Ed's. Do you know of Klopp bringing in a new goalkeeping coach for next season?
As much as Mignolet is not the best keeper. Do you think the coaching plays a part in his form?


{Ed001's Note - I have believed the goalie coaching has been an issue since we lost Valero. We 100% need a new coach, though Achteberg is a great bloke, he is not a great, or even good, coach. I expected him to be the first replaced, but he seems to have slotted in with the rest, so I would not hold my breath on him being replaced.}

1.) 17 May 2016 11:12:56
Thanks for the reply ed.
I think all of us jointly share the shock that he is yet to be replaced.
Do you think it's a matter of Klopp having someone in mind and them not being available yet?

{Ed001's Note - no.}

2.) 17 May 2016 12:19:35
Lets not forget klopp was perfectly happy with weidenfeller who himself is not a good keeper.

3.) 17 May 2016 13:26:20
Who's the bayern goal keeping coach .?!

{Ed001's Note - Toni Tapalovic.}

4.) 17 May 2016 14:43:19
Lfcfan_03beef, Weidenfeller is a good GK, not a great GK but he's certainly better than most.

5.) 17 May 2016 17:41:23
Ed's I don't know if you have heard or seen the links with Chelsea's goalkeeping coach being approached. I saw that somewhere yesterday. can't think of his name now. Petr Cech has talked him up previously about how much he improved his game.

{Ed002's Note - Christophe Lollichon. I am not aware of Liverpool approaching him. It would obviously be an issue if they have made a direct approach.}

6.) 18 May 2016 05:56:31
Sorry Rd002, I meant to write Lollichon was mentioned in the link, not approached. Obviously I take most links with a grain of salt, just thought i'd mention what I saw as goalkeeping coaches were being spoken about.



11 Feb 2016 16:55:33
Hi Eds. Out of interest with all of the free transfer players which are/ will be available who do you think would be good for us to sign up?


{Ed001's Note - none, we need to get rid of players.}

1.) 11 Feb 2016 17:36:05
Even after the clear out which will most probably happen there is no-one you could see us trying to sign?
Rumours of Joel Matip keep coming up. Not a player to your liking Ed?

{Ed001's Note - never seen him play so how could I want us to sign him?}



20 Jan 2016 14:30:20
Any news on Matip and him signing on with us?
Tried the search engine and no new news.


{Ed002's Note - There is no decision just yet.}



15 May 2015 18:04:59
Just read a post that Kevin prince Boatang is a free agent. Would Liverpool hold any interest in him?
We can all dream of superstar signings but realistically we have to look beneath that, with the powers and money of the top four and the lure of Champions league football I'm thinking he could be a possible signing??


{Ed001's Note - no, he was booted for being a total knob, there will be very few clubs willing to take a chance on him.}

1.) 15 May 2015 21:40:20
Thank you Ed. much appreciat the response

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate, he is nothing but trouble, about as fit to play as my nan on her zimmer, except she smokes less.}

2.) 16 May 2015 03:51:37
Have to agree with you Ed, KPB would be Balotelli Mk. 2 except even worse. My friend (who's a Milan fan) told me that Boateng once got injured because he was having too much "fun" with his girlfriend! That's really all I need to know about him.

3.) 16 May 2015 22:49:37
Ed 001 - I refer you to your first comment, namely we are probably one of those clubs. Balotelli being the obvious latest example



05 May 2015 09:35:57
Have we been looking at Micah Richards this season, with Glen Johnson leaving and Manquillo not looking good enough. Richards being on a free would seem a possible signing?


{Ed001's Note - no.}

1.) 05 May 2015 10:30:43
Honestly don't get the chat with Richards . He's too cumbersome . Can't get a sniff over there and with city . Not great at all . Turns like a bus

Hi MK.
Hope your well bud.
This is no way a argument. Just a convo 👍
I read that you think Klopp got it wrong last night. Can I ask why you think that mate?


1.) 23 Jan 2018 11:17:42
Of course he does we lost so klopp got it wrong the last 18 unbeaten klopp largely got it right but let’s all throw a wobbly for losing one. “This always happens against teams outside the top 7” 18 unbeaten must’ve played against some of the lower league teams in that time.

2.) 23 Jan 2018 11:20:56
Personally mate, i don't understand why he gave Emre Can the arm band. I know too much is made of the importance of who is captain, but for me, giving it to a player who openly doesn't want to play for club is a massive middle finger to the players who do.

On top of that, everyone knew Swansea would sit in and try and frustrate us. So i personally would've started TAA at right back, and given Gomez a nice easy game at centre back. Let's be honest, Swansea barely got at our defence. Arnold also would've put in some better corners than the rubbish Salah served up. Speaking of corners, Klopp really needs to re-evaluate how he defends them. Just leave Salah on the half way line, and put two of your smallest players on the posts. They won't win an aerial dual anyway, so they're offering more defensively if they are readily placed to make a goal line clearance.

