Does anyone know how ejaria is doing, how close is he to getting in the squad again. And is woodburn still too small to cut it?

Its a coming

1.) 30 Jan 2018 10:55:30
Ejaria is really impressing, as is Woodburn. They're the stand out players in the u23 team (along with the now injured Brewster) by far this season. They work off each other brilliantly as well in attacking midfield. Watch out for Adam Lewis though. Made his u23 debut a couple of days ago and much is expected of him over the next 6-18 months.

Ejaria really should be making the bench though. He turns 21 this year and we have more to gain from playing him for 10 minutes here and there, than from giving Milner those minutes. Woodburn isn't too small, he's just young. After the furore around his goal against Leeds, it is important we make sure he stays grounded. Last thing we want is another teenager who thinks he's a big time Charlie (ie, Sterling) .

{Ed001's Note - Milner gets on the bench because he can cover multiple positions, both in midfield and defence. Ejaria can't do that, so it then limits the options available if there are injuries.}


2.) 30 Jan 2018 13:51:42
Ejaria can cover DM, CM, AM and LM though Ed. No denying he can't play RB or LB like Milner can, but although Milner may be able to play in multiple positions, he can't play any of them (except maybe RM) to a Premier League standard.

Why not use Arnold off the bench in place of Milner? He can play every position Milner can play, and to a better standard. Yet for some reason, Klopp always turns to Milner 😣 Arnold even takes penalties and set pieces better than Milner does!

{Ed001's Note - not from what I have seen of him he can't. He does not look to have the ability to play anywhere but central midfield for me, well attacking mid.}


3.) 30 Jan 2018 14:15:46
That is definitely where he is best Ed. He looked a little bit lacking in terms of discipline when i saw him play a holding role. No more so than James Milner though! Looks like he's going on loan anyway so I hope he has a good 4 months at Sunderland!

Im para phrasing here but danny murphy has basically said that keita is another jordan henderson and adds no creativity or power as he puts it to midfield.

I have limited experience of keita but from what i have seen he is nothing like henderson, my question really is what exactly will keita bring to the team and is murphy correct in his assessment.

Its a coming

1.) 10 Jan 2018 01:09:12
Danny Murphy is far from the brightest, to be honest. It is clear that he has never actually seen Keita play before because Henderson and Keita have very different styles.

Henderson is about breaking up play, pressing with regularity whether it is the 5th minute or 90th. He is also a decent passer of the ball, although I do agree that often his passes go backwards or sideways (Usually due to a lack of options but at times he does seem to hesitate on the ball and by then the chance to play the ball has gone. )

Keita is very capable on the ball, from what I have seen dribbling whether in tight spaces or open ones are his main strength. Keita is a difficult player to get off the ball, he can wriggle away from mounting pressure and use his pace to leave you in the dirt. He is hard working too, but from what I have seen his passing is lacking. He tends to play the short or simple pass, he never looks to play long passes or creative ones unless he has no other options, and, when he does, the pass is often overhit. I have watched a fair bit of German football and these are just a few things I have noticed. Keita is a very good player with the potential to be a main stay in the team for years to come. However, there are areas of his game he needs to work on and, with Klopp at the helm, I suspect you will see improvements over time.

Oh, also, as has become apparent this season, Keita seems to have lost his more competitive edge in matches. He does not resemble the man of last season who had a very serious case for being one of the top players in Germany. This year Keita looks disinterested, doesn't put a great deal of effort when tracking back to his position. I suspect this is because his head is already at Liverpool and he does not want to be in RBL. Not the best mentality but it is just my suspicion and not actual fact.

I hope this helps, I am lucky to watch a fair bit of German football and thought I would share my opinion on the two. As I said, Keita and Henderson are nothing alike and Danny Murphy needs to actually do his homework rather than spout absolute nonsense.


2.) 10 Jan 2018 01:17:24
Murphy is talking absolute bollocks. Keita will be the main "driver" of our midfield, picking up the ball from deep. He will be relied upon to be our main creative outlet from midfield whilst also contributing to defence, pressing of opposition etc. Keita is very very talented with an energy that perhaps can match that of Ngolo Kante. Ignore Murphy, he is the complete opposite to what Henderson has sadly become for us, Keita is a dynamo with the ability to play incisive one touch football or score from 30+ yards. Keita will be, and already is to some extent, special.


3.) 10 Jan 2018 01:34:27
He is the engine that drives the machine much like Kante.


