Hi Ed001, I haven’t missed the match review from the Palace game have I?
I did tell you last week I could be losing the plot.!


{Ed001's Note - actually no, I didn't actually do it yet, I was going to do it as a double one with tonight's match as there wasn't really a lot I could see to write about in the Palace game.}

1.) 27 Nov 2019 10:35:21
Fair enough mate, I always look forward to them as they’re a great read - I’m confident we’ll get the win tomorrow but it’ll be a tough one .

Cheers ED.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate. I will make sure to do one for that game and tonight's for you.}

2.) 27 Nov 2019 11:11:49
Thanks mate!

{Ed001's Note - glad to be of service mate.}

3.) 27 Nov 2019 12:58:52
So when strikers stop scoring it’s because they’ve stopped errr scoring? 🤔.

{Ed001's Note - are you ok mikey?}

4.) 27 Nov 2019 13:45:24
Maybe Asprilla needs to send some friends to help ManUtd get an europa league spot.

5.) 27 Nov 2019 14:37:12
Cheers mate. That Asprilla story is hilarious. Always loved Crespo. Not so much in 2005 cl final though. Might have muttered a few naughties at him that night. We made it up at the end though.

{Ed001's Note - Asprilla is a real character. Him and Valderrama together must be great fun.}

6.) 28 Nov 2019 01:45:17
And a review for me please Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - oh sorry now I know you want them Bazza I will make sure to forget to bother.... ;-)

7.) 28 Nov 2019 08:59:12
Ed01, did you hear that Valderama (a true genius on the pitch) got his hair stretched out into flowing blond hair?

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea what that even means mate. Stretched out?}

8.) 28 Nov 2019 10:40:28
What if they threw God and Bellamy in there for a night out?



15 Nov 2019 19:36:36
ED001, apologies as I may behind the 8 ball here, but has there been a match review of the Man City game?


{Ed001's Note - yes mate Man City match review. Took me a while to find it as it was done so long ago... ;-)

1.) 15 Nov 2019 20:22:57
Ha ha cheers!

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, hope you enjoy.}

2.) 16 Nov 2019 09:09:57
Great read as usual!
Just wanted to get your thoughts on the handball ruling, there seems to be so much conflicting interpretations of them at the moment. While TAA’s was never a pen, do you think we’ll get to the stage where any contact with the hand / arm will be a foul to make it a blanket rule?
Cheers Ed.

{Ed001's Note - it already is in Spain. That is why you see players put their hands behind their back as they have been coached to avoid that. I expect it will spread to the rest of the leagues in time to make it easier for everyone to understand.}

3.) 16 Nov 2019 14:00:24
So good I read it again!
Cheers Ed.

{Ed001's Note - wow, thank you Bram.}

Spot on, Ed01 re: the handball rule. In Italy, they do that as well and at one time in France, it was the same thing. Not sure if it is now. The handball rule in the PL is open to interpretation (something in some quarters, I support) and that is why the TAA incident was NEVER a penalty.

What the pundits and City synchophants were trying to do was to use the handball standards in Spain, Italy and in the CL to judge a handball situation knowing full well IMO, that these rules NEVER applied. They wanted TAA's handball to be penalized even tho it was unintentional in my opinion (as his arm was away from his body cos he had been running and slowed down which is done with your arms away from your side), YET let Sivlva's unintentional handball go. Dishonest mugs, the lot of them.

{Ed001's Note - pundits just want controversy. Pep just wanted something else to blame, rather than admit he is at fault.}

Apologies if this has been mentioned, but obviously Klopp is a fantastic coach, motivator and his man management seems top notch as well. Just seeing if the Ed’s has any insight as to what happened towards the end of his time at Dortmund? Was it just a case of the players he had weren’t good enough? Or did they not buy into his style anymore?


{Ed001's Note - a lot of it was down to bad luck, they had one of those seasons where they hit the woodwork an inordinate amount of times. Part of it was because the club kept selling his best players and he was constantly having to begin again. And part of it was the other teams were improving and investing in their teams while he was rebuilding his.}

1.) 12 Jun 2019 00:33:53
Klopp was making the players very good as they bought into his way of playing and were given the big boys a run for their money. But if I remember right they would then be picked off by likes of Bayern and he had to continually try to compete whilst integrating new players. Can see why the club would accept good money but they were on cusp of being best team. If only he had a bit more investment.
As a side note I find it strange that Bayern can basically but any player they choose in that league and clubs negotiate prices with them whilst not wanting to accept bids from abroad. Is there an unwritten rule selling between clubs?

2.) 12 Jun 2019 06:45:33
Thanks Ed for the reply!

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

3.) 12 Jun 2019 08:38:23
OP, Ed is correct. Klopp's last season was strange a many diff. levels. It seemed like ALL things were just going against them in games esp. since it was a season right after the WC in Brazil, his players were not as fit as he would like. Hence, injuries kept flowing as his WC players were having all types of injuries.

Triple this with the fact that his players kept being cherry-picked by Bayern, he had to sign players horridly and go again afresh hence, the likes of Mykhitarian ans esp. Immobile were not convincing (Immobile was a true flop) . By Christmas, BVB was in the relegation zone.

Now when he got his players back things started to to change and they finished 7th, beating Bayern in the DFB Pokal in the semis and then lost to Wolfsburg led by KDB who were frankly, the better team. It was clear that it was time for Klopp to go as the situation had become unsustainable esp. since Hummels left 2 season afterwards.

4.) 12 Jun 2019 15:00:45
Pretty much Moggsy. You'll see the same thing in Italy. A lot of it is down to wanting to maintain the strength of your league by keeping the major talents. An especially relevant issue given how much more money english teams have. In theory its not a bad idea, but what seems to usually happen is that one team buys all of the best players. This in turn actually weakens the league as Competition is needed.

5.) 12 Jun 2019 15:01:04
Makes a lot of sense Ed.
Klopp must be delighted to think his future is at a club that can hold onto players now, in the main.
Coutihno excluded.

6.) 12 Jun 2019 15:07:39
Moggsy, German players mostly see Bayern as the best way to get attention from the German National team hence, the reason why they prefer to go to Bayern and why Bayern have the lot to pick from within Germany. This has been going on for the past 25 years or so that I know of.

Hi ED002, thanks for your responses and apologies if this has been asked
Hypothetically speaking, if we had already won the league at this point and the season is expunged from records, that would obviously include the title being wiped also?



{Ed002's Note - It has not been discussed but you are right it would need to be - as is the case with the League Cup.}
