Any news on where Kent is most likely to move? Any advanced talks taking place?


1.) 03 Aug 2019 18:22:30
Leeds?


2.) 03 Aug 2019 20:03:27
Would be a good signing for them.


3.) 04 Aug 2019 11:56:30
I can’t see a move to be honest Har. From what I can tell it’s fairly stuck where it is. If there was a move away that would leave London and Surrey with a coastline which would be fun but I think East Sussex would be a bit exposed so it’s a non starter. There could be a loan to France but it take a while to get there.


4.) 03 Aug 2019 14:16:42
Last i heard was no club could afford him (they don't think he is worth it) and only want loan deals. Klopp Said no loans but when no bids come in we'll let him go on loan with an option/ obligation to buy or something.


5.) 04 Aug 2019 20:37:18
Not even close to an accurate prediction. In your defence Lerchy that’s how the vast majority of confident calls go on this site.


6.) 04 Aug 2019 22:41:05
The PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year? No interest!? Shockin.
He'll prob be sold for 6mil on Wednesday, no biggy. I'm actually way more curious to see if there'll be any late surprise incomings. I expect nothing, but they've surprised us before.

Ed a quick question if you have any info.

I remember laxalt being linked in the past but I'm sure you mentioned us giving up on any interest. With Milan now poised to sign Theo Hernandez would they possibly look to offer laxalt around at a decent price? Would it be a possibility we may look again at him if readily available or is it non runner?

{Ed002's Note - It is a good question. Laxalt would be happy to stay at Milan and it is Ricardo Rodriguez who was blocking his place in the first team for much of last season who is being offered around. However, with Marco Giampaolo as the new coach and Theo Hernandez joining it will still limit opportunities - although with serious financial issues they will be thinking about keeping him to cover the LB, LM and LW positions - which he is capable of doing. Interest remains from Atalanta and Newcastle enquired - seeing him as a left sided option to Kenedy. For me he would be ideal cover for LB, LM and LW at Liverpool but there has seemingly been no recent interest from the club although he is one of those players - like Valentino Lazaroon the right, who is comfortable in several positions.}


1.) 04 Jul 2019 12:16:41
Thanks for that answer, very insightful overview in fairness. It's his versatility indeed is what would have made him a sensible option too I think. Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

So we're half way into this annoying 2 week international break and I'm cracking up. Thinking ahead to United next week has me very excited but also a touch of nerves. When I look at this current Man U I see nothing to potentially worry me, shaky backline, midfield of invisible quality with Fred, Pereira, matic, lingard never up for a dogfight, . Pogba, rashford, martial supposed to be the quality dangermen are either struggling with injury or off form. Their manager looks lost and out of ideas, fans are fed up and frustrated and old Trafford is now a place where every side is getting joy.

I know this is a derby and we often struggle there but I just can't see where they can pull a big team performance from. No leaders and a less than strong manager who seems to have lost his players, drained of confidence.

Last year they were in form heading into this fixture but still sat deep and parked the bus. Mourinho no longer there to use his frustrating tactics that often stifled us. I think we might just spank them heavily. Be funny if we could put the nail in oles coffin and make it 2 managers in a row get the sack from United after we smash them.

I don't want to sound arrogant or cocky but can anyone see where they could possibly cause us problems? Last year firmino got injured, sturridge played. Salah was off form and Shaw got MOTM for man marking him. Milner played RB instead of Trent. Our midfielders were off form, We were out of sorts at that stage last season. Our pace has often given Maguire nightmare over the years, our midfield will dominate theirs no doubt and they can't buy a goal or even create chances against weak sides to be fearful of our defence having too many issues. They've scored 3 goals in their last 6 games against Astana, Rochdale, az alkmaar, Newcastle, west ham, and an arsenal side leaking goals. In oles 20 games since permanently signed they've only scored more than once in 3 of those games which is dreadful.

I just can't see how we won't walk all over them by the time next weekend arrives, I really can't.


1.) 13 Oct 2019 08:39:32
Never underestimate the opposition. Every team has the ability to pull a performance out from nowhere. We can't afford any complacency this season if we want to be in with a chance of finally winning the league after such a long wait.

