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?

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.

Hi

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 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.


 

 

10 Nov 2016 14:22:31
Is Glen Johnson seriously being considered by Bareclona?

Good luck to the lad, I wish him all the best; I just don't see him as a Barcelona player?

mikey B

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona have other options in mind and are already talking with another Premier League club about a player. I suspect it would be most unlikely.}


1.) 10 Nov 2016 15:54:24
Thee is a young left back called Alberto Moreno at Liverpool. Pretty good player, do you think it may be him that Barcelona are looking at?


2.) 10 Nov 2016 20:02:32
Yeah. But only for working at the hot dog stand.


 

 

30 Oct 2016 21:40:11
Along the lines of the best liverpool team since the 96 Evans class. I am too young to remember the team of the 70s and early 80s, so my favourite was under Benitez.

Alonso, Masch, gerrard and Torres in his pomp. A great defense, just missing width.

If Benitez had not pissed off Alonso and sold him I think we would have won the title.

What do you all think?

mikey B

1.) 30 Oct 2016 22:02:59
It was a great team, but I sincerely believe the team we have riggght now is even better.


2.) 30 Oct 2016 22:43:30
Also believe if Benitez had got the targets he was after, then we would have got close. I don't mean Gareth Barry btw.


3.) 31 Oct 2016 00:14:01
That squad just lacked the right depth tbh, i agree with bobby, if rafa was able to get some of his targets i think we may have went on to win it. I don't however agree that our squad right now is better. We may be more of a threat going forward but that was a solid team all over the park front to back. The GK was the best we had in years and we still haven't replaced him, we have never had a settled back four like we had in that team which was miles better than what we have now let's be honest. That midfield, well there's no debate, anyone that thinks our midfield now even comes close to that is deluded. Torres alone was a bigger threat than anyone we have now individually, but as a whole, our offence is greater now than it was then. What i will say is that its a very different team that focuses on a different style of play. The quality of football has delclined in the premier league therefore teams that can't defend to save their life can challange, but not win the league. The quality was far greater then but not as entertaining, premier league is by far the most entertaining legue in the world bar none.


4.) 30 Oct 2016 22:52:59
Raffa had no choice but to sell the clubs prize assets as Gillette and Hicks put all the debt they used to buy the club back on the club.
So all our transfer kittys were spent paying off the interest on their loans
A proper pair of c@#$ s
Promises were made to Raffa that were never kept.
Thsts why Alonso and Machrrano moved on.
I'm happy now with Klopp but I reckon Raffa would now do s great job as
well.
Good luck to him at Newcastle.
And it'll be great to see him back next year.


5.) 30 Oct 2016 23:44:59
Can one of the eds let me know the truth about an old rumour. TO do with Alonso not wanting to go to play in a game away v Barcelona as his wife was about to give birth. I hear Benitez made him go and they fell out which (added to the fact Benitez tried to sell him to fund buying Barry (utter madness) ) led to Alonso wanting out. Ed Pls can you elaborate?

{Ed001's Note - Xabi never went, that was why they fell out. He went to his child's birth instead. I can't remember which game it was though.}


6.) 31 Oct 2016 00:34:45
I don't think this team is close to the one Rafa assembled with Torres, Alonso etc but saying that i don't think this team needs to be anywhere near that level to win the league. Chelsea, United Arsenal etc where far better teams then than they are now.


7.) 31 Oct 2016 04:14:15
Rafa's team was the most complete team we had in past 20 years. Alonso-Masch-Gerrard the best midfield ever.


8.) 31 Oct 2016 07:04:27
Alonso skipped the Inter game i think Ed001. To be fair to him, we already had the tie wrapped up in the first leg from what i remember.

{Ed001's Note - it was the birth of his child. To be fair to him, family is the most important thing in life and Rafa knows that now and has admitted since he got it wrong.}


9.) 31 Oct 2016 08:01:15
Precisely what i said Ed001. We were going through against Inter irrespective of whether Xabi played or not so Rafa definitely messed that up. Good to know that Rafa acknowledged his mistake on that. Don't know what was worse; getting rid of Xabi or trying to replace him with frigging Gareth Barry!

