Just seen our new manager interview on Liverpool tv then. he came across really well. looking forward to the coming season. top4 n a good chance in the cups will do me this season . anything else a real. bonus.


1.) 19 Jun 2024 17:20:55
Seen a few fans say they would be happy with top 4 next season.

I'd imagine the clubs and players aim next season is a title challenge and the minimum expectation a top 4 finish.

I'd imagine City and Arsenals will be the same.

Utd, Chelsea, Spurs, Newcastle and villas aim will be to finish top 4.

Regardless of the new coach we should be setting our expectations above them.

2.) 19 Jun 2024 17:36:53
Just watching it now, he comes across really well looking forward to seeing what he does.

3.) 19 Jun 2024 18:22:45
Jk23.City n Arsenal have finished last 2 seasons higher than us. we got a few manager n hopefully some new players . take time to gel. so Top 4 is where I think we will be . don't get me wrong I'd love the quadruple.

4.) 19 Jun 2024 18:34:28
I have no control over my expectations. I can't help but see at least two better sides than us.

5.) 19 Jun 2024 19:47:59
The aim is to win the league and CL. If we came let’s say 3rd and didn’t win anything I’d be having serious doubts about Slot. We have a squad full of top players and a summer to add to it. Let’s not act like it’s a squad needing an overhaul and not ready to win like when Klopp took over. Please can we as a fanbase not fall into this top 4 is an achievement nonsense.

6.) 19 Jun 2024 20:17:10
I also can't seem to control my expectations. We will win the quadruple next season.

7.) 19 Jun 2024 20:46:28
There's 2 better teams at the euros than England but I'd imagine they still think they have a chance of winning it.

I can imagine the contract negotiations with Trent now. Don't go to Real. Stay here and compete for a top 4 finish lads.

I'm not saying we'll win it but we should be aiming to.

8.) 19 Jun 2024 21:04:15
I expect you're too young to remember the last time we did it, ArAy.

9.) 19 Jun 2024 21:34:35
Oh we can win it, JK. But I don't expect us to. We should aim to win it but I don't expect us to win it.
My expectations are based on my experiences but they could change in a few months time.
Let's hope my expectations are not lowered ?.

10.) 19 Jun 2024 22:19:01
Should we really ever expect to win the league? or expect to win a cup?

I feel like that is reserved for a club like Real madrid, PSG, Bayern.

11.) 19 Jun 2024 22:57:27
Rigsby, I'm 63. And no, I don't remember the last time we did it. Nor have I ever been to Anfield till date. Got something to say about that too?

I expect you'll now have some mercy on us and save us your constant repetitive drivel disguised as meaningful football commentary. Your carpet bombing the page with the same things over and over again reminds me of Harry. But he had better football knowledge.

12.) 19 Jun 2024 23:27:57
Arsenal and City make proper investments in the squad, Liverpool attempt to breed promising talent. Top 4 is what I expect but we shouldn’t be happy about it. Greater investment is needed to get closer to the talent.

13.) 20 Jun 2024 06:58:50
Yet Arteta has won just the 1 FA cup in his 5 seasons there, by which point Klopp had won Champs League and EPL with us just buying “potential”.

One thing that winds me up is how Arsenal/ Arteta don’t called out for a what a throw away transfer policy they’ve had since he came in. It also took him far too long to realise what a talent his predecessor had signed in Saliba. Below is an update from Ed2 on Arsenal page about players who are available, look at the sheer volume of players signed by Arteta already no longer required. P@ss pooor transfer approach IMO:

