Eds any idea what happened with Bobby Adekanye? Was the Lazio move ever on and what does his future have in store at Liverpool or elsewhere?
Thanks a bunch.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - There was no deal with Lazio - but it is down to another player wanting first team time - a growing problem.)


1.) 01 Feb 2019 23:03:24
are you allowed to mention the player in question? are we talking about a certain striker who is out injured at the moment.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry I wasn't clear. Adekanye is another player who thinks he should be starting for the first team.}


2.) 02 Feb 2019 08:14:19
Ahh with you! Mean he has had a few good games but has lacked the consistency to be getting into the first team squad!

{Ed002's Note - There is a significant issue with young players wanting, and in some cases, demanding first team football.}


3.) 02 Feb 2019 13:47:39
Specifically Liverpool or generally?

I think Media hype means youth players see themselves as superstars already rather than having to keep your head down and work hard for the opportunity.

Interesting stuff on The Injury Insight about Fekir's knees.

Eds if we assume that Klopp still wants a leftish creative mid, are any of y'all aware of any Liverpool are looking at?
Thanks a bunch.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool making efforts to look at any specific left-sided midfield players at this time and I would not expect too much to happen in January beyond clearing the decks if they can of Lazar Markovic and perhaps Chirivella and Origi if he is not being used. They are still looking at players but I am not aware of any desire to add another in midfield at this time.}


1.) 13 Sep 2018 09:07:45
Okay cool, thanks amillion Ed002.


2.) 13 Sep 2018 11:12:41
Thank you Jurgen Meister for the reference to 'The Injury Insight'. A good informative web site which I wasn't familiar with before your post.
Cheers.


3.) 13 Sep 2018 11:48:27
That really is a great article. Thanks for sharing Jurgen Meister.


4.) 13 Sep 2018 12:18:18
My pleasure guys, yep it's very interesting site alright.
I'm just trying to work my way through the 'Karius Concussion Conundrum' article now. :)


5.) 13 Sep 2018 17:54:23
What a great article Jurgen Meister, I personally am recovering from an ACL injury right now and I had the same surgery type as Fekir which is interesting (involving the process of replacing your ACL with a cadaver’s) .


6.) 14 Sep 2018 07:48:00
Interesting read.
The mere fact that Liverpool went after Fekir so strongly, in knowledge of his knee problems, was surely testament to Klopp’s admiration of his ability.
It’s a shame about his injuries, and I hope he goes on to have a long and successful career, but I do think that pulling out of the deal was the right move in the end.
I don’t know if Fekir had wowed at the World Cup whether that would have made any difference at all, I suspect not, but it doesn’t look likely that Lyon will be getting that type of offer for Fekir in the future.


 

 

20 Aug 2018 10:25:31
Just reading that it's looking like Karius will get his move but Migs could stay, for now. Do you believe this to be the case Eds?
Thanks very much.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - possibly, but Migs' reps are still trying to get him a move.}


1.) 20 Aug 2018 13:57:18
Is there a possibility that they could both leave and we have the youngsters as back up.


2.) 20 Aug 2018 13:52:59
If both get a move are there any free agents we could move for as back up?


3.) 20 Aug 2018 14:20:24
Is the move permanent?


4.) 20 Aug 2018 14:20:48
Pepe Reina?


5.) 20 Aug 2018 17:42:25
Reina joined AC Milan in the summer.

John Achterberg was in Tallaght on Friday to watch promising goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu. The 16 year old Bazunu is keeping 36 year old veteran keeper Alan Mannus out of the side atm, after taking his place due to injury and keeping 3 vlean sheets in a row so far. This kid has a bright future and is also attracting interest from other English clubs including Brighton and Norwich.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 02 Jul 2018 13:01:29
I'm a little perplexed whether some people can read properly when sb clicks the thumbs down on a post that stats facts, not opinion. The only thing I can think of is that 'vlean' is not a word, in which case, you got me.


2.) 02 Jul 2018 16:02:19
There's an old Yorkshire saying that goes "there's nowt queer as folk".
In a nutshell it means that some people are numpties.
Don't let people disliking what you post bother you, life's too short.

