Just wanted to know if any of the eds had the latest info regarding clyne
Surely he can't be staying here for another season but if he is I will support him as per usual but really hope he gets a move somewhere else as he really hurts us attacking wise when he plays.
Decent enough player but I think our style of play and tactics don't suit his strengths.

Johncrow Junior

{Ed001's Note - there has been little interest in him due to his injuries last season.}

1.) 06 Aug 2018 13:49:23
A bit late now to get a good right back in, I don't see him going anywhere. As poor as he is offensively, he's pretty good defensively and we need that more than his attacking attributes.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 14:19:37
personally I see Clyne as 2nd choice RB this season with Gomez being an option for CB. Matip will likely spend a lot of time injured so I reckon they'll be enough games for Gomez at CB and Clyne is decent enough to play a few cup games at RB.

3.) 06 Aug 2018 18:28:19
I agree, I don’t think he’s that bad as a second choice, as long as his hearts in it. Worst comes to worst and he plays a few games, he’s experienced and hopefully can hold his own defencively.

4.) 06 Aug 2018 19:23:37
There's been nothing wrong with him defensively so far, just his fitness. If is heart isn't in it, he won't get game time. Simple as.

5.) 06 Aug 2018 21:40:34
I don’t think he’s good enough as a back up RB, Trent is still young and will need to be rested now and again, that means your going to need to have to rely on Clyne for several games a season, I don’t think I have ever seen him have a good game for us, he would be the weak link and opponents will exploit that.

6.) 06 Aug 2018 22:24:14
Exactly mikey, he's not good enough for this level of football, or even close imo. Defensively he is terrible, Trent is a young lad and is already 10 x the player Clyne is. I'd put Fabinho, Milner or Gomex before Clyne.

7.) 06 Aug 2018 22:34:03
To say Clyne has never had a good game for us is rubbish. Yes there are better attacking full backs out there but I believe he has a big part to play this season. Trent has made the position his own but there
Aren’t many right backs out there better as a back up.

If u think there are then name them. The likes of Walker and Valencia are hugely overrated. Azpilaqeta (excuse spelling) is prob the best about but no chance of getting him.

At the end of the day we need squad players as well as starters to be successful, they can’t all be world beaters.

8.) 06 Aug 2018 23:21:37
You can easily name several better right backs from Liverpool alone.

9.) 07 Aug 2018 06:04:49
I like Clyne. Between him and Trent we have RB sorted.

10.) 07 Aug 2018 06:45:53
Go ahead then Mikey. and remember, Fabinio wAs bought as a midfielder, Milner has proven himself in midfield and only played left back for one season due to necessity.

TAA and Gomez who will spend more time at centre back this year.


11.) 07 Aug 2018 07:34:27
if Clyne plays a bad game, we’ll just have to score more goals 🤔.

12.) 07 Aug 2018 08:11:14
How long has Clyne been here now? And Klopp too?
If Klopp thought Clyne wasn't up to the job, he'd be gone.
Ask Balotelli.

13.) 07 Aug 2018 08:21:45
Problem is FTR who would want Clyne? that's why we're stuck with him mate lol.

14.) 07 Aug 2018 10:09:12
Try saying we're stuck with him if Trent Arnold gets injured or suspended.

15.) 07 Aug 2018 11:39:13
I will do mate because he still won't get a game, Milner or Gomez will be before him maybe even Fabinho.

16.) 07 Aug 2018 12:56:44
Don't see that happening at all. Clyne still has a role to play this season, he'll play more at right back than any other player except TTA. Providing he's not injured of course.

17.) 08 Aug 2018 04:13:00
Clyne and Camacho have played at RB. I don't think the other players will play there. Gomez hasn't been used much there lately so I think Klopp has moved him to his favoured CB position.

TAA and Clyne as second choice. That's the RB position for this season in my view according to preseason. Klopp has been playing everyone where he'll use them during the season I believe.



27 Jun 2018 17:35:52
Bobby Duncan signed for 200k
Gerrards cousin I think.

Johncrow Junior

1.) 27 Jun 2018 18:08:29
Welcome to Liverpool lad. Anybody actually seen him play, if so any good?

2.) 27 Jun 2018 18:14:39
He's 17.

3.) 27 Jun 2018 20:57:57
Only seen highlights of one game against Liverpools kids, Salah. He scored but it was as much bad goal keeping as a great finish. Don't remember anything else as it was over a year ago.

4.) 27 Jun 2018 21:14:50
Did he play for man city.

