Thanks edds for all your hard work and patience during the transfer window. Some of you probably still have the ice packs against your head.
Quick question in relation to Lemar, reported in some papers today that Wenger will go in for him again in January.
Was Liverpools interest in him fabricated by Monaco or was it genuine?
Apologies if it's been dealt with but since the window closed I'm trying to convince my boss that I am good at my job and don't deserved to be sacked so time on your site is limited.


{Ed002's Note - I explained Liverpool's interest and it was there. And Arsenal will almost certainly continue to talk with Monaco, who accepted their offer, and the player's representatives, who they did not put a firm offer to, in order to see what can be done in January or next summer. They fear Barcelona stepping in. And why would Monaco fabricate anything about a player they really don't want to sell?}

Hello Ed02, Do you think Liverpool looking at him again in January. I don't know about the future of Coutinho ( if he would continue to angle a move ) in case he would be the replacement!

{Ed002's Note - Right now I don't think Liverpool will be looking at him in January.}

2.) 08 Sep 2017 13:29:10
I'd expect us to go for someone more like Meyer or Brandt now.

Lemar will be cup tied and 92mill for someone cup tied would seems steep for me. Just an opinion tho.

3.) 08 Sep 2017 13:30:05
Liverpool will look to Lemar if Coutinho leaves next summer. If Arsenal or another club snap him up in January, then our bad luck.
There is no space in the squad to accommodate Lemar if Coutinho stays. Its one or the other.

4.) 08 Sep 2017 14:03:05
I still think we should sign Snoop Dog instead 👀.

5.) 08 Sep 2017 14:04:22
Thanks Ed02.

6.) 08 Sep 2017 15:03:58
Liverpool will look at him if Barcelona look at Coutinho.

7.) 08 Sep 2017 16:40:14
*Shock Horror*
Are we saying that Coutinho to Barcelona wasn't a one-time only opportunity?

8.) 08 Sep 2017 17:56:42
Ed can I ask why you think that mate please? Appreciate January is a long way off but seems odd you think we wint return for a player who we clearly wanted, especially as when Couts might be gone?

{Ed002's Note - It was simply a knee jerk reaction for a player who Liverpool had not courted in response to the Coutinho situation and Klopp not managing to bring in any one of his four targets for this season. As I have explained, Arsenal will return and the fear they have is of Barcelona making a concerted effort to sign him.}

9.) 08 Sep 2017 20:22:17
Klopp has said before that only if the right player becomes available, not 2nd best fit,

So unless PSG or Sthmptn have a change of heart, (very doubtful)
I don't think there will be any incomings this January,

Hopefully with the addition of Robertson and the emergence of TTA and Gomez our defence will be meaner than last year.

10.) 08 Sep 2017 20:19:43
Keita, Brandt, VVD who was the 4th target?

{Ed002's Note - Sessegnon.}

11.) 08 Sep 2017 22:37:33
Do Barcelona see Lemar as an Alternative to Couts ed? Was it now or never ultimatum for Couts from Barca?

{Ed002's Note - Done to death.}

Will Firmino be fit for the final?


{Ed0333's Note - I’d say affirmative to that mate.

1.) 08 May 2019 15:35:35
How would you drop Origi . Klopp will have a real headache, assuming Salah will be back too. I'm not sure for Shaq, but Salah, Mane, Firmino and Origi, d*mn.

2.) 08 May 2019 16:10:02
The front three will start IMO if all are fit. They are our bread and butter and should stay that way. The likes of Shaq and Origi have done us proud and that should be commended to the fullest. That does not remove from the fact that we are a much better team with the front three fit and firing. Just my opinion.

3.) 08 May 2019 16:55:46
I am pretty sure that, if fit, Mo, Bobby and Sadio will start the CL final. Divock is today’s hero but let’s not forget exactly what the Three Amigos have done over the last 2 seasons. With a likely back five of Alisson, TAA, Matip, VVD and Robbo that just leaves the midfield to sort out. My personal choice would be Fab, Hendo and Wijnaldum - sadly, Keita will miss out through injury. The likes of Millie, Gomez, Origi, the Ox and Origi will form a really strong bench.

