Another transfer out of the “where did this come from” locker.

. Emre Can agrees 4 year deal with Juventus.


1.) 04 Jun 2018 10:39:58
Shocking 😱had him down as the loyal type. Good riddance keita is twice the player he is. Think Klopp not too bothered he’s gone.

2.) 04 Jun 2018 11:09:23
Decent player with good potential but he had some way to go to being ready to tie down a permanent starting spot, and I was never sure if he was a 6 or an 8 or somewhere in between. Good luck to the lad, hope he does well.

3.) 04 Jun 2018 11:10:48
I'm stupefied, astounded, staggered and quite simply flabbergasted by this news. Of all the possible exits, this one is the most unexpected. And to Juventus of all possible teams? Just shows you the unpredictable nature of football. 😉.

4.) 04 Jun 2018 11:11:06
Good riddance? Looks like you aren’t the loyal type either! Not sure what he has done to upset you Barnes?

5.) 04 Jun 2018 11:11:57
I think Can deserves more respect than Coutinho and Suarez Barnes. He didn't force the move or skip training. He kept his mouth shut and was professional about it. He knew his game time would be less next year and chose to go somewhere where he could get more minutes. Hope he does well.

6.) 04 Jun 2018 11:29:47
Agree with Shents, he moved on and so should we. He was a professional and Klopp even mentioned this several times.

7.) 04 Jun 2018 11:41:33
He saw out his complete contract and always gave his all (IMO) - seems as loyal as you could ask a play to be nowadays really!

{Ed002's Note - The last thing clubs want is players to see out their contracts.}

8.) 04 Jun 2018 12:08:40
I think there's a fair smattering of dripping irony in this thread ;-)

9.) 04 Jun 2018 12:24:16
I think the main reason can left was that he knew when klopp had another transfer window that his starting place was most likely gone.

I think we paid 10.5 million or something around that and he has played quite a few positions and number of games since he joined.

I think in overall terms he has paid back his transfer fee and despite the bad games he had he was never bereft of desire to perform and see the club do well.

Cant see how anyone would have a problem with him leaving.

The fact the club aren't getting any money for him is their fault. His contract should have been extended before it got to a year left.

But maybe he wouldn't have signed it even then unless he had the exit clause. But a few seasons back he was starting every game he was fit.

Still it frees up a wage for someone who wouldn't have been in the main starting 11 next season.

Personally id have lallana follow him as quick as posdible. Not sure what they are both on but that should free up about 150k at least.

10.) 04 Jun 2018 12:37:13
For me personally I would of loved to have kept him. When he is on his game he is very good but I agree some below par performances also but I think he can only get better.

All the best to him for his future.

11.) 04 Jun 2018 13:13:10
Biggest mistake was not selling him last year. When he didn't commit to new deal. It was originally about playing time apparently yet when fit he started almost all the time. It then became apparent he then wanted a clause in contract that club weren't willing to add so he should have been moved on. I said this time last year after he won competition with Germany and never signed new deal on return, he would see out his deal and leave on a free which is his right of course. Hopefully the club will learn from this and if player is nearing last 18month or so of deal and doesn't commit then move them on as harsh as it sounds. I wish him luck as he was 1 of my favourite players, just a pity he's chosen to move on.

12.) 04 Jun 2018 13:21:50
What has being local got to do with wanting can gone. Im local and I'm glad he's gone. He can fekir off.

13.) 04 Jun 2018 15:48:53
He didn’t have to force the move he’s a free agent he can go where he wants. Not a bad player but slows the play down too much so Italy will suit his game. He will be remembered for the great goal he scored and nothing else 👋🏻👋🏻.

14.) 04 Jun 2018 16:07:14
This was unexpected / s.

15.) 04 Jun 2018 18:49:35
Can didn't give his all for us, if he did he would be one of the world's best by now. He has all the ingredients, but application is what let's him down. Losing concentration and focus and being positionally un sound in what is a very structured team is not giving your all in my opinion. Everyone has a role, and certain triggers set shapes in motion. Can simply didn't stay on it for sustained periods.

