Danny Ward off to Leicester possibly for 12 million pounds?
Didn't see that one coming. Good fee for someone who barely played for us, but an exciting adventure for Wardy who will be 1st choice if Schmeichel goes to Chelsea.
Probably means Karius stays as backup to Alisson.

Good for him! I have felt sorry for him in recent years. All the best if this is true.


2.) 19 Jul 2018 11:48:57
schmiecal to chelski?


3.) 19 Jul 2018 12:00:00
12m!

behave.


4.) 19 Jul 2018 12:09:15
We're losing our number one goalkeeper to Leicester.

From being 3rd choice to being No.1 and now a possible transfer in a matter of few days. Things change fast in football.


5.) 19 Jul 2018 12:20:45
Sounds like Roma and Chelsea will be fighting it out for Kasper Schmeichel now.

A shame about Ward. Klopp really has messed him about and stifled his development. He should have been sent back on loan last year, after helping Hudderfield to the Premier league, but Klopp decided he needed to have 3 goalkeepers, because clearly two wasn't enough.

Not like Ward played very much, a very bad decision from Klopp in my opinion and another broken promise. He really does have a habit of this, which is a little worrying, because you can gain a reputation by acting like this.

I only hope the lad goes on to have a decent campaign in a new setting. I think Ward will turn out to be a decent buy by Leicester, and, fingers crossed, Liverpool's goalkeeping nightmare will be ended by the arrival of Alisson. Great keeper, little concerned by his habit of parrying the ball back into dangerous areas but that will hopefully be eliminated by some regular coaching.

Still, with or without a CAM coming in, what a team we have this season. Hopefully we can go and win a trophy because it has been so long since I have seen our side celebrate a cup final. This might be the season we do though, I will keep my fingers crossed.


6.) 19 Jul 2018 12:27:47
Just read that and was about to ask Ed if it's true. Would be a very good move for him.

So Tim Krul or Boaz Myhill for 3rd keeper?
Or bring back Cavalieri? :)

{Ed001's Note - I have been hinting about it for a couple of days.}


7.) 19 Jul 2018 12:37:35
Good luck to the lad. He deserves to be playing especially after Klopp has messed him around so much!


8.) 19 Jul 2018 12:55:30
Effectively Klopp added a couple of million to Danny Ward's value by "making him Liverpool's number 1" for a few days.

That's business.


9.) 19 Jul 2018 13:46:46
LFC-S+MANGO Roma apparently had an agreement with PSG for Alphonse Areola in place incase Alisson deal went through so looks like if Schmeichel is to move it would be to go to Chelski rather than replace Alisson.


10.) 19 Jul 2018 13:52:26
If we can get 15 million odd for migs that's 27 off alisson's fee already.

That leaves karius and garabara as back up.

Thats good business indeed.

Good luck to ward. I hope kasper leaves and he gets his chance to show what he can do in the prem.


11.) 19 Jul 2018 14:19:59
So did Klopp actually come out publicly announcing Ward as number one? Missed that interview. Any links, be an interesting watch.

Otherwise is everyone getting this Ward no.1 info from the same set of journos, twitter etc that I see always slammed down as utter bollox? Then becoming a super keyboard warrior ready and waiting to type ‘embarrassing’ as much as possible.


12.) 19 Jul 2018 14:39:17
Man, how bad is going from Courtois (spelling) to Schmeichel? Chelski getting ripped apart!

Hope Becker lives up to his price. I really wanted to see Ward in action at the big stage. Hope he gets his chance in the EPL!


13.) 19 Jul 2018 14:57:00
I know mcfurgen, I’d like to see this interview too. For all we know Klopp said Ward will be given the chance to fight for number 1 shirt. Which is fine. If Ward never wanted to play for Liverpool why did he sign a contract with us? Posters are always complaining that our young players don’t get their chances. Maybe Klopp brought him off loan and gave him a chance and he wasn’t good enough?