I am more nervous about this game then other any game so far this season. I just hope we come out with a bang from the start and can put the game to bed as quickly as possible. If we score early I think Utd will lose their heads a bit and don't have the mental strength to dig deep and win it for Ole.

Red Sandman.


2.) 13 Oct 2019 09:30:10
I understand where you are coming from Har but some of that isn't quite correct. Man U had serveral in game injuries but still created 3 or 4 good chances. We didn't create any chances whatsoever - nothing in 90 mins. Henderson and Gini were awful and Mctominay was MOTM. Klopp should take a little blame as well he never pushed them on in the second half he seemed happy with a point. Also we allowed their crowd for once to get up by how bad we played.

An even bigger factor for me was Mane's poor performance in last years game. Mane carried the team since January going forward but had 2 poor games v Man U, and Everton.

We are better this season and just hope leasons have been learn't. I really hope Milner plays for me even at his age he offers more going forward than Gini and Heno put together.


3.) 13 Oct 2019 10:00:56
Man Utd will sit deep and look to hit on the counter, I think.
They’ll look to their first game, and win, over Chelsea as a blueprint.
Maguire certainly presents a danger at corners and set-pieces.
If Man Utd score first it could be problematic, if we score first we could tear them up.


4.) 13 Oct 2019 10:45:27
Huge game, if we win and force city to come to Anfield still 8 points behind the place'll be on legs, City'll be under huge pressure and we'll fly at them. the utd game itself is a toss of a coin, on form we should beat them but how many times during the likes of Rafa's and Houllier's reigns did we see superior United sides getting turned over at Anfield?


5.) 13 Oct 2019 11:01:39
We score first we win. Difference this year is Klopp is going for wins not draws away after only losing one game but not winning title due to too many draws.


6.) 13 Oct 2019 12:43:47
OP, I see where you are coming from BUT I think you are jumping the gun here. In the last 2 seasons, we have been the in-form team going into OT and some of our fans saying we were going to roast them. What happened, again? Ah yes, we have lost 2-1 and last season drew a game we could have lost in spite of all the favorable moments we had.

Moral of the story is that this is a HUGE rivalry game where form goes out the window. I mean, how many times have Utd in the pas, come to Anfield to face an LFC team in midtable and gotten slaughtered or won by a squeaker? Lots of times. Last season was a great example of this, as Mark says cos we created nothing and with Utd parking the bus, it was a tough game.

I propose that you and those who share your opinion, pipe down with that arrogant streak you have on now and get ready for a real battle cos even tho OGS is having a stinker, he would not want to lose to LFC and OT will be rocking for this one. Tay humble, my friend and all will be fine. Peace.


7.) 13 Oct 2019 18:08:49
I don't think it's arrogance RW, utd (that's Manchester utd) look like a mid table teM atm and we are flying at the top of the league having broken records with our winning streak.
It's odd, but we have been poor a few times this season yet still won. Signs of champions I suppose.

That said, I totally agree, utd have some top quality players, they just have a poor manager. He looks completely out of his depth and I think he knows it. In fergies time they barely needed coaching. The players all knew the drill. Anything could happen at old Trafford. They could get the win that kick starts their season. We will have to put in a good performance to win. I think there will be plenty of goals in it.

Don't we equal the city record if we win? Utd would love to stop us doing that, and we would love to make that landmark at the theatre of screams. I can't wait for it. I think it's our biggest test yet this season. If we can keep that 8 point gap, or even increase it!

Every season for 30 years I've had a feeling. A feeling it could be our year. This season I haven't had that feeling. Now it's an expectation. I fancy mo to put in a proper shift and get a brace, and hendo to finish them off, rashford gets one. So 3 1 I'm going for.


8.) 13 Oct 2019 20:09:41
I love your optimism Robbie but I keep telling you Heno will probably only scorce his usual one league goal, so you could wait all season for that. I will be wrong one week so hope its agains't the Manc's. We haven't won in the last 6 seasons away to Man U so everyone needs to be respectful. I remember an exact thread like this last year, how we would beat them easily and it was the same before the Everton Match. Some posters don't learn let's hope the manager and the players have learned something. This is Man U's Champions League final.

Man U were all over the place last year but they were far better on the day and deserved to beat us, we were awfulon the day. I just hope we remember to turn up this year and play to a high level. Mane will be the most important player IMO.


