Please kill me now.

2.) 05 May 2017 16:18:59
Thats List really does scream quality.

3.) 05 May 2017 17:04:52
It screams more potential than quality. I'm not slaying the list but I think we need to pepper in some more title challenge ready players into the mix personally.

I like pereira (from what I've read/ heard) and I think Brandt would be great.

If Sturridge leaves (which he likely will), I'd prefer a more experienced striker than Dembele etc as I'm happy with origi as our striker with great potential, I'm pretty sure he'd tear it up in Scottish league too.

4.) 05 May 2017 17:21:01
Saw Brereton play at City Ground vs. Reading a couple of weeks back. The lad is strong, quick and has a lot of energy. For a 17 year old he's a bit of a unit too. He bullied the Reading left winger all game. He was pretty effective on right side of attack and got into the box well, had a couple of chances. Not sure he's LFC quality just yet but definitely one to look out for. Forest fans really rate him.

5.) 05 May 2017 17:45:12
Why would he bully their left winger, what did he ever do to him?

6.) 05 May 2017 17:53:21
Id rather this list say Mbappe, Asensio, giminez, cedric, gaya tbh

And that would still give us are annual saints player so the scouts are happy.

7.) 05 May 2017 19:14:30
CyKlopps! More of this please mate! for us who don't or can't listen to the pod! Thanks a million buddy! :D.

8.) 05 May 2017 20:10:06
70% of that list wouldn't get into the starting 11. Actually higher than 70%.

9.) 05 May 2017 20:04:59
Many thanks for that I've been unable to find the sharkpods I did get redirect to frankyscousers conspiracy pod which was a good listen.

{Ed033's Note - If you go to youtube a put sharkopod in the search bar, the sharkopods appear.

10.) 05 May 2017 22:55:16
Not exactly a stellar list but with the resources we have and the fact we aren't champions league regulars anymore that's where we are in the transfer market. But as tottenham have proven if the players suit the style of play we have anything is possible.

11.) 06 May 2017 02:00:09
Andre Silva would be quite the coup though. Can play both RW and ST. Good cover for Firmino and Mane until he is fully acclimatized to the BPL. Would be very expensive though. Hear he has a 60 million Euros buyout clause.

12.) 06 May 2017 08:43:40
Would rather see players like isco, van dyke, Bertrand, lanzini, cresswell, verratti and aubermyang on that list.

Left back, centre half, midfielder attacking midfielder and striker.

13.) 06 May 2017 09:27:49
HOW can you put Isco and Veratti in the same sentence as resell and Lanzin?! Hahaha I am dying, too much on this page sometimes.

14.) 06 May 2017 10:08:08
Did you not see lanzini last night toTrentham couldn't deal with him one of the best defendive units in the prem. More chance of getting him.

15.) 06 May 2017 10:34:58
Looks like we never learn from previous windows. Always looking for potential, with a sell-on value instead of established quality players, who can go straight into the first team.

16.) 08 May 2017 12:43:23
I have to agree with Payne10, but I don't think we'll ever be that club that goes for the superstars. I'd love VVD, Naingolan and Aubamayang/ Lacazette to be the list, but i have full faith in the manager for spotting talent so let's just get behind who ever we bring in.

Also i'd take Lanzini in a heart beat.

{Ed001's Note - why would you want Nainggolan? Yes he is a very good midfielder, but he is 29, a heavy smoker, parties like there is no tomorrow and is likely to only have a couple of years left in the tank with his lifestyle. Also he would not have any interest in leaving Rome, he loves it there, already turning down the chance to double his salary by moving to the Premier League at least once previously.}

17.) 08 May 2017 15:19:49
He's just always impressed me when I've seen him play, however I didn't realize he was that old so to be fair it would make little sense.

I also liked the look of Jetro Willems for LB but I've not seen much of him recently.

{Ed001's Note - I like Willems too, from what I have seen, but that isn't much.

Nainggolan is an excellent player but I would steer well clear.}

18.) 08 May 2017 21:41:44
Remember Jetro Willems used to be the 'next big thing' having been called up to the Dutch national squad for the Euros in 2012 and was linked with everyone. The Dutch being the Dutch though, crashed out with three losses in the group stages and Willems just kind of fell off the radar.



