Dream transfer:
Toby Alderweireld to partner VVD.
Jorginho in deep.
Pulisic as backup.


{Ed0333's Note - that dream transfer will be a very very wet one

1.) 31 Mar 2018 15:04:37
That's what we should be spending the coutinho money on. Toby.



18 Mar 2018 08:38:44
Firmino and Salah is like Liverpool and City, the exceptional form or the latter is taking some shine off the good season the former is having.




04 Mar 2018 10:47:21
Ox and Gini charging a packed defence does more to open the defence that the little magician's dribbling. Gini's done it once and Ox twice that resulted in goals.


1.) 04 Mar 2018 11:41:53
You need more than one type of tool in your box. What works in one game won't necessarily work in the next one.



03 Mar 2018 21:27:15
Klopp is definitely a coach who improves a team, while Mou and Pep just buy. Case in point the multitude of players that Mou let go that came good.


1.) 03 Mar 2018 22:02:41
Pep improves player.

2.) 03 Mar 2018 22:14:34
Pep is actually a very good coach who actually improves players as well so I slightly disagree there. Mou? Totally agree. JoHe's just Pulis with a fat checkbook.

3.) 03 Mar 2018 22:18:42
Mourinho is special god bless.

4.) 03 Mar 2018 22:34:03
Agree klopp (and his army of couches) improve players but we can hardly say he hasn't spent a lot of money.

5.) 03 Mar 2018 22:44:37
“and his army of couches”

😄 I think you’re giving too much credit to the furniture 😉.

{Ed025's Note - so-fa so good ron..

6.) 03 Mar 2018 23:13:30
Pepe spends lots of money but it's not like VVD, Firmino, Mane, Ox and Salah came here on frees. Can't both of them be top class coaches or do we always have to put LFC on a pedestal and not give credit elsewhere.

7.) 03 Mar 2018 23:14:11
Oh gosh Ed haha!

You can tell you’re struggling at the moment. What could be causing that? 🤔😉.

8.) 03 Mar 2018 23:26:12
😅haha sofa-king funny.

9.) 04 Mar 2018 08:46:24
Sure Jayden23, they cost money but we also sold players for incredible sums, no team in the PL has got so much money from player sales as LFC. So klopp thinks about minimizing costs as much as he can which is great compared to the 200 million £ net spend on transfer fees alone that Pep goes through every summer! If he is that good to develop players he wouldn't go through players like underwear until he finds those who are good enough and fit him! It's not like his signings are mind blowing either, their best players are players who have been there for a long time, David Silva, Kevin de Bruyne, Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany, . Laporte cost 12 million € less than van Dijk, the french John Stones (Another 50 million £) Out of all the signings he has made at Man City you'd argue Leroy Sane and Ederson are the only ones who have actually made a diffrence, Kyle Walker is English so get praise and credit regardless but he was replacing a finished player, not very hard to improve on that. To compare Klopp with Pep when it comes to develop a team is simply a joke, and i am not talking about their times here in England only either.

10.) 04 Mar 2018 09:45:51
Nostradamus some great points mate. But all I'm saying is it doesn't have to be one or the other. Klopp is exceptionally good and so is Pepe. Both sets of players seem to find another level whilst playing under them.

11.) 04 Mar 2018 10:20:14
And by the way mate Firmino was signed by Rodgers, i know it feels like he is a new player but Brendan never used him correctly in his preferred position.

12.) 04 Mar 2018 10:41:36
Klopp improved Firmino, Lallana, Salah, Can, TAA, and Gomez. He gave Karius exactly what he needed in taking him out of the limelight for a period while still giving him a run of games.
Be that as it may, he has made me into a believer.
On the issue of spending money, I will go with what ED002 says: forget the money.
Who will trade places with Arsenal even though they declared profit.



24 Jan 2018 11:30:12
Question for Ed001,
Top of the day to you. What is your opinion of strengthening further this January? Do we have the squad to stay top 4 and possibly win a cup (Champions League anyone)?


