Appalling performance defensively, absolutely shocking. Haven’t felt this nervous about having a 1 goal lead for a very long time.

On a plus note we looked decent going forward and Salah is looking very very sharp.

YNWA.

Hopefully its just opening day rust but it was shocking to watch. Allison doesn't look himself since they've started back.


2.) 12 Sep 2020 19:40:03
It was like watching us pre Van Dyke. 3 points on the board but watching us this season will not be boring.


3.) 12 Sep 2020 19:46:35
Their third was telling: halfpoor throw, Mo switches off, Gini halfhearted effort, Fab is nowhere to be found, Van Dijk goes headless, Jones is zoned out and doesn't pick up the run. Lucky to have Mo, good to have the mentality we do.

Can only get bettet, but desperatly need to get better for the next game.


4.) 12 Sep 2020 19:47:24
Salah is back to his 2017 best, but so was our defence.


5.) 12 Sep 2020 20:34:33
Alisson couldn't have done anything about those goals. The defeding was horrendous.


6.) 12 Sep 2020 21:24:07
We wer rubbish let’s be honest! Ripped apart at the back one game in I know but f me it as dirt! Chelsea and Arsenal be a different animal hopefully we are too cus that was rubbish.


7.) 12 Sep 2020 21:51:51
looked like a pre season friendly!
sloppy passing, poor defending and trying passes that just were not on.

Early days and some real positives.

In fairness Leeds played their part and 3 points is 3 points!


8.) 12 Sep 2020 21:54:02
We were all over the place defensively for each of the 3 goals and those errors were punished but let's not go into panic mode. Over 90 mins we did not see Leeds cut us to pieces, they scored from every chance they had and aside from those 3 lapses we didn't allow Leeds to threaten our goal much. We caught them offside numerous times which I feel made many of us nervous and thinking that they were getting in behind regularly which they weren't.

It reminded me of the Norwich opening day last season where we won 4-1 but in fact that day Norwich actually threatened more than today. Leeds were clinical and punished our mistakes but to let the opposition only have 3 attempts on target over 90 mins isn't exactly a major issue. Considering Leeds had so much possession they could only get chances when we made errors that were out ofcharacter. VVD or Trent will not play as poor as that again and I expect they will learn from those lapses.

On a positive note I thought we could have scored 7 or 8 and we still looked dangerous despite midfield and full backs not even at their best. Let's not overreact and instead look forward to next fixture. 3 points in the bag, salah full of confidence, no injuries and we now can learn lessons and work on things that might benefit our defensive focus going forward.

YNWA.


9.) 12 Sep 2020 22:51:44
Simply well done Leeds Utd. Played liked a seasoned premier league team. They wanted a result, played us at our own game and out possessed us at home.

Lucky 3 points today, let's just hope it was an off day for us. Salah today was outstanding, movement, dribbling and of course the hat trick hero.


10.) 12 Sep 2020 23:10:56
As well as the defence Firmino has lost all confidence in front of goal. He had a shocker.


11.) 13 Sep 2020 00:48:14
Honestly, Leeds deserved something from the game for their efforts. They didn't sit back and defend and tried hard everytime we scored. But let's hope we learn well from this game to bring us to greater heights. 3 points in the bag, we go again!


12.) 13 Sep 2020 07:14:45
3pts but not very convincing at all. Good to see Mo back to his best.
Our back four were shocking and Wijnaldum seemed to just run round like a headless chicken all game!
I don’t understand why Jürgen didn’t replace him with Minamino who’s looked vastly improved, energetic, and one of our best players during pre season.
Bobby needs to be a lot more clinical and aggressive in front of goal. We need a lot more goals from him this season.
Hopefully we can put things right before the Chelsea game .


13.) 13 Sep 2020 09:34:51
The elephant in the room is how awful Keita was. Didn’t look up to it I’m afraid. If we’d have started with Fabinho, Henderson and Wijnaldum Leeds would not have scored three. As it was having to carry Keita our far too much work on Henderson and Wijnaldum.


