awesome if we are after allison. He looks confident and assured. to be honest, goalkeeping skills aside, I feel that those kinds of characteristics are missing from our team. we come across a bit of a front-running team that performs at peak when the cards fall our way. be nice to have some guys that ooze class and confidence to play their game no matter what is in front of them. that's also what I like about shaqiri.

keep up the good work everyone. we've been trending in a positive direction for the last couple seasons now, it's really cool to see the growth of this team under Klopp and FSG.


1.) 18 Jul 2018 03:14:21
Its not happening. Another false dawn.

2.) 18 Jul 2018 04:07:42
The Alisson Becker seems too good to be true to me honestly. The club had made some great signings and strides towards the future. However, I find it highly unlikely after Klopp stating that Ward would have an opportunity to be the number 1 keeper. Some of you might say who cares, but that type of rep of not keeping your word can deter players from coming.

I can't see Roma letting their best player go either, especially since they are not under any financial restrictions anymore as when they sold Salah to us. They would not let Becker go with no replacement lined up either.

Why would the club sign another keeper don't we have three on the books already. Four if you include Bogdan even though he is out on loan.

3.) 18 Jul 2018 05:42:07
I think Alisson will be leaving Roma this window regardless. Whether that is to us is a different matter. But I think he wants to go.

4.) 18 Jul 2018 06:04:52
How can people be certain that klopp actually said this to ward and it’s not just paper tosh? How can people be so certain that ward so he’d rather move on and be no1 somewhere else?

People always find something to moan about even when they might finally be getting what they’ve been asking for 🙄.

5.) 18 Jul 2018 06:31:18
HarrytheRed, TBF its not the first time Klopp has lied to one of his players. Seems to be a pretty regular thing.

6.) 18 Jul 2018 06:34:09
Totally agree Faithinworks, the fact that we are making offers for players of this calibre are signs that the club is making massive strides forward in the transfer market. An area in the running of the club that has been a bit doubtful until recently.
If we got Alisson and Fekir, what a fantastic window this will have been. Can't wait to finally see Keita in action too - what a season this could be!

7.) 18 Jul 2018 06:48:24
Harry, this is Monchi we’re talking about.
You really think he won’t sell a GK for £60+ million?

Every player has a price for Monchi. He will definitely sell, it just depends on whether the player can agree with the successful bidder.
Monchi will sell, don’t worry about that.

8.) 18 Jul 2018 07:02:54
Klopp had plenty of previous with telling a player one thing and doing another, Ward is particular already knows about it. Either way, both Karius and Ward now know for sure that Liverpool will replace them if we can, they both know they're replaceable.

9.) 18 Jul 2018 07:14:21
Didn't ED001 confirm contact had been made? If Klopp and FSG weren't serious about wanting the lad, why bother contacting? This isn't a game you know. Karius, Ward and Migs are all still on the books, why upset them even more if you don't think you've got a realistic chance of doing a deal?

10.) 18 Jul 2018 07:17:35
Let’s be honest. lots of players have no loyalty to their managers and clubs either. They say one thing and do another. ( Coutinho! )

11.) 18 Jul 2018 07:40:40

Spot. on!

12.) 18 Jul 2018 08:24:06
Surely all managers tell all players they have a chance of playing don’t they? Unless they want to get rid of them. Otherwise the players will have zero motivation.

13.) 18 Jul 2018 08:26:27
The “Ward opportunity to be no. 1” story just seems to be unfounded supposition. There seems to be no attributed or even unattributed source for this, just someone guessing. Until there’s a credible source for this, just ignore.

14.) 18 Jul 2018 09:07:48
Let’s be honest lads do you actually care who plays for the club and doesn’t and how much they cost cos I don’t we could play Kamil grabara in goal next season as long as he performs and the team do well who cares . It’s about the team not the individual . The board have obviously decided that with the keepers we have we aren’t strong enough to compete for the end goal .
Let’s just support the team and club no matter what 👌🏻.

15.) 18 Jul 2018 09:19:03
Dawkins i’m assuming it’s because klopp said he'll play longer than 45 minutes in the next friendly, the media put 2+2 together and got 5 as always lol.

16.) 18 Jul 2018 10:21:04
Brisbane LFC, why are you always so quick to accuse the LFC manager of lying? Please share any actual evidence - not hearsay or gossip - of when he has lied.

17.) 18 Jul 2018 11:15:45
Wirral, cos I don't think klopp is all that and I haven't fallen under his spel like many have.

