After the club rejected this latest offer from Barcelona, and after Phillipe and his agent have courted them for a year, have we come to the point where PC is going to have to hand in a transfer request to get it done? It would appear to me that's where it may be headed.


1.) 10 Aug 2017 12:06:11
The figures are getting ridiculous. To put this into context the main stand and surrounding stadium work £115m the price to develop anfield road £60-£70m. Given our well reported financial problems on here, what is best? If keita was to come then the plan would have been to sell PC, do the sums, with Salah mana and bobby it's to attacking. a more combative middle with bobby behind sturridge or solanke makes more sense.

2.) 10 Aug 2017 12:21:58
I don't think we must sell to buy right now. Our expenditure on transfers has been good the last two years.

Added with the fact that we finished higher in the league this year, enabling us to get more competition money, as well that we will earn more by being in the champions league. And not to mention the premier league TV deal.

Through all these factors I think we are able to buy VVD and Keita without selling Pipco. We just need to lower expectations for Sakho, Markovic, Moreno and anyone else who we are intending to sell.

3.) 10 Aug 2017 12:42:02
Getting Mo Salah, Solanke and Andy Robertson for around £50 million is excellent business. If we can sell Sakho and Markovic for say £35million even better.
Hopefully there'll be plenty left in the pot for Keita and Van Dijk . 😀.

4.) 10 Aug 2017 13:43:31
Even in this inflated market there is absolutely no way that we will get anything close to 35 million for Sakho and Markovic.

5.) 10 Aug 2017 14:25:49
I don't think 20 for Sakho and 10 for Marko is that crazy?

In fact I think if we had been more reasonable with Stoke we may have got something around that for Sakho.

Perhaps a loan to buy is the best we can hope for now.

6.) 10 Aug 2017 14:36:52
I doubt he will hand in a TR. He is too good and loyal. It's shame we never won anything with him and this piss poor defense means we won't anything!

7.) 10 Aug 2017 18:49:29
"Well reported financial problems"? Crap you make up in your head is not the definition of well reported. The club has no financial problems.



11 Jan 2016 10:44:54
Hi Eds, I know you guy's dealt with the Pato stuff last week, but a lot of people today on the official LFC forums are talking about a done deal for Pato. Has there been a change to what you guys said last week? Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any "done deal" but if the official club forum has announced it is then the club would not say that unless the player had obtained a work permit after passing his medical and agreeing personal terms and the club had agreed and paid the fee to Corinthians and the fee to the third party owners and the six representatives who need paying off.}

1.) 11 Jan 2016 11:11:45
Sorry Ed, I didn't word that correctly, I should have written that fans are talking about it on the forums, there isn't an official announcement from the club. But as for your response I understand what you mean.

2.) 11 Jan 2016 13:08:43
Hey bris, just posted on rumours but a few days ago it was on fox sports and Aus ESPN, it's now on BBC and a few other LFC and media sites. Done deal for 11 million Pound.

{Ed002's Note - There you go, apparently (according to the poster) Liverpool and the BBC say it is a "done deal".}

3.) 11 Jan 2016 13:17:10
I'm hoping it's not true, and honestly believed that when it was reported in the Aus media on Saturday, really worried now that it's being reported elsewhere, BBC alerts are generally spot on with there info but I'm praying this is one of the ones they are getting wrong.

4.) 11 Jan 2016 14:09:24
The BBC are NOT reporting it. It is just in their Monday Gossip section where they reference the Star.
If there is any truth to it I really hope it's a loan and not 11 million as suggested. We don't need another big Balotelli ballsup.

5.) 11 Jan 2016 15:11:59
"My private advice to you is don't follow the Pato path any longer. "

Thanks Jurgen. Moving on.

{Ed002's Note - Maybe the club have not told Klipperty it is a "done deal"?}

6.) 11 Jan 2016 18:23:30
Maybe jurgen can't pronounce the word patio?

