Mignolet can say what he wants, Klopp has given him more than enough enough chances prove he is worthy of the no 1 spot.

There can be no sentiment. Mignolet is not good enough and is time for someone else to get a chance to face the firing line.

Klopp's biggest problem is that he is going to struggle to move Mignolet on.

maxlfc

I don't think he will struggle, still a seasoned PL goalkeeper yes he's not good enough for us but probably good enough to play for anyone outside of the top six teams etc, there is always a need and someone will buy him, let's hope wages are not excessive for the so called "smaller clubs"


2.) 16 Jan 2018 16:25:53
That is exactly the problem. Mignolet is on a very lucrative contract and most clubs will snub him because of that.

So it will either be Liverpool who takes the knock or Mignolet becoming desperate and makes some tough decisions.

He might do well in the Serie A? Many GK's do.


3.) 16 Jan 2018 16:52:47
We might subsidise his wages to allow him leave though my thoughts echo the sentiments of the others in this site. Bit disappointing that he's not staying on to fight for his place. Make no mistake, I'm happier with him no longer playing as no 1 but he's competition for karius and likely to keep him on his toes. Not to mention the possibility of him helping out as the season goes on. Remember towards the end of last year he got his game in order.


4.) 16 Jan 2018 18:52:58
Migs is on 60k a week last I checked so not out of the question for a prem team!


5.) 16 Jan 2018 20:15:07
If you think about it he has international, ECL, EPL and Europa league experience and has played for a top 4 finishing side and is at the prime age for a keeper. He will appeal to clubs. And 60k isn’t huge if that is correct. Not sure why people would be disappointed he isn’t wanting to stay and fight for place, general opinion is he isn’t good enough why would people want to use a slot to keep him?


6.) 16 Jan 2018 21:22:04
I think we be better with Karius and Ward for the rest of the season. May help appease Ward a bit for the messing around he’s had this season. If we can sell Mignolet I say let him go, Klopp has gave him many chances and he’s has not learnt I have no confidence with him in goal.


7.) 16 Jan 2018 21:41:04
At least with karius, he has time to improve and have potential to develop himself. Mignolet who is 30 years old and had 4 years in this club has shown he will not reach in the standards for liverpool to strive to win trophies. His level would be ideal for a midtable club.


8.) 16 Jan 2018 21:51:54
Thing is I don’t recall Mignolet pulling up trees as Sunderland in the first place. Was he best of what we could get then?


9.) 17 Jan 2018 07:20:34
Milan keeper for 39 mil plus migs and bogdan 😂😂🤣 great deal that.


10.) 17 Jan 2018 09:01:51
I honestly struggle to imagine a club discussing their needs and being like 'hmmm we need a goalkeeper, a good shot stopper who can make our defence more solid, who could be possibly available? A-ha! Simon Mignolet! He'll solve our goalkeeping issue'. Seriously with the performances he has delivered what team is going to move for him? I mean is he honestly an upgrade for many of the mid-table clubs being suggested? I seriously doubt it.


11.) 17 Jan 2018 11:00:30
Mignolet was very average at Sunderland at best. Couldn't understand why we blew so much on him. We need to get the next one right. Alisson Becker or Jan Oblak would make an immediate difference.


12.) 17 Jan 2018 12:10:24
Fresst i think i remember he was sunderlands player of the season in the 2012/ 2013 season he looked pretty good that year probably due to them been terrible high volume shots taken against them so his highlight reel might have looked ok well vito mannone was player of the season for them to lol.

It is quite clear that only an obscene amount will bring Keita to Liverpool.

Unless Keita decides to 'piss' on his current club then nothing is going to happen.

maxlfc

1.) 08 Jul 2017 02:25:36
Or He could just put in for a transfer and say he'd be unhappy to stay.


2.) 08 Jul 2017 07:18:07
Ralf Ragnick (RBL's Sporting Direct) has said that not even a 100m bid will make them sell Keita. I don't know what other hint that LFC and some on here need. Move on, pls.


3.) 08 Jul 2017 07:22:35
Yes but the CEO has said that he would not stand in Keitas way if he wanted to leave. This happens every transfer window, it's part of the song and dance. If people want to have faith that he's coming (I'm one of them) then fair play. If he doesn't come he doesn't come but I'm not getting in a negative mind state about it yet. I believe he will come.


4.) 08 Jul 2017 08:36:03
It was the same with Mane to Southampton. They also had a not for sale stance but in the end it was Mane who pulled the plug and forced the move.

Leipzig do not need money, they want to keep Keita because he is a vital player for them. The problem for Keita is that if he burns bridges with Leipzig and Liverpool fail to meet the asking price then Keita ends up losing and Liverpool face another tapping up situation.

Very dangerous game to play for both Keita and Liverpool. This is all going to come down to Keita forcing his way out.


5.) 08 Jul 2017 08:46:58
He is not coming chaps and sounds like if we continue to push then we msy be reported to FIFA on the grounds of more tapping up. I can not beleive our club are still monitoring or what ever it is we are doing, certainly no bid has gone in. Wasting time that could be used chasing other CM's, CB's and LB's.


6.) 08 Jul 2017 08:50:29
I can not believe how bad we are in the transfer market. Between the apology and getting highly inflated prices we are crippled. I know klopp says to be patient but I would of liked players a part of preseason so they better get a move on. We need 3 more players. A good left back. A centre back and a top striker.

We also need to shift sakho, Moreno karius.

It's ok for klopp to say this but he has always been an advocate of early business and getting players settled in preseason so I can not help but feel our current team could be it going into the season.


7.) 08 Jul 2017 09:17:12
Liverpool have mucked it up again with Keita just like they did with VVD.

It has been made known that Keita wants to join Liverpool without Liverpool approaching Leipzig. End game for Liverpool = tapping up.

It will be best for Liverpool to move on from Keita. Obviously the club ain't learning and play with fire, you will get burned.

Why are FSG not putting an end to this matter? They need to show authority as the circus will be on display again at Anfield if this continues. Clear lack of leadership at the club!

It is too late for Liverpool to approach Leipzig now. They should have done it from the start instead of warming up to the player i. e. the same situation as VVD. FIFA will have a field day.


