Hi Ed, does Ings got Southampton move?

stg

{Ed002's Note - On loan.}


1.) 09 Aug 2018 17:53:00
Cheers Ed.


2.) 09 Aug 2018 19:02:44
Is there on option or obligation to buy Ed?

{Ed002's Note - That won't be known before tomorrow or perhaps Monday.}

Can Ed002 shed some lights on fekir deal? If you felt that it will create hate then we understand it completely.

stg

{Ed002's Note - This is the social media generation we are dealing with. It will get done when it is all concluded. If it is not all concluded it won't get done. I understand that Liverpool fans have constantly trolled the club's social media and that is really unacceptable - and I imagine Fekir's social media accounts will be taking a bashing now as well. My understanding last night was that the financial aspects were not finalised, and I said that lhere - I didn't keep it away from you all - that was how it was. I am not aware that anything has changed. It will continue to be work in progress. If Liverpool remain keen, then there is plenty of time to sort something out. If there is interest from elsewhere that matches the desires of the player and the club, then that is possible with plenty of the summer left. The trouble the Liverpool fans, seemingly uniquely, have is they believe the fat kid from Bolton and they get the Kleenex out and get their rocks off as soon as he says "done deal". The situation is very, very simple and no more or less than has been explained. There are no minute by minute updates to be had, although you can get those on Twitter or whatever.}


1.) 09 Jun 2018 20:16:21
Ed2 was correct once again!


2.) 09 Jun 2018 20:15:26
😂😂😂😂
****ing loved your reply ed002. You are absolutely correct.


3.) 09 Jun 2018 20:19:45
Thanks ed002 for again clarifying the situation. I personally think this is lyon just trying to get more money out of us.
And if we can't get it done we will move on.

{Ed002's Note - Aulas will do the best that he can for Lyon - and frankly there is nothing wrong with that. You can build relationships with him and he will do what he sees as fair. If you are an English side he will want some of those English shillings you have so many of. If you screw him around you get the Gallic shrug - he is in a controlling position, why should he give you the bargain. How would Liverpool react to a £68.6M offer for Salah from Real Madrid - "well he hobbles a bit and he keeps holding his shoulder, and he whimpers like a pre-pubescent schoolgirl a lot, so we need a cheap deal".}


4.) 09 Jun 2018 20:22:31
With you all the way there ed 02 us Liverpool fans get way too invested an carried away with media I swear I don't believe anything til they wearing the jersey.

{Ed002's Note - Jersey? Cow or potato?}


5.) 09 Jun 2018 20:25:57
Thank you Ed002, appreciate the info. We are all very fortunate to have you and the other Eds providing us with such information.


6.) 09 Jun 2018 20:29:55
You’re right Ed. Things will happen if and when they happen.


7.) 09 Jun 2018 20:30:41
There you are folks. Ed002 has given us the info. Forget Twitter, Facebook and Graham Kelly ( who everyone seems to bow down to ) .


8.) 09 Jun 2018 20:31:06
Thanks Ed002 as usual the voice of reason.


9.) 09 Jun 2018 20:32:46
Just out of curiosity ed02, do you not in fact find it strange that Lyon would be so public about this/ their business? Why feel the need to issue a statement? They never announced that they were negotiating with LFC, so is it necessary to communicate this "ending of talks" publicly?
Liverpool haven't said anything, as well they shouldn't.
Kinda weird that by Lyon.

{Ed002's Note - Aulas has always been keen to say things to the press, and pretty much anyone who will listen. Who would have thought that the American President would be using Twitter to blurt out nonsense? I haven't seen him for perhaps three years but I would think he would love Twitter."


10.) 09 Jun 2018 20:40:19
sensible, rational reply ed02. It seems as though both parties are close to an agreement. Why these fans need to go on social media and get abusive over a transfer deal is beyond me. I have never been on twitter, clearly I am missing nothing.
I will just relax with a nice cool beer and see what happens. Hardly a life or death situation.

Thanks for the update ED02.


