Seeing reports that Mane and Can are out of this weekends fixture due to knocks. Eds please tell me this is not true.

Agree0 Disagree7

{Ed001's Note - I haven't heard one way or the other sorry.}

17 Aug 2017 21:04:20
As long as they're fit for Wednesday. If we can't beat Crystal Palace without them (Huddersfield thrashed them) then we really have problems!

Agree14 Disagree9

17 Aug 2017 21:24:28
Huddersfield's result has no baring on how we'll do. Why do fans always go "oh so and so thrashed them so we will"?

Agree19 Disagree8

17 Aug 2017 21:27:29
We have a big enough squad to cope. Grujic or Milner in for Can and then Origi, Sturridge or Solanke in for Mané. Still gives us a strong team. If we can't cope without them for a game it doesn't bode well for a season where we could (hopefully) be fighting in four different competitions!

Agree10 Disagree4

17 Aug 2017 21:38:25
People tend to forget that Palace has won on the last three visits to Anfield.

Agree20 Disagree3

17 Aug 2017 22:04:55
They'll be missing Zaha which is huge for them. I'd back us against anyone in our first home game of the season.

Agree12 Disagree5

17 Aug 2017 22:48:14
The way De Boer sets his team up helps us. I think we'll win comfortably. Hope Stuzza starts and gets an early goal, hoping for him to really show up this season.

Agree5 Disagree0

17 Aug 2017 23:25:04
If true, Kent in for Mane. Deserves his chance after pre season.

Agree15 Disagree2

18 Aug 2017 03:11:08
I'd expect origi and Milner to come in. Already looking thin. I really hope we bring in some more quality. Not 100% convinced we will. If that was the plan it would've happened already wouldn't it? Are we still going to be sat here with mere hours to end of window expecting 3 quality signings?

Agree4 Disagree4

18 Aug 2017 07:57:46
CP is our bogey team at home and De Boer will not definitely park the bus a bit cos he will not want to get thrashed like he did last week. It will not be an easy game and also, Benteke feels right at home at Anfield when on the opposing side.

Agree3 Disagree1

18 Aug 2017 08:52:55
I don't get that squad is looking thin. Who could we possibly sign to replace Mane when he's injured? Someone of the same quality that's happy to sit on the bench to wait for an injury just isn't going to happen. We have a big enough forward line to juggle things around and still beat most teams.

Agree5 Disagree2

18 Aug 2017 13:34:42
Confirmation off somebody would be good as I have mane in my fantasy lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Aug 2017 15:57:04
The squad is not thin, it's just not filled with enough quality. Still a lot of youngsters on the bench. We should have that quality that allows some of our first team (naming no names) to start on the bench.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2017 09:46:13
Those youngsters have been narrowed down over the past few seasons to those with a chance of being good enough. TAA we're seeing that potential with and Gomez was bought for that potential. People seem to think those lads will magically get experience and develop whilst sitting in the stands watching a series mid to late 20s imports play. There are plenty of players out there to buy but personally i'm not convinced those that would significantly improve things are firstly in big supply and secondly available to buy. The club now needs to do a better job with developing with what it has. There isn't a consistently top 4 standard keeper available to buy right now. We saw with Bravos and Hart last season that buying guys from bug clubs etc doesn't work out by default. Same with defenders, how many that will be consistently good enough to make LFC into title challengers are available to buy? Matip, Lovren, Gomez and Klavan may just have to be worked on and the midfield improved to cover across them.

Plus most on here would find something to moan abour. If you talk about Lloris people say the defence makes him look good, if ypu say to go for those defenders apparently they're all crap and no better than what is already here. Most who complain couldn't name genuinely viable targets they know would improve the squad to title winning level. So ultimately it is time for the coaches to be the target here and they do everything they can to sort this. There is no one shot solution out there.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi Eds,

Re: the inevitable Draxler rumour (he's instructed his agent to find him a new club)

Feels like a lot of European clubs are trying to cash-in on their cast-offs to the EPL. I notice Matuidi goes to Juve for (just) £18m.

Can't help thinking this would have been £50m+ here.

Appreciate your thoughts.

Cheers.

Agree3 Disagree3

{Ed002's Note - I have explained already.}

17 Aug 2017 13:30:18
I really don't want to see draxler at liverpool. He has a really bad attitude and is very hard to deal with as a player.

