    No sign of him in the Austrian training camp, no mention of any kind of injury... Did we wrap him in cotton wool before a potential sale?

    And why aren't we more excited about Origi?

    Has he even been credibly linked with a move away from us? Seems like we are speculating on a lot of sales , Origi, Shaq, Wilson, Gruijic that so far havent got any traction. If the idea is that these sales are going to fund any spend then we are rapidly running out of time for that to happen.

    Window doesn't slam shut until October, so plenty of time.

    It is weird with Massive Divock, people keep talking about a move to Leeds or Villa despite no mention from anyone linked to the clubs that I'm aware.

    It's almost like it's the fans trying to make the sales pitch.

    Yes, Aston Villa's interest has been confirmed, including by the Birmingham local press. Leeds interest seems to be real as well.

    Maybe we have already sold him, and Villa will just unleash the Divock on the opening day of the season.

    Sure there is time left in the window but I doubt Klopp wants to be trying to add 2 or 3 new players to the squad after the season has started.

    Beginning to think it will be Thiago or nobody

    Because he's 25 and has scored 33 goals in the  6 years since we signed him.

    It's a remarkably similar record to David N'Gog, albeit he managed to get on the field more.

    He must be somewhere near a corner.

    Not sure if Leeds could afford him after just splashing 26m on Rodrigo from Valencia, but who knows.

    N'Gog - In three seasons - 19 in 94 (an average of one in five goals to apps)

    Origi - In FOUR seasons (he's been here five seasons and was out on loan for one of them) - 34 in 140 for Origi (an average of one in four)

    It'd be interesting to see how many times they each "appeared" in their preferred position though..

    I don't think it would be that interesting , I'd take Origi over N'Gog but neither are particularly good

    The only thing Origi "got going for him" is the fact that he has scored a few memorable goals for us in important matches. Basically he's like Smicer, cult hero status but not really good enough.
    He should have been sold last summer when his stock peaked.
    On some level I'm OK with him staying put, but I just don't trust him.

    Haha, actually not that far. But he's in that image along with someone else. Look for the painting.

    I think N'Gog also got shunted out on the wing a bit, but he wasn't a bad finisher. He wasn't good enough but he was a kid we took a punt on, like Origi.

    It's a weird one, at times Origi has looked awesome, but he's more often than not looked like games just pass him by and he's not as silky skilled as the rest of the front three. He'll go somewhere and do well playing week in, week out, but I'm losing patience with his lame displays now, and I really wanted him to come good to be honest, because he seems a likable lad.

    Many of those are substitute appearances, Id be more interested to see his goals per 90 mins
