Is Keita injured again or is he just not getting in the squad. If he’s not injured then is that the writing on the wall for him as Shaq and Lallana are being ed ahead of him in the squad and both them are rumoured to be on the way out


1.) 28 Nov 2019 20:43:55
He be gone in the summer.

2.) 29 Nov 2019 01:00:25
I've heard illness kept him out this week and he's previously been struggling with shaking off recent injuries, . Of course these are often excuses used to detract from other issues but let's not write him off yet as we've seen many examples of players turning things around. Fabinho, OX, matip, Origi, Henderson all spent periods where our fan base gave absolutely no support or backing of them having an LFC future.

Keita is still only in his early 20s and has proved he has great talent.

Before his injury vs Barcelona he had flourished with confidence for 5 or 6 games as a regular starter scoring 3 goals and a couple of assists. He was rushed back and clearly unfit for international duty in the summer and his return to full fitness seems very frustrating but he's still young, has huge potential, on a long contract and a manager who will be the perfect judge of his worth to this team.

Unless he's a bad egg personality wise let's not give up on him just yet.

3.) 29 Nov 2019 03:36:03
He's ill I believe.

4.) 29 Nov 2019 04:08:20
He is ill.

5.) 29 Nov 2019 15:33:14
Guess what? ill is not good enough I would rather curtis Jones was in the squad, keita is a fraud who performs when he thinks is suitable, we need warriors and he is a tranny sorry its harsh but he is not contributing nowhere near enough .

6.) 29 Nov 2019 17:48:20
Literally made a profile to just ask for what you base the above opinion on hailstones? I understand if there were some substances involved.

7.) 29 Nov 2019 21:16:44
On the evidence provided from his time at the club, also info the Ed's have shared about him, its harsh but wat has he contributed and has he showed fight an desire on the pitch no he hasn't . I want too be wrong big time as I love the player we were signing but that player has evaporated into an average joe, you only have too look at Fabihno too know wat i am on about . Was not trusted at first went away got his game together an BINGO! same with Robertson.

8.) 30 Nov 2019 09:40:39
He’s shown glimpses and due to injury and the form of others hasn’t really been given an extended run to show what he can do. What he’s shown in training and as a professional off the pitch is another question.

9.) 01 Dec 2019 10:42:23
Interested to what you mean by "Tranny" Hailstones? I can't really take any criticism of a player if you're going for a pretty transphobic insult.

In terms of what you're saying about Fabinho / Robertson, the difference for them is that they were injury free for a sustained period so they could be integrated into the team, while for whatever reason Keita was picking up niggly injuries.

Sure I get he has been disappointing, but to call him a "Tranny" is pretty childish and insulting to be honest.



05 Apr 2019 13:11:20
Is there any rumour on Keita. Is he still very much in Klopps plans for next season and is this season just being written off as a bedding in period? I’m by no means suggesting that we get rid as I really want this guy to succeed and he was probably the player I was most looking forward to seeing this season. This is simply a query as you know what the rumour mill is like suggesting Klopp might look to sell back to Germany with Bayern / Dortmund linked.


1.) 05 Apr 2019 13:29:17
Ed001 answered a similar question below.

2.) 05 Apr 2019 22:35:40
Scored tonight. classic post.

3.) 06 Apr 2019 00:34:03
There is a rumour that Keita scored against Southampton.

4.) 06 Apr 2019 03:43:16
Please post on every match talking about the rumour departure of Naby.
We need you jk23.

5.) 06 Apr 2019 07:08:17
Well Naby did score today so hopefully this is the trigger he needs to finally kickstart his LFC career. He deserves one more season before we start thinking about possible destinations for him.



15 Aug 2018 15:56:12
Mignolet’s agent in talks with Napoli apparently. If he does go then all the best to him.


{Ed002's Note - Napoli want one of David Ospina or Simon Mignolet. Besiktas want one of Loris Karius, Ospina or Mignolet. Mignolet was priced out of a move to Fenerbahce. If Liverpool were to drop their demands for a loan fee for Karius, I suspect something could be done.}

1.) 15 Aug 2018 17:17:08
Currently in talks with Arsenal fro Ospina so that option looks dead in water. I think we will be stuck with him until at least January now.

2.) 15 Aug 2018 17:17:08
Cheers Ed002. A fountain of knowledge as per usual.

3.) 15 Aug 2018 17:52:35
Spot on Ed as usual with your info. You explained both Karius and Mignolet could well leave in August. I have to say though I thought Karius would stay. Kids not ready to be back up imo.

