I was watching a Gary Neville interview today from early this season where he grudgingly admitted Liverpool had a realistic chance of winning the League this season, but he made a point of saying the amount of games we played would massively effect our challenge.

Got me thinking about the FA Cup. I know if Lovren has stayed on it might’ve been different but does anybody think that was a game Klopp played to lose? Like why bring the kid on for Lovren if you wanted the win - wasn’t TAA on the bench? Cynical I know, and a massive gamble, but might he have looked at the big picture and just thought sack it off? I’m not saying either way but wondered what you lot thought.

pompeyred

{Ed025's Note - i think your right pompey, even when you equalized he never cracked a smile, which is unusual for him as hes usually like a raving lunatic on acid..


1.) 10 Jan 2019 20:58:20
Do you really think that TAA would have performed better than Hoever at CB? TAA is no central defender, and has already been called out for suspect positioning when defending. Ki-Jana seems to be able to play right back and cover CB. TAA is playing right back but can play centre midfield.

What were the other options? There's no way he could have moved Camacho into central defence and obviously couldn't have moved Moreno there either. I think Ki-Jana was the only real obvious solution.

Gini wasn't even on the bench, who has played there once or twice when we've really needed him to.

I don't think any other substitution would have made sense apart from bringing Hoever on.


2.) 10 Jan 2019 21:06:18
He announced to the whole world that Mignolet AND Moreno would start. Clearly winning the match was not very important to him. He figured he could allow 20mins to salvage it and hopefully play a lesser opponent next round, but the match was not important to Klopp. I myself would very much love to win the FA cup soon but never mind.


3.) 10 Jan 2019 22:22:51
Why would Klopp have brought on Salah and Firmino if he wanted to lose the game? He wanted to win the game but he also wanted to rest certain players who have played almost every game recently.


4.) 10 Jan 2019 22:53:53
The Premier League should be our number one priority then Champions League. FA Cup and League Cup are bonus if we win it nice if not don't care.


5.) 11 Jan 2019 02:40:28
I disagree, he wouldn't have played Salah and Firmino if he wanted to lose. It's dangerous to draw the match and face a replay next week, so why put those two in as substitute?


6.) 11 Jan 2019 02:58:02
I found it surprising didn’t at least have VVD, Hendo or Gini on the bench - we were clearly short senior players in midfield/ defence in our starting lineup so if he’d really cared about the result that much, he would have had at least one or two of those as backup there.

I don’t think he deliberately wanted to lose, but he clearly wasn’t fussed enough about the result to risk depleting and already thin defence with another injury. I also don’t believe all three of those were nursing niggles, he just wanted to make sure they were available against Brighton.

{Ed001's Note - van Dijk was ill and couldn't play. Gini and Hendo both needed a rest badly.}


7.) 11 Jan 2019 07:27:09
Depends if you think playing a kid CB at CB is more of a giveaway than play a kid RB/ CM at CB!?


8.) 11 Jan 2019 07:37:02
You can’t win anything with kids.


9.) 11 Jan 2019 08:40:38
Interesting Ed - I don’t agree with throwing cups games, but if the case is the team needed the rest or risk jeopardizing their PL performances then I completely agree with what he did.

{Ed001's Note - with those two it was more a case of risking injury if they had played.}


10.) 11 Jan 2019 09:01:24
I don’t think he ‘threw’ the game but I also don’t think he was too concerned about winning it. Yes he brought Salah and Bobby on but only for 20 minutes when it was clear either one or both should have come on at half time. Watching the pair of them I also thought they played within themselves, perhaps being told to take it easy.
He said himself before the game winning the FA Cup will not stop people moaning it has to be the league or CL.
Perhaps Lovren’s injury had an effect on his attitude towards the game and in the end he just just sacrificed it rather than risking further injuries to first team players.


11.) 11 Jan 2019 15:31:05
If we had no chance of winning the league I'd have been bothered about going out of the cup. I actually can't even remember who won it last year. The league is the clear priority with CL second.


