Morning Ed002, not a usual post from me but.

Do we hold any interest in Rennes 18 year old midfielder Eduardo Camavinga?

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - Eduardo Camavinga (DM/CM) Rennes will look for a summer auction as he the player has no interest in signing a new contract. Serious approaches for Camavinga have been made by Real Madrid, PSG, Arsenal, Manchester United and Spurs - but Arsenal can be discounted as they do not have the money nor the real need for the player and Spurs, and possibly Manchester United, as they are not attractive destinations for many players. Interest has also been shown by Borussia Dortmund (who were quoted €100M), Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Manchester City, Atletico Madrid and Genk - but the last two can be discounted as they simply don't have the funds and the others have other targets. A move to England for the kiddie is less likely than a move to Spain. He is perhaps a little way from first team football at the highest level but PSG, Barcelona and Real Madrid are considering taking a chance on him in the summer but will not pay the revised COVID-19 asking price of €75M and if Zidane were to depart Real Madrid that would change. Bayern Munich see him as an option to Zakaria. There was a discussion about the player with Chelsea who have a very good relationship with Rennes, but they have preferred options and see the price as too high - but perhaps something could be negotiated depending on departures which would be the driver for Chelsea. There has been no approaach from Liverpool.}


1.) 08 May 2021 10:37:24
Ok thanks Ed002, looks like he could become some player.

{Ed002's Note - Yes he is very well thought of.}


2.) 08 May 2021 22:25:07
Ed2, interested in your comment "Spurs, and possibly Manchester United, as they are not attractive destinations for many players"

Can you explain a bit more what that is about? Especially ManU?

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United have disgruntled midfield players and have repeatedly failed to provide any roadmap for players.}

A rumour in the echo - Mané might not be playing this afternoon.

Drogie

1.) 31 Jan 2021 15:42:36
Correct. Origi, Shaq and salah. poor.


2.) 31 Jan 2021 15:55:07
Minimino can’t get look in! I’d not be starting origi he’s dirt I don’t care what goals he scored! All he does is fall over and do step overs! (Hope he makes me eat these words)!


3.) 31 Jan 2021 16:03:11
Minamino would be entitled to throw in a transfer request at this rate .


4.) 31 Jan 2021 16:23:26
Taki cannot get a game for love nor money and feel for the lad. If Origi scores today and we win, well perfect. But it doesn’t excuse the fact he has not been up standard for as long as I can remember. He should be sold this summer to raise much needed funds. Come to think of it, he should have been sold the summer just gone but here we are.


5.) 31 Jan 2021 16:32:36
The time to sell origi was right after the champions league final win. He was worth twice as much on the back of that season. Can’t see him going now.


6.) 31 Jan 2021 17:29:44
Origi has been a passenger, literally offers nothing. Bound to score the winner now 😂😂😂.


7.) 31 Jan 2021 18:24:52
Embarrassing post.


8.) 31 Jan 2021 18:47:43
Aye, poor j6.


9.) 31 Jan 2021 19:21:38
How is it a poor post? Its factually correct. Origi offered nothing in that game. It's not slagging the individual but the performance. Jesus, snow flake city boys. I forgot an opinion is outlawed.


 

 

01 Jan 2021 09:34:05
Morning Ed's and Happy New year to you all!

It looks like we are set to sign 16 year old Stefan Bajcetic ( CB ) for the academy. Apparently we've been tracking him since 2019 and with the club wanting to get this particular deal over the line speaks volumes for the player's future potential.

Drogie

1.) 01 Jan 2021 13:01:05
Stefan Bajcetic was signed yesterday before the Brexit deadline.


 

 

30 Sep 2020 12:58:32
Quick couple of questions Ed002 if I may.

Hearing Sheffield United are in advanced talks to sign Brewster for around £17m, with a buy back clause?

Apparently ( yesterday ) there was a meeting regarding how the season could end should the C.V. take hold of the country again next year?

Cheers.

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - (a) I am not sure what "advanced talks" are but that is the offer they put on the table a few days ago. (b) The proposal is to have who ever is in the lead awarded the title if more than 50% of games have been completed by all sides should the season stop again.}


1.) 30 Sep 2020 13:46:39
Win next 15 games and we're there Drogie :) . In all seriousness, let's hope a vaccine is found as soon as is safely possible for everyone's sake as it's unlikely to disappear anytime soon.


