Ed001, help me out. Im a very emotional person when it comes to LFC. Im not so worried about the lost we had last night, im more worried if other teams will take a leaf out of AM book and use it towards us in the league and the injury to Hendo. It seams Deja vu to me probably because of 30 years of heartache, that we are so close to the holy grail and now things and now a lesson for every one to know how to defend against us and then not having Hendo on the pitch for us just like the last 2 games in 2014 season. Hendo was pivotal taht season.

If we come through this tie, I think last night's loss will stand to us.

A little reminder on hurt is good every now and again.

Hi Eds or fellow reds, could someone please please tell me what does Sturridge brings to the team. He is on a very high salary can't give his all for 90 min, tries absurd shots on goal instead of passing, slows down the attack and is scared of tackles. I think any half decent striker will do more than Sturridge and will be on 1/ 3 of his salary.
Im sorry about the rant but feel like Origi would do a better job than him if given more chances.

Chelsea would have beaten us if it wasn't for sturridge. His wages are his wages and the club will address that soon. But until then, I think it's nothing to give out about. Particularly in the final year of contract.

2.) 06 Dec 2018 15:06:36
Davey other than the Chelsea goal anything quite significant done by Sturridge? . I know wages are not paid by my money, but the spot he takes on the squad could go to someone who is better than him or atleast more reliable than him in starting few games and coming of the bench in others.
We don't need passengers in this squad and i think we need people who can come in the last 15-20 and change the game if needed.

3.) 06 Dec 2018 15:34:26
I think you need to balance the view on Sturridge and dwell far less on only the negative. For every shot on goal from an impossible angle (while Origi was waiting for a ball to come on to his head in front of goal) there is the swift back heel pass he made to Shaqiri which could have easily ended up with a goal if Shaqiri had been awake.

I think the man is trying to make a transition in his style of play and becoming more of a team player; but it probably takes time. He referred to this in an interview after his West Ham stay. Yes, he won us the game against Chelsea, but sorry, that's what the fat paycheck is for.

4.) 06 Dec 2018 16:04:26
I tnk as a back up striker when fit sturridge is the best in league. own up this is what happens at big clubs. u people r ok wid psg manc paying over the odds for neymar mbappe gabriel jesus but when its one of our own all u do is whine.

5.) 06 Dec 2018 16:23:45
I just seen sturridge in the bookies. Oh no you didn't!
Oh yes I did!

6.) 06 Dec 2018 16:38:45
1969 he did not win us the Chelsea game. Get your facts right. If we need to win the league, we need players who can come and make an impact regularly. Yes he is changing his style and credit where its due but any other striker will do what he is doing and may be even better, so let's give a younster a chance at least they won't shy away from a tackle.

7.) 06 Dec 2018 17:04:29
Im not hearing any of this. He’s a brilliant option for us to hve from the bench and start the odd game. We are lucky it worked out so that he's fitter this season and willing to do the bench role. 5 goals in all comp isn't so bad when you aren't regularly starting.

He had decent shots against everton and burnely too.

8.) 06 Dec 2018 17:12:15
Correction - Sturridge tied up the game for us against Chelsea.

9.) 06 Dec 2018 18:21:58
Why the need for us to slam one of our own when things are going so well?

10.) 06 Dec 2018 18:40:00
How about setting up the third goal against Burnley. Sturridge is a class act with or without pace. He played some masterful little flicks yesterday. Great player to have in the squad.

11.) 06 Dec 2018 19:07:35
Alison to Stud, Stud to Mo and Mo to Shaq. Sounds like a team goal to me. fare point though but I really think the guy is trying but I can see where you coming from.

12.) 06 Dec 2018 19:07:59
Crazy, if you are asking Studge to start banging in goals for fun then you will be waiting for a long time. I have accepted Studge now for who and what he is. He can be frustrating at times and so for Mane, Salah, Bobbie and whoever else. What he is now, is a good option to bring on from the bench who can help us with his unpredictability.

Studge may have lost his pace BUT not his innate ability to find the net, fire a rocket off that left foot with no backlift or play a killer pass. Maybe you should start accepting him as well instead of the constant moaning and nitpicking on what he is not doing (some of which he no longer can do) instead of looking at the bigger picture.

hi ed 001 i was qondering what do you thing of Emyln Hughes aka crazy horse as a player. do you think he is a legend for Lfc. I have never watched him play but every time i read about Liverpool history his name is always there. i personnaly feel that he along witha few other Shankly had is the base of Shankly and to an extent Liverpool history.
if you want you can add him to the Legends list too
thank you.

crazy horse316

{Ed001's Note - I have not seen Emlyn play, but he definitely figures as a legend of the club. He was a big part of the Shankly era and deserves inclusion without doubt.

