You have to laugh.

There's a report that United are looking to 'get under our skin' by signing Konoplyanka. According to the site, they're looking to wrap up the deal as soon as Van Gaal confirms that he wants the player and this is seen as a considerable slight at LFC.

It also goes on to say that Dnipro are annoyed at LFC due to our failure to wrap up the deal in January!

For a start, I'm pretty sure that we would have loved to have signed the player in January, but it was their Chairman that decided to pull the plug at the last minute.

It'll be interesting to see if we do go back in for him, but - based on what we're hearing at the moment - it's looking unlikely.

I would truly doubt that we retain any interest in the player anymore.

Although I believe that Mignolet is doing a good job so far, I do think we should look to give him more competition and maybe bring another keeper to the club.

Now, I was thinking of McCarthy at Reading. Looks to be a bit of a talent and we all know that Rodgers rates him. Could he be a possibility? - what would his potential value be?

Of course, there doesn't look to be any particular worries in that department, so does this mean we have any keepers in the youth squads that could make the step-up?


1.) Ed, is Brad Friedel out of contract in the summer?

Wouldn't mind him back at Liverpool as back-up to Migs.

Red Rum

{Ed002's Note - He is out of contract in the summer.}

2.) There are very few clubs across Europe that actually have a competitive back-up 'keeper. There is an established 'keeper and a solid number 2 usually. It is the same for us IMO. Also, GK is not an area where you want to see chopping and changing. If we stick to Mignolet and just let him improve, he will be fine IMO.

Also, please spare a thought for Brad Jones. He has done nothing wrong whenever given an opportunity, and has been fully professional.

3.) I disagree AG, I think if available and willing friedel is exactly what we need. A solid back up keeper to put pressure on mingnolet.

Brad jones is good and a very likable person but we need a better no.2

4.) Friedel is older than Migs. & Jones combined (almost). Why waste money on players who will never, er, play. If Jones had been throwing them in fine. He hasn't so what's the beef with him?

5.) Agreed, Anfieldboy. I'm not quite sure what Jones has done wrong to have so many eager to replace him. He's willing to be a backup, never complains about it, isn't asking for or taking massive wages, by all accounts is an incredibly nice guy, is a pretty decent keeper or has performed well enough in the few games he has played, on top of which the guy has absolutely fabulous hair for which I am immensely jealous.

I agree boys. I've been really happy with Jones performances.
Eds, I know a player needs 10 appearances to get a winners medal, does this apply with Goalkeepers too? Although having said that, I'm not sure Jones has a single PL appearance to his name this season.

Pity we didn't get a longer cup run to let Jones get a few more games!

{Ed002's Note - Clubs can make an application for additional medals to be provided. Cup games don't count.}

There's a report that AC Milans Galliani has said that they will not be continuing with the pursuit of Sakho.

The report states that this then leaves Monaco and ourselves as the two clubs showing the most interest. However, it does also say that Laurent Blanc would still like to extend his contract, with the possibility of sending him out on loan for the season.

I know it's still pretty remote, even if these reports are to be believed, but he would be an amazing signing - especially at the reported £8M price tag.

He's a very good player and was completely misused by Rodgers during his loan period.

I'd be happy to see him back, especially if he's playing in the correct position.

However, I'm keen to see the likes of Grujic, Stewart and Brannagan get some games this season - supposing that Henderson and Can are our starting midfield.

He was all set to be 'the next big thing' at one point. If I recall correctly, he was another highly rated youngster at Inter when Coutinho was there.

I think I read recently that he seems to have matured a lot and is making good on all that initial promise.

He was definitely a name making the rounds here a few years back.

I can't honestly see any of those being realistic transfers.

Falcao will obviously need to be first choice and the costs associated would be astronomical. Cavani would also have to be first choice and, again, the costs are beyond us. Bony would want to be getting a lot of game time and he deserves to, considering the impact he's had in first season. Eto'O I just can't really see - he's an option and I don't share the view that he's 'washed up'. He might be past his best, but he's still a very, very good player.

Lavezzi obviously has that flexibility that would certainly suit us, but - as the Eds have said - he favours a move to Italy and I'm sure he'll get his wish.

Personally - and I know that there'll be others that disagree with me - I'd like to see us go with Borini, Lambert and Sturridge. I know it leaves us a little light, but we have the adaptability in the team to change formation to accomodate one or two strikers. If need be, we can always review this in January.

I just really hope that Sturridge can stay fit this season - I'd love to see him go that little bit further than last season. He's definitely got 25+ goals in him.


{Ed002's Note - I would not totally discount Lavezzi not moving to Italy.}

ED001, do you think that has anything to do with the ownership being inherited?

It's a real shame to see their squad being picked apart like this, but I would love to see Lallana at Liverpool next season.


{Ed001's Note - everything to do with it mate. Markus was the one who wanted to invest, his daughter is not so keen as it is not her labour of love, so to speak. She wants to be financially sound, whereas Markus was happy to take risks and invest heavily.}

I have to say, I'd have no problem if we were to go for Bertrand.

Admittedly, he's not looked great for Villa during his loan period, but he's always been quite highly regarded and we've all seen what Brendan can do with talented players to help them push on.

I disagree, Redmen Reus. I think that Origi has actually proven a lot over the second half of this season. If Sturridge were injured, I'd feel pretty confident with Origi up front. Obviously, there's no guarantees he'll score 20-25 goals in a season, but - barring injury - I think he'll do us proud.

I also just don't think that Klopp will look to change for the sake of it. I think he'll be looking at that first-team squad and realise just how much was achieved last season. We've got to remember; we made two finals, with a team that he hadn't assembled, no pre-season, with a ton of injuries and many of that squad showed a significant improvement over the last few months.

I highly doubt there'll be many coming in over the summer. We've got a few already (and they certainly look as if they'll improve the squad), but we really need to sell before we do anything more.

It's not about not having the cash to spend on the likes of Higuain (although, at approximately 50-70M, that would be a huge gamble), it's more about letting go those that offer little to the system.

A LB is a must, but we know there are players that the club are looking at, but I don't think we need to improve in many other areas.

Don't get me wrong, Higuain is a fantastic striker. I've no doubts he'd be successful in any league and that he'd certainly do very well for LFC.

However, I'd be very disappointed if we were to make such a big signing when we have such exciting options up front.

I'm a huge fan of Sturridge and - if we can keep him fit - there's absolutely no one better to lead the line for us. Origi is proving to be an absolutely brilliant signing and will only get better, so I expect him to play a lot of games next season. Then we have Ings, who I think will see a lot of game-time next season too - I think he'll do very, very well under Klopp.

Ultimately; Higuain is a great player, who I'd love to see at Anfield - but, not at the price Napoli would demand and definitely not at the expense of Origi, Ings and Sturridge.

Does that mean they didn't get Yaya another Birthday cake?

I'd prefer we kept Markovic.

He's a very talented young player and he seems to have all the necessary tools to thrive in our team. I think he could prove to be incredibly useful in Cup matches, or coming from the bench.

Ultimately, it's going to be a long season, so we can expect to see quite a few racking up games. I think Markovic might find himself pushing for the first team, if he works hard.

Hoddle was the last coach we had that made me feel that we could challenge in major tournaments. I think he had a great bunch of players to pick from, but it would have been great to see him work with some of the others that followed after he'd been replaced. I've no doubts he could have been the England manager for many, many years.

I'm of the belief that a national team should always be managed by a coach of the same nationality. I was not happy when Sven was appointed and even less so when Capello was.
