Why do people say . get rid of gomez etc to bring money in to help with new players . when u need to replace a very good player who can play numerous positions that'll cost more money to replace . yet some say keep salah n let him go for free next year . losing upto 100 mill. I love salah . but he 31/ 32.might be going the Olympics, hasn't played as good as he used to. surely 100 mill is better than the 20 odd mill for gomez . I know he's a legend but can't afford to do that can we.


1.) 14 Jun 2024 19:03:35
Not the Gomez discussion again, flogging a dead horse with this discussion.

2.) 14 Jun 2024 19:19:12
nobody is paying 100 million for Salah when he can be persuaded to sign for free next summer. Also Salah is not finished or anything, he was rushed from injury by Klopp and was taking pain killers to play! He'll bang 25-30 goals again next season. How many assists did Joe Gomez get from RB and LB?

3.) 14 Jun 2024 20:52:07
Mcgov. if u don't loke it . scroll past . simple . Fisketprett. but salah won't be scoring 25/ 30 this season . n then he b off for nothing . Gomez came on done great in every position he played . how many goals did he prevent.

4.) 14 Jun 2024 18:39:31
At the end of the day we all have opinions and I think it’s ok to express them but it’s only down to the board to decide. If slot has an idea and that involves selling Gomez then am backing slot.

5.) 14 Jun 2024 21:24:37
It is being done to death tho.

6.) 14 Jun 2024 22:06:02
If u say so june.

7.) 14 Jun 2024 22:39:08
It's okay, as long as it's just an opinion. ?.

8.) 14 Jun 2024 23:41:52
We’ve seen the best of gomez so if someone’s interested in him for 20-25m then why not bring in someone younger and equally versatile such as geertruida or huijsen who will only develop and grow as a player.

9.) 15 Jun 2024 01:06:08
June is right, it has been done to death. It's got to a boring point. Let's just see what happens.

10.) 15 Jun 2024 04:32:44
Honestly there isn't anything new.

Keep coming here 5 to 6 times a day and nothing new.

Square Tomato used to give quality inputs on Joe. not seen him here for long.

nothing from Macca these days.

11.) 15 Jun 2024 06:55:37
Sami, square tomato was on the other week discussing Trents contract from memory. He hasn't mentioned Joe in a while, would be interesting if he could give an insight.

12.) 15 Jun 2024 08:03:01
It wasn’t so long ago that replying to someone’s thread, I suggested that Joe Gomez should be in the conversation for player of the season… and lots of people agreed. Yes he lost his playing time once Robertson was fit again, but he hadn’t let anyone down and I wasn’t worried at all when I saw his name on the team sheet. Is he the best left back in the world…. no! Will he do a really good job anywhere across the back 4… very much so. He is home grown and our longest serving player. You tell me a better 3rd, 4th, 5th choice (depending on who you listen to on here) home grown player in the prem, who can cover all the back 4 and is willing to come and sit on the bench for large parts of the season and I am all ears. If Joe wants to stay then I’m all for it.

13.) 15 Jun 2024 11:16:08
I have a gut feeling Salah will surprise everyone next season. I really hope he will.

14.) 15 Jun 2024 11:17:52
It's ok to want to keep or sell Gomez but don't compare him to Salah, please ?.

15.) 15 Jun 2024 11:55:35
Fisketprett, nobody signs for free. Mbappe signed for ‘free’ for Real Madrid but they paid him over £100m signing on fee to get him.

16.) 15 Jun 2024 12:26:37
Is Mo going to sign for Grimsby? That would be a surprise.

17.) 15 Jun 2024 15:38:54
Please can we move on from Gomez!



05 Jun 2024 18:55:51
Question for Ed1 really. just seen Phil Boresma chatting and comparing Shanks and
Paisley. he said were as Paisley won more trophies he couldn't have done what Shanks did, meaning drag us out of the 2nd division and make us the force that we were, he said he never had the personality n he wasn't a nice man . first time iv ever heard someone sayin he wasn't a nice man . always came across as humble but sure he was ruthless when he had to be . sure you have said you've had some dealings with his family. what's your views on it.


