So we don't want to give hendo a contract now. If i say something on this, with regards to the american ownership, id be termed xenophobic.
This shouldn't even have been news. Hendo doesn't even need to ask for it, he deserves whatever deal he wants and am pretty sure he isn't asking for the moon and stars.


{Ed025's Note - he still has 2 years to go Akira so there is no rush, he will be at liverpool for a good while yet mate..

1.) 19 Jul 2021 17:08:58
Well maybe go read first, no one is saying we don't want to give hendo a contract, talks started awhile ago and no conclusion yet, he's still 2 years left on his current deal so there's also no rush. Nowhere has any report said we don't want to give him a contract. Not like Liverpool fans to jump the gun or have no patience now is it. holy christ.

2.) 19 Jul 2021 17:10:07
Or maybe FSG aren't the ones who decide whether or not to hand out new contracts to the players? The owners have done plenty wrong in there time here but these baseless digs feel more like you wanting to have a go at the ownership instead of any substantial criticism.

3.) 19 Jul 2021 17:14:11
Have you read the article? It's speculative fluff with loads of 'coulds' and 'possibles' in it and parallels drawn to Wijnaldum (despite the fact that Hendo already has a contract until he's 33 whilst Gini's ended when he was 30.Suggesting the club views Hendo differently) .

If you joined the #FSGout crowd on Twitter over this, I wouldn't accuse you of being xenophobic, I'd accuse you of being a twit.

Plenty of things with which to take issue with FSG without going at them over absolutely nothing.

4.) 19 Jul 2021 17:25:15
I posted about these earlier and I said I love Henderson I hope he stays as long as possible but I don’t think we should offer him a contract these summer we should see how he goes over the next 18 months. Last season Henderson was injured for 12 weeks and the season before 10 weeks and if this carries on it would be very silly of the club to give him a longer contract and tie up wage budget on a player as he enters the final part of his career and starts to miss more than he plays. The club needs to be run with a head and not a heart Bob paisley was very ruthless in that way and that’s what kept us at the top and Fergy was the same at Utd.

{Ed025's Note - i think hes important in the dressing room grino and even when he finishes i expect him to still be part of the furniture mate, he could still play on past his contract on a lower wage or even pay as you play basis, there are options i feel..

5.) 19 Jul 2021 17:27:53
It's comical how people can interpret an article like that into sold fact that is definitely happening.
Even after all the years of people acknowledging crap on Tw@tter and clickbait sites, they're still gullible enough to believe the crap they read.

6.) 19 Jul 2021 17:31:09
Loyalty is over rated. IF Hendo can carry on like Milner the sure, and if not, in two years time perhaps he can make his long awaited move to Fulham.

7.) 19 Jul 2021 17:33:17
Don't get all jumpy on this news. It's probably sensationalised to get attention. If we can keep Milner who is 35, I'm pretty sure we can keep Hendo if his demands are reasonable. So, I'm confident we'll get things sorted out in the near future.

8.) 19 Jul 2021 17:36:54
Please read the other posts (both Rumours and Banter) about this, Harry.

9.) 19 Jul 2021 19:18:43
If true, isn’t this a dream come true for you mr. sideways Henderson!

10.) 19 Jul 2021 19:20:25
I agree how important he is ed025 I hope he stays fit and in the team am just saying with his injury record there is no rush to renew his contract. Let him carry on with his contract for at least this season to check his injuries out if he stays fit most of the season then give him a new deal but if he keeps getting long injuries then some sort of pay as you play deal can be sorted out if not let him play his final year out at let him have a free transfer to get a good deal somewhere else but missing 10 and 12 weeks a season is to much if it carries on.
We could have sold Origi after the champions league victory and got a good fee for him more than what he was worth as his value had gone up after a few important goals but instead we ran the club with are heart and give him a new contract and he has hardly played his value has gone down by at least half.

11.) 19 Jul 2021 18:12:52
If Liverpool were reluctant to give Gini Wijnaldum a big new deal, and he played every single game, it’s not a huge shock that they’re in a similar boat with an often-injured Jordan Henderson.

12.) 19 Jul 2021 20:16:33
Plus Henderson is only on £140k/ w. It’ll likely be one of his last contracts and he could probs get double if not a bit more elsewhere.

13.) 19 Jul 2021 20:42:16
It’s Klopp who didn’t want to keep Gini.

14.) 19 Jul 2021 21:19:00
@fuser, Hendo would not get £300k a week somewhere else. He's got 2 years left on his contract, he's not a free transfer where clubs pay higher wages as they don't have to pay a transfer fee.

