Benfica have announced to the relevant authorities in Portugal (a legal requirement) the agreement to sell Nunez to LFC.

So it is done subject to the medical.

KBL

1.) 13 Jun 2022 07:52:57
I still won't believe it's done until he s played three seasons with us.


2.) 13 Jun 2022 09:00:03
And don't forget the Liverpool lean?.


3.) 13 Jun 2022 13:05:36
He's faster than Torres according to his stats. I mean not many have been faster than Torres. He's going to be lightning fast.

{Ed077's Note - what stats? Is there even stats(video games withstanding) out there of acceleration/burst of pace?

We're offloading players to balance the Konate fee.

I really don't see any other first team ready players coming in during this window.

We all know how FSG work.

You never know Keita ight surprise is all this season as he should get more game time with Gini gone - if he can stay fit.

KBL

1.) 08 Aug 2021 12:14:12
Keita? 2 hopes there Bob and no! ’.


2.) 08 Aug 2021 12:21:10
FSG seemed to work quite well with Alison and VVD both of who cost world record fees for their positions when bought.


3.) 08 Aug 2021 12:19:50
When Keita is fit Klopp often plays him, he is just not fit often enough. How do FSG work? Last year they bought 3 players, 2 first teamers. This year they bought Konate of course they will buy another player if Klopp wants one or two.


4.) 08 Aug 2021 12:29:22
Another season of the comedy “football” stylings of Naby Keita, sigh. Hopefully the Penny will drop within the club that he’s utterly hopeless and be sold next summer after another disappointing season. £50m down the khazi.


5.) 08 Aug 2021 12:41:15
Slop slating our best player on form.


6.) 08 Aug 2021 12:50:34
No he’s absolutely spot on. Keita is not good enough and has been nothing but a waste of time and money. Also, even when on form he’s not even close to our best player.


7.) 08 Aug 2021 13:00:32
West Derby Wanderer, you do realise that Coutinho’s fee paid for Allison and VVD.


8.) 08 Aug 2021 13:01:05
Has been in every game recently.


9.) 08 Aug 2021 13:39:43
I'm going to get behind the lad - if it wasn't for his injury record he'd be a far better player than Wijnaldum by now. Hopefully he can avoid any more lay-offs, and fulfil the potential we saw before he signed.


10.) 08 Aug 2021 13:50:57
IPC12 - you took the words right out of my mouth there!

WDW obviously doesn't realise that fact.

Markp08 - let's just wait and see. What I posted above is my opinion of course, and I could be wrong. 3 weeks to go to see if I am or not.


11.) 08 Aug 2021 14:17:32
Our form player it’s embarrassing to even hear or see people say that! Friendly games they mean Notting mix b match team against the same!
Keita is a klopp dud buy as 02 has said klopped cried for him and he got him he will stick by him too most disbelief!
That lad needs a solid boot in the hole!


12.) 08 Aug 2021 14:29:21
Kieta hasn’t been on form since he signed for us. He got his big move and big pay cheque and went straight into semi retirement.


13.) 08 Aug 2021 15:12:22
He’s a liverpool player who represents the club. Maybe afford him and the manager and the club a little respect! Fans? You give us a bad name. Sometimes things don’t work out as we all hope they would. That doesn’t mean you should turn into an arsehole because it’s hasn’t gone to plan. Fan = supported not some childish boo boy who knows f all about f all.


14.) 08 Aug 2021 15:28:43
We can’t sell Keita because no one will buy him but let’s keep abusing him, that’ll make him play better.


15.) 08 Aug 2021 15:54:24
I know Keita had a torrid time with injures and never really lived up to his true potential with us. While I'm fine if he's sold, but if he's not, let's hope he finally comes good. At the rate that we're signing players this season, we really need the existing players to step up. Rant all we want, if you love Liverpool, stand behind the team. Otherwise, you're free to support PSG or City.


16.) 08 Aug 2021 16:14:01
Posters like IPC12 and KBL amuse me. Do they think that the acquisition and decision to sell Coutinho was nothing to do with the club's management.


17.) 08 Aug 2021 16:18:34
Well said DAPred.


