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.}

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.

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.

6.) 20 Aug 2018 17:59:46
Oh man! I miss the bald headed buffoon 😂.

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.

3.) 02 Jul 2018 18:32:30
Agree with you, FTR.

Hey Eds,
I was just reading your long list of right backs we've looked at and wondered if we still hold interest in Ricardo Pereira, or has it moved on or is he off somewhere else? Thanks a mil. Enjoy the season finale!

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - I believe he is off somewhere else.}

1.) 20 Apr 2018 10:37:34
Where do I find this long list of right backs?

2.) 20 Apr 2018 10:45:14
On a list with a lot of named right backs.
Happy to help. :-)

3.) 20 Apr 2018 14:40:50
{Ed001's Note - yes right back, we have looked at hundreds mate, bit soon to get certain names of the likely targets. We have looked at Hysaj, but I would expect him to be out of reach now with Napoli not wanting to sell. The Sociedad right back Odriozola, though he is a bit too attacking for my liking, as he also play midfield. There are a few in Germany, Heinrichs, Elvedi and Weiser and the Leipzig one, whose name I have forgotten. Lots more too though how many of them will even be in the thinking when it comes time to try and buy one I don't know right now. Oh Bilbao's right back. }

If anyone wants to find it again in future, just search for Odriozola.

4.) 20 Apr 2018 19:01:27
Lol love the reply killinghome, thanks MK.

5.) 22 Apr 2018 14:31:46
Hehe, yep that's exactly the post I had read, except I searched for Elvedi. Names like these make the search function easy. ;)

Oh wow, I am honoured. Thank you, Eds. It looks so great on your news page. :)

{Ed033's Note - Thanks for submitting the article

2.) 11 Sep 2018 00:13:29
Cheers dude, i enjoyed that. Robbo played again tonight, actually think he was one of the lesser performers for Scotland, quite a few wrong decisions when attacking, but also played a few nice balls in. Best Scotland performance I've seen for a while, it has to be said, but Albania were terrible.

3.) 11 Sep 2018 00:50:59
Thank you Jurgen Meister.

4.) 11 Sep 2018 09:49:21
Cheers Salah mate.
Yeah RP i think he should've had a shot a couple of times instead of passing but he gave them a good wide-left option as he does for us and put some dangerous balls into the box including a beauty for the first goal. One explosive run up the wing and perfect cutback for McGregor was particularly tasty. Scotland are a very limited side and it's true Albania were dreadful, but the captaincy looks like it will only give Robbo more and more confidence. I'm really impressed with how much he's grown as a player and person in just one year. (watch the 'everyday dilemmas' video of him and Millie, funny stuff) . I can only see him growing and growing from here and getting better and better.

Elsewhere last night, Rafa Camacho came off the bench to play 40 minutes for Portugal U19 as they lost again to Italy this time 3-1.

Oh and I'd totally missed that Virgil played 90 and Gini the first half of Netherlands 2-1 win over Peru last Thursday. They should be back home by now along with the African lads. Also, I'm just after reading reports from Brazil saying Tite will start Neto, Militao and Richarlison instead of Alisson, Fabinho and Firmino against El Salvadore, so that's good news for our Scouse Samba Stars' fitness.

5.) 11 Sep 2018 13:10:55
Got to say i'm loving having the Scotland captain playing for Liverpool, nothing wrong with a little national pride. Last night was even better for me as Stephen O'Donnell who plays for my hometown team had an absolute belter of a game, hope he's nailed that position down as he's so much more suited than Ryan Fraser.



19 Aug 2018 14:08:25
Everyone, seen this fly-on-the-wall footage of Pep (rightly) quaking in his boots over our front 3? It made me feel very proud. :)

I can see an epic battle between City and Liverpool for the title this season, one which I hope we win, of course.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 19 Aug 2018 21:01:26
I saw this on youtube, man. Pep was terrified of us and even his assistants making smug comments about LFC, he just swatted those comments aside and kept talking about the front 3 and Salah. He was terrified of Salah esp. And as history would have it, for good reason.

