Benfica have announced to the relevant authorities in Portugal (a legal requirement) the agreement to sell Nunez to LFC.

So it is done subject to the medical.


1.) 13 Jun 2022 07:52:57
I still won't believe it's done until he s played three seasons with us.

2.) 13 Jun 2022 09:00:03
And don't forget the Liverpool lean?.

3.) 13 Jun 2022 13:05:36
He's faster than Torres according to his stats. I mean not many have been faster than Torres. He's going to be lightning fast.

{Ed077's Note - what stats? Is there even stats(video games withstanding) out there of acceleration/burst of pace?



08 Aug 2021 11:58:45
We're offloading players to balance the Konate fee.

I really don't see any other first team ready players coming in during this window.

We all know how FSG work.

You never know Keita ight surprise is all this season as he should get more game time with Gini gone - if he can stay fit.


1.) 08 Aug 2021 12:14:12
Keita? 2 hopes there Bob and no! ’.

2.) 08 Aug 2021 12:21:10
FSG seemed to work quite well with Alison and VVD both of who cost world record fees for their positions when bought.

3.) 08 Aug 2021 12:19:50
When Keita is fit Klopp often plays him, he is just not fit often enough. How do FSG work? Last year they bought 3 players, 2 first teamers. This year they bought Konate of course they will buy another player if Klopp wants one or two.

4.) 08 Aug 2021 12:29:22
Another season of the comedy “football” stylings of Naby Keita, sigh. Hopefully the Penny will drop within the club that he’s utterly hopeless and be sold next summer after another disappointing season. £50m down the khazi.

5.) 08 Aug 2021 12:41:15
Slop slating our best player on form.

6.) 08 Aug 2021 12:50:34
No he’s absolutely spot on. Keita is not good enough and has been nothing but a waste of time and money. Also, even when on form he’s not even close to our best player.

7.) 08 Aug 2021 13:00:32
West Derby Wanderer, you do realise that Coutinho’s fee paid for Allison and VVD.

8.) 08 Aug 2021 13:01:05
Has been in every game recently.

9.) 08 Aug 2021 13:39:43
I'm going to get behind the lad - if it wasn't for his injury record he'd be a far better player than Wijnaldum by now. Hopefully he can avoid any more lay-offs, and fulfil the potential we saw before he signed.

10.) 08 Aug 2021 13:50:57
IPC12 - you took the words right out of my mouth there!

WDW obviously doesn't realise that fact.

Markp08 - let's just wait and see. What I posted above is my opinion of course, and I could be wrong. 3 weeks to go to see if I am or not.

11.) 08 Aug 2021 14:17:32
Our form player it’s embarrassing to even hear or see people say that! Friendly games they mean Notting mix b match team against the same!
Keita is a klopp dud buy as 02 has said klopped cried for him and he got him he will stick by him too most disbelief!
That lad needs a solid boot in the hole!

12.) 08 Aug 2021 14:29:21
Kieta hasn’t been on form since he signed for us. He got his big move and big pay cheque and went straight into semi retirement.

13.) 08 Aug 2021 15:12:22
He’s a liverpool player who represents the club. Maybe afford him and the manager and the club a little respect! Fans? You give us a bad name. Sometimes things don’t work out as we all hope they would. That doesn’t mean you should turn into an arsehole because it’s hasn’t gone to plan. Fan = supported not some childish boo boy who knows f all about f all.

14.) 08 Aug 2021 15:28:43
We can’t sell Keita because no one will buy him but let’s keep abusing him, that’ll make him play better.

15.) 08 Aug 2021 15:54:24
I know Keita had a torrid time with injures and never really lived up to his true potential with us. While I'm fine if he's sold, but if he's not, let's hope he finally comes good. At the rate that we're signing players this season, we really need the existing players to step up. Rant all we want, if you love Liverpool, stand behind the team. Otherwise, you're free to support PSG or City.

16.) 08 Aug 2021 16:14:01
Posters like IPC12 and KBL amuse me. Do they think that the acquisition and decision to sell Coutinho was nothing to do with the club's management.

17.) 08 Aug 2021 16:18:34
Well said DAPred.

18.) 08 Aug 2021 17:16:45
You lot are embarrassing. constantly slagging off players and the owners. Really tiresome reading it all. Its called support for a reason and you lot clearly ain't supporters.

19.) 08 Aug 2021 17:17:54
Redman and thunderbird. well said, the others are a joke.

