Is Keita injured again or is he just not getting in the squad. If he’s not injured then is that the writing on the wall for him as Shaq and Lallana are being ed ahead of him in the squad and both them are rumoured to be on the way out


1.) 28 Nov 2019 20:43:55
He be gone in the summer.

2.) 29 Nov 2019 01:00:25
I've heard illness kept him out this week and he's previously been struggling with shaking off recent injuries, . Of course these are often excuses used to detract from other issues but let's not write him off yet as we've seen many examples of players turning things around. Fabinho, OX, matip, Origi, Henderson all spent periods where our fan base gave absolutely no support or backing of them having an LFC future.

Keita is still only in his early 20s and has proved he has great talent.

Before his injury vs Barcelona he had flourished with confidence for 5 or 6 games as a regular starter scoring 3 goals and a couple of assists. He was rushed back and clearly unfit for international duty in the summer and his return to full fitness seems very frustrating but he's still young, has huge potential, on a long contract and a manager who will be the perfect judge of his worth to this team.

Unless he's a bad egg personality wise let's not give up on him just yet.

3.) 29 Nov 2019 03:36:03
He's ill I believe.

4.) 29 Nov 2019 04:08:20
He is ill.

5.) 29 Nov 2019 15:33:14
Guess what? ill is not good enough I would rather curtis Jones was in the squad, keita is a fraud who performs when he thinks is suitable, we need warriors and he is a tranny sorry its harsh but he is not contributing nowhere near enough .

6.) 29 Nov 2019 17:48:20
Literally made a profile to just ask for what you base the above opinion on hailstones? I understand if there were some substances involved.

7.) 29 Nov 2019 21:16:44
On the evidence provided from his time at the club, also info the Ed's have shared about him, its harsh but wat has he contributed and has he showed fight an desire on the pitch no he hasn't . I want too be wrong big time as I love the player we were signing but that player has evaporated into an average joe, you only have too look at Fabihno too know wat i am on about . Was not trusted at first went away got his game together an BINGO! same with Robertson.

8.) 30 Nov 2019 09:40:39
He’s shown glimpses and due to injury and the form of others hasn’t really been given an extended run to show what he can do. What he’s shown in training and as a professional off the pitch is another question.

9.) 01 Dec 2019 10:42:23
Interested to what you mean by "Tranny" Hailstones? I can't really take any criticism of a player if you're going for a pretty transphobic insult.

In terms of what you're saying about Fabinho / Robertson, the difference for them is that they were injury free for a sustained period so they could be integrated into the team, while for whatever reason Keita was picking up niggly injuries.

Sure I get he has been disappointing, but to call him a "Tranny" is pretty childish and insulting to be honest.



05 Apr 2019 13:11:20
Is there any rumour on Keita. Is he still very much in Klopps plans for next season and is this season just being written off as a bedding in period? I’m by no means suggesting that we get rid as I really want this guy to succeed and he was probably the player I was most looking forward to seeing this season. This is simply a query as you know what the rumour mill is like suggesting Klopp might look to sell back to Germany with Bayern / Dortmund linked.


1.) 05 Apr 2019 13:29:17
Ed001 answered a similar question below.

2.) 05 Apr 2019 22:35:40
Scored tonight. classic post.

3.) 06 Apr 2019 00:34:03
There is a rumour that Keita scored against Southampton.

4.) 06 Apr 2019 03:43:16
Please post on every match talking about the rumour departure of Naby.
We need you jk23.

5.) 06 Apr 2019 07:08:17
Well Naby did score today so hopefully this is the trigger he needs to finally kickstart his LFC career. He deserves one more season before we start thinking about possible destinations for him.



15 Aug 2018 15:56:12
Mignolet’s agent in talks with Napoli apparently. If he does go then all the best to him.


{Ed002's Note - Napoli want one of David Ospina or Simon Mignolet. Besiktas want one of Loris Karius, Ospina or Mignolet. Mignolet was priced out of a move to Fenerbahce. If Liverpool were to drop their demands for a loan fee for Karius, I suspect something could be done.}

1.) 15 Aug 2018 17:17:08
Currently in talks with Arsenal fro Ospina so that option looks dead in water. I think we will be stuck with him until at least January now.

2.) 15 Aug 2018 17:17:08
Cheers Ed002. A fountain of knowledge as per usual.

3.) 15 Aug 2018 17:52:35
Spot on Ed as usual with your info. You explained both Karius and Mignolet could well leave in August. I have to say though I thought Karius would stay. Kids not ready to be back up imo.

