Any one else hear that TAA is out for at least 4 weeks?

I have not heard that but that is worrying news. Might have to resort to Fabinho or Milner filling in there.

Never understood the Clyne situation. End of season yes season short sighted. Gomez and TAA out. Has to play Milner. can't play Camacho against Zaha.

Hopefully Matip is fit enough because he'll need to play CB with Milner or Fabinho RB!

Goodness me these injuries!

Agree18 1Disagree

play fabinho CB and milner RB. think we well be just fine.

Agree17 2Disagree

15 Jan 2019 13:21:36
If we play Fabinho CB and Milner RB then we are left with only Hendo and Kieta in midfield as Gini is also injured.

Agree2 12Disagree

15 Jan 2019 13:24:05
Don't forget that Hoever (who came on at CB against Wolves), his natural position is at RB. Maybe he'll be on the bench as cover, but he certainly looked more than competent when he played.

Robertson VanDijk Fabinho Milner.

Matip was on the bench V Brighton so he could well be back in the starting 11 for the Palace match.

Agree14 0Disagree

15 Jan 2019 14:28:52
Absolutely no need for panic chaps. We can still put out a strong defence/ midfield against Crystal Palace :


Milner Matip VVD Robbo

Fab Hendo

Shaq Bobby Sadio


Agree24 1Disagree

15 Jan 2019 14:38:31
Hoever's natural position is not RB, he is a CB.

He has been playing RB above his age group much like Joe Gomez did for a long time.

Also, I don't think he should be thrown in any time soon. He is doing very well progressing where he is. The Wolves game should've been a nice cameo for him for 20 minutes at the end, instead he was thrown into the cauldron in a disjointed team.

I would rather play Fabinho and Milner out of position rather than put a 16yr old into the firing line. What if he makes a mistake that costs us a game, or even worse costs us the title? He might never recovery as the "fans" would destroy him.

I think there's a time and a place for young players to be bedded in. As we reach the business end of the season when we're closer to the league title than we have been in years. that's not the right time.

By all means have him on the bench and give him minutes, but don't pin our hopes on him.

Agree10 5Disagree

15 Jan 2019 14:56:19
We should absolutely not be relying on a 16yr old in critical PL matches. Milner is a better RB than Clyne so happy to see him start there any day and still have Hendo, Gini, Keita and Shaqiri for midfield. and Fabinho too when Matip and Gomez back.

It’s gutting to see him injured but not a crisis, we have quite a few players who can cover there.

I agree with you Reusch. If you're good enough, you're old enough.

Jack Robinson if I remember correctly made his debut against Arsenal at 17 and did very well. Milner, Rooney, Lennon and Jeffers all got thrown in at the deep end at 16. Owen, Mcmanaman and Fowler got a chance at a young age too. Gomez and Trent are now first team regulars too after being given a chance and trusted.

Epic-How many centre backs have played at 16?

15 Jan 2019 18:31:44
Cobra666 - The only one I can think of is West Ham's Reece Oxford. Didn't he get man of the match on his debut against Arsenal?

I am however referring to the right back slot, but Hoever showed perfectly capable in the centre.

15 Jan 2019 18:34:39
Also, Hoever turns 17 on Friday. Happy Birthday to him :)

Agree3 0Disagree

15 Jan 2019 20:04:40
Milner will cover RB, no problem, Matip will play, then I think we have a 2 week break, so most players out should be back by then,
Gomez will be like a new player for us,
I think by the end of the season, people will think that VVD and Gomez are probably the best centre half partnership in the world .

Agree5 0Disagree

15 Jan 2019 21:24:44
Epic every player you mentioned there is a forward or winger where you can afford to make more mistakes. At the back you simply can’t. If we had a 16 year old at the back Palace would target him with everything they’ve got and it could set him back immeasurably.
Why not just player Milner there who we know we can trust until Gomez and TAA are back. Simples.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Jan 2019 00:09:30
Agree Bobby.

