I'm constantly impressed by Declan Rice, and think he will be a top top player. Are Liverpool or any others showing serious interest in him? I know we have Fabinho but I imagine he could play higher up the pitch if necessary.


{Ed002's Note - Manchester United are keen.}

1.) 18 Oct 2021 07:45:02
Why would he take a step down to go to Man U?

2.) 18 Oct 2021 09:29:43
He’ll end up at United or Chelsea, West Ham want £100m for him so he’s not in our price range.

3.) 18 Oct 2021 10:25:20
Who is better Rice or Phillips?

4.) 18 Oct 2021 11:42:36
Phillips better passer. Rice better engine and all round I reckon.

5.) 18 Oct 2021 12:15:53
Really don't get the hype with Rice. £30m player with an inflated fee IMO.

6.) 18 Oct 2021 12:45:31
Not for me. Massively hyped up by the media imo. Not sure what he brings tbh.

7.) 18 Oct 2021 13:10:27
Rice is on a completely different level than Phillips. Phillips is a fine player, but Rice is one of the best talents in England right now.

8.) 18 Oct 2021 14:34:02
Mftonjes can you explain why you think he's one of the best talents? I couldn't disagree more but I respect your opinion 👌.

9.) 18 Oct 2021 15:11:34
I personally think Phillips is too slow and not defensively strong enough, whereas Rice is better defensively, he’s also not particularly quick and is as mobile as the QE2 and I don’t think he’s as clever a defensive player as either Fabinho or Rodri.

Either way he’ll be United’s big summer signing next year and Ole’s final piece of the jigsaw #1426 and counting.

{Ed0666's Note - Are we comparing Nat Philips to Declan Rice? They play completely different positions

10.) 18 Oct 2021 15:14:09
I am impressed with Rice too.
He keeps, carries and distributes the ball excellently.
Better than Gini for sure.
Not the same kind of player as Fab.
Probably more of a Henderson replacement.

The thing is, I have been looking at midfielders in every team and see which can improve Liverpool. Ty
Despite the constant criticism of Liverpool midfield, there aren't that many better I would take.
If you consider KDB, for sure he will improve the team.
Otherwise, I think Rice will do a job (far better than Phillips) .

And we truly miss Gerrard.
If the current team has a Gerrard, we will indisputably the best team in the world.

{Ed0666's Note - Rice is a superb player goes about his work in an efficient and effective manner and would certainly be a worthy successor to Hendo. The midfield player I would take is Ndombele if Bissouma has been a naughty boy. That fella is mercurial. Lord knows what position he plays because he’s everywhere.

11.) 18 Oct 2021 17:10:32
Ndombele or bissouma Ed?

{Ed0666's Note - I think Ndombele would be perfect for us with the personnel we have

12.) 18 Oct 2021 19:25:44
Tielemans without doubt he is different from what we have.

{Ed0666's Note - inconsistent tho no?

13.) 18 Oct 2021 22:11:24
I meant Phillips at Leeds United Ed.

{Ed0666's Note - thanks for cleaning that up mate. I was beginning to think I’d lost all my faculties. For sure Rice over Philips for me. Rice is a Hendo in the making

14.) 18 Oct 2021 22:24:50
Can’t compete with Newcastle. Am sure they’ll want him.

15.) 19 Oct 2021 09:39:59
I agree I think Rice would be a great Hendo successor, it’s a pity he is likely too expensive for us.

16.) 19 Oct 2021 12:28:35
Rice miles better than Gini. I know there are Gini haters on here but get a grip. Rice is slow. Often poorly positioned. Average passer. He’s a slightly better Dier IMO and massively overhyped by the press (for a change) .

17.) 19 Oct 2021 13:07:09
But Ed Ndombele has baggage, too. He seems to have a real attitude problem that's causing issues at Spurs.

18.) 19 Oct 2021 13:11:30
Gandalf, I just love the player. First, he's highly skilled and intelligent. There's something instinctual to the way he plays, especially for a guy who is often in the defensive half. To that point, he's plays difficult positions, ones that often takes a lot of experience to master, and he's doing it really well as a very young player. Also the age is relevant too, because he's playing for a club that isn't well known for development, and he continues to improve each season and likely in a trial by fire situation. I don't watch him regularly, rather a handful of times a season, and every time I've watched him I've thought he's been better than the last time I watched him. There are few players that stand out to me like this.

No player is a perfect player, but it really feels like there is a student of the craft in him and given his base skillset, he has a ton to work with. I see him being one of the best (potentially the best) English midfielders of the next decade. There's a reason why United and supposedly City are both wanting him badly.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath for Rice.}

19.) 19 Oct 2021 13:24:33
Ed002 - Ha, I agree. I don't believe there is a fit between him and Liverpool at all, I was just telling Gandalf why I like the player. He's already too high priced for Liverpool.

