Hi ed2 are we interested in Seri from Nice? Thanks.

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - Jean-Michael Seri (CM) was looked at as a potential option to Nobby Keita in the summer. Barcelona came close to completing his transfer in the summer and that failure as made the player rather miffed and he wants to move on. He previously said that he was not interested in Arsenal but his agent says he would now consider the move as a way out of Nice - but he wants to play for Barcelona. He has also said that the player does not want to move to Rome (probably ending their previous interest) and the recent interest of PSG they need to discuss.

If Liverpool are looking to him again it is not clear to me - nor why they would want another Nobby K in the side. I am aware of Liverpool scouts attending a Nice game recently but it was simply to look at another player - and that is something they have not taken further so it is of no relevance. Barcelona do still have Seri as one of several alternatives to eventually becoming the Iniesta replacements - but he is not first pick. So they could be back. Arsenal may well also place a bid but right now we are looking to see the impact of a couple of new chaps they have taken on. PSG interest is reasonably new and they have spoken with his agent - but no more (this is as of a week ago).}


1.) 06 Dec 2017 17:07:22
Thanks for the reply.


2.) 06 Dec 2017 18:01:37
Who is the nice player they’d were watching?

{Ed002's Note - Malang Sarr who is a CB who is comfortable at LB.}


3.) 06 Dec 2017 18:19:56
Thanks for info Ed002. Haven't seen Seri play but do you or any of the other Eds think he may have skill set to be a more defensive midfielder? Or are his main strengths going forward?

{Ed002's Note - I really don’t know but if Klopp wants to change his system to play a DM then he really needs to look for a specialist.}


4.) 06 Dec 2017 18:23:30
Ed with coutino and can going could we be looking at seri aswell as keita.

{Ed002's Note - if Klopp decides he doesn’t want to replace Coutinho or use the likes of Grujic, then perhaps.}


5.) 06 Dec 2017 19:21:14
The scouts were there to watch a player by the name of Ballotelli. It's stated that he is the next big thing. Get him now while we can!

Baz.


6.) 06 Dec 2017 23:52:20
So this Malang Sarr isn’t someone we are potentially looking at?

{Ed002's Note - He was being scouted by Liverpool. I don't really get why this seems so complicated to you. Just ignore Sarr.}


7.) 07 Dec 2017 17:47:02
Thanks for the reply Ed002 I’ve seen Sarr play a few times and he look so like he has a bright future!

{Ed002's Note - You are right - well thought of. Perhaps a little raw right now.}


 

 

01 Sep 2017 15:08:36
Ed2 may i ask you about Sturridge please mate? At the start of the window did the club make him available then realized that there is no one out there to target as a replacement, don't get me wrong I am more than happy we kept Sturridge even better if he can stay fit for large parts this season.

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - No. if they had looked to another striker he would have been the one sold.}


1.) 02 Sep 2017 06:52:55
I saw Liam Neeson getting into a hackney outside Like Street Station last night, he was heard saying something about Coutinho and kidnapping Spaniards coming from overseas, then he said something about skills and how he would find them, so not to be Taken too lightly these apparent Barcelona rumours oh by the way virgin poster, well not actually virgin, I haven't posted for years, was going to post earlier but the Transfer Window got put through by the local youths.


 

 

27 Aug 2017 09:45:38
Hi eds any truth in the rumour that Migs as had an offer from Napoli?

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware. It is fair to say Napoli are looking for a goalkeeper as Pepe Reina is likely to depart and they have been regretting sending Nikita Contini on loan - although he is far from an ideal replacement. They have their eyes on taking a very high-end young goalkeeper next season but are aware an English side have held numerous discussions about taking him in the future and have a tentative financial agreement in place - all of this meaning they are looking for another goalkeeper again. They have a player in mind - it is not Mignolet and I very much doubt Liverpool would be looking to sell if they were interested as it would leave them short.}


1.) 27 Aug 2017 10:12:10
Migs just rested then ed? Seems strange.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea. As I say, I am not aware of him having an "offer" froM Napoli and I can't see Liverpool wanting to go looking for a goalkeeper this late in the day - Napoli are less than pleased about having to do so themselves.}


2.) 27 Aug 2017 10:09:10
Is this donnaroma, if so, do you mind asking which team have an agreement with him? City, Arsenal?

