We have Keita coming and are linked with another cm. We are losing can. We have been saying for seasons we lack that bite in midfield and maybe Keita adds that, but something noticeable for me, against city and against Roma in the first legs, hendo, Milner, gini or Ox won 80% of lose balls, headers and 50/50s which WA Skye to our quick turnovers and counters for me.

I hope we don't lose that, and if we do sign another cm, I obviously hope they are a good footballer first, and suits our style, but can't help but think that physical edge would be great.
I know we have been loosely linked with Jorginho, but I don't believe he really offers that.
Are we linked with any who do?


1.) 14 May 2018 10:08:47
Do you honestly believe that Klopp would sign a midfielder who wasn't a good footballer or didn't suit our style?
Or couldn't stand up to the hurly burly of the Premiership?

2.) 14 May 2018 11:54:17
He DID sign Steven Caulker on loan at one point. lol.

3.) 14 May 2018 14:03:21
I propose a ban on the mentioning of Caulker on this site, Klopp has had an excellent record in the transfer window for us but every time someone mentions it, someone says caulker.

4.) 14 May 2018 15:16:11
Reynard, he signed him based on the opinion of someone within the club. He decided to trust this persons view and then learnt from it. That is entirely different to his view when signing a player.

5.) 14 May 2018 20:28:02
Loosen up, it's a joke (hence the "lol") . sad lack of humour on here sometimes.



02 Jan 2018 08:23:42
Lijnders left to coach in Holland. All the bed to him, always spoke of very highly by klopp, hopefully can find a good replacement!


1.) 02 Jan 2018 08:40:37
Top guy, best wishes for the future Pep.

2.) 02 Jan 2018 12:06:48
My brother in law tells me that he's a really great guy and he's wonderful to have around. Apparently he was very highly thought of at the club too so that is a big loss to us imo.

Liverpool linked with dani ceballos of madrid, I assume rubbish?


{Ed002's Note - It is sort of correct. Real Madrid have given permission for Dani Ceballos' representativea to approach clubs with a view to a loan before any decision about a sale can be made. The loan will require guarantees of game time. The representatives held meetings in London with Arsenal and Liverpool and have also met Roma and Inter to see what interest there is. It is difficult to see how another central midfield player could be used by Liverpool right now, particularly one on loan, without being disruptive to the team. Inter have someone else arriving so would perhaps not be keen on what is likely to be a high loan fee. Roma I don't know. Arsenal are looking for a central midfield addition in January although there preference is for someone else on a permanent deal - but just perhaps.

Ceballos was watched by Liverpool in the days of Brendan Rodgers.}

1.) 24 Dec 2017 21:29:20
He would fit perfectly in our midfield 8 next season.

2.) 24 Dec 2017 22:56:44
Ron man you were always my favourite poster on Here, recently you been so negative! Enjoy your Christmas, enjoy the dinner, enjoy the wine and please come back to us in January the good ol' Ron because I cannot deal with your negativity!

3.) 25 Dec 2017 08:51:33
Loving the new Ron keep it up and have happy Xmas and new year.

4.) 25 Dec 2017 12:11:18
Maybe both coutinio and can are off in January ed 02. Keitas not coming till the summer so a loan could be an option. I'd prefer we just soldier on with what we've got even if the 2 do go. Llama should be ready to go soon.

5.) 26 Dec 2017 10:37:56
Guys all I did was phrase what Ed002 implied differently.

We stockpile midfielders to a pathological degree and unless we are going to play 8 at once it is totally futile.
Grujic has yet to play a game, Lallana has been injured all season, Woodburn never gets a game, Ejaria seemed to be permanent unused sub last season, Keita is coming, plenty of people plead for a new contract for Can, we’ve just signed Oxlade Chamberlain.

We need defenders!

6.) 26 Dec 2017 14:00:26
So you've named all the midfielders who don't play, not sure how they are relevant as the majority are youngsters trying to establish themselves. That leaves Hendo, wiji, Milner, lallana, can and couts (who both look like leaving) that's not quite 8. so you think him signing on loan til the end of the year would require us to play 8 midfielders? Any excuse to moan these days Ron.

7.) 27 Dec 2017 09:31:12
Agree with Ron. Only 2 of those are youngsters and his response is including the fact that every other thread is about another midfielder we're going to sign. I guess unlike some he is joining up the site as a whole not just viewing each post in isolation. Need is for some better experienced defenders that suit what the club needs. Not another 3-4 midfielders. Personally I'd rather see an out and out natural greedy finisher before see another midfielder.



31 Aug 2017 01:07:56
few rumours about Thomas muller on loan - lemar to sign next season and muller for this?!

Just watched match of The day, and I do think it’s citys to lose still - they are such a well oiled machine. So well drilled look like they just know what to do at all times.
Okay they have a mistake in them, and their back four is far from impenetrable, but when they need a goal they always look like getting it.
I just think they will be More consistent, and we may go on a run of great wins, but when it comes to the few points which determine who wins overall, they have the experience now too!
My aims for this year are a trophy, let’s break the losing streak, and do our best to mount a title charge, but my feet are on the ground.


