Been told by someone who works within the club that Shaqiri is coming and Klopp is going to stick with Karius as number 1 contrary to reports. Hardly over the moon with either really but the same source did seem to think Gotze was nailed on a couple of seasons back so I hope things change again.


1.) 05 Jul 2018 09:30:04
Let's see what happens. Shaqiri just doesn't seem like a klopp player.
Karius deserves some slack from our fans either way. YNWA should apply for karius too.

2.) 05 Jul 2018 09:45:33
If that’s true I think Shaqiri will eventually take Karius’s place 🤝.

3.) 05 Jul 2018 10:25:59
That's an upgrade Ron.

4.) 05 Jul 2018 12:05:54
Ed001 is 100% spot friggin on regarding Shaqiri. There is talent in the academy that should get a look before making a signing like this. I think it’s a waste of money. Not necessarily because I don’t think he is any good, but if we are just making signings for cover as some suggest what is the point of having an academy? If we do sign Shaqiri I will support him and hope that he does well but give the youngsters a proper chance.

5.) 05 Jul 2018 12:13:52
stone - this is nothing new with Shaqiri or even with Klopp. It’s the modern day game which demands quick, regular success.

If Klopp had won something then maybe he could take a risk with a youngster, but he’s under pressure to deliver this season and everyone moaned about how weak our bench was in the CL final.

{Ed001's Note - and it has improved by buying 2 first team players so that those that were in the first team will now be on the bench. Why waste money on players no one believes are good enough to make the first team stronger and are merely just there for 'cover'?}

6.) 05 Jul 2018 12:26:42
Agreed totally.
However, every time there was a rumour that we are buying first 11 material, the default response from an ed is either “unless Salah is leaving” or “if Mane were to leave”.

{Ed001's Note - no it isn't. Did anyone say anything of the kind when Fekir was close? You are mixing up your own ridiculous expectations with the truth. Some players would only be signed if Salah or Mane were to leave. Some would be bought to improve the team as it is.}

7.) 05 Jul 2018 12:45:47
Ey ed if klopp can screw shaqiri head on and he can make an impact in say 10/ 12, where we can also give Salah a rest then for the reported 12 million it's a bargain.

If however he just flops and we want to sell, were not going to lose anything major, as I've said before someone like West ham would probably pay 20/ 25 mil next year. Even he has just a handful of good games.

Got people saying why didn't they sign him now, well liverpool want him and there hardly going to compete with klopp or champions league now are they.

{Ed001's Note - if West Ham would pay that much, why don't they just sign him for 12 now? You are making no sense.}

8.) 05 Jul 2018 13:06:39
''Why waste money on players no one believes are good enough to make the first team stronger. ''

Because if they replace mane, he ain't going to sit on the bench. We don't have a world class midfield and they can be subs. we have world class attack that won't be subs. solanke ings Sturridge don't fit the mould and ain't good enough.

So improve your bench. Man city have an unbelievable bench. klopp is trying to address the issue.

{Ed001's Note - Man City built the bench by buying first team players, not players for the bench.}

9.) 05 Jul 2018 13:44:56
I get your point ron but if we are buying for “cover” that is partly what the academy is for. To buy a player to simply cover is a waste of money in my view. How many times have we read on here from so many asking why the youngsters aren’t given a chance? I hope they get a legitimate chance during the pre-season. Just my opinion.

10.) 05 Jul 2018 14:01:51
Remember on the 25th of May when nearly everyone was saying how good Karius had been and that they'd be happy for him to be first choice next season? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

11.) 05 Jul 2018 14:23:33
Ed I answered you question in my post.

They probably do want to sign him now but he's probably going to choose us for the champions league and were liverpool.

If however he doesn't work out I'm sure they would still be interested and the going rate for a good rw like him is about 20/ 25 million. Plus if he has a few good games but wants more game time than we can offer then maybe we sell him as a prize asset for like 30 mil.

