Do we hold any interest in leon Goretzka, this guy looks a ready made player for klopps system.


{Ed002's Note - No, there has been no approach made by Liverpool - although there is plenty of interest from elsewhere. Barcelona and Juventus are more likely destinations than England.}

1.) 08 Nov 2017 10:38:43
With Emre likely to be joining Juventus and Coutinho to Barcelona you would think Goretzka would be a high priority option to replace one of them. But hey, logic is not our best suit when it comes to the transfer market.

2.) 08 Nov 2017 11:32:13
Goretzka is a good player but I'm not sure he is what we need. He is similar to Emre Can who is being allowed to leave by Klopp for not fitting what we need.

I think Klopp will look to someone more technically gifted in my opinion. Someone in the mould of Lemar, Brandt or Meyer. Coutinho is currently used as both a wide forward and an atracking midfielder occassionally. So we need to sign a replacement who can also play both positions. Meyer is looking like the favourite based on Ed002's comments thus far. It wouldn't disappoint me at all if we went back to Rafa Silva though. History of interest from us, and he would be ideal on either wing or in an attacking midfield role with his excellent dribbling and vision.

3.) 08 Nov 2017 20:59:06
He's off to Barcelona.



24 Aug 2017 13:54:19
People are reporting draxlers agent has been in talks with liverpool should coutinho go through.


1.) 24 Aug 2017 14:11:16
Hello eds I seen .....

{Ed002's Note - This is the Liverpool page - please don't ask about random players and why the club has no interest in them.}

2.) 24 Aug 2017 14:23:05
Rumour that Draxler's agent was at the game last night. although he is Firmino's agent aswell.

3.) 24 Aug 2017 14:40:07
I don't know if draxler would be my choice as a replacement however as an addition to what we already have id welcome the signing.

4.) 24 Aug 2017 15:02:28
Why would his agent be there? We don't have any interest in Draxler as eds has explained.

5.) 24 Aug 2017 15:26:28
Can I sue Lfc for blindness? when Bobby big teeth scored that fourth, the stadium lights reflecting on those white tombstones frazzled me eyes. Off work now looking like Dave blunkett.

6.) 24 Aug 2017 16:01:02
Think Draxlers agent is hawking him round a few clubs.
Apparently he was at Bayern the other night too.

7.) 24 Aug 2017 18:55:44
Spot on, Liver. Agents and clubs hawk their players all over so there not much new there. Ed's have said that we are not interested in Draxler nor were we ever interested when his name propped up in Jan. Nothing more to see here.

8.) 24 Aug 2017 22:18:10
Roller, I would sooner have nice big white teeth instead of them looking like a tarmaccers rake!

9.) 25 Aug 2017 04:47:40
Roller are you getting a golden labrador or Alsatian.



21 Aug 2017 11:48:13
Are we looking to sign per schuurs the young dutch defender?


1.) 21 Aug 2017 16:03:37
He impressed on trial so i believe that we are, not sure how much progress has been made as there is a lot of interest from a number of clubs across Europe.



16 Aug 2017 12:15:36
Eds any interest in ivan perisic? The united link seems to have cooled.


{Ed001's Note - no, why would there be?}

1.) 16 Aug 2017 14:33:00
In my opinion we got a better player in Salah.



30 Jul 2017 10:07:15
Reports are saying we are ready to move in for Barcelona player rafinha, would they sell to us if we are not willing to sell coutinho?


{Ed002's Note - He was offered around previously and Barcelona would certainly be open to including him in a deal for Coutinho as he is very much a fringe player in order to reduce the cash commitment. If enough were offered by Liverpool they may be happy with a straight sale.}

1.) 30 Jul 2017 10:32:08
Might we be interested in him then at this time, seperate to Coutinho?

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona would likely be interested in discussing him in the framework of the Coutinho discussions initially but to the best of my knowledge there has been no talk of him thus far. For the next few days Barcelona has to deal with the Neymar situation.}

2.) 30 Jul 2017 10:51:22
I know this is the Liverpool page, but I feel it impacts coutinho, what is the situation with Neymar?

{Ed002's Note - PSG would like to buy him.}

3.) 30 Jul 2017 10:56:20
Ed although he is a fringe player at Barcelona do you know if he is generally highly thought of in terms if ability at Barcelona and around Europe? I guess Sanchez was surplus to requirements at Barcelona and he turned out ok didn't he.

