Buvac now being touted for the Arsenal job.

1.) 01 May 2018 12:17:13
Makes sense as to why he must go on gardening leave. No bust up but rather the Arses wanted gengen pressing so much they had to go with Buvac. Can't have Buvac know all our transfer target eh.

2.) 01 May 2018 12:27:51
Stranger things have happened but I’d be VERY surprised.

3.) 01 May 2018 13:45:01
Wouldn't be a huge surprise Ron. Arsenal have a lot of Ex Dortmund staff behind the scenes now, and 2 ex players on the pitch.

If you can't get Klopp, then then next best thing would be to pick his "brains".

4.) 01 May 2018 14:31:46
Buvac doesn’t say “um-a-wella” enough for an Arsena managerl. Jokes aside, I hope we keep him in some capacity. Top bloke and good luck if his career takes him elsewhere.

5.) 01 May 2018 15:22:56
Very good point about the Dortmund connections at arsenal, MK. I’d still be a bit surprised as you’d imagine they would want to go with a proven manager as opposed to a number 2. Some of the very best number 2’s have struggled so it would be a gamble for them. Perhaps he would fancy a crack at being the main man though.

6.) 01 May 2018 15:56:14
This rumour has far more legs because the same Serbian outfit that broke the news about Klopp and Buvac coming to us is the same outlet that has put this out there. Buvac would be an extremely sensible call for Arsenal. I thought it was always understood between Klopp and Buvac that both of them would manage if the chance and desireable options arose.

7.) 01 May 2018 16:35:29
Lfc Hopeful, thing to remember is that Arsenal have a very good director of football in Michael Zorc who has yet to really put his stamp on things because Arsene Wenger is still there. Zorc has clearly been picking the transfers since his arrival though.

Buvac wouldn't be doing much in terms of management. He'd simply be a head coach.

8.) 01 May 2018 23:51:14
So Geggnepressing at Arsenal FC 😂😂.

9.) 01 May 2018 23:53:27
Good luck to him, except against us of course.

10.) 02 May 2018 10:40:36
It must be for individual movie on Severus Snape shot near Highbury.

{Ed002's Note - Michael Zorc isn't director of football at Arsenal.}

11.) 02 May 2018 18:39:01
Michael Zorc should only work for owners called Orson.

“Zorc calling Orson, come in, Orson”.



09 Jan 2018 08:50:20
Would Liverpool go back in for Alex Teixeira.

{Ed002's Note - I wouldn't think so.}

1.) 09 Jan 2018 10:30:29
Alex Teixeira is back!

2.) 09 Jan 2018 10:50:39
Are we still being linked with Joaquin? How about Wesley Sneijder?

Loved the old style rumours where everyone thought we were signing Carlton Cole or Klaas Jan Huntelaar every window.

3.) 09 Jan 2018 11:02:01
Arda Turan was my favourite re-occuring one.

4.) 09 Jan 2018 12:00:23
Not a patch on Simao and Aimar lads.

5.) 09 Jan 2018 12:46:45
Everyone forgetting Keisuke Honda :D.

6.) 09 Jan 2018 13:30:25
Or Kovacic. oh wait that was just Harry ;)

7.) 09 Jan 2018 13:55:49
Don’t forget Ken Auero PMSL!

8.) 09 Jan 2018 14:48:37
don’t forget Correa lads, every single window for the last several years his name has popped up, i’m shocked and disappointed no media outlet has mentioned him already this window! 😂.

9.) 09 Jan 2018 14:54:00
That’s not an old rumor Kwhizz, that’s happening.

10.) 09 Jan 2018 15:01:41
Red Dawn, I posted on the 'Other Posts' section a few days ago my lament that we will not be linked with Wesley Sneijder for the 15th consecutive window, as he has joined a Qatari team.

Wesley Snipes maybe? Playing number 47? ;)

11.) 09 Jan 2018 16:56:44
We can't afford any passengers Zed.

12.) 09 Jan 2018 18:13:06
Nice one mikeh303 i get the snipes movie reference.

13.) 09 Jan 2018 19:04:57
Gaston Ramirez!

14.) 10 Jan 2018 01:38:16
I thought sammy kadiera was a regular crop up.



07 Aug 2017 11:55:23
Ed are psg still interested in coutinho.

{Ed002's Note - The interest is there but they have other players they would prefer ahead of him and they have done nothing about Coutinho, so it is unlikely he will be moving there this summer.}

19 Sep 2018 07:52:49
What a team we've got. Thanks jurgen for bringing European nights like that back. Haven't a clue what Gary Neville was on about.

