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..

03 Aug 2021 12:42:32
Ed001 recently posted a fantastic article on Sir Bob and I asked the question how ruthless could Sir Bob be when it came to letting players go i. e. loss of pace, age, injury history etc etc. Ed001 said he didn't like it but for the good of the team and for progression it was done no matter who the player was. So it got me thinking what would Sir Bob do about our brilliant captain Jordan Henderson? Not long left on his contract, not a great injury record but a fantastic player. A brilliant leader on and off the pitch. So what would he do lad's🤷‍♂️.


1.) 03 Aug 2021 12:58:31
Hard to say, back in Sir Bob's day a squad of 15 would see you through the season but now with larger squads I would guess he would not be so ruthless, back then he probably had to be. Different times.

2.) 03 Aug 2021 13:02:41
I think he would have got rid Barry. Jimmy Case would be a good example of how ruthless he could be. I know he wasn’t club captain but he still had a good few years left when he was sold to Brighton.

3.) 03 Aug 2021 13:16:04
Well my feeling is Bob would let him go lad's sorry and all as he would be.

4.) 03 Aug 2021 13:30:53
You relaly think Bob would have given James milner a new contract?

5.) 03 Aug 2021 13:44:33
Let’s be perfectly honest now, Sir Bob wouldn’t have Jordan Henderson in his Squad let alone his captain.
Infact I reckon he’d get rid of the majority of the squad bar about 3 players. And then probably win his 4th European Cup.

6.) 03 Aug 2021 13:52:33
Milner now that you mention it probably not.

7.) 03 Aug 2021 13:52:34
He’d get rid when there was a replacement lined up Barry.
He was ruthless, yes, but not stupid.

8.) 03 Aug 2021 14:00:10
Bob gives Milner a contract if he deems him contributing to the club's success. Milner provides leadership and exp plus fitter in his mid 30s than rooney at 28. Must be your new target

Dont you remember the times Hendo/ Gini was your target while gagging for Kovacic. Time to reflect perhaps.

9.) 03 Aug 2021 14:22:04
Always a replacement ready to step in Juicer.

10.) 03 Aug 2021 14:45:44
Milner hardly plays and doesn’t contribute much to the team on the pitch. The issue is it takes a place in the squad which either block a youngster or a new signing.
Now regarding physique, Matip plays like 5 games a season and he still gets contract.
It’s called poor squad management.
Bob wouldn’t have given a contract to either. No doubt.



02 Aug 2021 11:38:17
A very good morning all from the recently purchased new family home Bazza Towers 🏰🙋‍♂️.


1.) 02 Aug 2021 11:58:41
Congratulations Baz.

{Ed025's Note - well done barry, good luck in your new home mate...and may i say the same to everton..

2.) 02 Aug 2021 12:21:47
Thank you Jimmy. Ed025 I really appreciate the 1st part mate😃. Oh if I may can I advertise for a mote cleaner and alligator feeder. Wages to be negotiated 🐊.



18 Jul 2021 17:31:28
RIP George Curtis what a cup final that was in 87.I was so happy for Coventry that day. Wee Mickey Ginn had a hell of a game that day and as for the diving header brilliant!


1.) 18 Jul 2021 22:09:01
Keith Houchen scored the diving header. Lloyd McGrath did a job of Glenn Hoddle too.

2.) 18 Jul 2021 23:14:12
Bennett with the second and Mabbout OG and of course they had big Oggy in goals.



12 Jul 2021 08:16:34
Good morning all🙋‍♂️Any sore English head's today?


{Ed025's Note - heads ok barry...but heart is broken.. :)

1.) 12 Jul 2021 08:41:30
Not sore just disappointed. But we have suffered worse, the last 18 months have proved that! So we go again and remember the journey which we definitely enjoyed and be proud of the lads efforts.

2.) 12 Jul 2021 09:07:36
If I was English today I wouldn't be holding any inquests into last night. They are reserved for going out at the group stages or 1st knockout round. I'd be laying no blame at the 3 young lads, who had the balls to put themselves forward, door either. Got caught by scoring too early and not knowing whether to stick or twist. Beaten by a team with immense know how on the lottery that is penalties. Heads up and be proud of your team.

3.) 12 Jul 2021 09:31:19
I think an inquest should still be held mate. Yes they done well but I think to play that brand of football with those players is criminal. Also the supposed leaders in the squad who sat back and watched the youngster take the decisive penalty. Felt gutted for Saka at the end poor kid.

4.) 12 Jul 2021 09:46:32
Agree with all of the comments here - a very broken heart. The tension was unbelievable. As with most parents, we let our kids (11 and 9) stay up to watch the final, and we certainly weren't going to be able to send them to bed when it went to extra time and penalties! My 9 year old just started sobbing at the end - that's when I realised how much the tension affected everyone.

I must admit, I am starting to believe that Southgate just isn't quite at the right level to lead the boys all the way. This bunch of players is better than the 'golden generation' of the 2000s. However, I do believe that the national coach should come from the nation they are coaching, and I'm not sure who else could take over? The best I can hope is that Southgate can add to his coaching staff, as he does seem to consult a lot with his coaches during a game, and add in someone who is a serial winner and knows good game management.