2.) 30 Sep 2020 13:31:45
Surely that proposal will be turned down ed? Do you have any thoughts on it? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have been struggling to sell players because they have over-valued them and buyers are not knocking on the door. Hence no solution for Grujic, Brewster or Wilson just yet.}


3.) 30 Sep 2020 13:44:48
Wow, so that makes having a lead at the top of the table and maintaining it more important than ever!


4.) 30 Sep 2020 14:17:40
Hey Ed, would you know if this would be the case even if the team in the lead was only in the lead by goal difference or even just 1 point? Probably hasn't been clarified yet but thought I'd ask out of curiosity.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It is very simple, it is whichever team is occupying first place after all sides have played 50% of their games if the season has to end. And most clubs are in agreement with it.}


5.) 30 Sep 2020 14:49:59
Is there any news on Shaq's departure? He is surely a good prospect for someone at around 25m.

{Ed002's Note - I am sure that clubs are queuing up at £25M.}


6.) 30 Sep 2020 15:33:30
Thank you Ed, I can't see clubs agreeing to it if that were to happen!

{Ed002's Note - As I said, most clubs are in agreement or don't care (such they would not vote against it).}


7.) 30 Sep 2020 18:26:38
Surprised they don't care, European places be settled the same way one presumes?


8.) 30 Sep 2020 17:54:47
Hi ED,

Would this still be on the basis of no relegation unless the season is completed.

{Ed002's Note - It is an unrelated issue.}


9.) 30 Sep 2020 23:13:56
Doubt the league would be stopped early it would financially cripple the league.


10.) 30 Sep 2020 23:43:04
I think it's a bit silly if the league was settled like that but maybe it's for financial reasons that clubs aren't voting against that proposal. Then again, I have no idea if prize money would be paid in full or apportioned in line with the number of games played.

I would find it strange if someone got crowned champions (even if it was us) for 20 games or so and then when back playing again to start another new season.


11.) 01 Oct 2020 06:38:02
That really would be a league title that didn't count, 50 percent doesn't seem right. I hope it doesn't get stopped.


12.) 01 Oct 2020 10:48:42
If it had to be cancelled then 50% is arguably fairer then 75%.

With 50% you'd expect everyones played each other once and the best team would likely sit top.

If you went with a higher percentage you then have teams that could have an easier run and all their hard fixtures at the end of the season. If they were top it wouldn't necessarily be a true reflection.

Fingers crossed we don't need to activate the rule anyway.


13.) 01 Oct 2020 11:28:35
Good point Wyred but still isn't fair and any team to win it like that wouldn't ever be seen as true champions imo.


14.) 01 Oct 2020 12:42:09
Its a complete worse case scenario though mate, if its triggered I think there will be a lot worse to worry about then of its fair.

It won't be ideal if its what's required but I think its better then scrubbing a season completely.


 

 

17 Jul 2020 09:39:49
The Telegraph are reporting Diego Carlos is Guardiola's first choice CB. Be interesting to see if we throw our hat in the mix should city make a move for him.

The only reason I'm posting this is because Klopp has an interest.

Have you heard anything on this ( regarding City's ) interest Ed002?

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - Diego Carlos (CB) Manchester City had dropped their interest in preference of two others - but it could return. Real Madrid has a sustained interest but the focus is seeing what funds can be raised and then returning for DC or another. Barcelona have him on their list of CBs but money is going to be an issue this summer and they will look to horse trade using Ivan Rakitic. Priority is, like Real Madrid and get any transfer completed and then see where they are (they have already deferred their two major purchases to next summer). Liverpool has declared an interest in taking DC in the summer. If this happens, I would think it would be the big move for the club this summer and would leave Gomez picking up pieces across the defence. May be viable for Liverpool to include Xherdan Shaqiri in a deal but that opportunity is very quickly drifting away and having no funds will hamper them.


1.) 17 Jul 2020 12:26:58
I think Gomez will be picking up the pieces of his liverpool career if we spend big money on a CB.


2.) 17 Jul 2020 12:45:20
Thanks for the comprehensive reply Ed002.


3.) 17 Jul 2020 13:27:57
You need to ask yourself, if Virg was to get injured, can you see Gomez as the same player without Virg next to him. Gomez is brilliant but I think Klopp would want another leader/ strong centre half. Personally I don't think Gomez posseses leadership qualities in the backline if we missed Virg.


