Hi Eds, I read that Can is waiting for Liverpool to agree a release clause or similar before he will commit to a new contract.

Ed2 has suggested that they have no legal basis in the UK. I am no expert, could you please explain whether Can is looking for this and if so, why that may be, if they have no basis in the UK?

mikey B

{Ed001's Note - I have not heard anything about him wishing for a release clause sorry.}

1.) 06 Sep 2017 13:23:48
Do you know why Can has not signed a new contract Ed001?
And, in your opinion, do you think he will sign or will he leave for nothing at the end of the season.

Y. N. W. A.

{Ed001's Note - I have answered this a hundred times.}

He's lost his pen vcromp. Club won't supply a new one and have told him it will come out of Clyne's wages if they have to. Clyne was angry at being dragged into it and retaliated by stabbing Klopp in the thigh with a fountain pen. Klopp lost his cool. Took off his hipster glass and smashed Clyne through the treatment table with a Batista bomb.

Whole situation is messy. Clyne is in a coma, Can still doesn't have a pen, and Klopp is being investigated by the WWE for a dangerous unscripted move.

James Milner, witness to the whole thing, has been quoted as saying "i have a pen he can borrow"

3.) 06 Sep 2017 14:42:08
You are in desperate need of some holidays. Preferably where there is only seas, sun and sand, with no humans around. And plenty of time to reflect on what other interests to pursue aside from football in your free time, because football is bringing out the violent side in you.

4.) 06 Sep 2017 14:42:33
VR he's worried about playing time. He sees Keita has just been signed and he'd be an immediate starter for Juventus. I like the lad a lot, but I think he would be even better in the black and white stripes. I want him to stay however.

5.) 06 Sep 2017 16:19:02
He hasn't signed as non of the incompetants in the lfc player contracts dept has asked him yet.

6.) 06 Sep 2017 16:37:11
If you can't get in liverpools team why would you get in juventus.

{Ed001's Note - because they have told him he will.}

7.) 06 Sep 2017 17:28:11
Just give him the 100 grand a week and a fair release clause and be done with it. Cheaper than buying a replacement and he is going to just keep getting better.

{Ed002's Note - I have not said that they have no legal basis in the UK. You all need to forget about clauses.}

8.) 06 Sep 2017 18:20:03
Accept that he's going. If he was going to stay he would of signed by now. He knows he's not going to be 1st choice next year that's y he's off end of.

9.) 06 Sep 2017 18:36:06
Is that how it works ed1? that's surprised me how a team can guarentee a player he will start all the time.

{Ed001's Note - if a team really wants a player they will do a lot to convince them to join.}

10.) 06 Sep 2017 19:50:01
I think a hundred times is a conservative estimate to be honest but yeah, this must be driving you mad by now.

11.) 06 Sep 2017 21:25:59
Ed didn't we tell Grujic he'd get games among others.

{Ed002's Note - yes and the WP committee.}

12.) 06 Sep 2017 23:14:34
I don't see how any teams can guarantee playing time. If you are looking poor in training you won't be risked in anything other than minor cup games or occasional sub.

13.) 07 Sep 2017 00:03:35
This whole game time thing winds me up. If you want to play then work your nuts off, improve enough so you can't be dropped. That's the only way. If you're going to whinge about not playing instead of knuckling down and working on your game then you can do one as far as I'm concerned.

14.) 07 Sep 2017 01:02:30

Was it just a pen, or an apple-pen?

{Ed001's Note - it was a Mont-Blanc mate. Apple pen my arse, footballers don't want cheap tat like that!}

15.) 07 Sep 2017 01:21:16
Cant they give him say £2m lump sum to sign new contract. Then sell for £40m. Rather than squabble and lose him for free or £20m in jan.

16.) 07 Sep 2017 05:16:33
Something is very very wrong if we can't give our best midfielder the same guarantees as Juventus.

17.) 07 Sep 2017 06:56:33
Haizan, unsubstantiated reports this morning are suggesting the the fountain pen removed from Jurgen's thigh has the words "From Brazil with love" inscribed down the side.

Coutinho has denied any involvement but there was a bank transfer of £7.56 between himself and Clyne just 2 days ago.

The plot thickens.

18.) 07 Sep 2017 08:05:10
i think you may have missed what Haizan was trying to say ed001.

i believe he was referring to a viral video named Pen Pineapple Apple Pen.

i may be wrong, bt u didn't hear this from me. its a horrible video. don't watch it. just dont.

{Ed001's Note - erm.....}

19.) 07 Sep 2017 08:32:27
I have a pen,
I have an apple,
Apple Pen!

