Think Sturridge will start tomorrow Ed?


{Ed025's Note - no RTID, i heard he was suffering with split ends mate :)....hes just not good enough to displace any of the front 3 imo mate..

1.) 24 Aug 2018 08:09:56
I would say Bobby hasn't been at it but its early days.

2.) 24 Aug 2018 08:45:34
id say start studger, he looks in form and there has been a different vibe about him in the pre-season and has scored few goals too.
Can start and give way to bobby around the 70 minute mark if it is required. Bobby i feel needs to keep it simple and smart. He has a very good squad all around him and he can feel free to be the authoritative striker now. doesn't have to drop that much, unless its to win possession back.

3.) 24 Aug 2018 08:51:14
I think we need to be able to switch one out at a time, gove then periodic rests and still be able to perform. I’d rather that than resting all three at once and expect a front three of Lallana Sturridge and Shaqiri to be at the same level.
lol at city, mahrez sterling played one week, Jesus the next and sane hasn’t even started yet. I know their gulf is less, but I would not go into saturdays game with a front three of mane Salah and Sturridge thinking we lack quality.

4.) 24 Aug 2018 09:18:30
Bobby will start, he needs run of games to get sharpness back. I can see him scoring tomorrow, the man is a class act and 1st and foremost a team player. I like the idea of Sturridge being an impact sub.

5.) 24 Aug 2018 10:40:04
If it isn't broken don't fix it, that front 3 got us to a champions league final. Bobby is class and will rightfully start.

6.) 24 Aug 2018 11:00:05
But they can't play every game Adam, and bobby looked a bit sluggish the he last 2 games, not saying he shouldn't start and with all due respect to Brighton, it might be a game to concider it,

7.) 24 Aug 2018 11:00:14
I would start Shaqiri in midfield tomorrow alongside 2 of hendo, milner, keita or wiji.
Brighton will park the bus so we need some further creativity from deep.

8.) 24 Aug 2018 11:17:39
We are playing 1 game a week why would you rotate? Do it when we play 3 or 2 games a week.

9.) 24 Aug 2018 12:38:52
Don't change a winning side unless you need is the old maxim. The front 3 pick themselves, and as others have mentioned before Bobby is lacking sharpness, which he won't regain sitting on the bench.

10.) 24 Aug 2018 12:50:40
Our front 3 needs a nice run of games to get firing on all cylinders again so that’s what I would do.
The rest are back ups not starters.

11.) 24 Aug 2018 16:33:08
I think we are more likely to see Shaqiri start tomorrow rather than Sturridge.

12.) 24 Aug 2018 16:48:21
If players need a rest at game 3 then there’s something wrong! Play Bobby every game I say, we are a different animal when he plays!

13.) 24 Aug 2018 18:31:22
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.

14.) 24 Aug 2018 18:54:49
The season has just started and we have almost a full week between the first 4 games. Why make any unnecessary changes now. There will be plenty of times during the season where squad players will get plenty of chances. They need to be patient and take their chance when it comes.

15.) 24 Aug 2018 20:00:13
It's 2 games in the whole team looked sluggish salah for me looks of also

But teams take time to get going very short pre season for the lads at the world cup aswell

Patients lads.

{Ed025's Note - i disagree dezy, hammered the "ammers" and comfortably dealt with a tricky visit to palace mate...i really dont know what you guys want!..

16.) 24 Aug 2018 21:30:31
I think we should just leave it up to Jurgen, why the sudden need to start meddling with the team?
All the players wear monitors and are constantly assessed so relax and enjoy the ride Reds.

17.) 24 Aug 2018 22:54:15
Give Sturridge 15-20 mins at the end once we're 4-0 up.

18.) 24 Aug 2018 22:11:18
Go ed Polecat lad, is right.
Jurgen will do what he needs to do, although Bobby is first on the sheet for me followed by Alisson Becker.
Going for a win to nil again, 3-0 or 4-0.



