What about Graham Potter as our next manager?


1.) 31 Mar 2024 16:38:31
I’d rather have Brian Potter.

2.) 31 Mar 2024 16:49:03
I’d rather have Harry.

3.) 31 Mar 2024 17:00:25
?? Lfc8. In fairness he managed the Phoenix nights well.

4.) 31 Mar 2024 17:19:05
His full name is Brian Chelsea Potter! May be Boehly hired the wrong Potter.

5.) 31 Mar 2024 17:21:30
Graham Potter? Based on what exactly?

6.) 31 Mar 2024 17:34:34
How about an interim manager and wait until end of next season for Alonso,
am not that impressed by Amorin, Nagelsmann or De Zerbi.

7.) 31 Mar 2024 17:46:15
@irishrover do you mean my beloved Harry on here? Love Harry he's literally my hero but I don't believe he has got the coaching badges needed.

8.) 31 Mar 2024 17:54:05
Based on the excellent work that he did at Brighton! He was not given a fair chance at Chelsea. He is an excellent manager. Atleast that is my opinion.

9.) 31 Mar 2024 17:54:08
He needs to step back to move forward.

Too much of a risk and I heard that his communication with players is really bad. Some Chelsea players were very unimpressed with his communication.

Rare inside info?.

10.) 31 Mar 2024 18:18:12
Who is not a risk though!

11.) 31 Mar 2024 18:32:18
Was it the jungle drums or the smoke signals that he was using? ?.

12.) 31 Mar 2024 18:56:23
Potter made a poor decision taking the Chelsea job, he’s also not taken a step back into management to regain his reputation, so he has to be a straight no. And as for an interim manager until Alonso has finished next season, well that’s just stupid, he won’t be joining us now or next season, it’s probably the case that he will never manage us, he is waiting for the Madrid job, accept that and move on.

13.) 31 Mar 2024 19:12:28
VV, agreed. It looks so obvious that he is waiting for the Real Madrid job, you'd have to be cross-eyed not to see it. Time to put to rest the "he loves us because he said so" chants. The Bernabeu has told him " win the Bundesliga title this year, hang around for another year and try to repeat it, then we'll clear the decks from Ancellotti for you". ?

Maybe he'll come to us if he fails at Madrid. But will we still need or want him? (Since Klopp will be back after his one year sabbatical, LOL) . ?.

14.) 31 Mar 2024 20:39:12
@VV, still waiting for you to nominate your choice of our next manager ….

15.) 31 Mar 2024 22:59:05
Potter should NEVER had taken that Chelsea job and now, that has hurt him badly. There's a reason why Alonso chose to stay at Leverkusen. You got to hone your craft and take your time to move up the ranks.

Potter took a bad job and I knew he would get hurt cos he was coming up the ranks nicely and developing Brighton. Now, he is severely damaged goods now. Sad for him, IMO.

16.) 31 Mar 2024 23:37:12
Oli, you're right, but a revival in fortune is always possible, and I'm sure you'd agree with that. Nagelsmann is going through the same thing. You need a combination of factors like, right team, right players, right tactics and a few other things to come together at the same time and more often than not you're back in the limelight.

I am in no way promoting Potter as our next manager. You made it sound like it was over for him, and I wanted to point out that it's not necessarily the case.



27 Jan 2024 05:18:55
Ed001, do you think we should go for Alonso? Is his lack of experience not an issue?


{Ed001's Note - yes we should. There is no one with experience out there who has even a slight possibility of being the right choice.}

1.) 27 Jan 2024 06:27:26
Would Amorim be a good shout Ed? Almost 24 hours goes by and the annoucement still hurting so bad.

{Ed001's Note - maybe, but he has not yet fully convinced me.}

2.) 27 Jan 2024 07:00:43
Morning ed1. I agree alonso is stand out choice, done well at leverkusan and would instantly have respect of lfc fans and players. Do u think if he offered job would he take it? Personally couldn't see him refusing it.

{Ed001's Note - he has said publicly he wants the job a number of times.}

3.) 27 Jan 2024 07:19:14
Oh right didn't realise he had. i see on previous post u had said alonso football more similar to klopps than nagelsmann. I haven't seen leverkusan play under him, just kept eye on results, have u seen much of leverkusan? Is it similar to ours there style of play? I'm thinking we have makings of v good team and i wouldn't want a manager to come in and completly change what we doing as there no call to. He obviously will have his own ideas but if it ain't broken don't fix it.

{Ed001's Note - I have watched a few this season and last because of him. I really enjoy watching them under him.}

4.) 27 Jan 2024 07:30:06
He would certainly be my pick. A risk to be sure but there's not many world class managers available or that would be the right fit. Alonso is amongst the next gen and is certainly doing the business right now. Added to the fact that he lives the club and the fans live him I think it's likely.

