The issue again has been muted, Stevie G to take over if and when JK decides to leave, Whilst it may seem a match made in heaven there is no real reason to think it could be so. Cast your mind back to Graham Souness, he had all the attributes not unlike SG but was not particularly successful. Surely someone who should be considered is some one who is totally aware of JK's methods and seeing how successful these have been his present right hand man something could be the man. Who knows it could be the start of another boot room legacy. Just a thought.


1.) 28 Aug 2019 11:08:08
Imo Lijnders should be the one hopefully alongside Krawietz if he doesn't retire with Klopp.

2.) 28 Aug 2019 11:13:54
I think we are jumping the gun here!

He is contracted till 2022, and we must assume that Klopp Won’t leave until then, that is a LONG time, lots can change by then.

I am sure the club have plans, but let’s just enjoy our time with big Kloppo!

3.) 28 Aug 2019 11:21:39
I love the idea of a return to the boot room days but are we confident that Pep can make that step up from a number 2 to being the boss? I’m not doubting his football brain at all, but the modern day manager has to have so many different skill sets and the fans have to have absolute patients. I’m just not sure how much of a gamble that would be. I know he was sacked for not getting promoted in his time as a manager, but I’ve no idea if he was very harshly done by (to be fair firing a manager after a year is most often a bit harsh) but is he Liverpool manager material, or is he an outstanding coach? They aren’t necessarily the same thing.

4.) 28 Aug 2019 12:34:13
I don't know who Liverpool will appoint when Klopp finally leaves, but I imagine there will be several high profile managers interested.
As for Gerrard, he has done nothing whatsoever to suggest he should become manager at Liverpool. There are plenty of decent players who have failed miserably at management. A good player is not necessarily a good manager.

5.) 28 Aug 2019 12:38:30
Lets hope they scout the next manager as well as they scout for players.
I don't think it would be a good idea to appoint Stevie as he would have too much of a connection to the club which can cloud judgment, unless he proves to be an outstanding manager in the mean time.

6.) 28 Aug 2019 12:57:57
Gerrard this far has done nothing to suggest he should be our manager. It does not strike me as coincidence that when we hire proven league winners (Rafa, Dalglish, Klopp) we have had success in the way of winning trophies, whereas others have been pretenders despite their best efforts. If Gerrard can put Rangers consistently on top in Scotland, get them into CL group stages and playing good footy againts some top European sides like Celtic were a few years back, then that might be enough to sway me. Can’t see that happening in the next 3 years though!

7.) 28 Aug 2019 13:37:25
this is getting really tedious now. it's amateur hour, and unnecessary to rationalize why stevie wouldn't be suitable based on a litany of former ex-pros who have failed as managers. also, it's a bit deficit focused to just jump straight to the negative bits. anyways, it's ages away. shouldn't ya be looking no further than the next transfer window in january to get ya blood boiling haha.

8.) 28 Aug 2019 15:13:20
Yeah, let's talk about how many goals Glatzel will score in 3 years time when he takes over from Firmino.

9.) 28 Aug 2019 15:33:51
My only concern here is what the message from JK - which probably got lost in translation - will do to the players mindset. I'm sure we all recall that Man United had a bit of a blip when Fergie announced he was leaving well in advance, something he then went back on anyway.

10.) 29 Aug 2019 14:13:40
If it is someone who needs lots of patients maybe we should go for that continental chap Dr Oetker?

11.) 29 Aug 2019 21:19:50
Come on guys, let's not be talking about this consistently until 2022. Let's enjoy the ride we are on with Klopp now. Plenty of time to pick up this conversation at a later date. Let's not worry about it too much.

12.) 30 Aug 2019 00:49:15
To be fair this klopp interview has been interpreted out of context. He simply mentioned that when he does eventually leave us that he wants to take some time off instead of jumping into another job. Never mentioned any timeline or plans of when that will be. He has 3 years left which is a long time really and a lot can change in that time, if we start dominating with repeated success I'm sure he won't walk away from that but also who knows he could see a huge downturn like he had in BVB and not even see out his contract.

Let's take a step back from pointless future speculation as any managers stock can be much higher or lower in a few years than currently.

13.) 30 Aug 2019 10:53:27
That sort of sentimental decision-making is what has got United stuck with absolute mediocrity in Solskjaer. I am hoping, when the time comes, that the club are smart enough to make a decision based on rational thinking and coaching quality, not on emotion and nostalgia.