20.) 19 Oct 2021 20:47:03
for me Ndombele looks great in spells then you don't know his on the pitch a lot of the time for spurs. But when he does put a spell in his great on the ball I don't think the prem suits him. A better version of Naby but not a player for a full season in the prem for me. Bissouma if he has not done anything wrong would be a lot better fit. As for Rice being a Henderson replacement I think I would rather Curtis Jones do that.



11 Jan 2018 10:03:38
Heard from a good source that Ceballos is 'nailed on' to join before the window closes. No idea how my source knows but works within football and simply passed it on, make of it what you will.

Personally I would be a bit underwhelmed if the de facto replacement for Coutinho was Ceballos as seems a marked step down in quality but hey ho let's see what materialises.


1.) 11 Jan 2018 10:37:30
Why are people saying he is the replacement of coutinho? What if we are taking advantage of his situation at madrid?

Although I agree that he is not a Coutinho replacement, I think he is a good player and would be a good acquisition for the squad looking forward.

2.) 11 Jan 2018 10:55:19
Yes we ain't going to replace coutihno he is a world class Brazil international, but what we can do is strengthen the areas we are weak in we lack creative spark in midfield an someone who can manipulate the ball he is a gamble but could also turn out too b real quality well worth a punt especially if we can get keita early as well suddenly midfield is lookin healthy freeing up the attack, ox, mane, Salah, firmino, lallana, solanke, sturridge, nice options, still I would like us too buy an attacker like lemar, mahrez, suso, draxler wishful thinking though.

3.) 11 Jan 2018 12:00:02
I wonder if we will hear from wonder dog sparky?

4.) 11 Jan 2018 13:53:12
Hi eds i'm going to need your email addresses, mothers maiden names and the names of your first pets. uh. for science

Seriously though I hope we can do something like this, the buzz the club had post VVD left along with Phil.

5.) 11 Jan 2018 22:02:17
Coutinho was crap in midfield. Addressing the balance there would be an upgrade.

6.) 11 Jan 2018 22:39:08
Faith, he wasn’t really crap in midfield though was he? He played most games in midfield this season and had one of his best (half) seasons.

7.) 12 Jan 2018 19:12:12
our midfield is very weak at the moment, and could be the weakness that City will try and take control over, we really need at least one top player coming in this window, the name I have is the big guy from Roma,

I thought we were good for the win yesterday, but we were sloppy at the back, lax in midfield, and again missed gilt edged chances up front. Fabinho was asleep for their first goal, Trent got overloaded an lacked help, Van Dijk looked off the boil. Not sure what the consensus is but I think Tsimikas is, on form, deserving of a start ahead of Robertson at the moment - not sure he'll get it but just my opinion.

In terms of chances missed I think Jotas open goal and Salahs hefty chip were crucial - both massive chances, both should've went in, both would've given us a 2 goal cushion.

We were the better team, we dropped points, but we'll go again. Not overly concerned though these things happen.


{Ed0666's Note - I agree with you’re Tsimikas shout.

1.) 26 Sep 2021 23:14:45
I totally agree Seano and Ed0666 about Kostas. He must be thinking to himself what must he do to get a run of games.

2.) 27 Sep 2021 00:47:56
The one thing I think when games like this is that we would benefit from a typical number nine. We say firmino is the glue but I think it shows that we can still create without him, and jota (a more natural scorer than bobby) gets goals. His link up play is miles off Bobby’s for sure, but we still create with our front three, full backs and out midfield.

3.) 27 Sep 2021 08:12:42
Tsimikas will start vs Porto IMO and Robbo back for ManCity.

4.) 27 Sep 2021 10:02:25
Firmane, I disagree. IMO, the issue here is not whether to have a no. 9 or not so Bobbie has nothing to do with it. Having a normal no. 9 would not have stopped the calamitous defending on show from pretty much minute 1. Neither would it have stopped us from conceding the goals we did in the way we did. The attack was not the issue.

We had enuff chances to score 6 goals. We also conceded enuff chances to to concede 5 to Brentford. The latter is the issue here, IMO. That is the issue we need to iron out in addition to being as clinical as possible cos Salah had the chance to kill the game at 4-2 BUT chose to inexplicable try to chip the GK who is as tall as Matip. Poor decision., right there IMO.



29 Aug 2021 16:25:09
Remarkable statistic from yesterday's game:

Chelsea attempted 30 tackles on Liverpool players and were penalized 0 times - that is correct, Liverpool were not awarded a single free kick (due to Chelsea tackles) .

Liverpool attempted 20 tackles and were penalized on 13 occasions - Chelsea were awarded 13 free kicks.

