    That pass to Sturridge some minutes ago was Messi-like.
    Spartak were panned but they equalled possession and distance travelled.
    In their last 9 away games against English teams ( so games played in England) . they'd won four , drawn four and only lost once !
    Amazing performance from Coutinho plus three goals .

    Hope there's a clip somewhere showing his best bits tonight .

    Some of the passes were sublime!

    No chance we get him in January.

    Make an offer to Liverpool next month to sign him next summer. They should be ready to at least talk regarding that. Offer 80-90m + a bunch of heavy performance bonuses like CL titles and Balon DOr's.
    Just get a better midfield

    I wouldnt even mind a Suarez + money type swap for Coutinho. Then pay Griezmann by out and we can play 4-2-3-1

    They wont want Suarez dont think and not for any decent fee.

    Suarez this season is about exact opposite of player they want to have in their front three.

    Its needed. + a regista CM. Yes it would cost us 250-300 just for those two but we need to break the bank on quality.

    Paul Joyce reporting that Coutinho himself refused to commit his future to Liverpool after yesterdays game.

    I'm not reading or posting anything from Sport or MD, but this comes from an reliable Liverpool source.

    If he is to come, I'm sure it will be in summer, no way we spend that much in Jan.

    I agree, but seal a deal for him to come next summer in January.

    So another doesn't try to hijack it later.

    It makes zero sense for him to come in January. You think he’ll want to sit on the sidelines for the champions league? The best thing for him is to complete the season with Liverpool and leave in the summer.

    It doesn't mean anything when he doesn't commit himself to Liverpool. In the end it lays in the hands of Liverpool and as long as they don't want to sell he won't go anywhere. They might look already for a replacement (Keita?) though.

    This is fantasy talk. Suarez isnt worth anything in the state he's in. The guy will be 31 in a month and has a huge and lengthy contract. If we manage to even offload him for free, that would be a massive achievement. If we are going to spend 300m on Griezmann and Coutinho plus replacing Masche, Pique and Verma, I'm sure we would have to make some good sales to finance this bonanza. Our squad is massive and the wage budget is through the roof.

    Who do you want signed?

    Assuming Barca need a more creative midfielder and a striker?

    He'll come in the summer if he does come.

    Ye, IF we are able to sign him, it should be for the summer. This year we wont get anywhere anyways and he wont be able to play CL.
    A predeal would be nice.

    We all know what we think about dailystar, but one could wish they were right for once

    That + Arthur would be a great winter window, or atleast making predeals with them for summer.
