With us playing this new style and formation could we not play the front 3 as last season and play Shaqiri in the number 10 role, bobby not looking the same player there and Mo runs from right to centre when bobby drops in the hole and pulls the defenders out is really missing this season.

I was thinking the same, but there doesn't seem to be the same intensity off the ball with the press etc, which think I understand from this site is intentional so our players don't burn out? Arguably, it feels like city (in particular) still have more quality depth in each position allowing them to rotate more and retain a level of intensity. To qualify that, generally if our front 3 are fit in a competitive game they end to play, where as city interchange between 2 options for each position and you can't easily predict the selection. I would imagine at least Bobby would likely have been rested/ rotated if Klippers trusted Sturridge/ others, although that might change after the mighty Divock threatens to live up to his potential.! Or i'd guess in the summer window if funds allow and a few leave?


2.) 03 Dec 2018 19:29:47
I am a bit bemused by this tactical change as it does seem to have blunted our edge a little. I get the reduced intensity thing but I'm sure we can still achieve that by having our front 3 playing in the same formation as last season. But what do I know, and why am I complaining when we're doing very well at the moment in the league.


3.) 04 Dec 2018 07:09:32
For me Firmino is still the vital cog with the movement he does without the ball being the most important part of our offense.
Even if Salah has really improved he's off-the-ball game, we still cannot afford to drop Firmino in big games.
Mid 3 of Keita, Fabinho and Shaqiri is what i expect to happen more and more.


4.) 04 Dec 2018 16:15:58
I for one think Bobby is are best player just pure class, but I think this formation and role is nullifying both him and Salah a bit as well. I do think there is something missing from are midfield 3 and Klopp is trying to get the mix right and with are back 4 and supper goalkeepers who is the best keeper I have seen play for Liverpool since I started watching them in the early 80s when Grobbelaar was number 1 so seen few goalkeepers. So 1-0 seems to be enough to win a game for the first time since Rafa was here so it will be interesting to see us against where we could do with a few goals early on because I know 1-0 will do but no one will won't it to be 1-0 with 10ins to go.
sorry for the rant YNWA.


5.) 04 Dec 2018 16:17:37
We are still winning people 🤷🏼‍♂️.


6.) 07 Dec 2018 20:54:28
Remember why Bobby is playing there? Fekir was our top target and was set to play behind the front 3. He is not only highly skilful, great at set pieces and scores heaps but also great at winning back possession. Once that transfer got stalled JK had to change plans. Throw in Nab and Fab taking longer than anticipated to settle, Ox being injured and the front 3 playing at about 30% of last seasons form and there you have the reasons why we look a bit toothless compared to last season. Of course we'll be looking for someone like Fekir. (or maybe him at a reduced price? ) to play that role that has been ear-marked for the new set up. When that happens and others come into form we will be at the very top alongside the best sides on the planet.

hi eds any news on Emre Can's injury. or do you think he has kicked his last ball for the club, as he has made his mind up to join a local rival.
P. S not Everton lol.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - he is highly unlikely to play again this season.}


1.) 24 Apr 2018 10:10:38
Is it down to injury or what grino said about a rival. thanks.

{Ed001's Note - is this is a serious question? He is injured, what on earth would the other have to do with anything?}


2.) 24 Apr 2018 12:04:43
regardless of where he will be next season, he will be gutted to not be a part of this push for top 4 and champions league!

he is not feigning injury he has back problems! i hope he gets better soon!


3.) 24 Apr 2018 17:36:34
We move on to the players that want to play for the shirt!


4.) 24 Apr 2018 21:50:22
Guys he hasn't got the back injury (Coutinhoitis) so I presume he's not faking it.


 

 

03 Jan 2018 10:40:45
Do you think the club want Philippe Coutinho gone this January transfer window? All this can't be good for squad moral. For me the Summer would have made sense for all 3 parties, but Coutinho just wants out now. If he does stay and does not play all January then that won't help the club, as when he comes back, he's not going to be match fit again. Just got to get rid now.

grino75

1.) 03 Jan 2018 11:00:34
I want to keep him but if we sell him i hope we get keita now.


2.) 03 Jan 2018 11:17:53
We took a risk in the summer and in fairness it paid off as his attacking stats this season have been his best yet and unbelievably his defensive stats have been very similar to last season. However if we keep him this window I'm not sure if it will pay off again and could very easily come back to haunt us. It's a massive decision and I'm glad it's not me making it.


