Latest keeper to be linked is keylor navas off real madrid. I have only seen him in a couple of champions league games and being honest wasn't paying him too much attention. Would he be a good addition if we are interested of course?


1.) 31 Oct 2017 18:40:52
Wud b completely the wrong keeper worse than bravo he not even 6ft we need a aggressive dominating presence who likes to give rollockings when needs be.

2.) 31 Oct 2017 19:09:25
Not to be petty hailstones but apparently Navas is 6’1” so you clearly don’t know what you are talking about.

3.) 31 Oct 2017 19:19:14
Haha ok I am wrong apologies but him coming from Spanish league to premiership and too us who teams target for set peices would cause him an us big probs.

4.) 31 Oct 2017 19:25:49
Like De gea 🤷🏻‍♂️.

5.) 31 Oct 2017 20:00:08
How long did it take for him to settle also he has better attributes taller better all round he is world class.

6.) 31 Oct 2017 20:16:23
Doesnt matter how tall the keeper is to be honest as long as they are agile.

7.) 31 Oct 2017 20:22:12
I guess that rules out Jan Oblak too then as he also plays in the Spanish league.

8.) 31 Oct 2017 21:45:54
Yeah, our last keeper from Spain who wasn’t tall was awful. Bloody Pepe Reina.

9.) 31 Oct 2017 22:41:54
I hate spanish keepers id much rather have rob green in goal for a world cup.

10.) 31 Oct 2017 23:38:02
Doesn't matter were they from as long as they have rite attributes aggressive commanding reading danger communicating with defence, decent kicking these are all things needed for a top keeper, navas is a good shot stopper and decent kicker.

11.) 01 Nov 2017 06:26:52
Or maybe Danny Ward could be given a chance before everyone starts playing football manager signings again.

12.) 01 Nov 2017 07:34:09
DetailsLocked - Exactly mate.

13.) 01 Nov 2017 08:45:14
AMEN too details locked i hope with regards too ward he gets sum sort of run in team so we can judge an see if he in fact could be everything we need there are a lot of British keepers at minute who are doing great e. g Rob Elliot, Tom heaton, jack butland, Jordan Pickford, Fraser Forster, so why not ward!

14.) 01 Nov 2017 15:09:48
Navas is a poor keeper at best, he’s only just over 6ft (1.85m is not 6’1”) and for me, he is too short to be successful in the premier league, given that we struggle on crosses and high balls into the box, the last thing you do is buy a keeper that is easily dominated in those situations and Navas is weak in that area, look at how Bravo has struggled and how poor Pickford is on crosses, we don’t need another keeper who can’t deal with that. If we are bringing a keeper in, bring a top class one like Oblak or don’t bother. We’ve done enough bargain basement shopping in that area for a lifetime.

15.) 01 Nov 2017 22:22:57
Defo agree see him tonight he would give us all a heart attack.

16.) 02 Nov 2017 06:34:51
JC23 that is true to some extent but not totally. Watch someone like James Shea. Very agile keeper but probably about 5'11 tops and he struggles with crosses because of lack of reach and size. League 1 and 2 players are generally smaller these days than the big prem players so he would struggle at prem level. If he was 6'3 or more I reckon Arsenal would have kept hold of him. height does unfortunately make a difference. A tallish keeper 6'2 who is agile can compete but below that they are struggling in a league where the first thing the clubs look for is size and they like to bang in crosses all the time. Plus for Liverpool size in GK is now a must since teams are targetting crosses into the box as a weakness.

17.) 03 Nov 2017 00:20:58
I agree with that DetailsLocked. Any keeper under 6’1” is going to struggle unless they have the physique and ability to make up for it. Someone mentioned Pepe Reina, he’s 6’2” which is the minimum for me. Since he was tall enough to compete, also helped that he was quite a physically strong player to go with it and made good decisions almost ever time.

18.) 03 Nov 2017 08:22:47
Migs 6'4"
Karius 6'2"
Ward 6'4"
Wards height Changes depending on site.



12 Oct 2017 18:29:36
Is thomas lemar still seen as an option or was he ever truly an option? Reason I'm asking is if we are going for the likes of a lemar it would surely put to bed a new striker coming in as I doubt we would spend however much on lemar and a striker to leave one sitting on the bench. Lemar would be seen as a replacement for coutinho I would imagine. Gk and CBS are priorities. I know klopp has said Marius is his no1 and now mignolet is no1 but surely he can't be that naive to think either is good enough. Mignolet was at his level at Sunderland and karius while I admit didn't get a proper crack of the whip still doesn't fill me with confidence. Least I say about the cbs the better. Think Gomez should be giving a go. Surely he can't do worse than what's already going on at the back. Anyway enough moaning I'm going 2-0 Liverpool on Saturday . let's put mourinho back in his box.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool were one of many clubs that showed various levels of interest in Lemar but he was not going to be joining Liverpool this past summer. Next summer Liverpool May elect to considering him as a replacement for Coutinho.}

1.) 12 Oct 2017 21:29:31
Cheers ed002. Appreciate the reply.

