Confirmed Allan back to Fluminense all the best to the fella, shame it’s not worked out so far!

The Southern Red

1.) 17 Feb 2019 09:39:19
Another victim of our recruitment policy.

2.) 17 Feb 2019 12:27:51
Too right Ron. Plucking a yoyng man from him comfortable home with no plan on how to benefit us, multiple randon loans all over the place givning him no chance to settle and kick on. Really infuriating that we do this, Anyowini (sp? ) and this Anderson Arroyo next.

3.) 17 Feb 2019 14:19:14
It was a work permit issue, I get what you are saying, but you cannot blame it strictly on the recruitment policy.

4.) 17 Feb 2019 15:43:02
They should be well aware of the work permit rules. How about this, if they need a special exemption for a work permit, target someone else? If they are not a player who is going to add something to the first team, why bother spending hundreds of thousands of pounds on them.

5.) 17 Feb 2019 22:02:03
And another one of BR's "mindless splurges" bites the dust.

6.) 21 Feb 2019 10:38:23
Hey at least he got to win some silverware, he's a champion of Finland! Still only 21 and has already lived in six countries, I wish i was as well traveled at his age.



13 Feb 2019 11:29:15
Rumour has it that allan has moved back to brazil on loan.

The Southern Red

1.) 13 Feb 2019 12:55:26
"Rumour has it" - Lemar back on the cards?

{Ed025's Note - "if theres any justice in the world" he will be zed.. :)

2.) 13 Feb 2019 13:24:51
I heard right about now it's fifty fifty.

3.) 13 Feb 2019 21:33:46
Ed025. Surely if we did buy Lemar we’d have to give him time to grow?

{Ed025's Note - nice one DPG..

4.) 14 Feb 2019 14:01:14
I remember when he made his debut on The Word,
He was up his own backside in those days with his 59s throwback hairstyle 🙄.

5.) 14 Feb 2019 14:59:57
You got the right guy there Ron?

6.) 14 Feb 2019 08:12:56
I've heard he's pretty 'dedicated' Ed. ;) Should sign him up.

{Ed025's Note - good stuff KK..



19 Jan 2019 10:55:03
do you think we will see an increase in loan deals nearer the end of the window for some of our U23's?

The Southern Red

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

1.) 19 Jan 2019 19:38:14
Any teams looking at Woodburn?

{Ed0333's Note - it’s amazing how far his star has fallen. From knocking on the first team door to being shunned by Sheffield Wednesday. I wonder what will become of the boy.?

2.) 19 Jan 2019 21:07:00
I'd love Woodburn to go to Leeds. Sure, he won't be first choice, but he'll get minutes and in a system that will suit him.

3.) 19 Jan 2019 22:05:33
Yeah what has gone wrong with this kid?

4.) 20 Jan 2019 00:16:50
Tbf Harry Wilson went to Crewe at a similar age and barely made a dent. He has time on his side.

5.) 19 Jan 2019 23:56:53
I have never seen him have a good game for us. Just not up to standard. I think he should be moved on personally. Shame but will likely ply his trade in lower divisions.

6.) 20 Jan 2019 14:44:29
Just not improved and maybe there's issues behind the scenes with his attitude.

{Ed001's Note - he is just a kid who is still growing, far too soon to write him off, no matter how his spell with Sheff Utd is going.}

7.) 20 Jan 2019 23:33:46
Lfcbadboy the lad is just 6 months or so older than say Rashford was when he played his 1st game for Utd, and if I remember rightly that was only because of an injury crisis at Old Trafford. Not saying he's going to be as good as Rashford but some perspective is needed. He was 18 and went on a loan that didn't work out and 6 months has been largely wasted but like a poster said earlier Wilson had a similarly disappointing loan at that age. if he gets a decent loan at a championship team and plays between now and the end of the season i'd imagine he would still be one of the youngest players in what is a very competitive league.

8.) 21 Jan 2019 18:54:47
Is Gerrard not interested?



14 Jan 2019 11:50:10
Do we know if there is anything happening with chirivella this window?

The Southern Red

1.) 14 Jan 2019 18:11:02
Is he still with us? Wasn't he loaned to romania or something?

