It seems fairly clear that the club would like to bring in Thiago at the expense of Wijnaldum if possible this summer. Do any of the Eds know of any potential buyers for wijnaldum or any clubs he has his sights set on?

Anonymous Woolback

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any efforts to sell Wijnaldum by Liverpool, nor anyone making an approach for him.}


1.) 08 Aug 2020 18:15:54
Fairly clear? Eh?
Why would the club be looking to renew Gini's contract if they're going to replace him days later?
What on earth brought you to that conclusion?
Please don't say Tw@tter.


2.) 08 Aug 2020 22:21:32
It seems to me that Thiago is only possible if Gini doesn’t sign a new contract and leaves. I’ve heard that he is interested in going back to Holland but how much truth is in that rumour I don’t know.


3.) 09 Aug 2020 02:31:49
I would be so surprised that Gini would be looking for a move back to Netherlands now. He is still in his prime and can contribute to one of the big clubs in Europe's major leagues for at least the next 3 seasons.

{Ed0666's Note - I said the same thing to Eds 001. Like you say He can make lots more money for the next two to three seasons anywhere in the world and then go home and still win titles galore at whichever Dutch team he chooses. I know it’s not about money sometimes but I’m adamant he won’t go back to holland just yet.


4.) 09 Aug 2020 08:30:51
Ed0666 maybe he thinks he has enough money and just wants to go home to be near his family. Am sure after this contract if he never played again he would have enough money to last him. He might just want him play for his boyhood club in his peak as kids that’s all ways the dream not how much money you can earn.

{Ed0666's Note - yeh I get what you’re saying but I’m not sure that’s the case. Footballers are on the whole mercenaries due to the short career spans. I’m not expecting him to sign this contract on the table, I hope I’m wrong but in this current broken economic climate we have to sell if he’s dragging his heels. We can’t afford to lose him on a Bosman I don’t care how much of a soldier he’s been for us. He a 30 million pound player at least and we can’t just give him away.


5.) 09 Aug 2020 09:32:14
So why won't he sign Ed0666?Where do you think he'll go if he does?

{Ed0666's Note - Barry I have no idea why he’s not signing maybe he’s holding out for more cash maybe he wants to try another avenue who knows? I truly hope he signs as he fully embedded in the Klopp philosophy and trying to embed another midfielder quickly is gonna be an issue. Where would he go? I seriously don’t know but at the price we’ll want with only a year left on his contract I’m sure he’ll have a load of admirers winking at him


6.) 14 Aug 2020 05:13:35
certainly possible Barry, just saying I'd be surprised if this is his position at this stage in his career. maybe C.V. is an influencer? who knows.
for me, I'd like to see him stay in red.

Question for the Eds, seeing a lot of links to Traore which could be plausible, but obviously we have just backed out of signing Werner for around the same amount of money. One detail that astonished me was the amount of money that Werner is reportedly going to be earning at Chelsea, which is more than salah and van dijk and would have been inconceivable at LFC. Do you think that it was a purely transfer fee related issue, or was it more Werners demands both financially and in terms of game time that made the deal implausible?

Anonymous Woolback

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what Chelsea will be paying Werner I am afraid. Liverpool have financial issues as has been explained repeatedly - even Peter Moore issued a statement to the fans. Liverpool did not try and negotiate the transfer with RBL.}


1.) 28 Jun 2020 20:56:27
Hi Ed. was it the fact that they had to pay upfront to activate the buy out clause whereas if they did buy traore for 70m they may be able to pay circa 17m for 4 yrs. which is more affordable?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you mean. Liverpool illegally tapped the player up and they did not speak to his club. In addition to what I have said, the Chief Executive has explained the money situation at Liverpool.}


 

 

04 Dec 2017 12:25:09
Eds, i remember on the sharkopod that you said Barcelona would look to get a deal done before the end of november as one of the key instigators of the deal would no longer be involved and this would lead to them viewing other targets. In this situation, is it possible we could see coutinho stay a bit longer in a de gea to real madrid scenario? Or would he definately try and force a move to another team like psg, madrid, maybe even juventus to replace dybala?

