Eds is there any truth that Joe Gomez might be going to Nottingham Forest on loan?9.

He wouldn't drop down to them minnows surely.

Thanks Ed!

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

Hi Eds, I've been reading recent paper talk and seen links to Timo Werner, is there any truth to to theses rumours? As I feel he'd be a better alternative to Lacazette (who I previously said I wanted us to sign) based on what I've seen of him recently and on highlights. Also what are your thoughts on him? Thank you in advance.

RedTed21

{Ed002's Note - RBL's Timo Werner was of interest to Spurs before he left Stuttgart but that interest seems to have gone. The German press have been asking Werner about Liverpool but he has remained respectful about the club but has not mentioned any interest. RBL have said nothing since they mentioned that scouts from Chelsea and Liverpool attended a game in December where Werner scored against Hertha Berlin and in January Liverpool and Dortmund scouts watched him score against Eintracht Frankfurt. Given he only joined RBL last summer and his season is going well with Leipzig more than likely being in the Champions League next season, RBL will not be looking to sell and I doubt he will be looking for a move.}

Can any of the Eds confirm if Coutinho had actually gone on strike and is refusing to train and play? A lot of people have talked about this on here in the past 24hrs so was just looking for some clarity. If it's true that he's doing this then I'd honestly just tell Barcelona pay x amount of money up front with x amount in add ons and let him go, don't want players acting like that no matter how good they are. Thank you in advance Eds.

Not sure if some people on here can read ed002, hence the same questions over and over. Groundhog Day!


2.) 21 Aug 2017 09:41:32
Was only asking because nobody has actually confirmed this.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained that he has not made himself available but training or for games. This is because he wants to leave. It has been explained over and over.}

What are people thoughts on the best possible 11 + subs from the whole of the BPL? I know it isn't Liverpool related but it's better than talking about Keita VVD and couts constantly.
De Gea
Coleman (when fit) Alderwiereld Kompany (when fit) Bertrand
Alli Matic KDB
Mane Kane Hazard
4-3-3
Subs- Lloris, Luiz, Azpilicuetta, Kante, Silva, Aguero, Sturridge (when fit)
Sturridge is there because when fit I think he's honestly one of the best strikers in the league.
What are other people's teams?

RedTed21

1.) 17 Aug 2017 19:40:47
Kante?!


2.) 17 Aug 2017 19:44:33
Lloris
Azpilicueta, Kompany, Bailly, Bertrand
Kante, Matic
Mane, Alli, Coutinho
Aguero

Courtois, Alderweireld, Alonso, Dembele, Firmino, Hazard, Kane.


3.) 17 Aug 2017 19:46:18
Much as I love sturridge, realistically he hasn't been at his best since 2014. Nowhere near a prem 11. He's not even our first choice striker.


4.) 17 Aug 2017 19:46:57
Based on last years performance:

De Gea
Walker Alderwiereld David Luiz Danny rose
Kante
Alli KDB
Sanchez Costa Hazard.


5.) 17 Aug 2017 19:47:52
He's been the best player in the league for 2 seasons running. Surely that's worth a place in the 1st 11?


6.) 17 Aug 2017 19:58:36
Good one ninja 👍.


7.) 17 Aug 2017 19:58:38
For me is de gea, bellerin, toby, david luiz, azpilicueta, mane, kante, alli, hazard, aguero, kane.


8.) 17 Aug 2017 19:58:51
Forgot De Bruyne! Would have him on the bench instead of Firmino (just) .

3 years ago David Silva would have been first name on my team sheet so in my posturing over whether to include him i completely forgot about KDB his team mate 😂.


9.) 17 Aug 2017 20:03:59
Surprised at Sanchez being picked. Since he has moved to striker I've found him to be a little bit ineffective in a lot of games. Not as effective as Aguero or Kane. Sanchez played far more games than them last season but still ended up with similar goal tallies. As wide players, i find Mane, Coutinho and Hazard are all better than him now. Going forward we were scintillating. Many (even non LFC) were picking Mane as player of the season last year even though he missed a third of it. I'm with the OP on evicting Sanchez. Great player still, but I'd take Mane, Coutinho and Hazard over him every day.

