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?



25 Apr 2018 06:55:46
Hi eds. do you know when Lallana it due back. After the injury to the ox we need him ASAP. ?

{Ed001's Note - he is not expected back this season, unless we make the final in which case he could possibly make it. Not sure we 'need' him, good player as he is, we have not missed him at all this season and look better without him. He does not fit the way we play any more.}

1.) 25 Apr 2018 07:06:41
Ok thanks eds
Maybe time for him to move on then.

2.) 25 Apr 2018 07:46:10
I think we are all panicking over Midfield options ed mate. what's your thoughts? We have 3 fit options only now. Anyone from U21 or U23 that might be drafted in?

{Ed001's Note - maybe time to give Trent a run in his natural position?}

3.) 25 Apr 2018 08:14:07
Be a good chance against stoke at the weekend maybe and play Gomez at rb.

4.) 25 Apr 2018 08:19:41
Good shout Ed to be fair. Gomez back to RB. Hendo probably needs a rest? Can you think of any youngsters he might call on or should the 3 senior fit CMs be able to play all remaining games in your opinion?

{Ed001's Note - there is plenty of rest after next week's game. So they should be enough. If not maybe we could give Williams a chance, at 22 he needs to get a game or two just to see if he is capable of raising his game. You only know for sure when they get a go. Sometimes a kid can stand out a mile but then shrink mentally and fail miserably in the adult game. Other kids look average in youth football but they get a lucky break and suddenly grow as players to look like they belong there. It really shouldn't be an issue to cope for 4 games with the three we have and then they get two weeks to rest before the final (hopefully).}

5.) 25 Apr 2018 08:28:14
Just made a post on another thread saying the same ed, I think it is time to push him up to the midfield, let's see how he handles it, I think he'll do really well plus there's no better time then now.

6.) 25 Apr 2018 08:40:46
Cheers ed. You make so much sense. I would have far less stress and grey hairs if I could talk to you everytime I get a little flustered or concerned in life lol. Have a good day mate.

{Ed001's Note - I would say that is the good thing about getting older that you get less flustered but me ma is blooming ancient and she still gets overly stressed about every little thing.}

7.) 25 Apr 2018 08:44:43
In terms of having enough in the tank it shouldn't be a problem Ed001. But we are also one errant kick from not having enough fit midfielders for the biggest game of the decade.

{Ed001's Note - then you give a youngster a chance and you never know you might unearth a future star. If we aren't going to give them a chance when injuries strike because of panicky fans we may as well scrap the academy altogether.}

8.) 25 Apr 2018 09:09:43
I’d like to see Hendo, Gini and Woodburn against Stoke and maybe Milner coming on last 30mins to rest Hendo for a bit.

We need TAA’s delivery from out wide against Stoke IMO.

9.) 25 Apr 2018 10:42:31
Fully agree ed001, but I'm dissapointed that we have to give them a chance now. I questioned at the time, and continue to question, why they are not as a rule present in every match day squad so they could have gotten some chances in a few of the 16 (yes that's right, 16) games this season where we have won by 3 or more goals? It does get annoying finding ourselves repeatedly unprepared for this.

{Ed001's Note - I expect the Prem will follow Serie A's lead and increase the number of subs available soon enough. Serie A did it because they wanted to help the Italian national side by giving youngsters more chances in the first team. Whether it would actually do that or not is arguable but it would certainly mean managers would have no excuse for not giving kids a chance. Though it would probably just see Guardiola demand another half billion to spend to fill the bench with expensive first team players....}

10.) 25 Apr 2018 13:07:47
Ed001 do you know has Jordan Williams been training with the 1st team? I know he played a bunch of games for Rochdale, but not since October and he hasn't been playing for the U23s. I'd imagine it's more likely Gini will play as the deep mid and one or two of Woodburn/ Jones/ Kane could get a start. I know they're younger but age doesn't seem to be a factor for Klopp if you're good enough.

{Ed001's Note - a lot of the young uns train with the first team and it swaps about, to get them used to being with the group.}

11.) 25 Apr 2018 20:54:55
Jordan Williams is currently on loan at Rochdale so I imagine he wouldn’t be an option unless recall was an option.

{Ed002's Note - Of course not.}

12.) 26 Apr 2018 09:06:41
No Gordo, it was only a loan until January, but he suffered a knee injury at the end of October and hasn't kicked a football since.

