Correct Score Competition Entry

Eds did Lfc end up signing Emeka Obi from Bury and if so has he featured for the youth teams yet?

{Ed001's Note - not sure if he has featured, but he did sign.}

Aged 15 height 6'7"?



Put him back in the greenhouse! He's a giant.

15 Feb 2017 15:51:51

He is ridiculously massive. Just curious, and this is a querstion for ed's, posters, etc etc when somebody is so far ahead physically (compared to other 15 year olds) do they have to train with full-grown men in order to keep improving? Or is it still possible to develop the required skills playing within their own age group?

{Ed002's Note - There is no fast track for tall kids and the short ones are not held back.}

16 Feb 2017 08:44:52
Eds how old do the kids need to be before they can train with the first team? is there an age restriction or?

{Ed002's Note - There is no age restriction but whilst they are children there are limitations on the amount of training they can do, and they need education etc..}

Thanks ed2.

Gini celebration mane's goal take a bow son 🍾.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Feb 2017 13:02:35

If you think that was crazy you should see ed001 celebrate. Can't tell you how many times Harry has had to pick him up and take him to the hospital for a dislocated hip.

15 Feb 2017 14:34:08

Lol TjRed And the fact here in Korea he is quite famous in hospitals you know ha ha😄.

15 Feb 2017 12:00:24
Not exactly Liverpool news, but we must admit Klopp and us lost to a truly great football brain in Unai Emery in last season Europa final.

Agree2 Disagree4

15 Feb 2017 12:55:09
Wouldn't call Emery a great fottballing brain, Good but not great, Barcelona have had that result coming all season the way they've been playing and the europa league win covers up Emery failings in the league and not even managing to win away from home.

15 Feb 2017 13:55:53
Don't forget we smashed Real Madrid 4-0 under Rafa 😎.

15 Feb 2017 18:40:59
Rafa and unai have great European pedigree. They do really well in Europe. I wouldn't call him a tactical genius but he certainly knows how to prepare against certain opposition on big occasions. Klopp is the better manager though, he just has to show it more.

15 Feb 2017 22:37:04
klopp is not a better manage than Emery. Klopp is a better coach.

16 Feb 2017 13:39:14
How do you know
Harry?

14 Feb 2017 07:10:20

Hey eds.

This is a long shot an I probably already know the answer but here goes anyway.

Do you think we would be interested in a cheeky bid for either martial or rashford in the summer? Ignoring who they play for I do think they have a lot of quality especially rashford! And if he wasn't injured as much as he is welbeck would also be a good addition. 1st time poster so take it easy on me. Thanks great site!

{Ed001's Note - no, even if we were to show interest, there is no way they would be allowed to join us.}

Agree0 Disagree1

14 Feb 2017 11:09:53

Ah, the return of the cheeky bid. Eagerly anticipating the appearance of a smokescreen this summer.

14 Feb 2017 11:31:15

Danny Welbeck? Good addition? Really?!

14 Feb 2017 12:00:37

I've always liked welbeck but unfortunately he's a lot like DS, and very injury prone but I'm certain if he was too stay fit for a few seasons he would be a quality addition to a lot of the big clubs. It's only my opinion I just rate the above 3 players I mentioned and think under klopp they could be good additions to our current squad.

14 Feb 2017 12:11:30

Welbeck is a sprinter at best. Wenger's only Panic buy imo.

14 Feb 2017 13:01:23

Martial is top top player but Mancs will not sell to us and not sure if he would like to come here.

14 Feb 2017 14:30:55

Lol no thank you. Never going to happen anyway.

14 Feb 2017 15:28:38

Yes let's buy Utds seconds, that's going to win the league.

14 Feb 2017 17:38:20

Trying to work out why folk think Martial is a top player. Utd committed to pay out £50m by all accounts and I've seen nothing that makes that look like good value.

14 Feb 2017 20:20:36

Wengers only panic buy? Francis Jeffery anyone?

15 Feb 2017 14:25:39
Exactly Jonhy.

14 Feb 2017 14:21:15
Just having a look at tickets for upcoming games and the prices for adult seats. I noticed that there's some seats for £9 listed in the Main stand. My God are you that far back you're on Scottie Road?! Anyone know where these seats are?

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Feb 2017 14:28:01
In Pluto mate.

