Eds is Phillips registered to play champions league now?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, in place of Joel Matip.}



17 Jun 2020 07:15:43
Morning eds1
Do you know was If there’s any injuries ahead of our game with Everton?

{Ed001's Note - Adrian, Salah and Robbo have knocks but are expected to be fit. Ox also looks like he could play after his ankle injury. That just leaves Shaq and Clyne as expected to miss out.}

1.) 17 Jun 2020 08:20:28
It’s been a while since we’ve had a team news update before a PL game Ed mate, very much missed. Let’s hope we get it done over the line soon as possible mate 😄.

{Ed001's Note - Arsenal can speed things up tonight with a result.}

2.) 17 Jun 2020 11:09:17
Pep is up to his usual mind games, moaning about how his players are not ready. If Arsenal is up to it, it should be one helluva game. We'll get a hint of what Arteta is capable of.

3.) 17 Jun 2020 10:29:04
If Arsenal draw with City I'll be amazed, but still, anything can happen!

4.) 17 Jun 2020 10:30:48
Thanks Ed, buzzing for the game on the weekend.
Must be frustrating for Shaq - is this an new injury do you know or one that’s been lingering?


{Ed001's Note - it occurred in February so not that new.}

5.) 17 Jun 2020 11:00:17
Yeah they could mate but can’t see it tbh can you?

{Ed001's Note - it is a strange world right now mate, anything could happen.}

6.) 17 Jun 2020 14:55:11
It’s interesting how Naby Keita constantly gets slated for picking up injuries and yet there is nowhere near the same level of abuse for Shaqiri despite the fact that Keita has played more games for Liverpool than Shaqiri.

7.) 17 Jun 2020 15:25:36
Thunderbird 2, that's probably down to cost of player and expectation of impact he would make.

8.) 17 Jun 2020 18:59:11
And to be fair to Shaqiri he did score a winning goal against Man U. So that puts a lot of credit in the bank.

9.) 17 Jun 2020 19:00:39
We all know shaq is gone, it almost feels like he has downed tools cos he is not a starter or a klopp favourite . On the other hand if he has genuinely been injured we don't need him we have players already that can't play ten games on the bounce .



28 Oct 2019 16:07:33
Hi Ed’s
Do you have any info about kesiktas wanting to cancel karius loan?

{Ed002's Note - There may be a possibility of it happening but it is complex.}

1.) 28 Oct 2019 20:31:41
I thought he was performing ok recently?

Or are there other reasons.

2.) 29 Oct 2019 08:08:40
The new Besiktas President has his own views on balancing the books and what shape success should take. What is the penalty to Besiktas for canceling the loan, Ed002, if they go through with it?

{Ed002's Note - Without seeing the contract I don't know - but rules are much stricter than they were.}



11 Jun 2019 18:14:21
Hi eds1
Is Danny Ings still joining Southampton after he’s loan is now finished?

{Ed001's Note - as far as I am aware it was all done before the end of the season.}

1.) 11 Jun 2019 18:58:59
Was the fee already agreed before the loan eds1.

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

2.) 11 Jun 2019 19:42:45
I know people will disagree but i still think Origi should be joining him. don't think he's up to competing with the front 3 over a long season.

3.) 11 Jun 2019 19:59:02
Little Naby I agree. Not knocking the lad for how he finished the season but he’s not good enough.

4.) 11 Jun 2019 23:38:10
Cue the fume when we don't bring in a £70 million front man to sit on the bench and instead give Origi a new contract.

5.) 11 Jun 2019 23:54:25
Little Naby not sure what more you want from the guy he was excellent in the close season and earned his place in this squad. You won't get top drawer players happy to sit on the bench and frankly it causes more problems than good, look how many want to leave city!

