Good morning everyone. Really looking forward to Ed001 match review.


1.) 17 Dec 2020 20:23:29
I hope he talks about Moanrinho's living obviously in an alternative reality.

2.) 17 Dec 2020 21:34:12
I know England has a fair few bad pundits, but listening to ESPN's coverage and people like Craig Burley saying "Klopp is annoying me" and "I don't care if it annoys people, I like watching Tottenham more than Liverpool" are enough to drive me up the wall. They make the case that if Bergwijn finishes his chances its 3-1. what about all of the chances we had that went literally right at the goalie? Salah on his right foot scuffing it? Mane drilling the crossbar? 11 shots on target to 2; 17 shots to 8? 74% possession? 813 passes to 254? Sure, someone can make a comment about Klopp not making any subs, but who was he going to bring on? Ox and Keita who are literally not fit? These pundits live in Mourinho's world. I have watched Tottenham several times this year and get no joy from it. They set up to play exact as we expected and got punished for it when they took their best player off the pitch.

3.) 18 Dec 2020 00:26:04
Craig Burley and Richard Keys hate us. They are horrible individuals that get to stay on air knowing their words cause controversy.

4.) 18 Dec 2020 05:24:34
the talking heads can do my head in sometimes. well, actually, the writing fingers on here can do my head sometimes too hahahaha

each to their own tho. Some people laud the pragmatism of Mourinho's style. We were mature and lucky enough (we should admit) to ride the waves and eventually come out on top.

5.) 18 Dec 2020 14:41:07
I don't enjoy listening to football pundits. I find commentators to be really annoying. In my view they spoil the occasion. I would much prefer to watch a match with just the crowd noise. No commentator. No pundit. No idiotic and pointless statistics. We aren't we allowed to just watch the game?

6.) 18 Dec 2020 15:48:38
I just watched the game in full again and just don’t get it. Tottenham basically set up to defend and Liverpool completely dominated the game. We could have killed it off with decent finishing while they were basically limited to 3-4 key moments, while we dominated midfield and created at least a dozen good opportunities. I also think if Son had been subjected to the same scrutiny as Mane vs Everton, he would have been offsides. No question at all in my mind, the better team won.

Special mention to our midfield who were imperious, Bobby Firmino who was brilliant, Robbo who has been my player of the season so far, and Rhys who did an excellent job on Debut.



20 Sep 2020 20:45:03
Why was Henderson taken off?


{Ed0666's Note - injury

1.) 20 Sep 2020 20:59:00
Oh thanks Ed.

{Ed0666's Note - no worries mate hope you enjoyed the game.

2.) 20 Sep 2020 22:11:26
I think it was just precautionary (tight thigh they said on commentary) but also the perfect scenario to introduce Thiago’s skill set to the game.

3.) 20 Sep 2020 21:25:53
I was worried before the game I must admit but 10-15 minutes into the game I started to relax a bit. Now the sending off did of course help us no question there. I was really interested in watching Timo play and plenty of pace but would he suit our style of play? I definitely think we need more cover at CB even tho Fab was just fab.3pts in the bag Ed0666 and extremely happy mate👍😁.

{Ed0666's Note - Yeh I said earlier I’m not sure Werner would have suited us and I stand by that. He’s phenomenal in a counter attacking side. Buying a CB is imperative mate as fab can’t be expected to pull out that type of center back display as an auxillary consistently if god forbid he had to. It was also telling that even tho Matip & Gomez didn’t play Billy the kid wasn’t picked so clearly Klopp doesn’t feel he’s ready to step up.

4.) 21 Sep 2020 07:57:14
I believe Billy was injured according to an injury update on the LFC website so Klopp may still consider him adequate cover.

{Ed001's Note - he was.}

5.) 21 Sep 2020 08:00:13
Was gomez injured? Seemed odd to not even have him in the bench if so.

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

6.) 21 Sep 2020 08:14:09
I thought fabinho was excellent at cb to the point that I’d like to see him there every week. He reads the game well makes great interceptions great tackles and good in the air. Add the fact that he can play a bit as well and I think you’ve got a perfect partner for VVD there. Held his own against a very good Werner on more than one occasion. Thiago with the exception of the challenge for the penalty looked exceptional, I’ll be honest I didn’t see the need for him as we have plenty of midfielders but in 45 minutes he proved with almost every touch of the ball that he’s a different class. Playing with a swagger of someone who has won everything and wants to win more. Liverpool at times looked in a training match just keeping possession and probing for Weakness for long stages. Chelsea miss pulisic and ziyech and will be a different prospect when they’re fit however Liverpool went to a team that want to be contenders and made them look average for 90 minutes. A very good squad developing now with cover across the pitch.

