Are Liverpool trying to sign / still hold interest in Bruno Fernandes?

Some sites are saying he is close to signing for United, and others say Liverpool FC are close to the signing.


1.) 10 Jun 2019 11:19:56
Spurs are interested, especially if Eriksen leaves. They also have interest in Lo Celso. I don’t know if they want both. This has been on this site.
Any other information I’ve read is conflicting, I agree. No two sources are saying the same thing.
Type ‘Chiesa’ into the search bar to see Ed002’s comments on him.

2.) 10 Jun 2019 12:59:17
Echo have literally just put out that were set to sign 💪🏼.

3.) 10 Jun 2019 13:04:30
We hold interest as Ed has stated previously but we don’t know anything more.

We are keen to bring someone into that role.

4.) 10 Jun 2019 13:23:20
Markp08, yes interested but no approach to his club. Manchester bound very likely if not about done already.

5.) 10 Jun 2019 14:10:49
I can't see why United would be an appealing option for him other than money reasons. Attacking based midfielders, kagawa, depay, mhychatarian, di Maria, Sanchez, pogba, mata have seen their careers damaged or slowed down lately, United are currently a fresh rebuild which doesn't even seem ready to start yet, with a manager who already seems out of his depth with no champions league football. If he would choose United in this current moment over other teams it would show him as a player and person I wouldn't want anyway. He seems like a hard working commited player on the field but maybe his career ambition doesn't reflect that. I'd be amazed if any top player chose United and ole over spurs and Liverpool, poch and klopp for any sort of footballing reasons. Of course I'm presuming United aren't his only option.

6.) 10 Jun 2019 14:23:38
I get what your saying Har and I agree mate. However it seems he is swaying towards the Red half of Manchester. It will be financial reasons.

7.) 10 Jun 2019 15:37:48
Is there genuine truth to that virgil? Shocking decision the lad has made if the case. Makes no sense, a team very far away from playing a style to suit him unless ole drastically brings a complete different approach. He'd suit Liverpool city spurs or Chelsea far more.

8.) 10 Jun 2019 16:25:53
Tbh Har_red92 I’m not a so called ITK mate lol by any stretch. Just from what I can gather from here and the Itd pages and talking to others it certainly seems to be that he is heading to Utd. The very fact we’ve not even spoke to his club whilst others have says a lot. Also the cost of the guy up in the 70-80M area with us not looking to spend that amount. Will see I guess but my money would be on Utd.

9.) 10 Jun 2019 17:17:43
Yeah I always thought a 50 mil offer or roughly that ball park is what sporting would actually accept. They're not financially great and he's their only major money asset. Unless multiple teams are offering at once I couldn't see 80mil being the lowest Lisbon would accept. I get that we probably aren't fussed with that kind of fee I was just hopeful we might splurge the kind of money that was nearly spent on fekir last year. I think he'd fit us nicely, probably the best no.10 available this summer and a club with little financial strength to refuse decent bids.

10.) 10 Jun 2019 17:43:17
Agree entirely mate. I think he is the best option available and Klopp would work wonders inter grating him into the team, but doesn’t look likely. We also have Kieta and Ox who will need game time.

11.) 10 Jun 2019 18:40:30
Yeah I agree bud, for that type of money you would want to be expecting a weakness being vastly improved instead of hoping to just add to an already strong midfield. Many people still think a 10 is needed but I'm not so sure. Klopp looked to try and implement 4231 last year, I feel that was why a fekir type was wanted. I feel he's learned 433 suits us much better and a midfielder might actually be of zero importance anymore.

12.) 10 Jun 2019 21:54:46
Like he fabinho signing out of knowere, i would not be surprised that i wake up to see him signed for us, if klopp wants him. If he doesn't then I respect Klopp's plans as he knows far more about football than any of us.

{Ed025's Note - speak for yourself jammin.. :)

13.) 10 Jun 2019 22:02:38
Ed025, edit: a manager at the highest level knows a hell of a lot more than me. But would also question anyone that thinks they know more about football than one of the best managers of our time.

{Ed025's Note - its subjective jammin, and tongue in cheek at times mate..

