Cheers Ed, don't suppose you have a copy, I didn't save it and can't see in under my profile.

{Ed002's Note - Sure, just send in a post for me on the European pages and I will paste it in for you.}

Merry Xmas eds and reds. Hope you all have a great time with whomever you spend it with.
On a side note I want to thabe LFC for the early xmas present of being real title contenders at Xmas time. I would have happily settled for top 4 this season so to see how far we've come in such a short time unsee Klopp really gives me hope for the future.
Merry Xmas all.


{Ed002's Note - The Eds and Liverpool thabe you for you kind words.}

I've seen lots of posts recently regarding our goalkeeping situation. For me the first thing we need to do is get rid of Achterberg and bring in a new coach. Reina was arguably the second best keeper in the league, then in comes Achterberg and his form is horrendous for 2 seasons. Mignolet is by no means a grwat keeper but surely he should have shown some improvement, he is making the same mistake everyone, which to me shows that the coaches are not actually improving the mental side if his game. So step one has to be change of coach.
If we decide to by in the summer I would look to the Bundesliga. (Watch it a bit on BT) I know there's talk in the press of Ter Stegen, but for me 20mil is a risk there are keepers with just as much potential but who would cost a lot less. Personally I'm pleased we are linked with Karius, it might just be the Klopp-Mainz link but if it is genuine interest then I'd be happy as he has impressed this season. I would also look at Horn as a potential signing. Then there's keepers like Zeiler, Baumann and Leno (but apparently Real are interested in him) . Any of these would be a vast improvement on what we have.


1.) 13 Feb 2016 11:17:49
Totally agree popa, both karius and horn would cost at least half of ter stegen pethaps a little more.

2.) 13 Feb 2016 12:32:06
Does anyone know who is regarded as a top keeping coach that could be available?

3.) 13 Feb 2016 12:40:10
Love these posts not just ed who we getting ed what's gods name eds eds eds it's actually a good call claiming a new coach. Not a fan of mig but yeah he should have improved just never did so totally agree.

4.) 13 Feb 2016 14:51:33
I have to agree- there's no point buying a new young keeper if the gk coach is not going to improve him- and achterberg hasn't improved any of the keepers at lpool.
Interesting that ward hit good form after going out on loan- ie away from achterberg.
To us amateurs it appears obvious that the gk coach is not producing results, but is actually making the keepers worse- so why don't the club see things the same way?

5.) 13 Feb 2016 15:23:09
perhaps we could make a banner! anonymush, joking aside you're spot on mate, we need a proper shake up in the goalkeeping department, achterberg was an average keeper himself so he has not got the credentials required to be coaching Liverpool fc goalkeepers. the results speak for themselves.

6.) 13 Feb 2016 15:23:06
Hi Ed001

As a fan in his twenties with admittedly no in depth knowledge on goalkeepers of a previous era other than YouTube and old videos when I was younger I still have to question why you reckon goalies and defenders are much worse these days? I mean if you look back at the results of fixtures in the 70s you see games that are won 7-2 and 8-4 and all of these ridiculous scorelines. Surely that indicates that they couldn't of been that much better defensively? Or was it due to lack of tactics etc.? I mean I see clips of people like Barnes and all these great dribbles of the ball and take nothing away from them cause they were amazing but in a lot of clips you barely see a defender even throw in a tackle they just let them glide by like nothing. I don't know it's hard to doubt the level of quality was different between now and then without being around but I guess what I'm mostly interested in is what in your opinion what was it that caused such huge scorelines which we don't see as often today?

Thanks for the thread. Really interesting read.

{Ed001's Note - tactics is the main thing, players are not given the freedom they were, they are held in rigid systems. When you see big scores there is always a breakdown in the system that results in it. Plus it helps playing on better pitches, so many goals were the result of bobbly pitches that you can probably rule out a large proportion because of that. Mainly though it is a more defensive system mindset. Teams play with more defensive players than in the past. Even now they have gone more attacking with the fullbacks, everyone puts a defensive midfielder in to cover any gaps. There is also the problem of the modern defender having to cope with rule changes making it much more difficult to use physical tactics to defend. You used to be able to kick an attacker until he could barely run.}

Errm Barcelona/ RM cricket scores lately in Spain . BM in Germany .
The gulf in class between top and bottom in the prem has obviously closed, in Spain, France and Germany it persists.
It's not a isolated season it's going to get messy -stoke, WH, Leicester and others are shaking up the mighty Quo
Big 4 is now about 8 strong.

Been reading a fair few posts recently that are either flat questioning Klopp's ability or having sly or thinly veiled digs at him. Are we seriously already having a pop at a manager most of the top teams in Europe would love to have? No wonder are reputation as fans has nosedived.
I for one am still buzzing that every match day I see Klopp in our dug out. He has inherited an unbalanced squad of average players mixed with youngsters who need to develop. He is trying to totally change the way we play and the way we train without a preseason. The players aren't fit enough to press in the manner he likes again he is trying to improve fitness without a preseason.
He has already been able to show glimpses of how a Klopp Liverpool can play. Let's give him this season to settle and assess the squad, then he will have a preseason to fully implement his methods and recruit players that suit. I am excited for next season and I really believe Rodgers left our club in a worse mess than out realise. It was never going to be a quick fix post Rodgers and I think that is partly what attracted Klopp to begin with, the project of getting us back on top.
Can we please all just agree this season would a success with a trophy in the cabinet and nothing more, we will not get top 4 because we do not have top 4 players. Let's be happy and excited about Klopp and our future under him, the constant pessimism on this site can be draining at times.