3.) 03 Jan 2018 11:52:48
I think whatever happens the club will want everything done out of the spotlight, last summer was ridiculous, if I was running the club I would be making it very clear to Coutinho that anymore antics by himself or his “concerned” family will only complicate matters and reduce the chance of a transfer, also make it perfectly clear to Barcelona what the price is and once it’s met they can have him and make it clear as well that we won’t accept any of this to be played out in public by them or anyone connected to them.


4.) 03 Jan 2018 12:07:51
Clubs am sure would want keeps but Couts wants gones. this Januari.


5.) 03 Jan 2018 12:47:17
I'll take whatever RBL is on.


6.) 03 Jan 2018 16:45:25
Eds what is the chance of getting keita this January.

{Ed002's Note - Try the search engine.}


 

 

18 Jul 2017 07:28:53
hi eds any truth in the Maxi Romero link.

grino75

{Ed025's Note - liverpool have been looking at him grino but as yet have not made an offer mate..


1.) 18 Jul 2017 11:16:48
Yes, but have we agreed terms with him yet? The offer can follow at some point 😉.


2.) 18 Jul 2017 11:51:50
I think we'll face a serious WP issue.


3.) 18 Jul 2017 11:55:19
Now I'm reading he had a CL injury. to get this kind of injury at 16 years of age. poor lad.


4.) 18 Jul 2017 17:37:15
Mammana and Romero - that's two players I signed in FM that were linked with us over the summer.

Which journo's raided my save? Expect links to Ben Davies, Lincoln, Konrad Laimer and Andre Schurrle soon.


5.) 18 Jul 2017 19:36:38
Lol -Something Red-

I guess since I haven't played FM for a few years they have moved onto new people xD

I signed Coutinho on FIFA13 and FM because he was called Phil and had crazy hair like me when I get out of bed. My dad always said laughing, "It’s you" every time we came across him in UT so we had to get him.

Then half a year later we signed him an wow what a signing!
Guess I need to find us some gems again haha

Anyway back on track, if we are going to buy a striker we only need a proper ready made 20+goals striker. We have enough young prospects all trying to break through and Solanke has already pushed some down.


 

 

30 Sep 2016 20:54:07
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.

ed001 how has Sheyi Ojo loan gone this season, There was high hopes for him a few years back wondering what's going on with him. and if there is still any hope off him having any sort of carer at Liverpool? thanks ed.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - from what I have been told, not that well. I think there is more chance of him getting a carer than a career that's for sure.}


1.) 15 Apr 2019 13:25:00
carer lol nice touch ed001.


2.) 15 Apr 2019 13:28:03
and one more if you don't mind ed001 Marko Grujic is he going to get a chance next season or do you think his time is over?

{Ed001's Note - tough one. He has impressed but not sure he has impressed enough. I would expect, unless he decides to leave, that he will be given a shot in preseason to impress and that will be when a decision is made.}


3.) 15 Apr 2019 14:11:50
I think him and Wilson should be loaned to premier league clubs next season to see if they can cut the mustard. Newcastle would be ideal for both.


4.) 15 Apr 2019 14:13:43
😂 love it Ed.


5.) 15 Apr 2019 14:43:59
Wilson should be recalled to the squad imo. He has proved he can perform. The championship is a hard league and small attacking players struggle often. But, wilson has proved he can do it under pressure.

Tbh, id forgotton all about grujic. Obviously has talent but we have so many midfielders. I think we will sell and make a good profit.


6.) 15 Apr 2019 15:07:44
I don't personally see Wilson as good enough. He's got a beauty of a left peg and great technique. I don't see his other stand out qualities that tell me he's good enough for Liverpool. I think he has a promising career ahead and I hope klopp at least gives him some time in pre season.


7.) 15 Apr 2019 15:47:11
I hope our young players like Wilson and Grujic stay patient and get experience on loan elsewhere. Our best players over the last few seasons have all been in their mid to late 20s. Klopp, Edwards, and co seem to have hit on a good formula for recruiting players who are already tried and tested and in their prime to challenge for trophies.


8.) 15 Apr 2019 16:34:57
Ed1, Ojo had a back injury if I remember correctly a couple of years ago, is it because of that hasn't done any good? or is there more to it? I know he was out quite a while because of the back injury (god knows how long but it was a while) . The reason I ask is I've barely seen his name mentioned since then!

