Mignolet can say what he wants, Klopp has given him more than enough enough chances prove he is worthy of the no 1 spot.

There can be no sentiment. Mignolet is not good enough and is time for someone else to get a chance to face the firing line.

Klopp's biggest problem is that he is going to struggle to move Mignolet on.


1.) 16 Jan 2018 16:11:14
I don't think he will struggle, still a seasoned PL goalkeeper yes he's not good enough for us but probably good enough to play for anyone outside of the top six teams etc, there is always a need and someone will buy him, let's hope wages are not excessive for the so called "smaller clubs"

2.) 16 Jan 2018 16:25:53
That is exactly the problem. Mignolet is on a very lucrative contract and most clubs will snub him because of that.

So it will either be Liverpool who takes the knock or Mignolet becoming desperate and makes some tough decisions.

He might do well in the Serie A? Many GK's do.

3.) 16 Jan 2018 16:52:47
We might subsidise his wages to allow him leave though my thoughts echo the sentiments of the others in this site. Bit disappointing that he's not staying on to fight for his place. Make no mistake, I'm happier with him no longer playing as no 1 but he's competition for karius and likely to keep him on his toes. Not to mention the possibility of him helping out as the season goes on. Remember towards the end of last year he got his game in order.

4.) 16 Jan 2018 18:52:58
Migs is on 60k a week last I checked so not out of the question for a prem team!

5.) 16 Jan 2018 20:15:07
If you think about it he has international, ECL, EPL and Europa league experience and has played for a top 4 finishing side and is at the prime age for a keeper. He will appeal to clubs. And 60k isn’t huge if that is correct. Not sure why people would be disappointed he isn’t wanting to stay and fight for place, general opinion is he isn’t good enough why would people want to use a slot to keep him?

6.) 16 Jan 2018 21:22:04
I think we be better with Karius and Ward for the rest of the season. May help appease Ward a bit for the messing around he’s had this season. If we can sell Mignolet I say let him go, Klopp has gave him many chances and he’s has not learnt I have no confidence with him in goal.

7.) 16 Jan 2018 21:41:04
At least with karius, he has time to improve and have potential to develop himself. Mignolet who is 30 years old and had 4 years in this club has shown he will not reach in the standards for liverpool to strive to win trophies. His level would be ideal for a midtable club.

8.) 16 Jan 2018 21:51:54
Thing is I don’t recall Mignolet pulling up trees as Sunderland in the first place. Was he best of what we could get then?

9.) 17 Jan 2018 07:20:34
Milan keeper for 39 mil plus migs and bogdan 😂😂🤣 great deal that.

10.) 17 Jan 2018 09:01:51
I honestly struggle to imagine a club discussing their needs and being like 'hmmm we need a goalkeeper, a good shot stopper who can make our defence more solid, who could be possibly available? A-ha! Simon Mignolet! He'll solve our goalkeeping issue'. Seriously with the performances he has delivered what team is going to move for him? I mean is he honestly an upgrade for many of the mid-table clubs being suggested? I seriously doubt it.

11.) 17 Jan 2018 11:00:30
Mignolet was very average at Sunderland at best. Couldn't understand why we blew so much on him. We need to get the next one right. Alisson Becker or Jan Oblak would make an immediate difference.

12.) 17 Jan 2018 12:10:24
Fresst i think i remember he was sunderlands player of the season in the 2012/ 2013 season he looked pretty good that year probably due to them been terrible high volume shots taken against them so his highlight reel might have looked ok well vito mannone was player of the season for them to lol.



07 Jul 2017 22:45:23
It is quite clear that only an obscene amount will bring Keita to Liverpool.

Unless Keita decides to 'piss' on his current club then nothing is going to happen.


1.) 08 Jul 2017 02:25:36
Or He could just put in for a transfer and say he'd be unhappy to stay.

2.) 08 Jul 2017 07:18:07
Ralf Ragnick (RBL's Sporting Direct) has said that not even a 100m bid will make them sell Keita. I don't know what other hint that LFC and some on here need. Move on, pls.

3.) 08 Jul 2017 07:22:35
Yes but the CEO has said that he would not stand in Keitas way if he wanted to leave. This happens every transfer window, it's part of the song and dance. If people want to have faith that he's coming (I'm one of them) then fair play. If he doesn't come he doesn't come but I'm not getting in a negative mind state about it yet. I believe he will come.

4.) 08 Jul 2017 08:36:03
It was the same with Mane to Southampton. They also had a not for sale stance but in the end it was Mane who pulled the plug and forced the move.

Leipzig do not need money, they want to keep Keita because he is a vital player for them. The problem for Keita is that if he burns bridges with Leipzig and Liverpool fail to meet the asking price then Keita ends up losing and Liverpool face another tapping up situation.

