Heard Ings picked up an injury anyone know if it's serious hope it's not knee related 😔.

Higgins

1.) 11 Sep 2017 12:58:13
Precautionary I believe.

If you get the chance to look at the highlights on LFC TV, take a look at Yan Dhandas curl on that free kick that was just saved. wow. Nice goal from free play too, looking very useful and we have a lot of talent in young attacking players at the moment with him, Woodburn, Ojo, Wilson, Brewster etc.

Also think Matty Virtue is a name we could hearing more of before too long. He's playing great football in a box to box role, might be due a shot in cup game alongside Grujic.


2.) 11 Sep 2017 17:39:57
Eds wat do u think we could have a potential replacement for emre can in grujic big unit of a lad with engine good passing good heading eye for goal maybe could work on tackling, hope he gets more minutes looks useful.

{Ed025's Note - keita will be the replacement for can hailstones and let me tell you he is a massive upgrade, grujic is half decent but for me will have to improve a lot to make the step up, im not saying he cant but it would be a lot of pressure on the lad and for me a couple of cup games would be the order of the day for me mate..


3.) 12 Sep 2017 07:31:20
Are we talking city can or arsenal can? Because he was sublime against arsenal. I feel if he could hold that form he would be giving klopp a wonderfully hard decision come next season (if he stays)


4.) 12 Sep 2017 16:04:33
I think we're talking about Emre Can, aoe.


5.) 12 Sep 2017 18:39:28
Touché mk. We're also talking about poor old Danny as well. Hope it doesn't knock him back too much.


6.) 13 Sep 2017 05:09:41
Just saw footage of Ings training with the first team yesterday. Injury can't have been too bad then.


7.) 13 Sep 2017 17:21:51
you watch a lot of RBL ed025? I can't personally say I've seen much of Keita but I'm buzzing that we've signed him. Is he that good?

{Ed025's Note - well i think he is Tj, i think you have got a cracker there and for me hes a cross between kante and iniesta, very intense and gets up and down the pitch all game but not only is he defensively sound he can link with the midfield and forwards and will score goals, i have to admit im very envious mate..


8.) 13 Sep 2017 18:35:49
Yeah Keita is already a worldy, IMO. Every time I've had a chance to watch he has looked like the best player on the pitch (a trait Mane shares high kicks notwithstanding) . Would prefer to see Can stay also but I have always thought Keita is his direct replacement. Hopefully Emre has a great season either way.

{Ed025's Note - hes a top top player amerigo..


9.) 14 Sep 2017 05:14:24
He looks effortless when running with the ball. Has a good work ethic and looks like he has a competitive streak. Gets the ball and immediately tries to promote it forward. One caveat, he does seem to try and pull off the miracle pass a bit too often in my opinion - sometimes at the expense of a sideways pass which would be the smarter option.


10.) 14 Sep 2017 08:28:54
Tell ya wat ed 025 we needed him yesterday hendo is shot wid all the injuries, can looks like he had too many pies, gini good at home but goes missin away, is there any chance he can come in january heard there was, still tryin too get me ead round our signings in window, No defence!

{Ed025's Note - he will stay at RBL for the season i expect hailstones..


 

 

27 Feb 2017 12:38:38
Blast from the past. Has liverpools interest in Konoplyanka gone now Ed? I assume it has, don't mean to throw random names at you either thank you in advance.

Higgins

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any Liverpool interest from Liverpool since the start of 2014 (more than three years ago) and it would be fruitless as he is moving elsewhere in the summer.}


1.) 27 Feb 2017 15:48:58
Thanks for the update Ed I was unaware he was already off elsewhere enjoy the rest of your day 👍🏻.


 

 

10 Nov 2015 22:01:01
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.}


 

 

05 Nov 2015 21:15:50
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?

Higgins

 

 

19 Oct 2015 13:41:15
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?

Eds and all thank you for all your hard work. Can I ask has Markovic left or not?

Forget all these irrelevant and unimportant posts. The most important thing that needs to be discussed right now, is the Ox's haircut silly enough for LFC or does it just pass as normal? I'm on the fence with this one.

Higgins

1.) 31 Aug 2017 14:19:48
I thought that thing on his head was a silly hat.


2.) 31 Aug 2017 14:21:18
Known as an alpaca cut in the trade.


3.) 31 Aug 2017 14:22:55
It's too conservative lol.


4.) 31 Aug 2017 14:34:38
Needs another colour or 2 to really fit in.


5.) 31 Aug 2017 14:43:24
Maybe a blonde line for the link up with mane? Or he could try this mess that firmino had last year with the ponytail. That was something special. :D.