18.) 18 Jul 2018 11:49:01
Brisbane, fair enough that you don’t rate Klopp but I just think repeatedly calling him a liar is going a bit far without the evidence to back it up. But I wouldn’t like to fall out with a fellow Red over it.

19.) 18 Jul 2018 13:34:18
This is a stupid thread.



26 Feb 2018 17:10:34
regards Jorginho - is that a rumour that has been verified?

Regards any type of player coming in to play that role in midfield. ACE! and honestly, I don't think it would matter who that player is. Anyone who is a little bit more tactically aware and can pass a decent ball will do wonders for the balance of our midfield allowing Hendo, Keita, gini etc to be the legs in the midfield. so whoever that player is, get him in! heck, bring lucas back to play that role!


1.) 27 Feb 2018 12:22:39
Faithinworks, we are looking to move forward with our progression towards trophies, bringing Lucas back in a starting role will hinder that. I trust whoever Klopp picks for midfield will be a great choice, his track record for signings is pretty impressive, he seems to know the exact type of player that suits his system!



19 Apr 2017 09:56:36
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.}

2, maybe 3 times now Allison has almost been caught in possession. I'd like to see him work on his cruyff turns and step overs to avoid these situations better. some time with Lallana will get him there!

Gini quiet achiever. I liken him a little to Lucas, who was naturally a more attacking player but had to adapt into a more defensive-minded role. That the reports are that he did "ok" is relatively good for me

This game was kind of like the 2nd or 3rd pre-season game. Like, ya come out firing in first pre-season game, and then heavy legs set in. It looked a little like that yesterday for me. In these situations I'd like to see earlier subs to keep the legs and importantly the minds fresh. But Klopp is boss, and we did get the 3 points in the end!

Final thought, is that we are still prone to leaving gaping holes in our midfield. Be nice to see this side of our game develop so that we're not leaving ourselves so open when we are protecting a slender lead. I think we can find a balance between hitting on the counter whilst also protecting the middle of the field. it might be tweaking our midfield three, to have a pivot base of 2 CMs with one ahead to spark counters etc or maybe it's just making sure our players are switched on at key points of the match to take the air out of the ball and steady the ship. But then that does come down to an earlier point about keeping the legs and minds fresh. anyways, nit-picking here!

YNWA and welcome back Salah.


1.) 27 Aug 2018 00:02:25
Thank you Faithinworks.



04 Aug 2018 08:06:13
Thinking about the season ahead, I think we should head into it with a confidence in our team but also with some caution about any perceieved weakness of our rivals.

Whatever ya want to say about Chelsea and arsenal, they have just employed two fantastic coaches and both squads are sprinkled with seasoned pros and title winners.

Spurs haven't added like us, bit they haven't lost a lot. Their consistency and chemistry will be a strength, hopefully for them they steer clear of injuries.

ManU at the end of the day, especially recently, are about results. They do seem like they headed to an explosion under Mou, but I think he should get the benefit of the doubt. He has won titles in his reign there so far and he knows how to set up his team to get results, even if that is only against us in an otherwise average season lol

City will be city.!

And of course the rest of the league will improve again

I think for us, besides talent, it is also about our emotional and mental endurance to last the season. Klopp and co learned and managed the hectic dec-jan period expertly. They've continued to learn by adding steel to key areas of our spine. But my hesitation about us is that we atill have a team of losers. Be nice to get over that hump and take our club up to the true elite level of England and European football. With this group, Milner is about the only one who has experienced consistent championships. So for the rest of the squad we have to create that. Cos on the real, we're still banging on the door to get in. But hey, at least we're at the door now.!


1.) 04 Aug 2018 09:06:48
Instead of a team of losers, I would rather say we have limited players with experience of winning a major title. Most of that is down to not many having had the chance to play in a squad like this before (eg. VVD, Keita)

Apart from that I agree with you, we shouldn't underestimate the opposition which have all been heavily invested in over the years. It's very tight in terms of squad quality apart from perhaps City. I hope our clear pattern of play and team togetherness will be the difference, and once we win one, I think we'll go on to win more.

2.) 04 Aug 2018 11:11:40
I think in the past we have come unstuck as the depth (with quality) of our squad has let us down. However- heading into next season we could have (hypothetically) the following starting 11 and then (back up)

Allinson (Karius)
TAA (Clyne)
Lovren (Gomez)
VVD (Klavan)
Robertson (Moreno)
Fabinho (Milner)
Keita (Gini)
Hendo ( AoC)
Salah (Lallana)
Firmino (Sturridge)
Mane (Shaqiri)

2nd 11 still solid enough but with added qualitygoing forward to break teams down.

