Bruno to Liverpool WILL happen. Thought the deal was closer than it was so apologies for the post the other day saying it was close, been a slight delay but all should go ahead in the coming days.

1.) 01 Jul 2019 17:20:15
I will post a tribute to you if you get it right, stating you are the best poster of all time, but if it doesnt you must post an apology then delete your account - deal?

2.) 01 Jul 2019 17:37:48
Why does he have to delete? It's a rumours site isn't it?

3.) 01 Jul 2019 18:25:13
You are just copying Twitter BS and selling it as your own.
Twitter user @JurgenHead has posted a long story stating the same. It's most likely BS but a very fun read for those who like old fashioned transfer rumours :)

4.) 01 Jul 2019 18:31:09
Its a light hearted jokey bet, chill. just seeing whether he thinks it will happen or is just chatting sh.

5.) 01 Jul 2019 19:25:23
Samuel A isn't posting a rumour, more a statement of fact.

6.) 01 Jul 2019 19:49:39
Thanks for contributing to the site, Samuel A.
Keep posting mate.

7.) 01 Jul 2019 22:21:09
Bruno? as in fernandes.

8.) 01 Jul 2019 22:55:49

9.) 01 Jul 2019 22:59:40
More likely to sign Frank Bruno.

10.) 01 Jul 2019 23:26:19

11.) 02 Jul 2019 03:33:01
Cheyrou oh god the memories!

its Fernandez anyway OP is talking about xD.

12.) 02 Jul 2019 07:36:59
Bruno Cheyrou. the next Zidane! ????????.

13.) 02 Jul 2019 07:48:23
Now I understand what ed002 means. You share something you hear and the cretins like lil fighter who roll from the woodwork and throw unnecessary abuse, cool I won't bother you again and will see myself out. Good bye.

14.) 02 Jul 2019 08:21:15
that @JurgenHead thread is actually quite compelling.

15.) 02 Jul 2019 10:24:59
It's ok Samuel I enjoyed the read.

16.) 02 Jul 2019 15:04:23
Bruno to Liverpool WILL NOT happen.

17.) 02 Jul 2019 16:34:11
Might be the same guy as the one on twitter. Talking of which I just read it and I never go on Twitter. Its definitely worth a read. Its either true or an exceptionally well thought up lie!

18.) 02 Jul 2019 16:37:55
As in Frank.

19.) 02 Jul 2019 16:38:19
lil_fighter, how do you know Samuel isn't Jurgenhead off twitter himself?

20.) 02 Jul 2019 22:24:51
Bruno Mars.

21.) 03 Jul 2019 06:54:14
Didn't mean to insult you Samuel ;) keep contributing to the site!

I always enjoy reading transfer rumours (even odd ones) but I personally feel there is a difference between sharing a rumour and pretending to be someone IDK.



19 Jun 2019 11:32:59
Good morning or afternoon which ever part of the world you reside from.

Liverpool are close to completing a deal
for Bruno Fernandes of Sporting Lisbon.

The deal isn't directly linked with Rafael Camacho going the other way, two totally separate deals.

Have a good day

S x.

1.) 19 Jun 2019 11:36:19
Any news on this eds?

2.) 19 Jun 2019 12:43:41
No chance!

3.) 19 Jun 2019 13:32:42
We've got

All of whom when fully fit are starters and all vying for 3 places.
We need to lose at least one as it is. At the moment it's Lallana
who has unfortunately fallen down the pecking order.
I seriously hope this rumour is bs. We do not need another midfielder.

4.) 19 Jun 2019 14:03:46
People keep coming out with all these midfielders we have but if we want to go to the next level we need to be ruthless.

We have 3 attacking midfielders. Keita, Lallana and Ox. The only one who has proven he is good enough is Ox, and none of them have proven they can be relied on 30 games a season. If there is a chance to sign a player with 32 goals and 18 assists from midfield, you don't turn them down to remain loyal to players who had little to no impact over the last 12 month's.

Milner, Henderson, Gini and Fabinho are our only midfielders who earned their salaries last season and they're all better as box to box / holding midfielders.

5.) 19 Jun 2019 14:20:11
Odd thing Liverpool would be spending valuable time scouting a player, they don't have the need for then.

