BRover, I do agree with you, there are several players in the PSG team who are arguably too good for the French league. Neymar knew the standard of football there before he signed. He and his father were more interested in money than sporting ambitions. I am sure player power will get him out of there though.

What do you mean player power? Do they not want him there?


2.) 21 May 2018 23:14:58
I have wondered about mbappe if he will ever reach his potential playing in the French league. I think one of the eds has said he may well end up at Madrid, but he needs to be tested.


3.) 22 May 2018 00:08:02
I think it was more a list of predictions than anything, definitely not a list of done deals.

HI Ed
Can I ask about Sheyi Ojo, I seem to recall he was in the list of top 5 youth players in the world. He was a player I thought was going to make it with Liverpool.
When he moved to Fulham on loan, I thought it was a great move for him. He seems to have been left behind now. Is it more than just injuries. Thanks.

Greenflash

{Ed001's Note - yes, he has not made the expected progress. The worry is that he was just physically more advanced and so looked better than he actually was. However this often happens with players who are ahead at a young age, as they do not push themselves as hard as the ones who have to catch up. It is a common problem in sports.}


1.) 06 Jul 2018 09:39:52
Such a shame. His play reminded me of John Barnes. Also the hype around him made it look like he had the potential to be (nearly) as good.

Hi ed02

Is Leon Bailey of Leverkusen still a possible target for Liverpool. With all the talk of Dembele of Barcelona apparently signing, the likes of Bailey and Pulisic are not mentioned as much lately.
Fans seem to believe Dembele is certain to join Liverpool. I am not convinced it will happen, so I'm curious if these players are realistic targets.
Sorry about the vermin who abuse you, for simply providing genuine information.
Thanks Ed02.

{Ed002's Note - No, Bailey won't be moving to Liverpool this Summer.}


1.) 05 Jun 2018 21:38:32
It sounds like Bayern are very keen on Bailey.


2.) 05 Jun 2018 21:35:42
It’s shame he won’t move to Liverpool, but what a player. Ussain bolt of football.


3.) 05 Jun 2018 22:29:58
Ed002

You just killed my hopes of bailey.

Unless you meant just not this summer cough cough.

No need to reply. Let me have that sliver of hope lol

He is the player id love liverpool to sign most of all. Think klopp would make him a monster.

I could live with him going to munich but couldn't stomach him going to city.


4.) 05 Jun 2018 23:30:05
Bailey will not be going to City. They have too many established wide players plus Mahrez there. Would be career suicide for the lad to go there. Bayern's a good option for him as Robben's long term replacement on the right wing.
As for LFC, not a hope of getting Bailey with the costs involved. Especially when the main targets (Fekir and Alisson) will be so expensive themselves.

Im under no illusions, i always knew that at best he was a very long shot he just a player i like and who would suit our system to a t. Especially a long shot with the purchase of keita fabinho and potentially fekir which in truth cannot be argued with at all. 3 excellent signings. Add a goal keeper to that and we are pretty much done in terms of spending big on anyone else.

Would be a hell of a window if fekir and oblak were to come in over the next few weeks.

The one flaw in it all would be no quality addition to the front 3 group. But getting fekir and oblak would be a hell of a comprimise to not adding to the front 3. The added goals from midfield from fekir and keita might help lighten the load.

Oblak over allison all day long for me by the way.


7.) 06 Jun 2018 08:58:49
Personally Wolverine, Alisson is the safer bet over Oblak for me. Oblak from what I have seen does not come off as a sweeper keeper. He has the great wall of Uruguay protecting him and the reason why he stands out is for his shot stopping, certainly not for his kicking or bringing the ball out of the back. Alisson all day for me. And he is gettable imo (if Roma drop the asking price a little) coz Real i feel will walk away and get Courtois as a more reasonably priced option.


8.) 07 Jun 2018 23:29:02

I understand your reasioning for allison and they are all fair points.

I just think oblak is the better keeper. And if they were roughly around the same price and the money was there after fekir id go for oblak.

His shot stopping is not just good its insane.

I don't think karius played as a sweeper keeper at all last season. I don't think there is a need for one the way liverpool play. Henderson dropped so deep when the keeper had the ball it was mostly a roll out or a very short pass.

Now maybe if we get a true sweeper keeper it would slightly tweek the way we play but at the moment there is no need for one.

Perhaps henderson drops so deep because we don't have one and is a kind of forced style due to circumstance.

I personally would rarther have a monster between the sticks that can command his area than a half monster who is good with his feet.

When allison and oblak stand side by side in the playground im going for oblak as my keeper.

Im not saying its night and day between them i just think oblak has better qualities suited to pure goalkeeping.

If we sign either keeper id be more than happy though. Like i said i understand why you would want allison instead.

Either keeper would vastly upgrade the gk position in the first 11.

