Adrian a doubt for a Saturday, apparently a fan ran in to celebrate, slipped and took him out. A decision will be made tomorrow.

Lovren not included in the squad for the super cup due to 'Illness', either it is a huge coincidence or the club are working on his departure.

Or maybe I should just put my tin foil hat away.

Gomez and Matip are there as CB cover so I do not read too much into this but it is good to see the following young lads make it (Brewster, Hoever, Kelleher abd Elliott) - van der berg is not included so it must be a numbers thing so I only expect Lovren to leave if we get a decent sized bid, 15m as reported today is a very good price for the buyer.


2.) 13 Aug 2019 18:03:22
How is gomez CB cover? He’s first choice.

I have to ask, ed002 any truth in the Moreno rumours to Barca. Good luck to him if it's true!

WYred

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware, Barcelona are already discussing bringing in one first team starter at LB an one for the future at LB.}

Looks like Lazio could be his next destination.

Why are both the echo and Sky reporting this Alisson deal as breaking the record that city paid for ederson? It may be the premier league record but the actual record was Buffon back in 2001.

On the subject of Alisson not seen much of him but ed001 seems to rate him highly so thatll do for me.

Also gutted for the ox, the reaction on here shows how integral he became to the squad and hope his recovery goes well.

WYred

1.) 18 Jul 2018 19:59:52
Reporters only have a 5 second memory, they probably forgot all about Buffon being the worlds most expensive keeper until this deal is completed lol.


2.) 18 Jul 2018 20:04:30
It varies depending on which currency you use because of the fluctuation in exchange rate.

Buffon held the euro record. Ederson held the sterling record. Alisson breaks both records.


3.) 18 Jul 2018 20:39:02
It’s being reported as. PL record.


4.) 18 Jul 2018 21:40:36
Didn’t they pay 52 Euro’s but for Buffon and Lilian Thurman, so for 2 players.


5.) 18 Jul 2018 23:21:08
It’s as Adam said. Buffon, although more Euros, was sold at a time when the £ was much stronger against the €.

Hence Buffon in £ at the time (2001?) is less than Ederson in £ when he was bought last year.

Not much in it, mind.

And when you think about the inflation of transfer fees in the last 15-20 years, Buffons transfer fee was in the Coutinho - Neymar range in today’s market!

What’s most amazing is that, in light of everything, Juve STILL got a bargain!

In regards to the champions league it is a competition we all love but I feel it has also given a way out for many teams including us, to say, we finished top four it’s a good season.

Take champions league out of it and the only thing that should matter is winning the league (which only one team can do a year but you should be damn close in doing so) and winning a trophy.

Why has the champions league become bigger than the domestic league? don't get me wrong 2005 will live long in the memory but as an English club domestic success should be the be all and end all. For instance I’ll remember 08/09 as we came so close and even closer in 13/14 but I don’t remember the other seasons where we scrape 4th. Finishing top should be and always should be the aim with an FA Cup or League Cup (none of this carabao nonsense) .

WYred

1.) 04 Feb 2018 13:31:13
I don't think qualifying for the champions league has taken precedent over winning the title, it's just the minimum requirement from top 6 teams currently. I think if you asked most Liverpool fans they would prefer the domestic title and I think if you asked our owners they would prefer to be the owners that helped give LFC that. Where have you drawn this conclusion that the champions league is more important? It's more important for citeh currently because they haven't won it yet, and you can bet your bottom dollar that every manager within the top 6 absolutely strives to be crowned champions of the premier league, its not like citeh was the only team set out to try for the title this year and the other 5 just wanted top 4. it's just how the season has panned out with citeh being so consistent in results.


2.) 04 Feb 2018 14:04:03
Sorry WYred but surely you understand the financial rewards for UCL qualification and progression due to tv rights sponsorship etc etc. All fans want the big name players at their clubs, those players in turn want paying big money and want to be playing in the most competitive competition there is in club football the UCL. Its sad really that most clubs view the English domestic competitions as a hindrance nowadays due money pure and simple.