2.) 14 Jan 2019 19:06:04
He's been playing most of the under 23 matches.

3.) 14 Jan 2019 19:21:57
He is too good for the u23 - great passer, good game management. He looks frustrated but Im not convinced he has a future with us. Ed001 might know better.

{Ed001's Note - he did look like he might have a chance but Fabinho has taken his place I think.}

4.) 14 Jan 2019 21:49:05
a shame i did genuinely think he had a good chance with us to atleast push for a squad player.

5.) 15 Jan 2019 02:38:11
Ed01, that must be the ever-question for academy vs buying aye? I feel as tho a youth has to be over the top good, or at least assessed that way, in order to get a shot.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate and this is why I would like to see something done to force teams to look to their academies.}



09 Jan 2019 17:53:57
So with all these questions being banded around regarding transfers thought i'd try and put together the VERY small summary of what is probably going to happen in Jan.

Please add any input if you want.

Ins: Non (unless we see a major injury to someone important or see more outs than i believe) .
Recalled loans: Awoniyi, Woodburn.

Outs: Non possible loans of youth.

Camacho - Sporting Lisbon (be suprised if he goes without signing a new deal) .
Awoniyi - another loan out as he doesn't have a permit to play for liverpool.
Wooburn - maybe he will stay as part of the squad. Lots of interest from the Championship.

We won't see Lallana or Origi leave this month as it leaves us light up top.

The Southern Red

1.) 10 Jan 2019 08:12:17
From BBC App

Liverpool are set to end Wales winger Ben Woodburn's loan spell at Sheffield United and will consider enquiries from Blackburn Rovers, Brentford and Hull City for the 19-year-old.

2.) 10 Jan 2019 10:14:15
Muscron GM looking to resign Awoniyi after his loan spell has been cut short.

Hi eds, With the recent comments about issues with youngsters worried about game time and career development.

I know currently we don’t have the correct structure but who do you think we should be utilising as youngsters and which ones are ready to be used as good backup/ options from the bench?

Obviously Brewster is a big one but I think we need to let Lewis have to opportunity to prove he can become deputy LB.

The Southern Red

1.) 08 May 2019 18:09:54
If the plan is TAA stays at rightback next year i'd like to see Jana Hoever get some games in the early round of the cups or maybe if any champs league games are dead rubbers. I know he's really young but he looks a bit special, and we'd still have Gomez to step in if Trent was missing for any of the bigger games.

2.) 08 May 2019 18:59:06
Lewis was torn apart by Everton u23s and lacks pace or defensive nouse. None bar Brewster are ready he may not even be, loans for Lewis and woodburn

Glatzel, Duncan, neco Williams, larouci best of the under 18s with hoever but far from ready for men’s football.

3.) 08 May 2019 19:03:21
Agreed naby. The kid did ok when he came on for lovren.

4.) 08 May 2019 20:01:36
Spot on ed thank you. I would add that my motm is taa, he basically made the winner himself. Not just for the quick thinking to catch Barcelona taking a siesta, but people forget he cleverly won the corner himself by being composed enough to play it off the defender.

I'm telling you now, this kid will have as big an impact on this club as Gerrard did.

{Ed001's Note - he was fantastic.}

5.) 08 May 2019 20:25:10
Youre right i think, its coming. He is brilliant. Im not sure about him. He is a brilliant RB and the longer he plays there the better he will become in that position.

But there is always talk of him playing in midfield. The last time he did, we were beaten. I think its because of his ability to spot and make passes and because he has a wicked shot. But there have been plenty of fbs or wbs who could pass and shoot.

I think we have the best rb in the league in taa. One of the worlds best in fact. Why change that?

6.) 08 May 2019 20:34:52
If Trent learns to defend, he could be like Lahm. I can see why he's wanted in midfield though. One of the best passers in world football currently.

7.) 08 May 2019 20:53:03
Trent CAN defend. He is extremely talented on the ball and is often drawn too far up the pitch by his desire to get involved. But he can defend. He didn't get rb of the year for his crossing alone, same with robbo.