IMO- arguably only City have a stronger 22.

3.) 04 Aug 2018 11:44:23
ye it's probably being a bit harsh, but then again we have a chunk of our squad who have lost 3 finals together. So just saying, that winning edge and mentality is something we're still to develop! the personalities we have brought in are primed for it tho and ya get the feel that we have better emotional leadership on the pitch.

4.) 04 Aug 2018 18:01:47
Have you seen shaqiri's medal collection? Huge.

A team of losers is wrong. It sounds wrong and is mis leading.

We haven't gotten over the line in finals but that's okay as there isn't a Premier league final and that's the trophy we are going for this year.

I thimk we will go deep in European Cup, semis maybe.



25 Jul 2018 06:55:21
anyone read sturridge's interview? I think I seen his words about naby circulated on here. but he also talks about his own progress and development at the club.

I was really impressed by his words. he has to prove it on the pitch obviously. but the words he spoke were promising and spoke a bit to how he may be seeing the big picture a bit better now. Got me thinking that some of his injuries and limitations of the past couple seasons have been because he has been trying to keep being the off the shoulder striker he used to be. Whereas in actuality he needed to adjust his game. After some time away from the club perhaps he is appreciating his place at the club and the all round role he can play for us.

Hey it could be all talk, but tbh it sounds good. And I genuinely hope he can implement it onto the pitch and keeps himself healthy to do that.


{Ed025's Note - or it could be that his contract is up next year and he,s asking himself where the hell am i going to get this sort of money for laying on a treatment table for most of the year?..cynical maybe faith but my memory wont erase the picture of him lying on a sunbed in the states sipping a cocktail by a pool when the weather here was below freezing while undergoing "treatment", two words come to mind..piss and taker, talented guy for sure but the heart of a mouse mate..

1.) 25 Jul 2018 07:25:45
ED25, agreed, how many chances does Studge get, huge wages in the hope he stays fit? He got a great opportunity to go on loan and get back to good form again and broke down again, the sentimentality on here is bizarre at times, I'm all for back our players but sometimes it's better to just move on.
Oh and if he does go and has a good season somewhere people will have the great pleasure to come on here and tell everyone "I told you so", so winner winner chicken dinner.

{Ed025's Note - i just think hes after an easy life mac, good for him but not for the club who have bent over backwards to accomodate him and have been more than fair with him, i dont pretend to know what issues he has mentally or physically but from the outside it looks like he is taking the proverbial mate..

2.) 25 Jul 2018 07:49:05
I’d prefer to keep Origi than Sturridge. He hasn’t looked at all like himself in years. Best thing for him and the club is to move on. Appreciate what he did but a fresh start might be what he needs. He can still develop his game but he’ll unlikely fit in with a team that requires him to work so hard.

3.) 25 Jul 2018 08:12:03
To be fair to the lad, Ed025, I watched a lot of him after he came to Liverpool in that January transfer window. He transformed the team and was fantastic.
He was taking a lot of service with his back to the goal - it wasn't over the top stuff - and he took some terrible hammer as a result.
I vividly remember a match at Old Trafford in the League Cup when Phil Jones kicked him to pieces and never even got a card when he should have had about six yellows!

There was definitely a competitive dynamic between Sturridge and Suarez, and it helped to bring out the best in Sturridge.
But it was like he fell to pieces after the Uruguayan left. Mind you, with Balotelli and Lambert as his partners, you can see why!
The perennial hope is that Liverpool's attacking riches inspires him once more, and gives him the opportunity for rotation and rest if he does have chronic physical issues?

{Ed025's Note - suarez was great for him juicer and helped him immensely while he was there thats for sure, his inspiration now seems to be the pay packet and the smell of liniment in the treatment room, nice guy by all accounts but as a playing asset he is a total waste of space unfortunately mate..

4.) 25 Jul 2018 08:25:06
Can't argue with that Ed25, harsh but true mate. I love the lad and want him to get to his best again, unfortunately that won't happen and he's about as much use as an old ornament in my loft. He's had an easy ride for a few years now, getting paid top dollar and for what? nothing. He'll walk on a free next year.

Agreed aoe, I'd rather have Origi too mate.