3.) 04 Feb 2018 14:44:06
Why not go for both? 🤔.


4.) 04 Feb 2018 16:25:09
I don’t think CL or top 4 has taken precedence over the league at all, but it’s about being able to realistically build a team that can compete. I would take the title over the CL and I would take a title over a top 4 space the following/ previous season. Money isn’t really an issue any more but top players want to play in the CL, end of story, without CL our best players, who we will have usually been forced to nurture ourselves from young talents because of not being able to attract top players, will want to leave for a better chance of winning trophies/ playing CL and so the cycle continues. There are extraordinary events of course, I. e. Leicester but this was an exception, not the rule, and i’ll be amazed if I see similar again in my lifetime. Top 4 and CL is not the be all and end all, but it is necessary to become and stay as a top team. I said at the start of the year Top four for us would be a successful season and I stand by that.


5.) 04 Feb 2018 18:50:44
Because it helps to attract the best new players.


6.) 04 Feb 2018 20:21:32
Correct stoneage 🤝.


7.) 04 Feb 2018 21:43:49
It's not always the case arsenal jus bought abumayang they ain't in champs league an also in 6th, also if u have a manager a player wants too play under that helps as abumayang has said he wanted too play under Wenger an he now playing for arsenal, as vvd wanted too play for Liverpool also.


8.) 04 Feb 2018 23:34:30
Apologies don't think i worded my point correctly. My point was that qualifying for the champions league was considered a success. I. e. we finished top four so we had a good season.

The only measurement for a good season should be winning a trophy. You could argue a title challenge is successful but only if you just miss out. But finishing fourth should not be considered an achievement it is a mere bonus that you have qualified for the champions league.

Obviously champs league has the money and attracts players, and in my original post that question was rhetroical as its money the makes the game go round which is an unfortunate outcome of the game becoming so successful.


9.) 05 Feb 2018 09:59:17
WYred, there's a difference between winning trophies and achieving targets. Both Wigan and Swansea have won major trophies since our last one but clearly they're not better teams than us. So we need a better way of measuring how well we're currently doing and that's the league.

Goals scored is a great measure of our attack, goals conceded of our defence and points of our general standing. If these records are going up or down season by season then that's measure of our progress.

Being in the top four isn't success in itself but it's a target that's shows we're improving. From 2010-16 we made the top four once, hopefully we going to do it for the second time in a row this season, that's progress.

If we start to come top four regularly then we can increase our targets to 'challenge for the title' and if we challenge for the title regularly we can increase our target to 'win the league'. That's the aim but it's a journey.

Saying we're unsuccessful because we didn't win the league is unhelpful as it wasn't a realistic target for us this season. Having a target of 'top four' and achieving that target shows we're on the right track.


10.) 05 Feb 2018 10:59:00
I think for this season if we qualified for champs league 2 seasons in a row that's progression too were we have come from, it shows a level of consistency in the league but obviously we have too take it too the next level in terms of winning leagues an cups, from the top too the bottom of the club as a whole we always should b thinking through the ceiling but these days money is king an we lag behind in that department as there are 5 or six teams as just as wealthy an 3 of them have juggernaut money.


11.) 05 Feb 2018 11:07:41
So the measurement for success is winning a trophy but you’d rather not be in a competition with a trophy up for grabs so you can focus on 3 other comps, at least 2 of which are less prestigious?


12.) 05 Feb 2018 11:35:43
I still don't think you're correct WYred - most people laugh at the few who considers it a success on it's own merit.

However, most things in life happen in steps. We've spent almost a decade out of the Champions League for the most part, so the first step is getting back into it and solidifying our position as regulars. It's a good indication of the path to success - no one really believes its the end goal of it.


13.) 05 Feb 2018 12:09:27
i think top 2 should should qualify automatic for CL and the winner of both cups get the remaining two place.


