Guys, just seen that LFC and Klopp are in negotiations for a contract extension beyond 2024 Can anyone confirm this? It came from Paul Joyce apparently.

OliRed

{Ed002's Note - Michael Edwards has said that the club would look to persuade Klopp not to leave at the end of his contract.}


1.) 28 Apr 2022 10:06:49
I hope it happens. Would be the biggest signing in decades.


2.) 28 Apr 2022 10:15:23
Looks true his agent was at the game last night to speak with FSG afterwards. Best signing we will make if it happens.

{Ed002's Note - FSG?}


3.) 28 Apr 2022 10:28:03
Best news possible…. It’s really the biggest piece of the jigsaw…. Really hope he does extend his contract.

Only thing left then will be to extend the Kop … I know there are infrastructure issues but surely there is some way to do it?

{Ed002's Note - There is no way around the infrastructure issues and the huge additional costs the club would face from the Council.}


4.) 28 Apr 2022 10:32:46
Assuming he meant Mike Gordon Ed he was at the game last night to maybe try and convince him to stay longer.

{Ed002's Note - That is not how contract discussions are dealt with. Whilst both may well have been at the game there would not be such discussions after the match.}


5.) 28 Apr 2022 11:57:07
This could be the fastest negotiation in history:

FSG: What do you want Jurgen?

Klopp: Lifetime contract, £500k a week and free teeth whitening.

FSG: Here you go, we have one ready prepared.

Klopp: [whilst signing] So, shall we take Mo to Pret to get his sorted next?


6.) 28 Apr 2022 12:04:47
This would the best signing ever! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼.


7.) 28 Apr 2022 12:09:39
Possibly they were just meeting up for a pint after the match Ed02?

{Ed002's Note - Seems most likely - or pehaps they met during the day?}


8.) 28 Apr 2022 13:56:32
Please God, he signs an extension. 🙏🏻
This would be the best news ever.
The thought of him leaving doesn’t even bare thinking about.
YNWA.


9.) 28 Apr 2022 14:13:03
This would be fantastic. I’m not sure Klopp could do elsewhere what he’s done with Liverpool. Other clubs at his elite level simply wouldn’t afford him the time to deliver what he was granted here. Hopefully he knows that and will give us an extra 2/ 3years before retiring or taking over the German national team?

{Ed0666's Note - every club in world football would give him 2 years he’s Jurgeun F’ckin Klopp!!!


10.) 28 Apr 2022 14:37:25
But where would he go Ed0666 that’s the issue? Do you see him at Barcelona or Real because surely they are the only teams at or around our level? I don’t see him at PSG and none of the Italian clubs are that great at the moment. Doubt he’d go to Bayern really.

I’m in no way questioning the man, he’s a hero, but where is a logical step up from here? May as well carry on the good work here after bringing in the likes of Konate and Diaz to make the squad a bit younger.

{Ed0666's Note - who cares mate he’s signed a 2 year extension!! I’m
So f’ckin happy 😂😂😂


11.) 28 Apr 2022 14:58:13
He and all his assistants HAVE signed 2-year extensions! Expect an announcement soon.


12.) 28 Apr 2022 15:18:50
As long as my old mate Bobby Smythe is alive and living in Skerries Road, The Kop or Kenny Dalglish stands will not be extended. He's as Blue as his language.


13.) 28 Apr 2022 16:29:47
Wants Backing on signings, wanting Mane and Salah sorting, backroom staying on, option for longer, best contract negotiation i've seen.


14.) 28 Apr 2022 17:01:50
I bet the statue company are p. ed 😂.


15.) 28 Apr 2022 18:45:02
Clearly Klopp has an affection for pit ponies, dead dogs, flat caps and smog.

Best news ever!


16.) 29 Apr 2022 03:09:32
Well, wherever they met it looks like they are on the same page Ed02 - that might have been the shortest contract negotiation in the history of the sport.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea how long it has taken to reach agreement.}

Apparently, Peter Drury made this comment during or after the game:

"Mane and Salah were fasting. Man Utd made them feast".

Quite simply, GOATED.

OliRed

1.) 20 Apr 2022 13:56:05
Just watched a few clips of the goals with his commentary, different level to Sky.


