Has Oblak signed a contract extension? Read somewhere that he has and release clause is now $200m but according to transfermarkt. com, he hasn't (although maybe it needs to be updated)

Nulty

1.) 28 May 2018 03:07:26
We are not going to buy Oblak or Allisson!


2.) 28 May 2018 09:21:55
Butland or Navas is coming in according to 2 key people on this site. Oblak and Allisson are not happening.


3.) 28 May 2018 10:14:09
Navas is a shockingly poor keeper. As bad as Claudio Bravo and look how he got on.


4.) 28 May 2018 15:22:32
TBH, I've not watched Navas enough to comment but he has a nice list of honours to his name, something our current GK options don't have a lot of.


5.) 28 May 2018 15:42:28
Claudio Bravo have a nice list of honours. In fact so does Phil Neville. It doesn’t mean a thing, you could put a dog egg in goal for Madrid and chances are they’d win a trophy. The facts are the Navas is very error prone as has been proven over the last few years, this year his mistakes have been shocking, Madrid are desperate to replace him. He is not at all any better than the keepers we already have, bar Bogdan, and isn’t worth the £30+ that Madrid want for him. I wouldn’t make any judgment on him based on the fact that we lost to Madrid. There were two shots on target and he let in one of those.

{Ed002's Note - Navas was Klopp's choice.}


6.) 28 May 2018 16:14:12
I know Ed. I’m still none the wiser as to why. Maybe he needs new glasses? I’m hoping that Michael Edwards has some ideas!

{Ed002's Note - Oblak is not moving to Liverpool. Liverpool has no interest in Oblak at.}


7.) 28 May 2018 18:52:54
I can’t see that in a million years either Ed.


 

 

28 Apr 2018 12:04:15
Any truth in he rumours we are looking at Chiesa from Fiorentina? Last update from the Ed’s was that ‘we may have looked at him’. Looks a great prospect as well as one for now.

Nulty

{Ed001's Note - he is being monitored but I believe it to be a case of an option if we were to lose Salah, rather than being prepared for this summer.}


1.) 28 Apr 2018 22:28:41
Enrico Chiesa? He must be at at least 50 now.

{Ed001's Note - he has kept himself in good shape though.}


2.) 29 Apr 2018 02:25:09
He's Enrico's son.


3.) 29 Apr 2018 16:07:16
Is he any good ed?

{Ed001's Note - supposed to be, not seen him play though.}


 

 

04 Dec 2016 06:32:58
Any interest in Alexis Sanchez? Is he not out of contract at the end of next season and fits Klopps system. He might find the revolution at Anfield enticing.

Nulty

{Ed001's Note - except that he had no interest in joining us to replace Suarez, as he wanted to go to London. I really do not expect that to have changed. If he leaves Arsenal, it is more likely he would go back to Italy or Spain. Or perhaps PSG.}


1.) 04 Dec 2016 07:43:07
Dreaming much?


2.) 04 Dec 2016 11:26:29
Would be a huge loss for Arsenal if he left, he's just incredible. I'd of loved to of seen him in a Liverpool shirt, i'm almost jealous of Arsenal having him but if he didn't want the move to us then fair enough. - Maybe we should offer Sturridge for him? haha.

Arsenal may look good at the moment but something about them reminds me of how we was a few years ago, relying on 1-2 players, without these players (Ozil and Sanchez) I don't think they'd be anwhere near us. Atleast Liverpool have a complete squad who are all looking excellent, or the majority anyway.


3.) 04 Dec 2016 13:27:39
Juventus maintain firm interest and this goes bavk to his time at Udinese. Sanchez could consider it seriously as huge have more chance at trophies than Arsenal.


 

 

23 Mar 2014 11:32:14
What is the latest with Reges, Montoya, Valdes and Raul Garcia? These guys all are highly rated yet not snapped up by a top club. A few if not all these guys would add quality to the club (although I understand the salaries would be an issue).
Also, the papers are saying we are interested in Shaw. Assuming this is paper nonsense but do yous have any info. I would rather spend 20 plus million on a player who is young, proven and would be a permanent fixture in the side for the next 5-10 years rather than wasting 8-10 on guys like aspas, alberto etc.
We need 4-5 quality first team players to allow us to challenge in the league and CL next season as let's be honest, Utd, Arsenal, city and chelsea will all spend big (especially if they don't win the league).

Congrats to the team for there performance this season. Even if we don't win the league, we should be proud of pushing city and chelsea to the very end despite spending a fraction of the fees.

