Hi eds . any update on kieta injury . was really hoping he'd kick on this season. ?


{Ed001's Note - he is expected to return to training at the end of the week. Probably at least a couple of weeks away from playing again. Maybe more.}

1.) 17 Sep 2019 17:11:59
What do you think will happen with him does he have what it takes to turn it around.

{Ed001's Note - he has the ability there but he has to learn the language.}

2.) 18 Sep 2019 00:47:22
I think it comes down to more than just the language, communication and relationships on field can work with understanding and intuition regardless of language. Firmino still doesn't speak comfortable English but you can see him smile, point, wink, laugh, complain with his teammates which is a form of communication.

Keita needs to settle for sure as he's never looked part of this group confidently, but I'm being patient with him as I'm sure klopp is too.

Remember this time last year everyone was calling fabinho a spud and wrote him off even calling for him to move on in January. If keita has the persona to succeed in England klopp will use him when ready, if he doesn't then he will be excluded no doubt. Let's back him until we see that jurgen has given up faith in him.

3.) 18 Sep 2019 07:44:54
He needs to learn the language to get a work permit though so it is important.



15 Jul 2019 11:35:37
Eds 001 there's rumours of Liverpool trying to get coutinho on loan for x2 years with a potential deal at the end of it . you heard anything about this and you think it's got any legs to it? I know you wouldn't be up to having him back and surely the way he downed tools and faked injuries to go must of left a sour taste in klopp mouth. x6 times 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆.


{Ed001's Note - not heard anything of that, nor do I think it is likely. Barca are desperate to offload him.}

1.) 15 Jul 2019 13:14:46
Why so desperate Ed’s? I get he hasn’t performed and cost a lot, but seems bad to write him off after 1 year. Is his attitudes wrong?

{Ed001's Note - no, he just isn't good enough and they need money to buy players that are.}

2.) 15 Jul 2019 14:15:48
To be fair to him I think he did well when I watched them last season. Scored some decent goals too. Perhaps if he threw himself to ground and rolled around for fun the fans might appreciate him more.

{Ed001's Note - sorry but that is not why they don't rate him. It is because he is half the player Iniesta was and did not do well most of the time.}

3.) 15 Jul 2019 16:05:16
Half an iniesta is still pretty impressive!

4.) 15 Jul 2019 17:35:58
Lol would take the legs and the brain. That's about half, right? But seriously, what's with everyone doubting Coutinhos talent? He's never been all that sound defensively and should never have been recognized as Iniestas replacement if that is indeed their expectation, but he has wands for feet and links play well. Sounds impossible from a financial perspective and I'm not sure Coutinho would be able to face the fans of Liverpool either, but the talent he showed here didn't just evaporate because he put a different jersey on.

{Ed001's Note - wands? He simply doesn't that is the problem and he does not link play well either, which is why Barca want rid.}

5.) 15 Jul 2019 18:29:34
I usually agree with most player opinions you have ed but I have to disagree with you on this one. I think coutinho players excellent for us and scored some crucial goals and his link up with firminho was brilliant. Mind you I wouldn't really want him back after the faking injuries to leave the club but I do rate him highly as a footballer . I cannot comment on his Barcelona performances as I did not watch them enough.

{Ed001's Note - he only linked with Firmino - everyone was whining about that before the injury started and that he was capable of hard work but most of the time wouldn't bother tracking back. Oh and that he would shoot 80 times a game from ridiculous angles to score once every few games. Suddenly when he goes everyone forgets all his bad points, which far outweighed the good.}

6.) 15 Jul 2019 19:19:14
All I remember of Coutinho in his final sesason was his sulking and constantly shooting from stupid angles when Mane, Firminho etc were in far better positions, it was glory hunting and selfish. That is exactly what I posted here at the time along with many others.
He also gave up working for the team. Putting all that aside, I do not think he is suited to the way Liverpool play now and that there are more dynamic, mobile players that fit the style we play.

7.) 15 Jul 2019 19:53:56
Wands for feet 🤣🤣🤣🤣 count on 1 hand the amount of times he performed magic for us. He was an is rubbish. He wouldn’t even get in the spurs team as eriksons replacement.

8.) 16 Jul 2019 20:44:30
Ed01, the people who want Cou back by only remembering (conveniently) his few strong points, is like how people talk about high school years saying how great they were whilst at the same time, forgetting that High School was terrible for the most part. Just my opinion.

9.) 16 Jul 2019 20:57:19
Disagree. coutinho is class, but not for us. does not work hard enough.
It's like appreciating harry kane, but appreciating he is probably the wrong striker for us.



