Has Liverpool looked at Xherdan Shaqiri? I feel he would add to our squad and be relatively cheap if Stoke are relegated. He is always looked good for the Swiss team when I have seen them but that's probably been only 5 or so times.

KingCarlos

{Ed001's Note - no he is not a team player, not suited to the way Klopp plays, never an option. There is a reason he plays for Stoke and no one else would touch him, he isn't that good in a team game.}


1.) 02 Apr 2018 06:21:09
Cheers Ed001 - now I understand why none of the "bigger" teams have gone for him. I understand he is one of those you would file under "who looks good on youtube"

{Ed001's Note - exactly. Great at those flashes of good play that make for great highlight reels but does nothing for 89 minutes bar complain about his team-mates.}


2.) 02 Apr 2018 06:21:30
from Bayern munich to inter milan and then stoke, I work with a stoke fan, season ticket holder who regularly tells me that shaqiri is lazy and selfish he also wishes mark hughes had left in the summer as he had wasted so much money on dross which is likely going to see stoke relegated.


3.) 02 Apr 2018 09:20:33
Top teams can’t afford to carry players like that. Stoke have to play him because for all his flaws he’s one of the only ones who can produce brilliance which may keep them up.
Also gobbed off this week about his team mates.
I’m sure he will get a move away if they go down but I doubt it will be to a top club.


4.) 02 Apr 2018 11:40:44
I read the original post and sincerely thought it was a late April Fool’s.


5.) 02 Apr 2018 13:00:01
Gotta question the decisions made at Stoke, that diouf is awful, chupo moting isn't much better, and the rest of the team likewise!


6.) 02 Apr 2018 13:12:08
No way! Good option I feek and sure many others do for really good option from bench and too keep front 3 honest would be Wilfred Zaha really progressed last few years.


7.) 02 Apr 2018 13:15:39
He’s cheap for a reason, he’s like a cheap piece of furniture, looks good but on closer inspection it’s made from chipwood and falls apart within a month.


8.) 02 Apr 2018 13:40:00
zaha is a awful player, his touch is awful his crossing is eratic and his finishing is mediocre, the sort of signing that has held us back for years, far more worthy would be letting woodburn and Wilson have a chance.


9.) 02 Apr 2018 13:45:35
Really Wombat? Zaha blows hot and cold. He was falling over his shoelaces against us.


10.) 02 Apr 2018 14:55:26
I think Zaha would be a better option than Shaqiri.


11.) 02 Apr 2018 21:06:09
I actually think that Kloppers could turn Zaha into a worldbeater.


12.) 02 Apr 2018 22:51:07
He can be little eratic but i honestly belive klopp could get even more from him and he also 9/ 10 is source anything Palace offer yet teams seem struggle keep him quiet, personal opinion off course reds.


13.) 03 Apr 2018 08:46:05
I think Zaha is improving and I do rate him, I however am not sure he would cut it at a big club, he’s great as Palaces focal point as he can make things happen himself and does a lot of good things, he however often loses the ball and runs into dead ends, his final ball isn’t great and doesn’t score enough goals.

He can get away with things like that when he’s the best player at a club but if he was at a bigger club fans would soon get on his back when attack’s frequently stopped through his play.

He could possibly change and improve and that wouldn’t surprise me. I heard on the radio last week Simon Jordan (blinkered eyes) saying he has him on a par with Sane and reckons Zaha would produce the same if he was in the city team.


14.) 04 Apr 2018 11:46:13
Zaha wouldn't get in our side but I rate him.


 

 

30 Mar 2018 03:15:15
I heard that Rhian Brewster has been offered 25K a week on a 3 year deal, anyone else heard similar?

KingCarlos

 

 

09 Jan 2018 11:02:45
Jean Michael Seri and Kevin Trapp are being discussed for this window - Lemar the big marque for next and Mahrez is the smoke screen. Stefan de Vrij as a possbile for summer on a free. Also Klopp likes players from the EPL therefore the rags talking about the Mahrez rumours which is obvious but Jack Wilshere is another possible freebie for the summer.

KingCarlos

1.) 09 Jan 2018 11:39:25
I mean, if you hadn't lost credibility when you said Mahrez was a "smokescreen", you certainly lost it when you said De Vrij is a possible free in the summer. You are aware e signed a new contract, right?

Wilshere was just funny though. I hope this was a wind up 😂.