1.) 13 Aug 2018 07:03:20
It's ours to lose mate ;) . City will be strong once again and so they should be but I really don't see them doing as good as they did last season whereas us, I see us doing a hell of a lot more this season. I said it weeks ago and I still believe it, we'll win the league.

I haven't said the 'this is our year' stuff for many years but now it's my turn to say it because I genuinely believe it is.

The way I look at it right now, are we afraid of any team in the league? I'm not, we have enough quality to destroy all of them, we tore apart city 3/ 4 times last season and that's without the new signings. Every team playing Liverpool now, need to be afraid, including City because we can dominate this season. I'm not saying we'll go and win every single game, of course there will be some upsets but overall I think we're going to smash it.

2.) 13 Aug 2018 07:12:39
You must’ve watched a different match than me. City didn’t look that good, Arsenal just looked like a team totally lost (I’m not saying that to belittle arsenal. ITs going to take them some time. ) but ederson is a weak point in their team for me. He’s not as good with his feet as many think. And he’s error prone. Their back line is not that good. Sure they’re going to be tough for anyone to beat but they’re not invincible.

We just need to take care of our own business. Our team is better, I truly believe it. The only player I’d take from them (in the first 11s) is De bruyne. If we stay focused we can beat them.

3.) 13 Aug 2018 07:47:35
I'd have to agree that City were not their usual selves yesterday but hey, it's only the beginning of the season. How many teams can afford to start a game with De Bruyne and Sane on the bench? For those who predicted that Arsenal would be in the top 4, after yesterday's game I would say that's wishfull thinking at best. Completely chaotic and very undisciplined. And the usual Arsenal problem - some players play their socks off and others couldn't give a damn.

4.) 13 Aug 2018 08:28:25
The difference between us and most other teams that played City last season (and how Arsenal looked last game) is that we don't sit back, worried that they are going to rip us apart. We actually want the ball and want to get at them. Remember the Chelsea game last season? Shameful. As we've seen with the CL last season, we can beat them, and beat them well. Our main problem I fear, is that we'll drop silly points and be relying on other teams to hurt City. I say City, but I don't expect us to be the only ones pushing them. The way everyone is talking, you'd think it's a 2 horse race.

5.) 13 Aug 2018 08:29:34
That City team played without David Silva, Sane and KDB. Put those 3 in and they would have tore Arsenal to pieces. City are the favorites for the league by some distance, just accept it. I will be delighted to finish 2nd and within 10 points of City, who just happen to probably be the most dominant team in the premier league era. That would be progress for Klopp and Co, and we can always target trophies in the form of the UCL and FA Cup for now.

6.) 13 Aug 2018 08:47:24
Yes it will come down to who is most consistent. If we can improve the areas where we dropped points then we'll be in with a shout.

7.) 13 Aug 2018 09:10:57
Have to agree with Indian there. Although it was only 2-0, it was embarrassing at times in that first half. You had the feeling that if Sane, KDB and in particular, David Silva were on the pitch from the start, the scoreline would have been bigger.

8.) 13 Aug 2018 09:16:56
I'm not pleased to say it, but City would probably be more consistent. I still think teams are more afraid of them than they are of us. Arsenal played without hope in the first half. Most teams would be that scared for the whole game and won't take a go at City.

9.) 13 Aug 2018 10:11:56
We're bound to have doubts about our consistency because of how we've been the past god knows how many years but them days are over imo, the way Klopp has this team playing, the players we have, they all work hard, they want to succeed more then anything you can just see it, we'll be more consistent this season and we'll smash it, after that CL final the players are hungry for it. I don't see it going down to the last few games either, I believe we're going to do it with ease.

City have got an incredible team we all know this but will they do what they did last season again? no chance.

It's not just City though, everybody thinks it's just us and City in the league, no chance there's more challengers out there and I think Utd will be one of them, despite all the BS going on over there.

Call me old and daft, I am! but I do think I'm right with this, my partner at work thinks I'm speaking out of my arse but he's an Arsenal fan and a bit gutted today!



12 Aug 2018 16:11:06
Loved the game, so assured and confident, West Ham started well the second half, but few mins later we scored no dramas!
Best thing for me was when we made subs we strengthened the team, it wasn’t a noteicable drop. I’m not saying Shaqiri is as good as mane at all, but he was fresh and causes them to stay on the back foot. Same with Sturridge, when Salah went off, of course he’s not at that level, but he gets the ball into feet and makes those runs. So many times we get to 70 mins, begin to tire and nothing can really change for the better, as we lacked pace and ability on the Bench.


1.) 12 Aug 2018 16:25:44
Was really impressed by Gomez and Alisson who is so accurate with his long balls. Gomez did well imo not a bad cameo in my opinion. Really looking forward to the next game and hope this team can be consistent. YWNA.

2.) 12 Aug 2018 16:54:11
I too was impressed with Gomez. If he keeps them performances up then it might not just be a cameo there.

3.) 12 Aug 2018 23:14:30
Gomez needs to work on holding his line but he has the speed to recover most of the time. definitely potential at CB but I don’t think he’ll start ahead of Lovren.

