ESPN claiming that Liverpool have an interest in Brighton's Yves Bissouma.

If there's any truth to that, it means curtains for Gini and Keita.
Keita is surplus anyways (Jones has effectively taken up his spot) while Bissouma would be the Gini replacement.


2.) 19 Dec 2020 08:26:46
There’s an awful lot of Gini replacements about?
First it was Thiago, then Jones and now maybe this guy 😃
on Wijnaldum’s situation but it does feel like there could be some considerable squad surgery carried out next Summer.

* on Wijnaldum’s situation.


4.) 19 Dec 2020 09:49:02
Julian Draxler and David Alabaster both out of contract in the summer are more likely targets for me.


5.) 19 Dec 2020 12:22:28
Draxler is c**p and Alaba's wage demands are astronomical. No thank you to both.
Also, we need to start signing players in their early twenties rather than players at their peak or towards the end of their peak years. Maybe Lille's precarious financial situation can be used to sign some very talented young players they have got for cheap prices (Sven Botman, Jonathan David, Soumare etc) .


6.) 19 Dec 2020 12:32:48
That David Alabaster would be a real rock in the middle of the park.


7.) 19 Dec 2020 16:13:56

8.) 19 Dec 2020 23:39:19
I wouldn't sign Alabaster. Read that he's always plastered.

According to James Pearce we are only paying 10% of the Jota fee now, about £4 million, and we’ve only paid £5 million upfront for Thiago. So we’ve added Jota and Thiago this season for £9 million.
That’s excellent business.

1.) 19 Sep 2020 05:54:48
How good is that! Both top buys. Loving how we are doing these deals. Its like leasing these players yr on yr. Can we lease koulibally now as well? 🤣🤣🤣.


2.) 19 Sep 2020 06:53:03
FYI, Jota beat Trent in the ePremier League Invitation Final - so we now have a champion in eSport.

4.) 19 Sep 2020 09:18:26
It's amazing business and and Edward's masterclass. However, how many fans will forget that we are still paying these deals off in future windows and complain that FSG aren't backing Klopp with any money or can't understand that we can win prize money but can't spend it.


5.) 19 Sep 2020 09:39:10
Trying not to put a negative spin on things but it's worth considering that paying such a small amount up front might have a negative effect of future transfer windows, the still has to be paid somewhere down the line and it could potentially be worse financially next Summer (no gate receipts, circa £84 million of the bottom line) . Just saying like.


6.) 19 Sep 2020 10:17:22
It's a fair point about future finances, but with this squad right now we might not need anyone next summer.
We've assembled a well equipped squad.


7.) 19 Sep 2020 11:01:38
Unless we have any horrendous injuries or big out goings, I expect the next 12 months to be very quiet in terms of transfers, but that's okay. The only thing we really need now is a CB. We've strengthened the attack with Minamino and Jota, and our MF is looking pretty stacked with the likes of Grujic and Thiago. Defense is pretty good and we got cover for Robbo. All in all looking like a very well rounded squad.

{Ed002's Note - Grujic won't be part of it - he is one of they players who has to leave.}


8.) 19 Sep 2020 15:59:47
With deals like this. I think they are taking into account C.V.. Sala. mane will be gone next year and jota hopefully with fill the boots. IMO dembele will be looked at as a loan to see if he can fill the gap.


9.) 20 Sep 2020 02:43:39
The likely pattern is that over next few years we will continue to strenghten our financial growth and this summer needed us to manage our spending efficiently so the fact we could still add 2 top players and not need to pay any substantial amount over next 12 months is the best deal possible. Surely we won't be as restricted in future years to struggle with paying those instalments that will hopefully turn out to be bargain buys as those 2 players bring us the quality that we often see clubs spending much more to add similar rated quality.


10.) 20 Sep 2020 08:14:42
Can see Sarr being brought in as well at some point, in prep for the boys to move on, which would be totally fair after 4 years good service. I wonder if Mbappe would dare choose us over Real.

