If none of us, Arsenal or Chelsea really sort ourselves out in the next couple of years then all Klopp has to do to win a title is outstay Pep.

Football is a funny game. If Liverpool continue on this upwards trend then Madric/ Barca will likely come calling for the likes of Salah, Mane and VVD.

The likes of TAA, Robertson and VVD played out of their skin last season and there's already signs that their defence isn't as solid time time around.

I think Liverpool are here to stay as title challengers as long as Klopp is there, however it's hard to keep players motivated for that length of time which was part of his undoing at Dortmund.

"In both instances the club were not convinced that the players wanted to move to United/for the right reasons. After seeing how our recent transfer policy has failed, I am actually really happy that Ed didn't' 'deliver' either of them. It shows a change in our transfer policy that will serve us well in the long run."

Yes, I agree.

But I also wonder why it took us until the final 10 days of the window to discover this.

Well, I don't think that Dybala was considered until he was offered to us. And then club then rightly came to the decision he wasn't the right man for us.

With Eriksen, I think that Levy was looking to sell him to Real Madrid or another foreign club. When that didn't materialise, he likely then made it known to us that he was available for the right price. But we again decided that he wouldn't be joining for the right motivations.

Uncertainty over Pogba probably also impacted on who were were looking at and when.

Is Eriksen on a free next summer? Would be a great replacement for Pogba should he go to Real next year.

Eriksen wants Madrid though.

Surely Madrid would just take Eriksen for free over spending £100m on Pogba and letting us have him for free

In fact they'd probably get both and let someone else go again.

I don't think that is quite true. The side he has at the moment is unbelievable. There will come a point when that begins to decline. Would he have the appetite/ability to rebuild another squad capable of challenging. I've only known one manager who was consistently able to do this in the modern game at one club

Klopp has twice had teams improve and play good football but after a few years they declined. Could happen again at Liverpool or someone else may fill in the gap vacated by Pep. City are a well run club. They are here to stay.
