Any news on VVD guys? Heard nothing my end yet.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 15:46:44
didnt you just say he is having a medical with chelsea?

2.) 31 Aug 2017 15:47:54
my bad that was for mahrez.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 15:52:30
VVD, He's coming mate . Lemar refusing to go to Arsenal so that's still possible.

4.) 31 Aug 2017 15:57:11
I've heard nothing at my end either.
But then again, I'm 'working from home' today, so like many of us on here am unlikely to hear anything spectacular unless VVD turns up on my doorstep.
Got to go. Someone's just rung the door bell.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 16:01:01
Cmon Macca fill us in. Tuesdays passed.

vvd is a ghost, as believable as elvis riding shergar.

No. Wrong number. It was Thunderbird 3.

Coutinho just handed in an officia transfer request as reported on SSN.


1.) 11 Aug 2017 12:24:15
Just when you think it's all going to be Ok! : (.

2.) 11 Aug 2017 12:24:55
Just saw that but SS transfer Centre is down.

Pipco broke the internet!

The irony of the re being a stroy about Klopps pleasure over the FSG stance.

3.) 11 Aug 2017 12:28:22
Right in the feels. : (.

Wow, that did not take long.

Heard sturridge is out for a month could be bullshit hope it is but what I've heard from a friend.

The Liverpool Echo report Ibrahimovic linked. is this bull or is there anything to it?


{Ed002's Note - Paris Saint-Germain would be more than happy to sell Zlatan Ibrahimovic and get his truly vast wages off the books. However, I would not hold your breath about him moving to Liverpool.}

1.) 17 Mar 2015 18:30:29
One of the best players ever. A playing legend.

2.) 18 Mar 2015 00:00:36
I know we couldn't afford him, nor might he not want to join us. But he would be a formidable signing, but I doubt he's got many years left in the tank to justify his wages.

Guys I was waiting till I took the top spot on the fantasy league till I asked this. What's the prize for winning?


{Ed025's Note - an everton season ticket.. :)

1.) 26 Dec 2017 23:24:24
2nd prize is 2 Everton season tickets!
Ed 25. lol.

Loser of the league has Big Sam sit on their face.

{Ed007's Note - Ed025's not called Sam buddy. Grajted they're both womanising chubby old men with funny accents and both are shady businessmen but after that they've nothing in common.}

7.) 26 Dec 2017 23:48:22
Ed025 is the prize for last place going to be 2 x Everton Season tickets?

{Ed025's Note - i would not wish that on anyone phil..



21 Dec 2017 17:04:50
Coutinho out bale in? If he does go he could be a suitable replacement on the cheap.


{Ed002's Note - No, but Real Madris would be open to including Bale in a deal for Salah.}

1.) 21 Dec 2017 17:15:23
Bale has passed his peak IMO.

2.) 21 Dec 2017 17:34:15
Surely we're not daft enough for such a deal. I agree Ron, he's way past it.

3.) 21 Dec 2017 17:46:34
He played pretty well that one game that he wasn’t injured.

4.) 21 Dec 2017 17:47:40
I can think of nothing worse than signing an over rated, injury prone, self absorbed muppet who has previously said he would never play for Liverpool; to replace the best goal scoring wide forward in Europe.

Like seriously, I'd rather play Sheyi Ojo. At least he'd put a shift in. Before his loans he was putting some great performances in for us at 18 years old. Anyone remember that cross against Chelsea to set up Benteke? Anybody who can find Benteke with a cross could find the lost city of Atlantis.

How has Bale gained so much support? He has been bang average since the first half of the 2015/ 16 season. And i mean really, really average. In a team built for smashing teams off the park, in a league where 14/ 20 teams are cannon fodder, he has looked like a Real Madrid B player at best.

He can't even get a game ahead of a 33 year old Ronaldo with less league goals this season than Glen Murray. Nor can he get a game ahead of the king of being over rated; Benzema. But worst of all, he can't even dislodge Isco who his basically just a show pony with a great name.

Dear god, please do not even consider Gareth Bale. I'd still take John Barnes over Bale and he must be 50 by now!

