So, Luis Alberto becomes our 30th departure from our first team or U21 team of the summer, 20 permanent and 10 loans.

By any measure that's a fair amount of paperwork, and there's still six hours to go.

And people question our activity in the market!
The squad was massively bloated we couldn't just keep buying, the squad had to be trimmed so we could build for the future.

2.) 31 Aug 2016 18:26:11
Make that 31 departures - Andre Wisdom has just signed on loan for Red Bull.

3.) 31 Aug 2016 20:00:00
Any chance of listing the 31.

4.) 31 Aug 2016 20:19:33
Eds, I am quite happy to list the 31 departures if you don't mind. Great work by your good selves by the way .

{Ed041's Note - send it in as a new post and I'll put it on the others page mate for everyone to look at and it won't get lost.

Eds, don't shoot me down in flames but it is strange how yesterday's events seem to have increased the chances of Ings arriving at Anfield in the summer .

Consider this. Rodgers knows Dyche extremely well from their time at Watford. If Ings moves to Sociedad or any foreign club, Burnley get buttons, if he moves to LFC or any English club, Burnley get £4/5 million in compensation.

The player is said to be desperate to move to Anfield, there is even talk of a deal being struck in the next week so that the player can concentrate on playing for Burnley until the summer. Such a deal would not breach Premier League rules . Interesting !

Ritters of Hale

{Ed002's Note - Firstly it is nothing to do with Watford. Secondly, Rodgers does not have any involvement with negotiations for transfers. Liverpool cannot speak directly with the player without the permission of his club. As of June 1 or whenever he is released from his contract (typically at the end of the season) then Liverpool can talk with the player. It is clear that the player wants to move to Anfield in the summer, and if Liverpool want the player then I am sure agreement can be reached.}

1.) 04 Feb 2015 04:54:42
Ed002 then can you explain why Tony Barrett is writing that this is exactly what LFC are trying to do

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea who Tony Barrett is or what he is saying.

If he is suggesting that Rodgers is striking some sort of deal by talking to the player with the complicity of Dyche then it will be a tapping up charge for the club - and with charges to Burley as well.}

2.) 04 Feb 2015 09:17:46
Ed, I read an article on this whole situation likening the move to Smallings move to Man Utd, quoting a rule u8. Can you shed any more light?

{Ed002's Note - Smalling's transfer happened during the transfer window. Perhaps Liverpool are stupid enough to believe the regulations from five years ago or so apply then they are in for a shock. You all seem to be pretty sure that this Barrett chap has said Liverpool will be tapping up a player from another club. I have explained what can be done in order to obtain a deal for Ings. Is Barrett on of the posters here? It would be interesting to have him justify all of this nonsense he is being accused of saying about Rodgers and Dyche conspiring to make an illegal approach.}

3.) 05 Feb 2015 04:39:08
Ed002 maybe you should talk to Ed001 about Tony Barrett. The Merseyside reporter for The Times, amongst fans he is considered the leading expert (along with James Pearce of The Echo) on what is happening at Anfield.

{Ed001's Note - that is not what he is, he is not an expert on what is happening, no one is. Nor is he leading anything. Pearce is worse, he is just saying what he is told to say, which is why there are so many inaccuracies in his stories.}

If anyone was wondering how many foreign players we have at close of play today, it is 19. We can name 17 in our PL squad which is presumably published to-morrow.

In total, home-based and foreign, we have 27 "over twenty-one" players to squeeze in to our 25 man squad.

Ritters of Hale

1.) 09 Aug 2018 17:16:02
We should be fine then if we can let Origi and Mignolet move to pastures new. Another option of course is Markovic if anyone would have him.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 17:50:57
Am I right assuming that Solanke, Alexander-Arnold and Gomez don't count towards the 25 due to their age?



21 Jan 2018 12:10:53
Guys, I have tried to find this information on the Interweb, I have also RTFP, do any of you know if our 'keeper Adam Bogdan has retired? He was injured in 2016, it is now 2018 and there is never any mention of him.

Also, is Shamal George still at Carlisle, he doesn't seem to have made their matchday squad since November?

Ritters of Hale

1.) 21 Jan 2018 12:33:20
He ruptured his Anterior Cruciate Ligament and is still injured apparently.

{Ed002's Note - He is registered in Liverpool’ PL squad.}

2.) 21 Jan 2018 13:13:05
Yet he will still be paid wages, why is his contract not terminated.

3.) 21 Jan 2018 13:51:08
I presume you own a business Daffy?

4.) 21 Jan 2018 13:57:08
Why is his contract not terminated?

Do you not get how contracts work? The club can't just terminate a contract whenever they feel like it without having to pay some serious money to the player.

It's not Bogdan's fault that he got injured and the club have priced him out of any move and not actively looked for a solution.

I'm very rarely someone to bash the club but the whole GK situation has been completely messed up. We have 4 GKs, 3 of which have been told they are number 1 or future number 1, whilst the club is looking at other GKs to replace them.

It's a shambles tbh.

5.) 21 Jan 2018 14:19:40
Karius was signed to be no 1 though RedDawn.

Who knows what is happening with Ward. What we do know is that Mignolet is starting to search for greener pastures.

Are we going to sign the most expensive GK ever next summer? I highly doubt it. Karius is no 1 from here on in. What happens in the summer, we shall see.

6.) 21 Jan 2018 14:20:20
Yes Klavy, a couple.

'The club can't just terminate a contract whenever they feel like it without having to pay some serious money to the player. '

We could mutually terminate and it wouldn't have to cost us a lot. His contract is up next year.

I completely agree the way the club have handled the goalkeeper situation has been a shambles, not to mention other areas.

Mignolet and Bogdan need to go in order for us to bring another one in. Do you think Bogdan will see out the end of his contract or be sold? I don't.

