Edd002 ben smith has came out and said there will "be plenty £ available " for klopp in January. Whether that's true or not mate, I'm assuming it will be borrowed money and further debt if we are not selling to buy. Huge misconception for a lot of fans not on this site that hennry can keep cutting checks from thin air with no consequences.

Big Al

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea who "Ben Smith" is Al, but as I have repeatedly said that there will be money made available for players at the right price. You need to find out what he means by "plenty". If any significant amount is to be used it will obviously need to be borrowed and it will obviously make the FFP situation worse without selling.}

1.) 20 Dec 2015 18:12:27
Edd002 he's a bbc football journalist. Cheers for the reply on that.

2.) 21 Dec 2015 07:37:10
Over the years Ben Smith has relentlessly proven that he knows about as much about what goes on at LFC HQ as I do.



20 Dec 2015 10:19:47
Edd002, any truth on chelseas interest in benteke mate?

Big Al

{Ed002's Note - No Al, sorry.}

2.) 21 Dec 2015 10:35:44
what a shame.



03 Aug 2015 13:16:03
Edd001 is the Kovacic bid still on the table?

Big Al

{Ed001's Note - I don't think it is any more mate.}



22 Apr 2015 10:40:22
Edd001, reports skrtl will sign extension unfortunately. Do you think even with change of management he will remain here?

Big Al

{Ed001's Note - sadly it seems so. No idea why, but yes it looks likely he will stay for now.}

1.) 22 Apr 2015 11:32:57
I find it baffling he has managed to stay and play while Agger was forced to leave. Agger was slower (than he already was) but he still read the game well and as far as ball playing centrebacks go there weren't many better in EPL.

2.) 22 Apr 2015 11:38:34
Give the guy a break. at least he shows courage and fight and gets stuck in. yes he makes errors but doesn't hide like some.

3.) 22 Apr 2015 11:59:12
Dezmondo it's his errors that costs us games.Yes he's a ok defender but we need quality in there right now.He is either one tackle away from a free kick or a penalty.There has to be better players out there.
Barry inLouth

4.) 22 Apr 2015 14:06:38
Barry his errors usually come as he is trying to come across to cover in the full back posistions or because we don't have a decent defensive mid he gets pulled out of podistion and is then chasing trying to stop an attack or break play up. He wins a lot in the air and in a settled back 3 or 4 he us the best we have imo mate. Not all will agree but then that's what us Liverpool fans do isn't it.

5.) 22 Apr 2015 15:41:17
He's our best defender why wouldn't he he's under rated in my opinion a bit rash granted but still a very good defender who can contribute to a few goals

6.) 22 Apr 2015 16:20:54
Mate isn't great we can come on here and air our views but at the end of the day we just love the club.
Barry inLouth

7.) 24 Apr 2015 21:42:13
Skrtel drops to deep and plays people onside, we should be pushing up and playing them offside. I don't know how many times I've seen everyone in a line except Skrtel who's 5 yards deeper, 2 players push past the line and Skrtel plays them all onside for a 2v1.

I do admire the guy, I think he's got great heart and determination, he's a real warrior, but his dropping deep when everyone else is holding a line costs us more often than not.



21 Apr 2015 09:44:43
Edd002 are juve showing interest in sterling? Reported in some papers.

Big Al

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach for Sterling from Juventus, and I think it very unlikely they would have any serious interest. Right now they are pretty set on what they want and expect to do this summer.}

1.) 21 Apr 2015 10:23:25
In short no. As Ed says they already have targets and a pretty strict budget set so unless one of their targets go elsewhere their plans will not change.

Just as an after thought I have not heard of any italian team being interested in Sterling. In general they are not really keen on English players out there as they often struggle to settle.

