BBC Gossip column reporting LFC interest in Birmingham City's Jude Bellingham.
Imagine the Kop singing "Hey Jude", that would be special.

Like it.

The Ox has signed a new contract extension. Could be a key player for us this season.


1.) 22 Aug 2019 19:27:41
Glad to hear it. Ox seems to be a good person to have in the locker room and he can have a real impact as the season goes on.

2.) 22 Aug 2019 19:35:57
He will be a key player.

3.) 22 Aug 2019 19:40:53
Like a new signing. The English Be Bruyne.

4.) 22 Aug 2019 20:02:45
I was a big believer in Ox before he came to Liverpool but I’m slightly surprised that the club have extended his contract given his injury.
He’s not ‘like a new signing’ because he’s damaged goods, as harsh as that sounds, and would we even sign him at all if he’d had that injury back then?

5.) 22 Aug 2019 20:10:00
Sign new deal get MOTM vs old club. Not a bad few days eh.

6.) 22 Aug 2019 20:53:31
Nice to see you stand by our players juicer, damage goods is fecking well harsh, maybe you should try and support the team and players, instead of putting crap like that.

7.) 22 Aug 2019 22:28:11
think the juicer has been juicing too much and his brain has gone to mush.

8.) 22 Aug 2019 22:56:42
He’s not ‘like a new signing’ because he’s damaged goods,
Wow . most of our players have had an injury in the past including Salah and Mane . are they all damaged goods? .

Look I do have a concern that Alex gets injured quite often, probably the way he plays, don't know . But unfortunately there are players that have this problem and these players sadly never achieve their full potential.

9.) 22 Aug 2019 23:06:02
Sorry lads. I’d have waited until the season end before offering him an extension but I certainly hope he comes good again and stays healthy. As I said, I always liked Ox and was very supportive of his coming to the club. I think he’s a favourite of Klopp’s, which is fair enough.

10.) 22 Aug 2019 23:18:36
'He’s not ‘like a new signing’ because he’s damaged goods. '
Best supporters in the world!

11.) 23 Aug 2019 08:39:59
I agree juicer turn of phrase wasn’t a particularly nice one, but i take his central point. it seems slightly odd to extend now when we haven’t seen if he will be able to return to his pre-injury form. At the end of the day, we’re emotional supporters but the club are hard nosed business people. I hope to goodness he can get back to how he was playing for us, he was brilliant.

12.) 23 Aug 2019 08:42:06
Thunderbird - thankfully we live in a democracy so the majority of fans count not the minority.

13.) 23 Aug 2019 10:33:54
I mean we have club doctors and all kinds of guys in the fitness department who constantly assess Oxlade, I'm pretty sure the club are well aware how his injury has healed and whether it's a big risk or not. Better to leave them to weigh that up than assume he's going to be made of glass because of a freak injury.

14.) 23 Aug 2019 12:15:55
Do Man City consider KDB as "damaged goods? he like the Ox has suffered some pretty serious injuries in his time in England.

15.) 23 Aug 2019 19:16:57
Happy for the lad great person and player someone I would like to see at the club for his entire career.

16.) 23 Aug 2019 19:52:49
Signing a year extension was nice touch from the club to show AOC that he's highly valued. He lost out on a full year of his career and nice to see that Liverpool are showing him that he's deserving of making up for that year he missed out on.

Clearly those within the club have seen he's worked hard and shown a great attitude to earn an extension. He's still reasonably young so a longer contract can't be anything other than a sensible choice.

Madness to see some fans not in full support of this decision, the same fans who probably moaned when lovren got a new deal in the past, he'd probably be gone on a free transfer by now without it.

17.) 23 Aug 2019 22:04:40
Lot of people didn’t fancy the ox when he signed I myself was happy 😃 tho I did think the fee was astronomical. But I like him, as a player he turned the doubters around he seems like laugh . I will stand and argue with anyone who doubts him and I think it’s class offering him a extension but nothing I wouldn’t expect the club to do. Some of you still don’t get what it means to be a red YNWA happy bank holiday guys.

