Ed002 I notice down the page you suggested the club are not looking at the likes of Trindade, Phillips etc because of how well Endo has done. Do you think this is the case now then in regards to us looking at another DM/ CM player?


{Ed002's Note - I still think the club will look to a CM/DM player like Thuram or Manu Kone.}

1.) 05 Jan 2024 22:16:46
This month eds? Rumours that we have submitted a bid for Inacio. Any truth or usual bs? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - There has been an offer but not from Liverpool.}

2.) 06 Jan 2024 07:12:16
Just out of curiosity Ed’s out of the 2 mentioned who would you say would suit Liverpool better .

{Ed002's Note - I think perhaps Thuram.}

3.) 06 Jan 2024 08:13:34
Hi eds. Any truth in the rukour that we have submitted a bid for inacio? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - There has been an offer but not from Liverpool.}

4.) 06 Jan 2024 08:34:09
Good morning ed002….
Would you say the above players mentioned will most likely be target in the summer as apposed to this January transfer window?


{Ed002's Note - It is difficult to predict timescales.}

5.) 06 Jan 2024 08:41:40
Who is the better player from these two?

6.) 06 Jan 2024 11:13:16
Just my own personal and honestly very limited opinion on the subject because I ve only watched then play the U21 euros. Completely fair to say it's not a fair assesment in a just a couple of games viewing but I'd offer my thoughts anyway.

Thuram pulled off some brilliant dribbles and looks the part on the ball. The massive downside from this tournament is he was a floater similar to Grav. Did not get stuck in to the game. He didn't seem afraid to tackle but very little energy. Rarely stopped attacks as he just wasn't there. So few touches on the ball too. I watched 3 games to watch him and Kone only and I still barely noticed him. He did get criticized however for his performance in the euros and his coach did say he was carrying an injury. So likely far better usually. I'd be a little wary of his transfer based on this tournament. I do think there's an exceptional talent in there if he works hard on the pitch. That's the rub for me. Can Klopp get him to play with the energy of a prime Fabinho. I'm never going to expect a Szobozlai/ Jones energy wise but he ll need to show more than this tournament. Without watching him non injured, I just can't be sure how he normally plays. Be interested to hear the opinion of someone who has watched him in ligue 1.

Kone has everything bar pace. It's a bit odd to say because having watched highlights I thought he was going to be a pacy player. If anyone runs quick, they are past him. I think he is a really good player as a number 8 for other teams but the pace is too big of a thing for me in Klopps system. If your 8 you need pace to press. 6 pace to cover ground. I would not pick him on that basis myself but he is a proper footballer to be fair. He played well before he got injured.

7.) 06 Jan 2024 11:14:33
Oh and sorry, if I had to pick from the two I'd go Thuram.

8.) 06 Jan 2024 11:45:29
Any intention Ed do you think of Liverpool to match the bid or make a bid of our own?
Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Unless something has changed Liverpool would need to pay his full release clause in a single payment and persuade the player to move.}

9.) 06 Jan 2024 11:54:38
I can’t see Nice selling to us given that the owner of Nice also being part owner of United. We’d be better making a move for Kone.

10.) 06 Jan 2024 12:19:54
Cheers Ed. I’m a big fan of Inacio. Think he’s exactly what we need.
So last questions. Is it an English club who made the bid? A rival perhaps?

{Ed002's Note - YEs, Arsenal.}

11.) 06 Jan 2024 12:57:07
Thank you Ed!

12.) 06 Jan 2024 14:19:14
That is because he isn’t a DM in the first place @Davey. He is another ball carrier. Kone is an out and out DM. We should juts stick to a holding mid and not another who can do all.

13.) 06 Jan 2024 16:06:46
I wouldn't say Kone is an out and out DM either and I'd still pick Thuram out of the two anyway as he has pace and far higher ceiling. His skill level is impressive.

I'd easily take others above him and I ve already nailed my colours to the mast on the player I would choose Yusuf Fofana.

I would also love Valverde if he was anyway possible. Think he would be a magnificent Klopp type player.