14.) 19 Jul 2018 15:20:05
Really disappointed that Ward is going. We should have kept him and given him a chance.
It should be Migs who we should sell on.
Ward is much younger and can still learn.
Migs has had plenty of chances under 2 managers and has rarely been up to the very top end of the Premier League.

For me this is a real bad move by the club and Klopp.

Migs should have been sold or even used as part exchange for AB. The Italian league would suit him much better and away from premier league spotlight.

Now let's see if we can change the goal keeping coaches!


15.) 19 Jul 2018 15:37:13
Explains why he wasn't in the squad against Bury.


16.) 19 Jul 2018 15:49:09
But what do you do if nobody wants to by mignolet?


17.) 19 Jul 2018 15:48:40
I don't understand what all the hue and cry about Klopp telling Ward he has the chance of being his Number 1, is all about (regardless of whether it is documented as true or not) . As manager, what is he supposed to do? Tell him that "listen you're stuck in the No. 2 or 3 position here for life"?

I've never managed a sports team in my life but I run businesses (with a whole bunch of employees) since 36 years. And the number 1 lesson I've learnt about getting performance out of, and retaining, employees, is to keep motivating them and keep showing them the next step up that is there for them to take. Aspiration to move up in life motivates everybody! And I'm sure it's like that in all team sports where squads of players are involved.

So what if Klopp told Ward "you have the chance to be my Number 1"? I don't see it is a lie. It's logical and motivational man-management. And Klopp seems to be a level headed and fair guy, when handing out starting jobs. Otherwise TAA and Robertson would not be where they are. Clyne got injured, TAA (and Gomez) took over and they were deemed good enough to keep their places, Clyne wasn't. Moreno started the season last year, until Robertson took over and showed he deserved to keep his place. And after Mignolet got demoted, if Karius had underperformed or gotten injured, Ward too would have gotten his shot, I'm sure of it. No need to demonize Klopp as some kind of promise-breaking ogre. (I agree that Ward should not have been in the team last year, because he is way better than a No.3, and should have been loaned out, but that's a different matter alltogether) .

{Ed002's Note - It is to do with him repeatedly saying things like this - he has done it over and over. He should simply shut up about it.}


18.) 19 Jul 2018 15:49:09
But what do you do if nobody wants to by mignolet?


19.) 19 Jul 2018 16:22:44
Surely the Belgian reserve keeper will be in demand, if the price is right. Those suggesting either Ward or Karius for our backup have not considered what a 25 year old player needs in their career.


20.) 19 Jul 2018 16:41:31
ArAy1969, I agree with every single word you have written. Excellent post.


21.) 19 Jul 2018 16:28:43
Yes Ed002, I've read before where you have stated that he should stop saying it. But do you mean not saying it out in the press or the public domain, or do you mean that he should stop saying it to players because he is lying and has no intention of ever trying to deliver what he is suggesting? Wanted your clarification, if you don't mind.

{Ed002's Note - He should stop saying any such things in the public domain. It makes him look rather stupid.}


22.) 19 Jul 2018 17:11:16
The problem is that Klopp has made promises to players many times before and has let them down on numerous occasions. If he keeps doing this then he will gain a reputation as a liar, something he and the club will not want. Players will be hesitant to join us if they learn of Klopp's tendancy to promise and never stay committed to those promises. Would you work for someone who had a tendancy to behave as Klopp has in this regard?

Listen, I love Klopp as much as the next Liverpool fan but I am not blind to his antics. Klopp has outdone expectations, a Champions League final was never expected last season, but there are areas he can improve. Hopefully that will come with time.

Either way, it has been a great transfer window, regardless if no one else comes, but I just hope we don't have more cases of Grujic's and Ward's, who have been let down by the manager.


23.) 19 Jul 2018 17:45:10
LFC-S Mango, do you not think it is possible that Klopp made conditional promises to players such as Grujic and Ward who have let themselves down by not performing in training, thereby foregoing the opportunity to feature in the first team? Just a thought.


24.) 19 Jul 2018 17:14:48
Okay Ed002, many thanks. 👍.