14.) 30 Aug 2019 19:21:28
I wouldn't rule out Stevie the opportunity solely because he's a club legend, but we're talking about three years down the line. That's a deadline that he can work towards if he really sees himself as following on from Klopp.

His plan should be along the lines of: dethrone Celtic this season; move to a Championship team for next season and get them promoted; then manage to keep them up while displaying attractive and pressing football in the same style that Liverpool currently play.

If he could achieve those things in 3 years, I'd be happy with him to be Klopp's replacement. He needs to look at Liverpool's style of play and implement that as his own, and tweak how he sees necessary. It will be Mr. Edwards' choice if he's still at the club and he would no doubt be looking for managers who play a similar style and have made a success of it. Surely (IF he even wants to succeed Klopp), should be the blueprint he should be working towards. If he doesn't do this, or would want to implement a different style of football, then he shouldn't get the job, quite simply. But I'm not purely against it as long as he shows over the next three years that he's the perfect replacement.

{Ed025's Note - i dont think 3 years is long enough see if he smiles.. :)

15.) 30 Aug 2019 20:31:47
Ed025, I agree that for Stevie it's a short amount of time, but I think that what I'm saying is correct that if he ever wants to be Liverpool manager, he should adopt Liverpool's playing style with his own teams and show that he can be successful doing so.

I think it's quite clear that when Klopp is replaced, it will be with a manager that adopts the same style. If that's Gerrard, I don't know, but the football director will want to keep the style the same, that's for sure. What I was really getting at is IF he wants to be Liverpool manager one day, that's what he should be working towards.

I really have no preference to who the replacement is. I just have a good idea that that's what the director of football will be looking for. If Gerrard isn't doing that with his own teams, he won't be in contention.

{Ed025's Note - hes miles of even being considered as an option epic, good players dont always make good managers mate as has been said on here many times, also he has the charisma of a coconut which means hes hardly likely to live up to klopps man management skills..

16.) 30 Aug 2019 20:51:02
Ed025. Who has the same charisma? Should we appoint Barry Fry?

I'm not pioneering for Gerrard to be Liverpool manager whatsoever. I'm just saying that if he wants to, that's the blueprint he needs to follow. And I said in my last post, three years is an awfully short time for him to turn into the perfect Klopp replacement.

Actually, if I had anything to do with it (which I don't), I'd take a completely different approach to when Liverpool wouldn't let Dalglish have a sabbatical and let Linders be caretaker manager for a year and Klopp can come back refreshed. But I guess that's an ideal world and who says that his style will even work in 4 years time?

{Ed025's Note - sam allardyce and david moyes are looking for new clubs epic, never say never they say mate.. :)

17.) 30 Aug 2019 21:43:15
Where is Sami hyypia these days? Is he currently managing? He always struck me as a former player who looks like he has the strenghts to make a good coach and i remember a few years back he was doing decent starting off but no clue where he's at now. ?

18.) 31 Aug 2019 13:59:52
If the next 3 seasons go well, and Klopp and Edwards want Pep Ljinders to take over, the job will be handed to him on a silver platter. I doubt anyone else will even be considered unless he turns it down.

But 3 years hence is a long time. So this is all speculation.



28 Jun 2019 16:02:02
With it being reported that Camacho has completed his transfer to Sporting I think we can safely assume that JK is not interested in Bruno Fernandes. It looks like he is prepared to go with what he has with the likes of AOC, and NK being available. I think as well he will go with Brewster and keep Origi. If that what he thinks I trust his judgement.


1.) 28 Jun 2019 16:22:34
I think it was all just wishful thinking. By all accounts it doesn't look like we're in for any player of that caliber this window. All reporters saying 20m to non founds earmarked for investment for the summer, and I can't see us strengthen the first team for that amount. A couple of good talents for the u-teams would be nice though.

2.) 28 Jun 2019 16:24:18
This makes no sense, it is very rarely the case where transfers from 2 clubs depend on each other. Swaps generally don't happen. So if Klopp wanted Bruno Fernandes he might still want him. Them buying one of our kids won't matter.
We will buy a few players. But there is no need to panic. We've already got an outstanding team and panel.

3.) 28 Jun 2019 16:31:21
Dont know how you come to that conclusion on the 28th of June! Pretty daft to me.