8.) 08 Jul 2017 09:27:29
Stop getting carried away with the tapping up stuff.
Mistakes have been made but the Keita deal is a typical transfer with us wanting the player and willing to pay what is required to secure his services. PSG want Coutinhio doesn't mean they tapping him up by declaring an interest and every player has a price tag these days it's how football is.

Mistakes were made with VVD but if he submits a transfer request then he will leave Southampton.

Everton didn't want to sell lukaku but Chelsea and united both went in with large offers, both bid the same fee but united played the smart move by tipping the agent more.

Keita wants the move so it will happen, no doubt about it.


9.) 08 Jul 2017 09:45:02
Redx what are you talking about? you make me want to bang my head against a wall.

You call this a mistake? no mate a mistake is when you step on somebodys toe, fart when somebodys eating, accidentally pop a kids balloon or send a text to the second misses when it was meant to be the other, not when you tap up a player, how is that a mistake? The club knew exactly what they were doing it's no mistake it's plain and simple stupid! No wonder we're getting carried away with it. Some of us care about the image of Liverpool.

I can't get my head about how some people can defend these actions, it NEVER happened before so why is it ok to do such things now? it's made us look disgraceful. What winds me up either more is comments like ' every club does it' no they dont! - there's a reason why we are the only ones in the news for it.


10.) 08 Jul 2017 09:48:17
Redx, it is laughable that you bring the Lukaku situation into this. Both Chelsea and UTD have made offers for Lukaku. That is the difference. There have been no stories flying about of Lukaku making it known that he wants to join UTD.

Liverpool have not even approached Leipzig yet Keita has spoken to his club about wanting to move to Liverpool.

You clearly do not understand the severity of the situation.


11.) 08 Jul 2017 10:05:22
Stop the daily obsession with Keita it's getting boring!


12.) 08 Jul 2017 10:30:38
I have never seen such an obsession on these pages over such a run of the mill player.

People talk about him like he is a seasoned veteran with 3 CL titles or something. There is absolutely no perspective here. The hype band wagon is fully loaded up with people convinced he is world class.

Maybe he is, or will be. However you only have to look at Leicester for plenty of examples as to why you don't pay big bucks for players after one good season in a mid table team. Chelsea took a £30m risk on Kante which paid off. Yet look at the likes of Kasper, Huth, Morgan, Drinkwater, Mahrez, King, Vardy etc. They were all lauded as top class players. Mahrez was apparently world class and there were talks of £80m bids from Barcelona! The same is currently happening with every Leipzig player. In reality, maybe one or two of their players are actually the meat, and the rest are just bone.

Keita may be the Kante of the team, who knows. But if even Kante was only valued at £30m after a stunning season in the Premier League in which he actually won the title, how is Keita worth double or as some reports suggest, triple that figure after a single season in which he failed to push his team on to the title?

It is clear Keita is a good player. Nobody can say how good though. It is purely speculation, prediction and assumption. He could be a Kante, or he could be a Drinkwater. If the figure was £30m I'd say take the punt. But £70-100m? And some people are trying to justify it? I'm still not buying it.

Then we have the cheek to laugh at United paying mega bucks for Pogba and Lukaku! Oh the irony.

Move on people. There are 1,000s of midfielders in Europe and I'm sure Keita is not the best option. Certainly not at the £100m RBLs chairman just suggested!


13.) 08 Jul 2017 11:41:18
Keita will sign.

Poker need to stop banging on about tapping up. It's is rife in football and other team sports. Part of business I'm afraid. Business isn't all sunshine and rainbows and if you think that it is then the world must be a very rosey place for you to live with your unicorn and pixies.

Even 'legitimate' deals have add ons, agent incentives and gifts. united and Chelsea bid the same figure for lukaku except the agent got a lot more from the united offer. so that's where his client is heading.

We have yet to be punished for any transfer outside our youth system and if it does come it shall be probably as severe as Ashley cole disgrace for Chelsea.

But until then pipe down about it all cos we will be signing Keita. possibly as early as next week. Let's support the lad and the team.

I agree with you MK about the price but this summer most transfers for teams in champions league will be inflated.

{Ed025's Note - tapping up is not "part of business" redx, its cheating and bribery and very wrong so dont try to condone it mate..


14.) 08 Jul 2017 11:50:10
Not condoning it but I'm not naive enough to think it's isolated to lfc.

{Ed002's Note - You are right - it is everybody else's fault. Pitiful.}


15.) 08 Jul 2017 11:59:55
Sorry ed are you saying that only LFC have ever done this or been accused? Liverpool have received no punishment besides the youth. Only prem team I can think of actually being severely punished for it is Chelsea.

Mark my words Keita will sign and no tapping up allegations will be made either so chill out. Boom.

{Ed025's Note - all im saying mate is that you dont want the name of LFC to be tainted any more than it is now and saying that other clubs act in this despicable way does not make it right..


16.) 08 Jul 2017 12:02:22
If it continues we deserve a ban. Maybe getting away with it so frequently hasn't taught us anything?


17.) 08 Jul 2017 12:09:10
Ed025 I agree with you 100% mate but RB have not and will not be making a complaint about Keita pal.

{Ed025's Note - maybe not redx, maybe more luck than judgement but i do agree with you that it should be dropped now as its getting repetitive..i would sooner concentrate on the players your not signing mate.. :)


18.) 08 Jul 2017 12:15:36
Hahah I agree Ed025, we can talk about left backs now!

{Ed002's Note - You need to understand that within European football Liverpool's behavior is worse than any other club. You clearly don't know anything of the Chelsea situation otherwise you would not have made such a stupid remark. You also seem to ignore the fact that a very significant fine was handed out to Everton for tapping up, and indeed that Liverpool are already serving one ban at the moment and have a pending court case that could have further repercussions. The last season the Liverpool were in Europe they faced more charges with UEFA than any other side. On two occasions the owners and the board have had to issue humiliating apologies to try and avoid charges - and one of those has not been withdrawn. Klopp deliberately unsettled players by taking several journalists aside and briefing them in order to deliberately unsettle the four targets he was sure he could sign this summer. Klopp made illegal and direct approaches to three of those players - that is tapping up. The club is not one of the "elite" European sides that meet a couple of times a year and plan the future - they are excluded from that. Certain clubs will not do business with Liverpool because of the way they behave. Liverpool need to sort their act out or they need to accept there are potentially very serious consequences. Right now they are bottom of the pile in European football.}


19.) 08 Jul 2017 12:15:36
Hahah I agree Ed025, we can talk about left backs now!