11.) 09 Jun 2018 21:01:04
Has anything happened since your reply ED?

Kidding 😁.


12.) 09 Jun 2018 20:44:52
I'm with you there Ed. If I was in Aulas position I'd be holding out trying to get the most I could, any businessman would/ should, I'd hope we'd be the same, can't blame the man for that. If we want the player enough we'll pay what they want. If not, we move on and they keep their player, it's as simple as it gets imo.

{Ed002's Note - It woas never going to be easy - and this has always been the case with OL.}


13.) 09 Jun 2018 20:47:05
Hahahaha the Liverpool football top sorry, I more of a Irish potatoe kind of guy an more partial too Devonshire cream.

{Ed002's Note - Do me a favour, Google Dan Quail and potatoe please. There will I am sure be a video.}


14.) 09 Jun 2018 20:50:15
What a legend Ed002 is! I'm just so wowed by your style! Take a bow, boss! We're really lucky to have you tell us as it always is!


15.) 09 Jun 2018 20:51:29
Sorry ed002, didn't mean to word it like i was whinging about it. Any selling club would want the best deal, if we are willing to pay great. If not we move on.


16.) 09 Jun 2018 21:02:37
Thank you very much for all the information you’ve given ed2. Let’s hope it eases the flow of desperate posts you are receiving. Obviously hope it happens. Would be a wonderful time for the club to do the deal right instead of messing around another club.


17.) 09 Jun 2018 21:10:45
So many people on here loosing their minds over a player they have never seen play or even heard of until recently lol.


18.) 09 Jun 2018 20:49:50
Cheers for your thoughts ed. Spot on as usual mate. Makes it sound very open still its just Aulas stating its over sounds quite final to us. Pinch of salt then?


19.) 09 Jun 2018 21:28:53
Mother Fekir, atleast the boxing on to cheer me up! Could see this coming, seemed to taking a long time and kind of strange the noise from their predefined, hopefully we continue to pursue the player and up the offer a bit YNWA.


20.) 09 Jun 2018 22:00:10
Ed, you are sparkys Owner aren't you, he speaks just like you ;)

{Ed002's Note - I taught him English.}


21.) 09 Jun 2018 22:01:29
Sky news just reported that fekir deal is now off.


22.) 09 Jun 2018 22:02:04
Dan Quayle potato, I remember that Ed002. How did he ever make it in politics? How did he ever leave the house unaided?


23.) 09 Jun 2018 23:47:49
Could anyone please clarify who ed02 means when he refers to a fat guy from bolton?
Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - “The Firm” on Twitter who I am repeatedly told by Liverpool fans is the only source who is ever correct. #WonderDogSparky, a little sweetie, has been banned by him for not giving him the personal gratification that many do. Sparky will be recruiting supports for his #The Farm (Fat Kid From Bolton) vs #WonderDogSparky (Artist, Racing Driver, Diplomat, Psychedelic Warlord and Great Lover) campaign.}


24.) 10 Jun 2018 00:13:20
The firm is a joke and always has been. Not looked at it for a while and don't plan on doing so anytime soon. In the Eds I trust.

I kind of don't want to look at #WonderDogSparky anymore though either. The Mrs saw the picture of him sat behind that chair, she didn't care about poor old bugger sparky, she was more bothered about the chair and wants one like that! Please no nice furniture in the future pics sparky, I'll end up bankrupt.


25.) 10 Jun 2018 01:51:37
Ed002 I think Salah should be worth twice the money for holding his shoulder, the wobbling, the dribbling and nutmegs and for scoring 40+ goals. Tell that to RM will you?!?

Thank you for putting the Fekir hysteria to rest. for now.

{Ed002's Note - And the crying must get the sympathy vote as well.}


26.) 09 Jun 2018 22:56:57
Hi Eds! Will Liverpool wait till the world cup ends and keep trying for Fekir, or will they start looking for alternative options? Thanks in advance!


