Hi Ed01 is there any news on potential movements/ reshuffling of coaching staff if Buvac probably isn't going to return. And how much of a blow do we think it is if he doesn't return? Who would you like to see in that role? Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - no mate, it does look like Pepjin is going to be asked to take the job, but no clue how it will affect things.}


1.) 28 May 2018 18:40:30
Really excited to have Pepjin back on board. He successfully over saw the transition of Trent and Woodburn from youth players into the first team squad and he deserves huge credit for it in my opinion. Especially with Arnold!

I always saw him as the long term successor to Klopp and was gutted when he left. Hopefully having a more important role as Klopp's number 2, will satisfy him for the 3 or 4 more years we will have Klopp in charge.


2.) 28 May 2018 19:04:32
I’m with you MK. I think he’s an exciting up and coming coach.


3.) 28 May 2018 19:47:29
Does this mean Buvac is leaving permanently then? Kinda hoped Klopp and him would patch things up, for the sake of their friendship if not for anything else.


 

 

25 Oct 2017 14:33:16
It's being reported that Klopp and Coutinho's relationship is basically decimated. How true is that Ed's? I know the lad wants gone but he seems to have knuckled down and put in some good performances for us. I personally think he'll go in Jan if not the summer.

{Ed001's Note - he is unhappy at being made to stay. That is all.}


1.) 25 Oct 2017 17:31:52
He will definitely go don't know bout anyone else but I can't stand the thought of having players who are plotting too move in our squad it's not healthy, we will b fine without coutihno and emre can we were doing well up too arsenal game without coutihno, it's mane who is very important an Salah, got a feeling mane will b off at end of season he seems that type of character if we ain't doing well.


2.) 25 Oct 2017 17:34:04
I’d love to know where these ‘reports’ come from!


3.) 25 Oct 2017 18:06:46
Doubt Mane will be going anywhere! The backlash would be terrible for FSG selling Coutinho, letting Emre leave on a free (by allowing his contract to run down this far) and then selling Mane on top? Never going to happen.


4.) 25 Oct 2017 18:12:36
Ed has there been any agreement or suggestions of when he will be allowed to leave, be it Jan or the summer? Or nothing at all along those lines.

{Ed001's Note - when a replacement arrives.}


5.) 25 Oct 2017 18:39:51
I am more worried about him wanting too leave, than us wanting too keep him seems every summer we go through something like the coutihno crap.


6.) 25 Oct 2017 18:48:44
He will probably want to leave at some stage, but with his best bud Naby Keita coming in i would hope he wants to stay next season before seeing if we progress or not.


7.) 25 Oct 2017 18:55:01
hailstones that’s what happens when you have good players, other clubs want them. Liverpool are not at the top of the food chain, this happens to every club to a certain extent, only the top 4-5 clubs in Europe don’t have to worry about their best players being taken.


8.) 25 Oct 2017 19:25:02
Thank you for your reply ed much appreciated mate. So if and when we can get a replacement in, he will be allowed to leave probably to Barca, unless they have moved on.

{Ed001's Note - I hope they have and he has no one interested, might teach him a lesson.}


9.) 25 Oct 2017 20:58:14
I no what your saying ed however we are better off selling him imo mate and replacing him. Rafinha don't look a bad player to me either if we can get him as part of the deal.


10.) 25 Oct 2017 20:52:44
Smeg head I suppose I need too accept that players come an go, jus I want them too b as passionate as us supporters cos they should b an want too win every match an that's there only focus, pure wishful thinking!


11.) 26 Oct 2017 07:06:49
Does he notget or want to get that the club needs to get a replacement first?

{Ed001's Note - he doesn't care he just wants to move on.}


 

 

02 Mar 2016 09:48:47
Reports in a daily rag that shall forever be used as toilet paper seem to put Liverpool, Chelsea, Man Utd, Man City and Arsenal chief execs in a "secret" meeting in London about a new break away league as the Eds have suggested in the past. From what has been said in the past it would seem Liverpool were never in the mix for the new Pan European League but if this meeting with American Ross - who put together the ICC is to be believed - then we seem to be a front runner. Or is this just someone who is trying to take advantage of UEFA's turmoil with their own idea of a Pan European League to make a lot of money?