{Ed002's Note - He should have moved at the first opportunity. Staying at the club puts him in an untenable situation but I would not put it beyond Klopp to force him to stay.}

4.) 15 Aug 2018 18:51:54
He does want to leave then Ed? Was at Anfield on sunday and he seemed happy enough in the warm up, even signed a few programmes. Shame really.

{Ed002's Note - His position is completely untenable.}

5.) 15 Aug 2018 19:37:45
Do you mean untenable within the club? Certainly the fans would be happy for him to stay as a number 2.

{Ed002's Note - You must have a very short memory.}

6.) 15 Aug 2018 20:33:42
While there are some cretins, I think the ovation he received on his Anfield return speaks volumes to how the real fans feel about him.

7.) 15 Aug 2018 20:53:43
Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. At this stage I’d be happy for Karius to go and prove himself elsewhere and Migs to stay as reserve. 👍🏻.

8.) 15 Aug 2018 21:22:47
Saying ‘He should have moved at the first opportunity’ implies that he has had a chance to move and didn’t take it. Therefore I hardly think we can blame Klopp if he is still at Liverpool when the window closes.

{Ed002's Note - I am sure Klopp is not responsible for anything at all.}

9.) 15 Aug 2018 22:54:59
Actually I think it is fair to blame Klopp for the goalkeeper situation at the club, it has been a shambles for some time. Mignolet and Karius were told they were no1 keeper, then Ward has just wasted a whole year out of his career when it was obvious he needed to go back out on loan for his sake.
Ed02 is right, Karius position is untenable, the vile abuse he and his family has received is despicable. Any mistake Karius made this season would have been magnified and the pressure he would have felt at away grounds would have been too great.
However i do not understand why Liverpool put crazy prices on players they clearly do not want, and put off any potential suitors, surely a more reasonable price to move the goalkeepers on would be beneficial to everybody in the long run.

10.) 17 Aug 2018 10:04:49
*”Karius recieves abuse from some cretins; let’s blame Klopp it must be his fault”

Actually no, it’s the fault of a few mindless persons why Karius will struggle to hold down a role with the club.

11.) 17 Aug 2018 22:09:32
I never said it was Klopps fault for the abuse Karius received, as you rightly say that was down to the cretins. I think he handled the Danny Ward situation poorly. How was Ward going to get game time over Karius and Mignolet, the whole season was wasted for him.
Klopp is doing a brilliant job and bought so well this season, but we are allowed to occasionally criticize him, the goalkeeper situation definitely could have been handled better.

17 Feb 2020 09:51:05
I think a special mention has to go out to James Milner. When he signed for us in 2015 a lot of football fans and pundits questioned his decision. He was leaving a premier league winning team and one that was tipped to get CL glory in the future to come to us after we had just finished 6th.

Fast forward 5 years and he has got a CL & world club medal the City players and club he left behind still haven't got and he's surely weeks away from getting another Premier league winners medal. He chose to move for playing time and not glory and his decision has paid dividends.

It also makes me think he will become 1 of an exclusive club to win the Premier league title with 2 different clubs. The only 2 that come to mind recently are Kante & Mahrez. Eds & posters can you think of any other players that have won it with 2 clubs?


1.) 17 Feb 2020 10:36:25
Just hope we can get at least one more full season out of him. Top fella and model pro.

{Ed002's Note - He has just signed a new contract.}

2.) 17 Feb 2020 10:48:10
did van persie win with Arsenal and Utd?

{Ed002's Note - Not with Arsenal. But Robert Huth has three PL medals for two clubs.}

3.) 17 Feb 2020 11:10:24
Ashley Cole. Arsenal and Chelsea.

4.) 17 Feb 2020 11:38:08
Milner is a legend. Everything about the guy on and off the field oozes class. Love him.

I've been thinking for ages that this guy is tailor made for Management.

5.) 17 Feb 2020 12:44:05
I think Kolo Toure and Henning Berg have won 2 titles with different teams.

6.) 17 Feb 2020 13:18:15
Did Eric Cantona do it for Leeds and utd? Bit of z guess, Leeds were class then. Got me thinking of david batty. Didn't do it for Newcastle did he?
Ashley Cole with Chelsea and arsena.

Very nearly benyoun

What about zasri to cty.

7.) 17 Feb 2020 13:37:35
Did Owen Hargreaves get one with Man City?

8.) 17 Feb 2020 13:39:22
Some great answers. Struggling to come up with fresh ones.

I'd hazard a guess at Sturridge (Chelsea/ City), Drinkwater (Leicester/ Chelsea), Fabregas (Arsenal/ Chelsea), Anelka (Arsenal/ Chelsea), and Tevez (Man Utd/ City) .