Comments like ‘if you’re good enough, you’re old enough’ are fine, but it’s also about when you choose to introduce inexperienced youth players and against whom.

In a close title race, in a defensive position (where a mistake costs a goal, not lost possession) and against a player like Zaha would not make any sense to me when you have Milner and Fabinho as established international pros more than capable of playing in that position.

Hoever will get him time, but I don’t see Klopp taking a risk like that at this stage.

Agree5 0Disagree

16 Jan 2019 00:52:38
Now look, TAA is injured. should have kept martin kelly.

A 16 year old cannot have a natural position, he’s 16!

16 Jan 2019 09:27:17
BB I think this game will be too soon for Hoever but a lot of great defenders have made their debut at 17.

Varane - 17
Mendy - 16
Marquinhos - 17
Gimenez - 17
Laporte - 17
Sule - 17
De ligt - 17

Even in the prem you have

Ferdinand - 17
Bellerin -18
Barry - 17 (maybe played midfield)

At some point you have to give the kids a chance otherwise what's the point in the academy.

Agree3 0Disagree

16 Jan 2019 16:22:50
Bobby, not really. Robinson, Trent and Gomez aren't strikers or wingers.

I also replied to Cobra about any other Premier League defender starting at the age of 16, and which I could only think of Reece Oxford at West Ham making his debut in their season opener against Arsenal. I know his chances have been limited since then, but a MotM awarded in that game does suggest that he did a bit more than OK.

The list above that Happy Red Pants put forward says a lot. Some of those defenders are some of the best in Europe and they started young. Wouldn't you want Hoever to be mentioned in the same breath as some of those players?

And for the record, I'm not saying that he should be picked ahead of Fabinho or Milner. I'm merely saying that he's an "option" and the idea of such shouldn't be discarded because he's only just turning 17.

Sorry there hasn't been any loan updates in a while I have only just got over my Christmas and New year antics! Im not the man I use to be.

Living in Brighton I was lucky enough to see the game at the weekend. Brighton were boring with 11 men behind the ball most the game. As the home team it was disappointing to see them display zero adventure for most of the match.
I had a great view of the game and it has given me a new appreciation for what Henderson does, particularly in the first half.
Our attack was slow in the first half and their was very little movement as we struggled to get through an organised defence.
Henderson was always looking to get on the ball and make things happen but there were no options in-front of him. I thought I would point this out as I saw a lot of criticism of him after the game for which I could not understand. But TV never gives you the full picture.

Anyways enough of my rambling, heres the loan update

It was a relatively low key weekend for the young Reds out on Loan with several European Leagues not yet returning to action from their Winter breaks.

Harry Wilson missed Derby's disappointing 2-0 defeat to Leeds due to injury and is likely to miss their FA Cup replay with Southampton this week as-well.

Talking of Southampton Danny Ings missed the weekends win over Leicester again due to injury but new Boss Hasenhuttl is hopeful Ings will be back for the FA Cup tie.

Newly loaned Nathaniel Clyne has already made more starts for Bournemouth in 2 weeks then he had for the reds this entire season.

At the weekend the cherries faced Everton in what resulted as a 2-0 defeat, despite the result Clyne gave a solid performance and Cherries fans are happy with the early showings from their new Right Back.

Herbie Kane was in action at the weekend for Doncaster Rovers but it is a match they would like to forget. Kane was at the centre of a dominant display that saw the Rovers 2-0 with just 14 minutes to play.

However despite their domination they were left with nothing as they left the pitch. A complete collapse in the final 10 minutes saw Wycombe score 3 times including an injury time winner that left Rovers and Herbie Kane shell shocked at the full time whistle.

Having left Rangers during the Winter break Ovie Ejaria has now found himself on loan in the Championship at Reading.

Playing on the left of an attacking 3 Ejaria played for 75 minutes in a lively performance as Reading beat Nottingham Forest 2-0.

