Hey Ed’s, hope you’re all traveling well. Just wanted to ask a question in terms of third choice keepers. Are we still actively looking to bring someone (veteran keeper) in for that role? I’ve read that Andy Lonergan joined up with us on pre-season and we have apparent interest in Tom Heaton according to links, but have we looked at anyone else? Thanks heaps for your time and effort.

SkySaleh

{Ed002's Note - Andy Lonergan would be a great choice and from those who know him, he is apparently a good guy. Tom Heaton has miles left in him and if SM were to go may well be a very good option.}


1.) 26 Jul 2019 19:22:51
Due to family, I keep an eye out for Preston and have been to many games. He's obviously not a spring chicken anymore, but Andy Lonergan was a great keeper for PNE and was also apparently a great personality in the dressing room. At the tender age of 35, I think he's a great option for our 3rd choice keeper.


2.) 26 Jul 2019 20:13:12
Sounds like a good guy.

If Ed 002 says it’s a good choice that would do for me.

Plus Epic Potato has vouched for him.

All good it seems.


3.) 26 Jul 2019 20:47:54
Heaton is an upgrade on mignolet, and allows the younger keepers to go on loan of mignolet leaves. With Heaton not being first choice at Burnley, seems like a good idea.


4.) 26 Jul 2019 21:49:50
I agree with Ed002. Heaton is a decent choice. I don’t know much of Lonergan, other than he acquitted himself very well the day. I’d be happy with either as an experienced number 2.


5.) 26 Jul 2019 22:17:38
I actually don't think Heaton is an upgrade on Mignolet. He's a good shot stopper, but his ball play and anticipation off the line are nowhere near Simon's level.

He may have been a good keeper for Burnley, but Liverpool require a different kind of keeper that is good with the ball and acts as a kind of sweeper. Sure, Mignolet isn't the best at this but he has learn't to bring it into his game and in that respect is far ahead of Heaton.


6.) 26 Jul 2019 23:07:40
Heaton would be a great no2 but I doubt he wants to be a no2.
He fought to win the first team shirt at Burnley.


7.) 26 Jul 2019 23:12:35
Sorry but Mignolet makes far too many errors to be relied upon, and given that the primary purpose of a goalkeeper is to stop the ball going into the goal, I’d rather have a competent keeper like Heaton than Mignolet, who gifts a soft goal almost every game.


8.) 27 Jul 2019 07:50:15
I am with 6times on this one.
Mignolet fills me with no confidence at all! Every time he is on the pitch you feel like an error could happen at any moment.


9.) 27 Jul 2019 08:22:42
We will not win a cup if Mignolet keeps playing.


10.) 27 Jul 2019 09:59:49
Heaton is a really good keeper, before he got injured a couple of seasons ago, he should've been starting for England. Certainly wouldn't mind him as backup/ competition.


11.) 27 Jul 2019 10:55:56
Epic potato, have you watched Mignolet? He’s nowhere near good enough and is a mistake waiting to happen.


12.) 27 Jul 2019 11:39:14
OK, I may have over-emphasised and shouldn't have used words such as "far better". It's easier to look good as a keeper when you have plenty of shots being fired at you. At Burnley, Heaton had a lot of work to do.

It was the same with Mignolet when he was at Sunderland. He had a lot of saves to make each game and when we signed him, I thought we were getting one hell of a keeper.

You don't know how well a keeper will perform in a top team when they don't have a lot to do all game. There's plenty examples over the years of a keeper looking great at a lower club but failing to make the grade once they've stepped up.


13.) 27 Jul 2019 11:47:09
I disagree with you on Mignolet, Epic. My recollections of him at Sunderland was although yes he faced a lot of shots, he also let in soft goals and was poor on crosses. Which is why I could never understand what our scouts had seen in him.


14.) 27 Jul 2019 18:39:11
It "should" be irrelevant anyway. If Tom Heaton has anything competitive about him, he wouldn't want to be backup for who is probably the world's best goalkeeper and "should" play every game. It simply doesn't come down to healthy competition. Alisson isn't going to lose his place. Unlike when we had Migs and Karius fighting to be No. 1.

Considering how good Alisson is, and will more than likely play every game, I'd be happy for our veteran be the backup keeper and for the third choice go to a youngster. Similar to how Caballero has been for City and Chelsea.


15.) 27 Jul 2019 21:35:53
The lad from Preston looks competent and a lot of people say good things about him. He’d do a good job as far as I’m concerned.


