Papers are saying we have agreed a deal "in principle" for Keita, I genuinely believe they get their transfer news from this website.

Adam

1.) 30 Jun 2017 18:59:25
I'm getting the feeling he's not interested in coming to us after everything I'm reading.


2.) 30 Jun 2017 20:28:18
He was never really interested and RBL are not interested in selling. Why we cannot take a hint and move on, is doing my head in. The kid is just not that into us.


3.) 30 Jun 2017 20:44:18
Keita will come if we successfully bid for him, but if he is as good as some say don't be surprised if he only stays for a year or maybe two, he is ambitious.


4.) 30 Jun 2017 23:38:37
Strangely, after reading the reports, especially about him talking to great length about his friend Sadio Mané, I would think he is very interested in joining us. Also, if a serious journo like Gabriel Marcotti says we agreed a deal with him in principle, I'm pretty sure he wants to come.

There's just this tiny issue of agreeing a transfer sum with the moneybags of Red Bull.


5.) 30 Jun 2017 23:52:39
If he proves to be that good in a pool jersey, as soon as a real Madrid, Barcelona offer him the chance to join them he will be gone. But we have to realise that all our players are just using our beloved club as a stepping stone until we start challenging for champions league final appearances again. Keita, VVD, Salah or Coutinho or any of our squad aren't playing for our club because of their Liverpool love/ desire/ live long dream to play for us. Gerrard and Carragher were the last of that scouse blood. Gerrard had transfer possibilities every year but he couldn't leave because he has scouse blood but football is a different sport now. Its all about €s and £s. Sure look at the academy the majority of the kids aren't scouse.


6.) 01 Jul 2017 02:19:18
The transfer won't happen. All this talk about it is pointless, he will never be a Liverpool player.


7.) 02 Jul 2017 12:23:40
Brussels red when you say we do you mean the club or people on here. In light of what the eds have said it sounds like the club doesn't need to move on because it wasn't there anyway. Can say pretty much 90% of what I see in the press about LFC transfers has been media and agent fabricated or exagerated bull so not really down to the club.

Over-sensitive post of the day, but did anyone see the small interview of Brewster during the CL parade? I don't think it got picked up on because it was only about 2 minutes long (I had the parade on all day which is how I saw it) .

Anyway, he was sitting there happily signing things being thrown onto the bus, answering the interviewer's questions and elimination a misplaced preconception I had of him that he was a bit too big for his boots, when someone else on the bus jokingly asked him how many minutes he got in Europe this year. He either replied "none" or something very minimal.

He genuinely looked quite upset by this question, and to be honest it seemed out of order asking that. So in light of his form in pre-season and the fact he's replacing Sturridge this year, I want to wish him lots of luck for the year ahead. I hope he gets game time, I hope he scores important goals and I hope in his next Liverpool parade he can answer a stupid question like that with "many".

Adam

1.) 17 Jul 2019 13:02:06
Asked by a player or reporter?


2.) 17 Jul 2019 14:09:50
It was Ritchie Partridge. As you say he butted in and asked "how many appearances have you got for Liverpool then? ". Brewster replied none and Partridge said "I've got three". I'm glad someone else noticed it because I thought it was a pretty awful thing to do to be honest.


3.) 17 Jul 2019 14:16:40
I noticed it too. Not to worry he can ask again when Brewster career has finished. Bet you Ritchie won't want that chat then. He's a kid coming back from a severe injury how many appearances do you expect him to have.

Absolute 🛎 end.


4.) 17 Jul 2019 15:19:26
It was Richie Partridge, one of the physios. I thought it was a bit off when i seen it at the the time but it was just crap banter on his part and ill timed.


5.) 17 Jul 2019 15:14:46
Saw that and cringed for the lad, the interviewer said he'd played 10 mins in 2005 or something.


6.) 17 Jul 2019 16:44:05
Might be an oversensitive reaction, but given what the lad went through with injuries this year I really didn't appreciate the 'banter'. He may well have played some minutes if not for them.


7.) 17 Jul 2019 17:28:21
He does have a CL medal so hopefully that will have cheered him up.


8.) 17 Jul 2019 18:43:51
Well said adam. Got a really good feeling about him.


