I haven't really seen us linked with any significant names this year which is the first time in a while. Has anyone got any knowledge of who we are looking at for the summer?


1.) 07 Apr 2019 09:24:39
Memphis Depay.

2.) 07 Apr 2019 10:04:03
You said you wanted a rumour - he is certainly not who I want!

3.) 07 Apr 2019 10:17:55
I look at the Depay thing and think here is a talented player who was discarded by United too quickly and mismanaged by them with who has started showing he’s a very good player with a point to prove. Much like a certain Mr Salah. I’m pretty sure he’d be happy working under Klopp surrounded by familiar faces such as van Dijk and Wijnaldum and he’d be a success. And where better to rub United’s nose in it than here?

4.) 07 Apr 2019 10:23:37
I have heard the following .

Jay Dasilva - Young left back from Chelsea on loan with Bristol City with those having first option on him apparently but another English lad.
Adrien Rabiot - The PSG player but Eds have more substantial info that he is off elsewhere, still sticking to my sources.
Danny Wellbeck - I just heard about this late last night - he is on a free and used to being a squad player and does give us options up front and is English.

I thin the lack of names is due to who is leaving, I mean we have Champions League football next season so we are in a great place from a recruitment point of view - not sure how the accountant sees it though.

{Ed025's Note - im sure that ED01 will be delighted that danny wellbeck it being linked to you KC, i think hes a big fan mate.. :)

5.) 07 Apr 2019 10:46:45
Hi Ed025 - Wellbeck is a wild one and I must admit but put a smile on my face once I heard it as my mate talked about it as if he was stone cold sober . but he is a decent squad player if he can stay fit.

6.) 07 Apr 2019 11:51:36
Welbeck makes zero sense as he is a poor version of Origi.

7.) 07 Apr 2019 12:02:38
I’d rather we kept origi than wasted time with a crock like Welbeck.

8.) 07 Apr 2019 12:26:14
I can't see us going for depay, albeit he has some really positive attributes but he has no sense of defensive responsibility which all three of our current forwards relish putting him out of klopps radar for me. Plus I think it may also be time for his contract renewal and wouldn't surprise me if his agent or 'entourage' have been talking to local media. I love the 'entourage' phrase the media use. Footballers haha. How many assistants do these people honestly need?
Sorry, I digress. Back to business, so, welbeck? Really? Come on. We may as well keep Studge if we want an English sicknote with some OK to good YouTube footage.
I'd like fullbacks for either side or somebody who can cover both sides equally as good. I'm not convinced by wan bissaka or sessegnon tbh. I think due to their names appearing in the media regularly makes them safe bets for a lot of fans, having said that they are young and do have great potential but the figures being mentioned are crazy for players who positionally leave a lot to be desired and having no international or European experience.

9.) 07 Apr 2019 13:43:24
Memphis Depay I could understand, as he moved to united too soon and was not ready for the step up.
Danny Welbeck?, must mean Sturridge is leaving and there is a place in the treatment room available.

10.) 07 Apr 2019 15:28:14
Greenflash totally agree with you on welbeck but depay, yes he probably did move too soon but he turned us down in the same transfer window for utd and I just don't think he has learnt about the other side of the game, the boring stuff that isn't flashy but just as important, especially to a klopp type player. The fight and spirit in this current team is what I believe is our greatest strength added with the individual qualities. Hendo and milner changed the saints game due to their fight and verbal aggression that lifted the other players. Depay has neither of these qualities in my book.



18 Nov 2018 15:43:57
Can I ask who are Liverpool genuinely looking at this season with a view to Summer transfers.


1.) 18 Nov 2018 16:59:25
I don’t see much happening without a substantial amount of sales, we have stretched the budget in the last 18 months so maybe 1/ 2 additions if we can move a fair few on.



11 Feb 2018 07:36:57
Is Leon Bailey of Leverkusen of interest to us instead of Lemar?


1.) 11 Feb 2018 09:26:59
Different players mate. Bailey is more of a goal scoring wide forward. Lemar in contrast, is a creative attacking midfielder. Bailey plays on the right so he can cut inside and shoot. Lemar plays on the left so he can whip in crosses.

The only similarity is they're both left footed. Lemar is the type of player we news though, as we have goal scorers short in supply of good chances. Bailey would be a direct replacement for Salah, and is just another player who takes chances more than he looks to create them. Both fantastic players though.

