    It's mad to think that none of our backroom staff have any CL experience. That's atrocious. A far cry from the days when we had Ayestran, Herrero and latterly Sammy Lee and Clarke behind the scenes.

    is SUG still about btw?

    If so, what does he call himself?
    He's usually about from time to time, matchdays usually on a new pseudonym.

    Will be nice when I look forward to the matches again, rather than wondering how badly we're going to get battered this week.

    I mean you lot should make 2nd or 3rd place.

    Soton will probably drop.
    Arsenal are terrible and Sanchez will go back to being the pile of **** I envisaged him to be in the second half of the season.
    City are just lol.

    Want to bet he doesn't? Also at what point in his career was he a pile of crap? At Udinese? At Barca? You chat utter **** sometimes...

    To be a pile of crap he'd have to be scoring own goals and making mistakes leading to goals anyway to cancel out his current form.

    Guardian report that Origi wants to join us in January instead of waiting until the season end.
    To be honest I don't blame him - he can see just how bad our strikers are right now and this really is a great opportunity for him to show us what he can do and secure a solid place in our squad.

    Of course Lille remain the obstacle.
    As mentioned above, the deal was only done because we allowed him to stay for a year, therefore I'm sure a good amount of compensation would have to be payed for us to get him early.

    Not sure how reliable the Guardian is as a source but if it is true, that's fairly promising!

    Why "should" we?
    We don't have the second or third best team.

    Arsenal are bloody awful with the exception of sanchez but they're still better than us.
    Again with city, they won't win the title but they're still better than us.

    I agree that soton will eventually drop but they have one hell of a lead.

    It just seems like you're building us up for lols because the league is getting too boring with your team being so dominant...

    I imagine we would soften the blow by sending either Borini or Balotelli to them for the remainder of the season too.

    I think Origi is doing "okay" at Lille - not brilliantly - maybe not even that according to a friend who supports Lille. I would rather we stick to the long term plan and besides piling on so much pressure on such a young lad will not end well.

    If you want immediate results, you need to buy proven talent.

    He's got 3 from 11 and one was a penalty? or was it two? Also he hadn't really nailed his position as a starter until this season and even then he's started 8/11 games and missed 3 games (one from injury I believe). The last time he won a game with Lille was on 27th September.. Lille are doing even worse than us

    Oh and I'm pretty sure Lille said no.
    Not surprising considering in 14 games, they have scored 7 goals - 3 of them coming from Origi, the next closest "leading" goalscorer has 1 goal.

    I don't see why that wouldn't be a decent deal for them?
    Balotelli has been dire but I think he could overpower the opponents and do well in the French league for a while.
    It's more likely we'd send Borini though unfortunately :/

    Lille are in a nice position - they know we're arguably desperate for a decent Sturridge fall back option so they can try to get something good out of this.

    3 in 11 is better than the 0 league goals our three available strikers have...

    Origi isn't just gonna set the world alight but at least he has shown sparks internationally and hopefully we can transfer that confidence to club level.
    I think the main thing is that a kid his age will try hard - he needs to go all out to do th best for his career.

    His arrival won't noticeably improve our season with a 3 in 11 record. Developing in a structured manner is really important - remember he's younger than Sterling by ~ 5 months. He hasn't trained with us and he hasn't had the opportunity to adapt to our league - I imagine his link up play with Sterling, Sturridge etc will be what makes him such a good player for us but he hasn't had the chance to even play with these players.

    As LFC supports we have to accept the club chose to invest in our future - you shouldn't expect or even strive for a spectacular performance in the league this season.

    Lol at people mentioning Origi as a potential solver of your problems.

    Guys finishing is terrible and while he has technique he's dodgy on the ball. All he is is a fast black man, real talk if he comes in and starts he's going to look like Yaya Sanogo. People are letting the likes of Gervinho, Hazard, Cabaye cloud their judgement of this guys ability.

    There was a point where Sanchez scored his first league goal in February for Barca, in the 2012/13 season.

    If that's not being an utter pile of crap then I don't know what is. I guess Ozil in 2014 has done great.

    I said he's start playing like a pile of crap, not that he is a pile of crap. Stop listening to Zurich, also after Ozil don't think you lot should be so confident Sanchez will keep up this form.

    If Origi provides that movement we have been missing, puts in a better shift than Balotelli aswell as learning to ****ing stay onside, then I would take him in Jan. He doesn't need to bag loads of goals himself, just create space for others to score because none of our midfielders have any space at all atm.

    Jelle Vossen's a better forward.

    Would you rather stick with Balotelli?
