Question for ed one.

Everytime coutinho gets an injury he seems to take an age to recover from it. iv'e noticed some players need a cameo followed by an hour in the next game then seem to be upto speed, but with couts he needs 6 games to get back into stride.

my question is, is this just how his body copes or is it because his style of play requires him to be at a hundred percent to affect a game. a half fit mane still looks dangerous but a half fit couts looks out of the game.


Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Mane's style is more physical than technical, though he has good technique, it is pace and movement that makes him so dangerous. That is much quicker to come back after a lay off. It is the tight control and twists and turns, because they are about timing as much as anything, that take time to come back.

Though, having said that, every player is different, so they wouldn't get back to their best at the same rate regardless. I remember Michael Owen once saying it took him a run of games to feel he was anywhere near the top of his game, whereas someone like Fowler could just come straight back and start scoring.}

20 Sep 2017 21:35:56
He came into full flow yesterday in the first half and Leicester had no clue to stop him! He is so vital!

Coutinho comes off they see there's no threat and bring on an attacking plsyer. His substitution changed the game.

Ed01, what, if anything, would you change to get the results going for us again or would you let it continue as is and see if the players settle down better.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I would give the midfield more defined roles. Make Can hold more and sit in front of the defence. Drop Mignolet and give Ward the rest of the season. Oh and not chop and change the back four.}

20 Sep 2017 20:06:04
It seems pretty simple to make those changes, it's not re-inventing the wheel πŸ˜€. It would be nice to see some stability in the team, a confident keeper gives confidence to the defenders in front of him, a more defensive minded mid supports when fbs get forward or to mop up second balls. Here's hoping he makes some changes as the attack looks great and will only get better, we just need to tighten up now at the back. Cheers for the reply.

Agree5 0Disagree

20 Sep 2017 20:27:01
Totally agree about the back 4. Its plain daft to keep changing them, at the very least until they get a real understanding. Arnold, Matip, Lovren and Robertson for me. I appreciate that some might want Gomez in but i just don't think playing alongside any of our centre halves would do him any good. Meanwhile Klopp continues with his soccer suicide, as Ron says, 2 at the back and 8 running around after the ball.

Hi Ed.
Would that be the reason why he is stalling on the new deal?

Maybe he doesn't want to be labled a dedicated holding midfielder as a career choice?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Because he wants to move to Italy and wants a way out of his contract.}

21 Sep 2017 00:15:11
Drop Henderson and mignolet.

Just wanted to say I feel a huge amount of sympathy for Oxlade chamberlain after his, let's just say, forgettable full debut. I can only begin to imagine the physical and psychological stresses he must have endured having worn socks that were too tight. As soon as that elastic acted like a tourniquet and restricted blood flow he was in very real danger on developing shin oedema and cankles! Now I know you can probably all imagine the physical discomfort but just for one moment imagine the mental trauma that probably plagued his entire performance that at full time in the changing room he would have to expose his clodhopper feet to the team thus being open to widespread ridicule. Genuinely feel for the guy.


Agree4 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - You make a good point, Asensio would have been ruled out for a month, at least. Best to cut Ox some slack.}

{Ed001's Note - you do realise his tongue is very firmly in his cheek right?}

20 Sep 2017 20:09:05
Absolutely right saying cut him some slack. He's still very young he's quick and he's English. People need to give him time he will develop into a very good player. If people think he's not up to scratch y where arsenal throwing money at him to stay, y did Chelsea put a bid in for him people need to get a grip and stop being negative.

Ed01, have you heard any complaints from Ed02 regarding sore feet from her high heels?

Agree2 1Disagree

20 Sep 2017 22:06:39
Chelsea only wanted him to up their English contingent and to play right wing back. Make no bones about it. He’d not get in their team ahead of Hazard, Willian or Pedro and he’d certainly not get any games in centre midfield for Chelsea.

I have an idea for Ed1 and fellow reds to debate to help us win trophies this season.

Klopp can set us up defensively and be flexible as he showed for the last few games of last season with a more pragmatic approach which led to us getting champions league football (and a few 1-0 wins) .

IMO he needs to adapt our style again for a few games so we start winning again, get a few clean sheets and build momentum.

Conte did it last season and won the title because if it.

However, I think we should go 4-2-3-1. This will give our back five more protection. The key to success with this formation (see Chelsea winning title under mourinho ) is having a fast wide 2 which we have with Mane and salah. Plus the skill of Coutinho and Bobby.

We would be stronger at the back and still strong up front but with a far better balance.

Will klopp do it? Unlikely. Could it make a huge difference to us winning trophies this season? It could certainly help!

Agree5 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - isn't that pretty much the plan anyway? It is just that the 2 will not be as defensive as you are intending.}

20 Sep 2017 19:31:01
And that's the key isn't it Ed1 - making the 2 more dedicated to protecting the back five.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - or we could go old school and use proper fullbacks to defend.}

20 Sep 2017 19:33:58
I think the current plan is 2-8.

2 central defenders and 8 chasing around after the ball.

Agree6 2Disagree

20 Sep 2017 19:35:15
we can still make it a bit defensive by having Matip as a DM along side Hendo or can and coutino as a AM.

The best part of Ron is he so adored on this page that he gets a free run of sarcasm! If that was my comment Ron I would be already taken down πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„. You are so lucky Ron!

Agree5 3Disagree

20 Sep 2017 19:50:16
I like bobby but he is no striker you would need a class striker in front of salah mane on the wings and bobby or coutinho in the middle and if we insist on wing backs a strong defensive midfielder to bridge the gap in defence.

Hi ed001
Whats your opinion about this bad run of of form we are in . is it players putting too much pressure on themselves or just not good enough. I think if we can get this bad run of form which we usually have in the second half of the season when there is lot more pressure sorted we can be good this season. YNWA.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it just looks like early season struggles to me as the team is bedding in. I think it was Paisley that used to say it took 10 games to get a team playing as a team.}

21 Sep 2017 00:23:48
We rotate every game.

Why is it whenever we play well (first half, Arsenal and lots of other big games last season) everyone always says how awful the opposition were. We did that to them. We were too fast too commuted we bamboozled them into their first half performance. Then their manager got into them and kicked them out of it, we gave them the lift of taking on paper our best player off, they brought on their best player and all of our team fell off a cliff because most of them have barely played any top flight minutes this season or in some cases their careers like grujic. Some of the football in the first half was cintilating.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2017 21:32:47
Have to add in that by not scoring we gave them a way back, at 2-0 or 3-0 they don't come out quite so cocky for the second half.
