Ed001 if your about mate please. With us keeping Couts this season how likely is it he will leave at end of season? Barcelona saying it was now or never probably means that's will be that. With Can likely leaving to replaced by Keita im just thinking what the chances of Couts staying beyond this season are please?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I expect him to continue to try and push his way out to be honest.}

15 Sep 2017 19:48:39
Ffs right ok mate.

Agree0 Disagree3

16 Sep 2017 05:00:42
Why? I'd Coutinho helps us over achieve this season and acts decently and the offer is respectable the why not let him go? His replacement is the famed 'navy kieth' and the money he brings in CBA be used on a defender/ keeper/ goal scorer or more likely another midfielder!

Agree1 Disagree1

16 Sep 2017 05:26:05
Who should be the partner of keita in midfield next season?

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Sep 2017 08:08:44
Keita, Hendo and either Wini or Lallana.

Agree0 Disagree2

17 Sep 2017 07:31:40
Barca won't offer 100 million plus again.

FFP being looked at again within the big euro clubs and this will limit the transfer fees.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Sep 2017 18:51:30
Amazing how many people can predict what Barcelona will do next summer, can any of you psychics tell me the lottery numbers?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Sep 2017 00:31:05
Studge to start v Burnley. Bobby shattered.

Agree11 Disagree3

15 Sep 2017 01:14:29
Wouldn't surprise me in the slightest, I'd expect Robertson to start too.

Agree10 Disagree0

15 Sep 2017 01:18:55
Thanks for leaking the team info Kloppo :P
Everyone in the team should be shattered by our result, not just Bobby. So maybe we should drop everyone. On a serious note, we should really try putting Gomez in his favourite CB spot to partner Matip. Too many mistakes from Lovren and Klavan is not good enough.

Agree32 Disagree4

15 Sep 2017 06:29:18
Agreed DAPred.

Agree8 Disagree0

15 Sep 2017 09:13:31
Although I wanna see Gomez start centre half as well I expect him to get his chance there in a cup game first, depends on the form of Trent as well though, if Gomez is a success in the middle then it leaves Trent as our only real option on the right until clyne gets fit, the lad doesn't need that pressure.

Agree3 Disagree3

15 Sep 2017 11:35:24
Milner for cover at RB.

Agree7 Disagree3

15 Sep 2017 11:53:24
Flanno is there aswell Mikey.

Agree7 Disagree1

15 Sep 2017 12:27:14
Milner as right back all day long he right footed should give us nice balance, then we can put gomez in centre with matip, as bad as the result was the other night we never got beat an sevilla are a very experienced European side, we played great the other night jus our defence let us down let's take sum positives and beat burnley.

Agree6 Disagree1

15 Sep 2017 18:35:12
Not just the defence who have defensive responsibilities is it hailstones?
Our midfield needs to be a little more tuned in as well.
Remember Spurs in the 90's under Ardiles?
They defended as a 5 and conceded goal after goal after goal. We have to defend as a unit. Yes the defender are at fault for some individual mistakes but maybe if the midfield did their job, the defenders wouldn't have been put in those situations in the first place - think about that.

Agree1 Disagree2

15 Sep 2017 18:57:22
As much as I'd love to see Gomez tried at centre half I just don't see it happening unless there's injuries. I'm a big Klopp fan but he is extremely stubborn when it comes to certain players or positions.

Agree3 Disagree0

15 Sep 2017 20:55:27
Olirish, whilst I get your point, Hailstones is correct, our defence is woeful.

We conceded 42 goals last season, 12 of those from set pieces, a failure to clear our lines, zonal marking. That's nearly a third of goals shipped, nothing to do with the midfield mate. If you've watched us live, you'll feel and understand the tension and anxiety around the ground everytime the opposition get a set piece!

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Sep 2017 21:17:12

Sorry but I'm gong to upset the apple cart here.

Were you at the game on Wednesday? If so, you wouldn't be making such a ridiculous comment regarding everyone being shattered.