1.) 19 Sep 2018 08:20:07
It was interesting that even PSG didn’t exactly go toe-to-toe with us, they were still wary of getting caught too far forward.
They’ve got some class players, no doubt about that, and some of their play was lovely to behold but the better team won.
That’s the most pleasing thing for me, it wasn’t a fluke at all.

2.) 19 Sep 2018 10:52:02
What I find really good is the fact we have some quality players on the bench who may not be game changers they are not something to look and wonder if a forward, mid or defender is injured we are not thinking oh s*** we are going to struggle here. Not knocking previous players, just that some were not good enough.



10 Jul 2018 08:03:04
Anyone else worried about England. I mean we're two wins away from sir raheem sterling and sir Ashley young.

1.) 10 Jul 2018 08:21:40
Not bothered if that happens. If England win it’s on merit. Plus Sir Jordan Henderson sounds good to me.

2.) 10 Jul 2018 08:22:21
Is there a summer tournament this year? I thought that was next year.

3.) 10 Jul 2018 08:29:22
Sadly they'll only knight the captain. One of the reasons I'm not sure I want England to win it. If Kane gets any more ego massaging his head will be bigger than Maguire's!

4.) 10 Jul 2018 09:01:26
I’m terrified folks, TERRIFIED!

5.) 10 Jul 2018 09:12:10
WTF guys!
Worried about England winning the world cup. Nonsense I'd be over the moon if we won it. Best thing ever and makes up for the ECL loss.
The only downside for me as a LFC fan is the Ox and Gomez misisng from the squads.

Knighthoods have been a joke for many years.

6.) 10 Jul 2018 09:16:51
'makes up for the ECL loss'


7.) 10 Jul 2018 09:23:40
Makes up for the ECL loss? Metaphorically speaking, I spit on that statement!

If i had to choose, I'd rather Liverpool beat Tramere Rovers in the friendly, than England beat Croatia in the semi 😂

I like seeing England do well but only because they generally have more Liverpool players than other countries have.

8.) 10 Jul 2018 09:29:08
Liverpool football club. That is all.

9.) 10 Jul 2018 09:29:16
Salah for me seeing England win the World Cup would make up for the loss of the ECL. It is something I doubted I could imagine seeing in my lifetime.
I felt a lot worse after the 2007 Final against Milan as we should of won that game we played the better. But got over that.

10.) 10 Jul 2018 09:31:01
It’s only really hit me today. We lost the champions league final. I’m completely gutted. No WC win for England will compensate for this I’m afraid. We lost the god damn CL final!

11.) 10 Jul 2018 09:32:00
I respect the comment but never in a million years will any England victory make up for any Liverpool loss no matter how big or small the game.
International football bores me and for me is behind the premiership and Champions league is terms of excitement
just my opinion though.

12.) 10 Jul 2018 09:34:49
Thanks MK Scouser : (

I understand what your saying but nothing can take my buzz away from how well we are doing as a nation. Of course i'd be gutted if we got to the final and lost it but actually challenging for a title is refreshing from the previous attempts.

Plus getting a top 4 spot is great but not the same as winning the league. that's what I hope for as a LFC and England fan.

13.) 10 Jul 2018 09:37:02
I seem to be on my own on this one.

But great to see this red passion from all the posters on here. #YNWA.

14.) 10 Jul 2018 09:54:18
Honestly mate, it was only light hearted. I have no problem with people being passionate about their country. I would consider myself an England fan, but I am a Liverpool Supporter. I will actively hope for Liverpool to do better whereas with England it is more of an outsider looking in kind of thing. Like watching another English team in the Champions league. I want them to win, but I'm not fussed if they don't.

15.) 10 Jul 2018 10:18:06
Haha, I don't see how it is relevant to the Champion's League Final at all. If England winning the World Cup makes you happy, that would be nice for you, but it's got nothing to do with Liverpool aside from Hendo and Trent. If Ireland won the World Cup (in a land of goblins and fairies, but bear with me here) I'd be delighted, but it would not make up for the CL heartbreak, they are totally separate things.

16.) 10 Jul 2018 10:35:03
Sir Gareth and a team of CBE's is what it would be.

17.) 10 Jul 2018 10:35:57
I was born English. I chose to be a Liverpool fan (and have been one for 40 years watching many a game at Anfield and away from home) . I am super proud to be both English and a red however if I had to choose between my country winning the WC (likely a once in a lifetime experience, hasn't happened so far) or winning the CL or top league i. e. Premier/ old 1st division (which have both happened in my lifetime already) I would want my country of birth to win every time.

Next week if we win (or lose) then I'll revert back to wanting my beloved Liverpool to win the quadruple for the next 4 years until the next WC :)

18.) 10 Jul 2018 10:37:05
Sir Trent Alexander Arnold. LOVE the sound of that.

