Bayern want 48 Million Euros for Renato Sanches? Surely he's worth a thought with Keita hanging in the balance.

1.) 19 Jul 2017 20:32:16
Hasn't he gone on loan?

2.) 19 Jul 2017 20:40:03
Can't settle in Germany, too much of a risk surely?

3.) 19 Jul 2017 20:42:12
I mentioned this some weeks ago. For me he still has time on his side to fulfill his undoubtedly immense potential. He moved to early I feel in his career. Or what about Leon Goretzka? Both would fit in to Klopp's style of play. Would free up funds for others also. Such as Gabriel Barbosa from Inter. Unquestionable talent just a matter of fulfilling it. Which would then leave the problematical area of CB.

4.) 19 Jul 2017 21:07:16
Surely signing Sanchez and Barbosa would be a massive risk? both been failures in their first seasons in a top league.
They do both have time and obvious talent but it's too big of a risk for me.

5.) 19 Jul 2017 21:07:50
Why the obsession with signing a midfielder? Ok, Keita is obviously rated but if out of range then why scroll down through all the rest to find someone who may not even be an upgrade on what there is?

6.) 19 Jul 2017 21:13:47
The move to Bayern was too early imo, especially with the midfielders they had in the side already. To go thru such a high in his career of playing unreal stuff in the Euro's and getting that big money move to then not getting game time would have completely dented his confidence. Young guy aswell let's not forget. His potential like LFC.77 said is unquestionable.

7.) 19 Jul 2017 21:28:09
I don't think we need to buy just any midfield who is available, we have plenty of midfielders already. I think Klopp really wants Keita now because he thinks he is such a good player and who knows who else might be interested in him next summer. Just buying whoever is available is how we ended up with the likes of Balotelli.

8.) 19 Jul 2017 21:25:16
The lad has been trouble at Bayern. Expected a starting berth, wasn't prepared to work for it, didn't learn the language and has partied hard. The boy is the new Anderson.

9.) 19 Jul 2017 22:24:57
Must be hard for a young Portuguese speaking lad moving to Germany. Probably expected that he would take a while to adapt. I think the important thing is how hard he works in training. Reckon he is worth a shout to be honest.

10.) 20 Jul 2017 01:41:57
Grujic looked promising again today. You would fear for him if Keita is signed though.

Hendo-Can-Coutinho-Grujic-Wijnaldum-Lallana. We've Six excellent midfielders for 3 positions already plus Milner and Ejaria if required.

Cant get my head round Keita really

Maybe Phils said he's off next year and Keita is coming in early as his replacement.

11.) 20 Jul 2017 05:18:22
Renato Sanches is a big risk for a player who has under performed, not settled and could easily have the same problems in the UK.

Agree with Xabi though the amount of midfielders we already have is quite high, it seems strange that another midfielder has been made the priority. The only way it makes sense is if a couple are already earmarked to be leaving.

12.) 20 Jul 2017 05:23:17
And Woodburn, xabi14. he's looked great playing deeper!

13.) 20 Jul 2017 06:42:44
Hendo or Can at base of midfield, Gini or Grujic (or Can/ Hendo) as box to box midfielders and Coutinho or Llalana as attacking mids. can understand if Keita is as good as everyone says why we go for him as you don't pass up top top players, but if he isn't then why go for someone else? We ideally need a FB and CB backup but aside from those two positions I think the squad is in pretty good shape and we don't need anyone that won't immediately improve the first team.

14.) 20 Jul 2017 09:09:20
Haven't we just signed someone who failed at a club when young and then excelled later on.

He was tremendous for Portugal at the euros.

15.) 20 Jul 2017 09:13:12
Hansens scar hit the nail on the head.

16.) 20 Jul 2017 09:20:29
Grujic is an attacking midfielder who should replace Lallana by next year! Keita is a CM. People are just throwing names. You can't compare two different players.

17.) 20 Jul 2017 09:47:47
Coutinho didn't pull up any trees at Inter did he? Now look at him.

18.) 20 Jul 2017 11:10:13
I don't see grujic replacing lallana next year. Lallana was one of best players in the league last season. For the first few months, perhaps the best player. Looking forward to seeing more of grujic but don't see him as a replacement for lallana in the near future.

19.) 20 Jul 2017 11:26:50
I don't think Can will stay around. I think if Juve come in for him he will go.

20.) 20 Jul 2017 11:56:05
you are wrong Joes. The guy can play every aspects of our midfield.

21.) 20 Jul 2017 12:06:33
I fear you are right red fred. And with Lucas gone our once packed midfield options is starting to look rather threadbare. If we miss out on kieta who could still force a move then we still need to pick someone up to replace lucas and perhaps can. I don't think we have seen the best of can yet. He is still a youngster, he really could become one of best cms in world. We should fight to keep him.