{Ed001's Note - why would that be odd? Teams have to scout players because you never know when you might need one. Illness or injury can end a player's career at any moment, for example.}

6.) 19 Jun 2019 14:34:17
We need another attacking midfielder in my opinion, we have enough forwards but no AM.

This is how i see your list above
Henderson - Box 2 box / DM
Wijnaldum - Box 2 box
Fabinho - DM
MIlner - Box 2 Box / AM (But ageing won't be a major starter)
Keita - Box 2 box
Oxlade-Chamberlain - AM (Coming back from a heavy layoff)
Lallana - Should be sold, as can't be relied upon.

From how i seen it we only have 2 AM one of which is ageing and will possibly only have 1 more season and Ox who has just come back from a long injury and could easily get a few niggles keeping him out for short periods. That means we are back to just Box 2 box midfielders and DM with little creativity coming from the midfield. I know a lot of our chances come from our fullbacks, but we need to have more options in attacking, someone to play balls through the defence. Although i do believe this is one of Keita's strong points in his game, so hopefully he steps up there.

7.) 19 Jun 2019 14:54:18
Isn't Henderson managing an injury aswell?

8.) 19 Jun 2019 14:57:57
Are we doing it ed? Or is it going to be another fekir. oh no i just jinxed us😣😣😣.

{Ed002's Note - I am not entirely sure I understand the question. All of Liverpool’s efforts (as far as the fans are concerned) appear to be working on Pepe to replace Salah, Mbappe to replace Pepe and Dembele to replace Mbappe (or something like that.}

9.) 19 Jun 2019 15:16:09
I said it before and i will say it again, if we do not REFRESH our squad this window, we will end up like Spurs.
Lallana and to some extent Ox cannot be relied on. Lallana is past his best and Ox just coming back from an injury where he gets his speed from.
So tell me why we can't scout and bid for Fernandes and the like?

10.) 19 Jun 2019 15:24:22
I think we are all just guessing and trying to piece together our transfer strategy for this summer mate to be fair. I am no different however I do realise we won’t be signing Pépé, Fernandez and the likes of.

{Ed002's Note -We will see.}

11.) 19 Jun 2019 16:01:17
I must admit, I did giggle when I saw the Metro linking us to Mbappe.

12.) 19 Jun 2019 16:01:50
So we have the highest points total in the history of the club AND win a champs league at the same time and everyone wants to suddenly change the first 11?

Whether flashy or not that first 11 IS capable of winning a title and probably will. But if start changing players we will also affects tactics and team chemistry.

Personally I hope we don't sign anyone for the first 11. We need viable back ups not starting 11.

13.) 19 Jun 2019 16:57:04
Nevada we don’t need to replace the starting 11 but we do need cover for both full backs as they can’t play 50+ Games each. Same with the front 3 we need cover and possibly a creative midfielder.

14.) 19 Jun 2019 17:23:07
Personally hoping we sign Fernandes. I think he would be a great complement to a great squad. Lallana probably needs to move for game time but I still believe in him when fit. Keita I was expecting a lot of but a year in England not comfortable with the language would be tough for many players. Cost so much go can't just give up on him, and hopefully he will prosper next season. Fekir is a good option in lieu of Fernandes and Ox is always there.

15.) 19 Jun 2019 17:24:56
That's why I said I hope we just sign viable subs Virgil. But anyone thinking fernandes, Pepe etc are coming to be subs is a bit mistaken.

16.) 19 Jun 2019 18:07:18
There is a good argument made by MSMP on discussion page regarding injury history of our few players.
It's worth a look!

{Ed001's Note - can you stick with MSMP or this account and stop swapping between them. They have the same IP and tried to post the same injury history post, so it is clearly you swapping between accounts. The T&Cs are clear - one account only, so pick one and the other will be deleted.}

17.) 19 Jun 2019 18:31:55

18.) 19 Jun 2019 18:49:17
Haha, busted TheRedKop. There's no need to have conversations with yourself. There's plenty of people on here.

Are you OK mate? Do you need help?

19.) 19 Jun 2019 19:00:54
The red kop I suggest you make a new account called TRKMSMP and combine your two personalities 😂.

20.) 19 Jun 2019 19:58:42
Oh dear Redkop. Have you listened to 'Personality crisis' by the New York dolls.

21.) 20 Jun 2019 01:46:30
So i had to go and check out what msmp said on the discussion page. Bit further down and msmp and TRK is havin a conversation with themselves. himself. ha ha 🤪.