Anonymous Woolback

{Ed002's Note - Yes, we are now beyond the end of November and they will be considering their options. It is possible that Coutinho could move in January or the Summer but be clear he wants out. Coutinho is not of interest to Juventus and he is not first choice for Real Madrid. PSG might retain and interest but it is Barcelona who want him and that is where the player wants to go.}


1.) 04 Dec 2017 19:56:00
Up to Barcelona to make us an acceptable offer. The ball is in their court. 🤝.


2.) 05 Dec 2017 03:05:38
Barca will once again resort to underhand tactics to get Coutinho cheap. We trust Henry to duke it out with them.


 

 

10 Apr 2017 20:29:48
Just read that coutinho rejected the requests of the coaches to stay at home, so he could make the bench for the game on saturday, then to come off the bench and score. This is the exact attitude and type of player we need here at liverpool, hats off to him.

Couts has to stay, build our team around him, need another Mane .


2.) 11 Apr 2017 00:53:45
What would you do with another Mane if you've built your team around Coutinho?


3.) 11 Apr 2017 02:02:09
Coutinho was always needee to stay. He didn't need to do anything like that to justify it.

Hes our boy. Show him the love and he will give you the heart.


4.) 11 Apr 2017 03:24:35
build another mane and mane running around firmino!? and then someone can get their dream of firmino in central midfield realised.! :p.


5.) 11 Apr 2017 03:52:08
probably the best £8.5m the club has ever spent.


6.) 11 Apr 2017 06:07:23
Sure the best 8.5 we ever spent was on ings, that free transfer.


7.) 11 Apr 2017 08:25:26
support coutinho zimbo, as Mane has done.


8.) 11 Apr 2017 15:26:17
Don't worry I'd happily take another Mane! Just not sure if we'll get someone of his level to join with no obvious starting spot. Think hopefully Coutinho, Firmino and Mane will be our starting lineup and wouldn't want to see that changed myself.


9.) 11 Apr 2017 15:41:46
kudos couts, however if and when he is not in form let's remember this instead of wanting him out.


10.) 11 Apr 2017 21:18:01
The problem with football these days is that the Doctors think they pick the team. Hats off to Coutinho for his positive attitude and nonsense to all that red zone, orange zone, green zone crap.


11.) 12 Apr 2017 01:28:00
He must be mad. If someone offered me the day off id take 2.

Haha that's good one mingo.


 

 

20 May 2016 17:56:44
From what i can work out the players we are interested in are:

Chilwell
Hector
Karius
Zielinski
Gotze
Silva

I have never seen any of those players play but i guess any addition at goalkeeper and left back is welcome. Zielinski and silva seem slightly unneccasary unles we get rid of a lot of players. Hector is apparently more defensive minded which is exactly what we need. I was still hoping for perhaps a holding mid to push Can and Henderson more but maybe Grujic is that player. However i fail to see the point of chilwell as he is just another joe gomez surely? And personally i like joe gomez so i'd much rather see him or smith given a chance.

The outs that everybody can virtually agree on are:

Mignolet
Moreno
Skrtel
Lallana
Milner
Benteke
Balotelli
Allen
Alberto
And all the academy players who will be moving on.

If all that happens i'd consider it a very successful summer and cannot wait for next season with a squad of klopps own players.

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 20 May 2016 18:09:47
Lallana will stay, Klopp said as much the other day. I can't see Milner moving on either on his wages and the sort of club he'd want to go to.


2.) 20 May 2016 18:54:38
Joe Gomez is a cb not a lb Rodgers just stuck him there like he did Flanagan. I really like Gomez he's got a lot of promise, good with the ball at his feet, is comfortable with a challenge and not bad in the air. just hope he comes back from injury well.


3.) 20 May 2016 18:54:50
Milner's leading our assists table. I'd keep him on the condition that he's usually played on the right of midfield rather than in the middle.


4.) 20 May 2016 19:07:00
AW, Migs not be moving, neither will Milner. Lallana, I think, may make way for Goetze, but not necessarily. I think illori will move on too.


5.) 20 May 2016 19:53:12
Aren't we also interested/ linked with another midfielder? Dhroud is it?


6.) 20 May 2016 19:58:53
Perhaps Goetze will replace Coutinho? Barcelona have been looking recently and something was said earlier in the year, about him wanting to move on if there is no champions league football at Liverpool.

It wouldn't surprise me if a decent offer came in for him at least. We're not in a position where we can reject the advances of clubs like Barcelona, we haven't got the finances and we don't have any European competition next season.