{Ed001's Note - you haven't answered my question, you are just making guesses.}

12.) 05 Jul 2018 14:31:47
Totally on board with ed here. I would much prefer we either buy someone that would put our first teamers on the bench or give Harry Wilson the cover job than Shaqiri be brought in. But if he bought he will have my support. There is a player in there somewhere, and if anyone can get it out of him it’s Klopp.

13.) 05 Jul 2018 14:19:07
Poor guy I feel sorry for Karius. He was doing well up until the final and had shocker yes but that can happen to anyone. Look at De Gea for Spain (yet everyone still classed him as one of the worlds best.

I do think we should upgrade don’t get me wrong but if we can’t get the guy we want, we wait until we can. Karius is still a decent keeper and I think with our midfield improved significantly he should be called up less

I just hope to god he doesn’t read this site. What happened to YNWA? Embarrassed to be a Liverpool fan at times.

14.) 05 Jul 2018 14:53:04
Makes sense to spend 200m on neymar and put mane on bench. and when he leaves spend 300m on mbappe and put neymar on bench. or fingers crossed we have unearthed an entire squad of WC subs. as shown on many an fa/ efl cup game.

15.) 05 Jul 2018 15:10:35
Does any of our opinions or the Eds opinions matter, if Klopp wants him then he sees something, isn't that all there is to it. Klopp doesn't care if you think he's lazy or someone else thinks he has a bad attitude or if Ed thinks there's better in the academy or elsewhere, it's the managers choice. I'm all for opinion but don't be absolutely hammering a player because he's being linked with us. Mane had issues pre_Liverpool, Keita has had his fair share too, let's see what happens and who knows, he might win golden boot out of nowhere next season.

16.) 05 Jul 2018 15:25:36
Considering the other options bandied about it for goalkeeper I’d far rather stick with Karius and make Ward number 2, sell Mignolet and bring in an experience third choice. Besides which, Karius is a young lad and will learn from that night in Kiev.

17.) 05 Jul 2018 16:05:37
Who is putting mane, Salah or b9bby on the bench? Answer me that.

Second ed. There isn't a single premier league team who want shaqiri? Who have struggled offering what we can?

{Ed001's Note - he has been touted around everyone, that is all I know.}

18.) 05 Jul 2018 16:50:07
Far enough ed. I wasn't arguing with you but I just don't think there is much to stress out with this transfer. We will make pleanty and release loads of wages once the likes of sturdier have been offloaded.

Secondly no matter how good you are you always need something off the bench and signing smartly isn't always the worst idea. I personally think fergie would of signed him, lime he did solskajer, chicharito, Larson etc. He knew having some good back up on the bench was a smart move but there isn't always better than what you have out there. Which in this case unless it was Messi or Ronaldo I think our front 3 are irreplaceable. Maybe apart from mane but only slightly.

{Ed001's Note - none of those players were bought for the bench, they were all seen as players with the potential to be first choice. Fergie was never afraid to leave a gap in the squad for youth players.}

19.) 05 Jul 2018 17:09:03
Isn't it constantly mentioned that it is a squad game now, we are not signing him for the bench we are signing him for the squad. We need squad players who are good enough to play premier league games when we are resting the likes of Salah for CL games. Yes we need spaces for kids to get game time and develop but we also need experience to be able to stand a chance in those games.

20.) 05 Jul 2018 17:19:42
and I think shaqiri is more than good enough for the bench but has the talent that if klopp can screw his bloody head on and he thrives in our attacking play could become a first team player.

I just think your way out with this one. He is a good player. Solid. If klopp makes it click. Well he might just supirse a lot of us.

Like Henderson, Chamberlain, Salah, mane, Robertson, Trent, Loren, Milner. So much negativity surrounded all of those players. Deemed wastes of money or not good enough for liverpool. They where all first team starters in the cl campaign and resulting final last year.

Yes we can't label every llayer we sign with klopps magic wand but we can't just discount how good he has proven to be with players who where deemed not good enough!

