Linked with Barnet keeper McKenznie-lyle.


1.) 01 Aug 2018 09:53:51
Isn't he the lad we currently have on trial with 1 of the youth teams?

2.) 01 Aug 2018 09:54:34
6”7! 20 yrs old. Apparently he’s already been on trial.

3.) 01 Aug 2018 09:56:42
Yep, been on a 1 week trial with our U-23s recently.

4.) 01 Aug 2018 10:08:31
I'm assuming that means they are looking at one of the young lads being promoted to no.3.

i hope it isn't the case as the young lads need games!

5.) 01 Aug 2018 10:10:03
Sounds like a tall tale to me.

6.) 01 Aug 2018 13:17:14
Yep he was in Hungary with the U-23s and played in the 1-1 draw with ETO Gyor.

7.) 01 Aug 2018 14:22:08
Never seen him play for Barnet, think he's only made one or two appearances and I don't get down there as much anymore, but whenever I've seen him warming up I've always thought that he was very slow getting down to low balls. Like he looked like he was moving in slow motion. That being said, I'd love a Barnet lad to make it to Liverpool (especially after the shame of a Barnet lad landing at Everton) so hope he impresses!

8.) 01 Aug 2018 15:45:23
He was at spurs up to u14 level and then to Barnet. I fear we are not getting an experienced keeper in as number 3 especially as grabara has a squad number 73 according to the Liverpool u23 webpage.

We have four young well thought of keepers at the club Ben Williams and Daniel Atherton will be 19 this year Kelleher and Grabara are only a matter of months older than them.

Considering their ages should we not be organising loans out for them rather than signing more keepers of a similar age, unless the answer to our defensive issues is playing two keepers at a time.



26 Jul 2018 13:06:32
BBC reporting 2 year deal with Vida agreed?


1.) 26 Jul 2018 13:09:15
You mean from the gossip page? Which references a Turkish paper?

2.) 26 Jul 2018 13:43:13
We wouldn't pay nearly £30 million for a player on a 2 year deal.

3.) 26 Jul 2018 13:44:02
I hope we don't sign him, rather play gomez.

4.) 26 Jul 2018 16:36:47
Wow is that gossip page still there? god knows how, it's about as useless as twatter!

True ninja, me too mate.

5.) 26 Jul 2018 17:47:50
Never mind Gomez, id rather play razor ruddock in his current shape than the croatian shaun micheals.

6.) 26 Jul 2018 18:30:34
Many people I’d rather play than ruddock!

{Ed025's Note - he was crap at his peak firmane mate..

7.) 26 Jul 2018 18:33:58
Salah, come on man it's a gossip page and has given me years of ammo to wind up my non LFC supporting work mates, over the mules they have been linked with (and us :D )

8.) 27 Jul 2018 08:42:03
Thank you all so much, that's the most thumbs down I've ever got on here, I feel privileged you cared enough to both read and click the button 😉.

Haha that is amazing McGoveb, nobody deserves that unless they quote the s*n, there you go mate, one little thumbs up from aoe. It’s worth thrice the average clicks don’t you know.

10.) 27 Jul 2018 17:56:56
Aoe, bizarre ok but hey it’s nice to be noticed lol.



15 Feb 2018 16:36:17

Have we any interest in Salif Sane from Hannover. Been watching a bit more Bundesliga this year and he seems excellent. Currently has the third highest rating in the Bundesliga.

He’s a big strong Senegalese CB, wins lots of aerial battles and has 6 MOTM this season. Older than some we have been linked to but looks excellent.


