Review Of The Day 15th February 2019

{Ed's Note - Ed001 has posted a new article entitled, Review Of The Day 15th February 2019

15 Feb 2019 07:35:26
Bale cannot be that stupid. did he made that gesture for real!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - yes mate.}

15 Feb 2019 09:05:49
Cheers Ed. Is there a bigger cheat in world football than ramos? Can't stand the man. Have a good day mate.

Agree5 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - if there is one, I can't think of him.}

15 Feb 2019 09:11:59
if he is banned for 12 games i think that is most probably the end of Bale at Madrid (though i think he is there till 2022).
Ed001 would you like him at liverpool? if his wages were not astronomical, i think he would be worth a look at.

Agree1 Disagree7

{Ed001's Note - no he is a moron, doesn't bother trying half the time, hates Liverpool, always injured, on obscene wages and doesn't do tracking back any more as he thinks he is too good for that. I would rather the big headed gimp stayed in another country so I don't have to suffer the misfortune of watching him play.}

15 Feb 2019 09:52:30
Wooops! Not your fav player then ed ay 😂.

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - not in the slightest. He had so much potential, worked so hard to make himself into a quality player then got his move to Madrid and it all went to his head.}

15 Feb 2019 10:24:49
What does that gesture mean Ed if you can say?
And agreed, he’s a moron.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I don't know for sure, I was told while I was out there but it was difficult to understand the exact explanation, probably a bit like trying to explain why flicking the Vs is offensive in the UK I guess. However I got the idea it means similar to f*** you or go f*** yourself from the way it was described. It certainly did not go down well with the crowd as it brought a chorus of boos.}

15 Feb 2019 10:55:12
Gareth Bale? Enough said!

Also sad to see Ravel Morrison's promising career continuing to slide. He was touted as a potential superstar for England and club. DO you know the story there, Ed001?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - he thinks he is a gangsta, got booted out of Man Utd for helping himself to things that did not belong to him in the dressing room and his attitude has not improved since leaving. Needs to grow up.}

15 Feb 2019 11:25:30
Eds it means "up yours" similar to our v finger sign, totally agree about being a moron it seems to be a trait of real Madrid getting good footballers and then they think there are better than anyone else, they seem to have quite a few of them.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - thank you for that mate.}

15 Feb 2019 11:26:16
On fairness to bale. I guess it's hard to keep your feet on the ground when you make a record move to Madrid. Every one in that team has an ego, has to have an ego. And tbf, bale was f#@@ing class in his last year at spurs.

I remember him scoring an amazing but heart breaking goal last year.

Agree1 Disagree2

15 Feb 2019 14:22:08
Hi Ed, quick question, with Dwight Gayle admitting deception and getting a ban for it, can you ever see the rules being changed in instances like this where it has clearly cost a team two points, to have the points reversed? I personally can't see it happening as it opens the door for any incorrect decision to have the same done with it but just something a few of us were talking about so thought I'd ask your opinion.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I think you have hit the nail on the head. Instead they will try and use VAR to stop it earlier.}

15 Feb 2019 19:52:43
I saw the Atleti-RM game and saw Bale make that gesture. He is truly dim, that lad.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2019 21:47:09
Bale? Not a team player, I wouldn’t have him on a Bosman. Too disruptive.

Agree0 Disagree0

Liverpool Summer Transfers

Hi all

Apart from our known interest in Laxalt, who else do we think we may go for in the summer? Can anyone update?

Sorry Ed02 I know you gave some suggestions of potential players but were your view I think rather than who Liverpool were after.

Agree2 Disagree6

14 Feb 2019 22:34:05
It wasnt Ed 02 views, it was what he knows from his vast knowledge. If there is someone who knows about Liverpools interest in certain players its the Eds, very rarely posters gets it right most of the time its just guess work.

Agree6 Disagree2

15 Feb 2019 09:25:48
I'll put your post down to naivety mate as i don't believe you meant any offence but Ed02's knowledge of prospective transfers not just for Liverpool but globally, is amazing. You should look up the sharkopod.

In fact Ed02 knowledge of everything football is mind blowing. We are incredibly lucky to have him along with Ed01, 25 and 333 with all the time they put into this site. So thank you Eds.

