Eds, i remember on the sharkopod that you said Barcelona would look to get a deal done before the end of november as one of the key instigators of the deal would no longer be involved and this would lead to them viewing other targets. In this situation, is it possible we could see coutinho stay a bit longer in a de gea to real madrid scenario? Or would he definately try and force a move to another team like psg, madrid, maybe even juventus to replace dybala?

Anonymous Woolback

{Ed002's Note - Yes, we are now beyond the end of November and they will be considering their options. It is possible that Coutinho could move in January or the Summer but be clear he wants out. Coutinho is not of interest to Juventus and he is not first choice for Real Madrid. PSG might retain and interest but it is Barcelona who want him and that is where the player wants to go.}


1.) 04 Dec 2017 19:56:00
Up to Barcelona to make us an acceptable offer. The ball is in their court. 🤝.


2.) 05 Dec 2017 03:05:38
Barca will once again resort to underhand tactics to get Coutinho cheap. We trust Henry to duke it out with them.


 

 

10 Apr 2017 20:29:48
Just read that coutinho rejected the requests of the coaches to stay at home, so he could make the bench for the game on saturday, then to come off the bench and score. This is the exact attitude and type of player we need here at liverpool, hats off to him.

Couts has to stay, build our team around him, need another Mane .


2.) 11 Apr 2017 00:53:45
What would you do with another Mane if you've built your team around Coutinho?


3.) 11 Apr 2017 02:02:09
Coutinho was always needee to stay. He didn't need to do anything like that to justify it.

Hes our boy. Show him the love and he will give you the heart.


4.) 11 Apr 2017 03:24:35
build another mane and mane running around firmino!? and then someone can get their dream of firmino in central midfield realised.! :p.


5.) 11 Apr 2017 03:52:08
probably the best £8.5m the club has ever spent.


6.) 11 Apr 2017 06:07:23
Sure the best 8.5 we ever spent was on ings, that free transfer.


7.) 11 Apr 2017 08:25:26
support coutinho zimbo, as Mane has done.


8.) 11 Apr 2017 15:26:17
Don't worry I'd happily take another Mane! Just not sure if we'll get someone of his level to join with no obvious starting spot. Think hopefully Coutinho, Firmino and Mane will be our starting lineup and wouldn't want to see that changed myself.


9.) 11 Apr 2017 15:41:46
kudos couts, however if and when he is not in form let's remember this instead of wanting him out.


10.) 11 Apr 2017 21:18:01
The problem with football these days is that the Doctors think they pick the team. Hats off to Coutinho for his positive attitude and nonsense to all that red zone, orange zone, green zone crap.


11.) 12 Apr 2017 01:28:00
He must be mad. If someone offered me the day off id take 2.


12.) 12 Apr 2017 09:17:18
Haha that's good one mingo.

From what i can work out the players we are interested in are:

Chilwell
Hector
Karius
Zielinski
Gotze
Silva

I have never seen any of those players play but i guess any addition at goalkeeper and left back is welcome. Zielinski and silva seem slightly unneccasary unles we get rid of a lot of players. Hector is apparently more defensive minded which is exactly what we need. I was still hoping for perhaps a holding mid to push Can and Henderson more but maybe Grujic is that player. However i fail to see the point of chilwell as he is just another joe gomez surely? And personally i like joe gomez so i'd much rather see him or smith given a chance.

The outs that everybody can virtually agree on are:

Mignolet
Moreno
Skrtel
Lallana
Milner
Benteke
Balotelli
Allen
Alberto
And all the academy players who will be moving on.

If all that happens i'd consider it a very successful summer and cannot wait for next season with a squad of klopps own players.

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 20 May 2016 18:09:47
Lallana will stay, Klopp said as much the other day. I can't see Milner moving on either on his wages and the sort of club he'd want to go to.


