Not a rumour from anybody with any inside knowledge, but an Italian Engineer I work with says the general consensus in Italy is that the Alisson deal's done, and he personally reckons that his team (AC Milan) will sell Donarumma to Roma as the replacement. He's just a random Italian dude so take it with a pinch of salt. The Italian equivalent of "Keith down the local says so and so" 😂.

Allisson bid accepted. £66.8m.

2.) 18 Jul 2018 12:52:12
Sergio down the pizzeria said so MK.

3.) 18 Jul 2018 13:31:46
It was more like "Lorenzo down at the Colloseum said-"

4.) 18 Jul 2018 13:39:02
Lorenzo IS Sergio's cousin and the name of the pizzeria IS The Colloseum, so I was right Adam😜.



10 Jul 2018 08:47:42
Not my rumours, just things I've read this morning.

Taiwo Awoniyi signs a new 5 year deal and and then joins Monaco on loan for 2 years?

Liverpool have contacted Juventus regarding Marko Pjaca and been quoted a price.

MK Scouser

1.) 10 Jul 2018 09:00:26
Strange one about Taiwo, not sure how his development will go there. Will he even make the bench? All the best to him and hope it works out and we get a cracking player back. Cheers mk.

2.) 10 Jul 2018 09:29:38
Interesting one for Taiwo, thanks Adam, I think I read the same article earlier!

Makes absolute sense to me. Looks like Brewster is the one who's going to make the step up from the U-23s to the first team squad this season, and Solanke is pretty raw into the first team too.

Nice to give Taiwo a bit of stability and an opportunity to establish himself at a team that is at least Europa league level.

This may have formed part of the Fabinho negotiations as well.

3.) 10 Jul 2018 12:00:34
Eds or anyone that has seen Taiwo Awoniyi play.

Is this guy any good? Will this guy have a future with Liverpool or should we expect that he will be off soon.

I'm usually pretty good at keeping up with youth players but I have no idea what this guy is like as a player.

4.) 10 Jul 2018 12:56:41
Whilst i would be ecstatic about this happening i think the step up to be playing regularly for Monaco is too great a jump.

From what i read it was more the case he was going to remain in belgium but for one of the top teams e. g. Anderlecht. meaning he would be involved in europe.

5.) 10 Jul 2018 13:45:50
Taiwo Awoniyi must be very well thought of.

Im with george t on this one

Anyone seen him play enough to give an assessment on his potential?

6.) 10 Jul 2018 13:49:02
Monaco seems like a strange place for him to go, alright. The quickest way for him to get a work permit is to get into the Nigeria squad, and he'll have to be playing regularly to do that.

As for his playing style, think of Heskey but with more pace and better striking of the ball. The kid has a looooooooooooot of developing to do, though. He was only starting to finally find some consistency of performance last season, and will need to be starting games regularly to continue that.

So yeah TSR, it would make a LOT more sense for him to go to Brugge, Anderlecht, Liège, Gent or Genk. But of course, if he does end up at Monaco, I'll hope he becomes a roaring success and takes Falcao's place etc etc.

7.) 10 Jul 2018 15:49:44
Literally never seen him play aside from YouTube. I always forget about him every season!



02 Jun 2018 13:40:11
Looks like Jack Butland is happening lads. Bookies have seen a huge spike in bets this morning. Someone knows something I reckon, and Macca has backed this move to happen since day one.

MK Scouser

1.) 02 Jun 2018 14:13:50
Such a shame, not good enough, never will be.

2.) 02 Jun 2018 14:14:32
Poor choice imo. He he a flapper.

3.) 02 Jun 2018 14:27:32
Christ lads. With fans like you around, who needs enemies .

4.) 02 Jun 2018 14:29:34
Remember the last Keeper we signed after he got relegated?
Me neither.

5.) 02 Jun 2018 14:53:29
Piss poor if you ask me. A position that require a top class performer and we go for a bottom half keeper again.

6.) 02 Jun 2018 14:57:06
Not good enough just like Robertson. Trust in Klopp - he doesn’t get transfers wrong.

7.) 02 Jun 2018 15:03:27
In Klopp we trust. Din everybody groan and sigh when we sign Mane? Butland in hands of Klopp will be a De Gea.

8.) 02 Jun 2018 15:11:38
False equivalency comparing a dodgy keeper with an under rated left back. The flaws in Butlands game are easily exposed and will be time and again. We may as well stick with Karius as he is not a better keeper by any stretch. He has looked shaky AF all season.

9.) 02 Jun 2018 15:13:40
Hope not he’s last choice I’d want. got to be oblak Allison imo.

