Hi Ed, I was just wondering when you think it will be time for Brewster to be included on the bench for premier league/ champions league games. In my opinion I can't see who he would replace on the bench but I was hoping you'd give your opinion.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - no idea. Really depends on how he performs in training.}

Hi everyone. Is it safe to book hotel and plane tickets for ManC game on 9th of November or could they still reschedule that game? I once booked hotel and flights too early and that cost me one extra flight and two extra hotel nights.

Kind regards, Tomi.

They've already rescheduled that game for 10th mate, 4pm kick off.

its on the 10th now been moved to sunday 4:30 for tv.

Thanks guys. Didn't notice that. Good thing I asked.

Would be so much easier if they would televise 3pm kick offs.

Midfield is definitely an area that will be strengthened next when we next go into transfer market, so I have too say James maddison should be one of the first to go for, that lad is a gem .

Agree4 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 09:07:37
Fantastic player but if Leicester managed to swindle what they did from United for Maguire, I wouldn’t like to think what they’d try to get for Maddison.
Perhaps they knew of United’s sheer desperation but the gulf between Maddison and Maguire is so large that they’d surely demand a lot more for the latter.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 09:19:19
Very true his price now would be silly, just goes too show how much quality is in lower leagues though and on flipside how stupid transfer market is at minute.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 09:28:14
Think we could see a few midfielders move on at the end of this season. Lallana, Grujic, Wilson and possibly Milner. If Naby doesn’t find some kind of form and fitness this season then who knows he could even be at risk. We have young Harvey Elliot but again next season he’s only going to be 17/ 18 years old so still a kid. I can definitely see at least 1 very good established midfielder being signed.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 10:50:11
I’m not sure that our analytical approach to transfers will marry up with Maddison’s price tag?
I’m more in favour of adding an added goal threat, allied to industry of course, next year.
I still maintain that there was a case for doing so in this Summer’s window, look at the numbers of goals that Man City have already totalled.
They may get de-railed now and then but they’re handing out real hammerings on a regular basis.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 11:02:42
Personally I've been quite impressed with Buendia so far. He needs to prove it over the full season but he would at least come without the British premium price. He's also only 22, doesn't take on silly shots (Maddison hadn't scored in over 30 attempts before yesterday), and has more bite than most attacking midfielders in the league. His decision making is superb to boot.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 11:15:21
I'd leave maddy and go for that Kai Havertz lad.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 11:44:56
Man City’s goal difference will always be higher than ours no matter what we do, they have a style and quality to dissect teams that is largely impossible to replicate. We are a very different, but equally as good team.
As for City’s goals scored column, Watford should be docked points for bringing the game into disrepute with that performance yesterday. Their aggregate score against City since Pep came in reads: 3-35.
Flores should have sacked himself as well. I knew he’d roll over after that comeback performance against Arsenal.

Agree3 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 11:49:05
Leicester done a great bit of business with Norwich and they surely would be looking a kings ransom if he wanted to move. He would cost a fortune, unless he ran down his contract 😉😉. For the money, I don't think he would have the same impact on the team as VVD and Allison.
Saying all that, at the age of 22, he could play 10 years in our midfield, so maybe the price tag might be worth it?

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 12:02:56
I have too say if we could get kai havertz, I would definitely rather have him as in world football in his position he is seriously hot property, thing is though if u think maddison is expensive havertz would command ridiculous money .

Agree2 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 12:42:39
I don't know. I have a sneaky feeling that Grujic has developed sufficiently enough to provide a valuable option in midfield. He may yet end up staying with us long-term despite all that has happened.

Chelsea away.

Not sure what to make about this one. Always a tough fixture away at Stamford Bridge but surely we have enough to go one better than last season?

One thing is for sure, we need to be more clinical and sharper in the final third than we were against Napoli.

21 Sep 2019 12:18:42
if we can come away with a draw, i'll be happy.

We will win. Just coz they beat wolves. So what.

Loved lawros comment on vvds rare mistake against napoli. "like ashtrays on a pushbike" brilliant. Classic lawro.

We'll batter them.

Tough game to predict this one. It's one of the games we drew last season so it would be great if we won.

Agree5 0Disagree

21 Sep 2019 16:48:16
It will be very tight with only a goal in it in my opinion, saying we'll batter them seems daft when they are also playing very well and are at home. I'd take a draw, but be delighted with 3 points.

Agree4 1Disagree

21 Sep 2019 18:28:33
Depends if Kante plays for me. The guys immense and leave a massive hole when he's out.

Agree4 0Disagree

21 Sep 2019 19:57:56
They may score but our front 3 always get themselves psyched up for the big games. So we'll score more. And their defense still needs a lot of work. David Luis is always only one mistake away from letting in a silly one. I'm convinced the boys want to send a message out in the League that Napoli was a one-off blip, that everyone should forget about. I think we will leave with the 3 points.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Luiz is at Arsenal now.}

21 Sep 2019 20:33:22
Right Ed. Thanks for the correction. i've even seen him play against us for Arsenal. Don't know what I was thinking. Copious liquid refreshments on a late Saturday night are undoubtedly helping.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - old age mate. We all suffer from it eventually.}

21 Sep 2019 23:02:45
I am sure the boys will give it all they can and I am there will be no lack of efforts. But it's one of these games where we may drop points and if we do, it won't be the end of the world.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Sep 2019 23:15:16
Of all the top 6 away games, i think we'll come through this one with the best result. This isn't the Chelsea team of old, full of wise old heads needed in a game like this, i think we'll win comfortably.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 09:20:38
ArAy echo those thoughts mate. Luis is always likely to make a mistake and let’s hope Drogba and Shevechenko don’t have their shooting boots on today. Beasant won’t keep a clean sheet for them and Dennis Wise is always likely to see red 😉.

