Besiktas in for Mignolet according to Sky. No secret he will be sold if a buyer can be found. Any of the Ed’s aware of an approach? Thanks in advance.

JoeyTheRed

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}


1.) 27 Jul 2018 15:21:27
Good, hope he finds a new club and is happy there.


2.) 27 Jul 2018 15:30:38
Thank you Ed002 :)


3.) 27 Jul 2018 15:36:37
We seem to have a lot of links to Turkish clubs when it comes to potential sales - is it just a coincidence or do we have links there?

Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - They will be searching for loans from the English sides who over price players. Besiktas have also spoken with Everton, Arsenal and Swansea; Fenerbahce has spoken with Stoke, Everton, Chelsea (about four players), Liverpool (about two players) and Swansea; Galatasaray has spoken with Manchester City, Chelsea, Swansea, Leicester and Everton; Trabzonspor has spoken with both Liverpool and Chelsea. It is the way it is.}


4.) 27 Jul 2018 15:53:44
Thanks Ed. That was my first post after following these pages for years so I appreciate your insightful response.


5.) 27 Jul 2018 16:30:21
The Turkish league seems to be a bargain bin for failed Prem players.
Good luck to Migs though.


6.) 27 Jul 2018 17:42:30
But do they want a loan or permanent?


7.) 27 Jul 2018 17:52:37
Swap with Vida?


8.) 27 Jul 2018 18:42:59
Yeah good luck to him, it never worked out here at Liverpool because he wasn't good enough but he'll probably do alright in Turkey!


9.) 27 Jul 2018 19:54:11
He just reached a level he never improved from. Never truly thought he was good enough for us but wish him
well.


10.) 27 Jul 2018 20:48:37
His flaws have been made obvious, but let’s not forget that he also did many good things in his time with us, from his debut penalty save to his form which played a part in us getting back into the CL two years back. He always tried his best, shame he couldn’t kick on and we should wish him well.


11.) 28 Jul 2018 01:14:24
Yep I'm actually a little sad Migs never managed to bring his all around game to the required level, I will always remember some stunning saves he made, and I think I recall 5 or 6 peno saves, probably more? Not sure but maybe some were pre-season, anyone got his stats handy?


12.) 28 Jul 2018 14:56:46
Simon Mignolet: Has saved more penalties (6) than any other goalkeeper since the start of the 2014/ 15 Premier League season.


 

 

17 Jun 2018 00:41:26
Quick question to the Ed's. After going through the search engine I see Ed001 and Ed002 have mentioned interest in Clyne, Lallana etc. just wondering if there's been anything a lilttle more serious or enquiries lately for any of our players that we're hoping to sell. I realize it's still early days, cheers in advance Ed's. Appreaciate all the work you all do on here, I'm on this page everyday!

JoeyTheRed

{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of. Might be a case of them becoming late options due to the injuries they have suffered meaning they are not first choice.}


1.) 17 Jun 2018 10:54:06
Thank you ed!

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}


 

 

20 May 2018 11:42:41
Hi Ed’s, any truth to all the nonsense regarding Anderson Tallisca? Can’t find anything on the search engine. Cheers in advance.

JoeyTheRed

{Ed001's Note - his coach said he was moving club and that is all, there was nothing in regards to Liverpool.}


1.) 20 May 2018 12:30:13
By 'moving to rival club' I believe he means any club in the premier league and not us specifically.


2.) 20 May 2018 12:43:30
More of a Jose signing to me lads. I don't think it's us.


3.) 20 May 2018 13:08:56
Thank you Ed001. Thought as much!


4.) 20 May 2018 16:18:46
It's because the quote referred to him being a cenk tosun rival next year and the rags have decided it must mean Liverpool. I agree with you guys he looks like side show bobs replacement.

{Ed002's Note - The English side in negotiations for Talisca is not Liverpool.}


5.) 20 May 2018 16:28:23
I think it's wolves if I'm not mistaken.


6.) 20 May 2018 16:48:27
Manchester United I heard.


