Reports linking us with Charlie Taylor of Leeds. Is there any truths to this ed?

I read a little bit on him and he's a left back who can also play left wing. Is on the last year of his contract and has handed over a transfer request.

PakRed

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach from Liverpool but both West Brom and Middlesbrough have spoken with Leeds about Mr Taylor.}


1.) 26 Aug 2016 16:01:05
LFC are not signing a LB this window. Expect Balo and some of the squad players to move on before end of the window. Perhaps a holding midfielder/ deep lying midfielder is the only possibility of anything coming in.

Regards.


2.) 28 Aug 2016 02:43:55
I hear that Lucas leiva is a great holding mid. Should be pretty cheap too.

Eds just read on metro that liverpool have lodged a 31.2 million bid for higuain? it doesn't say 'interested in' it says bid lodged, any truth to this?

PakRed

{Ed002's Note - They are teasing you. No offer has been made. Liverpool might well be one of the interested clubs if he is made available for sale.}


1.) Yes that is a bid odd, although i'm not sure if higuain is such a good idea as you hear that he is a very lazy player.

I think we need a player like lavezzi who can have similar effects as suarez in terms of work rate and inspiring others. I know he is not a very good finisher but people forget that suarez early in his pool career was all huff and puff and not great finishing, so maybe rodgers can help lavezzi with that


2.) JOURNALIST: BR, BR, how do you plan on helping your defense get back to any sort of form.

BR: I'll tell you how sir. MORE STRIKERS!

My two cents on defensive errors and lack of clean sheets for us this season.

Maybe the best way to look at is not the clean sheet but the points dropped due to avoidable defensive mistakes.

I would say at burnly the two goals may have been avoidable while the goal and spurs was not that great defending either. So being over critical we can say 1+2 points dropped due to defensive mistakes.

However goal difference will make an impact in the end as well.

I think the title in 13/ 14 was not lost in the defeat to chelsea it was cause we conceded so many stupid goals in our wins that our good was lower than city while goals scored were 102 for us 103 for city

Subsequently we went on to try and score 7-8 at palace and ended up drawing. So basically the bad defending through out that season cost us the title.

So in short we need a better partner for Matip. Maybe gomez will be the answer.

PakRed

Yes but that season we were winning 3-2 at West Brom, 5-3 at Stoke etc. We were literally awful defensively and relied on outscoring teams.

We are not solid at the back but we are far from terrible. In 12 games we have only conceded more than once on 3 occassions. Arsenal where we won anyway, Palace where we won anyway, and Burnley which was largely down to Mignolet being incapable of basic saves.

Aside from that, yes we keep throwing away clean sheets, but we are not actually shipping an abhorrent amount of goals. We are smashing teams 4-1, 5-1, 6-1 etc. In 13/ 14 those would've been more like 4-3, 5-3 and 6-3!

The defence is actually much better. People just want to have their cake and eat it. Just have a look at Milners average position this weekend gone. We actually almost played a front 4 because he was further forward than Coutinho and mane. Clyne was also closer to Mane than he was to Matip. We play a system which is aiming to score goals and win games in an entertaining manner. Despite this gung-ho approach we still have the joint second best good in the league. Would you rather be like Spurs? Playing so many holding midfielders to cover you full backs, that you draw 6 games in 12 due to a lack of goals, and end up in 5th?

You don't consistently score 3+ goals playing a flat back 4 or lots of defensive midfielders unless you have a player like Ronaldo, Messi or Suarez. We don't. Our goals rely on flooding the box and lots of very good players linking up well. We don't have a 30 goal a season player.

I say stick to the way we are playing and just enjoy it. I'd rather win 6-1 than 5-0 anyway. Clean sheets don't matter. Firstly it comes down to GD. Then it goes to goals scored. So 6-1 is undeniably a better result than 5-0. Fact. Might not be as perfect, but it is worth more in a title race.


2.) 22 Nov 2016 13:18:39
Someone actually understand the importance of GOAL DIFFERENCE. Liverpool needed 10 goals margin against Palace to overtake City's good three years ago. You are right.


3.) 22 Nov 2016 13:37:12
See facts are facts 2 clean sheets in 12 games is not ideal.

Talking about goals conceded that didn't affect matter to the points collected:

1. Leicster (could have been avoided)
2. Hull (could have been avoided)
3. Palace (both could be avoided)
4. Watford (Could have been avoided)

So that's 4 clean sheets and -5 on goal difference.

You want to be ahead on good cause it matters in the end. and the ability to always concede will mean that the defense as a unit will play with lessor confidence.

It has gotten much better to when we had skertl but still improvements needed and i'm sure Klopp will iron things out.

But no one other than Matip at the moment gives me confidence in out cb available.

