Ryan Kent has gone out on loan to Freiburg. Decent move. Hopefully he gets some game time.




05 Jun 2017 17:49:56
According to Graeme Kelly, the man who has been committed in his belief that Van Dijk would join us, all the way back to January, believes he knows the transfer structure of the deal.

Apparently, Van Dijk will cost £44 million and 8 million add ons (The add on being that we win the Premier League)

Not sure how true this is, but for me, the deal sounds like it is good for all parties. I still think 50 million plus for a centre back is over the top, but to buy quality sometimes you have to overspend. Hopefully he can shut me down and humiliate me by putting in some good performances.

Also, I think Joe Gomez's time at Liverpool is done. With Van Dijk starting, and hell, even Klavan ahead of him in the pecking order, Joe will have no choice but to leave to pursue first team football. A shame because I think the boy could be something special, if given time. I really hope he leaves on a loan but, with the money spent, and interest in him, I think the move will be permanent.

Man I hope to god we end up paying £52 million for Dick Van Dyke!

2.) 05 Jun 2017 18:07:17
Think we'll loan Joe out from what the Ed's have said. Hopefully he has a good spell somewhere, comes back next summer and we sell Klavan.

3.) 05 Jun 2017 18:07:41
Both Sakho and Gomez will bring us some serious cash.

4.) 05 Jun 2017 18:18:08
If those figures are reasonably close then I think it's a brilliant deal. Expensive but so much better than what we already have and with scope for improvement at his age. Considering we should get a decent amount if we sell sakho and considering stones went for 50m last year,50 odd million seems par for the course for a good player in this summers market.

5.) 05 Jun 2017 18:23:15
Could klopp be thinking of using Gomes at either full back position? I'm sure he played RB for one of the England squads? Scored a beauty from there as well I seem to remember.

6.) 05 Jun 2017 18:39:17
Klavan or Gomez?

I know which player I'd be keeping.



30 May 2017 14:45:24
Very happy with the signing of Dominic Solanke. He is a deadly finisher, broken all kinds of records at youth level, and could really benefit from developing in our U23 squad before being moved up. Also, 2-3 million for a quality youth player who Mourinho has previously ear marked to be a big player for Chelsea and England, to the point that he said if Solanke didn't make the first team that it would be down to his, Mourinho's fault. Huge praise from a man who rarely gives it.

However, there does seem to be a down side to potential signings today. And that is that it looks like Ryan Sessegnon will be moving to Tottenham instead of us. The boy wants to stay in London, apparently, and fair play to the lad. Tottenham is a fantastic place for youngsters to develop and be given opportunities, unlike teams like Chelsea, City and United. So Sessegnon is clealy not moving to Tottenham for the money, he is moving because of further development and opportunities. A shame, as I think the lad had tremendous ability for someone his age, but we move on. Simple as that.




07 Jul 2016 11:59:47
So it looks like Jordan Ibe really is leaving for Bournemouth, and for the reported 15 million too. In all honesty I think this is a good deal all round. Ibe needs to play more regularly and I think Bournemouth might be a great place to ply his trade. Best of luck to the lad, I wish nothing but the best for him.

Also, before people starting jumping on the 'we need a replacement' 'we need a costly replacement now' bandwagon. I have to admit, i don't think it is entirely necessary. Ibe was on the fringes of the squad after all, not a regular starter under Klopp.

So, rather than spend money to replace Ibe. why not give Sheyi Ojo the chance to push for the position. The lad is young, already contributed with a number of assists last season and looks like he would be up to challenge for a place.

We don't always need to go out and sign players the moment one leaves. We have several capable youngsters who can step in, Branagan and Ojo are at the top of my personal list along with Stewart.

And for all those people who say they are not good enough. look at Harry Kane as a prime example, struggled on loan but has scored 20 plus goals in the last two seasons. All Kane needed was a chance, just one chance to prove his worth and he delivered big time. If he had not then I am sure Tottenham would be lugged with an expensive signing who didn't have the consistency to play at the top of his game, ala Soldado.

Just my thoughts guys, I do wonder how many of you actually share my opinion on this though. After all, we could use the 15 million in areas we need to improve, ala left back.