{Ed047's Note - I liked him but always thought he flattered to deceive, never quite reaching the level I’d hoped for.

His injury record is shocking and from that side of things was not sorry to see him go.

Nice lad though and wished him well when he went.

18.) 24 Aug 2019 11:02:53
Sorry Har, but I just happen to think the timing is a bit strange, that’s all. It’s nothing to do with supporting the Ox getting a new deal, I don’t think there was any rush for him to sign was there ( I might be wrong) . I don’t think there’s anyone that can be sure he’ll return to his pre-injury form and that’s all my point is. We all have to wait and keep everything crossed that he will do, but football is littered with players who were never quite the same after injuries. I personally just think it could have waited to Christmas that’s all.

19.) 25 Aug 2019 00:08:38
@lfchopeful I understand your caution but it's just 1 year extension it's not that big a gamble really., just a nice case of backing from the club to show that we believe he's worthy of getting back that year he missed out on.



29 Jul 2018 16:22:23
Ben Woodburn on loan to Villa.


1.) 29 Jul 2018 17:10:10
Good move, maybe he'll start being recignised as the top talent he is when people see him playing week in week out in a good competitive league.

2.) 29 Jul 2018 18:26:46
His cross for Shaqiri was sublime and his awareness was excellent. I like Woodburn a lot quality player.

3.) 30 Jul 2018 14:54:50
Id love to see him playing more regularly and getting a chance to establish himself.
He has shown the ability to do something out of the ordinary but he won't get many chances to show that this season again unless he moves down a level.
Seems like the perfect move for me.

4.) 30 Jul 2018 21:08:56
I like Woodburn a lot too, but I just don’t see him making the grade at us I’d love to b proved wrong.



27 Dec 2017 17:14:36
75m fee agreed for VVD.


1.) 27 Dec 2017 17:23:44
Ooohh boii. This site going to have a meltdown now. Can see a lot of fighting over this one.

2.) 27 Dec 2017 17:29:22
Don't know if I should be happy or not. Last year he was beast, ine of the best centre backs in the league. This season he is below avarage, hope it was all because of what happend in the summer. But still 75mil looks too much. If tranfer happends let's hope he can prove all the doubters wrong. YNWA.

3.) 27 Dec 2017 17:29:26
We could, and should have bought a bloody good keeper for that.

4.) 27 Dec 2017 17:29:48
No pressure there then,

5.) 27 Dec 2017 17:26:14
So cheating works and FSG went back on their words did they? Or the apology was meant for the previous owners of S'ton not the current one - so it didn't matter now?

{Ed002's Note - I am sorry? You think the apology to Southampton that FSG made in an attempt to avoid further charges of unprofessionalism and tapping up means nothing now? The charge remains on file with the Premier League as I have explained.}

6.) 27 Dec 2017 17:38:01
Ed002 can you clarify the bid being accepted? I've noticed it has come from Twitter so remain skeptical!

{Ed002's Note - No, I cannot confirm anything at this time.}

7.) 27 Dec 2017 17:41:15
Only thing I would say, some doubted Klopp over buying Ox and Salah, look how they turned out. If it is true, I am sure he will be a mega signing and hugely help our defence, but we need a £75m goalkeeper more in my opinion. Our defence has improved this season, our no.1 keeper hasn’t and Karius isn’t world class.

8.) 27 Dec 2017 17:42:22
Thanks anyway, I'm sure all will be revealed in due time! My pessimism makes me think this is the start of a bidding war.

9.) 27 Dec 2017 17:42:49
Ed I think kwkhong was being sarcastic mate.

10.) 27 Dec 2017 17:46:21
I doubt anyone else is going to offer more for a player they know wants to join Liverpool. Yes the fee is high but 15million of that at least is an apology.

11.) 27 Dec 2017 19:43:09
Welcome VVD. I’m going to go out on a limb now and say SoHa sign De Vrij lol.



