Jiri pavlenka ed?

It does not seem plausible to me that he would sit on the bench.

Seems like a non runner.

Davey Sulls

{Ed002's Note - Last year Jiri Pavlenka was one of the options to Alisson as I recall but I am not aware of any return form him right now. Are you sure this isn't old news of some type?


1.) 31 May 2019 16:09:35
I can confirm he pulled out of the 5:30pm at aintree.


2.) 01 Jun 2019 07:31:54
Probably someone like Reina or David Marshall look likely. Klopp won't spend anything more than a negligible amount on a second choice GK.


 

 

31 Aug 2018 11:24:43
Hi Ed002, With Lyon in the market for a striker, could you see them bidding for Origi? Or are they locked on Dembele. Seems Celtic are playing hardball over him.

Davey Sulls

{Ed002's Note - No, they have not shown any interest in Origi Davey.}


1.) 31 Aug 2018 13:20:46
Thanks Ed. Appreciated.


 

 

08 Aug 2018 14:15:18
I see rumours of Crystal Palace bidding for Origi. Around 15M.

Sounds plausible.

Davey Sulls

1.) 08 Aug 2018 15:31:19
Plausible but I'd guess we want more. Over 20 probably. Rightly in my opinion.

{Ed0333's Note - 20 mill for origi. We talking money or peanut M&M’s? If we get 20 million for origi I’ll be Ed’s 001’s bitch for the season.


2.) 08 Aug 2018 16:19:54
Not even in a world were Richarlson is 50M ed?

{Ed0333's Note - to my knowledge Richarlison is circa 35 million the rest is add ons. No mate even in a word where Troy Deeney was valued at 30 million once upon a time Divock Origi is not 20 million. If Edwards gets that amount he deserves a statue at Anfield.


3.) 08 Aug 2018 16:22:33
Think they should cut their losses and accept all reasonable offers for them just to get shut.


4.) 08 Aug 2018 16:31:52
We bought him at around 10mil plus the fees we got for loaning him back for one year. Anything above that should be acceptable, given that he never really made it to the first team.


5.) 08 Aug 2018 18:14:08
I agree with Ed’s 20m is silly. He hasn’t proven himself and people are not paying for his potential they are paying for the player he is now. Which in my opinion is no more than 15m.


6.) 08 Aug 2018 18:49:56
Richarlison is £35m plus addons realting to how well Everton do in the future. In other words, £35m.


7.) 08 Aug 2018 19:01:26
He's tall, quick, strong, premier league experienced.

Minimum of 20, if they want him now then they might just have to pay a little more aswel.


8.) 08 Aug 2018 19:06:14
You missed out a key factor. He can't finish! Kinda key for a Striker in the Prem.


9.) 08 Aug 2018 19:11:33
£15M is a reasonable fee for Origi, If I remember correctly Wolfsburg paid £6M loan fee for him last year, so we can pretend the fee is £20M+.


10.) 08 Aug 2018 19:21:29
Epicpotato
That comment, hahahaha.

{Ed025's Note - not funny one little bit imo..


11.) 08 Aug 2018 19:37:21
It'd be a shame to see Origi go because I always believed he'd break through but if he does go fingers crossed he can crack on and do well for himself/ new team. I agree with you ra, any profit on what we paid would be a good deal now I think.


12.) 08 Aug 2018 21:49:51
He's not really impressed or performed at the required level or consistently, either for us or away on loan. I wish the lad well but for his sake, and ours, it's better he leaves whatever the price may be.


13.) 08 Aug 2018 22:04:27
Origi has played 2 full seasons in the Prem as 2nd/ 3rd choice striker and has scored double figures both times.
The top scorer last season outside the top 6 scored 12 goals.
Origi as the main striker in a decent team will score that and that why he's worth £20mil in this market.


14.) 08 Aug 2018 22:13:48
Agree epic that other 15 m is pretty safe for Everton.


15.) 08 Aug 2018 23:01:30
I’m a World where Richarlison is £35m Origi should be worth £50m of anyone’s money. He will be a great striker for someone one day. Richarlison is just not very good.
I’ll never understand why Everton paid so much for Richarlison when Calvert Lewin it’s actually a better player. Is it because he’s Brazilian? Yet more gross mismanagement from the toffees that will see them relegated eventually. You mark my words.


