Eds do you think we will be able to pursuade Rbl into selling Kieta, given they don't need the cash? Be tough one imo?


{Ed001's Note - they will only sell players they don't want or that force their way out.}

1.) 24 Jun 2017 15:42:51
Does the player even want to leave?

2.) 24 Jun 2017 16:32:58
No he doesn't want to leave. I guess that's that then ed.

3.) 24 Jun 2017 16:56:19
We'll have to get Aldo on the case then, telling him to go on strike.

4.) 24 Jun 2017 19:42:11
Even Aldo will have a hard time convincing a player who does not want to leave his club regardless of the fee.

5.) 25 Jun 2017 02:39:37
Does anyone else think that Aldo talking like that may have been unofficially sanctioned by our Elite Tapping Up Department?

Dark forces may be up to no good again.



23 Jun 2017 23:06:04
Eds. Any update please as regards to our pursuit of Luan?


{Ed002's Note - No.}



23 Jun 2017 08:12:49
Good morning all

Very pleased with the Mo Salah arrival I think he will fit into the team very well indeed.

Ed001, i've read down the page that you think our next move will be to sort out the VVD deal, I must say I am a little surprised by this given the clubs statement but I understands the points youve explained and I think the hardest thing might be Saints willing to talk to us, unless talks have already started again? My only worry is we don't spunk most of our budget leaving us short on funds in other more needed areas like LB. Also a right kick in the groin for Gomez, he isn't going to get a look in at all if another CB arrives. Thanks for your info again ed, have a good weekend mate.


{Ed001's Note - I am not necessarily saying we will buy him, but we will look to sort it out one way or the other. With Saints now taking legal advice over Aldridge's comments, they are also likely to push the FA to take action, so I expect us to try and do something about the situation. There are some people within the club that believe we are waiting on him to hand in a written transfer request to return with a firm offer, but I would rather we just tried to smooth the waters personally.

Either way, any action by the player will cause a reaction and it is expected that he will take action with a further transfer request, probably in writing, as he looks to leave. If he is not granted his request, he had indicated a willingness to go further, to get a move.

I would hope that he was just upset and will calm down and realise that the best thing for his career is to just sit down with Southampton and agree to stay for a season, give his all, then leave next summer. However, he has indicated, which is part of the issue with all of this, that he believes he was promised that he could move on this summer.}

1.) 23 Jun 2017 08:32:33
The first action LFC need to take is tell the legends to keep the g**s shut. Do these idiots not realise they are simply making things difficult for the club? Aldridge should be given a strong lettered word by the club to watch his mouth. If someone else told one of our players to force a move out publicly, how infuriated will those connected to LFC feel?
Imo, we should just forget about VVD and move on. Last thing we need is a transfer ban.

{Ed001's Note - we need to do more than just forget, we need to make it right with Soton. Then we need to make it right with any other club we have dumped on in recent years too and start acting correctly in the transfer market. We do not need to cheat, to cheapen ourselves by tapping up players. We are a huge club, we are a big draw to many players, there is no need to do anything shady to attract quality players to the club.}

2.) 23 Jun 2017 08:44:35
Owe I see what you are saying now mate thank you for spelling it iut for me. A good solution might well be we smooth it all over with them and pursue other CB targets.

3.) 23 Jun 2017 08:37:20
Wow! We can't really blame the saints for the willingness to talk legal advice against Al's statement. Immediately I read about it, I was pissed personally. Although he has come out to say he was misquoted.

{Ed002's Note - The club really need to clean up their act and get the manager, at least one member of the coaching staff and former players to tow the line. It goes well beyond an ex-player saying "he would be a great buy" to making suggestions that the player could force a move by striking.}

4.) 23 Jun 2017 09:48:08
This type of behavior makes me so ashamed.

5.) 23 Jun 2017 10:46:25
Totally agree Ed002. Its embarassing.

6.) 23 Jun 2017 11:11:21
It was poor of Aldridge. Another showing of how irresponsible the club management team currently are acting.

His comments were inappropriate but Southampton won't get anywhere with there legal advice unless Aldridge is employed by the club. Is that the case eds?