03 Mar 2017 07:07:39
Any truth in these Lacazette rumours?


{Ed002's Note - Interest in Lyon's Alexander Lacazette from Newcastle and Inter has long gone. Additionally, whilst Guy Hillion has continued to extol his virtues but there is no support whatesoever from the folks in London for a bid at this time - so prior interest of Chelsea has gone. Barcelona, Atletico, Juventus and Spurs had him watched late last season - but Barcelona had another solution in mind for what they want and will not be following up. Juventus took it no further and moved to hold talks about another player and Spurs purchased Janssen but may still want to add a striker in the summer - and Lacazette may become an option again so I would not discount them.

West Ham enquired after Lacazette's availability previously and submitted two bids that were rejected - but wages and the lack of desire from the player to move to a club like WHU means that option has probably gone - plus Lacazette will want Champions League football.

Arsenal decided to asking price was too high in the summer and opted, for reasons beyond me, for Lucas Perez. I don't know if they might return in the coming summer but they will be in the market for a striker and Lacazette might well be a good option for them - much will however depend on who the manager is.

He is not first or second choice for PSG but they could potentially turn to him if they fail to bring anyone else in - I think a less likely option.

I am not aware of Liverpool showing any interest in the player, but (a) if they look to move Sturridge on (which I think they will, (b) if Liverpool qualify for the Champions League, and (c) if Liverpool have the stomach to pay what will likely be €60M for the player, then Lacazette might well be an option.

Lacazette is a player that Mourinho has looked at from his time at Chelsea, but any interest will depend on what happens with Ibrahimovich. Right now they have shown no interest.

Lyon are very difficult to negotiate with and they may well see an Gallic shrug in response to any initial bids. Lacazette wants English money and Champions League or Juventus. Lyon will look for at least €10M more for a sale to an English side as they know what they can expect from elsewhere. Two French players who have played in England have been providing advice to Lacazette that it is not essential to move to England immediately, but I suspect he has other ideas now.}

Thanks for the detailed response!

18 Dec 2018 07:47:22
This must be the first upcoming transfer window where I am not really bothered about us adding to the squad, apart maybe some CB injury cover.
Anyone else think we barely need any additions?


1.) 18 Dec 2018 08:14:13
We need to get rid of a few that’s it for me.

2.) 18 Dec 2018 08:14:53
I don't think we need anybody to be honest mate, summer will be a different story but certainly not in January.

3.) 18 Dec 2018 08:31:32
We have Phillips and Masterson for CB cover.
May as well sell them if we buy someone else in.

4.) 18 Dec 2018 08:49:16
Quite right there, have not even thought about options for January window which is quite new and weird for me.

Having said that we could do with cover at LB, perhaps a versatile player that can play lb and cb.

5.) 18 Dec 2018 09:52:35
I would move on Moreno and Lallana if good offers are received and only if they can be immediately replaced. I would normally have moved Clyne on also, but given his okay performance against ManU and the Gomez situation, I would hold on to him until the summer. I'm of two minds about an AM. We have Shaqiri who plays there. Sturridge who can also fill in. And Ox coming back towards the end of the year. So i don't think there is any urgency. Unless there is an exceptional talent out there somewhere. Then I would still go for it.

6.) 18 Dec 2018 10:12:22
Not quite sure why we don't anybody? this is probably the season to invest in and we are 21 games to the title. If it were me, i would invest in the club right now, buy an impact creative player (pulisic) a striker (if we sell all 3 we have) and a robust no nonsense defender (some one older with winning experience i guess) .
I don't want to lose our title challenge and CL challenge to injuries and injuries are beginning to creep in the squad. i'd definitely look to invest if players are available.

{Ed002's Note - And where would the money come from? And when would they get a game?}

7.) 18 Dec 2018 10:23:37
Efforts should be made to sell Moreno and Matip, they are not a reliable backup to our second choices let alone 1st choices.
One of Origi or Solanke should be loaned or sold if possible. I don't see both getting much game time.

8.) 18 Dec 2018 10:30:01
Matip has played well this season when called upon. He’s a sound 4th choice.

