Good day Eds.

Sorry about throwing in a random name, but have we or any other team looked at Youri Tielemans of Anderlecht. Been following the Belgian league and saw him in the Champions League. Very composed for a 17 year old. 18 tomorrow.

I feel he has the potential to be one of the best in his age range in the coming years.

Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - Lots of interest from clubs but not Liverpool.}

1.) 07 May 2015 05:50:16
Hasn't he agreed to join Atletico?

2.) 07 May 2015 06:24:56
Has he agreed to go to Barca in 2016? Saw that on another forum.

I'm probably the only one that wants Man. Utd to draw/ win tomorrow. Would rather have them drop points elsewhere than have 2 teams on 56 points, just one behind us.
Good performance by the team today.
TAA is the player I really like though. I know Ed01 has said his future is in midfield, but I really like him playing as a full back. If we don't get a RB during the transfer window, I won't be displeased.


1.) 24 Feb 2018 18:24:25
I agree with you mate, I want a draw too.

2.) 24 Feb 2018 18:59:03
Without a doubt we want a draw tomorrow. Jose tends to draw with the better teams so we have a good chance of them getting the result WE want.

3.) 24 Feb 2018 19:18:39
Usual hope : mass brawl in the tunnel, both teams fined and docked 10 points, players banned for rest of season.

Otherwise I’m not fussed 👍.

4.) 24 Feb 2018 19:46:20
City are heading that way fingers crossed. Sorry, always want united to lose. ALWAYS!

5.) 24 Feb 2018 19:46:21
That or meteor storm Ron!

6.) 24 Feb 2018 20:04:29
Maybe one day hey Ron. You can live in hope. Draw will be good but can see Chelsea nicking this one.

7.) 24 Feb 2018 20:32:14
It’s a horrible outcome either way.

I simply cannot ever envisage wanting Utd to win, unless it somehow helped us win a trophy.

Chelsea are just the blue Man U.

A draw would be best for us. with a couple of red cards each, particularly for DDG as he’s been like a smegging octopus for them against us recently!

8.) 24 Feb 2018 21:15:40
A draw is the ONLY result that would help us. A win for either side does not help us. Also, we need Spurs to screw up as well.

{Ed025's Note - liverpool just need to focus on what they are doing and forget other teams doing you any favours..

9.) 25 Feb 2018 01:33:35
Never want a united win, EVER.

10.) 24 Feb 2018 22:04:50
Again, agreed 100% ed025. I think if Liverpool can win 7/ 8 of our remaining 10 games we finish top 4, probably 2nd or 3rd. If we draw rather than lose the games we don't win I think it will be the difference that sees us finish 2nd.

I really feel if Southampton had sold Vvd in the summer we would be easily 2nd and not too far off City.

I will be disappointed if liverpool don't finish 2nd and make semi finals of ucl. Now that IS progress, all of a sudden people are talking about Liverpool and saying we can beat anyone over 2 legs and we have the ability to win ucl.

I was a bit disappointed that last summer we still failed to land some top targets despite us qualifying for ucl as we (to quote Danny Mills) "are not a big club" we ain't going to win the league this year but as long as we qualify for ucl next year I don't think we are going to have that same trouble. We simply must finish top 4. If we do and we keep all current players I think we will win the league next season.

Klopp has learned from last season. Last term we blew out by january/ February. This year he has rotated and kept the top boys fit. Fair play Jurgen, top man, top manager.

{Ed025's Note - liverpool are a very strong side SS and with a couple of additions i too believe they will be vying for the league next season, a top keeper and a quality playmaker and the world is your lobster mate..

11.) 24 Feb 2018 22:05:39
I agree Ed, 2nd is there if we do our job, as we still have both teams to play.

{Ed025's Note - very much so keith..

12.) 24 Feb 2018 22:58:04
Agreed ed0025.

13.) 24 Feb 2018 23:51:24
Agreed Ed025, a 0-3 humiliation would suit just fine. Several punctures moanrinho’s bus setting them up nicely for a defeat on away goals in UCL too. ⚽️🙏👌.

{Ed025's Note - the way i see it only de gea out of united,s team gets in the liverpool side 68, the reds are a top team whereas united are 11 individuals who play together, i just hope you dont pay them any respect and go to old trafford with the mindset of winning mate..

14.) 25 Feb 2018 08:34:49
Suspect it will be a draw which suits me. If it means we gain 2 points on Chelsea then great.

Also hoping we can deal with Newcastle and play brilliantly at Old Trafford and get a famous win.

15.) 25 Feb 2018 08:43:00
Hope so to buddy and agree De Gea would make us real title contenders, he’s carried the other 10 on his back for season after season.