{Ed002's Note - He should have moved at the first opportunity. Staying at the club puts him in an untenable situation but I would not put it beyond Klopp to force him to stay.}

4.) 15 Aug 2018 18:51:54
He does want to leave then Ed? Was at Anfield on sunday and he seemed happy enough in the warm up, even signed a few programmes. Shame really.

{Ed002's Note - His position is completely untenable.}

5.) 15 Aug 2018 19:37:45
Do you mean untenable within the club? Certainly the fans would be happy for him to stay as a number 2.

{Ed002's Note - You must have a very short memory.}

6.) 15 Aug 2018 20:33:42
While there are some cretins, I think the ovation he received on his Anfield return speaks volumes to how the real fans feel about him.

7.) 15 Aug 2018 20:53:43
Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. At this stage I’d be happy for Karius to go and prove himself elsewhere and Migs to stay as reserve. 👍🏻.

8.) 15 Aug 2018 21:22:47
Saying ‘He should have moved at the first opportunity’ implies that he has had a chance to move and didn’t take it. Therefore I hardly think we can blame Klopp if he is still at Liverpool when the window closes.

{Ed002's Note - I am sure Klopp is not responsible for anything at all.}

9.) 15 Aug 2018 22:54:59
Actually I think it is fair to blame Klopp for the goalkeeper situation at the club, it has been a shambles for some time. Mignolet and Karius were told they were no1 keeper, then Ward has just wasted a whole year out of his career when it was obvious he needed to go back out on loan for his sake.
Ed02 is right, Karius position is untenable, the vile abuse he and his family has received is despicable. Any mistake Karius made this season would have been magnified and the pressure he would have felt at away grounds would have been too great.
However i do not understand why Liverpool put crazy prices on players they clearly do not want, and put off any potential suitors, surely a more reasonable price to move the goalkeepers on would be beneficial to everybody in the long run.

10.) 17 Aug 2018 10:04:49
*”Karius recieves abuse from some cretins; let’s blame Klopp it must be his fault”

Actually no, it’s the fault of a few mindless persons why Karius will struggle to hold down a role with the club.

11.) 17 Aug 2018 22:09:32
I never said it was Klopps fault for the abuse Karius received, as you rightly say that was down to the cretins. I think he handled the Danny Ward situation poorly. How was Ward going to get game time over Karius and Mignolet, the whole season was wasted for him.
Klopp is doing a brilliant job and bought so well this season, but we are allowed to occasionally criticize him, the goalkeeper situation definitely could have been handled better.

I know there’s been debate on here recently saying Bobby is our most important player. But I’ve just read a stat that since Fab has been signed he’s started 25 premier league games of which we’ve lost 0. We’ve won 21 and drawn 4. For me that just shows that even the unsung players are just as important as the Mo’s, VVD’s, Mane’s & Bobby’s of the team. Every single one of those players play their part in making us the team that we are.


1.) 20 Sep 2019 10:31:49
Imagine if we signed Aguero though. our front three would be Mane Salah and Firmino.

2.) 20 Sep 2019 11:27:05
I don't think anyone said he is more important that VVD. I think people were saying he was the most important forward player in their opinion. I agree with you all the players are vitally important, they will play great games, good and have bad games. They have all proved at various times they deserve our support. You can sometimes say they had a poor game but you can't question their attitude and work ethic on the pitch.

Mane been here over 3 years and I read he is unbeated at Anfield.

3.) 20 Sep 2019 11:27:21
Imagine if we kept Sterling though! Our front three would be Mane, Salah and Firmino.

4.) 20 Sep 2019 12:45:17
Yeah, it's so easy to forget that it's a team sport above all, composed of 11 players making a contribution. We're all too busy looking for heroes or zeroes. 😉.

5.) 20 Sep 2019 14:48:03
I love Bobby and know he is key in how we play and for Mo and Sadio but no one will convince me that Aguero would be on the bench instead of Bobby. The guys a goal scoring machine and often takes up positions that Mo and Sadio don’t so wouldn’t even be a problem in that count either.

However I’m perfectly happy with who we have so who cares.

6.) 20 Sep 2019 15:13:16
Did the person who came up with that stat not think that since last season we have started 43 games, won 35, lost one, and drawn 7? How can anyone deduce that games with Fab starting were any better for us? He basically just didn't start the City game which we lost. And didn't he come off the bench moments before Sane scored the winner?

Fab is an incredible player and we are so much better with him. But the stat and the meaning taken from it is nonsense.

