Hi Eds. I read a report stating that LFC was in talks with Hannover over loaning one of our strikers. I would have thought it would have been Ings, but just read something else saying it could be Woodburn. Any news from your side?

{Ed001's Note - no sorry I haven't heard anything about that.}

1.) 08 Aug 2017 16:33:27
ok, Ed001. Thanks.

2.) 08 Aug 2017 17:52:29
Isnt Woodburn 17? i thought you had to be 18 to move abroad on loan.

3.) 08 Aug 2017 18:10:37
It was reported to be a loan deal for Kent however, Klopp may have ended that alleged deal and Kent will be kept.

You can add Zeca, Brazilian left-back 23 years old, to the list of LBs being linked with us. Plays for Santos and has featured for the Brazil U20s and the recent Olympic Gold winning team. Is right footed so he can play both on the left and the right. Super fast, athletic type, but a bit on the short smallish side for me (in the videos I saw) . But then, Roberto Carlos was even shorter, so what do I know. Seems to be a very offensive minded player.

Probably just a case of the agent creating waves and interest in his client in Europe, and everyone and their grandma knows we're in the market for LBs.

Only zika we're getting is the virus.



07 Jun 2017 22:41:04
And on a side note, stories in the media are out that Lucas Leiva has had discussions with his original club, Gremio in Brazil, and will probably go back and play with them next year. If that is the case, I thank him for 10 years of sterling, loyal service and wish him all the best for his remaining career. There's always something special about players who knuckle down, give 100%, persevere, and just do their job despite all the drama and distractions, in the game. YNWA.

Hi Ed002. Do you have any information/news about Loris Karius, the goalkeeper from Mainz, as a transfer target for LFC? The source is twitter (and Essexred below), but since his name was lumped along with Sane and Gundogan on the tweet, I thought I would ask you the question. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I would rather not answer questions from Twitter but at least you were honest where it came from. Mainz's Loris Karius has been previous linked with interest from Benfica, Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal, Schalke and Valencia - but it is Aston Villa who are looking for a January move. Previously played for Manchester City.}

1.) 13 Nov 2015 12:24:53
Thanks Ed.

Methodical. Clinical. Deadly. And Mo Salah does indeed have a right foot, despite assurances to the contrary.

1.) 17 Mar 2018 22:17:26
Ra1969 and if Real or Barcelona want Salah, they need not bother with trying to sign him cos his right foot alone, will be worth 145m (Cout type money) while for his left foot? They need not even apply.

2.) 17 Mar 2018 23:51:09
Salah is going nowhere this summer.

3.) 18 Mar 2018 09:16:01
BRover - I'm with Supersalah and don't think Salah is going anywhere this summer. All depends on what happens next season though and the summer after it. I try to focus only on the football, but we're all constantly reminded it's a business too. If you look into the past 2 decades or so, almost all "world class" players have passed through either Real Madrid or Barcelona at some point (whether successfully or not) . Just the way it is.



17 Mar 2018 11:59:35
I'm all for motivating players and propping up their confidence after long injuries. But Klopp calling Lallana "one of England's top 3-4 players" is a little bit over the top, I think. And doesn't speak too highly of the England team standards, either.

{Ed001's Note - he was England's best player, as voted for by the fans. Hardly over the top, he plays much better for England.}

1.) 17 Mar 2018 12:04:42
He is an Everton supporter! Haha.

2.) 17 Mar 2018 12:08:41
Surprising then Ed001. I would have thought that players like Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Marcus Rashford, Jamie Vardy, Raheem Sterling, Jordan Henderson, John Stones would receive higher appreciation from the fans. Anyway, it is what it is. I wish he would play better for LFC if what you say is true (I have only seen highlights for England games in recent years) .

{Ed001's Note - he is outstanding usually for England to be fair to him.}

3.) 17 Mar 2018 12:10:45
I wonder where he rates Ox and Hendo.

4.) 17 Mar 2018 12:12:02
Klopp has merely done a Brendan when he talked up Sterling

When Lallana goes in the summer we will now get a great fee for him.

5.) 17 Mar 2018 12:15:16
Ed001 Does he play much better, or does he just look better in a poorer squad/ team? I really like lallana but can't see him staying past the summer.

{Ed001's Note - bit of both.}

6.) 17 Mar 2018 12:23:42
Jayden23 - I rate both Ox and Henderson above Lallana based on current form. Lallana's form last year was outstanding, but nothing close to it this year. Have no idea how he's done for England this year or how much he played. Nostradmus2.0 - Yes, haha, you real funny (spell your name right and then let's get to talking) .

