just been reading on Wales online that Grujic is wanted by AC Milan, with Lazio, Atalanta and Fulham also interested in taking him on a permanant. Cardiff keen on another loan deal. Npt sure if its old news but interesting anyway.


{Ed002's Note - There has already been a discussion with Lazio and the price is not seen as a major issue. Milan are in a difficult situation right now, as such they may only be interested in a loan with an option to buy.}

1.) 20 Jun 2018 11:20:00
If he is considered good enough as an option by lazio, milan and rated by cardiff, i don't see why klopp doesn't see him as an option.
i didn't see cardiff but only two games for grujic and he was pretty good.
why did we get through so much trouble, lied our asses to everyone, get transfer bans for a player who holds no future at LFC. trafers at LFC leave me scratching my head.

I still feel he should have his chance at LFC. he impressed a lot in last years preseason and definitely has the skills, strength in his repertoire.

{Ed001's Note - Grujic lost his place and wasn't trusted, he has attitude issues and is simply not that good. Poor buy.}

2.) 20 Jun 2018 11:29:44
Allow him to move, we can't have another Lazor situation.

3.) 20 Jun 2018 12:22:55
Akshit-He might be good enough for Cardiff, Lazio and Milan but not for us.

4.) 20 Jun 2018 12:24:31
Grujic doesn’t and never did have the mobility to play under klopp. He is nowhere near dynamic enough, he’s a very talented lad and I have little doubt should still go on to have a very good career elsewhere.

5.) 20 Jun 2018 13:31:08
I'd imagine Lazio may see him as a Milinkovic-Savic replacement, being of a similar position and build. I reckon he'll have a really good career, just not at Liverpool for whatever reason. Good luck to him.

6.) 20 Jun 2018 13:45:09
Lazio midfield next year; Lucas Leiva, Marko Grujic and Luis Alberto.

Maybe we should ask them if they are interested in Mignolet, Moreno, Matip and Clyne?

7.) 20 Jun 2018 14:07:19
I might be wrong but I don't think Grujic was a Klopp buy. Was he not signed on a pre-contract before Klopp arrived?

8.) 20 Jun 2018 14:13:25
dont forget sturridge mk.

9.) 20 Jun 2018 15:00:37
No bigmurdo he was signed by Klopp, although I seem to recall it was actually Buvač who earmarked him. Or he went to Belgrade to speak with him, at least.

10.) 20 Jun 2018 15:02:46
Did he lose his place? I don't remember Grujic holding down a place.

{Ed001's Note - at Cardiff mate.}

11.) 20 Jun 2018 15:21:03
You're wrong bigmurdo, he was a Klopp buy.

12.) 20 Jun 2018 18:00:20
Every game he played for us he seemed to make one of those naughty challenges you should really get sent off for. He definitely has potential, though not as much as we first thought. Good luck to him wherever he goes.

13.) 20 Jun 2018 18:42:11
Suso all over again. It will take an attitude adjustment and hard work but I think he will go on to have a good career.

14.) 20 Jun 2018 19:27:23
Nothing like Suso who worked hard and impressed when given a chance but was simply not selected when other senior players were available. Suso left because he didn't feel he was being given a fair crack at the whip, the club would of liked to keep him - Grujic will leave because the club do not believe he is good enough, or working hard enough to earn a place in the squad.

15.) 20 Jun 2018 20:47:27
Grujic did ok job for cardiff. they went on a run off 8 games win. unbeaten for even more. But as soon as Gunnarson (iceland) was fit he was dropped. Rumours were he had to play minimum of 14 games for the loan. personally i would have him at cardiff but not the player of top teams. although better players possible better performances.

16.) 21 Jun 2018 06:02:06
Again i point towards the consequences of buying Grujic were pretty expensive for LFC and we did pay a good 10 million for him too.
This should be a learning. Sell and learn.

suggestion on Cardiff website that Grujic may be going on a permanant and Warnock was trying to get a deal done etc but sort of contradicted by Grujic running out for Liverpool in USA. Anybody know more than has already been said.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any decision right now. Lazio are likely still interested as they see him as one possible replacement for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.}

1.) 29 Jul 2018 07:08:25
Would be a waste if he goes. Whenever he’s been on the pitch he has looked useful. However as it seems he’s been mucked about by us it may be better if he moves on for all parties. Shame as I had high hopes. Does anyone know what the club actually think of him? Iv heard contradicting things that Klopp actually rtes him quite highly, but then he never plays and doesn’t train well?

2.) 29 Jul 2018 09:05:29
What awful thing has the club done to this lad?

3.) 29 Jul 2018 09:50:18
Read the interview where he was saying he's flattered to be linked to Cardiff again, but the club will decide what to do. I reckon decision is being left til later in pre season, hopefully he impresses and gets some meaningful game time this season, but it'll be tough for him with Milner, wiji and Lallana still there.

just a bit of a shout out to all the EDs and a tribute to ED02.I think you guys do an immense job (for free too), ED02 your knowledge, educated take on all aspects of the sport, and the fact you give up so much of your time, well it just astounds me that people give any of you a hard time. They say the more people in a room the higher the IQ but this really does not always apply, this site can prove that at times. Love the die hard ED25 with his off the cuff humour, ED333 who cracks me up and ED01 who is the real deal. ED02,thank you, you must be brimming with info so i salute your discipline and unblinkered observations. Great job one and all. We don't have to agree do we, but let's just appreciate what this site delivers day after day. Thankyou guys!