 

 

30 Aug 2017 18:59:38
Probably in the minority here but happy with the Ox. He hasn't developed as expected at Arsenal but who has? He may surprise some people I reckon if he can stay fit. We now have an ambundance of pace in our side and play more to his strengths with our style of play. Plus keeps our quota of Homegrown talent in check.

Higgins

1.) 30 Aug 2017 19:06:57
I totally agree with you mate, all these people saying that Ox is a waste of money are not talking sense, if Liverpool had not signed Ox then people would criticise FSG for not bringing him in.


2.) 30 Aug 2017 19:07:43
I think FairPlay to ox. He has turned down £180k a week to stay at arsenal for a lower (albeit I wouldn't say no to it! ) salary because he has a massive desire to play for us.

Can't fault him for that, let's all get behind him as he is now one of our own :)


3.) 30 Aug 2017 19:10:53
I agree with you mate.


4.) 30 Aug 2017 19:14:16
Would I be right in say you are bullish about his signing Higgins? I'll get my coat.


5.) 30 Aug 2017 19:15:36
You might be in the minority mate but I'm right there with ya! ;-)


6.) 30 Aug 2017 19:32:41
This is turning out to be a happy end to the Oxtail. Soup gags please.


7.) 30 Aug 2017 21:07:49
I think Ox has good attributes. He has a bit of bite/ grit about him, can get around the pitch and is technically good with pace. I hope to see him go up a level or 2 under Klopps guidance regarding positioning, movement off the ball and end product.

His prescence creates more competition which is causing our squad to thrive and he will act as good cover particularly in wide areas which we need. Given the market, Ox being a decent player and Arsenal being a rival its a decent deal for the club IMO. Plus, Perrie isn't a bad bit of sort is she ; ) Welcome to AOC!

{Ed025's Note - now for the negatives...he is a very average player who could barely get in a poor arsenal side, he will spend most of his time on the bench thats when hes not on the treatment table of course..

Afternoon all,

I read Ojo impressed for Fulham at the weekend which got me thinking is anyone providing any loan updates like last year? Be great if you could 👍🏻.

Higgins

1.) 29 Aug 2017 13:28:29
Carragold 23 may be 👍.


2.) 29 Aug 2017 13:47:59
I will as soon as the transfer window closes 👍.


3.) 29 Aug 2017 14:26:47
Nice one Carra👌.


4.) 29 Aug 2017 14:54:44
Thanks carra, must admit it was something I actively looked for last season so appreciated!


5.) 29 Aug 2017 15:18:18
Big thanks to 23Carragold and SquareTomato for updates on Non First 11 and Joe Gomez.

Cheers.

Away from transfers etc it was a great performance against Arsenal and I hate to take anything away from it but.

They came out and tried to beat us, had more possession and we destroyed them on the counter attack. Basically the way they play is made for us. So whilst it is a great result I'd expect us to win. We all know it's the bus parking teams who counter attack us that we need to worry about, along with the set pieces issue. The Arsenal result for all its glory doesn't mean much is we can't beat a team who are set up to defend.

On another note how can Wenger not know this from a tactical perspective? Seems they also lack a plan B.

Higgins

1.) 28 Aug 2017 20:46:49
Higgins, John Barnes made the exact same comment on BEIN Sport after the game. Let us remember that since Klopp arrived, we have given the big teams like Chelsea, City and Arsenal (home and away), a good hiding so we learnt nothing new about our ability to punish the big teams even vs Utd who we brushed aside in the EL and who have to park three buses just to get a point. We do this all the time. It is the games vs the lesser teams like Palace, that are the statement games that we need to win. That is where we need to see improvement.


2.) 28 Aug 2017 22:32:59
I thought we beat Palace? Didn't last year so must be an improvement.


3.) 29 Aug 2017 00:35:19
We just beat Palace. There goes your argument Bingo.

Think the 6 week old daughter and lack of sleep is catching up with me Ed I must have slipped an "and" in your sentence somehow. Makes sense re reading this morning! Apologies my bad!

Hi Ed sorry to pull you up but you have advised Liverpool expect to pay £3 million and then later on that you expect they will end up paying £2.5 to £3 million but are wrong in their assessment. Was there a typo somewhere as those figures suggest the assessment to be correct?

Higgins

Disappointed Lallana is injured, of course he would be first choice. However it does give an opportunity for Grujic who looks class. But worried about his temperament though looks like he has a red card in him. Anyone know his record for his previous club discipline wise?
