Spoke to me mate who works within LFC - Fernando deal doesn't look likely to happen, he reckons another team other than ourselves are in for him and can offer him a more financially rewarding deal. He didn't say what team but I suspect City or United.

As for information surrounding Konoplyanka - he said he has none (or he didn't want to tell me).


1.) City are in for him and the porto defender.

2.) What he said would make sense then.



27 Jan 2014 11:26:55
Focusing on our own club: time is ticking and a move for anybody seems increasingly unlikely. Instead of chasing a left winger could we not give Jordan Ibe more game time? Has been impressing and, despite his age, shows huge promise. And surely blooding a youngster sooner rather than later is a good idea?

Only name I have heard mentioned was from a friend within the club who said, and I know this isn't new, that Fernando (The Octopus) is on the radar - IF the club pay over the odds for a man whose contract coming to an end they will get him. It is dependent on how necessary the club see's the signing in January.


1.) Since his contract is expiring soon why don't we try to sign him for next season? If we are so keen on him it would be sensible to sign for free instead of making a bid. It would certainly mean that having him signed up for next season we would be negotiating from a position of strength to get him now, just like Tottenham getting Holtby last season.

{Ed002's Note - It would not be for free - it would be for a significant signing on fee.}

2.) A few reports today suggest he may be on his way to Man Utd.

3.) I would not be surprised, that have the financial means and arguably the will to pay over the odds for a player with 6 months remaining on his contract - he would cost, I guess, about 8million. I doubt the owners will sanction that amount of money for a player whose contract is almost expired. My fingers are crossed but from the tone of voice my friend was speaking in he was obviously not in the throes of enthusiasm. Might be another near miss.

Hello eds, just curious as a friend mentioned his name with regards to Liverpool - have we (or any other teams) shown any interest in Havard Nordtveit of Monchengladbach? He's young and only going to get better, not sure we hold interest but me mate was convinced we'd had (or would be having) a look. ?

Reading through these pages it appears we've had scouts at a number of Lyon games with many speculating that we are pursuing Dejan Lovren (which would be great if we were) however, do you think we may have ran the rule over Samuel Umtiti instead? Any interest in him any other club?

Cheers for your time ed's

SMc {Ed002's Note - Liverpool showed interest in Nordtveit back in January last year and enquiries from PSG and Sunderland resulted in Borussia Monchengladbach activating an extension to his contract. It was suggested in Germany over last summer that Liverpool still maintained an interest but that predates Rodgers. It was also suggested that Arsenal might look to buy the player back at one time. Lyon's Samuel Umtiti has attracted the attention of both Milan clubs, Genoa, Juventus, Atalanta, Newcastle, Barcelona and Fulham with his performances this season.}


1.) He is not good enough. Don't think he will be either. I suspect Arsenal let him go for a reason.

Norwegian Red.

2.) Fairplay NR as a Norwegian know far more about the player than me - if he isn't good enough then obviously I hope we don't sign him.

Hey man as a Norwegian what do you think of Herman Stengel? You think he will be the next big player from Norway?




10 Mar 2013 11:46:33
Hi ed's, do you know of any interest from us (or any other clubs) in Lucas Fernando of Gremio? Cheers

SMc {Ed002's Note - There is plenty of interest in him from Russia.}

Tight game, this is how I saw it from our end:

Mignolet - Good for the most part. Number of good saves, claimed most crosses well and seems to have improved his dsitribution. Still makes odd decisions at times but he played well tonight.

Milner - did well, was kept busy by Mhikitariyan all night but kept on going, scored a pen and gave us some badly needed leadership. Foul on him by Rooney was nasty as well - that is wasn't even a yellow was beyond belief.

Alexander-Arnold - let's face it the kid struggled a bit tonight. He looked flustered, was making poor decisions (due to inexperience and nerves most likely) and got caught in possession too. Having said that, despite Martial getting the better of him first half he did not have much of a look-in second half, the lad improved considerably. Overall he did alrite given it was his full Premier League debut, hopefully valuable experience he can take with him in future.

Lovren - was very good. Commanding in the air (in our box and theirs) and defended very well. Got a really harsh yellow card but, apart from that, did little wrong. I'm not sure who was at fault for the goal as my stream died - if anyone can enlighten me I'd be delighted.

Klavan - wasn't great to be honest. Looked shaky, got caught out a few times and was pretty poor when in possession. He defends pretty well but has lapses and he had a few tonight (which were not punished) .

