Eds, what's the play with young Allan Rodriguez. What are the chances he gets his permit next season. Are the club wanting to fight to keep him?


{Ed001's Note - the club would love to keep him, it is most likely he gets another loan move next season.}

1.) 19 Apr 2017 12:39:57
How good is he eds? Not seen much of him. Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - he is highly rated by the club and in Germany.}

2.) 19 Apr 2017 22:00:11
i know i was surprised that he managed to get loaned to a german team in the top league.

What would you say is the reason for him not getting much game time is it literally a case of him just not what the manager wants in his starting 11?

{Ed001's Note - he is young, still getting used to the country and not really ready to be a regular starter.}

Ed1, done a preview for round 1? Or have i missed that? Cheers.


{Ed001's Note - no I didn't get a chance sorry.}



09 Aug 2017 00:46:36
Seems to me like Coutinho is key in all of this. And I like what ed001 had said about the club, despite the outcome eventually may disadvantage us, work to find a deal in the best interests of the player too. Some may not agree with this, but I do believe it is the better way to conduct ourselves.

So Coutinho is super key here.
Ed001 my question is - You've said the club will let him go if he wants to go and various eds have reported that the club are aware of his desire to join barca. It seems like Coutinho has been relatively passive about his desires if not persistent. Very different to Suarez, torres and sterling. Do you have any insight into how far the club would be prepared to push back against how Coutinho has presented his desire to leave and forcing him to stay another year versus settling for a deal that suits all this summer? In essence if there is a chance that we can reject the bids and Coutinho may just pull up his socks and get on with it, are the club prepared to go there?
Do you think that is how we should approach this?


{Ed001's Note - Klopp does not like to work with players that are unhappy at being there. So he will not want to push back too hard. Happy players perform better, usually. However, with a world cup coming up and his place in jeopardy, the club may well be willing to take the chance. It is impossible to say for sure, as I don't know how hard he will push to go. It all comes down to Couts.}

1.) 09 Aug 2017 05:08:04
awesome thanks for the reply ed001 :)
tricky balance for manager's aye? seems like if the fans were in charge decisions would be made far more easily aye. :p.

{Ed001's Note - and probably always the wrong one!}

2.) 09 Aug 2017 05:38:56
Ed, would you not draw comparisons between Coutinho now and perhaps Suarez's last season with us? Suarez was said to be willing to move but we got him to stay and he ended up getting player of the year.

{Ed001's Note - no comparison at all, they are totally different people and Suarez was an arse who forced the club into a corner. Coutinho has conducted himself well and it would be a shame to now be the arse to him.}

3.) 09 Aug 2017 06:00:16
I guess the best we can do is persuade him to stay another year.

4.) 09 Aug 2017 08:08:59
Besides Suarez's posturing, we actually had a lot of leverage and persuasion to say no to arsenal and then push suarez to wait another year for the bigger clubs to come calling. The big fish is here, right now.

5.) 09 Aug 2017 08:44:38
Nice post, OP and great reponse, Ed01. It is a very delicate situation. It is all down to Couts now. Will he give us one more season to epay all the he himself said we have done for him and his family and his career as a thank you gift or does he just do what is best for him only and leave? That is the question. The club and Klopp gave to walk a fine line and that is the challenge. We shall see.



04 Aug 2017 13:06:05
Traffic on Barcelona page is so slow considering the Neymar sale. Puts the lfc pages to shame lol

Anyways my question to ed2 is this - what are the tangible impacts of Liverpool's inappropriate and illegal transfer approaches? Either already realized or potential?


{Ed002's Note - Fine, points deduction, transfer ban, kicked out of Europe for a while - all sorts of things potentially.}

1.) 04 Aug 2017 13:32:08
ED02, I know you will not post this ................ .

{Ed002's Note - You start any post with bullshit like that and no it will not get posted. As for your point, you fail to grasp that the behavior is well beyong unprofessional and unacceptable - which is one of the reasons they are in the gutter again. And no, not everybody else acts like this.}

2.) 04 Aug 2017 15:09:08
Ok ED02, appreciate your reply and points.

Fair enough.

Cool thanks ed2.



26 Jul 2017 13:12:37
Pure speculation, but as ed002 has said that veratti is barca's #1 and Coutinho #2, if you're Coutinho and he is aware, wouldn't you want the move asap? I'm imagining that even if Klopp trys to sell a vision of "one more year" that at the back of coutinho's mind would be potentially missing the opportunity.


1.) 26 Jul 2017 15:28:46
I think he's as good as gone. Just hope we get a decent replacement now although as NK seems unlikely, I don't know who that will be.

2.) 26 Jul 2017 16:09:09
Two cents, exactly. If we cannot get a replacement for Couts then he should not be sold this summer. Wouldn't you agree?

