Hey Eds,

Just a quick question from me - How come Origi was left out of the squad yesterday? Not complaining at all as I think he has some way to go, but was wondering if it was injury related or a case of Klopp just didn't fancy him in the squad with Benteke already on bench?


{Ed001's Note - I believe he was just rested.}

1.) 01 Nov 2015 15:42:35
We have a midweek trip to Russia. Origi was rested because he started 4 games in 2 weeks, and looks like he felt it. It was good management. I expect him to start against Rubin Kazan on Thursday.

2.) 01 Nov 2015 16:18:51
I read somewhere that he stayed behind for extra training.

3.) 01 Nov 2015 18:39:51
He's not premiership material in my opinion.

4.) 01 Nov 2015 19:47:10
Jcw. You're basing that off of how many games you've watched? Just curious as I think he's been impressive in a few games. He hasn't scored but that will come.

5.) 01 Nov 2015 21:56:12
He's young and only just started out in the PL, he may have struggled a bit so far but very early days and he's also shown he has potential. Let's take him for for what he is shall we and cut him some slack.

I think he's a very good prospect with the right coaching.

6.) 01 Nov 2015 23:57:29
20 years old, from a different league, English not his first language; bought by a manager that has left the club and didn't know to set-up his own team (this sounds like a piece from Gladiator) . then slaughter him after 4 games playing a different style with a new manager.

I'd rather see what he's like at the end of the season (Rodgers called him world class - Origi didn't! ) .

7.) 02 Nov 2015 01:38:47
Remember he got named in the worse players team of the season last year, nowhere near good enough for what lfc want to achieve, reminds me of David Ngog and that says it all!

{Ed001's Note - that's unfair to put that in there, he got the votes as the fans there got on his back because he was moving to Liverpool, and they felt he had gone all big time. Origi is nothing like Ngog, you might want to watch them more.}

8.) 02 Nov 2015 11:05:43
Biggest problem with Origi is his movement, which can be worked on. He is quick and can go past a player, feel he would be much better on the wing while he learns his trade, which will give him the opportunity to see what movement a striker should have to supplement his midfield. Feel he could benefit massively from this as Henry did. Could be a gem but has a lot of hard work ahead of him to get there.

9.) 02 Nov 2015 11:10:52
he was 2nd in the goal scoring charts behind the new lad for man utd and look what they paid for him at that age, so if he had a bad season but finished 2nd behind Martial (sorry for the spelling ) i would like to see him with a good season, he is a young lad who is adapting to a new country and league, even the most experienced players who come to the prem sometimes need a season to get used to out league, and from what I've seen he has not done too bad considering all that, as some one said i will like to see him after a full season for us.

10.) 02 Nov 2015 11:38:40
It was only my opinion, I watched a lot of his games last year, everyone he's played at Liverpool and just don't think he is premiership material. He must understand that if Ings, Sturridge and Benteke are available then he won't be starting, UNLESS he uses the time he is getting now to prove different, its ok saying he's come from a different league, different country etc . so do lots of PL players

As I say its only my opinion and I hope to be proved wrong and hope Klopp see's what you see in him.

On another note: I was pretty much ridiculed on this site at the end of last year for predicting Klopp would be manager by Xmas . 1-0 i dus think ;)

11.) 02 Nov 2015 23:53:08
Think there's a big difference between saying someone isn't up to liverpook/PL standard right now and saying he isn't Premier League material (ie never will be good enough) .

I'd agree with you he won't be getting games if Studge, Tekkers or Ingo fit, but that's not to say he won't make it. We just need to give him time to grow and adapt, he has all the right attributes.

I also agree with someone above mentioning he would benefit from given a shot as a wide forward/winger for a bit. think with his ability to go past a man, and pressure off to score himself, he could really benefit.

12.) 03 Nov 2015 02:12:11
In defence or origi he's going to look lacking compared to the other strikers we have, all have years of experience more than him, slightly barring Ings. I wonder if he'd suit a 2 up from system if we had another for striker or firmino just off him.



09 Jul 2015 06:49:31
Great site Eds and thanks for keeping us all constantly updated!

Just a quick one, now Berahino has woke up and no longer with award (sterling agent) is there any chance we could be interested in bringing him to the club? Certainly has the pace, potential finishing and age we seem to be looking for?


{Ed001's Note - it seems unlikely this window.}

1.) 09 Jul 2015 09:48:25
I think this would have been a good deal for us. He's only 21 and got 20 in 45 games last season, his stats are improving as he's getting older, and I like his movement. Seems a better fit than Benteke, but looks like that is the way were going.

2.) 10 Jul 2015 06:21:50
For Berahino, the agent was only part of the problem.

