Hi Ed,

What's the plan for Ward. Is there any clubs willing to take him on loan.
Another player poorly managed in my opinion. He should have been allowed to stay on loan with Huddersfield for another year and gain that experience as a guaranteed number 1 in the premier league. Now he is 3rd choice.

Jimmy boy

{Ed002's Note - He stays at Liverpool but has made his frustration clear as he felt he was given guarantees.}

1.) 21 Aug 2017 18:54:22
yes. Klopp should have handled this better.

@ 24 he should be playing and had this opportunity which could have improved him further.

Now he his sat disgruntled as 3rd choice to Migs and kaurius.

If it was De Gia or Buffon or any top keepers it might make sense in being 3rd choice.

But behind Migs and other guy it is.


2.) 21 Aug 2017 22:11:23
Klopp messed u[p there. he should have just let him go on loan or just sold him, end of.

3.) 21 Aug 2017 23:07:28
That's right lads. Klopp should just do whatever the players want. That would work just great.

4.) 22 Aug 2017 02:25:43
I reckon we could see more of Ward as the season progresses. Too early to be accusing the manager of messing up, just yet.

5.) 22 Aug 2017 08:27:50
Shame for Ward that, he should have been loaned back to Huddersfield for this season to have a full season (injury permitting) in the Prem, it does nothing for his development sitting in the stands, poor decision imo.

6.) 22 Aug 2017 11:55:31
Depends how it goes he may turn out to be no better than Karius he may prove to be better. Loan at Huddersfield this season would have answered that one.

7.) 22 Aug 2017 13:19:02
It's a long season and there will be changes. Two weeks in looking at sixty plus games. He will get a chance and we'll see how he performs but he has to be patient.

8.) 22 Aug 2017 15:40:36
If it is a choice between Karius and Ward as to who goes out on loan, I think it should be Karius.
They are the same age, born on the same day, and Ward has been out on loan, has represented his country, and done extremely well in pressure situations like the play off final. Surely it is Karius that is in need of regular games?
For me, Ward is ready to challenge Mignolet.

The club need to make Malak a club scout in Egypt 😉. He claimed in 2014 Salah would become one of the top 5 players in the world.
MK scouser, APOLOGY needed for Malak. joke.

Jimmy boy

1.) 20 Mar 2018 15:16:49
I vaguely remembered the discussion enough to be able to find it on the search function. Wow, what an embarrassing and nasty tool I was in 2014. I can only ask Malak and anyone else I spoke to like that to forgive me. I was a different person back then in an abusive relationship struggling hugely with depression. Doesn't excuse the way I spoke to some posters though. I'm genuinely disgusted with myself. I can't even remember writing those things. In fact I can't remember much at all about those years of my life and now I've read that, thank god! I'm so sorry though.

I've not seen Malak post for a long time but if you are still reading buddy, you showed me! I never dreamt Salah would become this good back then. I also apologise in general for the way I behaved as a teenager. Really was not necessary. I'm sorry for the Eds as well who had to audit my vitriol. I can't believe that I wrote that. I'm deeply ashamed and I hope people can see I'm not that person anymore.

You are 100% right Jimmy, I really do need to apologise for that. Not for being wrong per se, but for the complete and utter lack of class I displayed.

2.) 20 Mar 2018 15:51:51
Looks like you have turned out a decent chap mk. We all make mistakes and it's very good that you can and have improved yourself as a person.
Big high 5 from me.

3.) 20 Mar 2018 15:45:52
Sorry to hear of your past mate. Onwards and upwards my friend. I was jesting though.

4.) 20 Mar 2018 16:02:23
it is called growing up MK and you definitely have so kudos to you.

5.) 20 Mar 2018 16:21:17
Thanks for accepting the general apology lads. I know you were joking Jimmy, but I couldn't read that back and not apologise. Couple of things I said clearly crossed the line and ultimately, Malak was right about Salah and I wasn't! Having said that, nobody else was on Malak's side either so fair play to him for standing up to the masses. He literally said that by 24/ 25 years old, Salah would be in the top 5 players in the world. Psychic 👊.

