Eds, Real AG or anyone else that may know, what is the situation with Brad Smith. Is he a Liverpool player or not? I thought he had left but I read in another thread he is still a Liverpool player but in contract dispute. Be interested to know what the dispute is and whether it is something that can be resolved with Klopp now in charge and he may be given a chance to impress or if it is essentially too late for that and the bridges have been burnt.

Higgins

{Ed001's Note - he is still registered to Liverpool. He was initially frozen out after refusing a new contract.}


1.) 11 Nov 2015 10:20:17
Thanks Ed001. Are there any other young LB at the club that could be considered for first team action? I am totally out of the loop since LFC TV stopped being free.

{Ed001's Note - from what I have been told, no, left back and centre back are the two areas most lacking in the near future. Academy wise I mean.}


2.) 11 Nov 2015 12:35:49
You surprise me Ed001. I thought Cleary, Randall and Brewitt were all highly thought if - especially Cleary.

{Ed001's Note - not close to the first team though mate, they are a couple of years away. I was talking about players being ready to step in now.}


3.) 11 Nov 2015 12:41:55
Brad Smith's is a club matter I think. Regardless of who the manager is, the decision has been made to not play him. I assume he or his agent has really pissed of the club. The same goes for Enrique.

As for left backs, Joe Maguire is the natural choice, but even when he was at U18s and making a step upto the U21s competition free, he just didn't look that particularly convincing. He has bulked up over the summer, and I haven't seen any U21s matches this season, but up to last season, there was nothing to suggest he was ready, and was looked upon as one of the weakest players on the pitch. Sorry I have been brutal here.


4.) 12 Nov 2015 01:55:26
I was under the assumption Lloyd Jones was before his loan, training with the first team and somewhat close when Rodgers was manager? And in all fairness we've had a few centre backs from our youth team play in the first team, the problem was Rodgers put Wisdom and Kelly at RB and they're now stuck there.

{Ed001's Note - your assumptions are all wrong. Lloyd Jones had been close but then a closer look said he needed first team football as he was nowhere near ready for us, hence the loan. Rodgers was not responsible for putting either Wisdom or Kelly at right back.}

I read an article regarding David Wagner being appointed Huddersfield boss and how this might work out well for Liverpool in terms of loaning players out to them etc. Is this the media putting 2+2 together and getting 5 or is there some truth to this?

Reports advising that Ings has a "clean" tear of acl so could be back sooner. Anyone know about Gomez's injury and have an update?

Higgins

 

 

19 Jan 2015 08:51:18
Any truth in the rumours we have been looking at Teddy Bishop? BBC have us as favourites. One for the future I guess if it is true I just worry will be loaned out and never get a chance or take the chance of others. I know we need to hedge our bets and have a broad section of young players who may or may not make the grade. I can't help but feel that there are too many in this bracket and they can't all be given a chance even if the manager was willing to. Which he doesn't seem to be.

Higgins

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea about our interest sorry. I know Villa enquired but the asking price was 'ridiculous' (that's a quote from what I was told but I have no idea what amount that actually means!) so they looked elsewhere and ended up with Cleverley.}


1.) 19 Jan 2015 10:22:02
"so they looked elsewhere and ended up with Cleverley"

Has got to be one of the most depressing sentences ever!

{Ed001's Note - almost makes me feel sorry for Villa fans.}


2.) That made me laugh ed, cleverly is the definition of being called up to England just because you play for united

Matip not in squad, not due to injury but doubts with FIFA over whether he was clear to play? This is a joke right? Should have been clear one way or another weeks ago!

Higgins

1.) 15 Jan 2017 15:00:04
Matip says he's retired al why can't they accept this


2.) 15 Jan 2017 15:19:34
The club should have sorted this weeks ago. No clue what are some people paid for.


3.) 15 Jan 2017 15:48:29
He retired September 2015. Completely ridiculous he should be available and given time elapsed since he's retired this should have been sorted out by FIFA in no time.


 

 

08 Jan 2017 08:44:16
Jerome Sinclair scored a wonder goal yesterday. Knew we should have kept him.

Of course we shouldn't he had an attitude problem and I know a few Watford supporter friends who advise he isn't setting the world on fire there.

