West Ham seem to be building a pretty decent team, our first game of the season might not be so straightforward. Especially with players returning from World Cup duty.

Anyway, Lucas is sheer class. He posted a thank you and good luck message to Felipe Anderson, wishing him all the best in the league except against "my Liverpool".

He truly is an adopted Scouser, just like Kuyt, Garcia and Agger.

Yeah but not just going to click straight away. The midfield is still weak and fabianski in goal is hardly de gea. Full backs are poor. Just an average team thinking because they have spent money there buying quality 🤣🤣.

2.) 15 Jul 2018 15:10:39
They do ths every season buy a new squad.

{Ed0333's Note - I think the OP’s point Tim that this year west ham are doing a better job at recruitment. Pellegrini is no mug. I have love for the guy I hope he does well although west ham were a curious choice for Manuel. But I suppose if you dangle a carrot big enough....

3.) 15 Jul 2018 15:22:43
If we get all our targets they have no chance!

Alisson/ Karius
A. Arnold/ Gomez
Lovren/ Matip
VanDijk/ Klavan
Robertson/ Moreno
Fabinho/ Henderson
Keita/ Milner
Fekir/ Lallana
Salah/ Shaqiri
Mane/ Chamberlain
Firmino/ Sturridge.

It worked well for Everton last year.

5.) 15 Jul 2018 15:32:50
That would be the best "2nd 11" i've ever seen at Lfc VakPa.

6.) 15 Jul 2018 15:36:53
Even if we don't get Alisson or Fekir VakPa, we'll still do them. Their team need time to gel and even then not much will change for them, they haven't really bought top quality have they I mean they went and bought Wilshere! fingers crossed he plays when we play them.

7.) 15 Jul 2018 16:27:16
I'm just amazed they're even spending that much dosh. I was convinced it'd be another summer of excuses for the fans to stomach, so fair play. I don't necessarily think it'll see them pushing towards the top, just closer in the right direction. Burnley finishing where they did and the league finishing as two clear divisions shows there is definitely room for a couple of teams to really push to be the best of the rest and build from there.

If Silva and Pellegrini hopefully come in and show the rest of the lower teams that there is more than one way to play, ie actually trying to be proactive and not settle for draws, it'll only be good for the league. There was a lot of rubbish last year which really did not give credence to the 'best league in the world' tag that is bandied around so much.

8.) 15 Jul 2018 17:04:41
When has anything in the prem been straight forward!? When will we learn!?

9.) 15 Jul 2018 17:50:57
Lucas is awesome, didn't he sort out our Champions League final training facilities? What a legend he's turning out to be, and from where he was after a year at the club it's a true testament to his character.



22 Jun 2018 20:57:27
Shaquiri with a 91st minute winner sign him up ASAP 😂😂

Knew he was muscular but didn't realise that he was built like a short Ronaldo 🤔.


1.) 22 Jun 2018 22:00:35
Like Ronaldo if he was a hobbit.

2.) 22 Jun 2018 21:46:54
I quite like him as a player but i find the way he distanced himself from his Stoke team mates last season dispicable. We don't need that in our team. If half the onion is rotted, it's a rotten onion.

3.) 22 Jun 2018 22:00:35
Like Ronaldo if he was a hobbit.



22 Jun 2018 02:12:27
Away from the usual transfer speculation, I'd like to wish Emre Can all the best in Juventus. He may be slow and and limited at times but he always gave it his all. Never moaned despite being played all over the pitch. Especially under Rodgers.

He was instrumental alongside Henderson in our ill-fated run-in to Basel and even played through injury in the last few weeks of the 16-17 season, helping us secure Champions League football once again.


1.) 22 Jun 2018 05:37:15
I certainly always liked Emre, and that goal against Watford, WOOF!
But a £14 million signing on fee, plus wages of £220,000 per week?
I really don't think he'll be missed that much and it makes me happy to say that. I'm sure he'll do very well in Italy, all the best to him. Now, moving on.

2.) 22 Jun 2018 06:41:20
Agree JM, that's crazy money. I thought he was leaving as he thought he wouldn't be a regular starter, but it seems the money was a big factor. Good luck to him, as I don't think he will be missed.

3.) 22 Jun 2018 09:06:46
220k a week? i thought it was 4m a year?



07 Jun 2018 16:34:38
I'm not saying we'll sign either Alisson or Oblak but I'm a little curious as to why they'd want to leave their respective clubs.

