Don't know how much truth there is in this, but apparently Mignolet may be out of the squad because he may be on his way to Napoli to replace Pepe Reina (de ja vu? ) .

Mr Dennis

1.) 27 Aug 2017 10:21:08
Fingers crossed! I hate player bashing but migs simply has never inspired confidence.

Hopefully Karius will get his chance now with ward as backup.


2.) 27 Aug 2017 10:22:08
I think he is better then karius but at least it would improve wards chances I would like too see him get game time an do well.


3.) 27 Aug 2017 10:29:14
I wouldn't mind seeing Karius no.1, Ward no.2 and Reina as the experienced third keeper they can both learn from.

{Ed002's Note - I rather doubt Liverpool will be able to match the wages he has been offered. http://tinyurl.com/ybqgvedx }


4.) 27 Aug 2017 11:04:49
Ed002: Thanks for the enlightment. :D I thought it was about Couts. Got a little worried.

{Ed002's Note - I don't think Coutsy is tall enough to play in goal.}


5.) 27 Aug 2017 11:16:21
Hopefully Mane Can Karius today.


6.) 27 Aug 2017 11:40:56
Is 'Virgil' Tracy the driver of that new club car Ed002? Haha.


7.) 27 Aug 2017 12:15:29
Mignolet has never had the benefit of playing behind a decent centre half partnership so I'm not going to bash the lad. He has worked on his game, so you can't accuse him of not trying.


8.) 27 Aug 2017 12:55:25
Can we swap him for Reina? (Joking) Should have never let him go.


9.) 27 Aug 2017 13:04:11
Anyone thought Mignolet might be injured? Isn't he cup tied now anyway? Also re Macca rumour - last time he named VvD he apologised for not knowing the club hadn't spoken to Southampton. He hasn't named anyone this time and used the word "finally" - he gives good mail - I am sure most people can work out who he may be referring to. Also te rumours Ox will get more gametime at LFC so if we match CFC I am assuming he will be with us especially with World Cup near - do you agree Eds?

{Ed002's Note - He would not be cup tied.}


10.) 27 Aug 2017 14:17:06
How many times do the Eds need to say that none of our players are cup tied?!?!


11.) 27 Aug 2017 14:39:45
Klopp obviously favours karius cos he bought him hopefully the time he hasn't been playing he been getting better in training.


12.) 27 Aug 2017 16:21:16
About time karius got his second chance. Mignolet surprising form last season kept him out. Mignolet has done okay but has conceded 6 in 4 games. Saved penalty in Europe in balance. Dunno, glad karius is getting his shot hope he keeps a clean sheet against a dangerous arsenal side. 1.0! Come on! Get in Bobby!


13.) 27 Aug 2017 22:27:47
Shame that people still judge keepers on goals conceded. May sound odd but you don't judge your keeper on goals conceded. You could put the best in the world behind a crap defence and goals will go in. In terms of goals it is about positioning and would you expect a save, not volume. Personally think should have gone after Given when Stoke released him and kept him as back up and get him involved in keeper development. That way Ward could have gone on loan or Mignolet could have left.


 

 

12 Apr 2017 16:30:56
Papers reporting we're interested in the woeful Oxlade-Chamberlain for £35m. If we are that desperate to waste money why not simply withdraw the money in cash and set fire to it.

Mr Dennis

1.) 12 Apr 2017 16:58:23
I don't think he's as bad a player as everyone seems to be making out. Probably not worth the money being quoted but He's had some good games for them in the middle and could potentially play in 5 positions for us which going in to Europe next season and some cup runs could be pretty handy if you ask me. Always gives 100% too even when things aren't going their way. I'd have him at Liverpool for 25m.


2.) 12 Apr 2017 17:27:04
I think he's a good player too, 1 big issue for me. injured a lot! We've had / have enough of those players already I'd say. Decent player though in my opinion.


3.) 12 Apr 2017 17:47:56
Me three!
Decent player, not a priority position.


4.) 12 Apr 2017 17:54:06
£35mil is a crazy price for someone with 1 year left on their contract, who's regularly injured and doesn't really score that much.
They'd need to take £10mil+ off that price.


5.) 12 Apr 2017 17:55:39
A good player who starts 10 games for Arsenal ever since he has been there at the club. What a truly great player.


6.) 12 Apr 2017 18:13:51
I can't think of a game where he's been anything over mediocre. He certainly got the run around by Bayern when he was put in the middle and didn't look like a centre midfielder as he looked lost and positionally naive. It's all very well saying he can play in five positions, but it means nothing if he can't play any of them with and skill or ability. It's just square pegs and round holes. 25m is too much, it would be like we hadn't learnt anything from buying Downing if we wasted money on him considering there are better options out there.


