Not trying to put a downer on that result, but can people remember we only have a 3 goal lead if we score 2 in Rome.
They go through next week if they win 3 nil, clearly that isn't a 3 goal lead.
Our 5-2 lead is currently the equivalent of a 2 nil lead for now.
I'd have taken that before tonight if offered it so.

ye i think we all get that. hope the lads go to Rome confident, they should.


2.) 25 Apr 2018 02:20:36
Kev my head hurts. If we score two in Rome we have two away goals as well and we have a 5 goal lead.


3.) 25 Apr 2018 07:04:20
Best way to explain it is Liverpool 5 roma 2.5

😂.


4.) 25 Apr 2018 07:11:44
Already got this wrong on another thread! If we score 2 in Rome we have 7. Roma would need 5 just to draw I. e matching last nights result.


5.) 25 Apr 2018 11:39:21
I’m not worrying, Roma are not going to keep a clean sheet against us, they are going to have to go all out attack against us and will leave space at the back for our runners to get in behind, runners they can’t seem to handle.
It’s similar to the city game, few nervy moments but we will score, at least once, maybe twice and they won’t put more than 2 past us.


6.) 25 Apr 2018 11:45:43
however if they win 2-0 they do not go through.

so is 2.5 goal lead the right terminology we should be using?

A mate of mine who lives in Germany has told me that we had scouts watching Karim Demerbay (spelling is probably wrong) of Hoffenheim very recently.

He is a Turkish-German lad who has turned out for Germany a few times. He's very technical and has wicked left footed free kicks. Not blessed with pace but can dribble well and a pretty powerful left foot.

I remember some of his indirect free kicks caused us problems (as well as our overly high line) in the Champions League play offs.

Not sure if this is a Lallana long term replacement being looked at if true, doubt it's to replace Coutinho but we'll see.

OIrish Kev 1

1.) 09 Jan 2018 18:08:24
Kev I know exactly the guy your on about while he does stand out in his previous team I'm not sure he's what we need pal and I'm not sure how long he's been there would he have played there with Bobby?


2.) 09 Jan 2018 18:16:05
i Think we looked into him in the summer if I remember correctly but he lost his form from last season. Tbf he had a good season last year, nothing more and I’d say he is a) not what we need and b) not good enough.

Also i don’t think he will develop into a great player anytime soon and his stats (14 games, 2 goals, 1 assist) aren’t the best for a offensive midfielder.


3.) 09 Jan 2018 18:47:21
No worries guys.
Haven't seen enough of him personally, I'd be underwhelmed if we got him to tell the truth.
I could see he was quite technical and has good set pieces but after that, meh!
Would rather a more physically gifted player personally to fill a Central Midfielder role.


4.) 09 Jan 2018 17:30:27
'Not blessed with pace".
Forget it. Let's not even go there again.

Hey ed025, are you Joe Anderson in disguise? :-)

{Ed025's Note - no juicer, if i was then the blues would be in their new stadium now mate..


5.) 09 Jan 2018 19:04:40
Aren’t Everton linked with him now?


6.) 09 Jan 2018 20:08:38
Meant the alleged Barkley letter ed025, you were a touch upset about the transfer the other day. Everton have been had over there by the looks of it?

{Ed025's Note - i think its something and nothing juicer, joe seems to have a bee in his bonnet about it but i cant see what chelsea have done wrong mate..

Isn't it crazy the amount of sheer rubbish written on football websites or on newspapers about potential transfers?!

How has there not been a crackdown on it?
It seems to get worse year on year.
Fake news lol!

About 20 to 30 players linked to us already this summer - hilarious really!

Then the newer click bait rubbish such as - "Liverpool tie up 2nd Summer transfer already. " only to see it's an out of contract youth player leaving the club - it's actually quite desperate of these particular websites.

OIrish Kev 1

1.) 21 May 2018 16:30:13
I’ve only seen us linked with 2-3 players this summer so if you have seen 20-30 then you must be looking in the wrong places. I’m not sure that the newspapers and websites are the problem, it’s more the gullible people who fall for these transfer stories time and time again.


2.) 21 May 2018 16:51:41
Have a look at the newsnow website. Compiler of headlines and articles from everywhere. Every 15 minutes there's new rubbish or regurgitation of other rubbish. Used to be a good reference some years ago.


3.) 21 May 2018 16:52:18
It's more social media, normally one story can be traced to a single account, but because so many people have shared it it becomes 'fact' and before you know it ends up a 'sky source' just in case it happens to be correct.