16.) 25 Feb 2018 14:24:21
All I want is 3 points vs newcastle!



14 Feb 2018 22:20:06
Not saying we'll win the UCL, but I think we're the best team in Europe in one-off matches and that's what you need to win the UCL.
I can see us going further than the QFinals.


1.) 14 Feb 2018 22:36:56
On that performance we can go very far. So delighted with that result I didn't expect it at all, we showed we mean business tonight.

2.) 14 Feb 2018 22:39:54
Now, that was a welcome surprise. I did not know we could even score 2 at Porto w/ o conceding and we scored 5 (could have been more) w/ o conceding. Bravo to the boys, the away fans and the coaching staff for a job well done.

Now the great thing about this win and the score line is that we play Utd after the second leg so Klopp can actually rotate in the second leg so the boys can be ready for the trip to Utd that weekend as this tie, is pretty much done and dusted.

3.) 14 Feb 2018 23:14:38
You're right guys, we shortened our odds tonight, that's for sure.

4.) 14 Feb 2018 23:06:41
That's a great point actually BRover and I agree it could've been more tonight, we played them off the park. So chuft it's unreal.

5.) 15 Feb 2018 01:10:52
Our high press, lethal counter attacking football has the ideal ingredients for knockout football so there's definitely optimism when it comes to our chances of going far in this competition!

6.) 15 Feb 2018 02:38:54
I would urge caution, all this talk of resting players and the tie is done stuff. We have seen this season the jeckyl and hyde nature of this team. Porto should not be taken lightly and we should show them their due respect in the second leg. We play our full strenght team on the night and see who is left standing for the United game.

7.) 15 Feb 2018 04:37:46
Ye we should still bring a professional approach to the 2nd leg. Porto aren't a pub team after all. Also think we should pump the breaks on crowning ourselves "best of" or "best in" anything. We've not earned anything yet. in with a shout of course, but until we do it again and again we don't deserve that kind of accolade.

8.) 15 Feb 2018 05:32:09
It is surely common sense, with 5 away goals, to rest a few key players and give some fringe players the chance to impress - especially given we have a key game against United at the weekend? If Klopp plays a full strength side and, say, Salah or Firmino gets injured fans will bemoan him for not resting players. The result gives us the luxury of rotation, its not about lack of respect, its about being smart and makuing sure our key players are available for an important league game. Also did you honestly see anything from Porto to suggest they will overturn a 5 goal deficit?

{Ed0333's Note - I suspect Solanke, Ings, Gomez, Lallana, Milner, Moreno will play with a strong bench. I wouldn’t play the 3 offensive titans from the start.

9.) 15 Feb 2018 08:32:43
I'd be fine with that, give the players a chance to shine and rest the key players for the bigger test. I can't believe some posters object to this to be honest.

10.) 15 Feb 2018 09:18:01
Not a hope in hell FC Porto will score 6 in Anfield even with a weakened Liverpool team.

11.) 16 Feb 2018 07:15:23
I rekon let mane play, feel like he needs the rhythm.



07 Jan 2018 10:37:37
Not blaming FSG/ Klopp/ Anyone, but I wish we'd signed Coutinho's replacement before selling him.
I feel it may be a little bit difficult now to sign him, with everyone assuming there's loads of cash to spend and asking "unreasonable" prices for their players.
Just throw money at Schalke for Meyer/ Goretzka. Those would be my ideal replacement.


1.) 07 Jan 2018 10:54:03
Meyer, Goretzka might be Summer targets. You forget that the players are letting their contracts run down so they can negotiate deals themselves. It doesn't matter what we offer Shalke, the player can still choose to see out his contract and claim a bigger signing on bonus.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 12:04:38
Disappointing thing is the club as known the Couts situation for quite a while. A replacement should have already been sourced.

3.) 07 Jan 2018 13:17:57
We knew months ago we were getting a big wad of cash for Coutinho, why do you think any selling clubs wouldn't know that? They were putting a premium on any player, regardless of it being before or after the Coutinho sale.

4.) 07 Jan 2018 15:39:51
And who would have sold us that replacement in Jan, Reusch knowing fully well that clubs do not set up their system to sell their best player in Jan (which is what it would take to get a decent replacement for Cou) esp. in a WC year?



06 Jan 2018 20:34:51
For those that have seen Lemar play, d'you think he's the ideal replacement for Coutinho?
I think what we'll miss the most from Coutinho is his creativity. I'm tempted to agree with Ed02 that Meyer is the ideal replacement because he's also able to play the central midfield role and is quite creative.
But seeing as Lemar is the replacement, is he ideal?


