Henderson has signed a new deal until 2024 apparently. Another bit of good news.


1.) 26 Aug 2021 05:13:20
Confirmed news? That's fantastic!



18 Sep 2020 15:13:42
Talk of Hoever going Wolves for £10m.


{Ed025's Note - sometimes you just have to suck these things up cobra.. :)

1.) 18 Sep 2020 15:32:29
Dreadful Ed!

{Ed025's Note - i dont think you should have any attachments to him LRG, although i think he would have made a decent sweeper mate.. :)

2.) 18 Sep 2020 15:35:33
Think that’s good business on our part.

3.) 18 Sep 2020 15:39:48
Hes nowhere near big and strong enough to play centre back and he's well down the pecking order at right back. Its much better for the lad to move on and build his career where he may have a chance.

4.) 18 Sep 2020 15:39:48
Boy, that came out of the blue. Michael Edwards is running the transfer market with his magic wand. With Neco and Sepp VDB, it is going to be limited for Ki-Jana who will need a year or two on loan. Sorry to see him leave but Michael Edward needs water to turn it to wine. Something has to go if we were to bring in Ismaila Sarr.

5.) 18 Sep 2020 15:48:37
Ed, I'd rather brush that joke under the carpet mate 😂.

6.) 18 Sep 2020 16:23:16
That sucks.

{Ed025's Note - yeah but hopefully his form will pick up now thunderbird.. :)

7.) 18 Sep 2020 18:01:15
Ed25 I think you should stop before this thread Dysonds into madness.

{Ed025's Note - nice one BP..



11 Nov 2019 16:19:17
Talk of Liverpool being in talks with Bournemouth for a deal for Ryan Fraser in January, would be a decent backup.


1.) 11 Nov 2019 16:43:01
Many Bournemouth fans feel he's gone a bit stale this season after playing well last (most assists in league I think) however this could be due to him running down his contract and clearly looking for a 'better' move.

2.) 11 Nov 2019 16:58:51
Can’t be any truth in us after Fraser Ed’s?

{Ed002's Note - It makes little sense to me if true. His contract runs out in the summer and there is interest from elsewhere so a move for him now, given that Bournemouth have so far not agreed a new deal, miight see some sort of deal including Harry Wilson. Whilst he has not performed as well as expected this season the capability is in there somewhere. Right now I am on the train heading for Heathrow so checking is not so easy.}

3.) 11 Nov 2019 17:19:18
No worries Ed mate appreciate your reply anyway keep us informed please.

4.) 11 Nov 2019 18:20:08
He’s better than Shaq and Wilson and is more fitting to Klopps style of play.

5.) 11 Nov 2019 21:14:44
Oh baby I hear the blues are calling.

6.) 12 Nov 2019 09:48:57
I thought we only sell to Bournemouth and buy from Southampton?

7.) 14 Nov 2019 15:41:18
Check the lads assist rate out it’s pretty impressive and maybe that’s what interests Klopp.



04 Jan 2019 14:30:41
The rumour seems to be Solanke going Brighton on a permanent deal, best for both parties imo.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 14:49:53
Ed2 if your around has the solanke fee been sorted? I mean have we settled his compensation fee.

{Ed002's Note - Yes it is all done.}



05 Jul 2018 07:29:41
Been told by someone who works within the club that Shaqiri is coming and Klopp is going to stick with Karius as number 1 contrary to reports. Hardly over the moon with either really but the same source did seem to think Gotze was nailed on a couple of seasons back so I hope things change again.


1.) 05 Jul 2018 09:30:04
Let's see what happens. Shaqiri just doesn't seem like a klopp player.
Karius deserves some slack from our fans either way. YNWA should apply for karius too.

2.) 05 Jul 2018 09:45:33
If that’s true I think Shaqiri will eventually take Karius’s place 🤝.

3.) 05 Jul 2018 10:25:59
That's an upgrade Ron.

4.) 05 Jul 2018 12:05:54
Ed001 is 100% spot friggin on regarding Shaqiri. There is talent in the academy that should get a look before making a signing like this. I think it’s a waste of money. Not necessarily because I don’t think he is any good, but if we are just making signings for cover as some suggest what is the point of having an academy? If we do sign Shaqiri I will support him and hope that he does well but give the youngsters a proper chance.

