Hi edds

Could Barcelonas Riqui Puig be a part of a transfer for either wijnaldum or mane?

Thanks for the hard work.


{Ed002's Note - No he won't be, sorry.}

wondered what people thought of the 15mill for gini rumour, as we see newcastle paying 20 odd mill for wilson (as a example) , same age etc IMO no where near the same class?

2.) 06 Sep 2020 15:12:15
If Barcelona are so desperate to get Gini, let's do a cash plus player, someone who is good at theiacademuca.

3.) 06 Sep 2020 19:48:18
Guys, we have no bargaining chips available for Gini, either we accept what someone will pay, or we keep him and lose him for free at the end of the season. It's happened plenty of times before, it's apparently happening with Thiago at the European champions, we have to accept it.

4.) 07 Sep 2020 09:56:12
Villa was also in for Wilson so I guess the demand bumped up the price, of course someone else could come in for Gini but I doubt they will have a chance . it's Barcelona, he would be also working with the Dutch National Coach at the same time and I guess he gets a pay rise. Love seeing Gini step out for the Reds and will miss him, all the best Gini and THANK YOU for those 2 goals against Barca!

What happened to the team page? I enjoyed reading about Harrys flavour of the month player, I really did.

Anyway if you could pick 3 players to play for LFC next season, who would it be? (that would be players within our reach)

Winger: Daniel Caliguiri
RB: Ricardo Pereira
Coutinho replacement: Nabil Fekir.


1.) 16 May 2018 16:29:18
Ceballos (based on what ed has said about him and our interest)
Benjamin Heinrichs (Bayer Leverkusen RB)

2.) 16 May 2018 16:48:54
I think we need a LB more urgently than a RB. TAA's only proven position at the moment is RB, and we have Gomez and Clyne as decent back up. At LB we don't have any decent back up to Robbo. TAA may become an excellent midfielder but he will have Keita, Ox, Hendo and others to complete with.

We need someone to challenge Lovren for the first team. Surely Gomez cannot be relied upon until he's been tested at CB for numerous games.

We need a Can replacement as back up for Hendo.

And someone to challenge Ox for the third midfield position but also with versatility to be able to play up front.

I think all four of above are more critical than RB and GK.

3.) 16 May 2018 17:01:01
I don’t want to buy backups.

I’d rather buy players to improve the current 1st 11, and use the players they replace as ‘backups’.

And/ or use our academy players to backup (or backup the backups! ) otherwise how will we know if they are ready to step up - like TAA (who was himself a backup last season.

4.) 16 May 2018 17:06:30
Still trying to work out why we need a coutinho replacement, aren't we a better team without him? or is that term a new on pitch position like right back or goalkeeper?

5.) 16 May 2018 17:16:44
Cb and couts replacement for me. karius can get another season unless replaced by top quality like an oblak.

I would try and tempt dembele who is not signing a new contract at spurs too. If not him i would go for seri who would be an excellent partner for keita.

Cb i would go for someone tough like koubilay and couts replacement ideally fekir or malcolm.

But likely we will get none of the above.

6.) 16 May 2018 17:41:06
Johnny, ita not about replacing couts like for like. Its about replacing the versaility he bought to the side. We need someone who can cpme into the attack if we need to rest one of them and still be as effective. And someone who can play behind in midfield and create against the more defensive teams. So yes its not about him just about the roles he filled.

7.) 16 May 2018 17:41:39
Apparently every team needs a Coutinho replacement, Jonny.

I think it’s in the Premier League Charter, or something like that!

8.) 16 May 2018 18:13:50
I understand the questioning of buying backup players.
If we were to buy a winger, surely they would know their chances would be limited. Would a Pulisic or a Dembele (barca) want to join us to sit on the bench? Caliguiri is at the end of his career, he fits with our playing style, and he would be joining a title challenging team. I still believe Wilson would benefit from another prml loan.

Our current midfield, Henderson, Milner, Lallana, Wijnaldum, Chamberlain and Can are all players that possess similar traits (bar Chamberlain) . The coutinho replacement were to add something else, more creativity/ directness. At the moment our midfield looks lost when playing a stubborn defence, and perhaps a Fekir could help us in this department.

