I smell a gk merry go round this summer now Chelsea have announced they are not discussing a new contract with their gk. If we are going for a new gk we better keep it snappy or we may end up seeing our rivals sign up the gk targets we really want to see at lfc.

FatboyFatNotSlim

{Ed002's Note - It does not mean that they won't be, just that they are aware that Courtois wants to return to Spain where is young family is. Chelsea have taken the hint and have looked to someone as a replacement. That then puts them in to a stronger position - but you are right, it is likely more GKs looked to be likely to move at higher profile clubs this summer.}

Chelsea may be able to offer more money to buy the player thanks to mr abramovich but I would think we could match them on wages.
Chelsea have pull of being London based which can be a consideration for players, but can’t offer CL football.
I would hope there’s still a good chance of getting a player to choose us over Chelsea, especially given there’s a degree of uncertainty over Conte’s future.


2.) 31 May 2018 17:46:34
Aren't Chelsea low on financial power with their new Stadium bills? Or is that different now that the plans are on hold?

{Ed002's Note - There is no uncertainty over Conte and no issues over money at all.}


3.) 31 May 2018 18:22:17
It's not just about Chelsea. There's a sea change in the way we are being perceived in the footballing landscape. A complete turnaround. Just look at the caliber of the players that we are being linked with now (whether the links are true or not is meaningless here) . And compare it with 3-4 years ago when our highlight of the summer was trying to get a Clint Dempsey (with Hendo added in) . There's a clear and definite change in the way LFC is being seen as a prospective club to play for.


4.) 31 May 2018 18:27:30
Ed, do you think .....

{Ed002's Note - Try the Chelsea page, this is the Liverpool page.}


5.) 31 May 2018 19:07:36
ArAr we've always been linked to big names, we just don't remember them cause nothing came off it. weather there is a chance of them signing is very relevant now. Luckily there definitely is more of a draw to play for Liverpool right now. Champions league football, the brand of football we play, klopp, and getting to 2 European finals I recent years will have helped.

Question for the eds. Do you see us trying to complete any business before the WC kicks off. Seeing as our transfer window closes 2 weeks before everyone else? Or do you see the summer window being even more frantic towards the deadline?

FatboyFatNotSlim

{Ed001's Note - I expect Premier League clubs to look to do business early, though it will no doubt be a frantic rush after the WC as well.}


1.) 23 Feb 2018 09:33:58
Morning Ed, I have been reading some of the midfield suggestions you have made and the type of players we might target. I understand the urgent need to liven up the midfield and bring the much needed energy. My worry is agains't teams like Spurs, and City they will pin us back at the end of games when we drop off and we still won't be able to control games.

I don't know as well how those type of players will help with the breaking down of the so called park the bus teams, Man U etc. In an ideal world you want the player to have great energy, awareness
and ability on the ball but that probably isn't possible. I think I slightly favour the more technically gifted player, we really need someone to to be able to control a game.

Maybe we could target both types of player for the midfield? But as we also need goals and assists from the midfield and the ability to cover the front 3 it is going to take some real quality recruitment (and plenty dosh) .

{Ed001's Note - Ndidi is very good on the ball and still young enough to improve.}


2.) 23 Feb 2018 10:25:34
ok thanks for the reply.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}


3.) 23 Feb 2018 11:01:59
Ed am I right in thinking Ndidi is a player you have suggested and would like, and not a player we have shown any interest in yet mate?

{Ed001's Note - yes you are right. I wish we would go for him, but we have shown no interest.}


4.) 23 Feb 2018 12:29:58
Ed1 it's Gary Medel all over again haha.

{Ed001's Note - very much so.}


5.) 23 Feb 2018 12:48:32
Yes Ndidi!