7.) 21 Sep 2020 04:15:21
So we’re all talking about a CB, but Eds, do we know of any actual solid interest in any? I’m hoping you won’t say Carlos.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything different to what has been discussed I am afraid.}

8.) 21 Sep 2020 10:36:44
Fab has a mean streak in him, as a DM this is okay, but not as a CB. The risk would be too much.

{Ed025's Note - hes your second best centre back after VVD for me xpertoyin, reads the game very well and kept werner quiet yesterday which is not easy mate..

9.) 21 Sep 2020 10:49:20
I agree Ed025. Gomez is a very good young centre back but Fabinho is just better in every defensive department except recovery pace. He even holds the offside trap better.

{Ed025's Note - he has something better than speed HMB, he has speed of thought, reads the game very well which although hes young gomez fails on imo, just my opinion though mate..

10.) 21 Sep 2020 11:03:48
Was just going to say the same thing Ed. I thought he was exceptional and I think what I liked most was how well he read the game and his calmness with bring the ball out of dangerous situations. With regards to Thiago, I was also one that didn't see the need to go for him but wow, what a player. He strikes the ball so well and effortlessly finds a red shirt. I'm very excited to see more of him in midfield.

11.) 21 Sep 2020 13:25:55
As they say Ed025, the first 5 yards are in your head.

{Ed025's Note - dead right mate..

12.) 21 Sep 2020 13:39:02
I hope we don't sign a Cb think Gomez and VVD are a great pair big games like yesterday Fab can cover with the lower end clubs the young lads can cover if Matip and Gomez are both out. If I could sign one more player I would rather we get better cover for Alisson as Adrian proved last year in the fa cup and champions league he is not good enough.

13.) 21 Sep 2020 07:47:56
Think klopp said billy had a knock too.

{Ed0666's Note - thanks mate

14.) 21 Sep 2020 16:31:38
Can I ask who is Billy the kid? Haha.

15.) 21 Sep 2020 21:42:05
Gomez is far better than Fabinho at centre back.

I'm ok with Fabinho providing cover but no way would I agree with Fabinho actually being better than Gomez as a center back.

Excellent yesterday but if he playing there regularly I think he'd be caught out (lack of pace and strong but a bit clumsy so I think he would give away a fair few penalties) .

16.) 21 Sep 2020 23:14:18
Fabinho played superbly vs chelski. id be happy to see him there, maybe Tiago and Hendo infront of him. Would allow Keita to play slightly further forward. Or maybe play Bobby in a "10" role, move Mane inside, play Jota left channel and keep Salah down the right channel. Either way, and more, we've signed some great players in great deals, giving us a chance of retaining the title. Come on REDMEN. YNWA.



29 Jul 2020 11:57:38
Why did Liverpool not sign Harvetz? Was it lack of money? Or were they even interested in him?


{Ed002's Note - No money and not a player Liverpool looked to tap up.}

1.) 29 Jul 2020 13:40:13
Nice little jab there Ed, you’re quite partial to those. I’m pretty happy with the championship winning midfielders we have right now, so I guess we’ll have to look at tapping up a center back that Klopp so desperately wants?

{Ed002's Note - The statement is correct.}

2.) 29 Jul 2020 16:56:27
Everyone Liverpool look at were tapping them up. I now we’ve done it in the past but surely it’s not every transfer we’re looking into Ed . that would be worrying.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool did not speak with RBL about Werner. Liverpool have not spoken with Bayern Munich about Thiago.}

3.) 30 Jul 2020 07:03:30
It seems apparently every player Liverpool are genuinely interested in signing is being tapped up by the club according to some people.

4.) 31 Jul 2020 10:55:53
For me I’d like to see williams play more at rb and taa in cm I’d like to see jones get more playing time too. I feel like gomez and VVD have a great partnership and would like to see sepp or hoever more involved in first team games. The biggest concern for me as a fan is our chance conversion rate. Also the lack of options outside the front 3 . Our first team is excellent I hope to see Naby play more and get more goals next season. Pressure of 30 years no league is gone I hope they can push on and play with some more freedom. LB and cf the positions I’d like cover for maybe try playing Minamino a bit more too.