22.) 20 Jun 2019 02:38:32
Apart from goalkeeper. I don’t believe in “back ups”.

A top team should have a strong squad which are all capable of pushing for a 1st team place. Not 11 players and some back ups .

23.) 20 Jun 2019 02:44:26
Love it when someone gets owned on here. So funny. Firminosteeth’s teeth one was the highlight of last summers transfer window for me. Even more so than signing Allison and that’s saying something.



30 Nov 2018 09:10:04
Adidas to be Liverpool's next kit sponsor.

{Ed001's Note - sponsor? Do you mean manufacturer?}

1.) 30 Nov 2018 09:23:10
Corrected, thank you Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - that's ok, just wanted to make it clear for everyone reading.}

2.) 30 Nov 2018 10:48:43
oooh i like adidas. better than nike.

3.) 30 Nov 2018 10:54:04
Actually it is Nike who will make the kits, just saying.

4.) 30 Nov 2018 11:22:06
Damn Nike has been decreasing their quality last few years.

5.) 30 Nov 2018 13:29:55
I don't care who manufactures the kit as long as the manufacturer gives cool money to the club. please share as soon as u know something about it ed01.

{Ed001's Note - it is not my area mate, the playing staff and coaches never take much notice of these kind of things, so only tend to find out when they have to have pics taken in it.}

6.) 30 Nov 2018 17:40:27
When is this meant to be happening anyone know?

7.) 03 Dec 2018 09:07:26
nike has been really subpar lately in the kits they produced.



22 Nov 2018 15:11:49
Lallana is to re-join Bournemouth. Loan with an obligation to buy.

Between now and the summer I wanted to know where realistically LFC need to strengthen? Call it MOTD fever or whatever you like but i feel we could develop Neco Williams into a capable back-up for Trent. On the left side of defence, i'm not 100% convinced Larouchi will take it up to that next level and will just fall short of the first team (hope i'm wrong) . Shaqiri and Lovren may leave at some point so here would be my pick of IN's for LFC.

Centre Half/ Left Back - Jordan Torunarigha

Attacking Midfield - Viktor Tsyhankov

Forward - Victor Osmihen

Not sure if these are achievable or not just my picks.

1.) 08 Jan 2020 10:01:17
I agree about Williams and larouci. The former has a great shout but may be too good to play second fiddle. And the latter may fall short sadly.

I feel we are in a position to sign mbappe. It seemed a bit ridiculous a year ago, but now not so much. We had a big spend a couple of years ago and have since spent very little. Maybe we're saving for another big signing. Thing is, salah is great and so is every player we have.

The only outs I see are lallana and sadly origi. Ads, coz he's getting on and contract ending. Origi coz he's good enough to start for 95% of the teams out there but isn't getting that many minutes. I really hope divock stays. He's a legend for his cl goals and goals against Everton. I think he'll end up staying for another couple of seasons. We need more than 3 forwards and Brewster and origi are the only other proper strikers on the books. Shaq is a midfielder.
We do have minamino now. Does that say anything about origi's future? He played cf on his debut? Probably more a lallana/ shaqiri repkacement.

2.) 08 Jan 2020 10:02:20
Would prefer Ben White over Torunarigha. Much more first team experience and is home grown. Don’t think he’d move to sit on the bench at this time in his career though.

Tsyhankov is a right winger where we have Salah, Minamino, Shaqiri, Mané (cover) and at a push Ox available to play. Granted, Shaqiri may leave but won’t need replacing. Wilson will return and a decision needs to be made on him.

Osimhen, we are following and looks a decent player. That may depend on whether Origi wants more game time. Again, Osimhen won’t want to come and sit on the bench. If Origi is happy to carry on, it may be better to carry on as we are. Brewster will return in the summer and a decision needs to be made on him.

In terms of what I think we need. a centre back to replace Lovren if he goes and White I like the look of but don’t see him craving the move. He may, however get opportunities if Matip and Gomez continue to struggle with injuries. May be how Klopp sells it to him, along with cup opportunities.
A midfielder/ cover for the left wing if Lallana leaves and Grujic receives no work permit. Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Milner, Ox, Keita, Jones will all be at the club next year though and opportunities again will be limited. I do feel we need cover for Mané to prevent a drop off in quality. Maybe the interest in Osimhen is to aid this, with switching the front three around a bit.
If Grujic is in the first team next year then maybe Jones will go on loan.

