Liverpool news: Philippe Coutinho to skip Champions League to force Barcelona transfer

http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/850110/Liverpool-news-Philippe-Coutinho-Champions-League-Barcelona-transfer-gossip-rumours

More likely just more nonsense. If true, that's £150K a week we save on his wages.

Tell your mouthpiece agent who priced you out of a move by telling Barca the price was €200M, that it's £125M, one installment by the end of January, with 25 add-ons of £1M each time Coutinho appears on a pitch for Barca for 60 seconds or more. We're quite capable of stupid add-ons and ridiculous terms too, and there's a 50% sell-on clause, no matter what he's sold for.

Maybe we could have a £10M buy back clause that comes into affect in Summer 2019, 31st May - 31st August.

Klopp explains Clyne's Champions League absence

http://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/first-team/274272-jurgen-klopp-explains-nathaniel-clyne-injury-situation

Liverpool are set to continue to be without the services of Nathaniel Clyne for a significant period of time due to a back injury, Jürgen Klopp has today confirmed.

Not good news, but maybe it helps if Gomez is getting more games, then if he is needed at centre back then he'll be more in tune and up to speed. Flip side, is that whilst he may be needed at centre half he may also be needed at right back, depending on if Klopp thinks it's time to take Trent out of the team for a break.

It's going be a long time until January, and that's if we can even pick up a centre half then. Klopp's going to have a lot of juggling to do where Trent and Gomez is concerned, with an eye on what is required at centre half also.

I wonder whether we'll see Lloyd Jones come in for a League Cup match or two, depending on the opposition, if we get past Leicester.

So Karius starts instead of Mignolet against Sevilla.

Klopp seems determined to prove he hasn't made a mistake signing Karius.

Let's hope his kicking is better than it was against Arsenal, otherwise we could find ourselves in trouble.

Klopp won't say whether Coutinho starts, but it will be interesting because:

Barcelona Ask Philippe Coutinho to Refuse to Face Sevilla in Champions League

Probably more BS from Don Balon, but I wouldn't put it past Barca. They think they're above everyone, and neither would I trust that pair of crooks Coutinho has as his agents.

What a surprise, on the eve of our first CL game, this appears:

Barcelona "ready to drop interest in Philippe Coutinho" and sign Jean Michael Seri from Nice in January

http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/barcelona-drop-interest-philippe-coutinho-11163451

Surely this can't be a reminder to Coutinho that if he plays for us in the CL this season, he can kiss goodbye to a January move, and possibly next Summer too, as they probably wouldn't need him if they get Seri.

Tes:
Oh dear. Klopp has no defence. Literally.

We're three centre halves short. Minimum.

We throw away goals like the bride's mother does with confetti.

Good to see chances created. Frustrating to see them missed.