9.) 17 Jul 2019 19:20:11
Could not agree more Robbiesline. He’s a really good prospect I really think he can make it. Can’t wait to see him bag his first goal at the top level.


10.) 18 Jul 2019 03:26:26
I like the look of Brewster so I am happy that he will be getting chances with Sturridge leaving. All the best to him and I hope he grabs every opportunity he gets.

Tottenham with a second half comeback, I guess last night "spurred" them on ;)

Adam

That pun deserved a better reaction! Nicely done mate.


 

 

22 Feb 2019 11:53:03
How has Keita been playing recently? Has he bene improving? Not had a chance to watch unfortunately. I hope VVD will be back for Sunday and Fabinho is back in midfield - he's top class!

Adam

1.) 22 Feb 2019 12:31:20
Keita has been marginally better in each successive game but still a little underwhelming. there's obviously a very good player there but just seems to be playing within himself (similar to Wijnaldum last year) . Maybe its the change of culture and country or perhaps his injuries but we've yet to see the best of him in a red shirt.


2.) 22 Feb 2019 13:17:21
Keita is improving, next season he'll be our star midfield player.


3.) 22 Feb 2019 14:33:12
I read something recently that says he is one big moment from bursting into life. 30 yard Screamer or a match winning goal. I agree, soon as he gets that big injection of confidence he'll be class!


4.) 22 Feb 2019 19:51:37
I disagree, Like A Virgil. Keita is no longer underwhelming. IMO, he is improving very steadily as he is playing better with every game since his solid 2nd half at WH. As someone said, he is one quality piece of end product away from exploding and hopefully if he plays on Sun, that moment will come.


5.) 22 Feb 2019 20:22:12
Almost feel like placing a bet on Keita to score a screamer on Sunday.


6.) 23 Feb 2019 00:03:28
He just needs a run of games but midfield is so competative it's difficult for him to break in he will be a starter soon enough from what I've seen of him.


 

 

05 Feb 2019 11:03:50
I think a combination of injuries and being at the top has rattled the team a little, hence the poor performances of late. I also think the Wolves match didn't help as it extended our run of defeats to 2 matches and ruined that almost invincible image we were building.

That all being said, I think it's going to take only one good match to turn momentum back the other way. A good result against Bournemouth or United for example and the confidence will be boosted and the team will probably go on another winning streak.

The talent is there, that's why we are top. It's the mental side - the knowing how to cope with being in the lead - that's affecting performances lately. Don't be surprised to see a winning streak soon, especially with Gomez, Wijnaldum and TAA on their way back.

Adam

1.) 05 Feb 2019 12:00:55
You’re reading too much into it. Every team has a blip as it’s difficult to keep up intensity ina competitive league. Injuries etc don’t help. If we could have had all fit in jan I think some of the results may have been different, but the we could have suffered the same down the track and had a blip.


2.) 05 Feb 2019 13:15:30
My worry is that city will beat Everton tomorrow, go top on goal difference and the players will see that and it might affect some mentally if the pressure hasn’t already. I also think United is a huge concern for us as we notoriously do poorly against them and city won’t worry too much about them. I admire some people’s optimism about the situation but I think it’s important to note the difference in experience between teams like city and Chelsea who are tried and tested in these sort of positions compared to us. 3 points clear would be good for them, it’s not good for us, especially when a week ago we had a chance to go 7 points clear. It’s mental how quick things can change and I hope there’s another change for the positive but I see it slowly dwindling out, just my opinion.


3.) 05 Feb 2019 13:20:11
OP, there is NO more pressure than normal. Don't believe the media about pressure cos none of it is true. We are having a blip as every team does and the injuries are hurting right now as any team would be hurt by injuries to it's back line and midfield. man City lost Fernandinho ONLY and they lost 3 out of 4 games and had him vs Newcastle and STILL lost. Nothing to see here on that front, OP I'm sorry.

I do agree that the nerves are getting to the team cos things aren't working out and the players look lost. For any team to remain confident, they need certain certitudes and right now, we don't have them. Having our boys back for B'mouth hopefully, wiil give the boys a boost to play their game.

This is when they need our support at Anfield and if fans are going to just fold their arms and moan cos things don't go their way, they should pls, NOT go and give away their tickets to those who will actually give it loads fo the boys to bring this baby home.