16.) 04 Jun 2018 23:25:10

I think your being slightly harsh mate. There is a difference between giving your all and your concentration levels.

There aren't too many midfielders can's age who are world class.

Some players struggle with concentration and positional awareness. Its not always related to a desire to be an individual rarther than a team player. Sometimes maturity cures the problem and sometimes it just never kicks in.

Gerrard never had great positional awareness.

In can's case i refuse to believe that he simply didn't care. I think its more of a case of him being young and eager. I think the positional awareness will come as he gets older.

If he had such poor concentration and positional awareness perhaps he should not have been playing as a holding midfielder when he did which is hardly his fault.

Im a bit sad to see him go because i quite liked him as a player who i always thought could get better.

He seemed to gain the trait of slowing down and waiting to roll the tackle which he never needed to do. I think he bulked up a bit too much wich cost him a bit in the nimbleness department.

Perhaps it might have been an injury that lost him a bit of spring in his step or a bit of doubt crept into his brain which isn't uncommon and is hard to shift.

Italy is probably league that will suit him better.

Of all the players who have left liverpool over the years can might actually be top of my list of players i would like to see succeed.

He is a player who genuinly loves the game. You can tell that by watching him play.

Sometimes things just naturally run their course.



18 Jun 2017 08:13:19
Hi ed,
The rumour pages have Karius as a target for Augsburg. Anything in this at all?


{Ed001's Note - there are a few clubs in Germany that would be interested if he were to be available. He is not though.}

1.) 18 Jun 2017 08:59:26
Is he still going to be No.1 eds?

{Ed001's Note - it will not be like that, I expect Migs to have the shirt but only so long as he performs.}

2.) 18 Jun 2017 09:19:25
With ward staying that means we have 3 decent - good keepers challenging for 1 place. However to start challenging for major trophies I would prefer us to have a top class-world class keeper in there starting week in week out. Scoring isn't a problem it's keeping the ball out after the opposition have only 2 shots a game.

3.) 18 Jun 2017 09:42:54
I think butland would be a great signing for us . Best English goalkeeper I think . Let karius and ward go out on loan . Mignolet as number 2.

4.) 18 Jun 2017 10:34:30
Agree about Butland Jonboy.

5.) 18 Jun 2017 10:56:45
I don't think we will sign a keeper but now would be the time to buy Butland, his stock is low after a injury plagued season.

6.) 18 Jun 2017 11:44:10
Liverpool signing a goalkeeper that needs building back up? Sounds like a recipe for a ruined career to me.

7.) 18 Jun 2017 11:51:11
I still think karius is good enough, he's hardly had a chance.

8.) 18 Jun 2017 13:39:19
What on earth would we need 4 goalkeepers for?

9.) 18 Jun 2017 15:22:41
Karius, last season was ok on shot stopping and distribution.

His ability on crosses and general mental strength were AT THE TIME below par.
He's a young lad who moved to a new club in a new country.

Whether throwing him in as No.1 was not the right decision especially as he got injured in pre-season.

10.) 18 Jun 2017 16:26:57
From what we've seen karius isn't good enough. Arguably we have the worst keeper in the top six except maybe city. Jack but land would be a great signing imo. Saying that we'd be in europa leage if not for mignolet. I think he has the ability to improve.

11.) 18 Jun 2017 17:03:09
But, johnnyskies, and it's a big 'but, ' is what we have seen truly representative of what he can achieve?

12.) 18 Jun 2017 17:22:34
And when he gets his chance the fans get off his back and give himself time to make it his own.

13.) 18 Jun 2017 19:44:25
Omg the election drama has completely thrown me off football - I can only dealing with one thing stressing me out at a time! Ward is staying? What is the club smoking?

14.) 18 Jun 2017 19:50:19
Johnny if by "what you have seen" in a pathetic amount 10 games, show that Karius is not good enough then you should never be a manager or academy coach cos you would be shipping out players left right and center cos you simply lack the patience to work with them esp. the talented ones as Karius is clearly talented.

