Any truth in the rumors about Thiago Maia. Just read it in the Irish Independent who rarely cover transfer news.

{Ed002's Note - Santos' Thiago Maia is of interest to PSG, Monaco, Zenit and Napoli in addition to Chelsea, Fiorentina and Manchester United who all have sustained interest and spoke with his previous agent. He is one of three players at the Olympics that Chelsea were interested in and a bid is still expected after seemingly successful discussions were held with his new representative. PSG has spoken to Santos and after being rebuffed may return with an offer and Napoli have made it clear that they too are interested in making an offer, but the interest of Juventus, Monaco and Arsenal has waned - as the interest of Manchester United may have done. It is unlikely that any move will happen before the summer or potentially January 2018 unless an over the odds offer is made. Liverpool had a scout present at a Santos game in November (as did Zenit, Benfica and Kashima Antlers according to Santos) and that may be the cause of the report regarding Liverpool interest - but I really don't know why they had someone at the game.}

Predominantly left footed so would fit in well at Liverpool where he would probably get game time so hope this scout at the santos game was there for Maia.


2.) 19 Dec 2016 08:14:50
The Irish independent is a rag, quickest to the line when it's time to tell the killer spider in the bananas tales. (Which began as an urban legend decades ago)


3.) 18 Dec 2016 20:25:26
Thanks for the detailed reply ed002.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Michael Edwards promoted to role of sporting director. A newly formed position. He will be in charge of all transfer and contract negotiations. He will also oversee player recruitment for first and
U23 team.


1.) 05 Nov 2016 20:19:12
But Klopp will have the final say on any transfer.


 

 

16 Sep 2016 18:55:36
I am hearing Firmino is out. Will these injuries ever stop.


1.) 16 Sep 2016 19:38:13
Yeah plagued aren't we!


2.) 16 Sep 2016 20:30:48
Someone mentioned earlier how Atkinson always seems to be a problem for Liverpool. Ivanovich stepped in Lallana's foot three times in 10 seconds, one of which was clearly intentionally. No card. Then he slams Winaldjum over, and yet Atkinson still holds back the card.

Not conspiracy, just observation.


3.) 16 Sep 2016 20:38:54
Lovren. Henderson.

I can't contain my happiness.


4.) 16 Sep 2016 20:48:56
The difference being that even with him out our front three is still immense and not weakened!


5.) 16 Sep 2016 20:23:48
Luckily we got another Brazilian who can step up.


6.) 16 Sep 2016 23:32:51
Don't think Atkinson did too bad, two bookings in a game with Diego Costa in and I don't feel the two given were particularly bad, Lucas' was soft and Willian's for moaning.


7.) 20 Sep 2016 13:29:15
He did a good job of not giving cards except Ivanovic should have been sent off for that stamp.


 

 

10 Sep 2016 15:43:47
Anyone hearing that Lovern is injured and won't play. If so i presume Lucas will slot in there.


1.) 10 Sep 2016 17:17:19
Why? When Klaven is on the bench?

{Ed001's Note - because Lucas is better.}


2.) 10 Sep 2016 17:23:25
Have you seen lovrens eye?

Ouch.


3.) 10 Sep 2016 18:21:13
You sure Lucas is better ed lol.

{Ed001's Note - yes. One mistake doesn't change my opinion. To be fair he shouldn't have had the ball in the first place to make the mistake.}


4.) 10 Sep 2016 19:01:21
Ed's any comments on Wijnaldum's performance, he makes Shelvey look better.

{Ed001's Note - he is still getting used to the way we play. I will judge him after at least 10 games.}


5.) 10 Sep 2016 20:17:20
Looks like goals from midfield may be our saving grace this season, if you count firmino as a midfielder like he was today, all our goals in the league have come from them. Playing the two either side of a sitting midfielder looks good with the fluid front three. Although, that side with coutinho in for wijnaldum looks best for me, with can Karius and lovren coming back in.
Actually think lallana suits that position, he's added a few goals too, so not sure what i'd do with can, still think he's the better option mind. Wijnaldum will Get lots of game time I think, with Stewart covering for hendo and wijnaldum for the other two. Hard to see grujic getting much time mind, which is a shame.


