Does anyone know how ejaria is doing, how close is he to getting in the squad again. And is woodburn still too small to cut it?

Its a coming

1.) 30 Jan 2018 10:55:30
Ejaria is really impressing, as is Woodburn. They're the stand out players in the u23 team (along with the now injured Brewster) by far this season. They work off each other brilliantly as well in attacking midfield. Watch out for Adam Lewis though. Made his u23 debut a couple of days ago and much is expected of him over the next 6-18 months.

Ejaria really should be making the bench though. He turns 21 this year and we have more to gain from playing him for 10 minutes here and there, than from giving Milner those minutes. Woodburn isn't too small, he's just young. After the furore around his goal against Leeds, it is important we make sure he stays grounded. Last thing we want is another teenager who thinks he's a big time Charlie (ie, Sterling) .

{Ed001's Note - Milner gets on the bench because he can cover multiple positions, both in midfield and defence. Ejaria can't do that, so it then limits the options available if there are injuries.}

2.) 30 Jan 2018 13:51:42
Ejaria can cover DM, CM, AM and LM though Ed. No denying he can't play RB or LB like Milner can, but although Milner may be able to play in multiple positions, he can't play any of them (except maybe RM) to a Premier League standard.

Why not use Arnold off the bench in place of Milner? He can play every position Milner can play, and to a better standard. Yet for some reason, Klopp always turns to Milner 😣 Arnold even takes penalties and set pieces better than Milner does!

{Ed001's Note - not from what I have seen of him he can't. He does not look to have the ability to play anywhere but central midfield for me, well attacking mid.}

3.) 30 Jan 2018 14:15:46
That is definitely where he is best Ed. He looked a little bit lacking in terms of discipline when i saw him play a holding role. No more so than James Milner though! Looks like he's going on loan anyway so I hope he has a good 4 months at Sunderland!



10 Jan 2018 00:50:51
Im para phrasing here but danny murphy has basically said that keita is another jordan henderson and adds no creativity or power as he puts it to midfield.

I have limited experience of keita but from what i have seen he is nothing like henderson, my question really is what exactly will keita bring to the team and is murphy correct in his assessment.

Its a coming

1.) 10 Jan 2018 01:09:12
Danny Murphy is far from the brightest, to be honest. It is clear that he has never actually seen Keita play before because Henderson and Keita have very different styles.

Henderson is about breaking up play, pressing with regularity whether it is the 5th minute or 90th. He is also a decent passer of the ball, although I do agree that often his passes go backwards or sideways (Usually due to a lack of options but at times he does seem to hesitate on the ball and by then the chance to play the ball has gone. )

Keita is very capable on the ball, from what I have seen dribbling whether in tight spaces or open ones are his main strength. Keita is a difficult player to get off the ball, he can wriggle away from mounting pressure and use his pace to leave you in the dirt. He is hard working too, but from what I have seen his passing is lacking. He tends to play the short or simple pass, he never looks to play long passes or creative ones unless he has no other options, and, when he does, the pass is often overhit. I have watched a fair bit of German football and these are just a few things I have noticed. Keita is a very good player with the potential to be a main stay in the team for years to come. However, there are areas of his game he needs to work on and, with Klopp at the helm, I suspect you will see improvements over time.

Oh, also, as has become apparent this season, Keita seems to have lost his more competitive edge in matches. He does not resemble the man of last season who had a very serious case for being one of the top players in Germany. This year Keita looks disinterested, doesn't put a great deal of effort when tracking back to his position. I suspect this is because his head is already at Liverpool and he does not want to be in RBL. Not the best mentality but it is just my suspicion and not actual fact.

I hope this helps, I am lucky to watch a fair bit of German football and thought I would share my opinion on the two. As I said, Keita and Henderson are nothing alike and Danny Murphy needs to actually do his homework rather than spout absolute nonsense.

2.) 10 Jan 2018 01:17:24
Murphy is talking absolute bollocks. Keita will be the main "driver" of our midfield, picking up the ball from deep. He will be relied upon to be our main creative outlet from midfield whilst also contributing to defence, pressing of opposition etc. Keita is very very talented with an energy that perhaps can match that of Ngolo Kante. Ignore Murphy, he is the complete opposite to what Henderson has sadly become for us, Keita is a dynamo with the ability to play incisive one touch football or score from 30+ yards. Keita will be, and already is to some extent, special.

3.) 10 Jan 2018 01:34:27
He is the engine that drives the machine much like Kante.

