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



20 Jan 2014 11:50:31
Nearly forgot. Another rumour I have picked up on from a good source. We know we have problems with the DM position yes? Guess who is available as a free agent and has been mentioned as a possible quick repair - Mohamed Sissoko 'the black ninja'. His name has been mentioned a couple of times over the last 2 months or so.

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.



05 Jan 2016 22:51:33
Well, as a near 60 year old life-long Liverpool fan I am astonished to find myself saying our best two players tonight were Toure and Allen.

Who the hell will we put in central defence to face Arsenal?

1.) 05 Jan 2016 22:56:25
I thought Firmino had a good game to. Toure and Llori lol.

2.) 05 Jan 2016 23:04:32
Arsenal is over a week away. Who knows, maybe Lovren will be fine by then, Toure apparently was just a cramp, and Sakho I don't think was anything long term either. Exeter is a different story though, that one should be interesting.

3.) 05 Jan 2016 23:06:07
Can for me RED. i thought he was excellent this evening. I agree the others did have good games though!

4.) 05 Jan 2016 23:27:55
Toure had a top game alright.

Allen drifted out of the match after Lucas was moved out of midfield. He meant that assist for Ibe (air shot my ass), but over the whole 90 minutes he wasn't great.

5.) 06 Jan 2016 00:22:57
Red Lenin - I agree with you about Allen and Toure. I think Allen offers more in a CM role than Milner. (I know I'll be crucified on here for saying that) . He wasn't scared to pass the ball forward and made runs to support the attack at every opportunity.

As for Toure - over 10-15 yards he's as fast as anyone else on the field. He reads the game well and gets into good positions where he doesn't have to cover more than 15 yards - well, not too often anyways.

A few people have also commented that Firmino had a good game tonight. I disagree! While he might have improved on his last three performances, he still has a lot to work on. His decision making as to when to shoot or not is one. Another is that he doesn't like to receive the ball with his back to goal. He opts to pass it back rather than turn with it - probably a lack of confidence more than a lack of ability.

6.) 06 Jan 2016 00:39:28
Altogether, our boys didn't need to break a sweat tonight, I feel. Yes, we fought hard, stayed together and played some lovely stuff vs a team that has been slapping teams around on their home patch but I felt the boys never panicked and just did the job. They were ready for the fight and took it to them. Chuffed to bits for the win. Great response from them and Klopp must be pleased.

7.) 06 Jan 2016 09:06:05
Illori perhaps, recently returned from loan. I would imagine if he is injury free he might get a look in.

Just what went wrong with Flanagan? Few seasons ago he was dynamite. Gets an injury and never seen again.

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 can give you a clue about the player Macca was on about.

He's got two legs and a lot of money.

{Ed002's Note - Thiago Alcantera then.}

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.

Traore is proof of Rafa Benitez's skills as a world class tactician. We won the Champs League with him in defence. (and Biscan and Smicer in the staring line-up)

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.