14.) 13 Sep 2020 09:48:31
@6Times I think you're sort of right. This was a bad match to start with Keita and such a high line. This gave no cover to our defense and kept leaving them in two-on-one and three-on-one situations. IMHO it was a tactical error in our set-up. Keita's stats for the game were very poor but I'll put some of it down to first game jitters as well. Mo was (as everyone has said) the best player on the pitch but our frailties showed. let's hope JK manages to change those frailties to strengths as soon as possible.


15.) 13 Sep 2020 11:44:29
Going to be a long hard season this, the 12th man is missing and it shows. I expected Leeds to go all at it, their style of play is exactly that and they pressed, they will do OK this year and suprise a lot of people, I was hoping to see Brewster on loan there if he isn't going to be given a chance this year with the first team, would suit him and our style of play.


16.) 13 Sep 2020 14:10:55
Job Done, onto Chelski.


17.) 13 Sep 2020 15:26:53
So does Gini get a free ride again? More experienced than Keita in this league but apparently the "job" he does in midfield justifies his wages every week? Fab and Curtis came on and did far more in the time they had compared to Gini? Oh but he scores in big games my bad, guess this wasn't that big a game huh? Every games a big game when you're challenging like we are these days.


18.) 14 Sep 2020 00:16:23
It's obvious signings need to happen, Gomez for me is a back up CB, Matip is too injury prone to be relied on for a whole season, feels like an injury to Van Dijk (or Salah or mane) our season over, can't see City dropping points again like they did last season so a couple of draws like today very nearly was could be all it takes to lose out on the title. We need a starting CB and another forward. I don't understand how if FFP even exists anymore Chelsea can be dropping £250m on players and we only have £11m for a back up left back in the bank. Really concerning performances right back to before the lockdown when we lost to Watford .


19.) 14 Sep 2020 08:31:42
Salah was awesome, best I've seen him play for a while. Looked well up for it, stronger and less likely to be shoved off the ball easily; and his shooting and dribbling was on fire. Great game for a neutral but I guess we can now see why Klopp wants another central defender. VVD is becoming complacent and is making a lot of errors so needs cometition for places to keep him at the top of his game. If I was Matip, I'd be thinking what needs to happen for me to get a chance. Firmino should also feel slightly under pressure as he doesn't score enough and his link up play wasnt great. That wasnt a game for Keita as we know he leaves holes and doesn't track back. Play him in the games where we have the possession and need to break down teams not in high pressure games.


20.) 14 Sep 2020 09:24:46
Not well done Leeds, these were there for the taking, should have beat them at least 6-0. I'm pretty sure Jurgen will have them in today to work out the problems they made for themselves.


 

 

10 Sep 2020 12:04:13
Any news on Patson Daka and Jérémy Doku links Ed’s?

Moreton_Red

{Ed002's Note - Not involving Liverpool.}


1.) 10 Sep 2020 14:54:31
Read a report today that an offer of 25m Euro with Doku staying at Anderlecht for the upcoming season is in the pipeline. I'm sure it is lazy reporting due to the well covered financial running of the club, but it is a rumour site to report and disect rumours doing the rounds.


 

 

18 Aug 2020 11:00:35
Hi Ed,
Is it true there’s interest in Ojo from championship clubs?
I personally reckon that’s his level and can do well in that division with the right team.

Thank you.

Moreton_Red

{Ed002's Note - Sheyi Ojo (W) interst from Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield.


1.) 18 Aug 2020 11:33:30
Thank you ed.

{Ed002's Note - YUou are welcome.}


 

 

02 Aug 2020 11:21:03
LB - Lloyd Kelly or Jamal Lewis
CB - Llorente, Ben white or Kabak
Winger - Sarr, Saint Maximan

If we get those three positions signed we’ll have strengthened the team and brought in some good young players who can grow to be top quality.

Highly doubt any other positions will be sought after. Maybe a CM if another leaves eg Milner or Gini.

Moreton_Red

1.) 02 Aug 2020 12:31:55
I reckon if we signed Lloyd Kelly we wouldn’t go looking for another CB as he covers both positions. Out of Sarr or Maximin, there’s potential in both of them that could be unlocked so either of them would be decent options as they’re both big, very quick and skilful.