One thing is for sure, Coutinho will not sell cheap, so if he does leave we'll at least get a tidy sum for him.


7.) 20 May 2016 20:44:40
I don't think Goetze and Coutinho are related at all. I would aso be not so sure either of Hector or Silva are coming in. While Liverpool has scouted both players, we have not made any effort to move for them, and are concentrating on bringing in Zielinski, Chilwell, Karius and seemingly Goetze.


8.) 20 May 2016 21:36:46
Mignolet has a 5yr contract.
He will not be leaving unless some fool offers us more than his contract is worth.


9.) 20 May 2016 22:09:24
im sure whoever klopp buys will be the right player for the team, he knows what he needs to do after this season so i will put my faith in him to get it right instead of trying to second guess him, if he brings these players in then he needs them yes we have other players in the team already but he might not see a future for them because unlike us he sees them every day and knows there weaknesess, like lallana for instance he is a good player but there's hardley any end product from him and i don't think he is at the right standard for us maybe Zielinski will have a better end product because these 2 are very a like, also the players he is buying he is getting them cheap not like BR who over spent on players, its so refreshing that he is getting players this cheap for a change,


10.) 20 May 2016 23:47:07
Great insight despite having never seen any of them play.


11.) 21 May 2016 01:11:06
I don't agree Lallana and Milner should go. 2 of our most consistent performers under Klopp. Allen could do a job as a squad player. Moreno - has still (some) time to learn how to defend. Not sure he will though!


12.) 21 May 2016 07:00:34
AndyM, lalana should go if Gotze replace him. Milner can go if we get Zielinski.


13.) 21 May 2016 14:52:38
Andym that mean no one significant leaving and based on that no one coming in. Simple tranfer window.


14.) 22 May 2016 00:45:17
Skrtel, Benteke and Allen, if he moves, all significant 'Outs'. I don't see CM as a priority for strengthening. Matip and Grujic both significant 'Ins' already done. A GK and Lb needed (Lb whether Moreno stays or goes) . I hope for a lot from Ings next season.

While there is still a month left to go of the window and not many teams have completed significant signings as of yet, i must say i am beginning to get a little anxious about our situation.

The fact that our remaining incomings are reliant on our outgoings is bad enough, even worse so that we look no closer at all to selling any of the players we ought to sell. Maybe i’m just being impatient but i’m worried that we’ll be left with our pants down at the end of the window, settling for Traore and McGinn when we could have had Malen and Bissouma/ Niguez. After last season we really need to get this right.

Is there any real cause for concern Eds or am i just being a reactionary little snowflake? : (.

Anonymous Woolback

{Ed002's Note - It is open for another 6 weeks. You have known all along the club need to balance the books and raise money through sales. I would not worry.}


1.) 14 Jul 2021 12:49:25
I wouldn't worry, a lot happens in the final 2 weeks of the transfer windows and it usually takes one major transfer to begin the big merry-go-round of moves.
Besides, the club have thankfully gone back to being very discreet with their transfers the last few years, so they tend to come out of the blue.


2.) 14 Jul 2021 14:33:32
Usually I’d be sweating over this, but the calibre of player we keep being linked with is underwhelming to say the least for Liverpool Football Club. So I’m kind of relaxed if we don’t get Renato or Mcginn to warm our bench.
Instead of wasting our money replacing Gini we should buy Someone to smash the ball into the net, and put Bobby in midfield.


3.) 14 Jul 2021 17:44:51
I wouldn't worry about something that you've no control over.


 

 

30 May 2021 14:52:02
Wow. What a big result that was last night.

Firstly, congratulations to Chelsea. Fully deserved it on the night and it was great to see players that i love such as Kante and Mount get the plaudits they deserve. Their performances and defensive resilience across the board was incredible.

Choosing who you’d rather see win a champions league between chelsea and city is less than ideal, but i think almost all Liverpool fans agreed that City winning that final would have been a disaster. Through Chelsea winning it, little changes. Chelsea are Chelsea and are a well established big club now that win things all the time. It’s just what they do.

