Are Liverpool trying to sign / still hold interest in Bruno Fernandes?

Some sites are saying he is close to signing for United, and others say Liverpool FC are close to the signing.


1.) 10 Jun 2019 11:19:56
Spurs are interested, especially if Eriksen leaves. They also have interest in Lo Celso. I don’t know if they want both. This has been on this site.
Any other information I’ve read is conflicting, I agree. No two sources are saying the same thing.
Type ‘Chiesa’ into the search bar to see Ed002’s comments on him.

2.) 10 Jun 2019 12:59:17
Echo have literally just put out that were set to sign 💪🏼.

3.) 10 Jun 2019 13:04:30
We hold interest as Ed has stated previously but we don’t know anything more.

We are keen to bring someone into that role.

4.) 10 Jun 2019 13:23:20
Markp08, yes interested but no approach to his club. Manchester bound very likely if not about done already.

5.) 10 Jun 2019 14:10:49
I can't see why United would be an appealing option for him other than money reasons. Attacking based midfielders, kagawa, depay, mhychatarian, di Maria, Sanchez, pogba, mata have seen their careers damaged or slowed down lately, United are currently a fresh rebuild which doesn't even seem ready to start yet, with a manager who already seems out of his depth with no champions league football. If he would choose United in this current moment over other teams it would show him as a player and person I wouldn't want anyway. He seems like a hard working commited player on the field but maybe his career ambition doesn't reflect that. I'd be amazed if any top player chose United and ole over spurs and Liverpool, poch and klopp for any sort of footballing reasons. Of course I'm presuming United aren't his only option.

6.) 10 Jun 2019 14:23:38
I get what your saying Har and I agree mate. However it seems he is swaying towards the Red half of Manchester. It will be financial reasons.

7.) 10 Jun 2019 15:37:48
Is there genuine truth to that virgil? Shocking decision the lad has made if the case. Makes no sense, a team very far away from playing a style to suit him unless ole drastically brings a complete different approach. He'd suit Liverpool city spurs or Chelsea far more.

8.) 10 Jun 2019 16:25:53
Tbh Har_red92 I’m not a so called ITK mate lol by any stretch. Just from what I can gather from here and the Itd pages and talking to others it certainly seems to be that he is heading to Utd. The very fact we’ve not even spoke to his club whilst others have says a lot. Also the cost of the guy up in the 70-80M area with us not looking to spend that amount. Will see I guess but my money would be on Utd.

9.) 10 Jun 2019 17:17:43
Yeah I always thought a 50 mil offer or roughly that ball park is what sporting would actually accept. They're not financially great and he's their only major money asset. Unless multiple teams are offering at once I couldn't see 80mil being the lowest Lisbon would accept. I get that we probably aren't fussed with that kind of fee I was just hopeful we might splurge the kind of money that was nearly spent on fekir last year. I think he'd fit us nicely, probably the best no.10 available this summer and a club with little financial strength to refuse decent bids.

10.) 10 Jun 2019 17:43:17
Agree entirely mate. I think he is the best option available and Klopp would work wonders inter grating him into the team, but doesn’t look likely. We also have Kieta and Ox who will need game time.

11.) 10 Jun 2019 18:40:30
Yeah I agree bud, for that type of money you would want to be expecting a weakness being vastly improved instead of hoping to just add to an already strong midfield. Many people still think a 10 is needed but I'm not so sure. Klopp looked to try and implement 4231 last year, I feel that was why a fekir type was wanted. I feel he's learned 433 suits us much better and a midfielder might actually be of zero importance anymore.

12.) 10 Jun 2019 21:54:46
Like he fabinho signing out of knowere, i would not be surprised that i wake up to see him signed for us, if klopp wants him. If he doesn't then I respect Klopp's plans as he knows far more about football than any of us.