6.) 20 Mar 2018 18:09:07
Kudos to malak and to MK scouser, reading through some of his posts, that guys recommended we look at Jorginho when he was playing Serie B football as well!

7.) 20 Mar 2018 18:31:25
I was trying to remember who the chap was who recommended salah and a few other Egyptian lads. I thought his posts were really good at the time.

8.) 20 Mar 2018 18:41:39
Good for you MK, I’ve battled mental health issues since the recent deaths of both my parents and I too at times lash out on these pages (think I’m still barred from the live match chat forum) .
At the risk of starting a new #metoo movement I’d also like to apologise to Ed’s, Reds and Mancunians that I may well have offended in recent months, to be fair I think the Ed’s have either moderated or deleted the inappropriate posts I’ve submitted.
Thanks MK for being brave enough to apologise, it’s inspirational to see you are through the other side now bud, I do enjoy your posts.
Love the site, a real escape from the daily grind.
Best Wishes All,

9.) 20 Mar 2018 18:44:15
Nos, BR did want Jorginho when he was at Verona but it did not come off and it seems like our scouting team have has never kept their eye off him. Will he sign tho? We will have to see.

10.) 20 Mar 2018 19:40:43
We need to create a page for Malak - 'Malaks future stars'
Massive fair play to you MK, it takes a real man to admit his past mistakes and to own them. Too many people these days refuse to be corrected or challenged and it's refreshing to see people capable of learning and growing.

{Ed025's Note - i echo all of that TIA mate..

11.) 20 Mar 2018 20:34:28
I don't really know what to say but MK fair play mate, life can be bloody difficult at times. Malak you seem to know your stuff, looking forward to who you recommend next.

Ed025 cheers mate your a top editor.

12.) 20 Mar 2018 20:35:48
Thanks everyone. I really care about how I'm perceived by others; perhaps too much at times. So I'm thankful people could forgive what I said. I had no idea I was like that.

Kopite68, it is a very long and hard journey mate. I'd say it is only really the last 6-12 months I've felt truly better after about 7 years of suffering. I'm really sorry to hear about your loss by the way. My advice to anyone suffering with mental health issues? Go to see a counsellor. They really are amazing people. No amount of medication can replicate the help they provide. Well done for overcoming your own pride to apologise too mate.

13.) 20 Mar 2018 20:59:58
MK, you seem like a true gent and fantastic at analysing football. Thank you for your contributions to this site.

Now reading our fans apprehension against Salah of 2014 is just hilarious. Ahh well that's why managers get paid millions and fans don't!

14.) 20 Mar 2018 21:02:50
MK past is the past, we all go through different journeys in life mate and for you to overcome them, is respectable. No matter who you were a few years ago, credit has to go to you for who you are today because you seem like a top fella mate! Glad to hear your no longer going through the troubles you once went through.

15.) 20 Mar 2018 23:02:52
If we sign Jorginho then I ll call you Mr. BRover! 😎😎🙄.

16.) 20 Mar 2018 22:50:28
MK thank you sir, I wholeheartedly agree about the counselling. I’ve had 2 lots of 6 sessions after each loss and I only wish I’d reached out for support about 7 years ago, I got myself into financial problems and ended up paying back debts of £33K over 5 long years. I’m debt free now and appreciate all I have, my wife and son, my wife’s family, my brother and sister and I see each other more than we ever did.

Life has a way of delivering perspective, I envy those who have it without having to experience loss before realising what really matters, good health and close family.
I love my football, it has pretty much been the only constant in my life, quite ironic that, just like life, I only realise now we have experienced the barren years just how magical my first 15 years as a Liverpool supporter really were.

I took that for granted, as a kid all I knew was us winning everything. I don’t mind admitting in 2005 when we won it for the 5th time, I shed a reminiscent tear. It was so emotional to experience that feeling again after 21 years!
MK you are a gentleman and a scholar mate, good health to you and yours.

17.) 21 Mar 2018 05:47:52
Big hugs bro. 👍.

