For every Aguero who we just missed out on…
For every balotelli , we wished we missed out on…
We do have the guys on the bullet dodged list.
Starting off with the recent guys in
B) Nicholas Pepe
And if its a bit harsh… Nabil Fekir .
Weve got the brendan bullets dodged like clint dempsey as well but who else are up there
Weren’t we linked with Gylfi Sigurdsson under Bodgers?
If so, then that is definitely a bullet dodged
Yep him and Loic Remy as well… Thinm Remy failed a medical.
We have got to mention him haven’t we? Anyone know who I mean? The record longest thread on TIA wasn’t it?..
Another of the huge differences between brendan and klopp is on how brendan tried to insist on getting players he coached / managed before. Worked out for him with Sturridge and Joe Allen to some extent. …
Whereas Klopp never really tried to pursue his ex players
Quaresma? or Simao? or was it Villa?
Other bullets dodged…
Depay, Phil Jones, Jamal Lewis, Alex Texeira, Bony, Ashley Williams, Draxler
Probably would disagree with Draxler only
Hodgson wanted Carlton Cole.
As if bringing a buggered Joe Cole on huge wages wasnt enough
I was in TIA only on the last couple of years of that or so. Better not be who i think it is
He didn’t really want Sturridge. Could have had him in the summer of 2012, and Rodgers turned down the deal. We got him the following January when it was obvious Borini wasn’t good enough. Bit cheaper, but still.
Borini was crap for us. Good attitude , decent footballer … Just terrible luck with injuries… And style of play
Could never figure out why brendan needed someone like him when his style of play didnt suit the tactics at all
And brendan went full brendan later and got benteke in
The ultimate dodged bullet is obviously Siggurdson.
There is an alternative reality where we win the Europa League in Klopp’s first season and bring in a load of wrong un’s who were only really into the CL football.
The other alternate reality if those sevilla cunts were called out for penalties etc by the spineless ref in the first half of that final itself was that klopp would have spent better
Saul, or whatever his name is