{Ed002's Note - This is the original counter proposal backed by UEFA to try and save their own skin which is soon to be tabled that I mentioned before. This is an option to the breakaway as everyone now knows the reality of it. The proposal is to rename and change the format of the UEFA Champions League to make it an elite closed-shop pan-European league with a fixed number of teams – and these would be the same teams every year. It would then require the restructuring of the Europa League and the possible introduction of a lower-tier European competition. Although they have yet to flesh out the detail and there is now a major concern that the impetus for this is not coming from Europe, one major Football Association has given their support and discussions have also been held with the leading clubs from England (Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal). The American backer, Stephen Ross of the Miami Dolphins, has requested a meeting with an extant group of sides considering the pan-European breakaway to discuss his proposals. They have yet to respond but having identified the source of much of the funding (and that raising a concern) will wish to discuss it between themselves first. However, UEFA are now considering yet another proposal that would see some places in the CL fixed (probably to previous winners) and then see it supplemented by Champions and second place sides each season. This complicates matters again as it means the re-introduction of a third competition or the significant restructuring of the EL.


1.) 02 Mar 2016 10:33:31
Sounds very complicated. I guess it's wait and see now. Thanks for the input Ed.

{Ed002's Note - This has been dealt with in great detail here over the past three or four years - search on breakaway.}


2.) 02 Mar 2016 10:44:23
This is scary.


3.) 02 Mar 2016 10:48:00
If this said meeting was regarding a proposal backed by UEFA, then how is the original European super league idea any different to this counter proposal? From what I see, both proposals pitch an idea of an exclusive, pan-European league with a fixed number of teams.

{Ed002's Note - It is radically different in terms of the teams that might be involved, the running of it and the people looking to fund it. UEFA gave this support, as they are doing with another proposal, to save their own asses.}


4.) 02 Mar 2016 11:51:01
HI EDS if this does happen what will happen with the other comps like the F. A. Cup.

{Ed002's Note - It will continue without any clubs who leave the league.}


5.) 02 Mar 2016 12:35:42
To me the scariest thing would be places being fixed for some teams - the top comp should always be earned. As much as I love LFC, imagine if this had happened a few years ago and we had spent the last 5 years getting in over Arsenal who had never won it? Would be a killer for the sport as the competition would be so uneven, there wouldn't even be a point in fighting for the prizes and the whole concept of every team being in it to win it all dies.


6.) 02 Mar 2016 12:36:22
A European Super League also begs the question.
How much more money will the supporters of these teams be screwed for, to watch televised matches?


7.) 02 Mar 2016 14:32:38
I'd be very interested to see this develop further. From the bits of info I've read on here (and I'm not pretending to fully understand it all either) this would allow the most marketable teams in the world - of which we're still one - to better access that revenue. Without other details it's daft to suggest that it'll be a bad idea anyway. Plus anything that gets us back at the top table with Barcelona etc ought to be explored.

{Ed001's Note - god no. It is purely about greed and money. Places in Europe should be earnt by winning, not by virtue of having a big name. It is like the moronic thinking that sees the world stuck with monarchies that offer no use or value but get to be there purely because of who they are, not because they deserve anything. Everyone and everything should earn what they get.}


8.) 02 Mar 2016 16:17:51
Imagine the cost of following your team every other week across Europe, that's just not sustainable. Wouldn't it result in half empty stadiums?


9.) 02 Mar 2016 17:17:37
Would possibly be home fans only accept the few odd away fans who could possibly travel now and again but at least anfield with soon to be over 50 000 fans would be pretty awesome :p.


10.) 02 Mar 2016 18:50:10
I would imagine the away tickets would be supply on demand up to around 10% of the capacity of the stadium or something?


11.) 03 Mar 2016 02:42:02
As the premier league is the currently biggest earning league is there any chance that it's actually in the interest of English teams to remain the premier league? One could imagine that over time the higher earnings generated by premier league teams would increase the wealth gap between themselves and the rest of Europe. What I am asking I suppose that if the premier league is currently "winning" why change anything?
Also agree with the poster above who thinks that attendances would be s concern due to travel costs. I for one hope this never happens.

{Ed001's Note - it would be very much in the interest of the Prem teams in the short term. The issue is whether that is sustainable in the long term or whether a super league would eventually begin to gather up the less avid fans and the new arrivals in the long term.}


 

 

03 Jan 2015 09:13:27
Any legs in the Defoe to LFC on loan till the end of the season rumours? Personally I think he'd get us goals. I reckon the player would like the move too and is definitely better than, Borini, Mario and Lambert and would suit our game.