5.) 27 Jan 2024 07:37:07
Alonso has the required experience for me Ed

He has been coaching for 5 years now inclusive of roles at Real Madrid, Sociedad and now Leverkusen

He has gone about his coaching / managerial career in exactly the right way and it appears to be his next step would be to a “bigger” club after Leverkusen.

Seems happy to have taken his time to learn and understand what the managerial role is all about and not jump at the first senior position that came along.

{Ed001's Note - agree completely.}

6.) 27 Jan 2024 07:43:46
That’s nice to knows eds1 any idea how he did at real scociedad?

{Ed001's Note - really well, which is why he got the call from Leverkusen. He is the hot hand right now.}

7.) 27 Jan 2024 07:47:35
Alonso would be my first choice, but if not may be De Zerbi could also be looked at?

8.) 27 Jan 2024 08:03:33
Ed1, I would have thought that with the way we are trending up, back to being contender again and Klopp being happy again after last season, we would see Klopp at least for 2 more years here. Honestly didn't see this coming all of sudden at all.

Us being good again might be one of the reasons he feels that he can leave on a high knowing that his successor will have a good base to build on with young players coming through and the club being in so much better place now.

Most managers would probably leave after what happen last season but not Klopp. Speaks volume about the kind of man he is and what he has done to our club. It will surely sting next season seeing someone else in the dugout next season.

9.) 27 Jan 2024 08:04:16
guess i need to go watch how BL plays now.
if we really do get Xabi, i think it could go really well for us.
he is a completely differently personality to Klopp but i think he'll make an excellent manager for us because
1) he has an amazing football brain, as Rafa used to say, players need to have game intelligence and he has plenty of it
2) he knows and loves the fans and city
3) he's young yet calm, a certain kind of composure that can make big and right decisions

but until we really know who's coming in next, let's enjoy Klopp for this final stretch.

10.) 27 Jan 2024 08:04:46
I would support Xabis appointment. My reservation would be his lack of experience at first team level and that we haven’t seen him navigate adversity.

Didn’t ed2 mention a couple months back that Xabi was being liked up for Real Madrid?

11.) 27 Jan 2024 08:35:16
The timing is right in terms of trying to get Alonso as I’m sure Ancelotti has just renewed a contract at Madrid and I’m sure Alonso was/ is on their radar to replace Ancelotti. So if we went someone else first Xabi might not be available when we want him. Also he loves and get the club and city. He’s doing a remarkable job at Leverkusen. Hopefully he will be our man after he wins them the Bundesliga and klopp walks away with a quadruple.

12.) 27 Jan 2024 10:00:12
{Ed001's Note - he has said publicly he wants the job a number of times. }

Ed01 as recent as 2018, Alonso openly said he would jump at the chance to coach us. As for what he is doing at Leverkusen, I have seen highlights and tactical breakdowns of his system and it is crazy good. Looking forward to the Leverkusen v Bayern game at Leverkusen in a couple of weeks. That could well decide the fate of the title this season should Leverkusen go 7 points clear.

13.) 27 Jan 2024 11:37:34
The only down side of Leverkusen doing so well is that they are in the UEL!

Could we see a Liverpool- Leverkusen final?
What will be the outcome?

And if indeed Alsonso becomes LFC manager after that game, what kind of a tale to tell following the final.

Sounds like fantasy but who knows what’s written in the stars.

14.) 27 Jan 2024 13:04:24
@Sgynwa were that game to happen, not sure the result will matter should Alonso be the actual and no. 1 target. Why do I say that? We played Roma in the CL semis in 17/ 18 and we put 7 goals past him over two legs. Did that result hinder us from dropping 62m on him in that summer? We all know the answer to that. If Xabi's the guy we want, the result won't matter based on precedent, IMO.

In terms of what tale to tell? Narratives are just narratives, IMO. Professionals don't dwell on such things. They just get on with it based on their analuysis and due diligence on the topic.



27 Jan 2024 05:17:18
I just hope we win the premier league this season so that he gets to celebrate at Anfield. The 30 year wait ended during C.V. times and we could not experience the full scale of emotions with the Anfield crowd. Really hoping it happens and especially VAR does not screw it!




17 Aug 2023 05:07:08
I am ecstatic with the signing of Endo. One of my all time favourite players is Dirk Kuyt, the ultimate workhorse of his generation. Endo's energy will give you those vibes. The guy will fit right in.


1.) 17 Aug 2023 06:42:02
Except Kuyt was released when he turned 30 and we bought one whose elder than Fabinho ??.

2.) 17 Aug 2023 08:26:04
Habibi "age ain't nothing but a number", many players have played at the highest level until their early thirties, for example Paolo Maldini, Andrea Pirlo, Francesco Totti and Luka Modrić - it's often down to the player's lifestyle and whether or not they've been lucky with injuries. We may get two very good seasons out of Endo which cannot be shifted at, in that time we may get a younger DM we can develop in addition to Stefan Bajcetic.