Nulty

1.) Forget Montoya he just signed a new deal with Barca last week. Think it was a 3 or 4 year contract extension

Did anyone else notice that when Palace had the free kick which Allison made a great save, Van Dijks reaction? Milivojevic hits the free kick over the wall, the rest of the wall watch the flight of the ball as it passes over them towards goal. Van Dijk remains to look forward and doesn’t react as if he’s confidant that the keeper will save it! When he hears the crowds reaction he knows the keeper done his job! I might be deluded but thought this was very interesting and tells me he has confidence on what’s behind him to make the save. Give it a rewatch.

Nulty

{Ed0333's Note - shouldn’t he be watching the ball so if there’s a rebound or Allison spills it VVD as the senor defender should be looking to get it out of danger area.


1.) 24 Aug 2018 07:19:03
Soon as the ball has gone over the wall it should break and get ready for any 2nd balls.


2.) 24 Aug 2018 12:23:00
i think you're reading what you want to into that situation mate.


3.) 24 Aug 2018 14:22:51
Let everyone watch the flight of the ball while VVD keeps his eyes on any attackers following up. Good defending if that was the case imo.


 

 

21 Jul 2018 12:35:11
Thought it was great that Mane has been given the number 10. Although a small gesture, I believe it’s Liverpool’s small way of showing their appreciation for this good form. Always thought the picture of him and Salah with the number 10 was a great touch. This is going to be an amazing season for us.

Nulty

 

 

25 Jun 2018 10:53:21
I wonder if Werner has been looked at? With Firmino’s versatility, they could rotate at the front with Firmino dropping back to AM and compete with Fekir (fingers crossed) . Still think we also need a quality winger to compete/ rotate with Mane/ Salah. Gelson Martins anyone? On a free, quality, young and has been strongly considered previously. Add Allison to the mix and job done. It’s so easy on paper.

Nulty

1.) 25 Jun 2018 11:51:53
Martin's hasn't been released from his contract yet. It's still got to be finalised. Not a bad about and we might be wai5iny on that one before going for another winger and commuting away more funds from maybe a primary target.

Do not think we will ever want to deal with rb again.

I think we do have to look at the front four as no lock in with regards to positions. Aslong as there starting. There going to be effective anywhere across the board.


2.) 25 Jun 2018 12:50:29
Gelson martins will end up being very expensive for the team brace enough to take him, he will want a big signing on fee, agents fees and whatever the courts rule on how much sporting should recieve (unknown) but I would imagine the will take his buy out clause into consideration which is masssive.


3.) 25 Jun 2018 13:13:04
Werner would likely want first team football and cost a fortune. Not sure why we'd want to spend so much just to move Bobby (a stand out from last year) from his preferred position? Bobby also plays a vital role allowing Salah and Mane to run in behind, Given that Werner likes to run in behind himself I can't see it working. Great player though. Fingers crossed for Fekir.


4.) 25 Jun 2018 13:49:53
Brace yourselves for my unpopular opinion of the day, but I still don't know what people see in Werner. He is not a special talent in my opinion. He's very lucky that a team has been built around him at a young age, but I don't see a supreme talent. He's like a poor man's Michael Owen.

His finishing is erratic at times, he doesn't play with his head up, his touch is average, and his decision making is average. He is at a similar level to Jamie Vardy as an all around footballer and would cost close to our transfer record.

The more I see of him, I just don't see him becoming the great player everyone seems to be tipping him to become. If you built a top 5 team around Solanke or Origi in the Bundesliga and gave them 3000 minutes of football, I reckon they'd both get 13 league goals no bother. Werner will be a good striker but he'll never be worth what he'd cost right now, in my opinion of course.


5.) 25 Jun 2018 14:38:28
Well said mk. You actually used my thought re Owen. He might turn out good but at this moment in time we should keep clear and check his progress over the coming seasons.


6.) 25 Jun 2018 14:47:04
Not so unpopular MK. I do agree with most of what you've said, and I prefer my CFs a little taller and bigger. I think people are just swayed by his younge age, otherwise he doesn't offer much beyond most of the CFs in the top teams. Do I see him being the next Klose or Lewandowski? Nope.


7.) 25 Jun 2018 15:14:38
Oh wow, surprised but pleased to hear a few others agree! I just think strikers need to offer a lot more nowadays to play at the highest level. For me, his level is 4th-8th place in the Premier League, Serie A, Bundesliga or La Liga.