2.) 20 May 2016 18:54:38
Joe Gomez is a cb not a lb Rodgers just stuck him there like he did Flanagan. I really like Gomez he's got a lot of promise, good with the ball at his feet, is comfortable with a challenge and not bad in the air. just hope he comes back from injury well.


3.) 20 May 2016 18:54:50
Milner's leading our assists table. I'd keep him on the condition that he's usually played on the right of midfield rather than in the middle.


4.) 20 May 2016 19:07:00
AW, Migs not be moving, neither will Milner. Lallana, I think, may make way for Goetze, but not necessarily. I think illori will move on too.


5.) 20 May 2016 19:53:12
Aren't we also interested/ linked with another midfielder? Dhroud is it?


6.) 20 May 2016 19:58:53
Perhaps Goetze will replace Coutinho? Barcelona have been looking recently and something was said earlier in the year, about him wanting to move on if there is no champions league football at Liverpool.

It wouldn't surprise me if a decent offer came in for him at least. We're not in a position where we can reject the advances of clubs like Barcelona, we haven't got the finances and we don't have any European competition next season.

One thing is for sure, Coutinho will not sell cheap, so if he does leave we'll at least get a tidy sum for him.


7.) 20 May 2016 20:44:40
I don't think Goetze and Coutinho are related at all. I would aso be not so sure either of Hector or Silva are coming in. While Liverpool has scouted both players, we have not made any effort to move for them, and are concentrating on bringing in Zielinski, Chilwell, Karius and seemingly Goetze.


8.) 20 May 2016 21:36:46
Mignolet has a 5yr contract.
He will not be leaving unless some fool offers us more than his contract is worth.


9.) 20 May 2016 22:09:24
im sure whoever klopp buys will be the right player for the team, he knows what he needs to do after this season so i will put my faith in him to get it right instead of trying to second guess him, if he brings these players in then he needs them yes we have other players in the team already but he might not see a future for them because unlike us he sees them every day and knows there weaknesess, like lallana for instance he is a good player but there's hardley any end product from him and i don't think he is at the right standard for us maybe Zielinski will have a better end product because these 2 are very a like, also the players he is buying he is getting them cheap not like BR who over spent on players, its so refreshing that he is getting players this cheap for a change,


10.) 20 May 2016 23:47:07
Great insight despite having never seen any of them play.


11.) 21 May 2016 01:11:06
I don't agree Lallana and Milner should go. 2 of our most consistent performers under Klopp. Allen could do a job as a squad player. Moreno - has still (some) time to learn how to defend. Not sure he will though!


12.) 21 May 2016 07:00:34
AndyM, lalana should go if Gotze replace him. Milner can go if we get Zielinski.


13.) 21 May 2016 14:52:38
Andym that mean no one significant leaving and based on that no one coming in. Simple tranfer window.


14.) 22 May 2016 00:45:17
Skrtel, Benteke and Allen, if he moves, all significant 'Outs'. I don't see CM as a priority for strengthening. Matip and Grujic both significant 'Ins' already done. A GK and Lb needed (Lb whether Moreno stays or goes) . I hope for a lot from Ings next season.


 

 

21 Mar 2016 20:45:32
Everything points to skrtel being sold. Ilori and wisdom likely to follow in all honesty. He won't even play ilori ahead of lucas at centre back.

Ed002, do you have any info on these supposed claims that sturridge may want to leave?

Various people seem to think there's something in it and i believe you have said in the past he could leave, unless i am mistaken.

Anonymous Woolback

{Ed002's Note - I am pretty sure he doesn't want to leave. He will want to prove himself to be fit and be a regular starter.}


1.) 25 Feb 2016 08:09:37
I genuinely thought mountains were being made out of molehills by this entire situation. People were looking for updates when there was no update to give. I'm fairly certain Klopp came out at one stage during it and said studge needs a 'pre season' of sorts before he could play which made sense in my mind because it was breaking the perpetual cycle of injury > recover > thrown back in straight away > inevitable break down
Only time will tell if the cycle has been broken so fingers crossed.