3.) 08 Jan 2020 10:58:02
Mbappe is not joining us. Sorry.

4.) 08 Jan 2020 12:20:43
How are those drugs working Robbie? I think you need to up the dose mate. Mbappe indeed 🙄.

5.) 08 Jan 2020 12:50:14
Robbiesline is 100% correct about Mbappe. Bloke down the pub told me its nailed on. And my unicorn agreed with him.

6.) 08 Jan 2020 13:21:34
Tricky one for Origi. He’s featured (been on pitch) for 20+ games this season already. Clearly valued by Liverpool but will never be ahead of the no contest front three.

7.) 08 Jan 2020 18:35:18
How is signing mbappe that crazy when we paid 75mil for a cb? The lad is due a move. Earned one. The Premier league is the most famous and watched worldwide. And the prestige of our top clubs (us being one or two depending how you look at it) is going to increase. It is hard to see from the inside. Listen, I know it's highly unlikely but how many clubs are able to get him? Madrid, barca, City, bayern maybe and us. We haven't been able to compete wages wise but our new sponsorship deal has made us more competitive there.

I'm not saying it's happening, I didn't even say I think it might. Only that it isn't as crazy as it sounded 6 months ago. We are world champs now. With more money and we've barely spent 8 mil in 2 windows. We are due a spend. Of course, like I said, it would depend on salah leaving and I'm not even sure I prefer mbappe to salah. What is mbappe biggest season in terms of goals? Is it better than 44? I genuinely don't know. And he plays in a two Bob league. Salah did his in the prem.
Klopp has shown he can not only find hidden gems (robbo, Matip etc) but is willing to pay for the world's best. Vvd and Alison.

8.) 08 Jan 2020 19:33:53
Mbappe transfer would be massive, not forgetting his £300,000 a week wages, maybe a lot more. I couldn't even imagine his transfer fee but it could make VVD's look like peanuts.

9.) 09 Jan 2020 07:21:46
Robbie, as IR sais it is not the transfer fee that is impossible.
It is the wages that makes it 0% chance of happening.

If Mbappe signs ill give you both my wife and house and leave with the kids to live on the streets.

10.) 09 Jan 2020 12:39:40
Front three is outstanding and Minamino and a Origi top players in the backup/ challengers mould. No need to change anything unless Salah or Mane leave (god forbid)

Midfield is strong with Fabinho, Hendo, Gini (assuming a new contract), Keita, Milner, however feels likely Lallana or Shaqiri leave (or both) . In my mind, let Jones step up if one leaves, but if we lose two (or Milner as well) then I think there’s scope to bring another player in. I’d be very happy to see Grujic return to be honest, but clearly there’s come for a bigger signing.

In defence I think we’re a little short of experienced cover at FB if Milner leaves. I believe we should let Neco and Larouci step up as like them both, but if Milner leaves then a strong FB able to play both sides would be my top pick. CB perhaps if Lovren leaves but otherwise OK.

GK I’m happy.

Not a lot to be done unless a top player leaves to be honest.

11.) 09 Jan 2020 13:41:39
Edeholt. I'm holding you to that mate. Lols. So what happens? Who, bar psg and maybe city can afford 300.000 a week? Does it mean he is city bound.

Can I ask eds and reds, if you had to bet on mbappe future, where do you all predict him playing in, say, 3 years. Probably Madrid would be my guess. Can they afford those sort of wages?



15 Nov 2019 08:29:36
Those beer guzzling pot bellied knuckle heads as Ed002 would poetically put it should all hang their heads in shame. Clearly, to boo their own player the majority of them in attendance last night must have been Arsenal fans. If i were Joe i'd tell England and Southgate where to stick it, he didn't need to come on and it was all about Southgate and making a point. He should be ashamed of himself, the absolute clown. Thank god im Welsh.

1.) 15 Nov 2019 09:10:02
Joke england fans exactly why I couldn’t give a dam about them.

2.) 15 Nov 2019 10:01:02
On a positive note. In the words of Alan Partridge, the ox has a foot like a fraction engine.

3.) 15 Nov 2019 13:52:48
And thank god for the springboks, saved the world.

4.) 15 Nov 2019 14:47:35
And I'm glad I'm Scottish we don't have all those worries of qualifying for tournaments just who do we support that actually is there ha ha.