05 May 2017 13:46:48
Eds is there any other left wingers other than Brandt and Rafa that we are interested in ed?


{Ed002's Note - Try the Sharkopod.}



17 Apr 2017 18:22:18
Heard we are looking at Koulibaly eds? You know if we have expressed interest with Napoli? Quality defender tall, strong, quick, would be perfect partner at centre back with Matip. Probably be priced out of a move as I think Chelsea were quoted 40 million last summer and couldn't agree a deal? Would rather him than VVD anyway.


{Ed002's Note - Gosh.}

1.) 17 Apr 2017 19:17:44
Sorry I asked ed.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool making any approach to Napoli.}

2.) 17 Apr 2017 20:04:54
Thank you ed.

3.) 17 Apr 2017 23:00:25
I am glad Liverpool have no interest In Koulibaly, who is clumsy, is an incredibly poor passer and is not that good positionally. And it would cost an MOAB to sign him from Napoli and the nutter De Laurentis.

4.) 18 Apr 2017 19:18:29
Not wrong about De Laurentis there, AG. A real piece of work, that guy.



24 Mar 2017 11:08:17
Eds don't mean to throw a random name at you but I have been told we have looked at him. Have we shown any interest in Victor Lindelöf the Benfica centre back as of late?


{Ed002's Note - No, he signed a new contract after Benfica priced him out of a move to Manchester United.}

1.) 24 Mar 2017 11:50:40
Thank you ed.

22 May 2017 10:17:45
Eds just on the subject of wingers is it really that hard for someone like Salah who you have said is a right to just play left wing rather than the right? Like Sane has gone to city and went from playing right wing for Shalke to playing left wing for city. And if it was upto you not asking if there is interest who would you like realistically like to come in and play on the left week in week out? If it was upto me I would love Douglas Costa.


{Ed002's Note - It makes much more sense to play someone in position rather than out of position. Brandt is the preferred option and one in my view be by far the best option for Liverpool.}

1.) 22 May 2017 11:00:45
Brandt is a natural LW while Salah is a RW by trade. We have Mane for RW, so why try to shoehorn Salah in LW when we could buy a natural LW in Brandt for a slightly lower price and who arguably has a higher ceiling? Its really not that difficult to comprehend why Brandt is first choice for Klopp.
Costa is a pipe dream. Will be more expensive than Brandt and looks like he is Juve bound.

2.) 22 May 2017 11:25:19
Dont think Brandt is what we need ed. Watching him play he reminds me of a playmaker that plays on the wing. I think we need a more similar player like Mane with scary pace for the left side which I think Costa is.

{Ed002's Note - You need to get hold of Klopp and explain what is wrong with his picks.}

3.) 22 May 2017 14:15:37
Does he not read it on here Ed?

4.) 23 May 2017 00:06:06
Cyklopps, Costa won't be coming here and he's on the bench for a reason, that being his stinking attitude. Is he a great player? Yes. But Bayern are fed up with his antics of trying to get a better deal whereas he has not earned one in their eyes. Brandt is the real deal and that is why Klopp wants him and I'll be chuffed if we get him. If the great Ed02 who doesn't care for Klopp, thinks Brandt is the best option for LFC then you better believe the boy is good enuff.



21 May 2017 12:37:49
Klopp must rate Gruijic very highly as the club have rejected a loan offer from real Betis. Maybe he will actually be given games next season. Watched him for the under 23s and he has really impressed me. Can't see us signing another midfielder like Kieta now though if he's staying.


{Ed002's Note - If he goes on loan he will lose his Work Permit - that is why they rejected - and of course the commitment given by the club that they would not send him on loan.}

1.) 21 May 2017 12:54:31
I reckon we will see a lot more of Grujic next season. We all know Henderson has long term feet problems and doubt he will be featuring game in and out next season which could open the door for Grujic.

2.) 21 May 2017 13:45:16
I've seen a few comments over the months about our guarantees gruic would be a first team player to get his work permit, but hasn't he suffered some injuries and been available for long periods of the season?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, injuries have kept him out some of the time - but perhaps not as long as you think.}

3.) 21 May 2017 13:57:51
Really really like grujic in preseason he was strong and comfortable on the ball shake he hasn't had much game time.