13.) 26 Apr 2018 12:16:15
SGRED, I’d argue that Trent’s positioning would still find him out wide when playing RCM, just look at the positions Milner and the Ox take up throughout a game. Means he still gets to put in killer deliveries but also experience a game in midfield at the highest level. Also means if we play Gomez at RB that we can shift to a 3-4-3 when needed without having to bring an extra centre back on like we have been lately.
Cheers (3rd attempt at this post)

14.) 26 Apr 2018 12:17:51
Gordo - I believe his loan finished back in Jan. I just checked the Rochdale website and there is no mention of him (although they do have a Jordan Williams out on loan to Lincoln which threw me for a tick) . But he isn't injured AFAIK so Im guessing he needs to work harder to convince Critchley because he isn't getting into the U23 atm.

New image uploaded to the
Liverpool Player Sightings page entitled, One of these was given as a peno today and one wasn't!

1.) 25 Oct 2020 16:05:26
If man utd don't get a penalty, there is no way the opponent is going to get a penalty! BTW ole the dutch blonde kid his name is van de beek, surely you can find a place for him in that midfield, it can't be doing his confidence much good when Fred gets in instead of him, and also i am losing points each week as VDB is in my fantasy football team, apart from that minor detail, carry on ole, your doing a superb job! 1 point from 3 home games is the stuff of legends.



25 Oct 2020 07:55:44
Morning eds
You should change one of your icons at the top of the page to VAR decisions. It must get talked about more than anything! 😂.



23 Oct 2020 19:29:17
After the battering we got off AV few weeks back when hendo was injured and VVD didn’t exactly step up to hendo captain levels. It’s one area that does concern me going forward. I know we have Milner but I wouldn’t say he grabs the team by the scruf of the neck and drives them on like Jordan. Plus Milner is near the end of he’s time with us.
My question to eds1 is Is there anyone at the team who you think could step up to be a great captain when Jordan hangs up he’s cap. Also if you could sign anyone out if current players in the world to be our captain who would it be
Thanks eds.

{Ed001's Note - maybe Trent could grow into the captaincy, but I am not convinced we have any outstanding candidates at the club from what I have seen. But that goes for football in general, there are so few leaders around any more, they are all so robotic just following orders from their coaches that none really stand out as a potential captain for the team.}

1.) 23 Oct 2020 19:54:42
Robbo for skipper!

2.) 23 Oct 2020 20:11:18
Could Fabinho get there or is he too quiet?

{Ed001's Note - bit quiet for me.}

3.) 23 Oct 2020 20:12:18
Spot on, KloppBoom. He definitely has the temperament and mentality to lead.

4.) 23 Oct 2020 20:31:44
Don't see any candidate other than Robbo really.

5.) 23 Oct 2020 21:09:09
Very very harsh on Milner Longthing. Up until the last 2 years or so he was the main voice in the dressing room. When Klopp needed the extra input it mainly came from Milner. Henderson has grown and grown into a great captain but a lot was learnt from Milner.

6.) 23 Oct 2020 21:09:55
Mane in my professional opinion would be a good captain. Not only leads by example but is also vocal towards teammates.

7.) 23 Oct 2020 21:29:33
Mark08 it’s just an opinion mate. It doesn’t mean am right.
I think Jordan is a perfect captain so it’s a lot to live up to I just don’t think Milner has the same affect on the team as Jordan does.

8.) 23 Oct 2020 21:33:53
I agree KloppBoom, Robertson for me. I could see Trent growing into the role, but Robertson would be my choice.

9.) 23 Oct 2020 22:29:34
Robbo definitely the loudest after Hendo and you would imagine animated in the dressing room too. Honestly top class player too, had a mare in the city thumping but one of our best players since then.

10.) 23 Oct 2020 22:41:01
I'm with you guys on Robbo. Fearless and merciless, the perfect type of guy to lead you forward. Maybe a little too impulsive and gung-ho now, but I place that on his age and with another year or two, a more stable maturity would probably settle in. I absolutely love that he doesn't take sh*t from anybody (including the best player on the Planet) . If you look at his interviews, he's always smiling while talking; a young boy still in love with the game, and plays it that way. And historically, LFC has not done too badly with Scots as Captains (not that that means much anyway) .

11.) 23 Oct 2020 23:06:25
I think Tiago would be a good shout. He’s always talking from what I’ve seen upto now.

12.) 23 Oct 2020 23:10:29
Hit wrong button in relation to my Tiago shout he’s also a serial winner and a world class player. Has to be a good shout for captain in the short term.

13.) 23 Oct 2020 23:29:24
Robbo is the captain of Scotland . makes perfect sense at the moment.

