Hi
Not sure if this has been talked about yet apologies if it has
I recall before the season began that one of the Ed's didn't see Gomez getting much game time,
To me he's lookIng solid and improved next to vvd
Hope the change to his natural position is behind this
For me vvd and Gomez are first choice
He may make errors but will only get better and learn from vvd
Thoughts.

{Ed0333's Note - I don’t think many Liverpool fans saw Joe getting much game time after Lovrens performances at the World Cup. Football is contrarie and things can turn on a dime. It’s only beneficial for the team that Lovren and Joe are fighting for a place as this will mean their both playing well. Gomez has excelled at center back for sure but he’s a not too shabby right back either and when we want to tighten up that defense another notch I’d have no problem with him slotting in there. Regardless he’s worked hard, by all accounts is a good lad and deserves his opportunities and success. I’m absolutely delighted he’s a Liverpool player.


1.) 13 Oct 2018 05:51:44
I'm delighted too, he's a great young player with a fantastic future ahead of him. He still has a lot to learn but at his age, who doesn't? overall I think we have a hell of a lot to be excited about with Gomez.


2.) 13 Oct 2018 10:52:04
To be honest, I was excited about him since Rodgers played him at left back at 18, and although he was far from perfect, you could tell this lad had something special about him. I can see him being a future star, not just a solid PL centre back. Being English and all, that’s not a common thing, but it is exciting.


3.) 13 Oct 2018 13:21:51
Agreed bardzo.


4.) 13 Oct 2018 22:03:54
Spot on, Ed. I was worried for him when he got injured 3 years ago and was not sure how he would cope being a CB for LFC BUT his talent was never in doubt. He has stepped up well and made our defence better, just like VVD and Lovs have with Lovs improving his game MASSIVELY. Great to have 3 awesome CB's out of 4 to pick from and in so doing, even Matip will have to up his game as well.

But let's remember that he is still learning the game hence, mistakes will happen (as we saw vs City and Spurs) so let's be patient with him cos like it or not, this will be his first season in the top flight playing at CB so he will still have a lot to learn BUT I'm sure with the calm head he has and his drive to succeed, he is in the best place (with the best manager, team mates and fans) to fulfill his potential cos he's got loads of it to spare.


5.) 13 Oct 2018 07:48:33
Ed333, What I liked and do like the most about Gomez was his desire to get fit and fight for his place after really lengthy injury. The Ox can take note of Joe’s ability and dare I say mental strength to come back stronger.

{Ed0333's Note - I hope so mate because we need a fully fit Ox firing on all cylinders and I never thought I would ever say that when he signed.


 

 

12 Oct 2018 22:04:05
Hi all
Re the earlier post
Agree we are missing the ox at this time
Agree also about not sure when we got him in .
But with time and effort and skill and a attitude to work and learn he became increasingly important to us, I think he changed a lot of fans thoughts on him
Also gets the club and settled well
Also understand his desire to play for Klopp in the right position for him

Just hope Keita can look and learn form him and push on once he settled in
As sure he's going to be great
The future looks good.

I think keita will be grand as long as he doesn’t kick off behind the scenes. Started well and as the season progresses, I think he could be a big big player. I’m more concerned about Fabinho - let me rephrase, less concerned but more impatient. I think he could be a monster in the middle. Hoping he settles and adapts to klopps game sooner than later.


2.) 13 Oct 2018 22:09:02
Spot on, OP. Of all the players we need in midfield right now, Ox is the one we miss the most, IMO and not Fekir. I said I did not want Ox here cos his record at Arsenal was next to nothing to write home about and he convinced me that he IS the real deal so I already ate my crow last season. The hope now, is that Keita can continue to progress and settle into the team so he can be the force that Ox was.

Evening all
I don't want to jump the gun with this one but!
With the way Sturridge has started this season looking much better than he has in years .
Is there a chance he may have his contact extended? As his current one expires at the end of the season,
I no it's early days but he does still have some class left in him
He's much more a goal threat than other on the clubs books
Thoughts please one and all.

Honest ross

1.) 27 Sep 2018 22:09:10
My honest opinion is he will score goals in the right set up but unfortunately that isn't with us. He doesn't seem quick enough anymore and he doesn't press enough for our system. Unless he has another couple of gears he hasn't shown as of yet. Then you also need him to accept being a back up player which im not so sure he is willing to accept unless he has changed his stance since last season. Undoubtedly our next best option as a goal threat but doesn't fit the system and the requirements needed for me.


