Have we any interest in Salif Sane from Hannover. Been watching a bit more Bundesliga this year and he seems excellent. Currently has the third highest rating in the Bundesliga.

He’s a big strong Senegalese CB, wins lots of aerial battles and has 6 MOTM this season. Older than some we have been linked to but looks excellent.


{Ed001's Note - not heard of any interest from us in him.}

So after two very poor performances will Klopp swing the axe and shake things up?
Karius has to come back, Gomez must replace TAA and either Klavan or Lovren for the inept Matip.
I read last night ome great posts on playing Hendo and Ox as the two, Mane and Salah on the wings which I think is a great shout. Can and Wini have had enough chances and if nothing else dropping them in a World Cup year might put a well deserved rocket up their backsides.
Another great shout on one of the pages was Ings up top who is a terrier and deserves a chance and a Firminho playing in a free role.
It’s Huddersfield next so we’re not expecting all out attack against us. Klopp needs to start shaking things up and showing players that abject performances will not be tolerated. A few games in the bench for Can and Wini might just change their attitudes, hopefully for the better.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 10:16:41
Dropping gini won't perk him up for the world cup as he's watching from his couch anyway. TAA I think would be worth playing tonight as he's better going forward than gomez. Is tonight a chance to play gomez CB with VVD? Klopps stated tactics were to blame against Swansea so expect a formation change, I doubt a 442 or 4411 but possibly 3 at the back or 4132. On the transfer front, no more in this window, shame we didn't challenge for PEA. I'm the summer, a gk, cdm and a striker to replace studge and probably ings departures.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 10:16:58
The problem is this. Bringing Henderson back in is probably sensible, now that he is over his latest injury, but then who if you drop both Can and Wijnaldum, it means almost certainly that James Milner will play in centre midfield and he is a liability at the best of times in that position.

3.) 30 Jan 2018 10:19:13
I'd go Klavan, solid, unspectacular and until he was dropped, had cut out making silly mistakes. Never thought I would say that but there you go.

4.) 30 Jan 2018 10:33:57
Mr Dennis. reread the original post. he clearly states both hendo and the Ox in midfield to replace Gini and can and a switch to 442 risk formation. Milner wouldn't need to start

5.) 30 Jan 2018 11:08:47
Klopp isn't going to go 442, he isn't Roy Hodgson.

{Ed001's Note - he has gone 4-4-2 quite a few times.}

6.) 30 Jan 2018 11:13:27
Shake things up?!

With what?!

Have you seen our bench?

7.) 30 Jan 2018 11:52:26
Mr Dennis, as ED001 has alluded to Klopp has already tried this formation a few times this season, and with Keita arriving in the summer you should expect it to happen more often! 442 isn't a bad way of setting up a modern team, ask athletico Madrid and Leicester city. rather than assuming only a dinasuar like Roy Hodson would use it 😉.

8.) 30 Jan 2018 13:01:39
Formations don't win matches . Players do.
Good players
Clever players
Hungry players
Find a way to win
Do we have them?
Not sure.

9.) 30 Jan 2018 13:03:46
The difference is this, the title winning Leicester side had and current Atletico side have the players to be able sit back and soak up pressure when needed as both played on the counter and soaked up pressure, we lack any players that have that ability. Not one of our midfielders are at the level of Kante (who was so good that the team felt like it was having two players instead of one and he even made Drinkwater look like a footballer) or Niguez and Koke. Not one of our midfielders are as good as those players or ever will be, name me one midfielder that we have that even comes close? It is like entering an Austin Maestro into a grand prix and hoping to win.

{Ed001's Note - would it be the MG version of the Maestro though?}

10.) 30 Jan 2018 14:56:22
Shake things up in Kevin Murphy's box of rice (musical instrument) obviously mate :)

11.) 30 Jan 2018 15:25:37
For me the 4-3-3 is the best formation for us.

The issue for me is the lack of creativity and protection offered from our midfield 3. Hendo on his day can offer both of these things but since his string of injuries has failed to show his true ability.