{Ed001's Note - I think he was meaning in terms of his ruthlessness. All Boersma seems to have done is say everyone is not a nice man. He said the same of Toshack as well. Boersma comes across as a very bitter man, blaming others for his own failings. He was moved on for not being good enough and is trying to make it seem like that was down to nastiness, rather than him just not being good enough.}

1.) 05 Jun 2024 22:16:12
Suppose it just depends on your opinion I suppose and what your dealings are with these people.
I used to work with someone who previously worked closely with king Kenny and she used to say he was horrible and miserable, the worst person she worked with at the club, Something I was very surprised at. I’ve met him a couple of times and he seemed alright to me if a little lacking in personality if I’m honest.
I’ve met Rafa several times over the years and it’s always for a couple of hours at a time and I’ve found him to be the friendliest, most down to earth person I’ve met from football, he will talk to you all day long about tactics if you want and he’s got the time and he’s very willing to help anyone in any way he can. But the other day I saw a YouTube video of an ex Liverpool player laying into him for being cold and unprofessional and I thought it’s a million miles away from the Rafa I know.

2.) 05 Jun 2024 23:44:34
You have to be ruthless to be a successful football manager in my opinion. You also have to be very demanding. It’s a high pressured emotional job.

Sometimes it’s hard to be nice all the time when you’re demanding more from people/ groups.

I know a fairly prominent employee of the club, been in the job a fair few years. I was taken aback when he said Klopp was not well-liked amongst a lot of staff.

But at the end of the day, these guys have to be demanding so I don’t expect them to be everyone’s mate at work. Outside of work I’m sure they’re different, but they’re so invested in work their out of work persona is suppressed.

Do you want to be David Brent? Everyone’s mate, totally garbage as a manager or do you want to be successful and effective?

3.) 05 Jun 2024 23:47:42
Yea your right Ed1.he said Toshack wasn't nice aswel. he does seem bitter . I remember he worked with Souness at Liverpool n that didn't work out aswel.

4.) 06 Jun 2024 07:50:00
What have you got against David Brent and his style of management? Oh my god. Are you Ron Swanson?

5.) 06 Jun 2024 08:32:41
Ron Swanson would make a great manager MK.

6.) 06 Jun 2024 22:26:51
Any leadership position in any aspect of life requires a certain set of skills. Positive ones. But I don't think popularity is one of them, even though it could be a low priority plus. I think it's more important for the leader to be respected and feared.



25 May 2024 11:02:02
I know people would be happy for Salah to stay. but I can't see our owners letting him run his contract down and leaving for nothing next year . I think that would be a big mistake, surely he got to sign a year extension or be sold.


1.) 25 May 2024 11:41:40
As a business point of view the best course of action would be to sell. I personally don't really give a damn about the money side of things but if we need to sell to buy then yeah, the right offer comes in then unfortunately he'd have to leave.

Only thing concerning me is, where do we get his goals and assists from next season? I know everyone is replaced at some point but Mane wasn't. I fear we could have an issue with scoring goals unless Slot really unlocks something with Nunez or buys someone who hits the ground running.

We have Jota but he can't be relied upon, he knows where the net is but is always injured. Diaz I see leaving. If we are selling to buy I am concerned. We don't have enough to get in what's needed and won't going on 1-2 sales. I just hope Slot is given time because I don't think it'll be easy to begin with. He will need a few transfer windows to be able to compete in my opinion especially if Diaz and Salah leave this summer.

I'm always wrong though, watch. Next season we'll go and win the league.

2.) 25 May 2024 11:46:56
The power is with Mo at the moment.

3.) 25 May 2024 11:55:33
I see the confidence on this page is sky high in relation to how Salah and his contributions can easily be replaced. its the same guys who told us all how Lallana, Lambert and Balotelli and change in formation would replace Suarez goals.
We couldn't replace Mane in the last 3 years never mind Salah.

4.) 25 May 2024 12:05:30
Tough one. Because of the mass changes off the pitch if we were to sell Salah we’d probably need a right winger and a new Striker to make up the goals.

The right answer usually would be to sell, but Edwards, Ward, the other guy, Slot, coaches, keeper coaches, plus all the squad changes. It might just be a little too much in one summer.

5.) 25 May 2024 13:01:34
The owners have zero say in the matter.

6.) 25 May 2024 13:05:53
Difficulty is that it’s clear that Salah’s legs have gone and his form tailed off massively at the end of last season, another huge contract puts us in the position Arsenal were in with Ozil and that was not a positive situation to have a player in his 30’s on a huge wage who was in visible decline. I think if a good offer comes in we have to take it. It does leave the question of how we replace the goals and assists, but that’s a lot easier to answer with a pocket full of cash.

