i know there is a lot of talk about our current struggles in the first team!

BUT can we all take a moment to appreciate how well our U23's and U18's are doing, really positive in the long run showing remarkable improvement. Especially considering there are a lot of players playing above their age group in both teams.

Agree17 Disagree1

15 Oct 2017 17:45:52
We have a talented, raw young forward, playing really well for Wales, that should of been on the bench ahead of Sturridge.


Agree12 Disagree6

15 Oct 2017 20:24:11
I got to say I'm disappointed not to have seen more of Woodburn this season. Has he played at all for us?

Agree9 Disagree2

15 Oct 2017 23:38:16
ye throw Woodburn out to the pack of wolves that is the liverpool fans.

Agree7 Disagree3

16 Oct 2017 00:58:44
I don’t agree at all faith. He is coming on for his country but doesn’t play at all for us. Sturridge was class but now doesn’t look like he’s trying. He didn’t burst a gut to make an impression on the few opportunities he has been given. If Woodburn was playing for other teams, spurs are the big ones I’m thinking of, he would at least get opportunities. I know if he’s played too young and gets grief it may shatter his confidence but at some point he may get pissed off waiting and bugger off to another club. I’m sure there’d be no shortage of offers either. I’d definitely give him a chance and I think he should be on the bench before sturridge and probably play after Solanke. But that’s just my opinion. After all they are left me arses. everybody has 1.

Agree1 Disagree2

16 Oct 2017 08:01:28
I'm all for throwing wooburn out there, just as long as he is out there to develop his game. If we sending him out there to, how you say, save our supposedly lost sEason, then no. Let the dude develop as he is.

Agree1 Disagree1

15 Oct 2017 16:23:09
Now if Lovren had just done what VVD did just now he'd be getting slated (Southampton Newcastle game)

Agree10 Disagree1

15 Oct 2017 16:52:40
Speaking of the same game, Lascelles is playing well again, I think we should have a look at him. He’s a very good defender, a leader and decent organiser.

Agree7 Disagree2

15 Oct 2017 16:57:12
Vvd is bang average, we spend 75 mill on him is will become the worst but in premier league history, the lack of decent centre backs is worrying.

Agree5 Disagree3

15 Oct 2017 17:16:57
Shelvey just magnificent passer of the ball! Another Benitez signing! Call him whatever, the lad is terrific passer!

Agree12 Disagree6

15 Oct 2017 17:20:19
I am of the opinion that lovren and VVD are very similar players. Both jump out of defence and would be both as bad in playing a high line we play. They both make mad rash challenges when completely unnecessary and can't do as the manager has told them to.

Agree3 Disagree3

15 Oct 2017 18:05:38

Yet Klopp is adamant on him and ONLY HIM!

Agree3 Disagree3

15 Oct 2017 19:14:56
Their is a major difference between playing a high line and park the bus as most prem teams play now. Either buy a centre back from a team that play a high line or one that can adapt and listen to instructions. VVD isn't suited to a high line with the challenges he makes and would get caught out.

Agree0 Disagree1

15 Oct 2017 20:00:37
We won't get him anyway, I really believe that as well. Not only will Southampton be stubborn again, Barcelona and Juve are looking at him as well. He won't be a Liverpool player. If and a big if we do get him, it wouldn't be in Jan IMO.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 20:40:45
Lascalles plays in a system where they park the bus. We don't play that way so bringing him in will yield the same woeful results that Everton is now seeing after Michael Keane played in an ultra defensive setup at Burnley. Like Nath said, we play a high line so get a CB who can play in that system or get one in who can be coached to play in that system otherwise, move on. As for VVD, I am concerned with his level of play right now as his mistakes are starting to mount. Is it cos he does not wanna play for them anymore hence he's downing tools or is he as rash as he looks? I don't know. I had my reservations about VVD last season BUT right now, he simply does not look bothered.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 22:10:53
VvD was playing entire game not interested. like the first 25 mins of Couts yesterday.

VVD would be another bad signing and would be pivotal of Klopps reign.

Yes, sad that Shelvy has good passing range decent game intelligence to go with his attitude issues. If that could be set right, he could be leading eng midfield for sure. He is bettet than most of them out there.

Was nice to see Pelligrino and Rafa againt one another.


Agree1 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 23:21:15
Harry I’m sure there’s loads of CBs that Klopp would like to sign but they have to a) be available for transfer b) want to come to us, and c) be at a price we can afford. VVD was the only one who ticked all of the above boxes of the CBs that we wanted to sign. End of. Stop using that as a stick to beat the manager with.