18.) 21 Mar 2018 07:42:07
MK has always been sound when I've been on. He is one of the posters whose opinion I value and I always read his posts.

Women and love can mess you up big time, fall in love, throw all your eggs in some rickety basket and end up with no omelette. Your not the first and you won't be the last, you always seem proper grounded to me mk, so you came out good in the end bruv. Y. N. W. A x.

19.) 21 Mar 2018 08:13:34
I'm really glad to read that kopite68. Family was actually my main coping method. I became a dad 15 months ago and I know it is cliché, but it changed me almost overnight. Massive respect to you though. It is a terrible illness because it is invisible to the naked eye.

Thanks again lads.

20.) 21 Mar 2018 09:35:00
Just to add to this post a little.

I know exactly how bad it can get when your mentally unwell. 6 Years ago I lost a parent and saw some pretty brutal things doing so which resulted in me losing it, I didn't think there was a way out at all, I had flashbacks daily, insomnia, I drank a hell of a lot, nightmares, zero confidence, anxious, health anxiety the lot. I'd never seen anything quite as brutal as I had done back then so it hit me like a ton of bricks.

It came to a point where I was waking up needing a beer I thought it was helping take the edge off but it stopped working so I'd have more, quickly, still not working which resulted in panic attacks and tons of hospital visits, I thought it was the end for me.

I reached out to family and they couldn't understand why I was the way I was (they didn't see what I saw) and they constantly told me to just 'snap out of it' like it was that easy? It's not as easy as that at all infact at the time it seemed near to impossible.

Point is to my post is I'm alright now, I got off the drink, I had people telling me not to stop drinking immediately because my body was so used to it but I had a bad panic attack and said that day 'I'm done drinking' and I kept to it, went to doctors got some medication (anti depressants) which in all honesty I think was a placebo but they did the job at the time.

Before I went through all of this I'd of never understood anybody going through it, it's so easy to brush off when people say they are depressed etc if you've never been through it before. Now I know and I wouldn't wish it on anybody, I admire people who can get their life straightened out after going through such an illness. So credit to you MK and Koppite, it's not easy yet you got out of it which really is admirable.

Take care to all! Anybody going through depression, please remember, there's always a way out!

Sorry for the long post.

21.) 21 Mar 2018 11:42:43
Cheers Salah. Thank you for sharing by the way. I hope you are feeling much better now, and about the future! Nobody can see the emotional scars it leaves on you, but we carry them for life. Learning to live with it is the hardest part. I wish you all the best on your continued road to recovery. Whatever you do though, Don't just stop taking the anti-depressants. Consult your doctor and they'll wean you off them. I just dropped them and the withdrawal was really aggressive.

22.) 21 Mar 2018 13:40:35
Cheers ED25.

Just whilst we are on mental health -
There is an incredible guy named Johann Hari who I strongly recommend people either listen to or read his books depending on your learning style. It completely opened my mind to the truths behind mental health and I believe every single person on the planet should have access to his findings, not only to help people with mental health, but also for the rest of the world to learn about why it happens and how to deal with it in a progressive, humane way.

Don't worry if you don't want to post the link eds but here is a link to his phenomenal insight just incase. I know we always discuss the effects of mental health in our beloved game and think this is more relevant than ever before. I know there is a chance people won't even see this as it's so far down in replies so I'd be happy to repost it if you find it worthy, totally understand if not.

His book: lost connections - uncovering the real causes of depression

23.) 21 Mar 2018 13:56:50
Thanks for the advice re the Meds MK as I’m starting to feel like I want to start to reduce them now. Salah reading your post struck a chord with me and I do hope you are coping ok now.
We are all different so whilst I agree about the benefits of counselling and medication I try to steer clear of giving direct advice as we can only really experience our own personal circumstances and reactions.
Please don’t feel I am belittling serious issues as I have been in those dark paranoid places where you fear for your job, your relationship and your own mortality, however as I start to feel more stable and secure I have to use humour to get me through, examples; I’ve been married twice and have a grown up offspring that I’ve not seen for 17 years, not through my choice. I’ve already outlined the recent challenges to my mental wellbeing, in this time I also had our dog pass away, devastating my son who was only 9 at the time. I have to joke with people that I’ve a full country and western album as my life story just waiting to be recorded! I think one of the tracks would be the 49 year old orphan!
You have to see the funny side of yourself and how melancholy life is, very hard to do when you are in the depths of despair however.
Thanks for the therapy lads, hope you don’t charge by the word for it though Ed’s 😜.



