Eds, seen us linked with Gelson Bremer of Torino in the press a few times recently - anything in this? Wasn't sure we need another CB at the moment unless someone is moving on perhaps.


{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}

1.) 13 Apr 2022 11:26:00
I can see Gomez leaving for Villa so that he gets to play. I also see a need for an elite CB who can challenge the rest. Gomez is not that suited to our system, and is unlucky w injuries. I like the look of Bremer, but it appears he has chosen Inter.
Wonder why we bid for Demiral and then didn't go for him once he became available.

2.) 13 Apr 2022 12:29:18
Would have thought Gomez was perfect for our system.

3.) 13 Apr 2022 12:58:48
How is Gomez not suited to our system he's perfect for it. rapid and decent on the ball.

4.) 13 Apr 2022 14:10:43
I think that Ed1 said once that it’s cos he’s not good in the air which is needed for the high line.

5.) 13 Apr 2022 14:25:09
What about either of the centre half’s from Burnley. Ben mee and Tarkowski spelling 🤣. remember when they were highly thought of 👍👍.

6.) 13 Apr 2022 16:33:06
Can imagine dem 2 defending near d halfway line alrite! Gomez on the other hand is nearly as quick as Virg.

7.) 13 Apr 2022 17:35:33
Gomez isn't suited to our system?
Baffled by that to be honest.

8.) 13 Apr 2022 18:38:07
Gomez should be playing next to VVD. Klopp has that wrong imo. Gomez would cover the area Trent leaves much better than Matip. And of course Matip is the deflection own goal king. Matip has been good but not as good as Gomez was in the title winning season and of course Gomez could be playing in our side for the next 10 years.

9.) 13 Apr 2022 19:43:03
I've got the faintest suspicion that this Klopp fella know what he's doing.

10.) 14 Apr 2022 01:56:10
Spot on Flash. Best manager in the world, yet all the experts here know better than him, lol.

11.) 14 Apr 2022 09:49:03
Gomez isn't good enough he's a ball watcher. the only thing that bails him out is his pace. Virgil doesn't need pace he's always in the right position. thast thetype of cb we need, not a recovering CB.

12.) 14 Apr 2022 11:25:58
I thought Matip was the ball watcher who is constantly caught out with balls over the top. I don't get where this dislike for Gomez comes from - before his injury him and VVD were the main CB partnership and he didn't put a foot wrong. Personally, I still think Gomez is a better CB than Matip and Konate.

13.) 14 Apr 2022 15:41:52
Totally agree, he needs games, is England best CB when MATCH fit and can assist like Trent too and at one point was the fastest in the team. One hell of a player.

14.) 14 Apr 2022 17:51:37
Centre backs generally need pace in our system due to the high line they defend with (Matip possibly being a slight exception) . And I see Van Dijk using his pace on a regular basis, if he didn't we'd be conceding a damned sight more than we are now.

15.) 14 Apr 2022 19:58:05
Hi ed. do we have any attention on Lovro Majer? Appreciate for your thoughts. thank you.

{Ed002's Note - No, this is just another random player.}

16.) 14 Apr 2022 20:02:50
If Gomez played for another top European side and was available, everyone on here would be screaming for his signature. Top player in my opinion.

17.) 15 Apr 2022 10:11:51
I agree with Stuie, Gomez is our 2nd best CB and perfectly suited to our system, letting him go would be a huge mistake.

18.) 15 Apr 2022 19:15:06
Games stays IMO. Really quick and covers two positions well. The highline typically needs someone stronger in the air on paper, which matip offers, but JG isn't exactly bad either. I'd prefer recovery pace, especially going up against teams that try to pass through the back line.

19.) 16 Apr 2022 11:34:22
Gomez is a top player and his pace means he can play the high line we want very well. Honestly hope he stays as I see him and Konate as our cb partnership for years to come.

20.) 18 Apr 2022 00:02:13
I honestly think Gomez doesn’t get played purely because of his height. Being a top team means that teams target set pieces as their most realistic chance of scoring and Matip and Konate are better at defending them with their height and aerial ability.
Gomez did us proud in the title winning season he was outstanding and if he does leave I’m sure he will be again. Good luck to him.

21.) 20 Apr 2022 09:24:58
Do not think Gomez is aggressive enough in the air for us. With liverpool's high line and pressing up front, teams will lump it up, so you need the CB's and DM to be dominant in the air and while Gomez might not be weak in that area, he's behind others.