{Ed002's Note - Really, that is what you think? Liverpool have for a long time been dreadful in their transfer dealings. The board trailed slime as the grovelled with Fulham to stop a complaint to the FA. Two warnings last season as I explained; caught again this season with manager acting in the most disgraceful manner; a grovelling apology and confirmation that interest has gone. Already banned and fined this season for tapping up another player. A separate court case pending about fouling up a child's career. A previous captain bragging about how he would illegally approach players he didn't know on behalf of the club. Now an ex-player and a regular paid contributor to LFC TV coming out with such a statement about another club's player.}

7.) 23 Jun 2017 11:24:58
have to agree with the eds on this, we don't need to be doing this sort of thing, we should be conducting ourselves in a professional manner, other clubs may do it too, but we are public with how we do it, which really is a disgrace.

8.) 23 Jun 2017 12:08:34
I mentioned a few seasons ago that fiorentina have zero interest in working with LFC again after having many issues with Aquilani siging and then again with Lucas. It's not a recent problem and is not restricted to just current staff or executives. This is a problem infesting the entire club and they have been aware of this for a long long time and done nothing about it.

9.) 23 Jun 2017 11:53:26
I am not disagreeing with you Ed002. I'm sick of the way the club has acted and continues too. I just think the state of the media and all there false news and freedom of speech etc it would be difficult for them to take action against Aldridge. That being said I wouldn't argue if they were successful in there legal advice. I'd be happy to be proved wrong as his comments were stupid.

The club and how Klopp acted that's different imo, it's a no win situation for the club. Personally I would think that even though a ban would hurt specially in the short term it would be the right thing to happen by the letter of the law. A statement does need to be made, seems the club never try and clean up there act. Hopefully something serious like a transfer ban against first team players would start a change.

{Ed002's Note - Who has suggested "action" against Aldridge? You don't seem to be able to grasp the situation here - and why start against the media and what has this got to do with "freedom of speech"? I guess you don't understand what that is either.}

10.) 23 Jun 2017 12:48:34
HI Eds
Is the legal action with Liverpool or John or both. Also I think you said the best thing mite be to sigh vvd to make it right and not leave him in limbo. Is this still the case. Or are we best saying sorry again and walk away?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about. Liverpool's position was made clear in a statement from te club.}

11.) 23 Jun 2017 12:38:49
Ed, im not getting dragged into this argument and I agree with everything you have said regarding our club doing things incorrectly and making a complete mess of the whole situation. Regarding the player, have Chelsea now made a new bid for him?

{Ed002's Note - Try the Chelsea page. This is the Liverpool page.}



20 Jun 2017 17:31:56
Eds. With the likely arrival of Salah, can I ask your thoughts please on were he plays? Mane being the RW do you see him on the LW with Coutinho central? I can't see Salah coming to be back up to Mane? Unless we are still after a LW and Salah will be rotated accross the front places depending on the game it self. I can only think Klopp sees him as a LW else we have not really addressed our wing issue. Thoughts please?


{Ed001's Note - why don't people read through? This has been discussed and discussed repeatedly every single day.}

1.) 20 Jun 2017 18:25:28
Sorry ed. Fair enough I will have another look.

2.) 20 Jun 2017 18:48:12
Salah is left footed. We will likely see Mane play down the left and Salah down the right. Inverted wingers cutting in and hopefully two adept fullbacks for next season, one with a proper left peg and another with a right. Klopp said end of the season that he sees Coutinho dropping into midfield. We will be causing havoc all over the show for opposition defences.

That is pretty much all we we need to take it to the next level :-)

Problem is that Clyne is looking likely to run up and down the pitch next season again with little to no outcome.

3.) 20 Jun 2017 18:58:18
Cheers Max. Appreciate the info mate. I see what your saying. Sounds like the best option.

4.) 20 Jun 2017 21:13:56
forwards will inter change .

5.) 20 Jun 2017 21:31:06
I think it could be at beginning of season

Salah. Mane.

Coutinho. Can.


