Done and dusted?

Am I being cynical when thinking, even, that any deal for taking Werner to LFC is already long gone done and dusted? All the chats, the negotiations allegedly between the clubs and the individual have already taken place, it’s a done deal? I watched him on Saturday, good, top class player, no question he hits all the right buttons.

The only objection to that process of thought is: 1. Who is he going to replace, who is going to drop out to make way for him? 2. Is he going to be happy warming the bench, possibly game in, game out?

By extension, if I’m right, who is on the way out? To lose any of the front three would be disastrous

I’ve always avoided such speculation like the plague, always insisting that we see a player in a Red shirt, at Anfield, manager’s arm around him, signing a paper.

But is that me being cynical, or just stupid?

PS Troy Deeney had gone skywards in my estimation. He’s refusing to play, absolutely correct, he’s got his little boy, 5 months old at home, and who has breathing problems. Spot on decision by the man.

for me:

a) werner is not a done deal.

b) theres no bench warming stuff here. We have several players and 4 compettions. Shaqiri is a bench warmer cos he is never fit and only plays one position.

Jones, elliott, minamino are all in a queue along with origi. With respect to them currently werner is a step up. the first 3 would be players who can step up though.

We need 4 or 5 players for the 3 places up top to actually compete.

We have 6 midfielders in milner, henderson, fabinho, wijnaldum, keita and ox and all get a game. some are injured some are not.

why would the forwards be any different?

After that on deeney. If he has his personal issue he should take care of it. It is also agitating further than him just not taking care of what he should be taking care of so its not just him doing the right thing. he is going further than that and tipping into self interest for his club too.

Firmino's days are done and dusted. May get a run in the league cup.

Be interesting to see what teams do in the transfer market after all this Corona business

I hope Liverpool as a club have utilised the time wisely and made sure players that needed a rest have had one as well as making sure that the lads have kept in reasonable shape

Oh bless ‘im. There’s always one isn't there?

Many thanks to my fellow Reds for their views, all food for thought and much appreciated.

I'm sure we will be as ready as can be to return, I've got every faith in us in terms of squad management, fitness levels etc.

We've played with basically the same starting 11 for nearly three years now and will lose Salah and Mane for two months after signing no one last summer.

If the money is there we absolutely need to sign 3 players in my opinion and Werner would be an excellent start. Anything else will be a joke.

the point above is IF there is money.

As for 3 players?

Where?

We've a fully squad bar left full so players need to go.

Werner coming in to my mind would create a 5 man forward line with minamino and the first choice 3 then theres the kiddies. already that puts players like shaqiri on the chopping block. Origi as well potentially.

We just need to be careful with the squad numbers as the competition needs to be strong but we can't have people giving up and becoming layabouts. Klopp won't stand for it.

Of course players need to go. That goes without saying.

what if notbody can afford them any more?

Shaqirir won't find a new club easily imo. our model was to buy them cheap and not lose. so we had 12mil in him and a handy 12mil to get back this summer but we're not getting that now.

I'd be frankly shocked if we spend 50mil on a player now when we were furloughing non playing star 8 weeks ago. we all need to see that the club is about to lose 100mil or something this season

Of this happens its been rumoured the club will seek to extend contracts of players like Lallana.

Agreed. That's why I said if the money is there, because it probably won't be but you never know.
