I've just seen an article linking us with Ryan Fraser. I know a few other big clubs have been monitoring him (Arsenal, Chelsea, Man U, Everton) .

Are we now in the running for him? Also, wasn't he this season highest chance creator? (And yes, I'm aware that it's quantity and not quality of chances) .

I was just wondering if anyone else knew anything about this.

These rumours been going around for a few days. Yes I think after Hazard was top assists. I have never really watched him much and think there are better options out there.

Arsenal favourites to sign him.


2.) 24 May 2019 17:51:20
I don't think we have any serious interest in him, more effective as a winger then a CAM. I wouldn't be surprised to see Arsenal or Spurs make a move, though probably as a second choice or if their budget is stretched thin from picking up a couple players.

Ed002 said he hadn't heard anything about a Liverpool offer but mentioned him as a possible target on the arsenal page and said "Ryan Fraser (LW) has the advantage of being home grown".


3.) 24 May 2019 18:00:27
I’m not sure on the stat, but if he created a chance, I think it’s like created a shot, so I think that denotes quality. Maybe with a more clinical striker he would have got more assists. Again, it’s a stat that looks good, but means very little.

I think mane got three assists this year, and 22 goals. That would suggest he is selfish. but he’s far from it.


4.) 24 May 2019 18:48:58
We could do a lot worse imo, looked good this season when I watched him.


5.) 24 May 2019 18:48:58
Thanks for your replies, guys.

He certainly doesn't sound like the worst player we could be linked with. And if he's a left sided winger he'd offer a good rotation option considering that Mane played on the right before we signed Salah.

I guess it's just a "wait and see".


6.) 24 May 2019 18:58:11
He had a fantastic season, always remember him coming on against us and turning the game in their favour when they beat us 4-3!

Don't know if he has the quality we need but seems a Klopp type of player with pace to burn and good work ethic.


7.) 24 May 2019 22:23:10
Bit of a Liverpool fan as well by all accounts.


8.) 25 May 2019 01:23:10
I'd be happy to get Fraser he's a pest and would buy into the work rate that Jurgen demands also played with Robertson at international level . He's certainly got something about him on the pitch and doesn't seem to have a massive ego.


9.) 25 May 2019 06:01:34
Can anyone name a player we've been linked with who isn't a 'Liverpool fan'?

{Ed025's Note - gareth bale..


10.) 25 May 2019 09:10:59
Reminds me of the transfer of Charlie Adam. I'd look else where.


11.) 25 May 2019 11:09:23
magico. Because he's Scottish?

He's nothing like Charlie Adam in any way apart from that.


12.) 25 May 2019 13:54:42
About the same level if you ask me. hardly stands out in an average team. so in my opinion he isn't good enough. Each to their own.


13.) 25 May 2019 16:17:30
Descent player.


14.) 25 May 2019 21:08:56
Could be a all Scottish left side with and robbo and Fraser, be excellent edition to our squad at a reasonable price.


15.) 26 May 2019 04:46:12
I wouldn't mind him. He'd be like Robbo, Milner and Hendo when it comes to work rate and not being a flashy player but getting the job done.

If the price is right then why not :)


16.) 26 May 2019 12:52:52
Ryan frazior has been a phenomenon for Bournemouth this season. He deserves a move to a big club. I think he would suit our style well but id expect a higher profile attacking mid if we sign one. Arsenal bound sounds aboit right.


 

 

23 May 2019 09:09:13
Good Morning All.

The Echo are reporting that we're close to signing 16 year old Polish Goalkeeper, Jakub Ojrzynski from Legia Warsaw for £200,000.

I know it's no big name or even anywhere near the first team, but a rumour is a rumour, right?

If true, he must be deemed pretty good considering that our current academy goalies are already at a decent standard.

EpicPotato

1.) 23 May 2019 10:22:02
Although much is expected of him, he's being bought to join the under 18s as competition to Jaros.


2.) 23 May 2019 14:21:58
I uh don't think he will get q good opportunity with us unless Alisson leaves. he is 26 now he will play till 34 maybe at really high level by that time the kid will have left us and become 26 year so i wouldn't read much into it. and ed02 has de ligt deal hit a snag? sorry if im being a bother. i understand he won't end up with us. i hope he ends up at Barcelona or madrid or psg nd not in england.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the deal with de Ligt.}


3.) 23 May 2019 14:54:08
Think we need to De Ligt that question livebird, we all know that he is not coming Klopp isn’t interested.

Re goalkeepers, we don’t know what will happen in 5 years time, Allison may want to move somewhere else, it’s all about planning for the future.


4.) 23 May 2019 15:26:11
I like what you did there southern😂, that pun was DELigtful.


5.) 24 May 2019 09:37:23
You guys have a DeLigtable sense of humour.

The first time I've heard of this linked player.

I've just read that we're interested in bringing in Norwich defender Ben Godfrey for £10m.

