Hi Ed02, I know that Man Utd have scouted Odilon Kossounou Kouakou, the right-sided CB from Leverkusen. and allegedly he is a favoured target of Slot. It wouldn't be a surprise, given how solid he has been for them, the positions in defence he can cover and how injury free he remains. Is he a realistic target for any team and do we have him on our radar?

Reynard

{Ed002's Note - Odilon Kossounou (CB/RB) With Tapsoba, Tah and Hincapie all attracting attention Bayer Leverkusen will not want to lose Kossounou as well. Versatility to play at both CB and RB and has regularly attacted scouts from both Manchester sides and Real Sociedad, who may be forced to replace Robin Le Normand. Liverpool scouts may have noticed him when watching another Bayer Leverkusen player - but they have preferred options.}


1.) 20 May 2024 08:30:58
Hi Ed,
With the amount of defenders Liverpool are scouting and “interested” in,
Do you see any possibility where Liverpool sign 2 defenders this summer. I think we need two cbs, 1 of which is versatile enough to cover rb too.

Thank you in advance as always,
Your information is amazing. I can’t wait for the summer to see what Liverpool do, and to know about in advance thanks to you!

{Ed002's Note - If one of the others (van Dijk or Konate) were to leave, then yes. But with Quansah emerging and even with Matip and quite possibly Joe Gomez departing, the club could look to Pacho staying in Frankfurt on loan before replacing van Dijk and giving Sepp van den Berg a shot in pre-season. Joe Gomez' agent continues to talk with Michael Emenalo. Other fringe players like Koumetio and Nat Phillips will be sold in the summer.}


2.) 20 May 2024 09:35:45
Thanks, Ed002! And sorry for short-changing you a 0 in my initial comment, lol.


3.) 20 May 2024 09:38:49
Thanks Ed.
If Gomez were to leave along with Matip. 2cbs would definitely be needed as Konate cannot be trusted with his injury record.

{Ed002's Note - So you don't want van den Berg to get a chance then?}


4.) 20 May 2024 10:46:34
I thought you had said a few months ago he’ll be sold. Perhaps I misread.
I guess with a change of manager he might get his chance.


5.) 20 May 2024 10:47:06
I’d go into next season with

RB: Trent/ Bradley
RCB: New signing/ Konate
LCB: van Dijk/ Quansah
LB: Robertson/ Beck

Gomez can cover every position.


6.) 20 May 2024 11:31:29
Ed, you did say that Liv is still looking to add a DM midfielder this summer with Koopmeiners being first choice. With the amount of midfielders at the club right now plus the youngsters that coming through, are we looking to sell any of our senior midfielders at the club?

{Ed002's Note - Thiago will be leaving and the club will be worried about losing Mac Allister in 2025. They have looked at some versatile option who can play both CM and DM options. Endo is in his 30s but has another 3 years on his contract. Clark may get a loan - the new coach will look at him in pre-season.}


7.) 20 May 2024 11:53:34
We’d be daft not to give Sepp a chance. He’s statistically the best under 23 defender in Germany this season ahead of Pacho and Hincapie, he’s had a great season in a team who have struggled and he’s very highly regarded in Germany (its easily findable on whoscored), I think he’d excel for us under Slot.


8.) 20 May 2024 12:19:34
Alexis buyout clause kicks in next season? If rumours of a 60m buyout are true, he is surely destined for Barcelona or real.

{Ed002's Note - There is no buy out clause on the Transfer Matching System. He may have a separate agreement with the club - I don't know.}


9.) 20 May 2024 13:05:00
Ed002, where is it Mac Allister wants to go next summer?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware he does want to go but Real Madrid have him on their list for next year.}


10.) 20 May 2024 13:44:06
The only scenario that Real Madrid can have Macca is one whereby we can take our pick from Tchouameni, Camavinga or Valverde.


