regards Jorginho - is that a rumour that has been verified?

Regards any type of player coming in to play that role in midfield. ACE! and honestly, I don't think it would matter who that player is. Anyone who is a little bit more tactically aware and can pass a decent ball will do wonders for the balance of our midfield allowing Hendo, Keita, gini etc to be the legs in the midfield. so whoever that player is, get him in! heck, bring lucas back to play that role!


1.) 27 Feb 2018 12:22:39
Faithinworks, we are looking to move forward with our progression towards trophies, bringing Lucas back in a starting role will hinder that. I trust whoever Klopp picks for midfield will be a great choice, his track record for signings is pretty impressive, he seems to know the exact type of player that suits his system!



19 Apr 2017 09:56:36
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.}

Would have been nice to play a team from the continent, ah well. Should be cracking tie. Who scores most away goals wins!?




07 Mar 2018 22:14:30
interested in what people think about the away goals rule? is there a better alternative?

for me it seems crazy that a 0-0 and 1-1 score over two legs gives the advantage to the team who scored the away goal. seemed pretty fair over the 2 games right?

but, are there other viable options out there to separate teams rather than just go into extra-time?


1.) 07 Mar 2018 22:29:11
I think the away goal should stop when extra time kicks in.

2.) 07 Mar 2018 22:40:45
Extra time means more injuries for teams at the money end of the season. Football is about scoring goals, I think the away goals rule is cool. It's interesting. Also, what viable options are there? Golden goals also seems a little harsh.

3.) 07 Mar 2018 23:08:36
Nothing amatter with the away goal rule you have 180 minutes of football to play and to win the game out right. It's also the same for every team and knowing to everybody, like a say teams have 180 minutes of football to win the game if they don't like the away goal rule but personally a don't think many people will or would complain about the away goal rule.

4.) 07 Mar 2018 23:22:03
Is it not to encourage teams to play away from home, rather than just park the bus and win at home?

5.) 08 Mar 2018 00:04:14
Not a fan of away goal rule at all. Can understand the logic, to try get teams to push for a goal. Rather than sit in play Jose the bus driver away from home. But never sits right with me a team going out having not lost either game over the two legs.

6.) 08 Mar 2018 02:00:27
really just trying to drum up ideas. I do see the value in the away goals rule. again just pointing out that it doesn't necessarily mean that the best team over two legs goes through. does scoring an away goal demonstrably declare one team as better than the other? or is it just the best option for a tie breaker we have? I don't know what the answer is tbh!

I do like the drama, but like coco pointed out, on the rare occasions it happens it does seem a bit unfair that the away goals can seperate two teams when both games are a draw! is that justifiable means to change the system? probably not!

7.) 08 Mar 2018 03:45:20
Rock, paper, scissors - no better decider than that.

8.) 08 Mar 2018 12:28:25
I think away goals is fine.

9.) 08 Mar 2018 12:22:36
All sides are aware of the rule so I see no issue with it - I think it makes it more exciting and dramatic as one away goal can really flip a tie on its head, I think that adds to the theatre and spectacle. Removing it would take away some of that and certainly play into the hands of the more negatively inclined managers - as a previous poster said they should not be counted in extra time but that's it.

10.) 08 Mar 2018 15:54:57
Agreed Seano, well put mate.



05 Mar 2018 22:33:17
ed1, are you able to share more about Julian Ward's role at the club as Loan pathways Manager?
never heard of him, but interested in whether this is a new or developing role that the club are putting efforts into for our younger players on loan?


{Ed001's Note - basically he is responsible for making sure the right decisions are made about where they go on loan, how long for and to keep an eye on them while on loan. It is a new role for the club, finally someone overseeing it to try and make sure the right choices are made.}

1.) 06 Mar 2018 08:26:10
excellent, was hoping it was something to the effect. cool thanks for the info. hopefully it works well.

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed.}

2.) 06 Mar 2018 16:24:48
They could of asked me! :)



28 Feb 2018 09:52:32
Ed2, are the UEFA changes to CL qualification anything to do with steps towards countering a breakaway?