Looking into this transfer window if we don't sign a quaility right back to replace Clyne we'll have missed a big opportunity to further improve the back line and our play. We can buy a striker, another midfielder etc but I definitely don't think it will make as big a difference as replacing clyne. We need a quaility right back that is a solid defender and can exploit the space down the wing.
Right back I hope is a priority. Likewise a left back to compete or add cover for Milner.

I personally don't want a striker. I don't see the need nor likelihood of buying a striker that's an improvement on what we have. Origi is still only 21 I believe? And is excellent. His decision making needs to improve but he's young and quaility. A fit and firing Sturridge as I said a few years ago is the best natural central striker in the world imo. I'm still not sure whether he's lost pace however he's still top class as proven with the last few games he was involved In. Also him and origi together were excellent.
Firminho. Nothing really to say. Brilliant player. Only frustration is for all his ability you'd expect him to score far more goals. Here's hoping that changes next season. We also still have Ings to return.

Midfield wise. I would let two midfielders go and bring in a top class one that is a real improvement in the first team. Keita imo would be ideal and a fantastic signing if it's likely to happen at all.
I think lucas may be on his way and Cans future is still uncertain. Wijnaldum I'm still not a big fan of but there's no doubt he has a fantastic engine and attitude. Henderson is our captain. He's going nowhere. Grujic hopefully gets more game time next season.

In defence I would like us to sign three players but it's highly unlikely. A centre back. Right back and left back. Lovren is hot or cold. Completely unreliable but it looks like he is going nowhere. Hopefully he improves in his decision making next season and is significantly less rash and reckless

Lastly our goalkeeping situation. I hope Karius is going to be our no1 goalkeeper and pre season will be a warm up for him. He looked excellent when he was first put in then made a few mistakes and was taken out. His distribution was excellent. In comparison to Mignolwts which is non existent. He's young and will make the odd mistake as had de gea but in Karius I truly believe we have a top class keeper.

Big Al

1.) 28 May 2017 17:05:38
Some fair points Big Al. However I would say two things:

1. Gini was our player with the most assists last season. On top of that, he scored some big and importantly decisive goals last year (City and Middlesbrough come to mind, I know there's a few more too) . Would you not agree he had a good season?

2. Mignolet after Xmas was very good in net. He's had a tough time over the last few seasons but the 2nd half of this season he was brilliant. After working with the coaching team on being stronger when collecting crosses we saw a notable increase in performance here. Does he not deserve to hold his place?

2.) 28 May 2017 17:53:11
Puzzled he made some solid saves but that's what I expect from a premier league keeper. It's been made more of because of the standard we're used to from Mignolwt. I think he was solid but Karius is and has to be our future IMO mate. Especially our play. Mignolwts distribution has never improved and is truly awful.

On wijnaldum. I watch the game and players performances. Stats especially assists mean very little to me. A player can a terrible game and can make a six yard pass for an "assist".
I've been very honest concerning wijnaldum mate. He performed better than I expected since he signed but him and Lallana are by no means starters next season if everyone's fit and we buy another midfielder especially keita or close to that quaility and Henderson returns. Wijnaldum has plenty of ability. He just doesn't impose himself enough on games imo hence why I call him a ghost at times. However I think he's a great player to have in the squad. Likewise Lallana.
Many will disagree. Everyone has been differing opinions.

3.) 28 May 2017 18:01:50
Some of the best midfielders come up with big moments witch gini does also at times u don't notice him because he is doing al the unselfish stuff keeping everything ticking over. He has been are best midfielder by far this year.

4.) 28 May 2017 20:59:49
Lallana is one of the first names on the team sheet when he's fit.

5.) 28 May 2017 21:09:35
Mignolet's distribution has improved mate, along with everything else in his game. I suppose you have conveniently forgotten Karius kicking a goalkick straight out for a corner. Probably hard to remember that with all his other mistakes.

Mignolet will start next season as No 1. I have a £10 charity bet with one of the EDS to that effect.