27.) 10 Jun 2018 05:26:35
Hi Eds! From my own opinion, i think Liverpool fans get overhyped of this deal mainly because the way how Fabinho deal works out and the news whereby Fekir has passed his medical. After reading your view on this potential deal, I would like to ask whether undergoing medical before reaching an agreement between the two clubs is a way of how a potential transfer will go through?

{Ed001's Note - every deal is different.}


28.) 10 Jun 2018 08:11:08
Regarding this potential Fekir deal- Fekir passed his medical before agreement was reached and Ed0002 said financial aspects were not finalised. Therefore, I would like to ask Fekir passed his medical beforehand foe the sake of the upcoming World Cup, or it is due to news on the web where he undergo the medical after an agreement in an initial fee, just that Liverpool try to negotiate for a lower fee in the end?

{Ed001's Note - because of the World Cup a lot of stuff was done in advance so that he could just concentrate on playing for his country.}


29.) 10 Jun 2018 08:40:22
If an agreement was reached during the World Cup period, can both the clubs announced the deal? Due to medical was passed and interviews (leaked) was done beforehand.

{Ed001's Note - of course, that was the whole point of getting everything ready. Now he can just leave it all in the hands of his agents. I wouldn't hold my breath though. It could be done in seconds, linger on for months or never happen at all. May as well just relax and forget about it and hope for a pleasant surprise later.}


30.) 10 Jun 2018 09:07:21
Big thanks ED001 for your answer.
This has helps me clear up rumors floating on the web regarding this deal:
1)Fekir failed his medical
2)Initial fee was agreed and Fekir passed his medical, talks broken down as Liverpool try to lower the fee due to past injury concern.


31.) 10 Jun 2018 09:45:27
Eds if the fekir deal can't be concluded who, with your knowledge, would you say we'd try for?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know.}


32.) 10 Jun 2018 10:32:00
Rush to get everything sorted before the WC has backfired.

From a purely business perspective, this is not the way to do 60 million pound deals, anyway. Due diligence are the key words.

If Aulas wants to be difficult, he will be difficult. The player is contracted to Lyon - they hold the cards.

Important now for the club to act professionally. We have had enough problems with previous transfer fiascos (Southampton and Fulham come to mind) .

And let's hope the LFC trolls on twitter don't now go on to discredit the club, the way they have done in the past in their behavior the owner and his wife.


33.) 10 Jun 2018 07:04:19
Ed002 people ask if your Male or female.
I ask are you really a talking labradoodle?


34.) 10 Jun 2018 04:48:06
Thanks Ed002. So all these deals are nonsense. Now I can have good and calm Sunday.


35.) 10 Jun 2018 11:38:19
Only been on twitter once found the darwin awards they are pretty good.


36.) 10 Jun 2018 19:05:05
aussieMARK: WDS is the talking Labradoodle, Ed002 is a gentleman rodeo clown.

Hi ed01, I know everyone going gaga about Kent. I am not surprised either with his performance though. But what is the plan for Wilson? . Now it seems he is down the ladder behind Ojo and Kent.

stg

{Ed001's Note - Ojo is likely to leave, either on loan or permanent, Wilson the same as things stand.}


1.) 02 Aug 2017 12:51:54
Ed01, what is the plan with Kent then? has he played himself into the first team plans?

{Ed001's Note - he has put himself in with a shot, yes.}


2.) 02 Aug 2017 16:57:48
I hope he has. Definitely been a good player during pre season, albeit it is preseason but I think he could fill in well when mane or Salah are missing.


3.) 02 Aug 2017 17:34:18
Not sure if Kent can play in different positions as it is too early but for some reason he resembles a junior Milner type player when he first came on the scene with Toons.

Let us see how he goes.

Cheers.


4.) 02 Aug 2017 18:31:27
He's done well but very young - I really hope we loan Ojo and Wilson to strong championship clubs, or if we sell we do so with a buyback clause. I feel we might be letting them go too early if we sell outright. Most important though is game time and ensuring they develop rather than stagnate in u23s.

I can see Woodburn being a Coutinho/ Llalana type player for us in the future and Ojo being a Mane type player.


