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.}

16 May 2019 12:32:02
Ed, read a couple reports saying PSG might be interested in Bobby. I'm sure he's perfectly happy where he is, but I was wondering if there was any truth in their interest?



{Ed002's Note - See previous answers please.}

1.) 16 May 2019 14:34:59
I’m interested in Scarlett Johansen but I’m not going to get her.

2.) 16 May 2019 16:05:43
She has said she has been single for almost 10 years now Southern Red. So you may have an easier shot than you think. 😉.

3.) 16 May 2019 16:44:20
Ah seen, many thanks.

4.) 16 May 2019 17:10:37
I have such hope every hour of the day, although she never responds to my carrier pigeons.

{Ed001's Note - I think your problem is that you have been sold false hope. Carrier pigeons (I believe) are extinct. So the ones you are sending out are obviously just ordinary pigeons and are not delivering your messages and that's why you have got no response. You will probably see some old dear throwing bread for them in the local park.}

5.) 16 May 2019 17:39:20
Johansen is famous for loving a good pigeon.

I think your messages ARE getting through, TSR, despite Ed001's scurrilous stirring, but unfortunately she eats them before she's had a chance to reply.

I wouldn't send an e-mail either as she's also partial to a byte.

Letter is best, just not rice paper, as that's her favourite accompaniment to sauteed pigeon.

She's also a fan of cat-toast.

You heard it here first.

6.) 16 May 2019 17:58:57
But maybe the old dear will go out with you mate!

7.) 17 May 2019 09:54:46
They are wasting their time. PSG are nothing but a running joke in France right now esp. after they were humiliated by Utd, embarrassed by Rennes in the French Cup and how they were humiliated again in the League Cup. Joke of a club and their manager is just as clueless.



15 Apr 2019 19:49:36
Ed2 if I may, if I remember correctly (please correct if I'm wrong) that you weren't sure that Moura would be a good buy for Spurs before they signed him. I hadn't watched much footage of him before he signed, and didn't expect much of him based on your opinion.

Has he changed your opinion this season? I think he's worked out alright, might of made a good squad player for us. Again, apologies if I've made that up, it just stuck in my mind because you don't often get involved in rating players, cheers anyway.


{Ed002's Note - I have had no thoughts about him at all this season.}

1.) 15 Apr 2019 20:44:06
He’s bang average mate. Ask any spurs fan. He can appear good if you don’t follow him closely and just watch motd highlights.

2.) 15 Apr 2019 20:47:10
For what it's worth he scared the c£&p out of me when we played them and he had another great game this weekend, hopefully he has another couple of good games this week.

3.) 15 Apr 2019 23:08:44
I hope Lucas Moura has the best game of his career on Saturday against City.

4.) 15 Apr 2019 23:15:39
I think he’s alright, he seems to be working hard, and for his size he seems strong, was holding our defenders off well in the recent game. His finishing is more power over precision, and can go wrong, but I think he’s been decent for spurs.

5.) 16 Apr 2019 00:19:57
Better than being just a brazilian walcott as a lot said when he first moved there. he's not too old to find a focus in matches and improve and affect games.

Then you have players like Eriksen who can pick a sensational pass fairly often but goesb missing far too often and most of the time might as well not be on the pitch when they don't have the ball. But he gets a wholelot of loving.

Can't trash spurs without mentioning the big lump wanyama who scored a good goal vs huddersfield and a scorcher vs us last season to make up his career highlights. Also Dier, Ben Davies and Trippier just decent players, not really thay extra needed quality for a team that wants to win trophies. I think Poch has done a decent job to have so many average players in 3rd place. I would pay good money to sign Son though.

I know this is a very bizarre post I just got carried away due to my dislike of spurs, my older brother being the most insufferable spurs and indeed football fan ever.

6.) 16 Apr 2019 03:26:21
A couple of years ago Spurs had a fantastic squad with Lloris, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Kane, Dembele, Dele, Son etc. but they have failed to add the extra 2-3 players to really take it to the next level. I fear for them now if someone like Kane leaves and given their back 4 is not what it was.

{Ed0333's Note - I could have sworn this was the Liverpool page mate? Let’s keep this space free to eulogize about our heroes.

7.) 16 Apr 2019 16:07:25
I like son but would take erikson if i had the choice. Sorry ed033.

