Hi Eds,

I read recently that Besiktas are not happy at all with Karius' performances since they took him and are now talking about terminating his loan in January and taking Origi instead. Do you know if there's any truth to this? And in your opinion, what what do you think that will do to his mentality if it were to happen?

WelshScouse

{Ed002's Note - I can't see that there is any truth in their looking to or even being able to terminate his Karius' loan. However, Besiktas are looking to add a forward and Divock Origi is one option they are looking at, but their focus is initially on someone else.}


1.) 01 Nov 2018 10:25:45
Things must be going bad if they are considering putting Origi in goal 🤔.


2.) 01 Nov 2018 14:27:10
Karius and his agent dismised those rumours.


3.) 02 Nov 2018 02:36:04
There was an article about this in The Guardian which stated that the Turkish press is having a field day dragging Karius' name through the mud, primarily because there news stories are often picked up by the British press. It also mentioned that the back-up keeper at Besiktas is a former Turkish international and some have suggested he should be starting games over Karius. The article went on to state that Besiktas were happy with Karius, that he had adapted to life well in Turkey, and that such stories were pure fabrication. Make of this what you will but it seemed to make a certain amount of logical sense to me.

Just wanted people's and eds opinion, it's being commonly said that couts is going to replace iniesta who is probably in his last full season and understandably, couts is scared that if Barcelona don't buy him now, they'll move to another player so won't want him next season, everyone crying out for one more season, who would accept £100 million with him staying on a season long loan? Highly unlikely I know but it was mentioned kind of in the bar tonight and was just curious of other people's thoughts.

WelshScouse

1.) 11 Aug 2017 23:17:55
I would prefer more money now.
A season long loan is pointless, he'd have nothing to play for. If the player is not committed to LFC then they are no use to us.


2.) 11 Aug 2017 23:18:58
Why would Barcelona ever do that, the reason why coutinho is wary that it is now or never is because they want a player to come in now . buying now and loaning back would be moronic from barcelonas point of view, especially if your paying 100 million. My opinion anyway.


3.) 11 Aug 2017 23:44:10
Ck14,i wasn't suggesting for one second it was feasible, more just getting views, I'm in agreement with you Ron that I would rather let him go and play someone 100% dedicated in his position so it wasn't me saying I hope this happens, it was only because it was mentioned earlier I wanted to see if this was offered, who would take it?


4.) 11 Aug 2017 23:48:12
i want more.


5.) 12 Aug 2017 00:01:35
Co - the question was whether you would accept that kind of deal! The answer for me is yup yup and yup! laced with a little bit of hesitation tho knowing that it can be difficult to focus for a long period when you know you're dream move is coming.


6.) 12 Aug 2017 00:06:02
If Iniesta can do another season why sell Couts now and leave us short? . Let him go next year and we can find a suitable replacement in the meantime. Oh right it suits Barcelona to get him now and bed him in thus causing us hassle as Ed2 said Liverpool as known for a year he was wanting the men in suits should have had this sorted along time ago.


7.) 12 Aug 2017 01:21:24
After getting over the initial shock of pc's tr and having time to think. He should go. I know he will still perform for us if we force him to stay but I've always felt that if a player isn't 100% committed to the club and the player wants to leave it will have a detrimental effect on the club to make him stay. I don't want anyone here who doesn't want to be here. It's that simple really. No matter how good. For that reason sell him. And it's for that reason I think virgil van djike will definitely join and naby kieta too. We can't bank on that (as far as I'm aware) so in the mean time sign lanzini or luan who shouldn't break the bank and although not pc level (but who is! ) They could both do a job for us. I don't know much about luan, he has v good reputation and clips look brilliant but lanzini I feel could really surprise people, the guy is fantastic, very intelligent footballer, very skillful. I could see him scoring 14 assisting 7, absolutely. Then what have we lost? A hefty wage bill. Plus we have a lot of cash. I'm not suggesting lanzini is as good all round player as pc but like I say, he could certainly go 14 g 7 a

That said we don't fully know the pc situation. Papers are making it sound like war between lfc and coutinio family. We all know what women can be like when they don't get their way or have their sights set on something. I don't wanna right off pc yet but if he really has his heart set on the move so much so that he is falling out with people at the club then it's mad to make him stay. It could actually cost us a title, rather than get us closer to one.