For City, it is considerably different. Their fate has been entirely entwined with ours for for the last four seasons now. Unlike Chelsea, who have always looked comfortable and done well in European football, City suffer greatly from impostor syndrome. They don’t feel comfortable on the biggest stage and bottle it every single year. An exit from the competition for them isn’t merely a disappointment, it is an absolute catastrophe that clearly destroys their mentality and positive state of mind, it turns them into a complete joke. Every year they roll up talking about winning it as if it will be easy, and they bottle it every year. I’m amazed they were able to bounce back after last year but, as i have been saying all season, they are not that good and have been found out in Europe.

City’s success this season has been entirely down to their capacity to rotate, to keep the squad fresh at a time when everybody else has been absolutely knackered and fatigued, as well as the lack of fans that is perfect for their training ground pre-programmed football. They had a favourable and lucky run in the knockouts and as soon as they came up against the only other team that had as big as squad as theirs, the only other team that wasn’t knackered, they got done. For them to have blagged a European cup this season would have been an unmitigated disaster for us. It would have given them the legitimacy they crave and alleviated the pressure on them, establishing them as proper european elite. Instead, they failed right at the end, and the fallout will be massive, and with the rumours that they are going for grealish instead of kane, i can’t see city being able to dominate as breeze through teams as they have this season.

I have a funny feeling next year will be ours.

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 30 May 2021 15:41:58
More than a hint of red subjective assessment going on here. City have a fantastic squad and club. Maybe this loss spurs them on next season? They've won everything else and typically win a couple trophies each season. Something we've not done.


2.) 30 May 2021 15:49:05
I can't stand City and what they represent but to say they've been found out in Europe is a bitter falsehood. They reached the final, they reached the semis the year we last won, i don't remember them ever going out in the group stages. They are a big European team and one of the favorites every year. They beat Porto, Dortmund and PSG en route to the final and they shouldhave won the cup relatively comfortably if Pep had stuck to their tried and tested team and formation.
These days i dislike them as much as Man U but, credit where credits due, they didn't reach the final of Europes premier competition because the other teams were knackered.


3.) 30 May 2021 16:03:12
I totally agree with you. Next season should be our's. We need a big squad and most essentially a goal expert. We were far from being clinical in our attempt to score goals.


4.) 30 May 2021 16:50:04
Man city is not yet a UCL winner. That gives me a bragging right over them. I love their under achievement in Europe as they lack European silverware. They should be jealous of us.

6.) 30 May 2021 18:25:53
Dislike both teams so it was a weird final. One things for sure, Man City will never have a better chance to win it. They will never play a team as bad as Chelsea again in one.

{Ed025's Note - chelsea done a number on them jadon, they will be there again next season and will probably win it mate..

8.) 30 May 2021 19:52:21
AW makes some valid points while others like them being luck and all that, I disagree with. Mainly for me, I agree that City lack the pedigree and mentality to compete on the CL and actually win it outright.

With the manager and seemingly inexhaustible resources at their disposal, it is already a disgrace that it took them this long to make a CL final IMO, which tells me that they suffer some type of complex whenever things get sticky in the crucial CL stages.

Also, having a manager who seems to suffer from the same complex does not help either cos he seems to panic and second guess himself which confuses the players and leads to failure. Sure next season, City will be favs to make the final if not win it outright BUT the more they fail, the tougher it will be for them. Until they actually win it, they are what they are: Chokers.


9.) 30 May 2021 20:09:11
They have to get past a rejuvinated Liverpool first.
Something they struggle to do.

Konate being given the ‘here we go’ from fabrizio romano! Hopefully we’ll see him and a few others join the club before the pre season gets well underway, get the business done early and get players bedded in as soon as possible.

A full pre season and some well earned rest could do wonders for this squad.

After a positive end to this rollercoaster of a season i find it odd that this site has descended into a state of points scoring; people arguing over Wijnaldum, people arguing over Williams, people arguing over Hodgson - we’re not seriously going to do this are we, really?!

All debates and talking points and frustrations are now, finally, irrelevant. It is done. The absolute nightmare that was the 2020/ 21 season is finally over, and my god, how good does it feel.

Second only to 2014/ 15, this has been the most miserable Liverpool season in living memory, a historical car crash of epic proportions, the result of many different factors that went far beyond poor results and rubbish football.

Yet somehow, someway, we ended up finishing third. We don’t get a trophy, and we don’t get any glory. We finished way below the expectations that we had at the start of the season, and yet i can’t think of many times i have been as proud to be a Liverpool Supporter.

