Man U have had problems recently but, somehow, they often find a way to win a trophy. I wouldn't be surprised if they do it again this season. Our game against them will be tough but if we go back to playing like we did last season, ie pressing and fluid football, we can beat them and hopefully win the pemiership at the end of the season.

Agree5 Disagree3

19 Feb 2019 13:43:48
Utd were under performing under Jose. The fact they are now winning (and losing) games is what you would expect from a team of such value. Thing is they stuck with Jose for too long and now they have no chance of the league and look like they are going out of the ucl. FA Cup, they are welcome to, if they can get past city. I wouldn't be surprised if wolves beat them.

I've been very impressed with wolves and it'd be cool to see them in the final and winning it. I think in the next few years they will become another contender for top 4.

Can I ask, does any country have 5 ucl qualification places? Coz we gave a big 6 now when not so long ago we had a big 3.

If I were ed025 I'd be pretty worried by the emergence of wolves.

Agree3 Disagree5

19 Feb 2019 16:50:32
I have to say I’m very worried for Sunday they have hit top form recently and the timing of playing them is probably the worst time for us. Hopefully no more injuries tonight and some back for Sunday and hopefully we snatch a win like they have with us so many times.

Agree1 Disagree2

19 Feb 2019 17:44:57
They beat spurs, who hammered them, and they beat Chelsea, who were abysmal. PSG whooped them, without 2 starting forwards. I genuinely think it'll be easier to get points off ole's United than it would be against mourinho's United at old Trafford, as it will be the type of game that suits us more.

Agree3 Disagree1

19 Feb 2019 18:44:47
Spot on, Rugby Parker. I am not worried about Utd come Sun for the very reasons you gave. They beat a Chelsea team that is abysmal, lacks heart, belief and any type of leadership and direction. That is NOT Liverpool under Klopp. PSG (whose team we beat comfortably at Anfield) did not have to break a drop of sweat to beat them.

Now, this is not to say that Utd can't beat us on the day cos esp. being at home, they definitely can beat us. If we play at full pelt and they do as well, we def DON'T lose at least. I'm excited to see how we do.

Agree1 Disagree2

19 Feb 2019 19:57:19
Wasn’t it 3-2.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2019 10:30:39
A lot of people on here bemoaning the injuries and illnesses the squad are enduring at the moment (and rightly so maybe) but we are still well placed in the league and playing in the last 16 of the c/ l this evening.
It will be a huge boost to the squad and at exactly the right time of the season when these players start returning to full fitness. It will be as if we weathered the storm. They will be like new signings.
Sometimes if it's for you it won't pass you by no matter how hard the going gets. It's ours people YNWA.

Agree4 Disagree2

19 Feb 2019 10:50:22
I agree, our big players will be coming back to full fitness for the run on. Our first 11 have been well rested this month and even through January. I don't see burn out being a problem. Pressure will be the problem if any. But I think klopp has the team pretty cool. I'm glad Keita starts tonight alongside gini. And I think hendo playing in front of fab and matip should be okay.

Agree3 Disagree1

19 Feb 2019 18:49:21
I'm not bemoaning injuries or illness to our squad even tho it can be very frustrating. Why? Every team has them during a season so this is nothing new. The good thing is that this team and manager refuse to quit nor be beaten. They continue to rise above the type of adversity that would have left other LFC teams of the past, finished at this stage (See Houllier's team of 2002/ 2003 season) .

Our team will be at full pelt in a couple of weeks and then, you just go for it and don't look back. Either we're going to win the PL title or we're going to fail giving it our utter best shot.

19 Feb 2019 02:31:32
A german friend of mine who supports Leverkusen was telling me about how Julian Brandt's move into midfield was finding a lot of success not unlike the Ox's move last year. Got me thinking, any former or current Liverpool players you would think would have done well in a different position?

I'm always curious how defenders like Hansen or Van Dijk would do in a midfield considering their technical quality.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Feb 2019 04:00:54
Id like to see trent at cm, although i doubt that will be this season.

Agree0 Disagree5

19 Feb 2019 07:57:26
I'm sure I'll get hammered for this but I actually think Henderson could have a future in defence. Most probably at right back. He's quick, reads the game well, makes powerful runs off the ball, defends well o e on one, and can whip in great balls from wide.

