Is there actually any news source or site that is accurate for rumours anymore? To be honest, this is the only site I’ve trusted for many years but surely there has to be some journalist out there still left with credibility.


1.) 17 Feb 2018 09:45:50
I don't bother anymore. I used to think The Independant were quite good, but I've changed my mind lately.

From down here in Australia, this site is goldust. Thanks and respect to the creator, all other Ed's and all contributors.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate.}

Well said, it’s a terrific site.

4.) 17 Feb 2018 12:47:26
Always recommend this site ed's are genuine and want to help where they can and don't take much rubbish.

5.) 17 Feb 2018 13:41:45
Love the honesty on this site. Thanks eds.
not going to lie though I still believe we're signing Leo Messi every window when we're linked with him on LFCSingaporeDaily. con.

Take it from me. Over a decade of trust! Best site from the day one!

A typical Liverpool match for when it doesn't work for us. We never seemed to get out of second gear because we had the game won before we stepped on the pitch. In truth, this is one of the best teams we've had for years player for player and balance but there's something missing. If we had Roy Keane or graham souness captaining that team we would be title contenders. Someone to drag a performance out of the rest of the players. Matip has everything a defender should have but a winning attitude. Gini has sublime skills but coasts constantly. Can you imagine a vocal captain allowing such ability to go to waste. Klopp can scream all he wants at the players but it's quite evident that once they get out on the pitch, they're finding it difficult to raise their game against the smaller opponents. We've reached a point where the players can't seem to do it on their own- more than ever I think we are in dire need of someone on the pitch to tell them they're not doing enough- to demand better. Can I add that although I've struggled to trust Robertson's ability to defend-more than ever I'm hoping I'm wrong about him- forget ability, he has a nice nastiness to him which is sorely missed in many of our players.


1.) 23 Jan 2018 08:23:43
Time to buy a decent player. Risking top four selling Phil and not buying anyone creative. Madness! The team isn't good enough.

2.) 23 Jan 2018 08:38:47
Coutinho played in a few similar games to last night. The 0-0 home draw to west brom.

3.) 23 Jan 2018 11:05:07
A decent player will not bring a tenth of what Cou brings so you will have to be a bit more elaborate on what you mean by us signing a decent player. As Hugh said, Cou has played in the same dross games this season like vs WBA, Burnley, Newcastle and we did not win those either. The fact of the matter is that saying we can do w/ o Cou after putting 4 past City and saying we lost vs Swansea cos he was not there, cannot be correct at the same time. The answer is somewhere in the middle. Also, we were dross from top to bottom last night, FACT. No captain would have made that team play better cos they seemed to lack any kind of idea, plan, patience and composure. Sorry, but IMO, Roy Keane or Souness can crack as many skulls as they want BUT it won't change a darn thing in a team perf. with that many flaws. We were poor all over and we all need to understand that, learn the lessons, get better as a team and move on instead of constantly pointing the finger at irrelevant parameters in isolation as a cop out for a poor team perf. all round.

4.) 23 Jan 2018 11:44:57
Although i think we have the quality to cope without Coutinho, he would've made a difference on the pitch last night. Why? Because he is direct and he can take a set piece. You only need one player to run at the opposition and it opens up space for everyone. None of our players did it. For all Salah's pace running on to the ball and his quick feet at a slow speed in the box, he is shocking t running at a back 4. The ball seems to bounce off his shins as he runs. Mane has a bit more skill and balance at pace, but he is just one player, who will have bad games.

Easiest way to replace Coutinho? Put Arnold on the pitch. Even if it is only at right back, he will still run at teams because he is young and fearless, but most importantly he can swing a cross or a corner in for our two 6ft5 defenders. It is criminal to hit the first man as often as we did last night. That is what cost us ultimately. In a scrappy game you need to make the most if your set pieces. Swansea did. We didn't.

Coutinho would arguably have buried that free kick and put at least 2 good corners in. Arnold probably would've too and that is why he should be the first name on the team sheet now. You can't play modern football without a set piece specialist. Set pieces must contribute to nearly a third of all goals, surely? Anybody know the actual figures for that?

Spot on Adam! Nailed it!

6.) 23 Jan 2018 12:30:23
I think the importance of a good captain in the premier league is greatly unappreciated. We haven't had one in two decades.

7.) 23 Jan 2018 20:03:27
AOE, it is getting overblown, IMO.



