Morning Eds,

Any update on Adrien Rabiot I remember a while back that it was touted that Klopp and Liverpool were keen.

Has it cooled or are we still interested in signing him?

{Ed001's Note - we are not going to meet his financial expectations.}

1.) 24 May 2019 10:36:43
I’m quite interested to see where he ends up, you would assume he would of agreed somewhere in the background.

As you say, whilst he is a “free transfer” his total costs will be astronomical.

Where do you think he will end up?

{Ed001's Note - not a clue, maybe Man Utd due to the costs involved.}

2.) 24 May 2019 10:42:38
His mum was a big part of the problem wasn't she?

3.) 24 May 2019 12:43:42
Thanks for the heads up Ed001,

a talented lad that's for sure. As stated, you would think a move would be close to happening or if not completed already.

Money talks! Sadly.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

4.) 24 May 2019 12:58:46
If Ramsey is getting those daft wages at Juve on the open market Rabiot will want something similar.

5.) 24 May 2019 14:02:21
Don’t see why we need another midfielder to be honest.

6.) 24 May 2019 14:31:36
It's a common theme these days for players who let their contract run down then go looking for whatever club will pay him the most. Meyer going to Palace, for example. I wouldn't want any player that thinks he the dog's b*/ / #x or puts money first. It's pretty short-sighted and usually not in the best interest of their career. Pricing themselves out of a deal with a top team and ending up at a mid-table club for more money shows they value money over ambition. Have fun at Old Trafford, Adrien, we have no place for mercenaries.

{Ed001's Note - there is a lot more to it than that.}

7.) 24 May 2019 15:35:24
Has been treated like poo at PSG, I would run down my contract too if I was in his shoes.

8.) 24 May 2019 16:24:08
What goes around, comes around. Takes two hands to clap. It's life. Two sides to everything. If he got poo'd on he must have done some pooing himself. 🤷‍♂️.

{Ed001's Note - that is absolute nonsense. Innocent people are murdered every day for nothing other than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. They haven't done 'some pooing'. Life is not like that at all. The rich poo on the poor all the time for no reason other than they are poor and can be taken advantage of.}

9.) 24 May 2019 17:20:53
He hasn't played in 6 months.

10.) 25 May 2019 08:57:28
Sounds like he could be a 'problem child' from my limited reading on his issues at PSG so I'd rather pass.



23 Jan 2019 11:17:26
So twitter world going nuts over Mo deleting his account after a cryptic message.

So here starts the paranoia!

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what has happened but I have explained about his agent demanding referee's provide him with protection from other players calling him "cheat" easch time he dives. This apparently constitutes them not showing respect to him. For now, he does not appear to have any options even if Liverpool would sell - again I have explained what has happened in respect of Real Madrid. I would not worry about anything at this time.}

1.) 23 Jan 2019 12:45:16
Maybe he just wants no distractions for the run in. Wouldn’t worry.

2.) 23 Jan 2019 17:47:36
His last comment wasn't that cryptic. He's basically saying he has enough of the social media way of making contact with people and it's "time to get in touch for real".
I wouldn't read to much into it or give it legs.

{Ed002's Note - You want him to touch you? For real, where?}

3.) 23 Jan 2019 18:03:18
But Ed002 "He's Mo Salah he can do what he wants" lol.

4.) 23 Jan 2019 21:20:42
Sometimes you just set yourself up with those killer lines from ED02!

5.) 24 Jan 2019 00:45:57
His agent doing no one any favours then.

6.) 24 Jan 2019 05:28:36
Ed002 Killing it. I thought Ed025 will be your big rival. But recently, his lines are like Everton results ;)

7.) 24 Jan 2019 13:35:52
Delighted he’s left social media, well done Mo 👏.



15 Jan 2019 12:14:49
Any one else hear that TAA is out for at least 4 weeks?

1.) 15 Jan 2019 12:20:22
I have not heard that but that is worrying news. Might have to resort to Fabinho or Milner filling in there.

2.) 15 Jan 2019 12:29:40
Confirmed, Gini a doubt for the weekend too.

3.) 15 Jan 2019 12:39:59
Never understood the Clyne situation. End of season yes season short sighted. Gomez and TAA out. Has to play Milner. can't play Camacho against Zaha.

4.) 15 Jan 2019 12:41:59
Hopefully Matip is fit enough because he'll need to play CB with Milner or Fabinho RB!

Goodness me these injuries!

5.) 15 Jan 2019 12:48:24
play fabinho CB and milner RB. think we well be just fine.

6.) 15 Jan 2019 13:21:36
If we play Fabinho CB and Milner RB then we are left with only Hendo and Kieta in midfield as Gini is also injured.

7.) 15 Jan 2019 13:24:05
Don't forget that Hoever (who came on at CB against Wolves), his natural position is at RB. Maybe he'll be on the bench as cover, but he certainly looked more than competent when he played.

