Just saw claims we're scouting Nicolas Pépé. Random name Eds or anything to it?
Thanks v much.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - He would be a straight replacement for Salah - will there be space with Dybala, Insigne and all of the others? I would not hold your breath.}

1.) 17 Apr 2019 14:14:54
Haha, thought so. But yes I hear Klopp is planning on changing to a 2-2-6 formation next season. :)

2.) 17 Apr 2019 17:12:50
Pepe looks an incredible talent, however he's blatantly moving elsewhere.

3.) 17 Apr 2019 17:29:25
2-2-6 is a little conservative when surely all we need at the back is Virgil though. Typical Klopp 😂😂.

4.) 17 Apr 2019 18:24:08
Where's he going semi?

5.) 17 Apr 2019 18:34:15
We pretty much already play 2-5-3, considering that our full backs spend more time in the opposition's half than our own.

6.) 17 Apr 2019 19:52:24
Eds2 that would be a strong bench.



01 Feb 2019 11:30:52
Eds any idea what happened with Bobby Adekanye? Was the Lazio move ever on and what does his future have in store at Liverpool or elsewhere?
Thanks a bunch.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - There was no deal with Lazio - but it is down to another player wanting first team time - a growing problem.)

1.) 01 Feb 2019 23:03:24
are you allowed to mention the player in question? are we talking about a certain striker who is out injured at the moment.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry I wasn't clear. Adekanye is another player who thinks he should be starting for the first team.}

2.) 02 Feb 2019 08:14:19
Ahh with you! Mean he has had a few good games but has lacked the consistency to be getting into the first team squad!

{Ed002's Note - There is a significant issue with young players wanting, and in some cases, demanding first team football.}

3.) 02 Feb 2019 13:47:39
Specifically Liverpool or generally?

I think Media hype means youth players see themselves as superstars already rather than having to keep your head down and work hard for the opportunity.



13 Sep 2018 08:47:35
Interesting stuff on The Injury Insight about Fekir's knees.

Eds if we assume that Klopp still wants a leftish creative mid, are any of y'all aware of any Liverpool are looking at?
Thanks a bunch.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool making efforts to look at any specific left-sided midfield players at this time and I would not expect too much to happen in January beyond clearing the decks if they can of Lazar Markovic and perhaps Chirivella and Origi if he is not being used. They are still looking at players but I am not aware of any desire to add another in midfield at this time.}

1.) 13 Sep 2018 09:07:45
Okay cool, thanks amillion Ed002.

2.) 13 Sep 2018 11:12:41
Thank you Jurgen Meister for the reference to 'The Injury Insight'. A good informative web site which I wasn't familiar with before your post.

3.) 13 Sep 2018 11:48:27
That really is a great article. Thanks for sharing Jurgen Meister.

4.) 13 Sep 2018 12:18:18
My pleasure guys, yep it's very interesting site alright.
I'm just trying to work my way through the 'Karius Concussion Conundrum' article now. :)

5.) 13 Sep 2018 17:54:23
What a great article Jurgen Meister, I personally am recovering from an ACL injury right now and I had the same surgery type as Fekir which is interesting (involving the process of replacing your ACL with a cadaver’s) .

6.) 14 Sep 2018 07:48:00
Interesting read.
The mere fact that Liverpool went after Fekir so strongly, in knowledge of his knee problems, was surely testament to Klopp’s admiration of his ability.
It’s a shame about his injuries, and I hope he goes on to have a long and successful career, but I do think that pulling out of the deal was the right move in the end.
I don’t know if Fekir had wowed at the World Cup whether that would have made any difference at all, I suspect not, but it doesn’t look likely that Lyon will be getting that type of offer for Fekir in the future.



20 Aug 2018 10:25:31
Just reading that it's looking like Karius will get his move but Migs could stay, for now. Do you believe this to be the case Eds?
Thanks very much.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - possibly, but Migs' reps are still trying to get him a move.}

1.) 20 Aug 2018 13:57:18
Is there a possibility that they could both leave and we have the youngsters as back up.

2.) 20 Aug 2018 13:52:59
If both get a move are there any free agents we could move for as back up?

3.) 20 Aug 2018 14:20:24
Is the move permanent?

4.) 20 Aug 2018 14:20:48
Pepe Reina?

5.) 20 Aug 2018 17:42:25
Reina joined AC Milan in the summer.

6.) 20 Aug 2018 17:59:46
Oh man! I miss the bald headed buffoon 😂.



