Eds I definitely think we need different options up front, maybe a target man for certain games, is the young lad taiwo awonyi anywhere near up to it as this year he has progressed more with the club he on loan at, from what I can see he looks tall strong quick an potentially a nuisance, what's your opinion on him.

hailstones

{Ed002's Note - Awoniyi will go on loan again - getting a Work Permit has proven not possible. I suspect the club will look to Anderlecht as the preferred option but other sides such as Brugge and Standard Liege might be interested in a loan.}


1.) 17 Jun 2018 16:25:59
That does make sense Ed. He did quite well in Belgium, would playing for a more higher profile team help get a permit Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Potentially, but one I suspect will be a struggle to keep in the longer term. He will go on the pre-season tour of the United States and then on loan.}


2.) 17 Jun 2018 16:35:20
Ed2 are the work permit committee pissed off with us? The only reason I ask is because of how we got Grujic his by lying and I can only imagine we aren't in their good books because of that?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool abused the system so they were certainly at the time. The whole Grujic situation has been a terrible mess but it will soon be over.}

How in demand is ..............

4.) 17 Jun 2018 17:22:42
Interesting Ed2, thank you!


5.) 17 Jun 2018 17:41:56
Cheers Ed.


6.) 17 Jun 2018 18:10:11
Why can’t Solanke be the target man?


7.) 17 Jun 2018 18:26:49
He is better behind a striker apparently slightly deeper that's where he plays for England youth teams.


8.) 17 Jun 2018 19:44:49
Ed002, will it be even more difficult after Brexit?

{Ed002's Note - Not for people like Awoniyi.}


9.) 17 Jun 2018 21:09:46
Sure, but I’m mean will the permit panel be a bit overwhelmed when the EU players have to apply?

Germany must be crazy not taking Leroy sane too the world cup far more effective than draxler, can't believe how quick Timo Werner is he would be so good for us but wishful thinking, they have moved him too the wing and every time he gets it he's roasting his man.

hailstones

1.) 23 Jun 2018 21:04:33
Werners woeful. Not a front man. Better winger.

There desperate for sane. Silly decision.


2.) 23 Jun 2018 21:23:06
From a standing position he is like lighting, he got the free kick kroos scored from by skinning his man, I am a big fan of his probably end up at Bayern.


 

 

23 Jun 2018 09:08:28
One thing coutihno offered which I would like our next number ten to bring is the ability too shoot from range, coutihno must be in top 3 long range shooters in the world, also his free kicks are of an excellent level, we haven't really got anyone in current squad who has the ability to shoot from range which is very useful for variety in our play.

hailstones

{Ed001's Note - we just signed Keita, we also have TAA who can do both. Perhaps you should familiarise yourself with the players we have before you suggest we don't have something.}


1.) 23 Jun 2018 09:16:46
The Ox likes a long ranger as well.


2.) 23 Jun 2018 09:26:06
TAA should take our set pieces imo.


3.) 23 Jun 2018 09:51:10
No they can shoot I agree, but I am talking world class ability too produce magic out of nothing, I am talking Gerrard, coutihno, Suarez type ability, Trent is a right back so won't get as many chances too shoot an yes keita will add more in that department, just coutihno whipped them in from everywhere.

{Ed001's Note - he also wasted a lot of good chances by shooting from everywhere and missing.}


4.) 23 Jun 2018 10:18:44
The way I look at it is, it's not really much of a big deal, we scored for fun last season, it doesn't matter how they are scored, if the ball is going in who cares from how far it is? I don't.

Keita is good for long shots though, especially just on the edge of the box and what I love about him is he isn't wasteful, he'll shoot when he thinks he has a good chance to score otherwise he'll pass to somebody else, unlike Coutinho who, like Ed says, wasted so many chances. Coutinho was very selfish at times, people have short memories.

I agree Brisbane, TAA on set pieces for me too, I'm also hoping we can see him in the midfield from time to time rotating with Fabinho.


5.) 23 Jun 2018 10:43:46
Ed I agree he did waste a lot yes, but he was lethal an getting better all the time as he started too show with Barcelona some really world class strikes not many players can match . I jus want us too have more variety too our play as last season I think at times as amazing as we were, there were times when we struggled an looked predictable if the front 3 didn't fire.

{Ed001's Note - yes, since leaving, irrelevant what he does since leaving, whining about that is pathetic.}


6.) 23 Jun 2018 11:52:33
Hailstones, I'm with you on this one, we lost a string to our bow when Couts left. Hopefully TAA or Keita can step up.


