Have we any interest in Salif Sane from Hannover. Been watching a bit more Bundesliga this year and he seems excellent. Currently has the third highest rating in the Bundesliga.

He’s a big strong Senegalese CB, wins lots of aerial battles and has 6 MOTM this season. Older than some we have been linked to but looks excellent.


{Ed001's Note - not heard of any interest from us in him.}

So after two very poor performances will Klopp swing the axe and shake things up?
Karius has to come back, Gomez must replace TAA and either Klavan or Lovren for the inept Matip.
I read last night ome great posts on playing Hendo and Ox as the two, Mane and Salah on the wings which I think is a great shout. Can and Wini have had enough chances and if nothing else dropping them in a World Cup year might put a well deserved rocket up their backsides.
Another great shout on one of the pages was Ings up top who is a terrier and deserves a chance and a Firminho playing in a free role.
It’s Huddersfield next so we’re not expecting all out attack against us. Klopp needs to start shaking things up and showing players that abject performances will not be tolerated. A few games in the bench for Can and Wini might just change their attitudes, hopefully for the better.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 10:16:41
Dropping gini won't perk him up for the world cup as he's watching from his couch anyway. TAA I think would be worth playing tonight as he's better going forward than gomez. Is tonight a chance to play gomez CB with VVD? Klopps stated tactics were to blame against Swansea so expect a formation change, I doubt a 442 or 4411 but possibly 3 at the back or 4132. On the transfer front, no more in this window, shame we didn't challenge for PEA. I'm the summer, a gk, cdm and a striker to replace studge and probably ings departures.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 10:16:58
The problem is this. Bringing Henderson back in is probably sensible, now that he is over his latest injury, but then who if you drop both Can and Wijnaldum, it means almost certainly that James Milner will play in centre midfield and he is a liability at the best of times in that position.

3.) 30 Jan 2018 10:19:13
I'd go Klavan, solid, unspectacular and until he was dropped, had cut out making silly mistakes. Never thought I would say that but there you go.

4.) 30 Jan 2018 10:33:57
Mr Dennis. reread the original post. he clearly states both hendo and the Ox in midfield to replace Gini and can and a switch to 442 risk formation. Milner wouldn't need to start

5.) 30 Jan 2018 11:08:47
Klopp isn't going to go 442, he isn't Roy Hodgson.

{Ed001's Note - he has gone 4-4-2 quite a few times.}

6.) 30 Jan 2018 11:13:27
Shake things up?!

With what?!

Have you seen our bench?

7.) 30 Jan 2018 11:52:26
Mr Dennis, as ED001 has alluded to Klopp has already tried this formation a few times this season, and with Keita arriving in the summer you should expect it to happen more often! 442 isn't a bad way of setting up a modern team, ask athletico Madrid and Leicester city. rather than assuming only a dinasuar like Roy Hodson would use it 😉.

8.) 30 Jan 2018 13:01:39
Formations don't win matches . Players do.
Good players
Clever players
Hungry players
Find a way to win
Do we have them?
Not sure.

9.) 30 Jan 2018 13:03:46
The difference is this, the title winning Leicester side had and current Atletico side have the players to be able sit back and soak up pressure when needed as both played on the counter and soaked up pressure, we lack any players that have that ability. Not one of our midfielders are at the level of Kante (who was so good that the team felt like it was having two players instead of one and he even made Drinkwater look like a footballer) or Niguez and Koke. Not one of our midfielders are as good as those players or ever will be, name me one midfielder that we have that even comes close? It is like entering an Austin Maestro into a grand prix and hoping to win.

{Ed001's Note - would it be the MG version of the Maestro though?}

10.) 30 Jan 2018 14:56:22
Shake things up in Kevin Murphy's box of rice (musical instrument) obviously mate :)

11.) 30 Jan 2018 15:25:37
For me the 4-3-3 is the best formation for us.

The issue for me is the lack of creativity and protection offered from our midfield 3. Hendo on his day can offer both of these things but since his string of injuries has failed to show his true ability.

Coutinho obviously offered the creativity to feed clever balls to the front 3 in tight spaces. This has been our main issue in the last 2 games against teams who are happy to sit and defend. We have had a huge percentage of the possession but it has all been slow and sideways.

In terms of protection I can't remember the last time that we had a quality DM who would sit there and help out the defence. Can and Wijnaldum have both had a go without much success. I don't know the number of goals that have resulted from Can giving the ball away in bad positions but from memory there have been several.

Keita will be a huge bonus when he joins but for me we will still need a 3rd quality central midfielder to play alongside Hendo (if he can prove himself fit and refind his form) and Keita.

If we can get in a top quality CM and a top quality GK for next season I would be a happy man.

