Morning eds. I know we can't sign everyone but I've seen we've been linked with or suggested that Draxler would be a good fit to replace Couts, but how about Lucas Moura, if rumours are true he's available. He seems s good player with a lot of pace that suits liverpools style of play, any interest at all and do you feel he could work in our team?
Thanks for all the work you guys do.

I want Lemar because that is who Klopp clearly wants. I also think he is a quality player with big potential.

2.) 05 Jan 2018 13:09:31
Lucas moura is the Brazilian Theo Walcott. Direct, pacey but inconsistent and with more hype than end product. Not worth it IMO.

3.) 05 Jan 2018 14:32:52
I think he didn't settle in Europe. Still think he's a better player than the one we've seen at psg. Though maybe not the player many people see in FIFA.

Looks like Allison will be a great addition, like with VVD I don't see why fans get concerned with the price being paid. If that's who klopp wants and that's how much he costs to bring him to Anfield so be it. If he makes the difference and we win a trophy or more importantly the league then I don't think you could put a price on him. For every player we buy there will always be a Carroll, Aquilani etc (players way more expensive than their worth) but there will always be a Torres, Suarez, Alonso, Salah Coutinho. Not every player will work out but let's hope these new guys do no matter what they cost.

Feel sorry for Karius as I still think he deserves a chance.
Does Alisson improve us? Yes most likely.
There aren’t many top keepers around so we’re clearly taking the opportunity to get one whilst available- I wonder if Chelsea supposedly sniffing around ( assuming TC goes) has put the impetus to get this deal done quickly.

2.) 18 Jul 2018 16:16:44
I think fans get concerned because most of us still remember the time when our club almost stopped existing because of money.



13 Jun 2018 10:27:26
Away from transfers is there any news on when we are going to increase the other stand to make the 61,000 capacity. Would be great for the extra match day revenue and for the atmosphere.

Ibiza Red

1.) 13 Jun 2018 11:13:01
FSG have said that it isn’t financially viable and had a backhanded dig at fans with regards to the ticket price row/ walkout so I’m not sure if it will get done, it’s a lot of work for not a huge increase in capacity.

2.) 13 Jun 2018 11:17:11
pretty sure the max would be 60,000 or improve the infrastructure around the ground.



29 May 2018 23:04:49
Hi Ed's. I know you've discussed a few of the possible exits and the problems of getting rid of players such as Sturridge due to high wages and no doubt holding out for a crazy fee. Is there anything on Markovic and does he have long left on his contract. Then Grujic is there anything on him as from what I've heard Cardiff City weren't particularly impressed. Finally what is likely to happen to Origi ( and what is your opinion on him) I like Ings his character and his determination, not sure if it's not getting a run of game or that he's just not suited to our style. But I feel at times this season Origi is the one player that we could've brought off the bench to make a difference, I'm not saying he's brilliant but he's quick half decent in the air. But what I like about him most of all is he seemed to have self belief when he played for us and would happily try a shot from outside the box or be more direct something that sometimes we can lack (especially since the departure of Coutinho )
Thanks in advance.

Ibiza Red

{Ed001's Note - it is the same old story with all of the players, but there is a while after the ins window shuts to worry about outs, so I am sure we will drop the asking prices a bit then. I would prefer us to keep Origi, for me he is the best of our back up forwards and just needs a run of games. He would have made it much easier to rest Firmino etc during the run in. Though he has not been at his best out on loan.}

1.) 30 May 2018 05:04:19
Thanks Ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

2.) 30 May 2018 06:08:53
I think Danny Ings should be kept out of our reserve forwards ed. He’s got the bit between his teeth and seems hungrier than the others to want to succeed.
Be interested to see what he can produce with s run of games?

3.) 30 May 2018 06:31:07
Would be most pleased if Origi stayed as back up and plan b to Firmino. Will allow Solanke a loan where he can get proper game time and develop. I hope Klopp wants to keep Origi, hope he wants to stay.

4.) 30 May 2018 07:22:41
Totally agree on Origi. Once he settled he never let anyone down and scored a decent amount of goals considering he rarely started. Was disappointed last season to see him dropped for Sturridge after scoring in 5 games in a row.

Hopefully he will realise that back up striker at Liverpool isn’t the worst thing compared to his experience elsewhere. He would still rack up plenty of minutes I’m sure. Just disappointed we indulged Sturridge
For another half a season.