I have added him to the list.}

1.) 02 Nov 2017 14:25:04
I watched Emlyn Hughes play many times, he was a huge player for Liverpool, so much heart, hated getting beat, always going forward, I would really want him in this side, truly a great player .

2.) 02 Nov 2017 17:10:20
crazy horse watched play so many times and his celabration after scoring goal was so good to watch great player for Liverpool.

3.) 02 Nov 2017 17:18:50
he also earned 62 England caps too πŸ‘.

4.) 02 Nov 2017 22:56:54
Great player.



26 Oct 2017 23:59:54
great article by MK (Adam) really enjoyed it and i think liverpool needs atleast one midfield general. Now if i may ask about another player on this site, Krychiowak. what do you guys think of him. heis on loan to Wba so should be achievable. in any case if we show the right ambition most of the listed player by Mk could be achieveable.

crazy horse316

1.) 27 Oct 2017 06:55:51
Cheers buddy. I like Krychowiak by the way. I'd have him in the midfield general category. When his loan deal at West Brom expires he would probably be very attainable.

My concern is that he has always looked physically dominant in Spain and France, but since coming to England he seems to have struggled initially. Almost as though he doesn't like it now there are lots of players as big and ugly as he is. Decent player though. Nothing particularly special, but he does a job.

{Ed001's Note - I think he has stood out at West Brom as being a class above the rest of the team in terms of quality.}

2.) 27 Oct 2017 08:03:31
He definitely looks too good for them Ed. I'm just waiting for him to take a game by the scruff like he did in Europe, really. Early days though. He's only played like 4 or 5 games and as you say, he's already been one of their best players. The only player i think has been better than him in their team so far is Hegazi. Where did he come from?!

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure I agree at all, did you not watch him against Leicester? Vardy tore Hegazi a new one and they had to swap him to the other side to get him away from him. He was awful that day.}

3.) 27 Oct 2017 08:42:06
Hegazy is a bit slow so not shocking Vardy got the best of him, he has been very solid for them apart from that game though. For someone coming straight from the Egyptian league i think he has done very well considering the difference in quality he faces now.

{Ed001's Note - it is the only time I have seen them play this season, so I will have to take your word for it, but he looked to have more problems than a lack of pace and it was not the pace of Vardy that was the issue. It was simply clumsiness in the challenge. He could not cope with a man attempting to take him on and immediately resorted to Skertling, sorry I mean grappling. It was a dreadful performance, he kept getting too tight and then being caught out. All he had to do was drop off and he would have been fine. Not sure why he couldn't see it.}

4.) 27 Oct 2017 08:44:56
He looks slow to be fair Ed, but for how West Brom play, he will be a good signing long term.

I didn't see the Leicester game though. That sounds worrying, but he is relatively new to this level of football.

{Ed001's Note - he looked it. Very clumsy and did not have the sense to drop off Vardy when he got beaten the first time through being too tight. Instead he just tried to get tighter. Not surprising as Pulis does not like intelligent players who think for themselves, he wants them to follow instructions exactly to the letter, which is why he bought the blank harddrive (Ollie Burke).}

5.) 27 Oct 2017 09:17:36
Skrteling! That's hilarious. Can't believe we went from crap Skrtel to crap Lovren and Matip. I mean i couldn't stand Skrtel and how bad he was at times due to him backing and backing off until the opposition was at the 6 yard box or giving away freekicks and penalties all the time hugging players! Hegazy is used to play for El-Ahly, africa's biggest club so he has rarely faced so much attacking of this quality in his life, he was at Fiorentina before but didn't get a look in, he is used to playing the Westbrom way for Egypt though under the ultra defensive Hector Cuper. I think when fully settled he will do well for them. Because the pace of the Premier League is the fastest in the world so it will take time to get used to.

6.) 27 Oct 2017 09:31:31
I've seen him 3 times this season and he has improved each time. Some of the best defenders in the league struggle to cope with Vardy, but it sounds like he's really suffered when he faced something he'd not come across before back in Africa. I'm sure it was a learning curve for him, as he's still relatively young. Hopefully for the lads sake, he does learn and develops into a decent player as he seems to have the raw tools. He'd potentially be perfect for a Man United type team who play a deep defence. No use to a team like Liverpool or City though. Expansive football would expose his lack of pace too much.

7.) 27 Oct 2017 10:37:23
You're right MK Scouser, he is the slow CB in the Egyptian national team as well, Rami Rabia is the other guy he partners who is quick and i actually rate higher than Hegazy because he is overall a very good footballer. Hegazy is 27 or 28 already i think so i think Westbrom will be his sort of level.



