Brannagan loan to Bolton seems to be on the cards in January. I really hope he can kickstart his career and make a big impression.
Are any other loan deals on the cards for January?

Prepare for 'Azmoun to Liverpool' rumours everyone, he scored tonight against Bayern Munich.


1.) 23 Nov 2016 19:20:43
He looks a prospect but I just can't see what he would bring that we don't already have. He wouldn't get the game time he needs to develop into a top player.

2.) 30 Nov 2016 01:53:17
Cracking player his ball control is amazing him n couts open up defences on the turn at will he won't leave create the right atmospere n players thrive klopps getting the fans to feed his players awesome.

Schalke left back Kolasanic linked on a free transfer. I remember ed001 mentioning his name a good 6 months ago as a potential option.


1.) 01 Nov 2016 13:14:17
have watched schalke a lot and i think he would fit in very nicely in england. i think this would be a very good signing for liverpool if true.

2.) 01 Nov 2016 16:23:14
If the last Schalke defender we signed on a free is anything to go by then sign him up!

3.) 01 Nov 2016 23:30:55
I've seen him play a couple of times and the guy is a very solid defender with attacking sense. He took over from Fuchs who is the best LB in the PL. I wouldn't mind him at all.

4.) 03 Nov 2016 09:18:28
Ed001, What are your thoughts on Lovren if I may ask? I find myself constantly struggling to make up my mind!

{Ed001's Note - on his day he is good, but he can be rash and is far too inconsistent, which suggests he has mental issues with concentration and focus. Without good concentration and focus you are unlikely to reach your potential as a defender on a regular basis. Personally I think he would make an excellent back up, third choice, defender, but he is not quite good enough for first choice.}

5.) 03 Nov 2016 10:16:15
Yea I'd agree with that! Thanks for the reply Ed :)

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

There will be Liverpool scouts present at the Germany u21s game tonight to watch Mahmoud Dahoud.


1.) 06 Sep 2016 19:44:22
were going to need someone like him in Jan / Feb, Our star player Mane is playing in the African Cup or something, and will miss about four games, two being United and Chelsea, I am really hoping that Ojo makes the big step up, he has it in him to do it .

2.) 06 Sep 2016 19:47:18
I do find it interesting that scouts watch internationals.
It's so different to club football.

3.) 06 Sep 2016 21:58:06
ron, yes me too. And I find it interesting that someone above thinks we need to sign a player in January as Mane will be missing for 4 games. yes 4 missing games means we need a massive January signing. Is that to replace a player many of us in here thought was not very good before he had kicked a ball in the colours of LFC?

4.) 06 Sep 2016 22:30:28
If I remember correctly, Mane missed the Burnley game, one that most fans thought would be a handy three points, and guess what, there goalie could have been reading the programme, we were awful, after just three games, we are already playing catch up .
maybe icon, you forgot to read the post properly, I said two important points .
one, Mane will miss two very big games, Man U and Chelsea .
two, I said that I hoped Ojo would be able to step up, as I think that he can .
if I can just add, that Liverpool paid a very big fee to get Mane, and already he is being looked at maybe being our Star player .
we really need someone else up front, to take us to the next level .

5.) 06 Sep 2016 22:52:03
Redforever. I have to point out that you said he'd be missing for 4 games but named 2 of the teams he will miss. So are you saying he will miss 2 or 4 games? You did say you hope ojo can step up
But you also did say we need someone like Dahoud in January. That tells me you think we should sign Dahoud in January. Iconic did read it properly, you didn't write it properly I think.

6.) 07 Sep 2016 00:50:16
actually WelshRed, Mane will be missing for more than four games, I did mention the two big games, as I thought them the most important, Mane will also miss an FA. Cup game, 4th round I think, also a League cup game, if we are still involved, its my opinion that this season, we don't have the team to make top four, as we have too many weak spots in the team,
if you look at other teams, were they have bought to improve their team, spending huge amounts of money, its far too easy to get left behind, and end up mid table .
there is a transfer window in Jan, that I think Klopp will use to improve our team .
we have so many injuries, Ojo himself has been out, one of many, but I see him a big star one day .
now I can't see the future, but Mane will miss Cup games, whoever we are drawn against, also how far Manes national team gets to .
I hope this makes my previous post a bit clearer, sorry if it came across not so clear .
I also believe that we might become too relient on Mane, and fall back when he does not play, this is were I amlooking at the bigger picture, and mention Ojo, or Dahoud, who I think we will see at Liverpool .

7.) 07 Sep 2016 00:59:09
Just like to point out to Redforever that Dahoud is not a winger or forward, so the talk of Manè and Ojo is completely irrelevant!

