I've never known this website to be so quiet for rumours near a transfer window. Even twitter is quiet! I guess this is what happens when your team is playing well.

Love a good rumour though.

Hoping for a Macca Xmas miracle or perhaps one of those little peaches from Ed2 or his dog.

That’s never stopped us before ed.


2.) 24 Dec 2018 11:44:14
Rumour has it there are no rumours.


3.) 24 Dec 2018 10:56:13
Haha nice edit Ed.


 

 

14 Jul 2018 13:34:31
Harry Wilson left out of the squad for today's friendly and no mention of an injury or other reason for him to miss out.

Is he off somewhere? Hope not!

GeorgeT

1.) 14 Jul 2018 13:48:39
I suspect with Shaqiri coming in he may well go on a loan.


2.) 14 Jul 2018 13:58:13
Think he is better than Kent or Ojo, would much rather we kept him around for the season.


3.) 14 Jul 2018 14:18:30
I’d rather we manage our youngsters properly and have a plan for their development.


4.) 14 Jul 2018 14:44:11
Kloop has confirmed he us going on loan.


5.) 14 Jul 2018 15:21:26
A year on loan at stoke will be solid. They should by all accounts be near the top of the table. If he can start a full season in a high pressured situation will stand him in good stead.


6.) 14 Jul 2018 16:05:15
As long as they warrant a minimum number of games or starts, I'm happy with the loan to Stoke.


 

 

04 Jul 2018 13:00:46
Interesting if we do sign Cillissen before off-loading other keepers, hope we don't get stuck being unable to sell Migs and Ward and go into the new season with too many keeps again!

Eds, I'm assuming that players who are surplus to requirements will be aware at this stage? Mignolet for example won't be surprised if Liverpool sign a goalkeeper as he knows he'll be off?

On a side note, Fabinho seems like a good guy in his most recent interview.

GeorgeT

{Ed002's Note - Typically clubs will inform agents in plenty of time if they are not required any longer. Then you will have those who want to leave then there are those where offers arrive.}


1.) 04 Jul 2018 13:54:58
I personally don’t see the point in offloading Mignolet and Ward to bring in Cillessen. Makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.


2.) 04 Jul 2018 14:16:11
Well, Mingolet doesn't want to say if he's not first choice and should absolutely never be first choice again, so that makes sense.

And if Klopp prefers Cillessen to Ward, that's that all explained.


3.) 04 Jul 2018 18:16:02
My point bring that he’s a terrible keeper and worse than Mignolet. Actually worse.


4.) 04 Jul 2018 18:55:19
Cillessen is a much better keeper than Mignolet. I don't think he's definitely better than Karius though.


5.) 04 Jul 2018 19:10:07
FMS what makes your more qualified to decide that than those employed/ tasked to do the job?


6.) 04 Jul 2018 19:23:22
Naby, FMS knows everything about everybody.


7.) 04 Jul 2018 19:58:14
If you’d ever taken the time to watch Cillessen you’d know he’s a poor keeper who has all the faults of Mignolet and more. The worst Dutch number one for years and certainly not the answer to our goalkeeping problems. Mind you I suppose it depends what you’re after, if you want incompetence, a keeper that flaps at crosses, who is physically dominated easily, has no command of his area, has poor kicking ability and hasn’t played any proper football in two years, then Cillessen is your man.


8.) 04 Jul 2018 20:15:58
It's remarkable how you are able to critically assess him despite that fact that he has hardly played for 2 years, you must watch a lot of Copa del Rey football.
It also remarkable that he won the Ajax player of the year twice in a row despite seemingly being a non-league standard goalkeeper.
I'm sure the people at Ajax and Barcelona will be in touch any day now to learn from your infinite knowledge.