{Ed025's Note - yeah mate, robertson could be your marquee signing..i hope.. :)


20.) 08 Jul 2017 13:04:49
Hahah ed025 he will arrive I think as cover but who knows he may be the man for the job.


21.) 08 Jul 2017 13:58:37
I just don't know anymore, fans or so called fans are delusional.


22.) 08 Jul 2017 14:01:12
Hi Eds
Why is this kind of under the radar? I know it's done to death on here, but media wise you don't really see anything about tapping up. Obviously the VVD was well reported, but this has been going on for at lot longer. Just interested.

{Ed025's Note - because contrary to what people think on here its not that common mate, tapping up is quite serious and if the press get wind of it they are all over it like a bun on a boloni sandwitch, but most clubs play by the rules as far as im aware janmo..


23.) 08 Jul 2017 14:17:26
Thanks for the swift response. I find it really frustrating that all the hard work we have put in getting back into the champions league, and we could go in under cooked. If you want a player just put a decent bid in. Thanks great site.

{Ed025's Note - no worries mate..


24.) 08 Jul 2017 14:39:36
Teabag why is it delusional to think Keita will be a Liverpool player?

Enough people want to bad mouth Liverpool transfer activity on here yet RB have not and will not be making a complaint and Keita will sign for us.

all parties will be happy with the outcome.

{Ed002's Note - How do you know that they will not make a complaint. They don't wish to sell a player who Liverpool have illegally approached and tapped up. You are an idiot.}


25.) 08 Jul 2017 15:39:54
This is the longest repeat active thread I have seen on here for a while xD

I don’t see why we need to 'tap-up' players. But if we are that desperate and stupid why don’t we do it the smart way like Barca?
By this I mean Neymar has tried to convince Coutinho to join them and spoke to the press about him a lot.
We should get a player to do it then the club can be like "well he really likes him, not our fault" xD.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have already used a player to tap up others on behalf of the club - and not even players he knew. So that is worse.}


26.) 08 Jul 2017 20:21:29
Would be good but costs way too much.


27.) 08 Jul 2017 23:09:28
Every club that Mourinho managed tried to sign Gerrard.

On international duty Lampard and Terry were full time in his ear.

Fergie tried twice to sign him; same crack as above with Scholes and Neville in his ear.

Yap Stam told everyone in his book that Fergie had illegally approached him.
Thats why Fergie offloaded him.

The list could go on and on and not just transfers.

The russians doping scandle.

Look at Platini, Beckenbaur, Quatar The scams at Rangers involving players trusts.

The chairnan at Marseilles i think was jailed .

Even Ed mentioned about a champs league match that was suspicious.

I'd say there are many more as well but football is now big business and companies and clubs will try and do what they can to gain an advantage.

They all are guided by the 11th commandment.


28.) 09 Jul 2017 16:24:11
Thanks for the reply ed002 I didn’t even realize that xD
Seriously how stupid are we? If you are going to tap players up with other players, DO IT RIGHT (or just not at all) ridiculous how stupid we are with transfers

I get that the whole of football is corrupt but most teams/ managers/ players stop and stay low once in the limelight, yet we just carry on doing it like nothing bad will happen -. -.


29.) 10 Jul 2017 11:25:28
I might be miss remembering this but didn't the FA .................

{Ed002's Note - IT IS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FA. MOVE ON.}


 

 

24 Jun 2017 10:42:38
Ed002, any interest from Liverpool for Gaetan Laborde?

maxlfc

{Ed002's Note - I don't know of Liverpool interest in Gaetan Laborde. He is seen as a very average striker in France and there is a different Bordeaux player that Liverool has been keen on. Laborde is far from a regular goalscorer.}


1.) 24 Jun 2017 11:02:18
Is that Malcolm? Do we look like making an offer?

{Ed002's Note - Malcom - there has been a lot of interest from Liverpool.}


2.) 24 Jun 2017 11:03:13
Malcolm I assume Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Malcom.}


3.) 24 Jun 2017 11:04:19
Thanks Ed002.


4.) 24 Jun 2017 11:11:59
"Course you can Malcom! "
See how many oldies remember that line.

{Ed001's Note - I am obviously too young.....}


5.) 24 Jun 2017 12:18:58
Sadly I do . Vicks sinex.


6.) 24 Jun 2017 12:39:28
My dad still says it now! Im sure he would have preferred me to be called Malcolm.


7.) 24 Jun 2017 13:10:44
I don't know much about Malcom, but was he another alternative to the left winger? If so, the interest in this window must surely be gone now with the deal for Salah, am i right?

{Ed002's Note - I wouldn't think that Klopp would keep looking for more players in that position but given he will be playing at least one out of position then maybe. Or maybe he is interested in a striker who struggles for goals?}


8.) 24 Jun 2017 13:13:01
And me too.


9.) 24 Jun 2017 13:40:03
Malcom as left back. LOL.


10.) 24 Jun 2017 19:45:24
Gaetan Laborde? Sounds like the name of a drag act!
I still believe that Bobby Firmino will remain as our preferred striking option, with Sturridge and Solanke as back up/ cup players. I don't think Klopp really needs much more up front, he just needs to sort out the defence.


 

 

07 Jun 2017 17:38:08
Ed002, know of anything about the rumour of Sturridge being offered to Newcastle?

maxlfc

{Ed002's Note - I don't but Newcastle have already reached agreement to take a striker on loan.}


1.) 07 Jun 2017 17:52:38
Th Young st from Chelsea I'm I right.

{Ed002's Note - Abraham.}


 

 

05 Jun 2017 18:09:57
This could be the season where Liverpool smash the budget into pieces to once and for all get back to the top.

Scary stuff but if that is what the club is planning on doing then us fans will just go with the flow.

