Eds, i remember on the sharkopod that you said Barcelona would look to get a deal done before the end of november as one of the key instigators of the deal would no longer be involved and this would lead to them viewing other targets. In this situation, is it possible we could see coutinho stay a bit longer in a de gea to real madrid scenario? Or would he definately try and force a move to another team like psg, madrid, maybe even juventus to replace dybala?

Anonymous Woolback

{Ed002's Note - Yes, we are now beyond the end of November and they will be considering their options. It is possible that Coutinho could move in January or the Summer but be clear he wants out. Coutinho is not of interest to Juventus and he is not first choice for Real Madrid. PSG might retain and interest but it is Barcelona who want him and that is where the player wants to go.}

Up to Barcelona to make us an acceptable offer. The ball is in their court. 🤝.

2.) 05 Dec 2017 03:05:38
Barca will once again resort to underhand tactics to get Coutinho cheap. We trust Henry to duke it out with them.



10 Apr 2017 20:29:48
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.

12.) 12 Apr 2017 09:17:18
Haha that's good one mingo.



20 May 2016 17:56:44
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.

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.

Thrilled with the draw, should be a cracking tie! Not counting our chickens just yet because Bayern are an experienced side with a handful of world class players who can deal damage.

I think we can all tell this Bayern side is not what it once was, i’d just like to ask the eds and people who know the Bundesliga what went wrong? In 2013 they looked set for a period of domination, as did all of German football. But all that i can see is stagnation and regression.

Was it Pep? Players like Muller, Gotze and Badstuber not realising their potential? Players not being replaced properly? Poor attitude, overated players replacing true legends? Or is it all just an overreaction and we should definitely be worried?

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 17 Dec 2018 15:56:22
Bayern are an ageing team. I'm more than happy with the draw.

2.) 17 Dec 2018 16:15:00
While it's always the players who do the business on the field, it's always the management upstairs that is in control of a club's overall success and future. So that's where I would look. To this day, I am surprised they let Pep go so easily, but then maybe he didn't want to stick around and ManC's petrodollars were too strong an attraction. In the last decade or so I have gotten the impression that club directors do seem to meddle in team affairs (going by stuff that appears in the media on and off) .

3.) 17 Dec 2018 17:31:45
I think lack of CL trophy was the decision to part with Pep. Its just my opinion.

4.) 17 Dec 2018 18:34:48
Sorry but how are Bayern an ageing team? Alaba, Neuer, Kimmich, Sule, Conan, Tolisso, Goretzka are all either young or in their prime. Lewandawski is absolutely top notch.

It’s a tie we can win but I don’t like the arrogance or disrespect coming from some people.

5.) 17 Dec 2018 19:10:20
Alaba, Neuer, Kimmich and Lewandowski are all top class sure. But correct me if i’m wrong, the rest are injury prone and flatter to deceive? I don’t watch a lot of Bundesliga admittedly but it doesn’t feel like the professional, all conquering powerhouse of years gone by. Their midfield and central defence looks very hollow these days, Rodriguez and Tolisso? Ribery and Robben STILL being the main men? Come on something has gone wrong there, we thought they were going to be the team to dominate Europe for years to come but instead it was Madrid. The regression in quality of the Bundesliga as a whole has also shocked me massively.

6.) 17 Dec 2018 19:43:17
To be fair to pep the city job would be attractive to any manager, unlimited money, a great set up, already great team, a less than great history, he has the opportunity to really smash records and go down in their history at the very least. The only downside would be living in Manchester ;)

7.) 17 Dec 2018 19:55:49
Bayern are no longer who they were and this has been the case since 2013 when the legendary Jupp Heynekes took a world class team to the treble (beating Klopp's BVB in a memorable CL final) . That team would later be made worse by the so called "best manager of all time" Pep Guardiola. Ancelotti came in and got sacked and the fact that it took Heynekes to come out of retirement, to give them back their dignity last season, tells you all you need to know about who they have become. Did I also mention they are 5-7 points back of BVB this season with the average and inexperienced Niko Kovac as manager?

All that said, Bayern are still a handful esp. at their home ground so we have to be ready for them BUT IMO, there is absolutely nothing to be overly scared of.



