    Interesting to see what he does in a probably pap team in the the big leagues though.

    Italian teams seem to keep well informed on the Dutch league.

    It's a move that he should have probably made two years ago, but nonetheless we've seen players need only one good season to move on to bigger and better things.

    Quite so.

    Another league where you can pick up talent easily. Bruma has gone to Wolfsburg for fairly cheap I believe.

    Bundesliga is a great place to hone your skills. Especially if you're target is to play in the EPL.

    Think we should have bagged him, personally.

    As we have discussed before though, there are many options.

    I really liked what I saw of him. Good dribbler, crisp passer, and above average vision as well. Would have been fairly inexpensive too. I don't think he would be an answer to our midfield as it's constructed, but I don't like passing on talent that's affordable.

    Oh I meant the cb from PSV.

    But I do like the Portuguese winger too. Can be a bit of a Markovic though.

    We don't want another Markovic. Shame for him really. We really did a number on his career.

    Having read a report in todays Daily Mail regarding Liverpools summer spending being over , and then it went on to say about the injury to Moreno and the need for an additional defender ??? I believe that at the end of last season Liverpool's main objective in the transfer window was to secure a real solid defence ??? having recruited a couple of guys ,who are now injured, together with Sakho and Lucas we seem to be in a very similar position as when the season finished ???
    I believe our summer spending has NOT rectified the situation of our dismal defence in an way shape or form . With less than 2 weeks to go to the start of the New season we are STILL dithering over whom we should buy ,??? Hector is still in the frame by all accounts ??? Has anyone got more info as to the possibility of who if anyone will arrive ???? The right back position and the Central Defence is still a major problem if we are to compete this year

    I know that the original goal for this thread has gone astray, but I hope you folks continue this season. It was interesting to read your thoughts, and I used it to direct my weekend football watching.

    Perhaps if you want focus, you could find us a leftback and some decent midfielders to sign in January when the club realise they forgot to solve our issues!

    So keeping with wide players. The player I'll look at is Pione Sisto who just joined Celta. Haven't really seen him play bar some highlights so it will nice to watch him more closely.

He is a beast in midfield, from what I have seen.

    I like the way he seems to be able to impose himself on opposing players.

    Did anyone see anything of him last season? He played 25 times for Lazio and scored 2 goals.
    Been watching him closely today against Gladbach.

    I'm not quite sure what he is in terms of position or even role, but he's very clearly simple a good football. Sharp, intelligent, good technique and he moves the ball well.

    Shame they played him up front against Bastia. He showed flashes of the magic, but it's a waste.

    I will always maintain that he should have become a superstar.

    On Zivkovic, Benfica are so sharp with their scouting. I hope he does well after barely playing last season

    Zivkovic though was pretty much on the radar and the Portugese clubs get lucky with these signings. They'll sell him for a massive profit in two seasons.

    Ben Arfa does things on occasion that make Messi look poor. His ability to change direction on a dime is the best I've probably ever seen.

    They seem to take the risk witht he right players.

    Ben Arfa's passing game is good too. It's just a shame that he took so long to find himself. Even now he plays a little bit for himself.

    On a sidenote, been watching Polomat for St Etienne today against Bordeaux, and imo he'd be a decent addition at lb.

    Only vid I can find on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHEC5X3CtmM

    Edit: And he gets an assist with a great cross.

    I don't mean this in a demeaning way, but he reminds me a bit of Allen, probably a bit less safe.

    Wish he had Allen's lovely beard.

    I just see some similarities in their style and movements.