Coutinho obviously offered the creativity to feed clever balls to the front 3 in tight spaces. This has been our main issue in the last 2 games against teams who are happy to sit and defend. We have had a huge percentage of the possession but it has all been slow and sideways.

In terms of protection I can't remember the last time that we had a quality DM who would sit there and help out the defence. Can and Wijnaldum have both had a go without much success. I don't know the number of goals that have resulted from Can giving the ball away in bad positions but from memory there have been several.

Keita will be a huge bonus when he joins but for me we will still need a 3rd quality central midfielder to play alongside Hendo (if he can prove himself fit and refind his form) and Keita.

If we can get in a top quality CM and a top quality GK for next season I would be a happy man.

12.) 30 Jan 2018 15:33:17
Hahaha Ed001 my mate had an mg maestro turbo not so long ago, was a bit of a state though.

{Ed001's Note - had it won any grands prix?}

13.) 30 Jan 2018 16:52:42
I think you’re spelling prix wrong Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - ah could be mate.}

14.) 30 Jan 2018 18:26:04
I think against the teams who sit deep and we struggle to break down I would like to see him swap Salah and Mane on the wings (I know they're preferred is to cut in) but having them on the wing and they're favoured foot on the outside will stop having them need to cut in where its always jam packed, I think this would solve a load of problems breaking these teams down - what's everyones thoughts.

15.) 30 Jan 2018 20:43:48
Cialb - I like how you are trying to think outside the box. Personally I think that would leave Firmino isolated in the middle and would also clog up the space our fullbacks would be running into. I suppose the fullbacks could move centrally in attack much like Lahm did at Bayern but Im not sure we have the players for that. TAA maybe but our left side I doubt.

16.) 31 Jan 2018 07:46:44
No Ed001 it didn’t win any Grand Prix, although it may have stood a chance after After god had spent years corroding the body away in an attempt to make it lighter and more competitive on the track.

{Ed001's Note - they were obviously designed for racing lightness being so easily corroded. I think the design team must have used rust to get round homologation issues and road legality.}



12 Nov 2017 10:49:19
Papers now claiming Can heading to City in the summer.


1.) 12 Nov 2017 11:51:56
'papers' says it all mate.

2.) 12 Nov 2017 12:02:27
And Sky Sports as well.

3.) 12 Nov 2017 13:39:11
Please Pep.
take him now.


4.) 12 Nov 2017 16:39:24
Then he should be dropped to the reserves for the rest of the season as his heart isn’t in it.

5.) 12 Nov 2017 17:27:19
Good shout Mr Dennis, can’t wait for Naby to join next season after a year in Liepzig’s reserves.

6.) 12 Nov 2017 20:05:21
I thought players can't agree anything pre contract wise from the same league or country.

7.) 12 Nov 2017 21:07:33
let him go nobody bigger than the club.

8.) 12 Nov 2017 21:40:22
As far as I’m concerned Can has made a decision that he doesn’t see his future at Liverpool. He sees it at Man City, which is fine. But since he has been a liability at times this season, his place would be better taken by Grujic who will be here next season. Can should be a bench warmer at best.

9.) 12 Nov 2017 22:11:29
I can't see him going to city, if he's worried about a long term starting spot then they would be a disaster for him. I can't see anything other than a free transfer to Juve in the summer.

10.) 13 Nov 2017 00:54:04
Amazing how people just believe whatever the papers say and launch into a player without any confirmation, even though these reports constantly get shown as rubbish.

11.) 13 Nov 2017 12:17:08
Hahaha he won't start at Man City. Gundogan doesn't start and only makes the old cameo how the hell will Can see the field behind him, Fernandinho, Yaya even!

{Ed002's Note - Gundogan ruptured his Cruciate Ligament keeping him pout for 9 months.}

12.) 13 Nov 2017 13:40:02
Damn fair enough Ed! I'd just rather see Can move abroad.

{Ed002's Note - Once he has left Liverpool it should be unimportant to you.}

13.) 13 Nov 2017 14:06:00
Tell that to Chelsea fans re Nemanja Matić.

14.) 13 Nov 2017 14:06:46
Of course.

