With Origi doubtful for tomorrow's game versus Napoli due to the ankle injury he sustained on Saturday, is it likely that Rhian Brewster will make the bench?

Of course he could just stick with experienced players (e. g. Lallana or Ox to play wide) but it would leave us without a striker on the bench.


1.) 16 Sep 2019 16:25:50
I'd give Brewster a go for 20-30mins - if he's got such a big future then these types of games would be fantastic experience, especially if we've manage to grab a good lead in the game!

2.) 16 Sep 2019 19:07:28
Love your optimism, Johnny. Wish I shared it as they battered us last year. One of the most difficult places to go, for players and supporters.

3.) 16 Sep 2019 19:33:31
Rome mate, we got battered by every team away in the group stages last season, can’t get any worse lol.

Napoli look terrible at the back this season, to which we really should be able to exploit.

4.) 16 Sep 2019 21:18:00
We are better than we were 12 months ago. If at all possible get early points and reduce those pressure games at the end.

Agree with your comment re Robbo. Milner needs game time as well.

5.) 17 Sep 2019 01:29:19
> We are better than we were 12 months ago
Not sure about that we started last season very strong . As Drogie pointed out Napoli defence very suspect but they have been scoring loads of goals .
should be an existing game.

6.) 17 Sep 2019 02:26:20
Mane or Salah are also both capable of playing striker, I’d rather see Shaqiri or Ox used as subs for this game, and then ease Brewster into MK Dons. It’s a lot to ask for him to step into a Napoli away match, even if only a sub.

Hope Robbo is OK but if not I agree 100% should be Milner.

7.) 16 Sep 2019 18:01:38
He definitely gets that slot on the bench for me, if he doesn't then what was the point of signing him to a new deal. He is third choice striker and origi is injured, give him his chance.

8.) 16 Sep 2019 22:30:48
Everyone is panicking and chewing their fingernails again. We are Champions of Europe. We're altogether a different animal this year, more cohesive and certainly far more confident. Massive psychological difference when you're the champion of a tournament you're in, versus playing when you have lost the same tournament (and lost badly) the previous year.

9.) 17 Sep 2019 14:39:29
It's very possible that we would loose today . and no it won't be the end of the world . there will still be more than enough games to top the group.



24 May 2019 16:55:27
I've just seen an article linking us with Ryan Fraser. I know a few other big clubs have been monitoring him (Arsenal, Chelsea, Man U, Everton) .

Are we now in the running for him? Also, wasn't he this season highest chance creator? (And yes, I'm aware that it's quantity and not quality of chances) .

I was just wondering if anyone else knew anything about this.


1.) 24 May 2019 17:50:09
These rumours been going around for a few days. Yes I think after Hazard was top assists. I have never really watched him much and think there are better options out there.

Arsenal favourites to sign him.

2.) 24 May 2019 17:51:20
I don't think we have any serious interest in him, more effective as a winger then a CAM. I wouldn't be surprised to see Arsenal or Spurs make a move, though probably as a second choice or if their budget is stretched thin from picking up a couple players.

Ed002 said he hadn't heard anything about a Liverpool offer but mentioned him as a possible target on the arsenal page and said "Ryan Fraser (LW) has the advantage of being home grown".

3.) 24 May 2019 18:00:27
I’m not sure on the stat, but if he created a chance, I think it’s like created a shot, so I think that denotes quality. Maybe with a more clinical striker he would have got more assists. Again, it’s a stat that looks good, but means very little.

I think mane got three assists this year, and 22 goals. That would suggest he is selfish. but he’s far from it.

4.) 24 May 2019 18:48:58
We could do a lot worse imo, looked good this season when I watched him.

5.) 24 May 2019 18:48:58
Thanks for your replies, guys.

He certainly doesn't sound like the worst player we could be linked with. And if he's a left sided winger he'd offer a good rotation option considering that Mane played on the right before we signed Salah.

I guess it's just a "wait and see".

6.) 24 May 2019 18:58:11
He had a fantastic season, always remember him coming on against us and turning the game in their favour when they beat us 4-3!

Don't know if he has the quality we need but seems a Klopp type of player with pace to burn and good work ethic.