1.) 06 Jan 2018 20:47:43
Meyer can sign a pre contract as can Goretzka, I’m hoping over course of now and summer both are signed as well as Lemar. We are losing/ lost Coutinho and Can so need reinforcements. With Milner likely leaving too this summer, you could argue there’s a case for Cabellos (spelling) too.

We also have Keita arriving too.



25 Nov 2017 19:28:40
Not the ideal result, but we're the only ones to have played the other 5 teams in the top 6 and we're 6 points behind second place.
What we need now is to win consistently.


1.) 25 Nov 2017 19:43:57
B. S. keep thinking that if you want. We have massive massive problems in midfield, defence and goalkeeper.

When we have these problems I wouldn't care if we were 3 points ahead we are not getting top four this year.

And I can't see us getting what we need in Jan.

2.) 25 Nov 2017 19:56:32
Massive problems. calm down geez.

3.) 25 Nov 2017 20:01:55
Wow, Davey. I understand your frustration BUT you are overdoing it, mate. Had we gotten 3 points today, you would be happy and would not be saying that you don't care if we got 3 points or not so I know that crap is BS. Also By the logic in your post, we might as well pack it in and not bother turning up for the next game with that defeatist attitude of yours.

4.) 25 Nov 2017 20:04:37
Is it Davey Sulls or Davey Sulks? Either way we ended up not winning because the current champions scored from a lucky cross. If we beat Barcelona 5-1 you are the kind who would just bitch about how bad we are because messi scored a wonder goal.

5.) 25 Nov 2017 20:10:30
We do have massive problems.

Mignolets left hand, Mignolet right hand, Mignolets left foot and Mignolets right foot.

In all seriousness though, Salah was the only player who played well today.

We would've gotten away with it, if it wasn't for that Mignolet kid.

6.) 25 Nov 2017 20:19:48
Couldnt care less what ye think lads. Sorry.

We won't do anything with a bunch of top class wingers, no. 10s and Joe Gomez. They are amazing but they simply won't carry the rest to top four.

It's just too much weight.

7.) 25 Nov 2017 20:26:11
I don’t think salah was the only player. We defended better as a unit but had our usual scary moments. I think Ox has to play more forward or he is wasted.

Poor Milner was lost though, I needn’t say more.

But Moreno/ Gomez were good, and will only continue to improve. I’m just disappointed we drew to a goal of that lack of quality. Still a lot to play for this season!

8.) 25 Nov 2017 20:28:04
You are blaming Mignolet for the goal MK? I thought it was an excellent chip myself!

9.) 25 Nov 2017 20:40:14
Watch it again rover. His footwork was horrible, was like he had no idea were the posts were.

10.) 25 Nov 2017 20:49:40
Right. I overstepped the mark with one comment when I said I could care less what ye think. I read the site everyday and I'm always intrigued by the insight of fellow reds.

I'm sticking with everything else though. It would be a miracle if the forwards can Carry the rest to top four.

Surely now is the time for Ward. I would love to see him get crack.

Mignolet shod have saved that. His slow feet cost us again.

Henderson was awful.

Klavan a bag of nerves.

Moreno and Matip were decent but they 'll haunt us in another game.

Milner can't pass.

Wijnaldum just far too inconsistent.

Lovren is having a mare of a season.

I mean honestly. I know our forwards are class but they can't carry them. I HOPE they do but can't see it.

We urgently need a dm gk and cb. That is critical.

11.) 25 Nov 2017 21:33:01
So just to clarify, Davey. Same old doom and gloom with the typical self defeating attitude from your initial post and now this one. Roger that, mate!

12.) 25 Nov 2017 21:34:34
MK, I agree with you that Migs could have shuffled his feet better and would have had a better chance at reaching the ball cos w/ o shuffling his feet, he got 3 fingers on the ball. Had he actually moved them quicker, he prolly would have gotten a much fuller fist to the ball. Oh well, we move on as frustrating as it is.

13.) 25 Nov 2017 22:24:26
But Davey, if we were that bad why did Chelsea not hammer us . Plus Migs did make 3 good saves to keep us in the game . and yes we should bring in another keeper, but that won't happen till next summer .
I do feel that when Chelsea brought on their 3 attacking players, we should have went 5 at the back, they were going for our left side a lot .
I don't think this was the game to introduce Lallana back after nearly 4 months out,
I also think that we should have started with Mane, Milner was a bit lost in midfield .
having said all that, we could and should have hung on for the 3 points .
I don't think that we used our subs the best way,
but we were only 5 mins away from a massive win .

14.) 25 Nov 2017 23:49:35
Taxi for migs, lovren, moreno, hendo, and sturridge.
Sure I'll be slated but these players are just not good enough in my opinion.

