BBC Gossip linking Pepe Reina with a return.

1.) 01 Jun 2016 00:45:04
Surely not. was past his best when he left and we have just signed a keeper.

2.) 01 Jun 2016 09:19:11
Interesting link. His distribution is definitely right up Klopp's street, but he did have a couple of error strewn seasons before he left. At only 33, he's still young for a keeper.

My view is this would only be credible if Migs was on his way out. Leaving Karius and Reina to fight it out for a starting position - probably Pepe to start off with - and then Ward to come back after a year long loan.

I think it could be a very shrewd move with an experienced, generally reliable keeper who plays to the strengths of the team, with Karius then learning and adapting as heir to the jersey.

Wouldnt be too upset if that transpires, but having Migs, Reina, and Karius, as well as Ward on loan, would be crazy!

3.) 01 Jun 2016 13:23:58
Just wondering, if the above does transpire, and Reina comes in and Migs leaves, has there ever been a situation where a player has been bought to replace someone else, who leaves, and then comes back to replace the replacement?!

Only one I can think of is Rushie and Aldo, albeit Aldo stayed for a bit longer and overlapped with a returning Rushie for a season.

Any others? Any clubs.

4.) 01 Jun 2016 14:52:13
Only one I can think of is Lukaku at Chelsea who came as 'the new Drogba'. Then he left and Drogba came back.

5.) 01 Jun 2016 16:04:25
If you follow the BBC link to the star article (which itself was a rehash of an old foreign article) you see it was clearly written before we signed Karius but only just published. Bizarre.

6.) 01 Jun 2016 16:13:23
I would love him back at the club, rogers made a boo boo letting him leave IMO. A great back up option who could genuinely push for No.1 spot.

7.) 01 Jun 2016 22:03:49
Wrong, Von. I wanted BR gone but giving Reina the boot was one of the best decisions he ver made. The man was aweful for two years prior yet was taking the mick out of us boys saying he would either leave or stay while winking at Barcelona to come for him. If another player did that, you'd be on to of him like rash but because its Pepe, you give him a pass. He is old and no longer wanted here. Karius is the future, end of.

8.) 02 Jun 2016 08:14:22
Pepe seemed to lose his desire IMO, a bit like Enrique but not as marked.



25 May 2016 16:37:14

1.) 25 May 2016 16:50:48
Joel Matip is not £0
He took £3.8 million signing fee.

2.) 25 May 2016 17:14:18
Mid table signings.

3.) 25 May 2016 17:20:17
Well what do u expect . Lfc are mid table

This is that wonderful time of the year where clubs will tel Liverpool . He cost 5 . 10 . 15 . Or 20 or 30 million. And lfc will offer 2 or 6 or 11 or 13 or 26 million
Spurs Chelsea and any other club will pay the money straight away . Get their man. And lfc will be buying the 3rs or 4th choice option . End up mid table again because their results are inconsistent and average with highs and lows theougout the season
It's just a fact

Liverpool should be selling lallana and definitely coutinho complete overrated players. Play one game score and then go missing for ten and then pop up with 1 good game then disappear

And then one of them ends up with lots of awards at the end! Wow.

4.) 25 May 2016 17:33:54
Ja Kurtz i wonder, do you think we should only spend above our means, only buy "marquee" signing. Do you think Mahrez and Kante were giant names in football for only the top clubs in Europe when they signed for Leicester. I find that a ridiculous statement by you, but to be fair you are allowed your opinion and me mine.

5.) 25 May 2016 17:36:09
Have we learned nothing from Leicester this year? Don't write players off as "mid table" signings without actually seeing them in action for Liverpool. I'm sure if we'd signed Mahrez or Kante when they were unknown i'm sure they'd have been criticised too.
£20 million doesn't necessarily get you quality as we have proven many times in recent years. And as Leicester have proved a good team is better than 11 stars.

6.) 25 May 2016 17:41:40
Can't say that for grujic and Karius as they are young and full of potential, may turn out to be top signings.

7.) 25 May 2016 17:57:10
I don't actually mean that we are looking at bad players or that won't be good. What I mean is we need a hell of a lot more instant quality than we are looking at right now to close the gap.