{Ed025's Note - speak for yourself jammin.. :)

13.) 10 Jun 2019 22:02:38
Ed025, edit: a manager at the highest level knows a hell of a lot more than me. But would also question anyone that thinks they know more about football than one of the best managers of our time.

{Ed025's Note - its subjective jammin, and tongue in cheek at times mate..

14.) 10 Jun 2019 23:07:42
I love a deal out of nowhere. I remember kewell at the time hitting my complete surprise when I first heard. So excited for that deal, what a let down haha. And Andy Carroll out of nowhere too. Another terrible let down. Raul meireles too happened fast with no previous links.

15.) 10 Jun 2019 23:45:06
Virg if he is our top target for AM we better get a move on.

16.) 10 Jun 2019 23:49:38
We don't have any big areas of weakness anymore Har. So now we need to try and turn good or very good players to great. I still think the midfield could do with one really top addition.

17.) 10 Jun 2019 23:53:31
Yes Man Utd have been playing crap football recently but I don't think we can say that Fernandes going there would be for the money. Its possible that he is buying into the plan that Ole has (if Woodward allows him to have one) . Im going to wait and see what sort of footy they try to play next year.

18.) 11 Jun 2019 01:51:37
Possibly. I just think at this moment in time if he had options of where to move, United are the furthest behind in football attraction. No champions league and a group of players that need overhaul aplenty.

19.) 11 Jun 2019 02:48:32
Yeah mark but I think if we were to bring in a high quality midfielder, only one of OX, keita, gini, Milner, henderson could play the 8 role if fabinho in the 6. Asides from Milner, as we need his versatility. I could not choose between 1 of those to move on, we have no reason to replace any, and we can't keep them all, OX and keita offered no contribution last year. It's essentially like we have already gained 2 new players with fresh starts.

20.) 10 Jun 2019 23:19:52
Ed025 you clearly are not on here enough for people to get that scouse sense of humour mate. What are you doing with your time? Actually don't answer that, there are some things in life you just don't want to know.

{Ed025's Note - people tend to get too serious at times burkey, life is too short for seriousness all the time so im here to lighten the mood mate, hell im an evertonian for gods sake and spend most of my time crying so i come on here for respite and a way to vent my frustration, most people get me and some dont and they are the ones that make it all worthwhile.. :)

21.) 10 Jun 2019 23:21:51
I only saw your smile emoji after i replied ed025 . I'm a bit emoji unaware. Old age.

{Ed025's Note - no problem jammin mate, im old as well but still very attractive to women so it does,nt bother me so much.. :)

22.) 11 Jun 2019 07:45:00
Haha, I love Ed025's sharp snarky wit, it warms my cockles on those cold footballess nights. If ya ever need a hug or a shoulder to cry on (like when Richarlison leaves next month) I'm here for ya mate.

{Ed025's Note - thats nice to know JM,...although i would prefer it to be carol kirkwood of course mate.. :)

23.) 11 Jun 2019 08:21:37
Jaysus Ed025, that's a bit harsh. You just ain't seen me in hot-pants yet.

{Ed025's Note - even just reading that puts me in a cold sweat JM.. :)

24.) 11 Jun 2019 09:11:22
Markp08 I meant he is possibly our best option mate but not our top target I don’t think. Like I say I think he is Utd bound mate unfortunately.

25.) 11 Jun 2019 10:35:54
Ed025 is a double for George Clooney or is that George Formby🤔.

{Ed025's Note - its definitely clooney barry...unless im cleaning windows mate.. :)

26.) 11 Jun 2019 11:57:01
Or leaning on a lamppost Ed😁.

{Ed025's Note - very much so barry.. :)



28 Jan 2019 23:19:02
Looks like VVD, TAA and Gomez will all be missing on Wednesday.

We don't have much pace to deal with Vardy. Looks like we will have to defend deeper, no other option.

Just Pray VVD can get off his sick bed.