05 Jul 2020 14:45:29
Victor Osimhen is/ could there be money for him if JK listens to this scout?


{Ed002's Note - No Barry.}

1.) 05 Jul 2020 14:59:30
I don’t see the fuss with Osimhen, he needs about 6 or 7 shots to get a goal and more often than not his efforts end up in the keepers hands or in the stands. Can’t see what he offers that we don’t already have in Origi in terms of being a big quick target man. Other than filling Lille’s coffers to the tune of £70m and us not getting a £70m player, surely we should learn from Arsenal getting mugged off over Nicolas Pepe?

2.) 05 Jul 2020 21:52:06
Sorry for the badly worded question Ed002 but at least you understud it mate and thanks for the reply.

{Ed002's Note - No problem Barry.}



29 Aug 2019 23:20:29
Is Lovern all but gone Tris?


{Ed001's Note - all but gone? No, he might well leave but nothing has been done yet. No offer has been acceptable so far. Plenty of time yet though.}

1.) 29 Aug 2019 23:54:31
Looks like Roma have got Smalling instead.


2.) 30 Aug 2019 00:39:51
With Roma seemingly looking like they are getting smalling I'm guessing they have ended their interest in lovren?

3.) 30 Aug 2019 06:30:26
Jeez, they must have been desparate, Smalling is an awful footballer.

4.) 30 Aug 2019 17:00:46
I'd suggest Lovren is staying after what Klopp said today i. e. we had four CBs last season and still had to have Fab do it due to injuries and that they will ALL be needed again this season.

5.) 30 Aug 2019 18:55:25
If we want to challenge for all the top honours you need 4 capable CBs over the course of maybe 50/ 60 games. Be a huge risk to let him go, just 1 injury immediately leaves us bare at the back. Lovren is far from perfect but as squad player for backup with his experience there aren't many CBs around with better quality as a 4th choice. 1 more year and then let him choose his next club if he can't hold down a regular spot for us.

This time last year matip was in his position but took his opportunity to claim 1st team spot. Competition is strong in CB and let the young lads have another year of development before we prematurely rely on having to use them.

6.) 30 Aug 2019 20:42:13
I really don't understand all of the negativity about Lovren. I know he's had a few bad games but he's a very good defender.

If we get an injury or two and he gets into the team, I'd put money on him doing a Matip and keeping his place (injuries permitting, of course) .

When he gets his chance, he knows what he needs to do to keep his place. He's seen it with his own eyes.

{Ed025's Note - hmmmm..

7.) 30 Aug 2019 21:35:49
One thing that has been clear is lovren looks much better beside VVD, as does matip and Gomez. Yet matip and lovren are poor together. The key is when they have a leader, someone to organise and talk beside them they look much better. Lovren and matip don't show those qualities.

Like Ferdinand and vidic were such a good pair as they complimented each other's strenghts.

Henchoz looked good with hyypia leading but put henchoz beside matip for example and they would struggle.

You need the right pairing to suit your players strengths. Lovren and matip have had a much better performance level over the last 18 months with virg than anytime previous.

8.) 31 Aug 2019 23:46:28
For once I’m with Ed25 on this. Lovren is not a very good defender. He’s a decent 4th choice but one that you hope you never have to use.

9.) 02 Sep 2019 00:34:12
{Ed025's Note - hmmmm.

why hmmmm, what are you insinuating ed025 . He is a Liverpool player so must be very good . an earlier post put Matip as one of the best CBs in the world, Lovern is not far behind if not even better, world cup and champions league finalist . The red shirt automatically turns you into the best in the world, remember Djimi Traore, a champions league winner.

{Ed025's Note - you sound like redwolf roy, now i know your very tongue in cheek here but matip has done very well to be fair to him mate..

A very good morning to my fellow red brethren. I hope your all safe and healthy? Of course that goes to all the Ed's as well😁😁😁😁.


1.) 20 Jan 2021 09:06:56
Morning. Waking up to see us 4th isn't the best way to start the day.

2.) 20 Jan 2021 09:20:26
Bigger things in life than football. Very good friend of mine in a awful way with C. V. so that put things into a lot of perspective. When my 5 year old son came into the room and give me a hug then the world was all right for me👍😁👍😁.

3.) 20 Jan 2021 10:47:14
Wait until tonight, we could be 5th 🙈🤪.