16.) 08 Aug 2018 20:07:09
Sorry Ed025. Was just trying to lighten the mood a little.

{Ed025's Note - thats fine EP, if we cant give each other a bit of stick now and again then whats the point?, keep it coming mate..


17.) 08 Aug 2018 16:34:48
Ed033 we as a club seem to always over price our fringe players mate. Do you no why?

It's been said for weeks that we will be busy with outgoings but here we are with one day to go and still have so many players that will clearly get limited playing time.

The likes of

Mignolet Clyne Origi Ings Grujic amongst otherso still on our books swelling the squad and wage bill just doesn't make much sense to me.

{Ed0333's Note - to be honest mate I think it’s a case of being shafted continuously and the club have had enough. We always seemed to be Aldi or Lidl, other clubs knew they could always get a bargain from us and it seems someone up top has said enough is enough, which I wholeheartedly agree with. I think the high valuations started with the nippy Aussie fella whose name I can’t remember and Ibe. We got over market value for both in my opinion and it set a trend. There will be times that we’ll still let a player go cheap but I think that’ll be the exception rather than the norm. The players you mention will all be gone by the end of the month bar Clyne I think.


18.) 09 Aug 2018 01:10:34
Kloppbanger we can still sell players to european clubs for the next three weeks so its not one day to go.


19.) 09 Aug 2018 06:54:30
What if a European clubs wants to buy a premier league player after our window shuts, Can they offer cash plus player? Or can players only leave our shores in this strange early closing malarkey?

{Ed001's Note - can only leave.}


20.) 09 Aug 2018 01:03:10
That's a great point Ed333.

{Ed0333's Note - why thankyou Mr Salah and I thought of it all by myself 😂


 

 

20 May 2018 19:36:20
Dacoure will be an in this summer I'm hearing.

My usual unreliable Spanish source.

Davey Sulls

1.) 20 May 2018 22:41:48
d'Accord!


 

 

20 Apr 2018 20:59:11
Looking through the posts I have come to this:

Cabellos: definitely of interest
Navas: possible
Meyer: possible
Draxler: possible
Lemar: Of interest but not at the price quoted. Unlikely.

Would there be any further names I could check out that Liverpool have shown some interest in?

Davey Sulls

1.) 21 Apr 2018 01:51:17
We've looked at right-backs but I don't think we've settled on one target or anything yet. Might be wrong and if so, please correct me eds.


2.) 21 Apr 2018 00:57:35
My post should have started Hi ed002 😀 fishing for one of those awesome summaries you did for Man u and arsenal fans. Or st least one or two more names to do some research on.

{Ed002's Note - Apologies Davey, I did not see your post. I am not sure that there is anything new right now. I have also explained before about options such as Alisson and Draxler. I had planned on a Sharkopod for the Liverpool page but time is tight, so I will try and get something done during the week.}


3.) 21 Apr 2018 07:37:53
Nice one edd 2 looking forward to it.


4.) 21 Apr 2018 08:11:02
top man ed002
looking forward to it.


5.) 21 Apr 2018 09:27:03
Awesome Ed. Look forward to it always. Appreciate it.


6.) 21 Apr 2018 11:01:52
Jorginho - Definite interest.


7.) 21 Apr 2018 11:21:52
There is no sweeter feeling in the world than seeing a Sharkopod for Liverpool appear on the site. Have to admit, first time I was like, “this ed2 is just having a laugh” now I love the adverts and music almost as much as the priceless information. You are a total legend Ed002. whenever you get around to it, you’ll be making our month.

My take on the transfer business of the top 6 Premier League teams

09 Aug 2019 13:17:08
{Ed's Note - Davey Sulls has posted a new article entitled, My take on the transfer business of the top 6 Premier League teams

Davey Sulls

1.) 09 Aug 2019 13:45:13
Nice summary, I agree with a lot of that.
I do believe you are overrating Chelsea, however. Hazard was/ is an elite footballer, whose very presence on the pitch compels most opponents to significantly adapt their game plans, especially their attacking play. I see it as similar to how we lost Suarez in a way (I’m not comparing them as footballers), teams went for us and we had far less resistance to their play.
I fully agree on Rodri, however. To me, he is the kind of signing that signifies the full Pep-ization of a team, and actually ends up making them worse. Kompany will be a much bigger miss than the usual clowns in the media have suggested.


