Just read on the Echo that Liverpool are "set to step up the transfer chase for Xherdan Shaqiri". I'm still think there is a chance for Fekir or one of the others mentioned by the eds, my opinion is that Shaqiri is an addition to. But, what do I know.


1.) 12 Jun 2018 05:29:24
Yeah Shaqiri transfer not related to Fekir.


2.) 12 Jun 2018 06:32:19
But getting Shaqiri would mean we are not getting Malcom and the likes of.


3.) 12 Jun 2018 08:37:36
Malcom is pretty much set for Inter Milan. Contract was negotiated but Bordeaux doesn't like the proposed payment structure by Inter Milan (Inter wants a loan with a buy at the end of the season and bordeaux wants the money now) .

btt: I don't rate shaqiri at all. Saw him (the few times he played) at Bayern and wasnt impressed, saw him at Milan and wasnt impressed and he didn't impress me at stoke either. He was a very talented player back in the day but he thinks way to highly about his abilitys and has an attitude problem.


4.) 12 Jun 2018 09:51:40
He also looks a little chubby imo.


5.) 12 Jun 2018 12:21:56
Oh god the irony in the comment above :D.


6.) 12 Jun 2018 15:59:17
A lot of Liverpool fans seem to be in favor of this transfer. And if he joins, I hope it works out. But I do worry about his attitude. Some are justifying it as not wanting to play for a losing side like Stoke, but these same problems were there at Bayern - when he felt he was too good to be coming off the bench; as well as at Inter - when he felt he wasn’t getting enough playing time. He reminds me of Balotelli, where he’s had his chances at the big clubs and shouldn’t deserve another one, despite being blessed with natural talent. Just my two cents. and again, if we sign up, I’m backing him to the hilt.


7.) 12 Jun 2018 16:58:51
What’s a transfer chase?
How do you step one up?
How do you get set up to step one up?

{Ed002's Note - You can only do it when the club is on "red alert".}


8.) 12 Jun 2018 18:21:48
You need a war chest as well.


9.) 12 Jun 2018 18:38:32
Does a transfer chase have to take place in a Babelcopter?


10.) 12 Jun 2018 21:05:06
A transfer chase is something that happens after you've monitored aggressively.


11.) 12 Jun 2018 23:21:54
Is it not when you start warming up the fax machine and prepare a delegation for a long journey?

The irony of the chubby comment @ fat boy slim 😂😂😂😂.


12.) 12 Jun 2018 21:00:00
Ed002 I’m curious, how do clubs go about initiating “red alert? ” Sirens?

{Ed002's Note - Through Google.}


13.) 12 Jun 2018 23:53:46
I have few misgivings about signing Shaqiri. Anyone who scores worldies is welcome. I think it's a decent signing and he could be one that really surprises people.


14.) 13 Jun 2018 04:16:27
Not all transfer chases have Babelcopters, but all Babelcopters have transfer chases.


15.) 13 Jun 2018 07:35:31
This is anfield has an article on Shaqiri written by a Stoke fan who does a podcast. He says he was their best player last season, albeit not difficult and thinks some of the question marks pointed at him over his attitude are unfounded. He does question how he would fit in with genpress like has been said on here but in today’s market 12m isn’t bad for a player who could come on and produce magic from the bench.

{Ed001's Note - oh well if one fan says it then it must be true.}


16.) 13 Jun 2018 08:32:39
It’s an opinion on someone who watched him every week last season, more than anyone here who is giving an opinion.

{Ed001's Note - and the opinion of a biased fan who might know f all about the game as well. Still pointless isn't it no matter how you try and dress it up. I am sure if I was to look I could find plenty of fans who watched him every week who would disagree, but that would be just as pointless doing so. As for more than anyone else here, you are being a blert now as you have no idea what anyone else has done. Attitude like yours is why it is a waste of time anyone giving an opinion, I am certainly done speaking to you. Little point if you are just going to make up stuff you couldn't possibly know.}


17.) 13 Jun 2018 11:26:33
I’m passing on the opinion of a bloke who runs a fans podcast for stoke. He obviously watched him week in week out last season and has praise for him, if someone watched Stoke more than him on a Liverpool transfer rumour page I would be amazed and seriously question what they are doing with their spare time!
Would he be biased to a player leaving? I’m sure I wouldn’t be in the same position.