01 Jun 2019 06:20:07
Ed002 you've mentioned that we've looked at Bruno Fernandez a couple of times. In you're opinion would he improve our first 11 just asking as I've not seen much of him to be honest and his odds on joining us have been slashed from 6/ 1 to 2/ 1 . thanks in advance for you're reply 👍 ps where you watching game tonight? I'm with Mrs and x2 kids at the m&s arena.


{Ed002's Note - I cannot explain the odds but it should be MU, just perhaps MC.}

1.) 02 Jun 2019 13:17:04
I've seen comments he made saying he prefers Liverpool's style of midfield over man city's and how he admires our football. I can't remember what source I saw it this morning, anyone else read them? I know his asking price is very high though and unlikely we'd pursue that sort of deal.

2.) 03 Jun 2019 00:06:31
Isn't he close to joining united might be wrong but seen it a few times the past few days.

{Ed0333's Note - I want us to sign Aour from Lyon. I think the kid would be a stellar signing and not upset the applecart. My dream would be Pepe but the cynic in me says that will never happen.

3.) 05 Jun 2019 19:49:34
Aour and Pepe both look class in ligue 1

Test would be if they can transition to the premier league.

Laca and giroud as forwards have had some level of success here after shining in Ligue 1 but haven’t been amazing.

Midfielders are more tricky but Auor looks very classy. Probably out of price range though.

4.) 03 Jun 2019 10:29:22
I would be very surprised if Lyon let him go, of all their prized assets he is the one they don’t want to leave!

{Ed0333's Note - I agree mate. They would rather let Fekir go than Aour that says something about his potential.



05 May 2019 17:57:32
Any news about salah and bobby eds?


{Ed025's Note - mo is being assessed and is 50/50 for the barca game masson, bobby unfortunately will not make it mate..

1.) 05 May 2019 18:49:37
I just hope whatever happens we are making the correct medical decision for Salah.

As much as I want him to play, he shouldn’t play if he isn’t fully cleared by all the appropriate doctors!

2.) 05 May 2019 18:41:07
Ok cheers bud. fingers crossed for salah. don’t fancy us at all to get past Barcelona but if any team could do t in a game under the lights at anfield you never know. would definitely start Shaqiri and salah if fit with mane through the middle.

3.) 05 May 2019 18:42:40
Did Bobby playing that ten minutes v Barcelona make it worse Ed or has he picked up another injury?

{Ed025's Note - i really dont know sorry mate..

4.) 05 May 2019 20:41:36
I would say it didn’t help, I put up a post questioning the decision to bring bobby on against Barcelona and got a handful of things down.

5.) 06 May 2019 18:32:25
Apparently he’s out Salah along with Firmino too, big blow.



01 Jun 2018 21:48:54
Looks like Bayern getting Fekir 😤😤😤😤😤😤😤would of been great for us.


1.) 01 Jun 2018 21:57:59
The cheeky Fekirs!

2.) 01 Jun 2018 21:59:41
Are they?

3.) 01 Jun 2018 22:00:12
Btw, if they are it’s cos we’ve got Pulisic 😉.

4.) 01 Jun 2018 22:40:18
That's what I like to hear Zed ;) . We can dream mate lol.

5.) 01 Jun 2018 22:54:56
they would have to smash their transfer record which I don't believe they will.

6.) 01 Jun 2018 23:21:26
We actually signed Fekir on Wednesday and contacted Bayern to say they could have Fekir for Boateng. Klopp realised that Boateng was needed as cover for Klavan. Hope that clears a few things up.

7.) 02 Jun 2018 00:42:15
Chill out we will sign him on Monday. 😤.

8.) 02 Jun 2018 06:46:28
Hopefully it’s just a ploy to make us up our bid.

9.) 02 Jun 2018 22:11:49
When I replied to this post I said 'are they'. meaning are they getting him. I got 5 thumbs down. why. reports now saying deal to us will completed soon.

10.) 03 Jun 2018 09:42:52
Atlfc70 i think that's people saying no he hasn't not disliking your post buddy.

any news on salah eds . i know he's got a protective boot on and is out of egypt games.? new he had a knock on it sunday but thought he ran it off. obviously he's still got a problem with his ankle . i don't care what anyone says he is not someone we can do without. x2 people to mark him in almost every game. 🙏.


{Ed001's Note - last I heard he was waiting to be assessed.}

1.) 12 Nov 2019 23:15:01
He is rested and won't play. Seems good for us. Robbo too. Nice one!

2.) 13 Nov 2019 07:38:26
His foot is in a protective boot so it doesn’t look great.

3.) 13 Nov 2019 12:14:05
Ffs he played out the game after he was injured his ankle Ed, surely if it was serious Klopp should of subbed him with Origi?

Hope he is ok and not facing a lengthy spell out?



04 Nov 2019 14:03:47
ed's oo1 what team would you go for to play city? just curious that's all. would you bring gomez in for lovren and who would you go for in midfield?