{Ed001's Note - we do have the squad to do that, but it would be a lot easier if we improved it. The midfield desperately needs improvement.}

1.) 24 Jan 2018 12:05:07
Midfield is the key area for me too.

I look at Milner and Wijnaldum and i honestly don't feel any confidence in them. With Can only showing up for games which will attract global interest (such as the City game) he will no doubt perform just fine in the Champions League when potential suitors are watching, but i have serious doubts in his commitment when we face teams like Swansea or Stoke.

I haven't completely given up hope that we may get Keita this month or even sign an additional midfielder nobody is expecting.

2.) 24 Jan 2018 12:11:16
Summer time - strengthen the spine of the team with 3 quality players, 4 if Karius isn't up to the job.

A new CB, DM/ CM and a backup or different type of Forward to what Firmino brings.
(I would like this backup/ rotating Forward to come in this window personally) .

3.) 24 Jan 2018 12:11:44
Is it as simple as paying £20m to bring in Keita? Or has that ship sailed for this window?

4.) 24 Jan 2018 12:54:08
City are walking the league.
They're trying to recruit with no major departures.
Man Utd are second. Strengthening.
Chelsea are third. Trying to target a big man. (I guess it's panicking but they know they need someone)
Arsenal. Lost a player of Coutinhos stature. Now they're recruiting. (Granted they're squad is in dire shape. but they're still looking) if they sort the defence then they'll be challenging top four.
They're not going to sign players like Auba, Mik and whomever else and not compete.
Tottenham have the depth in their squad to still challenge fourth.

We have let two (Normally first team starters) first team players leave.
We've strengthened the defence but the game against Swansea show we still lack composure and lose concentration.
If Klopp seriously thinks this squad can take us to top four he's mistaken.

Pep whose walking the league is even thinking this isn't won just yet.
I've tried to be understanding I really have.
We can't afford to waste this window.

5.) 24 Jan 2018 13:07:01
Who’s the second regular player that starts who’s left? Have I missed something?

6.) 24 Jan 2018 13:15:18
Why is it taking so long? This replacement should have been 99% in the bag, we knew he was leaving 12 months ago.

7.) 24 Jan 2018 13:51:30
Welsh. Its coutinhos shadow.

8.) 24 Jan 2018 14:08:41
I totaly agree with all what's said on here. Reality is we are not replacing him. Klopp knows best as he is our Manager, if we fail to finish top4 then Klopp carrys the can for not bringing in a player to strengthen.

Arsenal are about to bring in Auba and possibly another. Utd have Sanchez. Top3 are virtually done imo and we are playing for 4th spot with Spurs and Arsenal.

9.) 24 Jan 2018 12:57:48
Anyone got the guts to ask ed001 what we are all dying to learn lol, in responce to his reply to the OP. 🤔.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know, have they? :-P

10.) 24 Jan 2018 13:17:03
Ed001 who would you like to see come in out of players that are realistically attainable in jan.

{Ed001's Note - I would like us to go get Ndidi, but he is probably not going to be attainable in January, so why not Nampalys Mendy? Failing that, someone like Obiang would be a big improvement and provide some hustle and bustle and intensity.}

11.) 24 Jan 2018 16:05:02
Whats your thoughts on Abdoulaye Doucouré from Watford Ed1? I like Obiang and agree he would help no end.

{Ed001's Note - good player, excellent player in fact, but not attainable in January. If he was he would be the one I would go for, rather then Mendy or Obiang.}

12.) 24 Jan 2018 16:18:05
Well I certainly haven't ed lol. i've asked enough mate😂. Im just prepared to see what develops now mate on the final week, and have accepted we have our lot.

{Ed001's Note - but I don't know what the question is..... :-P

13.) 24 Jan 2018 16:30:42
Agree think he is a great player and could really add something to the midfield, doesn't get many of the plaudits that he deserves similar to Obiang in that sense.

Still some great options out there in so called lesser teams but the summer window will no doubt be the time to trade.

