Be interesting to see the starting line up 2moro. Unfortunately we are getting injuries at the wrong time, still believe we can cope tho.

Wrap Salah up in cotton wool, bring in maybe Clyne and Ings/ Solanke and fingers crossed we can get the job done then look to city on Tue.


1.) 06 Apr 2018 10:51:37
I'd rest Salah tomorrow. Bring in Ings for a full 90 mins or at least 60, every time he comes on for the last 10 mins or so he comes close to scoring every time, he needs more minutes and this is his chance imo. Solanke doesn't cut it for me, he never has and I doubt he ever will. He's still young so has time but can you really see him making it? I can't.

I think we'll win tomorrow but the hype makes it difficult, always. I 'm always saying how we can beat any team on our day and how I wasn't nervous about playing City the other day etc but games like this do make me nervous. We're by far the better team but it's just one of them games and we need to win it. We have injuries at the wrong time but that's just excuses. We have to just get on with it and keep our form going!

We'll be celebrating a win tomorrow though so it's no problem.

2.) 06 Apr 2018 11:09:42
I think solanke will start against Everton. You're writing him off too soon. He has a lot of ability and I think he can be perfect back up to bobby he just needs a goal and some confidence IMO.

3.) 06 Apr 2018 11:10:19
Apparently Salah and Can are definitely out of tomorrow's game. The biggest one for me tomorrow is that Klopp doesn't rest Karius and bring Mignolet back in as that could be a recipe for distaster. I think Clyne and Moreno will start with Hendo, Lallana (if fit) and wjnaldum in midfield. Up top then Ings, Solanke and Mane. Clyne and Lallana desperately need match fitness so why not throw them straight in. Starting a game is a lot easier than trying to get up to speed as a substitute and if they blow out then you can bring them off. We never know what might happen from now until tue and the luck we're having we might actually need them.

4.) 06 Apr 2018 11:13:35
Karius doesn't need a rest. He was having a picnic in the goalmouth last game.

5.) 06 Apr 2018 11:17:01
Redwillis, maybe I am writing him off too soon mate but I don't think I am. You said it yourself, he needs a goal, when is that going to be? how long do we have to wait? He's not good enough for Liverpool. A back up to Firmino, Solanke is not that. If god forbid Firmino got injured, you'd be happy with Solanke filling his spot until fit again? I sure wouldn't, he's nowhere near ready for that. I do hope in the future he will be I just can't see it.

6.) 06 Apr 2018 11:50:32
I hope tomorrow not to see mane salah or firminho anywhere near the starting 11
Woodburn Solanke and Ings will do me for the derby with the three amigos rested
Solanke is too young to be written off but I agree I would not be happy to see him replace firminho for any long period of time not yet anyway.

7.) 06 Apr 2018 11:53:15
Salah the lads 19. he's looked decent enough and has came close and been unlucky numerous times to scoring. Give him time and support i think there is a good player there.

8.) 06 Apr 2018 12:37:32
Decent enough? when? Coming close doesn't cut it, 19 or not, he has no potential for our starting 11. It's nothing to do with luck, he has shown no signs of improvement since joining. Please believe when I say I am in no way blasting the lad, I just see nothing from him now or in the future, I hope more then anybody I'm completely wrong.

{Ed001's Note - he is 19 and has had little in the way of opportunity to show any improvement. How on earth you can judge a kid on a few fleeting appearances is beyond me. This is why youngsters fail so often at Liverpool, these kind of stupid knee jerk reactions to their development plague them.}

9.) 06 Apr 2018 13:18:15
RE:solanke, we need to be patient for potentially the next 3 - 5 years. lots of liverpool fans aren't patient for 90 minutes hahaha.

10.) 06 Apr 2018 13:16:11
Fair enough Ed1, you know 100 x more them me mate and I can't argue against you but 1 goal in 24 appearances is nowhere near good enough for Liverpool, yes he is young and I say again, I hope I'm wrong with my judgement but can you really see him making it? It's too early to tell of course and maybe I am been harsh on the lad but I would put my mortgage on it that come a few years from now he's still not at the level we require.

I'm all for giving youngsters their time, they need time to develop, I'm not daft but for some it just doesn't work out and it has shown with Solanke. Sure with more game time he could end up to be the next huge thing, who really knows, we dont, we never will because how can he be put ahead of the players we have? he can't. He can't score, I'd prefer Origi and he's only 2 years older.

Origi scored what was it, 12 goals in 50 or so appearances? not great but certainly better then Solanke and it's looking likely like he's off. I know this has no relevance to Solanke at all but it's just my point, point is, Solanke in his time he's had which granted isn't alot, he should be doing more. As a striker that's his job and he's failing, 20 years old or not, he's not doing enough and I can't see him ever doing enough, isn't it at this stage where he should be impressing? where he should be saying 'this is why I should be picked for the starting 11, look what I'm capable of' he's not doing that and at that age it shows lack of ambition and motivation.