Hopefully that should eradicate the need to have that discussion on here now 😜

Higgins

1.) 08 Jan 2017 11:54:06
Thank you, Higgins, for your efficiency. Could you also argue between me and my wife for me? Then we can just watch with a cup of tea whilst you decide I was right all along 😜😀😉🤔🤣


2.) 08 Jan 2017 12:29:33
Fights with women are easy, just tell her she's right, even though she's wrong.

Although it's not the normal to get good signings in January., Arguably our best last 3 signings occurred in the January window. Sturridge, Suarez and Coutinho all signed then.
Don't think we need a signing this window particularly but you never know and it is possible to get value.

Higgins

1.) 04 Jan 2017 23:18:18
Watch the hyenas on here don't rip you to bits for suggesting improving our squad. Clearly they're right I mean we finished 8th last season.


2.) 04 Jan 2017 23:32:04
I listened to the sharkopod again and decided to look at the you tube clips of the attacking players we have been linked with. So maxime lopez, moussa merega, sardar azmoun and one not mentioned by ed2 but recently in the press quincy promes.

Then i watched a clip that showed them all up and thought he would definately do well in the team, especially the way its playing now.

Do you want to know who that is, sheyi ojo, don't believe me, have a look at all their clips and compare his. Now im not saying they are a judge of a player, we know its a pastiche, a best of highlight reel that doesn't tell you if they regularly go missing in games or lose a ball and make no effort to retrieve etc. But we have a player who with games and more experience could be the lynch pin of our team for a decade and he is already aclimatised to the English game and klopps way of working.

So why put a barrier in his way to stop him realising his potential. Obviously if as ed2 said coutinho decides to go in the summer, i expect to milk as much out of psg as we can and then go out for a big player. But until then i think we do not need to get anyone in.

We also have an excellent player in gomez who is slowly regaining fitness who we also do not want to block. I too worry about not having deep enough cover for injuries etc but why have a youth system if your not going to use it. I suspect we will see some of them in the fa and league cup but i think they will also start getting chances to show what they are made of in the league too. Give them a chance and we will benefit, much like manchester utd did in the nineties and look what happened with that generation!


3.) 04 Jan 2017 23:43:17
If an improvement can be made I don't mind it, it looks possible 2 of our centrebacks may be on the way in January (Lucasand Sakho) we currently only have about 18 senior squad members discouting youngsters if they do go)
I mentioned previously Lovren and Klavan don't fill me with confidence. I don't think they fill Klopp with it either. Matip needs a better partner, If our scouts identified one, I would be happy with that. Gomez is coming back to fitness but I would rather not rely on an inexperienced 19 year old CB for a title push.

As an indulgence purchas in January, I wouldn't mind Thomas Muller I do feel he's undervalued at Munich and has real world class potential in the striker role underutilised in favour of Lewa, with Sturridge struggling t stay fitand Ings out, we for me, are missing a natural striker, Origi is young and seems more suited to the right wing atm, and I don't really want to rely on Bobby too much for goals, I just feel tat though he offers a igh work rate, his finishing at times lacks quality and compoure.


4.) 04 Jan 2017 23:54:28
What on earth are you on about, Lerchy? No one has ever said that we don't need to improve the squad. What we are saying is that we need to stop overspending on poor players or signing players for the sake of it and that's not Klopp's style so I guess you'll have to live with that if indeed you are a true LFC fan. We should focus on said players like Matip and Mane, who have improved us immensely. And if you are bent on seeing hyenas, I suggest you watch the National Geographic channel.


5.) 05 Jan 2017 00:07:04
World class potential? . muller. He is world class.

Thats all.


6.) 05 Jan 2017 00:19:12
We all know why youth system was not utilise as back up, to put it crudely Klopp hasn't the balls. Look at Pochettino, he been playing Winks in league games. And we have youngsters better than winks. Klopp plays them only in fa cup or efl.


7.) 05 Jan 2017 02:28:07
Hamilton i posted here saying gabby barbosa woukd be a good young potential and frankly the replies I received jusr make me not want to post and i ain't the only one to bring this up lately. Most on here, obvious Ed's Ron mk etc are sound and will have a valid debate but others are as I quote hyenas and always have to be right. It weren't like tgis years ago.