Aaron Ramsdale (G) Ramsdale is stuck rather and needs to figure out his future with Arsenal. Wolves are very concerned about losing Sa and are keen to take Ramsdale to replace him but have other options. Milan are the same with Maignan. Newcastle may offer a good solution that will be of interest to the player.
Karl Hein (G) Free Agent in the summer.
Takehiro Tomiyasu (RB) Arsenal have been open to listening to offers for the player but would prefer a new contract else are seeking €35M which saw Inter step back. Could return and look to an exchange plus cash for Denzil Dumfries. Interest of Bayern Munich has been dropped.
Kieran Tierney (LB) Real Sociedad offer another loan option with an obligation to buy this time. Celtic may offer an option.
Nuno Tavares (LB) Will look for a new home in the Summer. Nottingham Forest not interested in taking up the option. Marseille spoke with Arsenal.
Aleksandr Zinchenko (LB) Arsenal will keep him unless they can get a good fee, but he is available and Arsenal have been looking at replacements. Newcastle offer a wildcard option.
William Saliba (CB) Real Madrid have scouted Saliba and spoken with his agent. But he is not first choice for them and likely further down the list of options. The player has always said he would like to move to PSG on day, but for now he stays.
Gabriel Magalhaes (CB) Arsenal rejected an approach from Juventus and another from Al-Ittihad last summer. I am not aware of any recent approaches. He will stay.
Jakub Kiwior (CB/ LB) Could be priced out of a move to Milan who may look to a loan to buy or to Napoli. Arsenal may block any move and look to giving assurances.
Cedric Soares (CB/ RB) No obvious future and could look elsewhere for opportunities when he becomes a Free Agent in the Summer. Besiktas and Villareal offer options. Has already left.
Mohammed Elneny (DM) Free Agent in the summer. Has left.
Thomas Partey (DM) Galatasaray and Fenerbahce have asked after his availability. Juventus interest has moved on. Middle East may be an option but the player is insistent on staying at Arsenal.
Albert Sambi Lokonga (DM) Arsenal will be open to letting him move on as part of the summer clear out. I am not aware of any approaches to Arsenal although his agents will be looking for options.
Jorginho (CM/ DM) Ahas agreed a further year at Arsenal after being given assurances.
Charlie Patino (CM) Perhaps another loan - again difficult to see where first team opportunities will come from. Agent looking to move him on and has been speaking to clubs in Italy but I am not aware of any interest.
Emile Smith-Rowe (CM) Wants to leave for more game time. Could be offered to Brentford as part of a part exchange deal for Toney. Brighton, Newcastle or Aston Villa may provide options but the player would likely not be interested. West Ham would like a loan to buy. Napoli interest has gone. A summer move seems possible unless Arsenal give him assurances.
Martin Odegaard (AM/ CM) PSG has a declared interest but he is not first choice. Arsenal will want to keep him so he stays.
Fabio Vieira (AM) Marseille and Monaco discussed a loan with Arsenal but Porto may well be interested in buying the player who Arsenal are happy to have move on.
Reiss Nelson (W) No future at Arsenal as anything other than a bit part player. Perhaps a loan to buy somewhere. Brighton may offer an option still if previous interest remains.
Marquinhos (W) A loan to Fluminense will end in December and then the club will consider options, but he will likely be sold in January.
Eddie Nketiah (S) If Arsenal can add Toney or another striker, EN will be allowed to leave. Leicester, Crystal Palace and Wolves may offer options. Brentford may be interested in a part exchange, but I doubt it. Fulham may offer a viable solution. All see the requested fee as too high.

14.) 20 Jun 2024 10:26:05
Big Shaq my guy, tell us how you really feel about Arteta and Arsenal transfer policy, lol. Seriously tho, I do agree with some of what you say and frankly, a lot of Arsenal fans also agree or at least, the ones that comment online.

IMO if Klopp had that many players who are not this good and were about to be offloaded, we would definitely be asking questions about his and the scouting teams transfer acumen. Just like we did with BR cos essentially, his transfer record is identical, IMO.

15.) 20 Jun 2024 22:20:33
ArAy, I'm not claiming to give meaningful football commentary.
I'm just giving my opinions and discussing our team. If you don't like it don't read or reply, it doesn't matter to me or anyone else.

