Hi eds
Is Solankes move to CP not going ahead now?

{Ed001's Note - for now yes.}


1.) 02 Jan 2019 20:23:48
Apparently, there are concerns over his fitness.
My opinion is that it may be difficult for him to go on loan because teams would need him to start playing immediately.
A permanent deal however may be different, because he may be afforded more time.
But that's just my opinion.

{Ed002's Note - That is not the issue - someone making unreasonable demands is.}


2.) 02 Jan 2019 20:54:07
Player looking for Guarantees no doubt then.

{Ed002's Note - No, that is not the issue.}


3.) 02 Jan 2019 22:09:32
Probably us demanding an excessive loan fee or insisting Palace cover all his wages.


4.) 02 Jan 2019 22:11:55
Am dumping it’s the club’s demands of playing time and feed.


5.) 02 Jan 2019 22:46:32
*assuming.


6.) 03 Jan 2019 01:52:31
Maybe we are trying to get some sort of agreement about Bissaka.


7.) 03 Jan 2019 05:55:10
Havent seen it asked yet, so here goes. ed2 who is making the unreasonable demands and what are they?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant. He will go elsewhere.}


8.) 03 Jan 2019 15:19:52
Doesn't Solanke have a very demanding father that was also part of the problem @ Chelsea?


9.) 04 Jan 2019 00:33:05
Is it not about CP signing too many loan players this season?


10.) 04 Jan 2019 00:38:46
Like where?


 

 

25 Apr 2018 06:55:46
Hi eds. do you know when Lallana it due back. After the injury to the ox we need him ASAP. ?

{Ed001's Note - he is not expected back this season, unless we make the final in which case he could possibly make it. Not sure we 'need' him, good player as he is, we have not missed him at all this season and look better without him. He does not fit the way we play any more.}


1.) 25 Apr 2018 07:06:41
Ok thanks eds
Maybe time for him to move on then.


2.) 25 Apr 2018 07:46:10
I think we are all panicking over Midfield options ed mate. what's your thoughts? We have 3 fit options only now. Anyone from U21 or U23 that might be drafted in?

{Ed001's Note - maybe time to give Trent a run in his natural position?}


3.) 25 Apr 2018 08:14:07
Be a good chance against stoke at the weekend maybe and play Gomez at rb.


4.) 25 Apr 2018 08:19:41
Good shout Ed to be fair. Gomez back to RB. Hendo probably needs a rest? Can you think of any youngsters he might call on or should the 3 senior fit CMs be able to play all remaining games in your opinion?

{Ed001's Note - there is plenty of rest after next week's game. So they should be enough. If not maybe we could give Williams a chance, at 22 he needs to get a game or two just to see if he is capable of raising his game. You only know for sure when they get a go. Sometimes a kid can stand out a mile but then shrink mentally and fail miserably in the adult game. Other kids look average in youth football but they get a lucky break and suddenly grow as players to look like they belong there. It really shouldn't be an issue to cope for 4 games with the three we have and then they get two weeks to rest before the final (hopefully).}


5.) 25 Apr 2018 08:28:14
Just made a post on another thread saying the same ed, I think it is time to push him up to the midfield, let's see how he handles it, I think he'll do really well plus there's no better time then now.


6.) 25 Apr 2018 08:40:46
Cheers ed. You make so much sense. I would have far less stress and grey hairs if I could talk to you everytime I get a little flustered or concerned in life lol. Have a good day mate.

{Ed001's Note - I would say that is the good thing about getting older that you get less flustered but me ma is blooming ancient and she still gets overly stressed about every little thing.}


7.) 25 Apr 2018 08:44:43
In terms of having enough in the tank it shouldn't be a problem Ed001. But we are also one errant kick from not having enough fit midfielders for the biggest game of the decade.

{Ed001's Note - then you give a youngster a chance and you never know you might unearth a future star. If we aren't going to give them a chance when injuries strike because of panicky fans we may as well scrap the academy altogether.}


8.) 25 Apr 2018 09:09:43
I’d like to see Hendo, Gini and Woodburn against Stoke and maybe Milner coming on last 30mins to rest Hendo for a bit.

We need TAA’s delivery from out wide against Stoke IMO.


