{Ed's Note - Ed001 has posted a new article entitled, Review Of The Day 22nd January 2020

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jan 2020 09:20:37
How's Jack Robinson been getting on Ed? I would suppose well seeing as Shef Utd have taken him, haven't heard his name in a long time though considering big things were expected of him at one time.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - still struggles with injuries and attitude though. Wilder likes to take chances on players, feeling he can get the most out of players that have been underperforming.}

22 Jan 2020 10:26:44
Rate that attitude, I can imagine Chris can change most people’s attitudes.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - they either knuckle down and work for the team or else with Wilder. There is no coasting in his team. If he can get Robinson to pull his head out of his backside, there might still be a player in there and it is not yet too late for him.}

22 Jan 2020 10:54:30
Completely agree Ed, he’s got every playing working their ass of for him whatever footballing background they have.

And currently it’s bloody working!

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I really like what Wilder is doing. I really want to see how far he can take that, can he do it with even better players? I hope so as it is nice to see someone come from pretty much nowhere and succeed, with no leg up because he happened to once play for a big club.}

22 Jan 2020 11:12:28
Got the feeling he liked to take chances with revel Morrison and jack rodwell going in! he's certainly confident in his ability (rightly so given how they have done this seasom) but may have bitten off more than he can chew with them lemons.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - they are all in last chance saloon there, so he might get lucky. If not, well there is little real outlay, so no real risk to the club.}

22 Jan 2020 11:48:58
I do love a real underdog attitude.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2020 12:16:13
Suppose your your right ed as I believe both on short term contracts. Not going to be stuck with inflated wages. Was always going to be a big ask. Frustrating when footballers waste a chance to be remembered for something other than coasting, both looked like real talents at one stage.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it is a shame, but it is up to them.}

21 Jan 2020 23:02:30
30 years since we won the league
30 years since we hosted united, top of the table
30 points clear of united
30 points to win the league

Played united on the "19th" of the "1st"

21 Jan 2020 19:39:43
So I guess we play a front 4 of Mane, Salah, mbappe, firmino next season?

Hendo and Fab in Mid, or Gini?

Got taki, Ox, Kieta, Jones, Div and maybe Shaq as offensive options.

Wow. Crazy good squad.

Wonder if Milner will give Mbappe the 7 shirt when Mbappe signs for Liverpool this summer?

Mbappe.

Don't forget Timo Werner and Kai Havertz to fit in as well ;)

Agree4 0Disagree

22 Jan 2020 01:21:06
Simao and draxler to come in as back up also.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jan 2020 05:11:32
Naaah. Draxler won't happen.

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Jan 2020 10:44:36
Honestly though i think we will be selling Shaqiri in the summer and will bring in Timo Werner.

Klopp will look to freshen the team as it is necessary to do so for sustained success.

I also think we will sell Lovern and Lallana and get replacements for them two as well.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jan 2020 12:49:53
I think Mbappe will get a run out in the league cup and the under23’s until he settles in England.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2020 12:59:57
I think Minamino is Shaqiri’s replacement effectively PakRed.

All hail ed047 for telling the man u fans like it is for chasing 4th place and saying the truth about the situation man u are in- post of the year! I hope Arsenal can get it together and laugh at man u for many years hoping for 4th every year!

Agree5 0Disagree

{Ed047's Note - I just think it’s pointless of them to kid themselves as we were guilty of doing Andy.

21 Jan 2020 22:11:20
Can I tell you something Ed047 A lot of Utd fan's I know are saying that this is just a blip, a one off so to speak. They are in serious trouble but they won't admit it.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed047's Note - that’s some 7 year blip Barry and they are Barry, that’s for sure.

21 Jan 2020 22:40:29
No way Ed is it really 7 year's brilliant🤣.

{Ed047's Note - yes mate 2012/13 was there last league title

I can see it being a 70 year blip one off at this rate.

22 Jan 2020 01:16:38
The most hilarious thing I seen is 'If we had a team full of Freds we wouldn't be in this situation' 😂. Question, Does Fred even get ahead of Lallana? 🤣.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Jan 2020 08:43:05
I find it hilarious that when the desperately need leadership on the pitch who do they give the captaincy to? The local lad? The veteran of many seasons? Or the new guy who has played 20 games at the club. Nothing against Maguire but i don't see him as a galvanising force who leads by example, the next Roy Keane. Maybe he just drew the short straw.

Agree3 0Disagree

21 Jan 2020 16:53:19
If Nobby can't stay fit the next time he returns to the squad I would sell in the summer. Sometimes we have to cut our losses.

