Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ben Woodburn, and Herbie Kane have all been nominated for the 2018 European Golden Boy award.

Bodes well for the chances of the latter two making the grade, they're in among the likes of Trent, De Ligt, Aouar, Foden and Cutrone - stellar company indeed. I didn't realize Herbie Kane was so highly rated.

Mbappe will win it again imo and by a landslide.


2.) 02 Jul 2018 09:19:48
Probably (and deservedly), but that doesn't mean getting nominated isn't a big personal achievement for the lads.


3.) 02 Jul 2018 13:13:33
Trent might be in with a sneaky shout. He did play in the champions league final had had a solid season for a young kid in a tough position.

Mbappe will most likely win it again.


4.) 03 Jul 2018 03:58:51
Trent should make top 3, maybe 2nd.

Ed001, now that pre-season is out of the way and the players have been reassessed, would it be possible to please get an update from you on which of the youngsters at the club are most highly thought of and which of the youngsters at the club are thought to have the best chance of progressing into the first team?

Lemuel

{Ed001's Note - I will have to ask for you mate, I haven't caught up on that yet.}

Thanks Ed.

I can't find the post with the review of the day article so will just do a separate post but with the allegations of bullying, Neymar has just gone down even further in my estimations. He is a poster boy for everything that is wrong with the game today: he is selfish, a diver, self-centered, arrogant, play acts and is now allegedly a bully. It's a shame someone like that has been blessed with so much talent.

Lemuel

1.) 11 Jul 2018 16:54:29
I don't rate him at all, wouldn't be in my top 20 players.

He has the flair to be the next Ronaldinho but it doesn't look like he even enjoys playing, he moans and he's selfish and actually pretty wasteful.

I'd put him on the same level as Zaha or Bolasie maybe.


2.) 11 Jul 2018 16:58:36
Zaha or Bolasie 😂😂😂😂

Surely a fish, but I’ll bite! 🙂.


3.) 11 Jul 2018 17:01:29
I could be wrong, but I am sure I once read an interview he did where he said he see’s football as just a job. Maybe that’d explain it?

I agree though. Can’t stand the guy. Waste of a talent.


4.) 11 Jul 2018 17:08:11
Neymar is a wonderfully gifted footballer but as we all know his attitude stinks. In my experience leopards don't change their spots so expect him at Real Madrid soon getting paid silly amounts to play some exceptional football and embarrassing theatrics!


5.) 11 Jul 2018 17:08:12
Of course he's a bully. I'm surprised that surprises anyone. He tries to bully the refs for god sake. I wouldn't be surprised to hear he hits a ref oneday.

He is a wonderful footballer though, he is one of the best in the world. Unfortunately he's been told that all his life and has become a disgusting little monster.


6.) 11 Jul 2018 17:24:01
Odious little cretin he is.
I would love to be a 7 ft tall nutjob defender playing against him, I would tackle him straight into row Z.


7.) 11 Jul 2018 17:52:02
Neymar is no longer relevant to me as a footballer. I've moved on.


8.) 11 Jul 2018 18:50:00
Lol, well said brover.


9.) 11 Jul 2018 20:24:27
I would of loved it if he attempted an overhead kick and spooned it, the ball then hit that camera that is controlled by wires above the stadium, broke and fell and then landed on top of him. Give him a proper injury to cry about.

It's a shame Rodgers got rid of Aspas before Klopp came in, he could've proven to be a very valuable squad player for us. Versatile and proven himself to be a good goalscorer over in Spain.

Lemuel

1.) 26 Jun 2018 05:34:27
He had his opportunity and didn't take it. there's plenty of good players who couldn't perform in the Premier League - Di Maria, Falcao, Veron, Morientes, etc.