19 May 2017 10:51:07
From reading MK Scousers team post he mentioned something interesting in Can replacing Henderson and to be honest I agree. First of all I am not slating Henderson in any way but his Heel issue is likely to mean he will never play many games a season for us. he's a great captain but we need someone who can lead us on the pitch week in week out. With Milner looking as though he will be replaced at left back and there isn't many postions up for grabs for him apart from maybe a bench role or even leaving. So without Milner and Henderson in the team we will need a captain who can walk the team out and lead. My choice is Can who I think of all the players he has shown the most leadership and has been mostly injury free and available to play most weeks more than the rest. I think he has the potential to be one of the best in the world and I think making him captain would only improve him more. Who does everyone else think would be a good choice?


1.) 19 May 2017 10:59:37
i'd like lovren to lead us. Leaders should be defenders and it improves to their overall game too.

2.) 19 May 2017 11:13:22
Can. you need your head testing he inst good enough to play every week he has had a good end to the season while he is looking for a new contract/ move. The captain in my opinion and this is only me should be Lallana. he did a great job at Southampton and is now a better player.

3.) 19 May 2017 11:20:13

Lead us?


4.) 19 May 2017 11:21:38
There's two ways to look at it. Some players take to a vocal leader, someone with respect and intelligence. I get that view and it's the path most clubs choose.
On the other side, you choose a player who gives the whole team a mental boost, just seeing him kit up in the dressing room, a leader by example.
We were very lucky in the past to have both. Carra the former, gerrard the latter.
I'm actually in the latter camp, if I'm having a bad game, I want my captain to be able to bail me out, but also someone I can learn from.
In my mind it's clear, if you want the former, lovren maybe, can and lallana are all fair shouts.
The latter, mane an couts would be good shouts.
All down to opinion and preference I guess.

5.) 19 May 2017 11:23:16
well he isn;t going to leave us, so i'd let him lead us :P
lets say that is the only way he can be the leaser in that defense.

6.) 19 May 2017 11:32:27
You've made an assumption about hendo's injury, we're a long way away from knowing what impact it will have on his future.

If Hendo does need replacing then we should be looking at a player who's going to hold down a starting position for a few years and I'm not convinced that can be aid about Can.

7.) 19 May 2017 12:21:33
I seem to remember one of the ed's (I think it was Ed001) saying a while back that Liverpool would never pick a captain who isn't English.

{Ed001's Note - it depends on the manager. Brendan Rodgers had made it plain he wanted an Englishman as captain of the club. Klopp might not feel that is as important.}

8.) 19 May 2017 12:45:42
I think the candidates could be Hendo, Milner, Gini, Llalana and Can roughly in that order

Hendo for who he is, Milner for his professionalism and experience, Gini because he's got experience, captained before and is a midfield cog, Llalana likewise but he's a bit too mouthy for me so can come across sometimes as a boy pretending to be a man, Can is a future captain material but too early IMO.

9.) 19 May 2017 12:56:14
I can think of a few notable captains who weren't English:

Hyypia, Hansen, Souness - off the top of my head.

10.) 19 May 2017 13:17:38
A captain doesn't need to be on the pitch. Henderson will do a lot of his work off the pitch also its what he is to all the other players.

Not wanted
Tried to offload
Fo7ght for everyrhing he has
Now captain

Any young player seing that there captain had the potebtial rejection there now getting or the slow start he had and with hardwork got to where he is. you can't really put a price on that.

Just to back up. Carra was never captain but was always he true leader on the pitch.

Lallana is the leader on the pitch for me but i wouodnt make him captain.

No coincidence he comes back and whwre able to press again. His hardwork inspires others around him. Thr fact it could be the 90min an he is still rnning, doesn't give other players a get out to walk around.

11.) 19 May 2017 14:03:18
Ian rush was captain as were
Kenny. Ronnie Whelan, but for shorter periods.

My mate has just said that Glen Hysen
From Sweden captained the club but I'm not 100% on that

I had even forgotten about him even as a player.