{Ed002's Note - If Liverpool had won every game this season by three goals to nil they would be well placed at the top of the table.}


4.) 22 Nov 2016 14:54:56
MK Scouser, that is the most spot on post.


5.) 22 Nov 2016 16:43:42
Pakred, MK is spot on. I posted in an earlier thread about how the Clean Sheet hysteria is nothing but that, hysteria and myth. We lead the PL in least shots conceded, chances conceded, least shots conceded and possession. We are much better at set pieces as we don`t even conceded them that much and when we do, they are dealt with. The opposition is too busy trying to stop us to fashion out enough chances to score. This is what our system does as in, defending by attacking. These are the hidden numbers that the two clean sheets do not show you. MK made the point that Spurs have the best defence in the PL yet can`t score more than one goal if Kane doesn`t play. They play 7 defensive players out of 11 so of course you will have a good defence. Same with Chelsea who play a defensive 3-4-3 formation with potentially 7 defensive players when they have the ball and 8/ 9 defensive players when they don`t. I don`t want us playing that way just to show we can get clean sheets hence, stifling our attacking talent. Also, our good is 2 goals less than Chelsea`s while we`ve scored 5 more goals than them (two of which beat them at the Bridge) . The point here is that we are much more innovative in our defending that does may not amount to plenty of clean sheets (don`t get me wrong, I want them more than the next guy) BUT reflects a different way of limiting the opponent to scraps as they are too busy worrying bout what we will do to them rather than what they can do to us. The fake fixation on this Clean Sheet nonsense is just that, nonsense.


6.) 22 Nov 2016 17:09:53
another quality post HR, I admired and agreed with the one you posted last night, from my own point of view I don't look at our defence and cringe, and I am old enough to remember a time we had a truly cringe worthy back 4, the thing to remember with these pundits is they change like the weather, atm they are fawning over Chelsea who I expected to challenge for the title btw, the minute they start conceding again they will be telling us conte has got it wrong, the only thing karius had to do last match was to stay awake, not bad for a goalkeeper behind such a "weak" defence.


7.) 22 Nov 2016 17:49:58
ED02, is it auto correct or do you keep changing goal difference to good, for a laugh? I can't believe almost everyone is missing it.

{Ed002's Note - I haven't changed anything.}


8.) 22 Nov 2016 22:23:05
I really feel like the chairman of the Hamilton appreciation society at the moment but again bang on mate. Give me exciting attacking football any day rather than a clean sheet first and hope for a goal. Spurs have the best defence in the league but have only scored in open play in one of their last 8 games in all competitions. I know who I'd rather watch.


9.) 22 Nov 2016 21:26:44
I blame Sparky.


10.) 23 Nov 2016 00:36:11
Spot on, KK and Pips for the compliments. I enjoy reading yours as well. I just feel inspired right now and when I did he research of the "hidden numbers" within the stats to see that this pathetic idea that our defence is weak just because we have 2 measly clean sheets was nothing but a media myth, a con they wanna use to beat us and Klopp with because well, he's making them uncomfortable as they seem uncomfortable with our progress. Klopp is showing that you can be defensively sound while at the same time, playing a fluid and expansive system that leads to our record of 40 goals in all competitions this season, best in the PL and conceding only 15, best in the PL, something I have not seen before in my years of watching football. Keep the posts coming, boys!


11.) 23 Nov 2016 01:04:40
Not much to add apart from spot on Hamilton mate I share your views and you make more sense then I do getting them across haha! - niceone mate always enjoy reading your opinions!


12.) 23 Nov 2016 01:38:17
Where do you get your stats from Hamilton? And Liverpool have only scored 3 goals more than Chelsea btw.


13.) 23 Nov 2016 17:42:05
You are correct, Fuser. I may have said that we scored 5 more than Chelsea but that was an error on my part.


14.) 23 Nov 2016 17:42:54
Thank you, LFC16. I ready yours as well and they are always well-thought out.


 

 

20 Oct 2016 10:24:12
This is the kind of fixture i fear most these days . West brom home.

I hope we can get the 3 points

everyone is saying next 8 fixture are easy but we could really screw up on some of those too with the expectation to win against organized tight defenses

On a separate note. Man city 4 without win and 4 nil to barca. fallen of there high horse have they?

PakRed

1.) 20 Oct 2016 10:42:19
Let's be honest no game is easy in the premier league, I think we'll beat West Brom but it won't be easy, I think we can beat every single one of the next 8 fixtures but there will be slip ups no doubt. Just got to focus on one game at a time.

Great to see Barcelona destroy city last night, guardiola who?


2.) 20 Oct 2016 13:53:07
Why was it great to see Barcelona destroy City? City are leading our league right now, it highlights just how big the gap between the best of our league and the best of the Spanish league is.