5.) 03 Aug 2017 17:41:39
Kent was class. Sometime it's the youth who have the bottle to take on players and he had me out of my seat. Hope he gets a chance other than league cup. If he keeps showing that hunger I think he will go far. We have some excellent young players on the edge of first team now. Very exciting.


 

 

27 Aug 2013 12:43:32
Ed, Is there anything new with us or other teams about Lamella. Last I heard that we made a general enquiry about him from you(Ed 02). Is there anything to add?
ynwa
P.S Have a happy journey ed . I think we will miss you for 2 days. This is the time we need you more. {Ed002's Note - Lamela will almost certainly complete a move to Spurs, subject to a work permit being granted, in the next couple of days.}

stg

1.) Oh the joy of a Liverpool fan seeing other clubs strengthen their teams significantly whilst we do nothing and get linked to players not wanted by their clubs.

Hi Ed002, can you give us a hint to decode the Sparky's latest tweet.

stg

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what he has said but normally they are clear to understand.}


1.) 13 Oct 2018 19:39:43
They’re about as clear as a woman’s mind Ed.


2.) 13 Oct 2018 22:16:11
Did you find your Val Doonigan record Benny?


 

 

09 Oct 2018 03:54:45
Did I miss your match review Ed001?

stg

{Ed001's Note - no mate, I have a bad back and just struggle to sit up for long enough to type much. I am trying to get it done but it is taking a longgggg time.}


1.) 09 Oct 2018 06:15:09
Horrible anything like that Ed, hope you get better soon mate.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate. I have no idea what I did, just woke up and couldn't get up, had to roll out of bed. Odd.}-


2.) 09 Oct 2018 06:50:01
Sorry to hear that Ed! Hope you on the mend and back up in your feet in no time mate!

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate.}


3.) 09 Oct 2018 06:54:40
It is bloody odd that Ed mate. It's probably down to old age though, what with you being 444 years old and all ;) .

{Ed001's Note - is this the right time to remind you that I am younger than you? Just wondering....}


4.) 09 Oct 2018 07:14:23
Hahaha! about right Ed lol. Only at the moment though mate, I'm counting backwards, I'll soon be 21 again ;) . in a few decades!

{Ed001's Note - *centuries


5.) 09 Oct 2018 10:29:56
Lol Ed you bugger hahahaha! get well soon mate :) .

{Ed001's Note - *innocent look*


6.) 09 Oct 2018 10:39:42
Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well Ed. Hope you get better soon.

{Ed001's Note - I am sure it will be gone soon. I hope anyway.}


7.) 09 Oct 2018 11:02:38
About as innocent as a fart in a spacesuit mate lol. Have you been to the doctor to get it checked out? Hopefully its something little like a trapped nerve or something like that.

{Ed001's Note - I will be ok mate.}


8.) 09 Oct 2018 12:21:44
Get well Ed.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate.}


9.) 09 Oct 2018 12:50:28
Sounds like you need a DSE assessment Ed 😉 happy to help if needed.

{Ed001's Note - I have had a dodgy back since school mate, it just flares up every so often after I mashed it there. Not usually as bad as this like but it happens.}


10.) 09 Oct 2018 13:34:12
I don't know why but when you said "had to roll out of bed" I had a flash of rowan Atkinson. Sounds serious though, tell a doc ed01 mate.


11.) 09 Oct 2018 15:41:36
Feel better ed, i never rated it but out of desperation I tried yoga and it was excellent for my dodgy back as well. Also- google to see have you got your chair set up correctly for sitting for hours. I raised my monitor to direct eye line and it worked a treat.


