Is there any rumour on Keita. Is he still very much in Klopps plans for next season and is this season just being written off as a bedding in period? I’m by no means suggesting that we get rid as I really want this guy to succeed and he was probably the player I was most looking forward to seeing this season. This is simply a query as you know what the rumour mill is like suggesting Klopp might look to sell back to Germany with Bayern / Dortmund linked.


1.) 05 Apr 2019 13:29:17
Ed001 answered a similar question below.

2.) 05 Apr 2019 22:35:40
Scored tonight. classic post.

3.) 06 Apr 2019 00:34:03
There is a rumour that Keita scored against Southampton.

4.) 06 Apr 2019 03:43:16
Please post on every match talking about the rumour departure of Naby.
We need you jk23.

5.) 06 Apr 2019 07:08:17
Well Naby did score today so hopefully this is the trigger he needs to finally kickstart his LFC career. He deserves one more season before we start thinking about possible destinations for him.



15 Aug 2018 15:56:12
Mignolet’s agent in talks with Napoli apparently. If he does go then all the best to him.


{Ed002's Note - Napoli want one of David Ospina or Simon Mignolet. Besiktas want one of Loris Karius, Ospina or Mignolet. Mignolet was priced out of a move to Fenerbahce. If Liverpool were to drop their demands for a loan fee for Karius, I suspect something could be done.}

1.) 15 Aug 2018 17:17:08
Currently in talks with Arsenal fro Ospina so that option looks dead in water. I think we will be stuck with him until at least January now.

2.) 15 Aug 2018 17:17:08
Cheers Ed002. A fountain of knowledge as per usual.

3.) 15 Aug 2018 17:52:35
Spot on Ed as usual with your info. You explained both Karius and Mignolet could well leave in August. I have to say though I thought Karius would stay. Kids not ready to be back up imo.

{Ed002's Note - He should have moved at the first opportunity. Staying at the club puts him in an untenable situation but I would not put it beyond Klopp to force him to stay.}

4.) 15 Aug 2018 18:51:54
He does want to leave then Ed? Was at Anfield on sunday and he seemed happy enough in the warm up, even signed a few programmes. Shame really.

{Ed002's Note - His position is completely untenable.}

5.) 15 Aug 2018 19:37:45
Do you mean untenable within the club? Certainly the fans would be happy for him to stay as a number 2.

{Ed002's Note - You must have a very short memory.}

6.) 15 Aug 2018 20:33:42
While there are some cretins, I think the ovation he received on his Anfield return speaks volumes to how the real fans feel about him.

7.) 15 Aug 2018 20:53:43
Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. At this stage I’d be happy for Karius to go and prove himself elsewhere and Migs to stay as reserve. 👍🏻.

8.) 15 Aug 2018 21:22:47
Saying ‘He should have moved at the first opportunity’ implies that he has had a chance to move and didn’t take it. Therefore I hardly think we can blame Klopp if he is still at Liverpool when the window closes.

{Ed002's Note - I am sure Klopp is not responsible for anything at all.}

9.) 15 Aug 2018 22:54:59
Actually I think it is fair to blame Klopp for the goalkeeper situation at the club, it has been a shambles for some time. Mignolet and Karius were told they were no1 keeper, then Ward has just wasted a whole year out of his career when it was obvious he needed to go back out on loan for his sake.
Ed02 is right, Karius position is untenable, the vile abuse he and his family has received is despicable. Any mistake Karius made this season would have been magnified and the pressure he would have felt at away grounds would have been too great.
However i do not understand why Liverpool put crazy prices on players they clearly do not want, and put off any potential suitors, surely a more reasonable price to move the goalkeepers on would be beneficial to everybody in the long run.

10.) 17 Aug 2018 10:04:49
*”Karius recieves abuse from some cretins; let’s blame Klopp it must be his fault”

Actually no, it’s the fault of a few mindless persons why Karius will struggle to hold down a role with the club.

11.) 17 Aug 2018 22:09:32
I never said it was Klopps fault for the abuse Karius received, as you rightly say that was down to the cretins. I think he handled the Danny Ward situation poorly. How was Ward going to get game time over Karius and Mignolet, the whole season was wasted for him.
Klopp is doing a brilliant job and bought so well this season, but we are allowed to occasionally criticize him, the goalkeeper situation definitely could have been handled better.

Ed001 what's your honest thoughts on some of the excuses Klopp has come up with recently. Blaming the grass for being too long, pitches being too dry, the wind and snow etc. Not to mention this snow in the penalty box incident v Leicester.

