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.}

1.) 04 Dec 2017 19:56:00
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.

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.

TIR, you hit the nail on the head there mate!



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.

No mate, couldn't care less what other fans or press say, just keep winning that's all we need to do.

2.) 01 Sep 2018 19:01:55
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.

7.) 01 Sep 2018 20:37:03
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.



30 Aug 2018 18:15:38
Good draw for us, Napoli and PSG present a challenge and games we can get excited for. They both have a record of flopping or bottling it in the champions league, both sides will be far more afraid of us than we are of them. Will certainly be a good watch that's for sure.

Anonymous Woolback

Exactly my thoughts too, bring them on. They fancy a chance against us? let's go! I can't wait to see Neymars face WHEN we give them a good seeing to.

Overall I'm delighted with the group, it'll make it very interesting and I think we are more than capable.

3.) 30 Aug 2018 20:01:44
The goal here is to make it into the next round and with the group we have, we should be able to amass at least 10 points which gets you into the next round. If we don't screw up and take everyone seriously then we should be fine, IMO.

4.) 30 Aug 2018 21:41:59
well said Salah, I really think that we will top this group, and other teams and fans will look at Liverpool, and think that we are now the Real Deal .

5.) 31 Aug 2018 07:17:20
Indeed Happy, same here mate. I mean they should be looking at us as the real deal already but for some reason we're always looked past, people hear about the richest clubs and suddenly think they're the ones to win everything lol not when Liverpool is around! we'll have a great competition.

PSG have a great team we all know this but can their defence handle our attack? not a chance imo, we'll beat them home and away. The only game I'd be concerned about is Napoli away, the rest of the games we'll win and top the group.



28 May 2018 15:03:52
I’ve already posted about the final but I feel I still need more closure. I’m properly gutted still. I’m gutted that this club has bottled it on so many occasions over the last 12 years or so, but I’m not even sure what to make of those one. We didn’t have the squad depth, we didn’t have the experience, we didn’t have the current ballon do’r holder, we didn’t have the ability to bring an £85 million player off the bench.

It seems reasonable that we should of lost, but why does it hurt so much? I even predicted a 3-1 to Madrid before the game, so why do I find myself in a state of total numbness, disbelief and shock?

I feel this because I always said that if Madrid win, I at least want them to win convincingly. I wanted to come out of the game feeling we had been bested by the better team. I did not want to feel cheated, but that is exactly what I got. The injury to Salah, followed by the mistakes of Karius that cannot be attributed to anything other than unfortunate to have happened on the biggest stage of all, it just leaves me feeling like we didn’t even get a proper crack at it. I am still convinced Ramos knew what he was doing, and I am still convinced we would have won if Salah had stayed on the pitch. That’s why it really stings.

Egypt are taking Ramos to court seeking €1billion in compensation 😂 in the near impossible event they win the court battle, I hope we would have an open bus parade to celebrate 😂

Chin up AW. If you need something to smile about, just remember that the highlight of Man United, Arsenal and Spurs fans seasons was us only being the second best team in Europe 💪.

{Ed002's Note - You want to make Liverpool a laughing stock as well then?}

2.) 28 May 2018 16:05:43
I thought the laughing face made it obvious, but for clarity Ed002, it was just a joke. It is the banter page after all! What Ramos did was out of order, but the only way to answer it is to win the whole thing next season 👍.

{Ed002's Note - And you think the fourth best team in England can do that?}

3.) 28 May 2018 16:41:05
Ed 002, just to jog your memory, we were in the final 2 days ago so considering we got that far, why can’t we win it? This is yet another comment from you, along with all the others with the sole intention of getting a rise from the Liverpool fans, you’ve never got a positive opinion when it comes to liverpool.

4.) 28 May 2018 16:49:23

Edd 2 and myself certainly share some interesting points of view.

6.) 28 May 2018 16:23:29
Why not Ed2 the fourth best team were only 45 minutes away on Saturday.

{Ed002's Note - Well you have just answered it - Liverpool were not good enough to win and they didn't win. You know that. The Liverpool fans will always have an outpouring of "we was robbed" and whine about it for days every time the side lose. It is always someone else's fault, the corrupt authorities, whatever. It is embarrassing but the way it is.}

7.) 28 May 2018 16:28:32
Yes I do Ed002. It's the supporters job to believe in our players no matter what. Last I checked we all believed we COULD win it this year, a week ago.

