You were doing so well there, why did you have to spoil it at the end?
I think a pretty major cull is needed
Manniger/Karius/Ming - any 2 of them.
Everyone who is on loan
Selling Can will be stupid.
Look he's the closest thing we have to a Gerrard.
Marauding runs - check
Physique - check
Passing - check
Shooting - check
Aggression - check
Abit of that petulance - check
Gerrard is obviously better in all the above but with some improvement and consistency from Can, he could evolved into a very competent player, he has the potential. And he has only just turned 23.
We'd be stupid to sell anyone that's close to a first team slot for anything other than silly money.
We need to add to the squad - selling Can, Coutinho, etc - means we have to replace them just to maintain current squad levels.
Watching the game on Sunday, Gerrard is still 10 times better than Can
Not selling him when he doesn't sign a new contract would be stupid.
Sorry Red but I don't see any major cull at all. Klopp has hinted at that many times and there's no way we are selling off so many senior players when what we actually need to do is substantially strengthen the first team squad (assuming we make Euro football).
Manninger/Moreno/Lucas/Studge will go as will Sakho\Markovic\Wisdom\Flanno any other senior player on loan now.
That frees up three real slots and we are already maybe 5 short = 8 senior players inbound this Summer, and that's a stretch.
Why the fuck would sell our current best no 9.
Regardless of the fact we may need a more prolific striker he's definitely worth having in the squad at a minimum.
Get rid of
Can someone please edit this title? It's killing me.
Selling Firmino would be insanely stupid.
Re Sakho; we'll get about 20M for him I reckon.
Some media speculation this morning that Southampton will offer £20m for Sakho. How much of that is us blowing a smoke screen saying "You ARE interested" is debatable.
Anyway, if it is true. It could be a £20m+Sakho bid for VVD in the summer.
Fucking hell. Lucas is closer to
a Gerrard than Can.

If he keeps playing well and helps Palace stay up, we should at least get our money back.
Which would be acceptable
