Been reading some rumours that Alexander-Arnold is being offered a new deal that will make him our highest earner.

Hope it is true, we need to do anything and everything we can to keep him.

Lamborini I 9 I

There's been mention of doubling his salary to 360k per week. It did raise my eyebrows a bit, but I guess that's market rate at present. Mohammed Salah level. And Casemiro and Varane level too (do those Mancs really know what they're doing, sigh? ) .


2.) 08 Apr 2024 09:30:12
Alexander-Arnold is only 25 and could easily get better. Plus, as a Liverpool fan - he will hopefully not just rest on his laurels and rake in the money.

Casemiro was aging and offered a big payday.


3.) 08 Apr 2024 11:41:19
It's a dangerous precedent if we give Alexander-Arnold £360k a week. It was different with Salah as he is a forward who guarantees you at least 20 goals a season and the risk was mitigated by it being a three year contract. Trent is a right-back who can be suspect defensively. In my opinion, he isn't necessarily exceeding expectations on his current £180k a week. If he gets £360k a week, what will that do to the wage structure? Surely Van Dijk, Mac Allister, Allison and others will demand similar salaries if they sign new contracts and others will demand increases relative to the new set standard? I don't think you can say Alexander-Arnold is head and shoulders above the other players in the team. I would have thought between £220k and £250k a week would be both fair and generous.

Could Michael Edwards be crippling us with a high wage bill again? Ed1, not sure if you have any thoughts on this one.


4.) 08 Apr 2024 11:45:49
Trent scores 3 goals a season and his assists are half of what they were when he's came in centrally plus there's no guarantees he'll get into midfield under a new manager. he's quality but that's outrageous if he gets put onto that.


5.) 08 Apr 2024 12:49:56
I don't know, with the cost of goods at the minute and with interest rates as they are, he's probably struggling on anything less than £360k a week. I seen him at the bank the other day asking about a loan to buy a second hand Volvo.


6.) 08 Apr 2024 14:57:06
If TAA gets 360k, then Bradley deserve 280k, Robertson is creating chmaces from other flank should be at 250k for his age.

The Coutinho move was on! He has failed his medical so the move will not happen. The Medical staff have apparently picked up on an old back injury of some sort so we have pulled out.

Lol. an old back injury you say.


2.) 16 Jul 2019 03:30:27

How inconsiderate of Klopp. dropping this bombshell in the middle of a transfer window will mean the Eds will be busier than ever.

I joke of course. I am absolutely gutted. Hopefully Alonso will replace.

What is everyone's opinion on the possibility of Henderson leaving? I am really on the fence with it. I still think he has something to offer, even if it is just on the bench, he is a great leader and dressing room presence - relying on him less could help his form. However, he has achieved everything he can at Liverpool and is on the wrong side of 30 so looking to move him on wouldn't be the worst thing.

Lamborini I 9 I

1.) 10 Jul 2023 19:05:39
He has been an excellent captain and an even better role model. From the clubs perspective money talks I guess, if a really good offer for a 30 plus player comes in I think they would take it and use the money to invest in a younger player. The squad still has bags of players with experience of winning things such as Mo, Ali, VVD and Trent. Time will tell, but he has been fantastic for us (given what we paid for him) .


2.) 10 Jul 2023 18:57:53
I'm torn, I think he still has something to offer particularly off the pitch but we've not done particularly well in securing fees for those leaving the club so sometimes it is better to move someone on while you can still get a free for them. I'd rather not get dragged in to the debate of where he is going as I am relatively uneducated on the subject so seems naive of me to pass judgment.


3.) 10 Jul 2023 19:10:26
I said on the other page that it would be poor, imo.
Especially as he's the club captain too.
Hope it doesn't happen though.


4.) 10 Jul 2023 19:15:21
I would be surprised if Klopp deployed Mac and Szobo as the forward two in our midfield for say, the first half
Of the season. I could see hendo or Thiago playing opposite one or the other to help coach them through the games until they learned tactics, etc. for this reason I think he will stay.


5.) 10 Jul 2023 19:31:20
He was a very good player and an exceptional leader and standard setter. If he leaves, I will be sad but will wish him the best of luck. We will miss him more off the pitch than on it.