25 Mar 2022 14:38:50
Just reading that Leeds are looking to buy Ryan Kent from Rangers, fee mentioned is £20m. Any of the Eds know whether there is a sell-on clause from when we sold him to Rangers? Could be a nice boost (or pay Salah's new wage for a couple of weeks) .


{Ed002's Note - Kent's TMS listing has a sell on clause identified on a sliding scale. It seems unlikely anyone would pay £20M for him. It is hard to see Leeds having a need for him.}

1.) 25 Mar 2022 18:08:43
Jaysus are be scraping the barrel we need to be looking for a sell on clause he’s not worth 5m.

2.) 25 Mar 2022 22:20:23
@Jay, some call it scrapping the barrel, some call it sound business sense.

3.) 26 Mar 2022 02:48:43
Jay won’t even pay for Sky Sports yet Liverpool are the ones scraping the barrel 😭.

4.) 26 Mar 2022 04:18:42
I wouldn't pay for Sky Sports either. Scumbag channel.

5.) 26 Mar 2022 04:21:00
If scraping the barrel means getting 1m more . I am for scrapping my life.

6.) 26 Mar 2022 12:23:03
Jay why is he not worth that Leeds payed £15m for Dan James and he is worse than awful.

7.) 26 Mar 2022 15:21:02
James is doing his best in the epl! Scottish league is below championship level in my opinion.

8.) 26 Mar 2022 18:22:00
VVD must be crap aswell then having played for Celtic, tierney aswell?

9.) 26 Mar 2022 19:50:03
Jay Kent did not look to bad against Dortmund don’t think I have seen James play good once for Leeds or Utd loads of pace and that’s it.

10.) 27 Mar 2022 03:31:28
I don’t watch a lot of Scottish football but I have never thought Kent has stood out for Rangers, I would be amazed if someone would pay £20m for him.

11.) 27 Mar 2022 04:17:39
Kent’s value isn’t really the point.

It is more a case of our revenue streams have been seriously disrupted over the past couple of years and a person who isn’t shy at saying that the club has no money and that the owners won’t spend is saying the club shouldn’t be ars#d trying to make money out of a sell on clause. Just seems strange to me.



08 Jan 2022 12:04:14
Spurs looking to bid for Traore according to the press today chaps. That should put that one to bed unless Klopp wants to push the boat out for his alleged obsession 😂.


1.) 08 Jan 2022 12:24:53
If klopps and conte's reportes interest is true its mad how little both know about football. I honestly think some fans living at home in there Mothers attic could do a better job than these overpaid overhyped ciaches sometimes.

2.) 08 Jan 2022 12:32:47
They can have him.
My main concern is Villa want Bissouma now. We’re going to miss some very big targets if the club don’t start selling and spending. He’s one player I think we are in need of. Midfield looks tired and is ageing or not working or both.

3.) 08 Jan 2022 14:10:52
Brighton to Villa would be a step up but not to the extent of moving to Liverpool and playing under Klopp would be. I’m sure (might be wrong) but Bissouma’s preference would surely be Liverpool and Klopp.

But the problem is Brightons preference would probably be 50 mill in cash from Villa over milk tokens paid over 60 months by Liverpool.

4.) 08 Jan 2022 14:29:22
I would no point for a player to move from Brighton to Villa except for more money. A step up, but not enough to warrant the move unless its for money imo.

5.) 08 Jan 2022 15:26:39
And yet we saw a 31yr old leave Madrid and the champs Lge yesterday for a relegation fight on sunny Týneside.

6.) 08 Jan 2022 15:32:39
Liverpool might be a bigger step up but we haven’t bud so it’s a mute point, Villa will be a good team given time and it’s a step up from Brighton.

7.) 08 Jan 2022 16:57:04
Tripper wanted to leave and come back to England. I fail to see the comparison.

8.) 08 Jan 2022 17:16:17
Ok, he would have swapped Madrid and champs lge under Simeone for that Newcastle side before the saudi's arrived witheir chequebook. At his age its not even as if he's going to see trophies there. He'll probably be relegated in May. Mattress b fulla nice cash though.

9.) 08 Jan 2022 17:23:27
Jason Havertz, sure, you know better than Klopp. Dream on, and keep playing FIFA.

10.) 08 Jan 2022 17:36:58
I knew there'd be one😆.

11.) 08 Jan 2022 18:19:29
Aye but you had to wait 5 hours Jadon. All the same, there's always one.

12.) 08 Jan 2022 19:07:36
Maybe there was no suitors for tripper until Newcastle owners ce in. I mean ots a pretty good fit. They need to upgrade and he is experienced.

