Heard from a good source that Ceballos is 'nailed on' to join before the window closes. No idea how my source knows but works within football and simply passed it on, make of it what you will.

Personally I would be a bit underwhelmed if the de facto replacement for Coutinho was Ceballos as seems a marked step down in quality but hey ho let's see what materialises.

Why are people saying he is the replacement of coutinho? What if we are taking advantage of his situation at madrid?

Although I agree that he is not a Coutinho replacement, I think he is a good player and would be a good acquisition for the squad looking forward.


2.) 11 Jan 2018 10:55:19
Yes we ain't going to replace coutihno he is a world class Brazil international, but what we can do is strengthen the areas we are weak in we lack creative spark in midfield an someone who can manipulate the ball he is a gamble but could also turn out too b real quality well worth a punt especially if we can get keita early as well suddenly midfield is lookin healthy freeing up the attack, ox, mane, Salah, firmino, lallana, solanke, sturridge, nice options, still I would like us too buy an attacker like lemar, mahrez, suso, draxler wishful thinking though.


3.) 11 Jan 2018 12:00:02
I wonder if we will hear from wonder dog sparky?


4.) 11 Jan 2018 13:53:12
Hi eds i'm going to need your email addresses, mothers maiden names and the names of your first pets. uh. for science

Seriously though I hope we can do something like this, the buzz the club had post VVD left along with Phil.


5.) 11 Jan 2018 22:02:17
Coutinho was crap in midfield. Addressing the balance there would be an upgrade.


6.) 11 Jan 2018 22:39:08
Faith, he wasn’t really crap in midfield though was he? He played most games in midfield this season and had one of his best (half) seasons.


7.) 12 Jan 2018 19:12:12
our midfield is very weak at the moment, and could be the weakness that City will try and take control over, we really need at least one top player coming in this window, the name I have is the big guy from Roma,

Was about to ask about Jiri Pavlenka and recent links but used the search function and saw it had already been answered. Instead I'll just wish all the Ed's a pleasant saturday, have a good one chaps.

Seano_

{Ed0333's Note - Cheers Seano happy Saturday to you also. Glad to hear the search engine doing its job. I’m watching France v Argentina and can’t decide who I want to win more, it’s a tough decision.


1.) 30 Jun 2018 15:28:38
I hoped France will lose so we can get them home and see what's really going on with fekir . No chance though mbappe causing mayhem in the Argentine backline and Messi may as well be on the bench he doesn't look interested .


2.) 30 Jun 2018 15:42:11
Me too and I agree it is a tough one, I don't really mind to be honest I just want to see good football - so far France look OK and Argentina look woeful. Seems strange having Aguero and Higuain on the bench (and not even selecting Icardi for the world cup) . The 3-4-3 doesn't seem to suit the team much either. Having said that Di Maria has just scored a worldie so maybe not!


3.) 30 Jun 2018 16:23:25
2 worldies and a partridge in a pear tree.

{Ed0333's Note - OMG Parvard’s goal just gets better and better and better and better and better and better and better and better. C’est magnifique Monsiueur.


4.) 30 Jun 2018 16:24:25
Great game by the way, here comes aguero too save something.


5.) 30 Jun 2018 16:29:27
Such a good strike the projectory on that ball was insane, now the teenage mutant ninja turtle is slicing through Argentina and France are too pacey an slick for them, and we have too wait longer for fekir hahahaha.


6.) 30 Jun 2018 16:34:01
Kante is just so so good a dream for any team he plays for!


7.) 30 Jun 2018 16:37:12
Parvard’s goal was a thing of beauty, the technique and spin on the ball, oh my!


8.) 30 Jun 2018 17:21:16
It was an extraordinary goal - thought he was woeful defensively though, typifies many modern fullbacks in that he was good going forward but had no clue when he actually had to defend. Luckily for him, and France, Argentina showed only fleeting moments of attacking threat - 4-3 flattered Argentina in my opinion.


