Klopp going to have to look at quality back up for next season. AFCON Cup set for Jan 2021. Mane. Salah will be out assuming still there.


1.) 16 Jan 2020 12:45:13
I agree it is going to be very disruptive to our season but we won’t and can’t bring in expensive back up players just fir 3weeks cover.

What’s your thoughts on this ed001? It’s far from ideal ate ain’t it.

{Ed001's Note - we should be fine, always managed in the past and it is only a few weeks. You just get on with it and we have plenty of players to cover.}

2.) 16 Jan 2020 13:07:07
Kai can play up front as well as MF.

3.) 16 Jan 2020 13:10:35
Exactly Ed002, plus might have an extra option in there to cover 🤔.

4.) 16 Jan 2020 21:54:22
We have bought Minamino and we already have Origi who we know can do a job along with Shaq. Maybe Harvey Elliott can come in and take his chance. Overall I’m not panicking too much yet.

5.) 16 Jan 2020 22:58:10
We have Origi, Bobby, Taki and Shaq for those weeks and maybe Brewster? Ox can play up front as well there is no need to panic, plus we may have another 17 point gap at the top of the league as well!

6.) 17 Jan 2020 06:53:35
Naby keita too will be missing.

7.) 17 Jan 2020 09:35:39
Nabys always missing.

8.) 17 Jan 2020 09:37:46
Standard that though Har_red92 👍.

9.) 17 Jan 2020 09:46:13
Isn't he always Har_red92.

10.) 17 Jan 2020 10:06:01
Haha very true.

11.) 17 Jan 2020 17:48:26
Naby Keita has enjoyed the longest "honeymoon" in football history. Been missing for a year and a half and nobody says a word.

12.) 17 Jan 2020 19:29:55
ArAy1969, you seem to be forgetting the 49 games he has played in for Liverpool in that period. Or maybe you just have an agenda.

{Ed025's Note - why thunderbird? are you telling us that your happy with naby,s contributions since he came?

13.) 17 Jan 2020 20:43:23
I wouldn’t say that I’m unhappy, when he’s played he been pretty good, injures happen. I certainly wouldn’t say that he’s been ‘missing’ for a year and a half.

14.) 17 Jan 2020 21:10:43
People it's 2021. With respect, let's focus on the now and next. ⚽️✌.

15.) 17 Jan 2020 23:55:02
I agree with that Thunderbird. It’s like when everything’s going well people have to find something or someone to moan about. Obviously rival fans will grab on to any possible criticism they can and due to his injuries he’s an easy target.
He cost less than Fred and Pogba and the same as Richarlison and even with the injuries I know who I’d prefer to have.
The guy is a class act and all the naysayers will be eating their words before long and I hope they choke on them.

16.) 17 Jan 2020 15:51:01
Origi and shaq 1st team for possible six weeks. After xmas. without injuries and possible man city top 4 fixture. I think this will definitely force his hand and buy CF. 1 out not both Firmino can't score enough.

17.) 18 Jan 2020 21:19:53
Thunderbird. Of course, I unequivocally have an agenda. It's called being "a club supporter who doesn't hesitate to voice his displeasure at players on whom high expectations have been placed, are paid very well and yet are unable to put in a regular shift throughout a season".

I admire your ability to fish for and spit out meaningless statistics, from the internet. But Naby Keita is an underperformer since day one, and/ or really likes the decor in the physio room and therefore spends a lot of time there. I clapped during those few games where he excelled, but that's not enough for me to say he deserves to keep that valuable squad place he is holding. The team needs 17-18 players who can be absolutely trusted, be relied on, and be dependant on, to be at the height, and stay at the height, we are on. This man is not there most of the time, and yet he's holding one of those 17-18 top squad places.

It's like sitting around for approximately 2 hours for a whale to come up. Once it comes up for air for around 10 seconds, you scream "wow" and then it's gone down again. And you wait for another 2 hours again. This turns some people on. Fine. It doesn't work for me. I guess I'm a naysayer then.

18.) 20 Jan 2020 23:55:34
I'm still optimistic with keita, I'd feel different if he's been playing poor for last 18 months but it's just constant injury setbacks is hurting him and his form has been impressive when you consider he's always been playing without any rhythm as yet. His previous injury history was never an issue so I think it's still likely he can overcome and play consistently. Henderson was suffering like keita with niggles for about 2 years at similar age and OX too. The talent is there and he's shown he has it. Last summer his country ruined his rehab and he never got the chance to recover and get up to speed in pre season. He deserves more time as he's still young and only injury has stopped him flourishing.

