I know Diego Laxalt was mentioned as a possible left sided player (LB/ LM), but is there any sign of revisiting Julian Brandt as a left midfield option (instead of LW)?

RazorSharp

{Ed002's Note - I wouldn’t think Liverpool willlook to buy him and then pay him out of position on the odd occasions he is required. If Salah or Mane were to leave perhaps.}


1.) 31 Dec 2018 18:38:17
OK I thought he played LM as well.

Anyway Ed2 thank you very much for all your hard work and info in 2018. I hope 2019 brings you much joy peace and health. Happy New Year. YNWA.

{Ed002's Note - Julian Brandt is an out and out attacking LW.}


2.) 31 Dec 2018 23:42:48
I’m not saying we are going to get brandt, but why do we have to sell to buy? City have mahrez aguero sterling Jesus sane and silva who all play in the front three positions. We have salah mane Firmino Shaqiri and Sturridge who are first team. When city signed mahrez we didn’t say well who is leaving then? Shaqiri plays in the middle a lot anyway, we don’t have natural pace as an option on the wing, if mane and salah wasn’t available.


3.) 01 Jan 2019 00:34:51
Doesn’t really matter who city has. We are well stocked up top.


4.) 01 Jan 2019 03:04:41
We’re fine but not massively stocked upfront IMO. A long term injury to either Mane or Salah and we’ll be putting a lot of strain on Shaqiri as there’s no one else able to provide pace and goals from out wide (especially with the Ox injured) .


 

 

07 Jun 2017 19:43:33
The only consolation I can see from this is that we haven't spent 100 million on 2 players who were not in our original plan. Now let's start again. Hopefully we can go back in for Mendy and Keita.

RazorSharp

{Ed025's Note - they will cost £100m razor.. :)


1.) 08 Jun 2017 00:59:47
£100m yes, but both 1st choice targets. Throw in Salah and a RB and I am thrilled. Sell the players who don't have a future with the club and I call that a great transfer window.

Question for Ed01 would Saturdays result affect your choice for line up tomorrow?

RazorSharp

{Ed001's Note - my choice? No. But I would have gone full strength anyway.}


1.) 02 Mar 2020 16:51:59
I really hope Klopp begins to rest a few more players in the league now that we don’t have to worry about a draw or a loss here or there. I also hope he recognises how demoralising losing 3 games in a row would be and that we need to get some momentum going again. We’re still in play for the treble and if he puts out a weak team tomorrow and we lose for the third game in a row the groans will be very loud indeed. Obviously he is a champions league winning manager and knows far more about what the team needs right now than I. I just hope he can see what we can all see and doesn’t try and be too clever. We need a win, we need momentum, we need to try and win every trophy available to us, you cannot choose in the middle of a hump to put out a weak team. Switch it up a little but don’t go dropping all of the front 3 or playing Lallana in a 6 up against Kante or anything stupid like that.


2.) 02 Mar 2020 17:03:56
Ed I was thinking it will be a much changed squad again with the fringe players coming in along with youngsters? Or do you think he will actually go full strength?

{Ed001's Note - I think he will go with a younger squad, but I would prefer him to go all in.}


3.) 02 Mar 2020 17:11:59
Won’t be 3 in a row mate. Would be 3 out of last 4. We beat West Ham in between. Some damming stats coming out against Watford. Didn’t have a single shot on target which makes that twice that’s happens out of our last 3 games. Hopefully pressure off tomoz night v Chelsea and we see some free flowing football again and players playing with a smile on their faces.

{Ed001's Note - why do people keep mentioning these nonsense stats of shots on target? That just means our shooting was crap, not that we have not created anything.}


4.) 02 Mar 2020 18:03:21
Didn’t say anything about us not creating anything Ed. Just said that it’s the 2nd game out of 3 that we hadn’t had a shot on target. Not really sure why there is an issue with me saying that in my own comment. Thought this was a chat site for people to air opinions.

{Ed001's Note - not sure why you think I can't criticise a pointless stat being used either? Or are you too special for anyone to point out any difference of opinion to you? Perhaps you think I am not allowed an opinion and only you are? Only, in case you haven't noticed, I never stopped you giving an opinion did I?}


5.) 02 Mar 2020 18:18:14
I Imagine the line up will be a mix of youth and experience.

so i imagine the like of Lallana and Milner alongside Elliot and Jones.

I can't see Chelsea going all in either, id imagine they would have a similar line up.