5.) 30 May 2018 07:34:14
I saw a bit of Origi on loan. While he didn't exactly impress while on loan, his team were quite poor throughout really.
I think we should sell Ings and Solanke should go on loan. Origi showed he can be a reasonable backup to Firmino 2 seasons ago. I think he has matured more now.

6.) 30 May 2018 13:14:02
I'd agree with keeping Origi. How often do we see players lift their games up in correlation with the team mates around them? I still see Origi as far beter skilled than Ings or Solanke. Ings should have been the one sent out on loan and not Origi. Both would have benefitted far more.



27 May 2018 04:58:14
Such an infuriating game as it's for ever going to sit in the back of my head 'what if'. What if Salah wasn't injured as we were fantastic. In the first 25 with high pressing and playing with such confidence. What if Karius hadn't thrown that ball, what if Karius had saved Bales second shot, even when we weren't really in the game at 2-1 down there's always a chance. What if Ox hadn't been injured as for me Lallana wasn't the man to introduce with so little game time und r his belt this season would've liked to have seen solanke come on myself, we lost our shape and sat deeper once lallana was on the pitch.
But let's give our boys credit and all of them they did fantastically well to reach the final and get top 4 this season playing some great entertaining football and with such a small squad due to so many injuries.
I really hope this moment doesn't go on to ruin Karius career as a keeper even if it will probably be what he will be remembered for. No matter what his mistakes cost us I hope he doesn't get the treatment Lovren got from the Spurs game in October (who might I add I thought played very well tonight) no player ever deserves such treatment no matter how poor their performance and I'm sure he will be punishing himself enough, and I hope he has the mental strength to get through this.
Now hopefully we have a great summer shopping for the players we need and also selling the players we don't need and we turn this current crop of players into a squad that will be fighting on all fronts.

Evening Ed's. Maybe not strictly LFC related but do you see any big transfers between premiership clubs this summer? There seems to be less rumours floating around. The last few summers there's been players like Walker, VVD, Lukaku, Vardy (to arsenal never happened) . I'm presuming Rose to Man U is still possible. So is there anyone Liverpool could be looking at. Or for example if Chelsea, Spurs or even us were to miss out on CL football next season could any expect any high profile departures. I would love us to snatch William from Chelsea and Alderwielder from Spurs.
On another note we'll done to Brighton. Unfortunately I think Huddersfield won't be able to follow them in staying up.

Ibiza Red

{Ed002's Note - There is certainly interest in PL players from PL clubs so something may well happen.}

1.) 05 May 2018 00:31:13
Most likely would Alderweireld, Rose maybe an Ozil or Can to be a bit leftfield.

2.) 05 May 2018 02:14:19
Wenger to Everton.

3.) 05 May 2018 03:22:59
I posted the other night my dream 4 summer ins would be

Naby keita
Toby Alderweireld
Leon bailey
Wilfred zaha (cash plus ings) maybe not a popular choice but he would suit the way we play way more than ings ever will. And i like ings but its just how i see it personally.

Both bailey and zaha would allow some much needed rotation up top and allow us to challenge on all fronts. Alderweireld and van dijk together would be a brick wall at the back.

The kid bailey looks like he's going to be something special if he makes the right move. And the way he plays suits our attack. In a few years he could be a ready made replacement for salah if he gets tempted to leave. I would pay the 70 million and put any spare change all on black a few turns to get the money for the other two scripmed up.

Zaha although still rough around the edges i think would run riot in our side if klopp got in his ear. He may be a little wasteful but so is mane on many occasions and he still thrives in our attack.

We need two signings up top that when rotate don't comprimise our attacking threat and the trait of unpredictability that we have going foward. One or two bad injuries up and our potency severly diminishes. Our front three are injuries waiting to happen at the moment. Even 1 quality signing that could cover either flank would greatly improve things.
Football is very much a squad game in todays world and after the season we have had it would be a shame if we don't add some serious quality to our squad to bulid on the momentum.
Lots of factors come into play in signings. Im aware of that but we are seriously thin up top in terms of title winning quality more than anywhere else.

4.) 05 May 2018 07:38:29
Snatch Willian from Chelsea? Where would he play? he doesn’t play every game for Chelsea so would have no chance getting in our front 3. He seems to have won the media over but not the Chelsea fans or managers which says a lot. I think he’s a decent player and stood out the season when Mourinho got sacked and they did awful but I’m not sold that he’s this top player the media think he is, he doesn’t score enough or get enough assists either which for his position isn’t great.

