Hey Ed001, have we shown any interest in Lascelles or Lejeune of Newcastle? You said Klopp wants 2 CBs by next summer of which I assume one will be VVD. Maybe one of the two Newcastle Cbs would be a good options for us considering they would be cheaper than the alternatives bandied about and from what I have seen of them, they seem disciplined enough to be effective in a high line.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed001's Note - not recently in Lascelles, before he moved to Newcastle we were interested, but not since. As for Lejeune, he was being watched by a lot of clubs, we certainly looked at him, but it was Arsenal (if I remember rightly) that Newcastle beat to his signature.}

1.) 26 Sep 2017 16:06:29
I can't see were you said this ed about Klopp wanting 2 new CB's by next summer?

{Ed001's Note - the plan originally was one this summer, one next, to give Gomez a season to see if he was worth developing rather than buying the second one. That was what I actually said.}

2.) 26 Sep 2017 16:51:05
Ok mate. And were do you think we are at now? Still wanting 2 in? Bloody hell its already sounding like another rebuilding job mate next year replacing Couts, Can and 2 CB's already lol.

{Ed001's Note - right now I think Klopp would just be glad to get one in!}

3.) 26 Sep 2017 17:28:45
Agreed. Possibly in Jan?

4.) 07 Oct 2017 07:58:54
Can is replaced with Keita, Couts might not be leaving but otherwise yes I guess there will be full rebuild in the defenxe wich will take time to adapt after .



14 May 2017 05:50:37
Is it true we have signed Robertson? Bit of a bummer imo. Never really stood out for me in the Hull side but hope Klopp knows what he is doing.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 14 May 2017 08:36:36
Whether it is true or not, Robertson is one of Hull's best players. Surely will be an upgrade on Moreno? Might not be the player everyone wants but he will have the opportunity to prove that he is capable of wearing the shirt. At the end of the day, we need a LB. Whether Roberston is the answer is yet to be seen but no point in shooting him down if he has not even kicked a ball for LFC.

Our signings should be based on bringing in players who are better than what we currently have and not singing the next player to make him our next highest earner.

If Robertson does join then good for the lad. As long as he wears the shirt with pride and gives it his all for the club on and off the pitch. That is what we require from our players. Nothing more, nothing less.

{Ed025's Note - some really good positive stuff from you today must have got your conkers last night mate.. :)

2.) 14 May 2017 08:52:56
Ed025, there is nothing wrong with being negative, as long as there is substance to it.

This is our biggest match of the season. 3 points dropped today and whatever we do vs Boro will unlikely have any relevance.

Now we have people moaning about a 23 year old Scot we might have signed. What is wrong with our fans?

In Liverpool’s eighteen title winning seasons, there has always been a Scot in the team :-)

{Ed025's Note - some will always look on the bleak side max and maybe thats how they vent their personal frustrations, for me liverpool have had a good season and are on the verge of completing what im sure was the original goal of getting in the top 4 mate..

3.) 14 May 2017 09:14:44
Where is the robertson news coming from? Any truth? If he is coming let's get behind him!

4.) 14 May 2017 09:19:02
He's a descent young player with room for improvement, if he had an exotic name or came from another league abroad people would get excited about the possibility. Give the guy a chance and get behind him if he signs!

5.) 14 May 2017 09:09:16

I have to admit that I have seen Robertson play, but in my eyes its not just about bringing in players who are better than what we have, as getting someone better than Moreno is hardly a hard thing to do.

Bringing in players just because they are better than what we have has been our problem for years.

What we should be aiming for is bringing in players who are gong to take us to the next level and challenge for the league title and also players that will cope with the champions league (all being well) .

Is Robertson that sort of player?

{Ed025's Note - liverpool are not in the financial position to buy all "worldies" lavers, sometimes you have to take a punt on a few so called lesser lights who you hope fit into the system, the likes of dele alli and VVD have stepped up to the mark and there are plenty more out there who can do the same, add to that the odd youth player who can come through and for me thats the way forward, its also the liverpool way which has brought them great success in the past mate..

6.) 14 May 2017 09:52:01

I'm not stupid enough to think that we can go out and spend 80-90 mil on every single player we buy, but to me our defence is our main problem area and i think that is where most of money this summer should be spent.

