IMO we have been nothing short of reckless this transfer window. We have sold a top quality player for £142m and not replaced him. Absolutely crazy. We've also let Sturridge go out on loan. I know everyone is going to stay 'yeah, but he never played', but neither have lallana, Ings or Solanke, who we are now going to be relying on being as this is a squad game. Also, Sturridge has scored more goals than all those 3 combined. I've read that it is Klopp that has decided not to bring anyone in and not FSG, but if we don't finish top 4 after this he surely has to pay the price with his job as this is a massive gamble to take. As a Liverpool fan I truly hope i'm wrong and we finish top 4 but I think we have really made a mistake, our midfield is poor. Rant over.

Stupid rant questioning Klopps position, my god one would've thought you was on the live chat page. Your speaking nonsense, you do realise we spent big money on a CB everybody was raving about right? we got him, and suddenly that wasn't good enough lol people tend to think because we sold coutinho for all of that money we have it all ready to spend on so and so player, we don't, chill out and judge in the summer.

2.) 01 Feb 2018 03:58:41
You should take a second to also consider what the player wanted—game time. He wasn’t getting that here, and has been a good servant to the club. It was only right that he got his move. He wants to play in Russia this summer and who could blame him.

Aside from the players wishes, he has hardly featured and the manager is placing faith in Ings (who will surprise us im sure of it) and Solanke (a young lad promised to develop here) .

People for Van Dijk was bought this window as well. So while we may have weakened in one area, we at least strengthened (at least in theory) in other areas.

3.) 01 Feb 2018 06:50:26
Currntly 4th with a points gap to 5th and on level points with 3rd. Yep looks like Klopp is an idiot and the squad are weak.

4.) 01 Feb 2018 07:01:28
Haha that made me laugh the original post. Cheers mate. Good start to the morning.

5.) 01 Feb 2018 08:22:13
Why do people keep saying 'panic buy'? We knew that PC wanted out for a long time. Lining up a replacement is not panicing its sensible. It was reported on here last night that we made a late move for demirbay, so that would suggest Klopp isn't totally happy with his squad. We've got the latter stages of ECL and the 2nd half of the season to contend with, I think there were a number of players we could have got that would have improved our squad.

6.) 01 Feb 2018 08:47:00
Realistically all we had to play for domestically when we sold PC were FA cup and top 4. Keeping PC would not have helped us catch Man City, they’re gone.
Selling PC is a calculated gamble, clearly the club believes by spending a world record fee on a defender balances out the loss of PC enough to get us top 4. I agree with that.

7.) 01 Feb 2018 09:05:16
it's one thing to know for a long time and prepare to bring someone in, and totally another to actually secure that target. could bring in a 3rd or 4th option now but then we're stuck with that player in the summer when our 1st option becomes available. nah, I'm algoods with us holding fire.
we got enough weapons to get us over the line, and actually would be disappointed if we didn't with this squad.

8.) 02 Feb 2018 00:43:21
Tommy, don't listen to the insults from salah, your post is totally fine, it's your opinion so can't be wrong. I would say klopp is publicly saying its his choice because he still has a lot of credibility with 80% of the fan base were the owners don't and he's a pawn in there game. So I wouldn't blame him when the you know what hits the fan. Continue to post what you feel to be right, there's a clique of posters on here who monopolise the site and who's posts fly up within seconds of being written and will try and shout you down, stick to your guns kid.

What are peoples opinions on Wijnaldum. Henderson gets a lot of stick for apparently going sideways (though he drove us forward against Everton quite alot) but Wijnaldum doesn't even do that, just constantly backwards. All he does is lay the ball back to whoever passes it to him. I don't see him as a defensive midfielder so not really sure of what he brings at the moment. Would have brought him of a lot sooner than he did.


1.) 13 Dec 2017 22:05:47
I think we will see a shake up of the midfield in the summer.

2.) 13 Dec 2017 22:08:19
A wrong signing whose place is upgraded by the signing of Kieta! He was never a CM in the first place. Klopp like with Hendo shorn him to the current role! You ll keep asking this question on many players going forward! AOC would be next!

3.) 13 Dec 2017 22:11:00
I agree, I don't rate him one bit, he will always have my support whilst been a Liverpool player but he's just not doing it for us one bit.