8.) 25 May 2016 18:02:27
Maybe seem mid table signings on paper but so do Leicesters entire current squad - if they fit in to klopps system and play with the heart he seems to demand, welcome aboard. Rather have that than a big name for 40 mil who doesnt. Happy to spend the cash for someone of proven class to elevate the team but for now let's hope 15 mil for 3 players turns out to be shrewd business and the start of us not over paying for not even nailed on quality buys.

9.) 25 May 2016 18:23:57
Red lobster, you are a clown and need to see a doctor as soon as possible. Sell Couthino I hope you are messing because if we continue to sell our better players we are going nowhere fast and it's idiots like you who will be complaining about the constant turnover of players year after you but yet expect us to compete without trying to get a team that is settled and actually buy into a certain style of play.

10.) 25 May 2016 17:53:38
We are also after a winger- the eds mentioned an interest in rafa silva.

11.) 25 May 2016 18:56:38
Kurtz writing the team off even before the season starts, now that's a surprise.

{Ed091's Note - kurtz is a troll. Ignore him.

12.) 25 May 2016 19:05:17
Philippe Coutinho is not as irreplaceable as most people think as he is more than capable of changing a game but he is too inconsistent at the same time and goes missing for large periods of a season. Jurgen Klopp doesn't build squads around a single player and will instill even more camaraderie amongst our players and they will progress under his guidance. If we are going to play 433 next season then we need a CB, LB, RW and LW as we are stacked in every other position.

13.) 25 May 2016 19:11:46
Fans like him must fill the team full of confidence. Clown.

14.) 25 May 2016 20:09:26
Red Lobster is a troll who predicts us to lose every game. Pay no attention.

15.) 25 May 2016 20:12:55
Yeah ignore me :) bet what I say happens though.

16.) 25 May 2016 20:21:57
Yeah let's see how LFC get on next season if we lose Coutinho. Some people here!

17.) 25 May 2016 23:34:03
It's not about spending a lot of money, it's about going and getting your first choice option.



07 May 2016 15:20:39
Shkodran Mustafi

Liverpool are contemplating a move for Valencia centre back Shkodran Mustafi. He is 24 years old and spent several years at Everton before being released in January 2012 and signed with Sampdoria. He played over 50 Serie A games and even scored a goal against in Atalanta 2014. After 2 and a half years in Italy Valencia offered a reported €8 million which was accepted and has since played over 60 games and scored 6 goals in La Liga. He is a full German international and was a member of the 2014 World Cup winning squad and made several appearances during the the tournament. With the suspension hanging over Mamadou Sakho's head and the unsuccessful season that Valencia have endured could mean now is the perfect time to approach the young German.

1.) 07 May 2016 15:40:33
Per the Ed's, he will have a number of options come the summer.

2.) 08 May 2016 03:23:57
Cant imagine if he is a target that he will be coming cheaply.

3.) 08 May 2016 07:10:49
Is there a German international we haven't been linked with yet?

4.) 08 May 2016 10:34:15
All the german internationals are a somekscreen, for we have gone all out with our war-chest for the One to Rule Them All - M. Reus.

5.) 08 May 2016 14:53:42
All apart from klinsmann and Voller! Ps i'm sure lothar Matheus could still do a job!

6.) 09 May 2016 18:28:52
I think that we will always be linked with German players as under Rafa Benitez we were linked with most Spanish players.

7.) 10 May 2016 12:51:23
As I remember, we bought a lot of Spanish players while Rafa Benitez was the gaffer.



25 Dec 2015 23:15:08
Latest rumours suggest that we may sign a defender and striker in January to cover the consistent injuries obtained by these positions. Nevan Subotic and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Dortmund. This I believe is largely lazy journalism as they are also claiming that Lucas may be sold to raise some funds. I can see some departures within the next 5 weeks and more drastic changes in the summer. let's not forget that we still have Joe Gomez and Danny Ings to return from injury during the summer and hopefully Jon Flanagan would have showed enough resilience to not only earn a new contract but also our starting right back berth. Top four is in our hands now as most of the tougher opponents need to visit Anfield and it is time the Kop woke up and started intimidating the opposition again.

1.) 26 Dec 2015 02:45:18
There's no way Dortmund sells Auba when they're competing for a CL spot in Europa (and doing well at it) and also still in contentious for the Bundesliga title (in 2nd behind Bayern) .

