Just read that coutinho rejected the requests of the coaches to stay at home, so he could make the bench for the game on saturday, then to come off the bench and score. This is the exact attitude and type of player we need here at liverpool, hats off to him.

Couts has to stay, build our team around him, need another Mane .

2.) 11 Apr 2017 00:53:45
What would you do with another Mane if you've built your team around Coutinho?

3.) 11 Apr 2017 02:02:09
Coutinho was always needee to stay. He didn't need to do anything like that to justify it.

Hes our boy. Show him the love and he will give you the heart.

4.) 11 Apr 2017 03:24:35
build another mane and mane running around firmino!? and then someone can get their dream of firmino in central midfield realised.! :p.

5.) 11 Apr 2017 03:52:08
probably the best £8.5m the club has ever spent.

6.) 11 Apr 2017 06:07:23
Sure the best 8.5 we ever spent was on ings, that free transfer.

7.) 11 Apr 2017 08:25:26
support coutinho zimbo, as Mane has done.

8.) 11 Apr 2017 15:26:17
Don't worry I'd happily take another Mane! Just not sure if we'll get someone of his level to join with no obvious starting spot. Think hopefully Coutinho, Firmino and Mane will be our starting lineup and wouldn't want to see that changed myself.

9.) 11 Apr 2017 15:41:46
kudos couts, however if and when he is not in form let's remember this instead of wanting him out.

10.) 11 Apr 2017 21:18:01
The problem with football these days is that the Doctors think they pick the team. Hats off to Coutinho for his positive attitude and nonsense to all that red zone, orange zone, green zone crap.

11.) 12 Apr 2017 01:28:00
He must be mad. If someone offered me the day off id take 2.

Haha that's good one mingo.

From what i can work out the players we are interested in are:


I have never seen any of those players play but i guess any addition at goalkeeper and left back is welcome. Zielinski and silva seem slightly unneccasary unles we get rid of a lot of players. Hector is apparently more defensive minded which is exactly what we need. I was still hoping for perhaps a holding mid to push Can and Henderson more but maybe Grujic is that player. However i fail to see the point of chilwell as he is just another joe gomez surely? And personally i like joe gomez so i'd much rather see him or smith given a chance.

The outs that everybody can virtually agree on are:

And all the academy players who will be moving on.

If all that happens i'd consider it a very successful summer and cannot wait for next season with a squad of klopps own players.

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 20 May 2016 18:09:47
Lallana will stay, Klopp said as much the other day. I can't see Milner moving on either on his wages and the sort of club he'd want to go to.

2.) 20 May 2016 18:54:38
Joe Gomez is a cb not a lb Rodgers just stuck him there like he did Flanagan. I really like Gomez he's got a lot of promise, good with the ball at his feet, is comfortable with a challenge and not bad in the air. just hope he comes back from injury well.

3.) 20 May 2016 18:54:50
Milner's leading our assists table. I'd keep him on the condition that he's usually played on the right of midfield rather than in the middle.

4.) 20 May 2016 19:07:00
AW, Migs not be moving, neither will Milner. Lallana, I think, may make way for Goetze, but not necessarily. I think illori will move on too.

5.) 20 May 2016 19:53:12
Aren't we also interested/ linked with another midfielder? Dhroud is it?

6.) 20 May 2016 19:58:53
Perhaps Goetze will replace Coutinho? Barcelona have been looking recently and something was said earlier in the year, about him wanting to move on if there is no champions league football at Liverpool.

It wouldn't surprise me if a decent offer came in for him at least. We're not in a position where we can reject the advances of clubs like Barcelona, we haven't got the finances and we don't have any European competition next season.

One thing is for sure, Coutinho will not sell cheap, so if he does leave we'll at least get a tidy sum for him.

7.) 20 May 2016 20:44:40
I don't think Goetze and Coutinho are related at all. I would aso be not so sure either of Hector or Silva are coming in. While Liverpool has scouted both players, we have not made any effort to move for them, and are concentrating on bringing in Zielinski, Chilwell, Karius and seemingly Goetze.