9.) 13 Oct 2019 20:53:54
I know marko, lol. But it's quite often big goals. And a third against utd would be massive.

I think it could light something in those new players at utd. When they experience that atmosphere. Players like maguire. I really think it'll be a test. Although we have won every game in the league that's not the case in Europe. Away at nasty atmospheres has different effects on different players. Hendo gets more wound up, mane can go missing, as can gini. Vvd, milly and firmino always handle It well. That does seem to have changed. Burnley was hairy, Leicester get in your face I suppose. We haven't played as well as we did last season, the football hasn't been as attractive but the tally is better.

The reason why the next league title is so massive as it'll be the floodgates opening. We'll dominate again. I think everyone over 35 knows it.

Hendo is in illustrious company as lfc captains who won the European Cup. And its for a reason. The engine, the speed, the determination, the hunger to succeed. I'm starting to think that hendo deserves the league, almost in a similar way to Gerrard. He's been with us for years, was a big signing, always been doubted, but now looking one of the most robust cms in Europe.


10.) 13 Oct 2019 21:48:15
Hope Hendo doesn't play tomorrow but he probably will. If he plays just hope he comes through unscathed, same as our other players away with England. All our other players should be back to training from tomorrow.

Hope he doesn't get his one goal tomorrow Robbbie, lol.

{Ed025's Note - i hope hendo does,nt play for england either mark, not to save him for utd, but because he,s an embarrassment in an england shirt mate..


11.) 13 Oct 2019 22:07:37
Redwolf why are you telling me to pipe down with my arrogance when I clearly stated In my post I wasn't being arrogant simply analysing the current situation. My point was that this isn't last year or the year before. United aren't on a honeymoon high confidence like under ole last year or the year before with mourinho always a thorn in our side.

I'm simply stating I believe this United side currently are spineless and the manager is dead man walking who's got none of his players fighting for him. You say OT will be rocking. There's still plenty tickets not even sold in EACH stand of OT for probably the first time ever in this fixture. Don't tell me to hide my confidence and instead show fear and caution when my post was clearly not made with blind arrogance.

Obviously the players and klopp will not be complacent but what's the point in us fans holding this fear and caution when it's only the players and management who need to. This was an issue for a few games with the crowd in anfield when we were letting our nervousness into the atmosphere. As fans we have every right to shout loud with confidence this week and let United know that old Trafford is far from a fortress anymore and we're going there hellbent on hurting them. My enthusiasm won't damage our performance in any way and even if we drop points why does it matter so much to you that me and others need to pipe down? Will we be the ones at fault if the team doesn't perform? This isn't last season or the seasons before, this is now so stop fearing a United side who have no reason to be feared currently.

{Ed025's Note - im with you har..


12.) 13 Oct 2019 22:08:02
Mark, how did Hendo (and however many goals he could score this season) get involved in a thread that is about what to expect in the utd game next week? Just asking for a friend.


13.) 14 Oct 2019 03:31:31
ED25, if you think Hendo is an embarrassment (captain of the CL winning team) in an England shirt what does that make Keane and pickford? those 2 Leading the England back line having shipped 13 goals in 8 games and dragging the club into a relegation dogfight. those 2 give me hope I might be able to win an England cap. lol.

{Ed025's Note - they are just as bad if not worse swish, hendo does a job at liverpool but should be nowhere near the national side, he does try hard though..

After the last international break we were heading into a period of 7 games in 22 days. 4 in the league, 2 in Europe and 1 in cup. I mentioned on here that I felt this run of fixtures was vital to stay in a strong position. We were 2 points clear of city back then, we've now opened up an 8 point gap. We've won our games by tight margins and not free flowing but city have dropped 6 points against wolves and Norwich which is a huge worry for them. I'm so glad we've managed to win maximum points to punish their loss of points.

It would have been frustrating to drop 2 points yesterday and I'm sure city would have seen our last gasp winner as a kick in the teeth. Delighted now going into this next break in such a strong position. Let's keep it going hopefully and not take our foot off the gas.


 

 

28 Aug 2019 00:19:02
Seems to be talk of us offering matip a new contract which he clearly has earned. Just a year left on his current one so I believe he'd have the option to pre negotiate with other clubs in January if not renewed before then. He's 28 now so a 3 year deal would be good business and with him currently confident in his form of late he will feel he's capable of holding down his starting role so now would be the perfect time to sign him up, . If he was still playing 3rd or 4th fiddle he would likely not have been keen to sign.