14.) 10 Jun 2019 23:07:42
I love a deal out of nowhere. I remember kewell at the time hitting my complete surprise when I first heard. So excited for that deal, what a let down haha. And Andy Carroll out of nowhere too. Another terrible let down. Raul meireles too happened fast with no previous links.

15.) 10 Jun 2019 23:45:06
Virg if he is our top target for AM we better get a move on.

16.) 10 Jun 2019 23:49:38
We don't have any big areas of weakness anymore Har. So now we need to try and turn good or very good players to great. I still think the midfield could do with one really top addition.

17.) 10 Jun 2019 23:53:31
Yes Man Utd have been playing crap football recently but I don't think we can say that Fernandes going there would be for the money. Its possible that he is buying into the plan that Ole has (if Woodward allows him to have one) . Im going to wait and see what sort of footy they try to play next year.

18.) 11 Jun 2019 01:51:37
Possibly. I just think at this moment in time if he had options of where to move, United are the furthest behind in football attraction. No champions league and a group of players that need overhaul aplenty.

19.) 11 Jun 2019 02:48:32
Yeah mark but I think if we were to bring in a high quality midfielder, only one of OX, keita, gini, Milner, henderson could play the 8 role if fabinho in the 6. Asides from Milner, as we need his versatility. I could not choose between 1 of those to move on, we have no reason to replace any, and we can't keep them all, OX and keita offered no contribution last year. It's essentially like we have already gained 2 new players with fresh starts.

20.) 10 Jun 2019 23:19:52
Ed025 you clearly are not on here enough for people to get that scouse sense of humour mate. What are you doing with your time? Actually don't answer that, there are some things in life you just don't want to know.

{Ed025's Note - people tend to get too serious at times burkey, life is too short for seriousness all the time so im here to lighten the mood mate, hell im an evertonian for gods sake and spend most of my time crying so i come on here for respite and a way to vent my frustration, most people get me and some dont and they are the ones that make it all worthwhile.. :)

21.) 10 Jun 2019 23:21:51
I only saw your smile emoji after i replied ed025 . I'm a bit emoji unaware. Old age.

{Ed025's Note - no problem jammin mate, im old as well but still very attractive to women so it does,nt bother me so much.. :)

22.) 11 Jun 2019 07:45:00
Haha, I love Ed025's sharp snarky wit, it warms my cockles on those cold footballess nights. If ya ever need a hug or a shoulder to cry on (like when Richarlison leaves next month) I'm here for ya mate.

{Ed025's Note - thats nice to know JM,...although i would prefer it to be carol kirkwood of course mate.. :)

23.) 11 Jun 2019 08:21:37
Jaysus Ed025, that's a bit harsh. You just ain't seen me in hot-pants yet.

{Ed025's Note - even just reading that puts me in a cold sweat JM.. :)

24.) 11 Jun 2019 09:11:22
Markp08 I meant he is possibly our best option mate but not our top target I don’t think. Like I say I think he is Utd bound mate unfortunately.

25.) 11 Jun 2019 10:35:54
Ed025 is a double for George Clooney or is that George Formby🤔.

{Ed025's Note - its definitely clooney barry...unless im cleaning windows mate.. :)

26.) 11 Jun 2019 11:57:01
Or leaning on a lamppost Ed😁.

{Ed025's Note - very much so barry.. :)



28 Jan 2019 23:19:02
Looks like VVD, TAA and Gomez will all be missing on Wednesday.

We don't have much pace to deal with Vardy. Looks like we will have to defend deeper, no other option.

Just Pray VVD can get off his sick bed.


1.) 29 Jan 2019 01:56:05
guess we will have to go back to the old style of "score one more than the opposition"

2.) 29 Jan 2019 06:29:35
Nooooo. Virgil has to be ok surely, I’ve had a cold and cough last week or so but I’ve still gone to work lol.

3.) 29 Jan 2019 06:37:09
I must admit I'm quite concerned about this game going on that news, fingers crossed we can get the three points but I'm not very confident about this one.