Anyone know anything about him or seen him play?

EpicPotato

Liverpool are monitoring midfielder Khéphren Thuram (Lillian Thuram's son) at Monaco. He hasn't signed a pro contract yet with Monaco.

Has anyone seen anything of him, or know how highly he is rated? He's a France U21 international, but that's all I know.

EpicPotato

1.) 21 Feb 2019 18:12:34
* France U18.

He is just a young prospect who's fathers name is causing some media attention.

from what i have heard he is not considered a top talent!


2.) 21 Feb 2019 18:43:41
Kinda hard to judge a 17 year old unless they're ridiculously talented for their age and already playing senior footie at a decent level.


3.) 21 Feb 2019 21:22:55
Thuram or not Thuram, that is the question 🧐.


4.) 23 Feb 2019 14:21:18
👀 . You're slipping Zed.


 

 

31 Jan 2019 17:39:24
I've just read on BBC's deadline day updates that Ben Woodburn isn't going back out on loan.

I find that a bit strange, as surely his minutes will be limited in our first team squad.

EpicPotato

1.) 31 Jan 2019 19:50:45
He was doing well training and playing under the Liverpool system of play, at whichever level. Maybe that's what he needs more of, in order to develop and grow rather than go elsewhere, learn a new system and just sit on the bench? Guess it's a decision made by the coaching staff and they think something along these lines.


2.) 31 Jan 2019 20:17:10
He could have a macheda moment for us.


3.) 31 Jan 2019 20:52:58
Klopp said he wouldn't go anywhere unless there were game time guarantees. Rightly so. Woodburn might as well fight for a place in our team, rather than someone else's. Klopp said he got impatient before, so hopefully Ben realises now that loan moves are not beneficial 9 times out of 10. He should stay at Liverpool where he can learn from world class players and coaches.


4.) 31 Jan 2019 21:04:43
I would rather see Woodburn come on for the last 20 minutes of the game than Lallana.


5.) 01 Feb 2019 05:37:24
I think we are anyway short off alternatives to Mane on the left inside-forward role, which is where Woodburn plays from. I am hoping to see him get some minutes off the bench over the rest of the season. Fingers crossed for the lad - if even one of him and Brewster come good over the next 12 months or so, it will be a big win for us as a club.


6.) 01 Feb 2019 09:35:53
Dont see Woodburn or Brewster getting any game time this season. The club look to be taking it slow to get brewster ready for a good preseaon and it seems to be that klopp prefers to have the older players like Sturridge and Lallana in the matchday squads.

If it was up to me if they are training well I would give them a shot off the bench, up to them to take the the chance as at the moment Sturridge and Lallana are not taking there chance from the bench.


7.) 03 Feb 2019 14:51:32
I think Brewster will go on to be a good player for us but I can't see woodburn making it, not good enough IMO.

Congrats to Marko Grujic for scoring against Bayern Munich AWAY and helping earn Berlin a point against them. Never saw that coming.

EpicPotato

1.) 16 Aug 2019 23:45:21
A very good first half from Grujic, but he struggled to keep up with the speed of the game in the second half and conceded the penalty leading to Bayern’s equalizer. A good learning experience for him.


2.) 17 Aug 2019 09:55:24
Grujic is very talented, IMO. He just has to be able to grow and do all the other stuff that professional football at the highest levels require cos clearly, talent alone is NOT going to cut it.


3.) 17 Aug 2019 10:38:19
Hes never going to make it at Liverpool and we all know it but good luck to the lad.


 

 

31 Jul 2019 13:55:37
Klopp nominated for Men's coach of the year.

Obviously Pep and Poch are also nominated as is Erik ten Haag of Ajax.

Also the coaches of teams that won international honours are nominated: Didier Deschamps (France), Fernando Santos (Portugal), Tite (Brazil) and Djamel Belmadi (Algeria) .

Good luck Jurgen.

EpicPotato

1.) 31 Jul 2019 14:25:41
Given possible unrest in knowing key players were leaving I reckon, EVT had a superb season IMO. Not taking away the fact I'd want Klopp tonwin it of course but credit where credit is due.


2.) 31 Jul 2019 14:26:01
EVH* typo.


3.) 31 Jul 2019 14:26:46
ETH* BLOOMIN ECK!


4.) 31 Jul 2019 16:10:29
Was Poch nominated as a cruel joke as to where he might have been if he'd won anything in his career? He has had longer than Klopp plus he started with a better team too, and Klopp still beat him to a trophy.

Not having this myth that Spurs don't spend either. Net spend is a logical falacy. They've spent a fortune on the likes of Son, Wanyama, Sissoko, Foyth, Lamela, Moura, Sanchez, Dier, Alli, Janssen, Lloriente, Aurier, Davies and now Ndombele. I'm sure i've missed some off too. Sure some were good value deals but others were right up there at the time of spending and they all add up to a hefty total.

