Ive read that Lemar doesn't want to sign new contract at Monaco. Do you expect Klopp to push for him again in the summer, or have you seen/ heard anything to suggest otherwise?


{Ed001's Note - his 'people' (whatever that actually means) have been dropping hints that he wants to join Liverpool. Hints enough to make Arsenal drop their interest as they were also given hints he was not keen to join them. I really do not know what is happening from our end though, just that it is being made known his preferred option is Liverpool.}

1.) 08 Feb 2018 18:47:32
Good to see a player eager to join us.

2.) 08 Feb 2018 19:17:06
Ok mate cheers ed. The summer is a long way off I guess and much can change but I hope he joins us. I think Klopp will improve him.

3.) 08 Feb 2018 19:35:58
Its all down to klopp being a coach players want to play for. We are lucky to have him. I can guarantee lamar wouldn't have wanted to play for Brendan Rodgers.

4.) 08 Feb 2018 19:40:23
The Echo is reporting that Liverpool has withdrawn interest in Lemar and will be pursuing other targets.

5.) 08 Feb 2018 20:14:59
Ive just read it in the Echo also VDV. Pearce stating we have ended interest. What do you make of this ed mate please? Pearce could be wrong AGAIN lol. Disappointed if true. Who else is there that fits the bill? 🤔🤔.

{Ed002's Note - Van der Vaart is off the agenda.}

6.) 08 Feb 2018 20:35:35
Nice one Ed002, can always rely on you mate lol. Any serious suggestions?

{Ed002's Note - About what? I have explained the situation as I understand it over and over. Nothing has changed as far as I am aware. You feed of all of this hour-by-hour changing bullshit on social media and the "Echo" and then askl me - as them.}

7.) 08 Feb 2018 20:53:16
I hope the alternative is Fekir.

8.) 08 Feb 2018 21:08:24
The price seems to be a sticking point, he's a good player but nigh on £100 mil is crazy.

9.) 08 Feb 2018 21:09:34
With us out of the running for LEMAR, I believe the player were after is GELSON MARTINS, I know one of the EDDS says we’ll only sign him if SALAH is sold, but I don’t see that, MARTINS is a KLOPP type of player, can play across the front three or deeper and is a very tricky player to tie down, if we sign him I think he will turn out to be better than the show pony COUTINHO, he will definitely turn the draws into wins, he is a match winner, you can never have enough of them. but only my opinion. any views EDDS.

10.) 08 Feb 2018 21:09:35
Didn't Pearce say for months we'd moved on from VVD. I would like Lemar. Think under Klopp he'd really turn into a even better player than he is now. But after the last transfer window I won't be holding my breath. Think we will end up with someone less well known personally as I think the club will try to spread the cash to fill other spaces also needed.

We probably need a GK, RB (move gomez to CB), another CM aswell as Keita ( because can will go, milner may retire, lallana looks to be struggling fitness wise, Henderson needs to prove his fitness over a full season ) .

Quite a few spaces to fill for me, hence I can't see us going 90mil for Lemar and 45mil for Allison. Either way I'm sure we will improve.

11.) 08 Feb 2018 21:21:17
Im not on any social media Ed002. I don't feed off any bullshit! Only read the Echo. First time i've posted in weeks. Sorry for wasting your time. Will go back to reading only for a bit.

{Ed002's Note - you have posted multiple times today and yesterday.}

12.) 08 Feb 2018 21:31:58
IB, Fekir would be a good addition but he looks like he pays a little further forward mate to me?

13.) 08 Feb 2018 23:18:46
Kloppsreds17, Fekir is way more versatile than many give him credit for. Can play anywhere up front and as a 10 so basically he will not only be a starter but also provide cover should our current front 3 not be available. Fekir is creative, pacy, gets stuck in when the situation demands.
What's not to like?

14.) 09 Feb 2018 00:09:45
I wouldn’t believe the Echo - I’m there will be interest over the summer at the right price, it’s probably an echo (get it) from the Jan window where he wasn’t about to move unless for stupid money.

15.) 08 Feb 2018 20:20:48
Echo saying interest gone in him
What do you make of that Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - I make nothing of that, they will no doubt be running another story saying the opposite in a few days, then another one a few days after that with another change in tack and so on until he moves somewhere.}

16.) 09 Feb 2018 06:47:16
I asked the same thing Barry, got a slightly differant answer to you though mate for some reason. I guess we will find out in a few months of interest remains.