{Ed001's Note - you can't judge a kid like that. Every kid is different. Some come in and blitz things, others struggle early and learn from it and become great players. Others still never amount to anything. The lad has talent and the time to judge him is in a few year's.}

11.) 06 Apr 2018 14:50:27
I would go for 4-1-2-1-2 with solanke and ings up top, Lallana on the left, Ox on the right Wijnaldum in CAM and Henderson in the deep role. I would also play Moreno and clyne and keep Van Dijk and Lovren as they need to continue their partnership which is clearly the best pairing we have, obviously keep Karius in goal as there is no need to play.

12.) 06 Apr 2018 16:53:02
Is Lallana even fit? Couple of people consider him to start tommorow. And of my knowladge he is off and may be off the season? Did I miss something?

{Ed001's Note - I am 99% sure he is done for the season.}

13.) 06 Apr 2018 17:23:12
Solanke will come good, I'm sure. Maybe not quite good enough for a regular starting spot but good enough for backup, certainly. He's mainly been playing when teams are trying to fight back against us and we're mainly on the back foot. He harries and chases around all over the place. He's got a good touch, scores goals at the levels he's played at and is confident in his ability. If, say, Firmino was on the bench or injured for a game and he played alongside Salah and Mane, I'm pretty sure he'd get more chances than he has had to score. He's only started games with a second fiddle attack so he needs more chances, more time and backing!

14.) 06 Apr 2018 17:31:04
Correct. Let’s stop buying kids! Are we short of kids in our academy that we are landing it from Brazil, Serbia and Chelsea? What’s happening with Allan? Can’t blame the fans when it doesn’t work! We are certainly in a position to bring in finished goods rather than “ Young potential “

How on earth would Solanke fit under Klopp system, Can someone explain to me that? We don’t play anyone similar to his style ( if we were Ings wouldn’t be struggling for minutes ) and over the top we bought another Central striker when we don’t play with one in the first place!

15.) 06 Apr 2018 18:28:04
Salah, it's not about someone knowing better than you or me. The fact is that you simply cannot judge a player fully regardless of age, based on him making cameo appearances. Football does not work that way. Look at Karius, for example. He had about 18/ 20 games here and there or so before being made the permanent starter and even that amount of games was not enuff to judge him. Now, we are seeing the results of giving him a full go with him knowing it's up to him to pass or fail on HIS own merits. Solanke needs to be playing longer in games consistently to be fully judged and as someone once said, if you do not give a young player a full go of games, you don't deserve the player you want him to be. It's that simple.

16.) 06 Apr 2018 18:38:55
Agree with Baby Driver on Solanke. He made the wrong move to LFC, he is no better off here than at Chelsea.
He’ll never be quick enough to get a regualr place in our team and he won’t reach his potential without regular football.

17.) 06 Apr 2018 19:47:01
Think both Solanke and Ings have been a little unlucky with their finishing. I believe Solanke needs one to go in off his backside and it will be a weight off his shoulders. He’s a young lad with plenty of ability so let’s see. Harry Kane was written off at that age remember.

As for the keeping situation, stick with Karius the last thing we need it another Migs horror show and the more games Karius plays the better he seems to get.

Looking forward to the game!

{Ed025's Note - solanke and ings have been anything but unlucky redroon, they are championship players at a top premiership club...that makes them very lucky mate..

18.) 07 Apr 2018 00:21:50
Wellredknuckledragger - I agree with the majority of your post but could you please confirm what you mean when you say 'He's got a good touch, scores goals at the levels he's played at and is confident in his ability'? Am I missing something? seriously this is no dig but 1 goal in 24 appearances? and he's scoring goals? come on man.

Harry said this a while ago about Solanke and I was trying not to agree but I can't help it, it's the truth in my opinion. I understand what people are saying by saying he needs more time and all and I completely agree but more time will only be a waste of his time and a waste of Liverpool's time because he will not come good. He's not fighting hard enough for a place in Liverpools starting lineup which is why we aren't seeing the lad start, at that age he should be doing everything in his power to impress, he's not doing that.

I'd like to see him go out on loan where he can get proper game time and see what he's capable of, because right now he's far off been ready for Liverpool, whichever way you want to look at it.

19.) 07 Apr 2018 13:22:47
Ok, not scored at senior level but got the winner for England U21's the other day and was top scorer in the tourney in the summer. Has scored a few at U23's. I know its different but its not like he's without talent. He just hasn't had the rub of the green in the games he's been involved in and who he's been playing with. None of our top 3 are same without the others around them is my point. Every time he gets on the pitch he works his socks off and it not like he's had many (if any) clear cut chances. I just think if we sign any competition for the others they're going to be pretty disappointed pretty soon. At least at his age he shouldn't expect to start lots of games. I do agree that a loan may be good but then we're left with the same predicament of who to back up with. I suppose Brewster maybe?