04 Oct 2019 11:48:58
Really miss the written up match reviews from Ed001.

That used to be my little ritual with a cup of coffee. Any chance of them coming back? I know you do it on podcast but nothing beats a good read.

Thanks and i hope you are well.


{Ed001's Note - I simply do not have time, they take hours. I don't have time to do everything and they were one of the hardest articles of all to write as I had to come up with something different to say about each player in every match. It was becoming more and more time-consuming as a lot of the time players do the same things wrong and the same things right, as that is the way they play. So trying to find something else to pick out about their performance is hard work.}

1.) 04 Oct 2019 12:24:51
Im sorry ed but me too😣.

{Ed001's Note - I might do the odd one in future then, but it will have to be based on one watch of a match rather than 2 like usual.}

2.) 04 Oct 2019 13:04:03
They were a good read ed but having to watch the game twice for each one is enough time on its own!

Would a monthly one work, time permitting, where you could round up performances based on several games and only one watch?

{Ed001's Note - to be honest, that would probably be even worse with my memory, as I can barely remember what day we played on, let alone much else! I will just do them when I can from now on but based on one watch through.}

3.) 04 Oct 2019 13:42:16
I agree they were crucial to read after a game in work - what's happened to the poster who used to do his own every now and again?

4.) 04 Oct 2019 13:36:55
Sorry to say that I'm in the same boat here, Ed. While I totally understand your reasoning, I miss reading them on my Monday/ Tuesday commute so one every while would be great. Thanks to you, and indeed all of the Eds, for the hard work you put into this site!

{Ed001's Note - I never realised so many people read them to be honest.}

5.) 04 Oct 2019 13:47:14
Yeah u always looked forward to reading them as well, perhaps if Ed is too busy someone else could try doing one? Haven't heard from MK Scouser in a while, always enjoyed the articles he wrote for the site!

{Ed001's Note - there's a good idea! I nominate Bazza, he would love to write them ;-)

6.) 04 Oct 2019 13:54:11
Was always a great read but either way is fine for me, like you say Ed and I can imagine it being very time consuming, whichever is easier for you mate.

7.) 04 Oct 2019 15:26:14
Hahahaha sorry Ed01. You know that I'm the same here. Just hope you can at least do some on those special games, like derby and such. Or semis, or finals.

Keep up the good work and effort to all you Eds.

{Ed001's Note - ok mate, I will make sure to at least do the bigger games and as many of the rest as I can.}

8.) 04 Oct 2019 15:33:59
Ed if you are putting it in the podcast can you just provide a link or tell the time at which it comes? it will be quick for us so.

{Ed001's Note - we had already decided to make changes as we have not been able to cut down the length of the pods to the 1 hour we were aiming to do. From now on the See You Next Tuesday podcast will just be match reviews and previews. Nothing else in them. Then we will do a separate podcast to deal with news etc. Not sure what we will call that or what day we will release it, but that is the plan. So you will be able to quickly find match reviews as they will be at the beginning of the SYNT podcast from now on.}

9.) 04 Oct 2019 15:41:41
No worries ed, if we are nominating posters to do the odd review i would love to see walter do one, i'd be interested to see if he could find any positives from our performances.

{Ed001's Note - I would love to read a Neggie written review!}

10.) 04 Oct 2019 16:16:36
Hi ed01, sorry if this is a dumb question, but I notice the last podcast I listened to was about 2 1/ 2 hours, how does that compare to writing up the match report? I guess looking at it from a reader's perspective, whilst I enjoy the podcast, that is a lot for a listener to get through compared to the written report. anyway, either way thanks for your work!

{Ed001's Note - the podcast covers a lot more and is a lot quicker to record. Remember I was watching the game a second time for starters, which is another hour and a half on its own. But writing it and coming up with different things to say was taking a full day in effect.}

11.) 04 Oct 2019 17:15:35
Me too Ed. I can't really listen to the podcasts because I used to sneak a read at work 👀.

{Ed001's Note - looks like I have no choice if even bread is against me, I won't be able to eat a slice of toast without feeling guilty otherwise!}

12.) 04 Oct 2019 17:46:40
I'm with every one else too mate, the match reviews were great and I fond them as a terrible loss to the site now that they have gone. Not that we're trying to make you feel guilty or anything, if nothing else it's a huge compliment.