3.) 20 Oct 2016 14:30:00
Yeah alright hjikle.


4.) 20 Oct 2016 16:14:39
West Brom are going to be very hard nuts to crack so we should just go into the game ready to play from the first whistle. No more waiting till the second half to start playing, pls.


5.) 21 Oct 2016 11:06:56
City gifted the game to Barca.
It was even enough till they self combusted.


 

 

10 Oct 2016 13:14:01
Does anyone think Ings should be given a chance ahead of Origi?

He's training well scoring goals for reserves.

Perhaps a place on the bench and some minutes?

PakRed

1.) 10 Oct 2016 14:09:25
Not the game for it, but I think Ings should get his chance from the start against West Brom.


2.) 10 Oct 2016 14:42:15
Ings can be excellent, Origi to me is definately one for the future. Ings should start ahead of the lad, he's brilliant. Tbh I love Sturridge but both Ings and Origi should be ahead of him, but what do I know.


3.) 10 Oct 2016 15:17:53
I agree he deserves a shot but it's Sturridge for me vs Man Utd and give Ings a shot vs a team away from home where his hard work and chasing their defenders (like Firmino does) will be invaluable.


4.) 10 Oct 2016 16:02:48
If we play lower league team in efl, I will like to see ings origi sturridge all starting.


5.) 10 Oct 2016 16:18:22
And what has Ings done to start ahead of Origi, exactly? Scoring in the U-23 league? That`s it? The only reason Origi is not playing more is cause Firmino is doing the job. Ings is in the bottom of the pecking order even tho I like him as a player, that is still a fact that can be verified with your eyes so again, what has Ings done this season to play ahead of him?


6.) 10 Oct 2016 18:16:35
That's not the case Hamilton, it's about giving a young player who's grafted his way back from a very serious injury a chance to play some first team minutes.
He's scoring in the ressies and training hard. That's good enough for me.


7.) 10 Oct 2016 21:26:17
I feel sorry for Ings who is a good young striker, but has to compete with a supremely talented and slightly younger striker in Origi for a periphery role. Origi will play more than Sturridge within the year for me.


8.) 11 Oct 2016 02:11:51
For me, Ings would be better suited to a 2 up front scenario. Where we need a plan B.


9.) 10 Oct 2016 23:03:37
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

We've scored 24 goals - let's just keep doing what we're doing. Ings is doing well, but I wouldn't change a thing at the moment. He'll get his chance in due time.

Flanno hasn't played a minute at burnley . I'm know there can't be any written assurances but surely he went on loan to get games . why isn't he playing?

PakRed

1.) 03 Oct 2016 19:29:50
He played in the cup at the very start of the season, heres a quote from Dyche on Flanno from the 25 of Sept, looks like his injury troubles have followed him.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has told Clarets Player HD that he hopes to welcome injured duo Jon Flanagan and Ashley Barnes back into the first-team fold in the near future.

“[Jon] is getting there. He’s training with the group regularly now so he’s certainly in contention along with a number of others, ”.


2.) 04 Oct 2016 04:04:49
Good reply Imred - don't understand the disagree votes!

Looking at West Hams situation i am so happy we have expanded the stadium rather than building a new one.

Although it shouldn't be an excuse but in terms of atmosphere the pitch being so far away from the stands must have some impact.

PakRed

1.) 26 Sep 2016 17:03:05
We could never leave Anfield.

Its our spiritual home.


2.) 26 Sep 2016 19:24:57
Having been to a lot of West Ham games, and one this season, the problem with their atmosphere was immediately clear - several groups of known trouble makers have been split up with the new ticket allocation. With them broken up the crowd feels less aggressive and frankly that's all the atmosphere there ever was - thinly veiled aggression.

If there was indeed an initial bid of 25 million rejected and they had agreed personal terms with him then I say sell him and invest that money on a LB

You should be worried though.

6 games 17 goals 6 clean sheets, a system that works, players improving confidence and no Europe.

Although it is another soton player i feel van dijk is a really good defender and has potential to get better. he's on par with most of the defenders in the prem league on current form.

We haven't done too badly with other soton buys eiher. Lallana, Clyne, Mane have been excellent

Jury still out on Lovern tough.

Remember that goal he scored against Fulham in the 90th at nil nil? 08/ 09

We almost won the title that year if not for spurs to give up a 2 nil lead and that macheda goal.

Not as painful as 13/ 14 though.

Saying all that i would gladly just take 1 nil or 2 1 today. People don't realise this is a tough game with Watford unbeaten in 4 and 3 consecutive clean sheets.

We should not have expectations of sweeping them aside 4 nil. It will be hard to get a result today.