That's what age does to you.

{Ed007's Note -

12.) 19 May 2017 14:21:30
Another small minded thinking from BR. Hyppia was captain of Liverpool. Kompany is captain of City. Both great captains, great leaders of men and role models off the pitch. Who cares where a captain comes from provided he can do the job, be a leader of men and lead the team to success. Warped thinking, really?

13.) 19 May 2017 14:26:49
We've missed hendo. when fit he's in the team and he's a good captain. Speeds up our play which at times can be a bit pedestrian. great footballing brain.

14.) 19 May 2017 15:06:37
We need 11 captains ;)

For the record Henderson has been out the last few weeks with a thigh injury. It's not the unspellable heel thing right now. Previous posters who have experienced the affliction have confirmed that, whilst not curable, it is manageable; but significantly it will not last for his whole career. As easily as it came it will one day go away again.

That all said I don't think we need both Can and Hendo on the pitch playing the same role at the same time. It's too defensive and we play better with only one of them. They should rotate for that midfield anchor position.

15.) 19 May 2017 21:13:31
When fit and able, Henderson is the unquestioned Captain for me. And when not playing then I'd go for Can or Lovren (in that order) . Both have leadership qualities and that necessary, aggressive "you're not getting by me" look in their eyes. If they've had difficult games then I would simply say so what? Henderson and Milner have had them too. We've had the strong but silent types in Gerrard, Lucas, Henderson and Milner. Maybe time for a vocal and demonstrative leader on the pitch? For some reason, I don't think Lallana has the mettle to be a Captain. He just doesn't strike me as the guy you would turn to for an answer during a difficult situation. But I don't question his footballing skills. If Sakho had still been in the team, he would have been on my list, too.

{Ed025's Note - im with you on liverpool needing a vocal captain ra, hendo is like a mouse and even though he leads by example is far too laid back, you need a souness type who would frighten the life out of these pussies when they dont show up, i think he may have to be imported though mate as i dont see anyone in the squad who fits the bill..

16.) 20 May 2017 00:21:10
I don't have a problem with importing one little bit, Ed025. As long as it's a Captain who keeps the machine rolling smoothly, and as per plan, during the 90 minutes, I don't care where the passport is from. I'd absolutely love a Gennaro Gattuso or Romeo Benetti in the team.

{Ed025's Note - i remember gattuso ra, no messing about with him and a great leader mate, i have a feeling that he would be suspended more than playing though now that it seems to be a non-contact sport these days..



11 May 2017 10:44:43
Eds do you think we gave up too quickly on Iago Aspas? There is no question he is a talented player and is showing it in La Liga this season and for Spain. He didn't get much chances to be fair to him because Suarez and Sturridge were so good. I think with patience he could of went onto to be a great player for us. Although that's not what I said to the telly watching his corner haha.


{Ed002's Note - He was better than Rodgers realised.}

1.) 11 May 2017 11:01:33
He was severely lacking in physicality. He is a fighter in la liga, but that attribute was never going to work for him in the BPL where the intensity and pace is much more brutal. Not to mention he was signed the very season the SAS ran riot. If he had the signed the following season, he would have gotten more opportunities after Suarez left.

2.) 11 May 2017 11:17:07
Some players certainly suit certain leagues better than others as well, it might just be that the Spanish league is an excellent fit for Aspas' skill set. Even if he was to come back tomorrow I'm not sure he'd have the goal-scoring record he enjoys for Celta.

{Ed001's Note - he never settled well in England either. He had never wanted to play for anyone but Celta.}

3.) 11 May 2017 11:35:53
If he scores a hat trick tonight, I may begin to think about forgiving him for THAT corner.
I felt sorry for the lad though at Liverpool as he just couldn't seem to adapt to the English game. He certainly has the ability but the physicality just wasn't there at all.

4.) 11 May 2017 11:50:58
Too lightweight
Let's hope h can do the business today.

5.) 11 May 2017 12:24:43
If he scores a hat trick tonigh he will instantly become an lfc legend regardless of his playin time at the club.