10.) 02 Jun 2018 15:15:23
L. C Karius in the hands of Klopp needs I say more

It is pointless us sending big money on all different position in the team with a 2nd rate keeper standing behind them. I think we need a top keeper to mount a serious challenge which we haven't had in a long long time.

11.) 02 Jun 2018 15:19:30
Remember a few seasons ago I think the bookies even suspended betting on Ribery joining us. Means nothing.

12.) 02 Jun 2018 15:24:39
I don't put much faith in what bookies say, they are simply out to make money for their companies, however if it's Butland, it's Butland that comes and so be it. If it's true then be prepared for endless days of whinging and whining about it.

13.) 02 Jun 2018 15:34:17
If it's Butland let's give the lad a chance.
And I very much doubt he'll be coming as second choice goalkeeper.

14.) 02 Jun 2018 15:39:07
We don't need a keeper. Kieta mane salah Bobby and the ox running at teams. Just win 8-5 every week.

15.) 02 Jun 2018 15:39:31
If it’s Butland that comes then it’s just more of the same. He’s nowhere near a top class keeper as he’s shown.

16.) 02 Jun 2018 15:48:05
Is that ‘give the lad a chance until he drops an absolute howler in an important match’? You cannot tell me he’s a significant improvement on either of Mignolet or Karius.

17.) 02 Jun 2018 16:15:29
Everyone is entitled to an opinion. its also not moaning and every one of us would get behind him if we sign him. doesn't escape the fact as a goalkeeper he is no better than what we have. And saying Klopp will make him better? How? don't believe Klopp coaches GKs!?

18.) 02 Jun 2018 16:38:31
Not good enough. We haven't had a decent keeper since Reina and it has cost us. Seeing as we're able to offer champions league next season and having reached the final this year, it makes us a more attractive proposition. As such, we should be going all out for someone that is top class. Butland isn't IMO.

19.) 02 Jun 2018 16:42:16
This will be our best signing of the summer by far. I am well excited. Let's hope it happens quick.

20.) 02 Jun 2018 16:47:19
Butland is just an Englishmans karius. Could be worse thought. Could be going for Hart. It's shame we are scrimping on the most important position. But I've seen teams with crap keepers win trophies.

21.) 02 Jun 2018 16:52:59
Here we go again, pushing players out before they’ve even signed. Where have we seen this before? Ox, Salah, mane, VVD, Robertson. All have been tarnished with the ‘ ‘not good enough, never will be’ brush.

Wouldn’t be my pick but I’m not a scout or a top class manager. Butland hasn’t been the same keeper since he came back from injury though he was one of the best in the league a couple of years ago, he’s not short on ability, just needs to get back to his best form.

22.) 02 Jun 2018 16:55:57
Who needs a decent keeper when we will be scoring 5 plus goals every game.

23.) 02 Jun 2018 17:05:39
Farmerfc1515, if that’s the case. Save £40m and play rush goalies instead.

24.) 02 Jun 2018 17:54:16
Rush Goalie!
Haha hahaha
Take me back down memory lane 😂😂😂😂😁😁.

25.) 02 Jun 2018 18:09:34
Haha. Why not! Who needs goalposts as well, just use some bloody jumpers.

26.) 02 Jun 2018 18:09:37
Rush goalies one of the greatest things ever. Fact!

27.) 02 Jun 2018 18:45:32
Ice hockey teams have the option of taking the keeper off to bring on another player. Be fun thing in footy.

28.) 02 Jun 2018 18:47:50
“Robertson is sh*t and will never be good enough”

“Oxlade Chamberlain is sh*t and will never be good enough”

Round and round we go. Trust in the manager? 🤷🏻‍♂️🔴.

29.) 02 Jun 2018 19:02:53
Don't judge butland on last season. Came back from a serious injury.

Imo he has potential. would prefer a of the shelf but not devastated if it's him.

30.) 02 Jun 2018 20:29:27
Absolute madness to spend 80m on a keeper. Everybody goes on about Allison yet we stuck 7 past him. Oblak isn't leaving Madrid. If we do get Butland so be it. Klopp doesn't buy to many duds.

{Ed0333's Note - I totally agree mate. Listen I’m no goalkeeping expert but Becker didn’t look anything like the beast the world keeps telling me about against us. I know he’s highly thought of on here by Ed’s and reds and he maybe be outrageously good but to spunk a world record fee on him would be in my opinion risky. Far better to have 2 decent keepers vying for number 1 and spending the money on Fekir, Dembele etc.