7.) 17 Mar 2018 12:35:37
Ra cheers for the reply mate. But I actually meant where does Klopp rate Hendo and Ox as he's rated Lallana top 4. I agree though with what you're saying this season has been a no go for Lallana and in all fairness Hendo hasn't exactly faired much better. If we're talking just this season then Ox has had the better one. If we're talking all players fit and on form then for me it's Lallana first then Hendo then Ox.

8.) 17 Mar 2018 13:44:48
Jayden23. Ooops, sorry about that. I thought you were referring to me. But I will disagree with you on one point. Even when fully fit I rate Henderson above Lallana. Hendo is the glue that keeps that midfield together. And we saw it clearly against ManU because that's what we were missing the most. People have been ranting about those 2 errors, but we had more possession, more attempts at goal. What was missing was the launchpad of passes and creative play that Hendo provides and which improves the quality of those attempts at goal. Lallana may be capable of the same creativity but there's been little sign of it in recent times. I really hope Klopp adjusts his rotation to enable Hendo to play both games against ManC in the UCL.

9.) 17 Mar 2018 14:13:29
No worries Ra all entitled to our opinions. In fairness the team are in the quarter finals of the CL and have torn teams apart this season and are pushing for second without that glue. I appreciate Hendo but I don't think he is as important as some people make out.

10.) 17 Mar 2018 14:40:02
I think Klopp is just hoping that Lallana will get more game time with England, and then a better price should he leave, there is more room in midfield at international level, so Lallana just might play better then .

11.) 17 Mar 2018 17:00:12
I agree with klopp.

I am constantly miffed by lfc fans who seem to have forgotten how good lallana was so last season. He was our best English player along with Hendo. Lallana, fully fit, is a fantastic player. Better than deli Ali easily.

12.) 17 Mar 2018 19:34:57
Well said SS, mentioned above Lallana is not in form/ AOC’s form is better. Pretty hard to be in form when he’s been injured for 6 months. Muppets.

Ahead of the new season and after a crazy transfer window, I wanted to extend sincere thanks to all the Eds (particularly Eds 001, 002, 007, 025 and 033) for their selfless work on this page. It's a thriving global community and always a pleasure to be part of (but I still want a kiddies corner page for certain posts and posters) . Many thanks again.

{Ed025's Note - your welcome ra..

Ahead of the new season, I wanted to express my sincere thanks to all the Eds (particularly Eds 001,002,007,025 and 033) for all the hard selfless work they do. It was an exciting season and a crazy summer. This is a thriving global community, and it's a great pleasure to be part of it. (But I still want a "kiddies corner" for certain posts and posters. Does anyone use the word nincompoop anymore? "The nincompoop pit" sounds really good. Three bans and all your posts automatically go into the pit. And then you have to grovel and plead with Ed002 to be let back in to the main page. 😁)

{Ed001's Note - nice thinking ra!}

1.) 01 Sep 2017 12:37:36
Please, make Harry the Editor for the nincompoop pit Ed001 πŸ˜‚.

{Ed001's Note - he will be the main contributor.}

The Harry and friends page? πŸ˜‚.



30 Aug 2017 17:28:38
Owen Hargreaves:

"Liverpool are close to it [being title winners]. The development since Klopp took over in October 2015 is similar to his time in Dortmund. There he won the Bundesliga title in his third year. The Premier League is very hard to win. You have to be a bit lucky too. But you also make your own luck. And Klopp works very hard with his players. You can't practice that [defending set-pieces well]. To be honest at Bayern we actually never really practiced them. You simply must have players who are unbeatable in the air".

{Ed025's Note - nice of him to say that ra, but he is such a tosser that no one really takes much notice of what he has to say mate..

1.) 30 Aug 2017 17:58:56
True I believe he said Everton will be a top 6 team so obviously he knows F all about football πŸ˜‚.

2.) 30 Aug 2017 19:23:31
With arsenals transfer window I think Everton could finish 6th.

3.) 30 Aug 2017 17:46:24
Have to say i agree with you ed025 the blokes an absolute yoghurt and his voice does my bloody head in! What nationality it he canadian german english? He fits in well on bt sport!

{Ed025's Note - well he speaks fluent garbage lee whatever county he hails from mate..

4.) 30 Aug 2017 17:50:39
Everton also are contendors to become the 4th best team in merseyside after lfc snr, rsrvs, trnmr rvrs😝😝.