Anyway, I hope the EDs are having a pleasant day and that all us fans - Yes, even you Harry - are having one equally as good.



1.) 07 Jul 2016 12:09:25
Good post. I am actually quite sad to see Ibe leave, because we all had high hopes for him, but it seems things did not work out - and he did get a chance last season, unlike many youths simply pushed into the fringes - so the deal seems good for all parties involved. Replacing him would be a bit silly, since we already got Mane in as a starter and Ojo looks like the better rated talent currently. Not to mention the Coric rumours, and Marcovic still being part of the club and perhaps getting a chance in pre-season.

2.) 07 Jul 2016 12:26:18
I agree, good post Mango. Let him go and we don't need to replace fringe players. Use our youth development, Klopp knows what he is doing. Ibe looked lost going forward for us, hope he does and wish him all the best.

3.) 07 Jul 2016 12:27:43
Good post. Shame about Ibe, he will be making the right move and under Howe who knows how far he'll go?

4.) 07 Jul 2016 12:28:54
If it's true and we get 15mln for him then it's a good deal for all parties. He gets game time and a chance to develop, we get a very good sum for reinvestment into areas where we lack (LB) and we have capable junior replacements in Markovic and/ or Ojo that hopefully get a real chance to step up with proper game time.

5.) 07 Jul 2016 12:37:27
Hope he rips it up at Bournemouth good luck to the lad, needs game time. and we need to spend the cash on Hector, I'm sure klopp will read this and think, good idea lad.

6.) 07 Jul 2016 12:47:22
Bid for hector soon then.

7.) 07 Jul 2016 13:01:48
That's exactly why you play the kids. You either get a first team player or a nice transfer fee.

Always lock them into contracts because there is always someone to sell to.

Sometimes they won't sign which is fair dos bur tour hardly going to get burnt with first pro contracts.

Ibe moves on with all the best wishes, we get 15 mil for the coffers and we now out focus on another kid, maybe ojo. Give him a season and see how he does and a kid that age with potential regardless of form for us will fetch another ten mil next year easy peasy. Then move on to the next one until you find one that is good enough fir us.

If you want to keep them but don't want to have a hand in the development then sell then with buy back options. You won't make near enough money in but you won't get biten on the ass when said player becomes ballon sore winner haha

Good luck ibey lad. No hattricks against us though.

8.) 07 Jul 2016 12:51:06
I sincerely hope we put in a buy-back clause if indeed he does leave the club this summer. He's still a young lad and learning his trade. Can't help thinking we're letting him go a little too early.

{Ed002's Note - Why the sudden obsession with buy back clauses? I am not sure Liverpool can start to look to reduce their asking prices by doing such things.}

9.) 07 Jul 2016 13:14:59
Do we not already have a replacement for him in the form of Saido Mane'? This nets this deal back to circa £15m which is perhaps commercially more of what you would of expected.

Good luck Ibe, unfortunately just didn't live up to expectations!

10.) 07 Jul 2016 13:17:56
A buy back clause is not just something you put in there for fun or to look smart. You have to have a real plan behind it like Bayern for example, had with Lahm, Kroos, Alaba and Can (who we had to match his buy back fee to sign) . The sudden LFC fans` obsession with buy back clauses makes no sense, IMO.

11.) 07 Jul 2016 13:19:39
There is no need for buy back clauses, if the lad becomes good enough we will spend the money to buy him back. As ed has said it would reduce the fee and we have sold him. What makes anyone think he would want to come back to us. Morata is a special case, forget about buy backs.
Best of luck to Ibe, he has potential but as has been said he looked completely lost any time he played last year. He had a decent spell under Rodgers but I'm not sure he has the game intelligence to use all the pace and power he possesses.

12.) 07 Jul 2016 13:52:03
I think its the emergence of ojo that has pushed this deal through. It is clear neither ibe or ojo will be a starter this season, so there is only space for one on the bench in reality.
Ojo shows a lot of promise so ibe has been moved on to give him a chance.

13.) 07 Jul 2016 14:06:21
I agree that it was time for Ibe to move on, and I think the fee is one that we can be happy with. £15m for a player who got his chance but failed to live up to expectation is fine with me. Good luck to the lad, but was time for him to move on.