It's a shame really because he was looking so promising until that injury, now I think it's clear for all to see, he doesn't have a future at Liverpool. It just goes to show how quickly things can change, especially at such a young age.

Lerchy, I completely agree. I'd love to see Wilson given his chance at Liverpool next season but I have my doubts if he'll be ready for this level. I think the best bet is to see how he does in pre season before deciding whether to send him out on loan or not but if we were to then it needs to be a PL club. I just hope he's patient enough.

{Ed001's Note - that has clearly held him back, but I am not sure he was as good as though. Looks like another youngster who just developed physically ahead of the rest and so was quicker and stronger than most of those he faced, making him look better.}


9.) 15 Apr 2019 16:55:00
Yeah to be honest that makes sense now you put it like that Ed. I mean I probably saw him play up to MAYBE 10 times or so (so not a great deal tbh) and he looked promising from what I saw but yeah he wasn't the most skilful player, just very physical like you say, especially for that age. Ah well, you win some, you lose some. Good luck to the lad in the future, I have a feeling he's going to need a hell of a lot of luck with his career. Cheers mate.


10.) 15 Apr 2019 19:15:32
Thanks Salah I think it would be good for Grujic too as unfortunately the bundesliga isn’t quite what it was a few years ago.

{Ed002's Note - There is no guarantee he will get a work permit.}


11.) 15 Apr 2019 21:16:01
If Wilson were to get a loan to a prem team it would need to be a certain style of team. Bournemouth would suit him and hed also have to fight and earn his place. He's 22 or 23 when next season starts. Time to step up now if you want to be a prem league footballer. I feel klopp isn't convinced by him yet. But it would be nice if he could step up his game like Madisson and Brooks have since coming up a tier.


12.) 15 Apr 2019 21:04:07
Ahh that’s a shame, thanks for reminding me ed.


13.) 16 Apr 2019 03:53:49
Wilson getting a loan to a Prem side would be perfect for him as he needs to continue to get starts to improve IMO and that will be tough with our front 3.

Grujic getting another season and lots of game time in Bundesleague would also be perfect given how many midfielders we currently have.


14.) 16 Apr 2019 10:26:32
Can't argue with any of that, SGRed as a loan to a prem club would be very helpful for Wilson's development.


 

 

03 Mar 2019 11:05:20
ed001 if your about I know it is hard to compare players. But with Rhian Brewster nearly back from injury. Where would you compare him to other young strikers we have like Fowler Owen and Sinclair potential wise.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - I haven't seen enough of him to compare him to anyone mate sorry.}


1.) 03 Mar 2019 13:36:33
Can’t compare him to those mentioned at the same age, but from what I’ve seen of him so far

1) good movement, there’s a bit of the fox in the box about him
2) makes consistently good contact, and has very good technique when striking at goal - unlike Solanke who scored a lot of goals but didn’t seem to always strike the ball with precision
3) good pace and link play

I think it’s hard to put too much pressure on him as he is young and still some way off proving he can do it in the PL but I think he will suit the way we play a lot more than Sturridge. He’s not ready to be a no.2 to Firmino though and I’d rather see him as a 3rd or 4th option.


 

 

27 Jan 2019 10:29:12
hi ed001 is there any news on if Trent will be available for the Leicester game, and any news on Gomez and Lovern return dates. thanks ed001.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - Klopp said Lovren will be fit for Leicester but Trent is doubtful. Gomez is not expected back for a while yet, middle of the month.}


1.) 27 Jan 2019 10:41:57
Think we could see Camacho Ed001? Milner is banned (thank God because Gray would go past him as easy as Zaha did) so there aren't many alternatives unless we utilise Fabinho's versatility. I still think he's too vital in the midfield to drop deeper though.

{Ed001's Note - Klopp has certainly hinted that Camacho is a possibility if Trent does not make it.}


2.) 27 Jan 2019 11:34:27
If Camacho plays the big call for me is who is inside of him. Lovren is a Decent centre half but if he is given the responsibility of looking after a youngster as well as himself it could be a recipe for disaster.

{Ed025's Note - i would not have lovren in charge of making a jelly JK..


3.) 27 Jan 2019 10:58:14
Do you no if Fabs is likely fit also Ed?