I'd rather sort the defence out first before looking for more attacking players.

{Ed025's Note - i agree with that lavers but i also see a goalscorer as a priority mate, liverpool create a lot of chances and they are not being put away..

7.) 14 May 2017 10:14:32
Am I missing something here? We're already signing players although the transfer window isn't open yet?
Is this some sort of pre-signing agreement or has silly season already kicked off?

{Ed025's Note - there are such things as pre-contract agreements flash but i dont believe this is the case here, but inquiries can be made outside the windows mate..

8.) 14 May 2017 10:03:25
Who is VVD? I'm having a mind blank.

{Ed001's Note - Virgil van Dijk.}

9.) 14 May 2017 10:56:53
Lavers, when have we brought in players better than what we had in transfer windows going back?

I do not believe there are even a handful that can be mentioned. Our problem has been signing players at ridiculous fees and wages and replacing what we have with either overpriced or high wage players.

Like I said, Robertson will not be the fan favourite when it comes to signings if it had to be true but surely cannot be worse than Moreno who is struggling to make the bench.

Klopp has done one thing right, each player he has signed permanently so far bar Grujic due to injuries have had a more than decent amount of playing time in the first team this season whereas previously we would sign a players paying way over the odds for them and other instances send them on loan or see them leaving without hardly kicking a ball for us.

If Robertson does join then so be it. In my humble opinion he will be an upgrade on what we currently have available and will not be taking a massive chunk out of the club finances. Having Milner at LB who now clearly has been a stopgap as one of your highest earners is the reason why Liverpool have continuously failed in the transfer market. That is why signing someone like Van Dijk will be yet another unforgettable act of gross negligence.

No more expensive and mind boggling mistakes, we cannot afford to be gung ho in the market anymore and if we want to start building a squad capable of achieving success then their needs to be sustainability.

10.) 14 May 2017 11:48:58

Like you said Robertson can't be worse than Moreno who can't make the bench.

Just IMO for a problem area of the team where we have had a midfielder play all season we need to aim a little higher than that.

Your right we do pay stupid amounts on players but the selling team know we are desperate so they up there price.

We need to aim for players with winning mentalities that can push us up a level.



11 Mar 2017 06:51:01
Hey Eds, is LFC continuing to watch Leandro Paredes? I believe he would be a useful signing with his passing range and help break down stubborn defences which our hard running mids like Lallana and Gini have failed to do.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any efforts at this time.}

1.) 11 Mar 2017 13:12:29
He must have been well scouted as we were trying to sign him in Jan. Just depends if he's up for a move.
Would he get a work permit ed, in your opinion?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool made no offer in January. He would however likely be expensive enough and have wage demands that would ease the passage for a work permit. I don't see any issues if Liverpool were to make a move for him.}

2.) 11 Mar 2017 18:37:23
Thanks ed002 😘.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Ron. He is available and was offered to another club as part of an exchange deal on two separate occasions.}

3.) 11 Mar 2017 19:32:58
I ve watched Paredes in 4 games now due to liverpool link and I just don't see it. He looks a fancy playmaker but in the games I watched he looked pretty useless defensively. both positionally and tackling ability. He goes to ground every single tackle even when it is not needed. pretty cowardly if you ask me. If he plays our defensive midfielder god help us.

Likelwise while I agree he looks good on the ball did very little really in the games I watched.

Honestly I think he's all wrong for the premier league especially but I'll take it from those who have seen more of him if I have misjudged him. I really hope so if we are after him.

4.) 11 Mar 2017 21:42:49
Davey he is more of a midfield playmaker than a destroyer. Your assessment is one of the more accurate I have seen. He certainly won't sit back and protect the defence. Maybe he could be coached to do that, but what a waste of his skills on the ball that would be.

He is very good on the ball, and likes to make little driving runs to get his side forward quickly and open up space in front of him, which he then has the vision to exploit.

As you quite rightly say though he is not that great defensively. He is a bit rash in the tackle and due to his forays forward he gets caught out of position at times.

He is definitely a good player though. He has a pretty wicked shot on him as well; even from dead balls. I think he could do well in the Premier League but I don't see how he fits into our midfield 3. He would give Klopp options though as he could play alongside Henderson in a midfield 2. I think he only becomes an option if we sell Emre Can though.