02 Jul 2018 11:20:57
John Achterberg was in Tallaght on Friday to watch promising goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu. The 16 year old Bazunu is keeping 36 year old veteran keeper Alan Mannus out of the side atm, after taking his place due to injury and keeping 3 vlean sheets in a row so far. This kid has a bright future and is also attracting interest from other English clubs including Brighton and Norwich.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 02 Jul 2018 13:01:29
I'm a little perplexed whether some people can read properly when sb clicks the thumbs down on a post that stats facts, not opinion. The only thing I can think of is that 'vlean' is not a word, in which case, you got me.

2.) 02 Jul 2018 16:02:19
There's an old Yorkshire saying that goes "there's nowt queer as folk".
In a nutshell it means that some people are numpties.
Don't let people disliking what you post bother you, life's too short.

3.) 02 Jul 2018 18:32:30
Agree with you, FTR.

4.) 03 Jul 2018 23:23:04
FTR it’s “there’s nowt so queer as folk” 👍.

22 Apr 2019 13:48:20
Sorry Ed001 I'm trying and failing to wait for your match review. Mostly because so so many pundits are giving Matip their MOTM against Cardiff. Presumably because he was given the freedom of the park to make a few loping runs forward. Eye catching but they ultimately came to nothing. What did you think of him, your MOTM?

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - I haven't done the review yet as I have not had a chance to watch the game a second time. Just about to try and sit and watch it again but no Matip was not bad but he was far from MOTM imo. Van Dijk had the better game and his one run forward was for more effective than all of Matip's put together. So I wouldn't even have Matip down as the best centre back, let alone MOTM.}

1.) 22 Apr 2019 14:02:18
I thought as much. Thanks Ed.

{Ed001's Note - I personally wish he wouldn't allow himself to be tempted into making those forward runs. He would be better moving the ball on quickly as he has a good passing range.}

2.) 22 Apr 2019 14:40:37
The guy has a decent game but people still looking for a way to put him down. Does it just that much to give anyone some credit.

3.) 22 Apr 2019 15:10:12
I agree he had more than a decent game, just not MOTM. I also thought his forward runs indirectly made things happen at a time when our passing was ponderous. I like Matip and hope he stays instead of Lovren. I just know Ed001 isn't Matip's biggest fan, so i was interested in his opinion.

{Ed0333's Note - the thing with Matip he’s not gonna improve year on year. He has a limited skill set coupled with lapses in concentration will cost us if he hasn’t got VVD to help him. For example a pairing of say Gomes and Matip would fill me with dread and would concede a lot more than VVD and Matip. Matip doesn’t get needlessly slagged off he gets abused because he’s not that good. When he plays will he gets lauded but his bad performances far out weigh his bad. I’m ambivalent about him staying next season.

4.) 22 Apr 2019 15:11:27
His runs forward do not fill me with confidence, he had an okay game but certainly not motm in my opinion. I thought gini was a good shout for motm.

5.) 22 Apr 2019 15:23:40
I fully understand eds annoyance at matips runs forward as in that game we were countered on but in general I think his runs forward generally cause havoc in the opposition defences and have rarely had any consequences for us and though they rarely lead to goals they often lead to chances being created and general panic, in some occasions I'd say he's been our best midfielder against the lower league opposition and as long as he's being covered I have no problem with him continuing to do it as long as the structure allows him to do it.

{Ed0333's Note - I think you must be watching a different Matip mate because our won isn’t what you describe, in fact I’d be interested in signing the Matip you’re on about lol.

6.) 22 Apr 2019 15:10:12
I agree he had more than a decent game, just not MOTM. I also thought his forward runs indirectly made things happen at a time when our passing was ponderous. I like Matip and hope he stays instead of Lovren. I just know Ed001 isn't Matip's biggest fan, so i was interested in his opinion.

7.) 22 Apr 2019 17:32:25
We won 2-0 away from home against a team who put 11 men in their own box and were so intent on time wasting they didn't even have any ball boys. Nobody played badly.

8.) 22 Apr 2019 18:47:08
I think Klopp wants Matip to run the ball out and on more than one occasion yesterday Vvd was directing him to run it forward with arm movements. If Klopp didn’t want Matip to run it out then he wouldn’t be doing it against his managers will. We all know Klopp doesn’t suffer fools.

9.) 22 Apr 2019 16:56:51
If matip doesn’t have scope for improvement lovren certainly doesn’t either Ed.

