And there it is. I see in a recent interview with The Redmen that Lijnders himself has taken "credit" for the inverted full-back tactics. Apparently Klopp was hesitant but Lijnders had a strop until Klopp relented.

Honestly I'm glad to see the back of this megalomaniac. I have a lot of emotions about the Klopp era but one of the more negative ones is "what if? " What if Klopp didn't have this clown in his ear, muddying his ideas? Would we have won more? No wonder Buvac left.

He has a point about the midfield being overran we were getting killed on the counter once we lost Bobby and gini, would of just been easier to go 3 at the back like Amorim or xabi as that seems to be the meta tactic in this era.


2.) 21 May 2024 17:27:37
Even at the send off I found him annoying. Jumped up. Time will tell, I guess.


3.) 21 May 2024 18:16:47
The fella would get up on himself if he could turn quick enough.


4.) 21 May 2024 18:28:58
You are children.

You’ve never been to training, never seen the dynamic and never interacted with any of these people and have decided to service an agenda to come out with this utter bilge.

Most top sides now try to invert fullbacks. Until 2 months ago it was an absolute success for us. We won a cup, we had 7 points robbed off us by awful officiating and you’re spouting this inane nonsense.

Lads, don’t breed.


5.) 21 May 2024 19:14:17
The thing is Why0why that regardless to what you think about Pep he has come out repeatedly on multiple platforms to make it clear how important he has been to our success. That isn’t an agenda on anybody’s part pointing that out, that’s simply a statement of fact.

If you listen/ watch the recent “reds roundtable” with him, Klopp, Alex inglethorp, Cody and Harvey he does something similar there. He is talking about the relationship between the fans, the team and the manager and he starts says “you where able to” (to Klopp) and quickly changes that to “we where able to” mid sentence. Fella can’t help himself.

I thank him for being part of the success and I wish him well but I’m not sad he’s going. I had more than enough ego with Rodgers at the helm.


6.) 21 May 2024 19:40:14
And yet Klopp clearly listened to him. Strange thing for a successful manager to do if Ljinders is "a clown" isn't it?

At the end of the day, if Ljinders' tactics were flawed, doesn't the buck stop with Klopp for going with them instead of saying no or sacking him and getting another assistant?


7.) 21 May 2024 20:30:31
And how do you know the changing it to ‘we’ rather than ‘you’ isn’t because Klopp has told them to speak like that as they are a team and it’s not just about Klopp. I can sort of see what people mean with Linders but Klopp made the final decisions. He comes across ok on the video with the 6 coaches on you tube. Plus his English isn’t perfect so all this he said we and not you is just r language not ego. Anyway if the guy took the training and was an integral part of the tactics he deserves some praise not just criticism.


8.) 21 May 2024 22:05:01
Some people don’t like Lijnders and take comments or media quotes at face value with little or no attempt at placing the snippet they take to heart within any sort of context and thus an opinion is formed that is then presented as fact.

At the end of the day, who cares? Life goes on - the much praisedJurgen has gone, the much criticised Pep has gone. Whatever the dynamic the most exciting era for the club in 35 years or so is over.

Time to open up the next chapter. Here’s hoping that in 10 years time Arne is seem in the same light as Jurgen and held in the same esteem.


9.) 21 May 2024 22:13:19
I'm pretty sure we're allowed an opinion without you screaming at us and telling us not to breed. Get off your high horse.

Thank you Jurgen 😊.


5.) 28 Apr 2022 17:17:27
Apperently Mrs Klopp had a big say and told him he should stay longer. So thank you Mrs K!


6.) 28 Apr 2022 17:45:23
Should have signed him up to his 60th birthday.


7.) 28 Apr 2022 18:37:17
Ornstein is usually very reliable. Result.


8.) 28 Apr 2022 18:48:19
I can’t believe we are stuck with him for another few years. #overrated. I was hoping we’d get Rogers back in. Ah well.


9.) 28 Apr 2022 18:50:18
SOd Rogers, we need Woy back, when Watford go down. WARRAMMERR!


