liverpool have accepted a £3.5million offer from rosenborg for pedro chirivella.


1.) 30 Jul 2018 15:42:29
With a buyback option for the first 3 years. That's a key part of the deal.



06 Jun 2018 20:32:43
Graham Beecroft who I've always found pretty reliable has just said Shaqiri def not being looked at by Liverpool and we aren't after Butland anymore either.

Make of that what you will during the transfer window silly season.


1.) 06 Jun 2018 20:59:07
Make of it what you will- It would make the window bloody marvellous if we are not looking at signing relegation fodder.

2.) 06 Jun 2018 21:07:51
I like Beecy, seems to know what he’s talking about.

3.) 06 Jun 2018 21:11:36
Like Andy Robertson you mean?

{Ed025's Note - good point dexter..

4.) 06 Jun 2018 21:39:51
Ive always thought he just reads the echo and relays whatever that says . I hope this time he's correct though.

5.) 06 Jun 2018 21:46:19
Mellissa and Paul Joyce claims we are definitely after him! Lol nobody knows what’s happening around.

6.) 06 Jun 2018 21:52:58
I wouldn’t mind Shaqiri at all for 12 million was stokes best player by a mile last year and he’s good cover. God forbid though we stay well clear of Butland.

7.) 06 Jun 2018 22:47:11
Shaqiri has an attitude probelm. doesn't even take the itk to see that. Just watch motd. he's not a player that we require. he's good for 10 games a season tops.

8.) 06 Jun 2018 22:46:08
Good enough player for back up, the sort of player Chelsea have had on their bench for years. I don’t know about the rest of what he might bring as to whether it would be a good idea or not though.

9.) 07 Jun 2018 01:14:06
shaqiris a klopp player. too lazy but klopp can figure that out. scores freekicks and outside of box like couts used to do when teams sat back. I thought he should have signed last year along with mertiens. Good squad not first team but squad.

10.) 07 Jun 2018 01:16:00
From all accounts about his personality, he would moan and whinge constantly if he was a bench player. Also, could you imagine him working for the team, pressing, I can’t. Avoid at all costs!

11.) 07 Jun 2018 03:56:21
I’d rather we got Fekir (who can also cover wide), Alisson and then get someone like Moses Simon who’s young and may improve, and let him and Wilson be the backup options out wide.

We don’t need a Prima Donna like Shaqiri in the dressing room when he’s not good enough to start.

12.) 07 Jun 2018 05:51:25
All these Stoke players are smokescreens for the real target, the return of Peter Crouch.

13.) 07 Jun 2018 06:22:27
The best thing to come out of all this is that Liverpool are starting to tighten up and do their business behind closed doors and are keeping it under wraps for as long as possible.

That’s a good thing and can only result in lower fees and less competition.



31 Aug 2017 18:23:01
Ballague just stated live on Sly 6.22pm that Couts is not being sold even if Barcelona raise their offer to 150m/ 160m euros.

Most expensive U23s player ever? :)


1.) 31 Aug 2017 18:32:16
Maybe if he was under 23.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 18:44:25
In the U23 league, 3 players over the age of 23 can be play at the same time in the team.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 18:51:24
Firmane, I think he is referencing coutinho playing in the u23 squad, not that he is under the age of 23.

4.) 31 Aug 2017 18:53:56
Haha. I think it's more to do with the fact he's refused to play first team football and to be named in our champions league squad so he will end up in reserves/ und23 team.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 18:58:57
He might be dropped for a game or two, but unlikely to be much more in it then that. Same with VVD at Soton.

6.) 31 Aug 2017 19:00:54
Ed002 has given enough hint, he is gone.

7.) 31 Aug 2017 19:43:26
He doesn't deserve a route back to the first team. If he does then it's hardly fair when you consider the punishment that Sakho received. For arguably lesser indiscretions.

8.) 31 Aug 2017 21:05:56
What's he actually done? Not refused to play for us, just requested a move to the club all South Americans want to end up at.

