I've heard the Ward will be going on loan at Huddersfield. Their coach David Wagner used to be Coach for the Dortmund B and I believe that he was Klopps best man at his wedding.
Not sure if it's people putting the two together but it seems plausible.

Town need a goalie next season too. I'm a joint fan of both teams so if I'm hopeful.

On the Chilwell rumour - Wagner had him on loan at town until Jan so surely also gave Klopp some feedback there too along with Liverpool scouts.

Just seen paper talk regarding west ham interested in Sturridge for 18 million.
I'm torn on whether I would like us to sell sturridge or not, part of me wants to give him until next season to regain full fitness but part of me thinks he's never going to get over his injury nightmare, and 18 million seems a decent sum for a lad we can never seem to play.

If he leaves and long comes in I'm going to cry because whan fit he's easy in top 3 st in the prem.


2.) 19 Jan 2016 23:57:50
I'm with you on that. Long isn't even top ten in the prem. I'd hate to see sturridge leave for a prem side. They were looking med with Balo 2 days ago so maybe it's just press trying their luck.


3.) 20 Jan 2016 03:40:43
Can't believe yer even thinking it may be true for one second.


4.) 20 Jan 2016 06:18:35
Why would West Ham even consider a bid for Sturbridge at this time?

Don't waste the eds valuable time having to respond to this nonsense!


5.) 20 Jan 2016 06:19:03
It wouldn't surprise me that it's 'true' that West Ham are interested.

As for Liverpool, then surely we can give until the end of the season, unless of course, a done-deal has already been agreed for him to leave.

Sincerely hope not.


6.) 20 Jan 2016 07:47:12
this ain't happening this is coming from the brentwood gazatte we already have one crock on the books besides we couldn't afford his 120 k aweek wages.


7.) 20 Jan 2016 08:06:08
A 20% fit Sturridge will probably still score us more goals than a 100% fit Long - it's a sad day if Long and Caulker are the best we can do.


8.) 20 Jan 2016 08:38:08
Maybe Andy Carroll needs a physio room buddy?

£18m plus agents fees, taxes and huge wages in the January transfer window with no sign of injury recovery or remediation is neither financially viable, feasible or makes one single iota of business sense

It is simply not going to happen, and nothing but tabloid garbage teasing the gullible people who read that tripe.


9.) 20 Jan 2016 09:22:56
regarding sturridge, liverpool should do as a good lover do when u find out your partner no longer love u - "i will let go becuase i luve u "


10.) 20 Jan 2016 10:24:25
When did the Brentwood Gazette become the tome of all knowledge?

Has anyone looked at the website? the front page news is that they're 'horrified' a Costa Coffee is due to open in November on the High Street! seriously?


11.) 20 Jan 2016 12:08:18
I know it's not true but I would snap their hands off. Over half way through the season and the guy has played 4 times, sorry but lfc cannot afford to carry this guy regardless of how good he is when fit. WHEN is the important word, a guy who is hasn't played a full seasons worth of games in nearly 4 yrs! £18m represents a profit on the guy, another chance like this will not happen. It's very likely that Daniel will be completely fit ever again as I'm sure that his problems are his mental state now. That's much harder to resolve. We would be absolutely stupid to turn it down.


12.) 20 Jan 2016 12:48:59
I agree - A very difficult decision to make because at his best he is lethal. Is this now becoming a mental issue for him? I'd say that we've seen his best and it's definitely worth waiting until the end of the season for. However the longer he stays injured the less confident I am that he is able to recover.
Could we get a loan until the end of the season? Who is available? -
Rossi?
Remy?
Even Adebayor knows where the back of the net is!
That would allow us time to assess Sturridge again and then find someone during the summer

Could we offer West Ham Benteke instead?

Apparently Klopp been on phone again telling ziekinski he will get appearances next season.
Do we have permission to speak to him now? Or do we have to get the bid accepted?
It's getting ridiculous that the club won't cough up the asking price of they want him.

Frisky

1.) 12 Jun 2016 18:53:56
Are you privy to Klopp's phone conversations? If so give me the heads up so I can clean up at the bookies.

