Fulham interested in signing Matip in January from what I've been reading.

EpicPotato

1.) 15 Nov 2018 10:41:53
I automatically thought of that post ed001 made recently when a team bought a player for meat.
Matip for a pack of bacon anyone?


2.) 15 Nov 2018 12:58:49
Makes sense for Fulham. But I don't know if we will let him go. We don’t have Klavan anymore, and unless we bring someone in I don’t see us letting our fourth choice CB go.


3.) 15 Nov 2018 13:44:42
Those were my thoughts exactly Klopping. I suppose it depends on how much we could sell him for, and if we could get in someone who was an upgrade and happy to be 4th choice CB for the same or less.

I don't know what his wages are, but I'd imagine them being higher than normal for his quality, considering we signed him on a free transfer.


4.) 15 Nov 2018 13:54:03
27 Years old and for a Fulham team desperate for defenders could see us get a tidy sum for Matip. Would be interesting to see who we would get for 4th choice. Maybe Nat Phillips?


5.) 15 Nov 2018 16:55:13
Swap for sessagnon and it's a deal.


6.) 15 Nov 2018 18:41:34
Walkon, you don't run a car dealership anywhere do you? Cos I'd like to swap a 14 year old MG for a new Merc.

Joking aside, I don't want to be down on our own players, but it doesn't make much sense that Fulham would want Matip. They need a solid defender and leader at the back. Matip isn't really that player, he's arguably better with the ball than without it.


7.) 15 Nov 2018 19:21:51
Something Red, but he's a lot better than the defenders they currently have and also possibly available due to how little game time he gets currently. I can see why they'd be interested. If he started his career there the same way he started his Liverpool career, he'd be a revelation for their defence.

I remembered when he first played, a lot of people on here were praising him like crazy.


8.) 15 Nov 2018 20:23:33
Could happen if the stories about the kid tobido are true maybe?


9.) 16 Nov 2018 00:13:51
Sessegnon hasn’t looked ready this season, he’s best to stay at Fulham where he gets premier league game time.


10.) 18 Nov 2018 01:58:51
I'd happily play Nat Phillips as fourth choice over Matip.

Matip doesn't look confident at all and is too slow for PL and the high line style we play. He's also on something like £70k/ week if I remember well. Not a bad option to sell. I actually used to like Klavan better. Just my opinion.


 

 

10 Nov 2018 15:36:47
Nice want to sign Simon Mignolet in January. Any truth to this? And if it happens, are there any ideas about what we'd do in regards to a no. 2?

EpicPotato

1.) 11 Nov 2018 16:26:47
Great question, who's even available as a number 2? Reina moved to Milan in the summer, but he might have been a shout.

Anyone know how Grabara is progressing?


2.) 11 Nov 2018 17:03:30
It would be a Nice deal for Migs.


3.) 11 Nov 2018 20:06:48
Surely Tom Heaton should be worth a shout. It depends if he's searching for first team football though. Surely you'd be more proud being backup for Alisson, than backup to Joe Hart, haha.


4.) 12 Nov 2018 05:44:09
I like Heaton but I don't think he'd suit our style. A fantastic shotstopper a couple of seasons ago, but can he come in for when Alisson's out and play a high line and sweep up?


5.) 12 Nov 2018 13:46:54
I don't agree with signing a new number 2 in January, nor handing the No. 2 slot to one of two 19 year olds (Kelleher and Grabara) . Best option is to stay with Mignolet until the summer, and find a serious No. 2. He may want out now, the coaching staff may want him out, and a lot of of the fans want him out also, but the potential downside is huge if Alisson is unable to play due to injury or illness.


6.) 12 Nov 2018 17:06:38
Buffon! Butland! Navas!


7.) 12 Nov 2018 23:42:23
Nice legs shame about the face.


8.) 12 Nov 2018 23:43:28
Ra is correct, people don't take number 2's as serious as they should until we're in sh*t street then suddenly it matters. God forbid Alisson got injured then we have to pile all the pressure on one of the youngsters who clearly aren't ready? nah that's not good for them nor is it good for the club. I agree, keep Migs until summer and then look at getting somebody who is capable to come in when needed.

If Kelleher and Grabara make it with us which let's be honest, it's a big if then we're looking at a few years down the line imo (they have plenty of time to impress) . Alisson is here long term, what chance do they have really?


9.) 13 Nov 2018 21:35:39
We have our man James Milner to put in a shift in goal if need be!


 

 

14 Sep 2018 20:13:29
Liverpool have signed Holland Youth International Ki-Jana Hoever from Ajax. The deal was agreed to sign him earlier in the summer but he just got international clearance yesterday to play for Liverpool competitively.