{Ed025's Note - its not only the injuries though is it har?, not learned the language and a bit of a loner as well...does he really deserve more time?..

19.) 21 Jan 2020 04:58:12
I don't know about the loner issue but allison and firmino also aren't speaking English so as much as it is frustrating I'm not going to use that as a reason to write him off. Tevez spent years not speaking English, took aguero ages too but if he can do his talking on the field we won't care, . I just want to see him have a spell where he's fit and playing regularly before I give up on him because i know there's a great midfielder in there. I'm hoping it can fall into place for him, remember OX spent 5 years like this at arsenal before finding his spark. Klopp will I'm sure know exactly what direction keitas career is heading and I guess in the summer we might find out if we have belief or not in him to succeed.

20.) 21 Jan 2020 14:41:19
Look at that mug Rooney, he could barely speak English and did ok 😂.



13 Jan 2020 09:22:37
Looks like definite interest in Haavertz.


1.) 13 Jan 2020 10:39:30
How so? Would be a great addition.

2.) 13 Jan 2020 11:22:35
One of the hot properties around Europe. Thinking is £85m. Hence don't see it myself. I reckon only reason we would spend that much is if we are predicting to lose Sarah or Mane or Bobby to RM or Barcelona should we win the league.

3.) 13 Jan 2020 10:36:28
Nah mate. There isn’t. He would cost towards 100M and who doesn’t play instead of him? Ed002 has advised on him a few weeks back.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any change to the situation regarding Havertz.}

4.) 13 Jan 2020 12:56:15
He has 2 goals and 1 assist all season, he gets no where near our first 11 atm.

5.) 15 Jan 2020 00:26:32
His style of play doesn't have an obvious role in our current setup without tweaking quiet a lot of our shape. He plays between the lines of mid and attack. Our midfield would lose out on the tenacious energy if he was forced into that 3 man engine. He can't offer anything similar to what mane or salah give from wide as direct runners and he'd only be most suited to firminos role but certainly I don't think he could be more effective than bobby.

He's a fantastic talent and in the right setup will be excellent but not our best fit currently.



19 Jun 2019 01:44:02
Lots of talk regarding contact made for Koulibaly. Maybe rubbish but a lot of sites saying so not just the odd one.


1.) 19 Jun 2019 05:59:59
He'd cost crazy money so I doubt it.

2.) 19 Jun 2019 06:57:42
He would cost ridiculous money but what a cb pairing we would have if it was true. scary.

3.) 19 Jun 2019 07:48:42
Don't they both play on the left side? So probably a non-starter.

4.) 19 Jun 2019 08:00:57
What's wrong with the centre back pairings we have ?

5.) 19 Jun 2019 09:20:25
I'm assuming Lovren is close to completing a move to Italy, so they are linking us to CBs.

6.) 19 Jun 2019 10:30:34
He'd cost more than VVD and he also plays on the left side of the defence which is where VVD plays. We also have Gomez who impressed immensely alongside VVD before injury, so I'd rather just stick with what we have, maybe move Lovren on for a homegrown option or an experienced player willing to rotate and push Gomez to keep improving.



17 Mar 2019 09:00:41
A lot of noise/ cobsistancy from several papers claiming Contact made about benfica, ferro, 21yr CB.
I don't believe the prices qouted 85m buy out for unproven but seems loan 8m + opt to buy was rejected last year.


1.) 18 Mar 2019 14:24:58
He only has 10 senior appearances. I'd think we'd like to see a bit more of him at senior level before making such an investment.

{Ed002's Note - Francisco Ferreira was one of the three young CBs Liverpool looked at in 2017 with a view to taking one in January 2018. He is priced in order to turn any potential buyers away, such as Manchester City, West Ham and Borussia Dortmund who have also shown a little interest and watched him in the B side over the past 18 months.}

2.) 18 Mar 2019 17:19:56
Thanks Ed002. It's the first that I've seen about him. Surely nobody with any sense would pay such an obscene amount of money for someone with so little senior experience.

Reece-Oxford of West Ham springs to mind. He had an amazing debut at 16 against Arsenal (also MOTM if I remember correctly) and looked good in his other appearances, but he's nowhere near their first team now.

Jack Robinson is another good example.