Emre Can - a mixed game: some of the usual wayward, brainless passing but definitely more thrust in terms of getting up the pitch. Was also much stronger in the tackle and provided steel in the midfield which we needed, particularly second half.

Henderson - as he does so consistently well he just makes us tick. In defence he provides good cover, good leadership and a cool head - in attack he provides slick passes and tidy possession. What he does seems innocuous but it contributes a lot to our success, it was another good game for him.

Wijinaldum - if we ignore his glaring miss in injury time (which might be difficult) then you could say that he was average at best. Give the lad credit though he pops up into some dangeroius areas - he really has an eye for a run/ positioning - but his finishing is woeful. His decision making in terms of passing was also nothing special tonight. He wasn't terrible but he can/ should do much better.

Origi - caused problems with his pjhysicality and directness but seemed to be too far away from goal to utilize is most times. Issue for me is over his decision making and finishing. He did pretty well though and made their defenders lives uncomfortable.

Firmino - his energyu levels and closing down off the ball where, as usual, great. But his attacking prowess grew as soon as Coutinho was on the pitch. He should of done much better with the chance he had if truth be told and, on more than one occasion, I was annoyed with a daft flick he tried in a far from ideal area. With Coutinho back to fitness I hope we see the best of Firmino again.

Lallana - tough night for him. The wide positions just don't suit him and he struggled to make his prescence felt. He had moments and, as always, his class on the ball is unquestionable. I'd like to see him back in that midfield 3 again though, if we face overly physical opponents (like those tonight) then Emre Can is arguably the better option.

Coutinho - Lifted us the moment he was brought on. Excellent passing, good touch and technique, just a menace for defences to try and deal with. His fitness (and hopefully maintenance of his fitness) will play a big part in the second part of the season - when Mane is back we will start looking very tasty again I fancy.

Klopp - in general he got it right. A draw was probably not unfair on the balance of play but we could have won that game on another day - and United fans would probably be able to say something similar.

Ref - only bone of contention for me. There was a couple of pretty shocking tackles from United (Rooney's on Milner a favorite; Pogba's choke on Henderson) which were just not fairly punished. Rooney's was a potential red but at least a yellow but got nothing. Pogba should have got a yellow for his handball, a yellow for whatever that was on Henderson and a couple of other incidences. I felt like United were enabled to play a rough, aggressive style by e ref who simply failed to punish their players for their rough, over zealous play. A ref who yellow carded Lovren for a perfectly good tackle that had no malice what-so-ever. Having said that the result was certainly not influenced by the ref - on balance it was fair and, given both teams form, I'd of taken a draw before the game. We move on to the next challenge.


1.) 15 Jan 2017 18:49:06
Nice Seano, but I don't agree with the Can comments.

He's a dangerous player and we need someone else there.

Still, he's got a future, but for me, at the moment, it's on the bench.

Nice point for us there, and proof that we can still match the teams at the top.

Onward again after today me thinks

2.) 15 Jan 2017 18:57:42
Was it me or the minute Coutihno stepped on the pitch you could see the return of a great bromance w/ firmino? Seriously. you see how we tick much betters with couts and Firmino center. Yes. HendoS return was equally important.

3.) 15 Jan 2017 19:04:41
Decent analysis. The team was never set up to score goals. The midfielders in between Can and Wiji has 4 goals in the league. The front three tried their best but they hardly got any support from midfield. Lallana desperately need to be dropped into the middle. He needs actions infront if him not himself. We miss Coutinho. The lad is supreme quality.
United had some good chances and on another day Micky would have scored 2 and Pogba 1.
A point is exactly what we set up for tonight.

4.) 15 Jan 2017 19:10:54
@Davey - In games that require more physicality i'd play Can over Wiji is what I meant to say, Lallana should be starting as 1 of the midfield 3 every game.

5.) 15 Jan 2017 19:53:56
2 things in that mate:

Firstly, while I don't believe the ref had any form of bias, they should have been playing over half the match with 10 men and Pogba didn't even get a yellow. That is a massive influence on the game and it was only a ridiculously good save by Mingolet that stopped it being even more of an influence, because they very nearly scored as a direct result of the headlock being punished.

Secondly, Lovren did not have a good game. He did some good stuff but he was poorly positioned several times without any good reason, and twice played poor back passes that they very nearly scored from (and once should have) . Every time Lovren had time to think today it went poorly and that isn't good enough.

6.) 15 Jan 2017 20:23:15
Don`t blame Klopp at all for setting up the midfield to be more work-man-like. Utd play a physical game in midfield and we needed all our physical players on the pitch to match them. we were missing players and in a sticky patch so you have to make sure you don`t concede first (which we did not) and then go from there.