He's a right back that can also play in the centre of defense. He apparently comes with a big reputation in Holland.

EpicPotato

1.) 15 Sep 2018 06:25:57
Welcome to Liverpool lad!


2.) 15 Sep 2018 15:11:40
With him, Neco Williams and Arroyo we've somee serious talent coming through in that position.


3.) 24 Sep 2018 22:38:04
He is a centre back . Straight from the horses mouth.


 

 

04 Jun 2018 19:18:23
About our backup winger. We're saying Dembele would be too expensive for backup and wouldn't want to be on the bench. We're saying Wilson isn't up to scratch, and we're saying Woodburn is too young.

What's happening with Lazar Markovic? We can't sign any quality as they don't want to be backup. We already have a player that was mooted as the next big thing 3 years ago. Has he improved at all? Could he fill in as backup? Or is he just nowhere near good enough?

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - Malkovich is to be sold but money is the issue at present. His time at Liverpool has been an expensive - much more expensive than people realise - disaster.}


1.) 04 Jun 2018 20:29:06
Eds2 I understand maybe Liverpools worst financial investment.


2.) 04 Jun 2018 20:34:23

4.) 04 Jun 2018 23:17:14
could you explain what you mean by that ed002? just curious about how it was so costly.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained before but there was a side contract for image rights that was crippling.}


 

 

06 May 2018 20:29:50
I've seen several posts asking for a backup for Salah/ Mane. The likes of Arnautovic and Shaqiri have been mentioned, neither of which good enough, young enough and won't want to be on the bench.

My choice would be Brighton's Anthony Knockheart. He's skillful, fast, really works his socks off and I've not heard of any attitude problems (like I've heard about the other two) . I also think he'd be happy to be on the bench for a big club and prove himself and/ or be cover.

What do you think?

I think he'd fit in really well to Klopp's system.

EpicPotato

1.) 06 May 2018 21:16:38
I do rate knockaert but I’d rather go for izqueirdo because of his sheer ice and dribbling ability. He would fit better in our system imo.


2.) 06 May 2018 22:05:14
Pace not ice*.


3.) 06 May 2018 22:39:19
I said last season that we should go and sign Zaha and Pieters from stoke. klopp could then either rotate front four or drop mane into midfield Pieters would be a good back up for Robbo. I'm afraid Moreno isnt.


4.) 07 May 2018 01:58:18
Arnautovic not good enough but Knockaert is?


5.) 07 May 2018 05:49:35
Langland- you said last season that Pieters would be a good backup for Robbo? We didn’t even have Robbo last season.


6.) 07 May 2018 08:16:48
That's actually a good choice. Will he be willing to come with limited playing time? .


7.) 07 May 2018 08:37:13
Not good enough on the ball to play in our system! Aurnatovic is ok!


8.) 07 May 2018 10:06:02
Well it's certainly divided opinion.

No name and Cobra666: I was referring to the fact that Arnautovic wouldn't want to be backup or have to prove his place in the side, wheras Knockheart is young enough and I also think flexible enough.


9.) 07 May 2018 14:43:53
Cobra666
I said last season that we should sign Pieters and Zaha.
We didn't sign either.
We should sign them this season.
Pieters would be a good back up for Robbo and if ever Salah leaves we should play Pieters a faint him.
Zaha would be a brill addition. Proven premiership and Klopp could make him a better player.

{Ed001's Note - oh yes buy dross to take us forward to a new Hodgson era. Great.}


10.) 07 May 2018 15:44:09
I personally think he’s too inconsistant and feel like we’ve took a big step in our quality of recruitment in the last 18 months, would like to think we wouldn’t take a backwards step targeting mediocre players again. An attacking midfielder capable of playing in the front 3 is what I thinks best, then we can both rotate them and have them all starting when needed. Abit like how coutinho was used in the first half of this season.


11.) 07 May 2018 17:20:15
TIA19. Inconsistency is what you often get with young players. Just them when they have a good game and when they're having a bad day, if they're still giving 100% (but just not quite pulling it off) and that's enough for me. On his good days, he's absolutely quality. He really gave Man Utd's defence a surprise and something to think about.

Consistency can be coached. The raw talent can't.

I really hope I'm not shooting us in the foot here. Touch wood he doesn't have a blinder against us next Sunday. Haha.


12.) 07 May 2018 19:41:17
Shaquiri? Anautovic? Zaha? Good grief, what is going on here? As Ed said, these guys are not good enough to even be the backup to our backups. Instead of these guys, I would just stick with Harry Wilson and the other kids. Like Epic, I do like Knockaerts and to some extent Izquierdo even tho, they may still be raw.