He's over rated. They came 3rd in a two horse race the other year and last season they came 4th in a 3 horse race. He's a joke who can't even maintain pressure effectively. Now he's moaning about transfers again when he should just get on with it like Klopp has. If he's such a good coach he'll get the best out of the players he has. Maybe then he'll stop under achieving and deserve these nominations.


5.) 31 Jul 2019 16:35:16
I didn't make the list Plain Bread. Don't shoot the messenger.

I'm pretty sure it's because in the CL, they unexpectedly qualified from a group they looked destined to be out of, and then reached the final anyway. The players that you listed all signed over 12 months ago (Ndombele aside) and isn't that the period on which they're being judged?

It's irrelevant anyway. Poch has as much chance of winning it as the manager of Algeria does.


6.) 31 Jul 2019 16:55:01
Pochettino and many spurs fans seem to have developed a nasty dislike of being compared to Liverpool over recent seasons due to the managers not winning trophies and now klopp has beaten them to ol big ears it will only get worse. They should enjoy the fact they are playing good football, being competitive and have an amazing new stadium.

{Ed025's Note - the only comparison to liverpool is that they have both won the premier league the same amount of times 1jj...0.. :)


7.) 31 Jul 2019 17:22:54
Thanks Ed025. Screenshotted.


 

 

31 Jul 2019 12:43:27
I know that there's probably the perfectly normal "sports science" answer to this.

After seeing lots of photo's of the lads training, why are half of them wearing black bras?

EpicPotato

{Ed047's Note - it carries a smart GPS tracker, normally in a pocket on the back of the vest (bra) from that the club get a multitude of data to help with fitness, reduce injury, specialised training for specific players, sprints, heat maps on so on.

Oh and to see whose winging it!


1.) 31 Jul 2019 12:59:34
Thank you Ed047.

I knew that there'd be a perfectly good explanation for it. You can probably understand that not knowing it's purpose was a little baffling.

{Ed047's Note - I’m sure there’s lots more they do as these things improve all the time and I’m sure I asked myself first time I saw them.

The only difference in them is Bobby F likes a front fastening, Hendo a see through one and VVD likes the half cup look. 😉


2.) 31 Jul 2019 13:41:31
I knew Hendo was a kinky tart!


 

 

28 Jul 2019 12:31:26
For probably the first time in history, the BBC football page has pictures of two players as their two main story and both of them have man buns. (Elliott signing for us, and Bale going to China) .

I hope this isn't a sign of things to come.

EpicPotato

1.) 28 Jul 2019 12:56:36
Elliott is forgivable, he’s a young lad and young lads make mistakes. Bale on the other hand is a 30 year old man trying to hide a bald patch.


2.) 28 Jul 2019 14:12:37
Bale is not going to China. What a mess areal have created in this one. Makes it less likely to go after Mane this summer anyway 👍.


3.) 28 Jul 2019 14:35:10
1jj. I've just seen that Bale's move is off now. Absolute madness. I think that is going to set ripples off about a lot of transfers not happening now. Pogba being the obvious one, but it might also mean that Milinkovic-Savic to Man Utd will likely be off too as he was going to be Pogba's replacement.


4.) 28 Jul 2019 14:42:17
Real are stuck with a player that no team wants, at least at the fee they want or the wages he’s after.

I guess it's a " " scenario. Klopp wants him for the League Cup but Kane is still hoping to go out on loan for his development.

I can't blame the lad. If we go far in the League cup, he'll lose his place to more experienced squad players and if we don't, he's stayed to play 1 or 2 games.

Southern Red. That will only be possible if he moves abroad.

Also, I expect Pompey to do well this season, plus they're also a step up from Doncaster Rovers. Why is a team going for promotion from League One better than a team not expecting to progress (or even fighting for survival) from The Championship?

Pepe will start for the first time and he's the anomaly in all this. They're also an enigma at the back. I really rate David Luiz but it obviously depends on if he turns up with his defensive head or his crazy head. I've no doubts that it will be a great game.

EpicPotato

{Ed0666's Note - I don’t think they’re an anomaly at the back Epic I think they are just plain shi*. If we can’t beat a team with a defense that poor then we don’t deserve to win the game.

I used to use the Kodi free channels. I remember watching LFC Vs QPR (yes it was a while ago) and I watched the first half on a Kazakhstani channel and at half time tried to find some English commentary.

I found and American stream. About 5 minutes into the second half I heard "That was amazing play from Daniel Sturridge in the offensive zone". I then switched back to the Kazkhastani channel.

I think a lot more is being made of it than is necessary to be honest. It's just that is disallowed a last minute goal for the current champions which makes it a hot topic.

Seriously, how many goals are scored where an attacking player handles the ball? Not many. Also, I have to admit, if Laporte hadn't have handballed it, it wouldn't have changed direction into Jesus' path, so by the letter of the law, it's the right decision. I I just think we are overestimating how many times that particular scenario will happen over the season.