18.) 08 Aug 2021 17:16:45
You lot are embarrassing. constantly slagging off players and the owners. Really tiresome reading it all. Its called support for a reason and you lot clearly ain't supporters.


19.) 08 Aug 2021 17:17:54
Redman and thunderbird. well said, the others are a joke.


20.) 08 Aug 2021 18:00:49
Aye, its embarrassing all right. Its like nearly willing him to fail just so some can be proved right. Weird!
Its a week until the season starts, if he stays then support. He certainly won't get any better ridiculing him.


21.) 08 Aug 2021 19:18:22
We’re in year four of the Naby Keita project and he’s shown nothing in competitive matches in the previous years to suggest he’s got what it takes. It baffles me how people can be so gushing in praise and effusive of someone who has never put even a minute fraction of the hard work and effort that Gini Wijnaldum did and yet Gini used to come in for a lot of grief. If Keita left tomorrow, the club would not miss him, however I can be sure that Gini will be missed as he was reliable, always match fit and put a shift in, all things that Naby has never done.


22.) 08 Aug 2021 19:37:42
Supporters.


23.) 08 Aug 2021 20:11:25
Red planet? What are you talking about? You sell a player, you reinvest… isn’t that what a logical team does?


24.) 08 Aug 2021 20:30:02
IPC12 and KBL. In the 2 transfer windows we purchased VVD and Allison 'with the Coutinho money', we also purchased Keita, Fabinho and Shaq.
With other sales, we actually spent £70ish net, taking into account the Coutinho fee.


25.) 08 Aug 2021 20:43:30
Just wondering how FSG work - enlighten me.


26.) 08 Aug 2021 21:28:12
IPC12 I understand that outgoings at least notionally help balance the books and fund incomings yes.

I also understand - at a basic level at least, having sat at the back of the class when we did maths at school - that FSG invest in assets when they see an asset adding to the value of the club. I also understand that some assets are purchased based on the forecast return from future revenue streams. Over the past 18 months one of the revenue streams has been severely impacted, and as of now continues to be so. So, we don’t have enough money, or certainty of sufficient future match day revenue at the moment to ‘splash the cash’. Even if we did we are also stuck because of the issue of home grown / non-home grown players. Can’t say too much about this because I dropped geography before o-levels but I think it has something to do with coming from Widnes or further away.

I think though, given FSG being a company that is keen to make a profit on their assests and with the proof of the caliber of players they have brought into the club, the state of the art training complex they have built and the upgrades to the ground which will see us with a 67,000 capacity (and more income for us to all play wannabe Premier Manager each transfer window) that they deserve a bit more respect than they sometimes get on these crass threads that people start because we haven’t bought the latest name that some hack with no knowledge thinks up.

Anyway on we go - I read a bit earlier that we are thinking of bidding for some 34 year old Argentinian who is a feee agent …….


27.) 08 Aug 2021 21:47:04
Don’t buy a Porsche if you can’t afford the petrol, John. If someone somewhere could really clarify how one of the most historical clubs, biggest names and very recently super successful with many record breaking sponsorship deals do not have a pot to p. in?


28.) 08 Aug 2021 23:08:46
They do have a pot to pee in. But it sprung a few leaks.


29.) 09 Aug 2021 00:48:16
I did this management course a few years back and they were banging on about data leading to information leading to knowledge leading to wisdom and one of the things they covered in passing was a little thing about knowledge :

There are things you know that you know, for example, your name, address, date of birth.

There are things you know that you don’t know, for example how Margaret Thatcher got elected

There are things that you don’t know that you don’t know, for example as a football fan how the finances of an international brand Premier League football club works ….


30.) 09 Aug 2021 07:00:17
More hopeful and excited for Kieta staying jnjury free and kicking on this season tha I am about new signings.


 

 

31 Jul 2021 09:48:35
No more incomings for us this year I'm afraid.

KBL

1.) 31 Jul 2021 09:52:26
Will this nonsense stop?


2.) 31 Jul 2021 13:07:14
There was a fella the other day saying there would be bids for Bissouma, Bowen and someone else ‘in a few days …… I love the transfer window.


