Hey Ed001 mate, saw a reply the other day mentioning we are interested in Leipzig’s right back yet you couldn’t remember his name. Was it by any chance Laimer? or does the name still escape your memory.

OGIII

{Ed001's Note - sorry I can't remember his name, I just know we watch Leipzig regularly to check out Keita and he impressed the scouts. I had a look at their squad list but none of the names jogged my memory so not sure now if he was with them or playing against them. I could be misremembering what I was told. Sorry though, my memory has failed me badly on this one. I will have to try and get hold of the person who told me and ask them.}


1.) 25 Mar 2018 12:35:32
Who else from the Leipzig side would you take ed? For me, Werner, and Upamecamo and maybe even Demme. They have a very good young squad there.

{Ed001's Note - and Forsberg.}


2.) 25 Mar 2018 12:57:54
Is it Klostermann?


3.) 25 Mar 2018 20:23:14
Has anyone been watching Keita since he signed for us? How has he performed since jan does anyone know?


4.) 26 Mar 2018 05:42:21
@Jcw_XS - another poster by the name of 23carragold posts regular, often weekly updates related to all our loanees - keep an eye out for his posts.

Hey ed001 mate,

Just wondering if you know when Bobby’s new deal runs until as it’s only being deemed “long term deal”.

Have a good one mate.

OGIII

{Ed001's Note - I think it is the max term, 4 plus 1 if I remember rightly.}


1.) 29 Apr 2018 19:02:16
Easily my favourite player, so cheers everyone!


2.) 29 Apr 2018 19:23:58
Ed, what are your thoughts on contracts in modern day football?

For every player that signs a long-term contract and stays, it’s seems as though someone signs and leaves after 12 months. Not suggesting Bobby is leaving, I just don’t get as excited over new contracts as some others do!

{Ed001's Note - I don't tend to take any notice of them either. The only thing they do is either act as a problem when trying to offload someone or ensure you get a decent fee when someone you don't want to lose moves on.}


3.) 29 Apr 2018 20:22:40
He’s turning into a Liverpool great for me. I hope he carries on for the next 4 year in the same way. Love him 👊🏼.


4.) 30 Apr 2018 13:33:17
Last time a star player signed a long term deal it didn't end well. I love Bobby Firmino. Really hope he has found his football home in liverpool.


 

 

26 Mar 2018 07:41:51
Hey ed002

Sorry if this has been asked (you can tell me to rtfp), but ed001 seems pretty certain liverpool are looking at a right back this summer, was just wondering if you have heard of any substantial interest in right backs from liverpool.

Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - I really can't help, sorry.}

Why the negativity? all I remember from Liverpool V City at Anfield is a dominate performance. As long as we show who we are on our day we can beat City easily. Show some positivity 4-3 flattered City a lot more than it flattered the mighty Reds!

OGIII

1.) 16 Mar 2018 14:37:07
6-2 at Anfield.
7-3 at the Etihad.

9-9 on aggregate, Liverpool through an away goals 😂

No in all seriousness though, what a tie this is. Just relish it lads!


2.) 16 Mar 2018 14:38:54
I am not feeling too positive at the moment City are a far better team than us. But I am looking forward to the games and we have a chance of course. I would of just rather played anyone else.

IMO we beat City because we just had 9 days of (half on the beach) while they were playing two games) . We were a lot fresher than City. But the first game really flattered them that match could have gone either way. Klopp and the players will have to be 100% for us to progress to the semis.


3.) 16 Mar 2018 14:53:08
Did you watch us at the etihad as well? A one off game I’d agree we could beat them. Over two legs, I think it’s very unlikely. We’re not quite there yet in terms of beating the more elite teams if I’m brutally honest. Saturday against United showed this, tactically Klopp gets it wrong on the very big stage but he can get it right. I admire the optimism and there’s every change we can win, but drawing city wasn’t good for either of us or the chances of an English team finally winning it again.


