Hi eds, any substance to the Stefan De Vrij rumours? All the papers seem to be linking him with us.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool making any approach to Lazio or to Sports Entertainment about de Vrij at this time. Right now he is still negotiating over his contract.}

1.) 16 Sep 2017 11:50:14
He is injury prone.

2.) 16 Sep 2017 14:26:23
Milner starts so he's not been dumped by Klopp.

3.) 16 Sep 2017 18:19:45
He is after De Vrij and will get him in January on the cheap.

I think Can is close now, player is keen, although his clubs aren't but I think he will force a move.

I have less confidence in our other reported targets. The longer Lallana drags on the less likely it is we will get him.

Can't understand why we were prepared to pay a premium for konoplyanka in Jan but seem to have lost interest now when he is available (and apparently keen to join us) for significantly less.

Bertrand is not an improvement on Flanno.

Caulker isn't an improvement on our current centre backs.

Lovren would be a good buy but can see us being frozen out by Southampton slapping on an inflated price.

We also need a forward to interchange with SAS but Sanchez and Pedro will be way above our budget.


1.) "Can't understand why we were prepared to pay a premium for konoplyanka in Jan but seem to have lost interest now when he is available (and apparently keen to join us) for significantly less."

Principle mate. None of us know what really happened.

2.) If we sold Aspas and Borini to raise funds, and got in Pedro, I think it would be in everyone's interests. Pedro would get more playing time, and play a more significant role, than the current incumbents in my view.

3.) Keep Borini, yes sell Aspas but keep Borini.

And I 100% agree Bertrand is not an improvement. City's first goal against villa was from zabaleta down the wing and he wasn't tracked - that was about the fourth time he had burst so far forward and Bertrand still wasn't watching him. Anyone saying the winger should have then I agree initially but when zabaleta kept pushing forward further than his own winger then it's up to Bertrand to take control and stop him. Also why wasn't Bertrand screaming for help with zabaleta, he clearly needed it.

4.) Bertrand is so poor it`s hilarious.

Eds, if the deal is complicated and we knew it would be a race against the clock to get Kono signed up, why have we left it until so late in the transfer window to start negotiations? I despair at our transfer policy. I'm beginning to think it's set up to fail and it's just a game of charades played by the owners to make fans believe they are serious aabout competing for top players. I'm not having a rant, it's how I genuinely feel. The Arsenals, Uniteds, and even Newcastles of this world don't find it as hard as us to wrap up business.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool had the heart set on Salah - Konoplyanka was not first choice. I am surprised you don't recall that.}

1.) Yes he was our No.1 target but even that was a mess. Chelsea secured him in a heartbeat while we faffed about for months. Today Arsenal have already signed a midfielder and Chelsea a defender. How come their transfers don't seem to get bogged down? They're obviously doing something we're not.

{Ed002's Note - Zouma has dragged on all month. I explained what happened with Salah.}

2.) Heart set on Salah? Not a criticism of you ed, but it didn't look like they did.

{Ed002's Note - Just a smokescreen no doubt.}

3.) Hi Redmist regarding Ed2's response, I think Liverpool will have made tentative contact with Yevhen Konoplyanka's agent. They would have had an idea as of the cost prior to bidding.
The same was with Salah, although the word is we didn't even get round to bidding. Sometimes the perceived price is a hinderance.

Committing to a target is just that, a commitment, and trying to play smart and bid on more than one player at a time, for same position can come back and bite you on the arse. You either end up not committing 100% and losing your primary target, because you are spread too thin or pissing other agents/targets/clubs off for playing them off, implying that their client isn't first choice and the player then feels insulted. Hence Clubs put their energies into one target at a time.

That's why, when a club tries for a player to fill a position, and chases 3 targets, they will have their 1, 2, AND 3. If they lose out on their 1 or 2 and get number 3 the club will then say that he was their number one target.

Konoplyanka is a number two target. If we don't get him watch for a desperate bid for someone like Tom Ince lol.



{Ed002's Note - On the plus side Victor Moses will make his deal permanent in the summer.}

4.) What I don't get is why we don't ensure we secure our targets. Salah would have been ours if we hadn't have haggled over a couple of million, and if we're really keen on Kono then haggling at the eleventh hour isn't really an option sincehis agent and current club know that we're up against the clock. FFS it can't be rocket science agreeing a fee for a player. Ask the price, make your offer, negotiate if needs be, and if the player is happy with the move and can agree the personals sign on the dotted line.

5.) Salah would not have been ours regardless of Chelsea. We dod not offer enough.