7.) 12 Apr 2017 18:14:26
He's a bit of a sick but I do think there is a player in there somewhere with the right coaching but I wouldn't like to see him at Liverpool also the money being mentioned is crazy for a player in the last year of his contract like if he was Spanish you'd be saying 10 mil at most.


8.) 12 Apr 2017 18:44:44
Could always give me 35million, I'd not waste it. much.


9.) 12 Apr 2017 19:51:22
I'm not bothered if we sign him or not. Been proved wrong far too many times to rely on my own instincts regarding how successful players would be for us. Massively disappointed with signing Studge (wanted Walcott instead), didn't rate Mane, wasn't bothered about Coutinho, or Lallana, was well excited about Balotelli, and thought Suso was going to be one of the best midfielders in the league. We're probably not interested in the Ox, but I'll reserve judgment and leave it to the experts I think!


10.) 12 Apr 2017 20:35:25
Looks like BBC rumour appeared straight after someone floated the idea on here and then they bring it up every week or so. Possibly just a case of lazy journalism or his agent floating tales for hus new contract negotiations.


11.) 13 Apr 2017 07:22:14
As mentioned, he could be useful next season, but I would prefer someone in the club promoted to first team next year. £35 mil is a rediculous fee, I wouldn't even pay half that.


12.) 13 Apr 2017 11:06:05
oxlade chamberlain is a useful player to most pl teams for the sheer pace he posseses and although he's very inconsistent (even Sadio was touted to be inconsistent at the start of the season) he's not too much of a headless chicken most of us paint him to be. He had henderson and lovren for breakfast for one of their goals against us. He's definitely not a bad option.


13.) 13 Apr 2017 15:30:42
I think Ramsey is quality but has injury issues too.


14.) 13 Apr 2017 17:43:35
Oxlade is not lightning quick by any stretch of the imagination, he's not particularly skilful, has a poor end product and just runs around a lot.


 

 

25 Apr 2016 09:28:15
Echo is reporting that we're interested in Andre Schurle, always liked him as a player, quick, hard working, reasonably skilful, can play accross the front line and has a rocket of a shot on him.

Mr Dennis

{Ed002's Note - Another EPL side has been looking at Schurrle in recent weeks and has spoken with his agent.}


1.) 25 Apr 2016 11:56:46
He would complete City's new attacking trio in place of the great but aging and increasingly injured Silva so I hope it's not them! An underused player at Chelsea.


2.) 25 Apr 2016 12:14:57
Spurs?


3.) 25 Apr 2016 11:56:50
Is it confirmed which club that is out of interest ed002.

{Ed002's Note - Spurs.}


4.) 25 Apr 2016 13:04:06
So does this rule us out or have we showed a genuine interest in him? I've liked shurrle ever since Leverkusen and he was actually pretty good for Chelsea. I don't understand why Chelsea would get rid of de bruyne and shurrle.

{Ed002's Note - There are reasons both left Chelsea, in the case of Schurrle he had not been playing very well, a good offer was made and the club asked him if he wanted to go - the answer was "yes" as he thought it best for his career. Wolfsburg know of interest from Spurs - and that has been ramping up in recent weeks, and they know that prior Dortmund interest in replacing Reus with Schurrle has now gone. They don't know of interest from Liverpool.}


5.) 25 Apr 2016 14:04:29
i hope he does not come, he is over rated and when you see him play, he often loses the ball. let Spurs have him, he will only warm their bench.


6.) 26 Apr 2016 09:21:59
I think he would be a very good fit for a trio with coutinho and firmino. I'm starting to think it less likely we go for a wide forward however as I think it's looking more likely milner and lalanna will stay? This would again leave us overstocked unless ibe and ojo get loaned and markovic goes but I don't see that as too likely either though.
I would like us to go for someone like schurle if we do go for an attacking player, think we need someone direct with pace and power and of decent height that provides goals, someone in the bale or schurle mold.


 

 

18 Apr 2016 09:26:34
Papers are linking us to Theo Walcott again. I really hope that this is a rehash of an old link. can't see why we would waste money on someone who is so injury prone and has little in the way of end product when there are far more talented players around for the same money and less wages.

Mr Dennis

1.) 18 Apr 2016 10:11:22
Rather give Ojo and ibe a go.


2.) 18 Apr 2016 11:53:49
Agree 110%. Both have the potential to be far better than him.


3.) 18 Apr 2016 14:26:27
And they both seem to be less injury prone than Walcott at this moment in time. That can obviously change but still.


4.) 18 Apr 2016 16:54:32
To be fair being less injury prone than Walcott isn't difficult.


5.) 18 Apr 2016 21:55:10
We'll always be linked to him because he's a known Liverpool fan. He could have been a really good player without the injuries but we don't need more injury prone players.


6.) 19 Apr 2016 00:25:49
Recycled rubbish from three years ago. He's not good enough and we don't need him.


