According to Paul Joyce Liverpool have rejected a £118 million bid for Coutinho.

Stupid move by the club.

2.) 18 Aug 2017 16:14:15
Good the owners are passing a message to the rest of the squad and to the other teams that Liverpool cannot be forced into doing anything they don't want to either by a player or another club. We have our price they either pay it and take him or he stays where he is and in a world cup year we 'll see if he is willing to risk his place in the Brazil team.

{Ed002's Note - This is nothing to do with the owners, and nobody is listening to any messages. It is like some sort of joke reading these posts.}

3.) 18 Aug 2017 16:15:45
Holding our for 135 milll I've heard. How true that is though i don't know.

4.) 18 Aug 2017 16:16:44
Why if a) they want to keep the player or b) they think this under values the player?

5.) 18 Aug 2017 16:17:19
Yeah really stupid move keeping your best player.

6.) 18 Aug 2017 16:17:40
Hopefully they get the hint and we get one of season out of him!

7.) 18 Aug 2017 16:33:10
A 'statement of intent' or another 'smokescreen' lol.

8.) 18 Aug 2017 16:34:50
100 odd million would be a lot to spend on an unnecessary message don't you think? People need to get out of the tabloid way of thinking. The acceptance or rejection of an offer is nothing to do with any other clubs or players. We don't have time for an adequate replacement to come in so unless a ridiculous offer comes in, it won't happen. It's the same with RBL - don't need to sell, won't sell, and so the list goes on.

9.) 18 Aug 2017 16:51:11
If there was a ready made replacement available, I would agree that it was stupid. Right now there is no one who fills the void he would leave. Plus I'm glad we're not allowing Barcelona to bullying us into selling.

10.) 18 Aug 2017 17:04:07
Yeah, real stupid move keeping a player that doesn't want to stay Halifax.

11.) 18 Aug 2017 17:34:40
"so unless a ridiculous offer comes in, it won't happen" is ONE HUNDRED AND FOURTEEN MILLION POUNDS not ridiculous enough for a man that cost £8m and wants to leave.

12.) 18 Aug 2017 17:42:36
Apparently made up of a lot of add ons.

13.) 18 Aug 2017 18:37:09
What good is another £118m to spend when we can't spend the money we already have. Lack of cash is not our problem, lack of attainable first team players to improve our team is. Selling our best player won't help this either.

14.) 18 Aug 2017 19:00:32
Absolutely nailed on 5G.

15.) 18 Aug 2017 19:01:37
Amen to that 5 gold, if we can't use the money to improve thw squad then its useless. We lose our beat player and can't replace him but we are a few million quid better off? No thanks.

16.) 18 Aug 2017 19:12:00
You need to forget about how much he cost. By that definition Harry Kane isn't worth anywhere near what it would cost to buy him. Or Dele Alli etc etc. It's about what he is worth now to us as a club and 114million isn't ridiculous or over the top for one of the worlds best, most creative players in his position. Who could we go and get for that amount? Think before you get crazy about zeros.

17.) 18 Aug 2017 19:16:30
People keep saying Barcelona are comi g after our best player, there after coutinho not mane guys.

18.) 18 Aug 2017 19:19:01
THE most sense of read on here in a long time 5 Gold Stars. Well said sir.

19.) 18 Aug 2017 19:22:35
I think we'd cope ok without him. We've managed before. What would we get out of him if we deny him his move?

20.) 18 Aug 2017 19:34:04
Think its a good message from the board to the fans that their not all about profit. also, how much of this is just Barcelona using transfer publicity to cover their current gradual decline from being Europe's no.1?

21.) 18 Aug 2017 19:50:36
Its not that we can't buy players with the money we have, its that the clubs don't want to sell. We could still spend money needlessly on secondary targets.
You all need to realise that even without Coutinho or Sturridge we have still scored goals, we need a defense, and better organisation in defense.
As Macca said, it is entirely possible that we are waiting for confirmation of CL qualification before making our moves.