9.) 30 Jun 2018 17:34:51
Who's that one person that just gave a thumbs down on every comment? 😂.


10.) 30 Jun 2018 17:35:51
Except Pavard isn’t normally a full back, he’s usual position is at CB for VFB Stuttgart and occasionally playing right back.


11.) 30 Jun 2018 17:48:00
Said previously that France have got it all.
As long as they can keep down to earth, we're looking at the new World Champions, for me.


12.) 01 Jul 2018 00:45:51
Peaked to early France. They’ll go out in the next round. 👍.

Posting here as I wasn't sure of the appropriate page and I'm a Liverpool fan.

Recently a couple of untested players have been offered, and accepted, management positions at some decent sized clubs - Gerrard with Rangers, Lampard with Derby County, and there may be more I'm over looking. What I'm curious about, and what I'm hoping some of the ED's may be able to shed a light on, is why clubs so frequently opt for ex-pro's? Now I know they have experience playing the game, and of course there are some very highly rated managers who were excellent professionals, but there are also a lot of top managers who either had no history in the game or were what you would call a lower standard of player.

I'm wondering, as I couldn't find any evidence to the contrary, are are ex-pro's (in their first job) statistically more likely to do well as in win more games? Are ex-pro's a better overall option for clubs to go with? I appreciate this may be hard to answer but I feel there are some ex pro's in the game who are there based solely on their name (Mark Hughes is one that jumps to mind) and was just wondering how and why clubs often pick inexperienced ex pro's so frequently. I mean even Valencia gave Gary Neville 6 months! Were was the logic in that?

Thanks for any knowledge your able to share ED's and fellow posters.

1.) 03 Jun 2018 19:41:11
So it really is just a case of a name being well known enough for a club to take a punt? That is a truly insane way of running a club. Thanks for the info ED.

{Ed002's Note - No, it is not as simple as that. They need to present what ideas they have and sell themselves to the club.}


2.) 03 Jun 2018 19:53:41
Rangers in particular will be looking for the attention that signing a legend like Gerrard will bring, and he'll obviously have close links to some English clubs and players. Derby, I'm less sure about. Obviously the same applies for Lampard, but I've also heard a lot of people in the game talk about his intelligence (i always thought he had a rep for being thick, but i may be confusing him with someone else) and knowledge of the game, so he might actually surprise a few people.


3.) 03 Jun 2018 20:02:25
I am sure the publicity helps when a big name comes to the club so may sway a team to pick the player over an experienced coach on the merry go round. I imagine the likes of Gerrard and Lampard are professionaly prepared and show a confidence and determination during an interview similar to how they played the game which could easily impress. The difficulty any coach has is getting a team to perform and there are so mamy factors that affect this that quite. often we just blame the manager when it doesn't work.


4.) 03 Jun 2018 20:57:55
Lampard is a published author of kids books. He is a highly intelligent person.


5.) 03 Jun 2018 20:58:54
Lamaprd is a very intelligent guy, think he has an IQ bordering on genius level!


6.) 04 Jun 2018 08:50:06
I'd take the IQ with a pinch of salt (as it was a test applied by someone not qualified to do so, with a stated interest in having abnormally high readings) but he does have a degree in Latin which he earned whilst playing, so he's not thick.


 

 

26 May 2018 22:19:37
Real Madrid vs Liverpool - the final. Despite feeling obviously deflated I feel in a clear enough state of mind (I haven't drank anything) to post a review of the game.

Karius - dear oh dear. The lad has done so well since coming into the team but he had made not one, but two awful goalkeeping errors. Absolutely nothing the other players can do - it's not often that one player can be blamed so clearly for 2 goals but this is such an instance. Hard to know whether he can recover from this mentally or not - if he does, and he can maintain his performances this season (before the final), then I'm going to call him Lazarus Karius.

