I believe Burnley's James Tarowski is back on the radar as the potential long term partner for VVD.

Gen info, direct from Ken Aguero.

1.) 07 Jan 2019 22:11:59
Hope your trying to wind us up as we have enough rubbish at the club without adding another average player if we are in the market for another world class centre half then test Napoli's resolve and make a proper bid for Koulibaly.

{Ed0333's Note - And what message does that send to joe Gomez who was playing out of his skin before his injury.

2.) 07 Jan 2019 22:25:45
Agree about Gomez has been fantastic this season but injury record not great for a youngster if you want to be the best in the world you have to have the best players what's to say Gomez couldn't play full back more solid than TAA imo. Defence :-Alisonn, Gomez, Van Diyk, Koulibaly, Robertson if that's not enough to get you excited I don't know what is Ed0333.

{Ed0333's Note - Gomez is no right back mate he’s too haphazard there. I’m sure Koulibaly would be VVD money and I’m not sure we will spend that amount on a player again.

3.) 07 Jan 2019 22:58:29
Let’s be honest, Matip and Lovren can’t stay fit, if one of those was to go and someone come in, it doesn’t say anything to Gomez. Just cos he’s playing well you can’t expect the club not to cover themselves. It’s showing now you can’t have three injury prone cbs. Also Gomez and vvd can’t play every game. Adequate cover is needed.

4.) 07 Jan 2019 22:49:24
Ed0333 Do you no if st this stage we only have Virgil as a for centre half for Brighton?

{Ed0333's Note - too early to tell mate. Lovren wen off after 2 mins clutching the back of his leg so looks ominous. Fab ain’t no Centre back and the Dutch kid won’t be risked in a premiership game will he? Materson and philips might come into the reckoning? Gomez and Matip are weeks away so if Lovren is anything more than 2 weeks I’d say we’re a little bit snookered unless we dip our toes into the market.

5.) 07 Jan 2019 23:04:28
Tarkowski is pants and he’s a manc. Not to mention his big ears either.

6.) 07 Jan 2019 23:33:16
I’d say Hoever is more likely to be used if materson and Philips where left out today.

Let’s hope our attack keep Brighton pegged back at the weekend so our defence gets a routine run out with injuries.

7.) 07 Jan 2019 23:50:55
Nat Phillips is injured Ed, shame as I'm sure he'd have picked up a couple games in this run of fixtures with our injuries.

{Ed0333's Note - thanks mate

8.) 08 Jan 2019 03:43:21
Masterson is fit again and I’m sure he’ll get a start over Ki Jana in the PL. KJ looked very good last night for his age, but I’m sure he was there only because it was FA cup and wasn’t expected to be used. It’s a lot to ask him to step in to face the likes of Murray at age 16 in a PL match.

My bet is Klopp will go with Fabinho though and I think he’ll do a decent job.

9.) 08 Jan 2019 06:27:18
It's send a message to Joe that you got your contract, even with yet another injury on top of the countless ones you have has because we know your value but you are at a top club and competition is fierce.

Lovren and Matip can no longer be our back ups. It's just not acceptable.

We go from an Italian defensive line with vvd to complete chaos without him. Before we signed him he had 6/ 7 months out with an ankle injury. So it's not like he has never been rocked by anything before and we are done if that happens.

People complained about shaqiri at the time but look at that now for cover and I personally would still like one more player to be able to rotate the front lads.

But Moreno, Matip, Lovren, clyne and mignolet. Where are worst ever defence and are not squad depth. They all need replacing.

Robertson, vvd, Gomez, Trent and Alison is ridiculously good, but we need better for cover and rotation.

10.) 08 Jan 2019 06:41:59
He will go Fabs you would think, I actually thought he did okay with very little support from the full back positions.

11.) 08 Jan 2019 08:05:56
Fab dove in a couple of times and could have been punished for it, the first goal is a good example, either take him out or run the man and see if you can push him wide, don't dive in as last man. Not only one at fault, why milner couldn't get round his man defeats me.

12.) 08 Jan 2019 13:03:47
Any centre half with VVD talking next to them seems to improve a few notches. Fab isn’t ideal there but with VVD next to him I’d be a little bit more comfortable with it.

13.) 08 Jan 2019 16:36:50
Fabinho did as well as anyone could have in that situation. Hoever looks so promising but he will be targeted and bullied in the prem.



13 Jan 2018 12:58:58
German press reporting Keita is playing his last game for RBL today and will transfer to Liverpool tomorrow (Sunday) .

1.) 13 Jan 2018 13:22:16
I always feel more inclined to believe German press. German people in general are just sensible people.