28 Mar 2017 10:45:23
Ed, do you see flannagan pushing on and getting a chance next season or do you think that ship has sailed? Cheers in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Whilst I am sure Jon Flanagan would relish the opportunity to return to the Liverpool squad I very much doubt that he is on Klopp's mind at all. Unfortunately I suspect that Liverpool would be open to selling Flanagan in the summer - he will make a good buy for someone.}

1.) 28 Mar 2017 10:57:06
I'd say he will go to Celtic under Rodgers can't see any premier league teams being interested In him.

{Ed002's Note - I think that would be a very good option if they did not have Lustig and Gamboa plus cover already in place.}

2.) 28 Mar 2017 12:16:48
Suspected as much, cheers.

3.) 28 Mar 2017 12:47:11
In a squad so severely lacking in fight and desire, the inevitable sale of Flannagan is criminal and if Klopp doesn't find a way to bring in more character/ get some out of the players we already have, it could be a terminal one. Right now, considering how much we need his attitude, I'd take him over everyone except maybe Bellerin in the PL.

4.) 28 Mar 2017 13:05:23
Could a Swap Deal for him and Tierney be an Option ed? Flanagan could play leftback for them?

{Ed002's Note - Why on earth would they consider something like that. Give away their outstanding youngster for a player they have shown no interest in and would need to play out of position - would he be above Emilio Izaguirre in the pecking order even?}

5.) 28 Mar 2017 13:34:42
Sorry Ed was only asking.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}

6.) 28 Mar 2017 15:27:29
Have to say I hope he surprises us all and gets a look in pre season, haven't had player with his attitude at the back since Carragher, if he can prove he's fit of course.

7.) 28 Mar 2017 15:58:54
Wouldn't we want retain Flanagan (and Wisdom) as he is Trained at the Club and would be considered Home-Grown for Champions/ Europa League squad registration. Who do you think will make the cut as the 4 Home-Grown players trained at the club?
Correct me if I am wrong, but registering U21 players would certainly come at the cost of squad depth.

{Ed002's Note - That would be a waste of their careers - Liverpool using them to meet quota. They wouldn't get a game.}

8.) 28 Mar 2017 17:33:14
Its a shame, but often players don't recover from such horrible injuries, or at least if they do it takes several years and most clubs are not that patient.

I really wanted him to work out as he was that scouse spine, and I will always remember his goal against Spuds!

9.) 28 Mar 2017 19:47:06
I don't care if I get down voted, sadly he just isn't good enough. He's a local lad with loads of passion and I admire him for it and during the 13/ 14 season he was a revelation but since the injury he has gone so far backwards and now can't get into Burnley's side, I mean Lowton isn't a bad player but if Flanno was anywhere near our level he would be starting ahead of him, at least occasionally.

10.) 28 Mar 2017 20:40:55
I agree with HX Red.

11.) 29 Mar 2017 03:41:28
I suspect the same fate awaits danny ings, these serious injuries cost the players vital momentum, TAA has took advantage of Flanagan's situation and milner was given the left back spot, his loan move to burnley has been a disaster.

12.) 30 Mar 2017 03:41:33
I understand the desire to have a passionate scouse lad to replace the like of Gerrard and Carra but if you aren't good enough, you aren't good enough. Unfortunately for the lad he's just not up to scratch.

{Ed001's Note - he showed he is up to scratch, but he is recovering from a serious injury. I would give him a bit longer personally. It takes years to get over what he has had and his attitude is first class.}



20 Jul 2014 16:47:18
Hi ed's, what's the situation with Ron Vlaar? Great World Cup and very much a stand out player in a very average Villa side. I believe there's only a year left on his contract and would be much cheaper than Lovren. Have we or anyone shown an interest? Cheers in advance


{Ed002's Note - Others yes, Liverpool no.}

1.) He's old and he was average at Villa last season!

