Confirmed Allan back to Fluminense all the best to the fella, shame it’s not worked out so far!

The Southern Red

1.) 17 Feb 2019 09:39:19
Another victim of our recruitment policy.

2.) 17 Feb 2019 12:27:51
Too right Ron. Plucking a yoyng man from him comfortable home with no plan on how to benefit us, multiple randon loans all over the place givning him no chance to settle and kick on. Really infuriating that we do this, Anyowini (sp? ) and this Anderson Arroyo next.

3.) 17 Feb 2019 14:19:14
It was a work permit issue, I get what you are saying, but you cannot blame it strictly on the recruitment policy.

4.) 17 Feb 2019 15:43:02
They should be well aware of the work permit rules. How about this, if they need a special exemption for a work permit, target someone else? If they are not a player who is going to add something to the first team, why bother spending hundreds of thousands of pounds on them.

5.) 17 Feb 2019 22:02:03
And another one of BR's "mindless splurges" bites the dust.

6.) 21 Feb 2019 10:38:23
Hey at least he got to win some silverware, he's a champion of Finland! Still only 21 and has already lived in six countries, I wish i was as well traveled at his age.



13 Feb 2019 11:29:15
Rumour has it that allan has moved back to brazil on loan.

The Southern Red

1.) 13 Feb 2019 12:55:26
"Rumour has it" - Lemar back on the cards?

{Ed025's Note - "if theres any justice in the world" he will be zed.. :)

2.) 13 Feb 2019 13:24:51
I heard right about now it's fifty fifty.

3.) 13 Feb 2019 21:33:46
Ed025. Surely if we did buy Lemar we’d have to give him time to grow?

{Ed025's Note - nice one DPG..

4.) 14 Feb 2019 14:01:14
I remember when he made his debut on The Word,
He was up his own backside in those days with his 59s throwback hairstyle 🙄.

5.) 14 Feb 2019 14:59:57
You got the right guy there Ron?

6.) 14 Feb 2019 08:12:56
I've heard he's pretty 'dedicated' Ed. ;) Should sign him up.

{Ed025's Note - good stuff KK..



19 Jan 2019 10:55:03
do you think we will see an increase in loan deals nearer the end of the window for some of our U23's?

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

1.) 19 Jan 2019 19:38:14
Any teams looking at Woodburn?

{Ed0333's Note - it’s amazing how far his star has fallen. From knocking on the first team door to being shunned by Sheffield Wednesday. I wonder what will become of the boy.?

2.) 19 Jan 2019 21:07:00
I'd love Woodburn to go to Leeds. Sure, he won't be first choice, but he'll get minutes and in a system that will suit him.

3.) 19 Jan 2019 22:05:33
Yeah what has gone wrong with this kid?

4.) 20 Jan 2019 00:16:50
Tbf Harry Wilson went to Crewe at a similar age and barely made a dent. He has time on his side.

5.) 19 Jan 2019 23:56:53
I have never seen him have a good game for us. Just not up to standard. I think he should be moved on personally. Shame but will likely ply his trade in lower divisions.

6.) 20 Jan 2019 14:44:29
Just not improved and maybe there's issues behind the scenes with his attitude.

{Ed001's Note - he is just a kid who is still growing, far too soon to write him off, no matter how his spell with Sheff Utd is going.}

7.) 20 Jan 2019 23:33:46
Lfcbadboy the lad is just 6 months or so older than say Rashford was when he played his 1st game for Utd, and if I remember rightly that was only because of an injury crisis at Old Trafford. Not saying he's going to be as good as Rashford but some perspective is needed. He was 18 and went on a loan that didn't work out and 6 months has been largely wasted but like a poster said earlier Wilson had a similarly disappointing loan at that age. if he gets a decent loan at a championship team and plays between now and the end of the season i'd imagine he would still be one of the youngest players in what is a very competitive league.

8.) 21 Jan 2019 18:54:47
Is Gerrard not interested?



14 Jan 2019 11:50:10
Do we know if there is anything happening with chirivella this window?

The Southern Red

1.) 14 Jan 2019 18:11:02
Is he still with us? Wasn't he loaned to romania or something?