5.) 05 Jul 2018 12:13:52
stone - this is nothing new with Shaqiri or even with Klopp. It’s the modern day game which demands quick, regular success.

If Klopp had won something then maybe he could take a risk with a youngster, but he’s under pressure to deliver this season and everyone moaned about how weak our bench was in the CL final.

{Ed001's Note - and it has improved by buying 2 first team players so that those that were in the first team will now be on the bench. Why waste money on players no one believes are good enough to make the first team stronger and are merely just there for 'cover'?}

6.) 05 Jul 2018 12:26:42
Agreed totally.
However, every time there was a rumour that we are buying first 11 material, the default response from an ed is either “unless Salah is leaving” or “if Mane were to leave”.

{Ed001's Note - no it isn't. Did anyone say anything of the kind when Fekir was close? You are mixing up your own ridiculous expectations with the truth. Some players would only be signed if Salah or Mane were to leave. Some would be bought to improve the team as it is.}

7.) 05 Jul 2018 12:45:47
Ey ed if klopp can screw shaqiri head on and he can make an impact in say 10/ 12, where we can also give Salah a rest then for the reported 12 million it's a bargain.

If however he just flops and we want to sell, were not going to lose anything major, as I've said before someone like West ham would probably pay 20/ 25 mil next year. Even he has just a handful of good games.

Got people saying why didn't they sign him now, well liverpool want him and there hardly going to compete with klopp or champions league now are they.

{Ed001's Note - if West Ham would pay that much, why don't they just sign him for 12 now? You are making no sense.}

8.) 05 Jul 2018 13:06:39
''Why waste money on players no one believes are good enough to make the first team stronger. ''

Because if they replace mane, he ain't going to sit on the bench. We don't have a world class midfield and they can be subs. we have world class attack that won't be subs. solanke ings Sturridge don't fit the mould and ain't good enough.

So improve your bench. Man city have an unbelievable bench. klopp is trying to address the issue.

{Ed001's Note - Man City built the bench by buying first team players, not players for the bench.}

9.) 05 Jul 2018 13:44:56
I get your point ron but if we are buying for “cover” that is partly what the academy is for. To buy a player to simply cover is a waste of money in my view. How many times have we read on here from so many asking why the youngsters aren’t given a chance? I hope they get a legitimate chance during the pre-season. Just my opinion.

10.) 05 Jul 2018 14:01:51
Remember on the 25th of May when nearly everyone was saying how good Karius had been and that they'd be happy for him to be first choice next season? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

11.) 05 Jul 2018 14:23:33
Ed I answered you question in my post.

They probably do want to sign him now but he's probably going to choose us for the champions league and were liverpool.

If however he doesn't work out I'm sure they would still be interested and the going rate for a good rw like him is about 20/ 25 million. Plus if he has a few good games but wants more game time than we can offer then maybe we sell him as a prize asset for like 30 mil.

{Ed001's Note - you haven't answered my question, you are just making guesses.}

12.) 05 Jul 2018 14:31:47
Totally on board with ed here. I would much prefer we either buy someone that would put our first teamers on the bench or give Harry Wilson the cover job than Shaqiri be brought in. But if he bought he will have my support. There is a player in there somewhere, and if anyone can get it out of him it’s Klopp.

13.) 05 Jul 2018 14:19:07
Poor guy I feel sorry for Karius. He was doing well up until the final and had shocker yes but that can happen to anyone. Look at De Gea for Spain (yet everyone still classed him as one of the worlds best.

I do think we should upgrade don’t get me wrong but if we can’t get the guy we want, we wait until we can. Karius is still a decent keeper and I think with our midfield improved significantly he should be called up less

I just hope to god he doesn’t read this site. What happened to YNWA? Embarrassed to be a Liverpool fan at times.

14.) 05 Jul 2018 14:53:04
Makes sense to spend 200m on neymar and put mane on bench. and when he leaves spend 300m on mbappe and put neymar on bench. or fingers crossed we have unearthed an entire squad of WC subs. as shown on many an fa/ efl cup game.