25.) 19 Jul 2018 20:01:07
Danny Ward will become a very decent goalkeeper, and we'll remember this day when many regarded his sale as a smart piece of business. He deserved his chance to stake a claim at Liverpool, but he didn't get it. I wish him the very best.


26.) 19 Jul 2018 22:32:31
I think ward will develop. But surely the fact that klopp still trusted migs and karious says how he has trained on.


 

 

28 Dec 2017 04:18:50
Apparently the club is looking at Butland or Alisson of Roma as potential GK recruitments. Alisson is really good from what I have seem of him in the UCL but on the other hand, Im really disappointed Karius or Ward may never get a fair crack at LFC. Really hoped Klopp would give Karius an extended run to see how he does as the talent is clearly there.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 28 Dec 2017 06:20:10
I really wish Ward could get his chance or atleast go out on loan.


2.) 28 Dec 2017 08:08:43
Butland is a great shout and I hope it comes off, he is a personal favourite and more realistic than a Donnaruma let's say, put Gomez next to Van Dijk and let them build a partnership/ triangle, Gomez is going to make some mistakes but he needs to learn and I hope he gets the chance to grow in that position.


3.) 28 Dec 2017 09:30:06
I am over the moon with the VVD signing as central defence has been a problem for us for a number of years. However goalkeeper has been an issue for even longer. If we were to bring in a top keeper (highly unlikely now) in Jan then I think it's a straight shoot out between us and Chlsea (expecting them to spend in Jan) for 2nd. If we continue with Mig then top 4 will be down to who can mess up the least (similar to last season when us, Arsenal and Utd made it look they were trying their best to throw it away every time they had the opportunity) . For me just putting Ward in goal would increase those chances of gaining automatic CL qualification for next season.

{Ed025's Note - liverpool are the second best side in the league jayden and with the signing of VVD and keita i fully expect them to challenge for the title next season if they bring in a decent cat..


4.) 28 Dec 2017 09:26:06
Apparently trapp is of interest aswell have you heard out ed?

{Ed025's Note - he has been mentioned adam but thats about it at the moment mate..


5.) 28 Dec 2017 10:27:50
Thanks ed.

{Ed025's Note - no worries mate..


6.) 28 Dec 2017 10:48:08
If we were to sign Trapp after the VVD signing then there is a genuine chance that we can challenge for the Champions league this year. Our attack would frighten anyone in the competition and with a potential back line of Trapp Clyne Gomez/ Matip VVD and Robertson we could have a chance to keep most teams out at the other end. Albeit I do not know whether Trapp is cup tied.


7.) 28 Dec 2017 12:58:44
I can't say I've watched Trapp but reputationally he didn't sound like a top class keeper. I'd prefer we do what we did with VVD, identify the best possible guy and pay what's needed for him.

{Ed002's Note - Getting the money from where?}


8.) 28 Dec 2017 13:32:49
Sorry ed, I'm assuming we'll have the money to make at least one major signing this summer, I'd use it on a goalkeeper.

{Ed002's Note - and what about FFP and the wages? Liverpool need to be fiscally responsible and will continue to spend but that spending cannot simply be “what is needed”.}


9.) 28 Dec 2017 13:35:35
Coutinho of course ed002. Money has to come from somewhere.


10.) 28 Dec 2017 13:43:26
We are continually told Coutinho wants out. If or when he is sold the transfer fee will eclipse the VVD signing. Thus putting us well within FFP.

{Ed002's Note - It really doesn’t work quite like that.}


11.) 28 Dec 2017 15:25:44
Not a fan of Butland too many injuries and I don’t think he holds that much ability. I’ve not watched much of Trapp, Oblak would be a no go but I’d be cheeky and try for Donnarumma, the fans dislike him they think he’s bleeding the club dry, he doesn’t seem to be happy there, Real Madrid have other targets, no other top teams seem to be desperate for a goalkeeper? Worth a shot.

{Ed001's Note - he wants to leave but his manager is the same man as Balotelli so I am not sure it would be a realistic option, sadly.}


12.) 28 Dec 2017 15:07:06
Ed2, this raises the question, are we sailing close to the wind on FFP?

