I am curious to know of the Ed’s or other posters opinion on Curtis Jones, Yasser Larouci and Edvard Tagseth? They were recently named on the Guardians 60 most talented players born in 2001.
I have only seen glimpses of Jones during the recent pre season tour and have never seen the other 2 play.

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - not seen enough of them to judge them mate sorry.}

11 Oct 2018 19:02:42
Whilst all still ultimately considered kids there is a view that they could turn into good players Jones, tagseth, larouci in that order.

Jones has shown he has a lot of potential, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see him play a few times this season. Good dribbler with an eye for a pass he isn’t afraid to get stuck in. One of Gerard’s personal favourites, he has been improving and shown in preseason some flavour of what he can do.

Tagseth small yet mighty he was very much praised by Gerrard as well showed his quality at the U18 level good in the tackle and has shown decent positional awareness to break down attacks and recycle possession confidently.

Lastly larouci, very highly rated in France from the famous la havre youth school, took a while to settle due to various reasons very quick and skillful winger, been moved to Left back and since Adam Lewis has taken the step up hopefully we will see more opportunity.

Few others to mention: Bobby Duncan, Rys Williams and Rafa Camacho.

I think FINALLY since the days Rafa overhauled our youth system we are seeing the players and coaching needed to help push success in the system.

Ultimately we want to see more Trent’s coming through the system and with the teams increasing quality hopefully we will see some of these guys match that.

Agree9 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 20:31:35
Id agree with pretty much everything said here by Southern.
Jones looks great. If he keeps working hard I reckon he will make it.
Tagseth has a lovely left foot (but needs to realise his right foot is good for something other than standing on) . However he seems to be getting injured way too much. Could be because he is still getting used to the physicality of the league but it might hold him back.
There is some real competition amongst the youngsters which is great.

Agree2 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 20:41:03
Curtis Jones looked v good in pre season. Anyone know how the lad we bought from Chelsea is doing? Forget his name. CM.

11 Oct 2018 22:42:51
Cheers lads, it’ll be interesting to see if these kids can make the breakthrough into the first team over the next couple of years.

Hi ED001, I hope that you are good and your back is better. I was wondering if you could please add to your ever growing list a player profile on my all-time favourite footballer - John Barnes. I think he was a tremendously talented footballer and it would be great to see how he would compare with the top tier of talent of today? I have searched the site to see if anything similar was done previously that maybe I had missed but could not find anything.
Also I wanted to say that, although I am not a regular poster, I ritually read the posts on a daily basis and I gain so much knowledge/ insight from ED001 and ED002 and fellow Reds. I am humbled by how much you guys know and can share. I also enjoy reading your match reviews and always look forward to them following matches. Cheers!

Agree7 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - nice choice, I can remember sitting there holding my breath each time he was fouled in case he was hurt when I was a kid. Wonderful player, I will enjoy doing a profile on him. And thank you for the compliments, nice to know you enjoy them, makes it worth doing them.}

11 Oct 2018 18:23:11
Great shout my favourite player growing up had the Candy kit with 10 on the back . proper short shorts too.

My favourite Liverpool player ever.

11 Oct 2018 18:34:59
Great post KPee.

I was a big big fan of John Barnes and his amazing crosses, what a left foot he had!
Worked wonders with Beardsley!
JB was awsome, his step-overs, back heels and little shimmy to one side but quickly switch to the other side.

And share your sentiment about this website too.

11 Oct 2018 19:16:08
I met Barnes in the summer. Got a signed signed photo and everything. Really nice bloke.

Agree6 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 20:00:43
I met him at the "Conti" club in Liverpool in the later days of his playing career. Having had a few shandies, the first words to come out of my mouth were, "Hey John, you're not as fat as you look on the telly". He just laughed and said "Thanks mate". My claim to fame, lol.

Agree3 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 20:32:23
Great shout. My favourite player too. now I look back at the climate he was playing in it makes it all the more amazing how good he was.

I will look forward to reading this profile.