Bobby and Mané were looking really tired with 20 mins to go. The tv moniters follow the ball and see nothing what goes on off the ball. Bobby absolutely ran his heart out on Wednesday night and if you watch, his tiredness led to him losing the ball in midfield, one of the factors in Sevilles equalising goal.

Dday 82, you are actually correct mate, clearly those 25 likes for DApred were not at the match on Wednesday.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Sep 2017 22:38:05
Olirish 1, mate did u not see lovren make a hash for 1st goal nothing too do with midfield that mate we have had this defence for a season an lovren for 3 seasons and nothing has changed an it needs too, our midfield does a decent job but admittedly we could do with a real defensive sweeper midfielder specialist too allow other 2 midfielders too get on with it and give balance but we ain't got that.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Sep 2017 05:02:34
I respect the job Flanagan once did and love his attitude but why do people stillah e such high hopes? Surely it's obvious that he's not good enough when you see a younger lad (TAA) or a player being played out of his favoured position (Gomez) being played there, tht is surely the evidence he's out FO favour and just not good enough.? He gcouldbt get a game for Burnley.

Agree0 Disagree1

16 Sep 2017 10:22:10
I have a feeling both Salah and Firmino might be rested for sturridge and the ox with Coutinho coming in for Mane. Hope I'm wrong as I have both Firmino and Salah in my dream team haha.

Agree0 Disagree2

{Ed001's Note - isn't dream team a S*n thing?}

16 Sep 2017 17:11:38
Hailstones, how did the ball get to him right in front of his goal?
Can/ Henderson/ Wijnaldum?
Where were they for that goal.
Did you criticise Gomez for not stopping the cross? Matip for being sucked into a midfield position for the umpteenth time?
Moreno for not anticipating the ball falling to the only attacker near the goal?
No you blame Lovren because you have tunnel vision and I'd suggest little understanding of football, team set ups, defensive discipline, positional sense, reading of the game and all the other good stuff.
If all you saw was Lovren's air kick, you don't really understand football mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Sep 2017 12:30:26
Heard Ings picked up an injury anyone know if it's serious hope it's not knee related 😔.

Agree2 Disagree2

11 Sep 2017 12:58:13
Precautionary I believe.

If you get the chance to look at the highlights on LFC TV, take a look at Yan Dhandas curl on that free kick that was just saved. wow. Nice goal from free play too, looking very useful and we have a lot of talent in young attacking players at the moment with him, Woodburn, Ojo, Wilson, Brewster etc.

Also think Matty Virtue is a name we could hearing more of before too long. He's playing great football in a box to box role, might be due a shot in cup game alongside Grujic.

Agree12 Disagree0

11 Sep 2017 17:39:57
Eds wat do u think we could have a potential replacement for emre can in grujic big unit of a lad with engine good passing good heading eye for goal maybe could work on tackling, hope he gets more minutes looks useful.

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed025's Note - keita will be the replacement for can hailstones and let me tell you he is a massive upgrade, grujic is half decent but for me will have to improve a lot to make the step up, im not saying he cant but it would be a lot of pressure on the lad and for me a couple of cup games would be the order of the day for me mate..

12 Sep 2017 07:31:20
Are we talking city can or arsenal can? Because he was sublime against arsenal. I feel if he could hold that form he would be giving klopp a wonderfully hard decision come next season (if he stays)

Agree0 Disagree5

12 Sep 2017 16:04:33
I think we're talking about Emre Can, aoe.

Agree6 Disagree3

12 Sep 2017 18:39:28
Touché mk. We're also talking about poor old Danny as well. Hope it doesn't knock him back too much.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Sep 2017 05:09:41
Just saw footage of Ings training with the first team yesterday. Injury can't have been too bad then.

Agree2 Disagree0

13 Sep 2017 17:21:51
you watch a lot of RBL ed025? I can't personally say I've seen much of Keita but I'm buzzing that we've signed him. Is he that good?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - well i think he is Tj, i think you have got a cracker there and for me hes a cross between kante and iniesta, very intense and gets up and down the pitch all game but not only is he defensively sound he can link with the midfield and forwards and will score goals, i have to admit im very envious mate..