25 Nov 2018 03:56:05
I honestly thought that was one of our most positive performances all season. First half was not great but the front 3 showed signs of getting back to the standard we know they can play at. In previous years we would of panicked after getting no early goals and the game would finish 0-0. We may also have conceded 2 late goals after Henderson being sent off, but instead kept control of the game and scored another.

Very disappointed in Henderson but klopp should have taken him off sooner. No doubt the knee jerkers will be out in force calling for his head. If nothing else it means Fabinho can play against Everton and prove Ed025 wrong in the best way possible. About time we got to see what a midfield of Keita, Fabinho and Shaqiri can bring to the table.

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 25 Nov 2018 08:01:09
Totally agree. Hendo was brilliant yesterday and it was Klopps fault he got sent off yesterday not his.

2.) 25 Nov 2018 09:22:54
JK - the sub is part of the problem, if you like. But don't you think the skipper should take some responsibility himself? Show some leadership maybe?

3.) 25 Nov 2018 09:33:33
I too am a big fan of Hendo but to say it was Klopp’s fault that he was sent off is stretching loyalty to the player way too far. Hendo is experienced enough to know when he has to be very careful with his tackles. I was desparate to find a reason to rant at that fat, useless, incompetent travesty of a referee for the sending off but it was Hendo’s own fault.

4.) 25 Nov 2018 10:47:38
First booking Moss got wrong, Henderson’s shirt was being pulled first which meant the Watford player got ahead of him so Hendo grabbed him back. The Honey Monster cocks up again, at least this time it didn’t cost us and his biggest mistake in the game was failing to award Watford a penalty when Robbo rashly swung and connected with their lads shin. Similar to the Chelsea pen where another idiot was in charge, they are pre-judging challenges based on the players involved (Hazard) rather than what happens. Later in that game and because the ref failed to give the first obvious pen, Hazard then dives trying to win one (I suppose he thought “well if the ref is so bad he missed a blatant one if I dive he might give it”. We need a whole new generation coming through to replace these ageing incompetent refs, BB get your skates on buddy! )

5.) 25 Nov 2018 16:21:31
the first yellow card was well deserved as he had to make the foul to avoid the counter-attack, but the second yellow was for a shoulder push where Watford was not even having a clear chance of a counter. Hendos reaction was surprising as he knew that he was getting his marching order and just made the way toward the tunnel even before the red came out. the second yellow could be for the combinations of fouls and I saw Hendo having an argument with the ref just before the second yellow. But I am not disappointed with Hendo even for a second. He did what he had to do. he was the midfield general and was one of the best players on the pitch for me.
I was counting how many times he stopped the attack as I wanted my son to learn that position.

6.) 25 Nov 2018 17:30:04
I think JK gave sarcastic reply.

05 Sep 2018 17:22:44
Regardless of whether the Rabiot news regarding actual contact with the player is true, are there any legs to this rumour in the sense that we are looking to make space for another midfielder in the squad? Would seem strange to chase another holding midfielder when we already have our captain and a new signing who hasn’t kicked a ball yet in that position.

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 05 Sep 2018 17:56:48
Yor right mate wouldn't make any sense at all going the amount of CMs we have and Lallana Fabinho can't even get in the squad. Ed sais no contact tgat he is aware of so for me its a non starter.

2.) 05 Sep 2018 18:02:25
Well assuming the rumours are true he wouldn’t be joining until next summer anyway. I would expect Lallana to move on next summer and possibly Wijnaldum too. Milner will be 33 and can’t keep going forever and there are no guarantees that the Ox comes back the player he was before his horrible injury.

3.) 05 Sep 2018 18:40:16
Kramer why wil Wijnaldum move on, he is very much first choice atm. We also have Henderson Kieta Fab etc. You do have a case in Milner but he is certainly our best Mid at the minute imo.

It just doesn't make sense with Rabiot who Barcelona are interested in.

4.) 05 Sep 2018 19:45:09
Robomilner has years left in him 😂.

5.) 05 Sep 2018 21:34:55
Am I the only one who could Milner moving to Leeds if they get promoted next summer? I'm not 100% sure but doesn't his contract expire this summer?

6.) 06 Sep 2018 00:50:50
Milner's 32, Lallana's always injured, not sure whether there's any truth to this rumour or not but I'm sure we could create space for him. Afterall, we were pursuing Fekir in the summmer, and if he'd have signed, he'd have been playing in midfield.