2.) 13 Jan 2018 13:48:02
Hmm history would beg to differ! Klinsman joined Spurs.

3.) 13 Jan 2018 14:07:08
Lol, was wandering where you were going with that.

4.) 13 Jan 2018 14:37:04
True Red Reaper. But the worst decision made by any German in history, was when Bastian joined Man Utd 😉 name me a German who made a bigger mistake than that!

5.) 13 Jan 2018 14:25:10
“I always feel more inclined to believe German press. German people in general are just sensible people. ”

😂 do you know many Germans?

6.) 13 Jan 2018 15:53:52
The we can get on to signing a Coutinho replacement : )

7.) 13 Jan 2018 16:10:35
My wife is german. Trust me, not all Germans are that sensible, unfortunately.

8.) 13 Jan 2018 16:13:44
Ron it sounds like youve never met a German in your life.

9.) 13 Jan 2018 17:18:48
Don't mention the war sybil dear.

10.) 13 Jan 2018 23:40:55
I know plenty of Germans, have worked with them and have socialised with them and they are not all sensible.

If anything it sounds like you have never met many Germans.

11.) 13 Jan 2018 23:44:26
stable genius what was it that ron said that made you think he didn't know many germans he made no false claims or said
the germans are masters of efficiency or
at the first signs of summer they like to get naked or
the germans have no sense of humour or
the Hoffis a demi-god or even
the germans train always run on time
not sure what he said for you to arrive at that conclusion lol.

12.) 14 Jan 2018 01:41:53
It was a bloody joke! I'm sure a British guy like Ron has met thousands of Germans.

13.) 14 Jan 2018 10:24:05
I used to live in Germany for a while 😄.



01 Jul 2015 11:36:15
Have heard the deal for Benteke is done - 32.5M.

Lambert to Palace.

1.) 01 Jul 2015 12:07:00
If true, although I believe that money would be better spent elsewhere, let's hope he settles in quick and does really well.
If he is a red he gets my full support until he does anything like not bother (Mario) or is constantly rubbish and blocks youth progression (Welsh Xavi)

2.) 01 Jul 2015 12:37:59
Well if he's complete rubbish then he is also blocking youth progression so your comment about Allen is pretty rubbish itself. "Gets my full support, but if he's rubbish, he doesn't." That's not full support.

3.) 01 Jul 2015 13:33:49

4.) 01 Jul 2015 14:08:53
Ya I'm with TjRed on that. Trying to pretend you're a great fan Max but no fooling Tj!

5.) 01 Jul 2015 16:01:59
Agger, yep Sir Ricky of Bench

6.) 02 Jul 2015 16:20:47
Waste of money, although if you believe the rumours we are in for.

Higuain (who is 'begging' to join Liverpool. Not)
Dries Mertens

and basically anyone else who is a striker and currently alive.



27 Jun 2014 23:35:54
Have heard a whisper that Liverpool are showing interest in Jose Gaya of Valencia

1.) 28 Jun 2014 00:55:30
Why a whisper? Were you told in a library?

2.) 28 Jun 2014 08:51:28
Thanks LENIN.

I have been here long enough to know that RED LENIN is a long term poster and a reliable guy.



11 Feb 2014 12:00:09
Deal has been struck regarding . TSSA have called of the strike. Details just breaking on media feeds now.

1.) Just one of the two unions involved- RMT is the other one. Big Scare BOB Crowe

2.) RMT have also just announced they are cancelling their action as well.

3.) YIPPEE- come on redmen. 2 wins in the next 2 league matches will really get us up there

Never doubt Ken Aguero.

Liverpool make shock loan move for James Tarkowski but Burnley want £50m deal.

1.) 10 Jan 2019 05:42:11
lol 50 million seriously i hope LFC don't fall into it. he is just not a buy worth especially after gomez this season.

2.) 10 Jan 2019 06:42:05
£50m? He’s not worth fifty quid. Journeyman pro at best with one ‘good’ season in a very mediocre career. Plus he’s a United supporter so he can do one. He’s been appalling this season when he’s played so he’s returned to his actual level. If he wasn’t an English defender he wouldn’t even be considered.

3.) 10 Jan 2019 07:47:16
I actually find this hard to believe and according to the BBC it was reported in the S*n so likely to be complete BS.

4.) 10 Jan 2019 08:04:09
Macca said klopp liked tarkowski. He predicted we would sign him, obviously macca knew what he was talking about.

When are people going to stop doubting klopp's signings?

It was the same with Oxlade Chamberlain, Andy Andy andy Andy Robertson. And even mo salah.

