Red Star Belgrade have accepted a Β£5.1m bid from LFC for midfielder Marko Grujic. Apparently we'll loan him back to them till the Summer.


1.) 23 Dec 2015 23:14:05
Great, so basically we've signed another loan player πŸ˜‚.

When Jurgen arrived almost everyone billed this game as the yardstick. Mourinho v Klopp would be coming along at a seemly time to start judging our new management against "the Special One".
Well, let's call that job done as far as that particular test is concerned.
Liverpool, under Jurgen Klopp, are unbeaten so far and looking happier and more together than I can remember.

In a way this reminds me of LFC under Rafa but with a warmth that Benitez never encouraged.
Jurgen Klopp has got my heart working more normally. no longer do I dread set-pieces around our box and going a goal behind isn't game-over any more.
Skrtel and Moreno are still dodgy defensively but that isn't quite so important when we are controlling possession and encouraging sensible passing out of defence as opposed to over-passing at the back.

Going forward, we appear to be retaining possession better and regaining the ball more when we lose it.
Okay, our end-product needs to be more clinical but a fit Benteke will be invaluable in our forward play. He changed the focus of our attack when he came on today because he's brilliant at holding up play and winning the airial battles. Firminho, Coutinho, Milner, Lallana, Ibe, Texeira and Henderson should all be able to profit from a fit Benteke or Sturridge. And vice versa.

Almost every player has improved under Jurgen Klopp and his team and there is a definite togetherness which hasn't been in evidence for far too long.
I'm too old to be fooled by false dawns but I'm willing to bet that we are all watching the real deal under Klopp. The Liver Bird could be rising from the ashes but we have to accept that it's very early on in Jurgen's reign but I can't see Man Utd., Chelsea or Spurs finishing above us this season. Even Man City and Arsenal are vulnerable and both have to visit Anfield.

Let's turn on the enthusiasm and atmosphere at home (we were superb at Chelsea today) and get behind our team wholeheartedly.
I'm starting to seriously regret giving up my season-ticket last May but I hope my regret continues. I'm sure it will under Jurgen Klopp die Kopkonig (The Kop King)


1.) 01 Nov 2015 09:19:59
I agree with most of what you say, but think we still look very dodgy at defending set pieces. I think we can all see progress and the potential and that's exciting!

2.) 01 Nov 2015 12:12:25
On the point of looking happier I haven't seen the team celebrate like that in a while, I think changing room selfies is a bit over the too as it's just one win, but it's good to see them happy and look like it means more to them.



03 Oct 2015 20:00:21
I thought after the Sion debacle that Rodgers would be the first managerial casualty but, after today, McClaren could do worse than surfing Fish4Jobs on his laptop going back to Newcastle tonight.
I can see De Boer at St.James' and Ancelotti at Anfield before the week is through.
Purely based on my guts and with no inside info whatsoever these are my odds on who'll be in charge of us after the international-break;

Ancelotti 10/11
Rodgers Evens
Un-mentioned 5/2
O'Driscoll 4/1 *
Klopp 13/2
De Boer 7/1
Carragher 33/1 *
*(as caretaker)

I'm not sure if these prices make mathematical sense but I'm not a bookie. Just wanted to put my tuppence-worth into the mix while waiting for the rugby to start.

Personally, would like Ancelotti or Klopp for different reasons.
The expensive and ambitious players we've got (Coutinho, Firminho, Sakho, Sturridge, Benteke etc.) not to mention our youngsters, need a successful manager to follow. Someone who doesn't just make it up as he goes along.




20 Aug 2015 14:13:03
Lucas Leiva on his way to Besiktas on loan. wtf?
Even if we have a replacement lined up this is stupid beyond words !!




12 Jul 2015 18:20:36
Β£49M agreed with Citeh. luvvly jubbly !!

I was going to make the comparison of Fabinho with Patrick Vieira but I see 1985Mikey1985 has beaten me to it. Looks like a very shrewd signing given we need a ball-winning CDM and he won't be going to the World Cup.

I've seen very little of the lad but from what I have he seems very mobile with great timing in the tackle (albeit French League) and good vision. With Keita already secured and loanees set to possibly return (I'd still like Grujic to be given a pre-season chance) we seem to be assembling a decent-looking midfield. Okay, Can seems Juve-bound and the Ox could be out for the first few months of the season but things are taking shape.

The importance of a top-class goalie can't be understated and I also think Nabil Fekir would be a welcome addition plus a quality CB but I've got a feeling none of that will happen (maybe Buffon coming in and Karius out on loan? ) .
Whatever DOES happen this Summer we have to be fully recovered from Kiev and armed and dangerous for 2018/ 19 from the start!

