Jon Flanagan, alongside Emre Can, confirmed as leaving this summer upon expiry of his contract.

On the one hand a shame, I remember having high hopes for the Scouse Cafu following is wonder goal!

On the other hand, what a seemingly horrible human being.

Nevertheless, thanks for the memories Jon and good luck.

Just what went wrong with Flanagan? Few seasons ago he was dynamite. Gets an injury and never seen again.


2.) 08 Jun 2018 18:49:01
He beat a girl and was found guilty. Should have terminated his contract that very moment.


3.) 08 Jun 2018 19:01:33
That was a recent thing - he disappeared off the radar well before the incident.


4.) 08 Jun 2018 19:19:40
Injuries mainly, Salah. And less attacking than Klopp likes in his full backs. Plus the criminal thing more recently.


5.) 08 Jun 2018 19:25:12
Exactly my thoughts too Harry.


6.) 08 Jun 2018 20:32:52
He was lucky to come into the team when things got better, so he got all the hype. never was good enough. Hard work was the only thing he had, and that can only get you so far.

Good player doing well for Rafa all young players make mistakes and I do not condone racism but I do not know the facts either so I would hang him out to dry.

Sky Sports saying that they have looked into the Mahrez story and have been told (suggested by sources at the club? ) that Liverpool are not interested in Mahrez, there has been no contact between Liverpool and Leicester and that Leicester would want more than the c£50m reported for him.

It goes on to say that we are looking for an attacking midfielder this window, just not Mahrez.

Maybe laying that story to rest for now?

Still interested if we can find someone to inject some magic who is no CL cup tied.

Zeddicus

1.) 07 Jan 2018 03:28:45
Or maybe they (Sky News) read what Ed002 has been saying all along?


2.) 07 Jan 2018 04:51:58
If we went for Mahrez he wouldn't be cheap at all. I think his contract runs until 2020 and Leicester turned down some big bids from Roma in the summer.

I hope the club has a clear plan of who they are going for to replace Pipco. It would be unforgivable if they sold him without a contingency plan in place.

Red Sandman.

6.) 07 Jan 2018 09:23:19
Lol, I like the fact that sky sports have looked into the story and said it’s all made up! Maybe they should do likewise with their own breaking stories before worrying about what others have said!


7.) 07 Jan 2018 10:09:26
So the long goodbye is over,
He’s got his transfer and we’ve got a very good price,
Yes I was not a big fan of his, when push come to shove he went missing in
Far too many games, mainly CUP FINALS, if it’s presumes your ‘WORLD CLASS’
You can’t go missing in big games, you should be making the difference, he probably
Thinks he’s better than he is. also if LFC want to stop all there presumed best players being cherry picked by the big teams they need to start competing and winning trophies, if FSG can’t do it they need to step for aside for somebody with deeper pockets and more ambition, but first and foremost we need to be competing and WINNING trophies or this scenario will happen again with SALAH, MANE etc.


8.) 07 Jan 2018 11:36:22
Good point Deano, they've hit their bets target so can now quash the story 😉😂.


9.) 07 Jan 2018 17:11:50
Exactly Sandman, all the people suggesting he would be a cheap alternative are deluded. Leicester will ask more from us than Roma etc because we’re in the same league and have just got a massive fee for Couts.


10.) 07 Jan 2018 17:30:08
U mean like the way we said Coutinho is not for sale? Good news then.


 

 

26 Oct 2017 18:37:02
Anyone know about the Ings rumours? Apparently teams (lower EPL and high Championship) are looking to take Ings on loan in January.

What is his current injury situation? According to Physio Room he's not injured, so I'm guessing he's trying to play his way back to match fitness in the U23s?

Is the club looking for a loan for him in the second part of the season to help with match fitness for 2018/ 19, or is he no longer seen as part of first team plans?

Any info would be very welcome as I really rate Danny and feel so sorry for the lad with his terrible luck with injuries at really bad times!

Zeddicus

1.) 26 Oct 2017 19:04:01
He probably needs a loan away to play some first team football, he’s barely played for 2 seasons due to injury. Look at how long it took Radamel Falcao to get back to form following a similar injury.


2.) 26 Oct 2017 19:11:35
I really like the player so if he goes I hope he has a brilliant second half of season and gets in good condition for next season.


3.) 26 Oct 2017 20:21:05
Would do well at Norwich with a brilliant little player like Maddison behind him.


4.) 26 Oct 2017 23:28:21
Lower EPL? Everton are desperate for a striker and he wouldn't even have to move house ;)

A different take on the GK situation.

A number of posters have said, over the last few weeks, that if we can't get a significant improvement over our existing goalkeepers (i. e. Oblak or Alisson) then we shouldn't bother.

I disagree. David Brailsford (cycling supremo) firmly believes in the theory of marginal gains, as do I.

Basically, improving one thing by 100% is infinitely harder than improving 100 things by 1% - marginal gains.

