Evening all, I doubt Joe Gomez will play again this season ( he'll probably start against palace now and make me look stupid) apart from maybe a cameo now and then, Klopp wants him to have a proper pre season, he's a big part of the plans going forward he'll be pushing lovren and be ahead of Klavan from what I can gather, sturridge looking likely to leave which seems to be common knowledge right now not that he particularly wants too, also Klopp really wants TAA to be a regular 1st team player next season not sure what that means for Clyne but I just know Klopp wants Trent in the team, it could mean nothing as we know he's very versatile.

Always good to hear your in ST.

2.) 20 Apr 2017 22:17:35
Thanks for the info.

3.) 20 Apr 2017 23:35:51
Boss thanks la.

4.) 21 Apr 2017 02:37:17
I think TAA would make a good RM/ RW. best crosser of the ball I've seen in a Liverpool shirt for a long time. Once players like origi get used to where he is going to put the ball it could be a deadly move. Or maybe klopp is thinking 532 which in my opinion would suit TAA more than clyne.

5.) 21 Apr 2017 04:33:44
TAA is so important to the future of the club but also the future of Klopp. By bringing players like TAA through the ranks it allows Klopp to really build HIS team in his mould and allow him also to say "look at the players I've brought through". There is big focus on this at all clubs but when top clubs can do it, its huge.

6.) 21 Apr 2017 08:26:47
Cheers for the info squareT send Joe our best as always and again thank you for the info much appreciated and great to hear about Joe and Trent.

7.) 21 Apr 2017 11:26:34
Does anyone else see us playing 3 at the back next season

Matip lovren Gomez or hopefully VVD that would be a dre

TAA would be perfect for the Rwb position- Klopp ready said he needs to work on the defending side so playing 3 at the back would allow him to push forward.

Milner and hopefully the Fulham kid also are better attacking.

Hendo Gini can can fight it out for the cm postion

Coutinho postion would not change because he likes to play inside.

Mane can play the other side

Lallana can play any of them 2 postion

Firmino and Origi can also fight it out.

8.) 21 Apr 2017 11:57:32
I think Klopp will continue to play the 4-3-3 but I've noticed that against sides that set a low block and aim to hit on the break, our deep midfielder is increasingly sitting almost between the CBs to create a defacto 3-4-3 and provide a bit more protection against the counterattack.

In more balanced games where possession is 50/ 50 and play frequently switches between attack and defense, he seems to use the high press more and keeps the 4-3-3 or 4-1-4-1 shape to cut down the space.

9.) 21 Apr 2017 15:02:59
Cheers Square Tomato, Surely Gomez will play against Palace seens as all other defenders are injured mate?

10.) 21 Apr 2017 15:20:07
Big game for the lad.
Klopp has said he's been the complete package in training for the last few weeks.
He may know some of Benteke's tricks from earlier training sessions.

I hope Migs and Lovren help and not hinder the lad.

11.) 21 Apr 2017 15:21:34
i would think sturridge wants to play, and he has every right to leave to seek for first team opportunities if he's not getting it here.

ive seen players come ago, and i feel like he genuinely loves the club.

12.) 23 Apr 2017 12:52:10
The thing is that the lad is never fit for long enough to warrant first team opportunities
It must be hard for any manager to plan a team around Sturridge.
The lad has ability by the bucket load but needs a less intense league.



01 Apr 2017 09:24:34
speaking to Joe Gomez last night and he said Milner has been training as a CB for next season as he sees it as the only way to get TAA in the team without dropping Clyne and Milner, seems odd to me though.

Square tomato

1.) 01 Apr 2017 09:49:11
That is really really odd. The idea is to put TAA as a leftback? Or Clyne is? But Milner as a centreback? If he can pulls it off, he will be one hell of a player, playing in almost every positions there is. But I personally prefers a tall centre back.

2.) 01 Apr 2017 09:53:14
Milner a CB? If we are planning on shipping more goals then let it be. That would be the most mind boggling situation ever.