{Ed001's Note - not heard of any interest from us in him.}



30 Jan 2018 08:59:37
So after two very poor performances will Klopp swing the axe and shake things up?
Karius has to come back, Gomez must replace TAA and either Klavan or Lovren for the inept Matip.
I read last night ome great posts on playing Hendo and Ox as the two, Mane and Salah on the wings which I think is a great shout. Can and Wini have had enough chances and if nothing else dropping them in a World Cup year might put a well deserved rocket up their backsides.
Another great shout on one of the pages was Ings up top who is a terrier and deserves a chance and a Firminho playing in a free role.
It’s Huddersfield next so we’re not expecting all out attack against us. Klopp needs to start shaking things up and showing players that abject performances will not be tolerated. A few games in the bench for Can and Wini might just change their attitudes, hopefully for the better.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 10:16:41
Dropping gini won't perk him up for the world cup as he's watching from his couch anyway. TAA I think would be worth playing tonight as he's better going forward than gomez. Is tonight a chance to play gomez CB with VVD? Klopps stated tactics were to blame against Swansea so expect a formation change, I doubt a 442 or 4411 but possibly 3 at the back or 4132. On the transfer front, no more in this window, shame we didn't challenge for PEA. I'm the summer, a gk, cdm and a striker to replace studge and probably ings departures.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 10:16:58
The problem is this. Bringing Henderson back in is probably sensible, now that he is over his latest injury, but then who if you drop both Can and Wijnaldum, it means almost certainly that James Milner will play in centre midfield and he is a liability at the best of times in that position.

3.) 30 Jan 2018 10:19:13
I'd go Klavan, solid, unspectacular and until he was dropped, had cut out making silly mistakes. Never thought I would say that but there you go.

4.) 30 Jan 2018 10:33:57
Mr Dennis. reread the original post. he clearly states both hendo and the Ox in midfield to replace Gini and can and a switch to 442 risk formation. Milner wouldn't need to start

5.) 30 Jan 2018 11:08:47
Klopp isn't going to go 442, he isn't Roy Hodgson.

{Ed001's Note - he has gone 4-4-2 quite a few times.}

6.) 30 Jan 2018 11:13:27
Shake things up?!

With what?!

Have you seen our bench?

7.) 30 Jan 2018 11:52:26
Mr Dennis, as ED001 has alluded to Klopp has already tried this formation a few times this season, and with Keita arriving in the summer you should expect it to happen more often! 442 isn't a bad way of setting up a modern team, ask athletico Madrid and Leicester city. rather than assuming only a dinasuar like Roy Hodson would use it 😉.

8.) 30 Jan 2018 13:01:39
Formations don't win matches . Players do.
Good players
Clever players
Hungry players
Find a way to win
Do we have them?
Not sure.

9.) 30 Jan 2018 13:03:46
The difference is this, the title winning Leicester side had and current Atletico side have the players to be able sit back and soak up pressure when needed as both played on the counter and soaked up pressure, we lack any players that have that ability. Not one of our midfielders are at the level of Kante (who was so good that the team felt like it was having two players instead of one and he even made Drinkwater look like a footballer) or Niguez and Koke. Not one of our midfielders are as good as those players or ever will be, name me one midfielder that we have that even comes close? It is like entering an Austin Maestro into a grand prix and hoping to win.

{Ed001's Note - would it be the MG version of the Maestro though?}

10.) 30 Jan 2018 14:56:22
Shake things up in Kevin Murphy's box of rice (musical instrument) obviously mate :)

11.) 30 Jan 2018 15:25:37
For me the 4-3-3 is the best formation for us.

The issue for me is the lack of creativity and protection offered from our midfield 3. Hendo on his day can offer both of these things but since his string of injuries has failed to show his true ability.

Coutinho obviously offered the creativity to feed clever balls to the front 3 in tight spaces. This has been our main issue in the last 2 games against teams who are happy to sit and defend. We have had a huge percentage of the possession but it has all been slow and sideways.

In terms of protection I can't remember the last time that we had a quality DM who would sit there and help out the defence. Can and Wijnaldum have both had a go without much success. I don't know the number of goals that have resulted from Can giving the ball away in bad positions but from memory there have been several.

Keita will be a huge bonus when he joins but for me we will still need a 3rd quality central midfielder to play alongside Hendo (if he can prove himself fit and refind his form) and Keita.

If we can get in a top quality CM and a top quality GK for next season I would be a happy man.

12.) 30 Jan 2018 15:33:17
Hahaha Ed001 my mate had an mg maestro turbo not so long ago, was a bit of a state though.

{Ed001's Note - had it won any grands prix?}

13.) 30 Jan 2018 16:52:42
I think you’re spelling prix wrong Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - ah could be mate.}

14.) 30 Jan 2018 18:26:04
I think against the teams who sit deep and we struggle to break down I would like to see him swap Salah and Mane on the wings (I know they're preferred is to cut in) but having them on the wing and they're favoured foot on the outside will stop having them need to cut in where its always jam packed, I think this would solve a load of problems breaking these teams down - what's everyones thoughts.

