Morning, looking at players to come in who i think could do a job, Bissouma, guy is a beast, Mendy and Barnes from Leicester, Podence from Wolves, think he has more potential for us than Traore, Saka from Arsenal, McGinn and Grealish are getting the plaudits at Villa but Luiz is no slouch in the midddle to, have we looked at any of these, sometimes trying to see these guys with better players around them is better than having a big name from another country, we don't need another Keita, players who know the league and maybe just need a higher level of player around them to reach their potential.


{Ed025's Note - all them you mention are pie in the sky lancaster, there is very little money in the pot at liverpool mate and unless 1 or 2 big names leave there wont be much coming in im afraid..

1.) 30 Dec 2020 11:28:44
With Salah seemingly pushing, was thinking of the money he would generate mate.

{Ed025's Note - thats a big IF at the moment lancaster, the money liverpool would want would be too much for any club in this financial climate mate..

2.) 30 Dec 2020 11:48:37
Thanks Ed.

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..



01 Jul 2019 15:35:48
Heard a rumour Mbappe interest is there but the stumbling block is wages, Liverpool have asked Nike to pay towards this as part of the nearing kit deal.


1.) 01 Jul 2019 15:55:14
Find that very hard to believe Lancaster but boss rumour! Love ones like that ????????.

{Ed002's Note - It is utter nonsense. It should never have been posted.}

2.) 01 Jul 2019 16:18:11
I know Ed002 but it cheered me up on a miserable Monday.

3.) 01 Jul 2019 17:01:01
May as well link us to Messi or Ronaldo as well. Utter nonsense. I seem to remember LancasterRed linking us to Eriksen a couple of weeks back. Must be fun plucking random names out of thin air.

4.) 01 Jul 2019 18:32:02
If you throw enough darts blindfolded one will hit the board.

5.) 01 Jul 2019 16:59:16
Ah Ed mate. Let them through, while it is utter nonsense there's no harm to it.

{Ed002's Note - It clutters up the transfer page with rubbish and stops any relevant posts.}

6.) 01 Jul 2019 18:28:59
Hi Ed002

Utter nonsense is most definitely the best description in terms of the Mbappe rumour, it started with the LeBron James / Mbappe friends and Nike connection, Liverpool potential sponsorship deal with Nike and the conspiracy theorists had it all figured out, but it was a nice dream though, why did you have to ruin it so quickly? Ha Ha.

7.) 01 Jul 2019 22:36:21
I herd hansen sings about mbappe all the time.

8.) 02 Jul 2019 08:03:29
Put up the Eriksen rumour on here before anyone then boom a few days later it starts gathering speed, thought this was a rumours page? I could read a paper and post half the stuff up but never put an article up that's been in a rag, original rumours which have legs, it will come out then you can all jump off your little high horses, Morning.

9.) 02 Jul 2019 09:21:38
Don't forget he took a picture with Sturridge and he follows Stevie G on Instagram. he's practically a Liverpool player already.

10.) 02 Jul 2019 14:19:41
Mbappe is not needed. And that tells you everything about our front three.

11.) 02 Jul 2019 16:36:27
I thought the two hundred million transfer fee would be more of a stumbling block.

12.) 03 Jul 2019 15:56:59
Theres me thinking its a rumour page too!



04 Jun 2019 12:12:47
Heard from the close friend of a former player that feelers have been put out to the agents of Eriksen to see if there's any chance/ interest in a move to us.


1.) 04 Jun 2019 12:21:26
Christian Eriksen? Haha, good one. I heard from my dog's best friend's grandmother that Sven-Göran Eriksson is being felt up to see if he has any interest in working at the club shop.

2.) 04 Jun 2019 12:46:14
Fair enough, got told from the same person, Coutinho and Fekir are of a solid interest too.

3.) 04 Jun 2019 12:56:26
Wish it were true. Eriksen would fit in really well with this Liverpool team.

4.) 04 Jun 2019 13:32:56
Eriksen is a fair weather footballer in my eyes.

{Ed001's Note - agreed. Only plays when given time and space.}

5.) 04 Jun 2019 14:21:55
Eriksen is not good enough. Has talent yes, but would never be able to do all the things Klopp asks midfielders to do. And maybe it's me, but he looks so freaking slow.

6.) 04 Jun 2019 15:23:36
No your right he has gotten slow. I really noticed it this season.

7.) 04 Jun 2019 15:42:21
Eriksen ain't good enough and snubbed us years ago when we showed interest.

8.) 04 Jun 2019 15:41:31
Have you heard anything from the agents or the like of these 3 Eds? can't say where its came from but would be interested to hear if you have an insight.