6.) 12 Jun 2019 09:17:27
He wasnt excellent Never, what player were you watching? Peoples minds are being muddled by the fact he scored a couple of goals on our way to number 6,oh and let's not forget the derby goal my granny would have put away. There was a time i really wanted it to work out for Origi but he's not good enough. How many teams were beating down our door to sign him last summer and January? And this isn't about wanting a shiny new £70-80m player to replace him, i would honestly rather see an academy player like Woodburn or Camacho play ahead of him because at least one they they MIGHT be good enough.

7.) 12 Jun 2019 12:36:35
It isn't a long season to Origi - along season playing every game then yes! When asked to do a job, he's done as best as poss.

8.) 12 Jun 2019 14:19:31
If he gets a new contract and sticks around i'll support him as a Liverpool player. I just don't think he should get that contract and we should sell him now while his stock is at its highest. We should be at a stage now where we have better than Origi on the bench. he'd struggle to get in a matchday squad for most of the top half of the table teams.

9.) 12 Jun 2019 14:35:49
He's the only natural finisher out of our front three, that said, I wouldn't start him over Mane, Booby or Mo but he can offer something different if we rotate him.

10.) 12 Jun 2019 15:04:01
I like having Divock as an option.
I liked his performances on the left the few times he played there.
IF he stays it will be because the club see his utility and he thinks he can do it.
That's all you can ask for.

11.) 12 Jun 2019 16:14:20
Little Naby and Pegleg, could you please tell me how many teams were beating down Andy Robertson's door when we signed him? And how on earth are you able to determine that Origi's stock is at the highest right now, at 24 years of age and coming back into form and reckoning?
You guys epitomize the exact thing that's wrong with modern fans, but I'm particularly disgusted because this kid has done everything he's been asked and has just played a major, major part in maintaining our title pursuit last season and winning us our first trophy in almost a decade.
To justify your nonsense you suggest that it might just be better to play Camacho or Woodburn. ahead of Origi, because, as you implied, they might just be better! It is truly pathetic that you feel the only way to measure our progress or readiness to win major trophies is by having better players on the bench than Origi. There was a time Machedo won Manchester United the league; John O'Shea; Felipe Anderson; list goes on.
I don't think we deserve anything with "fans" like you! I see now why Ed002 loves Liverpool fans! Keep it up!

12.) 12 Jun 2019 16:52:44
Noski wind your neck in lad. No need to bite their heads off. If you disagree that's fine but chill out man. People are allowed to have different opinions to you.

13.) 12 Jun 2019 16:56:39
I don’t think Origi is up to the task really, but I don’t think Bobby is either. Before everybody shoots me down, if you took him out of our side last season and replaced him with peak Torres, Saurez or Fowler, we win the league, I have no doubts about that. I love Bobby, he’s a fantastic player but if everyone thinks back to before we signed him, he was an attacking midfield player, not a forward. I would love to see him move back into midfield. Everyone seems to think we need a “Fekir” type player to open defences and score goals from midfield, I think Bobby can do that no problem. Sign a world class out and out striker would be my preference.

14.) 12 Jun 2019 21:02:17
Noski i don't epitomise anything, im supporting LFC 30 years and usually hate criticising one of our players but the lad is not good enough. IN MY OPINION. if you think he is then fine but i know most L'pool suppoters i know agree with me. if we hadnt completed a miracle comeback against Barcelona there would be very little people on this site in favour of keeping Divock.

15.) 12 Jun 2019 21:49:03
We beat West Ham away 3-2 Divock scored
We beat Everton at home 1-0 Divock scored
We beat Barcelona at home 4-0 Divock scored
We beat Spurs in CL final 2-0 Divock scored
He played 673mins and scored 7 goals and has a goal average of 1 every 96mins in 2018/ 19
He will sit on the bench and wait his chance and doesn't sulk.
When we needed him this season he was there.
Jose Mourinho speaking on RT said after the CL final that players like Divock are like gold dust. Jurgen it seems wants to offer him a new contract and people on here want rid of him?
He cost Liverpool £8mil, would people prefer we sold him and spent £50mil for someone else to sit on the bench and disrupt the squad because he's not getting a game?

