So it looks like Ancelloti will be leaving Bayern at the end of the season.

I remember you mentioning something about Klopp wanting to manage Bayern or vica versa.

Do you think there will be an approach from Bayern for Klopp if Ancelloti does leave?



{Ed002's Note - Yes it is on the cards that CA will be leaving a year early and Bayern are indeed considering their options. Whilst Klopp did want the job this will not be good timing and will be a year ahead of previous thoughts. Right now I would not expect an approach.}

1.) 27 Sep 2017 16:25:33
Then maybe we can have a exchange with Bayern.

2.) 27 Sep 2017 19:25:59
Klopp's profile has taken a serious beating and will not be on top 3 of BM radar.

They will be looking at Hoffenheim mgr and others.

3.) 28 Sep 2017 02:42:33

Klopp's profile has "taken a serious beating"?

How exactly? Took a struggling side from 8th to 4th, plays exciting creative football. We've had some struggles recently, but any idea his stock has thus fallen seems petty and silly.

4.) 28 Sep 2017 07:12:20
Klopp can't seem to set up a defence so his rep has been hit surely. The UK media have fallen out of love with him as have some fans.

Hope he stays though.

5.) 28 Sep 2017 14:22:40
Ancellotti has just been sacked!

6.) 28 Sep 2017 14:35:21
Before I say, I just want to clarify before anyone has a go at me I do not want Klopp to leave or am I trying to slate our Manager. Ed01 in the unlikely event Klopp goes to Bayern who realistically would you have to replace him at the club? Asking really to get your thoughts on Managers you think highly of after your recent article about overrated managers.

{Ed001's Note - I honestly cannot think of a realistic choice.}

7.) 28 Sep 2017 15:00:54
Rafa Benitez? Would jump at the chance to return to the club, and he would bloody do something about our awful defense.
And before people jump on my back, I want to clarify I do not want Klopp to leave. BUt its inevitable he will leave at some point for Bayern, so we need to be prepared for that.

8.) 28 Sep 2017 15:25:55
Good Shout Buzzer can't think of any other option apart from him to be honest. Matter of time before he falls out with Ashley at Newcastle so I agree a reckon he would definitely be up for a return to us.

9.) 28 Sep 2017 15:43:19
As our Sporting director is lacking in experience, I'd replace Klopp with a more experienced manager. They could also then act as a mentor for Pepjin Lijnders.

Someone who is exceptional at the job, a seasoned veteran, but relatively realistic; like Jorge Jesus, Mauricio Sarri or Carlo Ancelotti.

I'd love Allegri or Simeone but they are not going to leave the clubs they are at, for Liverpool mid season.

{Ed002's Note - Super Stevie Nicol is available.}

10.) 28 Sep 2017 15:56:48
No thanks 002! Nicol was a great player, but he is a little bit of a mouth piece nowadays! Haha. He has been publically scratching towards a fair few current players as well!

{Ed002's Note - You don't think a dream team of SSN and SSG would work then?}

11.) 28 Sep 2017 16:31:22
Can i gouge my eyes out instead?

12.) 28 Sep 2017 17:08:22
Tom werner says our new sporting director is world class . After his first summer in charge of transfers world class at what?

13.) 28 Sep 2017 18:18:24
Ancelloti was my first choice over Klopp, would be interesting to see what team would be had CA been appointed.

{Ed025's Note - a boring one..

14.) 28 Sep 2017 19:08:00
Klopp can set up a defence, he's done it before. Lack of transfers is our undoing as it has been for years. Way before he came.

15.) 28 Sep 2017 19:23:22
IF and that's a big if klopp leaves id like the german coach lowe, id love poch tbh rbl manager or go big for simeone.

16.) 28 Sep 2017 23:10:38
Silva from Watford anyone?

17.) 29 Sep 2017 01:12:36
Leonardo Jardim?

18.) 29 Sep 2017 00:00:47
Disappointed in Klopp. Going to Bayern from Dortmund seems like such a betrayal, same as all those players who moved. Don't know how others see it, especially German fans? Maybe it's expected?

Also feel like the "if I only coach three clubs. " speech last year was a load of horsesh1t.

{Ed001's Note - what are you talking about? He has gone nowhere yet.}

19.) 29 Sep 2017 08:05:49
Unbelievable. Ancelotti gets sacked and Robboz has already pegged Klopp as Bayern's new manager.