18 Jan 2021 21:31:36
As Jimmy Greves once said"Its a funny old game"and he never said a truer word lad's.


1.) 19 Jan 2021 09:57:30
Nope, not finding it funny at the mo.

2.) 19 Jan 2021 10:27:44
It's funny watching folks get their knickers in a twist.
So many "experts" that could show Klopp how it's done.



18 Jan 2021 16:42:09
You know what lad's it's such a messed up season that if it ended now but with different team on top it wouldn't bother me.


1.) 18 Jan 2021 17:20:47
Why not Barry was we not allowed to claim the title, with fans not allowed, saying you don't care is an easy way out just enjoy some entertainment in these times, don't be such a sore loser.

2.) 18 Jan 2021 18:36:28
Yes Barry, same here mate, it wouldn't bother me in the least to be honest but I still believe we'll win it. A terrible season, one I stopped watching a while back now and won't be watching anymore until the fans are back properly. One of them seasons to be forgotton about, if we don't win it then so be it.

3.) 18 Jan 2021 18:42:55
Am sorry but am very competitive and I want to win and win everything!

4.) 18 Jan 2021 18:49:52
I wouldn’t call watching Liverpool play ‘entertainment’ over the past month, more like watching paint dry.

5.) 18 Jan 2021 19:08:06
I’ll be surprises if ManCity don’t win due to squad size and C.V. but hope it’s us. If not then anyone other than manunited, ManCity, Chelsea or Spurs ie Leicester 😂.

{Ed025's Note - how about everton 1jj?..

6.) 18 Jan 2021 20:17:37
Say no to drugs Eds25.

{Ed025's Note - i only take sleeping tablets ace, but i did not need them yesterday after watching your game mate.. :)

7.) 18 Jan 2021 21:08:45
Ed25 sorry you’re right mate I did forget a team - villa! 😂.

{Ed025's Note - well thats fair enough 1jj, after all they did whack one of the mediocre teams 7-2 earlier on in the season mate.. :)

8.) 18 Jan 2021 21:30:03
Stop poking the bear lad's😂.

{Ed025's Note - love it barry..

9.) 18 Jan 2021 22:26:19
Barry - I didn’t know id started poking bear lads? 😂.



17 Jan 2021 20:09:20
Fair play to the two lad's in defence who are playing out of position but what we need are goals and I haven't a clue where they are going to come from.


1.) 17 Jan 2021 20:37:47
Spot on Barry, for all my moaning regarding the situation, they played well today, defences were on top.

2.) 17 Jan 2021 20:38:48
Where is our next win coming from though? We look like we have lost the joy in ripping teams too bits and that's the worrying thing .
Bobby been getting away with the fake 9 thing for a while and 1 of the 3 used to bail us out but they all look shot.

3.) 17 Jan 2021 20:40:07
The key to it all is getting Matip back in defence with fabinho, then Henderson back in midfield. We are currently playing a patched up defence, which in turn has now seriously impacted the midfield and ultimately the forward line.
Robbo and Trent are not getting forward as much, due to concerns for the makeshift defence and midfield, so the understanding with the forwards has been lost. The whole team is short on confidence.

I have no worries whatsoever about our forwards as Mane and Salah are world class. I know it's a cliche but 'form is temporary, class is permanent' and those 2 will be scoring and assisting soon enough.

As for the game, it was'nt great but I was sure Utd were going to score against our patched up defence, so a good point earned in my view. Could have been worse if Utd showed more ambition rather than just counter attacks.
As I said, without Matip giving us a stable defensive partnership with Fabinho, we will continue to struggle as a whole team.

4.) 17 Jan 2021 20:58:03
Bobby's a poor man's son. Glad he's getting found out.

5.) 17 Jan 2021 21:00:12
I don’t buy this, Greenflash, but I’ll happily be proven wrong. I’m seeing Robbo, Trent and the forwards getting into the same types of positions. They’re just not executing. Robbo in particular had some great positions today but scuffed one cross into the side netting when it was begging for a quality ball across the six yard box, skied another one with a rash shot and wasn’t played in by Firmino for arguably the best chance of the three.

That’s nothing to do with our centre backs or what position Henderson is playing.

6.) 17 Jan 2021 21:09:00
Greenflash. Hendo played in midfield against Wba and Newcastle. If that’s the key what went wrong in those games mate?

7.) 17 Jan 2021 21:17:45
Most posters worried about the defence but it is the forwards that are costing us points almost every game recently. Fabs has been brilliant this season.