2.) 20 Apr 2022 15:07:47
Just seen that Allison mate more passes than the Utd midfield combined. They made 50 and he made 54.

Also heard on Talksport that City reported that they had 71 injuries the physios had to work on after their 3 games against Athletico and Liverpool prior to the Semi. That works out at just over 23 injuries a game 🤣. Surely journalists or the clubs should do some research before talking such nonsense.


3.) 20 Apr 2022 15:31:24
Love Peter Drury, he's one of the best commentators around. His commentary for the Manolas goal against Barcelona still gives me chills.


4.) 20 Apr 2022 13:56:05
Just watched a few clips of the goals with his commentary, different level to Sky.

{Ed0666's Note - If anyone can conjur up and post the Drury ‘feast’ commentary I’ll be eternally greatful. I’ve heard so much about it but can’t find it. The guy is the absolute best along with Arlo White. Cheers guys.


5.) 20 Apr 2022 16:34:03
There's a video on YouTube with snippets on his commentary on Salah.
He's obviously a huge fan of our Mo!


6.) 20 Apr 2022 16:48:18
JK23 seriously, if they had 71 injuries then how didn't they forfeit the game at Webley? Also, why did they not protest to UEFA nor why weren't any players in hospital after the game? Pathetic little spoiled brats, these are.

City seem to act like the stage 9 clinger/ needy girlfriend that needs constant validation/ sympathy and coddling from her boyfriend and his buddies as if anyone else cares. So needy and pathetic, City sound like at times and frankly, it comes from their manager sometimes.

The guy was moaning in 17/ 18 cos none of his players (who won the title) won any individual awards whereas it was clear that Salah was BY FAR the best player in England if not the world at the time in that season. He whined again when Hendo won Player of the year in 19/ 20. Needy little prats, these are.


7.) 20 Apr 2022 20:49:34
Sky commentaries are at best, average
If I could afford it, I would listen to LFC’s Steve Hunter
Full red tinted with passion.


 

 

03 Apr 2022 15:29:10
Great to see Bobbie's got his legs back and is firing now cos he was outstanding vs Watford. As I always say, when Bobbie plays well, we play well overall, IMO. Special mention for Thiago who was MOTM for me while Gomez looked good overall despite being out of rhythm and sharpness. Jota annoys the heck out of me BUT took his goal brilliantly.

As for the state of affairs currently, nothing has changed. Take it one game at a time and see what happens. Vs City? As long as we avoid defeat, we are still in the running for the title with 7 to go hence, a lot of twists and turns could still happen. I'm enjoying the ride cos Im just elated that we are involved in such an exciting period cos it's utter insanity at this point. Up Da Pool!

OliRed

{Ed0666's Note - makes a change from the days under Houllier when we were out of the race at Xmas


1.) 03 Apr 2022 15:43:43
Ed666, I remember in the 2011/ 12 season, we finished 37 points behind City who won the title. There are teams who have needed that amount of points just to stay up and avoid the drop. Let that sink in for a moment, mate.

As a result, I have never taken this period under Klopp for granted cos I know what it was like just a decade ago and am fully aware that things will not always be like this. I am drinking all this in cos well, it won’t last. One more stat: Klopp coached his 250th game vs Watford. He has won 190 of them or so. Again, drink it all in, mate. Peace and Love, man.

{Ed0666's Note - imagine if klopp extended his contract? Drink that in mate!


2.) 03 Apr 2022 15:49:30
I also thought Bobby was outstanding against Watford. But this was back in October when he scored a hat trick against them.
I thought Bobby had a good first half yesterday but if that was outstanding and the performance overall was good I’d check the dodgy stream you are using.

{Ed0666's Note - literally no one played well yesterday


3.) 03 Apr 2022 16:07:02
Just to add to Oli's point, he has won 190 and he started with a team that was competing for Europa league spots. And contained the likes of Moreno and Clyne.

It definitely won't be like this forever so we have to enjoy it, I have no intention of sitting here In the future thinking I wish I enjoyed this period more then I did.

As Tyler said (yes, I can't believe I am quoting him either! ) Drink it in, we won't witness anything like this (klopp) again.


4.) 03 Apr 2022 15:57:48
Ed066 I agree mate. I thought Bobby looked hungry first half and sloppily gave up a great chance in the 2nd when we broke 3 against 3 and he dawdled on the ball and then gave Mane a poor pass.

