Hey eds, what do you make of Ballotellis agent saying he will be staying at the club next season? Do you think the club won't be able to drop their price enough to sell him on?

kevlaw

{Ed002's Note - It is posturing to get to a price where a deal can be done elsewhere. As I have explained, Liverpool want way too much. Mino will posture until he gets his way.}

Balotelli, from what I observed last season, is worth f@:kall!!
to get him off the wage-bill would be an achievement.
Personally, I'd make him stay and put him in goal 'cos Mignolet's sh"t!!
On the positive side, Liverpool cast-off Iago Aspas has a Europa League winners medal in his back-pocket!

Hey eds, just was wondering what is your take on Lovren's situation, he is left out of the squad again tonight. do you think he has been cast aside and could be moved on? Or do you feel is more down to the change of formation and he just isn't doing enough to get into the team? Or do you see him playing more next season when Can potentially moves more into a central midfield position when Gerrard leaves us? Would be curious to hear your opinion on his Liverpool future.

kevlaw

{Ed001's Note - he is not happy and right now it is likely he will be off in the summer. Things change though, and he has a few months to get back into the reckoning.}


1.) 04 Feb 2015 21:56:47
He's another player we shouldn't have bought. . a one-season wonder at Southampton. The best season of an otherwise average career and we paid through the nose for him.
He'll end up going for peanuts and we'll continue to rue our treatment of better centre-halves like Kelly, Wisdom, Llori, Agger and Toure.
Southampton must get their best china out when they see us walking towards their offices. It's like our foreign aid policy.


2.) 04 Feb 2015 23:27:24
Cheers eds, i had a feeling that this was likely where he was at. I'd love though for him to break back into the squad, same way Sakho has done, but sadly i don't think that will happen.


3.) 04 Feb 2015 23:35:34
Would anyone want him ed? if so we would struggle to get half our money back.It's a very odd situation because he looked boss for Southampton but just looks lost in an Lpool shirt A return to Southampton seems unlikely due to the fuss he kicked up when they rejected bids from us. I just hope if Lovren were to go we would give Ilori and Wisdom a chance at the club rather than spending a lot more money on another centre back


4.) 05 Feb 2015 09:55:06
Is the story true about Gerrard going to throttle him after one of the games? Personally I think he will be fine once he is fully settled and the pressure is off him a little next season. A bit like Hendo.


5.) 05 Feb 2015 12:45:49
Surely we scouted him properly prior to his move and thought he had the required qualities, even if I didn't rate him I would err on trusting the club as I'm one of those who wrote off Henderson and have had to eat my words.

If it did happen there must be massive questions asked of the transfer committee. Its the scouting network that really needs an overhaul at Liverpool in my opinion. We seem to spend an awful lot of money for an small amount of improvement.

Though on the flip side I am actually quite happy with most of the business done over the summer, overpriced but some really good potential.

Loafmaster Flex

{Ed002's Note - The scouting set up has been overhauled.}


6.) 05 Feb 2015 13:38:51
You'd have to question why he isn't getting another chance in the team with the new set up. Yes he was awful at the start of the season, but absolutely everyone was. I'd like to see him with Sakho on the ground with him, Lucas in front of him and a partially revitalized Mingolet giving him a little bit more direction


7.) 05 Feb 2015 23:13:59
I don't think he was tried as part of a three man defense.
Maybe that would help him.


8.) 06 Feb 2015 03:49:54
its kinda unfair to alienate him. when we needed a CB i would put him there ahead of Johnson to be honest.


9.) 06 Feb 2015 05:07:22
Can you elaborate on the overhaul Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - It is as simple as staff being changed - Mel Johnson, Alan Harper and Mike McGlynn have left and others have arrived.}


10.) 08 Feb 2015 20:06:22
How come a perfectly good player turned into a shadow of his former self after being coached by Brendan & co. What the hell did they do to him?


11.) 10 Feb 2015 11:02:21
I think Lovren will come good when Brendan eventually deems him ready to step back into the first team. Look at the transformation Sakho has made.

Hey eds, have been trying to find out who the winners of our tie with city will play, i assumed it was the winners of Barcas game, am i wrong?

As for the tie, i am fairly happy ( though my brother is convinced it was a fix from Uefa to try and knock at least 1 english team out, nothing would surprise me) . Its goimg to be a cracking double leg. can't actually call it.