19.) 10 Jul 2018 10:43:10
How about sir Alexander Arnold?

20.) 10 Jul 2018 11:45:51
Juergen I resent the goblins slur. The faery land cup has had enough problems as it is without faeters coming in and spitting leprechauns all over it. Ireland has a rich tradition in this tournament and one of these decades will get out of the group stages once we learn to put our jerseys on inside out. Faith and begorrah man. Faith and begorrah!

21.) 10 Jul 2018 11:48:34
Jurgen I think he knows they are seperate things. I think he means in terms of his own feelings. If England won the World Cup it would make him happy, and would therefore make up for the champions league final loss as in footballing terms, he’s seen a side he supports win on the big stage. In that regard, they are similar and I’m with you sukhyrai. It won’t make up for the loss, but it will make it easier to digest and fill a hole in my footballing heart that’s still a bit broken from that UCL final.

22.) 10 Jul 2018 12:28:08
Not sure you support LFC, if you do you would not have said that.

No way in a million years will England losing a WC final be equal to LFC losing an ECL final. We have non-England fans supporting LFC, how do you handle that?

I would take a continuous run in an ECL final over an England WC win any-day any-time.

23.) 10 Jul 2018 12:58:14
scouse not english.

24.) 10 Jul 2018 14:31:55
LFC first, Britain second. England winning would be fantastic and I would celebrate, however I would be just as happy if Wales, Scotland or Northen Ireland were ever doing well. Choice is everything. I choose LFC because I fell in love with the reds. I never had a choice about being British, and therein the connection, feeling and passion is different. I’m not saying it’s not there, it’s just different. LFC premier league over an England World Cup any day of the week, any week of the year, from now until the day I die.

25.) 10 Jul 2018 17:44:28
I want England to win the World Cup but the difference between England and Liverpool is that if England lose in the final on Sunday I’ll be miserable until Tuesday. Since Liverpoool lost to Real I’ve been miserable ever since. Not even a World Cup win will make up for it.

Generally speaking it takes a new season to start before I get over previous season’s disappointments.

26.) 10 Jul 2018 17:46:45
Romeo that is just your opinion though, not matter of fact. I’m sure the non English LFC fans support their own country and want them to do well.

Great respects to anyone who chooses to only support a club, or only support their country. But. that doesn’t make people who support both their club and country wrong Or less of a supporter. It’s not a one or the other scenario.

If England win the World Cup it brings a togetherness across the country between fans who are usually bitter towards eachother and I think that’s brilliant. But I’m still a passionate Liverpool supporter and will have the banter with them again come August.



17 May 2018 09:21:49
Hi ed what do you think of the new fifa world club cup idea. Reports suggest 50 million just for entry.

{Ed001's Note - I think it is an interesting idea that will be badly handled by FIFA and that is where the issue lies. Anything UEFA and FIFA touch is a mess.}

1.) 17 May 2018 10:02:37
Don't tell me that FIFA and UEFA are the secret brains behind GDPR and Brexit?!?!?!

{Ed001's Note - brains?}

2.) 17 May 2018 10:13:35
A 4 yearly tournament left at that sounds interesting, however we all know it’s the 1st step into the types of things ed2 has been telling us about for years and to be it would be the ruin of football as we know it.
In addition the winners are getting £100m or something? It’ll just further separate the rich from the rest. It sounds great cause we would be invited by all accounts but just imagine if we weren’t, how would you feel then. I know the game has long since changed from its roots but for me personally, global leagues are a step too far sadly.

3.) 17 May 2018 10:46:06
Do you think we will ever see a non corrupt Fifa ed which does things for the love of football and people, or is this just wishful thinking?

{Ed001's Note - wishful thinking sadly, there is too much money involved for it to ever be anything other than corrupt.}

4.) 17 May 2018 10:49:02
'Anything UEFA and FIFA touch is a mess'

Yeah exactly, they're bloody poison.



18 Mar 2018 11:19:38
Watching Mane yesterday he does seem to be playing the "coutinho " role now which is something MK alluded to a couple of weeks back. Dropping deep and letting the full back have the width. So with Salah playing the mane role of last season, we've probably improved both positions.

1.) 18 Mar 2018 12:08:57
I agree Mané looked good and lively yesterday.

2.) 18 Mar 2018 13:49:29
I'm not sure I want Mane to be playing that role on a permanent basis. It'll work only if the fullback who is taking up his place, hasn't left a gaping hole on our defensive left side, and is being covered by another midfielder or Van Dijk. It's working okay thus far, considering we were not able to replace Coutinho last January. But I'd much rather have Mane on the receiving end of passes near or in the penalty box, rather than making them.