{Ed001's Note - according to Klopp he would be.}


4.) 27 Jan 2019 12:13:07
Cheers Ed. Tbh mate I think we have plenty of cover and options for the RB spot for just 1 or 2 games until TAA is back. Hopefully Gomez a few weeks away like you say also we should have our preferred 1st choice back 4 in place mud Feb.

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed!}


5.) 27 Jan 2019 12:39:26
If Wijnaldum is back, then I think we can cope for the next 1 or 2 games. It's Gomez that I can't wait for to be back. Lovren/ Matip just don't work for me.


6.) 27 Jan 2019 13:48:15
Now virgil why would you want our first choice in mud!


7.) 27 Jan 2019 15:49:18
Ed25, Lovren is a good CB and if he has to play well, there is not much anyone can do about it. he is capable of playing a blinder (as he has done many times before) so that is not my issue, really. For me, it is not whether Camacho starts at RB or not cos someone has to p;ay there so you go with what you have. My main question is who will be charged with talking him thru the game and protecting him from the midfield position. IMO, I would play Fab to sit and have either Wiji or Hendo make sure Camacho is NEVER isolated one on one with Gray or Albrighton or Perreira (who can also play wide) .


 

 

13 Jan 2019 08:30:23
ed001 was Sturridge injured yesterday. or has origi moved ahead of him. Sturridge's performance against Wolves was the worst of a bad bunch by a long shot. But if that's true early on in the season the goal against Chelsea might be the point that wins us the league.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - virus I think.}


1.) 13 Jan 2019 09:52:31
Sturridge is finished at top level at my opinion. No work rate no desire. can't see him playing many games for us before he leaves in the summer.


2.) 13 Jan 2019 11:53:11
Sturridge can stay at liverpool and be another player, or go to a lesser club and be a legend xD.


 

 

08 Jan 2019 11:22:25
eds001 any chance come the summer we will get rid of Matip and Lovern. If so I think we should go all out to sign De Ligt this January should be a smooth introduction as he plays with VVD for Holland, and I think with Trent and Gomez they could rotate well even with some of the weaker teams VVD could get a rest. And the future pairing of Gomez and De Ligt would see us having cb sorted for up to 15 years all going well.

grino75

{Ed001's Note - I doubt there will be that kind of turnover of players. Evolution not revolution is the way to go to keep a team developing rather than having to restart each season.}


1.) 08 Jan 2019 12:42:51
I wouldn’t see both of them going, but could see one going to bring in another. Perhaps Lovren as he has a mistake in him even when playing with VVD and he’s not going to improve much as he sees himself as one of the top 5 defenders in the world anyway 🙄😂.

{Ed025's Note - i see him as a taller version of mr bean myself zed.. :)


2.) 08 Jan 2019 14:18:47
Evolution not revolution. Nice phrase ed01 coz "I evolve but I don't revolve! "

10 points if any knows where that comes from.

I agree though. I got slated on here yesterday coz I questioned klopp's selection of youth players AND fringe players like Migs and moreno. I thought the team was way too weak to play a near full strength wolves team in Wolverhampton. At night. And in my defence camancho AND moreno were way way too far up the pitch. So when milly loses the ball and fab misses the tackle there is literally no one left to challenge them. The wing backs should have been there. Moreno should have. That way jiminez doesn't have an absolute free run towards our goal, camancho should have been running back to mark the forward, allowing milner to go across and tackle jiminez (great player BTW) In the second half the full backs were much better. They stayed back when needed. I think full backs should get forward but not when we are under attack. You could see sturridge and origi in screen but no camancho, he was way too far up the pitch.

In the second half I had to eat my words, I was heavily impressed with the young CB. Absolutely no doubt that that kid had a massive future. I hope its with us. He does need to bulk up though.

Curtis Jones showed flashes of class at times but imo he was too easily bullied off the ball. However he was the midfielder who had the confidence to run at wolves. I wish Keita would run at them more, he completely done that wolves midfielder in the first half and I thought "here we go" but he didn't do that again.

I think it's pretty obvious that klopp doesn't take the FA Cup that seriously, maybe he has been told by the powers above that this is not a priority. and going out early could actually help us massively this season. But I suspect that he made promises to the young and fringe players that they would feature in the caraboo Cup. But, as we went out in the first game he has used the FA Cup to give them a run. I love klopp for that if that is the case.

