How does it not make sense? Yes we spent £35m on Konate (which is great), but now it appears we need to generate funds from sales to spend anymore. Or whatever else we do have to spend is so tightly earmarked for use elsewhere that we have no wriggle room to take advantage of other deals.

If allís well with Matip and Gomez remaining fit and available for most of next season to fill in and back up Virgil and Konate when needed, then great no problem. But whoís genuinely confident of that?

Right, Iím boring myself now. Hopefully it all makes sense by the end of the window.

We've got 6 CB's now, and the good thing about last year is that Williams and Phillips have had some game time to gain experience; Virg, Matip, Gomez, Konate, Phillips, Williams and Davies. I can't see us going in the market this year to sign one, the focus would and should be to cover in the attacking third as Mane and Mo are off for a few weeks to AFCON, so we need cover there.

Because you are saying that Klopp would gladly have him, but money is too tight. Clearly the money was there to sign him, but we used it elsewhere. If you are saying we need two CB's but can't afford it, why not sign the cheap one Klopp would 'gladly have' and another one (or three) with the money saved?

As I said, doesn't make sense.

If we keep phillips and williams we can then send davies out on loan.

Im sure we will get a midfielder (or keep grujic, but unlikely) and an attacker.

Is that what I actually said? No, I said that not signing him doesn’t clearly mean we wouldn’t have taken him, especially at a cut price.

The money was there to sign Konate, and we did because he was the top choice.

Does that mean Klopp wouldn’t want to sign anyone else if it became possible?

Doesn’t make sense to you, that’s fine.

Is that a quadruple negative or just a triple?

It's neither. Though it would've been clearer if I'd said not signing him doesn't clearly mean that we didn't want him.

Kev was sacrificed for Robbo.

Clyne stepped aside for Trent.

And Gonzalez… Gonzalez… he… well… he had funky hair?

Yep, and especially due to the quality of the opposition.

Kabak reminded me of him a little bit, all over the place and seemingly having to try and dig himself out of self made errors.

If we'd wanted him we'd have signed him

It’s a sad indictment of the current state of this transfer window that this is all we’ve got to talk about currently

Feels like we need someone to make a big move to get things moving. Harry Kane has to be the big one, I wondered if winning the Euros might have dated his thirst for a trophy. But he lost AGAIN surely highlighting why he wants to leave Spurs.