4.) 28 Jun 2019 16:45:39
28th of June and the experts on here think the window is closed. At least wait until the 10th of August before starting the hand wringing and crying.

5.) 28 Jun 2019 18:40:00
It's still June, plenty of big teams have not made a major signing yet. We are obviously after a left back and and an attacking mid/ forward player and they do not need to be signed by July 1st. let's see where we are in August.

6.) 28 Jun 2019 21:17:22
Not technically a swap, but Barcelona and Valencia just bought each other's GK's!

7.) 28 Jun 2019 21:26:40
NK injured again after getting rushed back by Guinea.

8.) 28 Jun 2019 22:01:37
Whos to say a nice easy transfer doesnt build a good relationship for when we want a player of theirs?

9.) 28 Jun 2019 20:00:46
I think its short sighted. We lacked goals and guile in midfield and with due respect to Keita and AOC, theyre not the players to offer this. We need a midfielder who can score goals and unlock tight defences with a clever pass. If we stand still now, we will move backwards. Its clear we lack creativity and goals in midfield last season, we should go for Fernandes as hes one of the best available. Theres no point going for James Maddison as hes a dyed in the wool United supporter, Coutinho has burnt his bridges, Fekir isnt happening and as Ed002 has mentioned, Ziyech has considerable baggage.

10.) 29 Jun 2019 08:04:38
what exactly is short sighted? Camacho to sporting has nothing to do with BF or any other transfer for that matter! Keita and ox both have goals in them.

interesting that you call that out as a big miss - given we have a club record total points in the league for the club and are champions of europe.

of course we want to improve but i didn't realise the window shut on 28th June?

11.) 29 Jun 2019 08:17:49
What's "short sighted"? . Majority of replies that I've read from the Ed's say they expect an attacking MF to be targeted. Wait until the 10th of August to start the whining.

12.) 29 Jun 2019 10:05:09
With Lallana staying for one more season, Ox coming back and Keita more used to the EPL, I think there's zero chance we are buying another number 8~10. Unless Lallana leaves, It should be a left back and maybe a winger. I was sure we would buy a winger too, but thinking about Origi's development this season and how Shaqiri will also be more used to our system + Ox, I'm not so sure.

13.) 29 Jun 2019 11:30:40
If the only player were looking to add is a versatile striker costing no more than 20m, then yes it is very short sighted, in fact it would be a waste of 20m considering we have Harry Wilson. It was evident on top many occasions last year that we lacked an attacking midfielder who could score goals and pick a pass when teams are parking the bus. It was the bore draws against City, United, Everton, West Ham and Leicester that cost us the title and inability to get through them that was a problem. Our midfield hardly weighed in with many goals at all. As for the argument that Keita and Ox have goals in them, this is a shaky argument as Ox has never bagged double figures and the most hes got in a PL season is 3, and Keita needs to learn to speak English and stay injury free. But again, between either of them, they dont have the vision of a De Bruyne, a Silva (either David or Bernardo) or any midfielder of that skill and ability, because they lack the skill set.

{Ed001's Note - why is Wilson relevant? He is not the answer.}

14.) 29 Jun 2019 13:30:52
Jk not interested in BF has AOC, NK, F, GW, JH plus RB, RF and HW who can all play behind the striker. Also STOP USING ACRONYMS.

15.) 29 Jun 2019 15:21:13
6 Times, are you new at LFC cos what you just said about Ox and Naby lacking guile in midfield, makes little sense? Before Ox got injured, he was tearing it up in the PL and the CL.

Go ask Pep the complete damage he did to them in the PL and CL affairs where we thumped them 10 goals to 4 with Ox scoring twice and facilitating the front three to score their goals as well.

As for Naby, he just started to offer that guile and goals you claim he does not offer, before he got injured at Barcelona so again, your post lacks any empirical evidence to support your opinion on both of these players. And as for Wilson, Ed02 has said he is getting sold and NO, he is not the answer either.

16.) 29 Jun 2019 18:06:13
Just my opinion but our midfield is the main reason why we have such an attack minded back four. If we add an all out attacking midfielder then that would mean less protection for our back four. Any of JH, Fab or GW can drop back when need be. I think this is why we saw so little of Shaqiri last season. I couldn't see any significant flaws in his game so I guess it was down to tactics. We conceded the least amount of goals last season and were only behind City by about 5 goals.
That being said I would absolutely love us to sign Bruno Fernandes but I don't feel that desperation to sign players that I felt in seasons gone by.