{Ed002's Note - No, these changes have been decided for a couple of years. There are two/three counter-proposals to the pan-European breakaway that have partially been backed by UEFA to try and save their own skin. The first proposal is to rename and change the format of the UEFA Champions League to make it an elite closed-shop pan-European league with a fixed number of teams – and these would be the same teams every year and be based on past winners of the Champions League and European Cup and a few (not specified) more. It would then require the restructuring of the Europa League and the possible introduction of a lower-tier European competition again. Although they have yet to flesh out the detail and there is now a major concern that the impetus for this is not coming from Europe, although one major Football Association has given their support and discussions have also been held with the leading clubs from England (Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal). The American backer, Stephen Ross of the Miami Dolphins, has on several occasions requested a meeting with an extant group of sides considering the pan-European breakaway to discuss his proposals. They have yet to respond but having identified the source of much of the funding (and that raising a concern) will wish to discuss it between themselves first. This has dragged on for a year or more and nothing has happened - and I doubt it wil.

However, UEFA are now considering a variant proposal that would see some places in the CL fixed (probably to previous winners) and then see it supplemented by Champions and second place sides each season. This complicates matters again as it means the re-introduction of a third competition or the significant restructuring of the EL. The plan being put to clubs is a summer/preseason tournament that will evolve in to a parallel league, and of course eventually in to a complete breakaway for these clubs. As a first step to all of this, UEFA have negotiated minor changes that will see the four entrants from England, Germany, Spain and Italy enter the existing Champions League group stages without any qualification beyond their National League position (so no entry to qualifying rounds). This has been agreed by the European Club Association but UEFA did not want to discuss it with the separate group of “elite” sides discussing the Pan European League (and that “elite” group includes three English sides) as they are aware they will get no more than a shrug and no long-term support - and that is where we are now.

The second major counter proposal is a Chinese proposal from the Dalian Wanda Group proposes to open up the lucrative Chinese and Far Eastern media markets by extending the league to include Chinese and South American clubs. This has yet to be discussed by the "elite" sides as a group although the proposals have been presented to a number of them already on an individual basis. The proposals are very broad-based and lack detail - their selling point is significant additional income for the "elite". The general feeling from informal discussions over cocktails is that the "elite" would not want it on a league basis but could be open to including other sides in a some sort of expanded World Club competition.}

Thanks for the in depth reply.

2.) 28 Feb 2018 12:07:02
I was hoping for a slightly more detailed answer 😉.

3.) 28 Feb 2018 13:36:24
Regarding CL this year, if Madrid finish fourth, can a fourth places team in England play them in the qualifiers? Or is it seeded draws?

{Ed002's Note - There won't be English sides in the qualifiers.}

4.) 28 Feb 2018 17:24:47
There's the amazing insight again lads. Top, top site.

I hate the idea of money people on the other side of the world trying to restructure our beautiful game. For their own ends I would Imagine. I HATE this idea.

I do like the idea of European competitions for the smaller teams. Perhaps more teams could go into the europa league. Say from 5th to 10th. I would like a European tournament for the top 3/ 4 side in the championship although this would mean a lot more games for newly promoted teams to the pl, would still be interesting and give football fans a chance to see all levels of European football. Ed advised me that genk had decent scouting system, it would be cool to see these more obscure teams on a more regular basis. I'm not sure if genk were ucl or europa league but do you get my drift?

5.) 28 Feb 2018 15:52:14
What a reply, cheers Ed2.

6.) 28 Feb 2018 21:57:58
mm brilliant reply thank you ed2 :)

My 2cents worth from city vs wigan - the FA should focus on 3 areas

1-players surrounding ref. Its an ugly look to the game, does nothing for any of FIFAs respect policy whatever that is. On pitch or retrospective punishment should be applicable and actually followed thru for clubs and players to learn. Only captain should talk to the ref imo

2-half-time altercation. That is an area within reasonable bounds you would expect better from players and coaches

3-pitch invasion and crowd control in general. If ya reversed a result or docked teams points i wonder if that would curb fan behaviour. This is included for all types of derogatory abuse

In terms of the aguero incident, I thinkbthe FA have done the right thing to remind aguero of his responsibilities. But recognize that that is a highly charged moment with crazy fans on the pitch anything could have happened. Players aren't paid to defend themselves against fans are they? that's what security are for. Given the circumstances and that the fan allegedly spat at him, I think its fair that the fan got a push / punch / handbag in return.


1.) 20 Feb 2018 18:55:25
Completely agree faithinworks. Spot on mate.