8.) 20 May 2016 21:36:46
Mignolet has a 5yr contract.
He will not be leaving unless some fool offers us more than his contract is worth.

9.) 20 May 2016 22:09:24
im sure whoever klopp buys will be the right player for the team, he knows what he needs to do after this season so i will put my faith in him to get it right instead of trying to second guess him, if he brings these players in then he needs them yes we have other players in the team already but he might not see a future for them because unlike us he sees them every day and knows there weaknesess, like lallana for instance he is a good player but there's hardley any end product from him and i don't think he is at the right standard for us maybe Zielinski will have a better end product because these 2 are very a like, also the players he is buying he is getting them cheap not like BR who over spent on players, its so refreshing that he is getting players this cheap for a change,

10.) 20 May 2016 23:47:07
Great insight despite having never seen any of them play.

11.) 21 May 2016 01:11:06
I don't agree Lallana and Milner should go. 2 of our most consistent performers under Klopp. Allen could do a job as a squad player. Moreno - has still (some) time to learn how to defend. Not sure he will though!

12.) 21 May 2016 07:00:34
AndyM, lalana should go if Gotze replace him. Milner can go if we get Zielinski.

13.) 21 May 2016 14:52:38
Andym that mean no one significant leaving and based on that no one coming in. Simple tranfer window.

14.) 22 May 2016 00:45:17
Skrtel, Benteke and Allen, if he moves, all significant 'Outs'. I don't see CM as a priority for strengthening. Matip and Grujic both significant 'Ins' already done. A GK and Lb needed (Lb whether Moreno stays or goes) . I hope for a lot from Ings next season.



21 Mar 2016 20:45:32
Everything points to skrtel being sold. Ilori and wisdom likely to follow in all honesty. He won't even play ilori ahead of lucas at centre back.

Managing with a iron fist. What the squad needs. Given a chance. Not good enough you're gone.



24 Feb 2016 23:14:17
Ed002, do you have any info on these supposed claims that sturridge may want to leave?

Various people seem to think there's something in it and i believe you have said in the past he could leave, unless i am mistaken.

Anonymous Woolback

{Ed002's Note - I am pretty sure he doesn't want to leave. He will want to prove himself to be fit and be a regular starter.}

1.) 25 Feb 2016 08:09:37
I genuinely thought mountains were being made out of molehills by this entire situation. People were looking for updates when there was no update to give. I'm fairly certain Klopp came out at one stage during it and said studge needs a 'pre season' of sorts before he could play which made sense in my mind because it was breaking the perpetual cycle of injury > recover > thrown back in straight away > inevitable break down
Only time will tell if the cycle has been broken so fingers crossed.

{Ed002's Note - Sturridge was, quite correctly, eased back in. If he picks up an injury now because too much is being asked too soon then the finger will point directly at the coaching staff.}

2.) 25 Feb 2016 08:18:21
I agree it's a difficult balancing act for Klopp and co. Play him too much and he will most certainly break down again, don't play him enough and you'll have certain sections of the media/ supporters blasting management for not playing our best player and will come out with ridiculous rumours and theories. Common sense rarely prevails!

3.) 25 Feb 2016 11:50:19
Eds and Reds would I be right in saying that the majority of his injuries have come in training rather than a competitive match? Not sure where I'm going with this, but perhaps he needs the Ledley King treatment?

4.) 25 Feb 2016 12:16:24
I'll take the Ed's word on this, paper talk is generally made sensationalism. With any luck he can put this all behind him, Studge is a top class finisher and a tremendous player, so I am glad to see him back.



03 Nov 2015 20:07:22
According to someone i know who claimed he has an itk inside liverpool, liverpool will be looking to offload sturridge, allen, enrique and lovren in january as they have been identified as the weak links in the squad, for various reasons.

Anybody else heard anything like this?

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 03 Nov 2015 20:39:31
Not heard it but all make complete sense.

Ed002 has also been aluding to sturridge leaving for the past couple of months.

Wouldn't be worried about any of them going to be honest.

Sturridge needs Italy or Spain where he might get away with having to be so fit and therefore reduce injuries.