For these lads to have pulled it out the bag this late on - 8 wins and 2 draws is a remarkable run even during a regular football season - is nothing short of astonishing. A team with no centre backs, no capacity to rotate and seemingly no confidence or mojo of any kind has dragged its way to third in the final few weeks of the season. We’ve seen Salah and Jota conjuring goals out of absolutely nothing. Robertson has been babysitting two centre backs that were virtually playing at semi-pro level last season, and those centre backs have themselves played way beyond what we could ever have expected of them. Thiago has somehow managed to find composure in the most dire of situations, Firmino has turned his season around despite looking as though he just wanted to burst into tears all year. Trent has been playing with the intensity of a Bath Salts junkie who’s been plugged into the National Grid. A goalkeeper scored a last minute winner.

It has been, as far as playing football can be, nothing short of heroic. They have dragged this club into a position of stability and I eagerly look forward to them reaping their rewards once the new season starts. A few transfers look to be coming through the doors and many of the lads will get some well deserved rest. Even the new home kit looks way better than i thought it was going to. The future is looking bright.

Here’s hoping that the summer is both a relaxing and fruitful one, for players and supporters alike. I have a good feeling about next season.

Up the reds. Allez la rouge. YNWA.

under normal circumstances finishing with 30pts less than the previous season would have been a poor season.

However taking everything that has happened into account there can be no denying that finishing 3rd has been a monumental effort by everybody concerned.

The very fact that the club remains in the champions league and does not have to play thursday night football can only help in not only attracting potential new signings but also gives us better leverage with the stars we already have.

I must give special mention to Jurgen Klopp and Allison Becker who both had to deal with personal tragedy, not being able to say goodbye to there loved ones must have been horrendous and shows us once again that there are more important things in life than football.

The fans were outstanding today and on a personal level i hope all football fans can attend the matches next season.
They provide the much needed atmosphere that players can feed off.

I am confident that with some smart moves in the transfer market during the summer, both comings and goings and we don't suffer the same amount of injuries as this season we will challenge Man City again next season.

Our rivals had the chance to make us suffer this year and did not take it, we won't be giving them the same chance next year.

Excellent post AW i agreed with everything you said.


3.) 24 May 2021 00:40:23
Klopp is a genius. Look how he handled the Mane No Hug incident. Played it down, refused to indulge the baiting media, didn’t publicly reprimand the player, didn’t drop him as a punishment and now Mane delivers when we needed it most.


4.) 24 May 2021 08:50:46
A very good point by kingkenny there. Our rivals could have ensured that this was a disastrous season for us.

They didn't however. And coupled with our amazing finish to the season, we can move on to next season with some positivity and excitement.


 

 

17 May 2021 14:50:35
Everyone knows we need a centre forward in the summer, a real poacher who can get us goals against packed defences, someone who you can depend on to be clinical. It is what we have missed desperately this season (and arguably last), and Origi needs to be upgraded on.

Lots of names have been banded about, such as Daka and Malen, although i’m not sure they’re really what we need, as they play in inferior leagues when chances are in abundance and often on the counter attack against poor defences. Vlahovic is another name who has been thrown out there and he seems much more appealing, as he seems more capable of scoring goals in tight situations and has the height to make use of our exceptional crossers.

But there’s one name that has barely been mentioned, someone who might be available for less this summer than the £50 million required for Vlahovic: Tammy Abraham.

Tall, great heading, composed finisher, an all round great poacher who has very favourable stats in terms of goals per minutes played and xG. He is also proven in the premier league and is surely far less of a risk than a Daka, Malen or the very expensive Vlahovic. Still young and also contributes towards that all important English quota.

Am i being short sighted or is it fair to say that Abraham is good enough to play for Liverpool and is exactly what we need?

{Ed014's Note - Aguero is going cheap 🤷‍♂️

Absolutely no thanks.


2.) 17 May 2021 16:01:06
Tammy Abraham is about as good as Calvert Lewin, both are rubbish Andy Coles.

{Ed0666's Note - thats the most absurd thing I’ve heard in ages and I’m married. DCL is an exceptional player. I’d love him at Liverpool.


3.) 17 May 2021 16:05:07
He is not good enough for Chelsea's first team. Why would he be for their rivals? Stats like goals per min don't mean rubbish. We should be aiming much higher.


