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.

Last season the team came back from a sunny training camp and lost 3-1 to Leicester.

West Ham won't be easy today but we really need to beat moyse's Hammers. We have opportunity to move up to 2nd above those lot across the 62.

No room for complacency today

Come on red men!


1.) 24 Feb 2018 09:16:21
I agree no excuses today.



21 Feb 2018 07:53:43
Looking at the fixtures, we've got some big consecutive games coming up.

2nd leg - Porto at home followed by United away. Then providing we get through to the the Qtr final, we play the first leg then Everton away.

Whilst rest in between games is good, I also think consistency whilst playing is also good, keeping the momentum going.

If we can clear of injury's, then I feel we have enough to beat both United and Everton away.


1.) 21 Feb 2018 11:05:55
Ings, Solanke, Lallana and AOC should step up and make it count! Else they can leave in the summer! Our front three would need reinforcement!

2.) 21 Feb 2018 11:39:54
God harry have you heard yourself. Ings has had just bad luck, give him a break, AOC hasn't been here 5 minutes, Lallana wants out anyway, I have that on good authority. Solanke fair enough but he's still young, give him time, I think your been a little too harsh by saying 'Else they can leave in the summer'.

3.) 21 Feb 2018 12:28:20
we all know harry really supports chelsea they way he waxes lyrical about them. in the 6 years I've followed this site I can count on 2 fingers the amount of times I've seen him be positive about liverpool players. he also changes his mind more than I change my underpants. can was useless, then more recently he became an absolute beast, now he's trash again according to the latest reports

**queue the defence from negativewalter**.

4.) 21 Feb 2018 13:00:12
I knew that was Harry. I agree that they have to step up BUT if you think Klopp will sell any of those esp. Solanke who just got here then you are living in Chelsea or City land. Get a grip, man.

5.) 21 Feb 2018 13:25:20
Ings need games! He has been crying out for it from some time. Lallana has been at the club for 5 years now! Solanke had demands when he signed for Liverpool on playing time. And we paid £40 mill for AOC who again wanted playing times. I am sorry they need to step up and make it count or Klopp would buy better pedigree in the summer and some will be shown the door! You only get a handful of opportunities to prove yourself in this competitive world. You got to take it and make a point. I am not being harsh mate! If you don’t perform someone else would take your place!

6.) 21 Feb 2018 14:01:28
Ox and Solanke do not belong in this conversation 😂

Lallana and Ings, i will give you. Neither are top quality based on their careers here to date, and both have had major injury problems. So i can agree that they are competing for their futures at the club.

You ruined your whole point though Harty by slagging off Ox and Solanke who have done nothing wrong, and have usually impressed when they've had a rare chance. Solanke is still just 19/ 20 years old! You can't write him off after about 700 minutes of football. You need to wise up sometimes and support our players. If you don't consider yourself a Liverpool supporter every single day, then stop pretending to be one every so often. Go and support Man City, RBL or PSG. Or some other soulless club.

7.) 21 Feb 2018 15:10:09
Spot on, MK. Love your last paragraph. Harry, Slating Ox and Solanke, is just embarrassing whereas they've only been here a few months. It is that type of pathetic attitude that turn fans against players just cos they have not hit the ground running as if one can do that w/ o actually getting games. if you wanna write players off after barely getting chances to play football then it says a lot more about your football knowledge than it does the players you are baselessly and shamelessly slating, Ings included (who has been injured for pretty much two years) .



15 Feb 2018 19:53:33
Showing my age a bit here boys but thought of a light hearted song for the kop driving over the the Manchester office this minding. regarding our front 3.To the song, Sugar sugar by the Archies. Most will need to google it 😜

🎶Oh Salah De de de de de
O oooh Mané Mané De De De De De
Bobby Firniniooooooo

Our fab front three, were're running the show.

Oh Salah De De De De
O oooh Mané Mané De De De De
Our fab front three, we're running the show 🎶

Not sure I'll be standing up and trying to get this song going at the next home game. I'll probably have my season ticket ticket off me 😂.


{Ed025's Note - that has already been done drogie, it was on soccer am and all over the net mate...your later than a VVD tackle im afraid..

1.) 15 Feb 2018 20:20:42
Ed25.You’ve just ruined my evening.

Was driving on the M62 this morning, the song came on and the words just flowed 😂😂😂😂

Don’t wet him soccer am, too busy playing trains with my 4 year old lad!

{Ed025's Note - sorry drogie but i had to tell you mate, and please dont make any songs up to the tune of...."the fields of anthenry, thats been done as well.. :)

2.) 15 Feb 2018 20:32:48
ED I think you have a typo, michael keane came out as VVD

Drogie, you are definitely not corks biggest liverpool fan!

3.) 15 Feb 2018 20:50:32
The thing is, we sing the “Mane Mane” bit in the kop, is just not heard the rest re Salah and bobby.

Ah well.

4.) 15 Feb 2018 23:44:52
Let it go lad 🙈.



10 Feb 2018 10:40:36
Morning Ed001.

Thought we really started to look jaded during the 2nd half against Spurs, thought they took advantage of this by stretching the play.

Do you you think Klopp will make changes against Saints, with Porto in mind on Wednesday?

With 12 games to go and CL games this will be a real test of how strong we are in the run in.


{Ed001's Note - I don't think we were jaded, we came out deeper, so it couldn't have been that. It was a tactical change that just led to us getting overrun and the player's were struggling to cope.}

1.) 10 Feb 2018 11:12:37
I always try and guess the starting line up using the Friday training photo's to help.

Total guess work but Ben Woodburn looked to be wearing the same coloured bib as all the players you'd expect to start (Firmino, Salah, Mane etc) .