22.) 18 Aug 2017 20:01:23
Well I am tied on this, I think if they offer £118 mil straight with no add ons, I would take it. BUT not at this time in the window!
Basically easy, and inferred by Eds - teams panic buying pay more at this stage. All will know we have £118 mil "in the bank" and anyone we want will be £20mil more! Exactly the same as what we see with Barcelona having £200mil "in the bank"
It's random time!

23.) 18 Aug 2017 20:10:29
If we accept s 130 million offer we could nab deli Ali. Spurs are always willing to do business if the price is right.

24.) 18 Aug 2017 20:39:58
If the report i just read is correct no wonder they turned it down. 82.1 mil guaranteed the rest in clauses, which range from goals scored, winning La Liga, winning Champs league and winning Ballon d'Or.

25.) 18 Aug 2017 16:25:31
If its nothin too do wid owners ed whos it too do with, we all going dullalley wid this transfer window an this a gossip site so we jus tryin too grasp some optimism.

26.) 18 Aug 2017 16:33:40
Eds, sorry if I'm a bit slow but, what do you mean by it has nothing to do with our owners?

27.) 18 Aug 2017 16:54:47
Ed002 you say it's got nothing to do with the owners? Am I reading that wrong? If the club have turned down a new offer or if they accept it, it's got everything to do with owners surely?


28.) 18 Aug 2017 22:11:52
Does that figure include the statue?

29.) 18 Aug 2017 23:01:16
The owners don't run the club, they own it.

30.) 19 Aug 2017 00:39:01
Supposedly the offer is for 80 Million with the remaining 36 Million as add-ons. And the 80 Million is not to be paid up front; maybe as much as over five years. So what's the point? Sell Coutinho and buy VVD or Kieta for almost the same amount? No wonder it got rejected immediately.

31.) 19 Aug 2017 03:37:12
Yup 82.1 upfront and the rest is is on performance related like Cout becoming a Good, save the world with Spiderman and become a member of the intergalactic peace keeper.

32.) 19 Aug 2017 07:07:28
The owners employ the people who run the club.

33.) 19 Aug 2017 07:54:00
If the terms really are that level then well done the club for turning it down. If they feel has to be over 100m then that has to be what the club will get. When is irrelevant to an extent (I would think spread payments are quite useful for accounting and revenue purposes for most clubs), that it is money that will be paid is the issue.

Still less laughable clauses quoted there than Palace's initial Benteke bid including a chunk being reliant on them qualifying for ECL.

34.) 19 Aug 2017 09:44:03
Tbh just my opinion, couts should have thought about the potential of Barcelona when signing a 5 year deal with no release clause, if rumours are true then Barcelona have been sniffing for over a year or so, surely he or his agent would have knew this,

Fair play to Liverpool for sticking to there guns, he might want to ask his agent a few questions tho,

Hopefully if he is here in September this can all get put behind and stick together,

(Thoughts and prayers are with the people in Barcelona and all the friends and families of the injured and the sadly lost)

{Ed001's Note - Barca were not sniffing around him, he was sniffing around them. I believe his choice to sign the new contract was based on a belief that they would not come in for him for at least a year, if at all.}

35.) 19 Aug 2017 18:26:41
Great result today 1st off, I am fascinated too see wat this guys attitude is like if we don't sell him, jus going off wat paul joyces reported that he said phil would never play for us again or wear the shirt he could actually redeem him self by knuckling down giving us one season then we can sell him, he never asked for a clause in his contract so he should show respect, I know players these days have no loyalty especially those from south america an europe but this is showing him in a bad light he could leave on good terms from the club that has made him a world star and a 1st teamer for brazil he is really comin into his own as a world class talent an we could so do with him.

36.) 19 Aug 2017 21:26:09
Ed 001.if what your saying is true about couts sniffing around Barcelona before signing his contract, then it seems he has gambled and lost, I can understand why he'd wanna go, but he must have realised at the time this could be a possible outcome. can't have it both ways.

