Any legs in the Handanovic to Liverpool rumours Eds?


{Ed002's Note - I don't know but if Mignolet were to leave in the summer and Handanovic were happy to be a back up to Karius perhaps. It would obviously mean the end for Ward if that happened.}



31 Aug 2015 16:47:21
Press reports linking us with Yarmolenko and/or Blaszczykowski again Eds - anything in these rumours?

Also talk of a RM bid for Moreno - any truth in that? I guess the player wouldn't turn that down!


{Ed001's Note - nothing as far as I am aware in any of those. Madrid are busy trying to sort out De Gea and running out of time fast.}

Telegraph reckon Suso to AC Milan not happening - perhaps there is a chance for him yet at Anfield.


1.) 08 Jan 2015 21:26:58
Its a done deal mate .

2.) 09 Jan 2015 14:27:23
I think the bridges between Liverpool and Suso are pretty much burned. One of the Eds said he was trying to leave last season too.

I don't blame the guy to be honest. Especially when the likes of Balotelli who has done absolutely nothing come in and get given a spot in the starting 11 or bench.

Reading today that Achterberg has been working with Alison on his goalkeeping ahead of the Palace game - rugby pad training apparently. Anyone else worried about the Achterberg impact on our expensive signing.


1.) 20 Aug 2018 05:24:03

2.) 20 Aug 2018 06:44:31
Shux, as long as he ain't beating him with concrete pads then I think Allison will be fine.

3.) 20 Aug 2018 07:01:56
Maybe he’ll learn something useful .

from Alisson.

4.) 20 Aug 2018 07:42:59
You have missed out the reason why. If you insist on posting a whiney bitchy post, at least put the whole reasons.
So ALLISON could get used to the physicality of the league!

5.) 20 Aug 2018 11:43:35
Ok. apparently you (our gk coach haters) know better than klopp, dalglish 🙄🙄🙄even ed told he is good i think. we didn't have good enough gks. being a gk i know how hard it is when your teams dominating. yiu don't even get to do anything and suddenly u r askd to save a shot. unless u r concentrating properly it will dfntly b a prob for u.



13 Aug 2018 11:24:45
Ed001 if you're around. I note that Garth Crooks is praising VVD highly in his weekend review on the BBC Sport page, even comparing him to the legendary Hansen. I recall you weren't entirely convinced before we signed him but have you changed your mind now? TBH I didn't see him play much at Saints so difficult for me to compare but I reckon he's inproved our defense significantly.


{Ed001's Note - not even close to Hansen. He has improved our defence, but he relies on his excellent physical attributes a bit too much. A little bit more alertness and he would not need to lean so heavily on them. Hansen, on the other hand, read the game superbly well so that he did not need to rely on being strong and fast. Van Dijk is good but not that level, not sure anyone is there days, players do not seem to read the game as well as they used to defensively.}

1.) 13 Aug 2018 11:51:45
Thanks Ed001, can't argue with that. Think the game has changed too much for a Hansen type to thrive these days!

2.) 13 Aug 2018 12:11:17
Totaly agree with that Ed, Hansen was so good at reading the game, thought the same about Maldini, and to a little lesser extent mcgrath, but not as composed on the ball as hansen, as Maldini said, "If i have to make a tackle, then I have already made a mistake. "

{Ed001's Note - exactly mate. But kids learn from watching games and hearing commentators praise the guy sliding in and making a tackle, because they don't understand the game. So they work on that side of the game and do not spend the time understanding the game. Physicality has become such a huge part of the game at the expense of intelligence.}

3.) 13 Aug 2018 12:39:30
Oh behave.

doesn't matter how strong you are, tall, big whatever if your not in the right positions to use it.

He just muscles people of the ball because he is there to do it.

He makes a crap tone of interceptions aswel by reading the play, he cuts most stuff out on the half way line by timing.

Let's see if mina does what vvd is doing by just using his body 😂


4.) 13 Aug 2018 12:44:51
I just wouldn't listen to Garth crooks. He has no idea.

5.) 13 Aug 2018 12:28:37
For me VVD has been brilliant since he came in but he can’t take all the credit. The rest of the back 4 and even Karius stepped up their game and I read earlier we haven’t conceded in the league at home in 6 months which is testament of that. Ed001 any chance of inventIng a time machine and bringing a in his prime Hansen and sticking him in this current team.

{Ed001's Note - I wish, him directing van Dijk would be perfect.}

6.) 13 Aug 2018 12:29:28
Great report ed but you forgot to praise Pellegrino for his set up who in their right mind plays a high line against the quickest attack in the league.