2.) 10 Feb 2018 11:15:26
I saw it as such, as well Ed. It may not had been the best tactic and indeed, all tactics are gambles in the end, IMO. It did work by and large, IMO until as they created next to no clear chances (3 shots on target in 95 mins says it all) until their first goal happened and then the refs stepped in it.

3.) 10 Feb 2018 11:24:09
You may be right, MK.

4.) 10 Feb 2018 11:24:14
Interesting that mk, would possibly see him play in the midfield 3? I wouldn't be mad seeing him get a chance to be the creative force from there in this game, would be great opportunity for him!

5.) 10 Feb 2018 12:18:00
We are an extremely fit and mobile team and so are Spurs. I think we out ran spurs in the first half and then blew out of steam. Spurs were at sixes and sevens in the first half with our pressing. Second half the lads couldn't keep up the intensity which can be expected and this allowed Spurs to srretch us.

{Ed001's Note - but they didn't even try and press in the 2nd half, so it can't be about running out of steam immediately. It was a tactical change. It is not even difficult to see, the team set up differently, players deeper which makes it impossible to press.}

6.) 10 Feb 2018 12:20:20
Would love to see the lad get a chance, just hope fans don't turn on him for not being ready made from the get go.

7.) 10 Feb 2018 12:22:14
Lallana and Moreno also seemed to be in the hi-vis yellow bibs that Woodburn, Salah, Firmino and Mane were wearing.

100% guessing though lads. I would love to see Woodburn get a start though.

8.) 10 Feb 2018 12:41:41
Saw and thought the same thing MK!

Would be very surprised to see him though, he hasn't even made the bench in recent weeks.

Fingers crossed though.

9.) 11 Feb 2018 11:35:03
Agree completely that we just changed focus and tactics in 2nd half. My worry is that with the likes of Hendo, Can, Gini, Ox, and Milner, none of them are naturally defensive minded mids. I don't mean a CDM, just that their natural styles are dynamic box to box types ye. So when we try to play deep like we did vs spurs or in other cases when we try and contain a game, we are fighting against our own players natural instincts!

Case in point being the number of times we've seen Milner, Can and even Hendo fly up to press only to get turned so easily leaving our defence exposed. We just don't seem to have a CM who will sit Marshall his CM partnered and keep the ball in front of them. Our midfield is like turnstiles all game! Its not been a new thing too, we were like this under BR and definitely in Klopp's first 3/ 4 season in charge. I thought we had turned a lead around a 1/ 4 way thru this season where we seemed to play controlled but then we've reverted back to type.

My point is, and as mentioned by others, sorting out our midfield is as important to address this off-season. We've almost specialised in turning attacking mids into roles that require more specific defensive duties. Long term I think we will always battle this same problem until we recruit CMs who have a natural eye for the defensive side of the game. doesn't need to be CDM just someone who can apply the tactics of that deeper CM position.

Always wanted Ndidi, but don't know if we are interested in him. In any case I hope we address is it, I think it will really help Hendo, can (if he stays), Gini etc to play their natural games and hopefully improve their performances too.



29 Jan 2018 18:54:21
Evening all.

Ed001, with the Studge loan looking likely, do you think we'll see a bit more of Solanke and or even Young Woodburn for a few games?



{Ed001's Note - Studge was gone anyway, Ings has already replaced him in the squad. Not sure why it would make a difference if he goes on loan.}

1.) 29 Jan 2018 19:10:58
Sturridge going on loan is not going to change anything as he was not in Klopp's plans and was struggling for playing time. Ings and Solanke will be back up with Mane, Firmino and Salah our first choice front three.

Woodburn is far from ready and way down the pecking order behind Solanke and Ings.

2.) 29 Jan 2018 19:15:56
Fair enough, not really been keeping up with what’s happening with Studge, just read tonight WBA is liking the likely destination.

Hopefully Ings can can get a couple of goals under his belt .

Evening ed001.

Showing my ignorance here.

Demirbay? Any good and would he be a first team starter? What positron?!



{Ed001's Note - not seen him play that I can remember sorry.}

The club knew Couthino wanted out for a while, I just hope there was/ is a plan in place and it’s just not delivered as yet. Whilst his form may have dilpped, a fully fit, focused PC would be missed from any team and we clearly missed that last night. Must be patient though and not just buy for the sake of it.

Some mentioning Sanchez, serious cash and salary involved but he will push them on a notch without doubt.

The last time we won the FA Cup was back in 2006 then the League cup in 2012 and the League?

Players want to win trophies as well as being well paid, if we are not successful players will leave, as we’ve seen time after time.

Swish. I’ve not said they are being sold for the money.

We haven’t won a trophy in years and are no where near challenging for the league. Top players want to win trophies and be paid a big salary, something we simply cannot offer as it stands, this is my point!

1987, Littlewoods Cup final, my second trip to Wembley, my first Wembley outing being 86 when we beat Everton 3-1 in the FA Cup.

We played Arsenal and lost 2-1, Rushey scored the opener and when ever Rush scored first we went onto win, not this time and the duck was broken. Charlie Nicholas scored twice for the Gunners.

1989 was also a tough one to swallow, losing to Arsenal once again, seconds to go Barnes received the ball out on the left and loses possession to Kevin Richardson, the rest is history :- ( - To be fair, the kop stayed intact and gave Arsenal the applause.

I grew up watching Liverpool in the 80’s and whilst the game has moved in with regards to pace etc, the art of defending set pieces and playing the ball out from the back hasn’t changed. Lawro and Hansen were a fantastic partnership at the back, Ian Rush defended from the front.