2.) 27 Sep 2018 22:17:19
jumping the gun! Far too soon.

When was his last good season?
To my memory it was the season before his contract was renewed 🤨
I’d give him a rolling contract 😄.

{Ed025's Note - pay as you play for me ron...which will net him about 30 bob a season mate.. :)


3.) 27 Sep 2018 22:34:05
I agree with P1 on this one, Sturridge will always be a goal threat but I don’t think he presses hard enough and I think that he often takes too many touches slowing our attack down. I still think he is a good player but he doesn’t have the explosiveness that he used to have and I don’t think he suits our style of play anymore.


4.) 27 Sep 2018 22:34:42
Players get serious injuries, are out for a year or two and everybody forgets how good they were. I noticed sturridge pressing a lot against Chelsea. I was surprised to see him playing that way, the klopp way. I think klopp has finally "broken" him. You know what I mean? He has him playing the klopp way.

He is a striker and is thus judged by his goal scoring record and he is at a goal a game. So "when was his last good season"? Now is his last good season. He was injured, not stopped because he wasn't good enough. It frustrates me so much. He should have scored that open goal but he did score an over head kick. He isn't as fast as he was but he isn't slow either.

He can play anywhere on that front line, left, right or centre. He is well worth having in our squad. He is on high wages so let's be pleased ge is now earning those wages.

Bobby is still number one but I tell you, sturridge is a fantastic player to have on your bench or starting.


5.) 27 Sep 2018 22:38:14
Sorry BUT Studge needs to improve a lot before we can start saying "he still has some class left in him) . In the two games he has started vs PSG and vs Chelsea, he easily should have had a hat trick in both games and no one would have blinked. His touch is poor, his first touch is even worse at the moment, and his finishing is simply not good enough right now. Don't know if he can or will improve BUT he had better start sorting these issues out before we can even think about what type of contract he should get here or elsewhere.


6.) 27 Sep 2018 22:45:04
He was rightly given a 100k/ week 5yr contract after 2013/ 14.

20 million in wages so far, can’t think of what he’s done in that time. Scored a goal in the Europa final I suppose.

I know he’s good around the dressing room etc but we can get someone to do that role for a lot less than 5 million a year. Hey I’ll do it for 4 million! 👍
He’s a lot to prove before he’s given a new (bigger) contract.


7.) 27 Sep 2018 23:57:34
Completely agree Ron, I have nothing else to add, you've covered it!


8.) 28 Sep 2018 00:21:53
Where have these stellar performances been? He’s been gang average for me. Unfortunately injuries have stopped him from going to the next level. A huge Studge fan but I think he’s no more than a backup. I’m sure he will have his part to play though.


9.) 28 Sep 2018 00:59:35
He has scored in every game he has played, in pre season too. Jeez.


10.) 28 Sep 2018 05:36:57
To critisise him for missing chances is odd, people must have short memories because he always took 2/ 3 chance to score.
He is a very good option to have on the bench because he is a threat, which will make other teams defenses nervous when he comes on.
He was also always a confidence player, if he can start for for a run of games the goals will come and he will look better. The main positive is that he has scored when he’s played, even looking far from his best. If he can stay fit for the majority of the season he can get 20 goals, that plus our new defensive ability and the goals of the other 3 attackers should have us right in the mix come May.


11.) 28 Sep 2018 07:56:45
I would love to know who we gonnna bring in to replaces sturridge if he leaves.

Who would be happy to sit on the bench week in week out behind firmino.

Sturridge is understanding of his non staring role, clearly has ability and offers us skill, knowhow, experience and an ability to play a great paas and can score.

If he stays fit, there is no better option imo as he fits every criteria except pace.

{Ed025's Note - ...and fitness...and workrate...and heart.. :)


12.) 28 Sep 2018 08:19:25
The guy scores an over head kick and is getting slated. Weird world. Danny played well, he can dribble and he can pass and he is a great finisher. He also pressed a lot and caused chelski to mess up.


13.) 28 Sep 2018 08:52:28
If Bobby gets injured (which strangely never happens) then ds can fill in. Bobby hurt his eye, Danny came in and scored. What more do you want. He has the ability to come deep and orchestrate play. Very skillful. His first touch was a bit off with Chelsea, I'd say he is 90% match sharp.

{Ed025's Note - well danny is after a new contract and i imagine he will be full of vigor and enthusiasm...until its signed of course, then he will return to type..


