Are we looking to sign per schuurs the young dutch defender?


1.) 21 Aug 2017 16:03:37
He impressed on trial so i believe that we are, not sure how much progress has been made as there is a lot of interest from a number of clubs across Europe.



16 Aug 2017 12:15:36
Eds any interest in ivan perisic? The united link seems to have cooled.


{Ed001's Note - no, why would there be?}

1.) 16 Aug 2017 14:33:00
In my opinion we got a better player in Salah.



30 Jul 2017 10:07:15
Reports are saying we are ready to move in for Barcelona player rafinha, would they sell to us if we are not willing to sell coutinho?


{Ed002's Note - He was offered around previously and Barcelona would certainly be open to including him in a deal for Coutinho as he is very much a fringe player in order to reduce the cash commitment. If enough were offered by Liverpool they may be happy with a straight sale.}

1.) 30 Jul 2017 10:32:08
Might we be interested in him then at this time, seperate to Coutinho?

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona would likely be interested in discussing him in the framework of the Coutinho discussions initially but to the best of my knowledge there has been no talk of him thus far. For the next few days Barcelona has to deal with the Neymar situation.}

2.) 30 Jul 2017 10:51:22
I know this is the Liverpool page, but I feel it impacts coutinho, what is the situation with Neymar?

{Ed002's Note - PSG would like to buy him.}

3.) 30 Jul 2017 10:56:20
Ed although he is a fringe player at Barcelona do you know if he is generally highly thought of in terms if ability at Barcelona and around Europe? I guess Sanchez was surplus to requirements at Barcelona and he turned out ok didn't he.

{Ed002's Note - He has been there about 10 years so they see something in him. I am not sure if he has played for Brazil yet.}

4.) 30 Jul 2017 11:50:11
such an average player, I'd be amazed if this isn't bs.

5.) 30 Jul 2017 12:36:44
Great family heritage but I'd rather break bank for his brother Thiago.

Reckon it's bull. How often do these player swaps materialise as lots of personal things to sort out.

We were supposed to get Sanchez in Suarez one etc. I remember Nunez for Owen too clearly so steer away

Also, I believe Sanchez was forced out of Barcelona by Messi power. He was a great player, and was my worlds best at the time he was at Udinese, so different scenario for me that one.

6.) 30 Jul 2017 12:48:31
He's had caps for Brazil but only 2,doesn't mean anything really as most countries hand out caps for fun. The worry for me is that he's never played regular at Barcelona and he's 24 and the few times I have seen him (not enough to make a good judgement) he's not stood out, not a patch on his brother.

7.) 30 Jul 2017 13:12:22
Bear in mind though that some players flourish when they get a chance to play more regularly or in their best position. Few of us had heard much of Coutinho or Firmini before they came to Liverpool. Also it's not too much disgrace to not be a regular at Barcelona. As long as he's got ability and a decent attitude why not give him a chance.

8.) 30 Jul 2017 15:34:14
Actually, Coutinho was well known across Europe as a young talent (Rafa tried to sign him for us as a teenager), as for Firmino, anyone familiar with the Bundesliga knew about him as he'd been scoring regularly for Hoffenheim for a few years.

9.) 30 Jul 2017 15:37:26
Because you don't replace your best player with someone "to just give them a shot" haha!

That's not how you improve mate!

10.) 30 Jul 2017 15:57:37
Playing for Brazil doesn't mean anything anymore. Fred was a regular starting player and he stunk to high hell, and anyway, I think Ed001 said that the Brazilian national sides are picked by sponsors.

{Ed001's Note - Nike had a contract that was revealed recently, that allowed them to pick the squad for friendlies.}

11.) 30 Jul 2017 16:31:10
What is this 'Messi power'?

Is it that others players egos cannot except that they are good enough, or that Messi calls up the 'footballer of Barcelona ego club' union together, in which he chairs an important meeting in how to force out anyone who comes close to taking over the reign as Barcas best?

12.) 30 Jul 2017 16:37:10
Yes but just because they were involved in a deal doesn't mean they would be a straight replacement for Coutinho. The point I'm making is the profile of Coutinho and Firmino has greatly increased since joining Liverpool. Why do we get such dumb answers sometimes.

13.) 30 Jul 2017 16:34:12
Ed mate, not trying to pin you down, I respect your opinion. If you were a betting man would you sat coutinio is going to leave this year?

{Ed001's Note - I am not a betting man.}

14.) 30 Jul 2017 16:50:33
Agree Razor. I quite like Vázquez at Real. Watched him a few times. He's now where near coutinho level but who really is. I thought when we signed firmino it was preparing for life without coutinho.

Just got to do our best to keep him as long as we can. Be nice to get someone in early that can try and be ready to take over when he leaves.

15.) 30 Jul 2017 17:15:33
Good answer eds. I just need daily reassurance is all mate. Personally think rahifina would be a great signing. Not as bit part deal but straight buy.

