Shaq gone to Lyon for 9.5 mil pounds. Still think one of Origi/ Minamino will have to go to bring in a new forward.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 22 Aug 2021 20:11:26
Not really? If the owners cab find the right payment plan with a club they have now opened up an additional spot in the squad which needed to be available, it just depends on if we can find a club willing to take spreader payments I guess.


2.) 22 Aug 2021 19:58:55
just put it on the balance sheet and get us to a bit better position financially.


3.) 22 Aug 2021 20:40:28
I think Minamino will stay and fill that Shaq/ Origi role, he had a very good preseason and I think he can play a good enough role for us this year.

Looks like James Pearce just confirmed Thiago to LFC for 30 million euros nearly done.
Our midfield looks wicked wow!

Indian Buzzer

1.) 17 Sep 2020 09:44:46
Literally just read that mate. The squad we have is immense. These lads have took us to heights we have dreamed of but i can't lie I'm very excited if this transfer was to go through. Thiago is a fantastic player to watch and will be even better if we are watching him play for us.


2.) 17 Sep 2020 09:46:18
Brewster sale is confirmed now.


3.) 17 Sep 2020 10:07:49
Until ED002 confirms we have actually spoken with Bayern I will not believe anything.

We have been caught out too many times to believe anything that is written on social media.


4.) 17 Sep 2020 10:10:06
Fantastic player and our midfield does look wicked. But how is Klopp going to rotate and keep happy Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Keita, Jones, Chamberlain, Milner and Thiago?!


5.) 17 Sep 2020 09:47:01
Just read the same article, still thinks it's a lot of money for someone in the last year of contract but he will improve the squad.
Ed's any more yo add.


 

 

28 Dec 2018 22:34:32
Is it just me or has anyone noticed that Ed002 saying Salah's agent has been hawking him to RM has very few people on this site worried compared to last season?
Its a testament to how far we have come in the last 2 seasons that we have the resources, pull and faith in our manager to replace Salah if he were to leave (not saying he will go) . We could easily squeeze 150-180 million pounds of RM and replace him with someone like Pulisic and a high end forward without having to spend a penny apart from the Salah money.
Still think RM will go for Neymar or Mbappe though. If they are throwing everything they have on a high end forward and then tighten the purse strings afterwards, it will be Mbappe and Hazard (if they can shift Isco) imo.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 29 Dec 2018 03:35:34
Really hate these agents. Hawking around so that they can engineer a move for them to milk money out of it. But hey, that's their job anyway.

If he moves, so be it. I'll be disappointed definitely. But he cannot be the only player in the world that can help the club moving forward. There are lots more out there. Some maybe not yet unearthed or heard of. Some already in the club.


2.) 29 Dec 2018 08:42:42
We heard the same thing all last year. and we can’t stop it anyway no ones bigger than the club 🤷🏼‍♂️.


3.) 29 Dec 2018 09:27:23
so has ed002 said his agent has been trying to get a move again this season, as I have not seen anything tried a search but could not see anything?

{Ed025's Note - yes he has..


4.) 29 Dec 2018 09:54:27
is this for a summer move I do think Madrid will go for hazard if he does not sign a new contract as this will work out a lot cheaper with his contract so short 1 year left In the summer I think. and they look like they need to do a good bit of business.


5.) 29 Dec 2018 11:12:40
RM will go for Hazard in the summer as he will be cheap with only a year remaining on his contract. Their high profile forward signing will be either Mbappe or Neymar. Salah will just have to slug it out at LFC for the foreseeable future unless he downs tools like Coutinho and Klopp gets fed up of him.


6.) 29 Dec 2018 13:49:56
The time for Real to buy Hazard was last summer, changing situations has meant they've moved on to Neymar and Mbappe.


7.) 29 Dec 2018 16:01:21
Well we should be worried. He would be a hard act to follow but if we continue to play to the level we are and win a trophy or two then it hopefully will be easier to attract top players.


8.) 29 Dec 2018 23:05:22
I know I might sound like an idiot BUT with Salah being such a grounded young lad, is it likely he is looking for a move or is it his agent looking for a big paypacket?

{Ed002's Note - This has been done to deathg in the past - don't open it up again.}


9.) 30 Dec 2018 04:11:18
If he leaves then fine but Atleast he goes with a premier league trophy and some wonderful memories. Hopefully he will see sense and continue this wonderful journey Liverpool is on. Let’s all stop fretting about who will stay or go and just enjoy the ride. Happy new year in advance to all the Ed’s and all fellow reds.


