New image uploaded to the
Liverpool Player Sightings page entitled, VVD to Liverpool as the new number 4?

A) Could've sworn that pic or very similar circulated in the summer.

B) Doesn't he have "Virgil" on his shirt instead of "van Dijk" anyway?

{Ed025's Note - im sure i seen...iscariat on his back SR.. :)


2.) 26 Dec 2017 12:32:12
It's just rubbish from Twitter. As far as I am concerned, we need another centre back and if it is VVD so be it.

Klopp needs to ditch Migs today though and pick Karius.

Not that we have any interest Ed01. If David Luis become available do you think he would be a good target for Liverpool to go for given our centre half issues or would you steer clear?

Jonpow

{Ed001's Note - David Luiz is not what we need. His strengths lie in being great on the ball, his defending is not good enough for us. When he was acting as a sweeper, with two out-and-out defenders alongside him he was excellent but we do not have that.}


1.) 07 Nov 2017 06:12:01
Cheers ed01.

{Ed001's Note - I still say we should have gone all out for Christensen from them before anyone else. He had been outstanding in the Bundesliga and is a much better player than van Dijk.}


2.) 07 Nov 2017 06:46:14
Christensen looked really composed against Utd. The best of the Chelsea CBs and Conte seeme to agree now so next to impossible to sign him now.
Still think Manolas is the best attainable option out there.


3.) 07 Nov 2017 07:34:27
I agree Ed1
But wasn't he on loan from Chelsea?

{Ed001's Note - he was, yes, but he was unsure of his place at Chelsea for this season initially and there was a chance of convincing him to move for the prospect of certain football.}


4.) 07 Nov 2017 18:45:11
Christensen was very good vs Utd and has been good whenever he has played this season. I would not mind Kurt Zouma as well as he has all the tools to be a great CB BUT Chelsea simply won't sell him to us.

{Ed002's Note - if Chelsea were looking to sell why would they not sell to Liverpool?


5.) 07 Nov 2017 22:43:40
Ed02, I guess that means they are not willing to sell.

Ed01 if your about or anyone else for that matter. If Liverpool had to recruit a new manager say in the summer (I hope we don't by the way as I like Klopp) and it had to be an UK (British/ Irish) manager only! Who would you pick and why?

I am posting this based on a number of home based managers saying they don't get a look in so just interested in people's thoughts. I know Ed25 will have some thoughts given Unsworth at Everton with Dyche tipped as a potential.

Mine would be Lee Johnson or Gary Rowett. I must admit that it is based on small amounts of what I have seen with both managers but both doing well and Lee with a team that has been poor in previous seasons but spent less than most teams in that division pushing for promotion and playing good football.

Cheers.

Jonpow

{Ed001's Note - not Rowett, he makes Tony Pulis seem like Pep Guardiola in terms of quality of football. Lee Johnson was on the verge of the sack not so long ago, but he is an interesting shout. For me the likes of Dyche need to take the next step up first, somewhere like Stoke would be perfect for him and he would not struggle to improve on Hughes. Chris Hughton is a lovely bloke but his football is too defensive. Paul Clement is not a manager in a million years, so he would be out. I would have to go with the same person Ed002 suggested for Everton - Glenn Hoddle. Though it is mainly because there is so little in the way of genuine options.}


1.) 30 Oct 2017 23:02:52
There's not many when you think about it, I wouldn't want any personally, none are big enough for Liverpool and to say that is a shame, it's all foreign managers now, there's nobody here really to wow us.


2.) 31 Oct 2017 00:36:06
Chris Wilder is doing a pretty decent job at Sheffield Utd.


3.) 31 Oct 2017 00:57:02
I would be well pleased if hoddle were our new manager. I love klopp too. I think glen would win us that league.


4.) 30 Oct 2017 22:46:13
Nice one Ed01 it infuriates me how so many claim hard done by yet haven't got a clue!

Thanks for the reply and providing such a fantastic site.

{Ed001's Note - you are very welcome mate but I should have mentioned Wilder! Mushroom4 makes a great shout there, he is working wonders and he would have to be the one you would take a chance on from the lower leagues.}


5.) 31 Oct 2017 04:51:29
What’s the thinking on Eddie Howe?