But, it's a shame coz FA Cup final day is a massive occasion and we need to get back to winning and the trophy would look great next to our league title. City are still in every competition and are breathing down our necks. Youngsters should be introduced at home, not away but that's just my opinion.

Origi did score but that was all he did. Fair enough, if a striker scores he will think he had a good game but he was poor. Don't know why he is still in our team not good enough. Danny Sturridge IS good enough but wtf was he doing yesterday? I never saw him break a sweat, I barely saw him run. I used to be such a massive sturridge fan but its those performances that must make it so hard for klopp to even consider playing him.

Sell migs tomorrow. He is useless. He can't be that much better than our reserve keeper, anyone know how well he has played in reserve games?


3.) 08 Jan 2019 14:32:36
Love a bit of Alan Partridge, Robbie!

I’ll donate my 10 points to the team, so that means we’re now 14 ahead, right? 😂.


4.) 08 Jan 2019 15:35:06
not sure if its revolution but getting rid of Lovern and Matip and then bring in De Ligt and bring Nat Phillips into the squad as back up would seem more like Evolution. I would take De Ligt for Lovern and Matip any day quality over quantity any time. I think up until Gomez's injury the only reason the other 2 got any minutes was just to keep them happy, not that Klopp wanted to rest Gomez. As ed0025 say need to take them red tinted Glasses of Lovern was the week link at the back against city he is ok when we play the lower level clubs but he thinks he is top 5 defenders in the world and he is very long way from that.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely grino..


5.) 08 Jan 2019 16:05:55
I’m with you grino, but I wouldn’t do it all at once. I think Lovrens stock will still be pretty high, so I’d sell him now/ summer and bring in someone with a higher bar - De Ligt would be great if achievable. Then allow him to bed in for12m before seeing if Phillips is ready and if so then also ship out Matip.

Ensures we’re not in transition again, as Ed002 lives to point out 😂.


6.) 08 Jan 2019 16:21:20
Lol, the points go to zed, maybe we should do a charity thing and give the points to the toffees.

{Ed025's Note - you might just need all the points you get robbie.. :)


7.) 08 Jan 2019 16:31:59
Lovren has actually been pretty good this year and that includes the back end of last season and the world Cup.

We say he has a mistake in him and that's true but he got done by aguero, one of the best CF in the world. lovren had done the right thing, showing him away from goal without putting his foot in and giving away a penalty, its just that aguero hit the ball with alarming accuracy and power. Alison had no chance. Perhaps dejan could have got a block in.

I think gomez is going to be the regular rcb. My only worry is he is injury prone so I'd keep lovren as he is a good CB. Maybe sell matip for 100% profit. He must be worth £20 mil to someone at least.

I'd also be sorely tempted to go for an experienced CB on a 6 month loan, 3 month even. Just to give us a bit more security until Joe, Joel and dejan get fit. Fab is too good a CM to play at CB. it's a waste but I guess we do have a lot of CMs.


8.) 08 Jan 2019 16:33:29
This whole season we have been kidding ourselves about our supposed ‘squad depth’. The reality is we have a lot of players in our squad who, when picked ahead of our first eleven, give us the jitters.

The midfield area is good and there is healthy competition for places, and that is without Oxlade Chamberlain. Up front at the back is a different story.

Very simple test you can do to work out whether a player is a good squad player or not. let's start off with Salah. Salah gets injured, Shaqiri comes in to replace him. Its not ideal, but does it really worry you? I would say no.

Same goes for midfield. let's say Fabinho gets injured, Henderson comes in for a run of games. Not everyones favourite player, but it certainly doesn’t worry you all that much, you still feel the team will be able to function as normal or to a very high standard.

Now let's change that and say left back. Robertson is a very good left back, if he gets injured, who do we have? Moreno. It gives you the jitters doesn’t it? Because we know how much weaker we are going forwards and backwards as a result. How can that possibly make him a good squad player, if the very thought of him starting ahead of robertson for one game is enough to send shivers down the spine of any liverpool fan?

If alisson goes down to a freak injury or red card, mignolet his replacement. Another player who, like moreno, seems to have a stinker every time he gets minutes. I don’t ask for the fantastic distribution or world class saves of alisson, but for him to play one game without dropping a clanger would be nice. Again, a player who is entirely undependable when called upon.