4.) 17 Jul 2020 13:33:05
I doubt they'll sell him for a hat.


5.) 17 Jul 2020 18:31:32
Gomez may be a bit young to be a Virgil type CB but he is still a very good CB and I do not think we will be looking to replace him.


6.) 17 Jul 2020 17:30:11
Hi Ed, I hope you are keeping well.

Do you think we would make a move even if we hadn't done the potential business that would raise the (or any of the) funds?

I have read and understood your view re our finances but is this player and in particular this position important enough for Klopp to react should it look like he is losing him prior to the expected sales?

I appreciate that it's a speculative question but I hope you see what I mean and why I ask.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - The club does not have funds without selling unless they dip in to the money that is available from all of the assets being mortgaged, including Anfield. That makes ltlle sense to me.}


7.) 17 Jul 2020 20:25:32
Gomez can't pass. Has only got pace. he's a 3rd choice if a more cultured def is available. Klopp knows it. He struggled to oust matip before he got injured.


8.) 17 Jul 2020 21:39:56
I don't understand what has happened to Gomez's confidence? As He was doing fine last season. As things stand today, Matip is the better CB.


9.) 17 Jul 2020 23:27:56
Gomez can't pass? had to read that line a few times.


10.) 18 Jul 2020 03:20:30
Get off Gomez back. We just won the league and there was an expected hangover. Granted we didn't expect a 4-0 hangover and a loss to Arsenal but don't throw the towel in on Gomez. I personally like the scenario of Gomez filling in at all spots, Larouchi getting a move away which is good for his career and whatever transfer funds we have being used for Carlos. I think we are a few years from seeing Ki jana and Sepp ready to step up, so it would make plenty of sense to me.


11.) 18 Jul 2020 03:58:48
Joe gomez is 23 and has won the premier league champions league and club world cup as a centre back with liverpool.

Some people are saying he ain't good enough. Name me a better centre half around his age. He plays in a high pressure environment week in week out at a top level. He ain't a 23 year old cb playing in a soft league. Look at our goals conceded total this year.

Hes about 6 years away from his peak too btw.

If gomez struggles with anything its confidence at times. That will mature naturally. he's a much better centre half than even he thinks he is and certainly a much better centre half than some liverpool supporters think.

He would walk into any other defence in the premier league and he's home grown as well.

Liverpool need another back up cb if lovern leaves. Nothing more. If they can get a really good one who is happy to rotate and at a decent price then great.


12.) 18 Jul 2020 14:07:54
you don't have be over 23 to pass a ball.


13.) 18 Jul 2020 18:15:55
What is this nonsense about Gomez not being able to pass?

Sure, he can't ping 50 yard passes like Vigil can, but he's adept enough at passing for what he needs.


14.) 19 Jul 2020 07:48:20
he often puts others under pressure with his passing. Personally think it's a weak point far outweighed by the rest of his game.

We do need another first choice CD though.


15.) 21 Jul 2020 22:05:49
I like gomez he’s quick and statistically gomez and VVD are a great partnership. As in they rarely concede. For me liverpool still need a proper striker more than anything else. 20 plus shots on goal scoring one isn’t good enough. Mane Salah and Firmino are superb but often they need 5 chances to score one. Firmino hasn’t scored at anfield this season. Brilliant player who for me is one of the first players on the team sheet but his finishing isn’t great. We need a Torres type up top imo.

Morning ed001,

Just out of interest, what was your overall opinion on Gini?

For me, his first three seasons, he went missing in lots of games, especially away, then really came into his own the year we won the CL and the League. Last season felt he dropped off too

Cheers.

Drogie

{Ed001's Note - for me he went missing constantly, only bothering to show up once in a blue moon. He got dropped for the Barca game and then came on and played well, but he soon returned to being anonymous. Last season he started brilliantly, then when he realised his ridiculous wage demands wouldn't be met, he stopped bothering and went back to being a ghost for 90 minutes. It is no wonder he could stay fit, he played well within himself and only rarely threatened to even show a tenth of what he could do.

Personally I think he is one of those massively overrated players that is being credited for things he never did. He is not even close to legendary status, he was barely average for 90% of his time with us. I am thankful he is gone and the likes of Elliott can take his place with ease and improve us massively.}


1.) 20 Sep 2021 07:18:36
I have to agree with Edd001 about Wini massive potential which he never quite attained.


