Hi ed,
The rumour pages have Karius as a target for Augsburg. Anything in this at all?

Tristan

{Ed001's Note - there are a few clubs in Germany that would be interested if he were to be available. He is not though.}


1.) 18 Jun 2017 08:59:26
Is he still going to be No.1 eds?

{Ed001's Note - it will not be like that, I expect Migs to have the shirt but only so long as he performs.}


2.) 18 Jun 2017 09:19:25
With ward staying that means we have 3 decent - good keepers challenging for 1 place. However to start challenging for major trophies I would prefer us to have a top class-world class keeper in there starting week in week out. Scoring isn't a problem it's keeping the ball out after the opposition have only 2 shots a game.


3.) 18 Jun 2017 09:42:54
I think butland would be a great signing for us . Best English goalkeeper I think . Let karius and ward go out on loan . Mignolet as number 2.


4.) 18 Jun 2017 10:34:30
Agree about Butland Jonboy.


5.) 18 Jun 2017 10:56:45
I don't think we will sign a keeper but now would be the time to buy Butland, his stock is low after a injury plagued season.


6.) 18 Jun 2017 11:44:10
Liverpool signing a goalkeeper that needs building back up? Sounds like a recipe for a ruined career to me.


7.) 18 Jun 2017 11:51:11
I still think karius is good enough, he's hardly had a chance.


8.) 18 Jun 2017 13:39:19
What on earth would we need 4 goalkeepers for?


9.) 18 Jun 2017 15:22:41
Karius, last season was ok on shot stopping and distribution.

His ability on crosses and general mental strength were AT THE TIME below par.
He's a young lad who moved to a new club in a new country.

Whether throwing him in as No.1 was not the right decision especially as he got injured in pre-season.


10.) 18 Jun 2017 16:26:57
From what we've seen karius isn't good enough. Arguably we have the worst keeper in the top six except maybe city. Jack but land would be a great signing imo. Saying that we'd be in europa leage if not for mignolet. I think he has the ability to improve.


11.) 18 Jun 2017 17:03:09
But, johnnyskies, and it's a big 'but, ' is what we have seen truly representative of what he can achieve?


12.) 18 Jun 2017 17:22:34
And when he gets his chance the fans get off his back and give himself time to make it his own.


13.) 18 Jun 2017 19:44:25
Omg the election drama has completely thrown me off football - I can only dealing with one thing stressing me out at a time! Ward is staying? What is the club smoking?


14.) 18 Jun 2017 19:50:19
Johnny if by "what you have seen" in a pathetic amount 10 games, show that Karius is not good enough then you should never be a manager or academy coach cos you would be shipping out players left right and center cos you simply lack the patience to work with them esp. the talented ones as Karius is clearly talented.

As for those calling for Butland, a player who has gone almost a season without playing should give their heads a wobble.


15.) 18 Jun 2017 21:38:41
Brussels-You saying Karius wasn't poor in those 10 games?
Some players don't even get 10 games to prove themselves. It's a cut throat business and if we gave all players a prolonged period in the team regardless of performance then the team wouldn't be very successful.
That being said I'm not writing Karius off, I think he's got a good chance of being our number 1 (mainly because Mignolet is poor) but from what we have seen at Liverpool it hasn't been great.


16.) 18 Jun 2017 23:22:55
10 games is nowhere near enough. You also have to consider he was a young keeper in his debut season coming coming back from a broken hand. Migs was still poor when he first got his place back. It wasn't until the the end of the season when the gk staff changed the routine of training that migs showed improvements. We haven't seen what effect that has had on karius yet. Basically give the young lad a fair chance.


17.) 19 Jun 2017 01:25:44
Top top keepers establish themselves in first ten games. I don't think karius has done that. I haven't written him off but wold welcome improvement in that position.

{Ed001's Note - Buffon didn't. Grobbelaar didn't. In fact I doubt you could name one top top keeper that did.}


18.) 19 Jun 2017 10:41:49
some of the greatest keepers in history were pretty awful in their first year - Buffon, Shilton, Toldo all dropped in and out of first team in first 1-2 years. I think Oliver Khan is the only one who played consistently in first year for Bayern but then he had no competition at the time.


19.) 19 Jun 2017 11:14:51
Just like to add to Nevada's post, think back at how much we were laughing at Utd in De Gea's first season?!

Some people have such short memories.


20.) 19 Jun 2017 11:46:46
Massimo Taibi established himself in his first game and then it all fell apart 😆.

Ed001,
Everyone is always asking Ed002 for her list of players that Liverpool are looking at. Any chance you can do the same from what you've been told? Time permitting of course. I'm sure most would like to have a gander at what you know!

Tristan

{Ed001's Note - I was hoping to get time today, but not had the chance, I have added it to my to do list to try and get on to it during the week.}


1.) 13 Feb 2016 15:30:01
Thanks Ed can't wait to see it mate.


