Eds any truth that we can expect the Suarez deal to be completed in the next 48 hours?


{Ed001's Note - how can anyone possibly know that? One little detail can hold up a contract for an unlimited amount of time. It would just be a guess.}

1.) And why do you need to know that? If this come true, all the medias will shout it, the whole world will hear about it. I can't understand the passion of some people and their desire to know what will happen days ago.
Do you think your life will be better if you know whether Suarez will be sold after 2 days or 2 weeks? He's on his way out, mate, realize it, stay calm and keep walking! We are Liverpool, God damn it!

2.) Iv your not interested in knowing things in football before they actually happen, why in gods name are you on a rumour site, god damn

3.) Keep Suarez feeder clubs win nothing. Yeah we got rid of Torres but didn't really progress at the time. Don't swap add Sanchez

4.) 04 Jul 2014 14:10:36
@Rossy1lfc, noone knows our transfers before they actually happen, even in this site. We're discussing interest in one guy or another, events that there's a possibility to happen. But as you see, even insiders like Macca can't tell you what will surely come true.
As I asked before, what's the difference for you if a player will be sold in the next 2 days or in the next 2 weeks, for example?
"Oh, look at me! I know Suarez will NOT be sold on Tuesday. We'll sell him on Monday. How great am I!"
I visit rumours site not because guys like Eds, who can tell you in any moment anything about scouted players and formal offers - it forms in my mind at least a superficial glance about our transfer strategy. "Who" - that's important, but not "when".

Any truth in the Origi rumours eds?


{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry. Like I said previously, the only team I know that was chasing him were Spurs.}



29 Apr 2014 21:25:53
Hi Eds
Are Utd likely to land Toni Kroos? Have Liverpool ever held interest in him? I feel he would be the perfect replacement for Gerrard and his wages aren't massively high.


{Ed002's Note - New deal, Juve, Real Madrid or Manchester United. Not Liverpool.}

Just want to make a post about Gini in the 6 role.

Now when the season started, I doubt that many of us would have been expecting him to not only start the first 3 games, but start them playing as a 6. Obviously he had played there on ocassions last season when we were short, but he has quietly impressed me.

Some games it doesn’t actually look like he’s offering anything (Brighton) his ball winning and retention is sublime for his previous positions and husband stature almost. What I think it shows is he’s a very smart player, often simply just putting his body between the opposition and the ball or picking the best possible option when being pressed and under pressure.

I also think while he is great defensively, when the pace of the games are a little slower I think he will struggle and that he doesn’t offer too much going forward. I almost feel as if the instructions Klopp must give him are “Keep the ball and win the ball” he never seems to look for a killer pass and would much rather pass to one of his partners in midfield or onto the flanks. Something Henderson has been slated for over the years, he was brilliant when given the licence to go forward more in the World Cup. Then Wijnaldum plays as an 8, or the most attacking midfielder, he never strops trying to to break the lines to create space or create an opportunity. Obviously you’re not going to get the licence to do that playoff as a 6 but I feel the runs he can make should mean that ocassionally he is allowed to break and one of his partners could cover him. It’s like watching a different player almost when he plays as a 6 compared to 8/ 10 but both I find very effective!

As mentioned I don’t think think he’ll start even every game, and certainly not as a number 6, and I’m quite looking forward to seeing Fabinho. I just feel in the fast paced games, where they may be a slight less physicality (City, Spurs) he would be the best option to play as a 6 and would allow us to dominate the ball in midfield.


1.) 29 Aug 2018 19:05:57
I do have one grievance with wijnaldum. He occasionally just does not run back when he needs to bust a gut. He is getting better but occasionally the ball will be passed away from his area and the play moves forward quickly. From here he should be breaking his neck to get back to his next defensive position but instead casually strolls.

Again this is not always but especially at number 6 it needs to be never. It happened twice against Brighton luckily both times the ball went out left and Trent and Joe dealt with it. However if they had failed to win it back there was a free man 5 yards outside the area with wijnaldum 15 yards behind play. May seem knit picky but these are the things that can easily cost goals.