4.) 10 Jan 2018 01:58:10
Are u serius lad? U listen to that AH? He's worse than Trump

U can find analysis of Keita's game on Youtube. There's one worth watching. After reading and watching several analysis I can conclude that he's the player we are missing in our midfield. He has a great engine, can carry the ball, likes to dribble and waltz through the midfield and if there's no better option he continues and attacks the defence, makes space for a shot and usually ends up scoring from the edge of the box. It doesn't work everytime as u can imagine.

He uses his dribbling quality and speed to that (little bit like Mane but better in terms of dribbling) . The other thing he does frequently is through balls, he always tries them and more often than not succeeds (prefers short passes so can't judge him on long passes) . He also intercepts very well as he has the ability to read the plays and also uses his speed to do that. Tackles when needed but can be reckless at times (like Dele Ali) . Not sure if I can judge his defensive work like getting back in time during opposition attacks, defending set pieces, following instructions.

Anyway, he's not a CDM neither an AM. He's really box to box with creativity, assists and goals in him. So, he's exactly the player we are missing in midfield as Can, Henderson and Gini aren't good enough or have zero creativity against EUROLINES/

Hope that helps.


5.) 10 Jan 2018 03:09:20
Danny never was the brightest.


6.) 10 Jan 2018 03:22:10
The only assessment here to be made is of Danny Murphy's mental state. Even a YouTube highlight reel will show Keita is nothing like Henderson in style of play. Keita is pacy, energetic and drives the ball from midfield to attack in no time at all. He is everything Hendo should have been.


7.) 10 Jan 2018 03:28:05
Murphy is a pundit who used to play football but has little to no knowledge of the game as a whole and who is paid to make statements that stir debate - take his guff with a pinch of salt.


8.) 10 Jan 2018 08:43:14
Thanks lads, i suspected he was sprouting for click bait. I too think keita can be something special with the right guidance. Not quite a gerrard replacement but gerrardesque in terms of box to box ability. Hopefully he regains his drive when he joins in the summer.


9.) 10 Jan 2018 08:48:26
I'm not an expert on football. I don't know how anywhere near as much as most people. But one thing I can tell you for certain - Danny Murphy as a pundit is a waste of oxygen, a man who spouts pseudo-controversial nonsense because he knows it will get him and his publications mentions and that he has absolutely nothing of greater value to add.


10.) 10 Jan 2018 09:16:10
My God listen to you all. He had an opinion and its the wrong one, but he's a good pundit, is actually very sharp and knowledgable, and had a cracking career here, we cluld definitely do with him now as he's twice the player can is. Show a little respect.


11.) 10 Jan 2018 09:58:05
Murphy clearly doesn’t watch any football outside of the premier league.


12.) 10 Jan 2018 11:08:08
"Keita isn't as creative as Mascherano"
"Keita is like Henderson"
"Liverpool need a 20+ goal striker" (ignores Salah's 17 goal tally)

He has lost the plot.


13.) 10 Jan 2018 11:10:16
ChampMan it's not just one bad opinion but three, and they are all baffling.


14.) 10 Jan 2018 12:25:25
From what I've seen which is admittedly limited, he's been nothing special to watch, being rather badly disciplined and hasn't shone in their team. That is purely what i've seen of the 5 or 6 games I've tuned into.

Is he actually as good as everyone on here seems to think? Honest question as I haven't watched him week in week out. Anyone on here watch the Bundesliga regularly?


15.) 10 Jan 2018 15:01:04
DeanW, I can gurantee you that Keita is special. He is much better than our current midfield options. Keita had the likes of Barca, Arsenal, Bayern all interested in his signature. Whilst this season he has been rash and not quite hit the performances of last year (which was a very high bar anyway) he is still young, cleanly doesn't want to be at Leipzig (which is not an excuse) and to be honest still has put in some great games this season. In short, I wouldn't worry.

{Ed025's Note - hes quality mate..


16.) 10 Jan 2018 15:29:23
Nice! Thanks for the reply tsteen!


 

 

24 Apr 2017 10:54:08
With the papers now saying real will target coutinho to replace modric how likely are we to keep hold of him this summer especially with Barcelona also waiting in the wings.

I doubt he will stay especially if we miss out on top 4 which is a real possibility if the players do not wake up and smell the opportunity in front of them. They should be super focussed and switched on at this stage of the season considering the prize at the end of it.