31.) 02 Jun 2018 20:50:42
Typical keyboard warriors on here. Butland, who has yet to make a mistake for Liverpool yet, getting slated in favour of a keeper who has made more mistakes than he’s made saves.

Butland is light years better than Karius and I can’t understand everyone saying he will be no improvement. If we picked up a keeper from the Conference he would be an improvement on Karius.

{Ed0333's Note - good evening Mr Butland didn’t know you frequented the site.

32.) 02 Jun 2018 23:15:13
Redmersey, Butland is a bang average keeper (at best) who is lower table fodder. Fact is that a top class keeper like DeGea wins Man United 15 points a season and that’s what we should be aiming for. Butland has cost Stoke more than that this season with a combination of throwing the ball into his own net, dropping crosses, letting in easy shots (particularly at the near post) and lacking concentration at vital moments as well as the fact that he’s as nimble as a Tiger 2 Tank. So when you say that he hasn’t made mistakes, you could not be any further from the facts. He’s made loads of them. Typical of pretty much every English keeper around. He’s turning into Joe Hart at an alarming rate. So he’s not a significant upgrade on Karius and every mistake that Karius has been pilloried for, Butland has done. Except we’ll pay £40m for the privilege of seeing an Englishman doing it instead.

33.) 02 Jun 2018 23:05:00
I’m not a fan of butland myself as I would be worried about any of the relegated keepers. But we have to ask, behind that defence that went down, would any keeper have looked good?

34.) 03 Jun 2018 08:59:52
Frankly you have been up and down this site slating butland for a couple of weeks now, has he done something in particular to you. 😂

He is a good keeper that just needs to recover his form and confidence. He can be a much better keeper than karius, just needs to prove it. In fact karius maybe needs the close competition to improve himself. Im not opposed to this at all.

35.) 03 Jun 2018 09:56:46
My mate's a avid Stoke fan and recons Butland was a big contributer to their relegation.

For my twopenny worth either upgrade or stick, Butland at best is a slight upgrade and certainly not worth throwing a fair percentage of the budget at.

Becker on the other hand plays the style Klopp wants is young and highly rated by more informed people than us, I can't remember the goals he shipped against us but none were like last weeks.

36.) 03 Jun 2018 10:56:18
Don’t look at next club betting markets, they are so volotile and normally limited to low amounts, it wouldn’t take much to send odds tumbling.



23 May 2018 12:40:45
Ed001, obviously Can will leave and we'll need to find someone new to compete with Hendo for the holding role. My question Is, that if we can't get the first choice player, Ceballos, is there a chance Klopp may give Pedro Chirivella the chance? He was arguably our most successful loanee last season.

Or is it a case of Chirivella not having a future, and would we just move on to someone else we've scouted like Doucoure, Ndidi or Obing?

MK Scouser

{Ed001's Note - Chirivella is planned to have a shot at cementing a place during the pre-season friendlies.}

1.) 23 May 2018 12:58:40
Would love it if he took that chance, he's done so well for two years on loan now.

2.) 23 May 2018 13:48:37
Cheers for the insight Ed. Like hjikle, I hope he does well too. He came with a big reputation!

3.) 23 May 2018 14:17:51
I see the consensus on Ceballos is that he would play the deeper lying role. I confess to not seeing anything of him live, I only watch Liverpool.
From what I have seen of him on the one and only YT, I can’t imagine it. I don’t think he has played there before and looks more of a link up player, running with the ball, short passes into forwards etc.
Like I said, I don’t know, only ever get time to watch Liverpool and YouTube as we all know is no real scouting tool but is that what we think is to happen with him if signed?

4.) 23 May 2018 14:35:43
I think he would be a good squad player for next season, keeps the play ticking over and reads the game well.

Obviously if we are bringing in more players then get him out for more experience but I would be upset if we din see him don a Liverpool shirt at some point!

5.) 23 May 2018 14:40:31
If he proves to be good enough, do you think that would cause the club to change their mind on ceballos?

{Ed001's Note - no idea.}

6.) 23 May 2018 16:14:59
I have no idea what position the player prefers barnsey, but he has made 131 senior appearances, and 65 of those he started the game as a deeper midfielder. He has started 38 other games either on the left midfield, attacking midfield or the right midfield. Sub appearance positioms aren't recorded.

He is much better in the deeper midfield roles, because he is not a quick dribbler and doesn't score many goals. He wouldn't fit the attacking roles in our system at all. He is still only very young and has been used as something of a utility player for most of his career so far, but his best position from what I have seen is definitely in a traditional midfield role. I actually think he'd be better in a midfield two myself, alongside Keita or Henderson.