{Ed025's Note - sounds like a brilliant player polecat, so if he had of played more maybe you would have won the league?, does that mean that klopp picked the wrong team at times?...maybe jurgen is not as good as i thought mate..

16.) 13 Jun 2019 00:11:55
My neck has truly be wound in, Campbell. I'm waiting for your Campbocopter to deliver the flashiest signing yet! Clear all the deadwoods and splish and splash!

17.) 13 Jun 2019 01:04:45
Divock is worth his place anyone who thinks otherwise is deluded and frankly wrong.

If Klopp sees him as good enough for the best team in europe then none of us are qualified to disagree.

18.) 12 Jun 2019 22:26:22
jurgens good enough to try and get rid last summer Ed025 but he wouldn't go to Wolves. For me if everyones fit he's not even 1st option off the bench i'd have Shaquiri on ahead of him, Ox too if he's on the bench.

{Ed025's Note - hes a different option i suppose naby, but if he does stay i cant see him starting many games mate..

19.) 13 Jun 2019 19:14:28

If Everton had a few players as good as him maybe they wouldn't have finished 43 points behind LFC?

{Ed025's Note - your right would have been 53, its yet another case of liverpool supporters over hyping one of their players, hes bench fodder and no more mate as next season will prove ( that is of course if they cant get shut of him)..

20.) 15 Jun 2019 09:01:21
I love what origi has done for us and his attitude has been great. His goals have all been instinctive which bobby lacks around the box. He's never one to grab a game and produce something out of nothing, all his goals have come from 6 yard tap ins apart from final.

I'd have no complaints if he stays. But I actually feel origi himself might want to leave. His latest quotes suggest he's deciding his next move. He's 24, another season of 700 minutes can't be what he wants.



02 Jan 2019 19:55:41
Hi eds
Is Solankes move to CP not going ahead now?

{Ed001's Note - for now yes.}

1.) 02 Jan 2019 20:23:48
Apparently, there are concerns over his fitness.
My opinion is that it may be difficult for him to go on loan because teams would need him to start playing immediately.
A permanent deal however may be different, because he may be afforded more time.
But that's just my opinion.

{Ed002's Note - That is not the issue - someone making unreasonable demands is.}

2.) 02 Jan 2019 20:54:07
Player looking for Guarantees no doubt then.

{Ed002's Note - No, that is not the issue.}

3.) 02 Jan 2019 22:09:32
Probably us demanding an excessive loan fee or insisting Palace cover all his wages.

4.) 02 Jan 2019 22:11:55
Am dumping it’s the club’s demands of playing time and feed.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 22:46:32

6.) 03 Jan 2019 01:52:31
Maybe we are trying to get some sort of agreement about Bissaka.

7.) 03 Jan 2019 05:55:10
Havent seen it asked yet, so here goes. ed2 who is making the unreasonable demands and what are they?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant. He will go elsewhere.}

8.) 03 Jan 2019 15:19:52
Doesn't Solanke have a very demanding father that was also part of the problem @ Chelsea?

9.) 04 Jan 2019 00:33:05
Is it not about CP signing too many loan players this season?

10.) 04 Jan 2019 00:38:46
Like where?

So if everything goes ok we will be allowed to have some fans back in Anfield for the last two games 👌🏻👌🏻.

1.) 05 May 2021 14:50:27
Would this not be the perfect time to "send a message" to the owners if nobody turns up?

2.) 05 May 2021 15:48:14
polecat, its a real catch 22, if you ask me.

Yes, it would send a message to the owners, who are the ones that have been driving the decisions like the ESL.

However, it would also adversely impact the players, the manager, and potentially the outcome of the top 4 this year.

If we have even a mathematical chance of qualifying for the CL then I would be doing everything I can to give the team the best opportunity.

3.) 05 May 2021 21:14:31
What message would you be trying to send?



