Ed's has the interest in Neuhaus passed for LFC?

spaceman

1.) 23 May 2022 20:12:25
Yes, we're signing 25 different players instead.
And that's just this week!


2.) 23 May 2022 22:22:39
Neuhaus would be a great signing! Silky player.


 

 

17 May 2022 12:40:05
Ed's, what have you heard re LFC buying Fabio Vieira? Some reports saying he is incoming.

spaceman

{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}


 

 

09 May 2022 05:44:41
Ed's, do you see FSG bringing in another forward, in anticipation of one or more of Salah, Mane and Bobby not renewing? Any new player may need a year to bed in, and it seems likely that we will loose at least one of them . On top of that Div and taki look set to leave, and FSG's succession model would suggest we need to plan for this eventuality.
Mo looks like he could do with some real competition also.

spaceman

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool also have Jota and Diaz as very capable forwards. The club should also look to utilise youngsters as well. If one of the three is sold that certainly changes things.}


1.) 09 May 2022 19:46:07
Do you think Mane will leave?

I know Ed mentioned we could be interested in Gnabry.

Shame, he's a great player. Reminds me of Aguero.


2.) 03 Apr 2022 05:30:49
With all due respect, he's nowhere close to Aguero. You are talking about one of the best strikers of the last decade, whose only weakness was his ability to consistently stay fit. Martinez has a very avg goal scoring record but yeah his work rate etc is good.


3.) 03 Apr 2022 10:21:56

Salah is talking himself up more than ever. His BT interview post Villarreal, and now these recent posts rating himself change that humble air a bit. Of course elite performers need ego and some narcissistic traits to be so good, only Mo has not shown this side of himself before.
The timing is not great either being as he has looked poor since Sadio outdid him and Egypt failed at the last.
I would not be surprised if the writing was on the wall for him at LFC.

spaceman

1.) 13 May 2022 13:55:57
Yeah I've held back posting about it but I really don't like it, there's no doubt he's not in the very best form at the moment - which is understandable considering how much footy he's played.

But he's the least consistent of our front 3 at the moment and is at risk of missing out on the golden boot in the league.

Would much rather he worked on getting back to 100% over the the big ego messages he's been sending recently.


2.) 13 May 2022 14:38:36
The most inconsistent of our front 3 and in danger of missing out on the golden boot🤔! if ever a sentence sums up how much Lfc fans take Salah for granted.


3.) 13 May 2022 14:43:30
When you’re smashing it out of the park you can talk the talk and there’s not a lot people can come back with. But when your talk is bigger than your performances then there’s always going to be that backlash.


4.) 13 May 2022 15:10:47
I think Salah has a fair bit of respect in the bank from everything he’s done in his time with us to still think he’s the best around. Only my opinion!


5.) 13 May 2022 15:14:28
100 JK23 one thing I'll temper your statement with is he could have given most of those interviews earlier in the season when he was absolutely flying and they're only coming to light now? . I've absolutely no problem with a player declaring he's "one of the best around" as long as he backs it up and to be fair to Mo over the last 5 years he has. A couple of dodgy weeks because he's absolutely exhausted won't change my opinion of him.


6.) 13 May 2022 15:49:50
Curtis Jones according to our fans is one of the best in the world. Is he backing up with performances @ OMM. So what’s the rule changes for Salah. He simply doesn’t need to prove anything anymore.


7.) 13 May 2022 16:03:07
I don't see a problem with it. In addition to OMM's comment about the timing of these comments/ interviews, it is the way world class athletes talk for the most part. You think LeBron James doesn't think he is the best on the court whenever he gets one? You think Tom Brady doesn't think that?

Not only does Brady think that, he says it openly on the field cos even at this stage being the GOAT at QB, he STILL plays with a bolder on his shoulder. Same for Salah, IMO. It keeps them motivated and hungry especially guys like Tom Brady who like Salah, was immensely underrated and many of the "specialists" didn't think they would amount to anything in their sport. Because you wouldn't do something cos it wouldn't work or would be in poor taste for you, does not mean others should do or not do the same esp. if it works for them. There are no rules here. Just preferences. And if Salah can't live up to it then, he'll take the L and life will go on.


8.) 13 May 2022 16:07:54
My point wasn't a lack of appreciation for Salah and what he can do, its more that he's saying he's the best in the world but if he doesn't focus on upping his performances over the next couple of games there's a good chance he won't finish top goalscorer which isn't great for the narrative he's trying to push.

I have no doubt he's awesome, the timing of him telling people is just abit off!


9.) 13 May 2022 16:17:27
Klopp must be loving all this media attention.


10.) 13 May 2022 16:52:32
Harry, show me one poster that has said Curtis Jones is one of the best in the world? Just one!


