Morning eds,
I don't see the point of a deal for thiago, yes he is better technically than wijnaldum but I don't think he suits the style as well and would cost a lot more in wages as well as transfer fee even if gini was sold to fund it as well as all the other costs associated with buying a player.
My question is if gini stays do you see us still bringing in another player if we can move on the likes of grujic and Wilson as they clearly don't seem to be in the plans? If so what area do you think we would and should target.


{Ed002's Note - To sign Thiago space would need to be made in midfield - but obviously Klopp remains very keen. Transfers will depend on departures so if the likes of Wilso and Grujic can be sold then you may see the club look to attacking cover. Klopp has also been after a first choice CB. Departures would be key to all of this.}

1.) 13 Sep 2020 08:49:55
If we can only raise enough by selling Wilson and grujic for one signing would you expect him to opt for thiago, an attacker or cb? Do you think the attacker would be a striker or a winger more in the style of mane or salah?

{Ed002's Note - He really seems to want Thiago but it is hard to see where he would fit in without someone leaving. Ideally I would think the club would a CB as a priority - giving a chance to keep Brewster.}

2.) 13 Sep 2020 09:32:00
I agree we should keep Brewster Ed, there’s a good player there. When you say we should look at signing a CB would that be as a starting CB or replacement for Lovren? Just that I still think Lovren could be replaced internally by Nat Phillips as a 4th choice. I agree that if room needs to be made to accommodate Thiago, to my mind the answer was made yesterday by Naby’s pretty anonymous appearance. He offered nothing and once again was just a performance where he either lost the ball cheaply or didn’t offer anything to the team. Two years in and he has to be doing better than that as the team is carrying him because he was nothing more than a passenger for the time he was on the pitch.

{Ed002's Note - It is the same thing over and over - Klopp wants a starter and cannot afford one.}

3.) 13 Sep 2020 10:06:15
Tbanks for the insight Eds, Do you think if Grujic were to stay he'd be a good option in MF? I know it's looking unlikely because we still don't have a work permit. I always liked the look of the lad and he did well at Hertha.

{Ed002's Note - I think he would be an excellent choice but unless (a) someone leaves, and (b) Liverpool step away from THiago, there is no space for him.}

4.) 13 Sep 2020 10:06:49
Hi Ed, then I think the answer is right in front of Klopp’s nose, sacrifice Keita to facilitate buying a starter. I’d imagine there’s still teams who rate him, and judging by yesterday I can’t see we’d miss Keita if he were sold to bring some money in.

5.) 13 Sep 2020 10:43:08
Sorry I disagree, Thiago improves and freshens up the first team and is also a better fit for the system we play.
He would bring Much more energy to the midfield, much more creativity (Something we are crying out for) and would be better at keeping possession in the centre of the park.
I like Gini and wouldn’t mind at all if we kept him but Thiago is a much better player, I would have no issue at all selling one or two of Gini, Grujic and Keita to bring in Thiago.

6.) 13 Sep 2020 10:55:20
I would not be surprised to see us Selling Brewster and whoever else we can, and going for a tactical shake up, something along the lines of Bayern's 4-2-4 and back to a bit more heavy metal.
Thiago would be important for that type of set up, whilst Brewster has to prove he is more than a Fowler type forward who is excellent at scoring but less so at melding into such a demanding team/ tactic style.

7.) 13 Sep 2020 10:58:26
I doubt we'd get more than 25m for Naby as things stand, if that. I agree though, he doesn't have long to go until he has to be deemed a flop.
Im sure some german side would take him knowing he has performed well in that league, so perhaps some part-ex currency there.

8.) 13 Sep 2020 11:13:11
Ed 002 do you see keita leaving this summer? Pre C.V. there was a rumour linking him to inter milan i think it was.

{Ed002's Note - No and Inter have no interest in Nobby.}

9.) 13 Sep 2020 11:20:49
Maybe the answer is to sell Keita and Wijnaldum, bring Grujic into the first team fold and make an offer for Thiago that way the midfield is refreshed effectively and making good use of Grujic, if Ed002 rates him highly then that’s good enough for me, as he knows a player when he sees one.

