Hey EDs. Would you have any information surrounding Naby Keita? I'd be interested to know how the signing is viewed within. Is he seen as a good purchase or poor.

Any activity in moving him on by the club or interested clubs looking to purchase.

He didn't seem to show enough for me compared to the billing. The permit stuff is laughable and we are not short of covering the midfield. Personally I hope to hear we are talking to clubs as he offers little compared to others that maybe purchased as an alternative.
In fact Ox looks twice the player and Naby right now would be lucky to get a bench seat.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - From my perspective it was not a good signing. Liverpool paid a significant holding fee for a tear and then returned to pay a significant fee and to find he had spent a uear behaving as a complete jerk and had got himself a very serious conviction. They will work out the English issue. I agree that AOC would be a more reliable option.}

21 Jul 2019 09:29:00
I feel if he doesn't make huge improvements this season he has to be moved out. If last year doesn't act as a learning curve for him then it would clearly show a major attitude fault. But personally I'm really optimistic that he can grow up and start to show the ability we know he has.

Big season for him though, make or break naby.

I wonder if Naby have had the chance to have his work permit sorted while of on vacation. Would be great to have him fully available for the coming season.

{Ed002's Note - He has to take and pass a test. Liverpool have already asked for an extension.}

Watched the boys against Dortmund. Only one game it was, but Kent simply isn't good enough for the first team yet. Wilson, on the other hand, looked an adequate understudy for the front three. Makes me feel less anxious about our lack of activity in the market, to be honest.

Agree6 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 13:09:00
Mate, it is not like City have been very active either.

We are not going to sign any players which are deemed for a starting place.

Think our fans need to accept that fact.

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 13:21:25
Whilst there is no doubt our squad is strong and excellent, it simply has too be said it's not as strong as man city's, city were better than us last season an they have strengthened there weak areas, this cannot be said of us, if we are going to put faith in the likes of ryan Kent, Adam lewis, larouci, these lads have not played 1 minute of prem footy and it's a whole different ball game too wat there used too, I am more comfortable with harry wilson an brewster as I believe they have the mentality too adapt, I just think with city going from strength too strength as champions league winners we could at least add 2 players too make our weak areas stronger. We have said we want too win the league but we won't do that by standing still.

Agree6 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 13:28:43
Were City better than us by winning the league by 1 point Hailstones?

Very fine margins and veriables.

I have said for a long time now we should be keeping Harry wilson, if we want to compete for all competitions he's the sort of kid we want in the squad. However watching last night's match I thought he was out of his depth, he doesn't press with the intelligence of the others. Needs to work on this if he is to stay!

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 14:01:01
Look at the games against us they were better, even at anfield we were lucky too get away with a point with mahrez missing a penalty, let me ask you this do u think our squad man for man is stronger than theres? , do u think city are stronger than us in our weak areas e. g cover at left an right back, creativity in midfield, depth in attack with world class talent . Ask yourself that an think are we really strong enough too go one better .

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 14:11:28
City are a different team Hailstones.

They won the League by 1 point.

To suggest they were better than us when we had our best ever season in the EPL and pushed them till the very last game?

Variables.

You can go on abot the games we drew. We lost one match the whole season. Pretty much scored as much as City, conceded less.

They beat us while losing more matches than us.

We proved that we are a match for City, irrespective of them being Champions winning by 1 point while the rest of the League sat back and watched.

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 14:23:14
Ok then max your opinion is this current squad does not need cover or strengthening, let's see how the season pans out I hope our squad is strong enough and it would be ideal but I ain't buying it . don't forget we play fifa world club, we have too fly round the world mid season also all the cups + European competition we will need too be hitting the ground running each time, let's see how we deal with it .

Agree1 1Disagree

20 Jul 2019 14:33:41
I never said we do not need cover Hailstones.

Do you realise that the players we target have expectations?

I am pretty sure you have seen Ed002 mention that we have had discussions about Pepe.

There is a reason why we will not blow a record transfer fee on Pepe as he will not sign unless he starts.

Do you understand that?

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 14:59:15
I totally understand that, but in order too get stronger than last season and we have said we want too win the league and fight on all fronts, I am not saying spend the earth on players I am saying be creative and bring personnel who can challenge and step in as an when required we only need 2 or 3 maximum too do that, FROM A POSITION OF STRENGTH WHY NOT GET STRONGER.

