James Pearce just reported that Alisson has passed his medical.

Done and dusted fellow LFC fams :-)


1.) 19 Jul 2018 20:10:14
Fams shortened for family by the way.

2.) 19 Jul 2018 22:42:14
Just posted a pic to the sightings page from which I have just been messaged from a link inside Melwood.



17 Jul 2018 20:18:40
So we are in talks to sign Alisson. What did I tell yous that it is likely a knew GK will arrive, If it happens it happens, if it doesn't so be it.

Think the Brasilia presence at LFC might just give us the upper hand. Who knows what is going to happen :-)


1.) 17 Jul 2018 20:45:41
I can't understand the logic in the Alisson bid. I know people have their opinions, but I've watched a fair bit of Kasper schmichael over the past few yrs, and in my opinion he has fewer bad games than any other keeper in the league barring De Gea. But, the main thing is that he seems to thrive on pressure and the big stage in exactly the type of games we want ourselves involved in. Whereas the only evidence we have of Alisson performing in big games is a nothing display against Liverpool and some pretty poor ones in Russia.

{Ed001's Note - the same Schmeichel that was rank all last season and the season before?}

2.) 17 Jul 2018 20:46:05
Is right max, but to be honest mate when you lose one of your top three keepers in Migs (who will leave) there is a really big possibility that there will be a new one coming in. i think Alisson will sign personally. To much smoke on this one mate👍.

3.) 17 Jul 2018 20:49:38
Is Alissons aim true.

4.) 17 Jul 2018 20:54:01
Must have missed his Rank games ed001 😂.

{Ed001's Note - he has had a poor couple of seasons. Attitude is stinking, hence why he suddenly stepped it up for his country.}

5.) 17 Jul 2018 21:00:40
I believe Firmino put in a good word for us LOL.

6.) 17 Jul 2018 21:26:03
There's probably more truth in that than you think Max.

7.) 17 Jul 2018 21:38:32
No one bothered that Klopp pretty much lied to the current goalkeepers?! Saying they’d be fighting for 1st!

8.) 17 Jul 2018 21:43:06
Yeah dean, like when Benitez told us Alonso was not going to be sold and the we got Aquilani!

9.) 17 Jul 2018 21:50:30
Kasper is overrated, makes loads of mistakes and was dropped by Leicester towards the end of the season. He is a good organiser like his dad and decent shot stopper but he’s been mistake riddled for most of his career.

10.) 17 Jul 2018 21:59:12
Dean the other keepers would be fighting for the no1 spot. It would be an up hill battle but that is what it is. If they end up being better than alisson then they would be no1. Or maybe ward has told klopp he wants out? We aren't to know. If you want to win things you need the best players you can get. If the club has the money to spend then I'm all for it. Shaqiri on the cheap may have reopened the door for this to happen while still having money left for a no10.

11.) 17 Jul 2018 22:33:58
Dean who said klopp promised anyone anything? A couple of journos? Must be true so.

12.) 18 Jul 2018 01:02:47
Agree AussieMARK all players should be wanting to be number 1, we have got some decent competition across a number of positions which makes for an exciting season,

13.) 17 Jul 2018 22:49:11
Sorry Ed001. I get quite a few hits when I search for Alisson. so I have tried to RTFP. Can I ask (although i am sure others have already. sorry), what is your view on Alisson? Is he a step up from Karius/ Ward, could he be the answer? Would there be someone else you would prefer?

{Ed001's Note - you obviously haven't read much I was saying last season then! Alisson is a quality keeper with the potential to be the best in the world.}

14.) 18 Jul 2018 04:21:20
I think if you are in the squad and NOT fighting for no. 1 in your position you ought to be elsewhere.

15.) 18 Jul 2018 06:52:20
Deano - why would anyone be bothered what Klopp said to the players?
Players lie, managers lie. It happens all the time. Football is a massive business and at the top it is ruthless.
Players know they are in competition with their peers and are handsomely rewarded for it.
Don’t worry about them, they’ll get over it 🤝.

