    Just finished watching the Athletic Bilbao game. Inaki Williams is vastly overpriced at £44m. Apparently he is Klopp's no.1 target but he is such an average player, Wilfred Zaha level.

    The only thing I know about him is that he's insanely fast on FIFA...

    If Klopp's targeting him, he knows he can be useful in our system. It's likely we'll have European football next season so maybe he's looking for a little depth.

    £44m does seem very excessive for a relitavely unknown player though...

    His finishing was very poor, he was uninspiring with decision making. He just seems like a bit of an expensive Oxlade-Chamberlain really, without the benefit of a homegrown status. I don't see him ever becoming a top class player, he's probably going to be the next Cuadrado. I watch La Liga quite a lot, especially Bilbao as I like the uniqueness of their commitment to fielding an entire team of Basque players.

    Clubs know of the TV deal and Bilbao don't sell cheap anyway.

    Also, just bagged a ticket to the Watford game

    Yeah very true. I'm confident with whoever Klopp signs though, regardless of price. He's pretty shrewd in general though so if he were to spend big, it would be for a reason.

    Nice one mate! I do want to go to another Liverpool game but I'm not a member and none of my mates are fans of the club so I'd hate to go alone.

    Just get Light Membership, you'd be able to access the Additional Members Sale for most games, FA Cup will be your best bet.

    I go on my own anyway, tricky enough getting one seat, let alone two together.

    The same rumour appeared this time last year from the same source so it looks like they are simply recycling it. You are only picking up on it now because Coutinho is in form.

    Contract doesn't end until 2020 so if Pogba is worth £85m than we will just ask a figure around that value, Barca ain't going to fork out that kind of money for Coutinho, he is great but he is no Suarez.

    Exactly, we'd just ask for ridiculous money and Barca would move on.

    Coutinho wouldn't force a move for a few years anyway because he isn't at the level where he'd consistently start for a side like Barca.
    He loves it here and he's tight with Firmino.

    If United can be as bad as they are and keep DDG, I'm sure we'll be okay...

    Coutinho happily signed an extension not that long ago. Players find it tough to leave Klopp and many found to their detriment at Dortmund.

    If anything, Coutinho should see that he could be a vital cog in a side that could win trophies rather than a squad player for Barcelona.

    Who would he replace? I guess he'd be one of the midfield trio but he's not going to replace Iniesta or Rakitic..

    Barca don't go for guys who turn up every other week.

    Besides, they just bought Andre Gomes for £45million.

    Just sell him to United for £110M.

    Poor Ings.. heartbreaking after such a long and serious injury just now.

    From a selfish point of view, it's a shame we didn't sell in the summer now.

    I think that's his career over at Liverpool. He'll be out till around the summer and then we'll either send on loan or let him leave imo.

    Yeah, unfortunately that's him done here.

    It's a shame because he had so much promise, but there's already Firmino, Sturridge and Origi ahead of him regardless of his injury.

    Do we know the cause of the injury?
    I'm just bricking it about the idea of Coutinho/Firmino getting injured this season...

    Might just be a crock. Wonder if it was the same knee?

    We'd probably manage if one got injured but when a couple are out it starts to look dicey. Mane in January will be tough to deal with.

    Apparently from a tackle he made against Tottenham. I remember him coming out quite badly from a 50/50 and thinking ah sh**.