17 Jan 2018 08:25:01
Can anybody explain to me Emre Can? I am a fan but I just can’t understand his season at all. I’ve never known a player who is so hot and cold in matches but I’m not sure that’s down to his ability. If I’m being honest I always think he’s up for the fight with energy and work rate yet some matches it just doesn’t work for him while others it does and spectacularly at that. Is it down to klopps tactics or his chosen partner in the middle? Or is it just down to opposition? I’m usually able to figure these things out but with his future still in doubt I find myself thinking one week “ah, best of luck to the lad in Italy, the game will suit him better” to “our midfield is screwed if he leaves in January”. Help!


1.) 17 Jan 2018 08:46:32
Um this topic spins my head aswell, He's so inconsistant but when he's good he's very good and fits in that midfield 3 perfectly. Fans seem to change their mind week in week out in terms of wanting him at the club.

2.) 17 Jan 2018 08:49:38
For me, he is a great midfielder. He is aggressive, his passing range is under rated, he has excellent close control, and when he is playing with passion he can be unplayable. He is still a little bit raw at times though admittedly.

My problem all season has been that I've not seen the passion in his performances. He celebrates like a supporter, but his actual work rate was non existent. I can't get over what he did against Arsenal, when Ozil ran past him and Can not only saw him do it and didn't even make a slight move to follow him, but he then threw his arms about after Ozil scored as if it was someone else's fault! I was absolutely enraged by that.

However, against City, he played with that same passion that we saw at the back end of last season when he helped us to battle our way across the finish line to qualify for the Champions League (thinking of his performances against Everton, Burnley and Watford in particular) . If he can maintain that motivation, then great. But it is worrying that he's only managed to motivate himself once in the last couple of months, against the best team in the league. Those are the games it's easy to be up for. We'll see against Swansea if his attitude has changed, or if he just wanted to put himself in the shop window.

I am a huge fan of Can ability wise, and his application was exemplary on Sunday. I only hope that he maintains that level until he signs for Juventus in the summer, which i still think will happen to be honest.

We won't miss him though. Keita is twice the player from what I've seen, Ox looks a genuine top class midfield option now, and I'm sure we'll sign another first team quality midfielder. The likes of Gini, Hendo and Lallana are also top quality players when fit and in form.

3.) 17 Jan 2018 09:11:06
Regardless of his form He is still the best CM at the club. He is excellent on the ball. Isn’t he? Juts like most of the germans he has a very good touch. He can pick a pass and he is really good at it. I have not seen a single player in the league that could knock off the ball from his feet. He is a monster.
Can’s best feature is when he drives forward with the ball. It’s a pleasure to the eyes! Give him to Man city and He will play ahead of Fernandinho all day of the week. Give him to UTD and he will play ahead of Matic! Give him to Chelsea and He is certain to play ahead of Drinkwater or Bakoyako. Give him to spurs and he starts ahead of both Dier and Wanyama. His only issue for me is he is lazy at times and doesn’t track back enough. He believes there is someone behind him to check his back.
Can is one of those stopper who could carry and drive with the ball really well. Isn’t that what you are looking in Nzonzi or Savic?
I have no idea how and why Klopp doesn’t see him in his future plans!

4.) 17 Jan 2018 09:12:17
He is relatively young and, whilst he does have some games were he seems imperious, he has others where he looks lackadaisical and uninterested. I think, like a number of players in our team, he has issues with motivation against lesser opposition. The players put in the shifts of their life against the Cities, the Arsenal's, etc etc but it's those tight, niggling games against the hard to beat, so-called lesser sides where we do struggle. I would of liked us to keep Can as I think the consistency will come and, when it does, he'll be a good asset. However, him leaving is not the end of the world, there are players of equal or better ability out there who we will be able to sign and long term, it suits us better to look for a player who wants to join rather than trying to convince a player looking for the exit to stay. A good, but far from irreplaceable, player.

5.) 17 Jan 2018 10:17:26
Spot on, BD and MK. Can is like any other CM or player learning the game as he is just 23. He is immensely talented BUT still rough around the edges and inconsistent. That is normal, IMO. But the best thing for him now is that in spite of his rough edges, he is still a beast and is part of the vaunted German setup and has the might Juve on moving heaven and earth to sign him. These teams are not run by mugs. These guys know what they are doing which is why they win most of the time.

I just think that he needs to know where he stands in terms of playing time and chances really, as Ed01 has said numerous times. IMO, I would keep him if I had to pick cos he grew up here footie wise, we built him and we are not finished with him yet. We'll see.

6.) 17 Jan 2018 10:21:16
Always rated Can. Sometimes he does slow down our play by taking some extra touches. IMO he is destined to be a very top midfielder. That's just my opinion. But Klopp has shown sound judgement regarding players and transfers till now except for the GK position. If Can goes I think we will miss him since Henderson is unreliable ATM with his injuries. Whatever Can chooses I wish him the best. I think he has shown tremendous commitment even in the last few months. I know others have different opinion about him.

