Correct Score Competition Entry

Ed yes i've got one game fever.



But mbappe of monaco looks a bladdy talent. Are we interested? Is he a possibility in the summer?

{Ed001's Note - if only we could afford him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Feb 2017 05:50:20

I understand that Mbappe is one of the hottest talents in Europe with literally every big team taking an interest - so it makes sense that we could not compete - but financially how much (ballpark figure) do you think we would have to spend over the summer (exclusing sales)? Or is this too difficult to quantify in any meaningful way?

{Ed001's Note - it doesn't work like that.}

22 Feb 2017 11:15:55
Ed i know we don't talk finances.

But let's give it just a small go.

Say we commited rather than spent 60 mil this summer on 4 players. With say 30 mil straight away and the rest over a few years, in other words still paying it.

What is stopping us paying 60 mil for mbappe with 30 mil straight away and 30 mil in addons and making him our only addition

Becauze last year if was 36 mil on mane, 25 mil on wij, 4 klavan, 4 karius

So there's 60 mil.

1/ i am not saying do that
2/ i don't think he's worth that
3/ i am but just a simple fan.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool was one of the clubs that took a look at the Mbappe and has no interest in the player.}

21 Feb 2017 23:23:07
Do we have any interest in Rachid Ghezzal of Lyon? He wouldn't cost a fortune and is excellent.

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Feb 2017 02:06:50
He is indeed a good player.

22 Feb 2017 01:40:58
From Lyon? he would definitely cost a fortune. I think it was ed02 who said Lyon are a nightmare to deal with especially when it comes to an English club.

21 Feb 2017 23:14:52
That was some performance from City. Keeping the legacy of EPL in the competition.

Falcao was one of my fav player and the second goal shows you why.

Agree1 Disagree3

22 Feb 2017 14:05:20
pep needs to stop fannying about at the back to stand any chance of winning the cl, brilliant game to watch but only because both defences were dreadful, Monaco's attacks on the break were great to watch, brilliant goals from falcoa, shame about his penalty.

20 Feb 2017 13:43:05
Hi all. I want to say from the beginning that I don't want to go into the whole CDM debate again so try and avoid it in the discussion please. Do we think our CB of Matip and Lovren are as bad as some make out. I for one think they work ok and given time for the pair to work together could be great.

The fact that a lot of our style of play including our defence relies on us attacking, when we attack in numbers like we do especially with the high press means that there are going to be mistakes, losing possession, no cover, big holes etc. There are always going to be chances against us.

Yes there are defensive errors but when you have no cover there is more pressure. Look at Real, Barcelona, Spain and Brazil, even Bayern, most fans would scream for their CB's but get at their teams and hit them on the counter with pace and they're all vulnerable.

My biggest gripe is GK coach. All GK's we have become average looking despite their prior form for their previous clubs, as I said earlier in another post, even Pepe deteriorated under Achterberg. There in lies the big problem for me. GK coach just isn't good enough.

Karius will become good, I have little doubt and no Migs isn't good enough but the problems could be mostly solved with improvements in GK coach. I don't want this to become a slag Lovren or Migs discussion so please be objective.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Feb 2017 14:50:31
You are right when you say together Matip and lovren can prove to be a good cb partnership. The problem is when Matip gets injured like he did this season, Lovren falls apart. that's why a new cb partner is needed for matip, because if he gets injured we can still have some leadership at the back.

20 Feb 2017 16:35:49
Agree Poolie.

20 Feb 2017 20:04:12
Hopefully Gomez will come good/ get a chance.

20 Feb 2017 22:03:01
Whilst our tactics would expose any CB Lovren is not top class. Fixing GK (either karius proves himself or we buy) should be our first priority getting a new partner for Matip is our second.

21 Feb 2017 10:57:34
I honestly don't think the partnership of Matip and Lovren is good enough! So far I rate Matip he looks like he is capable of becoming a great player for us, has picked up quite a few injuries this season which is worrying but hopefully its just due to his body coming to terms with the increase in training methods/ intensity and will lessen by next season, but performance wise I think he's done well and will get better as he adapts and learns more about the Prem/ teammates. Lovren though has terrible concentration levels and is just too error prone, one minute he looks commanding and assured the next he's panicked for no reason hoofed the ball 50 yards in air or tried to play a dodgy pass back to the GK which makes everyone panic, it is such a shame he has these moments but unfortunately they show no signs of disappearing from his game, and while they keep popping up our defence will continue to be weak because they are just waiting for it (same with Mignolet) .

The Achterberg thing is a bit of a conundrum, he's been with us for a long time now, managers have come and gone and yet every one of them has kept him on and praised him, is he to blame for our keepers continued GK department problems or are the players we are signing just not responding to coaching tactics/ methods?

21 Feb 2017 14:23:39
We have hardly given him a decent keeper to work with. Mignolet has been pretty much the same since the first day. You cannot improve a rock, Could you?