5.) 12 Mar 2017 02:05:09
I think it's fairly well accepted that Klopp needs to work on his "midfield 3".
Whatever letter of the alphabet you wish to place on Paredes' position. the fact remains he is a player who moves the ball quickly whether long or short.
He is the complete opposite of Emre Can in that respect.
He also has superb vision and can pick a pass which others don't see.
He has a great shot on him and takes corners and free kicks.
Compared to Naby Keita, Paredes is a world beater. Keita is a ball winner, his distribution is average. He's ok at 2 yard sideways passes. Keita offers very little more than Can.
We need more than little short passes across the midfield, we need players with vision. Paredes would be a huge upgrade on our current midfield. Keita would be more of the same - loads of possession and no penetration.

6.) 12 Mar 2017 12:12:50
I wouldn't bite the bullet on that though. I am not sure but everytimeI have seen him play he looked like a proper number 4. Just ahead of the CB's and carrying forward. If he could do a job at the back then I am happy to buy him coz he is excellent on the ball not many hard core DM ain't though.

Disagree on Emre Can's replacement criteria with you MK. We simply do not need another B2B attacking midfielder. Can was played as a DM hence his replacement should be the deepest lying midfielder.

7.) 12 Mar 2017 13:07:43
I largely agree Ron. That is primarily what makes him an upgrade on Can. His instinctive passing and movement doesn't ever look forced. He is a natural footballer. He is everything we wanted that young 20 year old Emre Can to become, and more. I do feel Can was badly let down by Rodgers and Lowe, who both wasted his early years of development playing him in defence.

As you also pointed out Ron, Paredes is a set piece specialist which is something we lack, to put it lightly.

I think he is a good player for sure, but that widely accepted view on the need to adjust our midfield set up would need to be actioned by Klopp. In our current system, Paredes doesn't have the discipline to play Hendo's holding role, he doesn't have the stamina/ power to play Gini's box to box role, and he doesn't suit Lallana's slightly more advanced position. Obviously Klopp could try Paredes in a midfield 3 with a different role in the team to any of the above, but then it has a knock on affect to this whole fluid front 4/ 5 that we have going on. Maybe it could work, but I am not sure on that one.

If Klopp was to put Paredes alongside Henderson in a classic central midfield pairing though and push Gini/ Lallana on a bit to play anywhere in a 3 behind the striker (where they both have previous to score double figures anyway) then I could see Paredes being an absolutely brilliant signing for us.

Paredes was tried in a defensive midfield role at the base of a diamond by Empoli and it really didn't flatter him. His creativity was wasted, his goal threat was stifled, and he gave away a lot of silly fouls picking up a lot of yellow cards in the process. He just doesn't have the awareness or the discipline to play the role. Yet as an all out attacking midfielder he would likely be starting from a position too close to opposition territory. His strengths are driving into opposition territory so I don't know how he would cope with having to find space in between the lines as Lallana or Coutinho can do. That is not something easily taught.

Is he potentially good enough to justofy breaking up the system we have spent all season perfecting? Possibly, but it couldn't hurt to have alternative options in the squad anyway and Paredes is a specialist at opening up defensive teams from the midfield.

8.) 12 Mar 2017 22:31:48
I disagree with most on here as I think Keita would be a better fit. He would just sit in front of the back four, he has a better passing range than given credit for. If Hendo and Wijnaldum/ Lallana knew someone was always behind them they would have more of a licence to push further forward. If Keita covered then other players could do the attacking stuff.

9.) 13 Mar 2017 05:14:59
Sadly looks like Keita might have some serious health issues - hopefully he is ok.



10 Mar 2016 13:57:24
Hey Eds, any truth in the rumors linking LFC with Jonas Hector and Timo Horn, both of FC Cologne? Apparently the club had scouts watch them quite often this season. Quality players both of them imo. Would be significant upgrades on Migs and Moreno.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed002's Note - There is known interest in Horn from another English side but I am not aware of any interest from Liverpool at this time. Hector would be a very odd choice if Liverpool were interested - he is very much a defender who doesn't get forward much.}



11 Mar 2015 05:16:57
Hey eds, any update on Brad Smith's contract situation? Does he have a future at LFC or do u expect him to move on? Hope he gets a chance as i feel heis a much better option than Enrique at LWB and LB.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed001's Note - last I heard he was likely to move on, but I don't know if he has changed that over the course of this season. He was being given the season to prove himself.}

1.) 11 Mar 2015 11:37:27
He didn't sign the contract LFC wanted him to, so he was re-called from his loan and asked to play in the reserves. I expect him to leave this summer.