2.) 13 Oct 2017 12:52:16
Ed002 now that your about would I be right in thinking that Couthino unless he has a massive change of heart he'll be off in the summer?

{Ed002's Note - he still wants out I understands. Liverpool can block a move.}

3.) 13 Oct 2017 15:52:57
Thanks for the reply Ed. It's gone on a bit now just get a much for him as we can and move him on I say.

{Ed002's Note - I think thoughts will turn to him leaving next summer.}

4.) 13 Oct 2017 17:49:57
My feelings exactly Ed thank's a million.

5.) 14 Oct 2017 15:58:25
Lemars preference for arsenal is due to their consistent appearance in the CL, he would prefer Liverpool if we can stay in the CL and retain a place. No move will be made unless Coutinho goes, that's unlikely until the summer even though we were told it's now or never, Barcelona are quickly realising their position of power is fading, dembele out long term, they have to show massive support politically to the Catalonian cause, a lot of Spanish players aren't quite fancying them anymore. Interesting times ahead for Barcelona, not particularly positive either.

6.) 15 Oct 2017 08:52:21
Jbleftpeg not entirely sure what anyone could disagree with there. Arsenal had 20 years of ECL so better bet still than us.

7.) 19 Oct 2017 00:33:49
I heard Lemar was open for a move to LFC, but they never bid anything close to what Monaco wanted.

Great win today. I know the attacking boys will get all the headlines and rightly so but special mention for moreno. Thought he was excellent again today. Offering great width and energy down the left. Don't wanna jinx things but keep this up Alberto and there is no need for a new lb.


1.) 18 Nov 2017 18:16:58
Moreno is really playing well.



01 Nov 2017 17:41:12
Would love to see woodburn be giving a start with ox also starting. Good match especially at anfield to bring them in. Would also like to see Gomez centre back tonight and TAA right back. Looking forward to tonights game. Hopefully another big win coming lads. Ynwa.


1.) 01 Nov 2017 18:06:53
Woodburn was on u19 duty today so that won't be happening.

2.) 01 Nov 2017 18:27:53
Yarmouth. Only in from work and seen it. Shame would of loved to see him play 2nite.

3.) 01 Nov 2017 18:35:27
I think tonights match would have been perfect for Woodburn to get a game. I would not be one for wholesale changes but Klopp could certainly play 1 of the squad players, maybe Grujic? I hope so, then if we happen to go up 3 or 4 maybe some time to a few others.

4.) 01 Nov 2017 19:31:56
same goes for Harry Wilson could of had a place on the bench he knocks the goals in left right and centre for the u23s.

5.) 01 Nov 2017 20:28:13
Can someone tell me why Klopp is playing Can, Henderson and Milner in midfield tonight. Why congest the midfield when the opposition is expecting to sit deep.

6.) 01 Nov 2017 20:42:12
I agree with you about the midfield my question is why aren't we playing with an out an out striker against these our midfield just don't score.

7.) 01 Nov 2017 22:58:14
Although I’d love to see them given the chance we needed the win to progress from the group. I’d much rather see them given the chance in the cups and in the prem against the lesser teams like Everton for example.

8.) 02 Nov 2017 03:09:26
because wijnaldum got injured. he usually plays a little more advanced but when Jordan came on it was Can who was getting forward, infact it changed between milner and Can and that didn't work out too badly did it? . The truth is we were drawing this game and after the half time team talk we came out and scored 3 in the ucl. Klopp did well. Not only did Can score in a more advanced role but Danny S came on and scored. excellent from the manager.



25 Oct 2017 17:44:21
Hi ed001. What's your opinion on Luke shaw mate? Seemed to be really promising player before the injury. It looks like mourinho doesn't rate him but seems like a klopp player bombing down the wings. Doubt united would ever sell to us anyway.


{Ed001's Note - has not adjusted well to going to a big club and is not putting in the work on the training ground. He put on a lot of weight and is not as fit as he should be. Avoid like the plague.}

1.) 25 Oct 2017 18:01:52
He is a free agent in the summer if united doesn't offer him a new contract along Herrera, Mata, Fellaini and Blind.

2.) 25 Oct 2017 20:34:07
They'd be daft to offer him a new contract, bugger that I wouldn't have him anywhere near our team. Remember all the hype about him joining UTD as well. In my opinion he just got lazy his head isn't in it at all.