14.) 28 Sep 2018 09:08:07
People knocking him, saying he should have had a hatrick are accidentally praising him. Against two of the world's richest teams, he created 6 really good chances, not to mention the odd 25 yard chips. And he made the ndt bulge against them. Its the defence that need slating. I still can't believe migs wears a Liverpool shirt! I thought lovren might come back from the wc as the "best defender in the world" but no, still just slightly below the required level to take the reds to the top. I like lovren and he is a decent back up cb but I prefer Joe.


15.) 28 Sep 2018 10:16:01
I very much doubt sturridge expects a pay rise from us. At some point this season, we'll offer him what we think he's worth, he'll either sign or not sign, that's pretty much it. Whatever motivation he has for playing well (and he is, as a back up forward), if it helps us towards the title, then I'm happy having him around.


16.) 28 Sep 2018 11:05:22
Not many footballers agents will let them sign a new contract for less wages than they got 5yr ago. I’m afraid I see the same DS as Ed025.


17.) 28 Sep 2018 13:54:22
I think playing for West brom (or playing fifa in the rehab room) was a shock to him. Realised he either plays well or he is finished at the glory end of the league, he could have been playing in the championship if the loan deal was a loan to buy.

He has adapted his game, fair play to the lad. Let's start knocking him when he doesn't score every game.


18.) 28 Sep 2018 14:31:48
How about not knocking your own players at all?
Proper "supporter", eh?

I see you having a dig at Lovren in a post above, yet Lovren has clearly contributed more to the team than Sturridge has in the last season or so. Go figure.


19.) 28 Sep 2018 23:28:46
Mane, I played the CF position and scoring 2 goals while at the same time, missing 6 other chances is NOTHING to write home about and any CF worth his salt (including Studge) will tell you that. I expect MORE from Studge cos he is that talented in front of goal as he is the best natural finisher STILL in England, talent wise.

Watching the great Ronaldo (the real one) play, taught me that having a great first touch is what scores the goals, not the touch after that. He had the best first touch of any CF I have ever seen. In the chances Studge has missed, his first touch has been poor and that is his problem right now. Now if me expecting Studge to be better and up his game hence, convert more of his chances, is me "knocking" him then I suggest that you go re-evaluate the meaning of the word.

Just looked a few posts talking about numbers on shirts?
Tbh does it matter what’s on the back of it?
Your playing for the club and the crest on the front and that’s all that should matter should it not .
I played decent level Saturday football as a forward and never worried about the number it’s not like you can see it lol .
Question fro the Ed’s or you all are players really that fussed about there numbers?
And what are the point in them anyway as we no who they are and where they play as do the fa
Marketing?

Honest ross

{Ed001's Note - some find a certain number lucky. Other than that it makes little difference.}


1.) 21 Jul 2018 06:06:44
If I was good enough and played for Liverpool I would want the number 10 shirt as that’s the number John Barnes wore when I was a kid. I don’t see any problem with a player wanting to wear a particular number.


2.) 21 Jul 2018 08:02:21
I think the number thing doesn't really matter, people. just thought in their heads that Fekir was going to be number 10. As soon as Mane was assigned that number, people have assumed that the Fekir deal is done.

The good news is that Fekir is number 18 for Lyon and France, so I'm guessing that would be his preferred number.


3.) 21 Jul 2018 08:35:41
I like 69 but not because of any sports.


4.) 21 Jul 2018 08:46:35
It's purely due to marketing/ brand. See CR7 as example.


5.) 21 Jul 2018 09:35:25
I think its either about the players who wore the shirt before or players you idolize. Let's not kid ourselves and say it means nothing to us because I guarantee that if, for example, Markovic had requested the no. 8 shirt, he probably wouldn't have got it, which says the number means something to the club, and if he did get it then.


6.) 21 Jul 2018 09:35:58
. I swear the site just froze.

Hi all
Don’t know about you all .
But for me buzzing for the season ahead whatever it’s going to bring us .
Strongest squad we have had in ages with great spine .
Praying our gk situation is going to be solved as been our weakness for to long .
I think it may take a little time for the unit to gel as so many players still to come back from World Cup
They will need a few games to get to no each other and how they play .
This may take a few games .
Once we get up and going I think we can challenge the top sides this year
A real push in the league and deep in the cups
There will be ups and downs but it will come good
Once this squad gels it’s frightening
I believe we are in for a fantastic season and hopefully rewards at the end of it
Last point
Massive shout to the ox love the lad and is all about what we are as a family
He would have been excellent in the team this year and proved just how good he is as a team and person.