4.) 05 Feb 2019 14:44:31
It's just a bad run of form. Obviously it's frustrating for the fans, but we'll come out of it. City is still playing in every competition, to think that they are going to be perfect for the rest of the year is a bit naive. If they win out, then they deserved the league.


 

 

26 Jan 2019 16:54:05
I know the ed said we have 5 players who can change a game for us. I'm guessing that was Alisson, VVD and the front 3. For me It's 6. I think Fabinho is in that list too.

Adam

1.) 26 Jan 2019 17:21:41
Game changing is too vague. Shaqiri or Sturridge can change a game and have done this season on more than one occasion.

I'd say we have 7 players who are in the top 5 in the world in their positions; Alisson, Virgil, Robbo, Fabinho, Mane, Firmino and Salah.


2.) 26 Jan 2019 17:46:17
Mk interesting that mate. Are you thinking of them as midfielders and forwards or their designated position on the pitch. Ie is Fab a Cm or a Dm and Mane a forward or left winger etc. For me I don’t think Fab is there just yet for top 5 in the world, Mane is an interesting one as I’m a massive fan and for me Bobby misses out of top 5 strikers. He is absolutely essential to our system but don’t think he scores enough as a striker to suit other teams systems as a striker.


3.) 26 Jan 2019 18:36:18
JK23, I'll elaborate briefly.

Fabinho is top 5 at RB or DM.

Mane is top 5 at LW or RW.

Salah is top 5 at ST or RW.

Virgil is top 5 at CB.

Robbo is top 5 at LB.

Alisson is top 5 at GK.

As for Firmino, there is quite simply nobody like him anywhere near his level. Fabinho called him a "9, a 10, and an 8" just this week. He's right too. Firmino plays all 3 roles simultaneously to a top class level. Who else does? Alli maybe potentially? Fekir pre-injury? Hamsik before his legs started to go? Messi if he could be bothered to track back? Firmino is the easiest pick for me because he is unique to world football and that makes him irreplaceable.

All subjective of course so it's only my opinion for all 7 players. But I'd love to hear a legitimate counter argument against any of those 7 that wasn't just a rival fan trying to get a bite. Our problem is with our squad depth. Our first XI is not far off being the best in Europe.


4.) 26 Jan 2019 18:57:53
You forgot Suarez MK. He looked like he was playing 8,9,10 and 11 at times!
Shame he couldn’t keep his teeth to himself 🤦🏼‍♂️.


5.) 26 Jan 2019 19:34:46
I wouldn't say Suarez does that anymore Bobby, but you are right. He used to. Nowadays he is more an out and out striker.


6.) 26 Jan 2019 19:37:38
Yes, you are right MK. To be honest I can't remember the exact words the ed used, but for me Fabinho should be in the list when we talk about our best players, Robbo too.


7.) 26 Jan 2019 19:44:38
Adam, when i read your post, i immediately thought "at least one of those can't be right", but when I thought about who would be higher in the list, you're right, i can't think of 5 better players in each of those positions. Robbo might be the weakest of the choices, but the lack of competent lb's probably gets him in.


8.) 26 Jan 2019 19:46:49
MK really enjoyed that read. And you put forward a great argument. For information I am a massive fan of all the players below.

I’m not going to lie I’ve never actually seen Fab at Rb so I cannot comment on that. As a Dm he’s been great for us the last couple of months. There are not many great Dm out there so he might very well be in that top 5. For me if he continues his form he will not be far off the best one out there in Kante.

Mane I’m a massive fan of and on his day could easily be argued that he’s top 5. But that could be said about a lot of players in his position worldwide.

Firmino for me is world class and suited to our team. But would he do the same job and score the same goals at another club like City that Aguero does. Or Kane at Spurs, or Suarez / Messi at Barca, Lewandowski at Bayern, Ronaldo at Juve or Cavani at PSG.

The rest I agree with top 5 easily due to their quality and consistency.


9.) 26 Jan 2019 20:03:28
Crazy isn't it Rugby Parker. I tried to think of 5 myself and I could barely get 2 in some of their cases.

With Salah all I had ahead of him was Messi.

With Mane I only had Hazard and Mbappe.