22.) 20 Jul 2017 12:10:13
Whilst we have 6 midfielders competing for 3 positions, can we really say that those 6 will compete with each other theme course of the season? Coutinho, Hendo, lallana and Gini you would expect are well experienced enough, physically and mentally capable to stay the course. Can maybe too as he enters into his mid-20s. But grujic is a Massive question mark and is more likely imo to be at risk of fading as the season progresses. There was a good reason the eds were saying he needed more nurturing away from the prem, and a lot of is to mentally prepare for these rigours of a full PL season. He should be a bit-part player contributing in cups and cameos off the bench. Unless injuries or the birth of a start. He is not part of the core rotation. Woodburn is the same.

23.) 20 Jul 2017 12:41:27
Two things.
1. Bayern tried to sell him earlier and had a asking price of €34 mio back in May and lowered it to €28mio.
2. Bayern made clear that Sanches will stay at the club (Hoehness said that about 2-3 weeks ago)

24.) 20 Jul 2017 12:54:41
Will say that I'm impressed with Grujic's aggression. He's got a nasty streak to go with his skill.

25.) 20 Jul 2017 13:11:14
Coutinho was always professional and tried his best. It was just that they didn't fancy him at Inter. Renato Sanches just hasn't tried and thinks he's made it, the two situations are not compareable.

26.) 20 Jul 2017 13:29:56
He's like the midfield Balotelli. No thanks.

27.) 20 Jul 2017 13:40:39
It lucas gone we need someone who can do a similar job. Or a least has a defensive side. Finding players really capable of competing with our lot is going to cost. Some one mentioned kieta is a replacement for coutinio who might fancy a move next near. I hope that's not true but seems feasible. Both in the same side is scary and I don't think Phil does wanna go. Not all players are the same. Cout's kids are scourers remember. I can see him spending his whole career with us.

28.) 20 Jul 2017 13:37:06
Grujic is an attacking midfielder and is far far away from playing deeper. So the idea of him partnering Hendo is out of the paper! He is like a Barkley or Sigurdson who could be very handy in the final third!
There is only player he displaces and that it Lallana! Lallana is not getting any younger!

29.) 20 Jul 2017 16:52:11
Grujic is nowhere near ready to replace Lallana.

30.) 20 Jul 2017 17:18:10
Can will leave, therefore we require more midfielders.

Stewart and Lucas leaving back this up.

31.) 20 Jul 2017 18:10:12
If any of the EDDS r around,
I know patience is a virtue, but somewhere along the line we need to say enough is enough if the KEITA deal is not happening, so EDDS I'd be interested to know if we've shown any interest in JEAN MICHAEL SERI of NICE, an absolute clone of KEIITA, pacy scores, puts his foot in, tremendous passing range, and we'd probably get him for a decent price, we could do worse than him, any views EDDS.

{Ed002's Note - No, he is of no interest to Liverpool although four sides are all trying to buy the player - Lucien Favre says he is not for sale.}

32.) 20 Jul 2017 19:58:23
I just hope Grujic gets some games this season and won't become another waste of money who will sell on as never got a chance?

For me though, even if he doesn't like a more defensive role, he would be a great stopper mid park. i see him as a central player who plays similar to viera (though not that good yet)

Great! Mane facing a spell out on the sidelines due to a hamstring injury. Don't you just love internationals.

1.) 10 Oct 2017 16:12:27

2.) 10 Oct 2017 16:13:16
Sucks yes, but this means the back ups have a chance to prove themselves Ox needs to make a statement now and run United ragged.

3.) 10 Oct 2017 16:42:53
Just great! Well as Kloppers said, time for the back ups to step up. Time for Klopp to coach them up.

4.) 10 Oct 2017 20:37:08
Oxlade isn’t capable of running them ragged, he’s a very ordinary player that we’ve over paid for.

5.) 10 Oct 2017 20:42:52
Gutted about mane but they don't have pogba so.

I ghink klopp ix still working on AOC. He look well different, much thinner, which will make him even faster. He needs a good performance to lift his confidence, he has two paths in front of him, one is the path to glory and high stasis, the other is the road to Stoke City.



28 Sep 2017 14:35:34
So looks like Ancelotti has got the boot, brace yourself for all the speculation to stampede the press.

1.) 28 Sep 2017 15:06:50
The press will milk it, especially the Daily Fail that always seems to want players and managers out of the Anfield door ASAP. Cannot see Klopp leaving mid season but at some point Bayern will make their move for him.



27 Sep 2017 20:16:50
United showing us how it's done in Russia. Clinical and ruthless. Really think we need that out and out striker firing on all cylinders to sweep away all those chances we create. Firmino is a top player on his day who creates space but far too inconsistent and not a natural striker/ finisher.

{Ed025's Note - your right mate..

1.) 27 Sep 2017 21:01:43
Be careful saying that on here or you'll be shouted down like I was on here last week.