{Ed002's Note - He has been there about 10 years so they see something in him. I am not sure if he has played for Brazil yet.}

4.) 30 Jul 2017 11:50:11
such an average player, I'd be amazed if this isn't bs.

5.) 30 Jul 2017 12:36:44
Great family heritage but I'd rather break bank for his brother Thiago.

Reckon it's bull. How often do these player swaps materialise as lots of personal things to sort out.

We were supposed to get Sanchez in Suarez one etc. I remember Nunez for Owen too clearly so steer away

Also, I believe Sanchez was forced out of Barcelona by Messi power. He was a great player, and was my worlds best at the time he was at Udinese, so different scenario for me that one.

6.) 30 Jul 2017 12:48:31
He's had caps for Brazil but only 2,doesn't mean anything really as most countries hand out caps for fun. The worry for me is that he's never played regular at Barcelona and he's 24 and the few times I have seen him (not enough to make a good judgement) he's not stood out, not a patch on his brother.

7.) 30 Jul 2017 13:12:22
Bear in mind though that some players flourish when they get a chance to play more regularly or in their best position. Few of us had heard much of Coutinho or Firmini before they came to Liverpool. Also it's not too much disgrace to not be a regular at Barcelona. As long as he's got ability and a decent attitude why not give him a chance.

8.) 30 Jul 2017 15:34:14
Actually, Coutinho was well known across Europe as a young talent (Rafa tried to sign him for us as a teenager), as for Firmino, anyone familiar with the Bundesliga knew about him as he'd been scoring regularly for Hoffenheim for a few years.

9.) 30 Jul 2017 15:37:26
Because you don't replace your best player with someone "to just give them a shot" haha!

That's not how you improve mate!

10.) 30 Jul 2017 15:57:37
Playing for Brazil doesn't mean anything anymore. Fred was a regular starting player and he stunk to high hell, and anyway, I think Ed001 said that the Brazilian national sides are picked by sponsors.

{Ed001's Note - Nike had a contract that was revealed recently, that allowed them to pick the squad for friendlies.}

11.) 30 Jul 2017 16:31:10
What is this 'Messi power'?

Is it that others players egos cannot except that they are good enough, or that Messi calls up the 'footballer of Barcelona ego club' union together, in which he chairs an important meeting in how to force out anyone who comes close to taking over the reign as Barcas best?

12.) 30 Jul 2017 16:37:10
Yes but just because they were involved in a deal doesn't mean they would be a straight replacement for Coutinho. The point I'm making is the profile of Coutinho and Firmino has greatly increased since joining Liverpool. Why do we get such dumb answers sometimes.

13.) 30 Jul 2017 16:34:12
Ed mate, not trying to pin you down, I respect your opinion. If you were a betting man would you sat coutinio is going to leave this year?

{Ed001's Note - I am not a betting man.}

14.) 30 Jul 2017 16:50:33
Agree Razor. I quite like Vázquez at Real. Watched him a few times. He's now where near coutinho level but who really is. I thought when we signed firmino it was preparing for life without coutinho.

Just got to do our best to keep him as long as we can. Be nice to get someone in early that can try and be ready to take over when he leaves.

15.) 30 Jul 2017 17:15:33
Good answer eds. I just need daily reassurance is all mate. Personally think rahifina would be a great signing. Not as bit part deal but straight buy.

16.) 30 Jul 2017 19:31:30
Tbf you'd have to be some player to force your way into the bar a midfield at any point over the last 10 years.

17.) 30 Jul 2017 20:46:32
Rafinha and Vazquez are the new Antonio Nunez. Don't try and pretend they're even capable of replacing Coutinho. To sell a top class player like him and replace him with either of them would be a disastrous move.

Jamaal lascelles needs buying. He just needs to empty out his pockets before he leaves, don't wanna be bringing lukaku over with him.


1.) 12 Feb 2018 11:17:16
I agree mate. Fantastic player who could play at a much higher level than a relegation dog fight. With him in the side, Newcastle are solid and even Shelvey and Diame can be fired into performing well ahead of him. Without him though, the whole team looks nervous and two many players start to coast knowing full well there is nobody to chew them out.