10 appearances? A lot of it depends on the mentality of the person. Lots of players (not just defenders) have had really bright starts to their career and tailed off because they didn't have the right mindset to play at the highest level and to keep improving.

{Ed002's Note - No, I would not expect anyone to be paying anything like such an amount.}

3.) 18 Mar 2019 23:19:41
The way I read the story is that we’re interested in this young player, his buyout clause is £85m or some such number, therefore we are prepared to break the record.

Can anyone else see the leap the ‘journalists’ have made? 😉😂.



18 Jul 2018 14:34:36
Is there any truth in the VIDA rumours. Personally it makes sense if vvd. isn't available we all know matip. klaven hasn't worked so why not buy his teammate. You can't risk a gomez. lovren partbership.


{Ed002's Note - Domagoj Vida (CB) – Offers from Everton and Leicester and a verbal offer from another side (I would think Liverpool or Savilla) have been made - West Ham has made an offer via his agent but Besiktas have not had a formal offer from them when I asked

1.) 18 Jul 2018 15:19:51
Odd one for me. Would be happy with Gomez getting a fair shot at playing in cup games etc this year. Hopefully he stays and matip and klavan leave.

2.) 18 Jul 2018 15:39:43
So we may well of bid for Vida. I was thinking it was made up and we were not looking at another CB.

{Ed002's Note - It is unclear and I can see zero point in buying him.}

3.) 18 Jul 2018 16:07:47
I also see no point Ed2, not when we have Gomez. Buying another CB would basically be telling Gomez he's done at Liverpool in my opinion.

4.) 18 Jul 2018 16:07:51
am I missing something with Matip, I thought he was good when he joined. he didn't have much help from Lovren and co initially and copped most of the flak!

5.) 18 Jul 2018 16:16:06
It's not a problem position for us, we have VVD, Lovren, Matip, Klavan, Gomez as well as Masterson who is well thought of if I recall correctly.

I'd personally see Matip moved on, Klavan kept as a back as I think he's a good lad, professional and to his credit, a good Cb when he's called upon. Even if this happened though there still wouldn't be room for Vida.

6.) 18 Jul 2018 16:18:12
Personally i only see Vida as an option if one of Klavan or Matip leaves, IMO no point in buying him to add to the ranks should only be a replacement.

7.) 18 Jul 2018 16:38:30
Get rid of klavan. should never of joined liverpool anyway.

8.) 18 Jul 2018 16:41:02
He's the other half of the world cup final cb pairing. You have been telling me how world class Lovren is, well this lad was just as good. Far better than klavan and Matip.

Works well with Lovren. Keeps Lovren in his proper position and means that were not down to dodgy cbs if god forbid something happened to the man mountain.

Klavan and Matip are not title winning cbs and that has to be what we want.

What's the po8nt in getting Alison, having the best attacking 3 in the country and investing in big big players like fab, fekir, keita to not streghen the cbs.

9.) 18 Jul 2018 17:01:10
I bet klopps already tapping up Maguire for 19/ 20.

10.) 18 Jul 2018 17:28:05
Vida- the clumsier version of Lovren. Don't see a player there, think Dejan carried him at times. Hope we stay away.

11.) 18 Jul 2018 17:59:51
Vida the uglier brother of Voronin.

12.) 18 Jul 2018 18:37:36
Is Vida just wc hype? Never heard of him until it, and we haven't been linked with a player who is wanted by smaller clubs for a while lol.

13.) 18 Jul 2018 19:01:23
Going back to his Dortmund days, GK and CB are 2 positions that Klopp doesn't like to play kids at, he prefers someone seasoned and experienced. Ward was never going to get much of a chance, think Gomez will split time another year or two at RB before truly getting a shot at CB.

14.) 18 Jul 2018 19:21:46
Vida wouldn't be wear I would start when building a new defence.

Like a vvd is.

But to improve our back up and to give us someone who can actually work with Lovren I just can't see a downside. He's probably not going to feature a while bunch but who knows maybe if. anything happening to vvd, him and Lovren could lead up like they did croatia.

You forget how hard it is getting the right partner for Lovren. needs a certain type.

If there's someone going who made a world cup final with him then surely it's a no brainer.

15.) 18 Jul 2018 19:59:12
Vida is is decent defender and nothing more. Lovren made him look very good at the WC cos well, he can't pass out the back, lacks pace and is quite clumsy. Lovren was the one passing out the back and bringing the ball out towards midfield, something Vida never did (maybe he can't or was asked no to, I don't know) BUT he ain't nothing more than a flavor of the WC, something that will die down with time.