6.) 31 Jan 2014 18:20:03
to edo2 " Victor Moses will make his position permanent" is cough lol

Mark (aka Cactus Jack)

Hi Eds, any truth in media reports that we're keen on Bayer Leverkusen's Sydney Sam? Scores his fair share and Looks a genuine prospect {Ed002's Note - Not from Liverpool as far as I am aware - Wolfsburg enquired after him in the summer.}




28 Oct 2013 11:15:09
From what I'm reading it seems Will Hughes is a priority target for us. I've only seen him on Youtube and with all the provisos he seems an incredible talent and a potential straight replacement for Gerrard as Captain Marvel enters his twilight years. Hughes is still only 18 but has the head of someone much older (no pun intended as he's an albino). It would be a real statement of intent from the club if we beat the likes of City and Arsenal to his signing.


1.) It would be a bigger statement of intent to Suarez that we are willing to spend £15m on 4th/5th choice player rather than strengthening the starting 11.

Must say I really like the look of Jorginho. Strikes me as a Xabi Alonso kind of player except with a bit more pace. The speed with which he can see a pass is amazing and his execution is also top drawer. With the runners we have up front Liverpool would be a match made in heaven.




14 Feb 2018 20:45:43
Quick question Eds.

If an English team in the top 4 of the EPL wins the Champions League does it mean that the 5th placed team qualifies for CL next season?


{Ed002's Note - No.}

05 Jan 2018 23:03:15
Anyone looking to Karius as an answer to our goalkeeeping problems got a pretty conclusive answer tonight.

Far too indecisive and ropey to be our no.1

No use buying a world class centre back if you're going to persist with a second rate keeper.

I'm sure Klopp will be shopping for one in the summer. In the meantime I'd give Ward a go. Surely he can't be worse than the other two.


1.) 05 Jan 2018 23:08:18
He barely gets a chance so he’s not comfortable, he probably puts extra pressure on himself to impress as he gets very few minutes. The answer? I don’t know. Better than Mignolet? Yes with an eye closed and missing an arm!

2.) 05 Jan 2018 23:12:43
I really don't get why Karius was so indecisive tonight, he's been much better than that generally this season.

Maybe he's not used to playing with a center back who talks once in a while. Or maybe he's getting nervy because he thinks his manager has no confidence in him.

3.) 05 Jan 2018 23:14:47
Well thank God Klopps makes the decisions. 😏.

4.) 05 Jan 2018 23:29:25
Redmist, your haste to gloat about how Karius performed is premature and frankly, sad. You are aware that the guy is in and out of the team and so can't get into a rhythm and understanding with his defenders, right? You are aware that that is not a way for ANY player to improve and be consistent, right? Karius did not have his best game and yes, he has been way better than that perf. this season (as SR said) for a guy who plays once every month. Maybe that is good enough for some to assess a player BUT to the rest of us, we disagree.

5.) 06 Jan 2018 00:08:03
Migs and Karius are 2nd choice goal keepers at best.
For Robbies sake, football is Not short of world class keepers at all, Liverpool should have one.

6.) 06 Jan 2018 00:16:53
BRover come on! He has shown me nothing to suggest he could become the keeper we need. He is the standard of Matip, no where near good enough.

7.) 06 Jan 2018 00:21:49
You could see VVD expecting so much more from his keeper tonight . definitely needs sorting.

8.) 06 Jan 2018 12:11:25
Redmist, when exactly did we buy a world class CB? Must have missed that. Anyway, ease up on Karius, you acknowledge he is on and out of the team, playing with a different back 4 again, a new player player to the team, of course there are going to be communication problems.

9.) 06 Jan 2018 12:22:46
This is exactly the reason Klopp won’t play him much. Plays 1 game in a few weeks and gets ripped into by fans.
Even though GKs don’t need fitness to run far like players, they still need consistency in their game time and to be given a long run of games to learn from mistakes.

I mean come on, in training he has got no chance of learning anything with our attackers destroying him day by day 😣😂.



01 Jan 2018 23:38:47
Wonder Dog Sparky's tweet refers to Pulisic imho.

He wears no. 22 for Dortmund and there are plenty of 2's in the pic.

Just a calculated guess. I could be way out but he's certainly been on the radar so worth a punt.



1.) 02 Jan 2018 01:03:02
Crazy thing is Lemar has scored 22 Career goals in the league and is 22 years old.

But i like the logic :) .

2.) 02 Jan 2018 01:32:58
I think it's Keita arriving early. Hello Kitty as in Hello Keita and shea butter is a massive product in Guinea.

