I find International friendlies as boring as most supports, but Wijnaldum's goal against Germany is worth watching if you get the chance. Lovely quick feat and a great finish. he's a good player, especially this year, but I think he has a tendency to overthink everything. Could definitely raise his game a level of two considering his ability.

(Van Dijk scored as well in the same game) .

Hi Ed001, I'm sure the player profile list must be ridiculous at this point, but if he's not already there could you add Falcao? Always been one of my favourite players. Possibly the best striker in the world before his injury.

{Ed001's Note - actually the player profile list is not too bad as I got through a load in a row over the summer and knocked it right down. Added Falcao for you mate.}


1.) 04 Oct 2018 19:11:48
Ed01, what do you think about Turkish Hakan Sukur? Legend in your eyes?

{Ed001's Note - I suppose he has to be really. I had not thought about it before, but he would have to qualify for the goals he scored for his nation. Legendary status is not just about being the best players in the world, I think.}


2.) 04 Oct 2018 20:44:01
For a moment there I thought you were talking about the Brazilian Falcao. What a player. A DM/ CM who could score as well as any AM. Lousy manager though.


3.) 04 Oct 2018 21:36:22
Matt Le Tiss seemed to have a glut of goals in Goal of the Season every year?


4.) 04 Oct 2018 22:00:10
With you there, Ed. I loved Sukur as a teenager growing up even tho, he seemed to forget his immense talent and ability at home whenever he went abroad to AC Milan or Inter Milan) . However for his country, he was a god. A true national treasure and the real definition for the word Talisman. They may have not won games with him BUT they could never win W/ O him. Great player. He came up with the youth setup in Turkey in 1994 with the U23's that included Rustu (GK), Bulent, Hakan Unsal, Ergun Pembe, etc (all in the 3rd place WC team of 2002), all under the guidance of another legendary manager named Fatih Terim.

{Ed001's Note - he was a bit like those two Chilean strikers Zamarano and was it Sala? I can't think of his name right now. They seemed to grow when they put on their country's shirt and he was the same. It seemed to give him another 10% to his game.}


5.) 05 Oct 2018 07:03:45
Marcelo Salas Ed, played for Lazio.

{Ed001's Note - that's him! Thank you.}

Last night was the worst game of football I've seen in a long time. Both teams were shocking, though Napoli ultimately deserved the victory. I'm not sure if the team is tired or was instructed to play for a draw but I can't get over how lethargic we were. It was like the players hadn't played together before. Was baffled by Fabinho's introduction with Shaqiri and Sturridge on the bench. Alisson was the only one who I thought had a particularly good game.

One loss really isn't the end of the world, but the manner in which is happened is frustrating. Just want to watch a good game of football, which with Liverpool is almost never an issue.


1.) 04 Oct 2018 08:22:02
Eamon I agree and the match was dismal.
Partly because Napoli did a good job of shutting us down and partly because we played really poor.
Ancellotti will be happy, as his team chased and gave us no time on the ball, but they were helped by the fact that Mane continued to run aimlessly into dead ends, Salah was dreadful again, Firmino didn't get a look in, our midfield was second best all night, and defensively in the last 15 mins, we lost concentration.
Hope for a better result on Sunday but I am not confident at all.


2.) 04 Oct 2018 08:46:36
Could the Stadium of contributed to the lethargic performance, bottom tier empty it was like a morgue.


3.) 04 Oct 2018 12:26:02
The stadium is a good point. I expected a hostile loud atmosphere but it felt like a preseason game.


4.) 04 Oct 2018 13:01:32
I’ve seen a lot worse than that in recent times but Liverpool’s performance was definitely poor.

I thought Napoli played really well assisted by some generous decisions with respect to yellow cards.

We didn’t get going, something is definitely wrong with Salah and for my money he is not worth his place in the team. I’d bring Shaq in against City. Salah looks like he needs some time off to get his head together.