20.) 29 Sep 2017 08:14:37
From what I've read here, it sounds like it's only a matter of time.

Okay, I will reserve my disappointment until he does.

21.) 29 Sep 2017 13:31:59
If Klopp does get sacked there's this young Northern Irish managed in Scotland at the moment doing well

Brodgers or something like that.

He might be worth a shout.

{Ed025's Note - i could manage celtic and win that league dawn..

22.) 29 Sep 2017 14:14:09
That was a joke btw. didn't think i had to qualify that.

{Ed025's Note - i did get that mate..

23.) 29 Sep 2017 14:29:10
Maybe we could go for Koeman once he gets removed.

Sorry Ed25, could resist 😜😜.

{Ed025's Note - im better than him i can assure you drogie..

24.) 29 Sep 2017 15:55:26
Got his initial team selection wrong last night mate. IMO.

{Ed025's Note - every week for me drogie mate, playing rooney is his main flaw..

25.) 29 Sep 2017 23:09:52
Seriously discussing klopp replacement? Whilst he has many failings he is surely the best option at this time.

If he can sort the defence out then who knows how far he can take us.

26.) 30 Sep 2017 23:11:44
Flash, are you dim?

Read Ed2's response to the first post in this thread.

Apparently Klopp wanted the Bayern job, although at this point it is a year ahead of what the previously thought timescale might have been. This sounds to me like Klopp may be off after next season, or thereabouts.

The haters can give this a thumbs down all they want but it's there for all to see.

27.) 01 Oct 2017 15:56:13
XABI wants to manage! ! :-)

28.) 01 Oct 2017 16:22:00
I think you meant signing Rooney ed025.

29.) 03 Oct 2017 00:17:25
This is about the only statement that Ed002 has made about Klopp that I genuinely can't see. Especially when he does things like this. It's just my opinion of course.

15 Dec 2017 13:12:26
Quick question for Ed002.

Lots of talk on the radio today saying that we will be back in for VVD in Jan, with City also looking. Ed 001 mentioned that we probably won't, now I trust Ed001 over some of these presenters all day long.

Have Liverpool made any attempts to reastablish their business relationship with Southampton? There have been quite a few transactions between the two clubs so just wondered what the situation is.



{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool speaking to Southampton at all since they apologised for the illegal approach and meeting with Klopp and they withdrew all interest in Van Dijk. The complaint still sits on file.}

1.) 15 Dec 2017 13:48:53
Thanks Ed002.

2.) 15 Dec 2017 13:57:47
I heard a solid rumour that VVD was definitely going to Citeh in Jan - deal already done.

{Ed002's Note - There is no "deal done", but he is on their lengthy list of CBs that I shared.}

3.) 15 Dec 2017 16:30:48
What KLOPP has to watch out for is the season doesn’t fall flat by the end of February, can’t afford to be making changes in the F. A. CUP game against EVERTON.
To me KLOPP looks as if he has taking his eye off the ball in the league, and is putting all his eggs in one basket in the CHAMPIONS LEAGUE, one bad half against PORTO and the questions will really be getting asked. and no I am not anti-KLOPP, I think he’s been a breath of fresh to the club but at this moment as we stand it doesn’t look as if we’ve progressed much apart from changing RODGERS front 3 for his own front 3.

4.) 15 Dec 2017 16:36:18
Having seen his performance against Leicester good luck to City with him.

5.) 15 Dec 2017 17:48:58
Just wondering if there’s a secret code in you message with the random use of capitals wembley78?

6.) 15 Dec 2017 23:07:08
Why the all caps, wembley. We know who Klopp is and so no need to highlight him. Now onto your post, I disagree with the fact that he is putting all his eggs in one basket. That is strange as the season is not even half way yet and we are 4 points off 3rd and in the CL KO stages (something BR failed at) . Klopp takes one game at a time and that is the way it should be. You're reading too much into things, I'm afraid.

Also, comparing him to BR is just wrong. Klopp has taken us forward from the mess we were in with BR as I don't have a short memory. Now if you think he has not cos he has not won a trophy or the PL fast enough for you yet then that is your opinion.

However, he got to two finals including a European final with BR's own players. If that is not improvement in itself then I don't know what is. Also, we are a MUCH better team than when BR left and even a much better team than last season depth wise. In the CL and in the KO stages where anything can happen. Did BR do that? We still need to improve as this team is not yet the finished article.