I have a pen,
I have pineapple,
Pineapple pen!

Pen pineapple, apple pen!

Yeah don't watch it Ed001. It ruins your social life. I haven't been out in 6 months.

{Ed001's Note - I am really getting worried for people's sanity.}

It's the best song to come out of Asia since 'Gangnam style' mate!

21.) 07 Sep 2017 10:12:09
Any team can promise a player game time doesn't mean to say he will get it once he signs a 5 year deal. and i had to laugh when someone said our Best midfielder i have said it a few times he isn't fit to wear the shirt he has had a handful of good games since he got here. let him go in January, but of course he can talk to any foreign clubs in Jan and sign a pre contract agreement to sign in the summer. players come and go but the team is the most important. YNWA.

22.) 07 Sep 2017 12:04:53
MK Scouser, thanks for your WWe based comment, I've had a shitty day at work and that made me giggle.

23.) 07 Sep 2017 12:07:36
Hope he stays, if even for the future transition of hendo, lallana and Milner. Hope he is looking at that and seeing he, along with keita are the very near future engine room for liverpool.

24.) 07 Sep 2017 12:16:06
Jack Bezants from Mailonline (Don't shoot me) insists the issue with Can's contract is a release clause.

It could be that he wants a release clause, in case he does not get the game time he desires - giving him a way out.

25.) 07 Sep 2017 12:47:43
Even if the club agree to a clause something i can't see them being against as it would mean they would recieve a fee when he moves on there will be a multitude of excuses for not signing. can has had no intention of signing for a long time. complete stupidity by lfc lettin it get this far. edwards is world class according to werner.

26.) 07 Sep 2017 16:14:57
I think we've misinterpreted why MK mentioned the pen.

It was "iron" -it was firm, it was mineral. No, no, no, that's stupid. It was. It was firm, it was adamant, it was resolved.

It was resolved.

Jurgen Klopp used the Pen to sign the Declaration of Independence :o.

27.) 07 Sep 2017 20:33:25
Didt Glenda Johnson have a appearance clause in his contract guaranteeing him playing time.

28.) 08 Sep 2017 02:47:51
Wish Can reads this and runs away to Juventus with his pen, apple and pineapple.

This site should be thanked for making space for others.


29.) 08 Sep 2017 06:34:06
I players wanting assurances that they are being signed as a starting player, to be played in their regular position and no plans to sign other starting players in same role; is being confused with a player expecting to play regardless. I don't think even footballers think they will play every game regardless, (with some very few exceptions) and I would expect they understand the flip side of that would be the manager would be able to say they have to play even when they don't want to. It is not so different to any of us going for a job where they give a range of roles and we want to understand what the split of our time is likely to be. You don't sign to be benching or out of position and back up if you want to be playing regularly. Can as the Eds have said sees that as what he'd be signing up to at LFC.



10 Dec 2016 16:09:29
I hear rumours that West Ham are considering a bid for Sturridge. Is this likely and would Liverpool and the player consider it?

I love him but he is not a Klopp first team player.

If he were to go do you think Liverpool would replace him or wait till Summer?

mikey B

1.) 11 Dec 2016 09:33:38
No chance.

2.) 12 Dec 2016 08:40:47
I think it is likely and i think should they bid we'd be daft to not consider it.



21 Jun 2016 11:33:51

I hear coutinho is off to PSG. They seem to buy all Brazilians. Is this true and likely to happen?

mikey B

1.) 21 Jun 2016 12:42:07
Sure they can have him. For £65 mil.

2.) 21 Jun 2016 15:19:03
You say that like they wouldn't pay that for him natural. wouldn't even dent their funds.
Was Coutinho playing in Copa America before Brazil were knocked out?
Not seen mich of the Euros never mind the Copa America, was wondering about his form for Brazil because he didn't have a sensational season for us. Played well but also went missing for patches.

3.) 21 Jun 2016 15:46:33
He did score a hat trick. granted it was in a 7-1 route of Haiti.

4.) 21 Jun 2016 15:50:24
I'm saying that as a figure (in my mind) I'd be happy with. A figure I believe would allow us to not only reinvest, but improve.
On the other hand. I clearly don't want to lose our best player.

5.) 21 Jun 2016 16:37:14
Depends how you define "best" player someone who turns up every 6th week then yep he's nailed it.