{Ed001's Note - personally I do not rate him. He has had a much larger budget than the likes of Dyche, but has taken the team backwards. He struggles tactically and does not get the best out of his players plus they are so boring to watch. Passing for passing's sake is not good football to me.}


6.) 31 Oct 2017 06:29:46
Very interesting thread however if any of the names mentioned became Liverpool manager this place and general fan base would probably combust. Would be interesting to see if someone like Hughton for example would be good enough to tweak his tactics if managing better players.
If we were looking for a manager would linders be under consideration at all he is clearly a highly rated coach.

{Ed001's Note - at the moment, no, but there is high hopes he will be in the future.}


7.) 31 Oct 2017 07:08:48
I like Hoddle as I think his knowledge of the game is right up there. However, I think man management is as much a part of the game as almost anything these days. I'm not sure he has the charisma/ man management skills.

A complete dearth of options though.


8.) 31 Oct 2017 09:26:22
Brendan Rodgers again.


9.) 31 Oct 2017 10:26:22
I think Ljinders with time, may take over from Klopp (hopefully after a successful spell with us) as he is an integral part of his coaching staff esp. with bringing the young players through to the first team and knows our system inside out.


10.) 31 Oct 2017 12:15:44
Man managementand charisma would mean very little if we were sat at the top of the league. He was the last true good England manager. He is a buddist and was stitched up by the media and I don't blame him for wanting out. People dislike him coz he is a Londoner but are happy to have a German manager. Priorities guys. I think he would have won something with England if he had the chance. He really was a brilliant manager.


11.) 31 Oct 2017 17:09:50
With regards to Hoddle, don't mention his name in Wolverhampton as he was a complete disaster there. Whenever I mention his name in a positive way to my Wolves mates they tell me where to go!

Ed01

I have to agree with you on the Mane red even if it wasn't intentional. however having just seen Ritchie for Newcastle against Swansea a few moments ago he jumps head height to nudge the ball on with his foot and studs showing and tge defender luckily didn't get caught as full on so managed to stay on his feet and you see ritchie mouth I didn't see him and gets a yellow for it!

There has to be some consistency with the refereeing in this country which just aggregates me!

Have you seen the incident and what are your thoughts on the refereeing in the Prem?

Jonpow

{Ed001's Note - we were literally discussing that on our editor's widget then. We all feel Ritchie should have got a red and refereeing inconsistencies are a major problem. There was one in the earlier game as well, McArthur went flying in with his boot head high to try and get on the end of a ball, right by two defenders. That one never even got given as a foul.}


1.) 10 Sep 2017 17:38:07
Ed, Mane's challenge was a red, no question. I think the main reason it is a red is that Ederson got to the ball first and got a face full of studs. There is no way on earth where this scenario will not get a red card. Now, I have not seen the incidents you have mentioned above with Jonpow so I cannot comment. The lesson here is that in that situation, you don't raise your leg that high a for a head-level ball like that as that in itself is dangerous play. If he goes with his head, regardless of the outcome, Mane is not getting sent off and that should be the issue closed, IMO.

{Ed001's Note - that is the thing mate, all 3 incidents were needless. The ball is at head height, it does not take a genius to realise you go with your head.}


2.) 10 Sep 2017 17:58:04
Thanks Ed01! Yeah just seen that other incident and cannot believe nothing was given.

I was lower end amature football player in the Liverpool county com league and if a ball is head height you go for it with your head! Don't see why players try to use their feet at that height.


3.) 10 Sep 2017 18:16:23
I think the emphasis is on the player's judgement. Mane tried something (to get the ball ahead of the keeper) but got it all wrong and got the keeper in the face. To me he got a red because his poor judgement endangered another player.

If the player judges it right and safely wins the ball then that should be encouraged but the lesson should be only go for it if it's safe to do so.