14 Oct 2017 22:56:13
Any chance of Keita coming in January? OUr current midfield looks so pedestrian and unconvincing. We have 3 "jack of all trades and master of none" midfielders who inspire no confidence going forward or in protecting the defense. Keita has to be an upgrade on all 3.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed002's Note - Try the search engine.}

1.) 14 Oct 2017 23:31:53
He is indeed an upgrade, a massive upgrade. We'd have to pay more I think should we want him in January (somebody correct me if I'm wrong there) - He won't be coming in January in my opinion, let's wait for the summer, concentrate on getting a decent CB in January, that's priority right now.

2.) 15 Oct 2017 02:43:34
I don't think the defence is as bad as made out. A better GK and a CM who likes to defend and they will look much better. I don't think we will do much in January. Maybe VVD if possible but I don't expect 3/ 4 first team additions if any.

3.) 15 Oct 2017 04:25:24
Priority should be signing a CDM and a couple of CBs. No point signing a new GK till Karius and Ward have been given a fair shot. VVD, De Vrij and Nzonzi will make our defense much more composed and solid.
In Jan, its imperative we get in at least one CB. The rest will and should be sorted out in the summer.

{Ed001's Note - why De Vrij? He is very slow and injury prone from what I have seen.}

4.) 15 Oct 2017 04:38:53
Because he seems to be the most realistic option right now, and there is a good chance we sign him due to his contract situation. And he can't be any worse than our lot can he (when he plays)? Just want an upgrade in the CB area, that's it. In a dream world, would be Manolas and Alderweireld but we all know that's never going to happen.

{Ed001's Note - so you just want change for change's sake, rather than making sure they are better? That is how we ended up in this mess, managers buying players who were not better than what we had, just to change things. De Vrij is realistic because he is not that good. We could realistically get a lot of players who are no improvement but that is not a reason to buy them.}

5.) 15 Oct 2017 05:07:30
DE Vrij is better than Lovren and Klavan from what I have seen (which was 3-4 years ago though) . He looked way more composed and solid for his age than Lovren and Klavan do now when put under pressure, that's for sure.
I know that we have not scouted properly before buying in the past, but we need new defenders now. The current ones have had more than enough chances and they continue to make too many schoolboy errors. Its time for a change, whether good or bad coz chances need to be taken on new recruits than persisting with what we know are already average players at LFC. Migs has been at Anfield for 4 years running. Does that mean there are no better options we can take a punt on?
De Vrij will be dirt cheap and worth taking a shot at.

{Ed001's Note - De Vrij has lost his way mate, injuries have robbed him of a lot. Honestly I would not see the point in buying him, he makes Klavan look pacey and he cannot be relied upon. We do not need new defenders, we need better defenders, that is where you are going wrong. Change is not a plus, stability is something we need more. Players can develop a partnership over time, so you do not change just for the sake of change, you change if it is going to improve things. If people would grow up and stop being such spoilt children, tried showing some patience, then we would be in a much better place. I won't hold my breath, as you will still be on here every single time we don't win screaming for new players.

Obviously you are not even able to take the lesson from your own posts. A replacement was bought for Migs, the change you so desire, yet you all got on his case, so he had to be dropped. Now you want to do the same to the defence to set us back even further. Nice one.}

6.) 15 Oct 2017 05:40:24
I did not get on Karius' back. I still strongly feel he should be No.1 or rotating with Ward while Migs gets the boot.
And the CBs have had enough time to gel. Its not working, its obvious. I am not advocating De Vrij but if the club is targeting him, then Klopp obviously believes he can be a solution to our defensive conundrum. And he obviously won't be the only CB targeted. Seems Klopp wants both VVD and De Vrij.