TAA - thought he looked nervy for the first 10 minutes but was relatively self-assured there after. Had a lot to cope with on his side of the pitch but did relatively well. Should've been on corners all game - Milner is not a good set piece taker. Additionally, I liked the steely look in his eyes as he went up to collect his loser's medal - this experience is going to help push him to be the best he can be.

Robertson - a lot of running, literally none stop for almost the entire game. Positionally I thought he was suspect even before we started really pushing and they had some joy on his side. However, by an large he did well. His distribution wasn't good tonight though and its something he must improve upon.

Lovren - did well, made a great last ditch tackle on Ronaldo second half and was pretty solid and dependable first half. I don't think he did that much wrong.

VVD - also thought he was decent. Solid at the back, dependable, did his defensive duties well. Could not be faulted for any of the goals.

Milner - did not stop running. Unfortunately, his contributions to this game were fairly minimal, and his running about, though showing plenty of desire, had little purpose or end product to it. Not one of his better games.

Wijinaldum - I thought he was poor for much of the game. Distirbution was lethargic and unimaginative, he rarely if ever got forward and he kept pressing by himself, at random intervals, high up the pitch - it left him out of position and constantly tracking back to recover. Not a good showing.

Henderson - thought he was pivotal for much of the game, read their attacks well and looked to break up play and move the ball forward. Don't think he let anyone down.

Salah - the key man took a nasty looking injury and it changed everything. Before his injury the team looked lively, positive, and had already had a few presentable chances. After he went off the fluidity in attack disappeared, as did our attacking ambitions, and it felt an uphill struggle from that point on.

Firmino - the boy worked hard but the service he received, after Salah went off, was pretty awful it has to be said. Struggled to win the long balls we kept playing and was never really able to affect the game the way we know he can.

Mane - our best player. Full of energy, full of directness and it caused Madrid nightmares. Was unlucky to hit the post, deserved his goal, and can hold his head high.

Subs:

Lallana - anonymous for much of the game. Keeping him in a wing position was not the correct decision and I thought he struggled to really do anything out wide. It does show a distinct lack of attacking options when one of the front 3 do get injured.

Can - didn't really notice him to be honest. Minimal impact but to be expected after his injury lay off.

Klopp - I am not convinced that, once Salah went off, he set the team up in the right way. I thought we sat back after that point and it just invited Madrid onto us. As soon as we went behind we attacked and, low and behold, Madrid looked shaky and we scored. Sitting back was the wrong tactic in my opinion. We resorted to long balls more than we should have and it meant we never really got many of our attacks going either, the fluency we are capable of was lacking in the final third. Lallana playing out wide was not the correct decision - I don't know what was, but he did nothing. I also do not understand why Solanke wasn't brought on - we were playing long balls often enough for it to be at least worth a shot - it might of at least give Madrid another player to worry about. We looked good until the injury but never really looked like we were capable of winning after - how much of that is down to the manager is open to debate but we couldn't adapt. Having said all this nobody can legislate for the goalkeeping performance - arguably the poorest ever seen at this level. We already knew we needed to strengthen this summer - Klopp knows this to.

Ref:

I thought he was OK. Pandered to Madrid's gamesmanship but no big decisions that he got wrong. Wished he would've penalized Ramos/ Varane for their constant rough tactics on Firmino.


Conclusions:

I hope the players, especially the younger ones, remember this. I hope they use this aching disappoint to spur them on, to make them train harder, to make them want it more. Madrid looked better than us but we didn't look out of our depth. We are not that many players away from this level and, if Salah hadn't of been injured, we may well of won the game (we were certainly the better team up to that point) . The players need to shake that off, I think we the fans need to as well, and we can hopefully look forward to a good season next year. Obviously we're all sad and deflated now but chin up reds, this season has been another of positive steps forward, if we continue in this vein then silverware is surely not too far off. Onwards and upwards reds, tomorrow is a new day.