9.) 25 Apr 2018 10:42:31
Fully agree ed001, but I'm dissapointed that we have to give them a chance now. I questioned at the time, and continue to question, why they are not as a rule present in every match day squad so they could have gotten some chances in a few of the 16 (yes that's right, 16) games this season where we have won by 3 or more goals? It does get annoying finding ourselves repeatedly unprepared for this.

{Ed001's Note - I expect the Prem will follow Serie A's lead and increase the number of subs available soon enough. Serie A did it because they wanted to help the Italian national side by giving youngsters more chances in the first team. Whether it would actually do that or not is arguable but it would certainly mean managers would have no excuse for not giving kids a chance. Though it would probably just see Guardiola demand another half billion to spend to fill the bench with expensive first team players....}


10.) 25 Apr 2018 13:07:47
Ed001 do you know has Jordan Williams been training with the 1st team? I know he played a bunch of games for Rochdale, but not since October and he hasn't been playing for the U23s. I'd imagine it's more likely Gini will play as the deep mid and one or two of Woodburn/ Jones/ Kane could get a start. I know they're younger but age doesn't seem to be a factor for Klopp if you're good enough.

{Ed001's Note - a lot of the young uns train with the first team and it swaps about, to get them used to being with the group.}


11.) 25 Apr 2018 20:54:55
Jordan Williams is currently on loan at Rochdale so I imagine he wouldn’t be an option unless recall was an option.

{Ed002's Note - Of course not.}


12.) 26 Apr 2018 09:06:41
No Gordo, it was only a loan until January, but he suffered a knee injury at the end of October and hasn't kicked a football since.


13.) 26 Apr 2018 12:16:15
SGRED, I’d argue that Trent’s positioning would still find him out wide when playing RCM, just look at the positions Milner and the Ox take up throughout a game. Means he still gets to put in killer deliveries but also experience a game in midfield at the highest level. Also means if we play Gomez at RB that we can shift to a 3-4-3 when needed without having to bring an extra centre back on like we have been lately.
Cheers (3rd attempt at this post)


14.) 26 Apr 2018 12:17:51
Gordo - I believe his loan finished back in Jan. I just checked the Rochdale website and there is no mention of him (although they do have a Jordan Williams out on loan to Lincoln which threw me for a tick) . But he isn't injured AFAIK so Im guessing he needs to work harder to convince Critchley because he isn't getting into the U23 atm.


 

 

10 Nov 2017 11:03:01
Is there a Liverpool sharkpod yet eds👍🏻.

{Ed002's Note - Right now my plan is to do them all next Thursday. I am either travelling or busy working until then.}


1.) 10 Nov 2017 12:29:45
Ok mate thanks.


2.) 10 Nov 2017 23:14:10
Looking forward to this, roll on next week, any chance when you get a spare moment next week Ed002 you can start the intergalactic legends team? Thanks mate.

{Ed002's Note - It may need to be the week after.}


3.) 11 Nov 2017 16:59:13
Silly question. How do you gain access to the old sharkpods? I've tried the search engine but for me it just brings up comments that has the word sharkpod in there.

{Ed033's Note - old sharkpods


 

 

02 Nov 2017 08:26:40
Any chance of a sharkpod eds👍🏻.

{Ed002's Note - I will try to get to it in the coming days.}


1.) 02 Nov 2017 13:44:33
Thanks ed002 - you're awesome 👏😍.


 

 

20 Sep 2017 21:16:20
Hi eds
I know we signed matip on a free way before the transfer window opened. Is there anyone We could sign in the coming weeks leading up to Jan that would help our defence in anyway. It would be nice to know that we had someone lined up ready.
As always thanks.

{Ed001's Note - not that I know of.}


1.) 21 Sep 2017 02:51:23
We signed Matip early because his contract was expiring, not many players contracts expire in January.


2.) 21 Sep 2017 03:42:34
I did a search and Joe lescott is available ;)
Two interesting players in Jan Kirchoff and flamini are available too.


3.) 21 Sep 2017 08:11:40
Jan Kirchoff? The massive German who kept Sunderland up single handedly 2 years ago?

That can't be right. If it is he must be injured. He is a decent centre back/ holding midfielder from what I've seen. Sunderland were soft, lacked leadership, lacking in steel and fight etc and he went in there and was a massive part of their turn around.