My question is this down to laziness, lack of concentration, poor understanding positionally I'm not sure. I would say concentration probably as I've seen him do it, so us capable and he does run a lot so I wouldn't say lazy either.

2.) 29 Aug 2018 19:11:41
Milner or Gini for me, two squad players who have really stepped up and shown that competition for places is alive and well currently. Fingers crossed this competition remains as it can only be a healthy thing for us as a team in terms of performance on the pitch.

3.) 29 Aug 2018 19:30:46
You've hit the nail on the head there ShaneK, good post mate!

4.) 30 Aug 2018 09:18:38
If only he could remove his mental cap and push he could really be a player for us . My fear is that he tends to relax once he gets comfortable while others around him improve.



03 Aug 2018 18:02:39
Ed’s, I know it’s not Liverpool related but one for the banter page if I may.

Don’t really get all the pre hype about Arsenal this season. Don’t get me wrong I felt they need a change from Wenger for the past 2/ 3 seasons, however are people really expecting that much of an improvement with a couple of decent players and the appointment of Unai Emery?

As I said, I do believe Arsenal needed a change, but I don’t think Unai will turn things around instantly. Hard to argue that Wenger was probably in decline but are people really naive enough to render him completely useless in his latter years? He pretty much run the club from the ground up, a sporting director almost. He obviously had already proved his manager prowess in England and don’t think many would try and dispute that. The added competitiveness of the premier league included with the big spenders coming through was probably his down fall. Seemed to lose his head in the press when facing Mourinho due to Mourinho being Mourinho. But this guy was a GREAT manager.

Unai Emery has obviously more recently managed PSG and Sevilla. Winning 3 back to back Europa League’s, and a Copa Del Rey runners up medal in the process, which is by no means an easy feat to achieve.

Where I have my doubts though lie in his away form at Sevilla. They failed to win a single game away from home in one of the La Liga seasons he was in charge. Adding to that, moving to PSG (probably inevitable of the easiest jobs in the world domestically) and failing to win the league title in one of his seasons, of course there are so many more underlying factors at the end of the day then just stats, but stats are also facts.

I do think they’ll do well this season mind, however I don’t see them breaking into the top the top 4, but a steady top 6 finish and they’ll be able to build on that the following season.

Just my opinion though so feel free to disagree :)


1.) 03 Aug 2018 18:57:37
I think they will do well. They have a nice team and a good manager.
B. Leno, Bellerin, Koscielny, S. Papasthathopoulos, Kolasinac, Torreira, Ramsey, Ozil, Mkhitaryan, Lacazzete and Aubameyang.

2.) 03 Aug 2018 19:41:30
I think Arsenal are in for a rough ride for the next few seasons, I do see them back up in the top 4 at some point but certainly not yet. Emery has to make the team his. Arsenal fans just need to be patient with his project and hope for the best, Emery as their new manager is a huge change so it will take some time.
I hope I'm wrong though, I'd rather see Arsenal in top 4 over any of the other teams apart from us of course.

A few of them names are average at best VakPa. Ozil is the stand out player they have the rest are very debatable.

3.) 03 Aug 2018 19:47:50
Their signings are a mix of unproven or nearly past it, maybe excluding Torreira, and their defence is still as soft as putty, Sokratis won’t solve that! I’m sure they will do their usual look good against rubbish teams and collapse later on.

4.) 03 Aug 2018 20:26:46
I totally agree with salah. I think the fans are in for a rude awakening. I think arsenal needed a change in manager although the way the fans went about pulling him down was despicible. The problem is deeper than that at arsenal. A lot of money was spent on that stadium and I think wenger steered them through choppy waters while keeping them in touch with the top 4.

They have some good players but they have a weak spine that will take a couple of transfer windows to strengthen.

The style of football will not be as attractive but they will probably win more games than last year. They are a bit behind city lfc utd and spurs/ Chelsea. They need to give the new man time.