{Ed002's Note - De Vrij has not signed a new contract.}


2.) 09 Jan 2018 11:58:10
It was reported in Italy that he signed a short extension with a buy out clause Ed, and that he's no longer free to negotiate a pre-contract agreement?

Have the Italian media got that wrong? If he is still available on a free, he represents great value business in my opinion!

{Ed002's Note - He has not signed a new contract but an Italian side are trying to negotiate a purchase this month.}


3.) 09 Jan 2018 12:11:06
Then forgive me Ed. My apologies on that front Mr. Carlos; though smokescreen and Wilshere still have me rather sceptical!

I don't normally believe the media, but it was even confirmed on this site by an editor (Ed0333's Note - De Vrij recently signed a new contract with Lazio with a moderate buy out clause. )

I imagine that Italian side is Juventus Ed002? I hope we push for a deal. De Vrij has a touch of class about him.

{Ed002's Note - It is not Juventus. But I bow to Ed333s knowledge and won't mention it again.}


4.) 09 Jan 2018 12:16:55
Credibility has certainly been dented for someone there.

I do hope too though, that Wilshere isn’t really an option.


5.) 09 Jan 2018 12:20:17
I feel like clubs just don't engage with such things as 'smokescreens'.


6.) 09 Jan 2018 13:00:45
Yes dented whose creditibility? Probably both.


7.) 09 Jan 2018 13:04:26
I don't doubt you Ed002 mate. Ed0333 probably read the exact same report as me. If my memory is correct, it was early November from some Italian media outlet (Messagario? I think) and they said he had signed a new contract with a £27m buy out clause. It was picked up by loads of major outlets so it seemed genuine.

I've done another search online though a some website called calciomercato have since backed up what you're now saying. Apparently he rejected the contract because the buy-out figure was too high.

It's just a simple case of conflicting reports causing confusion. I still trust both yourself and Ed0333 that you'd only give us what you believe to be correct information.


8.) 09 Jan 2018 13:19:14
Mk mate. don't worry, you can still be teachers pet! Lol. I quite fancy signing de vrij (sp) looks decent.


9.) 09 Jan 2018 13:23:36
Is wilshere being looked at for the summer eds?

{Ed002's Note - Not by Liverpool.}


10.) 09 Jan 2018 15:04:49
Wilshere is a smokescreen for Mahrez.


11.) 09 Jan 2018 15:19:14
And Mahrez is himself a smokescreen for Simao.

You heard it here first :)


12.) 09 Jan 2018 15:47:43
You mean Simao Sambrosa? Just the exact person we need to replace Coutinho! How did we manage to pull that off?


13.) 09 Jan 2018 15:49:31
Quite like wilshere myself. Got himself fit and is the stand out player at arsenal atm.


14.) 09 Jan 2018 16:20:03
Benny Baller - when you say got himself fit, he's played about 5 games. I think someone with his record needs at least half a season injury free to start thinking of himself as over his issues.

Wouldn't want him anyway though, I just don't think he has the intelligence to do what we need to do in the midfield or the awareness of the tactical needs of his team. We'd need a lot more rigid structure to play someone like him.


15.) 09 Jan 2018 17:42:25
Why would we be looking at Jack wheelchair?!


16.) 10 Jan 2018 08:55:07
Every time Wilshere is on the telly it is accompanied by stats like first time started 2 games in a row for 3 years or first time played 60 minutes in a decade or whatever. Really not the answer for a top 4 side considering he seems to be as or more injury prone than Sturridge.


 

 

04 Nov 2017 08:52:29
And whilst I am on centre backs that fella Kamil Glik from Monaco is not bad either - any interest in him . I doubt we will be back for VVD.

KingCarlos

1.) 04 Nov 2017 10:55:57
I really like Kamil Glik, but Monaco's prices are extreme and Glik is 29 already.


 

 

04 Nov 2017 08:28:28
Any interest in Jean Claude Billong of Maribor - looked like a decent strong CB to me.

KingCarlos

1.) 04 Nov 2017 10:56:03
For f sake.


2.) 04 Nov 2017 10:56:50
Really? they played with 10 men behind the ball and still lost 3-0 an d we missed a penalty and Salah and Emre both missed an absolute sitter each.

Also another question if possible -
..........

