Are we still looking at bringing in a new right back and replacing Clyne?
Very happy if our summer is salah, solanke, VVD, Keita and Robinson but it would still leave a massive weakness in my eyes on the right side of our defence.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool looking for a RB.}

1.) 15 Jul 2017 17:02:06
I think you will be seeing more of Alexander-Arnold this season. Of course Clyne is still first-choice right-back for England as well still?

2.) 15 Jul 2017 18:13:37
Walker is first choice.

3.) 15 Jul 2017 18:14:01
I'm hoping Flannaghan can force his way back too.

4.) 15 Jul 2017 18:32:30
Lets be fair to clyne. he was the best player in a weak backline. didn't do much damage going forward, but can you blame him? Mignolet is the worst keeper we have had since kirkland. our centre backs were terrible. the trust in defence must be at an all time low in the first team. with a better all round backline would he improve going forward because there is trust there?

5.) 15 Jul 2017 18:54:54
Eds just a quick question? is it Liverpool are only looking at Robertson, VVD and Keita (+ the 2 we've signed) to have a competitive squad for next season or do u think we might have a look at anyone else also in any other positions.

{Ed002's Note - Right now the focus appears to be Keita and Robertson. Macca seems to think Liverpool will make a formal approach for van Dijk as well.}

6.) 15 Jul 2017 19:29:01
Thanks again for the reply 👍.

7.) 15 Jul 2017 19:50:44
I agree Jones, I'd love to give Illori a chance too.

8.) 15 Jul 2017 20:03:22
Brilliant, JaYox 😂.

9.) 15 Jul 2017 20:21:23
Macca thinks we'll make a formal approach for vvd eds . but what do you think or know? Has our interest ended after our apologies?

{Ed002's Note - Done to death.}

10.) 15 Jul 2017 20:57:21
Surely there are other options. I don't the fee being spoken about for keita. but surely we could get better value for money looking elsewhere for CB. I don't see VVD as worth that kinda money.

11.) 15 Jul 2017 22:59:02
hmasson2 - since when did Macca say we'll make a formal approach for him, he didn't say that.

12.) 15 Jul 2017 23:34:36
@Teabag in his last post 🤔.

13.) 16 Jul 2017 00:14:08
Puzzled, re read it? - He didn't say we made a formal approach. He said he believes that they'll sign for us, said nothing about a formal approach made for VVD.

14.) 16 Jul 2017 07:39:12
If he believes he'll sign surely there will be a formal approach as apposed to a kidnapping?

15.) 16 Jul 2017 07:42:32
Teabag, if Macca expects us to sign him then it would mean we have to put in a formal approach otherwise how else would we sign him?!

16.) 16 Jul 2017 08:17:45
The only way I can see it happening is if VVD hands in a transfer request.

17.) 16 Jul 2017 03:38:13
Thanks ed002.
And yeah looks like we will be seeing more of TAA, I hope he steps up and makes the place his own.

18.) 16 Jul 2017 13:01:20
Hi i think liverpool need 2 leftbacks .2 right backs . maybe robertson lb but still need another . rb clyne and aa . i think flano will struggle no way is he a lb, he keeps cutting in and not getting down the line .

Just want to say it was great watching young Trent last night, he had a good game by anyone's standards but I just wanted to say how impressed I was because in the last few games he's looked a bit nervous, tired, and error prone, he looked back to his best last night, shows great mentality that to drag himself up rather than let it go to his head, I know Moscow didn't test him too much but that's not really the point, he was good when called upon.
On another note why is coutinho taking corners? Should be Trent every time, would like to see him in the mix for taking free kicks as well.


1.) 27 Sep 2017 13:11:56
Someone tell him that it is a throw in and not .

Other than that he did well.


2.) 27 Sep 2017 13:59:48
He is not a natural defender. He is being primed for midfield, maybe a winger. Going forward he is very exciting to watch, reminded me a little of young Rashford with his step overs and direct style. You can see that he is a highly confident young lad and getting regular games for a top six team, at his age is pretty amazing. Defencively he is ok but is still quite slight, he needs to get a bit bigger or he will be bullied in midfield at Stoke or west Bromwich. A little surprised that solanke and gomez made it on the 25 man nomination for the Golden Boy award and Trent isn't? Maybe I'm a year or two.



23 Sep 2017 23:30:04
Hey ed001 I know your a busy man and spend so much time writing out the match reviews, I would like to help you out with that.
All you need to do is copy and paste this paragraph for the remaining games of this season:

"Liverpool today where brilliant going forward, however we where terrible yet again at the back, Migs! . "

Your welcome ed001, have a great night 😁.


{Ed001's Note - harsh but true.}

1.) 24 Sep 2017 06:09:27
How long is it going to take before Migs gets phased out? We have been hearing this for the past 18 months now. Why not just stick with Karius or Ward and let them make mistakes whilst learning from those mistakes? We all know Migs won't get any better so this 'phasing out' process is just a waste of time imo. Sell Migs, give the other two a chance and tell the crowd to shut their trap and not get on Karius or Ward's backs if they make a mistake.

2.) 24 Sep 2017 06:57:28
I was very impressed by Ward in the week. Came for balls that Migs wouldn't have. He needs a run in the team to gain confidence and experience at that level. I'm not a mignolet hater but I feel that Ward showed in the cup he is worthy of a go. (Although at times I wasn't sure if it was really him or Danny from McFly)

3.) 24 Sep 2017 07:41:27
Agreed Indian. Why not give karius a run in the team maybe 5 games he can't be worse than migs.