13 Sep 2017 18:35:49
Yeah Keita is already a worldy, IMO. Every time I've had a chance to watch he has looked like the best player on the pitch (a trait Mane shares high kicks notwithstanding) . Would prefer to see Can stay also but I have always thought Keita is his direct replacement. Hopefully Emre has a great season either way.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - hes a top top player amerigo..

14 Sep 2017 05:14:24
He looks effortless when running with the ball. Has a good work ethic and looks like he has a competitive streak. Gets the ball and immediately tries to promote it forward. One caveat, he does seem to try and pull off the miracle pass a bit too often in my opinion - sometimes at the expense of a sideways pass which would be the smarter option.

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Sep 2017 08:28:54
Tell ya wat ed 025 we needed him yesterday hendo is shot wid all the injuries, can looks like he had too many pies, gini good at home but goes missin away, is there any chance he can come in january heard there was, still tryin too get me ead round our signings in window, No defence!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - he will stay at RBL for the season i expect hailstones..

09 Sep 2017 20:28:30
Just something small of interest. My brother in law was sitting beside Didi Hamann on a flight from Dublin last week (he regularly does TV work here) . He said he was sound out; talked most of the way. The most notable thing he said was that he reckoned that Can will stay; says he's very settled in Liverpool and v happy at the Club; just wants to know his role which is standard enough given his age and Keita arriving next year. Didi reckons the midfield will be Can, Keita and Henderson if all are fit next season.

When Didi wasn't talking apparently he was on his phone going through every bookie app ever created 😁.

Agree26 Disagree5

09 Sep 2017 22:40:10
That was a wasted opportunity. If I'd been there I'd have offered the Kaiser 200 euro to punch Eamon Dunphy on live television.

Agree16 Disagree4

09 Sep 2017 23:38:26
Sorry Instanbul but wanting Can to stay is so last week. Hadn't you heard this week he's rubbish and has no creativity so he can go to Turin with our blessing. It could change again after Wednesday night so I'll keep you posted mate 👍.

Agree33 Disagree5

10 Sep 2017 03:54:53
Itll change again Wednesday.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Sep 2017 04:17:31
You get better odds if you're 10,000 ft up in the air supposedly.

Agree4 Disagree0

10 Sep 2017 08:32:05
Klopp doesn't seem to know what his strongest line up at the moment is. Yet he's somehow told Didi who his midfield 3 is going to be next season 🤔.

Agree5 Disagree19

10 Sep 2017 10:44:02
Dunphy would batter him. He's box office baby!

Agree4 Disagree1

10 Sep 2017 15:22:52
Dumpy has been there as long as I remember,

He said one year and I quote;

"Technically, Maradonna is not a good footballer, "

He fit in perfect here as an Ed,

Agree4 Disagree2

10 Sep 2017 17:03:46
Dunphy is apparently one of us. As is Alan Greene. We're an opinionated bunch aren't we?

Agree3 Disagree0

10 Sep 2017 21:27:36
Jayden23 : that's the kind of rubbish comment that stops people posting and sharing information here. That's what happened; that's what Didi said; if you think he's full of rubbish that's one thing, but stating something that was said wasn't because it doesn't sit right with you just shows up your ignorance not anyone else's.

Agree8 Disagree0

11 Sep 2017 07:44:43
Ok Istanbul everyone is entitled to comment. I just find it strange that Didi is telling a total stranger Klopps plans for next season.

Agree2 Disagree4

11 Sep 2017 10:08:59
Jayden - he's not telling anyone Klopps plans for next year, he was telling what he thinks will happen as an experienced player with close ties to the club. Exact quote:

'Didi rekons the midfield. '

No mention of a chat with Klopp! Or are you one of those people who refuses to predict anything in the world no matter what they know about a subject through paralysing fear of making a mistake?