{Ed0333's Note - I’m not sure about that mate. Lovren has the capacity to be very good on a more consistent basis than Matip. Also lovren suffers from emotional issues which he sees a psychologist for. He’s a sensitive guy and when everything’s right in his personal life it has a positive influence in his professional one. During the World Cup he had daily psychologist sessions with the creation team Dr and he was excellent.

10.) 22 Apr 2019 22:34:43
I think when he goes forward with the ball, it gives us a numerical advantage because our mids can then look for open spaces further upfield. My perception is that it's usually 50/ 50; half the time he gives it away and half the time he finds a mid or a forward in the last third. As long as we don't suffer because of the space he leaves open behind (VVD usually should be covering), I don't think it's a bad thing. I don't recall taking in a goal because of his forward runs. He does come up with a gem of a pass from time to time; it certainly adds some variety to our attack. And if Klopp has not put an end to it, then I am assuming it has his blessing.

11.) 22 Apr 2019 22:35:39
I distinctly remember one of his runs forward where Cardiff were able to get the ball to counter, and Matip was just jogging back without a care in the world and took a lot of time to get back. It’s this lack of motivation to try and do the best job he can do that grinds my gears. Definitely not MOTM for me - but Glad that we kept a clean sheet.

12.) 22 Apr 2019 22:39:10
Matip was not MOTM, IMO even tho he had a solid game and kept Niase very quiet (not hard to do as he had NO support) . Ed01 is spot on im his assessment of Matip. As a Matip critic, I don't buy into the whole "he makes good runs in the opposing half" stuff. If people have not been paying attention, teams have been letting him do that as a tactic for weeks now. They let him saunter forward while all the passing lanes are blocked. He then tries to pass the ball after he is WAY too far forward. The oppo. nicks it and we are vulnerable at the back. I mean, this is not rocket science cos if I can see it then anyone can if they actually cared to pay attention during games.

Matip is not good enuff for us long term and like Ed said, were VVD not next to him, we would be in a world of hurt cos he switches off, lacks concentration, lacks aggressiveness in the challenge and goes walk about hence leaving VVD to cover the space and we are thin at the back (See Saints goal by Shane Long) . Matip has played well in some games (vs Bayern at home, at Burnley, both games vs B'mouth) BUT in the games he has not played well in, that should be called out as well.

13.) 23 Apr 2019 08:28:24
clearly matip taking the ball forward is an instruction by Klopp with the amount of times he does it, it mixes up our attack and gives the opposition something different to think about and he does it well. I am not his biggest fan but 40 yard switches to full backs can sometimes be too obvious.

14.) 23 Apr 2019 14:58:00
If one of the centre-backs is going to surge forward with the ball, the other needs to stay back and cover. Id rather Matip went forward leaving VVD as our last line of defence than the other way around.



21 Apr 2019 20:42:54
Did a quick search for Fabinho's name on here and didn't find it, so just want to say, my favourite thing about tonight's game was Klopp saying in the press conference that "he is fine. " YNWA. We roll on.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 21 Apr 2019 21:06:11
In addition, it was good to see our medical staff make the decision to pull him from the game. Football is pretty bad at recognising the importance of concussion (they pay platitudes to it, but when push comes to shove they let players stay on when they probably shouldn’t) and so to take off a guy who’d only been on for a minute or two was obviously not an ideal decision, but the 100% correct decision. Well done to the on field medical team.

2.) 21 Apr 2019 21:11:19
Hmm, someone dislikes the fact that Fabinho isn't concussed?
Seems we've a bit to go.

3.) 22 Apr 2019 03:55:24
Agree with you hopeful - was great to see a professional decision being made by the medical team and looking after the player. Too many times in this league players are continuing on after dangerous head injuries and concussion.

4.) 22 Apr 2019 09:27:59
Yes exactly hopeful. Fabian Schär playing on for Switzerland recently after a serious head injury was shocking and should never have been allowed. So yes the Liverpool medical and coaching staff should be commended for taking the quick and correct decision to get Fab off the pitch and under observation.

Bringing in a temporary concussion substitution is something that could be looked at by the authorities.

12 Apr 2019 09:58:23
I see Matty Virtue is already doing great things in League 1 since his January move to Blackpool. 3 goals and an assist in 10 games. After his 6 goals in the first half of the season for our U23s I can't help but wonder why he was allowed to leave on a permanent deal for tuppence when a goal scoring midfielder is actually one of the few tings our first team squad is missing. (keep 'em comin Naby) .