2.) 20 Sep 2021 07:28:10
He was that poor Klopp kept picking him 🤣🤣 plus the likes of Barcelona and PSG came in for him. They sign all the crap players!


3.) 20 Sep 2021 07:35:29
Agree with Ed001’s assessment of Gini but why would Klopp keep picking Gini instead of leaving him out of the side?


4.) 20 Sep 2021 07:28:18
Great response, thanks ed001.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}


5.) 20 Sep 2021 07:42:01
Not doing too well for PSG. Poor performances and not in the starting line up.


6.) 20 Sep 2021 08:18:18
Well put Ed, agreed.


7.) 20 Sep 2021 08:19:16
Pegleg: Barcelona have signed plenty of crap player in recent memory, i don't think Wijnaldum is crap btw just pointing out they have got plenty wrong in the transfer market.

£247m on 2 players and they don't want either of them.


8.) 20 Sep 2021 08:35:15
Glad to see a response without the blinkers on, hugely over rated, seems very bitter now and picking up a huge wage at a club that deserves to be lumbered with an average player on a obscene wage, seem a good match.


9.) 20 Sep 2021 09:49:26
I think it's quite telling how much better we look without him and with Elliot/ Jones in his place.

Not just the results but the overall performance levels so far this season have been excellent.


10.) 20 Sep 2021 09:11:46
And to think more people think Gini is superior to Hendo. He may have been better is he played to his potential and ability but he rarely did so. And all the while head being lauded by the media and loved by the fans. Now think about Hendo, who’s written off by pundits and fans and managers, struggled with injuries, but kept playing to his max and is still being doubted by many. That man has balls and spine of steel.

{Ed001's Note - Gini is a nice likeable guy with huge potential, but actuality Henderson is light years ahead of him.}


11.) 20 Sep 2021 09:25:34
Ed001, asking you the question that has been pondered above. In your opinion, why did Klopp keep picking him? Was it familiarity with the other players in midfield? Was it that he did some things OK?

To me the biggest issue with Gini was that there was so much potential but he did not hit those heights often enough. Not dissimilar to Keita, who again just doesn't fulfil his potential often enough.

{Ed001's Note - last season it was because there was no one else fit. Before that it is like with Keita, Klopp is trying to get the potential out of them. He knows what they can do and he keeps hoping to see it appear. The problem with someone like Gini, same with Origi, they are just too laid back and need to be fired up to get a performance out of them. They need to be pushed and dropped regularly to make them go out there with aggression, it didn't happen enough with Gini.

The problem is that statistically Gini often shows up well, even though he achieved so little doing so. So you have the stats guys arguing for him as well, even though the reality is that he got a lot of the stats through poor play, such as touches, he gets a lot of them because he slows down the play with too many of them. Yes he holds players off well and protects the ball, but most of the time he could have played an early ball and not needed to take the risk and got the play moving forward quickly. It makes him look good to fans and in stats, but in actuality it is usually poor play that often cost the chance of a quick counter.}


12.) 20 Sep 2021 10:03:09
Everyone is entitled to their views of course but that is an overly-harsh summary of Wijnaldum’s contribution in mine.
It’s just not possible to survive in Liverpool’s midfield 3 if he’d been so poor over such a length of time.
The team’s continued improvement over his time, and his appearances total, say that.
Liverpool badly suffered when Henderson was out injured prior to Wijnaldum’s arrival; after it, much less so and those hard yards were consistently made by the Dutchman.
Don’t forget too, that some of this period was before Fabinho’s arrival when it was necessary for the midfield to do a bit of everything week-to-week depending on availability.
If he were 28 when he’d asked for his big contract, would it have been turned down?
I’m not sure.

{Ed001's Note - you may not be so sure, but he was not going to get the obscene amount he asked for if he was 25, let alone 28, he was simply not worth it and nothing I said was harsh. I was gentle on him if anything. Hard yards my arse, the defenders would have the ball and he would be hiding behind opposition players rather than making an angle.}


13.) 20 Sep 2021 10:06:16
Thanks for that Ed001, makes a lot of sense, especially the stats bit. I remember watching game after game when Gini played and trying to figure out what he did. A lot of my mates said "he's so good at it you don't even realise he's pulling the strings" so I thought I was missing something!

