I read Chelsea are willing to listen to offers for Kante, would he be a player we'd be interested in at all?

Bill

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea has not put Kante up for sale - there is interest in him from a couple of clubs - if one were to come up with an acceptable offer and Kante to Chelsea he wanted to move then they would not stand in his way. Liverpool have shown no interest in him and do not have the money to buy him.}

We have fab why would we want kante.


2.) 13 Jul 2020 11:54:28
I would take him in a heartbeat. Like ed002 says though we can’t afford him, that’s a silly money transfer and we don’t have silly money.


3.) 13 Jul 2020 12:05:14
Personally, I think Kante’s legs are going and there’s not many miles left on the clock, I’m more than happy with Fabinho personally as his all round game is better.

Guys what's with the furore over our goal against Forest? Missed it (cos I missed a few and they won every match so superstitious me won't watch them now lol) but saw it on MOTD, looked off originally but was on when u saw the lines and the right angle

What's bugging me is all I see now is the wrong angle showing him off and the usual LiVARpool rubbish. I mean have people forgot the armpit hair or toenail offsides that go against us all the time?

Also bringing up the Lukaku one in the final. I thought he was on but thought there was nothing wrong with Matip's goal either.

Personally I think if it's that close the decision should go in favour of the attacker, thought that was a rule tbh?

Bill as the saying goes mate Jealousy is just love and hate at the same time.

Other clubs and fans will always look at the teams that are doing well and have a jealousy agenda.

I for one used to hate UTD's success but christ they were a good side and i hate to admit when i watched them as a neutral 9 times out of 10 they were more entertaining than us and the green eyed monster would come out every time they lost.


2.) 21 Mar 2022 16:11:43
Get ready for the fume over the next two months. Every kick, every tackle, every decision will have heads wobbling all over the place. Football eh?


3.) 21 Mar 2022 19:17:20
There’s an article written in the Independent from 2014 called ‘English public wrong on just about everything, study finds’. I feel like this is another one of those instances. Have people never heard of forced perspective?


4.) 21 Mar 2022 19:55:26
Nothing wrong with our goal. On the initial replay it looked slightly off. But when they showed a better angle it was clearly onside, close but hardly controversial.
The most controversial moment I suppose was the penalty appeal, at first glance I did think Alisson had caught him but when you see a replay he’s clearly dragged his foot back and tried to win one.
So 2 moments and the refs got them both right for once.


5.) 21 Mar 2022 20:09:13
I think we should have had a penalty in the first half for the challenge on Jota.


6.) 22 Mar 2022 09:09:08
Never even saw that Rigsby, MOTD didn't show it lol

Just interesting how things play out, our goal was grand but the crap it has stirred is wild. Many worse, actual poor VAR calls haven't got the same reaction (City penalty at Wolves for 'handball' for.


7.) 22 Mar 2022 11:20:36
The commentators were saying it was a great tackle, Bill. The defender never touched the ball and went through Jota. It wasn't even checked.
Ah, well.


 

 

17 Jan 2022 18:29:10
What are peoples thoughts on the Ox? Not MOTD fever cos he scored but I've always had a soft spot for him. Generally works hard, def puts the km in each game and strikes from distance too.

Always hope he'll rediscover his pre Roma form but am I silly for that? Home grown as well which we struggle with atm, but he's just a player I like. Thoughts?

Bill

1.) 17 Jan 2022 18:38:21
I'll always like him as a character, he's got a great personality and is great in the media.

On his day he can be a really aggressive strong force, and he's pacey, unfortunately we don't get much of him 'on his day'.

I just think he'll always fall in the category of a player hampered by injuries. As much as I like him I see him as a squad player, unfortunately for him I think he needs a run of games to hit real form so that role doesn't really suit him.

Great guy, good servant, I imagine he makes way for Jones/ Elliot and we replace him with an upgrade in the squad. Hopefully he gets a move to somewhere like Southampton and has a solid little career after us.


2.) 17 Jan 2022 19:11:47
He doesn’t do anything in midfield it’s like he doesn’t know where to play or how to connect and then on the wing he generally seems to have lost the ability to dribble past a player and he doesn’t seem to have any speed left either. It’s really strange he should be good in midfield but he doesn’t seem to understand his role in there.


3.) 17 Jan 2022 19:25:01
He's had a good run of fitness, but he doesn't get in the team that much and doesn't look like being back to what he was when he does play.

