ed002 has the interest in lovren gone or do you expect him to move before the window closes all so are rangers back in for kent see something about a loan to buy at the end of the season cheers again ed.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed with Lovren really - the interest remains but Roma have looked at others as Liverpool want a straight sale. Besiktas see him as a cheap option but have not pushed as I under stand it and Milan see Devan Lovren (CB) as a cheap option to preferred targets given the significant issues there are in Milan but Liverpool rejected an approach. Bayer Leverkusen need to do something as they had a young English player as first choice and lost out, a young Welsh player as second choice but he is not really ready to step up and Laurent Koscielny as a back stop. DL is seen as a cheap back stop, and would rather someone younger and would likely want a loan.}


1.) 25 Aug 2019 20:00:39
I'd hope that we can keep lovren for this season if he is willing to wait another year before moving on. He's a great experienced option to have as backup and with us pushing this season to finally win that elusive league I hope he can be convinced to play his part when needed with the promise that next summer he will be given full control to choose his future.

We won't be realistically seeing a massive difference in his financial worth over 12 months so unless he is adamant he wants out this summer it would be sensible to try and keep him for now. Another year of development with van den berg and Hoever might see them being ready next season to replace lovren as first team option and if not then we will have time to pursue signing a lovren replacement.

I guess it all hinges on lovrens personal wishes right now and we should respect his choice as he's been a good servant to the club over the years. Any idea ED what his standing is? Is he pushing for transfer this year or would he be willing to remain a squad player for another season?

{Ed002's Note - He is getting older and wants to play regularly.}


2.) 25 Aug 2019 21:43:08
Considering his age, it should be a sale. If it's a loan, then it should be with an obligation to buy.


3.) 25 Aug 2019 22:24:04
I have respect for him wanting to play regularly and looking to take a step down in quality of team to achieve that and fully support him if he wants out. He's still got a potential 4 or 5 years that he can play in a top league so I'm hoping he can decide to give us another year before departing, . I'm sure any potential transfer this summer hinges on whether klopp feels that one of the youngsters can be competent enough to be used.


 

 

14 Aug 2019 08:13:03
Ed001 have we ever shown any interest in psv pair Hirving Lozano and Steven Bergwijn and what do you think about the pair of them .

grino75

{Ed001's Note - no and neither look good enough to me.}


1.) 15 Aug 2019 12:36:32
ED1- was it not yourself who championed Lozano for a while? Or was that ED2?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know. I did think he might be a decent bet after seeing a few performances, but I don't remember recommending him for Liverpool. He looks very good when you watch a game, but if you sit and watch him play, like I did recently for his profile, his flaws are massively evident.}


2.) 15 Aug 2019 20:36:38
Sometimes you have to watch a player closely to make a proper judgement. I had non- Liverpool (and Liverpool) fans who used to think Luis Garcia was amazing, I personally found him infuriating to watch, similarly it’s the opposite with Firmino.


 

 

29 Jul 2019 16:36:06
ed002 have your heard of any interest in Francois Kamano from Liverpool? thanks.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - I haven’t but I am aware of talks with Torino and Sampdoria.}


1.) 29 Jul 2019 21:25:01
Shame would be a good addition.

big Virgil turns down Barcelona enquiry. Shows how far we have come.

grino75

1.) 12 Jul 2019 14:24:22
Why would he want to move to perennial euro semi-finalists?


2.) 12 Jul 2019 16:02:37
If the story is even true!


3.) 12 Jul 2019 16:42:57
While I'm sure he would turn them down considering his past comments about Liverpool. They can't afford him anyway, likely just a rumour.


4.) 12 Jul 2019 17:43:17
Never happened.


5.) 12 Jul 2019 18:00:14
Didn’t know Barcelona had a spare billion euros!


6.) 12 Jul 2019 18:07:05
Wasn't there some ridiculous clause about how much extra Barcelona had to pay for one of our players? Or is that just paper BS?


7.) 12 Jul 2019 18:07:05
Wasn't there some ridiculous clause about how much extra Barcelona had to pay for one of our players? Or is that just paper BS?