3.) 17 Aug 2023 08:26:42
Except kuyt is an attacker whose longevity will be lesser compared to endo whose a dm. atleadt give the guy a chance. don't write him off like this. we are Liverpool. not some team that sacks managers left and right and signs 3 players for a single position and hope one turn out to be good.

4.) 17 Aug 2023 08:31:53
What's Fabinho got to do with it?
What's Endo's age got to do with it?
He's 30 not 40.
The two youngsters went to Chelsea, we need a defensive midfielder so we're trying to get one.
If you are underwhelmed by the prospect of Endo signing, try to get over it. I know you might feel embarrassed on social media for a few weeks but I hope the team can bring you some sort of comfort.

5.) 17 Aug 2023 11:35:54
By that account Habibi should we sell Salah too. He is above 30 too.



26 May 2023 12:21:40
Harvey Elliott was such a fabulous dribbler when he started out for us. That part of his game is missing now. Ed001 what do you feel is the reason for it? Confidence, lack of space in midfield, stifled with instructions or something else?


{Ed001's Note - instructions. Modern coaches give players so many instructions they play like robots.}

1.) 26 May 2023 13:07:59
Agree with Ed here fully. even Diaz' dribbling has gone down the pan since he adapted to our system.

2.) 26 May 2023 13:48:07
I think he's still afraid of getting clattered and doing his ankle again.
Cant blame him but needs to get over it or he'll always be holding himself back from fulfilling his potential.

{Ed001's Note - I have seen no sign of that at all.}

3.) 26 May 2023 14:03:46
Me neither, Ed01. The kid gets stuck into tackles for fun and never pulls out of a challenge, imo. He just kerfstok get it together and hopefully find a position that suits his talent cos he’s got lots of it, in my view.

4.) 26 May 2023 15:06:49
Really? I've seen him go down waving his hand and holding his leg several times. He always gets up and carries on after. Been worried for him every time. He's looked abit more confident with it recently but still looks to offload the ball quickly when someone is closing down on him.

5.) 26 May 2023 16:02:48
Top young player, only recently turned 20 and playing in the toughest league in the world. Not many 19 year olds tear up the Premier League, Portugal maybe but not the Premier League?.

6.) 26 May 2023 16:19:19
Another big concern for me. We haven't seen evidence of improvements in our technical players through the coaching.

Even under Brendan you saw the likes of Coutinho, Suarez, Sturridge and Sterling improve.

Do we coach our attacking players at all?

I think we have perfected the selling club mentality. We have one of the best players in the world and all we guys want to do is sell him! Are we buying Mbappe with that money then? Replacing him will be one of the hardest tasks for us.


{Ed025's Note - heard it all before Sanjit. keegan. Rush. Fowler. Suarez. Torres.. they all got replaced mate and someone new takes up the mantle. It’s just the way it is..

The money that Chelsea are throwing to sign Gordon should brighten you up Ed. I don't think he is worth that much. Anyways he is used poorly by Lampard. In all this, Gordon will be the biggest loser. Strange move at this juncture of his career.


{Ed025's Note - if Chelsea are willing to pay that sort of money for potential then good on them I say sanjit. I would bite their arm off mate..

In all fairness Ed 066, Sanchez did not face any problems in adjusting to the English culture and climate.


{Ed0666's Note - no I meant his move to man United from Arsenal didn’t work out. My point is it’s no guarantee if you buy a player from the Prem he will work out. All transfers are a lottery.

I don't think he brought back Hummels or Goetze but he did bring back Kagawa and Sahin.

While Matip has been impressive at times, his presence makes us vulnerable to balls over the top. I don't think he is a better defender than Gomez. Hopefully Joe gets over his injury vows. If he does, I have no doubt that he will recover his place in the side.

Personnel are not the issue. You guys have an extremely poor manager. All teams except you lot are playing nice attacking football and showing intent. Even Austria, Turkey are pressing high and attacking their opponents, but you guys continue to play utter dross dragging the level of the entire competition down.

He will play RB and invert to be one of the pivots. That is how Slot plays. He is the dream RB for him. I donot see him moving into mf.

Jurgen is not someone who pretends. It would have been impossible for him to not disclose it till the end. Indeed, the announcement emotionally drained the squad. They were desperate to win for him. During a close run, we need calmness. We lacked it.

Slot does play high press but it is mainly a possession style unlike Klopp's gegenpressing which I think is the most attacking and energetic brand of football. Despite high intensity under Slot, it may not be equivalent to the intensity we saw in initial Klopp years. Slot also plays with inverted full backs. It is a tweaked Pep style football from what I have seen.