16.) 28 Jul 2019 12:18:04
6Times, I've stated on another thread that I've PNE fans in my family and saw Andy Lonergan play plenty of times. He was a cracking keeper for Preston. I'd be more than happy for him to be number two and let Mignolet get first team football elsewhere.

An international goalkeeper at the age of 31 should be playing somewhere where he would be 1st choice.


 

 

11 Jul 2019 06:50:17
Hey Ed’s, just a quick one. Do you see Harry Wilson in Liverpool’s long term plans? Has he done enough on loan to be given a chance this upcoming season with us? Or are we actively looking for a sale or loan? Thanks for all the good work guys.

SkySaleh

{Ed001's Note - this has been said a hundred times already mate, he is for sale. He doesn't work hard enough off the ball.}


1.) 11 Jul 2019 07:32:16
Thanks Ed001, didn’t see the question before mate, sorry for asking again. Do you still see us going in for an attacking player that can play a versatile attacking role? Thanks for your time Ed.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, still looking.}


2.) 11 Jul 2019 08:21:55
Yeah and you can't really teach that if he doesn't have it in his gut.

Btw I watched Cornet in Lyon vs Man City last night and oh yes I'll have me some of that.


3.) 11 Jul 2019 09:43:43
with the club pricing him out of a move at the moment for an outright sale, do you think we may see him heading out on loan again?


4.) 11 Jul 2019 10:03:18
Why do we always put such a high value that no one is willing to pay on players like Wilson?

Surely the price can be dropped with some sort of clause in the contract that if said team sells him on we get a cut?


5.) 11 Jul 2019 10:33:33
Hi ED01,
You have mentioned that klopp by poeple inside LFC to give him a chance? So it's klopp's and coaching stuff decision to put him up for sale?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}


6.) 11 Jul 2019 11:48:28
Eds1 when you say still looking for an versatile attacking midfield. are we actually still scouting or we know our top 5 targets and it’s a case of brokering a deal with one of them.

{Ed001's Note - scouting will always go on, even when a list of choices has been made.}


7.) 11 Jul 2019 12:01:09
Have you any insight into how Wilson’s attitude is with improving to be a LFC player? Is he keen to work within Klopps way and work harder off the ball or is he another quality kid turned brat that thinks he’s made it already so doesn’t have to?

I was hoping he’d get a chance and grab it. Getting a bit tired of hearing about these great players in our youth teams that seem to be the answer then actually aren’t even close. Ibe, Kent, Ojo now possibly Wilson.

I completely understand why there’s such a split with fans either wanting to splash cash or give youth their chance.

{Ed001's Note - he had a few issues when he was younger after getting loads of hype. While he knuckled down a bit to a degree, it is unlikely he will ever be suited to Klopp's way of playing.}


8.) 11 Jul 2019 12:02:51
JT the club has done well selling players for the price they believe is right. Look at players like Solanke. It was reported that we got 19 mil for him. If that was the case 25 mil for Wilson isn't overpriced.


9.) 11 Jul 2019 12:21:34
Still looking Ed001, anyone new you are aware of mate or nothing outside of the usual few mentioned on here?

{Ed001's Note - no mate nothing new.}


10.) 11 Jul 2019 15:38:25
@JT

I don't think that we do overprice our players.

Solanke, Ibe, Ings, Ward etc have all been sold for considerable sums which represent much better business than years gone by where we would be making considerable losses on sales.

Well done Liverpool transfer team!


11.) 11 Jul 2019 16:14:37
Wilson is a very talented young footballer he just is unlikely to suit Liverpool high intensity style of play. Wonder how he compared to the likes of Milner and Lallana in the pre season runs.
He will suit other teams tho and do very well for them even if he doesn't adjust his style of play/ effort off the ball.
So just because he likely won't make at Liverpool doesn't mean he isn't worth a good price. suso may be a sort of example of having success playing a different style of footbaal.


12.) 11 Jul 2019 22:27:30
Sorry to push the question but is it possible Lampard told him not to track back as his talents lay further forward, or were Derby frustrated with his efforts defensively?

{Ed001's Note - Derby played a different type of game, your question left out other possible answers.}


13.) 12 Jul 2019 04:48:51
Work ethic off the ball can be encouraged and its value can be taught. Willfully choosing not to do it is a different problem altogether. Attitude is as important as talent. If this truly is the sole problem for Wilson, it's time to move on.


14.) 12 Jul 2019 19:26:31
I know it was only a preseason game against Tranmere, but Wilson was not the highlight feature. Kent looked just as good if not better when they were on the pitch together. Ryan Kent didn't half put a shift in.


