Rumours of them looking at Vorm now as he’s still a free agent surprisingly.

Personally without blinkers I reckon Vorm is better than Adrian anyways.

They don’t look anywhere near as solid at the back this season, they are still pretty great going forward, but there’s no way they will get as many lucky penalties and offside goals this year, and they surely can’t have as much luck with key injuries again this year. They’ve also got loads of games to play.

Reckon if we can get into our stride we have a chance of finishing above them.

strange comments from the agent of Steven Gerrard's cousion, who is at the club.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49500705

Liverpool have rejected accusations of 'mentally bullying' teenage forward Bobby Duncan.

The 18-year-old, who is the cousin of former club captain Steven Gerrard, had been the subject of interest from Serie A side Fiorentina recently but Liverpool want to keep the youngster.

Duncan's representative, Saif Rubie, says Duncan is being kept at the club against his will.

The Reds described Rubie's comments as "unfounded allegations".

In a lengthy statement released on social media, Rubie said: "This is not really dignified behaviour from a club with the rich history of Liverpool and one [at which] one of their greatest-ever players, Steven Gerrard, happens to be Bobby's cousin.

"It's a sad state of affairs that a club such as Liverpool can be allowed to get away with mentally bullying and destroying the life of a young man such as Bobby."

Duncan joined Liverpool from Manchester City in 2018 and scored 32 goals in all competitions for the club's under-18 side last season.

He was part of the Reds' squad for their pre-season tour of America this summer and also scored in the 6-0 friendly defeat of Tranmere in July.

In a response to Rubie's comments, Liverpool said: "Liverpool Football Club is aware of and disappointed by the unattributed comments and unfounded allegations that have been made in the media regarding one of our players.

"As the interests of the player in question are not best served by either inaccurate speculation, inflammatory statements or public discourse, we will be making no further comment.

"We will, however, continue our efforts to work privately with the player to find resolution in the best interests of all involved."
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher, in a reply to Rubie's statement on Twitter, said: "I know Bobby and his family well. He's young and at that age we all want everything right now.

"[He] played for the first team in pre-season, which is a great start, and he should try to develop this season and maybe make the bench in [the] Carabao Cup. That should be the advice you're giving him."
 

Spurrific

Agent sounds like an absolute helmet. Hopefully the kid sacks him off and nobody is stupid enough to use his services in the future. Makes me ill these parasites make millions off the talent of others.

Just sounds like your typical player moaning about having to honour their contract if you ask me. Comes across as even more silly though given that he's an absolute nobody. Seems more like the agent is just hoping that because of the Gerard connection this will get more publicity than it really warrants. Doesnt exactly paint the kid in a particularly good light though which probably does more damage to his career than being made to stay at Liverpool for another couple of years.

Sancho did the same. Look at him now. Fiorentina have probably promised him game time or to at least be a part of their first team squad.
Obviously liverpool don't want to lose him. And it is a kick in the teeth after developing him.
It's a win win for the kid though. Either way he'll get more game time.
