Klopp sacking coaches left-right-center. Bilic is out.

Lol I'd of been surprised if he didn't get sacked today, had to happen, I'm surprised they didn't do it any earlier.


2.) 07 Nov 2017 02:42:50
Klopp is a specialist at this. He got LVG (Bayern), Bilic (WH) and Shakespear (LC) sacked. HOWEVER his crown jewel is still getting Mou sacked TWICE at Real Madrid and at Chelsea ( I know, I'm stretching it a bit) . It's what he does. Klopp is poison to managers on the brink.

Hello Ed001,
If you were in charge and constrained by the same set of players after the Spurs match, what changes would you make?

xpertoyin

{Ed001's Note - put Ward in goal and Gomez in the centre alongside Matip, with TAA at right back.}


1.) 26 Oct 2017 10:43:31
Because we are conceding a lot I would switch the formation while Mane is out, Pull Emre back alongside Henderson make them both Sit and protect the back four and put Pip up on the LW with Salah the otherside and Bobby at 10 and try something different uptop with Studge or Solanke or put woodburn in at 10 with bobby uptop.


2.) 26 Oct 2017 11:18:08
Spot on ed, it makes so much sense that we try Gomez at centre back, with a recognised rb and see what ward can do.


3.) 26 Oct 2017 11:22:17
I wouldn't put bobby up top he doesn't have 20+ goals a season in him i am not bobby bashing i like the lad but he is no striker i would adree with ed001 with gomez and taa and would like to give solanke a run with bobby behing him and pip have a free roaming mane salah on wings and make the back 4 stop bombing forward and can at the back of midfield we need to mix it up because what we are doing is not working that's just my opinion.


4.) 26 Oct 2017 11:35:41
That's the change's everyone want's to see Ed.


5.) 26 Oct 2017 12:02:58
FSG should hand Ed1 3 trial matchs (vs Huddersfield, WHU, Soton) .

{Ed001's Note - I think I might be a bit old now to play mate, though even with my dodgy knees I could cover the ground quicker than Matip 'chasing' back....}


6.) 26 Oct 2017 12:56:47
KLOPPERS
I totally agree with you and the tweeking in the system i think solanke gives you a different option up front. you can't play your way through every team you come up against and 2 wins in the last 10 games proves that if klopp thinks he can then he's either nieve or arrogant. he also needs to pick a back 4 and keeper and give them a run of games together instead of all this swapping and changing ward-tta-gomez-matip-moreno or Robertson its only my opinion.


7.) 26 Oct 2017 14:24:57
Hi Ed 1,

I agree 100% with the changes suggested above as do most fans!

But if it's so blatantly obvious to us, why can't Klopp see it?

And why don't red reporters at these press conferences ask these direct questions instead of skirting round the issues?

Klopp has to be pinned down on this as it's gone on too long.

{Ed001's Note - managers do this a lot, they opt for experience out of fear. As for reporters, I have no idea why reporting is so crap these days, but it is the norm these days to just report crap off InstaSnapFaceTwitBookErChatGram rather than bothering with actual news now, so I suppose what do we expect? People don't care about issues just gossip so that is they get given now.}


8.) 26 Oct 2017 15:01:40
Personally I'd love us to drop both Matip and Lovern, but we only have Gomez to come in so means Matip needs to stay in the set up. That gives TAA the right back spot. Moreno has done better but I think Robertson is a better option and should also slot in. I know that's a lot of defence changes but needs must and these guys need game time to gain the experience. I'd also be dropping Migs and brining in Ward, he has shown a calmness over Migs and Karius. I think Can could be used as a CDM in front to give more cover while this set up settles in. I do not see VVD as the answer and is very expensive but is an upgrade on our current players. Maybe the scouting net needs casting further afield to find someone.
We have a strong midfield set up and when Mane back we are full of options. I like Bobby and gives us a good amount of energy up front. I do however think we should be giving Solanke more time as he is a more out and out striker. I know both Woodburn and Brewster are young but they need to start getting first team experience around the U23 games to give them development and know that the club will use them. Yes they are young but so was Owen and Fowler when they came in, good enough then your old enough.

Just my 2 p worth,

Baz.


9.) 26 Oct 2017 17:30:27
I don't think we need two dcms out of three cms. I would play can as dcm. Week in week out. I would give gomes a shot at cb next to lovren. Matip mistakes were just as costly as lovren and matip wasn't pushed in the back when he messed up with the header. Unlike lovren who was. I would worry for Joe though as he is quite xmall and inexperienced and if he made loads of mistakes it could really harm his Liverpool career. On the other hand it could ignite it.

I don't think we have a problem up top. We scored eight goals last week. I love the mix and match style of the false nine and kind of false wingers, I call em that as they are goal scorers reall, they don't supply endless crosses to the middle and are our main goal threat.