7.) 23 Jun 2018 13:37:18
Didn't Vvd take free kicks for Southampton?


8.) 23 Jun 2018 14:29:10
No ed I ain't whining at all just sometimes it can be the difference in winning a game that moment of genius or pure quality when a game is tight .

{Ed001's Note - yes I agree, but you said we had it with Couts, when we didn't, as you admitted he has shown it since leaving. We have done better in tight games since he left.}


9.) 23 Jun 2018 14:47:50
Agreed ed AMEN!

{Ed001's Note - sometimes it is better when you lose a player like that, Gerrard or Bryan Robson, who was another one. They are so good that the whole team becomes reliant on them and constantly gives them the ball and stands back. You need the whole team to take on the responsibility, rather than being dominated by one big star player. They cast a big shadow which makes it difficult for other players to emerge or take any kind of control of a game.}


10.) 23 Jun 2018 15:25:10
Very true.


11.) 23 Jun 2018 15:58:15
Well said Ed1, very well said mate completely agree,


12.) 23 Jun 2018 17:02:04
Very true ed I get were u coming from completely, hopefully this season or next we will have a squad of players that are a world class team and don't have too rely on individuals like in the past as we all know it's been the case over the last 20 years barring a couple of seasons in late 2000s when we had Alonso, mascerano, Gerrard, hyppia, Torres etc . This current 1st 11 is quality hope we can add too it and progress consistently as we have been doing .

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed mate.}


 

 

22 Jun 2018 20:57:00
Shaqiri was good tonight goal, nearly a wonder goal, effective passing, and showing strength an pace in the 90th minute too score, I thought it before the Brazil game an now still after Serbia, he is an excellent back up and would b good in rotation.

hailstones

1.) 22 Jun 2018 21:52:31
For the reported 12 million I think he would be a good squad player and better than what we have on the bench currently I've seen loads of people say he is lazy and doesn't run so they must have been to a lot more Stoke and Switzerland games than me to back that up. I'd be interested to see if anyone actually had access to his average running stats whilst playing premier league football.


2.) 22 Jun 2018 23:13:35
There is simply no other option than to sign him for me if it is truly for 12/ 14 million. Even to buy him and flip him in January we could make 25 million.

{Ed0333's Note - Why would we buy now and sell in January? You realize we’re a football club not one of these real estate shows on American TV.


3.) 22 Jun 2018 23:59:25
Kloppsboss these are human beings with lives and families to settle in new homes you can’t just ‘flip’ them after 6 months to make a profit. With that attitude what players would want to sign for us in the future?


4.) 23 Jun 2018 02:29:59
While im divided on shaqiri myself the question does remain, is there a better player in world football you could get for 12 to 14 million?

We need squad depth. that's obvious and although he doesn't tick all the boxes he does score goals.

Its a head scratcher.

In an ideal world he would sign for 12 million take 70 grand a week and be happy to be a squad player. If that was the case what's the problem?

He would suit our squad way better than lallana. So ship lallana out and sign shaqiri And actually save a few pennies.

Im divided but in that case its a no brainer when you think about it.

{Ed001's Note - sorry but there are lots of better players you can get, if you search around. We don't need squad depth that isn't good enough, but is cheap. That is the kind of idiocy that Rafa employed that destroyed the team he was building. You only buy those that are good enough.}


5.) 23 Jun 2018 11:29:51
But Salah and mane weren't ripping much up ed before us.

Chamberlain certainly wasn't.

Wijnaldum had just been relegated as had Robertson. Loren was on the outside. Taa was in the academy.

Shaqiri has all the tools you literally just need to see if klopp can get into his head like he did with the others and switch it all on.

As for being a reality tv show that is a pro the fact that it's a transfer that would make us money if it failed. What's wrong with that. Basically it's risk free.

He flops and worse case is we sell him to West ham for 25 million next summer.

The problem we have is is there anyone better than Salah?

But we still need cover there. Shaqiri is perfect.

{Ed001's Note - oh here we go ridiculous comparisons to try and suggest the stupidity of signing the crap is a good thing. Done talking about this, it just brings out lunatic comparisons that have nothing to do with it.}


6.) 23 Jun 2018 13:35:39
I don't disagree with what your saying ed001 i wouldn't be moaning if we didn't sign him but at 12 to 14 million i wouldn't be getting angry if we did.