{Ed002's Note - Neither are out and out DM. That is not what the club are looking for right now. Valverde would be very expensive.}

14.) 06 Jan 2024 17:06:20
Yusuf Fofana would be a good shout. Can play 6 or 8 so meets that flexible role that we’re looking for.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has zero interest in him.}

15.) 06 Jan 2024 19:06:04
Cheers for reply ed, been anything new on either player that you are aware of?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City are maybe open to pushing for Thuram.}

16.) 06 Jan 2024 19:08:05
Thanks Davey for your insight into the two players have never seen either play so really appreciate a bit of info. You obviously watch lots of footy.

17.) 06 Jan 2024 19:14:49
Kone would be my preference of the two. However, I’d be nervous about his injury record.



12 Dec 2023 18:17:01
Ed's do you know the situation with regards to Macalisters injury? He had a bad cut that required stitches and was a double t for the utd game. I've just seen images off him with a leg brace on and oxygen mask. I'm thinking the injury is more than just a cut to the knee mate?


{Ed025's Note - as far as i know DTD he was due to out for 15 days, now speculation is saying he may be out until the new year mate..

1.) 12 Dec 2023 19:43:30
Every time a player gets injured during a game, we just leave them on until the injury is too bad to continue. They even did it with Diaz after he had done his knee. It’s a massive recurring issue for me.

2.) 12 Dec 2023 20:59:25
It looked like he was having fluid drained off his knee Mark.

3.) 12 Dec 2023 21:39:33
That’s a blast from the past @Mark - it’s nearly been two years since the medical team were caught n the firing line.

Which players have the club left on the pitch with injuries that required them to be taken away from?

Would you be willing to players n claims for compensation by the players on the grounds of (medical) negligence on the part of the club?

4.) 13 Dec 2023 11:57:15
I think people are getting carried away by the social media posts showing drains, oxygen masks and compression boots. More likely he is trying his best to be fit for the weekend than him being out for an extended period.



31 Aug 2023 19:25:25
Ed002 wanted your thoughts on Gravenberch mate so you think it's a good signing for us that's fits in well with our system? I am pleased we have him looking forward to him starting.


{Ed002's Note - I think he is an excellent signing. Sadly many supporters don’t seem happy.}

1.) 31 Aug 2023 19:54:05
I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do. At 21 there’s a lot of room for growth so I’m positive about the signing. Think it’s turned into a reasonable Window for Liverpool, though a shame the Lavia/ Caicedo shambles overshadowed everything.

2.) 31 Aug 2023 19:55:55
Extremely high potential, will look like a snip if he can reach it.

{Ed025's Note - don’t bank on it DK..

3.) 31 Aug 2023 20:06:31
Agree with you Daretodream and Ed002, am excited with this personally. Everyone is entitled to their opinion of course ??‍♂️ but we have reinforced the area we needed to so am happy.

Let’s see if there are any more surprises tomorrow ?.

4.) 31 Aug 2023 20:32:57
Delighted with the signing with RG once we get it over the line. It’s not done yet. At his age and the experience he has he can do very well with us.

Whether we sign a defender or not, I feel our squad will be complete with this addition.

5.) 31 Aug 2023 20:33:09
He has took far less players to great heights. Belief and direction.

Gravenberch has great fundamentals. It's his head. He's got so much time in front of him. I think Klopps going to have him on fire.

6.) 31 Aug 2023 20:11:18
I think you are using the word ‘supporters’ in its very loosest sense there Ed.

7.) 31 Aug 2023 20:29:37
Ed2 we are only happy when we're premature mate.

{Ed002's Note - As a Liverpool fan you can expect to be premature.}

8.) 31 Aug 2023 20:56:10
My problem with this signing is who is he going to bench, because he is complaining of playing time, and I doubt much will change @ lfc.

9.) 31 Aug 2023 21:24:35
@LFL, we have seen lots of players get injured in the last two to three years. At the moment Thiago, Bajcetic and Jones are injured. We need depth in midfield. Gravenberch can cover a number of options for us and will get game time. It’s a bit like when Cody signed. There was concern he wouldn’t get a game too. He’s turning out to be not too bad.