Young Reds stopper Kamil Grabara who impressed in pre season has joined AGF Aahus on loan for the second half of the season as he goes in search of regular game time.

Taiwo Awoniyi has left KAA Gent after an unsuccessful stint on loan and returned to Royal Excel Mouscron where he was on loan last season. Hopefully the move will bring a change in fortunes for the young striker who was a big hit for R. E. M last year.

Ben Woodburn has returned to Liverpool early after an unsuccessful stint with Championship club Sheffield United.

Shamal George's loan at Tranmere has finished with the young Red stopper playing 3 times for the League 2 team.

Corey Whelan has also returned to the club after a successful stint with Crewe where the young full back played 18 matches.

Connor Randall has returned to the club after his loan was cut short due to an injury picked up in September.

And that's your lot.

Rumours regarding Coady coming back.
I think he is good but found his level for a top 10 team. Fighting for LE at best. Any truth in the rumours?

Believable5 10Unbelievable

14 Jan 2019 22:06:06
I would take Coady back but only if Matip moves on. It would only marginally (If at all) improve our strength in depth, but it would help with the home grown quota and whilst I don't think he is good enough to start, he is a leader in the dressing room. He has arguably only ever looked good in a back 3, but I think playing for Liverpool he'd raise his game to a level above what he'd play at for any other club.

It wouldn't be what I'd advise him if I was his agent though. He is captain at probably the 7th or 8th best team in the league and should stay where he is.

Agree11 7Disagree

14 Jan 2019 22:40:30
No truth what so ever Martolfc. Absolutely zip!

Agree4 1Disagree

14 Jan 2019 23:56:00
We won't be signing any CBs for the foreseeable future. Expect Matip will sign an extension and Lovren still has 3 years remaining on his contract. And everyone knows that VVD and Gomez will be our long term CB partnership so pointlessly adding squad players when we have so many options already within the club is gross mismanagement of club funds.

Coady left to get games and give him his dues he's turned into a great player for wolves. He's hardly going to come back to us and not be guaranteed to play. Plus we would have to pay stupid money for their captain in this window knowing we are light at CB.

Morning Ed002.

Was thinking, if Salah and his representatives are / have been attempting to engineer a move away, are the owners and those running the club not aware of this? Surely they must be, I'd be astonished if they weren't

If so, are they making provisions to replace him in the Summer? One can say the summer is a long way off but replacing someone like Salah will require some work. As we all know if a player wants to leave and there is an opportunity they will.


Believable4 5Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Salah doing anything specific, and his representative can speak to whomever they wish - it is no different from another players agent talking with Liverpool, Arsenal or anything else. I am not aware of any club looking to buy Salah in the summer at this time - it was seemingly a begging activity which would see Salah's future opportunities removed if Real Madrid were to buy the forwards they are looking at. Right now, I would not worry too much.}

Hey Dorgie, how did you manage to get 3 thumbs down for saying Thank You!

Gosh there are some lemons on here.

Agree4 2Disagree

14 Jan 2019 19:31:31
If we analyse the way a thank you is delivered, we can start to ascertain why people may deliver a 'thumbs down'.

In years gone by, it was accepted that a nod, a tip of ones bowler hat or, as people expressed themselves more liberally, even a wink would be enough to acknowledge appreciation.

As times passed, expressing gratitude, evolved into a verbal exchange using the words 'thank you', which became shortened to 'thanks' or 'cheers'.

However, in this digital age, things developed further, with people going all out in expressing their appreciation. Phrases like 'Totes amazing', or wholly over the top comments meant that simply 'thanks' was of a bygone age.

So there we have it, I suspect the thumbs down was a result of vegan millenials passing by on their digital device and not recognising this more traditional way of expressing gratitude.

If you have read this far, then you a totes amazing and a far more superior being than me. I hereby tip my hat to you. Thanks.

That should have covered everything and everyone there.

Reports saying Newcastle still attempting to sign Milan's Diego Laxalt, with Milan wanting €12 million for him.