The keepers are very exposed though with no DM and a back 4 that are badly organised we could neuer in goal and still conceed goal after goal.

Don't understand why we don't pull in a defensive coach to do what klopp clearly can't get sorted. We don't have bad defenders just no organisation.

{Ed025's Note - you have bad defenders beddoe...honest..

4.) 24 Sep 2017 07:53:42
Keep Karius in the champs league and give Ward a run of league games, that way we give them both a fair shot for No1, then the best keeper at the end of the group stage is our no1 can't say fairer then that IMO.

5.) 24 Sep 2017 08:55:58
I disagree with that Ed. These defenders have shown in other teams that they are decent players. They have a lack of confidence right now and that causes hesitation which leads to mistakes. We need to play the same back 4 every week so they can gain confidence and understanding.

{Ed025's Note - i agree that less tinkering on klopps part would certainly help ings but its hard to change attitudes, matip is lazy and lovren reckless, the full backs are decent going forward but lack defensive quality which should be the main priority for all of the back line, that makes a poor defence in my book mate..

6.) 24 Sep 2017 19:13:41
To be fair Ed25 fixing the full back issues is even tougher cos 90% of top full backs these days are dire defenders who are there to basically be wing backs, and a lot of them aren't great at that part either. Defending just doesn't seem to be high on the list of things to develop in full backs these days.

{Ed025's Note - i totally agree freshst, it seems like the art of defending is a dying one mate..sadly..



14 Sep 2017 11:49:26
So, Karius did ok didn't he?
He didn't dither about on the ball like he's been guilty of recently (a defender learning from his mistakes? At Liverpool? )
His distribution seemed really good, I know the crowd got on his back once or twice for not getting the ball upfield within a second of receiving it but I think the right ball upfield is just as important as a quick one.
Seemed a lot better on corners than migs.
Seems the plan is to use him in the champs league but if he plays like this in the next few games I would drop migs in the league.


1.) 14 Sep 2017 13:22:00
Drop migs, off at Goodison.

2.) 14 Sep 2017 14:37:54
Karius now needs a run of games. Way more comfortable dealing with crosses and gets off his line when needed instead of dithering. Kicking also looks good right now.
Klopp should have figured out by now that Migs is poor and not fit to be LFC's GK. Karius should be first choice for the next few months to see what he can do before a final decision is made which GK to ditch in Jan. Imo it should be Migs. Karius 1st choice (if he does well) and Ward as back up.



02 Sep 2017 03:33:32
Didn't expect couts to stay.
Once he's back in the team our offensive strength is frightening, we might not have to worry about the defence if we are scoring 8 a game lol.


1.) 02 Sep 2017 08:25:50
I did. I always knew he would stay even tho, Klopp last minute, was fed up with his conduct and wanted him gone and since we did not get replacement, he is right to keep him. Cou was badly advised. He would get his move anyway BUT he allowed outside forces to infulence him to go to war with the club and FSG (these guys don't mess around, Ask Suarez) and he should have tried to make things better by actually playing.

Look at Mahrez. He's wanted out of LC all summer BUT he is still playing and giving his all. Had Cou done that, no one would begrudge him. I don't have a prob with trying to leave for Barca. it is his tactics that are deplorable. Remember, it's not what you do or say. it is how you do or say it and this is where Cou has failed miserably.



01 Sep 2017 13:22:11
I can see a lot of posters looking ahead to next year (when Keita and VVD (apparently) come) let's get this season out the way first, I think we have every chance of a title challenge this season.
last season we really struggled at left and right back, teams seemed to tear us apart down the wings and Milner and clyne offered very little offensively to make up for it, this year we have Robertson who can cross a ball with his left foot (can you believe it! ) and TAA who looks comfortable at right back and offers a lot more than clyne does.
Can struggled for much of last season due to carrying an injury, this season he looks much, much better, same can be said for hendo.
Mane was brilliant last year but we badly missed him and a pace winger when he went to Africa and when out injured, this season he looks even better, won't go to Africa and we have added salah so we will likely never be without a pacey goal threat on the wings.
I know there are apparent weaknesses in our squad but we know migs can play better and we know matip and lovren are capable when they get a run of games.
Even if we don't win the league we will undoubtedly be the most exciting team to watch this season.


1.) 01 Sep 2017 14:41:31
As long as we are improving in the PL and CL and can win a trophy and get CL again, not winning the title (I hope we can go for it, for sure) won't be a problem. Progress is key and we are seeing signs of it already 3 games into the season with more points, more goals scored, less goals conceded and more clean sheets than this time last season.

2.) 01 Sep 2017 14:55:05
Yep I'd be happy with just getting to the point where regular UCL was realistic, that would be a massive step up from the past 10 years realistically.

I don’t think it’s allowed, I’m sure I it read on here years ago about someone wanting to put a few million in to buy a player but it wasn’t allowed, sure it was in rafas time.

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.


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

It still baffles me why Liverpool tried to sign him or why Heinze thought this move had any chance whatsoever.
He was a good player and exactly what Liverpool needed but the whole world could see Ferguson would never sell anyone to us, not even a virus lol.
