Looks like VDB is going to Mainz, glad he’s getting another Bundesliga chance. Still think there’s a player in there!

Hopefully keeps injury free and can get a good run of games and experience!

The Southern Red

1.) 13 Jul 2023 19:24:40
I have seen him play plenty for Preston and it’s tough to judge someone playing out of position but he was pretty good playing as a wing back and wide centre half you would think he will have a good career in his natural position, for his age and position I think there is a chance he has a decent career here or if not at another good club.

2.) 13 Jul 2023 19:33:29
I was kind of hoping he would be given a chance to provide rotation and cover for RB/ CB to be honest. I Think there’s a player there that will eventually be a good squad option.



25 May 2023 11:04:28
Any interest shown in Philips? Hope we don’t price him out of a move again!

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware but he is available. Agent has spoke with Celtic.}



01 Feb 2023 08:24:09
Rumour has it one of the issues we had was we already had our non HG quota so would have to have signed an English player or U21.

The Southern Red

1.) 01 Feb 2023 08:43:09
Could have cancelled Melos loan deal.

{Ed002's Note - It is not as simple as that.}

2.) 01 Feb 2023 08:44:38
Could have just unregistered Adrian. Davies doesn’t need to be registered so he’d be 3rd choice.

3.) 01 Feb 2023 09:52:31
Deregister 1 of 3 GKs to add a 10th CM. Sure mate that's great squad management. Bet you'll be the 1st to abuse Davies if he's needed due to Ali and Kelleher getting injured or suspended.

4.) 01 Feb 2023 10:20:54
It's business. Ultimately you have to weigh a non-key player's disappointment versus the huge opportunity cost (income from Champions League) against each other.

Not sure if squad size was a major factor in not doing anything this time though.

5.) 01 Feb 2023 11:38:03
There's 3 midfield positions up for grabs Rambo with only 1 GK position. GKs don't need the rest outfield players do Many of those 9 midfielders we have can play in other positions like the wing or full-back and a number of them are also injury-prone. Meanwhile our second-choice GK has played a total of 3 appearances all season in token appearances in the domestic cups. To have a third-choice GK take up a non-HG place is ludicrous. So I actually would say it's great squad management.

6.) 01 Feb 2023 17:18:03
GK is a specialised position uncomparable to any others. Outfield players can cover CM in emergencies like Trent or Bobby. You do realise there's a reason clubs have 3rd GKs yeah? Can you guarantee the first 2 don't cut their finger cooking at the same time in the next 4 months?

7.) 01 Feb 2023 17:21:03
I've seen a fair few reasons not to bring in midfielders but what if our first and 2nd choice keeper both get injured and we had to play Davies over Adrian might top it. Having a non home grown 3rd choice is the awful squad planning.

8.) 01 Feb 2023 18:49:03
What on earth are you all going on about? You’re acting like the club never thought of all of the options you’ve mentioned. They will have obviously been through all options and considered the pros and cons of each.
In the end they decided not to bring in a midfielder for whatever reason. Just deal with it there’s just no point in this constant whining and criticising.
Personally I think Bellingham is coming in the summer and Klopp has been prepared to go with what he has this season because he knows it’s happening.
Do you really think that if they weren’t supremely confident of the signing they would sit around and wait for him anyway? It’s like you think we are being run and managed by group of chimps.
The CL is irrelevant to all of this the money is there to buy him and he wants to come but Dortmund won’t let him go until the summer.
If I’m wrong on this I’ll stand naked on the centre spot at Anfield and OneKiss, FlyPelicanFly and MFDOOM (VVVV) can all throw rotten fruit and veg at me whilst shouting I TOLD YOU SO over a loud speaker.

9.) 01 Feb 2023 20:20:59
You are right OK, I read it wrong. My point was Adrian being 3rd GK is irrelevant and the club will not deregister him to sign a CM. Squad planning is exactly what the club is doing. We are stacked with CMs and can't sign more without making space. Space will be made in the summer and 2 CMs will sign as Ox and Naby will leave.



24 Jul 2022 11:21:03
VDB looks like he’s heading to Bournemouth, great chance to step up into the premiership.

Not sure what that means for Phillips.

The Southern Red

1.) 24 Jul 2022 12:30:31
I think Phillips will be sold. Good luck to the lad. Never let us down and always given 100% in a red shirt.

2.) 24 Jul 2022 12:46:12
Good move for vdb if it comes off, be interesting to see how he performs in prem. Presume we get decent loan fee as well.

