Coutinho would prefer to stay. He's always been a very genuine guy since his days at inter. He recently said to a friend of mine that champs league is not a requirement for him staying and while Barcelona interest is flattering he's happy where he is for now.

I can't see him leaving unless Barcelona stump up the ridiculous asking price and the club decide to sell.

Also in other news I wouldn't count on James going to United as he has stated he does not think their style of football will suit him at all and is not keen on being rotated.

I'm still holding out hope that he stays and plays midfield next season!

I really hope your friend is right. I don't want us to have to force him to stay like the Suarez debacle, I want Coutinho to want to stay!

If he stays and we invest in a left winger and new full backs I genuinely think we are title contenders next season.


2.) 20 May 2017 12:29:56
A Liverpool fan approaches a Liverpool player, he's not going to say yeah I want to go Barcelona is he?


3.) 20 May 2017 12:41:58
I'd hope Rodriguez does go to united and ends up playing as a second full back like Henrikh Mkhitaryan does. Particularly since it means another season of enmity and unhappiness at united.


4.) 20 May 2017 15:44:18
if there is any truth in rumours Neymar's dad/ agent suggesting he move away to come out of Messi's shadow then might impact on Coutinho wanting to move to FCB, I believe Neymar is the one constantly in the media about him going there.

{Ed002's Note - There are a couple of sides interested in Neymar but I would not expect a move this summer. Ideally Barcelona want to build around Neymar going forward - and they would be happy to see Messi move on. I have no idea what his father has said.}

Ed2, I know that this is technically a European question ....

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with Liverpool or Coutinho.}

@Fency

The friend of mine who spoke with him is a coach from inter who is still friends with coutinho from their inter days. It wasn't a liverpool fan asking him.

Thanks Nevada for passing that on mate 👍.

Haven't posted in a long time.

Was recently in the company of some friends at Real hierarchy and one mentioned (in passing) that James agent had been speaking about his clients preference for teams in the UK (Liverpool were mentioned as one) . Whether this was angling for better negotiating position or not is debatable.

I have not spoken to anyone who spoke directly with the player so I can't tell you his thoughts on the subject but thought I would share this info.

Why not if lopp wants him neymarbwants to play with coutinho
Theo for left back Jessie for defensive midfield.


2.) 10 Apr 2017 21:35:57
Surely only interested if Coutinho goes, would be daft no ey and daft wages so would prefer someone else.

Kovacevic has been asked by a member of the coaching staff how he feels about a move to England. I'm not saying we'll sign him because this happened about a year ago as well. He has defintely been asked though.

Nevada

1.) 05 Jun 2015 09:51:35
Coaching staff of whom? Croatia, Inter or some sort of third party?

Inter

Question for ed001

Do you know if we will even approach ancelotti? I happen to know that he would be interested in talking to us about the job.

Thanks

Nevada

{Ed001's Note - no approach will be made to him while he has a job at Real Madrid, it is not even certain he will leave there now. The players have made it known they wish him to stay and the right replacement has not been found.}


1.) 19 May 2015 15:50:09
If only we could trade Rogers for ancelotti.


2.) 19 May 2015 17:57:39
Hi Ed, weird question but do you know of any managers that have effectively swapped teams? Ashy77's post just got me thinking about whether it has ever happened.

Cheers,

{Ed001's Note - I am sure it must have happened, but I can't think of an instance right now. I think I am forgetting some instances though as it feels like it has happened.}


3.) 19 May 2015 19:58:22
Did Birmingham and Blackpool swap managers last season?


 

 

08 May 2015 08:54:45
Sampdoria will not pay asking price and are looking for loan to buy with balotelli.

Hi eds and posters,

Just a question for any ed really. Is hendos long standing heel problem one which is likely to be resolved? Is it the type of permanent injury which needs to be 'managed' rather than fixed?

Nevada

{Ed001's Note - hard to be sure, it is possible it can be fixed, but, I am told, that only happens for some people. Some people just have to learn to manage it.}


 

 

23 May 2017 10:43:05
Nice to see big Phil stating publicly what he has been saying privately for weeks now.

"Stay here and they will end up building a statue in your honour, " - Coutinho to ESPN Brasil

It's rare to see a player for whom honesty is important.

Some people on here after the game say we played badly and quote statistics like possession, shot allowed on goal, uncompleted passes etc.

Yet when I use statistics to analyse a player it's often dismissed as statistics are an invalid method of analysis. You can't pick and choose when to apply them? You either apply them to all arguments or none not just when it suits your argument.

I didn't see the game last night, nor have I looked at the stats but before the game I was happy with a draw at a ground where we hardly ever play well or get any luck and we got it.

Had man utd got this result last night people would be saying scraping points against teams that you struggle against is how you win titles. Why can't we apply the same logic and just be satisfied that we got one more point than any of us expected to get and move onto the next game.