9.) 18 Dec 2018 10:56:32
I would try for pulisic just to make our interest official. Where the money comes from I'm not sure but that's upto the owners to find. Get in there before anyone else does. Summer is going to be manic especially as united will be after a complete new squad. As the ed said yesterday I think. . every team could do with pulisic.

10.) 18 Dec 2018 11:14:53
I don't talk about money here ed002, it just makes things complicated :) .

{Ed002's Note - So in which case it is all simply fantasy football.}

11.) 18 Dec 2018 11:27:54
Correct Sir. id love to sign players so we can win the title. Of course that might be out of bound for the club to do. Just speaking as a fan, i really feel Liverpool have a chance to win the title this season and i don't want it to fail because so and so player got injured at a critical moment of the season. But of course club cannot be run that way.
Still i'd like to see us strengthen further in January. But since there is not even any remote news of Liverpool interest in anybody, i'd give it a rest.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool as you are aware are intent on buying success but at the same time they are constrained by regulation.}

12.) 18 Dec 2018 11:52:06
There are a bunch of players we could get off our wage bill that can be easily replaced by academy players or not need replacing at all like Solanke, Lallana, Moreno, Migs, Origi, Chirivella, Markovic etc. I am sure that we can afford someone like Pulisic if we offload the aforementioned but so many changes will happen in the summer rather than January.
Regardless, I still think we need to sign a top quality wide player to compete with Salah and Mane if we are challenging for the UCL and league. The last thing we need is to have both wide players knackered like last season. City have Mahrez who can step in for Sane and Sterling and we could do with some top quality like that.

13.) 18 Dec 2018 14:50:58
No money = no honey. Fact of life. 🏆.

14.) 18 Dec 2018 18:45:28
If we somehow got decent offers for Lallana, Moreno, Solanke and Origi AND have a little something in the piggybank, Dortmund still wouldn't sell to us right now. They lead Bundesliga and for the first time in a decade or so Bayerns hegemony looks under real threat.

Would we sell Mo or Sadio to Real in january, even for £200m?

15.) 18 Dec 2018 18:47:16
@Indian Buzzer. There's no way we can let Mignolet go, unless we have a backup keeper already lined up. I shiver with the thought of Allison getting injured and having Migs in goal, but while I'd like to see one of the young keepers given a chance to shine, I'd rather they weren't thrown in at the deep end for 4-5 games or even longer. It could completely ruin their potential career.

16.) 18 Dec 2018 20:47:33
For me I’d prefer Moreno, Markovic, Mignolet, Clyne and Origi. If good offers come in for likes of Lallana or Sturridge re assess from there.

I think we could cope with what we have for remainder of season.

17.) 18 Dec 2018 20:47:33

18.) 19 Dec 2018 00:17:05
I'd just think it will be replacing who we sell, if we sell anyone who's currently being used in the squad that is.
So for example if Moreno was to go in January, we'd likely try and replace him if we can.

19.) 19 Dec 2018 07:22:40
“No money = no honey. Fact of life. ”

Unless you’re a bee keeper.



07 Aug 2018 07:30:50
Man Utd and Chelski seem in disarray, Spurs haven't strengthened. New manager for Arsenal.
Could be a great chance for us this season. Could be between us and Citeh for the title, what do you gents think?


{Ed025's Note - i think even a millwall fan would realize that willo..

1.) 07 Aug 2018 07:46:05
Arsenal will do well with a new manager.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 08:02:06
A few nights after the CL final, I had a dream we won the Premier league next season and I was a camera man on the pitch in front of them lifting the trophy, that'll do me. This season we'll make history I really believe we're going to do it, bring any team on.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 08:12:59
Are you a man and do you have a camera Salah? Big questions these. but dreams do come true 😝.

4.) 07 Aug 2018 08:22:12
I don't know how I'll react if we win it. I will be so happy.

As long as we improve our position last year I'll be pleased, no satisfied. Can't believe we're believing again.