6.) 10 Sep 2016 20:22:05
I fear a bit for Lucas now Ed 1. Klopp has shown he is ruthless. That mistake could've changed everything today. I hope I'm wrong because I think Lucas is a really good player.


7.) 10 Sep 2016 20:28:56
Wijnaldum was. good today. Links play well with little passes that keeps the ball moving. Just needs a goal then we can move on from criticizing him after we moved on from criticizing lallana.


8.) 10 Sep 2016 20:51:57
If Klopp was that ruthless Sunshine, then we'd only have Matip available to play in defence because everyone else has made mistakes.


9.) 10 Sep 2016 21:10:32
I'm one of Wiji's critics but he was much better today. Lucas made the mistake, not Mingo because he was the one who took his eye of the ball and then compounded the error by inadvertently passing to Vardy in panic. That's on him and he knows it. However, Lucas didn't put a foot wrong throughout the game after that and his sense of anticipation, positional awareness and experience allowed him to cut out a few counters and marshalled Vardy very well.

{Ed001's Note - the initial mistake was still Mignolet's in passing the ball to a man who was being chased down with nowhere to go. It was a double mistake.}


10.) 10 Sep 2016 22:07:12
Shame for Lucas as he had a good game apart from that, still he has more assists than Pogba this season.


11.) 11 Sep 2016 00:55:50
Completely agree with Ed. Lucas made a mistake but Mignolet should have calmed down assessed the situation and not passed to him given where the Leicester players were.

That being said his reading of the game; being in the right position for most of the headers and distribution was excellent. Given Lucas and Milner not being defenders between them and Henderson I thought they worked very well together.

Not sure how Lallana got man of the match on Sky; too many tricks in the wrong places and giving the ball away.

Oh my when Frimino took that ball down in their penalty area - he at times (as did the team) looked frightening in attack!


12.) 10 Sep 2016 23:54:20
Klopp said Lucas was brilliant today, and he was. He made a big error, but didn't let it affect him.

Lucas did have somewhere to go though. He took a poor touch and lost control of the ball. Blaming Migs for it is pretty ridiculous. Unreal that the lynch-mob want to blame him for everything. Agree with Hamilton Red 100%. How could I not!


13.) 10 Sep 2016 22:00:35
Well said Ed 001. Poor judgement yet again from Mignolet. On another issue entirely, I'm getting old now so there's probably a really good answer to this, but what's the fascination that GKs have with punching the ball. Simple physics says that when two roundish objects (fist and football)! collide the free one can head off in any direction with at least a high percentage chance it will go to the opposition. Do they not teach GKs to catch s ball these days and then distribute it sensibly (rather than give a team mate the equivalent of a hospital pass!


14.) 10 Sep 2016 22:56:58
You're reaching ed001. That's Lucas's fault hands down. Klopp wants the players to play it from the back. Lucas gifted them the goal. He had plenty of time to make a better decision. He just took a horrible touch and then tried correcting it with an even more horrible one.

{Ed001's Note - I am not reaching, it was a bad error by Migs. Yes Klopp wants his team to play that way if possible, but all the other times he didn't make the pass because of the defenders being closed down. Why do it then? It was his error. You are simply blind if you can't see that was a mistake by Mignolet. Lucas made a mess of it, but he should never have been placed in that position in the first place. And don't talk crap about him having plenty of time, he clearly was not expecting the pass and was preparing to move forward when Migs suddenly takes it quickly at a time when we were dominant and should have been taking our time over everything and keeping it calm. Again a mistake by Migs.}


15.) 11 Sep 2016 04:37:27
He had plenty time to control turn and find a pass u see many of keepers passing that same ball. He took a poor touch his 2nd 1 was a tackle. Hopefully that's karius back in now tho anyways with lovren so it's all good. A very good win.

{Ed001's Note - look again, he wasn't expecting a pass, he was about to start jogging forwards, which is why the touch was so bad as it was an adjustment while trying to look round and see someone to pass to. As for plenty of time, if he had so much time, why was his second touch a tackle? Ridiculous to suggest he had plenty of time, he was being closed down before the ball was passed to him.