10.) 28 Apr 2022 19:31:15
Some more details on new Klopp contract by David Maddock:

*Agreed 4 year deal
*Replaces current deal, runs to 2026
*Option for longer
*Staff extend
*Backing for signings
*Wants Salah and Mane sorted

So excited I decided to have a quick tom tank, and that's how I got banned from starbucks.


12.) 28 Apr 2022 20:45:33
Would this make klopp the best paid manager in the world?


13.) 28 Apr 2022 21:26:25
“but since I'm here it feels like every day we come together a little bit closer, we understand each other a little bit better, we appreciate each other a little bit more”.

I love my family and employ lots of people and I have never been lost for words of encouragement . Never have I read such pertinent words. What a leader

We love Jurgen.


14.) 28 Apr 2022 22:00:19
Fantastic news, 4 more years of brilliant attacking football 😎.


15.) 29 Apr 2022 12:00:50
Brilliant news and if I was a betting man, Salah would be next.

{Ed0666's Note - I get that feeling also mate. It’s kind of scary the feel good factor emanating out of the club at the moment I just hope it continues for an extremely long time. FSG are playing a blunder at the moment everything they touch is turning to gold.


16.) 29 Apr 2022 12:15:19
There needs to be a song for Klopp's wife at the next home match.

{Ed0666's Note - I fully support that motion


17.) 29 Apr 2022 16:45:53
"Mrs Klopp Mrs Klopp running down the wing". oh wait 😅.


 

 

21 Oct 2021 16:19:55
Hey eds,

Do we still hold interest in Harvey Barnes after he signed a new contract? He's not been playing much recently so maybe Leicester might be open to letting him go?

Cheers.

Babbity Rabbity

{Ed0666's Note - Why would we sign him after he’s just signed a contract? His price would have increased no?


1.) 21 Oct 2021 16:51:09
Yeah it feels like the Harvey Barnes door shut with him signing that new contract, at least for a few years. He is a very underrated and exciting player though and one that I hoped Liverpool would chase.

{Ed001's Note - in what way is he underrated? Surely you mean overrated?}


2.) 21 Oct 2021 18:35:22
Depends if Leicester are open to letting him go Ed. They seem to be flirting with playing two strikers up front and wing backs at the moment which he doesn't really fit into.


3.) 22 Oct 2021 10:40:33
Rumours are that Newcastle are going to go for him as an achievable big money signing.

{Ed002's Note - Newcastle have not made any approach for Barnes. A third party advising the club has spoken with a few clubs about player availability but they have not at this time, and the club need to make ttwo appointments before anything is firmed up over targets.}


4.) 22 Oct 2021 19:17:14
Cheers Ed. Top knowledge as always.


5.) 22 Oct 2021 20:08:11
I mean he is underrated because he doesn’t have a sexy Brazilian name. He is a 23 year old English talent who is a first teamer for Leicester. I think he doesn’t get anywhere near the recognition he deserves. I’m not sure he’s even had an England call up. If you think he’s overrated Ed 1, I personally disagree.

{Ed001's Note - the media constantly big him up.}


6.) 23 Oct 2021 01:00:13
The only Harvey that we need is called Elliott.


7.) 23 Oct 2021 08:29:31
We want players with minimal drop in quality from first team. Know that’s hard with mane and salah but Barnes is too big a drop. Also likely to be over priced as English and signed new contract.


8.) 23 Oct 2021 14:24:25
Spot on, Ed. Barnes is not as good as he is being made out to be and not sure why that would be surprising since we all know young English talents are overrated by the English media.

I watched the Simon Jordan interview with Robbie Fowler a few weeks ago where he talked about how he disliked being called a "natural finisher" because it didn't represent all the hard work he had put into it. He also talked about how he was frustrated with his lack of managerial opportunities.

I have been anxious about our finishing for a while now. It has already cost us points and it could come back to haunt us if it doesn't improve. If Fowler's finishing can be taught, I think the club should look to bring him in on a consultancy basis like they did with the Danish throw-in coach while he is waiting for a new job as our forwards could really learn something from him.