6.) 10 Jul 2023 20:02:12
Great question. Strap yourself in lads. This is going to be a long one.

First I want to define what I see Henderson is and brings at this stage of his career:

Leadership: There'll be some people who say this does not matter that greatly. My view is it matters a lot more than people think. He is the captain. He is a trusted and respected Leader. Leadership is not just about giving rousing speeches. Its about setting example in training. Its about setting standards. Its calling people out when standards are dropped. This latter point is where I think Hendo shines more than anyone else in our club due to the fact he has the uttermost respect of the players. I've seen Henderson call out Van Dijk, Salah, Allison - all our best and finest. I've never heard of there being player bust ups in the dressing room after with Hendo. No one is immune to him should standards slip. He demands high standards from EVERYBODY AT THE CLUB and because he is a respected leader, it does not cause rifts in the squad. In a sport where teamwork and dynamic is key, Henderson is super glue.

Less Minutes gets us the best version of Hendo: A squad needs a healthy mix of age. Some people are very ageist on this site. While I would want most of the squad sub 30, there is room for a couple over that age. I laugh when people think we should sell Salah. Madness. But anyway, back to Hendo. He is not a player that should or even can play week in week out 90 minutes anymore. With reduced minutes, I am absolutely convinced, we will see a Hendo close to his top quality. With a fresher body, he can give his absolute all (which we know he will) . Hendo has always risen to the challenge of competition. He was supposed to be sold from Liverpool, he ends up our captain. Geez, even the last World Cup, he was out of the team and by the end he was a mainstay. The man is a fighter. I'm 99% sure he will raise his game in the fewer minutes. There'll be games where the team is missing a spark. There's a lull. Its just not happening. Those are the games I would want Hendo on my bench. I'll tell you exactly what will happen. Within 30 seconds he will charge down the ball. he will bark at everyone. He is excellent off the bench. The new and dare I say it improved Milner. He still has a lot of quality and he only just turned 33 last month.

Versatility: he can play all the midfield roles and in a pinch could play the Arnold role if we stay with this setup. You are covering a lot of positions there with one player on your bench.

I guess I could have just said no but I prefer to give a long winded response with reasons. I would keep Hendo.

What is clear is we are at capacity in midfield really.
Fabinho, Thiago, Jones, Bajcetic, Hendo, Eilliot, Mac Allister and Szobozlai, potentially Arnold too. and Morton. That's a lot of players. The most obvious sell to me to make room for another player is Thiago. Not Hendo. Sell Thiago, purchase Lavia or similar and that's a fantastic job done on our midfield.

{Ed025's Note - good read that Davey...or is it Mrs Henderson?.. :)


7.) 10 Jul 2023 20:04:48
Everyone’s time at liverpools comes to an end. He can walk away on a high or stay and be remembered as someone’s whose legs have gone. Personally I’d rather we cashed in on him but if he’s prepared to stay and play cup games and a few back up cameos I wouldn’t begrudge him that.


8.) 10 Jul 2023 20:20:16
It's a 50/ 50 for me also like many of the above posts and posters. Equal number of positives and negatives for a potential departure.

I do think that he offers more off the field than he does on it, given the recruits we've signed already and with potentially more to come. But the point is, that if we hold on to him for another year in the hope that someone can adequately replace his leadership skills, what do you do if nobody appears in this coming year or the year after that? Milner situation revisited?

I remember Henderson was almost reluctantly pushed into his Captain position and he grew into it over the years. Maybe that's what we need to do now? He is leaving one day or another, after all.


9.) 10 Jul 2023 20:26:20
Henderson's played 100 games in 2 years, just at club level. He also plays most games for England. And all that in a relatively high intensity role. That's knackered him. But I don't think it's permanent.

Whatever about England, he'd have been rested more playing for us if we'd actually had players who were good enough and fit enough that they could play instead of him once in a while. Guess what? Now we have those players.

Will he be automatic first choice every game next season with Mac Allister and Szoboszlai in the squad? No. Will he still play in a lot of games, including most of the big ones? I would think so.