If Trent ever moved into midfield as is expected, I can see Hendo moving back in his place.

Agree4 Disagree13

19 Feb 2019 08:04:00
People need to get over this Trent to midfield nonsense. It’s never going to happen. Just spent over 100m on two midfielders, and will replace lallana and Milner with other actual midfielders in the summer.
Everyone who says they want to see him in cm, has never actually watched a game with him in midfield.
The lad is now a right back, and will see his career there.

To the op. I think gerrard could of gone and played in any position, in any team in the world, and put a shift in.

Agree9 Disagree9

19 Feb 2019 09:00:18
No chance mk he has no pace, it wouldn't surprise me if this or next could be his last season with us due to fitness concerns and his age

And benny i really don't think trent is a right back myself, he's played his whole youth at cm. I know that's meaningless but i think he would excel at cm once his positioning has come on. I also don't think he would be happy to stay at rb as in many interviews he has stated cm is his position

Have a good day as well lads.

Agree4 Disagree3

19 Feb 2019 09:21:16
Lol Trent is 20 years old and already being ruled out for a new position? come on, he has plenty of time to prove he's good enough for CM which I believe he's capable of. I'd understand if he was 27 and people were talking about him moving to midfield but he's 20! give the lad time.

Agree7 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - how old was Milner when he moved into central midfield? Most players change position throughout their career.}

19 Feb 2019 09:22:21
consider Liverpool’s 1977 European Cup Final lineup; Neal played both full back roles in his career, Tommy Smith and Emlyn Hughes started out in midfield and also played across the back four, Callaghan was a right winger and converted to a centre midfielder after knee troubles, Ray Kennedy from target man to left side midfield, Heighway from left winger to a more central role, Keegan from midfield to striker etc etc.
It was always a trait of Liverpool teams, good footballers who were able to adapt.

I like to think that this present set up continues in that vein. Perhaps not to the same wide extent but the front three can interchange, midfielders too, both full backs could probably play as wing backs and, as you say, Trent might eventually evolve into a Wijnaldum-type midfielder. Both Gomez and VVD are quick enough to cover wide positions if absolutely required.
I hope that this theme will continue in the Summer signing/ s, perhaps a full back or two who can also play further forward and a pacey front man like Werner who can be used in the three forward positions.
It adds value to the squad, allows rotation and cuts down on waste.

Agree4 Disagree0

19 Feb 2019 09:48:28
Very true Ed, Trent being ruled out at 20 years old is just nonsense talk. He could change position in a year or two and then again in 5 years.

Agree3 Disagree3

19 Feb 2019 10:09:22
I can’t see Hendo being a right back sorry, he’s not quick enough especially as in our system our full backs need to be able to get up and down the entire pitch all game. I remember him playing on the right of midfield when he first joined us and he wasn’t particularly good there, midfield is where he is best.

Agree2 Disagree1

19 Feb 2019 10:56:36
I actually kissed the screen when he scored that 40 yard screamer to take the hammers to extra time in FA Cup final.

To the OP, one of the most successful changes of position I can remember is Thierry Henry.

19 Feb 2019 12:44:56
Tell you what; the day TAA plays cm 3 games in a row, I’ll play the following charity match in my pants.
With the constant pressure managers are under, you think anyone would risk playing him out of position?
Not to mention his international career; with Southgate looking to play walker in the back 3, and trippier being pony, TAA could be the rwb for the next decade.
We aren’t even looking for a right back.

Agree2 Disagree3

19 Feb 2019 14:01:12
I must be watching a different Henderson. He doesn't lack pace at all. Klopp apparently wanted to play him at centre back in the FA cup against Wolves, and he played right back against Leicester and ran Gray off the ball every time they faced up 1 vs 1 (who by the way, is no slouch) .

I knew I'd get hammered for it, but I still think we'll see him covering in defence much more often. He's twice as fast as Milner and he has played right/ left back increasingly as he's got older. The main difference is Hendo has the reading of the game and the height to also cover centre back.

Agree0 Disagree4

19 Feb 2019 14:03:27
The most obvious recent (and I would say successful) position change is Milner. From a right winger at ManC he has come in and changed his game to one that is based on playing central midfield and doing either the offensive or defensive duties (or both), depending on the team being played and team tactics decided by Klopp. And his ability to adapt and play various positions has been a Godsend for the team, that people do not talk about much, unfortunately.