{Ed001's Note - Alexis Sanchez played wide a lot still, he was the best attacker in the league unti he got fed up carrying 10 players on his back week after week.}


10.) 17 Aug 2017 20:05:43
Based on last season for me it would have to be

De Gea
Coleman Alderweireld Vertonghen Bertrand
Kante Dembele
Mane Coutinho De Bruyne
Sanchez.


11.) 17 Aug 2017 20:24:10
Ed 001 what would your team be?

{Ed001's Note - de Gea in goal. Alderweireld, Luiz and Vertonghen as the back 3. Rose and Walker as wing backs. Dembele and Kante in the centre. Sanchez and Hazard behind Kane. I am not a fan of a back 3, but it is about picking the best players in a shape that suits.}


12.) 17 Aug 2017 20:34:31
De tea
Walker VV dyke Vertonghen Rose
Kante
De Byrne
Mane Hazard
Aguero Kane.


13.) 17 Aug 2017 20:43:09
Isn't it a bit worrying he got fed up though Ed? Suarez carried us to the title and Sanchez as equal if not more natural ability, as well as marginally more skilled team mates than Suarez had.

It definitely says more about his team mates attitude than his, but it disappointed me to see Sanchez throw in the towel. He was my favourite non-LFC player at one stage so i think it took a bit of shine off my opinion of him to see him stomping about with a face like a slapped ass.

{Ed001's Note - why? He still performed well, he just got dropped, then Wenger had to bring him back in to rescue them, which he did. He was excellent, it was his teammates that let him down and it was not so much his performances dipping as theirs meaning he was not getting as much of the ball, instead spending more of the game chasing back as the team were not playing well. Wenger made a terrible decision in backing the lazy tits, rather than backing Sanchez.}


14.) 17 Aug 2017 21:22:34
Fair point Ed, i see what you mean. In hindsight perhaps Wenger should've just put his entire u23's side in the first team with Sanchez to lead them 😂 they certainly wouldn't have lacked a bit of passion then!

It was still sad to see such a model pro give up though. Even if he was still their best player at a stroll.

{Ed001's Note - I don't think he gave up on trying to win games, just gave up on the future being at Arsenal.}


15.) 17 Aug 2017 21:49:17
De Gea, Azpilicueta, Alderweireld, Verthonghen, Rose, Kante, KDB, Coutinho, Sanchez, Hazzard, Kane.

Subs: David Luiz, Walker, Wanyama, David Silva, Mane, Aguero.


16.) 18 Aug 2017 08:32:09
Sanchez is the best all-round player in the PL, period. He is the one I would sign to replace Cou as he will fit the way we play like a glove.


 

 

16 Aug 2017 21:09:12
Eds what other CB's have Liverpool looked at minus VVD and Kouliably? Thank you in advance.

RedTed21

{Ed002's Note - None that I am aware of aside from a youngster.}


1.) 16 Aug 2017 21:58:57
Ed002, is the youngster in the posts or podcast?

{Ed002's Note - It is history - move on.}


2.) 16 Aug 2017 21:59:07
Well that was clever of us eh?


3.) 16 Aug 2017 22:03:06
Okay thank you.


4.) 16 Aug 2017 22:04:31
And keep up the good work (all the eds) it's much appreciated.


5.) 16 Aug 2017 22:48:10
No worries Ed.


 

 

15 Aug 2017 22:55:27
GK- Mignolet although he did well tonight I think Ward or Karius should be given a go.
RB- TAA all day long over Clyne unless TAA's form really slips
CB- please just sign VVD
LB- please start playing Robertson (i know he may not be match fit etc but when he is he needs to play)
CDM- is okay Can Hendo looks lost atm
CM- Lallana when fit and a new CM hopefully Keita if not then Seri or Lanzini
Wingers- Mane and Salah need Ox to come in imo can't rely on these two to play all games this season. Kent will be given chances too but I don't see origi as a winger he's poor there
ST- Firmino should start most games, a fully fit Sturridge will push all the way, Solanke will be pushing for game time too he's ahead of origi in order imo. Ings will likely play for u23's when he's back
CB, CM (unless Coutinho stays) and winger required.