{Ed001's Note - if you say so. More change is what you want, rotate keepers. I give up, this is pointless, modern day fans deserve nothing. You are not advocating, yet you just spent this thread telling us how De Vrij would improve things, yet clearly you have no idea whether that is true or not. This is just ridiculous. The cbs are not gelling because of the injuries, they are simply not getting time to gel because they are all in and out of the side, now you want to bring in someone who has even more injuries to fix it. You can't even figure out what I reply anyway, just talking about how you personally did not get on Karius' back, like that is in any way at all relevant to the point I made.}

7.) 15 Oct 2017 06:15:57
Lovren and matip have only lost 1 game where they have started together, it's getting them starting together that's the problem.

9.) 15 Oct 2017 06:52:32
I am sorry I have never questioned about the front 3. They are the only people that actually functions. My worry has always been a medicore midfield and awful defense!
Give me 38 1-0 and I ll happily take it!

{Ed001's Note - haven't you? You must be the only one who hasn't recently. Everyone else is whining they are not scoring.}

10.) 15 Oct 2017 07:23:32
They are shouting at forwards simply to mask the defense and midfield who constantly bottles week in week out!
Rafa won two league titles at Valencia playing 1-0 football. The pressure on the front 3 is immense every week! They are doing triple shifts due a piss poor defense and medicore midfield! Our CM’s together have scored a MASSIVE 1 goal in between them. The team is not balanced hence we rely on GOALS! No wonder we have the worst GD in the league inspite of scoring 20 goals this season!

11.) 15 Oct 2017 08:00:05
Spot on, Ed. Tth even listening to. They think that cos a player is realistic, then he must be better or he must be better cos he does not play for us. De Vrij is injury prone as he is just returning from a nast injury himself and pace is not his strong suit. How would he cope in a a quicker and faster and more physical league where we play a high line? These fans can't answer that as well cos you know, we should just sign 'insert CB here" even tho he does not improve us.

This is why I backed Klopp for not signing a CB just for the sake of it. If that CB does not improve us, these same people will be coming on here saying he should have just kept the money and waited for his real choice to come free. See how that works? People are simply interested in being right w/ o using any type of reasoning or understanding from the manager's point of view. Klopp wants improvements, NOT STOP GAPS. If you cannot understand that then, no one cannot help you.

Harry, we will not be playing like your god Rafa anytime soon and invoking him every time is pointless and of no consequence. His time has gone and he is history. Leave it be.

12.) 15 Oct 2017 08:48:48
Bingo I understand what you're saying about Klopp wanting improvements and not stop gaps but aren't Roberston, Klavan, Ox and Karius stop gaps as none of them can break into Klopps starting 11. Even Matip has been called a stop gap by Ed 01. I also agree that we shouldn't have just bought a centre back for the sake of it and we need to identify the correct one to play our system and improve us. What I don't understand is how Klopp and his coaching / scouting team only identified VVD as that only player in world football. We held out for the whole window and never actually put an official bid in. This is not a Klopp out post as I love the guy but he and some of the players are not bullet proof whilst others always seem to carry the can.

13.) 15 Oct 2017 09:12:12
FWIW, Id be far more concerned if we weren't creating chances than I am about not finishing at the moment. The tide will turn, the goals will come.

14.) 15 Oct 2017 21:13:30
Jayden, Ed has explained the reasons why VVD was the only one Klopp wanted. You can disagree with that BUT that is the reality as we all know that good CB's are rare and those who have them DON'T sell. The reason I believe that Klopp just could not find a viable option apart from VVD was that even City w/ all their money, needed a CB and had to settle (that's right, settle) for Johnny Evans. Do you want Johnny Evans at LFC? I don't. The thing is that you don't have to agree with a decision to understand the reasoning behind it.

Klopp's reasoning is backed up by facts as LFC have spent years buying players who are poor just to fill a need and we all complained about it. Klopp has stopped that and people are still mad. Klopp is not bullet proof and I have my gripes with him as well (tapping up, late subs., GK rotation for no reason, Migs should be canned etc? BUT I don't slate him w/ o understanding the reasons behind his decisions. That is the difference btw m and many on here who just think things ar black and white with no grey areas of which in footie, there are many. It is what it is, I'm afraid.

15.) 16 Oct 2017 20:41:20
Good reply that Bingo. Only just realised you had replied to my comment yesterday mate otherwise I would have replied sooner.



