Letting Talent Go Permanently

Liverpool has been a great about letting talented youngsters go permamently to another team if they have no real chance at first team futbol.  Yet in the cases of Grujic, Wilson and maybe Woodburn, we may be throwing the baby out with the bathwater!  Our midfield seems crowded at the moment, with little chance for the youngsters to get playing time.  But that same midfield will begin to look a little old in a few years (and I know about OLD) and the team will begin…

New 2019/20 Away Kit

The Reds’ away kit for next season pays homage to the legendary Bob Paisley, the most successful manager in the club’s history, in the year of the 100th anniversary of his birth. Quite similiar to the home kit and it looks decent even though the image doesn't give a proper view. I am sure it will look better on the players and the supporters. Can't wait to see the third kit... Black? or Yellow?…

Another Defender - Part II

I heard there is a debate on the question "Does LFC need another defender?"  My question is why is there a debate about an obvious need.  We needed one last summer when I brought up the fact that except for VVD, all our CBs can be considered walking wounded!  Gomez is a wonderful, youthful CB who works well with VVD but his history puts any idea that he will last the season without a major injury in doubt.  His effort and loyalty are not in question, but has he been given enough time to…

MADRID CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL PAGE

2540045231?profile=RESIZE_710x

As we won't have a match between now and the Champions League final, and so no match blog through which to share our views, I thought it may be useful to have a page which people can use to post and discuss anything in connection to the Madrid final. I'm sure closer to the day itself someone will start a match blog but until then feel free to use this page to post any thoughts or information that's…

New 2019/20 Home Kit

The Reds’ home kit for next season pays homage to the legendary Bob Paisley, the most successful manager in the club’s history, in the year of the 100th anniversary of his birth.

In special tribute to Paisley’s remarkable LFC legacy, each jersey is inscribed with his signature on the inside of the neck and also includes a swing tag dedicated to his incredible achievements.

Retaining the popular deeper red shade of recent years, the home shirt features stylish white pinstripes…

Goal keeper

Just a quick one boys, heading to work right now. Just reading a report that Zidane is considering selling Courtois, doesn't have a price but i would imagine it to be high as i think he's in the top 5 best keepers in the world, should LFC keep an eye on this? We definitely need competition for Alisson, he's starting to look a bit too comfortable now, Courtois would definitely push him for that number 1 position and hence would bring out the best in both of them. I think we should definitely…

So, how do we feel about the quarterfinal draw?

1435675729?profile=RESIZE_710x

The two teams I wanted to avoid at the quarterfinal stage were Juventus and Barcelona, basically because Ronaldo and Messi were in top form during the previous round and while it's possible to outplay great teams it's much harder to outplay great teams with genius players. Thankfully, we've dodged those two particular bullets and have been drawn…

Not Enough Defenders

Looks as if we are stuck with Lovren at CB for at least 6 weeks.  Who would have thought that we would need more support at that position a few weeks ago?  If appears that VVD might be the only senior CB available if one more goes down to injury.  Gomez is going to have to have his appearences monitored for a while, Matip is physically unreliable, and Lovern is just unreliable perood.  I'm not a manager, but that sounds like a CB crisis to me.  We need another CB body in ASAP!  Any ideas for…

LFC plan 85M Dembele bid?!

The dailies are rife with rumours that Reds are planning an audacious GBP85 million bid for Ousmane Dembele from Barca. While the need for a creative, offensive midfielder is an obvious gap to close for LFC since the parting of Gerrard and Coutinho, this club record bid is clearly raising eye-brows. Is Dembele worth 85M or will Fekir on a pay for play basis represent better value? Reds obviously don't need a repeat of dud panic buys of the likes of Andy Carroll and Balotelli.

Henderson Signs New Longterm Contract

95748163?profile=RESIZE_710x

 

I couldn't help but smile as I thought of all those keyboard warriors around the world frothing at the mouth upon reading this news. The signing of Fabinho and Keita, in some people's eyes, was supposed to ring the eventual death knell of Henderson's Liverpool career. Yet Klopp has never swayed, when asked, from his view that Henderson is an…

Real to tap in for Salah?

Rumor mill in the Express suggests that Real Madrid may try to entice Mo Salah away from Anfield with a GBP133M (Euro150M) offer now that they'd lost their main striker Ronaldo to Juventus. It may start to get serious if their bid for Cavani from PSG fails. Will the lack of a release clause in Mo's contract help LFC's retention hopes?…