4.) 17 May 2021 15:35:19
A fit Aguero at Liverpool for a season or two would be the stuff of legend Ed, but i just can’t be bothered taking on any more injury prone players.

Spending all your energy and focus waiting for a Fowler, Sturridge, Torres or even Keita to come back from injury and save your season is just exhausting and detrimental to the team.

{Ed014's Note - I know the feeling AW having waited on numerous casualties at the Arsenal including the Ox.

Do you think he’s been a waste of money, he was pretty much the same at Arsenal, briefly promise a lot, get injured, take for ever to get over it, come back, show some promise again the bang another injury! 🤦‍♂️


5.) 17 May 2021 16:51:14
Comparing Tammy to a baller like DCL is comical.


6.) 17 May 2021 17:25:49
I seem to remember Sturridge not getting a sniff at Chelsea and a fair number of supporters weren’t in favour of him joining, but he was immense (when he was fit) .

Abraham is clearly not a bad player and at Chelsea he’s always going to play second fiddle to whoever is Roman’s latest shiny plaything.

Get him at less than £30m and I reckon he could be a real steal. It’s worth pointing out that under similar amount of games started last season and total played, Abraham scored more goals that DCL, he’s barely played this season and still has as many goals as Werner who has started more than double the amount of games.

I don’t agree the DCL is an exceptional player at all. He’s decent but Everton and 8th to 15th is about his level.
Tammy Abraham is not as good as DCL and is barely an upgrade on Origi for me.
We have the joint top goal scorer in the league I don’t see any need to buy someone unless they are absolutely right and an upgrade on what we already have. If that’s not available this summer we go again with what we have. They haven’t done that bad for us over the past few seasons.

Remember than Kevin De Bruyne, Daniel Sturrudge, Romelu Lukaku and Mo Salah also couldn't get into Chelsea's team regularly.

Tammy is a decent player. Wouldn't be my pick but he's not bad just because he is the main casualty of Chelsea managers having to justify the Werner and Havertz fees. He'd be an excellent replacement for Origi for example.

I’d take Suarez all day long, won’t expect to play every game, won’t hinder the likes of Elliot and is a winner, the type of player we’ve missed since Gerrard left.


10.) 17 May 2021 20:03:56
DCL is a very good player IMO and he can improve further.


11.) 17 May 2021 20:47:09
Bissouma and Buendia to open up defenses.


12.) 17 May 2021 21:22:02
Adam Armstrong seems to have struck up a good understanding with Harvey Elliot, I would sell Origi and buy him.


13.) 17 May 2021 21:32:18
Pegleg you'd take that scumbag who dragged the club through the mud back? Thank god there's some at the club with sense who won't touch horrible little rubbish again.

Id buy a new keeper and put Alisson up front. Now there's a guy who knows how to find the back of the net.


15.) 18 May 2021 07:37:43
People also said that about Salah didn't they?


16.) 18 May 2021 10:41:58
MKD, Tammy is not even in the same zipcode as KDB, Studge, Lukaku and Salah who could not make that Chelsea team at the time. The players blocking those guys at the time were Hazard, Lampard, Drogba otherwise, Chelsea legends, man. Your comparison is flawed, mate. If he cannot get into a team ahead of a forever-misfiring Werner (at least for this season) then, what type of player does that make him?

We have three players that can fill that role, one is out for the season wirh injury and two are new signings who are learning the ropes. What good would adding another player into the mix do?

I find it very hard to feel sorry for someone who let down all his teammates and tens of millions of fans around the world, on two occassions in the clubs biggest game in a decade, all for a loss of concentration that you find it hard to believe a sunday league player would make. I also find it hard to be sympathetic given that after said mistake, instead of offering to give up his holiday to train all summer and reclaim some dignity (as many of our players have offered to do over the past few years despite not cocking up) he chose to go on holiday without shame and absolutely blitz his social media. And then on top of all that, when we sign a world class player in his position, which all things considered was warranted, he decides to complain about it in public to the press.

I’m not saying i have any particular distain for the guy, i wish him well, but he has left like a spoilt brat and i will not miss him anymore than i did Enrique, Johnson or Balotelli. Mignolet will not get a move he has probably been looking towards for a much longer period of time and still has handled it with more grace than Karius has.