 

 

19 Feb 2021 12:25:59
Alisson out tomorrow - and Kelleher injured too!

KBL

1.) 19 Feb 2021 13:11:55
Klopp just confirmed he's fine.


2.) 19 Feb 2021 13:19:27
Klopp just said Alisson is fine.

KBL, do you have your info from a reliable source, or is it from a site that saw he missed training yesterday (as is being widely reported)?


3.) 19 Feb 2021 13:21:43
Bum steer there people - Klopp's just said Ali's fine. My bad. Twitter twaddle again.


4.) 19 Feb 2021 13:29:18
Just because they weren't seen in the training photos? Chill out with the histrionics please.


5.) 19 Feb 2021 16:23:09
Nothing to do with training pictures JM - I had several messages from normally reliable sources.

I've suitably reprimanded the culprits though.


6.) 19 Feb 2021 16:40:12
Usual story, see a story on Twatter and of course it must be true.
Even though most folks know about Twatter by now, it never ceases to amaze me how many read this sort of crap and instantly swallow the bait.


7.) 19 Feb 2021 17:05:46
Don't be so harsh on KBL this is a rumours site! KBL you owe me wireless mouse that I threw across the room after reading your post mate.


8.) 19 Feb 2021 18:06:54
In fairness to KBL, nearly every rumour of injuries on twitter this season have turned out to be true. Usually its 99% rubbish, but all the rubbish ones seem to be true. Thank god its rubbish this time.


9.) 20 Feb 2021 12:41:05
Hey FlashTheRed - I'm not even on Twitter, and I still got it wrong.

MMR - love it. Just the kind of thing I do.


 

 

09 Oct 2020 09:35:29
Has anyone any idea how long Alisson will be out? The club tend to keep these things very close. Like when Henderson was injured, Klopp said it was absolutely nothing, but he was out for ages.

I have been hearing whispers that Ali won't be back before Christmas.

I really hope those whispers are way off the mark.

KBL

1.) 09 Oct 2020 10:13:39
I read somewhere (might've been on here) 6-8 weeks.


2.) 09 Oct 2020 10:24:55
Thanks Salah - I hope you're nearer the mark buddy.


3.) 09 Oct 2020 10:43:15
i think those whispers have been from everton fans. the injury he has sustained is around 4-6 weeks recovery.

{Ed025's Note - cheers doc.. :)


4.) 09 Oct 2020 10:44:04
Fingers crossed mate.


5.) 09 Oct 2020 13:15:54
Southern Red - what is his injury actually? I have only heard it's his shoulder, but nothing else.


6.) 09 Oct 2020 15:09:45
“He has no chance to play against Everton, " Jurgen Klopp said after the Villa game, also backing Adrian to step up. “I don't want to put a timeframe but four weeks is possible, six weeks more likely. "

it was a shoulder injury i believe a collision in training.


7.) 09 Oct 2020 16:56:40
Shoulder injuries are nothing to mess around with. If he comes back too soon, and reinjures, then it's likely he will need surgery that will come with a recovery time that would likely cost him the season.


8.) 09 Oct 2020 14:12:49
No worries Ed.

Just sat here with a cuppa and a toasted teacake, before another boring day at the coalface. It's great having this forum to be able to call into now and again for a bit of craic.

Just thinking, with Klopp presumably being held in high regards by FSG, is it possible that he might put forward any suggestions/ recommendations for who takes his place, or is it a case of 'I'm out' and that's it?

KBL

1.) 30 Jan 2024 09:19:03
Well if his suggestion is anything like suggesting Brandt one or two players ahead of Salah, then perhaps we just take that recommendation with a pinch of salt :D.


2.) 30 Jan 2024 09:34:29
Actually klopp never say he will not return back to liverpool, did he?

{Ed002's Note - He is never going to be the coach of Liverpool again. Move on.}


3.) 30 Jan 2024 10:30:21
Klopp said in his presser “this old man isn’t going to tell or advise the club on who should replace him”.


4.) 30 Jan 2024 10:31:24
Which stage of the 5 stages of grief are you guys on?

Me, I am still on denial. It's much easier than anger or depression.


