So once the window is shut, does that mean we still can’t sell any players even though the window isn’t shut for some of the other European leagues? If so we did really poorly in terms of outgoings. There’s at least 3-4 players that had to be moved on permanently.

The rest of Europe can sign players from England until the end of the month.


2.) 09 Aug 2018 16:54:17
We can sell, just not buy. So it completely negates the actual reason they made this change 🤣 for example Chelsea so be haunted until the end of aigust with hazards transfer but can't replace him. Mental.

They either all needed to close and open together or just sodding leave it.


3.) 09 Aug 2018 16:58:35
Kman, European clubs could still buy pl players I believe. So I'm guessing non European teams could still buy from us, although I'm not sure how often that happens. I can't think of any. Lucas was going to go back to South america before he signed for. Was it lazio? .

Dembele to arsenal. Wow. Arsenal have had a fairly quiet window but have bought well. Dembele could be a game changer for then. They have a good squad. The spine isn't as weak as it was.

The whole Karius situation is getting out of hand now, on both sides of the spectrum. He has to be taken completely out of the firing line and needs to work on his game big time, it’s clear he hasn’t been doing enough to rectify his mistakes because they’re happening non stop. I think the abuse he’s getting is disgusting and people need to take football a little less serious, I’m a huge football mark but when it gets personal then it’s time to reiterate your own life.

I would have said before the preseason that I’d like Karius to stay and compete with our new GK. However I have always said we need a better keeper to come in, I even said that last season before the CL final as I was never convinced by him and it was clear as daylight he’s a mistake prone player just like migs, In fact for me, he’s worse than migs. At this point I think it’s almost better for him to leave entirely or at the very least go out on loan to another league. I personally think he’ll never recover enough to come back to Liverpool and make it but he can do it elsewhere, which is a shame. If that were to be the case I wouldn’t mind keeping migs but I’m sure migs also wants to leave for first team football. With ward, migs and Karius all leaving, we would definitely need another keeper. This whole situation has become a bit of a shambles and has spread further than it should have, the abuse is sickening but it just doesn’t look like Karius is doing himself any favours. I think we need a new GK coach as well, no idea why that hasn’t been addressed, I’ve done my research on achterburg last season and he has nowhere near the credentials to be working at a club like Liverpool, I thought the same with Ian ayre and he eventually got replaced and look at the rewards.

Kman92

1.) 23 Jul 2018 18:44:33
I really think Karius would benefit from a season loan to a Bundisliga side. Back in his homeland away from the pressure of the PL. Give him time to work on his game and rebuild his shattered confidence.


2.) 23 Jul 2018 18:49:25
Great post- agree with almost everything except achterburg. With Klopp already losing his right hand man I think the detriment to team morale and Klopps own coaching performance should achterburg leave would far outweigh the potential benefit of bringing in a new goalkeeper coach- if there would be any.
I hardly think a goalkeeper coach can be blamed for the type of mistakes Karius is making, a goalkeeper coach can help with technique, positioning, decision making but they can’t prevent karius totally losing concentration and making ridiculous mistakes. That’s a combination of lack of confidence and Karius personal/ concentration flaws, I’m not sure any GK coach in the world can help with that.
Allison will be a good test for achterburg for the first time at Liverpool he has a keeper who’s already showed he has all ability/ skill set required to be exceptional so let’s see what he doesn’t with him.


3.) 23 Jul 2018 20:01:23
Rajp, I get where you are coming from but some of the top managers in the game make changes to their coaching staff every now and then when they think they need new ideas, Alex Ferguson did it all the time. Since achterburg has come in, we’ve seen the sharp decline of possibly the greatest Liverpool keeper in the PL era in Pepe Reina, a good young keeper with huge potential that help keep Sunderland up in Simon Mignolet and the same again with Loris Karius, all with little to no improvements, in fact in some cases they’ve gone backwards. I don’t think achterburg leaving damages team harmony/ morale, you need change sometimes to succeed and when something’s quite clearly broken, you need to address it and fix it.

