Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ben Woodburn, and Herbie Kane have all been nominated for the 2018 European Golden Boy award.

Bodes well for the chances of the latter two making the grade, they're in among the likes of Trent, De Ligt, Aouar, Foden and Cutrone - stellar company indeed. I didn't realize Herbie Kane was so highly rated.

Mbappe will win it again imo and by a landslide.

2.) 02 Jul 2018 09:19:48
Probably (and deservedly), but that doesn't mean getting nominated isn't a big personal achievement for the lads.

3.) 02 Jul 2018 13:13:33
Trent might be in with a sneaky shout. He did play in the champions league final had had a solid season for a young kid in a tough position.

Mbappe will most likely win it again.

4.) 03 Jul 2018 03:58:51
Trent should make top 3, maybe 2nd.

I found your article on Parry and to a lesser extent, Moores, Hicks and Gilette, to be an excellent read and very informative, Ed001, thank you for taking the time to put it together.

It's such a shame that those buffoons (Hicks, Gillette and Parry) were the ones calling the shots throughout Rafa's time at the club, Rafa is an excellent tactician and has a great eye for talent and without Parry's incompetence and H and G's greed obstructing him, it's hard to imagine that we wouldn't have been far more successful. It's testament to Rafa's ability as a manager that we actually managed to win anything under H and G's ownership.

I ruefully imagined what our 2009 team would've been like with the additions of Villa/ Aguero, David Silva, Ronaldo and Dani Alves and some depth and it's safe to say that Parry cost us dearly. It just makes you appreciate even further the way we're being run today, both in the transfer market and commercially as well too. Klopp is allowed to do his job to the best of his ability rather than being stifled by incompetent clowns *cough cough* Parry and greedy owners *cough cough* Hicks and Gillette. If FSG and Klopp hadn't come along, I'd still be rueing what could've been if that leech Moores had acted in the best interests of the club rather than himself and sold us to proper owners rather than greedy clowns.

Reading all of that just makes you appreciate FSG even further. They saved us from bankruptcy, have stabilised us financially, are helping us catch up commercially and have already kept their word re expanding the ground and are looking to expand it even further. Them seeking to expand Anfield rather than knock it down and build a new one, also shows that they get the club. They don't take money out of the club and run us in sensible way financially too. They may not be perfect but they are certainly good owners.


{Ed001's Note - thank you Lemuel. 7th time lucky was that? Don't worry I won't tell if you don't. It does make you wonder you are right. Could Rafa have actually gone one better than second with the right CEO alongside him?}

1.) 23 Aug 2019 04:59:30
Lol Ed, you're being generous there, probably closer to 20. I think we'd have definitely won the league during Rafa's tenure as manager, if we'd have had proper owners and a proper CEO, who got Rafa the players he wanted; even with all the different factors in play we still only finished 4 points behind them in that fateful 08/ 09 season.

{Ed001's Note - it is a shame we will never get to find out.}

2.) 23 Aug 2019 05:32:20
I believe he could have. Rafa always had the tactical measure of Alex Ferguson and Fergie knew it, which I think partially explains the (public) animosity towards Rafa.

Ed, one thing I’ve always thought hindered Rafa’s time with us was his tendency to stock up the squad with low-quality players every summer. You spoke about it in the Parry article about the Pennant vs Alves debacle, but is that the same reason why Rafa seemed to always pile high the Latin no-names our squad forever seemed to be infested with?

{Ed001's Note - it certainly didn't help that Parry wanted cheap players and so encouraged Rafa to look for bargains.}

3.) 23 Aug 2019 09:41:19
First of all loved the article it gave a great insight into the shambles thay was being run and set up. Re:rafa piling up on the lower quality would it be him signing more to hope one might come good?

I do wonder what would have happenend if we got the arab money or even some of them mentioned players.

Would we buy the wrong players with money aka city at the start.

Would said players reach the potential they did if at Liverpool?

{Ed001's Note - Parry would have been out on his ear if DIC had bought the club, that is something that can only have been a good thing!}

4.) 23 Aug 2019 10:33:33
Ed01,the notion of DIC booting out Parry, could be one of the reasons why he helped scupper the deal cos he knew they would get rid cos these guys were clearly serious people who were not messing about. And with serious people, they can smell arrogant incompetence (a dangerous combo) from a mile out and Parry prolly knew that too.

{Ed001's Note - exactly the point I was making in the article when I referred to H&G clinching the deal by offering Moores and Parry guaranteed jobs. Though the multi-million pound bonuses would have helped too.}

5.) 23 Aug 2019 11:30:21
Brilliant article, really makes you appreciate the owners, CEO and structure we have now. We are finally catching up commercially, the squad gets the right investment, Klopp's relationship with the structure seems good and the stadium development and training ground redevelopment are progressing nicely.
Good owners/ CEO/ structure/ management = success in all departments.