{Ed025's Note - if we get a forward liverbird you may want to eat those words come may, your reserves never even threatened our boys in the U23 league last season so you tell a lot of porkie pies mate..

5.) 30 Aug 2017 18:28:15
Ed25 will be livid with you, Farno.

{Ed025's Note - i can take it bingo, my skin is thicker than an elephants mate and i have heard it all before, mainly from my own family..

6.) 30 Aug 2017 20:53:30
Hargreaves is not that bad. At least he doesn't have that shrill, nagging, pipsqueak voice of some of those better known others. As for the thick skin Ed025, I suggest you look at your gastronomic preferences, before blaming that obviously angelic family of yours, LOL.

LOL, TIA19. Calm down, friend. No need to get upset, and no harm intended. Don't take it personally. Just bantering a bit, that's all. But I appreciate your suggestion about the grammer police. I do love a uniform!

The man's name is Van Dijk. What's the need to mutilate people's names on here all the time? How difficult is it to look things up if you're not sure?

From his talking and body language he gives the impression of a very committed guy. I don't know, but that's what I see in his press conferences. He treats his time at LFC as a project and a revival. He's smart enough to know that reviving LFC (which he has started already) has far more value in footballing circles than going to a Real Madrid, Barcelona or PSG, and become just one in a series of managers for teams that rely mostly on money and marketing. He hides it well, but I think he has considerable pride and ego and won't leave until his goal is accomplished. I see him more being asked to leave (for example, if we mess up on the top 4 standard we seem to be setting) rather than him walking off for the big bucks.

Why are RBL difficult? They did nothing less than what any other club would do to hold on to their prized players. We did no less with Suarez and Coutinho. It's simple. Want somebody else's player? Pay the money. And it becomes easy.

I think Klopp wil give Matip another year before making a final decision. He only joined last year. Even though no transfer fee was paid for him, the club will probably expect in excess of 30Mil, and given this year's performances, I doubt there are many takers.

Great article, Ed001. If there was a vote for "the most influential man in football ever (throughout a lifetime) ", this man would get my vote. To my knowledge there is no other man who has influenced both during and post the onfield football career, more than Cruyff. Pele and Maradona were better players, but post the football career both have quietly moved into marketing gimmicks and mostly senseless predictions. But you're right about the arrogance. I remember the World Cup he sat out despite the team needing him. And he was regularly on the warpath with top brass at both Ajax and Barcelona. I guess genius has its quirks. Looking forwward to the second article.

{Ed001's Note - there is more to him missing the 78 World Cup. I will explain in full in the Legends of the Game article on him, but he did not just sit out despite the rumours at the time and the story put out that he was boycotting because of the Peron dictatorship.}

This is why Mourinho is hated by so many. He regularly shows that narcissistic megalomania that has, frankly, become really old insignificant news now. He is consistently blaming players (the list is long from Chelsea, to Real Madrid to Inter to ManU), referees, the media, and the fans. He even goes after ballboys and his own medical staff. He is the ultimate bully, who uses his position to talk people down and see things his way. His recent performances in press conferences are another reminder of all this, and I have no idea how the top brass at ManU are able to tolerate the gradual destruction of image and reputation of that club, on and off the field, brought on by this man. I bet you anything that LFC fans would go after Klopp viciously if he ever dared to answer a question about a loss with "what's the big, deal? It's happened before, and even I, with 3 other teams have defeated this club before". Good God, man! The club has been sent out of Europe's most important competition (by a lesser perceived club) and the manager is talking about his personal accomplishments, against his own club, with other teams! What hapened to loyalty and respect for the team that's paying you a hefty paycheck every week?

I think the organization, the players and the fans at ManU have conditioned themselves to accept Mourinho, simply because he's offered them a higher league position and one European trophy (which he never wanted) . Actually it's the money that he's spent that has gotten them this. It usually takes 2-3 years for a club to realize this (Chelsea did it twice) . And it will happen at ManU too. Mourinho is completely consistent in this.

I'm not sure I want Mane to be playing that role on a permanent basis. It'll work only if the fullback who is taking up his place, hasn't left a gaping hole on our defensive left side, and is being covered by another midfielder or Van Dijk. It's working okay thus far, considering we were not able to replace Coutinho last January. But I'd much rather have Mane on the receiving end of passes near or in the penalty box, rather than making them.

Thanks AJH. I'm not a Liverpudlian, but I support this club since decades. All I can say is that you're "sound" too.