Agree3 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 22:46:32
He was my boyhood hero. Still is, come to think of it. In my mind he was the greatest player since Pele. pace, power, precision, he had it all. His goal against Brazil showcased all his talents in just a few seconds. Oh to go back in time and see him playing again. thank God for YouTube😎.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Oct 2018 12:22:46
Thanks Ed001, Guys,

It’s great that we share the same sentiments.
My very first LFC top was the final one they did with the Crown Paints before the sponsorship deal ended. I had the number 10 on the reverse. Of course back then, they didn’t have players names on the reverse (showing my age now) . Like yourselves I idolised him and tried to play like him. As a player he was just something else. He could dribble effortlessly and make it look so simple and skip passed 1-3 players at a given time. He had a great eye for a pass/ through ball. Crossing ability was accurate. Scored some amazing ‘rare headed goals’ as they used to say. Free kick ability was top notch. Aside from these abilities some of things we do not often mention is his pace, power, closing down the ball, technical ability, radical change of position due to injury, and of course playing in a period when there were many crowd taunts towards him. People today, talk about the ‘usual’ 2 some of Messi and Ronaldo whom I agree are great gifted footballers of today. Call me biased but I would put Barnes at his peak above them. I have not yet had the chance to meet him, but would love to and have a photograph and autograph and maybe sing along with him his rap on World in Motion. I am looking forward to ED001’s profile as he really does see things from a totally different perspective to us mere mortals and that includes commentators and analysts.

I was wondering the same stoneage, it's being a while. If you're reading Putney, I hope you're well mate.

{Ed001's Note - he did post up a lengthy post about it, but it wasn't banter so went on one of the other pages, I forget which one. It was far too serious to post up on this page but well worth a read.}

Cheers Ed, I don't know how I missed that post mate because I usually try and keep an eye on all of the pages. How are you today Ed, your back still ok I hope? have a good evening Ed.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I think it was while you were on your holidays mate. Yes much better now, pretty much back to normal. How are things with you?}

11 Oct 2018 20:02:19
Ah I see Ed, that makes sense now. Glad to hear you're doing well now mate because it can be bloody brutal some back problems, thankfully it wasn't for you.

Yeah I'm alright thank you very much mate, stressful couple of days because we're selling the house, a friend of mine has pneumonia, another friend has been given 6 weeks to live, one of my boys is being bullied at school etc the list just goes on honestly mate it hasn't been my week at all but, it'll all be fine, we get there in the end don't we mate. Yesterday was worse than today so that's a positive!

Thanks Ed, a good read as usual. 'Bale modern day Darren Anderton'

red deano YNWA.

{Ed001's Note - it seemed to fit. I did find it funny reading Giggs trying to talk about players not being fit for friendlies though!}

11 Oct 2018 07:53:20
Thanks for the round-up Ed. Just wondering about Jardim; was it a case of them losing too many players consistently or any other factor in your opinion? It’s a shame though.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - they just lost too many players and were buying young prospects to replace them but he did not have time to bed them in and develop them. When you sell teenagers the minute they star, you are not giving time for the team to grow.}

11 Oct 2018 10:04:18
Great read as always ed, much appreciated. Don’t think giggs should worry about bale for Ireland match. At this point O’Neil and keane have been woefully found out. Have a good day mate.

Agree2 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 09:22:31
Thanks Ed. Good appointment by Villa. As for the Prem Legaue 2, first and foremost it could devalue the prem league brand. Clearly Leeds just want more cash for themselves. Surely the current formula is transparent and fair in the championship? Get on with it Leeds and get promoted.

Agree2 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 08:26:26
Love the daily reviews ed, thank you. Mind if I ask how the article is coming along?