Incidentally, Fab, Hendo and Wijnaldum have something in common. Apart from all 3 putting in awesome performances last night, all 3 have also been singled out by some posters as ‘not good enough for Liverpool’ during the earlier part of this season. I take it we will not see that nonsense ever again.

4.) 08 May 2019 19:49:27
WW, don't bet on not seeing that nonsense again on these boards. The haters and moaners have nothing else to do BUT that as in, to moan for NO apparent reason.

5.) 08 May 2019 20:17:38
Origi was excellent as were all the players last night. Salah, Mane and firmino are in my opinion the best forward line in Europe. All 3 must start if fit as Liverpool really need to win this trophy. I think Firminos goals and assists in Europe are excellent this season too.



19 Feb 2019 10:30:39
A lot of people on here bemoaning the injuries and illnesses the squad are enduring at the moment (and rightly so maybe) but we are still well placed in the league and playing in the last 16 of the c/ l this evening.
It will be a huge boost to the squad and at exactly the right time of the season when these players start returning to full fitness. It will be as if we weathered the storm. They will be like new signings.
Sometimes if it's for you it won't pass you by no matter how hard the going gets. It's ours people YNWA.


1.) 19 Feb 2019 10:50:22
I agree, our big players will be coming back to full fitness for the run on. Our first 11 have been well rested this month and even through January. I don't see burn out being a problem. Pressure will be the problem if any. But I think klopp has the team pretty cool. I'm glad Keita starts tonight alongside gini. And I think hendo playing in front of fab and matip should be okay.

2.) 19 Feb 2019 18:49:21
I'm not bemoaning injuries or illness to our squad even tho it can be very frustrating. Why? Every team has them during a season so this is nothing new. The good thing is that this team and manager refuse to quit nor be beaten. They continue to rise above the type of adversity that would have left other LFC teams of the past, finished at this stage (See Houllier's team of 2002/ 2003 season) .

Our team will be at full pelt in a couple of weeks and then, you just go for it and don't look back. Either we're going to win the PL title or we're going to fail giving it our utter best shot.



04 Jan 2019 10:22:10
Not many teams (in the world) would have coped with City last night. Don't forget we were playing the reigning champions who broke all sorts of records winning it last season. They were really up for it. Didn't give our lads any time on the ball.
We played well but weren't allowed to pick our passes as we normally are hence the amount of times we gave the ball away or just hoofed it out for a throw.
We will bounce back though YNWA.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 11:04:46
OP, I thought we contained them pretty well (which was the game plan hence, the team Klopp picked) if you believe that allowing them one shot on target (Aguero's freak goal) containing or stifling them. David Silva was a non-factor as well which is massive in such a game. City pressed us well and did not allow us time on the ball. Whay is that so surprising? They are a pressing team tho they do it in a diff. way than we do.

They gave the ball away a tonne as well and it is on one of those giveaways that Kompany fouled Salah while thru on goal and should have been sent off with a more competent ref at the helm. All that said, City won on split decision and we are still top with 4 points and I can live with that. The issue now is how do we reaction to this speed bump. We shall see.

2.) 04 Jan 2019 11:28:12
Redwolf have Liverpool ever lost a game and you didn’t have an excuse. Freak goal, incompetent Ref etc. Do you believe we should have been down to 10 men against Napoli or in your eyes was Vvds tackle a good one that night?

