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.



21 Jul 2017 17:46:18
Eds, do you think Barcelona would have made the bid without first consulted with Coutinho and/ or his agent?


{Ed002's Note - I have explained before that he club are aware of what Coutinho told three international team mates last season and are also aware that PSG, Barcelona and Bayern Munich have continued to have Coutinho watched. He is also aware of interest from Barcelona and one of the three he has spoken with is a Barcelona player. At the end of October his representative visited Barcelona to make clear that the player is open to a move there during 2017 and this re-enforces the recent comment from an international colleague that Coutinho has got Neymar to speak to Barcelona about him as well. Liverpool will work to avoid selling.}

1.) 21 Jul 2017 21:13:28
Hi Ed002, do you believe that Liverpool have the means to buy both Keita and VVD without selling Coutinho? Or will that be a stretch too far financially?

(avoiding any me too of figures of course)

Cheers in advance.

{Ed002's Note - It is to do with a separate matter - move on from the money.}

2.) 23 Jul 2017 14:08:39
We have spent about 50 so far, kieta and vvd will cost around 130/ 150. Klopp was told he had 200 mil to play with so I guess we are fine without selling phil.



19 Aug 2015 08:37:12
Leverkusen in for Sakho,

I hope we win tomorrow.


1.) 16 Dec 2017 17:05:16
We must win tomorrow.

2.) 16 Dec 2017 17:05:45
Hope so too Mc, but we lost their after winning, so it won't be an easy game, this could be yet another draw, we seem to have gone off the boil,
but a win would lift moral, and up a place or two .

3.) 16 Dec 2017 17:40:58
Can't get up for these games now this season, roll on August. We're rotating players whilst the premier league disappears off into the distance.
We've got the cup and the champions league left this season.

Hope he rests Karius. If he plays and drops another clanger at Bournemouth it could end him.

4.) 16 Dec 2017 19:24:15
Speaking of rotation how much rotation have previous league winners like Chelsea Leicester Utd when they dominated carry out?



15 Dec 2017 12:01:41
Ed, as we are very close to midway through the season is there any chance of a mid term review. How we’ve done so far, comparison to last year, what needs to be improved to get into 2nd or 3rd and maybe a grading or similar for players and manager.
Cheers mate.


{Ed001's Note - I only did one a few weeks back mate, during the last international break, not sure there is enough changed to make it worthwhile, plus the sites are a bit busy with the January window approaching. I am struggling to keep up with match previews at the moment and my parents are coming to stay for Xmas and New Year in a few days. So I will have to say I won't be able to for now sorry. Maybe MKS would like to do something in this regard?}

1.) 15 Dec 2017 13:04:15
I don't mind that Ed001. I'll do one for Christmas Eve McGoveb, if you are interested?

{Ed001's Note - cheers MKS that would be great mate.}

2.) 15 Dec 2017 13:06:43
Do you want me to write something Ed01, unbiased, brutally honest 😄😄😄.

{Ed001's Note - if you were capable of doing unbiased then I would love you to write something. Sadly you are just about the most biased person I have ever known, you only ever see what you want to see.}

3.) 15 Dec 2017 14:10:30

4.) 15 Dec 2017 14:16:23
Ed, my apologies I seem to have missed that review, I’ll start searching to find it, thanks mate. Tough times ahead for you, hope it all runs smoothly. Maybe you can do a Family review for us when they’ve left 😂.

MKs and a Harry, that would be great and very interesting to read your varying reviews of the first half of the season, I for one would be delighted if you could both add your inputs and many thanks for taking the time lads.

{Ed001's Note - I will probably be too busy huddled in a corner, hugging my knees and sobbing uncontrollably by the time they leave for anything else!}

5.) 15 Dec 2017 14:30:32
yes i would totally love to read Mks and Harrys views.
Ron K can you write something for us too, lately i see a totally different Ron and im very curious to know why. feels like you are loosing hope? sorry Ron if i got that wrong.