9.) 04 Jul 2018 20:53:33
What I saw of him playing for Ajax and Netherlands is a keeper that gets done easily by high balls into the box, that is easily dominated, has zero command of his area, has poor positional sense and has poor distribution. It’s fair to say he’s one of the worst first choice Dutch keepers for a long time. I’m not fussed about him winning club player of the year, Stewart Downing was Villa’s club player of the year when we signed him and he was great wasn’t he? I’m concerned that we are about to fritter away stupid money on another poor keeper who has barely played any football this last year and doesn’t address any of the shortcomings that Mignolet or Karius have. Of course if you’re happy with another poor keeper then I’m delighted for you.


10.) 04 Jul 2018 21:49:43
I don't presume to know anything about Cillessen, what I do know is if the club wants him then I am happy with that. Ajax must have seen enough in him to play him in the first place and Barcelona must have seen enough in him to buy him from Ajax.
I am willing to keep an open mind about any player we are linked with, I don't think I know everything about every player.


11.) 05 Jul 2018 00:30:37
No he doesn’t. He prefer Cillesson to Karius.


 

 

27 Mar 2018 15:34:01
So what's going to happen with Sturridge and Origi?

Wouldn't mind keeping one if they were happy to be a backup player. can't imagine either would be worth much money!

GeorgeT

{Ed002's Note - Origi will know is future is away from Liverpool but his season has tailed off rather. Liverpool will look to sell Sturridge but need to be more realistic about the fee.}


1.) 27 Mar 2018 17:03:42
Your last sentence has it spot on George. Time for both to move on IMO.


2.) 27 Mar 2018 17:30:28
I think the only way we get Sturridge out the door is loan next season then his contract is up or we give him a free transfer. as I don't see anyone taking a chance on him with wages and transfer fee.


3.) 27 Mar 2018 17:40:08
Origi might have a couple of suitors because he's young-ish and fit atleast.

Sturridge is incredibly injury prone and will have pretty high wages, I wouldn't be surprised if he was still around next season just because we can't find a new home for him!

We can keep one if they don't mind being nothing more than a squad player.


4.) 27 Mar 2018 18:02:55
I see studge heading to China.


5.) 27 Mar 2018 18:52:20
I agree with Ed. We need to set a lower price for Sturridge because of his injury problems.


6.) 27 Mar 2018 19:14:29
He’s been a good player to the club, who is a terrific talent, doesn’t moan, by all accounts has helped a few players and youngsters settle, a model pro. We should let the lad choose where he wants to go from the offers same as Lucas did and wish him well. Such a shame he had the injury issues or he could of remained at the very top level.


7.) 27 Mar 2018 18:35:23
Would anyone really be that surprised if West Ham bid for Sturridge though.
Origi I do think know what has went wrong, he definitely has the ability to be a very good forward. Back to France maybe and he'll probably bag a hatfull of goals in that league.


8.) 27 Mar 2018 23:34:07
The second half of the season where we got to the final of the Europa, he was looking like the real deal, scored some good and important goals, I hope he gets a chance, but it's going to be one of him ings or solanke for me, and solanke hasn't really had a shot at all.


9.) 28 Mar 2018 07:27:54
I worry that Solanke hasn’t looked at all too impressive, even with his cameos. I hope I’m wrong and I hope the lad gets a good loan next season and stays on. Maybe it’s more a case of him needing to work that little bit harder off the pitch like Harry Kane as opposed to relying on his natural ability.


10.) 28 Mar 2018 10:17:48
Origi would be marketable for teams outside the top 3 leagues, francce or portugal?

Sad about sturridge and all that potential. he's on 120 too apparently and no one will be willing to pay that.

He could also end up pulling a van persie and be injury free next two years and bang the goals in.


11.) 28 Mar 2018 10:36:48
Sturridge is a decent bloke who deserves to be given the opportunity to play elsewhere, but for his injuries he is a fantastic footballer and probably one of the best finishers around at the moment, but our style of play doesn't really suit him and he needs to be at a club that can play to his strengths.


12.) 28 Mar 2018 17:02:07
Sturridge has been long finished we saw the best of him with Suarez and not since. Shame but he has to go too much on the wage bill for a bit part player. Origi I still think has talent but hasn’t progressed enough I would like to see a full season in the prem on loan.