I didn't see enough of him to know if he is good enough for Liverpool, but he is a better defender than Lovren and Klavan that is for sure!

{Ed001's Note - he is awful MKS, he is slow, cumbersome and got the credit for no reason I could see. He was always about 6 yards behind the play, but he put in a couple of good passes and suddenly he was the reincarnation of Beckenbauer in the media. One man kept Sunderland up that season and it was not Kirchhoff, it was Allardyce. Kirchhoff is injured, he did his cruciate, but he is simply not as good as people believe. He makes Matip look lively when chasing back.}


4.) 21 Sep 2017 11:50:56
How can you claim he kept them up single handedly then further state you didn't see enough to see how good he actually was?

I like your efforts MK, I just don't think the knowledge is there.


5.) 21 Sep 2017 11:52:13
I'm not saying he'd suit us Ed. Every game i saw him in though he was arguably man of the match so that's all i can go off of. I agree he looks too slow for us and i only saw him 2 or 3 times so I'm certainly not going to suggest we sign him. He was a monster at set pieces though and seemed to get the best out of the useless players he had around him. As a pure defender though he looked decent. Nothing special, just decent. If he signed for us he'd just be another stop gap so I'd rather we wait anyway.

I was just surprised he didn't have a club. He'd suit a team like West Brom, Palace, Huddersfield etc. If he has a cruciate injury though, that explains it.


6.) 21 Sep 2017 13:58:33
So the day we feared has come injuries too centre backs an they were already rubbish, now we have no cover total crime too neglect the transfer window for defensive cover.


7.) 21 Sep 2017 15:23:13
Lol ed (≧▽≦)


8.) 21 Sep 2017 16:47:03
Smplfc, i can only judge what i saw. I watched Sunderland with and without him that season and they were a completely different side. Maybe I've confused the impact of Kirchoff, with the impact of Allardyce. But those two coming in definitely coincided with Sunderland becoming much harder to beat and a much more solid looking unit. Then when they didn't have him last season they were back to being an flaccid bunch of strangers. Again, could've been Allardyce being gone too though.

Unfair to suggest I've not got any knowledge though when all I've done is call a player I've watched a few times decent. Hardly gone over board with the praise have i 😂 although i have since noticed i missed an almost out of my original post. It should've read "almost single handedly" so perhaps that is why people are jumping down my throat for daring to suggest Kirchoff is a mid table Premier League player 🙄 Khazri, Kirchoff and Kone changed their season i thought. I mean you can disagree but when they signed Sunderland looked doomed to go down, but their fortunes were completely changed. You are all so quick to claim that you can't make a silk purse from a sows ear when i defend our players, so you can't then in the same breath say that Sunderland staying up was 100% down to Allardyce. He clearly added players who could make the difference, but that is my point. Kirchoff was part of the change that made that difference.

Anyway, feel like we're splittng hairs over terminology, my choice of cliché phrase (which has seemingly been taken way too literally), and people are perhaps jumping to the conclusion that i think he'd be a good signing for us. I'd still be surprised if Kirchoff struggles to find a mid table top flight club once he's fit. Be that in England or back in Germany the bloke is clearly a decent player. From a Liverpool perspective i appreciate he's not good enough, but for a team dwelling at the bottom struggling to keep out goals he would be seen as a big step up in defensive quality. Horses for courses mate, you can't view everything from Liverpool's world or else we are saying that a good 95% of pro footballers are terrible! It's all relative 😉.


9.) 21 Sep 2017 17:58:03
You have also taken my point out of context mate.

My point isn't your end assessment on the player, it's the fact that you made the asssessment and then when Ed disagreed you stated that you had only actually watched him "2 or 3 times". Not once did I say I don't rate the player or it was all down to big Sam, nor am I pushing something down your throats for having an opinion.

I actually agree with your initial statement. I disagree with eds views and although Sam definitely signed players to pay to his strength, he was one that looked like he had a bit of class about him.

My point is and that's all it is in my opinion, lack of experience leads you to make large opinions without backing them up properly or forming them to either agree with Ed or to disagree with the majority.

Like I said mate it wasn't a dig, all a bit of light hearted banter, but I actually rate Kirchoff!