4.) 10 Jan 2018 01:58:10
Are u serius lad? U listen to that AH? He's worse than Trump

U can find analysis of Keita's game on Youtube. There's one worth watching. After reading and watching several analysis I can conclude that he's the player we are missing in our midfield. He has a great engine, can carry the ball, likes to dribble and waltz through the midfield and if there's no better option he continues and attacks the defence, makes space for a shot and usually ends up scoring from the edge of the box. It doesn't work everytime as u can imagine.

He uses his dribbling quality and speed to that (little bit like Mane but better in terms of dribbling) . The other thing he does frequently is through balls, he always tries them and more often than not succeeds (prefers short passes so can't judge him on long passes) . He also intercepts very well as he has the ability to read the plays and also uses his speed to do that. Tackles when needed but can be reckless at times (like Dele Ali) . Not sure if I can judge his defensive work like getting back in time during opposition attacks, defending set pieces, following instructions.

Anyway, he's not a CDM neither an AM. He's really box to box with creativity, assists and goals in him. So, he's exactly the player we are missing in midfield as Can, Henderson and Gini aren't good enough or have zero creativity against EUROLINES/

Hope that helps.

5.) 10 Jan 2018 03:09:20
Danny never was the brightest.

6.) 10 Jan 2018 03:22:10
The only assessment here to be made is of Danny Murphy's mental state. Even a YouTube highlight reel will show Keita is nothing like Henderson in style of play. Keita is pacy, energetic and drives the ball from midfield to attack in no time at all. He is everything Hendo should have been.

7.) 10 Jan 2018 03:28:05
Murphy is a pundit who used to play football but has little to no knowledge of the game as a whole and who is paid to make statements that stir debate - take his guff with a pinch of salt.

8.) 10 Jan 2018 08:43:14
Thanks lads, i suspected he was sprouting for click bait. I too think keita can be something special with the right guidance. Not quite a gerrard replacement but gerrardesque in terms of box to box ability. Hopefully he regains his drive when he joins in the summer.

9.) 10 Jan 2018 08:48:26
I'm not an expert on football. I don't know how anywhere near as much as most people. But one thing I can tell you for certain - Danny Murphy as a pundit is a waste of oxygen, a man who spouts pseudo-controversial nonsense because he knows it will get him and his publications mentions and that he has absolutely nothing of greater value to add.

10.) 10 Jan 2018 09:16:10
My God listen to you all. He had an opinion and its the wrong one, but he's a good pundit, is actually very sharp and knowledgable, and had a cracking career here, we cluld definitely do with him now as he's twice the player can is. Show a little respect.

11.) 10 Jan 2018 09:58:05
Murphy clearly doesn’t watch any football outside of the premier league.

12.) 10 Jan 2018 11:08:08
"Keita isn't as creative as Mascherano"
"Keita is like Henderson"
"Liverpool need a 20+ goal striker" (ignores Salah's 17 goal tally)

He has lost the plot.

13.) 10 Jan 2018 11:10:16
ChampMan it's not just one bad opinion but three, and they are all baffling.

14.) 10 Jan 2018 12:25:25
From what I've seen which is admittedly limited, he's been nothing special to watch, being rather badly disciplined and hasn't shone in their team. That is purely what i've seen of the 5 or 6 games I've tuned into.

Is he actually as good as everyone on here seems to think? Honest question as I haven't watched him week in week out. Anyone on here watch the Bundesliga regularly?

15.) 10 Jan 2018 15:01:04
DeanW, I can gurantee you that Keita is special. He is much better than our current midfield options. Keita had the likes of Barca, Arsenal, Bayern all interested in his signature. Whilst this season he has been rash and not quite hit the performances of last year (which was a very high bar anyway) he is still young, cleanly doesn't want to be at Leipzig (which is not an excuse) and to be honest still has put in some great games this season. In short, I wouldn't worry.

{Ed025's Note - hes quality mate..

16.) 10 Jan 2018 15:29:23
Nice! Thanks for the reply tsteen!



24 Apr 2017 10:54:08
With the papers now saying real will target coutinho to replace modric how likely are we to keep hold of him this summer especially with Barcelona also waiting in the wings.

I doubt he will stay especially if we miss out on top 4 which is a real possibility if the players do not wake up and smell the opportunity in front of them. They should be super focussed and switched on at this stage of the season considering the prize at the end of it.

No doubt you are all as frustrated as me at the result yesterday but realistically what could klopp have done about it. Aside from those that started who else could he have brought in aside from the kids.