20.) 08 Aug 2021 18:00:49
Aye, its embarrassing all right. Its like nearly willing him to fail just so some can be proved right. Weird!
Its a week until the season starts, if he stays then support. He certainly won't get any better ridiculing him.

21.) 08 Aug 2021 19:18:22
We’re in year four of the Naby Keita project and he’s shown nothing in competitive matches in the previous years to suggest he’s got what it takes. It baffles me how people can be so gushing in praise and effusive of someone who has never put even a minute fraction of the hard work and effort that Gini Wijnaldum did and yet Gini used to come in for a lot of grief. If Keita left tomorrow, the club would not miss him, however I can be sure that Gini will be missed as he was reliable, always match fit and put a shift in, all things that Naby has never done.

22.) 08 Aug 2021 19:37:42

23.) 08 Aug 2021 20:11:25
Red planet? What are you talking about? You sell a player, you reinvest… isn’t that what a logical team does?

24.) 08 Aug 2021 20:30:02
IPC12 and KBL. In the 2 transfer windows we purchased VVD and Allison 'with the Coutinho money', we also purchased Keita, Fabinho and Shaq.
With other sales, we actually spent £70ish net, taking into account the Coutinho fee.

25.) 08 Aug 2021 20:43:30
Just wondering how FSG work - enlighten me.

26.) 08 Aug 2021 21:28:12
IPC12 I understand that outgoings at least notionally help balance the books and fund incomings yes.

I also understand - at a basic level at least, having sat at the back of the class when we did maths at school - that FSG invest in assets when they see an asset adding to the value of the club. I also understand that some assets are purchased based on the forecast return from future revenue streams. Over the past 18 months one of the revenue streams has been severely impacted, and as of now continues to be so. So, we don’t have enough money, or certainty of sufficient future match day revenue at the moment to ‘splash the cash’. Even if we did we are also stuck because of the issue of home grown / non-home grown players. Can’t say too much about this because I dropped geography before o-levels but I think it has something to do with coming from Widnes or further away.

I think though, given FSG being a company that is keen to make a profit on their assests and with the proof of the caliber of players they have brought into the club, the state of the art training complex they have built and the upgrades to the ground which will see us with a 67,000 capacity (and more income for us to all play wannabe Premier Manager each transfer window) that they deserve a bit more respect than they sometimes get on these crass threads that people start because we haven’t bought the latest name that some hack with no knowledge thinks up.

Anyway on we go - I read a bit earlier that we are thinking of bidding for some 34 year old Argentinian who is a feee agent …….

27.) 08 Aug 2021 21:47:04
Don’t buy a Porsche if you can’t afford the petrol, John. If someone somewhere could really clarify how one of the most historical clubs, biggest names and very recently super successful with many record breaking sponsorship deals do not have a pot to p. in?

28.) 08 Aug 2021 23:08:46
They do have a pot to pee in. But it sprung a few leaks.

29.) 09 Aug 2021 00:48:16
I did this management course a few years back and they were banging on about data leading to information leading to knowledge leading to wisdom and one of the things they covered in passing was a little thing about knowledge :

There are things you know that you know, for example, your name, address, date of birth.

There are things you know that you don’t know, for example how Margaret Thatcher got elected

There are things that you don’t know that you don’t know, for example as a football fan how the finances of an international brand Premier League football club works ….

30.) 09 Aug 2021 07:00:17
More hopeful and excited for Kieta staying jnjury free and kicking on this season tha I am about new signings.



31 Jul 2021 09:48:35
No more incomings for us this year I'm afraid.


1.) 31 Jul 2021 09:52:26
Will this nonsense stop?

2.) 31 Jul 2021 13:07:14
There was a fella the other day saying there would be bids for Bissouma, Bowen and someone else ‘in a few days …… I love the transfer window.



19 Feb 2021 12:25:59
Alisson out tomorrow - and Kelleher injured too!


1.) 19 Feb 2021 13:11:55
Klopp just confirmed he's fine.

2.) 19 Feb 2021 13:19:27
Klopp just said Alisson is fine.

KBL, do you have your info from a reliable source, or is it from a site that saw he missed training yesterday (as is being widely reported)?

3.) 19 Feb 2021 13:21:43
Bum steer there people - Klopp's just said Ali's fine. My bad. Twitter twaddle again.

4.) 19 Feb 2021 13:29:18
Just because they weren't seen in the training photos? Chill out with the histrionics please.

