That was the first time we achieved 4 wins on the bounce in the league since March 2015 (where we made it 5).

Taurus01

1.) 02 Oct 2016 13:03:01
Didn't we go something like 13 wins in a row?
It was quite incredible really.


2.) 02 Oct 2016 14:02:25
We did 13 in a row in 2014, think it was January till April or something. Would be amazing if we could do that again!


3.) 02 Oct 2016 15:54:50
we certainly have the potential to do it again, i'd love to see that.


4.) 03 Oct 2016 12:18:39
Calm down!
Let's not get carried away. 4 wins is a long way from 14!

We are 7 games in and there is a long way to go.

Hi Eds,
Do Liverpool have any interest or are they watching Fraiser Forster? Also what are your thoughts on him as a GK?

Taurus01

{Ed002's Note - No, Liverpool have no interest. He is a decent goalkeeper.}


1.) 13 Feb 2016 18:06:09
Cheers for the response Ed002.

Well on the positive side Karius looked good. I do think these past couple games have gone to show the importance of Henderson.

Taurus01

1.) 11 Jan 2017 22:50:12
Really pedestrian football tonight, the exact opposite of how KLOPP likes to play, surely that should tell KLOPP that he has to move Lucas and Can on, yes Can he slows the game down to much, are early season form has deserted us just when we need it most. any thoughts EDD'S

{Ed002's Note - Lucas is miffed that he was not allowed to leave in the summer and feels he has a lot to give but is simply padding at Liverpool know - but I understand he is helping out with one or two youngsters which I think is great. Can - I guess you can see why Bayern Munich decided not to take up their option. I would not be suprised to see Klipperty let him go at the end of the season.}


2.) 11 Jan 2017 23:06:58
My thoughts exactly Taurus.

Anyone know when Hendo is expected back?


3.) 11 Jan 2017 23:19:42
Well what do we know Ed. Not so long ago most on here were saying he was a future captain of the club. Not only does he slow the play down, but he has stopped using his strength to burst forward with the ball. To me he looks like his confidence has gone, and he is giving the ball away on a regular basis. Unfortunately he needs to move on

{Ed002's Note - There would never be a chance of him being captain. Liverpool will maintain an English or British captain. If we make what I think is a reasonable assumption that during late March Henderson is attacked and killed by black bears after wolves get Milner during the forthcoming overnight stay at the Avalon Guest House in Plymouth, then Lallana will take over as captain.}


4.) 12 Jan 2017 00:13:54
Fooooking hell Ed you me make laugh even when I feel like booting dog 😁


5.) 12 Jan 2017 00:56:03
That's not a nice way to go Ed

If that comes true, you're in Big Trouble

I suggest you leave the dog some easy openers!

6.) 11 Jan 2017 23:46:56
Taurus, yes I see, Henderson can would be doing those pacy runs down the flanks and go on mazy dribbles And score goals like mane if he played .


7.) 12 Jan 2017 08:31:27
Leek, henderson is far more creative than can, is more reliable in keeping possession and provides better protection to the back four.


8.) 12 Jan 2017 09:49:21
Yes, Can is not performing ATM. But I won't write him off just for now. He was very good last season and I believe he can get back to his best


9.) 12 Jan 2017 11:35:35
Can is and was very raw and average.

See no point in persisting with him and he has justified Bayern Munich and the other team team where he came from in not persisting with him.

But our fans won't agree here.


10.) 12 Jan 2017 14:21:43
Sami, so we should just give up on him cos he`s having a rough time? With that attitude, Firmino, Hendo and Lallana would have been gone if we hadn`t shown patience with them. Good to know you don`t make such decisions at the club.


11.) 12 Jan 2017 15:27:15
Why are we playing Wolves? And what have they got against Hendo? 😡


12.) 12 Jan 2017 16:43:53
Yes Hamilton Red.

With your logic, we should have persisted with all players then, why only Can? (Tiago Illori, Suso, Andre Wisdom etc) .

Just think how gifted Can is for getting so many chances whereas others would die even to get 1/ 10 of his time.

Point is this isn't a school / amateur league where we could give promising player chances and hope that they will come good.

I strongly believe in you are there or you are not. Promise and Potential are words used against average or below average category type of players.

Other side of it is they will be already playing day in and day out.

Hi Ed001,

Who would you like to get a chance to start in the FA cup game? Personally I'd like to see TAA, Karius, Stewart and Woodburn in action.

Taurus01

{Ed001's Note - Gomez, Wilson and Juanma.}


1.) 06 Jan 2017 06:41:03
Ojo and Wilson with the amount of hype on their shoulders and with Mane away this could be the best game for the kid to make an impression


2.) 06 Jan 2017 07:56:56
Definitely Ojo

{Ed001's Note - I think he needs more time to recover from his injury personally. I doubt he would do himself justice and that would just lead to the fans getting on his back. We have seen how little patience the fans have with youngsters breaking through if they are not having a storming game every time they appear.}


3.) 06 Jan 2017 08:27:36
Wilson looks to have matured a lot in last 12 months - if Ojo isn't back to fitness then I'd like to see Wilson too


4.) 06 Jan 2017 08:31:36
Totally agree about ojo. And he looks like he is just getting up to speed at that level. He shoild be left to continue his upwards progression.