16.) 18 Jul 2018 07:17:57
Actually the Eds where the ones who said it? Not some journos! I don’t think you’d be on this site if you didn’t respect their opinion.
And I understand we all want a gk, but it’s a shame to hear on yet another bit of unprofessionalism after we’ve heard so much about tapping up etc.

17.) 18 Jul 2018 10:42:13
Many thanks Ed001. I had a feeling you had said something along those lines, but I am getting older and my memory is going. Good to hear your view, I appreciate it!

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate. I really rate him, he does have the modern keeper's obsession with a punch rather than a catch, but they all do that. His reflexes are lightning.}



16 Jan 2018 16:06:07
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.


1.) 16 Jan 2018 16:11:14
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.



07 Jul 2017 22:45:23
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.


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 .................




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


{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.

I for one cannot understand the negativity about how we are playing considering the healthy position we have found ourselves in this season.

Bloody hell, we are not seeing the mother of it all fast paced action this season we are used to but maybe Klopp saw a shining light bulb and realised that leaving a GK exposed will perhaps see us collecting more points. Enough said.

Alisson has improved us on a vulcanic scale but does not mean he would have conceded less than what he has seeing a team ahead of him leaving him exposed.

The football we saw last season was simply mouthwatering to watch but it shows that Klopp is not a one trick pony and willing to make changes.

The fact that we are only 2 points off of City speaks volumes compared to LFC figting for 4th last season at the same stage after 12 games :-o.


1.) 13 Nov 2018 18:13:08
We are 12 games in and not really playing well.
4 of those games we were lucky in.
Another 4 could quite easily gone on to loose.
I can understand comments like yours, but you have to be realistic and ask up to what point can u go and not play well? We are a a third in to the season, how long do you realistically expect to keep this not playing well but only 2 points behind city mantra?

The wheels will come off and then we will be far more than 2 points behind, then what will we say?

City are excellent and worse is other teams are afraid to go there and play them.
Also do honestly believe they are worried by our stuttering form?

I do not belive in the WC syndrome at all. If anything, when you play at the WC you are even more ampted up to do well, both in that competition but also in the league.

It also shoild not take 12 games for a very good coach like Klopp to realise what is the issue and apply a fix to it.

Another issue is that as time progresses and this stuttering form presists, then players will become more and more anxious in games which causes more stress and more probability to loose.

I don't belive we have been play this poor by design, I think there is something wrong that does need to addressed as soon as possible.

It is not about being negative bit it is also not about being blindley optimist over how we are playing.

2.) 13 Nov 2018 18:25:12
We are playing well, our league position proves that, we are just playing differently to last season, more professionally.
I remember united winning the title several times especially in fergies later years by playing professional, grinding out results week after week, I don’t remember them playing so called heavy metal football, smashing teams 6-5 every week.
Last year we had pretty football, this year we have a title challenge.

3.) 13 Nov 2018 18:30:16
Very well said Mikey.

4.) 13 Nov 2018 18:33:32
The fact that you can say the wheels will come off just shows the level of fans we have.

I can understand if we were midtable and all hope lost but this season has brought out the true Liverpool fan. One of LFC deserve it all :-o.

5.) 13 Nov 2018 18:46:24
Red kurd, well said you have stated exactly my thoughts to perfection. You managed to sum up all my posts this season in one go.
Well said good sir, its good to see I am not the only one that feels we are very fortunate to be in 2nd place.
Ive said before but really see Arsenal doing really well and taking our 2nd place.

{Ed025's Note - thats all we need...another walter.. :)

6.) 13 Nov 2018 18:46:58
I wouldn't say negativity I would say expectations of how well we know we can play. You can still be solid at the back and move the ball quicker up front and take teams apart.

7.) 13 Nov 2018 18:47:03
Red Kurd, you don't know if the wheels will fall off so no need posting absolutist stuff. That's just the reality. Now, we can all agree that we need to improve so that to me, is not in dispute. What is in dispute is how people just lose their stuff cos we did not beat Fulham 5-0. That is just crazy. They seem to forget that we struggled last season as well at this point BUT the diff. is that we are 12 points better off, with a GK of epic talent and a much better defence. Our boys are also very effective and efficient in their play even tho, they must improve. Also, the football we played last season brought us NO title challenge for the reasons and we finished the season on our knees physically. That type of football will not win you the PL cos it is unsustainable over a long period and Klopp has realized that.