5.) 04 Oct 2018 14:59:16
I'm surprised Liverpool did not react better to a back 5. They should be used to teams doing that to them. Having said that, I still think we will go through and probably win the group. I can't wait for Napoli to come to Liverpool. PSG will play their best when we go to Paris and they will leave themselves open in the back. I can't wait for that match.


6.) 04 Oct 2018 15:30:07
I was very shocked at around 65 mins in to see 11 Liverpool players in our own half, whilst Napoli were passing it around the back. It really did feel like we went there to draw and it backfired.


7.) 04 Oct 2018 16:17:44
We have unfortunately moved on from that blistering all out attacking philosophy. Something that served as our identity!


8.) 04 Oct 2018 17:21:36
Harry, don't take this the wrong way but have you ever considered saying something positive or is that too much to ask? I do question, sometimes, if you're even a LFC fan!


9.) 04 Oct 2018 17:57:20
yes, we played really poor football, and lots for Klopp to look at be4 the City game,
with 5 mins to go, Napoli were throwing everything at us, what is wrong with holding our fullbacks and playing for the draw, we got caught out, and to be fair, Napoli really did deserve to win,
Liverpool did nothing to claim a win,
would I have taken Salah off,
yes I would have subbed him at half time,
we needed some energy up front, and, sorry Salah needs some time off to re charge and come back stronger,
would I play Salah V Man City,
no, this game is way too important, we can't be carrying any passengers,
play the Shaq .


10.) 04 Oct 2018 18:32:41
Our last 6 games have been against Spurs, Southampton, PSG, Chelsea twice and Napoli, all massive games apart from the Southampton game and all games in which we have been pushed right until the end except for the Southampton game. It’s only normal that there is a drop in performance after so many tough games and luckily our next 6 games after Sunday are a lot more manageable.


11.) 04 Oct 2018 19:02:28
Toe knee harry is definitely a Liverpool fan mate just a very excitable one and comes out with rash comments and makes zero sense most of the time, he generally wants the best for Liverpool at heart. Altho seems to think he can do a better job than klopp at times and has love for midfielders that don't play for us he is still a red tho.


12.) 04 Oct 2018 19:21:09
All valid points, lads. Mane really needs to get his ear pulled for his penchant for playing for himself at times. There were times that it seemed he was more concerned with showing that he can resist multiple challenges instead of playing smart football. We were poor and that is that. Learn the lessons, get better, prepare well for City and burn the tape of the game after analysing it and move on. Up Da Pool!

Hey ed001, any chance of a match review? was a thoroughly entertaining game. Thought a draw was a fair result though we might have been able to snatch a win if we took some of our chances better. So much to be admired about both teams. Can't remember Hazard starting a season this well.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, I just haven't had a chance to rewatch the game yet. Hopefully tomorrow.}


1.) 30 Sep 2018 19:52:03
Salah isn't handling the pressure very well is he. Player of the year, its a big responsibility. I'm starting to wish kdb won it. Salah would have curled the ball into the far corner last season twice last night. OK one may not have been wide enough and the keeper may have got a hand to it but it still would have gone in. 2 1. Last season he had a point to prove but now he doesn't, best player in the league. It's a hard one to live up to, especially when everyone is saying hazard is the best.

I have faith in mo salah and although i didn't think he would reach the heights of last season I still fancy him to go 20+.


2.) 30 Sep 2018 20:08:12
As a few people have pointed out, I suspect the injury has played a bigger part then the 'pressure' though I'm sure that doesn't help. I'm not overly concerned, his build up yesterday was great just missing that final touch. Though I'd argue the same could be said of any of the front three. Salah just has more eyes on him after his performances last year, I'd also back him to get 20+.


3.) 30 Sep 2018 20:09:27
No one thought he would thrive as much as he did last year, premier League record scorer in 1st full season as a starter . This doesn't surprise me one bit but he probably feels a responsibility too reproduce the same form as last season and just needs too play through this cold patch til he feels happy with his form . It's not even bad form 3 goals 3 assists penalties won, it's just the standards he has set for himself and let's b honest since the final against Madrid he has had a few knocks like the shoulder injury, not being 100 percent for the world cup, the issues with Egypt and even knobeads here in Liverpool trying too blacken his name with being on the phone in his car . Soon we will have our Mo back it's about how u bounce back from the knocks and i believe he will come back stronger .