Wow! So yeah we lost yesterday but I am so proud of the lads!

Why? Because aside from the fact that with a bit more luck we could have come away with a result last night, just look at our Christmas run in.

Before the 11th December we were 2 or 3 points behind City with by far the harder run in.

Fast forward to January 4th having played Napoli (not relevant for league but still great result), Man Utd, Wolves, Newcastle, Arsenal and Man City and not only have we only lost once, but we won all the others, are now 4 points clear! By the way all of this in just 23 days so another reason for the players putting in a shift last night in our hardest game of the season.

Simply put would rather have City's record since December 23rd or ours?

Time for calm and bouncing back yes. Time to stand and be proud of our players? Absolutely! YNWA.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 08:49:38
Nice one Jimjam782, We are not the Best team in Europe or the World but we have a decent team who are Top of the league and who play very exciting football for us, we have a manager who is trying so much to win the things we all want, players are only human and make mistakes but let's hope they learn from them and bounce back on another fantastic unbeaten run .
Please get behind the team we all have negative opinions at times but we are Liverpool Fans so Please Support them . YNWA.

2.) 04 Jan 2019 09:25:18
Good positive post jumjam 👍🏼
If some one said top of the league by 4 pts and through the group stages of the CL at the start of January I’d of bit their hand off!

3.) 04 Jan 2019 10:10:16
Great post, OP. Red Tag, I disagree that we are a decent team. We are a CRACKING team, make no bones about it. Did you see the game last night? That was like two heavyweights going at it and City won via split decision and nothing more, overall. Both teams showed that they are by far, the two best teams in the PL and two of the very best in Europe and the other PL teams are so far behind, it is not even funny anymore.

Now, City may have shaded the game last night BUT they got the type of breaks we have been getting of late this season. I mean, the Origi winner vs Everton looms large right now and so does Allison's save in the same game. To me, this was just a bump in the road and NOBODY with any ounce of intelligence believed we would go undefeated and if we are to lose our first game in 21, I'd rather it be vs City than say Leicester, Palace or Chelsea, all the teams City lost to. Let us know who we are and celebrate it while being humble and hard-working and focused in every game going forward. Up Da Pool!

4.) 04 Jan 2019 12:57:40
Not the end of the world.

When I looked at the fixtures I was hoping we would be 2 points behind city going into this game to stand any chance.

Not quite how it turned out so. was always a big bonus.

Fergie mastered big loses and we got to do the same.

City got 3 tough games in the next 5 I think.

We got to win all our 5 before going to old Trafford. that's how you deflate them, ecactly how fergie did it.

I remember beating united, gaining 3 points and before you knew it they were an extra 5 points ahead as we were complacent. They got angry.

What's happens next determines champions. Not a single loss.

All to play for.



07 Dec 2018 16:28:05
So over the last few months of us having this amazing start to the season it has been amazing to see how our defensive resilience has transformed.

There has been a lot of talk around how we arne't playing the free scoring games of last year etc.

I have to admit when I've been watching the team I have been trying to work out what hasn't been as prominent this year, and actually against Burnley i think it hit me.

In a lot of games this year, aside from being more defensively sound/ smart and not just launching forward, it seems that we are playing more long balls into the top 3, particularly down the wings. Makes sense right as a release and with the talent we have up front.

However against Burnley, Keita reminded me how last year (with AOC and sometimes others) we had a bit more confidence in running at defenders from our central midfield. Seeing him do that midweek, and the Burnley defenders start getting pulled out of position reminded me of something (that in my opinion) we haven't been doing as much of this year. Yes we have had Shaquiri in spurts and he's been great, but that drive from midfield really disrupts defences sometimes as they want to come to tackle but also scared to leave the side of Mane/ Salah/ Firmino.

Hoping that this is the start of our midfield 3 playing with a bit more confidence in driving forward and speed in play - of course in a sensible way!

This is all just my opinion/ observation and I can't ignore that we are in an amazing position so can't really fault the team. I just feel we will get even better, and see players like Firmino get back to his best when we have those driving runs from midfield.

Love the club, love the players and super proud. Regardless of the above they are doing an amazing job already!


1.) 07 Dec 2018 16:52:38
Spot on that mate! I noticed it to one against Burnley. Keita played very well and caused a lot of problems.

2.) 07 Dec 2018 16:53:51
Lets hope Keita can outperform alisson eh?

3.) 07 Dec 2018 17:12:25
Liverbird it won't happen. Allison was called Messi of goalkeepers and that's a lot of credit to messi, Allison should be called Sir King Kenny of Goalkeepers.