1.) 29 Jan 2019 01:56:05
guess we will have to go back to the old style of "score one more than the opposition"

2.) 29 Jan 2019 06:29:35
Nooooo. Virgil has to be ok surely, I’ve had a cold and cough last week or so but I’ve still gone to work lol.

3.) 29 Jan 2019 06:37:09
I must admit I'm quite concerned about this game going on that news, fingers crossed we can get the three points but I'm not very confident about this one.

4.) 29 Jan 2019 07:26:39
It’s going to snow in he midlands this week, maybe Vardy and Gray will simultaneously slip and twist an ankle. looks left and right)

5.) 29 Jan 2019 07:42:13
Salah, I share the same worries and thoughts mate. Could well be a struggle especially if Virgil is out. Don’t like the thought of Vardy, Gray and co running at Matip and Camacho. Are well it is what it is I guess and we will find out soon enough we’re we are at.

6.) 29 Jan 2019 07:53:34
We beat Leicester at their place earlier in the season, I have no doubt we'll see the off again tomorrow. May be a bit scrappy but I'm confident 👍.

7.) 29 Jan 2019 07:54:27
Bloody hell lads - what's going on? We have just had 11 days off, and we are playing at Anfield under the lights. Our defence and midfield will be similar to theirs but our front 3 will cause them all sorts of problems.

The team will need the support more than ever on Wednesday, stay positive. It won't all be plain sailing in winning the league.

No more negative posts.

8.) 29 Jan 2019 07:51:19
This is why our manager's use to say no one man is bigger than the club. We all start panicking because VVD is out, we just need to support the other £300M+ worth of talent we put out on the pitch.
Here's a stat to give you hope. Leicester have been beaten in the Premier league 9 times with teams that didn't contain VVD, TAA or any of our regular back line.

11.) 29 Jan 2019 09:09:45
I’m no expert but I’d reckon they are more worried about our attack than we need to be about theirs.
It’ll be very difficult for them to attack at all when we smother them and bag 3 in the first half!

12.) 29 Jan 2019 10:45:56
For goodness sake, we are Liverpool, we are top of the Premier League, we are playing at home, it’s Leicester not Barcelona, they have lost 9 out of 23 Premier League games, we have got 29 points more then them - and they have got Wes Morgan and Harry Maguire in central
defence! Get a grip lads and have some faith in our manager and his squad.

13.) 29 Jan 2019 11:26:20
Have you been hanging around Walter salah? This is the first time I've seen a negative comment from you. ;)

14.) 29 Jan 2019 11:28:18
Van dijk will play unless he's still got the runs until 20 minutes before the game. He's made of stronger stuff and knows how important he is to us. I have no doubt he will play.

{Ed025's Note - gastroenteritis is a bad bug nun, if he plays i hope he does,nt lovren himself.. :)

15.) 29 Jan 2019 11:44:59
Surely you could lend him a couple of your immodiums ed25? 😉.

{Ed025's Note - either that or a pair of my lycra shorts KK.. :)

16.) 29 Jan 2019 12:49:44
If VVD sharted early in the game then that would prompt the Leicester players from getting too close - perfect solution for me.

17.) 29 Jan 2019 12:52:14
I'm confident of a 3-0 victory.

18.) 29 Jan 2019 13:28:08
I’ve seen us beat Leicester loads of times before we signed VVD and before we were anywhere near as good as we are now.
Why is everyone panicking so much?

19.) 29 Jan 2019 15:41:18
Alisson, Milner, Matip, Lovren, Robertson are enough against Leicester City.

20.) 29 Jan 2019 15:59:10
Uh no Milner maybe Camacho.

21.) 29 Jan 2019 17:34:43
Wow, a couple of injuries and this site suddenly turns in an episode of Dad's Army. Don't panic, don't panic!

22.) 29 Jan 2019 17:37:54
and I get told all season to be realistic? hypocrites.

23.) 29 Jan 2019 17:38:36
Klippertys klopp, hahaha about right mate lol.