Agree6 Disagree0

11 Sep 2017 11:18:30
Hjikle are we no longer allowed to question each other on here or do we have to take everything as gospel. I've not insulted the bloke or had a go at him. I've clearly put an argument in opposition to the initial post. However your point is very good and on re reading the op it has put my argument to bed and it is just Didi's opinion. I have clearly jumped the gun. Football is all about debate and different view points. And the fact that Istanbul is saying that its going to stop people posting (because someone has disagreed) is a little bit school yard.

Agree2 Disagree1

11 Sep 2017 11:20:57
Just don't see the point in 3 midfield in a straight line.

Play two or one deeper and the other one or two closer to firmino.

Cans best games have come from the dele position. Pers9nally I think he's bollocks at cdm or even box to box but I was so impressed with him at number ten.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Sep 2017 12:38:55
We definitely need a CDM.

Agree2 Disagree0

11 Sep 2017 16:03:30
Ron - I think if you back Klopp as a manager you must accept that we will not be getting a CDM now or any time soon. The likes of Keita and Hendo (people who take intelligent positions and know their way around a tackle) are as close as we will get.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Sep 2017 20:21:28
I believe Klopp will adapt his system 🤝.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Sep 2017 06:31:25
Ron I agree that the system will adapt but a large part of that will be because Keita is different to Can (for example) . Hendo already tends to be the base of the triangle - a big problem is that when he presses high, he isn't being covered by his team mates and so a gap opens up.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Sep 2017 10:24:02
"Technically Maradona is not a good footballer"
Anyone who says that clearly has no idea about football whatsoever! Sorry I know the reply is a bit late but when I read that I almost fell over!

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Sep 2017 16:05:25
Nowadays Maradonna isn't a good footballer. So where's the problem with that statement?

Agree2 Disagree0

13 Sep 2017 22:51:44
Didi was on RTE doing our game tonight, predicted 2-2. You should've gotten some tips from him when he was going through all those betting apps on his phone.

Unfortunately, he didn't punch Eamon Dunphy.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Sep 2017 18:54:27
Technically Maradona wasn't a good footballer, he was a great footballer.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Sep 2017 10:29:31
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.

Agree5 Disagree2

{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?}

08 Sep 2017 10:40:44
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!

Agree2 Disagree1

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

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.

Agree3 Disagree3

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.

Agree8 Disagree0

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

Agree7 Disagree9

08 Sep 2017 14:04:22
Thanks Ed02.

Agree1 Disagree1

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

Agree2 Disagree1

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

Agree13 Disagree1

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?

Agree0 Disagree0

{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.}

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.

Agree1 Disagree1

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

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Sessegnon.}

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?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Done to death.}

07 Sep 2017 16:15:37
How's this for a conspiracy theory, a factor in deciding to keep Moreno was to ensure Coutinho had a close friend in the squad.

Agree3 Disagree31

07 Sep 2017 17:50:33
Moreno is klopps long lost lovechild only way to explain it.

Agree6 Disagree11

07 Sep 2017 19:00:20
And Roberto Firmino isn't a close friend of Coutinho?

Agree18 Disagree2

07 Sep 2017 19:54:02
Except that Klopp wanted rid of coutinho at the end.

Agree5 Disagree3

07 Sep 2017 19:59:49
you'd think he would've kept lucas for that.

Agree7 Disagree1

07 Sep 2017 20:10:25
Reid, just because they're both Brazilian doesn't make them best mates.

Agree6 Disagree10

07 Sep 2017 20:15:50
He definitely is closer too moreno, moreno has a good character round the dressing room I hope he can somehow come good.

Agree9 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - and i want everton to win the CL hailstones...same chance..

07 Sep 2017 20:21:34
Or that Moreno has improved?

Agree9 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - silk purses and sows ears and all that..

