Hi Ed's

Is there a chance Moreno will leave this window?

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed001's Note - unlikely, the club have put a new contract offer on the table for him, though I think he will choose to leave.}


1.) 11 Jan 2019 09:49:53
Cheers mate, he has been talking about all of his offers he has and said he won’t sign new contract, or st least that’s what I’ve read lol. Is it we won’t let him leave as we have little cover?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}


2.) 11 Jan 2019 11:34:28
I don’t know if you agree Ed but I think he would he more or a reliability than one of the reserves. At least they would be committed to tackling and concentrate!

{Ed001's Note - I would happily let him leave, he is a nice enough lad but lacks a brain.}


3.) 11 Jan 2019 11:39:07
What's the business/ sporting sense in offering him a new contract?
He can't leave on loan or be sold, or that would've happened over the past couple of seasons. And he isn't good enough to be a backup.
Just let him leave.


4.) 11 Jan 2019 13:29:04
Think the idea of a contract extension was to allow us to get a transfer fee for him the coming summer.
Personally I think we should just let it be and let him go in the summer. There is always a possibility that no club would be willing to pay a decent transfer fee for Moreno, and we end up stuck with him for the foreseeable future.


5.) 11 Jan 2019 21:27:39
Question would be who are the options to replace him if he should go in the summer?


6.) 11 Jan 2019 21:56:53
Thought he was great when he first game scored a cracking goal against spurs then it all went downhill.


7.) 12 Jan 2019 00:20:21
Adam Lewis.


8.) 12 Jan 2019 00:24:23
All for one of Lewis, Juanma, or another youngster get a few chances instead.


9.) 12 Jan 2019 00:08:41
I think the logic is to keep him for another year until the youth players are closer to the first team.

We don't want to sign another LB as presumably it'll be on at least a 2 year contract and block the route for the youngsters.

He is a liability but you can see some sense from the club's side in keeping him on the bench for 1 more year.


10.) 12 Jan 2019 04:46:56
Completely agree brommer. I think that would be ideal and ruthless for the club but useless for morenos own career progression.


11.) 12 Jan 2019 06:22:45
So was it a better option to keep Clyne as fullback cover and let Moreno leave on free or peanuts.
Who would have been a better backup.


12.) 12 Jan 2019 11:27:06
bhav_reds - Clyne asked if he could leave to get more playing time, Moreno didn't.


 

 

08 Jan 2019 12:27:43
Hi Ed001

I hope your well mate. Not sure you've been asked or not but do you see us signing anyone this window? Appreciate your out of touch a little as you've got family staying with you but do you even know of us working on anything at the minute?

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed001's Note - I am not expecting much, if anything to happen with ins. Depends a lot on the outs though.}


1.) 08 Jan 2019 17:11:27
Ok mate fair enough, ties in with what Klopp has been saying tbh. Thank you.


2.) 08 Jan 2019 17:31:22
Probably pushing my luck Ed mate lol, any chance of a little update on transfers in general from your end please once your parents have returned safely and you have started your diet like the rest of us🤣. Sharkopod is great but would love summin from you mate, and you certainly know your sh#t. 😘.

{Ed001's Note - I will try mate.}

Hi Ed's

Do we have interest in Bristol City's Lloyd Kelly?

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed002's Note - It is an interesting question. I cannot say whether or not there is any firm interest in Lloyd Kelly, but I can say that Liverpool have looked at a couple of younger CBs as I have explained and other potential options like both Lloyd Kelly and Aidan Wilson who have been "recommended" to the club by an "agent" who may be open to cutting corners. More than that I cannot say without some issues arising.}


1.) 31 Dec 2018 22:56:38
Never heard of him, is he any good?


2.) 31 Dec 2018 23:17:08
Ok Ed cheers mate appreciate your help.


3.) 31 Dec 2018 23:57:07
Lloyd Kelly is still very young, 20yo i believe. He is tall, a very good athlete though need to bulk up. Has good technical ability but needs to work on reading of the game and his defensive skills as he tends to use his physical attributes more at the moment. Currently he plays at LB though he is expected to play in CB in 4-5 years time (a bit like how Gomez has progressed you can say) .