2.) 14 Jan 2019 19:06:04
He's been playing most of the under 23 matches.

3.) 14 Jan 2019 19:21:57
He is too good for the u23 - great passer, good game management. He looks frustrated but Im not convinced he has a future with us. Ed001 might know better.

{Ed001's Note - he did look like he might have a chance but Fabinho has taken his place I think.}

4.) 14 Jan 2019 21:49:05
a shame i did genuinely think he had a good chance with us to atleast push for a squad player.

5.) 15 Jan 2019 02:38:11
Ed01, that must be the ever-question for academy vs buying aye? I feel as tho a youth has to be over the top good, or at least assessed that way, in order to get a shot.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate and this is why I would like to see something done to force teams to look to their academies.}



09 Jan 2019 17:53:57
So with all these questions being banded around regarding transfers thought i'd try and put together the VERY small summary of what is probably going to happen in Jan.

Please add any input if you want.

Ins: Non (unless we see a major injury to someone important or see more outs than i believe) .
Recalled loans: Awoniyi, Woodburn.

Outs: Non possible loans of youth.

Camacho - Sporting Lisbon (be suprised if he goes without signing a new deal) .
Awoniyi - another loan out as he doesn't have a permit to play for liverpool.
Wooburn - maybe he will stay as part of the squad. Lots of interest from the Championship.

We won't see Lallana or Origi leave this month as it leaves us light up top.

The Southern Red

1.) 10 Jan 2019 08:12:17
From BBC App

Liverpool are set to end Wales winger Ben Woodburn's loan spell at Sheffield United and will consider enquiries from Blackburn Rovers, Brentford and Hull City for the 19-year-old.

2.) 10 Jan 2019 10:14:15
Muscron GM looking to resign Awoniyi after his loan spell has been cut short.

How long till the quarter final? I am assuming Gomez will be back fit by then. Surely he must be in contention to play LB?

I know people say Lovren is awful but playing alongside vvd he has looked much more assured and sticking to the basics!

Please Ajax.

The Southern Red

1.) 14 Mar 2019 09:13:34
Why lb? And it has to be manutd for me.

2.) 14 Mar 2019 09:13:40
Would much rather than Porto than Ajax

And also better to have Milner at LB.

3.) 14 Mar 2019 09:36:30
I'd rather have Porto, Ajax or Man Utd.
But preference is Porto.

4.) 14 Mar 2019 09:47:16
Gomez for left back that’s madness he's strongest position is cb. Milner or Moreno will fill LB.

5.) 14 Mar 2019 10:43:36
Does anybody know when the draw is please?

6.) 14 Mar 2019 11:29:42
Tomorrow half 10 salah.

7.) 14 Mar 2019 11:55:36
Google search engine is often quite effective, Salah.

8.) 14 Mar 2019 15:48:30
My only reasoning is that Moreno is a headless chickevand a fast winger can just breeze past milner.

9.) 14 Mar 2019 19:04:47
Longthing76, I am with Southern Red on this. Gomez made his debut for Liverpool at LB and gave a number of impressive performances in that position. Much as I like Moreno for his total commitment and effort, I would much rather have Gomez (if fit) at LB in the QF first leg. And Millie is a vitiate cog in the midfield machine for these CL games. Just an opinion.



11 Mar 2019 21:45:12
Congratulations to Liam Millar for coming off the bench scoring his first and the winning goal for Kilmarnock!

hope they give him his first start soon, well in lad!

The Southern Red

1.) 11 Mar 2019 23:31:41
Watched stoke of the game, but missed the end. Killie haven't been in great form, so hopefully his goalscoring cameo will earn him a start or 2 in what will be an important run-in that could clinch a euro place for the first time since 1998! I once saw djorkaeff (i can't spell) play at rugby park, good times!



06 Mar 2019 19:15:21
I just want to say in all this doom and gloom how happy i am to see such levels of support for U23's and U18's

about 3000 went to the everton U23 derby

and looks pretty busy for U18's vs Bury!

lets become the happy and united fans we were and show the world that we are one!

