I told you mane is talking to two clubs.
My other two pieces of info are cody gakpo (excuse spell) and lewandowski.

Akira1892

1.) 30 May 2022 06:52:46
Lewa would be an insane signing. Hope we focus all efforts on him and that Barcelona cannot afford him.


2.) 30 May 2022 07:10:01
Hope you’re wrong on both counts, Gakpo looks like the new Ryan Babel (which is absolutely not a compliment) and Lewandowski is an old codger with not many miles left on the clock.


3.) 30 May 2022 07:17:47
Since nobody know anything anyway, i believe you buddy, just keep them coming. This is a rumour page and it's transfer season.

Any news for midfielders?

Thanks for the info, appreciate it. :)


4.) 30 May 2022 07:41:10
VVVV, that "old codger" just scored 50 goals in 46 games 😂

If we'd had him up front in that CL final we'd have treble right now.


5.) 30 May 2022 08:17:04
Remember when ManU bought van person for one season to win the title? And before you point out his age his injury record was way worse that Lewa’s.

Could be a stroke of genius remembering we have the quick players around him like he has at Bayern.


6.) 30 May 2022 08:33:20
Not to mention converted few of draws into wins and did the quadraple lol.


7.) 30 May 2022 08:37:52
It’s an interest question re Lewa - a couple of years ago I would have said our model doesn’t need a true CF as Mane and Salah would make the runs into the box and score goals, but one or potentially both likely to move on, and Firmino getting on a bit, I think we may need to revisit. Diaz style of play is much more like a traditional winger and a target man would perhaps make a lot of sense, especially if we also start to use Elliot more down the right.


8.) 30 May 2022 09:04:43
Agree with all 3 of you. Our current squad is brilliant. Best we've ever had in my lifetime. But Lewandowski is the best striker in the world and would walk into (and vastly improve) any side in world football.

Benzema at 34 just helped Madrid to La Liga and Champions league. Suarez at 35 helped AM to La Liga last year. Ibra at 40 and Giroud at 35 just helped Milan to Serie A. Messi at 34 helped PSG reclaim Ligue 1. Ronaldo at 37 carried Man United all season.

At what point will people start to realise that the age at which players retire or start winding down is not 30 anymore?


9.) 30 May 2022 09:06:41
Nice but this has been doing the rounds for a week on Reddit so hardly new news, Mane is off to whoever pays the most. Breaking!


10.) 30 May 2022 09:10:49
Not exactly been all over the internet for the last few weeks.


11.) 30 May 2022 09:08:47
Yeah I don’t prescribe to the age thing at all. He is still producing. I wouldn’t expect the same numbers here but I’d expect he would fit in seamlessly and that our attack would start to look more in sync around the box imo. We’ve always lacked that consistent cutting edge around the box and a target like Lewa could be a great signing.


12.) 30 May 2022 10:18:12
I wouldn't care if Lewandowski only played 1 season and there was 'no resale value'. The man is proven talent (50/ 46 last season) and more importantly, has played under and loves Klopp.

{Ed0666's Note - would he post outrageous figures in the premiership tho?


13.) 30 May 2022 10:22:09
£50m for a 34 year old is a hard pass. Sorry, it just is. We’re talking about a man in the last throws of his career. Scoring a truckload of goals in the Bundesliga is no guarantee that he’ll do it here either, Timo Werner, Jadon Sancho and Sebastian Haller are a testament to that. The premier league is faster and a more physically demanding league than Germany and he won’t have the time or space he had over there. If we’re going to blow £50m+ on a player at least make it one that has miles on the clock to be able to adjust and at 34 he’ll be physically declining fairly rapidly.

A reasonable comparison is with Lionel Messi, he moved to Paris at roughly a similar point in his career, scored 30 league goals the season before he moved, then scored a measly 6 goals in 26 games this season in a new league, and arguably France is a farmers league, given PSG’s dominance. That should spell a huge warning.


14.) 30 May 2022 10:35:42
Ed0666, his job would be to at least match Salah's output, so we would be asking him to reduce his output by about 15-20%. 20 Prem goals would be an almost guarantee with him.

{Ed0666's Note - there’s no way of knowing for certain mate.


15.) 30 May 2022 11:02:40
Messi had 11 goals and 14 assists in the league and Champions league. How dreadful 🤔

Also i agree the Bundesliga is a lower standard but that doesn't stop people thinking Haaland with a far inferior goal tally and serious injury concerns, will suddenly cope with the rigours and vigours of English football. Not to mention Lewandowski had 13 goals in 10 games in the Champions Leagur last season.

