Why are both the echo and Sky reporting this Alisson deal as breaking the record that city paid for ederson? It may be the premier league record but the actual record was Buffon back in 2001.

On the subject of Alisson not seen much of him but ed001 seems to rate him highly so thatll do for me.

Also gutted for the ox, the reaction on here shows how integral he became to the squad and hope his recovery goes well.

WYred

Reporters only have a 5 second memory, they probably forgot all about Buffon being the worlds most expensive keeper until this deal is completed lol.


2.) 18 Jul 2018 20:04:30
It varies depending on which currency you use because of the fluctuation in exchange rate.

Buffon held the euro record. Ederson held the sterling record. Alisson breaks both records.


3.) 18 Jul 2018 20:39:02
It’s being reported as. PL record.


4.) 18 Jul 2018 21:40:36
Didn’t they pay 52 Euro’s but for Buffon and Lilian Thurman, so for 2 players.


5.) 18 Jul 2018 23:21:08
It’s as Adam said. Buffon, although more Euros, was sold at a time when the £ was much stronger against the €.

Hence Buffon in £ at the time (2001?) is less than Ederson in £ when he was bought last year.

Not much in it, mind.

And when you think about the inflation of transfer fees in the last 15-20 years, Buffons transfer fee was in the Coutinho - Neymar range in today’s market!

What’s most amazing is that, in light of everything, Juve STILL got a bargain!

In regards to the champions league it is a competition we all love but I feel it has also given a way out for many teams including us, to say, we finished top four it’s a good season.

Take champions league out of it and the only thing that should matter is winning the league (which only one team can do a year but you should be damn close in doing so) and winning a trophy.

Why has the champions league become bigger than the domestic league? don't get me wrong 2005 will live long in the memory but as an English club domestic success should be the be all and end all. For instance I’ll remember 08/09 as we came so close and even closer in 13/14 but I don’t remember the other seasons where we scrape 4th. Finishing top should be and always should be the aim with an FA Cup or League Cup (none of this carabao nonsense) .

WYred

1.) 04 Feb 2018 13:31:13
I don't think qualifying for the champions league has taken precedent over winning the title, it's just the minimum requirement from top 6 teams currently. I think if you asked most Liverpool fans they would prefer the domestic title and I think if you asked our owners they would prefer to be the owners that helped give LFC that. Where have you drawn this conclusion that the champions league is more important? It's more important for citeh currently because they haven't won it yet, and you can bet your bottom dollar that every manager within the top 6 absolutely strives to be crowned champions of the premier league, its not like citeh was the only team set out to try for the title this year and the other 5 just wanted top 4. it's just how the season has panned out with citeh being so consistent in results.


2.) 04 Feb 2018 14:04:03
Sorry WYred but surely you understand the financial rewards for UCL qualification and progression due to tv rights sponsorship etc etc. All fans want the big name players at their clubs, those players in turn want paying big money and want to be playing in the most competitive competition there is in club football the UCL. Its sad really that most clubs view the English domestic competitions as a hindrance nowadays due money pure and simple.


3.) 04 Feb 2018 14:44:06
Why not go for both? 🤔.


4.) 04 Feb 2018 16:25:09
I don’t think CL or top 4 has taken precedence over the league at all, but it’s about being able to realistically build a team that can compete. I would take the title over the CL and I would take a title over a top 4 space the following/ previous season. Money isn’t really an issue any more but top players want to play in the CL, end of story, without CL our best players, who we will have usually been forced to nurture ourselves from young talents because of not being able to attract top players, will want to leave for a better chance of winning trophies/ playing CL and so the cycle continues. There are extraordinary events of course, I. e. Leicester but this was an exception, not the rule, and i’ll be amazed if I see similar again in my lifetime. Top 4 and CL is not the be all and end all, but it is necessary to become and stay as a top team. I said at the start of the year Top four for us would be a successful season and I stand by that.


5.) 04 Feb 2018 18:50:44
Because it helps to attract the best new players.


6.) 04 Feb 2018 20:21:32
Correct stoneage 🤝.