Ffs embarrassing.


4.) 12 Jun 2016 19:36:01
Are you suggesting we are tapping him up again, the very same thing we did that got Udinese upset and for which UEFA has reprimanded us for? Surely, you can't be serious, right?


 

 

20 May 2016 17:37:59
Ed002; just got in from work and I'm checking the site as per usual. Thanks for the info as always, on chilwell, zielinski and gotze.
I may have missed something though, just want to clarify please.
It sounds like from the reply's today that Liverpool are being investigated for Tapping up, because Klopps phone calls to Gotze and zielinski, and we are expected to pay 20 million or so for Zielinski because of it.
Have I got that right?
Will they be looking to make a formal complaint if we don't pay the 20 MIL asking price

It also sounds like Chilwell is a fairly certain deal, as you said other clubs are looking elsewhere, thanks again.

Frisky

{Ed002's Note - No, there have been no complains made to UEFA or FIFA at this time. I have certainly not said any figure in respect of Zielinski. I did not say "fairly certain" or anything like that either.}


1.) 20 May 2016 18:03:19
Thought I read that udinese expect us to pay a similar fee to Mario Gotze's asking price?
I know you didn't say fairly certain to Chilwell, that was me who wrote that, just assuming we have got a good chance of landing him considering the other clubs interested have turned away from him.

{Ed002's Note - I am pretty sure that nobody from Udinese has mention Goetze at all.}


2.) 20 May 2016 18:14:07
Sorry to quote you and be a nuisance but I've just read

"Liverpool has made an approach regarding Zielinski and have been told in no uncertain terms that they should pay what is being asked for Goetze as they tapped him up as well"

Maybe I'm tired and it's not registering in my brain properly but it sounds to me that they are after around 20 million for Zielinski, double what people are quoting.
Anyway, appreciate the info.

{Ed002's Note - That is not what is meant - Liverpool have been told by both clubs to pay the asking price for the players they have tapped up. Liverpool may well decide not to do that and then risk a complaint being made to UEFA. If that happens then Liverpool, with the most appaling recent history in terms of discipline could be in even more trouble than they are now.}


3.) 20 May 2016 18:21:44
Ahhhh, thanks mate 👍.


4.) 20 May 2016 18:36:09
Naughty step for us then.

{Ed002's Note - After having seven charges heard by UEFA yesterday Liverpool have had two further charges made against them over the final. This could prove to be a major issue for the club now.}


5.) 20 May 2016 19:01:14
maybe a ban from europe next season? :)
just joking of course lol.


 

 

19 May 2016 20:15:09
Can you see the disappointment of this season result in us buying a ton of new players for the fourth summer window in a row?
I hope to God we don't, with Grujic coming in and us being linked already with a mass amount of players it seems like there's another season of transition to come.
I'm hoping we get a top class keeper and a left back. That would be enough for me, and if we could get gotze for the reported 16-20 million then that would be a improvement on the first team replacing lallana who I like but doesn't contribute enough.
I'm waffling but please don't sign another ten players again.

Frisky

1.) 19 May 2016 20:34:35
It wouldn't be enough for me, over half of these are bang average end of.


2.) 19 May 2016 20:45:05
Well we second top scorers in league since Klopp took over, so attacking wise we aren't terrible as per usual it's the defence. Might as well just go out and get a couple of proper improvements instead of getting another ten players to replace the ones we bought last year.


3.) 19 May 2016 20:48:44
Tbh most of the overhaul should be in offloading players.

Hard to say but maybe 3-4 attention including the already agreed ones.

Trying to be more level headed and not expected instant success, just want signs of improvement.


4.) 19 May 2016 20:52:30
Frisky did you notice that gaping hole in midfield that Seville kept running through?


5.) 19 May 2016 23:40:03
Fop, that hole has been there all season. Our centre midfield is a genuine weakness.


6.) 20 May 2016 05:11:07
Yeah like grujic is going to improve us so much. As if.


 

 

04 May 2016 18:22:22
I know this site seems to hate on Clyne a fair bit. I like him though, he's been consistent throughout the season and I believe he's possibly making his 50 appearance tomorrow even though he only signed in the summer. That's some good going and Well done to the lad. Here's hoping for many more.