7.) 25 May 2024 13:09:34
3 players who could be argued are 3 of our most important players are all in the same situation with the negotiation power in their hands.

All 3 would expect huge signing on fees if they chose to see out their contracts.

Not LFC related, but De Bruyne is also in the same situation over at City.

8.) 25 May 2024 13:28:07
Have we not replaced Mane though to a certain extent? Sadio averaged 15 league goals a season with us but started almost every game on the left wing. We still get that now its just the goals are spread more between diaz, gakpo and Jota. the sadio of the last couple of seasons was on the wane.

9.) 25 May 2024 13:54:44
I wouldn't say give him a 3 Yr contract but 1 year one to protect us. Upto 100 million is a lot of money to lose . I'd love him to stay but we're not Man City etc we need the funds.

10.) 25 May 2024 13:58:27
Exactly. Where is Mane now and how many goals
Is he scoring? We replaced him at the right time and now is the right time to replace Mo too.

11.) 25 May 2024 14:00:19
I think the great thing with Mane was that he was a big game player and scorer of important goals not only in the league but in the CL.

The players who have come in for him have done well but need to show that they can also do it when it’s needed the most.

12.) 25 May 2024 14:11:39
The front 5 scored over 80 goals between them this season, we’ve replaced Mane.

13.) 25 May 2024 14:45:17
Yeh, a one year extension would be perfect.

14.) 25 May 2024 14:58:51
In order for this team to evolve, Salah has to be sold.

His been awesome for us. Brilliant numbers but that Afcon injury took him a long time to recover, and he will never get quicker or clinical even with the new haircut.

His decline will be a hard watch and because i feel his a proud man, he will want to prove a point every match. And if he doesn't get selected, God help Slot.

Again, his been immense for us but it will make good business sense to sell him.

15.) 25 May 2024 15:07:09
Stromsgodset, there are many people who would NOT be happy to see Salah stay as we have seen such people air those exact people so to say "people" would be happy to see him stay as if there is a general consensus is wide off the mark, IMO.

For me, it's a tricky one and also, there is a lot of recency bias as well due to the way Salah has performed over the past few months sinc he came back from injury. Also, there is a world where Big Arne may need to have as many senior players as possible still in the dressing room to rely on their exeperience to navigate his first season or 2 at the club.

Hence if we must keep him, a 1 year extension like @JN said, would be the best case scenario. On the contrary, if we must sell then, Salah has to agree to rip up his final year and leave. At the end of the day, Salah has the final say.

16.) 25 May 2024 15:34:21
Burger King is dead right, why would clubs want to buy him when they can sign him for free next year?

The glazing of players not good enough is ridiculous sometimes. Sell
Vvd replaced him with vdb sell Trent and play ramsay, morton can replace thiago, beck can replace robbo it goes on and on and on
Like bk said it’s the same posters who said we could replace Suarez with balotelli and lambert

Replaced mane? Must be earthing a different team he was a diffeeet class, never seen a winger track back as much as he did as well as being a two footer genius, just because it never worked out at Bayern doesn’t make him a bad player just a bad fit.

17.) 25 May 2024 15:59:33
And no
I’m not saying these youngsters don’t deserve a chance but to throw them in deep end is crazy move, hope you guys understand English isn’t my prime language.

18.) 25 May 2024 17:23:40
I'm sure there is curiosity on both sides. Salah may want to see how he plays under Slot. And Slot may want to see how Salah plays under his tactics and system. So a 1 year extension suits everyone just fine.

19.) 25 May 2024 17:58:35
Your English is very good Colonel, don't worry about it mate :) .

20.) 25 May 2024 20:05:31
The thing that also has to be mentioned is the possibility of Salah playing for Egypt at the Olympic Games from July through to August. To me that means he’s already going to be knackered by the time the season starts.

21.) 25 May 2024 20:47:01
Just to clarify. Which Mane are we on about?
The shot one towards the end, or the 2018 Mane?
Because we have definitely not replaced that guy ?.

22.) 25 May 2024 22:12:18
A one year extension will mean he’s running down an extortionate 2 year contract instead of a 1 yr one.

It’s not a smart move.

If Salah wants to run down his contract an extension won’t protect us. If he doesn’t want to be sold it’s just tough.

Probably a good decision by Salah, just not great for LFC.

23.) 25 May 2024 22:54:29
Throw any stat at me all you want but we have not replaced Manè. Nunez, Gakpo and Diaz can’t lace his boots.