10.) 31 Aug 2023 21:34:05
Fight for his place and earn and start in the team. Looked a big talent at Ajax. Sure Klopp can get the best out of him. Big, energetic and athletic. Like having 2 Szobos.

11.) 31 Aug 2023 21:35:13
Then it’s up to him to work hard and get in the team LFL. That will push others around him to work hard too.

Perhaps at Munich he felt it didn’t matter how hard he worked he just wasn’t getting his chance.

Klopp will definitely give him that.

12.) 31 Aug 2023 22:25:44
We wanted an overhaul of the midfield.

Out Hendo, Fabs, Millie, Ox, Naby and Arthur
In Macca, Dom, Endo and Gravenberch

If you factor in Thiago, Curtis and Elliot we have gone from 9 players last year (although three hardly or didn’t play) to 7 this year. If Thiago plays the number of games he usually does the other 6 will get more than enough game time. Also worth noting that the average age of the midfield last season was 28.6, this season it’s 24.7, despite Thiago and Endo being 32 and 30 respectively.

We got the midfield overhaul.

With Nat gone (albeit on loan) let’s hope we can bring a left sided defender (fingers crossed Hincapie) as our final day surprise.

13.) 01 Sep 2023 00:11:41
Personally don’t think Gravenberch is what we need as I think we need a double tough SOB defensive midfielder, BUT, he’s young, he wants to come here, he has a point to prove and he’s considered a big talent by some. He also doesn’t have injury issues which is a relief. He’s on a blank slate and hope he shows what he’s capable of. Good luck Ryan and welcome to Anfield.

14.) 01 Sep 2023 00:33:43
Complained about game time because he only started 3 games last season. I’d be disappointed if a player was happy with that. Big talent wants the chance to play. He’s hungry it’s a great signing and the Liverpool squad is looking fierce. Get the deal done. sobo macca endo gravenberch jones bajcetic Thiago. Good work.

15.) 01 Sep 2023 04:51:35
Someone’s going to have to explain what this “big talent” looks like.

He’s bang average in everything and reminds me of a Dutch Carlton Palmer.

I think we’ve signed a dud based on the “Ajax” connection. There’s a reason he’s not getting his game.

16.) 01 Sep 2023 05:03:47
I think for the price, and his potential, it’s a good signing. If he knuckles down and puts in the work he can reach the very top.

17.) 01 Sep 2023 05:22:52
I think I'll trust Klopp Ron mate, let's see how he gets on b4 you write him off shall we.

18.) 31 Aug 2023 21:30:04
Ed025, don’t bank in it? Meaning what mate? I’m assuming you don’t see the potential with Gravenberch like you do with nearly all of our players right back to when you said Pickford was better or equal to Allison.

{Ed025's Note - im just saying dont expect miracles from Gravenbirch DTD, i dont think he even started a game for Bayern mate who are not the force they once were in a pretty poor Bundesliga, obviously Klopp sees something in him otherwise you would not have paid over twice the price they paid for him last season, i could be wrong of course but that hasn,t happened since 1978 mate.. :)

19.) 01 Sep 2023 08:00:50
You're also forgetting Bajetic WDW. some player and he brings the average age down.

20.) 01 Sep 2023 08:58:14
Bajetic has been on the bench the last two games so he’s obviously over his injury and just waiting for match minutes.

21.) 01 Sep 2023 09:50:31
@Szobo - I realised I’d forgotten him after I hit the ‘send’ butto. Another youngster will bags of potential. To be honest I really like the look of our midfield and attacking options now.

22.) 01 Sep 2023 10:30:11
Ron, I find your lack of faith disturbing.

The Dutch Carlton Palmer. Pmsl. ?.

23.) 01 Sep 2023 14:11:37
Tuchel said RG wasn't happy about limited opportunities due to the system he uses not be suited to RGs strengths.

We can play with the words etc and we obviously don't know 100% the story, but how Tuchel described the situation doesn't sound like a player just having a moan because he isn't being selected to play.



25 Aug 2023 19:51:09
Ed have we now had a bid rejected for Gravenberch?


{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

1.) 26 Aug 2023 09:55:36
Do you know the bid Ed and are we likely to go back again? Also, few rumours on Kone? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I would expect another bid - KOne remains a possibility, but there will be other options still.}

2.) 26 Aug 2023 10:09:53
Hi ed002,

Do you know if we are close to Bayerns valuation of him albeit the premium price?