{Ed002's Note - The last two are correct.}

9.) 17 Feb 2020 14:36:07
Gael Clichy (Arsenal/ Man City)
Danny Simpson (Utd/ Leicester)
Riyad Mahrez (Man City/ Leicester)
Ngolo Kante (Leicester/ Chelsea)
Mark Schwarzer (Chelsea/ Leicester)
KDB (Chelsea/ Man City)

10.) 17 Feb 2020 15:31:36
Henning Berg? Blackburn and United.

11.) 17 Feb 2020 15:46:24
Awesome lads some great answers in there. There's quite a few passengers in there who contributed very little to Title wins at 1 of their clubs or both in Schwarzers case.

12.) 17 Feb 2020 20:37:23
Isn’t Anelka another.

13.) 17 Feb 2020 20:39:01
Did Salah win it with Chelsea or what? He would join Milner also.

14.) 17 Feb 2020 20:59:45

15.) 17 Feb 2020 22:16:33
Seems like Milner been with us lot more than 2015.

16.) 18 Feb 2020 08:39:52
Kolo Toure very nearly became the first to win it with 3 different clubs after we narrowly missed out in 2014.

17.) 18 Feb 2020 13:36:22
With some of those more obscure answers, do you still have to have a certain amount of appearances for the title winning club to be classed as a premier league winner? Might throw a few of those into doubt?
I only ask as when we sold Fowler and were challenging for the title that year, I remember being told Fowler would get a winners medal as he had made 10 appearances for us before we sold him. don't know if this rule is still around.



05 Jan 2020 22:11:33
I’ve read an article on the squads supposed weekly / yearly salaries. I know these could be way off the mark but what intrigued me most were the salaries of 3 players who have been linked with moves away are supposedly on. Lallana, Shaq and Lovren.

I can see why the club could be open to selling these players as none are first choice and are on more money than some of our key players (Allison, Trent, Robbo, Wiji etc). I can see us trying to tie down quite a few players in the future and I would expect a number of them to get bumper pay rises with Trent and Mane at the top of that list.


1.) 05 Jan 2020 22:51:04
Lallana and shaqiri are on more than Alison? That's amazing. Lovren has been a great servant for us and lallana WAS great. Still has some decent football in him imo.

It's because they have been here for years and signed new contracts. Robbo and Alison are still on their first contracts I believe. I imagine their next contracts will be huge. Trent is still u21, not surprised he isn't on huge wages yet. Will be of course.

2.) 06 Jan 2020 03:02:09
hmm wasnt one of the issues with Rodgers that he didn't get control of wages. I do remember talk about the club wanting to move to incentive based contracts.



20 Sep 2019 09:18:37
I know there’s been debate on here recently saying Bobby is our most important player. But I’ve just read a stat that since Fab has been signed he’s started 25 premier league games of which we’ve lost 0. We’ve won 21 and drawn 4. For me that just shows that even the unsung players are just as important as the Mo’s, VVD’s, Mane’s & Bobby’s of the team. Every single one of those players play their part in making us the team that we are.


1.) 20 Sep 2019 10:31:49
Imagine if we signed Aguero though. our front three would be Mane Salah and Firmino.

2.) 20 Sep 2019 11:27:05
I don't think anyone said he is more important that VVD. I think people were saying he was the most important forward player in their opinion. I agree with you all the players are vitally important, they will play great games, good and have bad games. They have all proved at various times they deserve our support. You can sometimes say they had a poor game but you can't question their attitude and work ethic on the pitch.

Mane been here over 3 years and I read he is unbeated at Anfield.

3.) 20 Sep 2019 11:27:21
Imagine if we kept Sterling though! Our front three would be Mane, Salah and Firmino.

4.) 20 Sep 2019 12:45:17
Yeah, it's so easy to forget that it's a team sport above all, composed of 11 players making a contribution. We're all too busy looking for heroes or zeroes. 😉.

5.) 20 Sep 2019 14:48:03
I love Bobby and know he is key in how we play and for Mo and Sadio but no one will convince me that Aguero would be on the bench instead of Bobby. The guys a goal scoring machine and often takes up positions that Mo and Sadio don’t so wouldn’t even be a problem in that count either.

However I’m perfectly happy with who we have so who cares.

6.) 20 Sep 2019 15:13:16
Did the person who came up with that stat not think that since last season we have started 43 games, won 35, lost one, and drawn 7? How can anyone deduce that games with Fab starting were any better for us? He basically just didn't start the City game which we lost. And didn't he come off the bench moments before Sane scored the winner?

Fab is an incredible player and we are so much better with him. But the stat and the meaning taken from it is nonsense.

7.) 20 Sep 2019 21:45:50
Very impressive to say the least!