Still to this day I wonder how far we could have gone if we'd signed Aguero, Silva and Simao.

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate.}

6.) 23 Aug 2019 14:36:36
What was your opinion of Tom Hicks Ed? He seems to come across as a bit more sensible than George Gillette on the podcast.

{Ed001's Note - he had a bit more idea of what he was doing, but he was still only like the Glazers, looking to cream money off into his own pocket. He just wanted to have the club make more money so he could take a bigger cut. However that is better than Moores, who just wanted to sit on his fat arse and take take take.}

7.) 23 Aug 2019 20:26:28
Hi Ed001, thank you for writing such an insight article! Feel sorry for Rafa, he's a top manager and he's often got shafted. I look forward to reading more of your articles when they are released :-) have a good bank holiday weekend mate!

{Ed001's Note - thank you RH, you too mate.}

8.) 24 Aug 2019 12:40:28
Kieran to be fair you’d have to factor in the context of the immediate after-effects of Hillsborough mate.
There was a real need for the club to be seen to give back to the fans and the city and, in hindsight, this hindered the commercialisation of LFC in the 90s.
The club just couldn’t be seen to be as brazenly commercial as it is now, it would have been wrong and unacceptable.
Having said that, as Ed001 said, that was the time for David Moores to have become the saviour in developing / rebuilding the ground - Celtic managed to do it back then so Liverpool should have been able as well?

Hi Eds, is it possible for you to tweak things re the log in, so it shows your password as black dots rather than the actual characters? Concerned someone may come to know my password.

Ed002 lol.

2.) 04 Oct 2018 11:07:42
Thanks Ed.



15 Aug 2018 06:39:04
Ed001, now that pre-season is out of the way and the players have been reassessed, would it be possible to please get an update from you on which of the youngsters at the club are most highly thought of and which of the youngsters at the club are thought to have the best chance of progressing into the first team?


{Ed001's Note - I will have to ask for you mate, I haven't caught up on that yet.}

1.) 15 Aug 2018 13:29:54
Thanks Ed.

I can't find the post with the review of the day article so will just do a separate post but with the allegations of bullying, Neymar has just gone down even further in my estimations. He is a poster boy for everything that is wrong with the game today: he is selfish, a diver, self-centered, arrogant, play acts and is now allegedly a bully. It's a shame someone like that has been blessed with so much talent.


1.) 11 Jul 2018 16:54:29
I don't rate him at all, wouldn't be in my top 20 players.

He has the flair to be the next Ronaldinho but it doesn't look like he even enjoys playing, he moans and he's selfish and actually pretty wasteful.

I'd put him on the same level as Zaha or Bolasie maybe.

2.) 11 Jul 2018 16:58:36
Zaha or Bolasie 😂😂😂😂

Surely a fish, but I’ll bite! 🙂.

3.) 11 Jul 2018 17:01:29
I could be wrong, but I am sure I once read an interview he did where he said he see’s football as just a job. Maybe that’d explain it?

I agree though. Can’t stand the guy. Waste of a talent.

4.) 11 Jul 2018 17:08:11
Neymar is a wonderfully gifted footballer but as we all know his attitude stinks. In my experience leopards don't change their spots so expect him at Real Madrid soon getting paid silly amounts to play some exceptional football and embarrassing theatrics!

5.) 11 Jul 2018 17:08:12
Of course he's a bully. I'm surprised that surprises anyone. He tries to bully the refs for god sake. I wouldn't be surprised to hear he hits a ref oneday.

He is a wonderful footballer though, he is one of the best in the world. Unfortunately he's been told that all his life and has become a disgusting little monster.

6.) 11 Jul 2018 17:24:01
Odious little cretin he is.
I would love to be a 7 ft tall nutjob defender playing against him, I would tackle him straight into row Z.

7.) 11 Jul 2018 17:52:02
Neymar is no longer relevant to me as a footballer. I've moved on.

8.) 11 Jul 2018 18:50:00
Lol, well said brover.

9.) 11 Jul 2018 20:24:27
I would of loved it if he attempted an overhead kick and spooned it, the ball then hit that camera that is controlled by wires above the stadium, broke and fell and then landed on top of him. Give him a proper injury to cry about.



26 Jun 2018 03:29:35
It's a shame Rodgers got rid of Aspas before Klopp came in, he could've proven to be a very valuable squad player for us. Versatile and proven himself to be a good goalscorer over in Spain.


1.) 26 Jun 2018 05:34:27
He had his opportunity and didn't take it. there's plenty of good players who couldn't perform in the Premier League - Di Maria, Falcao, Veron, Morientes, etc.