Maxlfc, the reason why I thin, people are going overboard is cos they are obsessed with City and judge everything we do thru the prism of what City is doing. I have said it before, if people want to do that then that is a choice they have chosen to make so they should not be surprised if they are losing their marbles cos we don't win games the way City does. Personally, I don't care about them and in fact, we are out to take their crown so we need to focus on ourselves, improve our shortcomings and go from there. People may not think we can do it and that is fine. Klopp thinks we can and I'm riding with him till the end. YNWA!

8.) 13 Nov 2018 18:52:23
Resoecgt all opinion as always but the post from Red Kurd must be a wind up surely?
We are second and yet your still unhappy you do realise there is only one team above us right in the table
So if we can play this bad in your well informed opinion and still be seocnd then what happens when we start playing well?
Some people will always find the misery in happiness which is sad tbh.

9.) 13 Nov 2018 18:54:18
If Bobby n Mane pull their finger out and start playing, the "form" will look a lot better.

10.) 13 Nov 2018 19:03:05
John, I think Walter made a second account mate ;) .

11.) 13 Nov 2018 19:05:33
Max your comments are bordering on being silly.
My comments are aimed at the fact there is nothing wrong with aiming for perfection.
Do you think Pep, Jose or Sari or even Fregi back in the day would put
Do you think any of them would be content with this stuttering?
Do you not think it would be fixed by now if it was any of them?

How can you say we are playing well when there has been at least 4 games we could have lost and 4 games where we had luck on our side?

Been supporting LFC since a long time and fans like me - who care enough to actually want to win every game and win in style will always demand perfection and nothing else.
Why be content and settle for 2nd place or third place oe any other apart from winning the league.

Do you think in our current form we will win the league?

Why can we not tey to do better?
Whats wrong with that?
Always aiming to improve.

{Ed025's Note - although its negative you do make some valid points red kurd..

12.) 13 Nov 2018 19:12:45
Does not seem like Walter is getting it all when it comes to his corn flakes in the morning.

13.) 13 Nov 2018 19:23:29
I think we could all benefit from a little bit of nuance.

Yes, we're in a very good position, but it isn't completely unreasonable to be concerned that the performances haven't been great and to worry that we may get punished if we continue to play like that. It's kinda gone beyond a slow start at this point.

Equally, there's no need to go overboard with doom and gloom because we haven't blown teams away. And I think any negativity is partially influenced by the performances of Man City as much as our own. If they weren't there with the expectation that they're going to drop sod all points, or were at the level they were at 2-3 years ago, I think we'd be a lot less worried.

14.) 13 Nov 2018 19:23:54
I’m interested Red Kurd genuinely. What 4 games could we have lost? And what 4 games did we have luck on our side? I’ll bet you in every single one I could give you a counter argument.
Point is if you think negatively you will always see the negative in every game and say ‘but if that had gone in we could’ve lost’.
Try just enjoying it mate you’ll live longer.

15.) 13 Nov 2018 19:29:57
Whilst I agree that you can always improve if you are only happy with perfection then you will be unhappy most of your life. We are currently second with our best ever start to a premier league season and the 10th best premier league start of all time. Some of the complaints on here sound like a hysterical child!

{Ed025's Note - no argument from me there kramer..

16.) 13 Nov 2018 19:31:12
Put it this way, I’d rather be winning 1-0 or 2-0 as apposed 5-4 with a shoddy defence. The great Liverpool sides of the 70’s and 80’s were built on a solid defence.

These scrappy wins actually shows how far we’ve come defensively compared to last season, in fact even longer, for as long as I can remember since Hodgson was at the helm.

As for the World Cup, for me it has had an effect, not so much fatigue but not having a proper pre season together, folk seem underestimate the importance of pre season.

