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) .

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 😂.

With butland in mind why does a player who signs need to have guarantees of being first choice? For the first time in a while we as a club can attract players because we can compete for the major honours. previously we have had to sign players and make these promises to convince them to join us over another club.

Now it should be a case of we want you at Liverpool and you are here to prove why you should be in the first 11. Robertson being a prime example. If players aren’t happy with that arrangement that's fine we will move on to someone who is willing to fight for the shirt. Plus they should have the belief that they are first 11 material not have someone just hand it to them on a plate.

Giving players guarantees just makes them complacent IMO.

Also forget the money, I. e. ‘30m makes them a starter’. the only thing that makes them a starter is if their good enough to displace someone in the current 11. And it’s not my money so the club can spend what they want.

WYred

1.) 14 May 2018 18:43:24
The only way this transfer makes sense to me if if Klopp thinks that Butland can push Karius for the number 1 spot and that we can get most of the transfer fee back from the sales of Migs and Ward. I just hope we don’t end up paying over the odds for this player.


2.) 14 May 2018 18:49:06
WYred, what is this issue with Butland? Is he coming as Karius' no. 2? Ed01, can you help here?


3.) 14 May 2018 18:59:37
The only way Butland is coming for that amount of money is if Klopp thinks he is an upgrade on Karius. I can't think of too many keepers costing so much money sitting on the bench in World football. I mean, what is our record fee for a keeper? Yet some think a £30 million one is going to sit on the bench?


4.) 14 May 2018 20:23:54
We don't know what the fee is or if it is actually going to complete, macca said from his point of it was almost done. But fees are through the roof and we know we were looking at competition for Karius. Navas is no upgrade on migs and reina is good but not sure if he was seriously considered.
So taking butland as just an addition to the squad its good business as he can push karius to be even better and has pl experience.
As i said in a previous post my options would of been ward (but he has probably indicated he wants to play regular and we messed him around this year) or allison but his fee may of been to large or he may not of been interested.
Either way the only deal i would consider klopp getting wrong is caulker so let's give the boy a chance, if he signs.


 

 

14 May 2018 10:27:49
So Macca has dropped the name of Butland.

I understand the move by the club, I personally think he is an upgrade on Migs. He has just been relegated with Stoke (albeit a poor Stoke side) and now has the chance to compete for No1 at a team competing for top four/ hopefully more! He is used to the premier league and Butland will believe he can take the jersey from Karius. Karius will be happy as he has improved competition but someone he also believes he can keep the jersey from.

If a 'world class' keeper was available then we should of tried to go for them, which I think we have but maybe Alisson has a better offer elsewhere. And we were never going to get the Donnarumma.

So we are getting competition for our No1 jersey, two keepers who are now used to the PL and are also willing to compete with each other rather than someone who might just be happy to see out their career and collect the wage.

My preference would be to promote Ward to No2 but the lad will have his own ambitions and I suspect his patience has run out after being behind in the pecking order to Migs.

So I say trust the club and let two young keepers prove they deserve the no1 jersey.

WYred

1.) 14 May 2018 12:02:18
Salah surprised, the Ox surprised. And Andy Robertson surprised. When are you guys going to trust our recruitment team. Karius has even started to impress and Klavan. All were doubted and slated. Even the lad solanke. He was brilliant today. His movement and inter-play was impressive.

I think butland is an improvement. He will have to fight for the shirt but I believe he has more potential than loris. (sorry loris, I do love you man and have fought your corner this season) if you think butland has come, entering his prime to be a back up player you are mistaken. Think of it from Jack's perspective. A highly rated, young English keeper, in the international squad and will start games for England. More often once he has the European champions no1 shirt. He ain't coming to warm the bench, trust. Trust in klopp.

01 May 2018 22:07:28
IF we get past Roma then the final is going to infuriate me, it’s just going to be full of Ramos throwing himself to the floor and showing the horrible side of football. I would love for us to teach them a lesson on the biggest stage of them all but Reals experience cannot be discounted. And Zidane record of not being knocked out of the CL is mighty impressive.

Let’s hope we get past Roma tomorrow and then we Can dream of wiping the smirks of reals face!

WYred

{Ed0333's Note - I think we’ll beat Real if we get to Kiev. Marcelo won’t even be in the same postcode as Salah which gives me hope and don’t forget they have Navas in goal, granted he made one great save tonite but he always has a mistake in him. Klopp is tactically far superior to Zidane and although they have big name players how good are they as a team? They are weak defensively, I think Van Dijk and Lovren are comparable to Varane and Ramos if not a little better. I think we can exploit them if we can get past Roma and if we don’t lose anymore players in midfield through injury.


1.) 01 May 2018 22:27:43
Very well said there Ed333 completely agree mate. Navas makes as many mistakes as Migs did, Salah, Firmino and Mane firing shots at him? he won't know what's hit him. They haven't faced our attack yet and when they do they'll crumble.

{Ed0333's Note - we gotta get over the hurdle that is Roma first mate. One thing I’ve learnt from supporting Liverpool for 38 years is don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched. Liverpool FC don’t do things the easy way.


2.) 01 May 2018 22:35:26
Spot on, Ed. I would take Lovs and VVD over both of theirs any day. Zidane gets all the credit BUT really, is he a good tactician? I don't think so. Real on the whole, have been dreadful this season esp. if you watch them in la Liga (abject stuff) and in the group stages of the CL where they were appalling. Yes, they have big name players BUT that does not remove from the fact that as a team, good heavens.