7.) 04 Feb 2018 21:43:49
It's not always the case arsenal jus bought abumayang they ain't in champs league an also in 6th, also if u have a manager a player wants too play under that helps as abumayang has said he wanted too play under Wenger an he now playing for arsenal, as vvd wanted too play for Liverpool also.


8.) 04 Feb 2018 23:34:30
Apologies don't think i worded my point correctly. My point was that qualifying for the champions league was considered a success. I. e. we finished top four so we had a good season.

The only measurement for a good season should be winning a trophy. You could argue a title challenge is successful but only if you just miss out. But finishing fourth should not be considered an achievement it is a mere bonus that you have qualified for the champions league.

Obviously champs league has the money and attracts players, and in my original post that question was rhetroical as its money the makes the game go round which is an unfortunate outcome of the game becoming so successful.


9.) 05 Feb 2018 09:59:17
WYred, there's a difference between winning trophies and achieving targets. Both Wigan and Swansea have won major trophies since our last one but clearly they're not better teams than us. So we need a better way of measuring how well we're currently doing and that's the league.

Goals scored is a great measure of our attack, goals conceded of our defence and points of our general standing. If these records are going up or down season by season then that's measure of our progress.

Being in the top four isn't success in itself but it's a target that's shows we're improving. From 2010-16 we made the top four once, hopefully we going to do it for the second time in a row this season, that's progress.

If we start to come top four regularly then we can increase our targets to 'challenge for the title' and if we challenge for the title regularly we can increase our target to 'win the league'. That's the aim but it's a journey.

Saying we're unsuccessful because we didn't win the league is unhelpful as it wasn't a realistic target for us this season. Having a target of 'top four' and achieving that target shows we're on the right track.


10.) 05 Feb 2018 10:59:00
I think for this season if we qualified for champs league 2 seasons in a row that's progression too were we have come from, it shows a level of consistency in the league but obviously we have too take it too the next level in terms of winning leagues an cups, from the top too the bottom of the club as a whole we always should b thinking through the ceiling but these days money is king an we lag behind in that department as there are 5 or six teams as just as wealthy an 3 of them have juggernaut money.


11.) 05 Feb 2018 11:07:41
So the measurement for success is winning a trophy but you’d rather not be in a competition with a trophy up for grabs so you can focus on 3 other comps, at least 2 of which are less prestigious?


12.) 05 Feb 2018 11:35:43
I still don't think you're correct WYred - most people laugh at the few who considers it a success on it's own merit.

However, most things in life happen in steps. We've spent almost a decade out of the Champions League for the most part, so the first step is getting back into it and solidifying our position as regulars. It's a good indication of the path to success - no one really believes its the end goal of it.


13.) 05 Feb 2018 12:09:27
i think top 2 should should qualify automatic for CL and the winner of both cups get the remaining two place.


14.) 05 Feb 2018 12:33:32
Hailstones. aubumayang went to Arsenal because no other big club would buy him and he wanted to move! Also his current club are out the champions league so it made no difference to his current season.


15.) 05 Feb 2018 15:00:27
Tia, mate abumayang is quality he will bag arsenal a lot of goals bet u he has a field day in the premiership, no one wanted Suarez but we did, no one wanted coutihno we did, no one wanted Salah we did, doesn't mean anything they have a world class striker.


16.) 05 Feb 2018 16:11:36
Swish, I never said I don't want to be in the champions league, my point is that you shouldn't meerly aim for top four (you may during the season have to adapt your targets depending on results) but before a ball is kicked the title should be the aim plus any trophy your competing in.

ending a season with just a top four finish can be seen as progress from where we have been but should still be considered an average season at best.

This site is about opinions which over certain things will differ but it is what makes this site so addictive.


17.) 05 Feb 2018 18:36:26
how many clubs, Liverpool included, wish for top four, it brings so many pluses, meaning you have performed well in the bread and butter of the premiership, then to have a good run, in all the cups, hoping to win one of course, really being in the Champions League does attract the better players, and money,
this then means you can then strenghten your team, giving you a better chance to win games,
so the best teams, then have a much better chance of staying up there with the best,
we have just added VVD and Mo Salah, our full back situation looks so much better now, even Karius is improving, we have Kieta coming here in 4 months, Lovren looks good with VVD,
there to me I can see a big improvement,
if we can add a class midfielder, we can def set our sights even higher next season .