6.) 21 Jun 2016 17:18:47
after reading the posts on here about Couthino it seems no matter what he does he is doing something wrong, he is a young lad and played so many games for us last season and you could see that the last few games of the season he was feeling jaded, he gets stick because he does not score enough goals, so when he starts shooting he then gets stick about not assisting in many goals, so we can't have both from a young player, for me he is our best player and will get better, if we sell him he will leave a big hole that will be hard to fill, I've watched him play and he never gets any credit for winning the ball back which he does a lot, but like suarez because he is good the big teams are looking at him, he has come out and said he is happy at the club and likes playing for Klopp, plus what Klopp does is gets the best out of players and makes them better players as we seen when he became our manager because a lot of players were not playing that good but when Klopp came he got the best out of them, you only have to look at the way Lovren got better, at one point a lot of fans wanted him gone because he was not playing that good but after klopp got into him he was one of the most improved players at the end of the season because Lovren and Sakho became our main CB pairing who played well with each other so i say let's give Couthino another season under Klopp and because we have no european football he won't play as many games so we will see the best of him, he is not like hendo or milner who have good engines on them he's just not like that but he is our best player imo so we should keep him.

7.) 21 Jun 2016 18:08:05
65 million so we can waste it on mid table players that had 1 decent season yet again.

8.) 21 Jun 2016 18:46:35
Yipster, I'm sensing an underlying sentiment here. 😬😬😬.

9.) 21 Jun 2016 21:07:11
Coutinho - great pro, great talent, young lad who has yet to reach his peak.

PSG can go and whistle.

10.) 22 Jun 2016 00:02:35
He was the best of a severely poor excuse for a Selecao team. PSG ain't paying 65m for him especially if he's not their first or second choice.

11.) 22 Jun 2016 14:13:09
If you think we're going to get £65 million for Coutinho then you need rehab.

I have a feeling we are going to tonk Arsenal with a bag full of goals. I am going for 5 - 1

Now should i put a fiver on that?

mikey B

{Ed025's Note - save you money mikey, liverpool will beat arsenal imo but it will be a lot tighter than that mate..

1.) 21 Dec 2017 15:57:07
I think so, Ed. Mikey, Arsenal at home, are no joke this season vs the top 6 and Utd had a GK standing on his head, to thank for their win so just chill out a bit cos it will be a tough game.

{Ed025's Note - i agree mate..

2.) 21 Dec 2017 16:19:58
maybe it is the holiday season, and that i have had a scotch; but I have faith; i reckon they will feel they can get at us, and we can counter them with lightning speed.

I have faith. But will keep my money in my wallet.

{Ed025's Note - good idea mikey..

3.) 21 Dec 2017 16:21:13
I'm thinking another high scorer. 4-2 either way, depending on who gets ahead first and forces the opposition to take risks. Hopefully it'll be in our favour!

{Ed025's Note - im sure you lot think its rugby with your predictions.. :)

4.) 21 Dec 2017 16:32:38
It’s going to be a lot tougher than the reverse fixture.

5.) 21 Dec 2017 17:12:55
We have scored at least 3 in our last 5 away games Ed, I think we have been getting spoilt lately and may be getting a little carried away. That said it doesn't look the tightest game on paper and there could well be plenty of goals either way.

6.) 21 Dec 2017 18:56:01
I am more concerned about Swansea.

7.) 21 Dec 2017 22:55:46
Spot on, Mikey B.

8.) 22 Dec 2017 02:10:19
If we score early it’ll be a spanking, the longer we go without taking the leader the harder it’ll be to get one, attacking wise we’re far better but that wa strike about spurs too, a mistake or two later and we get a drumming. It’s one of them hard to predict games. I did see Mersin predict a 2.1 arsenal win which I don’t see myself I’m confident we’ll do it but score lines I couldn’t guess.



16 Nov 2017 12:02:57

Hi All, I am taking my nephew to the Spurs game. His first trip to wembley. Any of you guys know where the away fans will go for a pint before the game?

mikey B

{Ed002's Note - "There are a number of pubs near Wembley, though we are yet to see which of them become the traditional ‘away pub’ during the forthcoming season. Please note, however, that some bars require club colours to be covered and some do not allow children."

1.) 13 Oct 2017 12:18:38
I live near wembley - and i suggest going to 'the Torch' that's usually where the england fans go for a pint. No idea if Spurs have made it their own pub though.



30 Aug 2017 08:52:39
Reds and Eds, I am a little concerned.
I feel that we do not really need to sign Lemar and absolutely do not need the OX.

I would rather we make commitments to Can as he is developing in to a real force.

If we sign a decent centre half and then concentrate on Can extending, that would be the best outcome for me. Whether Couts goes or stays, I think Can is the most important signing.