It was a bad touch, he made a mess of it, but he did not have plenty of time or he would have had time to recover. I don't even see how anyone who watched it could suggest that he had plenty of time. Mind anyone who thinks a guy on the edge of his penalty box should turn with the ball is obviously not thinking straight. He was looking forward when the ball was passed, so where do you want him to turn to? What a ridiculous thing to say. It was quite clear there was no one to pick out as everyone was setting for a longer pass due to Leicester's closing down.}


16.) 11 Sep 2016 06:41:50
This is not the first time Mignolet has put his defenders in a difficult situation with foolish passes. In fact, he tends to do it several times a game.

Yes - it may be part of team tactics. But the players on the field must have game intelligence. Otherwise tactics are useless. Mignolet lacks that.


17.) 11 Sep 2016 07:15:16
Fact is the goal was against the rules and shouldn't have stood, so it's only the officials fault.

{Ed001's Note - no, you still have to look at what went wrong and look to fix it from your part, so that you do not have to rely on officials. Shanks made a big thing of that, after the officials cheated us versus Inter Milan. He wanted the players to do it all themselves, so that the officials would not be able to cheat us ever again.}


18.) 11 Sep 2016 08:05:05
I would also add that the weight of the pass from migs was poor which gave Lucas less time.


19.) 11 Sep 2016 09:10:14
Why have a pop at Gino this game? It was hardly vintage but his assist, followed minutes later by tracking back the entire length of the field for an excellent last ditch tackle on Marhez, showed what he was about and what he will be able to do when he's fully integrated.


20.) 11 Sep 2016 09:26:26
Wow - impressed Ed001, who can forget that dark night for a refereeing in May 1965. A week after my best ever Anfield European night on May 5th ( bunked off school in the afternoon to be there in plenty of time ) Reuben Bennett did an article in the papers some years later with alleged proof that the referee benefited financially for his performance in that game.

{Ed001's Note - I wasn't born, it was just something I was told about by a few of the people involved in it. Shanks mentioned it a number of times, he used it to push on the players sometimes.}


21.) 11 Sep 2016 12:47:05
All Lucas had to do if he was under too much pressure was step inside the box to control the ball. Migs was well within his right to pass him that ball. I don't rate migs I want him out the side asap but this goal was entirely lucas fault. A composed center back would have just stepped inside the box and there would have been a retake. Pressure from the pass is a nonsense argument because there was none. It was a good pass to a good player who had plenty of time to decide what to do unfortunatly he wanted 3/ 4 touches and then lost his own composure. For an example of jon stones would've received the same pass with the same pressure the same ending wouldn't of happened.

{Ed001's Note - oh don't talk crap. If he had stepped inside he would have risked a ref giving them an indirect free kick, as some refs do that. You clearly are blind, everyone made to go forward and Migs rushed a pass that he should have taken his time on. Your argument is the nonsense one.}


22.) 11 Sep 2016 13:45:11
Not to mention that last season Stones made more errors leading to goals with the ball at his feet than any other defender last year.


23.) 11 Sep 2016 15:50:45
To be fair it was 6 of one half a dozen of the other. Mignolet stupid to pass to him and then Lucas messed up. However how many brain farts has Lucas made that has directly cost us a goal? Not many that I can remember. I think one uncostly mistake can be overlooked. Mignolet on the other hand.


24.) 11 Sep 2016 16:53:06
I'm watching a replay now, and Ed001's assessment is far from accurate. Lucas was making starting to make a run forward- he was stationary and facing Mignolet when the pass was made. All of the other defenders, rather than making runs forward, were facing Mignolet. The nearest player to Lucas, who was prepared for the pass and makes a move towards the ball when the pass was made, was Okazaki who was c. 15 yards away. The only other Leicester player within 15 yards of the Liverpool box was Vardy, and Milner was open for a pass from Lucas and facing him. Lucas took a heavy touch while facing the ball and moving slightly towards it, then panicked. The incident was entirely his fault, and to blame Mignolet is entirely unfair. Ed001 said to watch it again; I have repeatedly and can see that his version of events in inaccurate.

