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 .

Why is it that our least experienced defender looks the most organised?
Moreno leaving massive gaps again on the left, I'm sure he nips out the ground every few mins.
Lovren and matip look really rusty.


1.) 15 Aug 2017 20:42:10
Lucky we haven't been punished. They could of easily put 3/ 4 in that half.



15 Aug 2017 00:46:17
The more I see of costa in the news the more I think of mario ballotelli and us taking a punt on him, I hope to god he doesn't end up here.


1.) 15 Aug 2017 02:23:02
Scores goals, do anything to win, a bit crazy, willing to press and chase things down, id snap their hand off!

2.) 15 Aug 2017 04:11:09
Except Diego Costa has had an accomplished career and Balotelli hasn't.

{Ed001's Note - Balotelli hasn't had an accomplished career? 33 caps and 13 goals for Italy, 1 Champions League, 1 Premier League, 3 Serie A titles and more. Winning trophies is a team thing, both Costa and Balotelli are proof of that. Costa did his very best to sabotage the second half of Chelsea's season, would have no interest in joining us as he made it plain as long ago as last January that all he wants is to go back to Atletico Madrid.}

3.) 15 Aug 2017 08:16:57
Can we bring Costa in just to train with our defenders. It might toughen Lovren, Matip and Klavan up having Costa man handle them every day. And you never know it might result in one of them then putting in a successful tackle on matchday or even competing in the air.

4.) 15 Aug 2017 09:24:11
You'll have to get costa to come from Brazil. Apparently he has refused to return to Chelsea until he is sold back to AM. Moratta is also unhappy, doesn't sound too good for Chelsea at the moment.

5.) 15 Aug 2017 10:24:39
Ed, I don't really care if Costa wants to join us or not, I was just making the point that his career has been far more accomplished than Balotelli's, and in no way can he be compared to another player who perennially underperforms. How can Diego Costa be labelled a risk like Balotelli if he's spearheaded his teams to 3 league titles in the past 4 years?

Yeah, Balotelli may have a lot of titles next to his name, but upon closer inspection, they don't really mean much when you realise that he didn't significantly contribute towards any of those titles, and he won those trophies more so because he was just there, rather than by virtue of him being a key player. Of course winning trophies is a team effort, but for the lesser players in the squad who didn't contribute much, they won because they were lucky to be in a team that happened to win a trophy due to the greater efforts of other teammates.

The guy is 27 now yet instead of hitting his peak, his career has taken a complete nosedive because he didn't know how to make use of his talents.
Yeah, Costa may be a colourful personality, but he also backs it up on the field. I'm not sure what he did to try and sabotage Chelsea's season though? The only controversy seemed to be the China rumours, which seemed like hot air.

{Ed001's Note - but that is my point, how much is Costa contributing and how much is he hindering? You can't tell because it is a team game, but the season before last he was a major, probably the biggest, part of their problems and then again last season he dragged them back when they were running away with the league.

There is little difference between the two, other than Costa looks like he is doing more on the pitch, but as much of his time is spent bickering and arguing, rather than playing football.}

6.) 15 Aug 2017 12:14:50
But of course you can tell. Costa's role within the team is to score goals, and he excels at it. Without all of his goals, Chelsea wouldn't have won the league twice in the last three years. I think this makes it pretty obvious that he greatly contributes to the team.

How does Costa merely 'look like' he does more than Balotelli? If he's scoring far more goals than Balotelli then he most definitely is doing more than Balotelli on the pitch?

I'm really not privy to how Costa hindered Chelsea last year. Can you elaborate?



12 Aug 2017 22:05:57
Some absolute nonsense on here tonight.
First game of the season is always a bit mad, it's like hardly any of you have seen football before.


1.) 12 Aug 2017 23:32:48
Totally understand but it's the same problems as last year, as carragher sed what have we done pre season to sort out the same old rubbish.

2.) 13 Aug 2017 00:37:45
We could have Franco baresi in our back four and it probably wouldn't make a difference.

3.) 13 Aug 2017 03:42:32
That is the issue, OP. Most teams look distinctly average on the first day, but if we could defend to even a semi-decent standard, we'd have won that 0-3. The same issues, year after year, are costing us points. It's lazy coaching from Klopp, he is not doing his job to the level that we know he can.



11 Aug 2017 17:50:43
This coutinho saga has been going on for more than a year, everyone at the club has known he wants to go to Barcelona and that Barcelona wants him for over a year.
If there is no contingency plan in place for phil leaving then you have to ask why not?

I said it earlier in the window that if phil goes but Robertson, salah, keita and VVD come in the team is improved. He's an excellent player but it's a team game.




11 Aug 2017 14:10:31
Don't think I have ever seen the site so mental since the club was being sold, have you seen a big spike in hits ed001?
4 pages of banter in about an hour!


{Ed001's Note - dunno, won't know until Sunday when I get the report.}

1.) 11 Aug 2017 14:28:37
Should set yourself up with analytics and get it all near real time ed001.

Well, he already has taken over as free kick and corner kick taker and is doing well so I don't think if he ever reads my post his nerves will crumble.

TAA was our set piece saviour last week, we won't miss coutinho free kicks or corner kicks with TAA now in the team.
Last season (with couts) we really struggled against teams set up like that, usually losing to a single goal from a single shot at goal. (Last season we lost that game against palace)
But this game we won, with a clean sheet, shows progress to me and that we can live without coutinho.

Milner is like polyfilla in that he can fill any gap in the squad.
