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.

ED1 do you think Ruben Névés could do the role Fekir was being considered for, or is he more defensively minded?

RazorSharp

{Ed001's Note - he plays much deeper, he would be a Fabinho alternative if anything.}


1.) 30 Oct 2018 17:30:49
I see thanks.


2.) 30 Oct 2018 17:39:05
I would bloody love to see the lad at our club but as Ed has said, we have Fabinho so there's no room for him really, he'll end up somewhere big next season no doubt, Wolves is and always was just a stepping stone for him.


3.) 30 Oct 2018 18:16:46
I’m in agreement with you Salah. Definitely using wolves as a stepping stone, he’s a class act and I can honestly see him going to city. Definitely wouldn’t say no to Hinckley though.


4.) 30 Oct 2018 19:00:44
Neves is the real deal. he strikes a ball with as much precision as Gerrard with the short/ long rage passing of Xabi Alonso. He would be perfect for the DLP/ DM role esp. with a double pivot which he currently plays with a fellow good passer in Moutinho. Alas, I can only dream.


5.) 30 Oct 2018 20:38:07
Wolves owners consider Wolves to be big. They have aspirations to be the biggest club in England in a few years. Allusions of grandeur, we will see.


6.) 30 Oct 2018 23:41:25
Could possibly be a Wijnaldum replacement though if klopp sticks to playing a double 6?


7.) 31 Oct 2018 04:11:28
I think he will stay at wolves and I think they will be a big club. They always have been but I also think they will hit Everton level and realise how hard it is. Mind you look at city. I feel more threatened by wolves than I do by utd at this present moment. Feels good to say that but it's true. Great little player and an impressive team.


8.) 31 Oct 2018 05:32:15
I've only seen Neves a few times. From what I've seen I feel he could with our system and style. As other have said and I'm sure ed2 is thinking - "he'd be a good signing to replace Fabinho". lol

Long season and imo between hendo, lallana, milner and to an extent gini too, I would have thought we'll be wanting to replenish the midfield stock over the next season or 2 anyways.


9.) 31 Oct 2018 07:24:18
He’s had 10 games in the PL, same for Wolves - let’s see how he’s doing if he’s still in the PL with big club Wolves this time next season.


10.) 31 Oct 2018 18:47:35
Wolves certainly aren't getting relegated.


11.) 31 Oct 2018 19:38:33
Ron, Ruben Neves was a gem at Porto as well and he was HIGHLY rated way before he came to Wolves and he has only enhanced his reputation for the as you say, 10 games he's played.


12.) 31 Oct 2018 20:14:13
We bought Andy Carroll after half a season in the premier league.
I’m sorry but I don’t rate the Portuguese league, bit like paying for PSG in France.


13.) 02 Nov 2018 11:05:52
Ron, your post lacks context. First off, the Andy Carroll comparison is just senseless. Neves did not play half a season in Portugal (he played up to two years there) so that comparison lacks any type of context. Also, You may NOT rate a league BUT that does not mean there are NO good players in there. That is just another insane and illogical thing to say.

VVD came from the rubbish Scottish League and so did Stylian Petrov. Kante came from the useless Ligue 1 as did Mendy, Mbappe and a certain Nabil Fekir had we signed him. David Luiz, came from the Portuguese league you claim not to rate. Man, I can keep going but I will just stop there as I don't want to embarrass you with enough examples to fill two pages. Cheers, mate.


 

 

24 Oct 2018 23:31:02
I just hope they don't sack Tuchel before we play PSG again.

RazorSharp

1.) 25 Oct 2018 11:21:13
Wenger is available so.


2.) 25 Oct 2018 12:15:51
that would be perfect aoe.


3.) 25 Oct 2018 19:36:26
How PSG went for someone that incompetent in a bid to win the CL, is beyond me.


 

 

24 Oct 2018 18:15:30
Evening Ed1 if you have time I'd be interested in your view of Phil Thompson as player and captain (also in comparison to who he succeeded and preceded as captain) . Thanks.

RazorSharp

{Ed001's Note - I have to be honest he was before my time in that respect. I remember him better from his shop in Kirkby and then later as assistant to Ged, rather than as player and captain. He does genuinely love the club, I know that much. He was a fan who lived the dream of captaining the team he loved to glory.}


1.) 24 Oct 2018 19:01:16
Cheers anyway Ed. Enjoy the match 👍.

{Ed001's Note - thanks mate, let's hope we all enjoy it!}


2.) 24 Oct 2018 19:41:55
I love Phil Thompsons passion for the club but, like Souness, i can’t say i agree with a lot of the things he says as a pundit. Having said that, if i was forced to sit in the company of Le Tissier, Nicholas and worst of all, Merson, then i imagine my IQ would decline at a rate of knots as well.


3.) 24 Oct 2018 20:02:46
I bought my grandad a legend's tour of Anfield a few years ago (admittedly gaining a free lift to Liverpool myself 😏), Phil Thompson was the legend.

I have to agree with Ed001 in that he does genuinely love the club, and he's literally one of the funniest guys I've met! He was also way before my time, but my grandad holds him in very high regard!


4.) 24 Oct 2018 22:55:55
Agree Anonymous, clearly loves the club, but I cringe sometimes at his comments, they can seem a bit naive for someone of his experience.
I did have the pleasure of watching him play a number of times. His passion for the club off the field was also matched on it.


 

 

24 Sep 2018 07:25:35
Ed1 do you know if Bob Paisley was ever considered for or offered the England managers role? And was Bill Shankley offered any other role after retirement?

RazorSharp

{Ed001's Note - I don't know about Paisley being considered for or offered the England job. I know he was in the running for the Ireland job once but he was still working at Liverpool even after he retired, as an advisor, so he was never really all that keen about other jobs.

