Assume nothing. Honestly, this isn't over yet.
Stop it man. Dont do it to yourself
I'm guessing Klopp is playing a long game – he identified VVD as the defender he wants and will get him in the team eventually, even if it's not this summer or this season, just like Keita. It looks bad if you think Matip and Lovren are a "disaster" that urgently needs some kind of solution, evidently Klopp doesn't see it this way.
You'll be like, he kept the faith in our darkest hour, when the weak of heart wavered and lost hope, he stood, a beacon of hope, like Winston Churchill facing the power of the third reich in 1940.
Agreed. We must have been worried about Soton reporting us to the FA, and Soton have been desperate to prove a point about selling this summer. So they obviously havent inivited us back to do a deal. Klopp must feel we have a chance of getting him in january.
Hopefully the relationship between VVD and Soton continue to sour.
No you'll be like a guy whos been given a girls phone number youve dialled it 5 times and its a dead tone, so you try changing the last digit to see how that goes.
Sir you wont be doing any fingering this evening.
No injuries and Gomez to impress as CB is what we're praying for now.
Even though large tracts of Merseyside and many old and famous twitter accounts have fallen or may fall into the grip of transfer day despair and all the odious apparatus of Talk Sport, we shall not flag or fail.
We shall go on to the end, we shall sign Van Dijk in France,
we shall sign Van Dijk on the seas and oceans,
we shall sign Van Dijk with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend Mignolet's goals, whatever the cost may be,
we shall sign Van Dijk on the beaches,
we shall sign Van Dijk on the landing grounds,
we shall sign Van Dijk in the fields and in the streets,
we shall sign Van Dijk in the hills;
we shall never surrender!!
If Churchill had had Matip and Lovren as the spine of his defense forces way back then, we'd all be sprechening Deutsch right now...
Klopp has spent just over £4m on central defenders since he arrived
Steven Caulker - LOAN
Joel Matip - FREE
Ragnar Klavan - £4.2m
Is it too late to get Lucas back on loan for the season?
Caulker was a striker
He was brought in due to defensive shortages but only made a few sub appearances as a striker.
Did he play at centre half in a FA cup game?
I only remember he was useless
I saw Caulker playing for the GB team at Old Trafford in the 2012 Olympics. He made a good impression on me. He seemed to be a defender who concentrated on his positioning.
He has had well documented mental health issues which have obviously effected his development.
Like @Portly I thought he was going to end up as a top defender.