Seemed to be highly rated in Bristol and at England U21 level.


4.) 02 Jan 2019 18:03:21
Hi, just a quick one on Lloyd kelly, I’m a season ticket holder at Bristol city and kelly is a local lad who is highly thought of, very quick, lovely left peg, tall and strong, but seems too relaxed sometimes, he is prone to making quite a few mistakes, but he’s very young and still learning, and I agree with the Gomez comparisons, he’s played centre half a fair few times for city already this season and he’s certainly one who looks like he has the potential to move up a level.


 

 

21 Dec 2018 17:14:06
Rumours that Fabinho not I the squad tonight.

Virgilfc_2018

1.) 21 Dec 2018 17:50:53
What's your source for this? I can't find anything anywhere suggesting he's picked up an injury.


2.) 21 Dec 2018 18:34:21
Nothing in the public media. Hope your source is wrong.
The only thing I found is one media reporting for an offer from PSG, BS I call.


3.) 21 Dec 2018 18:59:12
PSG would make sense if the lad wants to go and Rabiot is coming the other way. Just trying to think outside the box.


4.) 21 Dec 2018 19:01:28
You probably shouldn’t rely on Twitter so much.


5.) 21 Dec 2018 19:01:32
Correct marto. Nothing wrong with him. He starts today.


6.) 21 Dec 2018 19:02:21
And he starts!


7.) 21 Dec 2018 19:02:52
He is in the squad.


8.) 21 Dec 2018 19:16:53
A midfield of him Hendo and Keita.


9.) 22 Dec 2018 00:37:53
What a load of cobblers.


10.) 22 Dec 2018 00:42:06
A rumour shown to be nonsense in less than 2 hours. That could be a record.


 

 

17 Dec 2018 16:02:35
Dear Ed002

I hope you are well and ready for the festive period. Was just wondering when we can expect the Sharkopod please.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Ed001

Was just thinking ahead to the summer, along way off I know but with Sturridge and Origi and Lallana all likely moving would it be fair to say we will need some forward reinforcements?

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed001's Note - if they all went, yes.}


 

 

15 Jan 2019 16:44:37
Having had time to reflect, I'm confident we will be fine with the additional injury to Trent. We have Milner, Fabs who can slot in at RB then Gonez back after a couple of games. Gini will be fine and we have plenty of options in the midfield area.

Virgilfc_2018

1.) 15 Jan 2019 17:21:48
Thankfully we have Fabinho who can play a number of positions, without him at this time, we'd of being pretty screwed. He's proved he can work in defence so imo there's no harm done, we'll be alright 👍. Bring on Palace.


2.) 15 Jan 2019 17:46:56
Luvky our injuries are in defence where we got cover, if it was our front three we would be in trouble, fingers crossed that's our injuries over with.


3.) 15 Jan 2019 18:54:20
Spot on, Scousetim. What killed us down the stretch last season was that the injuries we had were ALL in midfield. Now, we have injuries in defence where we have either other defenders who can cover there or midfielders who can cover there as well. It is also good to know that Gomez will be back in about 10 days and Matip is already back and raring to go (knock on wood) .


4.) 15 Jan 2019 19:49:53
Agree with all reply’s, we is all good. I hope 🤞.


5.) 15 Jan 2019 21:16:55
I think someone said it higher up the page but just imagine how Spurs feel. Son’s last game before the Asia Cup and their one man team Kane gets a 2 monther! Now there’s something to moan about!
At this point in their season it could ruin their whole season.
TAA being out is a minor irritation in comparison.


 

 

13 Jan 2019 22:30:44
Interesting reading through tonight's posts. Macca saying "We will have to add a striker of quality who can play across the front 3 positions, I personally think it will be Werner and maybe a top fullback and if I am being greedy a number 10".

Sounds like Macca thinks we will go for Werner?