Agree3 Disagree1

15 Feb 2019 19:54:13
Ed02 is a genius when he talks transfers in general, LFC or anywhere in Europe or around the world. His knowledge is unrivaled, INO.

Saul Niguez

14 Feb 2019 20:31:53
{Ed's Note - Ed001 has posted a new player profile about, Saul Niguez

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 20:42:14
Great read Ed. my perfect summer transfer window would be Saul Niguez and Wan Bissaka, thus creating a new midfielder in TAA

Ta la.

Agree4 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate, Saul is one of my favourite players around currently.}

14 Feb 2019 20:52:25
He is without a doubt a Klopp type of player and would excel under him in my opinion, he would knock the aggression out of him straight away, if it was ever there as you say it probably comes from Simone.

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - I think Saul would excel anywhere and Barcelona should have paid whatever it took to sign him, rather than wasting the money on Coutinho and Malcom.}

15 Feb 2019 04:14:56
Ed, on the subject of Saul playing in a Simeone system, what do make of Simeone as a manager?
His style of play does not entertain me in the slightest, but I do believe he is a top class manager who has been fantastic for Atletico as a club. They are a match made in heaven looking from the outside.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - so long as I don't have to watch them too much it is fine, but I would hate that to be what I had to watch every week. He has done ok, but Real Madrid and Barca have not been that special for a long time, both have been massively over-reliant on one player, yet Simeone has not found a way to consistently beat them, so I am not convinced to be honest. Good manager but a top class manager should have them top regularly. They are a much bigger club than most people realise.}

15 Feb 2019 07:04:21
He sounds like an excellent Milner replacement when he leaves us!

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - except for being unable to play full back he would be.}

15 Feb 2019 07:28:43
I agree with a lot of what you said about Simeone, Ed, and I have to admit I’m not fully aware of how big Atletico are.
Whilst both of his chief rivals have been over-reliant on one player, the era of football from 2009 to 2018 was about having one generation-defining player to allow teams to win things. Real and Barcelona have also had other fantastic players within that period to compliment Ronaldo and Messi. Only 3/ 10 times in the above period has the Champions League not been won by a team without either of them. I would even suggest that in no period since around the 1950’s (excluding Argentina in the 70’s and 80’s) have elite teams been so reliant on one genius. If Barcelona and Real were not winning the CL every season, I would agree that perhaps Simeone should be doing more. But he’s been up against two clubs with two of football’s all-time greats in their line-up who have consistently been dominating in Europe and setting numerous records along the way.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I am not interested in the cup competitions, I am talking about the league, which is the true measure of a team, rather than just if one player can perform on one particular day. That is where Simeone should be performing better. Champions League panders to these poorly constructed teams by allowing them to be overloaded with attackers at the expense of a well-balanced team, because luck and having them turn up for the TV cameras is all it takes. The league is when a manager's skill matters.}

15 Feb 2019 07:34:11
fell in love with saul maybe 2 seasons ago. can't remember the game but he set up a goal with a cross kind of on 10-15 yards from the corner of the box using the outside of his boot. beautiful shape straight onto the head of his team mate for a goal.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2019 11:46:51
Anyone remember stoicov (spelling) Bulgarian who scored that amazing World Cup worldie, where he drove at the defence that seemed to open before him like the red sea for moses. What a goal.

Where did he play his club footy. It was in the day when we didn't have many foreign players in the league over here.

That goal reminds me of the ox.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2019 19:58:51
I knew Saul when he was on loan at Rayo Vallecano and that was the time we were linked to him around BR's time. Since then, he has stepped up a couple of notches. Saul is a beast of a player, one who makes football look easy. I would not mind him at LFC, either. Simeone? He is a very good manager. Top class? No way. Like Ed01 said, he needs to do more cos since they won La Liga in 13/ 14, they have not stepped up in the league to fully challenge RM and Barcelona who really, have not been pulling any trees for the reasons Ed mentioned.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2019 21:41:44
Great read Ed. I must admit I've only seen him play a handful of times but after reading that I'd like to see more of him. Thanks mate.