{Ed002's Note - The semi-final draw will happen after the games have been played - April 13 from memory. Oh and Kev, tell your brother he is an idiot.}

Cheers ed2, i always thought they made the semi final draw the same time as the quarter finals.

Haha thanks ed2 i will tell him don't worry.

Happy St Patrick's Day from Galway! :D.

I read something that all top 4 in the PL will go straight into the Champions league next season without the need for qualifiers, is that correct?

Going through the game on saturday, I don't think we can have too much complaints, apart from the clear penalties we should have had. But performance wise, I hate the comments giving out about TAA and Lovren, as regards TAA, he has been immense all season, and for such a young player has been incredible. He got caught out in a big game, it happens, he will learn from that hopefully and improve his game. As regards Lovren, he got bet in the air by a great forward that led to the goals, it happens really, he was very good for the rest of the game.

While Milner was fantastic I have to say, I do think we badly missed Hendo on saturday. His range of passing and linking defence to attack is sublime, you only need to look at the Newcastle game last weekend to show his worth, maybe had we had him he could have found that pass or forced the players out more wide. But it was inevitable that Utd would sit back and park the bus, but we could have exploited that had we gone more wide and stretched Utd's defence. I think we can go away proud though from Old Trafford, this defeat for me hurts less compared to other times we have have lossed, and to score there, albeit an own goal, that was only Utd's 7th goal conceded this season at home. Pick ourselves up and go again, i do feel we still can and will get 2nd place, though champions league is the goal.
YNWA.

Kevlaw, all 4 go straight to the CL proper next season.

question for the eds, with City after winning the League Cup, Jamie Redknapp said that this team as the potential to dominate the league and europe and that other PL teams should be very afraid, so my question is, how far do ye feel Liverpool are away from this City team, it was mentioned on Sly sports that Liverpool could be potential Champions. So goalkeeping issues aside, or assuming we get a top class keeper, how close or far away is this team?
Thanks Eds.

kevlaw

{Ed025's Note - not very far away i would say kev, once naby comes and a top class keeper then i believe liverpool will be serious competition for city, injuries could be a factor of course as i dont think the reds squad has a great deal of depth, but as a team they are not far off mate..


1.) 25 Feb 2018 20:29:51
Ed25.I really do admire your assessment of our team, especially as you’re an Everton fan, fair play to you mate.

{Ed025's Note - im a football fan drogie and just say it as i see it mate..


2.) 25 Feb 2018 20:33:57
Starting 11 not far at all

Squad miles away.


3.) 25 Feb 2018 21:02:52
Thanks for the reply Ed25, I tend to agree with your assessment. I do think Naby will be a massive player for us, hopefully we can get that top class keeper in. I think possibly another CB but I feel VVD will improve every cb we have at the club. Our defence already looks to be improving with every game. But i do agree, our squad depth still needs improving, but as far as recruitment has gone under Klopp, we have drastically improved I feel compared to recent years. Hopefully we continue on that trend.

YNWA.

{Ed025's Note - i think you will kev...and its breaking my heart mate.. :)


4.) 25 Feb 2018 21:24:14
We are not far away at all from City, as Ed25 has said. We need to get in more players in the mold of our quality front three in other areas of the pitch to help us get to that next level. Also, consistency needs to be improved and we need to SERIOUSLY cut down on points dropped from winning positions as that is what is killing us (linked with consistency issues) .

As per squad depth, I recently saw Pep making a fool of himself, saying his team lacks depth as he only has 16 players to choose from right after they drew with Burnley. Yeah, go figure. The manager of the richest club, is complaining of lack of depth. As for our depth, we need to upgrade that as well and the GK, we'll have to see what happens cos if Allison is a non starter and Navas (I pray, does not come) then Karius is who Klopp will turn to as he signed him and IMO, STILL wants him to be no. 1 BUT Karius will have to keep getting it done till season's end and he's on pace to achieve that.


5.) 25 Feb 2018 22:42:28
Pep is overrated and Arsenal are a shadow of themselves. This is city's year in the premier league but I really don't see them getting to the cl final which with the money on show, should be almost expected. I think as soon as a few teams desperate for points go out and play them towards the end of the season we'll see the cracks showing. I think if we'd played karius sooner the gap would be a lot closer. Ifs and buts I suppose.


