I see we're being linked with Neves. Can't find anything through the search engine sayjng that we're linked. Is it nonsense?


1.) 18 Apr 2018 15:36:50
Its some agent apparently suggesting it, can't see wolves having been promoted being too pleased with that. Although it is that leach of a person who takes all kind of money out of the game that is his direct agent.

2.) 18 Apr 2018 15:56:54
The agent is Jorge Mendes i think, according to the story he has both neves and talisca on his books. The story says he is trying to set up a move for Neves to LFC and talisca for Wolves. Would be a bit of a tasty pay day for him I guess.

3.) 18 Apr 2018 16:48:23
I'd be happy with Neves. He's taken to the rough and tumble of the championship and stood head and shoulders above the rest.

4.) 18 Apr 2018 18:33:51
Neves was too good for the Championship but his agent couldn't engineer a move last season. His performances have shown he's a star and Wolves got a more than fair return for what was a giant fee for a Championship club. Selling him isn't really necessary -- the plan was always to be in the premier league -- but I think he will move again in the summer. Wouldn't mind a 21 year old with his talents in the squad, that's for sure!

5.) 18 Apr 2018 22:41:40
I'd love Neves here, for no other reason than he is one of the stars of CM15 and I always buy him!

6.) 19 Apr 2018 09:37:15
Doesn't his agent also own a percentage of Wolves?

7.) 19 Apr 2018 12:23:40
Its not that his agent couldn't get him a Prem move, more that Mendes is some sort of director or something for Wolves and has moved his pawns around to get Wolves promoted, and its worked. I am sure Mended will get some bonus for his part in that, and will now profit should any clubs come calling for the players he represents.
The Chinese owners of Wolves now also have stakes in Mendes' company, its all incestuous all benefiting each other in kind.
I do like Neves though, just feel its lazy journalism. We were linked the last two summers and we have a CM leaving, link is too obvious to make.

8.) 19 Apr 2018 12:25:55
Other way round, Spud, was reading that the Chinese owner of Wolves also bought a 20% stake in Mendes's (agent) agency before buying Wolves.

9.) 20 Apr 2018 11:57:17
I think it's the owners of Wolves who owns a stake in his agency.

Mane out for six weeks.


1.) 03 Apr 2017 22:48:22
Results aren't expected until tomorrow. Nice try though.

2.) 03 Apr 2017 23:06:38
Take it you're on the medical team seeing as he's not had his scan yet. anyway maybe put TAA in his position as he's pretty pacey wouldn't upset the team dynamic too much. Hopefully Manè is back sooner.

3.) 03 Apr 2017 23:22:08
Not good news. Luckily Coutinho seems to be getting back to his best and LFC have hit some form too. We need to get on with it.

4.) 03 Apr 2017 23:29:39
Mane had a scan yesterday. Swelling could not provide definite answer as such fears are that he will be out of commission for >6 weeks; devastating for our top 4 ambitions.

5.) 04 Apr 2017 00:06:54
Praying for a speedy recovery. He was massively missed during the AFCON.

6.) 04 Apr 2017 01:53:34
lol just insert some dude who is pacey and the team dynamic won't be upset too much. #fifalogic.

7.) 04 Apr 2017 14:05:51
We haven't won a game when he hasn't started so this could be a tricky time. I don't see anyone else in the squad who can step up and give us what he brings.

8.) 04 Apr 2017 23:05:48
We're going through some staffing change and the most common thing people say is "oh they'll be big shoes to fill". I'm like maaaan c'mon, we got to bring in someone new to do their best at what they are good at and my job is to set the conditions so they can be successful. If we just want to bring someone in to try and be Mane then its no wonder we have suffered without him. Klopp will have to tinker and adjust the tactics and the established players will have to adjust on the pitch accordingly. If they constantly look up field hoping for a flying senegalese bullet in disguise as origi or TAA or woodburn, then we can expect a hard time. Play to people's strengths man!

Also, thought Klopp got all the subs right last night. and thank f*** no Matip in the last five minutes!


1.) 19 Sep 2018 09:29:56
I've got to disagree there (not about Matip! ), I really thought Klopp could have bought another midfielder earlier as the game became more open and before Liverpool conceded the second.

I think Keita would have eaten up that space that was being left for the midfield to run into. Obviously an incredible result but I think with earlier subs it would have been far less dramatic!

2.) 19 Sep 2018 09:48:24
Was happy not to see Matip appear but he still took off Mane for Fabinho and changed the shape to see the game out. Needs to let us do what put us in a winning position and stop confusing the flow to make us more solid - it makes us weaker!