5.) 05 May 2018 08:14:10
In response to Willian, he’s been one of Chelsea better performers this season but doesn’t look happy if they miss out on CL football and with a new manager most likely coming in they may have a few players available. I look at Willian as a player that won’t cost excess of £50 mill which is becoming an average price tag at the moment. He could cover either flank for Salah or Mane or either side of midfield. We clearly need more strength in depth we’ve had a great season but the midfield needs more quality Can looks on his way out, Milner has been superb but for how much longer and to be honest only since Xmas has he been performing. Lallana can’t stay fit. And we can’t expect mane, salah, firmino to play 60plus games a season. Unfortunately it’s not quite happened for Ings, I know he’s young but I’m been very underwhelmed by Solankes brief appearances and who knows if Origi will return.

6.) 05 May 2018 09:16:31
Willian would be a massive upgrade on ings and solanke i terms of cover up top.

7.) 05 May 2018 09:24:53
The way some fans talk Mane and Salah only score and are successful this season because of Firmino, so does it matter who we bring in as a reserve forward. We could bring in fat Nige from the dog and duck and he would hit double figures next season because of him.

8.) 05 May 2018 10:06:39
Alderweireld seems likely to be off but United are interested and the brutal truth is they can offer him a bigger salary than us - it would be a good signing but seems very unlikely to me. Leon Bailey has had an excellent season and is highly regarded - I doubt he will move to us to be a rotation option. Zaha is over rated in my opinion and I think we should be aiming for a higher calibre of player.

9.) 05 May 2018 11:11:02

With the amount of games we will have next year i don't just see new signings as cover so to speak. Front 3 can't play them all and injuries are bound to happen. Bailey would be my top target because he could play just as many games as the other 3 and not comprimise our threat going foward. In that regard i don't think in his mind he would see it as coming to be cover if it was sold right to him. But he might have absolutely no interest in us whatsoever but like i stated he would be a dream signing for me.
What attacking player wouldn't want to come play for liverpool at the moment though.
I think zaha could vastly improve in our side. We are set up to suit all his strengths and he would have far more chances in our side. If we could get him for a somewhat cheap price compared to other attacking players i think its a no brainer cause in my opinion i think he would improve our squad in terms of what we have currently.
They way im thinking if we spend on a cb and an attacking player like bailey. Zaha might be one of few options left for the money we would have in the kitty. Plus we could possibly get him cheaper if palace were to be interested in the likes of migs or ings. Like i said before they way im thinking although zaha is not world class quality, after salah mane and bobby he would be better than what we currently have and i think his unpredictable style (even if its because he may not know what he's doing himself at times) would suit the way we play.

10.) 05 May 2018 12:24:03
Highly unlikely, Jayden. Fat Nige is off to Everton.

11.) 05 May 2018 20:14:05
Fair points Wolverine. I agree that Bailey is an exceptional talent - I just don't envisage him signing or ourselves making the move, it would cost a lot (in both wages and transfer fee + the usual add on's) and there would then be tension within the squad. Who plays, Bailey or Mane? Salah or Bailey? etc etc - I just think, for the likely price, we will not make a move in a position that is fairly low priority.

I think Zaha's cost, in comparison to his role, wouldd probably rule him out. Palace will ask for a bumper fee off of anyone sniffing around and I just don't think we'll spend the money it would take.

I would like us to sign a CB too but of course this is contingent on the right one being found, for the right place, etc etc. I really do not see us signing any wide attacking players, there are simply too many other areas of greater importance to focus on:

Ed's have already hinted at it but I would say at least another midfielder on top of Keita (Ceballos the one in favour - personally I'd prefer 2 more midfield additions on top of Keita but seems unlikely) .
A right back - god knows who though my football knowledge is awful, I remember one of the Ed's saying we have a look at Leipzig's right back but don't know who that is.
And likely a back up keeper (Navas the favored choice) .
If we offload Ings and Origi and Sturridge in summer perhaps another forward as a squad.
I don't think a wide attacking player is something the club will be particularly focused on this summer.