4.) 21 May 2018 16:53:57
True Kev, it's barmy mate. I just can't wait till it's done and dusted so we can see who we've signed in total, I hate all the daft rumours.


5.) 21 May 2018 17:41:44
I love all the daft rumours. It's a bit of fun. I wonder how many big transfers have happened that started out as a nonsense rumour but grown and then actually happened. Can anyone think of any?


6.) 21 May 2018 17:49:07
ArAy1969,
That's exactly what I meant mate yeah - Newsnow - it used to be a great help, now it only serves the clickbait purpose.

Smeg Head,
Honestly not sure how you've only read about 2 - 3 players mate.
Butland, Donnanruma, the 2 CBs I can't spell from Newcastle and Burnley :), Nabil Fekir, Brandt, the other winger from Leverkusen, De Vrij, the youth player midfielder from Chelsea, Lemar from Monaco - do you want me to keep going?


7.) 21 May 2018 17:50:18
I’ll save you the aggro, don’t bother with anywhere else bar this mate👍👍.


8.) 21 May 2018 17:53:29
WYred,
You could well be right there mate.
A colleague of mine who has over 1k followers on Twitter put up a rumour last summer that VVD would sign on last day of window and it went wild because he pretended to be a reporter for ESPN i think it was.

I think Melissa Reddy and Paul Joyce are pretty relaible on there and one guy whose name escapes me right now, other than that - I believe when I see.

Obviously the lad Macca and the Editors on here have some inside info too or are psychic at least :)


9.) 21 May 2018 18:04:27

Mario Balotelli to LFC is one I reckon mate.

I only follow WDS on twitter, you can’t rely on anyone else 🤝.


11.) 21 May 2018 19:49:44
Kev- De Vrij has already signed with Inter and gifted them a pen to help them into the champions league place.


12.) 21 May 2018 21:53:59
Cobra, good for Inter to know that they are already getting a great return on their investment in De Vrij even tho he is yet to kick a ball for them.


 

 

20 May 2018 09:02:58
I'm an optimist, so yes please to Mr Fekir if he wants to join us.

A GK, RB or CB and DM next and I'm happy, plus replace anyone significant who leaves ideally as the squad is pretty thin.

Get this window right and next season could be quite interesting! :)

OIrish Kev 1

1.) 20 May 2018 09:18:54
Please stop saying DM. We ain't signing one anytime soon. Klopp wants a DLP, not a pure DM. And forget about CB as well. Klopp like Lovren and will keep him as VVD's partner next season.
Fekir
A RB
DLP
Keita

These 4 signings will be Klopp's summer business imo.


2.) 20 May 2018 09:33:14
Agree with Buzzer, but think Butland or another keeper will join also.


3.) 20 May 2018 09:38:01
Not striker?


4.) 20 May 2018 09:48:06
Would like Reina over someone like Butland though. Would cost less and Karius could get some helpful tips from Reina on how to be the ideal sweeper keeper. Butland would just shatter the confidence of some of our talented young GKs like Grabara.


5.) 20 May 2018 12:20:02
And how is Ceballos a DLP Indian! Stop giving this lecture. We are not linked with any true DLP. Ceballos is the next Wijnaldum. Converted midfielder.


6.) 20 May 2018 12:32:02
Harry, I did not mention Ceballos anywhere in my post and at no point of time have I ever said Ceballos would be a good option for DLP. Like many, I believe Ceballos lacks the discipline and awareness to play the role and is better off as an advanced midfielder.
Would like one of Jorginho or Neves to be our DLP, not Ceballos.


7.) 20 May 2018 12:48:01
You have said Klopp wants a DLP Indian and the only midfielder we are linked with is Ceballos and this page has already established him as the successor of Alonso! The fact is we are doing what we did an year ago! Buy Wijnaldum and play him somewhere else to suit our requirements.
You are right about Ceballos. He lacks discipline and is not a good passer of the ball. He is a Lallana and Lallana itself can't find a place in our midfield. We don’t need anymore advanced midfielder.


8.) 20 May 2018 13:08:16
Hang on Harry, I thought Ceballos was the next Lallana? Now he is the next Wijnaldum?

I honestly don't believe you've ever watched him because you can't even be consistent. It's like your throwing handfuls of waste, hoping some of it will stick.


9.) 20 May 2018 13:24:27
He is totally different to Lallana and Wijnaldum. They both started as left wingers and converted to attacking midfielders.

Ceballos started as a central midfielder, and due to his versatility has covered on the left and behind a striker. He us still a midfielder by nature though.