{Ed002's Note - Sturridge was, quite correctly, eased back in. If he picks up an injury now because too much is being asked too soon then the finger will point directly at the coaching staff.}


2.) 25 Feb 2016 08:18:21
I agree it's a difficult balancing act for Klopp and co. Play him too much and he will most certainly break down again, don't play him enough and you'll have certain sections of the media/ supporters blasting management for not playing our best player and will come out with ridiculous rumours and theories. Common sense rarely prevails!


3.) 25 Feb 2016 11:50:19
Eds and Reds would I be right in saying that the majority of his injuries have come in training rather than a competitive match? Not sure where I'm going with this, but perhaps he needs the Ledley King treatment?


4.) 25 Feb 2016 12:16:24
I'll take the Ed's word on this, paper talk is generally made sensationalism. With any luck he can put this all behind him, Studge is a top class finisher and a tremendous player, so I am glad to see him back.

I’ve already posted about the final but I feel I still need more closure. I’m properly gutted still. I’m gutted that this club has bottled it on so many occasions over the last 12 years or so, but I’m not even sure what to make of those one. We didn’t have the squad depth, we didn’t have the experience, we didn’t have the current ballon do’r holder, we didn’t have the ability to bring an £85 million player off the bench.

It seems reasonable that we should of lost, but why does it hurt so much? I even predicted a 3-1 to Madrid before the game, so why do I find myself in a state of total numbness, disbelief and shock?

I feel this because I always said that if Madrid win, I at least want them to win convincingly. I wanted to come out of the game feeling we had been bested by the better team. I did not want to feel cheated, but that is exactly what I got. The injury to Salah, followed by the mistakes of Karius that cannot be attributed to anything other than unfortunate to have happened on the biggest stage of all, it just leaves me feeling like we didn’t even get a proper crack at it. I am still convinced Ramos knew what he was doing, and I am still convinced we would have won if Salah had stayed on the pitch. That’s why it really stings.

Anonymous Woolback

1.) 28 May 2018 15:50:57
Egypt are taking Ramos to court seeking €1billion in compensation 😂 in the near impossible event they win the court battle, I hope we would have an open bus parade to celebrate 😂

Chin up AW. If you need something to smile about, just remember that the highlight of Man United, Arsenal and Spurs fans seasons was us only being the second best team in Europe 💪.

{Ed002's Note - You want to make Liverpool a laughing stock as well then?}


2.) 28 May 2018 16:05:43
I thought the laughing face made it obvious, but for clarity Ed002, it was just a joke. It is the banter page after all! What Ramos did was out of order, but the only way to answer it is to win the whole thing next season 👍.

{Ed002's Note - And you think the fourth best team in England can do that?}


3.) 28 May 2018 16:41:05
Ed 002, just to jog your memory, we were in the final 2 days ago so considering we got that far, why can’t we win it? This is yet another comment from you, along with all the others with the sole intention of getting a rise from the Liverpool fans, you’ve never got a positive opinion when it comes to liverpool.


4.) 28 May 2018 16:49:23
It’s banter jk.


5.) 28 May 2018 17:03:37
Edd 2 and myself certainly share some interesting points of view.


6.) 28 May 2018 16:23:29
Why not Ed2 the fourth best team were only 45 minutes away on Saturday.

{Ed002's Note - Well you have just answered it - Liverpool were not good enough to win and they didn't win. You know that. The Liverpool fans will always have an outpouring of "we was robbed" and whine about it for days every time the side lose. It is always someone else's fault, the corrupt authorities, whatever. It is embarrassing but the way it is.}


7.) 28 May 2018 16:28:32
Yes I do Ed002. It's the supporters job to believe in our players no matter what. Last I checked we all believed we COULD win it this year, a week ago.