4.) 13 Aug 2018 07:50:36
Saw some moaning on the live chat yesterday when we took Firmino off for Henderson but I actually think that was excellent substituting. last season when a forward came off we tended to throw on a defender which always helped bring the other team onto us. This year, bring on a mid instead to help keep the play near the halfway line, let that pattern of play settle for 5/ 10 mins and then bring on another attacking player. Better game management for me that yesterday.



09 Aug 2018 18:05:50
Well quiet for us on the outgoings, at least ings got a loan move it seems, he was the one I think would struggle most abroad, hopefully a few can leave abroad, migs and Markovic say. Very happy with what we have, think we have had a Great window as have Chelsea but none others have as much as us. Hopefully puts us a step ahead of where we were last year. We could be ten points better than last season but I don’t see city being 20 points worse off to be fair - still there’s to lose.


1.) 09 Aug 2018 18:20:18
Fulham wolves Everton West Ham have also had great windows. Would’ve been nice if we could’ve let a few go but possible a few may still go abroad. Nice to see Spurs and Man U haven’t brought in anyone or little in Man U case. Arsenal is hard to tell as the manager alone could be a massive boost for them.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 19:05:08
Hopefully our keeper will save us 10 points. Then we just need to kill off teams and not take our foot off the gas because we are in the CL final again.



07 Aug 2018 23:37:28
I think this odd feeling our season may hinge on Lovren. I am happy with the squad, and Lovren to be fair, and he had proved when he is on his game he can be very good. He just needs to prove it week in week out, we can’t be dropping points every couple of games because he has a brain fart.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 01:32:29
I've got to say firmane, I like the skin head. I'm no BNP, complete opposite but I like our centre backs to be hard and scary.

Remember hypia and henchoz, reminds me of van diike and lovren. I believe with the help of van diike, trent and alisson, lovren could be regarded as one of the best in the world.

Hypia and henchoz cost nothing compared to our 100mil cbs. A world class defender, like hypia or van diike can make his partner a better player.

BTW, hypia and henchoz were s##thot, best defence in the league.

2.) 08 Aug 2018 03:17:54
You doesn't sound happy to me.

3.) 08 Aug 2018 03:22:49
If he's dropping points every 2 weeks then play his back up. What a pointlessly rude thing to say about a CL and WC finalist.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 04:00:12
This season, if he is still a starter come the close of the transfer window, will be his best opportunity to play at a consistently good level. He'll have a quality keeper behind him, a quality defender next to him, good players in Trent and Robertson at full back, who can both defend and Fabinho, and to a lesser extent Keita, affording him more protection.

5.) 08 Aug 2018 07:21:31
Henchoz? My abiding memory of him is giving penalties away every other game!

6.) 08 Aug 2018 08:00:42
Henchoz and Sami formed a brilliant defensive partnership.

7.) 08 Aug 2018 08:15:46
I didn’t mean to be rude about him, but getting to finals doesn’t change how he is as a player. My point was kind of that we have addressed so many key areas well, I hope we can rely on him to stay fit and perform, especially against the lower teams.

8.) 08 Aug 2018 08:52:59
I was being glib about Henchoz, he was a good servant but he wasn't a great defender, he benefited massively from Hyppia next to him and Hamann ahead. He was only ever a stop gap till Carragher was ready.

9.) 08 Aug 2018 14:46:50
From what I remember everyone used to wonder why he got away with so many fouls which could have been pens. I don't think he gave away more pens than any other central defender.

Players like him done their job without much fuss and were more aware of their positioning. Just because he wasn't sliding all over the place doesn't make him a bad defender.

Having Hyypia beside him didn't do any harm also, they were made for us at the time.



07 Aug 2018 21:45:48
Genuinely hope we don’t sign another attacker now really. I think what we have on the fringes of the first team deserve a shot. If Shaqiri can knuckle down, maybe he can force his way into the team as a number 10, maybe Sturridge can stay fit. Hendo doesn’t deserve to be dropped and Fabinho deserves a fair shot.
I say wait until January, then reasses. We have ox coming back too next year, he will be like a signing then. We can make it 4 months with what we have if Sturridge and Lallana get injured again, I’m believe one of Origi ings and Solanke will probably stay, as I don’t see us selling them all before the end, and can’t really see ings and Solanke going abroad.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, I’d hate to waste the talent of Lallana, Sturridge and Shaqiri as they have to share 10 appearances between them until November, when they could be pushing for a starting position.

I understand getting the best deal you can, but sometimes the best deal may be to let them go a little below worth, for the good of the player, to get some income and off the wage bill - especially ones like Markovic and mignolet, who are 3rd choice at best.

I do think we need to hurry up and sell/ loan some - I don’t see Solanke or ings going abroad to be honest.
Can loans still be organised after Friday?

I agree, I don’t think he’s that bad as a second choice, as long as his hearts in it. Worst comes to worst and he plays a few games, he’s experienced and hopefully can hold his own defencively.

He seems like he could be one of the best around, if he just looked like he was trying harder - he’s dominant in the air, and seems to Win the ball with ease - just why not get there first and not have to make a tackle.