{Ed002's Note - That won't be happening.}

10.) 13 Sep 2020 11:24:19
Just my opinion but we’re in desperate need of a striker who can finish. Yesterday could’ve won by 7 or 8 on chances created but in the end settled for scraping by on a couple of penalties. Midfield and defence was all over the place but I expect that to improve as the season progresses. Got away with one if Brewster is capable at this level then let’s see him on the pitch taking those chances. Firmino is class for creativity and work rate but just misses so many chances.

11.) 13 Sep 2020 11:38:01
Ed do you think Thiago is hinging one Gini leaving or not entirely related?

{Ed002's Note - I have already answered this in the same thread.}

12.) 13 Sep 2020 13:36:24
Thanks Eds! let's hope we get a work permit. I love Hendo in the team but at the moment he can't play a full 60 and I'd love us to win one of the cups as well as challenging for the league. Grujic would be an excellent option to come into the team. Him, Jones and Keita are our younger lads who can be the spine for the future.

{Ed002's Note - He is not that young.}

13.) 13 Sep 2020 14:25:19
Brewster to be sold to Sheff UTD apparently as money needed for Sarr. ITK's from UTD all over it, talks already taken place according to them.

14.) 13 Sep 2020 14:49:24
The thing to take from the Leeds game is Liverpool need to freshen up. They are class but certain players have no pressure on them because the squad isn't there. Thiago is class. But for me a centre bk needs to be Brought in. There seems to be an element of players just being comfortable. Liverpool will win the league again but a couple in to put pressure on certain players will cement it for me.

15.) 13 Sep 2020 14:51:42
Ed002, when referring to his first choice CB are you referring to Diego Carlos or someone else. If someone else could you name who? Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Carlos.}

16.) 13 Sep 2020 23:12:31
Vigil being the main culprit Studoc.

17.) 14 Sep 2020 11:12:30
I cannot believe the negativity towards Naby - he had a quiet game but not a stinker, this guy will turn it up this season. Liverpool are a different team mentally they now know how to win 20 games and we will get about 10 stella performances which is 90 points. The past 2 seasons the likes of Chelsea, Man Utd and Arsenal where just poor and teams like Everton and Newcastle look considerable stronger - it will be a tough season this year and there will be less teams rolling over this season to the likes of City, our win at all cost mentality should get us over the line.

18.) 14 Sep 2020 11:20:08
Hard to see where he fits in? He'll be one of the first names down when it comes to picking the first team, Stick to talking about Everton because you seem to be clueless about how football actually works.

19.) 14 Sep 2020 17:25:51
Naby has been really poor, I think that’s why there is negativity. Flashes of brilliance in offence yeah but every other aspect of his game is massively lacking, we always seem to struggle in midfield when he’s playing. he’s not the player we thought we were getting, I dunno what the issue is, it might be a complete lack of effort, that he’s just not very good or he just doesn’t fit inTo the team or premier league but yeah sadly I think he’s a flop.



25 Jun 2018 19:37:45
Evening eds,
Seems clear that if we really wanted to and were willing to pay the price the fekir deal is still on. However my question is do you see many straight alternative options if not? Seen a lot of wingers mentioned and a few attacking midfielders but very few that would match him in terms of versatility of being able to play in a midfield three like coutinho as well as across the front line.


1.) 25 Jun 2018 21:59:10
I still think we will get this one over the line, Klopp usually gets his man eventually.

2.) 25 Jun 2018 22:05:18
Could Thiago Alcantara be an option?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

3.) 25 Jun 2018 22:53:18
Much prefer real leather to alcantara 😉.

4.) 25 Jun 2018 22:54:07
If the situation is that the Lyon owner is now asking for ten million more on top of what we were originally quote there is no way we going to pay it, we didn't want too pay original fee up front due to worries over the knee so we ain't going to pay extra too get him and look like mugs . Such a shame all this cos he excatly what we need not many others out there has his skill set and character.

5.) 25 Jun 2018 23:44:50
He's going to Man United.

6.) 26 Jun 2018 01:11:42
Well if Fekir is the only player who can improve us theb we should pay. Better having for Fekir Alisson than Butland and Shaqiri.

