Hi Ed002, thanks for all your input.

From what you say it almost seems like tapping is a systematic strategy employed by the club to drive prices down. If so then this is even worse than the manager bumbling along tapping one player after next of his own accord.

I understand we don't want to be too specific about LFC for libel reasons but are footy clubs historically known to use tapping systematically and if yes what's the biggest punishment they have received (if any)?

Or have I misunderstood totally and the decision to tap is made spontaneously for some other reason?

Thanks again!


{Ed002's Note - I don't think it is a club strategy. It was only one person who briefed a few choice members of the press.}

Eds 002 do you think klopp is in danger of losing his job over his tapping up antics?

{Ed002's Note - No but he is embarrassing the club and making things difficult for the owners.}

Who was that person?

{Ed002's Note - Klopp.}

Thanks Ed. Chelsea did seem to have more talented youngsters though. Clearly KDB, Lukaku etc were always going to be better than Ibe and Markovic. But LFC should get their loans system in order if top young talent like Woodburn are to progress.


{Ed002's Note - Markovic moved too soon - I made that clear at the time.}

Thanks Ed002 for the really insightful response.

While unconnected to LFC, if I may ask, why do Chelsea remain largely unable to produce first team players with a system as comprehensive as that? Is there a disconnect in the philosophy between development groups and first team, or is it just because of Abramovic's firing finger? And are there any other clubs who regularly churn out first teamers from a loan system?


{Ed002's Note - Courtois went through that process and is a regular. Christensen returned in the summer and is a regular. Moses had a few loans and is a regular, Ake went through it and is a regular for Bournemouth, Lukaku and De Bruyne went through the Chelsea set up and are doing ok now, plus Chelsea. Has a couple of squad players who have been through it. So it is perhaps not doubt too badly.}

Could it be that he sees his best position to be higher up the pitch where he did so well for Southampton but never excelled at Liverpool?

Just because he plays his heart out every time for Klopp doesn't mean he loves playing in that role. Also perhaps he's conscious that in mid thirties he won't be useful in his current role because it requires tonnes of stamina.

Isn't Keita going to be cup tied? Won't we be short in midfield if Can goes in Jan?

It will be nice to have a bench of Meyer, Brandt, Draxler, Mahrez, Sanchez, Goretzka and Oblak.

Saying the death threat has anything to do with Lovren's performance is totally out of order! Except of course if we say the support he got from the fans in response is what has spurred him on.

Thanks Ed001. Hopefully we get someone to put in the crosses because Robertson's crosses are a constant threat to the fans in the Kop.


{Ed001's Note - I am sure he will improve at that, once he relaxes and plays with a bit more freedom. He is still trying too hard to impress at the moment when he gets into the final third.}

Ed001, an idea for feedback from your footballing wisdom. You often say that we need a full back who can defend first, and while it's early we can see Robbo can do that at LB. Is it not time for us to sign a top class left-footed player who starts in the midfield but can stretch the defensive teams on the left flank in a fluid system and put in crosses while allowing Robertson to hang back? (I think I'm prescribing Lemar lol) . Our RBs are good at going up and down the flank and putting in crosses anyway.

Thanks for this immaculate site btw!


{Ed001's Note - I take it you mean to sit in central midfield but with the ability to pull out wide when Mane cuts in? In which case, it would help to have a left pegger in there to do that at times. I do agree Lemar could well be the ideal player to do that. We have it on the right with the Ox etc, so it makes sense to provide balance alongside them.}

If the competition gets moved due to the so called allegations of financing terrorism then it will be great shame because by the same token Russia, UK, US and many other countries should also get ruled out.

If it gets moved I hope it's for the right reasons. Not for some propaganda.


{Ed025's Note - it should never have gone there in the first place for me hanif, to say it was a fiddle is the understatement of the year, countries like qatar with very poor human rights policies should not even be in the frame, and the funding of terrorism is hardly propaganda mate, just my view of course..

Are you trying to say that he took off Salah and Firmino with Tuesday in mind?

Hope they both enjoyed the training today lol.