{Ed001's Note - nope.}



23 Oct 2017 12:19:07
Hallo Eds
Quick question, is there going to be real effort made NOW to look for players in January? I know its a bad month to do business sometimes.


{Ed001's Note - the club never stops looking for players to buy in the next window or two. The problem is that they never seem to find them!}

1.) 23 Oct 2017 14:47:22
I can't see much business been done in Jan, so I'm personally looking to the summer. Should we get another player or two in Jan then that's a boost but I'm not getting my hopes up for them to come crashing down Jan 31st when we've signed nobody.

2.) 23 Oct 2017 23:12:06
We can't not sign players in Jan if we don't then for me Klopp is finished.

3.) 25 Oct 2017 03:24:00
Its only worth signing players if they are going to improve us. Its easy to say the current ones aren't good enough but no point is flushing money down the toilet simply to announce a transfer. Point is we have to find player (s) who are better than our current ones who are also available and wish to come to us - which is why Jan is always tricky.
Personally Id like to see money spent on overhauling the scouting department.

25 Jan 2021 08:18:02
Morning, Miles better performance yesterday, think Trent was too far forward that first half and we should of held him back a little, seeing Williams on the team sheet was game over and probably a lift for United, the lad couldn't keep up with Jan Molby now and isn't even League 1 level, harsh but its been seen a mile off, wouldn't be surprised if Klopp put him in to prove we need strengthening asap, glad we kept the aimless crossing to a minimal and certainly more upbeat for Spurs Thursday, keep the ball down, play Bobby as a 10 and let Salah and Mane play off the last defenders, sack off the crossing, poor showing not having Mini come on again but hey ho YNWA.


{Ed025's Note - i think we have to stop all this scapegoating of williams lancaster, he was not the one who misjudged the cross and left greenwood free for uniteds first, and not the one who gave away a silly free kick on the edge of the box for their winner. ok he was not great but certainly not the only one who fluffed their lines, alisson hardly covered himself in glory either to be fair.
It was a decent performance by the reds in a very entertaining game and showed that there is still a good side in there actually, on another day you could have won it but thats football mate..

1.) 25 Jan 2021 08:41:01
My only positive from yesterday is we scored 2 goals. We didn’t win the game and more concerning we conceded 3. Losing a game 0-1 or 2-3 isn’t really an improvement for me.

2.) 25 Jan 2021 09:40:47
I said yesterday that I hate slagging off our players, especially the youngsters, but I am a bit bemused at how Williams has got to be the pick of our academy defenders given his lack of pace? This must be obvious to the coaches even at youth level football?

{Ed025's Note - they must see something in him johnny and they get to see him day in day out, with all the injuries and the apparent lack of funds it looks like hobson,s choice mate, i actually feel sorry for the lad as it cant be easy being thust into the limelight so quickly and i think the supporters should cut him some slack..

3.) 25 Jan 2021 10:40:48
Yes I agree that there were a few that made mistakes yesterday but the thing is, there hasn’t been a game this season where I’ve watched Williams play and he hasn’t made a mistake. Surely we can get someone in on loan until the end of the season at least to fill the gap left by the injuries.

4.) 25 Jan 2021 12:03:40
25 - 'that's football'. I'm with you mate. I think we underplay how much footballing luck we got the last couple seasons. we're not getting it now, coupled with the injuries and C.V. and it ain't pretty. we do need an element of luck to go our way right now.

{Ed025's Note - you always need a bit of luck faith and liverpool are not getting the rub of the green lately, but things change very quickly in football mate and the season is far from over..

5.) 25 Jan 2021 12:09:54
Anyone notice that winaljdum gets in the best postiton in the box but refuses to take a shot on goal. reminds me off Sissoko.

Gini will be missed when / if he goes i just wish he take a few shots on goal himself though.

6.) 25 Jan 2021 12:34:22
The lad is living our dream so fair play to him, felt he would of been of benefit if Trent didn't leave him one v one so often, he dived 3 times with no hope of winning the ball, looking very amateur while doing it, i think it maybe Klopp showing the owners, this is all we got.



05 Jan 2021 08:21:57
Biggest problem for us at the minute is Firmino, the ball isn't sticking to him, he is dropping so deep there is no pressure on the opposition back line, im tired of the "yeah but he drops deep, makes space bull", we need a striker on the lastman constantly there, ready to bring other attackers in, all we are doing is going side to side putting aimless crosses into Salah! Thiago i would prefer to be next to Henderson or Fabinho, he isn't a base man, we need to win the ball and give it him, Trents dropped in form, no biggy long term, he has been unreal, the subs we are making have been poor, Minamino is being wasted, we have moved the whole team around, time to get players back in their best position, Fab for one is a huge miss from midfield, id even have henderson cb and get fabinho back in his best place. If we don't get a cb we have no chance, top 4 in this season is hard, Thoughts?