Not sure if it's true but we were interested at one point for him, would we not look to hijack this?

Versatile players too.

Also was there any genuine interest from us in Omur? Never seen him play so wouldn't know how good he is. Reports were reporting fee in region of £14 and £18 million.

If true viable fees for two players we are reportedly interested in.

Is there also any movement on Origi moving? Seems there's interest from both Fulham and Wolves.

I really don't think we should go for Laxalt.
To me he is an average winger who can play at LB/ LWB. He isn't great at either IMO.
I know he'd only be cover in both positions but I'd rather have a quality youngster than versatility.

14 Jan 2019 08:17:42
I've said before that TAA should stick with being our right back for the next 10 years. We have loads of midfield options so probably don't need any more bodies in there and I haven't seen many right backs better than TAA in the past couple of years that we could reasonably buy.

Greetings lads, love your work like always.

Question regarding James Tarkowski;

Whats the latest on this English lad, certain threads have been coming through past few days saying Liverpool have enquired about his availability this window.

Macca mentioned interest 6months with him.
Any word?
Or if you gents know if we could go in for him next window perhaps?
I sense Matip could leave for more game time next window, allowing a CB to come in.

Cheers gents.

Lovren and Matip would both get into Arsenal, or Man Utd's team.

I'd say Lovren gets into Chelsea's team as well ahead of Luiz and at least in the Man City and Spurs squads ahead of Otamemdi, Stones, Foyth or Sanchez.

Are people just going to pretend he's not the best defender in a Croatia side that got to a World Cup final and part of the back 4 which got us to a Champions League final? He's the best 3rd choice centre back in the league in my opinion and he'd start in at least 16 of the 20 teams in the division.

Maybe when fit but that's the point MK.

13 Jan 2019 11:52:51
What is all this "when fit" nonsense about? How often are Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Kompany, Otamendi etc getting injured? All the time. We're just unlucky that we lost 3 out 4 senior centre backs over a miniscule 2 game period.

It hardly cost us though. Hoever and Fabinho were certainly not the reason we lost in the FA cup, and we breezed past Brighton. Got out of 1st gear? I think Klopp just got out and pushed without turning the engine on.

Matip will be back for Crystal Palace and Gomez will be back the week after. This is all very dramatic. Anybody would think our team had been decimated by Spanish Flu.

Agree25 4Disagree

13 Jan 2019 12:15:05
I think we need to upgrade our 3rd choice CB. I don't rate Lovren or Matip highly at all, yes they've stepped in well this season but would you want them in the team for an extended period of time say if VVD was injured or against the top oppostion? Even disregarding that their injury records are too poor to be a reliable 3rd choice. We've took a risk this season going in with just these 4 but I understand we had to prioritise other areas first. But now I believe Klopp will sort it out this summer I think Ed001 mentioned Matip could leave and Ed002 has said we've been scouting Ruben Dias. I also think the club don't see Phillips/ Masterson making it, indicated by us having looked at youngsters like Francisco Ferreira and Per Schuurs. VVD, Gomez, NEW CB, Lovren and a high potential youngster for 5th choice would be ideal for next season.

I don’t get why anyone would think Tarkowski would be remotely good enough, he’s been found wanting this season, he’s had one good season in his career ever, he’s a mid table championship defender at best. Plus he’s a dyed in the wool Man United supporter and I don’t want one of those at the club.

Xabi, agree on all points except keeping Lovren. The man dies on occasion step up to be counted but even in games where we don’t concede he makes mistakes and gets bailed out by either his defensive comrades or the other teams lack of quality. The man is to unpredictable and talks rubbish far to often as well. Rather keep Matip than him or just replace them both.

We need a new cb. Lovren now has injury issues and Matip is not the long term solution. Why not go in big for de ligt that would give us the option of a back three ie Gomez Del ligt Vvd with trent and Robbo as wing backs. It seems senseless to wait just 4 months when we know we will need to buy for next season. Btw De ligt would be my choice but if we can't get him someone of that quality. It also gives the likes of Hoever time to learn. He will only be 21 in 5 years.