I can't think of a bigger waste of money. Ojo is literally as good as the current Gareth Bale. He's fallen that far. If anybody thinks I'm joking, watch Bale in El Classico (assuming he even makes the bench) and you'll see what i mean. I'm amazed Wales even pick him because frankly, I'd rather play Vokes or Kanu up front.

I've got Welsh heritage, but i can't stand Bale. He's the personification of a prima donna. Just look at his bloody hair. Just because you move to Spain doesn't mean you have to pretend you're Spanish! He's so focused on his image and financial wellbeing that he's forgotten he's a footballer.

5.) 21 Dec 2017 19:04:16
I think you need to calm down with your criticism of Bale Adam.

He wouldn’t be a good idea due to his injury record but his ability is not under question.

Again, I’m not advocating his signing but you’re a bit strong in your criticism there.

6.) 21 Dec 2017 19:08:07
It’s a very complex question as to what puts your club in the top bracket. In the PL Man Utd, Chelsea and City are in that bracket, with Arsenal just below them and us just below Arsenal - in my opinion. Man Utd got there with a combination of good business, and playing everyone off the park for 20 years. Chelsea and City have got there through firstly oil money, but they have then used that money well, and also run their clubs incredibly well, by people who really know their onions.

People tend to have very short memories in football. Not long ago the big four was United, us, Arsenal and Chelsea. City were in the 2nd division and Chelsea were lucky to get a good cup run. The only thing that changed City and Chelseas fortunes was rich owners.

In fairness to both City and Chelsea, they have run their clubs exceptionally well since they won the lottery, which is more than we can say about ourselves.

We have spent a huge amount of money, so we could have been up there with United in the group of top clubs, but due to bad spending, poor decision making and bad previous ownership, we find ourselves where we are.

The good news is that we do pay good wages, and are prepared to spend big, but we must be cleverer about what we spend it on. One of the things I like about Klopp is that he doesn’t want to spend where it isn’t necessary.

I believe that one if the biggest pulls we have with players is simply our fan base. We have the best fans in the world, simple as that. Players like to play for us. Ex players will always be supporters, and it’s down to the fans. Thiery Henry has often said that there was only 1 other team in England he would have played for and it was Liverpool, because of their support.

The support that a club has can help keep a team up there in that top group, and may be just as important as a whole sack of oil money - but money will always help!

7.) 21 Dec 2017 19:14:58
Your right MK, no wonder they want rid of him mate, he's bloody useless. To be honest though even when he was in his peak i never rated him as many others did, he never did it for me, he was good at best, world class? far from it.

I think the status of been at Real Madrid got to his head and suddenly he thought he was the best thing since sliced bread, nah not for me. You think of him at Spurs, he was alright but nothing outstanding not for the money they spent on him. When you compare when he was at his best to Firmino, Salah, Coutinho (when on form), Hazard, David Silva etc the list goes on, he comes nowhere near them in my opinion.

8.) 21 Dec 2017 19:23:43
Agreed Salah. He has had 2 good seasons in his career. His last at Tottenham and his first at Real Madrid. The rest have been anywhere between above average and terrible.

He's so over rated and with the injuries he's had he'll start losing his pace in next few years. Without his pace, he is nothing. He has no other attributes other than a decent free kick. He can score from range if he has 5 shots a game but he relies 100% on his pace to work the space for a shot. He's not bad in the air either, but again, that spring in his leap will desert him soon.

He's a goal scorer who doesn't score anymore. He offers nothing else to his team.

{Ed025's Note - i think hes great, if liverpool signed him he would be the best player you would have ever had in your history..

9.) 21 Dec 2017 19:35:10
Easy 25. Joe Allen was better!

{Ed033's Note - Joe 90 would have been even better.

10.) 21 Dec 2017 19:53:10
Not sure Bale or Isco are as bad as you say MK 😂 They are still in the top bracket of players on world football.

However that's being said, I do agree with you. I'd rather keep Salah than have Bale. Thanks but no thanks.

11.) 21 Dec 2017 19:50:58
ed025 can i have some of the stuff you're smoking? :)

{Ed025's Note - the police would lock us both up tony.. :)

12.) 21 Dec 2017 20:26:40
Bale is a very good player, held back by injuries. To suggest that certain players would be ahead of a fit Bale at Madrid is nonsense. Would i take him at Liverpool? No, but purely based on his awful injury record and certainly not on his ability.