Very dangerous game to play for both Keita and Liverpool. This is all going to come down to Keita forcing his way out.

5.) 08 Jul 2017 08:46:58
He is not coming chaps and sounds like if we continue to push then we msy be reported to FIFA on the grounds of more tapping up. I can not beleive our club are still monitoring or what ever it is we are doing, certainly no bid has gone in. Wasting time that could be used chasing other CM's, CB's and LB's.

6.) 08 Jul 2017 08:50:29
I can not believe how bad we are in the transfer market. Between the apology and getting highly inflated prices we are crippled. I know klopp says to be patient but I would of liked players a part of preseason so they better get a move on. We need 3 more players. A good left back. A centre back and a top striker.

We also need to shift sakho, Moreno karius.

It's ok for klopp to say this but he has always been an advocate of early business and getting players settled in preseason so I can not help but feel our current team could be it going into the season.

7.) 08 Jul 2017 09:17:12
Liverpool have mucked it up again with Keita just like they did with VVD.

It has been made known that Keita wants to join Liverpool without Liverpool approaching Leipzig. End game for Liverpool = tapping up.

It will be best for Liverpool to move on from Keita. Obviously the club ain't learning and play with fire, you will get burned.

Why are FSG not putting an end to this matter? They need to show authority as the circus will be on display again at Anfield if this continues. Clear lack of leadership at the club!

It is too late for Liverpool to approach Leipzig now. They should have done it from the start instead of warming up to the player i. e. the same situation as VVD. FIFA will have a field day.

8.) 08 Jul 2017 09:27:29
Stop getting carried away with the tapping up stuff.
Mistakes have been made but the Keita deal is a typical transfer with us wanting the player and willing to pay what is required to secure his services. PSG want Coutinhio doesn't mean they tapping him up by declaring an interest and every player has a price tag these days it's how football is.

Mistakes were made with VVD but if he submits a transfer request then he will leave Southampton.

Everton didn't want to sell lukaku but Chelsea and united both went in with large offers, both bid the same fee but united played the smart move by tipping the agent more.

Keita wants the move so it will happen, no doubt about it.

9.) 08 Jul 2017 09:45:02
Redx what are you talking about? you make me want to bang my head against a wall.

You call this a mistake? no mate a mistake is when you step on somebodys toe, fart when somebodys eating, accidentally pop a kids balloon or send a text to the second misses when it was meant to be the other, not when you tap up a player, how is that a mistake? The club knew exactly what they were doing it's no mistake it's plain and simple stupid! No wonder we're getting carried away with it. Some of us care about the image of Liverpool.

I can't get my head about how some people can defend these actions, it NEVER happened before so why is it ok to do such things now? it's made us look disgraceful. What winds me up either more is comments like ' every club does it' no they dont! - there's a reason why we are the only ones in the news for it.

10.) 08 Jul 2017 09:48:17
Redx, it is laughable that you bring the Lukaku situation into this. Both Chelsea and UTD have made offers for Lukaku. That is the difference. There have been no stories flying about of Lukaku making it known that he wants to join UTD.

Liverpool have not even approached Leipzig yet Keita has spoken to his club about wanting to move to Liverpool.

You clearly do not understand the severity of the situation.

11.) 08 Jul 2017 10:05:22
Stop the daily obsession with Keita it's getting boring!

12.) 08 Jul 2017 10:30:38
I have never seen such an obsession on these pages over such a run of the mill player.

People talk about him like he is a seasoned veteran with 3 CL titles or something. There is absolutely no perspective here. The hype band wagon is fully loaded up with people convinced he is world class.

Maybe he is, or will be. However you only have to look at Leicester for plenty of examples as to why you don't pay big bucks for players after one good season in a mid table team. Chelsea took a £30m risk on Kante which paid off. Yet look at the likes of Kasper, Huth, Morgan, Drinkwater, Mahrez, King, Vardy etc. They were all lauded as top class players. Mahrez was apparently world class and there were talks of £80m bids from Barcelona! The same is currently happening with every Leipzig player. In reality, maybe one or two of their players are actually the meat, and the rest are just bone.

Keita may be the Kante of the team, who knows. But if even Kante was only valued at £30m after a stunning season in the Premier League in which he actually won the title, how is Keita worth double or as some reports suggest, triple that figure after a single season in which he failed to push his team on to the title?

It is clear Keita is a good player. Nobody can say how good though. It is purely speculation, prediction and assumption. He could be a Kante, or he could be a Drinkwater. If the figure was £30m I'd say take the punt. But £70-100m? And some people are trying to justify it? I'm still not buying it.

Then we have the cheek to laugh at United paying mega bucks for Pogba and Lukaku! Oh the irony.

