Morning Ed002.

Was thinking, if Salah and his representatives are / have been attempting to engineer a move away, are the owners and those running the club not aware of this? Surely they must be, I'd be astonished if they weren't

If so, are they making provisions to replace him in the Summer? One can say the summer is a long way off but replacing someone like Salah will require some work. As we all know if a player wants to leave and there is an opportunity they will.

Cheers.

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Salah doing anything specific, and his representative can speak to whomever they wish - it is no different from another players agent talking with Liverpool, Arsenal or anything else. I am not aware of any club looking to buy Salah in the summer at this time - it was seemingly a begging activity which would see Salah's future opportunities removed if Real Madrid were to buy the forwards they are looking at. Right now, I would not worry too much.}

Thanks Ed002.


2.) 14 Jan 2019 11:48:17
Seriously Edd 002, an extremely well balanced answer, to a much too frequently and unoriganal question.

{Ed002's Note - It is simply the situation as I understand it right now.}


3.) 14 Jan 2019 18:53:32
Hey Dorgie, how did you manage to get 3 thumbs down for saying Thank You!

Gosh there are some lemons on here.


4.) 14 Jan 2019 19:31:31
If we analyse the way a thank you is delivered, we can start to ascertain why people may deliver a 'thumbs down'.

In years gone by, it was accepted that a nod, a tip of ones bowler hat or, as people expressed themselves more liberally, even a wink would be enough to acknowledge appreciation.

As times passed, expressing gratitude, evolved into a verbal exchange using the words 'thank you', which became shortened to 'thanks' or 'cheers'.

However, in this digital age, things developed further, with people going all out in expressing their appreciation. Phrases like 'Totes amazing', or wholly over the top comments meant that simply 'thanks' was of a bygone age.

So there we have it, I suspect the thumbs down was a result of vegan millenials passing by on their digital device and not recognising this more traditional way of expressing gratitude.

If you have read this far, then you a totes amazing and a far more superior being than me. I hereby tip my hat to you. Thanks.

That should have covered everything and everyone there.

Solanke is a done deal -£19m.

Drogie

1.) 04 Jan 2019 16:25:07
£19 million for someone who has potential. nuts but fair play to Edwards for getting that much for him. particularly if there’s a sell on fee/ first option clause in it.

{Ed0333's Note - Micheal Edwards has played a blinder, well done that man.


2.) 04 Jan 2019 16:34:48
A couple of people on here were saying that the Solanke deal to Palace falling through the other day was a disaster, they’ll be eating humble pie now.


3.) 04 Jan 2019 16:58:51
Getting clyne surely had to be an incentive for them paying over the odds for Solanke, it made little sense for us to move him on otherwise. If that’s the case then it’s still a good deal.

The Echo have reported the club could be open to a more lucrative sponsor with either Nike or Adidas, any truth in this?

Drogie

1.) 29 Dec 2018 20:43:57
I have read they are attempting to get 75m per season with New Balance Adidas Nike and Puma all mentioned as potential providers of the kit. It does seem we need to maximise our selling point to help Klopp delivery success on the pitch.


2.) 29 Dec 2018 22:24:29
There have been reports that Liverpool are looking for a record deal with NB. To be honest I really like the kits we’ve had with NB. I think the Nike kits are hideous.


3.) 30 Dec 2018 09:33:34
Barcelona supposedly has a deal for £140 Million per year with Nike (ManU are at £75 Million per year already, with Adidas) . That's the standard to beat. I like the New Balance kits. Hope we can continue with improved terms.


4.) 31 Dec 2018 07:01:57
I like Adidas but let's not forget that they dumped us when weren't so successful. Not entirely their fault because we underachieved and didn't have CL football for some time. Warrior/ NB came along and gave us a good deal. They came to us when we were down, so it would be nice to have them when we are on the up. The question is, we're not here to do charity and neither are they. It is a business opportunity for both sides. So, whoever stumps up the cash, will get the deal and hopefully the money will be invested wisely to strengthen the team further. So, be it Adidas, Nike or NB. as long as they pay us well, that will be good enough. But I understand the concerns about Adidas/ Nike kits which are usually carbon copies of other teams bar the team colors and logo.


5.) 02 Jan 2019 16:03:45
New balance kits have been good, wouldn't mind staying with them :)

DAPred makes a fair point also.