{Ed001's Note - bollox. No one was set for passes, no one. Mignolet had not played a quick ball out once before that, so no one was ready, they were all looking to draw Leicester out, then run forward. Lucas took a terrible touch, correct, but Mignolet was also to blame for playing the pass. Why was he rushing when we were on top and dominating? That is completely against the instructions that Klopp has constantly banged on about controlling the game when on top.}


25.) 11 Sep 2016 21:30:34
I really think you need to watch it again. Lucas was clearly ready for the pass, he saw it coming and anticipated his reception of it. He just got that bit wrong. It was a simple mistake. I'm watching it again right now. I would urge every other poster who blames Mignolet to do so too. This was not a blasted pass, it was gentle and getting slower as it approached Lucas. And Okazaki was actually at least 18 yards away at that point. The blame is entirely on Lucas, and I genuinely cannot understand why you are so vehemently defending your position, when it is so obviously wrong.

{Ed001's Note - well clearly you are blind if you can't see the problem with it. You have completely failed to understand my point. So why waste my time talking to you as you haven't clue what I have said, it obviously went right over your head because you are too busy looking to absolve Migs of any blame. You are too blind to even realise you are pointing out the biggest error he made - gently rolling it so slowly that it meant Lucas was getting closed down by the time the ball reached him. Pointless this discussion, you have missed the point repeatedly, no one is even trying to say Lucas is not to blame or that he didn't make a mistake. The point is he should never have had the ball in the bloody first place. I give up as it is such a bloody simple point yet it completely escapes you.}


26.) 11 Sep 2016 22:34:05
It amazes me that after such a great result and a fine performance, the main talking point on everyone's mind is the oppositions goal! Which turned out to not be very costly at all. Can't we just enjoy a great performance that on a even better day could have seen us net at least 3 more goals? And let the coaching staff concentrate on the mistake which I'm sure they will.


27.) 11 Sep 2016 22:46:32
Funken, that may be true that Lucas looked like he had time to receive the ball but if you look at it again. Ed may be right here. On this thread, I blamed Lucas for the goal but Ed said it was a mistake first off by Mingo so I watched the play overseas and over again. Mingo places the ball at the corner of the six yard box and then doesn't even survey the pitch to see how LC set up to press. If he did, he would have seen that Okazaki was between Lucas and Hendo about ten yards out because as a striker, that is how you position yourself to make the other team go long instead of passing out of the back. Any good GK would have surveyed the pitch first before deciding to pass out or go long but Mingo doesn't do that. He just places the ball down and passes to Lucas without looking. Lucas already sees Okazaki before the pass hence, doesn't expect it to come. It comes and Okazaki is already on top of Lucas. He panics and the rest is history. I see where you are coming from and where Ed is coming from hence, it was a double mistake. We move on.


28.) 12 Sep 2016 00:29:28
Well I've just watched it, again, and personally feel it was all Lucas. He 'appeared' ready for the ball, and controlled it just fine, had ample time to simply play it back to Migs if needed however took his eye off the ball, went to drag it back and maybe use Milner or Wijnaldum who was coming short but just ended up touching it forward, which then resulted in his panic toe poke across the goal.

True Migs rushed into passing it to Lucas when it wasn't neccessary at all, but that's where his blame ends as far as I'm concerned. I can only assume he wanted to keep possession short and simple as opposed to a long goal kick and losing the ball. Just my 2cents.


29.) 12 Sep 2016 02:30:03
Migs made a really bad decision passing the ball to Lucas. Lucas made a mess out of it but Migs set it up.


30.) 12 Sep 2016 04:45:27
Wow, someone's getting ed001 riled up! 😂😂😂.


31.) 12 Sep 2016 12:21:19
Come on Ed, i think we all know what Lucas should have done.
With the underweighted pass from Mig he should have shimmied left but cut back inside towards his own goal, then with Vardy changing direction to close him down nut megged him running past him to collect the ball, now with the other 8 Leicester players charging him in a wall unit he should delicately chip the ball over them diving through Huths legs to get up and dribble the ball to what would be an open goal as Kaspers laid on the floor somewhere near the half way line. Now ofc his finish should be a 35 yard screamer that comes off the underside of the crossbar.

Now let's also not forget Ilori would have done that.


32.) 12 Sep 2016 13:51:53
It was Lucas fault. He's a professional footballer, that was Sunday league. I'm sure he's been under more pressure than that and not lost it. Okazaki wasn't even on top of him.


33.) 12 Sep 2016 19:35:00
Should of put it out for a corner instead of toe pokin to Vardy.


