About our backup winger. We're saying Dembele would be too expensive for backup and wouldn't want to be on the bench. We're saying Wilson isn't up to scratch, and we're saying Woodburn is too young.

What's happening with Lazar Markovic? We can't sign any quality as they don't want to be backup. We already have a player that was mooted as the next big thing 3 years ago. Has he improved at all? Could he fill in as backup? Or is he just nowhere near good enough?

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - Malkovich is to be sold but money is the issue at present. His time at Liverpool has been an expensive - much more expensive than people realise - disaster.}


1.) 04 Jun 2018 20:29:06
Eds2 I understand maybe Liverpools worst financial investment.


2.) 04 Jun 2018 20:34:23
John Malkovich? 🤨.


3.) 04 Jun 2018 22:14:15
Malkovich Malkovich.


4.) 04 Jun 2018 23:17:14
could you explain what you mean by that ed002? just curious about how it was so costly.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained before but there was a side contract for image rights that was crippling.}

I've seen several posts asking for a backup for Salah/ Mane. The likes of Arnautovic and Shaqiri have been mentioned, neither of which good enough, young enough and won't want to be on the bench.

My choice would be Brighton's Anthony Knockheart. He's skillful, fast, really works his socks off and I've not heard of any attitude problems (like I've heard about the other two) . I also think he'd be happy to be on the bench for a big club and prove himself and/ or be cover.

What do you think?

I think he'd fit in really well to Klopp's system.

EpicPotato

1.) 06 May 2018 21:16:38
I do rate knockaert but I’d rather go for izqueirdo because of his sheer ice and dribbling ability. He would fit better in our system imo.


2.) 06 May 2018 22:05:14
Pace not ice*.


3.) 06 May 2018 22:39:19
I said last season that we should go and sign Zaha and Pieters from stoke. klopp could then either rotate front four or drop mane into midfield Pieters would be a good back up for Robbo. I'm afraid Moreno isnt.


4.) 07 May 2018 01:58:18
Arnautovic not good enough but Knockaert is?


5.) 07 May 2018 05:49:35
Langland- you said last season that Pieters would be a good backup for Robbo? We didn’t even have Robbo last season.


6.) 07 May 2018 08:16:48
That's actually a good choice. Will he be willing to come with limited playing time? .


7.) 07 May 2018 08:37:13
Not good enough on the ball to play in our system! Aurnatovic is ok!


8.) 07 May 2018 10:06:02
Well it's certainly divided opinion.

No name and Cobra666: I was referring to the fact that Arnautovic wouldn't want to be backup or have to prove his place in the side, wheras Knockheart is young enough and I also think flexible enough.


9.) 07 May 2018 14:43:53
Cobra666
I said last season that we should sign Pieters and Zaha.
We didn't sign either.
We should sign them this season.
Pieters would be a good back up for Robbo and if ever Salah leaves we should play Pieters a faint him.
Zaha would be a brill addition. Proven premiership and Klopp could make him a better player.

{Ed001's Note - oh yes buy dross to take us forward to a new Hodgson era. Great.}


10.) 07 May 2018 15:44:09
I personally think he’s too inconsistant and feel like we’ve took a big step in our quality of recruitment in the last 18 months, would like to think we wouldn’t take a backwards step targeting mediocre players again. An attacking midfielder capable of playing in the front 3 is what I thinks best, then we can both rotate them and have them all starting when needed. Abit like how coutinho was used in the first half of this season.


11.) 07 May 2018 17:20:15
TIA19. Inconsistency is what you often get with young players. Just them when they have a good game and when they're having a bad day, if they're still giving 100% (but just not quite pulling it off) and that's enough for me. On his good days, he's absolutely quality. He really gave Man Utd's defence a surprise and something to think about.

Consistency can be coached. The raw talent can't.

I really hope I'm not shooting us in the foot here. Touch wood he doesn't have a blinder against us next Sunday. Haha.


12.) 07 May 2018 19:41:17
Shaquiri? Anautovic? Zaha? Good grief, what is going on here? As Ed said, these guys are not good enough to even be the backup to our backups. Instead of these guys, I would just stick with Harry Wilson and the other kids. Like Epic, I do like Knockaerts and to some extent Izquierdo even tho, they may still be raw.