If he was the sole holding player in a midfield 3, he might get overwhelmed at this age, with his lack of experience. The Spanish football fans liken him to Luka Modric. He is basically a midfield playmaker who can also chip in defensively (he loves a tackle), but he can also cover the more attacking roles to an okay level. He's not a pure defensive midfielder for sure, but neither is Henderson. Klopp Doesn't play an orthodox DM.

7.) 23 May 2018 18:38:59
With the window shortened and WC taking place I don't think the club will take a risk. They will go for Ceballos if not another player of his mould. Seriously it's going to affect the youngsters as Ed001 pointed earlier.

8.) 23 May 2018 22:11:29
Spot on, Barnes. Never seen Ceballos play BU I watched some youtube highlights and a DLM, he is not, I'm afraid. Maybe others can help me here.

9.) 23 May 2018 23:47:08
Brover, you have to remember that a YouTube highlight reel will focus primarily on goals and assists. Most of these came whilst he was playing in attacking positions (naturally) . So his YouTube highlights only tend to show him in games he played further forward. It would be a boring highlight reel if it was him intercepting a passes, making tackles and playing a forward pass to the attacking midfielders.

You'd have to research him more extensively than YouTube. Watch him in full games. Read detailed scout reports and player profiles etc. YouTube only picks out exciting bits and doesn't comprehensively cover everything about any player.

10.) 24 May 2018 03:57:25
So true MK - he's one of our most important players but have you looked at a Henderson highlight reel recently 😂.

11.) 24 May 2018 07:48:10
It's a shame that with the shortened window, it's less likely chiravella will get a shot to prove himself.

12.) 24 May 2018 20:06:17
@ SGRed - I actually looked at a Henderson highlight reel a few weeks back to compare it to a Jorginho highlight reel, and I have to say Henderson looked better.

And I think they were done by the same person.

It did contain virtually all of his attacking play this season, tbf, but how do I know the Jorginho one didn't contain all of his attacking play?

13.) 25 May 2018 03:00:04
I nearly feel asleep at the one I saw of him. Tackle, pass, tackle, pass and a few excellent diagonal balls thrown in.

Not knocking the guy, I think he’s outstanding but frankly speaking the deeper role just doesn’t make for an exciting YouTube video IMO. If it does, they’re probably doing it wrong and taking too much risk!



11 May 2018 10:48:52
Kloppsreds17, you asked where Ed002 said about Fekir and Fernandes, so i've put together a quick overview of all the latest info we have been given by the Eds. I save the important replies on confirmed Transfer targets so I can try and watch them!


{Ed002's Note - As a special treat. Liverpool have no agreement in place for Lemar, Maddison, Fekir nor any other of the done deals at this time. They will look to adding a versatile attacking midfield player as an effective replacement for Coutinho. AS has been explained a number of options have been looked at and there are scouts still looking at players across Europe and they will have looked at the likes of Fernandes, Fekir, Draxler etc. Specifically, the Lyon Sporting Director has spoken recently (since Fekir reurned from injury) with two sides, one English and one Spanish but Lyon would like the player to stay and are very difficult to deal with. Arsenal has had a long-term interest in Fekir but whether the new senior management will continue the interest AW had in the player is unclear at the moment. So right now Fekir has certainly been watched by Liverpool but they have not discussed anything with the Lyon owner or Sporting Director - but perhaps they will. }


{Ed001's Note - we did look at Jorginho, Seri, Weigl, Torreira and Lo Celso off the top of my head. }

{Ed001's Note - I will try and do something if I get some time mate, can't promise anything though Ceballos is still number one target. }


{Ed001's Note - yes right back, we have looked at hundreds mate, bit soon to get certain names of the likely targets. We have looked at Hysaj, but I would expect him to be out of reach now with Napoli not wanting to sell. The Sociedad right back Odriozola, though he is a bit too attacking for my liking, as he also play midfield. There are a few in Germany, Heinrichs, Elvedi and Weiser and the Leipzig one, whose name I have forgotten. Lots more too though how many of them will even be in the thinking when it comes time to try and buy one I don't know right now. Oh Bilbao's right back. }


{Ed001's Note - we are also keen on Pepe Reina as an alternative to Navas by the way. If Ward goes, as seems likely, we will look out for a 3rd keeper who can also work as a coach, but it is not seen as a priority. To be honest I think, and this is just an opinion, it will be left for now and Klopp will just take a chance on no injuries happening. }

So those are the latest confirmed targets, but you can scratch out Weiser who has signed for Leverkusen, and Jorginho who is likely to sign for Manchester City.