{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't change the defence, they need to settle in again. Lovren has the spot and it is up to Gomez to earn it back by performing when he gets the chance. He didn't do that in the cup so he shouldn't come back in. Midfield has to be Fabs, the two in front will be Gini and Hendo, though Hendo is a bit off form he usually steps up when it matters. Then the front 3 pick themselves.}

1.) 04 Nov 2019 15:08:22
I thought Heno was our best midfielder v Villa and this season probably been better than Gini. It's 2 of the front 3 who are off form IMO.

Gomo did struggle v MK Dons but agains't Arsenal he was defending on his own. The keeper, defence and midfield v Arsenal offered him very little help. We have some top kids going forward but watching the u23's we are a mile of defensively. I think Gomo will play tomorrow and start to show his worth again, Kloppo says he has not been fully fit.

2.) 04 Nov 2019 16:46:32
I did feel for Gomez in the Arsenal game - not to be overly critical given their ages and such, but he was next to a couple teens on their debut so was always going to be a difficult on for him.

I'd back him to come back eventually, I think people forget how long he was out for after that broken leg and that he really hasn't played all that, uch since his leg break.

3.) 04 Nov 2019 19:10:12
I think that i would play Ox hendo and gini in midfield against Genk. It would be complete folly to play Fab on the off chance that he gets injured, after leaving him out against Villa.

4.) 04 Nov 2019 19:20:34
Spot on, Ed. IMO, I have this feeling that certain people just want Gomez to come in and are kind of willing Klopp to do it whereas based on what we are all seeing, the kid tho supremely talented, has not done enuff to warrant starting ahead of Lovren. I mean, this is football at the highest level where you either earn your keep, convince the manager or you don't play, is it not? Lovs may have a mistake in him BUT so do our other CB's cos Matip does, VVD has been poor in the last couple of games and Gomez is also error-prone hence one of the reasons he is not playing right now.

For now, Matip is out and Lovs has the shirt now, just like Gomez took the shirt last season when Lovs was still on holiday after the World Cup and Matip was recovering from the injury that kept him out for the end of the 17/ 18 season. That's football. If Gomez wants his shirt back, he needs to earn it.

5.) 04 Nov 2019 20:32:45
Is matip still injured? Anyone know how long he is out for?

6.) 04 Nov 2019 21:55:28
Matip out for about 6 weeks.

I have not read anyone on here saying Gomez should be ahead of Matip or Lovren atm. Why mention Matip's mistakes Redwolf? Your opinion on him is well known and he has proved you 100% wrong in the last 12 months. You can count on a couple of fingers Matip's mistakes that have lead to goals in 12 months. Matip has been our best cb this season shame he is injured.

7.) 04 Nov 2019 22:40:03
Unsurprising that Lovren played against Villa, given Wesley’s physical threat.
City will pose a different challenge however and one that may be better suited for Gomez. If fit, I’d be sorely tempted to play him.

8.) 04 Nov 2019 23:16:14
I agree red wolf that Matip and VVD will make mistakes. Everyone does. The problem with Lovren is his mistakes are so poor that we normally concede from them. He’s got no pace so the high line doesn’t work as he has to go with runners rather than chase back and he just gets bullied way too often.
An off form Gomez is better than an on form Lovren for me so I’d go with Gomez and play him into form. With Trent on one side a VVD on the other he’ll soon pick up the pace again.

9.) 04 Nov 2019 20:46:57
I agree with you ed001 about Hendo I think he is a great captain his more old school than most players but his form is off at the minute, but I think if we drop him for the City game he will come back with the bit between his teeth. Even if he comes on for the second half so I would start with Fabs Gini and Milner. As for the back I would go for Gomez over Lovren every time just think he needs a few games under his belt to get back to last seasons form.



07 Oct 2019 22:24:51
It's not motd fever because if you look back I've said it in my posts before. I think that Raul Jimenez would be a very decent player in our squad to rotate with our front 3. the guy is quality and frightensthe rubbish out of defenders and his work rate is right up klopp street. ala firmino. just a thought maybe worth a cheeky bid in the future 🤔🤔👍.


1.) 07 Oct 2019 23:29:25
I really like him as well.

2.) 08 Oct 2019 02:06:57
He’s an excellent player.
No chance he comes as a back-up though, not at his age and current performance level. He’d be a starter at about 16 out 20 clubs.

3.) 08 Oct 2019 07:54:47
He’s a excellent player. Unfortunately he’s not going to sit on our bench and it would take more than a cheeky bid.

4.) 08 Oct 2019 11:01:05
If he has ambitions of challenging for titles and playing CL football then he might just come. Who knows he might even have confidence to back himself not to be a sub at the club if the transfer were to happen, plus i would imagine he would get a pay increase as part of the deal. Its all hypothetical talk anyway. But i like others on here really rate him and believe he would be a great addition to the club.

