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!

{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.}

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.

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😎.

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"

Hi Redmen,

Just watching CL Final and excites me thinking we will be CL next season. Wondering if we will be able to roll so called quality teams aside we did Arsenal, Spurs, MU etc etc. Do we think we will come across more tactically astute teams such as Chelsea? Be good to hear your opinions.

KPee

1.) Did arsenal not beat Liverpool twice last season!


2.) No afarid not they one at home at we trashed them at home similar scoreline we beat spurs by.


3.) Affraid yes, they beat you in the FA cup aswell

Hi Reds and Ed's,

Struggling to get over 50mn valuation for David Luiz. I am happy LFC carefully negotiate and evaluate transfers. There has been much criticism of LFC's ability to close deals. If it were my money - I think I would be the same!

Anyway, there is no way in my book that Luiz is valued at 50mn. I would probably go for 15 to 20mn. He's not being playing regularly and is a liability in defence.

1.) 23 May 2014 15:47:57
Imagine How much they will offfer for some of our players.
Sturridge 80 mil
Countinho 50 mill
Sterling 50 mill
Suarez - You could Imagine.


2.) It is apparently the whole package, including his wages.

{Ed002's Note - I am hoping you are all seeing why it is best not to discuss money.}


3.) Yes, very much so.


4.) 23 May 2014 17:39:20
The Real AG

Don't think So, Mata was sold at 38 mill (excluding his wages).

{Ed002's Note - Not that either.}


5.) Dont let it worry you too much KPee!


6.) Thanks Marshy, just laughable really


7.) 24 May 2014 06:53:54
Sure, think I've opened a can of worms there Ed002 ;-) Get your point. Was just taken aback by the fee

{Ed002's Note - But you are making all of the numbers up - it is one of the reasons we ignore finances. You guess at transfer fees and ignore other costs. It is a joke.}

Hi All,

To echo thoughts, I am in agreement that we have had great season.

Yes, we have challenged To the last game of the season,

Yes, we have battled and all bar Man C come out on top against the so called richer clubs where the difference has been 2 points and goal difference.

In Man City we have battled a team of world class established talent consisting of Aguero, Silva, Kompany, Toure and arguably Negredo, Hart list could go on.

At LFC we have a list of stars in the making. It is scary to think that the likes of Hendo, Flanagan, Sterling, Sturridge, Coutinho, Allen could improve. Suarez is arguably not at his peak. We are a team in the process of forming the backbone of a team (Man C already have theirs') as per the names mentioned.

Anyway, I guess I am trying to say that we are a team in development where positive times are upon Our Club. Boy have we been waiting for this for a long time.

Congrats to the ever faithful who go to support the team and sing their hearts out week-in week-out who have have further enhanced the reputation of being the best fans in the world.

Peace!

KPee

1.) Agreed, 2 years ago we were nowhere with an ageing squad.

Now we are the 2nd best team in the country with a squad, as young as the previous one was old, and playing creative attacking football.


2.) A City fan on a phone-in asked which Liverpool players would get in City's side. He would have had Suarez up top with Aguero but no-one else. When you think about it he's got a point - and I'm sure this would be the view of most neutrals. Shows how well we have done to get within 2 pts of them. Personally I think Hendo & Sterling could improve their best XI BTW.


3.) Demichelis wouldn't start for Liverpool, so one of our centrald efender would replace him.

I think sterling would be in ahead of nasri and navas. personally int erms of this season alone, I think flanno for large parts has been better than kolorov and clichy

Best thing to do is watch some John Bames videos. The man could put quality crosses In, had great vision, could take on a player or 2, score goals, including free kicks. Most of it he could have done in his sleep when at his peak.

Good point WBD! Ed001, I would love to know ;-)

Also, the podcasts were a great intimate insight into happenings which you could not find in any tabloid.
In reference to P3 I recall you said that Milner in his central position lacks awareness. Funny, that during the Arsenal game he got the ball taken from him a few times for this point alone. Premature I know and Milner should be given every opportunity, but this could be a decision BR needs to make. I'm not sure how he would feel personally about reoperating his trade on the flanks. Benny Baller, is that South Western accent?

Cheers.

KPee

{Ed001's Note - I am never going to tell anyone as he specifically said it was not to be shared. It was a lot of private stuff we talked about. Most of it was more the stuff for the tabloids anyway, not really for here.

I think Milner would be better at least drifting out there when we have the ball, he is far too good a crosser of the ball to waste that.}

I agree LFC linc and I am 100%confident the Club hierarchy will do what's best for LFC. Its a 'rock and hard place' situation. We know He wanted to go before all of this as his reps were scouting the Spanish elite. Now its a fine balancing act between maintaining club sponsorship, disciplining Him, whilst ensuring the max value is maintained of the player. He has to go - no question. I am sure LFC would do business with Barca if Sanchez was open to coming to us. This seems only clear option. If not then we would need to keep him for another year to increase his value again. Not a pleasant or easy situation for BR and I feel sorry for Him, the team mates and of course our fans and great club. As Ed001 has said - I agree he is selfish and in it for himself. Was this situation orchestrated by Him to manoeuvre a move? Who knows - but you can't disregard the thought. Can't believe it is Pre Season and our club is being dragged through the dirt on what should be holiday time.

Heads up Red's!