2.) I think you may want to check what villa fans thought of him last season before you call him their "stand out" defender

3.) Are Man U looking at him ed?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

02 Jan 2019 10:21:52
Morning ed, just wanted to get your thoughts about Etheridge and if he would potentially be a solid Migs replacement in summer? He looks reasonable to me and if Cardiff do end up back in the championship he's not going to cost the world. Think he would play second fiddle?


{Ed002's Note - He is a journeyman Championship level goalkeeper who Liverpool has no interest in. Liverpool could do much better.}

1.) 02 Jan 2019 10:35:12
Thanks man 👍.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 11:15:36
No no no, probably only get him out for a penalty shoot out.



05 Nov 2018 11:47:39
Ed, what do you make of Danny Ings situation at Southampton. With them likely to be relegated, it surely puts his transfer fee out of their price range? He's looked good, a bit rusty, but the best player in that Southampton side. Where do you think he'll end up?



{Ed002's Note - They are satisfied with Ings and will buy him at a fixed fee on July 1, so nothing has changed with his situation.}



24 Sep 2018 08:16:27
My god, how did you lot not win yesterday ed25? Just catching up with yesterdays footy, was expecting arsenal to have all the play but you hammered them for the first 30 mins. Congrats to Davies on the band as well, big day for him and did it justice Imo.


{Ed025's Note - we had our chances RTID thats for sure, i think if we had took one or two in that first half then we would have won, but once we failed to score the nerves kicked in and thats when it went tits up mate, im happy with how we played but we are missing a salah esque player who knows where the onion bag is...if you are thinking of selling him give us a shout.. :)

1.) 24 Sep 2018 18:31:10
Thought you's were the better team ED025, especially first half. Tore them open countless times and really should have made those chances count. Thought your heads dropped after the goal though and it never looked like you were going to get back into the game once you's conceded. You's cvertainly look much better under Silva than you ever did under Allardyce that's for sure.

{Ed025's Note - i cant complain about the football seano but we need to start picking up points, im not panicking just yet but it is a results game and we need to be more clinical in front of goal mate, i think we will give someone a bloody good hiding sometime soon and maybe that will kick start our season..

2.) 24 Sep 2018 19:26:23
Ed025, I appreciate that the occasional televised match is not the best way to judge a player - look at the uninformed stick that good Liverpool players like Wijnaldum and Henderson get from armchair supporters, including so-called Liverpool supporters - but I have never understood why Tom Davies is rated by successive Everton managers. Committed and energetic, yeah, but apart from a goal against City (I think) a couple of years ago, I haven’t seen any real quality from him. What is the Everton supporters’ view of him?

{Ed025's Note - the view would be that he is still very young and a bit green at times WW, he is also lightweight at times but this kid has got talent let me tell you, bags of energy and an eye for a pass and is learning very quickly and being local and an academy graduate it gives us faith in our system, i would not play him in every game myself as it should be slowly slowly catchee monkey with the youngsters but this guy will be an england international within the next year or so imo mate..

3.) 24 Sep 2018 19:37:40
Being clinical is definitely your weakness - apart from that I thought you's matched Arsenal and were better for much of the match. If it wasn't for a top quality finish, and a blatant offside, you's may of well done it. Not sure Tosun (or any of your forwards) have that killer instinct required - certainly an area you could improve in eh.

{Ed025's Note - very much so seano, i believe its a confidence thing at the moment but think the january window will see us address that problem mate..

4.) 24 Sep 2018 19:46:58
Thanks Ed025, I trust your judgement so a bit strange to make him captain against Arsenal then? I’ll keep an eye on his progress towards the England team.

{Ed025's Note - i think it was done as a confidence boost to the guy and a fillip to the academy youngsters mate..

5.) 24 Sep 2018 22:34:35
Why not give him a crack, nobody else in the current Everton squad stands out as the undisputed captain anyway. He's hungry, local and Silva knows after giving him the arm band, he'll run through walls for him. Just needs to start chipping in with goals from range and be a bit more aware with his positioning.

