Fabrizzio Romano just reported that Mane has confirmed he will leave LFC,


1.) 29 May 2022 14:08:08
Always likely to happen. Won everything there is to win with us. 30 years old. Wants a big contract. Diaz was always the replacement anyway. Sad to see him go but wish him well. Liverpool legend. Fact. Let’s get Lewondowski and Gnabry in. 😂👍🏽.

2.) 29 May 2022 14:36:10
Lewandowski would be a massive waste of money at his age. He’s got a couple of years good football left in him and no resale value.

3.) 29 May 2022 14:51:47
Is his agent and him not pimping demselves around, embarassing themselves? Good old Sadio, loyal to the hilt while Salahs a mercenary! was this his great news we were all going to be happy with, that he's sauntering off to Bayern for a pittance? love it. he'll go with our blessing though while when Salah goes he'll be enemy No.1.

4.) 29 May 2022 15:02:31
I'm saddened by the news.

5.) 29 May 2022 15:34:07
This news is 1million times sadder than last nights defeat.

6.) 29 May 2022 15:42:49
Jadon, if they both go, it’s just a fact of life. As long as we replace them suitable then it’s fine. Darwin Nunez and Jarred Bowen would soften that blow.

7.) 29 May 2022 15:44:23
It was obvious as soon as he said he'd decide after champions league final. Diaz is the future. Good luck sadio
Now get bobby off the books too and rebuild the forward line.

8.) 29 May 2022 16:09:22
It was always on the cards tbh. He would of flat out said he was staying before last nights match otherwise. Been a great player for us and i wish him all the best. I agree wholeheartedly with VVVV in that Nunez Darwin would be the man to get. I reckon he'll be a goal machine for us.

9.) 29 May 2022 17:18:51
To be fair Salah's agent has been pimping him around since he joined the club.

10.) 29 May 2022 17:26:02
If true, I’ll be sad to see him go . However, no player is bigger than the club. We’ve had his peak years and he’ll probably regret leaving Liverpool for ‘greener pastures’ … as have others before him .

11.) 29 May 2022 18:06:39
How do you know that Irish? do you honestly think the bloke that's scored the most goals in the best league on the planet couldn't have got a move if he really wanted one? like seriously? 30 goals a season from the wing in England and the superpowers didn't want him?

12.) 29 May 2022 19:25:06
I know Jadon because Ed002 has told us ad nauseum about his agent, Real Madrid etc only to be laughed at due to his ridiculous wage demands and that wasn't recent.

13.) 29 May 2022 19:34:12
Nunez? Some say he lacks certain attributes that Klopp's system require. He would be a work in progress. We need a Suarez type of buy that comes in and starts scoring right away without chewing peoples ears off.

14.) 29 May 2022 20:00:59
Oh right Irish, because every signing we've made over the last few years has been called out on this site. my god.

15.) 29 May 2022 20:28:52
You asked a question Jadon. I gave you an answer 👍.

16.) 30 May 2022 00:32:00
If Lewandowski signs, and that leads to more trophies, that is a success in my book.

17.) 30 May 2022 01:08:41
You gave a sheep answer. allison was going 2 madrid, van dijk was wanted by every1 and wasnt going near us, fabinho outa blue same jota! i don't come on dis site 4 rumours cos 2 b honest ed002 (cos its him dats asked mostly) hasn't called a transferin years, no one has i come on here for the banter of fellow fans but an actual correct"rumour"hasnt bein on here in years.



01 Aug 2018 08:53:41
Linked with Barnet keeper McKenznie-lyle.


1.) 01 Aug 2018 09:53:51
Isn't he the lad we currently have on trial with 1 of the youth teams?

2.) 01 Aug 2018 09:54:34
6”7! 20 yrs old. Apparently he’s already been on trial.

3.) 01 Aug 2018 09:56:42
Yep, been on a 1 week trial with our U-23s recently.

4.) 01 Aug 2018 10:08:31
I'm assuming that means they are looking at one of the young lads being promoted to no.3.

i hope it isn't the case as the young lads need games!

5.) 01 Aug 2018 10:10:03
Sounds like a tall tale to me.

