So it looks like Ancelloti will be leaving Bayern at the end of the season.

I remember you mentioning something about Klopp wanting to manage Bayern or vica versa.

Do you think there will be an approach from Bayern for Klopp if Ancelloti does leave?



{Ed002's Note - Yes it is on the cards that CA will be leaving a year early and Bayern are indeed considering their options. Whilst Klopp did want the job this will not be good timing and will be a year ahead of previous thoughts. Right now I would not expect an approach.}

1.) 27 Sep 2017 16:25:33
Then maybe we can have a exchange with Bayern.

2.) 27 Sep 2017 19:25:59
Klopp's profile has taken a serious beating and will not be on top 3 of BM radar.

They will be looking at Hoffenheim mgr and others.

3.) 28 Sep 2017 02:42:33

Klopp's profile has "taken a serious beating"?

How exactly? Took a struggling side from 8th to 4th, plays exciting creative football. We've had some struggles recently, but any idea his stock has thus fallen seems petty and silly.

4.) 28 Sep 2017 07:12:20
Klopp can't seem to set up a defence so his rep has been hit surely. The UK media have fallen out of love with him as have some fans.

Hope he stays though.

5.) 28 Sep 2017 14:22:40
Ancellotti has just been sacked!

6.) 28 Sep 2017 14:35:21
Before I say, I just want to clarify before anyone has a go at me I do not want Klopp to leave or am I trying to slate our Manager. Ed01 in the unlikely event Klopp goes to Bayern who realistically would you have to replace him at the club? Asking really to get your thoughts on Managers you think highly of after your recent article about overrated managers.

{Ed001's Note - I honestly cannot think of a realistic choice.}

7.) 28 Sep 2017 15:00:54
Rafa Benitez? Would jump at the chance to return to the club, and he would bloody do something about our awful defense.
And before people jump on my back, I want to clarify I do not want Klopp to leave. BUt its inevitable he will leave at some point for Bayern, so we need to be prepared for that.

8.) 28 Sep 2017 15:25:55
Good Shout Buzzer can't think of any other option apart from him to be honest. Matter of time before he falls out with Ashley at Newcastle so I agree a reckon he would definitely be up for a return to us.

9.) 28 Sep 2017 15:43:19
As our Sporting director is lacking in experience, I'd replace Klopp with a more experienced manager. They could also then act as a mentor for Pepjin Lijnders.

Someone who is exceptional at the job, a seasoned veteran, but relatively realistic; like Jorge Jesus, Mauricio Sarri or Carlo Ancelotti.

I'd love Allegri or Simeone but they are not going to leave the clubs they are at, for Liverpool mid season.

{Ed002's Note - Super Stevie Nicol is available.}

10.) 28 Sep 2017 15:56:48
No thanks 002! Nicol was a great player, but he is a little bit of a mouth piece nowadays! Haha. He has been publically scratching towards a fair few current players as well!

{Ed002's Note - You don't think a dream team of SSN and SSG would work then?}

11.) 28 Sep 2017 16:31:22
Can i gouge my eyes out instead?

12.) 28 Sep 2017 17:08:22
Tom werner says our new sporting director is world class . After his first summer in charge of transfers world class at what?

13.) 28 Sep 2017 18:18:24
Ancelloti was my first choice over Klopp, would be interesting to see what team would be had CA been appointed.

{Ed025's Note - a boring one..

14.) 28 Sep 2017 19:08:00
Klopp can set up a defence, he's done it before. Lack of transfers is our undoing as it has been for years. Way before he came.

15.) 28 Sep 2017 19:23:22
IF and that's a big if klopp leaves id like the german coach lowe, id love poch tbh rbl manager or go big for simeone.

16.) 28 Sep 2017 23:10:38
Silva from Watford anyone?

17.) 29 Sep 2017 01:12:36
Leonardo Jardim?

18.) 29 Sep 2017 00:00:47
Disappointed in Klopp. Going to Bayern from Dortmund seems like such a betrayal, same as all those players who moved. Don't know how others see it, especially German fans? Maybe it's expected?

Also feel like the "if I only coach three clubs. " speech last year was a load of horsesh1t.