8.) 25 Jun 2018 15:47:55
I'm not sure my opinion of him is quite as harsh as that MK but I do agree he's not a ready made star. I think he is at a crossroads in his career - he's a talented boy but without the natural talent to become a superstar. Will he double down, work his socks off, do everything his coaches ask of him and make himself into a star? Or will he coast on his belief in his own ability, assume that he'll keep improving and maturing and trust the lack of competition for the first striker for Germany to keep him in the limelight as a sought after striker? Only time will tell but for a team that cannot afford more super-expensive mistakes, I do agree that pursuing him would be a mistake and don't think he'd be able to move Bobby from that top spot at the moment.


9.) 25 Jun 2018 17:09:28
We have one of the world's finest centre forwards. There is no way we are going to sign a huge name to fight Bobby for the starting role. We have our first 11 (almost) gk and am still needed. Other signings will be squad players.


10.) 25 Jun 2018 18:50:54
It's clear to me that Werner isn't good enough. Just look at the Germany team. He's surrounded by some of the best midfielders in the world, but they still have to wait for an aging Mario Gomez to come on before they even look like scoring.


11.) 25 Jun 2018 20:48:58
Mk

From what i've seen of werner before and at the world cup i tend to agree with your points simply because of what he would cost.

I by no means have watched numerous amounts of full games he has played. So based on what i have seen here we go. I stand corrected on anything people feel im getting vaststly wrong but its just my opinion on a small sample base of games that i've seen im play.

While i can see were your coming from about his overall game to be fair to the lad his biggest flaws in decision making and playing with his head up will or should get better as he gets older.

Just to play advocate in terms of what he would bring to us i think he runs the lines quite well and he looks like he would do quite well in an interchanging front 3. He has blistering pace too which would be scary when added to salah or mane with both or with one or the other with bobby there too.

I also think from what i've seen of him he ain't extemely selfish (kane selfish i mean) either which would be appreciated greatly in our love fest of a front line.

At 22 he still has plently of room for improvement and playing in a front 3 with two other world class attackers would most likely see him improve naturally.

I think he would be deployed starting at right and left foward for us if he were to sign. don't think he would get near the central striker position.

But like your said qualites compared to cost don't add up in this one. If he was in the 35 to 55 range it might be worth it but the 80 or 90 range is just madness for where he's at at the present time.

Its a good post in terms of bringing peoples opinions in on a player. The player doesn't have to be on the definate radar for his qualities to be discussed in terms of what people think he would or wouldn't bring to the team.


12.) 25 Jun 2018 21:25:56
MK, don't be surprised that many agree with you on the Werner tip and nothing you posted is unpopular. Having watched RBL a lot this season (to keep tabs on Naby), I saw a lot of Werner as well and he is as you described. Erratic, indecisive, poor touch and at the level we wanna play at, still rough around the edges. In fact, he spent a while on the bench last season behind the young, talented and promising Frenchman Jean-Kevin Augustin who is pretty good, mind you. Werner is not who we need, would command a HUGE fee and would not come here and sit behind Bobbie. That just ain't going to happen. Origi had a rough season at Wolfsburg (three managers in one season) YET still managed to score 7/ 8 goals and Solanke still has a lot to prove so if we can't get a decent back up for Bobbie then go with them cos at least, they both know the system.


13.) 25 Jun 2018 23:54:05
Everytime I've seen Werner I am not impressed either, seems to play better wider when he has chance to get the ball under control first - but that wouldn't suit our quick play. Plus he'd offer little defensively. He would suit a team like Bayern who have a lot of possession as he can beat a man in little space, but picking up a moving ball, holding off a defender and getting a shot away, doesn't seem like anything he's comfortable with.


14.) 26 Jun 2018 01:47:03
I recall a while ago it being mentioned that the kid is happy on with his employers and equally so are they with him. Already on decent wages makes me wounder how much we would need to offer him to consider coming to us and probably join another high profile striker in Stud on the bench. Just when we seemed to get it right with Bobby we want him to accommodate a very fast kid who's might not hit the ground running by asking him (Bobby) to play in position he started with when joining us. Sorry not bashing the idea but just don't see it happening.


15.) 26 Jun 2018 11:25:38
Den82 if he has his contract rescinded then sporting won't be due anything as i understand it as he is no longer contracted to the club which would need to be formally sanctioned anyway.

Could be wrong but I suspect if the contract is cancelled any part of it is no longer relevant.


 

 

14 Jun 2018 06:18:57
With the French league being heavily scouted (assumed with both Fekir and Fabinho), I am surprised there has been no mention of Alban Lafont to solve the gk position. Young and highly rated. His stock will rise over the next few years.

Nulty

1.) 14 Jun 2018 07:05:45
Good young keeper with buckets of experience, he has been in the first team since he was a teenager.