13.) 07 May 2018 22:18:38
I think Redmond from Southampton would be a good shout to cover both wings.


14.) 08 May 2018 12:39:45
Haha, come on Ed001 surely, a 29 year old Championship left back with one assist in 29 games is the answer to our prayers. Knockaert and Izquierdo are decent players but not really good enough for Liverpool and the premium on Premier League players means we'd get better value elsewhere. And good grief another Redmond fan. Please give it up, he is just pants. Is it because he scored a goal on Saturday? You know that's his first all season? He's not even good enough for Southampton and Harry Wilson is already a better player than Redmond.

{Ed001's Note - Redmond has been awful all season.}


15.) 08 May 2018 18:02:26
Redmond? Yikes!

Shaqiri starts. Milner drops to the bench. It'll be interesting to see Shaq play a full game.

EpicPotato

1.) 22 Sep 2018 14:19:06
Attacking enough lineup for everyone?


2.) 22 Sep 2018 15:28:40
Very attacking, not even playing well and 2 up. Happy days.


3.) 22 Sep 2018 15:55:10
Fair play to klopp starting Shaqiri in midfield. I didn’t see it coming but it made real sense knowing that Southampton would try to hold back and stifle us. that’s why he’s managing us tho and I’m not lol. Shaqiri playing well in that position 👍👍👍.


4.) 22 Sep 2018 16:04:27
Shaq subbed at HT. Strange, thought he did well and he hardly needs a rest.


5.) 22 Sep 2018 16:11:05
Agreed. Why take him off at half time? He set up two goals and did nothing wrong!


6.) 22 Sep 2018 16:59:32
Perhaps he plans on playing him on Wednesday.


7.) 22 Sep 2018 17:35:53
Plenty of our team have played 2 games in a row and more, surely blood the players in now for the long season ahead, strange one to me.


8.) 22 Sep 2018 17:40:15
Definitely he was thinking of Wednesday with fabinho and Keita will probably start.


9.) 22 Sep 2018 17:49:43
Wasn't medical asvice? I've read somewhere it was slight injury.

{Ed0333's Note - Not according to Klopp post match interview.


10.) 22 Sep 2018 17:50:48
One would assume he's planning to rest the regular front three in midweek and will probably rely on Shaq for creativity in that game.


11.) 22 Sep 2018 18:13:06
Also, klopp took him off while he was playing well. Gave shaq a sniff and has left him wanting more. Left the fans wanting more. The substitution didn't result on us losing our foothold in the game. Maybe klopp thinks shaq needs to up his fitness a bit too.

We won, more of our new players involved. It's all good.


12.) 22 Sep 2018 18:47:10
I think we'll definitely see him on Wednesday. What a peach of a free kick that was that lead to Salah's goal. Absolute magic strike.


13.) 22 Sep 2018 20:04:39
Shaqiri coming off was definitely tactical, Southampton were getting so much room down our left hand side first half and some of their delivery into the box was very good. The game was over by half time and the only way Southampton were getting back into it was if we did something silly. Milner is far better defensively than Shaqiri.


 

 

01 Sep 2018 11:53:54
Henderson starts. Naby Keita dropped to the bench.

If PAOK beat Benfica over the two legs in the CL qualifiers, would Liverpool still go into Pot 2, or did that ship sail when Benfica beat Fenerbahce?

EpicPotato

1.) 21 Aug 2018 14:50:16
I think benfica actually have to be in the group stages so they have to go through for liverpool to be bumped to pot 3.

+1 for Wolverine.


3.) 21 Aug 2018 18:58:13
Why is this an issue for people? Did you not see the way we played against the top teams in Europe last season? I'm pretty confident in saying that a lot of teams will be worried about getting us in the groups.


4.) 21 Aug 2018 16:41:29
Thanks Wolverine. I'll be a PAOK fan for a week or two then :)


 

 

29 Jul 2018 20:39:17
Hi Eds and reds.

I'm asking as I have a couple of friends who support them.

Why is Preston North End never a destination we see any of our loanees go to. They're a solid unit, play decent football in the final third and pretty much always exceed wveryone's expectiations on how well they do. They're also very local to Liverpool, making it easy to keep track of their progress.

I just find it a little strange that they are never mentioned as a potential loan destination.

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool is only know trying to break out of a random and last minute approach to unplanned loans. Preston like any other side could express and interest in players and then the club can look at the options for individual players. Eventually the club will look to building relationships with other sides that can be beneficial to both.}


1.) 29 Jul 2018 20:45:58
Thanks for the reply Ed002. I just thought it would be one of the clubs we'd like to be in cahoots with. They're not a big club financially, so every season they always have a few loanees that do well.