5.) 25 Jul 2018 08:36:45
Have you watched Origi in the 4 pre season matches? This was his chance to be first choice back up for Firmino. Origi has been terrible, always makes the wrong decision, runs down blind alleys and very wild in front of goal. He also had a poor loan spell for the bottom German club.

Origi has actually gone backwards in the last 2 years, no where near the standard required.

6.) 25 Jul 2018 08:37:21
Have to disagree, Sturridge from the bench is a scary option to have, if he scores 10+ goals this season, get him on a year extension, it'll cost us 30-40 mil to replace him with a decent back up option anyway.

7.) 25 Jul 2018 08:45:28
That's the hope, red-till-i'm-dead.
He's definitely capable of that.

You can't help but come to any other conclusion that the one Ed025 makes above, so it seems that we won't be able to sell him.
If not, use his talents, such as they are now, and in the process it serves the team and himself by helping to secure a move elsewhere next season?

8.) 25 Jul 2018 08:50:49
'if he scores 10+ goals this season'

That's a big if mate.

9.) 25 Jul 2018 09:26:49
Morning Salah, I don't agree with quite a lot of your opinions on players, but your post re Walter I totally agreed with. Well done for that one.

10.) 25 Jul 2018 09:37:15
Morning mark. Thanks, I thought that post was necessary, some people can go over the top a little bit at times and I think with Walter being the negative of us all, he gets misinterpreted quite a lot which lead to stupid accusations which imo is uncalled for.

No worries about not agreeing with me mark mate, we all have our opinions, the world would be a very boring place if we all agreed :) .

Have a good day mate.

11.) 25 Jul 2018 09:42:02
Let's not forget he's been with us for 5 or so years, he's one of us as far as I'm concerned, injuries or not. People keep mentioning the 150k a week he's on but as is regularly said on here when it comes to transfer fees " its not my money ", besides he's never damaged the clubs reputation or let himself down in any way, I for one hope he stays and proves all the doubters wrong.

{Ed025's Note - when you say "not let himself down in any way" RTID do you include wasting a god given talent through laziness and lack of heart?, or even obtaining money under false pretenses?...just a question..

12.) 25 Jul 2018 10:01:35
Compare Suarez' build, like a more squat middle-weight boxer, with the taller, leaner and more athletic stature of Sturridge though Ed025.
As I said, he's taken some awful stick. Some of the defenders are proper units and you'd know all about it if they hit you.
Maybe he has lost the desire though to keep getting back up, who knows?

{Ed025's Note - or maybe he thinks sitting on a couch or lying on a sunbed is an easier life than running till it hurts or getting tackled juicer?, hes on the same money whatever so who knows, im not a doctor or psychologist but it does look bad mate..

13.) 25 Jul 2018 10:01:46
I don't believe he's lazy Ed, I remember a player that was willing to head on loan to Bolton just to prove himself (and bagged some great goals for them), I see a player who's confidence was shot full of holes due to injuries when really he could of done with some backing from his supporters. He's great with the fans, he's always smiling and it feels like 90% of the fan base just shoved him to one side. I don't see any headlines in papers about him being caught drink driving with a hooker in the car at 3am 😜👍.

{Ed025's Note - i hear hes a really nice guy RTID and brilliant with the youngsters at the club but thats not the point, peoples perception of him is that he wont play if he breaks a finger nail mate and to be fair he has generated that persona the way if he was with a hooker she would be the one on top.. :)

14.) 25 Jul 2018 10:21:22
Jesus Ed025 your hammering Studge mate. He has had his fair share of injurys but I for one hope he can stear clear of the treatment table and play back up to Bobby.

{Ed025's Note - its nothing personal KR and as a person i have lauded him up to be fair, as a footballer though he leaves a lot to be desired imo mate...with desire being the operative word..

15.) 25 Jul 2018 10:23:03
Haha well let's hope he doesn't get the number for one of wazza, at her age she'll probably be the one with a hip injury in the end.

16.) 25 Jul 2018 10:27:27
He should take a seriously reduced pay packet though. Or if not I hope he is donating a lot of what he is getting to charity but I haven't heard of him doing so.

If he can stay injury free and perform like he is capable then that’s fine, keep the money like xD.

17.) 25 Jul 2018 11:43:57
I loved Sturridge. One of my favorite players. Would love to see him get back to it but it’s 3 years since he’s looked like he’s up to it. It’s not a case of him getting it back, it’s a case of him being unable to do what he used to do. I think he could still do it in a team where he can save himself running. He’s a sublime finisher. If he could play at a team where he hovers around the box he’d be great. I just don’t think it’s at Liverpool. As for Origi, he’s still young and I think he could do a better job than anyone else at the club from the bench and who knows beyond.