4.) 29 Jan 2019 07:26:39
It’s going to snow in he midlands this week, maybe Vardy and Gray will simultaneously slip and twist an ankle. looks left and right)

5.) 29 Jan 2019 07:42:13
Salah, I share the same worries and thoughts mate. Could well be a struggle especially if Virgil is out. Don’t like the thought of Vardy, Gray and co running at Matip and Camacho. Are well it is what it is I guess and we will find out soon enough we’re we are at.

6.) 29 Jan 2019 07:53:34
We beat Leicester at their place earlier in the season, I have no doubt we'll see the off again tomorrow. May be a bit scrappy but I'm confident 👍.

7.) 29 Jan 2019 07:54:27
Bloody hell lads - what's going on? We have just had 11 days off, and we are playing at Anfield under the lights. Our defence and midfield will be similar to theirs but our front 3 will cause them all sorts of problems.

The team will need the support more than ever on Wednesday, stay positive. It won't all be plain sailing in winning the league.

No more negative posts.

8.) 29 Jan 2019 07:51:19
This is why our manager's use to say no one man is bigger than the club. We all start panicking because VVD is out, we just need to support the other £300M+ worth of talent we put out on the pitch.
Here's a stat to give you hope. Leicester have been beaten in the Premier league 9 times with teams that didn't contain VVD, TAA or any of our regular back line.

11.) 29 Jan 2019 09:09:45
I’m no expert but I’d reckon they are more worried about our attack than we need to be about theirs.
It’ll be very difficult for them to attack at all when we smother them and bag 3 in the first half!

12.) 29 Jan 2019 10:45:56
For goodness sake, we are Liverpool, we are top of the Premier League, we are playing at home, it’s Leicester not Barcelona, they have lost 9 out of 23 Premier League games, we have got 29 points more then them - and they have got Wes Morgan and Harry Maguire in central
defence! Get a grip lads and have some faith in our manager and his squad.

13.) 29 Jan 2019 11:26:20
Have you been hanging around Walter salah? This is the first time I've seen a negative comment from you. ;)

14.) 29 Jan 2019 11:28:18
Van dijk will play unless he's still got the runs until 20 minutes before the game. He's made of stronger stuff and knows how important he is to us. I have no doubt he will play.

{Ed025's Note - gastroenteritis is a bad bug nun, if he plays i hope he does,nt lovren himself.. :)

15.) 29 Jan 2019 11:44:59
Surely you could lend him a couple of your immodiums ed25? 😉.

{Ed025's Note - either that or a pair of my lycra shorts KK.. :)

16.) 29 Jan 2019 12:49:44
If VVD sharted early in the game then that would prompt the Leicester players from getting too close - perfect solution for me.

17.) 29 Jan 2019 12:52:14
I'm confident of a 3-0 victory.

18.) 29 Jan 2019 13:28:08
I’ve seen us beat Leicester loads of times before we signed VVD and before we were anywhere near as good as we are now.
Why is everyone panicking so much?

19.) 29 Jan 2019 15:41:18
Alisson, Milner, Matip, Lovren, Robertson are enough against Leicester City.

20.) 29 Jan 2019 15:59:10
Uh no Milner maybe Camacho.

21.) 29 Jan 2019 17:34:43
Wow, a couple of injuries and this site suddenly turns in an episode of Dad's Army. Don't panic, don't panic!

22.) 29 Jan 2019 17:37:54
and I get told all season to be realistic? hypocrites.

23.) 29 Jan 2019 17:38:36
Klippertys klopp, hahaha about right mate lol.

24.) 29 Jan 2019 20:10:13
This is my worst fear. in the space of a week we will be behind city playing catch up. the league is finally lost even earlier than I expected.
Was good whilst it lasted.

25.) 29 Jan 2019 22:17:24
And suddenly its a chance to go 7 clear :)

There will be massive changes for the FA Cup tie v Everton. I think only around 3 first choice players will start.

1 defender
maybe Milner
can't see anymore than that. Really hope Hendo doesn't play.


1.) 03 Jan 2020 09:21:47
It’s 6 days after the FA cup to Tottenham, I think we’ll put out a strong side, particularly with Ancelotti in as new coach and Klopp won’t want to lose this one.

I’d like to see Larouci in to rest Robbo. Play Hendo, Milner and Lallana in midfield to rest Gini and Origi to start, resting Firmino. Elliot to come on to score the winner!

