Anything on Tello in the upcoming window ? Will he be going back to Barca or do we have a chance ?

He has been doing well in Portugal, and is still young. Macca wrote last year about the strong interest from us, but it all disappeared. Did he flatly refuse to join us or was there other factors ?


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool moved on - it is not going happen. Tello will look to stay at Porto.}

Would love us in a simple 3-5-2 setup, with old fashioned speedy wingers, that can defend and attack.

2 Centre backs (take your pick), supported by a Libero in defence. This has to be somebody with experience to organise a defence, but just maybe it would be good to see Illori develop in such a role.

A defensive ball controlling midfielder in Rossiter(even Allen would flourish in such a role), with the 2 wingers in maybe Clyne and Moreno. and two forward thinking defensive hard working midfielders (Henderson/ Lalana ?/ Milner/ Firminho ?/ Coutinho or ?

2 man up front. As an old timer in the LFC fan base, I do have a pendant for the big & small set up, and would love to see Coutinho up there with Benteke (if he is not used in midfield) or a player like Ibe with a fit Sturridge. Plenty of offensive options :-)


1.) 16 Sep 2015 23:05:48
3-5-2 relies on wing backs to work effectively as opposed to straightforward wingers.

2.) 16 Sep 2015 23:07:49
We don't have 2 good centre backs never mind three. Plus clyne and Gomez don't deserve to be dropped, although Gomez could be one of the three. We just need a good back four, not try and change every week. Plus even if clyne and moreno are wing backs, our best players are attacking, in the sense of hendo Coutinho firmino benteke and sturridge and they won't all for in that system

3.) 17 Sep 2015 01:49:57
They won't all fit in an sensible system

4.) 17 Sep 2015 05:59:32
No matter how many defenders you add, we would continue to concede goals.

5.) 17 Sep 2015 06:06:38
3-5-2 will not happen. You are simply taking out one attacker from the game and adding another defender.
Moreover BR has 5 CM and 3 ACM with them, All big money players and assured positions and game time.

How would you accommodate them?

6.) 17 Sep 2015 08:49:43
So we are up to 8 assured players now Hazza?



24 Aug 2015 22:48:04
Was wondering about our set up today. Actually I thought we for once kept our shape through most of the game, which in turn freed up the positive offensive forces at our disposal.

Is this the new coaching staff having an influence ?




10 Aug 2015 21:57:18
John Stone ?
We keep hearing that Chelsea or Manchester want's him, so maybe he would be ready to leave our blue nosed cousins.
However why are we not in the market for him. Fits all the bills - young strong and talented. And we have historicaly been pretty good with born Everton supporters in our side ;-)


1.) 10 Aug 2015 22:24:37
1/ he is average

2/ we have billions of defenders

2.) 10 Aug 2015 22:27:26

The "we're overrun with Centre Backs" brigade will tell you that we already have too many.

But if you believe that argument we should have stuck with Lambo and Balotellli.

3.) 10 Aug 2015 22:46:40
Is he even a blue?

4.) 10 Aug 2015 23:29:33
We need more cover at centre back

5.) 10 Aug 2015 23:47:34
Yea that's right Ron. Sakho, Gomez, Ilori, Lovren, Toure, Skrtel. No where near enough numbers

6.) 10 Aug 2015 23:54:14
We have six cbs or is that not enuff cover for you, Ron?

7.) 11 Aug 2015 06:49:50
Definitely a few bites there lol

Hi Eds

I was wondering when Liverpool (as other clubs are attempting) is setting up proper academys in the other federations or countries, will they then be able to be wieved as "home grown" players in the future ?


{Ed002's Note - No. Home grown relates to England and Wales for the likes of Liverpool.}

1.) 03 Jul 2015 10:13:42
To be cynical, could we then "import" the talents from an LFC Academy abroad, on some sort of scholar ship ?

I believe Barcalona did something similar, but didn't have all their paperwork in order.

Not sure if I have understood the rules right, but it seems to me, the term "Homegrown' refers to a player that has been schooled at an Academy in the UK, not his pasboard ? Therefore players from Africa, Asia, South America should be available under such a set up ?

{Ed002's Note - No you can't do that - this is not an opportunity for Liverpool to cheat the rules.}



09 Jun 2015 21:15:25
From a nostagic POW it was almost always in the lower leagues LFC found their great strikers, before anybody else. (I guess besides Dalglish). Not the "top top" name strikers, with most, in my opinion, becoming flops once they make their big money move. And off course that's not just with us. (Ask down in London, how their "top european strikers have fared).