{Ed001's Note - what opportunity? He never got a chance, that was the problem. Rodgers did nothing to help the lad, who was struggling to settle in England due to the culture change from where he was from in Spain. To make matters worse, he was up against Suarez and Sturridge on fire for a place in the team, so he spent the season mainly picking splinters out of his backside. He did not get a worthwhile opportunity and the club as a whole did not do enough to help the lad settle into life in a new country. They should be using him as an example of how not to treat new signings.}

2.) 26 Jun 2018 08:30:08
You know what Ed001, Aspas would have thrived under Klopp, he’s definitely the sort of forward that Klopp likes.

{Ed001's Note - very much so, he is well suited to Klopp's style.}

3.) 26 Jun 2018 09:23:46
If I remember correctly, in the season we brought Aspas in, he was directly responsible for 50% of his teams goals or assists. Was massively under rated by Liverpool supporters when he was here, even though he was up against the on fire SAS duo. Was a good player then, even better now.

4.) 26 Jun 2018 09:57:00
Yeah and he also made that impeccable cross.

That was enough asscrack for me.

{Ed001's Note - and that says far more about you as a supporter than anything else. Pathetic. One mistake and dicks like you turn on players. I really have no time for the likes of you.}

5.) 26 Jun 2018 10:16:19
I felt sorry for him while he was here and am glad he put it behind him so well once he returned to Spain and flourished.

Fair play to the man that showed strong character.

6.) 26 Jun 2018 10:43:31
A bit harsh there kloopsboss, considering how we treated the lad a single mistake is no reflection on his ability. Guy went through the whole season hearing Liverpool fans telling him how physically weak his for the league, consistently being compared to SAS and playing for a 1 dimensional manager who over relied on a certain way to win games. Come on.

7.) 26 Jun 2018 12:07:16
FranklyMrShankly, completely agree mate.

Kloppsboss, shame on you, why even comment? People like you do my bloody head in.

Good luck to Aspas, I always thought there was more to the lad and he's gone off and proved it. Respect.

8.) 26 Jun 2018 16:48:51
The game against Chelsea was lost by that point already through a combination of Gerrard slipping and Rodgers Hubris. The Aspas corner made little difference in the wider picture.

9.) 27 Jun 2018 20:55:05
Asspas was utter garbage and far to weak for this league.

That cross was the nail in the coffin but he had showed absolutely nothing.

He's not even good enough for Everton over here

As for one dimensional. Klopp pretty one dimensional. Gerrard cost us the league not Rodgers. He did every with the squad he had. Like klopp last year and they both failed. Zero trophies in what 7 years?

Mango, why take a risk and move Trent from a position he is arguably the best in the world in at present and where he contributes so much to our team in an attacking sense, to midfield, where his crossing, which is his best attribute, would not be as easily utilised? The way we play, he's basically a right midfielder anyway. Plus, in the modern game, full backs are very important and a good full back is hard to come by, well certainly more difficult to find than a good midfielder.

Furthermore, there's no guarantee that he'd be as effective in midfield as he is at right back, given that he'd have less time on the ball in the midfield. If you look at things from a Liverpool perspective, rather than a Trent perspective, it makes even less sense, as we have an abundance of midfielders, most of whom are under the age of 30 and we need an attacking midfielder. It's Klopp's call but personally I'm strongly against this idea.

Well he wouldn't have to do any defending at Barca, so he might actually do quite well.

Can also play at right back, passionate, has chemistry with Lovren, has plenty of experience and unlike Matip, actually seems to know how to defend. As a back up option, I'm all for it. Vida in, Matip out would be good business.

I'm not even thinking about it until I see him doing the Melwood lean. One of those that's very unlikely to happen.

If you think there are many players who can replace a 30 goal and 10 assist minimum a season player then you are greatly deceived. The only player I feel could replace what Salah does for us is Mbappe, his movement is exceptional, defenders fear him, he draws players towards him, he scores plenty, gets a reasonable number of assists and his pace means the opposition will always be wary of him.

To me that just says you underappreciate him. He's the record goal scorer in a single premier league season, a back to back golden boot winner and a PFA player of the year winner. Players that good don't come along too often.

The good thing for us is that we don't have to sell any of the world class players that make up our devastating front 3, so why even think about it?

It's a nothing situation, Salah could've passed but how many times has he scored in that situation? Countless times, he's in the box and has every right to shoot, Mane had scored and he hadn't, which I'm sure ran through his mind as well. I can also understand Mane's frustration at the situation but I feel it was an overreaction. If Salah was a selfless player, he wouldn't have the ridiculous number of goals he has, Mane is also a goalscorer, all goalscorers need a bit of selfishness and more often than not our front three get the balance right between selfishness and selflessness. Anyways massive thank you to the eds and all of you posters that make my day so much better every time i come on here. The first thing i look at in the morning and last thing before bed! YNWA.

Did Fergie actually handpick him or was he asked to give Moyseh his backing so the fans would get behind him? Genuine question as I'm surprised that he'd make such a poor selection for his replacement.