The game is changing, 433 nowadays is different to 433 of 25 years ago. The fbs are our wingers. Our centre forward is our central attacking mid.

Its interchangeable. It can be 343 442 433 41212 4312 4321.and these changes can be made in the game. We have a fantastic manager.

And fair play to jose (NEVER thought I'd say that) for his comments about Anfield and Klopp.

8.) 08 May 2019 21:05:43
Trents crossing is his strength, and he makes so much for us. I think we’d lose something if he goes into midfield. We have the best defence in the league, it’s not like we’re leaking goals because of him. Sure he can improve but he’s bloody 20, given time, he could be our best ever right back. 15 assists from there is unreal, maybe hed get a few more from midfield but I think it would change the way we play, because who can we get that can match his style and offer the same going forward - no one for me.

9.) 08 May 2019 21:19:07
It'll be a Liverpool Ajax final. Spurs are done for the season.

10.) 08 May 2019 22:06:54
TAA is one of the most accurate passers (long/ short distance) in the PL, IMO. If he was a QB in the NFL, he would rank as one of the most accurate QB's in the NFL cos he can put a ball on a dime from any distance.



05 May 2019 20:57:43
Hi Ed's given Mignolet looks very likely set to move on in the summer, who do you think would be an ideal option to come in as number 2.

given allison will most likely be playing most games, someone experienced would be beneficial who could help with the younger keepers at the club. i can see one of our young keepers being third choice again.

Grabara is doing well out on loan, but might be more beneficial to send him out to somewhere again for the full season.

The Southern Red

1.) 05 May 2019 21:05:27
Joe hart.

{Ed001's Note - oh god no, he is no better than Migs.}

2.) 05 May 2019 21:21:21
Is shay given still knocking around. 🤣.

3.) 05 May 2019 21:28:10
I’ve seen Reina mentioned a bit, could do worse, knows the club, sure he’s happy to be backup considering that’s what he’s doing now. Gunna be Alisson for ten years anyway.

Diego Lopez still knocking about?

4.) 05 May 2019 21:33:05
Always thought Ospina was decent although not sure he would be available.

5.) 05 May 2019 22:55:43
Heaton or Pope. Whatever one that Burnley doesn’t want.? Not Hart though.

6.) 05 May 2019 23:57:30
MoTD fever from a month ago but Kieren Westwood, ticks a few boxes.

7.) 06 May 2019 00:36:02
I'd like to say one of our youngsters but that'd just be hindering their development which I don't agree with. Personally I think Alisson will be our number 1 for years now so the young ones won't stand a chance unless a youngster comes through with hands like dustbin lids and he is impossible to score against! .

I don't know who I'd like to see come in as a number 2 as long as they're happy being number 2 and decent enough then bring him in. I'd be happy enough if it was someone like Pope too.

8.) 06 May 2019 11:19:43
I hear David De Gea is looking - he could be our back up! 😂.

9.) 06 May 2019 11:30:39
The only problem with Pope or Heaton is that whoever comes in, if they're English and on the fringe of the national team, they can kiss that goodbye.

They just won't play enough in place of Alisson to ever get chance to show that they're worthy of another England call up.



05 May 2019 15:46:36

well done Huddersfield.

3.) 05 May 2019 18:26:50
And Brighton, with nothing to play for, went to the Emirates Stadium to play Arsenal, fighting for a CL place, and got a 1-1 draw. Another indication of what an inferior team can do against a superior team if they put up a fight. Good omen for Brighton versus Manchester City. Come on you Seagulls!

4.) 05 May 2019 19:15:55
Ole’s at the wheel - of a ramshackle three wheeler Reliant Robin.

5.) 05 May 2019 19:46:49
It just makes it harder for Utd to sign any non-mercenary quality players. It looks like they might have to settle on a rabble of Sanchezes. (Can I add that collective noun to the Oxford dictionary for a group of Alexis? )

6.) 05 May 2019 20:11:03
Is that the same Brighton that had nothing to play for that got a deserved draw at Arsenal? Not sure Man City will be fancying them next Sun at this rate.