I spotted something quirky yesterday while browsing the birth dates of our players for some unknown reason. (while doing a very good impression of working) . It looks likely that we will lose most if not all of our remaining players born in the 80s. A great decade, but that's a good thing. Letting go of Mignolet, Lovren, Milner, Lallana and Sturridge will see a large chunk off our wage bill without affecting the team a great deal (and the couple of fullbacks) . Then just replace those with younger hungry players on lower wages (from within or without) and we're all set. Our squad only needs streamlining this summer, maybe one major signing but that's it.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 21 Mar 2019 09:35:38
Milner is still earning his money for me. Take weekend for example.


2.) 21 Mar 2019 10:18:56
I agree, Milner is an exceptional case and I would be happy to see him stay, but there is the possibility of him leaving for Leeds.


3.) 23 Mar 2019 12:00:15
I would not try to replace Milner and Lovren. If they want to stay or not is another matter.


 

 

14 Mar 2019 11:27:13
G'day Ed002, hope you're well.
You recently said "perhaps Pablo Sarabia has the skill set you want. "

I tend to agree I think he would be a perfect signing, and I just read that he's available on an €18 million release clause, is that so?

Did you mean that Liverpool has an interest in him or were you simply making a general observation about his skill set?

Thank you in advance for any answer and any insight into Sarabia's situation and possible destination.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - I was just saying that in my view he would be a suitable attacking solution iof Liverpool needed one, and at a reasonable price - I would put aside the release clause as one EPL side has already held discussions, and Real Madid has an option.}


1.) 14 Mar 2019 12:36:31
I tell you what, recently origi has really won me over. I think he has the skill set to fill in at cf or lw. With keita lallana and shaqiri I think we have enough cover for the front three.

Sturridge, ah Danny boy. Loved him with suarez and also with sterling but his heart isn't in it anymore. I would ship him and hope brewster or Duncan can break through. If not I think we could look to signing a young striker with potential, I'd never heard of coutinio until we signed him. There must be some great little players out there for low sums. But yeah, origi. I totally underestimated the lad. He's only young and I think he can forge a Liverpool career. That said, if we win the league by 1 point Danny's goal at Chelsea will be seen as pivitol.

The question is always finding players willing to play second fiddle to our amazing front three. I believe we have them in the players I mentioned.

Question for anyone who knows, has keita ever played as a forward. He seems to have the perfect skill set to make it in our front three. Can beat players, can track back and can hit a belter of a shot.

I don't think we need much in the way of new signings. Cover for robbo, love alby but he is too rash. I think we have enough at rb with fab milly, hendo and gomez able to cover. We could do with a better back up than migs. Seeing his sulky face every week, even when 3 1 up at bayern is pissing me off. Maybe karius could provide decent cover.

The one position for me is a true attacking mid, high class who scores 8 to 10 goals a season. I know its not popular but I would love pipco back. Fekir is nowhere near as good as couts. I know counts is unpopular but he is a player of the highest quality. When he played the autumn before he left he was class behind Bobby mane and salah. If not courts or Fekir, who do people like? Rodriguez has been a name thrown about be he didn't do much last night. Mind you fab was all over him.


2.) 14 Mar 2019 12:58:25
I agree on Origi Robbies, he knows our system now and nobody can deny his workrate, a solid option for Bobby if you ask me.


3.) 14 Mar 2019 12:59:28
Does Maxi Rodriguez still play football?


4.) 14 Mar 2019 15:25:16
I agree with origi too, don’t forget Brewster outshined sancho and foden at the wc before his injury so big potential.


5.) 14 Mar 2019 13:58:35
Okay thanks a lot Ed002. I won't get my hopes up then. I guess he'd fancy a return to Madrid. I know he's pals with Carvajal. Will wait and see if Liverpool splosh a load of dosh on a goal-scoring midfielder like Bruno Fernandes.

