      Big fan of Adam he would be a great squad player filling in when required and doing a great job. I just don't see him playing 40 or 50 games a season like he did 4 seasons ago its been about 20 since then. He isn't going to play a full season with any club is he so why leave unless its down to money and at 31 he really should have enough tucked away to be able to stay here and add silverware to his career

      In all seriousness what is it you like about Adam compared to our other midfield options? I don't mean that as any kind of wind up I really am curious what it is I'm missing regarding his contribution.

      They have Tielemens, Praet and Maddison who all play similarly to Adam so perhaps they're anticipating a departure.


      Maddison is supposedly Man u bound with him being a fan and all that.

      Barely featured this season to be fair. Played the least minutes out of all our midfielders.

      Hardly though if Leicester finish top 4 and Mancs don't.

      Unless he's a greedy f**ker.

      quite often these days what players do off the ball is almost as important as when they do have it. Klopp loved Lallana because he was always first to start the press. He isn't the same as other midfield players we have we are not comparing him to them if you don't recognise what he has brought when fit over many seasons now then I am not the one to educate you.

      Why the defensive childish reaction? It was an honest question, so it's the pressing you like, it seems Jürgen disagrees, he's certainly a long way down the pecking order lately.

      Yes. He's one of the first to understand Jürgen's pressing and did that effectively. Ask any of our players and they'd tell you it's very difficult to get the ball off him. Indeed a valuable option off the bench. I get excited when he comes in knowing full well that he could hold up the midfield. And that last minute Norwich goal. I can never forget.

      You've got it all wrong, mate. Mbappe will take Shaq's place on the bench. Kai Havertz will take's Adam's seat.  ;D

      Which begs the question, where are Sancho and Werner going to sit?

      I think it's more to do with the depth of our bench tbh. When you have Ox, Origi, Keita, Milner, Shaqiri, you can't imagine Lallana getting too many games. I still like him as an option and it's true about his work rate, he's high pressing non stop whenever he comes on. Plus he does have a little bit of creativity and the occasional goal in him. It's a nice option if he's happy to carry on getting 10-15 appearances off the bench. I suspect he'll want the last couple of years of his career playing regularly in a club like Leicester or Wolves etc. though.


      He is a player that never fulfilled huge potential though

      Don’t think he will play regularly at either Leicester or a Wolves. If he wants regular game time week in week out, then he’s going to have to drop down to the relegation area of the league IMO. People expected the likes of Jay Rodriguez to be a regular at Burnley but he isn’t and even teams like Brighton are benching players like Gross who are no worse than Lallana. Going to have to go to a team like Bournemouth if he wants to play virtually every week.

      Lallana should leave ASAP. He reached his peak some some months then got injured, other than that, he was a flop for me, because he was unreliable.  Not good enough for the team now, given the squad we have.

      If he goes, we'll always have Norwich.

      Just watched the highlights of the 5-4 game back on BT and still puts a smile on my face, especially seeing the realisation dawn on Jurgens face that his glasses are fu**ed!

      He Stays .....  But He Doesn't .


      Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has agreed to extend his deal with the club until the end of the season.

      England international Lallana, 32, was set to leave on a free transfer when his contract runs out on 30 June.

      The 2019-20 season will restart on 17 June after a 100-day break because of the coronavirus pandemic and Lallana will now leave when the season ends.

      "I am really pleased to have the chance to finish this season - it means a lot to me and my family," said Lallana.

      "I feel in my time at Liverpool I've always looked to do the right thing for the team, the manager and the club in every decision I've made. I think this one fits into that category as well, so I'm buzzing to be seeing out this campaign and hopefully get to celebrate something memorable with an amazing group of people."

      Liverpool are 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League and are on the verge of claiming their first league title in 30 years.

      Their first match after the restart is at Everton on 21 June, with their last game scheduled to be away to Newcastle on 26 July.

      Goalkeeper Andy Lonergan, 36, who joined at the start of the season as back-up to Alisson Becker and Adrian but has not made an appearance, has signed a similar extension until the end of the season.

      Manager Jürgen Klopp said it was "not possible" to find words to describe Lallana's contribution since he took charge and welcomed the chance to give the former Southampton midfielder a "farewell he deserves so much".

      "I know how highly sought-after Adam is in this moment by other clubs who want him for next season, so for him this is a commitment to us and we are very appreciative to him for it," said Klopp.

      "Even the way he has handled this extension tells you all you need to know about the person and his character. A top-class professional and an even better person.

      "He wants to be here to finish the job and do it properly, but it says everything about him that his biggest concern was blocking the progress and opportunity of a player who is under contract for next season also."

      Lallana's time at Anfield has been hampered by injuries in the past two seasons and he has played 15 league games during the current campaign, scoring once.

      He moved to Liverpool from Southampton for £25m in 2014 and was signed by then-Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, who has been linked with signing Lallana again for Leicester City.

      Well in fairness his other option was to not get paid for a month, but it works out ok for us, gives us some extra cover.

      Certainly excess to requirements right now, never really impressed even in his so called 'better years. His final touch was always always lacking as was his movement off the ball.
      He did have the occasional glory day but overall an average performer.
      Irrespective wish the lad well wherever he decides his future lies.

      He scored a few important goals. never really consistent. Apparently would encourage the younger lads which looked up to him.

      Yes injuries cost him and the team developed beyond him in his absence but we shouldn't forget just how important he was early on in the Klopp era - a crucial member of the side that moved from mid table to Champions League qualification.

      Good to see him extending his contract to cover this season because he deserves to be here and share the success.
