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.


 

 

23 Nov 2017 13:10:31
Any truth in the rumours that we've enquired about a Jan loan for Draxler?

If so, perhaps as a short term replacement for Coutinho?

GeorgeT

{Ed002's Note - As I have explained previously Draxler is seen as an option. However, there are difficulties with the player right now as he is saying he wants to stay and would like a return to Germany if he leaves. PSG would sell in January and would be open to a loan with a commitment to buy - whether they would be open to just a loan is another matter.}


1.) 23 Nov 2017 13:26:19
Cheers for the reply ed. Would be surprised if he did come in but couldn't be a bad signing

Ta.


2.) 23 Nov 2017 14:35:47
I will be fuming if this happens. Just concentrate on signing some defensive minded players first. Keep adding players like Draxler to the already stacked forward line we have got whilst persisting with the shambles of a defense, and Klopp may well be in charge of the most lopsided and imbalanced LFC squad in history!


3.) 23 Nov 2017 16:14:42
Indian Buzzer, we have Couts leaving mate and we need to replace him. Draxler would be a good move imo. But if he only wants to play in Germany as ed has said then it sounds like a non starter anyway.


4.) 23 Nov 2017 16:42:58
So is it just a loan only we are interested in ed without a commitment to buy? Or not sure at this stage.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea, I explained what I know.}


5.) 23 Nov 2017 17:13:27
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.

Want to contribute to the style vs results argument going on at the moment.

Now I have 2 kids and rarely get any free time at all to watch Liverpool play but when I do, that is my down time and to honest I think I'd rather we played some good football and the games were enjoyable to watch than the games being boring and we're successful.

I'm sure a lot of people will disagree but at the end of the day I'm a football fan who enjoys watching the game more than I enjoy looking at our position in the table.

I'm sure my view point might change abit towards the end of the season if we end up with another trophyless season but hope you get my point, would you all really be happy if Liverpool won a few trophies this year but you didn't actually enjoy watching any games?

GeorgeT

1.) 21 Oct 2018 07:21:50
As a 25 year old who has obviously never seen us win the league, I’d take a 1-0 win with 1 shot every game and 89 mins of sideways and backwards passing.

I get the sentiment of want to watch good football, but good football had got us 8th place finishes in recent years.

I don’t even think our issues come from us not playing good football, it’s that the front 3 don’t seem to be clicking yet. Once they click we will start scoring 3/ 4 a game and it will all look much better. Because the other players know we’re not scoring, they are taking less chances on the ball because we can’t afford to concede.


2.) 21 Oct 2018 07:42:30
Understand your point George, but as a bloke brought up in the halcyon days of the 70's, and sublime footy of the 80's, I just want the title. I left Liverpool in 91 when we were defending champions, and we haven't won it since.
Having said that, unless our performances pick up significantly, I can't see our luck continuing to hold. Years back, United would grind out wins, as did arsenal, and go on to win the league. But, they weren't up against this expensively assembled team of superstars that are man city.

{Ed025's Note - i dont think liverpool shop in the bargain basement anymore either burkey, city are a very good team as are liverpool but its because they have good managers mate its not just about the money imo..


3.) 21 Oct 2018 07:46:41
Yes, I would. Actually, these 0-1 solid away wins make a refreshing change from the silly, gung-ho away performances we had become accustomed to previously. Watching Alisson, Van Dijk and co bore the daylights out of the opposition, picking up clean sheet after clean sheet whilst barely conceding any chances in the game itself, is easily as satisfying as winning 3-2 every week.
If you want to watch a team that plays nice stuff but loses, use your downtime to watch Bournemouth every week and then check up on our result afterwards.
This is as entertaining a Liverpool side as I can remember.


4.) 21 Oct 2018 07:51:29
I want to be entertained too. But there is one thing I want more when it comes to sports. That’s To win (fair and square of course. ) I hope we win every game just like today for the rest of the season. I hope we go down as the most boring team to ever win the league. The heavy metal football was super exciting, but when we hit our bad patch last season, we weren’t getting results. We are joint top this season. Keep the boredom coming!


