Hi Eds.
Any views from around the club in John Flanagan?
I know the loan season didn't go as planned but on the pitch he has never let anyone down and shows the heart of a lion. Will he be given a shot in pre-season?

Fitzy

{Ed025's Note - i very much doubt it fitz..


1.) 02 Jun 2017 12:42:35
No definitely, he's barely featured for Burnley. Seems a great honest lad, but his knee injuries have had killed any bit of his speed. Should move to the championship and get a few few seasons under his belt.


2.) 02 Jun 2017 13:43:21
I read an article after his breakthrough season that said on average he was taken on more per game than any other full back in the league. That's stuck with me that Maybe we got carried away on him a little. Obviously injuries have struck but maybe he just wasn't as good as we all thought.


3.) 02 Jun 2017 14:20:52
I saw him in the bar of the Radisson in Manchester after Burney had been knocked out of the cup, by Lincoln I think? He was caning the beers with Joey Barton, so if he's been hanging out with that bell end and listening to his career advice his is virtually over. Shame as I liked him when he broke through.

{Ed025's Note - comparing him to barton is a terrible thing to say about a bell end pieboy.. :)


4.) 02 Jun 2017 14:37:06
Personally think the injuries have taken too much of a toll on him, sorry to say as he was very promising.


5.) 02 Jun 2017 15:38:09
Hanging out with Barton? Damn, that's bad news. Thanks Ed and all.

If one player doesn't press or doesn't press effectively in a high press team then the whole system falls down.

Couthino brought so much to the team when in possession he had to play. But wasn't as effective when we were not in possession.

So just for banter, let me throw a question out there.

While we will of course miss what Couthino can do on the ball, is it possible that overall the Klopp system will work better without him?

What do you all think?

Fitzy

1.) 12 Jan 2018 23:10:54
good question Fitzy, I think that if we can try and win the ball back quicker, then move the ball forward faster, and we can do this, we will become a better team .


2.) 12 Jan 2018 23:26:03
He’s a massive loss, a world class player.
So I think we are obviously a weaker team without him.

Regarding your question about the system working better, i don’t think we are much of a gengenpressing team as klopps Dortmund, or in fact klopps first 6-12 months as manager here at Liverpool. Wether that was down to coutinho not pressing or klopp changing his tactics I don’t know.
But I think keita will improve our midfield massively and start moulding that spine back into the team.


3.) 13 Jan 2018 00:03:15
The stats on the sightings page tell the story. We have better results without him this season. It is clear to see when watching us that his off the ball work is abysmal. His excellent abilities at free kicks, other goals outside the box, and wonderful defence splitting passes will be missed at times, but overall the team performs better when he isn't on the pitch.


4.) 13 Jan 2018 00:30:02
Klopp probably changed the tactic slightly Liam seeing how gengenpressing can (and did) really backfire a lot worse in the prem compared to the bundesliga

But it could also be because it was taking too much a toll on the players such as Couts who wasn’t the type of player to press much.

There was an interesting piece in the Irish Times yesterday as to why Barcelona were so insistant on signing Couthino now rather than in the Summer even though he can't play in the CL and they are looking so strong in La Liga already.

The answer they said was basically (as always) follow the money and don't look further than who first leaked the transfer, Nike.

Nike have huge sponsorship deals with Barcelona and Brazil. Barcelona are huge in Brazil with a track record of having a Brazilian Star in their team. The 3rd best selling replica club shirt in Brazil is Barcelona's. Up until last Summer Neymars name was on most of these Jerseys. After he went Barcelona signed Paulhino to have a Brazilian in the side but as good a player as he is his name doesn't sell a lot of shirts. Couthino's name will sell merchandise for Nike. The world Cup is coming up this Summer and the Nike marketing machine in Brazil needs to get into gear now. Couthino in a Barcelona team will sell a lot more Barcelona Jerseys and also make him a bigger star in Brazil selling more Brazil Jersys with his name/ number.

Interesting read.

Fitzy

{Ed002's Note - The transfer was known about long before the error from Nike. And Barcelona did not buy Coutinho because of Nike.}


1.) 09 Jan 2018 10:40:29
They were just talking about the urgency ed02. Not why, rather why now.

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona wanted to bring in someone in the summer and wanted Coutinho. They then pressed for a solution by November 30 or they were going to switch their thoughts to others. Coutinho disn't want to play for Liverpool and was the overwhelming focus of attention for the media - so the club needed to cut him lose - which is what they did.}


2.) 09 Jan 2018 11:13:48
My guess for the urgency is Barcelona want to win this season's CL (as well as La Liga) . Coutinho arriving in January allows Iniesta to be rested for La Liga in order to concentrate on the CL that Coutinho can't play in.


 

 

02 Jan 2018 14:42:11
With all this talk about midfielders wanting to leave the club it was great to see Lallana back. Easy to forget he was one of our best players last season. It will be great to have his energy and pressing back in the middle for the 2nd half of the season. He's like a new signing.

Fitzy

1.) 02 Jan 2018 17:57:17
He was very good for his first game back. He certainly puts a shift in.

People were writing about the Burnley goal before being Gomez's fault I say the main problem was the OX not stopping the cross it was a very weak attempt.


2.) 02 Jan 2018 22:53:06
He’s going for the young Joe Allen look.
It doesn’t suit him.

The new CEO Peter Moore came in in June. Too late to have a real impact on the Summer Transfer window. If sorting out the mess with Southampton and securing the manager's top target before the transfer window even opens is how he does his business then signs are good for him. Well done to him and his team.