Babbity Rabbity

1.) 02 Jan 2024 08:35:13
I think all the forwards are guilty of not finishing well it’s just the sheer volume of chances that gets us out of trouble .
I’m pretty sure things will click . Whether it be Darwin or Diogo or whoever I think the goals will come .


2.) 02 Jan 2024 08:58:55
They could also learn a few tips from Jota.


3.) 02 Jan 2024 09:35:39
You can't teach composure in front of goal.


4.) 02 Jan 2024 10:24:27
I reckon if Jota gets a run of matches starting as our central striker, and assuming we continue to dominate territory and possession as we have of late, he will bag quite a few goals.

Be interesting to see if the absence of Salah impacts chance creation, and to be fair to Nunez, a lot of his chances come from his own movement and pace, so it doesn't necessarily follow that all of the same chances would open up for Jota, but if Jota had been fit and starting for the last month, I reckon he'd have scored half a dozen in that period.


5.) 02 Jan 2024 10:35:52
@Flash according to Fowler himself, you can. As he said, the more you practice something, the easier it becomes. Nunez in particular needs to put in a few extra sessions. I firmly believe he can come good but I'm not going to keep making excuses for him. He needs to work on his finishing.


6.) 02 Jan 2024 10:41:06
Looking back over the first half of this season I noticed Some of Nunez's best games, goals and assists have come when he has been on the right side of our attack! 2 goals v Newcastle stand out and assists for Salah. Possible option for when Mo is at AFCON?


7.) 02 Jan 2024 11:03:17
Composure in front of goal is more about defeating your own anxieties than technique, it's about state of mind.
Which is why many players can look world class in training but fail to reach that level on matchday.
Regular practice wil obviously push him in the right direction but it doesn't guarantee he'll have the composure during a match to react te same way.


8.) 02 Jan 2024 11:28:56
Andy Cole, considered a great goal scorer, used to miss a hatful of easy chances every game. It was purely down to the amount created for him that he got the goals he did.

I don’t care how they go in as long as they do.


9.) 02 Jan 2024 11:35:35
Maybe he isn’t a very good coach?
The team will be fine. We’ve got goals coming from all over the squad.


10.) 02 Jan 2024 12:15:23
Nunez reminds me of Sterlings days at Liverpool time on the ball he gets caught in 2 minds but given a chance and there is no time to think just act it is a goal .
Unlike Sterling I think he has way more to his game and think he will come good but I’m also at peace that he may only ever be a 15-20 goal a season attacker but gives 110%
Think he’s averaging a goal contribution every 90 currently which isn’t bad at all we just know he could get that down to 45mins if he put away a few extra .


11.) 02 Jan 2024 12:16:14
@Flash if you're anxious about it, practice the situation as many times as possible so that it becomes second nature. This goes for many different situations as possible. Like how students take mock exams. Sure, the pressure isn't like the real thing but practising the process still helps.

@Faith a few additional sessions to give some pointers on finishing while he's out of work wouldn't do either party any harm. It's been the story of our season. We manage because we are creating so many chances. We aren't as clinical as we were a few years ago. We take about 20 shots before we get a goal while the opposition take 1 or 2 before they score.


12.) 02 Jan 2024 12:20:53
Nah, @Flash I disagree. You make very valid points as to why composure may not be able to be taught or can be difficult to learn. Look at Divock Origi, for ex. to support your point. The guy is naturally laid back wnd this helps him in such critical situations that allow him to remain inexplicably calm in high pressure moments of chaos hence, his ability to take the chances he took vs Barca, Spurs in the CL final and vs Everton and other clutch moments.

However you said it yourself, it is more defeating your anxieties hence, more psychological than everything else. So indeed, if you get the type of help you need to tap into that mental side of things that will allow you to take control of your mind and remain calm in critical moments and take a deep breathe before taking the chance (something you can practice till it becomes instinctive), you can be composed in front of goal and composure can be taught, I reckon.

Hypothetical question but if we were to sell Tsimikas, would we look to bring in another left-back or would we promote Luke Chambers who a lot of noise has been made about?

