Liverpool and Manure are classical giants with similar status to Real Madrid and Barcelona in Spain. Man City got lucky they got bought over by Arab sugar daddies brought them into prominance and winning a number of titles. Liverpool and Manure have built up a huge fan base over the years and their news tend to have more clicks and comments even in those barren years which they don't win anything

He is getting more and more tense over every single match.
Should be demanding a victory all the time.
At the rate he is going, he will burn himself or his team out at the end of the season.

Liverpool coach confirms ‘discussions’ over deal for Michel Vorm - source

Liverpool goalkeeping coach John Achterberg has confirmed there have been discussions within the club over a move for ex-Tottenham ‘keeper Michel Vorm.

Vorm is still a free agent after being released by Spurs at the end of last season, and was one of the most popular options when considering short-term additions at Anfield.

With Alisson still sidelined, Adrian has been filling in between the sticks so far, while 35-year-old Andy Lonergan has been drafted in as an emergency backup.

But with Lonergan lacking top-level experience, and youngster Caoimhin Kelleher yet to debut, the possibility of a more proven third goalkeeper has been mooted.

According to Achterberg, speaking to Dutch outlet NOS, he and the rest of Jurgen Klopp‘s backroom staff had “discussed” the prospect of signing Vorm.

“A good third goalie at a top club is not a superfluous luxury, I have always said,” he explained.

He did add, however, that Lonergan’s record at Championship level is “not to be underestimated,” while it is “not for nothing” that Kelleher is established in the Republic of Ireland setup.

It is possible that Vorm was considered prior to the decision to sign Lonergan, but Achterberg’s “superfluous luxury” line indicates that he would come in as competition for Adrian.

This is not the first time the Dutchman has been on the Reds’ radar, of course, and they made a concerted effort to sign Vorm when he was at Swansea back in 2014.

He instead joined Spurs and remained there for five seasons, but spent his entire spell in north London as backup to Hugo Lloris, making just 47 appearances for the club.

Regardless, he is still a strong, experienced goalkeeper, proven in the Premier League, and if he were brought in he would improve Klopp’s squad considerably.

=======================================
Adrian or Vorm?
Think me prefer Vorm, after what Adrian did against S'ton...

If they want Vorm, why they signed Lonergan in the 1st place ?
If they really want to do it, they better do it fast.
The second ball will easily picked up by the Emery gang to finish the job.
That is the concern I raised about Adrian.
This is also causing additional tension for our backline.

Think Adrian is a dependable goalkeeper, just that he is not use to playing the Liverpool way (playing out from the back).

Henderson was needed to steady the ship in the last few mins vs Saints. Came on and told VVD to keep the captain armband, still led by example source

Think we were "debating" some time back about armband being pass around when the captain comes on. If what the video show is true, then kudos to Henderson. Get on with the game and forget about the armband thing, everyone know who is the captain.

The video of coz is true. Did you not watch the match? I was surprise when VVD did not pass the armband to him. When Milner was taken off, the camera show him passing the armband to VVD.

I think Henderson have mature alot. He understand that what matter most is the performance on the pitch and how he lead the team with or without the armband