I wish the Buvac situation never happened so I agree that may have a detrimental effect especially since I’m not totally convinced by his replacement. I think long term this could affect Klopp, we saw what happened to Rafa after pako, he’s still a top manager but at what club has he reached the levels he did when he was at Valencia and Liverpool. Let’s hope history doesn’t repeat itself.


4.) 24 Jul 2018 11:29:08
I think it's appalling what people are saying to Karius personally, shameful

But

Why has he publicly come out about his feelings for this Alisson thing? He needs to shut his mouth, seems an arrogant man for someone who cost us a champions league.


 

 

18 Jul 2018 16:14:12
I personally think it was out of Fekir or Allison for us (in terms of a big transfer) and we just went with Allison after it was made clear we’d be favourites and the player wanted to join us after Madrid had pulled out. Maybe something swayed us off the Fekir deal completely or we just identified GK as more of a weakness than the number 10 position especially with the inclusion of Shaqiri, which it is, as we saw last season. I think if we were to sanction another deal that’s £60m+ someone of worth has to be leaving. Regardless, if things stay as they are, Salah mane and firmino staying and Allison arriving I think we can put aside the while ‘owners don’t care about this club’ debate behind. They have fully backed us and Klopp and they’d be little excuses for next season, we have a team capable or winning things. Only thing I’m worried about is the whole Buvac situation.

Kman92

1.) 18 Jul 2018 16:17:16
What Buvac situation? He has left and has been replaced by Pep Lijnders.


2.) 18 Jul 2018 19:02:05
The situation that he’s been klopps right hand man for the majority of his managerial career and has had huge success with him and pep lijnders is a rather untried and untested coach that did fair too well in his first managerial venture. I think there’s still a Buvac replacement required and one that is as good or better otherwise I fear there’s a hole there that can be very detrimental next season.


 

 

09 Jun 2018 21:14:56
Quite surprised at the response of some fellow fans to the Fekir deal seemingly falling through, I mean people aren’t as gutted as I thought they’d be or maybe it’s just the posts that have actually made it on that make it seem that way, I wish I was as perky as others but after losing the final I was starting to feel better with Fekir coming in, considering I’ve watched quite a bit of him (since coutinho left I thought Fekir was the best like for like replacement and watched him since) . Personally I’d think the deal is fully off, he’ll have a decent World Cup and someone else will grab him with no ‘problems’ in the medical. Maybe we just can’t stretch that far financially and we’ve prioritised a GK over him, who knows all I can say is it’s frustrating given the response from rival fans, and I just can see anyone as good or better than him in that position that would come for that price. Only guy I can think of that is better than him and is potentially available is isco and that’s not going to happen.

This is bull! Same old Financial barriers! We lid £90 mill for a defender. £60 mill on a CM and £50 mill on a DM. we are interested in Allisson knowing very well how much he would cost! If we don’t have finances then we are not catching up City!


2.) 09 Jun 2018 21:48:54
Seriously Harry, one person mentions that it might be a financial thing and you jump on that bandwagon. What more do FSG have to do to show you that they are willing to pay? With the figures being quoted, I would hope that they are really sure of their investment. Of doctors are raising questions over the knee or whatever their concern is, then maybe, just maybe FSG are justified in not pulling the trigger on the deal.

That being said. Ed02 just says that the negotiations are ongoing. So how about we just wait and see before we slag anyone off huh?


3.) 09 Jun 2018 22:37:32
Adz

And the medical team missed to diagnose a concussion 🙄🙄🙄.


4.) 09 Jun 2018 23:33:05
Harry mate I urge you not to talk about them failing to diagnose concussion if you have no idea about it. Do some more research on concussion and then come back.

It can take time to see any kind of effects with concussion. This isn't the medical teams fault, it's nobody's fault at all. If there were signs during that game, he'd of been off. They aren't part of Liverpool's medical team for nothing.