17.) 29 Jun 2019 18:44:34
Ox and Keita are good at what they do, but they lack the vision and game intelligence that we lacked at vital moments that City have in abundance in De Bruyne, David Silva and Bernardo Silva. We do lack a creative midfielder who can score vital goals and find a telling pass in tight situations. Also 20m doesnt go very far in this market, and if we sold Wilson to, for example, bring in someone like Maxwel Cornet, that would be very poor business indeed.

18.) 02 Jul 2019 20:46:03
6Times, Klopp's midfield from his Dortmund days, does NOT and has NEVER played with a true no. 10. He values athleticism and energy over guile and should we even need guile and intelligence, Bobbie can provide that. Klopp was going to keep Cou cos he would accommodate him in our midfield even tho, it left us light at the back when we lose the ball. There is a reason why after Cou left, we were better on the counter with Ox's ability to break the lines with pace and power and damage teams. Again, ask Pep at City. Also, Ox could track back and help defensively, something Cou had stopped doing.

Also, your comparison btween Wilson and Max Cornet is ludicrous. How could you say that an unproven Harry Wilson (who has NO game experience in the top division) being sold and a proven Max Cornet (Ivorian international, CL experience with Lyon and top flight experience in France) would be poor business? How do you even work that stuff out?



21 Jan 2019 20:21:34
On Liverpool live it is clawing that Fakir has said a transfer to us is still on the agenda. Does any of you Edds have any knowledge of this.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of plans for him to sign this month. But if he has said it is on, then he should know better than.}

1.) 21 Jan 2019 22:31:40
Come on mate let’s move on. It’s not happening.

2.) 21 Jan 2019 23:49:53
Pretty certain we don't have a fakir coming.

Or if we do, I'm sure his salary will be literally pittance.

3.) 22 Jan 2019 00:57:01
It’s fakir news.

{Ed0333's Note - ha ha I see what you did there, good one mate.

4.) 22 Jan 2019 09:50:58
I only asked.

5.) 22 Jan 2019 10:31:25
I wouldn’t rule it out Virgil. Klopp obviously likes him and if he’s proved his fitness enough and Lyon are willing to negotiate I see no reason why it couldn’t happen.
Unlikely I admit and quite honestly I’m not bothered either way but how many times where we told ‘Salah won’t be moving to Liverpool unless it’s to replace Mane’ or ‘Van Dijk deal is off due to tapping up debacle’.
Never say never mate he’s obviously on the move somewhere and I wouldn’t put it past Edwards to get a deal done if it’s what we and the player wants.

6.) 24 Jan 2019 03:27:50
I agree Bobby b, we aren't getting enough goals from midfield. FSG were obviously willing to finance the deal. I think he has proved the injury to his knee is not a major problem. Just like klopp and Liverpool to pull off a major signing towards the end of the window.



28 Dec 2014 19:49:43
Hi eddy is there any truth in our signing bernidino(spelling) of west brom and what do you think.studge is due back but I am concerned about his injury issues thank and all the best for 2015


{Ed001's Note - I am not aware of any truth in him coming to us in January, though we are watching him regularly. We are just one of many keeping tabs, no more.}

1.) 29 Dec 2014 09:22:39
Buying Berahino makes no sense. Too similar to Origi in every way except Nationality. I'd even put Origi slightly ahead of him. Pure waste of money.

If we need to buy a youngster again buy Dybala. Gives us a different option of striker and looks unreal. He's left foot looks a real banger. A good few of Berahino's goals are penos.

Personally I'd go for Vela, Doumbia, Martinez etc. Ones with proven goal scoring records.

If not these, then Jaime Baez. Far cheaper and looks the real deal on Youtube.

To be fair, my knowledge of Dybala and Jaime Baez is probably not good enough to judge properly but one thing I am almost certain of, berahino will be more money flushed down the toilet.

2.) 29 Dec 2014 18:55:54
We might also be watching Benidorm on ITV.

3.) 30 Dec 2014 00:54:09
Berahinho is a great talent, but for anything over £15m, we need a proven talent, not more potential.