Babbity Rabbity

1.) 14 Apr 2023 14:17:00
Ideally, I would love to give chances to Luke Chambers and Owen Beck. Both have been great for the youth sides. Beck even won the PL2 player of the season last year, I think. I know he had a tough time on loans this year, but sometimes things just don't work out. Chambers on the other hand is playing regularly in the Scottish top tier and playing well too. Also, he's already a favourite of Klopp and Ljinders.
However, it is a risk obviously with bith these guys untested at this level. But seeing Robbo's fitness record and probably the signing of someone like Ndicka, I will be willing to take that risk.


2.) 14 Apr 2023 16:42:31
Agreed with KopArmy. I would give the youngsters a chance first to stake a claim on the squad before bringing another player in. That's the way it should be imo.


3.) 14 Apr 2023 19:01:36
Klopp really likes Chambers going by his interview comments on him. Beck isn't good enough in my opinion. Just a run of the mill youth player who will end up in the lower end of the football league with the likes of Herbie Kane and Cameron Brannagan.

It was Connor Bradley who won the PL2 player of the year. He is a right back and he is very good. Having a great season with Bolton and has all the tools to play at least in a mid table Prem team in the future. Maybe higher.


4.) 14 Apr 2023 19:03:16
Promote chambers, top prospect like Doak and Baj.


5.) 14 Apr 2023 19:26:47
Chambers and Quansah (and Davies I think) were part of the very successful England U-19’s that won the European Championship.


6.) 14 Apr 2023 19:31:30
Okay yeah, my bad. Bradley was the one. But as far as I remember, beck was a nominee too. Just shows that both of them were great. In fact, last season I liked Beck's cameos more than Bradley's performances. But this season One of them has exploded and one has found the going really tough. I hope both of them stake their claims though. I will be over the moon if we can field a closely first choice team (not the Aston Villa league cup tie) of 11 academy graduates even once in my lifetime.
For ex, in the next few years it could be:

Kelleher/ Pitaluga
Bradley/ Trent Quansah Chambers Beck
Elliot Baj Jones
Doak Stewart Musialowski.

Apart from Stewart, Beck, Musialowski, and Quansah I think a lot of them actually have a decent chance to be part of the first 11 in the near future.


7.) 14 Apr 2023 22:11:20
Tsimikas is better than Chambers and Beck being from h Greece rather than the academy shouldn’t really be a reason to pick one over the other.

Babbity I mentioned in another thread below mate I think a lot could depend on European qualification next season.

If we are literally only playing 1 game a week then how much rotation and rest would the squad actually need.

Some of the fringe players might have to wait for domestic cup games just to get minutes and again depending on how well we do in them there’s no guarantees there will be loads of cup games either.

Man City seem to be able to play and challenge on all fronts with a nucleus squad of around 18 first team players and then youngsters whilst Chelsea have struggled this season with a squad of about 40.

Not one size fits all. Our problem is we could have a number of players out injured at any one time.


 

 

23 Mar 2023 11:32:41
I'm expecting this to be an unpopular opinion and it's a little controversial but I actually think it's irresponsible and selfish of Henderson to have not retired from England by now. His body clearly can't handle starting 2 games a week and it's apparent to me that he's now at the stage of his career where we need to start managing his games. I get that every circumstance is different and there have been England midfielders before who have played well into their thirties but, let's face it, Henderson is no Gerrard or Lampard. These two guys were starting games for England in their mid-thirties. In Henderson's personal case, it seems to me that Southgate has never even rated him that highly. He snubbed Henderson for a less experienced Kane as captain, Bellingham and Rice are clearly first choice in midfield and Southgate has preferred the likes of Mount and even Phillips in the midfield pecking order. He is clearly in the squad to make up the numbers and as soon as a younger, more in-form player comes through, Southgate won't hesitate to drop Henderson. To me it is obvious that Henderson won't be in the Euros squad in 2024 at the age of 34 and he realistically should know this. That being said, if Henderson does know this, what is the purpose of him continuing to play for England? Is he trying to win as many caps as possible before he is inevitably dropped? If so, to me it is selfish and a pursuit of vanity as he isn't a player England rely on. I think he should follow the examples of players in similar situations like Milner and Vardy who knew they were only ever going to be squad players for England and they were a lot more important to their clubs than their country. Therefore they retired from international football in order to prolong their club careers and ensure they were as fresh for their clubs as possible. It is the responsible thing to do.