7.) 20 May 2018 17:49:35
£35m to United. Mourinho is turning them into Pulis era Stoke.


8.) 20 May 2018 18:02:51
Is he any good?


9.) 21 May 2018 21:11:37
Haven't they learned from the other Anderson they had.?


 

 

07 Mar 2018 00:35:13
Just a random question to any of the Ed's. Do you know if it was the plan to play Gomez and TAA at Rb this season and interchange them so often, or if Clyne was fit would he be starting and his injury rather forced Klopps hand? Thanks!

JoeyTheRed

{Ed001's Note - Klopp has been looking to replace Clyne for a few seasons, the plan was to buy a right back and sell Clyne.}


1.) 07 Mar 2018 07:58:46
I'd sell matip, move Gomez centrally and then see how lovren performs for the rest of the seasons. Depending on whether he plays well or not, then buy a CB to replace him, or buy a right back and have Gomez rotating CB.


2.) 07 Mar 2018 08:30:00
Good plan Ed1 mate. I don't want to sound too harsh but I don't want to see Clyne play for us again lol he's no good and never was. Somebody a few weeks ago tried to tell me Clyne was a good player, I have no idea what games they've been watching of him.


3.) 07 Mar 2018 11:47:05
He’s no improvement on Glen Johnson. Said so at the time and nothing has changed my opinion.


4.) 07 Mar 2018 12:14:44
Exactly my thoughts too Gmac.


5.) 10 Mar 2018 01:50:12
Does having Trent and Joe doing so well remove the need for an addition once Clyne is moved on?

Ed001, do you know much about this new throw in coach we’ve hired? And why, aside from the obvious. Cheers in advance.

JoeyTheRed

{Ed001's Note - just that he is well thought of. Most European teams employ one it is just the brits are backwards as usual.}


1.) 27 Aug 2018 10:56:34
Is this like set plays from throw ins?

{Ed002's Note - Thomas Gronnemark dedicates his time to teaching players to take better throw ins - with the primary focus on long throw ins. He has been working Midtjylland, a Danish Superleague side and a couple of rather more average clubs and Ipswich Town in the Championship but his pretty outrageous claims about additional points to be gained has come to nothing. He has been trying hard to get a leading English side to endorse his work and has for the past three years trying to sell his services to Chelsea and Manchester United. It seems Liverpool will look to use him on an ad hoc basis and he will use that to try to leverage work at other leading clubs.}


2.) 27 Aug 2018 11:11:54
Thank you for the great insight as always Ed!

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}


3.) 27 Aug 2018 13:29:48
Don’t like the idea of one guy coaching us, then going to another club.


4.) 27 Aug 2018 14:43:11
From what I'd read Ed002, while he holds the record for the longest throw in, his coaching wasn't geared towards long throw ins, but more towards triggering an attack after the throw in and also avoiding taking throw ins that put the team under pressure.

{Ed002's Note - Fine - go ask Ipswich and the Danish sides - all of which have been coached on long throw ins, which is where he says all of the additional goals will come from.}


5.) 27 Aug 2018 15:00:00
It’s such a random news story, hope sky don’t get hold of this news. They’ll have the “news” cycle littered with dross followed by top club statistics, and then they’ll start the betting odds on throw in goals %.


6.) 27 Aug 2018 16:07:03
By the end of the season we will be cheering getting attacking throw ins like there penalties.


7.) 27 Aug 2018 16:44:18
the only thing i can say is that a lot of pros need educated in throw ins the amount of foul throws is absolute ridiculous in the game these days.


8.) 27 Aug 2018 17:07:30
I hope he's better than the goalkeeping coach.


 

 

16 Aug 2018 16:42:57
Right people, Ed’s! Interested to know your opinion on who you think Is the most important player in our first eleven, the player that makes us tick, the player we would really really struggle without. My mate said Bobby, which is obvious to see why. I said VVD. Think without him, the defense breaks down, and even the midfield in front may leave gaps and space for the opposition. He is the core of our team and I think we would be f***ed without him. What’s your opinions reds/ Ed’s?