It’s odd that there is an obvious reason for the massive drop off this season yet people keep looking for other reasons. We have been dealing with horrendous injuries all season. Liverpool have 7 players who have missed 10+ league games this season, comparatively Manchester City have 1 player who has missed 10+ league games this season.
Yes there were poor performances even when everyone was fit but this team was top of the league not so long ago, we didn’t look ‘not hungry’ when Firmino was planting that header past Lloris.
No team in the world could cope with the injuries we have had, look at the drop off from Man City last season when they lost just one player, Laporte. The fact is this team has really struggled in the past 6 weeks because we are missing some of our best players and the rest of the lads have had to play virtually every game, they look tired.

Thunderbird 2

1.) 06 Feb 2021 19:43:34
Tried to post pretty much the same earlier and I couldn’t agree more!


2.) 06 Feb 2021 19:49:28
These constant excuses must stop. They are of course reasons but we still should be beating Burnley, WBA, Fulham etc. WBA and Fulham are championship level. The players are sometimes using the injuries as excuses instead of looking after their own performance levels. Klopp has made many mistakes this season as well. If he knew the midfield was exhausted why is Jones not starting, for an example.


3.) 06 Feb 2021 20:09:25
The injury and tiredness argument would work if we weren't struggling almost exclusively against bottom half opposition. It's very easy to motivate yourself for a big game and a lot less easy when you are expected to win comfortably. We've looked perfectly fine against City, United, Arsenal, Everton, Chelsea, Leicester, Spurs, Wolves and West Ham. We have 27 points from a possible 33 against those sides. Hardly strikes me that injuries are significantly affecting the quality of the XI we can put out. Clubs have 30 man squads nowadays when you consider all the u21's they don't have to register. We had plenty of injuries last season. The only real difference is the knee injuries to the 2 guys at the back. Thiago and Jota missed significant game time but no more than Lallana and Shaqiri did last year. Matip, Ox and Keita miss most of every season.

So you must think it's just a massive coincidence the players only seem to be tired against teams we're expected to beat? I fully expect us to go out tomorrow and give City a game because the players don't need motivating in a games like this. I'm pretty sure the only top 10 team who have beaten us are Aston Villa and they did so very early in the season when everyone believed they would be relegated having only stayed up courtesy of Michael Oliver's broken watch.

I get it. You think the 13 points from 33 against lesser opposition is purely a coincidence we were tired those days and we have no issues getting up for the perceived lesser teams. Look man, i respect that you disagree. But all you're really saying is that you think the other 20+ players in our squad aren't good enough to cope without the 8 guys who are injured. The only difference between me and you is that I think they are good enough, but that we aren't mentally at it this season as a collective. Agree to disagree.


4.) 06 Feb 2021 20:15:53
What excuse mark we’ve los 5/ 7 starters a game take that from Utd Everton city and it’s the same it’s not a excuse it’s a fact mate your fringe players become your main players and so on can u not see that!


5.) 06 Feb 2021 20:28:48
It’s not even just the players were missing due to injuries, the team is completely disjointed due to losing Hendo and Fabinho from midfield. It must be demoralising for the players. We haven’t got a god forgiven right to beat everyone just because we are Liverpool.

Stick by the team and let’s get through this together.


6.) 06 Feb 2021 21:09:25
It’s not a full team of fringe player. Your favourite Thiago has been playing so have normally at least 2 of the front 3. Trent, Robbo. It’s half the first team normally plus 5 so called second string. But why can’t they play better against really poor sides? Fulham and wBA are rubbish at best. Why can’t our squad get more points against the rubbish sides? Many sides have had injuries but have much smaller squads than ours. Stop the excuses.


7.) 06 Feb 2021 21:27:30
Absolutely spot on Plymouth Red.


8.) 06 Feb 2021 22:39:56
Who is talking about a god given right? We are talking about getting some points against the bottom sides. We had to hang in there until some players regained fitness.

Some players haven’t been upto the job, some players aren’t as good as many thought and Klopp for whatever reasons doesn’t play Jones or Taki and the lb we bought they can’t get him upto speed.