5.) 03 Aug 2018 20:37:39
I think it will take them a good few years to get over loosing Wenger, look at United when Fergie finally left, still not recovered, I see the same happening at arsenal.

6.) 03 Aug 2018 22:21:41
I don’t see any similarity between Fergie and Wenger. Fergie knew when was the right time to step down and Wenger long outstayed his welcome.

Utd’s team was full of ageing players and needed a total revamp when Fergie left.

Arsenal’s starting 11 has Ozil, Mkhitaryan, Aubamayang, Lacazette, Torreira, Cech - it’s littered with high quality players and whilst I don’t think they’ll be up there for the title fight, people are wrong to write them off IMO.

7.) 03 Aug 2018 22:38:23
I hope Negative Walter doesn’t read this, he loves Arsenal!

8.) 03 Aug 2018 22:40:25
The big difference between Fergie to Moyes and Wenger to Emery is that of expectations.

Man Utd were champions, no-one wanted Fergie to leave.
Arsenal have become a stale FA cup team, have not made the top 4 for 2 seasons and a large portion of fans wanted change.

They are not expected to win the league next season, I think they will make top 4 to be honest.

9.) 03 Aug 2018 23:13:52
In a combined Liv-Ars team only Bellerin and maybe Koscielny would get a shirt. They probably will get a top 6 place, but could also end up 7-8 or so.

10.) 04 Aug 2018 05:48:47
Neither Bellerin or Koscielny would get close to our first 11, Bellerin has been rubbish for 2-3 seasons now.

11.) 04 Aug 2018 07:39:59
I can see Arsenal pushing Spurs hard for that 4th place this season. I'm a little surprised by Spurs lack of activity in the transfer market (so far) and I think they might come to regret that when everyone else around them has - seemingly - enhanced their squads.

12.) 04 Aug 2018 07:45:51
Lol AndyThorne, no Ozil? come on man.

13.) 04 Aug 2018 08:13:55
As it stands now I've got Arsenal finishing 2nd. There's not been enough transfers for me to change my mind yet.

{Ed001's Note - why Arsenal second? Iwobi, Xhaka, Mustafi, Lichsteiner, Bellerin, not one has a clue about defending. They are not a good team and Emery has a hell of a rebuilding job there.}

14.) 04 Aug 2018 09:08:30
Agree with Ed001 there - I've seen nothing in Arsenal's recruitment this window that pushes them above us or United this season.

15.) 04 Aug 2018 10:36:49
I think Emery will get them playing really well as a team. They have a very decent attack and I see them out scoring other teams. I can see a lot of wins by a goal or two.
I don't believe they will be blowing teams away 5-6 nil but still getting plenty of good results
Some of the players you mentioned edd I feel ain't that bad.
If Emery gets them playing their best I think they will show they have some quality.

16.) 04 Aug 2018 11:21:01
Özil, Salah? Would you play him over Mané? In a 442 diamond he might get the nod, but I like pace&trickery too much to not have Sadio there.

Maybe a 4231 could accomodate Özil, but, nah.

17.) 04 Aug 2018 15:19:24
negative, how many of their first 11 would you take over ours?



07 Jan 2018 15:08:29
What you think guys?

Replacing Coutinho, do you replace him with a like for like player, or replace his quality in the team?

We could bring in a player like Lemar who would contribute a similar goal and assist output to Coutinho and be a creative force in the midfield.

Or do you strengthen other areas? We've already brought in a CB, we could bring in a new keeper. Perhaps drop Firmino back into playing in the hole and bring in a more conventional striker. I know both Salah and Firmino will easily hit 20-30+ goals this season but would you want to bring in a out and out striker who is proven to score 20+ a season?

Just wondering as at the moment we have so many midfielders and replacing Coutinho will be really difficult by just changing him like for like. We play with a 3 man midfield, Naby Keita will be a shoe in for next season, can play in a 2 man midfield but needs a more defensive midfielder next to him, one which we don't currently have, so if we have a midfield of say, Keita, Hendo (most def minded midfielder we will have next season) and then you can choose one of Lallana, Ox, Wiji, Grujic.