6.) 25 Feb 2018 23:50:08
I think we would be in for a shout in the next few season, just I fear city are just getting better and better. Jesus, sterling, silva (the other one) sane, stones, ederson, mendy and others, are all young and improving, de bruyne has years left and if he keeps getting better, and the defence are pretty set now for a few years too. They will recruit too and of late it's been excellent.


7.) 26 Feb 2018 06:07:46
You have a point Firmane but don't forget a team can only play 11 players at any one time. I think what is also apparent, and also important, is that how the team functions as a collective is the key. i think we are building an excellent, cohesive team that works for one another and functions well as a whole. The sum of cities parts are probably better, I mean they are oozing world class players, but as a team I think we are actually pretty close. Our issues this season, though not as prominent, have been related to consistency and motivation against smaller sides - City have been ruthless in that respect whilst we have much room for improvement. If we can improve on that, add a couple of top quality signings in summer, then anything could happen next season. As it stands Champions League qualification is vital - if we miss out we face the prospect of missing out on top targets, that has to be the focus this season.


8.) 26 Feb 2018 17:12:48
it will be really interesting to see whether Pep is the silver bullet that brings consistency to City. They usually go up and down year to year like Chelsea do. It's like their players put all the effort in for a season then get bored of the manager and take a season off! I think he will, but equally interested to see how well Pep can maintain the run with these lads.

With Couts the little magician about to leave the club, I do wish him all the best, he has been a good servant to Liverpool Football club and has scored some amazing goals. I don't think he is worth as much as we are getting as a player, but for sure he is worth that much to Liverpool. I wished he would stay until the summer and try win some silverware before he departs, but all the best to him. He was denied in the summer but still served the club so well, never bitched or moaned once. So in my eyes he has left the club well. it is not bad bit of business from the club really, to buy a player for 8.5 million and sell for 145million isn't too bad. I don't feel the sense of loss i felt when we lost Suarez though, we are finally in a position where we can lose our star man and still be in a strong place, just I hope we can invest well with the money. YNWA Coutinho.

So, if we believe reports, and Macca, who is always reliable source, (I don't think i've ever seen him be wrong) then we are on the verge of signing VVD and Salah, for me it would be a real signal of intent, especially getting VVD, who is choosing us over City and the current champions in Chelsea, it would be a real real coup for us. I really admire him as a player, he is a good all round CB, and someone we badly need. Is he overpriced? ofcourse, he will be the most expensive defender in history. But for me isn't too much for the money, this guy will instantly improve our defence, plus we need to give our annual fund to the Saints charity fund. He is desperate to be apart of this club and play for Klopp which is most important.

As for Salah, I was desperate to sign him when BR wanted him, it didn't work out for him with Chelsea, but he seems to have a point to prove, and the guy is still only 24, I thought he was at least 28, he seems to be around for years. He will improve our attack and give more options. Exciting times ahead for the club, with the investment made here this summer, could determine us for the next couple of seasons, we need to get it right this summer.

kevlaw

1.) 05 Jun 2017 20:40:52
The more alarming thing is that Coutinho is the same age as Salah, only a few days between them! Keeping a hold of Coutinho will add to the potential success of this transfer window.


2.) 05 Jun 2017 20:53:21
You haven't came here often if you've never seen him be wrong. He said we were about to be taken over 12 months ago, along with signing Walcott and Gotze. He has been wrong and he has been right. I'm a skeptic always have been always will be. A lot of his info seems to come just after there's a load of media reporting the same thing. Where was he a month ago mentioning our original targets?


3.) 05 Jun 2017 21:25:02
Perhaps make him do a lie detector test Jezza? I reckon he'd get a Full house?

Seriously though Jezza, we are lucky to have Macca. Ed001 knows who he is and he wouldn't entertain the guy if he was a fraud. Ed001 is cold as ice. I once watched him volley a Mallard by the river because it 'looked at him funny'.


4.) 05 Jun 2017 22:05:46
Nah I'm not saying he's lying he's just been blatantly wrong before even tho he's been adamant he's right. I'm glad he posts. I'm glad the eds post even more so. Everyone speaks of his track record I've been on here since the days when he had his own page and I've not got a tally going but I'd say it's 60/ 40 to him for right and wrong by people like to gloss over his wrongs just because they wanna crawl up abit? I like his posts I put more credibility to his posts than all of the regulars apart from the eds but still he has been wrong plenty of times as well as right plenty of times.

