A search didn't bring anything recent up - is there anything in the rumours linking us with Lloyd Kelly from Bournemouth?


{Ed002's Note - Lloyd Kelly (CB) Free Agent next summer interesting Spurs, Milan Borussia Dortmund and West Ham. Wildcard may be Fulham, Newcastle or even Liverpool who have a lengthy list of CBs being considered.}

1.) 13 Nov 2023 11:54:32
Cheers Ed002. Can't say I've seen him play really but assume he's half decent based on the list of interested teams ?.

2.) 13 Nov 2023 12:48:17
Might be wrong but I'm pretty sure Liverpool had a lot interest a long time ago when he moved to Bournemouth, would be a very good option to replace Matip with potentially saying that I feel Quansah has shown more then enough to be 3rd/ 4th choice.

{Ed002's Note - There was interest before.}

3.) 13 Nov 2023 12:30:20
How do I search for that CB list ED? Any names to search for?

{Ed002's Note - I don't want to get involved in providing any lists at this time.}

4.) 14 Nov 2023 11:11:18
He would be a great signing.

5.) 14 Nov 2023 18:18:20
Nah, Lfcfan_03beef. We can definitely do better than Kelly, bro.

6.) 15 Nov 2023 10:19:58
If its for free in the summer its a good signing for me too. especially if the club still thinks Chambers needs a loan.

7.) 17 Nov 2023 00:30:50
Only thinking squad option, tidy player with plenty of potential and youd think quite cheap, Ed2 has told us a few times that Tsimikas won't last forever as our backup so would be a fine addition in my opinion. If you haven’t watched so much of him take a little look. Since I made that post I also have seen a few rumours about Ait-nouri (sp sorry if wrong) who I do also like. Neither would spell the end for Chambers I don’t think.



21 Jul 2023 13:16:32
I know we've seen this dismissed before but reading earlier that City and Leipzig are some way apart over Gvardiol - any chance of us stepping in now that we have extra funds available from the Hendo/ Fab sales?


{Ed002's Note - Of course not.}

1.) 21 Jul 2023 16:32:45
They not selling this year and us signing him next???just kidding.



13 Apr 2022 07:23:26
Eds, seen us linked with Gelson Bremer of Torino in the press a few times recently - anything in this? Wasn't sure we need another CB at the moment unless someone is moving on perhaps.


{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}

1.) 13 Apr 2022 11:26:00
I can see Gomez leaving for Villa so that he gets to play. I also see a need for an elite CB who can challenge the rest. Gomez is not that suited to our system, and is unlucky w injuries. I like the look of Bremer, but it appears he has chosen Inter.
Wonder why we bid for Demiral and then didn't go for him once he became available.

2.) 13 Apr 2022 12:29:18
Would have thought Gomez was perfect for our system.

3.) 13 Apr 2022 12:58:48
How is Gomez not suited to our system he's perfect for it. rapid and decent on the ball.

4.) 13 Apr 2022 14:10:43
I think that Ed1 said once that it’s cos he’s not good in the air which is needed for the high line.

5.) 13 Apr 2022 14:25:09
What about either of the centre half’s from Burnley. Ben mee and Tarkowski spelling 🤣. remember when they were highly thought of 👍👍.

6.) 13 Apr 2022 16:33:06
Can imagine dem 2 defending near d halfway line alrite! Gomez on the other hand is nearly as quick as Virg.

7.) 13 Apr 2022 17:35:33
Gomez isn't suited to our system?
Baffled by that to be honest.

8.) 13 Apr 2022 18:38:07
Gomez should be playing next to VVD. Klopp has that wrong imo. Gomez would cover the area Trent leaves much better than Matip. And of course Matip is the deflection own goal king. Matip has been good but not as good as Gomez was in the title winning season and of course Gomez could be playing in our side for the next 10 years.

9.) 13 Apr 2022 19:43:03
I've got the faintest suspicion that this Klopp fella know what he's doing.

10.) 14 Apr 2022 01:56:10
Spot on Flash. Best manager in the world, yet all the experts here know better than him, lol.