No doubt you are all as frustrated as me at the result yesterday but realistically what could klopp have done about it. Aside from those that started who else could he have brought in aside from the kids.

The only thing i could queation is If either of our centre backs were not 100% he maybe should have considered Gomez instead of playing injured defenders. But if you go out on the field you are able to play to even that's not an excuse.

Its a coming

1.) 24 Apr 2017 12:39:15
The 'papers' and you clearly haven't seen Modric or Real play for some time. He hasn't played as an attacking midfielder or a winger, the two areas Coutinho plays, since 2010. If Real want him, he'd be replacing James Rodriguez, Bale or Isco - not Modric.


2.) 24 Apr 2017 15:20:16
Well if they are selling and modric and replacing him with coutinho then maybe there happy with casmerio and kross in the centre and will add a new number 10.

Or thag coutinho could play alsongside one of them like everyone on here has suggested. (Playing in our cm)

{Ed002's Note - People need to get out of the mindset of like-for-like replacements.}

First pochettino said he wanted real to beat us because we are their main rivals, now gary neville says he wants us to lose so united fans including himself don't endure a season of hell as he put it.

My question is, if the shoe was on the other foot would you root for spurs or united purely because they are english or would you hope they got stuffed by real?

Its a coming

1.) 16 May 2018 17:13:44
I'd hope both teams would get hammered. None of this English team nonsense.


2.) 16 May 2018 17:15:40
If it was United I'd want them to get smashed, if it was any other English team I'd be rooting for them, well apart from Everton but they'd never get to such a level ;)

I just can't stand anything about RM so I'd be for most teams to beat them but as I say just not United.

{Ed025's Note - pint of bitter for salah me thinks..


3.) 16 May 2018 17:29:20
Personally I'd find it harder to stomach if it was United but pretty much any other team I would be supporting. I was hoping Arsenal would go further in the Europa League. Just think its good for English football in general.

In terms of comments made by Poch and Neville. just goes to show how successful our season could become if we win it. Pretty unclassy comments to make publicly on both sides.


4.) 16 May 2018 17:37:45
Couldn’t care less about any other team. They have their own fans.
It would make it a bit less tasty if bitters like Neville and Poch were rooting for us. Bring on the haters 💪.


5.) 16 May 2018 17:43:45
Totally agree with Ron. I concentrate on one team and one team only.


6.) 16 May 2018 17:47:36
Anyone apart from United. Let’s face it, there’s no danger or Spurs or Arsenal winning it anyway. Man City have never won it, and Chelsea have only won it once! All small clubs in the Europe game! YNWA 5*****.


7.) 16 May 2018 17:52:51
Hate both spurs and Man Utd so I’d want both to lose. Now if say Leicester had got to the final in their campaign I’d have supported them. Fully get where Neville is coming from he’s a die hard manc. Poch though, us winning the final should have no direct impact on him so it shouldn’t matter.


8.) 16 May 2018 17:56:40
I would support a British team in Europe, but probably wouldn’t watch the game.

Even *spit* Man U.

Got to admit I was happy for them in 1999, and it was paid forward in 2001 when we not only beat Alaves, but sucker punched arsenal late on too.

Karma 😌.


9.) 16 May 2018 17:57:44
I'd want Spurs to win purely because Ramos annoys the hell out of me.

{Ed0333's Note - I always want our Premier League rivals to lose any major game. Arsenal, Spurs, UTD, City, Chelsea unless they were playing each other of course. And then I would only want Arsenal winning because I loved Aresene Wenger and City because they are buying heritage, status, success and history and that doesn’t really count.


10.) 16 May 2018 18:10:27
In the years gone by, I would have supported Spurs but not anymore. I don't know wethers that's a reflection of Spurs actually being a rival these days or wether they're just less likeable. Would never support Man Utd. As LeeWils elegantly put it "None of this English team nonsense" (But I'm also Irish and that's one of our national tagline's)


11.) 16 May 2018 18:15:13
I'd root for any of the English sides in Europe except for Man United.

{Ed025's Note - jealousy is a terrible trait to have..


12.) 16 May 2018 18:32:30
Doubt he's particularly jealous at the minute Ed025 haha.

{Ed025's Note - not winning the title since the formation of the premier league could make some jealous eamon, especially as united have won it numerous times mate..


13.) 16 May 2018 18:33:00
I wouldn’t worry. Every time I’ve watch United they’ve been smashed on Europe. As for Spurs.

