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?

Higgins

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

Rumour has it we are no longer in for Southamptons VVD instead we are waiting to see who they go for to replace him and buy them instead 👍🏻😂.

Higgins

1.) 22 Apr 2017 12:25:44
Actually makes sense. Would show the football men at LFC have at least learnt some of their lessons. 50 million for VVD is just plain ridiculous.


2.) 22 Apr 2017 12:36:43
That would be weird Higgins as apparently they are looking at Sakho.


3.) 22 Apr 2017 13:16:23
LOl! Thread of the month! 😄.


4.) 22 Apr 2017 16:57:45
Lol. Great thread. I will say that VVD for 50m is madness. Other clubs are welcome to him.


5.) 22 Apr 2017 17:00:55
I heard they are looking at Pontous Jansen (Leeds) when VVD leaves.


 

 

16 Apr 2017 16:30:40
What's everyone's thoughts on Ajaxs set up. Average age of 22 against Schalke and have played 1600 consecutive games with at least one academy graduate in there team. That possible in the Prem?

Higgins

1.) 16 Apr 2017 16:54:40
Of course it's possible. Just takes putting two fingers up at ridiculous fans demanding instant gratification in a context-less environment with no ramifications.


2.) 16 Apr 2017 16:56:34
Short answer - no.

Southampton are the closest we have to a side like Ajax in the premier league.

This league is far too high pressured, young players are hounded by fans after a few poor performances and money rules all meaning any players that look half decent are poached to play for "bigger" teams.


 

 

05 Apr 2017 08:33:33
Great set of results so far this week. If City and Chelsea draw, Swansea get a result and we win, things will look altogether more roses. Of course it could easily go the other way. Exciting times though and feeling positive 👍🏻🙏.

Higgins

1.) 05 Apr 2017 13:36:18
There is only one certainty about this post. Provided that they play Swansea will DEFINITELY get a result. Think about it!


2.) 05 Apr 2017 14:24:06
Looking at the table now, top four spot is ours to lose. If we win our games, we'll get it. It is in our hands, I hope Klopp has plans to win without Mane.

Even if we're without Mane, Henderson and Lallana, we still have enough to win our remaining games. I believe in Klopp and the team to get it.


3.) 05 Apr 2017 16:37:15
15 or 16 points will be enough for fourth. But only that many if Arsenal start beating the smaller clubs like they used to do! If they don't then less than that will do.
Think we should be looking at top 3 rather than the teams below us. We might have injuries but these teams are mid table for a reason. they are just not good enough to win 5,6 and 7 consecutive games.


 

 

28 Mar 2017 16:46:49
Oh dear Lallana injured whilst on international duty. It's not like that ever happens to our players.

Rotten luck speedy recovery I hope. Is Grujic close enough to fitness to get a look in?

Higgins

1.) 28 Mar 2017 16:51:50
Gotta love the international break.


2.) 29 Mar 2017 03:51:04
injuries are part and parcel of the game, this is where klopp earns his money, he has options it will be interesting to see what he comes up with, ironic that emre can has suddenly become a key player for us, especially if Henderson is also out injured.


3.) 29 Mar 2017 04:27:38
Cos our players never get injured on liverpool duty.

LFC tv free until 3rd April folks on virgin media just saw it via the menu.

Higgins

1.) 21 Mar 2017 22:03:58
and sky.


2.) 22 Mar 2017 10:04:09
The U23s have a game against Norwich early April so hopefully the dates will be right for the free subscription. I'll do a full update tomorrow as the U23s played the other day without me knowing till after the game.
Lfctv is a good watch I must say so if you have it free, watch it!

I like the thought of signing an unknown late bloomer like that purely from the romantic perspective at least. I've never heard of him and know nothing about him and dodgy source too though. Apart from that sounds legit.

Thank you Ed this is both reassuring in terms of his attitude and disappointing to know he clearly has had such bad luck. I get a little frustrated seeing him on the pitch cruising in what looks like second gear but reality is that's all he can do with out getting injured risking injury etc. On the flip side he is still that good in terms of football brain, movement and finishing that there is a place for him in our side even when not 100%.

Higgins

{Ed001's Note - there are so many things that affect performances, especially when a player is returning from injury, it is often difficult to judge a player. The brain is still there, the fast feet and the vision, so he just needs to recover the fitness, both physical and mental, to allow him to get back to his best.}

We managed to sign Matip who wasn't too pricey at all and I guess is down to good scouting. Hopefully we can find and sign another player like this who is not on everyone else's radar.

Believe the Eds thoughts were it's better he is involved at youth level rather than the first team so hopefully it's a win win for both parties.

Looking good with City losing at present too. Who can say with any confidence we will beat Watford though. I guess they have less to play for as are safe now so perhaps an easier game than playing Boro, not that any games will be easy between now and end of the season.

In my eyes there's still 4 teams in for 3rd and 4th you can't rule Arsenal out yet. They would go level with us if they were to win their games in hand. Makes for an exciting end to the season and happy that we are involved in all honesty it would be nice to have it in the bag but where is the fun in that!?

Well said Ron. Hendo always gives the club 100% so he always gets my support 100% when he needs it most. Yep let's kick a player when he is down. If only the club had a mott, something catchy like er I dunno how about "you'll never walk alone" that sounds good! Not "you'll never walk alone, unless you are injured or hit a bad run of form then we will kick you whilst you're down"

Eds point is he doesn't want to be back up and on the periphery of things he wants and needs game time like he's getting at Hull. Much as I'd like to see him get a chance not sure it's the right move. How long is left on his contract? Would another loan be a good move even staying with Hull if they stay up for another season. The more time he gets in the premiership the more we can see what his potential might be. Ideally in a side that plays similar ish to us.

Didn't Stevie G play RB for quite a few of his first games. Just saying 😊
But I thought he was a midfielder for the reserves or under 21s etc and that he just played RB as that's where the need was.
I like TAA though has something about him.