I want to be wrong about this, I want the player we had 17/ 18 back, but I don't think I am wrong. Best for both parties for him to find a new club, imo.


4.) 17 Jan 2022 19:27:38
Honestly? I thought he was anonymous until he scored.


5.) 17 Jan 2022 19:56:46
He seems a nice and popular figure amongst the squad and fans. But I believe he’s another who’s in the 18 month left category and I can’t see him being offered another one. If the leaked wages are to be believed he’s something like the 10th highest paid player in the squad.


6.) 17 Jan 2022 20:02:01
Love ox. would love to see him get back to his best. Nothing better than an ox screamer. But I fear we are going to be disappointed, another injury prone star. On a plus Fabinho seems to be hitting a few.


7.) 17 Jan 2022 20:30:36
He has never been the same player since his injury against Roma, that was almost 4 years ago so I think it's time to accept he'll never get back to that level again. He has flashes of his old self and can sometimes look good but he is now unable to put a consistent run of good performances together.


8.) 17 Jan 2022 20:45:31
I good 10 mins in 10 games isn’t good enough! Should of been sold long ago!
Who cares if he’s a sound bloke means f all when it’s not bringing in silverware!


9.) 17 Jan 2022 21:44:54
I agree with Thunderbird.

That said, I’ve nothing but respect for him as he’s a decent bloke and clearly a good character around the squad, just a shame he’s had such bad luck with injury.


10.) 17 Jan 2022 22:32:34
Ox is one of Klopp’s favourites, and looks to be integral to the morale of the group.
If ever there was a time to get rid of him, it would have been after his first bad injury at Liverpool.
Klopp went and signed him to another contract.
It wouldn’t surprise me that he stays until Klopp leaves.


11.) 17 Jan 2022 22:43:29
Spot on Thunderbird and VVVV.

He was really hitting peak form up to (and including) the Roma game. It’s a real shame that he hasn’t been able to get back to that level and probably never will give the length of time since the injury.

He seems like a really decent bloke off the field and I’m sure he’s a really popular member of the squad. On the pitch he seems like he is a better performer the greater his confidence but not being a first choice for any one of the midfield roles means that he doesn’t necessarily get that run of games to rebuild the confidence that probably means when he does get a game he isn’t right mentally to play his best.

In an ideal world he would recover his form and force his way into a starting role but, in reality, it might be better for him to move on for his own sake. Either way, good luck to the lad - he deserves to play regularly and make a go of it.


12.) 18 Jan 2022 09:50:37
I love Ox and will always have a soft spot for him cos he could have gone to Chelsea for more money and wages BUT he said no and came to us when we were just starting to et really and we all saw how we improved with him in the team after "He who shall remain nameless) threw his strop and threatened to blow up the DR if he was not allowed to get his "dream" move, disgracefully left us.

He actually made us a better team cos that is what Klopp does: He makes players better. That said even tho, that injury vs Roma cut out his momentum, he has still contributed to our success. Only the front 3 scored more goals than Ox in 19/ 20. As for his injuries, Ox has been fit for the past 18 months so there goes that narrative down the tubes. Ox does not get enuff games to put consistently good perfs. together, IMO and that is his main problem.


13.) 18 Jan 2022 17:55:41
He's average.
His strength is running with the ball, he doesn't do that that well anymore and it isn't going to get better.
A signing that didn't work out.


14.) 18 Jan 2022 23:43:10
He deserves game time but I don't think it should be at LFC. Good luck to the lad if he we're to be sold to a club perhaps like Brighton.

Guys, I'm not an English fan, being Irish lol, but have to say congratulations - the English have been decent enough any match I've seen them and all are definitely playing their hearts out.

Whilst the penalty was soft hey it is what it is, don't over debate that and just take the win, like I said congratulations and good luck in the final folks.

Bill

Great performance, chuffed to bits with how the tournaments going, can't help but wonder if Pickfords lining up for a clangor though, been ok this tournament but looks to get over excited and lose concentration putting defenders on edge, Come On England.


2.) 08 Jul 2021 11:12:38
Lancaster, he had a 'clanger' yesterday to be fair. Can't be beaten from a 25 yard free kick that's only a yard or 2 off the centre of the goal. He also keeps punching crosses he should be catching. Aside from that though, i'll admit he's had a pretty good tournament. They all have to be fair. Not an England fan, but pleased for Hendo if nothing else.