11.) 20 May 2024 14:41:46
I think it'd be sad to see JG go to the Saudi league - he'd be first choice for most teams in the PL, only 27 (in a few days) and I still think he can play a massive role for us.


12.) 20 May 2024 15:28:29
Interesting Ed regarding the Macca on Madrid list for 2025. Just curious Ed, how far do clubs really plan their transfer stuff? Do clubs really planning their transfer 1 or 2 years early?

{Ed002's Note - Clubs maintain a changing list of players they are interested in. For 2025 Mac Allister is on their list and they could try and persuade Alexander-Arnold's agent to have hisclient run down his contract.}


13.) 20 May 2024 19:35:56
Regardless of whether Mac Allister leaves, we should be lining Adam Wharton up for 2025.


14.) 20 May 2024 22:02:16
Wonder if we become a 'selling club" again.? Would be good to have that perception I think.


 

 

10 Aug 2023 11:11:19
Just to annoy our fans a bit more. Al Ahli have allegedly put in a £12m bid for Thiago early this morning.

Reynard

1.) 10 Aug 2023 11:16:01
Sorry. apparently it was £10.3m.


2.) 10 Aug 2023 11:20:57
Hoping Al Pacino put in a bid for Pep Lijnders.


3.) 10 Aug 2023 11:21:11
Sell him sure f#%# it.


4.) 10 Aug 2023 11:23:24
I'd ask them to make it £15m and then snatch their hands off.


5.) 10 Aug 2023 11:26:10
Being reported in L’Équipe.


6.) 10 Aug 2023 11:27:42
Can't wait to go into the new season playing a 3-1-3 formation.


7.) 10 Aug 2023 11:37:49
That does not annoy me one little bit. Quite the contrary.


8.) 10 Aug 2023 11:25:57
Madness is taking place. according to Matt Law, Liverpool has outbid Chelsea for Moises Caicedo. I doubt it but at least it's entertaining me today, lol.


9.) 10 Aug 2023 11:35:23
Add that to the Caicedo pot.


10.) 10 Aug 2023 11:36:48
Get ready for the melt down.


11.) 10 Aug 2023 11:34:35
I mean think about the poor physios.

We’ve lost Keita and Ox. If we lose Thiago as well the poor guys will be out of a job.


12.) 10 Aug 2023 11:44:58
There is no taking away that Thiago is a great player. However, i would sell him as he is never fit.


13.) 10 Aug 2023 12:00:06
If true, we should cash in Thiago also. It is better than letting him go on free next year.

The midfield transformtion will be complete. Quite a achievement for Jorg in such a short time.

We can get some more attaching players like Viega. or thurham or Barella. I don't mind if we miss on defensive midfield. let's concentrate on what we do best. attack.

like Bazball. similar to Brendanball.


14.) 10 Aug 2023 12:05:28
Bloody have him for me. Great when fit. But let's be honest, how often is that. been daniel sturridge was fit more than him. Just another so called world class player we've been carrying. Wages would be high surely.


15.) 10 Aug 2023 12:08:17
Thiago has stated he is not interested. If anything occurs it will be because the club is motivating it rather than Thiago.


16.) 10 Aug 2023 12:30:06
Wassa-lfc, more salary off the wage bill if physics go too ?.


 

 

13 Jul 2023 20:03:17
Fabinho Sold.

Reynard

1.) 13 Jul 2023 20:17:03
Wow mate that was quick.


2.) 13 Jul 2023 20:18:35
Not yet he isn't.


3.) 13 Jul 2023 20:28:16
He is sold.


4.) 13 Jul 2023 20:37:38
Not until the club announce it, he isn’t.


5.) 13 Jul 2023 20:40:30
Personal terms have been agreed, no agreement for transfer fee yet. He has not been sold.


6.) 13 Jul 2023 20:40:52
To who Reynard?


7.) 13 Jul 2023 20:43:56
To who, and for how much?


8.) 13 Jul 2023 20:58:04
Where have you seen this Reynard?