{Ed002's Note - I have been explaining this to you for more than a year.}

37.) 20 Aug 2017 09:32:34
Mane is our best player.

38.) 20 Aug 2017 22:41:29
The first reply to op just hit 100 down votes 😂 haven't seen that for a long time xD.

39.) 21 Aug 2017 03:32:15
I wouldn't have sold neither. LFC say Not For Sale, at a terrible time in the window, after selling Neymar, and build an offer at 80m that could potentially reach 118m. Not to mention some paid over 5 years. And (if rumours are true) give LFC a deadline to reconsider? hahaha. Did the Madrid drumming knock ya senseless?

Forget United doing us a favour and stopping City, Brendan Rodgers is winning the title for Liverpool!

Smeg Head

1.) 21 Apr 2019 18:46:42
I actually feel it could be Burnley next weekend that make city drop points. But to be honest I don’t care who it is as long as it happens.

2.) 21 Apr 2019 19:33:27
I think we should keep an open mind and hope City will lose all of their remaining matches.

3.) 21 Apr 2019 22:31:02
The good thing about the shalacking Utd received today, is that the have NO other choice but to give their absolute best and get something from the City game. I know many of our fans think that Ut will tank the game. I never believed it then (cos Utd and Fergie would NEVER allow it) and after today's right hiding from Everton, I DON'T believe it now. We shall see what happens BUT that game just became monumental for both teams and City MUST win.

4.) 22 Apr 2019 06:29:13
I can't believe we have had our best season in years and we find ourselves having to rely on Manchester Utd and Brendon Rogers. God help us 😂.



17 Mar 2019 19:13:09
If anyone is doubting the progress this team has made we now have more points than we got in the whole of last season and we still have 7 more games to play.

Smeg Head

1.) 17 Mar 2019 19:50:50
Still you have people whinging about the team.

2.) 17 Mar 2019 20:16:53
We were very lucky today. Klopps game management is sorely lacking. TAA probably played the worst game I have seen him play. I know he is young and inconsistent is the more, but Klopp left him on for 90 minutes. Salah was never going to score today he stayed on until 92nd minute. It's ok to leave him on when we are winning by 5 but until he gets back to scoring he needs to come off if we need a goal like we did today and give someone else a chance. But not Sturridge. He lost the chance to wear the shirt when we played Wolves in fa cup and he never broke sweat.

3.) 17 Mar 2019 20:37:58
3 more wins and that is our record PL points total.

4.) 17 Mar 2019 20:58:19
Well said smeg, we're doing fantastic, I'm really proud of the club for how far we've come, everybody else should be too. There's another 18 teams in the league who would love to be where we're at right now and City will be bloody bricking it, we've made it difficult for them.

5.) 17 Mar 2019 21:49:21
To the above poster our record PL point total is 86 accrued in 2008/ 2009. So actually it's 4 wins or 3 wins and 2 draws to beat it.

6.) 17 Mar 2019 21:39:37
I don't agree Langland. Mo will always get chances. On another day he'd score a hatrick. I'd rather that than have a player who creates nothing.

7.) 17 Mar 2019 22:27:19
After 31 games last season, our record was :
P31, W18, D9, L4, GD+39, Pts 63, 4th in table.

After 41 games this season, our record is :
P31, W23, D7, L1, GD+52, Pts 76, 1st in table.

Seriously, is there anything to mean about?

8.) 17 Mar 2019 22:31:30
I find it so frustrating how people only measure Salah’s performance in goals. He brings so much more to the team and I can’t believe some people (especially pundits! ) ignore it to create some ‘Salah crisis’ narrative. 😑.

9.) 17 Mar 2019 22:42:32
Salah, most of the other 18 clubs did n't spend a fraction of what we spent in the last few years . The last 3 years we out spent United and this never happened before . so Klopp is very lucky to have the backing that he has and unless he delivers.

10.) 18 Mar 2019 00:51:12
Langland and anyone else down on a Liverpool win.