Youngsters like Woodburn, Wilson, Juanma, Grujic and Adekanye etc. are raring to be given the chance and they should be (in an ideal world) but are they good enough?

Liverpool Football Club, like every other football club, is a brutal business and books have to be balanced, careers curtailed and aspiring players sold or let go.
We have a weaker bench than some of the really top teams (if you need to go for the jugular with 10mins to go will the sight of Solanke, Ings and Woodburn warming up terrify the opposition knowing they're coming on for Salah, Firminho or Mane? ) .
This dilemma was best highlighted in Kiev on Saturday and I'll leave it at that!


1.) 29 May 2018 19:50:49
I doubt Klopp will ask Fabinho to surge forward like Wijnaldum or Viera. That is why we signed Kieta and probably Fekir. Fabinho would be here to stop the attacks and also deal with the long balls in perticular.

2.) 29 May 2018 21:23:59
Surge forward like wijnaldum and veria

Wow veria would be insulted hearing that comparison.

{Ed025's Note - so would viera dezy.. :)

Very good ed very good πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.



26 Aug 2017 15:23:58
Even if we had a happy Coutinho and Sakho at our disposal we'd still be short in terms of mounting a serious challenge. Given that both players are unhappy for different reasons perhaps it might be prudent to cash in NOW before the chances to replace them fizzle out.

I'm not getting into numbers but if we do sell both then there should be enough funds to strengthen our woeful defence (GK, CD, CDM ) and maybe bring in one or two more attackers considering Sturridge and Ings aren't the most robust specimens. It's going to hopefully be a long season and we need proven quality alongside promise.

Trent Arnold and Gomez have stamped their marks but we have very little in reserve ready to step up.
It's probably too late now to paper over all the cracks but (and I know this is not FIFA 17) we should sell Coutinho and Sakho for whatever obscene amounts we can muster and bring in some quality. Easier said than done and we've been "linked" with just about everyone and his dog.

However, and this is purely my own wish list, I'd love us to bring in Pusilic, Jack Butland, Jonathon Tah, Brozovic and Benzema. I expect some opposition to my choices but, as it's all just fantasy football, I don't really mind!


1.) 26 Aug 2017 15:29:37
We need to stay away from Benzema. Expensive, pushing 30 and trouble.

2.) 26 Aug 2017 16:06:54
Benzema is trouble.

3.) 26 Aug 2017 18:12:13
Wouldnt touch benzema with a page out the s*n but think the actual spine of the team needs a lot of work.

4.) 26 Aug 2017 20:34:28
We have at least two good players for every position and I think center back is only thing we really need an upgrade on except maybe cover for mane and salah or a Coutinho replacement. For me it's VVD and nothing else (personally been on an Ox could be good for us tirade for a few days but wouldn't be too aggrieved if he doesn't come) .



11 Aug 2017 21:40:36
Re Coutinho; Why are we so surprised that things have got so messy?
If a Real/ Barca/ PSG/ City or Chelsea dangle their bags of gold in front of a young man's face and promise him the World which North West England can't aspire to . well, what would you do?
Every player has an agent and every agent has a vested interest in making deals regardless. kerching!
Most players want siverware and success but they're taught to cash-in as well so massive moneybags clubs have a monopoly on anything remotely resembling talent.
Agents are sucking this concept dry and anything remotely resembling talent is exploited to the max.
Let Coutinho go to Barcelona by all means but Β£110m will only compensate if we spend it well.


1.) 11 Aug 2017 21:59:11
ANFIELDPETE is right, the government and local council must spend billions to make the NW of England a cultural hotspot so the players enjoy being here, then the club must pay more than we can afford! He is right though Liverpool as a city and with our wages and current clubs approach to winning trophies etc we can't compete with the top clubs.

2.) 11 Aug 2017 22:55:00
Man City on the French Riviera now is it?



14 Jun 2017 08:41:10
Just a quick question regarding Dominic Solanke and the fact that his transfer fee is to be set by a tribunal. Will his performances at the U-20's have ballooned his value and, if so, will this be significant enough to put us off?
It's probably a naΓ―ve point but my concern is that we score another own-goal in the transfer market.


{Ed002's Note - If Liverpool wish to avaoid another tribunal then they need to talk with Chelsea and agree a fee.}

1.) 14 Jun 2017 19:21:08
In your opinion Ed002, what would be the best thing to do? Go tribunal or agree fee with Chelsea directly? Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - After what happened last time to Liverpool they should at least talk with Chelsea about a fee.}

2.) 15 Jun 2017 10:58:38
Not sure if it is true or not, but I have read online that the fee can't exceed 3m at a tribunal as he was on less than 25k a week at Chelsea.

Could of just been paper talk though I guess.