I don't agree with the people saying we don't need to replace him though. Yes we got Mane, but Ibe was the only wide man we had. Mane can play out wide but he's not an out and out winger. We have a couple of good options up front and also in the "Creative Midfielder/ Number 10" roles but we don't have any pacey wide men.

Sure we have Ojo but I don't think we can expect a 19yr old to be the only option we have out wide. We need more pace and someone who can actually put a decent ball into the box.

14.) 07 Jul 2016 14:46:29
Has he actually signed yet. just says fee agreed. don't run before you can walk.

15.) 07 Jul 2016 15:25:36
Did yous not know the buy-back clause is the new black?
Just because it's being talked about as part of the Canos sale now people want it included in every single deal.
Maybe Skrtel will have a 10/ 11 type season at Fener.
Quick! Insert a buy-back clause!

Really, 15mil is a great deal for such an unproven player. Ibe is all potential. Still, I'll be sorry to see him go. I could watch his goal against WB a thousand times. Always fun to watch 3 Pulis poles hit the deck like that. :)

16.) 07 Jul 2016 16:00:27
im thinking this is the reason we signed Mane because the club was in talks to sell Ibe, it makes sense one in one out so as others have said there's no reason to go out and buy a player as imo we already have done, good luck to Jordan he will show what he is about its a pity he never got a run out with us because i'm sure his potential would have turned into talent, so good luck to him and Skertal i hope they do well in their new clubs.

17.) 07 Jul 2016 16:34:59
NorRed, you don`t replace fringe players with players that won`t play. That is senseless especially if you are trying to reduce a bloated squad like we have. We have options on the right (Mane, Milner and Lallana) so adding another player will make it 4 options and that is why we don`t need to replace him.

18.) 07 Jul 2016 17:50:26
All the best to Ibe. Hope he develops and fulfills the early potential that he showed. Playing regularly will always help.


19.) 07 Jul 2016 20:36:34
Don't forget Liverpool don't get 15mil for Ibe, they get just over 12mil as Wycomb get a percentage.

20.) 07 Jul 2016 23:20:20
Good luck to Ibe. He wasn't good enough and never will be. I wish him well for his future.

21.) 08 Jul 2016 05:11:36
RedOhio, I agree you shouldn't replace fringe players with ones that don't play. I think he should be replaced with a better standard of player. What good is selling players and reducing the squad if all we are left with is the players we had last season. We need to improve, we should be aiming to finish top four and with the other teams competing for those places improving we need to as well, not just trimming the fat.

Klopp will improve players the players we already have but he can't turn Milner into Messi.

I don't agree with you that lallana is a wide player though. Sure he can play there but that's not his natural position and he still doesn't add any pace to the side (which I feel we lack, other than sturridge who do we have right now? ) I think he can do a job for us but he shouldn't be starting week in week out as a wide player. Mane I agree is an option but Milner shouldn't be in the starting lineup.

22.) 08 Jul 2016 12:19:01
£15m for a guy who is still unproven, a big gamble and the question appears to be ability to deliver on his potential is a very good return. I hope he does well because he seems a likeable lad and has potential but it also seems like he isn't going to move on more with us.

23.) 09 Jul 2016 15:13:23
NorRed, I agree with you completely on Milner and Lallana. I say in fact, I wouldn`t mind if they got sold because if they are not playing and should be on the bench as you say, their wages alone will count as what we call Dead money meaning, money that isn`t working for you. If the players on stupid wages aren`t playing regularly then they should be off the books and let another club deal with them.



31 May 2016 22:52:57
The Italian media seems to think we have signed Samuel Bastien from Anderlecht for between 4.6 million and 6 million, do you know anything about this E. D?

At first I thought it was lazy journalism, a writer trying to trick people into reading his story, but the player isn't someone who would bring in views. He is a relative unknown, at least to me, and I can't recall ever seeing his name being linked with us before.

Bastien, if he signs, would clearly be one for the future as, according to the same article, he wouls be loaned out immediately after joining us. Ala Divock Origi.

Anyway, wondering if you are aware of this or even know the player because I know absolutely nothing about him. Best wishes to all of you and I hope you have a restful few weeks before the transfer window finally opens :D.