{Ed001's Note - not in the slightest mate, people are making things up in their head that he did to try and pretend he offered something as he kept getting picked and was well liked. Most overrated player of the Klopp era.}


14.) 20 Sep 2021 10:16:57
To be fair to him he was one of the best I’ve ever seen at protecting the ball. Used to say to my kids they won’t get the ball off Gini when he had his back to play. I also wonder how much of it was him playing the role he was given in the team and how suited to that role was he. Also maybe his best was a 6/ 7 out of 10 performance. I wouldn’t put him in same bracket as Keita. He deserves more respect than that.


15.) 20 Sep 2021 10:19:22
Well, as it stands Ed, we’ve got one of his replacements laid up for the season and another with a calf pull problem and it’s not even October yet.
It wouldn’t surprise me to see Liverpool dip into the market for a midfielder in January.

{Ed001's Note - why? Elliott will be back soon, Thiago's problem is only minor and Jones is there and in need of games. There is also Ox and Keita, plus with Bobby coming back there is an option to play him deeper.}


16.) 20 Sep 2021 10:44:34
I said it last season lads. Klopp tried to replace Gini as first choice 3 times: Ox, Keita and Thiago.

He only held on because he was fit the whole time, whereas Ox got crocked, Keita picked up injuries and was also poor when fit, Thiago was put out for a couple of months and by the time he was back all our midfielders were playing center back, so we still needed Gini.

{Ed001's Note - exactly SR, he was alluding to that when he said he didn't feel wanted.}


17.) 20 Sep 2021 11:30:29
Ed, how soon do you mean by 'soon'?

{Ed001's Note - he is expected back playing this season. It is certainly soon enough to make a January buy a waste.}


18.) 20 Sep 2021 11:50:15
This is really just opening a can of worms that i can’t discuss without getting worked up, some of the responses above clearly demonstrating why that is. Some of you clutching at straws and you know if. When you’re resorting to the fallacy of appealing to authority, as if PSG and Barcelona have never signed bad players and aren’t going off the same baseless hype about Gini that everyone else does, you’ve already lost the argument. Btw, Gini has been crap for PSG and is taking all kinds of stick for his insufferable insistence on taking 100 touches on the ball and inability to play a pass further than 5 yards. He isn’t even starting. Also, using his game time last season as an indicator is another blatant fallacy. We didn’t have a big pool of players due to injury and Klopp felt team needed stability due to being chopped and changed so much. Doesn’t negate the fact that Klopp tried to replace him on 3 separate occasions does it.

If you have to resort to appealing to authority without context, rather than justifying your opinion on a player based on what you actually see them do on the pitch, then it’s almost certainly you that is in the wrong.


19.) 20 Sep 2021 13:35:11
AW, you’re right I’m wrong. Have a nice day fella I bow to your superior knowledge.


20.) 20 Sep 2021 14:24:06
All I know is that maybe klopp did try to replace him with Ox but he still played 90% of the time, Keita but he still played 90% of the time, Thiago but he STILL played 90% of the time. Maybe some might argue that last season was a fallacy because we ran out of midfielders and I would tend to agree if he hadn't played in all those previous seasons 90% of the times.
Its nearly like some posters know more and try to second guess the manager. All I know is if he was that crap that under achieving, especially when we have had so much success then he certainly wouldn't have played 90% of the games, not just last season but all the previous ones too.


21.) 20 Sep 2021 14:58:59
Hahahaha nice one Pegleg, you’ve literally just proven my point for me. This is exactly what i mean when i say i don’t like talking about Wijnaldum. Never once have i been presented with a legitimate counterargument. All it ends up being is slander, snide jabs or patronising sarcastic remarks that hold no water, all tell tale signs of someone on the back foot in an argument they can’t. Why it is this player in particular that people defend with such hostility and bitterness? Why can’t anyone put forward their own assessment of Wijnaldums ability on the football pitch? Why is this the hill that some people have chosen to die on? You’d honestly think he was the second coming of Christ. I think some people actually like him more than they like Henderson. Maybe it’s the appeal of having another stick with which to thrash FSG with. Honestly who can say. The mind boggles.


22.) 20 Sep 2021 15:08:24
The truth as always lies somewhere in between. Never one of my favourites and I was often left frustrated by him. But last season if we didn’t have Gini no way we make the top 4. And for what he did v Barcelona I will never forget that.