{Ed001's Note - I will take it as a compliment while feeling guilty about not having done them.}

13.) 04 Oct 2019 19:28:27
I’m in the same boat as everyone it seems, I miss the match reviews but at the same time this is a community of sorts. We all watch the games and I think it’d be good for posters to do match reviews. I’ve been thinking of writing a few articles and I’m sure I’m not the only one but I don’t think I’m as tactically aware and perceptive as Ed1 so I don’t think I’m the guy for match reviews unfortunately, but I’m sure there’s someone out there who’s ready to take the leap and give it a go. Let’s all step up and stop expecting the Ed’s to do everything for us.

{Ed001's Note - you might see something totally different from me, so your match reports could be good in a different way. But it would be good if you wanted to add other articles instead, the more the merrier with articles.}

14.) 04 Oct 2019 19:47:50
Tris please say it's another Bazza you were nominating as I am a total gimp when it comes to the written word. By that I mean trying to put in words what I'm trying to say if you know what I mean I think🤔.

{Ed001's Note - that is why you would be perfect....}

15.) 04 Oct 2019 20:01:39
You could just pack in sleeping! That would give you an extra 8 hours a day. Problem solved 😉.

16.) 04 Oct 2019 20:03:23
I miss reading them too Ed. Always an insightful read. Totally understand if not as I can see how much time they must take as they are always so detailed.

{Ed001's Note - thanks mate. I will have to find the time to get as many done as possible.}

17.) 04 Oct 2019 21:27:53
Personally Ed01, I love the podcasts cos as you say, it covers a lot more that just the game itself. in fact, the last one you guys did (available on Youtube), you guys talked about the racism row between B. Silva, B, Mendy and the comments made by John Barnes to that effect which was very interesting. Keep 'em coming, pls.

Well just to be negative I say don't do them edd 1. Only joking I miss them. Only managed to catch a few of the podcasts but aim to listen to them.

19.) 04 Oct 2019 21:32:22
Funnily enough I did one on the champions League final. It never got posted. Was only about 300 words but I did rant on about Salah the player not the poster was a SYNT maybe it was too negative.

20.) 04 Oct 2019 21:55:20
Can't imagine why someone would think a dig at a player would be too negative right after winning the Champions League, Walter.

21.) 04 Oct 2019 21:53:41
Ed001 I also miss the match reports. Even when work got busy and I couldn’t get on for a few days when i did the first thing I would look for to read were the match reports.

{Ed001's Note - how could I not make sure to do them now then?? I feel ashamed for letting you all down now!}

22.) 04 Oct 2019 22:06:12
If I remember on the reviews you also included the opposition as well. I don't think that part of review is needed maybe just a few lines on that part.

{Ed001's Note - that was because someone asked for it. But if the consensus is that it is not needed I am happy to cut that out to help save time!}

23.) 04 Oct 2019 22:34:30
I didn't like them ed, so no worries for me haha. seriously tho, as you said there was a pattern to the reviews based on each player that was becoming repetitive. e. g., "player 'a' did this well but. "

So that plus the amount of time you were putting in, I'm glad you've found a more use for your time! The pods are gold!

{Ed001's Note - maybe what I could do, rather than go through player by player is just do an overall dissection of the match and ratings then? That would save me a lot of time not having to find something to say about each player every time!

We will still keep on with the pods don't worry. Actually planning to record a few with me mam when they visit over Christmas, as she has a hell of a lot of stories about football back in the day when Ed025 was young and everything was black and white. All being well, hopefully record a whole series of them while she is here to release.}

24.) 04 Oct 2019 22:50:55
Looks like you have been emotionally blackmailed into these Ed! I’d agree with mark though if you are to do them again I don’t think the opposition is required, the most interesting part was seeing it dissected from a Liverpool perspective.

{Ed001's Note - ok cheers mate.}

25.) 04 Oct 2019 23:47:44
The match reviews had become my favourite part of the sight. Used to love sitting down in work to read with s cup of coffee. Can totally appreciate the work involved in them though Ed. Even an odd one would be great if possible.

{Ed001's Note - thanks mate.}

26.) 05 Oct 2019 01:54:34
Ed01 after each game I was looking forward to read your game review. Your insightful comments were something I loved to read with a cup of coffee. So I guess same as many others! I always skipped the other team though.