2.) 11 Feb 2018 11:42:31
Ah sure let's just get both 😉.

3.) 11 Feb 2018 11:41:07
I would love him over anyone including Pulisic. Bailey is a cracking player and would flourish under Klopp! Arguably the best player in the league this season!

4.) 11 Feb 2018 12:12:38
MK, maybe Salahs on the move again.

5.) 12 Feb 2018 06:15:53
Salah will more than likely be going to Real in the summer. Bailey would be a good replacement.

6.) 12 Feb 2018 07:17:05
Salah will not be going anywhere this summer.

7.) 12 Feb 2018 09:10:09
I agree with Carragold. There is no way i can see Liverpool selling Salah this Summer.

8.) 12 Feb 2018 10:38:05
I think there is a genuine possibility, Real will be in the market for forward players and who better than Salah? They have the spending power to offer a huge bid and the lure of Real is huge, coupled with what will be a big pay rise and what we know about his agent contacting them already I think we will have a huge task on our hands keeping him.

9.) 12 Feb 2018 13:11:13
Cobra, REal's first choice targets are Neymar, Hazard and one of Griezmann and Icardi. I doubt they will sign Salah also.

10.) 12 Feb 2018 14:24:57
Lemar is not worth the 90m they are asking for which is why Klopp reportedly has walked away and frankly, I agree with him.

11.) 12 Feb 2018 15:26:17
Doesn't Bailey predominantly play on the left anyway, so could be a mane replacement? Or Salah up too mane right and firmino just off them?

12.) 12 Feb 2018 15:52:16
Do you know for sure IB? i thought Barcelona are favourites for Griezmann? And I’m not sure Neymar is off this summer.

13.) 12 Feb 2018 21:58:42
Cobra let's not get carried away, when Salah signed for us most thought he wasn't good enough. It's his 1st top season, hazard for example has done it for years. There are many players real could go for. This is real we're talking about. if they are really looking to sign 3 attackers they are looking to replace Benzema, Bale and Ronaldo! All 3 would probably walk into most teams in the world, including ours.

14.) 12 Feb 2018 23:06:41
Id like to think Salah is a little more humble and has a little more about him than to jump ship at the first opportunity .

15.) 15 Feb 2018 12:49:20
Bale is very injury prone and a big risk at the wages he wants. Most likely to goto Man Utd who can afford the risk
Benzema is a nut job who is more interested in being a wannabe gangster than in being a serious footballer - another big risk who would require a major change in our team for us to accommodate.

Leaves Ronaldo who whilst a brilliant footballer and would be a great example to our youngsters on how training hard can maximise your chances in the game, is increasingly showing the affects of age. At the wages he would command, it would be huge pressure on Klopp to play him instead of Mane or Salah.
So my conclusion is no they all wouldn't walk into any team in the world - certainly not ours.

TAA and Robertson need some stiffer competition to help them raise their game and take them to the next level.


1.) 07 Apr 2019 08:41:40
Both fullbacks are key to our system and our attacking play and they aren’t positions that teams normally chop and change regularly with success. In this day and age full backs are not cheap either and if we are looking at players that are of the calibre of Robbo and Trent then that could be 30 mill plus apiece for 2 players who would spend considerable amount of time on the bench. Best case would be buying a player that could play rb and lb to a high standard but there’s not many if any out there. A lot is being made of some of our youngsters so hopefully some of them can step up and give both fullbacks a rest when needed. Ed has mentioned in the past the Trent could move into midfield so if we are going to spend on a full back perhaps a rb which would kill 2 birds with one stone.

{Ed001's Note - both Spurs and Man City have rotated full-backs regularly, when they have had the option to do so and it does not seem to have held either back.}

2.) 07 Apr 2019 08:51:04
ED001 very true that mate but I think City are an exception to the cause due to the amount of money they have spent on all of their full backs. From the spurs fans I know they get quite irritated with the full backs chopping and changing and have told me it’s affected the progress of Trippier and especially Rose who they believe has digressed. What full backs would you like to see us go for Ed? Apologies if this has been asked before If it has I’ve missed it.

{Ed001's Note - Trippier has no progress to make because he is not that good. Rose regressed (digressed is a completely different meaning) because of injuries which were put down to him being overworked initially. Fans may well get irritated but the full-backs are the ones covering the most ground and most likely to suffer burnout. As for City, they have one left back but still rotated in midfielders to give him a rest before his injuries. Not sure how that makes them an exception? They were doing it before Pep arrived as well.