It looks like we’re going for a more affordable option as back up for Salah and mane which I’m not all that fussed about because I think that’s all that we would need, a decent back up option that is a threat. With Fekir hopefully coming in and OX coming back we would have options for the attacking midfield position and out wide. Moses Simon looks like he’s going to be that player and he looks a threat from the videos I’ve seen (which doesn’t say a lot really), I would prefer Bernard on a free though. I’ve seen more of him at a higher level. I think ideally we were potentially looking at dembele on loan with an option to buy but it probably wouldn’t be possible and they’d prefer an outright sale anyway. A wide player, Fekir (hopefullly), a goalkeeper and possibly a centre back and I think we’re set, unless someone unexpectedly was to leave.

Kman92

1.) 06 Jun 2018 17:55:30
People’s issue with Simon is purely because they’ve never heard of him or seen him play. People crave “big names”.

It’s only 12 months ago that Leon bailey was playing in the Belgian league and now he’s 70mil player apparently.

I hope we’ve found a gem in Simon and fully trust klopp and scouts.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool watched him two years ago.}


2.) 06 Jun 2018 17:59:57
If the “affordable” option is Shaqiri then it should be “avoidable” option. We should sign players for the squad and not for the first eleven alone. The front three are not unstoppable imo! If there is someone better than them then get him in.


3.) 06 Jun 2018 19:19:31
I think klopp and his team could turn shaquri into a fantastic player. Look how trim the ox looks these days compared go a year ago. He will get shaquri in shape and the guy has a wicked shot and can pass well.

I like the fact we seem to be looking for bargains. We can't spend 70 mil on every target. We have a fantastic team already, we know that. We reached the ucl final. We just need a few more faces with some quality and I reckon Simon and shaquri have quality.

I don't see us spending 100mil dot someone who isn't guaranteed to start. Ie dembele. I know we need depth but that's ridiculous. Fekir, mane, salah, Firmino and dembele can't start every game. Our front three have done too much to be ditched for a new marquee signing.

Bar caulker and manninger every klopp signing has been a success to some degree. They have all made tonnes of 1st team performances. Matip and Klavan have both played some fantastic games. I back our recruitment team to make the right moves.


4.) 06 Jun 2018 19:21:27
Spot on, Ed. Just learned that we have been watching Simon since 2015 so he may be unheard of to many BUT not to those within the club and NOT to those who have watched him play for Nigeria like I have. With you as well, Harry. Shaquiri is just awful and he should be the "avoidable" choice, for sure

As for Moses "Daddy" Simon, he is a speedster with raw pace and trickery on either side. He was a starter in the Nigerian team during the WC qualifiers with he and Victor Moses on either flank. Talk about raw pace on either side and he was the one keeping another speed demon in Ahmed Musa, out of the starting 112. Now, that takes some doing cos Musa is beloved among the Nigerian fan base.

Simon can play on the right or left, tracks back, can run for days and very hardworking. His end product may need improvement BUT he is a rough diamond and with the right coaching, can be very good and who is better to coach up a talent like Simon than Klopp? I personally, am excited about this kid and what Klopp can do with him.


5.) 06 Jun 2018 19:28:19
If this as a deputy to Mane and Salah then Simon or Shakiri make loads of sense as they won’t cost the earth.


6.) 06 Jun 2018 20:00:59
Simon? Yes. Shaquiri? HECK NO!

I reckon Fekir is Chelsea bound once the futures of Willian, Pedro and hazard are resolved.

Well if we’re getting one of Fekir or dembele then fair enough but both would definitely suggest Salah is on his way. I hope not but I wouldn’t be surprised, this feels like the same type of scenerio after the 13-14 season, just the buys are way better lol.

Not the type of midfielder we need and definitely need more quality than him if we are to push to the next level.

I agree with den, unless it’s a loan move for dembele then it could mean one of Salah or mane leaving and we know which is more likely. So the verdict is out on that but if it’s as an addition to the current squad then that would be awesome, even if it’s on loan. I just hope he isn’t a much ado about nothing type signing, he’s obviously got massive talent let’s see if he would realise it here.

