Any interest in Berindinho (sorry ill and ability to spell is gone)

I personally think he would be a better fit than Benteke, and also cost less.

Also wondered if his departure from the Devil himself, Aidy Ward, could be a way to pave a move to LFC (or am I merely hoping)


{Ed001's Note - no, he has a lot more problems to fix than just his agent.}

1.) 14 Jul 2015 14:34:06
Berahino is a great shout! was a fella on Talksport saying the same. More mobile than Benteke n a natural goal scorer and of course cheaper too.
We should be at least considering him, Benteke is a good Andy Carroll only.

2.) 14 Jul 2015 14:31:52
Ed have I missed something. btw not being sarcastic just like him as a player lol

{Ed001's Note - the guy is as much trouble as Sterling.}

3.) 14 Jul 2015 16:50:32
Berahino is aweful, a troublemaker and vastly overrated

4.) 14 Jul 2015 17:42:37
Berahino would be perfect, I thought he'd changed agent

5.) 14 Jul 2015 21:58:25
Perfect if you want an irresponsible drink driver playing for your team, someone else who thinks he is better than everyone else and thinks the law does not apply to him. I hope we get Benteke, he will eat defenders for breakfast.

A day on and as disappointed as I am. I see positives. we went to old Trafford and imo were the better team. to me it felt like a cup game where utd were the lower league team hanging on for their lives.
I would rather finish 3rd than 2nd watching the dross that utd dish up.
The only way that Maureen football is acceptable is if they where about to clinch the league.
And on the massive positive it's his 3rd season next year. and we know what happens then lol. the crack already showing with Pogba issues.

Finally I would have gone with Gomez in a bigger game as I think he is defensively better than Trent. but come on leave off the kid. and karious, well let not blow the confidence the guy has built up



1.) 12 Mar 2018 02:03:46
lets not worry about Utd and only our self. we have a lot to do and a lot to achieve on the pitch and offthe pitch. Wether I like Utd or not we have to accept that they are richer than us, has a bigger fan base, bigger stadium and more money to buy any player they want and improve their team. where as Lfc has to be smart and patient and use all the resources we have in getting back to where we belong, that is on the top of footballing world. but we can't do that by addmitting that we were second best and that we have a long long way to go.
Utd won the game let's give them the credit for it and learn from our mistakes.

2.) 12 Mar 2018 07:19:52
Spot on, Crazy. All we did was lose 3 points and nothing more and that does not mean we still can't take 2nd place. Our progression is still on schedule and we have a lot to play this season so let's stop the finger-pointing, learn the lessons needed to be learnt and get back down to basics cos Watford will not be easy.



11 Jan 2018 00:15:47
I am going to start by saying I don't think this is happening, but we are all of a sudden 7/2 favourites to sign Greizman. Also he is in the UK. in London at the nba.

See the dreaming has started lol.




06 Jan 2018 21:55:34
Is mahrez the replacement. good player but a definitely downgrade.


1.) 06 Jan 2018 22:11:56
yeah a premier league winner, as well as eclipsing couts goals and assists stats. Its an upgrade.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 22:48:24
It's not an upgrade. If it was an upgrade Barcelona would be buying folking Mahrez wouldn't they.

3.) 06 Jan 2018 22:50:40
Phil Neville ha Premier League winners medal but does that make him a better player than Steven Gerrard? I think that one off good season is not a reasonable means of judging Mahrez, he lacks the vision and guile of Coutinho and the price we would be paying is £25m far too much, an average premier league player at best replacing a player who is a world class talent. Standard us. This is an Andy Carroll/ Alberto Aquilini moment if ever there was one. The only way this deal would look good is if we also brought in a top class keeper and centre midfielder with a view to bringing in Lemar in the summer. Given the rumours of Madrid’s interest in Salah.



06 Jan 2018 17:53:31
My problem is not him leaving. my problem is the way he has gone about. Good luck in Spain, and good riddance. no one is bigger than the club.


1.) 06 Jan 2018 18:01:04
Our problem is replacing him.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 18:06:50
Absolutely spot on.

3.) 06 Jan 2018 18:09:32
I don't care about him. My problem is we've risked the entire season for nothing. It doesn't benefit us.

4.) 06 Jan 2018 18:15:34
I’ve no problem with him leaving. If the news is correct £142m is a decent fee, £100+ up front and realistic add ins to make the rest. Now we better had invest it sensibly in the squad to make up what we’ve lost. Thankfully we have time to but rather than panic.



17 Dec 2017 22:56:35
Keep hearing how simular we are too spurs apart from they have a better defence. we have conceded just 2 more goals than them this season. and of the 20 we have conceded 12 of them were in 3 games.
6th best defence in prem.
Don't get me wrong still think we need a new cb and goal keeper, but we really are not that far away.
If we can move that on to 3-4 best that a few of those draws becoming wins.


1.) 18 Dec 2017 00:24:40
Notice how much better we've been since Matip has been out 🤔 maybe it's a coincidence but for me, Klavan and Lovren seem to be building a decent partnership and i wouldn't break it up any time soon if I'm honest. Not unless we sign a top class centre back in January, at least!

2.) 18 Dec 2017 00:36:44
They definitely seem to have a decent understanding today. They pass out from the back quite well. There is still the niggling problem that they are slow for the way we want to play.

3.) 18 Dec 2017 02:48:21
finding consistency and confidence seems to be key for our guys.

4.) 18 Dec 2017 03:20:50
Klavan isn't the greatest defender but he is no nonsense, he puts in a shift, he tries hard and he seems to at least try and read what his team mates are doing. He looks vulnerable to pace and his passing is dodgy to say the least, but he at least tries which is why I think he is playing better than Matip. Even if Matip was fit I wouldn't put him in the team.