When he was a Wolfsburg he tried everything to get out of there and did poorly in training and the games. The only way he functions is when he is on the wing (he played cam at wob) and he is just not fast enough to play on our wings.

I have also read (several german media reports) that he asked his agent to find a new club and he has a good relationship with Can so Liverpool as a club could be interesteing for him but as i have said before he has a really bad attitude when he is not happy.

Agree4 Disagree19

17 Aug 2017 13:34:04
Would be a great signing for liverpool having draxler on board a forward line of salah mane draxler
Firmino
Would be extremely potent .

Agree20 Disagree7

17 Aug 2017 15:48:24
I agree deano. We need the numbers and he would certainly add some much needed quality to our brilliant but thin squad.

Agree8 Disagree3

17 Aug 2017 18:44:43
Deano, Draxler has a poor attitude and work ethic. Also, the question you should ask yourself is why is he leaving PSG having arrived only on Jan.

Agree2 Disagree7

17 Aug 2017 18:53:29
Because of neymar.

Agree13 Disagree1

17 Aug 2017 19:03:22
Didn't know about the attitude issues mentioned, but a good player in my opinion, I said this a week or so ago strangely enough. I am not ITK in any way.
He may feel he is surplus to requirements with Neymar and potentially Mbappe.
I would take a punt on him IF Coutinho left personally as opposed to a Barcelona cast off, I am sure Barcelona will push heavily for Coutinho following the Spanish Super Cup thrashing by Real.

Agree1 Disagree1

17 Aug 2017 19:06:22
Could it not be because they have just spent £200mil on Neymar and are now sniffing Mbappe's backside? If I was Draxler I'd be looking for the nearest fire exit too. Plus PSG could've told him he's surplus so they can recoup some funds.

Agree9 Disagree1

17 Aug 2017 20:12:22
Anyone saying Draxler has bad attitude coz of playing badly in training a wolfsuburg to leave, think about it, do u honestly think Coutinho whilst he wants to leave will try his best.

Agree3 Disagree1

17 Aug 2017 20:12:52
Draxler? He is so over rated. Cannot believe people would take dross like this, and moan about potentially signing Max Meyer.

Meyer is a decent little player who makes things tick. Draxler is an apparent goal scoring wide forward, but is just a German Balotelli. Bags of ability but no idea how to apply it consistently. His goal tallies are 13, 6, 2, 9, 10. He has had to move to France to get back to anything like the goal tally he had in 2012. In fact in the first half of last season he failed to score once for Wolfsburg due to his poor attitude. All 10 goals came after he signed for Paris.

He is an enigma. After we got burned by Balotelli, I'd hope we would stay away from players like this.

Agree5 Disagree12

18 Aug 2017 07:59:16
Thank you, MK. Well-put.

Agree1 Disagree2

18 Aug 2017 08:37:11
MK he is nothing at all like a German Balotelli, that is a ridiculous comparison. Balotelli is moron who has wasted his career because he is not prepared to work hard and would rather fill his time being an idiot both on the pitch and off of it. You mention his goal scoring, yet he is clearly better in this department than a certain Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, who you seem desperate for us to sign? Given that his goal tallies are over the last 5 years are 2,3,3,2,6 and that isn't even withstanding the fact that Draxler is a better all round footballer than Oxlade, since he has composure on the ball and good technique, two things that Oxlade seriously lacks. I am not saying that we should or shouldn't sign Draxler, but £32m for him or £35m for Oxlade, it isn't even an argument.

Agree3 Disagree1

17 Aug 2017 11:59:15
It was widely reported that we bid for Asensio in April- was he a possible Coutinho replacement. If so, it would indicate that the club were preparing for the future without Pipco.

Agree2 Disagree3

{Ed002's Note - Real Madrid's Marco Asensio has been the subject of interest from Arsenal who were looking at one time to replace Sanchez with him, Liverpool who saw him as an option to Brandt, Monaco as part of any deal for Mbappe and Juventus amongst others. Interersted sides have been told he is not for sale and Real Madrid are unwilling to have discussions with clubs about the player although they could yet be tested by Barcelona looking to pay his release clause - in which case it would be down to the player to decide if he would be open to a move to Barcelona.}

17 Aug 2017 12:27:44
Not a chance he'll leave in my opinion. He's come a long way in a short space of time and is on the brink of being a regular in Real Madrid's starting XI.