8.) 20 Sep 2019 22:53:52
I love fab, mo, bobby (alot) mane, alisson. But our most important player is vvd, closely followed by jordan henderson.

9.) 20 Sep 2019 23:49:27
Yeah it's an impressive looking stat but doesn't mean anything really. You would think matip was roughly similar, Origi too. Fabinho of course is hugely important and it's clear to see he strengthens us in his role but those stats offer no real relevancy. In the 18 games he hasn't started we won 14 drew 3 and 1 loss. Loss to city, draws against spurs and Chelsea, .

Adrian has 100% win record as a PL starter for Liverpool, means little in reference to his individual importance.



31 Aug 2019 13:28:52
Xhedran Shaqiri has decided not to join the Swiss National team as he is focused to train hard and get more minutes for Liverpool in the coming weeks. Huge dedication. 👏🏻


1.) 31 Aug 2019 15:13:03
Surely getting 180 minutes of competitive football would help his case more than staying behind training? But yeah, it's dedication, I just don't know if it's the right decision.

2.) 31 Aug 2019 18:52:05
Well I think it's not just competitive minutes is essential. 2 weeks of daily training and working on how he can better adjust to our style and shape can be good for him.

With nearly all of our first choice 11 being away it's a good opportunity for klopp to work more closely with the likes of shaqiri, Milner, lallana as well as the younger lads. I'd rather shaqiri spend time working on what he needs to do to convince klopp he can be trusted instead of playing 2 international games for a team who's system is very different than ours.

Nice to see that he's showing to make an extra effort to improve himself and fight for more involvement. It shows he actually cares when you see so many players lately just happy to pick up their wage at a big club.

3.) 31 Aug 2019 19:13:00
Completely agree har and from an Irish Liverpool fans POV it's a great decision from the big man.

4.) 31 Aug 2019 19:47:20
I like it too. Shows his desire to play for us.

5.) 31 Aug 2019 22:00:02
Two weeks of training on how to track back, and press effectively in sync with the system, can only help his game and the team. At some point in the season Shaqiri (and Ox) will have to justify the faith Klopp has put in them by not going out and getting an AM.

6.) 01 Sep 2019 02:40:46
Better spend those 2 weeks running and defending lol.



03 Feb 2019 15:28:19
Ed001 what's your honest thoughts on some of the excuses Klopp has come up with recently. Blaming the grass for being too long, pitches being too dry, the wind and snow etc. Not to mention this snow in the penalty box incident v Leicester.

I love Klopp and clearly he is an intelligent man and personally I don't think he believes any of these excuses and is using it to potentially shield the team. But it's making him and the club look a little silly. What's wrong with saying we didn't perform to our best and sadly we didn't get the win or the opposition played well but we move onto the next game. Other clubs are not wanting us to win the title and some of these excuses are giving them more ammo and to be honest you cannot defend the indefensible. Interested to hear other posters thoughts as well.


{Ed001's Note - I really don't care and don't listen to press conferences etc anyway. They really are irrelevant. Most of those excuses he actually have a point about and he never 'blamed' them, just mentioned them as an issue. I am surprised you even see this as anything other than media bull to fill back pages with crap.}

1.) 03 Feb 2019 16:01:24
I mean, those are pretty standard 'excuses'. Most managers aren't going to come out and slam the team in public. And if you think those are silly, what about managers like Ferguson blaming the team's third kit for a loss, and Houllier saying that Fowler's celebration was inspired by some Cameroonian grass eating ritual he learned from Rigobert Song?

{Ed025's Note - that last one was a whopper..

2.) 03 Feb 2019 16:27:26
Can never understand Lfc "supporters" only dying to post about something ridiculous in the hope an Ed or two might agree with him, they were nothing comments by a manager who generally doesn't make excuses. The club doesn't look silly, they're top of the league with the best manager around! enjoy.

3.) 03 Feb 2019 16:54:57
Little Naby I don’t require the need for an Ed to agree with me I have my own opinions and mindset. I can never understand the snowflakes who seem to get offended or upset by people making comments on a comment group. Each to their own hey.

4.) 03 Feb 2019 17:13:20
Snowflakes? look at your original post mate.

5.) 03 Feb 2019 17:18:02
JK, you should know better mate, lol 😂.

6.) 03 Feb 2019 17:57:01
Yeah, basically don't take any notice of press conferences. As long as the team does the business that's all that counts. and it's sad when people do creep up to the eds. terrible. By the way ed. have you had your teeth done? You look great. And that waistcoat totally rocks with your chino's.

{Ed001's Note - I need to switch off that webcam obviously.....