8.) 12 Jul 2019 19:15:32
I thought it was just that the full Coutinho fee would become payable if they buy another of our players. Wonder how that would work if he leaves.


9.) 12 Jul 2019 19:32:01
I think they're stuck with Coutinho for the time being. There's only a handful of clubs than can afford him, and I don't think any of them are interested.

I think the only viable destination this summer is Manchester United, but he's already ruled himself out of that move. Maybe Chelsea in a year. Or maybe they can offload him to PSG as part of a deal for Neymar.


10.) 13 Jul 2019 04:47:13
There's no way they could afford him anyway. Griezmann and De Jong at big money, then they're looking to sign Neymar for even more, and they still haven't reduced their wage bill with Suarez, Messi, Couts, Dembele etc still banging about.


11.) 13 Jul 2019 07:50:32
Virgil is happy for now but I wouldn’t be surprised in a year or two if Real Madrid or Barcelona show serious interest that he will push to leave.


12.) 13 Jul 2019 07:51:53
Yea the rumours I’ve heard (websites etc) is that Barcelona want to include him in the neymar deal. But still be interesting to know how that clause would work if he’s sold.


13.) 13 Jul 2019 09:32:36
Could this alleged approach be considered tapping up eds?

{Ed002's Note - Of course it isn't. But putting aside all of the completely stupid responses, perhaps van Dijk would do to Liverpool what Liverpool had him do to Southampton?}


14.) 13 Jul 2019 11:18:09
Was just about to say the same Ed002. The absolute biased blinkered rubbish some Liverpool fans spout is vomit inducing. I'm a Liverpool fan and love Virgil, but I'm under no illusions that if he feels the move would be better for him that he wouldn't push for it. Same goes for any player. It's about time some fans opened their eyes and got used to the fact that liverpool isn't the centre of the universe for these players. It's a job, and as in all walks of life people change jobs for what THEY perceive to be a better opportunity.


15.) 13 Jul 2019 22:51:31
Whether this story is true or not I never really understand peoples surprise if one of our players leaves. Real Madrid and Barcelona and PSG all pay considerably higher wages, why wouldn't you go? Neymar left Barcelona after all. What'
s Bale on in Spain more than he'd get in the premier league I imagine,


 

 

29 Jun 2019 09:44:42
ed002 just see Palace are odds on favourites to sign Clyne. Do they hold any true interest or just a case of 1+1=3 because they sold Wan-Bissaka.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - The odds are meaningless of course. CP have had a bid or two rejected for their first choice and have moved on to their second choice, but he is attracting attention from other PL sides and they have a third choice they have made contact for only to be told there are two Italian sides trying to strike a deal involving players in exchange. Then comes Clyne but the money needs to be reduced a bunch.}


1.) 29 Jun 2019 13:48:11
ed002 what's your thoughts on Clyne he gets loads of stick on here. Am not sure myself he is as bad as everybody says. Thanks Ed have a good weekend.

{Ed002's Note - He could provide the cover required at RB if a buyer cannot be found.}


2.) 29 Jun 2019 14:38:28
Clyne receives much criticism here due to his lifestyle. However if Liverpool have no intention of ever playing him, then why not ask for a realistic transfer fee to move him on.


3.) 29 Jun 2019 15:16:02
GFlash IMO, Clyne to me, was always a poor player and Klopp had been trying to get rid since the summer of 2016 and IMO, it is why he fast-tracked TAA to the first team as a RB. Clyne is a poor defender who lacks end product offensively, can't cross, can't defend and is a ball-watcher who is half the time, out of position. Sure he is a good athlete BUT we know good athletes don't always make good footballers. See Kyle Walker. All of these have nothing to do with his lifestyle cos I observed all these BEFORE I kneww anything about his lifestyle.


4.) 29 Jun 2019 16:02:07
Fair enough Redwolf, I only mentioned his poor lifestyle as Edo1 had previously mentioned it. With all that in mind, maybe Liverpool should drop their asking price to move him on as Edo2 has mentioned.