With Robertson I was deliberating Alex Sandro, Alaba and Marcelo. I couldn't order them though. They all leave gaps behind them at times but as you say the quality of left backs is low in world football.

With Fabinho all I had was Kimmich, Hysaj and Azpilicueta at RB, or Kante in DM.

With Virgil I had Varane level and nobody else near to either of them.

With Alisson I had De Gea and Oblak level, maybe marginally ahead.

And with Firmino I couldn't think of anyone close enough to him positionally to make a fair comparison.

JK23, I genuinely think all of those teams would sign Firmino in a heartbeat. Fabinho is a monster at right back. First choice there for Brazil.


10.) 26 Jan 2019 20:06:27
MK sorry to disagree but sturridge is no game changer anymore, hide and seek champion maybe but game changer definitely not! I loved sturridge but after the game with wolves it just highlighted his lack of desire to play for us, wether it’s the style or he’s lost something I don’t know? But I honestly think for his sake he needs to move on and try and revive his career with someone else and I honestly hope he comes good somewhere else but I never want to see him play for us again because his last performance was pathetic. I’m not basing it on his last performance as most of his games of late have been the same, but the wolves game where he should of stood out and lead from the front but went hiding just showed he’s lost interest.


11.) 26 Jan 2019 20:14:02
Pegleg that was my point mate, you're agreeing with me 😂 Game changer is too vague. Sturridge is not what I'd consider to be a top player. Not even close. But he came on against Chelsea earlier this season and smashed in a 25 yard screamer to change the game. So I disagree with using that phrase to categorise who our best players are.


12.) 26 Jan 2019 21:19:38
Mk would you have Fab in ahead of Taa at Rb then? Just looking at our starting line up in our must not lose City game less than a month ago and Klopp chose not to play Fab at Rb or Dm. He’s also replaced Bobby with a RW at striker this season.


13.) 26 Jan 2019 23:11:52
In the top 5 means World Class, obviously, MKS, so I think you are being a tad generous with Robertson and Fabinho, just yet. I think Mendy, Filipe Luis and Kurzawa will have a word to say before you place Robbo ahead of them. And I think the same about Ndidi, Fernandinho, Doucoure, Matic and Torreira having something to say if you place Fabinho just behind Kante (why are we even looking at him at RB if he hasn't played a single game for us over there, yet? ) .

Don't get me wrong. These two players are spectacular for us right now and I wouldn't change them for anyone else. I just think they are not so "head and shoulders above the rest" like our other 5 seem to be.


14.) 27 Jan 2019 00:19:57
Yeah I love Klopp JK, but he bottled it by dropping Fabinho. He went back to the tried and tested, played it safe, and it backfired.


15.) 27 Jan 2019 00:56:59
Interesting read that, agree with most of the comments, but got to big up my man Firminio, trying to argue he's the best in his position (role) is easy as nobody in world football does what he does he's a one off and as long as he's given freedom he'd improve any team anywhere.


16.) 27 Jan 2019 00:58:17
Give Bobby the keys to the city . The bloke in unbelievable.


17.) 27 Jan 2019 01:09:00
ArAy, I'll give you Felipe Luis as a reasonable suggestion. Kurzawa not a chance though; not yet. Mendy, I have always maintained is not as good as Robertson. I said it at the time when both signed for City/ Liverpool and I stand by it. He is anonymous defensively; bordering on incompetent actually.

Ndidi, Doucoure, Matic and Torreira are miles off Fabinho. Literally miles, and if they had anything to say about that they'd be on a wind up. Fernandinho is very good though and I would've included him if he wasn't lucky to escape two yellow cards most weeks. He's probably just top 5, but not as good as Fab for me.

I genuinely think people are just scared to admit we have some of the best players in the world because they're scared of disappointment. A team with only 5 world class players would not be pushing this City team like we are. Because Ederson, Laporte, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Silva, Sterling, Sane and Aguero are all world class players.


18.) 27 Jan 2019 03:40:20
Love the spirit here, but honestly think that’s a bunch of rose tinted glasses mate. To a Liverpool fan like you and I, absolutely these players are TOP draw and I wouldn’t replace any of them. But if you ask a neutral, very few will agree with your assessment across the board.