25 Feb 2019 10:09:49
I know there is a bit of doom and gloom on here but I think we need to remember that whilst we probably should of pushed for the win.

If by some chance, it hasn’t been called offside or Smalling had thrown himself at that ball and we had lost 1-0 that would of been a disaster.

We need to remember that being so far behind on goal difference is a big issue and gaining a point is much better than people are suggesting!

It’s happened we move forward onwards to Anfield!

The Southern Red

1.) 25 Feb 2019 10:33:32
Hmm I think getting a draw isn’t bad. We have a better run of fixture and we have chelsea and tottenham at home while city has tottenham at home and united away were they can lose or draw.

2.) 25 Feb 2019 11:27:17
On current form I thought that we would get beat yesterday so a point was a good result.

Just on watching the game United where there for the taking.

We lost our groove at the start of the year and need to find it again, just this is the trouble with the squad that we don't have good enough players to bring in for under performing players.

3.) 25 Feb 2019 13:52:53
I think the glass half full fans will say its 1 point gained yesterday and the glass half empty fans 2 points dropped. Over the last 4 games i wonder if the half full will say its 3 points gained rather than 6 points dropped though as we have drawn 3 out of the 4. Pressure at the top. Key word being Top, as that's where we still are currently.

4.) 25 Feb 2019 14:50:10
Definitely two points dropped in my eyes. I can understand the first half being strange due to the Saving Private Ryan scene but there's no excuse for being even worse in the second half after a team talk. The passing and general cohesion of the XI was atrocious. We've had a few opportunities to take the gifts offered to us now - City, Leicester, West Ham and now United and we've not taken it. We need to be more ruthless as these opportunities will eventually dry up.

Whilst Klopp has adapted a lot this season and should be given credit for being more versatile he's dropped the ball on a few selections or subs recently eg the conservative midfield against City, Lallana on for Keita against Leicester, Lallana starting against West Ham and the subs against United were very poor.

If Bobby is out then we need to get creative. Studge and Origi just cannot produce the intensity or smarts for a Klopp forward line. Perhaps Salah up top with Mane and Shaq supporting - though I am not sure that would hang together well. Or, perhaps we could play Gini in the false 9? He presses well, has a good set of lungs, is great with his back to goal and is physically strong. I'd feel more confident about Gini there than any of our backup forwards if I am honest. How damning is that?

5.) 25 Feb 2019 16:19:11
Spot on OP and JK23. To me, people always want to make rushed statements to say "It is two points dropped" w/ o actually looking at the perf. itself. The way we played, there is NO WAY we would have won that game, end of story. We were NOT at it and a couple of players were just awful esp. Studge who made us play with 10 men essentially. In a game like this, passengers NEED NOT apply. The subs could have been better as well BUT that is easier to say, after the fact. Judging by that and the fact that Utd could have won had that goal been given (offside notwithstanding), things would have REALLY hit the fan.

Hence if the perf. did not merit 3 points on the day, what is THE next best thing? You take the point which like it or not, gets you standing a lone at the top. This is not a glass half-full or half-empty. This is a fact. If you can't win the game, you DAMN well should NOT lose it. Mou has won titles doing that for years so for me, that is the biggest positive while we iron out our issues cos they are there for all to see esp. in the final third. Just my opinion.



20 Feb 2019 12:38:39
I think last night compounded the point of wh are we soooo terrible at corners!

I hope Klopp will make everyone who takes them practice 30 mins every day.

The Southern Red

1.) 20 Feb 2019 12:46:30
We have more goals from corners than anyone else in the league I think.

2.) 20 Feb 2019 13:02:37
I think it's set plays but you're right.
We are not rubbish at corners.

3.) 20 Feb 2019 13:15:50
Got to say that James' corners were spot on yesterday. If only we could do the same more consistently.

4.) 20 Feb 2019 13:40:28
Our corners are rubbish. As has been pointed out many times, stats are useless. Just because we have the most goals from "set pieces" doesn't mean that we are actually good at taking corners.