18 Sep 2017 16:34:56
Sgred you have a great comment about strikers and what type of striker will suit against different type of teams. For MK i have always reapected your post but no one is blaming Firminio, to be honest he should have the least of any blames. he works very hard he reminds me so much of Kuyt with a bit of flair. But Firminio on wings is completletly wasted. We rely on 2 pacy winger so in absence of one we loose that pace. every sucessfull team had/ have a 20+ goal striker, firminio is not that guy. This is where my argument comes, bobby is perfect to take over the #10 role from Cout and we should have got a pure #9 who can score 20 goal/ season. Sturridge is not that guy i assure u, solanke or Origi are better fit for that #9, both still raw but givem the chance will do better than Sturridge. For my Lfc family there is nothing wrong in pointing Kloops mistakes as his stubborness and his silly system is costing us point. please don't look at the point by other teams, look at the points gained by some. don't hope for othet teams to have a drop in form as that might never happen and we would have a great ooppurtunity again. let's take advantage of every game we play and try to gain max point from them. I feel we all know deep down that we are not good enough for any major trophys and that's why take pleasure in the failure of others.
We are Lfc we don't deserve to win every game but we should be sad everytime we drop a point. We are way behind a lot of teams on term of success on pitch and off tje pitch we should start changing that. Wether its with Kloop or with Fsg over aspirations should never change, we should never be happy with mediocrity.

YES mate! Finally a little sense on here! I nearly exploded when I read that.
Great post Crazy Horse316.
Easily the best post I've read on here and I've been reading posts on here for nearly a decade!
Thank you Crazy Horse316 and where have you been all my life? πŸ˜‚.

2.) 18 Sep 2017 17:37:33
I believe we have a team capable of winning major trophies. Shoot me down if you want but I believe it. We don't have the strongest defence but our forward line is as good as anyone's and more than capable of out scoring teams. People calling for a twenty + striker must have forgotten about salah (fantastic klopp signing) who has 5 goals in 7 games. I'm no mathematician but I think he is on course to go past 20 goals. Easily BTW.

3.) 18 Sep 2017 17:51:05
Except the fact Firmino can't, doesn't and never has played as a midfielder πŸ™„

Simply by saying that we need a number 9 (Firmino's squad number and theoretical position) is basically calling for him to be replaced, or at the very least suggesting he isn't good enough to lead the line.

So you yourself have just inferred he is not good enough, and then just to contradict yourself said 'he shouldn't play out of position on the wing, he should play out of position in midfield'! I mean did you even think that one through?

He is a striker. A unique striker. But still a striker. Rodgers is long gone, let's not make a habit of shoe horning players into the wrong positions again please. Klopp had a midfielder on the wing and midfielder at left back last season. So he signed a left back and a winger, and put them back in midfield. Job done. He doesn't put square pegs into round holes unless he thinks he can carve them into circles; see Lallana for evidence on that one. He will not put our best striker into midfield and throw our entire attacking system into disarray because the players missed 34 shots out of 35. That is an issue with finishing, not the system. The finishing issue is also barely relevant to Firmino as he took a small percentage of those shots, and by your own admission was being played out of position to cover a suspension.

Why are people so keen to descredit Firmino's credentials as a striker. I have seen a few posters such as SGred and Putney be fair and say that we should use Solanke in certain games and scenarios, which i completely agree with, but people making out Firmino doesn't score enough to lead the line are just completely missing the point. I'm yet to see anyone counter the argument that it isn't his job to score all the goals. Which it isn't. We don't rely on one player for goals because Firmino's I'm selfish nature creates space and chances fir others.

Feel like I'm debating with brick walls though. Not one person has actually tackled my main point. The only way you can is to suggest we change the system, which is basically saying 'Klopp Out' because this is his system!

4.) 18 Sep 2017 17:53:36
I guess we all want a shot at taking Liverpool into the CL crazy horse316.

That is a walk in the park, right? Let alone winning the League.

It is a fact that Liverpool have not won the League in over two decades with any other manager before him since the EPL started.

Klopp has been been manager of LFC for just under two years but he is stubborn eh?

5.) 18 Sep 2017 17:57:28
Crazy, I agree with parts of your post as indeed, Firmino should either play the no 9, play behind the no. 9 or not play at all. Him out wide is us effectively us playing with ten men as his is more lethal in center where he can be creative due to his guile, vision and movement.