21.) 05 Jul 2018 18:08:34
its all a moot point if the karius rumour is true. we won't win anything unless we buy a quality keeper.

22.) 05 Jul 2018 19:31:12
StevieJesus we’re not gong to get Oblak and there really isn’t much point shopping in the reject pile for the likes of Navas or Cillessen as they’re not quality at all. So we should give Karius our support.

23.) 05 Jul 2018 19:37:48
I agree FMS. Well said mate.

24.) 06 Jul 2018 03:41:23
The underlying assumption to this raging debate seems to be that we are buying Shaquiri for "cover".

What is the basis for this assumption?

25.) 06 Jul 2018 07:44:23
That he's not good enough to displace any of our current front 3. Not many are, to be fair.

26.) 06 Jul 2018 08:47:28
Defo strongly agree with Ed about buying players for the first 11 and therefore strengthening the bench with proven first 11 players from last years. Despite being unlucky with injuries at the end of last season we lacked 2-3 players who can come on and make an impact.

Dybala for me would fit the profile and is an excellent player. More mobile than Fekir and I believe fits better with the now dynamic midfield we have to match our front 3. The system can be tweaked for different games giving
Us a plan B and allowing us to compete in all comps.

Still think we need a keeper but in Klopp I trust.

27.) 06 Jul 2018 10:38:57
"Man City built the bench by buying first team players, not players for the bench."
And the same with Fergie's United. The way to build a strong squad is buying players who can be starters and take someone's place, then it's up to the player who gets dropped to the bench to improve and fight for the place back.

Buying backup players gets you nowhere, just look at Chelsea last season for the perfect example. Deserved champions one season and a big league flop the next. They signed Morata, Bakayoko, Drinkwater, Rudiger, Zappacosta, Emerson, Caballero, Giroud and even Ross flippin Barkley for a total of almost a quarter of a billion pounds and NONE of them improved the first team.

So yes it would be VERY difficult to improve on our starting forwards, so I'd prefer if we go for a younger player on lower wages who9 can play on but wings and has more potential to learn and improve, like Moses Simon for example.



07 Mar 2018 06:43:15
The club are struggling to persuade Rhian Brewster to stay at the club. He's keen on a move to Germany with Dortmund keen on him.
He believes he has a greater chance of breaking through in their set up and in all honesty taking my Liverpool hat off he's probably correct.


1.) 07 Mar 2018 09:59:36
he won't play for 8 months, he just had a terrible injury!

2.) 07 Mar 2018 10:33:06
Nostradamus- It still doesn’t take away from the fact he wants to leave.

3.) 07 Mar 2018 10:44:05
Where have you got this info?

4.) 07 Mar 2018 11:20:49
A source within the club.

{Ed002's Note - I told you about this months ago - I am not a "source" within the club.}

5.) 07 Mar 2018 11:25:07
It'd help his cause to break through if he could stay fit, two seperate breaks this season isn't it?

6.) 07 Mar 2018 11:35:47
But in some regions you are considered a sauce?

{Ed002's Note - A couple of bars in Chelsea, yes.}

7.) 07 Mar 2018 12:35:18
I haven’t got the info from you ed2,I have got this from someone within the club.

{Ed002's Note - That is fine - but it is far from new.}

8.) 07 Mar 2018 12:49:19
I’m just passing on what iv been told from a good source, if that backs up what you have said previously then fair play to you finding out earlier.

9.) 07 Mar 2018 13:21:08
Well goodbye and good luck.

10.) 07 Mar 2018 14:45:06
I hope we can keep hold of him, he looks a talent.

11.) 07 Mar 2018 14:47:02
To be fair a move to Germany could be very good. He could develop and stay out of the limelight a bit, he'd be watched like a hawk if he broke into our 1st team anytime soon.

What's his contract situation? Is he on a pro contract yet or would he move to Germany on a free (plus compensation ) .

