Question for the eds. Do you see us trying to complete any business before the WC kicks off. Seeing as our transfer window closes 2 weeks before everyone else? Or do you see the summer window being even more frantic towards the deadline?


{Ed001's Note - I expect Premier League clubs to look to do business early, though it will no doubt be a frantic rush after the WC as well.}

1.) 23 Feb 2018 09:33:58
Morning Ed, I have been reading some of the midfield suggestions you have made and the type of players we might target. I understand the urgent need to liven up the midfield and bring the much needed energy. My worry is agains't teams like Spurs, and City they will pin us back at the end of games when we drop off and we still won't be able to control games.

I don't know as well how those type of players will help with the breaking down of the so called park the bus teams, Man U etc. In an ideal world you want the player to have great energy, awareness
and ability on the ball but that probably isn't possible. I think I slightly favour the more technically gifted player, we really need someone to to be able to control a game.

Maybe we could target both types of player for the midfield? But as we also need goals and assists from the midfield and the ability to cover the front 3 it is going to take some real quality recruitment (and plenty dosh) .

{Ed001's Note - Ndidi is very good on the ball and still young enough to improve.}

2.) 23 Feb 2018 10:25:34
ok thanks for the reply.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

3.) 23 Feb 2018 11:01:59
Ed am I right in thinking Ndidi is a player you have suggested and would like, and not a player we have shown any interest in yet mate?

{Ed001's Note - yes you are right. I wish we would go for him, but we have shown no interest.}

4.) 23 Feb 2018 12:29:58
Ed1 it's Gary Medel all over again haha.

{Ed001's Note - very much so.}

5.) 23 Feb 2018 12:48:32
Yes Ndidi!

6.) 23 Feb 2018 13:26:26
Thoughts on Kovacic/ Ceballos Ed1? And out of interest have we shown interest in Kovacic (I know we have Ceballos) . Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - not in Kovacic, who has not performed well since moving to Madrid. Ceballos we have, I am sceptical on him, never really impressed me as anything special. I have not seen a lot of him though, so I could have just missed what he offers.}

7.) 23 Feb 2018 13:43:43
Thanks for the reply Ed1. I would agree with you on Kovacic this season. When I saw some of the games he played in last season I thought he doing alright, just my opinion though and I didn't see every game he played in.

{Ed001's Note - I didn't see him much last season either, even while in Spain as the coverage of Real Madrid is just sickening out there. I am just relaying what I was told as to why our previously held interest has waned, rather than giving my opinion on him. Sorry I should have made that clear, my mistake. I normally try and make it clear when it is not my opinion, apologies.}

8.) 23 Feb 2018 13:57:28
No problem Ed1. Realistically it is hard to monitor firsthand every player we could be interested in so I guess we base some of our judgement on sources we trust.

{Ed001's Note - I used to try and make an effort to watch as many as I could, but these days I don't have time with all the research for the articles, as well as writing them.}

9.) 23 Feb 2018 13:58:42
If we're taking anyone from Madrid in my opinion it should be Asensio. The kid oozes class every time I watch him.

Keita and Henderson with Asensio in front of them behind our front 3, there would be no need to buy defenders we'd just score 10 a game.

{Ed001's Note - Klopp is one of many who would love to add him in the summer.}

10.) 23 Feb 2018 15:42:50
I'd take Asensio over Lemar, that kid has potential to win the Balon D'Or one day.

Not directly Liverpool related. But noticed Russia got a 22k fine for racist chants. I don't understand how they expect to irradicate racism with a fine like that. UEFA and FIFA are clearly taking the P.


1.) 08 May 2018 20:35:20
That 22k fine should eradicate the problem lol, anyone think it will end up being a s**t will world cup? Build up, excitement just isn't there this time round, not to mention there'll probably ufc fight nights after every game😂.

2.) 08 May 2018 21:22:38
England got a 35k fine for wearing poppies, Fifa need to sort it out big time.

3.) 08 May 2018 22:08:57
It doesn't do much except maybe give the Russian FA a kick up the backside to at least TRY and do something about it, once they get enough fines.
The only thing they can really do is have more security or cameras in place and perma ban the guilty parties. It won’t stop it in the foreseeable future that’s for sure :/.