13.) 28 Mar 2018 20:32:01
It amazes me how many fans are so worried bout our wage bill, the club gave him his contract so forget about the wages, they can well afford it,


14.) 29 Mar 2018 00:58:38
Sorry port but glad your not in Finance if that’s your outlook sure let’s pay 100k a week to a bench player so what if we can afford it doesn’t make it good business sense get a grip.


 

 

21 Feb 2018 13:30:23
Any truth in the rumours linking us with Mohamed Bahlouli from Lyon?

Seen the same rumours popping up in a few places in the last couple of weeks.

Just a young lad so I'd assume a player for the Under 23s.

GeorgeT

1.) 21 Feb 2018 17:00:17
With a number of players reaching a pivotal age in their careers I believe we will see a drive for young potential to replace those.


2.) 21 Feb 2018 17:01:16
Lad I thought that was ballotelli and crapped myself haha.


3.) 21 Feb 2018 20:43:01
Just thought it would be good to point out that it looks like Mario has finally found a home. He's doing very well over in France by the sounds of it.

Buzzing for next season already!

Fingers crossed we'll have Gomez, Ox, and Brewster available from the start. That's as good as 3 new signing for me! Proven quality and a hit of exciting youth. May even have Wilson in and around the team too.

Don't think we need a big summer for transfers at all, a few will leave and a little bit of depth needed.

Bring on next year!

GeorgeT

1.) 08 Apr 2019 11:46:29
Agree with that. but the great sides always look to strengthen when at the top otherwise you will see your competitors overtake you.

Wan Bissaka and Sessegnon would be great but don’t know if we could get either or both.


2.) 08 Apr 2019 12:29:30
Not sure about Sessegnon, but if Wan Bissaka becomes available we should go all out to try and persuade him to join us. He will have plenty of suitors that's for sure.

{Ed002's Note - Wan-Bissaka is not a player Liverpool has shown any interest in and sure as hell won't be moving to sit on Liverpool's bench. Sessegnon is different in that Liverpool were interested prior to Robertson joining, and he is capable of providing cover on the left-hand side - he struggled to step up the the premier league but he will be moving this summer and it would not be a surprise to see Liverpool look to him again. Spurs, who Sessegnon has identified as the club he wants to play for, and Borussia Dortmund are interested.}


3.) 08 Apr 2019 12:33:36
Tommy Gun I agree, think we should go all out for Wan Bissaka to play/ rotate with Arnold who can be slowly be integrated into midfield. Ryan Sessegnon can provide cover for both Robertson and Mane so would get plenty of game time. 3rd signing I would go for is Julian Brandt to play the 10 role but also provide cover for the front 3.


4.) 08 Apr 2019 14:29:47
Sessegnon would be a good shout as our fullbacks are particularly important in our attack, and as mentioned he can add cover for Mane.


5.) 08 Apr 2019 16:08:47
Ed you mention we may look amd Sessegnon again. Do you have any more info on what the chances are that we will go for him. Is he seen as a plan B if we don't get our target or even if he is seen as the plan A?

{Ed002's Note - I really have no idea what you are talking about and I cannot be expected to answer this.}


6.) 08 Apr 2019 17:29:00
I don't know what you did not understand? Is he a target and if so is he seen as priority or is he a plan B if we are not able to get our first choice target for LB?

{Ed002's Note - RTP.


7.) 08 Apr 2019 19:24:45
Sessegnon makes sense. For the past three years, we've signed a player from a club that got relegated. I can't see anyone else that qualifies and would be good enough.

Surely it's now become a tradition for us.

{Ed002's Note - No it is not a traditions, and the kid wants to play for Spurs.}


8.) 08 Apr 2019 18:47:21
Martolfc, chill out man and stop badgering the Ed. Ed02 said that Seesegnon (since we were interested in him before Fulham got promoted) MAY look to him again. The word MAY tells you that it is something we could look to pursue if the opportunity arises. There is NO certainty about it hence, Asking the Ed or anyone else whether he is a target, what the chances we have of signing him if our first choice (whoever that is cos no one knows) or plan B, is he a priority etc., makes little sense at this point. Chill out and watch what happens.