On top of that, why has Klopp picked Can and Gini together against a team where we were always going to have 65-70% possession? Can and Gini are both limited on the ball. Gini is best when pressing, and Can is best when he having to get stuck in to a physical battle. In possession, neither player has the speed of thought, the craft, the guile or the composure to hurt opposition. If Lallana was not fit to start, put Woodburn in there. I think even Milner could've offered more offensively than Gini or Can. You don't want Milner on the pitch if we're defending because he's a headless chicken, but he does make better forward runs than Gini and Can do. The decision to then sub Ox who was our only midfielder trying to make something happen, was equally terrible.

If Klopp didn't feel comfortable with Lallana, Milner or Woodburn though, he could've opted for the route i would've taken and played an extra striker instead of Gini or Can. Firmino got crowded out. I would've gone for Solanke before the game started if I'm honest, but Ings showed he could've done some damage if he'd had longer than 15 minutes! I'd start Ings vs West Brom if I'm honest.

Klopp does seem to learn (slowly) from mistakes and I'm just a humble arm chair fan at the end of the day. This is just where i thought he got it wrong. Football is subjective though, and Klopp will have his own ideas on what he got wrong so I'll back him to rectify it in his own way. The players were just as much to blame though as they missed some absolute sitters, scuffed set pieces, showed no urgency, and took too long in the build up play.

It was just one of them days where everything went wrong, but i don't think anyone can say it would've been an outlandish selection choice to pick Arnold and another striker against bottom of the league Swansea! In fact i bet 9/ 10 fans would've started Arnold in this game. Onwards and upwards mate.

3.) 23 Jan 2018 11:32:44
He got it wrong by playing Wijnaldum against a team that we knew would just sit back, sideways Wijnaldum has no zip in his play to unlock a defence and can't pass the ball more than 7 yards, the midfield were very slow to get going last night, hence our centre backs bringing the ball out more and creating more chances than Can And Wijnaldum put together, it took Klopp until the 68th minute as usual to change things and took off Ox before Wijnaldum which made zero sense, Id rather have Woodburn play deep than Gini as he has much more about him.

4.) 23 Jan 2018 11:42:50
The same thing always happens. If we are playing a top side we come out of the traps from the first second, pressing, closing down, forcing mistakes and winning it back.

Against the lesser teams we start off at pedestrian pace, thinking we only have to turn up and let them reorganise before we can get it forward. There is no urgency and, if we don’t get the early goal, the opposition gain confidence and grab a goal from a set piece.

Once they have scored, they sit back even more and crowd us out.

It’s like a movie that we have seen over and over again. The reality is that these games prevent us challenging every season.

5.) 23 Jan 2018 11:46:15
Start Arnold maybe but not the extra striker because if we lost, he'd have been accused of complacency by a fickle few - no need for big changes, definitely should have kept Chamberlain on and brought Arnold on though.

6.) 23 Jan 2018 12:03:45
MK, I agree that Wiji (who was a ghost all game) should not be playing if we are going to have 70% possession. I also agree that Ox should never have come off either. Maybe Klopp wanted to keep us secure while we keep probing as he has done before several times this season and has worked, I don't know. I get that.

As for the arm band, this is to me a non argument. The arm band for some reason, seems to be a sticking point for this club from heaven knows where. Players play in the end. An arm band is nothing but a piece of cloth and it does not say if you are a leader or not. You may have only one capt. BUT you should have multiple leaders in the team. SG did not win the CL on his own neither did Rafa. He was capt, BUT he had Hypopian, Hamman, Dudek and Carra in that team.

I think this is why Klopp does not respond to such things in the media as to him and many other foreign managers, the arm band is no big deal as some national teams rotate it and others well, don't care as every man and his dog knows no one player or capt. wins a game on his own.

That said, I agree with your points regarding how we played and how poor we were. We have NEVER lost back to back games under Klopp which is a feat its own regarding how many lose their marbles on here and other sites after we lose or draw. He will rectify it as that perf. level should NEVER happen again regardless of result.

7.) 23 Jan 2018 12:15:29
If I am not mistaken other than switching Lovren for VVD it was the same team that beat City, I think he was rewarding them for that performance by playing the same again. Lovren has been ill so that change was necessary.

However saying that I agree with what has been said above, Trent would of provided more width and threat in attack and also a better set piece delivery. I actually think we missed Moreno last night too as Robertson still does not look comfortable to me in advanced positions.

I would of started Ings with Firmino due to his work rate and movement, Solanke to come off the bench to provide a different option later in the game.

When we sold Coutinho my concern was not for the big games as we showed last week we can win them without him, but I think we will miss him most when we come up against stubborn defences and we need a bit of magic from midfield.