13.) 08 Jan 2022 19:33:45
Bored Irish, the highlight of my day😆.

14.) 08 Jan 2022 21:29:28
Klopp as also hinted he won't sign unvaccinated players.

15.) 09 Jan 2022 03:21:43
I may be wrong here but wasn’t it said (by Ed02 maybe - but I stand to be corrected) that Bissouma preferred Arsenal as a destination when a few of us were getting into a tizzy in the summer transfer window?

16.) 09 Jan 2022 10:54:21
Maybe Aresnal won't prefer him tho WDW?



17 Nov 2018 07:22:53
Eds, what do you make of these Fabinho to PSG/ AC/ Juventus that keep cropping up? Seems a bit odd after such a short spell but ties in with the talk about him being unhappy on Merseyside.


{Ed001's Note - really does it? Or is it the same nonsense which he has publicly said is nonsense?}

1.) 17 Nov 2018 10:34:16
Exactly, nonsense. Mate they print/ type bullsh*t when there's bugger all else to talk about, why? Because too many people believe what the media say so they know they'll get the views lol its daft mate, pay no attention to that utter crap.



04 Feb 2017 13:25:32
Any legs in the Handanovic to Liverpool rumours Eds?


{Ed002's Note - I don't know but if Mignolet were to leave in the summer and Handanovic were happy to be a back up to Karius perhaps. It would obviously mean the end for Ward if that happened.}

09 May 2022 14:02:17
Anyone who watches a lot do games seen any players from the clubs likely to get relegated that might fit in well at Liverpool and that we might get for a more sensible price where a club has gone down? Apologies in advance if this sounds a bit mean of course! I'm thinking of players who might become another Andy Robertson obviously!


1.) 09 May 2022 14:26:38
Ismaila Sarr if Origi, TM and one of the front 5 leave.

2.) 09 May 2022 14:36:12
Maxwel Cornet. Klopp likes a Swiss Army knife type footballer and he can play left back, left wing, left midfield and as a centre forward. Plus he thought he was on loan at Burnley. Apparently was gutted to find out that he couldn’t go back to the South of France.

Ismaila Sarr, been looked at before as a Mane replacement.

Raphinha, same as Sarr.

3.) 09 May 2022 14:36:50
Calvert Lewin looks half decent.

4.) 09 May 2022 15:08:41
Everton are staying up Rigsby.

5.) 09 May 2022 16:14:15
That young lad, Nathan Collins of Burnley looks quite good every time I've seen him play. Rb or cb position. A very good option for a very promising player.

6.) 09 May 2022 16:43:57
Sarr and raphina (little concern over his temperament after yesterday's game, but perhaps just wearing his heart on his sleeve) like the look of that weghorst at Burnley. seems to of hit the ground running since joining in January but not our quality at 29. Cornet as some1 already posted is pretty decent. if burnley go down obviously. can't see any1 from Norwich.

7.) 09 May 2022 17:44:51
That ronaldo looks orite, he’s bound to be relegated next season.

8.) 09 May 2022 17:54:49
Looks like we might need a Mane replacement.

9.) 09 May 2022 18:20:30
Course they are, Larry; I was joking, mate.

10.) 09 May 2022 18:38:29
Decent shouts so far, thanks folks 👍.

11.) 09 May 2022 18:44:28
Whys that JK23? More like Serge Gnarbys agent met with Bayern.

12.) 09 May 2022 18:56:27
A Mane replacement, hmmm there are many options. I'd take a punt at nkoku.

13.) 09 May 2022 19:09:59
Raphina - Leeds or Dwight McNeil - Burnley.

14.) 09 May 2022 20:16:50
Dwight McNeil I would rather have Stewart Downing back on the left. Fxxx it get mark walters back on the right.

15.) 09 May 2022 20:38:22
Dwight McNeill Is very mediocre at best.

16.) 09 May 2022 21:49:04
Swapping Sadio Mane for Dwight McNeil would be the biggest downgrade since Suarez/ Lambert 😂.

17.) 10 May 2022 09:58:12
Sarr and Raphinha, for me.



05 Dec 2021 15:22:31
Not strictly Liverpool related Eds but as we have a number of important players involved - do you have any thoughts or info as to whether AFCON will still go ahead given the new variant of this pesky sickness and the travel bans we are seeing?


{Ed002's Note - As it stands Confederation of African Football responded to concerns raised by the European Club Association that there are no issues in Cameroon so it should be fine.}

1.) 05 Dec 2021 16:05:30
Africa is a big place it’s Southern Africa that’s effected and the new variant has killed zero and has 1% chance of rec.v. for unvaccinated so why would they cancel? They could catch C.V. going to the supermarket!

