Good day Eds.

Sorry about throwing in a random name, but have we or any other team looked at Youri Tielemans of Anderlecht. Been following the Belgian league and saw him in the Champions League. Very composed for a 17 year old. 18 tomorrow.

I feel he has the potential to be one of the best in his age range in the coming years.

Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - Lots of interest from clubs but not Liverpool.}

1.) 07 May 2015 05:50:16
Hasn't he agreed to join Atletico?

2.) 07 May 2015 06:24:56
Has he agreed to go to Barca in 2016? Saw that on another forum.

Ed02 is in fine form today with his banter. as if he has been waiting all year for Liverpool to lose by a wide margin.
It's all good though. At the end of the day, it's still 3 points.
Hope Klopp has learnt and would stop playing Klavan against pacy strikers. His lack of speed makes him want to drop deep even if everyone is pushing up.
Not bashing Salah, but this is probably the 3rd straight match he's one-on-one with the 'keeper - on that right side - and he's trying to curl it round. Perhaps he should work more on his finishing.
I know it's only the 4th game, but I hope we're looking at bringing in a CB this January. I think the top 4 teams of last season will finish in the top 4 again. but a CB can be decisive w. r. t where we finish.


{Ed002's Note - They might be a bit rough around the edges but there is no rhyme or reason to hang them out to dry just yet.}

1.) 09 Sep 2017 18:05:45
Salah was the only player today that had any chances. Those chances were created by his speed and runs. Without Salah there would have been no chances to talk about.

{Ed002's Note - Sadly he zigged when he should have zagged.}

2.) 09 Sep 2017 18:43:41
Exactly Ed. Hindsight is perfect sight but he needs to vary it a bit and just ping it into the nearer post with his right foot a la Michael Owen. Still ok with Salah tho. Wasn't our day today and I thought City were better even before Mane walked.

{Ed001's Note - he doesn't need to vary it, just be more precise, as he was not putting it wide enough.}

3.) 09 Sep 2017 19:47:36
Salah beats men and gets chances - when that stops it's something to worry about - not now!

4.) 09 Sep 2017 20:08:54
Suarez went through a part of a season where he struggled to hit the target with consistency. Salah is not Suarez, I'm not saying he is, be patient, he is getting chances and in the right positions. He will come good.

5.) 09 Sep 2017 22:05:02
Rumour has it salah has a glass eye 👁‍🗨 and that is why he is so one sided. Can you clarify this eds?

6.) 10 Sep 2017 01:06:11
youd think they would have him just practising that same shot in training because he gets into that situation so often.

7.) 10 Sep 2017 01:07:42
he could get 30+ goals a season if he mastered it.



31 Aug 2017 19:03:56
If Ox is the last transfer, would've been a good window. Got in players for the positions we need - outside CB.
Hope the players that want out will get good deals to the clubs they want.
Icing on the cake would be Emre Can signing a new contract. If only he hadnt agreed to move to Juventus.




30 Aug 2017 10:54:29
Barcelona going for Lemar. Lazy journalism, I suppose. But it would be interesting if they got him and left Pipco. Imagine the scene when Pipco resumes. Lol.




29 Aug 2017 17:23:36
Why not Draxler instead of Lemar. Cheaper option, been able to adapt in a different country, so adaptation might not be a problem (Just saying. Not bashing Lemar)
And why does Klopp want 3 goalkeepers. He's going to stifle the development of 1 of them. Still hope Ward leaves on loan.


1.) 29 Aug 2017 17:39:11
Lemar will flourish with us look wat we did with coutinho, suarez, firminio, mane an many more when the quality is there we as a club bring it out the players especially under klopp, jus hope we get a good centre back hopefully u know who!

2.) 29 Aug 2017 17:46:14
Coz he snubbed us once!

3.) 29 Aug 2017 18:40:28
Incorrect, Harry. He did not snub us cos we did not and were never in for him. If I'm not mistaken, Ed02 mentioned that repeatedly in January when many were moaning as to why Klopp did not sign him before he went to PSG.



29 Aug 2017 09:37:10
Admittedly, I've never seen Lemar play.
But a 70m purchase has to start IMO.
For those that have seen him play, who does he replace in the starting 11?
Not that I'm against his purchase, just curious about who he replaces.