29 Jan 2018 18:20:48

What do you think of Krychowiak as an option in the summer? Excellent player who although the hasn't pulled up many trees At West Brom, I reckon he would be a good addition and perform with the better quality around him.

Not just a reaction to his performance on sat, I was surprised we weren't in for him last year.


{Ed001's Note - I like him but he is not good enough to move us on a level. It would be a pointless signing as he is at his peak now and not going to improve.}

1.) 29 Jan 2018 18:39:17
I like him as well BUT he may be a bit too slow to match the high energy we play. He is good in a team that slowly build up play like WBA do BUT won't be a good fit for us, I'm afraid.



28 Jan 2018 15:30:43
Disappointing last nite . Thought when the team was named and we took the lead that we would get the result. Agree with most of the posts in relation to our midfield and defence. Matip and Moreno in particular had shockers. Moreno out of position for all 3 goals. I just don't think the lad has a footballing brain at all. I know he has missed a lot of football but Not cover in close to your centre back on 3 occasions is unforgivable. As for Mignolet the less said the better. How Ward wasn't given an opportunity was a disgrace. Mignolet has had chance after chance.

However I'm not getting to disheartened. I hope this is a minor Blip and we can get back on song on Tue. Will be happy to see Hendo back but worry about the fitness or Lallana.

So important we turn it around as clubs who hit bad form in Feb generally end up out of CL.

Fingers crossed.


1.) 28 Jan 2018 16:23:12
Really taught Henderson made a difference when he was introduced last night. Think Emre was woeful along with Matip who i just don't rate and personally i think Robertson should have started. but i still believe we will get top 4 with or without new faces arriving 😁.

2.) 28 Jan 2018 20:51:18
transfer window closes on Wed evening, too late now to bring in a star player,
so best option is to pay the extra, and get Keita here in this window,
our midfield looks out of kilter, our full backs last night were just awful,
Matip is going backwards,
Migs might have played his last game,
were playing again on Tue night V a team we should beat,
if we don't get the win and 3 points, we can goodbye to the top four,
not looking good is it?



06 Jan 2018 00:23:55
Robertson was excellent 2nite. He has got abuse and criticism on here over the past few weeks but imo 2day proved he is a much better option than Moreno. Bolasie has ripped Moreno and Liverpool apart several times over the last lot of years but despite getting some joy Robbo was excellent . I know Bolasie isn't excatly a world beater but he is a maverick footballer who will cause Any team problems. I just think people need to have more of an open mind.

Centre mid let us down 2nite tho. Can was awful, and imo should not be picked again unless we need the numbers. When Coutinho goes Ox and Lallana shooils share that role of pressing from the middle . Ox is so explosive and with Kieta and hopefully another midfielder next season we will be nearly there!

New Keeper, Gomez, Matip, VDD. Robbo, Ox, Keita, xxxxx, Salah, firmino, Mane 👌🏻.


1.) 06 Jan 2018 00:45:00
Matip noooooo.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 12:18:46
Agree with firmane. Not Matip 😂
Klavan is our most solid out of the cbs we have (or another new cb? Imagine it xD)
We need Gomez and TAA to age a couple years asap (😅 ) then have robbo, vvd, gomez, TAA lol.



19 Dec 2017 20:59:08
Some good points on here the last week or so. I'd constantly called for Sturridge to go in the summer but got slated time and time again. I loved studge when he was at his best but I don't see other top clubs indulging in has Beens or maybes they get rid and are ruthless.

The fact that the Opinion in Moreno has completely changes can surely not be down to his performances! Yes he has done better but he has also been a liability in manyu games and he constantly distorts the shape of the team. Robertson is by far a better option. Better defensively, more composed, better delivery and not as hot headed.

The big issues remain in goal and at the back with Matip injury prone and Klavan and Lovren although decent back up centre half's playing far too much! We need 2 new centre backs badly maybe one we great experience who can help Gomez into the role eventually and someone reaching their prime. Easier said than done.

In goal Karius, bar dawdling on the ball v Arsenal has been improved and Mignolet the same old inconsistent Mignolet.

On a bright note the emergence of Gomez and TAA has been a huge bonus and will likely save us a fortune. Both have been very impressive and have many years in a red shirt ahead.

Centre mid has also become a concern, hendo who I rate Highly just hasn't been at his level, Wini needs to take less touches, move the ball qucikly and drove forward more. Milner and Can are good squad players. Really we need 2 new centre miss, Keita is one, who the other?

As for Coutinho, he has been a great signing and I enjoy seeing the club buy good players, get good service and sell them for millions more . Beats the old days of paying big money for players who eventually gave poor service and were sold for a reduced price.