{Ed001's Note - what opportunity? He never got a chance, that was the problem. Rodgers did nothing to help the lad, who was struggling to settle in England due to the culture change from where he was from in Spain. To make matters worse, he was up against Suarez and Sturridge on fire for a place in the team, so he spent the season mainly picking splinters out of his backside. He did not get a worthwhile opportunity and the club as a whole did not do enough to help the lad settle into life in a new country. They should be using him as an example of how not to treat new signings.}


2.) 26 Jun 2018 08:30:08
You know what Ed001, Aspas would have thrived under Klopp, he’s definitely the sort of forward that Klopp likes.

{Ed001's Note - very much so, he is well suited to Klopp's style.}


3.) 26 Jun 2018 09:23:46
If I remember correctly, in the season we brought Aspas in, he was directly responsible for 50% of his teams goals or assists. Was massively under rated by Liverpool supporters when he was here, even though he was up against the on fire SAS duo. Was a good player then, even better now.


4.) 26 Jun 2018 09:57:00
Yeah and he also made that impeccable cross.

That was enough asscrack for me.

{Ed001's Note - and that says far more about you as a supporter than anything else. Pathetic. One mistake and dicks like you turn on players. I really have no time for the likes of you.}


5.) 26 Jun 2018 10:16:19
I felt sorry for him while he was here and am glad he put it behind him so well once he returned to Spain and flourished.

Fair play to the man that showed strong character.


6.) 26 Jun 2018 10:43:31
A bit harsh there kloopsboss, considering how we treated the lad a single mistake is no reflection on his ability. Guy went through the whole season hearing Liverpool fans telling him how physically weak his for the league, consistently being compared to SAS and playing for a 1 dimensional manager who over relied on a certain way to win games. Come on.


7.) 26 Jun 2018 12:07:16
FranklyMrShankly, completely agree mate.

Kloppsboss, shame on you, why even comment? People like you do my bloody head in.

Good luck to Aspas, I always thought there was more to the lad and he's gone off and proved it. Respect.


8.) 26 Jun 2018 16:48:51
The game against Chelsea was lost by that point already through a combination of Gerrard slipping and Rodgers Hubris. The Aspas corner made little difference in the wider picture.


9.) 27 Jun 2018 20:55:05
Asspas was utter garbage and far to weak for this league.

That cross was the nail in the coffin but he had showed absolutely nothing.

He's not even good enough for Everton over here

As for one dimensional. Klopp pretty one dimensional. Gerrard cost us the league not Rodgers. He did every with the squad he had. Like klopp last year and they both failed. Zero trophies in what 7 years?


 

 

07 Jun 2018 23:50:58
Shaqiri created 84 chances last season, Salah created 59 in the league for comparison. He also scored 8 and assist 7. Those saying he has no talent and is a pub level player (paraphrasing) are going overboard massively. He has talent and quality about him but his problem s attitude and ego. If Klopp thinks he can sort him out then we'd have a good player as back up who offers us something no other players on our bench do. For 12m is seems good business to me, if it goes wrong, sell him on in January for a profit. Similar things were said about Mane re attitude with people similarly going overboard with their criticism of him but he sorted himself out and we have a top player on our hands. Shaqiri isn't as good as Mane obviously but I think he'd be a very good back up if Klopp can sort him out. We must make it clear to him before he signs what his role will be though. I also hope we sign Simon Moses, our cover on the winger is non-existent and we need to have the option of resting both Salah and Mane without becoming toothless, signing him would also help us in the earlier stages of the cups.

Lemuel

1.) 08 Jun 2018 00:35:59
For me Shaqiri’s talent has never been in doubt, what worries me is his attitude and work rate. If he knuckles down and works hard then £12 million for him is a bargain.


2.) 08 Jun 2018 01:06:50
Charlie Adam had great stats too.


3.) 08 Jun 2018 02:24:34
Adam and Shaqiri are very different players.

Shaqiri is a gamble anyway we look at it though.


4.) 08 Jun 2018 02:39:29
Downing scored 7 goals and registered 7 assists in the league in his final season at Villa. Didn't score a single league goal for us in his first season.