{Ed001's Note - this coffee while reading them is becoming a theme!}

27.) 05 Oct 2019 02:47:25
Yeah I loved those too, the site is really missing them, its like Real Madrid w/ o Ronaldo, its still good, its still there, but its missing something! And I totally agree with markp08, that was never a good idea for me, not that much of us cared how the Huddersfield or Palace team played etc. Maybe when we play Barca, Napoli, Munich, or some of the top teams in England, otherwise its not needed in my opinion.

{Ed001's Note - thanks mart.}

28.) 05 Oct 2019 05:13:57
The reviews were amazing! I think like many here, the reason they are preferred is because you can sneak them in whilst at work or during your breakfast read. Really do miss them Ed. I think you've already gathered how many of us were actually reading them now haha. Plus reading is good for the brain or so I've heard.

{Ed001's Note - I am really shocked how many of you are bothered enough to ask for them to come back.}

29.) 05 Oct 2019 08:31:31
Get in! Nice one everyone and Ed1, looking forward to these again!

Lol Walter you crack me up.

{Ed001's Note - and you still haven't emailed me Salah. Don't worry I won't be roping you into ghost writing them for me, I already have neggie doing that for me today ;-)

30.) 05 Oct 2019 09:09:35
The reviews were a must read before. Maybe you could split the review into gk plus defence, midfield, and attacking. Instead of individual players, just a mark for each player. IMO PL reviews would be more than enough leave the cup games for an up and coming writer an ed001 wanbee if you like.

{Ed001's Note - are you offering mark? I would love to read your take.}

31.) 05 Oct 2019 09:17:59
ed1 - the bulk of the responses here seem to like what you used to write. I tend to think that the eds value on this site gives us sophistication to football discussion compared to the rags. and the rags are in to doing on the fly player ratings.

If you were going to do a write up I'd much rather read something less frequent that dives into the analysis of the tactics over a period, thinking behind player selections, issues around form, any inside info on the club, academy up and comers etc etc. That's just me tho lol.

{Ed001's Note - that's not a bad idea that.}

32.) 05 Oct 2019 09:29:02
Hi Ed001

I would definitely love to see a return of the written reviews. They became part of my morning routine with my cup of tea! (Sorry to break trend I hate that bitter stuff! )

A general breakdown of how we played etc would be great


{Ed001's Note - does that make you posh that you have tea rather than coffee?}

33.) 05 Oct 2019 12:01:31
I remember we had this discussion not long ago Ed001, I never realised so many posters missed them as much as me lol.
Yeah definitely find a way to do them but find a way to cut down on the time taken, just watch the game once and take notes while watching it maybe? Also you don’t have to have a full on analysis of every player, if say Fabinho had a very Fabinho type game then just give him a score and move onto the next player. Some players have terrible or really good games for some reason and they are the ones you can go into detail on, I remember when you used to talk about Robertson and TAA a lot because their games where very inconsistent until they started to settle, it’s them types of players I want to read about, VVD and Mané are class and are always class so little point finding things to write about them unless they do something stupid or particularly amazing in a game.
Also make use of some of the posters on the site, have some of us do guest match reviews, it will be good to see the comments afterwards at least. I’m happy to write one up sometime.

{Ed001's Note - I would love some of the posters to write one, whether I do or not, we all see different things in the exact same picture.}

34.) 05 Oct 2019 13:53:02
I am one of the worst writers on this site but if posters are going to take a turn I would probably try doing a review. There must be someone on the site who has a keen interest in sports writing, this could be just the platform they need.

35.) 05 Oct 2019 16:48:19
I think I could try. I just worry I am too thick to do a good job. I do as everyone knows tend to pick out the negatives. If I did try and do one I will try to add some positive notes too.



26 Sep 2019 14:29:45
Afternoon Tris and all the other posters,

How did you rate the young guns last night Ed?

My view.

Brewster - Played deeper than he normally would and at times slightly wider. Obviously Klopp wanted to use him in various positions, the Bobby role (which didn't suit him) and out right. He does link with play quite well but one thing he struggles with is winning aerial battles and is a bit weak physically.

Elliott - Outstanding, his awareness was what impresses me and the fact he runs with his head up and isn't afraid to play the simple yet sensible pass when needed. On the otherside he isn't afraid to take players on and have a go. Amazing feet and a remarkably mature player for such a young age. . Magnificent debut, far to say jaw dropping at times.