I'm not sure myself just wanted your guys opinions.


1.) 07 Jan 2018 15:16:16
Please stop with this 20+ goals a season striker bullsh*ep. Such thing doesn't make any sence with the tactics we play. Just stop.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 15:18:31
Just keep building, keep strengthening the team.
This season Klopp has strengthened by buying Salah, Oxlade, VVD and Robertson and Keita is coming.
Early days for VVD but he’s an obvious improvement.
Robbo is making Moreno up his game.
Oxlade has looked very accomplished.
Salah is on fire.

Ok Coutinho has gone, keep strengthening the squad. I would look to improve the GK next.

3.) 07 Jan 2018 18:54:20
I'd like the balance in the team to bee addressed. A more natural CM to play in hendo's position. doesn't need to be a CDM, just someone who has a more natural instinct defensively. Ideal player but not surr if we in for him is ndidi. I'd then like to see hendo played in one of the box to box CM positions as part of that rotation.

Then add quality depth to the front 3. Ideal player and again not sure if we are in for him would be pulusic.

{Ed002's Note - My understanding is that Ndidi didn't do it did he?}



05 Jan 2018 23:36:30
Watched the Ox very closely a since his arrival, I've been very impressed with his energy and his closing down and driving with the ball. Every time I've watched him play midfield he plays a similar role to which Wijnaldum plays, which he is very good at. His pressing in the midfield is very similar to what Lallanas was last season winning the ball high up the pitch and being able to break straight away with options ahead of him. I'd say he's definitely an upgrade on Wiji who is a solid player but Ox in midfield is essential in some of the games he has played there, him running at defences opens so much space for the front 3. A midfield of Ox Hendo/ Can Coutinho would be perfect for me. Not to mention his crossing from dead ball situations.

However when I've watched him play on the wing, I haven't been impressed, always making the wrong decision, being ineffective and just wasteful at times. I don't really see how he is progressed in that area since his teens.

Could be a top midfielder or a poor winger in my eyes.


1.) 05 Jan 2018 23:49:24
I prefer him in midfield to on the wing too, he seems surprisingly good at winning the ball back and I think he’s more effective coming from a deep position.

2.) 05 Jan 2018 23:55:07
Just seen that firmino maybe involved in racial slur too holgate hope not.

{Ed025's Note - all a load of crap if you ask me mate..

3.) 05 Jan 2018 23:59:34
Ox is playing better under Klopp in 4 months than he has done at the Wenger School of Extra-oridnary Stagnation for the past 4 seasons. Ox is coming good as we speak and the gooners must be having nightmares right now.

4.) 06 Jan 2018 00:07:16
He lacks quality. He has a goal record of one in ten, and it is the reason Arsenal sold him instead of their better players.

5.) 06 Jan 2018 00:20:24
He doesn't score, he doesn't assist but he runs around a lot. He will fit in great in this team.

6.) 06 Jan 2018 00:40:19
Doesn’t score, doesn’t assist and yet has 3 goals and 2 assists in 9 starts.

7.) 06 Jan 2018 12:22:00
If only there was a stat for 'assist of an assist of an assist, or 'attacks started leading to key chances' or 'key tackles - offensive' (not defensive key tackles' he'd probably have a fair few of those lol
I myself prefer him in midfield too.
He has something we will miss when Couts goes which is willingness to run AT defenders and shake them up.

And he has 1 powerful long shot. Has rarely been effective from the wide positions so maybe through the center he will be able to maximise a chance, improve his aim and strike with lethal force 😂.



23 Dec 2017 00:31:52
It's not often you throw away a 2 goal lead in less than 5 minutes but tonight, most of the boys were excellent.

Migs was shocking again, at fault for one goal and I honestly believe if Karius started he'd have saved the first one too; he likes to rush out and make himself big which it would have made it much harder to score and any premier league keeper should be stopping the second. 3rd was a deft finish but it was so easy for them.

Young Joe Gomez at fault for a couple himself but he performed well most of the game and he's still learning the game, he's not an out and out right back by any stretch.