Maybe we've had more corners than the vast majority of teams? Maybe that includes penalties? Maybe we're good at free kicks?

I would estimate that half of our corners hit the first man, and if they don't then the people in the box are stationary and not attacking the ball so very unlikely to actually score a headed goal.

We desperately need some work on corners. With the players we have they should be a real threat for us and they just aren't. When we get a corner I never have any expectation that something will happen.

5.) 20 Feb 2019 13:44:01
Stats are by and large useless, but you can’t say we are rubbish at a set peice when we’ve scored more goals than anyone in the league from set peices. That’s not a rubbish stat it’s a fact.

Maybe we could be even better, but we are far from rubbish.

6.) 20 Feb 2019 14:02:16
How were James' corners "Spot On"

They took 6 corners (1 more than us btw) and did not manage a shot on target. At no point did we really struggle to deal with a corner.

7.) 20 Feb 2019 14:19:31
If we had 1000 corners and scored 10. But another team had 10 corners and scored 9, does that still mean we are good at corners?
Stats are used to be bent and mean absolutely nothing.

8.) 20 Feb 2019 14:55:45
Are corners have been terrible for as long as I can remember! Wasn't there an old joke about LFC and corners?

9.) 20 Feb 2019 16:11:30
Lamborini - James' corners missed the first man and were put in a place out of reach of Allison open to be attacked. We defended them well. Our corners reach the front post defender too often and offer no opportunity.

10.) 20 Feb 2019 18:32:16
I think we play the corners to the front post by design cos we have seen Mane attack them at the front post. This is why it is difficult to judge corners cos we don't know what corner routines are being worked on. Having said that, if the designed method is not working then the players should be smart enuff to switch it up. Whether they are allowed to do it, is another story.

11.) 20 Feb 2019 20:48:03
RedWolf is correct and by far the most effective corner is the one which JUST beats the defender at the near post.
It requires and incredible amount of accuracy which is very hard to achieve.
We’re guilty of trying to be too perfect, but that is the most effective corner when executed perfectly.
When you don’t beat the first man it looks AWFUL but in actual fact it’s not far off being the perfect corner delivery.

{Ed025's Note - but ron thats like saying a penalty that hits the post and bounces out is the perfect penalty mate, its not the perfect one is the pen that hits the back of the net, same with corners unless it finds a forward its no good, salah should not take any more corners until he learns how to beat the first many times do you have to get punched in the face before you learn to duck mate?..

12.) 20 Feb 2019 22:18:30
It’s not the same as a penalty which it’s the post, I’m not having that analogy.

A corner is a fairly low percentage scoring opportunity whereas a penalty isn’t.
A penalty requires you to beat the keeper only. A corner requires the ball to beat the defenders and keeper and to connect with an attacker and be on target.
The best way to cause the most risk in the penalty area from a corner is to just beat the near post defender.
That’s a fact, that’s why all the top teams have that as the default corner plan. It’s just difficult to execute.

{Ed025's Note - its not hard to execute ron, hit the ball a bit harder..or a bit higher, these are top professional footballers mate making schoolboy errors..

13.) 20 Feb 2019 23:58:41
Bayern's corners were excellent. Right on the penalty spot every time, they just needed someone to attack it.

I think it all depends on whether he truly believes that Klopp still has him in his plans, although we all know how many times he has said things and not followed through.

He is probaby ready for the step up I just think it is too. If a jump at the moment to to us, BUT pre season is a chance to change that view!

whilst he is a model professional, i think the big decider will be if Leeds get promoted to the premiership, if they do then i would be very surprised if he didn't move back to them!

we also need to factor that he is slowly moving down the pecking order and on the wages that he is on and the age he is we can reinvest that elsewhere.

I don't think people realise the impact of our youth playing in the same facilities as the 1st team! to see them play everyday next to them will give them the motivation and belief.

given Ajax's recent exposure to the media, people only need to read about the way their youth setup is, how all the pitches play alongside each other.

you want a frictionless difference between U5's to first team.

they have only done well by spending far more than they can afford in the hope that they should be.

i heard they were losing a lot of money last year on the assumption that they would get promoted.