1.) 01 Jun 2016 08:21:36
He was playing in Serie B this season apprently.

2.) 01 Jun 2016 11:41:08
Labled the 2nd De Bryne no less. I guess this is the way now, rather then the next (insert former worldy here), it's now 'the second coming'.

Anyway, seems this could be an 'under radar' CAM over both Coric and Gotze. At 19/ 20 he can hardly be 'one for the future' looking at the age of some first team players.

This is Klopps way right? Sign young unknown players from lower sides or leagues and then create. We might see Gotze etc as 'a smokescreen', when in actual fact it's Bastian, Chilwell, Karius and a like.

I've highlighted most football clichés, but feel free to add more :)

18 million, plus 2 million add-ons, AND a 20% sell on clause for Danny Ings.

That is a far better deal than I expected. Well done, Michael Edwards. I only hope a similar deal can be reached with Divock Origi and Simon Mignolet.

And best of luck to Danny Ings, has been an absolute professional during his time with Liverpool, despite numerous injuries and limited chances. I hope the lad can go on to have an injury free career and score a number of goals, execpt against Liverpool, of course.

This has been an excellent transfer window so far, let's see what will happen by the end of the european transfer window now.


1.) 09 Aug 2018 22:19:55
It’s ridiculous that people on this site were criticizing Edwards earlier today, the guy knows what he is doing.



18 Jul 2018 18:53:45
Damn, my heart goes out to Ox.

To think one inocuous challenge could result in multiple ligament damage.

Not only that but he decided to keep it a secret from the rest of the fanbase, possibly even members of the staff and squad, so that the positive enthusiasm around the club would not be diminshed. The lad dserves all the best in his recovery and I can only hope that this injury does not rob Ox of realising his incredible potential.

I must admit, when we first showed signs of wanting Ox, I was completely against it. Firmly against it even. I thought he was limited, technically and physically. I thought he would not show the right attitude, application or determination to improve. I thought he would be our worst buy of the season, someone to get rid of as soon as possible.

Well, Ox put me firmly in my place and made me realise how stupid and short sighted I was. Ox managed to breath life into a midfield that lacked goals and creativity, and at a time that we most needed it.

I can only hope he comes back stronger and hungrier as ever, and continues to prove the doubters wrong. Best of luck Ox, you have made a believer out of me.


1.) 18 Jul 2018 19:15:34
With you there, LFC MANGO. Gutted for the lad. The best thing we can do now is to support him through his recovery and be ready to welcome him with open arms as a fan base and as a club cos like it or not, we missed him in Kiev and all the games we played after his injuries. Stay strong, Oxie.

2.) 18 Jul 2018 19:17:13
It'll be like a new signing when he's back on the team sheet. Hopefully we deal with his recovery properly and it doesn't become a reason for him to retire early. Stay strong Oxo. As for Alisson. I'll wait until it's fully confirmed before I wet my pants prematurely lol.

3.) 18 Jul 2018 19:23:41
Acl, other ligament and hamstring all went on the boy. Absolutely devastated his knee it what seemed like a real normal challenge. No twist or anything.

He will come back fine. He's got the heart and the support and the fire after missing put on cl final but also having the season of his life.

Brewster has credited him with helping him out and has signed a new contract.

All the best ox lad.



06 May 2018 18:49:01
I'm starting to see why all the EDs become tired of Liverpool fans. We are such a whinny, pessimistic, expectant and sour bunch.

Yes, we were poor. TODAY.

So, why am I seeing posts like 'We're going to finish outside the top 4' and 'We're never going to win the Champions League Final. '

We have one more match, against Brighton, Brighton who have nothing left to fight for, neither relegation or a Europa place. We play Brighton at Anfield, Anfield which has been known to be our 12th man and inspire the boys to victory. We are in a leading position in the top 4, even if Chelsea win their remaining games, Liverpool will be the ones to decide where they end up finishing.

We have a Champions League final in three weeks. Something none of us, outside of possibly Ron, would have expected in our wildest dreams. Especially with Man City looking like sure fire finalists, a team we knocked out, btw.