5.) 30 Jan 2024 11:49:31
How, I gutted that Klopp is leaving but he was always going to leave soon anyway. No need for grieve, enjoy the success and the rest of the season. He leaves with his head held high and the club in the best state it has been in since I have supported them. Lots to celebrate not mourn!


6.) 30 Jan 2024 13:41:51
I'm over it now. Fantastic manager, a true Liverpool legend but all good things come to an end.

One thing I truly appreciate is what he's leaving us with, he's left an incredible squad of players with tons of potential, overall very young and a lot of youngsters there ready to step up. This is klopps doing.

Whoever comes in, it'd take one hell of a bad manager to ruin what we currently have, we're future proof and I take comfort from that.

Onwards and upwards, we can be incredible, we just need the right man for the job after Klopp and I believe FSG will do their very best to ensure we get the right person in.


7.) 30 Jan 2024 14:39:21
Spot on, Salah. I'm done with the whole "Klopp is leaving" announcement thingy as well. The man himself has clearly moed on so who am I to keep dwelling on it?

I am now focused on this season and supporting my team till the very end. That's all I can do and will do. The matters about who will replace Klopp or signings or whatever, that's stuff none of us here can control. All I can hope for is that FSG get the right appointments esp. at the DOF and managerial level and others. Personally, I choose to focus on the things Klopp asked me to do which ironically, are the things I can control.


8.) 30 Jan 2024 17:09:43
We all knew that Klopp would leave someday but I had hoped for at least one more extension to his contract so he could see the job through with this current crop. Alas it was not to be.

I will miss him massively he’s become part of the fabric and the history of the club, it’s quite hard to imagine match days without him.

That being said Liverpool FC has always been bigger than one man and we will continue to be the greatest club and fans in the world.

Nobody likes change but it is sometimes needed in order to grow. With the right people in place this could be the start of something even more special.


9.) 30 Jan 2024 17:52:33
Spot on @Salah.

Just one little niggling count for me …. The timing of the announcement took attention away from the last week of the transfer window. Perhaps it’s just a giant ruse to deflect attention from the window …….


10.) 30 Jan 2024 18:34:04
I’m still absolutely gutted. But fact is that it’s done. Important thing is getting the right man for the job.


11.) 31 Jan 2024 09:33:30
WDW3, weren't signing anyone in this window anyway and that was clear for many of us to see esp. with players coming back from injury so not sure any deflective ruse was required, IMO.


12.) 31 Jan 2024 16:25:07
Nobody asking more about the teacake?
Shame on you.
What did you put on that teacake KBL?


13.) 31 Jan 2024 19:11:02
I think Beckers Pecker sums up my feelings too, it is hard to read and listen to pressers atm but it will pass. I think that's for another day though, for now there are games to play and trophies to win perhaps.

We may finally get a penalty now the refs know klopp is off!


14.) 31 Jan 2024 19:38:47
@Oli, don’t lose sight of the fact that it’s the banter page mate ?.


 

 

02 Jan 2024 08:53:05
Well, I just want to congratulate both teams on giving us such a great game in absolutely horrendous conditions.

Liverpool came out deservedly with the 3 points despite missing a pen, and having a goal disallowed - and also despite the referee (? ) seemingly intent on trying to book as many of our lads as possible.

Great watch though, and hopefully we won't miss Salah too much.

KBL

1.) 02 Jan 2024 09:25:58
KBL, and despite us getting into our own way in the final third which is something we still need to improve upon. Apart from that, spot on, my guy.


 

 

15 Dec 2023 14:14:18
Banter page please EDs.

I'm a little bit worried about the game on Sunday. Everybody, including the press and other media thinks we will beat Utd on Sunday, and quite easily.

Thoughts like that make me nervous, and will probably work in their favour too.

What's everyone's thought about this?

KBL

1.) 15 Dec 2023 14:53:02
Nothing will have any bearing on the game as long as we turn up. If we play to our ability it’s a Liverpool win no question.

I don’t tend to worry about how a match will turn out though, it’s not healthy. I always just look forward to a game and hope for the best.


2.) 15 Dec 2023 15:13:30
It's not that I don't get what your saying, but we've gone in as favourites in the last 5 games, lived up to that tag in 4 of them and won. 3 of them really comfortably.