5.) 29 Jun 2019 18:26:50
Clyne did well as cover against Man Utd.
I dont think it would be a disaster if he was RB cover and Mignolet was second choice keeper.
Clynes lifestyle I cannot comment on but if it is so poor, then Liverpool should just move him on.


6.) 29 Jun 2019 18:43:59
There is a reason why Clyne is not in the picture. The club want rid and that surely says enough about the situation.

There must be a reason why Bournemouth do not want to take the option to sign him permanently either otherwise they would have made an offer after loaning him.


7.) 29 Jun 2019 22:23:57
Just let him go even if the fee is minimal, hes not gunna play and he doesnt seem like a top guy. If he wants a football career he has the chance to make one then.


8.) 30 Jun 2019 16:50:35
Whats minimal? 4.5.mill? why should we, we shoud easily be able to bring in between 10-12m for Clyne with the silly prices going round these days.

Ed001 Just seen a report that new balance hoping to beat Nike to carry on being are kit manufacturer with Nike's offer a reported to be £1bn. That would be massive statement if we get a deal like that. Club keeps going from strength to strength owners really are doing a fantastic job. Hope the Anfield road end gets sorted soon and the owners are here for a long time, can't believe how much they have turned are club round.
YNWA.

1.) 14 Sep 2019 10:57:04
So do I Grino, I just hope they allocate more seats to the season ticket waiting list than they did for the main stand.


2.) 14 Sep 2019 11:56:10
Hopefully that influx is used to convince Klopp. He is beyond comparison.


3.) 14 Sep 2019 12:02:35
everybody loves a good 'statement'.


 

 

01 Sep 2019 16:02:49
any of the eds or anybody that knows when is are winter break.

grino75

{Ed047's Note - Feb next year grino, they’ll still be fixtures each of the weekends but only 5 games each weekend so everyone will effectively get a week off.


1.) 01 Sep 2019 19:32:43
ed047 is it not said what week we will get off yet thanks ed.

{Ed047's Note - The 1st and 8th Feb are the two weekends with only 5 games grino.


2.) 02 Sep 2019 10:27:44
Thanks Ed.

{Ed047's Note - you’re welcome grino


 

 

01 Sep 2019 11:42:45
ed001 what is going on with Matip's contract. Is there an offer on the table for him or if not has there been any talks. Seems very strange to let him get this low in his contract I would have thought after is form from the start of the year we would have sorted this out in the summer.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - it is not as easy as that. He was not keen at the time as he was not sure what would be happening. I expect it to be sorted during the international break as he is now settled in the back line.}


1.) 01 Sep 2019 13:05:37
hope so ed001 his turn around has been brilliant what's your thoughts on him over the last 8 months.

{Ed001's Note - he has worked hard on improving his game and taken it to a new level. I have been extremely impressed with him, though he does need to stop giving away possession with his passing. He is an excellent passer but sometimes he tries too hard to thread the needle.}


2.) 01 Sep 2019 14:28:24
Same here, Ed01. Matip used to be a DM and honed his passing skills there in his earlier days at Schalke. He is an excellent passer of the ball esp. when no pressure is on him. He just needs have better decision-making as we could get unstuck were he to give the ball away in a dangerous position.

{Ed001's Note - he is learning so hopefully this will be the next thing he improves.}


3.) 01 Sep 2019 14:42:12
I think he should rewatch the game yesterday because one of our goals came from a slack pass and is proof how easily and quickly that the better teams can exploit simple mistakes!


4.) 01 Sep 2019 16:54:20
Johnny I think you’ll find at any point in a game every one of our players will have given the ball away. Hardly a stick to beat Matip with because Burnley conceded from a loose pass. Hardly his fault that.


5.) 01 Sep 2019 22:14:05
Ed, do you think gomez should get back in sooner or later? He’s obviously the better talent, but with matip and vvd playing well, you can’t really change it at the moment. I’d like to see matip and Gomez in the cup, see if they can be a paid if needed, but sure Lovren or de berg will play then.