 

 

19 Jul 2018 11:40:23
Danny Ward off to Leicester possibly for 12 million pounds?
Didn't see that one coming. Good fee for someone who barely played for us, but an exciting adventure for Wardy who will be 1st choice if Schmeichel goes to Chelsea.
Probably means Karius stays as backup to Alisson.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 19 Jul 2018 11:45:28
Good for him! I have felt sorry for him in recent years. All the best if this is true.


2.) 19 Jul 2018 11:48:57
schmiecal to chelski?


3.) 19 Jul 2018 12:00:00
12m!

behave.


4.) 19 Jul 2018 12:09:15
We're losing our number one goalkeeper to Leicester.

From being 3rd choice to being No.1 and now a possible transfer in a matter of few days. Things change fast in football.


5.) 19 Jul 2018 12:20:45
Sounds like Roma and Chelsea will be fighting it out for Kasper Schmeichel now.

A shame about Ward. Klopp really has messed him about and stifled his development. He should have been sent back on loan last year, after helping Hudderfield to the Premier league, but Klopp decided he needed to have 3 goalkeepers, because clearly two wasn't enough.

Not like Ward played very much, a very bad decision from Klopp in my opinion and another broken promise. He really does have a habit of this, which is a little worrying, because you can gain a reputation by acting like this.

I only hope the lad goes on to have a decent campaign in a new setting. I think Ward will turn out to be a decent buy by Leicester, and, fingers crossed, Liverpool's goalkeeping nightmare will be ended by the arrival of Alisson. Great keeper, little concerned by his habit of parrying the ball back into dangerous areas but that will hopefully be eliminated by some regular coaching.

Still, with or without a CAM coming in, what a team we have this season. Hopefully we can go and win a trophy because it has been so long since I have seen our side celebrate a cup final. This might be the season we do though, I will keep my fingers crossed.


6.) 19 Jul 2018 12:27:47
Just read that and was about to ask Ed if it's true. Would be a very good move for him.

So Tim Krul or Boaz Myhill for 3rd keeper?
Or bring back Cavalieri? :)

{Ed001's Note - I have been hinting about it for a couple of days.}


7.) 19 Jul 2018 12:37:35
Good luck to the lad. He deserves to be playing especially after Klopp has messed him around so much!


8.) 19 Jul 2018 12:55:30
Effectively Klopp added a couple of million to Danny Ward's value by "making him Liverpool's number 1" for a few days.

That's business.


9.) 19 Jul 2018 13:46:46
LFC-S+MANGO Roma apparently had an agreement with PSG for Alphonse Areola in place incase Alisson deal went through so looks like if Schmeichel is to move it would be to go to Chelski rather than replace Alisson.


10.) 19 Jul 2018 13:52:26
If we can get 15 million odd for migs that's 27 off alisson's fee already.

That leaves karius and garabara as back up.

Thats good business indeed.

Good luck to ward. I hope kasper leaves and he gets his chance to show what he can do in the prem.


11.) 19 Jul 2018 14:19:59
So did Klopp actually come out publicly announcing Ward as number one? Missed that interview. Any links, be an interesting watch.

Otherwise is everyone getting this Ward no.1 info from the same set of journos, twitter etc that I see always slammed down as utter bollox? Then becoming a super keyboard warrior ready and waiting to type ‘embarrassing’ as much as possible.


12.) 19 Jul 2018 14:39:17
Man, how bad is going from Courtois (spelling) to Schmeichel? Chelski getting ripped apart!

Hope Becker lives up to his price. I really wanted to see Ward in action at the big stage. Hope he gets his chance in the EPL!


13.) 19 Jul 2018 14:57:00
I know mcfurgen, I’d like to see this interview too. For all we know Klopp said Ward will be given the chance to fight for number 1 shirt. Which is fine. If Ward never wanted to play for Liverpool why did he sign a contract with us? Posters are always complaining that our young players don’t get their chances. Maybe Klopp brought him off loan and gave him a chance and he wasn’t good enough?


14.) 19 Jul 2018 15:20:05
Really disappointed that Ward is going. We should have kept him and given him a chance.
It should be Migs who we should sell on.
Ward is much younger and can still learn.
Migs has had plenty of chances under 2 managers and has rarely been up to the very top end of the Premier League.