I don't think he'll average a goal a game in the Prem, but he won't go from 50 in 46 games to suddenly being poor.

In terms of physical decline, what physical aspect does he rely on? And where's the evidence he's declining physically? He's got better in his 30's and is never injured.


16.) 30 May 2022 11:13:57
Ed0666's, there's sensible conclusions we can make though. If Jota can get 21 goals with that type of service from Trent and Robbo, you can only imagine what Lewandowski would get. Trent would be in fecking heaven finally having that type of player to ping balls to.


17.) 30 May 2022 11:14:14
Will our press not suffer with him leading the line though?


18.) 30 May 2022 11:56:22
That is a much more reasonable concern in my opinion, aoe.

Although, teams have to actually try and play football for you to press them. Our current side will dominate possession more often than not and that is when a player like Lewandowski can make the difference. A half chance is all he needs and he could find a yard of space in a match box.


19.) 30 May 2022 12:12:26
Victor, where does £50m come from?!

I posted yesterday - sent to the discussion page - that a straight swap with Bayern would be a dream for me. See if the old master can cut it up with the young pretender in the premier league….


20.) 30 May 2022 13:18:50
VVVV, you might make it to being a 34 year old 'old codger' some day, if you're lucky.


21.) 30 May 2022 13:23:38
So VVVV would you prefer 50 million on a Keita instead? It likely won't even get a Bowen. Don't get why you're so worried bout resale value. Are you a fan or the club accountant? And comparing Lewa to sancho, werner and haller is scraping the barrel. Mane got 23 goals in 50 odd games this season. I can see even a 35 year old Lewa surpassing that tally.


22.) 30 May 2022 15:11:19
It's a touch naive to believe that an ageing Lewandowski would arrive rock at Liverpool and outscore Sadio Mane.
It's an interesting one though because he's proven quality through and through. But if we'd be paying £50 million for him at his age (which we won't be) it makes a mockery of £25-£30 million for Mane.
We definitely wouldn't be pressing from the from in the same fashion and that's a big feature of Klopp's play, so I can't see it happening.
You never know though.


23.) 30 May 2022 15:51:58
I think the club has graduated from the strict old rule of "buy to sell-on for a profit" of the early years. It may still be an intention, but with the purchase of Thiago, the extensions given to mid-career and end-career players and the players allowed to leave on a free, tells you that this is no longer the priority for the club. They may prefer younger players but the priority seems to be buying players that can make an immediate impact, plug the holes wherever they are seen, and hit the ground running. Lewandowski certainly seems plausible to me. And let's forget the 50 goals. If he can give us 25 goals, added to the goals from the rest of the attack, it's good enough for me. And he'd be a player that many of the others could learn what "winning" is all about, because he's been at it for the longest time.


24.) 30 May 2022 16:05:05
Not sure where the 50 million figure has come from? Its nowhere near what is being asked.


25.) 30 May 2022 17:29:11
Hey Akira, do you know what sort of money is being asked? You hit the nail on the head with the Diaz transfer and I'd love to see Lewa playing for us even at his age.


26.) 30 May 2022 17:57:25
Mane lewand swap it is then, surely wages will be an issue tho.


27.) 30 May 2022 18:03:04
Like the premier league is some almighty Division 😂
Robert Lewandowski would not struggle scoring goals against Leeds, Brentford and Southampton.
Your talking about a striker who has done it constantly in the UCL over the last 10 years. He’s not Lukaku haha.


28.) 30 May 2022 19:21:32
Was mentioned above that lewa would cost 50 mill+ no way would want us to pay that but if mane wants to go and being reported that Bayern are trying to get him on cheap then they can’t complain if we get lewa for a lot less than they want with him being in same situation as mane (1year left on contract) difference being lewa has publicly came out and said he wants to leave, mane hasn’t. on eds comment on how well he would do in prem, would you say any team outside the top 6 have better defences than the teams in the bundesliga? He scores goals (a lot of goals) ronaldo got 18 goals as a number 9 in a terrible team this season and he’s not a number 9. I reckon he could easily score at least as many as ronaldo (I would be surprised if it wasn’t more) . I will admit tho the concern would be that he can’t press the way klopp would want so although I think he would do well in the prem I don’t know if we are the best fit for him (or he is best fit for us) but if klopp could find a way to fit him in then he could still get 20-30 next season.