2.) 13 Feb 2016 20:45:10
That's what she said.

Would anyone like to go back to a time when there was no transfer window? Or do people prefer the entertainment and suspense of it all?

Tristan

1.) 07 Jun 2017 17:17:18
I doubt there are many who can remember the days before the transfer window.
It used to run from June to March back in the day.


2.) 07 Jun 2017 17:27:23
I can, and although the TW system is exciting, I do prefer going back to buying at any time, means the excitement is spread through the season rather than concentrated.

I'm sure it was Ed001/ 002 who said the window was brought in to protect lower league clubs who, if they were doing particularly well, could end up having their team picked apart by higher teams who wanted their players.

That makes sense, and stops cup/ league runs being disrupted by players being sold.


3.) 07 Jun 2017 18:06:22
With the way football is now, the richest clubs will just throw money at their squads in March to go for trophies. This would lead to oversized squads and no youth progression.
I think they should change the transfer window to just 1 month. 1st - 30th July then January the same. This means all teams will have their squads set up before the league kicks off and if injuries happen, it will give youth a chance.

{Ed002's Note - Squads are limited in size - you cannot have oversized squads.}

Hello eds and fellow football fans.
With regards to the latest Joey Barton indiscretion.
I think we can all say that he's a bit of a plonker for what he did but, ignoring his past, was his sentence too harsh?
Also with what he said about the leagues being involved with sponsorship by betting firms (LFC also heavily involved) can we, or should we, see a sway away from such involvement by them?
It is rather hypocritical, I find personally, that they ban and fine someone for being involved in a practice that they're prepared to take money from and openly encourage by doing so.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
Ed001 from a fan perspective and, if you care to get involved, ed002 from a business perspective?

Tristan

{Ed002's Note - Quite frankly he has been stupid but he should have been offered help. The ban is particularly harsh and refects previous problems. As for the involvement of betting companies in sponsorship, some clubs shy away from such companies but others are happy to be involved.}


1.) 27 Apr 2017 17:56:57
I don't see the argument about sponsorship to be honest.
How many years were we sponsored by Carlsberg?
Plenty of alcoholics in and out of football. No-one bat an eyelid.
Barton has been a fool, time for his agent and the PFA to step up and get him help.


2.) 27 Apr 2017 18:32:09
Barton needs help true, but it doesn't stop him being a scumbag that needs to learn and accept this every moment in his life doesn't exist in isolation. He can't claim he's a nice thoughtful guy after beating rubbish out of lads on the street and getting into fights with team mates, he can't intentionally start fights on the field to try and get people sent off or go studs up time after time and claim he's a fair player and he can't get yet another ban for a major footballing offense and claim it's too hard because it's his first offence when it's simply the first attempt of it's specific kind.

Not to mention he bet on his own team losing. Which people may say was because he wasnt involved in the squad, but you don't know he wasnt giving key players a kick in training, or betting cause he knew their top striker was not getting kicks on target all week, or that their keeper wouldn't be playing for personal reasons etc and betting accordingly. Just cause he couldn't actually make a loss happen doesn't mean he couldn't play with the odds!

{Ed025's Note - im with you hjikie barton is a nasty piece of work, prison is place he should be mate..


3.) 27 Apr 2017 19:57:14
The problem with Barton, is that he knows just enough big words to make people think he has a little sense. He's just a hooligan with a dictionary.


 

 

27 Apr 2017 17:09:53
Everyone's first memory of their first time at Anfield?
Mine was 1993 versus Swindon.
I lived in Hereford, my dad gave me £20 and me and my best mate took a minibus, arranged in the local paper down.
It got us travel, a ticket into the Kop, scarf, programme and a bag of chips from the Dolphin (? ) afterwards.
Finished 2-2 and I'll never forget the crush when we scored no a chap standing behind us, put his arms round me and my friend, onto the bollards, and seemed to hold everyone back. We stood the other side of it after that.
We were 13 at the time, I'm not sure if our parents knew what they were giving us money for, but it was a hell of a day.
Went back twice more that season, Manchester City and Newcastle United. It was the season after that the Kop was all seated.
I'm so glad I got to stand in it.

Tristan

1.) 27 Apr 2017 18:35:52
2013. First bonus I ever got at work. A season ticket holder I know went travelling and let me buy tickets for two games together for my dad and I, paid for everything (cleaned out the bonus and then some but was a dream come true) . First was West Ham, second was Cardiff. Arrived 3 hours early, wondered around until the doors opened and then took our seats in an empty stadium and watched it fill. What a day.

{Ed025's Note - sounds good mate..


2.) 27 Apr 2017 22:32:32
Mine was Against qpr a couple of years ago. My mate has a season ticket with his dad and brothers, but they couldn't go so got to go instead. Got to see Gerrards last league goal at anfield. Was a good day out.