3.) 02 Jan 2018 04:27:26
Lemar has been in 2 senior clubs, and scored 2 goals for the France senior.

Hehe. I like this.

4.) 02 Jan 2018 05:54:32
Rumour on Twitter has it (apologies to Twitter-haters) that Keita was in London and Liverpool recently to sort out his image rights. The Keita guess above could add up? I'm clueless about the clues though.

5.) 02 Jan 2018 06:51:14
I like the Keita one he has been a little dis jointed since the move, it would be silly as he's champion league cup tied. But if Coutinho is going him ane Lemar would be awsome.

6.) 02 Jan 2018 07:31:40
I think it’s Lemar because he has 2 names, 2 arms, 2 legs and today is the 2nd!

7.) 02 Jan 2018 07:54:30
Leon Goertezka is 22 years old .

8.) 02 Jan 2018 08:04:44
I think it's all gibberish and Ed 002 is sitting back in a plush armchair with a large smirk on his face.

9.) 02 Jan 2018 08:53:03
Only Sherlok holmes can solve this.

10.) 02 Jan 2018 08:53:40
What has 2 or 22 got to do with it?

11.) 02 Jan 2018 09:57:33
Coutinho is leaving.
He went back to pack his belongings, then saw 6.4 VVD trying to convince him to stay back.
But he chose to leave.

12.) 02 Jan 2018 12:17:29
Ford, I have a strong feeling that you have solved the clue.



30 Dec 2017 22:08:20
One area in which Karius is an improvement on Migs is his throwing although his kicking let him down a couple of times.

Also thought Robertson had another steady game. Made himself available all the time giving our midfield an option but unfortunately his own distribution especially with crosses was poor today.

I thought Couts had a good game as well as Firminho. Mane seemed like he'd been spoken to as he was trying less to be the main man.


1.) 30 Dec 2017 23:05:44
Robertson had a steady game but his crossing was truly awful today.

2.) 30 Dec 2017 23:31:53
Spot on, Redmist regarding Karius. Also, he was not found wanting when the LC boys starting lumping it forward and showed great command of his area when Fuchs' crossed that ball in (that ball was in the air for ages) and cleaned out Klavan who bravely, got there first as if he had not, Karius was in position to punch clear and calm the defence. The boy needs top be playing now cos he is miles ahead of Migs in near every dept. except PL experiance which is nothing cos Migs has experience at being a clown in the PL.

Interesting analysis by Danny Murphy on MOTD2 suggesting Karius was out of position when the shot came in. I'd be inclined to agree with him.


{Ed0333's Note - The friggin irony...Danny Murphy was out of position for most of his playing career.

Would love it if both came but I can't see Lemar happening at the crazy valuation Monaco have placed on him. Moreover we are well stocked with attacking mids at present with Ox and Lallana both of whom are quality on their day.

I'd say Jorginho is more necessary to us now. The way we play with a strong press and rapid counter Jorginho is a perfect fit as he can break up play and also turn defence into attack with a combination of lightning speed and precision that I can't see in any other player right now.

I would break the bank for him.

So that's him ruled out. Jorginho is a far better option.

With Spuds facing three of the top 6 in their next 3 fixtures including us we have a great chance to pull away over the remainder of this month and help to cement that top 4 place.

Final post on this topic.

The number of points Moreno has cost us he wouldn't get into any other Premiership team. I see Ed001 constantly slagging off Migs for costing us games and points but how is Moreno any different. Even when he has a decent game he is liable to making a rash challenge and giving away free kicks in dangerous areas and even penalties. He is also constantly being caught out of position bombing forward when we should be consolidating our lead with a few mins of the match remaining. If you're going to criticise Migs then by the same logic you should be criticising Moreno.

He is the weakest link in our defence and given what we have in the centre that's saying something. When Robbo starts costing us points I will readily begin laying into him. Until then I'm prepared to give back the lad and give him the chance he's waited for.


{Ed001's Note - I give up, people just want to see stuff that isn't there. I criticise Moreno when he makes mistakes as well but you are so busy talking crap you fail to read that. This whole thread is pointless. You are just all wasting my time with your inability to read. I will just ignore you in future, as it is pointless talking to someone who is unable to read the replies.}

How many points/ goals has Moreno cost us? And how many has Robertson? On that basis alone Moreno should never go on that team sheet ahead of Robbo.

I'm not saying he's the answer to our left back issue but at the moment he's the best we've got and hasn't cost us any points so let's get behind him instead of getting on his back.