It wasn't so long ago that statistics were being paraded around about results after midweek European games. It used to be common place for teams to drop points after playing in Europe. It says so much about the standard to even get close to winning the league that noone is talking about that anymore.

3 games in 7 days, 2 away, 1 in Germany against Bayern Munich and we won all 3. That's a mighty return in my eyes.

11.) 18 Mar 2019 08:39:33
Cant believe I messed up that math I was so confident 😂😂 anyway we will set our record total this year regardless.

12.) 18 Mar 2019 10:50:31
Roy that’s a pointless stat, go back to 4 years and they have outspent us. Could keep going.

13.) 18 Mar 2019 11:21:49
Salah works his socks off for the team he hasn't scored as many as last season but that would have taken some doing. the front three also haven't been firing on all cylinders but have still scored loads. did you see how Mo ran back when Fulham were 3 on 1.
cmon lads believe and stick together.

14.) 18 Mar 2019 13:11:02
Precisely worzal and that's why he stays on in the majority of occasions because he does work hard for the team.

He is over thinking at the moment but it will click for him again soon. Let's be thankful we have him and mane who has been excellent this season.

15.) 18 Mar 2019 19:37:20
Anyone is judging any of the front 3 ONLY on goals scored, is doing them a HUGE disservice and frankly, knows next to NOTHING about what the manager actually wants them to do.



25 Apr 2018 06:52:10
To be honest I find all of this angst over conceding 2 late goals a little embarrassing, we all want success but as soon as things don’t go exactly to plan some people start bricking it. This is the champions league semi final, if Roma can beat us by 3 clear goals in the second leg they deserve to be in the final but we are in a fantastic position, if we can’t have a little faith in this team now then when can we?

Smeg Head

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

1.) 25 Apr 2018 07:18:52
Agreed Smeg and I think deep down everyone would of taken a 3 goal advantage before the game. However I think people get annoyed that these goals are being conceded not because of Roma’s quality really, but because of silly mistakes on our part. Yeah we can’t control the refs pen decision but I’m pretty sure one of the goals Salah set up was offside so swings and roundabouts really. However between that and Lovrens usual blunder we let them back in and are again our own worst enemy. The tie was dead at 5-0 and now they have hope when there should have been none.

2.) 25 Apr 2018 07:30:45
Agree Smeg - the same team that conceded those two goals put us 5 ahead. Sometimes you have to take the rough with the smooth and overall it was a masterclass for about 60 minutes where we were just unplayable. Lovren made one mistake, and then a tough call (but correct) on a penalty - such is life, we still have a three goal lead so get over it and let’s go finish the job.

Play like we know we can and score one goal away and it’ll be a massive battle for them.

3.) 25 Apr 2018 07:41:22
If you’d have told me back in September that we will have a 5-2 lead going into the 2nd leg of the champions league semi final then I would’ve have done an Irish jig in front of your very eyes. What a team. What a result!

4.) 25 Apr 2018 07:58:56
I can only see us scoring in Rome against that woeful defense. That said, if Roma do race into a 3 nil lead in the first half hour, that wouldn’t surprise me at all- nor would us still going through. I’m just hopeful we won’t start the game like we did at city or how we ended it against Roma. We allowed them to play themselves back into the match- if we go at them, I am fairly confident we’ll be heading to the final easily enough but for the love of god, keep Salah on until the eightieth min though.

5.) 25 Apr 2018 08:11:04
They haven't conceded at home in the cl this season.

As I said in a few posts. If we want the final we can just live off our first leg result we have to go there and score!

6.) 25 Apr 2018 08:23:03
I agree Smeg. its a very good result non the less.

However we will never win trophies with Lovern as our primary center back. He can play 5 good game, a good 75 mins and then lose his concentration to concede a goal like that.

If you want to fight for honors you cannot get away with this inconsistent defending. He has been given too many chances over the years.

We need to get a new CB to partner VVD next season.