As for Klopp, no one is saying he's a saint and is above criticism and he himself has said so. Many of us criticize (he has handled the GK situation horribly) BUT try not to throw the baby out with the bath water with the "Klopp out", "He's a fool", "We need Rafa back" etc stuff. Really? After two draws and 5 games gone in the season? It is simply unproductive, period. The issue is the knee jerk reactions and constant moaning about thing that take away from posts like yours being displayed, one with perspective and thought, is what my issue is as the way people have reacted to two draws, is just diabolic and over the top. Spurs are having statistically, a worse season than ours right now (can't buy a win at home) and where do you hear the OTT crap being posted on here, with Spurs fans?

I have never cared about what other teams do, how they play nor who they sign. My focus should be LFC and LFC only. The season is still young and a lot can still happen so keep the faith and keep believing cos we can only get out of this together.

6.) 18 Sep 2017 18:00:53
Who is Kloop?

7.) 18 Sep 2017 18:27:57
There you go again MK. Loads of people have made extremely valid counters to you but you're not even taking on board what they're saying, therefore making yourself look ridiculously stubborn and beyond an actual multi sided debate so why bother. You're seeing what you want to on posts and not actually reading them. You're taking it a little personally it seems. You're acting Firmino is Messi for goodness sake. Are you saying that you'd pick Firmino over Ian Rush in his heyday upfront if your system only suits one striker because you wouldn't be able to through lack of knowledge or want to through pure stubbornes?
You wouldn't last a week if so.
If you're on a wind up, now is the time to give it up or this will just look silly. What main striker in world football doesn't score or aim to score more goals than his team mates? Do you seriously believe that. Only Suarez and Benzema might be in that position, so I need to explain why? Seriously now mate, your piddling up a down-pipe.
Again, nothing personal as I'm sure you're a lovely guy and you're heart is in the right place. Your argument is naive though. Being stubborn for the sake of it didn't help anyone.
Good luck!

8.) 18 Sep 2017 19:58:06
A goal poacher wouldn't fit into our system atm, I think that is what mk and others have said quite in depth. I like a team with a focal point, when playing fifa I like a target man but that formula isn't set in stone and football tactics are progressive znd they change and teams adapt. Spain really dispelled the myth that you need an out and out striker, winning three major trophies in a row. Which we can all agree is an outstanding achievement. If we weren't scoring then the debate is healthy but just coz we didn't score five goals at the weekend it's no reason to question lfc's attacking style. We have been spoilt in the last few years with fans expecting three or more every week.

9.) 18 Sep 2017 20:53:19
A world class poacher can fit into any team or system.
Unless you play a ten man defence.

10.) 18 Sep 2017 23:44:32
I honestly think if klopp had shipped firmino and signed a poacher then the same people would be blaming klopp the minute it didn't pay dividends. Kev, of course a Wc poacher can fit into any team but it wouldn't be appropriate in the long run.

11.) 19 Sep 2017 09:43:37
No, it won't, Kev. There is a reason we don't play with one. Our wide men are actually strikers who attack the spaces a goal poacher would sit in. This is why Firmino is great for our system. When he drops deep, it opens the space for either Salah or Mane to attack right at the heart of the defence. If a CF stays there, he won't be able to do what Firmino can do and will stifle Mane and Salah who are NOT wingers, mind you. This is a very simple system to grasp BUT there you go.

Ron do you want the whole world to be positive and happy regardless how stupid Klopp and managment team are? if one can't make changes to things even a blind man can see, then we as fan can't even morn or complain. I am rarely the one to complain on this website and had a lot of hope in Klopp but i feel he is BR 2.0 same mistakes same atitude of buying only pacy attacking players and can't address out leaking defence. sorry to call on you Ron, i respect your opinion but i think its enough with all the positivity and we all as suppporters deserve to be heard.

{Ed001's Note - buying only pacy attacking players? You mean like Robertson, Klavan, Karius, Manninger or Matip? I think you should stop looking at it all negative and try and see a balanced view before calling out others!}

Klopp in his last season at Dortmund had lots of injury to first team as well. They were loosing games by very fine margins and had the best shot every game ratio or something around that mould. I think they even hit the woodworks most time. Do in short a combination of more than few things. Even then they finished seventh. I read somewhere that a stat was done that if all the shot which hits the post would have gone in Borussia would have won bundesliga, something in that line.

Ed what did u think of William and Larrouci. I think they did ok. Specially William keeping up with Richarlison. If these two keep working hard and improve on todays performance then we are sorted at the full back position. Williams showed some shades of Taa today.

crazy horse316

{Ed001's Note - Williams was excellent, put in some good deliveries as well. Difficult to judge his defending though, as he was not exactly pushed! Really impressed with him though.

Larouci looked good going forward but lacked awareness defensively and got caught ball watching a few times. Something that will have to improve if he is up against a better side.}