34.) 12 Sep 2016 23:57:02
OMG Migs getting the blame for this, have this match recorded and have watched this incident loads of times, all the blame is on Lucas, without a doubt completely his fault, had all the time in the world. ED001 you are wrong, watch it again without your biasness, no doubt you will insult me now and tell me i know nothing about football. I have been involved in football of all levels for a long time and completely the fault lies with Lucas. Not a CB so it somewhat explains his mistake but to blame Mingolet. Sad really.

{Ed007's Note - Cool mate, so what Champions League clubs or international teams have you been involved in? You must have some cracking stories from through the years.}


35.) 13 Sep 2016 01:49:30
By inference i blame the referee for blowing whistle to start game, bcos had he not blow the whistle, there will not be chain of events that cause mig to pass the ball to Lucas.

{Ed007's - If only John Houlding hadn't took the huff....


36.) 13 Sep 2016 03:28:44
I love the fact that even though we won the match scoring 4 goals that could have been 5-6 . We are still on here moaning about something that in the end had no effect on the result .
I'm sitting here a happy fan enjoying a great result against last years champions .
Bring on Chelsea.


37.) 13 Sep 2016 11:30:35
Agree pscicosis, great result and if we can beat Chelsea then our start will suddenly look very food indeed. Lucas makes the team better IMHO.


 

 

17 Jul 2016 22:57:43
Reading in a few different places that we want to sign Wijnaldum from Newcastle for £20 million yet we would not pay i think £13 million for Zieninski. It really does not make sense to me.


1.) 17 Jul 2016 23:30:27
Again, how hard is it to understand? We bid what we bid for zielinski because that's what we thought he was worth, we're not gunna bid more than our valuation for a player. If another player we are looking at, has a higher valuation then maybe we will be happy to bid more.


2.) 17 Jul 2016 23:54:06
Well I don't think zielinski is worth the price udinese were asking for after we tapped him up and honestly, he's not good enough so you shouldn't really be upset about that. On the other hand, someone who I was impressed with at times in GW again does not cost £20m but these are all inflated prices. Really the problem here isn't the price tags it's the type of player we are going for. I understand klopp would prefer a more attacking central midfielder but is that what GW is? I thought he was more of a forward and if so where the hell would he fit into our squad and to replace whom. Surely that's the end of Milner, lallana and markovic. Not sure why we don't just keep markovic.

If GW is a more central midfielder, I would say, from watching him, he is not what we need right now as we are overstocked on this type of player. We need a more solid, tactically sound midfield so I think most of us where hoping for a defensive minded midfielder. I just don't understand this personally even though I think GW is a decent player.


3.) 18 Jul 2016 00:53:44
Bcos Klopp now has Branaggan who can play deeplying playmake, similar to Zielinski but raw. So dats why not giving in to Udinese.


4.) 18 Jul 2016 02:08:18
My previous point exactly. we did not increase our bid for Zielinski because we had a better target lined up. Wijnaldum is a top player and will improve the team.


5.) 18 Jul 2016 08:18:30
Wijnaldum is certainly not a top midfielder, he's anything but. Did you see a procession of top clubs scrambling to sign him after relegation or when he was at PSV? No. And there's a reason for that. He's a very poor player with a shocking attitude.


6.) 18 Jul 2016 08:39:10
A club that got relagated to the championship want him to leave, if he was any good at all, why would they do that?


7.) 18 Jul 2016 09:02:36
It makes a change for us to be linked with a player AFTER Spurs have been linked. It's become something of a pattern that we are linked with players who then join Spurs. No thanks on this one though, he's not Liverpool quality and far from an improvement on that which we already have.


8.) 18 Jul 2016 14:04:10
Power, if Winaldum is such a top player, why was he dropped for being lazy during a relegation scrap by Newcastle? Let that sink in for a moment. I suggest you read Ed01`s evaluation of him or better yet, watch the games yourself. He`s the same as Sissoko. Good on TV and stats. The fact is that he, like Sissoko, are poor, lazy players who have nothing to add to our team and aren`t better than those we already have at the club including the academy. Ed02 has already said the rumor is not true and that why would Klopp sign a player who possesses the very qualities or lack thereof, he hates in a player which is laziness, poor skill and very little consistency? It`s all paper talk and to me, agents are just trying to get interest for him as well as Sissoko as Newcastle desperately want rid.