20 Jul 2019 15:14:37
Soon as I see "city have" I have this boredom come over me and scroll to the bottom only stopping to read Ed's comments (bravo ed25 made me chuckle as usual) seriously we are liverpool who cares what city are doing watch your own team and support them and hope we are top by the end of the season we have a full season of fab kieta ox Gomez and if salah stays he won't be starting the season stressing over his shoulder seriously enjoy the ride we will sign who is good for the team maybe building the youth up now we have a competitive team for years to come.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 15:16:46
Hailstones, do you reckon the club have not been working on targets?

In all honesty you are in la la land if you believe the club LFC do not want to sign players.

As I have stated, the players we have targeted like Pepe, which we have had discussions with even Cornet.

You are clutching at straws if you keep on believing Klopp is not willing to add players.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 15:27:45
I didn't once say he doesn't want too sign players, the thing that concerns me is having faith in certain players who will not take us onto the next level and carry on winning trophies an leagues .

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 15:31:18
Surely if we want to maintain our elite status we loan kent and wilson to leeds under biesla and sign havertz? Job done.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 15:43:55
Having faith in certain players Hailstones?

What do you mean? Which 1st team starters do we need to get rid of and then finding new homes for Lallana and Shaqiri.

Maybe you do not grasp the current size of our squad and that adding new players is should not be about filling spots in the squad unless it is on based on improving our first team.

Who would you like us to add to improve on Origi?

20 Jul 2019 16:01:39

Citeh got one more point than us in the EPL but we got number 6.

Ed002, our most reliable source has said he expects a vesatile forward to arrive at Anfield. Please forget about Pepe.

Please be patient. Oh and this player will not be on the level to replace Mane, Salah or Firminho.

End of the story and if that players does not arrive, please do not throw your toys out of the cot.

Do people not realise city have lost kompany? A massive reason behind them winning the league . Also David Silva and aguero are another year older and will start to fade away . Sterling will not have the same impact this season as last in my opinion . Our players are in their prime and youthful . City are ageing.

You hit the nail on the drogie, I don't want our champions league win being a flash in the pan, it would be nice too go for being the best team in the league and dominate, we have never been better situated since we last won the league .

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 18:21:49
I love liverpool, i have all my life. But the answer is yes. City were better than us - in the league. To debate that fact verges on the ridiculous. Especially as it could be said that city won it by beating us at the ethiad.

On the other hand, we were clearly better in europe. Partly because liverpool are a huge club with a proud history. City are a big club, of course, but they don't have a history of big european nights like we do.

If you need proof of these things look into the trophy cabinets of both teams.

I will say this though. Leicester won the league a few years ago and i don't think any of us would say they were the best team in england. Maybe they were. Maybe they just hit a perfect chemistry that season.

But i wouldn't worry, there really wasnt much in it.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 18:32:05
Pep has won the league an we haven't for nearly 30 years, can you think of the last team that has won champions league but not won their own league for 30 years, I can't . All this being said our club is so special we can get away with it .

20 Jul 2019 19:21:26
Hailstones - bringing in new players is not the only way to improve a squad. Age is a massive factor and liverpool are moving into their prime. City on the other hand do have some older players and have of course lost kompany. Confidence is another big factor and ours has gone way way up after no6.

I think we have been spoilt regarding signings in recent windows. 75mil on a cb, 50 odd mil on a keeper. 50mil on a cm 40mil on another. We don't have the same financial resources that city do. Thinking we can match them pound for pound, signing for signing is just wishful thinking.

At the end of the day, we DID challenge. There are tonnes of examples of new signings actually having a detrimental effect on a team. We have an excellent defence, one of the worlds best. We have a wealth of resources in midfield, different horse for different courses. And we have possibly the best front 3 on the planet, certainly in England.

So why get stressed over some forward cover? Or a lb who won't play much? Yes, robbo needs pushing, but he strikes me as a highly motivated lad and quite humble with it.
And origi is a legend! Look what he did for the team last season. I don't think his ability is in question anymore. he's no henri but he is easily good enough to cover our forwards and he is good enough to sink a confident Barcelona. I don't know how you can question his ability.

3 years ago chelsea won the league in magnificent style and everyone expected them to win it the next season. I don't think they made the europa league. There is no guarantee that city will make 98 points again, there's no guarantee that we will either. Ill be surprised if we do get near that tbh.

20 Jul 2019 19:59:19
Max, City have just won back to back titles, with the FA cup and league cup to top off last season.

Forget the CL, they have won more trophies in 2 seasons than we have in 10 years

When you consider how successfull Fergie was with United, his European success was not great. So I’m afraid your CL statement is pretty poor mate.