9.) 08 Apr 2019 22:18:31
Deli ali wanted to play for us, doesn't mean that sessegnon will definitely go to spurs. We have progressed above spurs now too, by quite a way, since sessegnon was tipped to join spurs.

I think he would be an excellent signing, being able to play in multiple positions is something klopp likes. If fulham go down, which they will i think, then young ryan will want to leave. Spurs or liverpool, dortmund. If it was me id choose liverpool speaking objectively. Although he would probably get more game time at the other clubs.

Robertson has so much potential, i think he can become a liverpool legend. Does he need stiffer competition? Or is rivalry going to slow down his progression?

{Ed002's Note - It has nothing to do with Alli. Fulham have already been relegated.}


10.) 09 Apr 2019 15:15:26
I’m not saying he’s not a good player and I haven’t watched every Fulham game by any means but what I have seen of sessegnon this season I’ve been really disappointed. Both Palace full backs seem to have had fairly decent seasons. Are there many full backs highly rated in the championship at the moment at all? And is there any interest in Chiswell Anymore from Leicester if there ever was any.

{Ed001's Note - there was interest, Leicester valued him higher than we did and that was the end of it.}


11.) 09 Apr 2019 16:36:48
No, i know ed02. My point was that players don't always end up joining the team they want to. I know there are different reasons for this. I believe the deli ali deal was almost done, but the chairman wouldn't front 8 mil.

Spurs were probably better than us last season or the season before, when sessegnon was tipped to join spurs. He is a young lad, lives in london, probably has for most of his life. And that might be why he favours spurs. But, people mature and liverpool have totally over taken spurs now. I think the kid should come to us.

I didn't know fulham were relegated. Amazing considering the money they spent. I like shurrle, i think he is versatile and can cover multiple positions. German too.

{Ed002's Note - Spurs want to buy him, Fulham want to sell him and he wants to play for Spurs. If Liverpool want to change that then they need to approach Fulham; they haven't.}


 

 

06 Apr 2019 09:40:51
If we win the league this season then we can say that everyone contributed.

Fringe players like origi, studge, shaqiri, Kieta have all made vital contributions in different moments this season.

Just need Moreno to score us the goal that wins us the league now!

GeorgeT

1.) 06 Apr 2019 10:37:50
Never going to happen.


2.) 06 Apr 2019 10:47:14
Even Henderson finally did something. Miracles can and do happen.


3.) 06 Apr 2019 11:12:17
And Mignolet to save a penalty in the last game of the season.


4.) 06 Apr 2019 11:23:04
The league will be sewn up by then, city to drop points at palace next week.


5.) 06 Apr 2019 11:51:37
I've got a sneaky feeling Palace could upset city too Rugby.


6.) 06 Apr 2019 12:04:34
In between champions league games, away to palace could be a tough game if palace are on it.


7.) 06 Apr 2019 12:27:33
BeckersGloves, your lack of respect for the Liverpool FC club captain is disgusting.


8.) 06 Apr 2019 12:42:41
Would've said similar ww, unreal mate.


9.) 06 Apr 2019 21:04:39
The captain of a football club should not be a player who hasn’t started 70% of this seasons games.

A captain should be a strong, dominant and controlling force on and off the pitch.

I have no opinion on his game other than that this season when he has been on he has seemed invisible. He has periods like that last season also.

His lack of appearances and interactions when making an appearance are not good enough and are damaging the team. We need a captain who is present, active and a strong mental and physical influence. It's difficult to do that from the bench. The key thing we are missing with hendo as captain is consistency. It is time that he hands it to Virgil for the good of the team.

Have I upset some fragile flowers by daring to not be happy with an on and off part time influencer as a captain? Sorry about that, but it's an opinion and one that is made I believe in the Interest of the club rather than the feelings of one player and a few blinkered fans on a rumors webpage.


