Seems pretty clear someone is on strike.
I had no problem with him going so long as the fee was fair by this window's standards, now I hope we make it a hard negotiation and take every penny we can up until the last minute, including the past 3 weeks' wages of nearly half a million quid while someone has been sulking.
Pep Segura talking about two players fees are not agreed on, wasn't he an Academy Manager at LFC?
Maybe that's where he picked that up 😆.

Wesley Hoedt anyone?
Anyone seen him play?
Highly rated apparently but not very aggressive allegedly, another Lovren maybe?

Not very good really. Not great in the air and not very strong in the tackle,

Reads the game well, good on the ball as well. He is an upgrade on Matip as a ball playing centre back, but he won't resolve our problems of lacking leadership and aerial weakness.

I'm not going to criticise the defence like everyone else today but offer an observation on TAA.
He's clearly very athletic, can dribble, can pick a pass, takes good dead balls, can cross and so on.
Seem like he'd make a good winger or preferably a box to box midfielder to me in the long run as he has the attributes, not sure of his tackling capabilities. He just needs to add some experience and a little muscle.
You got to hand it to Klopp for giving him the chance when could pick the more experienced Flano, Gomez and so on, or is that being too positive? 😂.

Really not sure changing his position would be a great idea at the moment. Think we should just let the guy enjoy the moment doing okay in a position we needed someone to try and make there own. Fingers crossed he will continue to do so.


2.) 16 Aug 2017 16:44:11
Gomez is not a right back and flanno was never in the running. TTA is the best option we have right now and he is taking his chances. Tbh at this rate clyne won't get back in the team. Defensively he has much to learn still, but i agree that eventually he will end up a midfielder.


3.) 16 Aug 2017 18:07:12
I said "in the long run". As in down the road or in the future Jordz.
I agree Gomez is not my choice at RB but I'm referring to how I'm happy Klopp didn't try him there over TAA. Some managers choose the easy way, experience over potential far too often. To balance it, Milner isn't a left back, hasn't stopped JK from putting him there for a season when he could have put a less experienced player there.

Very very happy with the result.
Not impressed by our 2 CBs.
The most vocal Matip was all night was when he blamed TAA for not playing the whistle for their goal.
Both he and Lovren played so high all game and were susceptible to long balls all night, it's probably under team instructions but was only a matter of time before they paid off - yes TAA should have played the whistle but if Matip at 6 foot 5 was slightly deeper he'd win that header all day surely. However, great great result.

Also moreno looked back to his usual self again, don’t think he knew where he was. And whenever he won a header he always seemed to head it towards the center of the pitch instead of clearing it wide 😓

We need to stop the high line when defending free kicks too it’s stupid. Running back against goal is asking for it xD

But on a positive set piece note, we seemed to do 50/ 50 zonal/ man marking instead of 100% zonal xD

Still a great result, first team to beat them at their home ground since the 15/ 16 season 😃.


2.) 15 Aug 2017 22:17:52
lovren and matip as a centre back partnership is an absolute shambles unless we can get a centre back in this transfer window and we've only got KLAVEN and gomez to come in think we could really struggle. and this zonal marking does my head in for Godsake mark your man.


3.) 15 Aug 2017 22:19:27
We couldn't cope with their diagonal long balls either, especially in the first half, pulling our midfield out of position, enabling lots of space for their runners to expose.


4.) 15 Aug 2017 22:19:40
Agreed.
Yep high line for free kicks is asking for trouble.
All it takes is a decent whipped ball and then just a touch from an attacker or defensive deflection and you're in trouble.
They're a good side though and should also be in the group phase so I am just delighted to win away. Won't be easy at home either but we've given ourselves a great chance now so well done the lads!


5.) 15 Aug 2017 22:32:10
I lost count of how many times Lovren got nutmeged! Matip is good on the ball but just a long bendy stick that gets bullied the rest of the time. Moreno doing his own personal bleep test on the left hand side didn't help either.
Other than that 😀
Great result that puts us in a solid position for the second leg. TAA showed extreme promise today, and we were again able to create many chances. If we don't manage to get any signings that will improve the first 11 then at least the youngsters will get a decent amount of game time this season see what they're really made of.


6.) 15 Aug 2017 22:38:55
Christ lads you can't criticise the players. Stand by for the moaning about the moaners posts.


 

 

15 Aug 2017 20:35:21
Great free kick from Trent.
Defence is shakey though.
Is it me or are the 2 CBs playing far too high a line?
Not moaning, delighted to be winning but we can't get away with it every time.
Need a second!

The two centre backs are trying to play their game but Moreno is messing the whole thing up and it's disrupting their games. They need to bloody have a word with him though.


2.) 15 Aug 2017 20:56:04
I agree he's been defensively poor so far but the two boys seem to be far too high up. Praying for a second cause I feel they will score.

I still think he'll be made to stay UNLESS Barcelona pay £130m or more.
He's definitely not injured in my opinion.
A back injury is the easiest "injury" excuse to not play or train properly and sit tight.
If he's doing it on the advice of his agent, he should be docked wages while he is doing this.
I totally understand he wants to leave and it's his dream etc. but he needs to be professional until it's done, same with Van Dijk by the way. When you're moving jobs, you don't call in sick for your full notice usually so footballers should be no different.
Perhaps buy-out clauses should become part of contracts in England like they are in Spain, can it hurt to try?

Can't all be wrong. Mahrez is pretty good. better than you might think.

To be honest, I've only seen him on the odd occasion, he looks more suited to Italian league or Spanish league football. Great touch, good football brain but seems slow moving and lazy to me. Might be worth a go if reasonably priced. Has anyone heard anything more concrete on this?

How do you ready a bid?
Plug in the fax machine and wait for it to reach optimal temperature?

I can't condone that first part you mentioned if true. I am very much aware of the extent ALL clubs go to to tap players up - it's a daily occurrence mate which is what I'm trying to tell you. Stoke and Southampton are perfectly within their right to report us if we did something illegal. But if all clubs reported "tapping up" incidents, there'd be far less transfers going on each season. This I can 100% guarantee you. There's a term for it within the game. I believe it's called a gentle tap or a soft tap. It's nothing new and happens at all levels of pro football.

{Ed002's Note - No, you simply don';t get it. Others do not go to the extent that Liverpool has done this. It is pointless you continuing to post about something you know so little about.}

If memory serves me right, Houghton had his best season, won the club's player of the year and Souness sold him for a million quid to Villa - unbelievable.
Staunton wasn't getting his game and was sold for around the same to Villa.
3rd bid for Coutinho rejected just now apparently of about £120m.

If we sign a new CB and CM this month, these same questions will continue on these two for some reason.
Can people not just move on?

Ian Holloway was pretty upset about it last night, looked a nervous wreck and he was suggesting jobs were on the line if the transfer window dates don't change.
I couldn't hear properly though as the Mrs was yapping away on the phone beside me 😆.

Depends on if he goes on strike I'd guess.
Personally I'd have no issue with him staying or going.
I just want either him to work hard as usual if he stays, or a fair transfer offer if he is to go.
£90m would have been a good offer in previous windows, this has clearly not been a normal window.