Similar to origi, he was surplus for a while but earned his game time and when the offer of a contract was there he was in a position to be happy to commit. Origi and matip were 2 players who at the start of 2019 most would have expected to be moving on with contract running down but both have played their parts and gained a Liverpool future. With AOC also extending its great to see that we continue to keep tying down our players to long contracts.

Puts us in strong position to avoid situations like losing emre can, Moreno etc for nowt. Wijnaldum I think doesn't have much left on his and I'd expect him to be the next to be rewarded if he can continue to show that he deserves it like matip and origi have. Sturridge and Moreno couldn't earn their deal and I'd suspect lallana might be one also who won't be offered anything unless he contributes.

Great business on our behalf and shows we have a happy camp in comparison to other clubs who have players stalling and turning down offers. Erikson, alderwield, Ramsey, koscielny, Hudson odoi, hazard, sane, De gea all recently causing their clubs hassle and public distraction.


1.) 28 Aug 2019 16:52:35
I’m genuinely surprised no contract has been offered before. I have no substance to my claims but perhaps Matip wasn’t happy at Liverpool being the number 4 centre back. He doesn’t get as much publicity as the others so it’s hard to know.

The only fact I do know is he took his chance brilliantly and if he did have any negative thoughts before I would be surprised if he still has them.


2.) 28 Aug 2019 19:21:27
g1dgo, not sure Matip deserved a new deal and had he not upped his game last season or had Gomez not gotten injured at the time he did, not sure Matip would have gotten the opportunities he got, he would be looking to leave now just like Lovren is. Glad for him and for us the penny dropped and he has now become well IMO, undroppable.

{Ed0666's Note - it’s funny that his game improved about the time his contract was up for renewal 🤣


3.) 28 Aug 2019 21:20:41
Come on Ed triple 6, you do know money is always a major issue, right?

{Ed0666's Note - huh?


 

 

21 Aug 2019 23:24:52
Looking forward to arsenal on Saturday after having a full week to prepare, anfield will be the difference, our team is designed to hurt this type of arsenal side at home, they're dreadful on the road too.

I'd want Gomez back in for his pace, fabinho and hendo with either gini or ox. Milner not the best option to start this type of game. I'm not worried about arsenal, they can't afford to start all 3 of auba lacazette and pepe with ceballos too. Maitland niles will be in for a tough day with robbo and mane if he's not given help on that wing. Same on the other wing.

Ceballos looked good at the Emirates against Burnley where he had acres of time and possession, he won't get that at anfield and a slow rash xhaka beside him won't be of any benefit. A CB partnership looking shaky will be dragged about by our front 3 and arsenal will find it hard to get their forwards into dangerous areas.

Arsenal really looked dodgy against Burnley and Newcastle both teams lacking real attacking threat yet they caused all kinds of problems. I can see us cutting them to shreds personally and inflicting a real hammering.

I'm usually very realistic and always cautious so this isn't red tinted over hype, I genuinely feel this is set up to be a big mis match in style.
Thoughts?


1.) 22 Aug 2019 00:46:10
Agree Gomez should play for his pace although i think matip has been r best defender defensively if that makes sense lol.

In midfield I'd play hendo, fab and gini.

We have looked a little shaky at the back at times so far this season and arsenal will have chances and I di expect them to score, but their defence is a car crash waiting to happen, and i predict we will win 4 2.

{Ed0666's Note - Jamie Carragher thinks they will cause us serious issues with their pace and our supposed new ‘high line’ defending. Personally I think he’s jumping on the sky bandwagon. Personally I think we’ll give them a pasting.


2.) 22 Aug 2019 01:10:59
Pepe will start for the first time and he's the anomaly in all this. They're also an enigma at the back. I really rate David Luiz but it obviously depends on if he turns up with his defensive head or his crazy head. I've no doubts that it will be a great game.

{Ed0666's Note - I don’t think they’re an anomaly at the back Epic I think they are just plain shi*. If we can’t beat a team with a defense that poor then we don’t deserve to win the game.


3.) 22 Aug 2019 01:41:12
A full weeks rest is a bonus.


