Eds, what's the play with young Allan Rodriguez. What are the chances he gets his permit next season. Are the club wanting to fight to keep him?


{Ed001's Note - the club would love to keep him, it is most likely he gets another loan move next season.}

1.) 19 Apr 2017 12:39:57
How good is he eds? Not seen much of him. Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - he is highly rated by the club and in Germany.}

2.) 19 Apr 2017 22:00:11
i know i was surprised that he managed to get loaned to a german team in the top league.

What would you say is the reason for him not getting much game time is it literally a case of him just not what the manager wants in his starting 11?

{Ed001's Note - he is young, still getting used to the country and not really ready to be a regular starter.}

Away from home for work this week sitting in hotel and have brought myself to watch ESPN press pass. They are debating the pros and cons of reducing the game to 60 minutes, and Stevie Nicol has literally just said that this would disadvantage the likes of Celtics playing against Barcelona because Celtics needs to be able to waste time to win. He was actually making a serious points.

I mean I guess it's because football is played many different ways but surely this point is the worst of all haha anyway what do others think about this? For me it seems like we pay more for football these days but we don't necessarily get any more out of the game, what do you guys think?


1.) 04 Jul 2017 11:46:38
Put into consideration the wages of players and staff. they'd be getting paid ridiculous wages at unders 12s time length. its a no on my end.

2.) 04 Jul 2017 12:24:25
This change would also mean the amateurs/ sunday league teams will only play 60 mins aswell. I don't know how much amateur football you guy watch but a lot of teams win the league or games because they have more power towards the 80th min and can still press.

60min games is a change nobody needs/ wants. I don't even know why a sports outlet talks about that but i guess its because they are american (at least i think so) and the MLS is not that nice to watch and 60 min is enough for them.

{Ed002's Note - You misunderstand. What they mean is 60 minutes of playing time.}

3.) 04 Jul 2017 12:30:58
Human, you may have misunderstood the concept. The match length would barely change (it may even be longer) . Instead of 90 minutes covering both play and stoppages it would be 60 minutes of just play. The idea is to stop time wasting.

4.) 04 Jul 2017 12:47:15
Steve Nicol not the sharpest of tools, surely a shorter game would help the likes of Celtic- less time to hold out. The longer you play a team like Barcelona the more chances they will have to score.

5.) 04 Jul 2017 12:53:57
60 mins of ball in play then? Clock stopped whenever it's dead?

6.) 04 Jul 2017 13:18:03
Yes Welch that would be my assumption. I suppose like American sports where the clock basically stops most times that the ball is dead. if it can be applied consistently then I really think I could be worth a look. Would be really interesting to see it tested at an age grade tournaments and I think for the fun of it I might sit there with a stopwatch the next time I watch a match.

7.) 04 Jul 2017 13:48:17
That's what is being proposed, Welsh.
I believe also that the half only ends when the ball is off the field of play.
It seems fairer to me.



27 Jun 2017 14:26:06
Just regarding ox he would bring versatility, pace and power, prem / European / international experience and lots of room for him to improve in the areas many have pointed out are his flaws. One of which, his intelligence on the ball, to me is extremely unfair given his age and predominantly playing on the wing. If milner could barely transition from utility / winner to a Central midfield position in his late twenties to thirties, it surely is not a fair standard to be measuring the Ox against.


1.) 27 Jun 2017 15:42:37
Milner and ox arw like two peas in a pod.

Both tryers but never top level.

Ox is ok. that's it. Nothing special.

To put this crap to bed all arsenal have done is buy him out of the team.

Him and wilshire are garbage, and arsene knows it.

If you can't get keita whose the target then leave that position and see if he's avaluable next yesr and go and sign are next position of need in mendy.

2.) 27 Jun 2017 16:08:33
😂 😂 here comes the "he's potentially world class, he's young, he's this, he's that"
Sorry I've watched ox for years now and he's not good enough and will never be close to top class in any position because he simply doe not have the ability.
Keita clearly is highly unlikely but I'd rather wijnaldim continuing to progress in midfield than wasting 20 plus million on a player who will do nothing but add onto the wage bill.
I still think wijnaldim does not do enough on the pitch but the difference is he has a lot of ability. He's technically excellent. He also works hard and has improved.
Unfortunately being English, being relatively young and because klopp rates him magically confuses fans.
Let's not carry political correctness into football.
Form your own opinions. Klopps not a magician and has certainly bought poorly before.