{Ed001's Note - sadly we will probably ignore them.}

14.) 24 Jan 2018 16:34:28
Milner as a centre midfield option makes me feel sick. He’s just not up to the job.

15.) 24 Jan 2018 17:00:05
Ok ed since you have forced me into it lol. Are we actually still trying to strengthen this window, if so who.

{Ed001's Note - hahaha we are but don't get excited, I don't expect much other than maybe another youngster. Klopp would rather wait for the right players than just buy for the sake of it, as he showed with VVD.}

16.) 24 Jan 2018 17:24:35
Cheers ed, that will do for me mate.

17.) 24 Jan 2018 17:56:48
and do you agree with that approach Ed1? personally I do, as much as I'd like us to strengthen our team with X player (s), I think it's dangerous to go and panic buy and get somebody who just isn't right for us. I'd rather us take the months from now until summer to look over what options we have who can really benefit the starting 11 and go for them in the summer.

{Ed001's Note - yes very much so.}

18.) 24 Jan 2018 18:08:31
Sorry ed a youngster for the academy/ U23's right.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate.}

19.) 24 Jan 2018 23:05:08
Milner, Is just getting on a little bit, Not the sort of creativity either. Puts in a good shift. Same with Hendo, works hard and is vocal but i always feel i want a bit more from him. So when you play them both together we can struggle to make things happen.

Gini i don't think has had the best season. But he's not playing the attacking role like he was at NC, so when we signed him i think a lot of us myself included, expecting more goals from him. I think he's a decent player though, not PC but decent but has gone missing this season in games.

Lallana has been injured so can't comment.

Ox i was never too much of a fan tbh, thought we should just give woodburn the game time. He impressed a lot in the city game but under performed against Swansea as did most of our team. Watching him against city he has it in him. Just can he do it consistently.

I really rate can, accept he has lapses in judgement but i just like how he drives and offers something a bit different from the other Cm we have, wants to move the ball forward more as appose to hendo. Though i know a lot of people are not a fan, Klopp not sold either by the looks of it. Which is fair enough He's the manager not me!

So we have decent players but given PC has left definitely room for improvement, we need more creativity and goals in the MF for sure!

I'm dreaming about Isco, but you have to question how he would cope switching from la liga to the prem.

Lemar looks a tidy player but we will see in summer what happens. Jan looks to be a finished window for us.

I'll have to search through the comments someone asked Ed2 to suggest a player, can't remember the context he might have been an attacker but after watching some highlights, i know YT always makes them look better he was infact a bit of a baller i think! If i can find him, ill reply to my post with him, would be interesting to see everyone else's opinions on who could maybe add some creativity to the MF!

waynechai, i thought i was the only one who noticed this trait. Coupled with his complete lack of pace, he should simply play the sweeper role and have VVD attack the ball.

For Ward and Wilson, i believe it was really poor man-management, even though i understand Klopp does not rate Wilson.

Real pity about Wilson, was interested to see what he could bring to the senior team.

And he was first choice. Seems almost like sabotage on klopp's part to the lad's career or at least poor man-management. You request that teams give your loans amble playing time, and Huddersfield who are willing to do so at the Premier league not doubt are not considered.


{Ed002's Note - I am sure it wasn't deliberate.}

Does it matter who he replaces? If he is Klopp's first choice, then he knows how to use him.

I am taking anything away from his attacking intent, but our forward line is just not tall enough for crosses,

Which changes would you make to the midfield? Who can give us that spark of creativity?


{Ed001's Note - it is not creativity we are lacking, it is intensity. We need to drop Wijnaldum, he takes too many touches while moving nowhere. I would swap him for Lallana, who takes too many touches but at least he is moving with the ball usually and so moving the defence around ahead of him.}

A bad day in the office for the boys, poor pass completion, lack of urgency, but the most damning aspect was that no one (not even Firmino/ Ox) had a go at the opposition, all were trying to out pass them. I only remember Mane having a go once through the middle and he won a free kick, imagine if similar runs were made.