7.) 26 Jun 2018 07:55:43
The medical experts will know Klopp really wants Fekir, but it looks as if there is a real risk of him having long periods sidelined by injury, especially in a faster and more physical league.
They can only make an informed guess about the risk of future problems, and its possible if managed carefully he could play every game for the next 7 years.
But to commit over £50m from the transfer budget, plus big wages for the next five years, could end up being a huge waste of money. And worse, it might leave the club without the money to bring in another top quality attacker- although there are presumably some very expensive insurance arrangements that could be made to reduce the financial risk?
If we had City's resources we might not have to hesitate. But we could end up in another sturridge situation, with a gifted player on high wages who is only available for half of each season.
If Lyon would accept a deal that guaranteed them the full £50m on condition that his injuries remain no worse than the average player, maybe a deal can be done? Personally it all seems pretty doubtful, from both sides.

8.) 26 Jun 2018 08:02:26
Like there are no other players on the planet that could improve us?
That's a tad myopic!

9.) 26 Jun 2018 10:04:12
Comments from a couple of well known journalists with good links to us indicate that Lyon and Fekir are more than willing to pursue a deal but that LFC have shown no inclination of resurrecting the deal at all. There is no clear indication of what has actually occurred to scupper the deal but what is clear is that we are the ones that pulled out much to the annoyance of Lyon and Fekir.

10.) 26 Jun 2018 11:26:57
My two cents as a Liverpool fan who watches many games of la Ligue 1. I believe that Fekir is over rated. Watched almost every Lyon game and I do not think that Fekir’s game is NOT suited to the fast paced Liverpool style of play. He has good control but he needs many touches of the ball to go past his market.
I for one would be glad if we end up not signing him. That said, if he signs he will get my full support.

11.) 26 Jun 2018 12:38:57
I still think we should bid for Draxler. I think he'd fit our style perfectly.

12.) 26 Jun 2018 13:05:42
I like draxler but I worry about his mentality he seems a bit hot an cold for me in terms of consistency.

13.) 26 Jun 2018 16:17:18
Draxler? Really? He is injury prone and is a 5/ 10 player most games because he cba most of the time. A very over rated player who looks poor playing for the best team in a mediocre league.

14.) 26 Jun 2018 23:45:35
PowerLFC you used a double negative lol so he is suited to our style? ;)

15.) 27 Jun 2018 11:15:59
Why are we still talking Fekir when no new information has come out? Of course he’s a good player, of course we would want his quality to improve the depth of our squad but really, Fabinho and Keita could make us an even better team at both ends of the pitch. Stop procrastinating about Fekir for now and think how good our squad already is with the present signings. Onwards 18/ 19 season.

16.) 27 Jun 2018 13:15:26
Bored with the whole Fakir thing. He is not the only player in the world.

Son suits our style of play far more. Fast, intelligent, aggressive, and doesn't take too many touches.

I'd bite their hand off if Spurs made him available.



29 Nov 2013 10:17:26
Hi eds
Have seen on here and in papers last few days that Liverpool are interested in Montoya, when iv seen him he seems a great talent, just kind of full back we need.
However in the paper it says it is to solve our left back problem, however every time I see him he has been right back and is certainly right footed.
So was just wondering if you knew if he has played left back much or if we are buying him to either play him out of position or swap Johnson over
Cheers {Ed001's Note - as far as I am aware he is a right back, though he can cover left back, he is certainly not one. I would think it more because Johnson can't be trusted to stay fit for long periods that we are interested. It would not be the first time Liverpool have looked to replace him long term.}


1.) Cheers for the reply eds
What other options have they considered as long term replacements?
Newspapers probably just putting two and two together as he is a full back and we need a left back
Thanks again {Ed002's Note - Ed001 is correct in that Montoya, whilst being versatile, is primarily a right back. In terms of a left back, Liverpool has enquired after Ryan Bertrand via his agent.}

2.) 29 Nov 2013 12:39:24
I seem to recall Bertrand turning down offers in the summer, insisting he wanted to establish himself at Chelsea. Do you think he has finally accepted Chelsea do not want him Ed, or will he simply reject us again?