8.) 15 Jan 2019 13:26:41
We will be Ok

Robertson VanDijk Fabinho Milner.

9.) 15 Jan 2019 14:05:19
Matip was on the bench V Brighton so he could well be back in the starting 11 for the Palace match.

10.) 15 Jan 2019 14:28:52
Absolutely no need for panic chaps. We can still put out a strong defence/ midfield against Crystal Palace :


Milner Matip VVD Robbo

Fab Hendo

Shaq Bobby Sadio


11.) 15 Jan 2019 14:38:31
Hoever's natural position is not RB, he is a CB.

He has been playing RB above his age group much like Joe Gomez did for a long time.

Also, I don't think he should be thrown in any time soon. He is doing very well progressing where he is. The Wolves game should've been a nice cameo for him for 20 minutes at the end, instead he was thrown into the cauldron in a disjointed team.

I would rather play Fabinho and Milner out of position rather than put a 16yr old into the firing line. What if he makes a mistake that costs us a game, or even worse costs us the title? He might never recovery as the "fans" would destroy him.

I think there's a time and a place for young players to be bedded in. As we reach the business end of the season when we're closer to the league title than we have been in years. that's not the right time.

By all means have him on the bench and give him minutes, but don't pin our hopes on him.

12.) 15 Jan 2019 14:56:19
We should absolutely not be relying on a 16yr old in critical PL matches. Milner is a better RB than Clyne so happy to see him start there any day and still have Hendo, Gini, Keita and Shaqiri for midfield. and Fabinho too when Matip and Gomez back.

It’s gutting to see him injured but not a crisis, we have quite a few players who can cover there.

13.) 15 Jan 2019 16:00:13
Talksport reporting it .

14.) 15 Jan 2019 16:36:26
We won’t be relying on him let’s get the lad on the bench and give him more confidence how will we no how good he is unless we try him again.

15.) 15 Jan 2019 16:40:01
If hoever is on a red card from an under 23 s match does this apply to the premier league?

16.) 15 Jan 2019 17:10:37
Love of god Matip is back already Gomez is not far behind milly will play RB.

17.) 15 Jan 2019 17:13:22
Says 2 weeks on BBC, it was done in the warm up before kick off. Should be ok with Fab the new Steve Harkness. 😁.

18.) 15 Jan 2019 17:21:40
I agree with you Reusch. If you're good enough, you're old enough.

Jack Robinson if I remember correctly made his debut against Arsenal at 17 and did very well. Milner, Rooney, Lennon and Jeffers all got thrown in at the deep end at 16. Owen, Mcmanaman and Fowler got a chance at a young age too. Gomez and Trent are now first team regulars too after being given a chance and trusted.

19.) 15 Jan 2019 18:26:16
Epic-How many centre backs have played at 16?

20.) 15 Jan 2019 18:31:44
Cobra666 - The only one I can think of is West Ham's Reece Oxford. Didn't he get man of the match on his debut against Arsenal?

I am however referring to the right back slot, but Hoever showed perfectly capable in the centre.

21.) 15 Jan 2019 18:34:39
Also, Hoever turns 17 on Friday. Happy Birthday to him :)

22.) 15 Jan 2019 20:04:40
Milner will cover RB, no problem, Matip will play, then I think we have a 2 week break, so most players out should be back by then,
Gomez will be like a new player for us,
I think by the end of the season, people will think that VVD and Gomez are probably the best centre half partnership in the world .

23.) 15 Jan 2019 21:24:44
Epic every player you mentioned there is a forward or winger where you can afford to make more mistakes. At the back you simply can’t. If we had a 16 year old at the back Palace would target him with everything they’ve got and it could set him back immeasurably.
Why not just player Milner there who we know we can trust until Gomez and TAA are back. Simples.

24.) 16 Jan 2019 00:09:30
Agree Bobby.

Comments like ‘if you’re good enough, you’re old enough’ are fine, but it’s also about when you choose to introduce inexperienced youth players and against whom.

In a close title race, in a defensive position (where a mistake costs a goal, not lost possession) and against a player like Zaha would not make any sense to me when you have Milner and Fabinho as established international pros more than capable of playing in that position.

Hoever will get him time, but I don’t see Klopp taking a risk like that at this stage.

25.) 16 Jan 2019 00:52:38
Now look, TAA is injured. should have kept martin kelly.

26.) 16 Jan 2019 04:00:33
A 16 year old cannot have a natural position, he’s 16!

27.) 16 Jan 2019 09:27:17
BB I think this game will be too soon for Hoever but a lot of great defenders have made their debut at 17.