For me this is a real bad move by the club and Klopp.

Migs should have been sold or even used as part exchange for AB. The Italian league would suit him much better and away from premier league spotlight.

Now let's see if we can change the goal keeping coaches!


15.) 19 Jul 2018 15:37:13
Explains why he wasn't in the squad against Bury.


16.) 19 Jul 2018 15:49:09
But what do you do if nobody wants to by mignolet?


17.) 19 Jul 2018 15:48:40
I don't understand what all the hue and cry about Klopp telling Ward he has the chance of being his Number 1, is all about (regardless of whether it is documented as true or not) . As manager, what is he supposed to do? Tell him that "listen you're stuck in the No. 2 or 3 position here for life"?

I've never managed a sports team in my life but I run businesses (with a whole bunch of employees) since 36 years. And the number 1 lesson I've learnt about getting performance out of, and retaining, employees, is to keep motivating them and keep showing them the next step up that is there for them to take. Aspiration to move up in life motivates everybody! And I'm sure it's like that in all team sports where squads of players are involved.

So what if Klopp told Ward "you have the chance to be my Number 1"? I don't see it is a lie. It's logical and motivational man-management. And Klopp seems to be a level headed and fair guy, when handing out starting jobs. Otherwise TAA and Robertson would not be where they are. Clyne got injured, TAA (and Gomez) took over and they were deemed good enough to keep their places, Clyne wasn't. Moreno started the season last year, until Robertson took over and showed he deserved to keep his place. And after Mignolet got demoted, if Karius had underperformed or gotten injured, Ward too would have gotten his shot, I'm sure of it. No need to demonize Klopp as some kind of promise-breaking ogre. (I agree that Ward should not have been in the team last year, because he is way better than a No.3, and should have been loaned out, but that's a different matter alltogether) .

{Ed002's Note - It is to do with him repeatedly saying things like this - he has done it over and over. He should simply shut up about it.}


18.) 19 Jul 2018 15:49:09
But what do you do if nobody wants to by mignolet?


19.) 19 Jul 2018 16:22:44
Surely the Belgian reserve keeper will be in demand, if the price is right. Those suggesting either Ward or Karius for our backup have not considered what a 25 year old player needs in their career.


20.) 19 Jul 2018 16:41:31
ArAy1969, I agree with every single word you have written. Excellent post.


21.) 19 Jul 2018 16:28:43
Yes Ed002, I've read before where you have stated that he should stop saying it. But do you mean not saying it out in the press or the public domain, or do you mean that he should stop saying it to players because he is lying and has no intention of ever trying to deliver what he is suggesting? Wanted your clarification, if you don't mind.

{Ed002's Note - He should stop saying any such things in the public domain. It makes him look rather stupid.}


22.) 19 Jul 2018 17:11:16
The problem is that Klopp has made promises to players many times before and has let them down on numerous occasions. If he keeps doing this then he will gain a reputation as a liar, something he and the club will not want. Players will be hesitant to join us if they learn of Klopp's tendancy to promise and never stay committed to those promises. Would you work for someone who had a tendancy to behave as Klopp has in this regard?

Listen, I love Klopp as much as the next Liverpool fan but I am not blind to his antics. Klopp has outdone expectations, a Champions League final was never expected last season, but there are areas he can improve. Hopefully that will come with time.

Either way, it has been a great transfer window, regardless if no one else comes, but I just hope we don't have more cases of Grujic's and Ward's, who have been let down by the manager.


23.) 19 Jul 2018 17:45:10
LFC-S Mango, do you not think it is possible that Klopp made conditional promises to players such as Grujic and Ward who have let themselves down by not performing in training, thereby foregoing the opportunity to feature in the first team? Just a thought.


24.) 19 Jul 2018 17:14:48
Okay Ed002, many thanks. 👍.


25.) 19 Jul 2018 20:01:07
Danny Ward will become a very decent goalkeeper, and we'll remember this day when many regarded his sale as a smart piece of business. He deserved his chance to stake a claim at Liverpool, but he didn't get it. I wish him the very best.


26.) 19 Jul 2018 22:32:31
I think ward will develop. But surely the fact that klopp still trusted migs and karious says how he has trained on.