Great review ED1,
I wonder how Neymars' team mates feel, when the new manager is already calling him an artist etc. Just massaging his ego even more. Maybe they can roll the red carpet out for him before every match.
Cannot help when Rivaldo is the latest telling Neymar he is too good for PSG.
Thanks.

Greenflash

{Ed001's Note - I am sure he will be out of there as fast as he can be.}


1.) 21 May 2018 19:41:31
Of course, he's too good for PSG and the French league. I mean, how can you win the Balon D'Or (which is what Neymar wants in the end) when you are playing against the likes of Lorient, Nice, Angers, Metz, Dijon and the rest of the dross in Ligue 1? That's not going to happen so while should he stay there? IMO, Neymar always wanted to go to Real (since his days at Santos cos he said so then) but then went to Barcelona cos RM never bid for him. That's why he's trying to jump ship now and join RM. Just my take.


2.) 21 May 2018 19:43:45
Wait ed, is this your way of saying Neymar to Liverpool? 😜.

{Ed001's Note - no mate, he just got out of the Argentine Salah's shadow, no way he wants to completely disappear in the shadow of the real thing....}


3.) 21 May 2018 20:06:11
Ah look we’ll take him. He can come off the bench when Bobby or mane gets knackered. I think he could develop well with salah showing him the correct way to play.


4.) 21 May 2018 20:10:46
He can go to Real Madrid for all I care. Doubt if they would have enough for Salah as well, which is a bonus.


5.) 21 May 2018 19:58:07
BRover- If I remember correctly from one of the Eds, Real Madrid did actually bid a "higher" amount for him but he opted to go Barcelona. We have later found out that in actuality Barcelona actually bid a higher amount if you factor in the under table payments to Neymar's father. But I agree with you that this entire episode of going to PSG and then moving to Madrid may have been engineered from the very beginning, to circumvent Barcelona probably vetoing any direct sale to their arch rivals. The Barcelona supporters would have never accepted it. Board elections are won and lost on such decisions.


6.) 21 May 2018 21:29:42
He’s completely motivated by money and fame, everything that is wrong with the modern game.


7.) 21 May 2018 21:51:08
Thanks for the clarification, ArAy. I do agree that he prolly always wanted to go to RM BUT I guess money spoke at the time.


8.) 21 May 2018 23:17:41
I know Neymar is quality but are Madrid not put off by the huge amount of baggage he comes with? From their point of view is think Salah is a better prospect.


9.) 21 May 2018 21:07:55
Very good Eds1 😂.

Walter, Liverpool have clearly improved, even since January the goalkeeper and defence have clearly improved. The style of football is amazing to watch.
I think we all agree Liverpool are not strong enough in midfield. But Klopp is sorting that out in the Summer. Liverpool will significantly improve again next season with top class, maybe world class midfield additions.
I remember when Brendan Rodgers was buying players, after Suarez left, with no real plan on how or where to play them.
Compare that with Klopp, who is improving the team every season, by identifying the players needed in the correct positions. Klopp does not buy players just for the sake of it. It is a great time to be a Liverpool fan. As another poster said recently, it's not that long ago that our forward line was Balotelli and borini.
All the best.

1.) 13 May 2018 12:37:48
I appreciate your comments and take them on board. I totally get what you and several others are saying.
Let me ask this though, play the best football ever seen or play decent football and win the league?

{Ed025's Note - city and to a certain extent liverpool have proven that you can do both walter, the way forward is attacking football along with good solid defensive play where the defence not only can defend but can also play football, the days of grinding out results as a means to an end is surely in the past and thank god for that....please send sam allardyce the good news mate..


2.) 13 May 2018 13:24:56
Klopp is doing a great job! The football we play is breathtaking, but instead of constantly attacking for 90 mins, we need to start managing games better. Knowing when to slow down the play and see games out is how we take the club to the next level. I know that's too much to ask with the midfielders we have, and that is why we need a couple of midfielders who are comfortable in possession and know how to take control of the midfield. Once the midfield is addressed in the summer, I'm confident we will be able to challenge next season.


3.) 13 May 2018 14:44:28
Quite honestly even if we ‘only finish fourth’ this season has been exciting, we’re in the champions league final and have truly earned our place there. Whatever will be will be but I wouldn’t change the season for anything. Ofcrouse it would be nice to win everything but that’s just not realistic. I have thoroughly enjoyed this season and we have a reason to look forward to next season too with Keita coming and probably some more players, as mentioned it wasn’t so long again that we’d cash in in players and buy quantity not quality. The owners, the manager, the team, squad, everything looks positive.


4.) 13 May 2018 17:05:02
There's a reason the Prem gets so much money, the competition.

Next season there will be six teams competing for the league, all of hume expect silverware / top four, look around the rest of Europe this is where it's at and it's tough.