And are we still talking to them to see if a compromise can be reached?

Thank you in advance and thank you for the great job you are doing!

{Ed002's Note - A compromise may well be possible - much will depend on offers from elsewhere.}

3.) 26 Aug 2023 11:18:39
Why do we persist on going after players who want elsewhere? Especially one that wants guaranteed playing time. Are Jorg and Klopp thick or what? Don't get the logic. Absolute shambles this window.



22 Aug 2023 18:35:30
Ed's any idea why we are looking at Andre taking into account his complications as you have explained mate? We need someone now like the next week.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware that Liverpoolare looking to sign him to join immediately - the club has already signed Endo.}

1.) 22 Aug 2023 21:27:50
Ed does andre have a release clause to leave immediately, even if so i ain't holding my breath.

{Ed002's Note - It is rather more complicated than that as I have explained.}

2.) 22 Aug 2023 22:00:05
I'd hate it if we lost a player to the Saudi league after our transfer window shut.

I don't see the urgent need for a CDM now that we have Endo and Baj coming back from injury.

3.) 23 Aug 2023 00:08:20
How would we lose a player to the Saudi league? We just say he's not for sale.

4.) 23 Aug 2023 01:25:56
well yeah obviously lol and so Fluminese should just say the same.

5.) 23 Aug 2023 07:59:03
Endo is for the here and now with Baj and Andre to learn on the job and be the future.

We want to get agreement in place for Andre to come in January before his price goes up. His club manager is also Brazil manager so It’s expected Andre will get a few more Brazil caps by Christmas and if his profile with national side rises then his value increases,

Andre is currently all for signing for LFC but he is willing to wait until January to help his club side in their Cupa Liberatores competition

The guys in Brazil say he is a pretty special talent.

6.) 23 Aug 2023 03:27:44
Question then for 002, how do you rate Endo?

{Ed002's Note - I know little of him I am afraid.}

Hi all, does anyone know what will likely happen with regards to a ban for Nunez and the rest of the players involved in the crowd the other night? I'm hoping it's international only and not domestic club football.


1.) 15 Jul 2024 11:08:04
I’m pretty sure it will only be a club ban if fifa intervene, deeming the Conmebol punishment to be too lenient
I have no idea why they should be subject to any kind of punishment though.

2.) 15 Jul 2024 11:10:47
It will depend. CONMEBOL are apparently investigating around 11 members of the Uruguay squad regarding the incident. Previous comparable incidents are the FA giving Dier a 4 match ban when he did it in the FA cup and Neymar got a 3 match ban last year from the FFF when he punched a fan after losing the French cup final. Following this precedent you would expect CONMEBOL to issue a 3 or 4 international match ban however, the investigation may highlight extenuating circumstances (protecting his family who were in danger due to the Colombian fans) and possibly even let him off with no or a lesser ban.

The other option is of course that FIFA wade in like they did with Suarez and give him a 4 month ban!

The short answer is, who knows.

3.) 15 Jul 2024 13:00:22
Neymar's ban, I think he deserved it. But this, I don't think any of them should be banned, or maybe at least just a few match bans.

The focus should be more on why the security wasn't present during that time.

4.) 15 Jul 2024 13:12:21
If he gets a ban, it could do us a favour. The club should enroll him in finishing school for however many months he’s off.

There, he can learn etiquette, stress management and expected behaviour while under pressure – and perhaps…. maybe just maybe they can finally teach him how to hit the back of the net!

5.) 15 Jul 2024 13:34:10
The Colombian fans are claiming that the Uruguay fans were the aggressors and have released footage from phones also.

Both sets of fans are blaming each other and claiming to be the innocent parties.

Its been claimed Nunez and the other players were defending their families so we'll have to see if throwing throwing punches whilst the families were stood on the pitch is deemed as necessary force.

I'm not sure how they are going to defend Nunez trying to throw a chair into the crowd as self Defence though. I'd imagine if he'd thrown that chair its just as likely to hit a innocent bystander as it is a troublemaker.