{Ed001's Note - he was offered and it was rejected, at least initially.}


1.) 04 Jan 2015 00:16:27
Luis Muriel! to replace Borini.

Personally I feel the Fekir deal will happen no inside info, just a gut feeling. I'm sure there's work going on behind the scenes to negotiate players coming and going but I'd like to ask if the Ed's think the World Cup being on is hampering transfer efforts happening or would it not matter if the player is out in Russia. Would the buying club simply just ask permission of the national side to perform a medical, signing etc or is it just not good form to distract a player on international duties? Thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - No, there is a lot going on regarding the transfer of players with numerous transfers already agreed. Medicals can wait and the transfer window is not even open in most of Europe.}


1.) 25 Jun 2018 17:45:43
I dunno. 60mil is a lot to pay for someone with a dodgy knee. Watching fekir he does like to turn on a sixpence and I reckon that puts a lot of pressure on the knee. Reading that jp report in the echo it sounds like we have moved on.

Who do people see as potential alternatives to fekir?


2.) 25 Jun 2018 18:45:20
Julian Brandt's main reason for being out of the running is that he wanted guaranteed playing time because it was a World cup year. I've only seen him when he's come on for Germany, but he doesn't seem to play that wide and had hit two absolute pile drivers into the post. The lad certainly knows how to strike the ball. I'm sure JK has the rest of his game scouted. If JK thinks he could employ him in a more central role, then I reckon he's still a good shout.


3.) 25 Jun 2018 18:48:36
Difficult to say. Forsberg, Brandt, Insigne? I know we should avoid, that’s Wilshere, Hiyech, Draxler.


4.) 25 Jun 2018 18:59:11
Joe Cole.


5.) 25 Jun 2018 19:57:41
Does mooy play cam? I know it might be an underwhelming choice but he's a good little player.


6.) 25 Jun 2018 20:25:44
Mooy? You’re joking aren’t you? You realise that Roy Hodgson left years ago don’t you?


7.) 25 Jun 2018 21:17:32
Brandt can play anywhere in the attack except the CF position. Only last season did he switch to the no. 10 position with the arrival of Leon Bailey who took the right side and Ben Arabi took the left. Brandt is a brilliant player who is the real deal (skill, dribbling, passing and shooting ability with both feet and can hit a set piece as well), IMO and had Klopp been willing to give him the game time he asked for, he'd prolly be here. Since then tho, Brandt has improved a lot and I would love him to come into the no. 10 role.


8.) 26 Jun 2018 08:53:37
Brandt would be my choice but he is not a coutinho replacement, he would play in the front three but the issue remains regarding game time. Who does he replace out of bobby, mane and salah?

Dont think he would want to come and be a super sub. I think lfc should try and resurrect the fekir deal but don't see it happening sadly.

Ed's, did Liverpool ever try and sign Christian Erikson at any stage in his career?

{Ed002's Note - Dortmund, AC Milan, Liverpool, Roma and Spurs were emain interested in Eriksen in 2013.}


1.) 14 Feb 2018 06:45:58
There was rumours he was holding out for a move to us but we never persued it. Not sure if that’s true or not.


2.) 14 Feb 2018 08:10:45
Ed002 said at the time that his agent was touting him to every top six club here and across Germany, Italy and Spain.


3.) 14 Feb 2018 08:12:41
I believe Danny Agger tried his best to convince him to join us.


4.) 14 Feb 2018 10:34:00
I think he would be class in our team. I think he is suited to our style of play.

Just off the bat, how much do you reckon we would have to pay to get him from spurs?

I'm thinking 60 mil, I know owner likes money. It will be hard for them to turn down 120mil+ for kane. I think it will be psg who sign him, not real. Yeah, how much to nab erikson?


5.) 14 Feb 2018 10:47:31
He would fit in, he could be the signing of the summer for us. Won't happen, he would work for us though.


6.) 14 Feb 2018 11:21:21
I would take Erikson over Kane every day of the week. Quality player, and pissibly the closest to Coutino’s skill set out there. Never going to happen though.


7.) 14 Feb 2018 11:51:31
I don't think he is anything like Coutinho. Coutinho was direct and wanted to work the space for a shot constantly. He was quicker, more skilful and far better at shooting and finishing. He also (pre-sulk) used to buzz around and put in a shift defensively. Eriksen has never lifted a finger to help out defensively which is why Spurs have to play two defensve midfielders.