10.) 21 Sep 2017 20:44:27
We started to go downhill when Djimi Traore and Kewell left.


11.) 22 Sep 2017 00:28:14
omalley is correct, everything is clear for me now.


12.) 22 Sep 2017 10:30:21
Actually that Hoffenheim CB is pretty fast, he caught up with Mane when matip started 1st.


13.) 22 Sep 2017 12:56:48
Relaxlabrudder,
Are you referring to their captain who needlessly gave the ball to Salah near the half way line and almost gave us a throw away goal?
I can appreciate anyone making a mistake but a glaring one like that is not really needed in a defence like ours at the moment thanks lol!


14.) 22 Sep 2017 21:30:00
Klopp must have forseen the scenario loosing Matip/ Lovren. I would guess he just have a lot of FAITH in Gomez. Maybe WE should support this?
I really really like Gomez. He's got pace, he's calm, he has ability on the ball. He may lack a bit of rutine, and some belief in himself. Maybe both Klopp and me would have chosen to ease the "kid" in over the season, but HEY, he might grab the PL by the balls, in september!

Morning eds1
After watching salah’s goal for the 20th time this morning because it’s so good (that back heel from bobby wow! ) got me thiing it all started from a throw in. So do you think we have improved under our throw in coach at all. I know joe was throwing a long ball into the box whilst playing for England and we scored from it and afterwards they put it all down to this coaching.

{Ed001's Note - the movement is much better, so yes.}


1.) 10 Feb 2019 09:14:59
Well that’s good to know.
just to add on the salah goal the ball through from keita to bobby was outstanding 👌🏻.


2.) 10 Feb 2019 09:26:37
Think Bobby's back heel was so outrageously good, people forgot how great Keitas pass was.
Thought he was terrific yesterday.


3.) 10 Feb 2019 11:25:56
someone summed up for me about throw-ins recently thought it's quite cool:

Long throw - this is intended to cause havoc, esp in the penalty box aka Rory Delap style. in the team, Gomez is capable of that.

Fast throw - this is to catch defences off guard when the ball is out of play. it requires players to be very switched on when the ball goes out of play, and of course, for the thrower to get to the ball as quickly as possible while the others make the right movement. it utilizes the rule that you can't be offside from a throw-in.

Clever throw - this is setting up the throw as though its a freekick/ corner with specific player positioning and movement that will result in creating space/ chance.

And the acronyms turn out to be LFC!

Of course this is a very simplified version. those more learned in this area went on to share how its not just ball retention and getting the play going, its part of a pattern of play, an intentional move for specific purposes, etc.

I for one learned a lot and am amazed that a seemingly tiny facet of the game can have such significant effects.


4.) 10 Feb 2019 12:11:29
keitas pass to firmino reminded me of coutinhos pass to sturridge v arsenal, the 4 1 game. fantastic pass.


5.) 10 Feb 2019 12:52:07
Keita did well but he’s still a work in progress in Liverpool’s midfield.
Bournemouth must have one of the slowest defences in the league and they’re almost tailor-made for our front three.
Depending on injuries, I have a feeling Klopp will go for the two deeper midfielders at Utd which would probably mean Fabinho and Henderson as ideal first choices.
You’d think Keita would then be on the bench for that one, which seems about right I think.
Perhaps he could play a fuller role against Munich though, he should certainly be familiar with them.

{Ed001's Note - only Cook lacks pace in the Cherries backline, the rest are very quick. Not sure how that makes them one of the slowest defences in the league. Smith is particularly quick.}


6.) 10 Feb 2019 14:05:55
It must be Cook that leaves a lasting impression then Ed001, or our lads seem to target him and his defensive channel very well as he got blown away down at their place too.

{Ed001's Note - it is a lack of organisation meaning they are all over the place and constantly out of position, so Cook ends up being left on his own with no cover. Ake is dog turd defensively.}

Was there a game review for the Leicester game or have I missed it?

Good read that eds.
I knew Rodgers was trying to stop a leak at the time but I’ve never realised it was him the bloody plonker!
You wouldn’t want my job eds am the one at the top of those MEWP and cherry pickers over 100 feet moving about in the wind 😂.

{Ed001's Note - MEWP? I don't know what that is sorry!