27 Sep 2017 03:33:03
Looking at our conversion rate, I don't know if we need a centre forward more or a centre back!
Never thought I would have to say that but looks like many fans will be wondering what might have been with a more clinical and ruthless striker up front.
Firmino really needs to start getting into better goal scoring positions and convert simple tap ins which he seems to be missing as well in the last couple of games. But first, he needs a rest. He looks knackered and could do with a rest. We have enough firepower in Solanke and Sturridge to cope in his absence.

Is it possible to check who paid Lovren's salary this week? Did the money come from FSG or Seville?

The one who paid for Matip and Klavan!

2.) 14 Sep 2017 08:29:43
Lfc defending last night highlights the need for centre backs, I don't get it Klopp knew for a season at least how crap Lovren and klavan are yet because he gave Lovren a new contract he wants to keep him, Klopp needs to go to the opticians and have his head tested to realise the fact the need for 2 centre backs, he had all summer to do something about it, I predict out of champions league and out of top 4.

3.) 14 Sep 2017 12:29:41
Deano, if Lovren would have been kept, it would be as third choice as Klopp clearly wanted VVD.

So the window has just about closed and people are already clamouring for Oblak and Carrasco. Boy it didn't take long for the fans to get tired of Mane and Salah, especially Salah who has barely been here for a couple of months. Which winger would you want benched to fulfill the Carrasco fantasies? Mane or Salah?
And Oblak? At least give Karius and Ward a chance to show what they can do before asking FSG to throw 100 million euros at a GK.
I can understand people getting worried about the centre back situation but GK and wide players are the last positions we need to strengthen without giving some promising players already at the club a chance.

Yeah we don't need Carrasco but I'm pretty sure that even if we give Karius and Ward chances they won't be better than Oblak.

Any truth in FSG asking for 200 million euros from Barcelona for Coutinho? Or is it the inept Barcelona board just covering their a***s to prevent a full fledged fan meltdown?
When it was clear as daylight that he was not for sale, they should have moved on to other targets. Bartomeu is definitely getting kicked out now.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 02 Sep 2017 13:35:13
I wonder why they felt the need to release such information as well as why, in their statement, they issued a thanks for Coutinho for trying to engineer a move out of the club. Very brazen of them, Coutinho has not covered himself in glory at all and should be embarrassed by his conduct.

This is completely embarrassing conduct by Barca.

The club coming out and making a statement like this is pathetic.

Coutinho should also be embarrassed by his dream club's conduct in this whole saga. Seriously, the entire Barcelona board is a farce. Who behaves and talks s*** like this?
Stuff like this should be kept quiet and behind closed doors. If LFC have a reputation of dealing with clubs badly, what will those very clubs think about Barcelona now? Who will want to deal with them after the dirty manipulative tactics they use to force other clubs to sell them players? And that too they do it shamelessly in front of the whole world.
I never thought I would hate a club more than Man Utd, but congratulations to Barcelona for taking top spot in that list.

I think probably an element of truth in both. I hope Liverpool did turn round and say €200m or get knotted (why not capitalise on what Pipco tried to do to us) and also Barcelona have to say something to save face. They are already imploding and not being able to sign players isn't going to improve how their fans feel!

As far as I am concerned, FSG have done exactly what we would have wanted here. If we could have gotten 200m euros then I would have congratulated them (as long as it got reinvested back into improving the squad etc)

{Ed002's Note - It is the club not FSG and it is something that is embarrassing given their not for sale stance. They had a price from the start and kept changing it.}

Why embarassing? if Liverpool had managed to get £183m out of Barcelona i don't think there would have been an unhappy Liverpool fan anywhere. Clubs change"not for sale"stances all the time. Im sure that if we sold for £183m and went straight to Southampton and Monaco and offered £100m to each of them they would have bitten our hands off. As for changing prices, why not? Circumstances are always going to affect how much a club asks for a player. We knew Barcelona were desperate. just like Monaco knew in the last coupla days of the window.

{Ed002's Note - You don't find any of Liverpool's behaviour embarrassing then? If Liverpool had of gone to Southampton and offered them anything that would have been the most embarrassing of all after the board and owners had laid another trail of slime with their humiliating apology and their publically withdrawing interest in the player in order to try and avoid yet another charge of impropriety against the club.

Monaco did not know Liverpool were desparate, otherwise Liverpool would have offered an acceptable amount for the player.