We'd do well to sell him with a buy back clause and maybe get him back in a few years once he's developed a bit more.

12.) 07 Mar 2018 15:12:25
It makes sense from his perspective sadly. The Premier League is hyper-competitive, more than it has ever been before, and arguably the most competitive league in Europe. Younger players, unless they are truly spectacular, just don't get that many opportunities at the top sides in the Premier League - I think any youngster who had real ambition would be wise to look to Europe for more opportunities to develop, both as a player and a person, as they are facing a real uphill battle in the Premier League.

13.) 07 Mar 2018 15:23:05
I wonder if he could be used has part of a deal to sign Sessegnon?

14.) 07 Mar 2018 15:40:58
So Dub, he's said he wants to move to Germany to help his progress, and you suggest sending him to Fulham, in England?!

15.) 07 Mar 2018 15:47:38
Dub Jim-He wants to go to Germany not Fulham.

16.) 07 Mar 2018 16:26:27
No TIA im suggesting that if were gona lose a 17 year old whos done nothing in senior football, then we try and use him to get something we do want and someone who does want to play for us. Granted its very unlikely but all im saying is could be worth a try!

17.) 07 Mar 2018 18:51:58
Too early to tell with him.
We poached him from Chelsea.
If he goes, he goes.

18.) 08 Mar 2018 08:44:41
Exactly Ron, Solanke won the u-21's world cup and the best player in it and looks not completely ready, let alone ready to lead the line, this kid wins the u-17 world cup and thinks he should start games? its a bit ridiculous. I guarantee he will barley get a kick for the first team at Dortmund as well. That Man City kid, Sancho moved there for the same reasons and he is a much bigger talent than Brewester, i think he has played 1.5 games all season! As i said goodbye and good luck, he will need the luck part real bad!

19.) 08 Mar 2018 11:23:58
is there a max to the number of years you can loan a player? obviously not longer than his contract, but say he has 4 years left, can we loan him out for 3 years to the same club?

{Ed002's Note - You can give a loan which is renewable if everyone agrees. Else two years.}

20.) 08 Mar 2018 16:05:16
Nostradamus-Sancho has featured more times for Dortmund in the bundesliga then he would have for City in the premiership I can almost guarantee.
He’s featured in 6 games and started some and would have played more without injury.



11 Jul 2017 15:56:06
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
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!

5.) 11 Jul 2017 19:13:36
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.

Great result last night, the scoreline flattered PSG. I now feel we have the strongest side we have had since the last time we won the league. I know we have won the champs league, come runners up twice and nearly won the league in that time but I always saw us as an underdog on those occasions. I'm not saying we will win the league/ champs league this season but it wouldn't surprise me, Klopp has really moulded us into a great team.


1.) 19 Sep 2018 14:56:22
Dont mean to be picky, but I think we have come runners up 3 times since we last won the league. Once under Gerard Houllier after the treble year. Once with Rafa's Gerrard and Torres combo and once under Brendan when we had SAS.
Again soz, don't mean to pick holes but I remember the pain of those runner up years so vividly its difficuly not to correct!

2.) 20 Sep 2018 18:03:00
Why can’t you say we will win the league / champs league this season. I never understand this! Great team or no great team but CL is the second most decorated trophy for any professional footballer!



25 Jul 2018 22:33:50
Same source within the club who told me about Shaqiri (and also Karius not being replaced) has told me that we are done with signings this summer. Pretty gutted personally as I really rate Fekir and wanted us to revitalise the deal.


1.) 25 Jul 2018 23:11:16
Errrrr I don’t want to undermine your source but Karius has been replaced by the most expensive goalkeeper in history.

2.) 26 Jul 2018 00:17:32
What?! When did that happen, Ron?!

I can’t believe I didn’t spot it on this site?!


3.) 26 Jul 2018 06:55:02
Ron- i’m mentioning this to point out that he isn’t always right, although he said this before Karius made the errors in pre season so I’m guessing this changed Klopps mind.
The Fekir deal was called off due to his knee showing up badly on scans so you can’t really blame the club for doing so.