5.) 08 Jun 2018 03:32:00
Anyone who has properly watched Shaqiri play more than just a couple times will see the lads got a lot of quality and shouldn’t have been at a club like stoke. His attitude is what made his career stall and why the majority of people doubt this transfer. I think he’s a more established player than our other options (Moses Simon specifically) but I do have my reservations on how he’d handle being a squad player rather than in the first 11. One other thing that bothers me is that he’s left footed and plays mainly on the RW which is where Salah plays, I think Salah is the more consistent out of mane and him so if anyone was ever to get ‘dropped’ wouldn’t it be mane? And we all knows left footed players that cut in don’t do well on the left side. So in other words he offers less flexibility that a signing like Moses Simon would.


6.) 08 Jun 2018 04:48:57
I think Shaqiri, even for all his issues, is good on two counts:
1. We are lacking a great set piece taker in our first eleven, and Shaqiri can really produce the goods
2. When Salah starts playing centrally at the end of games, we don’t have a lot of options on the right wing / with left footers.


7.) 08 Jun 2018 05:32:53
Fekir is a set piece taker.


8.) 08 Jun 2018 06:27:09
Fekir is also left footed.


 

 

05 Jun 2018 00:38:10
Given that Macca mentioned Tarkowski in the list, I'd hope that's a sign we've looked at CBs as well. Lovren while he's done well since Van Dijk joined is never too far away from another error and I don't think he'll ever truly be able to iron these errors out of his game given that he's already 28. I doubt Tarkowski or Lascelles are the answer, so hopefully we aware of the likes of De Ligt and Upamecano. Upamecano would be my choice personally, I think he'll compliment Van Dijk better.

Lemuel

1.) 05 Jun 2018 05:16:08
Lovren has looked much more solid since VVD cape in. I agree that he may still have a mistake in him but considering we got to a CL final with him I think he deserves another season. With Fabinho coming in I think Gomez will play more games from central next year, and one of either Matip or Klavan will move on.


2.) 05 Jun 2018 06:33:59
Like many I have been on Lovren's back for much of his spell at 'Pool, but I honestly look at how he plays these days with a more stronger backline and see how much he has improved and how much he gives every time he plays for us. You're almost only as good as your partner! I would keep Lovren and Virgil as first choice center back pairing for next season, but I can't stress enough how bad of a defender Joel Matip is, and how much I would like him to be moved on. If that was the case then I definitely feel as if we should look at bringing in another center half who could push to become that 3rd choice. Not forgetting Joe Gomez, I just don't think he is ready to be played there yet, but is promising for the future.


3.) 05 Jun 2018 06:56:55
Agree with SkySaleh. Lovren has looked really good paired up with van Dijk. He doesn't seem all that overly ambitious now, gets help with positioning.
Slightly worried that he regularly is the one just a little deeper than the other defenders cancelling offsides. That can be dealt with though. Hope the coaches will work with him on that issue after the wcs.


4.) 05 Jun 2018 07:16:11
Lovren has improved next to VVD but consider this, how good could our defence be if we had a good CB playing next to him?


5.) 05 Jun 2018 07:26:19
If VVD gets serious injury and is out for say three months then we’re back to square one. Yes he’s improved but for me he’s a third choice can’t half.


6.) 05 Jun 2018 07:44:18
No defender makes zero errors, just doesn't happen. Lovren has done very little wrong since being paired with VVD, cut the lad some slack and show him some support.


7.) 05 Jun 2018 08:13:52
Lovren has been reliable. The issue I've is that he hardly played consecutive games maybe because of fitness or injuries. If he doesn't have that next season, then he should continue with VVD.
Outside signing someone in the class of Alderweireld, I don't see the need to change the CB pairing.


8.) 05 Jun 2018 08:40:21
Klopp said very recently that he sees Lovren as world class.
So all those rubbing their hands at an exotically named shiny new expensive centre back to replace Lovren may be in for a major disappointment.