4.) 22 Aug 2019 02:07:18
I wonder would they start pepe though? I think if he started you'd need to leave out either auba or lacazette in exchange for midfield strength, they would be taking a risk going that attack heavy at anfield.

Though they might want to play auba and pepe out wide and try to target our FBs I think that would play into our hands, they gave 2 weak full backs and with no support the likes of Trent salah and robbo mane getting 2v1 at pace would be devastating as it's been the last couple of seasons we've played arsenal at home. Interesting stat that each of our front 3 have scored in every single one of their games in this fixture.

{Ed0666's Note - I hear you mate their wide forwards don’t do the dirty work defensively like Salah and mane and obviously Bobby.


5.) 22 Aug 2019 07:17:38
I'm really looking forward to the game and I have no doubt our lads will rip their defence to shreds.


6.) 22 Aug 2019 09:58:24
Im really looking forward to the game but guys let's not get cocky and overconfident. They have a good team some really good attacking players and loads of pace.

On there day they could really hurt us. History is irrelevant.


7.) 22 Aug 2019 10:49:36
If our defending doesn't improve, Arsenal have the firepower up front to cause us problems.


8.) 22 Aug 2019 14:38:52
O think Gomez will start at Rb

usual practice for Klopp lately for defending team with pace.


9.) 22 Aug 2019 17:37:27
Arsenal have the firepower to cause damage to any team so that is not news to anyone who actually watches PL footie. People said the same thing last season before they came to Anfield and tho, they scored first, that midfield and defence, completely capitulated to our press and fitrepower that they conceded 4 in a 30 mins span. The same good attack, average midfield (Xhaka will make any good midfield weaker) hopeless defence, will turn up at Anfield this Sat, to face the very same attack that ripped them a new one. Sorry, I love our chances under these circumstances. It's not about being cocky. It's about being certain of your strengths perfecting them. Klopp does not allow for such things in his prep. for games and I know we will be fully prepared to bring the pain.

As for our perceived weaknesses in defence and to some extent, midfield, I think it is mainly down to our boys still trying to gel after preseason and with Adrian in goal, who is diff. from Allison. The full week we have had will hopefully allow us to get thing right for the most part and with Anfield rocking to the beat of the Champions of Europe, I am confident we can get the win.


10.) 24 Aug 2019 09:29:29
Yeah I wouldn't say we're being cocky or arrogant just assessing the realistic chances. I was pretty worried we would struggle vs Southampton and would need to grind out a narrow win, I'm much more confident of this game playing to our favour as certain teams suit us to play against.

As silly as some may think, I'd fancy us at home to arsenal more than I would if we were playing Burnley at turf moor for example. Bournemouth too always get smashed by us and city simply due to how their set-up is perfect for us and city to exploit.

Arsenal haven't changed much to make me think we can't run them ragged again in a realistic not arrogant prediction.

Yeah beckers but I don't see that kind of attitude being in Brewsters personality. He seems like a decent level headed kid so i doubt hed be the type to throw toys out of the pram. We seen lately with Camacho and Duncan, both 18 year olds who wanted to move on, I've no issue with any player making a career choice to move on but it's how they both acted publicy made me glad they're gone, when 18yr olds who've proved nothing start letting their false ego show so young then I can't think they will have the right mentality to succeed. Camacho publically bemoaning the decision of his manager to play him out of position is appalling lack of respect while Duncan publically slating the club shows me he's another kid with the wrong attitude.

Then we see the likes of origi, multi million pound international player who spent time sent out on loan, along with other periods where he was frozen out but he kept his head down and earned his future at the biggest club he'll play for simply by doing his taking on the field and never bringing the club or staff into public dispute. I feel Brewster is more like origi than the other 2 egos.

It's up to him but he's still only a teenager starting off his first season innvolved in the first team squad of the European champions. He knows he will have to be patient and I don't see the urgent rush for him to be demanding regular first team starting opportunites just yet, he'll get more game time as the season unfolds and it's up to him to show his potential. In 2 or 3 years our forwards will be passing into their 30s if they're all even still here by then, Brewster will only be 21 or 22 so I hope their isn't big pressure on him to feel he needs to rush his career.

