    Jesus Christ almighty... Y'know what? I give up. You're right. I'm wrong. And so is everybody else on the site, except you.

    Jude Bellingham is clearly the greatest English player ever, whether we sign him or not. And I'll not mention the fact that every single player you've brought up there has played in the internet era, and that's why they're who you reference, rather than similarly talented players from the pre-internet era.

    How old are you? Genuine question.

    You only have to look at Binomial’s film reviews in the film thread to get an idea of why he’d rate Bellingham so highly.

    Jude will definitely be in his list of top 500,000 players ever.

    Watched Dortmund tonight and he was sensational. He’s got everything to his game, 18 years old fuck my life we need to get him in now before we get fucked over.

    Where do you think the £100m is going to come from?

    So you know, Klopp played Jota in a dead rubber game against Midgetland so the club could pocket an extra £1.8m only to lose him to an injury.

    I think position in the group was worth extra money? Something like that any way.

    Ah I see, well hopefully not a mistake Klopp will be making again since topping the group doesn't really guarentee you an easier fixture over finishing runners up

    You get €900k in media money from UEFA per point in the group stage - so a draw is worth €900k and a win €2,700k.
    I actually think Klopp would have been more motivated by winning than the cash, but the point still stands. We lost a key player in a game we didn’t need to win (and which we drew anyway).

    I wouldn't be surprised if the orders came from top. We had already topped that group, Jota could have done with a rest.

    It becomes a bit circular though.

    CL win bonuses kick in so a lot of that extra revenue goes straight into the players pockets.

    I am not sure quite how 1,800 euros is relevant to a major investment in Jude Bellingham.

    Us spending spending was is needed would not surprise me. It would exactly be the same kind of investment as VVD. A record fee for a generational talent.

    As much as I get a little frustrated with FSG on transfers, their record is - go big or go for value. And, when it works (Alison, VVD, Jota, Sane), the value is there too.

    I think Bellingham is a much better case than Sancho and many others before him. Although it could be either going big at midfield or forward next summer, as there will be options for both and Harland also looks like great value.

    Our big transfers were always financed through sales or low volume transfer window.
    At a £100m he is out of our league. Are there players who are at the £30-£40m Mark who could be as effective as Jude, that I am sure there are.

    You often say this, "there must be others just as effective as Player A or B or Z". However you never come with names. Know why? Because they aren't as effective, otherwise one of the scouts for the top clubs that are scattered around the world would have found this etheresque player and he'd no longer be playing in the shadows.

    Of course we could always take a chance on a gazillion possibilities but guess what? Most of them will turn out to be crap anyway, the team would suffer and you'd want to sell them !