21 Feb 2017 21:43:49
Some rocks polish up to be marble or even diamond lol.

22 Feb 2017 12:36:57
I think the main problem is the GK's we sign.
We don't prioritise arial ability enough.
We haven't had a keeper who is commanding in the air since Reina. We've always signed flappers who are so, so easy to put under pressure. It requires no tactical acumen to exploit the weakness of a flapper.
However, Achterberg does not seem able to improve these flappers.

19 Feb 2017 19:54:17

Good evening eds, just wondering have we been linked with Jordan Pickford? A young goalkeeper who is earning a lot of admirers.



Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2017 20:13:47

Like Danny Ward or Karius?

20 Feb 2017 00:13:37

We need to give Karius another chance before looking at the likes of Pickford. Thought he did nothing wrong in the cup games in January and I'm actually a little surprised he's not back in the team for league games.

20 Feb 2017 01:14:51

What did you think about the first goal for Wolves Something?

A player headed in a looping deep cross from about a yard or two away from Karius, Karius made no attempt to challenge for the ball.

20 Feb 2017 01:45:25

Ron, maybe cos the ball was at the back post and there were two Wolves players free and most importantly offside is why he couldn't come for the ball before hand as there was no way he would ever get to it.



Get over it, mate. Karius was brought in to be no. 1 and Klopp will NOT be giving up on him just cause of a couple of mistakes or cos some fans took sides with a manc in G Neville, over their own player when he was struggling.



Oh n by the way, all the top GK's are taken and won't be coming here so I guess we will have to all get behind Karius and support him until he proves he can't hack it, something we can't know after 10 measly games.

20 Feb 2017 19:41:15
Yeah Noah and you know Klopp mind I take it? Where's your ark.

20 Feb 2017 22:55:32
Karius was flapping at crosses in pre season and even broke his hand while missing the ball and hitting Lovrens head.

It seems to be a weak spot in his game that other teams would exploit.

Whether coaching can improve such a fundamental flaw in a goalkeepers performance is open to question.

The lads confidence also looked shot to pieces when Klopp withdrew him.

He deserves more time but the jury is out on him.

I like the little I've seen of Pickford but he too is young but he had great 1st team prem. experience for one so young.

Sunderland would want huge money for him as well.

19 Feb 2017 19:18:04

Liverpool deal for joe Harte deal all done I've been told . personally I'm not happy but my mate is usually smack on. hope he's wrong on this🙈.

{Ed002's Note - There is no "deal done" for Joe hart.}

Agree0 Disagree2

19 Feb 2017 20:07:01

Just passing on what I was told. I'm hoping you are right but honestly he's usually spot on. we need better than migs and Hart. in my opinion fingers crossed one of our players is winding him up 👍.

19 Feb 2017 20:31:46

Thanks for passing it on mate, I appreciate it 👍.

19 Feb 2017 21:22:31

In all honesty I wouldn't be surprised. I would be surprised if it was done before Migs was sold but I can see us going for Hart.

{Ed002's Note - There is no "deal done" for Joe Hart.}

19 Feb 2017 21:42:03

Ed2, I know we're straying away from Liverpool territory here but have you wind of where Hart will be next season? It sounds like you know more than you've revealed on the matter.

{Ed002's Note - There is no agreement for him to go anywhere next season - it is all BS this guy is spinning you.}

19 Feb 2017 22:12:35

We have not shown any interest in him either have we ed?

19 Feb 2017 22:13:09

well said ed0002! blimey talk about 2+2 = 5, a poster has given us a rumour not fact.

20 Feb 2017 14:34:52
I know it's a rumour wich I hope is wrong. just saying he's usually right . he told me before we were signing Henderson and I laughed cause we hadn't heard anything about Henderson at the time and next thing he was there? Just don't be surprised if Harte is in goal for us at start of the season 🙈 Eds have said it's not a done deal but he didn't say it wasn't going to happen wich I think speaks volumes?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool and Manchester City has no agreement for a "done deal" or a transfer, a loan or a pre-contract. Zip, nada, nothing. Klipperty hasn't even tapped up the player. You may want to glance through reviews about his last match.}

20 Feb 2017 22:27:53
I don't need to read reviews about his last match I know he is awful. would be gutted if we signed him like I said.

19 Feb 2017 22:00:16
Liverpool owner John W Henry spotted in a private box at the Barcelona game tonight, make of it what you will 😁.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 Feb 2017 22:51:20
that must mean both klopp and countinho are leaving us? do I get a job writing for metro?

20 Feb 2017 00:13:56
£200m bid for Neymar and Suarez.

20 Feb 2017 00:39:42
It'll be in the papers Tuesday, stop lol.

18 Feb 2017 21:07:13

Hey Eds, any validity to the rumours involving Julian Brandt?

