hi eds anything in the new link to Inaki Williams or just old recycled news?

grino75

{Ed001's Note - well we have continued to have him tracked, but I don't know of anything new in the pipework just now. I would not expect him to go anywhere until next summer, at the earliest. Bilbao have no reason to sell, so it would require the player wanting a move. They don't need the money, as they can't spend it on players.}


1.) 01 Oct 2016 08:19:57
Looks are real talent would mean someone would have to leave for us to sign him.


2.) 04 Oct 2016 19:16:18
Worth noting that Williams is born and bred in Bilbao, a proud Basque player, and even if we were to offer an acceptable fee (which would likely have to match the release clause of 50mil Euros) there is a strong possibility he'd simply not be interested. Very good player though, would suit the Premier League (and us) well.

hi all eds are we looking at Koln duo Timo Horn and Jonas Hector or more paper talk.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry.}


 

 

01 Oct 2014 09:35:23
hi eds any truth in the Dele Alli rumour?

grino75

{Ed002's Note - He has extended his contract and it will be best for him if he stays where he is for a while. I am not aware of what "rumour" there might be right now, but Liverpool are very keen (as we have discussed before) - there is interest from elsewhere including Spurs and West Ham.}

after sundays defeat were we did look a bit one dimensional. would there be any chance of buying rickie lambert?

grino75

1.) This sort of post really annoys me. Having a big man does not Plan B make. Was removing Lucas not plan B? And going 3 at the back Plan C. Throwing the ball into the box when Chelsea have half a dozen players who are like Giant Red Woods is not a plan. It's desperation.


2.) Unless Rickie Lambert can prove String Theory, I don't see how he can change the dimensions we live in.

Only a joke.


3.) Ha. Thanks mate I've needed some cheering up after Sunday.


4.) Actually I do think if Lambert were available at a reasonable price and is willing to be in a bit of a secondary role for us (and I have no idea if either is true), he would be a pretty good pickup as a third choice striker. He's decent in the air, but he also is pretty good with the ball at his feet and has a fair amount of assists/chances created for Soton this season so he's not purely a target man per se.

hi all?
eds any chance of Juan Bernat Velsaco or any other left back this window or any news on when luis enrique will be back?

grino75

{Ed001's Note - doesn't look likely now and no, it is still not clear, or at least the information is not being made clear.}

hi all ed001 what is going on with Marko Grujic he does not even make the bench anymore?

grino75

{Ed001's Note - he is injured, well he is back in training now.}


1.) 03 Jan 2017 10:08:03
cheers ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}


2.) 03 Jan 2017 12:34:53
Ed1 why has grugic not played before his injury? Ed2 alluded to him and his father making a bit of a stir about it. I ask as it would seem like the club are making broken promises yet again to players.

{Ed001's Note - because he wasn't ready.}


 

 

01 Dec 2016 15:27:59
Ed001 do you no of any forwards in the luis suarez, carlos tevez mould that we could go for.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - Firmino?}


1.) 01 Dec 2016 15:52:33
love firmino but he is more of an attacking midfielder. would just love someone like him with that strikers bit to and would free firmino up to play attacking midfield with rotaion between the other 2 playing there now.

{Ed001's Note - why do you say he is more of an attacking midfielder? He has done very well played up top, looks better there if you ask me.}


2.) 01 Dec 2016 16:16:49
Grino, Firmino is NOTHING like an attacking midfielder. He is a striker, period. Even Klopp said so. At Hoffenheim, he played the modern day no.10 position (more like the second striker) behind the CF and bagged lots of goals and assists. he is a striker and Klopp has been playing him as such in 95% of his games.


3.) 01 Dec 2016 16:00:19
He's got a name for himself there so why go for someone else when we have him. He's making the position his own and doing well at it. Attacking mid he maybe was but now it's a different story.


4.) 01 Dec 2016 17:16:50
He is not a striker hence he often misses sitters before sloting one. He is more of a false striker. A striker's biggest strength is his composure infront of the goal.


5.) 01 Dec 2016 17:45:11
He might not be your definition of a striker Harry but he's still our current striker. I can name you 50 'strikers' in the league with 0 composure in front of goal.


6.) 01 Dec 2016 17:53:52
Is this sarcasm again, Harry? So, by that logic, with Suarez missing more than a few sitters in his second season is he now not a proper striker? I'm more than happy with Firmino upfront thus far, we're the highest scoring team in the league, and yet we still manage to nitpick here. Ron Keague aside, with our fixtures did any of you genuinely expect us to be in this situation going into Christmas?


7.) 01 Dec 2016 18:33:10
Ron for me is one of the most optimistic fans on this forum.