6.) 28 May 2017 21:22:14
Strong points, Big Al but as Puzzled said, Wiji (which you are no fan of regardless) has been great for us and was there to be counted when we were at our lowest with goals vs Chelsea, Arsenal and Burnley (a game where we were in dire straits) . The GK situation is less of an issue and I agree that Karius should never have been pulled cos Migs had been a disaster for three years so Klopp was right to replace him, period.

I will agree that he has improved but this summer they will both go in with equal opp. to fight for the job so may the best man win. I do agree with you that Clyne needs to go, end of. He is awful in all facets of the RB position and it is good to know that Klopp is looking at Ricardo Perreira from Porto, who is light years ahead of any of our FB's as he can play both LB and RB seamlessly. Hopefully, we get him.

7.) 29 May 2017 03:37:25
not sure i agree about Karius though? I think he could maybe be a top keeper but i thought he looked really out of place in most his games.
Not surprising though to be fair, with new team and country to boot.

8.) 29 May 2017 07:20:39
He's not new to the country Gareth, but he still needs time to acclimatise to the club and the physicality of the premier league.
I thought he looked fine in every area apart from crosses. That dented his confidence.
By all accounts he's been working hard on his game. Good on him, what happened last season is history, he starts with a clean slate 👍.



16 Apr 2017 17:54:33
I think we're in a strong position now to seal top 4. 3 and 4th is between us and the two Manchester teams. Arsenal face Southampton, stoke and spurs away. They'll definitely drop points within the next few weeks.
United and city play each other. It's in our own hands to seal a champions league spot.

Big Al

1.) 16 Apr 2017 18:06:39
Agreed big al, we have just come through 2 tough games with maximum points.

Palace next.

2.) 16 Apr 2017 18:53:01
Palace is a bit of a bogey team for us recently. If we manage to turn that around next weekend then I will see some serious progress for us this season. Up The Reds!

3.) 16 Apr 2017 19:32:10
We have never beat a pulis team away until today Kate so the signs are good 😊.

4.) 16 Apr 2017 19:46:10
One game at a time and we need to win em all to finish strong. looking forward to having hendo bank next game.

5.) 16 Apr 2017 20:25:18
I do t think Hendo will be back next game. I thought he was still a few weeks away?

6.) 16 Apr 2017 20:40:19
Hendo and Lallana still another game away I think.

7.) 16 Apr 2017 23:12:56
Palace with no Sakho. At Anfield. Should be three points?

8.) 16 Apr 2017 23:27:25
I know they're playing well but the spuds run in is hell in high heels, we could well catch them.

9.) 16 Apr 2017 23:59:02
Top 4 is ours to lose right now and we can even get 3rd if we win all our games. One game at a time and we will be fine.



10 Dec 2016 15:12:38
What's fans opinions on Guardoila calling for 4/ 5/ 6 substitutions with the amount of games a season?
I think it's a great idea. I wouldn't go to six. Five would be a plausible idea imo. I'd like to see it happen. Whether it's even open for debate by fifa is another thing.

Big Al

1.) 10 Dec 2016 15:24:18
Great idea on many fronts, to reduce injurys and also to introduce more younger players and to generally get more players playing time.

2.) 10 Dec 2016 15:52:48
Not convinced personally and the cinic in me says it's open to abuse for time wasting and stifling a comeback. I. e you could use subs to break up play 5 times in the dying embers. It could also see silly amounts of added time given the 30 second rule.

3.) 10 Dec 2016 17:03:37
To stop the above abuse 87red they could introduce a no subs in the last 10 rule, the Sunday league I play in has unlimited subs and players can come back on but we can't make subs in the last 10mins to stop exactly that sort of time wasting tactic. I don't think professional football should be unlimited subs but 5 seems a fair idea.

4.) 10 Dec 2016 17:07:22
Aye a good idea in principle but I have to agree with 87red.

It would simply promote clubs who are winning by a narrow margin to use 5 subs minute by minute late on to waste more and more time!

