Ed001 don't know if you are going to do a review on non-LFC managers but if so then Alec Stock might be one to look at.

{Ed001's Note - I am going to gradually get through all the professional teams I can mate.}

Is Cameron Brannagan being retrained as a holding midfielder?

1.) 22 Sep 2017 04:46:16
He is not going to get a chance. If I remember correctly lfc were Keen to sell him this summer.
I always thought he was genuinely good player but powers at Liverpool think otherwise.
He is not a defensive mid though.


2.) 22 Sep 2017 06:23:08
If I remember correctly Rossiter (now gone) and Chirivella were the more defensive mids coming through. Is Chirivella rated to make it or is anyone else coming through?

i liked the looks of Jordan william long before he was injured i don't even know if he is still with us and what's happening to him. he looked aa a natural DM.

{Ed001's Note - he went on loan for the first half of the season, he is still trying to get back to form after a long term injury. I had to look up who it was he went to as I had forgotten, but it is Rochdale.}

Eds - if I want to post on another site do I have to create an account on that site or should this one work? Just tried few hours ago but my post isn't coming up.

phil_LFC

{Ed001's Note - it probably just didn't come up because no one was about at that time to edit. I have only been up just over an hour myself mate. You don't need a new account and there was a post from you posted on one of the sites I remember as I had to check which site I was on!}


1.) 07 Sep 2017 06:39:44
Thanks mate - will try again:-)

One for Ed001 - what's your opinion on Manolas?

phil_LFC

{Ed001's Note - can be overly aggressive at times, but he is a solid defender, from what I have seen. Just that he always seems to be on the verge of getting a red card. He is one of those players that opponents will target to wind up, as he can be wound up.}


1.) 14 Aug 2017 08:55:01
If he cuts out his short temper, he is exactly the kind of Cb I would look at. He let fly at one of his team mates while watching Roma play after conceding a shocking goal. That's when I happened to mention him as a possible option.


2.) 14 Aug 2017 09:25:18
Well Matip can't be wound up even if he were a clock. The two would complement each other.


3.) 14 Aug 2017 09:35:34
Spot on, X. Matip just seems to rely on his natural skill to get him out of jail and that will not work in the PL. He needs to show some grit, fire and much more physicality in the challenge. A CF has to know that you are there and that it will be a long day for him. Matip does not do that at all.

Its only worth signing players if they are going to improve us. Its easy to say the current ones aren't good enough but no point is flushing money down the toilet simply to announce a transfer. Point is we have to find player (s) who are better than our current ones who are also available and wish to come to us - which is why Jan is always tricky.
Personally Id like to see money spent on overhauling the scouting department.

Ed001 - is the news of a right back because TAA and Gomez aren't progressing as quickly as possible. Or are they looking to move Gomez into the centre?

phil_LFC

{Ed001's Note - because Clyne is unwanted and TAA is not expected to have a future there. Long term Gomez is expected to move central, but not for a couple of seasons at least.}

George T that should be a quick fight.

He looks effortless when running with the ball. Has a good work ethic and looks like he has a competitive streak. Gets the ball and immediately tries to promote it forward. One caveat, he does seem to try and pull off the miracle pass a bit too often in my opinion - sometimes at the expense of a sideways pass which would be the smarter option.

Ron I agree that the system will adapt but a large part of that will be because Keita is different to Can (for example) . Hendo already tends to be the base of the triangle - a big problem is that when he presses high, he isn't being covered by his team mates and so a gap opens up.

Part of the issue with Ozil being regarded as lazy is that fans don't see the number of times he presents himself as an option for a pass only for it to be ignored. He gets into some great positions but for some reason, the midfield don't see him. Maybe he needs to be like Sanchez and get stuck into them for not doing so.

Ed001 didn't they both have injuries that kept them out for a bit and held back their progress?

Yes ManU have done well this year. I think they surprised many with how well they started the season off - Lukaku was on fire (as he is usually is against weak teams) . The purchase of Matic could well be the buy of the season in terms of how he has allowed the rest of his teammates to feel more free to attack. However the goals have dried up in their last 4 games which I know concerns my ManU mates. Its way too early in the season to be making conclusions yet. I would like our defence to be more solid (which they are showing signs of) but I would hate it if it comes with a style of footy that is dead boring to watch.

I thought the closest we had to inside forwards nowadays was the inverted winger?

The coaching should be better at academies but not necessarily so. i've watched a few in my area both running training sessions and at matches and some of them are pretty ordinary. There is a lot of pressure on them to win and this can come at the cost of the kids improving. So kids are taught to play safe and not take risks. To follow orders and not learn to think for themselves. And if you aren't in the best 11 then you can struggle for game time if the coach doesn't have a policy of sharing game time around. Plus they can pigeon hole your child into one position which will also stifle their development. However some are very good. So before signing your kid up to an academy, my advice is to go to some of their training sessions. Watch how they speak to the kids. Do they have a plan for the session. Are they able to explain it to the kids. Are the sessions fun. Do they teach the kids the skills they need. Do they teach the kids how to think and be adaptable? Is the coach prepared beforehand or do you have to wait for them to setup? Do they talk too much.
Then go to some matches and see how the coaches behave when the pressure is on. Do they abuse the kids if they make mistakes? Yell at the refs? Give game time to all the kids? Encourage them? Allow them to learn or try to control them like robots?
