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 👍🏻.

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

Probably get a lot of hate for this. Defoe is available. If his wage demands aren't too ridiculous I don't think it's a bad shout. A one year contract to cover our squad and likely injuries, Ings could go on loan to get match fit. I know he has his deficiencies but he gets goals and could prove an asset and a short term fix. Unsure of his attitude but with his experience would he not be good for the youngsters also?

Let the abuse begin.

Higgins

1.) 28 Jun 2017 11:48:02
He's at bmouth.


2.) 28 Jun 2017 11:50:31
We don't need more strikers we have Firmino, Sturridge, Origi, Ings, Solanke, Woodburn and Brewster. We only play with one striker we should be trying to move the ones on we don't need not buying more in. Sturridge should be sold as much as I would like to see him get over his injury issues I can't see it happening. Ings should leave out on loan and get some game time he has had a long lay off with injuries. Woodburn and Brewster should be given chances in the cup when available. Solanke was player of the U20 World Cup that is a big honour and shows he has what it takes to challenge for a first team place. that's leave us with Firmino, Origi and Solanke as our main Strikers.


3.) 28 Jun 2017 11:59:07
I would take defoe all day long. We should have snapped him up years ago. But yeah if we are going to go with the strikers we have at the min. Which I think we will. Defoe would be brilliant as a back up. Much like when Fowler came back, if he would be happy to be our super sub that is.


4.) 28 Jun 2017 12:06:08
Higgins, no abuse as the concept of this makes sense. Also a chance for our youngsters like Solanke and Origi to learn via training. IN an ideal world, the older player then ends up on the coaching staff in years to come. A scenario like Gary Mac could be win-win-win for older player, club and younger players.

The only 'however' is that I don't think Defoe specifically actually works with our style of play. I may be mistaken (correct me if I'm wrong as I've not really watched Defoe over the years) but he isn't a pressing player? Nor particularly interchangeable, as our front line of Salah, Mane and Firmino would be. Therefore, if we need to change our style of play to accommodate him, it may not work out.

Nailed on for Bournemouth.

Morning all. My brother in law got me tickets to a Liverpool game of my choice this season for my 40th. What would you suggest would be a good game to go to bearing in mind costs, travel and availability of tickets etc. Also kick off times do they have much of an impact? We will be having a night out after the game too of course so suggestions there would be good too. I'm based Northamptonshire and he is London. Only been Anfield half a dozen times or so and not since the stadium upgrade but then away at Leicester would be less travel for example. Cheers in advance for any input all.

Higgins

1.) 25 Jun 2017 09:47:36
Champions league semi final at Anfield 😎

Seriously, it can be difficult to predict. Kick off times definitely effect the atmosphere, avoid lunch time kick off in my opinion.
It's just a thought, but my random tip would be LFC v Newcastle Saturday March 3rd 3pm. We've had some barnstorming games with them in the past, the Geordies always make a racket without much nastiness, 2 attacking teams last season and of course the "Rafa factor".


2.) 25 Jun 2017 09:50:48
Kick off times will change for tv reasons so hard to call at all. Availability also is one no one can answer.


3.) 25 Jun 2017 10:04:47
Good shout Ron another 4-3 perhaps? Thank you and good point about games changing times for TV.

So it's only a YouTube clip but saw a highlights reel of Can against Chile. Looked to have a good game although obviously only showed his good moments. Anyone see the whole game did he play well through out considering he was facing off against Vidal?

Higgins

1.) 24 Jun 2017 08:44:30
I saw the whole game and Can was very good in midfield. It was his driving run through midfield that led to Germany's equalizer with a defence-splitting pass to Hector who crossed to Lars Stindl (Btw, I would love him at LFC) to slide home. He used the ball well, kept possession efficiently, good in the tackle and more than held his own against Arturo Vidal.

He hast resumed from where he left off in the alst three months of solid performances for LFC with his good play. Those saying he should be sold need to give their heads a wobble and then get back to the rest of us.


2.) 24 Jun 2017 10:51:12
He's a squad player.

Nothing more.


3.) 24 Jun 2017 11:21:19
Watched it too and the set up for the equalizer showcased the best of Can. opened himself up for a square ball bailing the defender out, following it with a hard driving run from midfield into space, and then a perfectly timed pass to set up Hector. Looked to be strong in the tackle and shielded the ball well when needed. Give the boy the 100k a week and sign him up long term. certainly up there with Coutinho as one of our best buys in the last ten years.


4.) 24 Jun 2017 12:47:53
Squad player to be replaced by who in the starting 11 (if hendo is not fit), Davey or is this one of your open ended posts that lack any type of logical reasoning?

Widely reported £39m deal agreed for Egyptian Messi.

Higgins

1.) 20 Jun 2017 15:47:27
Can we please refrain from calling Salah the "Egyptian Messi"? It simply makes u as dumb as the idiots who coin such rubbish in the first place.


2.) 20 Jun 2017 15:49:29
Who did a turd in your kettle?


3.) 20 Jun 2017 16:18:48
Someone's tired!


4.) 20 Jun 2017 16:33:28
Lfcfan i like that. i would of gone with "who took a rubbish in your handbag" but i do like your version!


5.) 20 Jun 2017 16:56:13
Like having a Ferrari on each wing now with the Egyptian Messi and the Senegalese Ronaldo in our team 😉😂 we're going to be frightening on the break.


6.) 20 Jun 2017 17:03:16
Chill out guys. Had a difficult day, let's not talk about kettles or turds today. Just happy Salah is over the line now.


 

 

10 Jun 2017 16:33:42
Pleased that Sturridge not involved for England although I'm sure it will be disappointing for him. Lallanas first game back since injured on international duty. Please please stay fit, fancy him being MOM again today he really has improved this season.

Higgins

1.) 10 Jun 2017 17:23:27
Let's see how Robertson gets on though against England. Probably won't be tested too much. Really baffles me how so many rate walker so highly btw. Every time I see him I think he's going to miss control, try play out and get caught or play one of those brilliant back passes 😅.


2.) 10 Jun 2017 17:43:41
Walker has improved a lot over the last couple of seasons, probably helps he's playing in a good team with strong centre backs and holding midfielders.


3.) 10 Jun 2017 18:26:31
Are you watching the game? Caught behind attacker, could have been pen if Griffiths hadn't made a meal of it. Been caught a few times trying to run out too tho nothing has come of that. Yet. He's decent but don't understand how he's rated as the best and Clyne gets a slating from our own fans.


4.) 11 Jun 2017 07:16:36
So your judging him off one game? The lad got in the PFA team of the year, that tells you what kind of season he has had and it's been miles ahead of what Clynes just had.

I suspect he wouldn't command a large fee and I thought he was more of a winger? Physically a beast but does he have the brain and attitude to go with it or is he a Balotelli in the making?

I'd rather he played regularly for Newcastle at this stage then sat on the bench watching our newly signed left winger play in his spot.

Seems harsh and rushed decision for Klopp to judge Gomez as not good enough. Been out so long he hasn't really seen him play fully fit yet and he is only a youngster. Oh well what will be will be.

Personally my first choice would not be Gaya. Don't get me wrong Ed001, I just think sexual preference really shouldn't come in to it.

Probably only the MotoGP at present and a watchful eye on athletics when it comes to Olympics etc. F1 is just dull now but if that improved I would watch too.

You have answered your own question, if that happened then maybe we would. Some will some won't all of them as individuals could go but collectively won't if it proved an issue so chill 👍🏻.