Can you actually mention Spurs and Europe on the same breath?!?! 😜😜.


14.) 16 May 2018 18:52:00
Not really bothered, lose all interest in cup finals if we aren’t involved.
I think most English opposition fans want us to lose as they simply fall further behind our UCL haul if we win, again 😝
I feel the same about Manchester United winning the prem coz that would keep increasing the gap on titles head to head.
Think everyone has their own personal favourites, don’t mind and dislikes. I don’t mind City, Arsenal, Everton, don’t like Chelsea coz of Abramovich, Utd - rivalry, Spurs - ‘83 league cup final scumbags with weapons attacked us.
Managers - Wenger respect his achievements, Conte ditto, Pep - plays the victim a bit too much for me, Jose - enough said, Poch - ok, Moyes - key ring troll, Allardyce - horrid, Rafa - legend, Dyche - neutral, Pulis - see Allardyce 😝, Pardue - see Pulis, Puel - decent unassuming, Ranieri - legend, Hughes - hated him as a player, gone down in my estimations since he started managing 😜, Houghton - alright, Bruce - fathead, Warnock - see Donald Trump, Rodgers - fake tan and teeth aka Ray Winston in “sexy beast” 😁, Uncle Wroy - nice man, not top drawer for big club.


15.) 16 May 2018 18:53:37
I wouldn’t support a rival so I’d definitely support Spurs.


16.) 16 May 2018 19:35:08
I'd prefer United to win it than Spurs because at least they've earned their right to be arrogant. Spurs have won 2 trophies in my lifetime and their fans act like they're serial winners of stuff and deserve tho be named among the elite clubs because they are based in London and get a half decent support. Not for me. they're only going down from here I reckon. In fact I'd choose United to win over any of the London clubs. Like I said, at least they've earned respect, over a long time.


17.) 16 May 2018 19:43:40
Probably not a popular opinion but I’d root for Everton it’s always good for the city and it means more playing/ beating your neighbours when they’re doing well, Spurs I wouldn’t mind but I couldn’t be bothered with the media aftermath of how Kane did it all on his own. Arsenal I’d cheer on, but at the minute to stop madrids domination I think as a one off I would have supported any English team bar United, seen a few videos of their ‘fans’ I’ve seen speaking about us in a vile manner (I know it goes both ways) .


18.) 16 May 2018 20:03:25
I don't turn the television on unless Liverpool (or Barcelona or Brazil) are playing.


19.) 16 May 2018 20:28:53
I only support Liverpool. Could not give a toss about the others, why would I? I don’t think it’s bittter to not want your rivals to win big things.

{Ed025's Note - its a bit twisted if you ask me kate, its like people who hate lottery winners because its not them, did you not enjoy leicester winning the league or wigan winning the cup?...its nice to be important but its also important to be nice..


20.) 16 May 2018 20:56:24
Ed0025.

Anyone who knows the history of Manchester United will not be jealous.

{Ed025's Note - im not sure about that drogie mate..


21.) 16 May 2018 20:57:09
Quality as always Ed025, class mate. My favourite time was the mid to late ‘80’s when Liverpool and Everton were great rivals and had enormous respect for each other, sadly that may never be repeated with modern attitudes but for the record when we couldn’t win I was made up and proud if Everton did instead. JFT96 was all the mightier for the steadfast support from our blue brethren and I sincerely hope and believe had the roles been reversed we would have done the same for the blues.
Gutted that it’s a sign of the times, the friendly Derby is becoming a thing of the past. Tons of respect for Everton, in the last 20 years our dual declines have coincided- would be brilliant if we could get back to exchanging league titles, FA cups and European titles again.
Remember Wembley singing Merseyside Merseyside together, emotional stuff.
Sod the rest, congratulations to Tranmere being back where they belong, let’s hope Everton and Liverpool get to where we belong also YNWA ⚽️👍.

{Ed025's Note - halcyon times indeed koppite, red and blue scarves together and enjoying a pint afterwards whatever the result set us apart from the rest, sadly thats not the case these days which is a crying shame mate, there are still a lot of good people out there as the JFT96 has proved but the minority of knuckle draggers spoil it for everyone im afraid...very sad..


22.) 16 May 2018 21:18:30
Not at all Ed. I support Liverpool. I was pleased for Leicester when they won the league, of course. I haven’t had their fans giving me grief throughout my life tho! It’s all personal opinion. 👍🏻.