Thiago was also good first half and was then neat and tidy 2nd half.

Great to see Gomez have a decent game and great assist.

Jota with a great finish and a few sloppy touches and passes. His run in the 2nd half through the middle was excellent and if Foster hadn’t come out so quickly Mane would have scored.

All in all though 3 points whilst remaining in first gear. Typically though City scored early which meant our short stay at the top lasted about 25 mins lol.

{Ed0666's Note - I think we got out of first gear mate but not my much. 2nd gear maybe? You know what I retract my statement there were a couple of decent performances. Ali was Ali so he was good made a brilliant save and Gomez for being played out of position had some good moments but did make a couple of defensive errors. It was great to see him back and he provided an assist which was brilliant. Let’s hope this gives him the confidence for the rest of the season. This is a game Thiago should have owned and I’m disappointed in him. Let’s hope he can stamp his authority for the rest of the campaign. Like you say tho 3 points is 3 points. I see that Salah and mane are getting some stick but you have to beat in mind the amount of football they’ve played recently, travel and it was the start of Ramadan yesterday so they weren’t eating or drinking after sunrise so they’ll need time to adapt to their eating patterns. I would honestly bench both against Benfica and give them some much needed rest. It was evident yesterday that Salah was just running on empty.


5.) 03 Apr 2022 16:09:42
Maybe Joe because he played out of position and put in a peach of a cross Ed0666?

{Ed0666's Note - yes mate I did mention that yesterday and then this morning.


6.) 03 Apr 2022 16:17:52
Are you lads sure it’s not 160 out of 250?

{Ed0666's Note - if it is well just turn the 9 upside down mate


7.) 03 Apr 2022 16:19:31
Ed066 I thought Thiago was the best of the midfield 3. I thought Hendo struggled and Jones was ok.

{Ed0666's Note - Thiago bring better than Jones and Hendo isn’t much of a compliment mate. I’ll give them a pass for yesterday because of the international break, early kick off and not training together much recently but we have to be better to win anything else this season. We haven’t been out sparkling best for a while now but that doesn’t matter as long as we keep winning. But I’m order to do that we have to play better than we have been because Man City won’t have an off day against us,


8.) 03 Apr 2022 16:27:02
Ed0666 you’ve jinxed it now mate. Watch us and City both have a shocker now and draw the game nil nil and it goes down as the worst game of the season lol.

{Ed0666's Note - City and Liverpool are always action packed bangers mate zero chance it’s a borefest.


9.) 03 Apr 2022 16:30:20
I didn't see that Ed 😎.

{Ed0666's Note - we’ll you’re 50 now and Erectile Dysfunction and poor eyesight are your new companions 😀


10.) 03 Apr 2022 16:43:13
JK23 a. k. a Mr. It’s all about opinions, I watched the game on my flat screen tv in the comfort of my home, mate (don’t know what a dodgy stream is like cos my eyes are bad enuff as they are) and I thought Bobbie was outstanding overall. That’s my opinion. You have diff one and that’s fine so why would what I saw be dodgy, exactly? Cos we disagree?

I propose you practice what you preach to others on here (not to me cos I don’t care) and respect others’ opinions instead of making snide remarks about them just cos you disagree you know, like you tell people on here to not do? Peace.

P/ S: And you are correct, it is 160 wins, not 190. Still a mad stat.

{Ed0666's Note - oh you must experience a dodgy stream once in your life Oli.


11.) 03 Apr 2022 17:01:03
My late mam was right Ed0666 it does make you go blind😉.

{Ed0666's Note - Glad you and your mam could have those kind of chats mate 😂


12.) 03 Apr 2022 17:56:05
JK, did Bobby dawdle on the ball in that play or did he really look to the right and see that Mane had not bothered to keep up? Sadio, after the glance, then realised it was on but by then it was too late.


13.) 03 Apr 2022 17:50:42
Haha I knew that would touch a nerve. Too easy to wind the oracle up.


14.) 03 Apr 2022 18:10:03
Fly I’ve just watched it back mate and Fab makes the challenge and Bobby takes the ball off him, as he dribbles to the half way line Mane is a good 10 yards behind Bobby and continues to sprint to get alongside him before Bobby over hits the pass.