4.) 08 May 2018 23:39:19
Russia have paid FIFA a lot of money not to be made an example of in legitimate World Cup fees. It's too late and I doubt they have the inclination to hand out any severe punishments at this stage.

5.) 09 May 2018 08:57:06
This is Russia guys. If the state weren't fine with them doing the chants, they wouldn't be doing them. It's really that simple.



25 Apr 2018 20:15:54
Oh mercy any one seen what navas has done in goal. I'd rather keep migs than sign him. He's complete dog waste.




25 Apr 2018 20:12:45
Sooooooo who do we want in the final? I'd prefer real I think our front 3 will destroy that defence. Also. Side note. Does the fact allisson shipped 5 goals last night mean we should look elsewhere? IMO no because he made no errors. But conceding 5 is embarrassing.


1.) 25 Apr 2018 20:39:02
I’m sure every top class keeper has conceded 5 goals in their time. De Gea has for a start. If shots are reigning in on your goal because of poor defending your not going to save everything no matter how good you are.

2.) 25 Apr 2018 20:40:39
People can't judge Allison on one performance, he's a great keeper, a keeper I'd have at Liverpool tomorrow, unfortunately I don't think that'll happen.

Give me either team in the final, we'll do any of them.

3.) 25 Apr 2018 20:43:41
I don’t think Alisson played badly, we were just on fire.

4.) 25 Apr 2018 20:50:05
I don't think Alisson could've stopped us from scoring 5 goals, but if Karius had flown out to the edge of his area and a shot was lifted over him and then dropped a corner later in the game, we'd probably say something about him. Any keeper is going to have a 'could've done better' moment once in a while.

My view on 'keepers is:

There's no point in buying someone like Butland, who might be a bit more consistent with his shot stopping than Karius, but not better than him overall, and actually weaker in some areas. I'd rather continue with Karius, who, remember, has yet to have a full season playing with the same defence consistently. If we replace Karius, it has to be on someone significantly better.

But buying a top quality 'keeper is going to be monstrously expensive. Alisson will probably set us back at least £50m, more if you believe the papers. Is he £50m+ worth of an improvement over Karius? I don't know. With the way football transfer fees are going currently, what even constitutes value for money at £50m?

5.) 25 Apr 2018 21:11:09
Spot on, SR. Butland is at Stoke for a reason. He is average, error and injury prone and overrated. IMO, he is not in Karius' league and would be poor for our system. He's English which is why he still gets air time in the media, IMO. Had he not been, no one would care cos I know I wouldn't. Stoke is his level now while Karius is 90 mins from a CL final, leading an undefeated team and leading the CL in clean sheets. Butland is not in Karius league and IMO, never was.

6.) 25 Apr 2018 22:20:18
Interesting that SG ripped into him for his comments about Mark Hughes as well.

7.) 25 Apr 2018 22:20:42
I thought Alisson made a mistake with Salah's 2nd. He came charging out. He had a covering defender coming across so probably would have been better staying back. I see no reason to replace Karius though. He has deserved the chance to be No.1 for the whole of next season.

8.) 26 Apr 2018 00:58:17
Are we in the final?

11.) 26 Apr 2018 08:56:50
I remember a an LFC vs Newcastle game in 08 that ended 5-1, and Shay Given was the man of the match - against a keeper having anything other than the game of their life it would have been 10 or 11 at least.



11 Apr 2018 20:28:36
Goodness me. Imagine if Madrid and Bayer went out tonight. would that make us favourites?


1.) 11 Apr 2018 20:46:09
I'd rather have Bayern then Sevilla tbh mate. Be brilliant if Juventus knock out RM though.

2.) 11 Apr 2018 20:48:49
Mate if they are putting out Madrid and Bayern then they are good enough to compete and trouble us. We don’t want to be favourites we are always a better team when we are the underdogs.



17 Mar 2018 21:30:39
I can't be the only one wondering if salah will break andy Coles 34 goals.7 more.


1.) 17 Mar 2018 21:36:42
He's got a great chance. He scored more in a game than some first choice forwards score in a season. Troy deeney's been looking pretty proud of himself recently with 3 goals in 4 games. Salah four goals in 1 game.