{Ed001's Note - I would only change it if Matip or VVD's form dips. Otherwise keep them together, unless there is an injury.}


6.) 02 Sep 2019 19:04:47
Gomez will have to wait his turn. Last season, Gomez and VVD were ripping it and Matip had to wait his turn. Why should Matip be benched when he is at the peak of his powers just so Gomez can get in? If Gomez wants to get back in, he will have to rip that shirt off Matip's back. If he can't then he should enjoy his role on the bench or sub appearances. That's how football works.


 

 

27 Aug 2019 17:39:22
ed001 with reports that Roma have come back in for Lovren I see us selling him and getting the price we want for him. I think at the prices been said between £15m-£20m is a bargain in this day and age. I am very surprised that more clubs have not come in for him at that price. Would have been a great signing for Arsenal ed what are your thoughts.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - would he have had any interest in joining Arsenal?}


1.) 27 Aug 2019 19:10:08
Imagine a pairing of David luiz and Lovren!

{Ed047's Note - you trying to depress me! It’s bad enough that I can’t wait to see Luiz and Mustafi play together! 😱


2.) 27 Aug 2019 19:30:35
Go three at the back?

{Ed047's Note - Jesus Southern, Lovren, Mustafi and Luiz, would you really wish that on me? 😂😂


3.) 27 Aug 2019 19:38:11
Ed047, The Keystone Cops doesn't even begin to describe the level of incompetence in that Luiz/ Mustafi pairing.

{Ed047's Note - Red if Emery ever plays that pairing he’ll need stringing up!


4.) 27 Aug 2019 19:54:59
{Ed047's Note - Red if Emery ever plays that pairing he’ll need stringing up!
========================================
Don't want to depress you mate but you are one injury away from a Luiz/ Mustafi pairing .
Luiz can really work for you guys, offensively . he is one of the best passers of the ball, Emery should go back to route 1, I can really see you scoring loads of goals from Luiz long range pass for Aubameyang and Pepe to chase .

{Ed047's Note - Roy, we’ve got Chambers, Holding, Mavropanos and Medley who I’d play instead of either of them and Monreal could even fill in! 😂

He will also need stringing up if he plays long ball mate! 😂


5.) 27 Aug 2019 21:13:11
It worked for George Graham Ed!?

{Ed047's Note - I wouldn’t mind him coming back as long it was just to teach us how to defend juicer


6.) 28 Aug 2019 00:23:02
It wasn’t so long ago you’d be ripped on here for saying matip was better than lovren!


7.) 27 Aug 2019 21:21:51
Nothing wrong with the long ball every now and then . one of Torres best goals for us is 40->50 yard pass from Carragher, 2 touches from Torres and bang passed the Blackburn keeper. it wasn't long ball . it was super long pass.

{Ed047's Note - I’m all for a super long pass Roy, 3 or 4 of those in a game that end in a goal will do me.


8.) 27 Aug 2019 22:16:25
Ed047 Lovren is better than all your Cb and would have been a good signing with what you have.

{Ed047's Note - 🤔 not quite sure I’m having that one grino 😂


9.) 28 Aug 2019 19:47:09
Ed047, Lovs is better than Mustafi, Holding, Luiz and Sokratis, IMO. Why? Simple. I don't back ANY of your lot to be able to shut down CR7 in a CL final like he did last year or shut down every CF that came his way in the last WC, all the things Lovs achieved. Do you?

{Ed047's Note - correct me if I’m wrong but you lost to Madrid and Lovs didn’t win the World Cup.

Mustafi on the other hand IS a World Cup winner.

Luiz on the other hand has 1 x Premier League, 1 x Champions League, 2 x Europa League, 2 x French titles, 1 x Portuguese title, 2 x FA Cup winner and has won 7 other cups.

