeply-rooted history and tradition long after it's served any useful purpose. ​ ​ (why yes, that last bit might be a subtweet)
