Barca to bid for Lallana?

Anything in this ed002? Is Lallana going to fulfill his destiny and start Cryuff-turning in the camp nou?

Ron Keague

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest from Barcelona but I am told he is on a list of possibles for Juventus - but lots of folks are.}

Looks like Sergi Canos is off to Bristol City.

Good luck Sergi YNWA.

Shame as he clearly has potential. The lad could really have shown a bit of patience and maybe left on loan than permanently. Maybe he saw us signing Mane and knew Ojo was ahead of him in the pecking order, so cannot really blame him on the other hand either.
Best of luck Sergi.


2.) 27 Jun 2016 05:43:39
If LFC is not giving these youngsters game time then set them free, there have been too many players futures have been dented or destroyed because of hoarding.


3.) 27 Jun 2016 07:45:22
Apparently it's 2.5 million, with large sell on fee and buy back clause. Way to stick it to the smaller clubs.


4.) 27 Jun 2016 07:51:39
Are you suggesting we just let players that we have invested in go for free Frisky? I wouldn't let you run my business.


5.) 27 Jun 2016 08:12:31
All big clubs like Real, Barcelona and Bayern have these clauses and used them especially buy back clauses on players like Alba, Denis Suarez, Kroos, Alaba, Lahm, Morata and so on. Didn't hear you moan about it then, Frisky.


6.) 27 Jun 2016 08:13:21
I read he was leaving as we wouldn't match his 10k a week wage demands which would make him the highest paid player in the academy? don't know how true that is though.


7.) 27 Jun 2016 08:15:21
No johnnyr1970, I am saying have a good business plan.


8.) 27 Jun 2016 09:55:52
Basically you're right Carra he wanted £10,000 per week.


9.) 27 Jun 2016 10:07:53
I think it's the right move for the player and the club.


10.) 27 Jun 2016 12:11:30
If he was good enough he would have been given a chance, or maybe a bigger club may have took him than Bristol City. Just because he plays for us does not
Make him instant world class.


11.) 27 Jun 2016 12:32:25
Well at least reports suggesting clauses being put in so that's all you can do if you can't give the lad game time. Well done an good luck.

Not going to go into depth about my thoughts on yesterday, just a few key observations:
We played really well, it was a very good performance against the champions. If you play that well and don't get a win you can still come away from the game feeling satisfied. Reproduce that performance against the rest of the premier league and we will be challenging for the title.

I have to give a mention to Moreno who had a shocker against Sevilla but was just behind Salah as being my Man of the Match yesterday. Well played Alberto, you should be proud of that performance, that's comfortably the best I've seen him play. 👏.

Ron Keague

1.) 26 Nov 2017 19:39:41
I thought it was one of our worst this season. Chelsea played defensive and were very poor going forward.

Despite being poor going forward with little or no invention they still managed to open us up on numerous occasions with the most basic and predictable moves.

Glad of the point and the performances of Gomez, Chamberlain and Salah.

Big picture, there is lot to do let's say.


2.) 26 Nov 2017 20:28:16
Davey, I agree that there is still work to be done BUT you ommited that they were able to open us up cios they capitalized on the fact that we were the only the team on the front foot, they weren't as they parked the bos which meant that any time they turned us over, we were open to their counters. The main reason for that was the lack of cover from midfield Milner and Cou offered NO cover nor help to the team in defensive situations. That is why they looked dangerous on the counter, nothing more.

I do agree with Ron that w/ our lineup on the day, we could have beaten a very disappointing, bus parking Chelsea team had the fluke goal (Mig's error? ) not happened esp. since the defence was very good on the day and did its job to force Willian wide to make the cross as difficult as possible. We learn and we move on.


 

 

26 Sep 2017 04:06:59
Pontus Jansson?

Anyone seen much of him? Would he be an option for January? From the limited amount I've seen he seems to tick a lot of boxes - dominant in the air, rapid for a big lad, good timing and execution of tackles, reads the game so intercepts well and good ball skills in possession.
Looks like a good prospect for probably less than half the price of a VVD.

Ron Keague

1.) 26 Sep 2017 09:34:21
Never seen him play Ron but now you have mentioned him I'll try and keep an eye out for Leeds games. Buying him from the championship he should cost a lot less than half the VVD fee I'd like to think.

{Ed002's Note - What VVD fee is that?}


2.) 26 Sep 2017 10:48:14
id rather have someone with loads of experience to partner gomez in defence ron. someone like i might get burnt alive for this john o'shea or reid. someone a mix of old school defending and moderate pace.


3.) 26 Sep 2017 11:52:08
Reported Asking price I meant Ed 02 not the fee.