Eriksen is more creative with his passin than Coutinho though. Some of his passes in behind or over the top are at a De Bruyne level. Coutinho was never that good at playing a pass in behind on a consistent basis. Eriksen is also miles better from set pieces. Corners, indirect free kicks, direct free kicks etc. You name it, he has it in his locker.

I can't see them as similar players at all though. It's a lazy comparison just because they both play creative roles on the left. Similar positions, but not similar players. Coutinho creates with direct running though which draws 3 or 4 players towards him and creates space for others. Eriksen can spot a runner out of the corner of his eye and bend a pass in behind straight to feet without them having to break stride. Totally different styles of creativity.

With Eriksen having a lack of pace and not a defensive bone in his body, i can't see how he suits either our front 3, or our fluid midfield with no dedicated DM. He looks good for Spurs because they have built a system that suits him. Even at his best though, Eriksen still isn't as good as Coutinho was whilst he was sulking!

He's a good player. Maybe a great player. I just don't see him fitting in Klopp's preferred 4-3-3. We need to sign the right players, not players just because they a good individuals. Eriksen will be valued higher than Lemar for a start. Lemar actually puts in a shift defensively to fit into our midfield, and has the pace to cover in our fluid front 3. He's a far better option based on what we need, and i really hope Eriksen is not targeted by us. Not unless Klopp is willing to change his tactics, or it will end in disaster. We'll be totally over run in midfield if he plays there, and Firmino will be limited in terms of passing options if Eriksen plays in Mane's position, as Eriksen has neither the pace nor the movement to make a run in behind a defender.

Players have to suit the system!


8.) 14 Feb 2018 11:57:11
Eriksen is a special player, genuinely talented and works hard, his final pass and shooting ability are amazing and he is able to find time and space on the ball.


9.) 14 Feb 2018 14:28:16
Spot on, MK. Dennis, all that may be true BUT Cou is the much better player as he has way more creativity than Eriksen and possesses all the qualities you say Eriksen has. I asked Ed01 in the summer if hypothetically, he could replace Cou. He said not a chance as he is inferior to him. Ed01 gave several convincing reasons. Maybe Ed01 can help us here.

{Ed001's Note - he is a decent player, very good player, but not on the same level as Coutinho. He goes missing far too often and can be absolutely anonymous against the best teams. When he is playing average, poorly managed teams like Ireland he shines, but he is not quite good enough for my liking. Personally I think Spurs need to upgrade on him if they are ever going to truly challenge for the title.}


10.) 14 Feb 2018 16:40:06
That danish hammering is still hurting ed, just letting you know. Though in truth it didn't hurt nearly as when O'Neil signed to stay on. As for eriksen, I think he's fantastic and would love him at pool over nearly any other player in the league. Followed him since he had an outstanding under 21's tournament a few years back.

{Ed001's Note - O'Neill is abysmal, no idea why they kept him. Eriksen is good against weaker teams who give him time and space, as soon as he is not allowed any he vanishes. He has not got pace to create space for himself and he doesn't have trickery to do it. He has got an excellent range of passing, but he can be shut out of games far too easily for my liking. If O'Neill wasn't tactically inept he would not have been able to do what he did. At Spurs he is lucky to have Kane's quality, Alli's movement and Dembele's brilliance to drag players away from him.}


11.) 14 Feb 2018 17:20:48
Because the fai is run by one man and he's more money than sense. It's no surprise he went with O'Neil again. As for pool, imagine eriksen doing his thing against the smaller teams for us ed. We struggle when we have the ball. Title right there.


12.) 14 Feb 2018 23:18:57
I agree with all of that to an extent, except him working hard, Mr Dennis. I've never even seen him make a tackle, let alone press, or track back. He reminds me of Fabregas in terms of style, but with the added bonus of being a set piece specialist, and creating from the left instead of a central position.

I've never seen him work hard, but i do agree he is very talented on the ball. His ability to find space and his vision means he can play the game at a walking pace. Does that sound like a "heavy metal" footballer to anyone though?

