Ojo to Boro, I think it's a better move for him than Newcastle. A move to a premier league club would have been ideal however I don't see him getting regular games at any premier league club.


1.) 11 Jul 2017 16:19:44
Yh but if he wants to play for liverpool he needs to prove himself at the highest level.

2.) 11 Jul 2017 18:17:09
Please no. if he goes to boro he'll likely not play for us again.

3.) 11 Jul 2017 18:42:31
i don't see the big deal, if he's good enough he'll make it, if he's not he won't. Hardly rocket science!

4.) 11 Jul 2017 18:42:31

Good for him, but gutted in a way, wish we could've seen him play for us more this season but again, it's a good move for him to give him regular football.

6.) 11 Jul 2017 20:01:39
Unless there has been a change at Boro, we couldn't have sent him to a team that is more opposite to how we play. hope it goes well for him.

7.) 11 Jul 2017 21:25:49
Things have changed they have a new manager and from what I've seen monk wants his team's to play good football he's not just a long ball merchant.

8.) 11 Jul 2017 21:40:23
Monk does want them to attack, I fancy Ojo to get plenty of game time.

9.) 11 Jul 2017 21:56:05
Yeah I reckon he'd be a starter the majority of the season Hansens, he can be vital for them I'm sure, should he stay fit.

10.) 11 Jul 2017 22:05:20
Flanno should go as well to a club luke boro or Villa.,

A season playing regular football in the championship would build up his resistance better tha warming a bench at Anfield or Burnley.

Its make or break for the lad this season.

11.) 11 Jul 2017 23:26:46
Boro are a good team for giving promising youngsters s chance. My mate is callum chambers uncle. He said he liked it ar biro but want to go back to arsenal. Wenger really likes him and wants to keep hold of him but he wants regular matches. Is he good enough for us? Mani killed him last year. Arsenal Ard signing lacazette! Why couldn't we get him? Too slow. Come on liverpool, put your money where your mouth is. Time to spend that 200 mkl we were promised. Coul get kieta and vvd, Robertson and still have 50/ 60 mil for z striker. We are not going to win the league without a top goal scorer. No one has ever won the prem without a 25+ man. Arsenal also fancy vvd. They have a very slick transfer team and could charm him. We need to move this week and offer 70 mil for both players. So what, we want to win don't we? We were unbelievable last season. Best football in the league. If we had someone like lacazette I reckon we would be really dangerous against any team in the world.

12.) 12 Jul 2017 01:56:42
Will be a baptism of fire for him. Championship is rough, decent level of football. I have a feeling that ojo could light up our front line. Been saying we need a goal scorer, 25+. He could be that man. Been ages since we had a kid who made defenders gulp.

13.) 12 Jul 2017 04:21:08
Just to add. Salah, firmino and mane are as dangerous as they come. That is some front line. With capable fbs and creative midfielder (coutinio ) I can see mane getting 20+ if he doesn't get injured.

14.) 12 Jul 2017 05:28:06
I know it sounds rash bur we need to get our skates on. We want new players to settle a little before new season. And others are trying to sign them. Just pay the asking price, we are going to have some team, if we get these two. Thought kieta was pie in the sky but looks like he's coming.

15.) 12 Jul 2017 06:30:42
Ojo has already proved himself in the championship with 2 other clubs.
I'm afraid I agree, this loan is not a good sign for Ojo at LFC.

{Ed001's Note - that is the problem, he has not proved himself. He was on the fringes both loan spells as he is simply not ready yet.}

16.) 12 Jul 2017 09:00:51
Should he stay fit this season and do well, he MUST be given a chance with our first team next season or I fear we'll lose him, I have everything crossed for this lad. Watched him for along time now and he really excites me for the future.

17.) 12 Jul 2017 09:24:02
So many fans (of other clubs too, I'm sure) MASSIVELY overreact where young players are concerned. Ojo isn't either ready or good enough to make our bench most weeks, so loaning him makes total sense. 2ndly not every young player is like Rooney or Alli and ready to be top class Prem players in their teens. 3rdly loads of highly promising youngsters don't make it at big clubs we just hear about them less because we're less interested in other teams young players. A loan will be good for Ojo as he'll either prove he's becoming the player we hope, or he'll do well enough to earn himself a transfer and us some money.

18.) 12 Jul 2017 09:43:04
Fabcrusoe - I have a feeling one day you will eat your words, your saying 'Ojo isn't either ready or good enough to make our bench most weeks' Ed1 said he isn't ready, which I will believe because it's coming from him. I have a feeling you are just taking people's words for it and haven't even seen him play, he has talent, he can be the full package with a bit more experience.

If it wasn't for his back injury last season I feel he'd be going nowhere on loan and we would be slowly putting him into the first team with cup games to start off with. But to me, as ed1 has stated, he isn't ready and I feel this is the reason behind him not been ready.

Unfortunately his injury set him back, not his fault is it? it's just unfortunate. Onwards and upwards for that lad I think.

