Anyone know of or seen anything of this fullback Juanma we are supposedly signing?

Westwood666

1.) 11 Aug 2016 02:33:54
He's only 19 so he is probably not what you thought he was going to be.


2.) 11 Aug 2016 04:47:16
Confirmed signing after successful week trial for the U23 team, not first teamer yet and not expected to be this season. It's a left back, just not ready this season.


3.) 11 Aug 2016 08:47:32
Leftbackinthechangies?


4.) 12 Aug 2016 14:22:52
Chilwell was only 18/ 19.


5.) 12 Aug 2016 16:02:29
Watched him play for 60 minutes in the flesh for the U21's against MK Dons. He is very fast and utilised his speed to make a handful of recovery tackles. He also has a nice touch and is neat in possession. His positioning was very weak though and he over ran the ball on a few occasions. Looks a fairly decent, attacking young left back. Whilst I doubt he will get much if any first team action, with our complete lack of depth there, who knows.


6.) 13 Aug 2016 00:55:14
Would love him to be a dark horse and end up a first team regular a la Bellerin. Would certainly cure our left back headache.

Afternoon eds.
Are we switching our interest in a striker from Benteke to Jovetic?

Westwood666

{Ed002's Note - No.}


1.) 06 Jul 2015 16:50:31
Not sure if he would be interested but Lacazette would be a better fit for our team and when you look at the rumoured transfer fees for him and Benteke it seems a clear one to me.

That said whoever we sign I'll be right behind.


2.) 06 Jul 2015 17:15:52
I totally agree dcal, but i can't see him coming to us. If he doesn't move this summer and has another good season I think he'll be able to pick his own club this time next year.


3.) 06 Jul 2015 20:08:53
I dearly hope we do not sign either of them. If Liverpool are in a position to spend 32m plus wages, then surely there are better achievable options in the current market


4.) 06 Jul 2015 22:23:45
Psynwa - go on then suggest some, that's the whole point genius. If you can't add content and just want to be negative then go play with your toys.


5.) 06 Jul 2015 23:52:03
The people who think Lacazette and Higuain are likely to come to Liverpool are deluded.I do however agree that Benteke is not what we need and we would be better off sticking with what we've got


6.) 07 Jul 2015 02:45:28
I look like to think that Aubamyang, forgive spelling, might be prised away from Dortmund for the amount of money that's being mentioned for Benteke, but nothing's been said about him being a target so wishful thinking I guess. I agree with Dcal, who else is there we could get? Maybe promote Jerome Sinclair? Better hope studge stays fit I guess.


7.) 07 Jul 2015 03:19:47
Higuain and Lacazette won't come to us, we CAN'T stick with what we've got because we need a new quality center forward and there are no real options other than Benteke


8.) 07 Jul 2015 07:35:47
Although I don't think he's worth 32m, I don't see any other option than Benteke. Goal every other game for a team like Villa? With players like Firmino and Coutinho around him I expect him to bing in a few more.


9.) 07 Jul 2015 09:19:19
Benteke is only 24. He's a proven goalscorer in the epl and a real nightmare for defenders. With new coaching staff in place we are obviously going to adopt new ways of playing ball. In part because we have been found out.

So please people, keep the whining to yourselves and support the beast. He might just be exactly what we need.


10.) 07 Jul 2015 10:54:57
I don't mind either. In fact if we could get Jovetic that'd be great because he's half the price. Altho Benteke's performance and form can much clearly be seen than Jove's. Poor thing warming benches at City. Great talent!


11.) 07 Jul 2015 18:31:18
My cousin is a Citeh fan and he hates Jovetic. Says he's lazy. And injury prone. I trust his judgement as he's very knowledgable.

The only positive is that a player exchange would drop the cash price for Stirling and therefore, we have to play QPR less.