2.) 02 Aug 2020 18:34:14
I'd love us to sign Sarr, been a big admirer since he had his worldie game against us, I reckon between Klopp and his mate Mane, they'd turn him into a beast.

I wondered Eds whether Joe Hardy is being considered for the first team in competition games if Brewster were to go out on loan again?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what the plans are for Hardy.}


3.) 02 Aug 2020 19:04:31
Thanks for the reply Eds! I hope you have a good evening :)


4.) 02 Aug 2020 20:14:08
Where has the ASM rumour come from?


5.) 02 Aug 2020 22:19:30
RH18 i think Ed001 said that Glatzel would've played cup games if he hadn't been injured. Brewster should stay to play in the cups and Glatzel should go on loan to regain match fitness as Brewster has.


6.) 03 Aug 2020 07:14:11
I think if you look at the teams. Citeh need 2 centre bks. Utd need at least 5, Chelsea are not addressing their defence and gk problems. Liverpool have no weaknesses. There will no massive buys world footy is on its arse. Even utd are going 2nd best with Hudson-doi. I think Liverpool will buy but teams have no dough.


7.) 03 Aug 2020 12:13:57
Newcastle's win/ lose record with and without Saint-Maxamin is crazy.

If you averaged the points across the whole season when he hasn't played, they'd have finished 19th and got relegated.

If you averaged the points when he has been playing, they'd have finished 3rd and qualified for the Champions league.

For that reason, I think that Newcastle would want an absolute fortune for him. He's an excellent player but because he is so explosive, he might keep picking up injuries.


8.) 03 Aug 2020 15:17:47
Milner-won it all. Nap for Leeds without the club standing in his way. Who could blame him?


 

 

09 May 2020 12:15:14
Having spoken with a few of my mates who work within the clubs academy. It’s my understanding that Liverpool are looking to add 3 players in summer. Original targets will be targets again in the future but the virus has meant a change in these plans.

Milot Rashica (Werder Bremen) is a player Liverpool are seriously considering. Much cheaper alternative to Werner who Liverpool may look to strike a deal with in a similar manner to that of Naby Keita. Rashica can operate across the front 3 and would be a replacement for Shaqiri. I would expect this transfer to go through.

Soumare (Lille) a player who has been linked to Liverpool on the past in the papers. It appears although Klopp wants Liverpool to invest in this player with a bit more of an eye to the future. He will likely be a rotation player for the midfield 3 but has the potential to be a top top player. Anther transfer I expect to go through.

The final player Liverpool are said to be very interested in signing is Ben White (Brighton- on loan at Leeds) a really good up and coming young defender who can operate at centre half as well as left full back. A versatile homegrown Young player who will grow into a top player is another I expect to go through this summer.

Liverpool have alternatives to the above players but these I have been told are the top targets now. I understand that a deal for Werner would likely see him join next summer rather than this summer.

The Ed’s are welcome to email me regarding this information.

Thank you. Stay safe.

1.) 09 May 2020 18:08:32
I'd be very surprised if we do all that but cheers for the rumour.


2.) 10 May 2020 05:15:46
Personally think we will get Werner and Ben White done this summer with money being recouped by selling Shaq, Lovren, Kane, Ejaria, Wilson, Grujic and possibly Origi.
Jones, Elliot and Williams will have much bigger roles to play next season with so many outgoings.


3.) 10 May 2020 14:40:55
how do any of those outgoings equal more opportunities for Jones, Elliot and Williams?


4.) 10 May 2020 16:55:56
If the intention is to replace both Shaq and Origi with just Werner, it opens up a spot for Elliot.
No replacement for Lallana and Clyne means more opportunities for Jones and Williams.
I'd also be ok if we did not sign a replacement for Lovren either. He barely played anyways and Hoever and Van Den Berg need to be thrust into the deep end at some point.


5.) 10 May 2020 20:54:47
For me we need to improve the squad. We will be doing this by signing the players I have been told we are pushing for. Obviously the likes of Clyne, Lallana and a few of the youngsters will be moved on. Likely Lovren and Shaq as well. By signing Rashica, Soumare and Ben white it improves the squad as a whole while still providing opportunities for the younger players.