2.) 14 Jun 2018 07:20:02
I asked about him a couple of weeks ago and Ed002 gave this reply:

"Ed002's Note - Yes it looks like he is moving but it is nothing to do with Liverpool. }"

Upon probing, the team in question is Crystal Palace, although the deal isn't done yet.

I asked about him mainly because I often get him when playing CM16 and he turns into a great keeper!


3.) 14 Jun 2018 07:34:34
I’m surprised we’re not looking at him. It would be negligent not to, particularly if we aren’t prepared to pay for the likes of Oblak or Becker. As he’s miles ahead of the likes of Pope and Butland and light years ahead of the likes of Trapp, Cillessen and Navas. I have this sickening feeling that we’ll waste a bucket load of money on someone like Navas or Cillessen and end up with the same problems next year and be stuck with a 30 something keeper who is incapable of playing in the premier league.


4.) 14 Jun 2018 07:50:29
Do people actually watch him? Or just rated from computer games?


5.) 14 Jun 2018 07:55:11
Can’t disagree with you there Frankly, although I tend to ignore the rumours and see what we actually end up doing as Klopp in the transfer market with us hasn’t had many misses.

I actually can see the merit in Butland, as he is young enough, and imposing enough to be mouldedto got our system, albeit anecdotally I don’t have much faith in our GK coach. A couple of years ago he was a clear No 1 prospect for England and I liked the look of him. If he comes to us and can rediscover that form, I think he could do very good things.


6.) 14 Jun 2018 08:25:35
Klopp Mania, I haven't watched him, hence my question in to the site a couple of weeks to garner the opinions of people who have.


 

 

27 May 2018 05:09:17
Thought we played well and couldn’t fault any of the outfield players. Lovren was superb and passionate in his play. Robertson never stopped and the midfield worked tirelessly. Mane was superb and ran and ran. The lack of quality depth was the real issue as Can and Lallana has barely kick a ball over the last few months and cannot be criticised. The concern all season was if we lost one of the front 3, especially Salah, we would be lost and unfortunately that was the case. Guys should be proud and the fact everybody is disappointed is a great thing as we know there was a real opportunity to win it. We go again next year. Let’s get out quality targets. Fekir, Allison, Dembele and go for a world class CB and MF. No more skrimping. Pay the money for quality and we challenge on all fronts next year.

Nulty

1.) 27 May 2018 05:30:55
I agree on the performances but you can hardly say no more scrimping when we paid £75 mill for VVD and to be honest I believe him and lovren along with Robertson and TAA will make a very solid back 4. But there is obvious room for improvement in midfield and in goal and then back up for the front 3 or a challenger for one of their spots. If Klopp doesn’t have the confidence to put on Solanke when Salah goes off or when we were 2 goals down then that says it all for me.


2.) 27 May 2018 07:45:46
Fair enough. Just mean that we could get a mediocre keeper like Butland for $30m plus OR a worldly who will win us 20-25 points a season and make he important save when we need it for $75-$100. We are close to doing special things. There a reason they guys at stoke and not at a big club. Go and get Oblak or Allison or Courtois. Someone at that calibre.


3.) 29 May 2018 23:20:20
I’m completely with you on that. If you want to win competitions you can’t be sentimental, Karius has been an improvement on mignolet but there are plenty Of keepers better than him. I know the Ed’s don’t think Oblak will suit our style but I think he’s a great keeper, or Allison who I’ve seen little of but obviously he’s highly regarded. The same goes for the midfield Milner, Gini, Henderson have done very well this season but how many can you say are honestly top top class good enough to expect to challenge for titles. Keita and now Fabinho seem like very positive additions. So everything to be positive about for next season.

‘We make players world class’. Let’s keep ‘making world class players’ and winning nothing in the meantime! Once they become world class they then move onto Real or Barca! We need to move with the times. Buy a world class keeper and let’s challenge for titles.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Reality is Klopp watches his players daily and is in a better position to judge. We lost, we will recover and hopefully use this as a great catalyst to go again. Onwards and upwards.

Don’t understand the tension between Ed002 and Macca. Both provide valuable insight and opinion. Can’t we all just get along?!?! Ha
Hopefully the Butland and Tarkowski links are false. Much rather Allison and a quality CB. Fekir and Dembele are top notch so we should be aiming for this quality in the GK and CB area also.

Players come and go, it’s part of football. We should be aiming to have a squad of players that if one moves on, we have others who can fill in. We should not be reliant to one player as we have been over the years (Gerrard, Torres, Suarez now Salah) . Although we had other good players around them, these 4 seemed to be almost dragging the club over the line (especially Gerrard) . We are on the cusp of something great and with a few quality signings, the team as a whole will be great, not just one player.