We have made a number of progressive steps, signings, style of play, management, stadium capacity increase. So many positive steps.

And yet, certain members of the Liverpool fan base are so shallow minded that one poor performance sours everything. Wow, I wish to give my apologies to all the EDs that have to listen to our whinning and bickering. Worst of all, we are only being shown the comments that are appropriate, can only imagine the crap you have to shift through and delete.

End of the day, if supporting Liverpool is too hard for you, or we do not attain the success you so clearly desire, then support Real Madrid or someone more likely to win titles regularly. It will do your heart much better and we will not have to listen to endless gripes. The perfect solution in my opinion.


1.) 06 May 2018 19:02:27
We have one game against a team that doesn’t travel well. We’ve then got two weeks to refresh ourselves for Kiev. Still in our own hands. We did it on the last day against Boro and we can do it now against Brighton.

2.) 06 May 2018 19:04:13
it called venting mate
once people calm down then everything goes back to normal
but im sure I have see you among the crowd typing negative stuff after a defeat before so little hypocritical mate lol.

3.) 06 May 2018 19:09:56
Liverpool has blown three weeks in a row to guarantee top 4 for next season and have not shown up. I understand your post, but disagree. BHA will come all out for Liverpool next week and if we are not at our best, we will not finish top 4. We have no one else but ourselves to blaim. the past three weeks in domestic competition have been terrible. Blow a 2-0 lead at WBA, draw agains a horrible Stoke team, and absolutely not show up against Chelsea. I don't understand how you don't understand the frustration right now.

4.) 06 May 2018 19:25:06
JohnCrowJunior, I am not talking to the people upset by the defeat today. That I completely understand as we were below par for the majority of the match. The people the message was meant for was those connecting this match with our chances in our next two. It is ridiculous. This season has seen an improvement, and yet people still want to talk rubbish about anyone connected with the club. They prattle on about Liverpool not being good enough for this, not good enough for that, we can't beat Brighton, we're going to lose top 4, Real Madrid are going to demolish us. I am so tired of listening to those fans, the fans who go all doom and gloom at the first hint of trouble.

It is a small section of fans, thankfully, and I am grateful for that. For all I know these fans I detest are young, pretentious and needlessly expectant.

So, the message was not meant for fans who can see this game in isolation, it is for those who believe this result in any way destroy's our season. Hope this helps.

5.) 06 May 2018 19:43:16
Stone, there is frustration and there is outright "losing your s-word" and spouting your bile all over social media like a lunatic or spoiled, petulant child. You think these people are the only ones frustrate? Realy? These people think the rest of us are just cool and chill with the way we played? Come on, man.

We are all frustrated BUT if people thought Chelsea could not get the 3 points before the game then they did that on their own and showed an inability to grasp the realities of PL football. If people thought that our CL exertions would not in some way affect our league form esp. with our squad decimated by injuries in one position (midfield) over the past few weeks then again, they did that on their own. The fact of the matter remains that we are still in CONTROL of our destiny and that is how any of us would want it. Finally we will have a full week to prepare. the boys get a couple of days rest and we will give BHA a hell of a game. YNWA!

6.) 06 May 2018 19:54:18
IF we fail to beat BHA at home, with what we have at stake, do we even deserve top 4?
Great season all in all, but look like we’re running out of steam at the worst time, failure to add during January looks to be catching up with us a bit.
All this said, I will be very surprised if we don’t win at the weekend, then have a good break before Kiev.
Top 4 means so much in terms of recruitment, but even if we miss out, we can still qualify with a win against Madrid.
It’s really not all doom and gloom, it’s been a great season, all be it with a few disappointing results, but we are far better than we were when Klopp took over and we are still getting better, just look a bit jaded atm.
Get behind the boys, they’re very well paid professionals and I expect a professional performance next week, the 12th man will make it easier for the boys so sing your hearts out.

7.) 06 May 2018 20:16:31
Spot on, LFC MANGO and Yorkie. These "fans" seem so sure of themselves then my questions is "Why bother watching the team play if you are so sure they will lose"? They can't answer that cos all they know how to do is moan, whine and lose their heads cos LFC did not win a game that every other rational human being knew we could lose under the circumstances. They are so scared of their own shadows that they can't bring themselves to support the team when it is going thru a rough patch cos well, moaning is the easiest thing to do. We are STILL in a good ;position and we will have a full week of rest and prep and we will give BHA hell come next Sun and if we don't win, we have no one else to blame but us. YNWA!