YNWAdam {Ed002's Note - Chelsea has not said that they don't want him. It is simply a case of a couple of clubs enquiring after a player with his agent. This happens all of the time.}

3.) I would have thought hat with Ashley Coles age and a new manager Bertrand probably thought it was worth staying but recently they have dropped cole and have been playing right backs instead so I severely doubt he would still want to stay or be confident of a future there as he clearly isn't even first choice back up it would seem



07 Aug 2013 11:10:58
Hi eds
Following the comments by br today about players he is looking to add and also the lack of stories surrounding centre backs, do you think it possible we could let skrtel leave without finding a replacement?
I know many people believe two players for each position gives the best competition and balance to a squad but at the moment without skrtel we have:
Johnson and Kelly
Toure and wisdom
Agger and Coates
Enrique and the new lb which looks like cissokho
Along with jones, sama, McLaughlin and Flanagan in the youth and reserves.
So do your think that if one of Coates and skrtel leaves then we may make do with what we have? Think br will have been really impressed with wisdom at cb so far in pre season and toure both looked really good
Alex YNWA {Ed001's Note - we have been trying to buy a centre half all summer, so no, I doubt we would let Skrtel leave without replacement.}


1.) Right ok thanks for the reply ed, do you think maybe someone could honour on loan if Coates isn't sold then? Otherwise can't see wisdom and him getting much game time if there are three ahead of the two of them and cover left and right {Ed001's Note - I don't expect a loan defender to sign, if that is what you are asking. Sorry if I am misreading that, auto correct (I assume) has made it difficult to decipher!}

See loads of people complaining about not getting Werner because jota is going to cost similar.
First of all I think jota although maybe not as high profile, not as consistent yet suits our play much more. Werner would have had to be a sub who gave us a plan b as he plays number 9 completely different to Bobby as rather than creating space for the wingers he would occupy their space.
Secondly Werner was agreed months ago when we had agreed no sales. From the sudden activity and rumours I am assuming the club are no confident of offloading one or two to fund these purchases.
Thirdly I'm not convinced Werner would have wanted to move to challenge for a starting spot or sit on the bench I think he would have wanted guaranteed starting place.
Finally the cost is not the same as it is rumoured we are paying a lot less up front for jota than they wanted upfront for Werner as well as his wages which would have been much higher than jotas.

If we come out of a window when we have just won the league and bought a left back who looks good back up, a world class midfielder and a dangerous winger with premier league experience I would be delighted. We lacked back up for robbo and Trent, we lacked a little creativity sometimes in midfield and didn't have much quality of the front 3 were injured. With Minamino settling, Jones and Williams breaking through and signing Thiago, jota and Tsimikas to me we have sorted all those issues and look strong for the season ahead.


1.) 19 Sep 2020 06:20:46
I would be more than happy with Jota - excellent player and proven in the Premier League.

2.) 19 Sep 2020 06:27:19
Just one thing left for me Alex, a new CB.

3.) 19 Sep 2020 06:35:00
In an ideal world but don’t see the point getting an ok cb.
If they aren’t going to push pressure on Gomez, vvd then I would leave it and if any injury problems use the young players or Fabinho since we have lots of midfielders. I don’t think we can afford someone better than Gomez or Matip when at his best so I can’t see the point in signing anyone else.



12 Sep 2020 21:34:47
Seen a few posts about gomez needing to be dropped and matip put in after today.
I think people are being far too harsh, it's the first game back with no real fitness or pre season and he was still stronger than van dijk and trent and half the issues he had were because he was running round covering the huge gaps they were leaving.


1.) 12 Sep 2020 21:43:53
We've been saying for weeks what a tough little game today was going to be, and we get our panties in a twist when they give us a game. They were good.

I thought gomez looked pretty good at times. His pace is a real asset.

{Ed025's Note - really?????, i thought he was awful robbie, he loked like wolverine on tramadol to me mate..

2.) 12 Sep 2020 22:04:37
Let's see:

1st goal: Trent gets done on our right flank.
2nd goal: Overconfidence from van Dijk, he should've just cleared it.
3rd goal: Midfielders fail to track Klich. something which was happening all game to the point where I think they were intentionally leaving him to the back 4.