Is there anybody we should be keeping an eye on ? or is todays bigger squads ruining that statistic ?


1.) 09 Jun 2015 22:17:25
Benik Afobe and William Grigg both impressed me last season. Patrick Bamford (although I think he was on loan from a Premier League team)

Troy Deeney is also a good striker But he's not as young as the 3 above and technically will be a Premier League player soon. My money is on him to score 15+ goals for Watford next season. A very under rated and powerful striker who just scores goals for fun. I see no reason why he won't make the step up but for every Charlie Austin there is a Ricardo Vaz Te. So he may buckle under the pressure.

2.) 09 Jun 2015 22:27:00
Do any of the Ed's have any hidden info ? :-)

3.) 09 Jun 2015 22:28:21
Looking back LFC very rarely buy world class talent, we seem to pick guys up at the right time and they become world beaters.

Likes of vietto, but obviously not going to happen.
I like salmon Rondon but i don't know much about him.

just don't see a higuain, cavani type coming in.

Think maybe a hulk, walcott, falcao older with maybe with a point to prove.

4.) 09 Jun 2015 22:29:28
Yarmelenko is another.

5.) 09 Jun 2015 22:48:00
Patrick Bamford was on loan at Boro from Chelsea.

6.) 10 Jun 2015 00:07:16
65 Hulk signed a new deal and Falcao I can't see getting over his injuries to be the player he once was. shame though. Also wouldn't mind Theo Walcott.

7.) 10 Jun 2015 02:43:04
Maybe take off the rose-tinted spectacles and come and join us in 2015 rather than reliving past glories of 30+ years ago that have no relevance to football today? As a club we are by far the worst for harking on about the past - can we not just do what most other clubs do and focus on the present?

8.) 10 Jun 2015 08:50:09
Scouting has improved hugely since the 80s. Now, a potential Dalglish would be picked up as a teen by a big club, hence it is very difficult to pick up the most talented players in lower league football as the good ones there are late developers.

We need stop looking at the past and do things professionally as it is done everywhere else in the PL.

9.) 10 Jun 2015 13:35:41
AG, scouting networks may have gotten larger, casting a wider international net, and more sophisticated.
But, in Liverpool's case, we are probably much less effective than in the 80's.
We had a fantastic scouting set up, from Shankly's time on, led by Geoff Twentyman.
You do know that Dalglish came to Liverpool as a 16 year old, watched the famous Charity Shield game at Goodison when the World Cup was on display in 1966 ?

Ed2: Another player who don't want to be there (Coutinho I presume you refer too) . Who or how many else are we talking about?


{Ed002's Note - There are players at Liverpool who are not happy with their lot and those looking to see what the future will hold elsewhere. Fundamentally it is no different from other clubs.}

Seem to remember we did Excactly the same to a young Michael Laudrup many years ago.
Don't blame FSG. It's (unfortunatly) nothing new.

Stevie Nicol back in the shirt.

Best left back I remember :-)

He is a technical good player, but not sure if he is ready for PL. But if we had the option I would take him. Having Him and Can bossing the midfield over the next 8 years would be tops.

I agree Ed1
But wasn't he on loan from Chelsea?


{Ed001's Note - he was, yes, but he was unsure of his place at Chelsea for this season initially and there was a chance of convincing him to move for the prospect of certain football.}

Loan deals in the same tournament should be gone. You are either a player for that team or not. Imagine Barcelona loaning out Messi type players to teams playing RM, but then severely weakend against themselves.
Not fair.

If Lucas played in a Libero position based on 3-5-2 then yeah I could see him there.

Loved Kevin as a player. Even when he came back and played for Southampton, he was fantastic, partnering with Channon and Ball.
His "attack" mindset as a manager, should have been a blueprint on how football should be played. FA/ UEFA/ FIFA should have amended the rules to encourage that type of play. (Extra league point for every 5 goals scored? )

Sounds like I'm in the same boat age wise ;-). Without weighing in about the best side (i'm internally conflicted on that matter lol), i'm with Red Lenin about entertainment value of the 87/88 side. Unbelievable.

The 78/79 side was though more of a physically stronger side, that could also grind out a result, even when the champagne football didn't happen. Especially away from Anfield.