2.) 20 Aug 2018 07:14:08
Shows why he is such a good manager, he’s better at analysing (the game and other teams) than all his assistants.



29 Jul 2018 23:40:22
Hi guys,
I'm just curious so that i know in future. But what was the reason that my rather long and heart-felt piece after the United game didn't get posted? Was there something you didn't like? Too partisan? Too enthusiastic? I would really just like some advice and/ or explanation so that I don't waste my words in future. What are the preferred criteria and for what reason was it decided that the post in question shouldn't be put up?
Thanks and kind regards,

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - I don't see any post in your posting history that you could be referring to. So I have no idea, it might not have come through.}



25 Jul 2018 10:48:30
Ed001 do you still expect Fekir to sign for Liverpool this summer?
Ed002 why has it gone so quiet on the transfer front? Is it just a smokescreen to conceal the fact that we're going to swoop in and sign a marquee player who has been on our radar for some time before the window SLAMS shut?

(sorry, I was bored, I'll get back top work, so. )

Jurgen Meister

1.) 25 Jul 2018 10:58:20
don’t you think we have signed enough marquee signings jurgen?
it’s gone quiet because what more done really need to sign? Fekir is just the cherry on top but it’s not necessarily needed lol.

2.) 25 Jul 2018 11:08:46
*do we* not 'done*.

3.) 25 Jul 2018 11:11:09
I think Jurgen was being tongue and cheek.

4.) 25 Jul 2018 11:19:23
Jurgen you have really settled into English life really well, your sarcasm is perfect. Pity our Brazilian friends haven't got it!
But seriously eds why haven't you done more to keep us informed on our next big marquee signing, you call yourselves itk. Perhaps you should give the Lyon President an honorary ed position he certainly seems to have a lot of inside knowledge that he likes to talk about?

5.) 25 Jul 2018 11:19:29
Apologies if you was Jurgen, there’s just been so many people asking about Fekir I don’t know who is playing and who is being genuinely stupid anymore ;_;

6.) 25 Jul 2018 11:22:17
Yeah sorry Phil, I was just being annoying and trying to get as many football transfer clichés into one paragraph as possible. It wasn't a real question so much as a collection of the Ed's favorite things to be asked. I'm sure they could list a hundred more.

7.) 25 Jul 2018 12:36:19
That was nearly perfect Jurgen. All you were missing was mentioning a "cheeky bid"

8.) 25 Jul 2018 12:45:05
Im a bit disappointed there have been no rumours about a Fox in the Box this window.

9.) 25 Jul 2018 12:48:37
I believe ed02 also loves to hear about a bid "being prepared"

10.) 25 Jul 2018 13:00:51
Red lorry, how old is KEN AGUERO? is he still young enough to be fox in box or had that ship unfortunately sailed? On his day was 10times the player fekir was from what I recall.

11.) 25 Jul 2018 13:43:19
We haven't been linked with a Fox In The Box since Klopp took over. he likes to Gegenpress gegenpress gegenpress gegenpress and a fox in the box doesn't fit. but if Sturridge can stay fit, he could be that Plan B. I wish Macca was here.

Ed002 what caliber of goalkeeper would you say they'd be looking at to replace Mignolet? I can't imagine too many good ones being happy to sign as backup. Any names going around?
Thanks a mil.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - Previously the club set the sights too high with the likes of Andriy Lunin and Thomas Strakosha and they are off the table. Other clubs are looking at persuading first pick players from what might be considered second tier leagues to make the move - Jeroen Zoet is one such example for another side at the moment. Many of the smarter clubs will look to Home Grown players (like Atletico did with Antonio Adán, like Manchester United did with Lee Grant, Chelsea with Asmir Begović, Roma did with Antonio Mirante) when the count of HG players is an issue.}

I'm sorry I haven't time to read the whole thread atm, only respond to the OP, because I take exception to this question being asked over and over. He has not been 'so poor', he's just lacing a little bit of his sharpness that he had in abundance last season but it will come. He is still frightening the pants off defenders and getting into those Oh-So-Salah type positions. I've said it repeatedly benching him would be the worst thing to do and I'm glad Klopp agrees. On the other hand, it is just really nice to have another option now that we didn't have last season. Plenty of games coming and both he and Shaq will be needed.