{Ed001's Note - not true, the value would be the same.}


 

 

14 Feb 2015 21:33:01
Hi eds. hope all is well.
Quick question, hope you might have an inkling. I would assume the squad needs drastically trimming down in the summer, especially in the striker department.
My question is, with BR seemingly now realising he needs an apparent "plan B" do you think it's likely that one of either Lambert or Mario will be let go, if not both? I consider Borini already gone tbh. I only ask as Mario seems to at least trying recently, and Lambert seems out the picture altogether.
Thanks in advance!

Westwood666

{Ed002's Note - I think Lambert would probably be the firs out of the door. Others need to go to make space for Origi and Ings. Balotelli is keen to stay a few years if other options are not available.}


1.) 14 Feb 2015 21:55:51
So Ed, you're basically saying there's a good chance Ings will be a Liverpool player next season? I'd take that!

{Ed002's Note - See above.}


2.) 15 Feb 2015 04:56:35
If Ed002 just said Rickie may have to make way for Origi and Ings, that implies that Ed002 believes there's a good shout Ings will be a Liverpool player in the summer!


3.) 15 Feb 2015 06:23:05
I would suspect we'd try to move on Aspas and Borini for sure and perhaps Lambert as well. Not sure about Yesil, but he probably needs to move on as well.

Sturridge, Ings, Balotelli, Origi seems like a fair amount of depth to me.


4.) 15 Feb 2015 09:24:15
RDL, i would be happy with Sturridge, Ings, Origi and Balo as well but only if it is the Balo that we saw on the pitch in the last two games. Ings and Origi have little experience on the big stage and pairing them with an established goal scorer will take the pressure off them.


5.) 15 Feb 2015 04:58:14
hi Ed002 regards balo, you say he maybe keen to stay does this co-inside with his last to games has the penny dropped. what do you think or no? I think he could be a good player for us certainly looks good with sturridge. also is brendon starting to like him?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool want to sell him but are asking far too much money. His agent says the only other option is for him to stay. I think the club need to decide what they want to do with all of these strikers.}


6.) 15 Feb 2015 12:23:02
I think Mario has started to improve recently more because we have a proper striker back on the pitch. Mario is best played in a support role as opposed to being the main man. As long as Sturridge is there, he will continue to look good.


7.) 15 Feb 2015 19:37:14
My personal preference would be to offload Mario, Indian Buzzer, but I can't see anyone really wanting him so I think he may be here another year.


8.) 16 Feb 2015 10:34:10
hello Ed002, is that 'far too much money' more than what we paid for him?

{Ed002's Note - The amount is unimportant, but it is far too much. Liverpool will have a better idea about Ings in a week or two - Moyes is trying to get him to sign a pre-contract.}

23 Nov 2017 04:30:27
Can someone please tell where the hell Andrew Robertson is? Why is he not even making match day squads? Have I missed something? Does Klopp not like him?

Westwood666

1.) 23 Nov 2017 06:14:37
He isn't in the squad because he has to prove himself and also because Moreno has started the season well. If last nights performance impacts Morenos form then perhaps it is a chance for Robertson to stale a claim.


2.) 23 Nov 2017 06:31:42
Robertson is not the answer to our LB problems. A backup option at best. Moreno is no great shakes but he fits better into the team than Robertson who does not have much of an understanding with Mane on the left flank. He was simply a cheaper option signed as Klopp wanted to spend big on VVD and Keita.


3.) 23 Nov 2017 07:24:02
Moreno has been decent this season which is an improvement. Where people get the he is playing well or has been one of our best players bewilders me. He is part of a defence that has conceded 17 goals in 12 games. In the 3 seasons he has been here his bad games have outweighed his good. For 1 of them seasons he was second choice left back to a central midfielder. But yeah he's had 7-8 decent games this season so let's stop questioning him as surely he is the answer to our left back problem.


4.) 23 Nov 2017 11:40:21
Jayden,

Good point, well made!

As you say, 7-8 games good games over 3+ seasons do not justify a regular place in the 11.

Have to disagree with you over Moron-o being ‘decent’ this season; he’s been better than normal, for him, so IMO that’s average and only the minimum requirement.

Its not enough to warrant a prolonged 1st team place though and changes in this position simply MUST be of the highest priority come January.