{Ed002's Note - Winger Julian Brandt turned down a contract extension from Wolfsburg at 17 and Bayer Leverkusen, Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund all showed interest with Chelsea offering a player in part exchange in the summer of 2013. Liverpool certainly took a look at that time as well - as he was a very high-profile youngster. He moved to Bayer Leverkusen in January 2014 with Brendan Rodgers still keen on the player and he continued to attract attention from Arsenal - who made an approach as early as the summer of 2014. This past summer he was not for sale. He is still young and no doubt this summer will see further interest with Liverpool, Milan, Spurs and Arsenal considering the player. Juventus have spoken with his father about any potential interest the player might have in a move to Turin. He would be an ideal fit for Liverpool as a left winger.}

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Feb 2017 21:52:12

Cheers Ed, a top class response as always.

18 Feb 2017 22:45:54

I really hope we get him as you say, he is perfect for Klopp's system cos Bayer play the exact system under Roger Schmidt.

18 Feb 2017 22:48:35

That last line from Ed02 would be enough for me to buy him. Never doubted his talent rather on his age.

19 Feb 2017 09:03:47

I'd prefer to give Ojo or Wilson a go on the left wing.

Brandt will be an expensive gamble.

We have a problem conceding goals, not scoring them.

19 Feb 2017 10:59:26

Ron, if Klopp thought either were good enough to play the role at the moment then we would have seen them et game time over the Christmas period.



They didn't. Instead he changed our style by putting Lallana out wide.



He cannot think they are ready yet. I tend to agree.

19 Feb 2017 11:35:54

Puzzled- are you saying Brandt won't need time to settle in?

It's a gamble.

19 Feb 2017 12:08:16

Yes he's a gamble Ron, but at the same time Brandt has shown he can play well consistently in a high pressing team in a similar league to the Premier League. However much I'd like Ojo to be given a chance, we have shown that without Mane, we sorely lack pace which Brandt could provide. There's also the chance that Sturridge might leave in the summer, so I'm confident there will be enough opportunities for everyone to play.

19 Feb 2017 16:28:58

Every signing is a gamble, Ron. All you can do is minimize the risk and sign players with a high ceiling. Brandt certainly fits the bill of being a player in a position of need of high quality and potential.

19 Feb 2017 18:11:36

Do we need to take the gamble when we score freely and we have young guns coming through?

19 Feb 2017 18:30:58

Ron, the simple fact is that Brandt is WAY ahead of Ojo and Wilson in his development as I watched him play in the U21 WC in 2015, the Olympics of last year and in the CL this season as well as already has 4 caps for the German senior side.



Comparing him with Ojo and Wilson is pointless and illogical. The kid has been special since he was 17 and that has not changed. Klopp wants him at all costs per reports and he is the real deal and having watched him some, I can see why. If Ojo and Wilson were that great in comparison, why did we not see the in Jan?

20 Feb 2017 00:47:11
I'm with you ron, he is a gamble and a big one at that. Just because Brandt has done well over there doesn't mean he will over here, how many times has this been proved? not saying it'll happen with him but there's a high possibility it will. I don't even think we'll get him anyway, it's the same old media nonsense at the moment. I too would rather see Ojo been given his chance, yes he's not at that level yet but never will be unless he's given his well deserved chance.

This is the problem with too many Liverpool fans, expecting massive money signings and not giving our youngsters a chance to establish themselves. What chance do they have? we sign Brandt we say goodbye to Ojo and I just can't see that happening.

Be all and end all, the biggest weakness to our team is defense, we need to work on that before adding players like Brandt when we clearly have no issues with scoring ggoals, we have problems with conceding them left right and center, this issue needs to be addressed first.

18 Feb 2017 21:39:11

Do we hold any .........

{Ed002's Note - You cannot expect answers to questions about random players.}

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Feb 2017 21:48:39

Sorry ed just wondering wehter you had heard anything on the grapevine about him. Always my first purchase on fifa and wanting to buy someother players on fifa 18 haha



Cheers bud!

18 Feb 2017 17:23:50

Are we actually talking to Dortmund about Gotze?

{Ed002's Note - Goetze is having a torrid time back in Dortmund and performances have been poor. Dortmund are keen to sell him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Feb 2017 18:19:01

God I hope not true, fine footballer but comes with a terrible attitude.

18 Feb 2017 21:10:15

Would be a shout for a loan to buy maybe that's who klopp was hinting at in his interview.

18 Feb 2017 22:56:38

He rejected us last Summer, should have trusted in the man who was responsible for his breakthrough. No thanks.

18 Feb 2017 22:47:26

That ship has sailed and he's no good anymore. If there's any BVB player I would like, it would definitely be Ousmane Dembele.

19 Feb 2017 08:10:05

Why would we buy a Bayern and now a BvB reject. We need to get rid of average player's not buy them.