Alisson, Adrian, Kelleher
TAA, Neco Williams
VVD, Gomez, Matip, White (lb too), Van den berg
Robertson
Fabinho, Hendo, Gini, Ox (wing too), Keita, Jones, Milner (everywhere is Millie), Soumare
Salah, Mane, Firmino, Origi, Minamino, Rashica, Elliott

To me that squad is absolutely class. But for me and people within the club sinlgnibg need to be made to stay competitive across the board and to ensure players are brought through and developed for the future.

I am aware that I haven’t mentioned some of the other youngster eg Brewster and hoever. But that squad would be competitive in 4 competitions. The youngsters not mentioned will get some opportunities in the fa and league cup.


6.) 11 May 2020 19:42:21
That's the key; building up the quality of the squad, not just focusing on the starting XI. ManC can lose the likes of Mendy, De Bruyne or Sane, for example, for an entire season and not feel it. Take one of our stars out for the season and we would feel it for sure, because of the gulf in quality between the starting XI and the rest.

03 Sep 2020 14:37:45
If money wasn’t an issue this summer what players would you want the club to sign?

For me:

Upamecano - CB - I think this kids going to be one of the best central defenders in the world in a few years.

Saul - CM - would be such a great signing, would love him at Liverpool but it won’t happen.

Leon Bailey - LM - for me we need a pacey winger like bailey, he’d add quality depth to our attack and would allow Taki to play more centrally (I think he’s better through the middle) .

Moreton_Red

1.) 03 Sep 2020 14:51:56
Son
De bryne
Koulibaly.


2.) 03 Sep 2020 15:07:32
What a transfer window that'd be. I think I'd have gone for something similar too. Upamecano is well on his way to becoming a top, top CB, and since Klopp obviously wants a first team CB, I'd have gone for him instead of Diego Carlos who I wasn't too impressed with how Diego Carlos with from what I saw in the Europa League. Saul to replace Wijnaldum in midfield would be a fantastic upgrade. Werner as our new wide forward for Origi (if money was no issue, we'd probably have at the very least made a bid for him anyway) . And then a pacy and preferably creative winger to replace Shaqiri. As much as I like Shaq, he's just never fit. Can't really think of anyone off the top of my head, but he'd have to be fine with not being guaranteed a starting spot. Bailey looked good a couple of seasons ago and I'd have trusted Klopp to make a world beater of him. And a backup leftback like Tsimikas who we've actually signed.


3.) 03 Sep 2020 16:21:19
Neves
Son
Mbappe.


4.) 03 Sep 2020 16:38:07
Son alone, would be brilliant. I believe his is miles better than Werner.


5.) 03 Sep 2020 18:34:56
Phil Jones
Fabian Delph
and Adebayo Akinfenwa.


6.) 03 Sep 2020 20:15:09
Oh no, not Phil Jones. The memes alone are enuff to make us relegation fodder.


 

 

28 Aug 2020 12:57:28
There’s nothing wrong with other clubs being interested in our ‘star’ players. I see it as a compliment as it highlights how good they are. If any clubs are serious about singing these players then the club will either give them a price they will need to pay or tell them they’re not for sale.

Moreton_Red

1.) 28 Aug 2020 13:18:26
It’s funny really isn’t it as aren’t we after a player who has just won the league and champions league with his club who still want him to sign a contract. But we can’t accept that one of our players wants to look at other opportunities.


2.) 28 Aug 2020 13:45:50
If he does go, that’s just part of the game. The important thing is replacing him adequately. That’s the bit I’m not confident about as the names being bandied about aren’t anywhere near as good.


3.) 28 Aug 2020 14:27:18
Mane’s positives and negatives:-

+ positive never say die attitude - souness called him a Warrior
+ scores with both feet and his head and guarantees 15-20 goals per season
+ decent at the press and tracks back and defends very effectively
+ pace and strength - hardly ever shrugged off ball and excellent playing on break
+ can play on either wing so flexible if injuries to other players

- shooting could be better, misses some easy chances
- passing could be better and playing the right ball when we are breaking at pace.

