The Blue 3/4 of Liverpool


Yup, no doubt about it - all top class signings too. No shadow of a doubt.

No problem with us getting an experienced loan signing at centre half if we're being quoted silly money for average players at this late stage. It's a long term project and vision we hopefully have now, let's leave the short term stuff in the past with Walsh, Allardyce and Koeman.

Doubt he'd come back. Had a bad experience with us before apparently.

He might even possibly be worse now than he was then.

Wouldn’t be a great signing for us I don’t think because of the age and fee.

I do like him though and he may well be about to have his best ever season.

I reckon it would take £50m before add ons.

25? Prime years coming up ahead of him. It would 100% be worth it, he's a match winner. Palace may also be tempted by Bolasie as part of the deal.

You're talking at least £60-70m for Zaha. Excellent player, but too expensive for me, even if you threw Bolasie in as a sweetener.

30 mil plus Bolasie sounds sweeter, and would tempt Palace.

They wouldn't even open the e-mail.

Nah, he's a good player.

Best available option out there at that price

Fantasy land. £60m and Bolasie might not even be enough.

It would tempt them enough to open talks, and we would of course end up paying them a lot more - but as a sweetener, it would at least tempt them... Bolasie did really well there, so it would be an option. However, I would imagine Zaha has his sights higher than us lowly lot. Probably someone like cash strapped Spurs, for 50+ mil straight cash ;)  I'm VERY happy with Richarlison and Walcott either wing and reckon for the money expected, I would sooner sure up CB/CM myself... priorities and all that.

Is he a match winner? 12 goals in 3 years..

Ok I actually thought he was 27 now for some reason. Still, he’s a pace machine - what age do they drop off?

50-70m feels like a Gylfi style transfer to me.

Removing my cautious hat, he’s exciting and he causes trouble. But he plays in the same position as Rich who imo is potentially better.

Plus he’s apparently turned us down already so fuck em.

I think the best thing about Zaha is that he's stepped up and basically taken the burden of carrying Palace on his shoulders. He's matured significantly since the early Palace/Man Utd days.