Day two and three Marbella Training Camp- Milner and Fabhino and Shaqiri (abdominal strain ) returned to normal training on day two there was only one session in the morning. Klopp never went out last night for dinner he watched a Champions League Game don't think it would of been Real Madrid as they are legalised cheats, can safely say it must of been the only other game available Spuds versus Dortmund.
Day Three: Two sessions today the cameras were not allowed to film as tactical work for Bayern being worked on today. Good News Gina took part today in both sessions morning and afternoon. Its the last day tomorrow as the team return home. All the above is taken from the LFC Channel as because i am 007 i have not been spying on them covertly?

Agree9 Disagree2

14 Feb 2019 20:05:26
Better watch it sky will be doing a report on you for spying and turn you on.

15 Feb 2019 08:36:21
Is this 007, reader or Ed007?. Just a confusion.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - it is not Ed007, you can tell because his comments are intelligible.}

15 Feb 2019 11:49:02

Michael O'Neill

{Ed's Note - Ed001 has posted a new manager profile about, Michael O'Neill

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Feb 2019 05:45:13
god i kept on reading, thinking of Martin o'neill and was wondering what are you on until I realised its Micheal o'neill.
Qait are they brothers?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - no they aren't, though Martin's full name is Martin Hugh Michael O'Neill.... I am actually doing Martin's manager profile now.

15 Feb 2019 06:33:18
Haha. Martin's would definitely be the one to read :)

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2019 21:50:57
You could stop writing anything about Martin O'Neill after about 2003 and just complete the profile with "thereafter he never moved on and is now a footballing dinosaur that makes Houllier look like an attacking manager"?

Michael O'Neill's achievements with Shamrock Rovers in the LOI looked very good, until Stephen Kenny's Dundalk came along and showed you could try and play actual football in Europe and get much the same outcome as turtling up and hoping to bore the opposition to submission as O'Neill had done. (And Fenlon, Richardson, Doolin, etc. had before him) .

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 08:51:15
I read recently that now have the second highest wage bill as per the recent published accounts.

Is this the case? I find it suprising we are above city given the salaries they are paying and that these figures are based on prior contract extension of a number of players!

Agree2 Disagree5

{Ed002's Note - I thought Liverpool were 4th highest.}

14 Feb 2019 09:37:17
given that we have players like studger moreno lallana origi migs on massive wages and milner on very high wages too. so that six alone add 600k to the wage bill and only milner is worth it.
still id say united, city and chelsea should be above us in terms of wages.

Agree3 Disagree3

14 Feb 2019 10:35:56
I think Milner is worth every penny for what he brings on the field and off the field as a model pro.

Agree12 Disagree2

14 Feb 2019 11:25:58
I think that's what akrubbish also mentioning.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 11:35:03
It was a recent this is Anfield article saying we have £263 vs £260 city’s.

Agree2 Disagree1

14 Feb 2019 14:08:53
It's not true
We are 4th on wage bill.

Agree5 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 15:02:16
Those ‘published’ wage bills are a misnomer. Liverpool included all players and staff in their figures. Other clubs may not have.

Agree4 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 15:13:20
I do not know much about this but are players wages available to the public? Seems odd that we would be able to find out exactly how much each player earns.

Do you think different club weight how the players earning are paid. For example club A may heavily pay on apperances but club B may weight it more on standard weekly amount?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - The contracts vary, but the accounts show the amounts paid. Clubs are required to declare this because of major issues in the past with image rights (n longer an issue in England but it is elsewhere).}

14 Feb 2019 15:19:16
I don’t claim to be in the know but that is absolute rubbish. United and City will have higher than us for sure, and i would imagine Chelsea would have higher than us also, potentially even Arsenal. The only one i know for definite we are higher than is Spurs.

Agree2 Disagree1

14 Feb 2019 17:56:44
I’d say a lot of teams have a higher wage bill than Spurs though. They have a relatively small squad and Spurs top earner earns minimum wage with a packet of space raiders as a goal bonus!

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 18:06:04
Sorry Akrubbish bro, name changed due to my spelling correction. Sorry man.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 19:41:57
Ed02, I thought we were 5th really.

