A question for the eds if I may. I have heard that we are very interested in a young winger from Metz named Sarr. Can you confirm this? Any info will be apprected.


{Ed002's Note - There is only one club keen on Ismaila Sarr but Metz are not looking to sell. He would never get a work permit for England at this time.}

1.) 02 May 2017 18:33:47
Thanks for the quick reply.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

I have heard we have been looking at a player from Freiberg, Max Philip. Don't know much about him except he is a versatile attacking midfielder. Anyone know much about him?


1.) 15 Mar 2017 07:16:11
Not Matt Phillips? 😉.

2.) 15 Mar 2017 07:57:46
Phillipp Max? Left back for Augsburg. That's all I've read and really can't remember whether he was any good when we played them.

3.) 15 Mar 2017 08:20:05
I think I remember him from the olden days of Football Manager. Young german striker/ attacking midfielder with a lot of potential, was considered one of the up-and-comings, though left in the shade of Timo Werner. Never seen him play in real life though, so no idea how he developed.

4.) 15 Mar 2017 11:13:20
I would've thought that Phillip Max was more likely as he's a LB, however there is also a Maximilian Philip who plays as a midfielder for Freiberg! Both of them are 23, so who knows which one our interest lies in, if either! Maximilian is the chap that Drigan is referring to as he is a contemporary, both in terms of age and position, to Timo Werner.

I wonder if the transfer committee got it wrong all those years ago, and we were actually, for example, after Poulsen Christian, an amazing attacking midfielder, rather than Christian Poulsen, an amazing donkey?! Who knows!

6.) 15 Mar 2017 21:19:24
He is a forward who can play across the front 3 and he will be about 22 years old now. Not heard his name in about 2 years so I don't know if he ever fulfilled his potential.



22 Aug 2016 13:05:28
Tiago Ilori will sign for Olympiakos. Fee in the region of 5m euros.


1.) 22 Aug 2016 13:44:32
Really? If so its a decent price for the boy. I hope he can go on be successful with them. He did try hard for us and was given decent chance to show his skills.

2.) 22 Aug 2016 14:26:23
So have we made money or broken even from him? If this sale is fact, we signed him for €7m, sell for €5m and inbetween acquired loan fees. I think Villa paid €2m for last seals didn't they? Even cut in half sounds like he has cost us nothing.

3.) 22 Aug 2016 14:49:01
Who cares about money. The lad had his career hindered with us let him move on to where he can play and try recover his career. Sick of young players being bought with no long term plan he never got a look in for the first team.

4.) 22 Aug 2016 14:56:57
Max Renn, what about agent's fees? Wages that weren't covered by loans? We most certainly have not made money or broke even. Let's not also forget the fact we borderline ruined a young players career.

5.) 22 Aug 2016 15:05:42

3 games? Absokutely shocking. Even un those few games i thought he showed a lot of promise.

6.) 22 Aug 2016 15:25:20
There is a reason he didn't make it and if he were good enough, he'd have played. Did he play at Villla? He just wasn't as good as we were led to believe.

{Ed001's Note - that is not always true. There have been many players who have been good enough who don't get a chance. Speaking of which, good to see Suso starting for Milan.}

7.) 22 Aug 2016 15:40:50
Suso is the one. Remember when Serling and him broke through. Maybe would have been better giving Suso more time than that little s, ;? t.
Suso could be world class. Thank Brendan.

8.) 22 Aug 2016 18:51:04
When he had his chance he was overweight and slow.

9.) 22 Aug 2016 19:17:06
AR ay come on max lad.

He played against villa and that's it? That's enough chances. Bloody hell.

Really hope the academy players don't read this. They will be devastated.

And he did look unspectacular against villa but still solid, good compusure on the ball and fast. Just needs games and confidence. Something I thought klopp would of gave him.

10.) 22 Aug 2016 20:04:45
There's so many posts about how the youngsters should play more. Not all the youngsters are going to make it to be the standard required. Liverpool have probably given more chances to youngsters than most of the other top 10 teams in England. Ilori and suso are 2 of many who had chances to shine in 1st team games and training but unfortunately just aren't good enough. Everyone likes it when an academy player makes it like fowler, Gerrard and carragher but not everyone will.

{Ed001's Note - so not true, neither had enough chances in the 1st team, certainly not Suso who did shine on those rare chances he got. It takes years of regular football to develop, not 2 or 3 games. You are talking crap. Carragher was the target of the boo boys for years and was seen as a flop by a large number of fans in his early years. It took him years to develop into the mainstay of the backline that he became.}

11.) 22 Aug 2016 20:18:31
To be fair it's not like our defence has been leaking goals for the last three years and all our centre backs have been so consistent.

12.) 22 Aug 2016 21:36:41
Out of all ilori got the least chances. What was it 2 years to get a start after taking him away from his home, a starting position in a very good team, shipped out on numerous pointless loans.

Then he gets what was it 3/ 4 games, one when he hadn't played for 6 months and was dead on his fit at 60 minutes.

Nowhere near enough and there is noone who can say any different with evidence that he got enough chances.