15.) 26 Nov 2017 03:21:32
I think we need to put karius or ward in ASAP. Right now i don’t think either is better than migs and they will make mistakes of their own. My hope is they will learn from them and hopefully by season end or even next season will be better than migs is right now. Migs had 4 years to improve and is still making the same errors as he was day 1.

16.) 26 Nov 2017 04:39:51
tj red. "defended well as a unit but had ouy usual scary moments" your contradicting yourself in the same sentence.

17.) 25 Nov 2017 21:09:29
Agree totally - other than salah and a good goal lfc were poor tonight. A jumbled selection consisting of several who are just not up to scratch produced a disjointed performance with little creativity (salah apart) . klopp may have got away with it tonight . just.

18.) 25 Nov 2017 21:13:53
Also Peterm, please don't call me David sulks again.

At first I saw it as a low level dig but it grew 😀.

19.) 25 Nov 2017 22:47:33
Happy, Klopp said in his post match comments, that he was trying to bring Lallana and Mane on earlier so we can go 5 at the back (I guess with Klavan, Gomez and Matip in a back 3 with Milner and Moreno as wing backs) BUT the ref kept delaying and delaying then the goal came for Chelsea hence, Klopp's ire.

I disagree that he did not use his subs well. Like Sevilla, the changes he made there and today was spot on. People are simply looking at changes as a zero-sum issue as in, if we win then the changes worked. If we did not win then the changes did not work. That is a very shallow way of looking at football. Klopp brought on Wiji to strengthen the midfield. You have to see the intent behind the changes being made so you can judge the thinking behind it and on that front, Klopp's intention was very understandable and cos we did not win does not, mean the subs were wrong. That is simplistic thinking.

On the goal, the defence actually did its job to force Willian well wide and then w/ o looking up he just chipped in a cross to the back post where Alonso and Morata were and it went in. Frustration BUT we move on.

20.) 26 Nov 2017 07:49:33
Swisch, Karius is light years ahead of Migs in every level of theGK position and that much is clear esp. after his brilliant perf. vs Sevilla where his saves at 1-0 allowed us to go 3 nil up and his overall performances this season have been encouraging. The fact that he is not playing right now is down to Klopp's mismanagement of the GK position and per Ed01, the fact that he is afraid that the fans will turn on Karius again if he makes a mistake. I disagree with that BUT I understand it. In the end tho, Klopp has to act cos Migs will hurt us again this season. That much is clear.

Barcelona bidding at 7:30 would be interesting though. 15 mins before kickoff, with the players wondering if he would be sold before the end of the 1st half. Lol.

I doubt we can get Donnarumma Ed01. Wouldn't he be crazy expensive? Like €100m expensive or something insane like that?
Secondly, I believe it would be difficult to sign an "acceptable" left back. There are very few who understand that as defenders, they're meant to defend first.


{Ed001's Note - his contract is running down, he would have been available for a reasonable price.}

Ox and VVD. 90m wasted if we get both. Just go all out for Mendy and prepare for next season.

Can isn't as good defensively as Casemiro, or as technically brilliant as Kroos or Modric.
However, I think he will bring a different dynamism to Madrid's midfield. Anyone that thinks he won't play IMO is simply bitter.
Emre is good, he will play.
Him leaving though doesn't disturb me much. With the way Ox has played and with Naby coming in, I'm comfortable.
The player we need to get a backup for, is Henderson. He's the one we miss when he isn't there.
If we get a Jorginho or similar type player, then we're good. And then a Meyer/ Lemar type to play in the midfield 3 or the attacking 3.
Instead of being bitter about Emre, let him go where he chooses and hope he plays well. Let's focus on those that will stay in the club.

I think Messi is more talented. However, Ronaldo's dedication and focus - to me - has taken him over Messi in the past couple of years.
When Zidane won the best player award in 2003, I remember Gattuso saying it was undeserved and Zidane only won on talent, which means Maradona should've been the best for every year he played.
Talent has to translate to success. Ronaldo IMO is the best and most decisive player for now.
But for who's the best all time, neither is my number 1, 2 or 3. They are equals - on the same level.

Bergkamp - favorite player ever. Highly intelligent
Henry - there was a period where he was simply unplayable
Agger - composed, brilliant timing when defending, scored some nice goals
Okocha - I'm a Nigerian, being patriotic. But he was fun to watch
P. Schmeichel - one of the best keepers ever. For me, the best of the premier league era.

Rafa Benitez as the favorite Liverpool boss.

I'm more of a Bayern Munich fan than a Liverpool fan really. First team I saw and fell in love with.
I think Henyckes built the best Bayern team I ever saw, but the Bayern team that won the champions league in 2001 is my favorite ever.
Difficult to choose between Ottmar Hitzfeld and Juup Henyckes, but I think I'll go with Henyckes.
