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?

Faithinworks

{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.}

I really want Can to stay. I think he and keita are the near future engine room of our midfield and could be for multiple years. Hendo, lallana and Milner all slowing down.

Faithinworks

1.) 17 Dec 2017 09:55:25
I agree but I don't see it happening, I think he's as good as gone already mate.


2.) 17 Dec 2017 09:56:18
A midfield of Can, Keita and Coutinho would be epic.
Ain't happening though.


3.) 17 Dec 2017 10:16:11
Great in theory but Can and Coutinho would have to get rid of the inconsistency first.


4.) 17 Dec 2017 11:36:13
clubs loose player and buys new one all the time. Can and cout are all but gone. let's focus on getting an upgrade on them than rather cringing and holding on them. Anyway I don't see anything special in Can, blows too hot and cold for me.

disappointing result, decent effort from the lads and came close a couple times.

Still don't think coutinho playing in the central midfield is any help to us. he is fantastic and can pick a pass, but too many time he plays a pass to the full backs around midfield and then he is out of the game. we need him higher up the pitch affecting the play in the attacking third. still think his best position right now is on the left wing (4-3-3) or left sided attacking midfielder (4-4-2) where he can play up near his mates.

2 away games up next. think that is for the best to be fair.

eds - convo between mates about lfc and our place in the world. my feeling is that we attract players like torres, suarez, coutinho etc who are potential "world class" players at the time, but that the culture of the club and the city isn't quite a fit for them when they catapult into the echelon of the world's best players. I'm not wanting to get too specific about this and I am not trying to speak on this like it is a negative thing, just an observation - but I feel like there are certain clubs and cities that are just a better appeal and fit for the personality / attitude / arrogance of the world's best players. you know what I mean?

Is it just money? Would we really keep our top players if we could just pay more to more of our players? I feel like there is more to it.

{Ed002's Note - players want to be playing and challenging at the highest level. Liverpool can’t offer that on a regular basis.}


1.) 04 Dec 2017 01:29:56
Ed002 said it best. If a player has the ambition to be the best and challenge for trophies on a regular basis then obviously they will be attracted to the Barcas and Madrids. Unless we can offer this on a regular basis I don't see any suprise in such issues. Its the same when we buy a player from a lower team e. g Southampton, its a chance for said player to move up.


2.) 04 Dec 2017 03:34:41
Ed002 nailed it. LFC as a club has provided a platform to potential world class players to take the next step in the development to reach the very top. Unfortunately, this is when the problems start. The best we can do is challenge for a top4 place (even that is a rare occurrence) while the likes of Suarez, Torres, Alonso, Mascherano, Sterling all wanted to win league titles and the UCL.
LFC need to start building a world class team to convince the likes of Salah to stay. A team that can compete with the best in England and Europe as well.
There is also this misconception that all players want to move to Barcelona and Real the moment they start sniffing around them. I beg to differ. Aguero, Silva, KDB still at Man city inspite of interest from the La Liga giants. Hazard is still at Chelsea even though Zidane keeps making eyes at him. De Gea still at Utd and they signed Pogba over Real. Its all about challenging at the very top. Once we do that, players will want to stay.

{Ed001's Note - it is not all about challenging, sometimes it is about money, sometimes it is about Real or Barca not making a genuine attempt to sign them, sometimes it is that they were only wanted as back ups there. There is a lot more to it than simply being challengers.}


3.) 04 Dec 2017 04:11:19
You need to win trophies to keep our best players at the club unlike top 4 Arsenal trophy! Why is it even a surprise? Raise your ambition from “ Futurr looking bright “ and “ Next year is our year “ to “ let's win the league and nothing else “. If you are satisfied with 4th and 5th place finishes then you ll loose the best players!


4.) 04 Dec 2017 04:46:35
Ed1 - to your point about money, is that an area that would "bridge the gap" for us? I guess that is the crux of my thinking - if we had equivalent money to spend, are we the kind of club in the kind of location where the worlds best players want to play?

{Ed001's Note - it really depends on the player. That is my point, there is no 'this is what a player wants', everyone is different, whether they play football or work in a bank, everyone has different wants and needs. Some players, such as Matt Le Tissier and Totti can go anywhere in the world but choose to stay with a team that is mostly winning nothing instead. It is not a lack of ambition that saw both stay, it was a different kind of ambition. Alexis Sanchez did not choose Arsenal because of trophies, for instance, he chose them because of location. Nainggolan stays with Roma because he wants to be in Rome. Other players just go where the money is. Still others, such as Milner leaving the title-challenging City to join us instead, leave for regular first team football. There is no one size fits all in any situation in life.}


5.) 04 Dec 2017 05:10:43
But this situation has become a norm especially with any quality player that joins LFC and then chooses to leave. So many factors but players like Torres, Sterling left purely to challenge for trophies. The situation where your best players can be mitigated to a certain extent by challenging at the highest level. It will not stop a player leaving 100% but it makes it easier to keep hold of our best players as they are unlikely to throw a strop and justify their actions over the club's lack of ambition.


