If we are to lose Coutinho, Eds do you think it’s would be a good shout to ask for Umtiti as part of the deal and if so do you think Barcelona would sell him?

g1dgo

{Ed002's Note - (a) No and (b) Yes if they get the replacement they want - but he won't be moving to Liverpool.}


1.) 03 Jan 2018 19:49:00
I just want to say Phil Countinho is a fantastic player, saved our season few years ago when we signed him in JAN window i think.

Nothing wrong with a player wanting to move, I've done that in my working career always striving for a better job and better pay and conditions. and a footballers career doesn't span as much - nothing wrong with his desire.

Thanks for your service Phil if you go.


2.) 03 Jan 2018 23:00:56
But there's ways of doing it.


3.) 04 Jan 2018 00:33:40
I just hope we do a deal for next summer so Phil can put in a good run with us for top 4 and CL without the stress of worrying about his dream move knowing it's done. It's not in him to dog the second half of the season. I think it would be a great farewell for him with supporters and would cement his status with the club. I think if he goes in January some will hold it against him.


4.) 04 Jan 2018 12:31:10
Stay to summer, deep run in Champions League then take the big move. Both sets of fans will respect you.


 

 

24 Dec 2017 09:49:10
A year ago there were rumours that Liverpool were interested in Sessegnon (spelling? ) but Fulham were not interested to sell. Now I’m reading Spurs and Man U are battling it out for him. Eds. Have Liverpool dropped interest in him?

g1dgo

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool moved for someone else.}


1.) 24 Dec 2017 10:10:48
Just as well. The poor lad would have been ruined in our team this season.

{Ed025's Note - lighten up ron...its christmas mate!!!..


2.) 24 Dec 2017 10:25:16
😄 it’s not just sour grapes though ed, it’s true! Ed002 called it in the summer.
If he had come to our club 1) he wouldn’t have got much of a chance because Klopp favours Moreno 2) when he does play it’s usually 6 against 4 (and a “keeper”) and 3) the other defenders are oblivious to the basic principles of defending.
He made a smart choice IMO.


3.) 24 Dec 2017 13:35:42
I am as frustrated as everyone else by our defensive frailties but Klopp is still the right man to lead us and our team plays some of the best football in the league

It will all come good and we will get a proper keeper

And for Ron we will field a strong side against Everton in the cup and we will batter the living daylights out of them

Merry. Christmas to one and all.

Just got a wave from Jurgen Klopp getting off the coach. It's a positive sign we're going to win well tonight.

g1dgo

1.) 01 May 2017 22:51:30
2 out of 3 ain't bad g1dgo "win and tonight"


 

 

03 Oct 2014 13:09:11
Eds.

Any truth to the Sterling won't sign a new contract being reported or is it simply paper talk?

He has been the only positive I can take from our season so far. I do agree to some of the notes below that he has put too much pressure on himself to save the team. He needs to learn that he cannot fix everything by himself and play the simple ball sometimes so that the team can fix the problems.

That's the only coaching I give to my son so I'm out of advice now.

g1dgo

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what the press are saying but my understanding is that Real Madrid are still interested in him and is agent may well be told soon what sort of package and conditions they will be offering. Liverpool have made an offer and I would think they would want time to consider what is his best option going forward. I really don't see any big deal at this time.}


1.) He needs to work on his end product before he thinks he made it


2.) Im sure Stirling has the potential to play at Real but who would they put him in for? I think it would be a disaster for his career at this stage. Look at Rodwell at City, what's the point.


3.) 04 Oct 2014 10:12:41
Rodwell at city was an addition, Real want to replace Ronaldo and Sterling fits their bill perfect.
Young. Skillfull. that's an investment for the next 10 years.


4.) They better have at least 60 mill lying around for him so


5.) John, £60m? You are in dream land mate if you think we'd get that much. He is yet to sign a new deal and they are interested.

IF he leaves you will be disappointed if you're expecting that kind of money.


6.) Boom, I think Hazard will be Ronaldo replacement.

I agree Stirling would be a long term investment for RM but I don't see him getting lots of game time initially - not sure. I do think he has potential of being a top 3 best in World one day, but there is a lot of developing needed to get there, on and off the pitch.

Liverpool best place for him for next three years in my opinion.

Klopp is a big fan of Lallana but with all the incomings over the last 18 months do you think it justifiable to rate him as high as the other squad members? Can Adam get to the level he peaked at in 2016/17? Sadly I don’t see it happening.

g1dgo

1.) 29 Jul 2018 15:50:10
Adam wasn't only good in the 16/ 17 season. He has always been a good player. I don't understand how people can judge him so harshly on last seasons injury plagued campaign.

He's a good player to have about the squad and what is the point of building a squad if we sell a senior player for everyone we buy.

Origi
Migs and
Ings look set to leave. I'm pleased lallana is being given another chance to show what he can do. He is a perfect Klopp player.