{Ed001's Note - he didn't change the shape. He just moved Gini into the wide right role and Fabinho into midfield.}

3.) 19 Sep 2018 09:52:39
Nonsense Angry. Mo made a mistake when we weren’t set and they got lucky with the ricochet. Keita couldn’t possibly have stopped that.

4.) 19 Sep 2018 10:17:37
I am not saying that mistake wouldn't have happened I just think with some fresh legs in midfield we could have added a third before PSG got their second.

But as I said before, a brilliant result and who I am to tel Klopp to fix what isn't broken!

5.) 19 Sep 2018 14:13:27
Ye I agree with angry, we were calling for a change in midfield about 10mins before their 2nd goal. Personnel or set-up, we just seem to get our midfield stuck in turnstile mode often.

6.) 19 Sep 2018 23:12:32
Fabinho looks like a Matip 😂😂.

7.) 20 Sep 2018 18:02:43
Spot on Angry. Keita would have provided that option for Salah! Kieta is still our best Center Midfielder.



07 Aug 2018 21:18:17
Another amazing performance from Shaqiri. He's got to be pushing for a first team place. Could he play the Coutinho role?


1.) 07 Aug 2018 21:27:05
I think he could flidby. Let's see how he is tactically. I mean, he is massive, surely he can tackle well. If not he could be turned into a number 8 or no10? Klopp is like that. Buys a acm and turns him into a solid dm, gini bossing man City last season.

I would play him behind the striker, no10 role. But who gets dropped? We have such a wealth of players.

I thimk gini will start at West ham, he wasn't at the world Cup, I'm guessing he is one of the guys Klopp was talking about, when he said, some are at the level others are not.

I imagine fab, keita and gini will start. They might swap gini for shaqiri. He is continuing to prove us doubters wrong. Lallana has a shout too.

Sunday seems a lot closer now!

2.) 07 Aug 2018 21:32:01
Lads been on fire.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 21:34:15
He is definitely the real deal if we go by what he has shown thus far in pre-season. I hope he can keep his attitude in check. I know it's been said but I'll just repeat it; in Sturridge and Shaqiri we have very capable understudies for the front 3 and even the AM slot.

The player who has worried me is actually Fabinho. Seems off in terms of timing of passes and even positioning. It was strange for Klopp to ask him to play CB for a half, instead of Klavan, but I guess Klopp sees it too and wanted to maximize game time for him.

4.) 07 Aug 2018 22:05:36
Thing is sturridge made of glass and lallana the same not too mention matip hope our squad stands up through the course of the season.

{Ed025's Note - thats the only reservation i have about liverpools title challenge hailstones...the strength in depth of the squad, injuries to the likes of VVD or salah especially if they are long term could be a disaster mate..

5.) 07 Aug 2018 22:30:20
ArAy - Shaqiri won't be an understudy, not if he plays like that all season.

Ed25 - I wrote the other day about Gini having a cracking season ahead, I still think it's going to happen after tonight's match!

{Ed025's Note - never seen the game adam but i just dont know where he fits in mate..

6.) 07 Aug 2018 22:35:27
Totally agree. Gomez also has a weaker side with injuries.
I’ve said it all along, another quality CB for me.

7.) 08 Aug 2018 01:36:28
I disagree, heavily. Fabhino's positioning is probably been one of his best assets. He plays the role that gets over looked, same as hendo and gini. I reckon fab is on a par with hendo. His passing has been impressive.

I didn't watch the game last nivht.

8.) 08 Aug 2018 00:33:26
What was great to see ed025 was Wijnaldum working his bollocks off. He looked like a player possessed at times and finished off a cracking move with a well taken goal to be fair, and was very close a 2nd time. He worked tirelessly the whole first half. Obviously i don't know the ins and outs of the club wanting to sell/ him wanting to leave etc. But what was nice is he certainly played like someone that was desperate to be factored into our plans for the coming season and that was nice to watch. To now be able to attract players with our style of football and fend off bigger opposition and have current squadies wanting to play their hearts out for a chance to contribute shows me that we're on the right path to making steps towards a future rather than living off a distant memory.

On a side note, Shaqiri is looking like the bargain of the season. I questioned his attitude and application when he was linked but he's like a totally different player to the guy we saw at stoke. he's unselfish, pressing like no-ones business. Its really great to see.

{Ed025's Note - i suspect gini knows he has to up his game to stay at the club smallsy, last season he put in a lot of lethargic performances imo but now competition means unless he knuckles down and puts a shift in he could be shown the door, shaqiri has done well and is another who must see this as the last chance saloon and that can only be a good thing for the club mate..



04 Aug 2018 21:20:28
Shaqiri looking like he's going to prove me wrong. He was awesome again when he came on.
Lots of tracking back too.
Could be an absolute steal.