{Ed002's Note - You all seem to have created this whole strange scenario where Lewandowski and Jarry Kane are joining Mbappe and Haaland at Liverpool - and then getting in these weird discussions where it becomes clear you have no idea where transfers work.}


 

 

27 May 2022 13:05:38
Liverpool have contacted lewandowski.

Akira1892

1.) 27 May 2022 13:17:16
Your call on diaz was impressive but no way am I willing to believe we are going for lewendowski haha sorry mate.


2.) 27 May 2022 13:26:40
Does Klopp need help with his coffee machine?


3.) 27 May 2022 14:04:08
Klopp might have contacted him though, they are pretty close.
It doesn't mean that they discussed him rocking up at Liverpool, just that Klopp maybe phoned or messaged him.


4.) 27 May 2022 14:32:03
At 33 I think that’s far too old, he’ll be 34 this year, it’s a straight no for me. Specially as Bayern want a fee of nearly £50m.


5.) 27 May 2022 15:00:49
I think players like Ibrahimovic, Messi, Suarez, Modric, Thiago Silva and Ronaldo have all proven in recent years that the age at which the truly elite players are finished, is not like it once was. Lewandowski has another 3 years at this level. If there is even a shred of a chance we could sign him, we'd be mental not to. You're talking about the best forward in Europe over the last 3 seasons. I'll drive to Munich and fetch him FOC if Ward can pull off the transfer fee and his wages 👀.


6.) 27 May 2022 15:03:46
What do we want Lewandowski for, we have enough programme sellers already.

Just been on LBC Radio, French Police are expecting upwards of 40,000 Liverpool Supporters. They also report Paris is a Sea of Red everywhere.


7.) 27 May 2022 15:21:43
Keep saying it! It’s a mad world when 32/ 33 your old and finished!


8.) 27 May 2022 15:29:23
Mane and Lewa swap? 🤔😉.


9.) 27 May 2022 15:34:10
Mane to Bayern, Lewandowski to Liverpool?


10.) 27 May 2022 16:03:42
Mane reported as being in on the verge of joining Bayern and now Lewandowski to us. There might be something in this. Lewa is simply world class, even at 33 years old. I would take him in a heartbeat.


11.) 27 May 2022 15:56:29
Mane and Lewa swap would be wild!


12.) 27 May 2022 18:09:57
Sounds like tit for tat, considering Jurgens recent comments .


13.) 27 May 2022 18:42:19
So pay a nearly 34 year old probably more than Salah is looking and a £50 million transfer fee into the bargin? I have to say it doesn't make a lot of business sense or sense in general. Lewandoski's numbers are impressive indeed, in GERMANY! He certainly won't be getting close to that in the PL. If LFC are even actually considering Lewandoski (which i doubt) i wish they would put as much effort and money into keeping Salah, who in my opinion is the best forward in Europe and he's considerably younger. 👍.


14.) 27 May 2022 19:23:56
At 34 he has what? maybe two years left at the top? He will be losing pace during that time and takes longer to recover from injury. The transfer fee will be in excess of £50m and he’ll want the thick end of £350’000-£400’000 a week. There’s literally no value to be had. If we’re going for a centre forward let’s at least go for one with miles left on the clock, like Martinez or Nunez, not an injury prone carthorse like Kane or a bloke who is entering the twilight of his career like Lewandowski.

{Ed0666's Note - we’ll said mate


15.) 27 May 2022 19:24:47
Lol sure they have, come on Akira 1892 you can do better than that!


16.) 27 May 2022 22:49:01
I'd take sane for mane.

{Ed0666's Note - Kimmich?


17.) 27 May 2022 23:50:22
Mane is staying.


18.) 28 May 2022 00:06:34
Kimmich and we would have best midfield in the world.


19.) 28 May 2022 00:59:25
The thing i don't get is fans saying "we should sign a player with a lot of years left" but then often the same people are saying "we should sell {insert name} whilst his value is at his peak". So sign a younger player just to sell them in their prime?

Are we the accountants or the supporters? When Fergie signed Van Persie he knew he had 2 years left at best with his injury record. Still did it though because Fergie was a winner and winning one league title at the expense of £30m was more important to him than worrying about sell on value and spending his entire career in a perpetual cycle of transition.

I want to win trophies. If Lewandowski only gave us 2 years, so bloody what? He'll score 70-80 goals in 2 years and we'll probably clean up in terms of medals. If he is a realistic option and we turn it down to sign a 25 year old for €30m just to sell him in 4 years anyway, what is the point? Are we just here for the banter or do people want to actually try and go past Man City?