Well match day is here, if Utd sit back they will be very hard to break down. If they attack we will exploit the space and that will play into our hands. It's not the clear cut Utd win the pundits are predicting. I am sure Klopp has a plan in place for this game.


1.) 15 Jan 2017 12:12:48
On current form they have an upper hand.

Our play has been below average in last three games and if we play with the same green away kit it is omnious sign for defeat.

My hopes are on players returning from injury to make a game of it and some quick brilliance from Danny boy to come from bench and score.

Cheers


2.) 15 Jan 2017 13:03:44
I really think they'll throw the kitchen sink at us from the off, try to get an early goal, then park up and try to hit us on the break as we push forward.


3.) 15 Jan 2017 13:58:35
Hope they do😄


4.) 15 Jan 2017 13:58:35
Hope they do😄


 

 

14 Jan 2017 10:58:48
Well between the papers and various sports media outlets every pundit is convinced we are going to lose easily tomorrow. I don't mind being the underdogs that is fine. I certainly do not think we will be as bad as Wednesday night. We certainly have not become a bad team over night. I hope we shove it back down these " PUNDITS " necks.


1.) 14 Jan 2017 11:50:30
I have been watching all the previews and reading all the articles about the match and united are heavy favourites. it's almost surprising how we are being brushed aside as having next to no chance, I knew they where favourites due to momentum but united are being touted as 'the last wonder of the world'. Im not overly confident about the game but if I was a player and not a fan I'd see that as big motivation. I'd almost be so p***** off at being so undervalued compared to united that I wouldn't have nerves going into the game, I'd just want to get out there and put Herrera on his ass and just bully him and pogba. The problem is, we have a psychological issue with united similar to the one Everton have with us. Even though we should beat them we rarely do, especially at old Trafford. This is something that I've never quite understood, and has made me question the bottle that the players have sometimes. We talk about Klopp firing a rocket up their asses when it's needed but why does it have to be that way for a game against united, I hope we start sharp straight away, clinical passing and clinical shooting is the only way I see us beating united because possession will be up for grabs and united will constantly be hitting on the counter. Our pressure and intensity needs to be on point and if it's not I feel like united will get the early lead and see us out. I feel like the first half will determine the winner and we have been slow starters so it better not be the case this time.

I refrained from commenting about the game and just kept myself to myself with all things concerned so I'll continue to do so, but this is make or break. Are we title challengers or are be battling for top 4.


2.) 14 Jan 2017 12:19:45
I'm not surprised, we were defensive shambles agents Southampton.


3.) 14 Jan 2017 12:28:29
You "should beat us". Really? Whys that


4.) 14 Jan 2017 13:00:13
What do you want a Liverpool supporter to say stand utd, " we are going to beaten " get a grip. It's called supporting your team.

United are at home, unbeaten in 11 and won their last 9, spent a fortune in the Summer while Liverpool are having a bit of a sticky patch. Why should United not win?


6.) 14 Jan 2017 13:12:27
Amazing how in October United were bemoaning the press were treating us as the 8th wonder if the world and now going into tomorrow we are outsiders.
Granted, we haven't looked as good of late but united, like Chelsea, have had a run where they have had some luck and either come up against weaker teams. Think united have only had Spurs as a team of note in their PL run of wins and, on the day, Spurs were massively disappointing.
I am torn over who I want starting tomorrow - I kind of want Origi as, with Mane out, he is the only other player with genuine pace meaning United can't just go out and play a high line. On the flip side, I want Firmino down the middle. Anyone else for Origi on the right side of the 3 up top?


7.) 14 Jan 2017 13:14:50
My only prediction for tomorrow is for Herrera to fall over in the box tomorrow, maybe more than once. Oh and to only get yellow carded with five mins to go despite having persistently fouled his way through the game. Do get the impression I dislike him, as a player? 😉

{Ed004's Note - Bit of a hypocritical comment since you've had Lucas doing it for years...}


8.) 14 Jan 2017 13:19:43
There is a good chance Klopp will field 4-3-3 to counter United's 3 men midfield. Coutinho - Firmino - Lallana up top.


