Just seen a report that 'suggests' that we have put in a bid for Kovacic. Surely this is lazy journalism, presuming that Macca is correct about Keita or does that suggest yet another twist in our summer plans?
(Presuming we had any)

Like you, I doubt that rumour very much, MDS. Kova is at Real Madrid, the best team on the planet where he has won 7 trophies in the past two seasons (and counting) and who is improving with every game as one player ZZ counts on. What on earth would he be doing here?


2.) 21 Aug 2017 23:17:26
No interest at all. Right ed?

{Ed002's Note - You would need to find another Ed to put words in the mouth of.}


3.) 22 Aug 2017 00:00:45
i hope so. he is one of my favourite players! but didn't Real just "reported" reject a bid from Juventus.

{Ed002's Note - There was indeed an offer which Juve thought would be successful that was rejected.}


4.) 22 Aug 2017 00:11:46
Bingo - he'd be playing more than he does at Madrid. Players have a tendency to want to play more than they are doing. Maybe it sounds familiar (Emre Can)?


5.) 22 Aug 2017 01:06:53
Well if Kovacic's lack of playing time persists this season as well, then we can sign him next season as replacement for Coutinho who will create a fuss later on anyways. Just to p*** Barcelona off, we should offer Real Coutinho and demand cash and Kovacic (if they want Coutinho) . Barcelona will look like utter fools then.


6.) 22 Aug 2017 05:42:44
@Ib

If Kovacic do come this window then that flat footed sideways passing midfield would look like world beater! If Keita isn't happening then Kovacic is an ideal replacement! And I ll go mad 😎😎😎😎😎.

Hi,
Two things.

1. Presumably, now that Southampton have accepted our apology, we'll attempt to re-ignite the VVD transfer, but doing it properly?

2. Are we still looking for a top class striker or do you think that Klopp will stick with Sturridge, Origi, Ings, Solanke and Firmino. plus Woodburn.

Ed01 said that Peter Moore will be meeting with Saints Directors today to smooth things out and see if they can still do the VVD deal. Saints will do the deal provided we pay what they ask for. Can and will we do that? We shall see.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know if it is today, they will certainly be meeting. I think it is today, though I am not actually sure what day today is! Is it Thursday today?}


2.) 08 Jun 2017 16:40:53
We've publicly stated we've ended interest in VVD as part of an embarrassing apology. How would it look or be acceptable to Southampton if we now ask for that player?


3.) 08 Jun 2017 16:56:44
Things change and people go back on there word. at the end of the day we're all human and if the deal is right then i can't see why Southampton won't do business especially if its for 50 million plus.


4.) 08 Jun 2017 17:00:14
Been a long week has it Ed001!

{Ed001's Note - you could say that.}


5.) 08 Jun 2017 17:00:32
Great, so know we're meeting with Southampton's directors and trying to tap them up, hope we asked the Saints first.


6.) 08 Jun 2017 17:17:56
Soton could now charge the earth and say 'they had to let him go now because our approach destabilised him and he wanted to leave, but liverpool paid the proper compensation for what they did'. Hell of a lot easier for them to save face now.

Welcome to Liverpool Danny Ings. Looks like we are making our summer moves early to avoid getting involved in bidding wars for players we really want. Great signing no.2!

My question is - will we make a move for another striker? We now have Sturridge, Ings and Origi. Our system usually accommodates one up top with Coutinho/Lallana one side and Sterling/New bloke on the other.

Hardly the moves people are hoping for given neither signing address's our current needs. I hope they both do well but it seems we're destined to repeat the mistakes of last year-. Adding quantity over quality.


2.) 08 Jun 2015 13:25:50
Swish

They will address our current needs once we start to move other players on from the club,although I do agree that we need to focus on other areas also. Two very good signings IMO as both have proven success in the PL. Give them a chance as I'm sure Milner will be a hit from the start and Ings will score goals but may need a bit of time to adjust to the step up and then we will probably see a player who bags us at least 10 goals a season which is more than acceptable. If he can score 11 for Burnley imagine how many he can get with better service from our midfield.

Everyone seems to be shouting for Klopp to replace Rodgers, but why?
Klopp has only managed 2 clubs and has win rate of 49%
Rodgers has managed 4 clubs and win rate of 45%
Is this just change for changes sake or am I missing something? The last time I checked Dortmund were also having a terrible season.

I find it laughable that you have ask that question.


2.) 30 Apr 2015 13:51:35
Klopp has had to operate on a shoestring budget whilst competing against a Bayern team who completely dominate German football to the extent where they've actually cherry picked Klopp's best players in recent years. He has seen his team repeatedly dismantled and yet he still manages to put some passion into his players.

This season Dortmund have had ridiculously bad luck with injuries and they haven't got a very large squad as finances at Dortmund don't allow it. Yet he has still taken them to a cup final and will still finish 5th judging by current form.