20.) 28 May 2022 01:55:30
It’s very risky getting players at the end of their career coming to the premier league. Lewa is a class act and has been in Germany for so long but the premier league is a different kettle off fish. Shevchenko to Chelsea springs to mind and why would pay silly wages on a 33-34 year old when we can pay mane who has shown his value again to Liverpool. All this talk off mane leaving is nonsense. He loves Liverpool and we love him.


21.) 28 May 2022 07:20:42
Man Utd were awash with money, Liverpool aren't. Back then they were the Man City of the Premier League. Whether you think fans should be accounts or not, some will consider the financial side of things. Lewandowski will not score 40 goals a season with Liverpool, especially in the PL were they try to defend unlike Germany.


22.) 28 May 2022 10:28:43
Lewa makes sense if there is no net outlay ie swap for Sadio. Esp. if latter has told the club, like Lewa has, that he will not be signing a new contract (as is now being reported by some) .

It gives us 1-2 years to bring in or develop the player we want long term.


23.) 28 May 2022 12:39:15
Totally agree with MK. Lewa is one of the best 5 players in the world and free of serious injury atm. If there's a chance we must take it. Sadly like Mbappe and Haaland doubt it. Only factor may be him missing Klopp.


24.) 29 May 2022 15:23:43
Lewa looks like he's off to Barca.


 

 

22 May 2022 04:28:12
Imminent- real haggling us for salah and we sticking to our guns. I hope we don't sell him for anything under 100million.

Akira1892

1.) 22 May 2022 07:20:21
What a tactic, just before the final.
They always have some sneaky advantage and another way of ensuring Salah is not on his best form.


2.) 22 May 2022 08:11:51
Salah is far from his best spaceman. And has been for months.


3.) 22 May 2022 08:40:09
Jurgen will deal with Salah the same way he dealt with Coutinho, Wijnaldum and Emre Chan who all wanted mega bucks, there's the door close it on the way out!

Jurgen's football philosophy is the "TEAM".


4.) 22 May 2022 08:51:28
This is going to completely unsettle him. They are sneaky F*$£@&.


5.) 22 May 2022 09:13:35
Maybe it would bolster his resolve, perhaps? You know, inspire Real to show them what they’re missing.

Besides, would it be possible to lose motivation to win a third or possibly fourth (and historic) trophy of the season - and arguably the biggest one at that? Not for all the sunshine in Spain is my bet!


6.) 22 May 2022 09:19:39
Why would anyone pay 100 million for Salah? He can leave for free in 12 months.

And why would Salah sign a new contract? He can go to the highest bidder in 12 months.


7.) 22 May 2022 10:31:13
Akira, we don’t hold any ace cards here. They know he can leave for free in 12 months time and we will get nothing. We’ve been here before with Owen and McManaman (Can and Wijnaldum were slightly different, in so much as no one was really interested in making an offer to buy them when they had 12 months left), when we took a lowball offer for Owen and had accepted a low ball offer for McManaman from Barcelona which he rejected a move for.

This is literally being stuck between a rock and a hard place, he knows he’ll have his pick of clubs in 12 months time and Madrid will have worked out that he doesn’t intend to renew so will low ball us. If the worst comes to worst I only hope we don’t accept any Real Madrid trash in part exchange. There isn’t any one of their players worth taking.


8.) 22 May 2022 10:53:43
I think Mo is a professional on the pitch, he will give his all. Off the pitch, he will be keen to add his accolades.

However, was having this conversation on Friday - should he be starting in the final? He's always a threat, and Real would be thinking about him all game, but should we not be going with our form players? Diaz, Mane, Jota?


9.) 22 May 2022 10:55:57
It would make sense for Madrid. Salah for three years to back in for Mbappe in 2025 when Mbappe is just 26.


10.) 22 May 2022 11:16:48
Surely all Liverpool have to say is they won’t speak to Real Madrid about any of our players until June or am I being too simplistic?


11.) 22 May 2022 11:39:56
Or maybe he turns them down like mbappe has just done. hopefully.


12.) 22 May 2022 12:38:37
Or maybe it's all just a rumour without a shred of truth behind it?


13.) 22 May 2022 12:40:09
If you took Salah's five penalty goals away from this season's tally so far, he would be three goals behind Son of Spurs whose total goals this season does not include any penalties.


14.) 22 May 2022 13:04:27
Would you want to be the so called best player in Europe but being 2nd choice behind mbappe?


