Not trying to put a downer on that result, but can people remember we only have a 3 goal lead if we score 2 in Rome.
They go through next week if they win 3 nil, clearly that isn't a 3 goal lead.
Our 5-2 lead is currently the equivalent of a 2 nil lead for now.
I'd have taken that before tonight if offered it so.

ye i think we all get that. hope the lads go to Rome confident, they should.

2.) 25 Apr 2018 02:20:36
Kev my head hurts. If we score two in Rome we have two away goals as well and we have a 5 goal lead.

3.) 25 Apr 2018 07:04:20
Best way to explain it is Liverpool 5 roma 2.5


4.) 25 Apr 2018 07:11:44
Already got this wrong on another thread! If we score 2 in Rome we have 7. Roma would need 5 just to draw I. e matching last nights result.

5.) 25 Apr 2018 11:39:21
I’m not worrying, Roma are not going to keep a clean sheet against us, they are going to have to go all out attack against us and will leave space at the back for our runners to get in behind, runners they can’t seem to handle.
It’s similar to the city game, few nervy moments but we will score, at least once, maybe twice and they won’t put more than 2 past us.

6.) 25 Apr 2018 11:45:43
however if they win 2-0 they do not go through.

so is 2.5 goal lead the right terminology we should be using?

A mate of mine who lives in Germany has told me that we had scouts watching Karim Demerbay (spelling is probably wrong) of Hoffenheim very recently.

He is a Turkish-German lad who has turned out for Germany a few times. He's very technical and has wicked left footed free kicks. Not blessed with pace but can dribble well and a pretty powerful left foot.

I remember some of his indirect free kicks caused us problems (as well as our overly high line) in the Champions League play offs.

Not sure if this is a Lallana long term replacement being looked at if true, doubt it's to replace Coutinho but we'll see.

OIrish Kev 1

1.) 09 Jan 2018 18:08:24
Kev I know exactly the guy your on about while he does stand out in his previous team I'm not sure he's what we need pal and I'm not sure how long he's been there would he have played there with Bobby?

2.) 09 Jan 2018 18:16:05
i Think we looked into him in the summer if I remember correctly but he lost his form from last season. Tbf he had a good season last year, nothing more and I’d say he is a) not what we need and b) not good enough.

Also i don’t think he will develop into a great player anytime soon and his stats (14 games, 2 goals, 1 assist) aren’t the best for a offensive midfielder.

3.) 09 Jan 2018 18:47:21
No worries guys.
Haven't seen enough of him personally, I'd be underwhelmed if we got him to tell the truth.
I could see he was quite technical and has good set pieces but after that, meh!
Would rather a more physically gifted player personally to fill a Central Midfielder role.

4.) 09 Jan 2018 17:30:27
'Not blessed with pace".
Forget it. Let's not even go there again.

Hey ed025, are you Joe Anderson in disguise? :-)

{Ed025's Note - no juicer, if i was then the blues would be in their new stadium now mate..

5.) 09 Jan 2018 19:04:40
Aren’t Everton linked with him now?

6.) 09 Jan 2018 20:08:38
Meant the alleged Barkley letter ed025, you were a touch upset about the transfer the other day. Everton have been had over there by the looks of it?

{Ed025's Note - i think its something and nothing juicer, joe seems to have a bee in his bonnet about it but i cant see what chelsea have done wrong mate..

We will almost certainly buy a new keeper this summer but I'd keep Karius in the squad and try to rebuild him behind the scenes.
He deserves that from a humane and professional point of view, not like he got sent off for an unnecessary x rated tackle.

It's an almost impossible task unfortunately because he will always over think things like with the 3rd goal last night.

Next match he's involved in, he'll be under so much scrutiny but if he can maybe be re-taught almost, he can be brought back and improved.

We get angry when players like Coutinho show us no loyalty, maybe we should show loyalty to Karius and show the Football world what YNWA really means?!

Can't wait for next season already!

OIrish Kev 1

1.) 27 May 2018 14:44:47
Don’t believe it’s humane by any means. especially going from starter to benchwarmer after the worst game of your career. I’m a Karius fan, he’s not perfect, but he improved all season and he’s only 24. I want him in goal next season. I don’t give up on players after the short amount of time they've been here.

2.) 27 May 2018 15:10:57
We have established that we are all human and make mistakes and I feel sorry for the lad but business is business we need a new keeper. Klopp has to be ruthless otherwise he can bring sentiment into it but that might in the long run end up costing him his job, which may I add I don't want.