12.) 11 Jan 2019 16:53:06
Even with the kids and the total disruption to the defence, if it hadn't been for our own mistakes, I don't think Wolves would have scored at all. Mignolet had absolutely nothing to do throughout the whole game.

I think Klopp put a team out and hoped we might get through, but probably didn't expect to. As stated earlier, there was zero reaction from him when we equalized.

I just hope we can pick up the points tomorrow in what will be a very tricky fixture.


13.) 11 Jan 2019 18:32:48
Agree KBL. Wolves didn’t look great. Certainly not enough to bother our 1st 11. got to say apart from Milly and Fab the other established squad players were poor - Origi, Sturridge and Shaq particularly. I’ve still got high hopes for Keita though. With a bit of confidence he’ll be fine. Think he’s got to be central though or maybe further up. Doesn’t look like the hard graft of chasing back comes naturally to him. Probably not a good idea to play him in the same team as Shaq let alone Sturridge aswell.


14.) 12 Jan 2019 11:05:06
Klopp took the game as an "inconvenience" and that is the way we played it. Even when Origi scored, it seemed Klopp's head was elsewhere. Do I want to win the FA Cup? Of course. I want to win every game we play BUT there is what I want and what the reality of football actually is. Players needed a rest and those that needed it, got the rest and that to Klopp, was the most important thing regardless of what I think.


15.) 13 Jan 2019 13:47:53
The only thing that matters right now is racking up enough points over the next 12 weeks to win the title.

It's been almost 30 years and I would like to see it happen again before I leave this earth.

I don't believe in "throwing games", and no LFC team should ever do that.

But we may not have a chance like this again for several years, and it would be extremely short-sighted to do anything that jeopardizes the collecting of the 40 or so EPL points we need from our remaining 16 games.

That includes the Bayern Munich game, four days before we play United.

Couple of quick questions for the Eds ref Fabinho? I think you said we beat Atletico Madrid to his signature; do you know why the Madrid deal fell through? And secondly, were any other clubs seriously interested at the price being asked? Thanks 👍🏻.

pompeyred

{Ed002's Note - Atletico Madrid turned to Fabinho after their first choice for this summer had shunned them over concerns about playing time. They had also shown interest last summer but the offer to buy him and not take delivery to January fell on deaf ears. They returned a few weeks ago and had held some early discussions with Monaco which resulted in a stalemate as a price could not be agreed between clubs. They returned again to talk on Saturday but they again could not agree a price.

Of the clubs previously interested, Juventus had originally wanted him as a RB but he was not first choice so it drifted away; Arsenal had baulked at the asking price - set high as part payment will be due to Rio Ave, Fluminense and Paulinia; Manchester United let their interest wane, largely because the player wanted a move to Manchester City, and they moved on to another target - who will also not be signing for them; PSG were only planning to use him as cover and thought him too expensive for that purpose. It was made clear last summer to the other sides who enquired (including Liverpool) that he would not be sold until this summer.}


1.) 30 May 2018 22:27:47
Great info Ed02. I think He will be a top player for us.


2.) 30 May 2018 23:27:33
Thank you Ed. ✅.


3.) 31 May 2018 00:09:41
Ed002 just out of curiosity was Manchester United's other target Savic?

{Ed002's Note - Not for that position.}


4.) 31 May 2018 00:25:15
It was Jorginho and even he said no to utd.


5.) 31 May 2018 00:52:19
From what I gather PSG wanted him last year but Monaco refused to sell to their rival. Player was not happy but got heas down.


6.) 31 May 2018 04:04:41
I wonder who Atletico’s first choice was?


7.) 31 May 2018 05:52:52
Did you know how much is lfc transfer budget for the next season ed?

{Ed001's Note - it does not work like that.}


8.) 31 May 2018 04:48:36
Just shows how many different factors can come into play with regards to transfers - and also shows why things can and do change so quickly. Interesting stuff Ed.