Nevada

1.) 25 Aug 2015 12:15:47
Nevada I personally use statistics to back up a point,for example,when I say we were getting overloaded on the left clyne vs Monreal,and that we shouldn't have sat back and invited pressure,and to show that we offered nothing in the second half going forward. This isn't an abuse of stats its teamed up with an analysis of what was actually happening on the field that I have described.

It's not just a blind stat for example,skrtels the best defender because he completes 77% of passes etc etc. there is some I HOPE TACTICAL discussion it backs up. I don't think any one who watched the game tactically or statistically can deny they kitchen sinked us in the second half.

As ED001 said Man utd thumped teams and won as well as winning when poor.we've played poorly and won 2 games and drawn one,2 of which we shouldn't have got those results,but did on poor reffing desicions. I haven't seen a man utd chelsea City Arsenal esque title winning performance yet in our opening 3.

If we start dictating the play,tempo,passing ,and look incisive in the final 3rd ill say we are playing well. we aren't at the moment


2.) 25 Aug 2015 12:17:50
Because they never satisfied in here Nevada, I agree with you, it was a good result, heck its a very good start to the season. Yes a little disappointment , Arsenal were there for the taking in the first half, we could n't score, but we were very lucky their goal was deemed offside (I don't think it was).


3.) 25 Aug 2015 12:36:16
I watched it and i'll give you an unbiased of our performance as best as I can.

The first half we played some nice football, Coutinho and Benteke linking up well, Firm showing some promise for his first game. If it wasn't for Cech, Coquelin last minute tackles, the woodwork and slight early season rust we could/should of been 2/3-1 up.

With Lucas in midfield we were defensively sound except for the "offside" goal that should of stood, due to Skrtle being a yard out of position playing Ramsey on. He also went on and got a needless yellow however his interception in the second half that could so easily have gone in his own goal (now idea how it didn't, it's Skrtle after all!) made up for it, as without that touch Walcott was in.

Lovren and Clyne were both steady, doing their job with Gomez standing out (what a buy).

The midfield trio worked hard and well together and we were fairly balanced.

Second half Arsenal woke up and were pounding at the door, we did well to defend it with only the odd attack, maybe with Sturridge back and Can/Ibe with a few games under their belt the counter attacks will be more promising.

Moreno came on and ran off with the ball again, if he could sort his final pass/decision making he can make a great impact sub.

Mig made a couple of great saves, missed one punch on a cross but otherwise did well.

Overall, before the game a draw at Arsenal is a good result, however once their CB partnership were both out of the game we needed to be ruthless with our finishing and we'd of won it on the first half. It is still early in the season.


4.) 25 Aug 2015 13:51:18
Logical

What a wonderful way to have a go at Skrtel. Brilliant. The lad shouldn't touch the ball at all.


5.) 25 Aug 2015 13:51:59
I can understand your point Bob, I even agree with some parts of it to a certain extent (my original post was not aimed solely at yourself by the way). I too would like to see us keep up a high and aggressive tempo for 90 mins. This however assumes some rather large things.

1. That the other team is either incapable or unwilling to prevent us from doing this.

2. Our team has the skill and energy to enforce this.

Did we take our foot off the gas or did arsenal do that? I don't know because I was unlucky enough to miss the game, ED001 suggested a little of both. I think it's naïve to assume that a team of arsenals quality would not be able to do anything to prevent us from playing that way the whole game so I'm inclined to say that it's not possible (against good opposition) to do that.

There is a phrase that keeps getting thrown around this forum a lot (which I'm not overly fond of) that seems appropriate in this case "There is only one statistic that matters - how many games you win" It's simplistic but apt in the correct context.

Thanks for chipping in everyone, intelligent and civilised debate is always positive.


6.) 25 Aug 2015 13:28:11
Bob has it bang on, stats should be used to enforce an argument alongside other information and should not, as some posters seem to do, just be plastered about with no reference as to where they came from.


7.) 25 Aug 2015 14:26:20
To be fair though Bob, I haven't seen a "man utd chelsea City Arsenal esque title winning performance" yet in the opening 3 games of Man Utd, Arsenal or Chelsea.

I agree we are not playing as well as we would all like to see, but I don't see why we should be any more worried than we would be if we supported these teams. And nobody expects them to have a poor season.

People, pessimistically but quite fairly, said wait and see how the defence holds up against Arsenal before we celebrate the clean sheets.

We came away with another, so let's have a break from the moaning and save it for when we're not third in the table.


8.) 25 Aug 2015 14:53:25
87.3% of all stats are made up on the spot.


9.) 25 Aug 2015 15:15:49
Joe you've certainly seen it from City though.


10.) 25 Aug 2015 21:42:09
Boba you should say: i use stats whenever they suit my argument!
Arsenal had 19 shots you say, 5 of them only on target and 1 hit the post so 6 shots on target. While we had 8 and hit the post twice so 10 shots on target so these stats say we were the more dangerous team and certainly the stat of Peter Cech being Motm suggests we could have won. I can't stand this nonsense about when we play well its other teams that are awful and vica versa, it defies all logic.