 

 

28 Dec 2017 04:18:50
Apparently the club is looking at Butland or Alisson of Roma as potential GK recruitments. Alisson is really good from what I have seem of him in the UCL but on the other hand, Im really disappointed Karius or Ward may never get a fair crack at LFC. Really hoped Klopp would give Karius an extended run to see how he does as the talent is clearly there.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 28 Dec 2017 06:20:10
I really wish Ward could get his chance or atleast go out on loan.


2.) 28 Dec 2017 08:08:43
Butland is a great shout and I hope it comes off, he is a personal favourite and more realistic than a Donnaruma let's say, put Gomez next to Van Dijk and let them build a partnership/ triangle, Gomez is going to make some mistakes but he needs to learn and I hope he gets the chance to grow in that position.


3.) 28 Dec 2017 09:30:06
I am over the moon with the VVD signing as central defence has been a problem for us for a number of years. However goalkeeper has been an issue for even longer. If we were to bring in a top keeper (highly unlikely now) in Jan then I think it's a straight shoot out between us and Chlsea (expecting them to spend in Jan) for 2nd. If we continue with Mig then top 4 will be down to who can mess up the least (similar to last season when us, Arsenal and Utd made it look they were trying their best to throw it away every time they had the opportunity) . For me just putting Ward in goal would increase those chances of gaining automatic CL qualification for next season.

{Ed025's Note - liverpool are the second best side in the league jayden and with the signing of VVD and keita i fully expect them to challenge for the title next season if they bring in a decent cat..


4.) 28 Dec 2017 09:26:06
Apparently trapp is of interest aswell have you heard out ed?

{Ed025's Note - he has been mentioned adam but thats about it at the moment mate..


5.) 28 Dec 2017 10:27:50
Thanks ed.

{Ed025's Note - no worries mate..


6.) 28 Dec 2017 10:48:08
If we were to sign Trapp after the VVD signing then there is a genuine chance that we can challenge for the Champions league this year. Our attack would frighten anyone in the competition and with a potential back line of Trapp Clyne Gomez/ Matip VVD and Robertson we could have a chance to keep most teams out at the other end. Albeit I do not know whether Trapp is cup tied.


7.) 28 Dec 2017 12:58:44
I can't say I've watched Trapp but reputationally he didn't sound like a top class keeper. I'd prefer we do what we did with VVD, identify the best possible guy and pay what's needed for him.

{Ed002's Note - Getting the money from where?}


8.) 28 Dec 2017 13:32:49
Sorry ed, I'm assuming we'll have the money to make at least one major signing this summer, I'd use it on a goalkeeper.

{Ed002's Note - and what about FFP and the wages? Liverpool need to be fiscally responsible and will continue to spend but that spending cannot simply be “what is needed”.}


9.) 28 Dec 2017 13:35:35
Coutinho of course ed002. Money has to come from somewhere.


10.) 28 Dec 2017 13:43:26
We are continually told Coutinho wants out. If or when he is sold the transfer fee will eclipse the VVD signing. Thus putting us well within FFP.

{Ed002's Note - It really doesn’t work quite like that.}


11.) 28 Dec 2017 15:25:44
Not a fan of Butland too many injuries and I don’t think he holds that much ability. I’ve not watched much of Trapp, Oblak would be a no go but I’d be cheeky and try for Donnarumma, the fans dislike him they think he’s bleeding the club dry, he doesn’t seem to be happy there, Real Madrid have other targets, no other top teams seem to be desperate for a goalkeeper? Worth a shot.

{Ed001's Note - he wants to leave but his manager is the same man as Balotelli so I am not sure it would be a realistic option, sadly.}


12.) 28 Dec 2017 15:07:06
Ed2, this raises the question, are we sailing close to the wind on FFP?

{Ed002's Note - It will be clearer in February when the accounts come but on wages yes.}


13.) 28 Dec 2017 15:08:48
The financial fair play I know little about so just a question to Ed2 if I may (apologies for lack of knowledge) but is the FFP a seasonal thing? does it go on what we earn? so for example, if Manchester City went and won the Premier League and Champions league which would obviously bring in more revenue, would they have more to spend on players/ wages? Hope that makes sense, I have never quite understood how it works.

{Ed002's Note - It is based on what clubs earn but not all earnings and expenditure are releavant - and it is a three year rolling period.}


14.) 28 Dec 2017 15:38:18
How are city and psg able to spend what they like with ffp, I thought it was same for all and not only if you've rich owners.

{Ed002's Note - They can't spend what they like - they have to abide by the rules.}


15.) 28 Dec 2017 17:31:20
Interesting thanks Ed2.