Has given his all for us since he arrived and if we don't sell him we should be welcoming him back and be greatful for having such a talent playing for our great club. And owners that had the balls to resist the massive money on offer.

9.) 31 Aug 2017 21:36:16
Beddoe, he has actually refused to play, he had feigned injury and illness, yet was well enough to make himself available for Brazil and be selected, he's told the club that he doesn't want to be in the champions league squad and he's been putting word around that he doesn't get on with Klopp to create disharmony in the squad. Now you tell me that any of that is acceptable? He shouldn't even be selected for the u23's. Frankly, training with the youth team is an insult to the youth team.

14 Oct 2018 18:22:53
Clearly I don't want anyone injured but our front three have been off key (and klopp does not seem keen to change them often) so if salah out then be good to see what Shaq can bring to the party at Huddersfield!

Also, if VVD out due to rib injury then happy to see more of Livren and Gomez with Trent returning to RB.


1.) 14 Oct 2018 23:05:05
It will be nice to see some of the fringe players getting a go because we have a fantastic bench.

2.) 15 Oct 2018 01:09:24
I don’t care who plays so long as we win.

3.) 15 Oct 2018 19:31:49
Spot on, Kramer.



23 Sep 2018 15:38:19
I have 2 observations having just watched Chelsea play (though i do take in to account post champions league game away for them and delay getting back) :

1) they lose the ball a lot when pressed

2) they are very open to the counter attack and pace with Sarri's system

As they are playing at home for the league game they will try and attack us which I feel suits us down to the ground (and could be similar to spurs game) .


1.) 23 Sep 2018 16:57:12
Which is why I said we would batter them weeks ago.

The system now is absolute perfection for us to win.

Chelsea use to be our kryptonite now they are our bread and butter games!

Just watch.

2.) 23 Sep 2018 17:34:05
They have had a good start and they have some of the world's very best players in hazard and Kante but I believe they will fall away. They aren't as strong as they were last year on paper.

Losing to Liverpool will start to put their season in perspective. City are the competition and they don't seem as strong as they were last year, missing de bryne I think. Where as we look stronger, are stronger and have come through the big tests with 3 lovely points.

3.) 23 Sep 2018 18:06:29
The used to be a time where Liverpool supporters were considered the most knowledgeable, but now we are among the most arrogant.
Chelsea have done well so far this season, as have we. Whilst I also hope we batter them, I expect a tough game.
The players Chelsea have, demands us to respect them as opponents. To call a top 4 rival, no matter how much we dislike them, 'our bread and butter, is the type of comment that will come back to bite us.
How about we show a bit of the Bob Paisley about us and go about things in a humble fashion?

4.) 23 Sep 2018 18:25:51
I respect Chelsea. They are a good team. Not as much as I respect utd, arsenal and even spurs. I don't think they are genuine title contenders though. I don't think they will win the champions league.

5.) 23 Sep 2018 18:59:17
The way they play.

It's the exact team we tear to pieces. Did you not defuse absolutely dominate against psg.

If teams try and play against us we just murder them it's as simple as that, do you not know how good we are nowadays.

Put men behind the ball and respect us or you will come unstuck.

6.) 23 Sep 2018 19:22:04
Lets not get cocky and over confident everyone. It will be a tough game. They have some really good players and a good attacking system.

7.) 23 Sep 2018 20:11:41
Chelsea are a decent side and have a fantastic player in Hazard that can turn the game on it’s head.

I expect a hard fought encounter.

8.) 23 Sep 2018 20:22:25
A lesson to take note of today as WHU shackled Hazard and Alonso. It can be done. And they will have to cope with our front three running at them. It will be a good game.

9.) 23 Sep 2018 20:48:28
These are my observations from West Ham-Chelsea game:
1. They kick off in very attacking fashion (very unusual as pointed out by Jamie on Monday Night Football), and they most of the time aerial pass on the left hand side (where there is presence of Hazard and Alonso) what I believe there target is to attack in first moments where opposition are caught unaware.