2.) 09 Aug 2019 14:02:23
I think Chelsea will find a new way of being a dangerous side. Other players will step up. The attack still has Willian, Pulisic, Odoi, Pedro, Giroud, Bathsyui, Mount etc. It's enough to be dangerous and score goals.

In other areas they are superior to both Man United and Arsenal and remember that is the comparison here (not to the top 3). They just seem a far more complete squad to me even without Hazard than the other 2.


3.) 09 Aug 2019 14:35:39
Nice read that Davey. I’m not sure on the Kompany part as he featured in less than half of City’s games last season and they seemed to still manage without him so there must be leaders in the team. Sometimes a leader doesn’t have to be vocal but they lead from the front with their performance and grab the game by the scruff of its neck. I think Bobby and Mane do that for us and are totally under valued as leaders. Either way I think this season could be the most exciting one for a very long time with it being extremely close. I don’t believe the league will be getting won by 90+ points this season.


4.) 09 Aug 2019 14:41:11
I was going to do one of these as well but I think you've summed up it pretty well top be honest Davey. I think Spurs look very balanced but it is hard to look past City when you see the sheer quality, not to mention, monetary value they have from the bench. I don't think anyone can get near then in that respect but losing Kompany is significant - he was a talisman and a leader, both on and off the pitch, and they haven't replaced him at all. In the easier games it won't matter at all but, when their backs are against the wall, it might well see them crumble - time will tell.


5.) 09 Aug 2019 14:55:34
Hi jk23, I think seano gave the answer I was about to give. Most games his loss won't matter but in tighter games he will be a loss. The half of the games he did play was the second half when the went on run. The defence was suspect without him. And it wasnt his talent as much as his leadership and presence at the back that they missed when he didn't play. If it's a dog fight again I take stones and rodri rather than kompany and fernandinho.


6.) 09 Aug 2019 15:09:48
Davey they didn’t fold last week when we put the pressure on them and I know we missed numerous chances but the history books won’t show that. They will show City won it. However I hope you’re right and it does affect City as they are some side. But there again so are we.


7.) 09 Aug 2019 16:19:24
City are a great side jk. No arguments there. I'm just saying that in central defence area, they were stronger last year. Perhaps that might cost them some points. Not a lot. Just some.


8.) 09 Aug 2019 16:34:36
UTD may have added the most expensive defender ever, paid a whopping amount for Wan-Bissaka and signed James but cannot them getting out of the rut they are in. Lukaku got them 12 goals last season and was their 2nd highest scorer.

Pogba could still leave as Europe's transfer window is still open. Pogba was their highest scorer. I do not believe they have enough in the tank to improve on last season. They also do not have a player capable of getting them 20+ a season. I can see them having major problems this season.

Out of all the teams mentioned I think Arsenal will make the biggest improvement. Spurs are still reliant on Kane performing up top but they will be up there come the end of the season.


9.) 09 Aug 2019 17:12:14
Jk23, City's defence is very suspect. Their midfield is top notch though.

Do not see them having it as easy as last season.

Re the Charity shield, Salah had more shots than the whole of the City team. Salah on any other day would have scored 3.

We lost the match on penalties, you ain't going to have the benifit of winning matches in the League on penalties.

And we were without Mane. Just think if he had played, and we actually played really well without him.


10.) 09 Aug 2019 17:29:44
Max I agree mate that their defence is suspect and is their weakest area. I also believe that was still the same case when Kompany was in the team. Their midfield protects them a lot as it’s world class at controlling games. I also think Silva, KDB, Fernandinho, Aguero and even Sterling now are leaders for them more from their performances rather than vocally. We have plenty of leaders in our team mind. This isn’t me bad mouthing our team but I think City deserve an honest opinion on them.


11.) 09 Aug 2019 17:44:45
I don't understand why many think City loosing Kompany is significant . I think its wishful thinking more than anything else . He played less than 15 games last year . Another referee and he should've been sent off against us and cost them a penalty in another game . he was very slow and disrupted their back line . great player and great leader but I think they can cope with out him . As for the charity shield, Laporte their best defender did n't play and yes Salah had more shots than the whole of City attack . but he did n't score but he was n't allowed the right angle, and when his header was clear on goal, their weakest defender came out with an amazing goal line clearance . that's determination not to loose .