4.) 16 Mar 2018 15:11:40
Kman, I did indeed, from my memory even a 1-0 lead flattered city at the time at the ethiedhad before the the Mane red card, in my belief other than Roma and Sevilla there could be no better tie for Liverpool considering other possible opponents. (just consider Juergen Klopp has the best win percentage against Pep than other any manager in the world) . It’s been done before in much harder circumstances and why can we not do it again?


5.) 16 Mar 2018 16:30:47
I don't believe City are a much better team than us. On paper if both teams played to 100% then they would edge it, however football doesn't work like that.

As good as they have been City have been handed the league second half of the season, case and point that Chelsea performance.
Teams have waved the white flag and rolled over for City before a ball has been kicked. Three teams gave them a fight, us, Wigan and Bristol.

If the boys play to their best and have a bit of luck we will make it to the semi's. One thing is for certain, Anfield will need to be rocking for the first leg!


6.) 16 Mar 2018 16:42:25
If I’m honest I’d have preferred to not have met them but like a lot of posters on here say, City will be more disappointed at meeting us as we are of meeting them. I think mistakes from the Etihad will have been learnt, and we were down to ten men before that incident we were by far the better team. Also we never had Van Dijk in either game against City.

The only good draws would have been Sevilla, Roma or Juve (due to suspensions they have for next round) . But at this stage of the competition no draw is easy.

Weren’t Chelsea the all conquering side in 2005 and also beat us twice in the league that season and beat us convincingly If i remember right?

Barring injury I think we have a great chance.


7.) 16 Mar 2018 19:53:50
23 just for today I am a bit pissed because I didn't want them, as it gets nearer I will get right up for the matches . Man city 1 to 15 are far better than we are, you can't question that.

I wish we were at home second leg.


8.) 16 Mar 2018 21:10:42
It's good to see the utd fans have stopped visiting our page now. They're out and all the talk in Lancashire is about liverpool and city. Liverpool will even dominate the Manchester Derby. Pep will be saying things like "we need to rest so and so and so and so for the ucl quarter final.

No one cares about utd today. I would have preferred to miss City in the draw but it has made utd irrelevant today and for that I'm pleased.

Also, what better way to throw down the gauntlet to city for next year's title than by knocking them out of the ucl

To the poster (jayden23) who would rather we concentrate on top 4 finish than try to win the ucl, well, if we win the ucl we are in it next year no matter where we finish. Why try so hard to get in it next year if we're not going to try winning it when we ARE there now.


9.) 16 Mar 2018 21:30:25
Kman92, City are a better team than we are YET we are the team they fear the most. Why? We are the team they struggle against the most historically since 2009 and after spending over 1 bn on transfers. Why do you think that is? It's cos there are some teams you do not match up with. Under Klopp, we are the only ones to beat City on a more consistent basis, putting a hatful past them. They are more afraid of us than we should be of them and remember, Klopp thrives as the underdog which is what has made his mystique and brought him success in his career. Keep the faith man.


Mark08, I'm not bothered about City or whoever cos the draw is what it is and we will give them a good fight like we always do and the chips will fall where they may.

Hey ed001 and other posters,
Wondering what your thoughts are on Lallanas more central performance against Arsenal, if I'm not mistaken he was played in his more traditional role at Southampton and found he was quite effective against Arsenal.

P. S first post on the site but a long term reader, massive fan of the work you and the other Eds put into the site!

OGIII

{Ed001's Note - he played mainly on the left of the attacking three in the Prem at Southampton, not centrally. He was poor, in my opinion, for most of the game, dwelling on the ball and losing it a few times. However, he stepped up when it mattered and it is the first game so might just have been off the pace due to a bit of rustiness. For me though, they found it easy to attack us through the middle, he offers little defensively, other than getting in the way. Sadly he was at fault on the first and got in Clyne's way to allow Oxlade-Chamberlain to get past far too easily, with no real attempt to stop him. I really was not impressed with him at all for 85 minutes of the match. He needs to quicken up or he is going to end up being a liability.}


1.) 16 Aug 2016 11:44:58
Where as I think he is already a liability.


2.) 16 Aug 2016 09:47:12
Ed, to me Lallana is our best exponent of defending from the front. Do you think I'm wrong or do you think it's a different skill to controlling the midfield?