I love Klopp and clearly he is an intelligent man and personally I don't think he believes any of these excuses and is using it to potentially shield the team. But it's making him and the club look a little silly. What's wrong with saying we didn't perform to our best and sadly we didn't get the win or the opposition played well but we move onto the next game. Other clubs are not wanting us to win the title and some of these excuses are giving them more ammo and to be honest you cannot defend the indefensible. Interested to hear other posters thoughts as well.


{Ed001's Note - I really don't care and don't listen to press conferences etc anyway. They really are irrelevant. Most of those excuses he actually have a point about and he never 'blamed' them, just mentioned them as an issue. I am surprised you even see this as anything other than media bull to fill back pages with crap.}

1.) 03 Feb 2019 16:01:24
I mean, those are pretty standard 'excuses'. Most managers aren't going to come out and slam the team in public. And if you think those are silly, what about managers like Ferguson blaming the team's third kit for a loss, and Houllier saying that Fowler's celebration was inspired by some Cameroonian grass eating ritual he learned from Rigobert Song?

{Ed025's Note - that last one was a whopper..

2.) 03 Feb 2019 16:27:26
Can never understand Lfc "supporters" only dying to post about something ridiculous in the hope an Ed or two might agree with him, they were nothing comments by a manager who generally doesn't make excuses. The club doesn't look silly, they're top of the league with the best manager around! enjoy.

3.) 03 Feb 2019 16:54:57
Little Naby I don’t require the need for an Ed to agree with me I have my own opinions and mindset. I can never understand the snowflakes who seem to get offended or upset by people making comments on a comment group. Each to their own hey.

4.) 03 Feb 2019 17:13:20
Snowflakes? look at your original post mate.

5.) 03 Feb 2019 17:18:02
JK, you should know better mate, lol 😂.

6.) 03 Feb 2019 17:57:01
Yeah, basically don't take any notice of press conferences. As long as the team does the business that's all that counts. and it's sad when people do creep up to the eds. terrible. By the way ed. have you had your teeth done? You look great. And that waistcoat totally rocks with your chino's.

{Ed001's Note - I need to switch off that webcam obviously.....

{Ed033's Note - Maybe Roller was talking about ED025.}

7.) 03 Feb 2019 18:03:25
Come on guys. You should realize these pre and post game press conferences are nothing but glorified PR events designed to build up suspense and interest in the games. That's all they're good for. They can't all be serious and full of accurate info. Imagine being a manager and having to do 76 of those in a season. Would you take each and every one seriously and blurt out the truth and nothing but the truth? The facts are helpful (who's playing and who's not) but all else is mostly mind games and posturing for the media to reprint.

8.) 03 Feb 2019 18:22:28
Tbh, if I were a manager I think I'd enjoy the pressers the most. Our PR man would love trying to tie down the circles I'd try to run around the media.

{Ed0333's Note - what?

9.) 03 Feb 2019 18:31:46
Just enjoy the positives, don't look for negatives that aren't there. Im not even getting stressed watching this title race. what's better, battling it out with city or just waiting for another season to peater out, looking forward to the summer's signìgs in February like we usually do?

10.) 03 Feb 2019 21:09:20
Mcgoveb I should mate 🙄. I’ll just go back to not posting anything that raises debate and just read how rosey everything is and how we are guaranteed to win the league again this year.

11.) 03 Feb 2019 22:50:52
Agreed ed01. These press conferences and pundit talk have to fill 5 minutes of television time, so people who are not exactly Oxford educated come up with half arsed theories and spit words out without really thinking about it.

12.) 04 Feb 2019 06:44:51
Come on guys, let's spare the OP some slack. It's been a boring transfer window, the team's been doing well and is looking settled. We all need something to talk about, even if it's splitting hairs!

To each their own. Talking about the pitch etc always reminds me of an old Ranieri press conference when he was the Chelsea manager. The pitch was full mud like, and he said something like "Life is a beach" at the end of the game - such a crack up!



04 Jan 2019 11:02:06
What’s everyone’s thoughts on Wolves mon night? I think before last nights defeat we may have seen a number of changes for the game on mon but does Klopp now risk the backlash of back to back defeats if we play a weakened team. For me my honest opinion is I don’t care if we go out to Wolves on mon night as long as we beat Brighton next week and get our heads back 100% on the league campaign.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 11:37:48
I think most will want to play a strong team because we need to pick right back up. I think we need to rest Salah and Firmino for sure.

I'd like to see Keita, Shaq and Fabinho start in midfield.

If Brewster is fit, I'd like to see him start.