I just wonder who the club tends on seeing going as the figures we are about to spend will have to see more than one current players on their way. Let's hope it ain't Coutinho.

maxlfc

1.) 05 Jun 2017 18:40:22
I'm not concerned with the earlier fees at all as the game has somewhat changed, not just for us but the Premier League. The influx of TV money in the premier league, on top of the additional revenue we will provided by the Champions League (if we qualify) has me fairly chill about this issue. Don't think the club would also sign a CB and LW to cope with the departure of PC and we've been surprisingly quiet this summer with regards to 'Number 10' rumours.


2.) 05 Jun 2017 18:50:22
Likely to be: Sakho, Lucas, Stewart, Markovich, Moreno.

Personally also wouldn't be overly surprised by any one (s) of: Sturridge, Ojo, Ward, Ings, Klavan, Gomez, Milner, Coutinho (😩)


3.) 05 Jun 2017 19:09:23
Say with the likely there puzzled would raise £50 million to pay VVDs fee and the saving of wages. I'd like to see Ward, Gomez and Ings loaned out for fitness and experience. I'd like Sturridge and Couts stay. I do like Milner and he should stay as a good squad player but I think he will want 1st team action so may leave.


4.) 05 Jun 2017 19:10:46
I do not believe many understand how club finaces work. We earned massively the previous seasons from TV revenue and still Liverpool ended up making a significant loss in the last financials.

The new training facility will have to see Liverpool making up the numbers financially elsewhere. Increasing the wage bill considerably with the arrivals of VVD and Salah will punish the club.

You do understand that the wage bill makes up majority of Liverpool's spend each season? Therefore adding over £300k a week to our current wage bill 3rd highest in the League will have to see some of the current crop leave.

Transfer fees not the main issue as they get paid over a period, not in one go.

Lallana, Firmino, Mane and Gini can all play number ten. Even Salah.


5.) 05 Jun 2017 18:55:10
lucas
Gomez loan
Sakho
Origi maybe in January
Clyne
Wilson loan
Stewart
Markovic
Moreno

Should be around £100m. So if all goes to plan we might still get a left back and one other. Happy days.


6.) 05 Jun 2017 19:30:41
Mark, it does not matter what we will be selling players for. The transfer fees we receive will not be paid in one go to us. We are probably some way off before Bournemouth finish paying for Ibe. Just like Suarez was only paid up by Barcelona this past season.

Our wage bill though is something which sees the club accounts with an exit of funds every week. Add VVD and Salah to the current bill, you can be rest assured that there will have to be quite a few exits in the summer, especially if we are planning on adding more players.

18 Feb 2018 09:39:09
The way I see this coming summer window

Replacement for Can
Replacement for Mignolet
Definitely a CB
Definitely another forward
Possibly a right back

Keita is already done. Room will need to be made in the squad. Clyne most likely on his way and whether we are going to see Lallana or Milner sticking around is also another thing to ponder about.

Then there is also Gomez, will Klopp keep him or go on loan/ permanent move?

Please keep Trent though, this kid is going places!

maxlfc

1.) 18 Feb 2018 09:52:01
I can't see us getting rid of Gomez in any way shape or form.

I'd rather us get a RB in instead of a CB, Gomez can go to the middle, TAA can move upto midfield and be cover for RB if needed. I'm not bothered about getting another forward I'd rather us get a solid CM to partner Keita. Hopefully Migs is out and we get a solid replacement.


2.) 18 Feb 2018 09:54:40
Why the question mark around Gomez?
The kid has done brilliantly, whilst being played out of position.
Another season or 2 at right back and back up centre back should suit him fine.
Personally, I like him at right back, making a back 3 when Robertson gets forward. It’s giving him experience.


3.) 18 Feb 2018 10:16:46
Gomez is probably in the top 3 defenders at the club, and the best U21 we've had for as long as i can remember. The only question is whether he plays right back or centre back.


4.) 18 Feb 2018 10:30:22
RB - Yes, Gomez can either move to CB or loan.

CB - I guess Klopp would buy one. No idea what happens to Gomez then

LB - Big yes. Moreno can go. 4 years and pretty much on the same level of Mignolet. Robertson can stay as a back up!

CM- Oh yes. A must needed one

Winger - Yes, The front three won’t survive 60 games and the back ups are no where near to the front three. A top clsss Winger would give us options and balance when one of the front three is out of injury or rest ( Coutinho scored 8 goals and 7 assist ) last season which need to be replaced by a winger. I don’t see our CM scoring a goal!


5.) 18 Feb 2018 10:54:32
For me, we either sign a right back a play Gomez alongside Virgil, or we sign a centre back and keep Gomez at right back. My money is on a centre back to be honest.

I will be genuinely disgusted if we don't get the best out of Gomez though. He clearly has everything needed to be a Liverpool great and play in our back 4 for the next 10-15 years.

On a left back, if we sell Moreno I'd just make Robbo first choice. We have 2 sensational young talents in Tony Gallacher and Adam Lewis who are both 19 next season (same age as TAA) . Lewis is arguably the best player in the academy right now and Gallacher was just signed from a team he was already playing first team football for. Wouldn't surprise me if Moreno stays though. He clearly loves it here, so it just depends how willing he is to fight for his place.

On a midfielder, i think we need a power house like Doucoure, but Klopp seemingly favours Kerem Demirbay or a player of that ilk.

We'll probably also target Thomas Lemar again in my opinion, and Keylor Navas seems to be a big target.

Klopp has never made wholesale changes in any window, so i expect more of the same. Navas, a centre back, Demirbay and Lemar would be a decent window depending on the quality of the centre back!


6.) 18 Feb 2018 10:58:58
I might of mis read but did you say Gomez to leave on loan or permanent transfer?
our most consistent defender this whole season in no way shape or form can leave Liverpool next season or the seasons after that.


7.) 18 Feb 2018 11:17:02
You need to create space in the squad for all these new players.

Lovren recently got a new 5yr deal. He has a good chance of succeeding alongside VVD.
I always say playing CB is about playing as a partnership. Lovren needs time to forge a partnership with VVD before he is binned.
We have Lovren, VVD, Klavan, Matip and Gomez. Gomez is not going anywhere so if we’re after a new CB then it will be to replace either Klavan or Matip.