15.) 03 Apr 2022 18:30:32
Oh, whoopty doo. Bobbie made a poor pass hence, he must have been poor overall BUT Jota loses the ball and wastes passes at will for long spells during games (Klopp had to hook him vs Arsenal he was that dreadful, goal notwithstanding) but that’s okay provided he scores. Sorry, my standards are WAY higher than that cos I’m worried about how useful he will be when he doesn’t score. We know the others can do more if they aren’t scoring. What is Jota offering when he doesn’t score? I’ll wait.

Also, Salah and Mane get hammered on here for having poor games EVEN when they score but Jota gets a pass for for poor play, wasting possession just cos he scores? Double standards much? Not having that. Either we have standards for everyone or we have none for nobody, IMO. Let’s not pick and choose when and who we apply standards to. Keep the same energy for everyone.


16.) 03 Apr 2022 18:37:52
🤣🤣 wow. I’m going to need a bigger boat.


17.) 03 Apr 2022 19:33:35
The one that frustrates me is Thiago. Supremely talented but the most clueless footballer tactically.
Constantly tries flicks and tricks in his own half and puts us under all kinds of pressure. Then he’ll play a decent pass and have everyone raving about him.
We were at our best with Fabs, Hendo and Gini in the engine room. Workers, ball winners who take care of the ball. With our fullbacks pushing so high we cannot afford to lose the ball cheaply in midfield but Thiago just doesn’t seem to understand that.
Then he’ll charge around trying to win it back leaving gaping holes in behind him!
As I said, supremely talented and a joy to watch at times but he has me pulling my hair out the other 90% of the time!


18.) 03 Apr 2022 20:10:05
It's only a few years back that an early kick off was almost a guarantee of dropped points, changed days indeed. To keep winning when not playing at your best is the hallmark of champions, a very admirable trait to have. Especially when the likes of Trent are left out of the team.
Players will have off days, they are human beings after all. As long as we pick up 3 points the rest is just hot air and conjecture.

{Ed0666's Note - agreed to an extent, but you can’t keep on having off days and not expected to drop points.


19.) 03 Apr 2022 20:13:28
Understand what Beckers? If only you need workhorse in the midfield why do you think klopp signed Thiago, Ox, Keita and Jones? None are workhorse.
We need one midfielder to progress with the ball and Thiago is the best in Europe by a mile. He is the only press resistant midfielder at the club. Oozes in class.
You know what you would actually turn down both Xavi and Iniesta coz you need workhorse lol.

If you as a midfielder could keep the ball against the press then you don’t need to be a workhorse. Period.


20.) 03 Apr 2022 20:29:14
Thiagos stats yesterday.

100 touches
3 chances created (joint 1st)
5 tackles (1st)
3 interceptions (1st)


21.) 04 Apr 2022 22:08:41
I understand all of that and like I said at times he’s a joy to watch but he needs to be better positionally without the ball and look after it better when in possession.
I think Klopp is trying to sign players that can do all jobs in that they will work, win and maintain possession and be creative but maintaining possession and being creative don’t go hand in hand unfortunately.
Against teams that sit in Thiago is fine but if I was to set up a team against Liverpool I’d tell my players to press him every time he’s on the ball as he will invariably do something stupid under pressure and hand you the ball in a dangerous position.
He’s so good that he doesn’t need to do it which is what is so frustrating. He needs to learn when to create and when to be more cautious because I’ve lost count of the situations he’s put us in by just being too loose on the ball.


 

 

18 Mar 2022 11:20:32
Well, looks like we got Benfica in the Q/ F and the winner of Bayern/ Villareal in the S/ F. I think that is a more than doable path to the final. Thoughts?

OliRed

1.) 18 Mar 2022 11:31:36
Benfica is a great draw. Bayern will be tough but I think I’d rather play them over 2 legs than a 1 off game. Unfortunately I feel the same way about City and Chelsea.

I’d always fancy us against Bayern, City and Chelsea but all 3 of them are also capable of beating us in a 90 min game as well though, well maybe not Chelsea so much but we’ve not beaten them in 3 lots of 90 mins this season.

I’m hoping Real get to the final and we meet them.