02 May 2021 23:30:44
It will be interesting to find out when we are going to play this again as Man U have got a midweek game every week until the seasons finished apparently.

{Ed0666's Note - I’d play it behind closed doors and no crowd

1.) 03 May 2021 01:05:36
I hope the fans get as many games called off between now and the end of the season as is possible. It’s the only way they’ll take notice. It’s a given that violence is never welcome at a protest but it must also be recognised that 99.9% of the people present today didn’t hurt anybody and protested accordingly. Idiots and hangers on do not represent us, our fanbase know this better than anybody. The media won’t frame it that way because it suits their agenda to be on the side of the moguls that ruined the game in the first place. If pitch invasions and obstruction of games is what it takes, then so be it. It’s our sport, not theirs, and its about time they needed reminding of that. The fans should decide when they play.

Well done to the vast majority of united fans, you represented your club and the whole of english football proud today. I hope it isn’t too long before our own fans begin to take action in a similar fashion. I don’t want another game played until every single powerful body sits up and takes notice. This is so much bigger than the Big Six and the European Super League. FIFA, UEFA, the government, Sky, the Premier League, the gradual destruction of our game is all on you.

Time to be held accountable. Time for you to listen.

{Ed0666's Note - Have you given up you’re Sky subscription yet Anonymous?

2.) 03 May 2021 02:23:46
I assume that Anonymous Woolback will be one the streets on Liverpool protesting before the next home game.

3.) 03 May 2021 08:55:40
Woolback, I totally disagree yet again a policeman got injured for doing his job, a job where they have no power but are expected to go to work and its ok if they get injured, same as all protests its the police force who lose out, one of the policeman got his face slashed by mindless thugs. It was wrong, also why should the players have to stay in there hotels because of fears of safety, it was bang out of order.

4.) 03 May 2021 09:31:11
99.9%? Nonsense. Have a look at the pictures. Their was over 200 people broke into the bloody stadium fir a start. Vandalism, violence, breaking and entering, trespassing, assault, littering etc. It was an embarrassment to the sport. Gary Neville trying to coax the Liverpool fans into doing the same to push FSG out is absolutely shocking. Why on earth Sky haven't cut him from air yet is beyond me. I guess it's getting good viewing figures so they don't care about the violence he's inciting with his inflammatory words.

People die when the emergency services get their time wasted. Also, I've lived with a Police officer. They come home at 3am after an 18 hour shift covered in cuts and bruises, crying because they've had to plug a stab wound waiting for paramedics. Then when they calm down you know what they do? Get their bloody laptop out and have to write a report about all the thugs they had to deal with.

You act this is all an elaborate joke AW, that merely puts pressure on the owners, but it's not. This damages peoples lives. The Glazer's are somewhat Martyrs now, with a free pass to the moral high ground. It's done nothing to them. It'll hurt the Man Utd players and managers, and it'll hurt the emergency services who will still be dealing with the fallout of this in weeks if not months. It's not a nice reality. What you see on TV doesn't begin to convey the fear and trauma Police officers are put through when people like this riot. Anybody who supports what happened yesterday is trash in my eyes because i've seen first hand the damage it does to real peoples lives.

Completely and utterly ashamed of the way football fans behave sometimes. Because let's not pretend this is exclusive to Man United fans. Good people need to condemn this so it never happens again. And i pray that nobody was a victim of a delayed Emergency Services response yesterday due to the disruption caused for Police and Paramedics.

5.) 03 May 2021 09:46:04
Looks as though 15th/ 16th May is the only available slot to play the game.
If they disrupt any more fixtures it will have a detrimental effect on the Europa League Final on 26th as they already have to play 6 x games in 20 days.

