ROB GUTMANN shares the gutter platform with Gareth Roberts, Neil Atkinson and Craig Rimmer to discuss the radio silence from the club, the speculation from the press as well as right backs, sub goalies and Jurgen Klopp.
Gareth on his lap top. The rest on a mic. You heard it here first. Or second.
Once again i find myself fully agreeing with Neil. I have to however now bring a depressing tone. Do people seriously believe we are going to sign the 2 quality goal getters that Neil is speaking about?? I barely think we’re going to get one! The club is just desperate to continue down this road to medoocrity and we seem to want to do it at lightning speed!!
Early days, Chris. Don’t panic yet, even though I suspect we’ll be disappointed and only cement our mid-table position.
As long as BR is the manager and FSG are the owner there is sadly no chance of Liverpool competing for top hounors anytime soon. Mignolet is not really a number 1 for a club of our size, yet we sign a number 2. He is a big upgrade on the worst GK Brad Jones, but not on Mignolet and we needed more of a number 1 than a nr. 2.
James Milner will be this summers best signing..
Danny Ings is a very good player but i suspect he made a huge mistake joining us because he will never be played by BR or maybe he will be played at LWB?
Kovacic is close guys, woppi!!! Who the fuck is he replacing and where the fuck is he going to play???? No games for you Ibe,Markovic and Emre then. See you lataaaaaaaaaaa!!!!
I strongly suspect there will not be a top striker coming in at all… Ings,Origi,Sturridge and Lambert are it!
Guys completely agree with everything. For years the Mancs have been doing exactly this. They’ve been £400m/£500m/£600m in debt for years but each year they wouldxleak that their interested in the best players around the World. They’d never buy them….. And would eventually spend their relatively small pot of cash on one maybe two signings. We on the other hand directly link ourselves to shite…… And that’s the perception that goes around the World!!!! Right now for example we don’t link ourselves with Cech or Lloris (even though we’d not get them) we go for Bigdan the injury prone 3rd choice Bolton Keeper!!!! It’s ridiculous!!!
Digne is a left-back, fyi.
We need another full back, so we should go and buy a good one. Clyne seems to fit the bill. Last season right back was a problem position for us. Clyne fixes the problem. Get him in early and he has a full pre-season with the team.
I don’t hold at all with this idea that you only need quality at the front. Yes, there is the example of 2013/14 when we scored all those goals, but that is incredibly difficult to recreate. Invest in goals, then find yourself with a miss-firing superstar on your hands and you run the risk of not having the quality across the rest of the pitch to scrape the results against supposedly lesser opposition.
And Neil’s burgeoning pyromania is a concern for us all….