1.) 29 Aug 2017 09:46:36
In my opinion, it's not about who he replaces it's about strengthening the squad. Injuries, fatigue and tactical changes mean Mane, Salah, Lemar, and Kent will all get their chances to play (Kent less so) in those wider attacking positions. Long gone are the days of the starting 11, it's a squad game.

2.) 29 Aug 2017 09:56:44

3.) 29 Aug 2017 09:48:46
He can play in a midfield 3 where Coutinho was intended to be used this season or on the left wing. Considering his price tag, he will start alongside Hendo/ Can and Gini in midfield but move to the wide positions if/ when Mane or Salah need a rest.

4.) 29 Aug 2017 09:54:51
He doesn't have to start. He is a excellent option to start or be on the bench.

Our problem for years has been that if someone gets injured or tired, then we have no backup. Now, finally we are starting to have multiple quality players in most positions.

Sometimes he will play instead of Salah, sometimes instead of Mane. Sometimes he will play instead of Gini, sometimes instead of Can.

Sometimes he'll play instead of Henderson or Firmino.

Sometimes we'll play a slightly different system.

Sometimes he'll be on the bench.

We don't have to play all of our best players all the time.

5.) 29 Aug 2017 10:02:48
Wouldn't say definitely. but it certainly gives us the option to drop one of the midfield 3 and play 3 in behind a more orthodox striker or even firmino.

So we would like up something like

Can hendo
Salah lemar mane
Firmino/ Sturridge

Could be a useful option to have against deep sitting sides at home.

6.) 29 Aug 2017 10:12:44
Other than CB and GK positions I don't think our first team needs strengthening.

But we do need a stronger bench when the games are piling up in Nov / Dec.

7.) 29 Aug 2017 10:22:33
Can replaces Henderson for me and Lemar slots in with Wijnaldum!

I'll go for Goretzka with or without Keita. I expect to lose Coutinho and Can. Goretzka-Hendo-Keita.

Diego Godin.

Barcelona bidding at 7:30 would be interesting though. 15 mins before kickoff, with the players wondering if he would be sold before the end of the 1st half. Lol.
Unless they don't get to see the news.

I doubt we can get Donnarumma Ed01. Wouldn't he be crazy expensive? Like €100m expensive or something insane like that?
Secondly, I believe it would be difficult to sign an "acceptable" left back. There are very few who understand that as defenders, they're meant to defend first.


{Ed001's Note - his contract is running down, he would have been available for a reasonable price.}

Ox and VVD. 90m wasted if we get both. Just go all out for Mendy and prepare for next season.

It was a good performance by the players. I criticised the attack a few days ago because I felt if we were more clinical, the defense would be under less pressure.
Admittedly, it was a woeful Maribur, but they'd no attempt at goal in the 2nd half. Not even off target. NONE. Despite the fact that we took the foot off the gas a little bit. They wouldn't risk going forward because they knew they would concede.
That's what I want to see from the attack every week. Be clinical and stop the opponent from coming forward.

Ed025, I know most favour out and out strikers ala Lewandoski, Kane etc.
For me though, with Messi and CR7 as part of this team, two players that won't track back, I want strikers that would sacrifice cos I don't want 3 players up front not tracking back.
Would've gone for Dybala, but he won't work well with Messi. Suarez and Lewandoski would've to sacrifice part of what makes them good to accomodate CR7 and Messi.
Benzema and Bobby though can play their normal game and the team would still be balanced.
So, for me. Bobby and Benzema. I added Kane as the 3rd cos I'm impressed with his finishing.
And I know there are 23 players and different persons can play, but I'm assuming Messi and CR7 will ALWAYS play, so get the strikers that fit.


{Ed025's Note - benzema is a whole lot of trouble realtofel, i pesonally would not touch him with a barge pole mate, even though he is a very talented player..

With Messi and Ronaldo in the team, I think scoring won't be a problem. The striker the team needs IMO is one that will work hard and create options for those two.
I'll go with Benzema, who I think is one of the most intelligent strikers in the world. He has the ability to adapt to whoever he plays with and that's why he's still with R. Madrid
Secondly is our own Bobby Firmino. How many strikers have the ability to press and create spaces/ chances for others to exploit. A fantastic player.
Thirdly is Harry Kane. Good off-the-ball movement, good finishing.


{Ed025's Note - bobby is a good player but never a striker mate, he pussy foots about too much and wears bananas instead of boots..

Probably Dres Mertens.
