Do we hold any interest in leon Goretzka, this guy looks a ready made player for klopps system.


{Ed002's Note - No, there has been no approach made by Liverpool - although there is plenty of interest from elsewhere. Barcelona and Juventus are more likely destinations than England.}

1.) 08 Nov 2017 10:38:43
With Emre likely to be joining Juventus and Coutinho to Barcelona you would think Goretzka would be a high priority option to replace one of them. But hey, logic is not our best suit when it comes to the transfer market.

2.) 08 Nov 2017 11:32:13
Goretzka is a good player but I'm not sure he is what we need. He is similar to Emre Can who is being allowed to leave by Klopp for not fitting what we need.

I think Klopp will look to someone more technically gifted in my opinion. Someone in the mould of Lemar, Brandt or Meyer. Coutinho is currently used as both a wide forward and an atracking midfielder occassionally. So we need to sign a replacement who can also play both positions. Meyer is looking like the favourite based on Ed002's comments thus far. It wouldn't disappoint me at all if we went back to Rafa Silva though. History of interest from us, and he would be ideal on either wing or in an attacking midfield role with his excellent dribbling and vision.

3.) 08 Nov 2017 20:59:06
He's off to Barcelona.



24 Aug 2017 13:54:19
People are reporting draxlers agent has been in talks with liverpool should coutinho go through.


1.) 24 Aug 2017 14:11:16
Hello eds I seen .....

{Ed002's Note - This is the Liverpool page - please don't ask about random players and why the club has no interest in them.}

2.) 24 Aug 2017 14:23:05
Rumour that Draxler's agent was at the game last night. although he is Firmino's agent aswell.

3.) 24 Aug 2017 14:40:07
I don't know if draxler would be my choice as a replacement however as an addition to what we already have id welcome the signing.

4.) 24 Aug 2017 15:02:28
Why would his agent be there? We don't have any interest in Draxler as eds has explained.

5.) 24 Aug 2017 15:26:28
Can I sue Lfc for blindness? when Bobby big teeth scored that fourth, the stadium lights reflecting on those white tombstones frazzled me eyes. Off work now looking like Dave blunkett.

6.) 24 Aug 2017 16:01:02
Think Draxlers agent is hawking him round a few clubs.
Apparently he was at Bayern the other night too.

7.) 24 Aug 2017 18:55:44
Spot on, Liver. Agents and clubs hawk their players all over so there not much new there. Ed's have said that we are not interested in Draxler nor were we ever interested when his name propped up in Jan. Nothing more to see here.

8.) 24 Aug 2017 22:18:10
Roller, I would sooner have nice big white teeth instead of them looking like a tarmaccers rake!

9.) 25 Aug 2017 04:47:40
Roller are you getting a golden labrador or Alsatian.



21 Aug 2017 11:48:13
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.

Do you think can will continue to get game time, or will we start using players that have a future here.


1.) 13 Nov 2017 19:43:01
Excellent question mate. You have to field your strongest side everytime but if you know that one of your main player's is off in as soon as he can then what do you do? Me personally I'd play him until his form dip's.

2.) 13 Nov 2017 22:13:01
Problem here is, should he keep getting played and the other lads know he wants out, they might have issues with that, I know I would if I was a loyal player then you've got Can wanting out yet starting every game, it'd make me ask questions I must admit but I do agree with Barry, keep playing him until he gives us an excuse to drop him.

3.) 13 Nov 2017 23:19:01
With Lallana back Can wouldn't get much game time anyway, it's a moot point.

4.) 14 Nov 2017 09:09:34
If can starts the match it's coz klopp thinks he's the best fit for the team. For me if we are winning 3 nil and 20 mins to go he should be first considered for being subbed to allow the younger guys get some game time.

5.) 14 Nov 2017 11:17:34
Excellent idea mate.

6.) 14 Nov 2017 11:47:08
I don't see why we should cut off our nose to spite our face.

If Can is the best available option (and he will be at times), he is contracted to the club for the next 7 months and should play. I wouldn't start phasing him out the match day squad until we have no chance of winning something or CL qualification is assured.

7.) 14 Nov 2017 17:35:44
We play the best team to get the result, period - if Can is giving his all and is also the right man for the job then play him, if he’s not playing like he’s committed, then he doesn’t play.

Right now he’s playing like he’s committed, so should be considered. Having said that I think our current best midfield is Hendo, Gini, Lallana anyway (in a 4-3-3). If Hendo is injured then Can should start at base of midfield.

8.) 14 Nov 2017 17:36:39
There would be always 2 CM regardless of what Lallana does and where he plays. One of the CM is Emre Can.
Lallana and Can are two different players completely unrelated in what they are asked to do. Can has been playing the sitting role recently and I doubt Lallana is a good choice to play as a DM.