Lessons haven't been learned since Klopp arrived in holding onto leads. We continue to drop points and lose or draw games after going ahead. Some has been unlucky but there is a consistent theme that needs to be rectified. Get that right and we will be well in the mix .



1.) 19 Dec 2017 21:54:48
Personally I’d say moreno is ahead of Robertson. He offers more going forward plus Robbo hasn’t be tested defensively yet. However by the end of the season I believe Robbo will be our number 1 left back. Definitely agree we need a CB maybe just one and give Gomez a shot then sign a RB pereira? I’ve been impressed with Ox so he could be the other cm provided we push Woodburn, Wilson or ojo on next season. I think we’ll have a much more solid squad going into next season I just hope we can kick on a challenge for trophies.

2.) 19 Dec 2017 23:57:03
I find it odd. This Moreno is better going forward. He and Robertson have similar assist stats if I am right? With moreno playing more games. And in a team that more often than not dominated games, and with far superior players than no disrespect but Robertson had at Hull city. Moreno has improved this season and huge respect to him. But I for 1 don't see much difference in the pair off them, Robertson edges it in defensive side in my opinion.

3.) 20 Dec 2017 01:39:31
Regardless who is better, isn't it important we have depth at this position that has been a problem for years? Moreno goes down and we are fortunate to have an actual left back in his place. With all the comparisons between the two, we will see how Andy makes out this Friday against a top 6 team before we start comparing him to Moreno.

4.) 20 Dec 2017 09:50:39
Just picking up on that comment about 'has-beens. Firstly it's an increadibly disrespectful way to talk about a professional who is still doing his best for a cause you want to succeed. And secondly whilst Arsenal still play Walcott and Welbeck, United still keep Carrick who is 35 years old with a heart problem in contention, Chelsea still give minutes to the increasingly unreliable Cahill, Spurs buying Fernando Llorente in the summer, I think your assessment of what other clubs do with players as soon as they pass their peak ability levels is pretty wildly inaccurate. I'm not saying that we should keep every single player indefinitely, but it wouldn't kill us to discuss our desire for them to move on with a little more respect would it?

5.) 20 Dec 2017 12:49:41
Studge had the third best goal involvement stats this season ahead of both Firmino and Mane. That doesn't mean he's amazing but it does mean he's not a has-been. Couple this with the fact that almost every start he's been given is against deep lying defences which give him no room its little surprise that he's not setting the world on fire. If he wants to stay I'd have no hesitation in keeping him. If he wants to go I'd say thanks for everything and please be injured when you play Liverpool.

Hardly a woeful player what a ridiculous comment although I’m hardly suprised. he is an excellent player with unfortunate luck wi injuries. if fit and at his best he would improve our centre midfield no end. problem is that the fitness can’t be relied upon. bad track record so stay clear imo.

100 per cent agree, same against Newcastle. Arnold’s offers far more threat. He and Robbo should have been pushed right up on the wings. Can and Wini take far too many touches in the midfield in games like that. They need to move the ball much much quicker.

Excellent player being ruined by spurs and England by playing him in an advanced role. He is a centre midfielder all day long . Similar physique to Gerrard at a similar age but he needs to play in his correct position soon or he will never reach his potential. Would be a great signing but silly money unfortunately.

To thinl Rodgers wanted him, VVD and Bertrand for buttons and wasn’t allowed to sign any!

Looking forward to the game 2nite! YNWA.

Sakho is poor. Decent in a team that had to defend deep for the majority of games. Poor on the ball, injury prone and not good enough for Liverpool. I would see past it if he ever had 20 games plus consistent run in the team but he hasn't done that in 4 years. Also makes at least one glaring error a game.

Wilson is doing himself no harm at all. The boy has goals in him and is showing a degree of consistency in performance. See how he goes in pre season and if he is still on the fringes we can loan him to a premier league side which will make or break him. Not sure how lONG He has left on his Liverpool contract though. Personally I think he will end up a success at Liverpool.

Agree with most of that team. Only changes I’d make is Walker and Aguero replaces by Valencia and Kane. To be fair Valencia hasn’t been great but I can’t think of any other right backs who have been consistent nevermind outstanding. Gomez and Trent have both been excellent but have shared game time.

Walker imo is one of the most overrated footballers on the planet, with his mate Danny Rose not far behind.

Doesn’t make sense to let him go just because he is a high earner. How much would we need to pay for a new signing to replace him in this market? 20m plus wages.

He has been excellent all season bar a few poor performances like anyone else. Fingers crossed we can keep the rest of our midfielder fit!

Agree, Wini is well suited to the European games. He really has everything in his locker which is frustrating sometimes as he is either lazy or lacks confidence. Technically excellent, fast, strong and has a goal in him. at home anyway!

I think he is hard done by with some of the comments on here .