5.) 21 Oct 2018 09:26:47
There needs to be a balance, but we’re only 25% of the way through the season.


6.) 21 Oct 2018 10:43:32
A balance would be the preferred option, without doubt. Just to play devils advocate, those who would take a 1-0 with only one shot every game, would you like Jose in charge next season? I suspect I know the answer to that and guess that would prove the balance argument. We’re doing very well results wise but for me we’re walking a tightrope every game. Hopefully the front 3 will remember how they did things last year and we can add another couple of goals per game to go with the clean sheets. After all, city are already +10 better off in goal difference so if things are going to be as tight as people often suggest, that could become important later on.


7.) 21 Oct 2018 13:27:54
Everyone is looking for balance, as LFC is not the only team looking for that. The issue is that as long as we keep winning while at the same time, trying to fix our obvious issues, I am cool with that cos there is NO way in hell that Klopp is telling them to go out there and purposely make bad decision in the final third. If I could persevere with our team not being able to keep a clean sheet for 3 seasons then I can persevere with us trying to fix our issues while at the same time, being tied with City at the top. Just saying.


 

 

10 Sep 2018 12:55:13
Blimey who would have expected Liverpool to have 2 CB's nominated for the World XI!?

Lovren and VVD in case you didn't already know.

Appreciate that it's unlikely that either will make the final list but a nice change to see our defence getting some praise after all these years!

GeorgeT

1.) 10 Sep 2018 13:06:37
I'm not so sure about VVD not making it. I wouldn't be surprised if he did. Not won anything since he joined LFC, but he's not made missteps or huge mistakes either.


2.) 10 Sep 2018 13:27:23
Would it not be a surprise if Ramos and Varane don’t get the nod?


3.) 11 Sep 2018 01:15:03
Unfortunately it will go to Ramos.


4.) 11 Sep 2018 14:30:12
Ramos and Varane most likely to get the nod . And Lovern will have a good shout, he is a world cup finalist and stand out performer in that tournament . VVD very unlikely . Our opinion (LFC supporters) is very different to those so called experts making these decisions.


 

 

22 Aug 2018 09:35:26
ED2,

Following the announcement of Levi's becoming LFC's official denim partner, do you now feel that LFC has the final piece of the jigsaw to be successful this season?

My only concern is that a denim kit may cause chafing on wet days.

GeorgeT

{Ed002's Note - I am sure the dry cleaning partner can sort it out.}


1.) 22 Aug 2018 11:03:45
Classic Ed002!


2.) 22 Aug 2018 11:57:27
We now need a Fabric Softener Partner. 🙃.


3.) 22 Aug 2018 14:26:00
Official denim partner?!? - seriously?


4.) 22 Aug 2018 17:44:30
Prefer denim to the pay day loan vultures if anyone is going to be a partner. Personally boycotting any club gear with Bet V***** emblazoned on it.


5.) 22 Aug 2018 19:21:06
Love Levi's jeans.


6.) 22 Aug 2018 20:22:32
You hear some odd things in football sometimes, much like having an official club denim sponsor.

I also heard that Tottenhams new stadium has a Cheese Room.

Bizarre.


7.) 23 Aug 2018 06:53:30
Prefer Diesel and Armani jeans tbh.


 

 

14 Aug 2018 15:06:09
Anyone seen the video of Salah texting and driving that has been handed in to the police?

Poor guy is stuck in traffic on a main road and his car is surrounded by people trying to getting pictures and autographs, now he is accused of 'ignoring fans' and being a 'horrible man with too much money' because he didn't jump out of his car in traffic to take pictures with people or sign shirts?

Obviously he'll get in some kind of trouble with the police which is the law so fair enough but seems a bit daft that a so-called fan would have handed in the video to the police because they were pissed off at being ignored, seems a bit harsh on a guy who seems to usually have a lot of time for fans.