The only thing i could queation is If either of our centre backs were not 100% he maybe should have considered Gomez instead of playing injured defenders. But if you go out on the field you are able to play to even that's not an excuse.

Its a coming

1.) 24 Apr 2017 12:39:15
The 'papers' and you clearly haven't seen Modric or Real play for some time. He hasn't played as an attacking midfielder or a winger, the two areas Coutinho plays, since 2010. If Real want him, he'd be replacing James Rodriguez, Bale or Isco - not Modric.

2.) 24 Apr 2017 15:20:16
Well if they are selling and modric and replacing him with coutinho then maybe there happy with casmerio and kross in the centre and will add a new number 10.

Or thag coutinho could play alsongside one of them like everyone on here has suggested. (Playing in our cm)

{Ed002's Note - People need to get out of the mindset of like-for-like replacements.}

I have a genuine question for ed 25, i was watching a documentary on YouTube which oddly claimed pele was overated because he scored a large proportion of his goals in exhibition matches and apparently there were no decent defenders in his time. He odly went on to say he was instrumental in changing the game and was the grandfather of football?

Anyway, do you agree with that assertion? and as an aside, he also mentioned there were no red and yellow cards up until the late sixties. So how were bad challenges and clear penalties etc punished?

If pele was playing for years without that protection doesn't that make his achievements that much more impressive and NOT overated?

I was going to ask ed01 and feel free to answer if you want but I realised ed25 was 150yrs old so more appropriate 😀.

Its a coming

{Ed025's Note - pele was the best player ever of that there is no doubt, players were booked and sent off without any cards shown bookings being the players name put in a book by the ref, but rash challenges were just part and parcel of the game and players like tommy smith and jimmy case used to basically assault opponents without much retribution, i am quite old IAC but still a babe magnet in woolton mate.. :)

1.) 11 Jul 2019 09:40:21
I was 10 years old in 66 and it was the first time I saw Pele. He already had the tag as the best player in the world aged 26. He certainly looked good to me however GOAT is subjective. I have seen some amazing players over the years and Cruyff stood out to me for a long time until I watched Ronaldinho then Messi. Dalglish also stood out as did Frank Worthington and Stan Bowles. George Best, Tefilio Cubicles, George Hadji, Michel Platini, Roberto Baggio, Kaka, Figo, Zidane. Most of the above could be named GOAT. Best Premier League player Ryan Giggs. Best Liverpool Premier league player? Stevie G. of course.

2.) 11 Jul 2019 13:40:02
You should look up an Argentinian bloke who played in the 80s, Langland. His name was Diego something or other. I reckon he might pip Frank Worthington on your list of Top Players That Are Nearly As Good As Maradona.

3.) 11 Jul 2019 11:08:31
Thanks ed, much appreciated, I'm sure you are quite the catch down at the retirement village. 😂.

07 May 2019 22:06:58
Fudging love it, it really pissed me off when that muppet Ferdinand at the beginning of the game saying Barcelona are the best team left in the competition. And in your face to lineker, loved watching him swallow it tonight, especially after that celebration.

Greater satisfaction when we win it the hard way, although its not good for my health 😂 believe folks its a coming.

Being an LFC fan is not for the emotionally weak nor the for the faint-hearted. it takes balls to support your team who are trying very hard to win while at the same time, knowing they can lose. I'm up for it till the end cos well, What else am I going to do? Support Everton?



25 Jan 2019 09:30:47
I have to say I am really gutted we won't be seeing Brewster this season, he was on schedule but he must have had a setback. He has a lot of potential but I worry he may not recover the confidence after this long layoff and setback.

With Sturridge seemingly seeing out time and origi being a big drop off to fill in for the front 3, Breester.

Its a coming

1.) 25 Jan 2019 09:43:46
Sorry premature button hitting, I was going on to say, Brewster could have a similar impact as TAA had when he came in for Clyne. Imo he has as much talent as Jayden Sanchez.

2.) 25 Jan 2019 12:00:18
Jayden Sanchez?

3.) 25 Jan 2019 12:39:52
I think they mean Jadon Sancho. You know the young ex Manchester City youth making his way in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund and making waves doing so.

4.) 25 Jan 2019 13:00:24
I would take whatever most managers say with a pinch of salt when it comes to injuries. I think if we needed him due to injuries/ form with Sturridge/ Origi then we could see him pop on to the bench. At the moment I think they will just be looking to get him as fit as possible without having the pressure of being in the squad.