5.) 19 Feb 2021 16:23:09
Nothing to do with training pictures JM - I had several messages from normally reliable sources.

I've suitably reprimanded the culprits though.

6.) 19 Feb 2021 16:40:12
Usual story, see a story on Twatter and of course it must be true.
Even though most folks know about Twatter by now, it never ceases to amaze me how many read this sort of crap and instantly swallow the bait.

7.) 19 Feb 2021 17:05:46
Don't be so harsh on KBL this is a rumours site! KBL you owe me wireless mouse that I threw across the room after reading your post mate.

8.) 19 Feb 2021 18:06:54
In fairness to KBL, nearly every rumour of injuries on twitter this season have turned out to be true. Usually its 99% rubbish, but all the rubbish ones seem to be true. Thank god its rubbish this time.

9.) 20 Feb 2021 12:41:05
Hey FlashTheRed - I'm not even on Twitter, and I still got it wrong.

MMR - love it. Just the kind of thing I do.



09 Oct 2020 09:35:29
Has anyone any idea how long Alisson will be out? The club tend to keep these things very close. Like when Henderson was injured, Klopp said it was absolutely nothing, but he was out for ages.

I have been hearing whispers that Ali won't be back before Christmas.

I really hope those whispers are way off the mark.


1.) 09 Oct 2020 10:13:39
I read somewhere (might've been on here) 6-8 weeks.

2.) 09 Oct 2020 10:24:55
Thanks Salah - I hope you're nearer the mark buddy.

3.) 09 Oct 2020 10:43:15
i think those whispers have been from everton fans. the injury he has sustained is around 4-6 weeks recovery.

{Ed025's Note - cheers doc.. :)

4.) 09 Oct 2020 10:44:04
Fingers crossed mate.

5.) 09 Oct 2020 13:15:54
Southern Red - what is his injury actually? I have only heard it's his shoulder, but nothing else.

6.) 09 Oct 2020 15:09:45
“He has no chance to play against Everton, " Jurgen Klopp said after the Villa game, also backing Adrian to step up. “I don't want to put a timeframe but four weeks is possible, six weeks more likely. "

it was a shoulder injury i believe a collision in training.

7.) 09 Oct 2020 16:56:40
Shoulder injuries are nothing to mess around with. If he comes back too soon, and reinjures, then it's likely he will need surgery that will come with a recovery time that would likely cost him the season.

8.) 09 Oct 2020 14:12:49
No worries Ed.

Are we going to be without Van Dijk and Konate tomorrow? Seems there's a good chance we will be.


1.) 11 Mar 2022 13:48:23
How come?

2.) 11 Mar 2022 13:59:45
Think it may be C.V. related Baz.

3.) 11 Mar 2022 14:16:29
Because of C.V.?

We've bit hit before and survived and think we can make it through with Gomez and Matip if we need, just depends who else is missing.

4.) 11 Mar 2022 14:34:20
Oh ok thanks.

5.) 11 Mar 2022 14:37:59
Thiago didn’t train either.

6.) 11 Mar 2022 14:44:23
Yeah, it seems CV is why. A reminder to us all that it is still alive and kicking.

7.) 11 Mar 2022 15:11:19
Nothings been announced yet even if couple of them are out Joe can step in and remind everyone just how good he is.

8.) 11 Mar 2022 15:21:25
I've dodged it for a couple of years but am sat at home with the regal C.V. now : (.

{Ed077's Note - wish you a speedy recovery Jonesy.

9.) 11 Mar 2022 16:02:51
Cheers 077, I'm doing ok but understand I'm one of the lucky ones.

10.) 11 Mar 2022 16:28:00
Speedy recovery, Jonesy227. As for the absentees, it is what it is. Get the reserves ready to play and let's go get the business done vs Brighton.

11.) 11 Mar 2022 16:37:40
Yeah good luck and get well soon. I am only one out of all my mates girlfriend family not to have it.

12.) 11 Mar 2022 17:35:37
Got very mild symptoms thanks lads and would be working if it was just a normal cold. Having a few Overtones and looking forward to match on TV tomorrow even though its a stones throw from me gaff : (.

{Ed025's Note - get well soon mate..

13.) 11 Mar 2022 17:50:27
Erm why on earth would they be missing if they have no symptoms? There’s no law to make them isolate now… if they’re feeling good they should be training and earning their money and if they’re training good they should be playing.

14.) 11 Mar 2022 17:59:51
Cheers 025 how are you? Just out of interest do any of you travel down for the Albion games? If so maybe next season can get together for a beer or two after match?