{Ed001's Note - what are you talking about? He has gone nowhere yet.}

19.) 29 Sep 2017 08:05:49
Unbelievable. Ancelotti gets sacked and Robboz has already pegged Klopp as Bayern's new manager.

20.) 29 Sep 2017 08:14:37
From what I've read here, it sounds like it's only a matter of time.

Okay, I will reserve my disappointment until he does.

21.) 29 Sep 2017 13:31:59
If Klopp does get sacked there's this young Northern Irish managed in Scotland at the moment doing well

Brodgers or something like that.

He might be worth a shout.

{Ed025's Note - i could manage celtic and win that league dawn..

22.) 29 Sep 2017 14:14:09
That was a joke btw. didn't think i had to qualify that.

{Ed025's Note - i did get that mate..

23.) 29 Sep 2017 14:29:10
Maybe we could go for Koeman once he gets removed.

Sorry Ed25, could resist 😜😜.

{Ed025's Note - im better than him i can assure you drogie..

24.) 29 Sep 2017 15:55:26
Got his initial team selection wrong last night mate. IMO.

{Ed025's Note - every week for me drogie mate, playing rooney is his main flaw..

25.) 29 Sep 2017 23:09:52
Seriously discussing klopp replacement? Whilst he has many failings he is surely the best option at this time.

If he can sort the defence out then who knows how far he can take us.

26.) 30 Sep 2017 23:11:44
Flash, are you dim?

Read Ed2's response to the first post in this thread.

Apparently Klopp wanted the Bayern job, although at this point it is a year ahead of what the previously thought timescale might have been. This sounds to me like Klopp may be off after next season, or thereabouts.

The haters can give this a thumbs down all they want but it's there for all to see.

27.) 01 Oct 2017 15:56:13
XABI wants to manage! ! :-)

28.) 01 Oct 2017 16:22:00
I think you meant signing Rooney ed025.

29.) 03 Oct 2017 00:17:25
This is about the only statement that Ed002 has made about Klopp that I genuinely can't see. Especially when he does things like this. It's just my opinion of course.

I think today is the 65th Anniversary when Ronnie Moran made his debut against Derby County. Played with the likes of Billy Liddell and Paisley, fantastic servant to the club.


1.) 21 Nov 2017 15:30:49
Moran = LEGEND.



11 Nov 2017 07:47:47
Morning Ed 001.

Sorry to raise the Couthino issue again but something has been on my mind and was talking to friends on it last night.

He clearly wants to play for Barcelona but if the likes of say PSG come in with a better offfer does the club have any say as to where he goes?

We know player power has been a big thing for years but he has a lengthy contract and he's employed by LFC. People say contacts are there to drive the price of the player up but surely the club has to have some time of legal rights?


{Ed001's Note - the only say they have is in which offers they accept, the player could then reject the team that makes an acceptable offer and hold out for a different one if they wish.}

1.) 11 Nov 2017 08:00:23
Right, so that could then ( and one uses the term loosely ) negate any bidding war and play into Barca’s hand.
Contacts really do mean nothing these days.

My stance on this has changed and. I’m with you now Ed001, we should just get rid but ensure we get the maxim price and screw Barcelona of every penny we can, with the conditions of the sale on our terms.

{Ed001's Note - it is sad to see, but he has to go. He could have been a legend with Liverpool. Oh well, his loss.}

2.) 11 Nov 2017 09:10:18
True eds it is a shame brilliant player but his heart has gone over to the Barcelona side. Just need to let him leave now get as much as we can and move on we’ve done it many times and it will happen again.

{Ed001's Note - players always move on eventually, just not always is it done amicably. Let him go and he can be remembered for the good times, hang on to them and it tarnishes the memory. I hate it when that happens as it does no one any good.}

3.) 11 Nov 2017 14:44:44
Right on, Ed. He needs to go for the sake of the team as he is simply no longer into LFC. It's a shame he is leaving cos he was well-accepted by the team and the city and he in turn, gave us some very brilliant games and moments (esp. vs City who will be glad to see the back of him) . But it is only the way he is doing it that is disappointing BUT life goes on and we move on.



08 Nov 2017 07:57:23
Morning Ed 1

You mentioned we might no see Couts play again, especially if we look to off load him in January.