3.) 26 Jul 2017 16:38:12
I agree entirely B. Coutinho leaving should be entirely dependent on a replacement coming in first. My post was a bit misleading in that respect. Should have said he's as good as gone so long as we get a replacement and I hope that replacement is decent.

4.) 26 Jul 2017 16:44:50
I'd be surprised if we sold coutinho without bringing in naby keita. I'm not surprised any of this is actually happening though, it was so obvious once we targeted both Salah and keita. I think we have to keep one of coutinho or can though, selling both would be quite detrimental and we would then definitely need a top quality holding mid, with hendo being the only person capable of playing there. Stewart, Lucas and possibly can gone and with hendo being injury prone I would fear for that area of the pitch, which is a weakness anyway.



04 Jul 2017 11:25:54
Away from home for work this week sitting in hotel and have brought myself to watch ESPN press pass. They are debating the pros and cons of reducing the game to 60 minutes, and Stevie Nicol has literally just said that this would disadvantage the likes of Celtics playing against Barcelona because Celtics needs to be able to waste time to win. He was actually making a serious points.

I mean I guess it's because football is played many different ways but surely this point is the worst of all haha anyway what do others think about this? For me it seems like we pay more for football these days but we don't necessarily get any more out of the game, what do you guys think?


1.) 04 Jul 2017 11:46:38
Put into consideration the wages of players and staff. they'd be getting paid ridiculous wages at unders 12s time length. its a no on my end.

2.) 04 Jul 2017 12:24:25
This change would also mean the amateurs/ sunday league teams will only play 60 mins aswell. I don't know how much amateur football you guy watch but a lot of teams win the league or games because they have more power towards the 80th min and can still press.

60min games is a change nobody needs/ wants. I don't even know why a sports outlet talks about that but i guess its because they are american (at least i think so) and the MLS is not that nice to watch and 60 min is enough for them.

{Ed002's Note - You misunderstand. What they mean is 60 minutes of playing time.}

3.) 04 Jul 2017 12:30:58
Human, you may have misunderstood the concept. The match length would barely change (it may even be longer) . Instead of 90 minutes covering both play and stoppages it would be 60 minutes of just play. The idea is to stop time wasting.

4.) 04 Jul 2017 12:47:15
Steve Nicol not the sharpest of tools, surely a shorter game would help the likes of Celtic- less time to hold out. The longer you play a team like Barcelona the more chances they will have to score.

5.) 04 Jul 2017 12:53:57
60 mins of ball in play then? Clock stopped whenever it's dead?

6.) 04 Jul 2017 13:18:03
Yes Welch that would be my assumption. I suppose like American sports where the clock basically stops most times that the ball is dead. if it can be applied consistently then I really think I could be worth a look. Would be really interesting to see it tested at an age grade tournaments and I think for the fun of it I might sit there with a stopwatch the next time I watch a match.

7.) 04 Jul 2017 13:48:17
That's what is being proposed, Welsh.
I believe also that the half only ends when the ball is off the field of play.
It seems fairer to me.

We're white a small team Ayr. Plus the guys we have a white mentally weak I rekon. At set piece time we've typically just got the 2 CBd and maybe Can who can offer a presence in the box. The others whilst small also play small and often at the worst possible times. What do others think?

Klopp can piss off to the training field and stay there. Leave the transfers alone.

Ed001, digging for inside word on my speculative thought - I think that klopp Has been reprimanded for the vvd saga, and now regards Coutinho I'm thinking the owners have told him to butt out. So maybe his comments about the transfers being in the owners was a bit of a sulky / Passover aggressive sook about being put into line? Left field I know.!


{Ed001's Note - no, it was more about the fact that he knows Couts can not be persuaded to stay by him now.}

Co - the question was whether you would accept that kind of deal! The answer for me is yup yup and yup! laced with a little bit of hesitation tho knowing that it can be difficult to focus for a long period when you know you're dream move is coming.

Not now epic, but don't allow what you see now cloud what could be still to come. If he were to stay with us and take the #8 role on, he would develop all those skills that you say he doesn't have yet. And I don't see any reason why he wouldn't pick those up and excel at them.

Thought ManU were very good. We would be dreaming of a treble if we started the season off with a 4-0 victory. I picked manU for second, but they will be very close to the title imo.

Here's the problem: You saw that and I saw a clear foul on Suarez that wouldn't have been called if he didn't go to ground. It's subjective and there is only so much the game will be able to do to limit that.

They can't do both because they can't do both. I've always argued that hendo should be freed to play higher up the pitch. Him and can protected by Lucas was my pick for the midfield when Stevie G was hanging around weighing the team down in his last year. both are youn, heading towards their prime. They should be let loose!

Have people not noticed we don't play traditional wingers who just run up and down in straight lines whipping crosses in? We ain't a fat Sam coached team.

I know this is probably an exaggeration. But TAA was sending in some of the best corners I've seen from a red shirt in years!