7.) 12 Jan 2016 08:57:25
Pato means duck in Spanish, maybe he was just telling the journos not to go down the path with ducks on it.

16 Jun 2018 06:56:59
Can someone please explain to me how De Gea's howler suddenly turned into open season and slating on Karius again? Some of the stuff I have read over the last few pages is nothing short of embarrassing. I fully understand Ed002's low opinion on the type of fans many Liverpool supporters seem to be.


1.) 16 Jun 2018 08:25:45
Agreed Brisbane it's getting daft, again. All I'm going to say is, Karius IN! . If he's going to be our number 1 next season which I fully expect, he needs our support. He gets mine, good luck to the lad.

2.) 16 Jun 2018 08:38:35
Agreed salah! As I keep saying, if he works hard on his concentration and distribution we could have a top keeper in karius.

3.) 16 Jun 2018 08:53:24
As one who had fun with DDG making two mistakes (he was partly to blame for that free kick as his wall placement and positioning that cost Spain the points, what I for me, was saying was that the "experts" on these boards have a knack of making such sweeping, illogical statements like "DDG would never have made the mistakes Karius made vs RM' or "A top class GK does not make those Karius mistakes in a big game". That was royally debunked last night and the "experts" can't deal with this "stunning" realization so what did they do? They deflect. "So are you saying Karius is better than DDG" or "If you think Karius is good enough then you are dreaming", blah, blah, blah as if hat is the point of the debate which it is not and never was. Hence, the Karius bashing. The fact of the matter that they can't come to terms with is that Show me a GK who has never made a mistake and I will show you one who has never played a game in his life. DDG is prone to mistakes just like Karius is, FACT.

4.) 16 Jun 2018 09:04:15
Bang right salah at end of day we are supporters and that's what we need to do support our players instead of critizing and putting them down.
One thing is for sure if he is still our number1 next season and the games I go to I will certainly be singing his name and will give him and klopp 100% backing.

5.) 16 Jun 2018 10:31:32
The thing is De Gea has earnt the right to make a mistake after years of being the best keeper in the prem. Karius has looked ropey throughout his Liverpool career and made 2 huge mistakes not 1.
I didn’t want Karius is goal next season prior to the final, like a lot of fans, the final just verified my thoughts. Pro Karius fans seem to be putting them both at the same level after yesterday which is ludicrous, Have you ever watched a game and thought without Karius we wouldn’t have got a result? I can’t off the top of my head, Utd fans regularally feel this with DDG.
I’m not trying to slag Karius off I’m just reacting to fans who now think Karius is now an adequate keeper because DDG made a mistake.

6.) 16 Jun 2018 11:02:26
Completely agree Cobra666 exactly what I was trying to say last night on here. I will support Karius if Klopp decides to keep him as I am not a fickle fan and would love a success story but would rather Klopp pushed for a solid keeper. This reacting to DDG mistake or mistakes he made last night is slightly embarrassing as DDG has for many years been the best keeper in the league, arguably best keeper in the world and is human and entitled to the odd mistake here and there, that is why I never judge Karius on just the Champions League final but on how he has been since he joined.

7.) 16 Jun 2018 11:14:50
I think some people on this forum like to hold onto any glimmer of hope they have that Karius is "the one" so they try to make something out of another keepers error who has been by far the best PL keeper in years. Cobra666 first comments are correct for me.

8.) 16 Jun 2018 12:31:10
Irish Rover and Gobra666, I am not saying any of that and again, both of you fail to address the salient point being made here so again, you are deflecting. Someone said DDG has earned the right to make the mistakes he made. And how long did it take him to be great? Was it over 50 games like Karius or over 200 plus during which FErgie was so lost that the senior players had to be consulted on what to do with DDG (Source: Rio Ferdinand)? Either way, that is not the point here.