2.) 03 Nov 2015 20:57:19
Really don't see Sturridge going in Jan unless there is a replacement lined up.

3.) 03 Nov 2015 22:08:31
Can't see studge going as long as Ings is out injured.

4.) 03 Nov 2015 22:55:41
Can not see Sturridge going in January. From what my guy tells me, Klopp wants everything possible done to keep him fit for a sustained period of time.

5.) 04 Nov 2015 00:28:34
Don't get all this cool calmness about the possibility of studge leaving. yes I fully understand he is having a terrible rub of injuries. But for God sake the lad is still young and overcome this, and is one of the best strikers in the prem league. He really does get the love from our supporters I feel. just my opinion.

6.) 04 Nov 2015 01:26:42
We'd be lucky to get ten million for him, rather keep him for that, unless klopp sees firmino as the cover for benteke until Ings is back.

7.) 04 Nov 2015 04:10:57
LOL we have some funny fans and posters! Sturridge is quality. Yes he picks up injuries. Shall we also sell Henderson? Gomez? Yes. I understand he gets injured more frequently than others but this is not good. We shouldn't treat people this way.

A lot of people stuck with Suarez and his whole racism debacle. Then when he bit people a lot of people still wanted to keep him.

Be a ****er that's fine. get injured and we don't want you.

Nice one.

8.) 04 Nov 2015 09:37:55
Who is going to sign sturridge when he hasn't even played half a season over the last two?

9.) 04 Nov 2015 12:42:34
Do Man City say the same about Aguero?

Yes, he's more injury prone than Darren Anderton (reference for the oldies there! ), but he's class when he's available and we need all the class we've got.

10.) 04 Nov 2015 23:32:56
Seriously? Who at this point in time would splash the cash on Sturridge? Way too much of a risk for any buying club!

11.) 06 Nov 2015 07:55:56
eds I disagree with your comment that SG has not been good enough for years. He was pivotal in our title challenge in the deeper role!

{Ed001's Note - in some respects yes, but his lack of defensive awareness was a huge part of the reason we shipped so many goals and failed to win it.}

On the subject of matip, he may not be perfect, but he is far better than anything we have had for a while. I totally get what you say ed001 that the more we watch him the worse he seems, i actually feel it might be somewhat deteriorating confidence. When he joined initially he was great, as time has gone on and he has played more with our other shambolic defenders and goalies, he has got worse. I feel that once robertson and karius have finally settled in and our starting games, and we hopefully get another more competent centre back, we will see him in great form.

Anonymous Woolback

{Ed001's Note - he wasn't great though, he wasn't doing any defending initially.}

1.) 10 Sep 2017 16:12:16
So here we are discussing who is the least bad Centre Back in the club, that in itself is shocking.

2.) 10 Sep 2017 16:53:47
It's not all about who makes mistakes. Sometimes you just have to say the opposition were very very good. It hurts I know but is true.

{Ed025's Note - fair play to you mate..

3.) 10 Sep 2017 17:14:46
Yes our defending is shocking and your all calling for gomez to be given the chance as a centerback but your all missing a small but vital point, all our centerback players in our senior squad are right sided center backs except klavan so although this is a small thing its important for example if you watch Lovren he always tackles with his right leg predominately when attacked on his left which is the easiet way to give away free kicks and penalties which we have seen him do and it could explain a small bit why he does not help the left back out much and leaves it to Gini and Can mostly.

4.) 10 Sep 2017 21:36:12
Insane, had VVD come in, he would still be a right footer playing on the left side of the CB position so not much would have changed.

5.) 11 Sep 2017 11:34:11
City clicked big time yesterday and I'm not sure we'd have beaten them to be fair. As much as we got through Otamendi down their left, they exposed our defence left, right and centre.

Done and dusted now - Seville Wednesday night.



30 Aug 2017 09:34:49
I can understand the concern that people have over oxlade chamberlain. Myself included. But if nothing else, the lad has turned down the current champions, with the offer of silly wages and the chance to stay in london, to come to us. We are now in a position where players such as keita, van dijk, and chamberlain are turning down teams because they WANT to join us.

