Very interesting Ed001. Thanks for the insight.

{Ed001's Note - welcome. Though not sure what for!}

Hes probably referring to your excellent report on the economic viability of Briggs and Stratton lawnmower carburettors in regional Lithuania between 1974-75, Ed.

{Ed001's Note - a personal favourite of mine.}

Brilliant Virgil.

Bet salah scores two against spurs.


4.) 24 Mar 2019 20:35:22
Agree billy. Additionally, I think we will win convincingly.

Hi ED001,

I hope you are good. I was just wondering how far away you were from doing a player profile for my all time favourite Footballer - John Barnes. I saw him on the Harry's Heroes programme today so was reminded of this, although of course no immediate rush as I know how busy you are and appreciate all your efforts.

KPee

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea mate, the list is huge and I am not sure when I will get round to who to be honest, sorry.}

I watched that last night Kpee. Razor ruddock has put on one or two extra pounds!


2.) 19 Mar 2019 09:15:24
The legend that is John Barnes, the sole reason I love football so mcuh and the player who made me support Liverpool
Thank you so much John
I look forward to that article ed001 whenever it is finish.


3.) 19 Mar 2019 14:43:34
Thanks Ed001 no problem.

I agree Johncrow, great minds think alike. Barnes was an inspiration in so many ways. My first kit was a crown paints with 'Barnes 10' on the reverse. He had balance, close ball control which aided his dribbling ability to take on 2-3 players if not more. Immense strength, speed, free kick scoring ability, vision for a pass/ through ball, mental toughness which was needed at that time and especially needed in his case for the wrong reasons. Then of course the way he reinvented himself into central midfield after injury. In my opinion his ability was incredibly overlooked on a global level due to the European ban.
In my opinion a 'John Barnes' of the peak of playing career would not look out of place when talking about the usual twosome of Messi and Ronaldo. Would love to meet him in person some day and rap out world in motion.

Thanks Ed001,

I have been looking forward to reading this one in particular and cannot really debate the ratings. Easy for me to say but we really need to up our game against Watford and Everton.

KPee

{Ed001's Note - hopefully the rust is shaken off by that game.}


1.) 27 Feb 2019 04:30:18
I think you were too kind with Salah. Yes the service WA spoor, but his touch and dribbles the whole game were well off. His pass completion was very low and he constantly conceded possession. He had a poor game. He looked very jaded on my opinion.


2.) 27 Feb 2019 04:43:23
We will beat Watford, but not sure about Everton. Again it would depend on how we approach the game! Play not to lose or all out attack and score goals!

{Ed001's Note - all out attack has never won a title. Defences win leagues.}


3.) 27 Feb 2019 05:00:09
Seriously, are you just going to post the same crap on every thread. I'm all for opinions and debates, but this is mind numbing now. I almost wish Klopp would go all out attack and lose 5-2 just to say I told you so but klopp and my self for that matter, are not that stupid. Even if that did happen, you'd just find some other drum to beat no doubt. Sit down, have a cup of tea and maybe a rich tea biscuit and enjoy what is happening with this club.

Hi ED001, I hope that you are good and your back is better. I was wondering if you could please add to your ever growing list a player profile on my all-time favourite footballer - John Barnes. I think he was a tremendously talented footballer and it would be great to see how he would compare with the top tier of talent of today? I have searched the site to see if anything similar was done previously that maybe I had missed but could not find anything.
Also I wanted to say that, although I am not a regular poster, I ritually read the posts on a daily basis and I gain so much knowledge/ insight from ED001 and ED002 and fellow Reds. I am humbled by how much you guys know and can share. I also enjoy reading your match reviews and always look forward to them following matches. Cheers!

KPee

{Ed001's Note - nice choice, I can remember sitting there holding my breath each time he was fouled in case he was hurt when I was a kid. Wonderful player, I will enjoy doing a profile on him. And thank you for the compliments, nice to know you enjoy them, makes it worth doing them.}


1.) 11 Oct 2018 18:23:11
Great shout my favourite player growing up had the Candy kit with 10 on the back . proper short shorts too.
Legend!


2.) 11 Oct 2018 18:29:26
My favourite Liverpool player ever.


3.) 11 Oct 2018 18:34:59
Great post KPee.

I was a big big fan of John Barnes and his amazing crosses, what a left foot he had!
Worked wonders with Beardsley!
JB was awsome, his step-overs, back heels and little shimmy to one side but quickly switch to the other side.

And share your sentiment about this website too.


4.) 11 Oct 2018 19:16:08
I met Barnes in the summer. Got a signed signed photo and everything. Really nice bloke.


5.) 11 Oct 2018 20:00:43
I met him at the "Conti" club in Liverpool in the later days of his playing career. Having had a few shandies, the first words to come out of my mouth were, "Hey John, you're not as fat as you look on the telly". He just laughed and said "Thanks mate". My claim to fame, lol.


6.) 11 Oct 2018 20:32:23
Great shout. My favourite player too. now I look back at the climate he was playing in it makes it all the more amazing how good he was.

I will look forward to reading this profile.


7.) 11 Oct 2018 22:46:32
He was my boyhood hero. Still is, come to think of it. In my mind he was the greatest player since Pele. pace, power, precision, he had it all. His goal against Brazil showcased all his talents in just a few seconds. Oh to go back in time and see him playing again. thank God for YouTube😎.