6.) 03 May 2021 09:47:53
Listening to radio coverage of yesterday’s protest a number of commentators and pundits kept repeating protest should be done ‘the right way’ or ‘the correct way’ but never saying what the right or correct ways are. I think the argument boiled down to the rights and wrongs of Direct Action and the money in the game. The right to protest is enshrined in law and is a fundamental of our democracy yet it is being constantly eroded. The BLM protest that removed the Coloston statue reverberated around the world, the Extinction Rebellion protests have put the environment at the top of the political agenda. The rights and wrongs of yesterday’s protests are up for debate but by postponing the match the protesters have achieved worldwide headlines and we are talking about the elephant in the room which is the amount of money in the game, is it the lifeblood of the game or is it killing the game.
The paradox or hypocrisy is that many of the same protesters also want their club to win trophies and to attract superstar players, but those superstars will only play for their club if they are paid superstar wages and to pay superstar wages the clubs need broadcast money, high ticket prices, high replica kit prices, high burger prices ‘etc. ’
So although I strongly agree with peaceful protest I think, especially in the case of football (hardly important compared to racism or the environment), that willingly got into bed with Mammon, that the only form of protest that might achieve reaction is for the protesters to boycott their club, don’t buy season tickets, Sky subscriptions, replica kits for their kids or to change allegiance and to support FC Utd.

7.) 03 May 2021 09:56:23
I remember the days when the Mrs went shopping and I met me mates down the pub. A couple of pints in the Arkles then que outside the Kop for a 3 o'clock kick off, have a piss against the wall and watch the Reds. Ffin loved them times but that was taken away from me, by Sky, sending me down to Norwich on a Sunday morning for 1 o'clock kick off or to spurs for a Friday evening Kick off, not caring if you got home before 2 am. Times have changed, but don't be sucked in by Neville and Carragher, they work for Sky and if the big six did leave, not that I want them to it would hit Sky big time . Sky don't care about fans.

8.) 03 May 2021 10:11:19
Woolpack. totally disagree with everything you say. This was a violent and mindless act where a policeman's face was slashed with a bottle and mindless thugs caused loads of damage. Unfortunately they do represent the United fan base and I'd be embarrassed if we did the same. A disgrace on every level.

{Ed014's Note - me too, 100% agree with you. There’s no place for that kind of protest at any level.

9.) 03 May 2021 10:19:07
Barakdee, you are completely right. It's amazing how much more football fans seem to care about the league their teams play in, than they care about racism in the sport. Either way, peaceful protest is the only right way. Ed001 said it weeks ago. Hit them in the pocket. If you actually care, stop buying tickets, stop buying merchandise, and stop paying for Sky/ BT. If Man United get deducted points for this, the Glazer's won't care. The club is so commercially successful, they even don't need it to be in the Champions League. They'll pop round again next year for their dividends, and go hide in America again. Yesterday achieved nothing.

10.) 03 May 2021 10:41:12
1) I have never had a Sky Sports subscription myself, i either opt to use a private stream, go the pub, go to a friend/ family members house or go the match. Me and my Dad have often remarked at the hypocrisy surrounding disgruntled fans who complain of ticket prices, subscription prices and the S*n but continued for years to put money into Murdoch’s pocket. It is a large part of the reason we have never had a subscription.

2) Yes, i have maintained since the day the Super League was announced that if there is a protest, I will be there. I myself am not a fan group however and i am more or less waiting for something to be organised. I’m not sure why some people seem to be poking fun at this as if what is going on is some kind of joke.

3) Well Adam, given there was an estimated 10,000 people in total at the protest and 200 people made it inside the stadium, 200 as a percentage of 10,000 gives you 2%, so allow me to correct myself. It was 98% of people who behaved appropriately, not 99.9%.