12.) 30 Jan 2018 15:33:17
Hahaha Ed001 my mate had an mg maestro turbo not so long ago, was a bit of a state though.

{Ed001's Note - had it won any grands prix?}

13.) 30 Jan 2018 16:52:42
I think you’re spelling prix wrong Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - ah could be mate.}

14.) 30 Jan 2018 18:26:04
I think against the teams who sit deep and we struggle to break down I would like to see him swap Salah and Mane on the wings (I know they're preferred is to cut in) but having them on the wing and they're favoured foot on the outside will stop having them need to cut in where its always jam packed, I think this would solve a load of problems breaking these teams down - what's everyones thoughts.

15.) 30 Jan 2018 20:43:48
Cialb - I like how you are trying to think outside the box. Personally I think that would leave Firmino isolated in the middle and would also clog up the space our fullbacks would be running into. I suppose the fullbacks could move centrally in attack much like Lahm did at Bayern but Im not sure we have the players for that. TAA maybe but our left side I doubt.

16.) 31 Jan 2018 07:46:44
No Ed001 it didn’t win any Grand Prix, although it may have stood a chance after After god had spent years corroding the body away in an attempt to make it lighter and more competitive on the track.

{Ed001's Note - they were obviously designed for racing lightness being so easily corroded. I think the design team must have used rust to get round homologation issues and road legality.}



12 Nov 2017 10:49:19
Papers now claiming Can heading to City in the summer.


1.) 12 Nov 2017 11:51:56
'papers' says it all mate.

2.) 12 Nov 2017 12:02:27
And Sky Sports as well.

3.) 12 Nov 2017 13:39:11
Please Pep.
take him now.


4.) 12 Nov 2017 16:39:24
Then he should be dropped to the reserves for the rest of the season as his heart isn’t in it.

5.) 12 Nov 2017 17:27:19
Good shout Mr Dennis, can’t wait for Naby to join next season after a year in Liepzig’s reserves.

6.) 12 Nov 2017 20:05:21
I thought players can't agree anything pre contract wise from the same league or country.

7.) 12 Nov 2017 21:07:33
let him go nobody bigger than the club.

8.) 12 Nov 2017 21:40:22
As far as I’m concerned Can has made a decision that he doesn’t see his future at Liverpool. He sees it at Man City, which is fine. But since he has been a liability at times this season, his place would be better taken by Grujic who will be here next season. Can should be a bench warmer at best.

9.) 12 Nov 2017 22:11:29
I can't see him going to city, if he's worried about a long term starting spot then they would be a disaster for him. I can't see anything other than a free transfer to Juve in the summer.

10.) 13 Nov 2017 00:54:04
Amazing how people just believe whatever the papers say and launch into a player without any confirmation, even though these reports constantly get shown as rubbish.

11.) 13 Nov 2017 12:17:08
Hahaha he won't start at Man City. Gundogan doesn't start and only makes the old cameo how the hell will Can see the field behind him, Fernandinho, Yaya even!

{Ed002's Note - Gundogan ruptured his Cruciate Ligament keeping him pout for 9 months.}

12.) 13 Nov 2017 13:40:02
Damn fair enough Ed! I'd just rather see Can move abroad.

{Ed002's Note - Once he has left Liverpool it should be unimportant to you.}

13.) 13 Nov 2017 14:06:00
Tell that to Chelsea fans re Nemanja Matić.

14.) 13 Nov 2017 14:06:46
Of course.

15.) 13 Nov 2017 22:57:08
If Can's "heart isn't in it" he certainly has a funny way of showing that when he puts the shirt on. maybe he should take a lesson from Coutinho about how to perform when your heart isn't in it.

16.) 14 Nov 2017 12:35:16
Faithinworks that is why I don’t get the abuse. He is still putting in a shift, might not always be a good one but by all accounts the situation is one of he wants to be playing and the recruitment policy suggests to him that he won’t be a regular next season. Nowhere near the situation of Coutinho s amazing success in ruining his standing with the fans.



25 Oct 2017 20:52:07
Ed001, do think Klopp will actually make big changes in defense and in goal at weekend as is being discussed in the papers? Or have you heard any whispers that he’s willing to try other options?


{Ed001's Note - I expect him to, he was furious at the weekend. The only worry is that he might calm down and pull back from making those big changes once he has had time to think about it. Certainly his initial plan was to change things, however I wouldn't hold my breath as people often change their mind. I remember one club owner said straight after a match that he was going to sack the manager in the morning. He calmed down over night and changed his mind, leaving me looking an arse as I said the manager would be gone the next day.}

1.) 25 Oct 2017 22:04:33
Yes sometimes a cooling down period is not a good idea.