{Ed001's Note - are you trying to annoy us editors now? You got the same answer in different words.}

17.) 09 Feb 2018 09:59:37
No ed not at all. Just I seem to get on the wrong end of harsh answers mate at times. Not my intention to annoy you lot at all. Im on here and only on here daily, have no interest in social media crap what so ever and I love the info you and the other eds provide us. I just don't always understand the inconsistency with some replies.

Like I say I never set out to piss anyone off at all, sorry if I have.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the situation as I understand it over and over - you just don't get that thinks really don't change every dfew minutes. If you want to keep asking the same questions about what some oik from the "Echo" says then ask on their website and not here.}

18.) 09 Feb 2018 10:16:17
Gutted about Van der Vaart 😔.

19.) 09 Feb 2018 10:51:08
Think the alternative might be fekall Buzzer!

20.) 09 Feb 2018 11:47:10
Ed001 is quite right, read yesterday we will buy in summer and surprise today interest has ended. I think we should go for him.

21.) 09 Feb 2018 13:58:32
I think ed2 saw "VDV" and thought Kloppsreds17 was asking about Van Der Vaart. I think what he was actually saying was in reply to VDV - who is a member of the site and had posted previous to KR17.

And then things escalated from there?

22.) 09 Feb 2018 17:08:38
Yeah I got that robbboz lol.

23.) 09 Feb 2018 18:51:00
Robbboz your spot on, was replying to him. Argh well all done now, onwards we go mate.

24.) 09 Feb 2018 19:27:36
Was watching highlights on fullmatchesandshows yesterday and saw an article titled "can agrees move to juventus". It was dated nov 2017.didnt click on it! Point is, the news outlets are there to attract traffic not to break news.



20 Jan 2018 11:30:45
Cabellos still a possibility ed or has that ship sailed mate?


{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}



18 Jan 2018 11:50:02
Woodburn not going out on loan as Klopp wants to keep him following the sale of Coutinho to Barca.

Sounds like what we are all thinking is becoming reality. No more incomings.


1.) 18 Jan 2018 12:01:06
What exactly is wrong with no more incomings? I'd rather the club stand pat than spending over the odds in a panic buy. It is the January window after all.

2.) 18 Jan 2018 12:03:16
I'm with you there Yankee Red.

3.) 18 Jan 2018 12:30:13
Will you still be saying that if we don, t qualify for champions league?

4.) 18 Jan 2018 12:36:25
so Jaylfc1 if we don't buy anyone else in this window do you think we won't qualify for top 4?
bit strange as this same squad has taken us 3rd
have a bit more faith mate.

5.) 18 Jan 2018 12:37:12
The lad deserves a chance and hope he takes this oportunity to fight for a place look at taa and gomez took clyne to be injured for them to shine woodburn could be next and that way we can concentrate on areas we need to dramatically improve.

6.) 18 Jan 2018 12:39:35
Will we be saying that if we win the Champions League?

7.) 18 Jan 2018 12:46:10
If LFC don't qualify for the Champion's League, it won't be because they failed to bring in whomever. Bringing in a player, even a "top, top player" isn't a guarantee to get us there. And how many players that are available would actually slip right in and improve the starting XI? There are plenty of players I'd like to see in a Liverpool kit, but most aren't available in January. It's better to wait for the Summer than overextend on a stopgap.

8.) 18 Jan 2018 12:49:24
Over spending wouldn't bother me too much. The club has to obviously work within the FFP rules but spending big money on the likes of someone like Lemar wouldn't worry me.

Every transfer is a risk, but our recent ones in Mane, Salah and Ox seem to be paying off despite some feeling we overspent with them when they first joined.

End of the day Lemar is a highly regarded young french national that the likes of Barcelona were looking at if Coutinho deal didn't go through. He obviously has ability, the risk comes in when we think if he can cope with the premier league.

I am glad woodburn is getting a chance, he should be getting that as backup to mane and salah.

But in my opinion the club has had ample time to prepare for coutinho leaving and not getting a replacement or any midfielder with Henderson injury record is a huge risk.

Remember the meltdown after we drew to West Brom and Everton! One or two poor results the pressure will crank up.

9.) 18 Jan 2018 12:49:34
Hindsight is a wonderful thing Jaylfc1, problem is none of us have a crystal ball so your argument goes both ways! What if we finished 2nd without signing a Coutinho replacement in this window?

