Ed's. Do you know of Klopp bringing in a new goalkeeping coach for next season?
As much as Mignolet is not the best keeper. Do you think the coaching plays a part in his form?


{Ed001's Note - I have believed the goalie coaching has been an issue since we lost Valero. We 100% need a new coach, though Achteberg is a great bloke, he is not a great, or even good, coach. I expected him to be the first replaced, but he seems to have slotted in with the rest, so I would not hold my breath on him being replaced.}

1.) 17 May 2016 11:12:56
Thanks for the reply ed.
I think all of us jointly share the shock that he is yet to be replaced.
Do you think it's a matter of Klopp having someone in mind and them not being available yet?

{Ed001's Note - no.}

2.) 17 May 2016 12:19:35
Lets not forget klopp was perfectly happy with weidenfeller who himself is not a good keeper.

3.) 17 May 2016 13:26:20
Who's the bayern goal keeping coach .?!

{Ed001's Note - Toni Tapalovic.}

4.) 17 May 2016 14:43:19
Lfcfan_03beef, Weidenfeller is a good GK, not a great GK but he's certainly better than most.

5.) 17 May 2016 17:41:23
Ed's I don't know if you have heard or seen the links with Chelsea's goalkeeping coach being approached. I saw that somewhere yesterday. can't think of his name now. Petr Cech has talked him up previously about how much he improved his game.

{Ed002's Note - Christophe Lollichon. I am not aware of Liverpool approaching him. It would obviously be an issue if they have made a direct approach.}

6.) 18 May 2016 05:56:31
Sorry Rd002, I meant to write Lollichon was mentioned in the link, not approached. Obviously I take most links with a grain of salt, just thought i'd mention what I saw as goalkeeping coaches were being spoken about.



11 Feb 2016 16:55:33
Hi Eds. Out of interest with all of the free transfer players which are/ will be available who do you think would be good for us to sign up?


{Ed001's Note - none, we need to get rid of players.}

1.) 11 Feb 2016 17:36:05
Even after the clear out which will most probably happen there is no-one you could see us trying to sign?
Rumours of Joel Matip keep coming up. Not a player to your liking Ed?

{Ed001's Note - never seen him play so how could I want us to sign him?}



20 Jan 2016 14:30:20
Any news on Matip and him signing on with us?
Tried the search engine and no new news.


{Ed002's Note - There is no decision just yet.}



15 May 2015 18:04:59
Just read a post that Kevin prince Boatang is a free agent. Would Liverpool hold any interest in him?
We can all dream of superstar signings but realistically we have to look beneath that, with the powers and money of the top four and the lure of Champions league football I'm thinking he could be a possible signing??


{Ed001's Note - no, he was booted for being a total knob, there will be very few clubs willing to take a chance on him.}

1.) 15 May 2015 21:40:20
Thank you Ed. much appreciat the response

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate, he is nothing but trouble, about as fit to play as my nan on her zimmer, except she smokes less.}

2.) 16 May 2015 03:51:37
Have to agree with you Ed, KPB would be Balotelli Mk. 2 except even worse. My friend (who's a Milan fan) told me that Boateng once got injured because he was having too much "fun" with his girlfriend! That's really all I need to know about him.

3.) 16 May 2015 22:49:37
Ed 001 - I refer you to your first comment, namely we are probably one of those clubs. Balotelli being the obvious latest example



05 May 2015 09:35:57
Have we been looking at Micah Richards this season, with Glen Johnson leaving and Manquillo not looking good enough. Richards being on a free would seem a possible signing?


{Ed001's Note - no.}

1.) 05 May 2015 10:30:43
Honestly don't get the chat with Richards . He's too cumbersome . Can't get a sniff over there and with city . Not great at all . Turns like a bus

Just want to put this out there.
Very much against the norm and I'm prepared for the barrage of abuse that will follow.
In Klopp I trust
I wish Henderson, our club captain a full and speedy recovery!
Danny Ings I cannot wait to see you perform under JK guidance.
Dejan Lovren. Congratulations on your new contract. (In Klopp I trust) and you of course
Good to read the news DS and AL are back in training.
Any associated person to Liverpool football club
You will never walk alone.


{Ed025's Note - lovren must think he has won the lottery gazza, the only reason he should be given a new contract is that when some mug of a team goes in for him that liverpool are not mugged off mate..

1.) 28 Apr 2017 17:10:24
No way you can condon lovrens new contract simply madness, I thought we were about to leave the years of mediocrity sadly I seemed to hope for too much.

2.) 28 Apr 2017 17:19:31
Maybe if fans got behind the players instead of asking them to be replaced every year would help us leave behind this mediocrity?