With another season to strengthen and a full year of our new look defence getting more used to playing together, anything is possible. And if I or Anyone else doesn't believe that it CAN happen (not necessarily that it WILl), what is the point in any of this? Football, Liverpool, or even this site?

I'll always believe in reality, and the reality is that it is a possibility. It is a mantra that runs deeper than football. Without hopes and dreams, there is no point in living life in general.

An old friend of mine died of lung cancer despite never smoking and being as healthy as anyone I knew. I could never understand how he just got on with life like nothing was happening. Not much longer than a month before he died, he asked me a question; "Is the glass half full or half empty? " I said it was half full to which he replied; "No, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be"

The message I took from that, is that we are all in control of our emotions and it is up to us if we choose to let them consume us. Because somewhere in between the negative outlook and the positive outlook, is reality. It's best to live your life in that middle ground.

The positive outlook is to say we will win it next season. The negative outlook is to say we won't. The correct outlook is to accept that we can.

{Ed002's Note - You can have hopes and dreams and that is fine. But Liverpool were not good enough to win the Champions League, the Premier League, the FA Cup nor the League Cup - and that has been the way of it for years. The team played well under Klopp for much of the season but were still rather inconsistent which is down to naivety, the lack of a game plan, no plan B, and the amateurism of upsetting Buvac and seeing the chairman of the club send the wrong message to the players on the day of a European Cup final. If Liverpool had of won that one game we would not have had cries to sack the goalkeeping coach, the abuse of the goalkeeper, Salah whimpering like a prepubescent schoolgirl nor the desire of the fans to replace pretty much the whole side - ironically excluding the player who has had his agent hawking him around the "big clubs" in Spain.

Liverpool have been moving in the right direction but they must still address off field issues and must give Keita a significant talking to and not put any arm around his shoulder to get the monkey off his back about being a complete and utter jerk. They have a DoF with limited knowledge of the game, the market, the contacts etc. required at that level - we will see how it goes. But overall they are improving.}


8.) 28 May 2018 16:37:15
The fourth best team in England got further than the top three this season and could very well have won it. So Ed002 I see no reason why we can’t win it next season. Not saying we will but finishing fourth this season has no bearing at all on how we fare in next seasons champions league.

{Ed002's Note - You might want to read what was previously written.}


9.) 28 May 2018 16:45:11
Well. considering a team which finishd fifth did win it a few years ago. yea i believe we can ed.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of a team finishing fifth having ever won the Champions League but I will take your word for it.}


10.) 28 May 2018 17:13:44
Ed, to answer your question, I do think the 4th best team in England can win it. The 6th best team in England won it in 2012. I think it will be much harder to get this far next year, but who knows?

{Ed002's Note - I thinkl you will find the second best team in England won it in 2012. You do get that the Premier League is played for each season don't you?}


11.) 28 May 2018 17:34:23
Good discussion Ed. Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome, I enjoyed it as well.}


12.) 28 May 2018 18:30:46
The 4th best team in England won it in 2005, not sure why everyone is getting touchy again I'm sure Ed 02 knows the favourites don't always get what they deserve in cup formats but I expect he has enjoyed giving out a few home truths in the last couple of days due to past indescretions.

{Ed002's Note - The relevance of which is?}


13.) 28 May 2018 18:36:19
Good right up that mk mate.
On the other hand ed02 has me in stitches, his replys are so funny yet so blunt what a character you are ed02.


14.) 28 May 2018 18:55:11
Ed002 Mk said we should win the whole thing next year. By that I think he means the whole competition not a clean sweep at every trophy. This prompted your comment about the 4th best team in England etc.

{Ed002's Note - No it didn't.}


15.) 28 May 2018 18:57:52
liverpool finished 5th in the league 2005. just to clarify.

{Ed002's Note - Great stuff, 13 years and they are up to 4th. Do we have enough data to predict when Liverpool will win the Champions League again if we extrapolate these statistics?}


16.) 28 May 2018 19:00:12
The player who’s having his agent look for a deal in Spain? Who is that? Did I miss something?