Frisky

1.) 04 May 2016 19:32:54
To be honest he hasn't had a lot of competition for the spot. I was expecting great things from him at the start but he hasn't been that great for me.


2.) 04 May 2016 19:45:05
Hes hardly Javier Zanetti is he? He's made 50 appearances because no one else can play there. Flanagan has been injured/ loss of form and I don't think Klopp thinks the kids are ready just yet. The only positive about Clyne is he's never injured. He's excrement going forward and blunts our attack time 99.9% of the time and I'd be interested to see his assist stats. Defensively he's suspect also but not as much as the muppet on the left hand side (who incidentally does a hilarious Chris Kamara impression) . They both need chopping in the summer.


3.) 04 May 2016 19:45:28
He's probably been the most consistent part of our back 5 in terms of performances - it can't be easy for any player to stand out in a defence that mostly has Skrtel and Migs in it.

I look forward to having a couple of better players in defence next year, let's judge Clyne again then.


4.) 04 May 2016 20:03:32
I must admit I do not watch a lot of football unless it involves liverpool; I was happy with the signing of Clyne as I thought from the games I had seen he had done well at Southampton.

Having seen him play for us I do worry about his distribution going forward and some of his positional sense when defending.

I'd probably say that if we want to be in the champions league year in year out that he will need replacing - not this summer but maybe next; unless he can improve in these areas.


5.) 04 May 2016 20:07:06
I agree with your statement Johnnyr. The keeper and defenders needs to work as a unit then they all look better in my opinion.


6.) 04 May 2016 20:08:46
One thing is for sure, Southampton are not missing Clyne.


7.) 04 May 2016 20:22:43
Irish Rover and JohnyR with all due respect your both spouting anuadultarated bunkum! Your logic has no merit because on your basis no decent players would stand out if they played for crappy teams? If clyne was good we wouldn't concede much from the right hand side, we would score from the right hand side when he is attacking and people would call him good. I don't see none of that happening. That's the mark of a decent player that he can be good even when his team mates are poor. Where do you guys get your football knowledge from Katie Price?


8.) 04 May 2016 20:43:56
No disrespect to the lad, but Clyne is absolutely GARBAGE. Not good enough at the back; does not know how to defend and has a non existent touch, apart frow slowing down the atack and being woefull at passing, his only merit is pace; without it he would be playing who knows where.
He's another example of amateur scouting and splashing the cash for the sake of it. 12 million pounds. Oh my. Embarrasing. In the meantime Wisdown never got an oportunity even when he was promised so.
Hope Kloop sort out this kind of dealings for good.


9.) 04 May 2016 20:48:38
Clyne is not very good and playing 50 games this year will not change that. He has poor positioning, poor passing and he doesn`t close down crosses. And his final ball is just aweful. So again, enlighten us on how good he is having mentioned all his flaws?


10.) 04 May 2016 21:23:40
Here Brenda. Read my first response to the thread then i will post you that Katie Price book AND a pair of glasses. Buttercup!


11.) 04 May 2016 21:51:45
I think clyne is decent, but his end product isn't too great. One thing i will say is he doesn't have as much support as the left say. Couts is a constant outlet for moreno and is used for overlaps. With lallana often playing there is hardly ever takes up a space ahead of clyne for an overlap and open up some space. Milner has helped but in a attacking sense i guess it makes it a little harder. Defensively i think he's been okay some good moments some bad.


12.) 04 May 2016 21:52:22
To be fair every player is hated on here. Apart from Fowler. And Lucas for some reason. I quite like Clyne but then I think Lucas is a great lad but an average player so I don't fit in around here.


13.) 04 May 2016 22:32:27
Irish Rover I'm getting on in years and my eyesight is failing me buttercup! Let me give you a virtual Klopp hug as a way of an apology.


14.) 05 May 2016 00:04:10
All I'd like to add is the following.

Lovren was deemed not good enough on here by many. As was Firmino. As was Origi.


