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.}



31 Aug 2015 16:47:21
Press reports linking us with Yarmolenko and/or Blaszczykowski again Eds - anything in these rumours?

Also talk of a RM bid for Moreno - any truth in that? I guess the player wouldn't turn that down!


{Ed001's Note - nothing as far as I am aware in any of those. Madrid are busy trying to sort out De Gea and running out of time fast.}



08 Jan 2015 15:42:16
Telegraph reckon Suso to AC Milan not happening - perhaps there is a chance for him yet at Anfield.


1.) 08 Jan 2015 21:26:58
Its a done deal mate .

2.) 09 Jan 2015 14:27:23
I think the bridges between Liverpool and Suso are pretty much burned. One of the Eds said he was trying to leave last season too.

I don't blame the guy to be honest. Especially when the likes of Balotelli who has done absolutely nothing come in and get given a spot in the starting 11 or bench.

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.



20 Feb 2021 16:29:59
Keita is in today's squad folks. How long do we reckon he'll get on the pitch and then how long before we see him again.


1.) 20 Feb 2021 16:40:42
I don’t know but I think it’s safe to say it will be Henderson/ Fabinho in defence probably until VVD is back.

2.) 20 Feb 2021 16:59:10
Naby will score today if he gets on. go easy boys there is a player in there.

3.) 20 Feb 2021 17:17:07
Spot on John’ L8, I’m with you on that one!

4.) 20 Feb 2021 17:44:07
Sorry but he’s too lightweight, makes no effort, is too much trouble off the pitch and I can count the number of good games he’s had on the fingers of one hand.

5.) 20 Feb 2021 18:10:01
You need to watch him live 6 times and when he’s had a run of games.

6.) 20 Feb 2021 18:29:38
Maybe hendo won't be back for sometime. looked hamstring.

7.) 20 Feb 2021 18:44:35
A run of games? That’s a laugh. He injures himself tying his laces, he should be binned.

8.) 20 Feb 2021 19:04:51
no matter who we play, we lose.
poor all round really, no invention.
and Firmino, stealing a living. nut said.

9.) 20 Feb 2021 19:30:22
Please tell me you actually are taking the piss Pdiddy81?

10.) 20 Feb 2021 19:40:41
re firmino - no not actually.
he's been so poor for long time
ok in a well functioning team but we are pants, no goals (for long-time) and he's press/ tackling has declined. looks spent.
he's job to make it easy for salah/ mane to score, but he's not linking up with them very well or creating.
so what's he actually giving us exactly? recently Im mean. not history.

11.) 20 Feb 2021 21:01:49
Yes 6 times that’s correct, a run of games
At least he wants to try and get the ball forward, maybe with Naby in the team we’d not be where we are now? He’s was instrumental in the demolition of palace.

12.) 20 Feb 2021 18:56:38
My point being, when he’s has a run of games he’s actually looked decent and always looking to play the ball forward. Matip should have been binned too right?



19 Feb 2021 09:40:32
Anyone else think that tomorrow's game would be a good chance to put Davies into the team and see how he can do? Don't see the point in signing him just to sit on the bench, let's give him some game time and see if he can do a job for us. Allows Hendo/ Fab back into midfield making us stronger there.


1.) 19 Feb 2021 10:11:13
Yeah if he’s fit. We have 3 fit centre backs so why are we playing midfielders in the defence?

2.) 19 Feb 2021 12:54:10
local derby with the most sending off's in the league, is not in my opinion the time to play a CB with 2 games under his belt along side a CB with no games under his belt. One or the other alongside Hendo or Fab would be my preference.

3.) 19 Feb 2021 13:35:54
cymru am byth, Spot on.

4.) 19 Feb 2021 14:04:06
A ferocious local derby is no place to give a new centre-back his premier league debut.

5.) 19 Feb 2021 14:09:05
Didn’t Vvd make his LFC debut against Everton?

6.) 19 Feb 2021 14:09:48
Fabhino is out.

7.) 19 Feb 2021 14:18:05
No Fab though chaps so it means we'd have Hendo in defence again. If these two players we've just brought in aren't good enough to play against Everton then why buy/ loan them in the first place?

8.) 19 Feb 2021 14:30:55
Phillips and kabak/ Davies. Hendo at DM would give them a hell of a lot more protection than wiji/ thiago.

9.) 19 Feb 2021 15:38:50
Are we comparing Davies with VVD now? IMO, it will be Kabak and Hendo at CB again.

10.) 19 Feb 2021 16:45:28
Johnnyr, have you learned nothing about how Klopp integrates players during his time in charge?
Seriously, nothing?

11.) 19 Feb 2021 17:19:51
Thanks flashthered, but you may have noticed that we have a bit of a crisis in defence that has required us to play our best midfielders out of position for the past 2 months. This isn't really the time for us to be talking about the luxury of integrating players over an extended period of time.

12.) 20 Feb 2021 04:40:12
JK23, the big difference is that VVD had plenty of premier league experience before his debut.
Davies would get eaten alive and kicked to oblivion by the likes of Richarlison and Pickford.

Southern Red, it’s been stated in Barcelona’s financial account for at least 2 years now so why the media insist on recycling the story every few weeks I don’t know. Whatever happened to research….

The point about other countries was that maybe players from there may be better suited to English football than those from Italy Ed002. Hence why we see more successful players from France/ Spain in the PL.


{Ed002's Note - The Italian players are not less suited - the players who are less suited to playing abroad are the English.

09 Jun 2021 14:28:22
I get that Ed002 but show me a more recent example? Cuducini probably the most recent in that list and even he probably last played here 10 years ago.

Not trying to cause any argument but - barring the odd exceptions who have now been listed twice - there haven't been many successful Italian players over here compared to French/ Spanish players. My guess is because their league is more tactical than physical.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to sign this player and for him to be great, past history suggests that he'd be a bigger risk than players from other countries.


{Ed002's Note - There have not been many recently - Ogbonna has been at West Ham for five or six years now. Emerson, Raphinha and Jorginho all count as Italian and do OK.. You have now changed tact to say that there are not as many Italian players as there are from other coulntries - it all seems to make little sense I am afraid.}

Lot of theoretical thinking there King Carlos. Historically Italian players have fared badly in the UK. I'm happy to be wrong but this past experience must surely be a consideration in any transfer the club looks at from there?


{Ed002's Note - Zola, Di Canio, Carbone, Vialli, Cudicini, Ravenelli, Di Mateo seemed to manage OK.}

Like I said, there will be exceptions but you've gone back in time quite a bit there. Let's try Balotelli, Aquilani, Borini and Dossena for starters.

Read this story earlier, implied that Couts would come back to Liverpool if we didn’t ask for any more cash from Barca. As it happens I guess we’d then have to pay back the debt we factored out so doubt there’s any kind of freebies here. It’s a complete non-story in my opinion.

I know I bang on about this a lot but how is it the media fail to know by now how Liverpool dealt with the remaining Coutinho debt/ payments? It’s even clearly stated in Barcelona’s financial accounts. Whatever happened to research….