10.) 06 Apr 2019 21:23:45
Well said Beckers, couldn’t agree more!


11.) 06 Apr 2019 21:41:57
BeckersGloves, I love it that you think of me as a fragile flower! I have never before in my quite long life been described as either fragile or a flower so that is something I will cherish. But back to Hendo - everything I see, hear and read leads me to believe that he is a massive influence on the team in training, on the pitch and from the bench. Why else would Klopp retain Hendo as club captain when other leaders such as VVD and Milner are available? I would be very interested to hear from you about the evidence you have to support your bizarre claim that his captaincy is damaging the team. In the absence of such evidence, while you are of course entitled to your opinion, perhaps you could be a bit more respectful towards the club captain.


12.) 07 Apr 2019 04:35:40
the captain needs to be what the team needs him to be. Not some dreamt up version of perfection to fill the self esteem void of some fans looking for a super hero . . .
Hendo epitomizes everything about this title charge - self-sacrifice, energy, passion and pure defiance of those, including his own club's fans, who say we aren't good enough. While he is chastized, he is busy putting in the hard yards to no applause. Go on Hendo lad and get the title for the club.


 

 

31 Mar 2019 19:30:47
So how many points do you think we need City to drop? 3 enough or more?

As a minimum I think we need them to lose to either spurs or united and then maybe a cheeky draw elsewhere. Unfortunately I just see City winning everything!

Will pray that we just keep doing our bit and we get some favours from elsewhere.

GeorgeT

1.) 31 Mar 2019 19:48:32
We only need City to draw one game if we win all of ours. I think City will drop points somewhere, they play Palace, Burnley and United away and Spurs and Leicester at home, that’s a tricky run of fixtures. If they win all of them they deserve to be champions.


2.) 31 Mar 2019 19:53:45
I think we have to win every game otherwise they have to drop points twice. The next 2 games are mad important for us as Southampton are playing better and Chelsea are fighting for top 4. Cardiff might be scrapping for their lives when we play them as well.


3.) 31 Mar 2019 19:59:47
I don't see City going to Old Trafford under the lights, with Utd under pressure for points while City feeling the pressure of being in the title race themselvess. with a one of cup tie atmosphere and the place jumping, and winning. if they do fair play to them but i don't see it.


4.) 31 Mar 2019 20:45:22
We only need them to drop 2 points if we win all our games.


5.) 31 Mar 2019 21:07:50
We need to make sure they need to win against Spurs and Utd to keep pressure on them. Anything less will be no good unfortunately.


6.) 31 Mar 2019 21:21:23
Look at it like this! City would of been hoping spurs won today! But they didn’t now spurs are fighting even more for a top 4 finish so city will be against a different animal when they play spurs and like wise against utd! Not a hope do either spurs or Utd want to be playin Astro football on a Thursday winters nite in Russia so like it or Not they are playing for their lives! And u can say likewise when we play Chelsea! Plenty of twists to come yet! Just my point of view!


7.) 31 Mar 2019 21:46:25
I think if we could have them drop points one more time that would be great. we still need to do our part tho. soooooooooooo, as it has been all season, let's take it one game at a time!


8.) 31 Mar 2019 21:54:56
I think we’ll probably drop (at least) two points - ie a draw - which effectively means that City are going to need to drop four points, given their superior goal difference, for us to win the title.
It’s a tough ask now, but this team continue to confound my expectations.
We’re over six games better than 3rd spot, we should be walking this league ordinarily damnit.


9.) 31 Mar 2019 23:10:26
I think they'll drop points. The ucl is their priority and that could make a difference. Spurs could take them. Utd will get at least a draw.

We just have to win all ours now. And they all look winnable.


10.) 31 Mar 2019 22:45:40
If you said to me we’d drop two points the rest of the season, i would take that. May not be enough, but I don’t think not taking max points is a failure at all. Keep the pressure on is all we can do, city seem relaxed but now we have beaten spurs it will mount, if we beat Chelsea even More. They then have to beat united and spurs and it doesn’t seem so easy.