3.) 25 Oct 2017 21:10:20
Problem is he came in, had a decent first 15 games as a teenager and then it all went to his head when he signed for a massive club for £30m. In 12 months he went from Saints U18's to being a millionaire in United's first team. It was an abhorrent and totally unjustified rise. He was decent for his age, but not spectacular. I said way back at the time he was on the same level as Brad Smith, but with more hype. Turns out i was wrong. Brad Smith is better, because at least he applies himself and is first choice for Australia, even if he isn't quite a Premier League player. He is a footballer which is more than Luke Shaw can say right now.

I never understood what people saw in Shaw that made him so different to other young left backs. He wasn't even the best left back in the Saints academy. That accolade belonged to Matty Targett who also hasn't quite made the grade. This is why you have to carefully manage most kids. For every Kane or Rashford who will fight to make it regardless, there is a Shaw or a Wilshere who just cannot be bothered once they get a big contract and are told they are the future of England! Sad, but that's the reality.

4.) 25 Oct 2017 22:14:41
You’re talking absolute nonsense again MK.

5.) 26 Oct 2017 00:37:48
Tezza-M - if he's talking nonsense then correct him? what did he say what is wrong?

6.) 26 Oct 2017 05:43:11
Well he said Brad Smith is a better player than Luke Shaw and, whilst Brad Smith may work harder, he is simply not. He also says Matty Targett was a bigger prospect - again this is simply not true. Adam is an interesting poster and always sparks lively debate, and I do enjoy reading his comments, but he has a tendency to grossly overexaggerate anything to make his point and this post above demonstrates this.

I do agree with the first part of the post though - Shaw moved too early, got too comfortable, has not got complacent and looks to be on a real downward trajectory. He will have to change his mindsent soon otherwise he will be yet another youngster who has squandered their huge potential. I genuinely believe, if he had the work ethic, that he would be absolutely top class.



25 Oct 2017 17:40:39
Is PSG still interested in coutinho? If so surely they would need to move on a few bodies to get him in for ffp (if it even exists) . Got me thinking who off there team we could get to improve our team. Draxler being one cavani and rabiot being others. Think rabiot would be excellent and what klopps plans are for next season playing with a striker or keeping firmino up top draxler could also be a great signing (still upset we missed out on him last season) . Before anyone starts my choice would be to keep coutinho but he will be gone summer at the latest. We need to start planning now. If I was klopp oblak
(agent) would be getting a call.


1.) 25 Oct 2017 18:03:26
We can't afford the wages of the likes of Cavani and Raboit i doubt they would ever consider selling. If Coutinho moves to PSG i think it will be straight cash.



22 Oct 2017 20:57:05
Would like to ask eds and everyone's opinions on Jordan Henderson being captain. Do people think he is a captain or is it too much of a burden for him. I am a hendo fan but unfortunately don't feel he has it in him to lead a team. Think he is great to have around and hopefully can get back to were he was but think captaincy is too much for him. We are lacking serious leaders in our team. I would of loved someone to have a go at mignolet for coming for the cross that lead to the 4th goal or lovern for the pathetic performance today back injury or not.


1.) 22 Oct 2017 21:17:39
we have bigger problems than Henderson, don't understand how he can get stick today when all the goals were very easily avoidable and had nothing to do with the midfield and specially Henderson, 1st goal, bad mistake from Lovren and Mignolet. 2nd goal horrible mistake from Lovren. 3rd goal horrible mistake from Matip. 4th goal, rookie mistake from Mignolet. And the 2nd and 3rd could have been saved by a better keeper.

2.) 22 Oct 2017 21:24:19
Jordan henderson is a fine player on his day but he hanst had one of those days all season. Captaincy doesn't come into it, he is being left out to dry by the manager. He was coping well at cdm before the injury but not now. So why has he not been taken out of the firing line. We knew we needed a solid defensive mid in the knowledge that he was coming back from a bad injury and was never meant to play the position to start with. Their are plenty out there. Ndidi, obiang would be cheap options but im sure there are better out there. Why would we sell lucas and stewart and bring in nobody. The management of this squad is nearing rodgers levels of ignorance. The whole of the midfield and defence needs a reshuffle if we are to survive.

3.) 22 Oct 2017 21:41:21
So another transition then Woolback! Close to £200 mill and spend only to realize we need to spend another £300 mill to get this right lol!

4.) 22 Oct 2017 22:04:16
Truthfullly he’s the worst captain I’ve seen at Liverpool for decades. He’s not a motivator nor is he a match winner offensively or defensively.
If I had to pick one in the current squad, probably firmino.
He’s a fighter.

