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.}

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 back on old Liverpool footage. What a magnificent striker torres was at Liverpool. His best football was at Liverpool. It just clicked for him here and he had that extra yard of pace that Henry had. He was the greatest striker in the world at this club. Went elsewhere and never reached those heights again.
He was ruthless in front of goal. Something we're currently missing.

Big Al

1.) 16 Sep 2017 23:11:29
As a united fan, he was painfully class mate.

2.) 16 Sep 2017 23:27:57
As a united fan, you sure spend a lot of time here. But since you do, I would love to know why everytime I watch Man u, the fans sing knick knack paddywhack. It does my head in.

3.) 16 Sep 2017 23:39:49
Lol stand, yeah he was great.

Beef lad. What the f is it all about.

I watch any game with them and it's that goes through my f$#$n head haha.

Give the dog a bone.

What is up with that?

6.) 17 Sep 2017 01:13:57
I visit all sites. I enjoy the chat. Currently on holiday on the Algarve so I catch up while on the beach with a beer.

7.) 17 Sep 2017 01:25:35
A fully fit Torres is what I am talking about for this current team. A player would like that would mean a title challenge, with his direct play and ruthlessness in front of goal. Our forwards spend too much time making poor decisions or over passing in the box.

8.) 17 Sep 2017 07:43:37

A fully fit Torres would be worried seeing us conceding goals in numbers. During his time liverpool had the best defense and best midfield to compliment his excellent form up front. Has any team beaten us by a 3 goal margin under Rafa? While we were the master of winning 1-0 under him!

9.) 18 Sep 2017 22:03:30
Anyone who says a top clinical striker wouldn't improve us or that we would be poorer for it are just talking out there arses.



13 Sep 2017 21:40:32
Again some crazy comments
We played fantastically. Should have been 4-1 up in the first half. We conceded two truly terrible goals. Defensive woes continue.
However a great offensive performance. Truly enjoyed the match. Very disappointed with the draw. Dropped two points.
Karius is a big positive in the backline. His distribution was excellent.

Big Al

1.) 13 Sep 2017 21:47:53
We played ok. Salah, Firmino and Gini were great. We just can't frickin defend!

2.) 13 Sep 2017 21:49:28
Defence defence defence nowhere to be seen. Other clubs like city spurs United an Chelsea showing us how it's done. Lovren you wouldn't make my pub team ya crap pal.

3.) 13 Sep 2017 21:53:28
Big Al is the king of Sarcasm.

4.) 13 Sep 2017 21:54:38
Should have won 4-1! Should have could have. We didn't we finish 2-2 at home will you still say that in a few months big al.

5.) 13 Sep 2017 21:55:56
I thought we played some great football. What can I say about the goals or lovren? It's all been repeated before and there's absolutely nothing I can say that could improve the situation. Possibly gomez alongside matip who sleeps at vital times.

6.) 13 Sep 2017 21:59:08
Crazy in what way Big Al that our defence is rubbish and our manager does not have the intelligence to change things when they are going wrong but ultimately waits till things capitulate and then makes the change that should have been made well in advance . No doubting how brilliant we are going forward but you can't expect to go out and win every game 3:2 or 4:3 we just don't have the defence to be serious challengers this season.

7.) 13 Sep 2017 22:06:23
Attack was electric and should have scored at least three or four. Can't complain there and Gini was fantastic. The problem was their first goal was a howler but we reacted well and I was sure we'd go on to win it from there, but we just dropped off the pace after the missed penalty. that's the reason we lost IMO, not sure why?

8.) 13 Sep 2017 22:11:29
Our defence is crap, but let's look at the other side of the team.
Liverpool 16 shots - 2 goals
Seville 3 shots-2 goals
Too many front players trying to set someone else up, when they themselves are in a better position. Terrible penalty from Firminio, I thought he was trying to be too clever, whatever happened to hard and low in the corner.

9.) 13 Sep 2017 22:58:24
Big Al is correct. You have to look at both sides of the game. If you wanna moan, talk about the defence which mind you, conceded 4 shots all game and Karius had NO saves again. If you wanna be positive, you look at the attack. For me, our attack cost us the game. had we scored the 4 goals we should have by half time, who's taling about the defence? Not many even tho Lovren screwed up. We'll be okay in the end as I think confidence is low now within the team which explains why those chances were missed and why it seemed we did not know whether to attack or defend hence, doing neither.

10.) 14 Sep 2017 15:19:33
I agree with big Al, we played very well st times and we should have been home and dry but again defensive mistakes cost us.
Also thought we got cocky when attacking in second half both Mane and Salah trying long range efforts instead of maybe keeping the ball and waiting for better opening.
Salah MOM for me, also thought Gomez done well can't understand him getting stick.



09 Sep 2017 14:06:17
Get my post in early before all the crazies rant about nonsense.
This is what I call a write off game. We already know our weaknesses in defence. The mane red card is frustrating because the lad didn't mean any intent and only had eyes on the ball. Extremely unfortunate but I do agree it has to be a red. Very unlucky situation.
It was always going to be an uphill battle from then on. Still haven't seen the first goal we conceded to comment but just an unlucky situation overall.
It's one game. It's one loss. It's not a disastrous performance or lack of effort.

Big Al

{Ed002's Note - Right Al. Folks have forgotten that the game is away the a very good side who might well end up winning the league. It was always going to be a tough game for Liverpool.}

1.) 09 Sep 2017 14:17:15
I'll agree with you this time Al. Do wanna mention that the reception Milner gets from Citeh fans speaks volumes about them. Dude gave his all for that club and they do that.