I agree a lot of fans do overreact over some youngsters, but Ojo is at another level, I'm not saying he's going to be world class or anything because nobody knows right now, but at least a good player he will be, providing luck goes his way for once.

Ed1, your a busy guy I appreciate that but would love for you to do an article on Ojo, your opinions and excellent knowledge of players/ staff is second to none. If you could add this to your big list mate I think it'd make a great read.

19.) 12 Jul 2017 10:58:34
I have a feeling he will struggle to break into the boro side but we will see, I hope he does well.

20.) 12 Jul 2017 11:06:50
Yes going on loan can be great but if he goes on loan to the championship next year he will have the exact same questions hanging over him of is he ready for the premier league. He will be another year older and us fans will likely be calling for another winger to be signed by then. Woodburn will probably stay and move further ahead of him in the pecking order too.

21.) 12 Jul 2017 11:41:34
Personally think a loan with Newcastle is better. A year under Rafa might change his game. I rate him but in the games I have watched he seems a bit loose with the ball. Has the attributes to succeed though for sure.

22.) 12 Jul 2017 11:48:01
He will get games somewhere down the line in the championship, simply down to the sheer number of matches they play across various competitions.
Its a bit rougher too, will toughen him up and teach him to be smarter on the ball. Precisely what Leicester did with Mahrez, but they did it internally.
What one of the previous posters said is bang on, he will either show Liverpool enough to get some games for us next season or will prove he has the ability to help another club and get transferred.

Good luck to him, I love a direct, forward thinking player.

23.) 12 Jul 2017 15:45:23
12 thumbs down for saying we need a top striker? And for saying we won't win league without a 20+ man. We'll no one has EVER Won the prem without a 20+ man. I also concede that mani should have got over twenty last season if not for injury and African cup and could be that man. I hope he is. I still feel we need another striker and if we keep making low offers for players then the big spenders are going to swoop in and sign em from under our noses. Kieta is already talking about city. Mbappe is meeting with arsenal. Both Could be at melwood already.

24.) 14 Jul 2017 02:15:36
Superred, mate, while I admit you're getting unfairly thumbed down (I assume you've REALLY gotten on the nerves of a bunch of people and they're getting personal), that last comment is complete garbage.

Some seasons of the Prem didn't even have 20+ goal scorers, and they definitely don't rule a team out of winning if they don't have one.

Maybe think before you post and do some damage control on that rep of yours.

Barcas general manager has come out and said deals for Coutinho and Dembele are close. With what the players have also said this week it's looking highly likely this will happen and I think we've seen the last of Coutinho in a Liverpool shirt.


1.) 17 Aug 2017 08:12:53
IF Liverpool buckle and give into Coutinho and Barcelona then surely we must have some deals lined up and the remainder of the transfer window could be really exciting or the club are just happy to pocket the money which would mean this transfer window would be the worst I can remember in a long long time and the club/ board should not be surprised with the fans react in such anger. I'm really really hoping its the first option.

2.) 17 Aug 2017 08:18:27
Don't believe the hype, my friend. Barcelona are in free-fall esp. after the shalacking they got from Real (w/ o them even breaking a sweat really) so something had to be said as the socios are out for blood. I do know that Dembele will indeed go to Barcelona but they are still trying to do the payment structure. As for Cou, we shall see.

3.) 17 Aug 2017 08:20:17
He's gone. I just hope we buy One world class replacement.
Doesn't have to be in his position, but Couts was our top scorer last season, the best player in the squad
Just hope we bring someone in to replace that
None of this £20Mil/ £30mil here n there carp like we did with the Suarez money.

4.) 17 Aug 2017 08:22:42
What did couts say? I haven't seen an interview or statement on any social media plattform that he will leave.

Yes he put in a request which is understadable if Barcelona came knocking for you but he haven't said he doesn't want to play for liverpool or will force a move through.

5.) 17 Aug 2017 08:38:53
Lol! How about splashing €150 mill and actually closing the deal than talking talking and more talking. There is a vey good chance they get neither of them! Lol.

6.) 17 Aug 2017 09:13:15
I don't think we have any deals lined up personally, we should have got them over the line by now if we did. I think our transfer strategy is akin to a drunken man wandering round a bar randomly asking all the women for a paddestoel.

7.) 17 Aug 2017 09:25:17
It's funny how losing to Real Madrid is free fall yet us struggling against Watford is nothing to worry about.

8.) 17 Aug 2017 09:48:09
Can't be true macca said only last night! These 2 things vvd and coutinho can't change that quick can't wait so see keitas house.

9.) 17 Aug 2017 10:56:09
Thing is Jayden, its the nature of the defeat. Barcelona were insipid and offered nothing. They don't look capable of even making second place which is a big deal for them.

10.) 17 Aug 2017 11:26:52
Totally understand where you're coming from Mr Dennis but it's 2 games into the season for then against the current best team in the world. We have been outplayed by Watford and Hoffenheim so far.