4) As for the argument of empathising with the emergency services, i understand the inconvenience but unfortunately that is what protesting is, an inconvenience. If it isn’t inconvenient, nobody gets heard. What you’re saying is nobody should ever protest, as all protests will inevitably lead to resources being diverted from more important things (which i should remind you, football matches and nightlife do as well) . You’re also saying that nobody should ever protest in case you get idiot hangers on who take it too far, which invariably almost always happens, but should not be used to tarnish everyone else or the cause they are fighting for. So the answer in your book is to never protest in case anything goes wrong in any capacity, and we should all stay quiet and do as we’re told. I have literally just said i do not condone violence at protests so don’t you dare try and frame what i am saying as that and call me ‘trash’, the other 98% of those United fans who behaved correctly do not deserved to be lumped in with those individuals, just as much as we do not deserve to be lumped in with those convicted at Heysel or the idiot who threw the Kopparberg at the City bus. Stop virtue signalling for the emergency services when their extensive resources prop up the very sport you take for granted.

11.) 03 May 2021 11:09:59
My grandad was a police officer in Liverpool for years and ended up losing his eye when someone sharpened a beer bottle and shoved it in his face after he'd thrown them out the pub, so no, it's not clever.

12.) 03 May 2021 11:20:34
MK Scouser

It's too late for English fans to stop this. There are many many more supporters in the rest of the world who will pay for the ability to watch the big teams in the EPL and Europe. This is where the money is and the owners know it. They realise that the potential value of the clubs are in the region of 10 to 15 billion pounds, not the approx 3 billion that they are worth at the moment. When the value of the clubs reach around £10 billion, they will look to sell.

13.) 03 May 2021 13:12:19
Unless those protesting come out and make it absolutely clear those involved in all criminal acts have nothing to do with you it damages the whole message you are trying to put across. It is absolutely critical to maintain being on the right side.

Take this from the Manchester United supporters trust today:

“For the vast majority of the thousands of attendees at the protest they made their voice heard peacefully and respectfully. We support the right of fans to protest lawfully and, although we did not personally witness any such acts, of course we do not condone any acts of violence. ”

This doesn’t help. It’s an absolute cop out. Same as Neville and Carra yesterday.

Bordering on being apologist for yesterdays behaviour damages your message.

Most of what has come out of those who back those protests is yes people have gone too far and that’s wrong but they wouldn’t have had to do it if not for. that’s just the wrong attitude.

Hang those idiots out to dry and make it clear they and others who believe in such actions aren’t true fans nor are they welcome at any future protests.

The super league fiasco gave fans massive public and governmental support. If Things like this keep happening then that public support will die away. When that happens fans are finished.

14.) 03 May 2021 14:12:47
Where did this enormously inflated figured of 10,000 that AW quotes come from. Greater Manchester Police reported that around 1,000 people gathered at Old Trafford and around 200 at The Lowry Hotel, where the team were staying. So while it was a minority involved in the pitch and stadium offices trespass and the violence towards the police it was a significant minority.

Football fans have a long history of protests against their clubs' owners. I remember much worse scenes when United fans protested against The Edwards family ownership when they were relegated under Tommy Docherty. There are other models of ownership and in 2005 a group of their fans established FC United but despite having a recently built £6m stadium average attendances are less than 2,000. It appears that like most other fans these protestors want the "Big Time Charlie" club without the business and ownership models that accompany the necessary investment. While it is true that German clubs are run on a different model we cannot go back to year zero without somehow buying out the existing owners. Fans' collectives won't achieve it. Perhaps the protestors should have carried collecting buckets rather than bottles yesterday.

15.) 03 May 2021 15:08:37
Woolpack. however you try and justify it, its still not acceptable and never will be. In my opinion it just reflects badly on you and highlights a weak part of your morals and ethics. It's a game of football, nothing more and if you think violence is the answer and that is what you allude to then you are wrong. Please don't try and backtrack because your initial sentiments condone violence. Stupidity of the highest order.

16.) 03 May 2021 15:33:40
You know what the level of violence should be at any protest - zero. Its the only acceptable number.

People can say "oh it's just a small number" but ghandi and countless others for hundreds of years have enacted change with non violent peaceful protest.

The acceptable number is zero.