11.) 14 Apr 2022 09:49:03
Gomez isn't good enough he's a ball watcher. the only thing that bails him out is his pace. Virgil doesn't need pace he's always in the right position. thast thetype of cb we need, not a recovering CB.

12.) 14 Apr 2022 11:25:58
I thought Matip was the ball watcher who is constantly caught out with balls over the top. I don't get where this dislike for Gomez comes from - before his injury him and VVD were the main CB partnership and he didn't put a foot wrong. Personally, I still think Gomez is a better CB than Matip and Konate.

13.) 14 Apr 2022 15:41:52
Totally agree, he needs games, is England best CB when MATCH fit and can assist like Trent too and at one point was the fastest in the team. One hell of a player.

14.) 14 Apr 2022 17:51:37
Centre backs generally need pace in our system due to the high line they defend with (Matip possibly being a slight exception) . And I see Van Dijk using his pace on a regular basis, if he didn't we'd be conceding a damned sight more than we are now.

15.) 14 Apr 2022 19:58:05
Hi ed. do we have any attention on Lovro Majer? Appreciate for your thoughts. thank you.

{Ed002's Note - No, this is just another random player.}

16.) 14 Apr 2022 20:02:50
If Gomez played for another top European side and was available, everyone on here would be screaming for his signature. Top player in my opinion.

17.) 15 Apr 2022 10:11:51
I agree with Stuie, Gomez is our 2nd best CB and perfectly suited to our system, letting him go would be a huge mistake.

18.) 15 Apr 2022 19:15:06
Games stays IMO. Really quick and covers two positions well. The highline typically needs someone stronger in the air on paper, which matip offers, but JG isn't exactly bad either. I'd prefer recovery pace, especially going up against teams that try to pass through the back line.

19.) 16 Apr 2022 11:34:22
Gomez is a top player and his pace means he can play the high line we want very well. Honestly hope he stays as I see him and Konate as our cb partnership for years to come.

20.) 18 Apr 2022 00:02:13
I honestly think Gomez doesn’t get played purely because of his height. Being a top team means that teams target set pieces as their most realistic chance of scoring and Matip and Konate are better at defending them with their height and aerial ability.
Gomez did us proud in the title winning season he was outstanding and if he does leave I’m sure he will be again. Good luck to him.

21.) 20 Apr 2022 09:24:58
Do not think Gomez is aggressive enough in the air for us. With liverpool's high line and pressing up front, teams will lump it up, so you need the CB's and DM to be dominant in the air and while Gomez might not be weak in that area, he's behind others.



25 Mar 2022 14:38:50
Just reading that Leeds are looking to buy Ryan Kent from Rangers, fee mentioned is £20m. Any of the Eds know whether there is a sell-on clause from when we sold him to Rangers? Could be a nice boost (or pay Salah's new wage for a couple of weeks) .


{Ed002's Note - Kent's TMS listing has a sell on clause identified on a sliding scale. It seems unlikely anyone would pay £20M for him. It is hard to see Leeds having a need for him.}

1.) 25 Mar 2022 18:08:43
Jaysus are be scraping the barrel we need to be looking for a sell on clause he’s not worth 5m.

2.) 25 Mar 2022 22:20:23
@Jay, some call it scrapping the barrel, some call it sound business sense.

3.) 26 Mar 2022 02:48:43
Jay won’t even pay for Sky Sports yet Liverpool are the ones scraping the barrel 😭.

4.) 26 Mar 2022 04:18:42
I wouldn't pay for Sky Sports either. Scumbag channel.

5.) 26 Mar 2022 04:21:00
If scraping the barrel means getting 1m more . I am for scrapping my life.

6.) 26 Mar 2022 12:23:03
Jay why is he not worth that Leeds payed £15m for Dan James and he is worse than awful.

7.) 26 Mar 2022 15:21:02
James is doing his best in the epl! Scottish league is below championship level in my opinion.

8.) 26 Mar 2022 18:22:00
VVD must be crap aswell then having played for Celtic, tierney aswell?

9.) 26 Mar 2022 19:50:03
Jay Kent did not look to bad against Dortmund don’t think I have seen James play good once for Leeds or Utd loads of pace and that’s it.