As for those calling for Butland, a player who has gone almost a season without playing should give their heads a wobble.

15.) 18 Jun 2017 21:38:41
Brussels-You saying Karius wasn't poor in those 10 games?
Some players don't even get 10 games to prove themselves. It's a cut throat business and if we gave all players a prolonged period in the team regardless of performance then the team wouldn't be very successful.
That being said I'm not writing Karius off, I think he's got a good chance of being our number 1 (mainly because Mignolet is poor) but from what we have seen at Liverpool it hasn't been great.

16.) 18 Jun 2017 23:22:55
10 games is nowhere near enough. You also have to consider he was a young keeper in his debut season coming coming back from a broken hand. Migs was still poor when he first got his place back. It wasn't until the the end of the season when the gk staff changed the routine of training that migs showed improvements. We haven't seen what effect that has had on karius yet. Basically give the young lad a fair chance.

17.) 19 Jun 2017 01:25:44
Top top keepers establish themselves in first ten games. I don't think karius has done that. I haven't written him off but wold welcome improvement in that position.

{Ed001's Note - Buffon didn't. Grobbelaar didn't. In fact I doubt you could name one top top keeper that did.}

18.) 19 Jun 2017 10:41:49
some of the greatest keepers in history were pretty awful in their first year - Buffon, Shilton, Toldo all dropped in and out of first team in first 1-2 years. I think Oliver Khan is the only one who played consistently in first year for Bayern but then he had no competition at the time.

19.) 19 Jun 2017 11:14:51
Just like to add to Nevada's post, think back at how much we were laughing at Utd in De Gea's first season?!

Some people have such short memories.

20.) 19 Jun 2017 11:46:46
Massimo Taibi established himself in his first game and then it all fell apart 😆.



13 Feb 2016 10:57:59
Everyone is always asking Ed002 for her list of players that Liverpool are looking at. Any chance you can do the same from what you've been told? Time permitting of course. I'm sure most would like to have a gander at what you know!


{Ed001's Note - I was hoping to get time today, but not had the chance, I have added it to my to do list to try and get on to it during the week.}

1.) 13 Feb 2016 15:30:01
Thanks Ed can't wait to see it mate.

2.) 13 Feb 2016 20:45:10
That's what she said.

Afternoon Ed,
How worried would you personally feel, for the mentality of the squad if this season was wiped off.
After being a point off last season, 25 points clear this one and still coming away with nothing, could you see heads dropping or do you think it’ll spur the boys on to smash it again on a new season?
Anyhow, hope you are all staying healthy and isolated!


{Ed001's Note - I think it will just give them more reason to go all out next season. They showed this season that disappointment just drives them on to be better.}

1.) 31 Mar 2020 17:53:47
Juicer, I heard that part of the story BUT I don't believe that and am taking it with a pinch of salt esp. coming for the Chinese.



12 Dec 2018 17:08:04
Matip out for 6 weeks with a fractured collar bone.
Nat Philips may get a chance this season after all!


1.) 12 Dec 2018 17:46:45
It may well be that fabinho gets called on at some point with nat being amoung the subs most games until feb.

2.) 12 Dec 2018 17:52:21
Oh hell! he was really playing well in the last few matches. What a shame.

3.) 12 Dec 2018 18:04:42
Gutted, get better soon Matip lad! he has looked decent recently, surprisingly!

4.) 12 Dec 2018 19:23:58
Just at the time where he was starting to play very well. Gutted for the lad. Get well soon, JM.



13 Nov 2018 11:32:39
I see Joe Cole has announced his retirement.
Played over 700 games apparently.
Not bad for one that was perpetually injured.
Could’ve been a great or found his level?


1.) 13 Nov 2018 13:15:11
Certainly wasnt a great in a red shirt. Was it Stevie G who said that Cole was as good as Ronaldinho?