I wouldn't call your expectation of us winning the quadruple as drivel and I replied with a jokey post about us never having done it before. I didn't mean to upset you but I genuinely don't expect us to win the League.



14 Jun 2024 17:57:18
Why do people say . get rid of gomez etc to bring money in to help with new players . when u need to replace a very good player who can play numerous positions that'll cost more money to replace . yet some say keep salah n let him go for free next year . losing upto 100 mill. I love salah . but he 31/ 32.might be going the Olympics, hasn't played as good as he used to. surely 100 mill is better than the 20 odd mill for gomez . I know he's a legend but can't afford to do that can we.


1.) 14 Jun 2024 19:03:35
Not the Gomez discussion again, flogging a dead horse with this discussion.

2.) 14 Jun 2024 19:19:12
nobody is paying 100 million for Salah when he can be persuaded to sign for free next summer. Also Salah is not finished or anything, he was rushed from injury by Klopp and was taking pain killers to play! He'll bang 25-30 goals again next season. How many assists did Joe Gomez get from RB and LB?

3.) 14 Jun 2024 20:52:07
Mcgov. if u don't loke it . scroll past . simple . Fisketprett. but salah won't be scoring 25/ 30 this season . n then he b off for nothing . Gomez came on done great in every position he played . how many goals did he prevent.

4.) 14 Jun 2024 18:39:31
At the end of the day we all have opinions and I think it’s ok to express them but it’s only down to the board to decide. If slot has an idea and that involves selling Gomez then am backing slot.

5.) 14 Jun 2024 21:24:37
It is being done to death tho.

6.) 14 Jun 2024 22:06:02
If u say so june.

7.) 14 Jun 2024 22:39:08
It's okay, as long as it's just an opinion. ?.

8.) 14 Jun 2024 23:41:52
We’ve seen the best of gomez so if someone’s interested in him for 20-25m then why not bring in someone younger and equally versatile such as geertruida or huijsen who will only develop and grow as a player.

9.) 15 Jun 2024 01:06:08
June is right, it has been done to death. It's got to a boring point. Let's just see what happens.

10.) 15 Jun 2024 04:32:44
Honestly there isn't anything new.

Keep coming here 5 to 6 times a day and nothing new.

Square Tomato used to give quality inputs on Joe. not seen him here for long.

nothing from Macca these days.

11.) 15 Jun 2024 06:55:37
Sami, square tomato was on the other week discussing Trents contract from memory. He hasn't mentioned Joe in a while, would be interesting if he could give an insight.

12.) 15 Jun 2024 08:03:01
It wasn’t so long ago that replying to someone’s thread, I suggested that Joe Gomez should be in the conversation for player of the season… and lots of people agreed. Yes he lost his playing time once Robertson was fit again, but he hadn’t let anyone down and I wasn’t worried at all when I saw his name on the team sheet. Is he the best left back in the world…. no! Will he do a really good job anywhere across the back 4… very much so. He is home grown and our longest serving player. You tell me a better 3rd, 4th, 5th choice (depending on who you listen to on here) home grown player in the prem, who can cover all the back 4 and is willing to come and sit on the bench for large parts of the season and I am all ears. If Joe wants to stay then I’m all for it.

13.) 15 Jun 2024 11:16:08
I have a gut feeling Salah will surprise everyone next season. I really hope he will.

14.) 15 Jun 2024 11:17:52
It's ok to want to keep or sell Gomez but don't compare him to Salah, please ?.

15.) 15 Jun 2024 11:55:35
Fisketprett, nobody signs for free. Mbappe signed for ‘free’ for Real Madrid but they paid him over £100m signing on fee to get him.

16.) 15 Jun 2024 12:26:37
Is Mo going to sign for Grimsby? That would be a surprise.

17.) 15 Jun 2024 15:38:54
Please can we move on from Gomez!