The three strongest aspects to his game are tackling, shielding the ball, and dribbling out of tight situations. He is an unorthodox midfielder, but of all the players we've had in the last few years, the closest we've had to Ceballos was probably Joe Allen. Ceballos is essentially a superior version of Allen. In Spain, they have dubbed him the next Modric.

He can play line splitting passes and switch the play, but I admit he doesn't have the vision and passing range to loft a perfectly weighted pass in behind like a Jorginho/ Pirlo type player, or to hit a raking diagonal in behind the full back. But he defends much better than either of those guys ever have, and shields the ball better when he is pressured. Not every DLP has to be able to bend a perfect pass in behind the defence.

Ceballos will be tasked with bringing the ball out from the back with composure, and feeding one of Keita, Ox or Fekir who can then break on the opposition at pace. Klopp is building a counter pressing system. He has repeatedly called our tactics "counter pressing" in multiple interviews. He doesn't want 70% possession like City, and a pass master dictating the game. He wants to draw the opposition out, and pounce on mistakes at scintillating pace.


10.) 20 May 2018 13:24:36
Harry, we have also been linked to Jorginho and Neves. Both are DLPs. I still don't think we will be signing Ceballos. He will stay in La liga imo.


11.) 20 May 2018 13:30:09
Cmon MK Wijnaldum is an example of how we buy a player and play him somewhere whe he has hardly played before. And why do you think you are the only source for player info? Type his name on google and you get 756 sites to dig about him. Ceballos is not a Deep lying playmaker. Now do you want to play him there? That’s upto the manager. He could play him anywhere just like he played Milner and Wijnaldum in the holding role. Would he do a job? Not as good as someone who actually play there. Do you want to repeat the henderosn saga for another year?
I was reffering to Indian who claims we are after a DLP. I don’t know who! Do you know? We are not after any DLP. We are after Ceballos! Please stop calling him a DLP.


12.) 20 May 2018 14:17:09
MK

Ceballos Shields the defense!
No he doesn’t MK. That is just a wish! His strength ( a few you have mentiond while a few you are exaggerating ) lie s elsewhere.

Our midfield three should be
Kieta - Fekir - Holding mid / DLP / DM / Positoonaly sound CM / Old school Souness / Alonso.


 

 

13 May 2018 16:54:07
Well done boys!
Top 4 secured.

As a side thought, wouldn't say no to Fabianski from Swansea if Mignolet leaves and Karius keeps the number 1 role.

Cannot wait for the 26th now!

Hope you all have recovered from the slightly nervous night last night.

I honestly am delighted like most of you that we made it to this final.

I just honestly do not know what to say however about our ability to defend when under some pressure, it is awful to watch at times (think of a slow motion car crash) - it's no coincidence that we keep conceding late goals - our game management is so bloody awful.

We looked like we were the ones chasing the win last night - forcing the ball forward at times in such unnecessary circumstances, even the most experienced players were doing it and then poor concentration in pretty easy situations like Alexander Arnold and Karius for goal 2 - that was simply shocking - Arnold was 100% targeted again last night and not helped by teammates many times - this needs to be addressed before Ronaldo gets at him.

Been reading comments from Roma officials this morning that they should have had 3 or 4 penalties last night - 2 maybe, but 3 or 4 no imo.

We should have had at least one ourselves last night when Mane was clearly pushed early in the game, their right back could well have received a straight red for a scissors tackle on Mane - the point is, both sides weren't given certain decisions.

The two pens they received were 50-50 at best, we've had much clearer shouts for penalties turned away recently, so they have little to moan about.

We can be delighted with reaching the final though, we're so lucky to have such a strong attack - the best in Europe surely.

OIrish Kev 1

1.) 03 May 2018 08:41:53
The Klavan penalty was an absolute disgrace. Only penalties in the game last night was one on mane and taa handball. But who cares we are through and deserve to be. We gifted them there 1st 2 goals and ref gifted them a penalty for 4th and we still won with a goal to spare.


2.) 03 May 2018 08:54:59
We also deserved a penalty when mane was pushed in the box. That was a clear penalty too. don't know why even the pundits would not discuss it.


 

 

25 Apr 2018 21:52:47
Didn't see the game tonight, but if we get to the final and we do face Real - I'd be quite okay with that.

I know they save their best for the Champions League, but if I could have one big scalp in world football right now other than Barca's, it'd most definitely be Real's.

Please God let this happen! :)

OIrish Kev 1

1.) 25 Apr 2018 22:16:51
Nothing to fear from either team.