4.) 30 Sep 2018 20:33:15
Just come back from a terrible injury that was caused in the most heartbreaking fashion. Mo definitely isn’t his best but game time will help. Have a little patience guys, it’s going to be a long season.


5.) 30 Sep 2018 20:40:05
Me too hailstones. I didn't mean my post to sound like an attack on salah albeit a small one. I love him, always will for what he did last season and the romance of him missing most of the European Cup final Coz of an injury. I'll always remember it. I'm also a little worried though, it's not just mo, the team as a whole aren't playing as well as they did last season. We are still winning so I am happy, we have some fantastic new players. Becker earned his keep against Chelsea.

The boys need to click though, if we want to win this league. Pressure is part of that. Keita has shown glimpses and I think he is going to thrive, needs to feel more part of the team but that comes with getting through tough tests with the other players, who had all played a part on reaching the CL final. I'm still seeing mane not pass to salah though. I hate to say it. Of course they do pass but I still saw moments when mane could have passed but didn't. I hope it's in my head, mane probably sees two cbs on salah and so goes left instead.


6.) 30 Sep 2018 20:56:38
Twice salah had the chance to curl one into the far corner. He was in perfect position twice and one he scuffed and the other was a mis placed pass. He would have buried them last season. That came down to pressure. Playing at Stamford Bridge for anyone but Chelsea comes with plenty of pressure in of itself, especially Liverpool. And he was a Chelsea player once too. But I do think the added pressure is having an effect.


7.) 30 Sep 2018 20:58:02
I also think he will come through it and show hazard who is really the best player in the league. Of course, he has the medal to prove it.


8.) 30 Sep 2018 20:59:53
Well impressed with Joe gomez. He is so calm under pressure. For me he is our best rcb.


9.) 30 Sep 2018 21:00:18
Mane Man, trust me, it’s in your head. The front 3 were awesome last season and it just hasn’t quite clicked for them yet this season. But it will do, hopefully starting next Sunday against Manchester City.


10.) 30 Sep 2018 22:18:28
Mane man, our attack (albeit small) on Salah is uncalled for, IMO. The guy is clearly having issues on and off the pitch hence, it is affecting his play and decision-making. He is over-thinking things whereas last season, he was on such a high that anything he touched turned to goals. Football is a game of instints and the day you start thinking on a pitch esp. as an attacking player then your confidence is shot. We can all understand that.

Pressure? What pressure? You mean the pressure of being the hope of a whole country? Or the pressure of being targeted by opposing defenders and still dropping 44 goals on them still? There is no more pressure than normal for such a player who is an international star and a national treasure. The issue here is that he just has to keep doing what he is doing as in getting into good positions and getting chances and with the confidence his coaches and team mates have in him along with the unwavering support of the fans, he will come good. I'm not worried.


11.) 30 Sep 2018 22:52:14
Man mane a think salah will come good a don't think the start to last season was any different for him.

The problem is the media, imo somebody does something great one week then there the best player in the world next week they change there mind when somebody else does something spectacular. They always look week to week rather than over the whole season. On our behalf salah will come good and we will go on to be champions, yestadays result will prove to be a very good one come may, seasons before we'd of lost that game but this season drawing with Chelsea away and if we can get results away from the rest of the top six we will almost definitely be number 1 when the curtain comes down on the season.


12.) 01 Oct 2018 09:44:17
as usual the couch psychologists are getting in their own way. Salah just needs time. would be far more concerned if he wasn't getting any chances or creating nothing. but that hasn't been the case. classic case of mis-understanding how performance and output interact with each other. In this case, Salah can certainly add more to his game, but let's not let his "lack of goals" torment your overall assessment of the player and certainly let's not go down the path of psychoanalyzing his mentality.


 

 

20 Sep 2018 15:58:26
One player that we've been linked to in recent months is lucas paquetá (Though interest from manchester seems more serious), was just wandering what your take on the player was Ed001? if you were familiar. Ed002 had some interesting insight on the Manchester United page.