If klopp likes him I think he would be brilliant next to VVD. he's a battler and would make a great Henchoz to our knew hypia.

50mil? Seems a lot. But Dyche knows the big boys spend big money and tarkowski is a big part of his first 11. He will need a lot of cash to replace him and maybe look for a few bargains too, to fill out his squad.

I think we should buy him. I think the reason klopp didn't go for him in the summer was because of gomez's progress. But we are struggling with injuries, especially at CB. Two games could cost us the title. Its expensive business trying to win the league.

Klopp likes him, I would value the lad at £35mil but Dyche knows the score. Burnley could do with some cash. And just think. No more Joel matip strolling around in no man's land, or coming on with 5 minutes to go and making a mistake.

Sell Joel, 100% profit as he was a free transfer.

5.) 10 Jan 2019 08:34:57
Lol. We aren't going to bid for 50m for him. That would be just silly. 50m to sit on the bench in a position we aren't short of players. Journalists just putting things together because "we're in a crisis of injuries"

6.) 10 Jan 2019 08:52:49
Dyche has been found out this season, as have his defenders. Tarkowski is slow, makes poor decisions, is terrible with the ball at his feet and he lacks intelligence, he’s a mid/ lower level championship player at best and he looks it too. He’s also a dyed in the wool United fan which tops it off for me. Are we seriously to believe that for £50m there aren’t better options available across Europe?

7.) 10 Jan 2019 09:26:04
We don't need him, Gomez is back in a few weeks.

8.) 10 Jan 2019 14:14:50
If we're signing any defender this window (unlikely) it's Lloyd Kelly from Bristol city. Can play LB and CB. Joe Gomez 2.0 basically.

9.) 10 Jan 2019 21:18:43
A few weeks? We could lose the league in a few weeks. We need a loan.



29 Aug 2017 19:13:28
Press now running with the VvD to LFC story. One claiming the fee is £80m.

1.) 29 Aug 2017 19:41:30
BBC saying 75 Mill. just get it done.

2.) 29 Aug 2017 19:53:15
What press?

3.) 29 Aug 2017 20:00:30
Which press and where?

4.) 29 Aug 2017 20:01:32
If Liverpool sell Coutinho then no one will listen to Guillem Balague again.

{Ed025's Note - do they anyway daniel?

5.) 29 Aug 2017 21:07:35
Balague is terrible, he's worse than our journos but people think he talks sense because he's Spanish and is employed by Sky.

6.) 29 Aug 2017 21:18:18
The guy has been wrong on the Cou thing from jump. Awful pundit.

7.) 29 Aug 2017 19:24:25
Oh, and before anyone makes assumptions, I don't believe it - neither the VvD to LFC part nor the 80M.



15 Apr 2016 09:24:12
Immense game from Origi, Can and Sakho.



03 Feb 2016 12:40:14
Well we had our chances, didn't take them -0 and that was a stunning goal and a contender for goal of the season I suspect.

Other than that there's not a lot more to be said.

1.) 03 Feb 2016 14:26:29
Also, our passing was the worst I ever saw in a while. Chris Waddle on commentary could not believe his es. That`s how bad it was. Leicester has all we are lacking as in, a team hig on confidence, no critical injuries, a striker and key players on confidence and a new coach with a pre season to implement his ideas, ALL the things we currently lack. Apart from that, it wasn`t a very poor performance, just a very frustrating one.

{Ed001's Note - Chris Waddle is a moron. If our passing is so bad, how come we dominated possession for most of the game and it was just in the final third we struggled? Waddle was just desperate to pick at anything, but even he was admitting Liverpool were the better side, while trying to claim we were constantly giving the ball away.}

2.) 03 Feb 2016 17:52:16
I thought Waddle made some good assessments. Like the ed says, he consistently highlighted Liverpools sustained possession and lack of creativity in the final third.

3.) 03 Feb 2016 23:01:45
I agreed with you Ed however even I saw the way we were wasteful in our passing which shows in fact, how poorly Leicester played because they were just as bad. I agree that we opened them up at will atimes but our decisions in the final third along with a lack of a true striker killed us.



24 Jan 2016 07:40:08
I wouldn't read anything into that match. It was like watching two sunday morning pub sides getting a pub result. If we played like that against a better side (and most of the Prem is better than Norwich) we'd have been battered.

The only positive is we got 3 points.

1.) 24 Jan 2016 08:08:13
Another cheery post for a rainy Sunday!
Entertainment, action, football, it was all there, just try and enjoy watching the sport.