{Ed001's Note - they didn't play well.}

7.) 13 Aug 2018 13:00:29
That maldini quote is brilliant. Never heard that before.

8.) 13 Aug 2018 14:24:55
Ed, do you not think it's the quality of the attacking play that's hindering defenders reading the game?
There are some real monsters in footballs attacking players these days, more so than there used to be in my opinion.

{Ed001's Note - not at all. I don't think quality has gone up in anything other than pace and strength. Technique is worse but pitches are so good it doesnt matter.}

9.) 13 Aug 2018 16:50:26
VVD has done enough to get Gary Neville worried, so he’s doing something right.

10.) 13 Aug 2018 22:01:22
Maldini once said him having to make a tackle, was a sign that he failed to do his job. Pretty sure there are NO defenders who think this way cos they are too busy trying to make highlight reel tackles for the cameras and social media.

VVD needs to improve in terms of reading the game and being able to anticipate danger and snuff it out before it happens. He is a physical specimen with immense ability. He will have a prolonged career if he is able to read the game well hence, not having to expend himself physically. Hopefully, he can get there cos ability wise, he lacks next to nothing.

11.) 13 Aug 2018 22:23:53
Hansen was unbelievable. That Maldini quote is a personal favourite, I remember Xabi Alonso saying something to a similar effect a couple of years back. Though ski sunday I take issue with "and to a little lesser extent mcgrath", Mcgrath was every much as good at reading the game. The most naturally gifted defender of all time in my books, if not there abouts.



03 May 2018 07:29:52
I see Roma's owner has been whining about a couple of penalty decisions they didn't get - TBH I thought the ones they actually did get over the two games were poor decisions anyway, bet he wasn't moaning about those.


1.) 03 May 2018 08:06:51
Changes nothing he can moan all the like. they scored one from offside to oust Barcelona to begin with. plus it was never a penalty yesterday.
All these things balance out. and if i remember correctly it was Monchi who was against VAR when at sevilla, a few years ago.
Look at how bayern took it- they had a stone cold penalty denied. This is all part of the game and if you can't take it, better keep shut in your mums closet.

{Ed001's Note - Pallotta is just a whining little turd. A rich boy who thinks he deserves to have it all his own way because he has money. Since buying Roma all he has done is whine about everything, unless he gets what he wants he whines. He really is annoying and childish. A spoilt little brat.}

2.) 03 May 2018 09:24:34
The 2 pens Roma got were shocking in my opinion. Roma have nothing to moan about. They were lucky the got away with 5-2 in the first leg. Liverpool were far the best team. Sour grapes from their owner.

3.) 03 May 2018 12:46:30
And they can't even get it right on VAR from what I have seen. I know that Sepp Blatter had his faults but I agree with his sentiment that the game in the stadium should reflect the game played by amateurs in the parks. It is what makes the game what it is.



29 Apr 2018 08:03:59
Eds, just reading that one of our old boys - Luis Alberto - has been linked with a move to Barcelona to replace Iniesta. Did he get that good after leaving us? If so, how did we fail to notice this?


{Ed001's Note - he is the only player with double figures in assists and goals in Serie A this season. He was very highly rated when he joined us, it was just that we failed to get the best from him.}

1.) 29 Apr 2018 08:24:08
Holy C**p! Surprised to see Alberto doing this well.
If Barcelona sign the guy and he proves a worthy replacement for Iniesta, we will be kicking ourselves on this one, even more than Suso. Brendan really screwed up Aspas and Alberto for us.

2.) 29 Apr 2018 08:25:45
Great for him, Ed. He reminds me of Aspas. He did not fully get his chance with us even tho, I always liked him when at Celta. Now he has gone back to Celta, has been scoring goals for fun since he got back (Barca are his biggest victims) and is near nailed on for Russia in the summer. Goes to show that a good player will always shine if given a full go in the team.

3.) 29 Apr 2018 08:30:48
Hopefully our coaching staff have improved since then Ed’s, seems a shame that we missed out on seeing what the lad could do for us.

{Ed001's Note - they do seem a lot better, but there will always be players who just do not fit here and go on and have success elsewhere.}

4.) 29 Apr 2018 08:44:57
I thought Coutinho was Iniesta's replacement 🙈. This kind of shows how his first few months over there are going. I wonder if he regrets leaving yet.

5.) 29 Apr 2018 09:28:40
I thought the same Jayden. I'd love to know his thoughts on how we've done since he left lol hilarious. The grass isn't always greener on the other side, I think Coutinho is finding that out right about now.