{Ed002's Note - It will be clearer in February when the accounts come but on wages yes.}


13.) 28 Dec 2017 15:08:48
The financial fair play I know little about so just a question to Ed2 if I may (apologies for lack of knowledge) but is the FFP a seasonal thing? does it go on what we earn? so for example, if Manchester City went and won the Premier League and Champions league which would obviously bring in more revenue, would they have more to spend on players/ wages? Hope that makes sense, I have never quite understood how it works.

{Ed002's Note - It is based on what clubs earn but not all earnings and expenditure are releavant - and it is a three year rolling period.}


14.) 28 Dec 2017 15:38:18
How are city and psg able to spend what they like with ffp, I thought it was same for all and not only if you've rich owners.

{Ed002's Note - They can't spend what they like - they have to abide by the rules.}


15.) 28 Dec 2017 17:31:20
Interesting thanks Ed2.


16.) 28 Dec 2017 22:03:53
From memory its at least partially based on your revenue. As in the more money you make, the more you can spend. So if say we were to get a whacking great shirt deal from Adidas then we could spend more in the market under FFP. Is this correct Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Not really.}


 

 

12 Dec 2017 08:51:32
Rumors of Lemar popping up again. Torn on this potential deal. Will probably have to spend nearly all the Coutinho cash on Lemar and get a quality player to boost our first team but again we could go out and buy better defenders by selling Coutinho and giving Woodburn and Ojo more chances instead of splurging on Lemar. Hope Klopp gets this decision right.

Indian Buzzer

1.) 12 Dec 2017 09:44:46
Sorry but unless you want to challenge for the top four and push for the title I’m sorry but kids with potential won’t cut it. I’m all for giving them a chance but if we’re to compete with the teams above us in the league we also need to compete with them in the transfer market.


2.) 12 Dec 2017 10:08:34
I really think Lemar is the ideal signing to replace Coutinho. Comfortable out on the left where Klopp likes to deploy Coutinho. If Salah is going to stay more central like the last few games then Mane can go back on the right where he looked more lethal last year than he has on the left this year! Genuinely believe this signing would help the team immeasurably.


3.) 12 Dec 2017 11:45:20
Were are these rumours popping up again please IB? I no Ed002 said in the Sharkopod we have interest mate but a deal would be hard to get done.


4.) 12 Dec 2017 12:29:30
Fenton, Lemar's form this season worries me. Maybe because he is not giving his 100% after Monaco sold half their team and showed lack of ambition or he has not been able to adjust with his new team mates. But the money being touted around to sign Lemar is just plain ridiculous. I can understand spending 50-60 million pounds but close to 90 million? He is not worth that much.


5.) 12 Dec 2017 12:41:42
Indian in todays market mate that's the price you're going to have to pay unfortunately. I'm not saying I think he's worth that much but I think he's our best option out there if Coutinho leaves! Regarding his form, I trust Klopp to get the best out of any player so that doesn't worry me.


6.) 12 Dec 2017 13:08:06
Like him, but definitely not done enough to suggest he is a 90m player. Yes in today's market 50-60m but think if 90m is asking price we need to move on. There is still mane's and salah out there for far better value.

{Ed025's Note - they wont be asking you to contribute coco so dont worry about the price mate..


7.) 12 Dec 2017 13:51:13
Lemar shouldn't be the priority! Need defenders first.


8.) 12 Dec 2017 13:45:05
Lol Ed025. Your reply to Coco just made me spit coffee on my laptop screen. You owe me one laptop screen cleaning solution.

{Ed025's Note - i will put one in the post IB mate.. :)


9.) 12 Dec 2017 13:56:27
Ed025, Are you aware were or why this has surfaced from again mate today?

{Ed025's Note - not really KR, liverpool will always be associated with good players mate and he is certainly one of them..


10.) 12 Dec 2017 14:55:07
I would rather we raid Leipzig again for Forsberg.