1.) 05 Jan 2021 08:41:52
Fabinho is our best option at CB at the moment, needs must unfortunately.



04 Jan 2021 12:36:03
Am i the only one who is praying we don't sell Salah and end up with Traore? He is awful and at a high price too, if Salah goes, fine, good price is all i'm after, no player is irreplaceable but Traore please no, A. Lennon on roids springs to mind.


{Ed002's Note - Ismaila Sarr might still be an option.}

1.) 04 Jan 2021 13:09:36
Spot on LR. I normally go along with anything Mr Klopp wants. But i can't see why any top team would want him.

He is super quick with some skill, but how many assists and goals does he have? Not many i bet.

2.) 04 Jan 2021 13:20:17
The only suitable replacement for Mo is Kyllian Mbappe if we can't get him do as much as is humanly possible to keep Mo.
Highly under appreciated by a lot of LFC fans.
But I believe that without Mo we wouldn't have 6 and we wouldn't have 19.
I know that Allison and Virgil have made a huge difference but without scoring goals you don't win matches and Mo's numbers are the reason that we won both.

3.) 04 Jan 2021 14:18:09
Guaranteed you were saying the same about Mane, Gini and Jota. I have give up ever doubting Klopp targets no matter how strange they seem at the time. If Klopp and his team wants them, chances are they will be successful.

4.) 04 Jan 2021 14:23:26
Ed002 - do you go fishing for bigger game or do you just like to catch minnows on here?
We are NOT going to directly replace Salah with a winger who has scored 4 goals in the Championship.

{Ed002's Note - Try not to be a cretin.}

5.) 04 Jan 2021 14:25:29
Hi Ed2,

What are your thoughts on Sarr as a player?


{Ed002's Note - I don't think he would be suitable but Klopp has already tried for him as you know.}

6.) 04 Jan 2021 14:40:22
langland, 100% Mbappe but we have nowhere near the funds for him, he is the dream, Haaland for ST is a dream probably too, if we have to go bargain shopping, Saka, Bousamma and Podence/ Barnes for me, all look the part while playing for "lesser" sides, put them in with our side and the potential will show, Eds 002, i'd take Sarr over Traore, still a bit rough but has a better end product and goals can come when coached better.

7.) 04 Jan 2021 14:53:48
If no chance of mbappe signing I'd go for haaland.

8.) 04 Jan 2021 15:14:11
BigVirg, no didn't think that about Mane or Gini, liked both before we signed them, as Salah was 4th choice doesn't really mean much if choice 1 or 2 are Traore or Sarr.

9.) 04 Jan 2021 15:43:33
I really don’t see how Haaland replaces Salah in our front 3, they’re nothing like the same type of player?

You’d have to play him through the middle of Jota and Mane surely, and then where does Firmino go?

I don’t think Haaland is for Liverpool at all.

10.) 04 Jan 2021 16:07:28
The juicer, we're going to need goals if Salah left, Firmino isn't going to step up with Salahs numbers, nowhere near, Mane and Jota out wide with Haaland through the middle is tasty to me, only two people could replace Salah for me, Mbappe or Son and both are unlikely unfortunately so we will need to think about the main central player getting some goals and Bobby isn't a 30 goal a season forward.

{Ed047's Note - I couldn’t believe anyone would say Haaland wasn’t for them. 🤷‍♂️

11.) 04 Jan 2021 16:27:48
The Juicer - if Salah is the one to department out of the front three then the only replacement for me is Haaland. In terms of goals he replaces Salah and is young with a number of years ahead of him to go up two, three gears.

Lancaster Red - Well said Bobby is crucial to our team but will bit provide the goal return Salah does nor will Troare or Sarr, although I would back Klopp in any decision he makes. Failing Haaland its Mbappe or Son who I think is simply world class.

12.) 04 Jan 2021 16:50:44
Ed047, Haaland seems to be a rare breed of young player who puts the game before the fame, would have him all day, mobile powerhouse is hard to find, spot on Alonso1786.

{Ed001's Note - he chose to be managed by Mino, there is only one reason to do that and it is not for the good of the game, it is about money.}

13.) 04 Jan 2021 17:26:05
With the amount of crosses we have put into the box the last few games it feels like we thought we already had a Haaland type of player already playing for us.

14.) 04 Jan 2021 17:27:42
Id go for gnabry. He will in time produce salah numbers.
Bayern might sell cuz they will surely be looking at haaland to replace Lewandowski.

15.) 04 Jan 2021 17:40:43
Traore is absolutely Sh1t! Don’t know was anyone sees in him he can run I’ll give him that and I’d pay 20m max for him if I had too but my god I’d not want him.