07 Sep 2017 20:32:58
See his face from the bench.

Agree3 Disagree0

07 Sep 2017 20:45:48
Moreno hasn't improved imo, he's been just as bad this season. I do however know from someone who works for the club that he's a top bloke.

Agree0 Disagree13

{Ed025's Note - aah thats nice cobra..

07 Sep 2017 21:03:15
Ed25 seems like a nice bloke but then you remember he's a biter!

Agree8 Disagree0

07 Sep 2017 22:06:29
Klopp said through out last season that the best in training in terms of attitude and commitment, is Moreno.

Agree7 Disagree0

07 Sep 2017 23:08:39
Is pipco back in training?

Agree3 Disagree1

07 Sep 2017 23:25:24
Big season ahead for Moreno. From what I saw, it was his pre season appearaces that kept him at the club,
He's another year older now and hopefully not as wrash in his decision making,

FB must be the hardest position on the pitch to play, you really need eyes in the back of your head.

Agree9 Disagree0

08 Sep 2017 00:34:39
Yes and we kept Bogdan whom is a close friend of markovic whom is a close friend of Moreno whom of co as you said is a close friend of Coutinho.

Agree2 Disagree2

08 Sep 2017 00:03:44
Proper neg ead u ed 025 he can improve can't he, also he has shown in the past he has had good games he has room too improve young lad comin too different league, he could b adapting, jus needs too find consistency.

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed025's Note - im a realist hailstones, he has been at the club for 3 years now so how long do you want to wait for him to improve?...just admit hes a lemon like karius, thats the problem with liverpool supporters they cant admit that some of their players are sub standard mate..

08 Sep 2017 06:53:30
Moreno is average going forward and when he gets beaten in defence and has to chase back he is a liability. Can't tackle and is so rash when chasing back that he gives free kicks away in dangerous areas and penalties.

Who cares if he is a nice guy.
Hate player bashing but he has a long way to go to win the fans over.

Agree4 Disagree3

08 Sep 2017 08:53:36
Ed25, us LFC fans use to get a lot of stick for not "getting behind" players or "slagging them off" and now your saying we can't admit sub standard?
Everton fans are so delirious its quite scary. 😂🙈.

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - encouragement is fine kopette, but lets not pretend that all reds players are world beaters thats all, some of them are of course (mane,couts) but there is also a lot of dross in there as well, lets just be honest mate..

08 Sep 2017 09:52:57
Were not sayin that ed 025, we sayin the lad is learning his trade he young look at david luiz no one would say he could improve look at salah also victor moses, if this season he constantly makin mistakes ok we hold our hands up, but if he shows improvement give the lad a chance, I think he can offer something an he has quality.

Agree4 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - we are all entitled to our opinions hailstones, the fact that you dont recognise a nugget when you see one still perplexes me though mate..

08 Sep 2017 10:15:35
Beddoerocks, you say Moreno can't tackle but I was reading an article yesterday that stated he is our leading tackler this season with 9, Matip is second on 8.

Agree4 Disagree0

08 Sep 2017 11:09:41
Ed025, how can you call Karius a lemon? Lads only played a few games for us and he's young.

Certiainly not going to praise him yet as tour next great no 1 but don't you think it's fair to wait and see how he turns out before passing judgement? Looking through the those toffee spectacles again?!

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - i have this philosophy you see hamish...if a guy knocks at my door wearing a green curly wig, bulbous red nose, yellow check suit and size 27 boots then i think to myself...this guys a clown, i dont need to interview him mate, i can tell straight away..

08 Sep 2017 12:07:48
Hahaha ok ed 025, I just like too see my glass is half full than half empty he has put in good performances an shown too b a decent left back admittedly in beginning of his liverpool career but why can't he improve mate he has time on his side, I was his biggest doubter last 2 seasons I know why u say wat u do, but this a make or break season for him, he is showin signs of getting better so I have too get behind him.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - and thats ok by me hailstones...hows the weather today in cloud cuckoo land mate.. :)

08 Sep 2017 12:09:18
Moreno isn't a nugget he a professional footballer getting paid handsomely.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - in our local Mcdonalds they now sell chicken you could be wrong mate..