New signings all depend on who we can sell and who returns from loan. Personally I’d keep Origi if he is happy to be backup. That depends on whether we can sell Sturridge. Who else is leaving other than Emre? Question marks remain over Milner, Lallana, Clyne, Grujic and other loanees.

So in my opinion the positions we can most improve upon are goalkeeper and fullbacks.


8.) 18 Feb 2018 11:45:16
I’d expect Gomez will start getting more game time alongside Virgil. TAA looks like he’s developing quickly so he’ll be able to make RB his own. Perhaps another younger CB could be looked at with one or both of Lovren Matip moving on and Gomez stepping up. You do need 4 good CBs to compete.

I wouldn’t be surprised if a right back came in and that we continue to look at Sessegnon’s rise.

Clearly the priority is replacing Mignolet and solving our central midfield conundrum. Keita is a start but there’s more work to do there to add the balance. Personally I think we need a good mix - an Ndidi/ Torreira destroyer type and a Jorginho/ Dendoncker deep lying playmaker type. (I’ll assume that Milinkovic-Savic, Fabinho, Kroos, Thiago and Rabiot are out of our league) .

In attack i think we’re in good shape with Mane Salah Ox and Woodburn. Origi Ings Studge are likely to move on so we may need to look at a backup for Bobby. Solanke and Brewster will also need good development plans.


9.) 18 Feb 2018 12:01:18
Gomez is more a centre back than right back, did u see how well he performed against Brazil at centre back, an for a man not playing his normal position he has put in some very effective performances for us, he is still a novice like Trent Alexander an they are learning on the job gaining more experience an confidence with every game with us, why would we want too loan or sell him he is too good for us too let go.


10.) 18 Feb 2018 12:44:48
Our front 3 of Mane, Firmino and Salah are fantastic, but our backup options are all solid rather than game-changers. We would do well to get someone like Lemar who can cover the wings and can score goals/ cover set pieces (and also attacking midfield) .

Midfield is a tougher one. Our starting 3 of Hendo, Keita and presumably Lallana is strong, and Gini, Ox and Milner are very solid backups, but we’re lacking a bit of steel there IMO and a regular goal scorer. If we get Lemar that solves the goal scorer option if needed, but I’d love to see Ndidi or someone similar add some defensive steel and give Hendo some cover in the deep role.

In defence I’d like to see Gomez move to CB in place of Matip leaving us with VVD, Klavan at LCB and Lovren, Gomez at RCB. That’s fine if Lovren can eliminate his mistakes IMO, otherwise Gomez gets his chance to step up. LB I can live with Robertson/ Moreno, and RB we should get someone in to replace Clyne and add some senior experience. Ideally someone that can play LB too which would be good if TAA continues to develop into the role and ready to be a first team regular.

GK I think we should go for someone like Alisson. Spend what it takes IMO. If not available then give Karius and Ward the chance at no.1 and 2 and get an older experience GK the no.3 position.


11.) 18 Feb 2018 13:07:06
I should imagine quite a few of the squad players are playing for their futures from now until the end of the season. Some of them won't actually get many minutes to prove it either. As much as I like Ings, Solanke and Origi they are just not prolific enough. Our back up to the front 3 is not going to dislodge them and has to make the most of the minutes they get. We need someone in the mould of a Solkjaer or Hernandez who will 9 times out of 10 score when coming off the bench regardless of how many minutes they are getting.

{Ed002's Note - How many games have Ings and Solanke played in order to show they are not prolific enough? Liverpool haven't even got to a tribunal to be given a fee for the player because they are yet again dragging their heels. I suggest the standard Liverpool fan approach and to vandalise the stadium with abuse about the players - hate campaigns on Facebook.}


12.) 18 Feb 2018 13:13:25
I’d be shocked if Hendo is our first choice no6 next season, club captain or not. His body is failing him and that position is absolutely vital in a 433. We need to de-risk that position.

I’ll extend that concern to Lallana too. He’s been injured for at least half of his LFC career.

Time to improve the reliability and robustness of the squad.


13.) 18 Feb 2018 13:30:14
For me I’d love both Brandt and Lemar for midfield, but both still versatile enough to cover other positions.

Goalkeeper situation is if Karius does well why drop him, he seems to be getting better by the game for me. If he does do well and Klopp sees him as number one what kind of number would there be sign that would sit on the bench? We have Ward who could push Karius on further. Mignolet is a must to leave though.

Defence again is one that’s reliant on the rest of the season. Both Gomez and Arnold have done really well, both have shown their inexperience at times and both have cost us goals due to this, but they will both learn. Gomez does have the potential to be a great centre back but too soon could be too much. For me leave both at right back for another season. Lovren could also form a great partnership with Van Dijk and therefore I couldn’t see the club selling.

Left back for me we have done great in signing Robertson, but I would love us to sign Sessenogn of Fulham for left. I doubt it will happen but I do like the kid.


14.) 18 Feb 2018 13:57:33
I don't know why you have to be so crotchety Ed002. Jayden23 makes a fair point. Origi has been given loads of minutes in the past - not happening. Solanke has come off the bench a fair few times this season. I would never have signed him and he's been given more minutes that I would have given him. You would have expected him to get at least one goal in those appearances off the bench but he hasn't even done that. Ings is a difficult one. For me, before his injury he proved himself the be a decent Premier League striker. But ultimately he was signed in the Rodgers era when the standard of signings was a lot lower. He needs regular game time and patience and I don't think we can afford to give him that.

None of the other Eds react the way you do. I appreciate it's your website but I would suggest you save the snappy posts for someone posting genuine abuse.

{Ed002's Note - Origi is out on loan this season and is a young winger - hardly someone expected to be prolific. If you really expected Ings and Solanke to be "prolific" this season you clearly know near zip about the game at all. So as I say, use your power to abuse the owners on Twitter - we already know direct abuse of the primary owners wife by Liverpool fans gets his attention. Make it clear you want these wasters out of the club.}


15.) 18 Feb 2018 14:28:08
I think Origi was a great option of the bench, people forget some of his performances, owning the Dortmund defence, a scorcher against Everton, late equaliser against WBA.

Origi should be brought back if he’s willing to be backup, if not then let the lad go and build his career elsewhere.
Solanke is not getting a kick at the minute.