15.) 05 Jul 2018 15:10:35
Does any of our opinions or the Eds opinions matter, if Klopp wants him then he sees something, isn't that all there is to it. Klopp doesn't care if you think he's lazy or someone else thinks he has a bad attitude or if Ed thinks there's better in the academy or elsewhere, it's the managers choice. I'm all for opinion but don't be absolutely hammering a player because he's being linked with us. Mane had issues pre_Liverpool, Keita has had his fair share too, let's see what happens and who knows, he might win golden boot out of nowhere next season.

16.) 05 Jul 2018 15:25:36
Considering the other options bandied about it for goalkeeper I’d far rather stick with Karius and make Ward number 2, sell Mignolet and bring in an experience third choice. Besides which, Karius is a young lad and will learn from that night in Kiev.

17.) 05 Jul 2018 16:05:37
Who is putting mane, Salah or b9bby on the bench? Answer me that.

Second ed. There isn't a single premier league team who want shaqiri? Who have struggled offering what we can?

{Ed001's Note - he has been touted around everyone, that is all I know.}

18.) 05 Jul 2018 16:50:07
Far enough ed. I wasn't arguing with you but I just don't think there is much to stress out with this transfer. We will make pleanty and release loads of wages once the likes of sturdier have been offloaded.

Secondly no matter how good you are you always need something off the bench and signing smartly isn't always the worst idea. I personally think fergie would of signed him, lime he did solskajer, chicharito, Larson etc. He knew having some good back up on the bench was a smart move but there isn't always better than what you have out there. Which in this case unless it was Messi or Ronaldo I think our front 3 are irreplaceable. Maybe apart from mane but only slightly.

{Ed001's Note - none of those players were bought for the bench, they were all seen as players with the potential to be first choice. Fergie was never afraid to leave a gap in the squad for youth players.}

19.) 05 Jul 2018 17:09:03
Isn't it constantly mentioned that it is a squad game now, we are not signing him for the bench we are signing him for the squad. We need squad players who are good enough to play premier league games when we are resting the likes of Salah for CL games. Yes we need spaces for kids to get game time and develop but we also need experience to be able to stand a chance in those games.

20.) 05 Jul 2018 17:19:42
and I think shaqiri is more than good enough for the bench but has the talent that if klopp can screw his bloody head on and he thrives in our attacking play could become a first team player.

I just think your way out with this one. He is a good player. Solid. If klopp makes it click. Well he might just supirse a lot of us.

Like Henderson, Chamberlain, Salah, mane, Robertson, Trent, Loren, Milner. So much negativity surrounded all of those players. Deemed wastes of money or not good enough for liverpool. They where all first team starters in the cl campaign and resulting final last year.

Yes we can't label every llayer we sign with klopps magic wand but we can't just discount how good he has proven to be with players who where deemed not good enough!

21.) 05 Jul 2018 18:08:34
its all a moot point if the karius rumour is true. we won't win anything unless we buy a quality keeper.

22.) 05 Jul 2018 19:31:12
StevieJesus we’re not gong to get Oblak and there really isn’t much point shopping in the reject pile for the likes of Navas or Cillessen as they’re not quality at all. So we should give Karius our support.

23.) 05 Jul 2018 19:37:48
I agree FMS. Well said mate.

24.) 06 Jul 2018 03:41:23
The underlying assumption to this raging debate seems to be that we are buying Shaquiri for "cover".

What is the basis for this assumption?

25.) 06 Jul 2018 07:44:23
That he's not good enough to displace any of our current front 3. Not many are, to be fair.

26.) 06 Jul 2018 08:47:28
Defo strongly agree with Ed about buying players for the first 11 and therefore strengthening the bench with proven first 11 players from last years. Despite being unlucky with injuries at the end of last season we lacked 2-3 players who can come on and make an impact.

Dybala for me would fit the profile and is an excellent player. More mobile than Fekir and I believe fits better with the now dynamic midfield we have to match our front 3. The system can be tweaked for different games giving
Us a plan B and allowing us to compete in all comps.