11.) 12 Dec 2017 15:09:34
Thanks forthe reassurance Ed025 Haha I was getting worried it would near empty my account. (I wish)

{Ed025's Note - you save your money coco im sure the club dont need it mate..


12.) 12 Dec 2017 15:48:46
Cheers ed. I just wish I knew what was fact and what is fabricated mate.

{Ed025's Note - im sure we will find out presently KR mate..


13.) 12 Dec 2017 17:31:51
Yes mate im sure we will. I was kinda hoping you might know mate lol🤔.

{Ed002's Note - I can tell you that whilst in Switzerland and Monte Carlo that another English club have been talking to Monaco about Lemar and another matter in the past couple of days.}


14.) 12 Dec 2017 18:47:32
Ok Ed002. Thanks. You did say there is plenty of interest in him and a deal would be a hard one to get done. Especially if other club ate already making advances. Not likely then by the sounds of it.

{Ed002's Note - There is interest in him from a number of clubs.}


15.) 13 Dec 2017 03:53:02
We won't be getting Lemar. Pretty confident about that.
Someone like Draxler looks a more realistic and like for like replacement for Coutinho (if he leaves in January) .


16.) 13 Dec 2017 07:07:25
IB you started this rumour mate lol.


17.) 13 Dec 2017 20:01:49
The club has already declined to go to 90m level for Lemar last summer so don’t see why would change.


 

 

26 Sep 2017 15:44:41
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 max...you 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
max

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
Ed

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
Max

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.

I know this won't be a popular opinion but I would rather go into next season with Karius and Ward as our GKs than splash a penny more than 30 million for Alisson. He looked good on Youtube but watching him for Roma against LFC and his performances for Brazil in the World Cup makes me believe he just had a handful of world class performances and people are jumping on the 'wrold class' bandwagon.
Not impressed with Alisson at all so far and I think Klopp will give Karius another go which I think is the right decision. Spout all the hatred you want at Karius, but the lad is better than most GKs (especially when asked to play a high line defense) and we will struggle to find anyone better fro a reasonable price. Please no to Butland, Pope etc.

{Ed001's Note - so a handful of games you have watched is enough to convince you that the people who watch him every week have been convinced by a handful of world class performances? You really have not thought this through have you?}


1.) 28 Jun 2018 05:28:42
First of all, I don't think Alisson is world class by any stretch and I find it hard to believe that any one on this site has watched Roma play week in week out to have a solid opinion on his abilities. My sample size is around 10 games but just don't think he is worth all the fuss based on those 10 games. Karius has had some very good games as well and people want him gone just because of what happened in the UCL final. And most importantly, Alisson wants Real. Let them overpay for him. Even if he joins us, he will be clamouring for a move away to Spain in a few seasons anyways, so why all the bother?

{Ed001's Note - your sample size is a few YouTube clips and about 6 games you said a second ago. Now it is 10? I think I am just going to ignore this conversation, it is pointless. If people think they can judge on 10 games played with completely different teams, then they should be in scouting, as they know better than anyone else.}


2.) 28 Jun 2018 05:55:34
I can see where both Indian and Ed are coming from. My concern is that the only games I have watched him in, the CL semis and the World Cup games, were big games. He hasn't looked great in these games and that's were really top draw keepers stand out, on the biggest stage when they have to be really switched on.
Let's face it, there were games last season when I could have been in goal for us, there was so little to do :) But, when it was really needed, Karius had a shocker I'm sad to say. I also think he had some great games to get us there in the first place though.
Back to the main point, were talking a world record fee for a keeper if Alisson was to come. Does anyone know if he's even interested?

{Ed001's Note - top keepers stand out by being consistently good over the course of a season and pulling off saves that normal keepers would never get to. They do not stand out in international duty, where they are working with defenders they don't know very well. Has no one learnt anything yet from all this judging of players in the World Cups? The attackers are the only ones who stand out as it rewards individual brilliance over teamwork.}


3.) 28 Jun 2018 06:05:49
Despite not being impressed by Alisson against Serbia I’d be happy for us to buy him for £70-£80 million. He has to be an upgrade on Karius and it’s not my money.