10.) 18 Jan 2018 12:50:50
We just got over the odds money for coutinho, if there's no more incomings and we don't qualify for the cl we'll look a right laughing stock, but we'll have money in the bank, yippee.

11.) 18 Jan 2018 13:03:22
You say one or two poor results will crank up the pressure so here's an idea - if we happen to get a couple of poor results, don't crank up the pressure. don't contribute to the media storm. Just take it on the chin knowing that we're a strong team and form will pass.

Also, Barcelona spent 130m on a player to replace Neymar. He was instantly injured and didn't play all that half of the season. Spending money does not guarantee a single thing, if Klopp is happy then let him get on with it.

12.) 18 Jan 2018 13:05:54
I agree with JordZ.

As a club, Liverpool have had more than enough time to identify Coutinho's replacement, if this is Lemar and we can't do a deal in Jan then fine. You can't force a club to sell after all, but if we then fail to get the said target in summer, i'd be disappointed.

Loosing a player of Coutinho's caliber would detriment any club on this planet, so let's not pretend we "don't need him for top four". I'm not saying without him we can't get it, but with him or his identified replacement, we'd surely have a better chance in all competitions.

But then maybe I'm just gagging for another signing ha.

13.) 18 Jan 2018 13:09:06
I think it’s much simpler than that - it’s a question if the right players are available or not. Klopp has made it clear he will spend if the right players are there, but won’t spend on players that won’t improve the team.

We can talk all we like about spending or not spending on Lemar but Ed has already told us Monaco don’t want to sell in Jan, and others might move but not want to move to Liverpool or break the wage structure (Sanchez) .

As for Woodburn, hope the guy gets game time if he stays, a few games where he gets 20-30mins could be really important but if he sits on the bench all year to watch Milner and others to still come on if we’re 2 or 3 up it’ll be a big shame.

14.) 18 Jan 2018 13:09:55
Jordz, I understand your point mate but what if the players Klopp wants just aren’t available. That might be Lemar, might not be.

Point being if clubs are refusing to sell or asking for crazy money in order to sell to us then there isn’t really much we can do but wait.

Unless we go out and sign second, third or fourth choices. (But that doesn’t seem to be Klopp’s way of doing things - ed02 will remind me that salah definitely wasn’t first choice) . But you get my drift, id rather we waited until the right player became available. I don’t think ‘replacing’ coutinho right now is 100% necessary.

15.) 18 Jan 2018 13:11:24
Considering much of the talk has been about midfield and ahead of there and the thing likely to determine top 4 or not is more likely to happen behind there I don’t see how no more transfers is going to change what happens.

16.) 18 Jan 2018 13:28:39
Lets see if peoples opinion changes if we fail to finish in top4 this season. Funny how people forget how we struggle to break teams down who sit back for 90minutes.

I guess we still have Milner to come in, unless of course he is already starting.

17.) 18 Jan 2018 13:41:34
It doesn't matter whether we get a big signing or not for next half. I believe our team is capable of top 4 finish. for once we should stop the panick buys. if Klopp wants to sign Trapp for instance. I believe in him. ya some of his decision is not good. but he is human not a god or someone with time stone that can go back and change the past! but so far his buys have had more success than Rodgers buys right? not the transfer committee buys Rodgers ones lik Borini and all. let's get behind the team like we did for Manchester city game and we can beat anyone on our day. even Barcelona munic and all. they have to play at Anfield right? in UCL. we just have to make home game a lot tougher. booking every time they get the ball such will definitely help our team.

18.) 18 Jan 2018 13:49:43
Weakening our front 4 mid season with loads still to play for was never a good idea.
Not bringing someone else in is an even worse idea.
They've known for quite some time that Coutinho has wanted out, plenty of time to organise something.
Salah, Firmino and Mane can't play every remaining game.
Sturridge could very well be on his way out leaving us with Ings and Solanke as back up, neither of which can be trusted to perform to the required standard.
Not to mention Coutinho was basically 2 players wrapped up in 1 as he was capable of playing in the front 3 or as an attacking midfielder without any difference in quality.
As mentioned earlier we are gambling with CL qualification here while the teams around us are strengthening.