As for the rest of top 6, I do expect Arsenal to be up there in the top 4 and can see Leicester and Everton challenging the likes of united and Chelsea . I also expect both united and Chelsea to finish the season with a different manager.


12.) 09 Aug 2019 17:54:09
I do not see Pep stickinging around at City if they cannot win the CL. Same happened at Bayern and believe this season Pep will be found out.


13.) 09 Aug 2019 18:06:38
I do not see Pep stickinging around at City if they cannot win the CL. Same happened at Bayern and believe this season Pep will be found out.
=========================
And Klopp have a history of walking out when the pressure gets too much . so pointless argument really .
I don't understand why most of you obsessed with hoping things go wrong with other teams . Have trust in our own 11, they earn it . very frustrating . I used to argue with Ed002 defending the liverpool supporters . but he is right most of you are beyond fickle.

{Ed025's Note - i have been saying it for years roy.. :)


14.) 09 Aug 2019 18:14:21
Pep won the CL at Barcelona and Still left. If I had to pick a manager for Liverpool though between Pep and Klopp I would choose Klopp every time. But that doesn’t mean i can’t give others a little bit of credit where it’s deserved.


15.) 09 Aug 2019 18:17:14
Beyond fickle. I was not putting bad vibes on City that Pep may pack his bags, could just be the truth when looking at his time at Bayern.

Klopp had to build Dortmund from scratch. He was very succesfull there.

Made us Champions of Europe after having to rebuild the squad Rodgers left for him.

There is a very big difference when it comes to Klopp taking over LFC and Pep taking over City. Pep did not have to rebuild.


16.) 09 Aug 2019 19:01:25
I was in no way putting down city. I think they are a fantastic side and easily capable of making it 3 in a row. I was assessing their transfer window whereby they did not replace Kompany. That is fact. Some will think Kompany was coming to an end anyway. I personally thought he galvanised the team and played more regularly during the winning run. I don't think it was coincidence. His leadership will be missed and otamendi and stones have question marks over them. I think they've weakened in this area. Everywhere else they are as strong as ever and will be the team to beat.


 

 

05 Jun 2019 00:31:54
Hi Ed002, from your summary I see you mentioned that Liverpool would look to source a lw. I think this makes a lot of sense as cover.

Brandt would have been ideal.

Any idea of some possible choices liverpool may be interested in that are not replacements for mane, Salah, firmino.

Just so I can check them out for some fun 😀

Summary was mostly top 3 replacements and I don't like that idea😀.

Davey Sulls

{Ed002's Note - That is not what I said.}


1.) 05 Jun 2019 08:23:11
ED002,

I believe you mentioned 'left sided player' if I'm not mistaken?

Tommy T.

{Ed002's Note - Right - midfield.}


2.) 05 Jun 2019 09:14:09
Well you got that we are looking at a “player” at least.


 

 

06 May 2019 23:12:57
On a positive note we might get to see rhian brewster play tomorrow.

I would love him to start but even 20 mins would do me. For me this lad is going to be really special.

Hope he bangs in the 7th 😀.

Davey Sulls

1.) 07 May 2019 00:10:53
In the first half davie.


2.) 07 May 2019 10:26:01
Barca know we’re struggling with injuries.
They will be targeting the strikers so I wouldn’t start Brewster.
I’d start Big Div. They won’t bully him.
He can knock them about a bit, then bring Brewster on when they’re physically struggling.


 

 

23 Dec 2018 20:55:45
Hey Ed002,
I like most not expecting much in the January window but would you be able to do a post like the one on the arsenal page where we have shown interest in general. Even if perhaps more for the summer.
Thanks.

Davey Sulls

{Ed002's Note - I will be doing a sharkopod soon.}


1.) 23 Dec 2018 21:35:38
Excellent 👌.


2.) 23 Dec 2018 23:02:07
I have 2 young boys, which means I have a full sky package, a fire stick, Netflix, amazon Alexa, super fast broadband, x box, PS 8 and basically internal access to the pentagon.

But nothing, and I mean nothing comes close to access to an Ed002 Sharkopod. it is the the Christmas Present for champions, and all that are lucky enough to have discovered this wonderful website

All hail Ed002, without him you are nothing but mere knuckle dragging moronic fools, with no opinion in the pub, no knowledge of epic put downs, and your little brains would never of heard such an epic array of 60’s Californian music, oh and football transfer gossip so up to date Marty McFly hasn’t even heard of it yet.

