We have decided to change the Teams page to be the Liverpool Match Posts page, so look for posts talking about the latest Liverpool match there.

But most of the posts still go to the Liverpool Banter page.

23 Mar 2018 12:29:27
Also more posts are being added to the Liverpool Other Posts page.

Hi Eds,

I've seen the posts that we have looked at lot of right backs for the summer, do you know if we have looked at Nordi Mukiele and if we hold a higher interest in him? He looks a talent, he's 6'1, strong defensively and plays CB as well. Also as you've said a centre back is not a priority in the summer who do you expect to be Virgil's partner start of next season or do you expect Klopp to keep rotating Matip and Lovren? I don't understand why it is not a priority, they both do not look at Virgil's level and so injury prone too. Personally I would buy someone older with a lot of experience because I expect Gomez to be starting CB in around 2 years as he still has a lot to learn and needs to cut the silly mistakes out. Pepe would have been perfect last season on a free but maybe Alderweireld, Benatia or Sokratis this summer?

Thanks Ed sorry for the long post! Just got going and couldn't stop haha.

{Ed001's Note - no idea about Mukiele sorry.

VVD's partner will be a case-by-case basis as Gomez will be given a few chances too.}

23 Mar 2018 10:31:58
I don’t think Gomez is as far off being a starting centre back for us as some people think. The only mistake I’ve really seen him make more than once are judging long diagonal balls over his head to a winger.
I might be wrong but I think that’s probably due to the fact that he’s always played centre back and isn’t used to the slightly different positioning needed to deal with this type of ball. Hopefully that means once he’s in the centre he’s not going to have that problem. And if he doesn’t have that problem I’m not really sure what issues he will have?
In which case if we spend big money on a ‘top’ centre back all we’re doing is stopping Gomez getting regular game time in his preferred position. I bet as soon as he gets the opportunity to partner VVD we won’t be worried about centre back for the next 5-10 years.

Thanks for the reply Ed001. Can I ask what top 4 positions you personally would look to buy for in the summer? And maybe list realistic but quality players you would go for?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - right back, midfield and left back. Need two in midfield in my opinion. I am not going to get into doing lists on here right now mate, bit busy sorry.}

23 Mar 2018 11:17:52
I hope you are right but the fact is Gomez hasn't played centre back this season maybe only a couple of times so I really don't think he will be able to prove himself in the position straight away - he need a to learn, make mistakes and learn from them. My point is I expect us to be challenging for the title and we need two quality centre backs especially the way we play. Matip and Lovren don't fit that, I hope Gomez learns a hell of a lot over the summer and shows himself to be that centre back that we need but there are issues with him as he is still young so I'm trying to be realistic. I rate him a lot I just think we need the quality now and allow Gomez to properly learn and gain the experience to be our next great centre back.

Agree0 1Disagree

23 Mar 2018 11:38:03
Xabi, completely appreciate what you’re saying. I suppose we have to hope that Klopp and the coaching staff make the right judgement as they’re in the best position to know what’s going to be best.
I’m happy to support them whatever they decide and hopefully it works out and we can challenge for the league next season!

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Mar 2018 11:37:59
Left back is interesting, Ed001. Do you not think Klopp should give Adam Lewis a go next season? Is he not ready yet?

Where do you stand on another player who can play across the front three in case something happens to one of the main three/ rotation/ etc.?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I would send him on loan for more game time. We have Ox, Wilson and Woodburn to cover the front 3.}

23 Mar 2018 11:49:35
Robbo, moreno, Gallacher, aroyyo and Adam Lewis will be pleased if we do buy another left back.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Moreno out I was thinking.}

23 Mar 2018 07:55:08
Is Max Meyer still of interest ed to us? He not been mentioned for a bit that's all.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Without a doubt he is.}

23 Mar 2018 09:50:41
I have mentioned it yesterday (though it didn't got posted) he has fallen out with Schalke and ignored their contract offer. His agent offered him to Barcelona but they don't have interest as they are buying that Arthur guy from Brazil.