5.) 27 Jun 2018 21:23:13
Remember the last left footed striker from Liverpool a one Robbie Fowler a. k. a god, step forward bobby Duncan maybe an omen, I hope so!

6.) 27 Jun 2018 21:28:33
Folks calm down he's 17.

7.) 27 Jun 2018 22:23:47
Hahahaha I am just playing he is a kid with a lot too prove and his whole career in front of him, you don't get called god for nothing and Fowler stepped immediately up too the plate, if the talent is there lucky us and hopefully he fulfills his potential.

8.) 28 Jun 2018 11:58:49
He’s got big boots to fill for being the next bobby in Liverpool.

9.) 28 Jun 2018 16:17:09
Only English player to score a hat trick against Brazil at any level. At U17 level I believe.

10.) 28 Jun 2018 16:32:42
Bobby played in the same school team as my lad. He’s a fantastic finisher, who can score any type of goal.

Saw him last year or so for City against Cackpool (Blackpool) and he’s motivated solely by scoring goals, which is an obvious must for a striker!

Reminds me a little of Aguero, similar stature, huge thighs and truly deadly if you give him a chance!

Going forward, I don’t know if he suits our current way of playing, but I guess it’s up to him.

Hope he forces his way through!

11.) 28 Jun 2018 18:06:05
We should have signed Ricky Bobby instead

‘If you ain’t first, you’re last! ’.

12.) 30 Jun 2018 14:06:10
“Bobby Duncan signed for 200k
Gerrards cousin I think”

Seems consistent. They both went for 2 first names instead of a proper surname 🙄.



28 May 2018 23:30:41
I know we have been linked very hard with Fekir but a little birdy tells me it is Malcolm we really want
not sure how this will turn out but it is malcolm more then Fekir according to the little birdy
just passing it on lads.

Johncrow Junior

{Ed0333's Note - over to Ed’s 002

1.) 28 May 2018 23:42:04
Malcolm is a talented player.

2.) 29 May 2018 03:45:08
Malcom is a winger, Fekir a CAM. It will be both if Malcom is the winger Klopp wants, not one of the two.
The UCl final was a clear indication we need another wide player in case Salah or Mane cannot play and Fekir is a CAM that will bring more creativity to our workmanlike midfield.
Fabinho, Keita and Fekir! BOOM! Bet Harry will be the happiest LFC fan alive if that happens.

3.) 29 May 2018 05:34:27
Wait so what's going to happen to Hender (backpass) en, Mil (not that boring) ner and Gini?

4.) 29 May 2018 06:12:07
Regardless if any wife player coming in, if Fekir does come it would signal to me Klopp switching to a very attacking 4231 starting formation next year, with Fekir behind Bobby. This would leave Fabinho, Hendo, Wiji, Milner, Ox, Lallana and Keita vying for the remaining midfield positions, although Ox and Lallana could be cover/ rotation for Fekir I suppose. All opinion and guess work of course, but if true I would imagine at least 2 will leave.

5.) 29 May 2018 06:55:42
I hope we haven’t resorted to signing wives now 😲.

6.) 29 May 2018 07:20:45
I'd prefer to see Malcolm in the Middle :)

{Ed025's Note - love it burkey..

7.) 29 May 2018 08:00:14
Speaking of wives. turns out, Fabinho's wife was the only ITK posting hints of their future over the weekend. There's a picture of her supporting Liverpool on Saturday night, doing the rounds ;)

8.) 29 May 2018 08:49:10
Thanks for the info Johncrow.

9.) 29 May 2018 09:18:50
you welcome Salah mate
it may turn out to be crap but thought I would share
albeit now Lemar seems to have come back into the frame as well according to Lequipe
So my little birdy looks like he may have given me duff info lol.

10.) 29 May 2018 12:50:19
Well for now we know we are looking for a coutinho replacement (Fekir, Lemar), cover wide (Dembele, Malcom, Lemar, Pulisic), Goalkeeper Cover (Navas, Butland) or First choice (Alisson) and Centerbacks cover (Tarkowski) .



15 May 2018 20:42:23
What a disgrace that Germany can call up Kevin trapp for their world cup squad who has played only 4 league games for them all season and leave out Karius
wow im in disbelief, go and win the champions league son and stick it to them.

Johncrow Junior

{Ed025's Note - wait till brover hears that he will be gutted..

1.) 15 May 2018 20:51:03
It's a disgrace? Really?