Jones - A very strong performance, love the fact he can use two feet and like Elliott has his head up. Grown a lot physiclaly to what he was a year or so ago, would've comfortably been my MOTM had it not been for a certain 16 year old.

Hoever - Mixed bag really, i saw a lot of Joe Gomez in him. He is great on the ball in defensive areas but not so great at marauding forward with it. He for me is a centre half, scored a lovely goal with his head almost Van Dijk esque!

Keheller - Nice, assured and dominant. Can play with his feet which is good to see and made soem important stops. A little bit tetchy coming out and nearly got into bother once or twice but he got away with it. You can see who he models himself on that's for sure.

{Ed001's Note - Brewster got no service and offered little.

Elliott did well. Very well.

Jones was good but terrible decision making at times.

Hoever was too timid and did not get forward enough in wide areas to offer any support. When he did get forward he scored.

Kelleher was assured, though flapped at a cross or two, the rest of the time he was excellent.

To be perfectly honest though, I would not be worrying about any of it. It is just one game in a makeshift side. The only thing that matters is the experience they will have gained, not how they performed. I would rather they made mistakes as they will then have something to learn from for the future.}

1.) 26 Sep 2019 17:31:19
Seen Elliot a couple of times, including pre season, something about him makes me think he’s going to be a really good player should he apply himself and work hard.

2.) 26 Sep 2019 18:41:01
i agree ed the result and one off game is not important for them. there have been 100's of players who've made their debut for us and then not become a regular.

i am just hoping that getting that debut will give them that extra drive and determination to make it.

3.) 26 Sep 2019 19:35:18
Thought all the youngsters played great for sections of the match Elliott aside was up for it for the full 90 looks to have great football intelligence. More valuable for them all though has to be the competitive match experience with the seasoned pros like Milner, Lovren and Lallana so if any are needed during a selection crisis they're going to be better prepared.

4.) 26 Sep 2019 21:01:26
The thing that impressed me most with Elliott. Is for anyone who has played football at any level let alone for a premiership team at 16! They will know how difficult it is to only take one touch on the ball. And several times he had ball fizzed into him. And he wouldn't have a touch, he was just flicking it around the corner or playing first time ball into teammates feet! As simple as it looks, its actually very difficult and takes so much technique and vision knowing what's around you. And so impressive given his age, as usually comes with experience. Let's hope he works hard and keeps a level head. Well done Harvey.



24 Apr 2019 09:09:22
If you don't like to hear the truth, or Ed002's opinion don't ask for it, simple really.

1.) 24 Apr 2019 17:57:00
Or don’t read it but don’t try and deny others the benefit of his/ her expertise 🤝.

Now I understand what ed002 means. You share something you hear and the cretins like lil fighter who roll from the woodwork and throw unnecessary abuse, cool I won't bother you again and will see myself out. Good bye.

To be fair Ed you've always maintained International football is a waste of time.

{Ed001's Note - yes, for me to watch. If I have the chance to play in it then it would be the peak and show I have been one of the best 23 players from that country. That is not to forget this is likely to be the only time you ever get the chance to play in a major tournament for your country as well.}

How about Wily Caballero Ed002? He'd provide good cover, knows the league, would be cost effective and has experience.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath over WC but someone along those lines. Perhaps a tad younger.}

No offence at all Ed001 but you didn’t want us to sign VVD and that worked out fine. MDL is awesome.

{Ed001's Note - no offence taken but he is not awesome. As for van Dijk I gave my reasons for that and it was not a lack of ability to defend unlike de Ligt.}

Catch 22, We need a squad to compete in 5 competitions this year, we don't want to send a player on loan and buy a player to replace them as it would, as you say, block a route to the first team. If we had any injuries etc all players are needed when required.

Looks brilliant and a lot like the player we signed from Belgrade. I hope our recklessness with his work permit doesn't affect his future prospects for work in England, would be gutted if that was the case. He single handedly tore Bayern a new one this season.

I agree with Ed002, this whole big boy bully tactic against the smaller clubs doesn't sit well with me. We already did enough damage to Fulham with Clint Dempsey and now this? you don't want a position where clubs refuse to deal with one another but if LFC aren;t careful then they'll be struck off everyone's Christmas card list.