7.) 24 May 2019 22:23:10
Bit of a Liverpool fan as well by all accounts.

8.) 25 May 2019 01:23:10
I'd be happy to get Fraser he's a pest and would buy into the work rate that Jurgen demands also played with Robertson at international level . He's certainly got something about him on the pitch and doesn't seem to have a massive ego.

9.) 25 May 2019 06:01:34
Can anyone name a player we've been linked with who isn't a 'Liverpool fan'?

{Ed025's Note - gareth bale..

10.) 25 May 2019 09:10:59
Reminds me of the transfer of Charlie Adam. I'd look else where.

11.) 25 May 2019 11:09:23
magico. Because he's Scottish?

He's nothing like Charlie Adam in any way apart from that.

12.) 25 May 2019 13:54:42
About the same level if you ask me. hardly stands out in an average team. so in my opinion he isn't good enough. Each to their own.

13.) 25 May 2019 16:17:30
Descent player.

14.) 25 May 2019 21:08:56
Could be a all Scottish left side with and robbo and Fraser, be excellent edition to our squad at a reasonable price.

15.) 26 May 2019 04:46:12
I wouldn't mind him. He'd be like Robbo, Milner and Hendo when it comes to work rate and not being a flashy player but getting the job done.

If the price is right then why not :)

16.) 26 May 2019 12:52:52
Ryan frazior has been a phenomenon for Bournemouth this season. He deserves a move to a big club. I think he would suit our style well but id expect a higher profile attacking mid if we sign one. Arsenal bound sounds aboit right.



23 May 2019 09:09:13
Good Morning All.

The Echo are reporting that we're close to signing 16 year old Polish Goalkeeper, Jakub Ojrzynski from Legia Warsaw for £200,000.

I know it's no big name or even anywhere near the first team, but a rumour is a rumour, right?

If true, he must be deemed pretty good considering that our current academy goalies are already at a decent standard.


1.) 23 May 2019 10:22:02
Although much is expected of him, he's being bought to join the under 18s as competition to Jaros.

2.) 23 May 2019 14:21:58
I uh don't think he will get q good opportunity with us unless Alisson leaves. he is 26 now he will play till 34 maybe at really high level by that time the kid will have left us and become 26 year so i wouldn't read much into it. and ed02 has de ligt deal hit a snag? sorry if im being a bother. i understand he won't end up with us. i hope he ends up at Barcelona or madrid or psg nd not in england.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained the deal with de Ligt.}

3.) 23 May 2019 14:54:08
Think we need to De Ligt that question livebird, we all know that he is not coming Klopp isn’t interested.

Re goalkeepers, we don’t know what will happen in 5 years time, Allison may want to move somewhere else, it’s all about planning for the future.

4.) 23 May 2019 15:26:11
I like what you did there southern😂, that pun was DELigtful.

5.) 24 May 2019 09:37:23
You guys have a DeLigtable sense of humour.



27 Mar 2019 20:45:47
The first time I've heard of this linked player.

I've just read that we're interested in bringing in Norwich defender Ben Godfrey for £10m.

Anyone know anything about him or seen him play?




21 Feb 2019 17:31:18
Liverpool are monitoring midfielder Khéphren Thuram (Lillian Thuram's son) at Monaco. He hasn't signed a pro contract yet with Monaco.

Has anyone seen anything of him, or know how highly he is rated? He's a France U21 international, but that's all I know.


1.) 21 Feb 2019 18:12:34
* France U18.

He is just a young prospect who's fathers name is causing some media attention.

from what i have heard he is not considered a top talent!

2.) 21 Feb 2019 18:43:41
Kinda hard to judge a 17 year old unless they're ridiculously talented for their age and already playing senior footie at a decent level.

3.) 21 Feb 2019 21:22:55
Thuram or not Thuram, that is the question 🧐.

4.) 23 Feb 2019 14:21:18
👀 . You're slipping Zed.

5 points clear after 5 games. Amazing.

Is anyone else joining the Teemu Pukki and Tim Krul fan club?


1.) 14 Sep 2019 19:56:58
I expected them to give them a game but didn’t think they’d get a result nevermind win.