3.) 27 May 2018 15:42:37
We all have an opinion but I genuinely wonder what will Klopp do? It will be interesting to wait and see.

4.) 27 May 2018 16:11:51
I agree with Alonso, some fans mix up sentimental value with success, this isn’t just one game lads, wise up. We were calling for a next keeper after Mignolets second season (even before that) and we’ve seen the same sort of errors from Karius. I’d keep Karius but we need a better goalie than him if we’re to challenge and win the very top honours. We need to be more cut throat.

5.) 27 May 2018 16:13:14
He will replace him or lose his job in my opinion.

We have won diddly squat since King Kenny’s team won the league cup.
Klopp won’t get another season if he doesn’t win anything next year in my opinion.

6.) 27 May 2018 17:37:48
Ron I think you are on the right track with that. The question is who could take over and do better?

7.) 27 May 2018 18:07:24
Karius made a phenomenol save to stop Ronaldo scoring last night. And a brilliant punch when benzema was ruled offside. He messed up big time. He needs to sort out his arrogance and grow up unfortunately.

8.) 27 May 2018 19:15:43
I think you may have missed my point completely TJ.

Alonso, I can agree with most of that sure.

Agreed Walter.

Prince Hendo, I agree that he seemed a bit arrogant at times, won't see that side to him for a while I'd estimate.

Ron, the only way Klopp gets sacked is if we finish in 5th or lower surely and I wouldn't call for his head necessarily even if that happened - he's improving us year on year and bringing profits in - hope he spends some of those profits wisely this window.



25 May 2018 11:44:58
Looks like those Liverpool fans who were stuck at the airport might finally get to Kiev.

Heard some fans were attacked in Kiev last night/ this morning - stay safe lads - in large groups ideally.

On another note, if Klopp wins us that final tomorrow night, I hope he is backed with all the finances he needs (within reason of course) to get in those 3 or 4 quality players to propel us into potential title contenders next season (win or lose actually), he deserves it.

I've never had more faith in one of our Managers since Kenny's first stint and he needs backing from the top now, not just nice words.

I'm not an FSG basher at all by the way, they've turned us around slowly, now they need to push the boat out a little this summer.

Enjoy tomorrow all, hope we annihilate Real and it wouldn't surprise me if we did - bring it on!

1.) 25 May 2018 12:01:57
Totally agree Kev, on every point you've made.

2.) 25 May 2018 16:19:31
I watched the pre-match press conference, i think even if i wasnt a Liverpool fan i would love Klopp, he is such a good manager and person in football today. You compared how positive he is to other managers, wish there was more around like Klopp! makes football better all round.

3.) 25 May 2018 23:58:08
Has money been the issue prior? Wonder when this narrative will end.



21 May 2018 16:01:38
Isn't it crazy the amount of sheer rubbish written on football websites or on newspapers about potential transfers?!

How has there not been a crackdown on it?
It seems to get worse year on year.
Fake news lol!

About 20 to 30 players linked to us already this summer - hilarious really!

Then the newer click bait rubbish such as - "Liverpool tie up 2nd Summer transfer already. " only to see it's an out of contract youth player leaving the club - it's actually quite desperate of these particular websites.

OIrish Kev 1

1.) 21 May 2018 16:30:13
I’ve only seen us linked with 2-3 players this summer so if you have seen 20-30 then you must be looking in the wrong places. I’m not sure that the newspapers and websites are the problem, it’s more the gullible people who fall for these transfer stories time and time again.

2.) 21 May 2018 16:51:41
Have a look at the newsnow website. Compiler of headlines and articles from everywhere. Every 15 minutes there's new rubbish or regurgitation of other rubbish. Used to be a good reference some years ago.

3.) 21 May 2018 16:52:18
It's more social media, normally one story can be traced to a single account, but because so many people have shared it it becomes 'fact' and before you know it ends up a 'sky source' just in case it happens to be correct.

4.) 21 May 2018 16:53:57
True Kev, it's barmy mate. I just can't wait till it's done and dusted so we can see who we've signed in total, I hate all the daft rumours.

5.) 21 May 2018 17:41:44
I love all the daft rumours. It's a bit of fun. I wonder how many big transfers have happened that started out as a nonsense rumour but grown and then actually happened. Can anyone think of any?

6.) 21 May 2018 17:49:07
That's exactly what I meant mate yeah - Newsnow - it used to be a great help, now it only serves the clickbait purpose.

