Belliingham signs, Trent announces England retirement the next day.
WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE!

Normally a player can look great on tubes, but one of the things that's encouraging for me is just the amount of youtube videos on him

I agree with that. In this age of carefully managed social media, Bellingham has allowed himself lots of exposure to, and links with, Liverpool players. If he isn’t coming to Liverpool, it is careless on his part.

I think he is coming.

He didn't do that on purpose though did he? The staff didn't get together and say hey lets have a terrible start to the season it'll be perfect timing just after Pep has released his book.

Oh ok, so some books are allowed and others aren't. I got it.

Not his fault, but it does explain some of the negative responses to him since it becomes an easy target, even though it shouldn't.

There's a clear difference between a ghost-written autobiography puff piece that says nothing and a book that is more akin to Amazon's "all or nothing" series and you are clearly being disingenuous to suggest otherwise.

Has he been seen with players from other teams though? We obviously only care when he's seen with ours.

Brighton played a blinder, was out of contract next summer and got him to sign a new deal last month.

Going to be  £40 million plus.

He wasn't really spoken about or sought after until this season? So no guarantee he was going to get a decent move. Plus I imagine he got a nice wage increase.

He only started 22 games last season - came on as a sub in 13 and was an unused sub in 3. So yeah, hardly someone who would have had a bunch of bigger clubs sniffing around.

This Bellingham story quite reminds of the VVD one honestly. Hopefully with a similar outcome!

Our individual success stories (like Van Dijk, Salah, Alisson, Mane) will certainly play a role in Bellingham's decision. Players obviously flourish under Klopp, get a lot of exposure due to the size of our club, and easily enter the talk of the top individual rewards like the Ballon d'Or.

I know people will once again laugh at it, but being successful at LFC brings much more individual commercial deals than being successful at Man City or Newcastle. That is one of the reasons why Real Madrid are so attractive to many players. They give the most exposure.

Personally, I think that LFC and Real Madrid are the only two realistic destinations for Bellingham. We hold certain advantages over them in Bellingham's case (his nationality, Jurgen), and the presence of Tchouameni, Valverde and Camavinga on their team could actually work in our favor ...

Great point. I wonder if on the Man City message boards (if they have one) there are similar photos. I'm sure all players have been posting loads of photos with each other.
I haven't really seen Bellingham play much to be honest. The money seems mental for someone so unproven. If its fair to call him that. A lot seem to say that Declan Rice is way overhyped because he's English and nowhere near as good as people say or worth the money West Ham would be asking. Don't hear the same for Bellingham. Is he a much better player than Rice is?

I think with Bellingham you need to consider his age. He's still seven months away from turning 20 but look at the experience he's amassed already. He's in his third season as a starter with Borussia Dortmund, and before that he had a season as a starter in the Championship. That's a crazy amount of experience for someone so young, and then you consider the fact that he's starring (and excelling) in the Champions League and now is doing the same at the World Cup for a good side. It's not like he's just playing and going relatively unnoticed either, from what I've seen he's often the best player in his side and he's essentially become the leader (or one of them) in the Dortmund team. And again, all while still being a teenager!

It's phenom-level stuff. And he seems to have a proper head on his shoulders, incredibly driven, so you'd expect him to get better and better. No guarantee of course, but that's why his fee is going to be so big. You're not only signing someone who is already a top-class midfielder, you're anticipating that he's going to be one of the best of his generation.

Plus he's got a good injury record, and physically looks more than capable of playing under Klopp.  He's over 6ft tall and very nimble with it.

Fair points. I just find it difficult sometimes to gauge how good someone is because of the tendency by the media to hype them up way beyond where they should be. The being a leader thing is a big thing though. I did hear or read that in some fiery German games he was in the thick of it, I love that and I think every team needs that, especially in the middle or you'll get eaten up. Kloppo seems mightily impressed by him. That'll do for me if so.
Also, I hope we all apply the Sancho caveat here. Harbour a hope of getting him for silly money picture him in our team and watch the Dortmund highlights, then if he goes to a rival team he's pish, another over rated English player and a money grabbing bastard

I do wish people wouldn't throw names in here after watching an international tournament. You should have all learnt your lessons after drooling over half of the Danish team from the last Euros.

Dude, a couple of these players turn out for Brighton Hove Albion, another for Ajax (who we played twice this season, and a third plays for Benfica, who it feels like we've played as well (have we?).

The only World Cup one is Gapko but I reckon he's headed for Man United.

Very kind of you to say that. There's lots of really knowledgeable well-informed posters on here, and I don't include myself in that. I've learned loads from so many people on this site and probably like others get a bit defensive when a handful of people start treating the place like an extension of Twitter.

Where else could you learn about what telly to buy, what a podge spanner is, find out about different music and films, get links to footy clips (thanks Jason) as well as footy comment, current affairs, mental health, building and gardening tips and even get a chance to rant about middle lane drivers.

Liverpool want an AC Milan midfielder, AC Milan want two of Liverpool’s midfielders.

Our ones are not so tough to decide; they were linked with Naby Keita last summer and that’s still the case now, with the Rossoneri hoping they can land him on a free.

But they also want Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for free, say Italian outlet Calciomercato.

Also in Italy, and somewhat more reputably, Corriere dello Sport say Jurgen Klopp is very keen to sign Ismael Bennacer, with the suggestion we’ve already offered a proposal.

He has 18 months left and the Reds are among the teams keen – but the report also says we place Jude Bellingham higher.


There was also some talk of want £12 million for Naby and £8 million for Ox in January, but I doubt teams would pay for them then when they can get them for free in a few months ?

I think the issue would be the players rather than the clubs, since players who leave on a free tend to negotiate big signing on and wage bonuses with their next club. Either way it seems unlikely.

Its amazing to see all the talk about Bellingham and no alternatives whatsoever. Guys brilliant and really done well in Germany. But we saw that with Naby Kieta and we saw that with Jadon Sancho and some of us were desperate for us to shell out £80million for him. Chelsea paid I think £90million for Kai Havertz an hes not all that. Pulisic another one. And then the one we all moaned about losing Timo Werner and look what happened there.

Bundesliga is great but I don’t think it’s a true reflection of how good a player will be in the premier league which is a completely different ball game. Look at Gnabry ripping it up for Bayern after not getting games at Arsenal. Really don’t think we gonna  take a “risk” and pay £100million plus for Bellingham. I would be surprised. Love it if we do and he succeeds but doubt we gonna do so sadly.

I remember a few years back how some of us wanted us to get Delle Alli at all costs. He fell off a cliff and then Everton paid something like £40million and he fell even further and now at Beşiktaş. You just don’t know. But I would like to think at Liverpool our guys do all the necessary research before getting these guys in so it lowers such a “risk”. If we had the moneymen its no big deal, like Utd can spend and spend and they flop theres no hoo haa.