{Ed002's Note - There is no asking price as Southampton made it clear to the interested sides (which doesn't include Liverpool) that he is not for sale.}


4.) 26 Sep 2017 13:21:42
Fair enough akshit but Janssen has a season and this season in England plus 3 seasons in Italy. He's also played international football.
He could be as big a signing as Hyypia for me, except he's a lot quicker than Sami.

Have a look at him anyway, looks like a good signing.


5.) 26 Sep 2017 13:23:06
Actually Ed001, if you've time, a little player profile on Pontus would be good, or just your opinion 🤝.

{Ed001's Note - I would have to watch him again, but I will add him to the list of players. It was just dipping below treble figures then, so lucky you thought of someone else to add!}


6.) 26 Sep 2017 15:35:42
😂 99 are from Harry and one from me?

{Ed001's Note - actually I don't think any are from Harry, hard to tell as he changes his name so much it is easy to forget!}


7.) 26 Sep 2017 22:11:21
At the weekend I will be recommending we sign Man Utd players before the match 😁
Leeds had a bit of a mare tonight.

**Positive Post alert**

As others have mentioned, the champions league is all about qualifying for the next round. Considering the way our fixtures fall, we are still in good shape to qualify thanks to the other result.
•I expect us to draw in Moscow and win our 2 games with Maribor - gives us 8 points from 4 games.
•Sevilla will beat Maribor giving them 4 points from 2 games
•Moscow will have 2 points from 2 games.
•Maribor 1 point from 4 games will not be able to catch us.
A lot depends on the Sevilla/ Moscow games.
•If Sevilla win both, they have 10 points and qualify, we will need a point in Sevilla (already qual) or a point at home v Moscow.
•If Moscow win both we need a point in Sevilla to qualify or beat Moscow at home.
•2 draws - either win in Sevilla or draw at home with Moscow.
•win and a draw each means we have to win one of our last 2 games

Lots of "ifs and buts" but we are easily good enough to draw in Moscow and take 6 points off Maribor IMO.

Burnley game takes on more significance now, we need a confidence boost and Dyche will have his troops well organised. They've had good results at Chelsea and Spurs so it's not going to be easy. I expect a battle but I don't think they have anyone who can cope with Salah's pace. I'm going for 3-0 to LFC with Solanke getting a goal. 😎.

Ron Keague

1.) 14 Sep 2017 07:27:55
Ron, there is no way we keep a clean sheet against Burnley. They will score one on the break. Sad to say this but I think that will happen. They will put any forward with pace and power up front and target our defenders.


2.) 14 Sep 2017 07:46:25
What if Sevilla and Moscow beats us Ron? The least you expect from any CL team is to not drop points at HOME!


3.) 14 Sep 2017 08:16:35
Burnley might score Indian, they have had some great results already, I just don't think they will. Even if they do I back our attackers to break them down eventually.

As for Sevilla and Moscow, well yes, we could lose all our remaining games, including Maribor. This is the champions league after all and we've only just got into the group stages where we spectacularly failed last time.
Anything is possible, but I think we're good enough to qualify, Klopp has a good track record in the champions league and there are no stand out teams in our group.


4.) 14 Sep 2017 07:52:08
IB, so we better hope that our strikers are more ruthless than they were vs Sevilla cos had they been, we would be celebrating a real whitewash right now.


 

 

31 Aug 2017 19:29:44
Lots of people 'stunned', 'gutted' and 'devastated' we haven't signed a new centre back.
I think it's great news for Joe Gomez, he has a fantastic opportunity to make that position his own. He's currently picking up experience as a full back, getting his match fitness up. He has all the attributes he just doesn't have the experience. There will be no more in-comings before January so he has a good chance to get some game time.

If we'd signed a £70m VVD then this opportunity would be gone. I'm excited for the lad, I hope he saves us £70m and he could become a long term solution for us. He seems level headed and could be a future captain if he is handled the right way!

Ron Keague

1.) 31 Aug 2017 19:43:19
Here, here. Risky but here, here!


2.) 31 Aug 2017 19:47:47
Agree. Gomez just been made England under 21s captain also, really think he had a bright future.


3.) 31 Aug 2017 19:49:52
So how long will it take for Joe Gomez to bed in. When we are out of the champions league, league cup, race for top 4? We can put all the positive spin we want on it but not getting a CB in is a big mistake.


4.) 31 Aug 2017 19:50:16
Agree with Ron, let's hope he gets a chance and takes it .


5.) 31 Aug 2017 19:53:03
Sort of agree. Ideally I would have loved Vvd to directly replace lovren. Even though klopp has said he is happy with our cbs we know he definitely isn't happy with liven. Lovren to have been moved on immediately or maybe January would have been perfect. Leaving gomez with the same opportunities.


6.) 31 Aug 2017 20:04:22
I have no issues with Joe Gomez. I am very happy that he will get a chance in centre back and right back both this season and going forward. However, Lovren and Klavan.