Hopefully gives us a reminder not to take anyone for granted and maybe the blueprint on how to beat city.

We are only 5 games in but it would be rude not to enjoy our position. 100% and the only unbeaten side left, after our preseason and players being at the AFCON it’s a really impressive start, we go again!

2.) 14 Sep 2019 20:08:37
I told my man city mate on Thursday that Norwich would get at least a point today. Stones and otamendi are far from a title winning defensive partnership.

3.) 14 Sep 2019 20:10:12
Excellent point of view WYred great result for us today but still 33 games left to play enjoy the moment but let's not get carried away ed666 is going to be so excited on podcast Monday what songs he going to start with this week.

4.) 15 Sep 2019 08:05:19
I wish more teams would take it to city. I still rekon you have a better chance taking points off them by having a go in a high scorer than ya do tryna keep it tight and sneak the odd counter attack goal.

5.) 15 Sep 2019 10:44:02
Might be a bit Krul, but yeah Epic, I'm team Pukki all the way lol.



01 Sep 2019 21:11:00
No summary for 1st of September, Tris? I thought it would be hotting up with the Euro transfer window tomorrow.


{Ed001's Note - I did one. It just didn't autolink, apologies. Review of the Day 1st September

It is because another article was loaded up after it was done ready, as I decided to do it in the evening so I could have a lie in.}

1.) 01 Sep 2019 21:27:48
Thanks mate. Giving it a read now :)

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate, sorry it didn't link. If you don't see a link you can just check on to see if it is there.}

2.) 01 Sep 2019 21:34:57
Diego Laxalt gone to Torino on loan? Isn't he the guy that we had serious interest in? If they were willing to let him go on loan, surely we could have got him for a snip.

{Ed001's Note - I know, surprising move.}

3.) 02 Sep 2019 07:47:47
Do you think that's because our window shuts early they held out for a better deal and one didn't materialise or he didn't want to compete for a place?



01 Sep 2019 15:18:00
On a positive note, at least no-one invaded the pitch yesterday.

It was getting silly. Sooner or later someone's going to do it at Old Trafford and get Man of the Match.


1.) 01 Sep 2019 16:43:53
Kenny Dalglish decides to come out of retirement and play for Liverpool, he goes into the changing room to find all his team mates looking a bit glum.
"What's up? " He asks.
"Well, we're having trouble getting motivated for this game. We know it's important but it's only Man U. They're crap and we can't be bothered".
Kenny looks at them and says "Well I know I'm a bit fat and old, but I reckon I can beat them by myself, you lads go down the pub. "
So Kenny goes out to play Man U by himself and the rest of the Liverpool team go off for a few beers. After a few pints they wonder how the game is going, so they get the landlord to put the TV on. A big cheer goes up as the screen shows
"Liverpool 1 (Dalglish 10 minutes) – Man U 0
He is beating Man U all by himself! Anyway, a few more beers later and the game is forgotten until someone remembers "It must be full time now, let's see how he got on" They put the TV on.
"Result from Anfield: Liverpool 1 (Dalglish 10 minutes) – Man U 1 (Sanchez 89 minutes)
They can't believe it, he has single handed got a draw against Man U! They rush back to the Stadium to congratulate him. They find him in the dressing room, still in his gear, sat with his head in his hands.
He refuses to look at them. "I've let you down I've let you down"
"Don't be stupid Kenny, you got a draw against Man U all by yourself. And they only scored at the very very end! "
Kenny says "No, No, I have, I've let you down! . I got sent off after 12 minutes! "😂😂😂😂😂.

How strange, a mean city fan mate of mine text me that joke yesterday, but it was Colin Bell instead of the king!

3.) 01 Sep 2019 21:30:41
Thats Quality.



17 Aug 2019 14:01:30
Adrian fit to play today.




16 Aug 2019 22:14:04
Congrats to Marko Grujic for scoring against Bayern Munich AWAY and helping earn Berlin a point against them. Never saw that coming.


1.) 16 Aug 2019 23:45:21
A very good first half from Grujic, but he struggled to keep up with the speed of the game in the second half and conceded the penalty leading to Bayern’s equalizer. A good learning experience for him.