Credit where credit is due, in nine league games since Tottenham we have only conceded two ghost penalties (Everton and Brighton), one attempted cross (Chelsea) and one genuine goal (Lanzini) .

Ritters of Hale

1.) 18 Dec 2017 13:38:19
When you put it like that! Wish the media would wise up and credit Klopp.

2.) 18 Dec 2017 14:24:05
The defending has improved from defending set plays which people were very critical of last season and the beginning of this one. Seems to go unnoticed how well we've dealt with them recently.

3.) 18 Dec 2017 14:42:33
Who cares what the media thinks. As long as Klopp is learning from his mistakes then that’s fine with me.
I think all this rotation recently is so we don’t suffer catastrophic loss of fitness/ form like last Xmas.
I think we focus too closely on individual games and even individual players far too often, got to look at the season as a whole, the goal in the league this season is surely to try and get top 4 again to cement that position and I think we are reasonably well set to achieve that.
The only mistake I think Klopp is making is playing Migs over karius but I can see the reasoning behind it in that he wants to ease in karius gently so the “fans” don’t give him grief again.

4.) 18 Dec 2017 19:25:18
Spot on, Mikey. Klopp referred to the very issue you speak of in his post game comments last night that people get too hung up on individual games and players and lineups. There is NO picture approach to football anymore.

Klopp said that him rotating does not mean we win all our games as Everton and WBA games have shown. He said that those who don't play this game, train and are much more sharper and ready to play the next game than those who played in this game. This is simple logic BUT the media and those who take their crap as gospel truth cannot/ won't separate the two as they always seem to have a gripe.

Defensively, we have turned a corner and are much more solid w/ o compromising on who we are as a team which is, relentless and ALWAYS on the front foot. Massive credit to Klopp and the staff and players as they have risen from the near ashes of the Spurs debacle splendidly well. Hats off to Klopp and the boys!



12 Aug 2017 10:27:44
Some years ago we had a young goalkeeper in the U18s, Ryan Crump was his name and like so many others, he left for pastures new, joining Blackburn in August 2014 then Southport in July 2016,ending up at Hyde I think whilst working part-time at the B&Q.

Last night he was on our bench for the U23s.

Have I missed something? There is absolutely no mention of him on the club website!

Ritters of Hale

1.) 12 Aug 2017 10:46:13
I heard he was just in as cover due to lack of availability of GKS for this game. I may be wrong though.



18 Apr 2016 14:28:04
I thought Sturridge was awesome yesterday. He seems to have been around the Premiership forever yet still hasn't started 100 league games, due to his bad luck over the years.

He has 67 goals in 99 league starts and I hope he adds to that on Wednesday!

Ritters of Hale

1.) 18 Apr 2016 14:52:06
Was critical of his work ethic a few weeks back but in fairness is proving myself and doubters wrong. Would be amazing if he can put his injury problems behind him as imo is England's best player and is just marginally behind aguero as the best striker in the league.

2.) 18 Apr 2016 15:24:07
He looks like the old Sturridge looking to score evertime he had a shot and I think origin is pushing him to it because he knows if he does not play well he could be a sub . It's nice that we are having other players who can score goals in the team to take the pressure off him.

3.) 18 Apr 2016 15:32:26
I'm just enjoying having Origi, Sturridge, Firmino and Coutinho all in good goalscoring form, as well as Milner and Lallana creating a lot of goals and chances. We've scored about 40 goals this calendar year already. And it's only April!

4.) 18 Apr 2016 16:03:10
Add ingsy to that aswell. the futures bright goals galore.

5.) 18 Apr 2016 16:40:38
If only we can Mkhytaryan. .

6.) 18 Apr 2016 16:53:19
Rather Reus than Mkhytaryan as he is a floaty number 10 type and we have loads of them, Reus is able to play anywhere on the front line.

7.) 18 Apr 2016 20:03:07
Reus would be a good replace for coutinho if he was sold . I know i said I would rather give Ojo and Ibe a chance but because Walcott not at Reus level or even coutinho.

Carra, fantastic update as ever. Unfortunately, it doesn't matter whether Professor Klopp is keeping an eye on Awoniyi, the player is as far away from a work permit as the day he arrived.

Neither Awoniyi, Allan Rodrigues or Arroyo will ever play for our club as a few minutes on the Gov. UK website will confirm. Sad but true.

No club in any of the top leagues in Europe will pay a fee of any size for Sturridge, mostly for reasons of insurance.

China or USA, well that's another matter.

Arroyo, just like Allan Rodrigues and Taiwo Awoniyi, is as far away from a work permit as the day they signed. None will ever start an official first team game for LFC. Sad but true.

I'm with Firmane on this, I expect Lovren to leave before Matip. Lovren is a great guy by all accounts but he has never managed to start 30 league games in any season in his career and that won't improve now he is in his thirties.

We have sixteen players out on loan, in my view all but Harry Wilson will leave this summer especially the three non-work permit guys. The ink is dry on Danny Ings' Southampton contract.

Sturridge, Moreno and eight U23 players have exactly 50 days remaining on their LFC contracts, leaving at midnight on June 30th.

Apart from all of these I expect Shaqiri, Lallana, Lovren, Corey Whelan and James Milner to leave. Rafael Camacho has already asked to leave.

Over each of the last four summers an average of 29 players have left the club in a mixture of permanent and temporary moves, the Eds usually let me list them as the window closes.

Fabinho and Keita fully settled and accustomed to the Premier League would be fantastic. Apart from that, a quality centre-back to cover for Gomez and Van Dijk. Matip or Lovren can be fourth choice.

Matip seems to have edged ahead of Lovren to be our fourth choice CB next season. What we don't have is an adequate replacement for Van Dijk or Gomez when they are unavailable. This will be addressed in the summer window.