2.) 04 Jan 2019 12:48:59
Klopp will play a solid team with the likes of Shaq, Fab, Naby, Studge, Allison, Clyne mixed in with some young players. Klopp would want a reaction and will not be taking the game for granted so those who play had better get ready to give 100%.

3.) 04 Jan 2019 23:34:42
I think it’s an ideal game for Kieta to grab the bull by the horns and put himself back into contention for a starting place.



02 Dec 2018 13:38:12
Ed001 just read this online so I’ve copied and pasted it so please don’t shoot the messenger. What’s your thoughts on this please mate as I’m 99% certain it is BS.

*Klopp, Buvac separation behind Liverpool issues- Serbian journalist*

A Serbian Journalist Milan Marin has offered an insighted detail that Jurgen Klopp is deliberately abandoning Liverpool's way of attacking football as a way to prove to long-time friend Zeljko Buvac

"Many Liverpool fans don't know the real reason why their team is playing way it is, but Mr Klopp does and he is doing it deliberately, I have it on good ground from a friend who works at Liverpool and is close to team and was introduced to me by Buvac when he was at Liverpool. He told me Klopp doesn't want anything to do with any input of Buvac, such is now the hatred of two friends who were best friends from 1990s and worked from 2001 as managers it is sad" he said

"Liverpool fans ask where is the pressing gone? The truth is, Klopp doesn't need the press, it was Buvac style. It's like two friends becoming enemies and even the car one bought for the other, is either parked on the garage or you don't want to drive it again. Naby Keita is a victim of this fall out, because he was bought as a recommendation of Buvac who has relations in Leipzig, but now Klopp isn't playing him, many of the transfers done this summer were all recommended by Buvac and Klopp isn't using them because he wants to introduce a new style and win in his own way. Liverpool fans believe Liverpool can't reproduce last season form, but the issue is Mr Klopp doesn't want to use last season's tactics known as Zeljko Buvac tactics" he added.


{Ed001's Note - it is nonsense mate, Keita got injured or we would have seen a lot more of him and he was signed in the main on the recommendation of one of our players, not Buvac. I am quite sure there is an element of trying to do things differently to prove a point, but it is more than just about that. If the players and staff believed that Klopp was just throwing a petty tantrum about a break-up with his mate, do you think we would not have already known about it? They fell out because they had different ideas and the changes are because of those different ideas not because of the fall out. It was the cause not a consequence of the fall out.}

1.) 02 Dec 2018 13:59:57
Cheers for the reply Ed001 and I agree with everything you've just said.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate. It is just spin to turn an old story into something new. There is still a few months to go before we know for sure if Klopp or Buvac were right, but so far the results are suggesting Buvac was not correct, though the performances are not as exciting.}

2.) 02 Dec 2018 14:18:25
This is my point of view. I have seen on this page, many a time and long long before Buvac had left that the system that they used had been "found out". That Klopp hadn't won a trophy in many years using said system, with Buvac by his side at all times. Also that Klopp needed a defence coach to help with the goals we are leaking etc etc. Well we don't leak goals anymore and we are actually pretty good at defending and as far as I know he didn't get a defence coach, I might be wrong tho. We have also changed our system overall this season, maybe not so dynamic but sitting pretty in the League, trying to keep up with by far the best squad in our league. Yet you hear the "experts" coming out and saying how we miss Buvac. Well we didn't win anything with Buvac here or in Germany, so I'm not surprised Klopp has changed the system a bit, but it seems to me that he is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. Give the guy a break. We aren't perfect but in my opinion a far more complete team than we were when Buvac had his input.

3.) 02 Dec 2018 15:44:08
There's always going to be people out there wanting to stir things up for us and get people thinking in overdrive mode, this is the exact reason I avoid reading stuff on other sites because 99.9% is complete BS.

4.) 02 Dec 2018 17:15:01
is that player sadio mane by anychance ed01?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate.}

5.) 02 Dec 2018 22:33:24
Irish Rover, you are a beuty. That is the exact point I have been making ever since this whole Buvac nonsense kept coming up. Klopp gave credit to Buvac for being his "brain" and being integral to his success. Suddenly cos they had a falling out, people seem tpo think that Klopp cannot function w/ o him. Abject nonsense. Buvac is NO genius and the last time I checked he was an assistant. if he was that good why did he not go make a name for himself as David Wagner (Klopp's BFF) did?

Also as you say, people bleating on and on about how "we were playing flying football and now that Buvac is gone, we no longer are". Again, a crock of nonsense. Was it not the same Buvac who has been here when we were conceding goals for fun and getting pummeled by the big teams all of last season? Did we win anything with him as assistant ever? Did't think so. This whole Buvac crap is nothing but a Nothing-burger. It is not a thing. Never was and NEVER wil be. So those who keep parroting the same nonsense (esp. from some crackpot Sebian journalist) will continue to embarrass themselves with their ignorance.