8.) 12 Aug 2017 03:53:44
I think it should be that Liverpool takes a few days to explore whether there is a realistic chance of signing a top player we'd be happy with - perhaps Keita again for even more money, or Max Meyer, or someone PSG needs to sell (like Matuidi. ) and if we can still strengthen the squad before end of the window then let Couts go. Better for everyone's reputation

If we can't get a player with sufficient quality to strengthen midfield or at striker (so Firmino can drop deeper) then he stays and hope he understands the situation and knuckles down like Suarez did.

I'm worried that unlike Suarez who was turned down from joining Arsenal, Coutinho is being refused from his ultimate dream. Given how strongly he clearly feels now, we should not be blocking that move unless we really have zero choice.


9.) 12 Aug 2017 05:07:13
Matuidi to replace Coutinho?


10.) 12 Aug 2017 05:27:37
I habe been impressed by Lanzini a couple times. One match i saw i remember thinking this kid kinda termindato me of Coutinho. don't know why so many people say he is crap.


11.) 12 Aug 2017 05:27:56
Javier Pastore to replace Coutinho?


12.) 12 Aug 2017 06:48:02
Cobra, our wingers this season are going to be Mane and Salah so we don't need a like for like replacement, we just need a player that we think will strengthen the squad. If we got Matuidi, Hendo and Matuidi at base of midfield would be an awesome combo, freeing up Lallana and Gini to play further forward.

The point is we have the freedom to rethink how we shape the team, and we should be bringing in the best player that improves the overall squad. We still have the midfield combo of Hendo/ Gino/ Lallana that was so effective last year remember, so it's not even prescriptive a new recruit even needs to be in midfield IMO. Could potentially be a world class striker like Lewa and dropping Firmino into no.10 (I know never going to happen, just making a point) .


13.) 12 Aug 2017 07:12:46
It is a job. People change jobs. And as any other employer does LFC needs to consider if need someone to do that job now he is leaving. Personally I don't think playing position is the issue. The money could be used to bring in someone to have as big an impact in a different position.


14.) 12 Aug 2017 07:22:54
LFC will probably sell at 120m Euro now that he has handed in a request to leave, just hope LFC spend it wisely.


15.) 12 Aug 2017 07:44:29
LFC should do unto others. Barcelona got a lot for Neymar insist they spend it.


16.) 12 Aug 2017 08:06:25
I will be so happy when the transfer window shuts. I don't think I have been this unconcerned about a new season before. I'm usually buzzing but I'm all 'Meh' at the moment. LFC need to get it together in regards to how they do business.


17.) 12 Aug 2017 08:43:18
Unconcerned? Our star player wants out and will surely of caused unrest in the camp by handing in a transfer request a day before our first game, can is refusing to sign a contract, our top targets aren't for sale, we are still shockingly bad at the back, same defence as last year, Robertson will be a benchwarmer! For todays game, no coutinho, lallana, sturridge, clyne or lovren! Nothing to be concerned about hey?


18.) 12 Aug 2017 09:35:18
Liverpool should give Barcelona 48hrs to put £120 mill on the table in full payment. If they won't then there is no deal and he stays. I don't want to keep anyone who doesn't want to stay. but we must get the maximum we can in order to replace him.


19.) 12 Aug 2017 09:37:09
Do on to others?
So when we force the cash out of Barcelona you would like everyone else to do the same to us as we look for replacements?


20.) 12 Aug 2017 12:33:44
Should tell Barcelona you can have him at the end of the transfer window for 120mill and between now and then try and get someone in. I don't know if this is possible but I would tell them not to leak this to the press or the deal is off just so other clubs don't know we have 120 mill to spend so they can't inflate their prices. I personally want him gone handing in a TR 1 day before our first game and 4 days before a massive game for us. If he handed the TR in last month i would have wished him all the best but coming out with crap about doing it amicably is bullshit he wanted his 5 percent of the transfer fee.


