Any legs in the Handanovic to Liverpool rumours Eds?


{Ed002's Note - I don't know but if Mignolet were to leave in the summer and Handanovic were happy to be a back up to Karius perhaps. It would obviously mean the end for Ward if that happened.}



31 Aug 2015 16:47:21
Press reports linking us with Yarmolenko and/or Blaszczykowski again Eds - anything in these rumours?

Also talk of a RM bid for Moreno - any truth in that? I guess the player wouldn't turn that down!


{Ed001's Note - nothing as far as I am aware in any of those. Madrid are busy trying to sort out De Gea and running out of time fast.}



08 Jan 2015 15:42:16
Telegraph reckon Suso to AC Milan not happening - perhaps there is a chance for him yet at Anfield.


1.) 08 Jan 2015 21:26:58
Its a done deal mate .

2.) 09 Jan 2015 14:27:23
I think the bridges between Liverpool and Suso are pretty much burned. One of the Eds said he was trying to leave last season too.

I don't blame the guy to be honest. Especially when the likes of Balotelli who has done absolutely nothing come in and get given a spot in the starting 11 or bench.

I see Roma's owner has been whining about a couple of penalty decisions they didn't get - TBH I thought the ones they actually did get over the two games were poor decisions anyway, bet he wasn't moaning about those.


1.) 03 May 2018 08:06:51
Changes nothing he can moan all the like. they scored one from offside to oust Barcelona to begin with. plus it was never a penalty yesterday.
All these things balance out. and if i remember correctly it was Monchi who was against VAR when at sevilla, a few years ago.
Look at how bayern took it- they had a stone cold penalty denied. This is all part of the game and if you can't take it, better keep shut in your mums closet.

{Ed001's Note - Pallotta is just a whining little turd. A rich boy who thinks he deserves to have it all his own way because he has money. Since buying Roma all he has done is whine about everything, unless he gets what he wants he whines. He really is annoying and childish. A spoilt little brat.}

2.) 03 May 2018 09:24:34
The 2 pens Roma got were shocking in my opinion. Roma have nothing to moan about. They were lucky the got away with 5-2 in the first leg. Liverpool were far the best team. Sour grapes from their owner.

3.) 03 May 2018 12:46:30
And they can't even get it right on VAR from what I have seen. I know that Sepp Blatter had his faults but I agree with his sentiment that the game in the stadium should reflect the game played by amateurs in the parks. It is what makes the game what it is.



29 Apr 2018 08:03:59
Eds, just reading that one of our old boys - Luis Alberto - has been linked with a move to Barcelona to replace Iniesta. Did he get that good after leaving us? If so, how did we fail to notice this?


{Ed001's Note - he is the only player with double figures in assists and goals in Serie A this season. He was very highly rated when he joined us, it was just that we failed to get the best from him.}

1.) 29 Apr 2018 08:24:08
Holy C**p! Surprised to see Alberto doing this well.
If Barcelona sign the guy and he proves a worthy replacement for Iniesta, we will be kicking ourselves on this one, even more than Suso. Brendan really screwed up Aspas and Alberto for us.

2.) 29 Apr 2018 08:25:45
Great for him, Ed. He reminds me of Aspas. He did not fully get his chance with us even tho, I always liked him when at Celta. Now he has gone back to Celta, has been scoring goals for fun since he got back (Barca are his biggest victims) and is near nailed on for Russia in the summer. Goes to show that a good player will always shine if given a full go in the team.

3.) 29 Apr 2018 08:30:48
Hopefully our coaching staff have improved since then Ed’s, seems a shame that we missed out on seeing what the lad could do for us.

{Ed001's Note - they do seem a lot better, but there will always be players who just do not fit here and go on and have success elsewhere.}

4.) 29 Apr 2018 08:44:57
I thought Coutinho was Iniesta's replacement 🙈. This kind of shows how his first few months over there are going. I wonder if he regrets leaving yet.

5.) 29 Apr 2018 09:28:40
I thought the same Jayden. I'd love to know his thoughts on how we've done since he left lol hilarious. The grass isn't always greener on the other side, I think Coutinho is finding that out right about now.

6.) 29 Apr 2018 10:07:02
Coutinho seemed quite happy to post photos on his Instagram with the La Liga league trophy (which he contributed very little towards winning) . Plus if we should win the CL he would probably get a medal there too.

7.) 29 Apr 2018 10:39:26
I remember him being talked of as another Coutinho when we signed him.
He didn’t get/ earn his chance but the potential was obviously there. However, sometimes players just don’t suit our league and the “rough and tumble”.