10.) 27 Mar 2022 03:31:28
I don’t watch a lot of Scottish football but I have never thought Kent has stood out for Rangers, I would be amazed if someone would pay £20m for him.

11.) 27 Mar 2022 04:17:39
Kent’s value isn’t really the point.

It is more a case of our revenue streams have been seriously disrupted over the past couple of years and a person who isn’t shy at saying that the club has no money and that the owners won’t spend is saying the club shouldn’t be ars#d trying to make money out of a sell on clause. Just seems strange to me.



08 Jan 2022 12:04:14
Spurs looking to bid for Traore according to the press today chaps. That should put that one to bed unless Klopp wants to push the boat out for his alleged obsession 😂.


1.) 08 Jan 2022 12:24:53
If klopps and conte's reportes interest is true its mad how little both know about football. I honestly think some fans living at home in there Mothers attic could do a better job than these overpaid overhyped ciaches sometimes.

2.) 08 Jan 2022 12:32:47
They can have him.
My main concern is Villa want Bissouma now. We’re going to miss some very big targets if the club don’t start selling and spending. He’s one player I think we are in need of. Midfield looks tired and is ageing or not working or both.

3.) 08 Jan 2022 14:10:52
Brighton to Villa would be a step up but not to the extent of moving to Liverpool and playing under Klopp would be. I’m sure (might be wrong) but Bissouma’s preference would surely be Liverpool and Klopp.

But the problem is Brightons preference would probably be 50 mill in cash from Villa over milk tokens paid over 60 months by Liverpool.

4.) 08 Jan 2022 14:29:22
I would no point for a player to move from Brighton to Villa except for more money. A step up, but not enough to warrant the move unless its for money imo.

5.) 08 Jan 2022 15:26:39
And yet we saw a 31yr old leave Madrid and the champs Lge yesterday for a relegation fight on sunny Týneside.

6.) 08 Jan 2022 15:32:39
Liverpool might be a bigger step up but we haven’t bud so it’s a mute point, Villa will be a good team given time and it’s a step up from Brighton.

7.) 08 Jan 2022 16:57:04
Tripper wanted to leave and come back to England. I fail to see the comparison.

8.) 08 Jan 2022 17:16:17
Ok, he would have swapped Madrid and champs lge under Simeone for that Newcastle side before the saudi's arrived witheir chequebook. At his age its not even as if he's going to see trophies there. He'll probably be relegated in May. Mattress b fulla nice cash though.

9.) 08 Jan 2022 17:23:27
Jason Havertz, sure, you know better than Klopp. Dream on, and keep playing FIFA.

10.) 08 Jan 2022 17:36:58
I knew there'd be one😆.

11.) 08 Jan 2022 18:19:29
Aye but you had to wait 5 hours Jadon. All the same, there's always one.

12.) 08 Jan 2022 19:07:36
Maybe there was no suitors for tripper until Newcastle owners ce in. I mean ots a pretty good fit. They need to upgrade and he is experienced.

13.) 08 Jan 2022 19:33:45
Bored Irish, the highlight of my day😆.

14.) 08 Jan 2022 21:29:28
Klopp as also hinted he won't sign unvaccinated players.

15.) 09 Jan 2022 03:21:43
I may be wrong here but wasn’t it said (by Ed02 maybe - but I stand to be corrected) that Bissouma preferred Arsenal as a destination when a few of us were getting into a tizzy in the summer transfer window?

16.) 09 Jan 2022 10:54:21
Maybe Aresnal won't prefer him tho WDW?

Anyone got any thoughts on why we seem to be conceding first in so many games. Not having an issue with the ultimate results just find it odd that we're not starting games as positively as we're ending them and nervous that it might catch up on us eventually!


1.) 28 Sep 2023 06:55:25
No idea! The goals we’ve conceded have kinda been different too and the opposition have to be good enough to take the chance.

I can remember many games when we’ve scored first but that was after the opposition missed a chance themselves.

2.) 28 Sep 2023 06:57:30
Better teams won’t be so kind.

3.) 28 Sep 2023 07:17:21
Hopefully it's just a small run of bad luck rather than us not being 100% focused/ ready at the start of games!