I don't think there'll be a problem with his performance level, with a proper pre-season under his belt, and if he starts 25-30 and makes sub appearances in another 10. Instead of playing every week, and coming off the bench the few times he doesn't start, cos Keita was too busy daydreaming.

So tl;dr, I'd keep him. Thiago and Fabinho would be on the chopping block before him if we need to 'make room' in midfield. And unless Klopp tells him he's not wanted, or Al-Ettifaq are willing to come up with big money, and the Saudi Public Investment Fund haven't touched them as far as I know, I expect he's going nowhere.


10.) 10 Jul 2023 20:35:53
Hendo’s PR team have played a blinder again.


11.) 10 Jul 2023 20:43:03
We don’t have any players who are “priceless”.
Gerrard in the past.
Salah in the past.
Van Dijk in the past.

All our players have a price.


12.) 10 Jul 2023 20:43:33
completely agree with that something red. good post.

and no Ed, there is no relationship between me and hendo. he said my love letters were creepy.

{Ed025's Note - love it Davey..


13.) 10 Jul 2023 20:51:31
I wouldn’t want him gone, not this season anyway. Experience is necessary but just not a plethora of old players. He has a role to play, just on a lesser scale. If we are overplaying him then something hasn’t worked in our new midfield set up.


14.) 10 Jul 2023 21:54:25
Keep Henderson for leadership and the Milner bit part role for now.


15.) 10 Jul 2023 22:08:25
With Davey on this one. Hendo is going nowhere esp. after his vice capt and DR leader Milner got let go which was the right decision, IMO. Moving on two captains and giants of the DR would be poor squad management and I do not see any of that happening.


16.) 10 Jul 2023 22:26:13
So captain of Liverpool football club the biggest team in the world (MY OPINION OF COURSE)

Wants to leave to play in Saudi for whoever

Not on your nelly for me

This man is needed more than ever to blood these newbies and youngsters in how to be the model professional and be a real captain

He stays too much change too quick is sometimes more damaging.


17.) 11 Jul 2023 00:05:24
Being captain of Liverpool is the pinnacle of many players careers, especially if it involves a glut of trophies.
Given the adversity Henderson overcame to lift every worthwhile club trophy going I don't see him being in a hurry to give that up for a few more shekels.
It may be a stronger argument this time next season, especially if he's starting less often. He'll still have plenty of time to pad his bank account for a few seasons. But I wouldn't be surprised to see him around for a while yet.


18.) 11 Jul 2023 01:57:03
Too much change in the midfield for me if we're letting Hendo go.

Have said it before, but many fans on here often think far too transactional about transfers. Probably the same people who sit on their moral high ground when it comes to talking about owners and player loyalty.

Henderson has plenty more in the tank and can play a key role in transitioning to the next version of ourselves. I can't see how having just Fabinho and THiago left as the experienced "Klopp midfielders" is going to be helpful for us next season. And in fact, I would go as far as to say we'd be setting ourselves up for failure again if we take this sledgehammer approach to the midfielder this summer.


19.) 11 Jul 2023 06:52:54
Davey and something red. brilliant post. Completely agree.


20.) 11 Jul 2023 12:01:35
Keep him here for 1 more season. Great example around the place no doubt and will help during some games and times of the year. Sell next year.


 

 

08 Nov 2022 20:04:46
I would be beyond shocked and not saying this is a rumour or even questioning but wouldn't Konate and Saliba be a perfect CB partnership in 2-3 years. I can always dream.

Lamborini I 9 I

{Ed014's Note - to be honest I’m not sure we need Konate but we’ll have him to rotate with Gabriel.


1.) 08 Nov 2022 20:33:03
Hello Ed014, I personally think the last thing arsenal need now is a world cup break they need continuity of the season, as breaks nearly always throw a spanner in the works somehow.

Your Ed number could come back to haunt you i. e. number 1 going into the world cup break, could also be number 4 at the end of the season?

Like ye Konate quip, though it could be also true!

{Ed014's Note - I’m honestly not worried about the World Cup break mate as it’s the same for everyone and mentally we’ve been very together.

Injuries is the luck of the draw or not for everyone.

I know a lot hope it will derail us but they’re mostly Mancs because they’re so shite.