Move on people. There are 1,000s of midfielders in Europe and I'm sure Keita is not the best option. Certainly not at the £100m RBLs chairman just suggested!

13.) 08 Jul 2017 11:41:18
Keita will sign.

Poker need to stop banging on about tapping up. It's is rife in football and other team sports. Part of business I'm afraid. Business isn't all sunshine and rainbows and if you think that it is then the world must be a very rosey place for you to live with your unicorn and pixies.

Even 'legitimate' deals have add ons, agent incentives and gifts. united and Chelsea bid the same figure for lukaku except the agent got a lot more from the united offer. so that's where his client is heading.

We have yet to be punished for any transfer outside our youth system and if it does come it shall be probably as severe as Ashley cole disgrace for Chelsea.

But until then pipe down about it all cos we will be signing Keita. possibly as early as next week. Let's support the lad and the team.

I agree with you MK about the price but this summer most transfers for teams in champions league will be inflated.

{Ed025's Note - tapping up is not "part of business" redx, its cheating and bribery and very wrong so dont try to condone it mate..

14.) 08 Jul 2017 11:50:10
Not condoning it but I'm not naive enough to think it's isolated to lfc.

{Ed002's Note - You are right - it is everybody else's fault. Pitiful.}

15.) 08 Jul 2017 11:59:55
Sorry ed are you saying that only LFC have ever done this or been accused? Liverpool have received no punishment besides the youth. Only prem team I can think of actually being severely punished for it is Chelsea.

Mark my words Keita will sign and no tapping up allegations will be made either so chill out. Boom.

{Ed025's Note - all im saying mate is that you dont want the name of LFC to be tainted any more than it is now and saying that other clubs act in this despicable way does not make it right..

16.) 08 Jul 2017 12:02:22
If it continues we deserve a ban. Maybe getting away with it so frequently hasn't taught us anything?

17.) 08 Jul 2017 12:09:10
Ed025 I agree with you 100% mate but RB have not and will not be making a complaint about Keita pal.

{Ed025's Note - maybe not redx, maybe more luck than judgement but i do agree with you that it should be dropped now as its getting repetitive..i would sooner concentrate on the players your not signing mate.. :)

18.) 08 Jul 2017 12:15:36
Hahah I agree Ed025, we can talk about left backs now!

{Ed002's Note - You need to understand that within European football Liverpool's behavior is worse than any other club. You clearly don't know anything of the Chelsea situation otherwise you would not have made such a stupid remark. You also seem to ignore the fact that a very significant fine was handed out to Everton for tapping up, and indeed that Liverpool are already serving one ban at the moment and have a pending court case that could have further repercussions. The last season the Liverpool were in Europe they faced more charges with UEFA than any other side. On two occasions the owners and the board have had to issue humiliating apologies to try and avoid charges - and one of those has not been withdrawn. Klopp deliberately unsettled players by taking several journalists aside and briefing them in order to deliberately unsettle the four targets he was sure he could sign this summer. Klopp made illegal and direct approaches to three of those players - that is tapping up. The club is not one of the "elite" European sides that meet a couple of times a year and plan the future - they are excluded from that. Certain clubs will not do business with Liverpool because of the way they behave. Liverpool need to sort their act out or they need to accept there are potentially very serious consequences. Right now they are bottom of the pile in European football.}

19.) 08 Jul 2017 12:15:36
Hahah I agree Ed025, we can talk about left backs now!

{Ed025's Note - yeah mate, robertson could be your marquee signing..i hope.. :)

20.) 08 Jul 2017 13:04:49
Hahah ed025 he will arrive I think as cover but who knows he may be the man for the job.

21.) 08 Jul 2017 13:58:37
I just don't know anymore, fans or so called fans are delusional.

22.) 08 Jul 2017 14:01:12
Hi Eds
Why is this kind of under the radar? I know it's done to death on here, but media wise you don't really see anything about tapping up. Obviously the VVD was well reported, but this has been going on for at lot longer. Just interested.

{Ed025's Note - because contrary to what people think on here its not that common mate, tapping up is quite serious and if the press get wind of it they are all over it like a bun on a boloni sandwitch, but most clubs play by the rules as far as im aware janmo..

23.) 08 Jul 2017 14:17:26
Thanks for the swift response. I find it really frustrating that all the hard work we have put in getting back into the champions league, and we could go in under cooked. If you want a player just put a decent bid in. Thanks great site.

{Ed025's Note - no worries mate..

24.) 08 Jul 2017 14:39:36
Teabag why is it delusional to think Keita will be a Liverpool player?

Enough people want to bad mouth Liverpool transfer activity on here yet RB have not and will not be making a complaint and Keita will sign for us.

all parties will be happy with the outcome.