Shanks was not offered another role with us no. LFC wanted to avoid the problem Man Utd had when Busby retired, as his presence around the club hindered them for years. Every other manager was operating under his shadow. The same could have been said about Fergie, but his illness has meant no players or fans will ever expect him to return.

Unless you mean other management jobs elsewhere? In which case Shanks got lots of offers but he was settled in Liverpool and was not interested in stepping down to a lesser club really.}


1.) 24 Sep 2018 08:07:33
I think that Shankly may have liked the Scotland job after he left Liverpool?
They had some top players around that time, probably the strongest of the home nations.
They qualified for the 74 World Cup under Willie Ormond and 78 WC with Ally MacLeod, but Shankly would surely have had them breathing fire.
Who knows what they would have achieved?


2.) 24 Sep 2018 10:29:21
Thanks Ed. From the little I know of him I wonder if Paisley would have wanted the limelight and fuss that goes with an international job. I à look also think in the 70s the FA wanted a man in their mould rather than the best (hence Clough not getting the job either) . Either way I'm glad they both stayed.

{Ed001's Note - Paisley was devoted to Liverpool, he had to be convinced to show interest in Ireland.}


3.) 24 Sep 2018 11:01:57
While we're reminiscing I got a book of Amazon last week it's by Peter hooton of the farm it's called "when football was football" a history of LFC 1892 to 1992 fabulous pics and BIOS and some great legends pieces only a fiver.


4.) 24 Sep 2018 13:26:01
If my memory serves me right Shanks was asked by the club to stay away from the training ground as he was spending to much of his spare time there. He was very hurt by this request as you would expect. He felt the club was turning it's back on him after all he had achieved there.

{Ed001's Note - he was asked because the players were getting confused and would call him boss etc. It was the only way the club could move forward. He ended up, ironically, spending a fair bit of time at Everton during his retirement.}


5.) 24 Sep 2018 15:43:34
I remember seeing a brilliant interview with Bobby Charlton about Shanks. The basics of it is still up at the club's site -

goo.gl/NHZJ89


6.) 24 Sep 2018 14:32:08
Thanks Ed001. I love watching old clips of Shanks. Hairs stand to attention on the back of my neck when he speaks. I presume from what he achieved the same happened to the players when he gave his pre game speech.

{Ed001's Note - he had an aura. Some people just command a room merely by walking in. Shanks did that.}

I know it was just bad rumours going round before, but does anyone have any thoughts on Rabiot now we've seen him a bit closer up?

RazorSharp

1.) 20 Sep 2018 14:05:17
A bit of a funny haircut but a decent enough looking bloke.


2.) 20 Sep 2018 15:26:04
He played quite well, used the ball nicely on the few ocassions when psg managed a spell of posession. Clearly right now Hendo, Milner, and Gini have responded to the new competition in midfield so we have 5 capable cms. However he Rabiot would be a good addition for the long term.


3.) 20 Sep 2018 16:33:31
I'd say 6 capable cms. Lallana isn't finished yet.

{Ed002's Note - I thought I had dealt with all of the Rabiot stuff over and over already?}


4.) 20 Sep 2018 17:03:50
I didn't even know we were interested in rabiot? He is a good player but better than our boys? I don't think so.

Has Adam lallana made any match day squads yet this season? For one who showed so much promise it's sad yo look at his career today. Dropped from the England squad and dropped from the Liverpool squad.


5.) 20 Sep 2018 17:39:37
Think you will find Lallana is injured and has not been dropped by liverpool nor England.


6.) 20 Sep 2018 18:17:10
Looks a bit like that Cokney fitness guy who my wife fancies.
But it got her into exercising, so I’m good with that.
I’m sure he will look good in our Nivea and Levi ads.


7.) 20 Sep 2018 20:46:49
I was at the game and I have to say if people think Hendo just passes sideways then watch Rabiot he takes passing sideways to a whole new level.

{Ed002's Note - The relevance being what?}


8.) 20 Sep 2018 20:07:00
Well, he wasn't in the world Cup, despite playing in the champions league final. And he looked fit enough on pre season. Maybe not totally match sharp but he was all over the pitch.

He may have been injured for the reserves since, I don't know.


9.) 20 Sep 2018 21:24:56
The OP asked for people’s thoughts on Rabiot so I gave them my thoughts. Can’t see a problem with that Ed2.

{Ed002's Note - they all seem to think he will be joining Liverpool.}


10.) 20 Sep 2018 21:32:04
I don’t know anything about that mate. I just thought he was tidy but didn’t effect the game as he just went sideways and backwards every time he got the ball. That might be more about our press suffocating him but I just said it as I saw it.

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

RazorSharp

{Ed001's Note - he can play left mid, as can Robbo, but we don't really play with a left mid.}

Ed1 do you think Tierney from celtic would be a good shout to replace moreno?

RazorSharp

{Ed001's Note - if he was currently interested in leaving Celtic then yes, but he won't move to back up Robbo.}

Imagine having Nicola and Alisson playing for us.

RazorSharp

{Ed002's Note - Cagliari’s Nicolo Barella has been subject to being watched by Inter, Roma, Chelsea, Lyon, Juventus and Milan this season but his club insisted he was not for sale this summer when Roma enquired. Juventus took they interest no further and he is not first choice for Lyon but after talks with representatives of two clubs it emerged that at the right price Barella could be move to Inter if Matias Vecino were to move.}

Perhaps as well as giving players the opportunity to cement a regular place, they are also gaining match fitness and putting themselves in the shop window. If the play well it benefits everyone.