{Ed001's Note - why Eriksen? Good player when given time and space, but is terrible when put under pressure. He is one of the most Spursy players they have. Son, on the other hand, is a great player.}

8.) 16 Apr 2019 05:35:24
Fair point Ed 😂. it’s quite noticeable how we’ve blown past them in the last couple of seasons though, particularly how we’ve reshaped our back 5 to be the best in the league now IMO.

{Ed0333's Note - I was just being facetious mate feel free to talk about anything you want. But dismembering male escorts is off limits as it’s a touchy subject for Ed’s 001.



14 Mar 2019 06:43:53
Morning ed. Great result last night, I'm not normally one to mention specific player performances, but surely Matip's tendancy to volley the ball at his own net should see him dropped for Lovren as soon as he's fit? I've never seen a cb do it so regularly and on another day could of cost us the game.


{Ed001's Note - I would swap them myself, until Gomez is fit anyway.}

1.) 14 Mar 2019 07:49:54
I thought matip played okay last night. Where was he supposed to put the ball with lewandowski breathing down his neck? He drove forward with the ball and was a danger at set pieces. He also kicked lewandowski off the park.

I'd still pick lovren over him though and gomez over the both of them.

2.) 14 Mar 2019 07:58:00
Is it me or could allison dealt with the cross? Any defender in that position is more than likely going to put in the back of his own net.

3.) 14 Mar 2019 07:58:51
Robbo was at fault for the goal and lewa was there to tap it in, I think Matip did ok. We haven’t lost a game he’s played, I really don’t know why people are caught up on Lovren, he threw countless points away last season. If anything they’re both average defenders and we definitely need an upgrade come the summer. De liht competing with Gomez would be awesome, I thought he was great against Real Madrid.

4.) 14 Mar 2019 08:06:45
As much as I don't rate Matip I don't blame him for the own goal. It was just one of them, I don't think many could've avoided it.

Still though, he scares me half to death when he's on the pitch and I can't bloody wait until Lovren and Gomez are fit, until then he'll have to do but again, I can't point the finger at him for that goal.

5.) 14 Mar 2019 09:18:59
P1, it’s you, believe me it’s you.

6.) 14 Mar 2019 09:44:02
I dunno, matip has definitely improved. And having him and vvd at corners and set pieces is so dangerous and difficult to defend.

One of the posters said we haven't lost a game he has played in. He can't be doing too much wrong.

He isn't an old defender, he has time to improve and he clearly is improving. And it'd something we should all be hoping for.

People wrote lallana off this season but he has proved he can adapt, I think matip deserves a break. He kept a legend of a cf completely quiet last night and he seemed more aggressive, which has always been my criticism of him.

7.) 14 Mar 2019 09:44:31
P1 and OP, absolutely not Matip's fault. In fact, by getting a foot on it he at least introduced the *possibility* of the move not resulting in a goal (could've gone over, woodwork, past etc) . If he hadn't connected, Lewa was right behind him.

The 'error' (if you can call it that) was made when Gnabry was able to get past Robbo.

8.) 14 Mar 2019 09:53:04
Matip seems to be getting a lot of stick on here lately, but more often than not, he is defensively sound. It's his unpredictability on the ball that is letting him down. He needs to understand that he doesn't need to do something special every time he receives the ball. He needs to take a leaf out of VVDs book and keep it simple 99% of the time.

9.) 14 Mar 2019 10:12:58
Well said red rum. Simple and accurate.

I can also see a partnership with vvd being formed although Joe gomez is the 2nd best cb at the club.

10.) 14 Mar 2019 18:29:50
Lerchy, "Lovren threw away countless points last season". Care to elaborate on that cos That is patently false? You may not think he is good enuff and that is fine BUT pls, stop making up nonsense about players you don't like. That makes your argument dishonest and mean-spirited.



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.}

I doubt any of our centre backs will look to leave this summer, realistically its their best chance of a prem title, assuming we don't win it this year.

02 Jan 2019 10:33:54
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.

Is Shaq really that bad? Surprised so many want to replace him to be honest. For 12 mil I think he might be bargain of the season, although just remembered Robbo's price, either way both have done well for me.

{Ed001's Note - somebody else suggested that as well. It is something we considered a while ago but there just wasn't the facilities around to do it back then. I will have to look into it again as I know now there are companies who will print to order and deliver direct, which never existed back when we thought about it.}