4.) 28 Sep 2023 08:19:44
I've been saying it for weeks: we're not bothering to defend this season.
The focus is on scoring three every game ?.

5.) 28 Sep 2023 08:25:48
Look at the goals themselves in addition to the period we are conceding them. Without exception, when we concede first in games they are goals born from defensive errors which, with the quality of players we have, is down to a lack of concentration and nothing more. Bournemouth, Newcastle, Wolves, Leicester - all early goals and all poor defensive errors.

6.) 28 Sep 2023 09:04:49
If Tsimikas didn’t go down holding his ankle I very much doubt Leicester would have scored!

7.) 28 Sep 2023 09:19:52
Not all goals are because of poor defending.

However, if you accept that they are then the argument that our defence is poor is self defeating, as we are on a 17 game unbeaten run in the PL and this season we have 7 wins and 1 draw from our 8 games.

As our defence keeps conceding less than the opposition then, logically, we have the best defence in the league at the current time.

8.) 28 Sep 2023 09:53:31
Indeed, WDW3. And sorry, people need to miss me with the old, tired "other teams will not be so kind" and all that mess. It's football. Other teams will get chances against us and score due to the way we play. Move on.

Now in the games vs Chelsea, Bournmouth and Newcastle, those goals were down to individual errors/ not pushing up on the offside trap as a defensive block vs Chelsea, all of which can happen.

Vs Wolves again, individual defensive mistakes (not tracking your man, and Gomez and Matip standing around for Neto to walk past them) . Vs WH and LASK, I put it down to great play by the opposition while vs LC, it was a well worked counter attack. Like I said above, the other guys on the other team are pros. who get paid big wages to sort us out and find gaps, create chances and score goals. It is what it is. And Good luck keeping clean sheets in every game you play. I wouldn't hold my breathe tho.

9.) 28 Sep 2023 10:14:46
West Derby Wanderer - Point me to any, ANY, of the early goals we’ve conceded this season and tell me they were as a result of quality play by the opposition. You know full well that isn’t true.
Your whole comment makes no sense, surprising given what you normally post. And no one said our defence is poor, in fact most people agree it is stacked with world class players, hence the bafflement at why we’re conceding poor goals early in games.

10.) 28 Sep 2023 10:36:06
A lot of individuals errors.

11.) 28 Sep 2023 10:46:59
It’s to keep the betting syndicates happy, get a tenner on Liverpool winning 3-1 every game after conceding first. Lol.

12.) 28 Sep 2023 13:33:44
@IR yes, a lot of individual errors cos it is the start of the season and we have not even gotten a settled midfield nor back line yet due to injuries, new tactics, rotation, new players needing to bed in and suspensions.

Clearly, no team in history has had to deal with all of that at the start of a season until LFC pitched up. Like I said, it's football. It happens. No need to overthink it.

13.) 28 Sep 2023 14:20:32
By "better teams" you mean?

Let's look at the Stats:

5 Unwanted concessions in first 6 league games

However second lowest in Prem. Only City less with 3 and then Arsenal and Chelsea come joint 3rd with 6 in 6

Of the other teams top 8 Brighton 8, Newcastle and Spurs 7, Villa and West Ham 10

Needless to say Chelsea is the only team out of top 10 to then get close though they can't score hence where they are

Then other comps. The only team bettering us in goals conceded in the league also conceded first to average competition in the CL (we did in Europa) they conceded and are out of the other competition to have started.

Now to the games played:

I would argue (though not getting much counter argument and more agreement from those I speak to) that we have had as tough a start as any. Us and Newcastle have arguably had the hardest start in terms of teams played and that is set to continue for us for the next 2 with high flying Spurs and Brighton both away.

Last night a breakaway goal scored early and, in honesty, pure domination thereafter. I don't know about anyone else but at the moment when we have any form of setback (concession, red card) I am continually believing we will turn it around - that's a good feeling!

So all in all when you break it down, I don't think you can really confidently use the words "better teams" right now - certainly not in the context used?!

14.) 28 Sep 2023 13:36:02
Us and everyone else by the look of the stats then @Rigsby?