18.) 06 Feb 2018 02:24:55
WY, the aim is to win everything we enter, the top 4 is the minimum level we want to be achieving, not maximum. just cos that's what we reference as a milestone doesn't mean that we're only happy competing at that level.

Does anyone know if a player with less than 6 months on their contract can sign a pre- contract agreement outside of the January transfer window?

WYred

1.) 02 Feb 2018 20:36:36
Yes as long as it’s with a club for a different country or FA as far as I’m aware. At least that seems to be the general rule. Need to get the old law manual out!


2.) 02 Feb 2018 20:37:59
Yes, as long as it is a non English side.


3.) 02 Feb 2018 20:52:36
I think players can sign contracts with clubs at any time of the season, the issue is registration to play for that particular club. So yes a player with less than 6 months on his contract can sign a pre contract outside the jan window.


4.) 03 Feb 2018 02:06:44
Fa not country. by the way eds is there any country havin different fa?

{Ed001's Note - any country having different FA from what?}


5.) 03 Feb 2018 11:29:34
“I think players can sign contracts with clubs at any time of the season, the issue is registration to play for that particular club. So yes a player with less than 6 months on his contract can sign a pre contract outside the jan window. ”

Ed002 will correct me if I’m wrong, but players can sign for clubs at any stage of the season as long as the selling club agree to it. Registration can only be transferred during a transfer window.

When a player only has 6 months left on their contract they don’t need to seek the permission of their parent club to sign pre-contract agreements. If it’s within the same FA then a fee needs to be decided - either by agreement or by tribunal (eg Danny Ings)

{Ed002's Note - Right.}


6.) 04 Feb 2018 01:53:56
Livebird31 Swansea and Cardiff are in different FA to country and vice versa.

Ed002 has played a blinder with wonderdogsparky, my opinion is that Couts is off and VVD has taken his house.

5.) 02 Jan 2018 20:44:01
Ed002 I think its great mate what you have done. Certainly makes it fun us all stressing over who it is arriving. Is it someone youve mentioned before like on the Sharkopod?

Been confirmed by the club! VVD is a red at 75 mil though i think that is a huge risk and if it doesn't work and we are not challenging next year for trophies klopp will be under massive pressure.

WYred

1.) 27 Dec 2017 18:16:48
We are always challenging for trophies as every club is when the competition starts and managers are always under pressure. Whatever the money bandied about it it's a) irrelevant and b) obscene. You pay what the market rate is which goes up day by day and will do so until the bubble bursts. Opinions are like you know what's - we all have one. If this happens and it's a player that Klopp thinks can improve us then lets' be positive and see where it takes us.


2.) 27 Dec 2017 18:18:57
I really hope it works out well - I want a world class player for that money, I fear we've got merely a good one.


3.) 27 Dec 2017 18:25:23
Great opportunity to try the back 3 with Matip, Gomez, and VVD. wingbacks with options on both sides and a defensive midfielder dropping in to the triangle. Good flexibility and mobility as well as hopefully quick ball movement.

I know Hendo gets a lot of grief but we seem more balanced and dynamic without him in the team, do you think he will stay on or a replacement may be looked at?


4.) 27 Dec 2017 18:29:27
He is quality I am made up but we need more simple as, we need a new qaulify established keeper who we can trust too not make errors, it's not easy but they out there, hope vvd form was cos his head was with us an not because of his injury hell of a lot of money.


5.) 27 Dec 2017 18:31:47
Crazy stuff. But credit where it is due to everyone at the club for resurrecting an all but dead transfer and beating Chelsea and City to him. Am amazed. I think I need a drink!