The only way I would move TAA into midfield is after asking myself (and answering) which player/ position is he better than, and how much better is he? Right now, my answer is that he isn't better than any midfielder playing in our starting team. He's perfect staying where he is.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2019 17:38:21
I know it’s not the same level by any means but I don’t think many people know that Trent played 10 games for the England u19’s as a right winger and got 7 goals. I’m not saying he’ll end up a winger or a cm or a right back, I just think that the lad is clearly talented enough in multiple positions and that it’s definitely conceivable that he won’t spend his career at right back.

Agree1 Disagree0

60 minutes now played Liverpool u23s on top still 0-0 though, TV Cameras have highlighted Curtis Jones taking the lace out of his right boot on 55 mins, and he is still playing without any lace in his right boot 65 mins played, has not even gone to touchline to change boot how his boot has not flown off God knows, Adam Lewis just been substituted.

Agree5 Disagree7

18 Feb 2019 21:03:16
Game Over Liverpool u23s deservedly won 1-0, In two days Paul Glatzel will be 18 he scored the winner on 75 mins nice early birthday present. Curtis Jones went off before he scored the winner still minus his right boot lace, another funny thing from game when Glatzel scored the only goal scoreboard showed 2-0 to Liverpool, it was nearly right as Mcauley hit post for Liverpool in stoppage time. Scoreboard still showed 2-0 after game finished. Well Done Boys, won at a canter, could of played without a goalie tonight, Neil Mellor just said our goalie never made a save all night and he is right. The game was shown live on LFC Channel.

I’m happy to see you post 007 so no criticism, but the highlights no. 2, 3 and 4 on LFCTV 90 sec summary of the game all were of the GK making saves. They must have read your comment and wanted to make sure he didn’t feel under appreciated 😂.

Please play Shaqiri or Kieta as his replacement rather than Sturridge or Origi! Salah can play up top and at least one of those two will put a decent shift in.

I’d take a 1-0 win at this stage not sure about everyone else.

Agree7 Disagree2

18 Feb 2019 18:01:28
Origi for me. Shaqiri always better from the bench but has been poor all round last lot of games. I know Origi missed a good chance vs West Ham but at least he got in the position to have the chance. He still has pace which can really help.

Agree5 Disagree7

18 Feb 2019 18:12:21
How can Keita play in place of Bobby? That make very little sense if any. Also, Salah based on the B'moth game, is better coming from the wide areas as well which is where Bayern is weak when their fullbacks bomb on. With Salah playing from wide, Alaba will think twice before bombing on at will.

As for who btw Origi and Studge should play, it's a toss up, IMO. Will have to deffer to Klopp on this one.

drogie,
no, no, no. the next game is the most important, which happens to be bayern munich.
looking forward to tomorrow’s game, we as fans have got a big part to play, we need to bring our best singing voices and as many flags and banners as we can, also need to get in a bit earlier to get the atmosphere going while the players are preparing on the pitch, a win tomorrow could have a big knock on effect for the manu game.
cmon redmen.

18 Feb 2019 22:54:00
I’m also looking forward to the match tomorrow Wembley, in fact for once, I’m taking the train and not driving, so a few sherberts will be the order of the day.

19 Feb 2019 08:42:14
If Klopp goes with the 4-3-3 which I hope he does and Bobbys not 100% Origi deserve a shot upfront he has proven he has more desire and effort then studge uptop he is quick in behind as well both Bayerns CB don't like people running in behind them don't have the legs to catch up.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Feb 2019 10:58:05
I'd move salah to the middle, mane on the left and Keita on the right. DS on the bench if we need a goal.

I'm a HUGE Red Sox fan and can't stand the Yankees, so for me to say this is very painful, but the '27 Yankess are generally considered the greatest of all time. I'd say that this past season for the red sox was the greatest of this century so far though.

Agree0 Disagree2

{Ed001's Note - I am surprised at that. But it did mean I phrased things differently, as baseball tends to be full of lots of little acronyms, such as ERA, with absolutely no explanation of what they all mean! I ended up leaving out loads of the stats as they were just so boring and just tried to find out what I could about the people instead.}

19 Feb 2019 09:24:54
Yeah I get what you mean Ed mate, tbh most of the stats I probably wouldn't even understand! but that article at least has interesting information and that to me is what an article is all about, nothing worse then reading a boring article when it's going nowhere, like most sites publish!