{Ed002's Note - No it is not Donnarumma.}


3.) 27 Aug 2017 10:30:00
I would not mind having Pepe Reina as our third GK at all.


4.) 27 Aug 2017 11:07:25
2 decent keepers is plenty. how often does a 3rd choice keeper make the bench, let alone actually play.

{Ed002's Note - You will find all Premier League clubs have three decent goalkeepes in their squad. Klopp has set his stall out with his goalkeepers (perhaps keeping quiet about the whole subject would have been advisable, but he didn't). If Mignolet were to be sold, and I know nothing at all of this "offer" from Napoli that is being suggested, Liverpool need another goalkeeper - whether you think all they need is two or not.}


5.) 27 Aug 2017 11:13:30
Could Liverpool u23 gk be the 3rd choice and play for the u23s?

{Ed002's Note - Sure, if Liverpool wish to weaken their side until Adam Bogdan is fit.}


6.) 27 Aug 2017 11:14:07
I would not mind having Pepe Reina as our first choice GK at all.


7.) 27 Aug 2017 11:21:19
Fair enough ed. if that's the case it would need to be an old bloke like Manninger that isn't going to be ahead of either Karius or Ward in the pecking order.

{Ed002's Note - Sure, Manchester City has Bravo, Spurs Vorm, Bournemouth Boruc, Southampton Taylor, Chelsea Eduado etc.. It is a system that works well for most clubs as they can share experience and help out the younger keepers at the club and at least one side always supports them in getting their coaching badges and have them work with the youth sides. I understand reading some of the replies that many of the Grunts don't realise or understand such things. For me the issue Liverpool has is with the third choice Ward. He should have been loaned back to Huddersfield (who wanted him) and he would be getting some fantastic experience at the highest level and Liverpool could have gone and got another Manninger. For me, they could have let Ward have his loan and recruited an out of contract home grown goalkeeper like Ross Turnbull and have been in great shape.}


8.) 27 Aug 2017 11:59:49
I have to say Ed002 myself and a few other fan's were just saying how ridiculous it was not to send Ward out on loan as you say to get some very valuable experience. We were saying as well that we can see that if/ when Ward got/ get's a chance that there's a very good keeper in there.

{Ed002's Note - I have no doubts about that. A very well respected coach called Gordon Marshall said that Ward has temperament and ability to make it at the highest level - and that is indeed praise. The events of January 2016 were indeed a set back and I really think it would have been wise to let him back on loan this summer - but no.}


9.) 27 Aug 2017 12:03:34
Hope he goes .2 keepers is enough. Next .

{Ed002's Note - You need to get Klopp out then - he is insisting on three.}


10.) 27 Aug 2017 12:18:05
Absolutely agree ed. Ward should have been getting game time at Huddersfield. Would have been excellent experience for him and we'd be getting back a great young keeper who would have improved no end. As it is what we have done is a complete cluster ****.


11.) 27 Aug 2017 12:29:21
And he was first choice. Seems almost like sabotage on klopp's part to the lad's career or at least poor man-management. You request that teams give your loans amble playing time, and Huddersfield who are willing to do so at the Premier league not doubt are not considered.

{Ed002's Note - I am sure it wasn't deliberate.}


12.) 27 Aug 2017 12:55:53
I agree on having 3 keepers but surely losing mignolet would not be the end of the world, even if it would leave us "short" until at least jan.

{Ed002's Note - What is happening in January?}


13.) 27 Aug 2017 13:06:30
That would be the transfer window where we could sign a new keeper if needs be.


14.) 27 Aug 2017 13:07:46
Like Ed, I said in the offseason that Ward should have been let go on loan to further get experience in the PL this season BUT bizarrely, Klopp chose to keep him. He may yet still go out on loan this window but only time will tell.