15 Feb 2017 00:11:37
They will probably have restricted view.

15 Feb 2017 06:29:08
If you feel like a good day out at the match all for a good cause, check the game on 25th March, LFC Legends v R. Madrid legends. Tickets available £20 adults £5 kids.

11 Feb 2017 21:17:55

Just want to say Wjinaldum gets a lot of stick for me it was a close call between him and Mane for MOTM, Mane just shaded it. Wjinaldum gave Dembele a footballing lesson.

Agree1 Disagree0

11 Feb 2017 22:13:52

Wini's best game for Liverpoool.

12 Feb 2017 09:43:56

Absolutely. By far his most influential performance for LFC. I think Firmino had a standout game too (aside from Mane and Hendo), and deserves a lot of credit for his endless tireless work.

12 Feb 2017 13:35:49

Gini was superb breaking down play, winning back possession, kept the ball brilliantly in tight spots. The pass for the goal was perfect. That's what he brings that's why he's there. mom for me. More of the same please.

13 Feb 2017 09:13:14

He's been doing that most of the season. A lot of unseen work. Now he's settled into that role he can focus a bit more on the attacking side of his game. Quality player and I didn't realise how strong he was, with such high energy levels.



It's good to have that midfield 3 back and the attacking 3 too.

14 Feb 2017 13:28:58
I agree Alfie he's been brilliant since day one and it's about time he got some credit. Klopp only knows why he was dropped for Can for so long.

13 Feb 2017 13:57:04

So Rodgers is trying to make himself relevant again saying he spotted Van Dijk before anyone else in England, but got vetoed by the transfer committee.



I was a little bit unsure on Van Dijk but after hearing that Rodgers thinks he is 'outstanding' I can finally get off the fence.



VVD, you just go stand in the corner with Cissokho, Can, Sakho, Ilori, Moreno, Lovren, Markovic, Skrtel, Johnson, Clyne and anyone else Rodgers considers to be a top top defender! We will come back for you shortly *runs frantically in the opposite direction*.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2017 14:33:49

Can still has time mate. But yeah lol I agree with your post overal.

13 Feb 2017 15:20:49

Think he meant can as a defender.

13 Feb 2017 16:28:29

Can has time as a midfielder sure, but I'd rather see Sturridge in defense!

13 Feb 2017 16:33:38

Yeah I meant Can as a centre back and Markovic as a wing back. It was only a light hearted joke anyway, nothing sinister!

13 Feb 2017 17:29:54

Says the guy who wanted who signed Borini, Luis Alberto, Allen, manquillo, Balotelli, and thought Skrtl was an "outstanding". The guy sounds like jilted girlfriend who is still clinging to her ex even tho her ex has moved on to better things.



MK, notice that BR never runs his mouth about LFC under Klopp except when Klopp and us are struggling? The guy is still prolly mad and bitter than the Everton fans that Klopp has most of the fan base on side, made the same players he was trashing in the media while he was here, look very good and jealous that Klopp is challenging for the top 4 in his first full season, something BR couldn't do. The guy should focus on his job at the one-team shambles called the SPL cos hey, even an "outstanding" manager like him couldn't screw that up, right?

13 Feb 2017 17:29:48

Lol the man who paid double for Lovren from Southampton. It's high time the club should insert a clause in their contracts not to talk trash once they leave out from the club.

13 Feb 2017 18:24:55

He wouldn't have said it if it wasn't true. No manager would say such a thing, knowing that if it was a lie he would be slated for it in the national press. I personally believe him, just like Deli Ali, someone from higher up over ruled him. We will never know how much influence the transfer committee had on such things.

13 Feb 2017 18:30:33

All this BR slating needs to stop in all honesty. The man is no longer at the club for one, he always spoke well of the fans and club even after getting sacked too. He also brought some great memories to us fans during his time. The absolute anihiliation of Arsenal in 20 minutes being one and coming closer than we have in years to winning the title. He made mistakes, said some laughable things and even made some very strange choices, but let's move on already guys. Please?

13 Feb 2017 21:25:43

I thought we were finished with this crap : (.

14 Feb 2017 16:59:39
Me too putney, he is allowed an opinion qualified or not just like us on here. And this is coming from a fan who despises him for many reasons. Let the man be.