15.) 12 Jul 2019 20:30:17
Wilson did put a shift in last season at Derby. Sometimes the penny does drop. I hope he uses pre season to work his way into Klopp’s plans as there is a very good footballer there that just needs coaxing out.


16.) 13 Jul 2019 05:38:10
I don't think it's necessarily as simple to just say he doesn't have the work rate. It's just his overall style doesn't fit well for us, lack of pace and aggression on and off the ball, he not suited to a high tempo running team. A very good player with hopefully a bright future but he needs the right team to suit his play.

The likes of riquelme, deco, sneijder, all star players in the right side but would never suit us under klopp due to playing style.


17.) 13 Jul 2019 12:31:14
Suppose changing of managers for the first team really affects the players in the youth system as playing styles vary so much does the managers style filter through the youth teams or are they managed independently of the senior team?

Hey ed001, loving the new podcasts and ask the Ed section, great work mate, please keep them up! Any chance we can get a player profile on John McGinn? Thanks a lot mate.

SkySaleh

{Ed001's Note - McGinn is on the list mate.}


1.) 09 Aug 2019 17:59:13
Mcginn going to be the darkhorse this season.


2.) 09 Aug 2019 18:08:03
Talksport just been bigging up Mcginn and especially Grealish. Interesting to see how both do with the step up this year. From an outsider point of view.


 

 

03 Apr 2019 18:38:48
Hey ed001, when you have the time do you think you could put together a profile on everyone's favourite Liverpool defender, Joel Matip? I bet it'll be an interesting read. Cheers mate.

SkySaleh

{Ed001's Note - there already is one HERE mate.}


1.) 03 Apr 2019 18:48:41
Thanks Ed, mustn't have noticed it from last year. He has got to be one of the most frustrating players to watch at LFC, to be honest I think he's rubbish and I do hope we move him on sooner rather than later.

{Ed001's Note - you rate him that highly? Wow! ;-)


2.) 03 Apr 2019 20:20:24
To be fair, he has done an ok job for us in the absence of Gomez and Lovren. I was fearful when those 2 were out injured, but Matip has stepped up, in my opinion. He is never going to be the best, but alongside VVD, he did a decent job.


3.) 03 Apr 2019 20:51:42
Regardless of opinions on Matip. Fair play to the guy, he stepped up when we really needed him. And has done decent job, and finally managed to string more than 4 games together without injury.


4.) 03 Apr 2019 20:59:31
Ann idea how far joe is from joining in any games eds.

{Ed002's Note - There is no date - he won't be rushed.}


5.) 04 Apr 2019 01:47:46
Ed was there a reason that he has been playing over Lovren? Was it down to Lovren having niggling injuries or something else?

{Ed001's Note - Lovren was out injured and Klopp just kept faith with Matip when Lovren returned.}


6.) 04 Apr 2019 08:40:29
I think Matip is better than Lovern. Lovern can have absolutely brillant games and then do something to cost us next game.

4.) 24 Dec 2018 14:35:15
All in all 2018 has been a difficult year for so many of us our friends and family.

The one shining light in all the doom and gloom has been Jurgen and his red machine.

Just love how LFC is getting back to where we all want us to be.

No chickens to be counted at this time of the season though it’s okay for a turkey to be stuffed.

Rafa is great but he has three points that belong to us. Once we have them we can wish him a Happy New Year.

Merry Christmas and best wishes to one and all at LFC.


5.) 24 Dec 2018 17:15:02
I'm going to do that bet polecat, 4-0 It is. Merry Christmas one and all. Stay safe.


6.) 24 Dec 2018 19:39:04
Merry Christmas fellow reds and the Eds! Hope you all get what you wanted (3pts on Boxing Day) and I wish everyone all the best for the new year.

9.) 25 Dec 2018 00:48:43
Merry Christmas from Japan lads and eds!

As has been said before, in a difficult year we all take joy from the way our team is moving forward.

Take care, stay safe and be good to each other.


10.) 25 Dec 2018 13:25:57
Still can't get used to a hot Christmas day around the pool here in oz. Just had lunch at another ex-pats place. We cranked up the air con full blast and put the fire on, lovely. Didn't want to head out into 32 degree heat to go home.

Thanks for the daily write up, Ed. How do you think Wagner will go at the helm of Schalke? And also, how did you think he did with Huddersfield in the Prem? Thanks, mate.

SkySaleh

{Ed001's Note - it depends. The Wagner in the Championship was excellent, but he lost his way when they got up and forgot what worked for them and tried to turn them into a ball-dominant passing team, which did not suit them. If he reverts to his quick attacking high press tactics, he will do well. Schalke are not good enough to dominate the ball.}