Plus, the team has been set up differently, not so gung ho with the press etc, I actually think we’ve done well!

I think Ed001 mentioned that the team are now looking to get back into the pressing style of last season.

Yes we’ve been lucky at times but so has every team that have won the league in recent years.

17.) 13 Nov 2018 19:22:41
Rekurdle, I said nothing about playing well. In which way do you want us to improve?

Winning each match?

*Evil laugh*.



21 Jul 2018 22:45:21
I cannot remember me being this excited about a new season the day we signed Jurgen Klopp.

He has turned this club around in a very short space of time.

You look back at how LFC has fallen down the ladder season after season over the years. Yes no silverware as yet but I have a feeling it will come this season.

Considering were the club was when Klopp took over.



1.) 21 Jul 2018 23:04:53
Its unreal how much better we are than the day rodgers left. i've said it before but is there anyone who could have taken over that side in 2015 and be in the position we are now not even 3 years later?

2.) 22 Jul 2018 00:12:33
There probably could have been tbh. but klopp feels like a perfect fit for us.

Also, we haven't won anything yet. We're just continuing the steady progress we've been making since klopp arrived. Trophy or not this season, the progress is obvious.

3.) 22 Jul 2018 06:47:38
Surely a trophy Will be minimum expectation this year given the outlay?

4.) 22 Jul 2018 07:15:48
I don't think we've done enough as a club to say that bare minimum expectation is a trophy. I mean we still have to show that we can win a trophy first. that might not even happen this season. and if doesn't, if that is the minimum expectation, then do we just rip it up next year? minimum for me now is that we challenge for prem and are in the race for the cups (make semi, final etc)

5.) 22 Jul 2018 09:51:11
We haven't done enough, but I pose the question should Klopps job be under threat if we don't at the very least challenge for title given how much has been spent.

6.) 22 Jul 2018 10:07:12
With you there, Faithworks. I know many will be losing their bricks and go full-on "whine and moan" if we do not win a trophy this season BUT you are correct. We have to earn that right and that is only earned on the pitch. I also think that it would be foolish to rip up the whole thing and start again cos if heaven's forbid, we do not win a trophy this season.

I mean, Poch has won nothing at Spurs for FOUR seasons yet Spurs aren't ripping anything up. They in fact, gave him an extension cos they know that he is the best chance they have of winning a sausage at the moment. Same with Klopp. He is challenging for trophies right now and all we have to do is get over that hump and we will be there. Hopefully, this is the year we get it right.

7.) 22 Jul 2018 10:13:24
if we start well, we will win the league. If we struggle at the start, I still think we’ll win the league.

8.) 22 Jul 2018 11:39:23
Agreed aoe. Imo we need at least 16 points from our from 6 games if not all 18! A good start would have won us the league with Rodgers.

9.) 22 Jul 2018 11:48:57
It always amazing how careless we can be with predictions. Am not a betting man, but would hate to see how some of you gamble lol

For me it just comes down to enjoying the journey and loving supporting the club.

10.) 22 Jul 2018 12:12:39
Rodgers got us closer to the league than Klopp has. Klopp is the better manager imo, miles better but he still hasn't won owt yet. This year surely.

11.) 22 Jul 2018 12:17:52
That season under BR was the best lightening in a bottle ever! Unfortunately, the poor planning and lack of identity came back to hurt us.

12.) 22 Jul 2018 12:59:30
Spot on, Faithworks. Robbiejames, I compare our ride under BR to that of LC under Ranieri. LC just wanted to stay up going into that season and they found themselves in a title tilt. The diff. here is that Ranieri was very humble, measured YET determined in about it in his public comments. He kept his head down, so did the players and they got it done.

BR did bring us close to winning the PL BUT was that by design or by us as Faithworks said, "Catching lightning in the bottle"? You will find that the latter is the case. BR was mandated to get us back in the top 4 that season and we were 4th going into the NY. Then, "we catch lightning in a bottle" and go on a 12 win streak. The title tilt came as a shock BUT unlike Ranieri, BR did not know how to handle it due to his ego, mismanagement and arrogance and we messed up. The fact of the matter is that BR won NOTHING in his 3-plus seasons here while Klopp had us challenging for trophies from jump till last season so the hope is now, we can get it done this season.