8.) 23 Jan 2018 12:16:43
Yeah i agree with that Kev. I personally would've started Solanke, but i appreciate that is a left field suggestion. Starting Arnold just seemed like common sense. As soon as i saw the team sheet i knew we'd struggle if Swansea played a low block, because Gomez and Robertson can't cross accurately enough and width is important in these games. They're both better defensively than offensively which is not what we needed in this game.

9.) 23 Jan 2018 12:17:37
Spot on MK, was the right game to try Gomez as CB with VVD instead of the awful Matip. The world knew they would sit back so why such a defensive team, same players who always struggle against the park the bus team, for God’s sake change it up a bit and give the opposition something different to play against. I think MKS idea of another striker would have caused much more concern, why not try it when we struggle so often against these formations.

10.) 23 Jan 2018 12:17:48
I can understand why Klopp was adamant on Sessengon and Mendy! The only way to beat a bus parker is to stretch them using your full backs or try a 40 yard screamer!
Our full backs doesn’t provide any width, which makes our play narrow and very easy to defend against. We also lack any creativity in the middle to unlock such teams.

11.) 23 Jan 2018 12:48:33
Had Salah scored that 1v1 volley, instead of kicking it 10 meters high in the air and had Mane not slipped at that 1v1 volley and had Firmino not hit the post, then probably nobody would disagree with Klopp's tactics :)

12.) 23 Jan 2018 12:50:55
Sometimes you have drop off and allow such teams to have the ball. Draw them out, have faith in the team defensively to win back the ball, then get them on the counter with our greatest threat: pace.

Last night was more of a tactical error. We clearly do not have creativity in the midfield area, and I said this after the City game when someone posted "Coutinwho", that Coutinho is most effective when we play against teams that park the bus. He is a game changer, and has the ability to create something out of nothing. We no longer have that creativity in midfield. And the so called lesser teams (and United under Mourinho) are going to love playing against us so long as Klopp has no idea how to play against these defensive teams.

13.) 23 Jan 2018 13:37:15
Replacing one of the midfield or one full backs might make a small difference but why is no one digging out the front 3? People gave them endless praise and rightly so agains't City, but they were all crap last night.

The formation doesn't work well enough agains't the defensive teams it has been proven too many times now. Firmino runs away from goal but they still have 5 defenders left there is no space. Then he gets the golden chance in the last minute and misses. Our 2 best chances came from VVD crosses, that says it all.

I agree with a lot of other points on Gini, Can etc but you know what you will get from them. It is not there job to breakdown the opposition because they just don't have the ability to do it. I don't think Lallana can do it much better either.

It was a bad bad night but it won't be the last this season and that is the biggest worry.

14.) 23 Jan 2018 13:42:32
To me, all Klopp got wrong was Gomez over Trent - Gomez is not good going forward, never had been and in a game where we knew we would experience sod all pressure on our back line, we really could have done with Trent's directness. Aside from that, we just failed to hit the target when opportunities presented itself. To a lesser extent than the Everton match, we did enough to win it yesterday and any other day Salah and Firmino bury their chances and we've walked off with 3 points. Happens.

15.) 23 Jan 2018 15:46:15
Interesting reads all. What this site should be about. Open conversation rather than bitching and moaning throughout a post.
I can see what your saying about TAA guys. Unfortunately we don’t see what’s going on in the Melwood training facility and we can only surmise to fitness levels of players.
Personally I think overall, the team that started had enough in it to score on more than one occasion. We just didn’t have our shooting boots on.
The only sad factor with Ings (personally I’m a fan) was he didn’t put the ball in the back of the net. Couple of loose touches (happens to all)
What’s to say TAA is in bad form at training and JG is doing okay. A real tough one to call.
With Can and the armband, I think from a previous post I read that Klopp likes to give the armband to the longest serving player on the pitch?
I am very much Can to be sold. It is a business and if he wants to go. We have to get something for him rather than nothing.
Keep up the convo guys. Appreciate it.



27 Dec 2017 22:06:26
Yes Klopp has got it terribly wrong in tapping up VVD in the summer.
Yes we are all entitled to our opinion on this open forum.

Can we all just take in that most of the players that Klopp has signed or has used through the youth set up have come in and done a grand job giving time and patience.

Salah, Mane, Ox, Moreno, TAA, Gomez. Just to name a few. Personally I'm going to give VVD until the summer and judge him then. Remember, he didn't ask to be priced at £75m. That's what Liverpool payed
Welcome Virgil and good luck.


1.) 27 Dec 2017 22:20:38
Fair point gazza.

2.) 27 Dec 2017 22:38:49
I think he will do okay this season for us through to summer. Might even come, click straight away and be that missing piece. Think he should give us that etc to make sure we get fourth at least again.

But he should get a good pre-season specially since Holland aren't going to the world cup. Next season he should be that focal point of the back four.