{Ed002's Note - How do you know that they will not make a complaint. They don't wish to sell a player who Liverpool have illegally approached and tapped up. You are an idiot.}

25.) 08 Jul 2017 15:39:54
This is the longest repeat active thread I have seen on here for a while xD

I don’t see why we need to 'tap-up' players. But if we are that desperate and stupid why don’t we do it the smart way like Barca?
By this I mean Neymar has tried to convince Coutinho to join them and spoke to the press about him a lot.
We should get a player to do it then the club can be like "well he really likes him, not our fault" xD.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have already used a player to tap up others on behalf of the club - and not even players he knew. So that is worse.}

26.) 08 Jul 2017 20:21:29
Would be good but costs way too much.

27.) 08 Jul 2017 23:09:28
Every club that Mourinho managed tried to sign Gerrard.

On international duty Lampard and Terry were full time in his ear.

Fergie tried twice to sign him; same crack as above with Scholes and Neville in his ear.

Yap Stam told everyone in his book that Fergie had illegally approached him.
Thats why Fergie offloaded him.

The list could go on and on and not just transfers.

The russians doping scandle.

Look at Platini, Beckenbaur, Quatar The scams at Rangers involving players trusts.

The chairnan at Marseilles i think was jailed .

Even Ed mentioned about a champs league match that was suspicious.

I'd say there are many more as well but football is now big business and companies and clubs will try and do what they can to gain an advantage.

They all are guided by the 11th commandment.

28.) 09 Jul 2017 16:24:11
Thanks for the reply ed002 I didn’t even realize that xD
Seriously how stupid are we? If you are going to tap players up with other players, DO IT RIGHT (or just not at all) ridiculous how stupid we are with transfers

I get that the whole of football is corrupt but most teams/ managers/ players stop and stay low once in the limelight, yet we just carry on doing it like nothing bad will happen -. -.

29.) 10 Jul 2017 11:25:28
I might be miss remembering this but didn't the FA .................




24 Jun 2017 10:42:38
Ed002, any interest from Liverpool for Gaetan Laborde?


{Ed002's Note - I don't know of Liverpool interest in Gaetan Laborde. He is seen as a very average striker in France and there is a different Bordeaux player that Liverool has been keen on. Laborde is far from a regular goalscorer.}

1.) 24 Jun 2017 11:02:18
Is that Malcolm? Do we look like making an offer?

{Ed002's Note - Malcom - there has been a lot of interest from Liverpool.}

2.) 24 Jun 2017 11:03:13
Malcolm I assume Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Malcom.}

3.) 24 Jun 2017 11:04:19
Thanks Ed002.

4.) 24 Jun 2017 11:11:59
"Course you can Malcom! "
See how many oldies remember that line.

{Ed001's Note - I am obviously too young.....}

5.) 24 Jun 2017 12:18:58
Sadly I do . Vicks sinex.

6.) 24 Jun 2017 12:39:28
My dad still says it now! Im sure he would have preferred me to be called Malcolm.

7.) 24 Jun 2017 13:10:44
I don't know much about Malcom, but was he another alternative to the left winger? If so, the interest in this window must surely be gone now with the deal for Salah, am i right?

{Ed002's Note - I wouldn't think that Klopp would keep looking for more players in that position but given he will be playing at least one out of position then maybe. Or maybe he is interested in a striker who struggles for goals?}

8.) 24 Jun 2017 13:13:01
And me too.

9.) 24 Jun 2017 13:40:03
Malcom as left back. LOL.

10.) 24 Jun 2017 19:45:24
Gaetan Laborde? Sounds like the name of a drag act!
I still believe that Bobby Firmino will remain as our preferred striking option, with Sturridge and Solanke as back up/ cup players. I don't think Klopp really needs much more up front, he just needs to sort out the defence.



07 Jun 2017 17:38:08
Ed002, know of anything about the rumour of Sturridge being offered to Newcastle?


{Ed002's Note - I don't but Newcastle have already reached agreement to take a striker on loan.}

1.) 07 Jun 2017 17:52:38
Th Young st from Chelsea I'm I right.

{Ed002's Note - Abraham.}



05 Jun 2017 18:09:57
This could be the season where Liverpool smash the budget into pieces to once and for all get back to the top.

Scary stuff but if that is what the club is planning on doing then us fans will just go with the flow.

I just wonder who the club tends on seeing going as the figures we are about to spend will have to see more than one current players on their way. Let's hope it ain't Coutinho.


1.) 05 Jun 2017 18:40:22
I'm not concerned with the earlier fees at all as the game has somewhat changed, not just for us but the Premier League. The influx of TV money in the premier league, on top of the additional revenue we will provided by the Champions League (if we qualify) has me fairly chill about this issue. Don't think the club would also sign a CB and LW to cope with the departure of PC and we've been surprisingly quiet this summer with regards to 'Number 10' rumours.