Agree9 Disagree0

17 Aug 2017 12:34:28
Not a realistic chance of getting him he is the next big thing already worth a place in there starting line up.

Agree4 Disagree0

17 Aug 2017 13:12:34
He looks like he could be the next big thing in football, hope he gets enough game time at Madrid.

Agree6 Disagree0

17 Aug 2017 18:45:34
He is the heir to Bale/ CR7 at Real. Good luck getting him.

Agree3 Disagree0

17 Aug 2017 21:30:14
Maybe this has been explained but why would Real want to sell to their direct competition? Is Barcelona the only club willing or able to pay the release clause?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - The release clause is of no relevance to any other side.}

17 Aug 2017 06:48:20
Hi there Eds

Is there any news on Seyi Ojo? I have heard he's going to Fulham on loan.

Does this mean we are mending some bridges with the club and we could possibly bid for Sessingon at some stage?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - he has gone there yesterday and yes it is a start but it is not going to be enough to sign Sessegnon.}

17 Aug 2017 07:56:35
Did I read him incorrectly or did ed002 say the Sessegnon no deal had nothing to do with club relations?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - Sessegnon was not coming anyway as he had decided to stay with Fulham. I don't know what Ed002 said, but that would be correct that Sessegnon was not happening either way, even if we had been on great terms as the lad himself was not interested.}

17 Aug 2017 08:38:32
I think the lad has his head screwed on, gets a season of playing regular football for a club he knows. Hasn't been tempted by money.

Agree30 Disagree0

17 Aug 2017 11:46:18
ed001 do you think Ojo has a future at Liverpool or do you think his time has gone. if his time is gone and he has a successful time at fulham do you think he could be part of a deal next summer for Sessegnon?

Agree2 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - too early to say.}

17 Aug 2017 01:30:34
Okay some bad news. Barcelona manager had just came out and said Dembele and Coutinho are close.

Agree2 Disagree30

17 Aug 2017 04:23:50
It owuldn't exactly be a shock if Coutinho did leave mate this is not out of the blue.

Agree24 Disagree1

17 Aug 2017 07:11:36
if it happens, it happens at this point. can also look at it this way - vvd and that kid from leipzig were "close" like 5 times each.

Agree16 Disagree1

17 Aug 2017 07:25:35
He'd have to say something to appease the fans after the thumping they got last night!

Agree23 Disagree0

17 Aug 2017 08:14:47
Don't believe the hype, OP. Barcelona are in decline as it stands right now and with the shalacking they received from Real (w/ o RM breaking a sweat, really), something needed to be done to calm the socios down as they are out for blood. I do know that Dembele is nearly done. As for Cou, FSG have stood their ground so we'll see what happens.

Agree5 Disagree0

17 Aug 2017 08:40:33
I don't see why you'd want to keep him at the club personally, if he wants to move and its his dream, hardly going to be a good atmosphere around the club if you force him to stay. Should thank him for the service and keep it amiable!

Agree6 Disagree3

17 Aug 2017 08:41:44
For the record, Gomes and Rakitic played last night and were utterly woeful. I would hope that brings to an end the idea that they would be acceptable in a swap.

Agree12 Disagree0

17 Aug 2017 09:23:53
Didn't need to watch the game to know that Raki and Gomez are crap, Dennis. Barcelona wants rid for a reason.

Agree7 Disagree0

17 Aug 2017 09:53:29
DeanW - because we cannot replace him at this point in time and he made the decision to try and force a move the day before the start of the season. The second part alone should mean he's forced to stay with us and shouldn't have too much issue with it - I know he's been interested in Barcelona for a while but the day before the season starting to come out with crap like 'problems with klopp for six months' and demanding a move is unacceptable.

Agree6 Disagree1

17 Aug 2017 10:15:39
Take away all the issues with letting Coutinho go, not being able to replace him etc. I hope we stand our ground just so that somebody turns around to Barcelona and says no. They might not have tapped Coutinho up but they haven't shown Liverpool any respect in the way they've gone about trying to sign him. We have him on a 5 year deal, it's World Cup year, we don't need the money so keep a strong position and don't sell him. He won't sulk unless he wants to lose his place in the Brazil team. Before anyone says it either I don't condone how we've gone about trying to sign players either.