With another season to strengthen and a full year of our new look defence getting more used to playing together, anything is possible. And if I or Anyone else doesn't believe that it CAN happen (not necessarily that it WILl), what is the point in any of this? Football, Liverpool, or even this site?

I'll always believe in reality, and the reality is that it is a possibility. It is a mantra that runs deeper than football. Without hopes and dreams, there is no point in living life in general.

An old friend of mine died of lung cancer despite never smoking and being as healthy as anyone I knew. I could never understand how he just got on with life like nothing was happening. Not much longer than a month before he died, he asked me a question; "Is the glass half full or half empty? " I said it was half full to which he replied; "No, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be"

The message I took from that, is that we are all in control of our emotions and it is up to us if we choose to let them consume us. Because somewhere in between the negative outlook and the positive outlook, is reality. It's best to live your life in that middle ground.

The positive outlook is to say we will win it next season. The negative outlook is to say we won't. The correct outlook is to accept that we can.

{Ed002's Note - You can have hopes and dreams and that is fine. But Liverpool were not good enough to win the Champions League, the Premier League, the FA Cup nor the League Cup - and that has been the way of it for years. The team played well under Klopp for much of the season but were still rather inconsistent which is down to naivety, the lack of a game plan, no plan B, and the amateurism of upsetting Buvac and seeing the chairman of the club send the wrong message to the players on the day of a European Cup final. If Liverpool had of won that one game we would not have had cries to sack the goalkeeping coach, the abuse of the goalkeeper, Salah whimpering like a prepubescent schoolgirl nor the desire of the fans to replace pretty much the whole side - ironically excluding the player who has had his agent hawking him around the "big clubs" in Spain.

Liverpool have been moving in the right direction but they must still address off field issues and must give Keita a significant talking to and not put any arm around his shoulder to get the monkey off his back about being a complete and utter jerk. They have a DoF with limited knowledge of the game, the market, the contacts etc. required at that level - we will see how it goes. But overall they are improving.}

8.) 28 May 2018 16:37:15
The fourth best team in England got further than the top three this season and could very well have won it. So Ed002 I see no reason why we can’t win it next season. Not saying we will but finishing fourth this season has no bearing at all on how we fare in next seasons champions league.

{Ed002's Note - You might want to read what was previously written.}

9.) 28 May 2018 16:45:11
Well. considering a team which finishd fifth did win it a few years ago. yea i believe we can ed.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of a team finishing fifth having ever won the Champions League but I will take your word for it.}

Ed, to answer your question, I do think the 4th best team in England can win it. The 6th best team in England won it in 2012. I think it will be much harder to get this far next year, but who knows?

{Ed002's Note - I thinkl you will find the second best team in England won it in 2012. You do get that the Premier League is played for each season don't you?}

11.) 28 May 2018 17:34:23
Good discussion Ed. Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome, I enjoyed it as well.}

12.) 28 May 2018 18:30:46
The 4th best team in England won it in 2005, not sure why everyone is getting touchy again I'm sure Ed 02 knows the favourites don't always get what they deserve in cup formats but I expect he has enjoyed giving out a few home truths in the last couple of days due to past indescretions.

{Ed002's Note - The relevance of which is?}

13.) 28 May 2018 18:36:19
Good right up that mk mate.
On the other hand ed02 has me in stitches, his replys are so funny yet so blunt what a character you are ed02.

14.) 28 May 2018 18:55:11
Ed002 Mk said we should win the whole thing next year. By that I think he means the whole competition not a clean sweep at every trophy. This prompted your comment about the 4th best team in England etc.

{Ed002's Note - No it didn't.}

15.) 28 May 2018 18:57:52
liverpool finished 5th in the league 2005. just to clarify.

{Ed002's Note - Great stuff, 13 years and they are up to 4th. Do we have enough data to predict when Liverpool will win the Champions League again if we extrapolate these statistics?}

The player who’s having his agent look for a deal in Spain? Who is that? Did I miss something?