{Ed001's Note - no, you were denigrating everyone else's opinion to try and make some bloke who does a podcast's more valid. You have no idea if the guy even has a clue about footie or not. As for watching them week in and week out, if you live anywhere but the UK, every single Prem game is screened live and on repeat, so anyone can watch them all very easily. You go to any bar or café here and there is at least one game being shown, usually more. It is not difficult in reality to have seen every single Stoke game last season.

As for biased, you have no idea what his biases are. He might have a particular liking for fat lazy players who spend 85 minutes a game throwing their arms in the air complaining about the ball not being at his feet even though he was the one who actually gave it away.}


18.) 13 Jun 2018 11:56:11
I'm really ok with shaqiri. still young, yes he's had his issues but he is coming to an interesting that interesting mid-20s part of your life where you start to think a bit more clearly than you did at 20.


19.) 13 Jun 2018 11:53:13
I am in no way saying this guys view is correct, I’m just passing on an alternative view from someone who has watched him more than people on here last season.


20.) 13 Jun 2018 15:43:13
Ed was it his attitude problems and selfishness that seen other larger clubs pass on the chance to sign him?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

Is there an update on Salah (the poster)? The earlier post has me a little worried.


1.) 20 Aug 2018 18:29:06
Wait, what happened to Salah, the poster?

{Ed025's Note - we dont really know yet brover mate..


2.) 20 Aug 2018 18:43:26
Get well soon Salah. make a speedy recovery mate.


3.) 20 Aug 2018 19:27:11
Wow, I’ve just seen the post from I can only imagine a family member of Salah?
Get well soon soon mate we are all thinking of you.
YNWA xx.


 

 

30 Jun 2018 19:01:18
can you imagine what will happen on this site if Fekir does in fact sign with Man U instead of us?


1.) 30 Jun 2018 19:21:23
Probably meltdown.


2.) 30 Jun 2018 19:24:05
It'll be frustrating mate we'll see some fans talk about how bad the owners are etc etc. Tbh I don't care where he goes, great player and I want him at Liverpool but it's not a matter of life and death, fingers crossed the Fekir comes to Liverpool though. I think the majority atm is guess work.


3.) 30 Jun 2018 19:29:33
Given the number of CAM's Manu have it would be a strange bit of business, but he is a talented player. I imagine its more Aulas trying to create a bidding war then anything else, but if he does move there so be it.

He's an option, but their are other options. We've already done some fantastic business and I have faith in the clubs scouts.


4.) 30 Jun 2018 20:31:37
Can’t imagine mourinho getting the best out of fekir.


5.) 30 Jun 2018 21:12:41
If you were fekir would you rather play for klopp or mourinuo? As an AM it has to be klopp.

I would rather we sign assensio though, let them have fekir. Assensio can play anywhere which is something klopp likes and I think we would take some stopping with keita, assensio, salah, mane and Firmino. Good god what a team.

All this talk about fekir and utd is BS anyway, the lad is at the world cup and not even thinking about clubs. I still think we have more chance of signing fekir than assensio and I think we have more chance than utd.


6.) 30 Jun 2018 21:21:23
The only way we'd bid for Asensio is if we sold the best player in the premier league Salah. And if we did that, for how good he is we'd still be downgrading, massively!


7.) 30 Jun 2018 21:38:40
I'm of the same opinion PH mate. We won't get Asensio but it's a nice thought.


8.) 30 Jun 2018 21:50:03
He’s over-rated, I don’t think he’d be an automatic starter for us 👍.


9.) 30 Jun 2018 22:22:00
What you've never seen, you won't miss is my mantra on this.
I do trust Klopp's choices though, but the knee problems really put me off.
if we were to buy him, perhaps a three year payment period?
If he breaks down before its completion, some deal to be made on any outstanding balance?


10.) 30 Jun 2018 22:42:26
I think you are spot on Ron. I think he was a target as cover across the front 3 and to occasionally play with them against teams playing a really defensive system.

Lacazette scored twice as many goals in the same Lyon side and got dropped for Danny Welbeck 🤔 Fekir is a really good player, but he's been called "better than Coutinho" which just looks more silly by the day. He is more versatile maybe, but Coutinho is world class. Fekir isn't even top class yet.


