So according to James Pearce that's it for this transfer window. No centre back coming in is not good enough in my opinion. It's great having lot's of attacking talent but if you can't stop it going in the other end you can forget about it.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 17:41:41
But if the player Klopp wants is not achievable then no need to panic buy.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 17:42:05
Didnt he say it was unlikely rather then not happening.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 17:52:23
Absolutely right, I mean surely we should just keep Sakho?

4.) 31 Aug 2017 17:49:13
He said it was unlikely as it stands.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 17:53:38
If he had accepted that his actions meant the transfer was a no-go 2 months ago when it became apparent, we wouldn't be panic buying - we'd just be buying.

6.) 31 Aug 2017 17:55:09
That's Pierce and Beakcroft now, think it's time to accept we wi not be doing anymore business.

7.) 31 Aug 2017 17:56:08
I believe James Pearce said is 'unlikely' not 'that's it'. is the Echo your prime source of knowledge, i wouldn't even trust their tv listings! :)

8.) 31 Aug 2017 17:59:36
I understand why the VVD deal is a difficult one but surely we know how much Monaco want for Lemar, if we're fed up with Coutinho and Lemar is seen as the replacement then just pay the money. Can't help but think Ox was the only one ever going to happen and they're saying, o well we tried for Lemar just to appease the fans.

9.) 31 Aug 2017 18:04:20
With the attacking power we have the opposition will never get the ball so the defence will be sound.

10.) 31 Aug 2017 18:04:30
Pearce is making an assumption. Only those doing the transactions know and that's why people like Macca haven't uttured anything else. If FSG say yes to 92M Lemar will come and very possible Coutinho will go.
Southampton could easily get cold feet and sell too. There is still a few hours more insanity to go yet.

11.) 31 Aug 2017 18:16:37
It's not over till its over. Apart from a defender we've done quite well.

12.) 31 Aug 2017 18:38:58
At some point this season we will have to rely on Klavan and Lovren as a partnership and if that thought isn't scary, I don't know what is. Fail to prepare is failure to prepare.

13.) 31 Aug 2017 18:48:10
" Didn't Panic Buy " Klopp has had enough time since the club apologized to Southampton not to panic buy!

14.) 31 Aug 2017 18:57:42
Fail to prepare is preparing to fail I think is what you mean. Is it not also true sakho is on his way out for 26 million to palace since mangala deal fell through. Not acceptable for a club like Liverpool. No CB is just a disaster.

15.) 31 Aug 2017 19:08:07
Not too bothered, really cos no defender will fix all our defensive issues so we move on.

16.) 31 Aug 2017 19:27:17
Some people have a funny definition of disaster! Jeez, the team we have have qualified for ucl and got 2nd in league (dunno if we're still there) we have kept clean sheets this season and defended well except for watford game. If we keep coutinio then we really don't need lemar. We have bought really well this summer. Our team is geared up to attack and that is where we have reinforced. Vvd would be great and until it's over (tw) it's not over. We will be fine Without him but stronger with. If I had to choose between vvd or coutinio I would choose pc and if we're not going to break for Barcelona then why should Southampton break for us.

17.) 31 Aug 2017 19:46:43
Superred91 no team has ever won the premier league without a solid defence and a solid midfield unit. We have neither, simply hoping to outscore opponents is naive at the very best.

Appealing the Mane red card is pointless IMO, it's only going to conclude with Mane getting banned for extra games. Whoever make's these decisions must be smoking what they were at the Emirates a few years ago.


{Ed025's Note - i agree MM, foolish to the extreme mate..

1.) 11 Sep 2017 17:51:27
There are some dumb heads in the club who thinks same as some posters here! Ritchie got away with it why not Mane then?

2.) 11 Sep 2017 18:06:54
If the appeal is unsuccessful and it is 4 game ban, who will the fourth game be against.

3.) 11 Sep 2017 18:09:15
Dumbest idea, ever.



09 Sep 2017 21:27:16
A brother sent me a section of an article he read earlier I think it sum's things up perfectly. " There was no fight, no desire and no will to give it a go and as a dedicated Liverpool fan it was torture to watch the last 35 minutes of that game. Never before have I seen such a blatant case of surrender when it comes to Liverpool. Where was the passion, Where was the anger, Where was the pride, Where was that " We are Liverpool ". From what I seen today we were nowhere to be found and we were lost in Manchester. The blame has to lie somewhere and in my opinion it was Jurgen Klopp that created the 5 - 0 headline. With a bit of umph and gumption, we might have crawled back into that game today and grabbed a goal or two to get a result. We still might have lost 2-0 or 2-1 but to do nothing led to a 5-0 hammering that will strain the memories for quite a while. Maybe it's totally wrong and out of order, but the reaction of the team and the manager after red card, made us out to be a one man team. If we are going to depend on one player well then we are in trouble for the rest of the season.


1.) 09 Sep 2017 22:00:50
AN 😞.

2.) 09 Sep 2017 22:11:51
Look I hated watching that 2nd half, and I don't deny that I wanted to see a lot more fight. I would have been okay going down to 9 if we had shown some fight.

But I think we all need to settle down. Two down and down to ten the game was over. And I think the team were probably very flat after what happened. But whatever way you look at it, I kinda think that Juergen started looking at Wednesday from half time. He gave up the game as gone, probably rightly, and brought off Salah, and then Giji and Roberto probably to rest them ahead of Wednesday. As fans we probably hate it, because we want the team to fight and fight for each game, but I figure Juergen has to look st things a lot more coldly than we do, and he knew the race was run and he had to look ahead to Sevilla!

So I hated that second half, but dispassionately Juergen probably made the right call from a coldly practical viewpoint whether we as fans like it or not!