13.) 07 May 2018 22:18:38
I think Redmond from Southampton would be a good shout to cover both wings.


14.) 08 May 2018 12:39:45
Haha, come on Ed001 surely, a 29 year old Championship left back with one assist in 29 games is the answer to our prayers. Knockaert and Izquierdo are decent players but not really good enough for Liverpool and the premium on Premier League players means we'd get better value elsewhere. And good grief another Redmond fan. Please give it up, he is just pants. Is it because he scored a goal on Saturday? You know that's his first all season? He's not even good enough for Southampton and Harry Wilson is already a better player than Redmond.

{Ed001's Note - Redmond has been awful all season.}


15.) 08 May 2018 18:02:26
Redmond? Yikes!


 

 

30 Jul 2017 20:28:12
Hi Eds, I'm guessing you're sick of all the Coutinho talk. Id be more worried if Barcelona were trying to get Mane (who was our player of the season) . I hope we keep pip, but I'd be more worried if they were in for Mane.

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - That would be Inter who are interested in Mane.}


1.) 30 Jul 2017 20:57:39
Just shows what a top bunch of players we have amassed that clubs like Barca, Inter and Juventus want to sign them.


2.) 30 Jul 2017 21:04:57
Can inter afford £200m? 😉.

Hull City want Kent on loan for a season as part of the Robertson deal.

EpicPotato

1.) 15 Jul 2017 14:57:02
Would be good for the lad if true.


2.) 15 Jul 2017 16:00:37
KENT is a speedster. The loan will really be of benefit to all (LFC, HULL, RYAN)


 

 

16 Mar 2017 18:57:50
ESPN are saying we're in for Anderson Talisca. Any truth in it?

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - It is like a timewarp.

There was interest in Benfica's Anderson Talisca from Liverpool and others in late 2014. Wolves showed interest last summer and a deal nearly happened. Lazio are interested in taking him to Italy now.}


1.) 16 Mar 2017 19:24:41
Thanks Ed. It seemed a bit random as I'd not heard anything for ages about him.

{Ed002's Note - Well, he will be moving on - Benfica need the money and don't want him. Besiktas don't have the money to buy him but would like to. Lazio want him to replace Keita Balde Diao. I don't see Liverpool in the picture.}


2.) 16 Mar 2017 19:41:41
Thanks again for the reply ed. I know it's the Liverpool pages, but where is Diao likely to go? I rate that lad.

{Ed002's Note - Try the European pages please - it is nothing to do with Liverpool.}

How can it ever be good business to sign a player for £12m and let him have a release clause in his contract for £13m.

I don't know which mastermind at stoke sorted that deal out, but I'm glad he's nowhere near our club.

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - It was to do with relegation - nothing more.}


1.) 13 Jul 2018 14:43:54
Ah, thanks Ed002. It did strike me as a little strange to have a release clause at pretty much the same amount as he was bought for.


2.) 13 Jul 2018 15:24:29
Quite Easily Demonstrated. Brilliant response, Ed02.


 

 

10 Jul 2018 21:19:15
I didn't realise there was a legends list. Can we have one on Carlos Valderrama?

The only player I've ever thought was as good as Jan Molby but more mobile. Both great players.

EpicPotato

{Ed001's Note - yep, he is on the list.}


1.) 10 Jul 2018 22:39:21
I dread to think how long that list of yours is getting Ed.


2.) 11 Jul 2018 02:41:01
I imagine a long scroll rolled up like a tube and ed01, a wise man with a long, white beard.

Always say this but they are cool. I love football, one of the biggest things in my life, has Been since I was 7 and learning about the players we have admired is great. Will we have a degree in football history in 3 year? It's a privilege but I think everybody knows how lucky we are to have the eds knowledge and opinion. I won't lie, the opinions of ed1, ed025 and ed02 have shaped a lot of my opinions. I find myself repeating what I've read here to friends and family. Good man tris, thank you man.