{Ed025's Note - he has not messed up yet CH, he will of course and when he does i will be on him like a bun on a baloni sandwitch.. :)

4.) 07 Dec 2018 18:01:46
Keita will be the Messi of Middlefields!

5.) 07 Dec 2018 18:15:29
Ed025 what is your sauce for the baloni sandwich.

{Ed025's Note - tahini mate.. :)

6.) 07 Dec 2018 19:38:41
Before you have any sandwich, you’ll need to wipe all that egg off your face first Ed025. Bigging up Pickford against Alisson.
Sorry Ed but a derby win’s a derby win and a bit of ribbing is on the menu for a while!

{Ed025's Note - and fully justified juicer, if it was the other way around i would be giving your keeper terrible pelters mate, i never bigged up jordan though all i said was there was not much between them...i must have been talking about pickfords ears.. :)

7.) 07 Dec 2018 19:45:21
Have you forgotten the fox's away? Ed25.

{Ed025's Note - it was a bit of a faux pas ace but nothing compared to pickfordgate mate.. :)

8.) 07 Dec 2018 20:26:37
Ed25, All I want for Christmas is ORRRRRIIIIGGGIIIII!

{Ed025's Note - then your easily pleased brover, hes a poor mans any carroll mate imo..

9.) 07 Dec 2018 20:51:20
Exactly right. Spot on op. We have missed a cm who will play direct and make direct runs. Keita did what the ox was doing last season last night. He was fantastic. So unlucky not to score. He is going to become phenomenal for us.

{Ed025's Note - lets not go overboard just yet swallow and all that.. he is a quality player but thats his first top performance since he signed, when he has put a string of them together then that is the time for the plaudits mate, im not trying to rain on your parade..just bringing a modicum of reality..

10.) 07 Dec 2018 21:19:30
but when he scores, its a big one .

11.) 07 Dec 2018 21:51:20
Ed25, you'd better be nice to him cos as far as you and your lot are concerned, the jokes write themselves at this point. For me, it's not that I am easily pleased. I always liked Origi and can remember he was in flying form until one of you blue noses butchered him in the derby cos he could not get anywhere near him. He still came back and scored 11 goals the season after.

As for being a poor man's Andy Carroll, you make a valid point. Both have succeeded in ruining the blue noses' lives in derbies while playing for LFC and Origi has made it his goal (pun intended) to punish your lot during Derbies. Like I said, all I want for Christmas is ORRRRIIIIGGGIIII!

12.) 07 Dec 2018 23:44:04
andy carroll can sprint? I can compare origi to a poor mans torres but still an ok player plus we don't have another player like him with his speed and stature.

13.) 08 Dec 2018 01:15:40
I hope he scores first against man utd!

14.) 08 Dec 2018 12:39:06
Ed25 is just sore cos one of our players he gives so much stick to, ruined his derby day AGAIN and not for the first nor second time. So much egg on so many faces out there and I would be sore too if I had that much egg on my face. #OOOORRRRIIIIGGGGIIII!

{Ed025's Note - that surprises me brover, because its not like your lot to go overboard about your players is it?....oh yeah it is.. :)



19 Jul 2018 11:27:05
Hey Eds and everyone,

Not the biggest poster on here but read a lot and have to also shout out to MK Scouser for some of your recent articles too - great reading!

Assuming we get Allison in I think we can all agree it will be an amazing window. My question lies more on your opinions around the impact signing multiple players can have on a team (i. e. before they gel etc), and just when your thoughts on when too many signings can actually cause a team's progression to plateau? Spurs come to mind when bought loads after selling Bale.

I'm not suggesting this is the case with our window, just with a few key signings it got me thinking that the spine of the team may look different so will we see a transition effect whilst they get used to Klopps way or will he bleed them in slowly.

My thoughts (not that they are worth anything) is that Klopp will (and should) gradually bleed them into the 1st eleven (i. e. not start the season with all of them in the team necessarily), so they can learn the team way. History also suggests he would do this with some players (maybe not Allison for obvious reasons), but I remember with Ox for example he was keen for him to learn how we play and improve fitness etc.

Would be great to hear your thoughts on how you would approach it if you were Klopp?


{Ed002's Note - It has typically been an excuse for Liverpool supporters when they fail to win anything - year of transition.}

1.) 19 Jul 2018 11:39:50
Ed's thanks for your response, and I certainly believe it's a poor excuse or basically a smokescreen excuse for the real reason. Embarrassing to use that as a blame for poor performance solely - so i wasn't going to use it ;)

Would be interested to hear though (in general) if you think there is a potential for teams to suffer at all if they didn't manage the integration properly - i. e. don't change half of the starting 11 overnight.

