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.
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…

Seems he didn't play for Lyon lastnight so looks like he's on the move but maybe not to us as i've just read chelsea are favourites to sign him, any thoughts on this, i'm 50-50 on it due to the knee problem he may have.
Think ive set it up ok for 2018/19
Hope you will join good competition last season
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?…
Latest outbursts from Stokes and Arsenal camps suggest both dressing room and fans' discontent with big names not pulling their weight in their club's relegation and downward spiral battles. Names like Shaqiri, Ozil and Sanchez come to mind; "disappear from games", "goes missing" are all too often heard in post-game comments. Let's hope we see a very different and motivated Shaqiri in the LFC red jersey!!
The current transfer season has been a weird one because of the World Cup. However, I do have somethings to say (surprise) on was has occrued so far. Like many LFC supporters, I do nt like the idea of XS being given a red shirt and is now a member of our beloved team. I do not understand the thinking behind signing this 'bargain' in this transfer market. Have watched, and analyzed Xherdan Shagiri's play over the last few seasons and I just do not believe he has the quality or temperment…
With Liverpool kicking off their pre-season yesterday with a 7-0 win over 6th tier Chester I thought I would post a pre-season thread, though at some stage when we come up against more serious opposition someone (Warrior?) may wish to start a blog around a particular game. The first half team had a bit of a struggle to find any rhythm. Harry Wilson's two goals were well taken and his movement was good. Curtis Jones was impressive and payed a lovely pass for Wilson's second. Fabinho hit…
I thought I would add a World Cup thread to the site so we can comment on the action and in particular on the performance of those Liverpool players who are participating and those with whom we are linked. So far it has been an enjoyable competition with some stunning goals and at least one brilliant game,Spain v Prtugal (or should that be Spain v Ronaldo) I thought Lovren had a very solid first game for Croatia though Nigeria were poor and hardly tested him. Henderson continued his good…
Liverpool's fixture list for 2018-19
11 – West Ham United (H)
18 – Crystal Palace (A)
25 – Brighton and Hove Albion (H)
1 – Leicester City (A)
15 – Tottenham Hotspur (A)
When it first emerged that Karius had been sent to get tested for concussion by the club I, like many others, thought it was an exercise in detoxifying his reputation after his disastrous display in the Champions League final. However, after reviewing the footage of the incident between Ramos and Karius and reading numerous expert opinions I've become…
Fabinho's combination of character and ability make Jürgen Klopp delighted with Liverpool's agreement to sign the midfielder from AS Monaco.
The 24-year-old will join the Reds on July 1 after 225 appearances and 29 goals for the French club, with whom he won the Ligue 1 title in 2016-17.
Was Salah nobbled?
I'm going to say something controversial but hear me out before you string me up from the nearest tree - I don't think the MAIN intention of Ramos was to put Salah out of the game. Even though his reputation would suggest it was perfectly possible that Ramos meant to nobble Salah I don't think the sequence of events and where they took place on the pitch point to that being the obvious conclusion,…
This is quite a long article by Melissa Reddy called 'From Hong Kong to Kiev: At the end of the storm, there's a golden sky... The inside story of how Jurgen Klopp weathered the worst to lead Liverpool into the Champions League final' (…
Liverpool have released a statement on the fitness of Joe Gomez:
'Liverpool can confirm Joe Gomez has undergone an operation on an ankle injury.
The surgery, which has now addressed the issue, means the 20-year-old will play no part in the remaining two fixtures of…
He has signed a four year deal to be their next Gaffer. A huge gamble for him and he needs all the luck with it. However, the quality of Scottish football is so poor and he could have started his managerial career in one of the lower divisions in English Football instead. For example, there are many good managers that started in the lower leagues, Chris Hughton, Eddie Howe, Sean Dyche, etc. I wish Stevie G all the best with his new career and to be honest I don’t want him to manage Liverpool…
While the media is awash with the names of possible new signings for next season Jurgen Klopp has managed to get what is probably the most important signature of the lot. So important is Roberto Firmino to his dynamic attacking force that his agreement to a new longterm contract is something to really celebrate. We've been fortunate that Firmino has…
I'm not sure whether the job of Liverpool kit designer is the easiest or hardest in the world. On the one hand you just have to pick a shade of red and add a few lines here and there, but on the other hand it must be…