Having got Italy on the backfoot, we should have pressed our advantage so much more in the first half. I was so disappointed to see Italy pressing, pressing, pressing like angry wasps (reminding me of us in our pomp! ) and our players stepping back and letting the Italians run at us. Even 3-0 down, Italy wouldn't have given in. I did call them some pretty bad names during the game because of their cynical fouls, not unlike Ramos in 2018, but they know how to win. Summed up by the worst of the lot - Chiellini's drag back of Saka. But he knew exactly what he was doing and in that moment, I feared it was lost.

However, all credit to the boys for making the final, and hopefully they can go one step further next season.

And to the keyboard cowards racially abusing the boys who missed, you are a disgrace and I hope your parents take your devices away.

5.) 12 Jul 2021 11:37:21
yep totally disappointed, but they did really well to get to the final but they just didn't grasp the chance, i thought Kane was poor throughout the tournament. any one can miss a penalty they have to be admired to stand up and take one at that age. i did think the Jorginhio foul should have been a red card and the Chiellini ne on Saka the same, but apart from that Italy were the best team i think.

6.) 12 Jul 2021 08:52:52
What did you make of the penalty-taking decisions ed? Obviously its easy in hindsight but I thought Southgate was just trying to be too clever. Sterling, Grealish and even Henderson surely would have handled the situation a little better. Even Luke Shaw, who was probably England's player of the tournament. Feel sorry for the young English lads who missed. Tough way to lose. Italy were probably the tournament's best team so well deserved.

{Ed025's Note - as we know macko penalties are a lottery, the guys who took them must have put themselves forward and so i dont have a problem with the picks, these guys are playing at the highest level and im sure that in training they scored quite frequently, the last thing you want is a player who doesn,t fancy it taking one mate..

7.) 12 Jul 2021 12:03:36
@zedficus - it’s not just young kids who don’t know better, the racism is coming from fully grown adults who are bigots looking for any reason to spew their bile. Name, shame, and prosecute them, only way it’ll be curbed.

{Ed025's Note - im with you seano..

8.) 12 Jul 2021 14:53:05
Totally agree with that approach Seano. I know there's going to be a lot of vile adults who also love the protection that a keyboard presents them with.

I hope they are prosecuted, that's the only way we're going to tackle the wider problem of social media abuse. Looking back at how horrible it was for black players in the 70s and 80s, can you imagine throwing social media into that mix too?!

9.) 12 Jul 2021 16:46:49
As far as I know, Southgate picked who took the penalties. He brought on two specifically for it. I don’t know if sancho is known for his pen taking ability? Is saka?

Since he had the deciding penalty as a 19 year old, that’s a tremendous lack of foresight from someone who knows what it means to miss one in a big game, especially since saka had a poor game.

Grealish, stones, shaw, Phillips, Sterling should have all been in front of saka and sancho imo. I know it’s easy to say after the fact but you could see it from a mile away. Rashford miss was particularly ugly because it’s that stupid thing his mate pogba does 🤢.

Disappointed but best team won on reflection, and I don’t see us getting a better chance than that for a long time. Qatar won’t be a favourable environment at all, this was.



11 Jul 2021 09:37:14
A very good morning all🙋‍♂️.


{Ed025's Note - morning barry..

1.) 11 Jul 2021 10:36:37
Morning Barry. You know if the Mbappe deal is close to being done? On a serious note what do you make of the midfield rumours. Saul, Bissouma or Sanches. Dream for me would be Saul but financially not sure how it would work. Bissouma is a fantastic player but we face competition for his signature. Also, he is a known Arsenal fan so that might sway it for him. Sanches, well I will keep it short and it’s a no for me.

2.) 11 Jul 2021 11:02:44
Morning bazza,

I went to watch Wales vs Argentina in the rugby yesterday and am slightly worse for wear today 😂

Just read the boys are off to Austria training camp tomorrow, be good to see how Virgil and Gomez go over the next couple of weeks, and weather they do full team training or not. Can’t wait for the new season now.

3.) 11 Jul 2021 11:42:59
virgil be like a new signing. Him and konate be best pairing in the league this season.

4.) 11 Jul 2021 12:54:31

KM and myself had a few pink gin's last night whilst ironing out the last few details of his impending arrival Alonso. As for the midfield Saul is out of reach financially. I remember Sanches from his time at Swansea so based on that NO. So that leaves Bissouma hopefully mate🙏.

5.) 11 Jul 2021 13:33:32
I’m fresh as a daisy now bazaar cheers 😂

I’m with you, I know sanches was only a youngster at Swansea, but he was awful when the club needed him to be better. I haven’t studied Bissouma, who would you compare him too? What would he bring to us?

6.) 11 Jul 2021 13:51:35
Haha love it Barry. Im with you on Bissouma though, hopefully we can get that deal over the line. If anyone can do it Edwards the magician can. Im looking forward to the new season. VVD and Gomez will be like new signings, add to that Konate who is a beast and our defence will return to fort knox.