6.) 02 Mar 2020 18:24:34
Fair point Ed. I’m far from special mate. You might think it’s a pointless stat I thought it was pointless. As they say though Opinions are like arseholes, everyone has one. Not having a go or anything. Love this site and the work all you and the Ed’s do. I’ll just go back to reading others comments. Keep up the good work this really is a top class site.

{Ed001's Note - I do think it is pointless in the context you used it. It is the same with the assists stat, utterly pointless. They annoy me to be honest because people seem to think they mean something on their own, when they don't really. It is all about context.

If we had no shots on goal, then that is a worry, but not getting them on target is not really of any value. How many times did good balls get put in but we failed to get on the end of them? More of an issue for me is shot selection, such as when Virgil hit one from 40 yards. Why do that? There were much better options. We had created plenty of space wide at times and used it poorly. The issue is we are not making the most of our chances, rather than we are not making them.

That shot on target stat suggest we are not even making chances, which is incorrect. We got in dangerous areas plenty of times against Watford, which is why we got so many corners. Sometimes the ball breaks your way and it ends up in the back of the net. Sometimes it doesn't and a defender clears it. They were getting to all the breaks, which is another reason why the stat is so skewed.

At the end of the day, we were poor, we didn't put up the fight we normally do, but we still totally dominated the ball and created opportunities. Watford just did well and got themselves in the way of everything, plus had the rub of the green and the decisions given in their favour. It was bound to happen at some point, no team can win all the time, or play well every week. At some point someone was always going to beat us. The key is about how the team reacts.}


7.) 02 Mar 2020 18:43:19
I think Klopp will field the same team that started the first game against shrewsbury . I do think Lampard will go for a stronger team . FA cup is the only thing left for them to play for.


8.) 02 Mar 2020 19:42:58
I fully agree with you, Ed. Watford played well and deserved their win, no doubt. What however, does my head in is how many of our fans (prolly not helped by the media propaganda around the result), are just over-reacting and over thinking things to the point of the utter ridiculous.

We can all be pissed that we lost a game and we did not perform well at all and that much was clear. The media just pumped the whole thing up as if us losing our first game of the season in the PL (the first in 45 and the second in 66 PL games) was us and our title hopes unraveling and some of our fans are buying this nonsense. We lost a game. Big freaking deal.

I don't know about stats, never believed in them esp. in football and I don't care one bit about them. The "stat" we need to be worried about is our dip in performance, energy levels and decision-making in critical areas. Those are the areas we are struggling at the most, IMO and that is what needs to change. We need to make better decisions and play better before we can even hope of scoring a goal.

{Ed001's Note - the problem is that there are just not enough recurrences of any action in football for stats to be relevant. That is why we get so many one-season wonders, they can't sustain it because they just had a blip.}


9.) 02 Mar 2020 20:15:35
We have lost rhythm since the break I don't think we are tired we just need a good performance to back on track. We will go stronger than we have done in previous rounds. Elliot is away with the under 19's. Fab's needs games as does Mane. Williams should come in for Trent.

I hope/ think it will be a much stronger side than people are expecting and we will win. I will take a guess

Allison
Williams
Gomez
Lovren/ Matip
Milner
Fabs
Lallana
Jones
Mane
Salah
Origi/ Minamino.


10.) 02 Mar 2020 20:17:08
Ed001 cheers for the reply and you make some good points. I get the assist stat as well. The only difference between an assist and a chance created is the actual finish. An assist could be a no hope ball into the box that is finished well compared to someone beating a few Men laying it on a plate and then the finish is poor and missing the target or being saved. The concern for me is that with the quality of our front 3 they have not got a shot on target in 180 mins of football. I’m not pissed off with the result or annoyed and throwing toys out of the pram. Watford deserved the result and I look forward to tomoz game like I said earlier hopefully the team play with a smile on their faces again. Especially front 3. They always play better when their smiling.

Red Meister no shock you’re agreeing with the Ed’s. You’d agree if they said the sky was pink.

{Ed001's Note - all players go through lean spells, I am more worried that the huge lead in the Prem has made the players mentally lose focus. It is human nature to relax when miles ahead and then it is difficult to get going again for certain matches in between those.}


11.) 02 Mar 2020 23:22:22
Like the tortoise and the hare Ed? Although I'm sure we'll bounce back, starting tomorrow and hopefully a strong side, like Adrian with mainly first team/ fringe players and maybe the odd youngster, like Williams at RB!

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, that's exactly what the fable was about. Aesop knew his stuff!}


12.) 03 Mar 2020 02:37:40
Just 4 games from final. send a good team and a give a proper go. youngsters can also get experience I premier league once we win it.