5.) 06 Jan 2017 09:05:34
Be nice to see Jack Dunn on the bench? He scored a hat trick off the bench the other day for the u23's.


6.) 06 Jan 2017 09:31:03
Good shout on juanma, would like to see what he can do. I think ojo would be suited to a bench role and maybe come on in the second half to get a taste of what he has been missing.


7.) 06 Jan 2017 09:46:50
agree on Ojo, but im itching to see Wilson.


8.) 06 Jan 2017 15:56:09
I hear per the Ed01, that Juanma is quite the talent both offensively and defensively.

{Ed001's Note - the U23 set up really believe in this lad, which is why I want to see him in the first team.}


9.) 07 Jan 2017 11:24:53
Be a shame if Ojo isn't ready.
Never mind, I just hope Kloppo doesn't lose faith in him.
For me he looks like a world beater one day. It's the way he moves with the ball, at pace but effortlessly. He moves like Digger, like a Rolls Royce. 😎


 

 

28 Nov 2016 12:21:58
Hi Ed001,

Review of Karius' time at pool so far? I've been pretty happy with him and can see he is growing in confidence.

Taurus01

{Ed001's Note - it is near impossible to review him, as he has had so little to do it is very difficult to get any idea of what he is like. He does seem to be a lot better on the ball now, than he was when he first returned from injury. He does seem to be growing in confidence. However, until he is really put under pressure, we will not find out how good he actually is.}


1.) 28 Nov 2016 17:10:27
"Until"? With our way of play, surely you mean "if", ed :> Just kidding, but in all honesty the strongest aspect ofthe red's season and the Klopp rebirth is how well the current system complements the defense. Long it may continue.
I like what I see from Karius, he seems better with the ball than Mignolet and more proactive. He made the right call with both Sunderland chances last game - which were both match-defining at 0-0 - and there was a spell against Watford that lasted about 10-15 minutes at 5-0 and consisted of our midfield and defense falling asleep and allowing Watford a free run at goal. Karius actually acquitted himself really well, made a couple of vital saves, before being unmade by a shot from the edge of the area that passed close to Matip's feet and was thus hard to spot on time.


2.) 28 Nov 2016 17:13:12
The fact that he has had very little to do is a testament to how solidly we have been defensively and slowly but surely, our defence is being fixed. Credit to Klopp!


3.) 28 Nov 2016 17:19:15
I could say the same on Matip. He has yet to be really tested.
excellent on the ball, quick and strong, good in the air but has made a few mistakes positionally. Hasn't cost us goals however so it's really knit picking. His ability on the ball however is top class. He actually looks more dangerous on the ball than some of our midfielders when he pushes up. Great buy. Only 25. He's been fantastic over all. Against man city I suspect we'll see just how good he is.

{Ed001's Note - what mistakes positionally? The reason he hasn't been tested is mainly down to having been excellent positionally. Not sure what you are watching sometimes.}


4.) 28 Nov 2016 17:39:21
Against Sunderland he was on the wrong side of defoe from a ball over the top and defoe was nearly clear through bar from falling over looking for a free kick. It's knit picking but Its an observation.

{Ed001's Note - give me the minute, because I want to check this. But if that is all you have to say then you should shut up and get off his back and give us all a rest.}


5.) 28 Nov 2016 17:46:14
Teams sit back and defend because they are aware of our fire power up front. I don't think our defense is world renowned Class yet. I might be wrong as Hamilton said so!


6.) 28 Nov 2016 18:23:00
If you want the minute I'd suggest you rewatch the match. I also mentioned Sunderland because it was our last game.
I've had nothing but praise for Matip and have watched him like a Hawk because I think he's been outstanding as a whole. There's been moments were he's been on the wrong side of the attacker and this is just lack of concentration nothing to do with ability. He's a lot better than lovren.
It's constructive criticism. It's also the first time I've mentioned it and again I said it's knit picking because I think he can be a great player and it entices responses.
If I'm being an ass in your opinion edd fair enough but the "shut up and give us all a rest" is a bit aggerated.
Here's some virtual love*mate ♥.

{Ed001's Note - if you say so, but I have seen nothing in terms of praise for him from you at all myself, so I can only judge on what I have read and you are clearly looking for things to have a go at, rather than make constructive criticism, from what I have just seen here. On the wrong side once in a game is not necessarily lack of concentration in a game where your team has total control of the ball and you are spending the match playing in midfield. Was it even a lack of concentration or good movement from the forward? If you can't even give me a time to look at, I can only go on what I remember from the match, as I don't have time to go back and rewatch a whole match because you think there was one split second a player fell asleep. I will stick with my impressions of the match and that is that he was excellent.}


7.) 28 Nov 2016 18:53:42
I would give you the time if I had watched the clock when it happened mate. You're going to have to take my word edd.
I can't argue against Matip being excellent as a whole . I think he's been a terrific buy and has aided in lovren also playing well. His ability on the ball right now makes him a stand out centre back in the league.