A better way of doing it would be to allow extra subs in extra time in cup matches and in league matches, allow 4 subs but ban subs in time added on in my opinion.

5.) 10 Dec 2016 18:18:18
Sounds chaotic to me. Three changes are fine with me for now.

6.) 10 Dec 2016 18:55:24
Maybe 1 more for extra time would be fine.

7.) 10 Dec 2016 19:23:59
I imagine that if 5 substitions are allowed, then they would probably have to increase the game squad for each match by 2 also? Think of the advantage it gives the teams with deeper benches and bigger budgets $$$. The smaller teams would have a much harder time competing and getting the extra two players to play, against the major teams. And this would definitely tilt some of the balance we currently have in the EPL. Imagine Guardiola changing 4 players after 15 mins of the start of a game because he suddenly realizes he doesn't like what he's seeing. The face of his side can virtually change in a major way. Whereas, Middlesbrough, whom he is facing, is already struggling with a thin squad, as it is, and can only afford to make change later in the 2nd half.

8.) 10 Dec 2016 22:37:26
Why change a perfect game? There are no teams disadvantaged by having 3 subs so why change it? More subs just disrupt the flow and momentum of a game.

9.) 11 Dec 2016 01:17:39
Its fine the way it is with 3 subs
The prem iis great to watch and is way better without a winter break.
Its a real test of skill and stamina.
The transfer windows have been a great success stopping wealthy clubs buying their way out of trouble mid season.
Makes managers rotate the squad and utilise younger players.

10.) 10 Dec 2016 16:04:53
It is a shocking plan. clubs like city have big squads with strength in depth to cope with all the games. If both teams make a combined 10 changes it would ruin the flow of the game.

I think Guardiola needs five changes as he is not sure how to set up his teams against "lesser" premier league clubs who do not just roll over.

11.) 10 Dec 2016 18:54:03
No to 5 subs from me what next shoulder pads and 4 quarters instead of 2 halves? Where is the management skills in picking a team for the game? Daft idea by a manager who's looking for excuses.

12.) 10 Dec 2016 21:59:53
It's a ridiculous suggestion. 3 is plenty, do we really want the chaos that happens in American sports and Rugby? No.

13.) 12 Dec 2016 09:03:21
Next he'll want their keepers to strap a dustbin lid to their gloves.



03 Dec 2016 15:14:00
Chelsea get soo many appludits but they're such an ordinary side. Man city truly exposed defensively. Aquero again losing his cool with a shocking tackle and city's best player now unavailable for 4 games.
Great incentive for us to kick on.

Big Al

1.) 03 Dec 2016 15:19:03
Let's not forget arsenal lads. They're a good side. I still think this is our year. If we can come out on top after spells without Coutinho and Mane then I think it's ours.

2.) 03 Dec 2016 15:22:53
Too right tjred.

3.) 03 Dec 2016 15:28:25
That's the key. How we manage the next two months without Coutinho initially and then Mane, later. I'm confident about Origi. It's the ideal opportunity for him to seize center stage. It's Sturridge that is the main worry. He'll be needed; and in peak physical and mental condition.

4.) 03 Dec 2016 15:30:20
Man Citys poor defense made Chelsea look good. They had 2 shot on target with 10 minutes left in the game. Neither side worry me.

5.) 03 Dec 2016 15:31:58
But nah, you still won't hear concerns from pundits about City's defence in relation to their title bid.

6.) 03 Dec 2016 15:33:02
An ordinary side getting extra ordinary results Big Al? I thought they were brilliant in the second half and credit is where it is due.
Instead of moaning and making excuses Conte has got them play to his system in absolutely no time.

7.) 03 Dec 2016 15:33:03
Anthony Taylor had an absolute mare, City should have been comfortable by half time and they only have themselves to blame but that was a dreadful performance by the ref.

8.) 03 Dec 2016 15:33:47
Correct me if I am wrong. A very ordinary side won the title last season convincingly!