15.) 22 May 2022 14:03:03
Salah was flying before the afcon disappointment. if it wasn't for that competition and then the world cup qualifications games straight after and the contract situation he'd be fine I reckon. And his goal tally would be far better than sons. The guy has been run into the ground and needs a decent rest. If your trying to say son is a better player than mo. forget it. Good luck to mo whatever he decides going forward. Grass isn't always greener. We've been here before. and it won't be the last time either.


16.) 22 May 2022 15:01:19
The terms PSG offered Mbappe are ludicrous if true (and I suspect they are true as they were desperate not to lose him on a free), £1m basic salary + bonuses, a say in which players PSG recruit, a say in who they recruit as manager, a veto over who gets picked in the starting 11. They’re on cue to create a Messi type monster.


17.) 22 May 2022 18:58:28
VVVV, this is becoming all the more and more insane. They have already created a monster. What will his next club offer him? 2 Million per week? This is obscene and a serious reason to stop watching the game.


18.) 23 May 2022 00:43:30
Completely with you aray1969 these type of deals are pushing me further away from the game now.

In terms of money it's nothing short of a Jurgen klopp miracle that we are able to keep tabs on the likes of city who can just splash when they like. Wages will just keep going up and up and the only teams that'll be soon able to afford them are the likes of psg and city no matter what way its painted.

Something seriously needs done about it but nothing will. Isn't the uefa president best mates with the psg president or something along those lines? Says it all really.


19.) 23 May 2022 09:34:00
If he and Mane both end up leaving this summer, at least one is going to need replacing with a PL proven player.
Mo makes sense for Real, sure. He is a consummate pro, He would be past his peak by the time Mbappe joins, and would be an excellent role model and teacher for the young players . Plus its his dream. Beyond all that though, what a way to unsettle just before the final.
Real seem to always have advantages on their side.
We need a miracle to beat them next weekend, we look shot.


20.) 23 May 2022 10:48:13
Spaceman we will need to bring in at least two attacking players with good track records of fitness and scoring regularly at a decent level if Mane and Salah both leave as Divock is gone, Minamino is very likely to go as well. Leaving us very short in attacking options (Diaz, Jota, Carvalho and Firmino), and we have to get it right as well because Mane and Salah are worth around 50 goals a season in the league.


21.) 23 May 2022 18:23:14
£1 million per week. One Trevor Francis. A week. Madness.


22.) 22 May 2022 18:29:31
PSG are in real trouble if the Mbappe rumors are true. Building a squad is a very complex and coordinated process with many involved. So their football people are going to do all sorts of work to have this guy just overrule or impose decisions on them. There is no way they don't become completely dysfunctional.


 

 

19 May 2022 09:06:45
Origi is off to milan. Certified club legend.
One final winning goal in the CL final plz.

Akira1892

1.) 19 May 2022 09:11:23
I best get thinking on who will replace him as a cult hero. He has provided us many memorable moments and I think he will do very well in Milan. I reckon he grabs one against Wolves, hopefully we have the game well wrapped up so he can get 30 mins and enjoy the reception he deserves.


2.) 19 May 2022 10:51:58
Kostas Tsimikas for me. Likeable guy, very able deputy to Robbo and scored a cup winning pen already.


3.) 19 May 2022 11:35:25
Taki has to be worth a shout. He has only played about 10 minutes all season and is our top scorer in the domestic cups. Seems like a decent guy, rocks up, puts in a shift and then waits for about 20 matches for his next 2 minute cameo.


 

 

16 May 2022 18:54:58
Hey fans just passing on some info.

Liverpool have submitted a substantial offer for cody gakpo.

Also klopp wants to add tonali of milan. But milan won't sell. They want to sell kessie though.

For all that is have been told that club is pretty much prepared to loose both mane and salah in same window and refresh the front line than loose them one by one.
Also not talked on here enough mane’s new contract demands are significant. He is also talking to 2 clubs.
Club is ready to go big this summer in the market if top stars donot agree contract extentions. Liverpool board is clear nobody is leaving on a free.

Akira1892

1.) 16 May 2022 20:51:42
kessie has already agreed to join barcelona according to reports.


2.) 16 May 2022 21:08:12
Kessie is out of contract so they won’t be selling him will they. Somebody is telling fibs me thinks.


3.) 16 May 2022 21:18:14
I’d rather we bought Tchouameni than Tonali, I’m afraid we’d be signing another mummies boy who gets homesick and cries off the first time he goes to tackle someone. As for Gakpo, let Arsenal overpay for him.


4.) 16 May 2022 22:55:18
In fairness to Akira he absolutely nailed it with Diaz, so the lad has good form.