24.) 26 May 2024 08:35:05
@VV, our pre-season games will probably have more intensity than the Olympics’ games.

25.) 26 May 2024 12:48:36
Yup. Right. We've replaced Mané. At 3 times the purchase cost, and 3 times the wages to be paid. Since we're supposed to be content with the 3 guys (Diaz, Gakpo and Nunez) who are giving us Mané's goal production.

Sure, we're not supposed to get into the finances. But if you don't consider that in your assessments, then we'll end up back to being mid table has-beens pretty soon once again.



19 May 2024 22:33:00
My thoughts about today, while it was a very sad day to see the legend that is Klopp leave. it was also a beautiful day. Great atmosphere, sunshine, a 2 nil win, so much love around the club . the ex manager making a new song for the new manager, that's why I love this club n football in general . Looking forward to next season with new man at the helm.


1.) 19 May 2024 22:55:33
I liked the fact he said get behind Slot. Hopefully it’s a case of meet the new boss, the same as the old boss.

2.) 20 May 2024 00:16:52
I wouldn't swap our time with Klopp for more trophies. We won pretty much everything under him anyway and each trophy meant a lot.

I liked the rollercoaster and the emotion rather than watching machine.

Today's speech will live long in my memory.

3.) 20 May 2024 02:02:25
Agreed Davey, I'll be rewatching that moment for a few days I think mate. Loved the speech.

4.) 20 May 2024 03:43:13
The speech was special, I have already rewatched it three times.
Cried like a baby the first time, he is unbelievable as a man, and a manager, Jürgen Norbert Klopp you are a legend!
The song epitomises the man, he was all about the club, the team and the city.
Love Him.



18 Apr 2024 01:03:29
Glad city n Arsenal are out of champs league . I know there english teams . but let's face it they wouldn't want us to win it . so we're still 6 ahead of arsenal n 5 ahead of city . that will do me.


1.) 18 Apr 2024 04:40:01
Arsenal, I don’t care either way. They’re a good club, with an improving manager, they just got outfoxed over two legs by a wily, experienced opponent.
As for City, any time they get knocked out of the Champions League is a win for football, even if it is by Real Madrid. With the latter, you simply have to doff your hat to them - they’ve knocked City out twice now, and that’s the third time Ancelotti has beaten Guardiola in a crunch Champions League tie. No matter the opponent, do NOT make them favourites against Real Madrid. Football doesn’t work like that.

2.) 18 Apr 2024 04:51:20
That’s very magnanimous of you strom! Personally I’d have been ok with Arsenal progressing but let’s face it, they wouldn’t have won it either!

3.) 18 Apr 2024 06:14:01
Just woke up to the city result and it’s glorious.

4.) 18 Apr 2024 07:53:02
Arsenal has spend close to 600 mill euros under "Project Arteta". They splashed 100 mill pounds on one player without threatning their FFP. And they will continue to spend untill they win the CL and or league. Hardly inspiring.

5.) 18 Apr 2024 08:46:16
Going on how Bayern have been this season, that result did surprise me. RM and City was excellent to see, City just wasted too many chances, they should of won that game. Fantastic to see them go out on pens.

6.) 18 Apr 2024 09:01:41
I had both Madrid and arsenal to progress.

People often overestimate British teams and underestimate the historical experience of perennial winners.

7.) 18 Apr 2024 09:05:47
How good was Jude Bellingham yesterday. That first touch and control to set up Rodryog for the first goal. My god. He litreally took out two city players with his first touch. The boy is the best english footballer and is winning it all. You could pay to watch him anyday.

8.) 18 Apr 2024 09:10:00
I for one wanted City to win. The more hard games they have before the end of the season ends, the better for our hopes of winning the PL.

9.) 18 Apr 2024 09:55:57
I was indifferent to whether Arsenal went through or not, but City going out made me laugh, specially Silva missing that penalty so badly. That was hilarious.

10.) 18 Apr 2024 10:06:08
I'm of two minds with these results. On the one hand I'm happy they both lost so morale of the team would be at a low. As a consequence, perhaps they'll underperform and lose a game or two in the EPL.

On the other hand they could feel that now that they have one less competition to worry about and train for, they could focus more on the EPL and make it harder for us to catch up.

All depends on the players and their manager. There's the loss of the "double treble" for ManCity and "feels like deja vu" from last year, for Arsenal.