3.) 28 Apr 2017 17:44:58
Ya Steph let's get behind the players, the likes of Lovren who have continued to be utterly appalling but ya let's support him and accept that he's the best that we could buy. wake up.

{Ed025's Note - tell me about it sakho mate..

4.) 28 Apr 2017 18:11:03
How is moaning about it going to help the team or the player Sakho? That's my point! I agree with ed025 above, boo them, show your displeasure and disappointment when they play crap, but you have to support them if they are to progress!

5.) 28 Apr 2017 18:22:38
Renewing Lovren's contract isn't madness at all. His previous contract was set to expire in 2019, so a new deal would have to have been addressed at some point in the next 12 months, and it makes sense to do it sooner rather than later. No one wants to see him leave for free. I don't think he deserves a pay rise, but such is the way in football.

Klopp addressed all the reasons for the new deal in his press conference this morning, and I tend to agree with him.

Of course, there are better defenders out there - and I hope we sign one of them. A new contract doesn't guarantee his place in the team every week.

6.) 28 Apr 2017 18:45:04
At the end of the day its klopp's decision. Of corse moaning isn't going to change anything but people here are quick to blame players ed2 owners etc saying how our squad lacks quality when our manager is the one pulling the strings and happy rewarding mediocrity 100k per week.

Once Ron said "klopp have got blind spot for keepers" seems defenders too or maybe he needs some help as he always worked under DOF who was the one helping him when it came to recruitment contract etc.

7.) 28 Apr 2017 18:19:27
Another sarcastic reply, maybe if you made a valid point we could have a mature conversation but I've hoped for too much c'mon ed025.

{Ed025's Note - excuse me sakho but that was not sarcasm mate, i was actually agreeing with your post but make of that what you will..

8.) 28 Apr 2017 20:09:53
It's all very well saying get behind the team (and I do agree we should) but getting behind them doesn't turn a poor or average player into a good one! Sure they may have the odd good day but I don't see why we should keep pretending everything's fine and all the players are great. For all the people saying we criticise our players too much, I don't see any of their teams queuing up to take them off our hands. I know sometimes we may go over the top and be unfair in our comments, but we have to draw the line somewhere and part of my frustration is that we continue to hold on to mediocre players hoping they will one day take us to the level of the top tier teams. You simply cannot consistently win without quality (I didn't say spending lots of money) and there are some in our squad that are not quality. If you disagree let's see at the end of the season what type of teams make an offer for them.

9.) 28 Apr 2017 22:33:40
It's up to Klopp at the end of the day and spending money does not guarantee you quality.

10.) 29 Apr 2017 03:05:43
Maybe we might go out and sign a new centre back or Gomez might get his chance next season. But with Lovern getting a new contract it keeps him happy and it becomes harder for him to get an easy move away if he doesn't like being stuck on the bench or just being used for cups games.

11.) 29 Apr 2017 06:48:52
The whole just shut up and get behind the team that is how they will improve argument is massively oversimplistic. Some players are impacted by this kind of site, but that cuts both ways. Some may get disheartened (but then far more you will hear players who that happens to quoting the response they got at matches) . Some however may take the view they'll prove us wrong. A lot depends upon their character and whether this is just a job etc. Equally just blindly supporting without constructuve criticism creates the view the fan base will accept any pile of excrement for a performance. I agree there has to be a balance and what is said should be constructive but saying all is rosey in the garden isn't going to improve the players, the coaches or the idea of what the fans and the club expect from them. Saying all isn't well may not change things but it is more realistic against the club owners and manger's stated ambitions and ultimately they are the audience as much as the players.

12.) 29 Apr 2017 09:50:02
Razor, it is very possible to disagree with a player getting a new contract and still getting behind the team during games. Two things can be right at the same time.

Spot on, Ron. VVD for example, plays in a defensive system that has two DM's protecting him so he is rarely exposed. No one knows how he will fare here where that protection will not be as strong. As Ed01 says, quality CB's like, GK's, are hard to find and those clubs who have them are NOT going to sell to you so might as well groom and coach up the ones you have like Lovren and Gomez hoping they can step up. I am interested in seeing how Gomez does next season.

13.) 29 Apr 2017 10:02:54
Ron, I have to disagree with you there. Spending money has made huge differences to Chelsea, Manchester City and Utd. Before Abromavich when was the last time Chelsea won the league? City hadn't won a trophy for almost 45 years before the Arabs came in, and Utd had been the richest club in the league for years and still spend bigger than most teams. Also the additional cash being pumped into football by Sky and BT have made all clubs richer which is why the PL is such a difficult league now. Spending money might not guarantee you quality, but spending huge amounts usually does.