News flash: He STILL made mistakes that cost Spain, end of story. This convo was for those who kept spouting that nonsense that (A GK can never make mistakes". Moral of the story? EVERY GK makes mistakes. DDG's mistakes debunked That is what is being addressed here, and not the non-argument of "So Karius is now better than DDG" or "Some are still hoping for him to be the one. Those are conversations no one is having but you. I for one, am not saying that neither am I bothered as that is for Klopp to decide.

9.) 16 Jun 2018 14:18:51
BRover, what you're not recognising is that some mistakes are more serious and can have career-changing consequences.
Mention Peter Bonetti to any England fan and there will probably be a little sigh before mentioning the World Cup 1970.
It was also his last ever England cap.
He was a very good keeper, and played on for his club sides for years afterwards but never got another international appearance.

If Karius drops a few bloopers, particularly if they cost Liverpool points, he's going to be hard-pressed to recover.
How can you have Salah at one end, and a problem at the other?

10.) 17 Jun 2018 15:30:36
Don't care who played what and when. Karius isn't good enough and there will be a media circus surrounding him next season with everyone waiting for his next mistake, it's unfair on the lad, and he'll totally damage his carrer if he stays with us, how can someone develop under that much scrutiny and pressure. Thank him for trying but for us and himself he needs to rebuild his carrer elsewhere. Oh and hendos brother, were not supporters were customers.

11.) 17 Jun 2018 15:35:27
I don’t think anyone is slating Karius, it’s called an open discussion, the summer is the time to discuss these things. If Karius is our number 1 when the season starts I will support him but until that time I will continue to advocate for a new goalkeeper.



27 May 2018 07:23:40
I have to say that I am embarrassed and disgusted at the vile abuse and bile being directed to Karius from so called Liverpool supporters. The death threats towards him and the wishes from supporters that his children get cancer are appalling and beyond words. So much for You'll Never Walk Alone. I am embarrassed that some of our supporters think like this.


1.) 27 May 2018 07:43:28
Even supermodels have toejam, Brisbane mate.

2.) 27 May 2018 09:10:54
Your one of the good guys BrisbaneLFC, nice one mate. Completely agree.



02 Feb 2016 13:12:04
Ed's, what role would Jurgen Klopp have in the money a transfer would cost for a player he may want. Using Teixeira as an example, would he say something like, I like this player, would like him to come here but don't pay anymore than 30 mil for him because he isn't worth more than that. Or is it more the case he says I like the player and its up to Ayre or whomever to deal with the transfer fees etc? Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - No, Klopp would not be assigning values to players. He may be part of a discussion on how much the club bid but that is all.}

1.) 02 Feb 2016 14:38:53
Shock, horror Ed2, are you saying that it wasn't Rogers fault that Lfc paid too much for the likes of Baloteli, Firminio Allen etc etc, if he had no say in how much to bid.

{Ed002's Note - The money is not, and never has been, the responsibility of the manager.}

2.) 02 Feb 2016 15:25:41
He`s already said we will not spend money we don`t have nor for the sake of it. That`s his input right there.



31 Jan 2016 09:06:49
What are your thoughts in regards to Ward Ed, seems a little baffling to bring him back from what was a reportedly successful loan stint, when we are even yet to see him play. It seems very strange and seems to point to our continued misuse of our younger players, it seems as he would have been better off staying at Aberdeen, at least he would have been playing week in, week out. Maybe I am jumping the gun a little, and there is a plan for him to play in some coming games or the EL. Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - The fans have massively over-reacted to his return. They see secret messages in everything that happens. Nothing more.}

1.) 31 Jan 2016 09:34:46
Hi Brisbane,

I'm very surprised by this too but can only imagine klopp trusts bogdan that little that he wants to have ward waiting in the wings and Jan would have been the only time Aberdeen would have let him go mid season?

2.) 31 Jan 2016 09:38:05
Every team had a reserve keeper on the bench. Clearly Bogdan wasnt good enough so we bring Ward back in.

He's been playing well so that seems very logical.

Why is that misuse of a player?

Hes contracted to Liverpool, just had some experience at Aberdeen and done well so has now forced his way up the pecking order.