15.) 13 Nov 2017 22:57:08
If Can's "heart isn't in it" he certainly has a funny way of showing that when he puts the shirt on. maybe he should take a lesson from Coutinho about how to perform when your heart isn't in it.

16.) 14 Nov 2017 12:35:16
Faithinworks that is why I don’t get the abuse. He is still putting in a shift, might not always be a good one but by all accounts the situation is one of he wants to be playing and the recruitment policy suggests to him that he won’t be a regular next season. Nowhere near the situation of Coutinho s amazing success in ruining his standing with the fans.



25 Oct 2017 20:52:07
Ed001, do think Klopp will actually make big changes in defense and in goal at weekend as is being discussed in the papers? Or have you heard any whispers that he’s willing to try other options?


{Ed001's Note - I expect him to, he was furious at the weekend. The only worry is that he might calm down and pull back from making those big changes once he has had time to think about it. Certainly his initial plan was to change things, however I wouldn't hold my breath as people often change their mind. I remember one club owner said straight after a match that he was going to sack the manager in the morning. He calmed down over night and changed his mind, leaving me looking an arse as I said the manager would be gone the next day.}

1.) 25 Oct 2017 22:04:33
Yes sometimes a cooling down period is not a good idea.

2.) 26 Oct 2017 06:21:52
I'm a big fan of Klopp and his personality is infectious but I agree that he is not beyond crtitcism and I think this weekends selection could be the making or breaking of him. If he makes the decisions everyone knows are correct and we don't get the result then it's going to go down a lot better with fans than if he allows the continued errors of his ways cloud his judgement with formation, team selection and the way we play.

3.) 26 Oct 2017 15:06:48
Surely the result is more important than the team selection, no one will care about the team selected if we win 5-0, regardless of who plays. However if he picks the same team and we don’t get a result then questions will be asked.

4.) 26 Oct 2017 16:16:47
It really is time for Klopp to decide who remains in employment by Liverpool - himself or Mignolet and Lovren. If he keeps picking them then he will get the sack and any new manager will probably get rid of them anyway. Loyalty does not exist in football.

5.) 27 Oct 2017 23:07:58
Klopp came out today and said Mignolet starts tomorrow. I can't get my head around it at all.



23 Oct 2017 04:25:06
So does anyone actually know why Klopp persists with Migs? Are Ward and Karius so bad in training or what is the reason?

This is a 100% genuine question, Ed01 have you heard anything mate?


{Ed001's Note - I honestly do not know the answer to this, it surprises me as everything that I have heard says that he wants to sell him. Ward and Karius were meant to be fighting it out for the no 1 spot. I know both of them are unhappy and have spoken to Klopp about that, but there is nothing else that is stopping them getting the jersey. Both have impressed in training from what I have been told. This is one thing I just do not understand. It is confusing to say the least. Klopp surely can't think the fans will just jump on either's back after 2 games like they did last season and call for Mignolet's return now can he? Mind the knee jerk reactionary tools who did that last season have such short memories, they will no doubt be dragging out nonsense like 'Migs is a good shotstopper' the minute either keeper doesn't make an impossible save!}

1.) 23 Oct 2017 08:47:52
He has too give ward a proper chance mignolet has proved he is a flapper and not up too it, we already have let our best defender leave in sakho, for all we know ward could b a quality keeper for us we don't want him leaving as well.

2.) 23 Oct 2017 10:20:54
The problem is Mignolet is so bad in every aspect of goalkeeping so i don't see what he can possibly see in him.
Klopp persisted with a very average GK in Dortmund for many years as well in Weindefeller who i though was not a good Goalkeeper, its worrying and if Karius or Ward doesn't start vs Huddersfield then i think Klopp has lost the plot. Mignolet should have been dropped for ever after the horrible game he had vs Leicester despite us winning after he saved a penalty he himself gave away with ridiculous goalkeeping. Starting Mignolet or Lovren anytime soon will just tell the rest of the squad it doesn't matter what they do because the favorites will always be picked.

