"The problem with these things is that whatever I say it always leaves a little bit of speculation, " Klopp said. "If I say he is not for selling, he is not for selling. There is nothing else to say. It's a club decision, it's my decision. That's how it is.

"That is so that we can end the speculation and not talk about anything else.

Lets hope this ends all Coutinho debates, it really can't get any clearer than that.

I'm also confident Keita and Dick will be at Melwood within a week.

Big LFC welcome to Andrew Robertson, hopefully another in a long line of great Scots at Anfield.

Can't see Phil C leaving this season, even if Psg sign Neymar.
He is adored here and as Neymar has already found, it's very hard to shine bright at Barcelona due to the eclipse that is Messi and the rightful adulation their fans give him, he may win more but in terms of being loved he couldn't be at a better club. I'm not naive enough to belive that's enough, but I honestly believe in the next 2 seasons, we will be right up there for all the top honours.

I agree 100% with most of this, although I am still shizzle scared of him leaving us. i’m 70% certain he will go but I 100% hope not!
What confuses me is what Neymar has said for his reasons to wanting to leave, yet it wasn’t that long ago he was trying to pursued Coutinho to join 😑.

A mate has just messaged me to say he has heard a fee has been agreed for Keita. £75m with most of it being paid up-front.

He also said VVD was close, for a fee around £65m.

That's £140m on 2 players. Hope Barcelona don't come back with £110m-£120m for Coutinho, once they get the Neymar money :- (.

Heard this too. Strange given so many people here thought the deal was over. What are they going to say when he signs. Apologise to Harry et al?

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jul 2017 22:28:43
A lot of different stories coming out that we have agreed a few of £74.5million for keita?

Any news on this eds?

Agree2 2Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I suspect it is one story being repeated.}

23 Jul 2017 00:15:28
But is it a true story ed002?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea at all.}

22 Jul 2017 22:02:45
I am really hoping we manage to sign VVD and N. Keita. Truthfully i cannot believe the value of professional footballers these days it's absolutely astronamical!

Everything has gone to pot ever since Pogba went to United and he it never worth 80m.

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Jul 2017 23:17:45
So are you saying Keita isn't worth £75m then?

Agree0 1Disagree

22 Jul 2017 23:40:06
I don't think so but at least we didn't sell him for £100k, makes it a little less painful.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jul 2017 23:49:32
Is any player truly worth such a high percentage of the clubs entire value?

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jul 2017 23:53:03
Keita is worth it now but only because of the inflation in the market which (although it was already bad) is crazy right now, 50 mill for walker, 50mill being touted for sigurdson, the 200mill being spoke about for Neymar, the market right now is madness at the time you made the pogba deal it was bad but not as bad as its been this window like.

Ed002 just wondering if you hate transfer windows were we as fans assume this and that and never get it right and should of listened to what all you Eds say. As you all do a marvellous job and always tell us fans what's going on.

Agree2 4Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I will take this as a compliment, I think.}

Watching that game today just emphasised how much we need a new centre half. Again simple balls over the top and klavan and lovren were caught asleep.

VVD is a must and hopefully himself and Matip can build a partnership.

Very impressed with TAA very composed on the ball and has great pace and positional sense it looks like the Jersey could be his to lose.

I would also like to take the chance to thank the eds for all the work they do on this site, there is nothing else like it. Top job lads.

Agree7 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Thanks Jimmy.}

22 Jul 2017 19:57:35
I agree about TAA. Even though he's young, he's simply better than Clyne both attacking and marginally in defence too. He should be starting when fit.

Agree3 2Disagree

22 Jul 2017 19:34:49
Let's be honest and not lie.

TAA was in no man's land for Leicester opener. Milner no matter how many people are his fans is finished! I can't imagine what he would do at RB. He offers simply a big Zero upfront.
I thought Wijnaldum struggled in the holding role. Clearly not his territory. Mahrez cut him to shoes more than thrice.
Coutinho juts exceptional. The way his pics players with his passing is on another level.
Lallana as usual hard core running, nothing else.