3.) 27 Apr 2017 22:28:42
We were against napoli, the atmosphere was electric with banter going between the sets of fans. We went 1-0 down and was thinking the worst (first game at anfield being a loss) then stevie g joined the fray and banged a hat trick.

Wont be forgetting that in a very long time!

Just like to wish the Eds the best of luck.
We've just released our annual figures.

Tristan

1.) 01 Mar 2017 11:07:47
Just read about it then - it sounds good to me. Club has reduced it's debt drastically, it is now far more secure and operating within reasonable parameters it can afford and is growing continually - the commercial side of the club certainly seems to be paying dividends with the new, more professional approach the owners have taken since joining. Our on field form is bad and that is something well known but this report, about our off field stuff, seems like good news to me.

{Ed002's Note - You don't understand about the debt. You need to look very carefully at the word "external".}


2.) 01 Mar 2017 11:40:38
Personally don't understand the likes of "external", do you see these set of results as disappointing then?

{Ed002's Note - No, the results are fine and the loss is less than expected.}


3.) 01 Mar 2017 14:27:23
Without reading the accounts in detail, I would assume that the "external" issue is that the amount of money we owe 3rd parties has fallen. However, I would imagine that a bit of digging will sho that our "internal" (for want of a better word! ) debt has risen, i. e. FSG have been loaning us money to cover losses etc. Famously we were losing £1m per week then they arrived.


4.) 01 Mar 2017 19:01:02
The club has posted an annual loss of £20 mill which I am sure would be ignored on this site conveniently.


5.) 01 Mar 2017 19:46:47
Not at all, Harry. 20m is a lot less than the 50m that the club was hemorrhaging every season so not complaining about that, my friend.


 

 

01 Dec 2016 20:42:21
Hi ed001,
If you're about, what's the general thoughts on young Harry Wilson at Liverpool, do you know?
Been doing really well, and captain, of the U23s this season. Not had any sort of look in on the first team squad so far.
Is that just a case of not being rushed after his last season and a bit of niggles?
Hope everyone is having a great 1st of the month!

Tristan

{Ed001's Note - he got overhyped early on, so he has been protected since then as there were signs it got to him. Now he has settled down and got over the injuries, things are going well and a lot is expected of him. He is on the verge of getting a chance in the first team as well.}


1.) 01 Dec 2016 20:56:06
That's good to hear.
Thank you ed 😊.

{Ed001's Note - you are very welcome mate.}


2.) 01 Dec 2016 23:53:37
He's the one I really wanna see, Ed because I've heard so much about him.


3.) 01 Dec 2016 23:39:49
am i right in thinking wilson, ojo and woodburn all play in the same / similar position? and as such, despite it being really exciting, hamper each others chances?


4.) 02 Dec 2016 00:40:03
I always about the young lads, but especially more so for the young british lads. don't know why, I just have a stereotyped view that the young UK lads seem more likely to get caught up in their own hype before they actually ebcome something.


5.) 02 Dec 2016 00:55:09
The youth we have coming through at the moment is one of the reasons I hope we don't sign a winger/ attacking mid in January. It would be a real smack in the face to the likes of Wilson, Brannagan, Ojo, Woodburn etc. I'd much prefer to see some of them lads get a chance in the absence of Mané due to AFCON and others due to injuries. Though with the amount of young players pushing for a chance in the first team, they'll have to impress if/ when they get a chance.


6.) 02 Dec 2016 10:39:55
Heard plenty about this young Wilson but never seen him play just seen clips. Let's hope the lad keeps working hard and gets his chance soon. We're in a great situation at the moment in regards to our youngsters just to name a few, Trent, Ojo, Woodbury, Wilson. Not forgetting the rest of course. Must be the best set of young lads we've had in a long time.


7.) 02 Dec 2016 10:40:21
Woodbury. auto correct.


8.) 02 Dec 2016 10:40:33
I give up lol.

It's a shock to see Lacazette go somewhere else considering Atletico were the "club of his heart".

I never said they never spent any money, I said they probably don't "like the idea" of it.
To say they like the idea of replacing him with a big money signing is ridiculous.
They'd like the idea of replacing him with someone from the academy, I'm sure.
Spending £60 or £70 million on a player isn't going to have them jumping through hoops.

I'm pretty sure that the owners don't "like the idea" of spending a lot of money.
They may be resigned to the fact, but I doubt it's one they are rubbing their hands with glee over.

Correct me if I'm wrong but, if he does sign for us, it has to be as a first team player due to our little error of judgement and subsequent ban on signing youth players?

For a start, comparing player is ridiculous. Everyone matures at a different rate.
Secondly, didn't they only land 11 hours previous? Maybe they were a bit tired?
It was a silly end of season friendly that meant nothing except money. Should never have been done in my opinion. Or at least let them have a few days rest first. Asking for injuries to happen.