3.) 04 Jan 2019 12:22:18
JK VVD’s tackle was completely different. He got the ball and his follow through caught the player. Also his leg was a sweeping action not a stamping action it was just as he slid the player’s planted his leg in front of him and got caught. Unfortunate yes but no more a foul than Ben Mee on Gomez (which I didn’t think was a foul) .
Kompany’s was a desperate lunge, studs up, nowhere near the ball and extremely dangerous. Had Salah’s leg been planted it would’ve been snapped in two.
Worse than someone who makes excuses for defeats is someone who looks for reasons to criticise and tries to justify it with a nonsense comparison.

4.) 04 Jan 2019 12:55:50
Cheers for your input Bobby and yet another excuse.

5.) 04 Jan 2019 12:58:37
JK23, if you think stating or using facts to support my opinion, is making excuses then for sure, that is what I am doing. Complete bull, really! Do you know what a split decision in boxing means? It means it was an even fight but one guy landed slightly more punches than the other. The same analogy applies here, IMO.

You prolly want to try using facts some time to support your opinion instead of making pathetic comparisons that have NO bearing on the topic at hand. You think we did not play well. I think we did based on what we set out to do which was to stifle them. The non call on the tackle on Salah influenced the game (not THE reason we lost as that is stupid) . You say VVD should have been sent off vs Napoli. These are all diff. of a opinions, not excuses. You prolly want to learn the diff. Oh and by the way, your VVD comparison just got royally debunked by Bobby's Blinders and did not even have to break a sweat doing it. Love your posts, btw. Cheers, man.

6.) 04 Jan 2019 13:37:12
Redwolf what facts have you stated they are your opinions. Just to let you know klopp wasnt happy with the midfield as he was berating them most of the match. Then he substituted them. We lost the game it happens end of. Will we win the league who knows but were in with a good chance.

7.) 04 Jan 2019 13:32:46
Redwolf, I’m a little confused by that mate.

1. The only fact I saw was the qualified referee didn’t send Kompany off.

2. I never said VVD should have been sent off against Napoli. I asked if you thought he should have been sent off.

3. What is debunked? Feel like we are in a school yard argument and because 1 person has backed you then that means you have won.

8.) 04 Jan 2019 15:16:34
JK23, You made that VVD comparison. I did not and if you did not think it was a comparison, why bring it up? And it was royally debunked. VVD should not have been sent off cos he got the ball full on and his momentum caused the clash with Mertens' ankle. The ref did not send him off and even Ancelotti did not make a fuss about it either.

Also, One person backing me means nothing as I can speak for myself. I said that cos I was going to say the same thing BB said BUT he said it better than I would have. No school yard stuff here, bro. Just a passionate debate.

Oh P1, cos Klopp was angry at the midfield cos they were not doing the right thing during certain spells of the game means absolutely nothing cos I was not happy about it either. Cheers, mates.

9.) 04 Jan 2019 23:53:34
Redwolf we will have to agree to disagree then mate. I used the VVD to make the point that we can’t have our cake and eat it. For me both challenges could have been red cards but neither were given. You say the ref didn’t send VVD off so that must mean it was the right decision. But the ref didn’t send Kompany off last night either but you say that was the wrong decision. So which one is it. Ps I also have no idea what debunked means mate.



12 Dec 2018 13:30:34
Brilliant result last night. As well as getting through to the last 16 we avoided Thursday night football.

This is purely my own opinion so please don't hang me out to dry but I felt Hendo, Milner and Jini uncharacteristically gave the ball away far to often. Ok they were under pressure from a good side but when they had time they gave it away to easily. Van Dijk had to rollock them on a few occasions. We missed easy chances when we could have closed the game out. And that save from Alisson at the end, well it was straight at him.
Only reason I'm mentioning these points is had Napoli scored with that last gasp chance people would be on here tearing the team to bits for all the silly mistakes.
Other than that it was an unbelievable night lol.

On another note, can the club consider an appeal of van Dijks yellow because of the fact there was no intent other than to win the ball?