Its a meh one for me.

Although there may be younger players out there that you could pick up for around the same price it would probaby take them a few years before they are ready and develop fully.

I don't think there are many senior players out there for the same price cause the market has gone crazy.

Its probably a debate other fans are having about sturridge albeit for different reasons ofcourse.

Like i said before im divided on.

Not fond of the attitude at all but im pretty sure klopp wouldn't sign him if he didn't think he could sort that out.

Maybe he has no intentions of signing him at all. Who knows.

{Ed001's Note - I don't care about the price, even if he is paying 12m to come he is not worth having. He spends 85 minutes strolling around the pitch, hands on hips, with the odd arm throw into the air when the ball isn't handed to him on a plate even though he is making no attempt whatsoever to show for it or to help win it back. He is all that is wrong with football. Crap player for stupid money.}


7.) 23 Jun 2018 14:03:36
People saying shaquiri is cheap and you won't find a player of his calibre for 12mil. there is a reason he is 12mil, cheap, coz he ain't all that. If I watched Liverpool I would cringe twice a year when shaquiri scores, crosses his arm and makes a proud face like a 10 year old. He's a knob, we all know it. Matip was free and Is probably a better player than shaquiri so of course you can find good players cheap, look at robbo, by the end of the season he was pretty good. Shaquiri is a lazy rumour, has legs coz he is controversial. I'll be really surprised if klopp signs him but like ed01 says, if he does I'll support him (and cringe twice a year)

100 shots, 26 on target, 3 goals. Ed01, why would anyone sign a player with those stats for Liverpool. This is liverpool right?

{Ed001's Note - because they are clueless. That can be the only possible reason. They usually justify it by saying he is cheap. I am sure Dirk Kuyt would be cheap as well, may as well just bring him back if that's the thinking.}


8.) 23 Jun 2018 14:17:48
I can see what side of the fence your on ed lol

Theres no argument from me to anything your saying.

Theres a lot about his attitude that would need to change. that's clear for all to see.

{Ed001's Note - it is not just his attitude though and his workrate, there are the regular thigh and calf injuries because he has the wrong type of fitness. He carries too much bulk and does not do enough stamina work. There is his ridiculous tendency to just get the ball and shoot, his shooting is abysmal. He misses so many that the ones that go in are as much down to fluke as skill. He has all the football intelligence of a boiled cabbage, after it has been chopped up, eaten and come out the other end.}


9.) 23 Jun 2018 15:04:52
Yeah exactly ed01, shaquri's name shouldn't be mentioned in a sentence with dirk kuyt! Unless it's "shaquri cleaned kuyt's boots"

{Ed001's Note - with his tongue...}


10.) 23 Jun 2018 21:09:38
He's only that cheap because of a clause.

How on earth is comparing him to oclade not applicable? He was woeful for arsenal. The last words Henry said is I still don't know what he's good at. 1 season under klopp and he's winning the best goal of the season in the champions league for liverpool.

Were getting a reputation for signing under hyped players. Shaqiri is not wanted like Robertson wasn't, oclade wasnt, mane wasn't, Salah wasn't in fact it was how does he get into the team.

Shaqiri does have a lot of issues I just think for 12 mil it's a gamble worth taking to see whether he would thrive with us and klopp!

Iceland are like Burnley an west Bromwich Albion mashed together, I would hate for us too play them every week typical type team we struggle against, hope we get some different options for teams like that next season.

1.) 16 Jun 2018 19:52:41
Keita!


 

 

10 Jun 2018 00:10:53
Looks like city stalling on jorgihno, could we not go after him slightly different to fekir but brilliant Alonso like quality on ball, obviously city in pole position but what sort of chance would we have going after him.

hailstones

1.) 10 Jun 2018 06:13:49
Don't need him. We just signed Fabinho.

Is he even reliable too be fit, as the mystery disease he suffered seemed too knock him back a peg or 2, when he came back too play was he up too speed, only thing he could be is a squad player for low price tag.

What about gelson Martins from sporting Lisbon as an alternative too fekir he is so good front 3 mane Salah martins with firmino just behind or alternate would be scary and rapid fire, also the idea of draxler as an alternative would be nice if he has the hunger an desire too get better with us. On fekir there president has not said there player has expressed too stay another season just that he was staying, I think if fekir pushes it things might change as he had shirt on was going to do interviews an the medical he was invested in signing for us, his head was with us so interesting too see how it plays out.