Smeg Head,
Honestly not sure how you've only read about 2 - 3 players mate.
Butland, Donnanruma, the 2 CBs I can't spell from Newcastle and Burnley :), Nabil Fekir, Brandt, the other winger from Leverkusen, De Vrij, the youth player midfielder from Chelsea, Lemar from Monaco - do you want me to keep going?

7.) 21 May 2018 17:50:18
I’ll save you the aggro, don’t bother with anywhere else bar this mate👍👍.

8.) 21 May 2018 17:53:29
You could well be right there mate.
A colleague of mine who has over 1k followers on Twitter put up a rumour last summer that VVD would sign on last day of window and it went wild because he pretended to be a reporter for ESPN i think it was.

I think Melissa Reddy and Paul Joyce are pretty relaible on there and one guy whose name escapes me right now, other than that - I believe when I see.

Obviously the lad Macca and the Editors on here have some inside info too or are psychic at least :)

9.) 21 May 2018 18:04:27
Prince hendo,

Mario Balotelli to LFC is one I reckon mate.

Lfc hopeful,
Been coming here since about 2009 mate, always been a top site, so I agree.

10.) 21 May 2018 18:08:59
I only follow WDS on twitter, you can’t rely on anyone else 🤝.

11.) 21 May 2018 19:49:44
Kev- De Vrij has already signed with Inter and gifted them a pen to help them into the champions league place.

12.) 21 May 2018 21:53:59
Cobra, good for Inter to know that they are already getting a great return on their investment in De Vrij even tho he is yet to kick a ball for them.



20 May 2018 09:02:58
I'm an optimist, so yes please to Mr Fekir if he wants to join us.

A GK, RB or CB and DM next and I'm happy, plus replace anyone significant who leaves ideally as the squad is pretty thin.

Get this window right and next season could be quite interesting! :)

OIrish Kev 1

1.) 20 May 2018 09:18:54
Please stop saying DM. We ain't signing one anytime soon. Klopp wants a DLP, not a pure DM. And forget about CB as well. Klopp like Lovren and will keep him as VVD's partner next season.

These 4 signings will be Klopp's summer business imo.

2.) 20 May 2018 09:33:14
Agree with Buzzer, but think Butland or another keeper will join also.

3.) 20 May 2018 09:38:01
Not striker?

4.) 20 May 2018 09:48:06
Would like Reina over someone like Butland though. Would cost less and Karius could get some helpful tips from Reina on how to be the ideal sweeper keeper. Butland would just shatter the confidence of some of our talented young GKs like Grabara.

5.) 20 May 2018 12:20:02
And how is Ceballos a DLP Indian! Stop giving this lecture. We are not linked with any true DLP. Ceballos is the next Wijnaldum. Converted midfielder.

6.) 20 May 2018 12:32:02
Harry, I did not mention Ceballos anywhere in my post and at no point of time have I ever said Ceballos would be a good option for DLP. Like many, I believe Ceballos lacks the discipline and awareness to play the role and is better off as an advanced midfielder.
Would like one of Jorginho or Neves to be our DLP, not Ceballos.

7.) 20 May 2018 12:48:01
You have said Klopp wants a DLP Indian and the only midfielder we are linked with is Ceballos and this page has already established him as the successor of Alonso! The fact is we are doing what we did an year ago! Buy Wijnaldum and play him somewhere else to suit our requirements.
You are right about Ceballos. He lacks discipline and is not a good passer of the ball. He is a Lallana and Lallana itself can't find a place in our midfield. We don’t need anymore advanced midfielder.

8.) 20 May 2018 13:08:16
Hang on Harry, I thought Ceballos was the next Lallana? Now he is the next Wijnaldum?

I honestly don't believe you've ever watched him because you can't even be consistent. It's like your throwing handfuls of waste, hoping some of it will stick.

9.) 20 May 2018 13:24:27
He is totally different to Lallana and Wijnaldum. They both started as left wingers and converted to attacking midfielders.

Ceballos started as a central midfielder, and due to his versatility has covered on the left and behind a striker. He us still a midfielder by nature though.

The three strongest aspects to his game are tackling, shielding the ball, and dribbling out of tight situations. He is an unorthodox midfielder, but of all the players we've had in the last few years, the closest we've had to Ceballos was probably Joe Allen. Ceballos is essentially a superior version of Allen. In Spain, they have dubbed him the next Modric.

He can play line splitting passes and switch the play, but I admit he doesn't have the vision and passing range to loft a perfectly weighted pass in behind like a Jorginho/ Pirlo type player, or to hit a raking diagonal in behind the full back. But he defends much better than either of those guys ever have, and shields the ball better when he is pressured. Not every DLP has to be able to bend a perfect pass in behind the defence.