21.) 12 Aug 2017 12:54:55
Unconcerned may have been the wrong word. I meant unconcerned as in, I don't even care the season is starting because pre season has been a let down. Maybe Depressed is a better expression.


22.) 12 Aug 2017 15:21:01
Neymar deal has put everyone's head in the clouds. Cannot believe people are calling 90 million a pitance (sorry about spelling) it's 0.1 % of Britain's debt to euro union! Coutinio is class but not the 2nd best player ever. Far from it.

That said, as we are directly affected by the neymar deal we too should see an inflated price. I like the idea of raiding PSG as they must have decent players who need selling.


23.) 12 Aug 2017 15:23:16
Easy to say "buy a top striker" but who? This could've been sorted out sooner and we could have seriously gone for lacazette. He looks great and I think we will live to regret not making it happen. Especially if arsenal finish above us.


24.) 12 Aug 2017 17:59:16
I think psg cm would be decent. I'm not completely sold on gini wijnaldum. I think he is a pussy. That's why he never scores away goals. He closed his eyes to head the ball today which led to watford equiliser. BEFORE his head made contact! I think goals against city and boro make us think he is better than he is. He's okay, part of me really likes him but I think liverpool lack metal. Imo we have 2 players with real steel in em and that's Hendo and Can. The fact I haven't added a cb in that list really highlights liverpool problem.

Successful lfc teams of the past have been full of "hard" players. Gerrard, hanman, mascherano, hypia, skrtel agger Ince souness mcman. The list goes on. People will say football has changed but chelsea were full of bruisers last year and people will always dislike getting hurt. Kieta znd van djike would certainly give us some edge. It should hurt to play liverpool.


25.) 12 Aug 2017 23:05:18
Red sky I don't want it, I fully expect everyone else to want that money cos they will and always have done.

Hi eds, is someone having a laugh suggesting 18million for Rossi? Please tell me we're not interested.

WelshScouse

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool.}


1.) 08 Dec 2015 13:45:30
Someone to compete with Sturridge. For time out injured, that is.


2.) 08 Dec 2015 14:10:25
Perhaps the strategy is if we have Pato, Rossi, Sturridge in the squad we might be able to get at least one of them on the pitch between them.


3.) 09 Dec 2015 00:00:17
Will prefer drogba or ibra or eto . at least they are fit most of time.


4.) 09 Dec 2015 01:36:52
To be fair zimbo, pato has played nearly 50 games this calendar year. Least I read that. Scored 25 or so goals, don't know the exact number.


5.) 09 Dec 2015 07:59:43
Is there any hope of Ings returning this January, i am in agreement with Klop's direction, stop buying finished products, start COACHING those you have on ground and moving only those who are unteachable.

{Ed001's Note - Ings is out for the season.}

Hendo, Gini, both out tonight, Lovren out, bit nervous about this tonight. Lallana for me doesn't have it anymore, be it through injuries or whatever, shaq not been impressive starting recently either so maybe the thought is for shaq to come on for lallana as impact sub which he seems to do well? Fingers crossed lads.

WelshScouse

1.) 04 Feb 2019 19:20:08
Wtf? Is this correct Ed001 that Gini and Hendo are now also injured mate? Christ this is getting bad now on the injury front. Both minor knocks I hope?

{Ed001's Note - stop stressing. It is not a big deal every team has these kind of knocks.}


2.) 04 Feb 2019 19:52:50
I am stressing though mate. Lallana looked terrible against Leicester, bench looks very weak also. Argh well I guess it is what it is.


3.) 04 Feb 2019 22:09:31
Truth be told, even rogers did not bottle it like the way Klopp is going about it. Rogers lost it at the end. this is becoming a nightmare. how can one sleep after such disappointment.


4.) 04 Feb 2019 22:13:09
Looked even worse vs WH, Lallana was.