@markp, Klopp wanted to keep Gini, 100%.

15.) 19 Jul 2021 22:17:09
Sean, Klopp tried to sell Gini 2 years ago. If Klopp wanted Gini he would have stayed.

16.) 19 Jul 2021 18:11:38
If we are signing 5 of our best players to contracts leading them into age 33-34
We are hoping for more than a little luck

5 players + a 35 year old Henderson on > £10m a year contracts

Peak title winning age is 27-28.

{Ed025's Note - age is just a number spaceman, these days players, even the more experienced ones are as fit as butchers dogs mate..

17.) 20 Jul 2021 07:05:55
@seanireland, Henderson is definitely in the same bracket of player as Kante/ Saul etc and they are and have been for years on contracts of 300k. Hendo’s age is now against him slightly but you can’t say if Utd/ PSG/ Real/ etc signed him tomorrow he wouldn’t be on 200-250 at least.

18.) 21 Jul 2021 20:33:57
@fuser, you said double £140k or more in your post. Now you are dropping to a more realistic £200k which is fair enough, I could definitely see that.

@markp, in my opinion Klopp really liked Gini and wanted to keep him. I believe he understood the clubs reluctance to commit to a big wage and a long-term contract from a business sense but I think he would have preferred to have kept him. In terms of trying to sell him 2 years ago I presume that's Keita replacing him - Gini played almost every minute the season just gone and Keita was barely used when available.



18 Jul 2021 07:34:40
Some sources are saying madrid have enquired about vvd and have been given a straight no by liverpool.
Also a lazio are looking at keita on loan.


1.) 18 Jul 2021 09:43:19
It’s either cash or hit the road for Keita, if we loan him he’ll turn into the new Markovic.

2.) 18 Jul 2021 11:52:50
It will beVery difficult to sell him though, without a huge loss. He has 3 years on his contract and if we loan him and it works out for him A) he gets his playing time which i doubt he will with us. B) we can sell him on comparatively less loss.
In current climate i don't see anyone bidding for him.

3.) 18 Jul 2021 11:58:49
I can't see there being a single team on the planet would honestly believe they could prise Van Dijk away from Liverpool at this moment.
Clickbait, and folks will always fall for it.

4.) 18 Jul 2021 12:52:53
I'd be very open to a Keita loan. The player has confidence and training issues. I'd like to see if those can be worked out some before resorting to moving him at a huge financial loss.

5.) 18 Jul 2021 13:24:03
VVD, like Salah and Mane may want one last big move, and so it is not beyond the realms of possibility that he could leave in the next year or so. The wheels keep turning no matter who comes and goes. That is until Klopp leaves and we end up with a manager half as good as he is.

6.) 18 Jul 2021 13:40:45
Keita has been a disappointment and i know he's not popular on here but were too light in that position and he still too good and will be needed too much this season to be simply loaned out. i think he'll be here next season because no one is going to offer us enough to be tempted into selling him.

7.) 18 Jul 2021 13:58:29
I reckon Naby gets one more season, but competing with whoever we bring in, and down the pecking order. If that does not motivate him to try harder, then he is accepting that his future lies in a mid table side as a nearly man. This is why it is imperative that we buy a starter for MF.

8.) 18 Jul 2021 16:01:41
Sell him, take a hit, better that than the farcical situations we had with Markovic and Bert Water where they came in in big money, did nothing and went on pointless loans which came to nothing, get rid, the man is a waste of space.

9.) 18 Jul 2021 19:49:43
Recent experience (Markovic, Grujic, Wilson etc etc) has shown us that Edwards will go into an endless series of loans rather than sell below his perceived value of players or lack of buyers. True, the economic environment has changed drastically, and I expect him to adjust his prices downwards, but still not sell if the lower prices are not achieved. Anything is possible. Keita could end up on loan or Edwards could pull a rabbit out of the hat once again. To me Keita is more like a nuisance that is distracting from development of players like Thiago, Curtis Jones, and Ox. Also a distraction if you consider potential incomings like Saul Niguez, Renato Sanchez or whoever else is going to come in.



03 Jul 2021 17:51:48
We have moved on grabara to fc copenhagen on a 3m fee. Good luck to the lad.


1.) 03 Jul 2021 18:42:00
3million for him, 1.3 for millar. I reckon only another 50 to 60 reserve players to be sold and then Mbappe is in the bag.

Tough away game today but a win is must now that chelsea and united have lost. Should be doable tonite, grab an early season advantage just a boost for the boys and the fans. Brings in belief if anything.