4.) 26 Jul 2018 07:31:51
Ugly knees? What a way to lose a transfer, maybe he could use make up on them and give the guy doing the scanning ten pints, everything looks better after 10 pints.

Plenty of pints and concealer. How to pass a medical Fekir style :D.

Brewster has signed his first professional contract with the club. Goes totally against what I was told by someone within the club a few months ago but I'm happy and hope he can have a successful career at the club.


1.) 17 Jun 2018 12:25:02
Yes a few reports suggesting this is true. hope he gets a chance to shine on loan somewhere competitive or a taste of first team football with LFC.

2.) 17 Jun 2018 12:26:30
great news.

3.) 17 Jun 2018 12:26:51
Why leave Klopp and this Liverpool team. I can see him competing with Solanke this season to be Bobby's back up with Sturridge, Origi and Ings leaving. Before anyone says that's not good enough Mo or Mané can also play through the middle if needed.

4.) 17 Jun 2018 13:03:23
Not “signed” yet, but agreed on terms. Hopefully a formality now 🤝.

5.) 17 Jun 2018 15:40:03
I think it's great news but only if we give him the opportunity to play, we have had some great success at junior levels as a country recently and we need to follow germanys example and be brave enough to allow them the chance to develop in the premier league, my fear is none of the top teams will and players like Jayden sancho and ademola lookman (if he stays in Germany) will be better placed to transition into the national side.

6.) 17 Jun 2018 17:09:00
Has to be patience on the young players part aswell. they may learn more training everyday with world class players at the top teams in England than they will getting (some) game time in Germany for example. Lookman and Sancho have done well there but there also Reece Oxford who has struggled for game time at Moenchengladbach. The very best of the youth like Sancho, Foden, Odoi and Brewster will rise through the ranks anyway because they are that good. Sancho will probably end up back at City anyway don't they have a buyback clause?

7.) 17 Jun 2018 18:17:19
Excellent! Would love to see him get a start this season.



12 Jun 2018 21:13:13
Looks like Lemar is signing with Atletico so that's one to cross off the maybe list.


1.) 12 Jun 2018 21:54:44
Cobra, We already moved on from Lemar and his name was already scratched from the list months ago and we picked that guy called Fekir instead.

2.) 12 Jun 2018 22:00:28
Que the " we missed another one " comments, fsg out, everyone out 😵😵😂.

3.) 12 Jun 2018 22:56:16
So who are we after BRover? seems like your in the know.

4.) 13 Jun 2018 03:51:14
Cobra, don't think Lemar has even been on a list for us since last summer. Was way over priced and way over hyped. I am glad we didn't pursue him.

5.) 13 Jun 2018 10:06:11
We're after a chap called Fekir. He will be a Liverpool player by the end of the window.

That is all.



05 May 2018 04:25:27
Great win for Brighton last night which in turn is good for the final day imo. They won't have anything to play for and will hopefully have their minds on the beach add to that they have also been awful away from home.
If I was Klopp I would rest players Sunday and go full strength against Brighton, slightly risky but I think we've looked a little fatigued the last 3 games and a rest is needed for some players and fatigue is the only thing I can see stopping us beating Brighton. I'm not confident at all for Sunday and if we play a full team and lose it will do more to harm our chances against Brighton. I know some will say play full strength both games and have 2 bites at it but imo I would play a reserve team on Sunday.
On another note, how are United second? We are so much better than them yet their going to finish a good few points ahead of us and probably win the FA Cup!


1.) 05 May 2018 06:53:01
I didn't see the game but I'm pleased for Chris Hughton who seems to do a good job in an undemonstrative way everywhere he goes.
I do like the guy and I think he was right to call Klopp out earlier in the season too.

2.) 05 May 2018 08:06:13
Cobra De Gea, their player of the season for a 4th time. That’s why they’re second. When utd dominated and they had it schemeichel in goal I don’t think he ever won that award.

