Adidas to be Liverpool's next kit sponsor.

{Ed001's Note - sponsor? Do you mean manufacturer?}


1.) 30 Nov 2018 09:23:10
Corrected, thank you Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - that's ok, just wanted to make it clear for everyone reading.}


2.) 30 Nov 2018 10:48:43
oooh i like adidas. better than nike.


3.) 30 Nov 2018 10:54:04
Actually it is Nike who will make the kits, just saying.


4.) 30 Nov 2018 11:22:06
Damn Nike has been decreasing their quality last few years.


5.) 30 Nov 2018 13:29:55
I don't care who manufactures the kit as long as the manufacturer gives cool money to the club. please share as soon as u know something about it ed01.

{Ed001's Note - it is not my area mate, the playing staff and coaches never take much notice of these kind of things, so only tend to find out when they have to have pics taken in it.}


6.) 30 Nov 2018 17:40:27
When is this meant to be happening anyone know?


7.) 03 Dec 2018 09:07:26
nike has been really subpar lately in the kits they produced.

Hi Tris,

Hope you and your family are well firstly. Just like to thank you for the reviews each day, I look forward to them every day. Would love to pick your brains on football over a drink (non alcoholic in your case) .

I have been reading about defensive options, I agree, sell Matip and possibly Lovren, I'd love to see us get someone with the ball playing side Matip has but with Lovren physical presence. I know we have differing opinions on De Ligt so was thinking of alternatives. Who would be your ideal signing? I'd welcome Klostermann to challenge Trent the centre back is a toughy, nobody really stands out.

{Ed001's Note - everything is good thanks mate, I hope all is well with you and yours too SA?

I have not seen anyone enough that has stood out. Konate at RBL has looked good on the one occasion I saw him, but just one game is not enough. Other than that, it would be Atletico's Uruguayan Gimenez that I would like but is very unlikely.}


1.) 17 Feb 2019 14:21:13
How about Kalidou Koulibaly I’d like to see him st Liverpool!


2.) 17 Feb 2019 14:40:49
Ed01, I have seen Konate a lot last season (watched RBL's games to keep tabs on Naby) and tho he is a physical presence and and pace like his partner Upamecano, I think he is still a bit too raw for a step up to the EPL. Just my opinion. Regarding CB's that have impressed me as well, Jimenez is a good shout BUT do you think he is that good cos Godin is next to him cos after all, that partnership is also the first choice partnership for Uruguay?

{Ed001's Note - hard to tell but yes he does look specia,l.}


3.) 17 Feb 2019 15:02:13
That athletico Madrid cb. Right footed, stand out cb at the world Cup. Can't remember who he plays for or his name so that's you lot well informed on my opinion. A guy who once played well. Two syllables. Bald or short hair. I think it's Uruguay actually.


4.) 17 Feb 2019 15:03:56
Oh redwolf already mentioned him. Godin. He would be perfect. I'd rather Joe gomez manages to put his injuries behind him though. He has it in him to be one of the world's best imo.


5.) 17 Feb 2019 15:04:54
Remember he is still only 22 and kept that Brazilian prima Donna forward quiet when psg came to anfield.


6.) 17 Feb 2019 15:49:59
All well and good my end thanks. Konate looks fantastic, certainly better than Upamecano in my opinion. Giminez is the real deal, offers everything you’d desire in a defender.

God in is on the wrong side of his career now, so unfortunate as he’s my favourite defender out there. I would worry our style wouldn't suit him either.

{Ed001's Note - Godin is slowing down badly. Shame because he is my favourite as well.}


7.) 17 Feb 2019 16:58:38
Godin has already agreed a deal to go to Inter hasn't he?


8.) 18 Feb 2019 00:30:47
I'd like to see Gary Cahill as a possible option. 32 yes but on a free with a 2 year contract I think it would be smart business. Bags of PL experience and medals won. Very good on the ball and has the defensive aggression that matip lacks. His current role at Chelsea would make you think he might love the last big challenge of his career by adding experience to our backline and certainly be given more opportunities of game time than he currently is. I think it would be shrewd business but I feel others might disagree, we've built a nice young squad but no harm in a couple of guys who've tasted success around the squad. Similar to what Milner has done for us.