Agree7 Disagree2

17 Aug 2017 10:23:16
He couldn't put a transfer request in before Barcelona had put an offer in, if what the Ed's have said is true its been on the cards for a year, and hardly surprising that a top class player is getting looked at by richer clubs! So that's management issues

He is a good player, but I don't believe scoring goals is our issue, so I personally don't see a huge requirement for "replacing" him. After all surely our defense is the worry right now! plus we have 2 weeks of the transfer market left, plenty of time to sign someone if we don't constantly dither around.

Agree2 Disagree6

17 Aug 2017 12:40:13
I think we've already seen Barcelona will use all kinds of spin to try to appease their fans and get what they want including briefing the press and releasing false propaganda. I'd take it all with a pinch of salt until any official announcements are made. Either way just chill we'll be just fine.

Agree2 Disagree0

16 Aug 2017 13:51:22
Hi EDs and Macca,
Thanks for creating this site for football analysis. I would like to ask a question regarding the linked Nice Midfielder Jean Michael Seri. Is there any truth in it or is just a way of putting him in the market or do we hold any real interest in him. As was mentioned that we had scout looked at him some days back.
Thanks for the info always.
YNWA.

Agree5 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - You need to ask this one of Macca please, as I have explained that Seri would be an alternative to Naby Keita - who he infers is likely on his way.}

16 Aug 2017 16:03:32
Thanks for the response ED002. I guess i will do just that.

Agree1 Disagree1

17 Aug 2017 03:50:08

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Aug 2017 12:44:43
The only info i have is as follows.

The Keita info is 100 percent correct, i know for a fact that he is looking for a property in the north west, a representative from the club has been in touch, why would that be the case if a deal wasnt close, this was last week and not before.

The general concensus within is VVD will still happen, again i believe it will.

The noise from within the club is that Coutinho will stay, but who knows what will happen if we sign the other 2?

The other player that also has a chance is the Ox, but wait and see.

It wouldn't suprise me if the club are wating to see if we qualify first before spending the money, very cynical of me but would not suprise me one bit.

We are very very short of quality within the squad and i would be amazed if things don't change before the end of August.

This is all the info i have, trust me i hope it happens, because we need it.

I am not ITK or on twitter or trying gain any form of notoriety, i just happen to know people, people who know .

And i get many things wrong, but i just pass on what i am told and i get told from top top people, trust me but the football world can change very very quickly .

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Macca.

Can't believe that some people complain when things change and blame you!
Love this site.

Agree10 Disagree6

16 Aug 2017 12:56:58
Always nice to have your inside info Macca. Thanx! Now that Juve has signed Matuidi looks like Can is also staying. If NB arrives though and Couts stays someone must clearly go.

Agree6 Disagree8

16 Aug 2017 12:57:06
Thank you Macca for another update, Your information is greatly appreciated and most of us understand that things change fast in football. Again thank you as you don't need to keep passing us on info, and keeping us updated but you choose to take the time out of your day to do so.

Agree7 Disagree4

16 Aug 2017 12:57:10
Thanks as always for your insight Macca, hope you're well mate 👍🏼.

Agree6 Disagree4

16 Aug 2017 13:12:52
Personally I think a lot of this hinges on Liverpool qualifying. Once they qualify I think things will move swiftly on a few fronts. Just my opinion.

Agree8 Disagree3

16 Aug 2017 12:58:44
Fingers crossed and im feeling optimistic. Thanks for the info macca.

Agree5 Disagree2

16 Aug 2017 12:58:55
Thanks Macca. if the Ed's give you your own page that's good enough for me!

It's good to know LFC aren't completely sitting on their hands. Do you know if any other outgoing business that's likely?

Ta.

Agree3 Disagree2

16 Aug 2017 12:59:10
Thanks Macca.

That's very encouraging.

If we do sign Keita and VVD and retain coutinho for 1 more season that would put us kn a significantly stronger position than we are now.