His creativity from deep relies on Harry Kane and Dele Alli making runs into the box in central areas. Firmino won't do that on a regular basis though as it is not his natural game, and we don't have any midfielders with the ability to break into the box like Alli does. Spurs Basically play a 4-2-3-1 with Kane as the focal point, and Son and Alli making runs beyond him. Eriksen rarely ever goes beyond Kane. He receives the ball to feet and dictates the attack with his superb vision from deeper positions. Coutinho was always looking to run at the opposition, and he would exploit the space created by the panic his runs made, with his weighted passes and delicate flicks.

Take out the focal point, and Eriksen's vision is wasted. Firmino is a false 9, not a target man like Kane. Take out the holding midfield pair, and Eriksen wouldn't find it as easy to stand in space all game as he'd have to get stuck in and contribute. He isn't physically up to that though.

I'm not disputing him being a good player, i just cannot see where he fits into our team. We are lightening quick on the break, and he looks good at Spurs because they slow the game right down so Eriksen has time, and the opposition centre backs are stood still like a rabbit in headlights. Then usually Alli or Kane make a clever run in behind which he finds with a great pass. We'd have to Sign a dedicated destroyer to play the Wanyama/ Dier role so Eriksen could get away with being a passenger out of posession, we'd shackle Henderson/ Keita into a genuine holding role, and put Salah through the middle as the focal point with a player like Wijnaldum behind him who won't get in Eriksen's way creatively and will purely focus on breaking into the box fir a pass. Firmino looks for the ball to feet more often than not, rather than making a run into the box. I don't see where Firmino and Eriksen fit into the same team. They play best in polar opposite styles of football. Would Salah cope with being a focal point marked by two big centre backs, instead of being able to peel off the shoulder of a smaller full back like he does currently? Would Mane cope with being a target further up the pitch, instead of receiving the ball deeper and driving at the opposition? Could Firmino ditch his natural game and play as an attacking midfielder looking to get in behind at every opportunity? Maybe they all could. Maybe it would work wonders.

Why try and change what isn't broken though? Eriksen is not a heavy metal footballer, he is an orchestra. Equally as entertaining but it goes against what we are building. So for me, his abilities are a redundant point. If somebody can actually present a case of how he fits in to a high intensity, interchanging front 6 who all have to contribute equally from a defensive perspective, I'm all ears. Currently all I'm seeing are people pointing out his strengths though instead of explaining where he fits in. For me, I'd rather build a team around the strengths of Salah and Firmino, than throw the blue print in the bin to get a walking pace playmaker into the team. Just my opinion though. The sum total is more important than individual parts. I'd rather have Lallana for another season than Eriksen because he fits the way Klopp wants to play, even though individually he is not as good as Eriksen.


13.) 14 Feb 2018 23:07:57
Pretty much nailed it with your assessment MK, except giving credit to the man who makes both Erriksen and Alli tick every week. Dembele is the catalyst and why Errisken and Alli has the luxury to not track back. I have always said we should buy a central playmaker rather than a wide Juan Mata! Someone like Kovacic / Nainngolan / Thiago in the middle.


14.) 15 Feb 2018 03:11:13
Spot on baby, dembele is spurs best player, makes them tick much like gerrard did for us.

I'm not sure what makes me smile the most. That's it's been so long since Everton won at Anfield, OR Emre Can getting a bollocking off the crowd for numerous errors and reacting ORVan Dyke screaming at Karius to come out all the time OR the big man scoring the winner.
Happy Friday Mardafarkers.

No doubt the boy has skills but it’s his attitude that worries me. Maybe JK will change him so if he signs he should be given the chance to prove us wrong. Decent money for a player of his calibre. His last chance though I reckon at a decent club.

I get that clubs try and hang on to their assets as long as possible but if players terms are agreed and medical is done and interviews are done etc etc why do they arse about afterwards? I’m assuming that it’s something in the way the money is being paid to Lyon and how it’s all structured etc that’s holding the deal up. Or are Lyon just bein tough negotiators as they want the most for their man?

Like one of the Eds said a while ago. Suarez could be 70% fit and give 100%. Studge has to be 100% to give 70%. It’s very much psychological with him. I genuinely believe he has injuries but most of the time he hasn't the mental fortitude to power through and play. He’s a great player let down by a weak mind.

Is right Ron, no need to go OTT. A world class keeper wins you the league, cups etc. With a worldie keeper, a Coutinho replacement then we will challenge. Definitely top 3 this season and maybe CL semis possibly the final.