23.) 20 Sep 2021 18:07:55
Don’t be so melodramatic AW 😂
It’s also quite obvious what qualities Gini brought to the team - pace, stamina, durability, flexibility, an attacking threat and a good team ethic.
You can bury your head in the sand and ignore this but otherwise it would be Liverpool being extremely successful with only two effective midfielders?
That is just not possible.
As we’ve also seen, his replacements have a habit of coming unstuck.
Thiago has pulled his calf on the hour mark, I’m starting to worry about his ability to last a full-on PL match. We saw it last season and it’s happening again.


24.) 20 Sep 2021 19:02:59
Like I said AW, have a nice day 👍🏻.


 

 

12 Sep 2021 18:36:06
What is it with us and injuries? Bobby out for a while and now a serious injury to Harvey Elliot - we've played four games 😩.

Drogie

1.) 12 Sep 2021 19:48:07
Gotta be something to do with that arsenal physio we signed. Ever since then we’ve had so many injuries happen, and before then we had none and arsenal were injury ridden for years.


2.) 12 Sep 2021 20:17:31
Yep, bad tackle on Harvey from the ex-Arsenal physio today.


3.) 12 Sep 2021 20:23:03
Our physio is responsible for Elliott’s injury? Or the VVD, Gomez or Thiago injuries? What a bizarre opinion.


4.) 12 Sep 2021 20:34:18
The ex Arsenal physio went on to the pitch and tackled Elliot then?


5.) 12 Sep 2021 20:36:43
It happens, at least it’s not all the same position this year, so glass half full.


6.) 12 Sep 2021 20:39:47
I’m not a fan of the changes we made with the medical team but you can’t blame the Elliott injury on them. Every team gets injuries we just don’t have the squad to cope with getting a few. Midfield we still have numbers but Elliott gone we’re ridiculously light up front now.


7.) 12 Sep 2021 20:53:46
Surely the physio department just treat the injuries once they have happened. They don’t plan fitness or actual training sessions for non injured players.

Wasn't even a bad tackle and never a red. The kid was just terribly unlucky.

{Ed025's Note - im with you OMM, the lad was gutted but it was just one of those things, get well soon harvey and when your back i believe you will be on the cusp of great things mate..


9.) 12 Sep 2021 21:22:53
I disagree. Its an awful tackle.

Whilst his leading leg hooks round Harvey the trailing leg catches him studs first back of the leg. That's what does all the damage.

Intent or no intent.


10.) 12 Sep 2021 21:43:29
Your opinion Wassa and you're entitled to it and I respect it. I just don't agree mate.


11.) 12 Sep 2021 21:46:30
The relaxation on physical contact this season is going to lead to far more incidents and injuries like this as players become more emboldened to play physically, and go in strongly, without fear of reprieve. Gutted for Elliott has been doing very well, horrible injury to occur.


12.) 12 Sep 2021 21:58:51
True blue u r ed mate. Fair play man. Good luck tomorrow night, my brother and nephew r on the boat as I text heading over for game. Tbh its the only game I want Everton to win for them.

{Ed025's Note - you are obviously the black sheep of the family roro :) , i hope the guys have a great time mate and the blues do the business for them..

I'm with you too drogie, he's had brought bad luck to the team since he arrived it was like when grobbelaar brought that witch doctor to Anfield all those years ago.


14.) 12 Sep 2021 23:58:26
Seano,

The lad was sent off and the FA process will take care of the punishment.

I think it terms of reprisals …. Leeds still have to come to our place later in the season.


15.) 13 Sep 2021 01:45:47
the 'funny' thing is that Mane was hit with a similar kind of tackle just minutes later. Cooper got him from behind / on the side, definitely contacted Mane first but also won the ball. it looks like he won't the space, to win the ball, if that is even a thing. But he had to clatter mane to get it. anyways, thought that was a foul and they should be discouraging those kinds of tackles from behind.


16.) 13 Sep 2021 07:47:38
WDW the red card will be rescinded. I'd bet any money on it.


17.) 13 Sep 2021 08:26:17
Which will make it all the more interesting when they come to play at Anfield.

{Ed025's Note - it what way WDW?, am i missing something here?..