8.) 29 Apr 2018 10:53:24
Don't think pipco will regret leaving Liverpool he always wanted Barcelona from a child he won't be missing our weather too.

9.) 29 Apr 2018 11:10:06
When we signed him from Barcelona b he was actually dubbed the new ineasta but because of his size Brendan Brendaned him into the alonso type player but since going to Lazio he’s back playing an attacking midfield role and guess what? He’s back to being the player we bought.

10.) 29 Apr 2018 11:44:42
I remember when we scored 5 at White Hart Lane. Alberto played a lovely first-time ball through for Suarez to lob the keeper.

I know that every player we sign can’t make it but some never get a chance and others get picked week after week when they continue to make errors and cause goals.

Alberto, Aspas and Suso are the ones mentioned. I think the same will happen with Harry Wilson too.

11.) 29 Apr 2018 12:09:40
Aspas was dreadful. I can't believe how short some people's memories are, he was absolutely shocking.

12.) 29 Apr 2018 13:08:06
Talking of Aspas, I read an article about him the other day and apparently he’s a right little s**t, has been since youth level. I also heard that during his time here the only word he learned was ‘yes’. So although Brendan is liable for the majority of his Brendan-ing, I don’t think the failure to the get the best out of Aspas is solely his fault.

13.) 29 Apr 2018 13:08:41
Not every player does well when they change clubs. Bergkamp was dreadful at Inter Milan. The environment, style of play etc matters.
I for one don't really get bothered when players leave the club and shine elsewhere. I want every player to reach their potential. With or without Liverpool.

14.) 29 Apr 2018 16:19:28
I think the only one I'm gutted about getting away is Suso, he had it, we knew he had it, he was capable of top level football with us, yet didn't get his chances and I find it a real shame but I'm happy for him that he's now found his feet.

Aspas just wasn't good enough for us, I was chuft to see the back of him to be honest.

Alberto, it just didn't work out, it happens. I'll be honest though I still don't rate him massively, I mean I know he's scoring goals AND assisting them so the stats look good and all but almost everytime I've seen him play he's looked lazy to me and looked like one of those players who tend to play good when they feel like it? maybe I'm wrong I'm just going on what I've seen which isn't tons to be fair to the lad but he's not wow'd me much, if at all.

For him to be even mentioned in the same sentence as Iniesta's replacement is incredible imo, nobody can replace Iniesta lol Just like nobody can replace Silva at City, he goes, they lose a hell of a lot of quality in one player, same goes for Liverpool with Firmino, these players are irreplaceable.



16 Jan 2018 19:28:30
Eds, I know we don't talk money but what's the logic behind clubs spending vast sums of cash in January on players who can be signed for free in the summer? I'm thinking Sanchez obviously given the numbers being spouted in the press.


{Ed002's Note - It gives MU an edge over MC.}



06 Jan 2018 12:08:24
Eds what are the options open to a ref if he hears racist abuse? Can he reprimand a player immediately ie with a red card or does any action have to be taken retrospectively?

If - as is being reported today - Firmino racially abused Holgate then the ref must have heard it given where he was stood at the time. He should have been able to send Firmino off for me if it's true - if the ref can't do that then there needs to be a rule change if the FA are serious about stamping it out.

Having seen it on the tellybox I can definitely see the word 'Puta' which isn't necessarily racist but I don' know if anything happened off camera.


{Ed001's Note - he can show a red and he would include it in his report, which would mean further action could be taken by the FA. The fact he has taken no action against Firmino, even after consultation with the 4th official and hearing from Holgate, suggests he has heard nothing of that kind. Everton could still file a complaint against Firmino if they choose to, even if the ref does not act, as no cards were shown.}

1.) 06 Jan 2018 14:28:36
Presumably it was caught on the ref’s head mic? And presumably a recording of this is kept for investigations of this kind. So should be very easy to assess.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 15:09:11
Ed01, I agree with your assessment. Everton can file a complaint as that is their right. However, the ref was on top of the situation nd was the first to stop Firmino from knocking the block out of Colgate and since Firmino swore at Colgate one foot from the ref, he was in good position to hear the whole thing. Now, I don't know if something else was said after the fact BUT we shall see. IMO, the ref heard nothing and did not send Bobbie off, this will be a "he said-he said" and nothing more.

{Ed001's Note - he was almost leaning over the ref as he shouted so I don't understand how anyone can think the ref would not have heard anything untoward.}

3.) 06 Jan 2018 15:53:49
Can Holgate be retrospectively punished for the shove? Or because the red saw it and chose not to card him, is this out of the FAs hands?



23 Dec 2017 09:53:13
Eds, with Mignolet having another howler last night to add to his glowing history do you know if the club are actively looking for new keepers at the minute?