2. The focal point of there play is through Jorginho, who reminds me of Xabi Alonso. Helps the defence when under opposition attack and starts play when under possession.

3. Hazard is given free role in this Sarri's system, striker Giroud acts as target man and midfielder Kante's role in this system has changed to B2B instead of destroyer in previous managers system.

4. Alonso's main emphasis is on attack more, so most of their attack are from left side, while Aspi turns defence 2 into 3 while under possession.

How I believe that we should play against Chelsea:
1. I believe Sarri will make their players to play counter attack, rather than possession based attack against us. Which means Alonso won't be given licence to bomb forward.

2. Our strength is to recover ball asap and intelligent press, which will be fruitful against them.

3. Long balls will be a threat with Giroud on field and his ability to pass the ball to players alongside him (Pedro, Willian, Hazards, etc. ) which needs to be look out for.

4. When the backline and jorginho will be pressed they will make mistakes, but we should also be careful not to commit too many personnels forward as they are good on counter and have great individual talents.

5. Finally, we should convert the chances that we create.

10.) 24 Sep 2018 09:37:36
Chelsea and City completed my top 3 picks for this season’s premier league.

11.) 24 Sep 2018 15:38:17
I have 2 observation.
Kante is underused. Coz he is no Hamsik, and won’t ever score goals that Sarri wants from his midfielders! Between Jorginho and Kante Sarri has to drop one.

Chelsea should have never passed on Fekir!



23 Sep 2018 10:21:50
2 quick points (do others agree? )

1) loving our more mature performances managing games better based on the confidence our stronger defence brings so we don't have to play gung ho and win every game 5-0

2) teams are playing us with fear now which evens things out with city where teams almost gave up before the game began last season (used to happen too with fergies United also) - this is a big point for me and will help us massively this season.

A great start and still feel we can go up a gear at any point eg PSG if need a winner.


1.) 23 Sep 2018 10:33:29
Completely agree mate!

2.) 23 Sep 2018 10:38:23
Hope you’re on the mend Salah?

3.) 23 Sep 2018 10:49:06
100% agree 1jj mate.

4.) 23 Sep 2018 10:52:40
Thanks 1jj, I'm getting there now mate. I can't really complain :) .

5.) 23 Sep 2018 11:10:32
Good to hear salah, keep well my friend.

6.) 23 Sep 2018 11:13:56
You too 1jj, take care and have a good day mate!

7.) 23 Sep 2018 13:31:12
Salah, are you back to work?

8.) 23 Sep 2018 14:14:44
I agree to a point. But ii hope we don't lose the league because of inferior goal difference. Chasing goals against Palace lost us the league under Brenda. Yesterday's game did however put two hoodoo's to bed. Playing after champions league match and playing early Saturday kick off. previous excuses for failing to win. Don't wash any more. We are Liverpool We Win. It's what we do.

9.) 23 Sep 2018 16:17:00
I'm not back at work stone mate, but I've been helping out with paperwork there for a few hours on most days just to pass the time lol.

10.) 23 Sep 2018 17:29:08
well at least you are slowly getting back to it. all the best.

11.) 23 Sep 2018 17:46:03
Good point 1jj I was thinking the same things. Teams are almost resigned to losing at a field before a ball is kicked. This is a massive boost.



02 Sep 2018 21:23:28
Our run of tough matches will be the kick start we need this season. I feel we have been too casual in three of our four games so having to up our game for the whole 90 mins to beat the likes of spurs, Chelsea, PSG etc will get our front 3 especially back to their fluent best.

Salah and Ron and others, do you agree?

Bring it on I say!


1.) 02 Sep 2018 21:35:00
Dude. The last time we had a start like this we just got results for the first few months. December hit we tonked spurs 5-0 And then went to within a whisker of the championship.

1. We had a squad half of what we have now.

2. We have a manager who has won the title before.

3. We have more than one superior level player. When the time comes we have the keeper who will bail us out. Vvd has had those matches all ready. Salah isn't firing well mane will step to it. Fabinho wants time to settle then wij will hold the fort.

