To add insult to injury, apparently we are looking at signing Oxlade Chamberlain for £28m. Just when you thought this transfer window couldn't get any worse.


1.) 07 Aug 2017 09:58:48
since July.

2.) 07 Aug 2017 10:03:11
You have got to be the most negative person on this site. I haven't seen one positive post from you in the past few days. You need to relax and have faith in the players, the team and the manger. The window is still open. We Coutinho is still here. The manager has repeatedly said that phil is not for sale and we have no reason to think otherwise. So once again, please just relax.

3.) 07 Aug 2017 10:02:29
Hahaha at least you're consistent Mr frankly.

4.) 07 Aug 2017 10:05:52
Ox was awesome in charity shield. Perfect attributes to do well
for klopp.

5.) 07 Aug 2017 10:10:00
Fencey, what I heard was an increased offer, which makes no sense for a very mediocre player in the last year of his contract.

6.) 07 Aug 2017 11:14:03
Give Ox a break please. he is not even a liverpool player yet. Also he did not do too badly against Chealsea did he?

7.) 07 Aug 2017 11:39:17
You haven't watched the same player I have seen. Typical headless chicken English winger with added injury problems.

8.) 07 Aug 2017 15:48:28
Frankly, mr frankly. You're comments are both negative and innaccurate. You said the other day coutinho is definitely leaving and anyone who doesn't realise this is dillusional. macca now posts he's 50/ 50. Maybe it's you who is dillusional, making bold claims and having any excuse to be negative.

9.) 07 Aug 2017 16:25:07
Not sure which comments are inaccurate?

Coutinho is very unlikely to be a Liverpool player at the end of the transfer window. To think that we can offer Coutinho the trophies he'll win at Barcelona is delusional since we're simply not good enough to compete with the top teams. Footballers careers are short and he is at the stage where he has to make a choice, I don't doubt that had we brought in VVD and ? it would have been a more difficult choice as he could see the squad improving, but as it stands, Barcelona represents a better opportunity, whether we like that or not.

As for Oxlade Chamberlain, he is a very very ordinary footballer at best and I'm being generous there. His end product is awful and he has serious long term injury issues, if we sold Coutinho and brought him in that would be going backwards.

10.) 07 Aug 2017 18:10:06
Bang on kwikop. Is don't understand the negativity around him. It's not like they are saying 50 mil for him? That would be a worry.

28 is more than reasonable.

And yes, he was great against Chelsea.

I honestly think if he were playing in German league and we youtubed him to find out a bit about him, lfc fans would be pleased by link.

Every England manager picks him and he scores for england. He is no cm imo but as a winger or wing back he is cool.

I think we've cooled interest since we cooled on vvd. Therefore I think klopp was planning on playing 352. With the ox as a wing back and TAA as the other, while van dike plays in middle of back 3.

I for one would be pleased to have another England international at lfc.



10 Jun 2017 22:34:59
The papers are reporting that we now want to bid £40m for Oxlade Chamberlain. Hope it's just paper talk guff as we've trolled ourselves enough this transfer window already without wasting money like that.


1.) 10 Jun 2017 22:44:00
Of course it is.

2.) 10 Jun 2017 23:06:03
This would be the story of FSG and sum us right up if we end up buying Ox for 40 mill as our Main summer signing.

3.) 10 Jun 2017 23:14:50
Am I the only one hoping this is true? He's a decent player. I'm not sure he's worth 40m, but he'll very rarely let you down.

4.) 10 Jun 2017 23:19:44
I don't believe even Liverpool are stupid enough to spend that much on Ox.

5.) 10 Jun 2017 23:42:56
I don't get why everyone is getting wound up. The window closes in two and half months, there is plenty of time to get signings in. People are talking here as the window is closing tomorrow and no one has signed.

As a Liverpool supporter I would support them in the third division and do it with pride. Would sing "You'll Never Walk Alone" as proud and loud as I did the night of Istanbul.

Transfers don't happen at the pace the papers make it seem. The Eds can confirm a transfer can take months of negotiation and scouting prior to a bid being made. Stop following the papers and wait for something with concrete reputation to report it.

6.) 10 Jun 2017 23:43:50
I would love to see the Ox in a Liverpool shirt. Quality player mismanaged by Wenger. He would flourish under Klopp. I hope we get him.