2.) 26 Dec 2015 17:21:34
Aubameyang. as cover. genius! No really! Might want to lay off that sherry trifle a bit.

3.) 27 Dec 2015 12:57:41
Heard a similar rumour that Messi might be brought in case Llalana does his hammy.

4.) 28 Dec 2015 04:22:17
Flanagan to start? Over Clyne? You're having a right laugh mate.

{Ed001's Note - Flanno at his best is a far better player, the only question is if he can get back to his best.}

5.) 30 Dec 2015 01:43:32
No way is Flanno a better defender than Clynne in any shape or form.

{Ed001's Note - yes he is. Bizarre how people forget how good Flanno was, while overlooking just how poor Clyne has been.}



25 Oct 2015 12:03:02
Now Tim Sherwood has finally been relieved of his duties by Aston Villa Tiago Ilori may force his way into the first team picture. This will allow Jurgen Klopp to assess whether or not he will be returning to us next season. Apparently JK is speaking with the agent of Mario Balotelli to assess hhow Mario sees his future.

Hello Reds, it's been a long time since I've been on here.

After the draw with Watford and the window still open who should we target as VDV and Keita appear to be unlikely.

1.) 13 Aug 2017 19:34:18
Van der vaart is a bit past it. Would've been a shout in his prime.

2.) 13 Aug 2017 19:57:10
It's ok Scouse pride, I'm always getting mixed up and calling Van Dyke, Van Der Vaart. Don't know why.

Merry Christmas to all of the reds and eds.

{Ed001's Note - merry Xmas mate.}

1.) 25 Dec 2016 15:57:50
Merry Christmas Scouse Pride, all the Reds and eds, WDS, the Nose and Kirikou.
3 games in 6 days coming up, 9 points in the bag 😎.

2.) 25 Dec 2016 16:25:58
9 points with Chelsea to drop some would set up a great second half of the season.

3.) 25 Dec 2016 18:10:49
I'll second all of the above!

I know the eds will be sick of Christmas wishes by now but we all mean it wholeheartedly because they are nothing short of legends!

I don't post too often but read avidly for the slightest bit of new info which i know will be genuine.

Here's to the upcoming second half of the season and the excitement it's going to bring regardless of the outcome.

And finally because i've had a few ales, thanks to Ron for being the unwavering voice of optimism on here. Always much appreciated as well as needed!



26 Jun 2016 12:46:42
I don't understand the criticism that we are placing on the club regarding transfers. The window is not even open yet and we have signed a goalkeeper, a centre back and a central midfielder as well as having a bid pending on Poitr Zielinski and are actively pursuing Ben Chilwell and Saido Mane. Jurgen Klopp will need to see what we have at our disposal regarding players returning from loans and which players need to be replaced. Adam Bogdan, Martin Skrtel, Joe Allen and Mario Balotelli seemed to be nailed on departures if we can find a buyer at an acceptable offer as well as making other members of our squad available for transfer. We have a bloated squad and need to reduce this to amend our financial availability and proving to potential signings that they will be getting playing time. The likelihood of signing a top quality player this summer is slim to not having European football and many top agents unhappy with the referendum result. Until September 1st we need to take all of this into account before criticising the club.

1.) 26 Jun 2016 14:16:59
I think the criticism may stem from the fact that, other than Mane, the players we've been linked with are basically unknowns, and don't really excite.

{Ed002's Note - You mean they are not "marquee" signings?}

2.) 26 Jun 2016 14:37:06
I agree totally. I hate the term marquee signings as its instantly puts unwanted pressure on the player to perform as fans think they should be winning games singlehandedly. Mane has been hung out to dry by our so called fans (the same that ostracised Origi before he had even kicked a ball) . I like Mane and if he signs along with whoever else I will support them. Just because they aren't a big name (or Reus) doesn't mean they aren't worthy of playing for Liverpool. I hope he proves people wrong.

3.) 26 Jun 2016 15:11:54
Acrock I think Mane is a good signing, but if we're talking 'marquee signings', those types of player should thrive on the pressure, and would have confidence in their ability to go out and do the business. Look at Bale. He's carried Wales through the qualification rounds, and now he's doing it again in the tournament itself. Does it look like he's feeling the pressure? There's nothing wrong with marquee signings. I'd rather pay top dollar for proven quality, than take a chance on an unknown.