7.) 16 Dec 2017 10:13:15
Vvd isn't interested in playing at Southampton hence his very average performances lately. I would take him every day of the week over loveren as the bloke is a liability at the back.

8.) 16 Dec 2017 13:49:37
BRover the table doesn’t lie, the reason we are in this situation is because of KLOPP we’re throwing points away left right and centre and we keep making the same mistakes time after time, and as for KLOPP’S quotes yesterday, he wants to be the best of the rest, what is that all about.



10 Dec 2017 23:12:26
I said the other day we should stick with a winning team, especially in a Derby!

For me, the changes should have have been made on Weds against WBA, the team fourth trom bottom!

I was at the match today and whilst we should have one, for me the game would have been put to bed if we'd continued wkth the the team that played so well against Moscow. Playing Henderson was a big mistake in my opinion, yes he's the captain but he's not been playing well and needs to warrant is place again.

The smoker Lovren is moved on the better, once again costing us points with a basic error.


1.) 10 Dec 2017 23:37:57
Totally agree, it's not worth the risk. We can moan about the penalty but if we're 3-0 up by then, it matters little.
Fair enough mane could have squared it and other may have scored still, but this is our derby game, play your best team.

2.) 11 Dec 2017 08:04:52
Klopp has been rotating for weeks now to avoid the exact thing that Conte was moaning about, tiredness after their loss to WH. How do you stick with a winning team when Cou was not fit to start and we are trying to avoid another collapse like last winter? He rotated. The team was never in danger and Mane was the one who cost us.

Also, who's to say that had we played our best team, we would have won? Had Cou played injured and he got hurt even more, you would not be saying what you are saying now so the hindsight BS needs to stop esp. if you do not have the information that the manager has on players'fitness levels during preparations. You cannot analyse a situation without having information. That is simply impossible to do.

3.) 11 Dec 2017 09:16:38
The attack was going nowhere as there is no chemistry among the players.



07 Dec 2017 11:26:48

Wound like you opinion opinion if I may.

Merseyside Derby, I personally think we should stick with same team that beat Spartak last night, agree?


{Ed001's Note - Moreno probably needs a rest and I would personally think Henderson would be a better choice than Wijnaldum. I normally go with the 'never change a winning team' philosophy but all the changes are working wonders at the moment as opponents are unable to prepare and set up to face us.}

1.) 07 Dec 2017 12:54:28
I predict:
Henderson in for Wijnaldum or Can.
Milner or Robertson in for Moreno.
Mignolet in for Karius.

2.) 07 Dec 2017 13:11:48
Henderson will play ping pong with CB n GK and hurt our forward momentum!

{Ed001's Note - you really are a tit. Embarrassing pathetic moronic crap you spout over and over ruining every thread with your idiocy. You said this stupidity once, now shut up and shove it up your backside, no one wants to read your gormless comments messing up every thread and turning a decent convo into your bitching about a player who you don't have the footballing intelligence to discuss. Just leave the football talk to the adults because you haven't a clue.}

3.) 07 Dec 2017 13:16:11
Milner to come in for Moreno. Klopp won’t drop Wiji for anyone!

4.) 07 Dec 2017 13:22:39
Salah, Mane, Firmino and Coutinho must be looking forward to another goal fest.

5.) 07 Dec 2017 13:49:23
Defo agree regardfmg Moreno, was at the match last night and he looked to be in a lot of pain. He tried to shake off the knock but was unable to do so.

I thought Gini played well last night along with Can.

6.) 07 Dec 2017 14:20:07
RelaxBrudder you haven't got a clue about football at all keep of the fourm your embarrassing edds your spot on with your remarks all he's doing is talking crap and putting players down. Great work as usual edds.

7.) 07 Dec 2017 14:20:15
Hendo will 100% come in for the derby, in my opinion for Can. I was at the game last night a few rows from the pitch and I was surprised how much Gini actually talks and noses the players around, he had a right to at Milner for not helping down the touch line, it was just good to see when we were about 5 up at the time. I'd like to Robertson play if Moreno is out but it will likely be Milner with it being a derby.