Ed001 or others have you heard anything about the lad or why this seemingly odd transfer was sanctioned? Much thanks as always.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed001's Note - because he was nowhere near breaking into the first team squad and needed (and wanted) to play first team football.}

1.) 12 Apr 2019 11:11:15
My father-in-law is a Blackpool fan and he said the fans made their minds up early on that Virtue was crap! He himself has only recently started going back again and says he is seems decent but I don’t think he’s anywhere near Liverpool level if fans of an average league one team are questioning if he’s good enough for them.

{Ed003's Note - Just recently gone back myself as well cobra :-) I think it has taken some time to get up to speed for the lad, but from what I have seen, he seems a very good prospect - whether he is L'pool standard only time will tell. }



21 Mar 2019 08:36:47
I spotted something quirky yesterday while browsing the birth dates of our players for some unknown reason. (while doing a very good impression of working) . It looks likely that we will lose most if not all of our remaining players born in the 80s. A great decade, but that's a good thing. Letting go of Mignolet, Lovren, Milner, Lallana and Sturridge will see a large chunk off our wage bill without affecting the team a great deal (and the couple of fullbacks) . Then just replace those with younger hungry players on lower wages (from within or without) and we're all set. Our squad only needs streamlining this summer, maybe one major signing but that's it.

Jurgen Meister

1.) 21 Mar 2019 09:35:38
Milner is still earning his money for me. Take weekend for example.

2.) 21 Mar 2019 10:18:56
I agree, Milner is an exceptional case and I would be happy to see him stay, but there is the possibility of him leaving for Leeds.

3.) 23 Mar 2019 12:00:15
I would not try to replace Milner and Lovren. If they want to stay or not is another matter.



14 Mar 2019 11:27:13
G'day Ed002, hope you're well.
You recently said "perhaps Pablo Sarabia has the skill set you want. "

I tend to agree I think he would be a perfect signing, and I just read that he's available on an €18 million release clause, is that so?

Did you mean that Liverpool has an interest in him or were you simply making a general observation about his skill set?

Thank you in advance for any answer and any insight into Sarabia's situation and possible destination.

Jurgen Meister

{Ed002's Note - I was just saying that in my view he would be a suitable attacking solution iof Liverpool needed one, and at a reasonable price - I would put aside the release clause as one EPL side has already held discussions, and Real Madid has an option.}

1.) 14 Mar 2019 12:36:31
I tell you what, recently origi has really won me over. I think he has the skill set to fill in at cf or lw. With keita lallana and shaqiri I think we have enough cover for the front three.

Sturridge, ah Danny boy. Loved him with suarez and also with sterling but his heart isn't in it anymore. I would ship him and hope brewster or Duncan can break through. If not I think we could look to signing a young striker with potential, I'd never heard of coutinio until we signed him. There must be some great little players out there for low sums. But yeah, origi. I totally underestimated the lad. He's only young and I think he can forge a Liverpool career. That said, if we win the league by 1 point Danny's goal at Chelsea will be seen as pivitol.

The question is always finding players willing to play second fiddle to our amazing front three. I believe we have them in the players I mentioned.

Question for anyone who knows, has keita ever played as a forward. He seems to have the perfect skill set to make it in our front three. Can beat players, can track back and can hit a belter of a shot.

I don't think we need much in the way of new signings. Cover for robbo, love alby but he is too rash. I think we have enough at rb with fab milly, hendo and gomez able to cover. We could do with a better back up than migs. Seeing his sulky face every week, even when 3 1 up at bayern is pissing me off. Maybe karius could provide decent cover.

The one position for me is a true attacking mid, high class who scores 8 to 10 goals a season. I know its not popular but I would love pipco back. Fekir is nowhere near as good as couts. I know counts is unpopular but he is a player of the highest quality. When he played the autumn before he left he was class behind Bobby mane and salah. If not courts or Fekir, who do people like? Rodriguez has been a name thrown about be he didn't do much last night. Mind you fab was all over him.

2.) 14 Mar 2019 12:58:25
I agree on Origi Robbies, he knows our system now and nobody can deny his workrate, a solid option for Bobby if you ask me.

3.) 14 Mar 2019 12:59:28
Does Maxi Rodriguez still play football?

4.) 14 Mar 2019 15:25:16
I agree with origi too, don’t forget Brewster outshined sancho and foden at the wc before his injury so big potential.

5.) 14 Mar 2019 13:58:35
Okay thanks a lot Ed002. I won't get my hopes up then. I guess he'd fancy a return to Madrid. I know he's pals with Carvajal. Will wait and see if Liverpool splosh a load of dosh on a goal-scoring midfielder like Bruno Fernandes.