9.) 14 Jan 2017 19:04:31
Ed004, not really mate - Lucas last got into the opponents box in 2011.

{Ed004's Note - More making reference to the dozens of fouls he can make each game}


10.) 14 Jan 2017 21:02:04
I'm confused as to why a shift in formation would be required just because Mane is at AFCON. Assuming Hendo is back, the midfield 3 of him, Adam and Gini has worked well all season. Lallana hasn't looked nearly as good playing in a front 3, and Bobby is much less effective on the wing, so why put him there so Origi or Sturridge can play in the middle? I'd sooner disrupt the 433 as little as possible and replace mane with Ojo or Origi. Sturridge should be kept on the bench and used for impact because his pressing just isn't up to scratch. Losing one player won't damage our chances too much, but p*ssing about with the formation may do.

Ander Hererra 3 yellow cards, Jordan Henderson 6 yellow cards. Yep, Hererra will foul his way through the game. Laughable


13.) 14 Jan 2017 23:53:34
Not sure how reliable they are but 'whoscored' have Henderson averaging 1.2 fouls per match this season, yet Herrera is averaging 1.5. With Henderson having double the yellow cards was my original, albeit flippant, comment that wide of the mark?


14.) 15 Jan 2017 14:50:19
Stand, we should beat you because we are better than you.

Can anyone tell me how many season ticket holder's roughly at Anfield. I read 25,000 it doesn't seem like a large number.


1.) 13 Jan 2017 10:21:06
Sounds too high to me


2.) 13 Jan 2017 12:24:57
LFC IN 2016,had a 55% allocation for season ticket holders, the stadium expansion led to 2000 more being released. just under 27,000 in total


3.) 13 Jan 2017 16:33:02
high? i can't believe its that low we have 53,000 season ticket holders at celtic, if we ever got into the epl we would need to increase our capicity to 80,000.


4.) 13 Jan 2017 17:19:49
For the record, the waiting list was cut to 15,000 after reaching 22,000.The club optionally only allows that many season tickets.


 

 

12 Jan 2017 09:15:26
Eds can you see Liverpool being as bad on Sunday as they were last night? Have they lost the spirit and fight that was so evident before Christmas ?

{Ed002's Note - Sadly my crystal ball is in for a polish today Dan.}


1.) 12 Jan 2017 09:35:14
I can say yes because United will defend deep and look to hit on the break.


2.) 12 Jan 2017 09:58:21
If Matip doesn't play, I think they will try and exploit Klavans weakness and attack with pace from the off. Try and get an early goal then as you say ( Matip ) defend deep and hot us on the break.

If they watched the performance last night, they'll be very confident. Let's hope Hendo and Matip are ready to play.


3.) 12 Jan 2017 11:44:00
Without hendo, we're most likely dropping points with the best we can hope for being a draw. Without matip it might be a shambles or it might be a dominant defensive performance from klavan and lovren, it's been that sort of trend with them. I could be well of the mark and I hope I am. I hope we do take risks and play coutinho, matip and Henderson if they can play.


4.) 12 Jan 2017 14:11:48
We have to go there with the objective of winning, period. To do that, we have to play all our guys and go for it. All else fails, get a point and on to Swansea where we can try to pick up three points at Anfield.


 

 

29 Dec 2016 11:28:47
I don't see why some people think we have to get a player in to replace Mane. If we did (NO1) He would have to be signed rapidly. (NO2) He would have to get used to the system of play. (NO3)By the time this is done Mane will be back. So i think one of the youngsters should get a chance until then.


1.) 29 Dec 2016 11:56:59
I think we should possibly look for only 1 signing which would be a centreback. Ilori clearly isn't fancied, Gomez is young and CB's don't often establish themselves at his age. Sakho is gone, Klavan and Lovren don't fill me with confidence. Eventually I'd like to see another partner for matip than those 2. with Gomez waiting and learning.
At the moment Sule and Brooks, seem to be who we are linked with, though I can't say I've really seen either play. If we are to make a decent go of this season, I'd like to see us strengthen in the CB department and we can really push.


