Good afternoon Eds any truth in press reports linking us to Josip Ilicic? I tried search but only found some links from 2013.
Looks a decent player from what I have read but seems a bit old at 28 to be a typical 'pool signing.

newposition

{Ed002's Note - There is no interest in Ilicic from Liverpool, but there is from elsewhere.}


1.) 06 Apr 2016 16:11:47
Thank you.

Dear Eds, I read today that Mkhitaryans contract runs out next year. Any idea if Liverpool have any interest in him?

newposition

{Ed001's Note - we had interest in the past, and it is very likely he will move this summer, but I believe our interest is dead at the moment.}


1.) 31 Mar 2016 05:48:54
How the friggin hell have Dortmund let Micky get so close to being out of contract? That's risky on their part. Maybe it's the player who didn't want to enter into negotiations as he wanted to see what else was out there? Oozes finesse and scores a lot of goals from midfield easily a £30 million player if not more. Would walk into any team in the world I think, that's how highly I rate him. Gutted we missed the boat there. Then again Rogers would have played him at right back and destroyed the fella.

{Ed001's Note - it is the agent more than the player.}


2.) 31 Mar 2016 05:59:22
same meat different gravy buttercup.

{Ed001's Note - not really, players with those kind of agents do not tend to get involved other than to sign things after it has all been agreed.}


3.) 31 Mar 2016 06:16:58
Thanks for the insight buttercup I didn't realize some agents had that much jurisdiction and autonomy of their clients.

{Ed001's Note - there are a lot of players that literally want nothing to do with any choices, they trust their agents to take care of it all. Personally I would suggest steering clear of any player who does so, as it shows that they are only considering earning money, rather than showing ambition to play for the teams best suited to bring them success.}

We should offer Chelsea a swap deal Costa for Beneteke!

There was paper talk over the summer that Mourinho wanted him but chelsea board didn't allow it. Costa would fit in better with the Liverpool style of play plus he is a 'hard man', we could do with one of those.

newposition

1.) 02 Dec 2015 01:03:14
You want a player who has already refused to join us and would rather return to Spain? Not for me.


2.) 02 Dec 2015 06:17:54
He's an idiot!


3.) 02 Dec 2015 08:34:07
I cannot believe any Liverpool fan would like to see Costa playing for us. Let alone the Liverpool players he has stamped on and kicked!


4.) 02 Dec 2015 09:41:07
Classical craziness.


5.) 02 Dec 2015 10:05:11
Why does Benteke get such a harsh deal of our fans? I think he is a very good, strong player. His goals to games is not bad for someone who's had injuries since joining us and coming into a new team. Given a pre season with the team I fully expect Big Ben to be a completely different player under guidance of a good manager in Klopp.

Baz.


6.) 02 Dec 2015 11:39:23
Just look at his goals. He can create something from nothing. His goal against them was spectacular.


7.) 02 Dec 2015 12:02:10
Quick someone send for a (head) Doctor 😂.


8.) 02 Dec 2015 12:05:36
Costa looks like a pug.


9.) 02 Dec 2015 12:31:18
Costa is brilliant but no thanks, he's a thug and will just cause the club problems not unlike Suarez.
More than happy with benteke right now.


10.) 02 Dec 2015 13:49:54
Costa is such a brilliant striker he can score even with his back to target as he had shown last week.


11.) 02 Dec 2015 13:55:55
Shake head in disbelief 😧.


12.) 02 Dec 2015 15:59:47
i would rather have benteke, his injuries have stopped him showing his best form and i think once he gets fully fit he will be a top scorer for us.


13.) 02 Dec 2015 16:13:10
Eds do I win the prize for most down voted comment! No one agrees with me! Fair enough, pretty controversial I guess, though in all the criticisms no one actually says that Costa is not the better player.

Some interesting opposing views:

"I cannot believe any Liverpool fan would like to see Costa playing for us. Let alone the Liverpool players he has stamped on and kicked! " - I assure you I am a true red and was chuffed when we signed Paul Ince back in the day despite him having kicked plenty of our players whilst playing for Utd.

Also I agree Costa is a bit of a thug, as was pointed out above so was Suarez and if it isn't too sacrilegious so was Gerrard. Doesn't anyone think we might be a bit too polite as a team at the moment?

I am not putting Benteke down I like him and agree with time he should improve under Klopp but I do think Costa is better and suits our pressing and short passing game . Anyway all a bit academic as its never going to happen.

Anyway love the site and the nuggets of info the Eds give out. YNWA.


14.) 02 Dec 2015 23:31:46
Costa is an excellent striker imo!
Would i want him at lfc? Not in a million years. Personally i cannot stand his antics and thus would find it really hard to support him. He would disrupt the team, be too self important and get red cards for fun and sulk like a child when the manager would inevitably have to attack his attitude.


15.) 02 Dec 2015 18:07:49
Benteke has done well for us so far, scored different types of goals and gives us a threat in the air.


