Hey Eds and Reds,

A little late but here's my Danny Ward update after Sunday's game against Sheffield Wednesday.

Huddersfield, and Ward, suffered their first home defeat in the Championship this season as they went down 0-1 to finish the weekend 3rd in the table, outside of the automatic promotion spots on goal difference.

Before I begin Ward's performance review, it's worth noting that after 12 league games, he and his club boast a defence that no side in the division have conceded fewer goals than, so that's a major plus note for Ward as he has played every game so far.

Onto his performance, in a game that was not too dissimilar to Liverpool's against Man Utd last night. Sheff Weds came to stifle Wagner's creative, energetic side just as Mourinho did on Red Monday. Except a second half penalty saw the Owls nick a win.

That meant that, ultimately, Ward had little to do over the 90 minutes in terms of saves. He was helpless for Forestieri's well-placed penalty kick winner. Ward dived the wrong way but the Wednesday man dummied his kick well.

Aside that, Ward was beaten on one other occasion by Forestieri, as Town's defence was beaten by a simple long ball which Forestieri brought down. Ward came out to close him down but was chipped. The post came to his rescue. Truthfully it was a clever strike and it would be harsh to blame Ward. He came out well enough and made himself big. Really he caused Forestieri to miss the chance.

Other than that, he had no other meaningful shots to deal with. So onto his distribution.

His passing was largely short as Wagner wants his team to play out from the back. It was accurate and really without fault so nothing much to complain about there.

His command of the box was also good. He had one moment where he let a cross go over him but no danger ultimately came of it. He claimed crosses well and made an excellent sweeper keeper for a number of Sheff Weds' long balls forward, to which he was sharp and off his line to clear. This was his most impressive part of his performance.

One other slight blip was on one occasion when he came to close down a Wednesday attacker, he left himself a little stranded and almost allowed the opposition in for a chance.

Overall, he wasn't helped by Wednesday being capable of exploiting a sluggish centre back pairing for Town that on more than one occasion failed to deal with simple punts over the top. Ward had to be alert and concentrated for the whole game as Town had the vast majority of the ball and Wednesday had little territory near Ward's goal.

A disappointing result in the end but Ward was not to blame and he had a largely sound game. He continued to impress and he has said this week that he hopes to stake a claim in the Liverpool side going forward.

He's doing his chances little harm at Huddersfield, and hopefully he continues to avoid injury, maintain form and keep his place in the team. The experience he is gaining, in a side managed by a man who knows Klopp very well, will no doubt be invaluable for him.

Thanks Reid the Red. Watched the game as I have a soft spot for Huddersfield having worked there and attended a few games. Spot on with the review of the game. Nothing Danny Ward could of done with the penalty as it was well placed. Hoping they can have as good a season as we do, would be nice to se them in the premier, though financially they aren't as well set up as some of the competition.

2.) 19 Oct 2016 00:15:29
Thanks for the update Reid, hopefully he continues to impress and comes back to challenge for the No.1 spot next season.

3.) 19 Oct 2016 01:55:26
Thanks mate, sounds exciting that lad.

4.) 21 Oct 2016 00:56:35
Thanks mate for the very thorough update. One question - is he being used as a sweeper keeper (German style where the keeper positions himself further upfield) or as a traditional goalkeeper?

Hey Eds,

I have been reading quotes from Suso that says if he were to sign a new contract at LFC then he thinks it would be good for him to spend another year on loan at Almeria. Is this a possibility?


Reid the Red

{Ed001's Note - yes. Almeria would love to keep him.}

1.) Ed would it not be better him going to a prem team for prem experience? Swansea would be good for him

{Ed001's Note - that is saying Swansea are still in the Prem, and how they end up playing under Monk, whether they would want him etc etc. I can't see it would be a good move for Suso to go there myself.}

2.) I can see what your saying ed just think he would be better havinga year in the prem would help him massively and us to

3.) He's already got prem experience. What's important is that he plays - which he is At the moment.