I would think that transition isn't an excuse in this case, if anything if the results aren't there because everyone is new, then the fault lies more at the manager for not managing the situation and integrations properly over time.

{Ed002's Note - I had forgotten about "smokescreens" - that is something else exclusive to Liverpool supporters.}

2.) 19 Jul 2018 12:03:17
With the exception of Becker, we have no need to start any of our new signings if management takes the opinion that they have not fully integrated with the squad and it's style/ tactics. Whether or not you believe this sort of thing to be a problem, with our new signings this window it would be a problem of our own making.

3.) 19 Jul 2018 12:07:50
Cheers mate. Appreciate that.

I reckon Keita and Alisson will be straight in the starting XI as regulars from day one. Fabinho I suspect will be slowly introduced. I'm basing this prediction on Klopp's comments. He noted that Keita was really effective in the system because he played a similar style at Leipzig, but suggested that Fabinho might need longer to adapt. Shaqiri is not likely to be a regular unless there is an early injury.

4.) 19 Jul 2018 12:25:29
No excuses this season with the squad we now have, should be going the distance with City for the title and another good run in Champions League.

5.) 19 Jul 2018 12:38:28
I'd say Fabinho and Keita are starting midfielders v West Ham, probably along with Milner. Attackers unchanged, no new face in the back line, and Alisson in goal.

Should Fekir come (or Vida) they will surely be in preseason mode, along with Hendo and Lovren for most of august.

Can't see a problem, can't see an excuse for dropping points.

6.) 19 Jul 2018 13:30:51
I think Alisson, Keita and Fabinho will all get straight into the squad.

Of the regular midfield starters last season, Can has left, Ox is out injured long term, Lallana is coming back from injury and could still leave so we are only looking at Milner, Wijnaldum and Henderson.

Milner and Wijnaldum went missing in games far too often last season. They had some great games in the Champions league but over the 38 PL games they were inconsistent. They make great squad players but as starters we have better, especially now.

Henderson is generally good every game and as our captain its hard to say if he would be taken out of the team. But he also struggles with injury and Plantar Facitis is not easily recovered from. In order to recover properly you need to rest the foot completely and as a premier league footballer long periods of rest are not often available.

So I can see Both Fabinho and Keita being thrown in, and if Fekir comes he most likely will start too.

7.) 19 Jul 2018 12:13:36
Ed002, are you suggesting that “year of transition” is just a smokescreen because the club has unveiled too many players at once? 😉.



27 May 2018 01:19:16
Sonnot the best result for me, but in some ways it's times like these that can make a football club and it's fans.

Quite simply YNWA let's remember that.

Regardless of anybody's opinion on Karius future, he is a Liverpool player, he helped us get to the final and we, at this time more than ever, need to show our support to him.

Imagine how he must be feeling, and to have the balls to go over and apologise to all the fans I thought spoke volumes about his character.

I'm not Interested in whether he should be our number 1 next year or not, I'm interested in us supporting our players in their darkest times. This for me is one major reason why I am a LFC fan - because of our humility, our togetherness and our unequivocal support in the hardest times.

Let's support the lad and empathise, and respect he immediately took accountability for mistakes.

Not a dig at anyone so far in their comments, I just wanted to say the above in case there are those that just come all guns blazing for Karius, when sometimes we have to remember the core values that make us as a football club so very special and distinctive. It's now when YNWA really matters.




19 Jan 2018 09:47:13
Hey Ed's,

Hope you're all well, and thanks for keeping us fans so informed over this transfer period - I can only imagine how frustrating it can be to be asked the same questions over again!

To that point I hope this hasn't been asked, but couldn't find the answer when searching.

I was curious about if you had any insight into where Klopp/ the club feel Woodburn's best or natural position will be? Last season when he played he seemed to form part of the front 3, however if I remember correctly in pre-season he was playing more in the midfield 3?

Appreciate he can probably play both, but is he more ideally suited to one of those roles?

Thanks in advance.


{Ed001's Note - he is expected to be able to play either but primarily in the midfield 3.}

1.) 19 Jan 2018 10:42:59
Thanks for coming back so quick!

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

2.) 19 Jan 2018 10:56:02
I think on the left side of our midfield 3. Long term replacement for Lallana.

3.) 19 Jan 2018 10:59:38
Defo got more potential in the midfield 3 for me.

On top of that in my opinion an injury to just one of Costa, Hazard, Moses or Alonso and their backups aren't too impressive. They would have to be extremely lucky to get through the season avoiding all injuries. A very good team but their time will come to an end when the luck runs out.

On a positive note now is our chance to stay just 1 point behind cuts, and create a 3 point gap between us and city!