24.) 29 Jan 2019 20:10:13
This is my worst fear. in the space of a week we will be behind city playing catch up. the league is finally lost even earlier than I expected.
Was good whilst it lasted.

25.) 29 Jan 2019 22:17:24
And suddenly its a chance to go 7 clear :)

10 Jun 2019 23:48:27
Fabinho - slow start. Had some poor games before Christmas and wasn't worth his place. He grew into the role though and is now our first choice holding midfielder. I expect him to kick on next season and play a key role. 6.5/ 10

Keita - there were flashes of ability at the beginning but he also found it difficult to adapt to the prem. His best games were just before his injury. He started to score and assist and I still hold high hopes. Our most talented midfielder but he needs to improve on and off the pitch. 5.5

Allison - made a huge difference to the side. Adapted quickly and gave others confidence. Hit a slight dip but brilliant when it counted at the business end of the season. Will be even better next year. 8.5

Shaq - decent overall, happy with his commitment and attitude. Got injured when we needed him so didn't play as often as he might of. Scored some important goals and won us some points. Would rather he stayed than Lallana. 6.


1.) 11 Jun 2019 00:23:09
6.5 Fabinho? Considering he was a new signing, I’d give him an 8 minimum. First choice midfielder for me, none of the others offer what he does. At the end of the season, klopp picked him for every big game and we won them.

2.) 11 Jun 2019 01:08:34
I think fabinho is deserved of more than only 1 mark more than keita. I didn't think he was poor before Xmas. We won every game in December and I thought that was the month he really settled in. Bossed United and lovely assist, got his first goal that month too and big wins over Everton United and arsenal along with champions league business being taken care of. He was left out of the city game in New year and we didn't have any control til he was subbed on. He's been excellent since, even keeping clean sheets in the CB role when needed. For me is at least an 8/ 10.

3.) 11 Jun 2019 06:02:23
Lmao. Fabinho becomes the first midfielder on the team sheet, is part of a 97 point team and wins the champions league.

4.) 11 Jun 2019 08:28:37
6.5 I'd say is fair going on the season overall, he had a slow start that's why. If he'd of played the majority of the season he'd of had an 8 or so but he didn't.

5.) 11 Jun 2019 10:15:53
I keep seeing these comments putting Fab in the Ok to Good bracket, I just don't get the marking down of what was clearly a huge amount of development and confidence building that resulted in him being the best midfielder in our squad.

If he stays at the same level and God forbid he improves he is one of the first names on the sheet and crucial in the spine of the team. We couldn't afford to buy a better in his position and I struggle to think of anyone who could walk into his role in this league and be that much better. All the hype was over Naby but Fab came in quietly, worked hard, got his head around the tactics and league and its paid off big time.

6.) 11 Jun 2019 10:28:20
6.5 Fabinho? Someone is drunk.

7.) 11 Jun 2019 12:30:53
There is NOTHING "ok or just good" about Fab. He is the exact player we all knew he was. Him having a slow start and using that to downplay his ability, is a misnomer and IMO, dishonest.

Near EVERY player that Klopp has signed always takes time to adapt to our style. See Ox, Robbo, Gini, Salah etc. Even Naby falls into that category and he started to show his immense talent until a dreadful tackle injured him. You cannot use that as a yardstick to judge him or any other player. I mean, Ilkay Gundogan took SIX months to adapt to Dortmund's way of playing under Klopp. Reportedly it was so bad that he had to go up in the stands to sit and study how Dortmund play.

Fab is a BOSS DM and we all knew it from his time at Monaco hence, it is only normal that he needs time to adapt to a new league, a new country and a change of pace in terms of tempo and physical impact, league-wise. Fab is brilliant and ALWAYS has been. He only needed time to adapt.

8.) 11 Jun 2019 12:46:08
wow not sure about them marks
Allison 9.5 first season not seen to many goalkeepers come to a new country and play so well golden gloves.