{Ed0333's Note - I honestly don’t think we’ll drop points. I’m not sure Southampton is the insurmountable mountain everybody thinks they are and on Chelsea’s showing today well rip Chelsea a new butt hole. If we need to beat wolves on the last day of the season to win the title we will. Famous last words hey!


11.) 31 Mar 2019 23:37:16
Before the game, I wanted to post that THIS Spurs game was the game we really needed to win and thank goodness, we won. Don't know how we won BUT we won. Now, we go to Saints where again, we have to win cos City would have smashed Cardiff before then.

Here is the problem for City. They have a three game cliff-hanger vs Spurs in the PL and CL and judging by the intensity, quality, energy and desperation they played with today in search of finishing in the top 4, City will have it ALL to do against them after esp. after you add Utd, Palace and Burnley, ALL away from home to the mix. The ideal scenario is that City drops points twice cos that way we have a buffer should we drop any more points this season. here's to hoping this happens.


12.) 31 Mar 2019 23:40:09
I just want them to lose every game now.


13.) 01 Apr 2019 00:29:43
maybe cardiff will turn up resilient after the shambles of today.


14.) 01 Apr 2019 01:41:01
This last minute win will be huge for the boys. There will be tough moments ahead for sure, but we seem to be developing a habit of winning ugly late in tough games through sheer will.


15.) 01 Apr 2019 03:09:03
I think if City are going to lose points it is going to be somewhere innocuous like at home to Cardiff! So I'm all in on Cardiff U23s holding City out for 90+ mins!


16.) 01 Apr 2019 05:19:57
Cardiff will tear city a new backside.
More importantly city play tottenham thrice in two weeks. They surely can't win all 3. Tottenham if the loose the epl clash are out of top 4, same for united. They should not be easy games for city.

I only fear the city game because it is coming right after we travel to portugal. Its imperative we finish the champions league tie at anfield so we can rest some players for the Portugal trip and unleash them on chelsea. Chelsea are a good team. We lost the title last time in the chelsea game, there cannot be any scope for deja vu's.


17.) 01 Apr 2019 11:27:59
Have to win every game from here to have a chance at winning the league. Simple as that.


 

 

17 Mar 2019 18:27:49
Wouldn't it be lovely if little Mane finished top goalscorer!

GeorgeT

1.) 17 Mar 2019 18:44:09
Was just thinking the same. Be just like a horse coming like a train in the last 10 furlongs of the grand national and pipping it at the post. His work rate is unbelievable and if he finished top goalscorer, it would be some achievement.

He's a team player though and I'd say he would be the type of player to square it to salah against wolves for him to get golden boot.

As long as we win the league, I'm sure both would give it to kane or aguero though.


2.) 17 Mar 2019 19:57:53
10 curling is 1 mike and 1 quarter. I don't think a horse could move like a train for that long.


3.) 17 Mar 2019 22:44:45
At risk of blowing my own horn, I had a feeling at the start of the season, this would be a big year for him, and he would be our top scorer - not over yet and hopefully salah and him both have a storming finish, but he is as key as anyone for us now.


 

 

02 Feb 2019 18:28:38
Just seen a list of our homegrown players in our squad and with the possibility of Milner, Lallana, and Studge, going in the summer, surely we're going to have to buy some homegrown/ English players in the summer?

I guess it would make sense to keep Harry Wilson even just to help make up the numbers!

Anyone else have a bit more awareness on the rules and our current squad and potentially what we would need to do in the summer? From what I remember I didn't think you could just register a bunch of youth players?

Cheers,

GeorgeT

Will those permitted HG numbers be changed anytime soon Ed002? And if so, what kind of figures are being discussed?

{Ed002's Note - A while ago Greg Dyke proposed decreasing it by four with two having to be youth products. That was rejected.}


2.) 02 Feb 2019 19:40:46
Maybe we can find a nice backup gk hg.