01 May 2021 08:24:51
Eds1 or anyone else am just wondering if you’ve watched mino at Southampton at all. How’s he been getting on.
Also with all the names people have been throwing around lately would you keep mino instead of the ox. He’s younger, fitter, lower wages, less injury prone?

{Ed001's Note - I haven't seen any of him but I would keep him, I don't think it should be an either/or thing with the Ox though. The decisions should be taken on their own merits.}

1.) 01 May 2021 08:48:26
Longthing despite a good start at Southampton Mino has been very much in and out of their first team the last few months. In their last 9 he’s started 3 and come off the bench in 1. Then he’s been unused in 5 of those games.
I’ll be honest I’ve only seen highlights of him when he has played and haven’t watched a full Saints game. I’d like to see him get another chance with us but for me it was strange how Klopp seemed to disregard him after the Palace game and then allowed him to leave on loan despite Jota still being injured at the time, our front 3 struggling for goals and Origi bringing nothing to the party. If Mino can’t get game time when we are at our worst then how will he if we get back to our best.

He did an interview a few weeks back and stated how the loan was a big surprise, even he didn't seem to be expecting it.

3.) 01 May 2021 11:55:37
Saints seem to have lost their way a bit, according to Ed01 so that may be having an effect on Mino. And I agree with Ed01, I would keep Mino too.

4.) 01 May 2021 12:32:29
ed001 I had big hopes for Minamino but I think his time at the club is done. We have far to many first team squad players that don't play enough games to keep. Ox has been fit for a good bit now ed and I don't know why he has not been given much game time. for me ed Minamino Origi Shaq and harry Wilson I would be happy for all 4 to go don't know what we would get for them but must be around £40m+ and a 1 good Striker to replace them all would good business don't know how many minutes they have played between them over the last 2/ 3 season but I don't think it will be a great deal. I hope we keep are front 3 and with Jota Elliot coming back from loan and a new striker that would be perfect for me.

{Ed001's Note - surely better 'business' would be to offload Origi, Shaq and Wilson and just keep Minamino?}

5.) 01 May 2021 12:53:47
I just don't think his going to stay ed don't think it has worked out for him ed and with all the trouble we have had this season I don't think Klopp would have loaned him out if he was in his long term plans with how things where at the end of January. At 26 ed he does not need loans needs a club to settle down for his prime years.

{Ed001's Note - he needs to settle in England, that is the problem.}

6.) 01 May 2021 13:19:52
Ed1 is Mini not to lightweight for the premiership? What as he done to prove he belongs at Liverpool?

{Ed001's Note - why bother asking a question when all you are going to do is shout anyone down who disagrees, even though you are, as usual, talking complete kack? It is pointless me answering you, waste of everyone's time as you won't take any notice unless it agrees with you blinkered viewpoint.}

7.) 01 May 2021 14:33:27
Spot on, Ed01.

8.) 01 May 2021 13:59:29
Better business would be to offload the four of them. Through either ability or injury record or workrate none of the four are up to it. Buy one player who'll actually have an impact nd bring elliott back. The likes of Gordon and Musialowski can also makes up for the likes of Origis impact. Taki might be a likeable humble person but if people are being honest he's being as bad or even worse than Keita when he has being on the pitch, and that includes his time at southampton.

9.) 01 May 2021 15:47:37
There's a good player in there somewhere, I hope he can get any help he needs to settle.

10.) 02 May 2021 00:38:44
There was one goal Mino scored where he took a touch in the box which essentially faked out the defender and froze the keeper which brought him a second tog et a shot away. There is definitely a player there but he needs to grow the rest of his game to match what Klopp needs. I thought he'd do well in the Bobby false-9 role.

With a lot of chat on the site about possible teams line ups and players in and outs what would we likely get for mane in this current market at the min eds1/ eds2?

{Ed002's Note - €86.5M.}

1.) 28 Apr 2021 21:45:02
Does that include package and shipping, Ed002?

2.) 28 Apr 2021 21:51:10
U fishing there Ed 🎣?