6.) 11 May 2017 13:02:08
I didn't know that but it's also a great point Ed - some players, when playing for their boyhood clubs, find something extra they just can't deliver for another side - Aspas certainly wouldn't be the only player to have this trait.

{Ed001's Note - he is a very good player though, he was just very unlucky really or he would have become a cult hero at the club, I think. He had the workrate and technique to be loved.}

7.) 11 May 2017 18:04:36
"too lightweight", lol.

8.) 11 May 2017 20:51:51
too lightweight, and doubt very much he will score even one goal V United, never mind three .

9.) 11 May 2017 22:55:54
Aspas is a beast of a player with great work ethic, attitude and is very talented (25 goals in all comps this season) . He is now in the Spain set up with Morata and Costa and should be on the bus to Russia next year. Him not making it at LFC changes nothing on that front.



09 May 2017 13:20:46
Very Disappointed with Origi lately. I am one of his biggest fans but he hasn't taken his chance since Mane got injured. At his age he should nearly be coming into his prime near 23. I hope he makes it in time. But I would rather see sturridge or Firmino as striker for next game.


1.) 09 May 2017 13:33:18
Calm down, he lacks consistency but he's actually just turned 22. He's 4-5 years off most players' prime. He's done okay when he's played but I'm sure next season he'lol progress further.

{Ed001's Note - in the position he plays, experience is everything.}

2.) 09 May 2017 14:26:54
Spot on, Swisch, The last CF who was tearing it up at 22 was Rooney and even he needed time to develop as Ed said cos experience is everything in the CF position. I agree that he has not been great BUT we should NOT write him off cos we have seen what he can do when on form. He is simply unplayable. He is struggling being isolated up top with no help and BTW, he is not the only one struggling cos everyone is including the manager. I do agree that Lallana should start and Firmino should be back up top to give him a blow cos he needs it. Will Klopp do it? We shall see.

3.) 09 May 2017 17:31:12
To be fair N red, Kane and Lukaku both scored 20+ goals at 22.

I think this is the issue though. Everybody thinks that all players progress at the same rates. At 22 years old Owen was winning Balon D'ors and Drogba was unheard of. At 30 Owen was a nobody and Drogba was scoring in CL finals.

There is no point comparing players and using age as the primary support for your argument. Every player is different. It's about sporting the raw talent.

To buy or loan? If its a loan deal seems perfect as Klopp doesn't look as though he will giving him chances anytime soon. Experience playing week in week out for a club like Burnley in the premier league would be a great experience for him.

Thanks ed for the reply ed. I wasn't trying to call Celtic a small club or anything. I think he would make a good coach ed with an experienced director of football under him. I don't like him as a person if I'm being honest after letting Pascoe and Marsh basically take the blame for his poor management by giving them the sack.


{Ed001's Note - that was extremely distasteful, Pascoe was meant to be a good friend of his. Shows a lack of loyalty.}

Why do you think Firmino is our best player ed? I like him a lot but doesn't score enough to lead the line I think. I think behind a striker in the centre would be the ideal position for him. For me the best player for us is Henderson by a mile, we look great when he is on the pitch.


{Ed001's Note - because Firmino has the best touch, technique and workrate.}

08 May 2017 17:18:37
Do you really think Firmino is our best player ed? Do you think he is suited to lead the line Week in week out? I like him as a player but would much rather him play in the middle behind a striker. Doesn't score enough to play upfront just my opinion. I would honestly say our best player is Henderson, we look a different team when he is playing.


{Ed001's Note - I would say Hendo is most important but Firmino is our best. He creates enough to make up for any lack of goals scored.}

Eds is there any way the club can expand the stadium beyond the expansion of the anfield road end? I really think 62,000 isn't enough for a club like liverpool who have a worldwide fan base. We could fill 90,000 this weekend if we had the seats I think. If there were more seats ticket prices could come down. I love Anfield and always will but think we should of built a stadium on Stanley Park when we had the chance.


{Ed002's Note - No. (a) Liverpool do not have the money to pay for the new infrastructure that would be required. (b) Liveroop do not have the money to expand the stadium that far. (c) The ticket pricese would not come down and it will take many, many years to pay back.

Not going to happen.}