4.) 28 Jun 2018 06:34:07
I understand WC fever Ed, and I don't claim to have seen him much, it's just a massive amount of money, granted, not my money.
In agreement with you, let's not forget a few purchases after a youth world cup a few years back, Pongolle and LeTallec anyone?

{Ed001's Note - you can run through a huge list of players who looked great in World Cups but never the same for their clubs.}


5.) 28 Jun 2018 06:50:59
Would you stick with Karius for the First XI, Ed001?
Or give Ward a shot, or what?
And I'm not trying to start a war here, lol.

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea as it would depend on how they perform in pre-season.}


6.) 28 Jun 2018 07:07:57
Fair enough, yes.
An interesting watch for past Liverpool games - Newcastle away, 1971/ 72.
Supermac's debut, scored a hat-trick against us.
Late on Clemence takes a goal kick, miscues horribly, the ball spoons up with spin and goes about 35 yards.
It reaches MacDonald, who can't control the spin but races on to it anyway and beats Clemence to the ball just outside of the area. Clem comes tearing out, Supermac lobs the ball past him and then gets cleaned out Schumacher-style by the Liverpool keeper.
The ball misses the net, I don't think Clemence gets booked even, and Supermac has to be helped off concussed.
Now that's how to do a keeper howler, brilliant.

{Ed001's Note - but would you have signed him after seeing that? ;-)


7.) 28 Jun 2018 07:19:11
Definitely not, bring back the Flying Pig I say haha.

{Ed001's Note - now there was a sweeper keeper!}


8.) 28 Jun 2018 07:42:21
many years ago i was taken to watch Coventry v Stoke. A certain Gordon Banks was in goal and his mere presence between the sticks put the fear of god into the strikers, to the degree that Willie Carr, when presented with a penalty, misssed the goal by a good 2 yards. that's what we need now, a keeper that makes attackers feel they hve to find the corner!


9.) 28 Jun 2018 08:04:19
Oh, and what about El Hadji Diouf after the WC? What a buy he turned out to be. I remember a few commentators stating he was the best transfer we'd ever done at the time.


10.) 28 Jun 2018 08:19:28
Lev Yashin was blamed by his nation and the world for causing them to lose in the 62 quarter finals, he is still the only keeper to win the Balon D'Or and recognised as the greatest keeper of all time for his record not over one match or one tournament.


11.) 28 Jun 2018 08:41:07
To be fair ed we got a good close up of all those saves he made in that cl semi f8nal he was apart of.

Made saves no other keeper would make for sure! Kept Roma well in. Worked with defenders he knew and was outstanding 🤣

Just taking the Mick mate. I know what your saying!


12.) 28 Jun 2018 08:43:30
Quite enjoyed reading this convo on Alisson and keeper situation ed. Your not one that thinks Karius can improve overtime and become the keeper we need and Klopp wants then? I thought was no chance on Alisson, I guess until Madrid sign him there is always a slim chance.

{Ed001's Note - he may do but not with our coaches.}


13.) 28 Jun 2018 08:55:12
Perfect example of this is Mexico GK sensational at most world cups i have seen him play Club level not very good.


14.) 28 Jun 2018 09:16:44
Same with Claudio Bravo and Keylor Navasc Kloppers.


15.) 28 Jun 2018 10:32:02
I'm yet to be convinced on Allison myself. Mainly by him not dominating his area and how he seems to stay on his line on crosses.
However, if you'd never seen DeGea play for United and only watched him in this world cup you'd wonder was everyone else mad in the head for rating him.


16.) 28 Jun 2018 12:53:29
I think you need a season to judge a player. You need to attend games. And when you've seen someone be shaky since they signed and then go throwing the ball to the opposition In a champions league final and blow it all for your team, club and it's fans, then it becomes fair to say, that Karius lad we've got in net is absolute garbage get him sold.


17.) 28 Jun 2018 16:26:48
Of course you can't judge a player on 10 games but, you can usually spot a world class player from a mile off. Alison has never looked world class to me.