Fekir will be the player I’d like us to pull off the most on that list, he’ll be relatively expensive and Lyon, as others have said, are notoriously hard to deal with but he would be a huge addition to the squad. He’s hard working, skillfull, fast and built for a counter attacking team. Only thing that could be a concern is his attitude but we said the same about mane and they were put to bed. I think in a team where he isn’t the star man he won’t have the attitude problem, I hope anyway.

Ceballos is quite underwhelming, considering this is quite a problem area for us, I’ve seen him a few times for Madrid and it’s clear he’s well out of his depth. Maybe it’s a case of not getting enough game time or the right oppertunities/ positions but I don’t think he’s the sitting midfielder we need. With can going, I thought this was a good chance to bring a midfielder with real denfensive capabilities and mindset, someone for the games where we need a clever head in there and I don’t think that’s ceballos. If we do get him I hope as with all transfers that I doubt, that I’m proven wrong.

Tarkowski I’m not sure about, I think like the others have said, he fits a certain system and I don’t think he’d fit too well in our attacking system being so used to a defensive one. Van Dijk needs a certain type of partner but there’s a whole host of names I’d put ahead of Tarkowski that would be better and cheaper. Again I hope Klopp proves me wrong

Butland only makes sense as a replacement for migs and Ward but nothing more. He could get back on track and really push to be the goalkeeper he once promised to be but with our Goalkeeping set up I really can’t see that happening. I think goalkeeper might end up being an issue for us at some point next season as it has for some years now. Karius has really pushed on but maybe I’m being overly critical in saying I’m not too convinced by him yet.

I think with some of these additions and Keita coming in we could challenge for the league next season. The area I’d really go above and beyond over out of the names mentioned by macca is a solid Cb partner for Van Dijk, I think with that, we would be able to counteract the need for a genuine sitting/ defensive midfielder. And go a long way to solving our defensive issues finally. Very excited for this summer.

Maybe you misinterpret what I said which I’m not surprised at. Qualifying for the CL regularly is a domestic achievement not a European one, which is exactly the point I was making. It must be because they qualify regularly and not because we’ve been worse than them in Europe which is what lamborini was implying. Maybe that makes it easier for you to understand, and that I do understand the rankings as much as you like to dish out childish insults as per.

It’s very odd that people doubted his talent. It was always his attitude that was the problem and that’s still to be tested. We’ll see how he handles being on the bench at times this season.

Nah it must be based on domestic performance, because there’s no way spurs have been better than us in Europe in the last 5 years. We’ve got to a CL and Europa final, furtherst they’ve been is last 16 in both competitions.

{Ed001's Note - clearly you don't understand the rankings. It is based over 5 years where Spurs have regularly qualified and we haven't.}

Do we want to win the major honours in football or not? This is a cut throat business unfortunately and if your given the chance and deemed not good enough you should be replaced at the very highest level. As angry bardzo says, we’re hiding behind a motto or a traditional way of thinking in regards to the treatment of players, in the modern game this isn’t a reality, at any of the top clubs in the game. Migs got every opportunity to make it work at Liverpool and never did, and was always a mistake prone player even when he showed flashes of brilliance. It’s the exact same situation for Karius but even worse I’d say, why let history repeat itself because ‘we want to do it the right way’ or because of YNWA. None of the other clubs would do that and none of their fans can tell me otherwise, so why should we. It’s time to be ruthless if we want to achieve the highest honours, the abuse and all the extra stuff is what’s getting the bad press, but the criticism of Karius performances are warranted and he’s the only one that can change that. If it’s the criticism that made his position untenable then he’s mentally weak and isn’t what we need to win things, he made the mistakes no one else. And it’s not just a couple of games or a couple of mistakes he’s made a series of errors over his Liverpool career. The champions league final was the straw that broke the camels back especially after suffering the same sort of stuff for years with migs.