19 Mar 2018 11:45:52
Ed, Apart from Salah what do you feel is the most positive thing from our squad this season. For me it's Robertson. He started off with us like he felt he did not belong or good enough to be here. But now he is performing consistantly and his confidence Is growing game by game.

Jimmy boy

{Ed0333's Note - The positives I take from this season apart from Leo Salah is the camaraderie the players are exuding. The smiles are genuine, the 3 musketeers are passing to each other at the right time and not being greedy which wasn’t happening earlier on this season. Maybe this is because they know each other’s game now and are bordering on telepathy let’s hope so.

It would be remiss of me to just choose one positive from such a formative and exciting season unraveling before our eyes so I’m adding a few more. I’m really liking the emergence of Joe Gomez I think he’s going to be a beast for us (if he can just get the measure of those long diagonal balls that he misjudges the flight of tho..grrr...) Also praise be to Bobby omg what a player, it seems as if he’s emerged from the shadow of Coutinho and become some extra terrestrial footballer. I would personally polish his dentures for life just to keep him at the football club for another 4 or 5 years he is instrumental to what we are trying to achieve and it’s imperative he stays for a long time.

Finally let’s all hail JURGEN NORBERT KLOPP! This man has made watching my team exciting and pleasurable again. I’m certain we’re on the cusp of something salubrious & magnificent. Klopp will put us back on that friggin perch and we won’t have to keep looking back at those halcyon days, he will have us believing in the now and the honey soaked future. We truly are lucky to have him.

1.) 19 Mar 2018 23:30:24
Good read Ed. Particularly agree on the vibe within the squad. I've noticed that players on the bench are celebrating goals with enthusiasm (post Studge), which is a real tell. Agree with Gomez on those diagonal balls also : ( I said a while ago I wouldn't swap Bobby for any other player in the league. Not that there aren't equal or better players, just that he brings something to the way Klopp wants to play that I struggle to see in any other individual. I do have hope for silverware, preferably the league, under Klopp, but just as much I love our style of play. Give me a 3rd place finish and this footy over 2nd and Mou's drab displays any day.

{Ed0333's Note - Abso-friggin-lately Burkey couldn’t agree more.

2.) 19 Mar 2018 23:53:38
Summed it up, Ed 333. Now let's go win the Champions League.

{Ed0333's Note - Klopp really deserves a Champions League RedLorry.

3.) 20 Mar 2018 04:24:18
Two for me:
1 - we lost a very talented and influential player in Coutinho and it hasn't slowed us down.
2 - Oxlade-Chamberlain. Yes, he is still learning and adapting, but he has much more to him than I anticipated.

4.) 20 Mar 2018 08:07:57
I love Klopp and we are truly lucky to have him. We were actually really lucky for when we got him. He could have easily picked any club that had a vacant manager position be it united, psg, chelsea even madrid but he choose us and we were a mess.

But ultimately and historically you are judged on trophies (it is how it is) and i hope for his sake as much as ours that he wins things with Liverpool including the all important premier league title.

5.) 20 Mar 2018 12:48:57
There are a hell of a lot of positives to this season, the way pundits say we CAN lift the ucl being among them but for me, the biggest positive is the way liverpool have learnt to see games out, especially since Xmas and Vvd. Gone are the days of being 2/ 3 up and still biting our nails wondering if we are going to win. February saw us see a few games out from 2 up

The Ox salah vvd and Robertson all highlight what a good recruitment department we have now and I hope people will be less quick to write new signings off like they did with robbo and the ox (and some even salah)

6.) 20 Mar 2018 12:51:59
Great overview ed, love it. 😃.