Okay he hasn't shown much desire at arsenal recently but we don't know exactly what is going on inside of that club. In all honesty the players there look somewhat depressed and its no surprise he wants to jump ship. In terms of quality he has been a lot better over the last season than he used to be, still a lot of room for improvement. While i don't think klopp is the messiah, he has definately improved all the players, maybe except for lovren, in some way. All the players are growing more confident and look like a tighter team all the time. I honestly don't think it is beyond oxlade chamberlain to come to liverpool and put the questions behind him. If he does become a liverpool player it is our job to support him and not get on his back too much.

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 30 Aug 2017 10:18:05
Who cares? Players have always wanted to come and play for us. there's been many players who have wanted to join who were Liverpool fans as kids. Who cares? Why do you care what he wants?
What you should be more interested in is if he improves us. You've had several seasons to watch him at arsenal surrounded by very good players. Did he impress you? We would improve aoc. He wouldn't improve us.

2.) 30 Aug 2017 10:29:10
The Lad turned down Chelsea coz he wants to play centrally! Why is he not looking at a midtable club for regular place?

3.) 30 Aug 2017 10:33:54
I disagree Al, I think he would be great addition to our squad.
I would wait a yr, rather than pay more than 25 million though.

4.) 30 Aug 2017 10:44:21
He wants to play in centre midfield and asked for guarantees over his starting position. He simply is not good enough to play centre midfield in a team competing for honours. That neither Chelsea or Arsenal would want to offer him that says enough. If he wants to be a centre midfielder, go and do it badly at mid table team, not here.

5.) 30 Aug 2017 10:53:18
The point being that a few years ago we were getting rejected by players like sigurdsson, sanchez and costa, now players are turning down the london clubs for an opportunity to join us.

Also, i don't know when milners contract ends, but i feel that oxlade chamberlain would be replacing milner in the role of a squad player.

6.) 30 Aug 2017 11:13:13
I like the Ox and I believe he would be great under Klopp.

7.) 30 Aug 2017 17:36:05
Wooly, you are missing the point. I don't care if a player rejects other teams to come to us. If said player is poor and adds nothing to lour team, him rejecting other clubs to come here, will not suddenly make him a good player. That is simply illogical.

If he wanted to be a CM and demanded these guarantees from Chels and Arse and they rejected it, that simply means they see him as inferior in the CM setup. Why should we accept his demands where as he would not even make the squad in CM at LFC? Why should accept that garbage that other teams rejected all cos "he really wants to come to us"? That is deluded thinking.

Milner like Ox, adds nothing to our midfield either and per Ed01, Klopp wants rid as well so again, why accept the crap that other teams reject?



29 Aug 2017 01:04:52
After a whirlwind 24 hours, i have a few questions for everyone and the eds.

1) If we are to go for keita, lemar and van dijk in the last few days, surely this means coutinho will be sold. I can't see where else the insane amount of money will come from. But on the other hand, we have not got a replacement central midfielder at present - he is arriving next summer in the form of keita. The money being talked about for lemar, a player who we really would want just to boost the squad, is insane. Is it worth it? The only reason i can see why we would offer £65 million for him is if we had an equally insane windfall coming from coutinho.

2) What does keita mean for Can? Is he a late replacement for coutinho? A direct replacement for Can? Personally with the way Can has been playing id just say well done you have earned your stripes you are one of the first names on the team sheet. Or is keita a long term replacement for henderson in the wake of his injury and poor form?

3) which of any of these hypothetical situations would people be gutted or excited by?

Anonymous Woolback

{Ed001's Note - 1. Yes. He is more than just a boost for the squad, he is expected to play regularly. It is nothing to do with windfalls from Couts, but all about what Klopp wants. The club are 100% behind Klopp, if he digs his heels in and says Couts is going nowhere, then Couts is going nowhere. However Klopp has had enough of Couts hence the move for Lemar.