3.) 01 Apr 2017 09:59:31
Aprils fools :D.

4.) 01 Apr 2017 10:06:23
Haha I forgot it's the 1st of April.

5.) 01 Apr 2017 10:18:47
Ha ha. Clearly caught me.

6.) 01 Apr 2017 12:49:09
ST you are one of the few posters on here genuinely in the know. Just remember mate, with great power, comes great responsibility.

7.) 01 Apr 2017 13:15:20
Well played ST.

8.) 01 Apr 2017 13:20:25
This is a real possible scenario. We aren't buying any new CB while the club has not shown any intention to offload Clyne as far now. So where would TAA play?

9.) 01 Apr 2017 20:10:25
Put him in the nets 🤠.

10.) 03 Apr 2017 15:42:20
That's a joke, right SQ?



06 Jun 2016 11:28:03
All I know is Klopp wants to keep Joe and have 4 CBs in Lovren matip sakho and Gomez skrtel and toure are expected to leave I keep seeing him being mentioned as a fullback and although he can play there he's seen as a central defender, he's not interested in any loan and wants to stay at Liverpool, the plan is for him to play against Barcelona, that could change.

Square tomato

1.) 06 Jun 2016 12:02:56
Cheers bud.

2.) 06 Jun 2016 12:08:56
Appreciate the info ST, cheers.

3.) 06 Jun 2016 11:40:51
Good news, Square! I also think he should be given a chance as a 4th CB, esp since he has the versatility to cover the flanks. How is his recovery progressing?

4.) 06 Jun 2016 11:54:33
Cheers Mr. T

Keep us updated :)

5.) 06 Jun 2016 12:28:45
Thanks a million ST. What is Joe's preferred position mate?

6.) 06 Jun 2016 14:36:50
As always Square. Appreciate the update.

7.) 06 Jun 2016 14:40:53
Thank you sir for the update on young Joe.

8.) 06 Jun 2016 14:51:26
Cheers Mr tomato greatly appreciated as always, it might be in you name but I would say you are certainly no square slugger.

9.) 06 Jun 2016 12:10:54
I thought Toure had been offered a 1 year extension? Is he now leaving?

10.) 06 Jun 2016 12:17:27
Finally we can put an end to the nonsense that he will struggle under klopp etc.

11.) 06 Jun 2016 23:07:23
Great stuff. I wanted the lad to get a chance.

12.) 07 Jun 2016 11:40:12
Best post on here for a while :) also would suggest something unexpected with the sakho verdict we won't be signing another cb think that could be a good thing and reevaluate then in January :) cheers ST!

13.) 08 Jun 2016 08:26:22
Excellent news, the way he coped with being out of position at such a young age at a tough time showed he has the mental strength and team ethic. He is a good CB so hopefully he can develop over next 2-3 years into the main one.



23 Mar 2016 17:13:57
Ed002 seems you was correct about us perhaps watching bellarabi, reports in Italy saying inter and others have stepped back due to "formidable" competition from Liverpool.

Square tomato

1.) 23 Mar 2016 18:01:33
Ive read he has a low release clause, but that won't make a difference as we paid double firminos release clause.

2.) 23 Mar 2016 19:42:11
Wasn't Firminos release clause only applicable to other German clubs?

3.) 23 Mar 2016 20:02:17
That's correct DecG.

4.) 24 Mar 2016 04:30:21
I'm sure ed002 said that Firmino had a *buyout* clause, not a release clause.

5.) 24 Mar 2016 14:24:53
Why all the disagree clicks? Go and search for yourselves.

6.) 24 Mar 2016 15:51:11
Never comment on people pressing the dislike button, it just makes them angry when they realise they are usless **** tards and they will click it again.

7.) 25 Mar 2016 00:05:59
mate, these people are the equivalent of computer viruses.

8.) 26 Mar 2016 00:01:28
Whatever Firmino's clause, he was a steal!


(see? you need to know how to beat the system)



10 Jan 2016 21:20:46
Danny Ward recalled? Happy with that he's been a big part in Aberdeen doing so well this season conceded only the second fewest behind Celtic.