Applying it to football, look at, for example, the difference that Arsene Wenger brought to the EPL when focusing on players diets (amongst other things) in the late 1990s. He won 2 doubles in his first 6 seasons and then went undefeated in 2003-4. There's a whole load of other factors involved too, but his approach revolutionised the EPL approach to diet and fitness.

Likewise, Klopp with his approach to fitness and the constant press.

So what's this got to do with our keeper conundrum?

We may not be able to get Alisson or Oblak (or De Gea or Courtois for that matter), but I would like to see an improvement in our goalkeeping capability. Even if its only 1%.

That 1% could be the difference between winning the league or not.

Zeddicus

1.) 16 Jul 2018 09:23:30
I think you've misunderstood a lot of people's argument Zed. The argument is that perception of Karius's ability has been massively colored by one concussed performance and that he has been very strong for us for most of last year. It's not that if we can't improve on him with a top quality keeper we shouldn't try at all, it's that most of the secondary quality keepers are not improvements at all - Navas, Clissen, Butland, Leno etc range between 'as good' and 'a bit worse'.


2.) 16 Jul 2018 09:25:56
Trouble is you don't go paying £30 plus million for a 1% upgrade. And who's to say Karius hasn't the potential to improve himself by more than that over this coming season alone?


3.) 16 Jul 2018 09:29:56
I agree with you - Zeddicus.

Trent better than Clyne.
VVD better than Matip.
Robertson better than Moreno.
Fabinho better than Can.
Keita better than Gini.

In the last year we have improved lots of areas. We just need the final push. Fekir and a keeper.


4.) 16 Jul 2018 09:35:09
All I know is that Courtois goes to Madrid, Alisson to Chelsea and either Cillessen or Navas to us, we’ve metaphorically settled for the fat asthmatic kid who’s rubbish at football.


5.) 16 Jul 2018 09:40:08
I think there's more than Karius's ability between the sticks at question, its the knock on affect of how the defence hasn't any confidence in the man behind them, which changes their decision making a lot, its surprising how having a calming figure behind you can lift a defenders game.


6.) 16 Jul 2018 11:06:10
Agree with Flash. Gains like diet don't cost the club 10s of millions for minimum gains. Taking a ' slightly better than what we have ' approach will be expensive for potentially very little gain.


7.) 16 Jul 2018 11:36:50
If we're talking marginal gains then maybe a look at replacing the goalkeeping coach should be considered as you could argue none of the keepers bought have improved to any great degree. Maybe replacing JA would achieve the gains required rather than spending sqillions of pounds on another stab at perceived excellence.


8.) 16 Jul 2018 12:56:12
We’d better watch for Spurs and Utd getting new keepers then Lancaster. I mean how can their defences be confident in them after Lloris did exactly what Karius did only this time in a World Cup final and De Gea made the worst keeping mistake I saw at the World Cup when he threw one in in Spain’s first game.
All keepers have bad days and all make mistakes it’s how they come back from it that’s important. Karius just hasn’t had a chance to ‘get back on the horse’ yet but when he does I wish him all the best.


9.) 16 Jul 2018 13:05:31
“we’ve metaphorically settled for the fat asthmatic kid who’s rubbish at football”

So in Navas case that’s a guy who has been number 1 at one of the biggest clubs in world football for a number of years, has been in goal for three successive champions league wins and won a league title.

Sorry but you don’t have that record if your garbage.

I am not saying by any means he is a perfect keeper, he isn’t (and has many flaws) , but let’s keep some perspective eh.


10.) 16 Jul 2018 13:40:40
I tried that argument yesterday Wassa-lfc but got shot down.


11.) 16 Jul 2018 15:42:48
John O'Shea made 71 champions league appereances, winning it once and winning the league 5 times. Wes Brown made slightly less, but won it twice and won the league 7 times. Football is a team game, and Navas isn't an amateur - but then neither are Karius, Mings and Ward. His trophy cabinet doesn't make him a quality footballer though.


12.) 16 Jul 2018 16:18:54
Those mistakes came at international level not with the team on a weekly basis, those 2 keepers have a high consistency level and can keep their teams in matches if not win them, Karius has kept us in maybe 2 games since he signed, had a chance when he first came, got dropped for not being "ready", came back in and didn't set the world alight and only stayed in because we had nothing better (even though Ward was about), has started pre season poorly and already is getting heckled, hopefully Navas doesn't come in and if we don't anyone in, which will be a huge mistake I hope Ward does finally get his chance.

6.) 11 Jul 2018 15:58:40
By the way, I'm not suggesting this because I think he's the answer for us (I don't), or that we don't need an upgrade (we do), or even that I don't think the abuse of him is vile (I do), but mainly because I'm bored of all of the posts attacking him!

Que Sarah, Sarah (as I used to say to an old girlfriend! ), let's let it rest for a while at least.

7.) 11 Jul 2018 16:16:36
Well said Zed.