13 Feb 2017 11:21:03

Liverpool are seriously interested in Inaki Williams.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2017 12:37:38

Sais who mate? can't see anything on here from the eds and not on the Shakopod?

13 Feb 2017 13:36:46

At 22 years old, and as a player who relies pretty much 100% on pace, the guy may only have 5 years left before he begins to decline (see Owen, Torres, Sturridge, Gerrard, Walcott etc) unless he is an exception (Giggs, Ronaldo, Robben, Messi, Aubameyang etc) .



So it is pretty alarming that he has 4 goals in about 30 games!



The sad reality is that players who rely on pace usually peak between 20-27 when they are physically unstoppable.



I would not gamble the amount of money he would cost based on his previous goal records in a very top heavy league. If we did not have Mane, I think he would be a great option as a right winger. He just doesn't score enough to be the main striker though, in my opinion. He has less goals than Sturridge or Origi so why blow €50m on a step down?

13 Feb 2017 16:19:22

Of all the players you mentioned MK only Walcott and Owen to a far lesser extent relied pretty much 100% on pace. Some of them, like Gerrard and Messi, actually don't really have that impressive a turn of pace at all. Most of them also had their most fruitful seasons after 26 which seems to be your randomly applied cut off date for decline beginning.



I'm not saying we will or won't be interested in a guy like him, but your counter argument and random names thrown in (btw, when there are as many exceptions to the rule as there are people fitting the rule, it's not a rule) seems odd to say the least!

13 Feb 2017 16:44:53

I did not say that Gerrard or Messi rely on pace. I only said that of Inaki Williams. My point was that after 27 years old most players whose physical capabilities are important in their game do tend to start declining at around that time. Gerrard's last season in his prime was probably 07/ 08. How old? 27/ 28. After that he was noticeably a lesser player and it is simply denial to state otherwise.



The exceptions do tend to be players who either have a bit more to their game, or players who have avoided major/ long term injuries. Gerrard had more to his game, but suffered masses of injuries early in his career and between 28-32.



Williams could tear a cruciate in the opening game of next season and never be the same again. So unless a player of his kind is so good they are worth the risky fee, why take the risk?



You have to judge it on a case by case basis to be fair. There is no golden rule. To me though, Inaki has played in a less than physical league and has a poor record in front of goal. Not worth gambling €50m on in my eyes.

13 Feb 2017 22:47:47
agreed mk.

14 Feb 2017 13:35:29
Gerrard was awesome in '09 and after that with the Gillet/ Hicks debacle and dismantalling of that team he kept us going on his own until '13. To say he declined from '07/ 08 is simply untrue.

13 Feb 2017 20:12:27

Just for fun.



If you could pick one player from each of our top 4 rivals; to improve our team. who would it be?



For me:



Chelsea: kante

Spurs: toby alderweireld

Arsenal: Sanchez

City: aguero

United: de gea



Unrealistic. But hey. how good would we be then lol



Chelsea could also be Costa. But I think kante would make more of an impact.

{Ed025's Note - how come you picked 5 then?.. :)

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2017 20:18:22

All those teams including us. are in contention for the top 4. I excluded Everton. Don't get upset Ed 😉.

{Ed025's Note - im not MOTM, but lukaku would score more than any of your wimpy tippy tappy forwards mate...and you will have to get used to us being contenders, we are on the way up my friend.. :)

13 Feb 2017 20:20:24

25 😂.

{Ed025's Note - i think the school he went to was an approved one laddie.. :)

13 Feb 2017 20:28:24

It's a team sport Ed. I'll take our tippy tappy wimpy ones all day long.



Enjoy him while u can. Another jelavic is just around the corner.



I hope uz beat United to 6th though. That would be fantastic haha.

{Ed025's Note - forget united MOTM...we are coming for you mate.. :)

13 Feb 2017 20:57:32

We can all dream #25 mate lol.

13 Feb 2017 20:57:33

Hahaha you crack me up 25, good luck with that ;) hope your well fella.

14 Feb 2017 01:41:59
I wonder what it's like, being delusional :-)

13 Feb 2017 20:56:59
All the news outlets trying to figure out where coutinho picked up this idea to kneel behind the wall like that. They seem to forget the free kick he scored against West ham and Erikson was bout same distance and is a very smart free kick taker.

Agree2 Disagree0