If he's confident of his ability he'll want to stay and prove he's good enough. The likes of Abraham, Kane, rashford have shown that when they were given the rare chance in the team despite being down the pecking they took advantage with explosive immediate impacts. Brewster is still a kid who's coming back from a long injury. His career path doesn't need to be defined in the next year.

What I like is that klopp sees something in him to keep him around like he did with trent in his early days. He never wanted to keep Kent, Wilson, ojo around the team but he seems to have belief in young rhian which is great.

I think right now we need to be cautious as 1 or 2 injuries would mean he'd be needed in matchday squad, with league cup, fa cup and club world cup he should be guaranteed another few starts before January window ends, I'd think a loan opportunity should only be evaluated when we analyse our situation come then.

This is all knee-jerk reaction stuff to presume Gomez must want out, simply because he's been kept out of the team for a short spell after shaky performances. This stage 12 months ago he was the hottest young CB around, he hasn't spent the year out of form or out of favour, he's been kept out due to his teammate on form and his own personal lack of form, . This is a short term current situation which will change for sure in the future, the lad is 22 and it's near impossible to see where he would think is a better place for his near and long term career to be, klopp likes him and is only protecting him in the same way he did Robertson, oxlade Chamberlain, fabinho. This time last year everyone was saying fabinho was unhappy and be gone in January.

Gomez has a big part to play in the future of this club, I've no doubt about that, . Let's not put so much pressure or expectation on him during a time where he needs to be left to regain his focus and confidence, he needs our support now more than ever.

It's about finding the right balance with consideration for the oppositions style too. Keita and ox certainly add that offensive aggression but they also left our midfield open and back 4 exposed at times. I think gini and fabinho start but I also think much might depend on wether Trent can play or if Gomez slots in to RB. I think klopp would want Henderson on that side if Trent was involved but if Gomez starts maybe OX or keita could get picked as Gomez wouldn't need as much protection with his recovery pace and lack of instruction to get too advanced as Trent does.

Either way it's great to see the depth and variation of klopps midfield options, having 2 or 3 midfielders with the ability to be starters available on the bench can let klopp change the approach hugely if needed in a game.

Yeah ed it seems west ham are conceding many more chances since he's been out, he seems to lack the control and calmness around the box that fabianski offers and the defence also is suffering his loss.

{Ed001's Note - they will continue to struggle without him, very underrated keeper.}

It's only November so I'd never call it anywhere near over but many are backing us genuinely now as we're much stronger than last year in squad depth and a strong mentality while city currently are looking much more vulnerable than they have over last 2 years.

Even if we were equal on points right now I think many would still be backing us as better than city., Our lead can't be compared to last seasons week long 7 point gap as it's not relevant to this season.
Fact is we are improved and city are weakened from 12 months back and most neutral observers can't see us dropping 9 more points than city Will over next 25 or so games. Its not just the lead, its the teams mentality is what has so many people claiming we are not catchable.

I don't agree with bold claims like that but at the same time I've never felt a genuine confidence in a Liverpool team more than right now that we have a real powerhouse who are the real deal.

I'm also not going to ever rule out city but this isn't the same city you say won 18 of their final 19 games last season. This is a city side who've lost 3 games this season and have dropped more points at home already than they have over last 2 years. They've had arguably the easiest on paper first 12 fixtures of anyone and have dropped points in 4 of those, tougher fixtures will only cause more issues.

We're now the team who don't lose games. city are far from the dominant team of the past 2 years who rarely dropped points, they're showing they have more weakness than ever under pep while our current run of results over last 20-30 games suggests even a dip in form would not see us dropping points for too long a period.

That's ridiculously unfair on Trent. Just because sterling saw a lot of the ball means nothing. How many times did he get goalside of trent with all the touches he had, barely any. Trent stood him up and forced him to byline nearly every attack and sterling was visibly reacting with frustration as he was regularly closed down. Not many RBs have kept sterling so frustrated over the last 2 seasons. Trent performed excellent in defence and attack and was far from being exposed like you think.

I'm glad to see you've acknowledged fabianski who I feel doesn't get the credit he deserves, his performances over the last couple of seasons has been very good and he's up there in the top 3 or 4 PL keepers in my view.

{Ed001's Note - I think West Ham's recent dip in form is in large part down to losing him. Roberto is terrible.}