6.) 23 Feb 2018 13:26:26
Thoughts on Kovacic/ Ceballos Ed1? And out of interest have we shown interest in Kovacic (I know we have Ceballos) . Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - not in Kovacic, who has not performed well since moving to Madrid. Ceballos we have, I am sceptical on him, never really impressed me as anything special. I have not seen a lot of him though, so I could have just missed what he offers.}


7.) 23 Feb 2018 13:43:43
Thanks for the reply Ed1. I would agree with you on Kovacic this season. When I saw some of the games he played in last season I thought he doing alright, just my opinion though and I didn't see every game he played in.

{Ed001's Note - I didn't see him much last season either, even while in Spain as the coverage of Real Madrid is just sickening out there. I am just relaying what I was told as to why our previously held interest has waned, rather than giving my opinion on him. Sorry I should have made that clear, my mistake. I normally try and make it clear when it is not my opinion, apologies.}


8.) 23 Feb 2018 13:57:28
No problem Ed1. Realistically it is hard to monitor firsthand every player we could be interested in so I guess we base some of our judgement on sources we trust.

{Ed001's Note - I used to try and make an effort to watch as many as I could, but these days I don't have time with all the research for the articles, as well as writing them.}


9.) 23 Feb 2018 13:58:42
If we're taking anyone from Madrid in my opinion it should be Asensio. The kid oozes class every time I watch him.

Keita and Henderson with Asensio in front of them behind our front 3, there would be no need to buy defenders we'd just score 10 a game.

{Ed001's Note - Klopp is one of many who would love to add him in the summer.}


10.) 23 Feb 2018 15:42:50
I'd take Asensio over Lemar, that kid has potential to win the Balon D'Or one day.

After what I've just seen. i think I can forgive Karius.

Modric has been epic.

3.) 21 Jun 2018 21:41:51
Every single time Ronaldo is asked to deliver on the biggest stage he does
Messi sadly does not
G. O. A. T out of these two, easy for me

RONALDO.


4.) 21 Jun 2018 22:11:01
John I don't remember Ronaldo doing anything in the last 2 world cups.


5.) 21 Jun 2018 22:37:44
Ronaldo is clearly aging better than Messi and I bet he is at the next world cup. But in their primes I think Messi just edges it, probably because he plays in a more exciting position.


6.) 22 Jun 2018 01:40:04
You can’t be “GOAT out of these 2”.
GOAT is GOAT and that honour stops with Maradona.


7.) 22 Jun 2018 05:40:38
And due to these 4 goals and counting he's gna end up getin the balon dor ahead of salah wich makes me sad.


 

 

29 May 2018 17:20:43
Hopefully we can finish our ins before August as the window closes early. Our midfield already looks spicy with ox naby and fabby. not forgetting hen do who u do rate and gini is a good bench option IMO so I'd like him to stay. Really hope woody gets game time as he gives me a buzz (pun intended) . Wilson too although we need a quality bench to close the gap to city. After being in disbelief since Saturday I've calmed down but I still won't trust karius in the big games to not fumble unfortunately so if he stays it has to be as backup to a gk of higher calibre if the monies involved are viable for us ofcourse. I've liked the partnership lovvers and virgil have formed. So that new cb to start with virgil I don't think will be needed. Imo we are probably a few signings short of having a team that can really have a say in the league next season.

Not directly Liverpool related. But noticed Russia got a 22k fine for racist chants. I don't understand how they expect to irradicate racism with a fine like that. UEFA and FIFA are clearly taking the P.

FatboyFatNotSlim

1.) 08 May 2018 20:35:20
That 22k fine should eradicate the problem lol, anyone think it will end up being a s**t will world cup? Build up, excitement just isn't there this time round, not to mention there'll probably ufc fight nights after every game😂.


2.) 08 May 2018 21:22:38
England got a 35k fine for wearing poppies, Fifa need to sort it out big time.


3.) 08 May 2018 22:08:57
It doesn't do much except maybe give the Russian FA a kick up the backside to at least TRY and do something about it, once they get enough fines.
The only thing they can really do is have more security or cameras in place and perma ban the guilty parties. It won’t stop it in the foreseeable future that’s for sure :/.