15 Feb 2019 07:02:57

Review Of The Day 14th February 2019

14 Feb 2019 07:29:01
{Ed's Note - Ed001 has posted a new article entitled, Review Of The Day 14th February 2019

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 08:52:32
Cheers Ed. Really interesting stuff about the effects of heading a solid ball at a young age. Never really thought about it but it does make sense. What's your take on it?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - should stop kids heading hard balls, there is no need for it. They should not be playing full sided games on full size pitches either. If you want them to improve the pitches need to be smaller and the ball should not be allowed to go above waist height. Plenty of time to learn to head when you are older.}

14 Feb 2019 09:38:53
Completely agree Ed. I like the idea of not allowing the ball above waist height. That would put more focus on passing and technique at grassroots level and maybe we would eventually see the end of the allardyce style football?

Agree1 Disagree2

{Ed001's Note - it certainly would go some way to getting rid of the dinosaurs.}

14 Feb 2019 10:17:47
Ed01, the Valentine image, is it real?

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - there are companies that do things like this in the UK yes.}

14 Feb 2019 10:41:06
I love that suggestion Ed1 - I remember when I was playing youth footy it was essentially a case of "managers" throwing the biggest kid up top and telling everyone to hoof it to him. As someone who prefers to actually have a kickabout and not a 'hoofabout' it used to drive me mad.

Believe it or not - late last year, the local 5-a-side centre where we played in a league changed it to allow above head height because people kept complaining about the rule (SMH) . So 5-a-side games started turning into teams whacking it high and wide into the corners each time. Killed off any enjoyment of games.

I went on a bit of a rant there so probably lost sight of the point - I am all for anything that encourages children to actually 'play' while also negating any potential long-term injuries.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - Liverpool teams of old used to mostly play 6-a-side football on a small sided pitch. Kicking it long is easy, the hard part is keeping it in tight areas and threading passes through small gaps etc. That is what you need to practice if you are going to be a good player.}

14 Feb 2019 13:19:15
Haizan, you should shop around though, I know you can get it cheaper than £995 😉.

Agree2 Disagree1

14 Feb 2019 14:05:05
Be careful Ed you will upset the Warnock's and Fat Sams of this world with such forward thinking. I haven't done much research with regards to the impact of heading a hard ball, but I agree entirely with the size of the pitch, and even size of the ball. Apparently in Belgium juniors play games with no score, no league table etc. The idea is that you learn how to play, before you learn how to win. People become obsessed with winning instead of teaching kids how to play properly. I also think you should play with your kids your own size not necessarily your own age.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 15:04:51
In the U. S. at youth level up to age 12 (At least in NJ), they aren't allowed to head the ball. It's an indirect free kick for the other team if they do. Maybe the one thing the U. S. is doing that's better than the rest of the world.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2019 03:49:32
I've played football for years and a few years ago a group of my Spanish mates invited me to join their futsol team. After just a few weeks I noticed such an improvement in my touch and close control. It also taught me my Spanish mates were a lot more skilful than myself!

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 00:44:30
A thing I've been kind of wondering since Moreno came to the club - is there any reason he was never tried at left (or right) wing? I mean, he's shown enough glimpses of being a threat higher up the pitch, and although I would never have him anywhere near the pitch at the back, I can't be alone in thinking he might have been able to be more of an asset if he'd been converted to the wing position.

He's got a fine shot on him (of what I've seen), got pace and a bit of dribbling skill and I feel with enough practice at the wing he could turn out to be a better footballer than he's made out to be. I mean, last season he actually started out pretty good, playing some fine forward going football, up until Robertson, though rightfully, took his place. And over the years I feel that he could, at the least, have been a better impact substitution than a lot of other options we've had.

I do realize that you don't just convert to a new position overnight, but am I way off? Does he simply just not have what is required?

Agree5 Disagree10

14 Feb 2019 02:31:57
He is a failed winger, that's why he's at left back.

Agree12 Disagree1

14 Feb 2019 02:50:18
Part of the reason he is so poor defensively is because he is a converted winger. He was poor as a left winger as well.
Moreno has a few decent physical attributes, he’s quite fast and aggressive, but his sub-25 IQ puts paid to any physical qualities he may have. He’ll shoot if it’s the worst available option, his crosses never reach their intended target, and his runs are inconsistent at best.
Bottom line, Moreno never has and never will be anywhere near the standard Liverpool need. Even if he could improve, his lack of intelligence just wouldn’t allow it.