2.) 05 Dec 2021 16:22:12
Erm, let’s see, maybe because there will be thousands of fans travelling between African countries, many of whom won’t be vaccinated as the rates over there are extremely low, along with hundreds of football players and their entourage from countries across Europe who will all then need to go back home to their home base.

Oh, and as they only discovered it about 10 days ago it seems a bit premature to talk about zero deaths….

3.) 05 Dec 2021 19:59:46
Andy I think the worry would be the amount of tests being taken across Africa will be minimal compared to Europe so your not going to find out people have it if your not being tested regularly.

4.) 05 Dec 2021 21:57:27
10 days 0 deaths is better than either of the original C.V. variants…. and how do we know it’s not been longer than 10 days? These things don’t just appear it’s been going on longer than 10 days.

5.) 05 Dec 2021 23:00:01
Come on. See the game that is being played. Almost everyone will announce lower economic numbers and growth rates. Worldwide. And up comes along a variant that can be blamed for it. Simple.



02 Jun 2021 22:08:20
Looks like Konate joined at the right time, going to need Gomez at right back for the start of next season. I hate international football.


1.) 02 Jun 2021 22:19:38
Very much doubt Gomez will be fit in time.

2.) 02 Jun 2021 22:24:01
TAA should be back for the start of the season, but will probably miss the Euros. Pointless friendlies eh?

3.) 02 Jun 2021 22:38:03
The new season is two months away. Calm down!

4.) 02 Jun 2021 22:47:15
Remember when everyone was crying that Southgate had to select him for the squad? No point getting upset that he got injured playing for that squad.

5.) 02 Jun 2021 22:50:14
I did think he’d Played a lot of games this season.

6.) 02 Jun 2021 22:52:52
Really gutted for the lad. He was so looking forward to playing in the Euros. Hope he recovers soon.

7.) 02 Jun 2021 22:58:55
Only looks like a thigh injury so unless he’s literally ripped it in half then i don’t see why we should be worried about him being ready for next season, especially considering he walked off the pitch. Should be thankful it doesn’t appear to be more serious a la Sturridge and Gomez. England constantly take our players and send them back with career ruining injuries. I’d rather Henderson pulled a sicky and swerved the waistcoat wally right off.

8.) 02 Jun 2021 23:12:45
What's he done?

9.) 03 Jun 2021 00:06:02
shame for him if he misses the euros. we have a decent squad tho which is the real strength we have.

10.) 03 Jun 2021 08:12:59
@Thunderbird2 - of course the new season is 2 months away but for TAA that could now mean 4-6 weeks recovery and then another 4-6 weeks to build up to match fitness rather than having some kind of break and being ready to go in August.

Still baffles me why they had to have the Euros given how every league had been impacted by the C.V. - money over sense obviously.

11.) 03 Jun 2021 09:04:37
Well if he isn't playing in the Euros then he will have all the break he wants, too much probably.
Also without his injury diagnosis how do you know it could take up to 12 weeks to recover?
Come on, its just nonsense at the moment. Let's wait and see what is said before we get our knickers in a twist.



11 May 2021 06:48:23
I know it shouldn't have come to this but. is it just me that thinks Man United would be better resting players against us rather than against Leicester? A win for them tonight basically guarantees them second place and then allows them to focus completely on the Europa League final.

Surely OGS can find it in is heart as an ex-member (allegedly) of the Norwegian Liverpool supporters club to do us a bit of a favour.


1.) 11 May 2021 08:49:00
A gift from Ollie and/ or Utd. Thanks, but no.

2.) 11 May 2021 10:59:39
Can’t believe I will be supporting utd tonight. 😂

Need them to get a big result although I am sure there will be a weakend team out.

3.) 11 May 2021 11:50:04
You say weakend team. But think of it like this. That team could well consist of some expensive signings, plenty of internationals and fresh legs. Personally if I was Liecester I would want to face a team of players who had played in Rome five days ago, at Villa 48 hrs ago and now against themselves, rather than a team of fresher players with a point to prove. OGS has no choice but to rest players after the scheduling issue, he owes Liverpool and West Ham nothing. United will finish top 4 now regardless of thier final 4 games, they have done thier bit its not on them that other teams have been awful and are now desperate for them to win a game they do not need to. And let's not forget there is a chance tonights game, and in particular Thursdays game against us will be disrupted again, if that happens then who knows how the games will be rearranged and points awarded.