Curtis Jones will be ready to step into that rotational role.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jan 2020 17:23:42
I like that idea, I love the player when fit but its a reoccurring theme with injuries if persistent sell him get havertz or neves.

Agree2 0Disagree

21 Jan 2020 17:55:40
Day and night difference between Jones and Keita, skill and experience wise. Jones is two seasons away from being skilled and experienced enough to be able to contribute to a team playing at such a high level, week in and week out. Players like TAA come along only once in a while. Wrong to assume every academy product can be the same.

Agree4 0Disagree

21 Jan 2020 18:59:10
I think if we were to try and integrate another younger player into the team then Keita's place would be ideal. Let's be honest, Keita hasn't played that much and even less full games, so it wouldn't be as if Jones would be exposed to 2 games a week continuously. The problem might be if we had a load of midfield injuries and he had to play more regularly. Midfield is a harder position to be thrown into the deep end than say full back but I like what Jones has done so far.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jan 2020 19:22:08
I would argue Jones is better than Naby.
It's hard to judge because Jones hasn't played in the first team with obviously better players around him. If he had Fabinho protecting him, Salah and Mane making world class runs for his passes. Linking with Bobby. Behind you is Virgil. Trent n Robbo whipping the ball perfectly at you all game. Wij/ Hendo dominating midfield. It's hard to see how he couldn't be better than naby who has Only shown glimpses.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jan 2020 19:49:43
Jones is better than Naby, on which planet? What has Jones done? Hasn't even played one pl game yet.
We will get 112 points.
Win the league v Everton or City
We will do the treble (or win 5 trophies) .

People - this is why we sometimes get a bad press as fans, stay humble, grounded, don't get ahead of yourselfs, just enjoy it. I don't care if we win the league with 85 or 100 points, it won't mean any less.

Calm down, calm down ha.

Agree14 0Disagree

21 Jan 2020 20:03:19
Jones to take the Naby role in the squad would be fine and he’s not two seasons away he’s ready to be a squad player now. It’s not like nobby plays much is it!

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jan 2020 20:24:06
I like Jones but you lot are talking madness. Keita has played much better than Jones in midfield this season. Yes he's been injured a lot but he can get past it. Look at lallana. Was injured for pretty much 2 years, on and off. And now is doing well when called upon. I said he would have a part to play and that goal vs utd proved me right. Keita is only young and will get past this and we will have a brilliant player. Look how good he was playing before the injury. Goals, assists, tackles.

It doesn't mean Jones doesn't get a look in, but don't lose faith in naby yet.

Agree9 0Disagree

21 Jan 2020 22:53:39
Amazing what one goal does! Was it yourself who said rossiter was the next gerrard?

Agree5 0Disagree

22 Jan 2020 01:05:23
Mark I don’t think anyone is seriously expecting us to get 112 points or go unbeaten but it’s possible so it has to be the target. This is a freak season with the form we’ve shown we may never get a better chance.

I’m torn between going all out for that or going for the champions league. Seriously.
I just think we’ll have other chances to win the CL but we will never be in this position in the league ever again so we should try to make it extra special.
Both would be even better though ;-)

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jan 2020 01:39:28
Ridiculous to undermine keita and also overhype Jones to that extent. Keita has played in 49 games over 18 months since he joined, Jones has only a handful of cup appearances so how can you justify that Jones would be the better option. He's only 18 and yes he's shining in the reserves but prenier league and champions league games week in week out is too much to think he's ready yet, let him develop instead of handing him the pressure of replacing a 50 million midfielder who's played at the top of bundesliga for a few years and is obviously talented enough to play his way into our starting 11. It's like when people blindly thought Jordan ibe could replace the quality of sterling despite not having proved anything.

1 poster alluded to Jones finding it easier with all the top teammates he'd have around him but what about how he finds it coming up against likes of kante and other top midfields that he is yet to have played against. Give the lad time he's not ready yet and he doesn't need to be relied upon and thus weakening our side.

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Jan 2020 08:47:10
Keita would have started against United had he been fit. Selling a player of his calibre isn’t what Liverpool do. Look at Lallana. He has been massive when called upon this season (when fit) . Keita in my opinion should not be sold.

The club has money to afford players time off. Whether Klopp signs another player to compete is another story.

However what do I know? The club will make the right decision i am sure but I’m a big fan of Keita and would be sad to see him go.