The last offer from Schalke he had wasnt enough for him (5mil € per Year) so its more or less a money thing with him rather than playing time. No hints on where he is going or where he had talks as of now in the german media.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it was posted. Though it is incorrect as he has not fallen out with them as such, he is just not taking their contract offer and his agent cancelled a meeting at the last minute which annoyed the club. They would still be happy to have him stay though.}

23 Mar 2018 10:05:35
Oh now I'm getting my hopes up. Always had a good feeling Meyer could play that holding role really well for us. Would be more than happy to have him replace Can. Better passer in my opinion.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Mar 2018 10:34:18
I haven’t seen Meyer play, ever. Am I right in thinking he’s been playing the ‘number 6’ position that Hendo plays for us at the moment?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what "the number 6 position" is but he has been playing as a midfield player. He wears the number 7 shirt number if I recall correctly, so perhaps he plays in the "number 7 position".}

23 Mar 2018 08:46:18
Hi Eds?

Are we in the market for a CDM?, if so have we shown any interest in Rodri of Villarreal?
Have looked impressive every time i watched him play.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - Klopp has shown no interest in signing one.}

23 Mar 2018 00:36:12
Hi Eds!
Have Liverpool contacted Leicester at all at some point or not?
Thank you all!

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - I am going to assume you mean regarding Ndidi and not just have they generally contacted Leicester. Not as far as I am aware.}

22 Mar 2018 22:40:23
Is it only me, but I feel Danny Ings is getting his first start at the Everton game.

Believable5 3Unbelievable

22 Mar 2018 22:56:37
I wouldn't be surprised at that as Everton will be up for it, I wouldn't risk any of our main men at Goodison not in between the CL QF. Remember their fans were glad when City beat them in 13/ 14.

Agree5 1Disagree

22 Mar 2018 23:36:01
If he does start he'll score. We've all seen him the last 10 minutes of games and he's been so close, give him a full 90 minutes and he'll find the net no problem, I'd love to see him start against Everton.

Agree11 2Disagree

23 Mar 2018 04:44:49
Last time we played Everton and saved some key players, half the site wanted Klopp gone for not playing the best players available in a Derby match.

Agree11 0Disagree

23 Mar 2018 06:44:36
If we start a weakened team at Everton then that means we are putting our CL hopes before that of top 4. 3 points dropped against Everton at that stage of the season could prove to be costly. I'd love the CL trophy but going out in a CL quarter/ semi or losing finalist and finishing 5th would be a step backwards for us with not having CL football next season. Just my opinion though.

Agree6 1Disagree

23 Mar 2018 08:16:04
Well said Jayden and partly agree but I would say that playing Ings and possibly resting Bobby or one of our top 3 is what a squad is for, every game we have left could be decider of if we finish in the top 4 or progressing / being put out of CL and unlikely we will have used only 11 players between now and end of May.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Mar 2018 09:55:10
They are a dirty team when it comes to us. every time we play them they are always trying to take out our best players ( and usually succeed with at least one) at least Barkley is gone, he was one of their worst offenders.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Mar 2018 23:54:55
I've been reading a lot about the effect of Robert Lewandowski's potential transfer to Madrid. Apparently, they are very keen on Firmino as a replacement. I can't see it happening myself but maybe one to look out for during the Summer.

Believable3 25Unbelievable

22 Mar 2018 06:49:04
More likely they will sign Werner in my opinion.

Agree14 1Disagree

22 Mar 2018 07:23:21
If there is no buy out clause in his contract they simply can't afford him.

Agree6 1Disagree

22 Mar 2018 07:37:50
I agree with mk. Bayer have done it for years. Not just taking the best talent from within Germany but taking from teams and making them weaker as such.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Mar 2018 07:46:37
I think they’d go for Werner as well. Bobby is staying out, he loves it here.

Agree9 1Disagree

22 Mar 2018 08:02:06
Bayern isn't a selling Club. They haven't let anybody go that the didn't want to as they don't need the Money. If you look at the outs of the recent years youll see that bayern haven't sold any of their starting 11 players (Kroos was in and out the starting 11) so i don't think they will start doing it now.

Agree2 6Disagree

22 Mar 2018 09:39:36
We need that piano teeth smile in our team!

Agree5 5Disagree

22 Mar 2018 16:25:32
I won't be surprised if Lewandoski leaves. He's 29. Last chance for a massive contract and he may think he has a better chance of winning the Champions League with Ronaldo in his team.
However, I think Bayern will go for Werner and not Firmino. Werner is more of a traditional striker than Firmino and that fits more with Bayern's style.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2018 20:09:39
So far Salah hasn't stayed at a club for more than 2 seasons. Now hopefully he has found his spiritual home. However I think we need to win the league next year or forget it until we rebuild after he leaves.