Also, we went there first, not to conceded but hit them on the break whenever we press hem and we did press them well in critical moments hence, the chances we created. The strikers already knew they wouldn`t have a lot f chances and would be needed to work hard especially, out of possession especially on the flanks.

We needed a solid team performance to get a result and we got that even tho, a win would have been more welcome. Had we won, no one would have cared how we set up. Take the point and we move on.

7.) 15 Jan 2017 20:26:55
The ref was fine, we nullified unt but just couldn't quite hold them out, decent point and move onto Swansea. Only 7 away games to go.

8.) 15 Jan 2017 20:34:33

What is this physical football you are talking? Lallana is a foot longer than Herrera while Carrick is slower than a tortoise. If you press well you don't need to be a wrestler on the pitch. The only way United would have had any authority on the game was going direct long balls which got them the goal. Can and Wijnaldum overkills the midfield and you could bench one for a different kind of a player.
You clearly don't understand the game. We scored 30 odd goals without being PHYSICAL.

9.) 15 Jan 2017 21:01:29
If you see wiji and can in midfield together you can basically guarantee we won't create much. Wiji is physically very good and decent movement but on the ball seems to play it overly safe and as a result he passes it backwards from promising positions way too often. Can just loses the ball too often with wayward passes. Great to see Hendo back and combative as usual. Love seeing him get stuck in to Pogba.

10.) 15 Jan 2017 22:22:51
The ref was not "fine". Herrera had more than 2 yellow card offences, Ibra led with his elbows on every header, Rooney had studs up against Milner and Pogba should have gone.
If the FA don't act retrospectively it is nothing short of cheating.

11.) 15 Jan 2017 22:27:46
Wiji (If that's what we're now calling him? ) Has been much much better this season than the majority on here give him credit for.

He is simple in his play which is fine when you have four players ahead of you being creative.

His understanding with Hendo and Lallana has grown in that Can is very much the back up player to those three.

If those three play together then I'd back us to win most games

12.) 16 Jan 2017 05:16:28
That rich coming from you, Harry? Have you read your own posts? Utter nonsense. Klopp played both Wiji and Can vs City in a bid to outwork and press them in midfield n he did the same today especially with Can who stifled Pogba into having a poor game duo his ability to match up with Pogba`s size and athleticism. Mentioning Carrick and Herrera is pointless as I never referred to them in my post so learn to rea next time. In both games, we had the upper hand physically which allowed the press to be so effectively executed y Lallana ad Firmino.



12 Dec 2016 04:22:50
Karius has looked real shakey and has conceded a few soft goals in the last couple of games - talk of putting Mignolet back in the team is just insanity though. Can fans remember Mignolet? Karius might not be saving shots he should but Mignolet did that plenty of times too - he also messed up numerous crosses and couldn't pass a ball to save his life - and has had 3+ years to show his skills. For better or worse Karius needs to play so he can either rediscover his form or so we can discover whether or not he is a viable goalkepper for us moving forward. It can be infuriating but the lad needs time - let's give it him.

As for the game itself a number of poor performances meant it was the team again, rather than the individual, who was at fault. Clyne was really bad, awful distribution and non-existent defensively. Lovren was poor and hesitant - not sure why he was subbed at half-time but if it wasn't due to injury I would still not be surprised. Wijinaldum lost the ball an infuriating amount of times and look labored and lost. Lallana, despite scoring, reverted to his old ways of way too many touches resulting in drastically slowed down play. Firmino was anonymous - doesn't look anywhere near as effective on the left as he does in the centre. Origi was decent in spells but didn't really do enough over the course of the game. Nobody really shone in this game and we haven't been able to say that many times this season - hope we can fight our way out of this slump - were on a poor run against teams we should be picking up more points from, hope it improves against Middlesbrough - not confident though, they were a bogey team for us last time they were in the prem!


{Ed001's Note - my worry is Milner, he was excellent before his injury, but he has looked awful since coming back. His crossing was terrible yesterday. They were as bad as our corners.}

1.) 12 Dec 2016 06:16:54
Got that spot on the team performances Seano. We should have shown our metal against west ham and hammered them. In fact we were poor collectively. Blaming everything on Karius makes no sense to me.
No surprises on Milner Ed01. He for me is a stop gap till we bring one solid left back.