GeorgeT

1.) 14 Aug 2018 16:27:45
Irrelevant, he shouldn't be using his phone while driving. For me that's the most important point.


2.) 14 Aug 2018 17:14:41
Wasn't debating whether he should or shouldn't be using his phone, obviously he shouldn't. I was more just surprised that he was getting mobbed by fans on a main road whilst driving and then getting abuse for not signing shirts and posing for pictures!


3.) 14 Aug 2018 18:19:53
You just can't win sometimes, if I were getting mobbed I'd find somewhere else to look too,


4.) 14 Aug 2018 19:16:11
All the thumbs down will be people who use a hand held mobile device whilst driving.

Maybe you would change your mind at fatal traffic incidents, picking people's body parts up or telling the mother and fathers their young child has life changing injuries or killed because someone was too busy texting or updating their social media.

Fatal four issues at road traffic incidents, Speed, seatbelts, distractions and mobile devices!

{Ed025's Note - im with you baz, great player...nice guy..should know better..


5.) 15 Aug 2018 08:54:41
Absolutely should know better and shouldn't have done it, and will receive the normal penalty which for a footballer amounts to pretty much nothing.

Although he wasnt being mobbed by fans. He was being mobbed by young conscripts of a 'professional memorabilia salesman' who uses kids to get people's autographs and tries to sell them online. He's previously been involved with Mkhitaryan and Guardiola in the past year, and then making up lies when his fraud and child endangerment tactics don't work.


6.) 15 Aug 2018 15:54:20
How difficult is it for these players to employ a driver and get tinted windows? 🙄

Salah using his mobile whilst driving is personic and deserves a big fine 👍.

{Ed002's Note - Maybe cut his texting fingers off?}


7.) 16 Aug 2018 19:09:12
He was probably trying to contact security after seeing the mobs converging on him xD

Jokes aside, Bit unfair to mob a guy as he's driving like, especially with family in the car. Most celebrities do "events" for signing autographs (if they don't get caught in a coffee shop) yet players are expected to sign a contract at any time of any day at any place.


 

 

09 Aug 2018 17:09:02
Didn't realise the championship could still sign loan players until the 31st!

Guess players like Ings, Grujic, Ojo may need to head to the championship?

Also hoping that EU teams pick up Origi, Migs, Markovic.

I don't like to see us hoarding players who aren't needed.

GeorgeT

1.) 09 Aug 2018 17:28:05
Ings might still move to Southampton on loan, best of luck and fingers crossed!

I imagine Lallana will be leaving the squad as well as a couple of others in offensive positions so there might be a bit of space for him to squeeze into the squad.

I think we'll have to see how the season progresses though and what happens with someone like Gini, if he slips back into his previous inconsistency then perhaps he will leave and they'll be room for Ramsey.

I think Ramsey is a decent player and certainly could be worthwhile bringing in on a free transfer at the end of the season, I think we'll need to see how our current crop of midfielders get on though over the season and whether Ramsey would actually be an upgrade.

personally I see Clyne as 2nd choice RB this season with Gomez being an option for CB. Matip will likely spend a lot of time injured so I reckon they'll be enough games for Gomez at CB and Clyne is decent enough to play a few cup games at RB.

Ed, Know its not LFC but do you expect Hazard to end up at Madrid? Personally, I think he would step up another level at Madrid and could quite likely end up as being regarded as the best in the world.

Do you know if Madrid are genuinely interested and would they spent probably £100m+ for a 28 year old?

GeorgeT

{Ed001's Note - they will spend whatever it takes if he is the biggest star around. If he can continue his season the way he has started then yes.}

What happened was awful, but I guess the one little silver lining is that the website has been filled with positive messages of support. I'm sure Salah will be overwhelmed with the huge amount of support that has been sent out over the last couple of days.

LFC fans have actually backed up the famous YNWA statement! Great to see.

Big shout out to you Salah, you've clearly got a lot of fans and I think you may have moved into the position of being our favourite Salah!

Hope that you recover well YNWA.