🤷‍♂️😉


 

 

26 Aug 2019 13:22:21
ed001 and ed002 would like both of your views if possible thanks. Just seen a report that Klopp might be hinting at leaving when his contract ends in 3 years that would make it 7years like his other 2 jobs. He did not say that just that if he needs a break he will go so with that if he does not sign a new contract within the next year or so I do think his time will come to an end then. If that is the case will the club be looking at a new manger soon to plan ahead. my be Steven Gerrard don't know if he is the long term plan if so do you think in Klopp's last year he might come back to the club to work with Klopp so the transition is smooth like in are best era.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - I hope not. I would much rather we just looked at who is best suited to the role, rather than who once played for the club. Gerrard might well be the right man, but let's wait and see. Personally I would say Pep Lijnders is more of a smooth transition choice if that is the route to go down.}


1.) 26 Aug 2019 13:51:51
I'm not a massive fan of Stevie's work so far in Scotland. Buys way too many players every summer, always complaining. I don't like how he criticizes the players. And Scotland results is not a good judge.

Lijnders is my second choice for sure.
First being Klopp signing a lifetime contract with no holidays.


2.) 26 Aug 2019 14:12:16
It's almost traumatising to think about. If it has to happen, I would personally want Lijnders to take over. A lot can happen in 3 years, but I think Stevie needs experience in a more competitive league, maybe even abroad, before he's ready.


3.) 26 Aug 2019 14:12:39
Julian Nagelsmann for me!


4.) 26 Aug 2019 14:33:11
Davey Sulls, I can partially agree on other aspects of Gerrard's management, but he's signing so many players because he has to, to bridge the gap to Celtic.

You have to remember that Rangers were a lower league side for years and are only now starting to get near to Celtic.


5.) 26 Aug 2019 14:52:45
Disaster when it happens. Enjoy the Now! You knew it was the beggining of the end when all rumours of a new contract after the final didn't materialise.


6.) 26 Aug 2019 15:08:18
Epic Potato
20 signings in his first season
10 signings this season with more to follow.

Plenty of loans but that is bloody crazy no matter what the situation.


7.) 26 Aug 2019 15:27:59
Hope god it’s not Gerard! He’s in a Mickey Mouse league try slug it out in the championship see how he gets on! Monda.


8.) 26 Aug 2019 15:46:29
If the worst did happen then it has to be Pepe Lijnders. As for Stevie still not enough experience. Also have to agree with Davey a lifetime contract with no holiday's.


9.) 26 Aug 2019 16:05:15
For me like I have said before I hope never to see Steve Gerrard as Liverpool manager
I woould hope to have the current dortmund manager if klopp was to leave tomorrow but 3 years is a very long time and if we are then as we are now we will have our pick of anyone in world football other then pep.


10.) 26 Aug 2019 16:47:29
Another vote against Gerrard. What a step down that would be.

Klopp is currently one of the best managers in the world. I don't see Gerrard ever reaching that level.


11.) 26 Aug 2019 17:07:36
I don't think Fsg would be daft enough to consider Gerrard unless he does something really special in the next few years which is very unlikely. I think there is as little chance of them considering Lijnders either, which, for me would be the correct decision.


12.) 26 Aug 2019 17:09:40
I don't know the statistics and I could easily be wrong but my impression is that there are more famous ex-players who flopped at coaching/ management than those who have succeeded. It's also my impression that it's actually average or less than average players who have excelled at coaching (Guardiola and Klopp immediately come to mind) . Given the financial and social importance professional sports teams have nowadays, the last thing I would do is to appoint team management based entirely on nostalgia and a misguided sense of romanticism.

If Gerrard wants the Anfield top job then let him topple Celtic first, win some titles over there and then come back to the EPL and do a good job with another team too. Then we'll know. Kicking 30 yard screamers into the net some years ago as a player for LFC, shouldn't automatically qualify you for team management some years later.

{Ed025's Note - and having the personality of an ice cube does,nt help ArAy..


13.) 26 Aug 2019 17:22:09
I remember reading that when Dalglish needed a break after all the emotional energy used up after Hillsborough, the club wouldn’t give him a sabbatical and went with a permanent appointment (Souness? ) .

I absolutely love Klopp. Please don’t be making the same mistake. We can put in a caretaker if and when he needs a break. Frankly I wouldn’t even care if the whole team took off a year. It would be heart breaking to see Klopp anywhere else apart from Liverpool.


