    Surely this isn't happening.. love to see those Liverpool wankers with Coutinho in our side though.

    If we are upgrading Özil with Coutinho could be great, can Ceballos work in a midfield 3 behind Coutinho?

    I think the issue is we can’t actually get a CB we want. If that is the case then I wouldn’t turn down Coutinho.

    This would be the best thing. A few of my five a side teammates support Pool, they may top themselves if this happened :lol::lol: They absolutely worshipped him

    samshere Why so serieuse?

    I don't care about anything, I want Coutinho in the team. Admired him from when he was running through teams for Liverpool. We get Coutinho and we have a genuine chance for the title, if not this year then the next.

    Cabellos is a cm not a 10 imo and would be good alongside Lucas and willock/douzie

    The same guys who got us Ceballos , Pepe etc are the same guys who maybe interested in Coutinho despite media coverage of a 45m transfer budget. I would listen to opinions like yours only if after signing Pepe they were sacked.

    We are fun of being too forward and making assertions with limited knowledge of the big picture or internal details. I prefer to give them the benefit of doubt and be optimistic even with equally limited information.

    We need to be spoilt for choice with top talent to be able to win the top honours when you look at the level of competition around us.

    Not all business is out here on the media and it is not rocket science to think there may be talks about a possible exit or the club is planning to ship out a few faces as we speak.

    I am not worried about the defence. With the way we are doing business now I am confident we would strengthen.

    Again after analysing last season without the emotional drivers we were let down by our inability to dominate games , score goals and control the game. It was not all about a weak defence.

    Ceballos often played DM for Betis so I don’t think there’ll be any problems fitting him in with Coutinho.

    I reckon that a front three of Coutinho - PEA/Laca - Pepe would be filth though.

    Lot of dribbling, pace and goals in there.

    Maybe we are thinking long term on this one.... maybe it's a load of cobswobble.

    In the unlikely event that this deal goes through you won’t be able to beg, steal or borrow a feckin ticket at the Emirates:confused:

    Exactly, our new guys finally look like they know what they're doing.
    They didn't hesitate to turn down the contract offer to ramsey because they felt it wasn't worth it.
    So if they want to get Coutinho, my guess is that we can afford it.

    Let's trust them. Who knows, maybe we're working to ship Mkhi/Özil/Iwobi out and it hasn't leaked to the press yet.

    Yeah cabellos from what I’ve read can defend and puts a shift in and is best as a cm. And alongside 2 others with the three you mentioned upfront I think we will be very good

    Shootinho of old would be madness. That guy carried Liverpool and was the best bottle opener on tight games as he just curled it in every single damn time.

    Just two questions about this:
    1. Is he getting the same confidence and happiness he showcased under Klopp with Emery ? Not even slating Emery there, Klopp is the best in the business and makes everyone look 2 levels better.

    2. Does he fit Emery's system as much as he did Klopp's or is it more like a mismatch as with Barca ?

    He definetely fits better than Özil I d say. Also I imagine he d be eager to get his career back on track after Barca fiasco.

    Peak Coutinho was really special, match winner in so many tight games and not such a big liability in defence