Ceballos will be tasked with bringing the ball out from the back with composure, and feeding one of Keita, Ox or Fekir who can then break on the opposition at pace. Klopp is building a counter pressing system. He has repeatedly called our tactics "counter pressing" in multiple interviews. He doesn't want 70% possession like City, and a pass master dictating the game. He wants to draw the opposition out, and pounce on mistakes at scintillating pace.

10.) 20 May 2018 13:24:36
Harry, we have also been linked to Jorginho and Neves. Both are DLPs. I still don't think we will be signing Ceballos. He will stay in La liga imo.

11.) 20 May 2018 13:30:09
Cmon MK Wijnaldum is an example of how we buy a player and play him somewhere whe he has hardly played before. And why do you think you are the only source for player info? Type his name on google and you get 756 sites to dig about him. Ceballos is not a Deep lying playmaker. Now do you want to play him there? That’s upto the manager. He could play him anywhere just like he played Milner and Wijnaldum in the holding role. Would he do a job? Not as good as someone who actually play there. Do you want to repeat the henderosn saga for another year?
I was reffering to Indian who claims we are after a DLP. I don’t know who! Do you know? We are not after any DLP. We are after Ceballos! Please stop calling him a DLP.

12.) 20 May 2018 14:17:09

Ceballos Shields the defense!
No he doesn’t MK. That is just a wish! His strength ( a few you have mentiond while a few you are exaggerating ) lie s elsewhere.

Our midfield three should be
Kieta - Fekir - Holding mid / DLP / DM / Positoonaly sound CM / Old school Souness / Alonso.



13 May 2018 16:54:07
Well done boys!
Top 4 secured.

As a side thought, wouldn't say no to Fabianski from Swansea if Mignolet leaves and Karius keeps the number 1 role.

Cannot wait for the 26th now!

Exactly Ed.
I feel he needs 30 or so games before we see where he's going in his career.
I certainly wouldn't rush him.
He could be a very useful backup for our wingers in the second half of next season and then assess him from there again.
With any luck, he'll make it.
Certainly I'm jealous of the Welsh that he's one of them :)

Been championing this young man for a long time now, he needs games in a senior team at Championship club level or higher - he has scored at every level now except Premier League level (hasn't played in the Prem. yet), which shows he definitely has something about him, not sure what exactly your problem is with him phil_LFC but I have watched this kid play since he came into the under 16's and I can tell you right now he has a lot of potential.

Of course Messi and Salah are better one footed players, but they are better one footed players than 99.99999% of the world's population that has ever walked the Earth.

Wilson has just turned 21, bags of potential, scored at each level he has been tried at, offered a new contract by Klopp (to both preserve his selling fee if he fails, which he hasn't as yet and keep him tied to us if he did well, which he has so far) - I mean, what more can you ask of a young, small (physically) player, who has Salah playing off the chart in his preferred position in the first team right now?

Wilson scored goals for fun in the under 23's while more established players like Danny Ings (Ings playing in more of a central attacking position) hasn't hit the net nearly as regularly.

Make no mistake, this Wilson kid has something very naturally special about him, not forced or coached, mark my words on that - he needs exposure to top football and get his game consistently for 12 to 18 months, then we'll see his potential being fulfilled, or lost if he doesn't continue to knuckle down and keep working his socks off.

OIrish Kev 1

{Ed025's Note - its all about timing kev, if hes put in and things dont go well then his confidence could be shot never to return, when the time is right (only klopp can decide that) he should be given a spell on the bench and brought on if the game is won or else be given a shot in the league cup side or play if the opposition is weak, its a tough call mate but if hes never given his chance then we will never know..

You don't need to get involved with something you clearly were nothing to do with, so don't try to talk for me please.

If you're happy to have that idiot who threatened Karius linked to you in a guilty before innocent situation, that's your choice but not mine.

Wasn't talking to you in the first place and won't be after this comment either, you and I disagree on many things and I would rather avoid wasting time discussing this with you as I'm 100% not accepting the above, no offense, take care.

No true fan or normal human being makes death threats.

Please do not link this to Liverpool 'fans', because unless you can point out these faceless fools, it's only spreading false information, until they are identified (which they haven't been yet), apprehended and charged.

As things stand, this is nothing to do with Liverpool supporters, for all we know it could be a Barca, Chelsea, Spurs, Everton or Skonto Riga fan.