I don't want to jinx a thing but there is something brewing.

I have never felt this confident.

2.) 02 Sep 2018 22:07:51
1jj good post mate, I think we'll annihilate the lot of them personally mate. Some people may think I'm being far TOO confident but I genuinely do believe we can beat anybody with this team. We've been playing average yet still getting the results.

I think once we come up against the top teams we'll really turn it on and show people what we are capable of, not that we need to because I think we did that enough last season but this season with the new additions we'll thrive mate.

I don't expect us to go and win every single game but I do truly believe we'll win the league and not only just by a bit, I think we'll smash it.

It's been years since I've been this confident about a Liverpool squad but these lads are capable. I think the biggest problem these days is, we were out of the limelight for far too long and there's so many big named teams now like Spurs, Chelsea, PSG, Barca, RM, City etc etc and we automatically assume we aren't up there with them but we are! We're one of the best teams in Europe with this squad. They can't touch us on our day, bring whoever comes on because they'll get the shock of their lives, no team is wanting to play Liverpool right now, why? because we're capable of embarrassing them.

Believe lads because the good times are coming :) .

3.) 02 Sep 2018 22:15:50
I definitely agree that it will focus the minds of the payers a bit more. They’ve had a nice gentle start to the season, shaken off a bit of ring rust, picked up maximum points and now it’s time to shine.
The front 3 have moved brilliantly and the understanding is still there. Mane has started well, Bobby is improving and Mo could click at any time. I have noticed Mo is being heavily marked so far but I expect that to be less of an issue once he’s up to speed. You can’t mark what you can’t see 😄

I don’t think we’ll hammer all those teams, I think we’ll do a professional job on them. We may drop some points but we’ll be very tough to beat with VVD and Alisson 👍.

4.) 02 Sep 2018 22:18:38
Good man salah, hope your recovery is coming along!

5.) 02 Sep 2018 23:12:08
How different the tone here would be if it was migs or karius that done that yesterday.

6.) 02 Sep 2018 23:20:14
Did anyone hear the NBCSN coverage yesterday? I thought I heard Robbie Earl (spelling) say that he thought Liverpool would prioritize the premier league and Man City would prioritize the Champions League. Did I hear that correctly? I can't imagine Pep or Klopp sacrificing either.

{Ed002's Note - That is based upon the priorities of the owners. It doesn’t mean that the clubs, like all others, won’t try to win every game.}

7.) 03 Sep 2018 02:53:00
Neither Klopp nor Pep will prioritize one major competition over another. We will see weakened lineups fielded for the Carabao Cup but neither manager will have preferences for the league or UCL. Both competitions are huge and clubs like LFC and MCFC should be looking to win such competitions on a regular basis, not consider them as afterthoughts.

{Ed001's Note - Pep will 100% prioritise the Champs League this season. He was not brought to City to win the Prem, his remit is to deliver the Champions League. That is the prize the owners want.}

8.) 03 Sep 2018 05:38:37
Oh tough luck for Pep and City because Liverpool are going to win the Champions League this year.

9.) 03 Sep 2018 07:37:53
Lol hanif, boom! there you go mate! now that's the attitude I like to see :) .

10.) 03 Sep 2018 07:41:22
Walkon79 - if Migs or Karius had done the same thing it would probably have been after they'd already let a goal in and it would destroy their confidence so much that we'd have ended up at 2-2. From what I saw, Alisson just shrugged it off 👍.

11.) 03 Sep 2018 13:36:47
I agree Johnny. Alisson has credit at the moment because he’s been near faultless so far this season and his blip ultimately didn’t cost us.
If he continues as he is and makes a couple of those mistakes a season I’m happy with that. The rest of his game oozes class we really do have a top keeper there. Finally!