 

 

27 Dec 2017 20:31:17
Hi Ed's,

Are you aware of any firm interest from other clubs in any of our players?

I don't think anyone will be surprised if Couts leaves in the Summer but is there any interest in our Goalkeepers or defenders? I just have a hunch the Jan shopping is not over with Virgil (New keeper maybe) and some outs may also be on the horizon.

Cheers.

pompeyred

{Ed002's Note - The club will look to sell Markovic and sell or loan Wilson. Grujic and Woodburn should leave on loan. Coutinho interests Barcelona and Salah Real Madrid. Interest in Manefrom Madrid has gone. Ward will look for an out in the summer. There was interest from Spain in Sturridge and Ings could get a loan. Origi will likely look to options in the summer. Flanagan perhaps will look elsewhere.}


1.) 27 Dec 2017 20:44:01
I bet you feel like a parrot at times Ed2 mate lol.


2.) 27 Dec 2017 20:44:56
Thanks Ed 👍🏻.


3.) 27 Dec 2017 21:13:41
Not including Salah and Coutinho all of those players leaving could add up to a nice sum of money.


4.) 27 Dec 2017 21:21:54
Including salah and coutinho, it could add up to a lot more.


5.) 27 Dec 2017 23:50:47
U guys joking or what? Salah won't be leaving LFC in the near future. Perhaps in 3/ 4 years after performing consistently. I hope we start winning things quickly to avoid this.

{Ed002's Note - Try the search engine - you need to understand that clubs become interested in players doing well - particularly those who approach them. }


6.) 28 Dec 2017 08:15:38
You watch, we will build a solid defence and then the attack will get sold haha, I think we could cope with the loss of Coutinho with a top replacement brought in but to lose Salah too so early would be a blow, Van Dijk coming in and Keita in the summer gives our team a stronger look already, add to that a top keeper and more than likely a solid left back and we can look to push at challenging for top spot or a trophy, now let's hope Klopp takes off his blinkers regarding Mignolet, Ward deserves a shot now in the league as Karius is playing CL, any firm interest in us looking at Keepers Ed? Anyone been approached that you know of?

{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of. We have had a fair few looked at but nothing firm yet.}


7.) 28 Dec 2017 12:53:02
If ward doesn't get the FA cup game to impress then he should be demanding a move. The other two have had chances.


8.) 28 Dec 2017 18:38:03
Can anyone give the date of when Ed2 discussed the interest in Salah - if I'm reading this right? I used the search but there are pages and pages of results.

Cheers in advance.

{Ed002's Note - A few weeks ago - Salah had his representitives approach Real Madrid. Maybe search on Hazard or Neymar. Interesting to see Klopp telling the press about his apology for substituting him - anyway, this "lack of respect" has caused his agent to request a meeting.


 

 

14 May 2017 08:54:56
What's the plan for Markovic Ed? Spose his Anfield days are over? Are Hull likely to make a permanent offer? Also, was wondering whether you think we should've kept him with Mane away at AfCon and now out? Might've give us the width on the right we been so lacking.

pompeyred

{Ed001's Note - he is available for transfer and had no interest in coming back to be cover for Mane.}


1.) 14 May 2017 09:02:49
Hull will not be able to afford Markovic unless we pass him on to them for free and he accepts a much, much lower wage.

{Ed025's Note - with the sky money they will max, even the smaller clubs will be spending big this summer and lazar is well within their budget mate..


2.) 14 May 2017 09:24:08
If Hull were to be relegated they will still get a decent cut. Playing in the Championship has no place for Markovic within their wage budget.

Staying up, I cannot see Markovic agreeing to move their permanently.


3.) 14 May 2017 09:22:12
Even for a championship club?

{Ed025's Note - yes craig, with the parachute payments they will still have plenty of dosh to spend mate, and the likes of markovic will not break the bank as there is not much interest from elsewhere..