What do you guys think?

mikey B

{Ed001's Note - Lemar is a totally different type of player to Can. The two are totally unrelated.}

1.) 30 Aug 2017 09:19:06
Comparing Lemar to Can is like comparing David Silva to Fernandinho! What is happening to the most knowledgable fans these days, I wonder 🙄.

2.) 30 Aug 2017 09:29:04
Sorry I think I have not communicated properly. I do not compare Lemar to Can, it is more my thought that we do not need to prioritise Lemar or the Ox. I personally feel we have enough across midfield (especially with Keita next year and youngsters coming through) . As such, I would prefer we focus on a defender and getting Can to commit to a new contract. If that happened I would say the window had been a very successful window.

3.) 30 Aug 2017 09:55:16
I think signing Lemar, VVD and keeping Can are priorities. Forget buying AOC and that would suit me, having signed Solanke, Robertson, Salah and Kieta (coming next year I know) that would be good business - even with the departure of Coutinho.
I am concerned we did not accept the £25mil for Sakho - let him go and restart his career. Would like to see the players that don't fit as such move on.

4.) 30 Aug 2017 10:06:00
Harry, have you ever heard the saying "that's rich coming from you"?

Very popular in British culture.



30 Nov 2016 14:25:32
I am glad to see people on here are not over doing the fact that Woodburn scored last night. There are lots of articles floating around about the impact Klopp is having in the youth set up.

Seeing Woodburn and A-Arnold playing last night is a great omen for the future.

I wonder if the eds, or any other informed reds may be able to give a balanced view of some of the prospects who are coming through the academy?

The ones to watch as it were?

Also any thoughts on whether Flanno has a future with the club?

mikey B

1.) 30 Nov 2016 16:25:38
Much as it pains me, I'm not sure Flano has a future, certainly as a RB.

With Clyne and not TAA, I think that position is sown up for a few years to come.

Such a shame as I think Flano is a great player, but in my mind he's not attacking enough to fit the Klopp system.

A year or two ago, there was talk of him as a DM, and if that is a position he can/ wants to play, I can see him pushing Lucas and Stewart for that role.

Again, unlikely as its not his natural position (has he every played there, Eds? ) and it would be a heart over head choice as he's a scouser and has come up through the ranks.

{Ed001's Note - he played there for a while, prior to the injury crisis which forced Rodgers to give him a go at full back. Flanno would play in goal, if Liverpool asked him to. The lad just desperately wants to play for Liverpool. He proved he was good enough and his goal against Spurs surely shows he has the attacking quality needed as well?}

2.) 30 Nov 2016 17:28:09
Good point on Spurs, Ed, forgot about that. Do you think he has a future with us? In an ideal world, he would have the RB position and TAA would be challenging him. However, Clyne seems to be growing into the role and will be difficult to dislodge, or certainly Klopp seems to think so?

Also, above, I meant to type "With Clyne and NOW TAA", not "not"!

{Ed001's Note - personally, if Flanno was at his best I believe he would be first choice right now, but he is not back to his best yet and it takes time after a long injury to recover. Recent studies have shown that an ACL injury changes the way the brain uses the legs and requires retraining to ever return to normal.

“The brain fundamentally changed in how it processes information from an injured knee,” said Dustin Grooms, Ph.D, a researcher who conducted the study at Ohio State and is currently employed at Ohio University. “We think those changes play a big role in why people who recover from ACL injuries don’t trust their knees entirely and tend to move them differently.”

The above is a quote from a study recently published in the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy. It shows why players face such a long road back to their best after such serious injuries. Flanno has the desire, he has the will to do it, so I do believe, in time, he can be back to something like his best, but I don't believe we are willing to give him that time. Sadly I think he will end up moving on, though he is potentially far better than Clyne. Unless he returns to something approaching his best before the season ends, I think he will end up leaving.}

3.) 30 Nov 2016 18:55:02
Surely jurgen knows how much he loves the club and will give both flanagan and ings the support they deserve. Just because they can't offer anything on the pitch for a while, does not mean we cast them off. We look after our own and hopefully that will reap its own rewards.

If I were young and growing up in the academy of a Premier league team, i would jump at the chance to go to Dortmund, or other European clubs that play to a decent standard. I know money makes the world go round and all; but playing football at a high level has to be the best thing for a footballer wanting a career in the game.

Seeing Schmichael on Monday night football really demonstrated how a good goal keeper coach could make a massive difference to keepers, especially young keepers. I am not saying we get him in, but we need a very good coach for the keepers.
