Klopp doesn’t buy world class players like Mbappe, instead he transforms already good players into world class players. Mbappe would command a fee of €300m, Liverpool don’t need to spend anything like that on one player.

It’s somewhere between odd and galling to read nonsense like this. He paid world record transfer fees for a goalkeeper and a defender. So he will happily buy the “finished article” when the opportunity is presented.

——

Mbappe reportedly earns £375-400k a week at PSG, or roughly twice as much as the current highest earner at Liverpool.

Presuming he won’t move for anything less than a trivial pay cut, he would therefore have to utterly decimate the pay structures.

A problem for any club. But for Scouse, where every regular player apart from TAA and Lopez is aged 25+, and therefore in the market for a huge pay demand - the one that sets them up for life -  on their next contract offer, this is either financial suicide, or else the destruction of the squad.

VVD and Allison were both world record transfer fees but does that mean they were world class?

Many a fan ridiculed the fee paid for VVD at the time and still to this day argue other players are better.

Allison has one good season at Roma, was his name bandied around as one of the best in the world at this time?

Which trio has scored more goals this season: Salah, Mané and Firmino or Rashford, Martial and Greenwood?
What's the answer now?


Obsessed.

Can you not just enjoy your own sides historically good run and the prospect of a first post backpass rule championship?

He’s absolutely no different to the loon on the Utd thread who hopefully was banned

First part of your post is absolutely ridiculous

Liverpool: Adrian, Milner, Gomez, Phillips, Williams, Lallana, Chirivella, Jones, Elliott, Minamino, Origi.

Subs: Kelleher, Mane, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Brewster, Hoever, Larouci

Everton have a massive chance to end their 20 year winless streak at Anfield.
Great to see Ox back on the bench so soon

Misc. awards for 2019.

Luckiest winners; Liverpool. Awarded a poxy penalty by VAR (more later) in the opening minutes of the champions league final which effectively decided it. They wouldn't have been anywhere near the final had expensive misfit Dembele not missed a sitter in the last minute of the first leg v. Barce'

Unluckiest winners; Man Utd. Another bizarre VAR decision, maybe the worst of a very bad lot, gave them a peno away to PSG which sent them undeservedly to the next round and lumbered MU with a hopelessly out-of-his-depth manager for at least a year too long.

Unluckiest losers; Man City. As in the previous season, very contentious officiating decisions again cost them progress in the champions league, most notably in the second leg v Spurs. Were probably the best team in Europe at the time and would surely have gone on to win it.

Player of the season; VAR. Has a finger in everything at this stage and ballsing up the game right and proper now.

Did you watch that Nou Camp game?

Barca were blessed to win 3-0, never mind 4-0, which is not to say that Dembele shouldn't have made it that. Salah missed an arguably worse one five minutes earlier when he hit the post with the goal yawning. Liverpool missed a few other relatively easy chances too, and over the two legs were clearly the better team, even without Salah and Firmino in the second game.

Agree on City - they've been hard done by in Europe the past two seasons, although they themselves got a very dodgy handball penalty award in the Wembley game against Spurs.

Hard done by the season Liverpool knocked them out 5-1?? When you lose by that margin you can't cry arse about being hard done by.

Goals change games. Sane had one wrongly disallowed in each leg. The second leg one, in particular, would have made it 2-0 on the night and 3-2 overall. Definitely a momentum shifter. Doesn’t mean they would have won the tie, but it would have made a nervous Liverpool’s job a hell of a lot harder. Instead, Salah equalized early in the second half and it was game over.

You sure about that?? I barely recall them having any chances in the first leg bar a Sane shot that he pulled wide across the goal.

Yes. Look on YouTube or read the match reports from those games.

I don’t remember a disallowed goal either and don’t see anything in this report...https://www.theguardian.com/football/live/2018/apr/04/liverpool-v-manchester-city-champions-league-quarter-final-first-leg-live?page=with:block-5ac523abe4b059f638f1692a

I actually remember Trent having a decent game against Sane

This one has it... 86 minutes... although from the accompanying photo is looks incredibly tight.

Oh gotcha...here it is on this link around the 10 min mark. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FuGmPus-SGg

Looked offside to me! ;)

What a team. What a performance.
Men against boys.
What a time to be a Red. Onto the next one.

Crikey but we are good!

To do that to the team in second place on their own patch is very, very impressive!

A few lads seem rattled that Everton can attract a big name manager and have serious plans in place for a new stadium

Great to see progress for the original club in the city
Fans of the neighbouring club have very short memories

Helps to have a long memory when you're an Everton fan   ;D

We've conquered all of Europe the World.
Allez Allez Allez....

World Champs has a nice ring to it!

Seem to be picking up an injury every game, which is a little worrying.

Depending on the length of Matip and Lovren’s injuries and with Fab also being out, I wonder does Klopp consider a Caulker type loan deal for a center back? Van Den Berg is no were near ready and Hendo is grand against the likes of Monterey Aquarium but don’t want him as first choice back up against anyone in the League.

Didn't get to see it but heard Monterrey gave a good account of themselves.

Hopefully Virg back for the final and go full strength