8.) 06 May 2018 20:34:54
Cop on Lfcs mango we have lost 1 and drew 2 in our last three games. Don't be so condescending. As fans we deserve a bit of respect.

9.) 06 May 2018 20:30:30
Chelsea have not won their last 2 games yet.
If we finish 4th it’s because we deserve it, if we don’t then it’s because we don’t deserve it.
It’s a 38 game season, it doesn’t all rest on the last 4 games.
We’ve given everything for the CL final, I’m not worried about losing to Chelsea if it means we get to the CL final 👍.

{Ed0333's Note - surely we’ll beat Brighton and if we don’t we really don’t deserve to be in the champions league next season

10.) 06 May 2018 20:50:12
BRover, I get what you are saying. I am admittedly not good at expressing myself. My frustration is not today. It is the past 3 weeks. Sorry for coming off as a "spoiled petulant child". That was not the intention. But surely you can see why some are frustrated over the last three domestic results.

11.) 06 May 2018 21:06:39
Geri, I don't think LFC MANGO is being condescending. He like many of us, are as frustrated as these "fans" BUT we don't go around losing our marbles after a bad result ESP. if you know the unbearable circumstances under which our boys are playing. In fact, losing your marbles and acting like a spoiled child is how you lose respect, not earn it. BtW, respect is only deserved when it is earned.

{Ed025's Note - and what exactly are these "unbearable circumstances" brover?

12.) 06 May 2018 21:40:27
I’m a believer.

13.) 07 May 2018 14:44:50
Ed25, sorry. The word I should have used is "difficult", not unbearable.

{Ed025's Note - are we talking about liverpool or negativeredwalter brover?.. :)



19 Feb 2018 21:17:16
Damn, looks like Naby Keita might have pulled his hamstring playing for RB Leipzig tonight.

I can only hope it isn't too serious and that he can continue to contribute this season for his current club before he joins us. Hopefully this injury doesn't affect his ability, performance or development for the future.

Hamstring injuries can often be difficult to recover from quickly. Let's hope, when pre-season comes, he is fully recovered and free of any injury troubles.


1.) 19 Feb 2018 22:00:00
I’m sure he will be ok by the end of August.

2.) 19 Feb 2018 22:15:19
I hope he let's it recover properly and is not rushed back. As long as he’s fit for end of season that should be ok.

3.) 19 Feb 2018 23:13:53
am sure he'll be fine, unless he develops some kind of ongoing troubles with his hammy and glutes.
but hey it not like he playing for us tomorrow. Hope RBL get him back fit and firing soon.

4.) 20 Feb 2018 01:00:38
I hope rbl look after him properly and don't rush him back in, thinking he is gone any way, let's get what we can out of him before he leaves. Another reason I like klopp, he never rushes a player back, he actually cares about his team. Classy manager, high risk football can see us beating Bayern Munich 3 0 at their ground or can see us lose to west brom 3 2. I don't care, it has never been so exciting watching Liverpool for a long time.

There are still 11 games left in the German League and Leipzig are in a dogfight for a CL spot as things stand. I doubt they'll risk 7 or 8 games from their best midfielder in the hopes of screwing over his next club or squeezing out an extra one, especially as they have an extremely tough run-in.

He is their player until the end of the season so they can do as they please.

If we had agreed for couts to go in the summer instead of winter but done the deal in jan. would we be saying the same thing about our top 4 run in or latter stages of champs league? of course we wouldn't!

Why doesn't he just simply develop a 'back pain' like Coutinho?

8.) 20 Feb 2018 16:00:56
Leek - because he's not a giant version of a particular body part that will go nameless?

EDs, could you possibly put this up so that Benny Baller, in particular, can see it.

I want to apologise for my behaviour on chat, I turned things personal, and directed a number of insults towards Benny. I was out of line, frustrated and angry about the result, the performance and everything that happened in those last 90 minutes.