16.) 18 Feb 2018 15:36:14
I think Origi is a difficult one, he was on fire a couple of seasons ago and got badly injured I think against Everton just before the Europa cup final. I would love to see him back in the club fully fit and firing, he would be our supersub.


17.) 18 Feb 2018 18:13:10
You are right, We can’t bring in players without making room. We all thought ward would make the GK position his own. And where is the kid now? People need to lower their bar on some players and I am afraid Gomez has no future at RB and Klopp would be stupid to go into next season with only VVD as his preferred CB. Why isn’t Gomez getting a shot at CB now? We need a new RB and new LB. No denial of it! Someone has to make way for new players.

Klopp will look onto push from where we finish this season and if we are to challenge city ( realistically ) then some notable names would be shown the door.
The front three are brilliant. But the 4th player is average Lallana, AOC, Ings and Solanke wouldn’t score anywhere near to what Coutinho scored for us! The club did buy a few players who were not needed imo.
And I don’t even know what are the plans with Woodburn and Ojo.
Just my thought!


18.) 18 Feb 2018 18:17:01
How people can call for new cb after two clean sheets and the most expensive cb in history is beyond me. We are not lacking there. Perhaps we could use another forward but whoever it is will have go sit on the bench a lot when. I think we sill sign a big, tough cm to replace can and perhaps a courts replacement.


19.) 18 Feb 2018 18:30:56
I don't see klopp bringing on 7/ 8 new faces as the original post suggests. We have a good squad who we all agree can beat anyone on our day. Why risk that with a overhaul of the current squad. People have short memories. Last season, when we were challenging for top spot, Adam lallana was one of our best Players. He has been injured but let's get him back in, he is class.

I see summer transfers,

Keita
A rb to replace Clyne and perhaps free up taa and gomez to play in their natural positions.
And a top class creative player who can play in midfield or in front free.
And maybe a gk if Karius has a poor run in to the end of season. I'd much prefer Karius to prove the doubters wrong though.


20.) 18 Feb 2018 18:32:28
Ndidi, Dendoncker, Dacoure for midfield

Upfront Brandt, Forsberg, Pulisic.


21.) 18 Feb 2018 18:55:03
I ask the question all the time - who are the 20 / 21 yr old prolific strikers in the league or in the world? They need time to mature. Maybe in their mid 20s we can judge the likes of solanke and origi.


22.) 18 Feb 2018 20:39:33
I’d expect the below to certainly be leaving next window.

Can.
Mignolet.
Flannaghan.
Sturridge.
Origi.
Markovic.

Plus I’d expect some of these to leave but dependant on arrivals.

Clyne.
Ward.
Matip.
Klavan.
Moreno.
Milner.

I’d love both Brandt and Lemar to come in this summer. Would offer versatility, pace, creativity and goals to our midfield. Id expect a goalkeeper but could be to be a number two to Karius yet.

Defence for me depends on sales from above players leaving and where they play.


23.) 18 Feb 2018 21:35:32
Lol leekuanyew, where's the 300 odd million coming from for that lot.


24.) 18 Feb 2018 21:50:51
Gk will likely be signed - I’d love Oblak he’s quality, unlikely we’ll sign him so more likely we move for Alisson or Navas.
RB needed imo - just go and get pereira (Porto) he’s a good full back and offers so much going forward
CB - probably need unless Lovren or Matip can mould a good partnership with VVD. Wouldn’t be opposed to getting De Vrij
LB - for me I’m okay with Robbo and Moreno, again wouldn’t be opposed to sogining Sessegnon if we could agree a deal.
Deeper lying midfielder - needed and I’d like Dendoncker, if he can make the step up from Anderlecht he’d be a quality addition.
CM - either Keita coming in I’d be happy signing just Dendoncker on top we’d be sorted imo.
Winger - for me we need to get another winger in to provide cover for Mane/ Salah. Wouldn’t expect a world beater but I wouldn’t mind seeing Demari Gray, he lacks end product at times but he has pace and skill so would be a good impact sub imo.
Striker not needed. Ings and Solanke are good enough to be back up to bobby.
For my GK, RB, Holding mid, Winger and probs a CB will come in. Cb will only come in if Klavan and Matip/ Lovren leave.


25.) 19 Feb 2018 00:06:14
Lol den. Some people's expectations are crazy. No wonder they're never happy.

Everyone except a few liverpool fans can see we finally have a proper lb. Robertson has been great so far
Gomez is one of the hottest prospects in world football, why on earth would we even consider getting rid of?

Henderson has proved his doubters wrong this season, He is a classy no6, our captain and probably our best cm. Again, why would we get rid?
I understand milner as he is getting on but he is so good in Europe I'd like to keep him.

Getting rid of lallana is crazy and dangerous, selling him to spurs would give them a huge advantage, he is class.
I agree that sturridge has to go, too much wages for nothing.
Origi, I'm not sure, don't know if he has improved this year. Good back up cf or winger.

Migs should go and Clyne, but only Clyne if we buy a better rb than any we already have. I'd be perfectly happy to have taa as our rb with Clyne as back up

I understand people calling for cb but I don't think it will happen. I don't think we need it either. Lovren is so much better at rcb and I think he and Vvd have the makings of a great partnership. On the back of consecutive clean sheets i am more than willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.


 

 

18 Feb 2018 08:53:04
Progress has been made this season for me. Although we were knocked out of the League and FA Cup, we are starting to show signs of finally breaking into the top 4 again and that is along with looking pretty good in the CL and that was a worry for many on whether we will be able to keep up the pace in both competitions.

If we can push to finish 2nd in the League and try defeat all odds in the CL then let me tell you, this would turn out to be a great season.

First aim now obviously will be to secure CL qualification for next season. let's face it, we are not favourites to win the CL but make it to the CL final will put the cherry right on top. Fingers crossed.

Managers need to be consistent and although Klopp has failed to win silverware, took over from Rodgers when when we were left in nomansland 15/ 16 season whith a squad which was purchased in a candy shop.

Last season, Klopp's first full season, 4th, CL qualification.

This season we are currently 3rd, 2 points behind UTD and well on our way to the qauter finals of the CL.

If we were worse off than last season then by all means Klopp would have deserved to be a whipping boy.