I do still want to be underdogs, but yea i win would cement that we have the best team in the league despite not going big in the window.


1.) 25 Sep 2021 15:26:37
Ball is firmly in our court tonight after the other results. Regardless of performance if we get the 3 points we lay a marker that pressure doesn’t effect us. If we don’t win it’ll look like we couldn’t handle the pressure. Any team can beat any team on the day and Brentford are a good side. But we are a great side. If we want to win the league it’s games like this where the pressure is slightly turned up we have to win.

2.) 25 Sep 2021 16:16:32
Agreed JK we need the 3 points. If we give a excellent account of ourselves well then all the better but the 3 points are first and foremost.

3.) 25 Sep 2021 17:09:52
Being 3 pts ahead or behind at this stage doesn't matter. If players are getting affected by this psychologically then I worry for their focus.

But picking up 3 pts against teams like Brentford is essential to sustain a proper title challenge.

4.) 25 Sep 2021 19:37:05
Well we truly screwed that up. We desperately needed the win for what can only be a really tough match next week.

5.) 25 Sep 2021 23:35:21
Messed that up royally, didn’t we? Absolute shambles defensively and for the umpteenth time, wasteful up top. Must do better.

6.) 26 Sep 2021 01:17:27
I think Mane should have been taken off, not Jones. Poor for most of last season and nothing has changed this season.

7.) 26 Sep 2021 01:27:56
Hahn physiologically we looked spent tonight. Worst I’ve seen is defend since Villa. Not an over reaction because we drew but just giving my honest thoughts. Defending tonight was Sunday league standard at times.



06 Sep 2021 18:58:46
So after the dismal window, first international break in and we have three players injured and one player caught up in political mess.
Literally who writes our luck!
I really thought we have a decent squad to be honest but again we are an injury away from absolute calamity.


1.) 06 Sep 2021 19:23:56
Good job we only have to worry about a game of football and not being caught up in a coup. That’d be a real calamity.

2.) 06 Sep 2021 19:47:38
Hahaha just couple of games and self-indulgents are out? 🙈😂 It seems like we lost all our games which we played so far 😆😆.

3.) 06 Sep 2021 19:48:35
Akira change the record, bro. Are you going to spend the whole season whinging about transfers or get behind the team? Naby is stranded in Guinea due to a military coup BUT hey, to each his own priorities in life, I guess 🙄.

4.) 06 Sep 2021 20:05:10
Elliott and Minamino have knocks from what i can gather. Will probably have fitness tests for Leeds this weekend. Bobby has a minor hamstring injury which is at worst going to be 6 weeks.

Christ, i know last season made people a bit funny about injuries but this is absolutely normal for any team and exactly why we have a 27 man senior squad. How ever will we cope with only 24 players for 1 game!

5.) 06 Sep 2021 20:13:56
Shall we al panic just now or wait and see how Klopp handles it?

6.) 06 Sep 2021 20:20:02
Dismal window hahaha. Wonder how the window with Adrian, Lonergan, Elliott and Sepp VDB turned out. Also footballers getting injured shocker. You're right though, 1 more injury and the club may as well forfeit games due to the absolute calamity.

7.) 06 Sep 2021 21:18:32
Oh no, we will have to start salah mane jota henderson Thiago and fabinho.

8.) 06 Sep 2021 21:56:20
Nice one Firmane. Plus first choice back 4 and keeper. Basically we are full strength.

9.) 06 Sep 2021 23:01:49
Can’t believe we didn’t sign an extra midfielder just incase one of our players got caught up in a political coup. FSG, Klopp and Edwards out!

10.) 07 Sep 2021 00:29:53
Yea just like every other club.

11.) 07 Sep 2021 00:33:39
Love how all the whinging children have declared that the injury crisis that they all predicted is finally here. Not putting words in your mouth Akira but in general i’ve seen a lot of hysteria about it and it’s utterly embarrassing. You’d think our entire squad were out with ACL injuries. Firmino’s is probably only going to be one or two games as per Paul Joyce, Elliotts was a knock he picked up against Chelsea, Keita temporarily cannot leave Guinea, Jones suffered a concussion a few weeks ago, and i’m not sure about Milner and Minamino. Apparently it’s a season defining injury crisis and it is really going cause us problems during AFCON, you know that tournament that doesn’t even begin for another half a year?

People are just looking for any reason to moan at this point and would rather see Liverpool do badly if it means that their whining can be justified. Tiring.