2. He was not meant to be for either, he was meant to be an addition to strengthen the team. They will now have to look again in the summer, unless Can can be persuaded to sign a new deal during the season.}

1.) 29 Aug 2017 05:32:52
So basically Lemar is the replacement for Coutinho and Keita is seen as a squad booster for next season right?
And considering Klopp is not looking for a direct Origi replacement, he seems to have a lot of faith in Solanke, Ings and Sturridge.
I'm ok with that but we still look a little light in the middle even with lemar. Another long term injury to a first team CM and Milner will be starting week in week out in midfield.

{Ed001's Note - Lallana is back soon.}

2.) 29 Aug 2017 05:47:28
I'm pretty sure Keita is more than a 'squad booster'.

3.) 29 Aug 2017 05:52:23
Lallana is gone till December Ed001. I hope Grujic or Woodburn shine during his absence coz I'm not looking forward to Milner running our midfield (don't rate him in CM) at any point. Hendo, Can, Lemar, Grujic, Lallana, Gini is a good midfield squad but take two out with injuries from that list and I would start to get worried a little. No wonder Klopp wanted Keita too.

{Ed001's Note - December is not long mate, it is September before our next match.}

4.) 29 Aug 2017 06:08:29
Yeah but we will probably have played all our group stage games by then meaning two games a week on a regular basis and Klopp's high energy style means there is going to be some wear and tear in the squad at some point. Hopefully the pre season has made sure there is no repeat of the January fiasco where the team went to bits against the bottom clubs.

{Ed001's Note - and so it is the perfect time for him to return. I really do not see the problem, we can't just fill up our squad with players in case of injury. We have only so many squad spaces allowed and only so many players will stay happy. Most managers prefer smaller squads for good reason.}

5.) 29 Aug 2017 06:35:04
How many more signings do you want?

6.) 29 Aug 2017 09:37:40
You don't sign players just to cover 3 month long injuries. That is pointless.



30 Jul 2017 11:33:17
I don't see why everyone is so impatient about keita, if we can't get him so what, if he really wants the move we can get him next year, he isn't an absolute essential for me this season.

Coutinho, I would hope would be able to agree to an understanding of staying 1 more season, our first proper season back in the champions league for a while, I feel we will be in a much stronger position to let him leave in a seasons time, by the looks of things neymar will most likely stay and there will be no space for him at barcelona as it stands.

As for van dijk, I would hope we are able to get him but I wish he would stop messing around and just hand in a formal transfer request, he certainly isn't the only defender I would be buying and our lack of strengthening the back line is really frightening, klavan, lovren and clyne really are proven failures at liverpool and none of the other top teams have as weak options as them, and while mignolet has improved, every top team has a far more competent goalkeeper than him. that's my main convern for the new season.

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 30 Jul 2017 14:31:06
The squad is much stronger than last season. Salad, salanke, Robertson, gomez, studge, grucic, ings, a fully fit Henderson, mane, matip and Can (all missed too many games last season plus emerging talent TAA, Ejaria and wood burn. Yes we need a centre back but we don talk need to spend multi millions on players we don't want because the player should we'd do want are not available.

2.) 30 Jul 2017 15:41:50
Salad is great, very healthy too. lol.

2.) 26 Jun 2017 17:33:12
But yet ed 02, carragher and a host of other former players have said tapping up is rife and normal in the game, an ex city employee on sky said the very same thing, saying every deal has illegal elements, I'm not defending our behavior or excusing it, but going by people who work in the game every team is at it,

{Ed002's Note - They are making feeble excuses - Liverpool are FAR WORSE than any other side. Liverpool have been CAUGHT REPREATEDLY. All of Carraghers experience has been at Liverpool where an ex-captain admitted making ILLEGALK APPROCHES TO PLAYERS ON BEHALF OF THE CLUB. Liverpool have already had one ban IMPOSED THIS YEAR. They have since been caught again. They have been caught on two occasions telling LIES to the authorities. They SCREWED UP THE CAREER of a child. They asked the parents of the child to LIE. Why are you all dragging this out and EMBARRASING YOURSELVES and the club further. It is PITIFUL to read this nonsense. You are yet again making a lauging stock of yourselves. Yet again the board and owners have had to embarrass themselves and the club as they drag a trail of slime apologising to another side for illegally tapping up one of their players.}