9.) 13 Jul 2023 21:05:56
No info on the price but was told by a reliable journalist friend that the club have accepted an offer from Al-Ittihad. I might have jumped the gun but I'd be surprised if it isn't announced in the next 24 hours. I suppose the club might be working heavily on a replacement before any announcement.


10.) 13 Jul 2023 21:08:26
He hasn't seen it anywhere, because it's simply not true.


11.) 13 Jul 2023 21:17:54
And we thought his signing was done quick.


12.) 13 Jul 2023 21:47:11
It’s on the echo, a bud has been mooted for days so maybe it’s true? Looks like the midfield revamp is turning into more of a massacre.


13.) 13 Jul 2023 22:38:04
It's on Fabrizio Romanos twitter feed. that's his reliable journalist friend.


14.) 13 Jul 2023 22:40:57
Llorente in?


15.) 13 Jul 2023 22:43:43
If Hendo, Fabinho and/ or Thiago exits came to fruition and Liverpool lacked experience and leadership, I wonder if (as an example) a player such as Wijnaldum becomes an option? As he is one who knows the Liverpool way, I would have thought he could be an excellent squad option if affordable. However, as a counterpoint to the excitement for 'cash' for our experienced players, I wonder if the acquisition of similar squad options are going to be further challenged and limited by a new cash rich league being established in Saudi Arabia. Current opportunities could pose a longer term issue given the race to the gulf this summer.


16.) 13 Jul 2023 23:01:54
We can’t replace Fabinho with Wijnaldum, when we haven’t yet replaced Wijnaldum ?.


17.) 13 Jul 2023 23:22:57
So any two of,

Llorente / Thuram / Lavia with Trent, Szoboszlai and Mac Allister

vs

Hendo, Fabs, Thiago, Millie, Naby, Ox ….

Add Baj, Curtis and Harvey to bth - which would people prefer for the 23 / 24 season?


18.) 14 Jul 2023 00:04:40
I would just like to go on the record and say on the whole, Fabinho was superb for liverpool fc.

He did everything that was required, was a massive part of our trophy winning period and paid off his transfer fee with his performances.

Thank you Fabinho! i will never forget that screamer vs Man City and how reliable he was from the penalty spot.


19.) 14 Jul 2023 08:39:03
Great move for Fabinho if true and it would be great business for LFC.

There is a rumour that it could be 40M incoming for LFC, I personally doubt Hendo will leave mind you, so that will leave Jones, Elliot, Hendo, MacAllister and Trent as experienced midfield options with Baj and Sobo as the lesser experienced players.

I would not be surprised if Fabs leaves and someone arrives immediately.

Love how LFC are mastering transfers.


 

 

30 Jun 2023 11:33:26
Dominik Szoboszlai transfer to Liverpool to be completed within the next 12 hours. The player wants the move but things depend on the two clubs agreeing on a payment schedule.

Reynard

1.) 30 Jun 2023 11:49:34
Nice to see the old school “private jet’ from Liverpool to Germany yesterday afternoon …. Don’t anybody ruin it for them by mentioning Carvalho’s medical….


2.) 30 Jun 2023 12:20:20
Have to say that this one has come out of nowhere.

Looks and sounds a good player, though (can't honestly say that I've seen an awful lot of him, aside from a couple of games) .

I hope we can get this over the line, though. Would be good to get a couple in and ready for pre-season, if possible.


3.) 30 Jun 2023 12:39:53
I hope I'm wrong but its so FSG to come in on the last day of a players fixed release clause. Fail with the attempt and, say at least we tried.


4.) 30 Jun 2023 12:51:10
We were talking to his reps on Monday. If we sign him today will you be back on to apologise for having a random dig at the club tomorrow?


5.) 30 Jun 2023 13:08:26
I've never understood that sort of thing. What benefit is it to the club to appear to be going for players and just not getting them?

Does very little for the image of the club, does it?