07 Dec 2017 10:22:13
Ed. Reading previously from yourself that Couts wants out and has been disruptive (complaining) in training. Do you think giving him as much game time and the captains armband last night is a ploy by Klopp to change his mind and stay?


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 07 Dec 2017 10:31:56
hes not staying mate, its either in january or summer, whichever one that will be agreed on.

Get in there Robbie .



17 Oct 2017 08:08:19
I was wondering, would it be possible for the fans of LFC to make a donation pot and raise x amount of millions and give it to the club for use to a transfer?
Not saying it would ever happen. Just wondering if it could.


1.) 17 Oct 2017 09:30:07
There is no shortage of money. £50 mill for Kieta, £40 mill for AOC. £40 mill for Salah. Turned down a potential £100 mill for Coutinho! You could thank Sky for pumping abundance of cash into the game!

2.) 17 Oct 2017 09:47:11
It wasn’t a suggestion it was more of a query as to wethere there was restrictions.
I know there is money to spend with the £70m for VVD still available.

3.) 17 Oct 2017 09:49:50
OP. money is not and will NEVER be the issue as we have the money to buy who we think will help the team We were prepared to pay 150m for both Keita and VVD in the summer YET you want us to make a donation for transfers? Keep your money cos the club does not need it, clearly.

4.) 17 Oct 2017 09:50:41
I couldn't think of anything more embarrassing for the club or as a fan than the fans directly raising money for transfers.

5.) 17 Oct 2017 10:11:56
It happens every week when we shell out a ridiculous amount for a ticket! 😡
If the club was being run responsibly then you could have a conversation, but at the moment, my perception is we are not being run responsibly.

6.) 17 Oct 2017 10:12:33
Your missing op point he's not asking to raise £££ just if it's possible to raise £££ by the fans to purchase a player.

7.) 17 Oct 2017 10:16:47
If we was going to raise money, it'd be for either charities or to the eds for running the websites, which is something id love to see, but to the club, nah, they get enough money from us from ticket sales alone never mind everything else.

8.) 17 Oct 2017 11:14:35
I don’t think it’s allowed, I’m sure I it read on here years ago about someone wanting to put a few million in to buy a player but it wasn’t allowed, sure it was in rafas time.

9.) 17 Oct 2017 14:07:44
You got it Reusch.
I’m not asking anyone to put money into a pot.
I’m asking if it could be done.

10.) 17 Oct 2017 15:01:46
When i was in year 8 I would have given my liverpool piggy bank to get us David Villa.

11.) 17 Oct 2017 16:01:00
This has reminded me of United London FC. Fans don't quite help out with transfers but they do pick the starting line up each week through the website.

Imagine if Liverpool picked the line up from this site every week! Ward and Solanke would play every game and Klavan would probably have been put down.

{Ed001's Note - I know the guy who started that, Mark, nice fella and he has worked incredibly hard to get that working.}

12.) 17 Oct 2017 16:26:34
Such a good way for an amateur team to build a fanbase! Must be a smart chap.

13.) 17 Oct 2017 17:35:39
I think fans should get the chance to raise money to sign a particular player which the majority wants Lfc to sign. We can conduct a poll throughout the season and then raise money.

{Ed025's Note - i think supporters pay enough to be honest Eka what with tickets, merchandise, travel etc, the owners have plenty of money and they will be the ones making the money if the club gets sold so its a no from me mate..

14.) 17 Oct 2017 17:56:32
You're right Ed25, I was just thinking about the possibilities. Us fans have no right to decide what the club officials must do with the money they earn from ticket sales and etc but, If we raise money for a transfer. We can directly ask the club to sign the player our fans want.

{Ed002's Note - it has happened before but certainly won’t be happening at Liverpool. Fantasy stuff I am afraid.}



18 Jun 2017 09:52:00
One for the Ed's.

When we hear of agents and players meeting other teams to discuss transfers. Why is it sometimes they are held in hotels away from the city that they will be playing in?

For instance. Salah's agent was in London and supposedly talking over a deal with Liverpool. How comes these talks don't take place at Melwood or Anfield? Give the guys the home comfort feeling in negotiations.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool's offices are in London.}

My view on Gerrard is as a player he had the ability over others to play different roles and make them his own.
I can remember he played right winger one season under Benitez and scored a shed load of goals, he played behind Torres and scored and created.
In the 05 champions league final I believe he took up three different roles in that game and came out on top in every position.
For England he was predominantly the holding midfielder
They guy had the lot.

Can’t remember any other player doing that for club and country.

Top three for me
Gerrard. Footballing legend
Alonso. Owned the game for every second he was on the pitch. Class act
Makele. The guy just made Chelsea tick with his presence.


{Ed0333's Note - Gerrard wasn’t a great at international level Gaza so he loses points there for me.
