Just a rumour, so please don't kill the messenger.

Liverpool will not be making any more purchases this summer. We are renewing the contracts of the players we can see longevity with and also, are hoping to save considerable money from sales and a reluctance to buy this summer. in order to fund a huge move next summer. I know all of us LFC fans would love to see Mbappe donning the red shirt but it will actually be Haaland who we are targeting for next summer. hence why Liverpool are happy to sit back and watch Utd buy Sancho, City buy Kane/ Grealish. and Chelsea re-sign Lukaku. as next year we can offer Haaland a starting spot in our front of which will definitely be moving on within the next 12months or so. my guess is that it will be Sadio Mane.

This wouldn't surprise me, TBH. Especially if reports like Shaq being allowed to leave for a relatively small fee to get his wages off the books are to be believed.

I wonder if we may see the odd cannot loan towards the end of the window? I have a niggling feeling we pay see Pipco back in a Liverpool shirt by the end of August - only on loan though.

That niggling feeling may also be last night's dinner, so please pay it no heed!

Good advice Ed - holding your breath until next summer could be terminal ;)

Haaland to Liverpool for next season is pie in sky stuff for so many reasons like we might not even make the CL places next season. But i do believe the we won't be purchasing and will be selling bit.

Hi Eds and Fellow reds, I hope you're all keeping safe and well?

I personally don't worry too much about what other teams are doing. A lot of fans just like to moan because United have signed player 'X' and City signed player 'Y'.

Who cares!? I trust our manager and the players we have. When they're fully fit we can match and beat anyone in the league.

Finishing 3rd with the luck we had with injuries last season and still (I think) finishing closer to City than what they did to us the previous season sums it up really.

Have faith, the home crowd will also be a massive boost too, I don't think any team felt it at a home game as much as we did (Maybe I'm a little biased there)?

Absolutely buzzing for the new season!

Also, on a different note, I've got to take my hat off to Picford, Stones, Maguire and the rest of the England defenders in particular because prior to the Euro 2020 I really didn't think we'd do much with that defence and keeper but tbf, Pickford in particular hasn't done a lot wrong for England. Difficult to say that but he does seem to be so much more assured playing for England than he does for Everton.

Euros football standard below EPL level so Maguire and Co not so embarrassed.

But they are not Champions League quality and will be found out when they play top club sides.

Not Liverpool related, but very much FOOTBALL related.

Its great to see pictures of Christian Eriksen at the Inter training ground.

I really hope he is able to go on and enjoy football again, but most importantly that he's able to go on enjoying his life.

Reading the interview with the ref on the day - Anthony Taylor - it's amazing how many things went right in those few minutes that meant that Christian lived to fight another day.

Good luck to you, mate.

Would we look at Sterling?
Young, never injured etc etc.

Don't imagine City would be in a particular hurry to sell a good player to the team most likely to stop them from retaining the league this season.

And even if they were, what do you reckon they'd look for. £60m? More maybe? Don't think he's worth it.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Aug 2021 15:30:19
Nah. I'd like Harvey Barnes for a lesser fee and a quarter of Sterling's wages. Klopp would turn Barnes into a monster.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Aug 2021 15:30:37
Sterling has had his time with us, its gone and its never coming back, its like pining for a ex girlfriend you only remember the passion you never remember the rows.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Aug 2021 14:37:00
In my Humble opinion Jack Grealish is not a £100m footballer Man city has grossly overpaid for a player that still has plenty in his game to improve.

Harry Kane needs to stop acting like a baby and return to training, if he wants a move this is not the right way of going about it.

Liverpool tying down there best players to new contracts is good news but of course that has to be paid for.

Before Klopp leaves us my hope is that we have 3 or 4 players breaking through from the reserves TAA style, Fingers crossed that Curtis Jones gets more minutes this season than last season.

With all that we had to endure last season we still finished 3rd so i am confident that if we can keep all of our top players fit we can challenge once again for the major trophies.

It will be interesting to see what the squad looks like after the transfer window closes, until then i shall remain patient as regards to incomings and outgoings.

Finally as regards to VAR and the new interpretations of the laws i still come to the conclusion that it should be scrapped altogether, having Lee Mason and Mike Reilly working together is a recipe for disaster.

Manchester City able to spend £100,000,000 on a player who is not guaranteed his place in the England XI shows just how hard it is to financially compete with them.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Clubs don't need to be able to "financially compete". Liverpool can sell players to raise funds.}

Cough, cough, VvD, cough.

Agreed on Grealish. I think he’s an excellent player but it is a standstill signing as far as City are concerned. Grealish is not an outlet so won’t provide the penetration City are missing (something that Kane unquestionably would) . One thing that will be irksome is Grealish’s ability to win free-kicks, which ties in perfectly with what Guardiola instructs his teams to do. Lastly, 100m is daylight robbery.

Ed002 - seriously, what are you on about?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It is the usual whining about about every other club. If Liverpool were to sell players to raise funds then you can get your desire to spend on the "marquee" signings everyon obsesses over.}

@polecat: point taken, it was wrong then and its wrong now.

I do find it funny that Grealish has taken Kane's dream move away, Daniel Levy will be a tough nut to crack if his price is not met, Kane will either have to accept his move might be delayed by a year or get his agent to scour europe looking for a buyer, why sign a extension to a contract if you have no intention of honoring it? Surely he knew his chances of trophy winning with Spurs were slim at best, especially since he disappears in every final he plays in.