6.) 01 Aug 2018 13:17:14
Yep he was in Hungary with the U-23s and played in the 1-1 draw with ETO Gyor.

7.) 01 Aug 2018 14:22:08
Never seen him play for Barnet, think he's only made one or two appearances and I don't get down there as much anymore, but whenever I've seen him warming up I've always thought that he was very slow getting down to low balls. Like he looked like he was moving in slow motion. That being said, I'd love a Barnet lad to make it to Liverpool (especially after the shame of a Barnet lad landing at Everton) so hope he impresses!

8.) 01 Aug 2018 15:45:23
He was at spurs up to u14 level and then to Barnet. I fear we are not getting an experienced keeper in as number 3 especially as grabara has a squad number 73 according to the Liverpool u23 webpage.

We have four young well thought of keepers at the club Ben Williams and Daniel Atherton will be 19 this year Kelleher and Grabara are only a matter of months older than them.

Considering their ages should we not be organising loans out for them rather than signing more keepers of a similar age, unless the answer to our defensive issues is playing two keepers at a time.



26 Jul 2018 13:06:32
BBC reporting 2 year deal with Vida agreed?


1.) 26 Jul 2018 13:09:15
You mean from the gossip page? Which references a Turkish paper?

2.) 26 Jul 2018 13:43:13
We wouldn't pay nearly £30 million for a player on a 2 year deal.

3.) 26 Jul 2018 13:44:02
I hope we don't sign him, rather play gomez.

4.) 26 Jul 2018 16:36:47
Wow is that gossip page still there? god knows how, it's about as useless as twatter!

True ninja, me too mate.

5.) 26 Jul 2018 17:47:50
Never mind Gomez, id rather play razor ruddock in his current shape than the croatian shaun micheals.

6.) 26 Jul 2018 18:30:34
Many people I’d rather play than ruddock!

{Ed025's Note - he was crap at his peak firmane mate..

7.) 26 Jul 2018 18:33:58
Salah, come on man it's a gossip page and has given me years of ammo to wind up my non LFC supporting work mates, over the mules they have been linked with (and us :D )

8.) 27 Jul 2018 08:42:03
Thank you all so much, that's the most thumbs down I've ever got on here, I feel privileged you cared enough to both read and click the button 😉.

10.) 27 Jul 2018 17:56:56
Aoe, bizarre ok but hey it’s nice to be noticed lol.



15 Feb 2018 16:36:17

Have we any interest in Salif Sane from Hannover. Been watching a bit more Bundesliga this year and he seems excellent. Currently has the third highest rating in the Bundesliga.

He’s a big strong Senegalese CB, wins lots of aerial battles and has 6 MOTM this season. Older than some we have been linked to but looks excellent.


{Ed001's Note - not heard of any interest from us in him.}



30 Jan 2018 08:59:37
So after two very poor performances will Klopp swing the axe and shake things up?
Karius has to come back, Gomez must replace TAA and either Klavan or Lovren for the inept Matip.
I read last night ome great posts on playing Hendo and Ox as the two, Mane and Salah on the wings which I think is a great shout. Can and Wini have had enough chances and if nothing else dropping them in a World Cup year might put a well deserved rocket up their backsides.
Another great shout on one of the pages was Ings up top who is a terrier and deserves a chance and a Firminho playing in a free role.
It’s Huddersfield next so we’re not expecting all out attack against us. Klopp needs to start shaking things up and showing players that abject performances will not be tolerated. A few games in the bench for Can and Wini might just change their attitudes, hopefully for the better.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 10:16:41
Dropping gini won't perk him up for the world cup as he's watching from his couch anyway. TAA I think would be worth playing tonight as he's better going forward than gomez. Is tonight a chance to play gomez CB with VVD? Klopps stated tactics were to blame against Swansea so expect a formation change, I doubt a 442 or 4411 but possibly 3 at the back or 4132. On the transfer front, no more in this window, shame we didn't challenge for PEA. I'm the summer, a gk, cdm and a striker to replace studge and probably ings departures.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 10:16:58
The problem is this. Bringing Henderson back in is probably sensible, now that he is over his latest injury, but then who if you drop both Can and Wijnaldum, it means almost certainly that James Milner will play in centre midfield and he is a liability at the best of times in that position.