5.) 16 May 2022 23:19:27
Yeah he Wass right on the money with the fee also.


6.) 17 May 2022 03:19:58
Liverpool are not interested in the french lad. But we have funds and are ready to make significant investments if top stars don't agree extensions. Liverpool have offered salah a huge deal but he is yet to put pen to paper.


7.) 17 May 2022 07:33:59
Thank you for sharing Akira appreciate you passing on the information.


8.) 17 May 2022 08:14:43
Overlooking Tchouameni for someone like Tonali would be extremely negligent. Tonali is about as fast and mobile as the QE2 and not at all suited to the premier league. That and I still have nightmares about us signing Bert Water. I think it is clear that our midfield needs attention with aging players (Henderson, Milner Thiago) and ones who aren’t really effective enough (Keita, Ox, Jones), the logical signing would be Tchouameni as he can play 6 or 8 quite easily and at 22 he’s only going to keep getting better.

Tchouameni by all accounts elsewhere is the main target, and the best fit, from what i can tell. What happened to Neuhaus? He looks to be a good rotation with Thiago, for those many games he misses through injury.

I have not enjoyed the cut of Salah's self centred jib lately. His post match after the Villarreal smacked of Me me me, as did his recent post about being the best. All at a time when his form is down the toilet.
The team is greater than any one part, and if Mane and Mo want one last big move, let them go, but not for nowt.


10.) 17 May 2022 11:23:44
Tonali would be an excellent signing. Good range of passing, very agile, huge amounts of energy, and very good defensively. He'd be a perfect player on the side of our midfield in the Hendo or the Thiago role. No way Milan will sell him though in my opinion.

I haven't seen enough of Tchouameni to debate who is better, but anybody trying to imply Tonali is anything other than an absolute baller needs to watch AC Milan more closely in my opinion! VVVV especially suggesting he is virtually immobile just smacks of never having watched him play. Some of his main assets are his mobility and defensive involvements such as pressures and interceptions.

Never seen Gakpo play so won't comment on that rumour other than to say it suggests Mane might be on his way. All i know is what i've read, which is that he is left winger who can play as a striker.


11.) 17 May 2022 13:40:51
Either that or Klopp sees Gakpo as a striker. Or maybe Mane stays and plays on the right wing.


12.) 17 May 2022 15:32:44
Actually there are a couple of clubs (i have no idea which) that are talking to mane (i don't know if this is with his agent or what) . However, There are absolutely zero enquiries for salah. I don't get why he isn't signing a new deal. Any ways as told before his agent has p. ed someone very high up in liverpool and salah’s post afcon form has not helped his cause.
Unfortunately lads i think we might have to stick around with this drama for another year.


13.) 17 May 2022 15:38:09
Thanks, Akira. I hope we don't lose both Mane and Salah this summer together.


14.) 17 May 2022 17:20:24
It sure fits the profile of what we're looking at. Highly skilled versatile midfielders who can contribute on either side of the midfield, but also serve as a successor to Fabinho while providing cover/ relief at the same time. I prefer Tchouameni, but Tonali intrigues me too.

The rest of that sentence goes. nil, Manchester City five.


2.) 11 May 2022 07:25:59
To be honest I was impressed with Villas effort levels last night. If they play like that against City the last game of the season then City could have a tough afternoon.


3.) 11 May 2022 07:35:01
Even more to the point we seem to have gone back to not playing particularly well but still getting results. Almost always a positive but we will need to play considerably better than that if we are to get a result in either upcoming finals.


4.) 11 May 2022 08:14:41
Westwood666 you are totally right. Not played well these last few weeks, infact have been distinctly average but got the job done. And ilon Saturday im not sure we will need to be more than we have been recently to win as Chelsea have been as poor. But would love a win with a dynamic performance to take momentum in to the CL final. We can't be average against Madrid.


5.) 11 May 2022 08:22:44
@JK
Villa would play the same way and with intensity but city will spank them.

Ed001 where art thou mate? Its a smacking month of April. If we do the quadruple there has to be a super celebration planned on this site pretty please!

Akira1892

{Ed001's Note - if we do the quadruple you are right we would have to come up with something!}


1.) 03 Apr 2022 08:28:01
On that note, any thoughts on a site wide catch up/ charity gootball match?

{Ed001's Note - could be a good idea, there is certainly a need for charity right now for places like Ukraine and Palestine.}


2.) 03 Apr 2022 08:34:08
Yes, we should all go the pub and celebrate.