{Ed0333's Note - really mate Garry Cahill? He wasn’t that good in his prime and you want him now that he’s in the winter of his career? Would be a massive waste of money and time imo.


9.) 18 Feb 2019 02:56:34
That's a fair point I figured people might disagree. I think it's a tad harsh to say he wasn't good in his prime. In 5 full seasons at Chelsea he's played over 200 games under 4 different managers, he's made PFA team of the year in 3 of those season, won every major trophy possible with Chelsea. Yes he's 32 but with teams who tend to dominate possession like us you often see centrebacks being able to play at a high standard into later years due to less workload needed over course of 90 mins. As a backup option I'd take him over matip any day who's on a similar wage currently. Would receive a fee for matip and get Cahill on a free with a 2 year contract. I can't see how that would be a waste of money as opposed to the crazy money being talked for these young defenders who've proved little at the highest level yet, and sitting in the bench possibly behind Joe and vvd would certainly not aid any of there potential development. I see you're point I just kind of disagree is all hahs.

{Ed0333's Note - he wouldn’t be free there’s wages and a signing on fee. He’s has no pace and offers little. I appreciate he won honors and was a mainstay of the Chelsea side a while back but I don’t rate him never did don’t do now but I respect the fact you do. I would rather we blood a kid than a near 33 year old Cahill.

Ed,

Are Barcelona happy to put Coutinho up for sale because they feel he isn't worth the additional payments that could be potentially owed to Liverpool? I hope that makes sense.

{Ed002's Note - No, it is nothing to do with that.}


1.) 17 Jan 2019 16:31:43
I feel that this whole "Coutinho transfer" saga is completely fabricated by the media. There's only 7 players in that squad that have played more minutes than him. He's not the first name on the team sheet, but he's certainly not the last. He's part of a squad rotation.

I think the problem is that he was seen as the successor to Iniesta, and he's not that player. He still a fine footballer though and he'll just have to fill a different role for them.

There's absolutely nothing coming from Barcelona that they want him out. Well at least from what I've seen.

{Ed002's Note - No, he is available and being offered for part exchange.}


2.) 17 Jan 2019 17:58:38
PSG exchange with Neymar?

{Ed002's Note - This is the Liverpool page - it has all been dealt with elsewhere at length.}


3.) 17 Jan 2019 18:08:09
Thanks for the clarification Ed002. I hadn't read anything concrete to that effect until now and I trust your sources.

I expect they want to recoup a large amount of what they paid though, and I'd imagine that there's only a small subset of players that Barcelona would be interested in as a part-exchange. It may end up in them just having to play him to his strengths and trying to fit him in, as there must be very few teams able to sign him and be willing to, and furthermore have a player they are happy to part with that Barcelona also deem worthy for their squad.


4.) 17 Jan 2019 18:58:51
Ed2 is the source.


5.) 17 Jan 2019 19:26:36
I can not laugh enough at his sittuation.
To go to the extent of engineering his "dream move" and to have it turn out as it has done is just funny.

You can not go to Barca, Real Madrid or even PSG to expect first team place as a certainty, especially where they like to buy up everyone they can.

I understand his dream move and his ambition but would be nieve without any real solid assurances that he would be a main starter.

Now he probably feels in no mans land all at the peak of his career.


6.) 17 Jan 2019 19:35:39
Haha Faithinworks. Ed002 is not in charge of Barcelona transfers. If he knows that person (s) directly, that is his source. It more likely that he knows somebody that know somebody that knows that person. Or even one step further. Nonetheless, I appreciate his input so so much.


7.) 17 Jan 2019 19:51:17
Ed2 is not the source he just reads tweets from that fat kid from Bolton. He’s the real source ;-)


 

 

15 Nov 2018 16:47:14
What do us fans and the Ed's feel about Pep Ljinders impact on the first team this season?

I mentioned on a previous post that Buvac seemed the maveric, loved all out attack even if it resulted in us conceding cheaply. This season we seem a more seasoned team, more mature with our play and see games through without playing with that same zip.