I thought the referee was poor yesterday, those statistics are stark though.


1.) 29 Aug 2021 16:33:56
I remember one time either mount or havertz going to ground under no contact from matip! watching his protest was worth it through! he always has the best of reactions!

2.) 29 Aug 2021 16:40:41
Thought we handled Lukaku well. He’s no Drogba, that’s for sure, yeah he’s a big lad, but he’s nowhere near as much of a battler or fighter. Flat track bully all day long.



18 Jul 2021 07:35:21
Highly rated youngster of ours, Ethan Ennis, appears to be on the move to either Chelsea or Manchester United. Just curious as to why we're not keeping him/ why he is leaving if he is so highly rated, anybody know?


1.) 18 Jul 2021 09:29:55
Kids come and go, Better financial offers or view other teams as better opportunities to the first team.

Good luck to him.

{Ed0666's Note - how is Chelsea gonna give him a better route to the first team?

2.) 18 Jul 2021 09:44:16
How many youngsters actually make the grade? He’s just as likely to fail there as he would anywhere else.

3.) 18 Jul 2021 14:23:55
Good little player, anyone know if he's a scouser or not? strange if he's from the city and wants out.

4.) 18 Jul 2021 14:39:07
We have not been the best at integrating these kids into the first team, can't say I blame him if it's true.



11 Jun 2021 09:43:05
What's everyone's thoughts on the Nike kits so far? Have to be honest found them quite garbage, they may be paying us more than New Balance but the designs are a miie away in terms of quality, uniqueness, or understanding of our club. I hope they improve but I'm not hopeful.


1.) 11 Jun 2021 10:51:18
To be fair the new balance away and 3rd kits were painful to look at. Nike have better kits overall but i don't like the blue or orange trim on their two home kit designs so far. Our best 1st kit colours are red as a base and white/ gold trim. Don't fix what isn't broken.

2.) 11 Jun 2021 11:02:31
That's the thing with big money making machines. The small nuances that make unique products that have relevance, get lost, forgotten or just trampled on. The question being asked at the design stage is rarely "does it look good enough and fit with the club and supporters? ". It's more "will it sell enough? "

I think it's time came out with a 4th kit. 😂.

3.) 11 Jun 2021 10:38:25
Indifferent. As long as the kit deal pays the bills, that’s all that matters,

4.) 11 Jun 2021 10:39:32
Nike have a couple of templates and every team basically gets their colours and logo fitted onto a template. Been the same for decades and we knew it going in so *shrug emoji*.

5.) 11 Jun 2021 11:50:53
Pretty poor so far. The blue trim was horrible, the orange trim is horrible. To be fair I think the new one would be ok if the orange trim on the sleeves and front collar was replaced with the black/ dark gray that’s used on the back of the collar.
I mean I’ve stopped buying them now because they are taking the pi$$ with the prices so I’m not that bothered anyway cos I won’t be wearing it. But I do feel for those who do part with that amount of cash to then wear a horrible shirt.

6.) 11 Jun 2021 11:28:48
I like the kit to look good, but clearly don't care as much as some on here do haha

There have been some stinkers across both Nike and NB. just think this gives another platform for people to have a moan about lol.

7.) 11 Jun 2021 12:11:14
Most of the Nike kits are unreal. The new Chelsea and Leipzig are quality, just not a massive fan of ours!

9.) 11 Jun 2021 12:32:30
I think the Nike kits are horrible. NB kits, especially the red were much, much better in my opinion, especially the last three. I get the financial side of going with Nike, but their kits are probably the worst. Adidas, Puma, NB are much better. Hummel's kits are nice as well.

10.) 11 Jun 2021 15:23:40
I’d say NB definitely had the better home kits and Nike have had slightly better away and third kits but I’d give the edge to NB, Nike haven't really impressed me, and very rarely do with their kits nowadays. Adidas are far better, outside of football and within.

11.) 11 Jun 2021 15:27:00
I like the new away kit mind, it’s definitely the one I’d go for so far.

12.) 11 Jun 2021 20:13:27
I suspect they are all specifically designed with how they look with jeans as the priority in order to maximise sales. Not many go around wearing full kits.



29 May 2021 04:20:39
What's everybody's opinion on UEFA looking to scrap the away goals rule for European competitions? I don't really understand the reasoning behind it but UEFA will be UEFA. I think the away goals rule maintains a nice balance and rewards teams for not just sitting back and defending away from home - can imagine a lot more boring, defensive games if this rule goes through.


