Hi all,
I'm hearing lots of rumours that we are in negotiations with PSV for Bakalli. Not sure if these are true or just journalist rehashing old stories but I thought I should pass it on.

Hi Ed002, if you are around, I remember you saying a while back that Australia was robbed of the World Cup. I was wondering if you could extrapolate on the reasons why?
Speaking as an Australian the World Cup in Australia would have been amazing, we know how to have fun and can host decent tournaments (Sydney 2000) but most of all it would have given a massive rise to the popularity of the sport within the country. It's been growing each world cup but if we actually hosted one it could do a lot to dispel the myths about football that exist within Australia and boost its popularity amongst the younger generations.
Sorry for the lack of relation to Liverpool,


{Ed002's Note - The reasons why were simple - they wanted it moved to the January/Februry window. They have a potential legal claim and I would suspect a future application would be looked on sympathetically to avoid any grief. The claim, to be honest, could be fixed if FIFA hadn't sold certain rights to Fox so far in advance. A good question Reshi.}

Ed002 wow thanks :) Hopefully Australia will get it soon then.

So i thought i'd give my half-arsed and completely unasked for opinion on what i want to happen for next year. There is a short term part of me that wants us to go out and buy ourselves a title.
However we don't have european football next season, so we lack the resources to do this. Furthermore we have a great coach who can, and has, turned ordinary players into extraordinary ones and we have some exceptionally talented youngsters who need game time. So the best thing for the clubs long term good is to not go out and buy some players.
The key for this transfer window is to strengthen a few key positions, like Lb, and to move on a lot of players. I would personally like to see the likes of benteke, skrtel, allen, lallana, milner, and moreno leave from the current first team, along with balotelli, illori, etc.
We don't need to buy a new Rw, with branngan, Ojo, Canos and Ibe all capable of playing there i would prefer to give them a chance, with the knowledge that origi can cover for big games or we can move to 3 in midfield or a front 2 in big games.
I think the key to a successful season next year is getting back in europe and setting ourselves up for the long term and blooding younger players is the best way to do this, which means not buying a whole new team.
So, ideally, the only remaining signings would be chilwell and possibly hector. If Coutinho was to leave then someone like Praet or Zielinski, young but with more experience than what we have and won't demand all the game time to still give our younger players a shot, and maybe the likes of dahoud to shore up the midfield. And a new goalkeeping coach!
We've got Klopp and a few fantastic players, let's give him time to work his magic before demanding a new team which we can't afford.


1.) 11 Jun 2016 08:08:37
I remember we signed Phil Babb because he looked like a world class central defender, what we failed to realise was that he only looked good because he played alongside a world class centre back in Paul Mcgrath who told him where to stand and covered up his mistakes.

2.) 11 Jun 2016 09:14:31
Our current squad wasn't good enough for top 6 this season, what makes you think that the same squad will do any different next season? There are serious problems that need addressing, if we don't buy the right players next season will be a write off as well. As things stand I think the best we can hope for is mid table obscurity as we don't have enough top class quality to compete. Of course I would like to be proven wrong, but I am being realistic. You don't win titles without a top class centre midfielder and we lack any real pace or guile.

3.) 11 Jun 2016 10:50:13
Our current squad wasn't good enough for top 6?
Well actually it was. Klopp took over we were in 9th if I'm not mistaken? If you look at our results towards the end of the season also while we focused on the el we could have had an extra 7 points I can easily think of just taking out collapses and goalkeeping errors (which hopefully could be better with karius) . If we had focused on the league we had opportunities at times to be going for the top 4 let alone top 6.
Also injuries you can't ignore the fact that we had no strikers for a period of time just after klopp came in while he was trying to change the style.
And the fact that we had to change our game plan and style of play without a preseason which will obviously take time. Now hopefully with last season and a preseason this year we should be well able to start off better.
Finally I know it's used all the time now but for good reason. Leicester went from skin of their teeth survival to champions without overhaul just pinpointing a couple of key areas like the op said and then working on the harmony and team ethic. To say that this squad has no chance of top 6 is a joke I'm afraid when there any number of external causal effects that had an effect on last season. Again I'm not trying to say we'll definitely be up there but on our day we showed last season we cn beat anyone so it's only one game at a time and as long as in every game we have a chance to win which I think we do then we Have a chance to achieve anything.

4.) 11 Jun 2016 10:54:36
I loled at Paul Mcgrath being world class.

5.) 11 Jun 2016 12:08:16
Sorry Shane but we weren't good enough for top six, where did we finish? League table does not lie, it never has. You cannot make a silk purse out of a sows ear.

6.) 11 Jun 2016 12:55:08
If the league table fine then by that logic the team from 17th went to first with little to no tinkering. Why can't we make a jump up the table 4 or 5 places if they can 16? You're just ignoring another part of the post to defend one small part.