MK Scouser

1.) 11 May 2018 11:03:02
Cheers MK. I remember that conversation now mate. I thought there was something more recent.

2.) 11 May 2018 11:02:18
Thanks MK nice summary of the awesome info we get from the eds on this site.

3.) 11 May 2018 11:36:02
nice one MK. I am sure though someone else will ask the same questions later on today.

Fekir without any doubt my first choice.

4.) 11 May 2018 12:47:00
markp08, I'm not sure Fekir is certain to move anywhere next season if what his father has said in the last day or so is correct, that he wishes to play for his boyhood club ( Lyon ) if they secure CL for next season.

5.) 11 May 2018 12:49:22
Markp08, look at the first post on the banter page 😂 you couldn't write It!

6.) 11 May 2018 18:00:27
Cheers MK although dunno how we are going to be able to throw out random names and piss of the ed’s If you’ve left the most up to date! 🙄.

7.) 11 May 2018 18:31:17
Hi everyone, new to this site.
I'm from Germany, so i just thought i'd tell you what i know about the RBs from Germany, that were mentioned.
Henrichs is a young talent, has played a few games from the start and been subbed on a few times. Bayern have been linked with him after a few good performances at the beginning of the season, but could have just been paper talk. Not so good lately and i don't think we need that now.
Elvedi is originally CB, he's doing well at RB, but offensively he's not enough of a threat.
Weiser is going to Leverkusen, so he's out and it tells you another story about Henrichs.
The guy from Leipzig is named Klostermann and he's a real talent. Unbelievably quick, has to work on his positioning though. He had to recover from a long term injury, but his been back in the Leipzig squad lately. Might have actually been and might still be a surprise candidate for the Germany World Cup squad. He would be the one i would try to sign ;)

8.) 11 May 2018 21:30:14
Nice one MK.

9.) 13 May 2018 07:55:52
Fekir and cabellos 😍😍 along with keita should make our midfield a lot stronger and more versatile for whatever comes our way.

Starting to get a good squad gathered together now. Great to see and a good time to be a liverpool fan.

Now just need to decide who gos on the new top I got yesterday lol prob salah again😉.

10.) 13 May 2018 19:29:27
To see reina again in a Liverpool shirt would be great.




MK Scouser's banter posts with other poster's replies to MK Scouser's banter posts


17 Sep 2018 20:34:28
Ed001, I've recently started playing as a right back for a Saturday League side. I've never played the position properly before though, so I'm struggling on the positioning side of things. It's easy to see on a TV camera, but not so easy on the ground in the thick of things. Are there particular triggers you should look out for regarding when to overlap, and when not to? Or when to defend narrow and when to hug the touchline?

I'm really enjoying playing a more defensive role but I feel like I'm having to sprint too often because I've not read the play well enough. It's easy to point out mistakes, but I have no idea how to correct myself. I know I'm not spotting danger early enough but I don't know what to look for as I've played primarily offensive roles for the best part of 15 years.

MK Scouser

{Ed001's Note - to be honest it is difficult to give triggers without knowing the team you play for and what they are likely to see. If they are crap, then there is little point making a forward run if the ball is on the other side of the pitch and you are better off coming over on the cover as a defender.

Does the wideman in front of you cut inside a lot? Because if he does you could look for him looking to make a run inside and then take up the space outside him. You are very reliant on your team mates having the ability to spot the run and pick it out though.}

1.) 17 Sep 2018 21:21:17
I used to play as a left back myself MK (albeit I am right-footed - I truly was the 2013-14 Jon Flanagan of my youth league. ) .

I always found that at that sort of level, it’s best to arrive late to attacks, even if the winger in front of you cuts inside frequently as Ed001 says.

Your job first and foremost as a right back is to make sure you have their left winger marked - and if you’re bombing up the pitch too early, you’re going to be sprinting back (likely to no avail) an awful lot.

The main key is to build an understanding with the winger ahead of you. If you know each other’s game, you’ll learn to time your overlapping runs to suit how he plays.

As Ed001 says though, easier to answer this if we know how your team plays!

{Ed025's Note - i cant believe you would associate yourself with anything to do with jon flanagan reid ...choose someone who is not a scumbag next time mate..

2.) 17 Sep 2018 21:44:08
Fortunately that’s where the similarities end, Ed025! Was a tongue in cheek comment of course.

{Ed025's Note - of course mate, you are better than that reid..