16.) 28 Dec 2017 22:03:53
From memory its at least partially based on your revenue. As in the more money you make, the more you can spend. So if say we were to get a whacking great shirt deal from Adidas then we could spend more in the market under FFP. Is this correct Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Not really.}

I still stand by my opinion that a new top quality forward is desperately needed. We are not winning the league this season unless that happens.
We just need to accept the fact that Mane and Bobby have dropped down a tier in terms of the players that they are, and simply Jota is not going to be enough.
Perfectly happy with our defense and midfield, but our attack over the next 2 seasons is going to need serious freshening up.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 29 Aug 2021 08:56:03
couldnt agree more. Salah's 20 won't be enough to win the league this year without others contributing 10-15. He wasnt great yesterday either. Alonso was there for the taking and that right foored shot from inside the box :-0 . We need someone who can score goals from anywhere in the box and also take shots outside of it. It's the missing piece of the team. Good news is Trent looks amazing and the defence will only get better with VVD getting game time and sharpness back. I'd have Gomez over Matip but hey ho. Thought Fab looked poor yesteray and was poor at the end of last season. Slow on the ball, bad control, not really breaking up attacks like he used to, lucky not to be booked a few times. I thought Klop should have trusted Ox of Keita at 60 mins yesterday as we needed someone who could break through their back 9. It's going to be an interesting season.


2.) 29 Aug 2021 09:21:30
another midfielder and striker, not being greedy, quality and strength in depth will be vital, one or two players not looking what they were.


3.) 29 Aug 2021 09:26:12
I think everyone is overreacting to one result against one of the world's best teams. Our forwards didn't have proper service in the second half, people want to especially criticise Mane but there was absolutely nothing going on down that left hand channel and you can't expect Mane to pull something out of his ass against a defensive set up like that.

I don't think benching Thiago was a bad idea as it gave us a midfield option to bring on in the second half, but he was also brought on too late.

Could anyone honestly say with any confidence that City would've bagged a win from those same circumstances? Because based on their last few games against Chelsea, I doubt it.


4.) 29 Aug 2021 09:26:18
Jota can easily get up to 20 goals this season, I don't get why people are knocking Mane he was very good yesterday, he was one if the main reasons we got back into the game, Bobby looked very good yesterday as well, maybe one more option would be nice but its who.


5.) 29 Aug 2021 09:29:43
Draw against Chelsea and all of a sudden we need to replace the front 3 rught now.
Overreact much guys?

{Ed025's Note - absolutely flash..


6.) 29 Aug 2021 09:57:40
Rainbow Jeremy - City would have won that game yesterday, I have absolutely no doubt about that. As good as Liverpool are, no team is as effective against 10 men as Man City. Liverpool are easily a match for Man City, but we don’t have their level of technical security in midfield and attack; our players rely far more on a mixture of technical security and elite athleticism.
I’m not actually that concerned by yesterday’s result. We weren’t great but Chelsea are still on cloud nine from the end of last season and are using a system with a shelf life but one that is yet to be entirely worked out.
I am bothered by our amateurish finishing, however. Someone needs to correct how profligate we are in front of goal. In the last moments of the match, Salah hit the most pathetic shot I think I’ve ever seen at this level, pea-rolling it straight into the grateful goalkeeper’s arms.


7.) 29 Aug 2021 10:14:23
I said it in pre season. There will be a lot of 1-1 draws at home this season. What we saw yesterday was a team on the decline, and a team on the up. We created nothing at Anfield against 10 men, we need a goal scoring center forward to latch onto some of these crosses.


8.) 29 Aug 2021 10:41:59
LoweLFC, you literally have no evidence to prove any of what you posted regarding City. In fact, we have evidence to the contrary. City couldn’t break Chelsea down in 3 tries including the CL final last season so there is your first point out the window.

Also, you say that City would have won that game vs 10 men as they are the best vs 10 men, yeah. You mean like they did vs Leeds last season where they played at home vs a 10 man Leeds team and LOST? Yeah, exactly 🙄.

Apart from that, I agree with you that we need to be better in front of goal and I felt for Salah cis that was a golden chance that had it fell on his left foot then, we win the game. Also, Hendo’s belter had if not taken a slight deflection was flying in and Mendy was nowhere near it. In the end, we did not okay well enuff to win so we take the point.


9.) 29 Aug 2021 11:07:10
Prove City would've won that game yesterday. Video evidence only. Quickly now.