2.) 25 Apr 2018 23:02:34
Nothing to fear BUT fear itself, Olirish.


3.) 26 Apr 2018 00:06:23
I actually hope it’s Real too. I think we can take them with that defence, they’ll be terrified of our attack.


4.) 26 Apr 2018 00:11:43
If we can get thru, it'd be quite to nice to face Real. Just thinkong how we pants'd it against them under Rodgers last time we stumbled thru CL, be nice to try and banish that.


5.) 26 Apr 2018 03:20:37
Faith, check out our line-up from those matches (home or away) if you ever need proof of the job that Klopp has done. It makes for almost upsetting reading.


6.) 26 Apr 2018 06:20:58
I think Real find a way to win regardless of how poorly they play. Winning 3 CL in 4 years, this year knocking out PSG, Juve and beating Bayern 2-1 away, it's not a coincidence. They can play poorly in the final for 89 minutes and still win. And Real is the last team I'd want play against if it goes to penalties. I'm hoping for a Bayern final.


7.) 26 Apr 2018 06:20:59
We aren’t in the final. Jesus I hope the team is t thinking like this.


8.) 26 Apr 2018 12:18:25
Well, Bayern were truly awful and Real truly blagged it. Please let's get through and then bring 'em on!


9.) 26 Apr 2018 12:21:54
If we were facing bayern I would be super confident, real would be a worry for me. Whoever we face we will probably be the underdogs with the bookies. Need to get past roma of course. I hope we don't suffer any injuries in that second leg. I could see it, if roma lose their rag.

Exactly Ed.
I feel he needs 30 or so games before we see where he's going in his career.
I certainly wouldn't rush him.
He could be a very useful backup for our wingers in the second half of next season and then assess him from there again.
With any luck, he'll make it.
Certainly I'm jealous of the Welsh that he's one of them :)

Been championing this young man for a long time now, he needs games in a senior team at Championship club level or higher - he has scored at every level now except Premier League level (hasn't played in the Prem. yet), which shows he definitely has something about him, not sure what exactly your problem is with him phil_LFC but I have watched this kid play since he came into the under 16's and I can tell you right now he has a lot of potential.

Of course Messi and Salah are better one footed players, but they are better one footed players than 99.99999% of the world's population that has ever walked the Earth.

Wilson has just turned 21, bags of potential, scored at each level he has been tried at, offered a new contract by Klopp (to both preserve his selling fee if he fails, which he hasn't as yet and keep him tied to us if he did well, which he has so far) - I mean, what more can you ask of a young, small (physically) player, who has Salah playing off the chart in his preferred position in the first team right now?

Wilson scored goals for fun in the under 23's while more established players like Danny Ings (Ings playing in more of a central attacking position) hasn't hit the net nearly as regularly.

Make no mistake, this Wilson kid has something very naturally special about him, not forced or coached, mark my words on that - he needs exposure to top football and get his game consistently for 12 to 18 months, then we'll see his potential being fulfilled, or lost if he doesn't continue to knuckle down and keep working his socks off.

OIrish Kev 1

{Ed025's Note - its all about timing kev, if hes put in and things dont go well then his confidence could be shot never to return, when the time is right (only klopp can decide that) he should be given a spell on the bench and brought on if the game is won or else be given a shot in the league cup side or play if the opposition is weak, its a tough call mate but if hes never given his chance then we will never know..

I have to say, I'd take Robertson any day of the week over Marcelo - it's not even close for me.
Robertson has been a revelation!

Especially playing against a fast, counter attacking team like ours.

Marcelo suits the Spanish league, but personally, I think he'd be ripped apart in many Prem matches if he ever moved there.

Alderweireld has been excellent since his Southampton days (somehow he didn't cut the mustard at At. Madrid) - missed a beat there with him and there's not a snowball's chance we'd get him now sadly.

Still, we have Van Dijk now and if we can get one more top CB in the summer, we could be in for a much better defensive showing next season (Lovren - less) .

I know he has improved recently and he has some personal issues, but he's not good enough to be a starter for a top 4 side, there I've said it sorry :)

No interest in Dembele personally.
Look at his behaviour to move from BVB to Barcelona last summer, it's all too common place now if you ask me - if he had a good season or two with us, he'll force his way out to the next big transfer again without hesitation (PSG/ Real) .

I know people will say VVD did the same and that's fair enough to use that as an argument possibly, but he's not going anywhere for the foreseeable future IMO - we were the big club VVD wanted, Dembele would drop us like a hot rock to move to Barca/ Real/ Bayern/ PSG once his form picked up.