3.) 30 Jan 2018 10:19:13
I'd go Klavan, solid, unspectacular and until he was dropped, had cut out making silly mistakes. Never thought I would say that but there you go.

4.) 30 Jan 2018 10:33:57
Mr Dennis. reread the original post. he clearly states both hendo and the Ox in midfield to replace Gini and can and a switch to 442 risk formation. Milner wouldn't need to start

5.) 30 Jan 2018 11:08:47
Klopp isn't going to go 442, he isn't Roy Hodgson.

{Ed001's Note - he has gone 4-4-2 quite a few times.}

6.) 30 Jan 2018 11:13:27
Shake things up?!

With what?!

Have you seen our bench?

7.) 30 Jan 2018 11:52:26
Mr Dennis, as ED001 has alluded to Klopp has already tried this formation a few times this season, and with Keita arriving in the summer you should expect it to happen more often! 442 isn't a bad way of setting up a modern team, ask athletico Madrid and Leicester city. rather than assuming only a dinasuar like Roy Hodson would use it 😉.

8.) 30 Jan 2018 13:01:39
Formations don't win matches . Players do.
Good players
Clever players
Hungry players
Find a way to win
Do we have them?
Not sure.

9.) 30 Jan 2018 13:03:46
The difference is this, the title winning Leicester side had and current Atletico side have the players to be able sit back and soak up pressure when needed as both played on the counter and soaked up pressure, we lack any players that have that ability. Not one of our midfielders are at the level of Kante (who was so good that the team felt like it was having two players instead of one and he even made Drinkwater look like a footballer) or Niguez and Koke. Not one of our midfielders are as good as those players or ever will be, name me one midfielder that we have that even comes close? It is like entering an Austin Maestro into a grand prix and hoping to win.

{Ed001's Note - would it be the MG version of the Maestro though?}

10.) 30 Jan 2018 14:56:22
Shake things up in Kevin Murphy's box of rice (musical instrument) obviously mate :)

11.) 30 Jan 2018 15:25:37
For me the 4-3-3 is the best formation for us.

The issue for me is the lack of creativity and protection offered from our midfield 3. Hendo on his day can offer both of these things but since his string of injuries has failed to show his true ability.

Coutinho obviously offered the creativity to feed clever balls to the front 3 in tight spaces. This has been our main issue in the last 2 games against teams who are happy to sit and defend. We have had a huge percentage of the possession but it has all been slow and sideways.

In terms of protection I can't remember the last time that we had a quality DM who would sit there and help out the defence. Can and Wijnaldum have both had a go without much success. I don't know the number of goals that have resulted from Can giving the ball away in bad positions but from memory there have been several.

Keita will be a huge bonus when he joins but for me we will still need a 3rd quality central midfielder to play alongside Hendo (if he can prove himself fit and refind his form) and Keita.

If we can get in a top quality CM and a top quality GK for next season I would be a happy man.

12.) 30 Jan 2018 15:33:17
Hahaha Ed001 my mate had an mg maestro turbo not so long ago, was a bit of a state though.

{Ed001's Note - had it won any grands prix?}

13.) 30 Jan 2018 16:52:42
I think you’re spelling prix wrong Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - ah could be mate.}

14.) 30 Jan 2018 18:26:04
I think against the teams who sit deep and we struggle to break down I would like to see him swap Salah and Mane on the wings (I know they're preferred is to cut in) but having them on the wing and they're favoured foot on the outside will stop having them need to cut in where its always jam packed, I think this would solve a load of problems breaking these teams down - what's everyones thoughts.

15.) 30 Jan 2018 20:43:48
Cialb - I like how you are trying to think outside the box. Personally I think that would leave Firmino isolated in the middle and would also clog up the space our fullbacks would be running into. I suppose the fullbacks could move centrally in attack much like Lahm did at Bayern but Im not sure we have the players for that. TAA maybe but our left side I doubt.

