Asensio
Lemar.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Feb 2018 06:13:27
alisson seems out of reach.
outland would be attainable but the interest is in navas.

alderweireld will have loads of teams after him so not going to happen.
de vrij was possible but doesn't seem likely any more.

jorginho would be attainable probably but not sure were interested.
fabinho hasn't been mentioned for us even slightly.

fekir would be attainable but we don't seem to have him at the top of our list. could be a slight surprise one though and we could attract him.
asensio will have most of europe after him. much as id love him probably not.
lemar is possible if interest still remains at the price being asked.

You can’t take posts seriously when they can’t even get basic facts right.

Was at the game today. Great result and keeps us in the mix for second and pole position in the race for top 4.

Three things I saw from the game today:
1. Robertson is our best LB since Steven Finnan. He's non stop all game, massive engine always wants the ball up and down that right side all day.

2. Emre Can can leave, he slows the ball down so much. Stagnated our forward momentum on a number of occasions. His vision and pass8ng also aren't up to scratch compared to Hendo.

3. Final point on the atmosphere. How can the fans expect to create a good atmosphere whenever someone tries to stand up the stewards are over to tell them to sit down. Really disappointing to see fans trying to be passionate and not being allowed.

Agree0 Disagree2

Finnan was a right back So I just stopped reading.

24 Feb 2018 20:25:40
I guess the OP is meaning that he was reliable like Finnan was.

25 Feb 2018 02:04:24
Can scored and controlled the game, completely nullified West ham midfield and gets knocked. I for one would love to hear Emre has signed a new contract. He may see this liverpool becoming serious players in Europe and decide he does want to stay. We would have to spend about 40/ 50 mil to get someone of his level and then we have to hope the new guy fits in and settles well. We gain nothing from Can leaving on a bosmon.

Can purposely slowed the game down today, another mature performance. He is also capable of sending salah and co on their way with 1/ 2 touches.

24 Feb 2018 17:29:41
Good result front three at ease up there!
Only complaint for me is their goal, vvd Didn't have a great desire to get back and keep a clean sheet. When Robertson leaves that area, the cb's need to be aware.

Agree1 Disagree1

24 Feb 2018 17:48:56
For me that goal was more to do with a lack of nous in midfield.

24 Feb 2018 19:26:05
Spot on MrShankly Emre looses the ball and in a second Antonio is one on one with Karius.

25 Feb 2018 06:06:39
Not sure you can blame VVD too much for their goal. No one expected Can to lose possession so easily and turn it over. Antonio looked very quick as well. A poor mistake that was punished by the opposition and rightly so.

What was good was we took the sting out of the game not too long after their goal. Back and forth football til we controlled possession again.

23 Feb 2018 17:33:04

Why\'s ward not been given a chance? He did great on loan at both Aberdeen and Huddersfield, it was not his fault we got knocked out the league cup when he played, klopp picked a week side. I don\'t get the mentality of bringing the lad back and not using him when the others have not impressed. And Wales need him playing to b honest.

Agree1 Disagree3

23 Feb 2018 17:57:58

Because as much as everyone would love him to be our saviour, Aberdeen and huddesfield are probably where he belongs untill he does something of note. He just isn\'t what we need in goal right now. And probably never will be. He should move on. And so should we. We are Liverpool not Aberdeen.

23 Feb 2018 18:34:26

Why do Wales need him playing? They have nothing going on this summer.

23 Feb 2018 20:22:38

aussieMARK and yet we’re being linked with the rancidly awful Kaylor Navas who is a far worse keeper than Ward.

23 Feb 2018 20:32:16

Klopp doesn’t think he is good enough. We overhype everyone!

23 Feb 2018 22:05:14
Including the manager Harry 😜?

24 Feb 2018 09:09:58
You don’t start in goal every week for Real Madrid it you’re rubbish. Why do people keep saying this. I still have strong hopes that Karius will make it myself - with a stronger defence including vvd and hendo back in midfield breaking up play more he will be fine.

Karius for no 1!

24 Feb 2018 11:26:06
what on earth are you talking about 1jj? what has starting for Real Madrid or Barcelona has to do with anything?

Casillas started a lot for Real Madrid and in my opinion is one of the most overrated Goalkeepers of all time and was quickly found out once he left Real Madrid, the same goes for Valdes and Bravo from Barcelona, why is it so hard to understand these team could have my nan in goal and still win every single game 6-2!

Those teams don't need a world class gk most of the time, Spanish GK's up until de Gea literally had 10 world class players ahead of them when dominating world and european football. Once the quality of those players ahead of them dropped or they retired the GK's are exposed to what they really are, very very average goalkeepers. De Gea is only now getting to start for Spain because he doesn't play for Real or Barcelona and none of those teams have a spanish GK anymore.