7.) 20 Sep 2019 21:45:50
Very impressive to say the least!

8.) 20 Sep 2019 22:53:52
I love fab, mo, bobby (alot) mane, alisson. But our most important player is vvd, closely followed by jordan henderson.

9.) 20 Sep 2019 23:49:27
Yeah it's an impressive looking stat but doesn't mean anything really. You would think matip was roughly similar, Origi too. Fabinho of course is hugely important and it's clear to see he strengthens us in his role but those stats offer no real relevancy. In the 18 games he hasn't started we won 14 drew 3 and 1 loss. Loss to city, draws against spurs and Chelsea, .

Adrian has 100% win record as a PL starter for Liverpool, means little in reference to his individual importance.



31 Aug 2019 13:28:52
Xhedran Shaqiri has decided not to join the Swiss National team as he is focused to train hard and get more minutes for Liverpool in the coming weeks. Huge dedication. 👏🏻


1.) 31 Aug 2019 15:13:03
Surely getting 180 minutes of competitive football would help his case more than staying behind training? But yeah, it's dedication, I just don't know if it's the right decision.

2.) 31 Aug 2019 18:52:05
Well I think it's not just competitive minutes is essential. 2 weeks of daily training and working on how he can better adjust to our style and shape can be good for him.

With nearly all of our first choice 11 being away it's a good opportunity for klopp to work more closely with the likes of shaqiri, Milner, lallana as well as the younger lads. I'd rather shaqiri spend time working on what he needs to do to convince klopp he can be trusted instead of playing 2 international games for a team who's system is very different than ours.

Nice to see that he's showing to make an extra effort to improve himself and fight for more involvement. It shows he actually cares when you see so many players lately just happy to pick up their wage at a big club.

3.) 31 Aug 2019 19:13:00
Completely agree har and from an Irish Liverpool fans POV it's a great decision from the big man.

4.) 31 Aug 2019 19:47:20
I like it too. Shows his desire to play for us.

5.) 31 Aug 2019 22:00:02
Two weeks of training on how to track back, and press effectively in sync with the system, can only help his game and the team. At some point in the season Shaqiri (and Ox) will have to justify the faith Klopp has put in them by not going out and getting an AM.

6.) 01 Sep 2019 02:40:46
Better spend those 2 weeks running and defending lol.



03 Feb 2019 15:28:19
Ed001 what's your honest thoughts on some of the excuses Klopp has come up with recently. Blaming the grass for being too long, pitches being too dry, the wind and snow etc. Not to mention this snow in the penalty box incident v Leicester.

I love Klopp and clearly he is an intelligent man and personally I don't think he believes any of these excuses and is using it to potentially shield the team. But it's making him and the club look a little silly. What's wrong with saying we didn't perform to our best and sadly we didn't get the win or the opposition played well but we move onto the next game. Other clubs are not wanting us to win the title and some of these excuses are giving them more ammo and to be honest you cannot defend the indefensible. Interested to hear other posters thoughts as well.


{Ed001's Note - I really don't care and don't listen to press conferences etc anyway. They really are irrelevant. Most of those excuses he actually have a point about and he never 'blamed' them, just mentioned them as an issue. I am surprised you even see this as anything other than media bull to fill back pages with crap.}

1.) 03 Feb 2019 16:01:24
I mean, those are pretty standard 'excuses'. Most managers aren't going to come out and slam the team in public. And if you think those are silly, what about managers like Ferguson blaming the team's third kit for a loss, and Houllier saying that Fowler's celebration was inspired by some Cameroonian grass eating ritual he learned from Rigobert Song?

{Ed025's Note - that last one was a whopper..

2.) 03 Feb 2019 16:27:26
Can never understand Lfc "supporters" only dying to post about something ridiculous in the hope an Ed or two might agree with him, they were nothing comments by a manager who generally doesn't make excuses. The club doesn't look silly, they're top of the league with the best manager around! enjoy.

3.) 03 Feb 2019 16:54:57
Little Naby I don’t require the need for an Ed to agree with me I have my own opinions and mindset. I can never understand the snowflakes who seem to get offended or upset by people making comments on a comment group. Each to their own hey.

4.) 03 Feb 2019 17:13:20
Snowflakes? look at your original post mate.

5.) 03 Feb 2019 17:18:02
JK, you should know better mate, lol 😂.