There is always the chance that we just don't reach an agreement with RBL - like ED002 said, they're going to be pretty hesitant to sell another player after losing Nkunku and looking likely to lose Gvardiol. Plus, RBL aren't really in a position where they need/ want to sell.


6.) 30 Jun 2023 13:26:33
FSG does not pick targets, negotiate with said targets nor succeed or fail in the process. Give it a rest now.


7.) 30 Jun 2023 13:53:48
Lfc, fsg does not do the transfers,


8.) 30 Jun 2023 15:10:27
Is he actually good? his stats look mediocre, and he somehow picked up 2 red cards this season, which is heavily worrying.


9.) 30 Jun 2023 16:06:36
He's young, done well in a competitive league, plays a variety of positions and seems to be a bit different to what we already have.

Plus, ED002 did say earlier that he's known to be an intelligent guy.

As I said earlier, I've probably only seen him play a couple of times and wasn't really paying much attention to him specifically, but he looks technically very proficient.

At the end of the day, he's not quite an obvious starter in the way that Alexis Mac is, but he has every bit the same chance of taking a place in the first 11 as a Thuram or Kone, right?

I know people will say that he's obviously not the same level at this moment in time, but I'd hope his adaptability will give him a great chance of really helping out the team in the same way as Gakpo did.


 

 

11 May 2023 19:35:18
Confirmed - Jorg Schmadtke of Wolfsburg has agreed to take up the job at Liverpool and will now be working closely with Klopp on recruitment ahead of the transfer window this summer. I am very surprised but hope it proves to be a great move.

Reynard

1.) 11 May 2023 20:35:57
Not until the club announce it.


2.) 11 May 2023 22:32:10
Why would klopp want to work with a guy that falls out with managers an players? He must know how to handle the guy although he looks an angry sod.


3.) 11 May 2023 22:58:27
Maybe we should only hire a Sporting Director that looks happy all the time, if that is so important to you . Lenny Henry is always smiling, he might be a good appointment.


4.) 11 May 2023 23:12:34
I like my sporting directors to smile and look happy its my little nugget of joy in life .


5.) 12 May 2023 00:09:22
I read an article a couple of days written by a German ex-player (sorry but I can’t remember who) that had played for Schmadtke and had worked with him a a coaching capacity a bit later on. the guy was positive - he said that Scmadtke knew his stuff and that he had a good sense of humour although he also said that not everybody got the humour. Given it’s one German talking about another German I don’t think it would be slapstick humour but I have to say the impression that was given by somebody who actually knows the fella was that he’s a decent bloke who knows his stuff.

I saw a comment attributed to Klopp that he has know Schmadtke for years (from back in the day when a young Norbert was trying to get a playing contract ) and he seems to have a lot of respect for Schmadtke too.

I assume that, as Schmadtke retired at the start of the year, that Klopp will have met JS on the Big Dipper at Blackpool a few times since, safe in the knowledge that he is safe from gossips talking about tapping up.


6.) 12 May 2023 07:47:29
So talking Schmack will be more relevant at the Press conference.

I'm posting this mainly because you couldn't write it and it made me chuckle.

Thiago picked up an injury against Arsenal and will be out for a few weeks.

Reynard

1.) 08 Feb 2024 12:24:17
Surely not?! One of my favourite players but if that’s true it’s a joke.


2.) 08 Feb 2024 12:39:24
Well I’m gutted. Was looking forward to seeing him play before probably leaving in the summer. He’s a glorious player to watch but his body just can’t seem to sustain the action. At least we saw flashes of his brilliance. We’ll save a few quid that hopefully goes towards younger, fitter players. Will miss him though.


3.) 08 Feb 2024 12:43:55
I was one of those who initially defended this signing because he's a quality player - when fit. Ultimately it's turned out to be a costly mistake unfortunately.