9.) 16 May 2018 18:24:26
That's my point, RedFuzz. I don't want us to buy ANY player who is happy to sit on the bench.

Pulisic isn't coming to sit on bench at any team, he will join someone (hopefully us) to be in the First 11. If that means he displaces someone else in the First 11 (even if we regard that player as 'untouchable') then great! We've just improved our First 11, even in an area (potentially) where we didn't think we could.

Those players who only join (or stay? ) if they are guaranteed a certain number of games are players, no matter how good they are, who I (and I believe Klopp) don't want in the squad. Give me someone like Ox anyday as he is prepared to fight for a place and has the confidence and ability to get it!

Interesting listening to some debate on, I think, the Monday Night Club on 5-live earlier this week (Monday, I think it was, lol) saying that one of Pep's greatest achievements is keeping so many players happy at Citeh. Even the subs and those outside the 18 were happy to be part of the team and the journey. That's what I think, and hope, Klopp is building here. Combine great team spirit with energy, great ability and add a pinch of 'Klopp' and we can look forward to many successes to come :)

Feel sorry for Ingsy, hope for a speedy recovery.

Hey Ed001

Will there be time for a pre-match review for todays match?



{Ed001's Note - I will try and get it done now and post it on the teams page when I do.}

1.) 29 Oct 2016 20:29:02
Good luck for the future and my condolences stay strong.



21 Sep 2016 16:22:09
At the moment we look really impresive, and I think it´s down to a couple of things

1. Tactics and player improvement. I remember Klopp complaining about not having enough time last season, to implement his tactics or getting the best out of the individual. At the moment Hendo and Lallana has improved quite a lot, both have been given new roles, and both have adapted and shown some of their best displays. Lovren and Milner has also stepped up! A thing I´ve also noticed, is that fluidity of the game has changed a lot, it seems like there´s more movement, players have a better understanding of each other, knowing where they will be in each phase of the game.

2. New signings. It´s early days, but at the moment it seems like Klopp has bought the players that were needed. Players like Matip and Mane has been superb for us. Matip seems like one of the best Cb we have had for years, so calm, and able to drive forward, but also know when to defend. Mane has just been a gamechanger. I still see some criticizing Wijnaldum, calling him a passenger. The fact is that he is also getting used to a new position, and from what I´ve seen, he is progressing.

3. Squad. At the moment I believe we have one of the best squads for years, and one of the best in the EPL. Remember when we had Suarez, and he got banned? I remember these pages went into meltdown, because we were so reliant on him. Everyone just played better when he was in the team. At the moment, anyone of our players could get injured, and it wouldn´t be a big deal (RB, LB might be an issue) . 7 players have shared 11 goals this season (4 players have scored 2, and 3 have scored 1), showing that we aren´t reliant on a single player to score for us.

At the moment there´s certainly a lot more positives than negatives, but the question is, can we keep this up?


1.) 21 Sep 2016 17:52:10
Broadly agree but I think we're playing well thanks to

1) good defensive base with Matip, Lovren and hopefully Karius soon
2) Midfield with blend of plenty of energy and creativity, and Hendo performing well in his new role as a deeper midfielder. have to admit Klopp has me on this one as I would have gone for Can, Hendo and Coutinho but current setup working well
2) biggest change is a forward line that really clicks. Firmino and Mane in particular transform the side

But this team is so much more than the sum of its parts. the key is each of these working together and a real style of play that actually fits. No Benteke without wingers to provide service, or attacking midfield with no pace, or defensive midfield with no positional sense or physical presence/ height etc. etc.

2.) 21 Sep 2016 19:30:08
You can distill the improvement in the side even more. The manager: everything great about what is going on at LFC is down to Jurgen.

He has got the coaching staff sorted the first team said largdly sorted though still a work in progress and the owners and fans on board,

It's bloody brilliant really.

3.) 22 Sep 2016 01:17:32
I have noticed the co-ordination of runs beyond the ball has got a lot better.