05 Jun 2024 18:55:51
Question for Ed1 really. just seen Phil Boresma chatting and comparing Shanks and
Paisley. he said were as Paisley won more trophies he couldn't have done what Shanks did, meaning drag us out of the 2nd division and make us the force that we were, he said he never had the personality n he wasn't a nice man . first time iv ever heard someone sayin he wasn't a nice man . always came across as humble but sure he was ruthless when he had to be . sure you have said you've had some dealings with his family. what's your views on it.


{Ed001's Note - I think he was meaning in terms of his ruthlessness. All Boersma seems to have done is say everyone is not a nice man. He said the same of Toshack as well. Boersma comes across as a very bitter man, blaming others for his own failings. He was moved on for not being good enough and is trying to make it seem like that was down to nastiness, rather than him just not being good enough.}

1.) 05 Jun 2024 22:16:12
Suppose it just depends on your opinion I suppose and what your dealings are with these people.
I used to work with someone who previously worked closely with king Kenny and she used to say he was horrible and miserable, the worst person she worked with at the club, Something I was very surprised at. I’ve met him a couple of times and he seemed alright to me if a little lacking in personality if I’m honest.
I’ve met Rafa several times over the years and it’s always for a couple of hours at a time and I’ve found him to be the friendliest, most down to earth person I’ve met from football, he will talk to you all day long about tactics if you want and he’s got the time and he’s very willing to help anyone in any way he can. But the other day I saw a YouTube video of an ex Liverpool player laying into him for being cold and unprofessional and I thought it’s a million miles away from the Rafa I know.

2.) 05 Jun 2024 23:44:34
You have to be ruthless to be a successful football manager in my opinion. You also have to be very demanding. It’s a high pressured emotional job.

Sometimes it’s hard to be nice all the time when you’re demanding more from people/ groups.

I know a fairly prominent employee of the club, been in the job a fair few years. I was taken aback when he said Klopp was not well-liked amongst a lot of staff.

But at the end of the day, these guys have to be demanding so I don’t expect them to be everyone’s mate at work. Outside of work I’m sure they’re different, but they’re so invested in work their out of work persona is suppressed.

Do you want to be David Brent? Everyone’s mate, totally garbage as a manager or do you want to be successful and effective?

3.) 05 Jun 2024 23:47:42
Yea your right Ed1.he said Toshack wasn't nice aswel. he does seem bitter . I remember he worked with Souness at Liverpool n that didn't work out aswel.

4.) 06 Jun 2024 07:50:00
What have you got against David Brent and his style of management? Oh my god. Are you Ron Swanson?

5.) 06 Jun 2024 08:32:41
Ron Swanson would make a great manager MK.

6.) 06 Jun 2024 22:26:51
Any leadership position in any aspect of life requires a certain set of skills. Positive ones. But I don't think popularity is one of them, even though it could be a low priority plus. I think it's more important for the leader to be respected and feared.



25 May 2024 11:02:02
I know people would be happy for Salah to stay. but I can't see our owners letting him run his contract down and leaving for nothing next year . I think that would be a big mistake, surely he got to sign a year extension or be sold.


1.) 25 May 2024 11:41:40
As a business point of view the best course of action would be to sell. I personally don't really give a damn about the money side of things but if we need to sell to buy then yeah, the right offer comes in then unfortunately he'd have to leave.

Only thing concerning me is, where do we get his goals and assists from next season? I know everyone is replaced at some point but Mane wasn't. I fear we could have an issue with scoring goals unless Slot really unlocks something with Nunez or buys someone who hits the ground running.

We have Jota but he can't be relied upon, he knows where the net is but is always injured. Diaz I see leaving. If we are selling to buy I am concerned. We don't have enough to get in what's needed and won't going on 1-2 sales. I just hope Slot is given time because I don't think it'll be easy to begin with. He will need a few transfer windows to be able to compete in my opinion especially if Diaz and Salah leave this summer.

I'm always wrong though, watch. Next season we'll go and win the league.

2.) 25 May 2024 11:46:56
The power is with Mo at the moment.