 

 

30 Sep 2018 15:40:06
Ed001 this is on Hendo. From my point of view he had very average game and Klopp is right to sub him off in second half.
My question is I know he can do some very good diagonal pass. But he doesn't always look for forward pass. Its very rare.
Another thing I noticed is whenever he gets the ball our front three doesn't move looking for the pass. Is his role very limited or he doesn't fancy those things anymore?

stg

{Ed001's Note - he is always looking for the forward pass, just watch him, his head is constantly on a swivel looking around ready for when he gets the ball. The problem is he very rarely gets the movement because the ball is usually given to him at a time when a break has gone flat and so everything is resetting and there are no options for him to pick out. If you watch him, those forward balls tend to come when he has broken up play and can spring a break as the movement is there.}


1.) 30 Sep 2018 16:45:04
Ok Ed001. Next time I will look for those details too.

{Ed001's Note - I think of all of our players, he is the one who looks around him the most. It is almost constant glances left, right, and behind, just checking positioning etc, which is why he can ping those first time balls when the chance arises.}


2.) 30 Sep 2018 18:21:16
Van Dijk is constantly telling him to move position so he’s actually in a passing lane he often blocks passing lanes out from the back in fact! I wouldn’t say the stuff about him always passing sideways and backwards is true, it’s not but he definitely doesn’t get himself into the right positions to receive the ball and definitely blocks passes to team mates by his own positioning being wrong. He’s a good player and defensively we miss him when he’s not there but we are more fluent without him and keita made a massive difference just by actually running at players and committing them against Chelsea.


3.) 30 Sep 2018 19:06:57
I'm glad to read this Ed. I was going to post something this morning about our midfied being a little predictable at times and a little to conservative, but after reading your comments I need to watch a little closer.

{Ed001's Note - the problem with Hendo, Milner and Gini is they do not run with the ball enough, so it becomes same, same, when we have it. Keita changes that up.}


4.) 30 Sep 2018 22:34:58
Which is why we signed Keita. But he cannot run from the flanks. Play him centrally and enjoy his geniuses!


5.) 30 Sep 2018 22:36:52
I think the Ox will remedy this, we really do have a really good team now. Virgil is the key for me, keep him fit and we will be in the mix to win the prem.


6.) 30 Sep 2018 22:22:51
Ed, Hendo does have his head on a swivel a lot BUT I did not know that he can't often play the forward pass (he played the most forward passes in the PL last season at some point, I think) cos the counter has gone flat at that time. I do agree with you that Milner, Wiji and Hendo are too similar to play together. Now, do you think at least at the start, that Klopp picked them for last night in a bid to contain Chelsea in midfield, press them and launch attacks as soon as the ball is won or was it something else? Cheers, mate!


 

 

20 Sep 2018 12:54:45
Ed001 regd the GK coaching and all, most of them mention that Reina started to make errors with the change in GK coach. Is it possible for good experienced GK to have drop in quality due to bad coaching (methods)? . We have seen some real examples. How could someone who was trained from small age all of sudden to look like mug within a year?

stg

{Ed001's Note - a coach can make all the difference. A keeper could lose their sharpness, start second guessing themselves and then that can destroy their confidence.}


1.) 20 Sep 2018 13:15:09
Thanks ed.

{Ed001's Note - a great coach inspires a player to work harder for themselves. A good coach gets a player to work for them. A poor coach will make a player lose interest.}


2.) 20 Sep 2018 17:28:09
You mean Good, bad and ugly. ;)

{Ed001's Note - I wasn't going to bring Ed002, Ed025 and Ed0333 into it mate.}


3.) 20 Sep 2018 18:42:19
That's brilliant.

{Ed001's Note - why thank you.}


4.) 20 Sep 2018 21:33:03
Remember when George Costanza gave batting advice to the Yankees?

{Ed001's Note - no idea who either of those are....}


 

 

19 Sep 2018 13:12:06
So being scout ed001, how will be the conversation with the coach. Last year Klopp told scouts convinced him to buy Salah. Is all the managers take words from scouts or some really dickheads? . And secondly how many players you suggested to sign for a club? . Which player you suggested is really hit and the one you suggested wasn't signed but went on and had great career? . Did you worked for Liverpool?

stg

{Ed001's Note - I am not a scout, I was given the opportunity to do it but turned it down.}


1.) 19 Sep 2018 13:58:01
What's the purpose of those questions Stg? You're posting because Ed001 disagreed with you on your comment about Silva? Get a life, man. (I happen to like Thiago Silva, but I agree with Ed001 in that he is no longer as good as he used to be. The point is we all have our opinions, Eds and posters, and there's no need for underhanded snide remarks. Point your frustrations, in life, elsewhere) .