Varane - 17
Mendy - 16
Marquinhos - 17
Gimenez - 17
Laporte - 17
Sule - 17
De ligt - 17

Even in the prem you have

Ferdinand - 17
Bellerin -18
Barry - 17 (maybe played midfield)

At some point you have to give the kids a chance otherwise what's the point in the academy.

28.) 16 Jan 2019 16:22:50
Bobby, not really. Robinson, Trent and Gomez aren't strikers or wingers.

I also replied to Cobra about any other Premier League defender starting at the age of 16, and which I could only think of Reece Oxford at West Ham making his debut in their season opener against Arsenal. I know his chances have been limited since then, but a MotM awarded in that game does suggest that he did a bit more than OK.

The list above that Happy Red Pants put forward says a lot. Some of those defenders are some of the best in Europe and they started young. Wouldn't you want Hoever to be mentioned in the same breath as some of those players?

And for the record, I'm not saying that he should be picked ahead of Fabinho or Milner. I'm merely saying that he's an "option" and the idea of such shouldn't be discarded because he's only just turning 17.



17 Oct 2018 08:26:30
Any update on Lallana's return?

1.) 17 Oct 2018 11:47:59
He's fit but now faces a battle to get into the starting 11.

2.) 17 Oct 2018 16:34:49
He might just get a game Saturday. Milner, Mane, Naby, Salah all doubtful by the looks of things.

3.) 17 Oct 2018 17:46:50
Alisson, A. Arnold, Gomez, Lovren, Robertson, Henderson, Lallana, Wijnaldum, Shaqiri, Firmino, Sturridge.

If VanDijk, Milner, Keita, Salah and Mane are unavailable.

Pretty strong lineup and enough to get 3 points vs Huddlefield.

After last nights changes I would say it will be the same starting 11 for me. Maybe the only change I see Klopp making is Bobby for Divvy if Bobby is fit.

Something tells me for the run in we will be seeing more of the high press game from Liverpool. Last night was the 1st time in a long time I seen the team press the way they did.

Looking forward to Sunday hopefully the ball keeps rolling.

1.) 28 Feb 2019 11:03:34
Henderson definitely starts the derby. Expecting Hendo, Milner and Keita to play in midfield and Origi should continue as he likes scoring against Everton.

2.) 28 Feb 2019 11:19:28
Fab will start he’s been quailty.

3.) 28 Feb 2019 11:33:42
Why would Fabinho be dropped IB?

4.) 28 Feb 2019 11:33:50
Fab is a starter all day long for me now.

5.) 28 Feb 2019 11:41:47
No way on earth fab isn’t 1st name down for midfield on the team sheet at the moment.

6.) 28 Feb 2019 11:51:49
Ori Man Sal
Fab Wij Kei.

7.) 28 Feb 2019 11:54:13
Why should Hendo play? He can't play at Milners last night tempo, Fabs is far better in the holding role. For me Hendo is 5th or 6th choice right now.

8.) 28 Feb 2019 12:02:40
If Klopp has any sense and its not a bash at any players, he should start with the same team as he did against Watford and bring on Henderson and Firmino if we need to make changes later in the game.

9.) 28 Feb 2019 12:21:18
Drop fabinho and gini? No way are they both being left out.

10.) 28 Feb 2019 12:27:40
Why should Henderson play IB? Both Wijnaldum and Fabinho retains their spot and if klopp drops either of them then he is a fool. Henderson doesn’t score goals to play further up. Play Keïta there!

11.) 28 Feb 2019 12:40:33
I think Klopp will drop Milner for Henderson. Origi's performance may give Klopp confidence to allow Bobby a place on the bench for extra rest unless we really need him later in the match.

12.) 28 Feb 2019 15:39:14
Horses for courses. Henderson is an asset well worth having. When he comes on as a sub I'm always pleased to see him. Not like matip coming on at 1 0 up with 8 minutes to go. He sures things up.

13.) 28 Feb 2019 18:46:20
If anyone has been paying attention to what Klopp does before a Merseyside derby, you will find that Klopp does not start Hendo the game b4 said derby. He did it last season and then this season already. We beat B'mouth (b4 the Everton game) and Hendo came on. Hendo started the Derby. I expect that to be the same. It will be Hendo/ Wiji/ Fab with Keita, Milner and Shaq to come on when needed.

Now I think Stone is correct. Klopp now knows he is under NO pressure to start Bobby if he is not sure he can give his all for the full 90 so he can keep him fresh and bring him on later to further torment the Bitters. On to Sunday.

14.) 28 Feb 2019 22:18:18
We will see Red but I don't think Hendo will play from the start. We have better players in front of him in the squad. Time will tell.



11 Oct 2018 15:07:47
Any ideas when the fixture change for Dec onwards is out?
In Liverpool a few weekends and trying to see what's possible. Arsenal would be good but im 100% sure that will be changed for TV.