What's the next article mate? or is it a case of what's finished next? as I know you are probably in the process of many lol.

Agree3 Disagree4

{Ed001's Note - I am surprised though, I thought Brazilians loved him. Must have finally realised he is not all that. The poll was only done because some magazine or other in Brazil said Neymar was the best since Pele. Clearly no one agrees!}

18 Feb 2019 09:01:26
Cheers. This issue between Cardiff and Nantes is utterly disrespectful and indicative to what the modern game has become. I understand with it being such a unique situation, and the money involved it was always going to result in legality issues but all parties should have made it priority to keep everything behind closed doors. Very distasteful.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - it is not really all that unique, this kind of thing happens all the time, with career-ending injuries etc. The difference is that it is usually just mostly covered by insurance and the buying club pay what is left without all this carry on. Cardiff just messed up because they are unprofessional and did not make all the arrangements themselves to ensure they would be covered.}

18 Feb 2019 09:13:21
Hi Ed, are Cardiff not trying to sue the football agent McKay, as he admitted deliberately inflating the Sala transfer value? Either way, it's embarrassing and this type of stuff should be done in private out of respect.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - it is one of the things they are looking into. It is disgusting. You agreed a deal, things go wrong through no one's fault, tough you just have to get on with it. What they should be doing is looking into why the club itself did not organise everything involved. They messed up and now they are trying to wheedle out of a legally agreed deal because of it.}

Joke of the day that one mate, best since Pele my ar*e.

Agree3 Disagree6

18 Feb 2019 09:43:05
I meant it was unique in terms of death, treating the situation with a bit of respect and behind closed doors. Injuries wouldn't be as sensitive an issue.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Feb 2019 10:08:51
I thought Cardiff did provide him option of public flight but Willie Mackey refused. I actually believe Cardiff are within their rights to hold off. Interim report should be due in a few days and that could prove easily that someone needs to be held accountable,! It should be kept behind closed doors but if Cardiff feel he was put on an unsafe plane being flown by an unlicensed pilot in rough weather i think they deserve to at least hear the report.

Agree7 Disagree2

18 Feb 2019 10:16:39
i was surprised to hear about fodens comments. Firstly he's barely got a look in all season so his contribution has been fairly limited. secondly city actually havant won anything yet this season. maybe if they had won a cup and were in a couple of finals they would have a great chance but there is a long way to go and could still end the season with nothing other than a comeback against newport to show for it.

Agree3 Disagree0

18 Feb 2019 10:44:34
anyone who says neymar is the best since pele has clearly never seen R9. and that man didn't even reach his potential surely with all that injuries and partying.

18 Feb 2019 11:51:42
So pleased by that survey result - Neymar doesn’t deserved to be ranked anywhere near the likes of Ronaldo, Ronaldinho or Rivaldo etc.

Any player that ‘feels pain more than others’ to justify play acting to get others booked or sent off deserves less than zero respect.

Agree4 Disagree0

18 Feb 2019 12:03:11
They despicable Neil Warnock and the detestable Willie McKay appear to have, ahem, a ‘special relationship’. There are numerous examples in the public domain - you just have to Google their names together - but just consider this one. In December 2017, Leeds United terminated the contracts of twin 21 year old brothers Jack and Paul McKay ‘by mutual consent’. They had made 1 senior appearance for Leeds between them. In January 2018 they were both signed by Cardiff City on two and a half year deals. Neither has made a senior appearance for Cardiff and Jack is currently on loan to Chesterfield in the National League and Paul is on loan to Morecambe in League Two. You all know, of course, that Warnock is the manager of Cardiff but did I mention that the twins’ father is Willie McKay? Still think that Cardiff will sue McKay for his behavior in the Emiliano Sala transfer?

Agree5 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - they do have a special relationship but this is not about Colin mate. This is over his head.}

18 Feb 2019 12:19:46
Cardiff - very distasteful.

Ramos - should have been the 50th or 100th red card he received in his career.

