I hear we are interested in Joao Felix and I'm surprised it's taken this long.

This is the most exciting deadline day since the time we 'almost' signed Konoplyanka.

konoplyanka would have threw his boot at demba ba from the bench, no doubt in my mind.

Hi All.
Is Mandi from Betis still being considered? Apparently his contact is up at the end of the season.

Random Red

{Ed002's Note - Aissa Mandi (CB) Real Betis CB who Newcastle have an interest in. West Ham were interested 18 months ago but not convinced, and instead opted for young prospect Goncalo Cardoso. Real Betis would sell at the right price. For Liverpool he would be a Lovren replacement and financially perhaps using Nathanial Phillips makes more sense, particularly given he is 29 and not HG. Fenerbahce have had talks with Real Betis. Another who would be off the AFCON and and I am not aware of approach to his club by Liverpool. Makes no sense.}

1.) 28 Dec 2020 16:15:49
Phillips is far better than Mandi.

2.) 30 Dec 2020 14:24:26
We aren’t using Philips though for some reason, Williams is favoured over him and no one can understand why. Williams has potential but he’s a liability at the moment and with the league being on a knife edge we need to play the better players for every position. Phillips has shown to be far more competent and yet can’t get a look in, so we need a CB in jan.



28 Jun 2013 20:56:11
Real Madrid have shifted their interest from Cavani to Suarez because they feel the Napoli man is too expensive and doesn't represent as much value for money as his compatriot {Ed002's Note -Real Madrid has another player in mind right now - there is some distance to go with their shopping.}

Ed01, is it possible that the significant demands placed on our players and our midfield in particularly could be one of the reasons our players, and midfield especially, tend to have these niggling injuries.

Random Red

{Ed001's Note - it is possible but highly unlikely as most of them have always picked up niggles throughout their career. Why is it always people look to blame the way we play when none of the players have ever shown any different playing different styles?}

1.) 02 Sep 2022 14:52:43
Injuries are just luck or lack of. These players are athletes and the movements they do on the pitch they will do thousands of times throughout the season be it on the pitch or training ground.

Unfortunately 999 times of doing the movement nothing happens and then once a muscle/ tendon / ligament / cartilage etc might pull or tear in a one off incident. Genetics and pain threshold will also play a part. Behind every main (primary) muscle group you will have support muscle groups and sometimes genetically these are stronger in some players and others hence why some appear no always pick up niggles and others never.

Then you have the impact injuries which can happen to anyone at any given time.

2.) 02 Sep 2022 15:28:00
I would say not warming up, down and stretching would also cause injures JK23.

3.) 02 Sep 2022 15:28:57
We have a selection of midfielders all of which are injury prone. I don’t class Elliot and Carvalho in that camp so hopefully they are a big part of the solution.

4.) 02 Sep 2022 16:37:04
Longthing of course warming up / stretching and flushing the blood out in a cool down is extremely important.

And I’d be shocked if the S&C coaches and physios aren’t doing these to the finer detail every day in training and pre and post match.

Amateur footballers might stretch a couple of times a week (if that) and not get any muscle pulls or tears and then you have some pro athletes who do it numerous times a day weekly and still get pulls and tears.

You’ll probably point out that the pro game is faster which it is but muscles and injuries don’t care about that and if they did then the average man and woman wouldn’t ever get any pulls or tears themselves.

5.) 02 Sep 2022 18:59:47
Old retired now professional footballers would often say good players never get injured, the more demanding modern football of recent years can now park that for good, injuries are now more down to the luck of the draw.

Some players would often smoke in the changing rooms during half time in the old days, and managers and trainers, i was watching old footage of the when LFC won the FA for the first time and Joe Fagan was having a fag during the actual game sitting on the trainers bench alongside Sir Bob and Shanks.

He was also interviewed after a match once and had a fag lit up, when games finished in the old days players would often meet straight after the match for a few jars, that is now frowned upon. How times have changed?

Some players stay injury prone during their careers, we all know who they are, sometimes ye past is also your future with regard to injuries, think the best way to avoid injuries is cross ye fingers.

That's why I can't see Melo starting tomorrow as we now have five games in fifteen days (two of which are CL group games), why throw him in at the deep end his fitness has to be assessed first? JK will ease him in gradually. Mind you when you sign someone everyone declares themself fit all of a sudden, iwonder why?