{Ed002's Note - Salah - this has been going on for 6 months.}

17.) 28 May 2018 19:24:42
"Salah whimpering like a prepubescent schoolgirl"
Is that necessary Ed002? He was injured! I know you have a lot more knowledge about football than all of us but sometimes your response is annoying.

{Ed002's Note - Feel free to be annoyed - it is a factual description of what happened.}

18.) 28 May 2018 19:57:52
002 - in general, not particularly Salah, don’t agents always try to look out for moves, either try to invite a move (pull) or hear others out (push)? In this age, I would be very surprised if there are any players who would not have an eye out for moves elsewhere.

{Ed002's Note - No. Salah asked his agent to make enquiries with Real MAdrid. I have explained this since before Christmas.}

19.) 28 May 2018 21:58:05
Ed002, I have noticed that you have mentioned Salah asking his agent to clarify interest from Spain more than once, just to play devils advocate Here, obviously he's had a superb season for us, and I would assume (but you would know more) that he would command a rather large fee. Would they be willing to pay that large fee after 1 great season, or perhaps hold a year to see if he can replicate it and prove he is the real deal?

{Ed002's Note - This has been going on since before Christmas and he had him talk with Barcelona. I understand the wages and image rights being requested were well beyond what any club would pay.}

20.) 28 May 2018 22:43:36
Many thanks for your insight and for all the time and effort you put in . It's very much appreciated.

In 1975 Bayern Munich won the European Cup but finished 10th in their league.
In 1982, Aston Villa won the European Cup but finished 11th in their League.
In 2000, Real Madrid won the European Cup but finished 5th in their league.
In 2005, Liverpool won the Champions League but finished 5th in their league.

We have three players that can fill that role, one is out for the season wirh injury and two are new signings who are learning the ropes. What good would adding another player into the mix do?

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.

I’d watched football matches on occassion, i’d developed a fondness for Michael Owen when i was very young, but my first memory of liverpool and being a liverpool fan is as clear as day.

I’d never taken too much interest in football because i was never very sporty. My dad called me into the front room one night and asked if he wanted to watch the game with me. It was supposedly important. Half time came and the team that was not liverpool were 3-0 up. I asked my dad what was the point in watching when it was clear we had already lost. He told me not to give up hope and that anything can happen in football, to stop being so pessimistic and spitting my dummy out. Full time came and we’d won on penalties.

As well as being probably the first time i was ever allowed to stay up past 10 o’clock, Istanbul was my first game as a liverpool supporter. I can’t decide whether that is as good a game as any to start supporting your team, or whether its a shame that i never got to fully appreciate it while it was happening. I’ve almost forgotten how it feels to win a trophy and i would give anything just to see liverpool lift the European Cup again. Safe to say i was somewhat disappointed in May!

I think we will move Trent further forward when Milner, Wijnaldum and Lallana begin to move on and when we can find a good quality right back as a replacement. Despite his age he is still one of the better fullbacks in world football.

Selfish on the pitch i can deal with, Shaqiri has shown that can be changed. What i cannot stand for are the antics described in that article. Its a real shame because when i have seen him play he has been incredible at times, you won’t see many players as two footed. But it is clear it has all gone to his head and we should stay well clear despite his talent, i’m struggling to think of anyone who hasn’t criticised his attitude. The days of us putting up with the likes of Carroll, Adam and Ruddock are over. We have a humble, likeable squad of graftng Ribena drinkers and that is the way i’d like it to stay. Throwing in a different sort of personality to spice things up can be beneficial, not however when that personality is an entitled, troublemaking brat.

It is certainly worrying. The change in shape may have something to do with it but i’m just not sure i’m comfortable with it, it has shades of Rodgers about it. Why are we messing around with a front 3 that performed so well last season? If salah scored 40+ goals why would we move him around? Am i being short sighted or can nobody else think of an explanation for this?

I can’t help but feel we would be getting the same amount of goals if only the front 3 were working in tandem. Despite his injury and not being 100% sharp, and teams tripling up on him, Salah is still creating a lot of chances. It is up to Firmino and Mane to help him and take advantage of the focus on him, but both have been way below par all season. Mane has turned up afew times but Firmino has been consistently very poor of late, i don’t know what has got into him. While we are playing with the brakes on, the front 3 have not been bouncing off eachother to anywhere near as well as they were last season.