Fabinho 8 took his time getting into the team, to get use to how we played but once that was sorted first choice midfielder.

Shaq 6 good start to the season then sort of died off a bit. But for the money we paid in this day and age did ok for us.

Keita 5 for the money and hype no where near what we was expecting. He did pick up to wards the end of the season but a bit late for a bigger mark. But my be next season we will see the best of him.

9.) 11 Jun 2019 12:48:35
The same fab that had messi in his pocket in a game that was instrumental to us winning no.6 not to mention him stepping in at centre back when we were decimated by injury with outstanding performances and his stellar improvement that virtually made him undroppable. No it's a solid 8.5 from me.

Keita gets a 0.5 uplift for his solo dance clutching his medal in the dressing room after the champs league final. classic😂.

10.) 12 Jun 2019 00:49:41
It is a mark for the FULL season. If Fabs gets an 8 now that means if he plays a full season next year at the second half level he will have to get a 10.

This season first half 4.5
second half 8
so 6.5 overall.



24 May 2019 18:07:47
This might be a bit trivial but I don't get why we have chosen to stay in a resort with 30 degree heat every day. Not to mention the sun for over 12 hours a day. You just can't escape it. What time are they training? It is 22 degrees at 10am and 10pm.

We have all been caught out with sunburn, sunstroke etc. Telling 30 grown men "have you put enough cream on, what factor". Put your hat on etc.

Why couldn't they go to France Portugal or a different part of Spain?

It will also be 3 weeks with no game and have always thought that is far too long. We def need a friendly match before, can't believe it wasn't organised before.


1.) 24 May 2019 18:31:00
God it must be hell. Who would want to be a footballer such a hard life!

2.) 24 May 2019 18:56:53
It’s warm weather training. Harder work for the muscles, and increases fitness. Strange thing is, for warm weather training, you need warm weather. Going somewhere cold is a bit counterproductive.

3.) 24 May 2019 18:59:42
A friendly was/ is trying to be organised for the weekend but it's proving to be difficult with so many players on holiday. I saw this the other day so don't know if it's happening or not. I agree though, it should've been arranged ages ago.

4.) 24 May 2019 19:05:40
It is not about them enjoying themselves, they are there to prepare for the biggest game of their lives. A game they can't afford to lose. They should have gone somewhere else.

5.) 24 May 2019 20:00:20
Hmm warm, like Madrid maybe? Awful idea! Plus if its better to train in uncomfortable conditions, as then when you play in better conditions your body reacts better.

6.) 24 May 2019 20:02:13
Mark, the game will be played in Spain in Madrid where the temperatures will be almost similar so in some way, it is a way for them to get a lot of work done w/ o distractions from the media as well as relax their bodies in a high class hotel where the facilities for physical regeneration are top class. What's wrong with that?

Besides, Klopp does this all the time so not sure why you are suddenly surprised by it. You say they should have gone somewhere else. Well, do enlighten us as to where you propose they should have gone to instead esp. since the players and manager are used to already coming to this specific location hence, knowing what to expect in terms of conditions and surroundings?

7.) 24 May 2019 23:35:42
The best marathoners all train at altitude because the air is thinner, so the body works harder with lesser amount of oxygen, and training is more effective in preparing for the marathons (mostly at or near sea level) . Here, LFC players are simply training at the same temperature and climatic conditions of the day of the Final. Why change it if this option is available?

But you're right. It's a trivial point.

8.) 25 May 2019 10:28:15
Try telling that to Andy Robbo he is burnt to F. Madrid is no where near as hot. Should have gone to Portugal or a different part of Spain. Are you saying Red Wolf there are no other quality resorts in Spain, Portugal France.

I agree with going away just not to the hottest part of Spain for 2 weeks.

9.) 25 May 2019 10:47:20
Actually Ar Ay, whilst athletes do use altitude and temperature chambers, the motto has increasingly been to live high and train low, ie allow your body to make adaptations at altitude in general life, but come back down to sea level so that you can train harder and then head back up.

