So Nabil Fekir is looking likely to happen. Is he the real deal? With him and Keita joining the midfield would we have possibly the best midfield in the premiership?

It’s certainly looking promissing but could it be too many new options in midfield too fast with fekir, Keita and possibly ceballos? I think we will start the new season with 2 of our existing midfielders (Milner, Henderson and 1 more) and eventually bed the others in. I don’t think it would be until next Christmas that we will have a fully functioning ‘new’ midfield but I’m excited regardless!

2.) 25 May 2018 01:39:48
Toppling Man City's midfield will be difficult unless Silva leaves. But I agree a midfield of Hendo, Keita and Fekir will not be far off.

3.) 25 May 2018 02:53:55
We need one more behind them to complete the puzzle. It would match the Xabi - Masch - Gerrard combo. All we need is an Alonso! ❤️❤️❤️❤️. A modern day Alonso.

4.) 25 May 2018 05:15:12
What will happen to ox then?

5.) 25 May 2018 06:04:49
Fernandinho vs Henderson
DeBruyne vs Keita
Silva vs Fekir

Very close!

6.) 25 May 2018 06:32:14
Keita and fekir have some way to go to be considered anywhere near as good as those 2 lol.

7.) 25 May 2018 07:47:55
Why is it looking likely to happen chaps please? Have I missed something?

8.) 25 May 2018 09:16:54
James Pearce and Paul Joyce have mentioned that we will pursue him after the champions league game Kloppsreds.

9.) 25 May 2018 09:22:15
It's looking likely now because LFC-sanctioned reporters are writing about it, presumably with the club's approval.

10.) 25 May 2018 10:55:32
Good question Livebird, he's out till around Christmas or something last I looked but what when he comes back?
Before his injury he was probably most peoples 1st choice for our midfield without a doubt lol.

11.) 25 May 2018 11:43:15
In regards to Ox when he is back, I am not sure why people worry about having more quality players than we can fit into a single position. If we want to challenge on all fronts (or at least league and CL) we really need '1st team quality players' who can come in when there are injuries/ suspensions/ etc.

I would hope having 6 potential starters for 3 available positions (assuming the Fekir transfer happens - him, Hendo, Milner, Ox, Gini and Keita) would push those players to up their game to try and hold their spots!

I don't remember a time when we had any kind of depth like TBH. What an exciting time to be a Liverpool fan eh! :-)

12.) 25 May 2018 16:45:24
klopp loves to rotate the mid, and with these potentially coming on it gives us great depth in the squad . the ox will fit right in YNWA.

13.) 26 May 2018 12:55:16
Would love if we could put together a meaty, nasty midfield of Hendo-Keita-Milner/ Ox, a tech midfield with Keita-Fekir-Lallana, a press like crazy midfield with Keita-Lallana-Ox and variations of those.

As of now the three best play and that's it.



29 Jun 2015 22:42:12
Guus Hiddink is in talks with LFC. Apparently he is being lined up and is interested after leaving his international post. This is why it's been so quiet.

You make this up? You didn't, someone did. It's bs

The utter rubbish some people come up with for a little bit of attention.

Lovren to be hero or villain tomorrow? I can’t see whether he’s going to have an absolute stormer of a game or be the fall guy. I just have a feeling it will be one or the other. and hope it’s the hero as I like him as a player.
It is panto season after all ;-)

Lantern Jaws

1.) 16 Dec 2018 00:04:16
nice to see people already looking to blame him and he hasn't even played!

2.) 16 Dec 2018 00:35:01
Genuinely worried tbh. I think he'll be barely able to move.

Weighed down by the £75m striker that'll be in his back pocket.

3.) 16 Dec 2018 03:21:49
Swish, no one is looking to blame anyone here. The OP mentioned concern, no doubt based on the history of Lovren’s performances in a red shirt, about which Lovren we could well see tomorrow. Neither possibility would be a surprise, we just have to hope he plays against Man Utd like he always plays against Man City.

4.) 16 Dec 2018 09:35:19
This will be decided by our finishing and De Gea’s ability to save them (as usual) so even if we aren’t our normal solid selves at the back only fluffed chances will cost us today. They are shocking defensively it’s De Gea v Salah, Bobby and Mane.



25 Sep 2018 14:27:30
Anyone know if there any league cup highlights on regular tv (not sky/ BT) this week? Going to miss the match 😞.

Lantern Jaws

1.) 25 Sep 2018 15:13:20
I recommend the LFC TV site, it’s subscription but it’s a lot cheaper than paying for all the multiple subscriptions required to watch every match on Sky etc. Bit of a delay till the game is posted but if you’re willing to be patient to watch the next day at least you catch the game.

2.) 25 Sep 2018 16:25:11
Thanks for that SG 👍🏼.

Footballorgin. com posts full replays of most games an hour or so after they’ve finished.

Hi Eds and fellow reds,

Not a rumour or specifically Liverpool related but it's about all of the long term damage from heading the ball and the seemingly indisputable relation to dementia in older players. I see it's getting more and more coverage but nothing seems to be changing? Surely now is the time to get the younger kids getting the technique right and doing what we can to prevent future generations suffering from long term damage.
I saw this company called Headrite who seem to be doing some serious research into it but they seem small. Anyone have any info on them or if this is something that Liverpool F. C. or football in the wider sense are looking at seriously?