{Ed001's Note - only know him by reputation and that is a difficult thing to be sure about. Neymar had a great rep as did Ganso and they were both just show ponies.}

Thats definitely worth noting Ed001. Ed002 stated that a general agreement was reached but that concerns were expressed over his "comportement", which lead me to believe that this may have been why Arsenal pulled out. I'm personally of the belief that this will result in Ramsey keeping his head down and getting to work, ultimately sealing the new contract. But you're right, its definitely something to consider. Especially under Emery who won't afford him the same luxuries Wenger did.

{Ed001's Note - it was why Arsenal pulled out, as he said. I have mentioned before on the Arsenal site that this has been a long term issue with the player, resulting in him refusing to pass the ball to certain players in the past.}

He's started the season well and he's a talented player on his day, but I do worry about his injury record and past disrupting changing rooms. Still, he'd add goals to the midfield which is one of our only issues. Additionally, I saw similar criticism labeled at the Ox (though I was a fan) and Shaqiri (Who I was not a fan, but have been pleasantly surprised) so you never know.

I agree with you Reynard, I see the situation going more the way of Ozil then Sanchez.

{Ed001's Note - difference is Arsenal pulled out of the Ramsey contract talks.}

Hope that isn’t the case and that if it is he enjoys something of a renaissance. It wasn’t too long ago that it seemed as though Rakitic’s legs were gone and now look at him. Either way a move to Liverpool isn’t happening.

One of the few players I disagree with you on Ed001, I've always found Hummels to be a good defender who reads the game well. He's slow but his positional sense is excellent. Great player to have when breaking down defensive teams or launching a counter attack. That said he's been particularly poor in the air in his last couple seasons which is strange as it used to be one of his biggest strengths. I find it hard to imagine him moving to Liverpool but I think he'd be an upgrade on Lovren or Matip. Would prefer to develop Gomez though.

McIntyre is awful. He's about as funny as my Granddad Hugh, who while hilarious, has been dead for several years.

{Ed001's Note - his positional sense is ok, but the speed of the game means he often can't get into position as he is too slow. His tackling is weak and he has no spring in his legs any more due to injuries. He is finished at the top level by the looks of it, sadly.}

Alisson, Finnan, Van Dijk, Agger, Robertson, Gerrard, Alonso, Milner (on current form, Keita or the ox in the long term), salah, Suarez, Mane.

I’d say alisson, salah and mane are the easiest choices. Liverpool have had some shocking wingers. Purely on talent alone Suarez makes my list, but if we’re talking about overall contribution, replace him with firmino.

Has Arda Turan always been this much trouble? I remember a number of years back he was quoted as being a huge Liverpool fan. Was a hell of a player at atletico, all seems to have gone downhill. fast.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, he has always been known for arrogance.}

I saw it described as a “fantastically pointless clattering” which seems apt. I can’t think of a more dislikable figure currently in football, the stamp on Raheem last night exemplifies that. fair play to dier.

With his stock on the rise (deservedly so) it may never happen, but Chris Hughton would be my first choice.

I can only assume its off the back of our vaguely successful 2016 Euro Campaign. Ed001, were O'Neil to be sacked who do you think Ireland could realistically go for manager wise?

I agree, Roy Keane might be one of Ireland greatest players in terms of talent, but not in terms of his contribution to the national team. Especially after the 2002 world cup. I think the idea was to pair O'neil with his complete opposite in terms of temperament. Though why the Irish FA were interested in creating a double act over a successful managerial partnership is beyond me. Would much rather have someone like Robbie involved in the setup (though not at a managerial level) .

{Ed001's Note - I don't see any outstanding candidates to be honest. The whole FAI is a mess and the team has been slipping in quality for a long time now. It needs a complete rebuild and a manager to come in who will actually work as part of that rebuild. Not like Keane and O'Neill, someone who can actually coach and help improve young players. A bit of tactical nous would help, but the first step is to improve the quality of players coming through.}