{Ed001's Note - but he was excellent before his injury, and full backs are almost entirely wingers that have dropped back these days.}

2.) 12 Dec 2016 06:25:22
MIlner is a solid defender and he tracks back faster than anyone but I don't expect much from him going forward. Disappointed with Clyne - Mane yesterday.

3.) 12 Dec 2016 06:37:44
Milner was poor yesterday as was Clyne.

4.) 12 Dec 2016 08:47:59
I thought we started fine but we lost confidence and belief the longer it went on due to the team as a whole defending badly.
West ham even had a player in the middle of our wall at Payets free kick.
Surely a man should have stood behind him to cover. That was where Payet guided the ball through to score.

We had plenty of possession and Hendos shot from 25 yards took a world class save to stop him scoring.

But just when we needed Sturridge in the last half hour ti work a bit of magic, where was he? injured again.

We have to re build confidence ans turn these draws into wins as there is still a long way to go.
Every team will gave a wibble between now and end of May.

5.) 12 Dec 2016 09:11:01
Honestly, i have staunchly defended karius and i will continue to do so, but he is not making it easy. He didn't set the wall properly and his starting position was far too much to the left considering the free kick was right in the middle of the goal. That said the second goal was a mistake by matip and clyne doing his headless chicken routine again.

Middlesbrough are a decent side and if the team does not get their act together we will be embarrassed again. Firmino clearly is not working out wide, it makes sense to get him back in the middle and play origi wide right and mane wide left. That gives us pace to pin teams back on the wings and someone with skill to hold the ball up in the middle and bring our midfield runners into the game. I would drop clyne for arnold to give him a rest and bring in lucas alongside hendo to steady the ship and allow hendo to affect the game a bit more going forward knowing there will be someone to cover his position.

6.) 12 Dec 2016 10:14:12
Agreed ed1 the Milner situation is worrying me too. I just hope it's nothing and he gets back to his best. I think he will but it's needed now more then ever.



27 Nov 2016 03:56:23
Really good win yesterday, especially so given we had a similar game only recently against Southampton in which we couldn't quite find the break through. I'd actually argue that we had the better chances in that game but that, against Sunderland, we got the rub of the green and the ball went in. Thought we were, again, deserving of victory and that our teamplayed very well, paericularly in the 2nd half.

Emre Can frustrated me in the 1st half but he improved markedly and was at the centre of much of our good play in the 2nd. Firmino was superb throughout. I thought Mane, despite getting us a goal, looked a little rusty, had a number of heavy touches. Henderson was imperious - the job he does, in the system we play, is hugely important and he did it very well yesterday, well done lad! It was also very pleasing to see Karius play well, distribute the ball well and be brave when it mattered - he's starting to settle, hope he keeps his good form up. Onwards and upwards, we keep playing well - the Coutinho injury is a negative but this is were the quality of the squad comes in - let's see how we manage in his absence.




19 Nov 2016 16:56:35
We played well and we deserved to win. Had 2 or 3 really big chances that we should of scored. Southampton were woeful - to sit deep, defend and hope for some sort of a counter at home is, for a club with european aspirations, quite pathetic. 2 points dropped but positives were a good defence and an ability to create quality chances even against a team intent on getting almost every player behind the ball. We weren't at our sparkling best but we were hardly terrible either - felt like one of those games were we'd never score. Onwards and upwards though .


1.) 19 Nov 2016 19:09:27
We need to be better at breaking teams down when sit deep. Coutinio and Lallana are both big players in those situations. Oh well. Other results were not too bad for our top 4 ambitions.

2.) 19 Nov 2016 19:12:51
Fully agree with you, Seano. At least it wasn't like the Burnley performance which was like watching paint dry.

3.) 19 Nov 2016 19:44:27
Agreed Hamilton - thought we actually played well today and created some good, clear chances. Was just a shame we didn't seem to have our shooting boots on. Any comparisons between today's game and the Burnley one are very wide of the mark.

4.) 19 Nov 2016 19:47:13
@Beddoerocks - we broke them down a number of times and had 3 to 4 chances were players were in on goal. We simply didn't finish the good chances we created - I don't see any issues with us breaking down defensive teams (at least not from this game) : it was simply a case of not finishing what we created. These games happen - we'll play worse than that and win games this season, it is simply one of those things that sometimes happens.

5.) 19 Nov 2016 22:28:51
Who cares if chelski go top tomorrow? It's mid November!



30 Oct 2016 15:44:44
Entertaining game, great result and a lot of positives (with a few negatives) to take from it.


- deadly attack
- coutinho and firmino's excellence
- strong midfield performance
- big improvements in Moreno
- Matip looking like one of the signings of the summer
- actually killing a game off!