{Ed002's Note - Bruno Fernandes (AM) is of interest to Everton, Manchester United, Milan and Liverpool who have all looked at him on two or more occasions. Spurs maintain an interest but only if Christian Eriksen leaves. Asking price has more than doubled from what was already a high price in recent months and that has pushed aside interest from Juventus who don't see the value, Valencia and CSKA. Whilst Bayern Munich and another EPL side have looked as well, neither have a declared interest that I know of and both have other AM targets.}


6.) 14 Mar 2019 19:20:47
Big Div makes things happen, he’s one of those players who doesn’t look like a superstar but he is very effective. Less of a risk to stick with him than buying another newbie.


7.) 14 Mar 2019 20:56:08
Lerchy-Brewster played the full tournament and Sancho was pulled by Dortmund after the group stage.


8.) 14 Mar 2019 19:08:39
Is there any chance of Liverpool signing Christian erikson? He would be perfect for us.

{Ed002's Note - No.}


9.) 14 Mar 2019 22:11:05
With you there, Robbie. I have NEVER given up on Divvy even in his worst moments. Why? WE all saw how great he was in his first season with us where he was just bossing several games, toying with CB's like they were out of fashion, keeping Studge on the bench and all that. He then got injured and it seems like his chance had gone.

I never believed that cos I am confident that the promising Origi we saw in the beginning, is still there and we can still see it in him in the games he has played this season. I believe he can still be a factor for us going forward BUT it will be up to him and also what Klopp wants in the transfer market. I am still hoping he wcan come good for us whether thru the middle or out wide cos he has ALL the tools needed to play these positions, IMO.


 

 

08 Mar 2019 15:11:01
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been playing for Liverpool's Under-23s against Derby. He was expected to play for the first half but was taken off four minutes before the break. Carl Markham, the Press Association reporter at Derby's training ground, says "he was maybe holding his right hamstring".

Jurgen Meister

1.) 08 Mar 2019 15:36:48
I've just checked this out and apparently, yes, he was substituted in the 41st minute but didn't Klopp say he was only playing 1 half anyway? Strange that they wouldn't of just kept him on until half time? let's hope it's not too serious.


2.) 08 Mar 2019 15:38:34
It is expected. Training can only do so much, an actual game will pull and move your body on instinct in ways you forgot how. He will have niggles here and there as he makes he way back. Great to see him back btw.


3.) 08 Mar 2019 17:26:31
Apparently it was just a precaution, no point in taking any risks.


4.) 08 Mar 2019 18:02:59
I have seen countless times, when a player coming back from a long injury lay off, suffer hamstring or other muscle injuries. It seems to be perfectly normal. What is important is what happens tmrw when Ox wakes up to see if there is any reaction/ swelling in his knee after today. IMO, that is what to watch for.


5.) 08 Mar 2019 19:20:49
Fingers crossed for a smooth recovery for the lad. He'll be like a new signing next season for us should he keep fit.


6.) 08 Mar 2019 20:00:41
RedWolf is absolutely right. Not uncommon to pick up additional niggles and strains when returning from such a long lay off. The hamstrings offer a stabilising effect to the knee similar to that of the acl when under tension. Hamstrings rehab will have been intense and that may increase risk of fatigue. As far as match involvement there will be regular acceleration/ deceleration movements that can be replicated in training but the endurance aspect of the game on top of that probably wouldn’t be. Those elements of rehab would often be performed in isolation. Match scenarios would recently have been implemented in training but it’s very unlikely they would reach maximum intensity particularly from the recovering player. It’s only really during competitive activity the the individual will not hold back and tend to switch off from their injury.

Cheers.

{Ed025's Note - great insight there Dr greggers..nice one mate..


7.) 08 Mar 2019 20:34:25
And chance of getting back to pre-injury level of fitness and especially performance Greggers?


8.) 08 Mar 2019 21:52:50
Very difficult to say with such a complex injury. The odds probably aren’t stacked in his favour given the extent of the injury, however with continued improvements in surgical techniques and post operative protocols there is certainly a chance. I think a lot of patience will be required especially given the psychological recovery needed also. Assuming he doesn’t suffer any major setbacks in his recovery it may be a year plus before we see him at his best. Every case is different though. I think the best thing is for us fans to not place to much expectation on his performances and afford him time.