3.) 08 Jul 2021 10:45:57

4.) 08 Jul 2021 11:19:32
Mad how he's winning the golden glove and has only conceded one goal all tournament. Especially considering how many mistakes he has in him and how the defenders infront of him all have question marks about their qualities.

I mean fair play to England but you have to question the quality of international foodball. That back 5/ 6 line up against a prem team then I'd be confident of goals.


5.) 08 Jul 2021 11:21:46
I'm Irish as well and I was cheering on Denmark last night but reckon England deserved to get to the final.

They've played well all tournament, tough to break down and should be an interesting final.

Fair play to Sterling as well 110 minutes played and his energy levels were still phenomenal.


6.) 08 Jul 2021 11:28:17
Pickford is a bit short for a keeper and he’s also got short arms, so there’s always the possibility that he’ll be beaten like that (as Courtois pointed out in the past so hilariously), didn’t help that his starting position was poor and he lined the wall up badly. I think Italy will see him as one of the weak points.


7.) 08 Jul 2021 13:11:48
I still maintain that no walls for free kicks from that distance is a better option. Gives keeper a clear sight all the way and no keeper really should be conceding from 25+ yards with clear sight unless it is a truly special strike.


8.) 08 Jul 2021 13:13:19
VVVV hence Southgate is there to protect those weaknesses as much as he can with he's tactics the same way he has done with ENG defenders.


9.) 08 Jul 2021 14:04:45
Pickle if I were him I'd only have 3 max in a wall from there, just cover the post, the rest of the goal I'd cover, only problem is attacking teams put there own wall up to block keepers sight, he left himself with too much to do, his starting position was not central enough, he gives me the impression though that he either hasn't got the quickest feet or he holds back on that extra step to pull out a save for the cameras, which is a dangerous game at that level and can easily get caught out, which has happened on many an occasion to him.


10.) 08 Jul 2021 15:22:48
Very true 4V. If Italy want to beat us they should definitely target around the goal area.


11.) 08 Jul 2021 15:35:34
The only way to improve Pickford’s “short” comings is to stick him on one of those medieval racks.


 

 

31 Mar 2021 09:02:59
The Konate rumours gathering pace, I'd be happy with that, always like to get our business done early.

Think Matip could leave, possibly Phillips too but would leave us well stocked at cb with Konate the starter with VVD and Gomez and Kabak to rotate and back up as necessary.

What other signings, if any, would you like? I personally would like another attacker/ striker to rotate but on the left maybe as we do not want to hinder Harvey Elliotts progress.

Midfield I think we are well enough stocked with Hendo, Fan and Thiago starting with Jones, Milner, Ox and Keita rotating.

Thoughts?

Bill

1.) 31 Mar 2021 10:55:05
I agree Bill.

Being realistic, we could do with a few more places like LB if Tsimikas is deemed a mistake.

But if much rather us spend all our budget in 2 quality additions a CB and ST.

If Konate is that CB, Alexander Isak would be my choice of striker. If money was no object (which it is), I think Lauturo Martinez could be a good firmino replacement. Haaland if we wanted to go in a different direction.


2.) 31 Mar 2021 11:10:27
If we are talking what would be nice to have next year, signing Konate, Jonathan David or Leon Bailey would be fantastic prob massively unrealistic

GK - Alisson, Kelleher, Pitaluga
Rb - TAA, Neco
CB - VVD, Gomez, Konate, Kabak, Davies
LB - Robbo, Tsimikas
CM - Fabs, Hendo, Thiago, Jones, Ox, Keita, Grujic
Forwards - Salah, Bobby, Mane, Jota, Taki, David or Bailey

Players to be sold
Adrian, Gini, Shaq, Origi, Phillips, Matip, Milly, Ojo, Wilson, Karius, Awoniyi, Millar, Lewis, Arroyo, Woodburn

Players to be loaned
Rhys, Sepp, Elliot

David or Bailey would be fantastic additions to the squad maybe leaning towards bailey more since he can play across the entire front line as would Konate be if he is over his injury's, I feel Elliot should be loaned for one more year playing in the premier league.