 

 

24 Feb 2020 15:58:42
Does anyone think Saka (Arsenal) would be a good addition to our team? He could be a good LB cover as well as fill a left sided midfield spot. Any thoughts?

RazorSharp

1.) 24 Feb 2020 16:20:09
Liverpool have plenty of young LB's coming through, I'd give them a shot before Saka. The guy is hugely impressive (other than having an off game Sunday) problem is he's surely got to be expensive.


2.) 24 Feb 2020 16:46:19
We need to be giving the likes of Elliot and Jones game time. That’s what arsenal have done for Saka, we should follow suit.

We’re never going to be able to buy a direct rivals young 1st teamers without absolutely getting our pants pulled down on price.

Looks a talent though.


3.) 24 Feb 2020 19:00:31
OP, so he can block the path of Elliot, Jones and the other lads currently training w/ the first team and getting valuable minutes in league and FA Cup games? Sorry, a non starter, IMO.


4.) 24 Feb 2020 20:31:51
good cover, but not needed. so not a good addition.

{Ed047's Note - not available so jog off! 🤣🤣😉


5.) 24 Feb 2020 22:10:59
Since when does Saka play same position as Elliot and Jones? How would a LB / LW compete with a CM and RW?


6.) 25 Feb 2020 02:47:05
haha 47, keep him and hopefully he helps your lot take points off City for our future title challenges. . . haha.

{Ed047's Note - 🤣 will do mate. 👍🏼


7.) 25 Feb 2020 08:12:02
Shaq Attack arsenal can give young players like that plenty of game time because a lot of there senior players have been awful. And then they play in the Europa league where young players all ways get a chance.


8.) 25 Feb 2020 12:16:24
not impressed by saka at all. his defense sense is probably the worst in premier league.


9.) 25 Feb 2020 20:21:43
Razor, Saka is NOT a LB. He is only playing there cos Arsenal are short in that area. Saka is an attacking mid from either the inside left or on the left side. Curtis Jones plays the exact position (inside left) as Saka and Elliot can play there as well even tho he plays on the right.

Saka is not better than either of those lads, IMO so again, why would we b interested in a player who a) is not better than our young lads and b) is not even a full time starter for Arsenal and c) would come here to block the path of our lads? I await your response.


 

 

07 Feb 2020 10:01:05
Which front 3 would you prefer?

A. Fowler Suarez Torres

B. Barnes Owen Rush

C Mané Firmino Salah.

RazorSharp

1.) 07 Feb 2020 11:04:29
Our current front 3 because there’s no debate about whether they work as a unit. The pace and trickery is devastating too.


2.) 07 Feb 2020 11:07:23
It's tight but going for option C.


3.) 07 Feb 2020 11:21:34
A. awesome. Fowler the best of the 3.


4.) 07 Feb 2020 11:37:18
Assuming the rest of the team and manager is the same as now, I would say C, no contest. (Suarez is obviously not worthy to be in this team, and I have a much lighter but similar distaste for Owen. )

I think Barnes could replace Mané or Salah. Rush or Daglish could replace Firmino. Etc. Considering everything, Me myself could possibly replace Salah and we’d still have a good shot and winning stuff. But the trio as it is, is nothing short of fantastic, and long may it continue.

Previously, it made kind of sense in “what player/ -s would be needed for us to dream? ” Now - we don’t need to drastically change anything. I’m in dreamland already.


5.) 07 Feb 2020 11:41:15
C is the only option that I can see working to be honest.


6.) 07 Feb 2020 11:44:04
Barnes, Fowler, Mane would fit together well IMO.


7.) 07 Feb 2020 12:20:36
If you're mixing it up I would take barnes rush and Mane. Otherwise its option C as you know it works and they compliment each other.


8.) 07 Feb 2020 12:34:44
Fowler mane prime Torres for me. Minimum 50 league goals right there.


9.) 07 Feb 2020 12:39:36
Meijer, Dundee, Lambert.


10.) 07 Feb 2020 13:15:34
Good question!

Defo fowler, torres and suarez. What a front 3! Saying that you have 2 CFs in there. Would it work? Yes suarez can play out wide but would you be losing some of fowlers goal scoring threat if he played out wide. I suppose torres in the middle.

But its pretty close with our current front 3.

What does that say that we're disregarding Barnes rush and Owen. But it wouldn't wofk. Too many right feet.


11.) 07 Feb 2020 14:50:15
I'd of usually said A. Why? Because fowler is part of it but so is that tool Suarez so I'll go for C.


12.) 07 Feb 2020 15:11:52
A wow
B wow
C wow

Would have to go for A with Fowler and Suarez both great at scoring goals out of nothing.
Cant believe i left Rushy and KK out.