JoeyTheRed

{Ed001's Note - goalkeeper is the key player but it is the midfield that makes the team tick. So it would be one of them, depending on the who is picked and the way we are playing.}


1.) 16 Aug 2018 17:39:01
Thanks for your answer ed. Now that you’ve said that lol. Who do you think is our best midfield 3 when everyone is fit? Cheers ed, appreciate your insight and knowledge on footy!

{Ed001's Note - that is tough. Keita defo. Henderson and Fabinho just, though Milner is currently playing well enough to replace any of them.}


2.) 16 Aug 2018 18:12:19
Follow up end if I may, I know you are a big advocate of don't change a winning team, so would you start same 11 on Monday night?
No fixture congestion at the moment, but I could possibly see hendo in for wijnaldum for tactical reasons personally.

{Ed001's Note - I think we need to get Fabinho game time as soon as possible, so I would have him in if anyone was to change.}


3.) 16 Aug 2018 18:23:09
That’s the great thing about Klopp’s team. There is not one individual who the whole team depends on.
We’re a team, all the players are integral. There is a team spirit and everyone works for each other.

Most important individual is Klopp. He sets the team up, he motivates the team, he creates the team spirit. 👍.


4.) 16 Aug 2018 18:44:03
Ed, do you not think that Firmino is the only one is almost irreplaceable?
You said midfield Is key which is fair, but we have options there to rotate, without losing much.
I don’t see anyone in world football who fits our system, works as hard and offers as much to Liverpool (not saying he’s the best cf in world football) as Firmino does.

{Ed001's Note - not even sure he is, as we could just slightly change the set up to play a proper centre forward.}


5.) 16 Aug 2018 18:44:30
Personally I don’t think it’s as simple as just 1 player making the rest of the team tick. For me Firmino is extremely important but Mo and Mane would still score plenty of goals without him. People say the team don’t play as well without Hendo in the midfield but we won more or less every game he missed last season. VVD has made a huge difference to our back four but again he doesn’t keep the clean sheets on his own. We have an extremely good team/ squad and I think they all make each other tick with Klopp being the key string puller behind the scenes.


6.) 16 Aug 2018 18:49:12
Naby Kieta is going to be AWESOME this season lad's.


7.) 16 Aug 2018 19:03:34
Fair ed, either one for me as palace will definitely look to play long and down their left most likely so the height advantage of Fab and Hendo with the ability to cover on the right side defensively I think will be needed.


8.) 16 Aug 2018 19:30:08
Good shout Shane but Milner played so well last game that it would be tough to drop him and he has the energy to help out Trent too. I'd go Milner Fabinho Keita personally but would understand if Klopp opted for Henderson over Milner.


9.) 16 Aug 2018 19:35:08
I have rarely seen a change in a team such as the one when Salah went off in the final. Psychologically speaking, having him in the team, in the form he was in gave the players the belief that his goals mean we can beat anyone. Last season I think it was him.

For the system, Bobby sets the tone. He is the lynch pin of it all. That said, Milner was the driving force behind everything on Sunday, though it is unlikely anyone would say he's our most important player. Really what I'm saying is we don't have that one player anymore. I'm just so chuffed to say that after a long time, our collective is the strength of the team, not just one player.


10.) 16 Aug 2018 20:25:49
We have a red machine and it’s going to be awesome.


11.) 16 Aug 2018 21:25:42
The more opinions you read, the more you realize that it's the system that is the real champion of this team. It's the one crucial thing without which everything breaks down. And the closest person I can associate the system with is Jurgen Klopp. 😉.


12.) 16 Aug 2018 22:35:54
I didn't realise how strong we were until we blasted West ham away with wij and Milner.

Don't get me wrong I like this two but thought they would always need a hendo or fab behind them. Nope.

One I hope get a chance is grujic. Think he could be a monster in a few years. Apparently we pulled the plug on the Cardiff deal and have turned away torino. What's your info eds? Is he getting a shot or just waiting for the right offer?