The club was completely unprofessional at that time. It was a mess and not just Rodgers was at fault.}

28 Jan 2019 18:39:35
I can’t remembe if we ever had this debate before but what everyone’s thoughts if the FA cup had winners had a champions league place to get all the clubs playing the best teams all the way through the competition and then take 4th place CL slot away. Thought?

{Ed025's Note - great idea logthing, except that we will be fighting your lot for 4th next season and one of us will lose out mate.. :)


1.) 28 Jan 2019 18:46:43
The FA Cup is a great and historic competition and needs to be respected more by the FA. I would be fully behind this idea. Its the ‘Champions’ League after all, why should you be in it for coming 4th yet not be in it for winning a legitimately prestigious competition?

{Ed025's Note - well you have been taking advantage of that for donkeys years AW..


2.) 28 Jan 2019 18:49:29
Says it all really, trying to come up with ideas to make the FA Cup more glamorous by adding something more desirable than the actual Silverwere at the end of it.

{Ed025's Note - its lost its appeal LFC8 and something does need to be done to bring it back to life, i think longthing has a great solution to be honest..


3.) 28 Jan 2019 18:56:05
Fighting us for 4th ed eh😜😝🤣 I’m sure you said something similar this season mate. Fair play mate you certainly are a likeable Blue nose 👃, even if you can’t resist every opertinity to stick you ore in lol. Fair play mate you’ve got some massive gonads given your standings in the table.

{Ed025's Note - you have to believe virgil otherwise whats the point?, law of averages says we will come good one day mate...and its always next season.. :)


4.) 28 Jan 2019 18:56:27
Careful with your bold predictions ed25. :p

I like the idea. On a separate note do people stop to think what the CL would look like if it only included the "champions". Would ya even watch it? I wouldn't and it'd become an elite (boring) comp.

{Ed025's Note - i looked in my crystal ball faith and seen a team in royal blue lifting a trophy...mind you it could have been millwall winning the supporters of the year cup.. :)


5.) 28 Jan 2019 19:01:14
Maybe they should sell the competition and rebrand it? The FA have done a great job of making people hate them. So a cup bearing their name is unlikely to be respected. I'd rather win the Carabao Cup and I don't even know what Carabao is 🤷‍♂️.


6.) 28 Jan 2019 19:23:39
FA cup is a fossil and sadly it’s lost its appeal and I don’t think the foreign coaches are appealed by it! It needs a massive face lift and hopefully it gets back it’s magic! The only thing it’s good for now is top clubs v lower league clubs fans kickin the Jaysus out of each other!


7.) 28 Jan 2019 19:42:19
Give it a £100m prize for winning it and teams will take it seriously.


8.) 28 Jan 2019 20:24:04
It would be a great thing to add more appeal to winning the FA Cup, I know financially everyone wants top 4 for the CL but surely as a player when you retire it would be nice to finish with some medals.
The other thing with offering a CL spot for the FA Cup, what would happen if a Championship club won the FA Cup?
Used to love the FA Cup. Remember watching the 92 FA Cup final all the pre match build up watching the buses arrive interviews with all the players. Now it just doesn’t feel the same and it’s such a shame.


9.) 28 Jan 2019 20:54:57
Sadly, the FA Cup no longer has the prestige it once had. There appear to be many reasons for this - the all-consuming importance of winning the Premier League or finishing in the ECL qualifying places for the Top 6 teams; staying in the Premier League for the rest; the increase in foreign coaches; the FA allowing Wembley to become an over-used club ground, removing the novelty and mystique of a cup final appearance; etc, etc. I don’t think offering an ECL qualifying place to the FA Cup winners will do much to change attitudes - after all, 27 of the last 30 winners of the FA Cup were from the recognised Top 6 teams. These teams have big enough first team squads to rest a few stars and still be strong enough to beat most opponents. I am afraid we might have to accept that the FA Cup is now a second rate competition which, like the Premier League, will usually be won by one of the Top 6 teams with the occasional winning outsider such as Wigan in 2014.


10.) 28 Jan 2019 21:15:46
The FA Cup is not the only Cup that has lost its glamour and following. Cups throughout the continent have lost it too. I guess most people have forgotten that we used to have a Cup Winners Cup in Europe that all national winners played in, along the same lines as the current CL and EL. Perhaps that's one of the reasons why Cups throughout the continent are simply not followed as much? Or maybe it's the other way around and that European competition (as well as the local Cup competitions) were/ are simply seen as not producing good enough quality?