{Ed0333's Note - if your role model is Tristan Burke then I will pray for you child. I mean it’s all in the name.


3.) 11 Jul 2018 18:13:11
Oh you too ed033. Just don't see you on the liverpool page much these days.

{Ed0333's Note - flattery will get you everywhere mate, and for sure into Ed’s 001 knickers. I’ve started working out again after 5 months off am doing double sessions but now that I know your missing me I’ll make special effort to edit just for you. Please keep flirting with me I like it.


 

 

07 Jul 2018 21:07:09
If he wasn't already a Liverpool player, there'd have been plenty "Who's this Dejan Lovren guy? We should sign him" posts.

EpicPotato

1.) 07 Jul 2018 21:17:38
For all the excitement about Mane, Salah and Robbie, Lovren and Hendo are both having really good World Cups.

He's taking goalkicks now cos their keeper is injured.


2.) 07 Jul 2018 22:06:46
Either Lovren or Henderson will start in both Champions League Final and World Cup final in a matter of months.
Amazing year for either one (both done well)


3.) 07 Jul 2018 22:34:23
Lovren has been consistently good this world cup.


4.) 08 Jul 2018 15:50:06
Prince, Lovs has been one of the best CB's in this tournament, IMO. Those ahead of him are Varane, Vertonghen, Umtiti. It also shows that having a good partnership at CB is very important, more important than a CB's individual ability as being complimentary as a pair are paramount for a successful CB partnership. Partnerships like Aderweireld/ Kompany/ Vertonghen and of course, Lovren/ Vida attest to this glaring observation.


 

 

24 Jun 2018 20:56:37
We should sign Juan Cuadrado. Not because he's just had a decent game, but because he's another Mourinho Chelsea reject.

EpicPotato

1.) 25 Jun 2018 04:05:40
And because he's actually pretty decent.


2.) 25 Jun 2018 21:40:27
He was also unable to settle in England even tho, he is a good player.


 

 

22 Jun 2018 16:16:54
Just seen a Man United fan wearing and England shirt. The only time I want to see three lions on a United fan's chest is at Knowsley Safari Park.

Lingard looked a boy among men in the Tunisia game.


2.) 22 Jun 2018 21:14:50
Joking aside. I support Rashford, Lingard, Jones, Sterling when I'm supporting my country. I don't care who they play for. My comment was entirely in jest. Come on England :)


3.) 22 Jun 2018 21:51:03
I do too to be fair. But my comment about lingard wasn't coz he is utd, I thought he was physically bullied out of the game. Looked to young to be able to stamp any authority on the game. I think he'll get one or two this world cup though. He ghosts in and scores eh.

My main reason for thinking this will still happen is that Shaqiri has been given the 23 shirt. I know it means very little, but there must be a reason for keeping the no 10 shirt free.

I think it'll be Hazard and Kane. Personally for Madrid, I'd go for Lukaku than Kane, but they'd end up paying far more than he's worth dealing with Utd. Spurs will have a price in mind for Kane and Madrid will probably pay it.

I remember when they mattered. They had a beast of a striker called Daniel Amokachi. He never really reached his potential as they kept subbing him for Paul Rideout.

If he'd have signed for us when we wanted him, he'd have had more minutes at the World Cup, guaranteed. Regardless of him wanting assurances.

Fair play to the lad for signing it. Last I heard, Klopp didn't rate him. what's changed? As if it was I, as a youth player and the main man didn't rate me, I'd be off.

What's the obsession with Alisson? He did nothing for Roma when we scored about 30 goals against them and has shown nothing in the World Cup to show he's at the level to demand anywhere near that kind of money.

If he doesn't work out, as people have said, we'll sell him on. We're buying him at 2015 prices. We've very little to lose.

EpicPotato

{Ed0333's Note - if it transpires in a season or two we want to sell him that will mean he’s not up to scratch so who will buy a journeyman on high wages with a massive ego who has little resale value. I beg to differ if his this transfer doesn’t work out we’ll lose money on him.

He's a very very promising player. He's not a patch on Fat Ronaldo though. He was a different gravy.