5.) 07 Aug 2018 08:23:03
I had a dream I was drowning in orange soda. Turned out to be a Fanta sea.

6.) 07 Aug 2018 10:36:32
Chelsea don't look in disarray to me.

They may be losing courtios but maybe not. Chelsea might put their foot down like we did with pipco. I think if they keep hazard, then they have a shout.

Jorginio. What a player! Who is their forward now? Did morata leave? Have they replaced him?

7.) 07 Aug 2018 10:39:56
I really hope you guys are right. I guess I've got too used to disappointment over the decades. I left Liverpool in 91 for Oz, we were champions at the time, and obviously haven't won it since (I blame myself) . I've brought my son up on lfc and swore to him that if we win the league we'll fly back to join in the celebrations.

8.) 07 Aug 2018 11:21:05
Morata still there but looking a bit lost still.

9.) 07 Aug 2018 11:47:33
Cheers sgred. Morata will have to do better. I don't see him as a lone striker. He would be much more successful with hazard playing just off him.

Gotta hurt that they signed big chin from arsenal when heading was supposed to be morata's game.

Sometimes it takes a while for a player to settle in, settle his family in and feel comfortable in new surroundings. Especially in the pl where a lot of defenders want to kill you. Morata could be better this year. That header last season, against someone decent. What a goal, one of the best headers I've ever seen.



09 Jul 2018 08:25:59
Probably just nonsense, runours that Neymar wants PSG to sign Coutinho.
Did we put a sell-on clause into the agreement when we sold him to Barca?


{Ed002's Note - (a) Neymar is looking to leave PSG. (b) Of course not.}

1.) 09 Jul 2018 08:41:20
That’ll be 140mil please and we’d like a 10% cut when you sell him for even more 😂.

2.) 09 Jul 2018 10:05:53
Ed02 do you think ..

that Everton's owners have factored in how to protect their proposed new stadium at Bramley Dock against the inevitable megatsunami that will be triggered by a massive landslip on the island of La Palma?

The pedestrianisation of Norwich Town centre will soothe inner city traffic?



30 Jun 2018 23:29:20
Is the Fekir move back on, or is it just a load of bollocks in the Daily Mirror?


1.) 30 Jun 2018 23:45:07
Rumours at the time when Liverpool negotiated with Lyon were that Lyon wanted to do the deal on July 1st or after. Its just the Mirror putting 2 + 2 together and coming up with 5 in my humble opinion.



01 Feb 2018 08:15:51
Amy news on the identity of the "mystery player" that Macca alluded to?


1.) 01 Feb 2018 08:23:44
Louis Saha.

2.) 01 Feb 2018 08:28:07
In my opinion it was Griezmann, but doing a deal for him in January was always going to be difficult.

3.) 01 Feb 2018 08:44:19
It was lemar.

4.) 01 Feb 2018 08:46:30
Griezmann was never going to join us. Barcelona want him as their marquee summer signing, Real want him to replace an ageing forward line and both Manc clubs have been interested in him for a while. No way LFC comes into the picture.

5.) 01 Feb 2018 08:47:24
I am less interested in who it was really, I just want to know what position in the team we are looking to fix with this top top player. If it was Griezmann I don't see the point as we have a great forward line already and Id much rather prefer someone like Varane or Rabiot. Eds/ Macca can you at least tell us what position he would play in the team?

6.) 01 Feb 2018 09:02:42
Did Macca not say it was a player who wasn't mentioned?

7.) 01 Feb 2018 09:56:56

8.) 01 Feb 2018 10:23:29
Yes Barry he did but when he posted it AG hadn’t been mentioned, later he reposted saying he was now all over the news ( when the odds came down in him joining us)

9.) 01 Feb 2018 10:28:10
It was Fekir.

10.) 01 Feb 2018 12:54:16
It was me.

Agree redsocks, there must only be a couple of people who really know what's going on. What the Ed's know may never be the full story and it's unfortunate for them and the likes of Macca when something doesn't come off and people start having a pop.