16.) 30 Jul 2017 19:31:30
Tbf you'd have to be some player to force your way into the bar a midfield at any point over the last 10 years.

17.) 30 Jul 2017 20:46:32
Rafinha and Vazquez are the new Antonio Nunez. Don't try and pretend they're even capable of replacing Coutinho. To sell a top class player like him and replace him with either of them would be a disastrous move.



10 Jul 2017 15:33:59
Bakayoko the player destined for chelsea has himself liked apost linking him eith liverpool.


{Ed002's Note - Off to Liverpool then. It was bound to come out eventually.}

1.) 10 Jul 2017 15:51:20
Id laugh my head off if he did come to us but can't see it. Just silly rumours.

2.) 10 Jul 2017 16:12:39
Ed002's response was golden haha! :')

3.) 10 Jul 2017 17:22:11
Saw he was bound to MU sometime back.

Looks like he is visiting all places.


4.) 10 Jul 2017 17:36:43
Silly season plus twitter = bollocks.

5.) 10 Jul 2017 19:02:34
Saw Bakayoko in Asda car park, must be on his way.

{Ed025's Note - i think your off your trolley max.. :)

6.) 10 Jul 2017 20:25:03
He will be at Chelsea by next week.

7.) 10 Jul 2017 21:29:45
The tweet said
"Chelsea rejected him, United are hesitating, he's calling everyone, he contacted Liverpool himself. "

But if you look on his twitter page now, it is not in his likes, or at least I couldn’t find it xD

Probably some trip photoshopped it to make everybody go (more) stupid.

8.) 10 Jul 2017 21:50:49
Hope not he is truly overrated.

9.) 11 Jul 2017 02:12:00
We still don't have an out and out goal scorer. Firmino is great no 10 but not a 25+ man. He's highly involved in making goals and is a class act. Still think that to win the league you need someone prolific. Has anyone ever won prem without a 20+ guy? Origi has the potential to be that man and he seems the sort of player could go up a level or two pretty quickly. When you have 5 players on double figures it's not such a problem. I don't know who the answer is.

10.) 11 Jul 2017 13:47:58
I don't see why we need strikers or forward players. Its not as though we struggle for goals really.

11.) 11 Jul 2017 19:24:20
Total goals no but goals in some specific games and scoring regularly are issues. Question is are those not creating or not taking chances. Do remember early season against Watford (? ) Firminho missed a bucket load. With 2 wide men and Coutinho in the middle may offer more variety to break down teams but ultimately only one LFC striker is a 20 a season player and he is an injury risk.

12.) 11 Jul 2017 19:26:19
I agree Nevada, we have goals coming from all over midfield and now with Salah, Even more.
We were 2 goals short of city, 7 goals short of Chelsea and only 8 short of Tottenham (I say "only" because Kane scored 29 goals with 5 being from penalties) which is more than double what our highest scorers got with 0 penalties too)

If we had an out an out striker, the midfielders probably won’t score as much as they will be giving all the assists, Firmino likes to assist goals too.

13.) 11 Jul 2017 23:44:29
I know red Phil. I did say that we have 5/ 6 players on double figures. I know what you're saying, we were league top scorers for ages. Last time we challenged for title (and should have won) we had suarez. If you look back, no one has won prem without a 20+ guy
Fresht was bang on, we do have that guy but hd is so injury prone and doesn't want to push himself too far. DS should be a premier league legend but his situation is starting to look like Jamie redknapps bless him. I'd like to see us with a real bruiser to look after him.

14.) 12 Jul 2017 06:17:29
True superred I get what you mean and to be honest I would still love another Suarez type of forward, but as things stand it can be the last thing we need to worry about.

Suarez was also made x10 better with the partnership of Sturridge. They where just the perfect telepathic partnership.
Who knows, Firmino might now be able to score a lot more this season with Mane and Salah by his side and Couts where he should be - behind.

And the +20 goals to win the league isn’t always fair,
Costa just about got 20 and Chelsea won the league, (and he will be leaving unless the recent media rubbish is somehow true)

Kane got 29 and Spurs couldn't win the league (which actually surprises me still to this day, because of how solid they where defensively! *head spin again*)

But I think the addition of Salah will bring a lot more goals to the side without drastically reducing goals scored from anywhere else.

But it’s all guess work, we don’t know how Salah will do and if our defense doesn't get sorted it won’t matter as we won’t be winning the league still.

15.) 12 Jul 2017 06:22:42
Sorry forgot to add;
It is a damn shame about Sturridge's injury's because y'all are right he could easily be our 20+ goal scorer and would be one of the best strikers in the prem. They need to give him a bionic hip and he needs to try and control his shot power/ speed, he has too much power/ speed for his muscles to be able to stretch quickly enough xD.