3.) 17 Sep 2018 23:34:55
I loved to play as a left winger. Once my asthma getting worst, I started to play as a wingback or a leftback. Yeah it wasn't easy at all to read things. There were lots of running too, way way too much for my condition that time, and way way lots more than being an attacker.

4.) 17 Sep 2018 23:52:28
MK come and play in a decent defensive unit at the next Matt Hawker cup game, John and I will sort your positioning out buddy, you’ll have a sore left ear by the end. Failing that go stand next to Ken, not to close though he might mistake you for our new Belgian buddy and give you abuse 🤭.

5.) 18 Sep 2018 00:49:21
How your opposition set up is also critical to what you can and can't do in a game. As I got older and slower I played CB and would make sure my full backs were young and ready to run a lot :) I'd tell them early in the game to get forward and let's see what the opposing winger does. Will he follow you or will he take up the space you've left vacant? Like has been said, if you're a decent time who like to get forward, then the modern full back can really get involved more than back in the day. If you get beat 5-0 most games, then do your main job of listening to your CB and covering your man.

6.) 18 Sep 2018 09:59:08
K68, you're on mate! Clean sheets all around haha.

Cheers Ed001. The guy in front of me does cut in quite a lot as we play a narrow front 3 so perhaps I could only look for the overlap when he does tuck inside their full back. We're a good side to to be fair, but We're newly promoted to the league so I'll try holding back if the ball is on the other side of the pitch. Hopefully save me a few lung bursting sprints back into position. Cheers mate.

Any advice is welcomed so thanks to everyone. I had no idea how hard it is to learn a new position.

{Ed001's Note - the most basic thing is, get goalside before making any kind of challenge. It is easy to forget that, but it is something all defenders should look to do.}

Cheers Reid. We play a narrow 4-3-3. One midfielder sits back, 2 join the attack. High defensive line. A big target man, and two wide men who just drift into space.

I like your advice. I'll take more notice of what our right winger does and try and anticipate his movements next time.

I also like your idea Burkey. Push on and see if the winger will follow etc. Cheers guys.

8.) 18 Sep 2018 10:43:14
As a fellow FB I can't really offer any advice because I don't get forward much. But one advice I can offer is that you build thick skin early because as a FB you will be blamed for every single goal that comes from wide. You can stop 50 crosses a game, the CB's will blame you for the one that got through and they didn't challenge. Just the way of the world sadly.

9.) 18 Sep 2018 11:20:24
I can't offer any advice MK because I wouldn't know where to begin mate! but good luck, I'm sure you'll adapt to the new position, your hard work and determination I'm sure will eventually pay off and you'll be confident in the position you're playing in. It just takes time mate so stick with it :) I look forward to seeing your progression next year at the charity game!

10.) 18 Sep 2018 11:21:08
i have a love/ hate relationship with the fullback position. great position to get lots of ball. I'd lean towards playing more defensively and pickin momnts to overlap. otherwise, as ed1 said, if you are in an average team you'll be sprinting upfield only to tun around and have to sprint back again with no one covering you!

but if you in a better team then presumably you're training and I'd say the key is have great communication with the key player on your side of the pitch.

11.) 18 Sep 2018 11:34:49
Well done MK, wish I had the confidence to go and play again in a team. There are several analytical and coachy style videos on YouTube you could have a look at as well, dedicated to fullbacks/ wingbacks etc. You might find some useful pointers there. Good luck.

12.) 18 Sep 2018 15:56:18
Just relax mate, if u have played in a more attacking role a right back slot should be easier. U have it all in front of u. Tuck in about 10 yards to the right of your centre back and ease your way into the game. Once u become more secure in your own mind then pick and choose the appropriate times to bomb on, ensuring your right midfielder is on the same page!

13.) 18 Sep 2018 17:00:51
Let's face it - some players will be used as a role-model. Steven Gerrard is such a player and his behaviour off the field wasn't always what it should be. The same goes for the likes of Terry and Rooney to name but two.



20 Aug 2018 16:28:53
Get well soon Salah. I'll miss reading your posts in the meantime and look forward to your return! Hopefully still get to meet you at next year's charity game 🤞.

It's kinda cute Lucas Digne attempting to throw shade at Liverpool. He must realise that he would be our 5th choice left back after Robbo, Moreno, Milner and Gomez.

MK Scouser

1.) 04 Aug 2018 11:36:52
He would be second and only just to robbo.

2.) 04 Aug 2018 11:58:19
We'll see Walter! For me he offers nothing offensively or defensively. He's just athletic. The left footed Nathaniel Clyne!