3.) 05 May 2018 08:48:06
Your right on that one Swish.

4.) 05 May 2018 08:49:02
I have to say I have no idea how United have finished runners up they are shocking. When a keepergets player of the year four years in a row it says alot.

5.) 05 May 2018 08:58:22
Utd are not great entertainment wise but football is a results business and they have the points on the board. We are playing some of the best football we have ever played in premier league era and are in a CL final so we should be all ecstatic about that. Yes we have played better football in the league than Utd but they have had better results over 36 games.

6.) 05 May 2018 10:56:36
I saw the game and they were dreadful from top to bottom. As for DDG, it was his mistake that directly led to the goal that Brighton needed to win and stay up. As for Utd, football may be a results business and they may have the points on the board so they finish second and credit to them. That does not remove from the fact that they are horrible to watch to the point that their fans started walking out of OT vs Arsenal. Yeah, even many of the fans are no longer buying the whole "results business" stuff anymore. Coming second was NEVER a trophy and is definitely not much to write home about if you spent near 300m and finished 20+ points behind City.

You need to be able to play football in order to give yourself a chance to win consistently. That is football of today. Imagine, Utd actually tried to beat Seville by not actually trying to score a goal, hoping that Seville make a mistake and since they did not, they were screwed. Really? This CL and PL campaign has shown that fortune favors the brave and both finalists are worthy cos they played the open style of football that will lead either one to glory. Same with City and their PL win. The Utd fans see it. We see it. Everyone sees it. They are nowhere near winning the PL any more than we are and Mou will be gone after next year while Klopp will still be here.

7.) 05 May 2018 11:49:23
My cousin supports Man United so had to endure watching them over the last few years and have to say De Gea is superman in the flesh. I have with probably seen him make the most ridiculous saves, which in turn gave them the win in too many games to remember, take him away and Man United finish midtable or therabouts.

8.) 05 May 2018 12:01:59
Here's hoping Madrid buy de gea. He saves them minimum 10 points a season. Without him I think they'd be struggling like arsenal.

9.) 05 May 2018 12:09:33
The art of boxing is to hit and not get hit. The art of football is to not get hit (concede) and hit (score) .

Hence why United finished second. if you don’t concede you don’t lose. And they’ve got a punchers chance every game to get that knockout (goal) .

Just shows the importance of a great keeper.

10.) 05 May 2018 12:14:38
BRover I echo very much what you say mate. Except your coming second is not a trophy. Utd won 2 trophies last season and could win 1 still this season. Yes we could still win the grandest trophy of them all but also you bet your life if we finished 2nd we would boast about it. I hate Utd as much as the next LFC fan but I don't let that cloud my opinions or comments.

11.) 05 May 2018 14:55:30
Alonso-Why do you have to watch utd because your cousin supports them?

12.) 05 May 2018 15:30:35
Cobra I lived with my cousin for a few years and I also watch other teams play not just Liverpool,

13.) 05 May 2018 16:12:58
Hopeful Madrid can take De Gea off their hands and give them Navas in return.

14.) 05 May 2018 20:17:04
Jay, this is where you are mistaken. I have NO business in discussing or boasting about coming second. I NEVER did it when BR did it cos he bottled the PL royally. Had we come second this season, I would seen it as progress and nothing more, just as I saw our getting to two finals with Klopp as progress compared to the seasons before. Why? cos according to the late Dale Earndhardt jnr (great NASCAR driver), "Coming second only means 1st place in Loser Land".

As for their two trophies, yes they won two trophies BUT with one caveat. The trophies they won are the same trophies that Fergie, their fans and their current manager, called Loser's trophies when WE or others were winning them. BUT Now that they are winning them, they called them the treble. Yeah, they even added the Charity Shield and called it a treble. So when were they hypocrites? Was it then or is it now? I would not refer to their "Losers' Trophies" (Their words not mine) cos it is laced with hollowness and rank hypocrisy.