1.) 20 Jan 2016 11:43:06
Popa, it's more that people are now in a position to comment on his actions rather than his reputation. I think everyone's happy with him but up until this point he's been some mythical figure that will improve us simply by deigning us with his presence.

We're now at the stage where we can't absolve him of responsibility. Caulker and Migs are strange choices that are on his head and that goes for Long if he comes in. We can't blame Rodgers, the TC, the owners or the scouts. These are all things that Klopp's agreed to.

No matter what happens no one's going to be calling for his head this summer. but come next season it's time for him to demonstrate why his reputation's so good.

Is it just me or are BT Sport actively trying to rival I TV for the worst football commentary. Trevor Francis has not managed and team in 12 years yet we were subjected to his inane babble about how Liverpool clearly hadn't worked on their shape or tactics WTF. Turned the sound off after 15 mins and enjoyed the game much more.


1.) 02 Nov 2015 08:20:08
Five minutes in he suggested Klopp should be bringing on Benteke, shows why he hasn't managed for years. I think he is still bitter we beat his Brum side in the League Cup back in 2001.

2.) 02 Nov 2015 08:23:18
Yes mate I was exactly the same. They haven't got a clue.

3.) 02 Nov 2015 08:53:35
I actually think ITV coverage with Tyldesley and Townsend wasn't that bad - its their half time/post match which was pretty rubbish. BT are far worse and it is really annoying that they have now taken from ITV not only the Champions League but also the Europa League (used to be in ITV4). With Sky sport I can at least go to my local gym they have Sky sport but not BT, so a good opportunity to combine running with watching some football. With Bt its either the pub or streaming and for some reason when it is sky sport it is easier to find a streaming in relatively ok quality compared to BT.

4.) 02 Nov 2015 12:55:11
Coverage is awful in general guys. I hate watching football on bt sports. Worst commentary team around. Clueless and so mono tone! Owen for me is the worst. real shame they got so many games! On the other hand I loved the game! Still smiling about it today and I work with two Chelsea fans!

5.) 02 Nov 2015 18:24:05
Im not sure which channel it is, he usually covers la liga games, the Geordie bloke! All commentators should be like that.

my favourite piece of commentary is the gerrard goal. WHAT A HIT SON!

Surely Firmino is our first choice striker. I'm basing this on the fact that when fit he starts as our striker. Hence being first choice.
So not sure where the idea that we don't have a first choice striker comes from.

I thought Bozo Texino was Ken Aguero's agent.

Being nasty on the pitch is one thing. Being an utterly despicable human being is another. He's been fined and forced to remove a chapter from his autobiography because of what he said about his own club. Would you want that negativity for us? He stole a teammates wife, great for team harmony.
Why not get Terry signed up too, if being a class one prick seems to be part of the recruitment process now.
Icardi is more trouble than he's worth.

I resisted the sell Sturridge line of thinking for ages. But now I think it's the only realistic option.
He's not looked the same player this season. He doesn't seem to want to try and use that explosive pace he has over the first 10 yards. This could be mental, as he's afraid of getting injured again. Or he physically isn't capable of it anymore.
Either way with the style we employ Sturridge just doesn't fit anymore. He needs chances handed to him on a plate otherwise it's like playing with 10 men as the few games I've seen him play he has offered nothing.
The constant niggles annoy me too. No player is ever 100% fit every match. Henderson has that foot problem that can't be cured only managed, yet is one of our most important players. If Sturridge isn't willing to play at 80 or 90% then sell up.

Got to disagree, he did replace Migs in goal, he brought in Karius to be the number 1 keeper. However, after only a handful of games he was forced to take him out the firing line because pundits and fans decided he shouldn't be given time to adjust to a new country and new league. Clearly if you can't adjust instantly and be world class at the age of 23 then you are crap and shouldn't be playing.
Yes Klopp deserves criticism and has himself pointed out that even his future is on the line (therefore fully aware of his part in the decline) . However, surely criticism should be constructive rather than just a rant about mistakes, some of which have no foundation. Yes we need to improve the squad, but how do you know Klopp didn't go all out to sign a left back but due to circumstances the only viable options were no better than what we already have?
I'm getting sick to death of fans bleating on about the same old stuff. 'Didn't sign a left back' no we didn't get over it, let's see what happens in the summer, maybe Juanma will be given a chance in the summer after another year of development, maybe Arnold will replace Clyne.
'Didn't replace Migs' - yes he did but the replace was not given time or support by his own fans (which is disgraceful in my book) . I know it's been said a lot but look at DeGea, woeful first season, now world class.
I know let's sack Klopp, Hodgson is free let's get him in before Leicester do (Sarcasm for those who couldn't tell) .

To be honest it's not just football, it seems to be endemic across society. I'm a lecturer and I've seen a huge ruse in the number of students who just assume they will get good grades without putting effort in. Or they tell me they need such and such a grade in order to achieve an overall whatever, with the expectation that I will give it them. For me the younger generations have a culture of entitlement rather than the meritocracy I grew up with.


{Ed001's Note - very much so. Entitlement is rife.}
