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.

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.

I'm not looking past Hoffenheim, but the worry is now whether Klopp will use Coutinho against Arsenal at Anfield. My guess is that he won't, simply because he hasn't been in training for so long. Wenger has already announced that Sanchez will be playing (let the mind games begin) .

What a start to the season. I can imagine the pressure on Klopp. Not getting the players he wanted (yet), UCL qualification, followed by Lallana out injured, followed by the Coutinho situation being up in the air.

1.) 21 Aug 2017 08:46:40
Who cares. Sanchez played both games last season and they still got smashed. We will get CL footie, Cou will stay and we will be ready for Arsenal as big games is what we do best while big games is what Arsenal do worst.



20 Aug 2017 16:33:00
After being asked if a certain amount had been offered for Coutinho, Klopp is supposed to have said " "They didn't offer that, we said no, yet they offered, I think tomorrow they will offer a McDonald's Happy Meal and we get the toy as well!? "

I don't get this at all. Where is this bravado and unjustified arrogance coming from? Can we have some titles and cups on display before we go around belittling and demeaning other teams? 80 Million, whether fair or not, is still a lot of money, and Barcelona is certainly a team to be respected regardless of what is happening today and their present circumstances. What's wrong with a simple "thanks, but no thanks"?

I really like the guy. I think he can deliver for LFC, and nothing irritates me more than Ed002 calling him a clown, sometimes. But, someone needs to screw in his head tight and tell him to be careful because "what goes around, comes around".

1.) 20 Aug 2017 16:47:25
If u are Barcelona fan go to camp nou.
This is anfield and lfc must not sell their best player.

2.) 20 Aug 2017 16:50:55
Stop talking like a neanderthal. You're lucky you have a forum to voice your gibberish.

3.) 20 Aug 2017 16:57:16
You talk of showing Barcelona respect, where is the respect from them, the offer is an absolute pi$$ take and they are once again trying to play us as fools. Respect is earned and so far they have shown us none!

4.) 20 Aug 2017 16:57:40
He does say a lot of silly things, but I think the amount of press managers and players get we are going to hear things that they later regret.

Imagine if you had someone listening to your every word and then sending it out to millions of people world wide.

5.) 20 Aug 2017 17:12:38
Le5d just get this right. Are you one of the fans who talk about Liverpool lowballing other teams and taking the piss

The mighty Barcelona just got 200 mil and want a player that we have absolutely no need to sell. The only reason we need to spend any extra this window would be to replace him. If he stays we can afford vvd without him going. They dropped the ball by letting the iniesta and neymar situation surprise them in the same window, even balague has said they dropped the ball.

They want that player this year so desperately with 2 weeks left then they pay the big bucks.

Let's just go with your scenario. Who do we replace him with, when we now have two weeks to go.

The only way it won't feel as bad is if we take them for a ton of cash.

Who do you support.

6.) 20 Aug 2017 17:15:08
Jordz - People like Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho (both of whom I dislike with extreme passion) talked with bravado, arrogance and an absurdly high sense of self-importance. But people listened because they could back up their words with the titles and trophies they had sitting behind them. Once again, Jurgen Klopp, for me, has the ability to bring us back to our "perch". But can we do it with class, dignity and respecting others in the same business? That's my point. You don't have to like or bow down to others (we have a rich enough history, pedigree and legacy), but let's not wander into the territory of all those loudmouths who mouth off whatever comes to mind just because we have a hundred microphones stuck in front of our faces.

7.) 20 Aug 2017 17:32:41
Capo - I'm assuming your reply is to my OP.
I'm one of those fans that does not want Coutinho sold at any price.
I'm one of those fans that'll be happy to see him finish off his contract at Anfield.
I'm one those fans that couldn't give a damn about what Barcelona has gotten or is giving in terms of money, this past summer.
I'm of those fans who's primarily concerned with getting players like Keita and VVD in (at fair market prices) before deadline day.
And I'm of those fans that prefers our manager to be respected (as much as the entire club) and to talk in a manner to be taken seriously. So that he can avoid having to say "Oh, we were in trouble were we? I didn't know anything about that at all" in subsequent pressers, as he has done already.
Now read my OP, and then read your reply. I was talking oranges, you replied with bananas and questioned my club allegiance. But I trust all is clarified. If not, reading a third or fourth time is still okay.

8.) 20 Aug 2017 18:03:57
I agree would be nice to do it with some class. Seems like it's missing out of todays game. Klopp's reputation has been this for a while even pre liverpool. It's not going to change mate.

Sadly the club is never going to be respected for a while due to things klopp has done with the tapping up and due to the way the we have handled transfers for years. Change and then time seems like the only thing that will fix that rep. Few titles would help too I guess :D.