If you think we’re capable of challenging on all four fronts then you’re deluded mate.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 20:09:05
Hailstones is right, you always look to improve when you are on top as that is how you stay there. let's not pretend Liverpool are so good that there are no weaknesses to improve on. I am talking about just 1 or 2 players, of which I still expect to arrive before the window shuts.
Man City were not lucky, they were just outstanding over an entire season with an amazing points total and a superior squad to Liverpool. City will be favourites to win again this season and I would hope Liverpool improve their squad for the battle ahead.

Sorry 25 but it’s a name change with a huge injection of cash nothing else, just like the champions league is a name change along with the league cup.

If anything, it’s the sole reason United we’re able to “knock Liverpool off their perch “ - just ask Martin Edwards.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - i know its a name change drogie but its been 30 years of that trophy mate and thats far too long for a club like liverpool, so for the past 30 years you have been the same as everton mate...LOSERS in the title race and thats a fact..

Not disputing that 25 mate, we all go through a baron spell without winning the league mate, Chelsea went 50 years, City were 44 years, United 26 years and Everton 32 years.

My point being, you mentioned we hadn’t won the league since the inception of the premier league. All I hear is this this rubbish saying “ Liverpool haven’t won the Premier League “

Folk would be taken a lot more seriously if they purely said, Liverpool haven’t won the league for 30 years.

I mean, we’re record holders for the league cup, 8 times but not winning the Carabao cup makes us losers?

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 22:39:53
Sorry Acered, I do not agree with you nor Hailstones. I think there is just a lot of moaning going on cos Klopp will not do what certain people want. Hailstones and his like, want us to break the bank and sign say, Pepe for about 80m with NO idea how he will fit into the team cos he wants to start. If you want to sign a player for say 80m for him to sit on the bench (cos the front three start all the time), you are digging your own grave as a club.

Why? If that player isn't playing regularly and trying to pay that sum back in terms of starts and production, your investment is not working for you and in Finance, we call that dead money. Even Klopp said a player like Insigne (who would cost a tonne) said that he won't come to sit on the bench/ rotate YET some still moan needlessly about these things.

Referencing City all the time, is a dumb argument to make cos a) They can afford to to do that and b) Their star players like Sane, Mahrez, Jesus and even Gundogan, don't want to be on the bench and have been openly complaining about leaving if things don't change. Sane was close to leaving for Bayern already this season and we know Jesus is at his wits' end with being on the bench majority of the time. We cannot afford to do that at LFC with the way our finances are. The Ed's say this all the time BUT people act as if they don't know.

Ed02 has said that for us to sign top players in the first 11, someone has to leave YET people still moan about the bleeding obvious as if they don't know what the plan is. You may not agree with the plan but the premise and logic behind it is sound. But don't act as if you don't know what the plan is and then act shocked and moan cos Klopp is not doing what you want.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 23:01:54
City won the league but we won the champions league. That makes us even in my book.
Both could’ve been reversed with 1 decision going the other way too. Kompany could’ve been sent off against us (should have been) and the VAR goal for them against Spurs.
Point is the teams are so close it’s pointless arguing who is better. 1 moment in a season could’ve meant the trophies being dished out differently, that’s how close it is.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 23:08:56
Hailstones and Drogie your both correct.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jul 2019 01:55:26
I hate this notion that we were failures in the league last season just because city were better than us. Even though we finished 2nd, we lost 1 game and got an unbelievable 97 points. 28 of the last 30 leagues that tally would have convincingly won every title. We have to appreciate we are unlucky to have our strongest team in the same years as city have created the strongest ever PL performances.

We made huge ground up on a city team that did not weaken, we have a well settled squad with room to only get better, let's not compare us only to city's near unmatchable benchmark, they can very quickly drop that standard in the next year or 2 and we have a squad built already to only improve in the next few years. Positive times guys, bigger picture is exciting for us.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jul 2019 03:55:00
Ok so city are going to be without Kompany and possibly Sane. They have got Rodri to replace fernandinho long term.


We are looking for cover players i. e. an attacking option and an FB cover.

If we don't get either. We would be short on Cover. Clyne and Ox/ Brewster are the players Klopp seems to think as cover players. so unless we sell some one I do not expect incoming.

A. Lewis and Lachouri will replace Moreno.
Brewster has replaced Strud.

We will missing Ox Gomez Lallana for almost whole of last season. So when all fit our squad is actually Stronger then last season.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jul 2019 07:15:32
I think hailstones is right.