7.) 11 Jun 2016 13:07:14
We were 9th when Klopp took over and where did we finish? Not a massive improvement is it? It may be easier to build up some momentum without European football but like some have said there are still big weaknesses in our squad. LB is still a big worry. Midfield is still carries huge defensive deficiencies in my opinion. I'm not happy with our main midfield trio of Can, Milner and Hendo as all are too similar, great when we are on top but leave far too big a holes behind them. We definitely need width unless Marko has a change of heart. I don't think Ibe is good enough but Ojo should be given chances throughout the coming season. Stewart should be given chances to bed himself into the midfield trio in preseason in my opinion. I'm not convinced our forwards are top four quality. Ings, Origi have potential but also have big question marks along with Daniel's ability to stay fit for the full season but this isn't priority so should be given next season to prove themselves. We have to remember that despite Klopp being here for the past few months this is still his first proper window to put his stamp on things hus first preseason and his first full season. All issues aren't going to be sorted. Next season isn't going to be perfect.

8.) 11 Jun 2016 14:44:50
mr Dennis, i have to disagree with you on you mid table point, yes we finished 6th, but look at the number of games we played to the teams above us, we got to 2 finals yes i know what your going to say we never won any of them but to me watching them finals it showed we never had the experience of the teams we played against in them, then we had the injuries to key players and had to depend on youngsters, are you really saying Sturridge would not have scored more goals if he was not injured, then we had a new manager coming in because the old manger we had played players out of position, but to be honest i believe in the players and the manager and the team won't be a mid table team, Klopp is not a mid table manager he's a winner and he does improve players and has already bought some decent players as well, all i think we need now is a very good left back and a 20 goal a season striker.

9.) 11 Jun 2016 16:29:43
Mbrock do you not think if which it looks likely we'll play one up top that we have enough in sturridge origi and ings even without benteke that's plenty for 45 odd games imo unless you would be thinking of getting rid of one? Personally I would prefer a wider forward that can provide goals if we were going for a attacking player. I feel lalanna/ Milner are more replaceable in thxe team than sturridge / origi / ings.



19 May 2016 02:25:56
So the game just showed us a few things we already knew.
First is that our forwards are class and can be lethal when given any space, even if only one of them was performing.
Second is that a 63 game season takes it out of your players, they looked knackered in the second half and didn't have the fitness to cope with the higher tempo.
Third that Moreno, for all that he can be good going forward, is positionally suspect (3rd goal) and has a tendency to dive into challenges (1st goal)
Fourth, Milner isn't a centre mid. He did some great work when we were on top and he was in the attacking third but he goes missing when teams try to pass in our midfield, leaving can by himsellf. Furthermore he just is too easy to run past, their second goal should have been stopped by Milner.
Fifth, that Clyne needs to be a little more decisive. I thought he was good going forward and when isolated out wide with a winger. But he needs to learn when to just play a bit more like flanaghan and put his heart out there and just go for the ball. The third goal could have been stopped if he'd just committed to winning that ball first.
But there are positives from the game and the season. We made 2 cup finals and had some great performance. If things had gone a little more our way we would be talking about a season when we won 2 cups. Next season will be a good one for us, we have Klopp to attract players, a new TV rights deal to finance them and without European football we can focus on the tearing the Premier League to shreds. It's not the end of the world.

My card got declined but best of luck Ed.
Have you considered putting a general donations page connected with the site? just for optional donations. I know i use the site every day and would be happy to donate a few bucks a month to the site.


{Ed001's Note - thank you for trying. We have had those up in the past, but I am not a fan of them, usually we can get enough from advertisers to get by.}



09 Nov 2015 00:17:47
Hey, thought i would give my thoughts on the game, sorry for the essay. I'll start with overall impressions and then some analysis of the players.
Overall i thought we were the better team but Palace had a few players we just couldn't handle and we didn't have anyone who stepped up to drive us on. That, combined with a poor performance by 2 players, meant that we couldn't seal the win.
Onto the players.
Mignolet was the same as always, couldn't do anything with the goals but his distribution was poor and needlessly increased the pressure on our defence.
Clyne was okay, didn't do anything wrong but doesn't seem willing to take those risks in attack that could lead to something special.
Moreno was good but needs to make sure he looks up before he receives the ball as some of his crosses are just hit in hope. When he does look up can produce a good ball.
Skrtel was fine, dame problem with over-committing wide but overall pretty good.
Sakho and Lovren were both fine, if unspectacular.
lucas was good but seemed to struggle with the pace of the Palace attack.
Can showed immaturity with his positioning and decision making. This is common with young players but really cost us today.
Coutinho looked much better, like his old self. he is suffering from the lack of movement in front of him.
Lallana just takes too many touches but is good when he plays the ball quickly.
Ibe was fantastic but didn't have the movement to create the spaces in the back 4 for him to drive into.
Benteke was poor. He seems to not want to attack the space and give people an option for the cross. Instead he just waits for the ball which makes him easier to defend. his movement on the edge of the box is also poor. SHould have done much better with his 2 chances.
Firmino was good, his movement really helps create space and open the game. Should, in my view, be starting.
Hopefully we can do better next time, but we are only 2-3 players short of being a top class team.