8.) 17 Jan 2021 21:37:29
If matip is fit I’d play him and Philips v Burnley. Our Fabinho back in midfield. Their attack is the slowest in the planet and Philips is great in the air.

9.) 17 Jan 2021 23:12:09
JK23, Liverpool are simply going through a bad patch due to key injuries, as shown by the WBA and Newcastle results you mention.

Look at Liverpools results over the last 3 years with Hendo in midfield and a settled back 4, rather than select 2 games over the xmas period.
I would prefer to see Hendo in midfield and Matip in defence, which is their natural positions.

West Brom equalised after Matip went off injured, but I accept the front 3 are not firing at the moment, but it won't last. let's see how many goals Salah and Mane score once the side is more settled again.

Put it into perspective, would any Liverpool fan swap Salah and Mane for any other forwards in the premier league, as I definitely would not.
This criticism of the front 3 will soon be forgotten when they start scoring, then all the posts will be swooning over how world class and irreplacable our forwards are.
We need a settled back 4 and players in their correct positions, and the results will follow.

10.) 18 Jan 2021 08:45:45
Greenflash I 100% want to see Hendo back in midfield with Fab. But I don’t see how Hendo and fab in midfield improve Salah and Manes confidence. And they won’t improve Bobby's goal numbers. I don’t have to pick 2 games you can see that over the last 3 seasons mate.

11.) 18 Jan 2021 10:35:28
RR is correct here. We are getting into the same positions we are getting into offensively. We are just not making the right decisions; That was laid bare yesterday on MOTD where Shearer highlighted all the good positions we got into in the first half vs Utd BUT due to poor decision making and inability t make the required run or pass, is what cost us in those situations. The press was actually very good in the first half and we won the ball high on several occasions. It is execution that is killing us. As for the defence, we have one of the best defences in the PL this season so we CAN defend with VVD, Gomez and Matip out.

At this point, it is not going to matter who we have in midfield. If our strikers are short of confidence and cannot execute the game plan when the chances arrive then this is what you get.



17 Jan 2021 07:30:35
Guten morgan Ed001 are we feeling confident for later today?


{Ed001's Note - that's something I never do. Always expect the worst, then if it happens you are prepared, and if it doesn't then you are happy.}

1.) 17 Jan 2021 07:48:30
I'll go with that then.

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed we will be celebrating later and not saying to ourselves, "see told you it would happen".}

2.) 17 Jan 2021 09:58:48
For the first time in 3 years I am a worried against Man U at home. Play to the level we know we can and we beat them and comfortably. The problem is we don’t seem to know which Liverpool will turn up these days and a draw does nothing for us.

3.) 17 Jan 2021 10:34:29
I had a dream, 2-1 to us, believe.

4.) 17 Jan 2021 10:41:36
Hi Ed 01. Who is better Thiago or Fernandes?

{Ed001's Note - it depends on how you see it. Bruno is more important to his team but Thiago has proved himself over a period of time to be just about the best around. But he has not been able to show it this season.}

5.) 17 Jan 2021 11:17:46
Ed the worst is we beating them 1-0.Anything else cannot be prepared for🙄. Atleast I cannot. Hope I donot have a heart attack post the game.

6.) 17 Jan 2021 11:31:45
They play diff positions, OP. I see Bruno as more of a Lampard type midfielder who plays more of a support striker role. Thiago is just and all round CM who is great in CM and from deep. One of the cerebral footballers I have ever seen cos everything he does is calculated and sometimes even, pre-calculated cos he sees what others don’t see before it happens. A true baller.

7.) 17 Jan 2021 14:59:09
If we line up with Matip and Fab in the centre of defence and Henderson, Gini and Thiago in midfield we’ll have a very good chance of winning, United haven’t really been tested on this run they’ve gone on, so we can derail them like we did with Spurs.

Really why is that Ed0666?


{Ed0666's Note - I think it’s telling that he hasn’t been used as sub the last few games (not first sub anyway) especially as we didn’t have an array of offensive options off the bench. Klopp won’t replace a low on confidence Bobby with a ready to go Taki speaks volumes to me. Also when he has played he’s not really shone. I would love him to take his opportunity as I think first and foremost he’s a nice guy and a talented footballer. He’s always making himself busy and causing mischief in the box. I hope I’m wrong and he gets his chance against Burnley tommorow.