8.) 07 Dec 2017 14:25:15
Ed, if you were watching the Live Chat last night you’d have seen Relax and his partner in crime SG8 really shine as the pair of clowns they are, ruin a good chat that pair.

{Ed001's Note - I don't think I have even seen SG8 but relax just talks utter nonsense all the time.}

9.) 07 Dec 2017 15:00:34
Relax has to be a troll.

I’d like to see the same team start apart from Hendo in for Gini to give him a rest (sitting a little deeper alongside Can), then play Robbo in for Moreno due to his injury.

I’d also like to see us start a similar team to Spartak most weeks, but then make substitutes a little earlier to rest Mane, Firmino, Salah and Coutinho as required.

10.) 07 Dec 2017 17:46:55
its very easy to spot a troll especially in the live chat, even when you are wining 5-0 they always find something to moan about just PATHETIC always ignore these idiots.

11.) 07 Dec 2017 20:30:04
A moaner/ trol will always moan/ troll. It is like an emotional trigger for such people. However I would not be too hard on Relax. Why? I go to the This Is Anfield site and you should read the utter bile and abuse that Hendo gets and trust me, Relax is schoolboy compared to the abject and brainless rants they spout about Hendo. As Ed said, many whine about Hendo, a player they lack the footballing intelligence to discuss. (I'm keeping that one, Ed. )

12.) 07 Dec 2017 23:24:23
just a feelilng but i think there will be 4 changes for sunday, i think trent arnold for gomez, hendo for can/ gini, chamberlain for salah/ mane and ofcourse the usual mignolet for karius.
we are still playing another 3 games in the upcoming 7 days then 5 days until the arsenal game then 4 games in 10 days from the arsenal game so i expect klopp to rotate as he's been doing.

13.) 07 Dec 2017 22:11:56
Ed001 when I read your first comment, my immediate reaction was to laugh so hard i sprayed my drink over my computer screen, my second reaction was to say "tell me what you really think":-)

{Ed001's Note - my first comment? I didn't think my mention of Moreno was that funny personally ;-)

I did have to retype what I said a few times to remove swear words etc and put it in as nice a way as possible. So I wasn't actually saying what I really think!}



06 Dec 2017 23:28:30
Just back from the match, hats off to the lads, am absolutely brilliant all round performance.

One small detail I liked tonight, don't get me wrong, it didn't pay off or happen every time, but Karius was looking to release the ball and was looking for runners at every opportunity.

Hope Moreno is ok, he seemed to be in a lot of pain.

Great night, Everton next.


{Ed0333's Note - Doesent Karius look to release the ball early at every opportunity? Just one reason why he should be given the gloves full time.

1.) 06 Dec 2017 23:37:23
A absolutely ed 333, as soon as he received the ball his first intstinct was to look up. I’d seriously give him a run of games with Ward as his back up.

{Ed0333's Note - To be honest I’d have Stephane Henchoz in goal before Migs. I think most Liverpool fans agree Migs doesn’t deserve the gloves and it’s Karius or Wards time. Shame Kloppo doesn’t see what we see.

2.) 07 Dec 2017 00:29:46
He's just prepping. Thank God him being goal for the Champions League so far has been a success. He will become our number one.

3.) 07 Dec 2017 00:48:58
Completely agree. If u watch his jumping technic for Willian's goal, it's shockingly bad : he used his left hand instead of the right as the ball was heading towards his right side so he couldn't stretch anymore. Basic staff. I'm even more shocked at our insistance with Achterberg, he should be picking those basic mistakes. And on the training videos, we can see that it's JA who is kicking the balls to the keepers. isn't it better to let to one good shooter of our team and let the goal keeper coach observe the mistakes.?

4.) 07 Dec 2017 01:22:46
karius was good tonight, except the sweeper keeper move that went wrong, but he made some decent saves, one good save. I like him, I think he will get better, the more confident he gets, that confidence will come with game time. I appreiciate what migs did last season and the important penalties he has saved but his time is up. Dudek was never given this much time and he was twice the keeper migs is, Karius for no1 it just makes sense all round.

5.) 07 Dec 2017 05:00:05
Hardly the worst sweeper keeper move we’ve seen this season 😂 Migs got very lucky when he should have been sent off against Stoke.

6.) 07 Dec 2017 13:04:07
Karius looks like a goalie, mingolet doesnt, he's awkward catching, jumping, kicking, diving.
I think there is mistakes in Karius too by the way but he needs experience, only way to get it is to play.