Those are the two names that strike fear into my heart and they are both closer than Gomez to the centre back position. How can these two, Lovren in particular, be our second and third choice if we wish to push for a top 4 place!?

How is Lovren, the most inconsistent and error stricken centre back in the whole league, supposed to shore up our defence!? He is a liability, the fact that we have failed to strengthen in his position is incompetence of the highest order. We wasted months waiting for Southampton to decide Van Dijk's fate when they clearly said he would not be leaving. We had no backup option, ala Salah for Brandt.

We sent out feelers to Koulibaly and Mammama but they both came to nothing. So, it seems we have decided to stick with Lovren instead. That is just great. Fantastic news.

Now, Salah, Mane and Firmino have to score 3 or 4 goals every single game to stand a chance of winning matches. Lovren will always cost us goals, Mignolet also has it in him, Klavan is unreliable, Gomez is young but because of this lacks concentration at times, Matip is a good defender who at times looks poor because he is having to cover areas that both Lovren and Moreno have vacated.

It is so poor from Liverpool, in regards to strengthening a well-known weakness. Bringing in Salah and Solanke is great for squad depth, Coutinho staying could go either way depending on how he behaves this season. Although, personally, I want Coutinho gone. He has disrespected this club and behaved appallingly by feigning injury and not making himself available for important matches. The little rat will be welcomed back with open arms by the fans though and, in all honesty, I cannot understand why. Good, great player even, but he cannot be trusted.


7.) 31 Aug 2017 20:29:10
If we don't sign VVD tonight I do not think we will sign him at all. Liverpool have a habit that they don't return for previous targets. I can only think of Salah that has bucked that trend.

Baz.


 

 

30 Aug 2017 08:15:08
So VVD has not played any competitive football for 7-8 months after a bad injury.
Is it not extremely unlikely that he would pass a medical before tomorrow's deadline?

Ron Keague

1.) 30 Aug 2017 08:18:11
If we get Brazil's physio in to look at him Ron he will be good to go within minutes 😜.


2.) 30 Aug 2017 08:20:17
It's possible, but I am sure all Medicals are based on individual merits. LFC will be aware of his current fitness and will consider this as per the medical. As long as no underlying problems from scans etc. they will allow the medical through.


3.) 30 Aug 2017 08:21:00
We all know medicals don't really do fitness etc. Look at Carrol they're just they're for issues in the body that could increase the chances of injuries or problems Eg underlying heart problems or muscular issues. So wouldn't suggest it would be a problem Ron.


4.) 30 Aug 2017 08:28:34
He's been training at Southampton hasn't he? So why wouldn't he pass a medical?


5.) 30 Aug 2017 08:31:19
Well he trained and has done some recovery from his injury. I think as a Pro-Player you should allways be fit enough to pass those test. I don't think this will be the problem.


6.) 30 Aug 2017 08:35:08
We signed Aquaman from hospital bed!


7.) 30 Aug 2017 08:37:20
Ron, if a club wants you to pass a medical (esp. if you don't have some grave heart issue or anything like that), you will pass that medical, I can guarantee you that.


8.) 30 Aug 2017 08:42:37
If he was allowed to turn up he would pass it no problem. It's a medical not 22 selection.


9.) 30 Aug 2017 08:43:09
Medical would be to identify long term injury issues.


10.) 30 Aug 2017 08:50:56
Liverpool signed Aquilani who passed a medical with a broken leg, so I would say the medical is not the issue.


11.) 30 Aug 2017 08:51:39
If he's over his injury then he should just be a bit unfit . Shouldnt be an issue.
Id be more concerned that Pipsqueak fails his Barcelona medical after his horrific and debilitating back injury.


12.) 30 Aug 2017 08:56:52
He's been uninjured and training all summer, most recently with the U23s. Will need a long time to get match fit, but passing a medical won't be a problem.


13.) 30 Aug 2017 09:16:32
The concern is how long we have to be using our current psiting before he got fit.


14.) 30 Aug 2017 16:08:58
We took Aquaman under similar situation aye?

We've signed some phenomenal players over the last 20 years, too many to mention.

The problem is we've never really signed great players for the postions we're weakest in. We seem to stockpile certain positions of strength and ignore our biggest problem. Can't just blame the scouts for that, manager has to carry the can too.

{Ed001's Note - unless the reason it is happening is the scouting team are not identifying players for the problem positions.}

"Klopp has intimated (via Ed01's info) that he is hesitant to put Karius back in long term cos he is scared the fans will get on his back as soon as he makes a mistake"

Seriously? A manager who picks his team based on fear of fans reaction?

It's a shame he didn't take that into account last week.

I agree he will end up elsewhere.
If he came to Anfield now he would be under far too much pressure to succeed. I feel it would be a poor signing now.

We will have to look elsewhere, maybe we can just sign some more midfielders and some kids who will never play.