13.) 16 Aug 2018 23:05:57
Grujic is as good as gone imo, he won't be getting his chance which is a shame, when he first joined and played like he did in his first pre season I thought we had a right player on our hands. Shame it never worked out for him, I do wonder though why he hasn't moved on.


14.) 16 Aug 2018 23:08:05
Well said Ron and Ary. Couldn’t agree more. It’s a system that only works if all 11 are pulling together.

I feel our squad has quality strength in depth in all positions, I’d say Klopp is the only one that’s irreplaceable right now, he is the brains, motivation and driving force behind the performances and positivity at the moment.

Great time to be a red 💪.


15.) 16 Aug 2018 23:13:18
Do agree Salah, can’t see how he will get a look in, not even sure how Lallana and even Ox to come back, how will either push their way back into contention. Grujic seems so far away from 1st team football. Unfortunately.


16.) 17 Aug 2018 01:52:34
Our best player? Salah

Our most ‘Klopp’ like player that I love to watch? Firmino

But if you’re picking the players we’d miss the most it would have to be either Becker or VVD. take one or both of those out of the team and you change the whole psychology.


17.) 17 Aug 2018 07:07:40
It's VVD for me; mostly because of the impact he made when he came in last year.

However, I absolutely agree with some of the comments above. There really isn't just one single player that makes it all tick and we have a real team again.

Bobby is probably my favourite player - his tireless work opens up so much for everyone else. I'm also very excited to see how Keita does this season, he looks a frightening prospect.


18.) 17 Aug 2018 09:43:35
{Ed001's Note - I think we need to get Fabinho game time as soon as possible, so I would have him in if anyone was to change. }

Yep Fabinho in for Gini should be the only change for Monday.


19.) 17 Aug 2018 09:46:56
Salah has to be the player we miss most, until we win a match comfortably in his absence it has to be him.
Last season we didn't look anywhere near the same team when he wasn't playing (and to a lesser extent Mane) our game requires pace up front alongside fermino.


 

 

11 Aug 2018 15:31:02
SO apparently Lovren’s been having terrible muscle pains in his stomach, since the World Cup. Which is preventing him from training. Why he didn’t mention it before, who knows! What are people’s opinions on this? Ed’s? If you have one. Cheers.

JoeyTheRed

1.) 11 Aug 2018 16:53:41
How do you know he did not mention it? He may have mentioned it to the medical staff and the club kept it under wraps, thinking the right treatment would help, right?


2.) 11 Aug 2018 17:23:36
I would feel sick in the stomach after that game as well.


3.) 11 Aug 2018 17:31:04
“Muscle pains in his stomach”

How bizarre 🤔.


4.) 11 Aug 2018 17:41:02
I hope not getting a CB doesn't bite us on the arse.


5.) 11 Aug 2018 17:58:11
The stomach is a large muscular organ. So not bizarre to have muscular pain there. I can bloody hurt!


6.) 11 Aug 2018 18:03:10
Pregnancy.


7.) 11 Aug 2018 19:34:46
Why is he getting muscular pain in his stomach?
Surely his stomach is not fatigued.

What’s he been eating?

{Ed025's Note - humble pie for 3 years ron.. :)


 

 

19 Jul 2018 12:40:30
Best of luck to Danny Ward! Now to try and offload Clyne, Markovic, Ings, Mignolet, and I think Danny Studge has got to go😓 few of the youngsters out on loan would be perfect, but maybe it’s all a bit to much to ask.

JoeyTheRed

 

 

11 Jul 2018 22:29:39
Random question, I understand if Ed’s don’t answer! Just had a great chat with my air bnb guest while watching the England game. Said he was a big Liverpool fan back in the day, fellow Aussie Craig Johnston was his favorite player. A great midfielder he said, only 21 so wasn’t aware of him. Just wondering if any of the Ed’s or readers of this site remember him or watched him back then. Cheers.

JoeyTheRed

{Ed001's Note - I loved him when I was a kid. He had the energy of Kante and big floppy hair, and was a great guy too.}


1.) 11 Jul 2018 22:43:30
Marketed and possibly invented the predator football boot I think.