Liverpool fans: All Gomez' fault!

Gomez was no worse defensively than any other member of the back 4 in the first half and was the best of the bunch in the 2nd. I think some people have just developed a fixation with him because of his poor performances on re-start.

3.) 12 Sep 2020 22:08:39
What Gomez offers us though is the ability to play a high line designed to stop attacks as his recovery pace let's us take a position higher and use the offside trap to success. Leeds had a couple of counters where they broke our midfield and tried the killer ball but we caught them offside 6 or 7 times to stop any threat. Matip isn't as effective in that type of defence. Errors by Trent and VVD for their goals meant that Gomez had to move out of his position to cover which he shouldn't be criticised for. He was far from perfect today but when both the players on either side of you are having a bad day it's not possible that you can then have a great game.

4.) 12 Sep 2020 22:24:15
Summed it up perfectly, Something-Red. There is always someone that has to take the blame so let's blame Gomez whereas he was IMO, actually better than VVD who performed poorly.

5.) 12 Sep 2020 22:24:59
exactly Har, on that third goal he was expected to mark 3 attackers?

6.) 13 Sep 2020 02:25:41
We played a high line and they punished us for it. So whilst Gomez allows us to play a high line, it means one long ball could cause us real issues and it did. Leeds had done their work home and scored 3 against us, just imagine what it’s going be like when we play City or Chelsea!

7.) 13 Sep 2020 03:22:50
Yeah and in fact after VVD had to go out of position and Leeds players freely powering into the box he actually reacted quickly to get into central area to cover as best option possible which was a hopeless situation anyway yet he's taking stick for our issues just because he's seen as the weaker of the 4. It's like when Firmino isn't banging in goals everybody calls for origi to get picked even though he's never the better option over firmino even when he's not at his best. Gomez is far better than matip and fans would scream for Gomez to come back after a few games no doubt. There's always a scapegoat that unfairly gets overblamed at Liverpool. Henderson took it for years, so too did lovren and lallana when the likes of emre can or Daniel sturridge never faced criticism despite having much less care and effort in those years. Last season AOC had more poor performances than keita had and I can't think of any games where he was MOTM whereas even keita offered up a few of those performances. But it's always going to be keita to blame and never fair treatment to AOC who's a very likeable character but on the field he's not giving more consistency than keita. Look at how all I've seen is Gomez, keita and firmino being moaned about when VVD, Henderson and mane were arguably worse in defence midfield and attack.

{Ed0666's Note - Google PARAGRAPHS Har please mate.

8.) 13 Sep 2020 07:21:47
Maybe he doesn't understand them.



07 Apr 2020 15:59:14
Hi eds
Seen a lot written about salah over the last season or two and him looking for other clubs.
I understand the pull of real Madrid and Barcelona as no matter what a club wins or achieves those clubs still have a huge reputation globally and many dream of playing for them.
I was surprised though by PSG and Juventus links and it got me thinking about what the reason is he wants a move away. Do you have any info on what the reason is?
I wouldn't have thought financially he would do that much better at Juventus, or even PSG unless they offloaded mbappe or neymar. In terms of trophies and the size of the club I would say it is a backward or sideway step.
Cheers for any info eds.


{Ed002's Note - PSG and Juventus were the other two clubs he was offered to. PSG and Juventus would both pay considerably more than Liverpool both have Champions League each season and are challenging and winning their leagues. Juventus were also in need of a poster boy before Ronaldo filled that role on a temporary basis. In the same way PSG had Neymar. Salah is all about image hence the professional photographers taking his holiday snaps etc.. Liverpool have not been winning trophies before the past 9 months.}

1.) 07 Apr 2020 17:49:23
So do you see him changing approach if Liverpool continue to challenge and win trophies and titles or do you see him still wanting a change.

{Ed002's Note - I would think he will probably stay this summer.}

2.) 08 Apr 2020 00:56:33
The most important news is the noise coming from Virgil Van Dijk. I want to become a Liverpool legend. For someone who is 10x better than any other defender in the world, this is massive!