Agree2 1Disagree

21 Mar 2018 23:54:49
Champions league might not be enough to keep Salah! He used to get it regularly at Roma and the club he intends to move is Real! We have to win that League.

Believable3 34Unbelievable

22 Mar 2018 08:37:50
Perssonally I don't even think that would retain a player if Real or Barcelona came calling, although I think joning Real now wouldn't be such a great move as they seem to have gone downhill a little.

Agree6 6Disagree

22 Mar 2018 11:21:01
Nah if we won the league it would definitely have a major affect on our ranking as a top club. Win the league in England where there are many teams that can win the league, coupled with the fact Klopp is the manager and you could play alongside Keita, Van Dijk, Firmino, Mane and Salah? Players would want to come and our top players would want to stay if we payed them for doing so well.

Agree5 1Disagree

22 Mar 2018 12:36:10
I wonder if Real would even have such a pulling power for Salah given he is Egyptian not South American. Personally don't see why they have such power anyway, they are nothing special nowadays and they play in a boring league.

Agree2 7Disagree

22 Mar 2018 13:12:17
Players leave. That's what they do. Some stay for a year or two. Some for a few years.

Neymar left Barca. Messi would leave them also, in a heartbeat, if they did not pay him a king's ransom. They even pay his dad a king's ransom.

Ronaldo threatens to leave Real every year.

Even Gerrard wanted to leave, to join Mourinho at Chelsea.

So yes, Salah will leave.

But not yet. Not yet.

Agree5 0Disagree

22 Mar 2018 13:37:38
They're nothing special but they've won the champions league 3 times since 2013 whilst we've won. oh yeah we haven't lol. But we are on our way up it seems and that's what matters.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Mar 2018 13:49:20
Salah is so well-received in Liverpool the hero worship alone will convince him to stay for a while. Seems like someone you want around your club and city. got to offer him good money to keep him but we seem to be doing well financially at the moment.

Agree0 5Disagree

22 Mar 2018 14:39:23
And with the team they have they won't be winning it again anytime soon.

Agree1 1Disagree

22 Mar 2018 15:02:33
Salah is a phenomenal player, but a big part to his success this year is down to the system we play and what Bobby Firmino does to create space. If he went to Madrid he would not be the focal point and would not do anywhere near as good as he is doing this season.

Agree4 2Disagree

22 Mar 2018 15:17:15
Not sure if I agree Amerigo. Generally speaking think if a player wants to go they will go irrespective of how much cash you can throw at them.

Agree3 3Disagree

22 Mar 2018 18:41:22
Unless it's a greed thing I can't see Salah or Fermino wanting to move for a few years (or unless klopp leaves), we play exactly to their strengths allowing them to stand out. If they went to Barcelona or Madrid they would play second fiddle to their superstars.

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Mar 2018 19:52:03
I hope so, Firmino is a magician and is sometimes outshone by the obvious brilliance Salah shows each week.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2018 22:12:15
Out of our front 3 i would say that Bobby would be the most likely to want to stay with us i get the feeling he loves playing for us and Klopp.

Mo Salad will eventually play for one of the big 2 in Spain i think and if our main Mane started to consistantly shine again i think he would be a goner too sadly.

As a club i think we need a sustained period of success before that will stop.