{Ed025's Note - frying pans and fire is all i can say 1234. bobby is not even worth his place at the moment and i know hes not a natural CF but he needs to score more mate..

5.) 22 Oct 2017 23:59:27
Bobby got a brace five days ago.

6.) 23 Oct 2017 00:01:01
Firmino as captain? Good god he may not be great, Henderson, but you want a guy who disappears for half a season every season as captain, abs no way, an average player who turns up when he's botheted.

7.) 23 Oct 2017 15:58:47
At least he turns up. Unlike Henderson.

8.) 23 Oct 2017 20:43:13
He's average as a player when you compared him to alli eriksen de bruyne pogba fabregas kante fernandino etc. Squad player at best and captain, not at all but who is in this squad. I miss skrtel.

9.) 23 Oct 2017 20:43:55
I've soapboxed a few times about lack of leadership in the dressing room. We need a stronger captain, imo, but Hendo's the best at the club at the moment.

If we took the armband form him, who would we give it to? Migs and most of our defenders are completely out of the question. Milner doesn't play regularly, Wijnaldum's not captain material and Coutinho and Can are both probably on their way out. I think it's too soon for Gomez.

Mane? Firmino? Probably the best alternatives and they're both good players and top blokes, but so is Henderson. They mightn't do any better and you've disturbed the dressing room for nothing.

Donnyred92. Would love that too but unfortunately won't happen. Woodburn would have a couple of bad games which is expected at his age and everyone would be on his case every opportunity . A player of coutinho quality needs to be replaced with quality and I'm not saying like for like. We all know the problems in the team and I don't know about everyone else but if I was offered the chance of selling coutinho for x amount and sign oblak and vvd for similar amount of money I think that would overall make us a better team even losing a world class player like coutinho.

I don't think he will be sold in Jan. There might be a deal struck in Jan for the summer but it makes absolutely no sense to sell in Jan. We are in the last 16 in the champions league against a team we should beat which takes us further into the competition. We still have top 4 or better and fa cup too so need all our players sorry world class players to stay. Lemar for me out of the 3 you mentioned. I don't know why people keeping saying max Meyer. For me he isn't good enough and would be a bench warmer and taking up a seat on that bench who I'd prefer to give to woodburn. Brandt I'll admit I haven't seen much of but he wants reassurances about a starting spot (who does he think he is ronaldo) . Getting lemar in Jan would be excellent as we could rest coutinho mane salah in premier league games before or after the champions league without impacting the quality on the pitch.

Mks I'm not having a go pal as I enjoy reading your posts but why would bale, cavani, icardi Sanchez ect come to Liverpool especially if we sell world class players such as coutinho and salah in Jan or the summer. I don't think we would be appealing to any of those guys unfortunately until we stop selling our best players and start winning trophies. Listen I understand coutinho is as good as gone but there should be two world class players to replace him pal not just one. And I'm not saying like for like replacements. I posted awhile back if we sold coutinho for x amount and bought oblak (just and example and a daydream) and vvd I think that would overall improve the team but in my eyes we are still 5 players off from winning the league.

Indian buzzer nailed it in one. As long as the club are not challenging for major honours noone will stay long term. I know real Madrid are a huge draw for anyone but this is what really bugs me the posters and even fans of this club saying give karius or ward a chance in goal and I'm only using them as an example. Karius is not good enough and ward I don't care how good he was for Huddersfield last season will never make it as number 1 for a top 6 club in england. People need to seriously wake up to what's going on. De gea proves what a world class keeper does for you. He gets you points and carries the team when needed. Coutinho world class talent, firmino, salah, mane. Do yous honestly believe any of these will end there careers at Liverpool? I hope they do but they will all move on eventually like Alonso reina mascherano Torres Suarez to name a few cause the lure of winning trophies regularly appeals to them because they are winners. The lesser talents mignolet, loven, matips and so on will stay as they won't find a better club than Liverpool. All I keep hearing is transition. Its funny cause we all class Liverpool as a top club but I don't know any other top club that has gone through a nearly 30 year transition. Its getting embarrassing now. How many Chelsea, man united or man city players are leaving for the top 2 in Spain or Italy or Germany. The ones those clubs wanna sell is the answer and that's why they are were they are and we are were we are. And before people start we have spent millions since the start of the premier league so I don't wanna hear that money card nonsense. The difference is they spent well we haven't.

Ed002 asensio making way? Are Madrid crazy? Would want him in any salah deal (don't want salah to go anywhere by the way) . Think salah will stay anyway cause Madrid will more than likely nab hazard. (hopefully) . Is neymar interested in going to Madrid ed002?


{Ed002's Note - Asensio will not be moving to Liverpool - they have already held discussions with another club about him. The rest of this all belongs on the European pages.}
