    Is there a such thing as e tickets at Liverpool? A pal is helping someone he knows sell hospitality tickets for your game on Saturday, and says they come in the form of an E ticket which is sent by email. Was a bit suspicious when I saw it to say the least.

    So KDB is out for like 6 weeks which means he'll miss the capital one cup final. All we need now is Aguero's legs to break down and then we'll have a great chance to win the cup.
    Think he's out for 10 weeks.

    Yea Aguero being out would be the biggest plus for us. Considering how much of a moaner Yaya Toure is, I think he'll start the final which would only benefit us since our midfield could run him out of the game (he's gotten pretty lazy these days).

    Would be nice to see the squad celebrate winning the League Cup while Sterling gets a losers medal.

    Looks like Texiera isn't happening this window. Shaktar saying they want his release clause money (over 70mil euros) whereas we've only offered about half that.

    No Henderson for tomorrow, Clyne 50/50, Klopp will field a young side. Coutinho close to return to training.

    Maybe we'll see Clyne and Flanagan each get 45 minutes? Both need to be managed but I don't think we have anyone else obvious to play there.

    Yea I think it makes sense to take a risk in this game. We're in one cup final and you'd think the League and EL become higher priorities than the FA Cup.

    Few fans getting vocal on Twitter suggesting we should just throw the money at Shakhtar for Teixeira. Do they not understand how businesses work? You need to stick to your valuations, and come to an agreement, because that's the way of the world. We can't be being extorted.

    If we end up doing that everyone will have unrealistic expectations of him immediately.

    This.

    Imagine if he had a slow start after we paid fifty ****ing million for him. It would do nobody - the club, him or the fans - any favours.

    Schalke still trying to get Matip to sign a new contract. Guess we don't have a pre-contract with him yet (or any other club).

    "Hendo can be an option. He did really well for the team in a difficult time with a long-term injury, still having problems, only pain but it's always pain."

    "We now are on a really good way but we need to use these two days and hopefully he has recovered after an intensive time and is back in the race."

    From the sounds of it, Henderson is still carrying the same injury as he had before and is just being given a break this weekend. Very worrying though

    Well sounds like we need to find a proper long term fix whether at the end of this season or during the time off before pre/new season starts..

    If we don't value him at £38m then we're valuing him incorrectly. He's well worth it in total isolation, and especially to a team like us, going through the worst goalscoring spell in our seriously successful history (Norwich aside).

    He's ****ed something up at the back of his foot, and it means that he'll always be in pain playing with it.

    I'd agree if we had say another 5 points and looked like the signing could be the difference between qualifying for CL football by finishing top 4 or not. Unfortunately I think we've left ourselves too much to do.

    You're looking at it the wrong way - we're not getting top four and we won't be able to sign his quality of player in the summer as a result. We don't spend extra just because he might make the difference this season - but because he's bloody good and he'd be bloody good for us for a number of years. Buy him while we can because there's a much lower chance of us getting him or someone of his quality in the summer.

    Compare him to the recent exports from the Ukraine league and he shits all over them in terms of productivity. He's got more goals and assists this half season than Willian and Douglas Costa's last full seasons combined. One of them is Chelsea's player of the season so far and the other is the Bliga player of the season so far.

    I wouldn't of minded £38m because as Pimped said, we are desperate for goalscorers but £50m is just too much.

    £50m, though.

    I'm hoping the Klopp factor will help us attract some better players. He's gotten himself 7 months to bed into the club and surrounding and then he'll be able to sell his project/dream to players with typical Klopp enthusiasm. We're still the 9th richest club in revenues so we can pay handsomely. In the past it's been the lack of CL football and arguably lack of star manager. At least we've picked up the latter.