11.) 28 Jan 2019 21:29:52
ed0025 so a big improvement next season from your lot. looks like Big Sam's coming back, because am sure your worse off this season with a lot more money spent.
LMFAO YNWA.

{Ed025's Note - we are just a bit better actually grino in terms of points and GD, but every day is a new dawn mate and i live in hope that we will once again rule the roost in this country.....mind you im also hoping for a valentine card from carol kirkwood..


12.) 28 Jan 2019 21:47:30
DDG last season before the FA Cup final, said he would rather challenge for the PL and CL than win the FA Cup. Willian (b4 the same final game vs Utd) said he'd rather be in the top 4 than win the FA Cup. Here is your proof that the FA Cup ain't worth a darn thing anymore to the top 6 teams. Peace!


13.) 28 Jan 2019 22:10:48
Eds 025 I've had my card from the goddess Carol already😍.

{Ed025's Note - in your dreams.. :)


14.) 28 Jan 2019 22:13:26
I’ve wrestles with this idea, but if you give it a champions league place the consequence would be the rich stockpile MORE players so they can play in more competitions resulting in even less variety and more of the same old.

Summary : I don’t know. Benefits and risks about equal.


15.) 28 Jan 2019 22:28:39
The FA need to put more money into it, as that is pretty much all it comes down to.
Premier League TV money is astronomical, Champions League revenue is massive. The FA Cup is pennies in comparison, same too with the League Cup, but I see that as a competition which shouldn't exist, no other top European league have 2 domestic trophies to play for in a cup format.

Might be a bit out there, but I wouldn't be totally against the idea of 4th place and the FA Cup winners having a "Play off" of sorts for a spot in the Champions league. A better version of the Community shield in a way. and more competitive obviously.

What do we think? May be pants and may not work. just want other's thoughts!

Honestly baffled as to why i have so many disagrees when everyone seems to be agreeing that the financial benefits offered by a champions league spot are more important? If you give the fourth spot place to the FA Cup winner then that gives incenctive to win it on a financial and competitive level. You give that incentive to win the FA Cup and it becomes more important again, every club in the country eyeing up that champions league money, not just the top 6. How exciting it would be!

How about 4th placed and Fa cup winner playoff for last Cl slot? You think it feasible Ed?

{Ed025's Note - im not sure sg i think that may be complicating things even more mate..

I've just had a great idea, it's called the Cup Winners Cup and all the European teams who win the FA Cuo or equivalent will be allowed to enter. oh, hang on a minute.

{Ed025's Note - good stuff johnny..

Your team's only European success that wasn't it Ed025? Just before the dark days of the ban for English clubs?

{Ed025's Note - it was johnny and a wonderful night in rotterdam it was too, we had an excellent side at that time mate and who knows how far we could have gone if it was not for that ban...i seem to have been saying what only ever since..

The Europa League really does look like the poorer cousin of the Champions League. Maybe take the Cup winners and stick them into the Europa League is an option? Modalities would have to be worked out (like reducing one qualifying team from the leagues and adding a cup winner) . Could spice up the competition a bit. Cup winner from Albania against the EPL team that finished 2nd, for the final, anyone?


22.) 29 Jan 2019 12:47:22
Don't the cup winners go into the EL anyway or am I going mad?

It simply comes down to money.

There is lots of dough in the Premier league and champions league but not so much for the FA Cup.

Who in Peru wants to watch Rochdale take on Wigan athletic? I don't see a way back for the FA Cup. Not unless hugely drastic measures are taken with club football.

Leicester player a fully changed 11 vs Newport in the FA Cup this season. Even they couldn't be arsed about the "magic" of the FA Cup. Nuff said.

Apart from the last few weeks I’ve not seen him play much. How good is he eds. he must be good if BM want to sign him. ?

{Ed001's Note - a good old-fashioned winger, who can get the ball out on the wing and put in an excellent cross with regularity.}

He sounds like an excellent Milner replacement when he leaves us!

{Ed001's Note - except for being unable to play full back he would be.}
