If you haven't seen this yet, it's only on iplayer for a short time now. 90 min doc about Shankly - Nature's Fire. Watched this afternoon. Not alluded to in the doc but I can see some parallels with how Klopp is running the team - the "all in it together" ethos he is creating mirrors what Shankly created. Although Shanks would probably hate the way the game is now, he was a product of his time, not this time.

I get that but fast forward to window he halfed for 16mil
He is worth a st load more than 16m fit and only Betis were in for him...
I don't think a new agent causes those issues

Agreed. I guess the proof will be in how many times he's injured over the next year or 2.

Can't QUITE see him in that somehow. He is sponsored by Opel though (as if he can't afford his own car). I think he has been driving round in an Opel "quite dull and boring" but I bet he gets a new one every year.

Maguire cost £80m, that's Eighty Million Pounds.

His performance tonight doesn't warrant a quarter of that.

Yup, and IMO he was tailer made to replace Eriksen at Spurs (Levy loves this type of deal too), even at Utd he'd be an upgrade on the likes of Lingard and has more in the tank than Mata. Plenty of Premier League sides that would be improved by signing him and I imagine most of them should have been willing to pay £20-30m for him. But no one did!

Which says a lot.

When even a mediocre player is £30m, the clubs know something we don't. £17m is a steal on paper.

Wouldn’t bother me if none of our team ever played for their national team again.

International football is monkey tennis.

That's it - Opel/Vauxhall. Same thing really. I remember reading he was sponsored by Opel in Germany.

Ditto. Not even bothered looking up the score yet.
