    When he's not being a wee rat cunt being the obvious caveat.

    Does this mean we can put KHL in prison to think about the error of his ways?

    Reminds me of these tweets I saw some time ago

    There's no doubt he has quality but quite evidently not at galatico status yet. This season could have been his making, 'new' role + with quality (attacking) players to play with. Alas, just when things are starting to look good, his long term future at the club is called into question.

    Initially I reckon it'd just be a fine, but yeah, if he fails to pay, slap his Scando @rse in irons immediately.

    Availability is the most important ability.

    The ratio stats favour Coutinho but they mean fuck all if you're not on the pitch

    I was very mad at him after the Sevilla game. Very mad. To the point that I was happy to drop him to the bench or sell him in the new season. But then he scored that free-kick against Arsenal in the first game and gave a few 8/10 performances in a row and all was forgotten... But that performance in the most important game of the season was unacceptable and kind of supports Real's board's point about him being overvalued.

    True, but Coutinho has not struggled with injury generally. It was a bit of a freak injury brought about through contact on the field too, not one that suggests a chronic weakness or general susceptibility to injury (like Studge, Hendo etc.)

    What does that tell you about him ? - it tells us that in the final game when it really matters - he just cannot step up and do the business.

    Steven Gerrard slipped when it really mattered, in the most important game in nearly 30 years. Should we judge him on one game? No, that would be fucking idiotic.

    Steven Gerrard - cannot be judged on the above because he did enough before that slip to suggest he does not fuck up in the finals. Also I would not compare a league game with a cup final of any kind - unless it was the last league game of the season and winning meant winning the title. You cannot compare that slip to his performance in the game overall.

    Apparantly he cried yesterday after we rejected a £140m 11th hour bid.

    Pray for Phillipe.

    It was probably £80 mill.again plus an add-on of about £50 mill.if the world has a Close Encounter of the Third Kind by the end of the decade.

    Barcas mouthpieces are saying we told them it's now £185m or do one yesterday.

    I don't know why that's particularly outrageous given we could no longer sign a replacement , were they expecting the price to go down or stay the same or something ?

    We should have said we rate him better than Neymar. So you cannot afford him.

    I think there is a danger of people treating him like Sterling all over again when he forced his way out and people acted like he was actually shit and even more ridiculously that Ibe was a better player. Coutinho has made a tit of himself but he's arguably still our best player, I don't want to see him down tools or get the Sahko treatment from Klopp.

    "A price of €200m (£183m) and we decided we wouldn't do it.

    "That's an example of the way football is now. This club and this board will not get involved in that, though.

    "What's happened in the transfer market this summer has taken us to a totally different model of football which we're not used to."

    Lol.

    So you will sell one of your players for £200m but you refuse to be drawn into the madness of buying a player for similar sums.

    Gotcha