Now as for Shaqiri. He can be sold due to his performances on the field not compensating enough for his injury record.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jan 2020 08:52:28
I’m glad somebody said it markop. Enjoy the ride but stay classy San Diego.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jan 2020 10:04:02
I hate all this Keita bashing. Stevie G was riddled with injuries in his first couple of years, what would’ve happened if we’d sold him because we had Jay Spearing coming through?
Give Naby time to get fit, settled and get a proper run in the side. We have a worldy there it’s only a matter of time until he shows it.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It has not just been a case of getting fit - it was a mistake buying him and the money could well have been better spent.}

22 Jan 2020 10:04:08
Its very true that we haven't seen Jones with the better first team players alongside him, but i tell you one person who has and that's Klopp. He sees it every day in training and there must be a reason why Jones isn't getting into the starting line ups and squads when Naby does. That is not me saying he won't be good enough in the future but Klopps selections are proving he's not quite good enough yet.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jan 2020 10:42:42
Seriously Lads it far from Keita bashing and to reference Lallana as an example is also crazy considering Lallana has only been a squad player at best.

Facts of the matter are Keita was purchased for a lot of money, has shown to have a poor attitude when it comes to learning the language (although has improved lately) in order to satisfy work permit demands.

On top of that how many of these 49 apperances have been a full match? He is never fit and if you have a £50 million pound player taking a good wage out of the club that has been far from reliable since he arrived is something that needs reviewing and I fully expect the club to do just that although Klopp may be tempted to give him another season to see if he can reach his undoubted potential if and it is an if, he can stay fit and do what is required to stay with the club.

In terms of Jones, yes he is young, yes he has only played a few games. That does not detract from his obvious talent, he is a local lad and it never hurts to have them in the squad, if he is to occupy the role of Keita and play 1 game in 5 or more I really don't see the issue. The young lads will only develop and grow as a player given the chance and thankfully Klopp is of that thinking also.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I agree 100%. Keita's attitude has been the big issue with him, he should have learnt the language and made an effort to fit in first and foremost. So a lot of the criticism he has brought upon himself.

As for Jones, he deserves a squad place, he deserves the chance to get games and develop. It might even be the wake-up call Keita needs if Jones gets the nod over him because he is making more of an effort.}

22 Jan 2020 10:33:12
Ed002 quick one if you don't mind please. In regards to your reply to Beckers Pecker. Is that your opinion that Naby is a mistake buy or is that a shared opinion from within the club?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I would imagine that most in the club fail to see the transfer as much more than a self-inflicted wound.}

What a prat, he's also recently become an ambassador for UKIE, which if you don't know is supposedly the organisation there to protect children from the increasingly harmful practices video game companies employ to extract your hard earned money through your children (gambling mechanics and micro transactions) .

UKIE have basically said it's the parents job to make sure children don't empty their bank accounts when letting them play video games like FIFA, effectively doing nothing when they should be challenging these truly shameful business tactics (FIFA is rated 3 years and above) .

He should be ashamed of himself agreeing to be the face of that campaign, but I suppose it doesn't matter to him if his kids blow £1000 on FIFA packs.

The state of the industry is alarming, and all the governing bodies bury their heads in the sand and act like it isn't digital robery for fear of upsetting the game companies which make so much money.

At least the NHS are now getting involved after seeing the number of children with gambling problems increasing ten fold.

Honestly parents don't buy FIFA for your kids, it's evil, manipulative, rubbish made by business men who's only goal is to extract every possible penny they can from your kids without you even realising.

Ea apparently made £80 million in an hour on Black Friday. My work mates play fut and all have spent minimum £500 up to £2000 just this year on packs. Where are the authorities? Or does it need greta thungberg to say something before anybody cares?

So glad I play fm. 25 quid and I can get whatever players I want!

Many pundits are saying that for this LFC team to be considered great, they have to win a couple of Premierships or more in a row. I hope Grobbelaar does not take it to the next level and sh**s on the goal posts. Well, what the heck, if it is going to help, no one would complain, I suppose.

I don't think the lads are bothered about being great for now. I am not. I want them to win the league. Maybe after that we can start talking about being the great.

21 Jan 2020 18:09:18
If we do stay at the top and make it beyond a 100 points, then I would argue that we are already beyond the ManC record under Guardiola. Two consecutive Champions League final appearances (winning the second one) and then two seasons with one at only one point behind the winner and the other being heads above everyone else, clearly warrants being called the best of the Premier League era. If we win the EPL this year, we will be the first team to ever win the Quadruple in a 12 month period (Champions League, Super Cup, World Club Cup and English Premier League) . Could be a Quintuple if we're lucky with the FA Cup.

Agree2 0Disagree

21 Jan 2020 20:29:10
They are great. Two cl finals, one won. Super cup, cwc, pl. This team has already achieved greatness. They do need to win a couple more please to be considered the best ever.
