Ed all I am seeing is talk of Werner and Sancho. Whilst I appreciate 100% categorically neither is happening, is there even any interest what so ever from us?

{Ed002's Note - At least you have moved on from Mbappe.
Timo Werner (S) RBL know of the interest of Chelsea who consider TW as a suitable replacement for Giroud - but they have other preferred options. Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid remain keen - but this could change quickly depending on other targets clubs have - for example, if by some chance MU were able to sign a Free Agent for the summer then interest in TW would go - equally if other clubs were not able to sign their targets, interest in TW might increase. Atletico signing Cavani would likely kill off their interest. Would Timo Werner be interested in a move to sit on the bench at Liverpool most of the time? If the answer is yes, or if Firmino is leaving then it makes sense. Many of the fans expect Klopp to add all of these players without anyone leaving and then completely change tactics and rotate them - it makes zero sense and the club has to meet Home Grown quotas as well. PSG are concerned about being shunned by Icardi and have looked at TW but have not declared any interest. Mr Mourinho is keen for Spurs to take him but there are concerns about the cost. The interest of Dortmund has gone with the signing of Haarland. Bayern Munich were never going to do business in January and played down all transfer talk but there is no doubt that Robert Lewandowski, who will be 32 at the start of next season, is going to need replacing in the next 18 months - and the plan had always been that it would be Timo Werner - they could yet look to do something or perhaps suggest he waits another year at RBL who have offered a new contract.

(b) Jadon Sancho (RW) The total cost of the full package (transfer fee, agent fee, signing on fee and FA payment) is simply outrageous - otherwise he would be moving to Chelsea. Some interested sides will be shocked in to stepping back because of the costs - so Inter can be removed as they are looking to take another youngster from England; Juventus have other players they will look to first; Manchester City see him as over priced. Manchester United are keen but the budget may not stretch and they have been talking (yesterday actually) to another side about taking a young player in the summer but they could return with an offer. Jadon Sancho is down the list and too expensive for Barcelona - he would want assurances of game time and he not first choice for them as they have a priority signing who will soak up a lot of the funds. Real Madrid have a different primary target who will cost a world record fee which will kill any chance of a move if it happens. PSG are not looking at Sancho and expect a similar, although older, player to be offered to them in part exchange in the summer. If Liverpool are looking to replace Salah I think there are cheaper options who would suit their needs available. So potentially an option for all of these sides but the total cost would need to change considerably for something to happen.}

It just took Eskom two hours and fourty five minutes to restore power *after* a load shed.

In that time I discovered you can't type a strikethrough in Tapatalk... And all I wanted to say was:

Carrow Road

One of the regular 'best of the rest' teams in La Liga.

Simeone loves structure, so they'll be very organised in defence and they'll be looking for opportunities to counter attack 'cos pressing like we do isn't really their game.

I think we got this, home and away.

Not upset about the result. Disrupted. Had no answer. But away in Europe we seem to keep on being flat. The trend continued tonight.

More concerning is how bad we’re in possession at times. Just giving the ball away.

Trent is out of sorts. Same as Saturday. His delivery was so bad from corners Milner took it when he came on. He is one of the main outlets so that’s a bit of an issue.

Fab working his way back into form. At times just off the pace. Virgil being unsettled. Don’t think I’ve ever seen that. Happened in that sequence that led to the goal which included that horrible clearance that led to the goal.

A negative result has been looming. Flat against Norwich as well. Interesting subs as well. Weird night for us.

Atletico played as expected. We didn’t have an answer, which this season is the weird bit

Chin up, Reds. Atletico are an immovable object once they go a goal up, so just make sure they don't go in front at Anfield.

We knew this, but it puts us at risk at home.
We had that same issue a handful of times against them, but still couldn't figure out how to counter Diegoball.

Also, nice to know you can still lose. Gives us a glimmer of hope that we may still be the only unbeaten team in the English top flight in over 100 years. *fingers crossed*