TBH I'd like to see Karius given another run as he's looked OK in the CL games, however I was wondering if we might be in the market for someone else.


1.) 23 Dec 2017 10:48:12
Exactly, I'd rather us give Karius a chance, he's done really well this season, why some think we need to go out and buy a new GK is beyond me, all we need to do is drop Migs and give Karius a go, if he does terrible the rest of the season then fair enough in the summer go for a new GK but I think the lad will do well. I fear if he doesn't get his 1st spot he may want to leave and that'd be a real shame because I think there's something about him, I really think he'd do well with us, we may never know.

2.) 23 Dec 2017 11:08:07
Karius will play in the next game or I'll lose faith in Klopp. It's not a gamble putting Karius in, it's a gamble playing mignolet. Fans would not blame Klopp if Karius made howlers. We would all just be like, okay so we need to get a new gk.

3.) 23 Dec 2017 11:30:08
Yeah true Benny mate, I fully agree with you, we'd respect Klopp a lot more if he dropped Migs. I really like Klopp and have supported him with so much but this is his mistake, if he plays Migs next game it makes no sense and is simply terrible management. Does Migs hold some secret photos of Klopp and using it against him or what lol. ' Play me or these will be released to the public'.

4.) 23 Dec 2017 11:39:14
For me that was Mignolet's worst ever performance for us last night and that takes some doing on his previous performances. I would not bet any money on Karius becoming our no 1 though. Every man and his dog can see it bar Klopp.

5.) 23 Dec 2017 12:01:39
Spot on, boys. Karius got slaughtered and dropped for doing WAY less than Migs has done at LFC and frankly, there is no longer a debate as to who is the better GK. None whatsoever. If Klopp wants to geta whole lot of pressure on himself for no reason and get sacked as a result, he should continue with Migs and see if the fans won't turn on him cos as of then, any mistakes Migs makes will be blamed on Klopp. It's his choice.

6.) 23 Dec 2017 12:19:01
BRover I think you’ve forgotten Karius’s display against Bournemouth and the reaction. It was a clanger that Migs would have been impressed by and the reaction was typical of the premier league.
It was no more exaggerated than any other fan reaction to a mistake. The difference is Karius is not mentally strong enough to take it. That’s a concern.

Red_Ed_88 I think we're more in need of a quality goalie than another midfielder so you could be right. Although I do have my doubts about Alisson, especially for that price.

Now you're just confusing me Ed002. Navas had a fine lgame against Brazil the other week.


{Ed002's Note - Ok, thanks.}

Nor when he almost singlehandedly kept Brazil at bay for 90mins the other day either come to think of it. I'm not for one minute thinking he's the answer long term but I'm still thinking he may be an upgrade. Depends on the price I suppose, if there is actually anything in the link to us.


{Ed002's Note - Courtois won't move to Liverpool.}

Hmmm, I don't seem to recall Navas being that bad the last time I saw Real Madrid play, not in comparison to what was happening at the opposite end of the pitch in that match anyway.

15 Jul 2018 17:19:08
Looking at the list of Navas honours suggests to me that he's a really crap keeper and no better than what we have. oh hang on.

Do any of us really watch Real Madrid to such a degree that we can truly comment on his quality? I'm easy on this one - his experience and record suggests he'd be an upgrade and what small amount I've seen of Alisson didn't impress me for the amount of € involved.

To be honest though, if you want to win stuff, surely 'oop north' is where it's at for football players traditionally? Certainly in my lifetime more trophies have gone to teams outside of glorious London.


{Ed002's Note - Neither of the Manchester clubs have any interest in him.}

I do love how Shaqiri is getting such bad press from our supporters already, I guess they all spent last season watching Stoke?

I'm not entirely convinced but the quoted price is - pains me to say it - is almost a bargain in this day and age.

I'd love to think he could Ed001 but I just think there may be too much focus on him going into the start of the season and each tiny error will just make things even worse for him. I've no idea what the club is doing in terms of looking at new keepers but I'm not sure leaving him in the firing line for 2018/ 19 is for the best. Happy to be proven wrong.

It's unfortunate, but for me it feels like we need to look beyond Karius for a keeper and do it now. Not necessarily because we can get someone significantly better but because any mistakes like this in future will be even more glaringly highlighted and his already shot confidence will just get even worse and the team will suffer as a whole. If he'd had made the initial mistakes in an early round of the League Cup then it wouldn't have been such an issue, instead they were made in front of a worldwide audience in a final for the pinnacle of European football and he will never be allowed to forget that I'm afraid by the British media or by many fans.


{Ed001's Note - or he could rise above it and become stronger for having fought through this issue?}