4.) 14 May 2017 09:41:14
In my head I'm thinking about a fee around 10m (could be well wide of the mark) . That would be within their budget I'm sure but it would be a large chunk I'm not sure they would want to part with.
I could be wrong but I don't see him joining Hull if they go down.

{Ed025's Note - hull are a very ambitious club craig and have very good financial backing in place, your take on the fee seems about right to me and that is well within their parameters mate..


 

 

10 Jun 2014 21:30:48
Sebastian Coates made the Uruguay squad. Is he likely to play and could he still be in Brendan's plans? Personally, strikes me like someone who could go on to blossom if sold -to our regret. Kinda like a Gerard pique / Paul pogba.

pompeyred

{Ed002's Note - The club will sell him if the can.}


1.) 10 Jun 2014 22:08:14
Giménez is injured so Lugano will likely partner Godin. Hopefully, from a Liverpool perspective, Coates will overtake Lugano, get some game time, perform & attract a buyer.


2.) I hope we keep him, I think he could be a good player


3.) From a Liverpool point of view I would like him to get ahead of Lugano, have a storming World Cup, have confidence up the wazzoo and come back to Liverpool performing like we have never seen before and playing Skrtel/Toure etc out of the team.

Unlikely I know, but if we are writing wish lists, this would be mine.


4.) I agree but BR doesn't like him for some reason. Easy replacement for Agger and backup to Sakho, besides we would also have Toure and Kelly. if we had Sakho, Skrtel, Toure, Coates (and Kelly) as our CB options next season I wouldn't mind one bit. He would also allow Ilori to go out and get game time instead of being 4th choice.

if not offers of around £4m come in then loan to a team in the Serie A would be my second option before selling him for dirt.


5.) Forgot about Caceres everyone?


6.) I'm surprised people still think he could make it at Liverpool. He's too slow, not a bit too slow but a way too slow. He's not good on the ball either. I'd imagine we'd be accepting £2m or who knows we could even accept half that.

Hopefully he will get some game time but I would expect Lugano to get the nod as per RedKev.


7.) Wez B - I believe Caceres plays LB for Uruguay


8.) Caceres will likely play at full-back.


9.) 11 Jun 2014 17:38:28
Maxi Peirera is the first choice right full back

If we're witnessing an upturn in our season I'll mark the start as that performance against Napoli to keep us in the Champions League. That was the first game since the early season wins where I was completely invested, kicking every ball and on the edge of my seat. For me we were completely dominant and it instilled some belief that we are actually a quality side.

With the recent form of Fab, Salah's returned hunger and sharpness, glimpses of Keita's quality (and obv VvD and Alison) we have the perfect platform to push on.

Whoever finishes above City are likely to win the League. We're there at the moment- just got to stay hard to beat and keep our focus for Every match. Any dropped points will be punished. It's a tall ask but that's the difference between being Champs and runners up again. If Klopp can keep the squad focussed on the prize it really could be our year.

pompeyred

1.) 22 Dec 2018 17:02:51
Newcastle next, that should be the only focus. Talk about what could be at the end of the season does nothing except build up expectations before we've actually done anything - take it game by game, keep putting in consistently good performances, and see where that takes us.


2.) 22 Dec 2018 17:30:55
I would agree with you there Pompey. If we're going to look for a turning point for the season, then I would say that game was pretty much it. The puzzle really got put together well in that game.


3.) 22 Dec 2018 21:04:37
Pompey to me, all games (and wins) are important and add something to the successful season. You talk about the Napoli game and you are correct that it was enthralling. But remember, that game would have meant nothing had Bobbie not come of the bench to score the winner vs PSG at Anfield in the first game in the group. That was the game that made the Napoli game relevant hence, we had something to play for. With out it, it would have been a dead-rubber game, really judging by how we performed during the group stages as a whole.

As for what will happen if this or if that, Seano is correct, IMO. Next game is Newcastle and that is the way it should be. Why? Cos that is the way Klopp and the boys are taking the season so far and City losing today should NEVER change that mindset. Stick to what got us here and focus on the next game.