3.) 23 Oct 2017 10:23:46
Your not telling me Ward wouldn't be up for it against Huddersfield, perfect game for him to start, he should be given the chance now until the end of the season then it can be decided who is to go, Gomez looked like the senior cb yesterday too and Matip looked lost as usual, he should stay there too, it was good to finally see Klopp coming out and saying things against his defenders, lacking a leader and organisation, January will be a big month.

4.) 24 Oct 2017 13:26:34
Like I said before (just my opinion), I think the problem stems from within the club. How can two totally different managers (BR) make the exact same mistakes? Does that not strike anyone as odd?

5.) 25 Oct 2017 07:13:50
Migs has had his chance.
Give karius a run of games not 1 here and there. If after 6 games or so there is no improvement throw ward in there for a spell. Simple.

So Klopp has said it was a no brainer to sign Shaq, welcome to the club son, hope you have a great career with LFC.


1.) 13 Jul 2018 21:48:38
Hopefully he can indeed work his magic and get the best out of the lad. As he’s here I’ll support him.

2.) 13 Jul 2018 23:04:06
There is absolutely no down side except for breaking his leg.

He flops we sell for 20 mil easy money next year.

He's a success and for what he cost, how high is that bar? 8 and 8?

3.) 14 Jul 2018 00:11:33
Kloppsboss, how if he is a flop will we be able to sell him for £20 million next year easily? wouldn't he go for less than what we paid if he is a flop?

4.) 14 Jul 2018 10:07:21
No Salah. Captain negative.

People buy for hope.

If he flops it won't be because he doesn't necessary play bad just he doesn't get in the team.

Other teams always buy bigger teams flops it's like mother nature.

West ham will come knocking with a 20 million pound bid and will count themselves fortunate.

He's a 27 international who is a goodpkayer just maybe not good enough for liverpool, doesn't mean he couldn't rock it at everton or someone of smaller Ilk.

Every manager has preferences and believes that they will be the one to figure said player out.

5.) 14 Jul 2018 12:59:11
Lol my word, yeah alright Kloppsboss, I'll leave you to believe what you want to believe mate.

One minute you're singing his praises the next he 'maybe not good enough for Liverpool' I can't keep up with you.

6.) 14 Jul 2018 15:24:10
I said even if he flops which I don't believe he will, we can still sell and make some money. Basically it's a no loss situation.



11 Jul 2018 21:17:47

Gutted, but proud of the way they played. The future is bright.

5.) 11 Jul 2018 21:43:59
I'm pretty sure I seen some poster saying Lovren was going to get tore apart by Kane and Co. In reality both these teams will be beat by France. They were th fortunate to get the "good" side of the draw.

6.) 11 Jul 2018 21:46:12

10.) 11 Jul 2018 22:30:37
Congratulations to Croatia!
In my opinion they were the better team over the 120 min. They were brave, stuck to their style of play. England was all over the place. It seemed they lacked a clear-cut strategy.
The game was so open but the absolute lack of creativity from English side didn't help.
Credit to the England side they made it to the semi-finals. But many may agree that they were not playing as good as the results.
Let's face it! we were never tested till now. Our victory against Tunisia and Panama was so much hyped that loss against Belgium was called a 'masterstroke' by Southgate.
Kane was called as the Best 'centre-forward in the world and he missed to easy chances could have passed it to Sterling 1st time. EoTK called Henderson the best midfielder in the world. Come on! let's be realistic we had two good results against two poor sides and the media put everybody over the moon! Henderson was Awful tonight.
Croatia after coming from two back-to-back extra times played their hearts out.

I'm upset with the result. Had we had maintained our focus and taken our chances, we'd have won the game in the 1st half itself.

11.) 11 Jul 2018 22:32:02
Henderson was Awful tbf. Couldn't deliver when it mattered the most.

12.) 11 Jul 2018 23:19:18
Spot on, The Red Kop. Hendo did not have his best game today BUT trust me, there were way worse than him playing tonight in the likes of Stones, Alli and the gawd awful Sterling and the hapless Walker at the back. As for Croatia, they were the better team and bossed England all over the pitch in the second half. England had always had a lack of creativity in this WC BUT got thru by playing lame opposition or playing teams that did not have the creative, attacking approach allied with defensive rigidity and organization that Croatia had.

