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.}

10 Aug 2018 21:25:51
Ed1 if your about and watching the United game, what's your take on Baileys tackle on Iheanacho, for me that's a pen, didn't get get the ball and took his leg? Thick commentators praising him for a good tackle.


{Ed001's Note - I would not have argued if a pen had been given. He did get the ball afterwards, but only after the leg across and a push in the back. Not the clearest cut penalty ever, but it would have been given as a foul anywhere else on the pitch.}

1.) 10 Aug 2018 21:32:29
Refs aren't filling me with confidence for the season and its only the first game 🙄.

2.) 10 Aug 2018 21:56:51
Leicester were unlucky not to go away with at least a point today, James Maddison looks a really bright prospect as does Ben Chilwell.

{Ed0333's Note - the Ben Chilwell we nearly signed. Another one that got away.

3.) 10 Aug 2018 22:06:00
Was there VAR guys? Is it planned for all games or some? Fa Cup maybe?

4.) 10 Aug 2018 22:10:47
Personally I thought it was a penalty straight away, they got lucky with that one but a hard split second decision to make for a ref that one.

5.) 10 Aug 2018 22:13:58
I thought Ricardo was very good for leicester.

6.) 10 Aug 2018 22:19:29
Robbies better and we wouldn't of signed him of we had of gotten chilwell so silver's linings.

Madison is a few season off being good enough for us. Needs god develop over there and then he might be ready to get in a bigger team like us.

I hate this developing players lsrk. Top clubs should really only be buy8ng ready made.

7.) 10 Aug 2018 22:23:28
I thought Chilwell looked quite good. He seemed to have a field day on the left.

8.) 10 Aug 2018 23:10:44
Do you reckon they would swap for Moreno? Nah happy with Robertson to be fai!

9.) 10 Aug 2018 23:58:50
To be fair I thought Unt were pretty comfortable in that game even though they conceded most of the posesion they did what they do and I expect they will get top 4. Under mourinho it will never be pretty but they will grind out results as they showed tonight.

10.) 11 Aug 2018 01:48:54
I'd rather have Moreno than Chilwell.

And kloppsboss. You are normally so sensible. Bringing players through is a responsibility of lfc. We have had some truly amazing home grown talent. Robbie fowler, Stephen Gerrard, Jamie carragher. And that's just premier league era. I'm sure I'm missing loads, Steve mcmanaman. Rob Jones? And now young trent. Micheal Owen came through the ranks. These days half the boys in the academy are not from Liverpool. We buy them young, and bring them through. There was a 16 Yr old last summer, we bought and it was a big signing. Can't remember his name, he was from Eastern Europe I think. Its a serious business not to be dismissed by sweeping gestures. If anyone knows the name of the lad I'm talking about it would be appreciated i think he is a CM.

11.) 11 Aug 2018 05:08:00
@ Robbiejames. VAR to be used in FA and Carabao cup games but only at Premier league stadiums.

12.) 11 Aug 2018 05:19:17
I didn’t see what you all did with Chilwell. He got wherever he wanted but really didn’t do much with the space he was given.

13.) 11 Aug 2018 07:25:01
Rob Jones was signed and went straight into the first team. We can’t take any credit for developing him.

There needs to be a mix in a sqaud of home developed players and ready made in my opinion.

14.) 11 Aug 2018 09:15:31
Rob Jones, was a promising young player when he signed, but you can't say Liverpool didn't help his development, I bet you Rob himself would tell you by training alongside top internationals and being coached by Roy and Ronnie improved his performances.
Development doesn't stop when a player goes straight into the first team.

15.) 11 Aug 2018 09:55:23

No dude academy yeah. They should be our young players but as for first team players, top clubs shouldn't buy players years away from there best.

We literally just wasted 5 years on can for him to have his prime over in Italy. We have players like origi who you thought would of been good bu5 instead don't reach thag potential.

Now we're signing ready made talent like vvd, fabinho, keita, Salah, Alison who have all had there development elsewhere and we literally get there best years, which then gives a better platform to the likes of Trent and Curtis Jones to fit in to a starting 11 made up of very experienced tip players rather than a team of players not much older than themselves.

Being in a dressing room of players older, wiser and more sensible is only more productive in there development.

Like shaqiri now he has had years messing around at other clubs and we get him ready at 26, ready to go.

City, Chelsea, barca, United, arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea, Madrid, Munich all have enough money to buy formed players. It's not wrong to sign a real. top young talent here and there but yp7 should build your teams on 24+ really. We have started that and now where tipped for the title.



07 Aug 2018 21:16:46
For me, Sturridge starts against West Ham.


1.) 07 Aug 2018 21:19:05
Instead of who?

2.) 07 Aug 2018 21:23:53
Bobby, not knocking him at all but Sturridge looks sharp.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 21:27:41
Have a word with yourself.