16.) 03 Dec 2015 18:55:16
Benteke is ok not going to set world on fire but outside of a Barcelona trio and a Bayern Munich and Man City one each, who is?! Certainly not the "thug pug" (steeling a mix of the quotes above)!


17.) 06 Dec 2015 04:11:04
benteke is quality like most when 100% fit but he just a cog on the lfc machine, i mean when all fit our strike force is really quite awesome, sturridge = world class n very all round striker, benteke=top class at mo but very differant to studge, ings= proper fox in box type who will just keep getting beta, origi= raw talent but still only 19/20 but we all caught a glimpse of what is in there, firmino= quote heir Klopp here " the perfect complete striker, can play any forward roll well, my point here is we just might the best strike force at mo for any given game/style we wanna utilise, correct me if I'm wrong but all other top clubs in prem have 2 top strikers at best we got 3 top class 2 on there way that's b4 our loanees n youngsters, every happy wi our situ'


 

 

28 Nov 2015 21:43:26
Mignolet - Clyne, Škrtel, Lovren, Moreno - Can, Milner, Allen - Ibe, Lallana - Benteke from that guy on Twitter who seems to get it right more often than not.

newposition

1.) 28 Nov 2015 22:37:41
No Coutinho or Firmino? i'd be surprised with that line up.


2.) 29 Nov 2015 00:50:17
I would be surprised too - thought I would post it anyway! Firmino looked knackered on Thursday though.


3.) 29 Nov 2015 03:38:09
Coutinho did pick up that little knock last weekend, maybe making sure he doesn't pick up something more serious.


4.) 29 Nov 2015 07:15:06
Over the next 2 weeks, we have 5 games with trips all the way south to Southampton, all the way north east to Newcastle as well as a trip to Switzerland. If there is a little niggle, I can understand Coutinho being rested but Klopp is not one to rest players with little niggles, so could be a tactical decision and management.


5.) 29 Nov 2015 09:02:50
More surprised by no Lucas!


6.) 29 Nov 2015 09:21:01
Lucas is suspended.


7.) 29 Nov 2015 09:22:19
Lucas is suspended having picked up his 5th yellow against Man City last weekend.


8.) 29 Nov 2015 09:45:41
Or he knows were at home and there is a huge chance Swansea will sit ten men on there 18 line which makes the city style obsolete!

We will play up to big ben today I think.


9.) 29 Nov 2015 09:47:56
Lucas is suspended.


10.) 28 Nov 2015 21:56:38
No Firmino or Coutinho? I can see Firmino rested, but I worry Coutinho is injured?


 

 

15 Jun 2015 14:38:23
From my friend the Saints Fan: Apparently Clyne agreed terms with Liverpool but due to their lowball offers when they thought they were the only team in the running Saints have rejected.

Now Man U back in, since Alves signed new contract with Barcelona. Man U is Clynes preferred deal so he is hanging on.

He`s not that good and if Shaw is anything to go by, they can have him


3.) 16 Jun 2015 09:21:38
Sounds about right.Sóton are tough to buy from though.Look how they got all that money out of us for Lovren and Lallana last season and did we improve them as players or get the best out of them ? Certainly not. Maybe Sóton had a better manager and coaching staff than us.

Phil Thompson in the Echo today saying he would love to have Diego Costa on our team. I said this about six months ago on here and got a torrent of abuse, "how could a Liverpool fan think that etc. " well I feel justified today!
Bring on the abuse.

newposition

1.) 16 Sep 2016 15:59:32
No doubt he's a great player . he's just a massive tool!

{Ed001's Note - why is it justified now Thommo has said it anyway?}


2.) 16 Sep 2016 16:33:53
Thommo saying it does the opposite of proving you correct! This is the guy who told us Sanchez was nailed on to sign!


3.) 16 Sep 2016 17:12:56
I saw a few Liverpool fans choosing Costa or Hazard as the player they would take from Chelsea. I can't see why everyone's answer wouldn't be Kante. Regardless of how many CM's we have, he is the best in the holding position in the league by a mile.


4.) 16 Sep 2016 17:28:30
I would take Kante over any of Chelsea`s other players.


5.) 16 Sep 2016 17:29:53
The same Thompson who helped get rid of fowler? Good drivers Don't always make good mechanics.


6.) 16 Sep 2016 17:45:02
MK how is that relevant?


7.) 16 Sep 2016 18:36:35
I wouldn't really use Thompson as any kind of validation as his opinion has been let's say suspect over the years. A nation might vote in donald trump into presidency in a few months time, however it does not mean their decision would have been a good one. So by voting in a massive tool would that validate that he is right for the job or that a lot of people had a suspect opinion or notion? Just a poser.


8.) 16 Sep 2016 18:54:51
I remember we wanted him to replace Suarez and approached him. Everyone thought it would be a great signing.
He's a good player, he's no Suarez but he's dangerous.
He has an edge which opposition fans like to hate him for, that's natural, but there's no denying when he's up for it he's a dangerous player.