RedTed21

1.) 15 Aug 2017 23:28:32
VVD is not going to sign, he's off to Chelsea.

I'd rather give Kent games than waste money on Oxlade Chamberlain, besides he's off to Chelsea for silly money.

If CDM is going so well, why are teams running through our midfield so easily?

Lanzini isn't a centre midfielder, he's a number 10.

Seri is seen as an alternative Keita, Keita was not seen as a replacement for Coutinho.

As it is we are the weak link in the top six. We have 15 days to put it right. The answer isn't Lanzini, Ox or Gibson.


2.) 15 Aug 2017 23:59:16
Who would you sign then? Just like to hear your thoughts on who we should sign?


3.) 16 Aug 2017 00:22:10
Only 7 players on the team? That is very generous 😂.


4.) 16 Aug 2017 01:10:39
Seri has previously said he doesn't want to play in England. So forget that one. RBL don't want to sell Keita. Personally, I'm almost at the point where I think I'd rather we didn't sign anyone than scrape the bottom of the barrel with signings like Rakitic, Oxlade and Gibson, as it would be repeating the same stupid mistakes that we have always made (Cole, Downing, Poulsen, Konchesky, Jovanovic, Carroll, Adam, Diouff, Cheyrou Etc) and maybe our board and management deserve to see the folly of their frankly awful mistakes that they've made played out in a very difficult season, reap what you sew and all that.

I know who I'd like us to sign, but it's all academic because it won't happen and we don't move effectively enough in the market to make them happen in any case.

This is going to be a very long and difficult season.


 

 

15 Aug 2017 22:24:20
Well one thing to say. Mane and TAA well done! Absolutely quality, Mignolet made good saves, Salah did okay needs more composure etc. Can did a decent job. Apart from them everyone else needs to go up a gear at least if we want to be challenging for trophies this year. Still lack a quality CM unless Coutinho stays and I can't wait for Robertson to start playing and a CB to sing we're crying out for one. Anyway we got a good win let's just capitalise on home support in 2nd leg and get ourselves back where we belong. YNWA.

RedTed21

1.) 15 Aug 2017 22:39:59
Singing centre back? Can't be much worse than Lovren I suppose.


2.) 15 Aug 2017 22:50:38
Meant to say sign aha but I agree I mean even my Grandma could do a better job and she's 75.

We still lack quality in CM, yes when Lallana is back we get a good player back and when window shuts Coutinho will have to start playing etc for World Cup. Still think another CM is needed, depth was our downfall last season. For me CM (Keita or Goretzka), VVD for CB and Ox for wing.

Decimus totally agree. He's also experienced in the CL so could be useful there too.

I'm pretty sure we only have 3 senior wingers? Mane Salah and Kent? Yes Woodburn can play there but he's seen more as a CM, Coutinho can play there but who's knows what's happening there. Firmino, Sturridge and Origi can play there but all are ineffective so by signing Ox we get a player who's versatile and experienced so for me I'd like us to sign him.

I rate him. Only seen him in a handful of matches but he looks decent. At the right price could be a good signing.

If Coutinho does leave and we sign Keita (hopefully) then our best midfield imo would be Can at the base, with Keita and lallana just ahead, leaving Gini and Hendo on bench.

If firmino bags himself 15+ goals (I think he will) and get 5+ assists nobody will moan about him not being clinical enough, 15 goals and 5 assists is something he is capable of, just because he isn't and out and out striker people seem to think he's a bad player because he won't score 20 goals as season it's the other little things he does which creates a much larger impact. I believe Salah and Mane can also bag themselves 15+ goals each so a minimum of 45 goals from our front 3 really wouldn't be bad at all. 14 more to go for them all. YNWA.