You don’t win finals if the opponent injures your best player and your keeper throws in 2 goals. I’ve been a supporter of Karius but you don’t come back from this, he’s done at the highest level.


2.) 26 May 2018 22:33:14
Well said seano klopp changed his tactics for the final and agen he lost it he needs to stop doing this and play the way that got us there.


3.) 26 May 2018 22:39:02
Sadly I think you're right smeg. Hell be off in the summer. I feel for him and showed courage to apologise to the fans. Personally I'd like him win it with liverpool next year but I don't think he will survive this.


4.) 26 May 2018 22:39:52
Seano the sitting back came from salah going off.

Klopp can't change much as there is no one on the bench to change anything.

We need another pacey wide man to cover the front three.


5.) 26 May 2018 22:40:40
I have been Karius' greatest defender since the day he signed. I don't think he can come back from this. People will remember ONLY this game, NOT all the others where he has been very good and kept us in games due to his saves and assuredness. For now, LFC do NOT have a GK going into next season. My only real concern is for Mo and hopefully, he can play in the WC. As for Ramos, he did what he did intentionally and anyone who thinks the opposite does not know who Ramos is. He's ia a true, real piece of work, that guy. YNWA!


6.) 26 May 2018 22:48:15
terrible from Klopps part if he did not have a contingency plan for anything that could happen. a good strategist prepares for anything that could happen.


7.) 26 May 2018 22:55:10
He is a real peice of work but he also a winner and a serial winner at that like the whole of there squad we need players like this, I don't think Ramos though right I am going too dislocate salahs shoulder with this particular foul, he obviously thought I am fouling Salah and stopping him just our luck the way he went down it wiped him out of game, gutted!, Would of been nice too have more quality on bench this is what needs too b addressed in summer the midfield needs more invention and steel an we need back up on wings plus for bobby if injuries or fatigue, but the keeper ooooooooooh the keeper we need to seriously get our heads out of our asses an get a top quality keeper this is too long with average stoppers.


8.) 26 May 2018 22:57:44
Rubbish stone, name one manager that has a contingency plan for his best player getting injured and his keeper having the worst game of his life, there is only so much a manager can plan for.


9.) 26 May 2018 23:00:08
I would say one thing. Some of the stuff said on Twitter about Karius is bang out of order. The lad is probably crucifying himself at the moment. As angry as I am at the fact that Ramos got away with a dirty challenge that took Salah out the game, I feel bad for Karius as things like stay a long time for keepers.


10.) 26 May 2018 23:13:04
Luckily I don't have twitter to see the abuse he is getting. I will give my opinion though and unfortunately Karius needs to be moved on along with Mignolet.


11.) 26 May 2018 23:37:14
But there’s no need for the things that are being said.


12.) 26 May 2018 23:47:02
FranklyMrShankley I’d be interested to hear your opinion on winning goalkeeper Navas’ performance tonight?


13.) 26 May 2018 23:58:01
He was at fault for our goal, stayed planted on his line ball watching, he looked shaky in a crowded penalty area and wasn’t really tested other than a shot that went right at him, everything else he was over protected by the ref who blew for things that would go uncalled in the premier league. He’s still a poor keeper and being on the side who only won because of two schoolboy errors that he himself has made in countless occasions this season does not change that.


 

 

Liverpool vs Brighton Review 13 May 2018

Cheers for the review. Unbeaten at home in the league all season is nothing to scoff at. Another strong anfield season next year will do nicely. Them 7 draws haven't cost us the title but we need to kill teams off to close that gap.


2.) 13 May 2018 20:54:19
Great article seano. I thought gini played really well today. Harried the brighton midfield and won the ball back well. Also good to see his driving runs which he does well when he is in the right mood. Has got better when we needed him to step up.


3.) 13 May 2018 22:05:17
I agree with you on Gini. Thought he played well today. Which is good to see with the final coming up.