Sorry Ed002, I know we don't like to speak numbers (my post that was removed effectively was comparing income, wages and spend between Man City and effectively asking the question why do we need to sell but they don't) .

I'm guessing I've forgotten about the stadium regeneration and also the new training complex which does infringe our capacity to spend. The choices of the owners and their stewardship of Liverpool FC also impacts how transfers are operated, which I'm presuming is vastly different in approach to the board and ownership of Man City's.

It's like comparing chalk and cheese.

Agree2 0Disagree

04 Aug 2021 15:58:10
Man City can buy all the players they like but can still only field 11 players and in all honesty Sergio Augero is a better player imo than Harry Kane and if they field grealish with debruyne then I think it makes them weaker defensive wise.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Aug 2021 14:23:14
Ed’s, just a question that maybe isn’t quite fit for the Lfc page and I’m obviously conscious of wording it reasonably well in case Ed2 comments on my use of grammar, etc

Chelsea’s signings last season, Werner, the lad from Ajax, havertz, huge money spent on them etc. I see now they’re attempting to buy Lukaku, with this in mind and obviously they just won the champions league, but how would you regard their signings from last summer?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Werner has had some confidence issues, Ziyech has taken time to settle and Havertz is fine.}

04 Aug 2021 14:46:18
Timo couldn't hit a barn door with a banjo last season. Although his all around play and ability to set up teammates was rather impressive.

If he gets his confidence up then Werner will be banging in goals like he did in the bundesliga.

1. Harrys back?
2. He doesn't support city anymore?

1) Yes.
2) Give him a little while, I'm surely he'll turn back cos of how mean we all are to him.

04 Aug 2021 12:10:19
Yep, albeit if he misses his soliloquies, he may flip flop back to the City page ;-)

OP, you are using the word "support" very loosely.

Tongue in cheek or not people perhaps give the guy a break and leave him be im sure he doesn't feel great reading these type of posts.

04 Aug 2021 13:59:06
jkh, the issue is we have all given him plenty of chances over the years and he keeps coming back spouting nonsense, representing opinion as fact (his biggest feature, and how we can always spot his regens) and just generally doing down the team.

Most of that would be fine, and I'm sure there are other posters like that. BUT, and its a huge but, every other poster here is a Liverpool fan, that comes through loud and clear. There's not another instance I can recall of a poster going off to support another team having claimed their all-dying love for our team.

Switching teams and glory hunting is the lowest of the low in my opinion. Pick your team (whoever they are) and support them through thick and thin. Otherwise you are just a fickle glory hunter and not worthy of 'air time' anywhere.

Not bothered. I spot a line of emojis and skip reading the post.

Also for the record, I don’t think Akira is Harry.

It doesn't matter whether Harry joins City or not.
. he'll still claim the goal.

No but Sinwave is. More to the point is why people get their knickers in a twist? Attack the post, not the poster. Pull his "facts" apart or simply skip past and don't reply. He is entitled to his opinion the same as everyone else despite how bizarre or laughable some think they are.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - exactly this

04 Aug 2021 14:47:20
jkh, I've been visiting this site for maybe seven or eight years now and in that time Harry's gone through at least a dozen usernames, been banned multiple times, and even went off to support City for around eighteen months. As Zed said, he's been given plenty of chances, and all he ever does is trash the club and the manager and the players.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Aug 2021 15:29:11
I too have been a long term user of many years i just don't see the need to attack continually regardless of Harrys opinions of choices this particular post was simply created as a way of digging out Harry and not in response to a comment made.

Personally of the ilk live and let live you may not agree that's fine make that point and move on. I don't pretend to be an angel i just think in this day and age mental health has a spotlight and rightly so and these type of things although unintentional can have an impact on a person.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Aug 2021 15:41:32
I was going to leave this thread well alone, but how on earth do you make a leap to mental health issues here, jkh? Mental health does rightly so have a spotlight in this day and age, and is a very serious subject. Not one to be bandied around when discussing someone who behaves like a dick on a message board!

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Aug 2021 15:58:08
Probably is best left alone.

04 Aug 2021 16:21:28
It's not what he does. Many on here have issues with FSG, or Klopp or our tactics, or our transfers or whatever else. And they voice it and we get into debates and that's all fine and reasonable and a strength of these pages.

It's how he does it. He makes up stuff as he goes along, he belittles people's knowledge or lack of, and he saunters around with suprême arrogance, as if his posts are beyond any reproach.

Wait until he starts repeating the same stuff 10 times per day, now that he's decided to come out in the open again. I've been reading his cr*p for at least 10 years.

Zeddicus is right. He behaves as a "dick on a messageboard". He asks for the abuse he gets. He's been warned and banned more times than anyone else on this site. It's not even close. And what's with the perpetual name changes? Isn't it all about deceiving the rest of us? We have to stay with our usernames and be accountable for what we post. This guy wants to be above all that.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Aug 2021 16:57:00
I understand gents and to be clear I’m not inciting or suggesting anyone has done wrong I was just airing on the side of caution no offence intended. It’s a minefield out there.

Back to the football!