KingCarlos

{Ed002's Note - You are oin the wrong page - this is the Liverpool page. I am not going to answer questions about random players.}


 

 

12 Aug 2017 12:10:24
Coutinho is nowhere to been seen on the LFC website - I reckon we have accepted the reported 120m Euro bid.

KingCarlos

1.) 12 Aug 2017 12:32:25
The side looks balanced now. with no DM I think we need three CM players, with pipco in there sometimes we get caught which leaves the defence exposed. Salah has taken the left position now.


2.) 12 Aug 2017 12:33:29
Meant mane lol.


3.) 12 Aug 2017 12:52:55
Coutinho is still on the team website.


4.) 12 Aug 2017 12:56:34
KingCarlos - Coutihno is clearly on the website under first team players - take another look.


 

 

07 Aug 2017 08:41:50
Would you accept 120 million pounds for Coutinihi?

KingCarlos

1.) 07 Aug 2017 09:06:12
Yes if it's reinvested on quality!


2.) 07 Aug 2017 09:09:09
If the player wants to leave, then yes.
You can't keep a player against his will otherwise he just won't be as committed and you won't be getting the best out of him.


3.) 07 Aug 2017 09:13:31
But we won't invest it in equal quality, that's the point. Barcelona may as well just give us some magic beans for what it's worth.


4.) 07 Aug 2017 09:21:09
Only if he wants to leave. If he is happy to stay I wouldn't sell him. But if he wants to go and any offer over £80m came in I think selling is best for everyone. I really don't get those saying we should force him to stay.

For 80m I am sure we could replace him with someone of near quality and you never know who else might step up next year.


5.) 07 Aug 2017 09:23:23
Think 120 Million would be incredible business especially if the player wants to leave and we invest in the right manner this time. Panic buying late in the window could come into play thou which worries me.


6.) 07 Aug 2017 09:43:18
Angryandillinformed, in the current market £80m isn't near enough for a player of his quality, as for finding a near good enough replacement, good luck with that as there isn't much out there.


7.) 07 Aug 2017 09:53:03
I would not take a red cent for Barcelona or any other for Cou this season, period. He is not for sale cos we will be severely weakened as no team will part with their star players as replacements at this point of the preseason no matter how much money you get for Cou.

If the whole "you can't keep a player if he wants to go" mantra was valid. How did RBL keep NK when we were ready to pay near double his release clause and he even cried out to be let go? How did we keep Suarez who tried every trick in the book to get away from us in 2013? How did Saints keep Morgan, Wanyama and yes, Sadio Mane when they tried to force a move at different times? Exactly. That thinking is totally BS, IMO. That mantra is only true if you don't have the bottle to stand your ground, end of. If they could keep all these players for at least one more season, we can stand our ground and tell Barcelona to jog on. Will we? We shall see if we have the backbone to go the distance, just as RBL did for Keita and so on.


 

 

31 Jul 2017 11:23:08
So how do you think we are doing against our rivals for league / top 4? Chelsea could struggle a little if Morato does not gel but I think he is quality and will do well in the EPL Chelsea should be top 3 at worst. Spurs have yet to buy and with the move away from WHL and CL football could struggle to maintain top 4 - their defense is what makes them top 3 any injuries to Kane, Ali or a CB will hurt them massively as I do not see enough coverage in their squad. Man City have spent big on defense - like LFC attacking is not an issue and I do not see them as title contenders but definitely top 4, how shaky their defense is will define their season. Man U have spent BIG again, not sure about this Swedish CB but De Gea staying is a massive boast. Going forward they have very good options - they still do not look like a team but a bunch of individuals who they would hope perform on different games and not the same. Top 4 is where I see them. Arsenal could be in real trouble with Ox, Sanchez and Ozil all doubts I do not see them as top 6 and the Europa league is an awful comp to be in. Therefore I see Top 3 contenders as Chelsea, Man U and Man City and LFC with Spurs and Arsenal dropping out of this group - your thoughts?

KingCarlos

1.) 31 Jul 2017 11:44:31
I had a similar conversation with myself the other day and concluded that Spurs along with Arsenal will be two clubs missing out on top 4.


2.) 31 Jul 2017 12:18:24
Spurs?

Write them off at your peril!


3.) 31 Jul 2017 12:32:10
not to sure about arsenal if they keep Sanchez think they will have a good season. Spurs I think will really struggle playing at Wembley, big pitch for the way they play week in week out and for every small club going there for players that don't get to play there its like a cup final. SO it is not like a home game and don't think they have the best of away form.