2.) 15 May 2018 21:11:56
'go and win the champions league son and stick it to them. '

Exactly mate. He'll be the one laughing in the end WHEN we win that CL.

3.) 15 May 2018 23:39:15
Karius, Van Dijk, Lovren, Robertson and Matip won't be at the WC. I might be a bit selfish here but that gives the bulk of our defence at least 2 weeks more time pre season. Milner Winjaldum and Keita also getting a full pre season I'm not complaining could be a blessing.

4.) 15 May 2018 23:23:20
Ha ha ha Ed025 😂😂😂😂. The German buffoon “Karius” misses out. Conspiracy 😂😂😂.

5.) 16 May 2018 07:08:31
Is it a disgrace? He’s only reallly played 6 months of proper football this year and 10 games the season before that.

If you’re not first choice GK for world cups then any other call up is essentially anonymous shy of injuries.

6.) 16 May 2018 07:54:36
Surely neither were likely to play or even go in the final squad, you normally take three and neuer and ter Stegen will be first choice. Leno will be third and likely not even play.

7.) 16 May 2018 09:22:24
on the flip side any player not going to the world cup gets a proper rest over the summer and can come back earlier to pre season refreshed rather than burnt out like we have seen a number of players in previous seasons.

8.) 16 May 2018 09:26:08
I'm surprised either was chosen, but if I was choosing one then it would certainly be Karius over Trapp.

9.) 16 May 2018 09:31:27
Could it possibly be that Trapp is considered a better keeper than Karius? You'd be hard pressed to find a non-liverpool fan who rates him highly.

10.) 16 May 2018 10:31:02
Bit of perspective. Karius has played 2 thirds of a season and has been reasonably solid. Doesn’t make him an automatic World Cup selection. When it comes to World Cup squads the Germans know what they’re doing.

11.) 16 May 2018 11:12:41
Don't know why people keep knocking Karius. His record of clean sheets against games played is as good as De Gea. 10 in 19 games played against 18 in 37 games played for De Gea

Karious averages 1.55 goals conceded per game and De Gea 1.33.

12.) 16 May 2018 12:10:07
i would put clean sheets down to Vvd more than karius. he punched stoke player in head and pushed the ball to dzeko. how many MOM has he had. performance more important than goals conceded. he's a 7 at best. de gea is a 9 on an off day. We need a 9 Gk or another world class Cb to deal with his flapping.

13.) 16 May 2018 12:23:59
I'm not knocking him at all and have faith he can be our no1 and continue to improve. i just don't think it's outrageous trapp has been chosen over him.

anyone outraged by that has red tinted specs on, sorry.

14.) 16 May 2018 12:51:40
No one said it was outrageous that he wasnt picked. It was that he wasnt picked and that a keeper (in fact two keepers but Neuer is more understandable who has basically not played this season was picked while he wasnt.

15.) 16 May 2018 13:17:38
thank you hjikle for understanding the point i was making about Trapp.

16.) 16 May 2018 15:17:13
Trapp is a poor keeper by any standard, how he got in ahead of Karius who has been playing actual football is amazing, but he will come back fresh after no extra football so a win for us.

17.) 16 May 2018 15:53:18
You are right hjikle no one said it was outrageous that Trapp was picked over Karius, the OP said that it was a disgrace. I can think of many things that are a disgrace but that is not one of them!

18.) 16 May 2018 16:46:25
Comparing stats Karius against De Gea? Come on, even the most blinded LFC fan wouldn't think Karius is in the same league as De Gea, Stats can really contort views of players.

19.) 16 May 2018 17:08:40
Definitely agree Karius could be a top keeper if he keeps improving like the second half of the season. I think his decisiveness has been his weaker area and no surprise with influence in Migs. VVD seems to have had a really good influence on Karius collecting the ball and when not to. But credit to the lad for taking the pressure of past performances and turning it around. Also, maybe taking Karius to the world up is too soon though, one slip up could imbalance his confidence and impact his performance in the next season, seeing as his confidence is only built of late.

20.) 16 May 2018 17:42:40
“even the most blinded LFC fan wouldn't think Karius is in the same league as De Gea“

I thought they were both in the premier league 😉.

21.) 16 May 2018 17:57:15
Boom boom Ron.
In all seriousness tho, maybe Karius just isn't rated by others as highly as some Liverpool fans rate him. It doesn't surprise me he didn't make it.

22.) 16 May 2018 18:27:05
I think you're after "distort", Lancaster Red ;-)

23.) 16 May 2018 20:03:09
Sorry but I still don't think Karius is anywhere near good enough for us. He has improved but I think that is more to do with the improved defence in front of him.