Hi Ed01

That was a great article, I had forgotten all about Berahino, he was supposed to be the next big thing as a striker.
I also agree on Renato Sanchez, remember the hype over him at Euro 2016. Do you think he moved to Bayern too soon, or is he another player with an attitude problem who thought he had already made it?
Thanks.

Greenflash

{Ed001's Note - I think there are a lot of things with Sanches. He is simply not as good as people thought, joined Bayern too early and is coasting due to thinking he has made it. And thank you, really pleased you enjoyed the article.}


1.) 08 May 2018 21:23:14
I think it's a confidence thing as well. He looked a shell of a player even at a small team like Swansea.


2.) 09 May 2018 01:21:20
I worked with a lad who played for Salford in a friendly against Benfica a few years back, said Sanches was amazing that day and ran the show at 16 years old. Obviously the level of opponent was low but he said he looked special.
I also think the fact he was playing in the Portuguese euro winning side at 18,they youngest winner of the tournament ever, young player of the tournament and voted the golden boy that year shows he had great potential and was playing well.
A club like Liverpool certainly shouldn’t be taking a risk on him but there is clearly a good player in there, I would say a move back to Portugal would probably be best for him and try and rebuild his reputation and from what people are saying he needs to improve his attitude and get his hunger for the game back, he’s still only 20 and can certainly achieve a lot in the game but the last 2 seasons have been damaging for his career.

{Ed001's Note - no mate, he is another one of those he matured young and so looked better than he was. He was more physical than the rest, a Portugese Freddy Adu. As for all the international stuff, Ronaldo can drag any old crap through tournaments, as he has shown for years.}

ED025 is right, Unfortunately Gini has not hit the level we hoped he would. His game time will be greatly reduced next season. Understandable if he wants to leave for regular football elsewhere, good luck to the lad.

{Ed025's Note - yeah good luck to the guy greenflash..

I do not think Shaqiri will be another Robertson or Chamberlain who will suprise us. The difference with Shaqiri is that he has a terrible attitude which could have a negative effect on the rest of the squad.
Lazy and trouble everywhere he has played, but we expect him to change if he comes to Liverpool.

sensible, rational reply ed02. It seems as though both parties are close to an agreement. Why these fans need to go on social media and get abusive over a transfer deal is beyond me. I have never been on twitter, clearly I am missing nothing.
I will just relax with a nice cool beer and see what happens. Hardly a life or death situation.

Thanks for the update ED02.

Thanks Macca, I think most fans understand how difficult transfers can be. there are so many variables, interested to see what happens with Dembele if Greizman signs for Barcelona.

The information that both Macca and Ed02 provide on transfers is awesome. As we have learnt here, things can change very quickly regarding transfers. Fabinho was completely unexpected. Liverpool stepped in after Athletico Madrid dropped out. Neither Ed02 or Macca predicted that, which is perfectly understandable.

The problem is that while Ed02 provides info for us almost daily, Macca posts only a few times a year. Through no fault of his own some fans then treat Macca like the great messiah, who has returned. Hanging on his every word and then abusing Ed02 if he does not agree with Macca or simply has not heard the same info.

I'm on here every day looking for transfer info, but like most of us rational fans, I do not lose my temper if we don't sign the player I would like, for whatever reason. It's just a game.

All the best.

Apparently Allison has the potential to be world class, 1 season with our goalkeeping coaches and he should drop down to our usual standard of keeper ;0)

Thanks for the reply ED01, So disappointing to read about Liverpool fans being the main culprits for dishing out abuse. We really don't help ourselves.
I can understand why ED02 can be quite scathing about Liverpool fans, the latest being the vile abuse of Karius.
EDO01 and ED02 both confirming that Liverpool fans are one of the worst for abuse. My brother got me supporting LFC and always spoke about our fans being the most knowledgable and fair in the land.
What happened to that.
ALL the best.

Amazing Ed01, I, ve been here for 6 years but never realised it originally started in 2001. I know I am stating the obvious Ed, but from your position, have you noticed how fans have become progressively more abusive and critical of players and clubs etc, in recent years, or was it just as bad when you started out in 2001.
There seems to be keyboard warriors everywhere these days.

Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - it has got worse, defo worse now than it used to be. Particularly LFC fans, who used to be well known for their support and fairness towards other teams. Nowadays that is long gone.}

So the fixture compiler is conspiring against Liverpool already, we are going to be 6 points down after 2 games, it is an outrage. Our only hope is that the opposition are equally inept in the early games, so we can salvage 2 draws.

Thanks for the review Ed01, Liverpool are going to have a massively improved midfield next season. If Fabinho and Keita hit the ground running in the premier league, I honestly believe Liverpool will go close to the title. Not been able to say that in a long time.