Their defence and midfield are only good when they have the ball. When they don't, they are like a sieve. Not tracking back, no work off the ball and the defence is a shambles. Should we make it, I doubt Marcelo will be able to keep Salah quiet and if Vasquez plays RB like he did tonight, then Mane will have a field day. Having said all that. let's finish the job vs Roma first and then we can discuss.

{Ed0333's Note - what a sexy final for the romantics hey? Liverpool and Real both powerhouses of European football with proper history and status. I vividly remember the ‘81 cup final when we beat them 1-0. It was absolutely lashing down in west London and I was staying at my Nans house. My uncle who still lived with my Nan at the time was a TV engineer and he had a color TV and I was watching it in his room. All I can remember of that fateful night was Kennedy’s goal and my uncle taking me for a drive at half time and deliberately driving through the biggest puddle in the world and drenching this poor woman. Honestly the weather was that bad I remeber the rain more than the game. They owe us some revenge but they’ve won two in a row and they can’t be greedy. But the caveat is the Roma game.


3.) 01 May 2018 22:36:53
Yeah you're right mate. Don't get me wrong I am so confident we'll go through but it'll be one hell of a nerve racking game because there's always that 'what if' thought. I just hope we get an early goal or two, it'll be good for my ticker if that's the case.


4.) 01 May 2018 22:50:05
Never a truer word spoken ed0333. Liverpool are at their best when no one expects anything from them. When they are favourites that’s when the problems start. I’m nervous about tomorrow, I think we’ll get through but we’re in for a nervy game I think.

{Ed0333's Note - of course we are were Liverpool Fc mate we don’t do things simple.


5.) 02 May 2018 06:12:32
Agreed. Massive game to get through first tonight but as long as we do (and as long as the red doesn’t play 12th man for Real) someone has got to undo the voodoo that is Real in the CL and why not us!

If we don’t go through tonight, and Roma can overturn this deficit, I think they will do Real too!


6.) 02 May 2018 08:16:00
Real will be different in the final for certain. Carvahal will be back so he’ll be at right back, and I think some others are due back by then such as Isco.


7.) 02 May 2018 14:41:24
Only thing I worry about is Ronaldo.
He’s the closest thing to Maradonna in so far as he could win the game on his own if he’s on song.


 

 

27 Apr 2018 19:12:52
For me it’s quite simple, the Ed’s are entitled to their opinion, they all give up time to provide us a site that’s is the most accurate and factual about Liverpool on the internet. If you don’t like the opinion of an ed that’s fine, opinions are there to be agreed or disagreed with but be respectful, with out these guys (or girls they could be girls) we wouldn’t have a site and it’s their time they give up. So enjoy the site, it’s one I now check daily it’s that good but be mindful or others as we have no idea what’s going on with their lives.

I’m sure I’m like many who visit this site daily but never say anything, till now.
This site is for rumours, we are all desperate to know what’s going on. The Ed’s have the insight and share it with us.
Simple.
No Ed’s, no site

So why people think they are bigger than the Eds I don’t understand.
We need to appreciate their input, not bitch and moan cos we don’t like the way they say things.
If you don’t like it, leave
Don’t push any of the Ed’s out, it doesn’t work without them.

It's pretty simple for me, to get respect you have to give it, if you don't then expect to be burnt.

Talk to people like you expect to be spoken to its called manners. If you talk to people like their idiots expect repercussions sorry.

I'd like to think that the measurement of whether an opinion is worth sharing is if you said it to someones in person would they punch you in the face. we all understand the point about opinions but let's not pretend that we don't have a responsibility with how we share them.

Truth and Salah this is the point many are missing.

Last I saw on them was, Fernandes there was no interest, Fekir we had watched but haven't spoken with Lyon, and Draxler might be an option. Has one of the eds posted an update that i've missed/ can't find?

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.

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.

Ed002, is it possible to have one that covers all the above + any other tidbits of info (incl. Liverpool)? I think it was over the summer you did one to cover multiple clubs and it was very interesting to hear what was going on.

WYred

{Ed002's Note - Each will get there own - perhaps an updat covering all in the last few days would be a good idea. Thanks.}

I would suspect he would be a similar price to what Barcelona bought him for, so he would only be an option IF one of our main three were to leave imo. So don’t expect him doing the melwood lean this summer.

The amount of jobs possibly available in the prem is crazy. Arsenal west ham and everton are definites. Watford always seem to replace the manager, puel is not guarenteed to stay. Benitez is always a potential if he doesn't get backed. Conte at chelsea may also leave.

We don't know what the fee is or if it is actually going to complete, macca said from his point of it was almost done. But fees are through the roof and we know we were looking at competition for Karius. Navas is no upgrade on migs and reina is good but not sure if he was seriously considered.
So taking butland as just an addition to the squad its good business as he can push karius to be even better and has pl experience.
As i said in a previous post my options would of been ward (but he has probably indicated he wants to play regular and we messed him around this year) or allison but his fee may of been to large or he may not of been interested.
Either way the only deal i would consider klopp getting wrong is caulker so let's give the boy a chance, if he signs.

You have to stick with tradition, get smashed in 90 mins and hope the boys get the job done. Although this is Liverpool it’s definitely going to pens!