I think we have the players to change to the good old fashioned 442 when we need to with dom so lane a great option and great target for the wingers midfielders to find.

It's all pretty academic in January we need to sign a cb. Then I'm more than happy to carry on as we are. Not sitting I'm mid table, I mean playing 433.

{Ed025's Note - i still think you need a top striker superred, i know you scored 8 last week but 7 of those were against a side that make accrington look like real madrid mate..


10.) 26 Oct 2017 18:31:39
I didn't mean you play Ed1. Just show Klopp how to utilize current squad.

{Ed001's Note - damn, I was just visualising myself running out, touching the sign and banging in a late winner in the derby then....}


11.) 26 Oct 2017 18:22:18
Being very honest and as much as I know about Klopp, He would pick Klavan ahead of Gomez at the back! Gomez might continue to to play at the RB which is why we kept him instead of loaning him out!
He might drop Migs for the time being but that’s it! Migs is still the first choice at the club while Karius is the choice in CL games.


12.) 27 Oct 2017 00:17:06
I hope your proved wrong Harry mate and I'm sure you hope your proved wrong, but I understand what your saying.


13.) 27 Oct 2017 10:58:57
Thanks Ed001, for your response. I don't see Solanke in your line-up are you of the same mind as Klopp, in that he is behind Sturridge in the peeking order or would you give him a run of games?

{Ed001's Note - I just fail to see the need to change the attack, we are not struggling to score goals. I would use Solanke as the first man off the bench though, ahead of Sturridge right now, who is struggling badly.}

Hello Eds,
Watching the build up to Dele Alli's goal, i could not help but notice the fact that the whole defensive line acted like robots, followed the ball, while Dele simply positioned himself to receive the second ball. Almost as if the person who took the free-kick had predicted exactly how we would defend the ball.

xpertoyin

{Ed001's Note - they probably did, as most teams that work on set pieces have at least one person who studies the opposition in advance to see how they set up and defend set pieces. Then they will look for ways to exploit any gaps. Sam Allardyce used to base large parts of his game around little things like that. Attention to details like that is why he was able to get disproportionate success with the teams he managed.}


1.) 23 Oct 2017 09:42:13
Would have been avoided if Mignolet had shouted to Matip to leave it.


2.) 23 Oct 2017 09:46:55
Allardyce in Ed001? 🤔😉.

{Ed001's Note - hahahaha.}


3.) 23 Oct 2017 10:16:24
It gets me that we always have so many players in the box for set pieces. It doesn't excuse migs but if we had a few attackers spread up the pitch to the halfway line the attacking team wouldn't be able to commit so many numbers. We might be able to properly zonal mark that way and with our pace- we could easily turn dangerous defensive positions into precarious attacks for our opponents.

{Ed001's Note - agreed mate, I hate seeing teams bringing every player back to defend corners and free kicks. One man up forces the attacking team to leave 2 back to cover him.}


4.) 23 Oct 2017 10:14:56
Thanks Ed001, but another thing do we actually have a defensive coach? And what exactly do you think is Lovren's problem? Or are we just expecting more than he is capable of delivering?

{Ed001's Note - we have coaches who work on the defensive side of the game, but I don't believe we have a coach purely for defending. If that makes sense. I am not sure I worded that well.

As for Lovren, his head is clearly not in it. He has always struggled a bit to keep focused on football, this season it is clear his head is elsewhere. Maybe related to the robbery he has talked about? Maybe it is bothering him still, I have no idea.}


5.) 23 Oct 2017 10:29:41
Validation from ed1. Best day ever! 😆.

{Ed001's Note - I fear for you if this is your best day!! I will get Ed025 to send you a pic of himself in his speedos tomorrow to make it an even better day....}


6.) 23 Oct 2017 10:39:29
I agree aoe, but for Spurs 3rd goal they only had 2 players in our box and out of our 10 we managed to mark none of them 😂.


7.) 23 Oct 2017 10:46:44
Regarding Lovern. I feel for the guy and what he has been going through in his personal life for the last year. It's been reported in the press that the guy his wife had an affair with a year ago is a Croatian gangster, they then threaten to kidnap his kids unless he paid them millions and the robbery this Summer (where he and his family were gassed) was part of these threats. Arrests have been made in Croatia.
Maybe Klopp is trying to help him through this.


8.) 23 Oct 2017 10:50:23
I wish to swiftly withdraw my previous statement.

{Ed025's Note - most women would give their right arm for one aoe..


9.) 23 Oct 2017 10:52:45
Yep bit of a shambles alright mk.