2.) 05 Jun 2017 18:50:22
Likely to be: Sakho, Lucas, Stewart, Markovich, Moreno.

Personally also wouldn't be overly surprised by any one (s) of: Sturridge, Ojo, Ward, Ings, Klavan, Gomez, Milner, Coutinho (😩)

3.) 05 Jun 2017 19:09:23
Say with the likely there puzzled would raise £50 million to pay VVDs fee and the saving of wages. I'd like to see Ward, Gomez and Ings loaned out for fitness and experience. I'd like Sturridge and Couts stay. I do like Milner and he should stay as a good squad player but I think he will want 1st team action so may leave.

4.) 05 Jun 2017 19:10:46
I do not believe many understand how club finaces work. We earned massively the previous seasons from TV revenue and still Liverpool ended up making a significant loss in the last financials.

The new training facility will have to see Liverpool making up the numbers financially elsewhere. Increasing the wage bill considerably with the arrivals of VVD and Salah will punish the club.

You do understand that the wage bill makes up majority of Liverpool's spend each season? Therefore adding over £300k a week to our current wage bill 3rd highest in the League will have to see some of the current crop leave.

Transfer fees not the main issue as they get paid over a period, not in one go.

Lallana, Firmino, Mane and Gini can all play number ten. Even Salah.

5.) 05 Jun 2017 18:55:10
Gomez loan
Origi maybe in January
Wilson loan

Should be around £100m. So if all goes to plan we might still get a left back and one other. Happy days.

6.) 05 Jun 2017 19:30:41
Mark, it does not matter what we will be selling players for. The transfer fees we receive will not be paid in one go to us. We are probably some way off before Bournemouth finish paying for Ibe. Just like Suarez was only paid up by Barcelona this past season.

Our wage bill though is something which sees the club accounts with an exit of funds every week. Add VVD and Salah to the current bill, you can be rest assured that there will have to be quite a few exits in the summer, especially if we are planning on adding more players.

Utter domination. Robertson has made LB his position. He is thriving.

Emre Can, let me just say that we are not going to miss him once Keita arrives.

Salah, Salah, Salah. What more can one say.

What a goal from Firmino and how much better is our midfield with Henderson calling the shots?

Karius although he had not much to do has definitely brought calmness to our back 4. Van Dijk just needs the perfect partner.

3 points, clean sheet and 5 goals.

The only way is up!


1.) 17 Mar 2018 19:53:54
Thought hendo was top notch today. Was given a lot of space though! But can't take away from the top performance, Ings looks so sharp.

2.) 17 Mar 2018 20:46:00
I won't miss Can either. Too slow on and off the ball.

I'm a big Hendo fan but he had good and bad patches today. Maybe fitness related?

Still my favourite midfielder of ours.



11 Mar 2018 15:27:50
We have two very big games remaining, Everton and Chelsea, both away. Rest we are up against the relegation battle teams.

We have 4 games left at home so 12 points from those 4 = 72 points total which normally is a good number in order to finish 4th.

We are also 4 points ahead of Chelsea so the pressure is on them, not us to get ahead.

Obviously it is not as simple as we will be playing bottom teams who will be more than happy with one point.

Our form has been really good and we have only lost 4 all season in the EPL. Less than Chelsea, UTD and Spurs.

We just need to take it game by game fellow Reds.

It is not a matter of life to finish 2nd but what we do need to do is finish top 4 which is looking to be the case at this point.


1.) 11 Mar 2018 15:36:29
Right now the next game is the only one that matters - we need to win it and get 3 points, that should be the only focus.

2.) 11 Mar 2018 15:57:14
True Seano that's how I'm looking at it as well. It's going to be a long week though, next Saturday can't come quick enough, I just want to see us win again and more positive vibes.

3.) 11 Mar 2018 16:03:38
Don't look too far ahead Max the next game is all that matters. It is a must win.

4.) 11 Mar 2018 16:21:12
Finishing second means extra TV money which is not bad. Finishing second also means we made progress from last year. It also means you get a runners up medal. Let’s hope our front three doesn’t pick up any injuries or else we are pants!

5.) 11 Mar 2018 16:52:07
Agreed with Harry. It's a shame we won't get second as that would have been vast improvement.
I've just got a hunch that spurs and Chelsea will pip us in the league and we will have Thursday night football.
Let's hope we can go on a run and get 3rd which I guess is an improvement.

6.) 11 Mar 2018 17:13:15
Surely making it to the 1/ 4 finals of the CL is massive progress?