8.) 07 Sep 2016 01:01:11
WelshRed, I just looked at my first post, and I did say that Mane will be missing for about four games . this being, like I have mentioned, how far we go in the Cup Games, and how long Mane is away for,
you asked, am I saying is it two or four, well it could be six, we will see, but one point that I am making is that Mane is becoming so important for us, that his absence will be reflected on the results, hence why I think we should buy big in January, to make the team stronger .
I don't want to see us in 8th place ever again .

9.) 07 Sep 2016 02:58:18
Ragout is being scouted for next season, I read somewhere so don't understank those saying he'll be bought to compensate for Mane who'll be off to the AFCON, especially as he's a CM and not a winger. Makes no sense really.

10.) 07 Sep 2016 09:23:19
That makes things a LOT clearer redforever. Who do you feel we need in January to strengthen? For me, it's too early to call except the obvious LB situation.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs rarely if ever plan for January transfers. Clubs do not wish to sell because of disruption. Additionally, clubs do not buy cover for players going to the Africa Cup of Nations. I would not get your hopes up too much.}

11.) 07 Sep 2016 10:21:46
Cheers Ed 👍.

12.) 07 Sep 2016 14:32:07
Maradoo, Klopp likes his strikers and attacking players to rotate positions during play, you could see Sturridge or Mane anywere up front, and that's the type of player that he likes, I am hoping that when he does buy another offensive player, he will fit into his system, just trust in Klopp, he is not perfect, but he is our manager .

13.) 07 Sep 2016 14:42:44
WelshRed, I can see us bringing in the obvious left back, a defensive midfielder, and let Lucas move on, also a pacy attacking player . this Dahoud kind of fits the bill, also he is on his last year of contract, will not sign a new one, he is not being picked to play first team football, so he could leave in January .
but as the Eds have said many times, transfers are more difficult in this window,
just some more info on Mane, he has just won the Liverpool player of the month, and in Jan / Feb, he could miss a minimum of four games, up to a maximum of seven games, depending on how long he is away for, and if we are in the League cup semi finals, which is over two legs .

14.) 07 Sep 2016 20:03:01

Dahoud has 2 more years until june 2018.

15.) 07 Sep 2016 20:46:22
Malagared, are you sure, its not what I read, anyway, that transfer might never happen, tho he is a really good player, and Klopp has a history of moving players on, and bringing in new ones .

16.) 07 Sep 2016 20:51:47
Come January anyone else think we could do with a AM?

17.) 07 Sep 2016 21:00:21
Malagared, think were both right, yes he is under contract till 2018, but he will not sign an extension to this contract, is not getting picked for his side, and will probably move on in the summer transfer window, looks like Klopp is keeping an eye on him as Liverpool scouts were checking him out .

18.) 08 Sep 2016 04:29:00
It looks like we have turned his head. But I don't se a sale in January unless we were to pay a huge money. should have bought him instead of Wijnaldum in the summer.

19.) 08 Sep 2016 04:31:29
Buying dahoud would just mean grudjic who every1 was raving about in prem season falling down pecking order who he has just bought. Left back will b bought unless milner somehow manages to play consistently well there until Jan. Just my opinion.

20.) 08 Sep 2016 18:21:24
yes, hoping Grudjic will get game time, think there is something about him needing so many games to get his work permit? , I think come next summer, there could be one or two first teamers leaving,
this Dahoud is only young, and plays a bit like Couts, who as he improves, will attract the interest of the top two spanish clubs,
so lots to look forward to, Anfield will be rocking on sat evening .

21.) 09 Sep 2016 19:11:35
Should never base signing players on how they perform in internationals.


22.) 12 Sep 2016 14:38:31
I wanted to see Grujic come on instead of Moreno in the last match, but I think he'll get his time given a couple of months with us. It'll be hard for him though -- Can is one of our most valuable players and wasn't in the lineup yesterday and it looks like Stewey will be a favorite of Klopp (particularly when we're winning late in games) . Lucas could be played in that position a few times as well so Grujic will have to continue to impress in training and earn that spot.



28 Aug 2016 13:24:25
Ed002, where is the interest in Dortmund's Pulisic?
Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Dortmund certainly won't be open to selling Pulisic - John Hackworth got Klinsmann to look at him not to long ago and he did arrive at Dortmund when Klipperty was there. The push would likely of come from someone under Zorc to take him there. Perhaps a long term replacement for Reus? Real Madrid and Manchester City looking, but MCFC like Liverpool know that it would be difficult to get a Work Permit without paying well over the odds. I would not expect any move this summer and Liverpool are, for a reason we will not go in to, not in a particularly good position to do any further business in Germany this summer.}

1.) 28 Aug 2016 15:27:04
Thanks very much, I appreciate the time you take out of your day especially at this busy time of the footballing calendar.