{Ed025's Note - it is all about personal opinions kate and there are rivalries in all sport but it gets pretty nasty at times, hating people because they live in a different town or support a different club seems pathetic to me mate, but maybe its me being very old and thinking it would be nice if people could just get along..


23.) 16 May 2018 21:53:45
Haha my head was in the clouds thinking of Kiev Ed025, their league results in the decade gone by are certainly something to be jealous of. I was thinking more in terms of the current season (if the final goes our way) as well as the style of football currently being played.

{Ed025's Note - you are head and shoulders above united this season imo eamon ..


24.) 16 May 2018 22:02:37
Drogie, not following you mate? Liverpool and Manchester Utd have incredible history. The fact that Shanks and Matt Busby were mates, busby played for Liverpool and Alex Ferguson has attended our UCL games this year tells you the enormous respect the clubs have for each other, it’s why liverpool v Man Utd is considered the game of the season by both clubs yet we have Everton and City on our door steps.
Bill Shankly was asked by two board members of liverpool if he wanted to manage the biggest club in England and his retort was “why has Matt Busby resigned? ”
Mutual respect where it’s due, we don’t like each other but we are the biggest clubs in the uk and both in the top 5 of European football, add Barca, Real Madrid and Bayern to make up the other 3.
All those sides can have unsuccessful periods but the name still reverberates around Europe whenever and wherever they play, the world too.


25.) 16 May 2018 22:58:29
I'd cheer for Everton if Liverpool were not involved. I don't understand why Liverpool/ Everton fans wouldn't support the local clubs. Maybe because i don't live there I guess.


26.) 16 May 2018 23:15:14
I think it's pretty sad for English pundits to want a spannish team to beat an English team. If it were spurs or even utd I would go for them over the foreign team.


27.) 16 May 2018 23:21:53
I wouldn’t support anyone else as it could effect us in future. If Spurs or Utd won the CL they would be a bigger pull for top players which would effect our chances in the league and CL moving forward.
For that reason I’d hope for any English team to absolutely humiliated in the CL final so no decent player would go near them with a barge pole! Also hope it would make some of their own players want to leave too!
It’s all about Liverpool for me.


28.) 16 May 2018 22:32:28
I agree with the majority of what you have said on this thread Ed25 mate but I'm not bitter mate. I just don't like United BUT I respect them because they are a top club and will always be up there, I don't think many of their fans will want us to win the CL and its the same from our end if they was in the final.

I agree about everybody should just get along, totally mate, some take it far too far. Every team has rivalries, it's part of it but some just take it to that other level. Some forget it's a sport we love and fail to enjoy it and would rather go off the deep and and be stupid about it. I can't stand United but they've been more successful then us and deserve credit! all I was saying is I couldn't root for them if they was in the final. That'd be impossible for me I'm afraid mate lol.

How are you Ed25, I imagine your pretty damn happy tonight after today's news?

{Ed025's Note - im happy that the fraud and charlatan has finally been shown the door salah, he should never have been hired in the first place but the club panicked, now they need to get the right guy to move us forward but this is everton we are talking about so im not holding my breath. rivalry is fine in sport but some take it beyond that and it turns into hatred and thats when the problems start mate, im not mother teresa and asking for world peace or nothing i just wish that fans could come together as one...and pick on milwall.. :)


29.) 17 May 2018 08:46:43
It would depend on whos playing for me. If any other english team were playing juventus and buffon was still there i would probably want juventus to win so he could tick it off his list. Unless it was Everton.

Everton were always a second team of sorts for me growing up. Its pretty sad that they have lost a lot of their identity and i hope they get the right people in going foward. It can easily happen. Its happening to man utd at the minute but the difference is they will always have the money for any complete overhaul that is needed. Everton are a giant that fell asleep and nobody has woke him up. But if i lived in liverpool maybe my thoughts might be different. But being in northern ireland when we were kids growing up any utd and liverpool fans i knew nearly always had everton as a second team. As you grow older the second team thing kind of fades a bit i suppose.

If liverpool aren't in a final i usually root for the underdog. But the way football has developed its almost mandatory to have a bit of feelings of hatred these days even if you try not to. For example i despised chelsea when jose was there and most certainly never wanted them to win anything they were in. He was good value when he first came to england but he got on the nerves rarther quickly.
United i always hated because fergie had them ticking over like a juggernaught. But i always respected their dominance with a kind of awe.
Spurs have become a bit of a gobby kid for me. Does a lot of mouthing off but never backs it up.
I would most certainly have been supporting arsenal in either final this year if they had been in it just so wenger would have had that great send off he deserved.