4.) 08 Feb 2024 14:24:03
Johnny197, Love Thiago to death BUT it's getting really hard right now. I like you, defended his signing cos when he was fit for a couple of spells, he quite simply made us better. The guy ran a clinic in his debut vs Chelsea away, was critical to our finishing strong to finish strong in the run in in 20/ 21 and 21/ 22. Will never forget the clinic Thiago ran vs City in the FAC semis at Wembley. Absolute class, IMO.

That said, it's tough to see him this way and really, we all knew he would leave this summer anyway so at this point, not sure it matters right now esp. since we have enuff cover for him in that position. It is what it is.


5.) 08 Feb 2024 15:01:54
Impressive Improvement! Was expecting him to be injured during warm up but he did actually made a substitute appearance against Arsenal.


6.) 08 Feb 2024 15:34:33
Thiago pound for pound is one of Liverpool’s worst ever signings. Has cost the club £100m.


7.) 08 Feb 2024 15:35:06
Great player but unfortunately made of glass a bit like Fabio Aurelio.


8.) 08 Feb 2024 15:45:05
Saudi might suit him now. Either that or retire.


9.) 08 Feb 2024 15:59:17
Mark where did you get 100 mill from mate?


10.) 08 Feb 2024 16:00:06
Surprise, surprise!


11.) 08 Feb 2024 16:01:14
How?! How on earth do you suffer a muscle injury playeing for 8 mins. he's had months, not weeks, months of rehab and training. Are we seriously meant to believe that in all that time he didn't do anything that he He did against Arsenal, which was jog around and pass to their players for 8 mins. Its a joke . And no one give me that " you can't replicate game conditions in training" rubbish, he literally jogged around the pitch and made a few passes. he's stealing a living and its a disgrace . Surely they should just scan his body in the CT scanner top to bottom and see if there's any more muscles about to injury. This is a farce now and it's seriously smacking of theatre and make believe. No one gets injured jogging around for 8 mins after rehabbing for 10 months. Utter bull.


12.) 08 Feb 2024 16:07:19
I know you love him JK and always stuck up for up. It might be nearer £80m, I will concede that.
His wages have been ridiculous though considering the games he has missed. Was never a PL player for me. Brilliant in Germany.


13.) 08 Feb 2024 16:34:10
Mark I’m not trying to stick up for him mate I only asked where you got 100 mill from. It’s more closer to 60 mill as he’s on 10 mill a year and 20 mill transfer fee.


14.) 08 Feb 2024 16:48:02
There will be all sorts of agents fees, various bonuses etc. Did you do well in the ballot?


15.) 08 Feb 2024 17:11:44
Yes mate I’ve got Luton and Sheff Utd and got burnely sat and my name in the hat with my franchise for City, Brighton and palace.

Also guaranteed home Europa as we watched the 3 group games.

Did you enter the ballots mate?


16.) 08 Feb 2024 17:27:47
Europa was a great way to build credit but unfortunately I had no joy on that front. But we got Palace tickets and we should get Brighton as well. So better than usual ?.


17.) 08 Feb 2024 17:29:33
Good enough player in the right team but that was never ours. I mean great in the highlight reels for flicks and tricks but totally infective in an industrious midfield. Not too many goals or assists and certainly didn’t “ unlock those stubborn defences “ . I believe some tried to justify it by him giving the assist before the assist. Premier League was never for him, when fit . Be great in a 7 aside game ?.


18.) 08 Feb 2024 18:41:19
Not having a go but surely one of the criteria that allows a player to be considered ‘great’ is that he actually plays games regularly. And performs consistently well year in year out.

A skilful footballer when he was fit but the ship has sailed. The money spent on Thiago and Keita was, with hindsight, an immense waste. We should have saved it and got Mbappe in on a six month contract ?.


19.) 08 Feb 2024 18:55:16
Thiago is a quality footballer but LFC did not do their full investigation on him properly he was injury prone at Barcelona and Bayern Munich so why would he be different at LFC.

Due to whoever at the club not doing their job we will have to just pay the lad till he leaves in the summer .