{Ed001's Note - and yet Real Madrid have won multiple trophies with Ramos, who is just as bad but with the tendency to pick up ridiculous cards on top of it. It doesn't work like that, every player makes errors. Every team has inconsistent players. There are no perfect 11s. It just feels like Lovren is a scapegoat for a team failing.}

7.) 25 Apr 2018 08:59:32
Lovren is a much better RCB than a LCB IMO, and has played really well for quite a while now. I’m fairly comfortable with him playing next to VVD.

He misjudged one ball that led to a goal, you’ll be hard pressed to find a CB that never makes a mistake!

8.) 25 Apr 2018 09:14:02
And also makes a mistake that gets punished instantly. Yes that the cl final but that could of got so different. Offside for one. A bad touch. Hit the post. Keeper saves. Breaks his leg yano anything but no it went straight in.

It happens.

Can we just sit back and think for a second. After this season we have had. Mo in this form. Are we honest y not going to score There?

We just did them for 5. We score then it's tie over. Because they have to come out and we just score again.

9.) 25 Apr 2018 09:20:17
To me records like "havent lost since. " And "haven't conceded a goal since. " all they mean is that that team is a step away from that next loss or conceding the next goal. We are over thinking this. We have everything to punish Roma again, but we need to turn up mentally. I think the yellowwss on hendo and milner are potentially huge as it may play a factor on their mentality - that is a pending final and also lack of fit alternatives. So be interesting to see how that plays out.

10.) 25 Apr 2018 21:20:45
Unless iv missed something Faith I’m not sure yellows over subsequent semi’s can make player be suspended for the final? I’m pretty sure that changed right?



10 Mar 2018 01:00:36
Apparently Pogba is injured for tomorrow’s game, massive blow for Liverpool!

Smeg Head

Id rather him not playing. Him mctonimay and matic, allows him space and while he can be poor, he can be excellent, strong and with a good passing range. Who else can they bring in?

2.) 10 Mar 2018 10:43:54



29 Jan 2018 03:16:17
I'm a big Klopp fan and i think he should be here next season regardless of what happens this season but i'm getting a little tired of hearing how we will fill glaring holes in our squad next transfer window.

Last January we desperately needed a left back and a quick attacker, we got neither.

Last summer we got a left back and a quick attacker but we also needed a quality central midfielder and centre back, we got neither.

This January we have signed the central defender and have Keita coming next summer but we now need a creative midfielder to replace Coutinho and its glaringly obvious we need a new goalkeeper, again we will probably get neither.

I have no doubt that we will sign these players in the summer but what other positions will we need to fill? Right back? another CB? another left back? Will we sign these players or will we be told again that the players we want are not available?

I'm not advocating buying for the sake of it or massively overpaying for a player but surely there has to be a happy medium, why are we continually waiting for the next transfer window to fill the glaring holes in our squad?

Smeg Head

1.) 29 Jan 2018 07:02:08
Perhaps we should go back to the good old days of buying for the sake of it when our primary targets aren't available?

2.) 29 Jan 2018 07:30:18
So we persisted and eventually got pur targets in the next window? I suppose we could just go and sign a Caulker-type for each position need.

3.) 29 Jan 2018 07:33:55
Seems like our main targets are never available. However, the second, third and sometimes even our fourth choices, over the past season or so, have worked out quite well. Most of them have been in their mid-20s as opposed to buying unproven potential as we did in previous seasons.

4.) 29 Jan 2018 07:43:09
Smeg, we could always sign a Markovic or Balotelli to satisfy you, can't we?

5.) 29 Jan 2018 09:47:27
I agree with Smeg. If you don’t address your weaknesses then they will be targeted by opponents.

If you can’t sign the requisite players then oh have to adapt your tactics to suit your squad. We should have been playing with a player sitting in front of the back 4 and not joining in with the press.

Negative? Did you even watch the game? We had more of the ball and more shots than our opponents. Their goalkeeper pulled off a couple of great saves and Salah missed a wide open goal. You can say many things about that performance but negative isn't one of them.