Thoughts on others?


4.) 28 Aug 2020 14:42:34
And this exactly is why we should have signed Werner early in the window. And this why we should plan for backups as you don't know what happens. we always keep it late.

{Ed002's Note - There was no money to do taht.}


5.) 28 Aug 2020 15:05:49
Mane’s positives

+ Doesn't have a weaker foot. The power he generates with his left foot is enormous.

+ Could play either side, Can cut inside, and also hit the byline. Excellent in both

+Strong as a bull

+ Made the career of Andy Robertson by allowing him to overlap. The defensive work he does itself makes him irreplaceable.

+ Most importantly, Klopp wanted him at BVB nearly 10 years ago.
first major signing under Klopp era. Single-handedly got us Top 4, Sacrificed his natural side for Salah.

+. A world-class player who is hitting his absolute peak and unlike most he wouldn't flop at barca.


 

 

05 Aug 2020 12:12:32
This post could be controversial:

For me the squad needs 3/ 4 top top quality players added to it. The squad as a whole is ageing and the way we play is very demanding and I don’t believe we’ll be able to keep these standards up for longer than 1 more season (obviously sports scientists know more) . But we certainly need in the next two summer window at least another forward who can comfortably displace one of the front three, a midfielder (or two) who can come in and reignite the midfield (by reignite I mean provide more energy from the ageing legs we’ll have in another 12 months and add more naturally talented players) and another CB of real quality.

For me it’s essential to keep the club on top while we are there. Obviously I know financially we aren’t in the best place so it is difficult to achieve these sort of changes. But the squad needs new blood to continue to fight at the top year in year out under Klopps tenure and further.

Moreton_Red

1.) 05 Aug 2020 12:29:02
See your reasoning here but what if it’s taki that’s the person that goes to the next level and ends up slotting in the front.

Or Jones in another season or two is at a level to give what’s needed in midfield.

I’m sure the club is thinking ahead, obvs they had to re think a couple of things this summer but moving forward they’ll be able to better project there income.


2.) 05 Aug 2020 12:39:49
Players can play at the top of their game well into their 30’s now. It isn’t like what it was 10 years ago. I agree the squad needs adding to but we really aren’t at crisis point yet. The players we’re being strongly linked to are the right ones for us to be signing at this time and place in my opinion.


3.) 05 Aug 2020 12:46:47
The same song was sang before the start of the season; Liverpool can't push beyond the achievement of last season with the signings of van der Berg (academy), and Elliott (super young, definitely won't play much), and Adrian (free but just a GK cover) .

After a few cups and a league title, I believe Klopp even more. I'm sure he and his staffs have given lots and lots of thoughts about what is needed and what is not.


4.) 05 Aug 2020 12:55:47
The players mentioned Jordz could well be the players that step up and find themselves breaking into the starting 11 and I hope that happens. But we will have to wait and see.

AW I know we’re not their yet but the way we play I reckon we’ll have 1 more season of dominance before we need to really freshen things up.


5.) 05 Aug 2020 12:57:41
How many midfielders would you want us to have? We have loads available for the first team next season.

Centre back I think we already have 3 top class centre backs so I also disagree there.

I think you're being a bit unrealistic and you're underestimating what we already have.


6.) 05 Aug 2020 13:15:50
I take your point, Moreton. It's not unreasonable. I would disagree on the statement that our squad is aging though. I think as a club we've got so used to losing players in their late 20's just as they reach their peak, that we now associate 28/ 29 as aging. In reality that is just before the prime years of 30-33 in a players career (possibly with the exception of players reliant on pace who peak around 27-30).

I think we will see our whole starting 11 improve individually next season. Alisson is very young for a keeper. Trent is still a kid in relative terms. Virgil is just shy of the prime years for a centre back. Robbo, Gomez, Keita, Ox, Minamino, Origi and Fabinho are mid 20's. Hendo is just hitting his prime. Salah and Mane are quite clearly in their prime years and have at least 2 more years before they even think about slowing down. As for Bobby he is in the Totti and Begkamp bracket for me. His mind is so quick that he could play until his late 30's at the highest level.