2.) 13 Nov 2018 15:11:29
I remember being very excited when we signed him. He then went on to get sent off in the first game. Classic.

3.) 13 Nov 2018 17:01:40
Joe who? Eden Hazard beta mk1 you mean?

4.) 13 Nov 2018 18:26:21
I thought he had retired years ago 🙈.

5.) 13 Nov 2018 18:56:05
I thought he was still injured.

6.) 13 Nov 2018 21:30:39
I forgot he existed.

7.) 13 Nov 2018 21:40:56
Stevie G actually said that anything messi could do Joe Cole could do and probably better.

You can’t be right all the time.



27 Aug 2018 19:11:08
Liverpool F. C. website have just put up Henderson’s top 5 goals.
He may not score many, but he has some crackers in his locker!


1.) 27 Aug 2018 19:42:34
Damn. Beat me to it. Go watch his top 10 on YouTube. Caught it the other week and meant to post on here.

1 you forget just how long he has been here and 2 you forget how good he actually his technically.

2.) 27 Aug 2018 20:20:07
He should shoot more because he's got the tools.

3.) 27 Aug 2018 20:29:46
Yeah 1000%

Could of been the English Vidal if not for injuries. Still a brilliant player but too unselfish now, passes rather than shoots himself. Can hardly say where worse for it.

There's a goal not on the top 10 that he did a week after Toni kross did it, like the absolute same goal and never got any traction, whereas kross' s went everywhere. Really annoyed me at the time how no-one was appreciating hendos talent.

4.) 27 Aug 2018 20:36:16
I have seen Hendo's top 10 goals as well. Brilliant! Check out the one he scored vs Norwich (the technique is just insane) in 2013 or the one he scored vs Swansea at home in the 13/ 14 season. True belters. These were scored when he was an AM. Now, he is a #6 now who works for others to shine.

5.) 27 Aug 2018 20:42:16
This season I think he'll stay fit and really make a name for himself, the lads quality when fit.

6.) 27 Aug 2018 22:48:10
He scores one or two goals a season. He is decent at a few things goalscoring is not one of them. If you put my top 10 gaols at under 12 county it would not look too much different.

Gini is keeping him out of the team.

Stop watching You tube.

7.) 27 Aug 2018 22:55:04
Mark, who pissed in your cereal this morning?

8.) 27 Aug 2018 23:44:57
Ginis played well.

Hendo came back late after getting to the world cup semis, so had less of a pre season. He's the captain of the club. A major part of our team and someone who will be missed when he is gone.

We were talking about how much quality he actually has, which doesn't get talked about much.

9.) 29 Aug 2018 20:18:43
Mark, no one is watching youtube cos many of us saw Hendo score those goals live at the ground or on television so don't kjnow what that comment is supposed to mean. Also, no one is talking about your top 10 goals at under 12 level or my top 10 goals I scored when playing in the regional leagues in France so comparing your goals (if they indeed exist) to Hendo's makes no sense.

The fact is that Hendo scored goals for us as an AM and even as a DM (check his goal vs Chelsea in 16/ 17) and majority of them were belters and we have visual evidence of that, end of story. As for Wiji keeping him out, how do you know that? You are aware that Hendo and many others came over late for preseason after the WC right? Hendo is the player Wiji wishes he was and he is only playing there cos Hendo needs more time to get right physcally. It has NOTHING to do with ability cos Hendo is light years ahead of Wiji in the DM position.



01 Jan 2018 19:36:10
Hi Ed001
I very rarely get to see any games these days, just what gets written in the media and on here.
I’ve always quite liked Lallana and read today that he dropped deeper when we went ahead.
Do you see him being used or, more critically, being an important player in a deeper position, sorry to compare but a bit like Gerrard became in his latter years.
He’s often had his fitness issues so maybe in a less mobile role, he can keep himself off the treatment table.


{Ed001's Note - I think he will have to as we are short in there right now, so he is going to have to be utilised there until we can address that.}