20.) 08 Feb 2024 20:19:37
Pretty sure Thiago isn’t trying to get injured.
For his sake hope he gets his body together and gets a move to a warmer climate, maybe a slower league.


21.) 08 Feb 2024 20:21:27
His wages and what he cost are irrelevant to me, we don’t pay him so why are we even trying to guess what he’s cost the club?

The thing I’m bothered about is what he does on the pitch and to be honest he’s not done much even when fit. Those that read my posts will know I’ll normally support our players to the hilt, I was even known to stick up for Keita when everyone wanted to drown him in the Mersey.

Thiago is just a player that I never warmed to. He came in under the label of the best midfielder in the world and has done nothing but strut about trying to show how great he is whilst not affecting games very often at all.

He’s full of flicks and those irritating ball rolls with the sole of his boot instead of just getting on with his game and trying to actually make us a better team. He’s more interested in his YouTube showreel than us winning games.

Even against Arsenal on Sunday he’s come on, tried a no look pass inside his own half which went straight to an Arsenal player then just disappeared for the rest of the game.

He’s just not for me. Came in thinking he’s better than everyone and never tried to adapt to our style. The definition of a luxury player and a total passenger most of the time.


22.) 08 Feb 2024 20:29:57
True what you say tbf.


23.) 08 Feb 2024 20:30:52
Over 41,000,000 wages for 76 league apps over 4 years. Up there with Kieta for one of the worst signings in our history.


24.) 08 Feb 2024 20:57:00
Beckers pecker, given that you can read minds can you tell me what I am thinking right now?


25.) 08 Feb 2024 21:09:13
You are thinking you are really funny and clever for sending that post I would imagine Thunderbird.


26.) 08 Feb 2024 23:12:21
Actually I was thinking I am better than you. I guess those mind reading powers only work when you want them to.


27.) 09 Feb 2024 01:16:48
Great player, doesn’t really fit in the premier league but certainly does in European competitions.

His value extends to off the pitch. I’m certain he’s helped develop the younger midfielders at our club.

He’s helped Bajcetic and Curtis Jones.

We had Milner, Hendo and Thiago - that’s helped develop a lot of our youngsters to learn off such great professionals.

Hope he gets well and gets a good club.


28.) 09 Feb 2024 05:36:49
@BP, not sure anybody said we had to worry about how much the club paid for a player or what his wages are.

What I said was that, with hindsight, a giant waste of money and in these days of financial probity it is prudent to not throw £100m plus away for such a paltry return. I’m fairly sure that there would be ‘chatter’ if we fell foul of the financial rules though.


29.) 09 Feb 2024 07:52:18
Won’t be long til the halftime shows creep in and the prices go up and us normal working class are priced out of even attending a game . Atmospheres will decline . I love football and I love the reds but I’m getting fed up with the game .
They can push through new laws in no time but can’t punish the cheating gits I just think game is finished and is beyond help . Refs are deciding outcomes of games through stupidity
We now have ref watch and micd up to try justify the incompetence of the refs . More and more games at the top level coincides with more injuries to players than ever in search of more money while the standard of the football declines I just think the game is now on a path which it is unable to get off .

RIP the game of football.


30.) 09 Feb 2024 09:57:17
Thiago is undoubtedly a very good footballer, but he was a terrible signing given that his injury history was bad when we signed him and he was already getting on in years.


31.) 09 Feb 2024 11:09:43
not a fan of projecting a feeling as fact. It's like my mum going about a player only caring about their hair style and therefore they're arrogant pr*cks

to me it seemed an odd game to bring him in for. surely there are other games we can ease him back into the first team. instead we throw him out there in a game we need a goal against a title rival on their patch. sounds like a dud idea to me.


32.) 09 Feb 2024 12:11:47
"Thiago pound for pound is one of Liverpool’s worst ever signings. Has cost the club £100m. "

"I know you love him JK and always stuck up for up. It might be nearer £80m, I will concede that.
His wages have been ridiculous though considering the games he has missed. "

"There will be all sorts of agents fees, various bonuses etc. ".