{Ed033's Note - Maybe Roller was talking about ED025.}

7.) 03 Feb 2019 18:03:25
Come on guys. You should realize these pre and post game press conferences are nothing but glorified PR events designed to build up suspense and interest in the games. That's all they're good for. They can't all be serious and full of accurate info. Imagine being a manager and having to do 76 of those in a season. Would you take each and every one seriously and blurt out the truth and nothing but the truth? The facts are helpful (who's playing and who's not) but all else is mostly mind games and posturing for the media to reprint.

8.) 03 Feb 2019 18:22:28
Tbh, if I were a manager I think I'd enjoy the pressers the most. Our PR man would love trying to tie down the circles I'd try to run around the media.

{Ed0333's Note - what?

9.) 03 Feb 2019 18:31:46
Just enjoy the positives, don't look for negatives that aren't there. Im not even getting stressed watching this title race. what's better, battling it out with city or just waiting for another season to peater out, looking forward to the summer's signìgs in February like we usually do?

10.) 03 Feb 2019 21:09:20
Mcgoveb I should mate 🙄. I’ll just go back to not posting anything that raises debate and just read how rosey everything is and how we are guaranteed to win the league again this year.

11.) 03 Feb 2019 22:50:52
Agreed ed01. These press conferences and pundit talk have to fill 5 minutes of television time, so people who are not exactly Oxford educated come up with half arsed theories and spit words out without really thinking about it.

12.) 04 Feb 2019 06:44:51
Come on guys, let's spare the OP some slack. It's been a boring transfer window, the team's been doing well and is looking settled. We all need something to talk about, even if it's splitting hairs!

To each their own. Talking about the pitch etc always reminds me of an old Ranieri press conference when he was the Chelsea manager. The pitch was full mud like, and he said something like "Life is a beach" at the end of the game - such a crack up!

Not really sure where the impressive performances have come from. He was ok against Everton for 60 mins when everyone else was poor and he had 8 mins against Palace. Then last night he didn’t do much but also don’t get much opportunity as the team looked disinterested by the time he came on. Next 6 game could be big for Kieta though.

I really hope Naby comes good. He always seems to pick up these niggling injuries. Unfortunately With his track record 3 months off with a 3 week pre season and almost back to back seasons and a African nations cup thrown in the middle might be a big ask for him.

Personally Werner at 50 mill is worth every penny. Obviously every transfer is a risk but we ain’t going to get another player of that calibre for the 30 odd mill we paid each for our current front 3. To be honest our transfer team are very very good but they sure know how to sell a player and scrimp on buying one.

Apart from Fab and Allison we seem to drag our heals and drive prices down which can cause issues like we did with VVD and now Werner. If true that they don’t think Werner is worth it after being a proven German international and top player in a top league and still demand 130 mill for Coutinho and 15 mill for Ibe, 20 mill for Solanke etc is astonishing.

I don’t think any of the front 3 would leave if Werner joins. The front 3 play more or less every game and if they get taken off they get taken off late. That tells me Klopp doesn’t fully trust the reserve forwards. African Nations is still planned for next season so we lose Mo and Sadio to that. Our midfield 3 rotate around quite nicely with very little difference in their output. Imagine having 4 quality Forwards vying for those 3 positions.

Ive kept track of Swansea games this season and actually watched Brewster live v derby for a works function and I think another season on loan there would be a good move. For me the key being Steve Cooper. It’s evidently clear he believes in him from their history and that would mean if he did go back there then he would get lots of game time again which can only be good for the lad.

I’ll take winning the league by a point next season. You get the same trophy for winning it by a point as you do by 20 points. Humility is also important. It’s not hard to see why other fans hate LFC fans. Nothing like getting ahead of ourselves. Defending a title is totally different to winning one. We are everyone’s cup final anyway because we are the team clubs want to beat. Next season we will be an even bigger cup final for them.

I think we just need to accept that everyone has the right to their own opinion. Someone’s opposite opinion should have little to no affect on us. If someone wants to say we will win the league by 30 points let them. If someone wants to say we will get relegated then let them. No one is a better supporter than the next on this site we are all in it together.

Injuries will be the main factor for us next season. I think if we were to lose Any of Alisson (I know we lost him this season), VVD, Taa, Robbo or the front 3 for an extended period of time then it could affect us as the players that come in to replace them would see a significant drop in quality from what they offer us. I know Williams looks a good prospect but it’s unknown whether he will be able to contribute double figure assists that we are lucky to get from our fullbacks currently.

Let’s be honest though once the match started did anyone actually see Origi. Bobby creates space and Origi seems to take up space and get in the way. It’s a shame really as last season he had some big moments but for me he’s gone backwards this season instead of pushing on.