70 mil signings that fail can mean the end for the manager. It's too much to risk on a keeper. Oblak would be better but I think we will end up with butland and that's fine with me. We would be harder to beat we ith Jack in the sticks.

Where are these ridiculous Asensio rumors coming from? We are not selling Mane or Salah this summer to fund a move for Asensio. Journalism at its worst. They must have mixed up PSG and FSG when linking Asensio to other clubs.

Still think the Fekir deal will go through, but after the World Cup. Till then, conspiracy theories will be in full force (LFC fans are known for being impatient with transfers) and instead of enjoying the World Cup, many will be b******g about FSG and our medical team for being penny pinchers and playing it too safe.
The bottom line is that Aulas is ahard negotiator and Fekir will leave on his terms, not ours. Imo, te deal will happen once we up the price a little.
If not, there are some quality alternatives like Draxler, Hiyech and Lemar who have been extensively scouted. Let Klopp and Co do their jobs and just enjoy the World Cup for now.

Lol I'm with Burkey on that one, I don't really like the WC, well I should rephrase, I don't like watching England in the WC. I hope England get smashed all over. The majority of them lads aren't passionate enough and think they're better then what they are!

We also need a DLP that can control the tempo of the game like Kroos and Modric did in the second half. Also wanna see Karius stay between the sticks next season as one shocking performance in a UCL final does not make a GK bad. The lad will learn from this if given the right support by the club and fans. Unfortunately, a majority will see differntly and KLopp may well target a first chocie GK this summer.

I doubt anyone here follows the Belgian league so the best we can do is YouTube.
He looks ok in those but think a move to LfC will be too big a step up imo. Shaqiri for 15 million is the much safer option.

Think we will sign only one winger this summer to cover for Mane and Salah, most likely Shaqiri. Wilson will probably get a shot as well. So don't see the need for Simon as well as it would be overkill and send a wrong message for our young forwards looking for game time.

Indian Buzzer

{Ed0333's Note - anyone see this Simon fella play? Maybe he’s better than the young forwards we have? I’m all for having the best possible players over a kid whose not up to the grade.

Davey Sulls, there are barely 5 Gks in the world that could fill a fan with 100% confidence. Just like centre backs, the quality of GKs is really poor right now bar a few exceptions. Strakosha according to some reports is one of the few good ones. Karius also imo is not too bad either (bar the UCL final) .

All local reports though. The club are either not telling them anything or providing them with bogus info. Or maybe the LFC journalists know the real stuff but are being asked by the club to not divulge anything after the VVD fiasco.
Fekir will probably sign. Klopp wants him too much to not make another effort especially after going all out in this window to challenge City for the league next season.

If any of the front 3 was leaving, then we would be looking for a versatile wide player who could play up top. Fekir's best position is CAM and he would be no replacement for someone like Mane.
People need to stop worrying about money. That's the club's job. Just enjoy the fact that we are shopping in a world class mall than in a flea market like in the past (remember Poulsen and Konchesky) .

Ron, I think Klopp's obsession with fekir is more to do with his unique individual qualities (which our other players don't possess) than his overall ability as a footballer. Klopp will expect him to play around 75% of the games, especially when the opposition park the bus. Otherwise a midfield trio of Hendo, Fab and Nab looks the best balanced against top opposition. The CAM conundrum for Klopp requires a player with a particular skill set and Fekir seems to be the only one that fits Klopp's requirements. This has everything to do with Fekir being Klopp's ideal CAM rather than his overall ability as a footballer (which ain't too bad btw) .

Agree about offloading a few players before signing Fekir. The wage bill must be off the charts right now, so as long as Lallana can prove his fitness we can do without Fekir for now. But if Fekir comes in, people like Origi, Ings, Markovic, Migs, Karius, Kent, possibly Sturridge all need to find a new home to reduce wage bill and not fall foul of FFP.

No player is worth the fees clubs throw around for their services. The market has gone out of control and we need to accept that. I just hope Alisson can handle the pressure of such a big fee and the fanbase gives him the chance that Karius never got after he made his first mistake.