5.) 04 Feb 2019 23:03:48
Telly, you need to give up the embarrassing posts, man. "Klopp has bottled it". On what grounds? Are we not still top or

"Even rogers did not bottle it like the way Klopp is going about it. Rogers lost it at the end. this is becoming a nightmare. how can one sleep after such disappointment. " Wow, what a drama queen. You need some Kleenex, a glass of water or a nap to calm you down? GET IT TOGETHER, man! We are still top until we NO longer are and that is what matters now cos we are struggling atm and the LAST thing we need now is a post like yours at this time.

{Ed033's Note - I don't know why the papers don't say it's all Putin's fault like they do with everything else. It's got to be the Russians hacking into something or other. :)


6.) 04 Feb 2019 23:28:43
yes, I don't like the way Klopp is going about things at the moment, I think the nerves are getting to him too,
I am very worried right now, the Injury to Gomez Lovren and Trent has hit us big time, we don't have the same power going forward, I just hope that we have not blown it,
we have to get points on the board otherwise it will be too difficult .

{Ed033's Note - Klopp won't be getting a Knighthood this year from the Queen, that's for sure. :)


7.) 05 Feb 2019 00:01:29
Ha Ed 033, Klopp might get his Knighthood, if he can win this League, when it looks like it's City's now .


8.) 05 Feb 2019 00:13:01
whats this about Putin, bet he is backing City, with all his dodgy money,
but really, we can still win this League .

{Ed033's Note - Yes, Putin is obviously hacking mojo from LFC and selling it to City. Very dodgy, 100% Fact :)


9.) 05 Feb 2019 01:46:55
Lallana was poor but his skill was class, the way he played milner in.


 

 

21 Dec 2018 04:41:43
Sitting in the airport bored so just thought I'd post. I think for me, the surprising thing this season is how many people have stood up and improved. The beginning of the season, with the new signings I couldn't see anything but the bench for milner but he is an absolute beast. Gomez is starting to become 50% of the strongest centre back partnership we've had in years. Shaq I really didn't think we needed and have happily been proven very wrong. Fab, klopp was right to ease him in gently and starting to look the real deal. Robbo, what can I say, becoming, if not already the best lb in the league. TAA still very young yet improving all the time. Gini seems to be finding the consistency he's been missing for so long and we're getting glimpses of the player he could be. Keita showing he can connect midfield to attack, needs a bit more settling in. Hendon as always, captain reliable. Even sturridge seems to want to prove his time at Liverpool is not quite done. I've purposely left out the front three as they carried us last season where as this season the rest of the team have taken a lot of the pressure off them. They seem like they're just about to click in to next gear and if that happens then we're in for a treat. All in all, very happy. Quick mention to lovren and Matip, delivered when called upon and look a lot more assured and that can only be because of my last two mentions, VVD and Alisson, what a difference these two have made. Absolutely outstanding.

Fingers crossed for three points tonight, not an easy game whatsoever but at the same time, I feel more confident going into games this season than I have for a long time. Anything is possible and Klopp has made us believe again. Let's enjoy the ride and see where it takes us. If I don't post again in the next few days, merry Christmas to all eds and reds, all supporters from other teams that read these sites, hope you all have an enjoyable and most importantly, safe Christmas.

Not holiday unfortunately, returned to Malta for a couple of days to see the missus and remember what the sun looks like, now on my way back to rainy Wales haha.

Hi eds, just a quick question, the team Chelsea are playing now, I noticed the keeper wearing a gumshield, does this happen a lot on football?

WelshScouse

{Ed001's Note - no idea, never gave it any thought to be honest.}


1.) 13 Dec 2018 19:51:04
I used to wear a padded rugby under shirt in goal, no gumshield though. 20 years in sticks and still got all 11 teeth 🤙🏼.


2.) 13 Dec 2018 20:37:35
Are they all your own though 😉.


3.) 14 Dec 2018 09:15:53
My ma subbed in for the last 2 minutes of a hockey game in goal as the keeper went off injured and didn't take any of the gear as game was just over .

Took a hockey ball straight to the mouth lost all but like 3 teeth I think they saved. this was late 70s early 80s mind you so I don't think protective equipment was up to standard.