14.) 29 apr 2017 14:39:26
kbl, i agree. we have spent money too under fsg but in the wrong way and on the wrong players, overall. money may not guarantee you trophies but money spent stupidly will definitely guarantee you nothing.



02 Apr 2017 10:33:57
Today I am fighting in a charity boxing match in aid of Cancer research. For the last 8 weeks I have been putting in the hours to get fighting fit.

hoping that some of my Liverpool family could spare any amount and make a donation. If you do please take my appreciation now as I'm going to be extremely busy until after the fight.




12 Feb 2017 15:32:05
Afternoon Ed.
Is there any news on what will happen with Danny Ings when he returns. Will he be given the length of time to recover and push his way into first team contention or will he be be transfer listed?

I like him a lot and I hope he does get given the chance. I do think he has all the attributes to succeed under Klopp

Thanks Ed.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool will not be looking to sell him.}

1.) 12 Feb 2017 16:21:03
I think Ings will be class for us, he's simply been unlucky, poor bugger deserves a chance more then anyone. Looking forward to seeing him play again.

2.) 12 Feb 2017 17:36:09
It's been that long since he had an injury free run that I can't remember his style of play! Is he more of a through the middle or from the wing? Or can he play in all 3 of our front positions?

3.) 13 Feb 2017 09:58:55
Zed, from what i remember he was more of a through the middle striker, at least from the games I have seen him in. He has huge workrate similiar to firmino, I am not sure how he would fit into our front 3 though, he seems more of an out and out striker to me but he does have good movement so klopp may be able to work with him on it. He does have the drive and energy to be good for our style. He has had horrendous injuries since he joined and its going to be a long road to full fitness for him, who knows if he will recover properly, let's hope so.



11 Jan 2017 06:08:07
Morning all.

Ed's. why is it that through all of the years we haven't had any youth centre backs come through and break into the 1st team. Yes I know Jamie Carragher did play there but he dropped back there from a centre midfield position and also over from full back initially.

All of these years and I can't remember a centre back coming through?

Just wondering if you could shed some light on it?



{Ed001's Note - because it is the position that takes the most time and effort to develop. Teams always give up on the youth players before they are mature enough to make that position their own.}

1.) 11 Jan 2017 07:07:24
And to be fair, it'd have to be a fairly exceptional youth talent for a "top club" to stick with them and compete for honours ye?

{Ed001's Note - even then they don't very often. It is usually purely because of a lack of funds that young players get developed.}

2.) 11 Jan 2017 07:32:31
Patience and money. Top clubs have no patience as they constantly challenge for the title and would want to field the best possible readymade team every year. Hence they overlook youngsters and buy proven players.
Clubs such as Southampton and Everton bring their youngsters as they have no money in the first place and are ok with any place in the top half of the table.

Everton has bought a lot of youngsters through which will stop once they start to splash the cash!

{Ed001's Note - a lot? Everton have done no such thing. They bought Stones, Holgate, Coleman etc, the only ones they have brought through were Rodwell and Barkley in recent years, unless I am missing something?}

3.) 11 Jan 2017 07:41:46
Davies ed?

{Ed001's Note - how has he come through? He is just a kid and has no more come through than say Woodburn. Far too early to judge, which is the exact same problem that stops so many kids from making it. Suso, for instance, was judged and released far too early, Ilori is another. They might never have made it, but we gave them no chance of ever doing so. I hope Klopp will be different, but it will be a long time before we know for sure that he is.}

4.) 11 Jan 2017 08:18:18
Will Everton show patience with him is a different argument. I just gave you a name who made an appearance recently. The old Everton would have certainly brought him better but not anymore as they are splashing cash in search of European football.

{Ed001's Note - seriously? You do not even understand your own points! You said they brought through lots, then you can not even name any! Instead you mention a lad who has made 'an appearance recently', which is not bringing them through at all, otherwise Liverpool have a huge list of players such as Adam Morgan. Please Harry stop and think, then you might realise you are just making no sense here at all. You just need to accept you were wrong about Everton, and that it was a big gripe of their fans under Moyes, that he did not bring through youth.}

5.) 11 Jan 2017 08:42:54
I have laid the reason Y top clubs overlook youngsters for proven players and clubs such as Everton and Southampton ( They are examples who finishes just anywhere inside top 10 ) depend on their academy more than anyone.

