McGinn is a good player - he may not be as technically sound as Gini, but he's a tough, aggressive midfielder.
Is he at GIni's class? No.
But can he get close to it? Dunno, but would you have...
Wait - we finished 3rd place because Matip is a better player or because Nat Phillips is fine and was available when we needed him?
It does work.
A players value is directly linked to his ability to contribute to the team, not some hypothetical notion of how more talented they are.
From Gini to McGinn would be a travesty, considering that we also let the mf go for free as well.
And now we have to fucking sell Neco and Philips to "raise funds".
Yeah that logic doesn't work. The fact that he's more available doesn't make him a better player. It's like saying well, Kuyt was better than Torres because he was never injured.
From Gini to McGinn would be a pretty big downgrade imo.
Hopefully Villa stick with their 50m valuation.
Is the goal to win the league or finish above Everton, Spurs, Arse, Newcastle?
We finally have a manager and a first team capable of winning the league and the champions league. The only thing...
Klopp is an admirer of McGinn but with Villa wanting £50 million for the Scotland international any deal currently looking unrealistic this summer. #LFC
Lovern, he's still got 'it'.
Needless foul out in the flank.
Gets booked. Will miss the next round if they progress.
I'd like to keep him as well, but I think this may be a case of big Nat pushing for a move himself. In a way, he probably feels a bit let down with how we've treated him.
We kept him from that...
In the words of Stulikesdrums, we are dickheads!
I'd be in favour of keeping him. In some PL games he may well be out best option, plus there's too many doubts about the other CBs. We gambled last year and it backfired miserably. We shouldn't...
I'd rather have a good defender available for a majority of the season, than a great defender available for a third