Cheers.


9.) 08 Mar 2019 22:13:58
Brilliant greggers.


10.) 08 Mar 2019 22:19:24
Great post Greggers, thank you.


11.) 08 Mar 2019 22:20:44
Are you a brick layer by any chance Greggers. 🤔

No seriously, you sound well informed on this and thanks for your input, it does make a lot of sense what your saying.


12.) 08 Mar 2019 22:40:32
Tried roofing with the old man but ultimately I was crap, probably would have caused more leaks and couldn’t cope with the early starts. Eventually became a physio after realising I wasn’t going to make it as a footballer and figured I would stay involved in footy by being the guy who could run on the pitch with the magic sponge. That never quite materialised but still in the physio field.

More than happy to try and give insight to injuries when I can.

Cheers.


13.) 09 Mar 2019 08:20:21
Nice one mate. Sensible and sobering advice on the Ox’s prognosis.
Whether he comes off a few minutes early in his first game back is neither here or there really, providing it was nothing serious.
But he’s got a difficult road back and, as you say, we should just give the lad a break and support him all the way.
Thanks Greggers, and all the luck in the world to the Ox Man.


14.) 09 Mar 2019 10:44:55
Thanks Greggers 👍
Would I be right in suggesting that the hamstrings are sometimes used to repair the acl? Thought I had heard that somewhere and may explain the Ox’s difficulty.

Great to see him getting a run out. I think he’ll heal psychologically just fine, he seems to have his head screwed on to me 👍.


15.) 09 Mar 2019 13:16:44
Yes hamstrings grafts are commonly used in acl repairs and this can have an impact on maximal strength achieved in the muscle post surgery, however findings are variable on this. It would be more prohibitive to early hamstrings work post surgery rather than now. Given it was a multi-ligament injury I’m not sure whether they would have used natural grafts or allografts (artificial) ones.

Cheers.


 

 

27 Feb 2019 13:57:28
Just read your review of the United game, Ed001. I'm curious what Sturridge got the 1.5 marks for? Lacing his boots the right way? ;)

I strongly agree re Origi, he has to play as a central striker up against the CBs. While Shaq should be playing up the right wing as against Newcastle and Arsenal instead of coming deep to get the ball and running around in circles to nowhere.
Really hoping if either or both start tonight that they will carry out our wishes. And that Sturridge remains firmly planted on the bench for the remainder of the season.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure he did have them on the right foot or laced properly....}


1.) 27 Feb 2019 17:18:50
He put his shirt on the right way around and his socks were on the correct feet 0.75 for each.


2.) 27 Feb 2019 18:08:28
The fact that Rashford on one leg, put in more effort and ran more sprints than a fit Studge did, is all you need to know how dreadful he was. He gets a 0 for that alone. He needs to go so we can move on to other things.


3.) 27 Feb 2019 18:11:47
I get the impression Origi is trying to mimic Firmino's variety of movement without really understanding it.

He'd be best off concentrating on engaging the CBs, and running into the channels when he's allowed space.

{Ed025's Note - he,d be best off...at accrington SR.. :)


4.) 27 Feb 2019 18:37:37
Ha, I'd been wondering recently why Origi had been used more than Sturridge. And the Studge came off the bench vs manU and it became clear.


5.) 27 Feb 2019 18:28:21
Or Everton, 25?

Digs aside, he's got the raw materials to be a decent player. Pace, power, decent finisher and his technique is good enough. His movement just let's him down.

I think he's out of contract at the end of the season and will probably leave anyway.

{Ed025's Note - unfortunately SR studge is like the tin man from the wizard of oz mate .....he does,nt have a heart, he has ability of that there is no doubt, but most of the time he just cant be arsed and half of the time he says hes injured its just an excuse..