3.) 27 Jun 2017 16:29:31
Spot on Super and Big Al. The description many are painting of the Ox simply does not match the player many of us have been watching for the past 4 years. They paint a pic of a player that does not exist and has never existed. He brings versatility, can run all day and the pother stuff. So what? We should then just sign him up for that.

He has limited ability unlike Wiji, Lallana, Hendo and even Grujic has more potential than him in CM. The fact that someone actually posted that, "Ox has more ability than Lallana" is the one that took the biscuit for me. He is overrated and has very little if any tactical or positional intelligence cos I have simply not seen any. The kid just ain't that special.

Cos Klopp rates him and cos he's English (another pathetic excuse) does not erase his poor record at Arsenal regardless of how the poor record came about. If Klopp can make him better and improve him then, I'll defer to him BUT let's not start painting a picture of a player that does not exist, to describe Ox.

4.) 27 Jun 2017 16:29:38
Funny because you said gini wasn't good enough and said he was a terrible signing too Big Al.

5.) 27 Jun 2017 16:44:20
People just need to trust Klopp. We were judging Wijaldum before he signed as well even the eds did and look how he worked out. I think the Ox will prove to be a very good player for us. I really like his attitude. From watching Arsenal last season he was one of the only players that never gave up. We need players with this mentality as we drop our heads far to often when we concede first. Plus I have been bombarding the eds with posts asking about adding depth for our wingers and he will be it now thank god.

6.) 27 Jun 2017 16:46:45
Afternoon all hope you are all well, in my opinion oxlade chamberlain is going to be playing more of a Lucas lieva role and in terms of quality I would say he has more than Lucas, he is also cover for the wings so upgrade all around if u ask me.

7.) 27 Jun 2017 17:07:11
Cyklopps, trusting Klopp is not the issue for me. My issue is that people are just making it out that Ox is some very good player who will improve us, something that is patently false IMO due to his poor record at Arsenal.

I criticized Klopp for signing Wiji cos I thought he had a poor attitude at Newcastle towards the end. Not once, did I question his ability as I already watched him play at the World Cup where he was brilliant as well as at Newcastle. Same with Mane. Ox does not have the ability Wiji, Hendo, Can and Lallana or IMO, the potential of Grujic to play in CM. That is just the reality. Now if Klopp wants him, then I will defer to him. To me, they are separate issues.

Joes, Ox to play the DM position that Lucas played at LFC? You have lost me there, bro.

8.) 27 Jun 2017 17:21:36
In all honesty Brussels you seem lost with the whole oxlade chamberlain transfer. In terms of midfield next season I expect there to be a lot of changing players round like can and ox swapping defensive and attacking roles same for Henderson and gini, formations will change aswell I expect but I'm mentioning Lucas because who else will leave from the centre other than Lucas?

9.) 27 Jun 2017 20:36:10
Joes, I'm not lost on anything. I am giving my opinion and you are free to disagree. Now regarding my response to you. You mentioned Lucas, saying Klopp may need Ox to play the Lucas role, if possible. How is that even possible whereas Ox is not and never will be a DM or a makeshift DM? That's all I'm asking as your posts are incoherent, seen that Ox is an attacking player and Lucas is a true DM.

10.) 27 Jun 2017 22:25:34
Brussels I respect your opinion but don't agree with it that's all, just think though Lucas was attacking midfielder before he joined Liverpool and plus did you ever think of Milner as a left back? Caulker as a forward? Believe it or not what I've heard and believe is oxlade chamberlain is being looked at for central midfield to do work at either end but as I also said to be swapped around with the other 4-5 out and out midfielders we already have.

11.) 28 Jun 2017 07:56:54
I think we are focusing far too much on what he can't do or hasn't developed yet. I'd understand if Ox was 30 but he has all his best years ahead of him and could be a great fit under Klopp's guidance. Ok it may be hard to see where he fits in the starting line-up, but isn't the point that we have guys in the squad who can push each other and compete for starting berth? I woild be careful about how we talk about such things, no one except stevie G before his last season and a half, demand a starting place on name alone.



07 Jun 2017 21:04:01
Presumably with Edwards in that role he will handle all negotiations and transfers. If that's not happening then it should be. Not because he is the right guy, but purely because of his position it is the right way to allocate the duties. Klopp shoild be focusing on football matters at the club, that is all. Will wait for more details, but it would not surprise if Klopp got his tongue flappin prematurely here. Would love to see the full story soon.!