9.) 16 Sep 2016 19:37:00
The same Phil Thompson who allegedly wasn't convinced that Ronaldo was worth half a million signing on fee, regardless of that is 100% correct or not I don't rate Thompson as a coach or judge of player.


10.) 16 Sep 2016 20:47:10
Hazard.


 

 

13 Apr 2016 14:33:14
Coutinho nominated for young player of the year.

Young Player of the Year nominees: Alli, Barkley, Butland, Coutinho, Kane and Lukaku

Utd fans no doubt upset about absence of Martial.

Well done Couts!

newposition

1.) 13 Apr 2016 14:57:23
Ali as just turned 20, first year in prem and full national call up.


2.) 13 Apr 2016 15:08:40
Personally, I would agree that Alli or Kane are probably favourites.

However, a big round of applause for PipCo for the nomination!


3.) 13 Apr 2016 15:20:23
I suspect Kane or Alli will win but I'd rather have Coutinho in my team.


4.) 13 Apr 2016 15:30:50
Got to be Kane I reckon.


5.) 13 Apr 2016 16:00:39
Pretty sure Ali wouldn't make the Brazil squad.

{Ed001's Note - obviously, as he doesn't qualify to play for Brazil....}


6.) 13 Apr 2016 16:58:43
deli alli is nailed on to win that award, no question, it is nice that the little magician has been nominated, don't know why the utd fans are getting upset, they should be used to disappointment by now, in fact I am creating my own award, most deluded manager in the premier league, its currently a tie between lvg and Roberto Martinez.


7.) 13 Apr 2016 17:02:06
Dele Alli is the stand out - first season in prem, still young (unlike Coutinho who is almost 24! Not that young for a football player) and has performed above and beyond expectations. He'd be a deserving winner.


8.) 13 Apr 2016 17:30:30
It's not usually the youngest player that wins usually it's the big names for example sterling didn't win it hazard did. Personally I'd expect coutinho to win it as he's the best footballer on the list.


9.) 13 Apr 2016 17:38:17
Alli, hands down. Kane is already a known quantity.


10.) 13 Apr 2016 18:46:27
Alli all day long for me.


11.) 13 Apr 2016 19:58:09
Alli, first season in the prem, and a pretty outstanding one, and is a few years younger than couts and Kane. Although I think Kane's the best player named on the list, got everything a striker needs.


12.) 14 Apr 2016 08:16:53
Think this award is fairly unfair, you shouldn't be able to be in the main and young player catagory and you shouldn't be able to win twice in a row - it's an award that should be dedicated to the best of the players breaking through as much as some arbitrary age barrier. Kane shouldn't be allowed in it.


 

 

11 Apr 2016 04:58:32
What a plonker Ibe is. Klopp clearly is aware of what he can do so if he doesn't pick him he just needs to try harder. wonder if he will be the next Liverpool youngster to hire Aidy Ward.

I guess we should be supporting Arsenal today as Spurs are one of the challengers for 4th?

I hope they both lose.


2.) 08 Nov 2015 16:48:29
Couldn't agree more with TJ!

However, on balance, I would rather a draw or Spurs win. Arsenal are only 8 points ahead and I'm not giving up on anything until maths are against us.

4th is 3rd loser.

I wonder if Harry Redknapp will now concede that Klopp has had an effect.

newposition

1.) 31 Oct 2015 16:13:31
Don't know what it got to do with Redknapp.

I thought that Harry was playing down the hysteria of his appointment, which to be honest, is a wise judgement which we can all use to our advantage.

The new manager should be allowed to get on with his game without all the crap that goes with it.

We need someone top drawer to partner Matip, am convinced its not Lovren and unfortunately Sakho has ruined his chances with Klopp. I hope Gomez will get there but his injury and inexperience mean that that's at least 18 months away. I doubt we will go for Van Dijk, irrespective of ability, but due to cost surely Klopp will be looking at the Bundeslige again for a partner for Matip.

We will never be able to buy ready made superstars. We will only have top level players by developing them. However, we are able to pay superstar wages so we should do everything we can to hold onto the ones we are lucky/ clever enough to have.

That's the big problem for Sturridge IF he wants to leave none of the teams that traditionally finish above us would want him. I can't see him going to a West Ham or similar. Maybe he'll go abroad.

I was wondering that this morning as I imagine Gabriel Jesus will take his place in City's first team. Can't imagine Aguero hanging around for that, would Liverpool be interested? Like you say I think he probably doesn't suit Klopps style. As I understand it Guardiola has questioned his pressing ability.

There is also the fact that they are inheriting squads that have been in the top 4 pretty much every one of the previous ten seasons so by definition these squads only need tweaking. Liverpool's average position over the last seven seasons is actually between 6th and 7th suggesting the need for bigger changes either by buying new players or improving the current players through training both of which will take longer.
These wholesale changes seem to have been going on ever since Souness took over the last Liverpool team to win the league title.