5.) 23 Nov 2017 12:44:22
Jayden and Jim, the logic your using is the same logic that kept Rooney in the United team and the England squad for years after he wasn't good enough, sure Moreno has been poor in past seasons but he's been decent this season and our best option at LB.


6.) 23 Nov 2017 13:31:48
But he's not our best option at left back
And far from it Robertson is a much better defender, and right now that is what we need somebody who can defend.


7.) 23 Nov 2017 14:26:54
T-Diggity,

I fail to see why your “Rooney being in the Utd and England team for years after he wasn’t good enough” comment has anything to do with Liverpool’s LB situation? Let alone it making any sense!

Our ‘logic’ is that Moron-o is simply not of a good enough standard for us. if we have aspirations of challenging for the top 4, let alone the league title, therefore must be replaced as soon as possible.

Teams know he is vulnerable, will continue to target him and it makes no sense not to address that as a matter of urgency.

Robinson deserves to be given a chance, I’ll reserve judgement on him until he’s had a number of successive appearances.

As for Moron-o, he’s had 3 years at the club and has consistently shown he’s not good enough. with a few “decent” games mixed in.

He, along with Mignolet, Matip and Klavan, is not a Liverpool-standard player!


8.) 23 Nov 2017 14:35:06
if Klopp had brought in a quality left back, then that player would be playing, simple,
only he didnt, Klopp needs a word in his ear .


9.) 23 Nov 2017 16:16:48
...............

{Ed002's Note - We are not going to get involved with such matters, sorry. Try nationalenquirer.com or fwi.co.uk.}


10.) 23 Nov 2017 18:52:12
Jim, the reasoning for my comment was that Rooney was shoehorned in to United and England sides that he wasn't fit to play in for years based on his performances from previous years, despite the fact he was past it. You're judging Moreno on his previous seasons at Liverpool. Sure, he can be a bit of a liability but from what I've seen so far this season he's has improved going forward, which I get doesn't really factor in to this argument, but more importantly he seems to be defending a lot better this year, especially as he seems to have cut out that silly trait of tackling from the wrong side. Don't get me wrong, Moreno has infuriated me in the past but I'm sick of seeing people blast players for one bad 45 minutes when he has shown a solid improvement this season. I too would like to see more of Robertson to see what he's made of, but I really don't see the point of casting players out based on 45 minutes of an otherwise good season. He may not be of the quality we need to win titles but he's a player at our club and we should support him, haven't players like Lucas shown you that they can turn it around?


 

 

03 Oct 2017 22:12:57
Question for Ed002 if your about.

When a manager is sacked from a position, is it usual practice for them to continue being payed at a previously stipulated percentage of their contract until they either find another position or the original contract length runs out, or is it usually a one off payment or an option of either? Example of Brendan Rodgers and David Moyes spring to mind with the vast sums mentioned in the media of their payments when made sacked. If any of these are correct, would the same apply to players? For example had Man City fires Tevez when he was refusing to play, would they have had to continue paying him until he found another club?

Westwood666

{Ed002's Note - Typically they would go pretty much immediately within the constrants of their contract. It is a different situation for players.}


 

 

27 Aug 2017 06:51:08
Hey ed001,

Lots of links with Renata Sanchez. I think ed002 has explained it's not likely for LFC, but wanted your opinion on him as a player. He looks a bit undisciplined and overrated to me, relying to much on his pace and power rather real footballing technique or intelligence? Seems to be common with players like that looking good in weaker leagues. Maybe that's harsh as he's still young but I certainly haven't seen anything to suggest he would get into our first team. Any thoughts?

Westwood666

{Ed001's Note - I have only seen him once or twice and he did not impress.}


1.) 27 Aug 2017 08:48:26
I've only seen him a handful of times and he doesn't look great.


2.) 27 Aug 2017 09:25:13
She sounds hot.