7.) 06 Sep 2018 04:29:49
I cannot see Klopp letting both Milner and Lallana go next summer at the same time. It will likely be Lallana moving on for a small fee while Milner gets a short term contract extension. OX will be back next season and Curtis Jones will be looking for game time as well. So where does Rabiot fit in? Gini is not leaving so Rabiot is a luxury signing than a necessity. I can see Klopp drop any residual interest once Barcelona or other interested parties offer the player insane signing on fees and wages that we would be unable to compete with.

8.) 06 Sep 2018 05:40:05
Previously, I disagreed with this one idea/ suggestion. Now, with the good options the club has in midfield currently, I think it's the best time to start blending in the youngsters instead of buying.

9.) 06 Sep 2018 09:34:44
Two of Lallana, Millner and Gini (based on performances this season) would be expecte to leave end of season.

Think they are trying to get him to sign pre contract although I have no idea how good he is.

I wish we had ox for this season. He wouldve gone out and established himself as a regular started. Shame.

10.) 06 Sep 2018 09:57:17
we will probably sell grujic, ejaria, Milner and lallana next year and there you go enough space for Rabbiot. If he really wants to come we should make it happen. Otherwise there is no need as we have enough players.

11.) 06 Sep 2018 10:07:19
You're all forgetting that Wijnaldum was close to leaving this summer. Or there was at least talk of it. I don't know if it was from his side or the club's but I wouldn't be surprised if the issue comes up again next summer; especially if Fabinho solidifies his hold on the #6 position, as hoped, later in the season.

12.) 06 Sep 2018 18:22:50
It's a squad game these days and if the rumors are true then I would love Rabbiot for next season. I expect either Milner, Wiji or Lallana (or 2 out of 3) to leave next summer which leaves room for Rabbiot. Also, Klopp rotates a lot and the boys will get chances so for me personally, I would love Rabbiot.



01 Sep 2018 18:26:52
Anyone else just dreading the banging on from the media and opposition fans for the next week or so?

I think any sensible football fan could of told you that at some point early on in the season, alisson would make a mistake. Foreign keepers will have trouble adjusting, especially top ones who are good with their feet. I have absolute confidence that over time and after a bit of telling off, alisson will begin to grasp the do’s and don’ts of the english game better.

I remember De Gea doing it, i remember Lloris doing it, i remember Courtois doing it when he came back from Spain, and i’m fairly certain there have been hairy moments for Ederson as well. Foreign sweeper keepers always take time to adapt.

You’d have to be blind to not notice how good Alisson has been so far, how many difficult situations he has made easy and how much confidence he gives to the back line. You’d also have to be totally blind not to notice that the goal was a product of multiple errors; milners pass to van dijk was dangerous, van dijks pass to alisson was woeful and put him under pressure immediately, pressure i think he was unwilling to succumb to as i think he feels confidence in himself makes him play his best football. I fully expect this to be no more than a tiny kink in Alissons game and it will be entirely ironed out in a few weeks time; average players ignore their mistakes and let lack of confidence get to them, top players use their mistakes to drive forward their improvement as players, which is what i fully expect Alisson to do.

He'll learn from it. It was going to happen eventually. He got away with it in the last two games. I'm just glad he did it when we were 2-0 up so it didn't affect the result.

3.) 01 Sep 2018 19:25:48
If you take chances like he does you are bound to get caught out eventually he just needs to tighten up his decision making. In terms of making saves and coming to collect he looks really good.

4.) 01 Sep 2018 19:26:43
From his post match quotes, It's definitely not going to dent alissons confidence, and hopefully he'll learn something from it.

5.) 01 Sep 2018 19:35:09
What I liked was when the next 2 opportunities came to pick the ball up in hands, he still controlled it with feet and fizzed a pass out straight to a teammate. He's clearly unflappable and doesn't dwell on mistakes. He'll be miffed, obviously, but no harm was done really and a lesson or two will hopefully be learnt. I don't really watch Italian football, so have no idea of the time keepers are usually afforded, but in the Prem you don't get time to ponder. He'll set attacks up, be able to play it cool and sweep up as usual, there are just times you simply need to lump it.

6.) 01 Sep 2018 19:41:37
I'm not worried about it at all. The media will always find something to over report and make a bigger issue than it really is.

Players make mistakes. I’d argue Salah’s 2 big mistakes were just as bad.