14.) 26 Aug 2019 17:24:38
All very pointless speculation.
FSG have put some good people in place at the club now to make decisions such as this, they’ve barely put a foot wrong for the past 3 or 4 years, and so I think we’re much better placed to move ahead after Klopp when the time comes.


15.) 26 Aug 2019 17:27:02
LOL Ed025. Are you suggesting a job in Sweden or Norway then? (I advise caution with your response, before the "red-tinted specs" and "deluded" brigade gather around you in a flash mob, LOL) .

{Ed025's Note - im suggesting a job where the people around him dont mind being bored ArAy...are their any stewards jobs going at anfield mate?.. :)


16.) 26 Aug 2019 18:54:33
Personally, I would not want Gerrard anywhere near Liverpool when Klopp eventually leaves us. No way! He is not ready to take up what is right now and hopefully when Klopp leaves, the biggest job in club football. Maybe he will come good later BUT for right now, the whole "he was a club legend" stuff is a non starter for me. He needs to go prove himself in a better league with better opposition and better players.

After all, Klopp had to prove himself from Mainz in the German lower division to CL Champion and LFC legend. If we have learnt anything from the disaster that plagued KK's return or the dross that OGS is serving up at Utd, we must learn that these "club legend" types for the most part, are terrible managers.

Like Ed01, I want the best guy for the job and hopefully, there will be great candidates we can choose from (Lucian Favre, Naggelsmann, etc) and I would not mind Pep Ljinders cos he would have been by Klopp the whole time and the players would definitely respect him and willing to work for and with him cos he has been there and done that.


17.) 26 Aug 2019 19:00:17
Don’t want Jurgen to make the same mistake as a Shankly and retire too soon.

Happy for him to take a break and come back fresh.

He could maybe get the league won in January 2022 then take February to June off and come back for pre season.

Klopp can build a new side in 3 years or so when this side will be in need of some refreshing.


18.) 26 Aug 2019 20:14:57
Lets all worry about it if it happens like always enjoy the situation it is at the moment we’re very strong side with good players and great man manager just soak it up
Up the pool.


19.) 27 Aug 2019 07:01:54
3 years is a long time in football. Funny how people say Gerrard should gain experience first etc who's to say in the next 3 years he won't? I don't particularly care at this stage what names are thrown about as they mean absolutely nothing.


20.) 27 Aug 2019 09:22:01
geez some people are realyl quick to slag off stevie. I mean I'm not a fan, but in 3 years time who knows? If he is the best available or comparable to whoever else is available then he would be the best option imo.

{Ed025's Note - he would certainly be my preferred option faith.. :)


21.) 27 Aug 2019 23:11:29
3 years is impossible to say who will or won't be best fit. Gerrard can only be the right choice if he proves his credentials in that time and if not, legend or not he shouldn't be put in charge on merit alone. United and Chelsea currently have 2 ex players with zero managerial credentials to warrant their role. We've seen shearer at Newcastle, Henry at Monaco, di matteo at Chelsea, dalglish 2nd Liverpool spell were all hired despite no proof they were capable of the job. Someone like ljinders might learn a lot under klopp and Gerrard might succeed in rangers and come to PL and have success to warrant the huge Liverpool job but without those guys proving their worth you have to hire the best manager for the job whether he's a Scouser or Japanese.


22.) 28 Aug 2019 02:54:30
I feel like Pep Ljinders is a career assistant manager.

also di matteo won the champions league

I am sure they'll weigh everything up. Like it is a dream that Klopp is a great manager / coach AND has the character / personality that is a perfect match for Liverpool FC and the city.

Stevie, with slightly lesser credentials than other options could simply be a better fit because the overall fit of him at the club and city outweigh another candidate who has the credentials y'know?

Anyway, this is really ages away hahaha Klopp might go on a barren run like he did in his final year at dortmund and be gone sooner lol.

I see Gerrard as another Souness moment waiting to happen. If and when Klopp goes, it has to go to the best man for the job, not be based on some kind of sentimental nepotism.