As for Migs, we should have binned him when we had the chance and given Karius (Klopp's choice, mind you) a real chance at the job for a season and a half at best, to see if he was up to the job. Migs has cost us goals and games and points in the past and we should stopped the bleeding then, like Pep did with Hart. Cos at least then, you can fully focus on getting Karius ready to take the reins and Migs won't be there top cost us goals anymore.

Now, no one really knows what he has got as 10 games where he made two mistakes, does not mean his is bad, nor does it mean he is good enough and Migs has reverted bag to his flapping and clapping at crosses again.


15.) 27 Aug 2017 19:36:05
If Mignolet goes and we need a third keeper for cover, Given is looking for a club.


16.) 27 Aug 2017 22:29:42
Sorry Fitzy didn't spot this until I'd said same above. Given would be a good call, model pro and still a solid keeper.


 

 

23 Aug 2017 09:45:48
Eds are we interested in Howedes of Schalke?

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any Liverpool approach to Schalke for Benedikt Howedes at this time - I assume if they do it would be as an alternative to van Dijk.}


1.) 23 Aug 2017 15:25:28
Again with the Howedes questions -. - use the search people xD he is too slow for our high line and at the age where he is only going to get slower 😖
Hope he isn’t VVDs alternative like 😂😂.


2.) 23 Aug 2017 15:43:27
Please use below template going forward :)

Q: Ed's are we interested in "INSERT PLAYER A's NAME HERE"

A: I am not aware of any Liverpool approach to "INSERT CLUB NAME HERE" for "INSERT PLAYER A's NAME HERE" at this time - I assume if they do it would be as an alternative to "INSERT PLAYER B's NAME HERE"


 

 

21 Aug 2017 21:24:15
Hi eds any truth that we have agreed a deal to sign Kovacic from Real?

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool and Real Madrid agreeing such a deal, sorry.}


1.) 22 Aug 2017 01:06:16
Kovacic? Where did that one come from?


2.) 22 Aug 2017 01:14:09
Hopefully we go for him next season when we replace Coutinho. Don't see how Real can guarantee him first team football with Casemiro, Modric, Isco and Kroos in the squad.


3.) 22 Aug 2017 05:47:05
An alternative to Keita? We are looking at one Central midfielder! Aren't we?


4.) 22 Aug 2017 07:31:25
Seems like regurgitated news from the 2015 window, before he left Inter to join Real Madrid.


5.) 22 Aug 2017 08:27:24
Was it Harry who posted this rumour cos the Kovacic thingy is SOOOO 2015?


6.) 22 Aug 2017 09:44:00
Someone said this to me today too.


7.) 22 Aug 2017 10:05:03
Just a rumour that apparently he would be happy to join IF we sold Coutinho and needed a replacement.

No fee or agreement is in place and Juve have also apparently been quoted some crazy figure like £80m plus for Kovacic at some point this summer which means that Liverpool probably wouldn't bother anyway.

Just news for the sake of news but nothing in it.


8.) 22 Aug 2017 13:23:09
Sod kovacievic we need defenders.


9.) 22 Aug 2017 13:54:15
Kovacic is quality addition to the depleted midfield. What's with verbal agreement anyway? Just get him already, we have less than 8 days left. come on man.


10.) 22 Aug 2017 14:43:55
Looks a really good player. Everyone knows we have a slightly thin squad but then people say we already have enough midfielders. We have a lot of midfielders, yes, but we play with five. LW LM CM RM RW. We need a CB yes and I still believe we will sign vvd. It's been on the cards all summer. Our new LB looks brilliant and I have to say, I did call that one. Kovacic would be a class addition. Forget about the word "replacement" coz Phil is going nowhere😏 we could do with a bit more creativity to feed our classy forward line. I don't think we will see a game where one of Mane, firmino or salah doesn't score.

Don't worry about the CB problem. That fact we haven't moved for someone other than VVD tells me we have all but got our man. Also, people scream that we need defenders. Let's not forget the last game we played we had a clean sheet and JM was immense against a pretty dangerous attacking team. Palace are lacking on a lot of areas, but a forward pair of Benteke and Saha is as good as anyone. Liverpool shut them out.

Kovacic is the sort of addition I've been waiting for all summer. I really hope it happens.