6.) 27 Feb 2019 19:02:02
It may have been excuses in the past, but now, I think Sturridge may very well have become genuinely physically unable for the Premier League. Maybe, maybe if he got a run of games he'd learn to adapt his game to not having any pace anymore, cos he's technically still one of the best players around, and he might get another couple of years. But it's unlikely, and he's certainly not going to get that chance at Liverpool.

I was talking about Origi though :p.

{Ed025's Note - oh right sorry....but hes just as bad mate.. :)


7.) 27 Feb 2019 20:00:35
Funny but true ed025 regarding Sturridge, he has only really had 1 decent season with Liverpool and the reason for that was playing alongside Suarez.
I know Suarez was a rat with his antics but he was so driven that season that he lifted the players atround him. Sturridge has done nothing since, for the reasons you have given.

{Ed025's Note - i think so greenflash, he was afforded so much space because suarez ran defenders ragged, rat of a person but one hell of a talent mate..


 

 

27 Feb 2019 09:51:41
Hey Eds, any truth in reports that Julian Brandt is available for a release clause of just €25 million at the end of this season? Any insight very much appreciated as always,
thanks very much.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - It would be of no relevance to Liverpool.}


1.) 27 Feb 2019 10:31:10
Aha, okay thanks Ed002.


2.) 27 Feb 2019 12:32:15
Ed002 are we interested in any other forward apart from Brandt, Werner and Fekir?

{Ed002's Note - Interest in Brandt went when Salah arrived. Shaqiri arrived instead of Fekir. Brewster should be able to fill in for departing forwards.}

Haha, 'touted as surplus'? What does that even mean? Yeah I remember the Gini 'rumours' as well. Apparently Cocu wanted him at Fenerbahce, right? Yeah well I'm not surprised, but I want $1,000,000 in my bank account but wanting ain't getting. Gini was never available for transfer, is our most important midfielder atm and is happy playing for one of the top teams in world football. Ain't going nowhere.

Ohhhhhhhh Arda Turan! Arda, Arda, Arda, etc. etc.
That rumour should've had it's own terrace song. Just sayin. :)

So let's say Milner and Lallana leave. Eds is Grujic likely to leave also? Even so, then let's say Kane and Jones go on loan for the season. And we sign a creative goal-scoring midfielder (which Zielinski is not) . That still leaves us with Fab, Trent, Hendo, Gini, Naby, Ox.
I would argue that it makes more sense to play Grujic than buy Zielinski. But that's just me and my very average teeth!

hahaha. Yes the Spain U21 international Aaron Martin, not the 29 year old Exeter City centre-back Aaron Martin, with all due respect to him. :)

Other notable young left-backs with contracts expiring in 2020 include Hertha's Maximilian Mittelstädt who's having a good season and Rennes' Ramy Bensebaini, who I saw against Arsenal and looked decent if unspectacular.

Red67 most teams attack us down our right, mostly because Virgil's on the other side and yes Trent gets caught out occasionally, but that's the risk Klopp chooses to take. The fact is Trent is part of the best defensive unit in the league. Goals conceded: 18 Clean sheets: 17 and it would be the reverse except for the triple brain-fart on Sunday. It will take an exceptional signing to improve on Trent as a RB.

I don't think we'll miss Dejan if he leaves. Matip is younger and seems to have put his fitness issues behind him. Let Lovren leave to go be first choice and bring in Dael Fry, who can also play RB (at least under Pulis) .

"I am not sure why he can’t trust his substitutes. Most of those are his own purchases and some are on extended contracts given by him. "

Huh? Sunday's 7 subs: Mignolet, Trent, Keita, Lallana, Shaqiri, Origi, Sturridge.
Players signed by Klopp: 2
Players on long-term contracts: 3

I'm no mathematician, but 2/ 7 and 3/ 7 = uhm.

I'm not thrilled about the prospect of starting Moreno either, but Robbo hurt himself towards the end at OT and will have trips to Kazakhstan and San Marino during the international break. If Moreno's not even good enough to play the odd home game and give Robbo a wee rest then I see no point in him even being in the squad. This is the only midweek game we've got for the remainder of the season other than the CL, so if not now then when? Never! I hear you all shout. LOL.