2.) 29 Dec 2016 12:27:39
So you expect mané to play a full season without the need of a rest or having a niggle here and there? Don't u think having another top player in his position will provide added competition for a place in the squad. Don't u think if mané is having an off day, we can bring in a very good plan B to change the game? The youngsters should be given a chance but they cannot be thrown in the deep end straight away. Only time will tell whether they will turn into excellent players.


3.) 29 Dec 2016 13:30:53
I don't think the club would sign someone for 4 weeks or 6 months. This will be in consideration for the CL campaign next season.


4.) 29 Dec 2016 13:45:24
So by your reckoning then we should buy someone to give Henderson, Clyne etc etc a rest. If someone needs a rest we have young player's that can step in. I for one would like to see Ojo get a shot when Mane is gone.


5.) 29 Dec 2016 14:43:43
Equally important is a top goalkeeper who would earn 10-15 points a year.

All our rivals are way better equipped in this department.

A top keeper would settle the defence and boost confidence throughout the team.
Klarius has great potential but he's not ready yet
Migs has upped his game since karius was signed but even at his best he falls way short of the standard set by Lloris or Cortois even
Petr czech is still a finer keeper.


6.) 29 Dec 2016 15:27:54
I personally don't think mignolet has upped his game atall. He's made 1 decent save in 3 or 4 games since he's been back. Wasn't tested in 2 of them and flapped at a header a decent keeper would of stopped. Stick with him for now but look to bring karius back in towards later 3rd of the season if he is costing us points. Might as well bring a young gk through who will cost us a few points but gain experience we will keep rather than someone wwho will do the same but we r probably getting rid of in the summer.


7.) 29 Dec 2016 17:52:35
@parstheball

You think we should bring through a different keeper who you acknlwdge will drop us points?

We're pushing for a league title. We are not in any position to throw away any points. Ridiculous!


8.) 29 Dec 2016 17:55:22
Parstheball is spot on. Dermot, and which top GK would that be? DDG, Navas, Lloris, Coutois, Oblak? Cech? The same guy who got beat at his near post vs City who to me, is slowly losing it? And please, do not mention Hart? You say Karius has potential which I agree with BUT is not ready yet so again, what should we do with him? Bring in a top GK (whoever that is cos they`re all obviously taken) and then push his development down the toilet? How will he fulfill his potential if he doesn`t get to play and learn?

And comparing him to established GK`s like Lloris (capt. of France) and Courtois (La liga winner and no.1 choice for Belgium) is dishonest as they are more experienced than him.

As for Migs, he`s still the same. His kicking is still crap and though it was a collection of mistakes that led to the goal for Stoke, his positioning was suspect hence, he got beaten at his near post which goes against the fundamentals of any GK, period.

Vs Everton and Boro, might as well have put Manninger in there as the defence shielded him well and had next to nothing to do. So where exactly has he upped his game? If you think Klopp is going to bail on Karius then you are joking. He will give him every opportunity to prove himself cos he already knows Migs is not the answer. If he were, Karius wouldn`t be here. just saying.

Joe hart.


10.) 29 Dec 2016 21:00:18
I think you are puzzled by what i said puzzled red. What I mean is. At the moment, both karius and mignolet are neither setting the world alight. All I'm saying is, play karius instead of mignolet as both will probably cost us a few points but we will end up keeping karius, mignolets future at lfc will probably be over in the summer. Give karius some experience. It won't hurt In my opinion.


11.) 30 Dec 2016 14:52:04
Hi Hamilton.

I was thinking along the lines of Pickford at Sunderland.

He seems to have reached a high premier league standard and has been player of the season so far in a poor Sunderland side.

I know he's just been injured but he looks top class and is young too.

I cannot understand some people's obsession with Hart. Karius will be no 1 when fit Klopp bought him for a reason to suit the way his teams play.

Is this a wind up. He has improved nearly every player from the Rodgers era bar Moreno. Coutinho, Henderson, Lallana, Lovern, Origi have all improved. Please explain what box Klopp is in because if your implying Klopp is defensive minded it must be you that has been living in a box for the last 15 months.

He did what 90% of teams have done against us. He played ultra defensive and hoped for a result. Which he got. Southamptons goal was because of Klavans mistake and Clynes ball watching it certainly was not down to a moment of brilliance from Redmond. (even though it was a good finish) There was no tactical masterclass from Puel, you are just trying to be sensationalist as usual.