I'd actually have him in my top 10 centre backs in the Premier League. He walks into any team in the top 6 except Spurs, for me. He's better than Otamendi, better than Smalling, better than Matip, better than Koscielny, and better than Rudiger. Alderweireld is world class though so no shame in being a worse centre back than him.

Problem Lascelles has is that he is not glamourous. He makes defending look effortless like Ben Mee does, and for that reason, people seem to think he just doesn't get challenged enough. The media in particular are incapable of understanding that a centre back who makes everything look easy is usually doing things right positionally and reading the game well. They love a last ditch slide tackle from a recovering player caught out of position, sadly. So that gets highlighted as good defending.

2.) 12 Feb 2018 11:29:23
This season he has made 24 appearances. Newcastle have conceded 25 goals in those 24 games, only letting in 3 goals twice; once against Man City and once against Chelsea. Average of about 1 goal a game conceded.

In the 6 games he has missed, Newcastle have conceded 18 goals at an average of 3 a game. They even let in 3 against Nottingham Forest in the cup, without him in the side.

The way he brings out the best in those around him is astonishing. I'd sign him in a heartbeat. He's also a brilliant bloke off the pitch. Have a read up about what he did for an ex-marine amputee, recently. Compassion to off the pitch to match his passion on it.

3.) 12 Feb 2018 12:47:26
I have been advocating Lascelles since the start of the season. Hardcore defender who puts his body on the line and also has a decent range of passing. Perfect partner for VVD imo.

4.) 12 Feb 2018 13:06:21
Not fr me, MK. I am skeptical of defenders or CB's who play in a defensive formation to begin with. See Michael Keane from his Burnley days. Lascalles plays in one at Newcastle. Also, Rafa is very defensive-minded so that is the way he sets his team out to play even when they need a win. Klopp does not play that way and we have seen what signing players from defensive formations can do here. See Dejan Lovren at Saints.

We need defenders or CB's who can play in an open system where you will be required to defend on one on one bases, out wide and in space. The only CB's that can do that are ironically, at Spurs in Vertonghen and Alderweireld. Why? They are ex FB's who had to defend in space. Pls, spare me the Mee's and Lascalles. They don't fit the way we play cos there will be less protection for them in our system. Just my opinion.

5.) 12 Feb 2018 13:55:57
It is a fair argument BRover but it is also entirely based on guesswork. You don't know if they could play in a more expansive system because they've never been given the chance to show if they can.

Keane is a poor example anyway, because he only ever looked good because of Mee being a great leader and Dyche being a great coach. He is a centre back who looks awful in a Sam Allardyce team which says it all!

More to the point, Newcastle played a very open game against Man United yesterday and Lascelles still had Lukaku in his pocket. You are judging him based solely on his Premier League games. Last season in the Championship Newcastle were far more open as a team and he still coped just fine. You can argue the quality of opposition was weaker, but that argument only goes as far as the one that his quality of team mates was also weaker than it would be for us.

Lascelles has pace and enough ability on the ball to cope at a higher level for me. Just my opinion though and i appreciate yours is different.

Our problem isn't that Lovren came from a defensive system. Our problem is that we are too often buying the wrong player. Lovren looked good because of Fonte. Sakho looked good because of Silva. Matip looked good because of Howedes.

We are not signing the leader. We are signing the headless chickens alongside them. Everton did the same when they signed Keane instead of Mee.

6.) 12 Feb 2018 14:21:43
Valid argument MK. I can agree with that. How about we marry your last point of view with mine. Now, that would be a good scenario, right?

7.) 12 Feb 2018 14:44:36
we might all be surprised how well Gomez fits in along side VVD, with the right coaching and game time, he could well be the right man, and we already have him .

8.) 12 Feb 2018 15:37:25
Agreed Happy, but let's not forget that he is still only 20 and a couple of seasons at right back to ease him into the highest level of the game won't hurt anyone. He will still get plenty of game time. He needs to learn to judge the flight of a ball before we put him at centre back though. That is a crucial part to a centre backs game as they are frequently called into question aerially, often against huge target men. He's got another 15-18 years ahead of him to learn how to play at centre back. There is no rush in my opinion.