Bissouma rumors are heating up now. We may offer up Phillips or Origi plus 30mil pounds to Brighton.
Would be a good signing. But we still need a forward as well. One injury to either of our front 4 and we are in trouble.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 27 Aug 2021 07:05:17
Mane and Salah as a front 2 would do frustrate fine. Never mind any 3 of them.


2.) 27 Aug 2021 07:05:21
I think one injury to one of our front 4 and we will still have 3 buzzer we have ox and elliot who can cover up there. Bissouma above an attacker for me definitely.


3.) 27 Aug 2021 07:10:02
If its a choice between a forward and midfielder, I am choosing a forward all day long. Elliot and Jones need ample game time in the middle of the pitch to develop and I expect Naby to have a good season.
I am not convinced Taki, Divock or Ox are up to the mark in the forward line. I'd definitely get another forward in. No idea who though.


4.) 27 Aug 2021 07:34:41
Where is the Brighton rumours page where 1 of the Ed's will give an update on Bissouma? 🤪
The suspense is killing me 🥴.


5.) 27 Aug 2021 07:41:16
To get Bissouma just do it. For what we need I take him over Saul. The lad is class and doesn’t need time to adjust to the league. Also we don’t want to look back when he is playing for an elite club thinking of what might of been. We also have to think if we get injuries to both Fab and Hendo that would mean, putting Milner or Thiago in Fab role which as we have seen is not their favoured position of strength. Bissouma on the other hand can play the Fab and Hendo role/ position so for me if there is an opportunity and it means chucking in Phillips and Origi you do it and you do it now before his value sky rockets.


6.) 27 Aug 2021 07:55:27
I agree Alonso. But we couldn’t afford him last week, so what’s changed? Brighton don’t want to sell, they also don’t need the money. We are not the lads first choice and we don’t have a pot to pee in.


7.) 27 Aug 2021 08:40:15
We will find a way if we want him. always do. I'm hoping we sign him lads. I'd take over a forward I reckon. He will be one of those signings that makes a huge difference.


8.) 27 Aug 2021 08:44:03
To be fair though Mark, apart from the fact

- Brighton don’t need the money,

- we haven’t got the money and

- we aren’t the players choice of destination

I think it sounds like the signing is a certainty ….


9.) 27 Aug 2021 08:46:41
I’m sure Brighton were looking at Nat Phillips…. Give them Nat and Origi plus 20m and they will surely go for that. they could do with a striker surely… we’ve just got to hope Origi and Nat would want to go there 🥴.

I agree entirely Markp08. Has something changed Ed002 with the situation?

{Ed002's Note - There has been no offer from Liverpool.}


11.) 27 Aug 2021 09:06:20
If getting Bissouma meant that we had to go into the season a bit light up front i’d 100% take it. Bissouma for me isn’t just a good potential signing, he’s an absolute necessity. He’s perfect for what Klopp wants from a midfielder and is outstanding by every possible metric. Age, adaptability, premier league experience, attitude, offensive play, defensive play, pressing, height, the lad has it all. He’s a far superior and more well rounded player than the likes of Keita, Ox and Wijnaldum ever were. If we don’t strengthen now then our midfield will likely need 2 players next summer and whoever we get won’t be as ideal as this guy. On the other hand while we do need a forward i think we’d all concede there aren’t really any outstanding targets you’d say we HAVE to go out and get. I really like the look of Bowen and think he’d do well for us but there could equally be a lot of better targets available next summer with a higher ceiling. Time to start thinking about the next evolution of this Liverpool side and i just know that Bissouma should be an essential part of that.

When we lost Van Dijk to a season ending injury, we went from being title favorites to tile challengers.
When we lost Gomez to a season ending injury, we went from being title challengers to a guaranteed 2nd place finish.
When Matip failed to stay fit and we moved our best CDM to CB, we fell into a race for 2nd place.
When some of our key players like TAA, Jota, Alisson, Thiago and Fabinho spent or are still spending over a month on the treatment table, we fell into a race for top4.

Like it or not, injuries have ripped the spine of our team apart. We have lost all our first choice CBs, have moved our most influential CMs into defense. Without a proper defensive line and our midfield missing its generals, this situation LFC finds itself in was a long time coming. No coach or owner in the game could have foreseen or planned for this.
We will get top4, maybe even win the UCL (considering all the major teams are having relatively poor seasons like us) . That sill salvages the season to a major extent and then we can assess the situation in the summer to have a more competitive, healthier and fitter squad to challenge again next season.