{Ed001's Note - invented. He came up with idea from table tennis bats if I remember correctly.}


2.) 11 Jul 2018 22:43:49
Great player, basically self taught. Turned up in England wanting to be a pro-footballer but was rubbish. So he trained and worked his ass off and turned himself into a top player for the champions. Won the double, scored in FA cup final and produced the Anfield Rap.


3.) 11 Jul 2018 22:45:00
Wasn’t he the inventor of predator football boots ed.

{Ed001's Note - yep.}


4.) 11 Jul 2018 22:46:58
Blast from the past there mate, Johnston was an absolute gent and a great player. If I remember correctly he also helped the families quite a lot after the Hillsborough disaster.


5.) 11 Jul 2018 22:55:47
Would be a massive cult hero if he played for liverpool today.

My most vivid memory of him is him trying to steal rushies goal.

Tut tut craig.

Better hair than emre can lol.


6.) 11 Jul 2018 22:59:16
Top player, great hair. His shorts were really short classic 80s look. I loved him as a kid. Was his hair a perm?


7.) 11 Jul 2018 22:59:46
Watched him play as well, Ed. He was brilliant. Never stopped running, worked hard off the ball and gave his all every time I saw him play. One of my fav. players growing up supporting LFC.


8.) 11 Jul 2018 23:08:46
Craig Johnston was a really hard working player who gave everything and became an important member of the team and he also came across as a genuinely top bloke

One of the good guys.


9.) 11 Jul 2018 23:09:30
Never forget the celebratory scissor jump :)


10.) 11 Jul 2018 23:26:17
He left football to look after his sister can't remember exactly what was wrong with her but she was poorly at the time. His last game was the '88 cup final. I remember Peter Beardsley giving him a right rollicking for running offside while we were 1 down, very funny.

Incredible player made the very best of his gift, I believe he stopped playing to take of his ill sister in Australia. If it’s correct as I remember then the real mark of the man, lfc legend who gave his all.


15.) 11 Jul 2018 23:41:35
He was the inventor of the predator boots, he got shafted over a deal a couple of years later and ended up loosing his bo**ocks. Was a brilliant player for us his energy was infectious but as far as I can remember he only played football until he was 26 and retired I think he went back to look after a family member.


16.) 11 Jul 2018 23:42:59
Craig Johnston. The headless chicken, I remember him being described as. Loved him, Even tho he wasn't the most talented but he was part of a team of winners.


17.) 11 Jul 2018 23:54:41
He joined around the same time as Ronnie Whelan. Craig came from Middlesbrough and Ronnie from Home Farm.


18.) 12 Jul 2018 01:07:21
One of the old greats, always gave 100% though my late father always said he'd over-hit a cross.


19.) 12 Jul 2018 04:14:40
Fantsstic player.

{Ed0333's Note - you back on the sauce again Hendo. It’s really hard to spell fantastic like that lol.


20.) 12 Jul 2018 05:31:06
You got me dude. Its not so much as sauce as erm have you been to Bolivia?

{Ed0333's Note - I get the reference mate and yes I’ve been to Bolivia. Are you there now?


21.) 12 Jul 2018 07:56:47
Still is a great man. I had the privilege of meeting him on two seperate occasions at A League games here in Newcastle in Australia. Great bloke and spent time with my kids giving advice and taking heaps of pics. Has long grey hair now tied back in a pony tail. Absolute legend and doesn't mind a beer!


22.) 12 Jul 2018 07:59:21
Right now I suspect he's somewhere between the mantle and the crust.


23.) 12 Jul 2018 11:47:34
Wasn’t he a chain smoker.


24.) 12 Jul 2018 06:41:17

Matip is painfully average and is full of mistakes. I was not Lovrens biggest fan, but he has proved himself the last few months And is far better then Matip. I do agree with you on the Vida rumour however. Let’s give Gomez a chance there this season!

JoeyTheRed