 

 

26 Mar 2016 19:13:36
Papers reporting that we're interested in Sczesny and Oxlade-Chamberlain. Really hope that this isn't true as they're both bang average and not any better than what we have already.

Mr Dennis

1.) 26 Mar 2016 20:37:06
Agreed.


2.) 26 Mar 2016 20:49:28
£40 million in the same report, I'd say it's rubbish.

But with fsg at the helm you never know.


3.) 27 Mar 2016 08:29:32
I'd hope it's just paper talk, I've never seen the fuss about Oxlade Chamberlain, poor final ball, runs about a lot to no end and thinks he's a centre midfielder, is nothing more than a quicker version of Milner and we've already got one of those thanks!
As for Sczesny, no thanks, he's having a decent season in a league where keepers have it easy, doesn't change the fact that he's not much better than Mignolet.


4.) 28 Mar 2016 01:31:44
They're both average and aren't better than what we already have so nothing else to see here.


5.) 28 Mar 2016 07:51:59
I think Szczesny is much better than Mignolet imo. don't want the ox though, always saw potential in him but injuries have stunted his main development years and it may be hard for him to fulfill his potential. Wenger still doesn't seem to know his position.


6.) 29 Mar 2016 08:07:50
Szczesny is better than Mings but if we're going out and spending money, then maybe we should aim for good, rather than just better than mings.

If any of you lads are in any doubt about Keita, watch the game that RBL played against Hamburg. The lad ran the show and scored an absolute thunderbastard from 30+ yards. Make no mistake, he's a cracking player who is worth the effort.

Mr Dennis

1.) 09 Sep 2017 09:50:01
Just watched it 😳👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻.


2.) 09 Sep 2017 10:50:18
Watched it where? Wouldn't mind having a look.

There's a clip on empireofthekop. com - not bad.


4.) 09 Sep 2017 12:15:16
Brilliant goal and performance by Keita.
The lads pure class.
Hope his injury isn't too bad.


 

 

27 Aug 2017 21:37:14
Ed002, do you happen to know (or have heard anything) what the sticking points are with Can and his contract? Seems to most reasonable observers that he's a big talent and his stock is on the rise and that the club should move hell and high water to get him to sign if.

Mr Dennis

{Ed002's Note - No but it would be reasonable to assume it is the standard "game time" issue that many clubs are finding issue with.}


1.) 27 Aug 2017 22:04:12
Cheers Ed. These things are pretty intangible aren't they? I know there was always the rumour of Glen Johnson's 'if he's fit he plays' clause, but they don't really happen do they?

{Ed002's Note - I am not talking about clauses in the contract.}


2.) 27 Aug 2017 22:13:20
He's playing regular at the moment and given his current form should continue to play on a regular basis. Hopefully should that be the case it'll be enough to convince him to sign a new contract with us. Would be a real shame to lose a young player with so much potential. I think most of us myself included can be guilty of judging and righting players off too quickly. Amazing how quickly we change our tune! Here's hoping Emre signs a new contract.


3.) 27 Aug 2017 23:03:41
at the moment he is a vital member of the team and for me should be made captain,

If he keeps performing like this game time will be the least of his worries.


4.) 28 Aug 2017 02:49:46
Why on earth should he be captain? A great start to the season by Emre but let's not get carried away.

New image uploaded to the
Liverpool Player Sightings page entitled, I think this puts to bed any chance of Van Dijk signing, apparently he was at Wembley watching Chelsea..

4.) 21 Aug 2017 20:32:07
'Apparently'. Doesn't exactly put it to bed does it lol.


5.) 21 Aug 2017 21:07:42
Ok. Well it was taken this weekend and VVD has been in London all week. He's going to Chelsea. We've ballsed it up good and proper.


6.) 21 Aug 2017 22:13:41
2 + 2 = 5
As bad as the fat kid from Bolton!


7.) 22 Aug 2017 00:24:57
How is it 2+2=5? Chelsea are in for van Dijk. That's a fact. He was in London all of last week and posted on social media that he was. He wrote "LONDON" with a picture of himself, also a fact. He (and his best mate, who are joined at the hip) attend Spurs v Chelsea. Southampton are now looking at a replacement. They will probably want shot of someone who is disrupting their team and they won't sell to us. That's a little more than 2+2 = 5. In fact that's better than balance of overall probability. If you want to look at people as bad as the fat kid from Bolton, it's the ones still clinging onto the possibility of signing van Dijk and Keita. They're not happening. Our so called committee will go for Ox and probably Gibson, as that's as far as their imagination stretches, mediocrity. They lack the nous to bring in genuine top class talent.


8.) 22 Aug 2017 01:46:58
Don't our representatives meet people in London at times? such as in recent history the Barcelona/ Coutinho affair. Not saying he is there to meet them just saying doesn't automatically mean he is going to Chelsea.