Alisson has established himself as Brazil's no. 1 after a fine season with Roma where they made it to the semi-finals of the Champions League. Roma has a really talented squad but are still way behind Juve and Napoli so I understand why he'd want to leave for trophies/ joining a big club etc.

Oblak is a curious one. Does he want to leave Atletico and if so, why? He's playing behind a solid and settled back 4 brilliantly organised by a dynamic and passionate manager in Simeone. They have consistently challenged for the league title and European competitions in the past few seasons.

Can any Ed confirm or deny his interest in leaving Atletico (doesn't have to be to us)? The only reason I can think of is wages but even that seems unlikely.


{Ed001's Note - money is not that good at Atleti compared to what he could get at the likes of Chelsea plus he would get a large signing fee.}

1.) 07 Jun 2018 17:46:53
And with Alisson ed, is it still the money involved making it a tough one to get done.

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

2.) 07 Jun 2018 18:07:58
Lol why would anyone move to England if not money? A physical league and poor weather added with physical huff and puff football! Except Liverpool and City who does actually play FOOTBALL!
You double the wages and even Messi would move lol.

3.) 07 Jun 2018 18:39:26
Liverpool will sign Alisson for around £55m.

4.) 07 Jun 2018 18:51:22
Is it transfer fee or wages Ed?

{Ed001's Note - we haven't agreed a fee, so it couldn't be wages yet mate.}

5.) 07 Jun 2018 18:51:39
Sibsama. Maybe they wanna leave to join the greatest club in the world. A club that is going in the right direction under a fantastic manager.

6.) 07 Jun 2018 18:59:23
Harry with the Xenophobia again. So anti English it's unreal.

7.) 07 Jun 2018 19:23:41
What's xenophobic about Harry's post? I thought it was quite funny.

8.) 07 Jun 2018 19:35:57
Sorry to ask ed and open this up. I appreciate if you don't want to answer or even reply. Obviously im only asking because im an avid fan wanting us to move forward with the best players we can get. Are we anyway near close to reaching the fee needed?

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea how I would even measure it, let alone if we are or not.}

9.) 07 Jun 2018 19:48:18
Harry, I disagree.

City, Liverpool, Spurs, Man Utd, Burnley, Crystal Palace, Brighton, Huddersfield, Newcastle and Bournemouth all played good football the season just gone. Good football is not just an attacking game. Also, playing defensively doesn't necessarily mean aggressive "huff and puff" football. Good football is if you get the most out of your players and achieve what you should be or more. Arsenal played attacking football but it wasn't good because they got smashed on the regular. United played defensively but it was clearly good because they got to a final and finished 2nd.

There are a handful of managers who don't cover themselves in glory by treating it like MMA. Warnock, Allardyce and Pulis are probably the biggest culprits.

You would do well to remember that we lost the European Cup final to a Spanish team managed by a French legend, and they deployed absolutely disgusting tactics which hospitalised two of our players.

10.) 07 Jun 2018 19:49:11
Bit of an over reaction there Dexter. Think about it. If a Brazilian could get the same money in Brazil as he would in England where do you think he would choose to play?

11.) 07 Jun 2018 19:54:04
You mean what is xenophobic about saying 'why would anyone move to England if not money? ', along with repeated abuse of Liverpool's English players, any English players Liverpool are linked with and the England national team.

12.) 07 Jun 2018 20:20:00
People don’t chose EPL out of any love lol! It’s pure money and what kind of money? Insane wages and huge signing on fees!

I agree with you but we don’t rate any of those teams, Do we? I have seen posters abusing all those teams when they park their bus 😂😂😂.

13.) 07 Jun 2018 20:52:26
To be fair to Dexter, it is Harry's repetitive abuse towards all things English that makes it seem worse. He will literally blame a lack of ability on a player being English without any elaboration.

In isolation, what he's said isn't that bad. Regular readers will know that Harry has a very specific agenda against England as well as its players and coaches though. I don't know if xenophobia is the right term. It is very rude though.

14.) 07 Jun 2018 21:05:13
Harry don't confuse people's emotional highs immediately after being held to a 0-0 by a flat back ten, with their actual opinions.

Liverpool played exactly the same way as United do now when we had Rafa.

For the record, i don't think you are xenophobic. You might want to explain yourself better when criticising English players though. And leave out their nationality. It has no bearing on them as footballers or people. It will stop people from getting the wrong impression of you.