Players go into the box one by one rather than all at once or not at all. Makes for lots of chance-making opportunities and even stubborn defences are struggling with it.

Hope i don't eat my words after Hull.

4.) 22 Sep 2016 11:41:53
I think Wijnaldum isn't getting enough credit. New position, new team. Able to work his way out of tight situations and seems to always pick the right pass, and I think it's a matter of time before he starts getting on the scoresheet. definitely an upgrade on Allen or Lucas for me.



15 Jan 2016 12:42:56
The Sturridge debate:
Is sturridge the best striker in the league when fit? probably. Should we get rid off him? I think so.

his body is clearly not up for the job and it shows as he has missed more games than he has played. You might argue that he is a gamechanger in the few games that he plays, but he is also taking up a slot in the squad, which means we won´t buy another striker. So would you rather have a sturridge playing the few odd games a year or get another striker who possibly could contribute for an entire season? I´ve got no hate towards Sturridge, but I also think it would be in his interest to get away from football. I know how frustrating it is to be injured and not being able to play footy.

I also think a lot of people are being to harsh on Migs. Yes he makes mistakes, but you have to put this into perspective. Remember Lovren in the BR era, he looked like a league 2 player. Fast forward and he is one of our best defenders (player of the month in december) . What happened? Klopp. When was the last time we had a decent keeper? Reina, and his decline started when Achterberg was assigned. Some of the peeps on this site also says that his warm ups are a joke. I´m not saying that Migs will be a top keeper if we signed a decent GK coach, but it certainly wouldn´t do any harm.


{Ed023's Note - I'd give him until the Summer of 2017 to prove himself - he is still young. I know wages are the problem and I would understand if the club sell this summer but just my opinion.}

1.) 15 Jan 2016 13:22:45
I'm beginning to think maybe half of Sturridge's problem is mental. I think he thinks he will get injured and therefore notices every little tweak or bit of pain. Klopp might have been right about him having to realise the difference between being injured and merely playing when in a bit of discomfort.
I used to play rugby union and I honestly don't think I ever played a game where I could say I was fully fit. I certainly wouldn't have said I was injured but I was aching or hurting somewhere, you just get on with it.
I'd sell him how can he be earning the wage he is and yet in one and half seasons he's played about 12 games. If we keep him I'd say it's a pay as you play deal.

2.) 15 Jan 2016 13:35:44
Mignolet was bog standard at Sunderland as well. Our transfer comittee signed him based on stats (he made more saves than any other keeper in the league in his last season) but they failed to relaise his stats only looked good because Sunderland had a shocking defence so he was forced into being more active than most keepers.

His concentration levels are poor though so at a team where he is brought into to action less frequently he is struggling to react when he's called upon. Sunderland were also so poor that teams could just carve straight through them rather than needed to get the ball out wide and put balls into the box. So now teams are doing that against him we're seeing just how poor he is at dealing with crosses. He has always been dodgy from set pieces though, he's never been any good at distribution, I still don't remember him ever making a save with his feet and he is so quiet its a joke. He makes no effort to organise his defence and doesn't call for the ball when he does come to claim it which is why he is forever getting blocked off by his own players and why he nearly punched Toures head off on Wednesday.

Do not try and defend the indefensible. He is the worst first choice keeper in the clubs history and wouldn't play for any other team in the league.

On Sturridge, I agree partially. We should move him on and invest in a more reliable striker of equal or better quality, however he shouldn't give up on his career in football. If I were him I'd go to Italy or Spain where the fixtures are more spaced out and the tempo is much slower. He is still a world class player when fit but he is never going to be fit in English football because it is too extreme on the bodies of the players and particularly under Klopp, he will not be able to play more than once every 7-10 days. He is wasting his career here. He is almost certain to miss the European Championships. Vardy, Kane, Rooney, Carroll, Defoe, Bolasie, Sterling, Walcott etc are all well ahead of him in the pecking order purely because they're fit and scoring goals.