9.) 22 Aug 2017 01:55:07
If social media posts are the cast iron proof that you need then no wonder twitter is full of transfer rubbish for gullible fools!
I have no doubt Van Dijk was in London last week, was it just for a day or all week? Chelsea are the only reason he could be there right? Just playing devils advocate but don't Liverpool also have offices in London?
I have no doubt his best mate was at the Spurs v Chelsea game, are you sure Van Dijk was there too?
He probably will end up at Chelsea rather than Liverpool as our recruitment is absolutely useless but a couple of social media posts aren't proof of anything.


 

 

18 Aug 2017 20:43:01
Just to clarify, this is apparently the 'deal' Barcelona offered.

Winning multiple trophies in the same season

Winning multiple Champions League titles

Winning the Ballon d’Or as the world’s best player

Winning multiple trophies and the Ballon
D’Or in the same season

Payment of the basic £80m fee staggered over five years

They may as well write all this on a bit of paper and shove it as far up their council gritter as possible.

Mr Dennis

1.) 18 Aug 2017 21:01:41
They won't be winning much unless they sort out that squad.


2.) 18 Aug 2017 21:55:20
I hate all these add on "if they do this" scenarios that are put into transfer fees, I know it's a way for the buyer to try and mitigate against buying a player that ends up a flop but some of them are just daft, may as well put in "if coutinho cures cancer we will pay an extra £50m"
Is this a newish thing that's popped into the game eds as I don't seem to remember them when I was younger?


 

 

07 Jun 2016 19:56:15
Just a question lads. If Coutinho were to leave, who would you replace him with? I'd quite like Calhanoglu, really clever player, bags of skill and a little pace, great range of passing, plus he can't have strike a dead ball and is deadly from 30+ yard.

Mr Dennis

1.) 07 Jun 2016 20:40:52
Goetze.


2.) 07 Jun 2016 21:01:40
Bearing in mind Coutinho plays on the left for us, I'd replace him with an out and out wide forward. N'Koudou would be my pick as he has bags of pace, completely two footed which makes him unpredictable, and for such a young player his composure and final ball is very good.

Coutinho is great but he is ultimately an attacking midfielder filling in out wide due to a severe lack of proper wide players.

I wouldn't sign a number 10 type player though because in Firmino we have a player who can play as a second striker but drop into the hole as and when it is required.

I'd leave Firmino as a second striker alongside Sturridge, leave Hendo and Can as a two man midfield, and then sign a right and left sided midfielder/ forward.

N'Koudou and El Ghazi would give us goals from out wide. If we had some actual pace going forward and players to provide genuine width, I think we will carry a massive threat going forward. Then we have Milner and Lallana as experienced options for the wider areas as El Ghazi in particular probably isn't ready for 90 mins a week in a top league.

When the opposition has the ball Firmino can drop deeper to help the midfield though. So I'm not sure I'd target a like for like Coutinho replacement.


3.) 07 Jun 2016 23:29:34
Agree with all three if you in certain respects.
Calhanoglou would bring a much needed threat from set-pieces, and looks to me like someone who could fit our system, I believe he often plays on the left wing MK?
Götze is and has been the dream for three and a half years, I believe my very first posts on this site asked about Götze, Diakité and Mam Sakho!
Yeah, MK, we want someone who won't look out of place or awkward on the left wing- particularly if Lallana is set to play the right wing role, as he doesn't offer huge width, although I rate him highly all the same.
Haven't watched enough of Calhanoglou in flesh to see what he's like on the left, but anyway what about Andre Schürrle as a shout from the left-field? Great goal scoring record, can press hard and naturally a left winger, even if he cuts in a lot.


4.) 08 Jun 2016 00:17:06
Calhanoglu is quite a plate and is lethal from set pieces.


5.) 08 Jun 2016 06:36:30
i know we would like to win cups, bt i don't think fielding plates would be the best idea.

Completely agree with Ed that none of L. Suarez, Mascherano, Gomes, Rafinha, Rakitic, D. Suarez, Vermaelen or Turan are good business, either because they’re not good enough (Rafinha, Gomes, D. Suarez) or because they’re past their prime and would be a liability on the pitch (Rakitic, Mascherano, Turan, Vermaelen) or a complete lunatic and a liability on the pitch (L. Suarez) . A big sack of cash or no deal for Coutinho.

Mr Dennis

{Ed002's Note - Coutinho wants to go, it is a case of negotiating the best deal - this "big pile of cash or no deal" will leave Liverpool screwed if they have such ideas as well.}

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.

But by the same token that we can attack well without him, I would make the following comments. Firstly without him we have no one who can score a free kick from outside the box, secondly he’s the best passer and play maker at the club, thirdly we shouldn’t sell for sellibgs sake, whoever buys him should pay a lot of money through the nose. And we should not accept any Barcelona player in PX.