Thanks.

Virgilfc_2018

1.) 14 Jan 2019 01:37:50
It what Ed002 says is true and we don't have too much cash to splash unless any first team players are sold, then a versatile fullback/ winger like Laxalt (who will be quite cheap) and a rotation option for our front 3 will be all we can expect. We don't need a CAM as Shaq can play there and OX will be back soon. I'd also have Grabara and Kelleher fighting over the NO.2 Gk slot than waste money on a aged backup GK.
We could easily sell 5-6 unwanted squad players like Origi, Sturridge, Clyne, Moreno, Lallana, Ings, Chirivella etc and replace with 2 quality signings and integrating Wilson, Philips, Lewis, Brewster into the first team squad.

{Ed0333's Note - good little post that mate. You can come again.


2.) 14 Jan 2019 02:07:29
I don't think Macca was saying we will be going for him. Rather that he hopes we will.

{Ed0333's Note - oh damn I just put my life savings on Werner signing this week.


3.) 14 Jan 2019 05:48:34
We have sold Solanki already, maybe another 2 or 3 soon. Why are we assuming that we would only buy if we sell a starter (player from the starting 11)?


4.) 14 Jan 2019 06:11:37
To get our hands on a forward like Werner who costs around 50 million euros, the club's going to have to do a mass clearout of the forward line (Origi, Sturridge, Ings, Kent) . Its still a decent amount of money raised and we need a player like Werner to allow for effective rotation across the frontline. I am tired of seeing us get kicked out of the domestic cups early on year after year. There is a lot of potential to improve our squad without breaking the bank. It will just need some smart planning from Klopp and co.


5.) 14 Jan 2019 07:22:26
I really don’t understand the love in with Werner - he was awful in the World Cup and don’t think he fits our system at all.

Give youth a chance, Jones, Brewster, Wilson or Woodburn, they won’t turn in to great players sitting in the reserves.


6.) 14 Jan 2019 07:26:32
No not at all Indian Buzzer . a lot will depend where we finish at the end of the season. If we win epl and have a good run in CL then I'm sure will have no problem acquiring klopp's targets. Neither I see 50m euros a big deal as u in today's market compare to what clubs earn in CL Tv money sponsors etc in today's world.


7.) 14 Jan 2019 08:29:44
I honestly don't think we have been losing in cup competitions because of player personnel. It's simply the club's approach to them, as to why we haven't progressed at all. That's it. And if you listen carefully to Klopp's press interviews before the Wolves game, you'll realize that when he was talking about what a busy December it was, and how tired the players were, he was setting everyone up to see 9 changes for a game that he did not expect to win. Maybe if we get he title (finally) this year, Klopp will say "hey, I now need one of those Cup trophies as well", next year. 😉.


8.) 14 Jan 2019 09:01:28
Andy Fields: because Solanke wasnt even playing. if were getting someone whos not even playing it better be a guy to keep all our players in cotton wools after each game. especially Van Dijk!


9.) 14 Jan 2019 09:32:58
OK I'm confused to as to how you guys are getting that Werner is going to cost x mount it doesn't work like that again Werner would not be coming to sit on the bench.


10.) 14 Jan 2019 09:57:45
I haven't seen Wilson this season, but he has been getting good reviews at Derby. I know the Championship isn't the premiership, but Neves has done well with Wolves. Personally, I think Wilson has to be with the team next season.
Also, I'm not sure I'll go for Werner. I'll prefer someone that is more versatile.
I think we need to get a forward next season. Salah, Mane and Firmino have been playing lots of games. We're lucky they're Ronaldo/ Messi kind of durable, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to rest them from time to time.

{Ed025's Note - wilson is not the answer realtofel, unless you can bring him on just to take free kicks like they do in american football, the rest of his game is awful mate..