I would love to see us go for Wan-Bissaka, though it seems highly unlikely and Gaya, though again unlikely.}

3.) 07 Apr 2019 09:11:33
Seen a crazy stat on wan bissaka don't know if it was right or not

Something like he's won 94% of his tackles this season.

4.) 07 Apr 2019 09:14:10
The answer has to be developing and also buying versatile, quick players that are able to cover several positions - CB that can go to FB, FB that can play higher up, and a player that can potentially cover the front three or at least both wide roles.
Assuming Moreno leaves, that’s a left position required, RB not necessarily as urgent with Gomez’ return but it also depends on Milner, CB possibly depending on any outs, and a front man.
I really hate the thought of Coutinho coming back to the Premiership to play for another side, if he moves let’s hope it’s to another European team.

5.) 07 Apr 2019 09:28:13
The way we use our FBs is particularly important to our attacking threat, and is also very demanding on them. We’re lucky to have Trent and Robbo but we definitely need a backup (or two) with Moreno prone to errors, and Clyne incapable of providing the attacking outlet we require.

Would love to see Wan Bissaka brought in and Lewis stepping up from the academy.

6.) 07 Apr 2019 09:36:57
Ed001 I meant City as an exception due to their financial resources which allows them to have 2 players of similar quality / value for each position. Ie are Liverpool in a position to spend 50-60 mill plus on 2 rotating full backs for next season? Would be great if we are. Cheers for the digress correction, I couldn’t have messed that one up even more if I tried lol.

{Ed001's Note - but if you look at City's full-backs they are not really similar quality. Walker and Mendy are defo better than the rotation options. Danilo is barely good enough and the options at left back are an attacking midfielder in Zinchenko and the always injured and not very good central midfielder Delph. To be honest, full-backs do not have to be particularly outstanding in a team that gives them freedom to get forward as the defending is done by centrebacks and midfield. They are little more than a warm body defensively, so having a great one is not as important to the performance. Especially for a team like City, who often do not even use full-backs to get forward and provide width anyway.}

7.) 07 Apr 2019 10:36:07
Eds02 suggested Laxalt as a option for the left, how easy to get him is another matter.

8.) 07 Apr 2019 13:07:40
How about Lloyd Kelly from Bristol?

9.) 07 Apr 2019 16:48:42
What I’ve read about the young lad from Bristol City sounds good.
A LB-come-CB, sounds ideal.

10.) 07 Apr 2019 21:28:09
Well said, Ed01. To add to your comments, City's fullbacks tuck in as midfielders esp. when playing against weak opposition who don't attack them. This allows them to have their midfielders to overload on either flank along with their wide forwards to heap more pressure on the opposition out wide. LFC do not do that with their fullbacks.

We play a very narrow game esp. with the front three so the width has to come from the FB's and quality delivery is key at this point. Then the double pivot in midfield provide cover for them whenever we lose the ball and are facing a counter. Therefore, we need FB's who can do exactly what Robbo and TAA can do or just about and hopefuly, we can get them this summer.



05 Apr 2019 22:15:15
Great result tonight. Some small spots tonight, we've secured at least third place and obviously top four. In the context of this season it's small but shows progress. 82 points is a great result already.

Liverpool Summer Transfers

Hi all

Apart from our known interest in Laxalt, who else do we think we may go for in the summer? Can anyone update?

Sorry Ed02 I know you gave some suggestions of potential players but were your view I think rather than who Liverpool were after.


1.) 14 Feb 2019 22:34:05
It wasnt Ed 02 views, it was what he knows from his vast knowledge. If there is someone who knows about Liverpools interest in certain players its the Eds, very rarely posters gets it right most of the time its just guess work.

2.) 15 Feb 2019 09:25:48
I'll put your post down to naivety mate as i don't believe you meant any offence but Ed02's knowledge of prospective transfers not just for Liverpool but globally, is amazing. You should look up the sharkopod.

In fact Ed02 knowledge of everything football is mind blowing. We are incredibly lucky to have him along with Ed01, 25 and 333 with all the time they put into this site. So thank you Eds.

3.) 15 Feb 2019 19:54:13
Ed02 is a genius when he talks transfers in general, LFC or anywhere in Europe or around the world. His knowledge is unrivaled, INO.