15.) 30 Jan 2018 20:43:48
Cialb - I like how you are trying to think outside the box. Personally I think that would leave Firmino isolated in the middle and would also clog up the space our fullbacks would be running into. I suppose the fullbacks could move centrally in attack much like Lahm did at Bayern but Im not sure we have the players for that. TAA maybe but our left side I doubt.

16.) 31 Jan 2018 07:46:44
No Ed001 it didn’t win any Grand Prix, although it may have stood a chance after After god had spent years corroding the body away in an attempt to make it lighter and more competitive on the track.

{Ed001's Note - they were obviously designed for racing lightness being so easily corroded. I think the design team must have used rust to get round homologation issues and road legality.}



12 Nov 2017 10:49:19
Papers now claiming Can heading to City in the summer.


1.) 12 Nov 2017 11:51:56
'papers' says it all mate.

2.) 12 Nov 2017 12:02:27
And Sky Sports as well.

3.) 12 Nov 2017 13:39:11
Please Pep.
take him now.


4.) 12 Nov 2017 16:39:24
Then he should be dropped to the reserves for the rest of the season as his heart isn’t in it.

5.) 12 Nov 2017 17:27:19
Good shout Mr Dennis, can’t wait for Naby to join next season after a year in Liepzig’s reserves.

6.) 12 Nov 2017 20:05:21
I thought players can't agree anything pre contract wise from the same league or country.

7.) 12 Nov 2017 21:07:33
let him go nobody bigger than the club.

8.) 12 Nov 2017 21:40:22
As far as I’m concerned Can has made a decision that he doesn’t see his future at Liverpool. He sees it at Man City, which is fine. But since he has been a liability at times this season, his place would be better taken by Grujic who will be here next season. Can should be a bench warmer at best.

9.) 12 Nov 2017 22:11:29
I can't see him going to city, if he's worried about a long term starting spot then they would be a disaster for him. I can't see anything other than a free transfer to Juve in the summer.

10.) 13 Nov 2017 00:54:04
Amazing how people just believe whatever the papers say and launch into a player without any confirmation, even though these reports constantly get shown as rubbish.

11.) 13 Nov 2017 12:17:08
Hahaha he won't start at Man City. Gundogan doesn't start and only makes the old cameo how the hell will Can see the field behind him, Fernandinho, Yaya even!

{Ed002's Note - Gundogan ruptured his Cruciate Ligament keeping him pout for 9 months.}

12.) 13 Nov 2017 13:40:02
Damn fair enough Ed! I'd just rather see Can move abroad.

{Ed002's Note - Once he has left Liverpool it should be unimportant to you.}

13.) 13 Nov 2017 14:06:00
Tell that to Chelsea fans re Nemanja Matić.

14.) 13 Nov 2017 14:06:46
Of course.

15.) 13 Nov 2017 22:57:08
If Can's "heart isn't in it" he certainly has a funny way of showing that when he puts the shirt on. maybe he should take a lesson from Coutinho about how to perform when your heart isn't in it.

16.) 14 Nov 2017 12:35:16
Faithinworks that is why I don’t get the abuse. He is still putting in a shift, might not always be a good one but by all accounts the situation is one of he wants to be playing and the recruitment policy suggests to him that he won’t be a regular next season. Nowhere near the situation of Coutinho s amazing success in ruining his standing with the fans.

While I do think our transfer business is completed for this window (incomings) I will miss the banter and mayhem that goes with the last minute buys, it's such good fun.

A great window for the club as a whole (maybe a few more outgoings would have been nice) but we are much stronger than last season, so let's get it On.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 08:15:47
really can't wait for the season to start man, i agree.



25 Jul 2018 20:00:30
Ed01, apologies if I missed it but did you do an end of season review on the players and manager like you used to do after each game?
If yes has anyone got a link?