{Ed002's Note - Salah - this has been going on for 6 months.}


17.) 28 May 2018 19:24:42
"Salah whimpering like a prepubescent schoolgirl"
Is that necessary Ed002? He was injured! I know you have a lot more knowledge about football than all of us but sometimes your response is annoying.

{Ed002's Note - Feel free to be annoyed - it is a factual description of what happened.}


18.) 28 May 2018 19:57:52
002 - in general, not particularly Salah, don’t agents always try to look out for moves, either try to invite a move (pull) or hear others out (push)? In this age, I would be very surprised if there are any players who would not have an eye out for moves elsewhere.

{Ed002's Note - No. Salah asked his agent to make enquiries with Real MAdrid. I have explained this since before Christmas.}


19.) 28 May 2018 21:58:05
Ed002, I have noticed that you have mentioned Salah asking his agent to clarify interest from Spain more than once, just to play devils advocate Here, obviously he's had a superb season for us, and I would assume (but you would know more) that he would command a rather large fee. Would they be willing to pay that large fee after 1 great season, or perhaps hold a year to see if he can replicate it and prove he is the real deal?

{Ed002's Note - This has been going on since before Christmas and he had him talk with Barcelona. I understand the wages and image rights being requested were well beyond what any club would pay.}


20.) 28 May 2018 22:43:36
Many thanks for your insight and for all the time and effort you put in . It's very much appreciated.

In 1975 Bayern Munich won the European Cup but finished 10th in their league.
In 1982, Aston Villa won the European Cup but finished 11th in their League.
In 2000, Real Madrid won the European Cup but finished 5th in their league.
In 2005, Liverpool won the Champions League but finished 5th in their league.
In 2012, Chelsea won the Champions League but finished 6th in their league.


 

 

27 May 2018 10:42:00
This one really stings. A lot. I am gutted for everyone, and although I did predict 3-1 Madrid, I didn’t predict how it would happen. Such a flat, dull, nothing game. I wouldn’t mind the use of Madrid breaking up the play etc but deliberately injuring our best player, and I do believe it was deliberate, is the most disgusting act I have ever seen on a football pitch. We have been well and truly robbed and insulted.

But I tell you what. Usually after such defeats I try and distance myself from this site and football for a week for my own sanity. But this time I do not. I do not feel it neccasary to hide because I have never been more proud to be a Liverpool fan. Ever. Some of the things I saw yesterday will stick with me for a lifetime. I was lucky enough to be at anfield, the atmosphere was electric, and it was an honour to share our pain with my brothers and sisters in the kop. We win together, we lose together. The flags hanging from every visible window in Liverpool. The fact that when I emerged from my friends flat looking like a dishevelled troll doll this morning, people were still in the streets singing in the town centre. Honestly, you would not have known we had lost last night. The town centre was packed and it was not depressing or morose, it was jovial, it was a celebration of how bloody great we are whether we win or lose. And among all the tears being shed in anfield last night, I overheard a very rousing speech from a father to a daughter who was worried she would be mocked by her peers for our loss; he simply told her to never ever be ashamed of who you support and where you come from, because we are Liverpool, 5 time European cup holders, 18 time league champions, we are bloody footballing royalty, an institution of the sport, and absolutely anyone who bad mouths us in all the stereotypical droll ways are probably just jealous because they support a miserable tinpot club with no heritage or community. I reiterate, I have never felt more proud to be a Liverpool fan. We will be back next year.

A few notes about the actual game, I hope Salah recovers soon and I am absolutely devastated for one of the nicest guys in football to have his dreams shattered by one of the most disgusting; I hope he takes this a warning of what Real Madrid are really all about and why he should reconsider moving there.

I thought our defense was absolutely outstanding, truly immaculate. Karius, I feel sorry for him, but his error cannot be allowed to stand. He has let down every single one of his team mates and I’m not sure he can realistically continue a career with us after such a disappointing performance on the biggest stage there is.

