Call it conspiracy but here is how I think Liverpool ll try to handle VVD's transfer.
They will wait until someone else bids for him, they may even wait until it's accepted. And they will try to match that in the last minute. But I think it will be too late like it was with Salah few years back. You can only ask so much of loyalty from a player that hasn't played a single game for us before.




21 Jul 2017 07:22:00
so if I understand ed02 right, when Liverpool say Coutinho is not for sell, it has everything to do with price but for Keita no means no.


{Ed002's Note - I don't understand what your point is. Point me at whatever post you seem to see an issue with.}

1.) 21 Jul 2017 09:24:21
Transfers are more than a matter of money. Contract length obviously plays a part but also promises made to a player, squad management etc will all be involved. I have no idea how this applies with RBL and Keita or with us and Couts (eds? ), just pointing out it's not black and white.

I know a lot has been said about Robertson.
But my question is, Do we want him as a backup for Milner or will Milner move to his natural position and be used as a backup for Robertson.
In other words, are we looking at him as someone who ll get into the starting 11 immediately?


1.) 16 Jul 2017 17:06:43
Some fans have dismissed it but I think the fact he's an actual LB he should be given a chance in the starting 11 personally.

2.) 16 Jul 2017 17:25:42
Totally agree ST as a natural LB he has to be a starter.

3.) 16 Jul 2017 17:26:28
I'd agree with you, Tomato.

Also, is Joe Gomez's natural position as a LCB or RCB?

4.) 16 Jul 2017 19:30:16
If both Keita and Robertson arrive along with Van Dijk, I honestly can't see where Milner will play. We would have enough cover at full back with

Alexander Arnold.

Centre mid I can't see any chance when we would have Keita, Henderson, Can, Wijnaldum, Coutinho with both Salah and Mane wide.

Could it be possible we would move him on? I do like Milner very professional and hard working player and man. I just thinked if th pet rumoured three transfers happen where would he fit?

He'd be a great buy for someone like Bournemouth in my opinion, dare I say I think he'd be an excellent buy for Everton.

5.) 16 Jul 2017 19:53:18
Jonesred, more likely to see Flanagan moving on. He hasn't had a run of games since the 2013-14 season. In fact he's only played 18 competitive games in the last 3 seasons, because of the awful injuries he has suffered.

I reckon Milner will cover both LB and RB, and may even be first choice RB depending on how the pre-season goes.

Based on Robertson joining, of course.

6.) 16 Jul 2017 20:23:27
Milner will be a utility player next year. Can fill in at full back, midfield or wing. So would be a good player to have on the bench.

{Ed025's Note - i agree ted..

7.) 16 Jul 2017 21:07:10
Problem for him is he wants more regular football. I could see him leaving due to that. We still have Grujic as well as youngsters.



08 Jul 2017 20:55:55
Hey editors, don't come here very often but when I do it is hard to catch. If I want editors comments on a particular subject, how do I get it? Would like to hear ed1 and ed2 comments on some of the players we have been linked.
Going to transfers, Lucas Digne is the players we are linked with recently, he was linked to us in the past but I wonder if this is true now? He is not getting regular games at Barcelona and I wonder if the player is interested in moving to England and if Barcelona ll let him go for the right offer .?


{Ed002's Note - Try the search function - enter the name of the player - then search the page for Ed001, Ed002 or whatever.

I am only aware of one side shoiwing an interest in Digne and it is not Liverpool. Liverpool has identified the LB they want.}

1.) 08 Jul 2017 23:25:05
Ed, are you referring to Robertson or are you hinting at some exciting new transfer rumour?

{Ed002's Note - As far as I know enquiries for Celestine Babayaro have gone nowhere and we are back to Robertson right now.}

2.) 08 Jul 2017 23:56:13
Heard it here first, Babayaro is coming out of retirement to solve all our problems :-)

Thanks for clarifying ed2.



31 Jul 2015 13:01:14
Not sure if anyone else mentioned it here, just came to the page after a while. I am really disappointed with the way Balotelli, Borini and Enrique are being treated by the club. Isolate them from the squad as if they have a virus that contaminates the others? Is it even a good decision business wise ? Don't think I have seen us treating players like that because they are unwanted.
concerning transfers, editors sorry if this may come as redundant on you but is our business concerning ins over ? or any position we like to strengthen? perhaps a defensive midfielder or a left back ?


1.) 31 Jul 2015 13:26:20
I am with all but Enrique. There's a reason we can't get rid of him.

2.) 31 Jul 2015 13:36:56
Respect your opinipn BUT many clubs do it all the time so nothing new there. Malouda was forced to train with the U21`s for a whole season at Chelsea and did not hear many fans at Chelsea moaning about it. If the players refuse to leave even tho offers are on the table for them and they know they are no longer needed and won't play, then whatever they do is their choice and if they wanna remain marginalized then that`s their decision because God knows I would NEVER allow myself to just train with the kids and not play for a whole season.

3.) 31 Jul 2015 13:53:18
Mikias, I'm pretty sure your thoughts are being clouded by your opinion of the management.

These guys are no longer part of the first team so when they team travels they're left on their own.