05 Sep 2017 10:28:02
Just had a text from my old man who told me coutinho is thinking of refusing to play in the champions league to force through a move in january.

We should have cashed in on the reptile.


1.) 05 Sep 2017 11:14:36
This sort of rumour is awful. How is Coutinho 'a reptile' because people are sharing a story which is almost certainly false?

Quit with the character assassination, stop believing every bit of nonsense you hear and just wait and see what actually happens.

2.) 05 Sep 2017 11:23:57
Sadly I agree demicus. I spent all summer hoping we would keep hold of him but the day the window slammed shut I kinda regretted not cashing in on him. If this is true then let him sit on the bench for the next four years. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Someone should show pipco a unicef video and then ask him about his "great sadness" what an insult to the working people who buy season tickets with their hard earned wages. This guy earns £150.000.00 per week for playing football. I blame Barcelona and Phil advisors. I didn't think pc was like this.

3.) 05 Sep 2017 11:28:54
It's from the Spanish media.

4.) 05 Sep 2017 11:33:38
Unless your old man is Philip coutinho I wouldn't take much notice.

5.) 05 Sep 2017 11:36:53
Is this from his "family member" again lol.
I read an article about something like this yesterday, it mentioned his family member saying this and that but later went on to say it was a friend.
Point is, the writer like all journos are trying to get their bs "story" seen so basically lie.
In other words and I'm not mocking you or your age, but you need to learn not to believe everything you read (I'm still guilty of it from time to time) .
If you don't see it on the official LFC website or on a reputable website like The Daily Mirror's (joking), please assume it's a fabricated story to sell papers or receive clicks - your life will be a breeze then.

6.) 05 Sep 2017 13:34:10
This is absolutely correct. Coutinho is a reptilian alien. many footballers are. Ozil the most obvious one. :)

7.) 05 Sep 2017 16:16:42
Why not wait until the weekend and see if Klopp says he is fit.
After that can see if he refuses to play or he puts 100% into his performances.
No one knows what he will do but himself.
Up until the transfer request went in everyone near to the player and club said he is a top professional and the transfer request came out of the blue. No one really expected it.
Let’s stand by the lad until he refuses to play/ goes no strike etc. We used to support our own not call them for everything every chances we get.
It’s becoming a little bit sad.



03 Sep 2017 16:23:09
With emre possibly leaving as early as January is there any chance of us giving redbull abut extra and they might let naby come here earlier? Depending on how they are doing in the league, champions league etc?


1.) 03 Sep 2017 16:33:14
I remember when there was talk of the same happening with Origi a few January's back. can't see what situation they would be happy to let him leave early?

2.) 03 Sep 2017 16:54:13
Keita in January is not going to happen. The deal is for the transfer window of 2018. It was confirmed by the club and nothing about that is going to change.

3.) 03 Sep 2017 17:17:01
Here's a possible scenario. Can will sign a new contract with an understanding that he'll be allowed to move on if a suitable bid comes in for him, next summer. What's in it for the club? After what we all saw this summer, Can is definitely worth more than the 25million on offer. More like 40-50million. So the club makes a bigger profit. What's in it for Can? He gets a good pay rise on his new lfc contract, from which to ask a new pay rise from summer bidders. And his percentage of the new summer transfer fee would be the same amount as a signing on fee anyway (if he did not sign a renewal with lfc) . And the best reason for both parties to do this is a mutual "golden handshake" for services rendered.

Am I reaching? Could be. I can't understand otherwise how the bean counters at LFC would allow the contract to run down with zero residual value. Refusing 25million now and accepting 0$ in the summer is like spending 25million on him for his final year - the same as Neymar's salary at PSG, 500,000.00 per week. Doesn't make much sense.

4.) 03 Sep 2017 17:32:58
Read an article earlier that said depending no on how RBL are doing in the champions league, cups and domestic league it may happen in January.

5.) 03 Sep 2017 18:33:48
Might not make much sense Ra but Emre won't be giving up what will be a massive signing on bonus to take a couple of grand more wages.
In addition, having to pay a whopping transfer fee may put off such clubs, and he might find himself without Juve + other top clubs interest.
If anything, the best situation for him personally is to asses his options come January/ June and sign on again with us if his other options are not still interested. Thereby getting increases wages and a signing on fee with us.



31 Aug 2017 17:11:36
Van dijk is going chelsea.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 17:17:07
Why mate?

2.) 31 Aug 2017 17:36:17
You've said this numerous times and still it's not true.



31 Aug 2017 10:00:44
Anybody interested in clyne? Id love to see him sold and let joe and trent battle for the position.
Clyne and 50 million for vvd sounds good.

Not what we need at all, i understand he's a good player, but we have kieta coming in and that defense needs sorting. the owners should put a ban on signing attacking talent till that table football defense and that subbuteo goalkeeper gets adressed.