Its def not a good look though for the WC in 26 with fans from all over the world there.

6.) 15 Jul 2024 14:26:31
From what I have seen, we are dealing with a sport where violence isn’t exactly a stranger. In footballers you have the aggression on the pitch that can be defended, as the sport somewhat demands it - but more often than not we are dealing with violent conduct that, outside of football and for any average Joe, would in most cases end in arrest, sentencing, etc. I’m talking the headbutts, legbreakers, face elbows, so on and so on. It gets somehow rationalized, but the fact is, we are dealing with people who learn this behavior, put it to practice and are protected behind the sport. But then you see too many cases, where they take the violence outside the pitch, into their homes, onto the social structures where it doesn’t fit and never should.

In the case of Nunez, he is aggressive and violent, as we have already seen before. His head can go, and this is the case of many many footballers. No matter who were the aggressors in this case and whether it was to protect their family or not, violence should be struck down on with hard bans. That’s my opinion and nothing might change that. You will never have a good reason to headbutt someone, let alone throwing a chair into a crowd of people. So many of these players fit outside the norm, they are multi-millionaires, in some cases nearly untouchable (at least in their own eyes), and if violence like this gets rationalized, it only further adds to the already unfit behavior and conduct that a footballer might so often get away with. It is a toxic environment that should be improved, both in the stands within the supporters, but very much also for the players.

7.) 15 Jul 2024 15:28:39
Great post LBR. In total agreement.

It is easy to lose sight of the day-to-day impact of footballers behaviour on the outside world because their clubs constantly make excuses for them.

If you cannot face the time, don’t do the crime.

8.) 15 Jul 2024 17:37:47
I'm not sure there is much violence at the top end of football as we see or hear about in the grass roots game.

I think there is very much a difference between being headbutted and going head to head with someone.

I'd probably say its physically impossible to be headbutted and walk away without a single mark or scratch yet these elite footballers are left unmarked with every so called headbutt we see in the game, that's not me condoning it but i also don't like seeing these players go down holding their faces like they've been shot by an elephant gun.

I think for the good of the game they should start introducing HIA's because with the amount of times these players go down holding their faces for their own safety they shouldn't be allowed to play on.

9.) 15 Jul 2024 18:55:45
I think to call Nunez “aggressive and violent” is a bit much. Sure he plays aggressively or another word would be “competitively”. He’s no Vinny Jones, he’s no Roy Keane and he’s no Luis Suarez.

I’m not his number one fan, but let’s be fair to him.
We don’t know the whole story, let’s see what the authorities say.

I certainly agree he can lose his head, and it looks like he has here, but he’s not a violent thug going around looking for trouble. There seem to be mitigating circumstances which we don’t know the full extent of, but if your kids safety is being threatened, how professional would you be?

10.) 15 Jul 2024 19:09:26
But why are everyone's eyes focused just on Nunez? Does he waltz into the stands after every game and try to see if he would make it in the UFC?

I think you have to take a far more comprehensive approach to it and widen the circle because that's probably how you take care of the problem for the mid to long term. This was not an event that involved only one individual. Study the entire series and sequence of events and go after every miscreant; enough videos are more than available given stadium and fans cameras record everything. And then keep narrowing it down. Start with banning the city where it was held from hosting future competitions, then go down to the team or teams that participated in the ugly events with a ban of some kind, then the fans if identification is possible, and then finally the individuals. This is how you get rid of the problem (this has worked in the past) . Anybody thinking of starting something will already know there will be consequences.

11.) 15 Jul 2024 10:21:55
Daretodream based on what I have read last week, Darwin is not getting a ban of any sort for now. However, about 11 other players are still under investigation so let's wait and see.

In terms of the nature of the ban, it will be international as that was the setting the incident happened in. Also, that could very well be made global, as well. Again, let's wait and see.

12.) 16 Jul 2024 06:42:33
Cheers for clearing it all up Oli.



15 Jul 2024 08:39:39
Hi all, does anyone know what will likely happen with regards to a ban for Nunez and the rest of the players involved in the crowd the other night? I'm hoping it's international only and not domestic club football.