I agree Buzzer, total sense in what you said.

As big as a loss vvd was I feel so is jota as out forwards just look flat and have for a while.

He made a big difference at the start of the season.


2.) 04 Feb 2021 11:12:04
we've lost defenders but this has impacted our midfield too. i would of preferred to play our defenders (yes the likes of R Williams and Phillips) in defence instead of midfielders. hindsight says it couldn't of been any worse than it is. am sure klopp knows better than me.


3.) 04 Feb 2021 11:23:29
Playing Rhys Williams in our current state would actually be unfair on him. The kid is simply not ready to be anywhere near the first team.


4.) 04 Feb 2021 11:51:01
Sukhyrai, throwing Williams and Philips under the bus just to keep the midfield intact is not the solution either. Neither is ready to be playing at this level week in week out. There is simply no solution to our current predicament.
All Klopp and the players can do is take each game at a time and stop worrying about the bigger picture. As long as the players we have available stay motivated and fit, we should have enough to at least qualify next season's UCL as a bare minimum.


5.) 04 Feb 2021 12:47:57
Sukhyrai - it could definitely have been worse than it is. We could have lost to Fulham, Brighton (first time), Newcastle, West Brom and United, and drawn or lost against Sheff Utd and West Ham. Just one (more) goal conceded in any of those matches would have changed the result. I get the sentiment about wanting to have Fabinho and Henderson back in midfield but I really don't think it was a credible option to play Williams and Phillips together at the back.

Now we have Kabak and Davies in, it could be more feasible. We could try either of them alongside Phillips, or we could try them alongside each other, and then get Fabinho and Henderson back in midfield.

Personally I think Phillips is in possession of one of the centre half positions. Ok, maybe he could have got the clearance in for the Brighton goal last night but generally I thought he played quite well.


6.) 04 Feb 2021 13:52:08
Brilliant post, IB. There is no doubt that the injuries have taken a mental toll on the players. I mean, what team do you know about that can have ALL it's senior CB's out and still challenge or in this case defend their crown. None, that's who so we need to admit that. It is not an excuse. It is reality.

Frankly, it is a small miracle we are where we are with all the gaps we are plugging on a game by game basis yet the leaks still happening and the boys and manager seem fed up mentally which is affecting them in decision making (pitch play and team selection and tactics) . Let this season be over with so we can regroup. On to City, I guess.


7.) 04 Feb 2021 14:20:26
I don’t buy it personally, I know injuries have impacted our season but I think it’s a lot of excuse making as it shouldn’t effect us to this extent. Look at who injuries have costed us against, lesser teams that have a low block, whilst beating all the good teams bar a couple of draws that weren’t actually bad results given context. You lose to Burnley, Brighton draw against the likes of Fulham, West Brom etc and blame injuries? With or without injuries we should be beating these teams. We actually had pretty positive results until the West Brom game in which we had jota, Gomez, vvd and matip all out during that period. You don’t think it’s a mentality shift rather than, we can’t play our best players, so we beat the good teams but lose to the lesser teams, that makes a lot of sense doesn’t it.

Some people needed a reality check during the final part of last season, it was clear we relied heavily on individual talent to get us through tight games as people were working out our system in which we went through our fullbacks a lot rather than through our midfield that has a tough time creating, so our creative outlet was our fullbacks, which teams would eventually work out how to stifle. It was clear that the same set of players would struggle the season after, 2+ years of playing at that level would always naturally do that, especially when we have a system manager that focuses purely on us and not preparing for certain opposition (not having a go at klopp in just saying these types of approaches are what can lead to bad runs when you aren’t changing anything) . We brought in Thiago to be a creative outlet in midfield and it hasn’t worked out that way, so we rely heavily on individual talent up front, and all bar salah have dried up massively. That tells me a lot needs to happen in the summer, but unfortunately we’re in no position to do so financially unless we sell, which I think we have to do at this stage. Players aren’t as motivated and in turn, this could make klopp disillusioned on how a rebuild would work out, so would it suprise anyone if he was to leave this summer or next, I would predict next summer if things don’t go his way. The players that aren’t as hungry need to be moved on, some would bring in decent fees but it’s all dependent on how C.V. has effected other clubs financially.

