Thats poor we should be bringing in a decent RB after the trippier deal. I respect that Poch has faith in Foyth but as No1 - no. Premier League is different to copa america. He will get ripped by the likes of mane etc at his current level.
What would you have said had we bought an unknown Wan-Bissaka last summer? One season later he went for £50m. We have to give the guy a chance, he’s a progressive player, takes risks and is technically good. He will make mistakes but that’s part of the learning curve. I’d take him at RB ahead of Aurier all day long.

Well.. it shouldn't really be that hard to see why? I worry about the players being sold because two of them are starters - Trippier and Rose - and according to most reliable sources we're not even going to replace one of them, instead opting for Aurier, KWP and Foyth at RB. Aurier is more or less a donkey. Red card, penalty or other brainfart waiting to happen. Can't even get a throw-in correctly ffs. KWPI I like but he's barely played a football game for 3 or so years - you cannot expect to be title contenders with that. Which leaves us with Foyth, who's a white version of Aurier, red card or penalty waiting to happen. I will probably have a prolapse by GW 3 with VAR and Foyth at RB.

On the opposite side we have Rose, who has been a consistent starter for a number of years and when firing is 3 times the player Davies is. The only player we've been linked to in that position is a 19-year old that seemingly doesn't even want to play in that position. And even if he did, he wouldn't be ready to be a title-contention LB IMO.

I'm as excited for Ndombele as you are, but he cannot revamp the team all by himself. He's not a Messi. I doubt Van Dijk would have had the same impact if Liverpool had sold two or three starters (without upgrading) like it seems we may be doing. And just to your last sentence about not selling players without getting players in - that's exactly what we are doing..?
Trippier was awful last season, Foyth is a better defender and a better player. Davies has played about 60 per cent of our games over the past few years, partly because of injury to Rose, mostly due to his better form. He creates as much as Rose does and he is a better more adaptable defender, unfortunately he is not demonstrative.

On the plus side he keeps his mouth shut and unlike Rose he wants to play for the club.

I don't think Coutinho would agree!

Foyth looks extremely awkward offensively, because he neither has the pace to beat his man and do a cut back or the crossing ability to whip it in quickly upon receiving the ball. He has no attacking ability and considering we already have Davies, who is also inept offensively, I would have nightmares watching the pair of them start for us as wing backs.

There'll be a new thread soon but you should know, after yesterday's bollocks I'm removing anyone who thinks this thread is for formations, media news, other teams media news etc etc