Except the scoring 3 that is esp. in Chelsea’s case.

15.) 28 Sep 2023 13:42:56
We’ve still conceded the second least goals to Man City, only 25 clean sheets across 20 teams (representing 120 opportunities for clean sheets across the 6 games) .

Conceding early is much better than conceding late unless you have a pretty decent cushion already.

Not conceding at all is of course best and but this is clearly not a league where clean sheets are an abundant norm and if you are an entertaining attacking team you do open up more but as long as you have the credentials to outscore why would your fans have issue?!

16.) 29 Sep 2023 05:43:21
^ what he said ?.



26 Mar 2023 16:22:31
Just noted that England are playing out first choice midfield for the 23/ 24 season. what a coincidence ??.


1.) 26 Mar 2023 17:16:55
Was a joke BTW, we all know Hendo won't be in it as Rabiot will be there instead.

2.) 26 Mar 2023 18:42:13
Thought it'd be trent.

3.) 26 Mar 2023 20:27:29
Did England start Henderson, Elliott amd Fabhino? As that's our starting midfield next season.

4.) 27 Mar 2023 00:57:02
See what you did there @Kim - you think we won’t be signing any mids don’t you?



28 Feb 2023 13:30:43
Oh no, annual results released, prepare for daft questions Eds!

Important bit - look at the profit number folks (clue, it's very low) rather than reading the revenue headlines!


1.) 28 Feb 2023 15:11:03
That is why we urgently require middle east oil monies to spend. But inexplicably that will be spent at the other end of the east lancs road, including plans for a 100,000 capacity stadium on the existing old toilet, they want it to be bigger than Wembley which is the national stadium, there number one transfer target besides Bellingham this summer will be the centre forward who destroyed us in Naples early last year, if people think nunez and haaland are colossal then he is another monster! and posters know on here who they want to replace slab head with Gvardiol!

The resurgence of man utd will have a bigger impact on man city than us as city only have a home average attendance of circa 50 thou, that means when man utd have there new stadium built from our arab oil money, they will have twice the home revenue that city can generate or anyone the World included, they are only going to get bigger and more successful over the years and will sadly race past our current record trophy haul!

FSG have certainly got a lot to answer not only currently, but in the many, many decades to follow, as man utd shove everyone's faces into the dirt including Guardiola.

"Thank You" FSG for providing us fans a rosy and prosperous future!

2.) 28 Feb 2023 15:25:27
They will be well into negative territory next year!

FSG will be then "RED" forever!

3.) 28 Feb 2023 15:38:22
Why is it inexplicable if this were to happen at United? They are a bigger club than us anyway.
It might mean Weghorst and Eriksen become available though.

4.) 28 Feb 2023 15:52:40
Lol, Rigsby.

5.) 28 Feb 2023 15:57:27
You guys do realise that figure you are going on about is profit before tax AKA the higher they declare that number to be, the more tax they have to pay. They use accounting methods to get that figure as low as possible. There is absolutely nothing to worry about.

6.) 28 Feb 2023 16:25:39
If any of what 007’s post says happens it may well be the death of football in England. Both Manchester clubs seem to be dragging the sport through the mud constantly whilst both sets of manc fans continue to have very little knowledge football. I wouldn’t mind leaving England for another league and leave the London and Manchester clubs to their own rot.

7.) 28 Feb 2023 16:34:28
United are on their way back and it's somehow down to FSG?
Liquid lunches clearly don't agree with some.

8.) 28 Feb 2023 16:53:40
Well done 007, you've destroyed my day. But as extraordinary as your imagination is, it's not a sinnario that is out of the question. It's going to be a big summer for the club, the owners and the manager.

9.) 28 Feb 2023 16:54:28
Did you even believe that when you wrote it Babbity? Because obviously there would have been no external independent audit done on those numbers will there. Talk about naive.

{Ed002's Note - It is absolute nonsense.}

10.) 28 Feb 2023 17:17:11
Flash, There is a reason why Ed02 said on here years ago that we don't discuss money topics on this forum. This is what conversations can lead to. I personally could not be arsed about such nonsense BUT it is funny how a lot of LFC's fans have turned into armchair accountants and money managers since FSG showed up.