4.) 13 Dec 2017 22:48:12
For me, there are two sides of Wijnaldum. One, is the man that strings together passes in our midfield and helps it to operate. And two, is the man that is completely annonymous during matches, afraid to make a mistake or do anything that might make him look bad.

Unfortuantely, the latter is the player we seem to get consistently. He has good to great games, don't get me wrong, but they are few and far between. Most games, Gini might as well not be playing. He seems scared, would rather be distant from the action than get stuck in and make himself known. More technical than aggressive.

I think Keita is the upgrade we need, he has a lot more in his locker, is brave, aggressive, and can contribute to offensive moves with his dribbling and pace. Gini is a decent back up option, nothing more. To step in when someone needs a rest or when an injury has occured.

He should not be starting, in my opinion. Unfortunately, we have little option as we have a frequent run of games coming up and he is needed. The man will never decide a game for us, he will always be in the background, either helping our passing game flow or he will be non-existant.

I am sure many will disagree but these are just my thoughts.

5.) 14 Dec 2017 10:46:12
LFC-S MANGO you have summed up my feelings perfectly! I have been keeping a beady eye on Wijnaldum this season and some games go by where I'm sure he doesn't make one forward pass over the 90 minutes. Even when seemingly obvious options are available in front of him, he puts his right foot on top of the ball, swivels around, and plays it backwards to the CBs. Although Henderson gets a lot of criticism a least he attempts to play the ball forward from the same position!



10 Dec 2017 19:45:36
Everton rolled over today and we didn't beat them. IMO no matter how you dress it up, we messed up and dropped 2 points, and for me, Klopp has to take the blame. Out of the players available, the team selected was no where near our strongest and for a merseyside derby that's not good enough. I don't think in anyway was it a pen and Lovren was silly in giving CL an opportunity to make it a pen. When they are for your team you take them.
Klopp tried to be clever and ended up with egg on his face. This was not rotation, it was klopp being clever for the sake of it and must carry the can.


1.) 10 Dec 2017 19:58:03
Barring lovers balls up we were winning so klopp never really got it wrong. A lot of our players have played a lot of minutes and we’re approaching the busiest part of the season.

2.) 10 Dec 2017 20:06:26
I agree with you the team that thumped moscow must of been buzzing and full of confidence yet klopp leaves 6 of them out i understand its a busy period and giving players a rest but I think this was the wrong game to do it klopps desisions baffle me sometimes.

3.) 10 Dec 2017 20:07:52
KLOPP on man. 1 shot on target from a pen that shouldn't have been and he got it wrong?
Did conte get it wrong as his players were TIRED?

4.) 10 Dec 2017 20:13:17
Tommy, Another hindsight post that makes little sense. Johnbarnes is right. Klopp got it right and it would not have mattered cos regardless of lineup, Everton were going to play the same way. Lovren had a good game as he had nothing to do. One can even argue if it was a pen. cos Lewin flew to the ground like he got shot in the back. If you are peeved, you should direct your attention to Mane who messed up a glorious chance in the first half by going alone with 3 LFC players waiting for the square ball for a 2-0 tap-in. But heylet's blame Klopp cos well, he told Mane to be a selfish player. Total nonsense. Klopp got it right and cos we did not win does not make it a wrong lineup.

5.) 10 Dec 2017 21:22:00
Agree totally brover.

6.) 10 Dec 2017 22:46:56
Spot on, Taytoman. Disagree, redsteeve. Every man and his dog knows that Klopp is rotating for this busy period where we have been playing every 3 days for the past 3 weeks and frankly, we have been more than successful as we have picked up 17 points from 21 and qualified for the CL KO stages. If you did not know that he would rotate today so as to keep our boys fresh then, that is not Klopp's fault. As for the lineup, neither you nor I have the info on players fitness, injuries, fatigue and energy levels which influence selection decisions before games so how you can draw conclusions w/ o having the info to analyse, is what is truly baffling.

He put a team out there that was more than good enough to win and they WERE winning had the ref not had a knob-head moment and got conned into giving them a pen. Are you blaming Klopp for the ref's brainfart as well? Are you blaming Klopp for Mane being a jerk and not passing to his team mates for a tap in cos Mane played in midweek vs Moscow? If the answers to the questions are no then I don't see what you could possibly be moaning about.