Do we think Ljinders has a big role to play in the change of style?

{Ed001's Note - impossible to say for sure, but it is unlikely as he was always an advocate of a high press.}


 

 

14 Nov 2018 13:13:36
On our new signings. Feedback welcomed.

Fabinho looks like a lovely player all beit, he is getting used to a different football culture, new language and climate etc. I think though, by looking at him in recent games he needs to improve his intensity, become more aggressive and improve on his overall decision making. My belief is he will compliment Trent well being a top class right back by trade knowing his responsibilities of covering when Trent advances which i saw a lot of against Fulham.

Shaqs looks like he could be another Coutinho type signing. Absolute steal in price, intelligent play making, amazing set piece taker and the luxury that he doesn't score 'normal' goals. The fact he cuts in and likes to shoot and the low center of gravity drew some similarities, difference only being the foot they generally like to play with.

Keita i've not seen enough of but, i was there for his debut i genuinely mean it when i say it was one of the best debuts from a player coming from another league that i've ever seen. He has been put on the left at times then injury struck. I feel, we will see the very best of Naby next season playing expansive box to box football and chipping in with a few goals.

Allison just looks assured, he fills me with confidence but more importantly those in front of him are assured to have him in between the sticks. Its no big coincidence we have the best deffence in the league this year, he has added calmness a long with excellent distribution at times. Last season had Alisson been in the team, he'd probably be on assist number 8 for the season. However the mutrity in our play this year will see more calmness and a more seasoned approach to his play.

Happy red at the minute, how could you not be? Rest assured this will be the biggest push for the title we have ever made, enjoy the ride!


1.) 14 Nov 2018 14:44:41
Now that is the kind of post I enjoy reading, nice one Samuel, great post mate.


2.) 14 Nov 2018 19:01:43
Brilliant post, OP and your assessment is very nuanced and cohesive. As Keita, I watched RBL a tonne last season and don't worry about him. If he shows anything remotely resembling the perfs. he was showing in the second half of last season (after a difficult first half) then you will love him. Take the RBL v Bayern for example. They had NO answer for him in the press cos he was all over the Bayern midfield and bursting forward with pace, power and precision in his decision-making in the final third. He scored the winning goal in a 2-1 win and Matts Hummels after the game, said that he had never seen a team press them that much in a game. When he gets up to speed, look out.


3.) 15 Nov 2018 09:36:01
Thank you Salah,

i feel we set the bar so high in terms of performance last year that our expectation this year is to do the same. A lot has to do (in my opinion of course) with the back room change. Buvac was the maveric that likes the ploy of 'you score 1 we'll score 2". Ljinders is cautious and it is bringing out the best of our defence. As i said in my previous post, we look much more seasoned and calmer now, not the 10 goal thrillers of last season but we aren't conceding silly goals anymore which is fantastic.

The old saying, goals win you games but clean sheets win you titles springs to mind!

BRover, thank you also,

Very excited to see that Naby in a red shirt, im filled with confidence that his signing will elevate our play. Interesting what you said about Bayern and the press, can't wait to seem him and Ox play together. That high octane football will be an absolute joy with Fabinho sitting in behind picking up the pieces. Like i say, Fab is just settling in and gelling but once he does he will set like concrete in our midfield.

Thought Gomez was great last night, took instructions well from Van Dijk and believe there's a real partnership that can be formed here. Robertson was great again, Milner is coming on leaps and bounds, Henderson was neat and tidy and Bobby was just Bobby tireless and completely none stop. Wasnt our best performance but that was a game we'd have dropped points last season.


1.) 21 Aug 2018 09:31:09
Gomez I agree was decent. Robertson was quite poor and Bobby looks very rusty he didn't have a good game. Very little impact and his one shot was slashed 30 yards wide. I don't understand why he gets constant praise even when he has an average game. I am sure he will improve when he is fully upto speed but he should have been subbed earlier.