Agree0 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - which one mate? I am still doing research on Hearns that is not much about him as a person or his life outside of boxing, oddly. I will take a break for a bit in a bit just to do a quick article like a player profile or something so there will be something out tonight new and then go back to the research afterwards.}

11 Oct 2018 08:36:27
Brill as always, cheers Ed, have a good day mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate.}

11 Oct 2018 08:16:21
Cheers ed001, are Monaco seriously considering bringing in Henry for Jardim? I guess its part of their continued transfer strategy to sell or get rid of anyone invovled in their title win and replace them with less talented/ unproven individuals. Wonder where Jardim will go.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - it does seem an odd choice. Everyone who knows Henry says that he has problems relating to other people. That is not usually a good quality in a manager.}

11 Oct 2018 10:44:58
Thanks Ed. I don't understand the logic behind a PM 2. Marketing ploy maybe? Have a great day and I hope your back is better.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I am thinking it means they would share less of the pie with League 1 and 2. While Radrizzani talks about less clubs going into admin etc, what he means is more if that is the case.}

11 Oct 2018 10:57:46
If I were a publisher and Berkay came to me with that story, I’d send him away and tell him to come back when he had managed to come up with something a little more credible. Or, at least with a few more details of what happened. I mean, getting punched for sending your own wife wife home? (I think if that was the case the manner in which you act towards her may be cause for the punch) . Or turning up to hospital to apologise with a gun? (What!? ) I know there are some people who’s lives are like soap operas but is that still not just a little far fetched and one sided to incur sympathy or even credence as a story?

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 10:58:45
Cheers ed it was the comparison between this squad and the 08/ 09 squad.

{Ed001's Note - oh Fowler I completely forgot about that one! I will swap over to finish that off now. Thank you for reminding me. Hopefully finish that tonight.}

{Ed001's Note - sorry I forgot. For some reason I had thought I finished it.}

11 Oct 2018 12:21:37
Cirque du soleil should have chosen neymar instead of messi. Way more material out of him for a show like that. One match alone could take up a good chunk of the show with all the flying about and arm flapping that man does.

Agree2 Disagree0

10 Oct 2018 18:47:37
I see lallana is fit again. IF and that's a big IF he can get back to the form he showed a couple of seasons ago then he could be a major boost to the midfield. 🤞.

Agree11 Disagree12

10 Oct 2018 19:10:24
That's a BIGGG if, OP.

Agree12 Disagree1

10 Oct 2018 19:25:38
Man, saw a post yesterday about Clyne and the Lallana today lol blasts from the past aye, totally forgot they are in the squad. In Lallana's case it be nice to see him string some minutes together.

Agree11 Disagree0

10 Oct 2018 19:43:39
I have my doubts as to whether he can work effectively with this front 3. Much rather have Shaqiri take up that midfield role.

Agree8 Disagree3

10 Oct 2018 20:03:34
I can see 'Remember a fit Lallana' gang coming back to the site 😂😂. Should have sold him last summer and replaced by James Maddison!

Agree6 Disagree10

10 Oct 2018 20:05:53
He has always been a talented player, a fit lallana can only be a good thing.

Agree7 Disagree4

10 Oct 2018 20:36:31
It’ll take him a LONG time to get back to his pre-injury form 🤝.

Agree6 Disagree1

10 Oct 2018 20:38:30
I agree ra, I honestly don't think the lad has a future at the club. Of course though I hope I'm wrong, I just can't see how he's going to fit in, Shaqiri fits our style much better. I see Lallana in cup games maybe but that's about it.

Agree10 Disagree2

10 Oct 2018 21:48:08
Like any sensible supporter I hope that he regains his form of a couple of seasons ago and becomes an important player for us again.

Agree4 Disagree4

11 Oct 2018 05:35:20
Lallana has not touched the ball in two years. please stop expecting miracles from him. its not going to happen. He won't be starting any game soon.

Agree4 Disagree3

11 Oct 2018 09:03:21
Sell Lallana in Jan and buy Fekir.

Agree2 Disagree1

11 Oct 2018 09:55:07
Salah, that first year when Klopp came in, Lallana was vital to the pressing game. That was his strong skill, while he didn't offer much with his offensive side given the pirouettes and doodling with the ball. He was the triger for the press. Now Firmino has that role. And Henderson, Milner and Wijnaldum have taken the press to a higher level (when we decide to use it) . What can Lallana do now? I agree with you in the need to move him on. It's doing a disservice to his career to hold on to him. Let him move on, get one last payday and make the most of it for himself.