2.) 08 Nov 2022 21:35:44
Nice one Ed014 - that made me laugh although to be fair the OP was asking for it.

Serious question for you, as you seem to have your head screwed on properly …. do you think your lot will last the pace for the entire season, particularly as you have a youngish squad and the pressure will undoubtedly mount and not be helped by the need to play two or three games a day towards the end of the season?

{Ed014's Note - I wish I could confidently say yes mate but there are a lot of things against us.

As much as I might hope that we firstly beat wolves at the weekend then come out of the World Cup unscathed and then continue this run right up to seasons end common sense says that requires a lot of stars to align.

My hope at season start was a top four finish and I’m not thinking more than that and there are so many games left even that’s not a gimme.

I’m loving how we’re playing though and they all seem really together and Arteta has started to change my opinion of him but the business end of the season is where he can truly change that.

I still have a feeling you’ll yet be in the mix and could see City, yourselves, us and Newcastle filling the top four spots.


3.) 08 Nov 2022 22:08:57
I'd start them together for France but if all fit they'll go Kounde Varane Kimpembe id imagine.


4.) 08 Nov 2022 22:10:26
Ed014: The football you have been playing has been superb and you deserve to be top of the table.

As things stand you should easily finish in the top 3, however we both know how quickly things can change.

In the meantime enjoy every Sandwich! to have beaten liverpool, spurs and chelsea shows you are going in the right direction.

{Ed014's Note - thanks mate and fingers crossed we don’t implode!

Good luck to you guys too, especially against Madrid in the UCL!


5.) 09 Nov 2022 02:02:22
ed14 - I really like what Arsenal have done. They remind me of us in the first year we pushed City close under Klopp. Trust the youth and identity being built. The worry for me (for you) is injuries, just the same as it always was for us. Losing 1 or 2 key players from that starting XI would have derailed our end of season charge. So hopefully your lot remain fit to see out the season.

{Ed014's Note - thanks mate and that’s the key, fitness, if by some miracle we can keep everyone fit then top four should be a defo.

As for overhauling City, that’s another thing all together as you know mate.

I don’t think we have a big group of guaranteed starters in the World Cup but those that are will obviously be key for us too, Partey, Saliba, Odegaard and Xhaka the latter of who is like a totally new player.


 

 

31 Aug 2022 22:03:49
Given your superstitions Ed01 you might want to hear this.

I was able to watch all our first 3 games this season. No wins.

The first game I can't watch, we beat Bournemouth 9-0

Tonight I could only watch the first half due to working a night shift. We turn it around in the 2nd half.

Don't worry, I'm picking up a shift on Saturday.

Lamborini I 9 I

{Ed001's Note - please do!}


1.) 01 Sep 2022 01:49:08
Somewhat similar situation.
When I watched tonight, we were crap.
When my stream when down Diaz rounded the keeper and nearly scored.
When I ain’t watching, we equalised. Stream came back and I watched till the 93rd min and it went bad again. Next thing I know we won the game.

So….


2.) 01 Sep 2022 02:57:32
Exact same as that.


3.) 01 Sep 2022 07:52:06
Turned off last night as was knackered and we score 2.


4.) 01 Sep 2022 09:15:23
You know what to do, lads. Sacrifices is needed.


 

 

31 Jul 2022 08:01:43
Cannot believe some of the negativity on here. We just outplayed Man City and yet still people are moaning.

Also, am I only the one who thinks Man City's goal should have been ruled out. Did Adrian not have both hands on the ball? Foden clearly fouled him.

Lamborini I 9 I

{Ed025's Note - yes your the only one..


1.) 31 Jul 2022 08:27:25
With regard to City’s goal, Adrian may have had one hand and a fingertip on the ball but it certainly wasn’t under his control to the extent the attacker had no right to play for it. It was just poor goalkeeping overall. I’ve come around to the idea that having Adrian in the squad is a great thing, as he’s clearly a huge help to incoming players and a well-liked individual, but I just hope Alisson and Kelleher are on the mend.
That said, Liverpool were excellent yesterday. City created very, very little of their own making, and were largely outplayed from start to finish.