1.) 15 Jul 2024 09:32:16
Judging by the weekends events with Trump I’d say a little bit of aggro is nothing compared to the usual standards of violence that goes on there. Hopefully it’s swept under the carpet and nothing happens.

2.) 15 Jul 2024 09:42:26
There was trouble in the final and again apparently the players families were caught up in it. Considering the country is going to be a co-host of the WC, sounds like they really need to improve things ahead of the tournament.

{Ed001's Note - yeah McAllister had to rescue his parents outside the venue according to them.}

3.) 15 Jul 2024 09:53:24
Donald, Duck!

4.) 15 Jul 2024 11:19:09
Ed001, feels like CONMEBOL needs to put in far more stringent and drastic measures to nip these things in the bud. Stadium goers need to understand that such behaviour and actions will not be accepted. I'm thinking the bans of English teams from Europe, during the old "hooligans" days.

5.) 15 Jul 2024 11:33:05
The response needs to be bigger than punishing players who were reacting in a situation that was not under control.

I'm expecting nothing to happen to Nunez and others.

6.) 15 Jul 2024 12:07:06
St Etienne Amen, superb work there.

7.) 15 Jul 2024 09:43:49
I certainly hope so Viktor.



09 Jan 2024 17:44:06
Jesus Ed001 I see Trent now injured . Can we actually string a starting11 together at the minute. I hope to god this is t going to cost us.


{Ed001's Note - injuries are how youngsters get their chances. It is just a moment for Bradley to shine, like Trent did when he had to step up.}

1.) 09 Jan 2024 19:33:47
I see Virgil didn’t get a backbone for Christmas.

2.) 09 Jan 2024 19:41:22
Admire your confidence mate, I know what you mean but seems we get so many injury’s to add to the 2 away with there national sides. Bajetic and Thiago’s injury’s are crazy they will soon have been injured for a full year.

3.) 09 Jan 2024 20:22:07
What you on about Thunderbird? Do explain.

4.) 09 Jan 2024 20:24:40
Baj seems the most concerning.

5.) 09 Jan 2024 20:39:07
I think if we look at the players that are available to us then we have more than enough to cope. Confidence must be sky high. Just no more injuries please ?.

6.) 09 Jan 2024 21:12:14
Everyone who has been asked to step up/ in this season has been brilliant. I’m not worried.

7.) 09 Jan 2024 22:18:42
Does Bradley know how to invert?

8.) 09 Jan 2024 22:21:04
Surely robbo must be nearing a rerun in the next couple of weeks?

9.) 09 Jan 2024 22:51:33
It’s been said Robbo will be in team training by the end of the month. Thiago and Baj are still 6 weeks away from team training and that’s if it goes well. DS is better news should be back for Bournemouth.

10.) 09 Jan 2024 23:05:12
JB him and Greek Scouse back in training end of the month so poss Burnley or Arsenal.

11.) 10 Jan 2024 00:42:07
I'm not concerned either, I would've been if it was a month ago, beginning of December when we had a busy period but right now, we're just fine. Nothing to worry about.

Hahahaha behave Salah “nothing to worry about”. We’re getting an injury every week now. Rose tinted optimism again.

13.) 10 Jan 2024 07:08:50
How far away is Thiago from training?

14.) 10 Jan 2024 07:43:18
The stage is yours Connor Bradley
.1 big push tonight and 10 days off lots of effort and plenty rest and recovery before Bournemouth.

We will be fine.

15.) 10 Jan 2024 08:12:19
Well we aren’t getting injuries every week and the ones lately are minor injuries, not like Matip or Robbo for example. Trent and Szobo are out for a few weeks and we don’t play until 21st after tonight. Injuries are never ideal but it could certainly be a lot worse.

16.) 10 Jan 2024 08:18:40
Thiago still a month away from training and that’s if no setbacks. He is a waste of a massive massive wage.

17.) 10 Jan 2024 08:41:38
Nuts, was thinking it’d be timely for his return.

lol I think the “nothing to worry about” is more an acknowledgement of the trust in the team and that actually, win or lose, we have a squad worth backing.