6.) 21 Jun 2017 00:46:32
I suspect more likely we end up with

Salah - Firmino - Mane
Coutinho - Gini

If Coutinho drops to midfield I suspect Gini would be preferred over Lallana for the extra control he can offer

Very likely the wings could also swap if we're looking for them to cut inside rather than get in behind - personally though I'd start Salah on the left as Coutinho is very effective at cutting inside already, so a pacy left footed winger would be a perfect foil for him to create width (particularly against the more defensive setups)

As far as I'm concerned this is an awesome, PL winning quality team if everyone stays fit, and it also gives us lots of options to tweak depending on the opposition. We could easily swap the wingers, switch in Can for Hendo, put Llalana in for Gini, Sturridge in for Firmino or even play Coutinho forward again to give Salah time to settle. all of these would see little or no change in quality of the side but rather just allow us to play slightly different ways. We haven't seen that in years.

Hopefully we just strengthen the defence now.



19 Jun 2017 07:03:18
Morning all

People are still hoping we sign VVD but with us saying we have ended interest, the club would look really stupid imo if we were to try and return for him.

Also the Aubameyang rumours are all fabrication. We have Sturridge Origi Ings Firmino Solanke and we only play one Striker, with no signs any of these will leave. Klopp has said he would not try to sign BVB players also his salary/ fee would be out of reach.

Both players not happening, let's not pretend they are.


1.) 19 Jun 2017 09:59:44
Sturridge is injury prone, Origi is not good enough, who knows if Ings will come back the same player, definitely not next season and Solanke is not ready and untried in the Prem. A place has to be found for Firmino but he is not a 20 goal a season man.

We NEED a striker, as we will play a lot more games next season. In Champions League we will need a quality striker who can come off the bench.

It will be criminal if we don't address this issue yet again.

2.) 19 Jun 2017 10:13:52
FIrmino will not score more than 15 a season. He is not a natural striker nor he possess one. I don't know what will happen to him if we buy a world class striker.
But that's the rule of the forest.

3.) 19 Jun 2017 11:16:23
Kilometer - whether any of what you say about those strikers is true, regaendless, it is nonsensical to stockpile players in a position to cover for every hypothetical permutation.

4.) 19 Jun 2017 11:10:14
OP, are you stating an OPINION that these rumours are fabrication, or have you got information that proves this as FACT?

Anyone can profess an opinion, and often do, but if someone as insider info then that's different!

5.) 19 Jun 2017 12:29:06
Faithinworks, what I have said is true, as most people on here will agree.

We would not be stockpiling strikers because Sturridge is the only one at the level to win us a major trophy. So anyone who thinks he will play 38 league games plus Champion League games is living on Fantasy Island.

6.) 19 Jun 2017 13:32:08
Why does Firmino need to score 20+ goals playing as a central striker? As long as the team scores enough goals we will be fine. I personally think we have a much better chance of doing so if Firmino plays as our central striker.

Ed can you say or not please if there has been contact between us and Arsenal, or even talks between representatives and were talks are at currently.

Appreciate if i've asked to much and you don't want to say, but you do normally advise us of contact.

Thanks again mate.

I really hope we get him tbh.


{Ed001's Note - he has been told he can leave if he wants and a bid comes in that meets Arsenal's valuation. As far as I am aware that is as far as things have gone, but Klopp really does want to sign him, he wants to join Liverpool, so I expect a deal to be done.}

A good addition imo if we get him. Can play in a number of positions and is very energetic.

I assume he wants assured game time though ed? Something I am not sure we can offer him more than what Arsenal are currently doing.

Do you think he will come mate or more likely to sign a new contract and stay?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any assurances. I can tell you about the interest but I have no idea where it will lead.}

Ed001 explained we are not looking to sign him any longer and pushing for the Ox as an alternative.

He still leaving even with his injury ed and the price we are demanding for him? I thought we would be short of possible buyers for him.

We at least need to try and put things right with Southampton Max. What I don't understand is there us know back up to VVD at all. Prepared to spend big on him but stick with what we have if we don't go for him. Very strange imo.

It was said that we are not chasing Kieta as he does not want to leave and Rbl do not wish to sell. Ed said Ox wants to join us and Klopp wants him a a deal is likely at this stage. The other CM's mentioned would seemingly not be looked at as well stacked in that area.