Great servant for the club, for me before his bad injury a few seasons ago against chelsea he was one of our best players in my opinion and felt he would succeed gerrard as captain some day, alas it didn't happen. But a great player for us over 10 years, he had a tough start to life at anfield but changed his game and became a real talented player. If im not mistaken he is the last surviving player from rafa's reign. Hope he does what is best for him. Would love to see him stay until the end of the season but if he does go ill be happy for him. YNWA Lucas Leiva.

Agree with Hart, he is a rubbish keeper, even flicked on the Man city game tonight briefly and there he was flapping at crosses. Credit to Migs, at least he is a decent shotstopper, but if Hart was with our defence, he would probably be worse then Migs in my opinion, definitely just as bad, he will struggle when he moves on to a team who do not have as good of a defence as City does.

As for Sakho, has it really gotten that bad with him? I have not really been following his story since he was sent home from America. Is Klopp looking to get rid because of his attitude? I thought he was still injured, that's why he was still not in the team.

I also want to congratulate Man City, they have been breathtaking this season, like liverpool but with more consistency. For the laugh i was checking if it was possible for us to win the title the other day but even if we won everything and city lost we would have been still 2 points behind them (thats before this weekend) but the horrifying thought of utd slipping in to win the title nearly made me want to vomit, the way they play it must make proper utd fans gag because that isn't how utd played under whiskey nose. It would be deserving for us to finish 2nd, it would show that the 2 best playing sides are finishing in the top 2, spurs are just about in the same category. It would be a travesty if any team ( apart liverpool) was to win this seasons PL. I do hope we rest our key players for the next 2 PL games, especially the front 3, we have the chance to rest and be fresh. I think Klopp must be praised because the rotation earlier in the season has kept us fresh. I can't remember a season in a long time where we haven't had massive long term injuries to key players. John Aldridge said in his column earlier that klopp needs to sacrifice salah maybe getting the golden shoe so that we have the best chance to beat roma.

Totally agree, it does have the feel like we have turned a corner regarding our defence, i don't know if all that is down to VVD coming in or if we have made a change regarding the way we defend, i also find that we are also scoring from more corners, which used to drive me up the wall last season, either a corner would be blasted high or wouldn't make it past the first man. These games were always our achilles heel, especially after playing midweek, we seem to have a better balance this season, we have obtained the most points from January 1st than any other team if I am correct, only lost once and that was to Utd away, whatever the team has done it feels we are definitely heading in the right direction, and I haven't been this confident going into games in a very long time as a Liverpool supporter.

I also agree that the owners have done a good job, I always wonder if some fans are always quick to judge our owners simply because they are American after the 2 Cowboys that was in charge before them? I think FSG run the company like a business, ofcourse they are business men, they want the same as what every person wants, a return for what they buy. Yes the owners should be judged on the basis of success and trophies won, however we are moving in the right direction. I feel we are gathering a squad capable of success, the owners are smashing our own transfer records year on year now, remember 10 years ago our highest transfer record was 20million for Torres, now we are paying 75million for defenders, we have a top class manager who players will want to play for, we have extended our stadium to 54000 seats, and further plans to take it to 61000 seats, making it the 5th largest stadium in English football.

I think mistakes were made when the owners first arrived at the club, PR disasters and listening to the wrong people etc, but I feel the owners now are doing things the right way, I would prefer owners like FSG compared to a Mike Ashley or an Abramovich, I like that they are silent owners, because there is no need for them to be talking about this or that, because there is more chance they could say something that will end up being slated by the press. We slowly are building, and I always felt that the goal this season was to do as well as we can in the Champions league and also qualify for Champions League for next season, and we are on track to do both really. It is amazing to be once again in the latter stages of the CL and also to be in the top 3 of the League, we have a very good chance to finish 2nd this year. The last time we finished back to back seasons in the top 4 was 07/ 08 and 08/ 09 seasons, so we need to be realistic, i don't think we are quite ready for a title push but i feel we are getting there and it is because of the owners. Sadly i feel our fans these days though will slate the owners and the manager at the slightest bad result, it is nice that the anti owner posts have subsided for now.