14.) 24 Oct 2020 00:21:41
LT no probs, I think Milner is slightly under appreciated in the work he did helping the team and Hendo get to the stage they are now. Milner for me is still the main voice in the dressing room.,

15.) 24 Oct 2020 05:58:16
I thought I'd cracked it with my left field choice, only to find everyone is thinking the same thing.

Andy Robertson. Humble, got an edge, vocal, a driving player.

I think people are being a bit harsh on van djike. We didn't lose that match solely because of him. We weren't patient after going 1 down, then were even more erratic at 2. Then it snowballed as we were so open. We tried to do what we did to arsenal when they scored. 30 seconds later 1 1. Five minutes later 2 1.

16.) 24 Oct 2020 08:51:42
Robbo’ s a good shout but not sure his position is a good position for a Captain re communication to whole team and he’s head strong which is great for bombing up and down the left but sometimes captains need cool heads as well. Just throwing couple of things in to consider.,

17.) 24 Oct 2020 10:45:07
For me I’m quite surprised we seem desperate for a strong captain. From the outside looking in over the last 2 seasons it would look like we have a team full of leaders. Players that lead from the front and take responsibility for their own actions and performances. Hendo unfortunately has missed a few games through injury in that time and we’ve won them no problem. Yes we’ve lost a couple of games when he’s not played but I don’t think it’s because of his leadership but maybe more we’ve missed him as a footballer. I don’t think him being on the pitch causes other players to raise their performance by 10% because if that was the case what’s the point in Klopp being on the sideline. However i do think Robbo is a great shout. That lad plays with his head on his sleeve and leaves nothing on the pitch. Another 2 good shouts would be Mo and Mane. Both lead by example and to be honest I’d give it one of them as more of a political move. Captains of clubs are put on a pedestal and don’t normally tend to look for moves away which both have been rumoured to have.

18.) 24 Oct 2020 11:14:32
I disagree about lb being a poor position for a captain. Its not the best position perhaps, but it's possible. You bring up a good point about Robbo being hot-headed though warmachine. He is Scotland captain though, so it wouldn't be new to him.

19.) 24 Oct 2020 11:22:25
Mane is capt. of Senegal so he would be a good shout too BUT I would rather he lead from the front like he is doing now rather than have to do that and worry about others.

20.) 24 Oct 2020 15:09:46
Curtis Jones or Robertson, for me.

21.) 24 Oct 2020 15:09:58
Left back is a bad position for a captain.

Maldini: hold my beer!

22.) 24 Oct 2020 15:41:03
Mk has jones started a premier league game for us yet mate?

23.) 24 Oct 2020 15:41:26
Spot on, Nevada. That simply makes no sense to me. Oh n btw, Cafu (a RB) was capt. of Brazil for near a decade. Being a FB did not stop him nor Maldini from being legends of he game so why would it stop Robbo from performing at a high level?

24.) 25 Oct 2020 05:36:35
Is the role 'captain' that important these days? I mean having leaders as such definitely can help, but I'm unconvinced that the "captain's armband" is as significant as it once was, probably in part down to what you said Ed about players being more robotic. Not only does that thin the herd in terms of captains, but it arguably makes a captain a lot less influential anyway. I think Henderson is a good exception to this rule, but if you look at most clubs few of them have any sort of captain that compares to the influence of the ones of yesteryear (Roy Keane being one such example) .

{Ed001's Note - do you not think that is a reason why we excelled, because we had a genuine captain who led us? His mentality and desire rubbed off on the rest and we would never give up in part because of having a genuine leader.}

For me Robbos personality on the pitch is infectious. Although this leads him to dive in early at times and leaves him vulnerable It definitely marks him out as a player who’s on pitch actions will result in teammates following suit. Gerrard led by action rather than words and I believe Robbo falls into that category.

Sorry to ask again eds1
Just making sure I haven’t missed it. Have you done a Darby review?

{Ed001's Note - not yet mate, there has been so much about it, I have been finding difficulty with finding something to say that hasn't been done to death. I don't really just want to add to the general noise, but to find something that people haven't read about a million times already. That's not easy!}

1.) 22 Oct 2020 20:24:23
Ok mate no worries. 👍🏻.

{Ed001's Note - I will try and get it done for tomorrow for you.}

2.) 22 Oct 2020 21:08:32
Looking forward to it Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - cheers 09.}

3.) 22 Oct 2020 21:27:43
Love your match reviews ed001.

{Ed001's Note - thank you Redan. Now I feel bad for taking so long! I did have a good chat with Ed025 about the game just now to double check a few things, always good to get another perspective, so I know what I am going to say now. Just got to finish the news review quickly so I can get it done now!}

4.) 22 Oct 2020 23:32:05
Ed, I don't care if you write something that has already been said, you typically say it better anyway, so looking forward to your review.