We defended really well and all of the four our defenders can be proud. Was really impressed by Lovren, he stepped right up.


2.) 27 May 2018 12:04:08
Our defence was top class. Held RM to NO shots on target till Benzema's "goal" and held CR& scoreless all game long.


 

 

25 May 2018 00:29:48
Honestly this could be the game that finishes off my life as a football fan. I have never felt so anxious and uncontrollably excited in anticipation for anything. I have been totally unable to concentrate on my exams or life in general for days. The only comparable feeling was racking my brains as a child in the days leading up to Christmas, wondering if I was going to get a PlayStation or not, how happy I would be or gutted I would be depending on how things went.

I am predicting a 3-1 win to Madrid purely for my own sanity. They are the only team in the competition I never wanted to face, they have such experience and a habit of winning that is unnatural, and as a fan of our club i am scarred by our past failures. I was too young to appreciate Istanbul or the 2006 final, as they were virtually my first experiences as a Liverpool fan.

While we have done very well to finish 4th two years in a row, breaking our hoodoo, we crucially need to win something, if not in Kiev then some time in the near future. Since 2006, think of all the false dawns and failures we have had since then. We have lost another champions league final, and a cup final, a league cup final, a Europa league final, and bottled 2 seemingly nailed on premier league titles, with only a single league cup under dalglish to show for our efforts. It’s all well and good playing good football, having good players, but if this team truly wants to assert their quality and greatness something has to be won, if not in kiev then certainly soon.

Having said that, Madrid are behaving awfully confident and we should have a lot of encouragement from that. They have only won 4 of their last 11 games in all competitions, and they have not come up against a side so good on the counter attack as us. Furthermore, spurs beat them 3-1 earlier in the season, playing very similar football to ourselves.

I think it is also worth noting that the nature of the last few finals. Since the Bayern vs Dortmund final, almost all of the finals have been an attack vs defence scenario, with the offensive team winning virtually every time. We do not play like that, this will be much more akin to the Dortmund Bayern final; a final which Klopp lost mind you, a notable cause for concern, but a Klopp side that also demolished prime Madrid 4-1 I believe. Madrid’s recent record has been reliant on the other teams willingness to sit back and allow them to play, similar to the same mistake teams make against city, something which we did not do. In fact, for all the talk of Madrid’s quality in midfield it is in a similar style to Man City’s, and I would argue Man City’s is far more impressive. Ramos and Marcelo’s lack of discipline, akin to otamendi and Delph, should be exploited to the fullest. On paper, there are only a few advantages I see Madrid having over us, namely the matchup of Marcelo and Ronaldo vs Arnold and Lovren, their midfield quality and their experience, as well as the potential blow to our team from Oxlade-Chamberlains injury and being replaced by Wijnaldum.

The only thing I can ask for is that the lads give their all and enjoy it, regardless of what happens, I have never been more proud to be a Liverpool fan. If we play to th best of our ability, and play without fear, we have a fighting chance. The whole world of football is rooting for us to knock these smug fascists off their perch, but all I ask for is to not leave me with the feeling of a missed opportunity, that we didn’t play to our best and leave it all out on the pitch. If we do that I can sleep peacefully, whatever the result.

It was actually my first ever proper experience as a Liverpool fan Redhof. My dad called me into the room and said something about an important game, I’d never been into sports but I gave it a go. The only thing that sticks with me from the entire game is turning to my dad at half time to ask what on earth was the point in bothering watching the rest, only for him to tell me it’s not to give up and that it’s only over when it’s over. I am old enough to slightly remember how gutted I was In 2007 mind you, a repeat of that on Saturday and I might not leave my room for the next year or so.

I was young during Istanbul as well. Must have been only about 10 years old. Liverpool fan but didn't watch games or much. At half time i asked if i could go to bed but my dad made me stay up and watch it! Great decision that turned out to be.