Happy birthday Ed01. A victory over utd to savour, okay only a friendly but they would've loved to win it.

{Ed001's Note - yes Robbie any win over them is a plus. And thank you.}


2.) 29 Jul 2018 18:08:00
Lallana, Hendo and Milner have a lot of experience. Vital to a title winning squad 👍.


 

 

08 Jul 2018 14:36:31
If Lovren ups his consistency (which I think he can) and only has one mind blow this season then let it be this Wednesday!

g1dgo

1.) 08 Jul 2018 15:00:45
I hope he has a blinder as I do with Hendo. Ultimately I think England will win.


2.) 08 Jul 2018 15:18:27
For me, Lovs is a very good CB. He has ALL the tools you need to be a top CB in terms of skill set, pace, aerial ability, passing ability (long or short) and of course, physical and mental toughness due to his upbringing and experience as a refugee which has forged a strong and steely character.

His ONLY prob. is what is between his ears. When he is having a good spell, all these qualities come to the fore, no question. When he is having a stinker, his "head" issues come to the fore and overshadow all his ability hence, he overthinks things which then lead to rash decision-making.

What we have seen is that when VVD has been next to him, he is more assured, calmer and just focuses on his job of defending, something he is very good at. If he can work on his "head" issues, consistency will come with that. As for his mistakes, I think people just over-react and jump all over him cos frankly, mistakes happen. Provided he has 8 good games out of 10, I'm good with him having one average game here and one bad game there. As for Wednesday vs England, we'll see what happens cos to me, he has been the best CB at the WC.


3.) 08 Jul 2018 15:23:40
BRover really good post mate, hit the nail on the head in my opinion. Although, Uragian defenders not shabby!


4.) 08 Jul 2018 15:29:57
Sorry that was meant to be Uruguayan. Was multi tasking watching the fastest traffic jam on tv and trying not to spill my beer 😯.


5.) 08 Jul 2018 16:21:00
What's wrong with his nose?


6.) 08 Jul 2018 16:35:06
Playing alongside van Dijk has helped immense.


7.) 08 Jul 2018 18:51:45
Consistency is what separates champions from the rest.
It’s not just Lovren who’s struggled with it 🤝.


8.) 08 Jul 2018 19:29:04
I don’t think he’s strong or aggressive enough for the PL and gets bullied by the bigger centre forwards. That being said without the brain farts he’s still a good defender. I agree he’s improved massively with VVD alongside him and it would be difficult and expensive to improve on him. Every player in the world has weaknesses.


 

 

06 Jul 2018 15:18:10
Our first two games in September now announced to be 12.30pm ko. Klopp has a notoriously bad record for games at that time.

Lots of teams argue about the sequence of games but eventually everyone has to play 38 games. What doesn’t even out are the early kick off games.

Can Liverpool not make a request to tv companies to limit the number of early starts?

g1dgo

1.) 06 Jul 2018 15:52:17
Does he have a notoriously bad record on 12:30 starts? What is his record?


2.) 06 Jul 2018 15:57:19
If we’re going to win the league we need to be winning games that start at various times, not just 3pm and Sunday fixtures!

A highly paid team of professional footballers should be able to perform at their best no matter the kickoff time!

Time to stop moaning about daft things like this and get on with it!


3.) 06 Jul 2018 16:24:37
On this topic, Ed01 has said that a lot of teams suffer from playing early games as well so it is a feature and not a bug. Having said that, we have to improve and fast cos the schedule will NEVER change just to suit any team or any manager. Klopp will have to get creative here to get the boys juiced up for such games.

{Ed002's Note - So what you are saying is that a lot of teams lose early KOs? Would that be more than half of them?}


4.) 06 Jul 2018 16:33:38
Kramer

We won 1 out of 8 Saturday lunchtime kick off games last season

I’m not saying that as professionals they shouldn’t adapt but if a lunchtime kick off works out to be a leveller between a better and slightly lesser team then it is a disadvantage for one club to play more games at that time.


5.) 06 Jul 2018 16:37:28
Klopp's Premier League record in 12:30 kick-offs with Liverpool is - 12 games, 3 wins, 6 draws, 3 defeats - 16 goals scored, 19 conceded.

So no, not the best. Certainly something that has to improve if we're to challenge higher up the table.


6.) 06 Jul 2018 16:51:19
Suck it up and stop finding excuses for losses i say. Every team we play at midday has the same disadvantage for that game so its an even playing field.


7.) 06 Jul 2018 16:52:18
Ed02, all I am saying is what Ed01 said as in, other teams suffer from getting fired up for early games, which is what is bugging us at the moment. That is all.

{Ed002's Note - So my question is, does your use of "lots" means that more than half suffer this problem and lose?}


8.) 06 Jul 2018 17:07:00
RedLorry, exactly my thoughts too. We just have to get on with it like the next team, no excuses. I wouldn't care if we played at 7am, they're professional footballers who shouldn't have a problem no matter what time the game is. With the team we now have I honestly don't see it been a problem.