ED001 is alright too. I had to say that cos it’s his website.

{Ed033's Note - Take it easy, Ed002 might be a superior being, but he's not a god :)


3.) 24 Dec 2018 00:05:25
ED33, one can only apologise for not mentioning you there. Even though your vocabulary is slightly more extended than mine ( and I’m a chartered engineer via the IMECHE) I still have no idea of some of the words you use, however of the ones I do understand you are a ted through and through, even though the pontifract pleb might not think so. I thought you were supposed to be sacked by now? Lol

Where is ED25 tonight? I imagine he is staggering around Huyton in a blue nose catatonic state muttering kopites are gob persons as per usual.

{Ed033's Note - Are you confusing me (Ed033) with Ed333? Ed333 has used the term, "pontificating pleb" before. I would never call BB that. i might use your term, "pontifract pleb" though :)


4.) 24 Dec 2018 00:44:38
I'll have some of what Kemlyn's smoking!

{Ed033's Note - Maybe the "chartered" bit went to his head.


 

 

26 Sep 2018 09:06:09
Ed, can you do an article on Wilson's free-kick last night. It was that good.

Davey Sulls

{Ed001's Note - I haven't seen it yes but no, it was just one free kick.}


1.) 26 Sep 2018 09:30:52
Hurry up and check it out Ed, its out of this world.


2.) 26 Sep 2018 09:39:30
He just absolutely spanked the ball didn't he? He struck it with such beauty.

I watched the game from start to finish and Wilson was a threat through out.

I hope he keeps up this form!

Red Sandman.


3.) 26 Sep 2018 09:44:30
Yeah honestly Ed001 do give it a looksy. I've watched it fifty times and still can't quite wrap my head around the physics of it.


4.) 26 Sep 2018 09:52:21
What a goal! Haven't seen that technique used that often. Do you think he has ever trained with Philip coutinio? Good lad giving it the "five times"


5.) 26 Sep 2018 09:49:48
If the lad continues, he's going to be something special for us next season.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath Salah.}


6.) 26 Sep 2018 09:59:44
That is a true knuckle ball. Not seen one like that since Roberts Carlos. Absolutely pied the goalie.


7.) 26 Sep 2018 09:59:27
Keeper probably should have kept that out 😉.


8.) 26 Sep 2018 10:05:06
Ed2! how are you mate? you well?

{Ed002's Note - I am indeed in reasonable shape thanks. And are you back up and running?}


9.) 26 Sep 2018 10:13:40
Glad to hear it Ed2. Chance would be a fine thing mate, but I'm getting there. I can't really moan, I'm just bored and frustrated more than anything but it doesn't last forever so I'm just looking forward to the future :) . Take care mate.

{Ed002's Note - You have the niftiest of days Salah.}


10.) 26 Sep 2018 10:27:22
Thank you Ed. You too.


11.) 26 Sep 2018 10:37:31
Hi ed2, just a quick one and I understand if you don't want to expand, but its seems your not convinced that Wilson will get the first team opportunities at Liverpool, I'm just surprised that a young player who shows his ability regularly still probably won't be considered for a place in the squad next season, any reason why you think that might be the case?

Many Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - The owners have made it clear that they indend to buy the Premier League title and Klopp has made it clear he has changed tact and all of his previous statements about building from within are out of the window. Right now, the likes of Grujic, Ojo, Woodburn and Wilson (plus the likes of Allan and Awoniyi who are in limbo) are getting first team football and will have to consider their futures. Do they look to continue their progression or (if the opportunity arises) or risk being the new Chirivella who trains with the first team squad but in reality has little chance of playing and no chance of playing regularly. maybe they will keep their eye on how much game time Brewster gets when fully fit, he was promised that he would be integrated and used regularly - but the players will be aware that Grujic was promised all sorts that also never came true. If Liverpool were to really get their act together regarding progression, loans etc., I am sure it would ease the issue. And I should say that this is not something that is peculiar to Liverpool, other clubs suffer in just the same way - Everton has a player in Lookman who after playing in Germany at a high-level does not want to be third or fourth pick at Everton, Nathanial Chalobah left Chelsea to get first team football, Serge Gnabry is only now building up a good career after leaving Arsenal a couple of years ago, etc..}


12.) 26 Sep 2018 11:45:26
Very insightful Ed but I'm sure some players, example TAA have a chance to gradually make it to the first team.