19.) 18 Jan 2018 14:01:16
I don't see how Woodburn not going on loan has anything to do with us signing anyone. Especially since he hasn't played. Not that I teally think we will get anyone and don't mind if we dont. If someone good enough is there and available we'll get them but if not wait til the summer. Wooburn being kept. conclusion: we won't sign a keeper.

20.) 18 Jan 2018 14:02:10
Problem is you guys don't realize the impact selling coutinho will have in the long term, klopp likes to rotate, it's been ok so far because we've had the quality to do that, if we get into the CL quarters, guaranteed klopp will rest salah bobby or mane maybe even all of them in between games. What comes in? Ings lallana or woodburn.
That's where our top 4 chances will fade.
Arsenal are getting Mhki and Auba for Sanchez. Arsenal! The team in crisis right now. There not keeping one of there youngsters to help fill the void.
Liverpool have never been more attractive to players as they are right now, in the CL still, in the top 4, just smashed the best team in the league. Use it to get a quality player in.
Cuz team Harry Kane can easily finish above us.

21.) 18 Jan 2018 13:58:45
Ed01, would you still expect someone in before the end of the window, ?

{Ed001's Note - still? I said I didn't expect anyone mate. We are still trying but we always seem to mess up and sign our targets at a later date.}

22.) 18 Jan 2018 14:10:24
Just for argument sake let's say we have no more ins and outs. As the games with CL, FA cup and prem come thick and fast and we get 1 injury to mane, firminio, Salah, ox. How deep are we for squad rotation? Remember what happened last year in January.

23.) 18 Jan 2018 14:27:20
Guys, if Coutinho was injured for 2-3 months and not sold, would we buy a "top top" player to replace him? :) I know we are all nervous, cause 2 years in a row playing in the CL would (maybe) brings us back on track with signings etc, but still, this squad just beat a team which hadn't lost this season, give the guys a break and stop talking about departed ex-players?

We are perfectly fine to qualify for the CL, hell, even to finish before Chelsea, imo.

24.) 18 Jan 2018 14:42:02
But he still not injured for 2/ 3 months.
He's gone and not coming back.
That's the difference.
We are now a player light for the front 3 and if Sturridge leaves which is a real possibility leaves us even lighter.
Salah, Firmino and Mane can't play every game.
Why gamble with CL qualification?

25.) 18 Jan 2018 14:53:27
I don't know about the rest of you but I'm not, well don't think I am yep just checked again I am definitely not a manager of a Premier league football club. Jurgen Klopp is however and he seems to be pretty good at it in my opinion so with that in mind I have decided to let him manage the team and I have just decided to support them. I think some of you lot spend far too much time on FIFA. Try reality boys and Girls its sooo much more fun. In Klopp we Trust. Im a BELIEVER.

26.) 18 Jan 2018 14:57:22
I personally think we’re going to make one more signing gents. If we don’t, well we’re going to have to get behind the team anyway we’ve got a good and capable squad. Let’s back them up no matter what.

27.) 18 Jan 2018 15:14:27
Well said whz! We are superb! We did just beat Man City and let’s not forget Virgil wasn’t playing in that game. Also people saying couts was this couts was that, he didn’t make us as gud as we are all on his own, we’ve got Salah, ox, mane, Solanke, ings, Woodburn, Lallana and Sturridge if he stays that’s decent rotation up top for the lesser games. The further we go in the champions league the better we will get in my opinion as we always up our game against more attacking teams, we will pick them off! YNWA.

28.) 18 Jan 2018 15:16:00
Another thing to remember is that we've being playing without Lallana for the first half of the season. Where does he fit in if we sign another attacking midfield player? Has everyone forgotten how good he was for us last season.

I know he hasn't looked as sharp since the injury but that's effectively another player coming into the squad for the second half of the season.

29.) 18 Jan 2018 15:50:31
Ben Woodburn will take his chances if Klopp offers him. He's young and raw, but he cvan make some contributions. In t hat sense, he's ready. Maybe this is his real opportunity to stake a claim, who knows?

30.) 18 Jan 2018 15:52:14
Have read all the comments and there are points to argue for both sides. I think ultimately another Jan signing might be more down to what happens with Sturridge than with the sale of Coutinho.
Last month at some points Klopp was benching (resting) TWO of the front four, which seemed to imply that he thought we had more than adequate cover. Maybe he sees the return of Lallana as something like a new signing?