6.) 15 Dec 2017 14:38:33
No problem Ed. I am not a good writer anyways. My English is not good to write a long essay.

{Ed001's Note - Harry I was kidding mate. You said about unbiased. No one actually expects you to be unbiased, nor would they want to read you try to be, so don't worry. If you do decide to write something, be yourself.}

7.) 15 Dec 2017 14:50:41
I can't get over the derby disappointment crazyhorse.

I've never known us play a weakened team for the derby. It'll take a while for me to get over it.

8.) 15 Dec 2017 15:29:19
half season review: 18pts off first.
review ended.

9.) 15 Dec 2017 16:08:35
Ron, I’ve noticed ok that you really feel let down by that. It’s so strange to see you like this, hopefully we get some good results and you can get back to your upbeat self.

10.) 15 Dec 2017 16:20:23
True armendn, but this is not a normal season to be fair. The Arsenal invincibles had 39 points after 17 games. The Chelsea team which holds record points haul over a season had 40.

In those two seasons we'd be 8 points and 9 points off top spot which is bad, but half of the total gap of this year. Prior to this season, those were the two best teams in an individual premier league season. City are just blowing records apart this year. So whilst we may be 18 points behind them, we are only 7 points off second place Man Utd who in any normal year would probably be the pace setters.

You can't really judge anyone against City this season. They've only drawn one game. We'd have to have won 17/ 17 to be ahead of them! You just have to admire it because they are on course to become the best side in English football history. Would you put it past them winning the treble? I wouldn't.

11.) 15 Dec 2017 17:11:33
I'm quiet optimistic adam, was a bit sarcasm behind my "review".
we have a good team, is our mentality that is lacking us. but that takes time to change. we are turning defeats into draws and some draws into wins.

12.) 15 Dec 2017 18:06:33
Id be chuffed to bits if Harry and mks do a review. I think this needs to be done even to get two contrasting views on our season.
If you get the time guys I'd be grateful.

13.) 15 Dec 2017 18:57:16
Cmon Negative, My review will bring this site down 😄😄. Writing is a skill and I am not good at it mate. I can just post a view. I don’t know why he thinks I am biased. I wish if I was one! I would be right up in the best posters list. I would have had only one username all these years!

{Ed001's Note - I did not say what you are biased towards Harry, I certainly would not say you were biased towards Liverpool or any of its players, unless they are s***ouses who let the club down by trying to force their way out or acting up in other ways. Then you support them rather than the club, which is where your support should lie.}

14.) 15 Dec 2017 23:08:00
I see what you did there, Ed.

15.) 16 Dec 2017 02:25:58
Please don't forget to mention that we have fewer points than this time last year. Also scored fewer goals even with the so called fab 4. In other words, as my old teacher used to tell me. Must do better.

16.) 16 Dec 2017 11:07:41
More no, we can always do better even if we were doing better than last season at the same stage.



10 Dec 2017 13:24:04
I can see plenty of cards brandished today, think Sam will have Everton kick our boys to bits.


1.) 10 Dec 2017 13:28:01
Fat Sam going to Fat Sam, I guess.

I'm really only worried about set pieces. We have an obvious weak link (Migs) and I fully expect Allardyce to put players in his way on corners and then aim the corner right in onto the six yard box.

2.) 10 Dec 2017 13:43:04
Milner in centre midfield is a poor choice.

3.) 10 Dec 2017 14:02:37
Would rather grujic started in midfield than milner to be honest.

{Ed001's Note - he is injured.}

4.) 10 Dec 2017 14:16:45
Maybe not then haha.

5.) 10 Dec 2017 14:34:16
Ed01, what have you heard from your sources about how Grujic is getting on in training and U-23 matches? Will he be fighting for a starting position next season?