29 May 2018 09:39:33
We now have KFC in midfield: Keita, Fabinho and Chamberlain. That's a finger lickin' good midfield. With Hen-derson potentially cooped up on the bench (still rate him) . Not to forget Mo Salah running down the wing, it's a mouthwatering prospect for the Reds.

I'll see myself out.


1.) 29 May 2018 10:02:51
Groan, that's terrible.
Besides, it's quite likely that Chamberlain will slip down the pecking order now.

2.) 29 May 2018 10:03:11
Thoroughly enjoyed that.

3.) 29 May 2018 10:08:54
We have KFF in the midfield
Keita / Fabinho / Fekir.

4.) 29 May 2018 10:19:49
Harry - we haven't actually signed Fekir. We may not sign Fekir.

5.) 29 May 2018 10:37:21

Did you see Fabinho coming mate? I am 100% certain we will sign an attacker to replace Coutinho and I put my money on Fekir. Klopp likes him and he will get him unless the player refuses to join us.

6.) 29 May 2018 11:04:27
Lloyd, I really don't think Chamberlain will go down the pecking order to quietly mate. For me this season he has been one of the stars once he found his feet and I think a lot more to come.

7.) 29 May 2018 12:08:11
Oh, I totally agree. It was just a chance to use the word 'pecking' to fit in with the chicken puns :)

8.) 29 May 2018 12:09:38
Go on the Harry, put some money on it.

The fact is that we haven't signed Fekir yet, and plenty of people were just as confident (whether they had reason to be or not) about Lemar, Keita and VVD playing for us all year last year. For the decades that I've been a liverpool fans 90% of the fanbase have been convinced by overwhelming media noise that player x or y is coming to Liverpool and yet they never do. There is such a massive list of these examples - from Texiera right through to Heinze - and we never seem to learn.

Count on a player when he puts on a shirt. Until then, Fekir is a Lyon player.

9.) 29 May 2018 12:23:51
Get Lucas back and we can have the KLF.

10.) 29 May 2018 13:01:39
Fekir said after the world cup he will be dealing where he is going to go so in july we will know but hope he is coming here!

You can't play the same players in every single game without them suffering a dip in form or getting fatigued. And what about long term injuries? You never know what could happen in football.

After Can's back and Ox's knee injuries, we were short in midfield and limped over the line in the race for Top 4.

It's not just about having a strong XI. You're right, it's about having strength in depth. Ox is probably out till the end of the year and I reckon Klopp will rotate Keita, Fabinho, Fekir, Gini, Hendo and Milner (I hope he stays) .

It took a while for Ox to get into his groove and find his place in the Liverpool side. He eventually went on to play a crucial role in the road to Kiev.

Nothing wrong with allowing Fabinho time to settle in with our playing style and Klopp's demands. We have strength in depth in midfield and defense. We don't need to throw him into the deep end.

No need to overreact and throw your toys out of the pram. We have 5 senior centre backs plus Phillips. That's 6 options for 2 positions. Yes we're unlucky with injuries but all clubs go through this at some point.

Evidently Klopp and his team did not deem signing a defender a priority, choosing to strengthen the weaker parts of our squad instead.

Look at United's pursuit of a centreback. Alderweireld, Maguire, Mina, Boateng. None of them were signed. With the World Cup and a shortened transfer window, there wasn't a lot of time to make loads of signings, plus having to gel them into the squad and get everyone back up to speed and full fitness.

It seems like there are not a lot of top quality centrebacks out there for sale. The ones that are available are way overpriced and just not worth the money.

If we had signed Vida instead of Fabinho or Shaquiri or Alisson, fans like you will still find some fault and pick out something to moan about. How about we just look forward to the season ahead and enjoy the game against West Ham? It's a season with lots to be excited about.

Cheers mate, although you probably might want to try to beat us at Goodison before even dreaming of winning at Anfield lol.

Think Silva's a good fit for you lot. If he can get Mina and Bernard in and sorts out the defense, Everton might just crack the top 6 this season. Chelsea and Arsenal are unpredictable this season.

What I like the most about Shaqiri is that he can play anywhere across the front 3. Good cover/ rotation option for Bobby, Mane and Salah.

Bobby was way off the pace and I was surprised that he started. Since it was his first game back, I thought he should have gotten a cameo off the bench.

Keita was a bit tentative and sluggish in the 1st half but grew into the game. Can't expect him to be at 100% after that neck injury. Hopefully both of them get back up to speed in the next week or so.

We have a great squad with strength in depth all over the pitch. Absolutely buzzing for this season!