You are looking at the stats without considering the circumstances even remotely. Klopp is in a different league to Rodgers. Whilst Rodgers has had one good season in 3, Klopp has had one bad season in about 5. He still got to the CL knockout stages though and still looks set to pick up silverware.

What has Rodgers won aside from 45% of his matches? That's something to tell the grand kids about!


3.) 30 Apr 2015 14:06:09
Klopp had also had he's squad cherry picked by Bayern . Goetze lewandowski and kagawa, at the time bundesliga player of year to United . Gundogan blawosakowski out for most the year . 2 bundesliga a champs league final, and a German cup is brilliant there . It's a similar league in terms of prem . And he's took them back from the dark days . Fair worse than what we are at now . To not even enquire as the Edds have said , is criminal . Try and if you fail fair enough . But ask the question


4.) 30 Apr 2015 14:08:49
Klopp is by far the best out of the two. Both in terms of management and character.


5.) 30 Apr 2015 14:26:17
Dortmund have had a poor year by their standards, true. But they are 1 point below 7th and 3 points off 5th, while we are 1 point above 7th. They've also won one trophy already this season and in the final to perhaps win another. Klopp's response to potentially finishing 5th with 2 trophies was to ask to be released from his contract. Rodgers response to finishing between 5th and 7th with no trophies was to proclaim we would make marquee signings in the summer and we would challenge for the title next year.

You're also ignoring that Klopp has managed first teams fit 14 years, Rodgers for 7 now (half of those at Liverpool).


6.) 30 Apr 2015 14:33:12
What is laughable AG is listening to this constant Klopp, Klopp, Klopp.
Like the kin Grand National.


7.) 30 Apr 2015 14:45:46
Klopp might have an admiration for Liverpool but so what ?
Arda Turan is apparently a fan, Luke Shaw is supposed to be a Chelsea fan, so what ?
It won't make a blind bit of difference as to where he ends up, which won't be at Liverpool I would wager.


8.) 30 Apr 2015 15:11:46
''You are looking at the stats without considering the circumstances even remotely.''

EMS :)

you make me smile sometimes mate.


9.) 30 Apr 2015 15:21:47
Bring Klopp in over Rodgers anyday


10.) 30 Apr 2015 16:06:26
Some stats don't like though mate.

2 league titles competing against one of the best team in the world, a team that have made it to 3 of the last 6 champions league finals!

Has also won 4 cups and got to a CL final and works with a wage bill that at the start of this season was 30% lower then QPRs.

As for this season think losing his best players year on year to his rivals plus a lot of injuries probably didn't help! Saying that if he wins us two league titles and 4 cups in what 6 years I would be very content!


11.) 30 Apr 2015 19:38:00
If we tried for turan we'd a have signed him marquee enough for me 😉 (even tho we have 6 players in his positioned)


12.) 30 Apr 2015 19:41:49
People are just hopeful The Juicer. As for the OP, there really cannot be any relevant comparison between Klopp and Rodgers where Rodgers comes even remotely close to Klopp at pretty much every level - trophies, success, style of play, coaching, managing, building a team, having to deal with his best players being picked off etc.


13.) 30 Apr 2015 23:57:09
The OP is using worthless stats to make a disingenuous point. Klopp and BR will NEVER be in the same class and I will not explain why because explaining it alone would be a waste of my time.

Our summer plans? Waste almost the entire transfer window chasing after players that we are told aren't available. keep chasing them. suddenly find out Barcelona are after our best player. discover that he actually wants to leave. return to chase players that aren't available and then realise we have no plan B for
1. The original players we were after
2. a plan to replace our best player who if off to Barcelona.

Then immediately realise that we are no better than we were last season due to all of the above.

Fair enough Ed001.
Don't you think it's quite ironic that we spend all summer chasing a player, throwing money at the club and continually getting told 'he's not for sale' to then be placed in that position ourselves? Hopefully Liverpool have learnt a thing or two in this window about the value of a player to a team, compared to the value of money.

I agree with scruffy. What about Rakitic? I'd rather take him (although he is 29) and not have that mad 'end of window scramble' to buy anyone at any price to replace Phil, presuming that he goes. Rakitic is direct, has got the skills and has played at the highest level.

Wasn't he the guy from Outkast? Andre 3000? If so, that's another pop star that's been linked with us after Lemar. Maybe we're starting a band?

Seriously though, I too have become one of those sad people who spends the entire summer searching for Liverpool transfer rumours and then going straight to youtube when I've never heard of them. From the looks of him, he's someone who can help break down teams and provide a link between midfield and attack, combined with an incredible interception rate.
Looks good to these eyes and youtube.

Is it 3 games to save his job or are they just finding their replacement at the same time so that a quick change can happen and therefore provide an immediate change?

mydogskip

{Ed023's Note - I don't understand the logic of keeping him for 3 games. Let's say we win those 3 and then lose the next 3, does he get a further 3 games to save his job?}