11.) 13 May 2022 18:19:58
He thinks he's the best, he's proved it for 5 seasons now! wheres d problem?


12.) 13 May 2022 19:34:03
Hahahaha. One of our posters said "Curtis Jones is one of the best of the world"? I don't believe it for even one second because nobody is that deluded. But. There's this one guy who makes up stuff as he goes along. Big time lies and traitorous club affiliations. 😉.

14.) 13 May 2022 22:33:10
Some people have very short (or very poor) memories.


15.) 14 May 2022 10:17:21
My opinion on it is that all the best players have a tinge of arrogance. With Mo a desire to be the best seems to be what drives him. You can see he's hungry for team and individual success. As long as it doesn't negatively impact his work rate on and off the pitch I couldn't care less, but I think it helps rather than hinders him.


16.) 14 May 2022 20:07:17
Nobody has ever said Curtis Jones is one of the best players in the world ever Harry. You don't half talk some absolute rubbish.


 

 

22 Apr 2022 16:45:35
Rumours floating around that Mo wants the armband - this, I believe, is one of the big sticking points re the contract.
He got the hump when TAA was given the armband in a CL game, in the absence of Henderson and VVD.

Salah has made numerous comments over the years about his status in the squad; but he has never been voted into the dressing room "leadership group".
Klopp doesn't get involves in that and if the players aren't picking Mo for this role, then I don't know what more the club can do.


I also think Klopp's contract status is a background issue here.
If Salah is signing up for four years, but Klopp goes after two, then what is the plan for the future?
Will FSG make a push to extend Klopp for a couple more seasons and get through the 10 year barrier? Maybe that is a big concern for Salah.

1.) 22 Apr 2022 17:13:13
A lot of supposition there, with nothing to back it up.


2.) 22 Apr 2022 17:17:20
Not surprising at all. I'm not going to get into whether he should get it or deserves it, because those who get the armband now, are not any less deserving. But the point is that if it's a decision made by the players, then Salah needs to discuss it with the seniors in the team. And ask for the Ballon D'Or, while he's at it.


3.) 22 Apr 2022 17:20:40
I think it’s mostly about money to be honest.


4.) 22 Apr 2022 17:27:31
I think the eds have said the hang-up is over image rights.


5.) 22 Apr 2022 17:54:42
I'm sceltical about this tbh. Mo is not an idiot and can hardly expect to be jumped ahead of the likes of van Dijk, TAA and Robbo to replace Milner as vice captain (Henderson will not be relieved as captain for anyone's benefit, so replacing Milner when he leaves is the best he could possibly get) if his team-mates nominated them for as stand in captains and not him.

I saw quotes allegedly from him today about his longevity and saying he can go as long as CR7, so if that's what he's coming out with, maybe the key issue is the length of contract. I'm sure a middle ground could be found whereby he automatically gets extended if he scores X number of goals or plays X number of games in his final season.


6.) 22 Apr 2022 18:14:37
Why can Salah hardly expect to be ahead of Trent and Robbo in the Captain pecking order? He should be at least level in the thinking of Klopp and only behind Virg to take over from Hendo. He might be a bit greedy but work-wise and for the impact he's had surely he has to be right up there.


7.) 22 Apr 2022 18:25:41
Over the summer Klopp asked the squad to vote for three more players to captain the team if the existing captains (Hendo, Millie and van Dijk) were out. They nominated Trent, Robbo and Alisson. They did not nominate Salah. Obviously Salah knows this.

So why would he expect Klopp to elevate him ahead of the guys the squad as a whole actually wanted?


8.) 22 Apr 2022 18:51:52
In fairness If I’ve ever seen a team that appears to have 11 leaders on the pitch at an one time it’s this one. Not really sure it matters who is captain.


9.) 22 Apr 2022 19:09:04
The more Salah comes out in interviews talking about the more I think he’s gone. The club won’t be happy about these attempts to make it look like it won’t be his fault when he is sold or leaves on a free. Imagine a world where your only job is to play a game you love for a club you are supposedly happy at whilst getting paid multiple hundreds of thousands of pounds every week and that not being good enough. I despair for the poor lad I really do.


10.) 22 Apr 2022 19:50:31
Some great replies there gents. Thankyou.

To be honest wages are irrelevant to me because every single high level professional footballer is over paid in my opinion but that doesn’t stop me from spending the wages I earn every month on LFC so for me to comment on wages would just make me a hypocrite.

Another question though.

If in the summer one of Haaland, Mbappe, Bellingham, Rice (I’m clutching at straws now trying to come up with ridiculous potential players) or another named player that anyone wants to come up with announced to the media that the only club they will move to is Liverpool and they will do anything to force that move through which drives the price down.

But that player then says they want 400-500k a week. Would we then be happy with paying a player who has not done a single thing for LFC in the past to get that contract over Salah who has proven he is world class at the club?