2.) 09 Sep 2017 14:22:28
But we don't just concede against good teams though do we.

Big Al, watch the second goal by Jesus, completely lost his markers to scored with a header.

3.) 09 Sep 2017 14:23:03
100% agree, you're talking good sense Al.

It was a 50-50 game where they'd taken one of their chances and we hadn't up until Mane made a genuine, unfortunate mistake and got sent off. As much as Gary Neville believes (and possibly correctly) that the challenge would've been a yellow card had it been on any player other than the goalie, the decision was right within the letter of the law, and none of us would've been happy if Gabriel had kicked Mignolet in the face, even accidentally, and stayed on the pitch.

You work on the first goal in training because it was a poor giveaway, and then write off the rest and pick the players up for mid-week. It's all about how we react next game.

4.) 09 Sep 2017 14:23:05
Don't think we were in the game from the start. these 12:30 kick offs really don't suit us for some reason. We always seem lethargic.

5.) 09 Sep 2017 14:23:57
Couldn't agree more tbh, even Klopp has planned for the next game with the look of his subs.

6.) 09 Sep 2017 14:25:34
We're just used to destroying teams who like to attack. I think it was gearing up to be a cracker regardless. Shame about card but these things happen in football. Support the team even when we lose, even when it hurts as much as it does now. If I am critical- I worry about the tinkering of klopp. Not sure he knew what he was doing or else the players fully knew. Might I ad, didn't think Moreno was dreadful despite the horrific score line. And let's not all destroy taa just yet. He's received an education today. Let's hope he learns from it. Ynwa.

7.) 09 Sep 2017 14:30:33
Balanced post Al. And I agree with mane if he got the ball and scored he'd be the hero unfortunately he didn't and deserved to go. My major problem is that we all know the problems with the defence and keeper why the hell hasn't it been sorted. What's the point of having a good attack if the defence and keeper are championship standard or less.

8.) 09 Sep 2017 14:32:42
Fair points Al.
Unlucky with the red though?
Not sure on that personally.
If you've ever played the game at any level (which you probably have) I'm sure you'd know that you can't pull out of a goalscoring opportunity like that.
You see the goal and you see yourself getting there in your mind's eye - you back yourself.
It would have been yellow if no keeper was involved.
There was clearly no intent to injure by Mane and there was no physical evidence of any contact with the keeper was there?
Ederson I believe feigned injury, he's just returned to the sideline to be a spectator as I write this for goodness sake.
This is the way within the game now with younger players, cheat to gain any advantage.
Bet you he will play either mid week or next weekend.
For Gary Neville to say it wasn't a red card should say it all.
Awful day whatever way your opinion is though.
Coutinho will definitely start next weekend now.

9.) 09 Sep 2017 14:40:40
I'm aware some of the goals we conceded were poor nicky but we already knew our defensive problems. However it's unfair to really judge anyone. Away at city, a goal down (haven't seen ityet) and a man down. It affects the players mentally as well as physically.
We just have to take it on the chin and move on. Every team will have a game like this.

10.) 09 Sep 2017 14:45:37
Gabriel Jesus is 5'9 and still managed to get in between out cb's and scored with his head.

11.) 09 Sep 2017 14:51:07
After the dismissal, it was always going to be hard. it totally killed the game for us. but 2nd half worried me. the defence looked in tatters. we could have defended better once we knew we will get nothing from the game. we have to regroup and move on now and prepare for next game.

12.) 09 Sep 2017 15:28:29
De Bruyne ripped TAA to cross it to Gabriel Jesus, why didn't you point that out Nicky?

Anybody can score from a cross but it's the full back's job to stop the cross in the first place.

In fact TAA was ripped for whole game but so what, move on man. you are like a broken record! The defence as a whole were awful today, but the red card made their job completely impossible.
It wasn't a red card for me, but hey ho, I'll have to get over it and move on too.



02 Sep 2017 15:44:24
Liverpool wanted 183 million for coutinho? 😂 the neymar sale has been a nightmare for Barcelona. They lost probably their most prized asset. If you account the commercial side and his age then sought replacements and clubs took the p*ss. The neymar sale was a negative for many clubs this window regardless
Also psg. They remind me of city. Mbappe? What a player. I actually think he'll turn out a great investment if he is remains therefore for at least 6 to 7 years.

Ox? Unless he's transformed into a top class right back I don't want him nor see the need for him. That's a signing that makes absolute no sense.
Van dikj will be a great signing.

Any word on keita macca?

Any word on clynes future macca and the right back position.? Lacking serious quaility in both wing back positions. Robertson will just add to the problems.

Id give gomez a go centrally. Karius the shirt for the season. Milner left back all season . Arnie right back. Henderson sitting in front of the back four. Wijnaldim and can infront. Maybe target a central back January. However I'd urge fans to fasten their seat belts for a lot more defeats if changes aren't made which I truly believe would improve us defensively .
Patience is going to wear thin regarding klopp. He has no excuses btw.
There's no point talking about certain players.

I said Madrid and psg (possible) would show interest in coutinho if Barcelona look elsewhere and I doubt couts would be too disappointed as he quoted year ago his dream was to play for real Madrid calling it the best club in the world.
Coutinho still has to perform řeguardlsss until he gets his move.
