    In what scenario that could be related to Coutinho would you wait 6 months? Coutinho wasn't given the option to go last summer but would've if Liverpool had made him available. Instead it seems he needed to do another few months of pounding the table behind the scenes till he got his way. Liverpool far more comfortable in the knowledge that they have the quality to finish top 4 with Salah providing the attacking threat and VVD to shore up the defense (an attempt at signing a GK to come in Jan too surely). Those were questions that still needed answering last summer. Makes sense for all parties to get it done now imo.

    It does though. If someone said you can improve your lifestyle and career in virtually every way possible now or in 6 months time what would you choose? I don't see any logic whatsoever to waiting another 6 months for Barca or Coutinho. Liverpool are still developing tbf and aren't winning anything this season.

    More money, more trophies, better lifesfyle, more glamorous club, better league, better teammates etc. He gains a few things tbf.

    I think 160 mill is crazy money tbh. For me, Coutinho is a brilliant player but not properly elite,top tier. When you think Liverpool paid 8 mill (?) for him it's actually some business. I don't blame Coutinho at all either. There's no loyalty in football any more and exactly like Van Dijk did already this season, he's forced a move that gives him a better wage and a far better chance of winning trophies. When Barca or Real come calling it's a matter of when not if.

    Dunno why you have to undermine me with every single post but anyway that's besides the point... I addressed why Sunderland is a fine move for him but you deleted that from what you quoted to suit your point. The football they play isn't even that bad at all either.

    Jesse Lingard has to be on PEDs. Only explanation.

    Really? I don't think the benefit of proper competitive football playing at a decent standard can be underestimated. The Championship is a million miles tougher than the Youth Cup. Way more to be learned playing at that level. If you look at the UK and Ireland's best players at the moment. Kane, Vardy, Alli, Lallana, Delph, Stones, Coleman, Bale, Ramsey etc etc. They all have the same thing in common, learned a lot of their trade in the lower leagues. I don't think that's a coincidence. Even nowadays when young footballers are being thrown thousands of pounds at a stupidly young age I don't think putting them out of their comfort zone and letting them see first hand how things aren't that easy does no harm. Sunderland are a big club with high expectations. Seems a pretty great fit for a guy who's anticipated to be the next big thing at a club the size of Liverpool. Also the added bonus that he gets to work with someone like Chris Coleman again who clearly rates him highly and will give him ample opportunities.

    75 mill is mental but then again 40 mill for Salah now looks like the bargain of the century. It's all relative to how the player performs really. If he helps fix that defense he'll be worth every penny. Massively important signing for Liverpool. Still need a few more in but big step in the right direction.

    Are Arsenal - Liverpool games ever not brilliant? What a game.

    City played nowhere near their best and still were utterly dominant. Second year in a row there's gonna be no title race.