The one we lost was when we were having a really poor start to the season and ten Hag ball hadn't been found out yet. And that was at Old Toilet. I can't see that happening again. Especially at Anfield.


3.) 15 Dec 2023 15:56:20
OP, relax. The media have been doing this before near every Utd game making it like a circus and some big for the past 5 years like we are hot favorites and all that and bar the 2-1 at OT last season where we did not look like we wanted to be there, they get battered.

The only time the media hyped Utd up as favs. ironically (the hype their fans and the squad and manager actually believed), they got Seven-ed. For me, Klopp has done a good job with preparing the players to just play the game, stick to the plan and execute and not get caught up in the occasion and the media circus. We do that and stay focused and turn up, we will be grand. Let the media and the online fans do their thing. It's not like you can stop any of that, really.


4.) 15 Dec 2023 16:41:13
Why wouldn't the media hype up Liverpool v Manchester United? It's the biggest game in English football.


5.) 15 Dec 2023 17:00:12
Same here KBL. Can’t stand it when people assume the game is over before it’s kicked off.

They’re not going to roll over for us. We will have to fight for the win.


6.) 15 Dec 2023 17:10:55
Exactly, Thunderbird 2. Why wouldn't the media do that? Fans will say what they want and think we will Seven them again and there is simply now way you can stop that.

N btw, not sure fans talking smack on Twitter has any control over the universe cos fans don't play. Players play and coaches coach.
As long as our players stay focused and execute the game plan and not play the occasion, we will be fine.


7.) 15 Dec 2023 17:34:57
I also worry going into the game as heavy favourites might work against us mentally.


8.) 15 Dec 2023 17:37:00
LFC to win.


9.) 15 Dec 2023 17:53:45
We just need to not beat them too badly so he gets the sack. can't keep getting good united managers sacked. get to 4 nil then relax.


10.) 15 Dec 2023 18:02:57
We'll play well, and we will win.


11.) 15 Dec 2023 18:07:07
I think most United fans would take a 3-0 loss now if offered.


12.) 15 Dec 2023 18:10:07
RS, not sure Seven Hag gets sacked even if they lose heavily to us. Those guys can't be saved, at this point IMO.


13.) 15 Dec 2023 20:30:32
UTD are pure rubbish. It would be a shame if Liverpool don’t thrash them.


14.) 15 Dec 2023 21:18:55
Don’t believe Utd fans would take a 3-0 loss. not a chance. When fergie was there and we was crap I always believed we would win when we went there. Like klopp said last year was a freak. I’m just glad I was alive to see it . Also without the sh*thouse Bruno he is the catalyst for everything bad in that team wish he was playing .


15.) 15 Dec 2023 23:20:29
It will suit Utd. They’re at their best when they sit back and hit on the counter.

That’s what they did at OT last season, they went for it in the first 20 but then played like the away team for the rest of the match.

They won’t even have to try and look like they’re the home team on Sunday, that will suit them.

They’ll play the game like they did against Bayern at home for me. Hope to nick a goal, but basically play not to get battered.


16.) 16 Dec 2023 12:00:42
We have to be careful against united, everybody remembers when they were flying under fergie and let's face it we were awful, we always gave them a tough game and got some memorable wins, let's hope our head is on the game from the off.


 

 

27 Nov 2023 22:53:47
Does anyone else think that Szobo's influence on the team has dropped off recently.

He started like a house on fire, but has been much quieter in the last 3/ 4 games.

Maybe it's just me.

KBL

1.) 27 Nov 2023 23:22:53
Everybody thinks the same mate. I heard him doing plenty interviews and saying what he is going to achieve. I hope he gets back to doing his talking on the pitch.


2.) 28 Nov 2023 01:59:05
think he's been playing fine. the midfielders will have their periods of playing like the best version of themselves mixed in with quieter periods.


3.) 28 Nov 2023 08:57:48
To me, Szobo's level has dropped a bit but that is seen as a concern due mainly, to the epic levels he reached after just arriving here. IMO, he needs a rest to get his batteries rechanged physically and mentally so he can re-focus and go again. Not too worried at all. The kid is levels, man.