{Ed001's Note - well they think he lacks a bit of awareness and positional sense, hence the move to playing him deeper, to allow him to see more of the play and get an idea of what is happening. It really depends on how he gets on this season and how quickly he develops.}



30 Nov 2017 16:26:46
Hi Ed is there a match review for last nights game, did a search and couldn’t find one?


{Ed001's Note - yes mate if you can't see it on here then you can always try football news views as that is where they are posted. The link for yesterday's game is HERE

1.) 30 Nov 2017 17:54:54
Cheers mate, did a search on “match reviews”, it brought everything except last nights one so wasn’t sure if you’d had a chance to complete. Thanks again for the tip and link.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, thought it was the easiest way as you will know for sure if I have forgotten then. I have spent most of the day bouncing around singing "Mo Mo, Mo Mo Mo Mo, Mo Mo Mo Mo, Mo Mo Mo Mo Salah!" so it would be easy to forget. I do feel sorry for my neighbours, they must think I am a lunatic.}

2.) 30 Nov 2017 19:24:19
Can't blame you, Ed01. He is simply amazing and the funny thing is, we are only scratching the surface of his ability.

3.) 30 Nov 2017 18:49:17
Ed you said last week salah is going the right way towards becoming your fave player. Is he yet or are you resisting the urge to have a fave.

{Ed001's Note - he will need to be here a couple of seasons at least.}

4.) 30 Nov 2017 19:09:45
You sure it has nothing to do with all the stuffed animals you have ed001?

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure they would be considered strange here mate.}

5.) 30 Nov 2017 22:09:21
Ed01 did you notice the lack of celebration from some of the players when Salah scored the volley to make it 2-0. I didn't notice first of all but just watched the highlights back and only 2 players who celebrated with him that I could see were Mane and Moreno (who came from a distance to jump on his back) . He ran past a couple of players across the goal who just stood there.

{Ed001's Note - I didn't notice. I am too busy celebrating myself to be honest. It is probably meaningless but it is something I will try and remember to look out for in future.}

6.) 01 Dec 2017 07:46:32
Someone said Salah has always been a LFC fan but I'm worried about recent comments coming from his camp. Looks like the player harbours a desire to move to Real in the near future. Very worrying if true. That's why one should never get attached to football players. Support the club, not the player.

{Ed025's Note - fair point mate..



29 Nov 2017 15:18:52
Ed01, with regard the Ward thread on the Rumours page, some of the guys said he wasn’t injured and did indeed play for Wales which you said was a surprise to you. Did you happen to check deeper to see where the problem lies that he can’t get into the squad at all seeing as he’s not injured.


{Ed001's Note - apparently his return to fitness was just not mentioned as it was during the international duty. That is what I was told. It was inferred that with him not being in the first team squad there was no need to inform anyone he was back. I have asked a couple of other people and they do say he is very unhappy at being out of the team and not getting games but they also say it was a genuine injury.}

1.) 29 Nov 2017 17:09:53
Thanks mate much appreciated. Guy really needs a loan in Jan or move on as he’s wasting his career at the moment.

{Ed001's Note - agreed.}

MK, if Klopp had gotten a CB, let’s say VVD which the money was there to buy and replaced Migs in nets do you think we would be in our current position or much closer to City? I think we would be second and much closer, replacing Migs with Ward or Karius costs us nothing but Klopp perseveres, not personally messing up the VVD transfer or having a second or even third option is just blatant incompetence. We may not win the league but those two changes I feel would have us in a much better position than we are currently.

As for the argument that he couldn’t get the CB he wanted then should he have gotten in a DM and changed tactics slightly to protect a very poor defense?

BRover, are you still blaming the past for our current woes? Didn’t Ed say Klop said he could win or at least challenge for the title with the side he inherited?
He’s had plenty of time and windows to change what he needed. He’s had money to buy players and he personally wrecked the VVD transfer last window.
Enough excuses for the manager, time to show us a title challenge.

Jordz, unfortunately he illegally approached VVD so he wrecked that one all on his own.