9.) 03 Dec 2016 15:39:17
Seriously. Chelsea worry me. 8 wins on the bounce, including tricky ties against the champions, Tottenham, Man united and away at rivals Man City.

Those results are at least as good as the ones we have had to spark such optimism about Liverpool winning the league.

I'm not being negative. I think we are the two best sides in the league. And we beat them. I'm looking forward to the battle, but certainly there is no evidence to write Chelsea off.

10.) 03 Dec 2016 17:32:27
Ridiculous. Chelsea have been excellent and are on top on merit. They have also played all of the other top 7 sides and have an easy 5 fixtures coming up and have a bigger squad than us. I think we have our work cut out particularly with Coutinho out until the new year, to stay close to them going into the new year.

11.) 03 Dec 2016 17:34:48
Don't write them off Joe no but I certainly don't fear them. City could've had 4 today and Luiz should've been sent off. Thought the ref did Chelsea a massive favour there even Luiz knew it. They were lucky not to concede more against Spurs and even Boro should've had a couple against them. Mark my words they will start to drop points very soon, they are massively riding their luck.

12.) 03 Dec 2016 20:06:49
Chelsea only impressed me in the way they took their chances but again, not surprising because they have the front line to do the business at any moment. They are on top on merit and nothing else.

However, I will say that they got completely hammered and exposed today and City should have been out of sight had they taken their chances and had the ref not completely bottled it and sent the awful David Luiz off. Their wingbacks were shown up as average and Kante was being owned in midfield as Fabregas was a ghost all game and offered no defensive help to Kante. Pep got his tactics right but was betrayed by luck and his defense.

Conte on the other hand, did nothing to change the game while his team was getting swamped and trust me, they won't be this lucky all season.

{Ed025's Note - hmmm, the green eye of the little yellow god would be a good read for you hamilton.. :)

13.) 03 Dec 2016 20:21:18
I really can't believe Hamilton just said that Chelsea finished an intense 90 mts at Ethihad being lucky in between scoring 3 goals.
Oh My.

{Ed025's Note - oh my indeed..

14.) 03 Dec 2016 21:31:53
Did you watch the game Harry? If city had taken their chances when they were on top, which was most of the game, this would be a different conversation. Fair play to Chelsea who played very well on the break but it should have been over. Luis was a very lucky man also.

15.) 03 Dec 2016 21:41:23
There's nothing green eyed about it. Just facts. LFC thumped City 4-1 at the Etihad last season without breaking a sweat so I'm more than cool with that. Had City taken their chances, the smugness in your post would have disappeared.

{Ed025's Note - you stated that chelsea got battered yet they won 3-1?, hmmm thats not smugness mate,,,its sanity..

16.) 04 Dec 2016 07:53:03
Rose tinted specs lads. I don't care how you do it, 8 straight wins in bpl with 3 goals conceded beating city, Utd, Spurs, Everton in the process? That's form to respect and certainly not to discount. If that had been our run, people would be waxing lyrical.

It's shaping up to be an exciting season for us but dictediring Chelsea and their run is ignorant.

17.) 04 Dec 2016 11:11:21
It is your year 😂😂😂😂.



28 Nov 2016 17:31:31
Coutinho and firminho have been applauded this season and rightly so however I think James Milner has been absolutely fantastic.
As a midfielder and attacking player I criticised him heavily. He simply wasn't good enough imo.
However the one thing I always applauded was the lads work ethic and attitude which is nothing short of top class. He's applied that attitude on the pitch and has been been best left back in the league by a distance. If he improved his crosses in with his left foot he'd be probably the best left back in the world. I can't think of any left back that's been playing as well especially going forward as him? Correct me if I'm wrong
He's been that good. Hopefully he stays fit and continues to perform. Very impressed.

Big Al

1.) 28 Nov 2016 17:47:54
Decent post and a big fan of your write up Big Al. I am waiting for the day you ll come up with something on your fav Can 😎.