{Ed001's Note - I don't think I did mate.}

1.) 26 Jul 2018 07:28:45
Any chance of one or has that ship sailed,

{Ed001's Note - probably a bit late now, my memory is not good enough to remember it clearly to be honest. The World Cup got in the way of a lot of things and now I am so busy with other articles that I can barely remember last season.}

2.) 26 Jul 2018 08:49:34
Personally, I’m still waiting for the second half from the year before. We never found out what you thought of mane?

{Ed001's Note - really?}

3.) 26 Jul 2018 09:17:09
If memory serves, it was a two part piece and the second was going to be recorded later in the week but then Macca first posted about vvd and all hell broke loose. You hadn’t given your player of the season but you said it wasn’t mane you tease. Now don’t quote me on this, but I’m not sure if there was a Benny ballers joke of the week either, that said, he is a professional, unlike yourself ed. So I might retract that last part.

{Ed001's Note - oh a podcast. Wow you do have a good memory.}

4.) 26 Jul 2018 09:28:05
In fairness either would be great for this year. So I may put this to bed, who would you have chosen as player of the year 2 years back? I’m thinking Milner 😉 I mean he worked so hard for the team.

{Ed001's Note - honestly, I have completely forgotten!}

5.) 26 Jul 2018 09:40:40
Sweet Jesus, so I’m stuck with never knowing?



25 Jul 2018 10:22:38
Ok so we are really close to start of new and very exciting season, so here's the question.
Have we brought in enough power (Forget Fekir he's not signed) to get through the bus parkers and get results as they were a bit of an Achilles heel last season.
Also have we now got the team to dismantle Maureens bus, Thoughts?


{Ed025's Note - thats a yes from me mac..

1.) 25 Jul 2018 10:42:01
A no from me. Don't get me wrong we're heading in the right direction but not there yet.
A few of them draws from last season should be turned into wins this season.
I am guessing by seasons end we will be 12 - 15 points behind man city and around 4 - 9 behind Arsenal.

2.) 25 Jul 2018 10:52:15
Haha, Arsenal. That's a surprisingly optimistic prediction for you Walter mate.

3.) 25 Jul 2018 11:01:14
A yes from me I think too. Keita fabinho and Shaqiri can all strike sweetly from distance over the top of defenders, something we missed after Coutinho left.

4.) 25 Jul 2018 11:31:00
Behind Arsenal Walter? Now I know you're having a laugh, they'll be nowhere near the top 4.

5.) 25 Jul 2018 11:39:56
I'm going for 10/ 15 more points this season, more firepower from midfield, more defence from midfield, a top keeper and vvd full season.

6.) 25 Jul 2018 12:10:56
The season before last we had 11 draws for the season. This past season we had 12. This must change. I agree that midfield has improved since last season but what I really want is some mental toughness in this new spine. The kind that says "okay, we 're ahead and now we're going to see the game through until the final whistle". If this is not addressed, I don't see why much will change. So I'm hoping that Keita and Fabinho will add some mental "steel" that allows us to hold on to leads and turn deficits and draws into wins.

7.) 25 Jul 2018 12:15:47
Yes from me, without a shadow of a doubt, teams can park the bus all they want, no team will stop that midfield and attack of ours. People forget, the majority of defences in the league are terrible, especially when up against an attack like ours or Citys.

8.) 25 Jul 2018 12:22:59
A yes from me.

I think we will have at least 1 more point than the team in 2nd 😉.

9.) 25 Jul 2018 13:01:37
Aray has already mentioned the number of draws last season, many of them against relegation threatened teams like WBA, Everton and Stoke.

We don't have anyone to unpick a 10 man defence and if we draw a third of our league games again we will be fighting over fourth, fifth and sixth again. This is basic maths.

Fortunately, Professor Klopp is good at maths.

10.) 25 Jul 2018 13:04:19
Jonnyr1970 I am of the opinion as it stands now it will be city Arsenal liverpool utd. This opinion might change by the time the transfer window closes.
Basically we will need to see where teams strengthen or weaken to get a clearer picture.
For me I think it would be brilliant if a small team win it if we can't similar to when Leicester won.

11.) 25 Jul 2018 10:38:54
Morning Ed025 I hope your right about the club having enough to sort out the bus parker's but I'm not going to go overboard just yet. Its been a long wait since the last time mate. I do believe that at the very least we should get a cup in the cabinet any cup to give us a bit of momentum and to give us that winning feeling.