3.) 08 Apr 2020 12:36:07
LiverpoolFC8, VVD is not 10 times better than any other defender or CB in the world. he is not 10 times better than Laporte, Khoulibaly or even Joe Gomez and that is just off the top of my head. I could keep going. VVD is great but let's not get lost in frivolous hyperbole.



26 Aug 2018 09:43:33
Mornings eds,
Seen a few comments about fabinho not settling as well as hoped straight away.
Is this meaning into the team as in tactical play etc or are there ant personal issues as well?
Was disappointed not to see him make the bench again but I suppose we saw robbo introduced similar last year. If just tactical hopefully won't be too long as apparently has a great attitude and works hard on his game.


{Ed001's Note - it takes time, he has to settle into a new culture and style of play. Both are difficult.}

1.) 26 Aug 2018 10:19:27
It seemed his wife was more keen on the move than he was in the interviews and footage of his arrival. At least she'll be wholly supportive of him being here.

2.) 26 Aug 2018 13:10:14
Give him time, he’ll be a good player once he settles. Look how well Robbo and Ox player after they settled in.

3.) 26 Aug 2018 15:06:57
Happy wife = happy life.



24 Oct 2017 19:31:02
Hi eds
Seen a lot written about Moreno and the left back situation this season. Just wondering if any of the eds had any idea why Robertson is finding it so hard to get a look in? I know he came late and wasn't fully fit but by now at the very least you would expect to see him given some chances rotating with Moreno.
I know moreno looks better and he should be applauded for the work he has put in and the improvement but he still makes a lot of mistakes and in my opinion is in no way making the position his own.


1.) 24 Oct 2017 19:53:54
Love posts like this lol. The glaring failures in the team notably the keeper and the other defenders yet people still post and try to roast our
A. Most improved defender
B. This seasons most reliable
C. Hasn't been at fault
D. But yeah I get let's blame him for everyone else's failings and short comings.

2.) 24 Oct 2017 20:58:55
Bit harsh there p1. I love Moreno as a person, and there is no doubt he has improved a lot this season, and the OP hasn't been particularly harsh on him - he has just asked a very reasonable question - 'where the hell is Robertson? '. Am asking the same question myself. I would have thought he would be in a few squads or on the bench for a match or 2, but he appears to have vanished. The modern version of Lord Lucan.

3.) 24 Oct 2017 21:15:47
weird buy.

4.) 24 Oct 2017 23:29:19
I think we have to start asking was he a KLOPP signing. all these defensive issues have to be laid at KLOPP’S door, from alternating keepers to giving LOVREN a new contact, the MORENO conundrum, all show indecision from KLOPP. in the next few months we will find whether KLOPP sinks or swims. he struggled with this at DORTMUND.

5.) 25 Oct 2017 00:59:57
P1, at what point did I roast Moreno?
Is he the best player at the club? All I said was that he hasn't made the position his own and isn't undropable which I stand by. In case you hadn't noticed he is a member of the shocking defence. My main point rather than Moreno's performance was why buy a player and not even give him a fair chance, no even making the match day squad 90% of the timr.

6.) 25 Oct 2017 02:12:48
wembley78 - what's with all the capitals mate.

7.) 25 Oct 2017 05:17:52
Other then change for changes sake, I can't see how moreno can be dropped.

8.) 25 Oct 2017 08:56:53
Undoubtedly Moreno has improved and I hope he continues to do so I really do. When he scored that goal against spurs a couple of years ago I thought we were going to have one hell of a left back in our team. Sadly, for whatever reason, he didn’t develop from there. So I applaud him for the effort he has obviously made (something ed 1 has referenced over the course of last season even when he wasn’t getting game time) . That said, just because he has improved it does not necessarily mean he is good enough. Robertson has had, ?2 games is it. It’s a very fair question to ask where he is as he doesn’t even make any match day squads. His delivery from outside has been pretty impressive, he is surely deserving of some game time is he not?

There was an article with Roberston in it and it made sense the LB position is a specialized position so why would you have two LBS in the match day squad? it doesn't make sense when you could have others on the bench who can play that position/ and others I. E Milner can drop in if theirs an injury TAA can come across.

