Alonso already spoken to ex team mates like Carragher, he wants the job. Great fit to take us forward and challenge for years to come.


1.) 01 Feb 2024 22:52:35
Well done FSG right?

2.) 02 Feb 2024 07:35:54
Wouldn’t Xabi be better talking to the club rather than former team mates if he wants the job?

3.) 02 Feb 2024 08:25:36
It also means all these inverted LB, RB bs will be gone. Nice!

4.) 02 Feb 2024 10:13:50
Yeah what a shame Lee who wants to be top of the table, already in a final and still fighting for 4 comps.

5.) 02 Feb 2024 11:09:08
Robbo and Tsimikas are weak in the air, Gomez is much better defensively, I hope Gomez keeps his place even when Robbo and Trent are back.

6.) 02 Feb 2024 14:19:36
Xabi speaking to carra instead of fsg for the job?.

7.) 02 Feb 2024 21:37:58
is this Xabi tapping up himself? :D.

8.) 03 Feb 2024 03:58:22
Carra trying to act like the unofficial representative of LFC

He's hanging around Gary Neville so much that he's actually starting to afct like him.

I thought that Carra had more class than that. clearly not!

9.) 03 Feb 2024 08:53:47
JLC stop talking rubbish. The whole thing is a rumour and Carra has said he and Xabi occasionally message. So your “class” comment is pathetic.

10.) 03 Feb 2024 11:57:26
Are the press back to tapping phones again then?

11.) 03 Feb 2024 11:57:36
Just to add, Cara lost any remnants of class when he spat in someone’s (girl? ) face, imo.

12.) 03 Feb 2024 22:24:55
Yo Frode
Not sure exactly what you understood by my comment, but it was directed at the fact that Carra should stop hanging around Neville. it was more of a dig at Neville

I'll draw pictures for you next time.

13.) 03 Feb 2024 22:59:34
@Faith that definitely should be banned if it isn’t already.

I am getting reports (isn’t that what people say these days) that Jurgen has arranged a little presentation for Xabi late in May when he hands over the keys to the caravan parked under the central pier at Blackpool, subject to the tide being out on 5he day, of course.

Heard that both Salah and Nunez will be unavailable for the final, hopefully Elliott is still buzzing and puts the shift of his life in. Took a while to get going against Luton like they all did but we are always better second half so i fancy a Chelsea to score first, 3-2 Liverpool win Sunday, UTFR.


1.) 23 Feb 2024 15:08:54
@FSGfleecingus, Lijnders' exact words, "Dom, Darwin and Mo we have to really see, we have two more days, ”.

While @RobboLFC said he has news that both will train with the first team on another thread.

Not saying you are both worng but you both cannot be right so, who am I to believe? Help me out here, people.

For me, I like a rumour or two and all that but I think we should actually believe the actual assistant manager and see what happens on Sun. Just saying.

2.) 23 Feb 2024 21:02:02
To be honest I hope we don’t risk any of the three if there is the slightest risk. We are playing well as a squad at the moment. Some of the young lads have earned the right to start / play and they aren’t going to let anybody down.

As for Dom, Mo and Darwin, we have bigger fish to fry before the end of the season. It’d be great if they are fit for Sunday but it would better to hold them back if they aren’t ready for it.

3.) 24 Feb 2024 03:18:52
Whenever someone says bigger fish to fry I can’t help but thinking of Robbie from Arsenal Fan TV ?.

4.) 24 Feb 2024 07:58:31
Obviously I know Chelsea is a tough game but I think we have enough to beat them without risking mo dom and Darwin so get them in the best shape fort city as that’s the big 1 for me . Would love to win the cup but the title is up for grabs this year and we have a great chance . So no risks taken.

5.) 24 Feb 2024 08:13:37
Really interesting narrative and I hope people are consistent with their comments about this game and their general assessment of how we approach the league cup.

I think we play the strongest team available whilst balancing injuries and rewarding squad players who have earned a starting spot. If everything is fit I’m think someone like Kelleher, Elliot, Grav, Gomez and Quansah may have started the game anyways.

6.) 24 Feb 2024 09:03:40
Agreed WDW.

7.) 24 Feb 2024 10:55:00
To be fair @Faith, nobody has said that we shouldn’t play our strongest team available. Again I think that we approach the cup with every intention of trying to win it. I don’t see a contradiction in saying we really want to win but we don’t want to risk key players who might be carrying an injury.

8.) 24 Feb 2024 11:55:54
With you there WDW - much rather have the 3 fit for city than risking them for this if not fully fit. To me that is the more important game in the context of our season and defs the game I’d rather win.

9.) 24 Feb 2024 12:25:01
Interesting. For me the next game is the most important. And with it being a cup final, potentially Jurgans last (hopefully not) we have to use them and try win the game.