{Ed001's Note - if you mean he works hard and runs around a lot chasing things, then yes he is fantastic, but that is not defending. If you are not in the right place to stop a pass being made or to put pressure on them and have no ability in the tackles is our best exponent, then yes he is the best we have. To me he is little more than useless running and is a massive hindrance to our style of play when we do have the ball, with his insistence on dawdling on the ball when a pass is on.}


3.) 16 Aug 2016 12:22:58
I think it's called match of the day moments more twirls than a ballerina. Don't think I've seen him hit a ball first time.


4.) 16 Aug 2016 13:45:29
Bar the goal, Lallana didn`t do much other than what he normally does which is well, very little. Same can be said about Wijnaldum. I still don`t see what he brings to this team as his inclusion makes us light in central midfield and he and Lallana did not offer any defensive cover which left Hendo exposed. Gini may have had a good assist and his ball to Lallana was perfect but still not good enough overall, IMO. Still early days tho, so we shall see.


5.) 16 Aug 2016 14:28:19
Ed, I'd hope you'd think slightly higher of me than 'I think he's good because he runs a lot'. From what I see he wins possession or forces an error from the opposition more than any of our other forwards which is how I'd define defending from the front. I've always assumed that's why he defies expectations by being repeatedly picked.

{Ed001's Note - I would say he does force errors or win possession more because of the fact that others are cutting off passing lanes etc as well. It is not all him. For me he does not do it enough for the amount of work he is putting in. He also does not help others do the same when they are the ones closing players, as shown when Oxlade-Chamberlain just ran past his pathetic attempt to help, which became pure hindrance because of his inability to make a meaningful challenge. For me, he is one of the weakest links in the team.}

Sorry but we have all got to stop looking for positives in players that just aren't there, people down the page saying Mingolet played well trying to find microscopic parts of morenos play be positive about and lallanas next in line by the look of it.

Making excuses and trying to stay positive about a player is one of the reasons we haven't won the league since 90, these three are simply not good enough, there so poor that when they do manage to put in an above average performance people jump on it like there world beaters. Let's just call a spade a spade, not good enough end of!


2.) 16 Aug 2016 10:35:13
Are you saying that Barry Venison was a better player than Moreno?


3.) 16 Aug 2016 11:29:53
The juicer i'd dare say torben piechnik was a better left back than moreno and torben was a cd couldn't have been much worse the more I watch of moreno the more im. convincing myself konchesky was a much better left back even tho I know it can't possibly be true although around February last season sky did a article on the premier leagues best defenders and amazingly moreno was at the top of the assist list no idea why or how.


4.) 16 Aug 2016 11:38:57
Oh I can't believe I almost forgot about nicky tanner.


5.) 16 Aug 2016 11:46:07
Barry Venison was a very underrated player. If memory serves me right he was captain of Sunderland against Norwich in a Milk Cup final in Wembley. Plus he had lovely hair.
Unlike me so it's not a Barry thing.


6.) 16 Aug 2016 12:04:02
The best football I saw since 1990 was Rodgers' 13/ 14, and Klopp's tenure to date is shaping up in a similar manner.

The best team I saw since 1990 was Benitez'. Better balanced and defended as a unit. Get the spine right and go from there. And presently, for me, the keeper is not right, centre defence lacks pace, as does deeper midfield.
So it goes beyond nit picking Moreno to bits.
IF Lucas was Kante, and Lovren was Sol Campbell and Mignolet was Clemence what would you think then?


7.) 16 Aug 2016 13:01:07
And if my aunt had boll**ks she'd be my uncle.


8.) 16 Aug 2016 13:01:41
waro,

i don't think it's about trying to find microscopic positives. it's more about giving praise where it's due. we hammer said players enough for the bad stuff.

moreno for whatever reason you want to give was much less of a car crash/ liability in the 2nd half - and mingo saved a pen and wasn't at fault for any of the goals we conceded.

i know you struggle with positivity waro ;)

{Ed001's Note - that is not giving credit where it is due though. Moreno was not as crap is not being positive, it is embarrassing that it has become our aspiration. Paisley would have cleaned house the moment he took over, the likes of Moreno would not have even had time to say hello boss before Paisley would have got them out of the door. Unfortunately times have changed and we seem to have a requirement to mollycoddle underperforming players, because otherwise we might hurt the dears feelings.