04 Jan 2019 20:47:21
Not sure why we loan out a right back when we've got injuries and a tired squad.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 20:52:23
We loaned out Clyne because the club want rid and have adequate backup.

{Ed025's Note - and hes as much use as a chocolate fire guard..

2.) 04 Jan 2019 21:05:27
Who said the team is tired? I hope you’re not basing that on yesterday’s antics because our right back looked far from tired.

3.) 04 Jan 2019 21:05:13
Lol, would not go that far Ed025 but Clyne's time was up at LFC. We cannot carry passengers if we are planning on winning the League.

{Ed025's Note - thats what i meant max.. :)

4.) 04 Jan 2019 21:31:48
Clyne is a liability defensively (and not very good in attack) and thankfully we no longer need him. He was on the pitch for a few minutes against arsenal and should have been penalised for that clumsy challenge in the box. He’s just not very good, never has been!

5.) 04 Jan 2019 21:34:59
There's plenty out there about Clyne on the internet, wash our hands wish him well and take whatever we can get.

You never know getting away from his youthful area might help him out.

6.) 04 Jan 2019 21:57:16
OP, where did you hear or see that we have a tired team or have injuries apart from Gomez and Matip who will bne back in a couple of weeks? Klopp has wanted Clyne gone since the summer of 2016 cos he is not good enuff offensively and defensively and Ed01 also mentioned that Klopp has a major problem with his "unprofessional lifestyle". We have Gomez or Milner who can step in there if need be so chill out, man.

7.) 04 Jan 2019 23:10:19
Spot on Redwolf. Our team doesn’t look tired. No idea where that comment came from, other than the shared disappointment in yesterday’s spankin.

8.) 04 Jan 2019 23:17:13
Dont see the point in bashing players who are gone.

Let them go and wish them well.

{Ed0333's Note - im ambivalent towards Clyne the footballer. He mugged us off for millions of pounds, stole a living at Liverpool football club, was absolute garbage as a player and was more bothered about partying than soccer. As a human being I wish him and his family health and happiness.

9.) 04 Jan 2019 23:43:29
Or a waterproof tea bag Ed025?

10.) 05 Jan 2019 01:14:04
Not too bothered about Clyne leaving. Offered nothing going forward and his defensive capabilities are highly overrated. Rather put Milner there or give one of the young kids a shot.

11.) 05 Jan 2019 08:30:21
Let’s face it he’s crxp, that’s why he’s gone on loan. I hope Bournemouth buy him. Poor defender clueless going forward and rubbish at post match interviews.

{Ed025's Note - i take it your not his agent then reaper?.. :)

12.) 05 Jan 2019 08:51:42
Ha nice Ed025. No I’m his gardener. His geraniums are crxp too.

13.) 05 Jan 2019 13:01:22
Wow, Ed0333. Tell us how you really feel. Seriously tho, I knew Clyne was a crap footballer and Ed01 mentioned that Klopp was fed up with his "unprofessional lifestyle" BUT I did not know it was that bad.

{Ed0333's Note - yes even when proffesional athletes have the world at their feet they can be complete idiots.

14.) 05 Jan 2019 16:39:43
Hi Ed’s.
In terms of th clyne deal I haven’t seen anything mentioned so I presume there’s been no loan fee paid and any idea in terms of wages what Bournemouth are contributing or if there is any deal for them to take him permanently at the end of the season. I understand that they’ve had a few serious injuries in that position so it’s probably just for the season. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - You presumptions are all wrong.}

Hmm interesting. Not seen us really linked with anyone that I know that well. Brandt and Laxalt seem recurring names. I think as I've said before we need a right back option, a striker to give a different option and maybe left back cover.


{Ed0333's Note - Brandt can play anywhere across the front.

It's a shame it's pretty much out of our hands and relying on others. So far we've only dropped 17 points the entire season which is pretty fantastic.

All we can do is turn up, play well and win our games. We should win all our remaining games. I know well enough that it's not as simple enough. Our points total would have been enough to win the league in other seasons. I think Man City still have a slight edge, but if Man Utd can turn up and give them a game I think they can beat City. Also think Spurs could get a draw at City too.


{Ed0333's Note - I think spurs will rollover against city and our only chance is United getting a draw. Saying that I have complete faith that we will be champions.