Still think we need a keeper but in Klopp I trust.

27.) 06 Jul 2018 10:38:57
"Man City built the bench by buying first team players, not players for the bench."
And the same with Fergie's United. The way to build a strong squad is buying players who can be starters and take someone's place, then it's up to the player who gets dropped to the bench to improve and fight for the place back.

Buying backup players gets you nowhere, just look at Chelsea last season for the perfect example. Deserved champions one season and a big league flop the next. They signed Morata, Bakayoko, Drinkwater, Rudiger, Zappacosta, Emerson, Caballero, Giroud and even Ross flippin Barkley for a total of almost a quarter of a billion pounds and NONE of them improved the first team.

So yes it would be VERY difficult to improve on our starting forwards, so I'd prefer if we go for a younger player on lower wages who9 can play on but wings and has more potential to learn and improve, like Moses Simon for example.

It seems the rumours for Daka are gathering pace, would be pretty happy with that signing.


1.) 31 May 2021 21:05:41
Just rumours it seems Cobra, nothing new here as Ed’s has explained mate.

2.) 31 May 2021 22:08:36
We need to start selling.

3.) 31 May 2021 23:05:56
We cannot afford Konate, Raphina and Daka in one window, not unless either Salah or Mane going.

4.) 01 Jun 2021 06:17:09
Im sure we could if we really wanted to. always somehow manage to pull a rabbit out the hat. As much knowledge as the eds have there is always a surprise that people didn't know about, including the eds!

5.) 01 Jun 2021 08:03:23
This time last season we were saying we couldn’t afford Thiago and that deal wouldn’t happen. Then Thiago arrived with a 40 mill Jota (regardless how you pay 40 mill is still 40 mill) . That’s the beauty of the game no one knows what will happen 100% of the time.

6.) 01 Jun 2021 09:06:13
Just rumors for now, IMO. We shall see.



21 Apr 2021 07:29:14
Are their many people around with billions to spend on a football club that won't want to maximise its earning power in a similar way to what FSG have just tried to do? Would this not put off potential owners?
I believe the Glazers and Utd is still the record football club purchase and Fenway and Liverpool also in the top 3 at was it roughly $300m? and the report came out last week valuing us at $4.1bn?
I worry we are going to end in with a situation like the Glazers at Utd and they just start bleeding the club dry financially and get more and more loans out against the club and also scale back squad and infrastructure investment. Or do you think there is a chance they'll just take a good profit and run?


1.) 21 Apr 2021 08:52:20
OP, I don't think that will happen. The Glazers have NO credit in the bank judging by some Utd fans I check up on via SM and compared to FSG, I think FSG had some, not a lot. Now with the ESL fiasco, whatever credit they had is near gone now and that is of their own doing.

How do they pick up the pieces? I have no idea but I don't think they are going to be bleeding money out of the club cos they would have done that already during the C.V.. They haven't and this is not the time for them to even think of doing that anytime soon.

{Ed077's Note - the Glazers have never had any credit in the bank with the Man Utd supporters right from get go. The only credit in the bank they have is the literal credit/debt they put 5he club under when acquiring MUFC.



01 Feb 2021 12:53:26
Not sure about this Kabak signing, I think spitting at someone is the lowest of the low, the way it was done was terrible too, at a player lay on the ground.
You've got to trust Klopps and the scouts judgement and the fact it's an initial loan they have time to asses his attitude at least.


1.) 01 Feb 2021 13:17:42
Well he better get his attitude straight and behave like a human being if he is to play for LFC. The club has had enough damage done to its reputation over the last 10 years and we don't need a spitter making it worse.
Kabak needs to get his head down, do and learn what the coaches instruct him to do and he should be fine.
Talented player but that spitting thing just does not sit right with me.

2.) 01 Feb 2021 13:18:48
We all make mistakes mate, its digusting YES but if he is a liverpool player let's get behind him and if he doesn't learn by mistakes then we judge .

3.) 01 Feb 2021 13:32:48
You might also note what the player himself had to say about the spitting incident in his apology.