To end, I predict we are going to win the league. City aren't going to gell straight away. United have had a couple of decent results against relegation fodder but their weaknesses are going to be exposed when they come up against decent opposition and again, their team spirit will disappear. Chelsea will struggle to get in the top four and I think Arsenal and liverpool will be fighting it out for the title. We are the two most settled clubs. The others are full of new faces who aren't used to getting battered at West brom or stoke. Physically. Lacazette and Mane fighting it out for the golden boot. Spurs europa league qualification and then next year we move for Deli Ali.


11.) 22 Aug 2017 15:34:16
You do realize Zaha didn't play due to injury?

are you seriously saying we are going to win the league based on beating Crystal palace 1-0.

give it 20 games before jumping to that conclusion! we drew 3-3 to watford last week, so I think a bit of patience is necessary.


12.) 22 Aug 2017 16:37:24
Got to love the optimism. Lol.


13.) 22 Aug 2017 18:49:01
Too right RNRED, we won the European cup with rafa beating teams 1 0. 3 points is 3 points. We are going to need lallana back coz we miss his intelligence. But I think our first team is better than anyone else's. We have a great manager. We bought three players, two of which were written off straigt away, Robertson and solanke have surprised us, they have been excellent so far. Our squad looks stronger already and I think we are going to win every game.


14.) 22 Aug 2017 20:00:44
We can't win every game. we already drew 1. 😳.


15.) 22 Aug 2017 20:18:55
Just saying i would love kovacic but juventus had a 75mill bid rejected or something like that so he wouldn't come cheap.


16.) 22 Aug 2017 20:29:59
Actually it would b nice too get kovacievic plus a defender at the very least anythin less an we officially have no ambition to do well this season its obvious the squad needs depth, an how is it its only us fans who see that.


17.) 23 Aug 2017 15:07:10
Yeah we drew against watford but I think it's pretty clear we should have won that game. We won all but one pre season game we won two out of three proper games.

Cannot believe all the thumbs down from liverpool fans when I say "we will win the league" carry on with the pessimism. Talk about "Supporting your club"


18.) 23 Aug 2017 15:25:35
Love the pessimism guys. Do you think chelsea, city, spurs and united fans are not thinking "we are going to win the league" of course they are and I don't understand why reds fans aren't thinking the same? Looks like pc is staying, we bought three top players. And our squad was thin but brilliant last year. We have the best first eleven in my opinion.


19.) 23 Aug 2017 20:05:58
Do you still think we can't win the league? Lol.

Ed2 .......

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - It is just a random player - this is the Liverpool page.}


1.) 06 Dec 2017 14:52:32
It wasn't at all apparently we are interested in him, just asking a question.

{Ed002's Note - Repost it then and I will explain what his agent said last week.}


 

 

30 Nov 2017 18:24:29
Ed1 I read your match report mate from last night, just wandering who your midfield would be?

Mighty reds

{Ed001's Note - I honestly do not know, maybe Can and Henderson sitting. Whoever it is, they need to play together regularly to build up a proper partnership.}


1.) 30 Nov 2017 18:52:28
Personally If we are going to continue with the 2 man midfield than it has to be Emre and wijnaldum. Hendo cannot play in a 2 and currently is miles off the pace. Emre and wijnaldum have worked well together in the past. Emre offers much than hendo in the 6 in my opinion. He carries the ball forward, plays incisive forward passes, breaks up the play and uses his physical presence effectively. Although he does have a tendency to drift for periods of games.

{Ed025's Note - now im waiting for you to make a case for wijnaldum SIB....i cant wait to hear this one mate..


2.) 30 Nov 2017 20:44:13
We need to get Lallana back fit as soon as possible. For me the midfield 3 would then be him, Can and Coutinho. In an ideal world we would strike a deal to bring in Kieta early in Jan with Coutinho then committing his future to us. However neither is going to happen.