6.) 02 Dec 2018 21:00:38
ed how does that work with mane? Do the club go and ask him about naby knowing he was friends with him or is it common enough for senior players in the squad to recommend players to the coaching staff?

{Ed001's Note - it is very common for players to recommend other players. It can be any of a hundred ways, depending on the manager's relationship with the players.}

7.) 03 Dec 2018 11:18:53
cheers ed appreciate the reply🖒🖒.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome.}

8.) 03 Dec 2018 12:21:45
That means mane has a very healthy relationship with klopp!



27 Oct 2018 08:54:05
Klopp been getting a bit of stick from media and other clubs about the amount of money he spent on Allison, VVD, Kieta and Fabinho and not winning anything but not a lot has been mentioned on Liverpool’s recruitment of Roberston 8, Milner 0, Shaqiri 13 and Gomez 3.5 mill. We had to spend big to keep pace with the big boys but that is some fantastic bargains in this day and age. The first 4 cost around 250 mill and the latter 4 cost around 25 mill. They do say football is a funny old game.


1.) 27 Oct 2018 09:54:11
JK23, I don't give two flips of the coin about what the media think of LFC or Klopp and you shouldn't as well. Even Klopp doesn't cos he told Carra to his face last season during an interview that he never listens nor does not care to what he nor his other deluded pundit (Valencia's legendary manager Gary Neville) has to say.

I mean, It was this same media that was giving Klopp loads for not spending the money required to fix our issues and compete for trophies. Now that he has spent the money 'required" to fix our issues and tho not all is perfect yet, we are doing the business points-wise and competing for trophies and for now with City, they are now saying Klopp spent too much money and won nothing. WHICH IS IT?

These guys always want to have it both ways which is why I don't care for them nor what they say. I would rather listen/ read the opinions of those like yourself and the Ed's, on this forum than the media who always have an agenda as to who they want to bring down and protect depending on the day or the weather forecast.

2.) 27 Oct 2018 10:09:07
They're just trying to lay the pressure on mate, I think the lads and Klopp are more focused over feeling pressurised so in my opinion the pundits, media and other clubs are just wasting their time, the media I get it, they always talk rubbish but the clubs need to focus on their own teams not ours, the pundits well just like the media, gobrubbishs. They'll all be eating their words WHEN we win the league this season.

3.) 27 Oct 2018 10:22:32
We didn't spend to just keep up.

Where at a point where there's only so many players better than what we have, and they cost money.

I did try to highlight what you have said earlier though. In the fact we have Robertson, Trent, Gomez, wijnaldum, shaqiri and even mane which total just 80 million.

4.) 27 Oct 2018 10:49:41
The media and pundits repeatedly said that Liverpool needed a major upgrade in goalkeepers. Karius and Mignolet regularly criticized.
Clearly the defence/ goal positions have been massively improved, but to get the best for those positions now costs big money.
If Liverpool had not spent the money on these players the same media and pundits would have been tearing into Klopp for not improving the obvious weak areas in the team.
You're damned if you do, damned if you don't where the media are concerned. Criticizing Liverpool who are currently joint top with a team who have spent significantly more is absurd.

5.) 27 Oct 2018 11:10:45
Perfectly put BRover mate.

6.) 27 Oct 2018 11:17:34
Karius and klavan were both dirt cheap too and although both had some poor games they also had some great games and helped us qualify for Europe twice.

Solanke for 3 mil too. People saying klopp is a hypocrite are hypocritical themselves. Creaming themselves over the signing of Alison when it sells their papers and then slagging it when that sells. It's rubbish.

Our front three, often hailed as the best in the world and none of them was North of 40mil, 35mil actually.

7.) 27 Oct 2018 11:35:56
How can he win anything as a result of buying Keita Alisson and Fabinho when they’ve been here all of 3 months?

8.) 27 Oct 2018 11:42:41
Gents please don’t take my original comment the wrong way I’m not moaning about the money spent or do I care what the media say. I’m just making a personal comment on a football forum. I just found it quite incredible when I saw the price of the cheaper 4. For me I believe we did spend big to keep up and it had to be spent. We were 90 mins away from winning the CL last season but were way off winning the league which we have been for some time. Without the definite additions of VVD and Allison that wasn’t going to change this season and Fabinho and keita when settled will no doubts add more chink to our armour.