{Ed002's Note - Bruno Fernandes (AM) is of interest to Everton, Manchester United, Milan and Liverpool who have all looked at him on two or more occasions. Spurs maintain an interest but only if Christian Eriksen leaves. Asking price has more than doubled from what was already a high price in recent months and that has pushed aside interest from Juventus who don't see the value, Valencia and CSKA. Whilst Bayern Munich and another EPL side have looked as well, neither have a declared interest that I know of and both have other AM targets.}

6.) 14 Mar 2019 19:20:47
Big Div makes things happen, he’s one of those players who doesn’t look like a superstar but he is very effective. Less of a risk to stick with him than buying another newbie.

7.) 14 Mar 2019 20:56:08
Lerchy-Brewster played the full tournament and Sancho was pulled by Dortmund after the group stage.

8.) 14 Mar 2019 19:08:39
Is there any chance of Liverpool signing Christian erikson? He would be perfect for us.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

9.) 14 Mar 2019 22:11:05
With you there, Robbie. I have NEVER given up on Divvy even in his worst moments. Why? WE all saw how great he was in his first season with us where he was just bossing several games, toying with CB's like they were out of fashion, keeping Studge on the bench and all that. He then got injured and it seems like his chance had gone.

I never believed that cos I am confident that the promising Origi we saw in the beginning, is still there and we can still see it in him in the games he has played this season. I believe he can still be a factor for us going forward BUT it will be up to him and also what Klopp wants in the transfer market. I am still hoping he wcan come good for us whether thru the middle or out wide cos he has ALL the tools needed to play these positions, IMO.

You're right there Har_red92, and with Caoimhin and Travers at Bournemouth it's nice to know Ireland's goalkeeping situation looks so bright for the future. A good loan for Kelleher would be beneficial, but needs to be considered carefully. Grabara's is the ideal example, he's having a great time in Denmark, keeping 4 clean sheets so far. He's helped AGF into the two-legged playoff final for the chance to progress to the Europa League playoff. All really good and important experience for him and apparently he is visibly growing in stature and confidence with every game. Shamal George on the other hand didn't play at all at Tranmere, for reasons that I'm not aware of. I think Kelleher is good enough to have an impact at a smaller club next season, but finding the right one will be crucial.

Haha, and yes Ed002 that was a weird question above. Migs is "the best number two in the Premier League" according to Klopp, so he certainly won't be third choice and we're only talking about someone coming in if he decides to move on for regular football. But his contract runs to 2021 so he may decide to stay, as has been repeatedly mentioned it's up to him.

I think the amount we're discussing the backup goalkeeper situation speaks volumes for how little work our squad will need this summer.

Haha, 'touted as surplus'? What does that even mean? Yeah I remember the Gini 'rumours' as well. Apparently Cocu wanted him at Fenerbahce, right? Yeah well I'm not surprised, but I want $1,000,000 in my bank account but wanting ain't getting. Gini was never available for transfer, is our most important midfielder atm and is happy playing for one of the top teams in world football. Ain't going nowhere.

Ohhhhhhhh Arda Turan! Arda, Arda, Arda, etc. etc.
That rumour should've had it's own terrace song. Just sayin. :)

So let's say Milner and Lallana leave. Eds is Grujic likely to leave also? Even so, then let's say Kane and Jones go on loan for the season. And we sign a creative goal-scoring midfielder (which Zielinski is not) . That still leaves us with Fab, Trent, Hendo, Gini, Naby, Ox.
I would argue that it makes more sense to play Grujic than buy Zielinski. But that's just me and my very average teeth!

I'd add Firmino to that World Class list. Plus in Trent and Robbo we've got two of the best fullbacks around atm who both should be considered world class if they maintain this form, if not already.

Wow Ruben Loftus-Cheek doing his achilles in a charity game in the US before a European Final. Whoever's responsible for scheduling that must be popular in South West London right around now. It just seems bizarre, Liverpool's players aren't even allowed to take long-haul flights. I'm all for raising money for charity but this has resulted in the worst case scenario for Chelsea and RLC (who i think would've started) .

I agree Ed0333, Spurs can be dangerous, but so can Ajax, and actually psychologically I've decided Spurs are the weaker team. I wanted a Liverpool Vs Ajax European Cup Final. But, Spurs? Okay!
We'll dominate them in every department. If they score one we'll score three.
They have dangerous forwards, but their defense, 'keeper, midfield are all far inferior to ours. We'll be fine.

So, just Champion's League Winners and Premier League Runners Up?
Oh well. I guess there could be worse clubs to be a fan of. YNWA!