11.) 28 Feb 2023 17:45:00
As long as it doesn’t effect ticket prices or merchandise then it is what it is for me.

Because as more money seems to come into football the cost of being a fan seems to be at the bottom of every club and players agenda.

12.) 28 Feb 2023 17:47:26
Ed002 and johnny it is not nonsense at all. All companies use accounting methods on their financial statements in order to get the best result for them. There is no one way to account your financial results. In the case of Liverpool, they are not a plc and not paying dividends, therefore they are not trying to impress shareholders with high returns. Trying to get as high a profit figure as possible is pointless as you only lose more of it in tax. You can choose to disclose certain costs in particular years for example. What you can't do is change the way you value your assets every single year and you can't mix and match different accounting methods to different assets. You have to apply the same accounting methods universally. Auditors know this. What they are looking for is discrepancies in accounting methods used, false information being input, the withholding of information, whether the data matches the time period, etc.

But what do I know about accounting? I only studied it for five years at university and do it full-time as a career. I suppose I have to yet again bow to the keyboard oracle of all knowledge yet again.

13.) 28 Feb 2023 17:56:29
It’s nearly like posters turning into armchairs managers Oli. Do you ever make any comment on that ?.
Personally if someone wants to talk about money, that’s up to them. If they’re talking nonsense I’m sure Ed002 will put him right if he’s bothered.

As for Flash, well I’m waiting for the day he actually posts something constructive, instead of snide remarks. ?.

14.) 28 Feb 2023 18:11:24
Babbity, I'm also an accountant and have worked in Banking for 35 long years. What your proposing there is essentially tax evasion, I can only assume your employers are happy to promote dishonest accounting.

15.) 28 Feb 2023 18:33:10
Perhaps we should talk about Edwards some more and why he gave Hendo his new contract. As that definitely doesn’t come under the banner of armchair accountant.

16.) 28 Feb 2023 18:48:37
Big thing to come out of all this is the rise in wages which has led operating expenses to rise dramatically - definitely something that needs addressed, whilst star players invariably warrant more wages, I just feel over the last number of years too many players have received bumper contracts, leading our wage bill to be very high in comparison to others

Whilst the likes of Edwards and Ward received plaudits for transfers negotiated, I think contracts fell under their remit too, so perhaps not all positive with that respect concerned?

Can certainly be addressed with outgoings and not giving injury prone players bumper new contracts, but shaping up to be an interesting summer coming up.

17.) 28 Feb 2023 19:05:36
Hello Babbity Rabbity, The above plc format in your post stands for Private Limited Company as you suggest! and is not to be misinterpreted as a public limited company as you state which we are not.

As you correctly state they are not "publicly" traded on Stock Exchange Listings. Babbity did you go to a nice university?

P. S. How can I Fiddle my tax and don't say on a Violin!
is it also true also that the constipated accountant worked it out with a pencil?

Flash the Redbellend! i have a liquid lunch every day in Weatherspoons in Great Charlotte Street, Liverpool L1 1HU, the aperitif i have is flash the red wine! wine and "WHINER" comes to mind i wonder why!

18.) 28 Feb 2023 19:16:15
I agree Irish. There’s a collective of posters on here that gang up others who want to post something.
I like to hear other peoples views, even if it differs to my own. Not necessarily Babbity because it doesn’t bother the regulars.

I too am a chartered accountant and CFO for a group of companies that are audited. There is some truth in what babbity has said Johnny. There is a very clear line between tax evasion and tax avoidance (or planning as they like to call it these days) . Avoidance is the legitimate use of loopholes to reduce the tax bill and also as a Ltd company they have no real motivation to ‘let profits rip’. Whenever we are doing due diligence on a company I always generally ignore the profit and loss somewhat as everything you need to know about a company is in the balance sheet …. As you can’t manipulate or hide things there! Auditors focus on the balance sheet more than any other area in their audit for this very reason.

There is good info to take from the p&l though and I had suspected that wages and associated costs were getting out of control as we have a bloated squad with several players not playing regularly on big wages. This is what Klopp was on about when saying you can’t just bring 4 new players in without knowing who will leave.