18.) 25 Jul 2018 11:51:09
I should also add mark, I haven’t managed to see any preseason matches this year yet so I can’t defend him at all. Could be a good omen though cos normally I see them all. If you say he’s lost it then fair enough, I wouldn’t mind a better option to Origi but I wouldn’t mind seeing if he can do it for half a season when he gets used to the system.



25 Jul 2018 06:55:21

22 Jul 2018 00:21:43
Great window. If we were going to sign another, my preference would be pulisic if available. Young, versatile, American market etc. Think he'd be great.

I don't think we need Fekir tbh.


1.) 22 Jul 2018 01:35:09
Pulisic would always be my number one, if only mate.

2.) 22 Jul 2018 05:31:44
Who'd have Sterling back?
Hands uo in class?
Me, there's one.

3.) 22 Jul 2018 05:52:29
Pulisic would be a great option for us. Can play on either wing which would allow Salah to move up top and Bobby drops into CAM against bus parking teams. The price will be prohibitive though unless we offload all the surplus forward players (Ings, Sturridge, Origi, Kent, Ojo) .

4.) 22 Jul 2018 06:44:05
Pulisic can play the AM too. He's played there for the US national team. Don't think he's moving this window. From reading and hearing interviews he seems to think Dortmund is the best place to grow. I think he's probably right. To many youngsters go to a big club to early.

5.) 22 Jul 2018 06:54:14
I would love us to buy Mikel Oyarzabal from Sociedad in spain
Kid looks like he has a massive future and scored a very impressive 12 goals last season
Only 21 so lots of improvements to come also.

6.) 22 Jul 2018 08:53:27
Klopp gave a pretty detailed response in the press conference yesterday that Pulisic needs to stay at Dortmund for his development. So no chance in this window.

7.) 22 Jul 2018 10:00:54
Yeah, Juicer. There's only you who wants Sterling back at LFC esp. after that "sensational" World Cup he had in Russia where he could not his a barn door.

8.) 22 Jul 2018 12:10:32
Sterling is the type of player who ends up at a mid table team come 26/ 27.he has so much promise but his lack of composure is going to end up putting the top clubs off.

Anyone remember losing to arsenal a few years ago, post suarez I think, it was 0 0 or 1 0 arsenal and sterling gets through one on one and missed by a mile.

I think he thinks too much when he should just hit the net.

9.) 22 Jul 2018 12:50:07
Robbiejames, no need to even go that far as I remember that miss as well. Just check out how many complete sitters he missed last season and you will see for yourself. We let him go at the right time and rightfully, stuck City for every penny they got.

To be fair, and I have no idea of the specifics, but he'll yeah I would burn a year on the bench on significantly higher wages then leave for free. He gets to train with this team and can continue some form of development that way. Go get that money Lazar!

OP was also just asking a question. FIFA also rates pavard fairly highly too.


{Ed001's Note - he was excellent last season, so he deserves to be highly rated. In fact he probably underperformed in the World Cup due to playing out of position from what I have seen of him.}

i have a love/ hate relationship with the fullback position. great position to get lots of ball. I'd lean towards playing more defensively and pickin momnts to overlap. otherwise, as ed1 said, if you are in an average team you'll be sprinting upfield only to tun around and have to sprint back again with no one covering you!

but if you in a better team then presumably you're training and I'd say the key is have great communication with the key player on your side of the pitch.

wayching highlights from last season, and some of his goals were just perfect strikes. I think it is natural that his stats regress. I'd like to see Salah and Mane combining more around the box. we will have less space to counter this season so we need to develop this more consistently.

imo we've rarely been the type of team to break down the oppisition with technique and 1-2s. obviously it happens but I feel like we are far more of a direct team that capitalizes on space created by our pressure. for me, this is partly why we've had some struggles against team who park the bus. our ball movement can be laboured and we become one dimensional, when some creativity around changing angles and overloads would help us. I think we are developing this and seen more signs over the last season. but ya need more players like keita who have that style in their blood.

I don't know if it took Klopp 2.5 seasons to "accept" we needed changes or if it took that time to effect the changes. i'm leaning with the latter as I'd always felt it'd take 3 summer windows to get Klopp's squad in shape.

Good for gini to play a settled position. He is obviously versatile, but shifting from deepest midfielder to box to box can influnce his consistency.