 

 

06 Dec 2018 01:13:36
My view on tonight and going forward, for anyone that is interested. With mane and robbo injured, that's two key players, if we could've replaced them in the starting line up and still coped well, that says our strength in depth is better than previous seasons. When I saw all of the other changes, I did panic a little. Realistically, we didn't start well but by the time the first tactical substitute had been made, we had equalised. I was very happy to see klopp still make the same substitutes even though we had equalised, I was worried he may tell one of them to sit back down. The thing is, so many times we have thought, when city or others in previous seasons have not had it their own way, we have been envious of the quality they've brought off the bench, we were 1-1 and brought two quality, some would argue world class players off the bench and finished the game off. And they got some rest in as well. I don't agree with so many changes but it worked, we got three points and that is what we'll be judged on going forward.

Second point, everyone has argued city won't drop many points but if teams go at them, they are vulnerable. This is true but the wrong time of the season to do it. Teams set up against city for damage limitation at the moment. That's why they run riot. Getting into the last quarter of the season, with the bottom of the table likely to be close between six or seven teams, that is when teams have to throw caution to the wind and just go for it. That is where I believe city will drop points. If we can still be there or thereabouts at this time, we will stand a very good chance. Bearing in mind, even if we'd started our full strength team today, Burnley still would've had a go. If this was city tonight, you would've seen a different Burnley. They hold the rear factor and rightly so, the way they play. I'm not interested at the moment in waiting for city to drop points as I don't think it'll happen yet so all I focus on is Liverpool getting three. In the last 8-9 games of the season, when staying up is a must for some of the bottom teams, added to a possible champions League run that city may concentrate on more, I can see them dropping some, not many, but maybe enough for us to get what we've been waiting for, for so many years.

Either way, we've started brilliantly, we haven't hit maximum potential as yet and we've at got players who are only now beginning to find their game at Liverpool. Oh, and if I didn't mention it, we're in second place and two points behind one of the best teams in the world. A lot to be positive about right now and I will continue to be optimistic and enjoy what we're achieving at the moment as I strongly believe, there's a lot more to come from us.

Have a good evening everyone, another three points bagged and here's to many more.

I really hope he is not going to be rushed back early to try and relieve some pressure from Brendan on the hope he has a stormer and scores the winner, because if he is rushed back early, it will be more than likely he will pick up an injury in the warm up and be out until after christmas

Thanks for that Ed, I'm still trying to work out who is more stupid between Hennessy and Ramos. Surely they both know that the whole football world know they're guilty of their accusations, Ramos because he actually admitted it before backtracking and Hennessy because his excuse is poorer than you'd expect from a toddler. Obviously Hennesy's is a lot more serious due to what his actions represent but I'm talking of the denials in general when caught red handed. Just baffles me how stupid these people thinks the fans are. Hope you have a good weekend.

WelshScouse

{Ed001's Note - I really do not get their denials at all. Ramos plain as day said he deliberately got himself booked. There is no point backtracking and denying saying it. He could have easily said that it was just a misunderstanding, he was hyped on adrenalin (probably extra adrenalin from one of the many exemptions he uses for big games on a regular basis) etc and did not mean it the way it sounded. To flat out lie though, well that just makes things worse. Still he plays for Real Madrid so he will no doubt be cleared of all charges!

As for Hennessey, if anything he has his mouth covered like he is trying to whisper, not shout louder. The guy is clearly an imbecile who just can't own up to making a bad joke about the German guy who the picture was for.}

Hi Ed, quick question, with Dwight Gayle admitting deception and getting a ban for it, can you ever see the rules being changed in instances like this where it has clearly cost a team two points, to have the points reversed? I personally can't see it happening as it opens the door for any incorrect decision to have the same done with it but just something a few of us were talking about so thought I'd ask your opinion.

WelshScouse

{Ed001's Note - I think you have hit the nail on the head. Instead they will try and use VAR to stop it earlier.}

Hasn't Gomez recorded the fastest speed of any LFC player this season so far? If Gomez is covering right back against Bayern I don't think speed will be a problem.