2.) 20 Feb 2018 20:13:43
It has been reported that Aguero would face no charges for yesterday’s action from FA.

3.) 20 Feb 2018 21:24:54
Spot on, Faithworks. Baby Driver, that news is a disgrace and sets a VERY dangerous precedent cos right now, it is okay for a player to assault a fan on the pitch just cos the fan looked at him funny. So much for being the bastions of morality, these spineless and gutless FA dinosaurs.

4.) 20 Feb 2018 22:14:08
I think he got more than just a funny look BRover and it was just a push back from what I saw, it's not like it was a kung fu kick like a certain UTD player did.

We'll be doing well if we can recruit a team full of humble superstars.

as we have progressed under Klopp, and as we cast certain demons aside, there is always going to be a risk that some of our bad habits rear their ugly head from time to time. of note from the weekend for me were

- lack of communication between defenders
- lack of on-field leadership to react to certain situations
- back line out of sync of each other
- midfielder and defensive line out of sync and not supporting each other

these are things that we've managed to do much better of recent weeks and then boom the weekend happened. We operate well when things are working well (no surprises there right!? ), but the ongoing challenge is being able to do the right things and keep good habits when under pressure. The weekend was a snapshot example of some development we still need to make in that area. I have every faith that we will do better most of the time, anbd just hope that we can reach that level of consistency to the point where it becomes so rare that when it does happen it is a surprise!

also my other thought about the above is that in the past when we've left gaps in midfield and our CBs, that from that point on everyone is scrambling. Haven't seen that in us for a few weeks but it was all there in 2 moments vs manU. find it hard to blame anyone after the fact and really think that the focus should be at the origin of the play, cos its from that point it becomes scrambled eggs. karius is the last man in that process, so there is a lot for him to save! have ya ever cracked an eggs and the tried to catch all the contents of it without letting any hit the floor? ye tough ask aye!? so you know, crack the damn egg over the pan instead! that's my analogy anyways!

is there a max to the number of years you can loan a player? obviously not longer than his contract, but say he has 4 years left, can we loan him out for 3 years to the same club?


{Ed002's Note - You can give a loan which is renewable if everyone agrees. Else two years.}

never seen ryan play. he is only a kid right! but interested in the opinion of those who have watched him. does he show glimpses in his game of being positional / tactically flexible for our front 3?

It may seem an odd question to ask, but for the same reason that I don't see moreno ever being an option in the front 3 other than an end of game time-wasting sub, I would assume that ryan would have to give more than be fast and left-footed to squeeze himself into our forward line.

am very aware that he is young and will develop etc. just interested in what people have seen.

the team have done a great job. Do we really need to give all the credit in one direction? Klopp has openly said himself what happened, he's been frank about it and it worked out. isn't that a good thing from Klopp? and scouts obviously did their job. so full credit to the team!

Personally, I can see harry wilson looking for a permanent move elsewhere if he goes on loan again next season. Obviously don't know the lad, so others may be able to comment better. Does he have that determination to graft away and keep preparing himself for another year or two as a pathway to being first team regular for us? Feel like its next year or bust in terms of his liverpool career.

love salah, am intrigued to see if he can keep this up for years like ronaldo and messi.
bit unfortunate, but that aware is a bit of a boys' club in that it seems the career pedigree is is taken into account on a yearly basis. then again messi and ronaldo have been dominating for a long time!

anyways, whilst I'd love any liverpool player to win a gong, I just wanna see them do it again and again and again!

I like what Mourinho said. Klopp spoke similarly in his first year and a half, just delivered it with more charisma.

Cant find direct quotes but I can remember Klopp making reference to needing new players (suggesting he inherited some duds), encouraged fans to support the team and fight with them to the final whistle (criticize atmosphere and fan support), evidenced his suitability to rebuild liverpool based on his previous success and experience (telling everyone he has done this beefore and will do it again), encouraged media and fans to give him and his players time to build their project (criticizing media criticisms) etc etc

This is more about the media and for me it was a fun liste. Rafa's fact rant to me was way worse than this. In amongst all of manUs atruggles they've won a major european trophy and have significantly improved their league position. Like us, the steady improvements are being overshadowed by the few black marka on the record. Add that to the way he talks to media then obviously everything is there for media and public backlash.