12.) 03 Sep 2018 14:11:34
Walkon79, Migs alone made THREE mistakes in this fixture last season so your point is moot. As someone who wanted Karius to succeed and I felt that he helped us a lot when he was made no. 1 in Jan, the fact of the matter is that Allison is light years ahead of Karius and Migs is well-inferior to Karius, which just shows the gulf in class btw he (Migs) and Alisson. His mistake does not disprove these facts. Now Did Alisson make a mistake? Yes. Should he do that mistake again? HECK NO! His next mistake should be a diff. type of mistake, NOT the same one as we saw Sat.

13.) 03 Sep 2018 15:29:07
Ed001, don't you think Mane had 2-3 chances to run at their defence and instead slowed down the play for others to join in or hold ball? I thought this was different from the way he generally plays. Would love you hear your thoughts on this.

{Ed001's Note - they were not leaving themselves open for him to run at them, so he was trying to keep possession and the lead, I would say.}

14.) 03 Sep 2018 21:11:11
Thanks again Ed. Don't know what we would do with you and the site.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate. He did have a difficult second half as he was often back covering Robbo, rather than sitting up top, it is not ideal for a player like him.}



01 Sep 2018 18:21:29
Has klopp changed tactics? We go 1-0 up then pretty much sit deep and look to counter. I assume that with all our clean sheets since vvd arrived that he feels we will win more games 1 or maybe 2-0 than going for the 4-0s every game and conceding goals by being too open?


{Ed002's Note - He will be relying on long throw ins from now on.}

1.) 01 Sep 2018 18:29:04
As long as we win every week I couldn't care if all our goals came from long throws. we were comfortable today. they had zero chances after we gifted them a goal. we were poor and still won, that's the sign of a good team.

2.) 01 Sep 2018 18:34:45
He's not tactically good enough imo to play defensively when 1 up, play to our strengths .

3.) 01 Sep 2018 18:49:20
Spot on Mcgoveb.

4.) 01 Sep 2018 19:27:30
Mcgoveb, our defensive record this calendar year seems to disprove your theory.

5.) 01 Sep 2018 19:40:27
I don't think he is intentionally sitting back, as such. You have to remember we played a great first half and then Leicester came out fighting in the second. They are a tough team with the crowd behind them. we don't have a great record against Leicester or against Puel and we can't expect to steamroller teams every week. Salah was off today, there were some sloppy passes and Leicester played well. Overall I think it was a good result, even if we didn't win by 3 or 4.

6.) 01 Sep 2018 21:36:12
Perception or whatever you call yourself these days, I bet you are upset we have 12 points so you can't go into full winge moad.

Give it a rest and support the team or don't you want us to win the league?

We have the team and squad now to really challenge in the prem and champions league. I expect us to win one of those.

7.) 01 Sep 2018 22:48:14
Mcgoveb and Harry, LFC have the best defensive record in the PL since the Spurs game last Oct. We have conceded the least amount of goals and least amount of shots to the opposition since Jan. We also have the BEST defensive record in the PL right now. Oh and btw, Klopp won the German League whilst having the BEST defence in the league that year so your premise that Klopp is not good enough to play defensively, is empirically and patently false. Thanks for playing, tho.

Amazing how no one has mentioned money. Maybe he will get a big signing on fee and whopping weekly wages guaranteed for four or five years.

This could set him up for life to live in one of the most fantastic cities in the world. Doesn’t sound that bad to me. And maybe he’s happy to be second fiddle to achieve this.

Good luck to him - wish I had that type of luck!

The more experienced and quality players we have, within reason, the more likely we are to win trophies. I want us to win trophies as we are hardly trophy laden recently so good for me. Plus I’d imagine the pressures on Klopp this year to do likewise so why risk anything as a few injuries and you’re suddenly light again like last year.

Never leave things to chance.

Oh get over yourselves! Klopp goes a little bonkers in virtually every game it’s just it picked this one up for one player more obviously.

He’s a brilliant man manager - some people
Need an arm round their shoulder and some need a stronger arm. He knows what he’s doing.