Finishing 2nd or 4th really does not make any difference as 2nd still gets you 2nd. Boo hoo if you get a runners up medal. Means bugger all. Both 2nd and 4th get you automatic qualification into the group stages of the CL.

Qualifying another season for CL surely is progress especially if you look back at years gone by. It is not like anyone had as bang on to win the EPL this season so not sure what some fans were expecting.

7.) 11 Mar 2018 16:57:15
Also we’re currently 7 points ahead of Chelsea 😉. Don’t count any point until it’s been earned!

8.) 11 Mar 2018 18:39:30
Given results this weekend I’d forget about second an concentrate on finishing fourth. Just saying.

9.) 11 Mar 2018 19:56:25
AJH - why don’t you pop over to the Man City page and tell them what position they should be concentrating on

Just saying like 😂.

This CL progression is a lame excuse! We were grouped in the most easiest group in the group stages! It’s not like we beat Real and Barcelona to progres! We were actually poor against the only inform Sevilla! Porto are crap! If you want to measure then we ll see who we play in the QF’s.

11.) 11 Mar 2018 20:54:26
OOps, forgot they played yesterday.

Move along, nothing to see here 🙈😂😂.

12.) 11 Mar 2018 21:56:52
Harry, And how is that LFC's problem that we got an easy CL group? Utd got as easy a group (if not worse) than we did this season and still lost to Basel while parking the bus while we went undefeated, breaking all types of records for goals scored for English teams.
Utd got an easy ride thru out the EL last season and they won and you'll never find me using that as an excuse to berate them and downgrade that achievement. Porto are NOT crap as they are walking their league undefeated and we put 5 past them, fact w/ o breaking a sweat. I know you find ways of downplaying our success by any means necessary BUT you are wrong here.

Making the CL quarters this season under Klopp is indeed progress
judging by the fact that the incompetent BR could not get out of a group containing the mighty Basel and the relentless Ludogurets and to me, 2nd, 3rd or 4th is the same cos CL is CL, end of story esp. with the way City are playing and blowing teams away every week. EXCEPT for a certain team currently coached by Jurgen Klopp.

I still cannot believe some think Clyne is good defensively. As it is, Gomes and TAA both his junior have proven to be more adept playing the RB position.

Clyne is senior, both Gomez and TAA are still learning their trades and are not even fully developed, never mind fully developed as RB's!

I am not trying to cause an eruption, tit for tat or having someone tell me that they have a right to their opinion about Clyne being good defensively.

The qualities Clyne has is his ability to get up and down the pitch as quick as possible.

His passing is absolutely dire, his positional sense is non existent and he cannot cross to save his life.

Clyne is supposed to be a modern day attacking fullback for crying out load.

I think it is fair to say that if any club, that is if their is one, comes calling for Clyne the club nor Klopp will stand in his Clyne's.

Even if Clyne does stay, is he going to asurp TAA's starting place. I want to see Clyne do that LOL.

There can be no sentiment.


1.) 07 Mar 2018 18:27:26
Love that every poster here is an expert on positioning. Is there even a living player whose positioning hasn't been questioned?

2.) 07 Mar 2018 18:29:51
He is enlish, there will be many takers! West Brom paid 10 million for Gibbs!

3.) 07 Mar 2018 18:48:48
Someone needs to tell Clyne that his left leg is allowed to kick the ball.

4.) 07 Mar 2018 18:53:35
Prime example of The Jack Wilshere effect taking place re Clyne, the longer a player is out injured the better he becomes. It's also a damning statement on the quality of full backs around at the minute that Clyne is being seen as anywhere near good. Do people not remember when everybody was asking that TAA/ Gomez be played because Clyne had had an absolute nightmare v Burnley when we lost 2-0? He's only being seen as good defensively because of the Jack Wilshere effect. I fully agree with the OP that TAA and Gomez are already better than Clyne at right back. I'd also add that I think Gomez is better at crossing too. When he's running onto the ball I've seen him put some great crosses in, also put that brilliant cross in v Arsenal for Firmino's goal when we destroyed them.

5.) 07 Mar 2018 19:05:48
Great support of a Liverpool player!

6.) 07 Mar 2018 19:07:59
Great that Clyne has become the whipping boy of our squad. Always has to be one. Least it's not one that will cause any harm to the team now. its probably because he's played so poorly this year. Deserves any abuse he gets.
He's okay. he's not Dani Alves, and he's not terrible. Esp considering the rbs around. When kyle walker is apparently one of the best rbs and costs 50mil. Says a lot about the quality in that position.

And let's calm down with the praise for gomez and taa, very good young players but have a lot of improving to do. Trent especially in defence. Gomez is slightly better and poor enough in attack but he's a cb so that shouldn't matter down the line.