{Ed025's Note - good thanks mate..

15.) 11 Mar 2022 18:22:12
Jezza, I may not be the law now but commonsense says you don't mix one player with CV with others. Next thing you know you have 6 players down with it.

16.) 11 Mar 2022 18:40:58
Jonesy Everton will only play West Brom next season if Wba don’t get promoted 😜.

17.) 11 Mar 2022 18:59:53
JK when I said you guys I meant YOU GUYS. Its easy for things to be misinterpreted by message.

18.) 11 Mar 2022 19:17:23
Jonesy my reply was a joke mate aimed at Ed0025 to imply Everton will be relegated.

I won’t give up my day job just yet 🤣.

19.) 11 Mar 2022 20:17:50
Had a few beers mate so my bad.



10 Nov 2021 11:33:22
If we look back over several seasons Liverpool have quite often had their worst spell of results in November - for whatever reason. Of course not every season.

Well, with losing our first league game in November, and of the season so far, I hope this isn't a sign of what's to come this month.

At least the International break reduces the number of games for us this November.

My worry is, we played awful against WH, thoroughly deserving to lose, still have loads of injuries, and will lose our most potent players for the whole of January, and just don't have the quality in depth to cope with this.

It's been commented on these pages that WH's problems could come due to their lack of squad depth, but quality wise, ours isn't much better.

Just imagine playing up to 8 games with Salah, Mane and even Keita.

It's not a comforting thought.

What do others think?


1.) 10 Nov 2021 11:39:13
That should say 'without' btw.

2.) 10 Nov 2021 12:29:31
Wow KBL we have lost one prem game this season that’s all just one. Topped the champions league group with two games to go and in the last 8 in the league cup. We have incredible players and probably the best manager in the world. We have a world class stadium and training Center. Get a grip mate and enjoy it while it lasts!

3.) 10 Nov 2021 18:13:27
OP, I think our worst times near every season under Klopp is btw Jan and Feb. We lost one game in the last 25 in all comps. No point over-analysing things and trying to draw parallels which IMO, don’t exist. We just need to improve and keep working hard at the things we aren’t currently good at and we will be okay. Cheers, man.

4.) 10 Nov 2021 19:17:02
The AFCON thing and the fact we’re looking weak in midfield and defence is the reason we won’t win the league and league games without Salah and Mane is going to crucify us, it’s plausible to think we could go those five games without a win as we struggled to break down Chelsea earlier this season, we have struggled against Leicester on a few occasions, Palace is a hard place to go to at the best of times and they’re going reasonably well, and Brentford are going to fancy their chances again.

I think we can consider the domestic cups binned off as there’s no point risking limited resources on those competitions.

Given there’s no money to spend (at least not being able to bring in any decent players) we’ve just got to soak it up.

5.) 10 Nov 2021 20:16:41
Last Nov and Dec we were top of the league. Oli nailed it we normally have our wobble straight after Xmas and into Jan.
As longthing said it’s been a good start to the season overall but I think if you break each one down then

CL- Phenomenal start to the season 4 wins from 4 in the so called group of death. Qualified already with 2 games to spare.

League Cup - a comp we normally go out early so nice to see us still in it and done it by utilising the squad.

League - a good start with us currently 4th and only having lost 1 game. The not so good part is we’ve only won just over half the games and drawn just under the other half. On current trajectory it would work out over the season roughly as us winning around 20 games, Drawing 15 games and losing 3. Which would leave us with 75 points. Is that enough to win the league. Who knows 🤷🏻‍♂️.

6.) 10 Nov 2021 20:33:19
It used to be (70s and 80s) our best period was after Christmas.

7.) 10 Nov 2021 21:54:20
I think you were joking mate. 75 points will be lucky to get top 4. Nearly 90 points will be needed to win the league. It’s been a poor start to the league campaign. No one at the start of the season would have settled for our points total atm. The next 10 games we need a minimum 25 points.

{Ed025's Note - get a grip mark, its been a very decent start for the reds mate..

8.) 10 Nov 2021 22:35:23
Mark I’m playing devils advocate mate. Like I said great start to the CL and not ideal that we have drawn so many games. I don’t think 75 points would be enough but it’s a guessing game as literally the season could play out any way.

Losing isn’t the end of the world and if we had actually lost 1 more game of the draws and won the other 3 we would actually be 5 points better off.

