    I keep seeing articles with titles like "Ex-someplace star sounds warning about Liverpool *something*". I was considering writing a browser plugin that freely translates the titles of clickbait headlines like this.

    "Has-been expresses opinion about something he's never done successfully"
    ‘How many mistakes are you allowed?’ Klopp asked the fourth official. ‘Because if it’s 15, you’ve got one left.’

    Silly season time, isn’t it?

    Oh, and we’re in for Coutinho, Fekir and Neymar apparently.

    So, £330 m in backups then?

    Rumors out of Italy have made it to the Liverpool Echo.

    Deep breath...
    Barca still owe £88m for Coutinho.
    They no longer want him.
    He wants a return to England, but not to a Liverpool rival.
    Which kinda means Liverpool.
    So he has green-lighted a 2 year loan move back to Liverpool.
    Liverpool then have the option to buy him for, how much?
    Yep! £88m...
    Exhale.

    Do loan games count for add-ons? If we win the CL with Coutinho in the squad do we get those add-ons? ;-)

    Ha!

    Did a little digging looking for the clauses in Coutinho's transfer.

    The following seem generally agreed:
    • £18 million for Coutinho’s first 100 matches 

    He's made 55

    • £4.5m at each 25-match interval to total that £18m
    Not happening now

    • £4.5m due if Barca qualify for 2018/19 Champions League
    Booked

    • Another £4.5m if they qualify for the 19/20 Champions League
    Booked

    • A further £4.5m for winning the Champions League in 18/19
    Looks like we did ourselves out of £4.5m by the audacity of 4-0

    • And £4.5m again if they win it in 19/20
    This could be really interesting. Is this clause about Barca or Coutinho? If Coutinho and we win next season's CL, we vacuum up all that CL money AND Barca have to pay us £4.5m!

    New signing: Andy Lonergan

    In the Klopp tradition of multi-faceted goalkeepers, Shamal George - GK/ST and Dan Atherton - GK/ST comes our latest signing, Andy Lonergan - GK/BC/PB. Goalkeeper/Bullpen Catcher/Practice Body.

    Next position we're looking to fill: VLCBC - Vip Live Cook Box Chef

    Acquaintance of mine who has written for 2-3 UK dailies on football, says that the Coutinho loan deal has been green-lighted (lit?) by LFC. It's negotiation time to see if they can find an agreement between the clubs and player.

    Definitely NOT a done deal, but the 3 parties are talking. Supposedly. Apparently. Perhaps. Maybe.

    BTW, if the above does come to pass, Liverpool win the transfer window for the second straight summer, right?