2.) 28 Aug 2016 17:03:39
Doesn't need a work permit as is eligible through his Crotian Father.

{Ed002's Note - It is a passport of convenience and he remains a US citizen and also holds a dual passport for the United States. In the UK it means he has to go down the work permit route still. Liverpool could get around it by simply meeting the criteria for a work permit.}

3.) 28 Aug 2016 17:32:30
Can i just say it is incredible the extent of your knowledge edo2.

{Ed002's Note - Perhaps he is not the only one in such a situation? I am in a not dissimilar situation myself.}

4.) 28 Aug 2016 22:18:59
Excellent, more clues to ed002! I still think ed002 is verheijen in disguise.! :p.

Just a quick reminder that the U23s are playing tomorrow night away at West Brom . The match is on lfctv if anyone is interested in watching the game.


1.) 27 Feb 2017 12:08:27
Very interested in watching it but I won't be paying a subscription fee. Not because it isn't worth it (I have been to see the academy live in the flesh) but out of principal.

The club do not need to charge for it (it probably makes a menial sum in football terms) but it is just another way to shaft the fans for every last penny.

I am a big fan of FSG, but lfctv subscription was just greed.

2.) 27 Feb 2017 12:52:30
But it's a Business MK, they have to squeeze the fans for every last penny if they want to turn a profit.

3.) 27 Feb 2017 13:11:25
Can you get LFCTV on pay per view?

4.) 27 Feb 2017 13:53:34
You want a service from Lfc, for what possible reason should they give it away for free?

5.) 27 Feb 2017 15:40:43
I pay for it and think it's great - get to re-watch matches anytime i want and/ or 10mins highlights for when I can't watch the game (rarely) . Plus get to catch up on all the u23s and u18s and extra features. They put a lot of work into it and I for one think it's worth every penny (but then I can't get to anfield much as live overseas so may feel differently vs someone paying for match tickets every week) .

6.) 27 Feb 2017 20:42:30
Every club has a subscription charge for thier TV. Y would it be different at Liverpool?

7.) 27 Feb 2017 21:07:22
That's capitalism, Waro and every big club does it cos there is a market for it. Get used to it.



24 Feb 2017 09:32:56
Sorry everyone, I didn't realise that the U23s played the other day against Nike Academy.
They won 4-0 anyway in the friendly and the scorers were Ojo, Stewart and Toni Gomes (x2). Apparently Wilson had a couple of assists and played well as always. I'm not sure what else to add really as there's not much I'm able to say.
Anyway, the next game is definitely against West Brom next Tuesday in the Premier League Cup.


1.) 24 Feb 2017 14:48:48
You are doing an excellent job Red Man. Nightly appreciated.

2.) 24 Feb 2017 15:46:14
Thanks mate, it's something I enjoy so it's no problem.

3.) 24 Feb 2017 16:04:14
Agree with Maths - good job 👊.



20 Feb 2017 19:21:07
The U23s unfortunately lost yesterday to bottom of the league Derby. The star players lile Ojo, Wilson and Woodburn weren't playing as I believe they were at the training camp in Spain with the first team. This meant that a realatively young, inexperienced side played. It was a 90th minute winner for Derby which is always very painful to lose but hopefully the boys can learn and improve from it.
A disappointing result all round and it pretty much confirms that we won't be winning the premier league 2 but it was an outside shot even before the game yesterday.
Next up is West Brom away on Tuesday 28th in the Premier League Cup which we are right in the mix for.


1.) 21 Feb 2017 07:15:12
Thanks for the update mate 👍.



13 Feb 2017 17:59:22
Good result for the U23s against Huddersfield in the Premier League Cup yesterday in a game which they won 6-2.
It was a strong team that played as Woodburn, Trent AA, Stewart, Wilson and Ojo started and they were all excellent in a very one sided game.
Woodburn scored our first goal early on and he set up the second goal which was scored by Virtue. Harry Wilson then grabbed his goal a few minutes before half time and then Ojo scored right on the stroke of half time to make the score 4-0.
In the second half, we came out of the blocks strongly again and Harry Wilson scored his second early on. The intensity dropped after that which can be accepted really as we were 5 up at the time.
Our defence had very little to deal with but Huddersfield did manage to grab two consolations before the end. Woodburn scored our sixth in the closing minutes of the game with a beauty. You can see the goal on Liverpool FC's Instagram page.
Glad to see Woodburn scoring, assisting and pretty much dominating the game. Great performance all round and this result sums up a good weekend for the club.
Next game is Derby at home on Sunday. Derby are bottom of the league so on paper this game should be a win but we know that football doesn't go that way. It's also on lfctv for those who can't make it to the game.