Also, those other teams did not have a Luka Modric, bossing the game creatively in midfield and it showed. One shot on target in open play is diabolical and you should not be winning a WC semi final with such a pathetic stat. England did not and that is the way it should be. Croatia deserved it, completely.



11 Jul 2018 14:47:51
Question, has Migs played a match with the settled back four of VVD, Lovren, Robertson and TAA?


1.) 11 Jul 2018 14:53:52
He played with Virgil against West Brom when they spanked us 3-2 at Anfield, and had 2 other goals disallowed. I think the defence that day was Gomez, Matip, Virgil and Moreno. I could have it wrong though.

2.) 11 Jul 2018 14:54:06
Nope and he never will lol.

3.) 11 Jul 2018 14:55:56
Mmmm. No, because that would make it an unsettled back four?

Damn kloppsboss there is no need to shout ;_;

6.) 11 Jul 2018 16:37:23
Good grief, Kloppsboss. MY EARS ARE RINGING! Chill out, man. I agree with you, tho shouting aside. Migs played in the WBA game in the FA Cup and was useless there AGAIN, Had it not been for VAR, he would have been responsible for 2 of the 5 goals. After and a half FULL seasons of being unchallenged, Migs is a lost cause and we need to move on.

7.) 11 Jul 2018 16:41:46
There is dude. It took 4 years to get him out our net! I'm not having him back.

8.) 11 Jul 2018 17:34:21
It's a nice idea but it's clutching at straws. Migs wasn't just bad because of a shaky defence. I don't remember the last time he made a save that want just routine.

Whoever said "it's taken 4 years to get him out" was bang on the money.

I would sign two gks and sell 2 goal keepers.

9.) 11 Jul 2018 18:07:58
Prince, the guy punched a routine Xhaka shpt into his own net last season at the Emirates. Nuff said!

10.) 11 Jul 2018 20:22:42
So all the great LFC supporters who spout YNWA for Karius don't feel it's also applicable to Migs?



11 Jul 2018 09:10:08
Must be tough viewing for Ward, first watching Migs do his thing now Karius starting to show some poor form.
Though maybe he's not impressing Klopp in trading, Ed any feedback from your sources on how Ward performs in training or does his fave just not fit with Klopp?


{Ed001's Note - then he needs to stand out in training and start staying behind to practice etc. He is not doing enough to push himself in front.}

1.) 11 Jul 2018 11:45:11
That's a pity, with all that has gone on with our keepers and is now going on one would think if Ward had shown more drive and ambition then this would be his chance.



06 Jul 2018 16:50:56
As we have shown lots of interest in Fekir quick question for the eternal football followers out there.
I see he doesn’t start for France, not following France or the World Cup very much myself but is he carrying a slight injury or just not good enough to start? Who currently starts in his position for France.
Thank you in advance for your answers.


{Ed002's Note - Griezmann.}

1.) 06 Jul 2018 17:04:14
Easy solution buy Greizman. Oh forgot he’s just gone a Romaric undying love film!

2.) 06 Jul 2018 17:06:42
Cheers Ed, that’s a tough ask ok to oust Greizman.

3.) 06 Jul 2018 17:54:45
He always gets a game though. I mean he is nearly always brought on so he is pretty good.

Does any of our opinions or the Eds opinions matter, if Klopp wants him then he sees something, isn't that all there is to it. Klopp doesn't care if you think he's lazy or someone else thinks he has a bad attitude or if Ed thinks there's better in the academy or elsewhere, it's the managers choice. I'm all for opinion but don't be absolutely hammering a player because he's being linked with us. Mane had issues pre_Liverpool, Keita has had his fair share too, let's see what happens and who knows, he might win golden boot out of nowhere next season.

Ed01, do you think other premier teams will have a better go at City this season. So many seemed resigned to lose last season and made little to no effort against them. I think we will score more points this season but to be closer we need other teams to try against City.


{Ed001's Note - I would hope so, they must have seen how City struggled when teams attacked them and drawn the sensible conclusion.}