8.) 12 Oct 2018 12:22:46
Thanks Ed001, Guys,

It’s great that we share the same sentiments.
My very first LFC top was the final one they did with the Crown Paints before the sponsorship deal ended. I had the number 10 on the reverse. Of course back then, they didn’t have players names on the reverse (showing my age now) . Like yourselves I idolised him and tried to play like him. As a player he was just something else. He could dribble effortlessly and make it look so simple and skip passed 1-3 players at a given time. He had a great eye for a pass/ through ball. Crossing ability was accurate. Scored some amazing ‘rare headed goals’ as they used to say. Free kick ability was top notch. Aside from these abilities some of things we do not often mention is his pace, power, closing down the ball, technical ability, radical change of position due to injury, and of course playing in a period when there were many crowd taunts towards him. People today, talk about the ‘usual’ 2 some of Messi and Ronaldo whom I agree are great gifted footballers of today. Call me biased but I would put Barnes at his peak above them. I have not yet had the chance to meet him, but would love to and have a photograph and autograph and maybe sing along with him his rap on World in Motion. I am looking forward to ED001’s profile as he really does see things from a totally different perspective to us mere mortals and that includes commentators and analysts.

Thanks!

Evening fellow Reds,

Just seen BBC site reporting that Lallana wants to leave them after WC.

I agree that 30mn is simply overpriced and we could get a good alternative.

KPee

{Ed007's Note - Why would he be leaving the BBC?}


1.) Very good Ed007, you got me there ;-)
Perhaps he's interesting in joining LFC to be their own future journalist


2.) {Ed007's Note - Why would he be leaving the BBC?}

===========

Apparently they will only pay for the room but not the mini bar, so he was n't happy, it was a bit like forgetting his birthday. So he is handing in a transfer request, he wants to join ITV instead


3.) Damn these spoilt footballers :-)


4.) I'm hugely disappointed by this. I was hoping Lallana would get a presenting spot on Countryfile in the near future.


5.) Heard he didn't want a surprise party but they just couldn't help themselves he got a fit because they got him a Rory The Racing Car cake but he wanted Dora


6.) I heard he's leaving the BBC because they didn't have the decency to say "happy birthday"

Thanks ED001,

A very good summary as per usual.
I must admit I too am very nervous before games. Also didn't sleep well the 2 nights before the final.

As deflated as the final turned out in terms of performance from both teams, Spurs mustered an increase in tempo somewhat in the final minutes of 5-10mins of the game and forced some fine saves from Alisson and nervy moments of defending. I do feel that had Origi not scored potentially Spurs could have scored in what time remained. Hence I thought it was a crucial goal at the most critical point in the game.

Switching to the Premiership, next season will for sure be interesting. If it is likely that Poch will leave Spurs, Chelsea - yet another change of manager with their Talisman leaving for Madrid, and both Man Utd and Arsenal going through a massive squad overhaul it is likely to leave again ourselves and City to battle it out. Pep will need to transition some of the older players - Kompany has already left, Silva Aguero and Fernandinho (arguably the spine and experience of the team) . We can hope that such changes/ new players bedding in will cause a change in dynamics. In contrast we look a settled young team looking for reinforcements for potential injuries and to improve squad quality. With the experience of winning a major trophy we hope that players will have a taste for more success.

Special mentions to ED001 for the concisely written match reports which are always an eye opening read, and for ED002 for providing credibal insight into transfer activity and the business side of
football to keep us mere mortals upto speed. I'm sure I speak for the masses when I say your efforts are hugely appreciated. Peace!

Good post and a tough call to make given the good form of the midfield, personally I would go for Wijnaldum, Fabinho and Henderson. With Milner coming off from the bench as a reliable experienced option as legs tire or if needed tactically. Spurs are a team who will also have large amounts of the ball. We will need the technical ability of Wijnaldum, Henderson's energy and Fabinho's ball winning skills to stifle Spurs very own energy and possession. It will for sure be a tactical battle. I'm not sure both teams will play an open game given what's on the line.
For me it is a one off game that could go either way. I think we have the edge purely as we have the experience of knowing how it feels to lose a final. For sure this should be added source of motivation to the squad.

Thanks ED001, interesting to read your analysis as always. Question for you. if you were to take one Wolves player who would you sign that could compliment our Squad? I say 'squad' as I do not believe any would make our first team but happy to be proved wrong. I personally like Coady. Ok, he used to play for us but I think he could do a job covering our defence if one of Lovren or Matip were to leave in the future. Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - Doherty or Jiminez for me.}

Brilliant review ED001. I love the words you used in reference to VVD "bestrode like a collosus'.
Also just my humble observation that you can easily see the team spirit so high and the mutual trust they have for one another. The midfield 3 of Henderson, Milner and Fab were warriors - closing down, harassing, tackling. It was the engine room.
Barcelona just could not cope with this along with the pace and physicality. They are spoilt with so much respect and time in La Liga but hopefully this can now give other teams confidence to exploit Barcelona for what we had always felt they were - a weakened team and not the Barcelona of old.

KPee

{Ed001's Note - unfortunately other teams just think Barca are still too good as they are not at Liverpool's level. I doubt anything will change in Spain, though Barca have not been as dominant this season so you never know.}

Well said Swifty. I didn't appreciate the way he celebrated at their place and all of a sudden he recalls he needs to go back to Anfield and tries to fool us fans. I think we learn the hard way what a slime ball he is. But anyway, come what may the players used all of this in the right way to motivate them more.