1.) 29 May 2021 05:55:47
Id like to see more shootouts to decide games. One they are thrilling and second its fair.
Suppose we loose 1-0 on away leg and win 3-2 at home in a cracking game. We go out. that's not so fair for the competition either.
Now there should be more games that go 120 minutes more TV time mores drama more shoot outs.
I think away goal rule suits team who like to sit back. Score one and sit back whole game. It doesn't suit teams who like to attack, they are more likely to concede at times.

2.) 29 May 2021 06:17:10
Scrapping it is a stupid idea. No team needs to be playing 120 mins in midweek cup competitions thousands of miles from then potentially having a penalty shootout which prolongs the game by another 30mins or so. Another bad UEFA decision.

3.) 29 May 2021 06:55:01
personally don't like the idea of scrapping away goals totally, though i am in favor of away goal being not in force during ET in the 2nd leg.

i thought it might be fairer as both teams would have had 90mins each at their homeground. not too sure though if it'll make the ET more exciting or dull, but i suppose teams are more inclined to play their natural way since a goal is a goal and doesn't have 'away goal rule' advantage to factor into their tactics.

4.) 29 May 2021 08:24:28
Akira, I'd guess the players and managers would just love your idea.

Not just are they likely going to be playing extra games in Europe, those games could be longer! Win, win.

5.) 29 May 2021 09:34:58
Paid 100s of 1000s of dollars but will cry to play 30 min extra because oooh me legs oooh so much burden ooooh players need to recover.
Gimme a break! If 30 mins extra breaks you as a manager and player sort yourself out first.

Fit teams and teams with a bench will always love that 30 mins extra.

Ending on away goals is not fair. Games at that level should be properly decided in spirit of competition. Fair and square.

6.) 29 May 2021 09:36:10
I hate away goals people say pens are awful way to go out but at least everybody gets the same amount the away side in the second leg gets an extra 30mins to score an away and if they get one in extra time that’s the match just about done. I all so think it makes home sides in second legs when the game is close having extra nerves.

7.) 29 May 2021 10:45:19
Akira you do talk some rubbish. More money doesn't make you less tired.

8.) 29 May 2021 11:10:08
I'm in favour of scrapping it. Makes 2-legged ties more tactical, as you know one way or another you're going to need to win a game to go through. With glory and millions of £s on the line, why should one team go out if both legs are draws? Yes, away teams might sit back a bit more, but that's what league football is like anyway, in general the away team is usually the more conservative, unless there's a gulf in class.

9.) 29 May 2021 11:41:04
Obviously Akira hasn't seen the impact of players not getting proper rest between games had on our season, and many other teams.

Pure stupidity to - potentially - increase the number of minutes played. Will only benefit the teams with bigger/ better squads and, as mentioned, hands a slight advantage to the home team in the second leg as they get more time on their own patch.

10.) 29 May 2021 11:56:01
I for one like the Golden Goal. I think the most exciting thing in sports is NHL playoff overtime. Play till the first team scores. It is an edge of the seat, heart in throat type experience. Great for the neutral fan as well. Clearly though there can be only extra time and not multiple ots.

11.) 29 May 2021 13:26:12
Scrap 2 legged ties and play one game at a neutral venue instead.

{Ed002's Note - The leading clubs would all be against that.}

12.) 29 May 2021 13:30:44
How does playing extra 30 minutes at best in 3 games max amount to extra play time that will destroy players careers! i fail to understand.
Either am too old or you guys are too soft.
Its about winning fair. 30 mins are for both teams.

13.) 29 May 2021 18:01:44
Away goals rule adds an element of risk to the game and encourages the away side to have a go away from home. Taking it away gives no incentive to an away team to attack or even venture away from their own 18 yard box.

How is 15mil an unfair price for Phillips? Proved himself last season, still relatively young, Premier League ready - I’d of thought 15mil was a comparative bargain, I think we’re right to be holding out for at least that.

In fairness to Minamino he started slow, but was beginning to look better, he then had a really good game away to Palace and got zero game time since that game before being loaned out. Hard to build either momentum, consistency, or confidence if you are simply not given a chance even after you do play well. I'm not saying he would've been amazing if he had of been given a chance, I do not know one way or the other, but I do think that management of him has been somewhat poor and made his integration into the team much more difficult.

Difficult to know what the right answer is - short term a new contract might be best but for the long term a rebuild is a must and if Salah has to leave to enable it then so be it. Recruitment and a suitable replacement will be crucial - out of interest ed002 what player do you think Liverpool should look at as a Salah replacement?

Potter would be my choice, has shown ability from lowest levels up to Brighton, and certainly seems good enough to be tested at the highest level. I think he’d be the most seamless successor if/ when Klopp leaves.

The relaxation on physical contact this season is going to lead to far more incidents and injuries like this as players become more emboldened to play physically, and go in strongly, without fear of reprieve. Gutted for Elliott has been doing very well, horrible injury to occur.