{Ed0333's Note - thankyou I appreciate your kind words.

7.) 20 Mar 2018 16:40:43
IMO I am happy that teams respect and fear us enough to park the bus. Only city get the same level of respect and it's a testament to how feared our attack is. I think we are a locksmith away from the league.

8.) 20 Mar 2018 19:12:27
Great read, Ed. Agree with all your points. I have always said it even when we struggle at times, that Klopp is the best thing to happen to us since Suarez left. I was shocked that he agreed to take on the job when we were 11th, could not score goals and could not keep them out. In fact, I remember how were about to play Norwich and Villa under BR and I could not tell you if we were going to get a point. We got a point vs Norwich and barely beat Villa. Yeah, that was the level of frustration and lack of hope before Klopp arrived. I agree, it was a heavy lift that season with injuries and squad evaluation BUT above all, Klopp gave us hopew. I remember him saying that it was the thumping we gave City at the Emptyhad (4-1) that he knew something had clicked and that was when he knew our team had figured out his system.

Fast forward till today, and here we are, on the move again. I can sit back and watch LFC play knowing bar a disaster or anomalie, we wiare capable of winning every game we play. We are now that good that for us to lose or draw, we have to screw up or the refs have to play a blinder for the other team, as we have seen several times this season. Klopp has built a team where they go into whatever game they play, not hoping BUT expecting to win. All that, in just two years.

Klopp gives us the BEST chance to win a title of any kind, end of story and mistakes be damned. We are on the verge of something really great and maybe quicker than we know it so let's all get behind the manager and our boys cos they are the ones who have brought hope back to this club and its supporters and tho sometimes, they may screw up, they have been though it all with us and deserve our respect.



08 Mar 2018 13:18:40
I have to say Son is one of the best players in the league. And if we were to ever lose Salah or Mane I Would love to get him. Top class player Imo.

Jimmy boy

1.) 08 Mar 2018 13:24:05
He played well last night but Sane is a level above. If Mane gets back to last seasons form he will be even a level about Sane.

2.) 08 Mar 2018 13:47:14
Son would thrive in our system.

3.) 08 Mar 2018 13:54:14
Very good player. I think it would be impossible for us to buy players from Tottenham. First we are 2 similar sides, players leaving there will have the same problems with Liverpool that made them leave Spurs in the first place, mainly wages and trophies.

4.) 08 Mar 2018 14:07:04
Son is a fantastic player, but he's not at Mane, Firmino or Salah's level for me. Like Wijnaldum, Son is absolutely useless away from home. That alone is enough for him to not be one of the best players in the League. He wouldn't get in Liverpool or Man City's best XI. Mane, Firmino, Salah, Sterling, Sane and Shirt I are all better players.

I would take him for competition though. He is definitely better than Ings, Solanke, Origi, Kent, Ojo or Sturridge. After all, it is a squad game nowadays and over a 60 game season he'd get plenty of game time.

5.) 08 Mar 2018 14:11:08
New phone auto corrected Aguero to shirt 😂.

6.) 08 Mar 2018 14:33:12
Have to disagree mk. Son is a fantastic player. He will probably be 1 of the 6 shortlisted for player of the year.

7.) 08 Mar 2018 15:07:23
No chance Mad, none whatsoever.


8.) 08 Mar 2018 15:07:56
Son has 2 goals in 19 away games. Yet at Wembley, he has 14 goals in 23 games. (Though it's less relevant, he also has 1 assist away, and 8 at home; assists are not always conclusive, but in this case they also back up his fragility on the road) .

He has 1 goal against Liverpool at Wembley, 1 last night against Juventus at Wembley, and 1 in each group game against Dortmund.

Aside from that though his goals have come against West Ham, Huddersfield (×2), Southampton, Brighton, Watford, Rochdale (×2), Apoel Nicosia, Crystal Palace, Stoke and Everton. All of these goals were scored at home apart from the 1 against Watford.