14.) 05 Feb 2018 12:33:32
Hailstones. aubumayang went to Arsenal because no other big club would buy him and he wanted to move! Also his current club are out the champions league so it made no difference to his current season.


15.) 05 Feb 2018 15:00:27
Tia, mate abumayang is quality he will bag arsenal a lot of goals bet u he has a field day in the premiership, no one wanted Suarez but we did, no one wanted coutihno we did, no one wanted Salah we did, doesn't mean anything they have a world class striker.


16.) 05 Feb 2018 16:11:36
Swish, I never said I don't want to be in the champions league, my point is that you shouldn't meerly aim for top four (you may during the season have to adapt your targets depending on results) but before a ball is kicked the title should be the aim plus any trophy your competing in.

ending a season with just a top four finish can be seen as progress from where we have been but should still be considered an average season at best.

This site is about opinions which over certain things will differ but it is what makes this site so addictive.


17.) 05 Feb 2018 18:36:26
how many clubs, Liverpool included, wish for top four, it brings so many pluses, meaning you have performed well in the bread and butter of the premiership, then to have a good run, in all the cups, hoping to win one of course, really being in the Champions League does attract the better players, and money,
this then means you can then strenghten your team, giving you a better chance to win games,
so the best teams, then have a much better chance of staying up there with the best,
we have just added VVD and Mo Salah, our full back situation looks so much better now, even Karius is improving, we have Kieta coming here in 4 months, Lovren looks good with VVD,
there to me I can see a big improvement,
if we can add a class midfielder, we can def set our sights even higher next season .


18.) 06 Feb 2018 02:24:55
WY, the aim is to win everything we enter, the top 4 is the minimum level we want to be achieving, not maximum. just cos that's what we reference as a milestone doesn't mean that we're only happy competing at that level.

Ed002, would love your opinion on the city news? Is this now the bar for other clubs? Any other clubs close to the punishment?
Personally I think it will get reduced to a year on appeal but still huge implications for the PL and city’s squad and manager.

WYred

{Ed002's Note - It is not a new issue. Other sides know that FA will extend their action on using unusual methods to try an approach FFP - several sides have already been charged - two PL sides remain at serious risk for not living within their means.}


1.) 14 Feb 2020 20:56:45
Obvious question who are the other 2 at risk?

{Ed002's Note - Aston Villa and Everton.}


2.) 14 Feb 2020 21:46:02
Much appreciated ed 02 I didn't realise evertons situation was that precarious.


3.) 14 Feb 2020 22:01:51
Thanks for the insight on the last few posts Ed002! It’ll be interesting to see how it plays out.

{Ed002's Note - Right, it could go horribly wrong for UEFA. This whole FIFA and UEFa campaign is not the fault of the English sides - who will simply move toward a better longer term solution. Right now Manchester City (and Liverpool) are not part of that - but they wil think about options.}


4.) 14 Feb 2020 22:29:24
It'd be a real tragedy if Everton were banned from the champions league.

{Ed002's Note - Everton have serious local problems which are more of an issue.}


5.) 14 Feb 2020 23:52:55
I think the city ban is bad for us. It means we have more games than city at a difficult time in the season. They have 1 aim when we have 2. I reckon it'll be closer next season.


6.) 15 Feb 2020 04:01:00
Robbiesline, you’re assuming City will be able to produce performances equivalent to what they have been doing whilst breaking all the rules. Somehow I doubt it.


7.) 15 Feb 2020 10:25:51
Robbie, how is the City ban bad for us, exactly?


8.) 15 Feb 2020 13:23:46
In terms of the league RM. And because City will be solely focused on it, where we will be focusing on the cl, they can rest players. I think it makes winning the league a bit tougher. I'm not saying it's terrible for us. In a big way it knocks our rivals down a peg and some big players might think twice about signing for them. I don't think they're done though. Hope so, but doubt it.


