    Just saw the story on the homepage about him being ‘dissatisfied with his status since Jurgen Klopp’s arrival as manager’. What status would that be? The club’s first choice RB who,as the report states ‘made 52 appearances last season’? Why would he be unhappy about that? Why would we offer him to Barcelona? He was one of our best players last season. You have to laugh don’t you? Very strange story. Given it’s being reported in the Metro and the Daily Star,there’s a good chance that it’s BS. They’re hardly the most reliable of sources are they?

    Absolutely nonsense story.
    The lad is one of the first names on the team sheet for every game.
    Take a note of the author of the story.

    He was one of our consistent players last season, so why the hell would we offer him to Barcelona?!

    I have a problem with this.

    It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to make up a story about Clyne being unhappy with his status based on the arguments above. My problem with this is that those trashy papers usually get a symptom and then build the disease if you get me, Eg. Pick a player who had some kind of falling out with anyone at the club, or lost his place in the team then they look at a team who’s selling a player in that positiona nd build the story from there but. .

    I don’t see the first part of this typical formula in there and my point is that maybe it’s actually true. I’ll be clear, I am not saying it is but I thought I’d put my 2 cents forward.

    As for Clyne last season, I do think he’s very good but I also think Moreno made him look like a rock star.

    MrMak I just find the whole notion that we would offer him to another club purely because of a personal problem that he had with someone at the club a bit worrying. Surely it can’t have been because of his performances? If it’s true,and Barcelona had said “yes,we’ll take him”,that would have severely hurt our team,losing a player of Clyney’s quality,and we probably would have struggled to replace him. It could be true,but I’d say it was highly improbable

    He’ll be in the starting line up on the opening day at Arsenal,unless injured,and will be our first choice RB again next season. I personally think he’s the best English RB,and should have played over Kyle Walker at the Euros. Played 1 game,performed better than Walker did in the previous 2,then was dropped. Crazy

    I see the Clyne to Barcelona story is doing the rounds again. I’ll repeat what I said a few months ago: I can’t see any way in which the club would sanction a sale,unless Clyne actually says he’s unhappy and wants to leave,which in my opinion is not very likely,given he plays every game that he’s fit and available for. Why can’t Barcelona and Real Madrid leave our players alone?

    I’d be seriously worried if the club sanctioned a sale of Clyne

    Can’t say that I’m Clyne’s biggest fan. He gets up and down well but from the attacking point of view his end product leaves a lot to be desired. He seldom puts in a telling cross and his final ball is often poor. Defensively, he regularly seems drawn to the centre back (presumably / possibly under instruction) leaving acres of space down the left. It’s just as well that there aren’t that many naturally gifted wide left players out there. He’s also a little on the short side – it’s not unusual to see the opposition striker position himself close to Clyne to take advantage of this, particularly when he has drifted in towards the centre back. I wouldn’t be that sad to see him go but doubt any sale would be sanctioned unless a replacement was in the pipeline (or already at the club: Trent A-A or possibly even Joe Gomez?).

    Have seen stories before that he is not overly happy at Liverpool, as far as status goes it is probably more to do with international status rather than club.

    I’ve seen that they’ve been linked with Ivanovic at Chelsea as well. Let’s be honest,they can’t sign Iva,Clyne and Johnson can they? In my opinion,it’s yet another attempt to destabilise the good feeling around the club at the moment by the rags. It’s happened before,and it’ll probably happen again in future

    I can´t stand these rumors, they are just made up to sell papers, even former players endorse it. Carra today stating that Coutinho is now ready for Real or Barca, what an idiot the man is.
    Is he really a Liverpool supporter, cause this kind of statement is only to sell papers and put his name in the papers. If he was thinking about the club he would state that Coutinho is now ready to lead a title challenge for us but no…
    Fucking idiot!

    Maybe his article started tha way, then his editor was like nahhh link it into transfer rumours…? Sadly people like Carra do have alterior motives these days and will need to take certain direction with their articles or punditry

    I wouldn’t worry about any of it there’s nothing to it without Barca make a bid which would almost certainly unsettle Clyne but even then it would be Liverpool’s call.

    I might be wrong but isnt Clyne No 1 for appearances made over the last 2-3 years? Clyne getting some stick for some poor performances but to be honest hes been one of our best players for a long time. If anything he should be praised, hes been an ever present for a long time. Football is not like 30 years ago where you could have a smoke at half time, footballers have to be really fit and Clyne has kept himself in peak condition, for that I respect him. If anything TAA emergence could actually help the team. Clyne will get the odd break that he obviously needs whenever his form dips a little due to being overplayed.

    Been hearing Klopp may be looking to replace Clyne. Leftbacks a priority but if business can be done then they may try to bring in a right back too.
    Ricardo Pereira being looked at.

    I guess he wants someone with better crossing/passing. Unless he has someone good in mind, maybe be careful what is wished for, Clyne is a solid defender.