4.) 22 Dec 2018 23:03:58
I agree with you both - that’s basically what I said about focusing on Every game. But i also think there’s value in the team believing they can win it. Not talking about arrogance or even confidence. Just believing you’re good enough.


 

 

12 Dec 2018 08:49:21
Can VvD's yellow card be contested Ed? He clearly got the ball before the player.

pompeyred

{Ed001's Note - it was a foul, the decision was the correct one. A follow through is a foul now. Why have people forgotten when you were all complaining how Burnley got away with the exact same things?}


1.) 12 Dec 2018 09:20:50
As it was a European game, I thought he was lucky to stay on the pitch when I saw the replay, maybe I’m wrong.


2.) 12 Dec 2018 09:35:31
Yep there was a case for red two although im certain there was no intention.


3.) 12 Dec 2018 10:17:42
He was a bit lucky it wasn’t a red - you can’t follow through the ball studs up like that. Ancelotti is a bit rich for whining about that though, as Verratti did exactly the same tackle or worse in the first leg.

{Ed001's Note - Verratti? He doesn't play for Napoli, he plays for PSG, Ancelotti is in charge of Napoli.}


4.) 12 Dec 2018 11:41:07
Dedinitely a foul and at least yellow. Then it depends on the individual ref if its a red.

I rekon there needs to be some responsibility laid on the tackler which is why VVDs tackle as well as those from Burnley should be called.


5.) 12 Dec 2018 13:26:26
Just based on what i see weekly in the EPL (but don't know the exact rules on the subject) studs up with one leg usually ends up with a yellow and studs up with both legs usually earns an immediate visit to the changing room and showers. Not as simple as that, but that's what I have noticed.

{Ed001's Note - and that is the way it is meant to be now.}


6.) 12 Dec 2018 13:53:29
I was against the decision at first BUT I didn't see the replay, my stream buggered up as it was about to show it but I saw it this morning and yes it was a clear foul. There's no backing that up imo. I don't think he intended to do it but it's not the point. Overall the ref was bloody useless imo but with that one he got it right.


 

 

18 Oct 2018 19:50:22
Not been on for a while Ed. Sorry if I've missed all the posts covering it but how's our injury crisis in reality? No Mane, Keita, Salah, van Dyke?

pompeyred

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any injury crisis. Mane has hurt his thumb but that does not impact his game. Keita has an issue the club has yet to comment on. There is nothing wrong with Salah or Van Dijk.}


1.) 18 Oct 2018 21:40:21
The fans are having a crisis about an injury crisis that is not a crisis.
Our squad this season has a lot of quality in depth, even if all them players missed a game we have the quality in reserve for it not to matter too much.

{Ed025's Note - i agree mikey, and your next 2 opponents are very easy meat..


2.) 18 Oct 2018 22:34:06
Van Dyke? Is she in the women’s team?


3.) 18 Oct 2018 23:31:44
I didn’t know Dick’s nephew had signed for Liverpool.


4.) 19 Oct 2018 06:12:06
Great. So if both our matchday keepers sustain an injury in the 90 minutes, we can't put Mane in goal. Sounds like potentially a major crisis there.

{Ed001's Note - argggghhhhh!!!!! Now I am panicking, quick call the FA and arrange an emergency loan of 7 goalkeepers for the bench....}


 

 

28 Aug 2018 16:27:30
Wanted to discuss Ed001's Brighton write up comments on Matip. Ed was saying how little impact Matip had on the game and the confusion it caused our back 4 for the last few minutes.

I'm not sure what Klopp was thinking on Saturday. We know he sometimes likes to bring on an extra defender in the closing minutes to protect a result, but did he take Trent off to prevent the chance of a 2nd yellow, bring Matip on to help with crosses or was he reacting to Brighton's subs?