Next season I really hold high hopes and believe Klopp will add the missing pieces to the puzzle to take us to the next level challenging all the way for the title.

FSG have given Klopp the backing he needs and will continue to do so.

Next season we can only hope that Klopp brings us the one thing we have been craving for well over two decades.

Believe!

Almost completely agree. But if you think we’re good enough to get to the champions league final then we’re good enough to win it!
The final is just one game, anything can happen and we already know that on our day we can go toe to toe with anyone.


2.) 18 Feb 2018 09:13:56
Completely agree, I think we’re a few signings away from a serious challenge and I don’t think those signings will be made in one window. Aslong as we can keep getting a top four finish and improve on that we’re moving in the right direction. Klondike made mistakes but I’m more than happy with him, wether we get the title with him or not we look better with him. Plus all those who say he’s failed as he told the owners he’d win the league in his first two seasons or whatever, who doesn’t exaggerate in job interviews. Can’t imagine the owners would of appointed someone if they told them the team was miles off a title challenge.


3.) 18 Feb 2018 09:16:30
For me Klopp has done a fantastic job and you cannot deny on our day we can beat anyone. There is not much difference between us, Spurs, Utd and Chelsea. All these teams have their different strengths and weakness's and the league table shows how close the 4 teams are. City have raised the bar though in the league and if they carry on the way they are then it's going to be neon impossible for other clubs to compete for the league title. 18 points and only 1 defeat is a massive gap and hopefully it is only a freakish one off season for them. As it stands the CL looks easier for us to win than the league.


4.) 18 Feb 2018 11:05:36
IMO the best two teams left in the CL is Man City and PSG. There is a fair chance PSG may go out. We have akready shown that on our day we can beat City.

At this stage of the CL, quite honestly anyone could win it (as shown in 2005!) . But that applies to every other team as well as us!


5.) 18 Feb 2018 12:17:44
I think we're getting a little carried away with the Porto win. Yes it was a great result but we haven't played anyone of considerable note in the CL, none of the big boys. Yes we beat city, but they also beat us 5-0. Over two legs that's a heavy loss, and we don't yet know how they compare to the bayerns, Madrids and barcelonas. One game at a time, let's get through this round and see who we face first.


6.) 18 Feb 2018 14:30:35
We need to win something this season so it will have to be the champions league 👍.


7.) 18 Feb 2018 15:23:39
Ron, we don’t need to win anything. The last thing we need to be is unrealistic as fans. I’m happy to see signs of progress, I’m also happy to have a decent run in the cl but that’s all I’m expecting. We’re not on the same level as Man City, Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern so expecting us to win it is silly.
Ofcourse I’d be over the moon if we did but let’s be realistic with where we are as a team.


8.) 18 Feb 2018 18:24:50
Firmane, spot on.


9.) 18 Feb 2018 18:27:10
I think real Madrid put psg firmly in their place. The best teams are the spannish teams. City's European record is not as good as their league form, weren't they beat by shaktar doneskt this season. We can win the tournament. We can beat anyone. We are the 2nd best team in England, mot far behind city and probably 5th best team on ucl. I think we'll win it.


10.) 18 Feb 2018 20:23:32
Great points made on this thread, guys. I agree with the notion that we have indeed made progress under Klopp esp. judging by where we were when he came to us which was frankly, NOWHERE and the mess BR left is still being fixed by Klopp till this day. See Markovic.

As for winning something or needing to win something, you have to be able to compete w/ your rivals before you can aspire to win something. When Klopp came here, we were 11th and stuck on neutral with BR running his mouth all day about how cool he is as LFC manager, blaming everyone else for our woes. We finished 8th that season behind wait for it, WH and Saints in 6th and 7th. Yeah, that happened.

What did Klopp do? He first of all cleared out those who don't fit the way we play and then, got us playing great but not perfect football which in the end got us CL footie ahead of Arsenal and Utd (via the PL), teams we were nowhere near when he came. Now tho we had our issues at the start and after the Spurs loss, we hit rock bottom BUT Klopp dragged us out of it and tho things could have been better, we are 3rd and TOTALLY crushing it in the CL.

My point is that now, we are smack in the middle of competing with teams wde were miles behind of when he arrived within two full seasons (that is a credit to him and the players in itself) and the next step is to WIN. We are ahead of Arsenal and neck and neck w/ Spurs, Chelsea and Utd. Again, UNTHINKABLE when Klopp arrived here. We don't need to win anything this year BUT that does not mean we will not try our best. Why? Klopp is a winner and has the trophy cabinet and finals appearances to prove his pedigree as a relentless competitor with a will to win. Patience and optimism and we WILL get there, IMO.

{Ed002's Note - Klopp has had nothing whatsoever to do with Markovic and if anything has made matters worth by sending a totally unfit player out on loan.}


11.) 18 Feb 2018 22:15:18
city were beaten in europe when there was nothing on the line.

We've already gone further in the CL than we have since Rafa was here and we are right in the race to secure top 4 for a consecutive season.

looks like progress to me.


12.) 19 Feb 2018 00:01:54
Pegleg,

“We don’t need to win anything”

Of course we do, coz we are Liverpool and not Arsenal or Spurs. Success is measured by trophies. If not this season we need to show something next season!


13.) 19 Feb 2018 12:29:31
Harry, I agree on the point we need to win things however let’s be honest we’re by no means the best team in the cl but anything is possible. My point was let’s not say we need to win the cl or this years been a failure because if we get a top four finish again in my eyes that’s progression something we’ve lacked for years. Next season I’d be expecting us not only get a top for but to challenge for the title with the right signings and hopefully win some silver wear. I don’t think we have a squad with enough depth at the moment to walk the league like city but I don’t think we’re far off.


14.) 19 Feb 2018 13:00:16
Den82, obviously I am talking about either one or 2 of them, not all of them when I mention:

Upfront Brandt, Forsberg, Pulisic.

It’s funny that 90% of people were wax lyrical about how amazing city were after they beat a team worse than Porto 4-0 the night before but it’s all talk about how poor the opposition were for us.

Porto qualified for the knock out stages of the ucl! How useless can they be?

15 Feb 2018 15:43:25
I saw a post a while ago again about someone mentioning a 30 goal a season striker.

So who should take a place on the bench out of Mane, Salah and Firmino. You will struggle to find a more potent front three.