I'm not hugely worried. Throw in Kelleher, Williams, Hoever, Berg, Jones, Elliott, Brewster etc. They're basically kids still. No need to panic and strip the team just yet buddy. Keep the faith.

Milner is the only player in our squad who i look at and think his legs might go soon.

Matip and Gini both seemingly could move on but if they stick about you'd say they're both still under 30 too. I'd actually go the complete opposite way to you and say our squad is overall very young. The senior members of the team are barely in their 30's yet.


7.) 05 Aug 2020 13:43:33
The team are at a good age in their developmental arc. Majority of the first team are mid-late 20s so are really hitting their peak. Then you have the likes of Taki and Keita, at 25, who are following still developing in the team but have bags of potential. They are heading towards their peak years.

add in Harvey, Jones, Neco, Rhian, Hoever as part of our new wave of youth.

I think we have a very sustainable squad as it currently stands and would advocate against signing anywhere near anything like 3 or 'top' signings. yes, players will go as they have already, but for me it is bringing in the right players and making minor tweaks to the squad. I don't see the value in bringing in top players to an already top heavy squad. I don't think that add quality depth that will actually make a difference. I can see how that would increase our overall rating on FIFA tho.


8.) 05 Aug 2020 13:49:25
Nothing controversial about that mate you just gave your opinion.


9.) 05 Aug 2020 14:24:11
Nothing functions in a vacuum. Everything happens as a consequence or combination of multiple events. So looking at retaining the title from just the perspective of looking at our squad strength and skill is probably insufficient. How we end up at the end of the season depends a lot on how the other teams do as well. We all know this.

Sometimes there is no logic to it. In a season where ManC did not have Laporte most of the time, they did far worse than in the season before where they didn't have De Bruyne for most of the time, but won the title. And yet De Bruyne is the more valuable player, no?

I don't think we have an aging squad. Especially now that Lallana and Lovren have moved on and will get replaced by younger players. The question should rather be about improving the squad if it's possible to do so in this financially restrictive environment. If we can then let's do it, if not then let's not. The obvious refrain is "why bother improving a team that is the best in the World? ". The obvious answer is that there is no guarantee on performance. We may play better or we may play worse. That's why there is management and coaching to oversee this aspect. We're on an upward trajectory since Klopp arrived, but nobody knows when that graph wil head downwards. It would be foolish not to guard against that.

I think ManC, ManU and Chelsea will improve their points tally over this year. Arsenal could well be a dark horse if they buy well and the players fully buy into Arteta's vision. Just like this year, I think our first 10 games of the season will tell us where we are vis-a-vis the others. And I think home field advantage (or lack of, due to empty seats in stadiums) will play a larger than usual, part in the season.


10.) 05 Aug 2020 16:38:59
OP, I disagree that we have an aging squad cos currently, only Milner and Hendo are in their 30's right now. That is a talking point that the media and rival fans like to use to convince themselves that LFC will fall away which has no basis in reality.

Also if you were following closely, we were in for Werner and almost got him signed to join the front 3 rotation and possibly replace one of them while Taki was also brought in to compensate here as well so the idea that we need to do new blood is again, preaching to the choir cos Klopp and his gang are already three steps ahead.

In addition, I believe the club don't have to do a damn thing cos nobody knows the future. Signing players don't mean you will have success. Ask City, Utd and Arsenal who outspent us last summer and see what happened to them. Neither does not signing players guarantees that you will fail, as he have evidence of that this season. I believe the club will do what is right based on what the club needs and we should trust them after all they have achieved hence, these types of discussions are a bit tedious IMO cos why discuss something that the club is already aware of and has been trying to accomplish as we speak?


11.) 05 Aug 2020 17:27:16
I'll start by saying I do get your point.

But, when you have a young team you make allowances for them and get excited thinking "they're not even in their prime yet! "
Then when we have a team in their prime, instead of enjoying it pl champs cwc champs supercup champs and for another few weeks cl champs. We panic that it won't last forever. I'm sorry but that is blatantly obvious. It's as obvious as the fact the sun is going to rise tomorrow. Of course we will have to bring in new players in the next few years. I'll give you a tip *hush hush* "teams tend to sign footballers during summer and a bit in January.