08 Sep 2017 13:09:55
Hahaha I am more into subway.

Agree3 Disagree0

08 Sep 2017 12:50:51
Ed025, really? Come on mate you are being a little bit over the top. Moreno and Karius are both young and moved from different leagues.

Did you assume that De Gea was a lemon when he first joined United? With his comedy goal keeping and his lack of any physicality? His first season was an absolute disaster and now look at him, he's arguably one of the top 5 in the world as a keeper.

I'm not for one moment saying that Karius will get this good, I'm just saying his situation is comparable to De Gea, although I think De Gea actually had a worse first season than Karius, so we should give him a chance.

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - im all for giving him a chance hsf, but he has yet to prove he is anything more than a liability so at the moment he is certainly a lemon, will he improve..possibly but until he does i think its fair to assume he is not up to the job, moreno has had 3 years and if he has not made the transition by now then we can reasonable assume hes a dud, its not all his fault though as it seems the coaching defensively at least is certainly lacking at liverpool mate..

09 Sep 2017 08:00:33
How anyone can say that Moreno hasn't had enough time to prove himself is beyond me! 1 good pre season game and everyone thinks he's Ashley Cole. He has proven time and time again he doesn't have the aptitude for being a left back and he's done nothing this season to prove me otherwise.
Training hard, having the right attitude and being a top bloke should not be enough to keep you in a team wanting to win honours.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - im with you cobra..

10 Sep 2017 20:02:35
Tizer I am not making my comment based on 2 or 3 games.

Moreno is not a good defender when turned. Season after season we have seen that. By all means throw stats around 93% of people know stats can used to prove a incorrect opinion 😁.

We need a stable back 4. Chopping and changing is not ideal. We should try and develop a steady first back 4 to enable an understanding to develop. Stick Robertson in the LB slot TAA in RB slot and settle on a first choice CB pairing (Loren and Matip for me)

Klopp needs to commit as we have the players but they rarely ever play more than one game together.

If klopp rates Moreno then fine. But stand by the decision and give him a run in the team with a steady defensive line that can cover his shortcomings.

Hi eds, I been watching Carassco play. And I feel he is absolutely the sort of striker Klopp like for pressing system. Carassco works hard and dribbles very well and scores . Any chance?

More than Carrasco from atlético we should go for Oblak. He said it will be his last year there!

Agree2 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has shown no interest in either.}

07 Sep 2017 19:21:56
Bcoz we want only Southampton players and no one else. Though the jesey is similar with athletico

At this rate we will be their 2nd team.

I love Carrasco and think he would be perfect for our system as he is lethal from either of the wide areas, were we ever need to replace Mane or Salah.

Hi Eds, I read that Can is waiting for Liverpool to agree a release clause or similar before he will commit to a new contract.

Ed2 has suggested that they have no legal basis in the UK. I am no expert, could you please explain whether Can is looking for this and if so, why that may be, if they have no basis in the UK?

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I have not heard anything about him wishing for a release clause sorry.}

06 Sep 2017 13:23:48
Do you know why Can has not signed a new contract Ed001?
And, in your opinion, do you think he will sign or will he leave for nothing at the end of the season.

Y. N. W. A.

He's lost his pen vcromp. Club won't supply a new one and have told him it will come out of Clyne's wages if they have to. Clyne was angry at being dragged into it and retaliated by stabbing Klopp in the thigh with a fountain pen. Klopp lost his cool. Took off his hipster glass and smashed Clyne through the treatment table with a Batista bomb.

Whole situation is messy. Clyne is in a coma, Can still doesn't have a pen, and Klopp is being investigated by the WWE for a dangerous unscripted move.

James Milner, witness to the whole thing, has been quoted as saying "i have a pen he can borrow"

You are in desperate need of some holidays. Preferably where there is only seas, sun and sand, with no humans around. And plenty of time to reflect on what other interests to pursue aside from football in your free time, because football is bringing out the violent side in you.