2.) 26 Oct 2017 06:21:52
I'm a big fan of Klopp and his personality is infectious but I agree that he is not beyond crtitcism and I think this weekends selection could be the making or breaking of him. If he makes the decisions everyone knows are correct and we don't get the result then it's going to go down a lot better with fans than if he allows the continued errors of his ways cloud his judgement with formation, team selection and the way we play.

3.) 26 Oct 2017 15:06:48
Surely the result is more important than the team selection, no one will care about the team selected if we win 5-0, regardless of who plays. However if he picks the same team and we don’t get a result then questions will be asked.

4.) 26 Oct 2017 16:16:47
It really is time for Klopp to decide who remains in employment by Liverpool - himself or Mignolet and Lovren. If he keeps picking them then he will get the sack and any new manager will probably get rid of them anyway. Loyalty does not exist in football.

5.) 27 Oct 2017 23:07:58
Klopp came out today and said Mignolet starts tomorrow. I can't get my head around it at all.



23 Oct 2017 04:25:06
So does anyone actually know why Klopp persists with Migs? Are Ward and Karius so bad in training or what is the reason?

This is a 100% genuine question, Ed01 have you heard anything mate?


{Ed001's Note - I honestly do not know the answer to this, it surprises me as everything that I have heard says that he wants to sell him. Ward and Karius were meant to be fighting it out for the no 1 spot. I know both of them are unhappy and have spoken to Klopp about that, but there is nothing else that is stopping them getting the jersey. Both have impressed in training from what I have been told. This is one thing I just do not understand. It is confusing to say the least. Klopp surely can't think the fans will just jump on either's back after 2 games like they did last season and call for Mignolet's return now can he? Mind the knee jerk reactionary tools who did that last season have such short memories, they will no doubt be dragging out nonsense like 'Migs is a good shotstopper' the minute either keeper doesn't make an impossible save!}

1.) 23 Oct 2017 08:47:52
He has too give ward a proper chance mignolet has proved he is a flapper and not up too it, we already have let our best defender leave in sakho, for all we know ward could b a quality keeper for us we don't want him leaving as well.

2.) 23 Oct 2017 10:20:54
The problem is Mignolet is so bad in every aspect of goalkeeping so i don't see what he can possibly see in him.
Klopp persisted with a very average GK in Dortmund for many years as well in Weindefeller who i though was not a good Goalkeeper, its worrying and if Karius or Ward doesn't start vs Huddersfield then i think Klopp has lost the plot. Mignolet should have been dropped for ever after the horrible game he had vs Leicester despite us winning after he saved a penalty he himself gave away with ridiculous goalkeeping. Starting Mignolet or Lovren anytime soon will just tell the rest of the squad it doesn't matter what they do because the favorites will always be picked.

3.) 23 Oct 2017 10:23:46
Your not telling me Ward wouldn't be up for it against Huddersfield, perfect game for him to start, he should be given the chance now until the end of the season then it can be decided who is to go, Gomez looked like the senior cb yesterday too and Matip looked lost as usual, he should stay there too, it was good to finally see Klopp coming out and saying things against his defenders, lacking a leader and organisation, January will be a big month.

4.) 24 Oct 2017 13:26:34
Like I said before (just my opinion), I think the problem stems from within the club. How can two totally different managers (BR) make the exact same mistakes? Does that not strike anyone as odd?

5.) 25 Oct 2017 07:13:50
Migs has had his chance.
Give karius a run of games not 1 here and there. If after 6 games or so there is no improvement throw ward in there for a spell. Simple.

I wouldn't mind being beat by 3 normal goals but to concede two goals like we did by the keepers mistake an to loose mo like that is so hard to take.
We move on but it's going to take time.

Same, but still proud.



25 May 2018 12:19:49
Ed, ever hear of any managers going outside their coaching group e. g. to other managers for opinion on opponents prior to huge matches like this?


{Ed001's Note - yes mate it happens a lot for big games.}

1.) 25 May 2018 13:22:01
I think one of the Ed’s gave a good example a few years back when Marcelo Biesla advised Rodgers to try play a Diamond formation the season we nearly won the title.

2.) 25 May 2018 15:10:29
Interesting actually, I've never heard of that before!



20 May 2018 21:42:16
As we all can’t go to the match here’s a question,

If you could watch the match in a bar with posters from this site who would you have at your table?


{Ed025's Note - tough one that Mc, i would leave out 2 of my favourite posers though in brover and MKS as they would do nothing but yap all through the game :) so im taking harry , barry and walter mate..

1.) 20 May 2018 22:07:53
MK, Walter, Harry, Putney, Ron, ArAy (ra), Barry and mikey.

2.) 20 May 2018 22:12:55
Oh and Johncrow and aoe.

3.) 20 May 2018 22:22:47
Salah and Ron.

