Well your definition of looking good is different to mine mate ... although I will meet you half way in the sense that he looks gangly and bambi on ice but so did Lafferty against better defences, but against the shite in Scotland I thought he did well even if others didn't so you never know .. I think what Leeds Bear was talking about earlier was a concession I made, I think I said on reflection he might be OK as a squad option and still could be ... but I think we need much higher quality ... we shouldn't under-estimate what we actually need and I include Gerrard in that

 Thought he looked good and very dangerous with the ball running at the PSG defence but again just a YouTube vid and they can be very deceiving I.e Ortiz,Pena,capucho etc 

Complete agree we need much higher quality player to challenge scum I’d say 3/4 players tbh.

i think Sadiq will be a good impact player for us to bring on with his pace and unpredictability.

has to be a upgrade on Miller,Herrera,Cummings etc

I thought you said earlier in the thread you’d take him on loan.

I wouldn’t be gutted if we didn’t get him but he looks like one of those players who could provide something different off the bench, but not much else! 

I clarified up a couple of posts meant as a squad option if not over-whelmed about it ... was really posting about people saying he looks good in that video - he doesn't IMO.

They won't loan him out if he isn't a first pick to the team he goes to. Would be pointless otherwise.

we won't bring him in and keep Morelos

We've seen loans before were guys weren't Automatic 1st pick. Recent example Cummings. 

If Gerrard goes with 2 up front we need at least 4 strikers. In that system both solanke and Sadiq would be getting a lot of game time. Morelos could also he kept barring silly money offer. Wonder if windass is being planned for use as a striker as well.

Think he means the fact that solanke is on the verge of the first team at Liverpool then if there was a chance of loaning him out then he's got to be starting otherwise they'll be aswell keeping him, Cummings just had no place at forest

On that note, is anything further known about Herrera's situation? Or Forrester or Cardoso for that matter? If I remember correctly they didn't travel as they were in discussions with other clubs

I think if he does come Liverpool would expect him to get a lot of game time but that doesn't mean he's automatic 1st pick. Form, injuries etc come into it.

I do think but solanke would bang them in for us up here and would likely play his way into automatic pick.

Haven't seen anything recent on Forrester or Cardoso.

Weren't they all meant to have stayed behind because they were discussing moves to other clubs? Possibly I've dreamed this

It really all depends what we're looking for in a striker.  This Sadiq looks like someone capable of leading a front line on his own.  In some of these clips he's picking the ball up from deep and carrying it 30-40 yards in to the box.  He's holding players off, playing with his back to goal, bringing others in to it, etc.  He looks like a modern day CF.  If he's competition for Morelos up front then I can see him doing a job.  I'd obviously prefer Solanke but I doubt that's realistic.

M8 it's a two and half minute clip......you seriously can't be telling us what kind of player he is based on that clip?

I said "looks like" and it was my opinion based on what limited footage I've seen.  There's many more willing to write the guy off based on the same YouTube footage.  If your position is that nobody knows anything then I hope you're taking the time to quote every single person in this thread who has offered up an opinion and repeating to them the same "you seriously can't be telling us what kind of player he is based on that clip?" line.  

Also, he does look like a CF rather than a penalty box striker.  You're welcome to disagree.

Imo it's the kind of player we need . A foil for Alfredo.  Height and strength in the box .. personally I'd rather solanke as he's more a Hately/ cousin type who will batter through defences

I think we’ll get Solanke near the end of the window

Reports said klopp wouldn't make a decision until the end of the window on Solanke going on loan. This is August 9th now down in England after a vote. 

A lot depends on Liverpool transfer business. If they add another foward then I think we might get him.

Forrester was in the West end on Thursday eating lunch at Tribeca himself. 

Cba giving the wee waster the satisfaction of someone knowing him. Sooner he’s gone the better.