10.) 23 Oct 2017 11:06:29
Btw. I fully expect Lovern to be dropped now. Just giving background I've read as to explain why his head/ confidence could be all over the place.


11.) 23 Oct 2017 12:02:52
Ed001 we had a disagreement on defenders recently .
Do you still think that looking elsewhere other than VVD is unrealistic . ? The CB we have are not the level we need but I don’t believe that they are as bad as we are seeing at the minute . Surely as previously stated there is a coaching/ tachctical/ organisation issue . Do you think Klopp and Liverpool would benefit from a proven premier league Defensive coach being brought in . Especially as the quality of defenders to purchase are not currently there .

{Ed001's Note - what proven Premier League defensive coach are you referring to? Does such a thing even exist?

The defenders are playing badly, there is an issue with the style of play being open, but good defenders can deal with that. Fergie at United used to leave his centre backs one on one with opposition attackers and their defensive record was excellent because they were good enough defenders and coped with it. Ours are so ridiculously inconsistent and their mentality is a problem as they fall apart under pressure, which is never a good sign.

Sadly I just don't see us getting any better defenders until we stop using stats to find them. Stats are a useful tool but they can't show you the basics of defending, even the guy who ran Midtylland's recruitment, a club that relied on stats as the owner also owned a statistics company (and Brentford), admitted that the stats do not work for recruiting defenders and you have to go watch them play. That is even more of a problem as our scouts clearly have not got a clue when it comes to finding defenders!}


12.) 23 Oct 2017 12:54:19
Thanks Ed’s nice insight . I was referring to a coach in the Ilk of Mike Phelan . J.

{Ed001's Note - ah got you. I thought you meant someone who worked only with defenders. I am not sure having someone like Phelan involved would do anything other than confuse the players to be honest. It would need to be someone who understands the Klopp tactical plan and coach the defenders how to work within it.

Mind I do think we need someone to be telling these players how to do the basics. Don't try and dribble the ball on the edge of your own box. Do not head it back across goal. Do not play offside when the midfield is not applying pressure on the ball. Always be aware of where your partner in the backline is, you should be checking on his position every few seconds to make sure you are in tandem, when they are not in your peripheral vision. Always look to be goalside of an attacker before making a challenge. When a ball is delivered into the box attack it. Sprint first for a loose ball then slow down when you are sure no one is chasing you, rather than job towards and give an opponent hope of beating you to it. Try not to leave space in behind a press for an out ball etc etc. Those are all basic things that a professional player should know by the time they turn pro.}

More and more I am seeing what Ed002 saw wrong with Klopp, might be due to badluck but it is showing now.

Good for you, personally I prefer to think for myself.


2.) 21 Sep 2017 20:15:24
I honestly doubt the thinking part of your statement.


3.) 21 Sep 2017 20:36:10
agreed smeg. too many sheep that don't think for themselves here :)


4.) 21 Sep 2017 20:47:20
What a ridiculous comment about a manager who somehow against all odds and the spending might of Bayern won not just one but two titles and reached a champions league final.

If you want football to be a business then we are behind four other clubs in the premier league and accept our place.

If like me you want to be entertained then carry on klopp!


5.) 21 Sep 2017 20:47:52
Yeah but the point ed002 made about the smiling clown act can only work for so wrong is starting to come true.


6.) 21 Sep 2017 23:29:40
Ed02 gave an opinion. That's all. The only way one can believe it is to believe him and call him the smiling clown, which is just pathetic and childish. As Smeg said, I have a brain and two eyes and can think for myself instead of parroting someone else's opinion.

Classic cm0102 wib wob.


4.) 09 Sep 2017 11:43:15
Our new left back isn't even on the bench?
I thought he was excellent last time out.
Today will test if Moreno has matured, City have invested heavily in their wide areas.

And he was first choice. Seems almost like sabotage on klopp's part to the lad's career or at least poor man-management. You request that teams give your loans amble playing time, and Huddersfield who are willing to do so at the Premier league not doubt are not considered.

Does it matter who he replaces? If he is Klopp's first choice, then he knows how to use him.

Hello Eds
Thanks for all the ways you have been engaging us, with banter, answers to questions and general information.
Please explain how transfers work. Not as a whole but as pertaining to getting one's target. You mentioned that once VVD is placed on sale, the interests from Arsenal and Chelsea are still on the table. How would this affect us getting our man seeing he wants us and we are willing to pay the asking price. When would a bidding war come into play?
Apologies for asking so many questions.

xpertoyin

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool formally withdrew their interest in the player. If they were to change their minds they could approach Southampton, who have the stance thet they do not wish to sell - although the player's position is I would think untenable now.}

Sturridge no longer has the legs to play 90 minutes against a Man City, maybe a ManU or Tony Pulis team, but not ManCity.