12.) 07 Sep 2021 00:38:07
I heard the coup was instigated by Jordan Pickford as well….

13.) 07 Sep 2021 07:01:25
James Milneris suiting up with the Marines to go get Keita back.

14.) 07 Sep 2021 08:16:24
The marines called Millie and asked him to lead the operation.

Get used to it, Akira. Pretty sure you have your knives well sharpened and your well functioning vocal chords at the ready to moan when we eventually don’t sign anyone tmrw.



30 Aug 2021 06:04:04
Two days to change our season.


{Ed0666's Note - why is Pickford trying to maim our vice captain again?

1.) 30 Aug 2021 06:08:52
Hard to see where the money is coming from. Origi is staying. Philips is priced out, Nobody would touch OX and Keita. We made it very late.

{Ed0666's Note - stop acting like you’re the headliner at a funeral because hope springs eternal. And if we don’t sign anyone don’t worry we have enough bodies to be there or thereabouts maybe!

2.) 30 Aug 2021 06:17:07
You were crying for two signings yesterday Ed066. seems Okay with what we have now 😅😅😅.

{Ed0666's Note - I’m a realist buddy. Hope has a shelf life 😂

3.) 30 Aug 2021 06:26:19
Come on guys. Let’s stop all the moaning, it could be a lot worse - we could be Arsenal 😂.

4.) 30 Aug 2021 08:59:34
What Akira? You want us to start losing?

5.) 30 Aug 2021 09:17:38
Oh we will start loosing but by then it will be too late.

6.) 30 Aug 2021 11:35:14
Jeez Akira, save our season? We've won 2 and drew 1 fs, what needs saving? Resl drama queen you are aren't you?



28 Aug 2021 16:33:51
Why do arsenal persist with xhaka? I really feel for arsenal. As a team you could only go up from where they are but jeez talk about giving up on the pitch.

Even Pep had to sympathize for arteta and put in an excuse for him.
Cant help but feel a bit for him. He has no clue and his players don't want to play for him.
First sack if the season?

This is the Liverpool page.

2.) 28 Aug 2021 16:40:44
Have to say that the game highlights the inconsistent refereeing, he was sent off for a challenge that didn’t even get a booking the other week against Burnley on Elliot.

3.) 28 Aug 2021 16:41:43
Why do Arsenal persist with Arteta must be the question?

4.) 28 Aug 2021 16:51:59

I am still saying we should sign traore. Contrary to many here i think he is an exactly what we need.
Pace and power and he can provide salah/ mane with much needed rest along with jota. Especially now given our CL group means every Tuesday/ Wednesday we are going to face a champion team and we would need cover for the weekend epl tie or atleast an option on bench.
If the price is right we can go for him but i don't want this to be a jota type deal. We overpaid for jota based on future income and that's a dangerous path if we continue doing that for more players.
If we sell origi and philips and we can get traore with no 'net spend' i think we have a good deal. His end product can improve but i don't think he is lazy. I think he will work under a Manager that will motivate him to work and kloppo is the best man for that.

He left brotherhood and his home. You would never know coutinho seems a player who works when he feels at home. He felt at home at liverpool.

He did throw a proper tantrum but club got awful lot of money form him which the owners reinvested and it brought us success.

Despite his age and injuries liverpool is his home and home will always welcome you back.
So if he comes its just the little magician returning for me and all is forgiven.

The way we are able to score this seems like a year we can win the CL or a cup.
The defense is no where near a title. Everytime opposition has a go it seems they will score.
I think vvd needs rest and gomez, konate need to start.

This is long thread but i will write it again. The player seemed not wanting to go and the club did not get the money they wanted.
That is why the transfer didn't happen and it suits both parties.
We don't have money and wanted to only cash in on divvy for signing a new player and what do you think 10 million would have bought?
You know chelsea got close to 40 mill for tammy abraham.
Why undervalue our own? Especially when they are content and not pushing for a move? Would 10 million be enough to fund any move?
Ya all would have lost your mind if we sold divvy for 10 and failed to bring anyone in which would have been the case as 10 million is nothing.

He is 24. Can score 10-15 goals for any team a season and is injury free.
Those stats are def worthy of 20 million. Considering how much money westham spent on haller, chelsea on lukaku and the list for striker goes on, Origi is well worth 20 million.

The player does not want to go and the club are not getting the offer they need for him so it suits both parties and he stays. I don't get what the noise is about.
He stays and will play as and when needed. Not many new signings would have been content with that.
And also he is probably the longest serving guy on our books after hendo if am nor wrong.