{Ed002's Note - They did not resurrect a transfer as they never spoke to Southampton about the player regarding a transfer. Manchester City has a lengthy list of CBs they are interested in. Chelsea's interest in a centre back is elsewhere.}


6.) 27 Dec 2017 18:36:25
I highly doubt we will change the system to accommodate VVD. Nearly impossible to incorporate the "Fab Four" in a three at the back system.


7.) 27 Dec 2017 18:39:19
I think he's a decent player and I'm not slating him here.

But SEVENTY FIVE MILLION QUID? ARE YOU MAD?


8.) 27 Dec 2017 18:43:52
Kimos so by definition Swansea are challenging for the title before the season starts then? Without going into the money too much (sorry ed002) 75million is a huge fee (even in the inflated market) and is going to represent a huge investment by the club, one of which I would fully expect the club to think is enough to push the club from top four contenders to title challengers (next season, city are out of sight)
Klopp, when he joined, said he would win the title within three years and the club are trying to give him the tools. It is now down to him to put those tools into practice.


9.) 27 Dec 2017 18:56:08
Overpriced to say the least, that's suarez money! Guess we see if he picks himself up, he's been dog this season!


10.) 27 Dec 2017 20:02:15
Do you want our competitors to spend all the big money and we just buy the £10m and under defenders? We have tried to penny pinch and look what has happened. The signing is a game changer, just what we needed.


11.) 27 Dec 2017 20:02:43
The money goes up all the time WYRed. Each window. To compare prices of previous and recent windows makes little sense. I read earlier that he's not worth 1 Bale or 2 Salahs. At previous window prices Bale didn't have one and Salah is now worth considerably more than £35 or 40m whatever it was. As fans we want the best for our teams and the money we have little or no concept of how it goes. Let it be and hope he turns out alright.


12.) 27 Dec 2017 20:38:44
Great singing I’m dubious about the money spent and have thought there may well be cheaper options out there for a cheaper price but we’ve got him we wanted him first let’s get behind him. A top keeper or one with the potential to be top next and I’ll never ask for anything again.


13.) 28 Dec 2017 00:29:41
Cheaper cheaper cheaper god my post wasn’t great 😂.

So i was reading quotes from Mane this morning, at least I thought i was. Turns out they were completely fabricated by the paper that shall not be named.

How can papers continue making stuff up and get away with it.

I am glad though that Mane didn’t say what he supposedly had said, as quotes like that have a way of coming back and biting you on the backside.
Stay humble and focused and see where we end up in May.

WYred

1.) 16 Jan 2019 19:20:25
OP it was the quotes themselves gave the game away, really. Anyone who has watched Mane do interviews, can see that he does not enjoy it and always seems nervous cos he is a pretty private guy. He is also a man of very few words hence, he rarely gives interviews except on the club website and all.

The fact that Talk-crap took this up as some type of "gotcha" moment shows you how completely despicable these people are. Keep the hae coming, losers. it will only be more fuel for our fire and make this all worth it when we eventually win the PL trophy.


 

 

04 Jan 2019 11:02:34
So let's look at where we are

Four clear, played arguably our hardest game of the season.

Played all the big boys away, barring united.

Last night was billed as a title decider but it was far from it, just because city won doesn't mean it is a shoe in they will now win it.

The fact that all our rivals are desperate for City to win just shows they generally think we can win this. We should use that as motivation, let's go and make their worst nightmare a reality.

This team are scarily good, and we lost to a team just as good by a single goal when we were no where near our best.

I have no doubts that we are in a title race, and isn't that what we all wanted at the start or would you prefer we were fighting for fourth?

WYred

1.) 04 Jan 2019 12:46:41
WYred, if you had any doubts we were not in the title race after all that you said, I would be very concerned, lol. We are right where we want to be and even if we had won last night, we would still not have won a damn thing.

As for other rival fans, we are FIRMLY in their heads now and if you check SM, you would think that the way their clubs' season pan out, depend on whether we win the PL or not. It was the same when we were in the CL final. How pathetic is that? It just shows how much work has been accomplished by the club, owners, Klopp, players and the fans. Let this be fuel for our fire to never stop, never settle and finish the job game by game. Up Da Pool.