Fore me watching the warm ups summed up Moreno, he was doing the warm up routine in the circle, and at every change of exercise he was the last to notice it had changed, even though he was near the coach, because he wasn't listening. He clearly does not listen to instruction, if you are not going to listen and learn, then you will not improve. If you are not going to improve then you have to go. Every single player should be looking to improve constantly or be shipped out for someone who is.}


9.) 16 Aug 2016 13:40:17
Hi Eds

I may be making this up, but i'm sure at some point last season it was mentioned that Moreno was having trouble learning English. If this is true, do you think that has anything to do with him not listening to instructions?

I struggle to believe he was as bad defensively with Sevilla as he is with us, otherwise we wouldn't have signed him in the first place.

As i said, i may have made this up entirely, and I never really watch post-match interviews or anything so never heard him speak, was just curious.

{Ed002's Note - Scraping the barrel for excuses - but you are right his English is poor and only maginally better than Gerrard's.}


10.) 16 Aug 2016 14:10:15
87red, it's not positivity though is it it's blind faith, a never ending hope that one day they'll learn one day the penny will drop but it won't and people like yourself excusing poor players will keep undermining the team and we'll all end up accepting mediocrity as the norm and anything slightly above that will have the masses all excited over a player who's slightly above average, actually I'm not sure if we're not already at that point to be honest the way some fans on here go overboard about an OK performance.

If we want to get back to were we were then accepting mediocrity is not an option, if you want to go down that path then can I suggest you go and support Everton, there's a best selling dvd 📀 out now EVERTONS 50 GREATEST THROW INS! That should get you started fella😉.


11.) 16 Aug 2016 14:41:44
Waro is right. 87red, saying that somebody is negative because he speaks the truth is the hight of moral bankrucy, IMO. It is not an insult to say that a player who is awful, is awful. That is a statement of fact. People should stop always trying to paint a rosey picture about our club and certain players in areas where they are severely lacking. We will never be able to tell the hard truths and have a meaningful and honest debate about the issues if many on here keep telling us that the sun is shining whereas, we are seeing dark clouds. Moreno is awful and has been since he got here. That is a fact that can be verified by visual evidence. As Ed said, the guy is almost mentally unfit to be a professional footballer as he doesn`t listen, uncoachable and doesn`t seem to actually care about improving. It is because many make pathetic axcuses for poor players being poor is the reason why they are still here and why we can`t get a title run going. Sometimes, there are no silver linings after a storm and you have to make decisive decisions. if you cannot contribute to our success, you need to get gone, period. Stop defending the indefensible because you don`t wanna sound negative or because you wanna look like our no.1 fan as it`s becoming boring and is showing rank irresponsibility to do so.


12.) 16 Aug 2016 13:08:01
Ed001 credit to you. Like many of us I have read almost everything there is to read about the Arsenal Liverpool match. You are the only one to mention Lallana hindering Clyne for their goal. Great shout from you.

{Ed001's Note - has it not been mentioned before? I thought it was one of the most noticeable features. I am not a fan of Clyne's defending, but it is difficult for him to defend when his own team mate blocks him off!}


13.) 16 Aug 2016 15:42:07
I saw the lame hearted challenge he put in which only seemed to distract Clyne who if left alone, would have done a better job of stopping the Ox. Lallana was just loitering there and eventually contributed to the goal instead of preventing it.

Hey Ed001, do you know what the injury has been classified as. All we've I've read is that it "ligament damage". I've ruptured my ACL recently and wouldn't wish that on my worse enemy but its made me more curious about injuries, specifically the knee ones.

{Ed001's Note - they have just said ligament damage. Unusual for LFC as they are usually fairly forthcoming regarding injuries.}