9.) 05 Jun 2018 08:50:21
There are some players Klopp will never drop even for his money! Lovren and Wijnaldum are two of those! I expect him to get another contract soon! We need to suck this bitter truth and move on!
How has he improved? Lol we play so dominating football that there is hardly any work for our defenders and keepers. And when they are called up on they are Pants!

Is it the same Lovren that got beaten all ends by Lukaku? He is a bang average player who unfortunately Klopp likes. Similar to Moreno and Karius!
Move on!

{Ed001's Note - bang average player who dominated Lukaku in the previous game. Bang average player that kept Ronaldo quiet in the final. You really are just clueless at times Harry. Only thing you ever want to do is slag off LFC players. It is boring. Give it a rest.}


10.) 05 Jun 2018 09:21:26
Slag off? Like whom? Lovren was beaten by Ronaldo for that disallowed goal! I am sorry I don’t rate Lovren one bit like you don't rate VVD. There is lot more the story than just keeping Ronaldo quiet. Ronaldo on the whole had a very poor game thanks to the way we kept their flanks very quiet and their passing! Boring is changing the tunes suddenly after one game! I never rated Lovren tbh not even from the day we signed him!
Sorry but disagree with you here.

{Ed001's Note - I really give up, what the hell has Van Dijk got to do with anything and when have I said he is not got ability? Unlike your moronic abuse, I actually explain why I have problems with aspects of a players style, rather than just slag them off. I am done discussing football with you, it is pointless as you offer nothing of value.}


11.) 05 Jun 2018 10:22:19
Has lovern actually made a mistake since the spurs game? I think the lad has got his head down and worked hard on improving his game.


12.) 05 Jun 2018 10:26:08
Lovren was great in the second half of the season. I can't bring myself to judge him on his first half as he had Mignolet behind him, Can in front of him, and Matip and Moreno next to him. Couple that with his mental state clearly not being right and the fact he was playing with pain killers and only training roughly 2 days a week, and I just don't think it is fair to chastise him for that time.

I like Lovren. He is a good footballer, and if everyone in our team mirrored his strength of character and work rate, we'd be a much better team.


13.) 05 Jun 2018 10:48:45
Very true MK, well said mate.


14.) 05 Jun 2018 11:28:41
It’s one of the team’s biggest weaknesses.
If we want to compete, we have to improve 👍.


15.) 05 Jun 2018 12:13:34
Absolutely Ron. We drew 11 games last season and Lovren lolayed a huge part in most of it! It’s been like 5 years and he is still error prone! I don’t find any reasons to defend him as a player.


16.) 05 Jun 2018 17:50:05
You don't half talk some garbage lad. Lovren plays a far better game than you talk one, all you ever seem to do is slag players on here.
Are you actually a supporter or what?

Can also play at right back, passionate, has chemistry with Lovren, has plenty of experience and unlike Matip, actually seems to know how to defend. As a back up option, I'm all for it. Vida in, Matip out would be good business.

Would be an interesting one. At present the lad would struggle to finish his dinner but he has potential and as a back up winger I wouldn't be opposed to him signing, one of Klopp's specialties is polishing rough diamonds. The thing is though, given the figure Watford would likely want, wouldn't we be better off buying someone who is closer to being the finished article?

Highly rated and formerly one of the best prospects at Ajax's academy, I read, they are supposed to very disappointed to have lost him. We're said to have beat a host of top European clubs to his signature.

Shaqiri is a winger, not to mention our only good cover out wide, expecting him to cover cm (a position he's never played before, is just silly.

Good shout Shane but Milner played so well last game that it would be tough to drop him and he has the energy to help out Trent too. I'd go Milner Fabinho Keita personally but would understand if Klopp opted for Henderson over Milner.

Great read Ed, really enjoyed that. We had a great window but could've done with a couple more signings. still, a Keita, Fabinho, Henderson midfield will be really defensively solid, as much as I'd have liked Fekir and the promising Joe Gomez will now get a few more opportunities at centre back.

Lemuel