4.) 10 Sep 2017 18:39:08
My god if you think any of those are red cards you need to watch a different sport. Tiddlywinks or something maybe? This is a mans game and men get hurt playing it. I've had so many broken bones playing football it's unreal but you accept it. If Mane's is a red then you can chalk off Can's overhead kick from last season along with Rooney's and Andy Carrols because by kicking the ball from that height is endangering the opposition so they should all have been sent off. We have to be very careful here because without contact the sport will be boring and that's the way we are going. I'm sick of the holyer than thou brigade copy and pasting exerts from the rule book as 'proof' he should've been sent off. If that's the case then every time someone raises a boot above stomach height they have to go. It's the action of the player that warrants the card not the result of that action. Us that have played a lot of football know the cynical challenges that should be punished with red cards. I mean the over the top leg breakers or two footed lunges that can end a career. What happened yesterday was not that is was an accidental coming together but if we're now saying that's a red then let's be consistent but we'll end up with 8 a side.

{Ed002's Note - These sorts of posts are really embarrassing to read. It is all stemming from the standard Liverpool fan approach to blame someone else.}


5.) 10 Sep 2017 18:52:57
A bit like certain manager he's blamed everyone from the ballboy, to the ref, to the team doctor to the fans and the opposing manager! He must have Scouse ancestry. πŸ˜‚.


6.) 10 Sep 2017 19:04:29
Again Mane could of seriously hurt Ederson. I don't think the problem is him getting a red, it's there doesn't seem to be consistency among refs.

Is raising your foot high when no one is around dangerous play? No. But then how close does someone need to be for it to be considered dangerous?

Should it be a yellow for accidental? How do you prove it's accidental, or intentional?

This is all part of the drama that makes football exciting.

Although yesterday's sending off ruined what was supposed to be the biggest game so far this season.

The refs are employed for their judgement, hopefully someone clarifys the rules, so all judgements are the consistent. However to do that, you need to take the human out of the decision making.


7.) 10 Sep 2017 19:12:40
That was an over the top jaw breaker. The keeper is lucky to have escaped serious injury.

I did not think it was red at the time, doesn't help that the commentary was saying it was bit a red, but watching it back now fair sending off.

The more worrying issue is that we can't defend. If Klopp had an ounce of understanding about defending he would have drilled them to defend with their lives and possibly nick a goal from a set piece.

Ed02 a friend who works for Man City says the information they are getting is that a deal with Southampton has been agreed to buy VVD in Jan.

Take it is not something you have heard?

Thanks

Jon.

Jonpow

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City are buying a CB in January and I am aware of a list of 6 or 7 being considered including VVD. I am not aware of any agreement having been reached at this time.}

Would it not be in the interest of both parties then Ed02 for Liverpool (As we caused this mess) to do the right thing and ask what Southampton want and just pay it without any low balling or more pi** taking?

Do you think based on Macca's post Liverpool will move forward and pay a substantial fee which is our own doing to make the transfer happen?

Thanks in advance

Jon.

Jonpow

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what Macca has written. I have explain what would need to be done.}

I agree on that ED01 thinking more if we could say let's give you 50 million and let's be done with the matter but it obviously isn't that straight forward

Cheers for your input ed01.

Ed01 do you think it would make more financial sense and for tge good of the club to say to Southampton. look we are at fault it will be investigated and dealt with it will not happen again. The player wants a move what cost are you looking at. They say x amount and we as a club say here you go. Our apologies and let's sort a friendly with you getting the proceeds and all parties can move on.

This way we get a player and learn a lesson and aviod a ban with Southampton getting a good financial gain in the process and moving towards building bridges and some form of relationship with them again.

Thanks in advance

Jon.

Jonpow

{Ed001's Note - that would depend on how much Southampton asked for! If they turned round and said Β£100m then it would make no sense at all. However that does seem the most sensible way to fix this.}

Hey Ed01

Based on the Rafa way of setting up his teams and the training and tactical side. do you think based on the players we have currently he would have a successful team if managing us now?

Just based on how quick we attack. if we had the deep lying defence well prepared and drilled with lighting quick counter would it work in your opinion?

Cheers.

Jonpow

{Ed001's Note - not really, he would look for a different midfield.}