7.) 17 Jan 2018 12:12:04
One point to make is that he has played a lot of games not 100% fit either from what Klopp has said whether this has impacted some performances I don't know. Against City he was ill but did well. Anyway i think we will regret losing him if we do.

8.) 17 Jan 2018 12:49:24
He has talent but is so inconsistent and has so many flaws. He only plays well when he plays like a bull in a china shop and while effective, that is the limit of his talent. He can't really dictate the pace of the game. He often dribbles himself into dead ends. He isn't really a goalscorer, but again, he has made good runs in the past, he just doesn't do it enough. He has the size to be imposing defensively, and sometimes does, but often does not, does not use his head, and let's runners coast past him. When he plays well he plays very well but it is not enough, none of his flaws have been improved upon, he goes missing for large chunks of the season then sticks in a few good peformances to make us keep the faith. He has been too inconsisten for too long, a jack of all trades but master of none, i can see why the club are willing to let him go.



15 Jan 2018 12:25:15
Is it any wonder we have a keeper problem when tv like sky salivate over the misfortune of an error from a keeper thrown into the toughest challenge of the season. Cue idiots threatening him thereafter. Hopefully klopp let's the lad have a proper run in the team and shows just a fraction of the patience he showed migs. Can we all show a little restraint over the next few games as a young German kid once hailed as the next great German keeper tries to take hold of his chance.


1.) 15 Jan 2018 12:55:59
To be honest I think he's been great this season, but I actually think Ederson looked poor yesterday. He got lucky dropping 2 crosses in matter of a minute both landing at 1 of his own players feet. Also Salah goal. Such a pity about the 1st goal as before that Karius had looked fine coming and collected a few crosses with no problem. Feel it's obvious we need a top gk in summer to take us to next level.

2.) 15 Jan 2018 13:12:22
the thing is everyone is forgetting we played the best attack in the league it would of been very difficult to keep them out, yes he should of had a stronger hand for the first goal but its not all down to him if Gomez read the flight of the ball we wouldn't be talking about this or if Matip actually defended properly in that situation it would of been a non starter, I hope Klopp plays him from now on in every game get a good rhythm and he has the potential in there to be a really good GK hopefully at the end of the season we will all be saying how well he has done, just to touch on the abuse he is getting they are not Liverpool fans they are vile rats.

{Ed025's Note - they are the scum of the earth kloppers, liverpool have to stick with him now until summer and just hope he cuts out the basic errors mate..

3.) 15 Jan 2018 14:39:59
Unfortunately lad's every club has those type of"rat's"to contend with. But like all player's 1st all club's they all know who the decent fan's are.



13 Jan 2018 11:43:30
Seems to me getting cup tied is a strange rule. Why is it still enforced? I also find it strange that bigger clubs around the world haven’t pushed to get rid of it?


{Ed002's Note - Clubs are perfectly happy with the rule.}

1.) 13 Jan 2018 13:09:20
seems to me the rule is perfect, it makes it so a team like barce can't buy world class players like coutinho/ more players this time of year and roll thru the champs league!

I think we'll go back in for lemar regardless of sources saying this, that and the other. I don't even read the rags because they change daily. Anyone who's aware of this site probably shouldn't either.

Good post mk. How about we put Robertson on the right. Robertson's energy is what earns his place on the team sheet but alas, not much else is top class so if he's put in the right his attributes won't really change too much. I think he makes the players around him raise their game which- when you look at the talent at the club and the terrible attitude against lower teams, it's invaluable. I don't mind his average crossing. I just wish he was stronger in the tackle and read the defensive game a but more. I think he's too old to vastly improve but with a little cover from midfield I think we'd be alright. There would certainly be great pace from both flanks.

Was he that bad ed1? I know it was a move he'd wanted all his career but I'm not sure he was really wanted when he arrived. I remember sky making a big deal about him being a Liverpool supporter at the time and interviewing him in a cringeworthy made up kids bedroom. I'm not sure he was the type of player we needed though- I'm also fairly certain he never really got a run of games. Was it down to attitude or ability? I would be very interested to hear more though if you have a moment. After the match perhaps? Cheers.


{Ed001's Note - attitude, though imo he was nowhere near good enough anyway.}

Cheers for the reply ed2, it’s nice to hear we at least have a plan with the lad. Can’t help but wonder how some of the young players’ careers may have turned out with the right structure in place. I’m a big believer in youth and in this day and age, proper development for youngsters should be a massive priority going forward in light of the insanity in the market. Not to mention the irresponsibility of mismanaging youth. I really hope the club changes it’s ways. I really hope this is a sign of at least a little thought being put into the future.