We looked like a flat tyre in the second half thanks we scored twice in the first half.
Henderson was ok. Covered the back line well. But who in the absence of Coutinho is going to create goal scoring chances for the front three?
Did we create one chance in the second half!

Jamey Vardy got behind our backline some 10 times today! And if you still feel we don't need a CB then God help all of us!

22 Jul 2017 20:45:36
What I got out off the game today is that karius makes me nervous and is not my number 1,TAA looks a top prospect and I'd play him before clyne but you have to expect lots off mistakes so would the fans be patient enough I don't know, I'd play three at the back if we buy VVD and ward in goal, coutinho is key so we have to keep him but I do think it's a matter off when not if he goes.

Agree3 3Disagree

22 Jul 2017 21:02:39
nice one Naby Keita Ding Dong, 4 pre season games in and its nice to see loads of negativity. am sure we are more than just a one man team Coutinho was great last season but it was mane that we missed most because of his pace. And the back four will struggle when you are making that many changes.

Agree2 3Disagree

22 Jul 2017 21:17:19
Harry, it was Origi at fault for the Leicester goal, he didn't track Fuchs, watch it again and you'll see what I mean. As for Wij, I actually thought he played well, but he was very isolated with Lallana and Coûts always diving in and getting beaten by Mahrez. Agree I prefer him further forward though. 2nd half was just seeing it out, also with the amount of changes made, its very difficult to keep good attacking rhythm. Milner had no chance for the goal, and defended well, had a niggling injury but still got forward. I do enjoy your insight but you judge some players very unfairly.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Jul 2017 21:39:22
Harry the goal was not TAA's fault. It's great to see you so positive. Both teams where struggling with the heat in the second half and resorted to going long.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jul 2017 22:26:46
Well said Shrewsbury red. If you actually watch goal again and look at bigger picture not just the ball. You will clearly see origi switches off and doesn't track runner thus meaning taa is left 2 on 1 and you see him shouting at origi! Special mention to our captain he looks very sharp and has obviously worked really hard over last few months, great attitude.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jul 2017 22:33:31
They were all very professional today Harry lad, i thought Klavan did ok but let's not be too harsh he's going to be a good squad man the rest just did a nice pro job
I'll take that and Migs is by far our number 1 and has improved immensely in my book.
So far so good.

TAA had to close the wide player who had been left free by the midfield, this was what created the space to get the cross in. If you double up out wide the cross doesn't happen. The kid reads the game better than some of his established team members.

Stop reading so much into a pre season game that is played between very hard fitness training sessions.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jul 2017 23:24:17
You are not even close Grino
Mane like any other world class winger need somebody to pick him when he moves or runs which is what Coutinho does it week in week out!
We did not miss Mane, we missed a winger who could score goals for all the chances that Firmino kept missing.

Liverpool in the absence of Mane will create plenty of chances. But Liverpool in the absence of Coutinho creates very very few chances to score!

Coutinho make things happen for all the Mane's, Salah's and Firmino's! Not the other way around!

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jul 2017 23:59:13
Thanks Shrewsbury

Thought Salah did not help TAA much in the first half tacking back! I believe we should stop opposition putting crosses than defending in the air
Wijnaldum Yes he is not a holding player!

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jul 2017 00:19:16
Seems to me that Harry is an easy target for some people. He speaks his mind and is passionate about LFC. Might disagree with him a bit but he's a Red, good enough for me.

Hi ED's Let me start off by saying thank you for the hard you all do thank you so much.
My question why would Liverpool waste they time to put in a third bid when the club has made it clearly we don't want and we don't need to sale our player. Unless Liverpool have been told offer us ths amount for the player and we now can talk to talk about the possibility maybe I'm wrong but it just seem a waster of time and resources at this point. Again I would like to thank you all for the great work you all do ED's.

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of RBL stating that if Liverpool offer €xM they will accept it.}

22 Jul 2017 18:57:33
Ed002, if report's are correct and lfc have or will make a £75m offer do you think this is the amount the deal could be brokered on?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I have no feeling at all for it - and any submission will be in €s not £s.}