13.) 07 Feb 2020 15:42:11
Barnes rush Beardsley?


14.) 07 Feb 2020 17:41:52
Firmino, torres, Suarez for me. You couldn't leave firmino out of any line up, he makes everything work and the devastating pace, power, skill and goal scoring of ability of torres and suarez would be devastating.

I am only talking about footballing ability though because suarez would need a big personality transplant before he could be considered. I despise the man, but what an amazing footballer he was!


15.) 07 Feb 2020 17:41:52
Barnes, Suarez and Fowler looks good.


16.) 07 Feb 2020 18:19:13
Barnes Rush KK

Now that combo would be hard to better.

A, B and C all brilliant in their own way.


17.) 07 Feb 2020 19:23:50
Barnes, Beardsley, Aldo
Mane, Bobby, salah.


18.) 07 Feb 2020 21:31:38
How about prime Sturridge, Suarez, Sterling? I know. Blasphemous. got to be our current front three as it's the only one that actually existed. I will kindly mention that I'm only a Liverpool fan because Owen existed when I was a kid. Had me a pair of Umbros here in the States. Gerrard made me a fan for life. And Fernando Torres Liverpool's number 9. Absolutely gutted when he was sold to Chelski!


19.) 07 Feb 2020 22:28:59
That would be another phenomenal front 3 amerigo. And next to option c the only one that would really work. With a l ft winger/ forward, r ft winger/ forward and a creative CF.

I their prime, very good.


20.) 07 Feb 2020 23:12:25
It has to be A. Just in their goal scoring ability alone. Each one can break a defense down alone but as a trio they would be unstoppable. Could you imagine those 3 up front at the moment each one would have 20 each per season on play alone, but we will have to stick with our trio at the moment until mbappe, messi and Ronaldo become available.


21.) 07 Feb 2020 23:26:50
It's funny how little salah is mentioned. The guy has out scored them all.


22.) 09 Feb 2020 21:28:49
Id love to see Barnes play nowadays. he would tear teams apart even more than he did back then.

RazorSharp

1.) 29 Jul 2019 17:12:00
He's still injured.


2.) 29 Jul 2019 17:34:09
He’ll be out for a few months I believe.

{Ed0333's Note - I think he’s done his ACL so touch and go for the opener against Norwich


 

 

30 May 2019 23:43:49
I reckon the difference on Saturday could come down to the goalkeepers. I really reckon Lloris is dodgy and he has a mistake in him. I remember he let in a howler in the world Cup final. I think if he's under pressure he's likely to flap which will cause panic at the back.

RazorSharp

1.) 31 May 2019 06:44:11
Hugo Lloris has been steadily declining for a while now. With Spurs's defence nowhere near what it once was, it's not helped his cause either. I'd like to see Bobby put him under pressure and force errors from him because we'd most probably get them.


2.) 31 May 2019 07:56:35
Touch wood!


3.) 31 May 2019 09:19:17
And u haven’t seen Becker make a few clangers? all want is a Liverpool win! But stop with the dissing and doubting of spurs it’s probably the 1st time all season they’ve a full fit squad and they will be up for this no doubt!


4.) 31 May 2019 10:11:51
There is a big difference between alisson and lloris. Becker faults have mainly been due to overconfidence and being laid back. But it's his first season and he's eliminating that from his game. Whereas this has been a part of lloris game for years. Its not dissing anyone it's simply pointing out something even the spurs fans will tell you.


5.) 31 May 2019 14:14:29
Lloris in the past two seasons just like DDG, have made more mistakes than any other GK in the top 6. Allison is right now the better GK no doubt BUT he too has a glaring fault in always trying to pick the right pass at times instead of just booting it up-field if there is no outlet available.

I also feel the outfield players pass the ball to him WAY too much which is not good cos he is currently being put under constant pressure by the opposing attackers hence, it could lead to mistakes. Either way, AB is boss and will make a massive diff. for us tmrw.

Having said all of this, Jay Dub Red I don't think anyone is having a go at Spurs esp. on the GK debate. AB is the better GK BUT that does not mean that Spurs will not be a tough nut to crack. In fact, they will be VERY difficult to be honest cos IMO, both teams are a mirror image of each other in terms of intensity, tactics and their ability to press high. I do believe we have the better team overall BUT that proves nothing going into a CL final. Hopefully, we can overcome and bring Ol' Big Ears back to Liverpool, where it belongs.

Thanks Ed. I hear he's quite a versatile player too. But with Robbo doing so well he'd probably not be tempted.