Agree2 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 11:58:54
Nailed it ArAay.
Lallana could only press! He was under the shadow of Coutinho all his life. He has no vision to play deeper. Lallana has no pace to play on the flanks and he isn’t good enough with his vision to play deeper.

Agree2 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 12:09:45
salah fail to see your point? shaq was largely not wanted for his laziness and in the 200 minutes of first team football has proved us wrong which I'm thankful for. but that's about 3 games.

How that is a better fit than one of the most hard working players that we have had the only 2 years ago was one of the best in our team and shown his quality?

the lallana of 2 years ago is perfect for our system and would add some much needed impetus to our attack if we can get him back to that level.

Hes a quality player that blends in our system seamlessly - whether he's here beyond this season is a big question but a fully fit lallana on the bench could still play a big part in the seasons title race.

Agree1 Disagree2

11 Oct 2018 12:48:00
I agree that it will take a lot of time for Lallana to get ip to speed given a Long time out on the sidelines. However, I am not sure if Shaqiri is ready to play in a pressing midfield 3. It will take him time to get used to our style, and with the press you need all 10 outfielders contributing as one unit. Not saying he won’t get there, but it will take time (like it did with the Ox) . I think Keita will come in in midfield and try to play the more attacking / Creative role and Shaq will continue to cover for the front 3 along with Sturridge.

Agree1 Disagree1

11 Oct 2018 13:17:39
A loan deal for him would be ideal to improve his fitness and we can recoup some of the wages. I’d sooner him show his worth, rather than ride on one seasons performance. Good luck to him either way!

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 14:23:34
You've said it yourself swish, the lallana of two years ago, sure would be brill for the team now but we're 2 years later mate and he's not good enough for this team accept that or not that's your opinion but please tell me, do you think he can add anything to this team? He can't and Shaqiri can, a player I was against us signing but he's certainly proved he's capable.

Agreed ra.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 16:03:32
Oh Man. Harry is agreeing with me. The World is coming to an end. And I'm going to start losing my hair like Ed001. 😵.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 19:53:20
Lallana will do well to get into this team as it is cos like it or not, the team he thrived in two years ago is light years behind this one. In fact, I would understand if he ha been playing a bit in the past two years BUT he has not, unfortunately. His task is now two-fold. First regain full fitness and secondly, try to get up to speed with a team that has left him way behind. Good luck, Adam lad cos you're going to need every ounce of it going forward.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Oct 2018 18:15:23
Was thinking about the development of players like robertson and how he has surprised people with how much he has developed over the last year and just wondered which players has surprised you most in terms of how good they have turned out or how poor? .
I think for me firmino has really impressed as i knew very little about it when we signed him. In terms of being disappointed i would say joe cole. I was made up when we signed him thought he could be special for us but was a big let down and never got going at all.

Interested to hear peoples oponions?

Agree3 Disagree0

10 Oct 2018 18:29:58
Milner for me has been a revelation, it has just clicked for him here. TAA and Gomez also have been excellent. Moreno situation has been a shame as I thought he could be very good but has had more than enough time here, hopefully for him he might go elsewhere and do well. Markovic is another.

Agree4 Disagree0

10 Oct 2018 18:41:01
Luis Alberto was a major let down. Came with a big reputation but barely played. Joe Cole of course, is a good one. Stewart downing wasn't good enough. And then there's Andy Carroll and Christian benteke.

Suarez was better than I'd dared to dream and firmino is a great shout. In his first season I wasn't impressed but in all honesty I didn't see many full games only motd.
I was very impressed with klavan last season, I thought he had really improved. Being a lcb like vvd I'm not surprised he moved on.

