West Ham, Borini and 8million according to the Guardian


1.) 29 Jun 2015 12:55:09
I wonder if Borini's girlfriend will allow him to move this summer?

2.) 29 Jun 2015 22:44:31
AG - he's married so are you starting a rumour here ha ha!!!



08 Jun 2015 00:42:59
Apparently we are being linked with Spurs midfielder Nabil Bentaleb for £10 million.

Don't shoot the messenger folks, just read it on Sky Sports, so it probably isn't true. Could be the Summer of midfielders for us though. Where's the strikers at? :)


1.) 08 Jun 2015 06:45:58
we don't use strikers anymore - just midfielders. We even invent new positions for them - such as midfield right wing-back. We are currently looking for a very deep lying midfielder to play in goal, and a midfielder with first aid training to be the physio.

2.) 08 Jun 2015 08:31:22
Lenin, I would've laughed if it wasn't true, so I'll just cry instead

3.) 08 Jun 2015 19:03:13
Couldn't be true could it . April 1st has well and truly been and gone.

Nabil Bentaleb for £10 million??? . apart from being an average player the bloke has a bad attitude.

Media is apparently claiming that Diego Lovren has handed in a transfer request into Southampton.


{Ed002's Note - It would not be out of the question for Lovren to move on this summer and with Southampton showing an interest in Caulker the club are likely expecting offers. Interest is there from Roma and Liverpool and even Barcelona may be keeping a watching brief. Liverpool had a verbal offer rejected as being far too low for the player. Spurs are looking for two centre backs and will, with their new manager, also look to Lovren.}

1.) He has also claimed that he wants to join a CL club wich would suggest Tottenham would be out of the running.


2.) Diego
Its Dejan he's Croatian not from South America

3.) He was unhappy with Pochettino leaving, so I think that Spuds will be a good bet for him. We've not been mentioned with him for a while sine our verbal low offer.

4.) 11 Jun 2014 19:10:46
Is Diego Lovren any good? Hope he's as good as Dejan Lovren!

5.) Yeah, that guy Dejan, I heard he's mustard. :)

Sadly I can't blame my iPad for this, I made a glaring error there. Before, i've typed his second name as ''Lovern'' but that was the iPad.

6.) I wouldn't get too excited! The "source" is very suspect, and if it was correct it would take a fee above that quoted for Shaw and Lallana to get anywhere. That would mean a big chunk of the money for Suarez, and without him in your squad the player would not be interested.
Besides, a new manager at Saints may very quickly placate the bonus issues and such froth could clear rapidly.

7.) You sound quite confident St Mary's. more hopefully than fact however. We are not a one man team, What makes you think Suarez is going Anywere?!

8.) Honestly don't know what StMarys is talking about. From my perspective, Lovren isn't worth half of Shaw or Lallana's fees, and a transfer for Lovren wouldn't have anything to do with Suarez (except perhaps the perception that he carries in other people's eyes, being one of the main catalysts for our success). Furthermore, Suarez won't move for anything less than a massive bid that would likely cover the transfer fees for most of Southampton's squad. Sounds to me like you want Lovren, Lallana and Shaw to stay at SH when A. they don't know what manager is going to be there, B. there's a possibility the team won't be as successful next season (let's be honest, they surprised most people)
C. teams are busting down the door to get at them and the club is slowly handling its own business before it addresses theirs.
I do wish them all the best, and if they sell their talent at a high price they can afford to progress and stay up for years to come, which is the most important thing for them going forward.

9.) For what i've seen he's decent but what do you think ed can he cut it at Liverpool if we get him? he's still young

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea.}

10.) I was just trying to help you guys with a little perspective, but you obviously know very little about other clubs situations and would rather not be helped.

Suggest you examine Saints ability to afford to progress compared to LFC and your perspective may be improved. Saints have no need or desire to sell and would only do so at a deal right for them (remember £40m+£1?) It is the selling club in this situation who sets the conditions-or is Lallana not relevant?

A more simple way might be to ask yourselves-"if we have difficulty funding Lallana where will we get the money to fund Lovren?" IMHO the answer to that would be from Real Madrid and that would seriously adjust your prospects for next season and the ability to attract players like Lovren. Lovren will have other options that could perhaps offer what he wants and what Saints would accept (maybe not the case with Lallana), so I still suggest "don't get too excited".