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - and you’re being kind about his footballing IQ lowel

14 Feb 2019 04:28:01
He’s very one footed which makes him predictable, and he certainly can’t dribble. I agree he does has pace and a powerful shot, but he’s a long long way off having the skills to be a successful winger.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - I have never understood why people keep suggesting this, he has not got any skill, can't cross or shot or pass or tackle. The lad is a hopeless case sadly. He was brought in knowing he had a lot of flaws to his game, but it was hoped that they could be coached out of his game. Sadly he lacks any understanding or the ability to figure things out for himself and to improve.}

14 Feb 2019 07:37:29
Notwithstanding his skill, we don't play tradition wingers. So he'd be hopeless unless we were going to replace Klopp with Hodgson.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 08:57:17
A question for ED01 or ED02 perhaps; Was Moreno bought deliberatly or was he part of a double buy as I am sure I can remember him being bought as part of a double buy from Seviele.
Or have I got that completely wrong?

Also whos idea was it to buy him?
Was it the quango committe we used to have oe was it Rodgers specifically?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what you mean by "double buy" but there was no exchange or package deal. He was wanted by BR and the club agreed to the purchase.}

14 Feb 2019 10:38:34
I thougjt we purchased him with another player at the same time from the same club.

But thank you for the clarification.

Agree0 Disagree2

{Ed002's Note - Not that I recall.}

14 Feb 2019 14:06:48
Oh, never realized he was actually a converted winger. Out of curiosity, was he worse in the wing position, than he was at left back? It's hard to imagine so, but I don't recall ever seeing him playing up there and I haven't watched him before he came to Liverpool. For a guy that seems to have zero understanding of defending, I thought he'd at the very least do a better job further up the pitch.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 15:59:15
I've thought the same thing red chim mate. He does have the ability to place counter attacking football and he's a tough little effer.

But if it's true that he lacks the intelligence to play for a top club in an offensive position then that's that. But I wonder if he could have done more than lallana when he came on for salah in the ucl final.

You need back up players and it's hard to find brilliant players who will sit on the bench while Andy Andy Andy Andy Robertson shines. I think he is okay as back up but I'd rather have milner at lb than alby. I think we'll sign chillwell in the summer, maybe swap moreno as part of the deal. Leicester have done swap deals in the recent past I think. Ben would push Andy to become the best lb in the world. For me he is the best in the league.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - robertson is good robbie but come on mate...become best in the world????, hes in the top 10 in the premiership but anything more is you being a bit deluded mate...give your head a wobble will ya..

14 Feb 2019 16:52:03
I thought Robbo is top 10 in the world in his position already? Can't personally name 10 better at LB.

Agree3 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 18:20:56
I think that signing Chilwell would be a foolish move. He'd expect to get some games as he wouldn't want to purely be backup. Robbo is a machine and hardly gets tired, so a like for like quality rotation player isn't necessary.

We should promote someone or buy either a young left back (Kelly? / Sessegnon? ) or someone towards the end of their career that wouldn't mind being backup, but with plenty of experience (Filipe Luis? ) .

Agree1 Disagree1

14 Feb 2019 18:29:52
When has Moreno ever looked good higher up the pitch? I can think of once, on his debut against Spurs when he ran the full length and smashed it in the corner.
Since then I don’t think he’s hit a single shot on target or picked out a single player in the box.
He plays like a child, he’s all energy with no clue where he’s supposed to be or what he’s supposed to be doing.
‘All the gear with no idea’ springs to mind.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 19:38:42
My understanding of Moreno is that he is apparently a very good trainer off the field, works hard and appears to take the coach's advice. The problem is that it all dribbles out of his brain once he gets onto the field.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Feb 2019 11:53:36
Come on ed025. I never know when your on a wind up. He is the best lb in our league. Who is better? Mendy? No, can't think of anyone else who comes close. The spurs lad ain't bad and the Fulham kid with all that promise.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - hes very good robbie but so are a few others mate, and dont even get me started on other leagues my friend..