VR he's worried about playing time. He sees Keita has just been signed and he'd be an immediate starter for Juventus. I like the lad a lot, but I think he would be even better in the black and white stripes. I want him to stay however.

06 Sep 2017 16:19:02
He hasn't signed as non of the incompetants in the lfc player contracts dept has asked him yet.

If you can't get in liverpools team why would you get in juventus.

{Ed001's Note - because they have told him he will.}

06 Sep 2017 17:28:11
Just give him the 100 grand a week and a fair release clause and be done with it. Cheaper than buying a replacement and he is going to just keep getting better.

Agree2 Disagree2

{Ed002's Note - I have not said that they have no legal basis in the UK. You all need to forget about clauses.}

06 Sep 2017 18:20:03
Accept that he's going. If he was going to stay he would of signed by now. He knows he's not going to be 1st choice next year that's y he's off end of.

I don't see how any teams can guarantee playing time. If you are looking poor in training you won't be risked in anything other than minor cup games or occasional sub.

Agree4 Disagree0

07 Sep 2017 00:03:35
This whole game time thing winds me up. If you want to play then work your nuts off, improve enough so you can't be dropped. That's the only way. If you're going to whinge about not playing instead of knuckling down and working on your game then you can do one as far as I'm concerned.

Was it just a pen, or an apple-pen?

Cant they give him say £2m lump sum to sign new contract. Then sell for £40m. Rather than squabble and lose him for free or £20m in jan.

Something is very very wrong if we can't give our best midfielder the same guarantees as Juventus.

Haizan, unsubstantiated reports this morning are suggesting the the fountain pen removed from Jurgen's thigh has the words "From Brazil with love" inscribed down the side.

Coutinho has denied any involvement but there was a bank transfer of £7.56 between himself and Clyne just 2 days ago.

The plot thickens.

Agree4 Disagree2

07 Sep 2017 08:05:10
i think you may have missed what Haizan was trying to say ed001.

i believe he was referring to a viral video named Pen Pineapple Apple Pen.

i may be wrong, bt u didn't hear this from me. its a horrible video. don't watch it. just dont.

Any team can promise a player game time doesn't mean to say he will get it once he signs a 5 year deal. and i had to laugh when someone said our Best midfielder i have said it a few times he isn't fit to wear the shirt he has had a handful of good games since he got here. let him go in January, but of course he can talk to any foreign clubs in Jan and sign a pre contract agreement to sign in the summer. players come and go but the team is the most important. YNWA.

Hope he stays, if even for the future transition of hendo, lallana and Milner. Hope he is looking at that and seeing he, along with keita are the very near future engine room for liverpool.

Jack Bezants from Mailonline (Don't shoot me) insists the issue with Can's contract is a release clause.

It could be that he wants a release clause, in case he does not get the game time he desires - giving him a way out.

Agree2 Disagree0

07 Sep 2017 12:47:43
Even if the club agree to a clause something i can't see them being against as it would mean they would recieve a fee when he moves on there will be a multitude of excuses for not signing. can has had no intention of signing for a long time. complete stupidity by lfc lettin it get this far. edwards is world class according to werner.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Sep 2017 16:14:57
I think we've misinterpreted why MK mentioned the pen.

It was "iron" -it was firm, it was mineral. No, no, no, that's stupid. It was. It was firm, it was adamant, it was resolved.

It was resolved.

Jurgen Klopp used the Pen to sign the Declaration of Independence :o.

08 Sep 2017 06:34:06
I players wanting assurances that they are being signed as a starting player, to be played in their regular position and no plans to sign other starting players in same role; is being confused with a player expecting to play regardless. I don't think even footballers think they will play every game regardless, (with some very few exceptions) and I would expect they understand the flip side of that would be the manager would be able to say they have to play even when they don't want to. It is not so different to any of us going for a job where they give a range of roles and we want to understand what the split of our time is likely to be. You don't sign to be benching or out of position and back up if you want to be playing regularly. Can as the Eds have said sees that as what he'd be signing up to at LFC.