10.) 24 Feb 2024 15:15:34
There is no way players should be risked. even if it is a final. Three players have already had injury setbacks, which is surprising enough being relatively close together. Risking them could potentially put them out for the season.

11.) 25 Feb 2024 06:24:33
WDW - I guess what I thought I was reading and hearing about this final (not just this thread) is a general sense that we have to win. Yet I recall couple years ago we had to convince people that winning the league and FA Cup was a good thing albeit missing out on the big two.

My thing is to just keep it consistent. For me I want us to win everything but recognise that there are levels to it lol as I’d said in earlier reply I would have expected that we played our strongest possible league cup line-up which should reward the fringe players who had really contributed to getting us to the final.

12.) 25 Feb 2024 09:59:34
@Faith - spot on mate.



08 Feb 2024 09:10:43
Morning, Sorry if i have missed it but are we seriously looking at Bakoyoko from PSV? We missed a trick with Diaby really so hope we aren't slow with this one, cheers.


1.) 08 Feb 2024 20:58:26
Missed a trick with Diaby? We can't sign every single player that is half decent!

2.) 09 Feb 2024 08:35:19
What trick did we miss then?

3.) 09 Feb 2024 08:36:28
I believe there are 5 or 6 people looking seriously @FSG. Then there are about a couple of hundred looking at him in a half hearted manner and the rest of humanity hasn’t declared any sort of interest whatsoever.

4.) 09 Feb 2024 11:59:48
TB2, you do know that we caouldn't have missed any trick with Diaby (who I wanted, as well should Salah had gone earlier) if indeed, we were never interested in him or if indeed, we didn't need him cos Salah was still here, right?

5.) 09 Feb 2024 12:59:59
Well as our club is obsessed with stats they would of seen Diaby was the most productive player outside of Salah on the right hand side, in any top flight league, he is doing very well at Villa and looks a threat, would of been a great signing for us.



18 Jan 2024 22:00:53
I find it laughable it being said we can't afford Mbappe, it's literally Salahs and Thiago wage combined, we would be crazy not to entertain the idea, more than do-able and would win us the league and CL.


1.) 18 Jan 2024 22:24:45
Would it though? We are a team built on talented players who have made their name with us. The times we’ve tried to buy ready made superstars it’s fallen flat on its face. Thiago and Keita being the main 2 examples.

Allison is arguably the only player we’ve signed who you could claim was already the best in his position although he’d achieved very little before signing for us.

For the money involved and the possible disruption to the squad I’d say no at this point. He’s got Real Madrid written all over him.

2.) 18 Jan 2024 22:28:34
OP, not sure you know the amount of money being talked about here. I don't know either but based on the amounts out there, it's going to take a lot more than Thiago's and Salah's wages combined and Im not even talking about the sign on fee which will be gi-normous as well. I mean, do you even realise the stature of the player we are talking about here? I don't think you do, respectfully.

3.) 18 Jan 2024 22:30:47
Keita was hardly Modric. He was definitely not a superstar.

4.) 18 Jan 2024 22:52:10
way too much money for a superstar who is not the best fit for the team.

5.) 18 Jan 2024 23:24:40
Mbappe reported wage demands: £1m a week. More according to some sources.

Salah and Thiago's combined wage: £550k a week.

Literally the same thing alright.

6.) 18 Jan 2024 23:27:59
Not in the Mbappe mould Mark but he was touted as the best midfielder in Germany and it was seen as a real coup when we signed Keita.

This season we signed a guy called Endo that most of us had never heard of and he’s been brilliant for us. That’s just how we roll.

7.) 19 Jan 2024 00:27:57
What about the crazy signing on fee which is about equal to salahs transfer fee probably. and all the circus he has around him.

8.) 19 Jan 2024 01:28:26
How exactly does signing him make us win the PL and CL? there's no guarantee he'd even play well in this league. For the money he'd want it'd be far too much of a risk, there's too many cons over the pros of signing that lad. Not a chance in the world would I want us to go for him.

If it's true and he wants a million a week, I wouldn't want him at 500k a week never mind a million! absolute daft money even today. I know the money side of things have got out of hand but that's rediculous and we're not that type of club to go paying somebody that. Nobody is worth that in my opinion, I don't care who it is.

Imagine the rest of the team? 'yeah nice one he's on about 6 times more then I am' it's not good for team morale or the club. Thankfully it won't be happening, guaranteed he'll either stay at PSG or go to RM. They can have him if they're daft enough to pay him.

9.) 19 Jan 2024 01:52:20
Still with the Mbappe nonsense? This isn't a clickbait facebook or twitter site.
Next time, start your post with : !