Felt Lovren and Klavan were good, Robertsons crossing was breathtaking at times and wasn't troubled much defensively. The pressing in the first half alone was too much for Arsenals midfield to handle and our attacking play was brilliant.

We score a goal and take a foot off and Arsenals first spell of the game, which lasted 5 minutes, saw them go 3-2 up, and there wasn't much we'd done wrong collectively (Gomez and Mignolet errors) but the rest of the team performed well, even Joe Gomez who's mistake (s) unfortunately leading to a goal or two.

We limited Arsenal to very limited clear opportunities they just managed to score the majority of the them and not for some last ditch interceptions and blocks we could have had the game finished in the first half.

We should have held onto the game yes, but I felt we didn't perform badly it's just errors letting us down.


1.) 23 Dec 2017 00:53:27
the third goal was pathetic. Can being lazy as usual, just letting ozil jog through. And the goal keeping for the 3rd was worse than the second. as mignolet went down in instalments. Absolutely pathetic, was like he wanted to get out the way which made ozils mind up for him.

2.) 23 Dec 2017 00:56:39
Completely agree dominated the game scored good goals should have scored more but once again we were let down by worse than schoolboy errors, time for Simon to be dropped or sold now.

3.) 23 Dec 2017 01:03:57
"Robertsons crossing was breathtaking" huh? Moreno would be getting crucified right for that pass robbo gave straight to an arsenal player near our box.

Terrible terrible errors today. Migs did something I'd not seen him do for a while, and that is falling as the ball is being shot. 1st and 3rd goals, both times he's not goven homself a ch.

4.) 23 Dec 2017 01:04:21
Oops thw rest of that post to Mr C, is "he doesn't give himself a chance.

5.) 23 Dec 2017 04:02:14
I thought he team as a whole wa a good Gomez mad wine error (he’s young and still learning) but Mignolet cost us. He messes up and they know he’s awful so gives them even more confidence to attack.

Fencey, Couts, Furmino, Lallana, Wiji, Origi, Solanke are all capable of playing out wide and add to that Wilson, Brannagan and Ojo who can also play out wide too.

MK I usually respect your opinions, although I don't always agree with them, but some of the tripe you've been posting the last couple of weeks, I wonder if you've been hacked by Harry. Namely Keita but also with VVD, when did you become so knowledgeable on player valuations? Do you have a contract working on a transfer comitee we aren't aware of? Keita is no improvement to our midfield bar maybe Lallana, based on what?
I'm not 100% sure I'm correct on this but I think I remember you posting when we were first linked that you've never even watched the boy. As I said not 100% sure if that was you who said it.
You made similar requests to VVD I recall as you were saying the only benefit he will give out team is his height. Not his calmness on the ball? Not his strength? Not his speed, I know he's not the finished article but he's miles ahead of what we have at the back.

Ed I know your opinion on the matter may have as much ground to it as mine due to you being unable to read the players mind.
But do you see any chance of him staying say if he were to be used as much as he possibly can this season and we win a cup and do well in the league hypothetically. I feel if he felt he was valued and one of the first names on the team sheet he would be happy to stay. Someone above mentioned it will be more difficult for him to play when Keita comes, which is hard to argue, but I can see Coutinho leaving by next summer and Can could find himself playing in a 2 man midfield with Keita or a three with Keita and another.
I've always rated Can ever since we've bought him, know he wasn't brilliant at times last year, but at times he actually was brilliant. Always seen the potential in him. remember Ed02 saying when we signed him that an opinion of an ex German Intertational midfielder (always thought he was referring to Ballack) is that he could become one of the best central midfielders in the world, or along them lines. Think everyone's starting to see how good Can can be, and consistently so far this season. Would be more than a shame to lose him.


{Ed001's Note - I am sure there is a chance, but he needs to picked over other players, rather than just getting his chance because of injuries. He knows Klopp has gone out and bought other players for his position on a number of occasions in a bid to replace him. Klopp needs to make it clear that they are not to replace him unless he allows them to.}