I'll let you draw your own conclusions. It all points towards him only being a consistent goal threat at home against weak defences.

9.) 08 Mar 2018 15:28:42
That's a brilliant point MK. I too think Son is a beautiful footballer but if he can't do it away from home then that's a problem. It must be pretty daunting playing in front of a load of skin heads and lager louts ingerland fans (ye who throws the white plastic chair while getting sprayed by a hose) you know what I mean? The majority of the fans are honest, hard working family men/ women but there are some nasty fans at certain clubs. I think he'll get over that, he is young. The hand shake thing is cringe worthy, makes me think he lives in a fantasy world, a fantasy that is broken when reality kicks in, away on a Friday night at Burnley. ;)

{Ed001's Note - is that what it is or do Spurs as a team create less opportunities away from home because their form has been poor on the road in comparison to their form at Wembley?}

10.) 08 Mar 2018 15:46:45
Mane has 7 goals in 14 away appearances (and 5 assists), and 7 goals in 17 home appearances (and 2 assists) . So he is only 2 goals behind Son in 11 less appearances, but also consider that Mane had an appearance clocked for about 30 seconds against Chelsea, and 3 of Son's goals came against Apoel Nicosia and Rochdale. In contrast, Mane missed both games against Maribor, and Liverpool didn't draw Newport and Rochdale in the cups, otherwise Mane would probably be ahead of him on that front too.

Mane has scored against Sevilla, Porto (×3), Arsenal, Man City and Burnley. 7 goals against 5 different decent teams. His other 7 goals did come against poor opposition though in Spartak (×2), Watford, West Ham, Crystal Palace, Stoke and Newcastle. It is pretty clear to see Mane is a consistent goal threat irrespective of the opposition quality or what stadium he is playing in. Exactly half of his goals were against good opposition, and exactly half were at home.

I respect your opinion mad max, but I think Son is hugely over rated. 16 goals in 42 appearances, pales in comparison to Mane's 14 goals in 31 appearances, even before you look into the context of those goals. Once you delve deeper into their goalscoring records, actual minutes played, injury records, who they scored against, where they scored etc it only goes more in Mane's favour. Son's clearly a very good player, but one of the best 6 players in the league? I'm not sure about that. He's probably only the 5th best left forward after Mane, Sane, Sanchez and Hazard!

11.) 08 Mar 2018 15:55:19
Kane has scored 20 of his 35 goals this season away from home though Ed001. So is it Spurs creating less? Or is it just that Kane is the only player in their squad with the bottle and composure to score away from home or against top quality defenders/ keepers?

It kind of makes a mockery of Son that his only goal against a team in the Premier League top 6 was not only at Wembley as Liverpool capitulated, but he was being marked by Matip and the goalkeeper was Mignolet.

I think Spurs are a team of bottlers, spearheaded by Kane who is world class luckily for them. Son is a part of the problem, and not just a victim of it in my opinion.

12.) 08 Mar 2018 16:29:22
But was you not one of the many posters Adam which said that spurs would have woeful form at Wembley.

13.) 08 Mar 2018 16:45:47
Son is a very good player and a two footed one! He is in no way similar to Mane or Salah. Son is more technical than speed! He is not a winger after all! He would thrive under Klopp. c'mon people drop him and have a look at Bailey at Leverkusen. What a player!

14.) 08 Mar 2018 16:45:28
It wasn't my original opinion P1, but I certainly agreed with the almost universally accepted prediction they would struggle there. I'm pretty sure most people thought that though based on their embarrassing showing in last season's European games.

Do you have anything valuable to add to this debate or are you here to troll me because I agreed with somebody else on a totally unrelated subject 8 months ago?

15.) 08 Mar 2018 17:31:38
Thomas Lemar anyone! Just a thought.

16.) 08 Mar 2018 16:31:58
Good points by both ed01 and mks, it's probably a bit of both. In fact it almost certainly is. I think spurs are having a purple patch but I don't think it will last. They desperately want to finish top four and are fighting Chelsea for that spot. And us I guess, even utd and possibly even arsenal, though probably not. We will see if they have the bottle, it would be crazy if roman abramovic's billions didn't qualify for European Cup. That would be 1 qualification in 3 years. Wow.