3.) 28 Apr 2021 22:20:55
Amazon Prime does next day delivery.

4.) 29 Apr 2021 06:53:45
Maybe we could do a free trial delivery with Keita?

5.) 29 Apr 2021 08:41:08
Get 10% off if you bid before the end of the season.

6.) 29 Apr 2021 13:26:41
The most crucial is that any delivery of Keita do not include any return privileges, whatsoever. I hope he does well wherever he goes. 👍🏼.

Evening eds1
Are you worried about the form we are in at the min carrying on into next season?
Thanks mate.

{Ed001's Note - not really, form is temporary.}

1.) 26 Apr 2021 18:36:56
For over 12 months now we have been terrible. I don’t know the number of loses in this time but we seem to have won less than half our games. We have a lot of players who form has more than dipped.

2.) 26 Apr 2021 19:07:16
Let's hope we don't see Fabinho at Cbk anymore.

3.) 26 Apr 2021 19:46:20
Fabinho for Liverpool in 2021

In defence: W0 D3 L4

In midfield: W4 D1 L1.

I’m not worried about our form as i think it’s obvious what the issues are and how we can resolve them.

What does worry me is whether Klopp is capable of being ruthless enough to address these issues. He seems to have grown very attached to this group of players and I worry that he’ll be too reluctant to enforce change as a result.

Some of the early signs indicate that he may have that ruthless streak, such as allowing Wijnaldum to leave and upgrading on Gomez with Konate.

On the flip side however, he continues to make very questionable team selection choices. Wijnaldum has been a disgrace for months and absolutely does not to wear a Liverpool shirt again, and is one of the main factors of our poor results. However, Klopp continues to pick him, often giving him the captains armband, and would rather sub Thiago off than Wijnaldum, despite the fact he clearly doesn’t care anymore. Mane is a total liability yet he continues to play him too, and while there have been noise about us buying players at centre back and midfield, there has been very little regarding forward players; i am genuinely worried we will go into next season with the same forward line. Klopp’s consistent recognition of our embarrassing finishing capabilities, while also doing nothing about it, also does not inspire confidence.

I trust the staff to get this summer right wholeheartedly (how could i not) but i’d be lying if i didn’t say i had cause for concern.

5.) 27 Apr 2021 09:02:15
AW, I am not bothered about our form into next season cos that is what the offseason and preseason is for. To reboot, recharge and refocus. As for Klopp being ruthless, he can only be as ruthless as the climate and financial conditions allow him to be. I don't like that Klopp keeps playing Gini BUT he feels he has to play him cos Naby has crapped out, Ox is off form, Jones is coming back from injury and Hendo is injured. That is the hand you are dealt.

You say Klopp is not doing anything about our finishing issues. What do you propose he do when ALL his forwards (at times Salah included) miss chances they should score? Who comes in? See, I find it funny that many on here state the obvious as if Klopp is blind to them then, offer not real solutions.

6.) 27 Apr 2021 12:51:21
Play Davies CB, Fab back in midfield, alongside Thiago in a 2, have Bobby just behind Mane with Salah and Jota on the wings,
Take Bobby away from the striking position and take the burden off scoring (or even shooting) away from him, or play Jones behind the front 3 now he is back, plus he can slip back into midfield 3, Milner can come on after an hour for Jones or Ox, we know Ox is class but needs game time, Davies can cover left back so needs a pre season then he should have a chance.
There is also the players there for a switch to back 3 with Robbo and Trent going as wing backs. May aswell try things now as we aren't getting top 4 and there's a big summer coming up, seems like we need to get rid of 5/ 6 players but need the same amount to come in which we don't have the money for unless we have big sales. Going to be the biggest summer for quite a while.

Eds666 do you just say bobby is still a lethal weapon. Am sorry but I don’t agree mate he couldn’t hit a barn door at the minute and his goal tally has dropped year after year. He need to go now and find younger.