Shame, but glad he's going somewhere he will play

Btw noone is saying he is our savior, it going to be a world class centre half, just how young he is and how little games he has had. Look at players at Dortmund (ginter), Everton, Tottenham (Kane, diet, Ali), athletico, Southampton. You need to give a young player a real good run, if ilori had of had 10/ 15 games ina row and not shown any signs, it still wouldn't of been enough but at least it would of been much better than this.

13.) 22 Aug 2016 21:56:09
well said edd01 suso always looked liked he could be a top player to me. And Ilori could not play any worse than skrtel. I can remember Carragher playing right back and every time he got in to a crossing position passing the ball back. Is that his fault or manager playing him out of position.

14.) 22 Aug 2016 22:48:21
Carraghers 2 own goals against United.

The only time I really swore at him :-)

15.) 22 Aug 2016 23:29:37
Teixeira didn't get a fair shot either IMO.

{Ed001's Note - defo, if any player looked like he deserved more time it was him.}

16.) 23 Aug 2016 01:05:39
Good luck to Ilori, hope he wins the Europa with them.

17.) 23 Aug 2016 07:51:31
We have wasted several potential world class youngsters over the last few years. Tiago Ilori, Joao Texeira and Suso by not giving them enough game time to grow.

18.) 23 Aug 2016 12:34:10
If we gave all the youngsters 2 years to settle in, at least after 2 years they would hopefully be good enough to get us back out of the championship. All these young players Liverpool have not given a chance to in the past have gone on to other clubs and how many have become world beaters?

{Ed001's Note - for gods sake this stupid comeback again. That is the most ridiculous way of judging whether a player could have been good enough if they had not had their way blocked in their formative years. The time when they usually make the most progress, but they can't do so when they are not getting first team football.}

19.) 23 Aug 2016 16:43:38
Ed1, you are pretty quick to accuse posters of talking rubbish but that is just your opinion. The posters are entitled to their opinions as well. Personally I am pleased to see Suso has improved and is doing o. k. but I do not think he would improve a top 6 EPL team and Teeira showed soe great flashes of form but went missing for long periods Illori? we shall see. I had high hopes for him, quick and skilful but an EPL CB? not so sure. Just my opinion of course :-)

20.) 23 Aug 2016 16:46:55
Tex, Suso and Illori 3 world class players? Ridiculous.

21.) 23 Aug 2016 17:31:39
CR I don't think the argument is about their quality but more about the fact we don't give our youngsters time and chances to prove themselves. A game every now and then isn't going to prove anything. They need a good run just the same as any new signing, possibly more so because of their age. You have to accept that there is going to be bad games and inconsistencies because of their age and lack of experience. Talent needs to be developed.

22.) 23 Aug 2016 19:09:46
CR - Texeira went missing for long periods? When did he get 'long periods' in which to go missing!? 2 EPL appearances. that's all he got. It may be 'your opinion' but facts still speak for themselves, which makes 'your opinion' a load of old codswallop!

{Ed001's Note - Teixeira looked a diamond whenever he played.}

23.) 24 Aug 2016 00:11:28
I think this is the Coach having all the power vs having director of football and a coach argument. Coaches always look out for themselves and take the safest option, add the premier league spending power, they always choose the buy a safe option instead of being given a team and being told to actually coach, teach and develop talent. You can tell when a coach is over his head, he stops coaching and becomes the manager, tried to outwit everyone, ironically, best managers never stop coaching and teaching. In the end, it's the young players that suffer by sitting on the bench.

24.) 24 Aug 2016 07:45:54
Those players may or may not have been better than we know. Sometimes players simply don't get enough time in the first team.
Look at Villa playing Lescott and Richards over Okore.
De Bruyne or Lukaku not getting time to develop at Chelsea.

25.) 24 Aug 2016 07:48:43
Football is about opinions. If we all had the same opinion football and this website wouldn't be what it is. I do agree with some of your point about giving youngsters a chance but with fans, owners wanting immediate success and managers futures riding on a few months performances. In my opinion you'll see less youngsters being given long runs of matches in the first team as the managers job is on the line. I'd like to see the likes of Arnold and brannigan given a run in the team. Maybe it's up to the club's to make changes to the u23 to make it more competitive and worthwhile?

26.) 24 Aug 2016 13:17:55
I just hope these guys don't end up like Pique or Pogba. Miss the potential of them, move them on and turn top notch.

27.) 24 Aug 2016 17:14:29
Edd001 think of what texeria could have become with lallanas game time.

{Ed001's Note - exactly mate, he really looked a special talent that lad.}

28.) 23 Aug 2016 22:11:17
Ironic selling Ilori just a few days after our lack of pace in defence was so badly exposed.

29.) 25 Aug 2016 08:29:22
hope Ojo gets enough chances.

30.) 26 Aug 2016 09:28:32
Was interesting to see about Teixeira that in spite of being on loan, in spite of not playing a full season with them the Brighton fans loved the guy. Considering most fans look at a player loaned in from EPL club and think he'd better be seriously special or else he must have been doing something right.



22 Jul 2016 06:24:51
Alex Manninger has agreed a one year contract.


1.) 22 Jul 2016 15:54:05
That's the signing that will win us the Premier League.