And then there is Danny sturridge, I was hoping we would go for him months before he left Chelsea, before the rumours started and he was better than I thought he'd be. If he hadn't had those awful injuries he could have won the Baldon d'or or at least seriously knocked on that door.

Agree4 Disagree1

10 Oct 2018 18:46:22
For Good, I would say Lovern/ Hendo/ Lucas. They developed infront of us. They are scrutinized every game yet they gave all. There are people, almost everyone, ready to jump on their back at every given chance yet they showed fight. They are handling different type of pressure but they didn't let us down as often as people suggest

On poor, Ibe/ Ojo/ Suso (In our shirts) . I really thought they will step up and be some player for a us. Even though they will be a football player but not in our jersey.

Agree3 Disagree0

10 Oct 2018 18:51:12
I know most people probably think it was par for course, but one of the biggest letdowns for me was Mario Balotelli. Sure, he's always been lazy on the pitch and wild off it, but at Inter, City, Milan and Italy he banged in goals (he's got quite a decent strike rate for Nice now too) . However, he couldn't score to save his life with us, and on top of that, the antics and entertainment that's followed him throughout his career seemed to have deserted him too.

Agree3 Disagree0

10 Oct 2018 19:47:34
I think Aquilani has been the biggest letdown. We had just let Alonso go to Real and he was supposed to have come in and taken over the role. He never did and Alonso's role has never been replaced ever since.

Agree7 Disagree0

10 Oct 2018 20:07:54
Aquilani is a good shout, and ballotelli.

Lucas is a brilliant shout for a player who developed well. I'll always love Lucas.

Agree5 Disagree0

10 Oct 2018 20:05:53
Spot on ArAy 1969. Aquilani started Rafa’s decline! You don’t replace Xabi! They are born once in 100 years 😎.

Harry Kewell, Ziege - big disappointments

Sami Hyypia - never heard of him, became an Anfield legend.

Agree6 Disagree0

10 Oct 2018 21:46:32
The biggest disappointment was Stan Collymore, so much talent wasted.
The biggest surprise was Rob Jones, he would have won 100 caps for England if it wasn’t for injuries.

Agree3 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 00:18:37
Lovren for both answers. When he initially joined he was a quality defender for southampton and it all just fell to pieces. After so many consistently bad performances and all the backlash, how he ended up becoming a dependable centre back for us, particularly after the spurs game last year, i will never know. A testament to his true ability and character. Also sturridge because i never knew how good he would become and how rapidly his star would fall, a colossal shame for football as a whole.

Agree2 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 00:46:56
Morientes big let down
Mcallister really surprised me.

Agree5 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 05:42:00
biggest surprise for me was Christian benteke. i though he would lit the league because he had everything as a striker pace power skill. he should have been a better Drogba. That goal against united! God how he flopped.
a player that turned out too good was definitely mo salah, when he signed i wasnt sure he even fit the bill and definitely i didn't think he was a klopp type player. he scored record number of goals in his first season.

Agree3 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 08:33:34
Hyypia is a great shout what a signing, couts i could see a bit of magic in from the start but how he improved every year was impressive, alonso obviously needs to be on the list but the winner has to be suarez for me, i couldn't believe how good he was from day one, on and off the ball he was another class for us.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 09:36:53
Luis Alberto has been fantastic in Italy I do think if he was given actual game time he would of been great for us.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 12:40:33
blimey, real mixed bag here. luis alberto coat about 6m and was pretty much just a kid. surely expectation couldn't be that high!? Milner? been great this season and in the year he played left back but prior to that there was a massive hate factor behind him ( I've never understood why) . for turning good it would be alonso cos i didn't know know much about him and i doubt many of us is, hypia and riise would also be up there. For bad i think cole, Kewell, riedle, morientes are all good calls for under delivering and litmanen too ( but this one was because we had a manager that didn't play to his strengths)

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2018 13:22:33
Alonso for me. Alongside Gerrard, we had such anicredible midfield! I will never get over his move to Madrid!

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Oct 2018 11:51:26
I've kept you waiting again, I apologise. But like a fine wine the Loan report only gets better the longer you leave it.