As Liverpool captain, Henderson is a very important player for us and is a difference maker when given adequate rest. But that is the key part. His games need to be managed. He's so much more effective when used carefully as opposed to when he's playing all the time. Therefore if we as his club do not feel we are able to get full-use out of him, why should he make himself available for extra England games? Take the fixtures after the international break. We have 3 difficult, crucial games against City, Chelsea and Arsenal that will define our season. I think it is unlikely Henderson will be able to start all of these 3 games, especially if he is to play at the best of his ability which we need him to be at. I think at this stage of his career he should be resting his body during the international break and should be preparing as best as he can for this important run-in. Instead he is on international duty and this will no doubt have an impact on his effectiveness in these games. Surely he has a responsibility, especially as captain, to ensure he is performing to the required standard before he makes himself available for international football? At the moment he is far from doing that. As captain of Liverpool, I feel he has an added responsibility to do what's best for the club and that is clearly prioritising club football and freeing up his schedule from international football.

Babbity Rabbity

1.) 23 Mar 2023 12:47:11
Hmm think it’s bit of both tbh he obviously loves playing for his country. not every Liverpool player or Liverpool fans hate England even tho a large section of the support do. personally if I had the choice and I could still get into the squad would never retire.


2.) 23 Mar 2023 13:10:29
It's not about hating England for me Kloppers. It's the fact that Henderson is incapable of being able to start regularly so if we have to use him carefully, why should he make himself available for extra games with England? Surely his first priority should be to play as many games as effectively as he can at club level? He is falling well short of this standard. It will not get better at his age unless he reorganises his schedule and makes more time for rest.


3.) 23 Mar 2023 13:17:40
He's entitled to make his own choices, I guess.

One thing you cannot accuse Klopp and Kornmayer of not doing is managing minutes. Bar Salah who plays when available, you could argue that we overmanage the players minutes to the detriment of form/ tactics at times.

Before anyone jumps down my throat about last season - yes we played all of the games possible, but if you look at the physical stats, only Salah (due to AFCON), Mane (due to AFCON), Trent and Diaz (a lot at Porto) were in the red zone. Apart from those four, the players legs were managed very well last season.


4.) 23 Mar 2023 13:29:20
I don't really care to be honest. I love what Henderson has done for us but the ship has sailed with him anyway. He only seems important at the moment because the alternatives are worse, in reality he offers nothing besides shouting, pointing and aimlessly hoofing the ball up in the air when he's under the slightest bit of pressure. Providing we do what we need to do in the summer, we shouldn't need to many games out of him next season.


5.) 23 Mar 2023 13:37:15
How many games a season does he play for England and how many does he play for Liverpool?
If he's playing for both then both managers must still think he is up to it.
Personally, I don't care if he doesn't play for England again, though.


6.) 23 Mar 2023 13:46:42
Now this post is spot on. But we do miss his shouting and screaming when he is not playing. No one else seems to give a toss when Hendo is absent.


7.) 23 Mar 2023 13:47:33
Thomas, I agree that we should have been planning for life after him next season instead of dishing out the big 4 year deal. His physical decline is a real problem for us. He shirks out of challenges, probably due to trust in his own body, and he can’t change direction, which critical for a midfielder.

We need to move on.


8.) 23 Mar 2023 13:49:23
You're exactly right about the difference in midfield between this season and next season and our reliance on Henderson Thomas but that is part of the issue. We need him at his very best and freshest in the first week after internationals as there are not a lot of alternatives in midfield. If we mess that week up, our Champions League hopes are gone for good. Even if he asked to sit this current round of international fixtures. I'm sure Southgate would understand given his age. It's not like he's an important player for England.


9.) 23 Mar 2023 14:55:15
Babbity Rabbit - using your logic shouldn't all Liverpool players (young or old) retire from international duty as this would have a positve impact (however small) on their club performance? Liverpool could use the international break for extra training and prep before the next games?

Red Sandman.