Firstly I really hope the club gets every penny we want from him and don't buckle under pressure.

Do you think we will look to replace him or re invest in other areas of the squad? We've played ok without him, all be it against teams of not such high quality.


{Ed001's Note - Klopp wants to replace him.}

1.) 08 Nov 2017 08:27:01
Not sure replacing Couts in the Jan market is such a good idea. The replacement obviously has to be a very good player at least and clubs do not want to sell their best players mid season. Last thing we need is a big money panic buy.
Smart thing would be to pay RBL a little extra and bring Keita in January itself. He will bust his gut to get us into the top4 so paying another 10 million will be cheap change compared to the riches of the UCL. Then we can replace Coutinho in the summer when players actually have a better chance of moving coz let's be honest, Monaco and Leverkusen are not letting Lemar or Brandt go in January.

2.) 08 Nov 2017 09:38:47
Indian, We bought Suarez in a January Window. It's not impossible but will be difficult.

3.) 08 Nov 2017 13:13:14
In fact, we signed Suárez, Sturridge and Coutinho in January transfer windows. Not bad those 3!

4.) 08 Nov 2017 18:10:14
It is not impossible BUT awfully difficult, RedEka.



28 Oct 2017 14:03:28
I'm on my way to the match, radio on and team news through.

Lovren starts.

I absolutely cannot believe this.


1.) 28 Oct 2017 14:08:40
And Migs like what's that about people!

2.) 28 Oct 2017 14:12:10
so mignolet and lovern start am speechless. so grujic Robertson solanke all on the bench still no game time yet migs and lovren get picked no matter what my opinion it's a joke.

3.) 28 Oct 2017 14:13:00
Im the most rose tinted up beat glass half full kinda person. but i absolulty can't believe this. I have all the tine in the world for klopp bit this is insane. Not happy at all at this decision!

4.) 28 Oct 2017 14:13:29
Get used to it - until January. It's "common" sense.

5.) 28 Oct 2017 14:23:06
My worry with sticking with Mignolet and Lovren is that it's going to demotivate Karius and Klavan. If they can't get into the team after last week then how are they ever going to get in to team? I don't understand this blind faith.

6.) 28 Oct 2017 14:25:26
Slide tackle agreed!

7.) 28 Oct 2017 14:35:10
It's not blind faith. It's a lack of options. If he drops lovren it means using taa AND gomes. I'm not surprised there. I am surprised about the GK though. Karius is good enough, if he wasn't he wouldn't be picked for ucl games.

8.) 28 Oct 2017 14:38:22
I know he's injured atm, but Ward probably got demoralised at the beginning of the season! I still believe in Klopp, but some of his decisions are weird!

9.) 28 Oct 2017 14:39:52
does anythink Wagner will be having a quiet giggle to himself i've come to the conclusion klopp ain't going to listen to anyone-any advice or anythink at all its called BLOODY STUBBONESS.

10.) 28 Oct 2017 14:40:42
What do they have to do to get dropped? That's what scares me.

11.) 28 Oct 2017 14:42:00
If liverpool loose today Klipperty is on a very slippery slope to oblivion. I hope the players put a shift in for him.

12.) 28 Oct 2017 14:53:08
I'll still hope we win and cheer on the lads but. wow so disappointed with team selection. It beggars belief.

13.) 28 Oct 2017 14:55:14
Deluded Klopp.

14.) 28 Oct 2017 15:20:20
Klavan is as bad as Lovren so it makes no difference.

15.) 28 Oct 2017 17:32:22
3 0. Well done klopp, tactics were spot on. Team selection proved to be correct too. All round a good afternoon.

Congratulations Danny Sturridge, 100 goals ain't too shoddy for someone who has spent the last 2/ 3 years injured.

16.) 28 Oct 2017 19:15:23
I am so tired of this BS i have heard this excuse for the entirety of my liverpool supporting life. The reason we have no options is because the people who were there to make sure we did, the manager and the board, have failed us again. I'm not having it used as a crutch to lie on, klopp got us into this mess now he better fix it and give some of these younger lads a chance.



21 Oct 2017 07:21:34
Morning Ed001.

Do you think Klopp will be able to assemble a squad to really challenge for the league?