Id happily take 8 league defeats a season if it meant we’ve won the other 30 games and put us on 90 points. However we don’t live in an ideal world and for us to finish on 90 points + we need 23 wins from the remaining 26 games.

9.) 10 Nov 2021 22:57:24
27 games sorry.

10.) 11 Nov 2021 00:49:46
4 points off top and finishing top of the champions league group with two games to spare is a pretty good start for me👌
Aiye it be tough enough come January, I think there tough enough to power through it though, would the big dog be open to changing formation to accommodate it I wonder. 💪.

11.) 11 Nov 2021 02:44:13
Mark mate you are the most negative supporter about bud cheer up it could be worse it could be 10 years ago mate.

12.) 11 Nov 2021 10:21:04
Redjoe21 and this is just my opinion, it seems that some people just have this need to be negative/ salty at all times to make it sound like they are different or are of a higher standard than everyone else meanwhile, forgetting that it is actually very possible to be optimistic while at the sake time, recognising blindspots and flaws within the system, group or society and work to correct them. Sad.

13.) 11 Nov 2021 13:41:14
Oli, that kind of "pseudo-intellectualism" (which you're describing) takes you nowhere. Those who know, know.

14.) 11 Nov 2021 21:25:54
ArAy1969, I gave an opinion. All that pseudo-whatever stuff, I’ll leave up to you to nibble on.



02 Nov 2021 09:01:46
Good mornings all - is Griezman suspended for the match tomorrow?


1.) 02 Nov 2021 10:54:41
Should be if he was shown a red card only in his previous match!

{Ed002's Note - Savic and Griezmann are both suspended.}



26 Sep 2021 11:02:05
Yesterday was our 3rd away game on the trot, and we have another 5 games away in our next 6 with Man City the only home game in October.

That is a brutal schedule, and will be a very testing time for the boys.

So let's hope for a win next weekend as we won't be at Anfield for a few weeks after that.


1.) 26 Sep 2021 11:56:31
Professional athletes I’m sure they’ll be fine.

2.) 26 Sep 2021 12:21:19
Massive massive game v City. I expect changes v Porto.

3.) 26 Sep 2021 12:43:34
“If you cannot stand the heat then, get out of the kitchen” comes to mind here. OP, don’t sweat it. It’s what our boys live for. Remember, we finished 3 rd last season with 3 of our final 4 games away from home and won them all. It’s what we do.

4.) 26 Sep 2021 13:14:12
Tough to have so many away games but it just means in the future we’ll have the return matches and plenty of them at home.



28 Aug 2021 15:07:38
AArrgh, Oh no - my missus has asked her family round this afternoon for a bank holiday p. up. Sounds good, and it normally is, but the bad news is that every single time we see her lot when Liverpool play, we lose, and that includes the 1988 cup final against Wimbledon.

She just never learns.


1.) 28 Aug 2021 15:30:52
You don't learn. whys she still your missus?

2.) 28 Aug 2021 15:37:04
Quite simply, you have to leave her NOW!

3.) 28 Aug 2021 15:38:34
Just leave before they get there and go to the pub to watch the match.

4.) 28 Aug 2021 16:30:07
Pretend that you’ve got a persistent cough and have to “self isolate” until you can get a PCR test. That should keep them away for a few days.

5.) 28 Aug 2021 16:33:49
She has to go KBL.

JK23 - I thought we finished 3rd last season, after playing most of it without the best CB in the world, Matip and Gomez crocked, and so many different team combinations due to our horrific injury problems.

Look, City will never stop doing what they're doing and if it wasn't for us the PL would have been gone by Christmas - in fact, most punters thought it was.

They have just spent about a third of a billion on a deal for Haaland, when you take everything into consideration, No one can compete with that in the PL. It will be the same with Newcastle now too. Give it 5 seasons and they will be winning plenty of trophies too.

The way we have performed over the past 4/ 5 seasons has been phenominal, and long may it continue.

Not seen you post for a while, so welcome back, and I hope all is well with you.

I am full of hope for the quad but feel City will double down now and take the PL.

But what a season we are having with real excitement until the very last match! .

Ed001 is spot on about Martinelli. He has no end product. He goes past players for fun is unbelievably fast, as he showed when in a foot race with Diaz and left him in his wake, works hard and battles to win balls, but all to no avail. Only young though, and would certainly be an asset in our squad, but how often would he play?

Yeah, it seems CV is why. A reminder to us all that it is still alive and kicking.