9.) 20 Aug 2017 18:27:41
Why. Like all this bollocks recently about letting players leave sith grace. What a load of tosh. If there knackered and oaps then yes fine. Not in there prime though. Never heard anything so absurd.

If tomorrow firmino really wanted to join United, should we just have the good grace to honour his wish.

It doesn't matter where Barcelona play. That's surely the level we want to get to. Why would we give them a player that makes them stronger and us weaker, if we have any sort of aspiration to achieve anything.

If we take anything out of the whole Suarez situation it's DON'T SELL YOUR BEST PLAYERS.

10.) 20 Aug 2017 18:39:36
I dread to think what would have happened if the internet had been around in the days of Shankly, Busby and Clough! The internet would have exploded with all of the sensitive souls like you complaining about every little thing!



15 Aug 2017 22:19:35
The kind of wins that we need more of. A simple professional win. More men staying behind, instead of the mad rush forward that we see every time we get the ball, with 6 or 7 men blitzing forward leaving gaping holes behind. Nothing wrong with superfast counterattacks but it's enough with Mane, Salah and Firmino. Mane needs more time to readjust to that left wing, plus gain some fitness. I'm happy the customary one major error by Moreno per game, didn't lead to a goal. He did fine otherwise. Henderson seems a bit off and the body language while coming off at half time seems telling. Mignolet was as responsible as anyone else for winning that game.

And we have what is called a child prodigy in TAA. A lot of confidence and self belief for an 18 year old. With the right guidance and hard work he's going to turn out into something special. Good to see Solanke given a brief cameo too. The people who say Klopp doesn't give youngsters a chance need to re-examine their thought processes. With him it's simple - if you're good enough, you play. If you're not, then you don't play.

1.) 15 Aug 2017 22:42:52
Where you watching the same game? Professional? we where very lucky not to be 2/ 3 down at half time.
As for Moreno being fine? did you watch that game? he was clueless and shambolic in defence.

2.) 16 Aug 2017 00:24:22
Cobra - By professional I mean doing all the basics well, without anything spectacular. It was an away Champions League game with a partisan crowd so the conservative game plan worked well. If they were unlucky not to be 2/ 3 up by half time, then they were definitely lucky not to be 5/ 6 down by fulltime. Moreno is Moreno. But he has definitely improved since last year. Count the clearances he made versus the times he allowed an opposing attacker pass him by or him lunging at feet and finding only open air.

It's fine to disagree. It's football. But you can borrow my glasses for the next game. I have a spare pair. LOL.

3.) 16 Aug 2017 07:16:13
I agree with us having plenty of chances to make it 3-0 but I just can't see how you can be happy with that performance from Moreno? Granted he wasn't helped by Lovren but he was a walking disaster last night, he isn't a top flight footballer and should be nowhere near a team who has ambitions of winning trophies.



13 Aug 2017 23:26:59
Question for Ed001. Ed, how much of a destabilizing factor in the dressing room do you think the Coutinho situation has created already? My opinion is that it has already with maybe team morale going down enough and the resulting average performance against Watford. Your thoughts?

{Ed001's Note - anything like this always does, but this one is a particular problem as the comments coming out are bull about him having a problem with Klopp etc. The problems are being deliberately created to get him out now.}

1.) 14 Aug 2017 06:17:03
Ed, do you reckon that Barcelona are very implicitly behind any of this bull? Did they pressure Coutinho via Jaroobchian to hand in the transfer request?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know but I doubt they would have to.}



11 Aug 2017 23:11:29
For those suggesting Isco as a possible replacement for Coutinho, he's just signed a new contract extension at Real Madrid. Release clause of 700 Million Euros.

1.) 12 Aug 2017 03:39:57
A cheeky 30 million bid with Rafa as our coach in 2019 and it's done.

Supposedly the offer is for 80 Million with the remaining 36 Million as add-ons. And the 80 Million is not to be paid up front; maybe as much as over five years. So what's the point? Sell Coutinho and buy VVD or Kieta for almost the same amount? No wonder it got rejected immediately.

How much wrong is there in having a Pirlo or Scholes type player in your squad? A guy to spray pinpoint passes ahead of your runners (Mane and Salah) for a change, instead of expecting them to pick up the ball at the midfield point and run up the field with it? A guy with experience who doesn't need to start every game, but when you're faced with a team with lumbering giants as part of a parked bus, maybe you can stretch out that bus and pass over it? Lallana's out for 3 months and will need at least 1 month to get match fit. It's not so far fetched to bring in Rakitic and/ or the Ox.

Ed002, I saw nothing happened when 3 people asked the same question, one after the other. What happens if the same person asks for a third time? (This site has made my Sunday today, I tell you. I've been laughing from the moment I woke up) .