Have pubs in various locations around the globe and we make a pilgrimage to pay tribute to what will be an historic achievement.

There have been some tough days on here and it would be great to remedy that with outpourings of utter joy.

I remember the Fagan treble and then the team from down the roads treble. I never thought either achievement would be equalled, let alone surpassed.

However, Man City can still do the treble. Technically so can Chelsea, although the league looks improbable for them right now. So let’s enjoy the ride, it’s going to be bumpy!


3.) 03 Apr 2022 08:54:13
I think there would be a lot of support for something like that Ed, particularly after the last 2 years. We can even let Harry wear his City shirt for the match.

{Ed001's Note - good idea.}


4.) 03 Apr 2022 09:16:21
I really hope we win the league more than anything else. The Title we won felt hollow and we could barely celebrate because of all that was going on. It didn't help that we knew we would win it for about 6 months before it actually was won either. It was even longer until the trophy was lifted in an empty stadium. Obviously it was still great but i just feel we were robbed of the full emotional package that winning the league should bring. I'll happily take winning the league on the last day of the season at a packed Anfield please!


5.) 03 Apr 2022 10:49:17
Same MK. I can't wait to celebrate if we do win that league. If we do it I think it will rank as one of the best ever. Big if though.


6.) 03 Apr 2022 11:01:52
Couldn’t agree more on the league. After 30 years of wait the way we won it and couldn’t celebrate left a little sour taste. The players, the manager, all the staff and especially the fans are owed that open top bus parade with the Premier League title.


7.) 03 Apr 2022 12:35:42
If we win all four I can’t imagine how packed Liverpool would be on the parade people will travel from all over the world. Probably would be the biggest party ever. And if Everton go down they would stay indoors to make space for the hoards. We can dream but I would be happy with just the league and champions league not much to ask!

Give matip a lifetime deal. He gels the whole team.

Akira1892

1.) 25 Feb 2022 09:50:41
Until he gets another injury.


2.) 25 Feb 2022 10:20:07
He's criminally under rated. His runs from deep force teams out of shape trying to close him down. Leeds had no answer for him yesterday. And when Virgil played Alisson in to trouble, Matip was there to mop up and prevent James having a tap in.

For me he is comfortably our 2nd best centre back. Konate and Gomez have a long way to go before they force him out the team despite being decent for their relatively young ages. I just pray Matip stays fit as that's held him back from reaching his potential alongside Virgil. His 21 league appearances this season are 2 more than he managed in the last couple of seasons combined (10 and 9).

So whilst i'd love him to stay, we also have to be sensible because of his age and injury record. As in, don't just throw money at him. An incentive/ bonus based contract would be more sensible as he moves into his 30's.


3.) 25 Feb 2022 11:51:50
Did you see the disallowed Leeds goal @MK? Matip charging high up trying to poke Daniel James who fooled him with a nice flick and then he ran at Allison while Matip crawling back to outrace James. Embarrassing.
He is easily one of the most overrated player I have ever seen.
He is Positionally crap and has no pace to play a high line. Period.


4.) 25 Feb 2022 11:53:29
"Virgil played Allison into trouble"? I'm all for constructive criticism but no way no how is that Virgil's "mistake". That's all the keepers own doing.


5.) 25 Feb 2022 12:27:08
Hmmm wonder who knows best. Posters or Klopp who seems to prefer him most games…if he was crap would Klopp do that? Are you saying he is a poor judge of a football player? The mind boggles sometimes….


6.) 25 Feb 2022 12:31:45
Harry always enjoy reading your comments mate even though I very rarely agree with them.

Again on this one I’ll take Klopps judgement on Matip and his choice to continually pick him.


7.) 25 Feb 2022 13:44:45
What rubbish, Transition.


8.) 25 Feb 2022 14:54:09
Yet Matip is part of a defence that has been very good this season and close to water tight over the last month or so.

You don't come of with some crackers Harry. Maybe it was just down to the other 3 defenders?


9.) 25 Feb 2022 14:56:03
Gandalf, rubbish but always consistent. 😉.


10.) 25 Feb 2022 14:56:43
Age is less important tho at CB than maybe other positions in the team. For.


11.) 25 Feb 2022 16:04:54
Irish we did win a CL and Premier league with only 2 out of 3 midfielders with Gini missing 🙄.


12.) 25 Feb 2022 23:19:50
I agree MK Matip is one of the most underrated players in the league even by his own fans sometimes.
I hear people rave about Diaz, Laporte or Rudiger but Matip is never mentioned in the same class when he holds down a place in one of the best defences in Europe. Baffling.
VVD is immense we know that but he doesn’t do it all on his own with a 3 legged donkey next to him.