2.) 17 Mar 2018 22:04:58
Not bothered if he does or does not break that record. I am just in awe of him. I also, want all of us to sit for a moment and realize the greatness that we are all witnessing right before our very eyes in Mo Salah.

3.) 17 Mar 2018 22:06:36
The 34 goals happened in a 40 game season, not 38!

In a 38 game season it's 31 shared by Ronaldo, Suarez and also Shearer!

But if he can keep scoring and have one more game where he gets 3-4, could be possible he breaks the 34 goal record :)

4.) 17 Mar 2018 22:09:55
Fatboynotslim. andy coles record is when the league had 22 teams. The record he needs to beat is actually 32. Suarez came so close but ended up matching it. If a wide forward of ours manages to even match it, it would be an incredible feat.

5.) 17 Mar 2018 22:17:29
Andy Coles record was set over 42 games. Not only might he beat the current 38 game record of 31 goals currently held by Shearer, C. Ronaldo and Suarez but he might beat the 42 game record too. He is having an outstanding season.

6.) 17 Mar 2018 22:37:47
I think i could have been wrong about the 40 a season. was it 42? I think TIA has confirmed this saying 22 teams in the league! My bad. But anyhow, salah has an amazing record :)

7.) 17 Mar 2018 23:25:31
I think that's right but I'd gladly be stood corrected. 31 is the record in 38 games, apologies my 8 Irish Guinness' made me think it was 32! Either way, Salah is doing unbelievable for a typical wide forward.

8.) 18 Mar 2018 00:23:39
Great post BRover. So easy to get caught up in everything else and somewhat take for granted the brilliance that is happening before our very eyes. I just find myself speechless with a big grin from ear to ear watching Salah.

9.) 18 Mar 2018 00:23:47
Should def let him take all penalties from now to boost his chances. Knock Andy Cole of his perch!

10.) 18 Mar 2018 02:15:38
I think we all know, I'm going to break the record. I promise.

And on that note. Robertson to score the champions league final winning goal or provide the assist for it! The lads improved, greatly. Certainly made me eat my words as i like many im sure were not overjoyed with his signing. Most in form left back in the league at this time. Most certainly. Best left back in the league this season. maybe. But for me to be on a top top class level he will need to deliver more assists and more dangerous crosses on a game by game basis where teams are making tactical changes to try and nullify him. All in all I'm pleased we have him and long may his form continue.

I think karius needs time like de gea had and mistakes he makes in games need to be overlooked. Young goalkeepers need patience from us fans. Imagine we sell him and in 3 years time he turns out to be on the level of the very best goal keepers. Give him time and less stick.

Won't slate him if we sign him but if we do i won't have high hopes. Watched him play this season and he is not the vast improvement we need in goal. For the life of me i don't understand Klopps so called insistence in wanting him over other keepers who may be avaliable this summer. I get he is a cheaper option but I'd much rather us spend 70 million to have someone in goal who may not have 50 clean sheets a season but when called upon you know he is able to not fluff up. Navas is not that keeper.

Cheers for the review. Unbeaten at home in the league all season is nothing to scoff at. Another strong anfield season next year will do nicely. Them 7 draws haven't cost us the title but we need to kill teams off to close that gap.

Maybe a newly promoted team might take a punt on him? Wages are the hurdle though and I see no reason why he would leave and take a pay cut.

08 May 2018 18:18:30
I was JUST about to post the same thing. I know the cons to his signing wages, attitude etc. But with his agent saying he will pay back half his wages maybe a bench option would be good. And his quality and experience will be good for the youngsters. yay or nay.


{Ed001's Note - he is lazy as hell and has a terrible attitude. He would be the last player you would want youngsters to follow.}

I agree with ed. If over the season we finish 5th then it's well deserved. The lads look tired hopefully the week off will give them the boost to see off Brighton who I don't see coming to anfield and doing anything especially as they are completely safe. However our midfield looks lost without can or ox making them runs at the opposition. Hopefully next season naby and ox can provide what's missing in our midfield but on the recent displays we are going to need to invest before we can make up the gap to challenge city. We didn't really do much wrong today just didn't have anything to penetrate a solid defense. Anyways no doom and gloom everything is ours to lose.