In addition why didn’t so sort a cb much earlier at the beginning of the window? We have to look what we can and must do better not keep going over the same excuses we all know what they are.

The self styled mentally monsters need to step up.


9.) 06 Feb 2021 22:48:17
Mark Thiago isn’t doing what he can do because he’s coming back to Collect the ball he’s doing defensive duties He’s making rash challenges trying to be defensive that’s not his game! Our whole team is unbalanced! I get it annoyed dropping points at lower teams so are we all!
But I’ll answer back to the fringe player quote! Williams Jones shaq Philips ox origi wtc are nvr staters for us nvr will they be apart from the crisis we have! On top of that your 2 best centres are playin CBS’s so the defence is unstable hence AR and TAA bombing and staying forward Is flawed! So a team weakend by injuries is playing fringe players to cope! There’s lads on the bench now who I bet your even sayin who the f#%k is he! Injuries have done us and done us bad pal same players Wk in Wk out and they are shattered! Give it a rest u got a league title it’s a poxy season and year many will want to forget some died happy knowing we won it!


10.) 06 Feb 2021 23:27:46
Mark, we’re struggling because we can no long pin teams in their own half without Henderson and Fabinho in midfield. Teams don’t fear us anymore. We’ll see the best of Thiago once he’s got Fabinho and Henderson with him.

{Ed0666's Note - hopefully tommorow


11.) 07 Feb 2021 07:35:55
I agree with that Plymouth, I think everyone does. But whatever the circumstances we should never struggle v a side like WBA or Fulham. I agree Ed let’s get the pair in midfield tomorrow and get right after City.


12.) 07 Feb 2021 11:19:06
Mark, u ere nitpicking and choosing only one part of the problem to explain the bigger picture, which I find disingenuous and convenient.

This may be foreign to you but big teams struggle with bottom half teamsprinters teams adopting low block tactics, all the time. City struggled with it in the past two seasons (and this season) when teams like Saints, Palace, Wolves (twice) Utd (twice), Leicester, Spurs (Spurs and Leicester were this season) and so on. City lost all these games by the way and they did not have half their starting team out in any of these games btw. Utd, Arsenal, Spurs do as well with these teams and tactics at times.

You have to look at the big picture and you simply cannot make an argument that regardless if of the unprecedented amount of first team injuries we have, we should not be struggling vs these teams or those that low block us. We are a well oiled machine BUT with as many missing pieces out as we have, it is simply impossible to operate said machine at 100% vs these teams/ tactics every time. In fact, Any team with half the injuries to their first 11 would struggle already so why are you judging the team with such a high bar that you prolly know they can never meet?

As for digging out Thiago, are you going to act like you don’t know he is coming back from a dreadful injury and playing the 6 which is not his best position due to again, injuries or Fab and Hendo missing in midfield or is Thiago now your knew whipping boy after you left Bobbie alone for a while?

Either way, our issues have been well described here and in this thread slander we all know what the fundamental cause is. This is not complicated and you digging out players trying their best in a difficult situation won’t change the real cause of our issues.

Well done to PSG and Istanbul Basaksehir for walking off the pitch after racist comments from the 4th official. Hopefully this sort of embarrassment finally brings some meaningful action from UEFA.

{Ed0666's Note - I willing to bet my wife and my car that UEFA go easy on the linesman.


1.) 09 Dec 2020 08:38:02
A certain John Barnes has a different view on this over on Twitter. He's kind of got a point but it depends on us knowing for definite what was actually said.


2.) 09 Dec 2020 09:21:58
Sheffield United have a better chance beating us at anfield this season than uefa inflicting proper punishment on the official. Tbh the way they deal with clubs is appalling so I'd actually feel sorry for the official if they dealt with him harshly as it will only be in response to uproar.


3.) 09 Dec 2020 09:54:53
@johnnyr1970 I had a look at that twitter thread and it has some interesting points of view. I have been travelling for more than 15 years now and I feel there is still so much I can learn about this topic.