Agree0 Disagree4

16 Oct 2017 02:21:17
Give him a chance,
He's been out injured since January and is definitley playing within himself,
Add in all our nonsense during the transfer window and its no wonder he's below par,

Agree1 Disagree2

16 Oct 2017 06:00:01

Why don’t you name a few or read the post or check with the editors who we were interested! Lol!
The fact is there weren’t any! Koulibaly was the only one we were interested and that went no where!
Klop wants VVD! Either you accept Klopp is chasing a medicore, terrible, out of position Center backs, or change your opinion on the player!

Lol VVD would cost us in the excess of £70 mill and you claim he ticks all the boxes including FAIR TRANSFER FEE!

Your obsession over Klopp is a LOL!

Agree3 Disagree3

16 Oct 2017 07:45:44
The fact a load of grown men are saying LOL is enough to make me laugh out loud ;)

Agree2 Disagree2

16 Oct 2017 09:12:01
Napoli plays a high line and they score for absolute fun. Their defense is good if you compare it to their high line high attacking set up. But unlike us they don't complicate the midfield by playing hard core B2B players all over the pitch. They okay a specialist Holding mid which helps them to sweep the first and immediate danger thrown at to them. They also have a very good keeper ad two good full backs.

Are there any other team in Europe who plays high line? Let’s not buy anyone coz there aren't any!

Agree2 Disagree1

16 Oct 2017 10:57:38
Harry, several teams in Germany alone, play the high line. The German national team plays the high line as well and so do Barca.

Ed01 about these player or former player articles you are doing is it possible you could do one on gabriel batistuta one of my favourite players and am sure a read once that you held in high regards to.

Agree5 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, he is on the list.}

15 Oct 2017 14:25:04
Ed01, Are you doing a profile on me 😎😎. Longest serving poster. I love compliments 😄😄😄😄.

Agree4 Disagree3

{Ed001's Note - no one would believe it if I did.}

15 Oct 2017 14:31:11
Haha brilliant Harry.

Agree2 Disagree1

15 Oct 2017 14:31:17
Excellent mate really looking forward to that one a player that's guts me never played in the premier league a feel he would of been a monster, would of loved him to wear the the shirt of lfc in his prime.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - he was a special player. I used to love watching him.}

15 Oct 2017 14:32:01
Or you could do one on Ed025. Proper legend! 😎😎😎😎.

Agree3 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - you missed out the space, leg end mate.}

15 Oct 2017 14:32:17
Hey Ed001, just reading Harry’s suggestion then and it gave me an idea.
How about a little piece on the history of the site? How it started, how all the Ed’s came to be involved, longest serving posters, top posters like macca, most memorable posts, most stressful times, biggest scoops, how the site has grown (how the hits to the site have increased etc)
I mean I know most of the answers already from numerous posts over the years but would be nice to see it all in one article.

Agree6 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - I have added that to the list.}

15 Oct 2017 14:34:53
Change your username and Ed01 will do it.

15 Oct 2017 14:36:29
a complete guide to harry's user names should be the title.

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - that list would be a longgggggg list.}

15 Oct 2017 14:45:32
One hell of idea that mikey another one to look forward to that is.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 15:57:02
We all have those players that we view differently through the nostalgia glasses as being some of the best, which of the players today do the eds think are as special as the likes of batistuta?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - Lewandowski probably is the only one. Maybe Kane could become that kind of level.}

15 Oct 2017 17:03:12
😂 "List"? Sounds more like an encyclopaedia.
Good luck with it ed👍.

15 Oct 2017 18:44:43
id love that. batigol still is my all time favourite player.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 19:50:34
What about an article explaining which ed has gone to most extreme length of maintaining their sanity? Or the flip side which ed has gone the craziest?

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2017 02:30:31
The real Ronoldo (not the current one) would be a good one Ed,

Especially if it could clarify about the health issues that apparently caused his weight gain,

What a footballer when in his prime,

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I will try and do what I can, but not sure what I could confirm on his weight. A friend of my mam's was working for Nike at the time of the World Cup (which was great as I had all the training kits etc that were never released from the national teams straight out of their allotment of kits!) and she did say a few things. However it was a long time ago and I am not sure if me ma kept in touch with her so I can speak to her and clarify what she knew.}

15 Oct 2017 13:49:30
ed001 even though he played for everton could you do a article on Dixie dean should you find the time pal, also thank you for the match reviews I enjoy reading them very much. great site mate.