11.) 26 Aug 2015 08:33:42
Malak how about that other stat. arsenal also scored a goal. we didn't


12.) 26 Aug 2015 09:30:33
That stat is in your head, Arsenal did NOT score and the game ended 0-0! So move on with this nonsense.

Question for the eds please?


Below is a post of mine from not too long ago in which I state that I don't feel 'year of transition' is either an adequate or even valid reason for failure in the 21st century. Would you agree or disagree with what I said and could you expand on your answer please?

25 Jun 2015
25 Jun 2015 18:15:10
This transition myth needs to dissappear, it's the 21st century and every other team managed to chop and change playing staff on a yearly basis and still have success, barca, Madrid, Chelsea, one could even argue United in recent years.

There's no such thing as transition in my opinion unless you literally replace every single player coach and manager. The club should have a plan in place to integrate players seamlessly without this need for a year of adjustment excuse.

Nevada

{Ed030's Note - I don't think you need a whole season to transition however a squad would be better off adding only 2-3 players to a team rather than 8-9. However this is not the case with Liverpool, after a hugely disappointing season there is a real need to bring in quality players however it seems yet again we will be bringing in a high number of players. If we sign 8-9 players only 3/4/5 will be playing regularly however it will take time for those players to adjust to the league/team/style etc. I believe it takes time for players to adjust to a new team however it is not enough to blame a whole bad season on. }


1.) 08 Jul 2015 16:14:30
If players were robots you'd be right Nevada but they're not.

Man Utd had just as many signings as us last season so you can get top 4 after chopping and changing a lot.


2.) 08 Jul 2015 20:56:12
Transition is just another excuse for being woeful. Seems we are the only team/club that use that rubbish to explain our woes yet we wonder why we have been poor overall in the league for the past generation. Buying 8 players per season whatever the combination is just dumb which is why we have a big squad for no reason

Question for ed001,

We spoke early last month about where we expected milner to play, both agreeing that he would probably play out wide. The addition of Clyne and Milner stating he has been told he would play centre obviously changes that.

My question is where are all these creative midfielders going to play? Do you think that Lallana, Coutinho, firmino, Ibe, Markovic, are all going to be happuy playing wide? With the exception of Ibe they all prefer to play more centrally and are arguably better in the centre too.

Nevada

{Ed001's Note - I think we have a problem, we have a logjam in the centre and no one to play wide. I just can't see how it can work in the long term. Hopefully the better players will slowly take hold of the places and the ones that can't step up will get moved on.}


1.) 08 Jul 2015 13:59:35
Agree with Ed01, We got too many players for the same role, Aparently none are a typical CM nor a CDM. Both Milner and Henderson resembles me of two typical B2B players. While Can would be on the bench for lagre portion of the season.
We have only one genuine CDM who could be out this window.
Markovic might go for a loan and could be sold on a massive loss as well as Lallana.


2.) 08 Jul 2015 15:01:56
The way I see things our midfield would consist of Can, Henderson and Milner. Can and Milner have both been promised game time in the centre and Henderson is not really any good anywhere else.

So unless we play with a 5 man midfield and 1 up front this would mean a 433 with those aforementioned creative players being played in areas of the field where they are the least effective. Seems like bad management on all levels to have 5 first team players all in wasted positions.


3.) 08 Jul 2015 15:59:08
Nevada

You do realize apart from Lucas none are holding player. All the three you mentioned are poor defensively.
Rodgers ll regret assuring players on their positions.


4.) 08 Jul 2015 16:48:18
All midfield players will get game time due to squad rotation and changes in formation throughout the season. having so many attacking and creative midfielders will give us plenty of options. just need a quality striker to compliment them all now


5.) 08 Jul 2015 16:07:25
I think Brendan genuinely views Lallana as a winger as opposed to a 10 who can play wing, probably the same for Firminio. So as far as brendan is concerned we have firminio, lallana, ibe, and markovic. I'm not concerned about keeping players happy, with all the comps we are in rotation will be crucial. Everyon had a real lack of quality in depth last season, which screwed them with the Europa

Part of the reason for the rejection is that Napoli were not offering straight money. I don't expect they will return with another offer.

some of the greatest keepers in history were pretty awful in their first year - Buffon, Shilton, Toldo all dropped in and out of first team in first 1-2 years. I think Oliver Khan is the only one who played consistently in first year for Bayern but then he had no competition at the time.

I can confirm what Ed says. Casillas is very fond of playing office politics and often had the ear of Perez. Zidane was never a fan which is why you don't see Casillas around Madrid.

I mentioned a few seasons ago that fiorentina have zero interest in working with LFC again after having many issues with Aquilani siging and then again with Lucas. It's not a recent problem and is not restricted to just current staff or executives. This is a problem infesting the entire club and they have been aware of this for a long long time and done nothing about it.

I think it's a little unfair to criticise the defence this year, it's been near constant change. I'd like to see how they perform when its the same back 4 every week without changing then make a judgement.