Predicting a 3-1 defeat for your own sanity?

Don't get this aspect of AWs thinking.

Anyone?

I was 20 and hung out with a group of 10 or so lads and we would go down to our local village pub and hang out in the 'shed end', a tiny little cubby hole of a room with a hatch through to the bar. We loved that room and the locals loved that we had it so the rest of the pub was in peace, at least. We had a tele in there and watched all of the matches singing 'lasagnaaa' to the the champions league theme whenever it came on. We were a right laugh, as you can tell.

Anyway, the night of the final we were all in there our mates supported rival clubs, but none of the close ones and were still looking forward to cheering on the reds with us. At half time the 3 of us Liverpool supporting mates were devastated. So much so, the landlord gave us a free pint as commiserations. The other lads were laughing at us and it was not turning into the the wonderful night we had all imagined. We persevered nonetheless, just hoping it wouldn't get worse but then in the following hour and a half something amazing happened. Everybody was cheering us on and became temporary reds for the night and when Dudek stopped that pen from Shevchenko we erupted in to dellerium, suffice to say.

When it was done, for the first time as a football fan, I saw genuine envy on the faces of all of my mates. Not just at winning the Champions League, but in the manner of it. It brought rival fans together to cheer my team home and it reaffirmed why this club and the way we do things is so special. There is a certain romance associated with Liverpool which you can't help but get absorbed in and the bitter few would never understand. YNWA.

i was 11 and got sent to bed at full time because it was already "past my bed time". Spent the next 45 mins sneaking to and from the spare bedroom to watch the game cos every time i heard movement i retreated temporarily

just remembered feeling dead guilty in the morning because my grandad had recorded the end and hadnt even watched it himself yet because he waited for me.

Was thinking about both the vacancies at Everton, arsenal and probably Chelsea, and it got me wondering; why does Fabio capello’s name never get a mention in the rumour mill for literally not a single job? He has one of the finest records of any manager, and though he has been around for a long time, so has van gaal, ancelotti, Raineri, Allardyce etc and they still get work, is he not held in high regard?

{Ed0333's Note - not being ageist capello is 71 if I was a chairman I’d think twice also.

But people keep signing hodgson! And if it's me, capello over hodgson everyday. But if you're capello. Why would you want to go to Chelsea where you're guaranteed to get sacked, everton which has problems throughout and is in need of major rebuilding, or arsenal which is going to be to be tough following in the shadow of Wenger. Enjoy retirement.


2.) 18 May 2018 12:22:50
capellos was a good coach but went downhill when he took over england. boring manager, boring football. took those well honed skills to russia, did the same and then on to china i think and also got sacked. that's his last 10 years. would you employ him!?

I think it was pretty Obvious. You can't score 30 odd premier goals from a wide position it's Ronaldo esc but to do it with ONE penalty. It can't be done.
Ridiculous numbers from the lad! Congratulations to him he's been twice as good as the excellent Kevin De Bruyne.


2.) 22 Apr 2018 22:17:30
Made up for our Egyptian king, he’s been simply phenomenal this season. Player of the month 3 times in a season, of course he deserves it. Well done mo 💪.


3.) 22 Apr 2018 23:25:25
A don't think it was ever really in doubt, not been biased but personally nobody else deserved it but salah. Well done salah lad now go on and break these records lad YNWA.


4.) 23 Apr 2018 10:32:17
Yeah, chuffed for him. Chuffed the pros made the right choice. Kdb can have no gripe losing to a record breaking goal scorer imo.


5.) 23 Apr 2018 10:40:01
To beat De Bruyne shows how good he has been as De Bruyne has been brilliant. This will really boost the lad's confidence for the remainder of the season. Shows that there always was a great player there, he was just badly managed by Mourinho. I can see Martial going the same way at United.


6.) 23 Apr 2018 19:01:26
Sorry, KDB is never going to beat a guy who has scored 41 goals in 43 games. MO all the way.