15.) 05 May 2016 02:32:59
Agree with you Pips, Clyne is a solid player who defends fine. Perhaps his crossing needs to improve but I'd rather him than Moreno as I prefer fullbacks to be defensively sound first and attacking second, I think Clyne is a significant step up over the problems we had before under GJ.

I also happen to agree on Lucas, best guy in the team but just like Allen, he happens to have good games and then bad depending on who we play and how the game runs. We need someone with more pace as a backup to Hendo/ Can. Lucas got exposed vs. King at CB, and then also gets exposed at CDM when facing teams playing on the counter. He only really looks great with an organised defence around him to cut down space and prevent his lack of pace being exposed. We can't afford that sort of weakness at DM against the best sides.

{Ed001's Note - I can't agree with either of those assessments. Clyne simply can't defend, he has zero positional sense or game intelligence. The only thing he does is not bomb forward too soon.

As for Lucas, that is a laughable assessment. People just never see his contribution, clearly you being one of them. You are basing your opinion on how he plays based on how the team plays. He has never only looked great with an organised defence around him at all, that is just nonsense. That is just someone not watching him play. You will never be a scout that is clear.}


16.) 05 May 2016 03:23:54
Funny how so many supporters thought it was great business getting him from Southampton for 12m at the time he was beginning to be a regular starter for England. I don't think the player is worse. It could be the whole back 5 unit is not as good as Southampton's at the time.


17.) 05 May 2016 10:02:43
I never wanted Clyne or Moreno. I wanted Trippier and Bertrand.

Trippier because although he isn't great defensively, he is excellent at crossing the ball and he was available for a lower price. He would have been a good back up for Flanagan when he returns and would've given us more this season than Clyne.

And Bertrand because in my opinion he is still the best left back in the league. Although that isn't much to shout about.

Just to add, a player getting picked for England is usually a good sign they aren't good enough. Welbeck, Oxlade, Walcott, Rooney, Young, Wilshere, Clyne and Jagielka are proof of that. I will never judge a player based on his international managers view of him. Lucas and Coutinho have never been rated by Brazil managers (or sponsors. )

Clyne can't defend or attack. Most modern full backs are only good at one or the other to be fair. But he's good at neither. To be fair Trippier hasn't stepped up his game at all as i thought he would, but Trippier would've at least given us something extra offensively even if he isn't any better defensively. Moreno is the same as Clyne though. Can't defend or attack. He may be better than Clyne at utilising his pace to beat a man but his decision making and end product is simply atrocious. His stats say he creates a lot of chances but if you watch the actual game, the chances he creates are of no real quality.

Our full back areas are up there with the goalkeeper as our weakest links. I'm not going to defend Clyne just because he's played 49 games. He and Moreno give away too many silly fouls in wide areas as well which doesn't help at all with his many set piece goals we concede.

All these excuses for Clyne are ridiculous. Doesn't he have like 10 yellow cards this season? He can't tackle, and he can't find a team mate with a pass. Those are basics for a defender. Being quick and aggressive does not make you premier league quality.

We probably dodged a bullet in Trippier, but choosing Moreno over Bertrand was a blunder of epic proportions. He will never be a good defender. His future lies as a left wing back or a left midfielder and maybe when he is more experienced his end product and decision making will improve. You can't coach defensive acumen though when there is absolutely no tactical awareness there to start with. You either have tactical awareness or you don't. We might as well coach Sturridge to be our left back. As a wise man once said, good full backs are rare nowadays. "Nobody grows up wanting to be a Gary Neville. You're either a failed centre back, or a failed winger". The full back position is a dying art and Moreno and Clyne are both failed wingers.

The only truly exceptional full back in world football under 25 is Alaba. I cannot name a single other young full back who can attack and defend to a world class level. The art was lost with the likes of Cafu, Zanetti, Lahm, Evra and Cole who are all either retired or well past their past now.


18.) 05 May 2016 10:59:18
I don't think that's always been the case Ed, just becoming increasingly so as Lucas's legs go. An organised Defence around him means he's fine, but a swift counterattack at pace and he's going to struggle more than Can for example.