1.) 09 Nov 2015 04:32:19
Benteke was not poor, you obesevational skills are poor in my opinion. he's still a New signing and was injured a week ago, hamstring. If he had scored that header to put us 2-1 up and we saw out the game you would probably be saying he was immense. Can was poor, as was Skrtel and Mignolet. The only mistake he made was not hitting that coutinho pass first time on his right foot instead of taking a touch then trying with his left. . maybe if we actually gave him good service he would find the space but how many of our players made runs beyond benteke to give him some space? He was upfront all alone. No?

{Ed001's Note - he did miss a couple of easy chances though, which suggests it was him not the service. He did have an off day, at least I hope it was an off day, where he couldn't have hit the side of a barn. Hopefully he will make it up for it over the next few games, as he has been fairly clinical so far for us.}

2.) 09 Nov 2015 04:41:06
Our midfielders always struggle against pace, Used to be Aston villa. Liverpool overlook Pace.

3.) 09 Nov 2015 06:06:03
I was just trying to point out my views on this game, I'm sure Benteke will improve and he was certainly better in previous appearances. But he wasnt hitting the target today, and he was a bit isolated. But that doesn't change that fact that he should have done better with his chances and gambled more with his movement. I know movement is not his strength, but when we are passing the ball around the edge of the box he is basically static. You are right, if he had scored i would be saying he had a good game, he's a striker that's his job. However i do agree we need firmino to start as his movement lifts the whole attack.

4.) 09 Nov 2015 06:30:03

There lies the problem. Klopp rates Lallana but you simply cannot play all 4 ( PC, Firmino, Ibe, Lallana ) behind Benteke. Someone has to be dropped.

5.) 09 Nov 2015 07:23:55
European Glory
I agree completely, its going to be even harder to decide when you also have Sturridge competing with Benteke. All we have to hope is that Klopp knows what he's doing and plays the right players for each game.

6.) 09 Nov 2015 19:20:08
Reshi, when will Studge compete with Benteke on a regular basis with him being injured anytime he virtually rolls out of bed?

7.) 09 Nov 2015 22:47:24
Redohio, god only knows but we can hope, right?

Isn't this all a bit ridiculous? We are going through a bit of a dip in form, caused by injuries to a whole bunch of key players. But, we've still played some of the best attacking football I've ever seen this season, we have one of the greatest managers in the world and a squad filled with players who are going to improve under his care.
Don't get me wrong our squad has weaknesses, as does klopp, but this is the best place we've been in since 2009/ 2010 so I sure am sure as hell not in the mood to complain

Ed001 what scouting sites would you recommend looking at? I've realized most sites can't analyse football at all so any recommendations that actually give insights into the game instead of repeating pointless nonsense would be fantastic :)


{Ed001's Note - I mean sites like Wyscout and Scout7 that you can use to look at the data yourself. Not so sure their in-house analysis is of any use. The articles I have read on those sites were of a poor standard, I have to be honest, but you can see all the footage and GPS data from matches on there. You do need a subscription (or be able to log in via a friend's comp who is a scout which is how I used to get to see it) to use the sites though. It would be good if they offered a free-to-use version with more limited datasets or a limit on the number of vids you can watch.}

Personally, and I am likely wrong about this, there are probably a few issues that lead to English clubs doing poorly in Europe. The first is, as Ed002 said, the poor ranking of English clubs, meaning that we tend to get drawn against bigger teams in the group stages and finish second a get one of the huge teams in the first round.
The second is that the Premier League is incredibly tough. The money available means that even lesser teams have players that can hurt the big teams and that smaller teams are less likely to just submit against bid teams. This makes every game harder than in other leagues, especially Spain and Italy, and giving teams less opportunity to rest.
We also have 6 big teams that reasonably challenge for the Champions League. This means all of those teams have to take all their games seriously otherwise they could lose out on the moneypot that is Europe, which leads into the above problem.
Finally English teams have a habit of not spending their money very well. Historically, they tended to not spend the money on managers/ coaches/ scouts but on waste it on players who didn't fit a system or team. Hopefully, with all the top managers now in England, we should see this problem come to an end.

Just for taking it to court, if it was a civil, not criminal, case then you would just need to prove that the action causing the injury was deliberate and that the nature of the contact and tackle was worse than what would reasonably be seen in these kind of games. Obviously an admission of deliberately doing the tackle helps with this. It's very hard to prove as tackles are common in games.
There have been a couple of cases in amateur league stuff in Australia, but they all involved fights rather than just bad tackles.