9.) 06 Jul 2018 17:11:22
Put the fishing rod away, Mr Ed002!

I believe the bit missing from BRover's post is that lots of top 6 teams have struggled disproportionately with lunchtime kick offs.

I would imagine that the maximum percentage of losses across all teams who kick off at 12.30 is extremely unlikely to be more than 50% ;-)

It would be interesting to look at, for example, average points scored by the top 6 teams in lunchtime kick offs vs overall, and that may just prove Ed001's assertion that most of the top teams struggle with lunchtime kick offs.

{Ed002's Note - Feel free to gather the stats.}


10.) 06 Jul 2018 17:56:07
So the fixture compiler is conspiring against Liverpool already, we are going to be 6 points down after 2 games, it is an outrage. Our only hope is that the opposition are equally inept in the early games, so we can salvage 2 draws.


11.) 06 Jul 2018 18:26:45
78.3% of teams lose their 12:30 kick offs, but in fairness 86.1% win a later 5:30 kick off on Saturdays. This rises to a whopping 96.6% win rate for an 8pm Monday night kick off. Source: FKFB opta index.


12.) 06 Jul 2018 18:38:05
How can 78% of teams lose 12 30 games? There are 2 teams on the pitch.


13.) 06 Jul 2018 18:10:12
Guys, you do realise the team we are playing are also playing at Saturday lunchtime? Not like they stroll up at 3pm and were already knackered!


14.) 06 Jul 2018 18:12:32
Exactly ed02. It's 12.30 for both teams. If you're the better team you should (not always) win.

{Ed002's Note - You are forgetting the conspiracy against Liverpool.}


15.) 07 Jul 2018 15:13:08
Like how klopp and Co figured out an effective strategy to manage the Dec-Jan period, I hope they do the same for the early kickoffs. Also, I haven't looked, but I remember during the season that we weren't coping well with the early kickoffs that either came after the international break or CL tie. So just stuff for us to figure out!

I'm a Londoner who lived in Bogota for 4 years at the start of the century. My oldest son was actually born in Colombia. I am alone in my own house supporting England tonight.

Wonderful country and beautiful people but if we lose I will have to move away and change my identify. I know way too many Colombians.

Is it true you can buy coka leaves legally in columbia g1dgo? And if so is it easy to buy?

{Ed001's Note - are you thinking of emigrating?}


2.) 03 Jul 2018 22:53:35
I'm there with my party straw!


3.) 04 Jul 2018 05:00:51
If it's about party straws, Columbia is the place to be my friend. Although coca leaves as aren't quite like the devils candy.

This transfer window is starting to feeling like FIFA 18. It feels believable and unbelievable at the same time. I’m scared of waking up in case this is just a dream.

Anyway just wanted to say that there are 2 massive signings I still want to see which will top off the Ab 3 (Nobby, Nabil and Fab) .

Salah and Mane get the new contracts they fully deserve!

g1dgo

1.) 09 Jun 2018 11:02:41
The Ab 3 reference only works without typos (Nobby, Nabby and Fabby)


2.) 09 Jun 2018 11:14:59
Eds! I’m writing Nobby not Nobby!

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what you mean- do you think there is a problem with autocorrect - you need to ask Ed033 about it.}


3.) 09 Jun 2018 11:24:19
Autocorrect or someone playing mind games on me! I am trying to write Keita’s first name and each time it’s coming out as Nobby. I guess the nano bots behind the site technology has chosen his nickname!

{Ed002's Note - Could it be the swearotron?}


4.) 09 Jun 2018 11:38:36
'Eds! I’m writing Nobby not Nobby! '

Hahaha he's messing with you mate lol.

if you mean he wants playing time then yes he is greedy. With Liverpool openly active for more midfielders and Coutinho dropping into midfield he wants reassurances he will play.

As a Liverpool fan I don't want him to go. Since he got over his injury he has looked very solid. I can understand his hesitation to sign a new contract.

You've been a bit hard on the lad.

Encouraging to read. As Macca states, it is an intent as of now and not a fact.

After all the drama this summer would be so good for this to happen. I really hope it does.

Would be nice if it were true and I'm not disputing if it is. My only concern is that we were already rumoured to be paying a hefty fee. Does this just increase it further?

Maybe we can offer them Clyne as part exchange :)

Lovren - the fans favourite. Keep performing the way you are son and you can be as arrogant as you like. I’m thinking more Zatan Ibrahimovic than David Bentley (remember him? ) here.

I want England to win the World Cup but the difference between England and Liverpool is that if England lose in the final on Sunday I’ll be miserable until Tuesday. Since Liverpoool lost to Real I’ve been miserable ever since. Not even a World Cup win will make up for it.

Generally speaking it takes a new season to start before I get over previous season’s disappointments.