5.) 25 Jan 2019 15:33:07
If there's one think brewster isn't lacking its confidence. He said a while back obviously before his setback that he will have 85 rated shooting on the next fifa game after he got back and tore up the Premier league 🙄 let's hope he's the player he was when he comes back and let's hope he can translate it into adult football where so far he's achieved absolutely nothing.

6.) 25 Jan 2019 16:51:34
I don't think the plan ever was to see Brewster this season as there are to many players in his way.
However with the expected exodus in the summer as long as Brewster is back in time for Pre season I expect to see Klopp give him his chance over the summer and in a supporting role in 19/ 20.

7.) 25 Jan 2019 18:59:23
Spot on, 23carragold. Brewster was not really going to be playing this season and neither was Ox cos the club already announced that they would be due back next season. Ox may have a chance BUT not Brewster. I don't see where the OP thinks he would have been as good as TAA was when he joined the first team, really. TAA was already getting it done with the second team Klopp put out in the EFL cup in 16/ 17, something Brewster would have needed to do as well this season. Regarding whether he can recover from his injury fully, we will have to see how he deals with the situation mentally as that is the most difficult part of the recovery process esp. from an injury as serious as this one. Same goes for Ox. We shall see.



05 Sep 2018 16:12:35
Quick question for everyone, now that the season has started, has anyone revised their assessment of where they think we will finish considering the way we have been playing and despite of the maximum points.

Having read that Neymar thinks we will finish outside the top four, i reflected and still believe we will win the prem. With city, chelsea and spurs close behind.

We always make a sluggish start under klopp while the players find fitness then it just clicks into place. Usually though we suffer a few draws and losses during that period but somehow we are coming out with the wins.

I am optimistic! Thoughts?

Its a coming

1.) 05 Sep 2018 16:52:42
Neymar is entitled to his opinion. And most of us know what to make of a player who, despite being supremely skilled, chooses to be a cheat, a faker, and a certified money-chaser, to boot.

LFC is still on course. There'll be dips and off days, but we're the team everyone is looking up at. Unlike previous seasons where we came close and were depending on others stumbling, the sense I get this season is that it is all in our hands and in our control. In the end, it will be a matter of how much the team wants it, over the 38 games.

2.) 05 Sep 2018 16:53:42
I certainly think we have a squad and depth capable of winning the league but there’s no point commenting on where we will finish because we are 4 games in.
Based on present performance, I think our team needs more time to gel. But, 4 wins in 4 gives me fantastic optimism - especially knowing that we are not firing all cylinders yet. YNWA.

3.) 05 Sep 2018 17:10:38
I initially thought that Arsenal and Chelsea would battle it out for 4th. I've changed a bit. I still think 1st will come down to the final weeks between us and Man City. Spurs in 3rd and Chelsea in 4th.

4.) 05 Sep 2018 17:39:38
I backed them to win the premiership @4/ 1 So I think that gets my vote.

5.) 05 Sep 2018 18:05:38
I originally thought we’d finish second behind City and right now I’m sticking with that. Obviously I’m delighted that we’ve won 4 out of 4 including at 2 of the toughest away grounds in the league but I still see City as favourites right now.

6.) 05 Sep 2018 18:41:26
Either Neymar knows something we don’t after three games or the guy has suffered brain damage whilst spending most of the World Cup on the floor, rolling around, bashing brain cells again his skull.

I suspect it’s very much the latter.

7.) 05 Sep 2018 18:43:49
What was the context of neymars comment? I'm assuming he didn't just randomly say we'd finish out the top 4? I assume he was asked about the CL draw but can someone please add did he give any reasons or who he thought would finish top 4?

8.) 05 Sep 2018 18:52:26
his comments had a touch of fear in there. I like it.

9.) 05 Sep 2018 23:06:56
This is the same Neymar who left Barcelona to join psg so he could come out of Messi's shadow and get world player of the year. That fellow is a clown and even that's insulting clowns.

10.) 06 Sep 2018 10:04:03
What else would he have said- Oh its liverpool they will win the league and i am already shivering in my pants on the prospects of facing TAA or robbo. Cuz i know they will keep me in their pockets. and oh the fatality i will get if i even dare perform the neymar roll at anfield. i'd be massacred. I dredd going to anfield on a european night. i hope they don't destroy me. PSG my rolling on the turf arse am already a Madrista in my heart but i fear they might pick mbappe over me and i might get stuck at PSG, oooh i am so jealous of that kid mbappe. God i hate France.