Top 10 players in Brazil's history - not only did this poll backfire on Neymar (if it was ever to glorify him) but it gave me hope that the people in Brazil do know who their premium players are. but i also suppose a significant number of the pollsters are older and have seen or at least heard about some of these legends.

On a slightly different note, so many great Brazilian teams filled with great players have won much more than Neymar has (and he's not some poor sod who happened to be born in an era where Brazil has a lack of quality) . So there really is not reason to name him as one of the greats. If he was truly as special as some claims (and Neymar himself probably believes), then go on and do a Maradona. Win something single handedly and perhaps a conversation about his greatness can be discussed.

Exactly ed this is strictly business at this stage and it's clear already from Cardiffs actions and public statements over the last couple of weeks that they're going to push all the blame on mackay. What I also found odd wasn't it the same day they located the plane that Nantes demanded payment, maybe coincidence but they might have been fearing the found wreckage giving Cardiff a case against them. Its a messy situation.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - it was because Cardiff were meant to make an initial payment immediately but never did, so they sent the reminder that it was overdue.}

Interesting Ed, on the top Brazilians. Any surprise on the rankings for you Ed?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I personally would not have had Rivaldo up so high.}

Honestly I was surprised to see Roberto Carlos so low, and to not see Dunga at all.

Neymar being the best since Pele, does not even pass the laugh test.

I'm assuming the Brazilian poll refers to players who are not Pele's contemporaries, and strictly after his retirement, otherwise there's be easily 5-6 players from that 1970 team that deserve a place in the top 10. But I am surprised that Junior, the left back / midfielder from the 80's is not on that list. Far more deserving than a Bebeto or Careca on that list.

I see a lot of posters asking what cb we are targeting and tbh not even klopp knows right now.

Imo we should look at nico elvedi, the swiss cb at bmg. Bmg have the third best defensive record and he's comfortable as a ball player, he's covered lb and rb this season also and has over 150 appearences at the age of 21.

Agree3 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - I have explained about the CBs we know the club has looked at.}

17 Feb 2019 23:59:50
Yes i have seen that so thanks ed, just a bit of fantasy football fromme.

Hi Eds any idea what Klopp's plans are for youngsters Lewis, Camacho and Brewster next season? Hope they are given a chance to step up Lewis to be Robbo's back up, Camacho to be Mane's and Brewster for Firmino/ Salah up front. Anyone who's watched Lewis a lot this season think he's ready?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I would think Brewster will have the chance to fill any gaps left by Sturridge, Origo and Solanke - but they were only ever on the very fringes. Lewis is really well respected but if Liverpool look to another LB then he will need to think about his future. Camacho I sort of feel may be the one to never get a real run at it and may not make it at Liverpool. With the approach tending to buying success, it rather puts the youngsters in a tough place.}

There are only so many juniors you can integrate into a squad competing for top honours - my picks would be

- Sturridge to be replaced by a top competitive forward, and Origi to be sold, with Brewster to step up (1 junior)
- Lallana to move on and Harry Wilson to step up (2 juniors) . Ox will be a big boost coming back and we still have Hendo, Gini, Fabinho, Milner, Shaqiri and Keita so I think we’re good in midfield
- Replace either Lovren or Matip with a top CB to compete with VVD and Gomez. Nat Philips can play in cup games and be our crisis fallback option (three juniors) .
- We need to top fullback to back up able to play both sides of the pitch to compete with Trent and Robbo and be able to push them for a starting position. Move on Moreno to create the space and then let Adam Lewis step up as backup for non critical games (four juniors) .

That would leave us recruiting
1 forward (for Sturridge)
1 CB (for Matip or Lovren)
1 fullback (for Moreno)

And letting 4 juniors fill the gaps left by Origi, Lallana, Clyne and an extra CB, with none of them needing to be thrown in the deep end because we’ll have senior players backing up every position barring an injury crisis.

I would add 1 midfielder to replace Milner.

Agree1 Disagree3

18 Feb 2019 07:28:40
I don’t think any of them would be happy to replace Origi Lallana or Clyne seen as they have about 5 starts between them for us in the last 2 years.

Agree1 Disagree1

18 Feb 2019 18:32:53
KK, I am sure they would play more if good enough.

Agree1 Disagree0

I think we could bed in Grujic and at least one of Camacho, Lewis, Hoever (if ready) or Brewster.

Agree0 Disagree0