Disagrements are to be expected, but personal insults have no place in any sort of conversation. So I would like to offer my apologies, I have calmed down and realise I was out of line and instigator in much that transpired in chat.

Thank you in advance if you are able to accomplish this. All the best.


{Ed002's Note - Good for you Mango and I am sure Benny will appreciate it.}

1.) 27 Jan 2018 22:40:18
Hopefully Benny sees this. I feel like a real rubbish for letting this all get to me. Didn't want Benny to dwell on it or be affected by this in anyway. I will try to rein in my emotions in future. I do not want to be the kind of fan that takes shots at other fans, or questions their loyalty, intelligence etc. It is pathetic, I was pathetic. Only right I apologise.

{Ed002's Note - It is a great gesture and I know that fans get upset all too easily. That is why we have the disposable Other Page as a dump for the emotional posts on match days.}

2.) 27 Jan 2018 22:43:41
I've said it before that live chat is like a scene from a whiskey bar in a western sometimes. Can be pretty crazy.

{Ed002's Note - Do you really mean “whiskey” and not “whisky”?}

3.) 27 Jan 2018 22:47:35
I don't know what you said but things get said in the heat of the moment. I wish some others on here would follow your example.

Having read some of Benny's posts I think all will be good.

{Ed002's Note - I’ll translate that last sentence for you. “Having read Benny’s posts it is clear he is another knuckle dragging bonehead as well - he’ll understand.}

4.) 27 Jan 2018 22:49:06
Take's a bigger man to put his hand's up Mango so fair play.

5.) 27 Jan 2018 23:01:21
Mango get a dog and when you loose the rag go for
A long walk takes the edge off haha.

6.) 27 Jan 2018 23:14:03
Lol Ed002 some of the stuff on tap in there could well be whisky.

7.) 27 Jan 2018 23:20:37
Mango you're a good lad and so is Benny. I'm sure it is water off a ducks back and I look forward to hearing both your opinions again come the next chat.

8.) 27 Jan 2018 23:38:10
Irish whiskey ed002. Non of that rodeo crap lol 😂.

{Ed002's Note - we have a lot of posters from the land of the bog and the little people.}

9.) 27 Jan 2018 23:46:33
Im sure benny will forgive you mango, top man for apologising.

10.) 27 Jan 2018 23:54:37
lmfao 'knuckle dragging bonehead' hahaha!

Good on you mate, I'm sure there's no hard feelings mango.

11.) 28 Jan 2018 00:09:31
Don't mention the little people Ed. darby gill (Albert Sharpe) was my mother's next door neighbour growing up in Belfast before all the madness.

12.) 28 Jan 2018 01:14:02
I never saw the issue, but still takes a decent person to apologise when they knew they were in the wrong, so well done on that, wish more people did it.

I might be wrong but wasn't Grujic signed by Klopp due, in no small part, to Buvac's high recommendation?

Has nobody come to the conclusion that for Salah to overcome this new hurdle that, rather than leaving him on the bench or changing his position, he simply needs to play through it.

Time on the bench will do very little, Salah simply needs to find his rhythmn again, get used to the pressure that opponents are putting on him and figure out ways of overcoming it on the pitch. Once he figures it out I have no doubt Salah will get back to his best.

In all honesty, I think the front 3 all need to play through this so that they can re-find that deadly connection which made us a formidable team last season. Everything feels forced now, or very last minute, there is little of the linking and interchanges that we saw last season that led to goals. Give them time, to assess and figure out new plays on the pitch and we will have the front 3 of last season once again.

This year will be a challenge but, I have to say, our midfield has really stepped up their game. Wijnaldum and Milner, in particular. It is almost like the signings of Fabinho and Keita has pushed them to be better, regalvanised them. Our defence seems to have a better understanding of their responsibilities, although I think our fullbacks need to be very careful that they do not push too far up and leave spaces in behind, ala Chelsea match yesterday.

Alisson, what a breath of fresh air that lad has. Without him, Chelsea would have gone away with three points. He is a very good shot stopper but, even better, he is excellent at ball distribution which is an added weapon in our arsenal.