7.) 05 May 2019 20:23:49
RedWolf. I'll be rooting for them, but I do feel that our hopes dwindle if Leicester can't get a point. They still have 7th and Europa League to play for.

8.) 05 May 2019 22:54:07
I feel you, Epic lad. Just keep believing, man. I will continue to believe until it is no longer possible. I owe this team and this manager that much with what they have done this season.



28 Apr 2019 09:45:10
I know it’s been mentioned that Shaqiri will probably not be here next season, can the same be said for Lallana?

The Southern Red

1.) 28 Apr 2019 10:24:43
He might play himself back into the team. He showed an interest in working hard the other night.

2.) 28 Apr 2019 10:50:17
If any club shows interest, neither will be here next season. Lallana bcoz he is past it and injury prone while Shaq is simply not a Klopp player. It is probably the reason why Brandt is of interest. He can fill in for both their positions.

3.) 28 Apr 2019 11:08:27
Ed02 has intimated that Shaqiri has had an 'issue' for some time, he mentioned it again on Friday. Shaqiri had been doing well for a while, so it would appear there are genuine reasons for Shaq not playing.
Ed02 did not elaborate further but I think there is more to it than a bad attitude or being lazy. Maybe Ed02 will let us know.

{Ed002's Note - I explained exactly what it is and it is nothing to do with attitude. It also kept him out of the Swiss squad and tehy also explained. The fans decided to ignore this explanation as well as mine and suddenly it is him being lazy or having a bad attitude?}

4.) 28 Apr 2019 11:34:18
Lallana has played one good game in over 2 years then he got himself injured during the international break. He probably hurt his back picking up the £5 million he has collected this season.

He needs to be sold but who would want him?

5.) 28 Apr 2019 12:04:56
Shaqiri has a groin issue, as per ed002's previous explanations. Whether that means he has a slight niggling injury that won't clear up, or if he just can't stop playing with it is anyone's guess.

6.) 28 Apr 2019 12:08:07
Thanks Ed02 for the reply, I actually think Shaq has done well this season in the games he has played. I hope some fans now understand it is not his attitude and support him more.
Unfortunately blaming his attitude is an easy stick to beat him with due to issues at previous clubs. I cannot fault him and hope he is here next season.

7.) 28 Apr 2019 12:30:57
The Swiss national team tweeted that Shaqiri had an inflamation of the groin when he was last on duty with them, and I'd imagine it's been a recurring problem for a while given his lack of game time. Not rocket science.

Lallana showed when he got back in the team a month ago that he can recover his form despite his injuries over the past couple of years, I'd be inclined to keep him for now.

8.) 28 Apr 2019 12:25:50
Markp08, So another player, this time Lallana, gets hammered for having the misfortune to get injured and for having the absolute temerity to still collect his wages. He has a contract with a Liverpool - what do you expect to happen, that the club should simply stop paying injured players or that the player should refuse to collect his wages? Do you really think Lallana is happy being injured and not having the opportunity to contribute to this wonderful season our club is having? How about the Ox - 12 months out injured, still got paid, should we hammer him too?

{Ed025's Note - i think your being a bit harsh on mark there WW, of course people would have concerns if players are continually injured, if you ran a company and an employee was off sick for long spells at a time still drawing a wage im sure you would be concerned as well, i know injuries happen mate and its part and parcel of the game but you cant blame people for being concerned..

9.) 28 Apr 2019 14:27:00
Lallana and shaqiri have played well this season. I expect one of them to leave and i would guess he won't be swiss. Shame as i like lallana.

10.) 28 Apr 2019 12:55:24
Ed025, no mate, I’m not having it. There is a nasty trend developing with some posters hammering players for getting paid their admittedly huge wages while being injured. And it is selective, too, with Sturridge and Lallana getting it in the neck for being ‘soft’ but the Ox and Joe Gomez getting a free pass for being ‘unlucky’. Of course, like most fans I get frustrated when a player suffers a string of continuous injuries and I do get concerned but I really don’t believe that as professional footballers they would rather be on the treatment table than on the pitch and their wages are irrelevant to the situation. I will turn your example around - if you ran a company and one of your employees was sick or injured, would you tear up a legally binding contract and refuse to pay them? I think we should save our criticism for the likes of Markovic who wasn’t injured and wasn’t playing but apparently refused to take the moves on offer.