I hope im wrong though and their form continues, they stay and propel us to that period of success and become heros in the city for the red side anyway. Stay here for the rest of their lives get old and fat, Bobby runs for mayor and beats dodgey Joe in a landslide victory (who is still going somehow still phoning the bizzies over boom boom Barkley) whilst Mane and Mo host talk shows on lfc tv and remember their glory days on that historic Anfield grass.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2018 23:38:44
I don't think anything will ever stop the pulling power of the big 2 in Spain. They have always been able to prize away top talent from the biggest clubs. (Ronaldo/ Beckham/ Henry etc. ) There are other draws that make them more appealing other than just how good and successful they are. One huge one being the fact if you were offered the same job in London/ Manchester/ Liverpool or in Madrid/ Barcelona, which cities and country would you prefer.
The only thing we can do is get to the top and be a club players find it very hard to leave and a club other players don't turn down so that when the eventual bids for our superstar player of the time comes and they do leave, we are in a better position to buy top class players with the money.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Mar 2018 00:16:04
How can you say they won’t win it any time soon when they have the funds and pulling power to land any player? They will fix their problems in the summer. And I wouldn’t write them off in this years CL either.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Mar 2018 04:51:05
Gotta start paying similar wages to our top players as other team does. How a player like Firmino can have under 90k a week, when you see what other players earn these days is beyond ridicoulous.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - only ridiculous if the player expects more. If the player is happy, then it is irrelevant.}

21 Mar 2018 20:04:52
Does anyone think vardy would be a good signing? He has an eye for goal and has shown some real classy technique. That goal (against West brom? ) when it came over his shoulder and he volleyed it. I cannot stress how difficult that is to do, you need the technique and the timing but you need to do all this in full sprint, footballs move pretty quick when played high and straight.

He is also pretty quick and it seems only a matter of time until he joins a bigger club. I wouldn't put him before Firmino, no way but there are a lot of games and Bobby can't play them all.

Believable8 34Unbelievable

21 Mar 2018 20:16:27
The fact that whenever he scores (that goal included) he wheels away pointing at his own chest and screaming "ME, ME F*$"ing ME" suggests to me that he may not fit in with the team ethos that Jurgen is building.

Agree21 1Disagree

21 Mar 2018 20:19:32
Considering age profile (31)not sure he'd be a good investment for LFC or any other top 6 club.

Agree16 1Disagree

21 Mar 2018 20:48:01
I would prefer for our other options such as Solanke, Brewster or Ings to be given a shot, however if some or all of them leave in the summer and we need a proven back up, I think we could do far worse than Vardy as a stop gap. Only problem would be price for an aging player as has been mentioned above.

Agree4 7Disagree

21 Mar 2018 21:20:23
I think that Ings and Solanke are more than enough back up. Klopp seems to want to add goals in the midfield positions. Hence the Ox Followed by Keita. Hendon Milner and Gini all scored one each whilst ox scored 4 assisted 5.
Maybe he will move TAA into midfield next year?

Agree4 3Disagree

21 Mar 2018 23:02:19
I think vardy is a good player that has developed later in his career albeit too very good player, I would say yes too him but like other posters on here it’s the age that is stumbling block,

Agree1 5Disagree

{Ed0333's Note - haven’t you just contradicted yourself Wombat?

22 Mar 2018 07:25:48
No thank you. Stop gap not required
For those old enough to remember David Speedie did well scoring at other clubs and to be gair scored some big goals for us.
However- started a churn of older players who didn’t fit and were shipped out.

22 Mar 2018 07:39:26
No thanks. Wouldn't suit out style of football.

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Mar 2018 08:55:22
Doesnt suit our style at all, doesn't suit our team ethic at all, has a well documented history of downing tools every time he's not happy and frankly is a bit of a racist ***. Thanks but no thanks.

Agree0 1Disagree

22 Mar 2018 14:31:31
I don't think that Vardy would fit in, for a number of reasons, his age, his price, his partner, his attitude, is that enough .

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Mar 2018 19:33:30
What about Origi as a back up rather than Vardy?

Yeah good point Ed reading it back haha, and you can’t beat the wombats!

It has been said on here that there is interest in draxler but I also see links to cabellos of Madrid. Would it be a case of one or the other or is the cabellos interest not real?

Keep up the great work.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained over and over about interest in Ceballos - but they play in different positions.}

21 Mar 2018 15:19:34
Hey eds, any interest from Liverpool, or any team, in Richarlison from Watford? He's looked decent every time I've seen Watford play. Thanks guys, hope you're having a great day.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - none from Liverpool, most interest died out because he has been awful after a good start.}

21 Mar 2018 19:50:43
Agreed Ed1. I’ve seen Richarlison play live on a number of occasions and I assure you he’s massively over hyped. Ok he’s young but I’ve never seen a player miss so many clear cut open goal chances in all my 40+ years (he makes Ronnie Rosenthal look like Messi on occasions :) .
