    Just thinking does the Guinness guy come round with a certificate when you break the world record transfer fee? Or at least a certificate in the post? Ha that made me think wouldn't it be funny if Liverpools Guinness world record certificate just turned up in the post today.

    Seems we've had no good loans at all, although we can claim we once had a ballon d'or winner play for us. Hopefully this will be the first. Good luck Mateo.

    Forgot about those 2. I was thinking back to the mighty Ricardo Quaresma, pretty sure that was a loan.

    Never watched him play but even in his highlights reel he seems to spill the ball a lot. Is he good with his feet? For the price quoted I'd throw in the extra and get Oblak

    I think we need to add another goal scorer to the team. Kovacic isn't the man for that. Worryingly at the moment I can only see Hazard getting double figures, hopefully Sarri can get Michy playing like he did at Dortmund.

    Rumours Gathering on this, probably down to him being left out of the friendly tonight or panic due to the impending transfer window slamming shut. Seems a popular choice on this forum and doesn't seem like a difficult transfer to pull off.

    I'm a fan of Willian, unstoppable on his day and yes I agree he's inconsistent, but he's put in a great service for the club over the years. Sad if this is going through, however I think this is the right time to sell given his age and the rumoured transfer fee. I do think this will drag on though, and that we will be trying to secure a replacement before this goes through. Its been along time since we've bought a young fast tricky player, the kind that gets you excited for the match in the way Hazard does.

    Finally starting to get excited for the new season. Looking forward to us playing some fearless Pep/Klopp style attacking football with splashes of Dutch total football and 1970's Brazilian Samba thrown in for good measure.

    I don't have a problem with his lack of trophies. Actually I find his pathway to the top of management from amateur level a success all on it's own, and while sticking to beautiful football too. An achievement greater than the odd trophy won with a team that should be winning them regardless of who's in charge. How many managers have moved so high up the managerial ladder in such a short period of time? Klopp, Pep, Pochettino etc all got their first management role for established teams in the top divisions without questioning their trophy collection. Maybe the drive to win his first trophy will be a great motivation for him.

    Felt a little sad for Conte watching that video. Sorry it didn't work out and thanks for the trophies Antonio.
  11. I think tonight has highlighted how important Christiansen is now. After watching Luiz constantly follow Deeney out wide all night leaving a massive gap down the middle vs Watford. He even made Dave look average.
  12. The stat correctly relates to the 2 seasons both have managed in the premier league. Not just this season.
  13. I was never worried, honestly.
  14. We actually started to press higher up the pitch late on. Confidence coming back after a really shaky start. Hopefully we can build on this.