4.) 28 Nov 2023 11:58:45
Sobs a little immature going off his interviews and videos in training. Bellinghams like a 30 year old in comparison . Applies himself extremely well.
In order for sob to reach maybe Bellinghams level he needs to mature imo. Also would like him to gel more with more of the squad than just trent. Dominik has it all but Gerrard had it all but to be a great you have to be ruthless mentally and want it more. I like what carragher said once. These people in the dressing room shouldn't be your mates. You're there to do a job for the football club who employs you. That should be your main focus. Would love a Roy Keane in that dressing room to be honest ??.


5.) 28 Nov 2023 12:07:19
@Mark “everybody” eh? ?.


6.) 28 Nov 2023 12:02:51
It's amazing isn't it how our expectations change when money is involved.

I guaranteed if I was running two marathons a week. Everyone would hear about it.

It's only the wages their on which make it acceptable to not take notice of the work they do, because they get paid well enough.

He's just knackered. Plays a cm for Liverpool and Hungary. Also captain there. Under enormous pressure. New team etc.

He's going to be the best midfielder we have had in a very long time.

He's 22.

If we kept him until 28. We could have the de bryune of w9rld football. imo.

Try not to get to fixed looking week to week.

He's unreal. Just normal.


7.) 28 Nov 2023 11:59:13
Not concerned as he's still working hard off the ball. Hopefully he will find a bit of form again soon.


8.) 28 Nov 2023 14:30:14
I would say everyone, unless you know someone thinks he hasn’t dropped off?


9.) 28 Nov 2023 17:50:28
I haven’t asked everybody @Mark, so, like you, I wouldn’t know.

Until I do, I wouldn’t presume to speak for everybody and try to add credence to an opinion and present it as a fact.


10.) 28 Nov 2023 21:58:42
Mizer, you say he should gel more with the team, but then reference carra saying those in the dressing room shouldn't be your mates?


11.) 29 Nov 2023 00:04:21
Klopp agrees and has started substituting him. that's really the only person that counts.


12.) 29 Nov 2023 03:40:57
I've felt as tho he's dropped off the last 4-5 games. I don't buy the fatigue bs he's a professional athlete. The way a central defender ghosted past him on Saturday was embarrassing. The one that's really impressive and I think will go on to be our best midfielder is Ryan Gravenberch. He's a little bit ungainly but boy is he effective and fantastic in tight spaces. He's going to be some player imo.

You say Klopp agrees Mark and that's why he's subbing him off - if he agreed with it would he be starting him in the first place?

"I don't buy the fatigue bs he's a professional athlete. ".

Redflyer, This may be foreign to you but professional athletes are human beings like you and me, not machines and even machines get wear and tear and have to be shut down and lubricated to prevent such things. Even worse, you say Gravenberch impressed you. Could it be that he had the legs cos he did not go on int'l break and came on vs tired legs unlike Szobo?

The fact that someone has to explain this to you is what I find embarrassing, not the fact that a CB (another professional athlete) ran by Szobo, something that happens all the time in football. Good heavens.

I know we have to play every team in the league, but our away fixtures this season have been a really tough ask. Chelsea, Newcastle, now Spurs, and then Brighton.

I think these next 2 will be veerry difficult games for us.

Wouldn't it be something to come out of them with another 6 points!

If we come out of Brighton and Spurs with 6 points then I genuinely think we might go on to win the league.


2.) 29 Sep 2023 19:44:18
Steady on Something Red

Personally the only thing that will make me think we MIGHT even do that, would be beating city.

As arsenal and we have proved in recent years unless you take points from that fixture, it’s very difficult to beat them to the title.


3.) 29 Sep 2023 21:00:31
I think we got the beating of city. (peps head goes) Spurs is a tricky one and Brighton is tough always is, going back to the days Perry digweed used to get man of the match v us.


4.) 29 Sep 2023 21:02:38
Funny how people view beating City as the benchmark as to whether this Liverpool team can win the league. We were dreadful for much of last season and yet we beat City. Beating City home and away is worth 6 points a season, beating the other 18 teams is worth 108 points.