{Ed025's Note - i cant argue with that RTID mate..

6.) 24 Sep 2018 23:14:42
I think with Everton l, they’ve bought a new back five in this season and last, spent a lot of attacking options, like Richardson, Tosun, sigurdsson etc, but still play Calvert Lewin up top. When you have Keane did you need zouma and Mina when you have young cover there - should have gone for someone with an eye for goal, maybe a big guy for the likes of the mentioned to run around. and who knows how to stick it in the net!

{Ed025's Note - hindsight is a wonderful thing firmane, im sure silva wanted a top striker mate but you cant have everything..

7.) 25 Sep 2018 23:45:05
Think the games between us will be great this year.



11 Sep 2018 10:00:56
We'll I'm now signed off work for 3 weeks with 2 broken fingers and a dislocated knuckle, keep those player profiles coming Ed, the light reading will go a long way to keeping me entertained 👍.


{Ed001's Note - sorry to hear that mate. I will try and push through some quick articles for you and Salah as you are both complaining of boredom!}

1.) 11 Sep 2018 10:27:18
get well red. hoping for a speedy recovery.

2.) 11 Sep 2018 10:54:26
Cheers lads, typical that it would happen the morning that i was due to trial for Jamie Oliver's Nottingham restraunt 😆😑 a chef can't do much with one hand though.

3.) 11 Sep 2018 11:30:33
That'd be great Ed!

Get well soon red! Take care mate!

{Ed001's Note - I am on it now mate.}

7.) 11 Sep 2018 18:30:41
Get well Red.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.

8.) 11 Sep 2018 19:36:27
DaRedMan - thought exactly the same 👍

Swish - I’m loving your work 😄.

9.) 11 Sep 2018 19:53:52
Ed01 i know you not really into the NFL but any chance u can do one of those articals on Walter Payton probably the best running back to grace the NFL and seen by many as a top bloke

{Ed001's Note - I can certainly do an article on him, but it won't be something in the quick ones as it will require me to do a lot of research. I know absolutely nothing about him. However I have added his name to the to do list.}

10.) 11 Sep 2018 19:59:22
Just when u get time will do fella a know u have a lot on but if you could let me know when its done would be appriecated.

{Ed001's Note - I will try and get to it as quickly as possible for you.}

11.) 11 Sep 2018 20:03:06
RTID, You'll have 7 LFC games to watch over the next 3 weeks. You'll have more than enough excitement with the games and the comments here 😉.

12.) 11 Sep 2018 21:43:29



06 Sep 2018 19:12:36
Hi Ed, any thoughts on Solanke's perceived lack of progress? I'm not sure myself, part of me says he's only 20 what do people expect, but on the other hand he is pretty well physically developed, should he be pushing for a starting place? Are the club concerned?

Cheers in advance.


{Ed001's Note - in my opinion, and I said it before he joined us as well, he looked better than he was in youth football because he was more physically developed. Now he has no longer got a physical edge he is struggling.}

1.) 06 Sep 2018 22:21:50
Agree with Ed001.

2.) 07 Sep 2018 10:11:46
Do you think he will or can step up?

{Ed001's Note - I don't think he has the ability yet, so he would need to work harder than he has been. Personally I think it was a mistake to sign him and we would have been better off putting our faith in Origi.}

I think its madness to let him go, Who could we possibly get of Dannys calibre who is reasonably happy to play back up. I don't understand why we would stick by him through all of the injuries to release him when he's playing his best footy in years. Besides, 110k isn't that much compared to what most top prem strikers earn, I bet Girouds on similar money and i know who id rather have on the bench.

In fairness to Moreno he can never be accused of not playing his heart out, unfortunately he's just not of the required level.

I second the Carra report page, would stop the questions about how youngsters are progressing if you could click on a link, just a thought.