The accounts aren’t available on companies house so not looked yet but should be interesting. I’m interested in what the net debt has done over the past 12 months!

Gee, this is so colorful. ?

Can we all come to the conclusion that we will never all agree on anything?

So let's go back to football. If I see Keita, Hendo and Milner as the starting midfield again tomorrow night, I will tear my hair out (the little that has been spared by my wife) .

21.) 28 Feb 2023 19:48:05
Turns out we do actually have a few accountants on the group then ?.

Aray those 3 won’t start tomorrow night as Klopp will be resting them ready to start v Utd on Sunday ?.

22.) 28 Feb 2023 20:03:37
Tom- you stole my avoidance/ evasion lesson I was going to give as another fellow accountant…. we’re an exciting bunch ….

23.) 28 Feb 2023 20:06:49
JK, you're always one step ahead of me. ? And it looks like very shrewd thinking by Klopp, too. ?.

24.) 28 Feb 2023 20:18:00
JB12, I'd say that you're more of an "excited" bunch. Amazing how so many suddenly came out of the woodworks, the moment "annual accounts" were announced, LOL. ?.

25.) 28 Feb 2023 20:36:15
I get what you boys are saying but what are Klopp’s options? Not a great deal really, Bajatic starts maybe but who with ?‍♂️. Reality is that it’s a sh#t show at the minute and no other midfielder actually warrants a spot. Depressing?.

26.) 28 Feb 2023 20:38:02
I could have been an accountant but I'm far too interesting. I leave all my bookeeping to my accountant and all my bookmaking to Betfair. My accountant is not too bad really and has worked for both Lester Piggott and Ken Dodd, so he knows what he's doing.

27.) 28 Feb 2023 20:40:17
Aray I reckon

Hendo, Fab and Baj

Salah, Bobby and Nunez.

28.) 28 Feb 2023 21:03:04
Hello Babbity Rabbity, tom27 and JB12,

They reckon accountants are the best lovers, because they are great with figures!

Adam was the first accountant to make an entry? then lost interest after a withdrawal!

29.) 28 Feb 2023 21:11:31
Apologies for missing out johnnyr1970 from the above accountants team.

We could have a "WHIP" round for FSG, twenty lashes each sounds good to me!

30.) 28 Feb 2023 21:22:28
Haha I can’t help myself it’s the accounting geek in me that comes out! Also one of the very rare occasions that finances get discussed on here! It’s a shame they can’t be and people who have no interest can’t just scroll passed it but there you go.

I wouldn’t say ‘Come out the woodwork’ I’ve been on here for years and post occasionally …. Christ I was 27 when I signed up!

007 haha accountant jokes …. Keep them coming!

31.) 28 Feb 2023 21:49:01
Aray my friend. Please stop causing a divide on here between accountants and non accountants please.

32.) 28 Feb 2023 22:15:43
@Tom27 I fully appreciate there is a difference between evasion and avoidance but the inference in Babbity’s post was such that one would feel we have gazillions squirrelled away somewhere ‘hidden’ from the view of HMRC/ Auditors/ UEFA when the reality is likely somewhat different.

33.) 28 Feb 2023 22:27:52
Correct, JK.
That's why we don't discuss football on the finances section.

34.) 28 Feb 2023 23:00:50
Rigsby that actually made me lol ?.

35.) 01 Mar 2023 05:12:15
JK, I agree with the Fabinho and Bajcetic part. Not sure about the Hendo inclusion; he's been playing in a lot of games lately.

And kindly note that non-accountants have a right to express their opinions on annual accounts too, you know. ?.

36.) 01 Mar 2023 07:45:50
Aray I wasn’t going to include Hendo but I looked at the available squad and couldn’t see another option. The closest was Elliot but would Klopp start him and Baj and after a bright 5 mins on Sat night he then went on to pass the ball to a Palace player everytime for the next 40.

It really showed how bad the options currently are at the mo.

But how this season is going would anyone be surprised to see Naby start. I know I wouldn’t be.