4.) 11 May 2021 14:15:10
It would be ironic if by picking a weaker team, those players put a real shift in, win the game and play themselves in the EL final squad. Someone like Diallo could have a great game. Also Rodgers prep would be affected by not knowing how they could line up.

5.) 11 May 2021 14:34:35
Thats what I'm thinking Kirkbyred. These players coming in have a point to prove and want to play in the biggest game they have this season, against us on Thursday.

6.) 11 May 2021 16:17:55
Leicester has to lose and by at least 2 goals. So that our goal difference becomes even with them, in the least, and then we'll take it from there in our next 4 games.



04 Mar 2021 07:39:25
Slightly different topic but. just noticed in the press that there's some controversy about the upcoming round of international fixtures and that Klopp seems to have said he'll refuse to let players go if they have to quarantine on return.

Is it just me that thinks playing these games anyway is utter madness at the moment given the state of the world. Just feels absolutely stupid.


1.) 04 Mar 2021 07:47:46
Myself I can’t stand intl football it’s absolute tripe and times like this it matters even less!

2.) 04 Mar 2021 08:45:29
Especially if your from Ireland eh Jay😂.

3.) 04 Mar 2021 08:47:06
The fact that uefa came out today saying it plans on playing the euros this summer in 12 countries when 9 of those countries won't even be in final stage of their vax programmes under current predictions is an exercise in the sort of deadly stubbornness that this planet cannot survive with. If C.V. hasn't taught people that reality trumps ideals, nothing will.

4.) 04 Mar 2021 10:15:56
International football shouldn’t be happening but neither should European football realistically under the same umbrella. Clubs won’t mention that though as they get far too much money from CL.

5.) 04 Mar 2021 10:26:41
Good point.

6.) 04 Mar 2021 12:37:26
JK - the difference with club football is that it's still one group in isolation meeting another group in isolation. It's not 5-10 groups mixing together, then meeting another mix of 5-10 squads over and over travelling around Europe to do so. You could even say that if they had decided to cancel the club European competitions so they could space out the euro games then it would be more management. As it is, it's just ignoring the situation to see through the plans.

7.) 04 Mar 2021 13:36:09
move all the football to NZ. just don't play the games in Auckland where they keep messing up their C.V. response lol. nah seriously tho, the International programmes are a joke.

But doesn't this just give all of you (us) cause for pause and see this all for what it really is. I know these people running various sports love the games, but in the end these sports are just vehicles to make rich people money. They are taking advantage of super human athletes to create an environment for them thrive (sport) so that they can make money from us less than superior athletes (us fans lol) who watch, buy jerseys etc etc.

If this was about humanity and trying to ensure our athletes are in condition to find out the best of the best then of course the decisions will be different.

I seem to recall Akira was the poster who called out the Diaz transfer even down to knowing money had been transferred around for the fee. His hit rate is pretty good so far. I don’t know much about the layer TBH but we do need a Hendo replacement at some point….

But where would he go Ed0666 that’s the issue? Do you see him at Barcelona or Real because surely they are the only teams at or around our level? I don’t see him at PSG and none of the Italian clubs are that great at the moment. Doubt he’d go to Bayern really.

I’m in no way questioning the man, he’s a hero, but where is a logical step up from here? May as well carry on the good work here after bringing in the likes of Konate and Diaz to make the squad a bit younger.


{Ed0666's Note - who cares mate he’s signed a 2 year extension!! I’m
So f’ckin happy 😂😂😂

This would be fantastic. I’m not sure Klopp could do elsewhere what he’s done with Liverpool. Other clubs at his elite level simply wouldn’t afford him the time to deliver what he was granted here. Hopefully he knows that and will give us an extra 2/ 3years before retiring or taking over the German national team?


{Ed0666's Note - every club in world football would give him 2 years he’s Jurgeun F’ckin Klopp!!!

I think some supporters might be in for a shock when they see the annual accounts when published. It’ll hopefully be a timely reminder of how quickly things can change, it was only a few years ago that we reported a huge profit.

I’m a firm believer that ALL clubs should live within their means. Not sure that always happens though….

Transition_time - both Matip and VVD will be over 30 next season so not sure for how much longer they will both be first choice. Selling Gomez at 25 and allowing Matip to keep his place makes no sense in the longer term. I’d suggest Gomez and Konate are seen as our future centre back pairing, JG just needs to be patient, it won’t be long before Matip gets injured or loses form, in fact I don’t think he’s played that well in our last few games…….