2.) 18 Mar 2022 11:50:15
I can see city getting wound up by athletico, its exactly the sort of team pep style hates. So I wouldn't be surprised with an all Madrid semi.

But what a tie for us, we couldn't ask for more. Its a quarter so never easy but we would of all picked them ahead of the others and with city in between the two legs compared to Athletico for City I suddenly fancy us a lot more for that game.

Time to dream chaps!


3.) 18 Mar 2022 12:44:08
I'm not ruling out villereal they could pull off a shocker, it is emery after all. I saw the draw and thought how have we been given such a lovely route to the final when we normally get the hardest possible ties. if Burnley can do something against City I will truly believe in the quad.


 

 

02 Mar 2022 11:19:08
So I've just watched the Carling Cup final back and saw the buildup to Matip's goal. So, I'm confused here. The goal was chalked off for offside by VVD. However VVD never went for the ball (Mane did from a deeper position hence, not offside) hence, VVD did not interfere with play nor got a competitive advantage so how could he have been offside? Can someone explain how on earth the goal was disallowed for an offside on VVD who literally NEVER went for the ball?

OliRed

1.) 02 Mar 2022 11:34:38
He momentarily blocked the run of a Chelsea defender.


2.) 02 Mar 2022 11:41:27
As I understand it, it's not just that Virgil was offside, it's that he was offside and tangled with a Chelsea defender (I think Chalobah) .

The logic is that either he fouled Chalobah, or prevented him from getting back to either stop the ball to Mane or stop Mane's pass to Matip.

I honestly haven't gone re-watching it since we won anyway.


3.) 02 Mar 2022 11:42:14
100% HAJI.


4.) 02 Mar 2022 11:45:50
They got it wrong plain and simple and made up with Lukaku’s goal.


5.) 02 Mar 2022 11:51:41
Virgil was in an offside position when the ball was played in and blocked off James from getting to Mane.


6.) 02 Mar 2022 12:28:28
Thanks, guys. I can understand if they called offside cos he was tangled with a Chelsea player while being in an offside position hence indeed, VVD was interfering with play hence, offside like SR said. Not sure VVD needed to do that cos Reece was never getting to Mane anyway and Rudiger went asleep at the back post (shocking, I know) . Either way, we won but just needed to understand the logic.


7.) 02 Mar 2022 12:30:04
Though if you look carefully he didn’t block the defender. The defender was in a poor position and walked in to him.


8.) 02 Mar 2022 13:26:28
1jj, I get that and there is an argument to be made as to whether there was enuff contact BUT if the refs are calling it that tight then, they need to do it for both teams which I think they did for the Lukaku offside goal. Funny enuff, the Chelsea fans are not howling about the goal that was ruled out by Matip BUT are up in arms about the Lukaku goal that based on the rules, was offside. Yet they call us victims, lol.


9.) 02 Mar 2022 13:54:52
You guys might not like this because I am American and so my qualifications here aren't what they would be if I had been trained in the UK, but until I was 35 I refereed games at a reasonably high level here, the USL, so one level below MLS-- though a pretty significant gulf in quality. I'm surely better than Kavanagh, though.

I think this offside call is correct and is consistent with the law. I think maybe it's not cool for the game that offside is called this way-- I'd prefer some leeway on body parts, like maybe your foot has to be all the way offside or something. I don't think this would lead to teams playing much deeper lines, which is the concern if you were to take away offside, that it would look like a basketball game played on two separate halves rather than one flowing field, with a bunch of long balls and less clever passing in the middle of the pitch.

I think we have a lot of legitimate grievances, but sometimes close calls that just kind of stink are correct. It's a tough one to swallow because of the circumstances, but VVD's presence does interfere with a defender who could conceivably get back and contest the first header, and VVD's position was illegal. Thus, he is correctly penalized.


10.) 02 Mar 2022 19:30:51
My take on it. they was checking for off side. clearly it wasn't as he didn't interfere with anything. As for blocking, come on worse things happen on every single corner in every single game. It should of stood for me.
Lukaku offside. we've had a few of them this season and last season.
Neither of those were as bad as the city farce.