He either needs his training regime adapted to change him as a player (ie. bulk him up and sacrifice his explosive pace for more durability and strength) or he needs to go to another league where he can play less frequently in less physically demanding matches. If he opts to change his game (like Torres and Owen did) in order to play more regualarly he risks losing his quality as a player though, so for his sake he should go abroad.

3.) 15 Jan 2016 13:40:58
I'd be tempted to wait til he is fit, in the sense that he has no injuries. Then send him home for 2 weeks, with light yoga style exercises to do. Improve his flexibility and his core strength, improve the strength of all the smaller muscles in his leg (I had a problem with my knees when younger and this helped me) . Maybe look to get him back for the final Months of the season if we have some finals or big games to look forward too. Don't push him now, I doub he will prove his fitness enough to go to the euros, then next season ease him in, and if like ed said, he's not fit by the summer of 2017, sell him.

4.) 15 Jan 2016 13:46:40
I think it will be very difficult to buy a player of equal or better standard than Sturridge, for the transfer fee that Liverpool might get for him.

5.) 15 Jan 2016 13:58:03
Would not mind Aubameyang if he want to come? He should be more than capable replacement for sturridge.

6.) 15 Jan 2016 14:11:51
Although I agree there has to be time when we decide to go another way I think we're still a long way of that. If he's injured no one will buy him so we're paying his wages regardless. I'd say the decision point is this summer, if there's a suggestion that he won't contribute next year then we have to look for a new player to build around.

7.) 15 Jan 2016 14:14:50
I think to expect anything substantial from Sturridge at any point of this season is asking for trouble, even though he is taking up a valuable roster space on the team. I think this season will end up being a write-off for him. I'm reminded of Van Persie who spent the good part of 2-3 years, with Arsenal, continuously going back and forth between the field and the injured list. And then when he left, he was able to stay relatively healthy for the better part of the next few years. I think Sturridge's case will probably turn out to be something similar. So the question that arises is, even though his purchase price was comparatively lower, do you continue paying his wages for the next 6-12 months, and then when he has fully recovered, you are closer to the end of his contract and he decides to move on to greener pastures? I'd much rather put more emphasis on undoing some of BR's transfer mistakes (ie. Benteke) . In an ideal world, Benteke would be sold off in the summer, Lacazette would be brought in, Ings and Origi would continue their progress and anything positive from Sturridge would just be a bonus, to spur the team forward and upwards.

8.) 15 Jan 2016 14:21:12
Completely agree Irish Rover. Can't see us getting a huge fee for him when he can't stay fit. I think we hope he can eventually come back this year and last through the remainder of the season and next year.

9.) 15 Jan 2016 15:07:43
Bolasie is from Congo Ems.

10.) 15 Jan 2016 16:01:37
Bolasie is from the Congo, Carroll scored 2 or 3 times and is now out again for months, Sterling and Walcott are both considered wingers for England and Defoe has been retired by the England management, just like Lambert. Lad has enough problems without over-egging them!

11.) 15 Jan 2016 16:41:22
I still have yet to see anyone who thinks we should sell Sturridge come up with a reasonable suggestion of who exactly we could sell him to? About the only teams that could afford his wages are Arsenal, United, City, PSG, Bayern, Real, and Barca. Considering he's pretty unlikely to want to leave for less money than he's already guaranteed through 2019, who exactly from the above would buy him?

12.) 15 Jan 2016 17:44:03
Sturridge goes if fit imo.

13.) 15 Jan 2016 18:39:24
Kloppo is being very sensible with Sturridge.
He is looking for a long term solution and a fit Sturridge could be perfect.
Kloppo is giving Sturridge every chance to prove himself. He may not play again this season, but Kloppo is putting him through his paces in training and if he can cope he will be back with a bang.

Don't expect much from Sturridge this season by it is too early to consider selling him. Without a Champions league we won't get anyone better.

14.) 15 Jan 2016 19:06:46
Ive got one word for you EMS - Westerveld. Ming isn't that bad by miles ;-)

An assist and a killer pass are not the same. The term assist doesn't describe whether the receiver had to tap a Ball into the net or he has had to run past three players, to get a shot on target.