9.) 15 Feb 2020 21:55:24
Robbie, you have a point on that but for me it is not that relevant. Our boys and Klopp are ready to attack both fronts with vigor and determination. Also, I am and will never be arsed about what City or any of our rivals do cos really, it has no bearing on how our boys approach games. They focus on themselves and maybe we all should start doing that instead of always worrying about what City or club X are doing cos trust me, they don't care what we do.

I mean, the evidence is there to show that we can compete effectively on both fronts. Last season, we got virtually 97 points (wins the league every year bar the last two) and won the PL. This season, we romp the PL and in the thick of things in the CL as well. Based on such empirical evidence, I would not worry about our chances of winning the PL even tho City are banned from the CL.


10.) 16 Feb 2020 01:26:39
Robbie - I think we should move on from this kind of mentality now. If we want to be 'that' club then playing loads of games and splitting attention has to come with the territory.

5.) 02 Feb 2020 20:24:49
“We’re going to win that football league again” 👏👏👏
You’re a child of the Unfortunate 90s Ed!

{Ed001's Note - even if we had it won now, we aren't actually champions until the season ends, so why rush to celebrate? I would rather concentrate on winning everything we can than get carried away now. It is because I listened too much to Paisley, not the 90s mate. The medals were only good for one day to him and then it was about the next game and the next and so on. No point getting carried away with one, let's concentrate on winning more instead.}


6.) 02 Feb 2020 23:03:14
The season has been one long celebration for me, it feels so right, i've never seen my team win the league or at least I was 6 months old last time we did, never seen a group of players engage each other and enjoy their football like this lot, absolute joy to watch the energy they put into every minute of every game, incredible.
We are champions elect but it won't be enough for this group and the only question now is can they cope with the expectations and make it a 3rd CL final too, I know one thing though, they will give everything kicking and screaming to 'try it'. Enjoy it lads this is a very special and hungry team, the trophies are on route.

16.) 03 Feb 2020 09:40:51
Lol ed01. Given the amount to 1 0s and 2 1s we ve had. I think that showed we could have drawn them. And there are still points needed. A lot. And a few draws in a row and it doesn't look quite so sure. We'll it would be a wobbly and can we do it. We will. I'm really confident that we can win out next 6 games. Not do sure about city.

And with the form we're in (we never play the strongest side in the domestic cups) our first squad have a really good chance at the champions league. After what we did with Barcelona, we are well feared by everyone. I think we have a really tough draw, Athletico. Get past them and I think we'll make the final.


17.) 03 Feb 2020 10:30:28
Ed 01 unfortunately we live in a time of instant gratification but as I grew up in the Paisley era, I totally concur. Celebrate at the end of the season. Play every game as if it is our last and win as much as we can. No distractions. No p-taking. Respect every competition and opponent. Don’t moan when you lose, come back stronger. You’re only as good as your last game. All these cliches and I feel like they were the mantra I grew up to. Man that late 70s/ early 80s team would have made us Liverpool fans unbearable if the internet was as it is today.

{Ed001's Note - I don't think they are clichés, they are how it should be if you want to be as successful as you can be. You should be aiming to do better each and every time you do something.}

It's a strange one, really. We are going to win league. Yeah, we've been ahead before, but not like this. This isn't 13/ 14 when we had someone breathing down our neck the whole run or 08/ 09 when Utd had games in hand to close the gap. We're too far ahead.

Sure it's not mathematically over, but considering City's inability to string together this 14-15 match run of wins that we've been fearing all season, we'd have to basically go ahead and lose the rest of our games. That just isn't going to happen.

But there hasn't really been a moment where it's hit "yeah we've done it. " We've just kept churning the results out and leaving them all miles behind.


2.) 02 Feb 2020 19:01:27
City can only get 90 points maximum. So we need 18 points from 13 games. Only a complete fool would bet against us.

I'm saying it. It's won. And I'm so happy. I'll only celebrate when it's official, but I think even the kids would get 18 points from 13 games.