Well he wouldn't have said that would he now?

11.) 06 Sep 2018 10:14:47
I think we’re in decent shape and I still think we’ll be second but with a shot at the title. First game was excellent, second was very professional, third a bit out of sorts and fourth we ground out a result.

The most impressive part however has been our maturity in defence, and a much more mature balance between attacking but not over committing when we’re already ahead. We may not have been at our slick best in the last two games, yet every game we’ve still had a clear advantage in chances created and looked reasonable confident at the back apart from just a few minor wobbles.

I think that’s the basis of a real challenge for the title.

Away from us, Chelsea’s impressed me a bit under Sarri, not perfect but I can see them outperforming my expectations and Man Utd underperforming (I was always thinking unlikely they’d be top 4 though! )

12.) 06 Sep 2018 10:48:28
we are getting way ahead. we haven't faced any one credible yet. Spurs game will give more insights. Till now we have beaten teams we were expected to beat and its been a great start. id discuss our credentials for the title only by the end of October. we have fielded strong teams in all games, our bench is largely untested and unused. a lot will depend on how Klopp uses our current depth and how clever he is with squad rotation. so its very early to say what will happen but the start has been 100% wins, gives us a great platform to launch.
for me this is the best season to win it unfortunately the most difficult season to win it too but that is what makes it even more worth it. There are 6 genuine quality top teams all want to win it. Three look like winning it.

13.) 06 Sep 2018 11:59:17
Neymar needs to leave mind games to the adults, he's not very good at them.

And I don't want to update my prediction - it'll come down to whoever makes less mistakes out of us, City and possibly Chelsea with Mourinho's messing costing United too many early points, Arsenal failing to settle and Spurs just not having the squad.

14.) 06 Sep 2018 18:00:57
Neymar would do better to concentrate on his own game. Its pointless asking how he came to that decision because we all know he wouldn't have been watching any game videos. Probably just going on what Gabriel Jesus has been telling him.

15.) 06 Sep 2018 18:27:34
Who cares what Neymar or any other non LFC player has to say about where we will finish this season esp. one who will be facing us in the CL? As Phil_LFC said, he'd better concentrate on his game and rid himself of that disgusting, cheating, flopping on the ground attitude he plays with instead us getting himself wound up over LFC. Also, people should stop paying attention/ getting wound up over comments being made by someone who is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. As for where we will finish this season? It's too early to tell and remember, the real PL starts after the int'l break. Have people seen our fixture list?

Tbh i would prefer he didn't come if his preference is real. If real don't buy him and we get him instead it will be the usual story of him developing into a world class player here and then decide he wants out to play for Barcelona or real.

Get someone in who wants to take us to the next level, not use as as a stepping stone.

Frankly you have been up and down this site slating butland for a couple of weeks now, has he done something in particular to you. 😂

He is a good keeper that just needs to recover his form and confidence. He can be a much better keeper than karius, just needs to prove it. In fact karius maybe needs the close competition to improve himself. Im not opposed to this at all.

But is that not the reason he is on loan op, because he is not good enough yet to either replace firmino or challenge origi on the bench. As it stands he had a year out with injury and sat on the bench for half a season until he got his loan. He is coming to a crunch point in his career, 19 soon to be 20, he needs regular game time now to develop his game, so I'm in favour of him staying on loan for now I'm afraid. Look how game time has developed sancho into a world class player, give brewster time to do the same I say.

So Ed, while we can't invest in the team this summer, do you see us having a transition season next season while we bed in the youngsters to push on the following season?

My reasoning is that with the likes of Man U, Chelsea, city investing in their squads, they will narrow the gap or surpass us even. We will also find it difficult to maintain the same levels as players will inevitably fall off, relax etc

I can see us having a good season winning a few cups etc but we will find it very challenging to retain back to back titles without investment tbh.

This is not a dig at the club in any way, I understand the financial situation, although I do find it incredibly frustrating lol.

I like Brewster, didn't he score again for Swansea on the weekend? Really good in front of goal, but he is lacking in build up/ link up play for me. Mind you, this is largely to do with his stunted development due to injuries. He is one that really needs game time to develop and he won't get that at Liverpool. He should go out on loan again next season to keep gaining experience at a decent level.

I wouldn't put too much pressure on Brewster tbh, but I agree he is a real talent with natural finishing ability. Needs to work on his link up play in general but that will come provided he is given chances to play like trent. Definitely don't think we need another striker with him and divock as backup.