21 Jul 2018 21:02:36
Looking at it, has the competition really strengthened?

Arsenal have a new manager and their new signing have not been much to write home about. Chelsea new manager too and looking likely to lose two key players before the window shuts. Both managers completely different vs Arsene and Conte so who knows how things will work out there.

City have signed Mahrez, but now he ain't a big fish in a small pond anymore.

UTD, well, Mourinho will be moaning about everything and blame everyone else again this coming season.

Spurs have not signed anyone if I can recall. Not a happy place for them to be permanently relying on Kane.

Thank heavens we have Klopp!


1.) 21 Jul 2018 21:26:01
Didn't spurs sign lamela? Looked a half decent player and if they can keep their defence intact then they will be there or there abouts.

Chelsea look the weakest imo, especially if they lose hazard, which they will. Signing smicheal maybe or other not so good keepers. If they lose William then they will be in trouble.

Arsenal? Who knows. I doubt he will have them clicking straight away.

I think utd will be there abouts and I think it'll be a lot closer this year between us, City and utd. That's my order

Liverpool, City, utd, spurs, arsenal then chelsea.

2.) 21 Jul 2018 21:24:12
One problem tho, the window hasn't closed yet.

3.) 21 Jul 2018 21:44:53
RJ-Spurs signed Lamela 5 years ago!

4.) 21 Jul 2018 22:09:14
New managers often have a good start - no-one has worked them out yet and players wanting to impress plus the beginning of the season after a World Cup is always a leveller 🤝.

5.) 21 Jul 2018 22:20:32
True Irish but who will UTD sign? Bale? Cough Cough.

6.) 21 Jul 2018 22:30:46
Ron, I cannot see any team running away with the League like City did last season.

The Arsenal job not going to be easy to resurrect. They are in decline.

Sarri, well, if he loses Courtois which is looking likely then it will be a bitter blow. Lose Hazrad too and it might very well spoil the party.

7.) 22 Jul 2018 00:17:27
I always prefer to look at how a team develops rather than who has signed, or at least if it was a spectrum I'd lean that way moreso. I mean people were losing their rubbish in Jan when arsenal were strengthening with aubameyang and others, it was like our death was a foregone conclusion. i just trust ourselves and what klopp is building.

8.) 22 Jul 2018 01:23:05
Lamela has just signed a 2 year extension on his current contract.

9.) 22 Jul 2018 08:20:41
City are the team to catch, no one even came close last season as they ran away with the league. We demonstrated on lots of occasions though that we can match them or better them. We just now have to be able to do it over a 38 League game season.

10.) 22 Jul 2018 12:25:24
Oh, I thought they signed Southampton lamela?



20 Jul 2018 18:06:26
So here is what I am thinking, Klopp is just tickling everyone to suggest our window is done and dusted.

Going by what Ed002 mentioned in one of his posts earlier, it seems we are still in the hunt before the window closes :-)

Believe we will still see Coutinho's replacement before the window closes.


1.) 20 Jul 2018 19:02:16
I think we are done Max and priority is selling a few on to reduce the numbers and wage bill. Only 1 outfield player in Emre has left with 3 already arriving. No room for anyone else mate.

2.) 20 Jul 2018 19:30:38
I think Ed02 just raised the prospect of mignolet and karius both leaving in which case we will still need to sign a goalkeeper. There was no hidden messages.

3.) 20 Jul 2018 19:50:20
Karius leave? Not seen any interest in him tbh. Same with Mignolet.



19 Jul 2018 19:56:20
Welcome Alisson, he has passed his medical.



1.) 19 Jul 2018 20:02:20
Welcome to Liverpool lad, YNWA! been waiting all day to see it as 'official' hopefully it's announced by the club tonight.

On another note, great to hear Jose Enrique is recovering well! he had certainly been through the wars that lad.

Sturridge will not start matches unless needed. It is safe to say his time at LFC is up.

We cannot hold onto the past.