Our first team on paper can beat anyone on their day IMO but it's when the injurys kick in and squad depth comes into play is when we will struggle.

I honestly think if we'd have had Lallana and Mané fit last weekend, we'd have beaten the red mancs, they were poor.

It's hard though to see past the Manchester clubs with all the money their managers have at their disposal.


{Ed001's Note - if he is given the time, yes I do think he can. He does need time though and, as was said repeatedly when he came in, it will be a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs. Klopp will have to develop youngsters to compete with the richer clubs, which means there will be blips.}

1.) 21 Oct 2017 07:49:05
Unlesss it goes horrible wrong, I really hope he’s given time, the last thing we need is yet another manager implementing new methods and ideas etc.

The only other concern is keeping hold of our best players if we’re not winning trophies, again it’s the likes of United that can pay huge salaries to keep the players,

2.) 21 Oct 2017 07:51:38
The real test will be holding on to the few top players already at the club. Coutinho's got one foot out of the door already and we need to replace him properly. The others like Firmino, Mane, Salah, Keita need to be in it for the long haul for Klopp to have any chance of building a title winning team. You cannot challenge on a consistent basis if your best players keep on leaving.
Also to make sure that the few quality young players like Woodburn, Kent, TAA, Gomez get plenty of game time in the future. They cost us next to nothing and should form the spine of our team for the future than being used as squad paddings as they clearly have the talent to be regular starters.
Oh and stop signing squad players like OX, Klavan, Robertson, Gini etc. Serves no purpose in the long run.

3.) 21 Oct 2017 08:16:38
Exactly my point above Buzzer, need to keep our best players if we’re going to challenge.

4.) 21 Oct 2017 08:28:51
The best players only remains if you constantly challenge for the title.

5.) 21 Oct 2017 08:37:11
I think anything is possible over time, look at Leicester. I do wonder how much patience managers have when fans start calling for sackings and being constantly critical, he might walk in a few years anyway.

We know that we need to be better defensively and it frustrates us but I have to trust that a bunch of managers and coaches who have won trophies are working on it whilst still trying to keep to their beliefs of how they want to play the game.

Klopp is the best fit for Liverpool right now.

6.) 21 Oct 2017 08:52:13
Salah and Bobby seem to really love the club. I don't think we'll ever see either player force their way out.

The real hope is that all these relatively expensive youngsters (Gomez, Grujic, Solanke etc) come good and that one or two of our own grads make the cut to (Woodburn and Arnold clearly have the best chance) . I know we have a lot of other talented kids, but those 5 are the clear standouts for me.

That's half a team there if Klopp and Lijnders can get the best out of them and help them develop into the players they're threatening to be.

We can't compete with the Manchester sides, or Chelsea in the market. But we can be better than them at bringing through young players because we can't just buy-buy-buy.

{Ed001's Note - Salah said he was a Liverpool fan as a kid. Very believable as the club has a huge following in Egypt.}

7.) 21 Oct 2017 09:07:00
Mane might though. He forced his way out of Southampton to take the next step and he might do the same with us. Klopp's project is heavily reliant on the understanding and play between our forward players. We are already losing Coutinho and seeing Mane go too will be disastrous for us.
Keita, Mane, Salah, Firmino. These 4 senior players cannot be let go at any cost. Coutinho is gone, the rest need to stay to allow Klopp the breathing space to bring through the kids and keep the project going. Especially in a competitive league like the BPL, managers don't have the luxury of blips. Klopp needs his best players to stay and make sacrifices while the kids learn their trade.
It all comes down to our best players wanting to stay put. The above mentioned 4 players are the key, the rest (young players aside) can be easily replaced.

8.) 21 Oct 2017 09:11:58
Isn’t the Ox and LFC fan too?

{Ed025's Note - that depended on how much they paid him drogie..

9.) 21 Oct 2017 09:42:02
LOL Ed025 Classic ☺️☺️☺️.

10.) 21 Oct 2017 09:53:52
To the above posters who are proposing infinite speculations.

How about, Let’s actually win a trophy than bottling the finals and celebrating to reach the finals lol!

Why do you think Hazard is sticking with Chelsea or Silva / Aguero sticking with City?

Trophies are like magnets. You win and you keep the best players! You don’t then you lose them!