5.) 18 Dec 2017 06:51:56
If Defoe hadn't dragged his shot wide we wouldn't be saying this. We still have serious problems, they just weren't punished today.

{Ed001's Note - you can only think of one incident but that is indicative of serious problems? You really must be a joy to live with, damn you are a miserable bugger. We battered them 4-0 and still you want to whine like a spoilt child who has had their favourite toy taken away!}

6.) 18 Dec 2017 07:42:35
PutneyRed, we should have been 3 up when Defoe got his big chance. So in hindsight if both teams had taken their chance we would still have a 2 goal cushion over them. You are making a big deal out of nothing.

7.) 18 Dec 2017 07:49:57
Sorry ed, I probably didn't communicate well (I had only just woken up) .

I'm referring to the posts above suggesting that Lovren and Klavan are a solid CB pairing. I don't think they are and I don't want to rely on them any longer than we have to.

Didn't mean to take anything away from the performance yesterday, we were excellent.

{Ed001's Note - how is giving up one chance in 90min showing they are not solid? You are making no sense and just picking at things for the sake of it.}

8.) 18 Dec 2017 08:04:06
You mean he Defoe chance where Gomez played him onside?

I think you're clutching at straws trying to blame that on Lovren or Klavan. Though i do think Lovren should've played to the whistle as he stopped and put his arm in the air for offside. Gomez was at fault though. He dropped without communicating.

He's still a kid though so he will make the odd mistake. It's up to the analysts and the coaches to point it out to him so he can learn from it. Lovren, Klavan and Robertson all held their line to perfection.

Anyway, if you still think it's their fault, I'm not really concerned about conceding one major chance away from home to one of the most attacking teams in the league. If Salah had taken his chances we'd have been 5-0 up by the time Defoe hit the post. It's all ifs and buts. They don't matter. We won 4-0.

9.) 18 Dec 2017 08:13:04
Putney, if you only picked out one incident (btw, Wiji was at fault for losing the ball stupidly in midfield) out of 90 minutes as indicative of serious problems then for sure, you are really scraping underneath the bottom of the barrel to find something negative to say. I normally love your posts BUT this one is way of mark. Cheer up, man. We won, scored goals, clean sheet and all the boys played well. Why so negative?

10.) 18 Dec 2017 08:34:30
Guys, behave, of course I'm not using that chance as my one example that we have serious problems in defence, we all know that we have serious problems.

My point, however badly articulated, is that if that goal went in the talk on this post wouldn't be about how good Klavan and Lovren are it would be 'good team performance but I still think we need a new CB'.

I hate over praise as much as I hate over criticism. Klavan and Lovren have been doing a decent job but if the right CB is available next month I want us to buy him because we are in a fight for the top 4 and CB is one of our main weaknesses.

I apologise if right after a good win is the wrong time to make this point but it doesn't make the point wrong.

11.) 18 Dec 2017 08:48:07
Klavan is out no 1 CB for me, they all have weaknesses who doesn't, but for me, he's got the most heart, most likely to stick his head, leg, body on the line, and probably the strongest. His lack of pace is his issue, so why not give him a chance with Gomez?
Matip has to go for me, too lazy, slow and not turned up at all this season. Lovren has had moments, but he seems to be able to keep fighting.

12.) 18 Dec 2017 09:51:47
I agree with Putney.

I think people have misunderstood him there. Klavan and Lovren are doing well no doubt but we should not let this good run of form mask the need for a centre back.

Surely we all agree with that?!

13.) 18 Dec 2017 10:11:14
Putney is a great contributor, usually very positive, and i do understand his point. Its still all "Ifs and buts" though. If both teams had scored all their chances i think we'd have won about 18-3!

Putney, your post on Chamberlain was awesome so please don't take it personally.

As you say Keith, we still need a new centre back regardless!

14.) 18 Dec 2017 10:38:30
if defoe's goal went in, we'd be in typical irrational meltdown about the defence. again completely missing that the opposition had free reign running towards our goal with our defence caught between going for the ball and tracking the run. that kind of situation catches out the best defences and often it is simpply a matter of an individual making a good read to intercept or simply having the pace to make up the ground.

Putney is right tho, the criticism would be all over lovren and klavan had that goal gone in.

15.) 18 Dec 2017 12:57:58
Regardless of yesterday, our centre half's are just not good enough, and it urgently needs addressing over the next two transfer windows. Fair enough, there's no need to keep highlighting there faults, but they eventually are all going to have to go.

16.) 18 Dec 2017 12:58:52
As a footnote, definitely not VVD. Most overrated CH in the league.

Why would we sell if dembele came? 4 forward for 3 positions just means 1 gets rested each match. do the maths, each would get the 4th game as a rest. thus not wearing them out.

To be fair Nathan AKe was on that list as well. Things don't always work out.


{Ed002's Note - The list was written when the players were young and unknown. Ake is a full Dutch International and a starter in the Premier League, he has a Europa League winners medal etc.. This type of post is a demonstration of why it is pointles sharing anything interesting with the Liverpool supporters to be honest. I'll avoid it in the future.}

The thing is every midfielder knows they have to perform as there is someone to replace them. It's call competition for places.
I hope gini stays.

A year or two training with one of the best keepers in the world will do someone who can play into late 30s no harm.
Alison was a number 2 just 2 seasons ago.

Owen was only ever about pace. hoddle was spot on about him not being a natural finisher. and got pelters for it.

A nob end of the truest sense and I for one can't even watch that cup final, as I feel tainted and dirty by him.

Main difference this season is that behind them they have a world class keeper. the assurance, organisation and communication he will bring will be a major improvement.