10.) 19 Jan 2024 06:37:10
Let’s face it Mbappe ain’t coming to Liverpool. He will most likely end up at Madrid as they will pay what it takes (within reason) to make the deal happen. But anyone saying they don’t want him, if it was remotely possible and the owners gave Klopp the go ahead and he wanted to join, are not serious. If a deal could be made you grab it worth both hands, irrespective of the costs involved. He is world class, plain and simple. Actually, I’m my opinion he is generational and should have left PSG years ago. Having said all that it’s a non starter so doesn’t matter anyways.

11.) 19 Jan 2024 09:39:35
Alonso you have to look at the bigger picture. Mbappe is a very good player but no player is worth what he would cost. Not just financially but in the harmony of the squad.

Look at the circus that surrounds him every single transfer window. He could just put it all to bed by saying what he’s doing but he whips it up to give himself leverage to get what he wants.

He would be an absolute disaster if we signed him. Good player but really not worth the aggro.

12.) 19 Jan 2024 09:47:41
Mbappe, salah and nunez would be some handful for defences though. I think the chances of signing him are probably 0.0000001% but it’s fun to think about! My personal preference is always someone lower profile and shape them to what we need and make them superstars!

13.) 19 Jan 2024 09:51:44
@SR, my sentiments exactly.

14.) 19 Jan 2024 09:56:22
Wouldn't it be great if all the clubs took a stand and offered him the same deal of £400k a week max with a reasonable signing on fee and said there you go, take your pick. Unfortunately, someone, somewhere is going to sign off on his ridiculous demands, artificially inflating the market all over again.

15.) 19 Jan 2024 12:09:28
Mbappe is a world class talent who can and likely would produce world class numbers in the premier league.

Eventually we are going to lose Salah who also produces world class numbers be it a transfer or Father Time and Mbappe would be a great player to fill those shoes.

But as it’s been pointed out above the financial package is astronomical and the choice between Madrid or Liverpool means it’s not going to happen.

Pipe dream but not going to happen.

16.) 19 Jan 2024 12:40:49
The only way they could work the wage issue is a massive signing on fee to offset the reduction in weekly wages to say £350-400k a week. Not saying it’s happening but he couldn’t come in on a 800k a week say. It would destroy the clubs wage structure.

Again not saying it’s happening but hypothetically couldn’t a club pay a higher signing on fee for a player which offsets the reduction of wages received in line with club wage structure?

I might be wrong but if he’s free to sign a pre contract, a club could offer a package in that structure. Which if we were ever considering it surely that is how we would offer any kind of deal. I think Mbappe knows he is not going to receive the type of wage he is getting now at any other club apart from Suadi, so he fully expects that in my opinion.

I highly highly doubt we will sign him, but I do think the club has interest in him. Maybe we have or are offering a package, and if he thinks it’s too low then so be it.

{Ed002's Note - Mbappe has an offer from Real Madrid. Liverpool has not made any offer.}

@VV, You could say the same about dortmund and Klopps record before he came, the next manager needs to be more than just about trophy wins on a cv, he needs to get the place, Amorin got Sporting, he will get Liverpool too.

Quansah is that plan.

VV usually wins? The training ground was attacked and the club a shambles before he came in, he took them to the league while promoting 3 young players who have become excellent players, he should be second choice miles ahead of anyone else.

It can only be Alonso or Amorin, at a push, Nagelsmann before Baryen would of been in the top 3 but he damaged himself sportingly there and his private life overshadowed him a touch.

Scouse john, depends if he likes the loyalty and love of the Liverpool fans or take the risk of the Madrid fans turning on him and having 2 years at Madrid if he can, he would take the job at Liverpool if offered, we need to offer him it, i'm sure we are working hard on it, winning Bundesliga would be the perfect send off, no one else gives a feeling that would soften the blow of Klopp going, can't think of anyone who comes close?

Danns intelligence, eye for a pass and movement in the U18's has been standout, i hope it develops as he moves into top flight football, his turn and pass for Gakpo before Elliot finish was superb.

I think Trent next to MacAllister with Slob infront is our best fit for midfield going forward.

Only 2 people feel a decent fit, Alonso and Amorin, both young, experienced lower levels and now flourishing in the spotlight.

If Pickford was at a top 8 side, he would be on the bench inside 2 months, he is bang average, making easy saves look good for the camera doesn't make you a good keeper, he can kick a mile, that's his best trait, how he is in front of Pope i will never know, he is just lucky, like David James was, that the competition isn't viewed as strong enough or the manager just likes him, Kelleher looked like a guy who needed more games to come out and fel like a No.1, he will get games now and he looks better for it, Allisson is the best out there so no chance Kelleher stays at No.1.

James is the reason we didn't win, he was awful, too young to have the gloves back then, he aged well but even then was only a shot stopper really, we would of won 2 leagues had he not been in goal, if we got The Great Dane in goal, the spice boys would of won something major.