City rely on Aguero, Spurs rely on Kane, UTD rely on cough cough Lukaku. Arsenal, well we know how it is going with them spending massive amounts on strikers.

All I can say is welcome to Liverpool under Klopp where we play with 3 forwards. That way we do not have to depend on one player up top getting most of the goals.

maxlfc

1.) 15 Feb 2018 16:12:56
Some sides do rely heavily on that sort of player, a pure finisher that hits home the chances the rest of the team creates. We don’t play that way at all thank goodness.


2.) 15 Feb 2018 16:47:59
Firmino is the key driving force in a large portion of our counter attacks. IMO he is irreplaceable and I hope you agree underrated.


3.) 15 Feb 2018 16:49:18
Max, it's harsh to say that City rely on Aguero to get the goals. They also have Sane, Sterling, de Bruyne, Jesus etc who are all in double figures for the season.


4.) 15 Feb 2018 16:55:37
Best thing about Firmino is you can see he is enjoying playing for LFC.

The other good things is that we do not seem to be missing Coutinho.


5.) 15 Feb 2018 17:10:12
sibsama,

Take Aguero out of the City team at this point and who is going to play up top for them? Jesus is injured. Without Aguero, who does Guardiola play up top? Yes, they do depend on Aguero. Aguero has been injury prone over the seasons too.

That is the point. If one of Salah, Mane or Firmino had to sit out then Klopp just throws someone else in like Ox, Solanke or Ings to fill the gap. Klopp is not depending on Firmino to play as an out and out striker like Aguero, Kane, Lukaku or Morata etc.

Clearly Firmino makes our attack tick but should he not be able to play, throw on Solanke to hold up the ball and we still have Mane and Salah to rip opposition defences to shreds.


6.) 15 Feb 2018 17:17:08
Yes we do need a 20 or 30 goal forward. And we have 2 of them this season in Firmino and Salah. If they hadn't have scored those goals then we wouldn't be where we are.


7.) 15 Feb 2018 18:34:10
I reckon Firmino will break 20 league goals and Salah will get more than 30 league goals. In the words of Teenage Fanclub, ain’t that enough?

What a win last night. It feels good to have a manager who is adept in Europe. Going to Porto and winning 5-0 as well as pretty much booking your place in the 1/ 4"s.

Cannot say I have seen a better counter attacking team of late than LFC. Simply mouthwatering football to watch.

We are unbeaten in the CL too.

Let's go all the way!

Assuming we get through, the big tests lie in playing the continental giants, teams like real, Barcelona and bayern, that our boys have never played against before.

I am not assuming anything and do not have to. I want us to get all the way to the final.

One of my mates at work is a Real fan and he was not expecting them to beat PSG.

Why the need for negativity after a massive win against Porto away? It is not like they are pushovers.

Well, we played bayern in Pre season, at their ground and smashed them 3 0. Only Pre season but bayern were trying. So I'm not afraid of any of them. Despite results I firmly believe we are the better team to spurs and they done a job on real.

It is the pragmatic teams I worry about, juventus or porto. Teams who try to out play us will get a rude awakening.

Good old Chinese takeover of LFC rumours.

FSG will not sell now unless they want to lose all their investment.

My word, what is it with fans who do not understand that it was Coutinho who pushed for the move? How difficult is that to understand? LFC did not want to sell Coutinho but unfortunately Coutinho made it clear he wanted to go.

Liverpool resisted last summer but unfortunately one cannot hang onto to a player who would have caused major uproar again if Liverpool did not allow him to go to Barcelona in this window.

And how many times do the EDS need to drill it into thick sculls that the club will only buy first choice players from now on i. e. only no 1 targets on and that there will be no panic buys in this window.

Get it? i. e. if the no 1 targets are not available or do not make sense financially in this window i. e. paying a very massive premium to bring Keita in earlier then the club will wait for the summer.

Lessons have been learned through the VVD deal. The club can no longer act like amateurs in the transfer market.

So please stop spitting the dummy out as it is unlikely any new additions will be arriving due to availability or ridiculous asking prices in the January window.

Moaners will have to keep their panties on until the summer.

That is exactly the problem. Mignolet is on a very lucrative contract and most clubs will snub him because of that.

So it will either be Liverpool who takes the knock or Mignolet becoming desperate and makes some tough decisions.

He might do well in the Serie A? Many GK's do.

Well, Sporting will get a massive pay day letting Martins leave and must be what they are aiming for.

Clyne will be moved on as soon as he has found someone who is interested.

Gomez and TAA have proven to be better options anyway.

Ed025, the way LFC played last might have seen many other teams bend over. That is how devastatingly good we were.

Does not make Porto a rubbish team or even worse than Everton have been this season.

{Ed025's Note - i would like to see the reds go on and win it max, but porto were abysmal mate..

Lovren and VVD seem to have some sort of understanding between them and I believe having Mignolet not flapping all over the show is calming our defence down a bit.

But yeah, Klopp probably going to sign another CB this coming summer whic will likely have to see one go. Matip just does not seem to be up for it. On his day, Lovren can be up there with the best but his inconsistency has proven time and time to get the better of him.

Give Trent time and he could develop into a mean machine RB. Might save us a whole lot of money in the long run and you can see he is full on wanting to improve everytime he gets onto the pitch. He will still make mistakes as he is still learning his trade as a footballer but by far our best option at RB at this point.

Has fat Sam ever managed a team in Europe mate?

Porto are not the fly by night team you are making them out to be. I guess Everton will do just as well in the Primeira Liga?

maxlfc

{Ed025's Note - he has actually max, i would not call porto fly by nights though mate...they are a lot worse than that..

Spot on Idontlooklikeklopp, it is called game intelligence.

You are not going to see Firmino running defenders ragged but one thing is for sure, he will outsmart any opposition defender on the pitch.

Funny you mention Sturridge AW. got to feel for the guy, his career will never take off again as he is made of glass, unfortunately.

Mane although he is not showing shear pace at the moment still provides movement which is what is required. Also, he could be trying not to outdo himself and pace himself as another injury would set him back again when he is trying to get up to speed again. Baby steps.