{Ed001's Note - thank you stone. I really do appreciate that.}

5.) 23 Oct 2020 08:32:34
Ed1, I've read loads about that game but nobody offers an opinion like yours, it's unique and I think that's why your reviews are very well thought of.
Alot on the internet are just the same old BS and sometimes I think 'did they even watch the game? ' you know? Looking forward to it mate.

{Ed001's Note - thanks, I am glad people appreciate them. It makes a change from being laughed at when I criticised Pep in his Bayern days for tinkering and overthinking tactically. Now everyone is finally seeing that about Pep, it makes you realise that you do actually see it, rather than just being deluded as no one else saw it at the time!}

6.) 23 Oct 2020 12:00:17
Ed, I always thought the same about Pep and I'm sure many others did too. People were so enamored with his style of play instead of looking at his teams from a tactical standpoint. I still stand by my statement that he could have never had the level of success at Liverpool as Klopp with the same circumstances.

{Ed001's Note - I would not have wanted him to be in charge of us. He can only manage when he has a team much better than the rest of the league he is in. City have gone backwards under him and it is little wonder he is considering moving on at the end of the season. If he stays any longer people will realise he was just lucky to inherit a great set of players at Barca, and begin to notice how much worse the team was when he left. Then they will notice the same pattern at Bayern. And now again at City.}

7.) 23 Oct 2020 12:04:53
the review is up by the way now: Merseyside Derby review. Sorry forgot to link it in my previous reply.}

8.) 23 Oct 2020 12:39:41
Same opinion i have had of Pep since day one, took over Rijkaards Barcelona where he started that team off, he thinks he is clever but the one off games should of suited City in the CL restart but he made terrible choices and cost City, the teams he has played in the cup runs with City have been shocking, he is certainly no Jurgen or Ferguson.

9.) 23 Oct 2020 14:00:07
Lol Ed, I bet you even questioned yourself at times mate? Hahaha you know your football, the majority of us on here don't know anywhere near what you know so your opinion is a bloody valid one in my eyes. Keep doing what you're doing, please because we don't get it anywhere else on the internet. Looking forward to reading the review, going to leave it til later when I have more time, cheers mate.

{Ed001's Note - I always question myself mate, it is the only way to be certain you are right is to ask questions of yourself about it. The moment you stop questioning yourself is the time to worry as you will never know it all. A martial arts instructor of mine once said you should never consider yourself an expert, always a student because there is always more to learn.

I hope you enjoy it mate.}

10.) 24 Oct 2020 10:45:45
He sounds like a very wise man ed1, I love that kind of attitude. As the old saying goes 'you learn something new everyday' and its true isn't it mate. Keep with that mindset and you can't fail, there's no room in life for failure. Too many people quit when they fail but really should thrive.

BTW, a great review, I read it late on last night, spot on as always, thank you mate and have good day.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate I really appreciate that. Imo opinion there is no such thing as failure really, you just learn a new way not to do something.}

11.) 24 Oct 2020 14:00:57
I completely agree Ed. I wish more people thought the same way mate. Too many people take failing far too hard they don't see a way out and in some cases that can end up as a disaster. You have probably seen it before as have I and I find it quite sad. It comes down to self belief and knowing you can do more, do better no matter what obstacle is in your way you know? It's nothing about being strong or weak, it's about having that mindset to move forward not backwards.

I don't know mate I could go on about this all day long but I'm going far too off subject so I'll leave you be lol. Take care mate.

{Ed001's Note - you are right mate, but you are right, not really the right place for this I guess. Have a great weekend mate.}

12.) 24 Oct 2020 15:26:53
Thank you Ed, fingers crossed for the three points tonight, then It'll be a better weekend :) .

Hopefully he will come back with another years experience and maybe fill in the space left from Milner.

Morning eds
Are there any other prem clubs doing the same as Man U and changing the Grounds to get fans back in. Also is it just home fans or home and away fans that Man U what back in?

{Ed001's Note - I believe it was only planned to be home fans at games with the agreed-upon October re-openings, that have now been scrapped. I would assume every club was in the middle of alterations to allow social distancing or they would not have been able to have any fans in.}

I enjoyed the race. I do think Lewis now plays with bottas. I wasn’t sure before but now am convinced! Only thing from yesterday the DRS was way to powerful. It should have been shorter.

If it’s two yellows he would have shown two yellows as it’s one match ban it was a red card he shown so 3 match ban there is no confusion on that front.