{Ed002's Note - I am sorry but the fee Southampton are looking at for Lovren is not unreasonable, although the verbal offer from Liverpool was. You should probably stick to the Southampton page.}

11.) Aspas is off to Madrid? ;)

12.) St Mary's you assume Liverpool's offers for Lallana are based just on what Liverpool can afford. There is also the aspect of what Liverpool believe he is worth and are prepared to pay



14 Mar 2014 16:44:19
Hello Ed/s, someone on the radio said the other day that Rodgers is interested in reuniting with Steven Caulker next season and that he'll be looking to make a move for the lad come the Summer.

Not sure how true it is, but thought with the troubles we've been having in defence that it seems quite plausible. Rodgers had the lad on loan at Swansea and he ended up with an England cap and goal.

Cheers Ed's


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool at this time and the club have a surplus of centre backs right now.}

1.) This is one of the few rumours from a buddy I can confirm that Liverpool are genuinely keeping a close look at, whether it materializes time will tell.



30 Aug 2013 17:50:09
Just to correlate with an earlier post that ''Liverpool hope to complete the signings of defenders Mamadou Sakho from Paris St-Germain and Sporting Lisbon's Tiago Ilori in the next 48 hours.''

Source: BBC Website, Ben Smith.


1.) Be great additions to the club. let's hope an attacker comes in or they'll be some complaints haha.

Liverpool are playing the Yellow Submarines in the semi final.




29 Nov 2015 20:36:26
I think that's the type of match we wouldn't have won under Rodgers, most likely had a draw or even worse.

6 points separate us from 1st place City and 4 from 4th place Arsenal. we've played United, Tottenham, Chelsea, City and Arsenal, so we've done quite well now that we have some confidence back and look like a formidable team once again, also having dealt with some key injuries which unsettled the team. As well as qualifying from our group stage in Europa which at one point didn't look likely.

I am extremely pleased going into the crazy Christmas schedule, this season is back on track and the players and new manager need to be proud of their hardwork which needs to continue. Bravo Liverpool.


1.) 29 Nov 2015 21:15:06
I too think our league position is quite healthy. But I keep seeing posts saying "and all the top teams need to come to Anfield still" and I'm not being funny but our form at Anfield is terrible.

If Man United came to Anfield next weekend I wouldn't bet on us winning put it that way. Hopefully Klopp has time to sort out our home form by the time the top teams visit though because under Klopp so far we've drawn 1 lost 1 and won 1 at Anfield in the league I think? Correct me if I'm wrong but you get the gist of my post. Anfield is not currently a fortress that teams are scared to visit. We're better at going to other teams and taking points off them right now.

{Ed001's Note - did we not just win at Anfield tonight and in midweek?}

2.) 29 Nov 2015 21:23:43
Midweek wasn't a league game though and in both games we've relied on soft penalties to get the victories Ed. Surely nobody can sensibly argue that we are playing well at home right now? We scabbed wins against Bordeaux and Swansea. Swansea have like 1 win in 10 games and Bordeaux are a mid table team in a (albeit only slightly) lesser league.

We only got murdered by Crystal Palace at Anfield like 2 weeks ago.

{Ed001's Note - but our recent form is 2 wins in 2 games, so it is not bad form, regardless of the performances. You were talking about form not quality of play.}

3.) 29 Nov 2015 23:01:54
Murdered by palace? We played better against them attack wise than Swansea, EMS.

4.) 30 Nov 2015 01:50:56
We need to open up the opp defence more with better wing play and crosses. Ibe and moreno needs to put the ball into area where it hurts and the midfielders need to risks those runs in to penalty area more.

5.) 29 Nov 2015 22:03:21
I said league form. We've won one league game at Anfield under Klopp so far.

All I'm saying is we need to improve at home before we can start counting our games against United, City, Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal etc at Anfield as guaranteed points. If we can go to the Etihad and take points then other teams can come to Anfield and take points.

That's all I'm saying Ed. We've been bang average at Anfield and I consider form to be based on your record over about 5-10 games across a couple of months rather than 2 games across 4 days. But I do see your point. It shows minor improvement at least.

{Ed001's Note - you said no such thing. And you can consider form to be whatever you want, but as most of the games were before the international break, they are not relevant.}

6.) 30 Nov 2015 03:17:53
Murdered by CP? Are you on some medication, EMS? We played ok and CP took advantage of our errors and won the game and had we not wasted our chances, we would defo not have lost. I know u're being cautious but no need to exaggerate the issue.