You could go on with sturridge, lallana etc, the point being that a good squad player should be dependable and not be a total calamity when called upon to play. They don’t need to be world class, just steady at the very least, and not sabotage the work of the other players. They should be able to give the manager something to think about if they play well or have a good run of form. Just because some of our current squad players used to play for our first team and are on lots of money, does not make them good squad players, and does not make them reliable. Sooner or later it is going to catch up with us and stop us from winning the big trophies.


9.) 08 Jan 2019 17:15:53
I agree with you AW, but would add that I’d rather have someone more ‘average’ who is used to playing our way than someone better who isn’t. Sturridge is a case in point, occasionally shows flashes of the form of 2014 but even then he was playing as part of a front 2. Even if he was the same player now (which he isn’t) he doesn’t fit a fluid front 3. I’d rather give Kent or Woodburn a run than Studge.

We’re about the team, and importantly the shape of the team, than individuals. Our blueprint should be Barcelona (at least of old) where they played a certain way from first team to youth teams, so you’re still playing in the same position as you have learnt over years.

With Ed01 on this one. You don't start breking up teams for no reason. It takes time to build a squad and regardless of what we think of this squad of lads and all the things they have accomplished since Klopp arrived, the eveolution should continue and we NEED to keep getting better slowly but surely. As for Lovs, people say he has a mistake in him. Well, so does every player or defender on the planet. The prob. is that his mistakes are IMO, over-emphasized and overly criticized.

Lovs on his game is very good PROVIDED he is focused on doing his job and we have seen that more often than not in the past 18 months. Afterall, when we had that 18 game unbeaten run last season before VVD arrived, he and Klavan posted the best defence in the league dusing that span, helped by Gomez playing RB. If Klopp wants to let him go then so be it BUT I just feel like the constant bashing is becoming tedious just cos he made a mistake in a situation Aguero did the unthinkable. Also, I don't see anyone slating Allison for getting beat like that at his near post? Could that be due to what Aguero did which was phenomenal or the fact that we get to choose who we slate and who we let slide? Just a thought.

{Ed025's Note - im afraid lovren is a liability red wolf, of course you want him to be good and have covered most of his good points there, fact is hes hopeless and never likely to improve...you cant polish a turd mate..


11.) 08 Jan 2019 19:02:24
So Lovren is slated coz some of us have red tinted eyes Red Wolf
Ther fella is a nice guy off the pitch I hear but on it lacks total concentration for a whole game and is not good enough to dislodge the Gomez and VVD partnership no matter how wonderful you spin it mate
if the fella is happy to be third choice then all good back up to the first choice partnership then Im happy but if your saying he is good enough long term to be first choice partner to VVD then that is rubbish imo but we all see football different so respect your opinion.


12.) 08 Jan 2019 19:17:36
Why did you post that redwolf because you have made me agree with Ed025🙈 it's impossible for me to agree anymore with his comment at the bottom of your post, God i feel sick 🤒🙈😉.


13.) 08 Jan 2019 20:19:51
RedWolf, it would not be the ‘breaking up’ if the team though, we are talking about players that are so poor they only play a handful of times every season, and replacing them with players on roughly the same wages, but ones who can actually push the team forward and challenge for places. Having Sturridge, Origi, Lallana, Moreno, Mignolet and Clyne (when he returns) is utterly pointless, nobody can seriously tell me they’re pushing on our starting eleven to improve?


14.) 08 Jan 2019 21:26:28
on lovern let's look at spurs last season awful man utd away awful city this season awful, can't remember all the other faults with top 6. games everybody jumps on mings but sticking up for lovern makes no sense. Like I said ok against the lesser teams but to win the big prizes its the big teams you need to turn up for. and as for the world cup the first half against England he was all over the place and that game should have been rapped up in the first half. As for all the other games the worst world cup for quality I have seen since my first in 1982.


15.) 08 Jan 2019 21:58:44
Ed25, fair enuff. Don't get me wrong, Lovs does not help his case with some of the mistakes he makes and sometimes, he makes things way too complicated whereas doing the simplest things would be better. I just feel like Lovs is not as bad as people make him out to be. In terms of mistakes, I can pick out mistakes that EVERY one of our CB's make during games and use that to slate them BUT why would I do any of that when I know that making mistakes is part of the game? If a player does not want to make a mistake, come sit next to me on the telly and watch the games.