37.) 01 Mar 2023 10:31:45
The Irish Rover, learn how to read. Where did I say people should not talk about finances or whatever else in my post? I made a tongue in cheek comment about how a lot of our fans not just on here but on SM, have become bean counters since FSG came about which to me seems weird. That's my opinion and here you are getting on your soapbox lecturing about things we already know about and what our right are on this forum. Whind your neck in and take a day off, bro. You ain't that special so get over yourself.

I and anyone else on here, am free to say whatever I want about whatever they want provided I do it respectfully and nobody cares about your soapbox lectures reminding me about what I already know about. Again, get over yourself.

Don't want to go overboard on the team bashing but. can anyone think of another team that have gone from being so good to being so poor in the space of about 6 months? I'm at a loss to explain how we find ourselves in this position so quickly after being so good in recent years!


1.) 14 Jan 2023 18:49:27
Us it’s 14/ 15 to 15/ 16, us 08/ 09 to 09/ 10 tbh I don’t watch much football outside of Liverpool much these days.

2.) 14 Jan 2023 19:03:51
Liester city, utd, west ham in recent memory.

3.) 14 Jan 2023 18:57:26
Said the same in group chat of friends. Shocking.

4.) 14 Jan 2023 19:06:06
Cheslea winning the league, finishing 10th and then winning the league again was a bizarre one.



08 Jan 2023 09:24:12
Interesting stat from the commentary in last night's game - Nunez now has as many goals for us in his first 23 games as both Mane and Suarez did (9). If he carries on like they did then I have no doubt he'll be a success.


1.) 08 Jan 2023 09:59:03
OP you know the best thing about Darwin? He is playing and scoring in a team that is severely underperforming as a whole which can NOT be easy for him and yet he is still playing well and scoring goals even tho I agree, he could have scored more.

Just imagine how much more goals he would have scored had the team been playing a lot better which would have helped his adaptation and confidence. Like I said before, the kid has all the tools required to be a top class CF. Hopefully when the team start ms playing better, he will get better.

2.) 08 Jan 2023 10:14:26
Funnily enough Darwin was the only positive from last night for me too. He is going to be a top class striker.

3.) 08 Jan 2023 10:51:52
Nunez is getting better and better. He is laying on some lovely chances as well. If we somehow make top 4 he will have to start scoring at an improved rate.

4.) 08 Jan 2023 11:24:40
Darwin's work rate is excellent. Goals will come undoubtedly.

5.) 08 Jan 2023 11:49:43
Nunez, the only exciting thing about Liverpool since summer.

6.) 08 Jan 2023 12:35:33
That's funny, you were claiming he couldn't score yesterday.

7.) 08 Jan 2023 14:23:54
Flash, that was unnecessary ???.

Cheers Ed002. Can't say I've seen him play really but assume he's half decent based on the list of interested teams ?.

Pearl jam, you may want to check how many of the games he played in that season. He missed 24 of the 63 we played.

Great player at the right club but has never been a great fit for this club and how we play IMO. His injury record didn't seem overly troublesome when we bought him but it's gotten massively worse since. I don't see how he gets back into the team even when fully fit - time for him to go TBH.

Kone? According to ed002, he'd prefer Chelsea. Not sure I'd want any player who has expressly stated a preference for another club.


{Ed002's Note - Gravenberch wants Manchester United.}

I absolutely hoped it would work but it was pretty obvious quite quickly that it was a failed experiment. We should have let him go a while back TBH but I suppose there has to be a taker….

Can't think why any young manager would go to RM TBH - don't win the league for a season and they're gone. Surprised Ancelotti has lasted so long there TBH.

Can't think of a reason why that post generated any 'thumbs ups'. There was absolutely nothing wrong with that performance except maybe not scoring any more or early enough. Got to love our supporters ??.

I'm thinking he looks a good buy, getting up to speed with the Pl now and only 21 years old so plenty development time. My main concern at the moment is our use of MacAlister at DM - feels a bit of a waste.

@stoneage a) I didn’t say it was a conspiracy b) plenty educated responses here about how timing of games impacts on the players c) explain why Liverpool having to play twice as many early games as other teams is fair d) you honestly think that TVs schedulers give a toss about the fans? Nonsense post from you there.