3.) 04 Aug 2018 12:02:39
Let’s be honest, he’s better than Moreno, but he’d also jump at the chance to sign for us over them.

4.) 04 Aug 2018 12:14:41
Sixth to Lewis! 😉😉.

5.) 04 Aug 2018 12:47:17
I don't rate him either, he wouldn't get on our bench even though he'd absolutely love to ;) .

Glad to see you posting again MK.

6.) 04 Aug 2018 13:06:43
Big Emre, agreed! 😂

Been a bit busy Salah. New job. Been working 7 till 7 the last 2 weeks. Be worth it on pay day hopefully!

7.) 04 Aug 2018 13:56:36
We have more or less revolutionized the squad in recent seasons and wouldn't need him. Everton have signed a good player though, IMHO.

8.) 04 Aug 2018 14:59:55
Congrats on the new job mk. Hope all is well mate.

9.) 04 Aug 2018 15:12:18
Hope the new job doesn’t keep you away from this site MK. Congratulations.

10.) 04 Aug 2018 15:14:56
Mk good on you hope the new job is a major success for you. However you are not allowed to use the new job for not posting. You have a lunch break plenty of time to post away.

11.) 04 Aug 2018 15:21:39
Few more responsibilities and a lot more hours Stu. So I'll probably be less active MON-FRI to be honest. I'll still lurk on my breaks and weekends 😉.

12.) 04 Aug 2018 15:39:57
Thanks everyone. It's a big opportunity for me to better myself, and my families life! I'll still do the CL previews though and make time for posting 😉.

13.) 04 Aug 2018 16:17:53
Nice one MK, great news mate. Change is needed at times mate especially when it's for the better :) .

14.) 04 Aug 2018 16:29:17
Whether you rate him or not. Baines is a better player.

15.) 04 Aug 2018 17:56:44
Moreno is much better than digne!
Robbo is a different level.

16.) 04 Aug 2018 19:58:27
I only post on here when I'm trying to avoid doing my job or talking to my wife. It'll come to you too MK, in time. :)



29 Jul 2018 11:21:29
Happy birthday Tris. It's not too late for you to get scouted. El Hadary played in the world cup at 45. Jan Molby played top flight football at 18 stone. Keep believing.

21 Jul 2018 14:26:48
Chris Kirkland has been named goalkeeper coach for the Liverpool ladies. Congratulations to him on his first job in coaching and good on him for respecting the ladies game!

MK Scouser

1.) 21 Jul 2018 15:10:31
No offence but that's a little patronising. I wouldn't normally bring it up but if you want to praise him for respecting the ladies game then all your doing is highlighting the difference or suggesting that he deserves respect for stooping to deal with the womens side of things. It's innocuous really,

Like I said, I really do mean no offence because you're not the first and certainly won't be the last, but it is the same with any other equality subjects. If you highlight the fact there is something to be respected there, you only serve to keep a distinction between the two and that is the antithesis of equality in my eyes.

Congratulate him for the job but don't say well done for doing what he should do already. Breathe in (well done), breathe out (well done), respect women (well done) .

2.) 21 Jul 2018 15:24:02
Innocuous really (pressed send too early), but it is unnecessary. It's the done thing to mention it nowadays so everyone knows you believe in equality etc. It's like being passive aggressive (saying what you really mean without actually saying it), but in terms of showing how liberal you really are, without saying so, if that makes sense.

3.) 21 Jul 2018 15:31:26
AB, seems like an overreaction to a positive message from MK. Pedantic really.

4.) 21 Jul 2018 15:41:59
I think we all know what MK means and I’m sure we’d all like to pass on our congratulations to Kirk.

5.) 21 Jul 2018 16:00:06

I think you might be the only one who reads mks post and picks it up that way.

Bit of an overaction mate.

6.) 21 Jul 2018 15:57:48
Not necessary Bardzo we all knew what he meant.

7.) 21 Jul 2018 16:14:08
I certainly echo the first bit.

8.) 21 Jul 2018 16:23:14
Not patronising at all if you read it with an open mind. First job for Kirkland, so it's news. And he's doing something different from what is being done (for example, men coaching women, or women coaching men, or a teenagers' coach coaching the first team and vice versa), so it's news again. If you don't talk about changes then how do people know about them? Clear overreaction.

9.) 21 Jul 2018 16:24:19
Unbelievable ❄❄❄.

10.) 21 Jul 2018 16:27:58
Then why mention the fact that Kirkland needs congratulating for respecting the Women's game? Surely that is a given? I know MK hasn't yet and may not reply so this is not at him, just the attitude that you need to be seen to make the comment about it. If you don't get it then fine.