2.) 19 Sep 2018 14:14:38
There is no dig man. If someone opinion is different to me why should I get frustrated. After all this site is to interact and have some insight knowledge right? . I just want to know how scouts interacts with coach. They need to convince the manager right if they need to sell a player they are scouting? . I meant no harm. I asked his opinion on Silva and he has different perception. So I didn't get interact further with him as it went little bit ugly. The way I see a match started to differ after visiting this page. There is nothing wrong in asking questions so I can gain something. If you started to connect all the dots then you will be in wrong end.
It's nothing wrong in asking insights to ed001 (regd players) or ed002 (regd transfers and finances) if you want to gain something.
My posts are never to be intended to harm anyone.
And one thing for sure I will bug Ed001 regd players and on matches about his perception so I can know how to intercept a match.


3.) 19 Sep 2018 14:45:33
Allright, stg. Perhaps I read too much into it. You're right about the site being a place for exchange of opinions and a lot of learning (for most of us) .


4.) 19 Sep 2018 14:57:11
Its ok bro. Ed001 if you want to, my question is I thought Silva involved in all headers and tackles or I missed something about his position? . My focus solely on our players missing opponents. This is again if you want to.

{Ed001's Note - he was caught out on every chance we created. The problem was he was getting mixed up with Marquinhos and not getting out to close down, when the ball broke to the wide forwards, the system they played was that Marquinhos would drop in allowing the centre backs to close down Salah and Mane. Neither centre back was doing it, nor were they just getting back and trying to create a solid block. They were all over the place, with no idea whether to drop or hold or push out. That is on Silva because he is the captain and leader at the back who should be in charge of that. He just ran hither and thither, without being actually decisive and organising the backline.

That is also partly the fault of Areola, but he is not particularly skilled at organising the defence and also partly Tuchel as manager should have spoken to them and organised them better. However, on-pitch Silva is meant to be the man who does that and he let them down last night. At one time he looked fantastic, but he has faded in recent years, imo down to playing in a weak French league and having it far too easy.

There are times when he shows good positional sense and heads a ball away or makes a tackle, but they are usually following a period of play which could have been broken up much earlier if he just organised his defence better. They were panicked last night at times and lost their shape which allowed us gaps to exploit.}


5.) 19 Sep 2018 15:18:53
Ok thanks ed001. Great.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}


6.) 19 Sep 2018 15:50:08
Ed, how are you able to perceive the matches in such detail? Are there specific tactics and gameplans that you have seen before, elements of which you easily recognize when you see them being attempted by a team?
Many fans like to think they know football tactics - they are some of biggest talking points that bring fans together thankfully - but very few would be able to notice and comprehend what you have just provided.

{Ed001's Note - it is just the way my mind works, it is why I used to get in trouble in school for not showing working out in maths. I didn't work out the answer I just looked and saw the answer. When I look at things I see lots of things some people miss.

I am told it is possible to learn to analyse it by just practice - but the key thing is that you need to understand what you are looking at before you can analyse it and see what is going on. I mean even a basic 4-4-2 would be impossible to spot if you didn't know what it was, but when you do know you can see it in action by the way players line up on the pitch.

The biggest difference is probably the fact that I spend 16 hours or so a day either watching or reading about football due to these sites. Large parts are editing, but most of it is just trying to learn more about the game. If you can get access to a scouting database, such as scout7, wyscout or instat, you can get to watch it all from a different angle. If you look at a game on there you have just watched, you can put the two images together in your head and see how it looked when you watched it live and what was going on. Do that enough and I am sure you would see other things in the games that you had missed in the past.}

Thank you, kindly, Ed. It is hugely appreciated.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate. The other thing is to talk to coaches and go along and observe coaching sessions, especially when they do drills on shape and defence against attack. You can see it more easily in the small sided practice sessions and then spot it later in full games.}

Ed001, by reading this comment I realize that it would be a fantastic read to more often read what you think of our opposition, just like here.