08 Jul 2014 19:20:19
What has changed that seven months ago we were trying like,,,,,, to sign Kono now we appear to have no interest at all and appear to be prepared twice as much for markovic

If we just consider the position regarding relegation and promotion it is logically impossible to abandon the season, the ramifications of doing so are impossible.


1.) 13 Mar 2020 19:09:41

Sorry Robby I don’t really understand your comment. If the season was abandoned and I was a supporter of team with a chance of being promoted to the premier league I don’t think I would too pleased to be denied that chance with a number of games to be played.

3.) 13 Mar 2020 21:52:05
Of course we're not going to be happy. Neither are Leeds or Leicester. I'm not sure who sits 16th atm but I guess they will be quite happy, as will utd and arsenal, who have an extra year to improve their teams.

I want the season to be finished by hook or by crook. I want to see hendo lift the league title. I hope there is a way for it to happen. But there are only 2 ways it can go I'd imagine. Either we finish the league delayed by a few weeks, or we start again. I'd say everyone bar us, Leicester and the bottom 3 would be happy to start it again. It'd be heartbreaking if we don't get the title after such a dominant season.

4.) 14 Mar 2020 11:14:16
Should have been lest wasteful against Man Utd and not taken Watford for granted. We would have already wrapped it up if we had been slightly more focused.

I would like to know what Eddoo2,s opinion is of John Colman, s quote that the winter break should apply to all teams. That seems to me to be ideal When you consider the lower teams are littered with old pro, s, pitches needing some TLC like Tranmere for example. Why not.


{Ed002's Note - I don't know what John Coleman has said but from the tone I guess it is the Accrington coach. The Football League have discussed and want a winter break but with a 46 game league season already in the lower divisions it makes it difficult to schedule. I agree it would be desirable and they are open to seeing if something could be possible going forward.}

1.) 04 Feb 2020 14:35:48
I think there needs to be a lowering of teams in them leagues. 24 teams is far to many but they would never agree to it. my be they should make a an extra league so have the championship league 1 and then try to have a north and south league 2 to help the league 2 sides with travel costs. Because with so many lower league teams struggling with debt there has to be something sorted to help move the game on. As for fa cup I don't think premiership sides should get the money for playing in the 3rd 4th and 5th rounds I don't think £135000 for the 3rd round means anything to them but share the 20 premier teams money helps out £180000 for winning round 4 and £360000 for winning round 5 until the league 1 and 2 teams are out. and give the lower team the option to swap an home game for an away tie to help give them more money.

2.) 04 Feb 2020 19:52:09
I agree grino. Either keep 72 teams and have 4 leagues of 18 teams in the Championship, league 1 and league 2 north/ South. Or promote a few from the conference and have 4 leagues of 20 teams.

Since they have more Cup games than prem teams they should have 18 teams per league.



23 Jan 2020 16:55:15
I can't help but notice that quite often eddo2 makes adverse comments about how are club is run (not the team ) . I have never believed that the ethos of our club is very much in common with all the clubs who aspire to win trophies and his latest comments re treatment of young suggests we don't really look after them. Its ironic that this comes when we are about to face one of our young rejects who is now captain of Wolves Connor Cody. It is sad that young players are rejected but obviously in this boys case his coaching at LFC was invaluable to him he just was not considered good enough for us.




18 Dec 2019 14:57:53
In Harvey Elliot we have a fantastic talent who provided he stays level headed and continues to apply himself will much sooner than later will be a top class player for us and talk of Jadon Sancho and 100 million are completely false.




12 Nov 2019 22:57:13
Just watched a video of Sterling stamping on Van dykes foot nothing could be more deliberate Sterling was definitely off his head and deserved a red card.

Considering that Herta Berlins manager is reported as saying Grujic was one of the best midfielders in their league, how can you accuse Liverpool of overpricing him except of course Liverpool dont want to sell him. Why would we keep a player who has no future with us. To compare him with Markovich was unreal. He cost us reported 20 million, so why shouldnt we try to recoup a decent return for him, and I think its fair to say given the few appearances he made for us he didnt look like he could handle the premier league.

Given the quality of VVD and GOMES I think it would be very difficult to get the quality we would require because they would not sign to “ sit on the bench”. I am not totally impressed with either Matip or Lovren and if there is not enough confidence in our academy prospects at this time then I think we need to be looking at players who are experienced and although past there best, they are reliable. I will leave that category to the Edds.