7.) 07 Mar 2018 19:26:37
Where has anyone suggested Clyne is the whipping boy Kloppshop? If anything, Mignolet, Klavan, Matip and Lovren have had far more abuse from fans than Clyne.

8.) 07 Mar 2018 20:01:51
KS, Clyne is not the whipping boy at LFC. He has never been good enuff in the way Klopp wants him to play. How do we know that? Cos in the summer of '16, Klopp was looking to replace him and when he could not, he turned TAA (a midfielder) into a RB and also turned a CB in Gomez into another RB and both are light years ahead of him. So how can you say Clyne is the new whipping boy whereas Klopp wanted rid from jump?

9.) 07 Mar 2018 20:17:30
I don't think anyone has been whipped more than Moreno tbh. A hardworking young lad who works his socks off everytime he plays.

10.) 07 Mar 2018 21:51:22
In all fairness, the demands of a RB have changed dramatically in the last few years.
When Clyne joined it was enough to simply assist going forward and hold the line at the back, now decent full backs are the most important members of the team in an lot of respects. Clyne isn't great but has been alright.
He will go to another club and do a solid job, he's just not what we need.

11.) 07 Mar 2018 22:59:11
Again, I like him, nothing to do with his injury. He is no thrills, solid right back. Had a poor season last year but he put in some good performances especially in past city and Chelsea games.



07 Mar 2018 16:44:38
So 1/ 4 finals of the CL here we come. When last were we able to experience it?

Maybe Klopp did not want the players to go all out as we have the mancs over the weekend and there was no chance Porto were going to hit us for 6 and go away with a clean sheet. Absolutely no way.

Damage control from Porto's part.

Take it game by game. Believe!


1.) 07 Mar 2018 17:21:17
I’d have taken a pedestrian 0-0 draw at start. We did the hard work in the away leg. Professional job well done.

2.) 08 Mar 2018 18:21:56
Nothing too crazy, swapped up the squad most likely for the UTD game. Ended it 0-0 clean sheet and we should be fresh for UTD. Fair play we didn't need to win the game 3-0. The draw saw us through.



04 Mar 2018 18:51:31
I just do not want to even imagine what it feels like being a Gunner or Chelsea fan at the moment.

Come on Liverpool!


1.) 04 Mar 2018 19:15:28
Probably feels the same as us after Rafa left.

2.) 04 Mar 2018 19:38:10
After Rafa left? Huh?

Don't get me wrong, Rafa did some good things for the club but we are in that much of a better situation now compared to Rafa's last season in charge. Club has moved on for the better.

I can imagine that majority of Gunners fans want to see the back of Wenger as he is holding Arsenal back being stubborn and their board seem to be happy for him to stay on as maybe they are not sure on who will be a suitable replacement for Wenger?

Abramovich might have also found himself in a difficult situation chopping and changing managers season in and out. Who does he bring in to replace Conte?

It looks like LFC are finally starting to turn the corner. Onwards!

3.) 04 Mar 2018 19:38:48
Can’t discount Chelsea yet and we still have to play them away.

4.) 04 Mar 2018 19:39:15
Not a bad weekend. Arsenal out of the running totally now for top 4. Chelsea another 3 points further behind, all we need now is for Palace to really dig in, and get something tomorrow. Here's hoping.

5.) 04 Mar 2018 19:54:24
Max I see what you're saying but we've just turned a corner ourselves, and I feel we know exactly what they are going through as we've gone through it for the past half a decade and more, 7th,8th,6th place finishes! Thankfully we're on the up now but let us not forget our rollercoaster journey!

6.) 04 Mar 2018 20:01:25
I suspect that Arsenal fans feel the same way as Everton fans feel right now, the same way Liverpool fans felt towards the end of Rodgers reign. A feeling of resignation and apathy, that nothing is going to change until the current manager goes and someone new comes in.

7.) 04 Mar 2018 20:09:47
No Drogie we can’t discount Chelsea yet but the results have meant that we can even lose against Utd and Chelsea and as long as we win the other 7 against bottom half opposition we are guaranteed top 4. That’s assuming that Chelsea win every game from now until the end of the season which right now they show very little sign of doing.

8.) 04 Mar 2018 20:45:55
Perspective is that we know exactly how Arsenal and Chelsea fans feel right now.

Let us not forget we have endured glimmers of hope and then depths of mediocrity for the past 28 years!

Glass houses and stones.

9.) 04 Mar 2018 21:00:02
I think we're doing much better now. That last season rafa was here things began going downhill. Wasn't that the start of us losing out of the top 4 we were accustomed to?

Arsenal already missed top 4, this sEason is looking no different. Chelsea, still too soon to say, but this season they've fallen from grace, plus if they start losing some of their star players that will hurt them.