4.) 31 Jul 2017 12:43:43
I think it will be Man utd, man city and chelsea for the title fight with spurs and arsenal fighting for top 4 and liverpool and everton maybe pushing them for top 4 aswell but more likely fighting for 6th place finish. It is time to be realistic we are falling behind in terms of quality and when coutinho leaves it will have a negative effect on us. Spurs are good enough to challenge for the title its just the wembley home matches that may hinder them this year.


5.) 31 Jul 2017 12:52:46
we have added 3 players utd about the same not sure if them players are that good that they now have a better team than us. still think utd will struggle to break teams down.


6.) 31 Jul 2017 12:59:04
I completely agree with u Carlos,
I tip Chelsea and Man City to go all the way


Man City has the strongest squad in the league at the moment, their biggest problem was their defense last
Season and how they wasted time and possession in the final thirds of the pitch. They have addressed that and are still in the process of addressing it. They will challenge for the title

Chelsea was near perfect last season. They are ruthless against the smaller teams
Their biggest problem would be the squad depth especially now that they plan to sell Matic and are in the champions league . they will challenge for the tittle

ManU . Their attack was weak last season but it was almost impossible to outscore them. They have gone further to strengthen. Their biggest challenge was 'no definite game plan'. Top4 is very possible

Liverpool. LfC biggest challenge was squad depth and concentration. The club was doing perfectly till Jan when it lost its key players. They have made some key additions but selling their most creative force, Coutinho would be their biggest undoing.
I don't see them challenging for the crown like this, more signings required. Top4 still very possible

Arsenal. No opinion


Tottenham . Finished the season on extreme high. Not surprised by their silence in the market . Top4 possible.


 

 

24 Jul 2017 06:47:17
Quick Summary From How I see it

Emre Can - I would be surprised if he does not sign a new contract before the new season starts
Philip Coutinho - If there is interest from Barcelona I doubt Liverpool will accept and I doubt Coutinho will force the issue
Naby Keita - This is not going to happen, Liverpool in my opinion have dodged a bullet at this price of 75m +
VVD - I have no idea how this will play out - a complete mess - feel sorry for the Southampton fans
Sakho - No future at Liverpool and I suspect a last day transfer move the likely scenario
The Ox - I believe he will not sign on at Arsenal and leave on a free next summer.

KingCarlos

1.) 24 Jul 2017 08:49:26
King Carlos, Spot on. Like you, The VVD situation is a clusterdump. He is no longer interested in playing for the Saints and no longer interested in playing for another team but LFC. As flattering as that may be, we have turned this kid into damaged goods and we are responsible for the limbo he is now in.

The Daily Fail has said that we are awaiting permission from Saints to re-bid for him again. Don't know if that is true but I think we should just sign him so we can end his limbo cos we were indeed, interested in signing him. Had we had no interest in him, we would never have tapped him up.

KloppShop, in my view there are a number of reasons why we did not get the result today, LFC themselves never got out of 2nd Gear, Moreno on the left was our weak link, I think it was the first time that back 4 played together, Ings had no luck today he could of got a penalty and that punch on him went unnoticed, West Brom scored 2 scrappy goals rather than crafted them out - I doubt Can would have made the difference today.

Are we allowed to face Seville? I thought because they where in our group this would not happen, Would love to get a non English side to be honest, Barcelona and Coutinho would be great, Juve and show Can the step down he will take and also show Spurs how to beat the big boys. Real as they are old and slow - those 3 would be on my next 3 meetings to go on and win the comp.

he is a box to box midfielder often compared to Paul Scholes - for me the fact that he can play in the German National team means he is pretty alright - those Germans know how to do well in the World Cup over the past 50 years.

Klavan is also good at passing from the back, Matip and VVD add the height and muscle we should be a lot stronger at defending set pieces which might make Mignolet look good.

The best aspect about the VVD is that this was the player we want, look at what happened when we went after our plans B or C's. We ended up with the likes of Balotelli and Aquilani. Also when we have taken risks on promising players we ended up with Albero, Aspas, Borini, Allen, Assaidi and Markovic to name a few - how much wastage is in that lot?

Robertson did not have much of a look in today, the team was not as confident in him as Moreno. He did not do much wrong yet he did not do anything special to win the spot, like the lad and he did well enough yesterday but he did not take his chance. TAA certainly keeps Gomes on his toes.