As this season has gone on, Gomez has shown more and more that he is a supreme talent. However he has also shown why he isn't ready to be thrown to the wolves at centre back. The thought of him facing Lukaku, Kane, Carroll or Morata on a cross into the box gives me nightmares. At least at right back, he will be challenging for the ball more consistently with generally smaller left forwards such as Sanchez, Sane and Hazard!

9.) 12 Feb 2018 15:43:45
I'm not sold on him either, letting in over a goal a game is not a record that should be bragged about. Nowhere near lovren or matip.

10.) 12 Feb 2018 16:26:05
Spot on, MK regarding Gomez. Also, Gomez at RB allows us to go 3 at the back as he becomes a CB hence, we have 3 at the back when we attack and more protected when we are countered on. Gomez is NOT ready for the CB role yet and NEEDS to cut out his mistakes at RB cos at CB, those mistakes will be punished, ASAP.

11.) 12 Feb 2018 16:41:53
I wish we let in a goal a game 😂 We've conceded 31 in 27 games. Maybe if we had let in 3 or 4 less goals, a couple of our draws would be wins and we'd be ahead of Man United. There are fine margins in football. What is not fine is that Newcastle concede on average 2 more goals a game without Lascelles. Or that they have 6 clean sheets in 24 games with him, and have only conceded a single goal in 13 more of those games. They haven't even won a single game without him in the side. He has scored 3 goals this season. 2 winners and won to earn his side a draw. So he is worth 7 of their 28 points with his goals alone!

Just watch him a few times mate and you'll see how vital he is to Newcastle. Without him they totally capitulate as soon as they concede one goal. He is the only character in their whole squad and he has a winning mentality. I'd drive to Newcastle and bring him to Liverpool myself.

12.) 13 Feb 2018 12:03:50
If you rate him that much mk I will have to watch him more. I know he has a good reputation. 1 goal a game may not be great, but for a newly promoted team with the lack of talent they have, it is pretty good. I will pay more attention to him.



17 Jan 2018 19:57:36
Bobby Firmino! How long does he have left on his contract eds? And do you have info on this lifetime contract i've heard about? Thanks in advance, good work .

13 Nov 2017 18:49:21
Do you think can will continue to get game time, or will we start using players that have a future here.


1.) 13 Nov 2017 19:43:01
Excellent question mate. You have to field your strongest side everytime but if you know that one of your main player's is off in as soon as he can then what do you do? Me personally I'd play him until his form dip's.

2.) 13 Nov 2017 22:13:01
Problem here is, should he keep getting played and the other lads know he wants out, they might have issues with that, I know I would if I was a loyal player then you've got Can wanting out yet starting every game, it'd make me ask questions I must admit but I do agree with Barry, keep playing him until he gives us an excuse to drop him.

3.) 13 Nov 2017 23:19:01
With Lallana back Can wouldn't get much game time anyway, it's a moot point.

4.) 14 Nov 2017 09:09:34
If can starts the match it's coz klopp thinks he's the best fit for the team. For me if we are winning 3 nil and 20 mins to go he should be first considered for being subbed to allow the younger guys get some game time.

5.) 14 Nov 2017 11:17:34
Excellent idea mate.

6.) 14 Nov 2017 11:47:08
I don't see why we should cut off our nose to spite our face.

If Can is the best available option (and he will be at times), he is contracted to the club for the next 7 months and should play. I wouldn't start phasing him out the match day squad until we have no chance of winning something or CL qualification is assured.

7.) 14 Nov 2017 17:35:44
We play the best team to get the result, period - if Can is giving his all and is also the right man for the job then play him, if he’s not playing like he’s committed, then he doesn’t play.

Right now he’s playing like he’s committed, so should be considered. Having said that I think our current best midfield is Hendo, Gini, Lallana anyway (in a 4-3-3). If Hendo is injured then Can should start at base of midfield.

8.) 14 Nov 2017 17:36:39
There would be always 2 CM regardless of what Lallana does and where he plays. One of the CM is Emre Can.
Lallana and Can are two different players completely unrelated in what they are asked to do. Can has been playing the sitting role recently and I doubt Lallana is a good choice to play as a DM.

We could have played for 900 minutes and not scored, games like that we should be popping 2 up top as we eent to swansea without a out and out striker. You need to play people with something to prove. Danny ings should have been given a start. And not starting lallana was criminal when it was clear as day we needed a little creativity.