3.) 31 Mar 2021 11:40:11
Defence as per above, sell Matip + 1 of Phillips or Davies, buy Kabak and Konate. Konate can also cover at RB (as can Fabs) so that maybe frees up Neco Williams for a season long loan, along with the young CBs.

I would look to someone like Bissouma in midfield as we don't really have a rotation/ cover option for Fabs as our other midfielders are more CM or CAM types. I would sell Ox, Keita (take the loss) and Shaq. Jones is our Wiji replacement and would provide plenty of options with Hendo, Bissouma, Fabs, Milner and Thiago.

Up front, I would sell Mane and possibly Firmino too. I would go all out for Mbappe and look to a young striker who fits our system (scorer, but also hardworking and creator) for the £20m-£30mish mark - I see we have been linked with players like Malen recently who would fit the bill.

We would then have Salah (tied down to a new contract in the next few months, hopefully), Mbappe, new striker and Jota to choose from. I would also be tempted to keep Elliot and give him a dozen or so games (mainly cups) with some sub appearances too. If Minamino has adjusted, I would have him back too.

Looking at our current squad, I would look to sell the following players:

Matip + Phillips/ Davies - c£20m
Ox - c£15m
Keita - c£20m
Shaq - c£15m
Grujic - c£15m
Woodburn - c£8m
Origi - c£15m
Mane - c£100m
Firmino - c£50m
Ojo - c£5m

Those figures will no doubt be out (up or down), but we've got around £250-£260m from sales right there.

We have c£50m to spend on our defence (Kabak and Konate), around £25m on Bissouma for midfield, I think we could get Mbappe for around £150m given his contract situation, plus around £30m on another forward/ striker.

Not far different from our potential sales (excl agents fees, VAT etc) .

That would be a perfect summer for me!

Got to say I disagree kloppers, I watch a lot of European football and Bailey always flatters to deceive. Electric player but only has a handful of good games a season. David has just moved to rennes and flattered to deceive in his first season, so I think we should wait on him too. Would much rather see us go after other players. All opinion though and that’s what make this page interesting.


6.) 31 Mar 2021 22:43:13
David plays for Lille bud, not to sure if your getting him mixed up with Doku at Rennes, 30 games 9 goals 2 assists in his first season with Lille is pretty decent.

{Ed077's Note - David did struggle during the first half of the season and has only found form after Christmas.


7.) 01 Apr 2021 08:15:58
Totally Agree Ed077 but I would give him the benefit of the doubt moving to a new club and adapting to a different style of play, looks to be a talent!


8.) 01 Apr 2021 08:18:50
Getting understudies for Robbo and Trent is extremely difficult. I think years ago full back was deemed one of the least important positions on the pitch (still is for a lot of teams) but with the way Klopp plays and Robbo and Trent in there it’s one of our most important. You take one of them out and it actually nullifies the other as it’s a lot easier for opposition to defend one side of the pitch if the other isn’t as much of a threat. That’s why we hardly see either taken out of the firing line and both play more or less every minute when fit.

I think it would be neon impossible to find players of the calibre of both to understudy. If we had 2 defensive full backs in reserve then it would allow us to probably be more adventurous with our midfield and attacking line up then thus giving us a plan B or formation change if needed in games where we are having no joy. Because I’m sure the likes of Burnley, Brighton, Fulham etc love it when our attacking full backs are pushed forward pumping balls into the box whilst Mo and Mane are in the box against 6 defenders and Bobby and the midfield are sat deep covering the full backs.

Can Sangare play both the 6 and 8 roles or have I read that wrong? Could be a decent player and more affordable than others we've been linked too - would definitely love someone that could cover Fabs.

I like Nunez, think he'd be a good fit. Nkunku would be the other and I think he can play anywhere across the front line to good effect. Both are young and good goal scorers which I think is the profile we want.

Gomez is a top player and his pace means he can play the high line we want very well. Honestly hope he stays as I see him and Konate as our cb partnership for years to come.

And tbf Ed, Pickford had a decent end to the season and a great Euros. Never be a top, top keeper but eradicated a lot of the constant silly mistakes he was making week in week out and looks a lot more solid for it.

{Ed025's Note - he has grown up bill...finally, im not saying hes a world beater mate but hes a decent keeper imo..

Jeez, we played a bad game, it happens. Same team played class last week against City and just weren't at the races today

City actually lost their first game last season and still won the league it's only one game and it seems we did well not to lose.