15 May 2016 06:36:00
sergi canos has been told he will start today.

12 Jul 2017 05:28:48
I wonder how many people on here remember we have signed two of the most highly rated youngsters in Europe for Gerrards U18s check them. Dal Varesanovic from Bosnia and Edvard Tagseth from Norway.


1.) 12 Jul 2017 06:26:38
Like Suso, Ojo or Ibe?

Very difficult for youngsters to come through to the first team these days.

2.) 12 Jul 2017 06:46:18
So we shouldn't sign any talented kids then Ron?

3.) 12 Jul 2017 07:05:35
I heard about Tasgeth and all his reviews supposed him to be ahead of Odegaard at his age.
I also remember us signing couple more youngsters after the Tasgeth deal. Although I can't recall the names right now.

4.) 12 Jul 2017 07:20:11
Mentioning Suso though Ron is relevant as both the kids I mentioned are both small left footers who are very technically gifted.

5.) 12 Jul 2017 07:21:27
I heard about the Norwegian kid!

6.) 12 Jul 2017 08:55:11
Didnt we get a transfer ban for youth players or is the U18 not a youth team?

{Ed002's Note - I know nothing about the kids but any agreements eached before a ban can still go ahead. So if the agreement to sign these players was reached before the ban was in place then these players may still sign for the club.}

7.) 12 Jul 2017 09:39:09
The youngster I was forgetting about was Patrik Raitanen. Finnish Centre back and totally looks like Hyppia's son.

8.) 12 Jul 2017 10:55:32
It's an interesting question ChiefScout.
To be honest, what is the point in signing them if they aren't going to get the chance to break into the first team?
They're better off at a club which brings through youngsters with first team football.

It's a common problem with the top half of the premier league. You can only play 11 players at once, fans demand expensive new signings every window. Managers have to get results from day 1 so can't risk bringing a youngster through.



08 Jul 2017 05:52:44
I had a conversation with Sadio tonight about transfers and what's going on. He told me to look up a word from his language, Sabali. I even asked him to spell it. Nice 1 Sadio am on it.


1.) 08 Jul 2017 06:57:54
Any cerebral person knows that 'Saba li' means 'tapping up' in Senegalese ChiefScout. I truly hope this is in reference to his mate Naby Keita 🙏🏻.

2.) 08 Jul 2017 10:09:58
it means "patience"



02 Aug 2016 03:01:57
i am not even going to mention the defending for Romans second.


1.) 02 Aug 2016 04:33:43
first romantic now romans?

are romans romantic ChiefScout? haha just kidding mate, auto-correct huh? =P.



28 Jul 2016 07:17:17
I was going to talk about how impressed I was by certain players but Phil Babb was the 'pundit' on LFC and all I could think about was Casaraghis only goal for Chelsea.


1.) 28 Jul 2016 07:40:52
Could of been worse, could have had the American commentary who kept calling Grujic bloody Henderson, and thought Aina was Baba Rahman!

2.) 28 Jul 2016 10:17:22
Could have been worse? Look at Casaraghis goal and see if Phil sees it that way :)



09 Jun 2016 06:59:44
Well played Coutinho by far the man of the match and hopefully a performance that will earn us an extra few million. We need to cash in asap as he was playing Haiti and has now been cursed by voodoo.


1.) 09 Jun 2016 07:27:10
I will market a few Coutinho dolls if enough posters want to stick pins in him :)

2.) 09 Jun 2016 10:05:06
What's everyone's beef with Coutinho?
Been a very good player for us, never caused us any problems on or off the field. He wants to play CL football.

Good luck to him if he leaves. He'll get a big cheer from me if he ever returns as an opponent.

{Ed001's Note - well said Ron, that was how it always used to be, unless the player left under a cloud ala Mascherano. Strange how people are so keen on sending out love for him, yet want to have digs at Couts.}

3.) 09 Jun 2016 10:19:47
Spot on Ron. Got nothing but respect for the lad whether he leaves or stays, great player with a great future.

4.) 09 Jun 2016 11:29:46
Yeah, I absolutely don't want him to go but you can't blame the lfc for wanting to play champions league, he's well contracted so we'll get a good fee. This it what makes the Europa final all the more painful, never mind missing out on signings losing our best players is the biggest issue. The list of players we could lose is dwindling with every season however and that is a very worrying assessment of the quality of player we currently have.

MK unless we buy another (expensive) striker there is no way Origi should leave. Do you honestly believe Firminho, Sturridge and Solanke are enough for a title winning team? And why start criticising Klopp over such a simple question?

The funding is there no question. Its whethr the club want to put a huge portion of hat budget on one player. My opinion is to go for it. I would be happy with Keita and a left back now and wait until January and see where we are.

Hull are trying to get player on loan and there are a lot of negotiations need sorting out first. Kent was not the first player they asked about. They would happily take Ojo and Ejaria.

Don't worry too much about Lazar, he is another one of those extremely talented kids who will never have the right mentality to make it at the top level. Good luck to the kid wherever he goes, hope he toughens up and proves me wrong.

He played for the U23s and scored v Rhyl. I think the same night as the Tranmere game.