{Ed001's Note - losing Xabi was the big problem. He was a class above anyone else in the world at that time, in his role in the team.}


10.) 31 Oct 2016 08:12:19
You are wrong Ed001. Losing Xabi was THE ONLY PROBLEM in our squad back then. Gerrard and Mascherano completely fell apart after Xabi left and it cost our team 2 and a half world class players. Even worse, there was not even a half decent replacement available in the market back then. There is Verrati now, but even he is ordinary compared to what Xabi could do.

{Ed001's Note - Mash was never that good anyway, Alonso made him look good as he was always there covering for his headless chicken runs.}


11.) 31 Oct 2016 08:23:38
Imagine that team with a present-day Klopp at the helm. Nothing against Rafa but Jurgen seems to get an extra 10% out of his players.


12.) 31 Oct 2016 08:59:18
I agree Annie, though I liked Rafa and wish him all the best, compared to Klopp he's far behind, to of had that kind of team under Klopp it'd of been a different story. But the exciting thing to me about this, is he's improving the team week in week out, just look at Hendo to me he's just improving and improving he's outstanding at the moment and I beleive he will just keep getting better not to mention the rest of the squad, the team we have today in my eyes is better then the team rafa had or atleast it has more potential, our defence improves we're more or less complete.


13.) 31 Oct 2016 09:56:33
Rafa would have won the EL against Sevilla by 1-0 Absolutely no question on it and if people think he is not better than klopp needs a head check. I love klopp but tactically Rafa is some country miles better than rest.


14.) 31 Oct 2016 10:29:18
I agree with you Harry 100%.


15.) 31 Oct 2016 10:37:17
Harry I couldn't disagree more, another ridiculous post from you. Yes rafa was good there's no doubt about that. But better then Klopp I think you need to give your head a bang mate. How can you say rafa would've won it against them lol stupid statement.


16.) 31 Oct 2016 10:47:06
Not sure how is that a ridiculous post LFC16. Its my opinion and fact. Rafa knows how to see out a game at 1-0. You are too young to rememeber Rafa did such against some heavyweights during his tenure. He beat a Barcelona 2-0, Inter 1-0 and Real 1-0. Sevilla is no match.
Once you score a goal and then you realise you are being pressed high up by the oppostiion, You make tactical changes to prevent such.


17.) 31 Oct 2016 15:31:50
Too young to remember? Let's not argue about who is older now kidda lol. Tell me how it's fact when it didn't happen?


18.) 31 Oct 2016 17:31:19
What did not happen LFC16. Rafa all in his life has won football matches due his tactical brilliance. He wijldcgsvd walked away with EL against Sevilla. There are only very few who could tactically outclass Rafa.


19.) 31 Oct 2016 19:10:14
Yes Harry and Klopp is one of them mate.


20.) 01 Nov 2016 01:23:58
Harry, you have no idea if Rafa would have beaten Sevilla so your post makes no sense. Very few who can outclass Rafa? I know Carlo outclassed him in the CL final vs Milan and so did Luis Enrique when he got hammered at Real vs Barcelona and many more I can't remember right now. You seem to make a lot of generalizations and blanket statements in your posts which make very little sense. Btw, you opinion cannot at the same time be a fact. No wonder the Ed's and many others give you so much stick for the stuff you post.


21.) 01 Nov 2016 19:42:29
I doubt that any of them would be suited to klopps method bar Stevie and Suarez.
I don't think the rest could deal with the tempo of pressing.

he is a good player for a team that plays direct football. For that reason, he would do well under big Sam at Sunderland.

It is a shocking plan. clubs like city have big squads with strength in depth to cope with all the games. If both teams make a combined 10 changes it would ruin the flow of the game.

I think Guardiola needs five changes as he is not sure how to set up his teams against "lesser" premier league clubs who do not just roll over.

We can slate City's defence, but IF and it is a big if, Kompany can get fit and play a run of games next year they will be a very different team. Also both City and Chavski can just open the cheque book in January.

We have a great chance this season, but do not underestimate these two teams.

How nice it is to have options. Remember when we came close a few years back, we had a great 11 and no options. This squad has stars but it also has depth.