The worrying thing about klopp maybe leaving in 3 years is that most of the key players are around 26/ 27 meaning he would leave just as the team is in need of a major rebuild. I would hope that he would look to leave the future nice and rosey before he leaves and spends the next few windows looking at players that might be peaking in 2 or 3 years around that potential date.

ed002 it was you that said it was his replacement. so if so comparisons will be made and if Firmino had left us in the summer to expect Brewster to fill his role at his age would have been a big ask. And both them players might go on to be better in the long run. And its nice to see the young English players getting a chance. But my point was in Chelsea's and Utd time at the minute it will be easier for the young players to get a chance as Liverpool at the minute have a stronger team.

{Ed002's Note - He is a replacement - clubs do not make comparisons like that.}

ed002 as an Englishman I hope Hudson Odoi turns into a player as good as Hazard but that's a lot to expect from a young player to fill his boots for me he had been the best player in are league for a very long time.

Ed002 who was hazards replacement and my point was none of young players would be getting into there teams if they had are first 11. But I hope Brewster does get plenty of game time. As for greenwood am sure if true be told ole would have liked to have signed another forward but with are transfer window closing early it did not help with selling Lukaku after.

mftonjes can't really compare are youngsters to Chelsea and Utd with Chelsea's strikers they had signed not working out that give Abraham's a chance with the transfer ban, and losing Hazzard has left a big hole with no chance to replace him. As for Utd when you look at there match day squad there signing have been so poor and on such big wages getting rid of them before replacing them is the hardest thing to do so it gives them not a lot of choice with the players they have signed and how they have played. It's hard enough for us to go and sign a player good enough to get into are team let alone a youngster get into the first team but we do have Trent and Gomez around the first team. As for Brewster he is still coming back from a very long lay off.

{Ed002's Note - There was no problem with Hazzard as the club already had a replacement.}

Ed001 I know there is not a lot off good players up there but the Scottish teams seem to won’t top prices for there players when selling but never expect to pay anything when buying well Celtic and rangers do any way and just bully every team up there and get there players for next to nothing. But I do think the club should have given him another loan he seemed to get better as the season went in so as long as they was paying all his wages it would have only benefited all 3 parties.

{Ed001's Note - Rangers have only just recently got back on their feet, it is not bullying to not want to overpay.}

I thought last season Bobby was far from his best but this season he has been are stand out player in the first 5 games he for me is are best player with VVD and does not get the credit he deserves when he does have a bad game we do not look the same side. And I did Watch Kenny and Beardsley and he is not up there with Kenny but I would put him on a par with Beardsley.

ed002 you all ways say we are now trying to buy success was we not trying that before? And can you name one of the top prem sides that does not. Are spending compared to city is nowhere near the same but I would not say there is lot in both teams. young players can't get into the first team if nowhere near good enough unless we want to be a mid table team.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - Not to the extent the club are doing so now. The question was about Liverpool not other clubs. It is a change of direction that Klopp now embraces as his promise of success using the youngsters was naive and unfulfilled.}

for me he all ways looks better live at the ground than on tv. But I don't think with his quality he could do more going forward. The second leg away to city the other year in the champions league first half he was awful then straight away in the second half he drove straight through the midfield and was like a different players second half. I think I see ed001 say before about him the only thing he had against him when everybody thought ed did not rate him was he had seen how good he was and he was all ways playing within himself. But he was great last season. but he should score more goals without a doubt.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - spot on grino, that is what I said. I think there is still more to come from him, he has the ability to be talked about with the Silvas and De Bruyne, as well as workrate. He just needs to believe in himself more, as he has the lot.}

my brother got 3 from one of them sites before and everything was ok. A couple from the US was sat next to me for the Barcelona game they got there's of stubhub did pay £750 a ticket but that game was worth it lol. I just don't like the thought that I try to buy tickets for every game and struggle to get tickets and there is people get them all the time just to put them on sites like that if you have 4 tickets for most games nearly don't need to work if you do. I was hopping to get tickets for the Newcastle game as am driving my daughter up for uni that weekend but refuse to pay of them sites. Or what the club charge for the hospitality.

There selling on stubhub and all them type sites for about £250 each I would not like to buy one from there at that price but that’s just sometimes the only way till the club somehow put an end to it.
