  1. As I said, anything above 30m is already overpaying (in general, not just for Virgil) PL clubs are loaded, a 50m is not that different from a 30m in the current age of football transfer fees.
  2. We overpaid 40m for Pogba. At the end of the day they're getting a class CB. It's not like they can easily sign Laporte or someone better for less.
  3. Perfect fit for Liverpool. Always hated him since his BVB days and his cringy ass quotes "Heavy Metal football" Tbf there aren't many strikers that Liverpool could sign at this moment. Salah is good signing but along with Ghoulam and Sane they'll be fucked every AFCON year. Just wish Matip played for Cameroon.
  4. In this day and age and the huge amount of money in football (especially in England) I don't think transfer fees really matter that much. A bargain is a bargain, but if you're paying over 30m for a player you're already overpaying and adding another 10m or 20m on top of that is not a big deal. At the end of the day Liverpool will get a good defender and partnered with Matip they'll probably have their most stable and reliable CB pairing since Rafa's days. A back 4 of Clyne-Virgil-Matip-Ghoulam is up there with the best in the league. As for tapping, it seems Virgil is doing all the work himself. For some reason he is fixated with the idea of playing under Klopp.
  5. I wish we could hijack that deal. Fuck. Him and Ghoulam would be great signings
  6. Arsenal have scored as much as late goals as we did, it doesn't change the fact that they are mentally weak. Pogba lost all confidence and forgot how to play because of one mistake. The midfield went non-existent because of one mistake.
  7. Because our players have a weak mentality. I'm pretty sure we would have beaten them if Pogba didn't concede the penalty. I'm not blaming Pogba, as mistakes happen, I'm blaming the team because it took them about 30 minutes to recover from the mistake.
  8. Reading Klopp's comments you'd think Herrera did a Suarez vs Ghana. What a fucking idiot.
  9. If you happen to know anything about BVB you'd know that Klopp did not buy most of these players. Look at the players he requested at Liverpool, aside from Mane, no one has been impressive. Winning La Liga, in a league were the world two best players play and the two best clubs in the world play is a much bigger achievement than winning the German league when Bayern were in a transition period. not to mention reaching two European finals and losing despite being the better team unlike Klopp who failed and got outperformed in his European finals Simeone is just depressed and waiting till the end of the season to go to Inter Milan and dominate Italian football
  10. Never liked him even at BVB Always thought that his achievments in Germany were overstated because the Bundisliga and especially Bayern were absolute shit and he also happened to have a squad of insane talents. He is a great motivator and is capable of making his teams play attractive football but he's also very one dimensional and tactically lacking. He is a very good coach, but people rate him on the level of the likes of Mourinho, Pep, Conte, Simeone and Ancleotti when he is not an elite level coach.
  11. In all of my 25 years of existence I'm yet to see a more dislikeable manager than Klopp. Klopp reminds me of that kid in high school who tries too hard to be funny and overreacts at everything but everyone laughs at his jokes because he always shares his food.
  12. If Raiola was Bastian's agent he would say the same thing about Mourinho.
  13. Biggest example of that is Bayern last season in the CL. Against Juve they crossed the ball more than Moyes team and ended up scoring from wide and beat Juve. Pep might not had the most successful spell in Germany, but his tactics became much more flexible in Germany, which is scary. And yeah, its topical of Mourinho to get results with no possession, United had 40% but we locked more dominant with those 40% than Southampton did with their 60%. Best thing about Mourinho is that even when he builds his side to counter, they always manage to perform well in possession. Inter 2010 is the highlight of Mourinho's career imo, his side was lethal on the counter, dicking away two possession obsessed managers in LvG and Pep but at the same time in Serie A Inter played very comfortably when they had the ball and never struggled to create chances. This is the difference in the quality of Mou and Klopp. Both of them favour counter attacking football, but one is a tactical mastermind who has a plan B and who builds teams that are comfortable with the ball, while the other has 0 backup plans and his teams can't breakdown organized teams. It's gonna be an interesting season in the PL with Ranieri, Pep, Mou and Arsene as the experienced managers while we had Koeman, Conte, Billic, Klopp and Pochettino as the young upcoming managers.
  14. It has nothing to do with a reliable goalscorer, they could've had Lewanowski there and they wouldn't have scored. Klopp's teams are never comfortable with they have the ball and the other team is their natural possession. When they have the ball and the other team is setting deep and in their positions, Klopp's teams struggle to make clear cut chances. They had 26 chances but only 5 were on target and that says it all.