{Ed001's Note - why are you arguing the point on this? Saints yes, but they are an exception. Everton have certainly not done this, so why do you keep on about it? Give it up. This is done, you were wrong, end of. There is nothing more to be gained with this. Topic closed. There is a reason why you can't come up with more examples - they do not exist. The Premier League clubs as a whole buy rather than develop talent. Southampton are the notable exception. Even the likes of Bournemouth and Burnley have no real youth development to point to, let alone Everton.}

6.) 11 Jan 2017 09:02:04
Fair enough Ed1. Not Everton!

7.) 11 Jan 2017 09:10:50
Ed is it fair to say Spurs are quite good at it? In recent years I can think of Kane, Mason, Carroll, Carter-Vickers, Winks etc.

I don't know how many of them were signed from other academies though.

8.) 11 Jan 2017 11:16:39
Every post you argue a different point to the last, and Ed001 might have just taken up smoking after trying to deal with that ha

9.) 11 Jan 2017 12:32:32
MK Scouser - of that lot, only Kane can be said to have come through (and even that was only because he got given some throw-away games in the Europa League and made himself impossible to drop, the summer before they were trying to sell him! ) . Mason never established himself as a real option and eventually left while it is far too early to tell for the rest of them. Ponch is a good manager for it though

10.) 11 Jan 2017 13:33:04
As Ed said, only the Saints can be commended for bringing through youth players from their academy setup as they are part of the fist team squad, not just an appearance here and there and disappear from circulation. hopefully, Klopp can do that with us cos we have some talented players as well. Will they all make it? No. But they should be given every chance and not given up on for no reason. BTW, nice discussion btw Harry and Ed as usual. That was a hoot.



30 Dec 2016 06:07:18
All this talk of signing someone else to replace Mane while he's away.

So if Henderson or Klavan or even Mingolet gets sent off and incurs a 3 game ban would you want us to go and sign a replacement just because they have been suspended?


1.) 30 Dec 2016 08:05:50
Some people probably would.

2.) 30 Dec 2016 14:15:40
Some people just want to see new players come in, with out the slightest idea of how the player will fair, impact the rhythm of the team or the time he will need to adapt. It`s only in England you see this train of thought. Team is going through a rough couple of games? Make a signing just "to make a statement of intent", what ever the French that means.

3.) 30 Dec 2016 15:59:28
I don't believe the club is stupid enough to buy a player for 4 weeks. The cub always look out for players which will improve the team and rightly so. If someone do come in, it would be for the long term.
The club looking at a winger is no secret.

4.) 30 Dec 2016 18:40:09
Its not a three game ban, its an extra tournament during a league campaign. We don't know what form he'll come back in, or how fatigued and what knocks he may pick up. All that plus we are short on a wide forward to begin with.

{Ed001's Note - that's why we need to develop a couple of the youngsters now, while we have the chance, rather than keep having to buy in the future.}

5.) 30 Dec 2016 22:27:16
Haych. All players will have dips in form. That's why squads are assembled not just first team 11's.

Like Ed said. We have so much quality in the youth set up. Let's start using it.

Origi is looking good.
Would be great if Ings does stay and to see what Klopp can do with him after seeing the transformation in Origi.
I like Ings myself. Adds something different

Thanks for the reply.

When is the Spain move going ahead?

Ed. do you rate Ings, do you think he'll make it (regular starter or regular bench) this season?


{Ed001's Note - I like him, he has won me over. However, it is difficult to see him make it with us, not with Origi looking so good. His only real hope is if Sturridge is moved on.}

I got about 3 mins in.
So you have a nervous speaker talking who presumably has had this info thrown at him by experts who have never managed the game in any form. Everyone can read stats and be assumptuios.
One of his stats was Mignolet having the ball at his feet over the course of a season but then he waists to talk about goals scored from our forwards.
When will people realise that it's never purely a striker that will win the league. Every form of play has to be consistent.
Goalkeepers, defensive unit to holding midfielders to goal scoring goal midfielders to strikers.
Every unit has to chip in. If it's not the strikers scoring it had to be the support players.
The defensive midfielders have to supportive of the defenders. The defenders have to be capable of keeping leads.
It's a complete ream game. Not just the forwards. We have been there and done that. Didn't work.

I haven't seen the emails.
I as much as the next fan love the club and want nothing for the best for us.
In FSG purchasing the club. They done what any business would do. They got it for the cheapest possible price and they're expanding the LFC brand for a better financial income.

Hello Ed. Been a while mate.
Just to elaborate on your comment about Milner being back up option only. Do you see him playing a central midfield role for us next season.
On the wages he is on, i for one wouldn't want him sitting on the bench waiting to get a appearance in cup matches like Moreno. I know there is a possibility of Champions league football and a bigger squad for extra games.
I just haven't seen enough in James Milner as a central midfielder to push anyone else out and take a place as his own.

Hope your well buddy