10.) 23 Mar 2023 15:48:42
OP, it is clear that Hendo still wants to play for England and that is within his right, disagree or not. Not sure Klopp can do anything about that and he is not the type of guy who would go against the wish of any of his senior players to play for their country. Remember, he is German and to them, playing for their country holds a different level of significance than for English players playing for England.

The Germans players view playing for Der Manshaft (spelling) as very important for them and their careers. For English players, many often see it as a hindrance so Klopp prolly uses that view to consider how he navigates this topic with all his international players, not just Hendo. On this topic, it is up to Hendo to make the decision and he has more than earned the right to do that. It's not his fault that Klopp and the club did not make the necessary arrangements to mitigate against this.


11.) 23 Mar 2023 15:58:26
I think every player's situation is different Red Sandman. In the case of Henderson, he clearly needs rest time to be used effectively, he's almost 33, he's had a good run with England and evidently is seen as no more than a squad player by Southgate. He is also Liverpool's captain. If we compare him to Salah, for example, Salah is capable of playing almost every game and he is also Egypt's most important player. Apart from collecting as many caps as possible, Henderson will ultimately contribute little to England and his efforts would be better served focusing on the club he captains, especially if he ever wants to do the "Hendo shuffle" ever again.


12.) 23 Mar 2023 18:32:31
I actually think it's irresponsible and selfish to have this thought about another professional.

Up to Hendo and I really couldn't care less. most of you tink he's sh*te anyways.


13.) 23 Mar 2023 19:04:23
Maybe we're planning on Henderson having a good end to the season and playing well again next season.


14.) 23 Mar 2023 23:29:22
Maybe it is selfish and irresponsible for me to think this way Faithinworks but I'm not the one being £140k a week to do so!


15.) 23 Mar 2023 23:36:17
People are talking about Henderson’s fitness now, the same who said “this midfield nearly won the quadruple” so we are okay for one more season without an addition. People have now waken up and smelled the coffee. What Thomas said is precise, he should have never gotten the new contract but this page my god was crying and rallying for FSG to give him one.


16.) 23 Mar 2023 23:47:17
The best scenario would be to let Henderson stay with the England squad permanently so he’s not getting picked for Liverpool. I can’t understand how some fans, having seen the way the team is playing this season, with the midfield the main problem, don’t realise Henderson is part of the problem.


 

 

10 Feb 2023 12:40:20
Do any of the Eds know what the deal is with Hamann towards Klopp? He has been noticeably frosty towards him for many years now. Many theorise he was expecting some kind of job or inner access from his fellow German when Klopp first took the job but received no special treatment. Is there any truth towards those rumours or is it just gossip?

It's not absolutely necessary that two Germans always get along. Or, the current manager and an ex-player, either. Just one of those things. ??.


2.) 10 Feb 2023 13:09:55
Hamann just likes to critcise anyone and everyone to be contrarian for the sake of it. Maybe he's after a gig on talk sport.


3.) 10 Feb 2023 15:06:36
Why is anyone even bothered with what some washed-up ex player who talks absolute crap to get clout on SM, have to say to a guy like Klopp anyway? Seriously, who cares?


4.) 10 Feb 2023 15:52:10
Hamann like Carragher sold his soul to the media.


5.) 10 Feb 2023 16:02:15
I met Hamann once at a petrol station in Chester when he still played for us. I said hello to him twice and he ignored me and looked at me like a peace of poo on his shoe. He went in the shop bought some fags lit one in his car and drove off. Never liked him since!


6.) 10 Feb 2023 18:23:02
OP, the only reason there is an ‘issue’ is because people ask what the issue is. In this instance an ex-player striving to stay in the public eye needs to provoke a response.


7.) 10 Feb 2023 18:32:31
What a fuel.


8.) 10 Feb 2023 18:58:50
Yarmo, why do you say Carragher sold his soul to the media. Do you expect retired footballers to sit in the house, looking at 4 walls every day. I can name you a dozen ex players who are now pundits, so why pick on one.


9.) 10 Feb 2023 19:18:19
I really hope Tuchel take over from Klopp.