24.) 17 May 2018 07:34:20
'I still don't think Karius is anywhere near good enough for us'

Nah he's not is he mate, he's only part of the team who are in the CL final, but nah not good enough for us is he. Come off it, he's a decent keeper and still very young for a keeper. From what we've seen of him how you can say he's not anywhere near good enough for us is beyond me. He took over the number 1 spot suddenly and then things changed, do you think we'd of been in the final or 4th if Migs was kept in goal? I don't. Give the lad praise, he deserves it.

25.) 17 May 2018 10:30:22
No contort is fine in the context thanks ha, Karius isn't near top level, he is an improvement in Mignolet and that's where people are thinking he is upto the job, he produce some good performances but still doesn't look like winning us games, he has an unease about him that isn't going away, he made a couple of vital. saves in games at a time when we were rocking but that should be standard, he isn't top level or going to be imo.

Hi Ed001 Hope your well mate
after last night im still smiling but was just wondering now Liverpool are in the semi of champions league and going for the title with Man City.
How much of of an influence will that be having on Agents, and will they now be possibly advising their players to go to liverpool instead of say a chelsea or man u.
I have read somewhere that we might be after Felix of Benfica and a young player like this would an agent say look Liverpool are on the up and are going places forget Barcelona real man city go here.

Johncrow Junior

{Ed001's Note - they would look more at their chances of playing regularly and the money they will earn before a potential one-off success is considered. If we win this year and win something next year too, then it makes more of a difference. Though it really depends on the player, as they are individuals and have different ideas of what they want.}

1.) 18 Apr 2019 13:25:11
Thank you for the reply
I think Liverpool this summer will bring in some real top class young talent who might be more willing to wait their turn to become a regular in the team.

2.) 18 Apr 2019 13:57:07
I would really love him to sign although we have little chance. I had been watching him earlier on in the season on free ports which regularly has Portuguese liga games on and instantly knew that kid had talent.

Then to see him okay like he did against Frankfurt, a long ranger, excellent passing, pressing the lot. Surely a contender for next years golden boy and the most exciting attacking prospect since mbappe.

3.) 18 Apr 2019 14:29:51
Agreed johncrow.

4.) 18 Apr 2019 15:02:28
About bringing in top, young players john crow. I think you're bang on mate.



15 Apr 2019 17:06:04
ED001 hi mate hope your well
if and it is a massive if we are interested in Julian Brandt then surely this woulld mean Shaqiri leaving
or could you see both possibly in the squad alongside ox.

Johncrow Junior

{Ed001's Note - there is a need for both imo.}

1.) 15 Apr 2019 17:47:08
The beauty with brandt is he can play anywhere across the front 3 and cm. I also think we have been very fortunate with injuries to our attackers this season. Whether that’s to do with or sport scientists or not I’m not sure but I’m with Ed here. We also will be aiming to go further than our first rounds in the fa and carling cup.

{Ed001's Note - we do need more options so that we can start looking to win everything we enter, as we should do.}

2.) 15 Apr 2019 17:48:47
I was mulling over the same Johncrow. Just felt as though with Ox coming back, potentially Brandt coming in (who I think would be an excellent buy), Wilson returning, Brewster returning to full fitness and Origi staying, that more often than not there might not even be a place on the bench for Shaq.

3.) 15 Apr 2019 18:42:16
Lallana with leave as well I would have thought so these more space.

4.) 15 Apr 2019 18:00:29
Cheers for the reply ed and yes Iron dan im thinking he might struggle for even bench time shaqiri but the sqaud is definitely not as strong as city so maybe he might stay but brandt 100 percent I want and timo wener if possible but not at the expense of brewster so if they can all be fitted in then happy days lol.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

5.) 15 Apr 2019 18:52:31
He can play CM? I have him as forward Ed more than a midfielder?

6.) 15 Apr 2019 19:14:17
I think it would be one or the other johncrow, highly unlikely to be both.

Yes Virgil he has played cm/ cam the majority of this season. Him and Havertz have both played in the middle with Lars bender playing deep in a 433 although they are very suspect defensively.

7.) 15 Apr 2019 19:14:24
Last season our squad wasnt big enough. Or it didn't have enough class in it. This year we have improved massively but i don't think brandt coming should mean shaqiri leaves. If anyone i wpuld guess lallana. Or none of them. We need to continue building a squad full of class players. Shaq has class, i would keep him. And it was shaqiri who klopp picked up and hugged after salah's goal. He is always the first sub up on his feet when we score. I think he will stay.