Wilson continues to impress if he were to progress as everyone wants surely he can take Lallana's place in the squad next season and maybe be a first teamer some day?

{Ed002's Note - As I said, he will want to play. Lallana doesn't play.}


13.) 26 Sep 2018 12:19:35
I am with Ed002 on this one. If Wilson stayed behind without going out on loan at max he will be in bench tonight. I expect another loan but to PL club next season.


14.) 26 Sep 2018 12:43:40
Thanks for the in depth reply, i find myself agreeing with you about the majority of the youngsters, although none of them have performed as well as Wilson, excluding Chirivella who did well but then knocked back Rosenberg, his situation is in part his own making. Brewster will be an interesting one because regardless of talent, how do you drop Bobby and Studge unless injured.

{Ed002's Note - I appreciate Brewster is injured at the moment but he has a great deal of potential at a young age and Chelsea were disappointed when he left - the issue is that yet again he is a player who has had promises made to him that really don't align with what the club is doing. Chirivella is one who will need to make a decision soon.}


15.) 26 Sep 2018 12:46:56
Gulacsi, Suso, Luis Alberto etc. etc.


16.) 26 Sep 2018 13:40:49
As you point out Ed002 mate, this is not peculiar to LFC alone. Do you think we have a problem with player development in this country? What would you opine could be done? Is FIFA right to limit loans.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with the country it is the approach taken by individual clubs that t is the real issue with loans - although the English sides generally don't have a particularly good approach.

I think there has been a great deal of misunderstanding about the proposals FIFA has.}


17.) 26 Sep 2018 13:50:48
Just to clarify Ed002 - did Chirivella not decide to leave but fail to secure his move? I neither want this nor hope for this but it was my understanding of the summer events, is that not correct? Assuming it is, I very much hope we do better in proving to others that they will get time and make room in the squad for them.

On the wider point, it's time to stop filling the bench with players who are unlikely to have huge tactical importance as a sub, and who won't benefit from shorter appearances. When we are winning comfortably we are good enough to take risks without too much concern that it'll actually cost us and get some people in that would actually benefit from half an hour of football with the first team every other week at least. Southampton and West Ham are already two great wasted opportunities where at least one player of our aspiring youth could have had a no risk 20 minutes of football. It needs to happen. And if you don't think it's important then consider this - imagine the CL final except when Salah went off we bought on another winger full of pace and willingness to shoot instead of someone completely different who made the entire team and tactics not click (not Lallana's fault just not a role he could do even in his price) . Quality might not be the same, but at least it would give a chance to still get the best out of the rest of our stars. Had we been putting in either Woodburn on Wilson every time we opened up a three goal lead last season, that might have been an actual option and then who knows?

{Ed002's Note - Pedro Chirivella rejected the opportunity to move and now is no more than fluff for the first team.}

I've never really liked Frank lampard but when I think why it's because he was really good and didn't play for Liverpool. I think Derby is a good place for Wilson atm, lampard is an intelligent bloke and I reckon the sort of coach who will improve players, especially attacking players.

A balance between home grown youngsters and multi million pound stars is a tough one. Over the last 2 seasons gomez, Alexander Arnold and dom solanke have all had significant game time. Brewster has been promoted to the first team and I'm sure if he impresses in training he will get a shot.

Klopp gave the pre season to the youngsters as well. If we played all the youngsters mentioned we would not be top of the league, we may even be struggling. I don't think Liverpool are the worst offenders, at least kids know it is possible at Liverpool. Solanke got a good shot last season and although he played well, unfortunately he didn't stamp a claim on the team.

Also we crashed out of both cups early on last season and I reckon we would have seen more of the young team. Hopefully we get past Chelsea tonight and have some games against lower league teams this season.

I really wouldn’t concern yourself with who was promised what. I bet all players are promised if they knuckle down, work hard and improve they will get their chances. It’s then down to the individual player.
TAA did just that and look at him now. If Brewster, Wilson, Grujic etc. do the same then they will get their chances and when they do they have to take them.
If they don’t do what’s required then they only have themselves to blame regardless of what they were ‘promised’.
If you think about it, it would be massively counter productive to say to a young player ‘work hard but even if you do you won’t get any chances in the first team’. Of course they will promise them game time, it’s called motivation. Then it’s up to the player to force his way in.

