This from the poster who confidently predicted Mane would go to Madrid this summer
Can we please apply this short simple principle to all threads moving forward.
Calm down, Asim.
I don't see us letting Salah go unless he seriously goes wrong or wants to leave. Right now, he is a sure thing for us with the goals and his general wing play, there is not guarantee that the players you are listing will be adequate replacements for the goals Salah provides, they all have common issues... none are PL proven players, and additionally:
Werner - don't know much about him other than the goals he has scored are not that high in number to suggest he will be adequate replacement for Mane/Salah. I know he has pace, but the other thing I have noticed is that the number of games he is playing per season is not that high - is he injury prone ? - both Salah and Mane have great fitness records which also needs to be considered.
Pepe - I like the youtube stuff on him, very Hazard like in the French league. I think Nicol recently pointed out something about him that put a doubt in my mind too, he has this gangly kind of running dribbling style. Would that work in the PL - really stupid question I know but again you have to ask would he be able to replicate that form in the PL.
Asensio - saw glimpses of his talent in the world cup, but just cannot see him putting in the work rate that is demanded by Klopp in midfield. Also, I am really reluctant to sign another bit-part player from Real Madrid.
Van Der Beek - lot of great talk about him, but I find it strange that in @rurikbird 's analysis, and others people keep talking about his ability to take up positions that no one else thinks about - he is very forward thinking etc... - if he is the only one doing that in the team and thinking like that - I doubt the rest of the team will ever find him on the pitch to pass to. I really don't know what this guy would bring to our current team.
All I know is that we need a creative mid, a creative forward to replace Studge, and a organising defender if Lovren is to leave. Also replacements for others that will depart too e.g. goalkeeper, and obviously a left back to cover Robbo - which I think is important - I have said it before, Gomez gets injured playing on the wings, don't think his running style suits him for the LB/RB positions.
To win no6
I even predicted it 12 months out.
I’m on a roll
Apparently the Madrid fans were chanting ‘we want Mbappe’ at Hazards unveiling. Lol
That wasn't in any way a slur or expression of dissatisfaction with Hazard
I had it in my head like that fucking awful program about spoilt yank teens who burst into tears when they get a Lexus for their birthday because they were promised a Porsche. Don't ruin it for me
Well, it's more they got a Lexus and they like it, but they want a Porsche aswell.
I should hope not, but you wouldn't be overly chuffed to hear it as the player on show.
Those fools dont realize they have signed an absolute jewel, who is by himself the most dangerous player on the planet for any defence. Fucking retards.
No he is not! Good player, but can't be considered world class with 1 really good season under the belt. Messi will pass the ball on an empty net so someone else can get on the score sheet.
Yes he is.
I very much doubt their fans are unhappy about signing Eden Hazard
Ha ha. What measurement are you using in declaring him the most dangerous player on the planet to any defence?
The stains on my underwear after every game we have played agaunst Chelsea and I see him run at our defenders.
Eden Hazard has had more than one really good season.
Can we please apply 'in the future' or 'from now on' instead of 'moving forward'?
It's theatre not football to them. They'll be booing and chucking cushions at him by Christmas.
Or "in the future", as some would have put it.