10.) 10 Feb 2023 16:46:45
No probs Ed. It's just weird because Hamann was very positive about Klopp when he first got the job and there were a lot of rumours he was going to give him a job in the backroom team. But Hamann's attitude towards Klopp turned sour relatively quickly which is odd because the Klopp era is an undeniable success and it seems the feeling has become mutual.

{Ed001's Note - Didi is an odd one at the best of times to be fair.}

Carragher is a horrible human.

{Ed025's Note - to put it mildly marty..


12.) 10 Feb 2023 21:11:48
Elliot I'm picking on two not one. Carragher is media **** along with Neville and others. If you're a fanboy that's your choice i despise them. I watch matches from exactly the start and turn it off at exactly the end.


13.) 10 Feb 2023 21:46:15
Carragher sits on sky and slags off the players/ managers and makes out he knows best whilst getting paid millions.

We come on to this website and slag off players and make out we know best for free.


14.) 10 Feb 2023 21:57:54
What about half-time Yarmouth - cup of Bovril and a pie?


15.) 10 Feb 2023 22:37:13
Some of the stories I heard about Didi out in Liverpool were hilarious, sometimes unbelievable! He certainly liked a drink, put it that way.


16.) 10 Feb 2023 23:22:25
I seen him in the casino once puffing away like one of Fred dibnahs chimneys he was.


17.) 11 Feb 2023 07:23:19
To be fair, I’ve met both, Didi only briefly I hasten to add, at Hamburg airport, had a quick chat and a photo

Carra I met at LFC’s end of seasons awards, in fact I was sat next to him on the table….


18.) 11 Feb 2023 08:20:34
Hamman was a good player, but like Carra their media views and perspectives are nonsensical. My loyalty will always be with Klopp.


19.) 11 Feb 2023 21:16:55
Hamann’s biography is quite a good read and boy did he have a gambling problem. And zero dress sense.

So what if he and Klopp don’t get along, is this really newsworthy?


20.) 12 Feb 2023 00:18:42
Hamaan just been saying what’s been said on here for ages. Not sure why it’s any different coming from him.

It's not realistic for Liverpool to aspire to Chelsea's level of success as Chelsea are working with a much larger talent pool in London and the South East compared to the North West where we are competing with massive academies like United, City and Everton.

Musiala also left because Bayern offered a clearer pathway into the first-team than Chelsea, not just because of Brexit.

A pity Chelsea don't build a team around the fantastic young players they develop instead of shipping them off to pay for some expensive kids you've never heard of from who knows where. Aren't they now after some Argentine kid who's only played three games? The irony is a team full of Chelsea academy alumni is genuinely better than the team they've got and how much did it cost them?

Derby want Bobby Clark on a loan to buy? I want to take Margot Robbie out on a date but she still hasn't replied to my messages.

I would rather we bide our time and wait until Adam Wharton becomes available than sign another midfielder this summer.

Regardless of whether Mac Allister leaves, we should be lining Adam Wharton up for 2025.

Why did he sign a new contract less than two years ago then, just as he was going on loan to Schalke? He's only had one other loan since then and don't forget he had a very bad freak injury at Schalke so the priority last year was probably for him to get guaranteed game time. Seems to want to have his cake and eat it. He didn't have to sign a new contract but presumably we were paying him more than the likes of Schalke and Mainz would have done. I wanted him to be given a chance in pre-season and for him to fight for a place in the first-team but I can't be bothered with entitled players with attitude problems. Maybe this is why Klopp never gave him a chance in the first-team.

{Ed001's Note - that wasn't how I read what he was saying. I read it that he was talking about last summer, with not getting a chance so wanted to go on loan. He didn't seem to be referring to this season to me.}

If Quansah is to be the main starter at right centre-back, wouldn't it make more sense to cash in on Konate rather than Van Den Berg given his injury record and higher market value?

English tax is a myth. Premier League tax is real though.

I would sell Konate this summer while he still has two years left on his contract. Rumours about a move to PSG have persisted for years so get it over with while we can still maximise his value. Give van den Berg Matip's role and bring in someone new to replace Konate.

Babbity Rabbity

{Ed002's Note - PSG has no interest in Konate and it is the player who wants to join them.}