3.) 25 May 2024 11:55:33
I see the confidence on this page is sky high in relation to how Salah and his contributions can easily be replaced. its the same guys who told us all how Lallana, Lambert and Balotelli and change in formation would replace Suarez goals.
We couldn't replace Mane in the last 3 years never mind Salah.

4.) 25 May 2024 12:05:30
Tough one. Because of the mass changes off the pitch if we were to sell Salah we’d probably need a right winger and a new Striker to make up the goals.

The right answer usually would be to sell, but Edwards, Ward, the other guy, Slot, coaches, keeper coaches, plus all the squad changes. It might just be a little too much in one summer.

5.) 25 May 2024 13:01:34
The owners have zero say in the matter.

6.) 25 May 2024 13:05:53
Difficulty is that it’s clear that Salah’s legs have gone and his form tailed off massively at the end of last season, another huge contract puts us in the position Arsenal were in with Ozil and that was not a positive situation to have a player in his 30’s on a huge wage who was in visible decline. I think if a good offer comes in we have to take it. It does leave the question of how we replace the goals and assists, but that’s a lot easier to answer with a pocket full of cash.

7.) 25 May 2024 13:09:34
3 players who could be argued are 3 of our most important players are all in the same situation with the negotiation power in their hands.

All 3 would expect huge signing on fees if they chose to see out their contracts.

Not LFC related, but De Bruyne is also in the same situation over at City.

8.) 25 May 2024 13:28:07
Have we not replaced Mane though to a certain extent? Sadio averaged 15 league goals a season with us but started almost every game on the left wing. We still get that now its just the goals are spread more between diaz, gakpo and Jota. the sadio of the last couple of seasons was on the wane.

9.) 25 May 2024 13:54:44
I wouldn't say give him a 3 Yr contract but 1 year one to protect us. Upto 100 million is a lot of money to lose . I'd love him to stay but we're not Man City etc we need the funds.

10.) 25 May 2024 13:58:27
Exactly. Where is Mane now and how many goals
Is he scoring? We replaced him at the right time and now is the right time to replace Mo too.

11.) 25 May 2024 14:00:19
I think the great thing with Mane was that he was a big game player and scorer of important goals not only in the league but in the CL.

The players who have come in for him have done well but need to show that they can also do it when it’s needed the most.

12.) 25 May 2024 14:11:39
The front 5 scored over 80 goals between them this season, we’ve replaced Mane.

13.) 25 May 2024 14:45:17
Yeh, a one year extension would be perfect.

14.) 25 May 2024 14:58:51
In order for this team to evolve, Salah has to be sold.

His been awesome for us. Brilliant numbers but that Afcon injury took him a long time to recover, and he will never get quicker or clinical even with the new haircut.

His decline will be a hard watch and because i feel his a proud man, he will want to prove a point every match. And if he doesn't get selected, God help Slot.

Again, his been immense for us but it will make good business sense to sell him.

15.) 25 May 2024 15:07:09
Stromsgodset, there are many people who would NOT be happy to see Salah stay as we have seen such people air those exact people so to say "people" would be happy to see him stay as if there is a general consensus is wide off the mark, IMO.

For me, it's a tricky one and also, there is a lot of recency bias as well due to the way Salah has performed over the past few months sinc he came back from injury. Also, there is a world where Big Arne may need to have as many senior players as possible still in the dressing room to rely on their exeperience to navigate his first season or 2 at the club.

Hence if we must keep him, a 1 year extension like @JN said, would be the best case scenario. On the contrary, if we must sell then, Salah has to agree to rip up his final year and leave. At the end of the day, Salah has the final say.

16.) 25 May 2024 15:34:21
Burger King is dead right, why would clubs want to buy him when they can sign him for free next year?

The glazing of players not good enough is ridiculous sometimes. Sell
Vvd replaced him with vdb sell Trent and play ramsay, morton can replace thiago, beck can replace robbo it goes on and on and on
Like bk said it’s the same posters who said we could replace Suarez with balotelli and lambert

Replaced mane? Must be earthing a different team he was a diffeeet class, never seen a winger track back as much as he did as well as being a two footer genius, just because it never worked out at Bayern doesn’t make him a bad player just a bad fit.