11.) 18 Apr 2024 10:09:08
Prior to our Palace defeat, I was of the opinion that it would have been good to see City-Arsenal slug it out over two physically and emotionally draining legs in the semi final, giving us a better shot at the title.

After the Palace defeat, I enjoyed their exits last night.

European 'eritage ~Jose Mourinho.

12.) 18 Apr 2024 10:16:54
VV, I watched the game too, and also laughed when he missed. Told myself "yeah bud, what goes around comes around". ?.

13.) 18 Apr 2024 10:19:25
I wanted both to go through (not win it ) to hopefully take their eye off the league and give them those extra 2 games.

Now City are in the drivers seat and have the league as their primary focus.

14.) 18 Apr 2024 11:58:45
That defeat could also mentally and physically take its toll too though JK, plus if Chelsea take them to extra time and penalties at the weekend it could have a negative impact.

15.) 18 Apr 2024 12:48:06
Elliott - I’m sorry, man, but I can’t tell whether you’re being ironic with that well-worn and disproved theory, or you actually believe it.
City won a treble last season, winning the PL against Arsenal while knocking out Bayern and Real on the way to the final. The idea they will be slowed down by more games is complete folly.
Make no mistake, had City won last night they’d be lifting the trophy again in May. None of the remaining teams would have been strong enough to stop them.
City can hoover up as many league titles as they want. If they don’t win the league it’s a complete and utter failure. The Champions League is what they really want and need (1 win in 8 for Guardiola) .

16.) 18 Apr 2024 12:48:48
We need Chelsea to take City to 120 minutes on Saturday.

17.) 18 Apr 2024 13:21:49
LoweLFC, Arsenal got outfoxed by the team many in their fan base said where washed and they would batter w/ o question? Nah, they got exactly what their arrogance and hubris deserved going against yeah a poor Bayern team BUT one that still has experienced winners of this comp. still in their ranks.

Oh, and Arteta is not a good manager. He plays a good one on TV until crunch time and he gets happy feet and loses control and for the 3rd season in a row may well NOT meet expectations and will win nothing. Just saying.

18.) 18 Apr 2024 13:43:06
I have to admit I like Arsenal (the club) not so much Arteta tho but it would have been nice to see a great club like the Gunners win the CL. A proper club ?.

19.) 18 Apr 2024 14:02:12
Did we get outfoxed by Atalanta at Anfield, a team most of our fans said we should beat?

20.) 18 Apr 2024 14:02:18
Olired - I don’t disagree. It was quite funny watching Arsenal get knocked out and their daft fans resigned to winning nothing again. But Arsenal aren’t City and everything else the latter entail.
However, Arteta is quite evidently a good manager. Yes, he has spent a lot of money - probably too much - but he has led Arsenal back to competing again. He isn’t as good as Klopp, but then again who is?
He probably needs one of the two big trophies next season, however.

21.) 18 Apr 2024 14:23:29
Mcgoveb that had nothing to do with either set of players mate.

That was match day fans letting down the best fans in the world at home.

I pray they forgive us.

22.) 18 Apr 2024 14:46:58
I’m still laughing about that Silva penalty. Worst penalty ever. Even worse than that Arsenal one where they tried to do that Ajax routine and failed. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bloke.

23.) 18 Apr 2024 18:46:23
Macgoveb, try to keep up. Atalanta or us has nothing to do with how much gas the Arsenal fans (many of them) put on their team as if they have 3 CL's in ther trophy room talking down to Bayern, their fans and their pedigree. Stay on topic, please.

24.) 18 Apr 2024 18:48:20
LoweLFC, I think Arteta is a good manager the way Brendan Rodgers is a "good" manager. "Let's say it like this", as Klopp would put it, lol.

25.) 19 Apr 2024 13:05:30
I always want other English teams (especially the Mancs) to lose in semis.

Exhaust the players, fans miss out on a final - perfect ?.

Difference between the stats on Nunez n Watkins is . we play by far a more attacking play. a really good striker should have a lot more goals for us . look at salah not a natural striker but bangs them in . take Watkins all day.

Whoever makes the decision to buy sell players, should have had the salah situation sorted. if we going to get anywhere near 100 mill should have sold him. but some posters think we will only get 30/ 40mill for him then keep him . but it's a business at the end of the day. people sayin u can't force players out, you can by telling them they won't be playing etc. we r not city etc . we need every penny we get.