All I’m saying is, this is way deeper than injuries, the cracks were there to see at the end of last season, our summer recruitment was good bar bringing in a CB that costed us massively in the end. But there’s little excuse for the lack of hunger the forward line has demonstrated. I got called an idiot for stating that the same set of players would struggle next season and that top 4 would be the best we would achieve and that’s exactly what is happening. People are overstating how bad the injuries have resulted in our poor results, for me it’s a combination of bad preparation for certain opposition, questionable in game management, and lack of hunger from the players. It’s no way in critical condition, it’s just far from being a title winning side or even one that would challenge, it’s a top 4 recipe at best. This is what we have to accept at the moment and see if klopp grows as a manager and realises certain things or the cracks continue to appear with him and the squad. People were quick to say the same things about pep, now it’s klopp turn. Pep has solved certain problems, can klopp do the same.

Keita out injured again!
At this point, enough is enough. Really difficult to say if the player is unable to cope with Klopp's training regime or its the result of poor personal lifestyle, but its time to cut our losses now. Naby has not exactly pulled up any trees when fit anyways, so doubt he'd be a big loss anyaways.
In an ideal world, we sell him and Origi in January and sign a CB.

Keita has had more than enough opportunities, it’s time to admit he was a mistake and shift him on. He lacks the work ethic and professionalism to make it.

{Ed0666's Note - there’s a fine line between confidence and arrogance Indian but if we get a defender in January I think we could win not only the premiership, champions league and the General election.

Don’t forget we have lost to Villa and drawn to Brighton and Fulham. Don’t get too carried away but the table tomorrow will look great if we can get past the fleet.

I like the way you put that Ed, agree with Indian in the sense that its ours to lose.

{Ed0666's Note - were getting players back at the right time fresh legs are everything now. We get a decent center back I can’t see us losing the title. Call it arrogance I don’t care it’s my sentiments.


4.) 26 Dec 2020 19:04:09
Ed0666, if we lose out on the league to these shambolic teams, I will blame Klopp for that. This is pure confidence that we will win the league, not arrogance coz Klopp ain't no flop.

{Ed0666's Note - rubbish if we lose the title Klopp is not to blame. The pandemic will.

6.) 26 Dec 2020 23:02:38
Agree w you IB and 666. It’s ours to lose. We keep out focus, consistency and levels, we win it hands down.
We go into games believing we’ve the divine right to 3 pts w/ o a fight, we’ll regret later because it we’ve been up for all games, there’s no stopping us.

It’s entirely up to us this season.


7.) 27 Dec 2020 04:24:01
There’s a way to go yet, and in a year like this we can potentially still lose players to injury or quarantine, so this is far, far from over.

I believe we’ll do it though, so long as we don’t lose another CB to injury.


8.) 27 Dec 2020 05:40:22
We are winning this league. Anything less than that is not good enough. This LFC team is too good to stop with just one UCL and league title. While I get that C.V. could cause havoc yet again, we are still good enough to smash the pretenders to the throne. We have Klopp (best manager in world football), the pretenders don't.


9.) 27 Dec 2020 08:36:13
IB, who says anything will stop if we don’t win the league this season? Chill out and calm down with the bullish rhetoric cos that has no impact on reality. We are only good enuff IF we prove it on the pitch week in, week out. Period, end of story.

It is very possible that we don’t win the league and if we don’t, there will b a review as to what went wrong and that is that. Nothing more n nothing less. All that bullish talk is just that, talk. Talk don’t win squat. Stay focused on one game at a time and if we do that and handle our business then, things should work out the way we all want. Happy Holidays!

I do think Mane will leave next summer. Once Salah gets his bumper contract, I don't think the club will have the stomach to give Mane a huge contract as well. Also, he might be the only major saleable asset out of the players who have not signed new contracts (once Salah signs his) . Bobby i think will sign a contract extension on lower wages and we will bring in 2 new forwards to replace Mane, Origi and Minamino next summer.

WhyOwhy, what if Bobby or Jota are injured when Salah and Mane go off to AFCON? Klopp' team selections over the last two seasons show he does not have much faith in Taki or Origi (who can't even make our second 11 in the preseason friendlies) .
SO what's changed all of a sudden that makes them the answer to our depth issues up front?
Also, why have u changed the formation? Klopp will never go 3 at the back and he certainly won't play 4-4-2.
2 games is 6 points, and with the competition in front of us, EVERY POINT MATTERS.