2.) 03 Jan 2020 10:03:08
I wouldn’t be surprised to see Adrian start as well. But id like us to go as strong as possible. Looking forward to hopefully seeing Minamino play some part. Win this one and the bandwagon rolls on. Hopefully get the luck of the draw that City seem to have in The Fa cup and we could get a nice run of fixtures to the later rounds and add another trophy to the haul.

3.) 03 Jan 2020 11:01:32
Think Nico Williams has gone ahead of Larouci. Think the front 3 will be Mane, Minamino, Origi.

4.) 03 Jan 2020 11:13:26
It hates me to say this but I don’t think any of the starting 11 from last night should play against Everton. That leaves Adrian, Lallana and Origi plus the kids. It is what it is. We simply cannot afford any more injuries and it’s the tired legs which create a lot of muscle related injuries.

Let Everton supporters have their day. Not sure they even remember how to celebrate!

5.) 03 Jan 2020 11:34:41
Lose the battle and win the war

Rest everyone who needs a break from Everton game.

If they win then so be it. We take our revenge when we go to Goodson for the 3 points.

6.) 03 Jan 2020 16:41:53
I stopped being arsed about Everton with every passing derby Origi destroys them, really. They are no longer worth my time nor headache esp. with the PL in sight. We need our boys to rest up and I ain't playing my top guys in an FA Cup 3rd round game where if we win, who cares? If we lose, the Bitters will have something to shout about for a while and still no one would care. Mr Klopp, do what you think is best for the team and the club. We are with you all the way which ever way you go.



15 Dec 2019 11:21:51
Allison was good yesterday as others have said. Thought Hendo was the best midfielder and IMO Gomez played well. Gomez got caught out once or twice but generally he played well. We seemed to be getting opened up down the flanks far too easily though.

I was surprised both Hendo and Gini played from the start as they have been used a lot recently. Naby has played the last 2 games but there must be a reason Ox, Lallana, Origi have not played since the Derby.


1.) 15 Dec 2019 12:00:07
I keep saying this phrase “a nice break in the sun” and themes there on.
There’s going to be no nice break. The South Americans are bang up for this.
The Flamengo fans have been chanting about taking Liverpool’s scalp.
I’m very wary of these games, they can turn very feisty and nasty even.
At the very least there will be two hard-fought matches to play.

2.) 15 Dec 2019 12:16:44
They have a game to play before playing us. It will be funny if, you know, they don't even get to meet us.

3.) 15 Dec 2019 12:17:46
Yea but we don't have to play the same 11, most players should only play one game in 12 days.

4.) 15 Dec 2019 15:44:32
We've taken 4 senior defenders. They will probably all start both. Allison will start both. The front three will all start 1 and play a portion of the other.
The only place we can rotate properly is the midfield.
We need 2 full backs.

5.) 15 Dec 2019 21:29:51
The forecast is rain in Qatar so not sure it’ll be that great.

6.) 15 Dec 2019 22:01:53
just for first few days, then power tanning weather.



13 Dec 2019 10:36:31
Got 2 tickets for tomorrow's game. Had to use a third party site but the Watford game is more affordable than most. Everything has been smooth so for but still have to collect tickets from Liverpool tomorrow.


1.) 13 Dec 2019 11:01:14
Enjoy the game and sing your heart out.

2.) 13 Dec 2019 12:43:20
Cheers mate. With the Klopp news I am sure the ground will be buzzing.

3.) 13 Dec 2019 12:52:29
Enjoy the game mark. If you don’t mind me asking, how much did you pay and what site did you use?

4.) 13 Dec 2019 13:01:37
How much markp08?

5.) 13 Dec 2019 13:03:05
And enjoy bruva. Lucky git. Wjinaldum is amazing in real life, so is firmino. They all are, but they stand out to me for their quickness of touch and mind.

6.) 13 Dec 2019 13:52:39
Have fun mate.

7.) 13 Dec 2019 14:09:47
Enjoy the match I am hopeful of another 3 points.

8.) 13 Dec 2019 14:34:52
Thanks everyone
I will report back tomorrow if all goes to plan. No point me giving out bad info.