7.) 07 Dec 2017 13:06:17
Henchoz was a great stand in goalie! He was even 'handy' when he didn't have the gloves on ;)



29 Nov 2017 23:34:36
Didn't get to see the game, a few saying we rode our luck a bit which is fair enough, you need a bit of luck at times.

Anyway, I'll take 3-0 away at Stoke on a chilly Wednesday night any day of the week.

I've been to Stoke away on a cold night and believe me it's not comfortable.

Great win.


1.) 30 Nov 2017 08:59:52
Drogie - I've been caught in Stoke on a lovely warm midsummer night. It was still an uncomfortable place to be.

{Ed001's Note - agreed. I have been there a lot and it is never a nice place. Their fans are vile as well, they still boo Ramsey for having the temerity to put his leg under Shawcross's stamp!}

2.) 30 Nov 2017 15:16:03
Drogie, you might have also heard that Mo Salah had a decent game, coming on as a sub, ha, masterstroke by Klopp .

Evening Ed002.

You mentioned the deadline Barcelona set regarding Couthino, think the deadline has passed?


{Ed002's Note - It is not a deadline. Barcelona want agreement this month as someone heading the discussions is leaving the club and will be moving to another club. At that point, they will regroup and look at alternatives, but the interest in PC won't suddenly disappear. They have other options and they have to look to them.}

Barcelona didn’t just take what they can when they sold Neymar. If they can’t afford the asking price then walk away. If I walk into a car Showroom selling Austin Martin’s would they just take what they can purely because I want the vehicle but can’t affford it?

We’ve seen the TV deals inflate the price of players over the last few years, you just need to look at average players cost £40m

The clubs are happy to take the money.

Obviously the player will get what he wants, in his move to Barcelona but FSG has to make sure we get every penny we want from Barca. Nothing less will be acceptable and no pathetic player exchange either, unless they give us Messi 😂.

Couldn’t agree more with you Ed001 regarding United.
Arsenal is an interesting one, Wenger, back in the day had a good eye for plucking overseas players for fairly reasonable trenasfer fees.

I think it’s a similar secenario with Klopp, he needs the right players to play the system he wants.


{Ed001's Note - Wenger spent big money, it was somehow reported as reasonable fees, but it was comparatively big money for the time. The likes of Overmars were not cheap, they were bought for big fees. Wiltord was a huge fee when he arrived etc. The problem came when he believed the hype and tried to spend the same amount with no accounting for inflation in the transfer fees. He wasn't buying one or two players either, he was buying a fair few and they were using Beveren as a finishing school for the youngsters. It all went wrong when the belt was tightened and spending was limited.}

16 Dec 2017 18:36:47
Only in recent times have the likes of City, Chelsea (2004 onwards ) etc spent more. . We’ve not won the league for 27 years but have spent serious money. The first opportunity we had to spend Big in one swoop and we blew it on Charlie Adam, Downing, Caroll. Etc.

I think Pep is doing an excellent job mate.


{Ed001's Note - and before that it was Man Utd who outspent us by a significant margin, and Blackburn did too for a short period, then Arsenal spent big etc. We have not been the biggest spenders since Fergie arrived in English football. The biggest spenders generally win the league. When they spend as ridiculously large as City do, it would be nothing short of embarrassing if they didn't win the league, especially for a second time of the obscene amounts they are spending.

However Pep is doing a good job, but how long for? Would he do as good a job if he had the same amount as the rest to spend? I very much doubt it. If every manager got the same amount to spend each season, would he still be top? I don't believe he would, as he struggles to get lesser players to play the way he wants them to.}

Yes Pep has spent money but he’s spent it wisely and outside of a CB, has strengthened where the team needed strengthening. Spending huge doesn’t guarantee success, you only need to look at how much we’ve spent over the years without winning the league.

Guardiola has the team playing how he wants them to play and you can see how he’s installed a winning mentality into the players.

I’ve been a Liverpool fan for over 30 odd years and seen some fantastic teams. I think Pep needs a bit of credit because they are playing some fantastic football.


{Ed001's Note - but we have spent less than the top few, whereas City have spent more, so how can you suggest that us not winning shows that spending money does not work? I mean over the years the top spenders have not been us since the days we were winning league titles.}