31 Aug 2017 23:52:21
Cheers to the Eds for the work over the last couple of weeks. Now its closed and I have had my pout that we didn't sign a CB, can't wait to get international break out of the way and back to the action.




31 Aug 2017 20:09:12
IMO, going into a champions league season with lovren, Klavan and Matip as our centre backs is mental. I know people will say Gomez will play, rubbish. He's played more games at full back than he has CB. Emre Can has played more games at CB than Gomez.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 20:16:17
So are you saying that the manager will field and empty shirt if hasn't got 2 of those 3 rather than Gomez? The lad is getting game time and that in itself is significant. If it comes to it I'd fully expect him to be used.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 20:16:55
We all agree mate! But for some reason Klopp disagree. Klavan and Lovren against Dybala, Messi, Huguain and many more to come!

3.) 31 Aug 2017 20:20:10
My thoughts entirely!

4.) 31 Aug 2017 20:21:08
Agree! can't believe we wasted the whole transfer window, defensively.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 20:26:28
I would rather have LFCs defence than Man Citys, Stones Otamendi all puddings, the new goalie they have is worse than Hart.

6.) 31 Aug 2017 20:26:40
Gomez is a centre back though? He has also just been made England u21 captain, such is his talent.

Besides, what is wrong with Matip, Lovren and Klavan? I think they could be improved on, but last time i checked we finished 4th with them last season and we would've been higher if we hadn't been missing Mane, Henderson and Matip for about 10 games.

7.) 31 Aug 2017 20:36:30
We don't all agree. Perhaps if you laid of the players and stopped creating this anxiety amongst the players then perhaps they will perform with more confidence. Take Karius for example. His first mistake with the ball at his feet and most fans were on his case. The poor lads confidence was shot to pieces. Give the players a break, get behind them and you might see improvements.

8.) 31 Aug 2017 20:37:39
Agree with MK
They are 4 decent centre backs. Our style of play will always leave us exposed at the back at times.
That style of play also leads to us scoring plenty of goals.
We look far stronger squad wise this season than last and that includes the defence.
We didn't get everything we want from the window but the. What team does. I think we've done decent business.

9.) 31 Aug 2017 20:47:45
MK, there's nothing wrong with klavan lovren or matip so long as they don't have to defend. I like Gomez but he is very inexperienced. We have no problems going forward our issue is defending, and so far all we've done to address our defensive issues is sign an attacking LB.

10.) 31 Aug 2017 20:46:22
What is wrong with Klavan and Lovren? Do you watch any Liverpool games? Klavan has about as much pace as a 3 legged Donkey and Lovren makes errors every game and is a penalty/ red card waiting to happen. As for them being improved on at their age I really can't see them getting any better.

No chance. We are still trying to get Griezmann. Plus coutinho doesn't need to be replaced. Shocking.

Kopit81, unfortunately in recent times, we have eventually sold every player that we have recieved sizeable bids for. So IF Madrid do bid, the chances are that sooner or later Salah will be playing at the bernabeu.

Sorry for the ignorance but why shouldn't they be allowed to exist? Is it something Red Bull have done?


{Ed001's Note - because they are against all the rules of fan ownership that exist in Germany. They are purely a marketing tool of RB, not a genuine football club. They are the one club in Germany that is hated more than Bayern Munich. Usually you either support Bayern or hate them, but everyone hates RBL.}

Totally agree with MK on this one. As good a player as Griezmann is (and he definitely gets in the team), I would say the need for a creative midfielder is greater. Taking money out of the equation, I still think Lemar suits our needs better. Plus, let's be serious, there is not a chance AG is actually going to join.

Lets just hope he doesn't move to southampton, because god only knows how much we'll be buying him back for season after next.

I don't think Robertson has done badly but also he's not don't that well, he's been nothing more than ok. My main issue with him is the same issue I had with Milner playing there, for some reason he keeps coming inside when he gets the ball and closes down other peoples space. After watching him the couple of times he has played I would say the only attribute he has over Moreno is that he doesn't make rash/ ridiculously stupid challenges in dangerous areas. Being as we've dominated the ball in our last several games I think we've missed Moreno personally.

I thought Robertson was really poor tonight. Him and Wijnaldum offered nothing and whilst they weren't the only players to have bad games they were the worst offenders.