4.) 07 Aug 2018 21:28:40
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
And I'm not talking about Sturridge's injury record.

5.) 07 Aug 2018 21:37:28
I'd still go with Firmino. But if he's not effective or still rusty, then bring Sturridge on in the 60th minute.

6.) 07 Aug 2018 21:44:23
lol Sturridge instead of Firmino? mate come off it.

7.) 07 Aug 2018 21:44:58
4-2-3-1 Mane Firmino Salah behind Sturridge.

8.) 07 Aug 2018 22:31:25
Can't start sturridge he'd get injured.

9.) 07 Aug 2018 22:58:45
Sturridge has missed a LOT of chances in pre-season.

10.) 08 Aug 2018 01:39:00
Sturridge instead of firmino is not so crazy. Klopp is worried about fitness and bobby was one he said. He is not long back off holiday, whole Sturridge has been consistently scoring goals, against decent teams.

Bobby is our no9, no doubt. But I wouldn't be surprised to see Danny. F.



04 Aug 2018 19:54:40
Sturridge looks like a real voice in that team now, great ball for Moreno's thunderbolt as well.


1.) 04 Aug 2018 19:59:35
And Shaqiri looks like a steal for 13mil. We'll see how time plays out with him but he's obviously got loads of ability and seems made for this level. If he can sustain a work rate to go with it then there's lots of oppportunity for him and reason for us all to be excited. Main thing though, its going to be a real privilege to watch and support this team this year.

2.) 04 Aug 2018 20:09:39
He’s grabbed that No2 striker spot and shown that he wants it and is better than anything else we have that could play CF. A poor start to the pre season and he could be at the likes of Palace or Stoke now but the kid looks ready to fight and battle and is humble enough to know he has to wait for games. Great turnaround in fortune for him, it’s deserved after all the problems he’s had.

3.) 04 Aug 2018 20:21:41
Shaqiri has a great footballing brain as well as being very talented. He seems to slot in effortlessly and reads the game so well. A great buy at £13 million.
What a goal by Moreno!
Good performance all round and an entertaining game for the capacity crowd in Dublin.

4.) 04 Aug 2018 21:43:07
i don't like to question the integrity of a proffesional player. but i think mo must have offered their keeper a signed shirt at half time if he just pretended he was on our team for the 2nd half ;p.



10 Jul 2018 07:22:43
Think Wilson has a place in the squad this season Ed? Seem to ask this question before the new season every year 😆.


{Ed001's Note - like every season it will depend on how he gets on during pre-season.}

1.) 10 Jul 2018 07:51:29
From what I remember Ed, you said Klopp’s reservation was his lack of tracking back/ defensive effort (apologies if not accurate? ) .

What do you think of him ability wise? He looks to a classy player on the ball and can score goals.

I really hope the lad knuckles down an earns a spot for us this year as a rotation option.

{Ed001's Note - you are correct. The lad has plenty of ability, very skilful and can score goals.}

2.) 10 Jul 2018 07:58:50
I think it's his time to shine. The experience he got with hull will stand to him.

3.) 10 Jul 2018 08:13:49
Having never played professionally, i don't understand why some players find it difficult to track back or play a different role when their team is not with the ball.

4.) 10 Jul 2018 09:25:02
Yeah similar to how Klopp has absolved Salah of some of his tracking back duties in order to stay up front on the last defender, I think that's a role Wilson can perform. I'm hoping to see him score so many goals in the next few games that he forces Klopp to consider him a viable backup option in that Salah role.

My preference is to have Wilson and Moses Simon as backup to Salah and Mane. With Shaqiri nowhere to be seen.

5.) 10 Jul 2018 10:39:46
ED1 makes the most important point about Wilson, he scores goals which everyone says is the hardest and most important part of being a footballer. Let's hope he has a great pre-season, gets himself a squad number and bangs in a few for us this season. plus wouldn't it be great to see one of the Academy kids who was considered to be the next big thing to actually become the next big thing!

6.) 10 Jul 2018 10:42:21
JM, Wilson will have to earn that right to do that just like Salah did cos Salah was not doing that when he first arrived. He earned the right to do that. Also, Salah did (and still does) a tonne of tracking back in games as well, something Wilson per Ed01, needs to improve drastically amongst other things like finding space in tight areas etc. Whether he can perform that role is still to be seen, clearly.

But I do agree with you that I would stay well clear of Lazy Boy Shaq and get in Moses Simon who tho is raw, can do more than a job for us if we can harness his Mane-like potential.



04 Apr 2018 19:06:31
Wonder if Masterson will see a few minutes? What a way to make your debut if it happens 😂.

Agree with the questionable signings, but he's a hero for more than just football in my book, plus he won us the only champions league I've ever seen and didn't deserve the treatment he recieved towards the end of his tenure. Man deserves a medal for what he's done with that Newcastle team as well 👍.

3-0 Mane, Firmino and Salah, all 3 must be itching to score.