For the most part though i really like to see the underdog take the trophy. there's a kid of satisfaction seeing that happen.


30.) 17 May 2018 07:22:25
The club did panic Ed25 it was quite surprising to see him appointed, they should've held out a couple more weeks and got the right man but at least it's happening now mate. Who would you like to take over?

If I was an Everton fan I think I'd be wanting Silva in but I'm a Liverpool fan so I hope he doesn't go lol I think he'd do some magic there.

{Ed025's Note - i would like unai emery myself salah but that looks unlikely but silva or fonseca would do nicely mate..


31.) 17 May 2018 20:15:44
Yeah any of them three would suit you well Ed25, I'm sure your going to have a better season next season. Good luck to Everton mate. Rivalries aside they deserve some good luck!

One last question, do you see Rooney staying, if so, are you happy about it? to me he's a big lump of lard and an expensive one at that and would be best for your club if he was moved on? He's lost it now and needs to go somewhere like the MLS or China, if somewhere will have him of course.


 

 

14 Apr 2018 09:02:26
I hear that kane is appealing to the womens hockey assoc for a goal scored by alex danson in the commonwealth games bronze medal match. Im confident he will be successful!

Its a coming

 

 

13 Apr 2018 13:20:50
I have seen comments regarding not wanting to face roma now etc. my thoughts are if you win the champions league you are the best team in the comp. So it doesn't matter who we face, if we are good enough we will win and we have to give this team credit. To get to the semi final is no mean feat and this is a very good team.

I won't make any predictions as im becoming superstitious in my old age.

Its a coming

1.) 13 Apr 2018 14:04:59
You don't have to be best to win the comp.


 

 

23 Jan 2018 09:08:06
That result was inevitable, i did point out last week that we needed to replace coutinho's creativity in the middle or we would struggle against teams that park the bus. Everyone was on a high after the city game and dismissed it. This will continue unfortunately as out midfield players are very limited.

We also can not do anything about it until maybe after the world cup when players become available. Just have to knuckle down for a bumpy second half of the season.

Its a coming

1.) 23 Jan 2018 09:11:06
Agreed. I said the same but someone got on their high horse about how we should use kids and have enough.

They’ve had enough time to plan for coutinho leaving. There is not a valid excuse given the time they’ve had to not replace coutinho with a decent passer at least.

It could well cost us top 4, which will make keeping salah difficult unless he has a bad second half to the season.


3.) 23 Jan 2018 09:18:00
Things that annoyed me last night:
1) No players on the post for a corner 😔
2) Both teams were too predictable but we looked clueless and they looked organised.
3) Klopp’s inability to change the game and pose a different threat to Swansea.

I’ve no problem with Karius, he had little chance with the goal. I’ve no problem with Lallana, he’s coming back from a long-term injury. I don’t care who is captain, it doesn’t give the other players an excuse.


4.) 23 Jan 2018 09:24:07
What does it say to the players on long term contracts that Can is captain Ron? That being said there isn’t many candidates for captain at the moment.


5.) 23 Jan 2018 09:31:51
Klopp seems to like to rotate the captains armband when Hendo is out. If it was Can every week I agree with you. Migs was captain not long ago now he’s been publically told he’s not a starter for the rest of the season.
I don’t think the players get too hung up about it.


6.) 23 Jan 2018 09:41:07
Spot on, Ron. The whole team was poor and this by the way, has NOTHING to do with Cou leaving or him not being replaced. Cou played in the dross games at Spurs, WBA, Burnley we played this season too so that rhetoric or talking point needs to be put to bed. It would not have mattered who played, if the whole team showed a lack of calmness, lucidity and composure in their build up play, we would not have won. The Cou thing needs to stop being used as a talking point cos we get better results w/ o him than w/ him or does that suddenly no longer count?


7.) 23 Jan 2018 09:46:08
To be fair Ron I don’t think klopp had too many options to change the game. Our bench was the weakest I’ve seen it in a long time. Solanke is young and a little short of confidence, Ings just coming back after 2 years out, Lallana is still getting fitness back. We still need strengthening on our forward line, I would get rid of Ings and sturridge and bring 1 player in. We also hardly ever seem dangerous at set pieces - we need someone that can put the ball into the right areas consistently as we will struggle in open play against these type of teams. I think if we did that we would create more chances than just having a creative player that could be hounded out of the game.