A note about the eds. I think that some of ya need to keep in check the info we get. It is the best itk info we can get but my assumption is that because they are receiving info second-hand, that literally anything can happen between their inside knowledge and things happening. As evidenced today. don't blame the eds, its far more reliable and knowledgeable info we're privvy too than the rags. Kia kaha eds (stay strong eds)!


{Ed025's Note - at the top of the page you will see the words..TRANSFER RUMOURS faith, when we open a "set in stone" site it will be policed differently mate.. :)

1.) 07 Jun 2017 21:35:16
Im pretty sure klopp has nothing to do with transfer negotiations and is only involved in identifying targets.

2.) 07 Jun 2017 21:44:43
hi Ed025 I bet you can't stop laughing. I don't know what to think about this complete mess. Surely even we must have finally learned our lesson and this is the last time. I am not sure players will care too much about it.

I think we will spend £180m so just hope we invest it wisely and we might even call the selling club first.

{Ed025's Note - im taking no pleasure in it at all mark mate, liverpool have very passionate supporters who pay good money to support the club some i bet beyond their means, your right about it being a mess alright but these things tend to blow over..

3.) 07 Jun 2017 22:03:54
To be ed. Its sall good when someones mate got a taxi who had just picked up ian ayres wife who informed him that he couldn't pick her up because he was in rome for some reason.

But when someone comes on saying salag is 100% done. Vvd is done. Im not having a go but sure that doesn't count as a rumour anymore. Eseciallt when someone with maccas credibility says it.

Theres no hard feelings from me. As mucb as i hate to say it for all of us but unless its on ob skysports the deal usually isn't done.

{Ed025's Note - i know what your saying supermane but i dont think its done with any malice, some information can be unconfirmed or as in the VVD case less than legal but im sure its provided with the best of intentions mate..

4.) 07 Jun 2017 22:15:42
Nice one. I was thinking that, bigger scandals have happened and they do blow over. We might be best paying Roma the asking price and moving on.

5.) 07 Jun 2017 22:20:36
ed25 - just saying that when your guys inside word doesn't quite work out, it ain't cos the eds were wrong as some are suggesting.

{Ed025's Note - thats right faith, not all information can be 100% which is why we tend to err on the side of caution mate..

6.) 07 Jun 2017 23:01:09
Yeah i get it lad.

Its just when it ends in confirmed or done. Its takin literally. Througj good reason aswel. End of the if we didn't trust and believe in these guys then noone would be getting angry. Its only because we know how spot on they are that you believe it.

Same as ed with kovacic. When he says something that's it, shes always spot on, but he's not a wizard.

We haven't lost any trust and i want to personally thank macca for making the effort to give us some news.



02 Jun 2017 16:08:06
Our first choice XI (firmino edition) was up there with the best in the prem. Our lack of quality depth was a big factor in helping us overcome the inevitable physical and mental fatigue that build up over a season as well as covering injuries. It is understandable that some want the likes of Griezman as a top-end signing. But we shouldn't dismiss the value of adding the likes of salah to an already elite attack brings in terms of quality depth at 1st team level.


1.) 02 Jun 2017 16:19:20
I don't think it's fair to judge Salah on one half season under Mourinho. He's only 24 and his best years are ahead of him. He's been utterly superb this season abc returned to the form at Basle when he ripped most teams apart in the Champions League.

2.) 02 Jun 2017 16:35:25
It's hard to fully judge a lot of players under Mourinho. Lukaku, Salah, KDB and even Luke Shaw now. he seems to intimidate players in a negative factor. Judging Salah in that short spell at Chelsea shouldn't be looked upon 2 seriously, he for me is a great talent, explosive pace, unreal dribbling ability and a decent eye for goal and most importantly can easily adjust across all 3 attacking positions in our free flowing play.

3.) 02 Jun 2017 17:24:08
Don't forget he bullied Hazard and impaired his ability. Salah is a really good signing when all said and done.

4.) 02 Jun 2017 19:12:57
Every time I saw salah play for Chelsea he seemed electric. Fair enough he didn't play often but I really don't think he got a decent chance. I'd be pleased with his signing.



16 Apr 2017 02:11:45
My son was born on the morning of April 16 2014. Hillsborough anniversary New Zealand time. We were always going to name him Isaiah but given thensignificance of the day and the 25th anniversary, we wanted (well I did and my wife jumped on board haha) to include Justice as one of his middle names. Because in NZ its on the list of names ya can't really use without aporoval, we had to apply to Internal Affairs. We made our case based on our affinity to the club, the significance of the day to the club and the people of Liverpool, and the relevance of the word Justice and JFT96. They eventually approved and so we legally have Isaiah Ioane Justice Viliamu!