18.) 10 Jan 2024 08:45:15
Baj is just growing - like Gordon before him. It’s brilliant that the club are looking after the kids and getting through their physical and mental maturation from boys to adults. I read somewhere that the Chelsea Academy is the best in England but the work that Liverpool are putting into the well-being of young talent is absolutely brilliant in my opinion.

19.) 10 Jan 2024 09:54:46
We’ll miss Trent for sure - not massively in the run of the mill stuff as Connor seems to be very switched on, but in terms of those game changing moments where Trent plays a pass no-one else in the league is capable of seeing.

To be fair though, Trent is fairly unique in the league for that though, so we’ll just have to adapt and rely more on the likes of Mac’s, Elliot or Szobo to break the lines.

I think we will be fine though, and hopefully we may even see CB step up to the point he gives us more flexibility to use Trent in midfield even more going forward….

20.) 10 Jan 2024 10:23:56
time for Beck and Bradley to step up. isn't this the point of the academy? We can't just stack our squad for when the inevitable injuries happen mid season. I am beyond excited to see how these young lads do with the opportunity!

21.) 10 Jan 2024 12:18:18
Time for the kids to grab their chance. Nothing more. Nothing less.

22.) 10 Jan 2024 13:48:29
Frode, we're not getting an injury every week are we? We had a busy December, 2 players had to leave and we have a few injuries it doesn't mean much when we have the squad depth we have. Are you not excited to see the youngsters stepping up? Call it rose tinted optimism all you want, it's about believing in the talent we have mate and you're speaking nonsense. Believe.

Ed's I see Carvalho is returning to us, do you see him going back out on loan or could he feature in the first teams plans?


{Ed001's Note - I think he will leave on permanent if possible. He has not got the right attitude.}

1.) 01 Jan 2024 10:31:09
Shame as I definitely think he has the potential to do well. Maybe not the very top level but could do a job if he applied himself. Not happening here though as he seems to have burnt bridges with Klopp.

2.) 01 Jan 2024 10:55:06
Morning Ed001. Is Carvalho’s attitude something which has developed since his time at Liverpool or was it there before and they hope to change it when they signed him, do you know?

{Ed001's Note - from what I can gather it is since signing. They do background checks to look for stuff like that and didn't notice any issues prior to signing him. He needs to stay off social media and put in more work on the training pitches. Trent was always having to be dragged off as he would stay behind practising free kicks etc. Carvalho needs to do that too, just put in that bit more and he will get more back out.}

3.) 01 Jan 2024 11:15:50
I did some work for him once and thought his attitude was weak and lazy.

4.) 01 Jan 2024 11:26:44
Thanks Ed001. Seems a shame. Hopefully he can put those things right as he’s obviously got ability.

5.) 01 Jan 2024 11:30:00
As soon as I saw Carvalho post some smelly stuff about him "just being a model" on social media when he went multiple games w/ o being picked last season, I knew his attitude was questionable and things may not work out for him. It's gotten way worse since then and frankly, I see no way for him here anymore.

6.) 01 Jan 2024 13:19:56
I think the fact he gave a rather abrupt interview after signing for Leipzig about not speaking to the coaches and just learning himself says all we need to know about what his issue is. Another example of a player getting to much to young and blowing a brilliant opportunity.

7.) 01 Jan 2024 14:20:10
I think a reset with a Championship club rather than a premier league club is just what he needs. He needs to play.

I don't think he fits into our squad/ system but I do think there's a future premier league starter there.

Not sure what level yet but with the right coach, I can see him make it.

Disappointing to hear he doesn't put the hard yards in training and extra training but I always thought he worked hard on the pitch on game day at least.

8.) 01 Jan 2024 15:04:29
I forgot he even existed ? sell him get some money/ wages in.

9.) 01 Jan 2024 15:37:01
Forrest bound for me.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

10.) 01 Jan 2024 16:54:59
Edd001 we're recalling back as a left back option. Is he any good?

{Ed001's Note - yes, apparently so. When he faced Celtic recently the Rangers and Celtic fans were raving about him.}

11.) 02 Jan 2024 06:40:23
I take it Luke Chambers is not deemed ready.