3.) 18 Mar 2018 14:17:39
Mane provided my favourite moment of the match with his layup to Salah for his 3rd goal. Despite being in a better shooting position he passed in order to give Salah the chance to score his first hatrick for the club.

That should settle the "Mane's sulking because he's jealous of Salah debate".

4.) 18 Mar 2018 21:09:08
Ra1969, there is nothing wrong with Mane expanding the role in the team. Obviously, Klopp has giving him more responsibility cos he trusts that Mane can do the job even if it is temporary. This is the strength of our front 3 cos either of them can drop into the no. 10 roale and do the job there. Mane was at the origin of the first 3 goals.

The pass he put in for Robbo for the second goal, was sublime. Had a no. 10 like Cou, KDB, Silva or even Bobbie done that, we would be hailing the pass as world class and great vision. What is wrong with Mane being able to do that? To me, I think it's great that he can do that cos that will make our front 3 even more deadly and make them more unpredictable and versatile.



03 Mar 2018 11:07:04
Ed 1, what did you make of Keegan as a manager. I don't think he gets the credit he deserves for taking Newcastle as far as he did. I remember them coming to anfield with his promoted team and beating us easily. Andy Cole got a couple and Beardsley was mom.

{Ed001's Note - he wasn't a manager, he was a cheerleader. He would just let them do what they wanted.}

1.) 03 Mar 2018 11:17:35
Do you think him or maybe Toshack would have been better for us than Souness though.

{Ed001's Note - Toshack yes, but no chance Keegan. Would have been a shambles at the end just the same, as was left when Keegan walked out as he always does.}

2.) 03 Mar 2018 11:30:22
Nice description Ed ‘cheerleader not a manager’. I couldn’t help but like the guy, and his teams had many an exciting game, but as you say not for us. Seems like a decent guy too.

{Ed001's Note - very money oriented but yes, nice guy but we did not need a nice guy then.}

3.) 03 Mar 2018 11:40:55
Toshack was a very good manager in my opinion. He is a huge part of why Xabi Alonso was as good as he was. Making him Real Sociedad captain at 20 years old was a huge call that did wonders for his confidence and development. Finishing 2nd in La Liga with Sociedad is a minor miracle.

{Ed001's Note - correct, he was a very good manager.}

4.) 03 Mar 2018 14:40:04
On the Toshack discussion I remember him taking the Wales job the first time around on a part time basis, and I'm sure we got whacked by, not sure now, could have been Norway by about 5 goals. He called it a day and got stick for it, even though he was running Sociedad at the time too.
In the qualifiers group of Europe 2004, and when Wales led the group, Toshack was the only pundit who said we shouldn't get carried away with being top and said we needed to work harder. Wales missed out on qualification that year again. Some players came out to slag him off, the obvious one being Robbie Savage, saying that he would never play for Wales if Toshack became boss. Love and behold, Toshack became boss and savage began his creeping, and later, sniping of Toshack. Tosh seemed to be a manager who didn't give much notice if you were a top player, as long as you were a team player. He oversaw the changes in Welsh football, out with the old and blooded the youngsters, playing Bale as a left attacking midfielder / winGer before he played there for spurs, putting the foundations in place for Gary Speed and later Chris Coleman to build on. Having Roy Evans alongside him helped a lot too. You don't take a club like Swansea from 4th division to top of the 1st, and manage Real Madrid twice without being a decent manamer.

5.) 03 Mar 2018 15:34:32
Kevin I will love it if we beat them Keegan. Hilarious. Could and should have won the premier league to be fair.

6.) 03 Mar 2018 15:37:14
Souness deserves at least some credit for Fowler, mcmanaman and redknapp. He gave them their chance eh.

7.) 03 Mar 2018 17:12:29
I can’t belive the amount of abuse Keegan takes on this page. What exactly did he do so wrong that people compelty ignore his excellent track record at the club! He ran down his contract and left the club! Anything else that we are missing. The Kop sometimes baffles me! They only appreciate players they like and ignore all others!

8.) 04 Mar 2018 11:07:54
How and where has anyone run down Keegan? People had a go at his management, things he said and actual did but not him as a player or person. Just because he was a great player for us does not mean his downsides can't be discussed.

I see it as more Gomez replacing Trent at full back who's better defensively. Plus the added height of Matip is a reason too.

Good review ed, but surprisingly no mention of the referee. I think he got every single decision wrong.

{Ed001's Note - not worth mentioning him, he is a Mancunian and should not be refereeing games involving any of the Liverpool or Manchester sides. The pressure on him is immense, it is not right or fair to put him in that position.}

22-0 . Did they score that many all last season.