 

 

30 Dec 2018 20:27:14
So city are on the horizon and we have a 7 point lead, who would of thought that?

The game for me will be a tactical battle, city won’t want to lose but know they need to win. So do they go all out knowing they could get punished on the counter or do they go conservative and hope they nick a goal.

As for us i think we will set up for the counter, try and press them in midfield and pick the pieces of their defence. That set up puts us at our devastating best.

I do expect city to go for it though, similar to our second leg last year. which could play in to our hands. Either way worse case is we are four points ahead of city come Thursday night. I know I would of bit your hand off for that scenario at the beginning of the season.

But if we win, I think there will be a lot more believers (me included) and plenty of rival fans worried our wait may finally be coming to an end.

I will say this though, after 2014 I won’t be singing ‘we are going to win the league’ we need to take one game at a time and not get ahead of ourselves.

WYred

1.) 30 Dec 2018 20:34:23
With Delph suspended and Mendy injured, surely we've got to really target the right flank as much as we can. Zinchenko looks very suspect and is their only option there at the moment. I'd expect us to go 4-3-3 with Salah on the right, or 4-2-3-1 with Shaqiri looking to exploit that area. It's got all the makings of a cracking match.


2.) 30 Dec 2018 20:38:33
I think they'll go all out and attack us, I also think they may get a couple of goals but if they do we'll destroy them on the counter, their defence and keeper can't handle this team. Bring them on, I expect an exciting game but the way I look at it is if I was a City fan I'd be much more concerned than what I am being a Liverpool fan. I think we'll beat them no problem, I'm not nervous about the game, I'm more excited to see us 10 points ahead :) .


3.) 30 Dec 2018 21:09:40
There lb is woeful, salah is on fire.
De bryne was brought off recently whereas our midfield is fully fit (I believe) I think Keita may start, milner will and so will gini so it's Keita or shaqiri for me.

Or, if we play Conservatively, not to loose, we could see fabhino, gini and hendo. Oh I don't know.

A loss will take the wind out of our sails but I believe the squad is calm enough to realise we have that 4 point cushion. I don't see us loosing though, their defence is suspect and we have the perfect tools to deal with them.

Their attack is class and we have the perfect tools to deal with them.

Their midfield is quality but guess what? We have the tools to deal with them.

If we draw it will be like a win for us and a loss for them. If we win it will be silly season and if we lose, we still start the year as favourites and are in a dominating position.

A fantastic December for our club.


4.) 30 Dec 2018 21:14:55
When big teams need to Win (especially at home) they usually find a way. For example PSG vs us, or Us versus Napoli. If we play it like a free hit and go and attack I guenually think we'll beat them.


5.) 30 Dec 2018 21:29:36
I think Mane will be on the right, with Bobby on the left and Salah in the centre. Maybe Keita will start, which will allow Bobby drift into the centre with Keita out left.
But I think Mane has to be on the right. His directness will be too much for Zinchenko.
I also think Pep will go out to attack, and it will work against City. We just need to take advantage of our opportunities.


6.) 30 Dec 2018 21:33:40
I agree with you Salah. They're like a wounded tiger that will come out to attack and prove they're still the reigning champions. However, I think a 4-3-3 is our best option to start of the game and then adapt it to how they are playing. Our key will again be the midfield and how it deals with De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva. Let's see if Fernandinho plays? Wijnaldum-Henderson-Fabinho is our best option with Milner coming in whenever needed. TAA and Robertson will have their hands full with Sane and Sterling.

WE WILL WIN.


7.) 30 Dec 2018 22:58:32
Totally agree with you ArAy1969, a lot of games still to play but any result apart from a loss will be a massive result so the midfield you mentioned of Fabinho, Hendo and Gini would be perfect for this game. We will miss Shaq’s crativity but that is a solid midfield and with Man City probably going on the all out attack our front 3 will hit them on the counter.


8.) 30 Dec 2018 23:08:08
Such a different team when fernandinho plays. I for one am nervous, as living in Australia, I wake up and the first thing I do is refresh the BBC football page, that one second wait is agonising! You can usually tell who's won by the picture they use in the thumbnail!