10 Jul 2017 08:12:39
Robertson will be finalized by friday. leeds will sign ryan kent aswell.


1.) 10 Jul 2017 09:47:41
I heard Kent was another linked with Nottingham Forest as well and Bogdan.

{Ed002's Note - Certainly Leeds are still keen.}

2.) 10 Jul 2017 10:03:31
How's Robertson working out for your FIFA team, DecimusUK?

3.) 10 Jul 2017 10:04:34
Crazy Kent hasn't been given a chance with the first team yet played well the last two seasons in the championship for a lad of his age. Is he leaving on loan ed or a permanent deal?

4.) 10 Jul 2017 11:57:50
I play 3 cbs smedegaard. can't have clyne and robertson and go for titles can i now. :)

5.) 10 Jul 2017 12:30:17
I honestly cannot believe we're letting Kent go!
If this lad can't get a chance with the first team, then who can? What kind of message are we sending to other young lads / potential additions to youth team? I don't remember a youngster who was given a proper chance to become a team regular since Spearing.

6.) 10 Jul 2017 12:47:17
Difference is Spearing was poor. And do TAA and Woodburn not fall into the youngsters getting a change category?

7.) 10 Jul 2017 17:53:35

8.) 10 Jul 2017 21:55:35
Kent did well at championship level but I believe there were concerns that he has a tendency to drift out of matches and not impose himself on them.

9.) 10 Jul 2017 22:57:49
Kent isn't good enough, that's the simple reality.

11 Aug 2017 18:16:41
Adrian Rabiot would make a good acquisition. what's the chances of psg letting him go? I think he's reluctant to sign a new contract or he was a few month back.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has no interest in him.}



10 Aug 2017 14:36:26
Eds, is it safe to say we want 4 players? Vvd, Kieta, Ox and luan?

These are the players we were linked with 2/ 3 months ago. Seems nothing has changed.


{Ed002's Note - I can't answer questions like that.}

1.) 10 Aug 2017 15:22:42
I'd be happy with just Keita and VVD and keep Coutinho of course. LUan and AOC would not start in a fully fit squad anyways so why spend 60 odd million on squad players when Kent, Solanke and Woodburn can adequately fill in?

2.) 10 Aug 2017 17:34:21
To be fair, if we keep Can and Couts, just VVD would be fine for me.



04 Aug 2017 12:44:03
Hoffenhiem then. worst draw possible. If we fail against them coutinho is off. As will be my wifes head.




02 Aug 2017 21:18:26
Danny Ward looks like a number 1 in the making.


1.) 02 Aug 2017 21:37:51
He was decent actually. Shame he didn't get at least one pen save though. I was quite surprised at how well we played tonight actually. Wasn't great by any means, but with Athletico beating Napoli at walking pace yesterday whilst we put in a proper practice run against Bayern, it was always going to be a different game tonight. The fact that a good number of our best players were simply left out to rest them says it all. We needed to play a second game in 24 hours with our season starting imminently; unlike Athletico. Still took them to penalties though!

Very good warm up this pre-season though and I think Firmino just staked his claim for taking penalties this season assuming Milner is dropped to a squad role. Unbeaten in 90 minutes going into the season despite a lot of new players and formations being tried out. Let's kick this season off with a bang!

2.) 02 Aug 2017 21:44:44
Had the mates round so was flicking between us and Celtic. I saw one amazing save in the first half. How did he do in the second half? Going to watch the full game tonight.

3.) 02 Aug 2017 22:39:57
He played well right through pens are a lottery so wouldn't judge him for not saving one (Not saying anyone has) and he could do nothing about the goal either in my opinion from what I seen he made a great save just quicker reactions came from Bare on the follow up. That was my take on it anyway.



02 Aug 2017 11:30:04
Looks like neymat to psg is actually happening. Brace ourselves for a huge coutinho bid. 110 million pounds should do it i imagine.


1.) 02 Aug 2017 11:44:49
I still would not sell at any price. Its not about the money but more about letting the elite know LFC are no longer a selling club. let's be honest, Coutinho is our best player and who pulls the strings from midfield and our creative outlet. Selling him will bump up the club's coffers but gives us no guarantee that the replacement will be even half as good as Couts.

2.) 02 Aug 2017 11:49:02
It does matter if we sold him for 150m, we can't replace him. I don't see any player out there that is as good as Couts, that are a) available and b) would join us.

3.) 02 Aug 2017 12:01:08
Manes are best player. Coutinho is replaceable if we do it right

Did juventus come across as a selling club or someone who took the puss outta United.

They swapped pogba for gifts in. If we swap coutinho for Lemar or keita, similar price and quality we won't lose any face and still have a redicouls team.

And if doesn't work out in a couple of years we can use him as bait for the inevitable bid on a saints player.

I don't see how sighning a young english versitile player with a work ethic like his could be a bad thing. and he's talented. We could end up playing 60 games this season.