8.) 15 Apr 2019 19:51:38
Surely Brandt coming in would spell the end of Origis time at Liverpool?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

9.) 15 Apr 2019 19:54:47
Would surely spell the end for Wilson though. I hope we give him shot, I live in Notts and my Derby mates rave about him.

10.) 15 Apr 2019 20:10:46
I think a premier league loan is best for Wilson’s development rtid.

11.) 15 Apr 2019 21:02:21
Is Origi staying?

12.) 15 Apr 2019 22:48:57
Brandt can play in attacking midfield or left/ right attacking midfield. He's not much of a forward in a front 3, in my opinion. He doesn't look to run in behind as aggressively as Mane, Salah, Firmino and Origi. More likely he would be considered a replacement for Lallana and/ or Shaqiri, for when Klopp wants to go with a 4-2-3-1 (which was a lot before he gave up on Shaq) . Brandt would be a great signing if we pulled it off.

13.) 15 Apr 2019 23:45:15
MK, the switch to 4-2-3-1 was apparently less to do with Shaqiri and more to do with Fabinho. I'd heard the Klopp and the other coaching staff felt as though Fabinho needed some extra support in the midfield while he adjusted to both the premier league and what was being asked of him by Klopp. He was then deemed ready and we switched back our more traditional system.

14.) 16 Apr 2019 03:44:35
if you look at the squad, we lack the most depth in the forwards with Mané, Firmino and Salah almost untouchable, then a notable gap to Origi, Sturridge and Brewster. I agree with Ed we don’t need Shaq to leave to create space, he can take the place of Sturridge and he’d add a lot to being able to rotate our front three IMO.

In the midfield we’re very well stocked and can afford to let Lallana go IMO given we have Fabinho, Hendo, Keita, Milner, Ox, Gini and Shaqiri all excellent options. I’m not sure id use Brandt in midfield unless playing a 4-2-3-1.

At the back I reckon we just need a backup GK assuming Migs leaves, and a strong FB able to play on both left and right side to replace Moreno and give cover to Trent. With Gomez coming back, not sure a new CB would be a priority.

{Ed0333's Note - the only team in the premiership that has anything like the caliber of players on the bench as they do in the starting 11 is City. But they are an exception. I for one am very happy to have origi on the bench, his new position has equated to goals, notable and decisive impressions as sub. Why the clamor for Brewster all of a sudden he’s unproven and coming back from a horrific injury what’s the guarantee he’ll be any good, but Im all for giving him a chance tho at the expense of Sturridge and yes I’d keep Shaq even if Brandt were to arrive. Not sure Shaq would stay as a bit part though? I honestly think we can afford to let Milner and Lalana go from the midfield for differing reasons. For me Lalana is not in keeping with the way we’re evolving and as for Milner I want him to leave for Leeds while he has something to offer his boyhood club, not like when Lambert came to us. Our midfield is looking particularly sexy and I’m sure there will be another addition before next season. For sure a back up will be sought when Migs leaves and I agree with you RED I would love to see a player bought in that can cover RB, LB and central defense but those types of players are rare and not easy to find.

15.) 16 Apr 2019 09:37:24
Agree with all that Ed, and happy to have Origi on the Bench, but I’d be a lot more comfortable if we had Brandt in there over Sturridge if one of our front three were to get injured at any point next season.

I really like Milner for his ability to cover fullback positions but agree if he wanted to move on for his own personal reasons, and we brought in a strong option to cover FB, then good luck to the lad. He’s been an absolute champion for the club.

16.) 16 Apr 2019 11:13:13
Regarding Milner leaving, I suppose his heart is still with Leeds, but I would love it, if he had a role on our coaching staff. To me, he has been the epitome of a true professional, and he could pass on his valuable experience to our youngsters. It hasn't seemed to have done Gerrard any harm, going down that route.

17.) 16 Apr 2019 12:54:37
Ox, lallana, shaqiri, Sturridge, origi and brewster can all cover the front three. We are not as lacking as some think. I even think keita could play lw.

18.) 16 Apr 2019 13:50:45
I hope milly stays and if we miss out this year i think he will stay. Even if we do win, i don't see him wanting to leave as a champion. He has at least 3 years left, plenty of time to play for leeds.

Milner performs amazingly in europe.

19.) 16 Apr 2019 07:24:39
Are you an admirer of Brandt then Ed0333? You think he would fit in well mate? I guess persuading him on the game time could be key.