10.) 25 May 2019 12:51:29
Why should they have gone somewhere else? The temperatures there are in the high 20's, apparently the temperature for the final is forecast to be. in the high 20's.

11.) 25 May 2019 20:50:05
Mark, you are the one moaning that they should have gone somewhere else so the burden is on you to enlighten us on where you think they should have gone, NOT the other way around.

As for proposing Portugal, France or other parts of Spain, parts of Portugal are just as hot if not hotter than Costa Del Sol, which is where Marbella is cos I have been there. France (again, I have lived in France for about 5 years) is only hot starting around June when it comes to the south of France. Frankly, it just seems like you are moaning over absolutely nothing. I know you may be frustrated cos it is taking too long for the game to come BUT chill out, man. All will be fine. I just hope you are not looking for stuff to use as ammunition to slam the team and Klopp with should we fall short in the final. cheers, mate.



10 May 2019 22:12:57
If the impossible happens would there be a parade on Monday?


1.) 10 May 2019 22:45:54
The club have released the dates for the parades if any where to happen. At least that's what me ma said. I'm sure the official site will have this information. I think she read it in the echo.

2.) 10 May 2019 23:05:48
Read it now mate thanks. 2 potential parades the day after each match.

Benny are you posting tonight?


1.) 08 May 2019 12:16:37
In benny's defence markp08, you were saying klopp should stand down after the 3 0 loss at Barcelona mate.



07 May 2019 23:00:51
Like ed0333 I booked a hotel in the city for the league parade. Just now booked in the city for the cl final. Prices going up by the minute.

Hope I will need both but one will see me just fine.


{Ed0333's Note - I’ll be in Liverpool on Sunday hoping my people can arrange a ticket for the game. If not I’ll be watching in a pub in Anfield somewhere. Luckily I have a friend in Madrid who can put me up for the final as a Hotel room will cost more than a lock of Jesus’ hair. Lord knows how I’m gonna get a ticket for the final?

1.) 07 May 2019 23:22:02
League parade will be 2nd June after the champions league final now😁👍.

2.) 07 May 2019 23:49:47
yea you might be right.

Rob Jones I loved that guy had his T shirt.

3.) 09 May 2019 22:01:37
Thank god i live in italy. 1/6 tickets from italy to madrid €25 each way. try adding a stopover and come and have a night out with me before madrid.

As well as JG, AOC, Fabs and Keita will both improve next season. I can also see Trent being even better and Firmino will have a better season. There is much growth and improvement from within. Just 2 senior players needed.

This is totally different Long. The current side has some top class players and just as important many leaders in this team. Just look at the back 5 without a doubt the best in the world and still going to get better.

Midfield - if Klopp thinks he can keep more players fit this year, why should he be buying someone. When Milner started last season at full power he was our best player. Hendo was our best player at the end of the season. Klopp will try to keep the midfield fresh and when they play the full intense game no one can match the team.

Fabs, Milner, Hendo, Gini, Keita, Ox, that is 2 midfields even without Lallana.

Mane will maintain last seasons level, I think Salah will get 25 league goals and Firmino will be better than last season. Brewster will be a top player, he just needs full fitness and game time. Then there Origi the big match goal scorer.

We just need Ox and or Keita to bring their best. A left back and we will have a better side than last year.

Just my opinion but Kent and Wilson are a long long way off the standard required for this current LFC squad. Kent I don't think is a premier league player.

Mane has to be number 1. Without him the rest wouldn't have followed. He changed the team almost on his own 3-4 years ago.

i agree Mane is the main man. But who can we buy to replace 34 and 22 goals with hardly any penalties? It is a almost impossible to bring in a player who would get anywhere near those numbers.

Lets say Pepe I reckon he wouldn't get 10.

Can we look at the full list to see who is at the bottom. I heard Gomez was second.