I mean, I often get caught ball watching and from a Liverpool perspective. I appreciate following Firmino's off-the-ball movements as well, but watching and analyzing what, for example, Thiago Silvia does off the ball, well, right now I don't, and I don't have a clue.

But, with more insight to that, the overall understanding of the game would of course increase.

However, I realize the amount of work involved in this, and I am not a spoiled brat to suggest such a thing. I should probably watch each game more than once, rather than trying to piggyback on your great knowledge. (Or perhaps just watch the game and hopefully have a good time. )

{Ed001's Note - it's ok mate, someone else had asked if I would write something about the kind of things to look for when watching games, tactical things, movement etc. Initially I was thinking of it was one article, but I realised when I tried to write it a couple of weeks ago that there was far too much to cover in one article so I was intending to do something in a series of articles.

However talking today I think it might be easier to understand if I just did an analyse of each game we play, separate to the review, to pick out these kind of things. If no other reason than a chance to point out just what Henderson does for those (like Ed025) who think all he does is stand around waving his arms and passing sideways and backwards.

Rather than just picking out things on a player profile, pointing out how it affects the team in a match can highlight things more. I mean saying, for example, Harry Maguire has a tendency to position himself far to the left side of the pitch means little on its own. When you put that together with how it interacts with the defence and midfield around him, leaving a large gap between himself and Wes Morgan for opponents to run through, you can start to see the red card for Morgan was only a matter of time, as he is being exposed.

It is just trying to figure out how to put it together in the form of an article that makes it easy to understand and is entertaining to read that is the difficult bit now. I don't want to dumb it down as most people are smart enough to understand, but to keep it interesting is the difficult bit! I have read enough tactical books and listened to enough coaches give talks about tactics to know it can be very dreary if you are not careful!}

Gotta be fair though ed.

With a system like that, no cover, 4 players just sitting on there arses up top, poor players around, it's hard to show all ypur quality.

What about how do you think he would be next to vvd right now.

1. Don't want him. 2. Love Gomez.

Just a general better system for the guy what level could he reach

Don't forget we signed Alison who had a mare against us, because we can't really judge players against us because we really are that horrible to them 🤣 we could make a holy show out of any player if we wanted.

{Ed001's Note - do you mean Thiago Silva? He is 33 mate, on the decline and has been for a while. When he signed for PSG he was top class and I would have loved him, but he has lost his edge since being there. In the last couple of seasons poor coaching has seen him look finished at top level to be honest. I think he is just on the way down and he has made his money and lost the hunger.}

I don't claim to know football tactics inside and out. But I would get in trouble at school for not showing my working out in maths. I did it in my head. It is the ability to think in an abstract way and that must help when weighing up two teams tactics.

Thanks Ed001, you're an absolute peach!

{Ed001's Note - glad to help mate, always nice to have something new to think about.}

On positive note, if PSG and Red is thrown out, then we will have less fixtures to play and we will be qualified to next round.
On sad note, I don't think the investigation will finish before league stages.

Thanks for late review Ed001. With this boring International brk back on. At least now I have something to read and ponder about this weekend. I think you should do late match reviews for the last match before brk. It will be great.

{Ed001's Note - that's not a bad idea actually. Gives me something to do too.}

For Good, I would say Lovern/ Hendo/ Lucas. They developed infront of us. They are scrutinized every game yet they gave all. There are people, almost everyone, ready to jump on their back at every given chance yet they showed fight. They are handling different type of pressure but they didn't let us down as often as people suggest

On poor, Ibe/ Ojo/ Suso (In our shirts) . I really thought they will step up and be some player for a us. Even though they will be a football player but not in our jersey.