{Ed002's Note - De Ligt will not be moving to Liverpool and I doubt they have the money available to buy him.}

This defence is the best defence in the premier league for years and years for any team and you think we need to make changes?

We’ve got 1 first team RB and today had 1 fully fit CB Mikey. Gomez and Matip are both yet to go a season uninjured for LFC and Lovren is a liability.

Yes we are keeping lots of clean sheets, but we very clearly need some new blood too.

We already have a world class defender in Van Dijk and a potential world class defender in Gomez, why would we spend a fortune on a player to sit on the bench?

Agree26 3Disagree

12 Jan 2019 20:10:12
1) We don't play a back 3

2) When Gomez is fit, he has to play. As does VVD (obviously)

3) De Ligt won't sign for anyone to sit on the bench

4) I don't see what the commotion is about De Ligt. He's looked rather ordinary when I've seen him. But I have to admit, he can't be a full international and Ajax captain at 19 without merit. I just haven't witnessed it myself.

5) See 1, 2 and 3.

We have money if needs be and we have players who can be sold so I would not worry about money if klopp needs it I think he will get backed no matter what van dijk and Allison prove that.

I think he more means about how injury prone the other 3,are bar vvd! It’s frustrating how soft and fragile they are I have to agree although play gomez with vvd when fit.

We have the best 2 center backs in the prem in VVD and Gomez why go out and get another, the back ups are Ok in Matip and Lovren, don't panic.

All will be good in a few weeks.

12 Jan 2019 23:33:03
So, buy like 100 CBs in case they all get injured?

Agree2 4Disagree

12 Jan 2019 23:37:32
Play a back 3 when we have about 75% possession in most games? God give me strength, good night and well done for getting the tough 3 points on offer today.

Agree5 3Disagree

12 Jan 2019 23:55:58
We need a backup which will remain fit but it isn’t going to be a top cb like de legit.

Hopefully some of the younger players can make that step up next year. Maybe Phillips or Hoever. Maybe both.

Agree6 0Disagree

13 Jan 2019 01:54:42
Haha man can some of ya hear yourselves!? So basically we need someone who is good enough, fit enough, has wolverine powers of recovery and will be happy sitting on the bench.

Who's to say if we were to buy another CB that he'd be fit all season anyway? All teams have certain areas of the pitch that have injuries to more than 1 player at a time. It happens. None of them are long term and the only times we have moved to a back 3 with klopp is in the dying stages of games to try and hang on to a win. Gomez's broken leg was an unlucky impact injury and not muscular, vvd hasn't made it through a full season with us yet either (touch wood he does) . We are not city who can buy world class players to sit on the bench and find a convoluted way of offsetting it to escape ffp. And we have the best defense in the league and still had a clean sheet with a midfielder playing there. We are in good shape.

Gomez, lovren and matip both have injury concerns. We only have one fit and top cb.

Van Dijk isn’t bullet proof like some are making out, his injury record at Saints wasn’t great.

Agree1 0Disagree

Angus - these are the challenges of a season. An injury crisis would have been juat one fit CB for the rest of the season. Then ok, maybe u look at a solution then.

Personally, I think we should take a punt on Lloyd Kelly, he’s a really good English prospect and can play left back or centre back very comfortably. He is very rarely found wanting and dominates players much older than himself.

Agree2 0Disagree

14 Jan 2019 06:26:54
I agree FMS. I'd put a bid in for Lloyd Kelly. If we get him then ship out Moreno since he has "many offers" and apparently wants to leave for more football, which is fair.

Kelly has this VVD calmness/ cool domeanor to him and is very skillful. Could almost fill in as a winger in an old school 4-4-2. Not that we'd need but he looks like a very versatile and mature young player. I'd take him for the right price!
