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.

Liverpool sit top of the table having qualified for the last 8 of the champions league only a few days before. Quite an achievement but still people moan. I don't get it, most would not of dreamed of this at the start of the season. Van Dijk has made his error for the year, Mane continues to score at will, and without being at 100% or full throttle the team are grinding out results. People of my age will remember the great Liverpool teams grinding out results, scoring late on and winning ugly. Well this team is doing just that. With Gomez almost ready for his comeback, a hint of the Ox being close and the likes of Keita, Salah and Firmino yet to hit their straps the run in looks to be very exciting . As a Welshman I watched a Grand Slam rugby performance from a Welsh team, playing in red and grinding out results. This Liverpool team are doing the same and whilst they have had a few hiccups, so have City (Swansea scared them), Palace beat them and let's face it Man Utd could yet have a big say in who wins the premiership. So let's just enjoy the ride, my cup is half full, what about yours-as an aside, after my catastrophic spinal injury of 16 months ago,2 weeks ago I was able to stand for the first time. All I need to do now is get my legs to move forward. Anything is possible. You've just got to believe.


1.) 18 Mar 2019 04:03:10
All very true. A win is a win is a win. At this stage of the season I don't care if we play terribly and win the rest of our games with own goals!
Sorry to hear about your spinal injury bud. Keep up the positivity the mind is a powerful thing! All the best with your recovery and hope you can be dancing in joy with us winning titles in the near future 💪.

2.) 18 Mar 2019 04:28:57
And more important than Liverpool's results is your return to full health mikeb57.We are all with you mate, keep going, never give up. YNWA!

{Ed001's Note - agreed, just read what he said and hopefully he will be back on his feet and dancing in joy after victories soon!}

3.) 18 Mar 2019 05:00:44
keep going my dude, youll get there! YNWA.

4.) 18 Mar 2019 05:10:34
Well in mike! Let’s turn the volume up! Let’s create an optimistic mood. YNWA.

5.) 18 Mar 2019 05:43:16
Mike57, we don't know eachother but you really moved me buddy.
On a lesser note, great post but waaayyy more important man - carry on and progress and get better!

6.) 18 Mar 2019 06:07:37
Great post Mike. Wishing you all the best in your health battle mate.

7.) 18 Mar 2019 06:12:46
I would like to wish you a speedy recovery. Hope things are not too bad for you.
The rest of your post I couldn't agree with. End of the day a win was a win so that's good. I just feel that other teams such as Arsenal or city would have smashed 3 or 4 goals and we should be doing the same.

8.) 18 Mar 2019 06:21:52
All the very best to you and your recovery Mike, what an achievement though to be able to stand again, good on you mate! that's huge, before you know it you'll be back up and about :) . Take care, I wish you all the luck in the world.

{Ed0333's Note - yes mike I echo everyone’s else’s sentiments I wish you a speedy recovery back to good health

9.) 18 Mar 2019 06:55:30
Brilliant post mike and I hope you get back to full health just keep the faith mate.

10.) 18 Mar 2019 07:36:58
Believe Mikeb. Believe my friend.

11.) 18 Mar 2019 08:12:41
Keep going mike nothing is more powerful than self belief and you sound like a strong individual, good luck to you and your family.

12.) 18 Mar 2019 08:26:23
All the best after the injury Mike! Top post buddy, keep smiling!

13.) 18 Mar 2019 08:39:09
Hey Mike, sounds like you’re making great progress. I founded a spinal injury rehab organisation in the UK. Ask the Eds to connect us if you want to learn more. Best wishes.


14.) 18 Mar 2019 09:07:09
Walter why 😂.

{Ed001's Note - because he lives in this fantasy world where Arsenal are actually good and have a good manager instead of Emery.}

15.) 18 Mar 2019 09:11:30
wow, thankyou guys. I have to say this sight has made my rehab a little more bearable and the encouragement you have just provided drives me even harder. I now live in Australia so being a long way from home, it was a huge shock and with no family other than my missus and my boys, it was all a bit daunting. But from day one I have believed, which is what I was trying to say. We have to believe then anything is possible. I have set myself goals and my greatest goal was to get back to the UK, to show family and friends that I am fine and slowly fixing myself. So on 1st May I fly back to old blighty and dream of witnessing Liverpool lifting not just the premiership but also the Champions league-why not I say. I am a tetraplegic for life, but one day I will be back to some sort of normal, for now i work with physios 5 days a week, and cannot thank them enough-as for Liverpool, please, please do this. Give us the dream. To flyPelicanfly, thankyou for your thoughts, I will endeavour to contact you.

16.) 18 Mar 2019 10:00:46
Wow, go on Mike. Seems you’ve got the strength that we all could do with a bit of. Congratulations on the massive milestone and best of luck in your recoveries. Sometimes seems a bit superfluous to say, but in you case especially, it’s one more focal point, so with that, come on the redmen!

17.) 18 Mar 2019 10:27:59
Walter? arsenal? really? i know you want klopp out. next you will be suggesting we replace him with emery.

18.) 18 Mar 2019 10:54:08
One major thing I learnt last year Mike was, this site comes together for their own. What the Eds have created here is something special and I'm sure you are seeing that mate. Please keep us all updated on your progress, I look real forward to hear when you're jumping around after we win the PL :) . Remember mate, everybody here is wishing you the absolute best.

19.) 18 Mar 2019 11:03:48
Great news Mike, keep going strong.

20.) 18 Mar 2019 11:18:27
Excellent positive mind set Mike we are with you all the way YNWA.

21.) 18 Mar 2019 13:32:50
Stay strong Mike, the full force of the LFC community is behind you, and you're attitude indicates you'll keep fighting to improve.

22.) 18 Mar 2019 13:39:16
Mike, keep the faith in the team and in yourself. Keep believing and anything is possible. Wishing you the best down under.

{Ed025's Note - yeah best of luck from all the ED,s as well mike..

23.) 18 Mar 2019 15:38:09
Good luck to you Mike, hope you continue to progress and improve as time goes on.

24.) 18 Mar 2019 17:21:06
Mike, this year could very well be a great year for you yet, lots of highs, stay strong mate .

25.) 18 Mar 2019 19:34:26
Mike, I am rooting for you to make a full recovery, my friend. Stay strong and positive just like our boys, manager and majority of the fan base. Who knows? You might just make it to the Open Top Bus Bash in good health. YNWA, my friend!

26.) 20 Mar 2019 07:58:25
Nothing but the best for you, Mike. At the end of the storm. You'll never walk alone.



29 Jul 2018 01:18:11
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.



09 Jun 2018 09:39:30
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.}

we will play tight and look to close down the spaces but they will look at this as an opportunity to get in behind us. I think Robertson and Trent will be targeted to be honest, but if we go in at 0-0 or 1-1 then the pressure will surely mount on them and as per Porto and Bayern, we may be able to nick it! Think the pace of Gomez alongside Van Dyke will be vital if they are picked and it will be interesting to see if Fabhino gets the job of sitting in deep and protecting the back 4,or will he go with the tried and tested. Its like a game of chess, lose concentration for a second and the game is gone!

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!