11.) 01 Jul 2018 00:06:59
I was saying this weeks ago about fekir and got absolutely slated for it. He is a great player but he's not THAT good. 60 mil always sounded expensive to me.

I highly doubt assensio too but the more you read the more it seems we did put in a massive bid for him. If I were him, I would have a massive think about joining liverpool. He would be cherished here, played week in, week out. He is a fabulous footballer. Fekir isn't anywhere near coutinio level but assensio is. I think played centrally behind our front 3 or 2 he would be devastating. He most certainly would be a starter. I know it's unlikely but 6 months ago we sold a player for 142mil! and we're playing with the big boys now. Klopp knows this and so do fsg. I wouldn't put it past them to land assensio or at least give it a proper shot.


12.) 01 Jul 2018 00:31:29
He is nowhere near as good as coutinho. But think of him as a better lallana.


13.) 01 Jul 2018 04:14:14
Give him three years football with liverpool, first team and hell be on coutinio level or near it. Coutinio is 3/ 4 years older. Coutinio wasn't anywhere near the player he is now when he Was 21/ 22, probably not on assensio level tbf.


14.) 01 Jul 2018 09:24:29
Fekir turns 25 in two weeks. Coutinho has just turned 26 two weeks ago. There is only just over a year age gap between them. Fekir will never be at Coutinho's level for me, but he could well fit our team better.

I hope he signs, but I won't lose loads of sleep over it if he doesn't. Fabinho was the signing of the summer for me. He takes us to the next level all on his own. Throw Keita in as well, and hopefully a keeper and we are going to be a whole new breed next season. Fekir or no Fekir.

Kane may wear the arm band, but Henderson is the leader of the England team.


1.) 24 Jun 2018 14:35:38
No he isnt.


2.) 24 Jun 2018 15:36:56
And how do you make that out Stone?


3.) 24 Jun 2018 15:43:58
stone

I agree, and it's a joke that Hendo isn't wearing the armband.

Well done England today.


4.) 24 Jun 2018 15:59:20
Well Barry and Ken it was obvious who was running the show he is a born leader.


5.) 24 Jun 2018 16:11:16
Most will only judge based on the obvious; goals and assists. So, Kane is always the one true leader. Huh!


6.) 24 Jun 2018 18:25:19
A great team needs many leaders. Kane and Hendo and maybe stones.


7.) 24 Jun 2018 19:41:42
I liked when Henderson literally barked at Young, Walker and Stones for taking the mickey near the end when they were rolling the ball around with their studs and walking around. Don't know whether Hendo was telling them to score more goals to improve goal difference or to stop humiliating the opposition but whatever it was it was good to see. England were lucky to have opposition who literally laid down and offered themselves for a tickle so they shouldn't get all cocky and take the piss.


8.) 24 Jun 2018 19:51:03
Ken is a United fan. So what do expect? Clueless.

Hendo was the only one today barking orders.


9.) 24 Jun 2018 20:55:04
I remember watching at one stage while Henderson was barking orders at 3 or 4 of his teammates while Kane stood a couple of feet away and kept his mouth closed.
Stone is right, Kane might wear the armband but Henderson is pulling the strings.
And Ken either just doesn't like Henderson or just doesn't have a clue.


10.) 24 Jun 2018 23:52:50
Kane is our flashy player, our super star but Hendo is the better leader I think. Doesn't matter who has the arm band though. It's not like it changes hendo's attitude. Hendo is quite a super star himself though, ucl finalist.


11.) 25 Jun 2018 00:31:40
Agreed the free kick was bossed by hendo. He took control and created that goal.


12.) 25 Jun 2018 00:32:15
That free kick that led to a goal was organised by Hendo, where was Kane then? Kane scores goals, he's no captain in my view.


13.) 25 Jun 2018 01:45:13
As a neutral, I think taking the armband off Henderson has taken the pressure off of him and ramped up Kane in the process. Southgate made a hard choice, but the right one to progress. I love Hendo mind you.


 

 

22 Jun 2018 10:44:41
If you haven't yet, I highly recommend the little article in the Echo about Sterling and how his daughter was singing the Mo Salah song after City won the league. Really funny.


1.) 22 Jun 2018 10:48:33
At least one of the Sterling family have their head screwed on 😂.


2.) 22 Jun 2018 10:51:29
Yeah it's class mate, luckily she's not daft is she!