Either way, I think I'd prefer to see a forward sacrificed and a midfielder added instead of a defender. As a player and manager I hated tampering with the back 4 unless unavoidable - injuries, red cards etc - especially with just minutes to go.

pompeyred

{Ed001's Note - I agree with you, I don't like his decision to change the backline late in a game to protect a lead. It very rarely works.}


1.) 28 Aug 2018 16:44:07
Oh ed it's so frustrating.

Sit back fine but bring Shaq on and say hey if you want 6o get that goal back where going to punish you on the counter.

Not gives everything you have got and we will offer nothing but resilience.


2.) 28 Aug 2018 17:53:55
I can't stand when he does that. It invites pressure. I fact the only faults I can pick with Klopp ever, is his substitutes.


3.) 28 Aug 2018 18:11:43
Bringing on an additional CB - especially if you were to take of an stacking player- just in cities more pressure.
You can’t pin their fullbacks, more space outside as they will get a 2v1 so in effect you get more crosses slung in.

Don’t get the thoughts behind it. However- I’ve not managed professionally so hey-ho!


4.) 28 Aug 2018 18:37:58
It creates belief in the opposition and it is for me klopps biggest flaw.

A very simple one to improve upon but the thinking last year and the year before was that he didn't trust the players on the bench or believe he had the options.

He went and got the Shaq, but doesn't seem to think he could do much from 60 mins. Is it trust? In him or the players that are on the field

Once we are dominating we can sacrifice a wij or Milner for Shaq and just go for the jugular. That's the champions. Kill teams off. When your up, and the match is over, keep the pressure on there throat. Never let up.

It only takes 1 error or bit of luck for a team to get a goal. Remember wanyama the show stopper last year.


5.) 28 Aug 2018 20:12:38
Me neither, Ed. It has NEVER worked. In fact, it is the main reason we have been conceding goals late in games to deny us the win in games past. He needs to stop doing that ASAP.


6.) 28 Aug 2018 20:23:01
I both agree and disagree with what you're all saying.

Klopp has a history of bad substitutions and last season especially whenever he switched to a back 5 it always brought a lot more pressure on us rather than remedy it. As you all mention, this is definitely one of his flaws.
Also, as I've probably mentioned one too many times now, I don't rate Matip - never have and never will. At least not on this level. He's never really looked up for the task and whilst a shame, I'm looking forward to Lovren coming back so we have Gomez as our backup.

With all that in mind, it seems to me (so far) that Klopp has learnt from his mistakes in earlier seasons. His overall substitutions and timing of them seems a lot better this season. When he brought on Matip against Brighton, I feared the worst, but the fact that he didn't change away from the back 4 seems like a very good sign for me. Add to that, while it didn't really stabilize us, neither did it put more pressure on us than what was already there. Where before, with the late change to a back 5, we would have easily crumbled. So while it didn't really help us much, it didn't worsen us either. I think that's an important point.

Klopp might still have a few mistakes in him here and there, but overall I trust his substitutions way more than I've ever done. Even when he brings on Matip - and that says a lot.


7.) 28 Aug 2018 20:26:23
I don’t love it either but to say it NEVER works is over the top, it worked at the weekend! We did not concede!


8.) 28 Aug 2018 22:07:57
Nor have we conceded yet this season! What do people really want? You can’t get better than 100% guys! Please be happy it won’t last forever.


9.) 28 Aug 2018 22:53:12
Don’t think we actually switched to a back five, more reshuffling a defence which has gone 88 mins without conceding seems strange to do so for 5 mins left. Rather have Fabinho or fresh legs in the midfield to win the second balls or stretch the game.


10.) 28 Aug 2018 22:58:37
I want to understand why he does it. He’s a great man manager, a great motivator, knows how to build a team, makes improvements where required, loves to win and is patient enough to wait to see a long term project succeed. So why does he persevere with this flawed tactic that causes confusion and invites pressure? It’s out of step with his football philosophy of the high press and has a questionable record of conceding late in games. Makes no sense to me that he still uses it and that he doesn’t try another way to close games out.