9.) 27 Oct 2018 11:46:25
I know, right 87red? There's a reason why I don't care for these hacks in the media who are as confident in what they spew, as the weatherman who thinks he knows for a fact, what the weather will be tmrw, lol.

10.) 27 Oct 2018 13:25:29
We’ve spent the money but only the real big bucks recently. We didn’t have Keita, Allison, Fabihno or Shaqiri last season and VVD arrived only in in January?

The muppets writing tosh in the tabloids should judge this team at the end of the season.

11.) 27 Oct 2018 14:33:29
Good point jk27.



01 Sep 2018 16:53:11
I know we’ve said a few of the players are short of fitness after coming back late but surely 2 weeks away now playing meaningless internationals is just going to make that worse. Huge fixture up next as well against Spurs.


{Ed002's Note - Don't forget that Salah needed to endure that trip back in a tiny business jet from Nice early yesterday and really should have been given the week off. I did the same arduous journey and I was not expected to play today - in fact it was never even suggested that I would.}

1.) 01 Sep 2018 16:59:57
Ed002 you could have played in midfield for us today. I don’t think you could have done any worse lol.

{Ed002's Note - Or in goal.}

2.) 01 Sep 2018 17:02:03
don't sell yourself short Ed, you could have played at least a half.

3.) 01 Sep 2018 17:10:15
A small trip to Nice is hardly a long haul flight though, Ed002 - although I guess that explains why Klipperty took him off early today.

I imagine most of the Real Madrid players who were at the awards will be starting for Madrid this evening.

Red Sandman.

{Ed002's Note - I was tired when I got back.}

4.) 01 Sep 2018 17:23:52
I don’t understand this post. It is the same for Spurs too. Stop moaning.

5.) 01 Sep 2018 17:30:28
Kramer no one forced you to read the post or to comment. You’re now moaning about people moaning 🤦🏻‍♂️.

6.) 01 Sep 2018 18:04:05
Poor performance = Grindinng out results. The new way 😁😁.

7.) 01 Sep 2018 19:35:14
Sorry JK but I had to read the post to know what was about. Believe me if I could go back in time and not read it I would. I’m happy you admit that you were moaning but I still don’t understand the purpose of your post. Was it simply that you fancied having a moan about something?

8.) 02 Sep 2018 05:02:00
change the record harry, i think you are secretly seething that we're winning cos its gives you less to moan about ( but yet you still find a way) if we were on 6 points and city were in our place having done the same you would be purring with their praises about how great teams can play poor but find a way to win. as soon as liverpool do the same its you its a different story and you feel the need to put them down. its 3 point whether we played well or bad. get over it - that's how titles are won. Sorry klopp hasn't given you more ammo to complain this month.

Gmil you do realise our defence and attack contribute to keeping that possession as well. The midfield are very good at breaking up play and yes they are pretty good at keeping possession of the ball. Would be nice to see them being a little bit more creative with all this possession though.

Not sure our midfield are set up to control games. They look more like they are set out to disrupt games with their work rate.

Redwolf you can’t accuse someone of hyperbole for claiming Mane won the CL on their own when half a page down you claimed Ox would have won us the league if he was fit lol.

However I do agree though. We win as a team and we lose as a team. Every one of those lads on the pitch are just as important as each other in getting us the wins. Yes some may be better than others but they still as important. You’re only as strong as your weakest link.

Agree on that. The difference between our defence and Arsenal’s is ours are not playing to their usual standard where Arsenal’s are not very good overall. Cabellos looked brilliant against Burnley so it will be interesting to see how he looks against our midfield as that’s where it could be won or lost. If Arsenal’s attack turn up but our defence play well then we can keep them out. If our attack turn up then Arsenal’s defence will not be able to handle them.

Nothing against Adrian but I cannot wait for Allison to be back. The guy is as cool as a cucumber and brings a massive calming influence to our defence.

Think it’s going to be a cracker and potentially a high scorer. I’m going to go 4-3. The front 3 pick themselves and only area in defence up for grabs is who plays out of Gomez and Matip. For me the interesting one is who does Klopp go with in midfield. What’s everyone’s preferred midfield for Arsenal if they were picking the team? I think I would go with Fab, Wiji and Ox. Think all 3 are different and bring variation.

Redwolf no worries mate. Didn’t mean any offence when I said the word ‘mental’. That word is used a lot in my work environment when we argue/ debate stuff. You saying you think Klopp would have picked him isn’t facts though and neither is predicting the outcome of a match on a player who didn’t play and you asked for facts. Practice what you preach I believe the saying is. Always enjoy a debate with you and have upmost respect for your opinion even if it’s different to mine.