4.) 08 May 2018 23:39:19
Russia have paid FIFA a lot of money not to be made an example of in legitimate World Cup fees. It's too late and I doubt they have the inclination to hand out any severe punishments at this stage.


5.) 09 May 2018 08:57:06
This is Russia guys. If the state weren't fine with them doing the chants, they wouldn't be doing them. It's really that simple.


 

 

25 Apr 2018 20:15:54
Oh mercy any one seen what navas has done in goal. I'd rather keep migs than sign him. He's complete dog waste.

FatboyFatNotSlim

 

 

25 Apr 2018 20:12:45
Sooooooo who do we want in the final? I'd prefer real I think our front 3 will destroy that defence. Also. Side note. Does the fact allisson shipped 5 goals last night mean we should look elsewhere? IMO no because he made no errors. But conceding 5 is embarrassing.

FatboyFatNotSlim

1.) 25 Apr 2018 20:39:02
I’m sure every top class keeper has conceded 5 goals in their time. De Gea has for a start. If shots are reigning in on your goal because of poor defending your not going to save everything no matter how good you are.


2.) 25 Apr 2018 20:40:39
People can't judge Allison on one performance, he's a great keeper, a keeper I'd have at Liverpool tomorrow, unfortunately I don't think that'll happen.

Give me either team in the final, we'll do any of them.


3.) 25 Apr 2018 20:43:41
I don’t think Alisson played badly, we were just on fire.


4.) 25 Apr 2018 20:50:05
I don't think Alisson could've stopped us from scoring 5 goals, but if Karius had flown out to the edge of his area and a shot was lifted over him and then dropped a corner later in the game, we'd probably say something about him. Any keeper is going to have a 'could've done better' moment once in a while.

My view on 'keepers is:

There's no point in buying someone like Butland, who might be a bit more consistent with his shot stopping than Karius, but not better than him overall, and actually weaker in some areas. I'd rather continue with Karius, who, remember, has yet to have a full season playing with the same defence consistently. If we replace Karius, it has to be on someone significantly better.

But buying a top quality 'keeper is going to be monstrously expensive. Alisson will probably set us back at least £50m, more if you believe the papers. Is he £50m+ worth of an improvement over Karius? I don't know. With the way football transfer fees are going currently, what even constitutes value for money at £50m?


5.) 25 Apr 2018 21:11:09
Spot on, SR. Butland is at Stoke for a reason. He is average, error and injury prone and overrated. IMO, he is not in Karius' league and would be poor for our system. He's English which is why he still gets air time in the media, IMO. Had he not been, no one would care cos I know I wouldn't. Stoke is his level now while Karius is 90 mins from a CL final, leading an undefeated team and leading the CL in clean sheets. Butland is not in Karius league and IMO, never was.


6.) 25 Apr 2018 22:20:18
Interesting that SG ripped into him for his comments about Mark Hughes as well.


7.) 25 Apr 2018 22:20:42
I thought Alisson made a mistake with Salah's 2nd. He came charging out. He had a covering defender coming across so probably would have been better staying back. I see no reason to replace Karius though. He has deserved the chance to be No.1 for the whole of next season.


8.) 26 Apr 2018 00:58:17
Are we in the final?

I remember a an LFC vs Newcastle game in 08 that ended 5-1, and Shay Given was the man of the match - against a keeper having anything other than the game of their life it would have been 10 or 11 at least.

I think it's going to stay mad the way Chinese clubs are slapping huge figures on players like Oscar and such. That's pushing up values too. Not to mention the oil monies coming into the game. Remember when Rio Ferdinand to United raised eyebrows.

I agree. More needs to be done in regards to head injuries not just by medical teams but referees too. Karius did complain to the ref that he was elbowed in the head so maybe in future referees become more insistent on play being stopped for some sort of medical check. These things could be very very serious karius got a lucky escape. With that being said I hope the lads career isn't affected by the injury. Any talk about replacements is a different conversation.