Tbh, our goalkeeping situation is more of a worry than buying a replacement for Coutinho, especially if none of the club's 'true targets' are available. The Keita, and to a lesser extent, van Dijk transfers do give us an insight into the manager's thinking. It's more about who he wants than who is available, and he seems willing to go the extra mile (to Blackpool) to get these specific players in.

I think if Sturridge leaves we might get a squad player in (sort of a 'Klavan til we get van Dijk' type thing)? Other than that I think that's it.

31.) 18 Jan 2018 16:32:14
I keep seeing people the club has had time to get a replacement for Coutinho. I thought we replaced him in attack with Salah and in Midfield with Ox. I'm fairly certain Klopp and the club knew Coutinho would be leaving when they decided to spend 70 mill on those two.

I'm all for buying more better players whenever we can but I don't see any reason to replace Coutinho (again? ) .

32.) 18 Jan 2018 16:10:25
It's not really pressure from fans. I think we are all used to our ups and downs over the last 20 years we have seen them.

But the only way we can keep out of the pressure is by winning games. You can't stop the pundits from saying after a 0-0 draw against a mid table team "they missed that bit of magic that Coutinho offered".

I am not saying that using woodburn is wrong but I feel like we are putting a lot of pressure on the lad if we are thinking he will be playing part of a very dynamic midfield 3. He would be must better being subbed on for mane or salah. Not the pressure of pulling the strings. So many fans jumped on solankes back already and he's only played 400 mins.

I think the lad will take his opportunity if he is used, but will he effectively anyways? Or are we going to wait for the games where is 0-0 and expect him to come on and win us the game? It's a risky strategy.

33.) 18 Jan 2018 16:12:11
Who’s Woodburn?

{Ed025's Note - exactly..

34.) 18 Jan 2018 16:44:35
Our season shouldn’t hinge on us signing one player. That said Barcelona didn’t sign couts just for this season. They recognised that it gives him another few months to bed in and prepare for next season while giving iniesta some time to recover/ prepare for CL games. I’d love to see us go out and get the player (s) that have been identified as soon as possible. Fingers crossed that’s in this window. Otherwise we’ll have to wait. But if Sturridge does go and we suffer an injury the squad does begin to look a little thin.

35.) 18 Jan 2018 18:20:40
Some massive overreactions on here! If we sign someone we still have the second best team in the league, what if De Gea gets injured? United screwed, harry Kane? Good bye Harry Kane team, arsenal are a sh*t show right now, Chelsea? Why overpay for a player most of you have o my seen on YouTube when if Klopp doesn’t want him enough? A massive amount of money to waste.

36.) 18 Jan 2018 18:42:32
Give Woodburn a chance to show what he can do and focus on getting the best keeper available. Surely that the most pressing requirement at this moment to preserve what is looking like a promising campaign.



17 Jan 2018 18:14:32
Have Milan contaced us regarding loaning Sturridge ed?


{Ed002's Note - Milan cannnot commit to purchases right now, so I would very much doubt it.}

1.) 17 Jan 2018 18:45:20
AC Milan or Inter Milan?

{Ed002's Note - AC Milan.}

2.) 17 Jan 2018 19:16:58
The op should have said inter as is them linked.

3.) 17 Jan 2018 18:55:52
Sorry ed, I meant Inter Milan. Just read the Echo that's all mate.

{Ed002's Note - Ok.}

4.) 17 Jan 2018 19:01:30
The rumour is inter. Have inter ed?

5.) 17 Jan 2018 19:36:18
Well if you look towards actual people who know like Liverpool’s Mouthpiece James Pearce you’ll know they have.

6.) 17 Jan 2018 20:34:41
Looks like they are in for him let's hope they cover the wages and have a must buy term and not an option to buy.

7.) 17 Jan 2018 20:46:38
it is Inter Milan not Milan AC.

8.) 18 Jan 2018 02:35:28
If its AC Milan, then maybe a cash + swap deal with Suso will do both clubs a great deal. Whether it is AC or Inter, I think Sturridge's time at Liverpool is up. At one point he was so good but injuries ended his Liverpool career.



17 Jan 2018 17:32:40
Hi Ed002

I was wondering if there is likely to be any new Sharkopods please to cover the updated January in and oit activity, given most of not all potential targets on the last Sharkopod are very inlikely because of mixed reasons?

I appreciate your busy but thought if there was one coming it would make things clear to all.

Thanks for your work.