{Ed047's Note - unless of course you think Jurgen could make a better player of him

16.) 04 Jan 2021 18:27:55
I agree Juicer.

17.) 04 Jan 2021 19:17:36
Ed047 I don't see anything special about Traore.

{Ed047's Note - me neither Barry it was a question as to whether Klopp could change that.

18.) 04 Jan 2021 19:18:48
Ahh sent too soon Ed047 but would you think that JK could turn him into something special?

{Ed047's Note - haha, that was my question really Barry and as good as he is I’m not certain he could.

It would mean Traore working hard for one and I’m not sure he’d be up for that or that beyond pace he has the basic skill sets.

19.) 04 Jan 2021 19:56:41
I totally agree with your assessment Ed047 but with JK you just never know how he could transform a place. As Ed002 has often said JK does have the"Klippertys"for him.

{Ed047's Note - exactly that mate, can you imagine if Klopp worked his magic with him, he’d be an absolute beast



31 Dec 2020 10:41:41
Might get slated, might not but for me the game was done when Gini was the first sub, not a positive sub at all, i think Klopp must be losing track of time as the timing of the subs has been awful for a while, after 50 minutes of the last two matches it has been clear to see we have struggled, drop Henderson to CB and get someone with drive into the midfield early, Thiago couldn't have come back soon enough, Bobby is a 1 in 5 player and has been for over a year now, we need a natural finisher, the ST at Liverpool should easily be getting 25+ and that's with Salah and Mane adding their tally in, we are 30 yards deeper through having no natural CB, Fab is winning the ball much deeper so its affecting our press, lack of pace in the centre can't be overlooked, the league will go down to the wire, exciting but hard to watch at the same time.


1.) 31 Dec 2020 11:43:29
As fantastic a manager as he is Klopp has a weakness when it comes to substitutes.
I understand that out of all of us only he knows how many minutes our players coming back from injury can be risked, but if Shaq can only be risked for 2 minutes then he shouldn't have even travelled.
The same goes for Ox, he managed about 15 mins on Sunday, but last night he couldn't get on the pitch in spite of the game crying out for his dynamism.
I am frantic that having got within one League trophy of Man U and if we win this year we draw level.
I will be absolutely gutted if we hand it back to them.

2.) 31 Dec 2020 11:49:35
I actually enjoyed the game last night.
Newcastle played well and pressed quite high at times, and it allowed for a more open and enjoyable game to watch as a consequence.
We created more than enough chances to win, a 1 or 2 nil result and there wouldn’t be any complaints today.
Of course finances will dictate but the January window will be interesting.
I still think Gini will stay at Liverpool too.

3.) 31 Dec 2020 11:54:18
I don't see them lasting, they have a tough run and thursday night thrown in soon, they will fall short i think.



05 Oct 2020 10:59:17
Adrian ( no choice)
Trent Fab VVD Robertson
Henderson Thiago Jones
Salah Mane Jota
Team against Everton 4-2 win, Job Done.


1.) 05 Oct 2020 11:20:54
Gini plays instead of Jones I think.

2.) 05 Oct 2020 11:20:58
Players are going out to play internationals. So could come back injured or even with CV so we will just have to sit though the pain for a few weeks unfortunately!

3.) 05 Oct 2020 12:40:09
Longthing76, That is the way it is going to be for the coming weeks, I guess. We are going to have to regroup and get back to basics ASAP.

Traore is awful and at a massive price, i'd rather Eliott played before him tbh, we need to put everything into Mbappe, one signing would change everything.

22 Feb 2021 11:29:19
I'm not having that its a tactic to get Firmino coming so deep, we literally have no one in that centre, every match it happens, we need to go back to basics with our Central Striker, tell them to stay on the last man and just be available to get the ball to feet and lay it off, or spin off the last defender, i'd be putting Mane or Salah central until Jota is back and keep Bobby out the team, he has gone to the Rodger's Firmino where he disappears for 75 mins a game, he is breaking everything down for me, Mane did more in 10 second half minutes being in the centre than Bobby did all game, he needs to be told not to come back deeper than our midfield.

22 Feb 2021 11:14:57
OliRed, ill blame FSG along with him, they need to sell up, ill keep saying it until we get new owners, there are players available to change formation easily too, we could go to a back 3 or change to a 4-2-3-1 to give the centre backs more protection, there's a lot of options.




Click To View This Thread

22 Feb 2021 11:11:02
TBH we have different options but Klopp is being a bit stubborn and not changing formation, defence etc, I don't think we should be on this bad a run with the players we have fit, i just think Klopp has had the wind knocked out of him, he will be back stronger i believe.