Square tomato

1.) 10 Jan 2016 21:51:30
I'm not sure how to feel about this. I really hope he's coming back to be given a chance at the first team as I would hate for him to be sitting in the reserves instead of being No 1 for an SPL side. Excited to see how good a job he could do for us as he's certainly an upgrade on Bogdan and probably on Migs, given a run in the side.

2.) 10 Jan 2016 22:17:54
I'm happy with this. Hope he gets a start in the replay I does enough to keep the shirt.

3.) 10 Jan 2016 22:39:07
You've got to feel if he's been recalled its for the number 1 jersey surely, maybe it's a hint of things to come ie the Sturridge rumour, yep we all no Sturridge is class but like me old boss said to me about one of my workmates who taught me the job and new it inside out who used to knock Monday's regular if he ain't at work what use is he.

4.) 10 Jan 2016 22:44:02
He's spent 2 days with Klopp during the international break I'm sure he'll be putting major presure on migs and hopefully become number 1 I'd expect him to play against Exeter.

5.) 10 Jan 2016 23:13:10
Surely can't be coming back to be the number 2, has to be given a chance.

6.) 10 Jan 2016 22:04:24
If he's being recalled to effectively replace Bogdan in the squad I won't be overly pleased because as you say he's been a key player for Aberdeen this season. Having said that if he's back to replace or at the very least challenge Mignolet then I have no complaints.

Ed001 do you know how accurate this rumour is? Also I'd assume you're pleased if true?

{Ed001's Note - we are certainly keen to end his loan move, not sure if there is a recall clause though, so it might be a bit of negotiating required as they won't want to lose him.}

7.) 11 Jan 2016 01:26:48
I suspect to come in as no.2 and be given a shot to prove himself as potential no.1.

8.) 11 Jan 2016 01:46:52
There has got to be a serious shake up going on behind the scenes given the amount of loan recalls taking place surely? Ed1? I'd love to see Ward given a chance, but given the fact he's a guaranteed starter for Aberdeen even benching him instead of Bogdan could hamper some really valuable experience.

{Ed001's Note - he is being brought back to get a chance.}

9.) 11 Jan 2016 03:35:59
Big aberdeen liverpool fan. Am gutted he has left aberdeen as he been our star player saved us loads off times this year been a fab player to get from a top class team like liverpool. I just hope liverpool give him a chance as he played week in week out with aberdeen and got so much better. Glad u put 5 years to his name as i can see him being number 1 for liverpool. Top GK and just going to get better.

10.) 11 Jan 2016 08:44:39
Aberdeen fans are gutted saying he's the best in the league and the floodgates will open now.

11.) 11 Jan 2016 10:58:35
Hi square tomatoe being from aberdeen and being a supporter of aberdeen i can back this up mate we in the north east are gutted if he leaves he's been brilliant to watch live for the dandy dona and he will be sorely missed he can do everything and has helped us keep 2nd place for sure but least i get to see him play for the mighty liverpool ao its win win!

12.) 11 Jan 2016 11:48:29
I'm from Banchory just next to Aberdeen, everyone I've spoken seems absolutely gutted he has been re-called, I just hope he is going to be given a run to prove himself. I've been following his games and has been aberdee a stand out player by far.

I love when we're the first game on the weekend it's you can just relax and pass the pressure on to other teams, nothing like a Derby win! Really hope Mane is ok!

Liverpool mean business mate. The pressure on UTD has increased 10 fold now, especially with all their injuries and suspension of Zlatan.

Music to a Liverpool fans ears.



25 Mar 2017 07:45:50
Really feels great knowing we have TAA for many many years at right back, matter of when not if now before he takes over from Clyne, great pace great delivery, reading of the game is brilliant too, Klopp must love him. On a side note hope Seamus Coleman makes a speedy recovery from that horrific injury.