8.) 28 Nov 2016 20:56:48
Big Al, you are wrong here. I have watched Matip way before he came to us and if the one mistake (the one you are the only one who claimed to see it) is all you can go by, then you are really clutching at straws. Matip may have made a mistake here or there (one he made that led to Costa`s goal comes to mind) but the fact of the matter is that he has been brilliant for us and I NEVER panic when he has the ball as he is just majestic on it. one error? That`s it? Good heavens, no wonder Klopp got peeved at the crowd on Sat. Please, stop moaning for no reason about a player who has been awesome for us and helped fix our defence. You sound like a bitter who just wants to moan whereas every man and his dog knows there`s nothing to see here.


9.) 28 Nov 2016 22:40:28
To be fair, Big Al, I think the media are driving a lot of this myth about his positioning. If you watched Match Of The Day you'd have heard the commentator say of his save (at 17 minutes) "His hesitancy nearly cost him there". What actually happened, in my opinion, was he showed a lot of intelligence and decided to abort running out for the ball and instead set himself directly between the attacker and the goal and chose the right moment to close it out.

The media really are trying to find a weakness with us and because of his uncertainty with some crosses in his first few games (having just recovered from a broken hand) are using Karius to perpetuate the myth that we are weak at the back. I don't think this is really the case at all.

{Ed025's Note - hes only young and has time on his side fornax, but he is a bit of a vampire at the moment mate.. :)


10.) 29 Nov 2016 00:35:18
Spot on, Fornax. First the media used the clean sheet myth. That did not stick then, it became the breaking teams down thing and we've been doing that overall. Now, it's Karius. This is the same media who still think Utd can still win the league, mind you. Pathetic!


11.) 29 Nov 2016 01:27:05
That's a great comment fornax.


12.) 29 Nov 2016 04:54:06
I don't see the point in criticising players for small isolated mistakes. It comes with the expectation that they should be perfect. Mistakes should only be criticised if they are consistent. Matip has rarely made mistakes, so what's the point in nitpicking about it?


13.) 29 Nov 2016 09:46:09
Have not lost a game yet with him between the sticks, kinda sums it up really. He was shaky but i have every confidence in him despite a wayward goal kick.

Seems people are clutching at straws to find things to criticise our players. Enjoy the ride i say and try not to muddy your enjoyment with being hyper critical.


 

 

20 Nov 2016 12:51:17
We had an off day and there were chances to win the game but I'm glad we managed to keep a clean sheet. I was often worried about what would happen in those games where we just couldn't score? Well being able to not concede certainly helps in those games.

Taurus01

1.) 20 Nov 2016 13:01:19
A point on the road in a hostile environment is globally, not a bad result. At least, it wasn't a snooze fest like the Bunley game where we were awful and created next to nothing.


2.) 21 Nov 2016 08:23:34
But I think it was a bad result because:
1. Liverpool are top or were top and we're playing really well

2. klopp should have rotated

3. most importantly, lfc dominated the game and had chances to win.

The games where it's (ok) to have a draw is when Liverpool are terrible and taking a draw is better than a loss.


3.) 21 Nov 2016 11:08:32
I'd rather we played well and draw the game than badly and draw.

Sometimes it just doesn't fall for you, and better we bank the point and move on than play badly and start to question ourselves.

Hi Ed001,
Any chance of a preview for tomorrows game?

There's a dominant gene which causes some people to grow a 6th finger. However due to natural selection it is though that a 6th finger is not beneficial to us and actually a hindrance.

My thoughts are as normal. Not my ideal choice of signing but if he joins Liverpool let's support the lad and hope he brings success to the club.

I can't say he was my first choice of who we should sign in all honesty, but if he joins the team I wish him all the best and hope that he can become an integral part of Liverpool.

I believe he also trained with Liverpool at the time too?

Taurus01

{Ed002's Note - His is turning in to a complete flake and I cannot envisage Klopp being interested in him - if he is then he has really lost the plot.

Having had some time to demonstrate his immaturity in Madrid, Martin Odegaard needs to get out on loan and get some game time for a while. Getafe were offering that but he wasn't interested. Bayern Munich were providing the offer of a more permanent solution for him but I suspect Carlo Ancelotti has put and end to that. Hamburg might provide a more sensible solution.}

The problem is when Matips gone our CBs cannot play together. Lovren looks much more assured when paired with Matip. I agree we need another CB otherwise we could end up like city in defence. Without Kompany there defence is a shadow of what it could be. The same applies to ours without Matip. let's not go and spend too much money on overhyped CBs the papers rave about (look where that got city with Mangala, Stones and Otamendi) but only buy if someone who can strengthen the team is available.