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - excellent shout mate, a true legend of the game. Added him to the list.}

15 Oct 2017 14:33:41
thanks ed001 appreciate that mate, keep up the good work.

Very good, a lot I didn't know in that article, thanks mate.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - me too mate, was really interesting researching it. Lots more on him but want to save some bits for when I do Sunderland managers.}

15 Oct 2017 14:53:39
Brilliant mate, must be interesting researching it and putting it into words. Nothing better then knowledge my friend!

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I love doing the research mate. Always had the ambition of knowing everything.}

15 Oct 2017 13:07:56
Personally I want to see AOC starting against Maribor, this should be the game where we score lots of goals and get some confidence back, hopefully can give AOC some confidences too.

Agree11 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 13:15:05
Good shout. Not his biggest fan but he showed energy and willing in his 15 minutes against United.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 13:44:38
I'd like to third that. For me against Maribor I'd like to see Solanke up top with Firminho just off him in a free role. Then I'd switch Salah to the left and Ox on the right. In the middle then I would have Coutinho and Hendo/ Can sitting. Personally I believe that would maintain our pace wide, give us more creativity in the middle with Coutinho and Firminho and make us more dangerous in attack.

Agree5 Disagree1

15 Oct 2017 14:04:19
Spot on Jayden, I'd like that too.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 14:18:03
Let's be honest lads. 3 points is the priority and a clean sheet has got to be top of the list. Klopp has to play his strongest 11 - if he even knows what that is!

If we have a two/ three goal cushion with 25 mins to go, then great, try a few players. Not from the start though.

It's not guaranteed that wewillwon, our last fewperformances prove that.

Get the points in the bag, champions league isn't the place for giving squad player as a run out imo.

Mr T.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 14:15:46
A midfield of Can - Firmino - Coutinho? If Can was a Fernandinho then this would beat City’s Fernandinho - Silva - KDB hands down! Can is a very good prospect but a long way off from a disciplined midfielder.

Agree0 Disagree9

15 Oct 2017 14:36:42
Like you said Mr T a win is the priority and the midfield 3 and front 3 who seem to be untouchable have only won once in last 8 games. So if there's a need for change then surely it's now. Like you said does Klopp know his strongest 11. And considering we spent 40 mill on Ox he should be regarded as higher than giving a squad player a run out. Especially with Mane injured.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 20:43:00
We simply have to win this game, end of. I too, would start Ox on the wing and play Cou in CM with Firmino up top.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 23:33:14
Hopefully yesterday is just the start for Ox. He’s had a tough time but did more in 10 minutes than Martial, Rashford, Mickey and Lukaku put together. Hopefully he will start to settle now and kick on.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Oct 2017 02:32:40
Its a must win game,

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 11:29:14
I posted the other day about DS needing to be moved on. And yesterday just confirmed it for me. We are playing Man U if there's one game you want the players to put some effort and fight in it's that game.
People say he needs games. But not for me. He's not going to get games if he doesn't want to run and close down from the front. Put in the hard work and you will get games. Jogging though the last 15-20 mins for me is not acceptable.
It happens to all players at some point legs have gone weather it's though injuries or age time to move on and find a striker that can score and run for the team.

Agree4 Disagree5

15 Oct 2017 12:02:21
Same here, show us you want to try and maybe he'd get more game time, yesterday he did nothing therefore how the hell can he be played more, you'd of thought given you've only got 15 or so mins to play you'd want to impress, but nothing was there from him. I'm not saying he should've scored, but he could've done a lot more then he did.

I'm a bit gutted to be honest regarding DS because I do think his time is up at the club which is a real shame.

Solanke ahead of him now for me.

Agree8 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 14:10:01
A think it time sturridge was moved on for all involved, he needs something different. Its plain to see that that the might reds and sturridge are no longer good for each other.

Agree3 Disagree1

15 Oct 2017 14:26:23
I agree with all the comments above about sturridge he's scared to break into a sprint in case he gets injured again. for me while mane is out i would play solanke up top and drop courtinho back leave hendo or wijnaldum out the 3 CM ain't working if you watched coutinho yesterday he kept dropping back into CM to get the ball in my opinion his best position i would alo give WARD a run out.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Oct 2017 20:46:36
With all of you here. Studge simply no longer has it and the worst thing for me was that Origi had to leave on loan cos Studge could not be moved (per Ed01). Origi may not be the finished article yet BUT he is determined, motivated and eager to do well and shows effort every time he plays. He has scored 22 goals in 2 seasons as a 3rd choice striker. There is NO team in the PL whose 3rd choice striker can boast about those numbers. NONE whatsoever. We could have used him now cos at least he would show effort, has pace and power to burn and is a good lad.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2017 02:37:39
He'd be Perfect for Celtic,
The manager knows and rates him

He'd get to play in the Champs league to put himself in the big shop window,