We need to sign players. The academy kids aren't good enough. They never play games so they will never be good enough because to get good enough you need to play. In fact close down the academy, we will save tons of money from not having one and we can just go all out and spend 300m every season even if our first eleven is good enough then we can have two teams of world class players half of which will be perfectly happy to sit on the bench all season and play 5- 10 games when a player is injured.

Just in case people are unsure that was all sarcasm.

The idea that we should have 3 or 4 world class players in every position is ludicrous. No team has ever done that. Even dominant teams from the past like Madrid, Barca, Milan, united did not have 15-22 world class players. They had 11 or less and filled their bench with youth players or decent back ups.

City also did this. People point to sane etc but ignoring the fact that those players are unhappy at city and want to leave city did not buy world class players for the bench. They were young understudies to older more experienced players.


There's no way a current first team international will come to Liverpool to sit on the bench for most of the season. Especially not foreigners, no matter how 'great and historic ' Liverpool is. We need to give this mentality up of thinking we are Liverpool and we are super special because even home grown players like Owen and macca can't wait to leave when they feel their career is stalling so why would foreigners trying to stay in their national team want to?

Whether we like it or not modern players feel entitled to play, especially when they have been bought for record fees so suggesting buying Pepe or another winger will come and happily sit on the bench is dumb.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 11:16:54
Ed, have we looked at or considered any player other than Ricardo Pereira for the duel RB/ LB cover? Do you think he is the type of player who would be happy to be cover? I appreciate that for this type of player to come in we would need to move Clyne on and one of the youth LBs.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Interest in Ricardo Pereira is long gone and I rather doubt he would want to sit on the bench. Some coaches won't even include FBs on the bench as others can adapt in the case of injury and they would not be needed for a formation change. Maybe Clyne will stay?}

20 Jul 2019 12:08:55
We do have any of Milner, Ox, Fab or even Wijnaldum who could cover full back in an emergency during a match, but if Lewis can step up and let Clyne run down his contract as a squad option then that could save going out and spending unnecessarily on back ups.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 11:52:52
Ed002, Clyne might stay but not sure he will make the bench this season when we have Milner, Gomez and Fab who can fill in at RB.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - That is my point. Why take up places on the bench if versatile cover is available.}

20 Jul 2019 12:21:54
And it’s a good point too Ed.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 12:32:04
Exactly Ed002.

I would like us to sign somebody as cover for LB but then again the players we have targeted for LB may want 1st team football so what then happens to Robertson?

Liverpool cannot go spend for the sake of adding players to make up numbers and singing players as cover substituting their wages for playing time and sitting them on the bench.

We have seen this blow up in our face when it comes to Grujic who is struggling to get a work permit! I am sure we are fitting the bill for at least half his wages while he is on loan.

Clyne is on holiday at Anfield and the club want rid. Perhaps we will sign another RB once Clyne leaves.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 13:17:54
When does clynes' contract end?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - june 2020 mate..

20 Jul 2019 13:36:30
If we want to maintain our top 2 position then we have to recognise that players like Clyne are a necessary evil. We need to have cover in depth for players who will only make the ocasional appearance (even onto the bench) . I’m fine with him being the cover squad position for the remaining year of his contract.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - players like Clyne aren't. Good professionals that can be used for more than just desperation cases are. Clyne should never be anywhere near Liverpool.}

20 Jul 2019 14:30:28
I feel sorry for a player like Grujic. We sined him on the basis of becoming a 1st team starter.

It has not panned out that way. We just cannot afford anymore signings like that.

This transfer window will perhaps show that LFC are done with wasting valuable resources.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 14:30:31
I agree Ed001 on Clyne mate not good enough to be back up, however he is still with us and getting plenty of minutes in preseason. Do you still expect us to bring in cover for the full back area?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it is trying to find players that are willing to be back up.}

20 Jul 2019 14:55:54
Clyne will leave end of this season once his contract has ended. I honestly do not see him getting any minutes unless all our options at RB are injured.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 15:33:03
Grujic will replace lallana next season and be back up for fab.

Agree1 0Disagree

I reckon clyne will leave this summer. Probably why he is getting the minutes, a shop window kinda thing.

But im not going to worry if he stays. He can play against the smaller teams i think and give trent a break. It'll be worrying if we get the injuries that would see clyne start as he is capable of a brain freeze. He can seem like he's playing well and then he switches off and the ball is in the back of the net.

{Ed025's Note - you will be in de-clyne by then mate.. :)

Robbie, no club puts a player out to play minutes (preseason or otherwise) just to put him in the so called "shop window". None of that stuff ha ever been true. It is just nonsensical jargon that people say that make no sense.