Fingers crossed he comes in and does a great job, same with Davies. If it frees up two fantastic midfield players then all the better. Trust Jurgen and the scouts, they’ve had a good record lately.

4.) 01 Feb 2021 14:19:42
Two spitters, Diouf and Carragher. A biter, Suarez. Have we not learnt our lesson? I know Kabak shouldn’t be damned for one mistake but the deserved hate and vitriol following the above mistakes indicates to me that we should be steering clear.

5.) 01 Feb 2021 15:38:47
StEtienneAman, those people esp. Diouf and Suarez were repeat offenders who blew every chance they were given to redeem themselves. Carra is held to a much higher standard cos he is a public figure and older and supposedly wiser. No excuses for either of these lot, IMO.

Kabak did something despicable and terrible and should be punished for it, for sure. What we cannot do is to use this act to define him as a person or footballer. He should be afforded the same chances that the above lot got to redeem himself. It's only fair, right?



01 Feb 2021 09:16:58
After an initial negative response it seems that most are optimistic with the Davies signing. I think a lot of the negativity has come from the fact he plays for a lesser known championship club and the cost is only £2m (have seen it reported at less) .
As someone from Preston I watch them a fair bit and I would say he's probably their best player, I think without C.V. rearing it's head he would have joined someone last summer for £10m plus but for obvious reasons clubs decided against it and now he's ran his contract down and this opportunity has come.
Do I think he will cement a starting place long term? Probably not as it's a massive step up but if you look at the premier league centre halves I bet half have played in the football league so it's a tried and tested path into the premier league, just they normally only make the step to the 'top sides' via another prem club. This signing is very similar to the move Spurs made for Rodon, just Davies is a couple of years older but has considerable more experience.
For me It's a no risk signing, almost certainly from a financial point of view anyway, even if it doesn't work out too well I think we'd sell him at a profit in the summer. The only worry is he could be overawed and possibly make errors leading to a goal/ goals and a loss but the same can be said for Williams and Phillips.




12 Nov 2020 21:27:59
I have seen something linking us with Daryl Janmaat, would be a bit of a kick in the teeth for Neco Williams if true.


1.) 12 Nov 2020 22:07:18
Neco should be moved into midfield to be honest, RB spot is just an introduction into the first team and to gain EPL experience.

2.) 12 Nov 2020 22:11:01
I don't see Klopp doing it, honestly. Unless Neco has a really bad time over the next 2-3 games. And even then, I see Klopp going with Milner (for the whole season if need be) .

3.) 13 Nov 2020 13:28:18
Janmaat? Someone is teasing you, OP. No way, Klopp is going to go anywhere near him or any other FA, IMO. Klopp has solution in-house and should use them esp. at RB where Neco and Milner can come in and do a job. Janmaat? Now, that was funny.

Mickey- Mbappe is one of the best players in the world and worth being paid that way, why would he play for us on the cheap? Aside from being fans of clubs I don’t see why anyone would want to play for a team other than success and money, it’s the way it is and the majority of the time the clubs paying the most money are the most successful.
If Real are willing to pay 800k a week and we can offer say 300k he’s not going to come and play for us and that’s not being greedy on his part.

I agree regarding Jota, since his return from injury I think his overall play hasn’t been the best but he’s made up for that with a decent goal return, now the goals have dried up I do worry.
Before he got injured I thought we had a long term replacement for one of the front 3 but now I’m not so sure, hopefully it’s just a blip and his goals return and general play improve.

I agree with the OP but I think both have adapted their game especially Salah who is so good in the box and a clever finisher.
There was a time when if both were in open space one on one with a defender you would put your house on them getting past, that’s now not the case imo.

I thought it was great to come out and say that, certainly for Struijk that’s for sure.
I don’t think many are having a go at the ref, if it wasn’t for what happened to Elliot he didn’t look like he was going to blow for a foul anyway let alone give a red card.
Too many times players have been vilified for challenges that have unfortunately ended up injuring someone badly. Ryan Shawcross miss times a tackle against Ramsey and both Arsenal fans, the club and Ramsey made Shawcross out to be some sort of monster.