PS: I think it's time to give Keita a run of starts.

Ooohhh yeeeeah, haha, Brewster TOTALLY slipped my mind there yesterday. Right so, problem solved, once Brewster is fit it'll be neither Solanke or Origi, sorry lads!
And Firmane I agree Sturridge is second choice but I'm thinking more long-term and specifically who has or hasn't got a future at the club.
Our first team squad is so good and solid now that it only leaves the backup guys to even talk about.
Outs -> Mignolet, Clyne, Moreno, Lallana, Origi, Solanke

No worries I found it all by myself. Go me!
I'm a little torn because I think Solanke has more developing to do but I'm not sure how much potential he really has, while Origi has had more time to reach his potential but has so far pretty badly failed to do so. In retrospect perhaps signing Solanke and loaning out Origi was a mistake. I'd be happy to see them playing and scoring for us or sb else, but there simply isn't room for both at Liverpool.
I liked Origi a lot when he was in our team, although he could be infuriatingly inconsistent, but Solanke has the advantage of age, Englishness and contract length. Perhaps an unfair advantage for Origi, but the reality all the same.
I'd be interested in your and other readers' opinions on comparing the two directly and which people would pick.
Thanks again Ed001.

Jurgen Meister

Ed001 am I mistaken or do I recall you saying you'd prefer Origi to be the one given that chance? Or perhaps that was in comparison to Sturridge or Ings, not sure.
I know Solanke and Origi are quite different, so which do you think is best suited to this team and has more potential to remain useful beyond this season, if either?
Also, where can I find any player profiles you've done on Liverpool players?
Thanks a million as always.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - I do think Origi has more to offer yes. As for player profiles, they are on the player profile site in the drop down menu at the top. Sorry am on my phone at the dentist so can't put the link in.}

Regarding Tuesday's starting lineup I actually think it was a big mistake to leave Shaqiri at home, he should've started instead. Football is supposed to be separate from politics but I also think any controversy would've been more of a 'distraction' to the Belgrade players than ours. Shaq on the right with Salah up front. Or even better, the aforementioned 4-2-3-1 with Fabinho also replacing Lallana. I really hope to dog that we never ever see both Lallana and Sturridge start another game together.

Yeah absolutely laughable that this discussion even exists after a couple of bad away days in Europe. The team can and will play better this season and when they hit their groove and win 10 in a row I'll remind you of this, Walt. It's only you and some knobs on twatter spouting this nonsense. Unbeaten in the league after playing all of the other top 5? 3 of those games away from home where we picked up 5 points? Like seriously mate, either you're havin a laugh or your expectations are just ridiculous. So easy for armchair 'fans' and keyboard warriors to criticize players and staff who try their best and work in the club's interest every day.

We've got a great squad but I think it has 1 or 2 areas that could be strengthened. The main one for me would be a right-back. I love TAA but I think it's wrong to rely on such a young player to be our first choice RB. With teams targeting him and his form patchy he needs to be taken out for some games and rotated to recover focus and form. That and a Fekir/ Demirbay type player to add some creativity. Meanwhile, bring on Fulham.

Thanks for the review Ed001. Very good points about Keita and Mane. With Mahrez and Walker on that side I think Robertson should've been told to hold back at some point to allow Keita to get forward which would've made more space for Mane. Either that or as I was actually hoping to see Shaqiri replace Mane and be given the freedom to find the space. Not really I bad result I suppose but we were lucky to get the point with the way we played. Nice now that we've an easier run of fixtures than all the rest coming up. A 10 game winning streak in all comps would see us right, including Arsenal, Everton and United. I actually think the break came at the right time, seems we need to refocus a bit.