26 May 2018 05:16:11
not long now. Very excited, nervous but very proud that we are there, playing at the top table. Win or not, the strides made have been incredible, the football has been magical and the future is going to be so exciting. This is just the beginning, let's get that trophy, then let's kick on and build a squad to dominate as we did all those years ago. Can you feel it!




13 May 2018 09:22:03
hi guys, first time poster. Just want to say how wonderful it has been watching liverpool for the last 45 years, From the day Toshack was signed i became a Liverpool follower and boy what a ride i was taken on. The last 12 months has brought back so many happy memories of glorious European nights and at the lowest poijt in my life and a work placed fall that has left me a tetraplegic, I can honestly say that the best therapy I could have received was the resurgence of Liverpool in Europe. It has been a welcome distraction from the challenges I face and the football has has been breath taking. The characters on these pages, the banter, the knowledge, the editors, even the detractors make this my go to page when I get up and before I go to bed. I just cannot thank you enough for the time you put in editors, now all I ask for is a breath taking finish to the season. Come on Liverpool, I know you can do this!


{Ed025's Note - welcome aboard mike, lets hope there is still more to come mate..

1.) 13 May 2018 09:44:34
I hope some of the team check these pages and tell the rest of the squad to win the next 2 games for you Mike.

Keep your chin up, life deals you $h! t hands sometimes, but be strong and know you'll always have support on here. My dad had a severe accident when he was a teenager, lost his legs and one arm, and he's my hero because he's tried to live his life as fully as he can, and he's the best grandad my kids could wish for, so just try to be the best Mike you can be and that's all that matters.

2.) 13 May 2018 09:46:37
Great Post dude. I wish you well in the future.

3.) 13 May 2018 11:24:05
Post of the year right there mate. May there be many more from you.

4.) 13 May 2018 11:45:33
Top post mike👍 Hopefully champions league trophy coming soon bud.

5.) 13 May 2018 11:46:29
Go on Mike!

6.) 13 May 2018 14:52:47
It’s scenarios like the one described above why I love football. Those who don’t, or don’t understand see it as tribalism and hooliganism were as in reality it creates a family and something so simple that can make even the loneliest person feel welcome. Football isn’t perfect and he it’s issues but it does touch so many peoples lives and I’d gladly argue the positives far outweigh the negatives. Stay strong mike and welcome aboard!

7.) 14 May 2018 01:57:04
thanks for all your positive comments,1 down, champions league football secured. Now let's go win that cup, I can feel the force!

nobody is really firing just yet which makes it so exciting. When we click, well omg, this has the feeling of something special happening, how many times in our hayday did we score really late, sometimes in injury time, sometimes we were ordinary but we still got points, just like we have done so far this season. Sturridge missed a sitter, so did Shaq, and now Salah. Just means its getting closer to us giving someone a hiding and kicking on, something that looks so much better from the top of the ladder rather than 8 points off the pace. Come on guys, so far ahead of last season already!

it is what us blokes do you know. We take a knock, but get up, dust ourselves down and carry on. I fell over at work, did not realise that i had knocked myself on the head, felt a bit dizzy but carried on working.10 days later I lost the use of the right side of my body and am still in a wheelchair 7 months later. Top sportsmen take so many knocks, often they pay for it later. Looks like Karius carried on regardless.


{Ed001's Note - exactly mate, we are brought up to minimise problems, which is why male health issues are such a big concern. Men need to stop trying to act tough and actually realise it is ok to admit you need help at times.}

The win against Arsenal and the pressure on City now notches up. Many years ago rugby had a character called Micky Skinner who quoted "forwards win matches, backs decide by how much" - you can turn that around to say "defenders win matches, forwards decide by how much" - the defence is insanely good right now and whilst there is still room for improvement I cannot see them throwing games away. It sure helps having a goalkeeper you trust even though he has Bruce moments! just adds to the entertainment.

he missed a lot of chances so would probably greet the goal with relief rather than joy. He is still not where he wants to be performance wise so see it as a good thing. He will not be happy until he is banging them in for fun. let's see his face when he scores important goals in important games!

as the famous Ian Botham once said, form is temporary, class is permanant . Equal top, have played our 3 main challengers, 2 away from home and normal business will be resumed after the international break. We have now got a top keeper, a more than solid back 4, a midfield which is only going to get better and an attack which will tear some teams apart very soon. We are top and have not fired up just yet, how good is that!

Klopp has this loyalty thing going on, which sometimes is counter productive. He has to take the rose tinted glasses off and act. Obviously Karius is broken, so something has to be done. To me you pay whatever it takes, you build from the back and to suggest that paying 60-70 million in the current market is crazy, yet its ok to pay 99 million for a 33 year old looking for his final payday (i know he will give 100% mind you) just does not add up.75 million for VVd seemed to stir people up but boy what a difference he has made, perhaps Oblak will have a similar impact if Klopp was prepared to shell out and buy him. Klopp appears to be a guy you either love or hate and i think that ED02 has more knowledge and experience of this man than us so i think we should perhaps acknowledge that. If he was dishing out on any other manager then we would probably be loving it. don't get me wrong, i think Klopp is getting plenty right, but not this.

many years ago i was taken to watch Coventry v Stoke. A certain Gordon Banks was in goal and his mere presence between the sticks put the fear of god into the strikers, to the degree that Willie Carr, when presented with a penalty, misssed the goal by a good 2 yards. that's what we need now, a keeper that makes attackers feel they hve to find the corner!