17.) 08 Mar 2018 20:02:59
Do you not also think it's the way spurs are set up to play it's all about Kane, where as at Liverpool mane and salah benefit from the space which firminho creates. Put Kane in the Liverpool team and no doubt salah won't get half the chances he's getting now as the space won't be there. Put son in the Liverpool team and he might also benefit from firminho. Just look at the ox he's not to far off his goals and assist total he got at arsenal already in his first season.

18.) 08 Mar 2018 20:20:49
Markp08 you are right regarding sane could possibly be the best in the league. Man city different team with out him.

In my opinion Sane is unreal what he could become is frightening.

20.) 08 Mar 2018 20:43:27
Son is a brilliant player and would thrive in our system. Whether he is better than any of our front three is a diff. issue.

21.) 08 Mar 2018 21:49:39
No doubt He's a good player Brover. I Don't think he takes us to another level though. He'd be on our bench if everyone was fit. He needs to get over his issues away from home first and foremost or he'll always just be the forward equivalent of Wijnaldum.

{Ed025's Note - he would come in for mane at the moment MK for me..

22.) 08 Mar 2018 21:53:51
Acered - but you couldn't put him Salah's class.



19 Feb 2018 12:20:59
Hi Ed sorry if you answered already but where is it the club sees Trents long term position being?

Jimmy boy

{Ed001's Note - it's ok, I have only answered it 100 times so easily missed. He is a midfielder.}

1.) 19 Feb 2018 14:28:49
Is that it Ed, thought it was a lot more mate lol :)

{Ed001's Note - I was just talking about today....}

2.) 19 Feb 2018 14:32:35
He will never make it as a midfielder, will always be a back up right back i'm afraid! Xxx.

3.) 19 Feb 2018 14:09:24
Is that cm or winger? Midfield makes me think cm but his fb role makes me think he is a winger.

4.) 19 Feb 2018 14:43:03
hardy, the only thing he is lacking is muscle and that comes in time.

5.) 19 Feb 2018 15:08:18
Lol about right Ed, hope your having a good day mate!

{Ed001's Note - it's ok mate, just wondering how I will last until Saturday without a Liverpool game!}

6.) 19 Feb 2018 15:12:45
He’s unlikely to make it as a right back, he’s done incredibly well filling in there especially considering his age but it’s quite obvious his future isn’t there.
Really hope he makes it as a midfielder and with us, it’s nice to have at least one local in the team.

7.) 19 Feb 2018 15:21:13
Hardy, interesting take. what knowledge/ info do you have to draw up that conclusion? I've followed him for a few years and I couldn't commit to such a statement like 'will always be back up right back' he's only 19, has more technical ability, vision and intelligence than most of our current midfielders, in my opinion the lad needs to gain a bit more strength and work on his defensive game to be the type of midfielder we crave, and low and behold Klopp has spent this season working on his defending at right back. Talk about writing a player off too early.

8.) 19 Feb 2018 16:14:00
I think due to the lack of quality fullbacks nowadays, I can easily see TAA ending up as a RB who fills in occasionally in midfield a la Joshua Kimmich and Sergi Roberto.

9.) 19 Feb 2018 16:23:23
He'll be a right back. If he carries on he'll go to the World Cup.

{Ed025's Note - not this one obviously, but maybe a future one if he keeps improving 8..

10.) 19 Feb 2018 16:21:52
I feel your pain Ed1, it was a boring weekend, I can't stand these long breaks in-between games, roll on West Ham, I'm going to score an hat trick against em!

{Ed001's Note - I am dreading the next international break, they always really drag!}

11.) 19 Feb 2018 16:28:34
Well said TIA19 the lad has been brilliant. And shows a great attitude and plenty ability to go with his determination. If keeps improving, bulks up abit and has luck with injuries. Trent will be a great player for Liverpool.

