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..

17 May 2022 15:45:00
Any word on how Van den Berg is getting on with his loan?


1.) 17 May 2022 16:19:31
I think he’s just about keeping up with his payments Barry but he has his mum and dad as his guarantor just in case 🤣.

{Ed014's Note - 🤦‍♂️🤣🤣

2.) 17 May 2022 16:48:47
Ha ha! Old Larry took one there! Did make me chuckle.

3.) 17 May 2022 17:02:38
I knew I should have stayed in bed today 🤦.

4.) 17 May 2022 17:19:31
There is little interest in Van den Berg's loan, then?

5.) 17 May 2022 17:44:25
You just had to join in Rigsby 😃.

6.) 17 May 2022 18:30:29
You'll be paying for that one forever Barry.

7.) 17 May 2022 22:13:43
I heard he wants to re-finance. 🤷🏽‍♂️.

8.) 17 May 2022 22:27:40
From a quick Google. Preston fans love him, hard working good on the ball he’s started 50 games in all comps and 43 out of 46 in the league think he is in the top 10 or 11 for most minutes in the league. He played RB/ RWB for the first half of the season up and down the right side constantly. second half of the season he was switch to the right hand side of a back 3. Preston want him back for another season, pep has said he’ll be back with us for pre season and for from there maybe a CB moves on this year and he comes in and fills the space and covers RB by all accounts looks like a brilliant loan spell for the young lad.

9.) 17 May 2022 23:05:35
Thank you very much Kloppers at least someone with a bit of intelligence 😁👍.

10.) 18 May 2022 06:51:48
Nice one Kloppers thanks for that 👍😁.

11.) 18 May 2022 16:01:40
I hope he can build on his experience but I think a lot depends on Gomez. Currently VVD, Matip and Konate are the 1st 3 choices with Gomez covering RB and CB. The young lad from Aberdeen or Bradley can provide RB cover so if Gomez wants to leave does Sepp stay as 4th choice? It will be an interesting couple of years ahead to see how Klopp works his magic transitioning the old guard to the new.



11 May 2022 11:24:59
Ed014 how are you today?


{Ed014's Note - good thanks Barry and yourself, sorry for the late reply, I actually had to do some work! 🤦‍♂️🤣

1.) 11 May 2022 16:16:18
I understand Ed we all get caught at some stage. I'm looking forward to Saturday go out for a few bevvies and hopefully lift the cup but Mo's form is a tad concerning but I'm delighted with Luis Daiz contribution to the team.

{Ed014's Note - I hope it’s a great weekend for you mate, you’ve got to much quality for that mob and Klopp isn’t going to make the mistake Pep did gifting them the Champions League.

2.) 11 May 2022 17:06:47
Ed014, you are an Arsenal fan, right?
How do you assess your season? Certainly the forward line seems pretty exciting and quality.
However, I can't stand Ramsdale. He is just so annoying. And I would let that pass if he was among the best in his position, but he's nowhere close. I think he should focus on his game more, but at same time maybe every team needs that sort of player. Anyway you seem to be heading vin the right direction, though I am just not fully convinced by Arteta.

{Ed014's Note - yes mate I am and I’m not convinced either, I see lots of good stuff but some that still concerns me.

I like the squad, it’s young and hopefully will get better, we need upgrades for sure.

Personally don’t dislike Ramsdale, he can be a div but has the attitude of wanting to win. I think he’ll improve too.

I’m really hoping Arteta brings Saliba back into the squad because he is class. We obviously need a quality striker, an upgrade on Xhaka and better back up full backs.

Need Arteta to get better overall but he’s learning, I like that he’s off loaded problems unlike United who seemed intent on keeping all theirs.

3.) 11 May 2022 22:07:17
In fairness Ed014 Utd are doing a fantastic job both on and off the pitch and long may it continue brother 👍😃.

{Ed014's Note - there’s not many that can say they’ve achieved mediocrity on a shoe string budget but they’ve smashed it out of the park!



08 May 2022 09:55:27
Good afternoon Ed001😃 Should we be concerned by Mo and Jota lack of regular goals?


{Ed001's Note - no, all players go through spells when they score and spells when they don't.}

1.) 08 May 2022 10:27:01
But you can see that something has effected Mo's confidence. Could be the AFCON defeat, his contact or lack of goals who knows mate.

2.) 08 May 2022 10:40:58
I love Mo and I’m very much in the boat that we need to keep him with a new contract. But I think it’s time he stopped talking off the pitch and did his talking on the pitch again.

3.) 08 May 2022 12:43:05
Salah has never made it a secret the Champions League is his preference over the PL. If he wants to exact his "revenge" on Real Madrid it won't happen on his current form. Hopefully he gets out of this slump asap.

4.) 08 May 2022 13:21:37
Slump? some people are hard to please.

5.) 08 May 2022 13:40:03
We will come good again when it matters of that I have no diubt.

6.) 08 May 2022 15:29:36
I could have sworn Salah bagged a brace vs Utd but I guess I must have imagined it.

7.) 08 May 2022 15:54:21
Salah’s all around game has been below his admittedly high set standards since the turn of the year, and he has been decidedly less dynamic for some time prior to that as well. I’m not saying he has been poor, not at all but he isn’t taking the game to opponents anymore like he used to. Diaz is playing like I expect Salah to. He doesn’t even try to take a man on hardly anymore for some reason. I mean people may not like Jota all that much losing the ball so much but at least he is trying to make things happen. I’m probably just having a rant and moan as I’m p. ed off at the draw yesterday….

8.) 08 May 2022 16:09:51
It would have been helpful to have Bobby on the bench yesterday. I thought our attacking play was a bit erratic at times and we could really have used Bobby's connectome skills. He's also got an excellent record versus Spurs.

Oh well. Onto the next one.

9.) 08 May 2022 16:41:29
Can we please not criticise Salah. Jota and Naby are there to be slagged off so can we all stick to the narrative please 🙄.

10.) 08 May 2022 16:51:18
Salah before AFCON 16 PL goals and 9 assists. Salah after AfCON 6 PL goals and 3 assists. His CL stats before AFCON 7 goals no assists and after AFCON 1 goal no assists. When do we say it's not a slump by his standards?

11.) 08 May 2022 18:37:02
Just in the lack of goals by Salah anyone else got the feeling it's 0-0 2v1 90th minute champions League final. Salah got the ball 25 yards out he's running towards goal getting closer can slip Mane in for a simple goal or shoot. He chooses to try and curl it goes straight into keepers mid drift and arms. Keeper hoofs it up field and they score?

12.) 08 May 2022 21:37:38
IN, I bet you Salah passes to Mane. Why? He himself has said he wants to win the CL again so I see him passing to Mane to seal the win. Just my take.

13.) 09 May 2022 16:02:49
UN- I get the feeling Salah would shoot in that situation. He says all the right things when interviewed but currently during game it seems he is so desperate to be the main man again he would want the glory for himself. I am not criticising. That selfishness is what has made him so good during his time with us. It’s just not really working at the minute. He isn’t drifting inside into goal scoring positions as much as he used to this along with his diminishing pace is starting to really tell. I hope he is just knackered from the amount of games. Mane has adapted his game to counter his diminishing pace and it is telling with his recent performances and goals. I hope Salah stays and regains his form but if the last few months since the turn of the year are anything to go by if we sell him it may not be as big a deal as we would have previously thought. The team is still performing whilst Salah is not I am afraid. As I say hopefully he’s just fatigued.