6.) 04 Dec 2017 07:36:15
Some great comments above. We are a strange one because we look so close to being a challenging team but are yet so far away from it on other days. I think every man and his dog know where our weakness's are and if Klopp can get the next 2 windows right then next season there should be no excuse not for us to proper early challenge for the title or win it. If we fail to put in a realistic challenge and Salah, Mane and Firmino continue this form then would you blame them for having their head turned if a Real, Barca, PSG, Bayern or I hate to say it even city came In for them.

Spot on jayden23.

I may have to reserve judgement on this, but given the adjustments Klopp has made tot he team and our approach i feel like have reduced our risk of brain farts and exposing our CBs to wave after wave of pressure.
I am sure there will be challenges along the way, including at set piece time. But the performances recently have been really solid and it is noticeable to me how much more relaxed and assured our CBs have looked.

{Ed0333's Note - don’t tempt fate Faith


1.) 20 Nov 2017 02:32:57
haah true 333! i must have edited my original post, meant to also say that I fully recognize our 4 games since spurs have been against opposition vaguely resembling speed bumps. but still!

{Ed0333's Note - I always think worst case scenario and if something good happens it’s a pleasant surprise mate


2.) 20 Nov 2017 07:20:11
I think this weeks games against Sevilla and Chelsea will present bigger speed bumps mate and test our new defensive confidence. But with Migs behind them we're always a mistake a way from conceding a goal.


3.) 20 Nov 2017 07:53:51
We've looked better alright, not sure the defence is any more secure but at least they might feel a little more confident. That said, we are all but one calamity with migs in goals.


4.) 20 Nov 2017 08:36:58
Both Sevilla and Chelsea will pose difference threats, there will be more pace to deal with. These next two games will give a good indication as to how much we’ve improved .


5.) 20 Nov 2017 11:40:15
Faith - we've drawn or lost against Burnley, Newcastle and Watford in the league and Moscow and Leicester in respective cups. The quality of the opposition wasn't a factor in highlighting how poor we were defensively, so the improvement still stands clear.


6.) 20 Nov 2017 15:56:44
Hi ED033 What is your take on the GK situation? I think a lot of our issues stem from that position. A top class keeper covers over quite a few other issues.

{Ed0333's Note - I would give Mignolet a few days off, in that time move out of Anfield to a new ground and change the location of where we train without telling him I’d give the gloves to Karius on a permanent basis so he has time to become the stellar keeper he was in the Bundesliga and the reason we bought him. If that didnt work out I’d give Ward a go. If that experiment went south I’d move heaven and earth buy Salvatore Sirigu in the summer because I think he’s quite good.

doesn't need to be posted - just a message to the eds to say thanks for posting my comments again! :)

{Ed025's Note - your very welcome mate..


1.) 29 Sep 2017 14:54:52
Right now I'd go with Marcelo and Sandro but come next year the next two top dogs will be Alex Telles and Alex Grimaldo both absolute class.


2.) 29 Sep 2017 18:31:40
Christian Fuchs is another shout! Along with Marcelo.

I have been in the camp criticizing Coutinho, but I do think we're underplaying a bit how the change into central midfield can affect his game. he's not got the engine or the physique to battle away in the middle of the park and then still have gas in the tank to perform in the attacking third where he is most effective.

If Can's "heart isn't in it" he certainly has a funny way of showing that when he puts the shirt on. maybe he should take a lesson from Coutinho about how to perform when your heart isn't in it.

objectively, there are a few clubs bigger than us. is it wrong to acknowledge this? anywho, that reply must be in response to an earlier post about goretzka aye? seemed odd here haha but anyways, players don't typically move from barcelona to liverpool. just saying.

I dunno why, but it is kinda cool to have british lads out there on the pitch.

this is why we should temper our emotions throughout the season. unless the wheels have completely fallen off (ie, we do what we basically did under BR except for one fluke season, and come to this part of the season and are looking up at the europa league places) or we are as far ahead as city are now, we really should just be taking it week by week. I mean who knows? last season we started well, had a bad middle spell then finished strong. maybe we've gone through our bad patch already and we continue this form for the remainder of the season?

he doesn't have 20 prem league goals tho does he? thought that was overall. anyways, he is playing very well and is an important player for us. Be xciting to see if he can be a truly world class player and do it year after year!