{Ed025's Note - hi barry, yeah i think you are geared up to win something mate, but sometimes the obvious fails to happen mate..

12.) 25 Jul 2018 13:42:37
NRW, You are entitled to your opinion, but as always it does not align with the rest of the nation.
I believe we will get 12-15 points more this season, just shy of winning the league, which City will do, for a second season in a row.
United will finish 3rd after a good start, they will falter in the second half of the season, with Chelsea 4th after showing glimpses of brilliance under the guidance of Sarri.
Spuds and Arsenal will not be top 4!
Would love to know what the Eds (001,002,025,033) predict for the coming season, though I know you might not want to?

{Ed002's Note - I think it is rather too early to say. Whilst Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal have done most, but not all, of their shopping, the other sides haven't yet.}

13.) 25 Jul 2018 13:46:01
We'll improve our points tally, i'm sure of it. To win the league, we need Man City to drop considerably more points than last season, as nobody is getting 100 points again any time soon.

14.) 25 Jul 2018 14:55:04
Only way anyone will know is when the seasons over. Be great to look back at all our predictions. I wonder who will be the closest?



20 Jul 2018 07:37:06
Only 45 mins but I thought Fabinho showed signs of how great he will be for us, so calm on the ball always seemed to find time and space, much tougher opposition ahead but for a pre season run around I loved what I saw.
Also I know most hate them but looking at Allison's distribution stats last season that boy is going to be awesome in getting us from defense to our blitzkrieg attack, I think he even has a assist last season, His super fast and accurate distribution will pit the fear of god in the opposition knowing No, Bobby and Mane are ready to pounce, sooooo looking forward to this season.


1.) 20 Jul 2018 08:22:26
Littered with auto corrects, Mo being the worst, cost of a decent education ruined by technology, love it 😂.

2.) 20 Jul 2018 08:24:05
Think fabinho will take a bit more bedding in. There were two passes yesterday he was far too casual on and hit a Blackburn man I believe he was oblivious to.

Maybe overly harsh on my part but I still expect for fabinho to be eased in the most out of the signings. I see hendo playing the first few weeks/ months giving fabinho CL group games cup games and some sub appearances.

Alisson I completely agree I think he will have the biggest impact on the team with the marked improvement in distribution and also the confidence hell instill in the CB's allowing them hopefully to focus more on their games.

My only concern is the language barrier. I am not sure of languages spoke by Alisson but I do prefer when a keeper is comfortable and competent communicating with the defence.

3.) 20 Jul 2018 08:36:26
I can see him getting assists for us as well, his distribution is incredible, he is more than capable of a long throw or kick to Salah and co that will result in a goal.
Nobody will fancy having a go at us next season, who has the balls to go against the worlds most expensive keeper knowing if you mess up he’s going to lob it straight out to the worlds best attacking trio.

4.) 20 Jul 2018 09:11:14
Shane Klopp said on interview last night that Alisson’s English is good, so hopefully no communication issues.

5.) 20 Jul 2018 09:19:44
Apparently Alisson has a decent command of English so communication should be ok.

6.) 20 Jul 2018 09:33:11
I believe klopp said Alisson has good English.



19 Jul 2018 12:20:49
10 million for Ward is very good business for us considering he barely played a senior match for the club. Best of luck in the future lad.

It's always funny to read "a very expensive sub" again who's to say after working with Klopp and his team that he didn't make one of the front three places his? How does everyone know he won't? Look at the confidence Solskjaer has imparted on Rashford, who's to say Klopp wouldn't do that with Zaha, at times the guy is just poetry in motion.

Fergie bought great players to compete with his first 11 every year and he did pretty well, we shouldn't be just thinking of back up players, get players to push the first 11, it can only improve us as a team, just my opinion though.

Reaching a little MK if you think Brighton didn’t have a shot because of our CB, s, they were poor and barely attacked.
Not saying we need a CB but would you be happy with those you mention against top PL teams. Also take in if VVD gets injured, who will be the leader then?
I don’t know why everyone has such a huge issue when people say we should buy another top CB, wouldn’t it be nice to also give VVD a break?