{Ed002's Note - The concensus is that he has a great deal of talent but moved too young and did not settle. There are interested sides but a loan would require guaranteed game time and a sale would be risky due to the amount of money involved.}


3.) 27 Aug 2017 10:52:20
Thanks eds and others!


4.) 27 Aug 2017 11:31:15
Our starting attack from midfield up is good but if we get injuries then the squad is mid table that's why we need to buy in them areas but our defence we need to buy to get into the starting team now even without injuries.


 

 

20 Aug 2017 05:13:12
Ed001 what you opinion on Sturridge yesterday? I'm desperate for him to succeed with us but something just seems missing with him. It was devastating watching him chase a ball in the first half and being outpaced by an average speed defender. That lightning speed has truly gone and he doesn't seem to be finding himself in positions to score. Also do you think Bobby will continue to play up top? I understand he does a selfless job there but despite what Klopp says I really don't think he's a striker or ever will be.

Westwood666

{Ed001's Note - to be fair, wasn't it Zouma he was up against? I can't remember now, but if it was, then he is very quick for a defender, or at least he was before suffering his own long term injury. The speed and acceleration are not there for Sturridge, that is true, sadly. Whether it will ever come back or not we will never know but he is having to adjust his game to cope. He was trying to drop off and pick up the ball, rather than look for the ball over the top. That should not be an issue the way we play, as Mane and Salah provide the pace for balls over the top, but he needs to adapt himself.

Firmino will continue up there, he is exactly what we need, a linkman. I have no idea why you think he is not a striker, not every player in that position is an out and out goalscorer. Players like Firmino are priceless, they attract defenders, create space and are always a threat.}


1.) 20 Aug 2017 05:25:13
It was Fosu Mensah Ed001. And yeah, Sturridge has lost his burst of acceleration but he is an intelligent footballer more than capable of adapting his game to Klopp's needs. The question is how long before he is totally comfortable playing a new style and whether he gets consistent enough game time to prove to Klopp he has a long term future at the club.

{Ed001's Note - TFM is very quick, so it is not that big a shock.}


2.) 20 Aug 2017 06:11:02
To be fair to Sturridge that was his first game back after injury and he usually seems to need 3-4 games to get up to speed.


3.) 20 Aug 2017 06:25:20
I agree with Ed1,Firmino does a great job up top and there isn't many strikers around who I would swap him for.


4.) 20 Aug 2017 07:02:53
What scared me was when Sturridge took one hell of a power shot which ballooned over. That is how he usually injures himself😅 The sweet bit of footwork before the shot though shows he is still top class.
Think he will need to build a lot of confidence in his running ability to pick up speed again. Probably scared of hurting himself - so many fast players 'lose' pace after even just 1 leg injury, he has had a big series of injuries : (.


5.) 20 Aug 2017 07:31:33
Ed, the mentality of "only a striker can play up top" is typical and outdated English mentality. Spain won the Euros w/ o ever playing a CF. Their "CF's" were Silva and then Fabregas. Germany won the Confed Cup while playing a couple of times with Lars Stindl, a box to box midfielder (and a darn good one too) from Gladbach at CF.

Unfortunately, the English will never understand that the game has evolved and playing with a linkman as striker, prevents the CB's from marking him out. They are obliged to mark zonally as in, the spaces in front of them so when Firmino drops deep, Mane, Salah or Cou (hopefully) can dart into the spaces between the back line and go straight for goal. With the way we play, NO typical CF can play there bar maybe Lewandowski who knows Klopp's system and thrived in it and who for me, is the most complete CF on the planet. No other will fit.

{Ed001's Note - Mueller is also not a out and out striker.}


6.) 20 Aug 2017 07:55:10
Sturridge is playing smart. He is aware that his pace and agility are probably what cause him his muscle injuries, so he is adjusting his game a bit.
I saw it in pre season the day he got injured lobbing the keeper. He got away from the defender but the usual blast of pace wasn't there.
I think he is aware, as is Klopp, that once he has the ball he is a great finisher, so only has to create himself a yard or so of space.
Like End said, whether this is Sturridge easing himself back in after injury and we will see the pace return we will have to wait and see.