{Ed001's Note - he is 3rd choice, you don't get a world class keeper to be third choice!}


2.) 31 Jul 2022 08:36:11
Ed, I know! I was initially in the out camp for Adrian, not being aware of what he does behind the scenes etc. Whilst I am no longer in that camp, I still hope he just isn’t needed particularly often this season.


3.) 31 Jul 2022 09:10:54
You’re not the only one who thought it was a foul. Everyone in the pub I was in also thought that. If he didn’t kick it when it was under Adrian’s control as per the following definition of control (while the ball is between his hands or between his hand and any surface (e. g. ground, own body) ) then he impeded him as he was trying to get it under control.

Guess it doesn’t really matter now but that’s my thoughts on it!


4.) 31 Jul 2022 09:52:15
The ball clearly slips through his two hands before the attacker won it. It wasn’t a foul even though initially I thought it was. That’s where var helps as no way ref could see that.


5.) 31 Jul 2022 09:53:32
Depends on which pub you were in Jonop.

LFC pub = no goal
City pub = clean goal

Because we won, happy to say that it was a clean goal at the end of the day ?.


6.) 31 Jul 2022 10:19:04
I don't think he had control of the ball when Foden poked it. Goal for me.


7.) 31 Jul 2022 11:02:35
I’ll be honest. I thought it was a foul. Easy to say weak goalkeeping but he had two hands on the ball for a split second and it was kicked out of his hand. He made the mistake of not being standing up when it happened because doesn’t the keeper usually get a free kick when they are touched while upright? Perhaps if he’d rolled around for a while that would have helped. I’m awfully cynical these days.


8.) 31 Jul 2022 11:26:33
You don’t need to have control of the ball as such. Control in the rule book includes having a hand on the ball while the ball is in contact with another surface which is what happened yesterday.


9.) 31 Jul 2022 09:51:09
With Ed25 on this one. I’ve seen it a few times from diff angles and I think it was the correct decision.


10.) 31 Jul 2022 14:15:28
Foul for me, both hands on the ball, ball on the ground.


11.) 31 Jul 2022 14:37:23
I doubt it was even considered to be looked at because VAR were focusing on the offside. If it wasn't flagged offside then I reckon it would have been spoken about a lot more.


12.) 31 Jul 2022 17:42:03
Edd001 who impressed you most yesterday? I thought our midfield looked really great and it's still very early until they hit peak form and fitness. Hendersons high press was top notch.

{Ed001's Note - Klopp, he got it right.}


13.) 31 Jul 2022 19:10:34
Ed001 thiago looks soo special. Do you think he can maintain this level for 2 plus years?

{Ed001's Note - yes, he doesn't rely on physicality so should do a few years yet.}


14.) 31 Jul 2022 21:04:28
Ed01, I thought Hendo was brilliant on the press and most importantly, in making the 3rd man runs from midfield and attacking the inside right channel hence, City’s cB’s could not pick him up. This was something Klopp complained about earlier in preseason so good to see that his words were heeded.

Also, what are your thoughts on Bobbie’s perf? I thought he was good in the press and also dropping deep to help counter City’s overload in midfield by shadowing Rodri and not letting him play freely. Cheers, man.

{Ed001's Note - the team played well as whole but this is not when it matters. They need to play with that intensity against the smaller clubs. It is easy to be up to face the reigning champs, not so easy when it is Forest or Southampton.}


15.) 01 Aug 2022 08:52:22
Agreed, ED01. We need to do this week in, week out during the season, like we did in the 19/ 20 season winning 21 of our first 22 games (one draw at Utd) . If we do that, the title will be ours, IMO.

I can think of some very successful Dutch Managers. I think ETH at Man Utd has people worried that every coach from the Dutch league will be as bad as him.

I have no idea about Slot. He could be just as bad, he could be worse or he could be amazing. He has done well in his short managerial career so far.

If he gets the job, he'll have my full support, just as anyone who we hire.

One of the differences between Barcelona (Apart from 2nd leg at home) - We played well at the Nou Camp and didn't deserve to go in to the 2nd left 3-0 down. We played really well in the first left.

Last night, we were lucky not to lose by 4 or 5.