{Ed0333's Note - I’m a big fan of Brandt to be honest Virgil, have been for a while. Now that he can essentially play four positions it’s shows what a versatile and intelligent player he is. He is exactly the type of player our squad needs a much much much better Shaqiri if you will. Would love us to sign him. Wether he’d come? You’re guess is as good as mine mate.

20.) 16 Apr 2019 10:17:05
With you there, Ed0333. I would keep Origi cos he is talented and his mentality, selflessness (NEVER moaned when he was not playing) and work ethic is something that our team needs. Now if he wants to go to get first team football elsewhere of if Klopp wants rid then that will be his/ Klopp's choice. I think Studge, Lallana, Moreno and Migs will definitely be let go. Milner is a tricky one as Klopp may like to keep him BUT he may want to leave if Leeds get promoted.

As for players to come in, we don't need backups for the FB positions, CAM and attacking positions. We need COMPETITION as that is the only way we can compete in all comps. next season. We should bring in players who can make us competitive regardless of the lineup we put out, which is NOT the case now. I know that it's easier said than done BUT that should be the goal.

{Ed0333's Note - totally on board with everything you’re saying mate especially about the Full Backs. Don’t get me wrong I love Robbo and Trent and the endevour they display but for me they are suspect defensively and when compared with the likes of Phil Neal, Steve Nicol, Rob Jones, Aurelio, Marcus Babel in my opinion they come up short. The first half against Porto tonight proves my point they are getting schooled. So if we go out and spunk a load of cash on a right wing back and a left wing back you won’t find me complaining. I have no problem with four players contesting 2 positions next season. How about we go and try and win a quadruple?

Bit of light hearted fun
the best English Irish Scottish and Welsh players you have ever seen play for Liverpool (chose one)

For me has to be John barnes Ronnie Whelan King Kenny and Ian Rush
but have to admit im a massive fan of Gary Mac and Ray Hougton but could not fit them in to the list over the two I chose.

Having got back into football after my courtin' years (2002) scottish wise Robertson is likely to be one of our best left backs for many years. Such great character too.

2.) 11 Mar 2019 09:32:11
to play this honetly i think the only guys i've seen play as in Live on t. v. are finnan, woodburn and gary mac. am i missing anyone!?

3.) 11 Mar 2019 09:35:27
Gerrard, Finnan, Robertson and I was born 91, so I think the only Welshman I remember watching is Bellamy?

4.) 11 Mar 2019 10:50:50
Barnes, Rush, Sir King Kenny, and yes, Roonie Whelan. What a star he was, my fave player in that team.

5.) 11 Mar 2019 12:45:48
Can't argue with your suggestions, Johncrow. I started supporting in the early-mid 80s so can just about remember the King in his playing days, most notably the 1986 FA Cup final!

Would be interesting to do it by decade:

80s = Barnes, KK, Whelan and Rushie

90s = Fowler, Nicol, Whelan (it was an aging Whelan or Phil Babb! ) and Rushie (again! )

00s = Gerrard, Gary Mac, Finnan and Bellamy

10s = Gerrard (although Trent might run him close depending on how he develops this season and start of next, but probably Trent in the 20s), Robbo, can only be Joe Allen as he's the only Welshman to have played for us this decade, no Irishmen have played for us this decade.

The 10s really were hard! Hopefully with Woodburn and Wilson we'll have some Welsh hopes into the 20s and the only Irish hopeful we have at the moment is Kelleher.

6.) 11 Mar 2019 12:52:22
I can't out do Johncrow Junior's selection but as a backup 4 I'll go with

Gerrard, Highway, Souness and Toshack.

7.) 11 Mar 2019 13:49:38
Totally agree with you on that, Polecat.

8.) 11 Mar 2019 14:27:26
Third choice, Keegan, Lawrenson, Hansen, Joey Jones.

9.) 11 Mar 2019 16:02:36
Great question!

Not old enough to have seen greats like King Kenny, but I'll go for Gerrard, Finnan, Mcallister (Expect Robertson to eventually overtake) and Bellamy.

Interesting how many great scots have played for the club, can't think of the last great scottish player who was anywhere near Kenny, Souness and Hansen.

10.) 11 Mar 2019 22:17:37
I’m lucky enough to have been watching Liverpool since the mid 1960s and boy have we had some brilliant players (and a few stinkers, too) . My choices over the last 50 years (Jeez, you don’t know how old that makes me feel! ) are :

England - Steven Gerrard slightly ahead of John Barnes
Ireland - Steve Heighway just ahead of Ronnie Whelan
Scotland - The King of course but Graeme Souness not that far behind
Wales - Ian Rush way out on his own.