{Ed001's Note - he struggled badly when he got his chance.}

12.) 02 Jan 2024 11:15:53
Do you think it's just a case of too soon Ed1 or realistically never?

{Ed001's Note - he won't make it with us imo. He needs to be brought crashing down to earth, that will probably require him dropping down a few levels.}

13.) 02 Jan 2024 12:22:45
Interesting Ed1. Personally I know nothing about the kid. You used to be able to get an insight into a player's mindset via their social media but it is so sanitised by PR teams now. Are you saying that there is maybe an issue with the player's mentality?

{Ed001's Note - his social media is not sanitised and he gave interviews after moving to Germany for the loan which did not impress.}

14.) 02 Jan 2024 12:40:09
Sorry I was talking about Luke Chambers Ed1. Yeah, I can see the issue with Carvalho. Furthermore I don't think we need a player of his style right now and is several years away from being ready if he ever will be.

{Ed001's Note - oh Chambers is just not ready yet. He would probably have benefitted from the kind of loan Carvalho got.}



26 Nov 2023 16:29:53
Ed001 any idea what Nunez and Pep was discussing at the end of the game mate yesterday? Nunez seemed wound about something that happened in the game but I don't really know what it was?


{Ed001's Note - just a bit of handbags mate, Nunez had got under Guardiola's skin and he reacted. It was nothing much.}

1.) 27 Nov 2023 07:50:52
How do you rate Nunez ed1 as their has been countless people commenting on him and so much media attention on him

How do you rate him .

I personally think I’ve seen massive improvement in his all round play but his finishing still needs a tad work if that comes jeez watch out everyone . Reason I ask is I saw quotes from Robbie fowler having a little dig at him and I thought it was a tad unfair tbh .

Now that the stupid international break is done with for a good few months I fully expect to see more from him playing regular without the bonkers flights . (Apparently gabby agbonlahor thinks it’s not an excuse and shouldn’t affect a player don’t think he’s made it past his local chippy in 3 years the fool )

{Ed001's Note - I really like Captain Chaos, he causes the opposition so many problems even when it is not going for him. Once he gets that finishing sorted, he will be unstoppable.}

2.) 27 Nov 2023 08:40:13
ED1, you think something like composure in front of goal can be train? Its obviously different finishing in training and finishing in real match where the stakes is so different. Or it is something you develop as you grow old and playing more match?

{Ed001's Note - it can be both or neither. It really depends on so much. It is certainly possible to develop it through training, in fact that is one of the main aims of training is to make finishing, passing, control of the ball etc natural. But it can also be something that comes naturally with experience, as you gain perspective on life and what is truly important.}

3.) 27 Nov 2023 09:12:32
Nice analysis on Darwin, Ed. For me on the handbags, I think Darwin just told Pep like, "Don't think Im like that Arthur whose going to give you high fives when you score. You run up? You'll get done up, bro. "

4.) 27 Nov 2023 09:50:07
I love the memes doing the rounds on social media about that incident Oli - in one it has Nunez asking Guardiola 'what shampoo do you use? ' ???.

5.) 27 Nov 2023 11:13:51
Bill, that's wild, man. There was a post match reaction on one of my fav youtube channels and a commenter said Darwin told Pep like, "You're a cheat as a manager, just like you were as a player (pointing to the pitch) . Good luck in the Conference" or something like that. That done me, bro.

We are looking at CB’s and a long way to go in the window still. Have a little confidence everyone.

Bmena-red I think the simple answer is no mate. Or very unlikely, as Linders advised this week we invested heavily in the summer already.

Ed002 I understand with others it’s totally different and more to it. I was just asking Ed025 opinion on the potential points thing that’s all. I did not expect or need that response from you.


{Ed002's Note - Fine - I have removed your account so you don't need to worry any longer.}

15 Jan 2024 19:43:59
Ed025 surely it won’t result in another points deduction mate in you opinion? I very much look through red tinted glasses but this in my opinion would be very harsh, although I guess then you have broke the rules like a few others. The only thing is that others seem to get away with it.


{Ed002's Note - If you don't understand just posting nonsense does not work.}