16.) 31 Jan 2018 07:46:44
No Ed001 it didn’t win any Grand Prix, although it may have stood a chance after After god had spent years corroding the body away in an attempt to make it lighter and more competitive on the track.

{Ed001's Note - they were obviously designed for racing lightness being so easily corroded. I think the design team must have used rust to get round homologation issues and road legality.}

ED001, will you be completing a match review of the Fulham v Liverpool match, would be nice to read your thoughts.


{Ed001's Note - I will do when I can watch it properly. Difficult at the moment as it is on a new channel for this season and they don't actually have the rights for live matches until next month, so I am just waiting for them to put on a replay so I can watch it without the buffering etc.}

Nephew has to write a paper on Hillsborough, one aspect he has to talk about is the lack of political will to investigate and prosecute, do any of you know of a good article, book, other that he could read to get a better understanding of this.
Many thanks for any help or pointers.


1.) 11 Jan 2020 02:38:23
If you search ‘Hillsborough disaster David Conn The Guardian’ it will give a host of articles on the subject. One of his most recent was in December 2019 on the legal system and the dislocation between the criminal cases and the inquests.
Never buy The S*n and never vote Tory.

{Ed025's Note - i totally agree juicer..

2.) 11 Jan 2020 09:29:53
Juicer, with that sentiment does that also mean you’d never buy a German car? I’m probably going to get shot down for this but I vote with my head and not my heart, agree with the sun.

3.) 11 Jan 2020 11:35:03
What's that supposed to mean, Pegleg? You shouldn't buy a German car cos the Germans did bad things in World War 2? Is there something more recent I'm missing there?

The difference is Germany isn't run by the same people anymore. Meanwhile, the Sun is still controlled by the same sort of people who were there in 1989 and the Tory party is still run by Thatcherites.

4.) 11 Jan 2020 12:10:07
I wouldn’t buy the sun but I’d vote for who I see fit to run the country and a party run by and so far left as corbyn isn’t for me. And my point is if you can’t leave the wrongs in the past and vote with your head and not your heart then there’s something rooted. I’m not trying to play down what happened at hillsborough and what the sun and thatcher did shouldn’t be forgiven but if you’re going to hold a grudge for things that happened in the past my German car point is valid in my opinion, I don’t own a German car by the way.

5.) 11 Jan 2020 12:24:07
Can’t believe any Liverpudlian would ever vote Tory, talk about taking a massive dump all over your city and community.

{Ed025's Note - im with you mikey..

6.) 11 Jan 2020 12:46:58
You make me laugh. Some of us are not from Liverpool. Where i live. wiltshire, you would not vote Labour if they were the only party on the ballot form.

Of course your entitled to your oppinion but but so are we im with pegleg head over heart. Why oh why start on about politics.

Yours and my polotics are as different as FSG and Hicks/ Gillett but we all support the best team in the world. let's stick to footy, yeah?

7.) 11 Jan 2020 13:47:46
Wiltshire Red / Pegleg, you will notice that the original question mentioned political will and I’m afraid that politics is at the heart of the event, it’s aftermath, and how Liverpool and indeed the north of England were treated by the Tories.
There are many aspects to the matter and the whole north / south divide in the country but it remains a sad fact that the Hillsborough families have never received proper justice and also that people like Speedo Mick have to troop over the country in his kecks to try to raise money to combat some of the effects of ten years of Tory austerity.

8.) 11 Jan 2020 14:45:55
Im afraid not many people agree with you. We have another conservative government. that's 4 in a row. Its 30 years in the last 40. Even former mining towns have voted with thier heads rather than what they have always voted. You have a good mp who has done wonders keeping the Hillsborough tragedy firmly in the spotlight. But remember was any more done in the
10yrs of Labour government.

9.) 11 Jan 2020 16:34:44
The rates of homeless are through the roof since the torrid got in but at least Wiltshire’s ok. The rest of the country, the north and anybody who hasn’t grown up with a silver spoon is scum. Sorry but anyone who votes for a man who says the working class are hopeless needs to look a bit deeper. As for being a Liverpool fan you might want to see Johnson’s comments on hilsborough and scousers and then refusing to apologise.