3.) 30 Nov 2017 20:51:20
Can and Hendo sitting is the only viable option at the moment imo. Neither of them is good enough defensively to play "the pivot", or "the 6", or whatever you want to call it, by themselves. Can doesn't seem to ever spot danger and whilst Henderson does spot it sometimes and react, he's not a particularly effective tackler. And none of our other midfielders do any defending at all, inevitably leaving whomever out of Can or Hendo is picked to hold the fort themselves. Which neither of them can do. Did you see how many times Allen got free yesterday? He's Joe Allen. He's not actually good, yet he bamboozled Can basically with his ability to run around a lot. And of course Can got no help from Gini.

At least if there was Hendo and Can sitting, they'd help each other out and the third central midfielder could effectively be absolved of all notional defensive responsibility and focus on helping Firmino press.

We have to change something anyway, because none of our central midfielders are having a good season. Hendo's copped a lot of stick, but I don't see who's done any better than him. Can hasn't. Milner hasn't. Gini hasn't. Speaking of Gini, he's really frustrating me. He's got lots of ability, yet every other match he's totally invisible. It's not good enough at this level.


4.) 30 Nov 2017 20:52:58
Jayden, Can would be ruthlessly exposed with Lallana and Coutinho either side of him.


5.) 30 Nov 2017 20:23:19
Well Emre is our best midfielder and he works best with wijnaldum. Also wijnaldum does a lot of work that goes unnoticed, he's links the play and gets forward. I'll agree though that some of his performance this season have been very poor. Him and Emre carried us to the top 4 last season too.

{Ed025's Note - i think can is a good player and agree with your assessment of him SIB, but wijnaldum on the other hand is inconsistent and disappears in games to the point you dont know whether hes playing or not, we all have our favourites of course mate but i dont think he deserves even a place on the bench..


6.) 30 Nov 2017 21:03:03
Something red you're not wrong there mate. But our midfield is ruthlessly exposed when Henderson and Wijnaldum play next to Can as well.


7.) 30 Nov 2017 21:40:49
hendo sitting, can and gini / lallana providing the legs.

{Ed025's Note - hendo sitting is a great idea faith..on the bench of course..


8.) 30 Nov 2017 21:40:54
Ya very true ed025 I wouldn’t class wijnaldum as one of my favourites but he can be effective, although I’d agree with you that especially this season he has been extremely inconsistent and non existent in some matches. With keita and potentially Goretzka joining he’ll face stiffer competition to start regularly.

{Ed025's Note - i doubt he will be at the club if and when them 2 come mate..


9.) 30 Nov 2017 22:35:30
We'll need a big squad to compete in every competition. If Emre sadly leaves then we really can't afford to let wijnaldum go in my opinion.


10.) 30 Nov 2017 23:19:53
Have any of you Hendo haters ever actually watched what he does? You should, he gets through the work of 2 men in there and we miss him when he’s not in the side. He has his faults like everyone but he is an extremely good player and a great lad off the pitch too. Ed25 is just jealous because his team’s midfielders wouldn’t even make our U23 side.


11.) 30 Nov 2017 18:43:23
Ed01, again regarding midfield have you any idea why zmilner keeps getting game time. I really don’t see what he brings to the team, what are your thoughts on him and who should be getting those sub appearances if you also think he’s not suitable.

{Ed001's Note - Milner gets time because he has a good attitude and is paid a ridiculous amount of money, too much to just be sat on the sidelines not being used.

He brings lots of energy, but it is usually misdirected and he does not work back well, which means whichever part of the midfield he plays in is completely open to being countered. He is a headless chicken, runs around a lot, a hell of a lot, but it is aimless and usually he just clutters up the spaces other players want to use. I wouldn't even have him in the squad to be honest.

As for who should get the appearances, depends on the situation but it makes no sense to buy Robertson and then not put him on the bench, at the very least. Now we have Lallana back and needing time to get back his sharpness, there should be no need for Milner.}


12.) 30 Nov 2017 22:15:17
Did we have a few SC's to celebrate last night Ed?

{Ed025's Note - no barry we only beat west ham mate and they are a joke, if i was drinking it would be to drown my sorrows at the appointment of the new manager..


13.) 01 Dec 2017 03:28:20
As it stands, Everton's midfielders dream of playing well enough that they might challenge for a spot on our bench. So can completely understand Ed25 being obsessed about who is on it.