6.) 03 Feb 2019 17:57:01
Yeah, basically don't take any notice of press conferences. As long as the team does the business that's all that counts. and it's sad when people do creep up to the eds. terrible. By the way ed. have you had your teeth done? You look great. And that waistcoat totally rocks with your chino's.

{Ed001's Note - I need to switch off that webcam obviously.....

{Ed033's Note - Maybe Roller was talking about ED025.}

7.) 03 Feb 2019 18:03:25
Come on guys. You should realize these pre and post game press conferences are nothing but glorified PR events designed to build up suspense and interest in the games. That's all they're good for. They can't all be serious and full of accurate info. Imagine being a manager and having to do 76 of those in a season. Would you take each and every one seriously and blurt out the truth and nothing but the truth? The facts are helpful (who's playing and who's not) but all else is mostly mind games and posturing for the media to reprint.

8.) 03 Feb 2019 18:22:28
Tbh, if I were a manager I think I'd enjoy the pressers the most. Our PR man would love trying to tie down the circles I'd try to run around the media.

{Ed0333's Note - what?

9.) 03 Feb 2019 18:31:46
Just enjoy the positives, don't look for negatives that aren't there. Im not even getting stressed watching this title race. what's better, battling it out with city or just waiting for another season to peater out, looking forward to the summer's signìgs in February like we usually do?

10.) 03 Feb 2019 21:09:20
Mcgoveb I should mate 🙄. I’ll just go back to not posting anything that raises debate and just read how rosey everything is and how we are guaranteed to win the league again this year.

11.) 03 Feb 2019 22:50:52
Agreed ed01. These press conferences and pundit talk have to fill 5 minutes of television time, so people who are not exactly Oxford educated come up with half arsed theories and spit words out without really thinking about it.

12.) 04 Feb 2019 06:44:51
Come on guys, let's spare the OP some slack. It's been a boring transfer window, the team's been doing well and is looking settled. We all need something to talk about, even if it's splitting hairs!

To each their own. Talking about the pitch etc always reminds me of an old Ranieri press conference when he was the Chelsea manager. The pitch was full mud like, and he said something like "Life is a beach" at the end of the game - such a crack up!



04 Jan 2019 11:02:06
What’s everyone’s thoughts on Wolves mon night? I think before last nights defeat we may have seen a number of changes for the game on mon but does Klopp now risk the backlash of back to back defeats if we play a weakened team. For me my honest opinion is I don’t care if we go out to Wolves on mon night as long as we beat Brighton next week and get our heads back 100% on the league campaign.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 11:37:48
I think most will want to play a strong team because we need to pick right back up. I think we need to rest Salah and Firmino for sure.

I'd like to see Keita, Shaq and Fabinho start in midfield.

If Brewster is fit, I'd like to see him start.

2.) 04 Jan 2019 12:48:59
Klopp will play a solid team with the likes of Shaq, Fab, Naby, Studge, Allison, Clyne mixed in with some young players. Klopp would want a reaction and will not be taking the game for granted so those who play had better get ready to give 100%.

3.) 04 Jan 2019 23:34:42
I think it’s an ideal game for Kieta to grab the bull by the horns and put himself back into contention for a starting place.



02 Dec 2018 13:38:12
Ed001 just read this online so I’ve copied and pasted it so please don’t shoot the messenger. What’s your thoughts on this please mate as I’m 99% certain it is BS.

*Klopp, Buvac separation behind Liverpool issues- Serbian journalist*

A Serbian Journalist Milan Marin has offered an insighted detail that Jurgen Klopp is deliberately abandoning Liverpool's way of attacking football as a way to prove to long-time friend Zeljko Buvac

"Many Liverpool fans don't know the real reason why their team is playing way it is, but Mr Klopp does and he is doing it deliberately, I have it on good ground from a friend who works at Liverpool and is close to team and was introduced to me by Buvac when he was at Liverpool. He told me Klopp doesn't want anything to do with any input of Buvac, such is now the hatred of two friends who were best friends from 1990s and worked from 2001 as managers it is sad" he said

"Liverpool fans ask where is the pressing gone? The truth is, Klopp doesn't need the press, it was Buvac style. It's like two friends becoming enemies and even the car one bought for the other, is either parked on the garage or you don't want to drive it again. Naby Keita is a victim of this fall out, because he was bought as a recommendation of Buvac who has relations in Leipzig, but now Klopp isn't playing him, many of the transfers done this summer were all recommended by Buvac and Klopp isn't using them because he wants to introduce a new style and win in his own way. Liverpool fans believe Liverpool can't reproduce last season form, but the issue is Mr Klopp doesn't want to use last season's tactics known as Zeljko Buvac tactics" he added.