7.) 24 Apr 2018 10:03:20
BRover you need to look only PL stats, but yeah you are right 31 in 35 is still awesome! And 10 assists if I am right.

Think it speaks for the measure of the man that he pushed so hard to go to Madrid, has been there 5 years and can’t even be arsed to learn the language, don’t know what he expected to be honest.

Difference being that Fekir has let it be known for a while he willleave, has told the club well in advance and will almost certainly leave with more dignity than any of the others, he won’t have to go on strike or fake injuries to move.

Not to be cheeky Macca, but where is the right back? It’s one of the few holes left to plug.

I don’t watch enough of burnley to know but I prefer the sound of Mee much more than Tarkowski, but id take either of them and put trust in them to grow and iron out their deficiencies.

Butland still makes no sense to me for what he will cost, if we really are after a backup keeper it should be somebody with more experience who will cost little. Call me a romantic but Buffon joining us, even to just be backup, would give me shivers, but Reina would be good as well.

Ceballos seems to have been covered by the Ed’s endlessly and would be a smart buy.

Fekir and Dembele would leave us all in dreamland, I’m not fussed if dembele would only be a loan he has so much talent.

As for the speculation that this all means Salah is leaving, personally any player can leave if they so wish. Say what you like about Suarez, Coutinho, torres or mascherano, but at least they all stayed for a few years before controversially departing. If Salah honestly wants a move after one bloody season, and is incapable to see what we are building here, then sod him. As great as he is I see him as a product of the system, and we could almost certainly find somebody to do a decent job in his stead. This is all hypothetical of course as I don’t think he will leave this summer.

Klopp is a great coach himself and Can has not improved one iota under him and is almost in his mid-twenties, I honestly just don't think he is that great.

Unsurprisingly there are persons in the world, I think it is rather silly/ naive of the Ed’s to even refer to the people in question as ‘fans’, in much the same way many people of the faith do not view the extremists within their faith as representative or affiliated with them at all. Those people are not fans, they are mindless persons. How can you possibly claim to ‘support’ or be a ‘fan’ of a club while simultaneously sending the players death threats? That’s not normal human behaviour.

Regardless of that, Karius has made his own position within the club untenable. I can understand why he would be upset at klopp decision to buy a new goalkeeper but his comments since then have come across as very ungracious and quite arrogant. He had every right to be replaced as he had many chances and let everyone affiliated with the club down. If he was really that bothered, he would have shut down all his social media, sent his wife and kids off somewhere nice and spent the entire summer training his arse off; you know, like Henderson, Keita and alisson have all offered to do? But he hasn’t done that, has he. He clearly has a very high opinion of himself, but does not have the respect of his fellow professionals anymore, I think Firminos comments after the Brazil friendly are good evidence of that. He has made his own position untenable, regardless of what abuse he has been getting.

Thing is that if Courtois moves to Madrid, you can assume it will be for a fairly long period of time. I also believe madrid would move for De Gea before Alisson. I honestly wouldn’t be worrying about him jumping ship in a few years time if he signs, goalkeepers don’t move clubs very often.

Wilson and Chirivella will be given a chance in preseason, to see if they have progressed enough to challenge for a place. Woodburn is still very young, 3 years younger than those two, and is simply being managed until he is ready, which I am certain he will be at some point. Brewster should be in the same boat but sadly thinks he is better than the reserves team and needs to leave, a shame as I think he could fill the role left by Solanke and Ings this season.

Don’t forget, that’s a possibility that some of our competitions best players will be leaving as well; hazard, silva, De Gea, Courtois etc, we are one of the only clubs looking very healthy going into next season.

Ah yes, the classic supreme logic analysis of comparing players without ever actually using the reason or intelligence to compare them properly.

Maybe we should sign Jesé Rodriguez, after all he has won the champions league, played in the premier league and would be considerably cheaper Am I right😂😂😂👌🏻.