7.) 20 Aug 2017 08:58:44
Sturridge needs to reinvent himself.

Either into someone like Sheringham, or someone like Fowler.

Neither had great pace. It didn't matter. Like them, Sturridge can pass, and he can finish.


8.) 20 Aug 2017 09:47:25
Danny has to just become confident with his body and that will take time. its physical and mental with him. he believes in his own ability that is clear. once he realises kicking a ball won't hurt his foot he will be sound.


9.) 20 Aug 2017 09:55:11
Tigerxl that's a good shout.


10.) 21 Aug 2017 12:40:32
I agree Ed001, Bobby does a fantastic job up top and easily the best link up player we have. I'm not doubting his overall ability or value to our team. I'm questioning his ability to get the pig skin in the net, and I don't mean that in the sense that he can't finish, although that is an area of his game I think he needs work on. I mean it in the sense of his positioning, he doesn't seem to get into scoring positions for himself often enough, which I think is important whether your leading the line either directly or creatively. Again this wouldn't be an issue if he was belting them in from outside that box like that goal v Arsenal in his first year, but I don't think he pulls them goals out the hat very often. I hope he smashes 20+ this year though.

{Ed001's Note - he is not being asked to play that way though, so it is unfair that people keep criticising him for not scoring enough.}


11.) 21 Aug 2017 14:26:59
Fair enough ed001. Just wanted your thoughts either way. Cheers!

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, just find it a bit galling that the lad is playing so well yet everyone still wants to change things. If it's not broke!}


 

 

12 Aug 2017 14:43:02
Well at least we know we can score without PC. Sell and use cash upgrade that shoddy defence. It has been our biggest issue for years and I can't get my head around why we strengthen other areas. Does my head in when we constantly drop points like that.

Hi Ed002. Interesting comment on Markovic invoking a FIFA clause. A little digging and can I assume this relates to article 15 (Sporting cause) because of appearing in less than 10% of eligible games? Has this ever happened before cus it’s he first I heard of it?

I think that's a bit unfair in Moreno. His attacking play has improved no end and whilst defensively he's not solid he is clearly making an effort to curb the rash diving in which has got him in trouble previously. He has has visibly started to learn about staying on his feet and goal side, and he knows that if he let's his current standards slip, Robertson comes straight into his place.

If I was Klopp I would be furious with him. Make that pass and everyone calls him a genius for having the courage to rotate in a big game and still getting the win. As it is it didn’t happen, Salah missed an open net with his header, and Lovren needlessly gave the opposition player an opportunity to look for a pen, and now Klopps getting a pelters for things he could in no way shape or form control. That team put out was good enough to win, should of won and should be ashamed that they let down Klopps trust in them. All this said, it happens and we move on. We are on the up and will get better. Bored of pointing out the failings in our team currently as we all know what they are, just hope they get sorted in the next 7-8 months.

Top post Wooly. Some people forget how inyegal he has been in recent years. If we had a decent CDM and Hendo resumed his natural position in Wijis place people wouldn’t be spouting nonsense. Fella is a consummate pro doing exactly what he is instructed currently, and has far more ability than some give hime credit for, especially good ol ed 025. Sorry Ed 025! Love ya even if you are a blue, but some context to the needless dislike please?! No football fan can fail to see the benefits of a Henderson type player in the midst unless they are blinded by pure hatred?! 😎.

Hear hear ed02. Rather have a team of Henderson’s than Coutinhos. Ok maybe that’s an exaggeration, Hendo hasn’t been as effective this year as he has been in previous years but he is playing much deeper with much less freedom currently than he has previously. He is a box to box midfielder being made to play the no. 6 role. He’s never going to be a Gerrard, Kante, Fabregas etc but he can be effective and cares about the shirt. Enough said in my book. When on top form he’s one of the first names on the team sheet and I’m confident he will get back to that level. If we buy a dedicated CDM that will free Hendo to play his natural position which is currently being filled by Wiji, who is nowhere near as effective as Hendo is at that role.