{Ed002's Note - Perhaps but there are others for Arsenal, Spurs, Everton and the European clubs to do first.},

1.) 17 Jan 2018 17:46:48
Ed002, is it possible to have one that covers all the above + any other tidbits of info (incl. Liverpool)? I think it was over the summer you did one to cover multiple clubs and it was very interesting to hear what was going on.

{Ed002's Note - Each will get there own - perhaps an updat covering all in the last few days would be a good idea. Thanks.}

2.) 17 Jan 2018 17:52:40
Ok mate fair enough. Thank you.

3.) 17 Jan 2018 18:13:18
Sounds good to me ed. Look forward to it. Wont chase either😥.

4.) 17 Jan 2018 18:35:26
Ed002 you are a gentleman and a scholar, thanks look forward to it!

5.) 17 Jan 2018 18:52:27
Love your sharkpods ed. Keep up the good work.

19 Feb 2018 17:58:14
Ed as far as tou are aware, ate Madrid willing to sell Navas to us providing they get there replacement?


{Ed002's Note - it is not a “to us “ matter.}



02 Feb 2018 14:55:28
Clyne added to the CL squad. A bit strange Ed001 don't you think mate? I was thinking his days were numbered with us?


{Ed001's Note - just shows we had a gap and are being careful. Everton decided they didn't need to add Garbutt to their Europa League squad and ended up without a left back. It is silly to leave a gap when you have a player just in case.}

1.) 02 Feb 2018 15:56:24
Ed01 do you not think Clyne will play at all then when he returns to fitness. Excuse me if I'm wrong but I'm sure I remember reading on here in the past you possibly saying Klopp does not rate him.

{Ed001's Note - there have been a large number of issues between the two. It would be a surprise if he did get games.}

2.) 02 Feb 2018 16:11:38
Cheers for the reply Ed01 mate. Are the issues well publicised or in house.

{Ed001's Note - inhouse.}

3.) 02 Feb 2018 18:38:56
I don't know what's gone on but I hope he never plays for us again, he's simply not good enough for us, never was.

Spot on, Salah. I have read elswhere and seen where fans keep saying Clyne is quality. I don't lknow which games these people have been watching or if it is the case of "absence makes the heart go fonder". Clyne is pants offensively and defensively and like his fellow headless chicken Kyle Walker, proves that good athletes do not make good footballers.

I don't claim to be in the know at all but what I have to say is honest truth. Me and clyne have the same barber and I've met him a few times when he used to come to London for a trim. However it's been a long time I've seen him but my barber told me his attitude has changed since signing for Liverpool and he believes the money has changed him and made him focus less on his football.

FatboyFatNotSlim - interesting mate thanks for sharing.

BRover, couldn't agree more mate.

Although I don’t think Clyne is the answer to the rb spot. He’s a steady eddy that plays at a consistent level week in week out without being spectacular or dire. He’s a solid 7 when he plays for me. Not the best going forward but defensively is better than some on here suggest. But I do think we need to go out and get a real quality right back that’s is able to offer something going forward and be good defensively.

So there we have it. Klopp confirming no more signings . Studge also off out on loan. Lallana injured. Its a tough ask now to finish top 4 with the numbers we have available. Surely means Woodburn, Ings etc might get chances. An injury to Bobby or Mo and we are done for!


1.) 29 Jan 2018 14:44:47
Worrying really. I've always trusted Klopp but his recent comments have created doubts.

First of all talking about doing a lot of business in the long term is just stupid. It contradicts what he says about him thinking our current tools are good enough to cope without coutinho. Current playing staff know it's a matter of time before they are replaced.

Seems like he's losing the plot. I just hope he gives the likes of Woodburn, Ejara and Ings a chance and stop giving the likes of Moreno and Migs chances rather than just being stubborn.

Oh well, that's the football season pretty much over then, when does the cricket season start?

3.) 29 Jan 2018 15:32:08
Klopp wants to trust the squad that he has and we just have to trust Klopp. its very hard to try and bring players in half way through the season without paying over the odds . i still believe we will finish in top 4 and have a good run in CL.

4.) 29 Jan 2018 15:42:11
no matter how bad things get, there is no excuse for cricket mate.



25 Jan 2018 18:09:06
Ed do you think we have the squad to compete to stay in the top4 for the remainder of the season, if with our nearest rivals strengthening?