9.) 30 Dec 2018 23:22:35
liverpoolFC08, a "free hit" does not exist. We are talking about football at the highest level here where you approach a game with the right attitude to either win the game or not lose and talking about the biggest game so far as a "free hit", is the wrong attitude to have and thankfully, Klopp will not be doing any of that.

As for what we should do or how to approach it, I think we should just play to contain/ frustrate them in the first 25 mins and pick them off with pace, power and precision when we break. Pep in the first meeting at Anfield, literally "parked the bus" (by his own standards) and confessed to the whole world after the game that, he has NO idea how to play the way he wants to play against us. Literally, the man gave up. Now, his worst nightmare has come true: City has to come out to play against us. So let us do to him what we always do to him: Frustrate and Break with pace on the counter.

Sitting back won't work. Last year at the Etihad in the champions league we started passing it around at the back, bang 2minutes in Goal. Then we scrapped that idea and attacked them. And we battered them.

i think they will be cautious like they played at Anfield. Pep is very wary that his gung-ho approach hasn't worked against us. There will still be 17 games left- that's enough time to potentially make up 7 points. he won't want to make that a 10 point chase.

In 2 games recently I’ve been sat watching nervously from KO. First up Man U - playing awful football but a team we just haven’t been able to beat. Secondly Arsenal, a team which was wounded having just lost their 22 game unbeaten run to a poor Saints team and a team scoring for fun.
Both games we absolutely dominated for 20 minutes, I mean REAL domination. The opponents could barely get out of their own half. It was only through silly errors that those teams were still in the game.

We seem to be able to go up a gear for big games at the minute, I expect the same against City. They will be shellshocked.


13.) 31 Dec 2018 05:00:30
I think we’ll put in a three man midfield and make it a midfield battle.

Giving them time on the ball is asking for trouble as Silva or De Bruyne will pick a pass eventually. give them no time and turn the ball over however, and we’ll create chances on the break.

I’m betting it’ll be Hendo, Gini and Milner midfield (or Keita if Milner not fit) and suspect it’ll be a 2-2 draw which I’d be happy with.

I hope so Ron. Watched em against saints and they don't look as good as last year. Dunno why. Sane getting less game time. De btyne struggling with fitness. I think we can beat them.


15.) 31 Dec 2018 02:05:48
I think we will beat them, when the Saints attacked them, they looked poor. They really struggle when they’re on the back foot which we haven’t really done in the league this season. I can see them attacking us for 10-15 mins then us taking over, 3-1 Liverpool is my prediction.

I don’t think they’ll start Zinchenko, I think it will be Danilo at left back and Walker at right back.

So we are top and 6 points clear at the halfway point, who would of thought that.

Long way to go and huge games on the horizon but we have laid a great foundation to build on.2019 could be an amazing year so fingers crossed. But we should only take it game by game and see where we are come May. THe gunners are next and that’ll be no walk in the park, emery has changed them into a good side but I hope we have enough.

Although a positive result next week against city and I may have to change my prediction from the start of the season that we would fall just short of city,

I can't believe we was 2points behind city and had to make up 15 goal diff,5 games later we are 7 points ahead of them and made up the goal diff, still long way to go, but we are being ruthless now how we kept pressing against newcastle never let up, next two games are massive, but watever happens im enjoying this season.


2.) 27 Dec 2018 17:46:07
Scousetim, neither can I. IMO, this is what happens when you focus on what YOU are doing instead of bothering to wonder what City is doing or seeing everything you do thru the prism of what City do. Our team have just kept on plugging away since game 1 of the season, blacking out all the white noise coming from rival fans, the media and sadly, some disgruntled and impetuous LFC fans. And before we knew what was going on, City are crumbling and their leads on GD and on points have been wiped out.

Had the team been obsessed with City the whole time and getting distracted by it, this would never have happened and in fact, we prolly would have fallen further behind. Loving the season myself (and I thought last season was the most enjoyment I ever had in a season as a Liverpool fan) BUT We need to keep that "tunnel vision" (Klopp's words, not mine) till the end of the season and focus on ourselves. If we do that and with some luck, whatever City or anyone does simply ain't going to matter. On to the Gunners on Sat.