11.) 17 Aug 2017 11:48:05
I think they look like they are in free fall because they have a lot of players they want to sell, but no one wants to buy them and they don't have much quality coming through at the moment either. We always look like we're in one crisis or another, its almost a perpetual state of being for us.

12.) 17 Aug 2017 12:01:50
Haha fair points mate.



11 Aug 2017 10:43:23
FSG released a statement saying Coutinho is going nowhere. They would have serious egg on their face if they sold him know.


1.) 11 Aug 2017 11:31:18
You mean like they did when they said Suarez wasn't for sale?



04 Aug 2017 11:19:17
Hoffenheim! worst possible draw imo.


1.) 04 Aug 2017 11:43:40
If we have any hope of a title push or doing well in the league this year the likes of Hoffenheim should not be an issue. If we can't get past them we don't deserve to be in the CL.

2.) 04 Aug 2017 12:27:24
Why exactly are folks worried about this draw? Hoffenheim is a team that UCL challengers are expected to dismantle over 2 legs so why should it be any different for us? If we struggle against Hoffenheim, we will struggle to make it out of the group stages and I have full faith in Klopp he will not let either worst case scenarios happen at any cost.

3.) 04 Aug 2017 12:58:03
folks are worried because hoffenheim is the german version of every team we struggled against last season but with better players.



02 Aug 2017 22:34:44
We will play one of FCSB (Steaua Bucharest), Young Boys, Nice, Hoffenheim or Istanbul Basaksehir.


1.) 02 Aug 2017 23:08:49
Probably prefer to avoid a trip to turkey, hodge grim weren't bad last year, take any of the other 3.

2.) 02 Aug 2017 23:21:16
Hoffenheim bitte.

{Ed025's Note - why are you asking me?.. :)

3.) 03 Aug 2017 01:57:39
Nice? Ballo.

4.) 03 Aug 2017 00:27:35

Fair play ed025.

5.) 03 Aug 2017 07:14:07
As long as it isn't Nice or Hoffenheim I don't mind.

6.) 03 Aug 2017 07:19:52
I would say young boys would probably be the best draw.

7.) 03 Aug 2017 09:36:20
Who cares. We're better than all of those teams and I would expect us to beat any one of them. If we don't win we'll be an absolute laughing stock.



16 Jul 2017 00:54:31
I'm sure most of you will moan but I tend to get my info at the 11th hour and it's been broken on here long before but the Keita deal looks on. I would say we are 90% sure of getting Keita although I was told gotze was nearly done last summer.


1.) 16 Jul 2017 05:33:05
Think that statement alone should convince you that the voices in your head cannot be considered a 'trusted source'!

2.) 16 Jul 2017 06:03:51
I'm sure Randy Orton will disagree with you Marshy.

His football brain is too slow for me and he holds up play a lot going forward and he's not disciplined enough to be a holding midfielder.
I agree he has great attributes to be a wonderful footballer but so did Micah Richards.

In my opinion we got a better player in Salah.

As Macca states he's passing on what people close to the club think and things quickly change, I was told by someone who works for the club that Gotze was on last year but that never happened.

He seems to have done very well at Aberdeen and Huddersfield and every time I have seen him he looks quality. He will have been under a lot less spotlight and scrutinised a lot less, it's tough at a big club but he must be worth a go? I do however work with a Huddersfield fan and he likes him but said he doesn't think he is good enough for Liverpool, only one mans opinion but he's watched a lot more of him than I have.

I rate Eriksen highly and would be fairly happy with his as a replacement, I also agree on Dembele, one of the most underrated players in the league imo.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has shown zero interest in Eriksen.}

I think Firmino is a good option upfront. he does a lot of graft and fits our style really well. I agree with Ed1 we need defenders although I disagree he's been out mom the last 2 games.


{Ed001's Note - who has been better in a Liverpool shirt than Firmino? The moment he went off against Watford the game changed again. The moment he went off in midweek it was the same. He makes us tick right now.}

Suppose your right, I had my dad but have the club shop on my first visit when it used to be a shed in the corner of the main stand/ Anfield road if I remember correctly. My first game I think was against Wimbledon and I think we won 3-0,the rain and pitch was that bad we feared the game would get abandoned.
Nutmonkey I'm sure a great day will be had and I hope you avoid any delays on your journey.

I'm just stating a fact ed7, Anfield rarely has much of an atmosphere these days, unless your up near the top of the kop. Just trying to reign in expectations.


{Ed001's Note - I don't think anyone notices that kind of thing on their first trip to be honest. It is just so exciting to be there. I can barely remember my first game at all, I was so busy just looking round the stadium wide eyed.}

Hope your lad enjoys it, i Wouldn't get your hopes up for much of an atmosphere though Nutmonkey, the fact it's a qualy and we are already 2-1 up, that drive back will be a killer too.

Those 2 are quality players, People seem to think Nzonzi is no good because he played for Blackburn and Stoke but he is quality and was their best player and has kicked on in a better team.