2.) 28 Nov 2016 18:45:37
Cans been okay in the last few games.
Didn't start off against Sunderland well, misplaced passes but improved in the second half and was a lot sharper.
He's a big plus going forward. Offers another attacking threat when he's near the box or making those runs forward. He's scored a goal or came close in every game now.
He's only 22 mate and will continue to improve. He's also not afraid of the dirty work and tracking back. Klopp will utilise his potential because he has plenty of it to be a great player.

On wijnaldum. I've been a heavy critic. He's the one player I have been negative about. I'm still not a massive fan but you know he has worked extremely hard and slowly but surely looks like he could be successful imo anyway . He's involved in a bit of everything in our play both offensively and defensively. He still wouldn't be my first choice but he's done nothing wrong really looking at it. His attitudes be first class so I would admit I've been very harsh on him.

3.) 28 Nov 2016 18:55:33
Big Al

I wouldn't agree completely but I am not a massive fan of either one. Both lack natural defensive attributes and one main reason Henderson struggles in the area. I am not sure the reason to buy Wijnaldum. If it was only to buy someone to carry the ball forward there are unlimited players in Europe.

First half against Sunderland summed up perfectly to me. All three CM's passing to each other while struggling to find any movement up front. The full backs are never called up to the game.

Neither Can or Wiji are a fine passer of the ball something we struggle when we loose Coutinho and Lallana both move it very quick between the lines.

Milner is a stop gap IMO. He is solid defensively but doesn't offer anything going forward but he is the reason Coutinho floats in and around the area without actually looking back to track.

4.) 28 Nov 2016 21:30:31
Can is a decent squad player.

5.) 28 Nov 2016 21:52:21
Can is much more than a squad player, if he stays then he will be a very important player for us in the years to come. Klopp evidently likes him, and his quality is clear, he wouldn't have been picked for Germany in the Euros if he wasn't a very good player.

Same old Liverpool concerning transfer targets and especially British players. Hoping that we miss out on players speaks volumes.

Robertson is the left back version of Clyne. Not great going forward or crossing. Poor defender.
how are we improving on this season next season by adding more players that can't cope when we they are pressed or have no time and space? Robertson like cylne is a headless chicken.
I would love to know who has watched Robertson in our scouting system and thought the boys in anyway good enough. Or if it's Klopp that's a fan of him, someone needs to check his glasses.
There are a lot of question marks already in our back line. Adding Robertson will add further ones.

Big Al

{Ed002's Note - Maybe the problem is the person choosing these players?}

Definitely not. We've struggled badly without Henderson and we need a top class midfielder Reguardless. Wijnaldum and can have been poor and we struggle against teams that sit. We need a top central midfielder in especially with champions league football. Ino after a win like that the entire team seems invincible but truth be told we've struggled in this last quarter.
Sturridge made a big difference today. he's a top class footballer and coutinho could drop deep. Origi and sturridge played very well together. Origi needs to improve his decision making but his partnership with Sturridge is exciting for next season if Sturridge stays.
Another win and champions league football. However this team has shown its weaknesses and lack of quality. We need players in the summer. I don't want top 4 next season. I want us to compete on all fronts.

Conte has been the best manager by a mile this season. Top notch . struggled early on then changed the system and set up.

Ed025 I would not trust us to spend 200 million in a transfer window. It's definitely not to do with spending big. More so we constantly wasting money. I'll never forget when king Kenny took charge and I was over the moon then I read a BBC headline. Liverpool offering 37 Million for Andy Carroll.

{Ed025's Note - every team buys the odd lemon AL, whats more defining is the players you dont buy like the extra £500,000 that would have got deli alli, but i suppose some players just dont fit at a certain club like lovren who looked very good at saints but not at liverpool and schneiderlin who looked good for saints and us but not for utd, sometimes it just down to luck i suppose mate..