8.) 23 Jan 2018 10:26:49
Swish, why get rid of Origi if you have no options on the bench? Origi offered something different, a physical presence who could hold the ball up, an arial presence and pace in behind. Origi could bully defenders like he did against Dortmund. He could also score screamers from outside the box.
Our squad is too one dimensional.


9.) 23 Jan 2018 10:53:29
Ron, agree ther origi was a good option from the bench. I guess with Solanke coming on board he may have been given assurances about being part of the first team squad. Our dithering on sturridge seems to have cost us again. Would love to see origi back.

Big big shout out to our match winner ed01 and his Christmas lights which are not coming down until after the champions league final. 😉.

Its a coming

{Ed001's Note - they are staying up until the day we lose, so hopefully they will never come down ever.}


1.) 14 Jan 2018 20:16:35
Week on Monday Ed001. Swansea away is most defiantly a banana skin : (.

{Ed001's Note - I hope not.}


2.) 14 Jan 2018 20:42:43
Ed001 how great was firmino today mate? can't wait until he learns how to finish! ( 17 goals and counting) one of his best displays in a Liverpool shirt imo.

{Ed001's Note - obviously it was a fluke all 17 times ;-)


3.) 14 Jan 2018 20:53:36
such a calm and cool chip. Bobby makes us tick up front, I'd be signing him long term too. Such a wonderful player.


4.) 14 Jan 2018 21:35:38
I hope not many people appreciate bobbys efforts every game because we need him forever. Anyone who understands football will see what he does! I watched the game with 2 curt fans in a pub, sadly bit in the city anymore so can’t go but they didn’t get begat he does, which is his secret weapon! He’s the best in world at what he does! World class.


5.) 14 Jan 2018 20:57:18
In Ed01's prematch preview, Ed018 predicted 4-4. I thought, "what's s/ he thinking? ", then Ilkay scored for 4-3 and I was wondering if s/ he was a prophet.
Thank God we held on for the win. Onwards and Upwards.

{Ed018's Note - I had a hunch it was gonna be a shootout. Thought at first I had it right with Aguero’s header at the end of the match}


6.) 15 Jan 2018 03:16:19
Wait til he scores 1 that changes the outcome of a game, it's ok scoring the 4th in a 4-0 win. Oh! 🤔 my bad. 🤣.

Wouldn't that be a risk though, yes we have ings and solanke but neither are pulling up trees and we would be stuck if one or more of our three remaining first team attackers were injured. This is of course moot if that top top player signs this window but i believe it when i see it as they say.

It would make sense convincing de vrij to sign a pre contract for the summer. Akanji is not quiet ready and very similar to vvd.

Plus we will need to look for a top class keeper and possibly another midfielder and attacking midfielder if we don't get one this window. So saving money getting a free but decent defender for the summer makes sense. Disclaimer: i know its not really free with signing on fees, agents fees etc.

Its a coming

I seem to remember a lot of people including myself tbf questioning the signing of robertson and look how that turned out.

Not saying all klopps signings will turn to gold like robbo and salah and mane and vvd and well you get the picture. But i am willing to give his targets the benefit of the doubt until i see what his plans for them are.

Cellabos is a very good player and i see people making a lot of assumptions about where and how he will play. Had it occured to some that keita will be the dlp. maybe not but i will not assume either way.

Dembele, top notch, not a pulisic but close in terms of potential. Fekir is dreamland stuff and the one i see as the most unlikely. Trakowski, never seen him play so no judgments. Butland is a good keeper with the greater potential than karius to be very good just needs time to regain the form of a couple of seasons ago. People forget keepers bloom late and he has time on his hands. Good signing for me, two young keepers helping to raise each others game.

For me depth has been our downfall in terms of the prem, these players add that and if they come off will actually make us real contenders for a change. The key for me would be keeping salah and adding fekir, with keita coming in too my mouth and loins are positively moist.

Cb and couts replacement for me. karius can get another season unless replaced by top quality like an oblak.

I would try and tempt dembele who is not signing a new contract at spurs too. If not him i would go for seri who would be an excellent partner for keita.

Cb i would go for someone tough like koubilay and couts replacement ideally fekir or malcolm.

But likely we will get none of the above.