11.) 29 Aug 2018 07:55:39
Never bring on Matip “to help with crosses”.
He is a hinderence with any ball above shoulder height because he likes to let it bounce.


12.) 29 Aug 2018 08:12:26
Its not about it working. Its the fact that LIVERPOOL where at home against Brighton and there a solid team, we had a 1-0 and said to them that's it where protecting this and then that instantly gives the opposition a lift. They want to see Matip not more pace on Shaq.

Again it only takes a fluke to concede and why give anyone any extra confidence. Keep the pressure on and never let up.


13.) 29 Aug 2018 11:44:28
Didn't he come on to defend a corner? I thought at the time it was a necessary sacrifice as Matip was more likely to head the ball away than Trent.

Was at a Festival yesterday and just seen the game. Thought we showed signs of promise. It's not if we click this year it's when. Keita was quiet but he's obviously got the quality. Full backs kept trying. We were a little disjointed up top but that's credit to Brighton too - they were very well organised. Totally got Ed001s recent comments on Big Virgil - he looked out of position sometimes, even wrong side of his man, but always had enough power and pace to save the situation - something that needs work there. Gomez was solid and Henderson kept up the pressure when he came on. My man of the match was Gini tho. Not his biggest fan but he did play well yesterday. Also, got to mention Allison. Great acquisition by the club but I reckon it's going to be interesting at times! Love his confidence and composure on the ball but it will cause drama over the season. Looking forward to it all tho. going to be an entertaining season.

Him, mignolet, reina and Brucey all started with 3 clean sheets.

Let's hope it doesn't take a turn down the Simon and stays on the right pepe.

Wasn't Victorious festival by any chance? Yeah first time I've really noticed Van Dijks sometimes poor positioning- particularly I think it was Groß's header. We will only improve though!

Yes Bledd. Libertines Friday. Paul Weller Saturday. Honourable mentions to Billy Bragg and Brian Wilson. Great little Festival.

Agree KBL. Wolves didn’t look great. Certainly not enough to bother our 1st 11. got to say apart from Milly and Fab the other established squad players were poor - Origi, Sturridge and Shaq particularly. I’ve still got high hopes for Keita though. With a bit of confidence he’ll be fine. Think he’s got to be central though or maybe further up. Doesn’t look like the hard graft of chasing back comes naturally to him. Probably not a good idea to play him in the same team as Shaq let alone Sturridge aswell.

Regardless of his behaviour when trying to get the Barcelona move, You’d have to consider what the deal would cost and what else you could get for the same price. Also, how our performances and results improved almost overnight after he left. Great little player but we’ve moved on.

Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. At this stage I’d be happy for Karius to go and prove himself elsewhere and Migs to stay as reserve. 👍🏻.

Thanks Ed superb. At the risk of sounding like a stuck record I really think Wilf Zaha could bring something to a top team. I assume it’s the cost and the questions about attitude that puts the big clubs off but he can really boss a game when he’s in the mood. Great ability and great athlete.

Puts me in mind of the John Barnes signing from Watford. The whole country knew what he was capable of but it was still a shock when Kenny signed him. I just think with the right Man management Wilf could be a regular match winner.

It’s all about opinions of course and there’s possibly better ways to spend 40 odd millions but no signing comes with a guarantee. Yes we’d all love Jadon Sancho, Dembele or Christian Pulisic but they could be twice the spend and none have any experience of ripping up Premier League defenders like Wilf does pretty regularly.

{Ed002's Note - It is pretty tiresome ssing tyou repeatedly bring up a player Liverpool have zero interest in. Crystal Palace are aware of interest in WZ from elsewhere but there are no firm offers I am told and they don't want to let him leave before the summer. The two replacements they have in mind strike me as probably unobtainable to them.}

Nothing wrong with Walter having his opinions. And I don’t think he’s trying to be funny, he’s just having his say. This site is for Liverpool fans and therefore Walter has as much right as any of us so I for one do care for his posts.