{Ed001's Note - it is nonsense mate, Keita got injured or we would have seen a lot more of him and he was signed in the main on the recommendation of one of our players, not Buvac. I am quite sure there is an element of trying to do things differently to prove a point, but it is more than just about that. If the players and staff believed that Klopp was just throwing a petty tantrum about a break-up with his mate, do you think we would not have already known about it? They fell out because they had different ideas and the changes are because of those different ideas not because of the fall out. It was the cause not a consequence of the fall out.}

1.) 02 Dec 2018 13:59:57
Cheers for the reply Ed001 and I agree with everything you've just said.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate. It is just spin to turn an old story into something new. There is still a few months to go before we know for sure if Klopp or Buvac were right, but so far the results are suggesting Buvac was not correct, though the performances are not as exciting.}

2.) 02 Dec 2018 14:18:25
This is my point of view. I have seen on this page, many a time and long long before Buvac had left that the system that they used had been "found out". That Klopp hadn't won a trophy in many years using said system, with Buvac by his side at all times. Also that Klopp needed a defence coach to help with the goals we are leaking etc etc. Well we don't leak goals anymore and we are actually pretty good at defending and as far as I know he didn't get a defence coach, I might be wrong tho. We have also changed our system overall this season, maybe not so dynamic but sitting pretty in the League, trying to keep up with by far the best squad in our league. Yet you hear the "experts" coming out and saying how we miss Buvac. Well we didn't win anything with Buvac here or in Germany, so I'm not surprised Klopp has changed the system a bit, but it seems to me that he is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. Give the guy a break. We aren't perfect but in my opinion a far more complete team than we were when Buvac had his input.

3.) 02 Dec 2018 15:44:08
There's always going to be people out there wanting to stir things up for us and get people thinking in overdrive mode, this is the exact reason I avoid reading stuff on other sites because 99.9% is complete BS.

4.) 02 Dec 2018 17:15:01
is that player sadio mane by anychance ed01?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate.}

5.) 02 Dec 2018 22:33:24
Irish Rover, you are a beuty. That is the exact point I have been making ever since this whole Buvac nonsense kept coming up. Klopp gave credit to Buvac for being his "brain" and being integral to his success. Suddenly cos they had a falling out, people seem tpo think that Klopp cannot function w/ o him. Abject nonsense. Buvac is NO genius and the last time I checked he was an assistant. if he was that good why did he not go make a name for himself as David Wagner (Klopp's BFF) did?

Also as you say, people bleating on and on about how "we were playing flying football and now that Buvac is gone, we no longer are". Again, a crock of nonsense. Was it not the same Buvac who has been here when we were conceding goals for fun and getting pummeled by the big teams all of last season? Did we win anything with him as assistant ever? Did't think so. This whole Buvac crap is nothing but a Nothing-burger. It is not a thing. Never was and NEVER wil be. So those who keep parroting the same nonsense (esp. from some crackpot Sebian journalist) will continue to embarrass themselves with their ignorance.

6.) 02 Dec 2018 21:00:38
ed how does that work with mane? Do the club go and ask him about naby knowing he was friends with him or is it common enough for senior players in the squad to recommend players to the coaching staff?

{Ed001's Note - it is very common for players to recommend other players. It can be any of a hundred ways, depending on the manager's relationship with the players.}

7.) 03 Dec 2018 11:18:53
cheers ed appreciate the reply🖒🖒.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome.}

8.) 03 Dec 2018 12:21:45
That means mane has a very healthy relationship with klopp!

Gmil you do realise our defence and attack contribute to keeping that possession as well. The midfield are very good at breaking up play and yes they are pretty good at keeping possession of the ball. Would be nice to see them being a little bit more creative with all this possession though.

I thought they just had to win to go through. Any other result and we go through. Any Ed’s able to clear this up. I agree in principle Drogie. CL football seems to lift us, Europa league football seems to hinder a lot of English teams in the premier league.

Watched it on match of the day and there was a clear whistle before Dunk even began his run up to more or less pass the ball into the back of the net. Adrian made a couple of saves when he came on but he almost gifted Brighton another with the lame header he spilled. If a player had followed that in we would have conceded a 2nd. We didn’t though and we won the Match.

g1dgo cheers for letting me know he was ill mate. I did ask the question on the group the other day but didn’t think I got a reply when I checked last so I then assumed he just didn’t make the squad.