4.) 14 May 2018 10:18:55
Thanks for the kind words, it is much appreciated.

Agree with all points made as well - Gini has stepped up when we needed him to, and our home form has been excellent - real solid platform to continue to build on, which is really promising. Exciting times to be a fan, haven't felt like this since Rafa was in his pomp with us.

Two massive games now.
Both winnable
Come on you mighty Redmen!

5.) 07 May 2018 07:24:42
@Acered - cheers mate.

@Idontlooklikeklopp - I'm not suggesting we have a god given right to just roll Chelsea - like you say they are a good team with a lot of talent in their squad - what I am suggesting is that we the fans expect the players to turn up for the big games, in the last 4 league games nobody has really turned up and taken any game by the scruff of the neck. The players need to be doing more - all well and good saving yourself for the Champions League but, if the players aren't careful, they won't even be in it next year.

@Liver_la - I agree that the players were jaded, no question, but I do not agree that was 'their best'. If it is we are in dire straits. They fell well short of the required standard and never, at any point in the matched, raised their game above average. Against good teams that simply isn't good enough.


6.) 07 May 2018 15:42:56
Klopp knew they were going to come out in a 3-5-2, and yet he sent out Arnold, Milner and Wijnaldum in a clear mismatch in the midfield. Arnold is not ready for the midfield, Milner is clearly tired and Wijnaldum was his usual unpredictable self. If anything he should have made a tactical change at half time. Maybe it could have worked, maybe not. Good review Seano_ 👍.


7.) 07 May 2018 20:09:39
Good read, Seano. Karius did not have his best game BUT he has had way better games so it is all part of the process. I don't agree about the goal being partly his fault. That ball was put in the far corner so don't know what attempting to dive would have done. Gk's are caught out like that all the time so no big deal for me. Spot on with vvd as well BUT I guess he will be given a pass and poor ol' Lovs who had to mark 3 players will get the blame cos well, that is what happens these days.

For me, this was a game that many knew we might lose and we did. Our boys gave their best BUT you can't rely on beating Chelsea at the Bridge while running on fumes so no point, slating whoever for it. Our injuries have come at the worst time and that is a scenario that no manager can plan for this late in the season. On to BHA.

Shaqiri is phenomenally lazy, selfish on the ball, has a very high opinion of himself and sulks when he isn't a starter. He would be an awful signing whatever the cost.

Nothing like Suso who worked hard and impressed when given a chance but was simply not selected when other senior players were available. Suso left because he didn't feel he was being given a fair crack at the whip, the club would of liked to keep him - Grujic will leave because the club do not believe he is good enough, or working hard enough to earn a place in the squad.

Andy Carroll as the biggest disappointment - having just lost Torres to Chelsea and looking for a player to fill the gap I'd heard we'd been close to David Villa and a few other similarly high class players. We ended up signing an alcoholic carthorse for what was, at the time, an astronomical fee far beyond his value.

Torres would be my pick. It wasn't that I was underwhelmed by his signing - he was well regarded in Europe - but he was a young lad coming from the Spanish league in which, though he performed well, didn't have the greatest goal scoring record. Add to that we had, in previous seasons, a succession of forward players who couldn't quite cut it (Cisse, Morientes, etc etc) and my expectations were pretty low. He hit the ground running and proved to be one of the best players I had seen in a red jersey. Shame he left the way he did, but i'll always have fond memories of his goal scoring exploits.

In terms of outright quality it cvould well be argued that it hasn't been a great world cup. In terms of drama though, and tension, and theatre? I think it's been very good - certainly more interesting than I thought it would be. I guess the solution for you Si B is to simply turn off the TV, no ones forced to watch it eh.

What were those players doing shooting air rifles at people? Disgusting behaviour that, should've been giving a harsher punishment. Also disgraceful, but by no means shocking, that another club came in to sign that disgraced youth player who fired the weapon - zero morality in football eh.