{Ed025's Note - none of our lot would make your bench phil thats true but i am far from obsessed i can assure you, the trouble with a lot liverpool fans is they live in a fantasy world where all their players are world beaters and no one should dare criticize them, its time to wake up and smell the coffee mate and realize that the majority of your team are decidedly average, im sorry and i know that the truth will hurt but like superman i dont tell lies..


14.) 01 Dec 2017 07:01:39
Nailed it Ed025 😄😄. The irony is the listen you cautiously while they take their vent at me! 😄😄😄.

{Ed025's Note - your my punch bag it seems harry, unless you say everything in the garden is rosy you are made a pariah and should be banished from the kingdom, i try to be honest and will always applaud players who are talented whoever they play for like i have been about salah ,mane and couts, but i tell it like it is and will not bow to the red tinted brigade who dont like to hear that some of the team are not up to the level of teams who expect to challenge mate..


15.) 01 Dec 2017 07:44:42
Agree with Ed025. LFC have a fantastic front 3 in Mane, Firmino and Salah. Gomez and TAA are also imo on the verge of something special. Next season we have another brilliant player in Keita joining. But that's about it when it comes to top class players at LFC.
Our defense is average compared to other top teams while our midfield is soft and lacks balance. Just a hunch of B2B mids running around like headless chickens.
Mane, Salah, Firmino, Keita, Gomez, TAA, OX and other young ones like Solanke and Woodburn aside, our entire first team can be improved on.


16.) 01 Dec 2017 07:47:23
i don't understand fascination with hendo. does what he does allright, but he a above average english midfielder. i think keita next year will show us what a midfielder needs to be. he might make hendo look good but when you shall compare the two, you's know how basic hendo's game is. he does that well granted but is no out of this world allmighty midfielder . sorry. i don't see him being better than either can or gini, so for me its can and gini, with lallana/ ox in front and then the front three.


17.) 01 Dec 2017 07:47:23

Spot on Ed25. Shame you’re a blue really.

{Ed025's Note - im thinking the same thing smp..


19.) 01 Dec 2017 10:31:15
Absolutely Ed025. And why would we pretend / lie. They claim I am fascinated to other clubs players lol. I was the only one pleading this page to treat Coutinho fairly! I am blunt mate why I see things many on this page wouldn’t want to see! If someone is good no matter what color he wears he is good. Simple!

{Ed025's Note - im with you harry mate..


20.) 04 Dec 2017 09:00:55
Our best setup for a high press has been a Hendo, Gini and Lallana who work well as a team to squeeze the life out of the opposition

If sitting a little deeper I’d go with Can and Hendo in more of a 4-2-3-1 to provide a bit more cover to the back four, then use Lallana or Coutinho further forward.


 

 

26 Nov 2017 09:05:10

Great position?

It was frustrating even tho, we did not play our best for diverse reasons (changes, injuries to Can and Lovren, some players like Milner and Studge under par) BUT we did enough offensively and defensively in the 2nd half to win the game and then the fluke happened. On to the next game with hopefully Mane and Firmino back in the lineup.

WTF happened! The winning team of 2005 would never have let a three goal lead slip away. We were excellent at protecting a lead. At half time I was praising the boys. I don't think it should have been a penalty tbf, We don't have enough steel in our team, iv'e said it before and it is true, Hendo and gini have a go, but neither is strong enough though. It is a shame Emre is leaving coz he is the sort of player we need. Offer him the world, he is a great player and we should keep him. I suppose a draw is cool, I would have taken that before the game but 3 0! Lasty season Mane would have buried that volley! Firmino was class, he is SO good, people who doubt him know f**k all about football, he stitches the attack together, his deft touches light up the stadium. He is scoring plenty, well on course for 20+.

Agreed, a good result that most fans would have taken before kick off. Unfortunately the way it played out feels like a defeat but there is a reason why Sevilla are unbeaten at home for a year.

Mightyyou keep telling us how utd will get puls post mourinho frankly may be it liverpool who need him more because klopp clearly understands as much about defending as you do about football which for both of you is not much.