3.) 24 Jul 2022 12:50:27
Hello 6times, ( is that of a Night?, some going that puts James Bond to shame, 007 used to be able to knock a nail in with it!, not anymore alas) .

Fantastic Reference and Tribute to Nat Phillips, he would run through a brick wall for anyone.

4.) 24 Jul 2022 12:56:22
Where though, think Bournemouth were his Premier League option. Out of the Championship it is probably only last seasons 3 relegated sides who would have the money we would be looking for for him.

5.) 24 Jul 2022 17:56:23
Supposedly Phillips has suitors in Germany also.

6.) 24 Jul 2022 18:34:47
Personally I don’t believe PL clubs should be able to loan to other PL clubs as it gives them an unfair advantage when they can’t play against their parent team however them is the rules so we should do this more often to benefit us - if can’t beat them, join them and then beat them.

7.) 24 Jul 2022 19:30:09
How many teams in Germany bar the rich 3 of Bayern, Dortmund and Liepzig would realistically want to spend the £12-15m we would want to get Nat Phillips in?



04 Jun 2022 11:29:23
Do we still hold interest in Moussa Diaby?

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Seen our old rumour from the depths of Africa has popped up at Leicester this season and is playing quite well!

Fatawu does exist!

The Southern Red



10 Jan 2024 10:33:00
I’m super excited for Bradley to grasp this opportunity with 2 hands!

Got a good feeling this will be the Catalyst for Trent to move.

The Southern Red

1.) 10 Jan 2024 10:47:58
Trent to move?

2.) 10 Jan 2024 11:09:53
In to midfield.

3.) 10 Jan 2024 11:32:56
No one’s seemed to have suggested that Gomez goes back to right back and Beck who was recalled for a reason comes into left back.

4.) 10 Jan 2024 11:39:49
JK23 - I agree that is probably the most likely solution.

5.) 10 Jan 2024 12:16:59
Nah, he already "moves" into midfield from RB and plays in mid when required. Not sure what "move" means with all those considered.

6.) 10 Jan 2024 12:28:12
I'm actually preferring Gomez at LB at the moment, especially with TAA playing that hybrid role - brings a bit more solidity at the back for me. Think I'd stick with that and put Bradley at RB rather than throw Beck in at the deep end.

7.) 10 Jan 2024 12:49:21
Does Bradley get a run?

Will this lead to Gomez adopting the hybrid role from left back?

Will Gomez switch to RB and play that Trent role and Beck gets a run at LB?

Or do we just revert back to the normal 4-3-3 instead?

8.) 10 Jan 2024 12:51:03
That rb spot is Bradley’s over Gomez all day for me. If not for the injuries he would of nailed it by now, the question is who drops from midfield for trent.

9.) 10 Jan 2024 13:47:37
I just don't see Klopp giving up the option of Trent being able to create from wherever he wants without sacrificing the midfield numbers. Trent is a phenomena and the way we setup our teams and tactics suggests they know it.

With no Trent in the team, we just need to revert back to conventional tactics. That should be enough to beat most teams.

10.) 10 Jan 2024 14:13:52
Formerly_FlyPelicanFly, my sentiments exactly. There are other ways we can play to maximize our chance creation numbers so let's just see what happens. Maybe we can actually start crossing the ball into the box again like we used to cos that is a great source of chances for the likes of Darwin and Jota who are lethal in the air.

11.) 10 Jan 2024 18:49:07
no ones suggested it because we've seen bradley more at RB and have seen what is able to do.

12.) 10 Jan 2024 19:29:38
Great opportunity for Bradley tonight.

13.) 10 Jan 2024 23:35:56
Cheers faith ?.

14.) 10 Jan 2024 23:37:19
I don't know why people on this site are so obsessed about moving Trent into midfield.

15.) 10 Jan 2024 23:38:43
I bet Bradley plays.

16.) 11 Jan 2024 17:16:58
Darwin ain’t lethal in the air mate. He is not lethal at anything. Blooming love the lad though.



18 Dec 2023 09:19:08
Piero Hincapie looking for a new challenge, heard his name previously. Potentially not the right time in Jan? Or too expensive given his age and potential.

The Southern Red

1.) 18 Dec 2023 10:44:58
Good luck getting anyone out of Bayer Leverkusen this season.

{Ed002's Note - I would not be so sure.}

2.) 18 Dec 2023 11:28:25
He is not a first choice starter for them.