Liverpool have been unprofessional, pathetic and embarrassing in their attempts to bring in the players Klopp wanted and need to learn from a series of warnings they have recieved, the formal complaints made against the club, the charges laid against the club, the ongoing legal issue, the fines and the ban they are currently serving. It is a surprise that you think all of this is simply hunky dory.}

I said all summer when people were slating the club on here that i would love the club to conduct their business in the right way, but i wasnt getting carried away or following the sheep when they didnt. Imagine my surprise then when the whole Barcelona machine start rolling into action and it was proven Lfc weren't the only big bad wolf out there.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool remain well and truly bottom of the pile Emre.}

Reynard, he will not go to Man city to be back up for Mendy. Chelsea also have Alonso who is doing pretty well. If Ghoulam wants regular first team football, LFC can give him that. But it makes the Robertson signing all the more baffling. Klopp does not rate him by the looks of it, so why sign him? Should have kept Milner as competition for Moreno at LB. Salah aside, the entire summer transfer window was a utter an dismal failure for LFC.

Makes no sense to buy Ghoulam unless Robertson is given a fair chance. Otherwise why buy him in the first place?
Salah was the only good business this summer. Looks like even Klopp does not rate his own recruits.

Another RB? Looks like Clyne's days are numbered and Gomez might be going back to CB. Not convinced by VVD still especially at 70 million pounds. Klopp needs to get this right with the fees being bandied about.
Any idea which RB the club might look to? Plus we also need a striker with Sturridge not making an impression and both Origi and INgs unlikely to get a look in again. Timo Werner would be a great addition. Along with Gabriel Jesus, he is the other young striker i am most impressed with.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed001's Note - Henrichs, Pereira, Tete, Marusic - off the top of my head we have looked at all four, though it is a long way off so not yet sure which is likely, as it is probably going to be for the summer. The RB was about the next 2 windows. Clyne's days have been numbered for a while.}

Rafa Benitez? Would jump at the chance to return to the club, and he would bloody do something about our awful defense.
And before people jump on my back, I want to clarify I do not want Klopp to leave. BUt its inevitable he will leave at some point for Bayern, so we need to be prepared for that.

Robertson was a waste of money. Just another player signed for the sake of it. Moreno has stepped up and there is no reason right now to drop him for an average left back signed from Hull that 90% LFC fans deep down knew would never make the grade here. Moreno has developed an understanding with Coutinho and Mane on the left, while Robertson simply kept getting in Mane's way every time they played together and KLopp obviously saw that.
I was against the Robertson signing from the get go (Ed002 can attest to me as a Robertson hater) . Nothing against the player but it was painfully obvious there was no logic behind the signing.

PSG have the best midfield in Europe imo. Motta (ageing but still class), Verratti and Rabiot have it all. They actually function as a group, something our midfielders particularly Henod, Can and Gini should learn from.

Matip and Lovren both scored headers from corners away to Palace last season when we won 4-2 i think.

Fantastic player with all the attributes to be world class. Reminds me of a younger Cristiano Ronaldo just entering his prime but without the fitness levels, determination and consistency. The quality is there, but Draxler needs a coach who will play him regularly (when fit) and nudge him to get better and better. The environment at PSG will not let that happen so a move makes sense for him.
A move to Arsenal could do wonders for him, especially if it is to replace Sanchez. Gives him that air of responsibility and a coach who has patience with his players to learn and improve.

I did not get on Karius' back. I still strongly feel he should be No.1 or rotating with Ward while Migs gets the boot.
And the CBs have had enough time to gel. Its not working, its obvious. I am not advocating De Vrij but if the club is targeting him, then Klopp obviously believes he can be a solution to our defensive conundrum. And he obviously won't be the only CB targeted. Seems Klopp wants both VVD and De Vrij.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed001's Note - if you say so. More change is what you want, rotate keepers. I give up, this is pointless, modern day fans deserve nothing. You are not advocating, yet you just spent this thread telling us how De Vrij would improve things, yet clearly you have no idea whether that is true or not. This is just ridiculous. The cbs are not gelling because of the injuries, they are simply not getting time to gel because they are all in and out of the side, now you want to bring in someone who has even more injuries to fix it. You can't even figure out what I reply anyway, just talking about how you personally did not get on Karius' back, like that is in any way at all relevant to the point I made.}