4.) 31 Jul 2015 14:26:47

Whats the point in these players training with the 1st team if they are not apart of it , in training the manager and coaches will be going through the tactics they will be using in the games coming up , like marking and defending set pieces , if he let's any of these players train with the 1st team on these tactics then there will be confusion when it come to the prem games because a player could easily say i thought ballo was marking that player or this player that's why they are not training with the 1st team , that's what i think anyway as i'm not privvy to the managers thoughts , but i do know that we have done it before when other players needed a different traing regime because they were come back from injury and the 1st teams traing was to much , plus I've also read in papers its happened in other clubs in the prem , if these players were good enough they would be with the squad or other teams would be snapping them up , the fact not many are should tell you something , ballo could be a very good player if he applied himself better because he has the talent , borini is not as good as studge or benteke and enrique is just a sick note , he is getting payed a lot of money for being injured all the time , why not try to see how much he got while he was injured and not even being on the field of play,also with these players what happens if they get injured while doing the intense training , we would be stuck with players we don't want ,

5.) 31 Jul 2015 14:30:45
I don't feel very sorry for Borini. He must have known last summer he had little chance of starting any games, yet he turned down a chance to play for sunderland, perhaps in the hope that lfc would buckle and allow him a cheap loan move to italy. He gambled in refusing sunderland and it never paid off- unless you count him staying on tens of thousands of pounds salary each week as paying off.

Enrique it seems refuses to learn more discipline in his game, and is therefore not up to the standard needed for a club with CL aspirations.
Balotelli was a huge gamble that never paid off, and I think his very laid back approach and his wacky attitude to the game could well affect the motivation and the performance of other players, so I totally understand the need to separate him from the first team- although it is a harsh thing to do.

6.) 31 Jul 2015 16:41:12
For me I don't quite follow the logic behind being seemingly desperate to offload players while simultaneously expecting ridiculous offers for their services. Bizarre.

7.) 31 Jul 2015 18:15:59
I would have some sympathy if they weren't getting paid.

8.) 31 Jul 2015 17:44:11
So Liverpool publicly disrespecting players is different to players (sterling) disrespecting Liverpool is different how??

Sterling wanted to leave he did what he had to do. Liverpool want players to leave they do what they have to do.

Personally I think it's out of order what the club has done. The above players are only here because they were bought by the club and offered silly wages. If I was offered a new job in my profession that was worth a lot less then my current I'd stay whether or not I was wanted. Fans share a completely different loyalty than players.

9.) 31 Jul 2015 19:31:28
Mikias I completely agree with you. The players are still getting paid so should be doing the work and representing Liverpool in Finland rather than sitting on their backside. Surely we stand a better chance of selling a player for decent money if we make it 'look like' they still have something to offer us rather than letting the world know that we want rid asap (even if it is no secret that we want rid of the players). It just doesn't make any business sense at all.

Anyway, it seems like the near 30m Borini and Balotelli will end up on loan to Italian clubs with 'options to buy' but knowing us and Italian clubs, the option will not be exercised and will lead to another loan to buy from other Italian clubs next season.

10.) 31 Jul 2015 19:43:09
I have sympathy for Borini because he really, really wanted to do well here. At times he was trying too hard, I still think he is a decent player just not for Liverpool, and its not like he had the oppotunities.

Balotelli and Enrique I have little sympathy for, Enrique seems happy to pick up a check and Balotelli has all the talent in the world but little of the application, if I was him I'd make sure I was on the training pitch running my ass off after training has ended to try and make myself the best player I could possibly be and prove that I'm not the lazy player everyone thinks.

Clearly Klop doesn't think high of the young defenders. He doesn't want Ilori and wisdom at all. Lucas is a midfielder, you may play him as a defender when there is a crisis but you shouldn't start a season considering him as a center back option. In modern football its difficult to play inexperienced center backs unless they are very talented, strikers continuously put pressure on defenders and in so many occasions goals are scored because of errors. I believe this is one position where the ability to read the game matters the most. when Gomes is fit he will get a chance if he is better. it's not like seniority is a criteria when he selects his line up.

obviously it's because of the TV deal. no idea why Ed 02 disagreed with that comment. i don't think they can afford to bid that much with out it.


{Ed001's Note - because you are wrong. They could not afford to spend that much because of the TV deal. Why do ignorant people argue when it is clear they have no idea what they are talking about? Palace were taken over recently by an extremely well-financed group who are pumping money in. That is why they can afford it, not because of the TV money, which they have not received yet anyway.}

didn't Aspas say Sevilla were obligated to make the move permanent according to the loan agreement. he made an interview early on when the season ended that he was sure his move to Sevilla would permanent.


{Ed002's Note - Sevilla paid the fee due to Liverpool and sold him right on - this was always a likely scenario - try the search engine.}

I was also surprised with the pictures when Firmino isn't officially our player yet. one question to you editors: James pearce said that When Ayre flew to Santiago, the best he could hope for was a verbal agreement but things went very smoothly and we were able to sign the player. not the exact words but that is what he said. does this mean that there is a signed agreement already in place and it can only be revoked if he fails medical or liverpool are unable to acquire a work permit for him ? what kind of agreement is that? Can for instance other teams sneak him before he becomes an official liverpool player ? Really surprised those pictures were out


{Ed002's Note - Any agreements are subject to the completion of certain activities and the player will sign his contract once those activities are done - and those activities will be reflected in the agreement with Hoffenheim.}

if its a straight swap deal, who assigns the value?


{Ed002's Note - In exchanges the values are assigned by an independent committee working on behalf of The FA - those values are passed to UEFA.}

Editor 1, may be I haven't watched enough west ham games this season. I thought he was a quality defensive midfielder and he is being rated highly this season. We need another defensive midfielder. we needed that since Alonso and Mashcerano left. ideally I would like someone like Wistel or Martinez but Liverpool can't afford the fees and wages for that kind of player.


{Ed001's Note - he is far from quality, he is highly rated because he is quite creative, but he is lazy and is never in position defensively.}