7.) 10 Jun 2017 23:56:26
16 mil great buy. 40 not a chance.

8.) 11 Jun 2017 01:07:38
That's a rediculous fee for someone with 1 year left and doesn't play every game.

Would be a decent player for us I think though I don't really see where he fits in.

9.) 11 Jun 2017 02:07:56
20 million or under, fine.
If the price is higher, move on.

10.) 11 Jun 2017 03:19:55
I hope we get him too and I think we will. Along with vvd his name has been linked all year, those two above all others have been mentioned. Forty mil sounds a lot but so does nearly every high end deal these days. Last week Ed02, myself and others were saying we'd rather take a cheaper player that fit rather than a flashy signing for the sake of spending. The truth is ox would fit our team. Perfectly. He's English, he's young, and he's in the wrong team. He may not be cheap but I doubt it'd be as much as 40. I'd take ox over salah, for same price. He's tried and tested. Hope we get both and vvd.

11.) 11 Jun 2017 07:07:34
Jonny-Ox is tried and tested, and is a failure! and he fits our team because he's English and young? how does that work? For one we didn't have one young English regular last season and two, what's your age and nationality got to do with fitting into our team?

12.) 11 Jun 2017 07:12:40
As jackored said a year left on his contract so I can't see 40mil being the price.

Probably get him for half that if the interest is real.

13.) 11 Jun 2017 07:50:02
If they pay that its a new recruitment dept that's needed.

14.) 11 Jun 2017 07:50:25
Yeah he'd fit right in with sturiddge and Henderson on the treatment table where he would spend most of the season. Be a great buy. Exactly what we need another player made of paper to keep sturiddge company.

15.) 11 Jun 2017 07:51:00
We have enough issues with keeping our own squad fit and free from injury without paying £40m for a player who is prone to picking up injuries.

16.) 11 Jun 2017 08:24:50
But aren't we supposed to pay whatever the asking price is now? I thought all this haggling is a sign of how bad our recruitment team is. Surely refusing to pay over the odds is terrible business.

17.) 11 Jun 2017 08:25:20
Rather give Ojo a chance.

{Ed002's Note - I rather suspect Ojo will not be there next season.}

18.) 11 Jun 2017 08:32:01
Forget Ojo, he isn't good enough.

19.) 11 Jun 2017 08:53:47
Cobra if Ojo isn't good enough then Oxlade definitely isn't.

20.) 11 Jun 2017 08:53:03
Shame Ojo isn't being given a chance ed seens as he has genuine pace and is a LW, an area we need players in. Loan out likely then?

{Ed002's Note - I would think so.}

21.) 11 Jun 2017 09:06:50
I don't think people are solely upset over just this window that hasn't even opened yet. As they say there is no smoke without fire and since FSG came in it has been the same old story. After all we are the club who sold Luis and replaced him with Lambert, Balotelli and Markovic. And that was after securing CL football. I'd support LFC in any division either but it doesn't mean I am going to be happy and sit quietly whilst being taken for a mug.

22.) 11 Jun 2017 09:12:24
Frank- Ox isn't good enough, he is however better than Ojo.

23.) 11 Jun 2017 09:17:26
No way worth £40m with only a year left on his contract. £20m would be worth it I think . Could be a useful addition. But maybe it's just a way to get himself a decent renewel of his arsenal contract . Can't see it happening . maybe other areas of team need improving first. Cb, lb, dm, and another attacking player .

24.) 11 Jun 2017 09:18:19
If we do loan Ojo out, I hope it's done wisely and with a managee who will nurture him and play him, there's a lot of talent there.

{Ed002's Note - Newcastle are keen.}

25.) 11 Jun 2017 09:33:22
Not a bad option under Benitez.

26.) 11 Jun 2017 09:53:57
I'd rather he played regularly for Newcastle at this stage then sat on the bench watching our newly signed left winger play in his spot.

27.) 11 Jun 2017 09:43:04
What's klopps number? I need a word.

28.) 11 Jun 2017 15:34:14
No cobra, being young and english are bonuses. He would fit our high pressing game. He's quick both with feet and mind. An attacking player who knows how to get stuck in. Easy to forget he's only 23. Plenty of ucl experience. If u can't see how he fits then I can't help you.