3.) 18 Dec 2023 11:30:59
Happy to be surprised, Ed.

4.) 18 Dec 2023 12:02:42
His agent is the same guy as Caicedo’s. That is reason enough to not have anything to do with him.

5.) 18 Dec 2023 13:34:02
ViktorVaughan, exactly. Not sure Klopp and the club is going to be dealing with that agent again after the Caicedo fiasco and his alleged involvement in that, IMO.

6.) 18 Dec 2023 14:19:23
What did the agent do for the Caciedo deal? I remember something but I’ve got brain fart here.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing.}



13 Dec 2023 12:51:38
Ed’s with Carvalho on his way back from loan - what do you think we should do with him?

Seems to be a square peg in a round hole for us but still a talented kid.

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - I can't see where he fits to be honest. His buy looks to be a mistake now that we have Gakpo, Jota, Nunez, Salah and Diaz, plus Elliott and Szoboszlai can fill in when needed. There just doesn't seem to be a place for the lad sadly. I think we need to look to get the best move for his career and let him go.}

1.) 13 Dec 2023 13:34:47
Maybe a move back to Fulham might help him progress again. Or to a team like Wolves where they have a decent manager in Garry O’Neil.

2.) 13 Dec 2023 13:34:53
Personally don't think he'll get a move in January maybe in the summer, I guess it depends on how Jota comes back from injury, I reckon the Club might be thinking about options with Salah off to Afcon and potentially an injury here or there. he does deserve a move to a club that'll play him all the time he has the talent.

3.) 13 Dec 2023 13:43:52
Not really Ed. I see Carvalho' potential to be groomed into another Jota. He has ability to play as 10 or winger. A bit similar to Elliot. His coming back would provide competition for that impact substitute position.

4.) 13 Dec 2023 14:49:50
I’d like us to stick with him if feasible. Maybe a loan to say a team like Forrest in the second half of the season, so he gets premiership games under his belt. If possible an 18 month loan to say Forrest would better, and the assess him. Would still have a couple of years on his contract by then.

There is a player there but he desperately needs games in the premiership to gain experience.

{Ed002's Note - He won't be moving to Nottingham Forest. And he would not get a game there.}

5.) 13 Dec 2023 15:55:30
Is he allowed to be registered with 3 clubs in 1 season?

{Ed002's Note - He won't be.}

6.) 13 Dec 2023 19:12:29
Yeah, Cav has a lot to learn and his attitude via his tweets and SM posts don't look like a guy who is focused. Not sure where he fits cos the likes of Elliott and Jones are way ahead of him right now.

7.) 13 Dec 2023 19:27:17
Carvalho reminds me a little of Coutinho in that he probably needs to be played in the midfield but would need time to mould his game to be suitable there in a Jurgen Klopp team.

8.) 13 Dec 2023 22:18:06
I think he had the ability to grow into the CM, LW of CF positions but isn't going to happen with the options we now have available. Clearly a number 10 player all day long so we should never have bought him. Shame because I thought he would do great and think/ hope he does elsewhere.

9.) 14 Dec 2023 04:31:59
We have 4 options on the left-wing (Diaz, Jota, Nunez and Gakpo) and 3 in left midfield (Jones, Gravenberch and Mac Allister) . Unless he changes his game to the center or the right side, I don't see how he'd get any game time with us? He's skilled no doubt and he has that homegrown "joker card" in hand, but best for him to move on. The club would easily make a profit on him, so no issue there either.

10.) 14 Dec 2023 04:56:08
How did he do during his loan spell? Did he stand out as being particularly good? Did he get a lot of games? If he did then perhaps it is worth trying to integrate him into our squad, but if not then there doesn’t seem much point in doing anything other than selling him.

11.) 14 Dec 2023 06:21:32
Seano he played 13 times across 3 competitions.

Only 3 of them were starts and he had no goals or assists.

Most of his substitute appearances were less than 10 mins.

12.) 14 Dec 2023 09:37:20
Seano he hasn't been given the chance it was an odd move tbh the signed him and Simons who basically play the same position and he hasn't got into there team. saying that he did play the full 90 last night no idea how he got on.

13.) 14 Dec 2023 10:12:53
Maybe a loan to Man Utd? he is head and shoulders better than any of their players. Probably not a good idea actually would come back barely knowing how to kick a football ?.

14.) 14 Dec 2023 13:29:14
He'd be their captain inside a week Nicol.