13.) 25 Feb 2022 23:28:28
I will add to my last comment too. I’m sick of hearing how much we missed VVD last season and it cost us 6 defeats at home etc etc.
In actual fact we were top of the league at the end of December and had just smashed Palace 7-0 without VVD since October and without Gomez from 2 weeks after VVD got injured.
Matip got injured against West Brom and that started our free fall.
Coincidence? I don’t think so.


14.) 26 Feb 2022 00:56:47
Agree 100% Beckers Peckers.


15.) 26 Feb 2022 01:57:39
Matip is Klopp's first choice alongside VVD. I like Matip but I know he has flaws. Klopp continues to give Keita chances but I know he has flaws.
I realise that Klopp knows what he is doing, let him get on with it and get behind the team. Flaws and all.
Klopp is doing his job brilliantly despite our flaws.
The search for perfection is futile and the tenure of Jurgen Norbert Klopp has been wonderful.
Leave him to it and enjoy it while it lasts.


16.) 26 Feb 2022 04:15:04
Matip was our best defender for the first half of the season. Virgil getting his stride again. Horses for courses. Konate doesn't deal well with runners off the shoulder or in behind. Matip gets lost in the 10's. Gereat options to have either way when you include gomez. Best overall defence we have had in a long long time.

Looks like a transfer is happening and for the sum I said on here a few weeks ago. Baffling it takes this long to sort out transfers.

Akira1892

1.) 28 Jan 2022 14:04:26
I thought the club has a problem with home grown numbers? Has that been resolved or will a non homegrown player be leaving?


2.) 28 Jan 2022 14:20:30
Looks like one of Taki or Origi could be leaving if the home-grown quota is tight and has to be satisfied. I don't see Klopp holding on to 9 attacking players (Salah, Mane, Firmino, Jota, Origi, Minamino, Ox, Gordon, Elliott) ans bringing in a 10th with Diaz, anyway.

If you accept the "sell first to buy" strategy, then maybe that's why there's been a delay in the deal? Make sure you have a deal for a sale before you commit to a purchase?


3.) 28 Jan 2022 14:32:44
Akira1892, you realize what you have done, don't you? Raised expectations that you'll cough up the next transfer before it happens! So, what are you waiting for? Cough it up, we have barely 3 days left. 😉.


4.) 28 Jan 2022 14:49:03
Karius has taken a slot for foreign players so I imagine Diaz would take his place.
Almost certain he'll be pulled from squad, sold, or released.


5.) 28 Jan 2022 15:04:46
You did Akira, I remember reading it and thinking 'what a load of horse rubbish' but credit to you mate.
You've set yourself up nicely for the suimmer window - no pressure lad.


6.) 28 Jan 2022 15:24:20
Deal is off lads. Milner won't give up the No.7 shirt and Diaz won't wear any other number at club level.


7.) 28 Jan 2022 15:48:04
OMM, are you trying to start WWIII up in here?

11.) 28 Jan 2022 17:11:31
I have no idea on transfers i just added 1+1 and arrived at a conclusion. No idea if someone is leaving. But one thing is for sure we have looking to sign diaz for a while. This just didn't happen overnight. The complexity if transfer from agreement over fee to actually signing a player is something we can see.

I hope we keep taki. I think keita origi and philips should be the ones leaving.


12.) 28 Jan 2022 18:53:27
Taki can’t make the team even with Salah and Mane away. Now with The new signing coming as well, Taki is about 10th choice. No way he stays for me.

Its salah’s problem. Liverpool have offered him a huge deal. The numbers are staggering. He wouldn’t sign. He could have got more but his agent screwed it up for him. If a meaningful offer does come we would let him go. Problem is unlike mane, no one has any declared any interest in salah at the moment.

This is a good post. Liverpool are actually very open to selling salah, they also have a replacement line up which would surprise many of us.
Only problem his agent can't find him a club. His agent p. ed off someone very high up in the club and then Liverpool had decided to part ways. It was because of klopps insistence we offered him a new contract with 15percent hike and great add ons in bonus clauses. But now that he won't accept a good offer made to him we are very open to sell. Problem again is like last season his agent can't find him a club.

You don't have to worry. He is an excellent signing.
Keeps himself fit, is a likeable person and a very good footballer. The south american contingent at Liverpool will help him settle rather well. At Liverpool he will be given the platform to have the world at his feet.
Now who will score more - haaland or nunez?