6.) 02 Sep 2022 23:39:39
Injury is part of football and every contact sport for that matter. One could get injured in a no contact drill. Ask Ruud Van Nistelrooy. In fact, a player could get injured by dropping his aftershave bottle on his toe and breaking it. Just ask Spain GK Santiago Canizares how he missed the 2002 WC. No need to start overthinking things like it’s complicated. It’s part of the game.

Its crazy how as admirable as their performances were last season, Rhys and Nat are nowhere near the 1st team and rightfully so.

Random Red

1.) 16 Aug 2021 00:00:27
I'm sorry RR but there is not need for that statement. The two lad's played out of there skin too get too 3rd. I'm sorry for them I really am but let's go easy on them. They have dome themselves and the club proud.

2.) 16 Aug 2021 00:21:46
Seems a really unnecessary dig at two players that stepped up when we really needed them. Regardless of whether they have a future HERE or not I hope that based on those performances they can go on to have careers they're happy with.

3.) 16 Aug 2021 00:24:37
"Rightfully so"? Rarely can two words reveal so little humility as these. Both gave it their all and I'm grateful they did.

{Ed0666's Note - I think they were probably the main reasons we got top 4 last season. They defended like trojans in the run in. When United bombarded us at Old Trafford I still don’t know how we didn’t cave? Oh yes I do Williams & Philips that’s how.

4.) 16 Aug 2021 00:44:29
Those boys played their hearts out and saw us through a tricky period, if they were needed right now, I’d be more than happy to see them as they don’t shirk, they don’t go hiding and if they made mistakes. they learnt from those mistakes they made. Good honest professionals, Williams and Phillips came on immensely through getting games, their approach was more agricultural than sophisticated, but it was effective. I know who I’d want in the trenches beside me and they’d be near top of the list for their heart and will to succeed.

5.) 16 Aug 2021 03:06:41
I'm actually wondering what the point of that opening statement is? By definition, if you make it onto the field in a EPL game you are technically in the first team, no matter for how short or long a time. You can argue about their skills and technical gifts as much as you want, but the facts are there.

6.) 16 Aug 2021 07:18:30
Those kids played their arsed off and never backed down and remember, we had to play three of our last four away from home at UTD, WBA and Burnley and like men, they showed up and showed out. I will always be grateful to them for the huge things they did. Whether they have a future with us? I don’t know and that’s football cos it’s not as if they are better than the ones ahead of them cos well, they’re not. We shall see.

7.) 16 Aug 2021 09:39:10
I think the poster is trying to point to the strength of our players that have returned.

Yeh, don't think it was meant as an"attack"lads!

United, not too long ago, got a penalty AFTER the final whistle. The game was over, yet United took their penalty. Virgil got cut in half after an offside call, and that was that? How does this work?

United didn't get a penny after the ft whistle. The incident happened during the game.

2.) 17 Oct 2020 18:09:56
Yes they did as the ref blew for full time then var awarded the penalty.

3.) 17 Oct 2020 18:25:48
The whistle for full time went, and then a VAR decision came about after the game as far as I remember.

4.) 17 Oct 2020 19:28:36
But the incident happened during the game. Virgil got done after the offside call.

In Klopp's 1st season we finished 8th with a total of 60 pts.
This season we have amassed 61 pts from 21 games.

OP, this is why I keep pinching myself as to what I am currently witnessing in real time. At the rate we are going we could just accomplish the greatest single season ever recorded in English/ European club football history. Drinking it in, lads! We are witnessing monumental greatness like one that may never be equaled for a long time esp. in England.

Gakpo and Diaz are far better players than Darwin. I agree with Ron, what are his strengths exactly? He can't dribble, he can't finish, his touch is abysmal. He can pick a pass but he often makes the strangest decisions when he has the ball.

Failing to win anything at Bayern is terrible on your record. Tuchel and Julians stock has fallen considerably in my eyes.

Coutinho was a great player and when he left us he was at the time the second best player for the Selecao. Absolutely gutted when he left.

Point taken regarding Walker but Rashford literally just gave up against him so he can't be that bad.

Jarell isn't better than Matip but he definitely shows more promise than Williams and Philips.