Hey Eds,

I know there has been numerous questions on this of late but there has been little confirmed from you Eds so I'm going to ask again to see if there's been any update - have we bid for Diego Costa?

Thanks in advance {Ed002's Note - I am aware of interest but have no confirmation of a bid being made.}

Same to me JK, I want to see Kita Fab and Hendo together, tho Hendo is suspended and I feel Klopp will opt for the more secure choice and won't play the other two for the first time in a derby day.

Thanks very much Reid.

Ok I was just excited about December and looking to cheer the team on! So just posted in that spirit.
I didn't mean to say we will win all games, I just said we can win them all. Majority big games are at anfield and would be disappointed if we lost any of them.
Just as a fan this is what I live for these big games and we have so many in December. Love it.
And I am much assured this is a different team and we will be winning most of the games in December. Also very happy everybody is fit and they should be ready to write a new chapter in lfc history.

Thanks very much gents - was asked about adding in predictions but decided against it as I can't bring myself to predict Liverpool games and so I can't have one rule for one and another for the rest so I abstained! Football's an unpredictable beast anyway.

So as soon as he's back in the goals more regularly he gets linked with a move by newspapers? Shock horror. I wouldn't worry about it mate.

Oh I'm certainly not holding my breath Ed, I know it won't be happening and he's almost certainly played his last game in a Liverpool shirt.

And Swishcleaner, I was merely sticking up for another of our players. I accept it's a losing battle but I will defend our players from unnecessary criticism such as that when I can. I wish fans could get behind our players for a bit before they get judged for making one or two slight errors or below par games.

I love your Monday reviews Ed, I think you’ve shown you have such a massive range of football anecdotes but I wouldn’t be averse to you broadening that! I’d say you could alternate by week - football one week, something else (be it another sport or something different entirely) the next and alternate? Would that be something you’d be open to doing?

Reid the Red

{Ed001's Note - yes mate. I could certainly do something like that.}

Fair enough Ed, I suppose it's always hard for a GK to have enough of an impact on a game to get an 8+ rating, especially when Burnley only had 3 shots on target, one of which was after a foul!

Reid the Red

{Ed001's Note - exactly mate. If they are having that much of an effect, it means the rest of the team were crap.}

A great read as always Ed001 - enjoyed the Burnley review too, was interesting to read your thoughts on our opposition as much as us.

I have one issue - I think you marked Alisson pretty low with 7.5! I felt he was exceptional, that save and then quick thinking to launch the counter for our third goal was something I don't think any other PL GK would have pulled off - and you are right, he was absolutely fouled for Burnley's goal and they were offside so he should be celebrating another clean sheet.

Also, as a stat guy - Alisson has now equalled Javier Mascherano's record of 15 PL games unbeaten at the start of their career with us! I honestly believe that with another GK, that wouldn't have happened - he's been great from day one.

Reid the Red

{Ed001's Note - but the issue is that he did not have that much effect on the game overall, as they were not good enough to test him. It is about their positive or negative effect overall rather than how well they play.}

Great review as always Ed. Agree with your views, the referee had a stinker, particularly with the first booking for Hendo when Success was tugging his shirt first, but you’re correct then our captain shouldn’t have let that affect him in the manner it did.

I actually think there are a couple of extra positives to take and that’s that Henderson can hopefully learn from that reaction and not be so hot headed next time he is frustrated, and Robertson can hopefully also learn from his poor raised leg that could have lead to a Watford penalty. It’s so important in football to learn from your mistakes and if they can both learn from theirs, in a game in which we won well anyway, then that can only be a good thing in the long run.

I think Hendo will be a miss for next weekend’s derby, however. He is a reliable and effective player in that midfield and has played in plenty of Merseyside derbies - we’ll miss that experience. At least it’s only a one game suspension! Onto Paris we go!

Reid the Red

{Ed001's Note - I have never known Jon Moss have anything but a stinker to be honest. Utterly inept, with the pace and mobility of an 80 year old Jan Molby.

I hope they do learn, we all make mistakes the key thing is to learn from them.

As for Hendo, he will be a big miss.}