Think it speaks for the measure of the man that he pushed so hard to go to Madrid, has been there 5 years and can’t even be arsed to learn the language, don’t know what he expected to be honest.

Difference being that Fekir has let it be known for a while he willleave, has told the club well in advance and will almost certainly leave with more dignity than any of the others, he won’t have to go on strike or fake injuries to move.

Not to be cheeky Macca, but where is the right back? It’s one of the few holes left to plug.

I don’t watch enough of burnley to know but I prefer the sound of Mee much more than Tarkowski, but id take either of them and put trust in them to grow and iron out their deficiencies.

Butland still makes no sense to me for what he will cost, if we really are after a backup keeper it should be somebody with more experience who will cost little. Call me a romantic but Buffon joining us, even to just be backup, would give me shivers, but Reina would be good as well.

Ceballos seems to have been covered by the Ed’s endlessly and would be a smart buy.

Fekir and Dembele would leave us all in dreamland, I’m not fussed if dembele would only be a loan he has so much talent.

As for the speculation that this all means Salah is leaving, personally any player can leave if they so wish. Say what you like about Suarez, Coutinho, torres or mascherano, but at least they all stayed for a few years before controversially departing. If Salah honestly wants a move after one bloody season, and is incapable to see what we are building here, then sod him. As great as he is I see him as a product of the system, and we could almost certainly find somebody to do a decent job in his stead. This is all hypothetical of course as I don’t think he will leave this summer.

I say without hyperbole that i cannot see any positives in keeping Naby Keita. Terrible attitude, never fit and now stands to potentially block Curtis Jones, who plays in the same mould as Keita only he actually gives a toss. A total liability on and off the pitch. A drain on resources at best and a cancerous disruptor of team spirit at worst. Would rather have a youngster play ahead of him if it came down to it, before anybody uses the ‘strength in depth’ excuse.

Get rid whatever the price being offered is imo.

I equally don’t think he moved to Paris because a few people were mean to him on the internet. In fact i think it’s utterly pathetic and downright embarrassing that he tried to pretend his departure was anything but a disagreement over his own worth.

He’s obviously trying to save face after his tantrum on the final day of the season, when surely somebody must have pulled him to one side and reminded him that being unable to agree a deal with another party is not a criminal offence, and that Gini would not have been the first individual to experience this in the last 10,000 or so years of human civilisation. He’s spent the last couple of months trying to come up with a story that will suitably explain or justify his protests, and this was the best he could come up with.

Why he couldn’t have just said nothing and go out on a high, as the club clearly intended for him to do so, i do not know. He had to spoil it with his childish and meritless complaints. He has gone down in my estimations massively, and that’s after me trying to forgive and forget the final 6 months of his career when he clearly couldn’t be bothered putting any effort in when the team needed him most, although in his eyes he seems to think we should have given him a participation trophy just for being fit.

I’d even go as far as to say it’s a sign of clear contempt for the fans. If he believes we’re too stupid to realise that A) none of us noticed that he was playing walking Subboteo football towards the end and that nobody is allowed to question his commitment, and B) that we’re all seriously meant to believe that he upped sticks with his entire family to another country because of abuse he got on social media (apparently people are immune to this when living in Paris), then he probably doesn’t have much respect for any of us at all.

From where i’m standing, Gini comes across as a pretty narcissistic and petulant individual and i for one am glad he is no longer playing for Liverpool Football Club. He’s turned his departure from a ‘timely farewell’ to ‘good riddance’ all on his own.

He played a bit deeper towards the end of the season and was playing a lot better as a result. He looks like more of a goal threat coming into the box late than he does trying to play half as a goalscorer and half as a link player. I’d rather make the most of his abilities in a deeper role when possible now.

As has been said numerous times before, this is virtually the same squad that broke all the records for two years only with a lot of new players (who weren’t able to be put to best use last year for obvious reasons) and probably a couple of further new additions as well.

If after all these boys have achieved and proven you still are going into the season with doom and gloom, saying you don’t even expect this squad to make the top 4, i quite honestly don’t know why you bother following us. What more do they have to do to earn your trust?

Sounds like some people allow their mood to be dictated more by signings than they do actual football.

He’d be my choice but apparently we aren’t interested : ( shame as i think a more traditional striker to make the most of crosses from the full backs could be just what we need. Klopp seems to want a more nippy player who can play out on the wings instead.