11.) 02 Mar 2022 19:46:20
American Plastic, you may be absolutely right, but I think the main gripe most of us have is with the inconsistency of the VAR calls. You simply never know which way a call is going to be made, because the same infraction will be called differently between two sets of ref and VAR officials. I've been watching football for easily 50 years, and I am certainly no know it all in any shape or form. But things used to be so much simpler. I would watch a slow motion and I would imnmediately know what the problem was. It's no longer the case.

I seriously think that referee reviews should completely be made at normal speed. And that's it. Because that's the way the game is played and refs should judge things at the same speed. Have another look by all means, but look at it as if it was during the game.
Today they are looking at (for example) 0.8 speed or 0.5 speed, what will stop them from playing around witg replay speeds in the future? It's exactly like choosing the absolute right, split second, moment when the football leaves a player's foot when you are drawing that straight red line on offsides. It's all arbitrary, and really doesn't solve any problems. It actually creates a new set.

Hi guys. Hope you all are keeping safe. Great win for the team and we keep it moving.

I heard a stat that Klopp had garnered 500 PL points since he arrived at LFC. Such a ad stat and so I did the math.

Oct. 15/ 16 season- 48 points

16/ 17 season - 76 points

17/ 18 season - 75 points

18/ 19 season - 97 points

19/ 20 season: 99 points

20/ 21 season - 69 points

21/ 22 season - 37 points

TOTAL Points: 501 points and counting.


This is a mad stat, indeed.


Up Da Pool!

OliRed

1.) 13 Dec 2021 11:01:29
We will more than likely need 95 points this season. All to play for.


2.) 13 Dec 2021 16:51:32
Mark, that was not the point of the post. It is just show how far we have come under Klopp and this team he has built from scratch. Pls, try to keep up.


3.) 13 Dec 2021 17:52:06
It doesn’t show that at all last year we got our lowest total. You can make it say whatever you want it to say. Let’s focus on this year.

Westwood666 you are disappointed that Wilson got sold then your beef is with him, not the club. The kid was never good enuff for us and that much was clear. As for your strange comparison with Taki, you can never call him lazy nor useless nor accuse him of not working hard. Taki contributed a lot to our success this season clearly so comparing him to a lazy kid like Wilson is just poor taste, IMO.

Spot on, OMM, Flash and WDW. The Goalposts keep changing with Salah's alleged demands and if it changes so much, could it mean that nobody really knows? This question clearly never comes up.

VVVV, us not being able to compete for the world's best players has always been the reality. This is nothing new. The fact that we have been successful under Klopp is a miracle in and of itself cos that landscape has never changed. Apart from that, I agree with the rest of your post. We are where we are and we just have to deal with it.

Thanks, MKS. Based in your appraisal, Octavio would be brilliant on either side of CM but if we are keeping our powder dry for Bellingham then I don’t see a need for him esp if both Naby and Ox seem to be staying this season since they can’t be moved right now.

Ed666, Zanetti is potentially the GOAT at RB but I will always put the legendary Marcos Evangelista de Maraes a. k. a Cafu ahead of him BUT not by much. Cafu esp in his pomp at Roma, would be worth a lot more than 120m, IMO.

As for Trent, he will get the wages his play and performances deserve based on what the club can offer. As for Salah and Mane being arrogant? I don’t know what them at means or is the OP suggesting both world class players and legends have no right to demand the wages that they think their play and stature in world football deserves? Maybe the OP can clarify.

{Ed0666's Note - I think the OP was having a bad day at the office. For me Zanetti trumps Cafu because he was one hell of a defender and bought a measure of calm and security on that side of the pitch which inspired his teammates.

MKS, I have not seen him play that much and the little I have seen oh him, he has played on the right hence, my post. I don't know much about him so if you have watched him a ton then pls, let me know what he is like esp. in CM. Is he an 8? Can he play the 6 better than Hendo can if he comes in for Fab? Thanks in advance.

Ed666, the at his age, isn’t that the stop gap option you think will work then?

OliRed

{Ed0666's Note - I’d say he’s got at least 2 prime seasons in him if he signs..and I’m sure after that depending on form he might have some sell on. Maybe he is the Salah replacement? Who knows? All o know is I love the stealthy way we do business now.

Becks he can play in midfield dies not mean he will. Matip played a ton at DM yet Klopp has never picked him to play regardless of circumstance. His statement doesn’t mean much really.