If a club wants Clyne, pretty sure they would have been scouting him WAY before this preseason. He is playing now cos well, he is a pro and has to do his job as in, play when picked. That's it. Now as per Clyne staying or going, he is poor at near all levels of the FB position and needs to be gone, as Ed01 eloquently put it.

RedWolf, as time runs out and teams'havent been able to get their preferred option, they may just decide to take a chance on an experienced England International right back and that's where the whole notion of the shop window comes into play.

Ed I want to ask a question about the Spanish press story that we are about to offer Salah new terms on £400K a week. I'm not asking about the validity of it as it is so outlandish it can't be and it would put us in a tight spot with regards to our other high end players. The question is why report it and what is the angle, could they be trying to unsettle him? It litteraly makes no sense since he signed new terms on mega money last year.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No they are not trying to unsettle him. They will have reported it as they have been told that is the case.}

We can’t be paying him that much Ed, Guaranga.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 11:47:47
Well one thing is for sure, with Salah about to sing a massive new contract, whoever wants to take him from us will be paying the highest premium.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 11:57:25
Perhaps the agent angling for a pay rise?, there's no way we are going to pay a player that much.

Agree1 0Disagree

If Ramsey is deemed to be worth 400k at Juve and Sanchez 350k at utd, God knows what Salah, Mane, Virgil et al. are worth.

Whenever I see the word guaranga I can’t help thinking of the very first GTA game.

Sanchez at £350k+ per week still makes me laugh. And they’re stuck with him as he’s become football’s equivalent of a Giffen good.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 12:40:35
Can only imagine what its like to be on 100k+ every week and still feel like you need more.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 13:11:47
How can Salah feel like he wants more money when LFC are securing future investment for a player which wants to leave?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - its called avarice mate..

20 Jul 2019 13:32:14
Nah Ed025, when another team approaches us for Salah on a lucritve contract, and let's face it he is a top player then we will be in the driving seat when it comes to negotiations. We do not need to sell Salah, just remember that.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - i know you dont max, but keeping a player who does not want to be there creates its own problems..

20 Jul 2019 14:59:01
If he came to me and asked for £400k per week I'd tell him where to shove it and go find a club who will pay it, plus the £150m transfer fee required. Thank you very much. He's good but that's an outlandish figure and will have an impact on every other good player at the club plus it will mean any quality player we want to sign will have that in mind as their starting salary. I'm also aware that this story is 99.9% likely to be untrue.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Jul 2019 13:54:48
If Salah wanted to go he would have been throwing his toys like Coutinho Ed025.

That is the difference. We know Salah wants to play for Real but at this point he has limited options so he will not be forcing a move unless another club to his prefernce puts up or shuts up.

Hope that clears the situation Ed025.

Salah is a beast, he is ours.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - i cant argue with that mate..

20 Jul 2019 23:00:42
I’d rather sell Salah for 50 million than pay him anyway near 400,000 a week wages. He will be easily replaced.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jul 2019 02:28:40
Not a chance that LFC with this current structure will even consider doubling salahs wage, he has 4 years I think left on his contract, already our top earner on 200k. If he wants that type of money he will need to leave. United have messed up with Sanchez, arsenal have messed up with ozil.

Once you set the paying rate that high you begin to create problems within the squad. When Ramsey sees ozil on that money he can then say that he deserves that too, rashford can ask why he's not deserving of Sanchez wage.

Our current situation is good, our first team players earn between 120 and 150k a week, very balanced and similar pay to each. I think firmino and VVD slightly more and salah the top at 200k. Mane only signed a long deal last year happily with only 90k. I like this structure, if any player wants to upset it he can get lost.

De ligt or mbappe would never happen if they can get silly money elsewhere. Madrid are stuck with bale because they paid him stupid money. Players hunger disappears when they get a contract that they know will never be topped. Sanchez ozil Ramsey bale, late 20s being offered 5 year deals on that money, that's when a player can easily relax and stop caring.

Agree0 0Disagree

Ed25, Salah leaving us does not depend only on him. He wants to play for RM and that is his business. That has nothing to do with the contractual commitment he has with us and he is intelligent enuff to know that. If he wanted to move at all cost, we all would have known about it. He is not angling for a move this summer so he will play out this season like he always has his last two season, killing it in the PL and CL. Next summer tho, things may be diff.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed025's Note - a lot of it is down to his agent redwolf, yet another greedy blood sucking leech who is taking money out the game that should be used to enhance grass roots football imo mate..