Agree9 Disagree2

16 Aug 2017 13:01:36
You can only tell us what you know Macca.

Agree8 Disagree2

16 Aug 2017 13:03:04
Macca - appreciated as always mate. If we do hold on to Coutinho, I just hope he knuckles down and reaches new levels. It still feels unlikely that we will get either VVD or Keith, but that is because there hasn't been any movement on either for weeks and their clubs seem adamant that neither will be sold. I hope your sources are right on this and both get over the line.

Agree5 Disagree1

16 Aug 2017 13:03:55
Thanks for keeping us up to date. Very much appreciated in what has been a stressful window.

Agree6 Disagree1

16 Aug 2017 13:06:39
Cheers Macca. Thanks for the info, We trust you as much we trust the Editors on the page. The club won't be chasing a player for months if they are sure they would never get them!

Agree5 Disagree3

16 Aug 2017 13:08:00
And on this day, Macca breaks the Internet. Lol. As always, the info is much appreciated!

Agree9 Disagree1

16 Aug 2017 13:10:42
Hi Macca and Eds

Do you think there is anything in the theory that NK and VVD have both been told by their clubs that if LFC qualify for group stages they won't stand in their way, but not before? I'd imagine FSG would go for that too and would place the onus on Klopp to qualify and explain why no secondary targets have been mooted.

Agree1 Disagree16

{Ed002's Note - Why on earth would their clubs do that?}

16 Aug 2017 13:13:10
Thanks Macca appreciate you sharing what you have heard. Those signings are exactly what we need I'm even warming to the idea of AOC as it would add abit more experience and depth to our squad.

Agree4 Disagree1

16 Aug 2017 13:14:19
Return of the mac.

Agree11 Disagree0

16 Aug 2017 13:14:22
Thanks a mil Macca.

If we aren't waiting to qualify to sign them, what else could we be waiting for?

And do you have any insight into Phil's attitude at the moment and how he'd be if we held on to him?

And how is Klopp and Coutinho's relationship at present?

Thanks again.

Agree5 Disagree1

16 Aug 2017 13:22:36
I hope you are right Macca as squad reinforcements and a creative spark are badly needed.

Its not a criticism, as any team missing Lallana, Sturridge and Coutinio, would suffer. Add this to Gomes and Clyne and its virtually half an outfield team that's out in the first week of the season.

Agree1 Disagree1

16 Aug 2017 13:23:26
Thanks Macca, we appreciate the insight you and the eds give the site. It would make sense that the club are waiting to see what happens with Champions League sad tho as the quality of those players could of made it easier to qualify with the quality they have to offer.

Hopefully club will be able to get keita and VVD (or another decent CB) and keep Couts. Would be a major turnaround for what feels like a poor window thus far.

Agree4 Disagree1

16 Aug 2017 13:26:54

16 Aug 2017 13:28:07
Hi Macca,

Thank you for your insight, it is always greatly appreciated!
Do you believe a deal will be struck for Keita? It seems a bit strange that he would be house hunting when a fee hasn't been agreed between the two clubs? Are Leipzig aware of this situation?

Thanks!

Agree3 Disagree3

16 Aug 2017 13:28:26
Some positivity Macca thanks bud! Let's hope it all goes to plan!

Agree4 Disagree0

16 Aug 2017 13:28:30
Thanks for the update Macca, I always look forward to your posts. Have you heard anything on whether Emre Can will sign a new deal? I hope so now Juventus have agreed a deal for matuidi.

Agree3 Disagree1

16 Aug 2017 13:30:08
Encouraging to read. As Macca states, it is an intent as of now and not a fact.

After all the drama this summer would be so good for this to happen. I really hope it does.

Agree4 Disagree0

16 Aug 2017 13:30:26
Thanks a lot Macca, I'm clinging onto this right now as it's really looking bleak at the moment.

Thanks for the info Macca, the result yesterday was promising and I hope for sanity's sake we get the reinforcements to compete on all fronts!

Agree4 Disagree0

16 Aug 2017 13:59:41
In fairness to Macca some great info there BUT things haven't changed, it's still the same on all fronts. It's just some more clarification. I reckon he's bang on the money with respect to the club waiting to see if we qualify fully for group stages of the CL. It makes sense. FSG are responsible owners and although they might not tip up as much money as people would like, there's no point in adding huge wages and transfer fees to the tab if we aren't going to get the revenue the CL would provide. It's good business sense.