Now this last one took the cake for me.

Seriously, I had no idea when this brilliant forum became a true fact-free zone where one can just make up schtick from thin air and pulling random numbers out of the wazoo to prove one's opinion.

Bravo!

The problem is Faith we do that all of the time. How many people said that Keita just didn’t care until it was believed on here as fact? How do we know what he’s thinking? He may have been devastated to be injured so much.

What I should have said re Thiago is he ‘looked like’ he thought he was better than everyone ‘in my opinion’.

I would’ve thought that this was self explanatory though as I of course cannot read minds.

Thunderbird might be able to though as he is better than me. At what, I’m not sure but I’m sure it makes him feel better that he’s better than me at something.

dhfc, we are priced out already, its why the atmosphere at Anfield isn't what it was 5 years ago even, £100 a ticket and i have 2 young lads desperate to go, we have to go to Legends matches just to see football at anfield, unless i want to pay near £600 for a hospitality game against Southampton, the games f'd.

FSG take out the annual membership mate and enter the ballots.

I’ve got 4 games this season for my son who is 14 at £9 a ticket for him.

Unfortunately you won’t be able to do this now until next season.

We could have a black card app so if the fans use it and get 90% approval then the ref is arrested and led off the pitch and replaced.

Good Luck to young Elijah Gift on his permanent move to Athletic Bilbao.

Reynard

1.) 10 Jul 2023 08:50:09
Given Bilbao only take on Basque players, it's genuinely remarkable that they have not just fought off relegation every year since the inception of La Liga, but also have 8 league titles and 23 cup wins.

Hope Gift has a good career with them. He's a talented young boy by all accounts.

It's confirmed that Julian Ward has an agreement to join Ajax when he leaves this summer. The merry-go-round begins.

Reynard

1.) 19 Mar 2023 21:32:15
Curious. He's voluntarily quit Liverpool to join Ajax. Very curious.


2.) 20 Mar 2023 08:24:05
Maybe Amsterdam's red light district appeals to him.
I'm sure someone will come up with a conspiracy theory to explain it and finish it off with "he's crap anyway".


3.) 20 Mar 2023 09:28:23
At the age of 15, I went on a high school class trip to Amsterdam. 1975. After getting off the train and out into one particular street, I asked the teacher and classmates " why are these live mannequins in these big windows wearing these thin clothes, don't they feel cold"? ???

Needless to say, I was the butt of all the jokes throughout the 4 day trip. ?.

All UCL and Premiership matches (as it currently stands) will go ahead this week.

Reynard

1.) 12 Sep 2022 13:04:09
Rightly so.


2.) 12 Sep 2022 13:14:38
Hi Reynard,

They reached this decision by using VAR?


3.) 12 Sep 2022 13:27:20
Robbo injured now. No timeframe on it.


4.) 12 Sep 2022 13:54:47
Hope luke chambers is up too it .


5.) 12 Sep 2022 13:59:47
Thanks reynard,
Would that decision just have been made as I am waiting for an email from the club for tickets for the Ajax match. I have gone from the football giving me IBS to the ticket office now being the cause. ? Hopefully it will get to me soon.


6.) 12 Sep 2022 14:19:34
@Mbwell77 - not sure what's going on with the ticketing office but JK finished his presser for tomorrow's game ages ago now.

@JK23 - Robbo will be out until after the international break - according to JK at his presser. Felt a niggle the day after the Napoli game apparently.

@007 - The lines were too close to call but in the end, VAR decided in favour of the attacking team.


7.) 12 Sep 2022 14:54:19
Reynard cheers mate.

Online rumour mill going into overdrive that Saturdays fixtures to go ahead and Sundays to be cancelled. What a palaver that will be if true.