17.) 25 May 2024 15:59:33
And no
I’m not saying these youngsters don’t deserve a chance but to throw them in deep end is crazy move, hope you guys understand English isn’t my prime language.

18.) 25 May 2024 17:23:40
I'm sure there is curiosity on both sides. Salah may want to see how he plays under Slot. And Slot may want to see how Salah plays under his tactics and system. So a 1 year extension suits everyone just fine.

19.) 25 May 2024 17:58:35
Your English is very good Colonel, don't worry about it mate :) .

20.) 25 May 2024 20:05:31
The thing that also has to be mentioned is the possibility of Salah playing for Egypt at the Olympic Games from July through to August. To me that means he’s already going to be knackered by the time the season starts.

21.) 25 May 2024 20:47:01
Just to clarify. Which Mane are we on about?
The shot one towards the end, or the 2018 Mane?
Because we have definitely not replaced that guy ?.

22.) 25 May 2024 22:12:18
A one year extension will mean he’s running down an extortionate 2 year contract instead of a 1 yr one.

It’s not a smart move.

If Salah wants to run down his contract an extension won’t protect us. If he doesn’t want to be sold it’s just tough.

Probably a good decision by Salah, just not great for LFC.

23.) 25 May 2024 22:54:29
Throw any stat at me all you want but we have not replaced Manè. Nunez, Gakpo and Diaz can’t lace his boots.

24.) 26 May 2024 08:35:05
@VV, our pre-season games will probably have more intensity than the Olympics’ games.

25.) 26 May 2024 12:48:36
Yup. Right. We've replaced Mané. At 3 times the purchase cost, and 3 times the wages to be paid. Since we're supposed to be content with the 3 guys (Diaz, Gakpo and Nunez) who are giving us Mané's goal production.

Sure, we're not supposed to get into the finances. But if you don't consider that in your assessments, then we'll end up back to being mid table has-beens pretty soon once again.



19 May 2024 22:33:00
My thoughts about today, while it was a very sad day to see the legend that is Klopp leave. it was also a beautiful day. Great atmosphere, sunshine, a 2 nil win, so much love around the club . the ex manager making a new song for the new manager, that's why I love this club n football in general . Looking forward to next season with new man at the helm.


1.) 19 May 2024 22:55:33
I liked the fact he said get behind Slot. Hopefully it’s a case of meet the new boss, the same as the old boss.

2.) 20 May 2024 00:16:52
I wouldn't swap our time with Klopp for more trophies. We won pretty much everything under him anyway and each trophy meant a lot.

I liked the rollercoaster and the emotion rather than watching machine.

Today's speech will live long in my memory.

3.) 20 May 2024 02:02:25
Agreed Davey, I'll be rewatching that moment for a few days I think mate. Loved the speech.

4.) 20 May 2024 03:43:13
The speech was special, I have already rewatched it three times.
Cried like a baby the first time, he is unbelievable as a man, and a manager, Jürgen Norbert Klopp you are a legend!
The song epitomises the man, he was all about the club, the team and the city.
Love Him.

Difference between the stats on Nunez n Watkins is . we play by far a more attacking play. a really good striker should have a lot more goals for us . look at salah not a natural striker but bangs them in . take Watkins all day.

I wouldn't say random names bein pulled out. I'd say the 3 leading candidates are all in demand and its possible we might not get any of them. so always good to hear about other managers being spoke about.

MK . how we going ro afford a top class replacement for Salah next season, when Salah goes on a free, if he goes now . we get a decent fee for him 50 mill plus . I don't get this let players run their contracts down . I keep hearing we're not loyal fans if we want him gone if he doesn't sigh extention etc, Ed002 has said he would have went years ago if he could have got his dream move.