8.) 05 Jan 2017 03:16:45
Leek, are you an LFC fan cos if you were, you wouldn`t be mentioning other managers in a way to bash Klopp. Also, were you under a rock last season where Klopp gave extensive decent playing time to Ojo, Branagan, Brad Smith, Kevin Stewart? Or this season where players like Ejaria, TAA, Woodburn and Grujic? "Klopp doesn`t have the balls". Utter nonsense and your overall post is an embarassment.


9.) 05 Jan 2017 04:41:21
Whenever we lost or drew, they will be some who will have digs on certain players, the manager, the selection, the tactics, and maybe more.

Now, it's Klopp who doesn't have the balls to play the youngsters? What if he chose the youngsters, and we lost?

Maybe your point is not directly towards the Sunderland game, Leek, but using Pochettino as a comparison. hmmm. I'm out of words already. Nevermind.


10.) 05 Jan 2017 07:06:54
I just think that there are other ways to improve the squad than new signings and new signings do not always improve the squad.
I'm happy with Klopp in charge that recruitment has improved and seems less scatter-gun and more focused.
If Klopp thinks a new signing will improve the squad, I'll back him obviously. I'd like to see our youth utilised more effectively, but some are still very raw. It's a fine balance to be struck, which is where he earns his money I suppose.


11.) 05 Jan 2017 10:49:40
Super mane, I meant in the striker role, he's beens tuck out on the right for the last few years, I can't say he's a world class striker without having seen him there. He's been a great wideplayer for them with robben missing, but he's not making the 11 and isn't playing centrally as a striker.
Maybe you didn't read the post correctly or think Muller has been playing the role of centre forward for the last few years?


12.) 05 Jan 2017 18:07:38
Wow most seemed to have missed my point which was debating that there may be value to be had in January and not to dismiss it out of hand that we wouldn't sign someone. Not convinced we need to, but we will see.

Evening all Eds. Wanted to get in there early and wish you all the best over the festive period. Speicial mention to Ed025 for braving the site recently - are you a new addition Ed025 or do you just spend time on other fan pages? Either way it's nice to see fresh faces and opinions, no offence to the regular Eds.

Also all the regular posters hope you all have a great Christmas and new year, which means Liverpool winning all their games of course 😊 Peace and love to all!

Higgins

After reading a debate on the rumours page of this site between Barkley and Henderson I think the match illustrated everything that needs to be said. Horrendous challenge by Barkley, moments later Henderson had the perfect chance to clatter him, yet he simply nicks the ball away. Great maturity, him and Gini kept the ball well and played it nice and simple to keep the crowd quiet. Mane was electric too and say what you will Sturridge has a habit of making things happen one way or another.

Higgins

{Ed001's Note - he was given an absolute lesson by a far better player. Barkley is just an overrated drunk.}


1.) 19 Dec 2016 22:20:49
Barkley proved a lot of points made about him tonight including his native ability and his thuggish tendancies but one moment stuck out for me; about 20 minutes in they had every player except the GK in our half, piling on the pressure, our defense was beginning to shake and he got the ball at the corner of the box, 35 yards out. Instead of continuing to pull us around, or try and play in a teammate, he aims for the tiny square of goal he could see from that distance, with 2 LFC players en route, and completely wastes the pressure and the chance. That to me is him in a nutshell - much like Whilshere, he's not matured a moment past the talented 20 year old we saw years before and all that's happened since is loosing the innocence behind the wild moves. Sadly, another career of a talented English player likely to be wasted by being treated like a member of the x-factor generation.


2.) 19 Dec 2016 22:45:58
Trying all his life emulating Steven gerrard while the reality is he wouldn't lace the boots of Gerrard.


3.) 20 Dec 2016 02:12:35
His boots? He can't even wash SG's car he's that awful.

I'd argue if Firmino can learn the striker role that quickly he has a good football brain and should easily be able to adjust back to playing out wide. He won't have forgotten everything else.
Our team as a whole works better with him central it seems though and I'm sure when everyone is fit we will see them playing in positions they excel most at where the team thrives. We had players out and changed things which didn't work rather than the constant tinkering of Brendan.

Many on here possibly yourself HBK (May be wrong) have stated we need a CF as Firmino wasn't a striker. Now if he's played on the wing he is out of position? Players were not in their best position but there is a subtle yet important difference. Anyone who Klopp has regularly played out of position has actually improved the team for me.

It is all too easy to inadvertently select them when scrolling down the screen. I know it will help fund the site though so hopefully there is a compromise to be made.