Agree5 Disagree1

16 Aug 2017 14:00:20
Your insight is hugely appreciated Macca - thanks for taking the time to post.

16 Aug 2017 14:00:45
Love to read your posts Macca. Really hope we pull off those two deals. Appreciate the input from all the Eds and yourself. This site is a godsend compared to the sensationalism of the MSM and social media keep it up guys.

Agree5 Disagree0

16 Aug 2017 14:38:39
In response to Ed002 at 13:10, my thinking was that the clubs would struggle to justify to their fans allowing the players to leave to non-champs league clubs. They may also see a chance of keeping them if we did fail to qualify, and it may be seen as reasonable middle ground by all sides.

Just a theory. I know there's too much politics.

Oh please be right, but totally understand if circumstances change. Also to the other ED's thank you for your honest opinions. Can't ask for more than that. (Ed 025, you crack me up! Hope your lads do well, not as well obviously 😁)

Don't wanna sound pessimistic but north west. Could that be city? I have heard him mentioned them. Although he also looked for a hair dresser in liverpool. He is coming eh. 😊.

Thanks Macca

Can't wait to see Naby Keita in the Liverpool number 8 jersey. 👍🏼.

Alansbarnett didn't get the same reaction.

Thanks for the info Macca, always given in good faith and should be taken as such too!

Jezza - That's because Alansbarnet still hasn't learnt that the secret to popularity is to keep yourself scarce. ;-)

Every single time Macca posts I get tricked xD
Reading and reading thinking "hmm wishful, can’t see it happening" then I get to the end. See "Macca" and read the whole thing again jumping for joy haha
Cheers for the info Macca we really appreciate it :)

Thank you Sir,

We're like the red arrows going forward and a decent centre back away from a good side!

Eds any interest in ivan perisic? The united link seems to have cooled.

Agree1 Disagree10

{Ed001's Note - no, why would there be?}

16 Aug 2017 14:33:00
In my opinion we got a better player in Salah.

Agree8 Disagree3

15 Aug 2017 14:12:13
Ed1, is there any indication from your sources that the reason for Coutinho missing games is anything other than injury?

Agree4 Disagree3

{Ed001's Note - not at the moment, but he is close to fitness, so it will be interesting to see if he is still missing games after the weekend.}

15 Aug 2017 15:53:58
Tite has said that he will only consider players who play regularly for the WC squad, even if it is Coutinho. If the club holds firm and keep him, he needs to build bridges and get into the team and have a good season if he wants to play in the WC.

Agree21 Disagree1

15 Aug 2017 16:03:57
Cou is not that much of a sulker anyway as downing tools is not his thing. He may need time to clear his head but he will give his all esp. as his WC place is at stake as Tite does not play favorites like his incompetent predecessors Dunga and esp. Scolari.

Agree16 Disagree6

15 Aug 2017 16:17:31
Its a shame the club couldn't sort it out behind closed doors. The lad deserves his chance at barcelona. Hope he goes on and smashes it this season wherever he plays. I want to see him at the world cup.

Agree15 Disagree21

15 Aug 2017 16:23:21
Look, the kid wants to go, he'll be on the front of video games. Think in terms of a career, when you get offered a promotion you rarely turn it down. No offence to lfc, My first love. Reckon we might keep him until January. And I think you're right, he is not a sulker. He is still going to love us. Ynwa.

Agree23 Disagree7

15 Aug 2017 16:25:51
Thanks Ed, I hoped that was the case.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2017 16:57:51
Barcelona bidding at 7:30 would be interesting though. 15 mins before kickoff, with the players wondering if he would be sold before the end of the 1st half. Lol.
Unless they don't get to see the news.

Agree1 Disagree6

15 Aug 2017 19:30:27
If the club decides Coutinho is going nowhere and goes on and refuses to play for us then I will loose all respect. Then he can rot.

Suarez spat out his dummy when he found out he was not leaving immediately but still gave his all on the pitch irrespective of him being miff.