{Ed025's Note - love it JK..

21 Sep 2019 23:16:34
Sorry Ed001, but that kind of excuse can only be attributed to Ed025, LOL. He is clearly older than the club he supports and he can't hide it. 😂.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - don't be sorry, it just means you have no excuse.}

22 Sep 2019 10:43:28
Without wanting to seem arrogant I also feel this Chelsea side are set up in a way that will struggle to match us, they're conceding a lot of goals, (I think the 2nd most behind Watford only) . Dropped points in every game at Stamford bridge so far and injury doubts with the likes of kante, rudiger, Emerson, mount might be a problem for them.

I don't see Abraham having as much joy as he's got off other poor defenses and hazard was always the guy who gave us big problems against Chelsea in the past. Our front 3 are flying with confidence while chelseas Back line is vulnerable. I can see us getting a few goals realistically so if we can stay solid at the back we should be hoping for 3 points.

Agree2 0Disagree

21 Sep 2019 09:16:17
Over the years when we've Loaned out players it's seemed a massive waste of time. But the Harry Wilson moves looks a great one at the moment!

Agree6 1Disagree

21 Sep 2019 12:33:40
It’s seems an interesting one he seems to still be scoring regularly in the prem, however from what I have heard his overall input into the game still needs some work on.

Needs to work harder and no go missing for long periods of the game. Demand the ball, dictate the play.

Anyways well done to the lad!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - well done? If he doesn't do more then he doesn't deserve to be congratulated. Laziness should not be celebrated. Playing well below the level you are capable of should not receive applause.}

21 Sep 2019 20:02:27
Whichever way you look at it, I don't think he's suitable to the way we play and what Klopp wants out of the midfielders. I doubt very much we'll see him in LFC shirt. I think this loan was a pure financial play. Build up the kid some more, hope he does well elsewhere with some key goals, and then ask for the 20 Million next summer when they come calling again.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Sep 2019 21:22:08
I meant for the goal Ed!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I would still not congratulate him, he needs to do more to earn that.}

===========
You are very harsh, very high standards . feel sorry for your kids (if you have any :)

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - but he is not one of my kids, he is a professional footballer who is wasting his talent. Hardly high standards to expect him to put in an effort and break sweat on the pitch. You have clearly got ridiculously low standards if you think he is earning the obscene money he gets paid to play a game we would all happily play for free.}

22 Sep 2019 03:56:02
I think it's telling that he's often subbed off early. The other night Southampton were getting in more and more control after HT and Wilson had to be taken off as he was anonymous in his midfield duties out of possession.

Up until last year his career was predominantly as a star man u23 player but he now needs to show that he can offer more to his team. Technically talented players don't last too long in the starting 11 of premier league teams if they are unable to give more than just moments of class on the ball. The right manager might be able to help him improve in this area of his game, but I'm not so sure Eddie Howe is great in that department.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 09:04:05
To look on the positive side, his output is very good for a guy playing below himself.

But, yes, I am sure Klopp and co are looking for other parts of his game as indicators whether to keep him or not.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 12:47:30
JK23, buddy, want to step outside for a minute so we can discuss your hilarious sense of humour, LOL? Or maybe we can address it in the live chat tonight. 😉.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 14:01:26
What it comes down to is that he is not as talented as Shaqiri and even Xherdan can't get time on the pitch. Wilson will likely come back in to replace Shaq who will want to leave due to lack of game time.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 16:09:19
I was reading a tweet from a Bournemouth supporter who, whilst appreciated his goal return, was quite critical of his work rate.
If he can work hard at Bournemouth then he will never make it into a Klopp first XI.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 16:19:35
I watched the game and he was terrible. If there was a 50/ 50 to go for, he backed away and left it for a team mate every time.

I really hope he notches up plenty of goals this season and his work rate doesn't get highlighted too much in the media, or it will affect his value.

We need to take the highest bid next time anyone wants to sign him permanently.

Mr. Neymar suddenly has a big problem now, LOL. Barcelona didn't break the bank to get him back this summer and will show even less interest next summer. And Real Madrid is aiming for Mbappe. There's a spot available at ManU. 😉.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 09:05:24
Aray- mate I have no idea but I can see Barcelona going back in for neymar. I mean they ain't going to sell millions of Fati shirts are they.!

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2019 13:04:46
I doubt very much that the number of shirts sold will cover the difference in the financial package needed to be be given, between Neymar and Fati.