This season looks promising and I hope, pray to anyone willing to listen, that we finally win a trophy. It has been a very, very long time after all. Once we overcome that hurdle, I think you will see a Liverpool side that plays with freedom, expression and everything Klopp's style of football is truly about.

Stay positive guys, think about where we were 5 years ago and look at us now. The difference is truly astounding.


{Ed001's Note - spot on. It takes games to find form and Salah took nearly half a season to explode last season.}

With an obligation to buy, apparently. Either way, good deal for him. Although it feels odd to be doing a deal with Southampton without a player coming to Liverpool. Guess I've been so used, over the years, to seeing Southampton players join Liverpool, not the over way around.

Best of luck to the lad, he deserves this opportunity.

The problem is that Klopp has made promises to players many times before and has let them down on numerous occasions. If he keeps doing this then he will gain a reputation as a liar, something he and the club will not want. Players will be hesitant to join us if they learn of Klopp's tendancy to promise and never stay committed to those promises. Would you work for someone who had a tendancy to behave as Klopp has in this regard?

Listen, I love Klopp as much as the next Liverpool fan but I am not blind to his antics. Klopp has outdone expectations, a Champions League final was never expected last season, but there are areas he can improve. Hopefully that will come with time.

Either way, it has been a great transfer window, regardless if no one else comes, but I just hope we don't have more cases of Grujic's and Ward's, who have been let down by the manager.

Sounds like Roma and Chelsea will be fighting it out for Kasper Schmeichel now.

A shame about Ward. Klopp really has messed him about and stifled his development. He should have been sent back on loan last year, after helping Hudderfield to the Premier league, but Klopp decided he needed to have 3 goalkeepers, because clearly two wasn't enough.

Not like Ward played very much, a very bad decision from Klopp in my opinion and another broken promise. He really does have a habit of this, which is a little worrying, because you can gain a reputation by acting like this.

I only hope the lad goes on to have a decent campaign in a new setting. I think Ward will turn out to be a decent buy by Leicester, and, fingers crossed, Liverpool's goalkeeping nightmare will be ended by the arrival of Alisson. Great keeper, little concerned by his habit of parrying the ball back into dangerous areas but that will hopefully be eliminated by some regular coaching.

Still, with or without a CAM coming in, what a team we have this season. Hopefully we can go and win a trophy because it has been so long since I have seen our side celebrate a cup final. This might be the season we do though, I will keep my fingers crossed.

ED001, I am ashamed of you.

Comparing Benteke to a street lamp!?!?!? What has the street lamp done to earn such a reprehensible comparison!?!?!? Unbelievable, and it was a draw! A draw!?!?!? The lamp post is far more useful and productive than Benteke.

I would ask that you reconsider your evalutaion and do what is right.


{Ed001's Note - apologies mate. I will hang my head in shame for the rest of the night.}

That is fantastic news.

I may have never met Salah before but I was keeping him in my thoughts through all hours of the day. To hear such positive news has put a real smile on my face. He is one of the Liverpool family as well as a big part of the Liverpool Rumours family. To know one of our own is okay and recovering. could not be happier.

All the best, Salah. I hope to hear more from you once you are ready and able.

If anything maybe Solanke will go to Rangers in order to get more first team football under his belt?

We are currently overloaded with strikers, due to unrealistic pricing, and need to move on a few to ensure that there is no issues within the camp to disrupt our pushes on multiple fronts. For me, loaning out Ings, and lowering the price on Origi, will be the best course of action.

I'm wondering what people think about West Ham's chances this season, not in terms of pushing for the title, because they are well below the required standard, but more so where they will finish in the league table.

They have reinforced, heavily, and brought in some talented young players. But, I can't help but remember Everton last year. Pundits, particularly Richard Keys, was convinced they would push for a champions league spot.

Is this a similiar situation to what Everton faced last year, unreal expectations and a lack of indentity and forward thinking. Or, have West Ham actually figured out a way to bring in a lot of players with a clear strategy in mind?

On paper, West Ham look really good but, as we all know, it is performance and results that matter most. Would be interested to hear people's opinions.


{Ed025's Note - we tried it last year and spurs tried it a few years back mango and it just does not work, west ham have imported too many players at once and are basically starting from scratch, i suppose it could work but i cant see it myself mate..