We are top at Christmas, not often we can say that but hope we buck the trend of the last couple of occasions where we have fallen short.

As for last night we appeared to struggle with the conditions. We gave wolves far too many opportunities but they luckily didn’t take them. Not our best performance but the result matters at this time of year and another three points on the board.

Still think bobby is at his best as a number 9, still influences the game but ran people ragged playing up top. Fabinho is growing in to the team but was guilty of sloppy passes. VVD is a monster. Salah is just on a different level and wouldn’t say he’s at his best yet.

We beat a very good side in wolves and now we move on to the next game, where hopefully we can continue our winning run. And let’s hope Hodgson does a job on city and nick a good result.

And why I have the chance, merry Christmas to all the Ed’s (thank you for the site) and all the posters!

Spot on, WYRed. The conditions were awful for both teams and it showed. Wolves played us very well in the first half cos their press was very effective and we had issues dealing with it. What we did do well was to strike at the right moments and defend well in our box. Sometimes, you just need to be very effective in both boxes and the win will come. That is what big teams do and we ARE a big team now. Also, our boys and Klopp made the right adjustments at half time cos we just stopped playing football and letting them get at us (Klopp referenced it after the game) and when we did that, Wolves were toast esp. after they could not maintain the press the way they did in the fiurst half. Make no mistake about it, Wolves are a very good team and Klopp was right to fear and respect them. On to Newcastle.


2.) 22 Dec 2018 10:50:09
Have to agree with you on Bobby, his passing isn't the best to be playing behind salah. His pressing and movement are still a joy to watch but I prefer him further up the pitch.
I'm nit picking though and it's great that Klopp can change his tactics depending on the game, top of the league and unbeaten let's keep it going!

This is just an opinion based on what i've read but,
Marko to turkey, a guess would be Besiktas
Origi to stay, Solanke to go on loan instead
Migs to stay, although ed002 has said his agent is still trying,
Ojo on loan, ideally to championship, can't see playing in france helping him.

I thought once it’s registered it was there for the season, and Ed002 I know he was looking at leaving but wasn’t Besiktas an option for him? Is there many teams left as an option for migs?

{Ed002's Note - His agent has been trying.}

Wish him all the best, I really hope he goes on to have a very good career.

Surely means migs will be kept to jan at least.

{Ed002's Note - Right, he sure as hell will be unhappy given the work his agent has done.}

I avoid picking Liverpool players at all, if I pick them they get injured or don’t score points. People think I’m mental but refuse to risk it.

*Insert aoe post here*

All messing on aside spot on salah, don’t get abusing someone who gives up their time not just to give us free info but sharkopods that probably take a few hours to put together.

Respect goes along way in this world, hopefully doesn’t drive him off again.

You can see why finances don’t like being mentioned.

I am no way in the know but I am guessing the following points.

Liverpool are not skint but will have to comply with FFP rules.

Numerous posts often end up on here saying we need Werner, De Ligt and others. Money is finate.

If we were looking at a ‘big’ name (I use that term loosely) then logic dictates a first teamer would likely be on their way out.

We would all love for Liverpool to have 6 forwards to pick from that are all of salah’s quality but with transfer fees going up we need to be sensible.

Ed002 is often the one that is asked about transfers so the same questions can be seen as repetitive hence the rtp reply. But all the Ed’s add their elements to this site and some need to be a little less hurt when they disagree or see a reply that isn’t the answer they want.

Ed002 gets a lot of abuse that doesn’t make the site, don’t forget he puts time into this site for free so the input should be treated with respect.

As for macca some treat it as gospel, don’t forget they also contribute what they think is correct at the time but football is ever changing and can change in seconds.

Ed002 comments (I think) are based on some thinking that as soon as they see a rumour it must be true or expect us to buy £60m players every two minutes which isn’t the case.

VVD and Gomez are our first choice, if Lovren or matip were to leave then I’d expect investment to be made.