For example, people saying only Mbappe and Hazard are forgetting there exist players like Greizmann, potentially Dembele, Lozano, Sterling, Sane, Suarez, Alexis Sanchez, Perisic and many more.


19.) 27 Jan 2019 08:12:33
Mk agree with what you say on the city selection and the midfield 3 Klopp picked was disappointing considering the run and form some of the others were in. That’s what I love about this site. Getting to read everyone’s opinions regardless of whether they are against mine and to be honest quite a few people have swayed some of my thinking.


20.) 27 Jan 2019 08:56:08
MKS, it's all very subjective, as you well know, so you and I do see some things differently. I'm not afraid at all to say that we have an amazing squad right now. The table does not lie; we are not on top due to luck or the others under-performing. We thoroughly and completely deserve to be where we are.

Perhaps I am saying that "the system" we play with is the real champion or reason for our success? A combination of superior footballers playing in a well oiled system that utilizes their individual abilities and talents? Did we have 7 World class players last season? Or has "the system" (and adjusting or adapting it) pushed the team up to that much of a higher level?

Maybe I've watched way too much football over the years and have become a little too pragmatic than I would like to be. A team with 7 World class players that is yet to win any title yet? My preference is to whisper such words rather than go into the town square and beat the drum, about it. But you and I can go out into the town and raise hell about it once we win EPL and CL this season. 😉.


21.) 27 Jan 2019 10:00:47
Last season I'd say we had 4 ArAy. Robbo was not at that level quite, and Fabinho and Alisson had yet to sign.

Klopping, of all those players you listed only Ousmane Dembele, Sanchez (and frankly, I'd say you are crazy if you'd swap either of them for Mane), Perisic and Sane play the same position as Mane. Sanchez has 4 goals in 12 months, and Dembele couldn't get a game 5 months ago. Sane is a fair shout though and I'd dare say most non-reds would put him ahead of Mane. I'd always pick Mane because I think his form is less patchy than the younger, inconsistent Sane. Mane also protects his full back far better. But that's a reasonable argument. Perisic is a really strange suggestion. You know he has 3 goals this season right? He's a good player but not even in the same debate as Mane, Sane, Hazard and Mbappe.

Sterling and Lozano are both mainly right wingers and only Sterling out of them is actually a better right winger than Mane. Lozano is living off the hype of one world cup goal. He's still not scoring as many goals in Holland as Jozy Altodore managed. Remember Assaidi?

Suarez is a striker. Unless you meant Dennis? In which case get help!

ArAy, I think you are not the only person against publically admitting our players are world class. These suggestions are getting desperate now 😂.


22.) 27 Jan 2019 10:03:37
Oh Klopping, I missed Griezmann. He's a central striker too so if you want to argue he is better than Salah, go for it!


23.) 27 Jan 2019 12:21:53
GK-Alisson/ Oblak/ DeGea/ Stegen/ Courtois
LB-Robertson/ Alaba/ A. Sandro/ J. Alba/ Marcelo

He'll be 28 next year. If we assume he has another good final season, and he leaves for 150 million, I think that'll be good business for us. We also will have a year to find a replacement.

You make a very good point about injury, ed, I can't argue with that. Injury before the season is even underway would be devastating. In an ideal world, those players in our squad who aren't regularly starting would be able to play in the cup matches and provide real quality. We didn't have that against Wolves and I feel we paid the price. Perhaps someone like Brewster should have started instead of Sturridge (but he may have still been injured) . You make very good points and I can't argue with them, I will be watching the Community Shield wincing at times. That said, I'd love to see us win, I still can't take it as a friendly like most supporters on here. You mention other stars like Tiger Woods, but I bet you Federer in his prime would have been mopping up every minor tournament as he builds up to a grand slam.

Another vote against Gerrard. What a step down that would be.

Klopp is currently one of the best managers in the world. I don't see Gerrard ever reaching that level.

Brilliant read, thanks!

Am I right in thinking going into administration is where the club basically dies? Then you end up with a new club like FC Liverpool, or something? That would have been heartbreaking.

Also, it says Gareth Barry was considered for left-back, why was this? Was he not considered as Xabi's replacement instead? Xabi was my favourite ever Liverpool midfielder, so I always thought this would have been madness if Barry was the replacement.