{Ed001's Note - that has been dealt with and it is boring now. Could you not just read down the page?}

1.) 12 Dec 2018 13:41:37
To quote a referee

The declaration by a player that he or she “got the ball first” is irrelevant if, while tackling for the ball, the player carelessly, recklessly, or with excessive force commits any of the prohibited actions

VVD went studs up into the oppositions leg and could have caused injury, making it a reckless challenge regardless of whether he got the ball first. a clear foul

Verratti did the same in the first leg and arguably both were borderline red cards but evened out in the end. move on.

2.) 12 Dec 2018 13:54:18
Agree about the giving away the ball part. I thought we played terrific football but there seemed to be an uncharacteristically large number of misplaced passes last night.

3.) 12 Dec 2018 17:00:04
Can we not just enjoy a great night verdo. We were under so much pressure weeks before a ball was even kick so we are not going play quite right.
On to Sunday. 🤷🏼‍♂️.

4.) 12 Dec 2018 17:56:30
I enjoyed the night alright Longthing76 but only from 10pm on lol.

Apologies to ED001 for boring you and not reading down the posts. Must remember from now on during my 30 minutes of lunch break to cut out the eating part and read all posts before posting myself.

{Ed001's Note - that would be better than repetitive posts dealing with the same thing yet again.}

5.) 12 Dec 2018 18:18:07
If you're busy during your lunch break, wait til you've got more time to reply.

6.) 12 Dec 2018 19:01:11
Just make sure you let Ed know it’s lunch break so he can drop everything to answer in time for you as well. Or, eat with your mouth, read with your eyes. Or, just wait. Or, get a job with a longer lunch break so you don’t have to prioritise sustainance over Liverpool.



12 Nov 2018 13:20:03
Only 2 points behind City at the top but they are a huge 2 points. Feel more like 5 for some reason.


1.) 12 Nov 2018 13:56:54
What? 2 points are 2 points mate. It's nothing.

2.) 12 Nov 2018 14:21:54
It's more like 2.5 point with goal difference.

3.) 12 Nov 2018 14:22:10
This makes absolutely zero sense 😂.

4.) 12 Nov 2018 14:48:21
Math teachers globally are miserably failing their jobs if 5 feels like 2. That's all I have to say.

5.) 12 Nov 2018 15:01:12
Manchester City haven't played Chelsea in the league yet. Easily the next best team after us, lots of football to be played and lots of points to be dropped.

As LiverpoolFC8 put it, Manchester City have had an absurdly good start to the season. But they're only two points ahead of a team that hasn't even gotten into second gear. let's see how we're look in February when the team is gelling.

6.) 12 Nov 2018 15:03:59
Even if we were level on points still second on goal difference so it no major issue if we go by last season we were to far back come Christmas if we are touching distance in January I fancy our chances.

7.) 12 Nov 2018 15:48:39
Don't worry guys Chelsea will do us a favour, we just need to continue beating the dross and see where we are after 1st round of the season😊 we just need to enjoy the ride 🔴🔴.

8.) 12 Nov 2018 16:17:33
I think the Xmas games may be the proving ground for all the top 6 teams.

9.) 12 Nov 2018 18:53:59
Had LFC won the PL under BR, we would have won it while having an inferior goal difference to City's so the GD is of no relevance PROVIDED we have the points advantage.

As for City, they have had a great start to the season BUT people forget that they have actually dropped more points (4 overall) than they did at this point last season (2). Also, Pep's teams are known to hit a burnout stage near the end of the season as he did with Barca, Bayern and even City last season. Why? Cos Pep does NOT rotate and never has.

The diff. last season was that they were already well ahead of the pack and also, teams would never go at them, UNTIL Klopp and LFC did and we know what happened there in all 3 occasions we played them after the winter and spring. They will falter and it will be up to us to capitalize.

{Ed025's Note - at the moment brover i think this is you hoping rather than anything mate, city look very strong and have some excellent back up,s to step in when required so i dont think your assessment holds much water, yes he does play his strongest side but that is surely to his credit and they have top players to come in even if things do go wrong, liverpool have a strong first team which is not that much weaker than citys but anyone they bring in weakens the side as the squad depth is very much inferior to theirs, this is just my opinion of course...peace..