I'm sorry to be a condescending git, caught me at a bad time.

Obviously players are in and entering their primes. But the way we play certainly takes years off players due to the high intensity nature of Klopps style. Age as a number isn’t what I mean by ageing squad. I more refer to the idea that the intensity we play slows players down, still all quality players individually in their own right.

But keeping a squad fresh for me is important because who knows what the fitness levels, the legs will be like come the end of next season.

After next season we will have had for me 4 (hopefully if next season is successful) super seasons under Klopp and there’s no easy games. So I don’t expect the intake toy of our style to change.

I’ve read somewhere before that Klopps system can take a few seasons off a player due to the intensity.

So I only allude to the idea of keeping things fresh.

I just don’t want to see the club spending loads of money on players who need replacing (due to the intensity we play at) in a short period of time and struggling to bed them in. I’d rather it be a gradual process so integration can be done correctly so new players can slot into positions when players leave or need less game time (again due to the intensity we play at)

Our game is very intense, and our players are expected to give (hate this saying) 110%. But we have some very serious fitness people at liverpool. When was the last time a big star had an awful injury? The ox. And that wasn't due to too many games there was lallana but I think that was before this fitness guy came in. I suppose there's keita. But we do very well indeed with injuries and I don't think it's a coincidence.


14.) 05 Aug 2020 19:27:15
Moreton_Red, I fully agree with you in your latest comments. Our system has been grueling in terms of intensity BUT the players and staff are already aware of this hence, the Sports Science team are on their job managing their game time and training/ recovery methods.

Also remember, Klopp is a trained Sports Scientist as well so the guy is no mug. In addition to this, the players are already used to playing this way season in, season out and Klopp continues evolve the system and rotates a lot to keep bodies fresh.

And As Robbie posted, nothing lasts forever so of course we have to keep things going for as long as possible BUT the club is already on that so why the fear that things will end soon? Don't believe the stuff from the media saying that we have to win back to back titles to prove this or that. In what rule book is that written in, exactly? Our team is a great team. One of the best English football has ever seen and that is a fact. We will see what happens going forward BUT for right now, we are CHAMPIONS OF EVERYWHERE. Enjoy it, man.

Just want to take a moment to soak in the best time for any football fan. If your team is champions of your country, your continent and the world it doesn't get any better. Not until we discover alien life and beat them too. Plus we have an amazing manager, sound breathtaking football, are blooding in some youth players, have some of the best players around and the greatest fans.
Well done to the whole of LFC - keep making us proud.

I'm not sure we can be holders of the prem (this season) and the European Cup (last season) its technically true I suppose but. Anyone know what I mean? World champs, sure.


4.) 26 Jul 2020 20:56:34
Technically, until a new champion is crowned, the sitting champion is still champion.

There was some very deliberate and serious fist pumping going on here.

That post reads very odd. ;)

Air, pumping air. It was like scoring the winner in the cl final. That sort of fist pump. When Hendo lifted it. What a bang on captain he is. He's in the club now. One of the greats. Cl and pl winner. And also cwc which no other has done in our history. If he doesn't win pfa player of the year it'll be a crime.

Milner has just become even more legendary with his Utd ribbon comments at the ceremony. What a guy.


3.) 23 Jul 2020 11:14:31
For anyone wondering he referred to Man Utd as, and I quote: "F***ing W***ers".

Give it loads, Millie!

Milner does have a point though.

Can see this one happening. Fee of around 10 million. Decent business for a player that will likely be 4th choice.
Haven’t seen much of him so can’t say whether or not he’ll be a good signing.

I think if Shaqiri leaves then we do need to replace him. Obviously I would like to see Harvey get a chance but it’s important that we keep a good solid team to fight on multiple fronts.

I wouldn’t mind seeing Harvey go on loan for a season to gain experience and grow.

Thank you very much for the detailed response Ed.
Brandt and diego Carlos would be very good signings, runners crossed we can add a couple of players that can challenge the current first choice 11.

What about outgoings from the club Ed? Who are likely players to leave? Thank you.