Bad day at the office, but let's take the roof of on Wednesday night!



02 Sep 2017 13:29:12
Firstly I want to say Well done to the Ed's for a great job during the transfer window. Secondly I would like to say well done to the Liverpool transfer committee for not letting Coutinho go. Thirdly I would like to say well done to all the clubs that stood their ground in transfer dealings and I include Southampton in that. Player power has gotten out of control it's about time it was kerbed.




01 Sep 2017 07:31:53
How unlucky are Liverpool? Only "one" centre back left in the whole of European and world football and we can't bid for him! Very amateurish from the club. Anyway time to move on and see what the January window brings and hopefully everything is not lost by then. As one of the Ed's said we can't go back for VVD in January so hopefully the club have an alternative lined up by then.


1.) 01 Sep 2017 08:22:36
Agree about the CB part. There were lots of decent options available if we stumped up the money, and putting all our eggs into the VVD basket after the tapping up fiasco reeks of amateurism and incompetence on Klopp and Co's part. Koulibaly, Manolas were all gettable for lesser fees and would be instant upgrades on Lovren and Klavan.
Now its important to weather the storm till Jan and make the necessary changes in defense.

2.) 01 Sep 2017 08:25:09
Considering the only big club selling a CB was us maybe there weren't any others for sale. As some of us keep saying City were chasing Evans and got told to do one, hardly spunds like loads of CBs up for sale.

3.) 01 Sep 2017 08:48:22
Maguire, were you living under a rock when Klopp tapped up this "CB" and his club have us by the gonads right now and the owners had to step in to stop the PR bleeding? Ed02 has said repeatedly that Saints won't sell to us and Ed01 said that Saints needs to let us know if we can still bid for him and they did not and said he is not for sale at any price to anyone. You're welcome.

4.) 01 Sep 2017 08:59:41
Indian Buzzer do you know for a fact those players were for sale and the price was less than a player whose price was never agreed - and if so how? Also naming 2 doesn't constitute lots, the word you use in the previous sentence. People need to stop exaggerating about it. I don't know VVD was the best option, I'm half disappointed and half happy the club didn't spend 70, 80 or whatever million to sign him, I remember Ed01 said Koulibaly was a better option. BUT, there is absolutely no guarantee any top CB was available and the game isn't awash with good, experienced and for sale options there. The club will just have to develop the potential talent it paid good money for, Gomez and get something out of the players who were highly rated when signed, Lovren and Matip. And that last bit is important. Both Lovren and Matip were highly rated before signing and when first signed, not world class but highly rated, so if they're no cutting it then anyone with sense will look at other "rated" CBs supposedly better than them and wonder if they will turn out to be less than expected as well. Correct me if I am wrong people but I don't think any top centre backs changed hands during this window - please stop before you type Sakho, he was part of our weak defence when he played, so doesn't count.

{Ed001's Note - Man City couldn't even afford to buy a centre back! The only one that I can remember moving was Bonnucci from Juve to Milan and he was never coming to England.}

5.) 01 Sep 2017 09:28:08
Did you even read my post Bingo Red or did you just see the letters VVD and comment? I am alluding to the fact that we put all our eggs in one basket. Look up the word sarcasm. By the way you're welcome.



31 Aug 2017 21:05:14
Just leave this here 2015 Lovern, Toure, Skrtel, Sakho were the CB's when Klopp took over. 4 transfer windows later our CB's are Lovern, Matip and Klavan!


1.) 31 Aug 2017 21:13:05
I would imagine he is thinking of playing Gomez at cb which is actually his natural positio.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 21:14:42
Yeah it's laughable. Plus we've got the extra games in the champions league.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 21:26:49

4.) 31 Aug 2017 21:27:40
And your point is exactly? Those original four were just as bad as those current players and were responsible for shipping in 50goals.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 21:29:10
Lovren and Matip started 13 games in the premier league last season, how can we go into the season with 3 senior CB's?

6.) 31 Aug 2017 21:46:39
Gomez is a CB but don't let facts get in the way of a good moan.

7.) 31 Aug 2017 21:42:42
What's laughable about it? When those CB's were here, we shipped 50 goals a season. They've all gone and we conceded 42 goals in the PL last season (6th best in the PL) . You may not like what I'm saying but it is the truth.

8.) 31 Aug 2017 22:18:27
Bingo red if Gomez is as good as Lovern, why isn't he playing ahead of him?

9.) 31 Aug 2017 22:19:44
What's laughable is you think 8 goals less is a big difference!

10.) 31 Aug 2017 23:58:15
12 from set pieces.

11.) 01 Sep 2017 21:33:57
Yes, Macguire it is an improvement BUT of course, you disagree which is fine.

All manager's have suffered heavy defeats in their time, Guardiola 4-0 to Everton, Wenger 10-2 on aggregate to Bayern, Mourinho 5-0 to Barcelona, Pochettino 5-1 to Newcastle even Ferguson was on the end of a 6-1 hammering by city. So their is no need to hit the panic button yet but things will have to start improving sooner rather than later.

A bit like certain manager he's blamed everyone from the ballboy, to the ref, to the team doctor to the fans and the opposing manager! He must have Scouse ancestry. 😂.

Time to move on what's done is done. He will miss 3 games, Burnley and Leicester for 2 games (League and league cup) . I don't think the club should appeal it and risk a longer ban. It's time for player's to step up and prove we are not a one man team and in case anyone forgot we have a little Brazilian that is an adequate replacement.

I doubt he would be a starter in a Championship team never mind a Premiership team.

False hope you mean! There are a majority that still fall for it unfortunately.