11.) 21 Jul 2018 16:32:00
honestly, what's the world coming to? its fairly obvious the sentiment in which MK's comment was meant and judging by what I've read from him he's fairly inoffensive. who wants to strike up an argument on here about inequality over a post which wasnt trying to do that. fair enough its a subject in football which may need to be tackled but if you care that much start your own thread.

12.) 21 Jul 2018 16:46:37
I get it, Swishcleaner. It wasn't intended to start an argument, I was the first to comment and it was directly to MK, but everyone's got an opinion so it's other people's prerogative to reply. The sentiment is fine, execution was off. If it's ok to tell someone off for saying something deliberately offensive, then surely it's ok for that person to be made aware that what they have said can also be construed as being offensive, if not intended (The old 'They're from a different generation' trick doesn't work with someone in their 20's) .

Also, I could have started a separate thread, but then it wouldn't work with the comment I was originally commenting on. It's a bit like you getting offended by my comment on MK's behalf, telling me so and not starting your own thread about it.

13.) 21 Jul 2018 16:52:27
Great news, good luck to the man.

14.) 21 Jul 2018 16:54:49
I'd go with the "may not reply" assumption, mate. Nothing personal but my weekends are my down time and I just don't have the energy for this. Grab a beer from the fridge and put on a frock. That's what I'm going to do.

15.) 21 Jul 2018 16:55:04
Calm down bardzo for christ sake.

16.) 21 Jul 2018 17:00:28
In fairness the women's game has come on leaps and bounds in the last 10/ 15 years. I remember watching it 20 years ago. Doncaster bell's dcm header Ed a ball away from her area and was unconscious for 10minutes.

They can play now, good luck to Kirkland.

17.) 21 Jul 2018 17:15:47
Whichever editor changed that to "frock", you are a genius.

Then put a frock on, and join mk for a beer 😆.

22.) 21 Jul 2018 18:13:14
AB, I get exactly what you're saying and we should look forward to a time when a man working in the Women's game isn't remarkable but MK was being supportive and that shouldn't be knocked. I think you jumped the gun on this one.

{Ed002's Note - All Women's Premier/Super League head coaches are men excpet Chelsea, Reading and Brighton.}

23.) 21 Jul 2018 18:20:19

29.) 21 Jul 2018 20:48:11
When there is genuinely little distinction between the two then perhaps you might consider mk’s statement as such. However, we aren’t there yet and sadly won’t be for a few years. I don’t see any problem in Mk’s words at all. It’s like criticizing “kick it out” for pointing out that there are racism issues and if they didn’t mention it so much there wouldn’t be an issue. Pretending there isn’t an issue is creating an issue of ignorance and criticising someone for such is disrespectful for those who fight for said campaigns. Whether we like it or not, some people do need to be told that these good movements are happening. So well done Kirkland. Here’s to this not being an issue in a few years time.

30.) 21 Jul 2018 21:13:06
Good post, aoe. I just think sometimes, considering the amount of men working in women's football and the sharp rise in popularity and recognition of it as a professional sport, those comments are unnecessary nowadays. If I have offended anyone by suggesting as much then I am sorry. Apparently we still need reminding from time to time.

Flash, I have issues that you doubtless couldn't begin to comprehend.

31.) 21 Jul 2018 23:10:01
Falsh whatever his 'issues' are, they're none of your concern. I do know of Bardzos 'issues' to a certain extent and it's something I'd wish on nobody. You probably didn't mean anything by it Flash so I'm not having a go or anything but remember you never know what somebody might be going through at the other end.

32.) 21 Jul 2018 23:24:27
Cheers Salah. He's just got a bee in his bonnet about a thread the other day. No harm done.

33.) 21 Jul 2018 23:59:12
Lovely fella Chris and he’s been through some tough times, hope he has a great career as a coach 👍.

It varies depending on which currency you use because of the fluctuation in exchange rate.

Buffon held the euro record. Ederson held the sterling record. Alisson breaks both records.

He'd be a huge upgrade on Matip in my honest opinion. Not much better than Klavan maybe, but he's a couple of levels above Matip.

I doubt it is true though. He's mates with Lovren and played a good World Cup. In Journalism school 2+2=5.

Cotsi, I know you are just playing devils advocate, but if the article was written by someone who just hates kids earning so much, why did he not take the opportunity to also use Phil Foden as a prime example to back up his opinion?

Maybe it was an innocent oversight but I am not so sure personally. There are a lot of kids earning too much in football, yet the article focused solely on one player which smacks of an agenda to me.