18.) 14 Sep 2021 06:42:42
So you're advocating a revenge act on the lad? And for us to go down to 10 men? So whose the sacrificial lamb in this amazing plan of yours? Maybe engage the brain before letting the fingers run away with themselves.

Evening Ed's
Anyone heard any news regarding Bobby's injury - just a general question.

{Ed001's Note - no mate nothing.}

Ok cheers ed001 mate.

{Ed001's Note - they have kept it very quiet.}


2.) 02 Sep 2021 20:36:00
Did he travel for the internationals? Anyone know.


3.) 02 Sep 2021 21:33:46
No, none of the Brazilians have travelled as I understand it.


4.) 02 Sep 2021 21:44:52
When lfc keep injuries quiet I get worried.

6 weeks I heard.


6.) 03 Sep 2021 08:06:10
luckily we didn't need to strengthen that area.


7.) 03 Sep 2021 11:44:36
Yeah, down to Salah, Mane, Jota, Taki, Origi, Elliot, Ox (at a push) who can play up front if we want to stay with a 4-3-3. Of course, if we go to 4-5-1 or 4-2-3-1 it will be weeks before we all have to become hysterical. Oh, hang on Bobby will be back by then …….

Morning Ed002 -

Quick question if I may, do under 21 players count as home grown - Curtis and Elliot?

Also, how is our quota looking? And and Shaqiri moving, would there be space for another foreign signing come January?

Apologies for the scatter gun questions

Drogs.

Drogie

{Ed002's Note - No the U21 are of no relevance in squad size. You will have to tot up the number of non-HG over 21 players.}


1.) 01 Sep 2021 13:23:27
Total First Team Squad Players : 28
Homegrown : 10
Under 21 : 4
Total needing registering : 24
Homegrown needing registering : 7

I expect Karius will go on loan bringing the first team squad number and over 21s needing registering numbers down to 27 and 23 respectively. That would leave space for a ‘foreign’ signing in January if needed. We already have space for a homegrown player over 21 to join.


 

 

31 Aug 2021 09:31:18
I used to love transfer deadline day, coming on here, seeing rumours that Messi was spotted in the 12th man pub, having a pint before signing signing etc, it was a good laugh.

Now, damn me, it's like getting ready for death row, anyone would think we're Arsenal and bottom of the league


Don't know how you do it Ed's

Drogie.

I’d take the tabloid quotes with a pinch of salt, full of rubbish most the time.

If though it were true, we’d have to seriously think about what we do. If we pay salah £500k per week, it blows the wage structure out of the water, with other senior players thinking “ hang on a minute, where’s my bumper pay rise.

I’d hate to see Salah go, he’s been superb but it wouldn’t be the end of the world. So many thought the team would fall apart when we sold coutinho, look what happened.

Lots of big clubs sell star players, we’ve done it all through our history- fergie was the master at it in the 90’s and 00’s - And just recently Chelsea, sold Hazard and a few others, invested well and now have a great squad

Hi Ed002,

Cheers.

We all want to be winners Mark do we not? Amd we all know what shankley and Paisley have said.
I don’t want be labelled supporting a team in circumstances I mentioned above.

Ironically enough, we have been turned into PL winners under FSG unlike previous owners - another point I have strong views on.

Only one person on here that I’d take any notice of when it comes to finances - that’s Ed002….

Sorry Balboa

Yes we might not be able to afford any more players this season and of course I’d like to see the likes of Bissouma or and a wide player, but we have a decent team.

Do we want to be labelled as cheats like city? I mean, they can’t even fill their stadium, even though they practically have two first teams!

Do we want to be labelled plastic? Look at Chelsea, loads of dosh through Roman - I’ve been to stamford bridge on a number of European nights, plastic flags to wave on every seat in the home end, they were nothing for 50 years as the kop banner states.

United, a number on the stock exchange! A PLC, not a football club

I’ve seen us through the Moore’s era, no way did we spend like we have done over the last few seasons, transfer fees or wages - hence no league title for 30 years….

Then we have the stadium, great new main stand ( hospitality is second to none ) annie road being developed, new training ground - yes we know how it’s been funded, at least it’s being done!

I think the last few transfer windows haven’t been too shabby - Jota, Tomiskas ( looks a bargain ) Thiago and Konate - like I said earlier would love bissouma but if we don’t we don’t.

Opponent should have scored mate, got behold the Chelsea defence a couple of times - missed a tap in with about 10 mins to go.