 

 

03 Dec 2018 19:32:21
Looks like we have a couple of doubts for Weds against Burnley- Robbo, dead leg and Mané- foot.

Drogie

1.) 03 Dec 2018 20:35:36
Oh no, this means Moreno, we're doomed ☹️.


2.) 03 Dec 2018 20:49:03
What next, oh yeah, I stepped on a piece of lego! so I won't be fit I'm afraid ;) . Bloody dead leg lol come on Robbo shake it off lad. I reckon he'll be fine, fingers crossed.


3.) 03 Dec 2018 21:04:05
Usually dead leg means could even be something worse, I mean come on a dead leg is ok in 15 minutes.


4.) 04 Dec 2018 11:12:31
A dead leg can knock a player out for a few days. Suffered from them during my playing days and can be nasty depending on how hard you get hit.


5.) 04 Dec 2018 16:12:35
A professional dead leg is different to the one your mate gave you as a kid hailstones.


 

 

17 Nov 2018 17:26:07
Hearing Gomez has travelled to the England camp with a slight Achilles issue, anyone else heard anything?!

Drogie

1.) 18 Nov 2018 14:40:37
Well he is a starter in their match vs Crotaia and so far he is hafing a decent first half. Maybe a false rumour you heard.


2.) 18 Nov 2018 18:40:44
Radio 5 live reporters it along with bbc sport mate.


3.) 19 Nov 2018 12:44:22
Likely he has been dealing with it for a while now. Achilles issues aren't normally a short term thing and it is just a case of managing the injury and game time throughout the season.

Regarding the TAA injury, I posted on Saturday that he went down during the warm up clutching his leg.

Whilst we probably have enough cover, I thought it was quite irresponsible of him to carry on and play. You could see he was in some discomfort throughout. I also think that the medics should have stopped Trent from playing too.

Just my opinion of course.

Drogie

1.) 15 Jan 2019 18:28:24
Hindsight is a wonderful thing, he looked okay to me and played the full 90.


2.) 15 Jan 2019 18:52:13
Drogie, Hindsight intelligence means nothing PROVIDED you did not feel this way at the time he kept playing. If you did then fair play for being consistent. If you did not then like I said, hindsight means nothing.

I thought he was fine and Klopp made the decision to play him still cos the medical team took a look at him during the warm up and during the game as well. They prolly made the decision with the best info they had at the time without hindsight to bank on except of course, you think they can see the future which they can't. Maybe you should consider such information before making your judgement after the fact, of course.


3.) 15 Jan 2019 19:20:11
Nothing to do with hindsitght chaps, like I said it’s my opinion

I made trip down to Brighton and live, he certainly didn’t look fine to start with, if you’d have seen the warm up, he looked in a lot of pain with players around him.

I also discussed it with a friend that listened to the commentary on radio Merseyside, the simmmeriser was of the same opinion.


4.) 15 Jan 2019 19:33:14
Summmariser even.


5.) 15 Jan 2019 21:03:26
I'm with you on that Drogie, he should've being pulled off as soon as it was known that he wasn't right. I didn't see the warm up or what you saw but I'll take your word for it and going on that he shouldn't of played.

I can understand him playing through it, he's a young lad and probably tried to shrug it off but the medical staff should've stepped in and got him off to prevent a worse injury.


6.) 15 Jan 2019 21:11:47
How do we know he made it worse by playing? He could’ve been out for the same time whether he’d played or not.
It is what it is, no use pointing fingers now.


7.) 15 Jan 2019 21:31:22
Point is BB it could've being a potentially bad injury, if there's a potential threat of an injury then he should've immediately been brought off. Why risk it is my biggest question here.


8.) 15 Jan 2019 21:33:52
As my old grammy used to say, hind legs are a wonderful thing.


9.) 15 Jan 2019 22:23:36
I get that Salah but what’s done is done.
He was obviously examined by the medical staff at the time and they deemed him ok to play. They are a lot more qualified than we are to make that call.
We will never know whether playing made it worse or not as it’s done now we can’t change it.
Trying to pin the blame on someone isn’t going to change anything. Players get injured and sometimes you just can’t anticipate or prevent it.


10.) 16 Jan 2019 07:15:00
Unless you pull a hamstring stoneage, then they become a pain in the backside 👍.

A slight scare from the Amex.

Trent went down holding his knee in the warm up! Had some treatment and got to his feet.