12.) 05 May 2018 22:19:35
You could most certainly be correct seano.
And there was me looking to sign two wide players!
Im of the opinion that after cb signing which is probably of most importance i would like to see at least 1 wide/ central player up top to come in. Preferably wide for me. As salah or mane could play central when bobby needs a rest. Bailey just has my eye bigtime. I read this morning city were after him. And they have jesus aguero sterling bernado silva and sane up top. Even with just 1 of our front 3 missing up front we don't look the same threat. I really think we need at least 1 quality signing in that department.
If we win the champions league it would be a real statement of intent to sign 3 quality signings on top of keita if if its the right player on a free.
Surely there must be at least a 150 million kitty this year plus cash from any sales.

We probably do need to free up some space in the wage budget.

Competition for places is like a new player in itself. It can only have positive outcomes in my opinion.

I haven't seen anything at all of ceballos. If or when can leaves we do start to look pretty thin in midfield also.

I think taa and gomes have rb sorted between them. Taa could even possibly cover in midfield nect year too. Back up left back is more important than right back at the present time. Id rather see any big spend going to a starting cb rather than a starting rb.

We are heading into a very important summer in terms of recruitment. There are some pretty good prospects in our ranks. But it may well be a season or two too early for some of them.
Harry wilson could be an interesting player to watch in pre season. Havent seen 1 second of anything he's done at hull but the reports seem to be good. By all accounts he seems hungry to make something happen for himself in his career so if he does come into the squad next year we may have a very determined player ready to prove a point.
Woodburn i would like to see given some 20 to 30 minute spells at the end of some games in the midfield 3. Could save us a fortune in the long run. Looks tidy from what i've seen of his games. Bit of a teachers pet look about him too. Being around henderson and milner can only be good for the kid.
On an end note it was awesome to see bobby put his name on the guest list for all future gigs in the foreseeable future. At least that's one load off the mind.

I actually heard about Klopp being a possibility to Madrid back in February I think it was and this came from an old German footballer who is trapps agent (keeper at PSG)
But a lot has changed since then and few were in a good place to keep Klopp I would Madrid will try Wenger short term 1-2 years then look to promote Guti or go for Pochetino.

It’s a very sad state of affairs with many fans spending more money than they can probably afford to follow the club they love for the game they love and the country and city that’s Uefa have nominated to be the host of the final can’t even cope with the travelling supporters. It’s pathetic really given that they would’ve known the date and the situation how many months in advance. I believe Real Madrid gave back 2000 allocated tickets as the fans didn’t want the cost and hassle of travelling to Ukraine.
UEFA need a reality check and start looking after the fans that generate so much money for the game.

Brover- you wouldn’t take either Vertonghan or Alderwielder? They are 2 of the best centre backs in the league. A fit Danny rose isn't a bad player and how about Erikson I would happily have him in our team feeding firmino salah and Mane.

Whether he’s great, good or average player, what he has been is a constantly good performer this season probably only behind Salah, Firmino and also Milner (who I would also say is no longer a great player but steady and reliable) but Milner along with Robertson is playing above my estimations. The in thing that has been noticeable is he was sorely missed when rested against West Brom and Stoke, he is much better than any other option we have for that position and has proved to be a cheap buy. But out there now who are the great left backs in world football, the problem is now being a full back seems to have very little to do with if you can defend or not.

He wouldn't get near their team and if he did I'd happily have him play against us. On his day he can be tremendous but he switches off to often in the game and yesterday he was our poorest player and looked dead on his feet.

I watch quite a few la liga games on bein sports and there’s a terrible Geordie on there but it gets quite comical. For me ITV is the worst coverage of football ever. Especially this World Cup I appreciate they were working for a British audience but Dixon and Wright were so biased without any neutral and intelligent comments about any of the games. And for the player he was I find Glenn Hoddle very hard to listen to in commentary. Hate to admit it but Gary Neville is about the best pundit out there.

As regards to the ballon D’or surely the winner of the World Cup will play massively into this. If Spain win the World Cup then Iniesta would be a massive shout as along with a domestic double their may be a slightly nostalgic vote for him. Likewise Ramos could be an option. Obviously you have Ronaldo if Portugal win or he wins golden boot. Looks unlikely Argentina do much but if they do you have Messi. How about Croatia doing well then Modric who was arguably Madrid’s best player last year. France then you could argue Greizmann after his goals in the Europa League. England and Kane if he wind golden boot. Brazil and Neymar ( even though he’s been shocking in fist 2 games)
Personally would love to see Iniesta win it. He should’ve had it back in 2010 not Messi.

He’s not long signed for Barcelona and even though they are being heavily linked with a centre back from Sevilla I don’t see them selling as Pique will be gone soon enough anyway.