{Ed002's Note - I would expect the Sunday Liverpool fixture to be cancelled regardless of the rest.}


8.) 12 Sep 2022 15:25:36
I was surprised that indications were the Sunday match would go ahead as it's in Chelsea and preparations for the funeral will be at full steam on Sunday and police will be insufficient in London to manage games. It's already been announced that Arsenal's match with PSV is cancelled due to this complication. I'd say keep a close eye on it as it's changing by the hour.


9.) 12 Sep 2022 15:29:25
Formal word coming through that Chelsea v Liverpool is now postponed. Jeezus, this is changing fast.


10.) 12 Sep 2022 15:57:01
What funeral?


11.) 12 Sep 2022 16:29:58
Why was sport across the board not postponed at the weekend why just the football?


12.) 12 Sep 2022 17:25:53
I don’t think the Chelsea game will happen. I reckon Our next prem game will be Brighton at home October 1st.
Tbh we’d lose at the bridge at the moment anyway. We need the regroup.


13.) 12 Sep 2022 19:38:10
@Rabh - most other sport doesn't require the level of police presence that football requires. It's not the level in and around the ground but it's the amount of impact on roads and public transport networks as well.


14.) 12 Sep 2022 21:58:25
I Don't Want To Go To Chelsea because the authorities are Watching The Detectives.

Naby wants out of Liverpool. Not sure there's enough time this summer to do something but expect him to leave - if not now then the winter window during the world cup period.

Reynard

1.) 17 Aug 2022 19:29:27
Now there’s a rumour I would welcome despite the current injury issue in midfield.


2.) 17 Aug 2022 19:34:56
I’d welcome it too but u can’t let him
Leave without a replacement or jay spearing be getting a game!


3.) 17 Aug 2022 19:40:45
Is this legit mate?


4.) 17 Aug 2022 19:43:54
Keita wants to leave, good! Elliott is his replacement.


5.) 17 Aug 2022 19:46:13
Please go while we can still get a fee.


6.) 17 Aug 2022 19:52:13
Seems he wants improved contract not happy with the current one which he's being offered.


7.) 17 Aug 2022 20:26:03
will be a huge celebration my end if anyone gives us a transfer fee for him!


8.) 17 Aug 2022 21:03:12
United might be interested, he'd improve them immensely.

Not even joking.


9.) 18 Aug 2022 00:30:40
Get rid ASAP.


10.) 18 Aug 2022 06:34:38
Replacement for Keita? He's injured half the time and doesn't show up when he does play. So personally I don't see the need to replace him. A fit Milner is > Keita.


11.) 18 Aug 2022 11:51:18
Problem is how many of the 40 games did Naby and Milner play together last season. If the answer is none then Milner is a perfect replacement. If the answer is quite a few then Milner replaces Naby but who then replaces Milners place in that team. Unless we’re happy to play with 10 men.


12.) 18 Aug 2022 11:53:05
He wants to go back to Germany. His agent is speaking with numerous clubs. I think NK will go down as a JK failure in the transfer market. there were numerous red flags when we bought him - I remember Ed002 making numerous comments about problems with his personal life. Apparently, he is popular in the team and works relatively hard but I'm not sure he's managed to settle in the UK at all outside of life at the club. This is only what I'm told, not to be confused with 100% facts, although it comes from a well-respected journalist. Knowing us he'll probably be extended for another 3 or 4 years. I personally would not be disappointed if he left.

Not yet. His agent has some demands concerning the structure and amount of bonuses. These do not seem to represent a major problem and he should, as has been talked about on the internet, extend his contract until 2029.

What the commentator meant was that Virgil and Klopp would be going up the stairs to collect the trophy together. I don't understand how you can understand anything else by it.

What difference does it make as to why he's leaving? Some fans SMH.

Jonathan Kane was nothing to do with the players - he was VP of partnership sales and international business development. You're thinking of Mark Leyland ( who was a performance analyst) but he left us in 2021 for Newcastle.