10.) 11 Jan 2020 17:07:12
Hold on lerchy. Im from a working class family, im a postman for last 20 years. No silver spoon here.

Not all the shires are laden with money. We are 75 miles from London. We have all the same problems you have but don't go blaming people from other parts of the country

Anyone else?

11.) 11 Jan 2020 17:20:46
Lerchy, I’m sorry I’ll always vote with my head over my heart and corbyn would of been a disaster irrespective of tories wrong doing with hillsborough or comments made.

12.) 11 Jan 2020 20:41:28
Peg, I get your point but there are die hard tories who would never think twice about not voting blue. The reds have to have the same die hard supporters. What is so wrong with the world being a fairer place, with the money being spread around a bit? The rich still live a privileged life. They work hard, the majority, but so do most people.

13.) 11 Jan 2020 23:23:16
I'm Irish and I completely agree with you Juicer. There are times when things are not just political bias but of basic human decency.



02 Aug 2019 23:34:44
I know everyone is busy but wondering would anyone have time to do a preview of the season ahead for each team with new acquisitions, coaches etc obviously taken into account? Have the clubs improved their weaknesses that you saw last season kinda thing.
Many thanks.


1.) 03 Aug 2019 01:39:36
I think west ham in my opinion have done all the right things. In diop and balbuena they have the making of a strong CB partnership. Declan rice has shown he is always improving and with the experience and professionalism of mark noble working alongside him in training and games. Lanzini, Anderson, fornals offer flair and threat, yarmolenko back too, haller a strong dangerous CF suited to PL. Bad pros like arnautovic, Carroll, nasri removed from the squad. They've kept their best players, signings have been good value for money and Pellegrino a good manager. Everton and Leicester have made impressive steps too and i think Brighton also have done well.

I think villa have been showing bad business with a naive plan. Newcastle losing rafa, rondon, Perez, Kennedy replacing with a limited manager and signings that have yet only showed potential with a big lack of strong characters in their squad. I think crystal palace too will be largely weaker losing AWB and maybe zaha.

I'm predicting villa and Newcastle for relegation and Chelsea to be weakest out of the big 6. My bold prediction for dark horse is for Burnley to have an impressive season and possibly top 10.

2.) 03 Aug 2019 03:37:25
Geez mcgoveb, what makes you think anyone on this site has the ability, never mind the time 😁.

{Ed0333's Note - Don’t underestimate the writing prowess of our base Burky. I’m sure there’s someone out there with the time, inclination and knowledge to do a good piece of writing.

3.) 03 Aug 2019 07:23:18
Wolves will be the dark horses for me. They might struggle with European football though

Everton have made a couple of decent signings, keeping hold of Gomez was also a good move for them. I watched him when Everton came to Anfield, he’s a good player.

{Ed025's Note - its still a 2 horse race for the title drogie but the race for the other european places could be interesting, i think spurs are the strongest of them but the others are much of a muchness mate..

4.) 03 Aug 2019 09:34:12
For me, Wolves will be tough nuts to crack. In fact, we are the only team in the top 6 to do the double over them which is saying something about how good we were and how good they are. I was going to pick Leicester but since the lost Maguire, things may change for them. I don't know if it will be a two horse race BUT I will say that the points totals could be decreased for us and City if indeed it is a two horse race. Even KDB said the same thing.

5.) 03 Aug 2019 10:55:13
Yeah it would be hard to imagine 2 teams hitting 97 and 98 points. Out of curiosity would any of ye take 90 points come may if offered it now?

6.) 03 Aug 2019 12:28:49
Har_red92 if both teams play to last year's potential, 90 points does not even get your foot in the door to challenge for the title. Like I said, I just think that those totals last year will decrease this year. Not sure. Just a hunch.

7.) 03 Aug 2019 13:30:04
I agree with you that it's unlikely to see us both hit that tally again. I personally think 90 points would be enough to win the league next season.

What evidence is there this season that Gomez is better than Phillip's, its VVD and Matip, then Konate, there would be more money selling Gomez than Phillips and we badly need money, so Gomez is the obvious sale if we need money to. improve another area of the squad.