On the sites the price seen is never the finished price, they add tax, fees, postage or collection charges etc. I choose a slightly higher priced ticket, from a so called trusted seller. Total £270 for 2 tickets, collection Liverpool hotel.

I have checked prices a lot recently and this match was the cheapest. Wolves for example would be well over £600 for 2.

09 Nov 2019 15:17:33
In the premier league era we have got ourselves in positions to either challenge for titles or win the title on quite a few occasions. But in most of the vital games we have been too passive, nervous or not quite good enough.

This is our time we are on the up, we have our best ever premier league team full of leaders. We have improved since we last played City and their current team is there for the taking. Keep the foot down and go for the win, 100% from the off.

I am very very confident we will win be a couple of goals, this is our time.


1.) 10 Nov 2019 05:28:52
Im never confident until the final whistle. City are an exceedingly talented team. We can match their ability but the result will likely depend on who turns up with the right mindset. And, of course, how the video referees perform on the day.

2.) 10 Nov 2019 07:52:00
Mark, I disagree. We have actually been very good in pivotal games vs the big teams whenever we have been in a genuine/ real title challenging season for the most part. In 08/ 09, we did the double over Utd, Chelsea and got two draws vs Arsenal. Where we screwed up was the NINE other draws vs the so called lesser teams which cost us the PL. We turn even 5 of those draws into wins (like we have been doing this season) we win the PL, easily.

In 13/ 14, we beat Arsenal, Utd (utd twice) and lost a squeaker to City in a game we had no business losing were it not for some bad luck and poor refereeing. And to cap it all, we beat City at home in THE most pivotal game of that season. What did us in was aou inability to stop leaking goals and BR's incompetence going into the Chelsea game.

Last season, we were passive in a couple of big away games BUT in the end, you can't win them all and btw, some poor officiating did us in vs LC at home where Atkinson did his "thing" denying a stonewall pen on Naby. You can't plan for such things. Did I also mention that City won 18 of their last 19 games? Sometimes you have to salute your opponent as well, bro. Either way, not arsed about the past. Hopefully we have learned our lessons and we can get a win today. Peace!



03 Nov 2019 09:25:12
TAA is getting better and still only 21. He seems totally driven to help LFC win the league. He was up and down yesterday non stop and his quality on the ball is the best we have. TAA pings the ball into his team mates just some of the time they can't control his passes. He will hopefully become an Anfield great.


1.) 03 Nov 2019 11:26:45
He's the best right back in the world for LFC. Not saying he's the best right back in the world, but his passion for the club makes him the best right back for us. I reckon he'll get close to Gerrard appearance levels with us.

DAP - "A good foundation" that's a massive understatement. Agreed on the money side but I expect the better we do on the field the more money will be earnt. Some of the extra will of course be paid to the players. VVD, Mane, Salah they all should be on £300k a week in todays market.

The Wombats exactly right the poster in question is never right and shot his mouth off on a daily basis. We should all take nothing for granted and take each game as they come.

But it is great to be supporting such a quality side led by a great manager.

We didn't win yesterday without Mane we needed him to get the 3 points. Salah was no better than Bobby yesterday and we lacked a cutting edge until Mane came on. The conditions and the time off didn't help

We will just have to agree to disagree on Bobby's performance.

Mane was more effective in 20mins than Bobby was in 90. It was very much style over substance for Bobby yesterday and proved how much we miss Mane when he doesn't play.

Keita showed a few glimses while running with the ball, but very rusty. Grino as you say that Hendo pass was real quality.

16 Feb 2020 10:40:35
Bobby didn't have a good game last night. The best thing he did was track back 50 yards to help defend and won the ball. Going forward he offered very little, 3 times he had a clear run into the area but within a few strides he lost the ball. The open goal miss summed up his evening. We should be talking about the real skill in the game which was Mane's control and finish, no other player on the pitch could have scored that goal, WOW.

Hendo was very good again in both positions.

Trying to sell Gini was mentioned quite a bit on here at the time. I know you like Gini WW but he is one Klopp feels can be improved, I agree with that as well. To get even better we need to start scoring a few more goals to take pressure off later in matches. The midfield needs a few more goals IMO.