10.) 12 Nov 2018 20:50:26
Ed25, you are having a conversation that I am not having. I never said City did not look strong nor did not have a better squad. I said they drop off during the season cos Pep does not rotate and gave you an example of this and it is the same with all Pep's teams since Barca. Will that happen this season? Of course I hope so. What were you expecting me to say? Of course we are all hoping for things to go our way cos after all, no one is sure of anything.

Also, you say he plays his strongest lineup. That is to some extent true but it is by choice. Last season, Pep complained that he was lacking depth when they drew at Burnley and they have only added Mahrez this season so again, where is the depth then? It is he who does not play the squad players and not that he does not have the squad cos It all depends on who Pep trusts and clearly he does not trust Jesus, Zinchenko, Delph, Kompany, and has no replacement for Fernandinho.

City has a better squad than we do cos they have been chopping and changing good players for years. We are still young in the tooth on that level so you are stating the obvious here, man. Will we win the PL over City? I don't know cos anything can happen. We all live in hope and that is all we have right now.

{Ed025's Note - i often talk to myself brover, its old age mate.. :) peace..

11.) 12 Nov 2018 21:19:21
Cheers, Ed25 as always.

{Ed025's Note - respect mate..

12.) 12 Nov 2018 21:35:24
I'll just add that despite my admiration for Guardiola, I've always felt that for some reason he has never been able to instill supreme mental toughness into his teams. The way Mourinho does, or the way Ferguson did. You don't get that "we refuse to be beaten" vibe from Guadiola's players. He's a master in the tactical aspects of the game and in choosing players (while having an open checkbook at his disposal), but his teams can buckle when the pressure is really high.

It was not by coincidence that we eliminated them last year in the UCL. It's irrelevant it was a different competition; the football fields were the same, the country was the same and the players were the same, as were being played in the EPL. Klopp simply did a better job of instilling mental toughness and focus in LFC.

So ManC can be flying high right now, but they can wobble at any moment under the right circumstances, and it could be enough for us to sneak through to the final prize,

13.) 13 Nov 2018 13:38:59
With regard to my original post please try and read between the lines. Point I was trying to make is that City are a fantastic squad and we will have to be flawless for the rest of the season to make those 2 points up.

100% agree stemfr. You need to be a big boy to comment on here sometimes with the way comments are ripped to shreds (not always by the Eds) . Of course the Eds are entitled to get narky every now and again. When dealing with the public it's inevitable.

Just another observation with regard to the site, typing a comment takes an age because the site becomes unresponsive. Anyone else have this issue? .

Surely by now professional players understand that with the amount of games that have to be played each season demanding game time from a potential new club is ludicrous. Different systems to counteract different opponents etc automatically dictates players have to be rotated.

Wouldn't have said it a few months back but I do now think TAA should move to midfield. Getting caught too far up now on too many occasions. Maybe tiredness or a niggle could explain it but it is an issue.

I get your point 6Times but stadia get their souls from important victories and devastating loses over a long period of time. New builds require time to gain a soul.
That is why we are so lucky to have Anfield, it's soul is huge and has brought big clubs to their knees in the past and hopefully will continue to do so in the future. YNWA.

My own humble opinion Potclay with Utd and Fergie was they went and sorted the area that was weakest the previous season (seems the obvious thing to do but not all clubs do it) . A very simple transfer strategy but was very effective. For example, in Fergies second last season they lost the title on goal difference to City. Van Persie was top scorer that season so Utd went out and bought him. The rest is history as they say.
Again my own opinion but I felt that during Utds dominance if one of their closest rivals were interested in a good player Utd would always try and sabotage the deal by either buying the player themselves to make sure their rival didn't strengthen their squad or by making sure they made them pay more than they initially intended.