11.) 11 Mar 2019 23:42:22
WW, but can Stevie G rap 😉😂.

12.) 12 Mar 2019 08:20:27
Don't forget the Welsh Xavi Benny!



04 Mar 2019 10:49:41
For me im not going to moan about the result it happens but can Ed001 tell me his opinion behind the gini for milner sub I would of thought hendo for milner made more sense, was gini injured?
This team for me is crying out for ox someone who from midfield can unleash a 25 to 30 yard rocket something it seems our midfielders are unable to do atm
We cannot play a midfield with so little goal threat against teams who sit deep we need something a little different a little creativity
That is all that is missing from this team imo.

Johncrow Junior

{Ed001's Note - Gini was tired and Milner runs in behind as well as offers cover for Robertson to get forward more.}

1.) 04 Mar 2019 11:28:27
Thank you for the reply makes sense
last question do you think the lallana sub made sense in your opinion or would you have gone a different path?
have a good day mate.

{Ed001's Note - I would not have brought him on no.}

2.) 04 Mar 2019 11:49:01
Lallana is neither a goal-scorer or a game-changer. The idea of bringing him on in the last quarter when we’re desperate for a goal is ludicrous imo especially when he hasn't scored for nearly two years.
The time was right to be a bit ballsy and risk Shaq or Keita, players who could provide an X factor and give Everton something to think about. Instead, Lallana ran around a lot. Which is what he does.

3.) 04 Mar 2019 12:50:43
Lallana fitted in well with our midfield then because that's all our midfield can do, run around a lot, hugely disappointed with how the games have gone recently and have to say a lot of it has come the changes being made or I should say, not being made during games.

4.) 04 Mar 2019 12:53:45
Hey ed001 hows it going bud, i do hate coming on here when we don't win as most people go in a meltdown and say every player crap lol, don't they realise its going to be hard winning the league against this city side, just enjoy we are in this battle, yea results could be better but it is whst it is still 9 games to go so anything could happen.

{Ed001's Note - hi mate, I tend to find it easier to just ignore it, most of it is just senseless whining.}

5.) 04 Mar 2019 13:16:28
Yea and a lot of i told you so lol, when we play crap and don't win, rather draw them like we have than lose them.

6.) 04 Mar 2019 13:16:45
Maybe Lallana was brought in to hold the ball up top? Press more? I think he can do both better than Shaqiri.

7.) 04 Mar 2019 14:48:28

If Lallana couid do all those what you say then he should be kept and given a new contract in May!

8.) 04 Mar 2019 18:22:45
VakPa, Lallana is past it. His legs are gone and Klopp may like him BUT he offered nothing yesterday and has not done so for months now. If he could do all the things you say he can, why has he not shown even an ounce of these qualities? Could it be that he can't do these things anymore? Let's call a spade a spade, man. Lallana should NEVER have come on for Mane last night when we actually needed a goal to win the game, end of. That is essentially two mistakes in one go right there and Klopp messed up. We move on.



20 Jan 2019 17:56:29
Can any ed help here
during the time when stubbs and mcateer were linked with us is true
A that stubbs turned us down for Blackburn and B true that mcateer chose us over arsenal and C did Collymore come to us even though he was offered more money elsewhere at the time?

Johncrow Junior

{Ed001's Note - Stubbs did turn us down, not for anyone else, just turned us down as he was an Evertonian and did not want to join us. McAteer was desperate to join us and rejected a couple of other offers. We were the only team to meet the ludicrous asking price for C****more.}

1.) 20 Jan 2019 18:05:16
As always mate thank you for very swift reply
Mcateer just went up in my estimation lol.

{Ed001's Note - it was a dream come true for him and he was never going to go anywhere else if we were interested.}

2.) 20 Jan 2019 18:47:28
It always makes me cry every time I bring this fact up.

We signed Collymore for £9 million in the same transfer window that Arsenal signed Bergkamp for £8 million.

Oh no, I'm filling up again. :' (.

3.) 20 Jan 2019 18:59:21
Ed001, can you imagine what a Bergkamp/ Fowler partnership would have been like?

You have to remember that it was Bruce Rioch that signed Dennis. It's not like he signed because of the manager's reputation.