 

 

30 Jan 2020 11:50:50
I was firmly in the 'I hope we don’t just play kids in the FA Cup' camp.

However, I respect Klopps stance on the matter and I really hope the kids can pull out a win.

I know we have Chelsea, if we progress, but I would love to see us give the FA Cup a good go.

As is stands we are in a position to go for the Treble, obviously unlikely. Centurions and also Unbeaten. Each was a fantastic achievement but imagine if this team could tick off all three!

WYred

1.) 30 Jan 2020 14:11:44
I think we can beat Chelsea if we progress in the FA cup . we already beaten them at their own yard this season . And I also think the Treble is very possible . We are in a good shape in Europe and everyone in England fears us . The treble will be hard and tremendous achievement but its possible.

For me I will be over the moon if we just win the league with 95 points .


 

 

26 Jan 2020 22:10:15
The more I think about it the more I hope we don’t put out an u23 side.

I get what Klopp is saying and completely understand his viewpoint about the winter break and no games should be scheduled. But the senior players today didn’t show up barring Adrian so imo should be available for selection in the replay.

Yes, rest the first 11 and a few of the regulars from the bench, but they will still be training etc in the winter break and the likes of milly might be back then so it’d be a good chance to get him some minutes.

As it stands Adrian won’t get a look in so should play, as should Lovren who is now 4/ 5th choice dependent on Fabinho. Get keita, shaq and Lallana minutes, origi should play as he won’t get too many minutes then pad he rest with the young lads.

I’d be interested to hear your thoughts ed001 on this. I personally love the FA Cup and whilst we have a chance give it a proper go.

WYred

{Ed001's Note - I would like him to put out the same team and tell them to put it right. I am sick of this whining about winter breaks, just get on with it. It is getting embarrassing now. They don't know what a hard life is and they want a rest! I get that sometimes a player may need a rest to perform at his best, but that is why they have squads and they have days in between each match that they can have off for a rest instead of training. We all know what happens whenever they have a break - money spinning friendlies - so there obviously isn't that much need of a rest.}


1.) 26 Jan 2020 22:49:19
It won’t happen he’ll play the under 23 full stop.


2.) 26 Jan 2020 23:44:31
Ed01, In a letter sent to clubs from the Premier League in March, teams were told they were "expected to honour and respect the underlining rationale for the mid-season player break, namely to provide their players with a break from the physical and mental rigours of playing matches during the season. Clubs should not arrange competitive or friendly matches with other clubs during the mid-season player break. ”

I agree with Klopp that Liverpool FC should not collude with the FA in dishonouring and disrespecting the underlining rationale for the mid-season break by involving our PL players in the FA Cup replay against Shrewsbury. Just my opinion.

{Ed002's Note - It is no more than showing a lack of respect to their sides - something Liverpool are specialists in. No doubt someone will be scratching around and coming up with some excuse for Liverpool. Sounds like an interesting letter.}


3.) 26 Jan 2020 22:58:29
I second that Ed, pathetic really there’s so many people worse off.


4.) 27 Jan 2020 00:17:20
Ed001, if you don't mind, what do you mean by 'They don't know what a hard life is and they want a rest! '
Thanking you sir. ✌.

{Ed001's Note - why do I have to clarify it? It is blatantly obvious.}


5.) 27 Jan 2020 01:49:14
I agree Ed, spare the first team but put out exactly the same team again and tell them to make it right. There aren’t any players in that team playing too many games to desperately require a rest, and I’m sure most would be happy to give up a one week break to play at Anfield and get the chance to prove themselves better than they played last night.

Personally I am getting sick and tired of hearing about elite level footballers and there heavy workload.
They get very well paid to have to deal with this situation.
In the real world when myself and fellow posters hit the brick wall energy wise and its only Wednesday for arguments sake we have to keep going until its Friday.
We have no choice.
If they don't want the workload find something else to do.
Good luck finding another career that will match your current wages mind you.