Morning all, hope all is well I've wanted to post so often but have been really busy moving house and I've been away, finally all settled feel like I've missed loads of info 😭 I need to catch up, anyway Chamberlain anyone?

Square tomato

{Ed001's Note - welcome back and please no! We have enough players with a poor attitude already at the club. We need some players with real desire and drive, the Ox has none.}

1.) 09 Mar 2017 08:33:15
Over 120 games for Arsenal and only 9 goals, No thanks.

2.) 09 Mar 2017 09:22:44
Good squad player but wouldn't be cheap. We need players which can improve the first team and I don't think he quite does that.

3.) 09 Mar 2017 11:15:05
Hey ed01, which players would you list as having poor attitude? I am not very observant, so I actually hold a high opinion for most members of the squad in regards of appliaction, though Emre has been irritating in a lot of matches by not doing his defensive tasks with enough vigour (last game excluded) .

{Ed001's Note - most of the squad have problems in that they get their heads up their arse thinking they have done all they need to after a couple of good results. That is why Henderson stands out, as he is one of the few that doesn't do that. In fact it is probably quicker to list those with a good attitude - Hendo, Firmino, Lucas and Couts. I am not including the kids in this, as they are still learning and their attitude will change over time if coached right and they mingle with the right type of players. Get the right influences around them etc and they can learn to not take anything for granted. We have far too many players shouting their mouths off on social media, in the papers etc but not backing up their gobs when it matters.}

4.) 09 Mar 2017 12:56:32
who needs action when you've got words eh ed001? lallana and mignolet are 2 of the worst in terms of mouthing off, all the talking should be done on the pitch.

{Ed001's Note - exactly. Arsenal are terrible for doing their talking off the pitch, then going into hiding on it.}

5.) 09 Mar 2017 13:50:19
Agree, personally never thought chamberlain should have joined Arsenal at the time but I do like him as a player I must admit, i can see a lot of movement for us this summer.

6.) 09 Mar 2017 12:58:45
And how many has Henderson scored for Liverpool? The fact OX has been a hit and miss and primarily used as a sub. He ran the show last night against Bayern. He is physically built and has pace. Better than Can but he is no specialist hence he is always used as a cover. Arsenal will demand big money and I am not interested to buy another "Jack of all trades" player.

We need one specialist CM, Either good in tackling / defensive aspect of the game or has a superior range of passing and knack of unlocking or splitting defense form that deep position.

If you want to spend, spend someone who would bench Henderson or Wijnaldum from first team.

I repeat a specialist.

7.) 09 Mar 2017 15:00:29
I wouldn't buy the Ox. We have so many youngsters coming through. I think we need a defensive midfielder in the mould of Leandro Paredes. Then we need to sign Jack Butland.

8.) 09 Mar 2017 15:36:17
Why would he cost a lot isn't he into the last year of his contract next season if he doesn't re-sign arsenal will look to recoup what they can £15m maybe.

9.) 09 Mar 2017 23:41:53
Parades and Butland would be good shouts Ron.

10.) 09 Mar 2017 23:45:36
We need players who will improve us and anyone thinking that Ox will do that, is deluding himself. He like Walcott, Gibbs and Ramsey, have stagnated at Arsenal and will only serve as as nothing but an expensive squad-filler so NOPE on him. By the way, if you are rating the Ox in a game where Bayern pretty much where playing without getting out of second gear then, I'm sorry but that makes no sense. Also, Ox is not better than Can even tho, Can has been here 3 seasons, still developing while Ox has been in the PL since for 6 seasons and won't get any better, IMO. I think both went toe to toe at Anfield and sorry but Can got the better of him and everyone in Arsenal's midfield.



08 Jan 2017 08:41:20
Just wanted to say something small about sturridge, I said a few months back he said really doesn't want to leave Liverpool and just wanted to add how important he is off the pitch he keeps everyone glued together everyone smiling he was so important to Gomez with his recovery he's now helping Ben and TAA a lot to feel a part of the first team (another young player should be joining the first team soon but won't mention who because ed001 said about pressure on the kid earlier) seen it mentioned people would be happy to sell him not so much on here just in general but he is absolutely key to this team on and off the pitch.