12.) 19 Feb 2018 18:46:11
Could easily go to this one if he kicks on for the rest of the season, alternative to Walker if you need a bit more going forward.

13.) 19 Feb 2018 19:00:23
No chance beef, Gomez might go as a CB/ RB flexible option from the bench.

14.) 19 Feb 2018 23:43:11
Great to have a local lad too. He is pure class. Look at the players we have and in a European game he is given the free kick. He must be good in training for the boys to give him the free kick. And he scored, what a beauty. I think he just brilliant, people keep calling him a kid but he is pretty much an established premier league player and champions league player. Will he make it? He already has.

15.) 20 Feb 2018 00:54:17
Yeah, I agree, well said tia19.



15 Feb 2018 17:42:35
Who would be the ideal partner beside VVD for next season. Surely gomez and Trent will rotate at RB.

Jimmy boy

1.) 15 Feb 2018 17:51:12
lasacelles from Newcastle I think that sorts us. With a top keeper of course.

2.) 15 Feb 2018 18:00:27
Lovren and VVD seem to have some sort of understanding between them and I believe having Mignolet not flapping all over the show is calming our defence down a bit.

But yeah, Klopp probably going to sign another CB this coming summer whic will likely have to see one go. Matip just does not seem to be up for it. On his day, Lovren can be up there with the best but his inconsistency has proven time and time to get the better of him.

Give Trent time and he could develop into a mean machine RB. Might save us a whole lot of money in the long run and you can see he is full on wanting to improve everytime he gets onto the pitch. He will still make mistakes as he is still learning his trade as a footballer but by far our best option at RB at this point.

3.) 15 Feb 2018 18:54:24
Lascelles is probably the best English centre back around. Really good defender, a leader and someone who actually takes responsibility as well as dishing out bollockings where needed.

4.) 15 Feb 2018 19:22:28
Maxlfc was thinking that myself it's funny over the last few games how everything seems a bit calmer at the back maybe it spreads through the team?

5.) 15 Feb 2018 19:50:02
I can’t see Gomez or TAA being right back on a long term basis myself, if a decent right back can be found this summer I would expect one to come in.

6.) 15 Feb 2018 19:52:44
Koulibaly of Napoli.

7.) 15 Feb 2018 19:07:55
I thought lovren was outstanding last night. He is clearly our 2nd best cb. Lovren would get straight into that Newcastle defence I'm not sure the same can be said about the Newcastle lad. (admittedly I haven't seen as much of him as I have of lovren)

8.) 15 Feb 2018 19:22:58
Anyone think Gomez will make the England World Cup squad?

9.) 15 Feb 2018 20:34:12
Lovren or Gomez, Keeper is the priority.

10.) 15 Feb 2018 22:26:41
Lovren was always a good defender with someone leading him. At Saints it was Fonte, at LFC he was best when playing with Sakho. Matip is not a leader, in fact I think he shys away a bit. Klavan is decent but not much more.

Van Dijk will get the best out of Lovren. It remains to be seen if that will be good enough. 🤝.

11.) 16 Feb 2018 00:15:53
Personally I would ditch Matip, move Gomez to CB and buy a new RB to compete/ rotate with TAA provided Clyne leaves as expected. (You never know though, we all thought Moreno was a gonna) That gives us VVD, Gomez, Lovren, Klavan at CB and TAA and another at RB. Combined with Karius/ new GK that leaves us short a real powerhouse in midfield off what I expect to be a damn near top level team.

12.) 16 Feb 2018 02:45:01
Agree Westwood, VVD and Klavan to cover LCB, Lovren and Gomez at RCB, TAA plus a new recruit at RB. That’s a very sound defence.

{Ed0333's Note - or get rid of Klavan and get a better player

13.) 16 Feb 2018 10:06:01
Kostas Manolas from Roma.

14.) 21 Feb 2018 16:51:44
TAA won't stay RB.

Sorry aoe. His Ego was the problem. He was treated very well all through under age football and it was felt he was not ready to step up to his first full cap, justifiably so.