4.) 20 May 2018 22:27:15
Salah - I'd ask Harry and Walter to come in body armour and helmets in that group, if I were you. 😉🤣.

5.) 20 May 2018 22:30:58
Why would anyone want to take Salah? I'd rather have him out there on the pitch tearing Ramos a new one :p.

6.) 20 May 2018 22:34:51
Reckon Barry would be a great lad! Shout out to Ron, Harry and Mk as well. Salah I'm sure your good craic but I'd rather see you playing o Saturday than in the bar lol.

7.) 20 May 2018 22:37:41
MK, Ron, Salah and Harry.

You've pretty much got all bases covered there. maybe add NegativeRedWalter for some reason.

9.) 20 May 2018 22:44:45
Ed001, Ed002, Ed025, harry, Ron, Salah.
MK misses the cut due to the fact he would talk to much 😉.

10.) 20 May 2018 22:51:01
Being an old guy I'd take Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich. I remember that it 2005 I was on holiday in Devon and was joined by Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney, Peter Davy, Dan'l Whiddon, Harry Hawke and Tom Cobley. I could understand the Turkish commentator better than them!

11.) 20 May 2018 23:16:52

MK, Salah, Ron, Harry (out of curiosity) and Waro (i don't agree with him often, but he's clearly a passionate fan)

14.) 21 May 2018 01:18:36
Well now the 1st one is easy Ed025 all day long and then Carra, Ed001, Salah, Ron, BmenaRed & ST oh and has to be Macca, and Putney

15.) 21 May 2018 01:21:41
23carra for a live loan report.

16.) 21 May 2018 01:50:43
I’d have Ron and Walter sitting next to each other. not sure if opposites would attract or they’d blow each other’s minds.

Then Ed25 because he seems a great bloke and on the verge of converting to a Liverpool fan, Ed02 for his knowledge and so I could try convince him its not that bad and to start his sharkopods again, likewise Ed01 of course, MK for his enthusiasm and insights, Harry for the controversial views and Barry and Putney for their love of the game. Salah on the pitch, sorry mate.

17.) 21 May 2018 02:01:33
Walter is a must☺️. Ed025 for pure fun. MK for in-depth analysis during the match and BRover for “Klopp couldn’t be wrong” moments 😂😂😂.

I'd love to meet any of you personally.

19.) 21 May 2018 02:45:46
Well if we're adding eds to the list, I'd add the lot of them because they all bring something special in their own ways, especially Ed1 and Ed25, Ed1 for his knowledge of not just football but life/ sports in general, he's a bit of a bloody genius that fella and Ed25 because he's a secret Liverpool fan ;) can just imagine him turning up in his Liverpool kit with his scarf, the full kit and caboodle.

😊 Thanks for the mentions.

Obviously it’d be a pleasure to watch the match with everyone on the site.
Would love to share some electric brownies with Ed002, Zoom, Bozo Texino, WDS, Pepe, The Nose, Kirikou, Dinsdale McSkrtel, Pipco, Tinkerbell and Rico. 😎.



28 Apr 2018 11:06:25
When everyone’s finished bitching and whining try and find a few minutes to to think, pray or do whatever for Sean Cox who is still critical and will hopefully be safely brought out of his coma on Monday after surgery yesterday. Let’s hope he can have his life back with his wife and children, let’s hope he can once again attend Anfield to watch and support his beloved Liverpool, perspective people, get some perspective please.


1.) 28 Apr 2018 11:13:05

Time for EUFA and the Italian clubs to grow a pair and stop being scared if upsetting the Ultras. I won’t hold my breath though.

Great post, Mcgoveb.

6.) 28 Apr 2018 17:39:01
Great post mate, I hope all will be ok on Monday and he can see us knock Roma out on Wednesday! That poor man has no idea we did them 5-2, fingers crossed for him, nobody deserves what happened to him, it's unreal how crazy some people can get.



25 Apr 2018 12:33:00
Thoughts go out to the Irish fan critically injured before the game last night by two Roma fans. Police picked up the two svum inside Anfield and they've been arrested with charges of attempted murder being sought.
That poor man and his family, no place in sport or life for that thuggery. I hope they get what's due.

A couple of thoughts
We have to hope that the ref is strong enough to ignore their play acting and diving or we will be on yellow cards quite early, Milner, TAA, Lovren and Robertson as first culprits. Luckily with the exception of one Salah incident we don't act like this.
If we attack and get at them they will cut our boys down and we have to hope the ref again is strong enough to deal properly with this.
Sitting back I don't believe is a strength of ours and I hope we play to our strengths the way we have in most games, go at them hard and fast and don't let up or sit back. It's 90 minutes of football for one of the biggest prizes in the game so you bring it all and leave everything on that pitch. Chance of a lifetime for some players so no excuses, give them hell.
