    Yes..

    Even though Kroos' personal preference may not be Liverpool, it shouldn't have deterred Liverpool from pursuing him.

    The contract situation hardly matters if the buying party identifies someone as a valuable addition to the team.

    But whatever.
    Haha you actually think Kroos might have picked Liverpool over Real Madrid/staying at Bayern Munich?

    There are plenty of conversations in football and no doubt someone spoke to his agent and heard he wasn't interested or we heard his wage demands and didn't follow up.

    Wtf? The contract situation makes every difference. If a player only has 1 year left on his contract and can leave on a free the following summer, his value dramatically drops compared to a player who still has 3+ years to run.

    If Kroos still had 2-5 years left on his contract, Bayern wouldn't have sold unless it was 30-40mil+

    Drops Johnson. Good
    Keep Balo. Bad
    Drops Coutinho. Bad. Why?

    Henderson is a fit youg lad, pointless resting him this early on in the season. aking him of early if we're winning (lol) fair enough but we need fast starts and a large part of that is from Henderson's intensity.

    True, but the manner in which we started that game was disgraceful.

    If we win this game, we could be 1 point behind Man City (they're losing 2-0 to West Ham).

    We were a shambles at the start yeah. Sakho scoring a wonder goal didn't help.

    But we were a stripped team and we gave it a good go. Upton Park has always been a hard place to go under Sam but they look the **** this season

    I can't even comprehend how he has given Balotelli yet another chance.
    It's becoming comical.

    All he needs is for Balotelli to score a single, undeserved tap in and that will give him justification to start that useless Italian until Sturridge returns.

    Why does Coutinho get dropped after being our best player and not even playing 90

    Rodgers selections make no sense sometimes.
    No henderson, no coutinho, Balotelli playing...

    If we don't win this I would expect a lot of criticism here.

    Agreed, Rodgers selections usually are nonsensical....

    Real lack of creativity in midfield bar Gerrard.

    Allen is so limited as a footballer that it's not even funny, rarely capable of playing anything other the a sideways/backwards pass.