11.) 21 Oct 2017 12:22:14
I would agree with Harry. Unless you compete on the trophy front then the top players will want to leave or at least attract interest from the bigger clubs. Klopp will need a bit of luck with the young players coming thru, some of which have the potential to be very good, especially Woodburn who, for me looks the real deal. I think Klopp gave himself 4 years to win the league, so next season then? A big ask at this point in time but things can change quickly in football. He needs a couple of lucky breaks.

12.) 21 Oct 2017 14:06:45
I would rather we give Klopp more time than change manager, I really like him, Like eds said lots of ups and downs, on our day our attack is unbeatable. We have to look to find consistency in attack to keep scoring, some games we look a bit devoid of ideas. As well as improve our defence and keep a solid balance between to two.

If it takes a bit more time of development the team and manager have my full support TAA i rate highly and additionally gomez. Think Moreno still is questionable but has been better this season, looks like some form of discipline is creeping in. Unfortunately when i was born Liverpools dominant era was coming to an end so if it takes a bit more time of waiting to happen i can live with that aha.

Hopefully we pick up some points today!

13.) 21 Oct 2017 14:21:06
Gini Robertson and oxade chamberlain are good players who will all have a massive part to play if Liverpool are to be successful. Klavan is the signing that I question but he is left footed and huge and I can see why he was brought in just not enough quality.

14.) 21 Oct 2017 14:46:09
Klopp has that charisma to connect with the fans something our previous managers never had which is what keeping is job and reputation safe. Everyone likes Klopp incluing the neutrals. Touch line celebrations. Hugging players, waving hands! He is slowly becoming the face of the club! FSG’s most important investment till date!

I could see him at the club for a good period of time inspite of winning NOTHING in between. He is a long long way off from being a good MANAGER! And I am pretty sure fans will never question him even if he don’t win the league.

We are safe as long as the money is being pumped into the league by Sky, the moment it stops we would then need results and trophies!

15.) 21 Oct 2017 15:32:42
What's the point of worrying about Keita leaving before we have even signed him proper! Coutinio isn't gone yet. I'm sure he will leave but it isn't set in stone. Mane won't be off, no way.

16.) 21 Oct 2017 15:39:52
The kids will only get better if we play them ahead of others when injuries and poor form strike. If sturridge isn't doing the business we need to give solanke a go, wijnaldum henderson etc need a rest and to be dropped to make way for grujic and coutinho to drop back into midfield.

17.) 21 Oct 2017 14:09:54
Didn't the Ox accept a pay cut to join us Ed025 🤔?

{Ed025's Note - apparently fornax, but if he was on minimum wage you will still have been ripped off mate..

18.) 22 Oct 2017 09:00:27
IB, i agree with you. I can see Mane forcing his way out in a couple of years. Much as i love him, he seems like he is quite selfish. Not in a bad way, just in that he'll put his career before appeasing his adoring fans. He has forced his way out of every club he's been at when he has decided he's outgrown them.

If we don't win trophies, and Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Inter Milan etc come calling, odds are he'll ask to go. Might not be an issue in a couple of years though because Alexander-Arnold (who started out as a right winger) could be ready to take the mantle.

He is explosive, great on the ball, clearly has an eye for goal, and is a set piece specialist. I am almost certain Trent will end up as a midfielder or a winger. He's wasted at right back and his defensive side of the game isn't developing anywhere near as quickly as his offensive side is!

On a side note, trophies are made from non-ferrous metals Harry, therefore it is impossible to make them magnetic 😉.

Barcelona didn’t just take what they can when they sold Neymar. If they can’t afford the asking price then walk away. If I walk into a car Showroom selling Austin Martin’s would they just take what they can purely because I want the vehicle but can’t affford it?

We’ve seen the TV deals inflate the price of players over the last few years, you just need to look at average players cost £40m

The clubs are happy to take the money.

Obviously the player will get what he wants, in his move to Barcelona but FSG has to make sure we get every penny we want from Barca. Nothing less will be acceptable and no pathetic player exchange either, unless they give us Messi 😂.

After standing firm in the summer, I’d be very disappointed if the club were to let Couts go in Jan. it’s going to hard enough to replace a player of his quality, will be even more difficult in the Jan transfer window.