I think he therefore manages to play better against the best sides, where we are forced to maintain a healthier balance between Defence and Attack, than say weaker sides that give us 70% of possession, our FBs are in their box and then look to ping us on the break. I'd pick him to play vs Real Madrid or Barcelona but oddly enough would play Stewart or Can against a Southampton or Stoke.

Until a year ago he could do it all, but watching the last few months I'm not so sure, or perhaps simply he just needs to get back to full fitness after injuries.

{Ed001's Note - we haven't had an organised defence in years, so this is just delusions based on your own bias. If you can't understand how your whole theory is crap on that basis alone, then you are wasting everyone's time.}


 

 

08 Apr 2016 06:52:08
Morning eds.
In Henderson's most recent interview he said he was playing with an injury and it will only clear up with rest. Which he hopes he will get the chance after the euros and before next season starts.
Considering he left the stadium on crutches last night he should get the time to rest and hopefully his ankle should heal as well as his knee.

Although I thought his injury was a permanent one but with a bit of luck we will get the hendo we love back soon.

Frisky

{Ed001's Note - fingers crosssed mate. Though we are going to miss him over the next few weeks.}


1.) 08 Apr 2016 07:03:12
Bit of a conundrum this one. Sad to see him out potentially for the season and could miss the Euros but selfishly it would be great for him to have the exendecbreak and come back 100% for next season.


2.) 08 Apr 2016 07:52:34
you could see the gap after he was replaced. Sad as it maybe we really going to miss him. Mabe its time for Stewy to get a run as Joe doesn't seem to hAave that in him.


3.) 08 Apr 2016 07:55:34
Agree give stewart his chance.


4.) 08 Apr 2016 08:07:20
Ed, what would you do next few games given 1) Hendos injury 2) Can's ban against Stoke?

{Ed001's Note - Stewart and Branagan unless Lucas is fit to play. In which case I would play Lucas and Stewart.}


5.) 08 Apr 2016 09:11:37
Cheers Ed

Hope you're right and the best of those goes on to partner Can in second leg (if Hendo is still injured as we anticipate)

Think we're going to miss Hendo badly but might just be the run Stewart really needs to establish himself as genuine 1st team contender, hope he can prove himself.

{Ed001's Note - I don't expect to see Hendo back this season the way he was hobbling last night.}


6.) 08 Apr 2016 09:54:56
Such a shame, hopefully if he's out for that long he'll be out all he way through to next season and as a silver lining get the genuine long term rest he's been needing for some time now. We need him fully fit next season, not the playing through pain we've seen for most of this.


7.) 08 Apr 2016 11:33:16
Its always a shame when a player of ours gets injured but missed? I can't believe what I'm reading above. He was not missed in the second half last night at all in my opinion. What are people seeing in him that I'm not? To me he's not improving, he's going in the opposite direction. People may be up his arse because he's the captain but we have to look further than him. Allen is a player I never rated but he does seem to be improving under klopp. Hendo isn't, for me he won't be missed. Having said this, I hope he makes a quick and full recovery asap.

{Ed001's Note - I think it is more of a case of what you are missing. He provides a lot more cover in front of the back four.}


8.) 08 Apr 2016 13:33:45
Spot on Ed. You don`t see Can and Allen covering the midfield the way Hendo does. If you doubt me? Go watch the second half capitulation vs Saints with Allen and can in midfield and you`ll know what I`m talking about.

{Ed001's Note - Allen gets forward far too much for my liking. Not an issue if the full backs hold, but they don't.}

The player is currently not subject to any playing suspension. However, the club, in consultation with the player, has decided that while this process is followed the player will not be available for selection for matches. There will be no further comment at this time

Granit Xhaka is under contract until 30/ 6/ 2019, so assuming that he will join in July 2019 if he has signed a pre contract, which I believe to be illegal.
Perhaps the two clubs could have agreed a fee for the summer but that's not what's been reported.

We will smash united home and away this season. We will play all game like we did for 20 minutes against arsenal. When we are fired up we are unstoppable. We could go unbeaten against all 6/ 7 top 4 candidates but then we all know hull will do the double over us.
Also I think saints will be close to relegation this season.