15.) 05 May 2018 20:27:24
TaffyTel, your boxing analogy makes very little sense. The art of football has nothing to do with not conceding. It has all to do with scoring more goals than the opponent, just like boxing is the art of landing more punches on your opponent than he lands on you. If you don't wanna get hit in boxing, don't step in the ring, period. A great keeper will not stop you from conceding cos EVERY GK concedes just like every boxer gets hit.

Frankly, the DDG worshiping needs to end cos it is bordering on the near absurd. It took DDG a good 3/ 4 years to get to where he is now BUT people just talk like he came to Utd as a world class GK. NONE of that is true. Why? We all saw him struggle for a good two years. In fact, Rio said that Fergie doubted DDG so much that he used to consult with the senior players on whether to start DDG or Tomasz Krusczak.

Utd play a very slow, defensive system and that has not stopped DDG from conceding or making mistakes (he has made 5 of them that I saw w/ my own eyes) . It takes a whole system to defend well in football, not just the GK.

I watched a bit of Herthas game and he looked good and scored, I think they are unbeaten in 7 with 5 wins in the games he’s played.

I thought he played well last night. until the final ball.
He looked fairly sharp at times yesterday and is still getting himself into good positions wanting the ball, I will start to get worried if he goes quiet and the chances dry up.

Ojo isn’t good enough. I have said that on here time and time again, I have never seen the hype with him. Hopefully for his sake he can move on to a level more suited to his game currently and build himself up and prove me wrong but for me we are 100% correct in getting rid.

Ruddock was an awful player and epitomised theclub at the time, an ex player (maybe Mark Walters) came out recently and said it was a joke at the club around that time and no wonder we did terrible, players didn’t train properly and there was no discipline within the club. Roy Evans has to take a lot of the blame for that as apparently he didn’t have the capacity to bollock anyone and let it all go unpunished.
TSLF- you say Evans wasn’t backed but at the time Ruddock, Babb and Scales were big money signings, record signings for defenders if my memory is correct? So you can’t say Evans wasn’t backed and I’m sure he would have had input on choosing them.
As for drug testing I used to be in the military and had to do plenty of ‘random’ drug tests, plenty of my colleagues did coke but not many fell foul of tests, it’s normally out of your system in 24/ 48 hours and you can flush it out other ways. The tests normally got done on a Wednesday and I think the army did that in purpose as it meant Saturday night wouldn’t show up.

Bobby Blinders- they where both through on goal 1 on 1 with plenty of time to compose themselves before striking, much easier chances at the time of shooting imo. What happens after shooting doesn’t make the chance any easier/ harder, it’s like saying Sturridges goal was a better chance because it went in.
Don’t see how this makes me a so-called fan? i have called the game as I saw it, we looked more threatening but a draw was probably a fair result, the general consensus on here and by pundits. How have i failed to see what we have done and shown a bias for Chelsea?


{Ed025's Note - take no notice of bobby cobra you are totally correct, the result was a fair reflection of the game and anyone who thinks different either needs to take off the red tinted specs or start watching another sport, other teams fans call you the deluded ones and at times i can see why, show some humility FFS and give chelsea the credit they deserve in what was an entertaining even game..

Pretty even game, suprised how Chelsea never had a period of dominance to put us under the kosh but that was probably because they took a fairly early lead. I thought we looked the much more threatening team throughout but the best chances fell to Chelsea with Alisson pulling off 2 good saves from 1 on 1s. In the end a decent result which feels all the better as we got a late equaliser, wonder when the last time Chelsea have drawn with us at home yet see it as a good result? Shows where we are at.

In the NFL games are only shown on tv in the area when it’s a sell out, so the premier league could work on that basis when showing a Saturday at 3:00 game?


{Ed001's Note - the NFL doesn't have a lower league system to worry about, it is not the same and would not help matters. The Premier League is not the issue.}