Fenerbahce have made an offer for Lazar Markovic on a one-year loan according to the Turkish media reports.

With no takers on a permanent move I think they'll have to bite the bullet on this one Ed002 mate.

{Ed002's Note - Right.}

Is the transfer window still open for Turkish clubs?

{Ed002's Note - Yes - until the 8th I think.}

03 Sep 2017 22:34:08
Agree with Ed on this one. Just get what we can. I wish he would have worked out here but wish him all of the best.

Agree14 Disagree0

03 Sep 2017 22:45:53
I would personally like to see him get another chance. I don't think he did that bad for us when he did play. I know he didn't do so well on loan, but sometimes being surrounded by better players can bring the best out of someone. Wijnaldum didn't exactly shine at Newcastle did he.

Agree19 Disagree19

Winjaldum did shine at Newcastle, he was there best player.

04 Sep 2017 01:45:50
I liked him when he first started. Showed glimpses of his potential, but Markovic looks like he isn't enjoying his footy with us. Id let him go so he can try to get his career back on track with someone else.

Agree11 Disagree0

04 Sep 2017 08:27:26
I agree with Phil. Besides getting the impression that he's not enjoying his time with us, I also get the feeling that he is not driven enough to fight for a place in our team. I watched him closely during our preseason games and he just didn't put in a shift - the one which would show his intention of pushing for a place in the team. Also, from what little I have seen of him, he seems to lack the work ethic that Klopp expects from his first team players, especially the 11 that are on the field. The lad deserves a chance to play elsewhere and in my opinion it would suit everyone if he moves on permanently.

Agree4 Disagree0

04 Sep 2017 12:00:27
Markovic was an expensive mistake and we should just bite the bullet and move on. Kent, Ojo, Woodburn, Wilson etc are all better than him.

Agree8 Disagree5

04 Sep 2017 12:40:42
he was a victim of Rodgers's wild spending spree, best for him to move on.

My Geordie mates reckon they're well rid of gini. I'd say he's been pretty good for us tbf but they all slate him for going missing or not putting effort in.

04 Sep 2017 18:16:48
LucasLeiva-Wini wasn't Newcastles best player, he was dropped to the bench a fair bit towards the end of the season.

Agree2 Disagree0

04 Sep 2017 18:36:01
Wijnaldum reminds me of when jonny barnes played in midfield they have similar technique strong on the ball skilful eye for a pass, he just needs a goal away from home, all in all he's been great for us he had more assists than coutihno last season.

Agree5 Disagree5

05 Sep 2017 14:08:52
Markovic had potential but was mishandled IMO and it's set back his career. Admittedly he perhaps also could have picked himself up and tried again, but it's clear now he isn't inspired to play his best for us and needs a move. Hope he gets it and goes on to a good career.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Sep 2017 16:44:32
Wijnaldum is one of my favorite players in our side. Keita's signing could push him down the pecking order a bit but he's been well worth his salary and what it cost to sign him. He definitely was Newcastle's best player and any Geordie fan giving him a hard time was just aggrieved that they went down for a season unexpectedly.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Sep 2017 19:17:10
I'm with the biting of said bullet.

Hi eds i've read on a few pages that Lemar still wants to join us (I take what they say with a pinch of salt as they are very rarely correct with their info) I was just wondering if it is planned for us to renew our interest in either January or next summer or is it to early to say? Also in your opinion do you think we still need to add him to our squad after adding Chamberlain and the arrival of Keita next summer? Thanks in advance.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - too early to say what will happen in January or next summer but we only really need him to replace Coutinho.}

03 Sep 2017 20:00:02
Thanks for the reply ed001 I'm guessing it all depends on Coutinhos attitude when he comes back and whether he knuckles down and plays his heart out or if he kicks up a fuss about not being able to move to Barca.

Agree3 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - a lot does certainly.}