Again sounds a lot like us after Rafa left. Those many seasons of 'transition' only now since the 08/ 09 season does it seem like we're coming out of.

The season we came 2nd with Rodgers, I believe was more down to Suarez, and having sterling, and sturridge clicking well. More of a fluke since we really haven't consistently replicated since.

As for Klopp, yes last season we became top 4, but that's still a 'meh'achievement for us (at least it should be) .

Again if we start challenging consistently for the title, and top 4 becomes the norm, then we really have turned the corner, and transitioned out of the 'transition' (like what I did there? )

10.) 04 Mar 2018 21:18:40
The same way we felt for many years?

11.) 04 Mar 2018 21:19:10
Bobbys builders not only would Chelsea have to win all of there games spurs would have to aswell to stop us getting top 4, a don't know the fixtures as am one game at a time person, if Chelsea and spurs still have to play each other or they both have to play Utd and spurs still have to play city then like you say mate a find it very hard to believe that we won't now finish in top 4.
for me we have to be looking at 2nd now and if we win our remaining games then it's in our own hands and a find it hard to believe that we won't finish second and next season we will be challenging and in with a good shout at winning the title and a well over due one I must admit.
Come on the mighty reds YNWA.

12.) 04 Mar 2018 21:35:58
Given the unrest with Conte, if I was Arsenal I’d be seeing if there’s a chance of him moving to Arsenal in the summer.

13.) 04 Mar 2018 22:31:50
Looks good for top 4 but I've learned as a Liverpool fan not to get my hopes up! We are in a good position though but bear in mind Chelsea have 4 home games now.

14.) 04 Mar 2018 23:12:59
The club backed the manager,
New signings have been fantastic,
So much so that the team has kicked on even after losing Couts (for top money)

Times are good at LFC and there is more to come,

Well done to the Kop for singing Rafas song, He's a top manager and still loves LFC.

15.) 05 Mar 2018 03:53:13
We know too well how Arsenal and Chelsea fans would be feeling. far more familiar for LFC fans in recent times.

Good old Chinese takeover of LFC rumours.

FSG will not sell now unless they want to lose all their investment.

My word, what is it with fans who do not understand that it was Coutinho who pushed for the move? How difficult is that to understand? LFC did not want to sell Coutinho but unfortunately Coutinho made it clear he wanted to go.

Liverpool resisted last summer but unfortunately one cannot hang onto to a player who would have caused major uproar again if Liverpool did not allow him to go to Barcelona in this window.

And how many times do the EDS need to drill it into thick sculls that the club will only buy first choice players from now on i. e. only no 1 targets on and that there will be no panic buys in this window.

Get it? i. e. if the no 1 targets are not available or do not make sense financially in this window i. e. paying a very massive premium to bring Keita in earlier then the club will wait for the summer.

Lessons have been learned through the VVD deal. The club can no longer act like amateurs in the transfer market.

So please stop spitting the dummy out as it is unlikely any new additions will be arriving due to availability or ridiculous asking prices in the January window.

Moaners will have to keep their panties on until the summer.

That is exactly the problem. Mignolet is on a very lucrative contract and most clubs will snub him because of that.

So it will either be Liverpool who takes the knock or Mignolet becoming desperate and makes some tough decisions.

He might do well in the Serie A? Many GK's do.

Clyne will be moved on as soon as he has found someone who is interested.

Gomez and TAA have proven to be better options anyway.

It does not matter who we get. What matters is what we do to beat that team.

We have proven we can dismantle any team so on the day, bring Madrid, Barcelona or any other team. It is up to Klopp and the players to step up and show how much they want it. We cannot get onto the pitch and kick the ball around for them.

We are there to get behind the lads and they need to deliver. Bring it on!

Surely making it to the 1/ 4 finals of the CL is massive progress?

Finishing 2nd or 4th really does not make any difference as 2nd still gets you 2nd. Boo hoo if you get a runners up medal. Means bugger all. Both 2nd and 4th get you automatic qualification into the group stages of the CL.

Qualifying another season for CL surely is progress especially if you look back at years gone by. It is not like anyone had as bang on to win the EPL this season so not sure what some fans were expecting.

Another expansion of Anfield at this point will see FSG having to loan more money to the club which sees LFC's debt increase by another massive stadium expansion amount like we saw with the main stand.

There is also another route and that isd FSG instucting LFC to loan money from the banks to service the debt of the expansion LOL.

Not even they are that stupid, neither is the club. Hicks and Gillett all over again if that is the case. If H and G had gone ahead with building that fancy new stadium at Stanley Park which saw FSG writing off massive debt when it came to the plans for the build of the new stadium, then there was no way anyone would have been able to rescue this club from utter financial disaster if the build went ahead when H and G were still here.