I was told Firmino is a natural striker and has played there his whole career and that Sturridge was in fact world class, we have Ings to come back (I like him but you cannot rely on a player who has been injured for 2 years - see Sturridge again) and we have Solanke who will be a good player, but we need it now.

I suggested all summer we should have gone for Javier Hernandez who United were crazy to sell in my opinion.
There were people even saying Firmino was a better striker than Ian Rush, dear oh dear oh dear!

Then people said Salah and Mane more or less play as our main Strikers - I have news for you, they're not natural strikers either.
I have watched Liverpool for 30 years and have seen many a great Striker for us and against us, these guys we have now are very good, but I'm telling you, they are not Strikers.

2.) 27 Sep 2017 21:40:54
But were you not happy with the result Olrish from your reactions yesterday and today 😄😄😄!

3.) 27 Sep 2017 22:55:39
Couldn't agree more OIrish Kev 1. Somebody speaks some sense finally. As has ed25, he said in the summer we needed an out and out striker, a reliable goalscorer, we did bugger all about it and now we are suffering for it. As well as the defence of course.

Javier Hernandez - a good shout, wouldn't be my number one choice but he'd of been better then what we have.

I'm fedup of the same old story, buy now. for the future, yeah and half of them end up flops, we need reliable well known good players, Keita is one of them. Salah how many people knew of the lad? we got lucky, he was a great buy in my opinion. Jan/ Summer we need to prioritise sorting the defence and a goal scoring striker and maybe even a new keeper time will tell on that one.

Sturridge needs to go unless he start's banging them in left right and center which i just can't imagine happening. It will be interesting to see how Origi does this season whilst away, I think him and Solanke will really step up but like you say, we need something special now.

4.) 27 Sep 2017 23:11:08
Haha I posted something similar last week and got shot down for it.

5.) 28 Sep 2017 01:12:42
Nah WCD, I have always said we need an out and out Striker.
It's as obvious to me as us needing a couple of defenders.

How many would Fowler have scored in his prime Tuesday night?!
Definitely would have scored the volley Sturridge blazed over and I'd suggest he'd have scored the Salah headed chance near the end.

When you think of it and listen to us experts, it seems we need half a new team:
A Keeper, 2 Defenders, a Midfielder and a Striker.

I think JK has a bit of work to do in the next two windows! 😂😆😎.

6.) 28 Sep 2017 06:11:00
Olrish, 5 more players over what we have already bought this summer? Lol!

7.) 28 Sep 2017 07:23:18
I am thinking we may need a goals scoring striker after all. Firmino is never going to score on a consistent basis, Sturridge will probably be sold next summer and Solanke is still 2-3 seasons away from being a first team regular. A short term fix makes sense to me. Chicharito would have been a good solution. We would have needed to alter our shape a little, but at least there was a player who knew where the back of the net is.

8.) 28 Sep 2017 12:42:40
Well Ward might well be the solution in goal if ever given his chance.
So technically 4 players in two transfer windows is not a huge ask.
If Can stays which is unlikely, it would mean needing just 3 possibly.
All speculative right now.

I can't see Sturridge with us next season either, unless he goes on a sudden goal scoring spurt until May but who knows?!



23 Sep 2017 17:55:02
Unreal from Coutinho.



11 Sep 2017 06:59:18
Wow that Sevilla game couldn't come quicker, dunno about you lads but I need to get that City loss out of the system. Nothing worse than turning up to work on a cold Monday morning full of United and Chelsea fans going over the result lol.

1.) 11 Sep 2017 08:05:09
They need to be quiet cos Utd got smashed 6-1 after a red card at OT by City while Chelsea had 3 (could have been 5) put past them at home by BURNLEY of all people, this season at the Shed after a red card too.

2.) 11 Sep 2017 16:54:46
Hi Bingo Red, don't forget liverpool versus everton, gerrard got sent off we were 1-0 down and won 3-1. Neville og garcia and Kewell.

3.) 11 Sep 2017 18:26:41
007, Everton are perennial bottlers and they proved it in 2005 vs us as well as in 2017 when they were a man up and a goal up and still bottled it vs City this season and nearly lost the game and were lucky to get a point in the end. Ed25 is still livid about it and he is a Bluenose. Again, context matters. Class dismissed.

Hailstones, he'd be leaving Arsenal for a starting position so it's pointless him moving to us if he's an option off the bench or cover for Mane/ salah.

We'd be foolish to let Ward go out on loan again and even more foolish to not give the lad game time. We've been crying out for a goalkeeper for number of years now and we've had one on the books the whole time in Ward!

{Ed002's Note - Huddersfiel don't need him now.}

Reina, Hyppia, Alonso, Gerrard and Torres was the last time we had a real strong spine to the team. Never replaced that spine since and no wonder why success went downhill from those days.

Can see us coming out the traps very quickly in this one, if we can take the chances I feel this will be a comfortable win. Big test for United also as their finally facing tough opposition.