{Ed002's Note - Sure.}

1.) 25 Jan 2018 19:09:27
Of course, Kloppsred. It is up to us to show it. We went 18 unbeaten with the very same set of players so why should anything change? If we allow one loss in 19 to derail all the good we have done after the Spurs debacle then we have no one to blame BUT ourselves for allowing that to fester.

2.) 26 Jan 2018 16:47:11
BTW Mark, do you ever have anything good to say about LFC cos most of of your posts always seem to have a moan it them?



19 Jan 2018 18:06:59
Good evening ed001

Wanted your thoughts please mate as to were you think we are as a club compared to Chelsea, Spuds and Arsenal. In terms of squad, team you thoughts on who might finish the season were. Appreciate its a long question mate. No worries of you to busy.


{Ed001's Note - sorry mate, had to leave it until this morning to answer as I was so busy yesterday. Friday tends to be extremely busy with the match previews for Saturday to do, on top of editing etc.

Overall I think Arsenal, as things stand, are miles behind us, Chelsea and Spurs. Their team and squad are the weakest I can remember them having.

Chelsea have a good team, but they lack cover within the squad, though they have an excellent youth system, they have not fed enough of them into the first team before this season. It means they lack the experience they should have had outside of the first choice players.

Spurs are also very weak in terms of back up players. If they do not have their first choice XI on the pitch, then they are very much weaker, which has shown in their inconsistent results this season.

However, we are in a similar position, added to the fact that we lack in the centre of midfield, but we have an attack that is much better than those other 3 which balances it out. The uncertainty over the defence, including keeper, has hindered us badly. Overall us, Chelsea and Spurs are fairly equal. Spurs have the better defence, Chelsea the strongest central midfield and us the best attack.

As for where everyone will finish, I don't do predictions mate, far too superstitious!}

Great reply Ed
The most interesting out of those clubs is Arsenal for me. The whole reason given to the fans for moving stadium, increasing ticket prices and having more hospitality was to compete with the big boys.
Since they’ve done this they appear to have gone backwards instead of reaching the next level.
Got 2 Arsenal mates in work and they are steaming over the situation.

{Ed001's Note - it is poor management that is the issue there, Wenger has failed to recruit enough players because he tries too hard to show faith in players already at the club.}

2.) 20 Jan 2018 08:32:43
I agree with all the above Ed, but I think it’s also noteworthy we are the most settled and seem to have positive momentum right now which is impacting team morale and our performances IMO.

Arsenal is a mess with the question marks around Wenger and some of their best players leaving, while Conte isn’t exactly settled and happy, Spurs is under threat of their best players being poached if they don’t start winning something soon (and without the wage structure to attract like for like replacements), while Liverpool seems to be in a pretty happy place at the moment with Klopp and, despite Coutinho leaving, some good talent arriving on a fairly regular basis.

3.) 20 Jan 2018 09:37:31
Many thanks for the reply ed mate, appreciate your input. I agree totally with what youve said. I just hope us having a weeker cenral midfield area doesn't cost us. Next season we should be fine with the addition of Keita and another.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

4.) 20 Jan 2018 10:49:34
I think I asked a similar question last season as I felt our bench was a lot weaker than the likes of Chelsea arsenal spurs and at the time it was. I think around the time we had a bench full of youngsters and klopp looked reluctant to bring any of them in until very late in the game. I think now our bench and squad in general is a lot better looking, partly down to less injuries than at the time I felt this, but a lot is down to signings we’ve made making an immediate impact. Kudos to klopp. When you’ve got Ings and Adam Lallana on the bench you can make changes and not lose the quality and press. We look in a better place than spurs Chelsea and Arsenal at present and momentum seems to be with us.

Ed am I right in thinking Ndidi is a player you have suggested and would like, and not a player we have shown any interest in yet mate?


{Ed001's Note - yes you are right. I wish we would go for him, but we have shown no interest.}

I don't get people giving it thumbs down above with me pointing out to the OP its Navas not Neves? Lol argh well. Allison would be a great improvement for us but its not him we are looking at guys. Its KN.

Ed002 has said forget thoughts on Allison? Its Kaylor Navas Klopp sees aa his number 1 GK target for the summer. Forget Sly Sports.

Ed with KN would you say he is an upgrade on what we have already. Also is he seen as N0.1 or N0.2. Or does that depend on which side of the bed Klopp gets out of?


{Ed002's Note - like Klopp, I have no idea about the GKs.}