2.) 17 Aug 2019 09:55:24
Grujic is very talented, IMO. He just has to be able to grow and do all the other stuff that professional football at the highest levels require cos clearly, talent alone is NOT going to cut it.

3.) 17 Aug 2019 10:38:19
Hes never going to make it at Liverpool and we all know it but good luck to the lad.

There's also a very likely chance that it will be a talent that emerges this season.

At the end of the day, who had heard of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luka Jovic, Joao Felix, Jadon Sancho, Rodrygo and Nicolas Pepe 12 months ago?

Ed025. Who has the same charisma? Should we appoint Barry Fry?

I'm not pioneering for Gerrard to be Liverpool manager whatsoever. I'm just saying that if he wants to, that's the blueprint he needs to follow. And I said in my last post, three years is an awfully short time for him to turn into the perfect Klopp replacement.

Actually, if I had anything to do with it (which I don't), I'd take a completely different approach to when Liverpool wouldn't let Dalglish have a sabbatical and let Linders be caretaker manager for a year and Klopp can come back refreshed. But I guess that's an ideal world and who says that his style will even work in 4 years time?


{Ed025's Note - sam allardyce and david moyes are looking for new clubs epic, never say never they say mate.. :)

I really don't understand all of the negativity about Lovren. I know he's had a few bad games but he's a very good defender.

If we get an injury or two and he gets into the team, I'd put money on him doing a Matip and keeping his place (injuries permitting, of course) .

When he gets his chance, he knows what he needs to do to keep his place. He's seen it with his own eyes.


{Ed025's Note - hmmmm..

Ed025, I agree that for Stevie it's a short amount of time, but I think that what I'm saying is correct that if he ever wants to be Liverpool manager, he should adopt Liverpool's playing style with his own teams and show that he can be successful doing so.

I think it's quite clear that when Klopp is replaced, it will be with a manager that adopts the same style. If that's Gerrard, I don't know, but the football director will want to keep the style the same, that's for sure. What I was really getting at is IF he wants to be Liverpool manager one day, that's what he should be working towards.

I really have no preference to who the replacement is. I just have a good idea that that's what the director of football will be looking for. If Gerrard isn't doing that with his own teams, he won't be in contention.


{Ed025's Note - hes miles of even being considered as an option epic, good players dont always make good managers mate as has been said on here many times, also he has the charisma of a coconut which means hes hardly likely to live up to klopps man management skills..

You can't just brand all Italian cities to be like Napoli.

I've been to Napoli and it's absolute mayhem, even when there's no football game on. All of the cars have dents in them; if there's three lanes at a red traffic light, three cars line up and then two more cars try to squeeze into the gaps. Even though everyone is feisty as hell, there is no police presence. It's an absolutely crazy place.

I was there for 3 days and left in complete shock of what I witnessed. Yes, there was a buzz to it, but I could see why it is what it is and the closest Italian city to Sicily and must have so much Mafia influence in it.

Greenflash, yes TAA is young and inexperienced in the right back position, as it isn't even his natural position. He is played there for his creativity and relative nous in defence, but I'll stress again, it's not his position, and he has orders to march forward whenever possible, making him vulnerable. The whole reason that we play him there is that he assists in so many attacks.

Why are you all feeding Walter the scraps that he wants? Surely after this weekend (if he even watched the game) must be ridiculously stupid if he can't see what quality Bobby brings.

Even someone who has never watched a game of football in their life could watch that game and come to the conclusion that he's a class act.

Stop feeding him.

Haha Para-red.

I'd like him to stay for 20 years or more, but some things are more important than football. Not many, but some.

I, like many others, would be happy for him to take a sabbatical and return a year later. As long as we don't get relegated while he's having a break, haha.

Exactly Salah. I for one have never said that he wasn't good enough. I just always thought that initially he would be better playing behind another striker.

I am of course both wrong and right at the same time with that theory. He's best with his starting position as the number nine to draw defenders out of position, but he is kind of playing behind a striker; well two of them actually, when he drops deep. It's just that the strikers are running in from wide positions rather than being typical central strikers.

I've just read that back and I'm finding it hard to understand myself, but hopefully you can see what I'm trying to say.