16.) 18 Jul 2018 20:01:55
Kloppsboss maybe Lovren should be replaced then if he is the problem ;)

17.) 18 Jul 2018 20:49:03
Lacks pace? He marked sterling out the game. Didn't get done by him. The only players faster than him in the prem play for us.

He's better than Matip and klavan. Works well with Lovren and wo7ld provide us with a really good cb option.

Strange how Lovren has had an amazing season and the credit isn't going to vvd? Like your all disrespecting Vida by saying it was all Lovren.

You don't make a world cup final with passengers, I'm sorry but it doesn't happen. over the games it takes to get there your weak links will get exposed.

Not sure if 100% but have heard Afcon has moved to 2022. that's great news if so.




06 Jun 2020 23:30:27
Klopp said that due to uncertainties with sponsors. Tickets. Corporate and players salaries. that transfers can't be justified. pretty. much shuts down all this Sanchez. Koulibaly talk.


1.) 06 Jun 2020 23:35:28
Sanchez 🤔.

2.) 06 Jun 2020 23:37:43
To use an old favourite of this page; "What if that's just a smokescreen? " Trying to get a cheaper deal hahaha.

Nah I'm sure you're right doesn't seem likely that we'd spend big unless we sold a load of players.

3.) 07 Jun 2020 12:11:10
Not sure the Khoulibaly talk was a thing, anyway.



16 May 2020 17:53:03
Hi ed. I asked this question earlier. can the fa award the title like belgium and france. The dutch did initially but it got denied. don't know why. if season is void. can lfc be awarded the title. belgium has a non catchable lead but PSG and ajax didn't.


{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with The FA. There is and never has been an option to make the season void. It is nothing to do with other countries. You need to read the posts.}

1.) 16 May 2020 21:15:01



13 May 2020 21:04:01
Hi Ed. If the season does not proceed. Can fa award them the title. France has to PSG. But the dutch and Belgium's weren't allowed. The dutch have ended it but belgium have done a u turn as only 1 game left.


{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with the FA - it is a matter for the Premier League and I have explained what would likely need to happen.}



28 Feb 2020 09:05:37
Ed, Reports that terms are agreed for WERNER but fee not yet. can this be the case without the fee? I assume they would need permission.


{Ed002's Note - Yes, the club could agree everything with the agent before approaching the club. As you know the club are very unhappy at the disruption that has been caused with their player and are looking to understand if there has been direct contact.}

1.) 28 Feb 2020 11:54:20
so is it ok to agree everything with a players agent but not talk to the player, if so it makes no difference to talking to the player as the agent is just passing on everything both ways. how many times do agents try to get players to move even when they are happy just because they want there fee.

2.) 28 Feb 2020 12:40:46
Grino I no what your saying there is little difference. Fact of the matter is there is know confirmation as of yet that we have spoken to the agent or player or under his club so it all seems fabricated at this stage to me.

3.) 29 Feb 2020 06:31:32
Isn't that kind of how the fekir deal played out? We had agreed terms in principle with the player before finalising the negotiations with his club.

Seemed like fernandes to United was similar, agreed personal terms while waiting still for sporting and United to reach an agreement.

{Ed002's Note - There has been no agreement for Werner.}

4.) 29 Feb 2020 10:22:08
Yeah I know that, I was more responding to the posters question regarding how teams can agree terms with a player even before the 2 clubs have struck a final deal. I just referred to those 2 well publicised transfer sagas as examples, . I believe firmly you're correct regarding Werner being far off what the media are making out.

Hi Ed. was it the fact that they had to pay upfront to activate the buy out clause whereas if they did buy traore for 70m they may be able to pay circa 17m for 4 yrs. which is more affordable?


{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you mean. Liverpool illegally tapped the player up and they did not speak to his club. In addition to what I have said, the Chief Executive has explained the money situation at Liverpool.}

Apparently he's not worth the 50m because of corona virus but traore is worth 70m and haevertz worth 90m. no ones got a clue can't see them announcing yes or no until Bundesliga over.

Agree. Which is why werner saga was such a disappointment. I think he could have played through the middle as he's technically good as well
as pacey. bobbys a purple patch player that never takes his 50.50 chances. it was no surprise he fluffed his shot against city and I immediately thought werner would have buried that. 0 goals at home in this team.