8.) 01 Sep 2018 21:24:32
I agree Bobby, I think Salah (the player not the poster) made a much bigger mistake by not putting away that opportunity early on.

9.) 01 Sep 2018 22:33:27
Exactly Stone and at 2-0 he just had to square it to Bobby for a tap in but was too greedy.

10.) 01 Sep 2018 22:40:29
OP, who gives a hoot about what opposing fans (many of who actually wish they had some of the players we have) have to say about us? I don't know and I don't care, end of story. As for Allison, we all knew this would happen so we all just be glad the mistake happened during a win so he can learn from it w/ o any damage to the cause. There are a lot more serious things that concern me about us now (no shots on target in the last two second halves of games, no chances created, inability to generate any energy, fluidity and direction in the second half of the past two games) than Alisson's mistake. I do agree that the media will be blowing this up for the next 10 days.

11.) 02 Sep 2018 07:44:23
Ederson did it against us last season and Salah lobbed him from 40 yards to score.

I find it very hard to feel sorry for someone who let down all his teammates and tens of millions of fans around the world, on two occassions in the clubs biggest game in a decade, all for a loss of concentration that you find it hard to believe a sunday league player would make. I also find it hard to be sympathetic given that after said mistake, instead of offering to give up his holiday to train all summer and reclaim some dignity (as many of our players have offered to do over the past few years despite not cocking up) he chose to go on holiday without shame and absolutely blitz his social media. And then on top of all that, when we sign a world class player in his position, which all things considered was warranted, he decides to complain about it in public to the press.

I’m not saying i have any particular distain for the guy, i wish him well, but he has left like a spoilt brat and i will not miss him anymore than i did Enrique, Johnson or Balotelli. Mignolet will not get a move he has probably been looking towards for a much longer period of time and still has handled it with more grace than Karius has.

Think it speaks for the measure of the man that he pushed so hard to go to Madrid, has been there 5 years and can’t even be arsed to learn the language, don’t know what he expected to be honest.

Difference being that Fekir has let it be known for a while he willleave, has told the club well in advance and will almost certainly leave with more dignity than any of the others, he won’t have to go on strike or fake injuries to move.

Not to be cheeky Macca, but where is the right back? It’s one of the few holes left to plug.

I don’t watch enough of burnley to know but I prefer the sound of Mee much more than Tarkowski, but id take either of them and put trust in them to grow and iron out their deficiencies.

Butland still makes no sense to me for what he will cost, if we really are after a backup keeper it should be somebody with more experience who will cost little. Call me a romantic but Buffon joining us, even to just be backup, would give me shivers, but Reina would be good as well.

Ceballos seems to have been covered by the Ed’s endlessly and would be a smart buy.

Fekir and Dembele would leave us all in dreamland, I’m not fussed if dembele would only be a loan he has so much talent.

As for the speculation that this all means Salah is leaving, personally any player can leave if they so wish. Say what you like about Suarez, Coutinho, torres or mascherano, but at least they all stayed for a few years before controversially departing. If Salah honestly wants a move after one bloody season, and is incapable to see what we are building here, then sod him. As great as he is I see him as a product of the system, and we could almost certainly find somebody to do a decent job in his stead. This is all hypothetical of course as I don’t think he will leave this summer.

All valid points but he isn’t first choice; he isn’t going to be perfect. Virgil Van Dijk’s are hard to come by, and even harder to find one willing to sit on the bench. The silly interviews are the managers responsibility to deal with.

I agree. Mistakes are a part of playing in defence i’m afraid. He has one in him but people always choose to focus on his occasional ‘errors’ as opposed to his excellent performances the rest of the time. Champions League final anyone?

I don’t remember saying debate wasn’t welcome RedWolf? I was simply stating that calling him a championship quality player is unfair and untrue. Also i do not believe you should sign players just to fill a quota (although quotas do need filling by their nature) i do genuinely think he is good enough to play for us. I’m not really sure what you’re getting at, some of your posts are beginning to baffle me.

He’s the captain of a mid-table premier league team who have just been promoted and, all things considered, been very good. Coady has performed very well, he’s comfortable with the ball at his feet and is a leader. I’m sure he’d jump at the chance to join liverpool, i don’t see how he is a championship player and why it is such a bad idea?

Would make sense to in my opinion, another factor to take into consideration is the need to fill the english quota after the possible departures of Clyne, Milner, Lallana and Sturridge.