8.) 11 Jul 2018 16:33:51
Good one, Zed. For me, I just saw this error as a "setback" in the recovery process cos like recovering from anything, these things can happen. As for anyone thinking that he will NOT make mistakes anymore this year, they are gravely mistaken. GK's are human and will make mistakes, fact. Even "Mr Perfect" DDG made 4 mistakes that I counted (worst GK at the WC, IMO) last season so if he can't be exempted from them, then what chance does a recovering Karius have? What I am hoping is that he gets some good games under his belt and when a mistake does happen cos it will, majority of us can rally around him then. Here's to hoping.


9.) 11 Jul 2018 17:34:46
Yes DDG does make mistakes, as does every keeper but does Karius make the great saves these keepers do and earn the team points that the might not get? Have you seen some of the great saves in the World Cup, do you honestly believe Karius can do this? Has he ever done it?

Ps I'm all for an amnesty, honest!


10.) 11 Jul 2018 18:01:26
An old mate of mine ("back in the day") 's dad used to be a session musician in the 60's playing the Congo's, well there's footage of him at the back of the stage playing when the Rolling Stones did their Hyde park concert, but had unfortunately passed away by the time I knew his son. Anyway, he had a phrase he used to use that got picked up on by a relatively famous musician in a reasonably famous band at the time, "Ob la di, ob-la-da, life goes on, bra". We all want Liverpool do be successful and to be competitive with the best, but whatever happens, life will go on regardless. So much negativity (and worse), at the end of the day achieves nothing, except more, negativity. Of course people are entitled, even obligated, to share their opinions on whatever topic they feel is important, but once the point (in a reasonably respectful way) has been made, going on and on about it is pointless, move on, life's too short.

{Ed002's Note - Sounds like Rebop Kwaku Baah. Great story.}


11.) 11 Jul 2018 18:06:18
Irish, The comparison between Karius and DDG in terms of ability is quite disingenuous and dishonest. Fact: Karius is not as good as DDG. You happy? Good. Now that we have cleared that up, on to the real debate. I posted that DDG makes mistakes. Karius also makes mistakes. Both things are correct as two things can be correct at the same time. Secondly, You ask if Karius can make consistent saves like DDG? Well, depends on which DDG you speak of.

If it was the DDG of his first two years at Utd were he was so poor that Rio Ferdinand once said that FErgie came to get the snr players' opinion on if he should start DDG or the mighty Tomasz Krusczak (yeah, that guy) then YES, I see it cos Karius did so vs Newcastle, Twice vs WH, once vs Hudd, twice vs Spurs and save a pen and oh, most clean sheets in the CL, all things DDG that era could and did NOT do (check the the clips of these games if you like) . Does that answer your question?

Now if it is the DDG of today then NO, Karius has not shown he can NOT do that on a consistent basis. Could it be that it is cos he is still learning the game in the PL and did not have the chance to be the full time starter like DDG was and not in and out (Klopp's fault, IMO)? I don't know. Either way not saying he is the answer BUT, if he is the guy we go with as it seems likely, we need to get behind him cos he is still in he recovery process and setbacks like vs Tranmere will happen. Great convo tho, Irish.


12.) 11 Jul 2018 19:45:09
Brover. With respect. If you don't want to compare Karius with DDG then don't bring him up in your post. DDG was clearly a very talented keeper when he came to United and now is probably the best in the world. Can you see the talent in Karius? I can't, honestly. I never seen it before he signed and nothing he has done has changed my mind remotely. It is one thing to reel off saves that I call standard goalkeeping saves but that was not my question. So I will ask again, has Karius ever made a save that in all honesty he had no right to make, the difference that top keepers make to club or even country? The answer for me is no. He doesn't have it in his skill set. For me he is punching above his weight at LFC and can't take the pressure of playing for a big club. I think Klopp will buy another keeper and the new keeper will be in nets come the start of the season and all this will be put to bed.

The key thing with all of these "reports" is the terminology.

"sources close to Liverpool" told Sky Sports they have not bid for Alisson.


Sky Italia reported:

"Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport Italia is reporting that Alisson is “close” to a move to Merseyside.

Il Messaggero reported this morning that the Liverpool offer would be €60m plus €10m in bonuses, with Sky's Fabrizio Romano confirming a total €70m offer. "

Nothing is direct from Liverpool here.

So let's just wait and see.

Interesting one for Taiwo, thanks Adam, I think I read the same article earlier!

Makes absolute sense to me. Looks like Brewster is the one who's going to make the step up from the U-23s to the first team squad this season, and Solanke is pretty raw into the first team too.

Nice to give Taiwo a bit of stability and an opportunity to establish himself at a team that is at least Europa league level.

This may have formed part of the Fabinho negotiations as well.

The time to get Pickford would have been before he joined Everton.

He gives me the most faith of all England keepers, albeit I'd like to see more of Butland as he had, IMO, more potential than Pickford at the same age.

I'm with you on this one, Kloppsboss, although it appears the majority are against!

Don't get me wrong, I'd like both, but if I had to choose, it would be Alderweireld, he really is one of the best in the world.

In an ideal world, I would compromise (or even forgo? ) a keeper to get Fekir and Alderweireld.