{Ed002's Note - To be honest I don’t know enough about PNE Eric. The good news is that the club do seem to be taking baby steps toward addressing one of the shortcomings.}


2.) 29 Jul 2018 20:55:10
Sorry ed, are you saying we now seem to have some sort of plan/ foundations of a plan regarding loans and our fringe/ young players?

Can you see us following the Chelsea model and building a relationship similar to the one they have with Vitesse?

{Ed002's Note - Certainly Liverpool are starting to move in that direction. It will take along time.}


3.) 29 Jul 2018 22:28:43
Ed002 I personally think the Chelsea model is a good one. As there is a structure and a plan for the players. How long did it take Chelsea to get it running?

{Ed002's Note - Perhaps four years and it has been running to a similar concept for perhaps 7 or 8 years.}


4.) 29 Jul 2018 22:44:11
Liverpool had an arrangement with KRC Genk in Belgium from 2010-2014 but it never seemed to develop as expected. African and South American players that signed for Liverpool were to be loaned to Genk where it was easier to get work permits. Such an arrangement would be ideal with players like Allan and Awoniyi (who coincidently has been loaned to KAA Gent) .

{Ed002's Note - That is because there was no viable plan.}


5.) 29 Jul 2018 23:07:46
Interesting thread on the loan aspect of the club, great insight as ever Ed002.

I’ve always wondered the same epic when it comes to loanees and Preston. Would seem like a great choice at the moment with there current manager and playing style.


 

 

17 Jul 2018 22:00:36
I've said it before, but I'll say it again. If we sign Fekir, Fabinho will play right back. There's no room for three new midfielders and whenever a team tries it, it doesn't work. If (and it's definitely an IF) . It'll be Fekir, Hendo, Keita in midfield. TAA will be backup to Fabinho.

EpicPotato

1.) 17 Jul 2018 22:06:54
One or two will leave. Lallana and wijnaldum most likey to leave out of the midfield.
If our options are Fabinho, Hendo, Keita, Milner, Fekir and Ox then that’s strong. Potentially lallana still there too.
But Fabinho won’t be playing right back unless we’re down to bare bones.


2.) 17 Jul 2018 22:16:11
There is no way we spent 42 million for a rb to replace our current done nothing wrong but gone from strength to strength boy in Trent 🤣

Keita and fabinho start, fekir does not.

He will Be eased in.


3.) 17 Jul 2018 22:37:41
Is that because of his fragile ACL, Kloppsboss?

😉.


4.) 17 Jul 2018 22:41:31
All about depth for me. Fabinho and Hendo at CDM, Keita and Ox box to Box. Fekir and Lallana ACM. Can gone, Wini and maybe Milner to leave, Grujic going on loan. Chirivella and Woodburn nowhere near the first team yet. Allan no work permit. Seems pretty a pretty reasonable midfield to me. Maybe I’m wrong but I doubt we would of bought a 40mil plus player to play in a position that he hasn’t been for the entire last season, or recently as far as I know even if he can do it. Again maybe I’m wrong on that but It would be like buying Bale to play left back. I would like to see TAA continue at RB and and Gomez cover, but also for Gomez to get some chances at CB. Let’s notbforget though we still have Clyne!


5.) 17 Jul 2018 22:48:52
Hahaha don't get him started Zed lol!


6.) 18 Jul 2018 05:32:16
We have plenty of games to accommodate playing them all, our midfield always got changed even without injuries, now we have the option of playing several different midfield formations.

Also, We lost Can and Coutinho - Fabinho and potentially Fekir are the replacements.

Gini and/ or Lallana could leave too but as it stands we have 0 extra midfielders from the first half of last season.

If we do sign fekir, we only have 1 extra that’s providing both Gini and lallana stay. If 1 leaves we break even again and if both leave we are down 1 midfielder.

*not including any youths that could break through this season.


7.) 18 Jul 2018 06:43:59
I don’t think we’re still interested in Fekir.

I met him at the "Conti" club in Liverpool in the later days of his playing career. Having had a few shandies, the first words to come out of my mouth were, "Hey John, you're not as fat as you look on the telly". He just laughed and said "Thanks mate". My claim to fame, lol.

I thought Matip has a decent game today. Pretty much faultless apart from the incident where Van Dijk had to run in and block the shot that was on Matip's side. I do like how he comes out with the ball from the back too. It's is clear why he's also been played in the DM role before.

Gianluigi Lentini. He was absolutely amazing then had a really bad car crash when he was 24. He was just never the same afterwards.

At the time, he was the world's most expensive player when he moved from Torino to AC Milan.