8.) 01 Dec 2016 18:50:32
TBH, when I saw the fixture list, I hoped that we would be top 4, maybe 5 points off first after the first twelve games. I also decided that if were top after 12 games, we would win the league. We have so far played a blinder - here's to hoping we can keep it up.


9.) 01 Dec 2016 19:57:34
Chin I don't know any striker in the history of football who doesn't miss the odd sitter here and there.

{Ed002's Note - One has only to look at George Banks at Mansfield Town in the late 40s, and probably Ernie Moss when at Chesterfield in the last 60s.

Feel free to add these to the list of players Liverpool missed out on.}


10.) 01 Dec 2016 20:03:30
Calm down people. Firmino will destroy the law of football strikers 😎. He will be one of a kind 😌.


11.) 01 Dec 2016 23:02:39
Ron would have predicted maximum points . But he won't be down about it . Fair play to him, I just can't kid myself like that ha .


12.) 01 Dec 2016 23:14:47
Law of football strikers? What on earth are you on about?


 

 

01 Aug 2016 12:39:59
ed001 what do you think of Jetro Willems. is any good do you rate him higher than Hector. no he will cost a lot less and would think lower wages to. i have not seen anything of him.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - I have only seen him a few times, but he didn't look anything worth pursuing. Looked like most modern day fullbacks, decent attacking but poor defensively.}


 

 

24 Jul 2016 17:04:24
hi eds any thing in the Jetro Willems link. and what do you think about him.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - RTFP.}


 

 

04 Jun 2016 09:11:29
hi all Ed002 what do you think about psg interest in Coutinho. i don't think he would be a masive miss goals and assists are not that great. and does go missing in the big games more often than not.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - Coutinho is a decent player but as with many his age wants instant gratification. If he wants to go and an acceptable offers arrrives Liverpool should not stand in his way.}


1.) 04 Jun 2016 10:35:36
The reality is, if a really good offer is made, he'll go. The club would be right to turn down £45m but if PSG go over £55-60 would be stupid to turn it down. Unlike Suarez, players like Coutinho or Sterling aren't hard to replace. Would love us to go for Rafa Silva, has pace, skill, guile and end product.


2.) 04 Jun 2016 11:16:13
i agree with the ed. coutinho is a good player not a world class player yet. he has a potential but there are hundreds of players with potential. he was at times our best player but we need to buy smart and we will not even notice he is gone.


3.) 04 Jun 2016 11:57:50
Yes your right he often goes missing in "big games" he scored 12 goals in 44 games (a goal every 3.66 games not bad for a 23 year old left winger and the 7 assists) out of his 12 goals he scored the winner on the opening day of the season
2 against Chelsea (klopps first win)
1 against Everton
1 against United (very important)
1 against Dortmund
1 against man city (league cup final)
1 against spurs
1 against city in the 4-1 (and MoM)
1 against west ham
1 against palace
I agree he is inconsistent but to accuse him of never turning up in "big games" is wrong in my opinion I suppose you could add that man city winner in the season we finished second as another example against that.

It seems to me that every time one of our better players leave some fans try and rationale it by saying "oh well he's not even very good" or in suarezs case "no one is bigger than the club" which is true but doesn't mean them leaving isn't bad. then there's sterling last year who also began getting some abuse and the he's not very good treatment with people going as far as to say ibe would instantly replace him and than turning on him later in the season. All in all it would be bad if coutinho left I don't want to see it as simple as that.


4.) 04 Jun 2016 12:17:36
Ed2 I think Klopp as always said that players who wants to go he will not stand in there way, if an offer matches the clubs value.

{Ed002's Note - It is not Klopp's decision.}


5.) 04 Jun 2016 13:29:30
Queen of Starling, if Couts goes then I wish him well, he's a good player who's always played his part. Even if he's not had a good game he'd pop up with a moment of magic. He's not joining a premier league rival and we'd get a sackful of cash. I trust Klopp better with that money that Rodgers any day.

well said edd01 suso always looked liked he could be a top player to me. And Ilori could not play any worse than skrtel. I can remember Carragher playing right back and every time he got in to a crossing position passing the ball back. Is that his fault or manager playing him out of position.

any thing over £25m is good. better than keeping him with no football and paying his wages.

it was lucas that gave the foul away that led to the pen not can. and you don't how the game would have gone with lucas starting. for me he all ways gives fouls away in dangerous places. but some players can do know wrong.

ever since jamie carragher retired we have never had a leader at the club and that includes gerrard. that is what we need to buy in january. it is the reason arsenal have not won the league for so long as well we have the best team in the league but some weeks we need to win dirty. chelsea have it, because they play that way.