Completely agree with ed1 here, this is where Klopp gets it wrong imo. He had a reputation for not whining about being in compromised positions but since he’s reached the pinnacle with Liverpool, that’s started to fade away, he complains about fixture congestion and winter breaks any chance he gets, and I agree it’s getting tiresome. It’s literally only big clubs that suffer from this, big clubs that get huge investments to put themselves in positions to not suffer from this, there are other teams in English football, that is essentially who these cups are for so that has to be respected. He took domestic cups in Germany seriously but it seems like he doesn’t over here anymore. We failed to beat a league 1 side with a team fully capable of beating them, a first 11 that won’t start against West Ham midweek with the exception of maybe Fabinho who can be replaced by Lallana unless he’s injured, so I fail to see why we don’t just field a similar team, at Anfield the chances are high that we get through, surely we have intentions of winning more that the PL since that’s very realistic this season. Until the FA change the whole replay fiasco then just accept it, we knew this before the game and just dropped off when we had a 2-0 lead, it’s our fault.

Ed01 half this team have been brought up in extreme poverty and some in war torn countrys, little distasteful to label them all as 'rich people' who have had a easy life and don't know the struggle of the normal working class. a lot of those players have lived through worst than any of us here.

{Ed001's Note - I am talking about their life now. They have it easy. I know their history, why even bring that into it? What has that to with whether they need 2 weeks off mid-season? If anything, they should remember where they come from and realise how lucky they are to live the life they do now and get on with it.}

I agree with that one ed1, I'm also of the opinion to make the season shorter by cutting out internationals.
Then have a 6 week international period once the season is completed.

Its better for internationals as they can actually train together for a sustained period, the players are picked over a season rather than 10 good games. I also think people would pay more attention to them, at the minute they are seen as a needless distraction.

I do get it's not that simple as different countries run their seasons at different points due to weather etc.

As for preseason I would love it to go back to predominantly playing english teams (not prem teams) but won't happen as there is too much money in pointless pre season trophies.

{Ed001's Note - the international game is suffering because teams don't get to work together as well, so it makes no sense to continue as it is. The Brazilian World Cup team of 1970 spent months together before the tournament as a team, that is why they were so good.}

Seano, with the game being in Turkey there is the potential that it isn’t a regular visitor to Anfield.

Problem is there are plenty of idiots that want a minute of fame. loOk at the lass in the final, no intention to go to another game and got publicity by being all over the news. Tv cameras are starting to get the right idea and as soon as someone is seen pan to someone else.

If they stop being seen, it’ll be eradicated as it negates the point in doing it.

Kloppo said he needs to be assessed in the morning, it was swollen yesterday and has improved. But it won't be definite till tomorrow.

I am pretty sure that Ed002 has said all window he expects us to go for a AM who can also provide cover for the front three. Until something changes don't expect daily updates.

TBH we should be praising the club as it clearly is very difficult to get information regarding transfers. so instead journos throw out drivel or vague guesses in the hope of being right or people to click on their stories.

If Klopp and his team want cornet I back him. I like both Kent and Wilson, but think they will fall short of the standard required.

It was a lucky break for their goal and for the first time in a long time we failed to grab a goal, it happens! Klopp hasn’t lost a two legged European tie with us, I think we should trust him and the effect of Anfield.

Good article mate,

Continuing with the three weaknesses I would say competition for RB/ LB ideally one player that could do both, if they exist!

Either Wiji adding goals to his game, I think he is more then capable or as you say Ox over the next 6 months if he gets to the levels he is capable of!

Then upfront I would have someone who can compete with the front three. I would love Werner but as ed002 has said we won't be getting him to sit on the bench and I wouldn't replace bobby he is integral (sorry westwood! ) . the other one I would get, completely hypothetical is Son.

Think athletics is different in that it’s the individual who cheats, none of the city players did and were the best over 38 games.

Should just go down as no winner imo. You can’t celebrate it and it would be tarnished as winning by default.

Biggest gap was 19 at the end of the season.