16 Apr 2017 16:05:32
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Lucas Leiva is an essential part of our squad and he proved it again today without being spectacular.
Our defence was resillient and the Matip-Loveren partnership is becoming special, Mignolet is hitting form and we are dealing better with set-pieces.
I was impressed with Origi and Can but I'd just give the M. O. M. to Firminho for his work-rate and goal.
A win for Chelsea at Mold Trafford should make life more comfortable but 5 more wins for us and we'll be guaranteed top 4!


1.) 16 Apr 2017 19:11:39
I'm not so sure about this. Lucas did do well but he did make a few mistakes today especially conceding silly free kicks against a team that you don't want to concede against. Reading your point again though, you mention essentials squad player so perhaps you're right there. Performance wise, he was okay.

2.) 16 Apr 2017 19:49:26
Its only one clean sheet in last ten games i think so let's not get ahead of ourselves

Lucas a very important squad player though i hope we don't sell him.

Fabinho is going to be an inspired and much-needed signing. It's a position we've been crying out for since Mascherano/ Alonso. How can anyone judge the lad on pre-season?
Let's talk in twelve months.

Dick van Dyke and Hedy Lamar for Coutinho? Seems like good business given Phil's departure is pretty certain. Van Dijk has to be an improvement on what we've got and Lemar is a regular for France (possibly the best national side in the World) . A top keeper would be great but I'd love us to get a Kante/ Matic type DM to protect our defence. In reality, it's likely that we won't strengthen at all apart from Virgil.

If someone pays Β£30m for Daniel Sturridge I'd like a private word with them. I've got an old BMW I'd love to get rid of.
Looks nice and when it works it purrs like a dream but It's expensive to run and completely unreliable.

I've never seen this Tierney lad play so I'm not writing him off. A word of caution though, Scotland has been a dire league for years and is almost wrapped up already by a Club which has been royally hammered in Europe. In short, looking good in Scotland might not be much of a testimonial and just because some big clubs are monitoring him says very little. Everyone's after decent defenders and any player showing even a little promise will invite a bidding-war.
I'd stick with a very impressive Milner with Gomez, Klavan and Moreno as back-up till the end of the season. I stand to be corrected on Tierney if it happens but I think we're too well equipped in the LB department to be panic-buying until at least the end of the season.

28 Oct 2016 19:56:34
Well, if that means Moreno plays then we can expect nervous defending, maybe a penalty or two and a massive boost to Palace's attackers. I'd rather take a punt on Klavan at LB even though he hasn't played there much.

Give the lad a chance, mate. His home debut was extremely good (I've not seen crosses put in like that from a FB for a while) .
It's not his fault that we've completely f? @::ed up this transfer-window. By now we should have sorted out our entire defence (it's a talking-point every week on Football Focus, MOTD etc. just how crap our defending is and this is not a recent phenomenon)!
Robertson is a steal at Β£10m but was he the best or entire solution?
Is the Coutinho saga or the Virgil Van Dyke debacle or the Naby Keita pantomime doing us any favours?

I've just posted on the Leicester page how I feel (I'm sure they appreciate it! )
Most people could predict that they would lose their best players after winning the Premier League (Vardy excepted) and losing Kante has been massive to them. We all knew they wouldn't win the League again but they're still in the Champions League going into March and they are still the Champions of England!
Claudio Ranieri is one of the best football managers around and should never have been sacked from Chelsea when he was.
Leicester City are a Championship Club at best and have just proved that they have a Division 2 mentality!
Their next manager will be in the mould of Warnock, Allardyce or Holloway so I expect them to spend the rest of the season scrapping for survival and the TV money but, without Ranieri, they'll be travelling to Walsall and Rochdale on a cold night before long instead of the European nights out their fans relish.

Some of what you say is a bit off the mark my friend, in my opinion.
We haven't proven we can "grind out results" just by nicking an injury-time winner against a very mediocre Everton and how on earth was Sicknote Sturridge M. O. M.?
Also, t hose critics who say we need to score X because we'll concede Y are generally alluding to a widely accepted principal that our defence is our potential downfall.
You surely can't deny that, without Matip, Gomez, Sakho and a specialist LB we lack a quality and presence that our makeshift defenders have been mostly getting away with so far but . well, square pegs!
If we lose Sakho (probably) I'll be disappointed and frustrated because he's a class CB. I like Klavan as a steady defender when we don't have to defend too much and Milner likewise. Both are great when we're attacking but our defensive frailties are down to square pegs in round holes! And don't get me started on goalkeepers!

We voted, like the citizens of the USA, for change. It's pathetic how the Remainers and Clintonites can't accept the democratic processes and the reasons why both votes went as they did.
2016 has been absolutely brilliant!