{Ed002's Note - You clearly don't understand.}

It was a beautiful knuckle ball - reminded me more of Bale than Coutinho, and completely duped the keeper with a double swerve.

As to playing time, he’s doing exactly the right thing in playing first team football in the championship instead of sitting on the bench. ed02 is right that it’s very unlikely that youngsters get game time at a club like Liverpool just for having talent, they’re far better developing that talent in other leagues for a couple of years and then coming back with experience of a competitive professional league. Obvious exceptions like Trent are rare and require exceptional talent but also luck in terms of the team needing emergency cover at just the right time.

Guys, I have seen Wilson's goal and my word, it seems to defy the laws of Physics. The whip, dip, pace and swerve on that ball would have left ANY gk with NO chance at all. The world class quality of that free kick shows that Wilson has been working hard on his game and trying to add to his repertoire as an all-round footballer. I hope he gets a chance and that we keep him long term.

I completely understand Ed having been a young player in that position. Not at that level but still with a chance of forging a career in the game had I just got my head down and worked at my game.
I was promised this and that if I signed for this or that club but it wasn’t the clubs that didn’t eventually give me the chance it was me not doing enough to force them to give me the chances I wanted.
It’s a results driven business sentiment has no place in the game it took me a while to understand that and be the time I did it was too late.
Nobody owes you anything it’s up to you to grab the opportunities with both hands and these kids have a huge opportunity it’s just up to them to do whatever it takes to take it. Or they could take the easy way out and leave for a lesser club which most seem to do because it’s very difficult to break into a top premier league side at a young age.

{Ed002's Note - Most clubs do not promise kiddies the things that Klopp does.}


23.) 27 Sep 2018 00:06:32
I understand Klopp has gone back on promises on more than one occasion, but would it not be worse to keep playing someone with a poor attitude just because he had promised him game time previously?


24.) 27 Sep 2018 00:10:19
could you not see Brewster and Solanke fighting it out to back up Bobby with Sturridge and Origi moved on?


25.) 27 Sep 2018 08:20:55
These days at the big clubs it seems youngsters only get a chance if there's an injury crisis, that's basically how TAA and Gomez got there chances, can't think of many youngsters who progressed through naturally into the team.


26.) 27 Sep 2018 14:52:23
Thank you Ed002, didn't realise it was him who rejected the chance. Much appreciated.

I thought Cornet was not worth it either but the more I research him the more I start to see it. He is a bit rash in his decision making but his running in behind the defence is excellent. I think he could be a rough diamond.

Looks ideal on youtube. And everybody knows youtube clips are golden when judging a players ability. :)

Did we ever find out if Ron Keague and Ken Aguero were the same person? I miss Ken Aguero's Lucky Pants updates!

I was in no way putting down city. I think they are a fantastic side and easily capable of making it 3 in a row. I was assessing their transfer window whereby they did not replace Kompany. That is fact. Some will think Kompany was coming to an end anyway. I personally thought he galvanised the team and played more regularly during the winning run. I don't think it was coincidence. His leadership will be missed and otamendi and stones have question marks over them. I think they've weakened in this area. Everywhere else they are as strong as ever and will be the team to beat.

City are a great side jk. No arguments there. I'm just saying that in central defence area, they were stronger last year. Perhaps that might cost them some points. Not a lot. Just some.

Hi jk23, I think seano gave the answer I was about to give. Most games his loss won't matter but in tighter games he will be a loss. The half of the games he did play was the second half when the went on run. The defence was suspect without him. And it wasnt his talent as much as his leadership and presence at the back that they missed when he didn't play. If it's a dog fight again I take stones and rodri rather than kompany and fernandinho.

I think Chelsea will find a new way of being a dangerous side. Other players will step up. The attack still has Willian, Pulisic, Odoi, Pedro, Giroud, Bathsyui, Mount etc. It's enough to be dangerous and score goals.

In other areas they are superior to both Man United and Arsenal and remember that is the comparison here (not to the top 3). They just seem a far more complete squad to me even without Hazard than the other 2.