{Ed001's Note - I am just staggered that anyone could consider 3 points the only positive. Scoring five goals is a positive. Entertaining the crowd and TV audience is a positive. The fact we fought back from 3-1 down is positive. There are many positives.}

2.) 24 Jan 2016 08:30:40
Ed1 - both positives and negatives tbf!

{Ed001's Note - yes, but Lenin implied there were lots of negatives but only one positive.}

3.) 24 Jan 2016 08:49:34
It was a brilliant game, sometimes these games happen, just enjoy them.

Probably not going to happen again for quite some time.

Cmon that game was special!

4.) 24 Jan 2016 10:25:06
The fight back from 3-1 down was superb and the way we have seem to rescue points late on and playing to the final whistle is massive, the belief that Klopp as introduced to the team is great to see.

5.) 24 Jan 2016 10:27:38
The game was played like a cup tie and what is wrong with that. I love that type of game. Give me 2 teams trying to win rather than 2 teams trying not to lose any day of the week.

6.) 24 Jan 2016 12:40:50
under BR we would not have come back at 3-1 down god only know what the score would have been under BR, after lallanas goal the celebration said a lot, they believe in klopp and want to play for him, i can't wait until klopp gets a few of his players in, in our games we have been making many chances but have had no one as a top striker and then there's the defensive issues and the gk, if klopp can make changes in those positions and get better players in then we will go close next season and to be honest there's no reason why we can't get in the top 4 this season if we start putting the chances away and stop leaking goals then we will be there abouts, also i'm starting to think sturridgedoes not want to play for klopp because we can all see the improvement klopp has brought to the team and with a few good signings we will be winning things and sturridge seems he does not want to be part of it he looks too happy in the stands watching the game he does not look like he wants to be apart of it i may be wrong but when i see him i doubt it, maybe he did not like klopp saying the pain his in his head.

7.) 24 Jan 2016 12:47:45
I would watch that every game if it got the win. Who doesn't want a roller coaster ride every match. I'm sure united fans would welcome a bit of entertainment lol
We have problems in the squad, klopp will fix a good few in the summer and get the team up to speed with tactics and fitness. The schedule has been crazy, maybe 2 weeks with one game since he joined.
Good times are just around the corner. Just have to be patient and believe in the players.

8.) 24 Jan 2016 23:20:16
Sorry Ed001 I didn't respond to your comments which I entirely agree with, thank you.

I think for this one it's going to have to be a case of 'wait and see' and dropping the speculation. It could literally be anything from a long list of possibilities, for example serious family illness, relationship problems, workplace falling-out, lifestyle problems, threats from Serbian gangsters etc etc etc.

It will come out in the next few weeks whatever it is. I just hope it's nothing serious on a personal level and it doesn't have the same effect that Pako leaving had under Benitez (we were never the same after that for the rest of Benitez's reign)

{Ed001's Note - it is just a case of wait and see but it is a case of someone who was the main man feeling marginalised by the fitness coaches having a bigger say in team selection than he does, from what I can find out. That seems to be the key issue here. So I do not expect it to be resolved in any kind of return of Buvac, more likely a parting of the ways. It is not about player 1 or player 2 being chosen as such, it is because the tactical considerations Buvac believes in are now being totally overridden by the fitness considerations. I do not see this being solved easily or at all to be honest.}

Really I think we can forget about Emre Can. Klopp's not his style of manager and he isn't Klopp's style of player. It's not a personal thing either way, but in a jigsaw only the right piece fits in the right place.

Should Firmino sign a new longer term contract it will be more to do with increasing his transfer value I suspect in order to minimise the number of clubs continually sniffing round him down to the usual suspects (Barca, City etc) .

Keita is needed now and if we could somehow reach an agreement this window to pay an extra amount in order to get him early then that should be a priority.

It's an idea that seems to have come from a Spanish on-line magazine called Diario Gol that was in turn re-gurgitated by the UK's Express newspaper.

Is groundless speculation that because of Coutinho, one of Barca's front line will have to leave to make room and he (Suarez) is probably the easiest to move.

I'm 60 so have seen soe absolutely stunning midfielders play for Liverpool - Ray Kennedy, Gordon Milne, Jimmy Case, Jan Molby, Steve McMahon, Ronnie Whelan, Graeme Souness, Didi Hamann, Ian Callaghan, Steven Gerrard, Xabi Alonso - the list of giant is endless.

Best of all time? - in my lifetime the immortal Graeme Souness. Best in the Prem period? close but Xabi Alonso shades it over Stevie G and Didi Hamann.

kopite7, fans are fickle. Look how quick they turned on Rodgers. Should FSG remove him (don't think they will but he's probably had a warning at least) the fans will forget very quickly.