29.) 11 Jun 2017 15:36:38
Ox is a failure! That's funny he scored for england yesterday!

30.) 11 Jun 2017 16:14:19
I get that it's at a different level, but Ojo completely changed the game when he came on for England u20s against Italy in the semi finals. They just couldn't cope with him.

Hopefully tonight puts a nail in us looking at Navas. He’s been shocking tonight.


{Ed002's Note - He is the one Klipperty has the Klopps for.}

1.) 11 Apr 2018 21:11:06
Hope he’s been watching tonight Ed!

2.) 11 Apr 2018 21:30:22
Hope Klipperty clips his klopps away from Keylor.

3.) 11 Apr 2018 21:27:08
Haha 'Klipperty has the Klopps for' Love it lol I don't love that he has the Klopps for Navas but what can we do, if he comes he gets my support, I just don't see the need for him been signed up unless he's to be played second fiddle to Karius.

How are you Ed2?

{Ed002's Note - I am not too bad thanks.}

4.) 11 Apr 2018 22:21:11
Klipperty had better take his klopps elsewhere cos Navas is hapless.

5.) 12 Apr 2018 00:07:43
Think Karius has the GK spot nailed down for next season. Navas won't come here to be second choice.



23 Mar 2018 19:57:11
Hate international week. Pointless friendly leaving Gomes injured. .


1.) 23 Mar 2018 21:29:06
The lad has a chance of playing in the World Cup. It’s good for our players. You can get injured in training. The good thing is it’s a knock rather than a result of over playing. He’ll be ok 👍.

2.) 23 Mar 2018 22:39:18
This is why we all love Ron.

3.) 23 Mar 2018 23:45:38
OP, I don't hate int'l week. Quite the contrary. I watched my first WC in 1986 and have been hooked on int'l footie ever since. Now can some of the games be boring and one sided? Absolutely BUT I love friendly games right before the WC cos that is where the excitement is, IMO. As for the WC, it's like Christmas to me esp. if my fav teams are playing like Brazil, Germany, Croatia, Holland, African countries etc.

4.) 24 Mar 2018 10:25:37
Nice to see someone likes to watch Croatia :)

5.) 24 Mar 2018 13:05:30
Mandzo, are you Croatian? If you are, then you should be proud. I have loved Croatia since the core of that brilliant WC '98 team of Boban, Suker, Stimac, Rosinecki etc, was part of the Yugoslavian U20 team that beat West Germany on penalties (after dumping the highly rated Brazilians out in the Q-Finals) in the 1987 U20 WC.

I have loved that team since then and when they became a country in 1994, those players alongside, Asanovic, Jarni, Soldo, Vlaovic, Stanic etc, came to England and played their way into my heart once again in Euro 96 and then IMO, could have won the WC in '98 had France's Thuram not chosen that semi final to score the ONLY two goals he has ever scored in his career in that game. Trust me, Croatia is a team I adore and ALWAYS want them to do well.

6.) 25 Mar 2018 04:00:51
Agreed, I was the same with italia 90. I liked football before that but was completely hooked after the wc.

I love international football, I love tournaments where there is good football to watch EVERYDAY! those who are underwhelmed atm will soon get caught up in it come the summer.



23 Mar 2018 19:57:12

11 Jun 2017 08:51:34
Good luck to Ojo and Solanke today! Come on boys!




08 Jun 2017 17:31:09
Well done to Don Solanke again for firing a couple of goals against Italy. The boy is a real talent.

I'd be happy with Neves. He's taken to the rough and tumble of the championship and stood head and shoulders above the rest.

Karius is a very good keeper and I have a lot of faith in the lad, to me he can develop into one of the best keepers in the premier league if he keeps on as he’s going. niinja123 you should see some of the howlers that Navas has dropped this season. He genuinely makes Mignolet look like Gordon Banks, it really is not a case of one bad game, it’s pretty much every match this season he’s had a shocker.

Karius is agile, brave, quick, alert and is gaining confidence.

Hopefully Klopp hasn’t got the Kloppers for Navas after that appalling performance against Juve. At fault for two of their goals and looked a weak link in both ties.

I’d be interested to hear who these 8 better keepers are. De Gea, yes. Courtois, possibly. But other than that I’m struggling.

Coutinho is a better footballer than Ox, but what Ox has is a willingness to work hard, physical strength and pace.