{Ed001's Note - Bergkamp would have been sensational for us.}

4.) 20 Jan 2019 19:57:46
Bergkamp would have been sensational kicking a tin can around in the park, once of the best players to ever step on to a football pitch.

5.) 20 Jan 2019 20:11:23
There’s an inevitable element of hindsight to this debate though, even though I don’t disagree with the ultimate assessment.
Bergkamp had flopped badly in Italy (Inter if I recall) and it subsequently took him a long while to settle in at Arsenal.
Whilst, conversely, Collymore’s star was very much on the rise and he looked a good buy, the modern striker full of pace and power.
But it went downhill from there, his own problems alas.

6.) 20 Jan 2019 20:13:29
always a red - exactly why I cringe every time I hear Collymore's name. How different it could have been.

7.) 20 Jan 2019 20:33:04
The Juicer - It always makes me wonder if part of a medical should include an assessment of a player's mental health and maybe a personality profile.

I've gone for so many interviews and had to fill out so many questionnaires to try to profile my personality. If such a thing was in practice (I know it was a different era, and I wouldn't like a simple questionnaire being used but more a personal one on one assessment) surely if both Bergkamp and Collymore were profiled, we'd have signed the former instead. We can talk about hindsight all we want but if players were assessed on a psychological level as well as physical, unless the psychological expert was a complete imbecile, we'd never have signed Collymore.

8.) 20 Jan 2019 20:51:12
Collymore was immense, him and fowler the season they had together were just mouth watering. Just a shame collymore was and still is a complete bell end.

9.) 20 Jan 2019 21:20:31
Pegleg - I know it's a bit of a taboo to talk about, but I don't think Collymore is right in the head. Hence my reasoning to bring up mental health and the debate of whether the club should be screening for it.

Of course Stan has never been in the news about sectioning or anything, but Aaron Lennon and Steven Caulker (just to pick 2 out of the hat) have had problems. Maybe it should be part of the medical.

We're really deviating from the point here though. I simply commented about Collymore being a preferred signing opposed to signing Dennis Bergkamp, and we've gone way off tangent, which is my fault entirely.

But like I said, it still pains me that we signed Stan as opposed to Dennis (for more money) .

10.) 20 Jan 2019 21:48:07
I’ve spoken to McAteer about the day he signed for us. He was in a meeting with Dalglish at Blackburn as we hadn’t come in for him so he was about to sign for them. Next thing his agent has taken a call and told him Roy Evans wanted to see him as Liverpool had agreed a fee with Bolton. He explained this to Kenny and said he wanted to speak to Liverpool. Kenny told him if he leaves his office the deal is off, so he grabbed his coat and made his way to Liverpool!
He also said he got into loads of trouble with Bolton for celebrating with the league cup after we beat them at Wembley! 😂 Quality!

11.) 20 Jan 2019 23:57:32
Loved MacAteer and MacMannaman overlapping, must of been a nightmare to defend against.

I will stop as the point im making seems to be lost in you trying to go a different path
chelsea are no saints when signing players klopp tells lies according to you and we have to accept that
thank you for all your info mate much appreicated.

nothing to do with Chelsea you highighted one liverpool player I highlighted 43 chelsea players
im sure a few of them were made promises about first team chances
and wp were obtained by saying they would play and were players who would not be loaned out but given first team chances
You always seem to make comments about liverpool which we all appreciate
I made one about Chelsea with no harm intended.

Johncrow Junior

{Ed002's Note - I didn't raise the issue, one of the supporters did. There is no issue with Chelsea having players on loan. They have not been lied to - you are just embarrassing everyone trying to make it about someone else.}

Klopp is what klopp is not defending him just sayinh
but how many players do Chelsea have out on loan
last count it was something like 43 or maybe even higher
they have a nigerian left back who has been out on loan something like 5 seasons in a row
surely this is worse then what is happening with Grujic.

Johncrow Junior

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what any of this has to do with Chelsea. You certainly know how to embarras yourselves. And I am pretty sure that Chelsea don't have a liar and a cheat as a coach.}

We have money if needs be and we have players who can be sold so I would not worry about money if klopp needs it I think he will get backed no matter what van dijk and Allison prove that.

he left like suarez did under dubious circumstances both chose Barcelona as did michael owen and macca going to real madrid although not under bad feelings
anyone who leaves us we are unhappy but then manner in which the Barcelona duo left us left for me a bitter taste and as such I care no more for them and hope to never ever see any luis or pipco in a reds shirt again
but I do not wish them bad I hope they find happiness everywhere else in life.