If Lovs leaves then he leaves and we will all move on BUT if people have to go all the way back to stuff that happened last season to slate him, I can also come back with lots of stuff that Lovs did right last season with VVD helping him most prominently, the CL final where he shut down CR7 or YES, shut down Harry Kane (Kane had a bad game BECAUSE of Lovs, mainly) . And to minimize his WC performance by saying the WC as a whole, lacked quality is the type of bias I am talking about. Again, just my opinion.

{Ed025's Note - i agree with some of that redwolf but i cant get past the fact he is not good enough to play in a top prem team mate, he makes too many mistakes and only that he has the amazing VVD next to him i believe he would have seen the door a lot earlier..


16.) 09 Jan 2019 05:02:46
In the spurs game last season. Kane actually fouled lovren by pushing in the back as the header came in, meaningv lovren misses the header. The ref didn't call a foul as its the beloved, future Sir Harry kane. They went on to score and lovren took a load of stick. Watch the match back again and you will see what happened

What does give Liverpool that touch of class is we all voted lovren player of the month. He had in fact had an awful month and salah was our best player but we showed our love and respect for big dejan who does do a lot for charity. To let home know we haven't forgotten the Europa league semi final. What z header!

was he lied to because he was going to play. but he was not good enough to get when he came then that's up to him to step up. don't see how that's screwing up his career have utd screw up freds career have Chelsea screwed up danny drinkwaters career players move to clubs and it does not work out they have to take it on there self's to push to get in the team when he did play he did not do enough to stay in the team. look at Henderson think it was Rodgers that tried to sell him but he refused to go and stayed and battle for his place. david beckham did the same at madrid got sent to train with the youth players under Fabio Capello but we carried on working hard and got back in the team.

{Ed002's Note - Klopp is a compulsive liar when it comes to recruitment. There is nothing new. It is nothing to do with Drinkwater. You need to step back from making embarrassing excuses for Liverpool and Klopp. It is what it is.}

I don't get all the calls to get trent into midfield as we see toady the full backs are so important for the way we play. Then we have to find a right back that can get up and down like trent does.

Lallana is not in the top 3 players, But when he his on form he fits the pressing game so well in the middle of the park a few season ago before the injury he was pivotal to how we played. ; All ways one of the players to start the press. I thought the days had gone and did not want him in the team Sunday but he was are star player and if he can keep playing like that till the end off the season he would add something that has been missing from are midfield 3 this season.

I think we have moved on as a club and are better off without him. Don't think he works hard enough off the ball and he is a high light player that looks better than he is because of the goals he scores but how many shots does he have but fore one goes in would much prefer are front 3 over him and in the middle ox all day for me. I know he has more ability on the ball than ox but look how hard david silva kevin de bruyne and bernardo silva. Think its time to move on.

ed002 have you much of Brewster if so how good is he where would you put him nest to the likes of Owen and Fowler at the same age. I do think the level of defenders now to when Owen and Fowler was coming through is nowhere near the same level what should help him though.

grino75

{Ed002's Note - I cannot compare players like that but the club thin he is great and Klopp has given him commitments about playing time.}

and one more if you don't mind ed001 Marko Grujic is he going to get a chance next season or do you think his time is over?

grino75

{Ed001's Note - tough one. He has impressed but not sure he has impressed enough. I would expect, unless he decides to leave, that he will be given a shot in preseason to impress and that will be when a decision is made.}

ed002 would Chelsea have travelled back after the game of first thing this morning. Massive game Chelsea not been great away from home but I think this weekend could be the turning point for one of us Palace away not easy after to trips to London all ready last week and this and Pep will have one eye on Wednesday after losing the first leg. thanks ed002.

{Ed002's Note - They would have returned to Stanstead after the game.}

VVD by a long way Gini is second Gomez was fighting with it with VVD till his injury shows what a massive miss he has been. Fab has been good but did not get in the team early enough to come close. And all the front 3 have been a bit up and down this season. Allison has been great to this season made us so much stronger back there but he does put your heart in your mouth a few times.

Bobby has to come straight back in if fit. His form has been up and down a bit this season but he has been playing in the number 10 spot sum times and needed time to adjust to the new role. But for me form is temporary class is permanent. And its Bobby that gives Mo the room to play.