7.) 30 Nov 2015 08:52:50
The main reason we do not "WIN" as often at Anfield is because teams come to us and "park the bus".
The reason for this is because they fear coming to play us and hope to leave with a point.
Swansea did not have 1 shot on target yesterday. NOT ONE.
We need to find a way of un-locking these teams.
In some parts of the game yesterday when we were in Swans half there was only Migs and one other defender in our half.
Believe me, teams fear coming to us. And as a result we will see more of these "boring" games at home.
Klopp will sort it. And when he does, we will begin to make in roads on the top 4 spot.
Y. N. W. A.

8.) 30 Nov 2015 10:26:12
I started the post with an opinion on our league position and then later quoted our last 3 results at Anfield in the league only. I didn't use the exact words "league form" but it was obvious I was referring to our record in the league.

European form is irrelevant to domestic form anyway. Look at Chelsea. Caught in a relegation scrap but winning their Champions League group.

It's funny you all think we were good against Palace. I must've missed our toothless attack and panicky defence who fell apart during every counter attack. We were dire. Hence why we lost against an average team. Unless anybody wants to argue that Zaha, Bolasie and Puncheon are world class?

It's okay to be unbiased guys. We haven't been good enough at home. Just admit it because other fans looking in and reading your comments will be laughing. We needed a soft penalty to beat (based on form) one of the worst teams in the league. It was a penalty but you see them not given and aside from that we had one other shot on target.

I know Swansea had none. But that was to be expected. Have any of you seen them lately? They have 7 goals in their last 10 games. This is a clean sheet that should've been an expectation. Not something worth praising.

And the excuse that teams sit back doesn't wash with me. They do against City, United and Arsenal too and they score loads at home on a regular basis against the lesser sides. We need to improve. If you can honestly say you think our home form/performances etc (whatever pendantic terminology you want to call me out on) then I'm sorry but you're wearing rose tinted specs.

I have every faith in Klopp to rectify it but let's not count our eggs just yet. Just let it go and stop making wild predictions about us being top of the league come Christmas and laughably calling West Brom, Sunderland and Leicester easy games. Pulis teams are never guaranteed points, Sunderland are on a high with a new boss and Leicester whether you like it or not are flying this season. We have a tricky December. They are all winnable but there are still points to be dropped if we do not focus and get complacent. So reel in the expectations until Klopp proves he can make Anfield a fortress again please.

{Ed001's Note - European form is not irrelevant at all. Nonsense, shows a complete lack of understanding of the point of looking at form.}

9.) 30 Nov 2015 10:54:58
Of course European form is irrelevant. Sion, Bordeaux and Kazan would be relegated from the Premier League. They are only in the tournament to fill out numbers. Hence why we can beat them or at the least match them with reserve teams.

Tel Aviv, Ludogorets, Genk etc. Its a cup competition. Might as well include mighty wins against Northampton Town, Wimbledon etc in the form guides.

I'll agree to disagree Ed. But I don't count cup competitions as being relevant to league form. It's a different style of football (slower pace) against (during the groups) lesser sides.

{Ed001's Note - you really have no idea what you are talking about. Form is relevant due to the confidence it builds, not what competition it takes place in. Otherwise we may as well discount the win over Chelsea, as they play slow paced footie and they are crap this season.}

10.) 30 Nov 2015 12:51:11
Sack klopp now our form is terrible. We want carlo, chant with me people carlo, carlo. No, noone?

It's my birthday and we got the three points at Stamford Bridge and helped turn the kiln up on Mourinho to full blast. Couldn't have asked for any more.

Genuinely a happy red today. Well done lads,

Now what type person disagrees with the above post, your a naughty naughty boy who deserves to be a miserable git by doing this.

Happy Birthday Mate, it will be 1 I hope now you will never forgot, every year on this day when u blow your candles out u can bring forth this happiest of memory's, as far as presents go lad today was one the best u could have ever been given, enjoy your day mate.

30 Aug 2015 23:50:46
I just want to play a bit more direct, especially when we are at home, maybe two strikers?!

I get really annoyed with the ball retention tactics when it comes to sweet nothing, we need to shoot much more and have some kind of spine when in defence.

The result was woeful and after going behind we looked toothless, Firmino's long range shot that hit the post and Coutinho's shot that hit the post were pretty much it.


1.) 31 Aug 2015 07:17:56
Lovren's 40 yarder was our only shot on target all game.

2.) 31 Aug 2015 08:23:50
We don't have the players to force errors from teams who defend deep like west ham did.
A winger with pace, dribbling ability and a goal threat is needed before the window shuts. We don't need a creative player we have plenty(Coutinho, Lallana, Firmino, Teixeira), we need an attacking outlet plain and simple Ibe can't be the only outlet we have on the wings. It's naive to think we can cope without real wingers at the top level.