{Ed025's Note - you do have a point WW and i can see the two sides of this argument, if you win something it will not be an issue so lets just hope its not mate..

11.) 28 Apr 2019 16:20:32
Your the man Ed025 but he does not have a point at all. Gomez had a broken leg and Ox ACL both severe injuries. Regarding Sturridge it has been well documented that he has to be 100% in order to play that is just the way he is. As VVD said a couple of days ago "players always have niggles and knocks at this stage of the season but I will play". That is a completley different mentality to Sturridge and Lallana.

Lallana had a great game v Mboro over 2 years ago (I was there) and he thought he was Billy big bollocks. He believed his own press got far too comfortable and thought he was Messi and has never really been seen since. Was always spouting his mouth off doing stupid interviews and extra things away from concentrating on the matches. Same as Sturridge actually more interested in music and hat design.

Yes I have a small business I have had to go to a tribunal due to a very work shy employee a few years ago. The tribunal found in my favour as it was constant not doing the job they were being paid for.

WW I think you are a top poster who always sticks up for the team and goes to the games and gives support but to compare Sturridge and Lallana to Ox and Gomez is 100% out of order.

{Ed025's Note - i think you both make fair points mark and im sure a lot will be split on it mate..

12.) 28 Apr 2019 16:28:45
Ed025, a typically honest and even-handed response from you. Are you sure you are a Blue Nose?

{Ed025's Note - i am mate but im also a football fan and a scouser, if everton cant win anything then if liverpool can then im more than happy with that..

13.) 28 Apr 2019 16:35:06
I bet you never thought 30 years ago you would be editing an LFC forum about work shy players!

Pleased for you that Everton are showing some promise I think they will do better next season. I have my apartment booked the day after the Wolves game I think I picked the wrong day for the parade it will be a few weeks later.

{Ed025's Note - i certainly did not mark, i still think the reds will win one of trophies this year though mate, but even if they dont they have had an excellent season and you should all be very proud, any other year and liverpool would have won the league could still happen..

14.) 28 Apr 2019 16:58:19
Do you think we will beat Barca? I think it is 50 - 50 because Messi is just out of this world. If Messi is on his best form turns up I am not sure anyone could stop him. Maybe VVD can, time will tell.

Thanks for all your hard work Ed I think you are top guy.

{Ed025's Note - cheers mark, like you i think its a 50/50 shout but if my hand was forced i would have to plump for liverpool, the barca defence is not as good as yours mate and that could be the telling factor as both have a potent attack..

15.) 28 Apr 2019 17:09:46
Markp08, you put up a good argument as always but I just don’t agree with it this time mate. Some players just have a different physiology and while one can play with a niggle or two, another can’t. God knows I’ve thought some dark thoughts about Lallana and Sturridge over the last couple of seasons but that was through frustration that they weren’t available to assist the cause. Thinking rationally about it, any player who is sick or injured is not doing the very thing he loves to do, that is play football (unless it is Danny Rose apparently) and should be pitied not battered. I don’t expect you to agree with me and I do respect that your point of view is prompted by your love and support for the team so let’s call it a drawn debate.



23 Apr 2019 20:34:56
Given the recent links to Felix from Benfica, what are your thoughts on how Thursday’s youth match final will go?

Jordz he hasn’t he has played predominantly LB, only played about 3 games CB.

I think if we are buying him for LB then it’s a kick in the teeth to Lewis, at least give him a chance to prove he can cut it at a higher level.

We don’t want to be showing to be blocking youth’s paths to the team. It will have a LT negative impact.

{Ed001's Note - I think your problem is that you have been sold false hope. Carrier pigeons (I believe) are extinct. So the ones you are sending out are obviously just ordinary pigeons and are not delivering your messages and that's why you have got no response. You will probably see some old dear throwing bread for them in the local park.}

The other issue around Twitter is this oh we are getting £20m for Ings we have an extra £20m to buy players.

Then they list De Ligt and Pepe etc and give a total. Which is too football manager for the real world.