6.) 29 Apr 2018 10:07:02
Coutinho seemed quite happy to post photos on his Instagram with the La Liga league trophy (which he contributed very little towards winning) . Plus if we should win the CL he would probably get a medal there too.

7.) 29 Apr 2018 10:39:26
I remember him being talked of as another Coutinho when we signed him.
He didn’t get/ earn his chance but the potential was obviously there. However, sometimes players just don’t suit our league and the “rough and tumble”.

8.) 29 Apr 2018 10:53:24
Don't think pipco will regret leaving Liverpool he always wanted Barcelona from a child he won't be missing our weather too.

9.) 29 Apr 2018 11:10:06
When we signed him from Barcelona b he was actually dubbed the new ineasta but because of his size Brendan Brendaned him into the alonso type player but since going to Lazio he’s back playing an attacking midfield role and guess what? He’s back to being the player we bought.

10.) 29 Apr 2018 11:44:42
I remember when we scored 5 at White Hart Lane. Alberto played a lovely first-time ball through for Suarez to lob the keeper.

I know that every player we sign can’t make it but some never get a chance and others get picked week after week when they continue to make errors and cause goals.

Alberto, Aspas and Suso are the ones mentioned. I think the same will happen with Harry Wilson too.

11.) 29 Apr 2018 12:09:40
Aspas was dreadful. I can't believe how short some people's memories are, he was absolutely shocking.

12.) 29 Apr 2018 13:08:06
Talking of Aspas, I read an article about him the other day and apparently he’s a right little s**t, has been since youth level. I also heard that during his time here the only word he learned was ‘yes’. So although Brendan is liable for the majority of his Brendan-ing, I don’t think the failure to the get the best out of Aspas is solely his fault.

13.) 29 Apr 2018 13:08:41
Not every player does well when they change clubs. Bergkamp was dreadful at Inter Milan. The environment, style of play etc matters.
I for one don't really get bothered when players leave the club and shine elsewhere. I want every player to reach their potential. With or without Liverpool.

14.) 29 Apr 2018 16:19:28
I think the only one I'm gutted about getting away is Suso, he had it, we knew he had it, he was capable of top level football with us, yet didn't get his chances and I find it a real shame but I'm happy for him that he's now found his feet.

Aspas just wasn't good enough for us, I was chuft to see the back of him to be honest.

Alberto, it just didn't work out, it happens. I'll be honest though I still don't rate him massively, I mean I know he's scoring goals AND assisting them so the stats look good and all but almost everytime I've seen him play he's looked lazy to me and looked like one of those players who tend to play good when they feel like it? maybe I'm wrong I'm just going on what I've seen which isn't tons to be fair to the lad but he's not wow'd me much, if at all.

For him to be even mentioned in the same sentence as Iniesta's replacement is incredible imo, nobody can replace Iniesta lol Just like nobody can replace Silva at City, he goes, they lose a hell of a lot of quality in one player, same goes for Liverpool with Firmino, these players are irreplaceable.



16 Jan 2018 19:28:30
Eds, I know we don't talk money but what's the logic behind clubs spending vast sums of cash in January on players who can be signed for free in the summer? I'm thinking Sanchez obviously given the numbers being spouted in the press.


{Ed002's Note - It gives MU an edge over MC.}

Salah and the rest of the team getting a lot of grief on here the last few days, some hard to please folk about, it was hardly a terrible performance away from home at one of the best teams in the league. Oh, and we didn't lose for those who seem to think we did.

Firmino starts for me. If anything, I'd just swap him for Sturridge with 20mins to go if he looks sluggish or if we're 2-0 up.

Good point Molby. I do feel like we've messed Ward around a little but he's ended up with a decent move and LFC seem to have pocketed a bit of cash. not a bad deal all round if you ask me.

At least we only need 2 or 3 more wins to finish out of the relegation places. Once we've done that then it's time to sit back and relax 👍.

How come some went to Vasco Ed002? Didn't we buy Coutinho from Inter?


{Ed002's Note - 2.5% of the fee goes to his training club under the "Solidarity Mechanism".}

Glad that Marius seems to be doing well! Don't see a way back at LFC for him now though - does that loan deal have a purchase clause at the end of it?

Gomez picking up a lot of praise this weekend, hope he can keep it up! And surely the long throw in thing is something our new throw in coach has identified Ed001?


{Ed001's Note - well the throw in coach has stated quite categorically that he is not at Liverpool to work on long throws, so it is probably just incidental that they discovered Gomez has a long throw when working with him. Either that or Gomez just never bothered using it before because the players were not getting themselves into a position to receive it. One of the things the coach is meant to work on is players' movement to get into position to receive a throw.}