Fitzy

1.) 27 Dec 2017 19:31:08
Excellent post.


2.) 27 Dec 2017 21:49:11
Not trying to be a Debbie Downer or anything here, but Peter Moore does not deal with our transfers. May be, he was responsible for healing a broken relationship with Southampton (honestly not even sure if that kind of PR work is handled by a CEO), but in his own admission a few months ago, he clearly stated that he is not responsible for Transfers and that's purely down to Michael Edwards and Jurgen Klopp (and the Scouting teams) .


3.) 28 Dec 2017 01:21:38
The CEO of any business manages the heads of each department. He/ she is involved in everything.


 

 

11 Dec 2017 13:21:03
On a positive note. These days everyone loses their minds when we draw a game :-)

Fitzy

1.) 11 Dec 2017 13:34:19
Which is the sign of an ambitious fan! I am not happy with a draw nor I am satisfied to be an Arsenal!


2.) 11 Dec 2017 13:41:15
I see what you did there, Fitzy. Seems things are starting to change and we currently go into games expecting to win and that is down to the mentality that Klopp is instilling into the boys. There are times when it does not work BUT we know we are capable of winning games. Consistency is what we are trying to master now, slowly but surely, we'll get there.


3.) 11 Dec 2017 13:44:11
Or the sign of progress. To your point nobody is satisfied with the result, but there is a way to express yourself in a way where you don't come across as bashing the team, and people who accept the draw as a draw and are not complaining as much as you.


4.) 11 Dec 2017 14:07:21
Waqas a tean needs bashing if they deserve it. Yes it is more positive sign that we as fans are not happy with a draw. the most disapointing thing for me is firstly playing much better than our opposition and not getting the desired result and repeating that same mistake every 4-5 games. secondly fans being happy getting a point at home to a piss poor team and losing the perfect oppurtunity to gain some extra points on our rivals when they all dropped points. I feel a lot of Lfc fans have got use to the mediocracy and are happy just not to lose the game.


5.) 11 Dec 2017 14:14:20
Fitzy, the problem is that the draws are coming too often, yes we are improving, but a million miles away from winning the Premiership .


6.) 11 Dec 2017 14:31:01
Again nobody is satisfied with it! not complaining doesn't mean satisfaction, it means not complaining.


7.) 11 Dec 2017 14:33:26
we are not a million miles from a title. we are a cb and gk away from a challenge. Everyone is miles off city and I think we are the 2nd best side in the league.

I feel mane is living in salah shadow, last year he would have passed and we would have won the game easy. Klopp has learned from last season and he has rested key players, I think we will have a strong 2nd half of the season and make ucl again.


8.) 11 Dec 2017 14:43:10
i am enjoying seeing klavan play well, he looks one of the best cbs in the league atm.


9.) 11 Dec 2017 14:57:11
........deleted...............

{Ed002's Note - I am just about at the point of removing you from the web site with your persistant attacks on other posters - it needs to end immediately.}


10.) 11 Dec 2017 15:38:19
Fitzy - we have 6 draws now this season and that's just in the PL. That's the worst Everton side I have witnessed at Anfield in years and we should have breezed past them.
You just can't legislate for errors like that. I feel that if we don't find a replacement for Lovren in January then his mistakes will cost us in the PL and also the CL.
How many more mistakes will Klopp allow him to get away with before he sees what everyone else is seeing,


11.) 11 Dec 2017 19:02:41
Hi Supermane.

I think he sees it tbh. I also believe he decided last summer that what he had could get him back into the CL places. There were a few players he wanted that would bring his squad to a level of really challanging for the PL and CL. He didn't get them and so decided to wait rather than spending money on a player (s) going onto 5 year contracts that were not all that much better than he already had. Like it or not most top players don't yet see Liverpool as re established as a top European side. So we can't get them. When one comes along that could go to the top clubs but wants to come to Liverpool/ Klopp he will save his budget and wait for them (Keita, VVD) and take the flack in the mean time.
I've said it on here a few times. After 3 Summer transfer windows it will be Klopps team and all can judge him then. We can't buy a new team in a couple of windows like some of those we compete with. He must be patient and so should we, But he is getting there.

The start of the season was distrupted significantly. They are now on track. We will finish 2nd and won't fear anyone in the CL. Progress overall. YNWA.


12.) 11 Dec 2017 19:48:39
So Supermane, do you think we should ditch Mane for his mistake? Or Salah for his? They were to blame for that yesterday just as much as Lovren. Mane probably more so. I’m not Lovren’s biggest fan but he was unlucky with that yesterday. The kid’s stepped in front of him and slowed to get contact before Tom Daleying it with a triple Pike and nailed the landing!


13.) 11 Dec 2017 20:55:16
Ings
Lovren clumsily barged towards CL, raised his hands and put those hands on his back giving him an excuse to go down - an experienced international defender should know better
Call him clumsy at best incompetent at worst
Is this Lovrens first mistake
Have you forgotten Spurs
Penalty v Hoffenheim
He is a disaster waiting to happen.

Every player needs real competition for his place to acheive and maintain top performance. Clyne has that now on his return. He might surprise a few on here.

If Mignolet goes and we need a third keeper for cover, Given is looking for a club.

We broke our transfer record and set a world record for a defender 2 weeks ago and some people have already forgotten it seems.

The way Klopp jumps around the sideline sometimes I think they have a mental coach! But in a good way 😁.