3.) 22 Jun 2018 12:44:06
I used to be gutted ghat we sold sterling but he is useless eh. No other player has missed as many absolute sitters as him. I mean 2 yard open goals and his excuse is "it was my left foot and I was running REALLY fast" he does it every week it seems.


4.) 22 Jun 2018 13:12:42
Dont like him but ability wise he's far from useless. Just under 50 Premier League goals,20 odd last year alone! if i had to choose i'd take Sterling over Fekir from what i've seen.


5.) 22 Jun 2018 13:49:06
Sterlings problem was always his finishing, even at Liverpool.


6.) 22 Jun 2018 14:18:21
Think we got our money worth there
not a crap player at all but much to improve on imo
would I take him back at Liverpool no and simple reason is he would not improve our front three at all
and he would not want to be a sub.


7.) 22 Jun 2018 14:19:00
Sterling over fekir? . Really. We don't need another winger with less end product. Fekir is different ball game. Creative midfielder.


8.) 22 Jun 2018 14:40:04
Stg, Sterling is at his best in the centre attacking midfield role. That is where he played in 13/ 14 when we nearly won the league. He is a bang average winger because he can't cross a ball, and his first time finishing at the back post is embarassing. His best work for City has come when he cuts infield and drives at the heart of the defence, into the box.

Not sure he is as good as Fekir though. That is debatable!


9.) 22 Jun 2018 15:49:11
My problem with Sterling is that his margin of improvement, since he first stepped into the LFC first team. The guy simply has not improved that much. Compare him with Coutinho and you'll realize what I mean. Coutinho couldn't shoot straight when he first joined and was missing chances left right and center. He barely had any durable stamina too and didn't know what the word "press" meant. And look at at him today. In my opinion Sterling is just the EPL's current flavor of the Lennon and Walcott type of forward. Lots of speed with much less of everything else.


10.) 22 Jun 2018 15:50:26
No he didn't mk. he played LW with suarez through the middle and Sturridge on the RW. we had gerrard holding and henderson and coutinho as the pivot.


11.) 22 Jun 2018 16:13:11
Didnt sterling score 18 in the league this year?


12.) 22 Jun 2018 17:02:11
MK, I an playing down his role in that season. But that season is all about Suarez. He made everyone around him good. So his vision isn't that good. And we don't need him for that role and he will cost high to be a back up winger.


13.) 22 Jun 2018 18:01:19
I’m not going to slag him off. There’s enough people out there that want to have a pop at him. He played for us we got a good money for him and we’ve improved with Salah and Mané. I thought the article actually shows him in a good light as a family man who cares about his family. Plus his daughter is one of us!


14.) 22 Jun 2018 20:22:54
Lets all see how good Fekir is in a top league before we get carried away about him. For years i've seen posts on this site drooling about players from Ligue 1,only for them to get their move to the Premier League or La Liga and be bang average. This time last year everyone wanted to spend £90M on Lemar.


15.) 22 Jun 2018 20:48:33
Don't really understand why Sterling gets the hate still. He played well for us and left to win trophies and for more money. Both of them have proved to have paid off for him so far. He's not the first footballer to do it and he won't be the last. I'm guessing everyone on here wouldn't leave their jobs in a heartbeat for more success and a massive pay rise.


 

 

09 Jun 2018 19:20:43
just read that Lyon are breaking off negotiations. is there any truth to this?


1.) 09 Jun 2018 19:30:56
Seems like it 😄

It was “done” a few days ago.


2.) 09 Jun 2018 19:37:31
How can they break of negotiations for one of our players?

Ed, my fear is that when/ if liverpool do win the league, the owners would pull a Monaco and profit off of the "big" players. I hope I'm wrong, but it kind of has that feel. They didn't do that with the Red Sox instead they kept the spending going, but I'm not sure they would do that with Liverpool.

{Ed002's Note - I don't think the owners have any intention of doing that Stone.}

What is wrong with what ed has posted? Which part is untrue? This is the Liverpool page and he is responding to Liverpool questions and statements. Why try to deflect by bringing up other clubs? If something is posted that is untrue or that you don’t agree with fine, but again there is nothing wrong or inaccurate with what he posted.

Loved the comments about Neymar Ed. Someone needs to stand up to him. I have no idea why people are so afraid to piss him off.