1.) 04 Aug 2018 22:49:49
It’s very odd that people doubted his talent. It was always his attitude that was the problem and that’s still to be tested. We’ll see how he handles being on the bench at times this season.

2.) 04 Aug 2018 23:31:39
There's no doubt he's a very talented player, and it's funny because not one you particularly liked either (for no reason)
But soon as he's in the team he's becoming a very likable lad I love how direct and quick his play is. Go on Shaq!

3.) 05 Aug 2018 02:13:28
Kman I don’t think anyone on here doubted his talent ( not that I recall) more about his style and his well publicised attitude issues. Hopefully he proves us all wrong on those levels.

4.) 05 Aug 2018 14:47:26
I don’t think anybody doubted his ability Kman, it was as you said, his attitude and his laziness especially with tracking back lol.



01 Aug 2018 11:53:43
Gutted for Karius, I really hope he stays and fights for his place.
I can't help but think if he hadn't broken his hand when he first joined things would be a lot different.


1.) 01 Aug 2018 12:40:18
I hope Karius is happy in what he does whether that’s stay or go. It’s alright saying I hope he stays and fights and YNWA and all that but what if he doesn’t want to be here anymore?

2.) 01 Aug 2018 13:08:48
Think a better gk coach would have been better for him and that's my concern now we need a better coach to keep/ improve alisson's ability's.

3.) 01 Aug 2018 13:31:59
He could also improve by watching and learning from Alisson. For a while he was sat watching Migs lol.

4.) 01 Aug 2018 13:32:12
I feel for Karius and wish him all the very neat in the future. But the result of events is that we have ended up with Alisson as our number 1 which if Ed01’s analysis is correct will be brilliant for us and Klopp’s style.

Alisson is also from a family of goalkeepers (father, older brother, possibly even mother as well if I recall) so this should ‘protect’ him from any suspect coaching we have at the club. He will take the advice of his family and, hopefully, have the ability to think for himself. He also seems very driven to improve. I can’t wait for the first time I get to see him in action with VVD.

5.) 01 Aug 2018 13:54:52
Why what's happened to Karius?

6.) 01 Aug 2018 13:58:30
I think the poor fella has a huge uphill struggle ahead of him in trying to rebuild his career. I do hope we see him succeed somewhere in the future.

7.) 01 Aug 2018 16:11:48
I was all for Karius to continue as the #1, despite the Champions league final debacle. But in all honesty, if there was a player out there that was better than Salah, and LFC wanted him and went out and got him, then I would support the decision completely. Karius got his shot. More than a few actually. And he muffed his opportunity. It happens.

Aside from coming from a family of GKs, Alisson was also coached by Brazil great Claudio Taffarel at Roma. Let's see what Achterberg does with him at LFC 😑.



28 May 2018 21:14:03
It’s official!
Good bit of business.
And no World Cup for him and Keita so full pre season.


1.) 28 May 2018 21:43:40
And no illegal approach! Didn't see that coming, nice surprise after the weekend's disappointment.

Shaqiri to fill the Coutinho hole all day. He’s looking like more and note of a bargain every time he plays.

He's suffered quite a few injuries in the last two years. He broke a bone in his neck two seasons ago and then he dislocated his shoulder last season.
Unfortunately these seem to have stunted his progress.
It's a shame as Robertson, TAA and Gomez have shown that Klopp has trust in youth and with TAA and Gomez will promote from within if he thinks they're good enough.


{Ed002's Note - TAA yes, Roberton was not first choice for the club and Gomez is only playing as cover. The clubs plan right nopw is to buy the Premier League at all cost - and the debt has been increasing again at an alarming rate in order for them to do that.}

It was Klopp.
Buvac has felt increasingly under-minded by him for a couple of years. He finally couldn't take it anymore.

As silly as paying 50m for someone who might be unable to play to a standard we want for a long amount of time?
This is why they have medicals.
If Fekir isn’t deemed fit enough for the investment then we’ll move on to another target.
People need to calm down.

I agree. He was taken off after 60 mins on Wednesday after arguably a man of the match performance. He should have been rewarded with starting today. And what a difference he made when he came on! He could absolutely fill the Coutinho hole. He’s strong, direct and quick. Lallana is just too slow. He won’t lose the ball but he’ll do at least one Cruyff turn every time it comes to him. I feel sorry for him as injuries have really hampered his time here. And now with Fabinho, Keita, Milner, Wijnaldum, Shaqiri and Henderson, he’s 7th choice. And that’s not including the Ox. I’d be surprised if he stays much longer at the vlib.