He has come out for the start, Milner was warming up just in case. Let's hope it's ok!

Drogie

1.) 12 Jan 2019 15:18:49
Looks like he’ll have to come off, yet another injury, seem we could be in trouble here with the defensive injuries!


2.) 12 Jan 2019 16:57:14
looks fine to me!


3.) 12 Jan 2019 18:13:40
The kid is a warrior. Played the full 90 thru pain and made the key interception down the stretch, to close out the game. Bravo, son!


 

 

08 Jan 2019 21:20:26
VVD has up a slight knock, have any of the Ed's heard anything?

Drogie

{Ed025's Note - i think the "knock" was a bit of a ruse to give him a blow drogie, it covers klopps back if the fans have a go about the weakness of the team he put out mate..


1.) 08 Jan 2019 21:32:40
Sounds like a fair comment mate.


2.) 08 Jan 2019 22:37:27
We'll know on Saturday.


3.) 09 Jan 2019 00:35:27
I think everyone who plays the game gets a knock usually. its a contact sport. plus they go through the pain using painkillers. what an effect it will have on their bodies no one will care🙄🙄🙄.


 

 

08 Jan 2019 18:42:55
I've heard Mr Adaptable - Fabhino, will be one of the front 3 in a couple of weeks.

Once the season has finished, he's going to be the one responsible printing the players names and numbers on the back of the shirts when he's draughted into the club shop.

Drogie

{Ed025's Note - love it drogie..


1.) 08 Jan 2019 19:03:37
Ed001 mentioned he also wants a bit of evening work.

As your editing assistant 25 😉.

{Ed025's Note - im off work at the moment drogie so have time to kill, when i go back i will be harder to find than a liverpool midfielder goal mate.. :)


2.) 08 Jan 2019 19:17:55
Haha.


3.) 08 Jan 2019 20:58:27
Yeah, apart from the rash tackle that he had to try and make otherwise the ball would've been played to Raul or jonny easily. And tbf he made every other tackle, header and block. Never played CB in professional football but looked like he been doing it for years. That's classy.

Anyone remember lma manager on ps 1 or 2? You could look at a players profile and a blue shade covered what part of the pitch the player could play in. Steven Gerrard blue patch covered virtuall the whole pitch. I imagine Fabhino's profile would cover a good 70% of the pitch.
The guy has class.


4.) 09 Jan 2019 00:37:04
Its fabinho😝.


5.) 09 Jan 2019 04:51:48
Ooh, spelling lesson. Congratulations you win the pedantic Cup. Oh sorry pedantic trophy.

We don’t need Couthino back, plus he well and truly burnt his bridges.

Perhaps Barcelona will go on strike in order to engineer his exit.

Moreno is a very well liked character around the dressing room apparently and has helped a number of new players settle in.

I do find it slightly odd that we’ve offered him a new contract though.

But what do I know.

Sometimes you have to be ruthless and lose face.

The owners may have had to make a U turn, get on their
Knees and apologise to Southampton. Boy was it worth it! As for overpaying, watching him live week in week out, no chance we’ve overpaid.

Macca and Ed002.

Peter Moore gave a comprehensive interview on Radio Merseyside at the back end of last year. I listened to the interview in full and from what he was saying, the club is certainly moving in the right direction, across all aspects of the business. There is still a lot of work to do.

Moore insisted he will do everything in his power to help Jurgen Klopp deliver success at Liverpool. Since the deadly 90’s we have witnessed the only way to deliver success in today’s game is through finance.

What Moore doesn’t have any control of is the players. As we all know in today’s game, players hold all the cards and if they want to leave, they will engineer a move away. So in the case of Salah, I totally trust Ed002 when he says his representatives / agent are touting him around.

The only way we can keep these players is through success and paying top dollar in wages. Prime example is David De Gea. And I refer to him as the later.

Interesting times ahead .

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - I explained that the requests from Salah's representative got him laughed out of Spain in the summer and he has begged Real Madrid to reconsider rather than buy a couple of the high-end wide players they are looking at and look again at Salah - offering to renegotiate. As I have said, he also spoke with another side.}

Spot on Ed001, I saw the whole game too and completely agree. We weren’t great at times but totally dominated! Apart from the Fabinho blocked shot right at the end, Brighton didn’t have a shot in target!

Drogie