Agree2 Disagree0

16 Aug 2017 00:54:09
I fail to realize why he'd want to go to Barca. I'm serious when I say that we look more prospecting then that lot at the moment. They will need Suarez, Iniesta, Alves, Messi, Alba and Neymar replacements by a few years time, without them their squad is nothing. Not to mention his best friend left them too. And in that case PSG I'd understand with the whole Brazilian entourage, but Barcelona is falling and makes no sense.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - They are not failing that much. They will have plauyers like Dembele and Coutinho - they will look again to Dybala next summer. They are successful in Europe and Domestically.}

16 Aug 2017 07:23:43
Lol. Biggest club in the world not that good. If they're no good then can you please tell me what football tou are watching. "If they didn't have *list sll their players* they would be no good. " what? If my house had no roof then I would get wet. But it has got a roof and now znd then needs a bit of attention. Players are so much more intelligent as they reach their peak 27 - 31 and more likely to go well in knock out comps. Barcelona are very dangerous. We beat bayern, we beat chelsea arsenal city and spurs last term. Barcelona would try to play football with us and thus would be playing right into our hands.

Agree8 Disagree1

16 Aug 2017 08:17:46
If they're not that good, god knows what we are then. I was not convinced last night. That midfield and defence is poo.

Agree1 Disagree1

16 Aug 2017 15:06:47
Defence was class last night. We won, away from home at a very decent side. Our boys tactics were near perfect. Hoffenhiem may have more of the ball but that is how liverpool played it. Last night the result was more important than playing silky football. If not for fantastic defending we would have more work to do at anfield.

Agree8 Disagree1

16 Aug 2017 15:41:25
Can I have some of what your on please Superred91.

Agree1 Disagree4

16 Aug 2017 16:54:25
I'm afraid you can't Lancaster. Steven Gerrard called the defence brilliant last night and I agree. I though we defended excellently.

Agree4 Disagree0

16 Aug 2017 17:05:48
Did you see how we let them have the ball? We didn't press them how we normally do. It was the game plan to soak up their pressure and punish them on the break. This is European football and hoffenhiem were a decent side who are very strong at home. Teams are always going to get through. Ok lovren wasn't amazing but he did make some vital interceptions and tackles, headers. Look. We won. Somewhere bayern and dortmund came unstuck.

Agree8 Disagree0

16 Aug 2017 20:08:56
Our defence has many faults and they have been awful at times. I admit to going a bit OTT when it comes to rating liverpool players but I was very happy that we got a result and look like qualifying for UCL now. I also love my club and believe credit where it's due. The boys did pretty well defencively. That touch matip did to stop the cross reaching hoffenhiem forward. Brilliant. I think for once they earned some praise.

Agree5 Disagree0

17 Aug 2017 08:44:34
Biggest thing with being at Barcelona is pretty much guaranteed ECL every year because of the league they are in.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Aug 2017 14:49:23
Hi Eds, probably just the media jumping the gun expecting Couts to go because of his transfer request, but any truth in the Arturo Vidal talk. id give both my nuts to see LFC sign someone of that caliber for once in my lifetime

Love the page shots Eds.

Agree5 Disagree9

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool making any approach for Vidal.}

15 Aug 2017 15:07:23
You must be young. We signed Torres, Suarez, Alonso, and a fellow named coutinho. I'm guess all in your lifetime.

Agree15 Disagree3

15 Aug 2017 15:19:54
He was a world class player at his peak, but his peak is ending and at £50m, that's a lot of money for a bloke who doesn't have many of miles left the clock.

Agree14 Disagree0

15 Aug 2017 15:20:55
I feel the transfer window will either go two ways. We'll keep Coutinho to mask over our failed transfer dealings or, we'Lloyd sell Coutinho and end up making a few signings very late. I hope I'm wrong though, and I hope we do well tonight! Got anxiety already lol.

Agree2 Disagree1

15 Aug 2017 15:18:24
As my dad once said to me when I suggested we could Pablo aimar back in 03, 'he wouldn't piss on us I we were on fire. '

Agree9 Disagree1

15 Aug 2017 16:05:23
Or we could keep Cou and still sign players, right Jigz?

Agree8 Disagree0

15 Aug 2017 18:19:12
Yes of course we could. I'm just voicing what I feel. Doesn't mean I'm right. I'm still recovering from my failed Keita prediction lol.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Aug 2017 18:21:30
Pablo Aimar. wow.

Memories, simikar to Turan ones.

Agree4 Disagree0

15 Aug 2017 19:11:39
Pablo Aimar was my second favourite saga after Simao!