Sorry for the long post but it's an area that interests me a lot.

Lantern Jaws

1.) 20 May 2018 11:26:19
Very interesting actually, it's something I know absolutely nothing about but it interests me too, I'll read more on it before commenting further. Ed1 is probably the right man to talk to about this kind of stuff, the man is a walking football encyclopedia.

{Ed001's Note - the thing to look at is other sports, particularly American football, as there is a lot of research into the damage caused by head injuries. They are way ahead of the rest of sports at the moment.}

2.) 20 May 2018 11:46:20
Their is a will smith movie name concussion which is basically on it on rugby player. Anyone who wish to check out.

3.) 20 May 2018 11:48:29
I don’t really think there is much you can do about it. Repeated blows to the head will cause damage from minor undetectable damage to debilitating chronic health needs.

You can reduce the damage by introducing some kind of head protection I suppose.

4.) 20 May 2018 12:18:28
Thanks Ed1 - always a positive response from you regardless of the questions on here!

From what I see, there’s not enough focus on the correct technique and we need to get the kids/ underage squads improving on technique with lighter balls or training frames and hopefully over time it will help.
I suppose I was expecting top clubs to be a lot further in their training or developing this area than they are. Maybe there isn’t a real acceptance yet that heading footballs can cause real damage. and people think it’s the higher impact of American football/ rugby is all that contributes to these long term injuries.

{Ed001's Note - Jeff Astle's family have a charity that is supporting research into the links between heading a football and damage to the brain. Football itself is not really doing a lot though.}

5.) 20 May 2018 16:37:57
3 close members of my family have had forms of Dementia or Alzheimer's. I know first hand the horrors it can bring. None of them had any head trauma in their life. These types of illness don't necessarily need anything to spawn them. I, personally am not convinced that there is much to be concerned about in football as opposed to life itself being the catalyst for the these conditions. I wish the Astle family all the luck they need in their quest but I hope the answer they seek is that there is no link and that they are not just looking for something to blame. As I said, I know exactly how horrible it is to face these things. At the end of the day, you have realise terrible ships happen.

6.) 20 May 2018 18:57:24
There are some research on heading and long term head injuries, and there seems to be a small connection. Introducing headgear has been tried out, and there seem to be little help from the headgear. The biggest problem in football and head injuries seems to be head to head impacts and elbows to the head, hence the recent changes in rules. The medical straff and researchers would like the punishment for elbows to the head to be more severe, but there is some resistance from the FA and similar commities in other countries, and some resistance from the Referees and their governing commities.

Care of the athlete after headinjuries are important, rest is very important, but that is something that competes with the importance to get the player to play matches as soon as possible, and there are more difficult to decide when the player is fullt renovered after a concussion than after most other injuries.

{Ed002's Note - It may help to search on "Jeff Astle" and "heading".}

7.) 21 May 2018 11:34:43
For all those doubting the damage caused, all research suggests at this point that repeated, lower impact blows cause just as much if not more long term damage as high impact, low volume collisions. Whether or not you 'believe' it, there is no serious medical/ scientific argument against the widely accepted fact that things like heading are detrimental to normal long term brain health. Whether or not anything can be done to change this within the sport is questionable - frankly, I think a lot of sports avoid an appropriate level of focus on their risk and dangers due to Europe and America's obesity epidemic which makes everyone wishing to change sports on medical grounds very nervous.

8.) 22 May 2018 12:34:36
I agree with you. There is quite a significant amount of hard evidence from trustworthy sources which indicate long term damage from heading footballs. Anyone who disagrees should do some research into it.
But also, apart from the damage resulting from not being able to head the ball properly, improving technique will also improve players skill in this area. Having read more into Headrite and the work they seem to be doing along with some reputable academics, I think we could be on the verge of big change. hopefully anyway!

So Lemar will sign for Barcelona tomorrow and Couts stays with us.

Lantern Jaws

The worst part about this is Balague gets to say he's right.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 22:25:03
Why not both? Coutinho was to replace Iniesta, Lemar is an option to replace Neymar after Dybala looks unlikely.

Barcelona would have gone from "In decline" to fixed in one summer. Lemar, Coutinho, Dembele, Messi and Suarez.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 22:37:27
Ugh can't decide if I want pip or not!

Have we added depth / enhanced first team / both / neither?

Keeper still dubious
Defence .
Well stocked midfield with 2 James Milners now in the ox

What's the craic with ings? Has he a future?

4.) 31 Aug 2017 22:49:48
Without getting Lemar I think we need to keep him. Sulky hit or not.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 23:07:17
That is a dear Klopp question.



31 Aug 2017 12:55:45
So VVD is on his way. somewhere!
Who knows where?
Who thinks it's us?

Hate to say it but usually when potential Liverpool transfers take this turn, they don’t come to us. A lot of gamesmanship and public statements from agents bring more parties to the table and price inevitably goes up.
Someone will probably trump us in their offer and we will miss out.

But if we do, we’ll get someone else. :-)

Sorry I'm waaaay behind the curve here - but what kind of player is Lemar? A coutinho replacement? Or more a winger? And where would he fit in?

Why oh why are we not sorting out our defence?! We are quality going forward.