4.) 09 Dec 2020 10:35:00
Andros, John is always very vocal in his opposition to racism on social media - rightly so - but the point he makes in his thread today is correct in my opinion. Given how much racist abuse he faced in his playing career then I'm happy to agree with him on this specific issue. A lot of people don't it would appear.


5.) 09 Dec 2020 13:24:06
I think John would make a good point if the fourth officials language was different. If you were to describe the only white fella in a crowd of black people would it be ok to refer to him as "the white guy"? Likewise the only black fella in a crowd of white people would it be ok to describe him as "the black guy"? However using the word negro which he did is obviously a different kettle of fish. The fact that both teams took exception to it and stood together shows it wasn't right and we should probably listen instead of excuse making. The Suarez debacle should at least have taught us that.


6.) 09 Dec 2020 14:02:49
OP, this is what needs to happen. The solidarity shown here by both teams (PSG have a ton of black players on their teams so that helps) is what MUST happen. Talk is cheap. Slogans and bumper stickers are nice BUT it is only by big and bold actions, that racism will be stamped out of football. Some people do not understand dialogue and consensus. They only understand consequences and in other case punishment, period.

If UEFA want to go easy on the official then, let them do it. I doubt cos the world is watching and they may just make an example of him due to that. If they go easy on him then, they are rewarding bad behavior and their whole anti-racism campaign ain't worth the paper or bumper sticker it is written on. Just my take.


7.) 09 Dec 2020 14:28:09
Personally - my opinion - if someone called me a white guy if I was stood with a few black guys then I'd kind of expect it because it's the most obvious differentiator.

The guy last night used the Romanian word for black. I have serious doubts that his intent was to be racist, however he will be hung out to dry for it. It's the same with the Cavani issue, it's just a non story over cultural/ language differences and all the noise over it masks the true racism issues.


8.) 10 Dec 2020 11:18:04
Johnnyr1970, The officials are instructed to speak English during game communication to anyone as in, players and officials. Why did he use the word Negru (which is Negro, the foundation word of the N word used during slavery) when he was supposed to speak English?

That word is a derogatory word cos it has been used in a demeaning, offensive and denigrating word to address black people for centuries. You may think Barnes has a point BUT he does not. People experience racism in multiple forms so I do not need Barnes to explain to me how I experience racism. Neiter does Pierre Webo, the assistant coach and the victim in this instance. Webo and myself, are capable of doing that ourselves, thank you very much.

Pierre Webo played in La Liga for years so I would defer to him on this issue and how players were racially abused at the time he played there. Apart from his opinion, John Barnes has nothing else to teach him. That is what you seem to be unable to grasp.

Furthermore, why would you address a person in his official capacity 5assistant coach or whatever) based on the color of his skin? That is the height of disrespect for the position he holds and just reducing him to being "just the black guy" is insulting in of itself. Again, another concept you do not understand. I dare you to go address a black man in his official capacity as just "the black guy" at your job and see what happens to you.

OP, they were never going to do that and that is fine. What I don't accept is that they half-heartedly tried to defend the VAR operator for not thinking that such a despicable, reckless and dangerous challenge was worthy of a red card, is what I cannot fathom. Not that I cannot fathom cos I think they already know they cannot defend it.

Do u think he is up too it? No assists all season, 1 belter vs Leicester . If we were too get him I hope he could slot in and do a solid job .

{Ed0666's Note - I think he has the potential to be very good. He played well against us at the beginning of the season I was impressed.

I was always impressed whenever I saw him play, Klopp could mould him into something very good.

I would not mind Lewis to be fair cos he and Max Aarons were very good for Norwich last season and were already highly rated from their days in the Championship before the got promoted.

There are some very disrespectful comments about the Scottish league on here, football does exist outside of England.
Gerrard has his team flying both domestically and in Europe. What more can he do up there? Another couple of seasons like this at Rangers and I would welcome him at Liverpool.
It's hilarious that people say Gerrard needs to prove himself whilst also saying Linders should get the job.