Square tomato

{Ed001's Note - well said ST.}

2.) 08 Jan 2017 09:39:11

So glad to hear Danny is helping the youngsters though

3.) 08 Jan 2017 10:12:47
Agreed ST, i hope he stays and helps us pop our premier league cherry.

4.) 08 Jan 2017 10:37:23
I wouldn't be happy to sell him far from it and now you've said he's helping the young ones good on him that does go along way but it seems like every season it's giving him more and more time with his injuries there's only so much you can do.

5.) 08 Jan 2017 11:07:18
Yeah but Jordan Rhodes is good with young players too 😛
Cheers ST, good to hear 😎

6.) 08 Jan 2017 11:26:26
Cheers ST, that's really reassuring.

7.) 08 Jan 2017 11:31:30
Cheers ST that's nice to hear, nice to see a player of his quality taking time out to make the kids feel welcome. That's quite humbling! I've got to admit though I was one of the people saying we should cash in now but my mind has been changed. He knows he could play regular in another team if fit but doesn't with us, yet he never seems to moan, whenever he comes off the bench he's hungry to help the team and lately he's shown glimpses of his former self. Although he's not the most important player for us anymore he's still a very important player (off the pitch too by the sound of things) and I think klopp realises that he could do with a player off his quality and predatory instincts, wether it's in the starting 11 or off the bench.

8.) 08 Jan 2017 13:15:09
Thanks guys good to see most are on a similar mindset! I love LFC.

9.) 09 Jan 2017 00:31:47
He can definitely advise them on injuries and rehabilitation.

10.) 09 Jan 2017 03:40:53
Thanks for the info, ST. Klopp knows his quality and has never suggested that he didn`t want him. It`s just media and fans trying to put 2 n 2 together and seem to always get 5. I`ve always said that Studge is the best goalscorer in England and if he accepts that he won`t start all the games, he is more than welcome to stay as Klopp knows he will need him a lot as no team in the PL has a talent like him coming of the bench or starting games. N BTW Ron, your Jordan Rhodes comment was hilarious.



02 Jan 2017 09:49:06
Happy new year everyone! I would like to hear opinions on Matip and Coutinho, when fit do they walk straight back into the team?

Square tomato

1.) 02 Jan 2017 10:01:46
I think coutinho probably starts on the bench in his first game back. It's a bit different for a CB you don't want to mess with a pairing during a game, for me he will come straight into the 11 but klavan has played well to be fair to him.

2.) 02 Jan 2017 10:17:34
Tough one, depends on opponents.
If Matip is fit for ManUtd, I'd prefer him to be facing Zlatan and Martial than most others.
I'd start Coutinho straight away, then take him off when we're 3 up or after an hour.

3.) 02 Jan 2017 10:22:00
For me Coutinho should be eased back to full fitness from the bench but has to start once match fit. Matip should be made to wait for his chance. an injury or loss of form as lovren and klavan have been excellent.

4.) 02 Jan 2017 10:40:47
I agree with ron. Coutinho on, save matip.

5.) 02 Jan 2017 10:53:35
It'll be a lot easier for coutinho I suppose because he'll take mane's place when he's gone, klavan has done really well since coming in so it's a tough one, lol 3.0 up Ron I like it haha.

6.) 02 Jan 2017 12:20:13
Klavan Matip anyone, don't know their preferred sides, but think Klavan has done really well, calm and confident.

7.) 02 Jan 2017 12:53:04
Lovren is still not good enough. If it could work, I;d prefer Klavan and Matip at the moment. Lovren does not fill me with confidence.

To Irishkopite i wish I could describe to you how wonderful a person Sturridge is, calling him a "prick" or "weak little princess" is so wide of the mark, he's constantly trashed by fans yet does all he can for Liverpool and the young players (a lot more than he needs to actually) at the club he's had injury problems but that's hardly his fault, he'll always have my full respect.