I only named such players because due to the fee they would demand at a guess I would say 300k would be the weekly fee they would look at being the lowest. If we aren’t happy then that takes out of the equation of going for such players in the future then.

12.) 23 Apr 2022 00:07:18
Westwood. That's how it is in all professional sports nowadays. Sports athletes are placed on a such a high pedestal, that they lose touch with what life is like on the ground and refuse to come down from that pedestal when it's time.


13.) 22 Apr 2022 23:26:47
Salah is leaving for a bigger pay day if he can get it. As he has wanted to for the last few years. He has earnt it and if not for C.V. he would be in RM by now. Stop bitching and wish him the best. Bowen will replace him and life goes on. Spaceman is constantly speculating nonsense. Grow up.


14.) 23 Apr 2022 04:36:50
Rambo8, why Bowen? He will not score anywhere near the amount of goals Salah scores. Bowen is a good player but no way near the level of a Salah. We have 5 forwards, who have scored a combined goals total of 59 goals in the premier league, of which salah has scored 22 (with 12 assists) and the other 4 have scored a combined total of 37. Bowen would not get anywhere near that. It would be backward move for us.


15.) 23 Apr 2022 07:10:14
Kloppistopp if you’re expecting us to replace Salah like for like, you’re going to be disappointed. Any player is a backwards step from Mo but I think Bowen would fit in nicely and any front 3 we put out is going to be full of goals.


16.) 23 Apr 2022 07:59:22
The very first word in the opening post is the key - "Rumours".
Captaincy, money, image rights, nobody knows for sure so it's all just a guessing game.
Meanwhile I hope he gets his mojo back in fine style against our blue brethren tomorrow as he's been a shadow of himself recently.


17.) 23 Apr 2022 11:14:45
If anyone wants to leave because they are not captain, we should insist that they leave.
I'm not saying that Salah is doing this, mind.


18.) 23 Apr 2022 18:02:23
As good as Bowen may be, it would be a backwards step replacing Salah with him. Salath is worth 30 goals a season consistently (in goals and assists combined) and Bowen is a big drop off in quality and output. That’s just stone cold fact.

Given we are so reliant on our forwards (we don’t score many from midfield or anywhere else), losing a bonafide 20 goals and 10 assists a season forward and not replacing him like for like would be stupid to say the least, particularly given that City are going to sign Haaland (who as much as I want him to fail spectacularly is more likely to be a big hit) which makes it even more difficult to compete.

I can’t see a logical argument for not renewing, as selling leaves us no room for a quality replacement who can fill the void in the team, I’ve yet to see anyone who advocates selling Salah propose one single suitable replacement as we’re certainly not getting the likes of Haaland or Mbappe.

I'd quite like Robbie Fowler to ref it.

You didn't specify it had to be an actual referee.

Jokes aside, unless they're pulling Pierluigi Collina out of retirement, I think they all have a gaffe in them. So it doesn't matter. It'll probably be Mike Dean or Andre Marriner.

Trent Alexander-Arnold. He’s fit enough, knows how to pull his socks up correctly and would no doubt remain utterly impartial. Just need to show him how to blow a whistle correctly and he would be an excellent choice.


7.) 22 Mar 2022 10:01:04
Sorry Bobby but Stone Cold is a terrible ref. He would end up awarding himself a penalty then expect a beer to be thrown to him. But as there would only be liverpool fans in attendance then in the small chance he get get one to give up a beer then the next day we would wake up to a missile thrown at the ref contreversy.

This midfield while high in numbers unfortunately lacks durability and breadth of quality.

When Thiago doesn't play the midfield lacks a lot and without Fabinho looks very vulnerable. The likelihood is that Thiago will miss a number of games, especially as he gets older. Hendo looked physically knackered at times and even Fabinho cannot do it every week. Milner is ok for the odd game and there are still huge questions marks over Naby"s fitness and 90 min performance level.
The likes of Jones and Elliott are great at driving forward but aren't defensive players. That's fine, let's not try and make them into something they are not. Let them do what they are good at.
In all of our options though we lack an athletic, pacy, young, strong defensive midfielder to sit along side and then cover Fabinho. That makes us very vulnerable in transition, runners from midfield and players in between the lines.

With this recruitment team I am sure they have their eye on someone this summer. The reliable journos said months ago the club believed Tchou would end up at Madrid and so I think their main target is someone else. I think they realise we cannot wait a season but are putting that message out there to play a bit of poker with the buying club at the moment and avoid us getting rinsed on the price. A little like they did re Alisson after the CL final in 2018. With that player in we will be a match for anyone this season!

He looks like a Klopp type squad player who would not be on silly wages, and could cover a few positions. Looks very hard working .
This makes sense as a no frills quality squad upgrade.