11.) 14 Jan 2019 10:22:27
I live just up the a38 from Derbys ground and there are lots of Derby and Forest fans around here, they all say that Wilson has a terrific free kick and passing range but he's way too light just yet and gets knocked off too easily, they also say he goes missing when there is work and tracking back to do,
The reports all clearly give credit to his goals which is obviously going to happen but in reality it looks like he needs to fill out and have another season somewhere like Derby while he's at least developing his game, he tries a few tricks too many apparently too.
He's young yet, let's not clamour for him to be the next big thing too soon.


 

 

13 Jan 2019 07:43:41
Good morning all

A good feeling waking up knowing we are top and gained another 3 points yesterday. Who was your MOTM? For me it was either Fabs or Salah.

Virgilfc_2018

1.) 13 Jan 2019 12:47:21
Quite a few good performers yesterday to be fair, we kept going and kept another clean sheet. If I had to pick I thought Gini and Firmino worked really hard so one those for me.


2.) 13 Jan 2019 13:33:30
Salah all day mate. He was Messi esc when he dropped off and started dictating play, hazard but twice as fast. Should've scored again though,
Fab was great at blocking etc but positionally caught out when they dropped the ball in behind him, a better striker would've punished us.


3.) 13 Jan 2019 14:04:39
Fab, all day at CB for me, mate. He was immense back there.


 

 

11 Jan 2019 13:22:57
Ed001, Klopp has said in his presser that Matip and Hendo are in full training. Would you assume from that they both are available to play? I thought Matip was a few weeks away that's all.

Virgilfc_2018

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, Matip was due back on the 19th so it is only a week early.}


1.) 11 Jan 2019 14:09:16
Cheers mate good news, You think he might put him in the bench though and play Fabs at CB.


2.) 11 Jan 2019 19:45:01
If matip is fit he should play.

Fab played at CB in a game that we showed no desire to win. I think going out of both domestic cups early is a blessing in disguise.

Fab is looking like a top notch CM and a decent CB. So play him in his best position; CM. He has that direct attacking sense and confidence on the ball that Can had only I would rather have Fabhino.

Saying all that, he may not even play, milly, gini, Keita, shaqiri and Henderson are all fit.


3.) 11 Jan 2019 20:11:46
Robbie, it is not that simple. Matip may be back in training BUT not match fit for tmrw as the game may have come too early for him. As we all know, a player who has not played in a while needs to be able to train over a number of days consistently and at the same tempo over a period of days, to be considered. This is how Klopp rolls since he got here.

Matip may be available or has recovered from BUT Klopp may think he can play Fab in defence cos he would have been preparing for this eventuality since Wolves and the team's preparation all week will be based on that. Most importantly, Fab is fully fit and match fit. Matip is not. So IMO, Fab should start in CB with Matip prolly on the bench should something happen. Just my opinion.


4.) 11 Jan 2019 21:03:09
Anyone who has had a broken collar bone will know that Matip will be feeling that injury for a while yet, and it won't take much to damage it again. I don't see Klopp being too hasty with him.


5.) 11 Jan 2019 22:19:02
Fair answer red wolf. I'm not sure why your comment has 2 thumbs down, you are right. I misunderstood, didn't know matip was so early back from injury. Hhhmmm? So who do we play at CB? Van dijke of course. I guess it has to be fabhino. I have heard previously, someone said (klopp I think) that Henderson could play in any defensive position. I think he would do well as a CB.


6.) 12 Jan 2019 10:30:55
Many thanks for your understanding, Robbie. Fab has to play at CB until one of the CB's are fully fit to start, I'm afraid. As for Hendo, I don't see him as a good fit at CB cos tho, he is the best mid. at LFC in terms of positional awareness and good sense of anticipation to snuff out attacks, the CB position is a diff. beast. On the other hand, Fab is a natural defender, a fullback hence, he played in he back 4 before his switch to DM hence, he would be better suited for the CB position based on this. Just my opinion.

MMP your as eager as me and lots on here mate to find out who we are looking st signing, truth of the matter is it’s doubtful much will happen mate. Ed002 has done a Sharkopod which gives an insight. We are not interested in Werner Or Depay. Laxsalt is of interest but not likely for January.