4.) 27 Jun 2016 02:23:00
don't get all the fuss, how do u expect these players to perform wi an oversized tent strapped to their backs:)



11 Jun 2016 18:55:15
Well done to both Danny Ward and Joe Allen, now for them to send England home and it'll be a good summer.

1.) 11 Jun 2016 19:30:12
Steady on!
They only beat Slovakia. now you think they can take England out. 😂.

2.) 11 Jun 2016 19:54:01
England are overrated.

3.) 11 Jun 2016 20:31:15
Welshman here, but I think England are dark horses for the euros. Wales after today tho have a win in the bad and nothing to lose. England have all the pressure.

4.) 11 Jun 2016 22:41:08
Lol redphil. England have been the darkest horses for eternity. If they win it I'll give a hundred quid to charity. Hell if they even they get out of the group I'll give twenty quid.



28 May 2016 16:10:16
Many people that regularly watch the Bundesliga highly rate Joel Matip. I have seen him once or twice and to be honest he never stood out but that could be seen as a good thing as he made no mistakes. Can anybody here answer the following for me please:

Question 1: Has anybody seen regularly him play?

Question 2: Is he an improvement on what we already possess?

Question 3: How is his tactical positioning?


1.) 28 May 2016 16:50:58
He's quality lad, big and strong like sakho. Scores a good few headers from set pieces, he brings the ball out like Ferdinand used to. He will be the first defender on the team sheet and signing of the season imo.

2.) 28 May 2016 17:27:27
I can give some information on him that I came across.

WIthout a doubt, Matip is a unique central defender. While he possesses several positive attributes including frightening length, tremendous passing abilities, great anticipation skills (averaging just under four interceptions per match) and outstanding pace, Matip’s most coveted skill might be his ability to win the ball, especially in the air.

According to Squwaka, Matip has won 56% of all duels this season. More importantly, the Cameroonian has come out of aerial duels with a success rate of 75% (60/ 81). To add some perspective to this statistic, Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho have won 67% and 65% of their aerial duels respectively while Croatian international Dejan Lovren has won an astounding 80% of his aerial duels this season.
In regards to his passing abilities, Matip holds the fourth highest passing rate in Schalke’s current squad at 84%, and the second highest for defenders only trailing Howedes (86% accuracy) . His versatility has played quite a role in his impressive passing statistics and technical abilities. While having to adjust to playing as a deep lying midfielder along with learning the ways of central defense, Matip was forced to hone his raw football skills which transformed him into the unique player he is today. As a defender that possesses midfield-like skills, Matip has the opportunity to cause havoc for opposing clubs every match.

Finally, his experience in the Bundesliga and European competition is impressive to say the least. At just 24 years old, Matip has tallied nearly 250 appearances for Schalke’s senior team, including just under 50 appearances in European competition.


Like all footballers, Matip has his weaknesses even though they are not glaring. At points, his lack of patience and control sees him lunge into tackles, something Liverpool supporters are no strangers to. Although he hasn’t put his team in any terrible danger in 2015-16 with these challenges, these very rare, cringe-worthy moments would not be appreciated by the Kop.
Matip also exhibits an ambition that is envious at times, however this ambition can be a negative for the defender. As we already know, Matip has the confidence and skill set of both a defensive mid and a center back. This confidence can get the better of him at times and hinder his decision making in defense. If Matip can eliminate desperately lunging at the ball and become in control when going into tackles

3.) 28 May 2016 18:05:45
Frightening length lol brilliant.

4.) 28 May 2016 17:32:28
Matip lacks pace which is not included in your weakness.

5.) 28 May 2016 18:42:41
Not sure what his frightening length has to do with his footballing skills. Could be a bit of a bust up in the showers though as I've heard Joe Allen's member slaps his ankles as he scrubs his hair. Not sure he will be pleased with the competition.

6.) 28 May 2016 20:15:23
Harry, have you ever seen Matip play? You feel like you've said this a few times when the simple fact is you're just wrong. His pace is not an issue.

7.) 28 May 2016 20:26:26
Does Matip have a more frightening length than sakho?

8.) 28 May 2016 23:10:42
Thanks for all of your responses.
Does he tuck his frightening length into his socks and does he get booked when it slaps other players haha!