3.) 31 Aug 2015 11:21:17
Coutinho so far has been the sole threat to the opposition. I have said this before and I will probably say this again, take Coutinho out of the game, and LFC will struggle for efficacy in attack. We will see this next game, maybe not so evidently as it's a derby and flair players will struggle.

4.) 31 Aug 2015 11:29:57
You mean like the one we just loaned out in Turkey?

5.) 31 Aug 2015 15:10:09
Yarmolenko is available. Would he be good, yes. Will it happen, no not a chance.
All full at the inn.



23 Jun 2015 14:09:43
''Liverpool have held talks with trio Carlos Bacca, Jose Salomon Rondon and Roberto Firmino according to Sly Spurts sources'' (??)

I just hope that during the ''talks'' with Roberto Firmono and Carlos Bacca's agents that Liverpool offered very appetizing deals and that we can manage to these two players sign up.

Jose Salomon Rondon, i'm not too sure about as a player, saw him a bit at Malaga but he's been off of my radar since he moved to Zenit.

Firmino and Bacca would be awesome signings for us, i believe dynamic and prolific enough to see us able to challenge once again.


1.) 23 Jun 2015 14:28:02
Sounds like we're doing the transfer equivalent of speed dating in chile at the moment.

2.) 23 Jun 2015 14:52:31
It seems a bit unbelievable to imagine them all in a room together 'talking.' When was this supposedly? After the match? Is there no Peruvian player we could 'talk' to as well just to have the whole set?

Rodgers said today and it's in print on the LFC website, article named: ''Rodgers update of injured quartet''

"Young Jon Flanagan is still in rehab, but coming along very well, " Rodgers told reporters at his pre-match press conference.

"Adam Lallana is looking very well.

"Those two will probably start training with the group in the week beginning with Manchester City.

"Young Markovic is still unavailable this weekend but doing very well.

"Daniel Agger has had an ongoing injury so he is unavailable; apart from that, everyone else is fine."

The age old ''time is linear/non-linear we just experience it as linear'' debate rumbles on.

Next time it's epistemology folks, I think. stay tuned for that one, if you are tuned at all.? :D

Allow people their opinion/s without trying to enforce or impose one's own. If someone thinks Bertrand is shockingly bad, then let the players performances do the talking. Sink or swim.

Leicester or failing that glorious moment of football for the neutral, then i'd rather Arsenal win it than Tottenham. I know too many Tottenham fans who are simply front bottom faces and only care about football when they are in a gloating position. The fickle Tottenham fan is something of a tradition spanning multiple generations i'm willing to theorize

Also, my Bro who isn't alive anymore was a big Arsenal fan and he loved them. I hold a soft spot for them because of that. I even remember winding him up soooo much about Fowler's 5 min hat trick that i got thick eared and a bruised eye for my persistent annoyance. :D Formative childhood years, i miss them.

I think it's only natural that Liverpool fans are overly delighted with the Klopp'steria that has swept through the Liverpool fandom. When we look at the managers that have been in charge during FSG's tenure as our owners, Dalglish was the only manager that has been truly deserving, even with his long step away from the game his knowledge of our club is rivaled like no other and has pedigree of being a winner, again even if a long time had passed since his first stint as the Liverpool manager, but at least he got us to finals and a taste of silverware during his brief spell back in the LFC hot seat. Now FSG have gone out and seemingly got one of the current top managers within European football. I think it's quite similar to when Liverpool hired Benitez, we believed we were getting a winner, with a track record as opposed to Rodgers or even Hodgson who had not really won anything worthy of being appointed LFC manager, at least to satisfy a majority of fans expectations. I think it's worth a mention that Klopp and Benitez are similar in terms of breaking their national leagues strong holds, Klopp with Dortmund overcoming the force of Bayern Munich and Benitez storming Barcelona and Real Madrid with Valencia. Both having shown great awareness of European football competition as well, with Klopp getting to the Champions League final and Benitez winning the then UEFA Cup. So, i understand the Klopp wave of hope that has seemingly washed away the cobwebs of last season, Klopp is one of the managers of the moment and has reportedly been in high demand for quite some time even with a difficult campaign with Dortmund last season.

When Brendan Rodgers is installed as the new Newcastle United manager, taking over from Steve McClaren even he won't try and sign Joe Allen from us.