15.) 15 Dec 2023 08:40:56
Apparently Seven has said that Harry and Luke might be fit to play a part at the weekend. Speaking as a Liverpool fan I hope that he is right.



03 Nov 2023 11:41:53
Should we be concerned by Bajcetic injury?

The Southern Red

1.) 03 Nov 2023 12:15:03
He’s a kid still growing, these things will happen to players especially young ones.

2.) 03 Nov 2023 13:47:53
It's completely normal. Ramsay and Jones last season, Bradley this season have also suffered from "growing pains". It's just happens with young players sometimes, and you got to accept it and manage accordingly.
I don't know if you guys watch cricket, but Pat Cummins (Australian Captain right now) first emerged as a 17yr old, but got a serious stress fracture and had to stay out of the game for like 3-4 years.
Hopefully, Bajcetic recovers well, because that guy is special and has a long future ahead of him.

3.) 03 Nov 2023 13:51:53
Growing pains apparently…. think Gerrarf had them early in his career as well

Klopp says all will be well but it takes time…. we have to be patient.

4.) 03 Nov 2023 14:26:08
Klopps pre match interview he said it best, everyone’s body is different and deals with it differently. Stefan has talent in abundance at the moment he just needs the body to cope with it, himself and the club will give him time to get there.

5.) 03 Nov 2023 14:58:24
There were plenty here claiming that he was ready to fill no. 6 vacancy and that we didn't need to replace Fabinho.

There was also a few (ahem ahem) that said he needs time to grow into his body yet.

6.) 03 Nov 2023 16:04:16
"There was also a few (ahem ahem) that said he needs time to grow into his body yet. "

And what is wrong with that opinion or prognosis? Is that so far-fetched esp. since we have lots of examples to support this notion? Man, relax. Your attempt at gloating failed miserably here. Baj is not even 19 yet so it is normal that his injury could take longer to get healed . Again, relax.

7.) 03 Nov 2023 16:27:25
I think medical science has come on in leaps and bounds when it comes to this. You won’t see the likes of what happened to Owen and Rooney anymore.

They burst onto the scene in their teens and get massively overplayed so their bodies are broken by the time they reach their early 30s.

We are just doing what is best for Stefan to make sure he has a long and successful career. Hopefully that will be winning loads of trophies with us.

8.) 04 Nov 2023 08:46:22
Glaring miss that, Oli. Read it again.

9.) 04 Nov 2023 10:39:16
Take Michael Owen as An example practically finished by 26/ 27 through over playing . Get Andre ( or someone of that ilk in jan ) let Thiago go and let the new boy settle in the rest of season while letting stefan time to grow and develop and grow in to his physique.

Endo will be a squadie
Andre / Macca in the 6 rest of this year . Guarantee we will be talking about us having the best midfield in the league in terms of quality and depth by this time next year .

10.) 04 Nov 2023 11:01:04
FlyPelicanFly nah, you read it again. What's the "ahem, ahem" about? Care to explain that? Man, take a day off.

If he is to leave all I hope is that we don’t try to over price him and leave him floundering on loan for another 3 seasons.

Marcus Edwards I really like, would love to see him with us. Finally starting to show why he was viewed as a rising star! Plus appreciate his approach to move abroad to challenge himself.

Would also help with our ongoing HG issue, assume the elsewhere is Spurs!

Really like him, seems grounded and playing well. I’d expect him to take a step up rather than signing for a big club.

Thanks Ed completely agree - one question you mention Mateusz Musialowski my understanding was he was meant to be let go in the summer but some last minute change in deal meant it fell through.

Do you think his recent form is changing our staffs view?

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - To somewhere in Austria I recall. He is certainly talented and well liked but he may, like so many youngsters, want a fast track solution.}

Great review Ed, my one comment would be do you think Trent was at fault - in the dying minutes he gambled on trying to put pressure on a player he was never going to make and left a huge hole behind him which ultimately led to the goal.

Appreciate he’s only just back from injury and it’s being picky but at the time I was thinking he was too high for a team of 9 trying to hold a draw.

Do you think we will see jota dropped? He just seems so effective off the bench and we look so much better with Gakpo up to or even dare I say it Nunez - give him a run of games.

The Southern Red

{Ed001's Note - I don't see Jota being dropped, there was no reason even to start him over Nunez in preseason but that was the decision made. I think they just prefer Jota, though I completely disagree and would have him as an impact sub, which he is very good at.}