5.) 08 Oct 2019 16:27:11
Him or Son from Spurs? Hmmmm can't decide.

6.) 08 Oct 2019 16:43:55
I’d take Son. just. but both would be an outstanding option to share the workload with our front three. Origi has done a brilliant job too though to be fair, but just a notch below those two still. He’s best as an impact sub.

7.) 08 Oct 2019 18:10:35
Great player but he cost Wolves over £30 million. He's only 28, vital to the way they play and they're an ambitious club who don't want/ need to sell. He'd easily be priced out of a move.

The days of cheeky bids working are gone unless a club is relegated or in financial turmoil.



26 Jun 2019 15:40:43
Ed002 any new info on timo Werner as with all betting sites he's been removed from the transfer listing. has he decided to stay put or has someone snapped him up? Ps hope you enjoying the sun. ???? and keeping hydrated ????.


{Ed002's Note - There is nothing new with TW - Bayern won't pay the asking price. RBL will look for a new deal and the player may decide to sit out his contract. I might go to the pub for an hour in a minute or two and hydrate a little. Enjoy your day.}

1.) 26 Jun 2019 16:00:37
up north it's a sweltering 13 degrees.

2.) 26 Jun 2019 17:53:42
Where is the boundary for up north? Last time I checked people were calling Birmingham up north.

3.) 26 Jun 2019 18:06:29
Sheffield is the most southerly northern point - as a resident of the nabouring Midlands dwelling Chesterfield.

4.) 26 Jun 2019 18:39:05

Ed002 dont forget to get yourself a Doom Bar and visit the Gardens of Helegan. Paradise IMO.

{Ed002's Note - I have a home here in Cornwall.}



07 Jun 2019 13:27:13
Watched the both semi finals for nations trophy and I thought Shaqiri played really well for Switzerland if I'm honest anything they did well went through him👍 . and then watched English game last night and have to say Memphis Depay looked absolutely shocking and I hope we're seriously not interested in him because no way on earth is he an upgrade on Shaqiri.


1.) 07 Jun 2019 14:03:03
So you are basing your judgement on Shaq and Depay on one international semi-competitive game.

2.) 07 Jun 2019 15:23:43
I think he's basing his judgement on watching the players play!

3.) 07 Jun 2019 17:15:03
🤣 just giving my opinion cobra lad. he wasn’t much better when he was with United either was he.? Sorry bud just saying Shaqiri looked decent and Memphis looks shocking 👍.

4.) 07 Jun 2019 20:28:06
Shaq ALWAYS plays well for the Swiss. He is in charge down there and the system they play fits him like a glove. I remember watching him play vs Belgium earlier in the year in the Nations' League and he was simply unplayable. Was that down to him being "on one" on the day or down to the Belgium team giving him the time and space the size of Anfield to operate, I don't know. I do know he was brilliant.

Same for Depay. Saw him play for Holland vs France and Germany as well and he was also brilliant esp. vs Germany where he terrorized Hummels (not that big of a deal as he has become dreadful) all game long. Therefore, int'l games are not the best way to judge players cos of the nature of these games.

5.) 07 Jun 2019 20:49:03
Memphis is shocking mate your 100% right. Hope we go nowhere near him.

6.) 08 Jun 2019 12:15:06
Players have poor games. Sometimes the ball just won't run right for them. You could watch one or two games from salah's wonder season and say "he looks poor"

Imo shaq is the better player. He is a luxury player.

Who is the player more willing to track back. I didn't really notice shaq slacking for us. Im glad he is in our squad. And Depay IS a good player whom id be happy to have in the squad. I have a feeling Adam Lallana is going to have a decent season, free from injury, looked good in the few times we saw him.

If he found his form of 2016/ 17 he could be the AM that we need. Its not outside the realms possibility.

7.) 10 Jun 2019 05:27:03
Shaqs free role for the Swiss suits him perfectly. Our 433 system doesn't suit his strengths currently. But shaq has performed well more often than not when we've used him, he had a quiet spell of 4 or 5 matches before we switched to 433 and people quickly forgot he played well for us in the 4231 for a couple of months prior. November and December he rarely had a bad game. Origi never featured then cos that formation wasn't suited to him. I like shaqiri personally and he seems to have a love for the club, celebrating and showing emotion even when going months on the bench.

My matet has just text me saying mahrez aswell. and looked at betting odds and we’ve gone from 10/ 1 to 2/ 1 faves . he’s a right winger tho so I don’t see it happening unless he plays midfield aswell. I’m stumped 🤔. I think we’re just linked with every tom dick and harry and is all just speculation. Would any of you be happy with mahrez?

Yes true we could do with cover. but just not to sure we need like a marquee signing we seem to crave every season.