3.) 31 Jan 2016 09:56:40
Sorry Ed, I'm not really sure what you mean by secret messages and massive over reactions. I was ask for your thoughts on whether it may have been better to stay on loan where he was playing, than sitting on the bench not playing is all.

{Ed002's Note - You asked for my thoughts in regards to Ward. My thoughts are based on the surprise given to me by the collective orgasm of the Liverpool fans when this reserve player was taken back from having played a few games in Scotland. Since then I have seen hundreds of posts proposing Ward as the savior of the season - and there is zero basis for such weird thoughts by the fan base. He is simply another kid that the manager has decided to end the loan of in order to provide a vastly bloated squad and an increased wage bill. He has gone from getting good and useful experience to hanging out in Liverpool. Makes some sense if Bogdan were to be released from his contract tomorrow or Liverpool find somewhere that he is happy to go on loan to. But that is not why Ward's loan was ended early.}

4.) 31 Jan 2016 10:45:01
Everyone was raving about Llori as the saviour to Liverpool defensive woes, until he was given his chance and struggled to run after ten minutes.

Not everything is a solution.

5.) 31 Jan 2016 13:17:42
Difference is Davey, Ward was playing well, albeit in the Scottish leagues, whereas Ilori wasn't even playing, so not getting match fitness! Why bring Ward back to have him sit on the bench, especially for an FA Cup match where there were other youngsters playing? I appreciate he'll be understudy to Mignolet in PL and EL matches, but why bring him back for bench work in FA Cup matches, when he could have had much more in Scotland with Aberdeen and so gain much needed experience? I know the answer in a way and that will be if Mignolet gets a bad injury on Feb 5th, he'll be around to step in rather than the other option of Bogdan! Trouble is, Bogdan was at least getting a few games, even if played badly in!



18 Jan 2016 06:51:20
Ed001/ 002,

I'm curious as to the obligations of the buying club in a loan to buy scenario as Balotelli has with AC MIlan. I think one of you mentioned that there was already an agreed fee for him attached to the loan to buy deal. I am not really sure on what obligations MIlan has in the way of sticking to the deal and buying him for the agreed amount. I assume they don't have to go through with buying him, but if they do the fee is already set in stone and its just a matter of signing off on the permanent deal. Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - It depends whether it is a loan to buy or a loan with an option to buy. In the case of Balotelli the fee is fixed for Milan if the decide to buy.}

I would have thought signing Shaqiri would have put an end to that, in the same way it lessened any opportunity for Wilson this coming season.

How will alisson feel about being third choice? I mean, klopp has apparently told ward he is in the battle for number one with karius. Or is klopp selling more falsehoods?

Carra, Silly move. As is buying Shaqiri to ride the pine. Wilson should be the one coming off the bench, not being sent to Stoke.

The treatment this guy has received from a section of Liverpool supporters, and the treatment he continues to receive is nothing short of disgraceful. These people should never be allowed to utter the words "you'll never walk alone" as they simply don't know what it means. Makes me ashamed to see how some of his own clubs supporters have treated him and his family.

Indian, Why would Karius stay? Why would he want to stay after the treatment he and his family have received since May? In the event of Alisson signing I would imagine he would be on the phone with his agent going get me out of here immediately.

If Alisson comes, then the first thing Karius should do is get out away from the vitriolic hate spewing Liverpool supporters. Why would he want to stick around after what he has been subjected to by them?

Im also wondering what Danny Ward must be thinking after being seemingly lied to again by Klopp. One day he gets told he is in a challenge for number one keeper with Karius, a few days later he is making a big money, world record bid for a new keeper.

I find it an underwhelming and confusing signing TBH. I would have thought it would be a great opportunity for someone like Harry Wilson to be given an opportunity to step up into the first team then reassess in the January window, and then bring someone in if it wasn't working out. I don't get signing someone to be essentially a bench player, especially a guy with his reputation and perceived attitude issues. As you said Ed, 'sigh'.