5.) 22 Nov 2017 10:33:38
Firmino was a big part of the problem yesterday. In the second half he never once held the ball up. The ball just kept coming back for the full 48 minutes. I don't blame him as much as klopp. Anyone could see we needed a change of system and Firminho should have been replaced he was walking in the last 20 minutes.

Firminho runs around so much that is his only one way of playing, he is another that doesn't think and can't manage a game. Football is not all about charging around 100mph. let's get 10 men behind the ball, move side to side and let Mane and Salah take turns going further forward.

Ed1 this week as started off well mate, especially today with actually a board realising that the thug of a manage that Mourinho idolises himself on in Pullis as been fired.

Mighty reds

{Ed001's Note - he is far from a thug. Pulis is a very nice guy, it is just that his teams play that way to make up for a lack of quality. Personally I would prefer it if he tried to improve the quality rather than do that, but it worked for him initially so he stuck with it.}


1.) 20 Nov 2017 12:41:04
Ok fair enough ed1, you have never been very complimentary of his sides. And I can't believe how he had the media adoring his sides.

{Ed001's Note - I can't stand the way he sets his teams out, but he is a genuinely nice guy who does a lot of charity work. I would suggest that is why he gets a good press, as he is very well liked amongst the media. He is on good personal terms with most of the pundits, for instance, which always helps avoid criticism.}

I heard a story about Pulis. I can't vouch for it's accuracy but it came from someone who was involved with the club in question at the time.

Pulis was playing for Newport County in the mid 80s. One week then Bournemouth manager, Harry Redknapp, came down to Newport to watch Pulis himself after getting a recommendation.

It got to about 25 minutes in and Redknapp was not impressed by Pulis at all, he was considering leaving at half time because no one on the County team was anywhere near good enough.

However during the first half a player in Newport County kit came over and sat down not far from Harry. It took him at least 10 minutes before he introduced himself as Tony Pulis. Redknapp turned to him and said "What the f*** are you doing here? I came to watch you"

Turns out Pulis had picked up an injury earlier that day and didn't play. Harry had been looking at the wrong player the whole time.

The two of them chatted for the whole game about football and tactics and got on incredibly well. Pulis was signed for Bournemouth without Harry ever having watched him play.


A nice story, I really hope it's true.

good post Red, but after watching the four goals conceded V Chelsea, he really needed a new back four, they were awful .


4.) 20 Nov 2017 20:29:13
Do you think he would consider the Wales Job ed1?

{Ed001's Note - yes, but he would prefer the day to day of club football from what I know of him.}


5.) 20 Nov 2017 20:45:41
Thank you for the reply! Would you know who's in the running?

{Ed001's Note - I don't think they have any idea themselves yet mate. They were expecting (hoping) Coleman would stay.}


6.) 20 Nov 2017 21:40:46
It's a shame he went. Cheers for the reply 👍.

{Ed001's Note - I think the time was right, nice guy but he had taken Wales as far as he could and could no longer rely on telling the players to do it for Gary Speed to get a performance out of them.}

But if the player Klopp wants is not achievable then no need to panic buy.

Ed1 if we pull off the Lemar and Vijk Dijk deals do you see a real title challenge this season, also have we made a proposal to sign Sanches on loan from Munich?

Mighty reds

{Ed001's Note - the club expected a title challenge anyway, so did I. I don't know anything about Sanches or loan bids from us sorry. I can't tell you one way or the other.}

Sanchez as chucked his toys for the last 6 months as Arsenal, not sure I would want that attitude at my club, might be a decent player, not sure he as a good mentality.

Klopp would of got slaughtered if he made no changes and we lost, his team was more than good enough to win today, but take the point and move on to Wednesday.

Klopp is a great manager and I love his passion for the game, he takes no crap, didn't the rich man's Pullis ask City to stop celebrating, the guy is an idiot.

Totally agree mate plus a real good performance yesterday, plus a point gained on the rich man's Pullis team and Chelski.

Is Verrati not there first choice anymore?

Mighty reds

{Ed002's Note - Verratti plays in a different position and is one of a number of players they have considered as an Iniesta replacement - unrelated to Coutinho where they have alternatives to Coutinho to consider. We are beginning to go around in a circle with this.}