5.) 30 Sep 2023 01:39:56
Why is it funny? Why can't both things be true? We can beat ManCity twice in a year and that indicates our quality against the team of the decade in the Epl. And then we can be beaten by any other of the 18 teams indicating the quality and overall high level of the most competitive league in Europe.


6.) 30 Sep 2023 01:41:10
To be honest, I’ll be happy with 3 points against Spurs.

On a different, though related, point: given that they all have a number of players out injured or suspended I would happily play City, Arsenal, Chelsea and United as our next four matches (by the way, welcome to the PL Seven Hag - he’s getting the hang of being a ‘whinging Manc’ quite nicely) . It’s their turn to be in the position we were in early / mid season last year with a big part of the squad either out with injury or struggling with firm when they returned.


7.) 30 Sep 2023 03:47:15
Thunderbird - We know Liverpool are better than every other team in the league other than City (yes, much better than Arsenal), so beating City is just proof we are on their level. Further, no team has ever won 36 matches in a 38-game season, the most was 32, so beating City is not only a barometer but an important route to winning the title given the latter’s complete domination over every team in the league other than us.


8.) 30 Sep 2023 08:05:07
One game at a time, Redmen. Aim to take three points from the next game and see where we finish.
At the moment, I think we're far too open to be thinking of challenging City.


9.) 30 Sep 2023 09:30:30
OP, the schedule is the schedule. You play who you play. Nothing crazy going on here.


10.) 30 Sep 2023 14:19:01
To op What about when we get a sequence of easy games? We all play the same teams.
Moaning for the sake of moaning?

Yeah, we seem to have a lot of players getting hamstring injuries again. A bit like when Klopp first came in. Szobo, Trent, Alisson, Salah - although his was when away at AFCON.

Not the best time right now.

Very tough game tomorrow at Brentford, where Klopp has never yet won.

Digger10 - I think the reason he tends to get injured is because he is a very physical player who never pulls out of a tackle or 50/ 50 challenge.

A lot of other players do.

Some of our other players never seem to put a decent challenge in.

I like him in the team.

Leeeeeroooooy - correct we did, but we didn't win everything losing out on the 2 biggest prizes, and finished outside the CL spots for the first time in years last season. Why? Because we decided not to invest in the midfield area.

I think most would agree that was a mistake and highlights why we are not able to compete consistently with the mega money teams.

Nothing to do with short memories, We've won 1 PL title in 33 years.

We have spent around £110 million this window. As far as I am aware we have sold players for around £52 million - so far.

To be honest this is about normal for us and that is why I don't expect any more incomings - midfield or elsewhere this month.

I do think this will leave us short and it will likely come back to bite us yet again. To me it doesn't feel like we are putting down markers to the rest of the PL that we are ready to compete hard enough.

But we have a new training complex, increased ground capacity, and a growing commercial business which has moved us up in the money league.

So we have a successful business, but right now an unsuccessful PL team.

I like our owners, but with them I don't think we can consistently compete at the very highest level.

Klopp has stated that he doesn't know if Moises is having a medical today, and has only been told that the clubs have agreed a price. So still a bit to do.

scouse john L8 - you are right, Arsenal have had big players missing, as have other teams. They certainly have not had 7/ 8 big first team players all out at the same time.

We lost all our first choice strike force in one go last weekend.

Let's face it, the timing is not good.

BP - I have watched the match back a couple of times now, and I have to say that I agree with your comments.

It's funny how watching after the live game when the apprehension and nerves are not involved gives you a different overall impression.

It's true Arsenal were 'at it' more than us in the first half, which I'm sure everyone would have expected, but they had very few direct attempts on goal.

Second half we were very comfortable until the gift.

In fact it was Arsenal that were looking more likely to concede.

So they had a huge slice of luck at Anfield when we were refused a stonewall penalty, and again on Sunday with the late Christmas present from Ali and Virg, oh and the fact that Gabriel should have been sent off too.

Hear, hear Salah. I don't think anybody can come in and do what he does but someone could come in and do things their way ( different), and still be successful. Look at it when Paisley followed Shanks, and became the most successful manager of all time for our club.

Interesting times ahead.
