    Apparently we've opened formal negotiations with RBL for Timo Werner, with him telling them he wants to play for us.

    His price, his age, & his continuing great stats this season make this a no brainer imo, & it's great to hear another massive prospect who could probably pick any club in the world wants us above all others.

    Ill admit though, I've not seen him play bat the odd cl game. What's the feeling amongst those who have? Is he a good fit for us?

    Can I just point out that anyone who "scouted" Karius (ie watched him play twice in the Bundesliga) and said he was great can fuck off.

    It's also worth noting that quite a few of our recent signings who have settled in quickly have played some football in this country before joining us

    How often did you watch him then?

    *Whistles*
    Yup I was sold short to, so I agree with your point..  Was it just the desperation in wanting A.N.Other keeper that wasn't Mingolet..  probably..

    I know you're fucking stupid, but do I really have to repeat myself in every thread, every day?

    I already stated several times that I was sooooo desperate to see the back of Mignolet that I had high hopes for karius, despite admitting REPEATEDLY that I had never, ever seen him play.

    In fact, in the thread announcing his signing, all I did was voice concern that he seemed quite short, and apparently had a tendency to punch crosses, not catch them - according to an article I had read, but I wasn't sure because I HAD NEVER SEEN HIM PLAY.

    Of course I was immediately shut down by the usual clappers who said he caught "99% of all crosses" or somesuch bollocks, and because he'd been voted second best keeper in Germany, I shouldn't worry.

    I hope this clears it all up for you, and ensures we don't have to do this again, tomorrow.

    He's not going to be expected to slot straight in imo.

    Top teams are moving more into the strategy of buying replacement players a season or so before the player they're going to replace leaves, giving them time to bed into the side with less pressure to immediately perform.

    Given their age & quality, it's hard to imagine all three of our front three still being here past summer 2021, so bringing Werner in the summer & using him regularly but not every major match would fit that strategy.

    If we go all out for him in January then it won't be to try to secure the league this season, but to ensure we have a replacement lined up for either Mane or Salah, who'll leave in the summer, imo of course.

    Can I suggest changing the title to "If you Werner be my Liver"? Ay? Ay? Anybody?

    I don't know if he's willing to join and become a rotation player but for 35 mill we should do everything we can in order to sign him.

    Is there any truth to this figure, and if it did exist why didn't big clubs go for him in the summer? I would say even if it cost £83,000,001 to sign him, we should. The prem has so many more games than the Blundersliga, he will be happy to rotate

    Because he just signed a contract and maybe promised them another year like Suarez basically did. Shows character.

    Haven’t we had a number of threads on this lad going back years?

    He can’t play in loud stadiums. Nailed on for City surely