Promoting some of the young lads surely couldn’t do any harm. Brewster, Wilson, Jones and Lewis surely couldn’t do any worse than Origi, Sturridge, Lallana and Moreno have when called upon this season.


5.) 03 Feb 2019 07:01:50
AW - I'm sure they could perform in snippets. But we're talking about all year around, training, being legit options off the bench or to start games. I don't know if any of those youth can do that.

{Ed001's Note - that would be a lot more than Lallana has done and equal what Sturridge has done, so why not?}


6.) 03 Feb 2019 09:11:09
Faithinworks ask yourself which group of 4 you'd rather have for next season, the younger group or Sturridge, Moreno etc. At least the young boys will play with some energy and eagerness and Wilson has being the best player of the lot this year.


7.) 03 Feb 2019 09:13:11
Sturridge started the season so lively and so good. But I think he became uninterested as game started to pass. I don't know the reason but when called upon now he just seems to play out the game and go home.


8.) 03 Feb 2019 10:59:04
Doesn't Robertson class as HG. I always thought Scotland was included in the HG quota. My assumption was it was UK not England which mattered for this. Might be wrong, I'm sure the eds could clarify.

Brewster, Wilson coming in next season with one or two others to be backup to current team would help. I think another 1 or 2 HG players would be good though. Backup keeper could be useful for this.

{Ed001's Note - Scotland does not count.}


9.) 03 Feb 2019 11:02:03
Just realised Brewster doesn't need to be included in 25 man squad because he is Under 21.


10.) 03 Feb 2019 11:16:31
Back in the 80's and early 90's home grown was any UK country and Ireland if my memory serves me correctly but one if the eds will correct me if I'm wrong.


11.) 03 Feb 2019 11:28:54
Grabara homegrown?

{Ed002's Note - Grabara will count as HG when he reurns from loan.}


12.) 03 Feb 2019 12:30:17
Sorry, should have asked of both together but would Kelleher also be homegrown?

{Ed002's Note - Yes. In simple terms the rules are currently, regardless where born, to be HG the player needs to be playing in England or Wales for a full three years between 16 and 21.}


13.) 03 Feb 2019 15:14:30
Granada, Kelleher, TAA, Gomez, Lewis, Hen do, Ox, Jones, Wilson nd Brewster going forward so. more than enough.

2nd choice goalkeepers get so few minutes, especially at lfc currently, that I think it makes sense to promote someone like Grabara to number 2. If we get some lucky draws in the cup competition then perhaps he can get some early games against lesser teams where there will be less pressure anyway.

We can then bring in a 3rd choice who is perhaps a much older player on a free who had a lot of experience and would act almost as an additional goalkeeping coach.

If we play Fabinho CB and Milner RB then we are left with only Hendo and Kieta in midfield as Gini is also injured.

Hopefully Matip is fit enough because he'll need to play CB with Milner or Fabinho RB!

Goodness me these injuries!

Appreciate the info, even if half the stuff you say turns out to be nonsense it's still nice to have some rumours to read once in a while!

Looking forward to the window opening now so we can have more rumours flying round this site, perhaps a visit from our old pal Macca, and maybe even some cryptic messages from the mystical wonderdog Ed2.

Think I remember Biscan being on free kicks at one point? A bit Hamman-esque.

Lfc website has a vintage clothes section where they sell old kits etc from previous seasons. Might not have exactly what you want but worth a look?

Couldn't belive that the sky sports website gave Matip man of the match!

His positional play recently has been awful and I blame him for Saints goal event though it seemed VVD got the blame.

Will be great to have Gomez back although after the Chelsea game we will have a few easier games so we won't need him as much anyway. I'm sure if we'd had Gomez and VVD at the back all season we would be flying clear at the top of the league.

Was going to write this! Annoys me that so many teams give up when playing city.

Yes city are brilliant but I wish teams would atleast try rather than just sit back and let city walk 4 or 5 goals in without breaking a sweat.

Would much rather than Porto than Ajax

And also better to have Milner at LB.