- should/ could of scored 3 or 4 easily
- Lovren showing many of the weaknesses in his game and contributing to both their goals
- didn't bury the game before half-time
- fans absolutely savaging Karius after 5 games: embarrassing.

It's been an incredible art to the season - i'm loving watching us play. So exciting and creative, we really do look excellent this season. Title-challenge? Difficult to say, lot of teams with a lot of quality looking good (and consistent) this season. One game at a time and see were that takes us I guess.


1.) 30 Oct 2016 16:12:20
We did score 4 though?

2.) 30 Oct 2016 21:21:30
Seano, those savaging Karius should keep embarrassing themselves. Didn't hear them savaging Migs or Pepe after five games but suddenly, they think they know more than Koop wo like us saw enough of Migs to know that he's been awful. Karius is his choice and that's that. And if he doesn't come good, no prob. He will give Ward his shot because he's not going back to Migs again, IMO as Ward is already better than Migs.

3.) 31 Oct 2016 00:05:53
From my point of view we did not buy "DDG". Karius is still raw potential, he was always far from the finished article. He needs time and support to improve, he has the potential but he still has a long way to go.
Unbeaten for 11 games now yet people still have a pop at our players including Karius, Lovren and Wijnaldum? Shocking.

4.) 31 Oct 2016 10:37:53
@ Zespecialone - yes, you're right! That was a typo, meant to say we could of scored 3 or 4 MORE goals than we did.

I understand that Mbappe is one of the hottest talents in Europe with literally every big team taking an interest - so it makes sense that we could not compete - but financially how much (ballpark figure) do you think we would have to spend over the summer (exclusing sales)? Or is this too difficult to quantify in any meaningful way?

He is ridiculously massive. Just curious, and this is a querstion for ed's, posters, etc etc when somebody is so far ahead physically (compared to other 15 year olds) do they have to train with full-grown men in order to keep improving? Or is it still possible to develop the required skills playing within their own age group?

This is an old rumour but it is probably worth noting that Kondogbia is far from easy to deal and seems to cause disruption with regularity - one I hope we steer clear of.

As a Sharkopod listener, and a listener to other teams not just our own, I'll say that Fonte (given what was said in the United Sharkopod) is more or less nailed on to join them. That is where he wants to go, that is where the strongest interest lies and also where the largest transfer fee for Southampton lies - he won't be going to us.

Oh, and to add to this, Ed002 in particular has made the situation about Sakho very clear: he wants to go to a top tier club - that rules out Southmapton. Our financial demands are also quite high which would also rule out Southampton. I'd ignore everything in the papers - they don't write the truth, they write stories to try and facilitate sales - take it (both sports news and general news) with a massive pinch of salt!

The jury is still out on him and his ability to perform at the required level to get into our first XI - it would be highly surprising if Juventus were keen unless they see him as a back-up option only? To be honest I could see him doing OK in Italy - would get more time on the ball, have a chance to get his head up and pick passes quicker - always seems too rushed when he plays for us and, consequently, gives away a significant amount of possession. Hopefully the lad improves for us though and becomes a mainstay - i'd much prefer him to do well at our club.

agree with you MK Arsenal gave up on the lad too quickly, he has looked good. Having said that it is only just over half a season in his first seazson of top level football - i wouldn't sign him just yet.

We should never buy squad players only ones that improve the first team: creates depth and competition and gets the best out of everyone. I never really understood buying players for the 'squad' - what that means is your buying players not quite good enough for the first XI - what's the point of doing that?

It isn't that we are a one man team per se, not how it used to be with Gerrard single-handedly dragging us to wins, but what Mane offers is something unique that we simply don't have when he doesn't play: pace. This pace changes how teams defend against us and how they approach us - essentially if they don't get really tight on Mane he can breeze past players an create chances and goals; if they get tight it free's up space for other players to exploit. When he wasn't in the team there was a distinct lack of movement up top and it made our attacks predictable and easy to defend - when Mane plays it gives us another angle of attack and unsettles back lines which, in turn, leads to more goals. His work rate off the ball, in putting defenders under pressure, stops defenders getting comfortable and leads to mistakes - evidenced by the Spurs game. We are not a one-man-team but we are a different proposition with him in the side.

As for Coutinho? Coming off the back of a 3-month layoff I think he is just getting up to speed - it's not a fitness issue so much as a match fitness/ sharpness - often takes weeks to get back up to previous levels, I think he'll be fine.