Salah was also not at his best but he constantly effects the game, he still does the tracking back but he is effective both ways.


2.) 21 Aug 2018 09:31:53
I actually though that Robertson (and Trent) were pretty poor last night - nothing special in defense (although neither were put under much pressure) but going forward they were rushing, not looking up and wasteful of several good chances. Would much rather it happens in a game like yesterday than against someone who will punish that but certainly not the follow up I was hoping for from the West Ham game.


3.) 21 Aug 2018 09:56:42
Firmino never looked like he was going to score last night but the work he got through was unreal. He was everywhere linking the play, making tackles, pressuring the ball. I thought he played well.


4.) 21 Aug 2018 10:32:38
Follow up to the West Ham game? Like 3 points away from home at a tough palace ground on a Monday night, where other teams around us will drop points. I'm delighted with a win there while some of our top lads weren't at it. Sign of title challengers which is what I'll be taking away from that game.


5.) 21 Aug 2018 11:15:30
We had a couple of players last night who looked tired and Bobby just lacked his normal sharpness, still think he is a top player who might need a rest.

Crystal Palace have the makings of a good team there and played well which knocked us back as if we didn't expect them to rise to the challenge.

Players like Schlupp, Zaha, Townsend, Milhojovich (spelling) and van arnholtt are all players who on their day are good enough for any top four club and they definitely raised their game for us last night.

We managed a win where I think a lot of big teams could come undone, with the pace Palace can utilise in such a direct manor.

I feel it is a step forward for us as a team to win when maybe not all our players were firing on all cylinders.

Football aside, I wish forum salah all the best in his recovery and hope he is back posting soon. There are some cretins in this world but get your chin up and keep up your positivity which shows in your previous posts.


6.) 21 Aug 2018 12:19:07
Firmino has had plenty rest he just needs games.


7.) 21 Aug 2018 12:46:27
Last night want a game for our players to look good, office were organised at the back and dangerous on the counter. I'm pretty delighted how everyone performed.

No offence at all Ed001 but you didn’t want us to sign VVD and that worked out fine. MDL is awesome.

{Ed001's Note - no offence taken but he is not awesome. As for van Dijk I gave my reasons for that and it was not a lack of ability to defend unlike de Ligt.}

For me Mr Ed002, football is an entertainment business. I, for one am very entertained by watching Klopps Liverpool team play pro-active and high octane football. We haven't won anything as of yet, down to numerous reasons one being Klopp so im not questioning you on every angle but i can assure you as a fan of this club, speaking on behalf of most supporters we are fully behind him. There is a lot of abuse towards players, as you have noted and i fully agree that some of the fans that abuse our own players instead of getting behind them is atrocious. However, we back the manager and yet we are made to feel stupid for backing him by yourself, contradiction much?

Clearly you are an intelligent man but this would seem very personal toward Liverpool supporters apposed to being a fair critique. Just my opinion, hope you take it on the chin old chap.

{Ed002's Note - Nobody is questioning whether the fans are behind Klopp or not. If you feel stupid, that is because in such situations in the past the fans have turned on the coaches and not only the players - vandalising Anfield to get coaches out is one old trick. I think you will find I have done nothing but been entirely honest about Liverpool supporters so you whinong dig at me is no more than embarrassing for you in my eyes.}

Im hugely against the format and believe its majorly selfish to expect fans to travel boarder to boarder. Its difficult enough, but week in week out fans are going to find it financially impossible to do. It also eradicates the champions league, a competition with so much history and charm. It will kill the game we have all known to love, i can absolutely assure you all of that. Only one winner here, and its the corporate's.

I get what Mr Ed002 means. We have a long awaiting line of hip cool strikers wanting a game, with Sturridge and Origi foretailing the list. Brewster simply has to compete with that but how about Timo Werner? Maybe he could join the hip cool centre forward band, or replace Origi? Maybe even jump the queue for Brewster paving the way for a move to Union Berlin? Id day, as Frankie would say, relax. We’re in a very swell position and all is fine. Have a nice day.