13.) 21 Dec 2017 20:32:14
MK, is this the same Bale you are talking about, who carried Wales to the Euro semi finals. The same Bale who most Welsh fans think that if he wasn't injured for that semi, then Wales would have won. Is it the same Bale who has 2 CL winners medals.

14.) 21 Dec 2017 19:01:54
Even if we were to consider it should Salah push for a move Bale gets paid about double our top earner, I think ed02 may be a little tongue in cheek here.

15.) 21 Dec 2017 21:49:09
I'm sorry i have to agree on bale, if that was true about his shooting then any quick player would score every game. In the last few seasons for Spurs he carried them to the CL, the hattrick against inter, his finishing was pinpoint, and his performances in a very average Wales side. He is a good footballer. Salah is better at the moment, but a fully fit bale, is up there.

16.) 21 Dec 2017 22:54:55
Sorry, I'll pass on Bale as he is severely weakened due to his injuries even tho he would add star power to our team. I'll keep Salah, thank you very much.

17.) 21 Dec 2017 23:40:51
I’m pretty sure Bale said in an interview a while back that he didn’t like Liverpool and would never play for them.

18.) 22 Dec 2017 02:08:07
Bale is a luxury player, very good but past his best. He couldn’t hack the premier league anymore physically his body couldn’t take it in my opinion. His next move will be Italy if he has sense.



11 Dec 2017 12:54:18
Karius to continue as our champions league keeper all the way to the final? Personally I'd keep him. If it ain't broke don't fix it.


1.) 11 Dec 2017 13:45:53
With you there, Crabby. He's kept 3 clean sheets and made one error (vs Spartak at Moscow) and kept us in the Seville game with a couple of top class saves as we are undefeated with him in goal.

2.) 11 Dec 2017 14:21:09
Yupp hard to disagree there.

3.) 11 Dec 2017 15:41:23
he is our bestkeeper, shame we have to wait until feb to see him play again.

4.) 12 Dec 2017 06:10:42
His game is more suited to European football. Fewer high crosses, less physical confrontation in the box.
Klopp is using European games to build his confidence. Premier league is a different kettle of fish for him, there are no guarantees.



19 Sep 2017 21:36:10
I know we conceded two but I still think ward looked more comfortable in goal than the others. I'd keep him in.


1.) 19 Sep 2017 21:46:01
Omg have ya heard yrself mate?

2.) 19 Sep 2017 21:48:03
Think He and Grujic will have to wait till January for playing games!

3.) 19 Sep 2017 21:48:28
Ward and esp woodburn real positives Tonight.

4.) 19 Sep 2017 21:53:49
He's only played one game, Crabby. Chill out.

5.) 19 Sep 2017 22:04:42
Thought Robertson played well - AGAIN 🤝.

6.) 19 Sep 2017 22:00:27
Was I watching same game? Woodburn nowhere near ready too weak. Needs more time. In under 23.

7.) 19 Sep 2017 21:51:09
One was a worldie and the other weren't bad. They were normal goals to concede that all great goal keepers have conceded.

There where none from corners or free kicks. No flapping or bluffing his lines. No miscommunication with the defence. Quick off his line. Good passing. Great kicking.

He starts on Saturday for me.

Let's just clear this up. At this moment none of our goal keepers are good enough for the prem but ward looms the most comfortable out the 3 we have.

8.) 19 Sep 2017 22:18:54
I am sorry but what positive did Ward do? the poor lad had little involvement in the game apart from picking the ball from the back of the net twice, apart from that he was a spectator . I would protect him until we have a better defence that can shield him, the poor kid's confidence must be shaken.

9.) 19 Sep 2017 22:33:18
Truth yes, you were watching a different game.

10.) 19 Sep 2017 22:41:03
Woodburn looked lively during a period when everyone else had conceded defeat. But as you promote, the truth hurts your negative mindset.

11.) 19 Sep 2017 23:34:44
He's good enough for international football but to weak for the Moose cup?
(or whatever it is this year]




03 Sep 2017 15:45:12
What's everyone's opinion on what to do with coutinho?

Personally I'd put him in the first 11 straight away against city. I know our team would ev hard to drop but I feel if he doesn't play it'll make relationships worse with the club. Let's just get past his mistakes and get behind him again.