Now, 3 today, he has heard many stories of Liverpool, lay asleep quietly when stevie slipped away the league ( :p ), run around the room crazy after Lovren's header vs Dortmund altho I think he was just copying daddy and for 3 birthdays now has heard the story of hillsborough and why fighting for Justice was so important for the liverpool people and is important for all of us to fight for. He sings now as best as he can - "justice fodda nineny nix" haha

Anyways just wanted to share the story. And that whilst we may have times when we are at each other for whatever reason whether it difference of opinions or sometimes because we are not from the city. Just wanted the people of Liverpool to know that there are those of us from around the world who as deeply connected to the club as we can be whilst so geogrpahically diatanced. But we love the club as much as we can!

It wasnt just the football but also the stories of how Anfield rocked all night, how educated Anfield fans were and would applaud moments of brilliance from the opposition, how the people of Liverpool fought for Justice everyday. That a Samoan from New Zealand can be in love with a club in the way I am, I think that is something for your city and people to be proud of. #YNWA #JFT96 #JUSTICESERVED.


1.) 16 Apr 2017 02:31:20
Thanks form sharing mate. My regards to little Justice. He'll never walk alone. JFT96!

2.) 16 Apr 2017 04:18:19
Great read that mate. It is amazing how we can all be so intense about something so far away, that many of us may never even get to see in person.

3.) 16 Apr 2017 09:19:47
Just seen this- belated happy bday justice ynwa.

4.) 16 Apr 2017 09:38:50
Awesome story. Thanks for sharing.

5.) 16 Apr 2017 10:02:34
Nice one faith in works. good story that and this is the type of thing that makes football great. Just goes to show u don't need to be there to support as some people say. Ynwa.

6.) 16 Apr 2017 14:00:14
Thanks for taking time to read! Cheers team! Great day for the little guy munching easter eggs and stomping muddy puddles! 1am here, time for the lads in red to wake up the neighbourhood!

All they had to do was pick up the phone. quite simple really. Don't ya get shivers down ya spine when ya think how those in charge so often gloss over the fine details?
We don't spend likes others can, so we need to be well on top of our game in all other areas.

Whilst we have 6 midfielders competing for 3 positions, can we really say that those 6 will compete with each other theme course of the season? Coutinho, Hendo, lallana and Gini you would expect are well experienced enough, physically and mentally capable to stay the course. Can maybe too as he enters into his mid-20s. But grujic is a Massive question mark and is more likely imo to be at risk of fading as the season progresses. There was a good reason the eds were saying he needed more nurturing away from the prem, and a lot of is to mentally prepare for these rigours of a full PL season. He should be a bit-part player contributing in cups and cameos off the bench. Unless injuries or the birth of a start. He is not part of the core rotation. Woodburn is the same.

for me, Gomez needs to play. he could go on loan to another club until he is in his early 20s, when he might be bashing the door down as a regular first team starter for us. isn't it better that he gets the minutes in and develop his experience?

To me ojo is like those stereotypical teenage boys who is just physically bigger stronger and faster than his peers. Then they starts playing with adults and they are found wanting. To me this is a Massive factor as to why it is difficult for younger players to break through into the first team.
because for so many of them it takes a long time for the mental side of the game to catch up to their physical side. And then ultimately clubs are always looking to bring in new players either, the same age or older, who can bring a more well rounded version of what they have currently EG solanke v OJ.

Lucas cname to compete with Stevie for attacking mid role. Got shunted into defensive midfield role that he made his own. Then got shunted out of it as Stevie's legs betrayed him and led him into the deep lying quarterback position. eventually Lucas won it back and arguably was as good as Stevie in that position in Stevie's last season. and then remodelled hiss game again into a CB role. All whilst not being disruptive presence in dressing room, being a leader and presence in club and community. What a player for the club. Legend? Dunno, his story is great either way.

I think these are genuine questions from posters who just can't tell the difference. You can normally tell the ones who are trying to deflect, they say stuff like "well everyone is doing it". People here obviously aren't as well versed in the game about how tapping up works. Maybe if ya had sticky posts or links to info etc that would help others.

I hope studge stays fit and can get that confidence in his body back. long rehab process and he is still in it, but he started to look sharp at the back end of last season. hope that it continues for him and for the good of the club too.