Moreton_Red

{Ed002's Note - Outbound:
Shamal George (G) Gone
Loris Karius (G) Liverpool find him back on the doorstep and will need to find a solution - perhaps a reduced price and an early exit - CSKA and Hertha Berlin offer opportunities - does not wish to return to Turkey although there is interest from there. With Boeckx getting toward the end of his career and Roef's departure this summer already agreed Anderlecht would like him to challenge first choice Van Crombrugge. Wolves need cover, but Karius would not be first choice there - and regular playing time is what he will be after.}
Andy Lonergan (G) out of contract - could stay if Adrian leaves
Adrian (G) has a year to run on his contract but Real Betis would like Liverpool to release him for free this summer - but the club would prefer him to stay - and I expect him the stay
Devan Lovren (CB) perhaps in the summer he will move on
Nathaniel Phillips (CB) if Liverpool add Diego Carlos or another CB then time may have come for Phillips - Stuttgart would like to keep him on loan and may be open to buying him at the right price.
Nathaniel Clyne (RB) Gone.
Pedro Chirivella (DM/CM) Moved to Nantes.
Anderson Arroyo (LB) likely get another loan or the club need to cut him loose.
Adam Lewis (LB) expect a loan - Blackpool are keen.
Gini Wijnaldum (CM) was priced out of a move last summer and will be allowed to leave if a new contract is not agreed. Naby Keita has failed to step up to take his place so the club will look to hold on to Wijnaldum if they can - perhaps until either Keita sorts his act out or until Curtis Jones is ready to step up.
Marko Grujic (CM) Borussia Monchengladbach and Lazio have been talking to his agent and Liverpool will likely get offers from both clubs.
Ovie Ejaria (CM) expected to join Reading in the summer.
Adam Lallana (LM, AM, CM) time will come in the summer and he will have options home and abroad no doubt
Xherdan Shaqiri (AM/RW) wants more game time and if he leaves it opens the door for HG player to ease an issue the club has
Isaac Christie-Davies (AM) Gone
Harry Wilson (RW) Minamino likely ends his Liverpool career
Taiwo Awoniyi (F) no meaningful future - will sell in the summer if possible - loan to Mainz has not worked out well
Liam Millar (F) - a youngster who will suffer the same fate as many of the youngsters at Liverpool with opportunity not there
Rhian Brewster (S) loan to Swansea again perhaps or keep him and integrate him in to the team.}

Think we definitely need a pacey winger. That’s the priority for me. Shaqiri will likely leave as will one of Brewster or Origi. So we need a good quality winger to come in.

I wouldn’t mind singing a CM perhaps zakaria as he’s young and seems to be a player that would fit our system.

As for a CB I think we need one Matip for me should be VVD’s partner but is injury prone. And Gomez is still learning. I wouldn’t mind adding a decent CB that’s towards the end of their career just add the extra experience to the back line.

I don’t think anybody doubts the quality of the starting 11, because it is clearly one of the best in world football.
That being said the depth of quality is the things that need to be changed up. A winger for me is a must because currently we have nobody that fits the mould of Salah or mane and for me that is a must.

Apart from a winger I don’t see that need to massively change much although I wouldn’t be against another cm jointing to freshen it up and give something different.
Additionally a Cb might be required, Gomez and Matip have their injury worries throughout a season so unless one of the youngsters has stood out in pre season (I hope this has happened) I can see another Cb join.

A pacey winger and a cb will likely be the only singing we make. Thiago may join if Gini leaves but I’m more than happy if he stays.

For a winger to join though Shaqiri and/ or Origi will need to be sold.
I’d be happy with Taki, Brewster, Elliot and a new pacey winger as our other attacking options.

Moreno left the club at the end of last season. And while we do need a natural back up LB (instead of Milner or Gomez covering) . We have coped well this season without one although signing one would enable Robbo to have more rest.

The players mentioned Jordz could well be the players that step up and find themselves breaking into the starting 11 and I hope that happens. But we will have to wait and see.

AW I know we’re not their yet but the way we play I reckon we’ll have 1 more season of dominance before we need to really freshen things up.