Like in England every half decent english player is hyped beyond belief as to make an average midfielder like Dele Alli playing as 2nd striker most of his spurs career a world class midfielder worth over 150 million €! The same happens in spain with spanish players.

24 Feb 2018 17:33:28
Sorry 1jj Navas is rancidly awful. Barcelona and Real Borg played with poor keepers for years, Real with Cassilas and now Navas, Barcelona with Valdez, Rustu and Bravo. I invite you to watch the mistakes and goals Navas concedes, then come back and try and say he’s a good keeper.

25 Feb 2018 00:47:35
Did I really read that. "how does starting for real or Barcelona mean you're not rubbish" because they are the best teams in the world. Simple as that. You don't become a regular for the best team in the world if you're rubbish. No disrespect nostradamus, you speak a lot of sense usually but that was a silly remark.

I thought Karius was immense today, made some top notch saves. One dodgy bit of distribution but even that seems to be getting better. I said before Karius has until the end of season to state his case and so far he is doing well, winning me over anyhow.

23 Feb 2018 18:59:01
Any truth in Benzema rumours?

Agree1 Disagree5

23 Feb 2018 20:20:35
Hope not.

23 Feb 2018 17:34:29
Hi eds and everyone else that contributes to the website. I was wondering if we've ever shown interest in Dembele from Tottenham? Might be a pipe dream but I'd love to see him in a red shirt. He glides through that midfield. Is he happy at Tottenham and could we have a chance at snatching him?

Agree3 Disagree3

Hi Edd\'s



Any insight into possible Liverpool interest in Sergej Milinković-Savic?

{Ed001's Note - only in our dreams mate, he is going to cost Coutinho money as he has a long term contract and Lazio do not want to sell.}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Feb 2018 09:54:51

We have coutinho type money ed01😉.

{Ed001\'s Note - but we also need to buy more than one player....}

Thought I was looking a bit rougher than usual today. 😎.

21 Feb 2018 23:57:07
Mctommy youngster walk straight into Man United UCL team and look perfectly at home, when was the last time our acafemy produce a youngster who can walk straight into 1st team? Damning indictment of our academy. Stop those rose tinted glass.

Agree4 Disagree35

22 Feb 2018 07:36:07
taa is pretty recent.

22 Feb 2018 07:45:01
I think that boy is 21, so he's not walked straight in to the team. It's different for the likes of woodburn/ ojo/ ejaria etc who played their first minutes for us as teenagers. It's just a different way of handling young players, and It's a luxury not many teams have as man utd have been steadily beefing up their squad to the point where they can pick and choose when to blood youngsters. Let's not forget TAA who made his champs league debut this season and looked great.

22 Feb 2018 09:23:27
We don’t have CM’s in our academy or they would be ahead of James Milner by now. The same applies to Marko Grujic!

22 Feb 2018 09:34:48
We have seen these young players walk in to the Man United team and 12 months latter never seen again in their shirts after we were told that they would be world beaters so they are not that great hey bud if don’t believe me look back in their records?

22 Feb 2018 10:09:12
For a start, no he didn't just walk straight into the United team. He's made 6 starts this season with yesterday. Last season he had 2 sub appearances. At 21 it's not awful, but it's hardly exceptional.

As for who from our academy produced someone whose had the same sort of first XI impact? Well TAA this season is academy through and through, has played far better than McTominay's best in almost every game and has made a significantly greater impact at a younger age. Woodburn has about the same number of appearances as mcTominay has, not including his international appearances. Flanagan came from the academy for a large number of senior appearances to great effect before his injury. Robinson also did alright before losing track. The likes of Brad Smith, Rossiter etc also made a similar number of first team appearances with potentially greater impact. Ejaria also made senior appearances before going on loan.

If you're expanding the net a little and counting everyone who came up through the youth team whether they started in the academy or not then Ibe, Sterling, Ward, Sinclair etc all have stepped up to the first team from youth levels of various shapes and sizes.

I hope that answers your question about the relative strengths of academies and gives you a little bit of perspective on your 'damming indictment' of our academy. Our graduates have done significantly better than United's over the past few years - still not well enough mind, but United's is not the gold standard to be looking at. For all Mourinho's bluster, McTominay looks about as good as Kevin Stewart ever did and if he doesn't look out of place in the United midfield, it says more about their midfield's quality than it does about him.

24 Feb 2018 00:06:35
Why do some of our own fans look for reasons to bash us? A kid at United had a half decent game against a half decent Spanish team and that’s a damning indictment on Liverpool?!
He didn’t even play that well and Seville made it very easy for him. He’ll be another that goes the way of Tom Cleverly, Januzaj, Macheda and countless other ok players to come through United in the last decade.
Nothing to do with Liverpool though.