1.) 14 Feb 2017 02:48:02
Thanks very much for that RedMan! Unfortunately living in Ireland I can't get to games too easily, can I ask what system the U23's play? From what i've read on here it's a similar system and style but more specifically how do the guys line up? Ojo left, Wilson right and Woodburn in the centre?
Cheers for your post, love hearing how these guys are doing!

2.) 14 Feb 2017 07:50:11
The last game looked more like a 4-3-3 and in most games Stewart often sits base of midfield and Matty Virtue often the box to box and third midfielder often Ejaria. Upfront looked to be Woodburn left, Ojo centre and Wilson right but they were very fluid.

I've also seen Woodburn play a more Llalana type role (ie. advanced/ creative midfield) in some of the recent games, and then Brewster upfront. I wouldn't be surprised to see Woodburn being developed for that sort of role going forward.

3.) 14 Feb 2017 08:54:20
Yes the system is similar to that of the first team. It's usually Ojo and Wilson on the flanks with a striker through the middle. Although, there is no reluctance to change in a game as Ojo went up front against Arsenal at half time to partner Brewster.

4.) 14 Feb 2017 09:42:56
Thanks zimbo nice analysis there.

5.) 14 Feb 2017 14:51:24
Keep an eye on Brewster, he has the making of a great striker.

6.) 14 Feb 2017 15:25:50
Cheers DaRed and thanks for the updates. Think our youngsters are lookin good and wouldn't be surprised to see Matty Virtue being given a chance to train with 1sts at some point too. Seems a good all rounder from what I've seen?

Of them all I was (and still am) very excited about Ojo but Woodburn looks to be edging ahead of late with his ability to pass, score, tackle and create. Think he has great potential as a no.10 myself.



06 Feb 2017 20:53:25
Here's the weekly U23s, sorry it's a little late!
We beat Spurs yesterday afternoon 3-2 and we came back from 2-0 down. An excellent result for the young boys and hopefully one that can give us a bit of momentum and lift us to catch Everton.
We fielded a strong lineup with the likes of Alexander-Arnold, Woodburn, Ojo, Gomez, Stewart and Wilson starting.
Harry Wilson got us back into it by scoring a penalty won by Trent Alexander-Arnold then Ojo scored a beauty just after half time to equalise. This boy has got some potential!
Stewart scored the winner late on as Alexander-Arnold assisted.
I'm not sure who got man of the match but there were a number of excellent performances. On a side note, Wilson's goal took him his goal tally to 22 for the season, not bad eh?
Huddersfield away is up next in the Premier League Cup on Sunday.


1.) 06 Feb 2017 21:11:10
Wilson should be starting against Spurs.

2.) 06 Feb 2017 21:32:22
He should certainly be in the squad imo mate, perhaps a starting place would be too much of a jump right now. Alexander-Arnold is the one I believe should be starting.

3.) 07 Feb 2017 11:19:01
Why would it be too much. He cannot be worse than Lallana and he is an actual winger. Play him on the left. He has pace and eye for a goal, What more you want from a winger? Unless you don't play these youngsters you are never going to see their real talent.

I'd imagine we would have to pay over the odds to get him.

Only time will tell I guess, but I really hope we can keep him! I think it all depends on how we do this season so these last 4 or 5 months are huge for us

Realistically I would demand £70m+ for Couts. He's still young and his performances are getting better and better and his consistency is also improving massively. Especially if Barcelona and PSG are interested as well

I think a reliable centre back to partner Matip is priority. Lovren can be excellent at times but he's a bit too inconsistent which let's him down unfortunately. Howedes maybe?
I agree that a pacey attacker (especially if couts leaves) is needed as without Mane we look a shadow of our usual selves. Julian Brandt here?
I think only one full back is needed and it is this lad on loan at Nice who can cover both full backs, Pereira. For the first season he can play right back and Milner can continue at left back (as that for me is his best position) and then the following season or the end of next season Trent AA should be ready to start in the first team.
I think a lot depends on formation really as if we play a 433 then that should be adequate but if we play a 4231 then another forward is needed so if sturridge as well as couts leaves goes then a striker is needed so perhaps this is Mariano.
I haven't really thought about this before so it's all off the top of my head so don't hammer my suggestions too much!