11 reds were in action this weekend with only two missing out through injury. A further 3 were not involved despite being fit for selection.

Lets start with the bad.

Marko Grujic and Connor Randall continue their recoveries from injuries and therefore were not fit for selection.

Shamal George was again an unused sub for Tranmere, he must have his own personal spot on the bench by now.

Arroyo was not selected for Gents match day squad although it turned out to be a blessing in disguise and Ben Woodburn now can't even make the bench for Sheffield United, a loan move that once looked so promising is now turning into a bit of a disaster.

Back to Gent and the fortunes of Awoniyi who did make the match day squad.
Awoniyi started up top as Gent took on league leaders Genk. It was a performance to forget as the hosts lost 5-1! Awoniyi being subbed after 55 minutes. Things are not quite clicking for the young man yet this season.

After staring for Rangers in their Mid Week Europa League victory Ryan Kent continued his good form with a MOTM display as Rangers took on the leaders of the SPL Hearts.
Rangers took an early lead and dominated throughout eventually winning the match 3-1.
Ryan Kent capped his performance with a goal finishing off a well worked free kick routine.
Ejaria also featured in both Rangers victories dominating the midfield. He played the full 90 in the Europa but was subbed after 70 at the weekend.

Karius had a week to forget as he made another high profile error on the European stage.
A cross from the right that should of been a routine catch slipped through his fingers and into the back of the net. Besiktas went on to lose the game 2-0.
At the weekend he was better but it was anxious display as Besiktas drew 2-2 with Konyaspor.

Allan made his second start for Eintracht at the weekend but it was not as memorable as his first.
Struggling to make an impact on the game and on a booking Allan was hooked at half time in a tactically switch. Eintracht went on to beat Hoffenheim 2-1.

Ojo currently finds himself in the role of impact sub and that continued this weekend. Ojo came on late in the game as Reims drew 0-0 with Nimes on Sunday.

Danny Ings didn't have the greatest game as Southampton lost 3-0 to Chelsea at the weekend. It was a lively performance from the Liverpool loanee but he should of had a brace missing two easy chances throughout the 90 minutes. The first came at 0-0 somehow spooning the ball over the bar from 4 yards!
Danny Ings is nothing if not resilient and I am sure he will be back to best in no time.

Harry Wilson came off the bench as Derby drew 1-1 with QPR on Saturday.

Adam Bogdan continues to impress in Scotland as he kept his fourth successive clean sheet for Hibs as they beat Hamilton 6-0 on Sunday, albeit he had very little to do.

Doncaster lost 4-0 to Fleetwood at the weekend despite the best efforts of Herbie Kane.
Kane picked up the Doncaster fans MOTM award for his efforts.

Corey Whelan played the full 90 as Crewe lost 1-0 to League leaders Lincoln.

And that red fans, is your lot.

Cheers Cara, always an interesting read. Glad Kent's loan to rangers is going well, good lad. I'd love if either him or Wilson played a part next year, even as a squad player (though it doesn't look likely at the minute) .

Sad to hear Woodburn's loan isn't going well. If it continues to go the way its gone do any of the Ed's think he'll be recalled?

Wilson and Kent are the next two to break into the first team. Two brilliant wingers.

Legend carra. Some players are confidence players and maybe this explains Woodburn poor loan form. It must be hard for these, let's be honest, children. Going to a strange city, with team mates you don't know and may even resent you for being from a big club like Liverpool. There may be another couple of AMs trying to stake a claim or kick start a career.

I mean, we know how good woody is, I'd have him over any Sheffield United player. I can't help thinking maybe rangers would have been a better loan, with stevie g to look out for him. Look at the two boys shining in the Scottish prem. But you never know in football. Utd get an injury and Ben gets his shot.

Also, FAIR PLAY ADAM BOGDAN! Sometimes a figure of ridicule, the lad is showing he does have some real talent. 4 consecutive clean sheets is no mean feat.