I’m sorry but Moreno still keeps leaving big spaces behind him as he pushed forward. This means he’s constantly getting caught out of position and allowing the opposition to put more pressure in the central defenders who are having to cover. Gary Neville called it right during the game. Now I love seeing Moreno surge forward but not if it means we keep shipping goals. Why isn’t the Scottish lad getting games, we looked better balanced with him playing?

{Ed001's Note - and Robertson does the same thing because that is how teams instruct their full backs to play, as Neville knows full well. The problem is that they should either be instructed not to get forward as much or we should have a midfielder covering the gap left (or dropping between the centre halves to allow one of the centre backs to cover out wide). We do neither and that would not change because Robertson is there.}

Point taken Ed. Cheers.

Alex, you kind of contradicted yourself dude. Asking why Robertson isn't getting a look in. It IS because moreno has made it his own. He is far from perfect and I still get high blood pressure when our left flank is targeted but he has been okay. No, he's been good. Going forward he is very exciting and he hasn't made many big mistakes. He is a tough little sod too. Little 'Ard nut.

Personally I think Robertson was a good bit of business. A fair bit of player for very little cash. I think, and I could be way off, that he is still adapting to our style, when he has played he likes to get a cross in, which is great, but we don't have much height up front or power. He needs to get out of the habit and play more intelligent pass's. I think the lad has got it in him.

Klopp told moreno that he was going to buy a lb in the summer and moreno asked him "what do I have to do to get in the team? " Whatever klopp said it seems to be working. I think if moreno starts to feel the love of the fans he will go up a gear. I'd love to hear a positive song about moreno, I think he deserves it and I think we will see a different player.

If we can only raise enough by selling Wilson and grujic for one signing would you expect him to opt for thiago, an attacker or cb? Do you think the attacker would be a striker or a winger more in the style of mane or salah?


{Ed002's Note - He really seems to want Thiago but it is hard to see where he would fit in without someone leaving. Ideally I would think the club would a CB as a priority - giving a chance to keep Brewster.}

Wouldn't go over ten for salah, ain't going to be splashing 30+ on draxler. Would love it but no chance

Sorry misread post, same point stands about Montoya though he would almost certainly establish himself at right back, personally can't see tello getting past countinho, Suarez, sturridge, salah (if signed) and would still have to compete with aspas sterling ibe and suso after that

They wouldn't really be competing for first team place, from what I have seen of him he is miles ahead of Johnson in his performance so would be my starting right back without a shadow of a doubt and would expect Johnson to move on in the summer if Montoya came in. And in terms of Bertrand yes he would be moving to compete but clearly cole is a level about Enrique and therefore would play more games and stand more chance at Liverpool, plus at Liverpool he would be guaranteed second choice but Chelsea he is also behind azpilcueta switching to the left

Cheers eds, do you see Montoya as a likely option? Iv seen it written by the eds on here that they think it likely he will stay in Spain, personally would love us to sign him think he looks quality


{Ed002's Note - You answered your own question.}

In an ideal world but don’t see the point getting an ok cb.
If they aren’t going to push pressure on Gomez, vvd then I would leave it and if any injury problems use the young players or Fabinho since we have lots of midfielders. I don’t think we can afford someone better than Gomez or Matip when at his best so I can’t see the point in signing anyone else.

So do you see him changing approach if Liverpool continue to challenge and win trophies and titles or do you see him still wanting a change.


{Ed002's Note - I would think he will probably stay this summer.}

P1, at what point did I roast Moreno?
Is he the best player at the club? All I said was that he hasn't made the position his own and isn't undropable which I stand by. In case you hadn't noticed he is a member of the shocking defence. My main point rather than Moreno's performance was why buy a player and not even give him a fair chance, no even making the match day squad 90% of the timr.

Cheers ed just thought maybe an option since that where he started last year and don't seem to be having much luck with left backs.

Yeah that's what I had heard, I am hoping for a steady long term future at the club with one manager building something, but i know it has been mentioned that klopp may look to manage Germany or Munich in the future so if he was to leave more short term option possibly we could keep hold of lijnders to maybe take over if they feel he is ready.