Having him come on as a sub would be fine but I could imagine him getting so much stick from the fans (both sides)

Just my opinion as I want him to help us challenge for the title and not waste him away with the reserves.


1.) 03 Sep 2017 16:03:58
He won't start against City, what sort of message would that send to the rest of the squad that has just thrashed Hoffenheim and Arsenal. I think he will probably be on the bench and will be gently eased back into the first team picture.

2.) 03 Sep 2017 16:07:00
I would ask coutinho if he's ready to get on with being a footballer again, if not leave him out, if so stick him on the bench, no automatic route to the first team, needs to prove himself again first.

3.) 03 Sep 2017 16:24:28
Even if he had genuinely just been injured and none of the Barcelona things had happened I don't think he should go straight into the starting lineup. The other midfielders have been playing great and don't deserve to be dropped.

4.) 03 Sep 2017 16:26:47
No, for a few reasons.

1. His head needs to be right before he's put back in to the team.
2. The team has been playing well as is, so why change it.
3. It sends a poor message to the other players, they've been training, playing well and generally working hard and you immediately replace them with a player who hasn't trained and tried to engineer a move away from the club.

First things first, the relationship between Klopp and Coutinho needs to be sorted and ensure all his teammates feel comfortable with him again (they should be, they're professionals) .

The fans don't need an apology, fans are fickle and if he starts playing when again then everything will be forgiven, as we did with Suarez.

5.) 03 Sep 2017 16:42:58
I'd leave him out of the team until the cup game against Leicester then if he puts in a performance start bringing him back in to the first team fold.

6.) 03 Sep 2017 16:49:44
Why put in Coutinho straight away after all he has done? He needs to earn back his place starting off with an apology that he acted like a teenage brat.

The club owes him nothing. He is being payed his wages and needs to abide to his contract. End of the story.

7.) 03 Sep 2017 17:34:20
The pressure will be on him to play well immediately. I can see the Leicester away cup game to bring him back.

8.) 03 Sep 2017 17:35:26
I'd stick him on the bench.

9.) 03 Sep 2017 17:38:31
I would like to hear eds1 opinion on this.

{Ed001's Note - depends on what his attitude is like.}

10.) 03 Sep 2017 18:10:47
He needs to earn his place back in training the same as everyone else.
Put the work in, show your commitment, then you're available for selection.
Mope about, don't work in training = not in march day squad.

11.) 03 Sep 2017 18:19:38
Should apologize to the dressing room then get his head down in training and get on with it. First time he smacks in a 30 yard free kick all will be forgiven.

12.) 03 Sep 2017 21:10:16
If his heads right play him let's be honest you don't just toss your best players to the side. He always turns up for the big games and it's silly to omit him due to stubbornness, if we make him wait or demote him for a game or two who benefits? We certainly don't.

13.) 04 Sep 2017 01:46:17
We go 1 nil down against city and everyone, including every poster here, will be screaming for him to be brought on.
Who cares about his head? He doesn't score many with it.

I know he's a different kind of headcase to Suarez, but after he agreed to join Arsenal in Summer 2013, he pretty much blew the doors off that season.

Play him. That's the nature of football these days. Play your best. All the old stuff about loyalty and club bullshit went out the window the day supporters stuck a satellite dish on the side of their houses.

If he#s having a good season, sell him for 250 in January and buy Lemar for 100. He'd be brilliant with Keita. A decent DM and we'd be laughing and have a full on Klopp 6.
Onwards and upwards.
To think it all started with those ugly dishes! Used be a time when Frank McAvennie was top scorer in a league that nobody was watching on a TV anywhere and you heard about it on Wogan.

Very impressed with the lad.
Hopefully he'll start against city I feel his defensive work will be needed. Also having two players if TAA plays then we have two players that can cross the ball which is certainly a weakness of Manchester city's in recent times.

I think it is already a success as keeping a player with such a poor attitude and agent is toxic for the club. I think once Benteke is done i think we have had a good window, maybe want one more signing
