Ed1 - I re watched "Moneyball" yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Got me thinking on our own (Downing and Carrol) venture into Moneyball.
Any chance you can add to your ever growing list of articles or even just give a snippet on your take on the theory and practice in general and specifically for Liverpool?
Many thanks!

Thank you sir ????.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome.}

"Moneyball" is the name of a movie about the implementation of Sabermetrics at the Oakland Athletics baseball team. Here is a link to the concepth: ttps:/ / sabr. org/ sabermetrics.

Ed2 - hello! Something I've been wondering about and hoping you can assist with (might very well not be the place for it - will totally understand if that's the case. )
I am a former Israeli and noticed you mentioned going to Israel a lot lately.
In my humble opinion, Israeli football is (and has been) in a mess for a while now with countries like Northern Ireland, Albania and Iceland living us well and truly behind.
Israeli footballers (Benni aside) are generally also pretty lazy (at least by reputation) which cannot help matters - but the issues are far greater than just that.
If you will, I hope that you have some insight into how the recent changes introduced (Austrian management team) might affect the future fir Israeli football for better or worse?
Are they on the right track?
As usual, huge thanks for anything you could add!

{Ed002's Note - There have been a number of decent players (Tal Ben Haim is still playing as is Ben Sahar) but they don't have enough to pick a good national side from. The change of coach will not really help.}

1.) 17 Jun 2019 19:36:32
Are you in Israel on RA business Ed002, if you don’t mind me asking?
Israel is a bit out of the way otherwise unless you’re covering Middle East politics or are Jewish?
Just being a nosey parker 😀.

{Ed002's Note - None of those. But business.}

2.) 17 Jun 2019 20:45:36
Yeah I think it is a cultural thing unfortunately and seems to be getting worse.
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to answer.

3.) 17 Jun 2019 20:47:33
Actually, while I am here (and only if you are feeling terribly charitable. ) - Manor Salomon.
Second coming or Meh?

{Ed002's Note - I can't help sorry. The pick of the crop right now is seen as Munas Dabbur.}

4.) 18 Jun 2019 00:37:15
Former Israeli? Did you relinquish your nationality or you're a spy who switched sides?

Ed1 - Salah penalty stone cold penalty or is it just me? Not sure what was Neville's issue with it?

The Jurgenator

{Ed001's Note - looked clearcut to me.}

1.) 21 Apr 2019 19:39:19
I think it's one of them that is a definite foul but, unless he goes to the floor, it isn't given.

2.) 21 Apr 2019 19:49:28
Thought that too, looked an absolute stonewall.

3.) 21 Apr 2019 20:10:06
If the foul occurred anywhere else on the pitch it would have been a free kick, so it was a clear penalty. The defender wrapped his arms around Salah for several seconds, he forced the ref into the decision.

4.) 21 Apr 2019 20:57:26
Salah had nowhere to go but to the floor. IMO the ref would have given it if Salah went over or not, he was just waiting for any advantage that played out.

5.) 21 Apr 2019 21:07:55
It was wwf.

6.) 21 Apr 2019 21:07:59
Colin will use it as his press conference rant.
100% guaranteed.

7.) 21 Apr 2019 21:08:42
Stonewall, the real issue is that if the player doesn’t go down it doesn’t get given. I’ve said it a hundred times, refs need to give fouls without the need for players to hit the deck. If Salah hadn’t, and that’s what Neville was moaning about- the way he went down, it never would have been given. The defender had both arms round him for a good 5 seconds.

8.) 21 Apr 2019 21:30:32
Spot on Ron! At least he’s predictable with his moaning. If you start cuddling forwards as a defender you are going to give away pens. And as for sly shirt pulls, how many of those have we not been given, this or any season? A very good result today win by a team sticking with it and doing their jobs. Hope Fabs is ok for the last few games.

9.) 21 Apr 2019 22:19:34
Maybe they can ask Warnock (not arsed about his Colin anagram) how many times and for how long a defender can grab and man-handle a striker in the box before the ref should give a penalty. If that is not a penalty then we should all pack up and go home.

10.) 21 Apr 2019 22:32:39
From the first view from the back I would say no but when you see it from the front it’s 100% a pen. And the ref had a brilliant view and gave it straight away.

11.) 22 Apr 2019 00:26:15
Longthing76, spot on. The ref had the best view of it cos like you say, he saw the incident from the front AND from the side. As for Warnock saying Salah dived, the adage that says, "It is better to be silent and be thought of as a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt" royally applies here.

12.) 22 Apr 2019 05:14:00
For me 100% stone wall penalty as pointed out anywhere else on the pitch and it’s given as a free kick without hesitation. Cardiff had plenty of opportunity to take his hands off him and didn’t. Maybe Salah makes the most of it but good on him if he’s going to be constantly fouled like that.
Also if it had been a corner and a defender had his arms like that on a player when the ball is coming in the red would blow for a penalty as well. And we’ve seen plenty of those given. As for Neville how many times have we heard him say “he’s made the ref ask the question with that tackle” he said it enough times against us. He’s just rubbishting it as he sees us so close to that title and United are a million miles away.

13.) 22 Apr 2019 06:46:01
It comes back to the age-old debate: if you have the ball in the box and you are obviously fouled, should you go to the floor?
Salah was continually fouled for about 5 seconds and the ref wasnt blowing, so he dropped and, voila, its a penalty. He could have possibly stayed on his feet but why would you when the ref isn't penalising an obvious offence?
If the ref isn't going to punish a foul unless you are lying on the grass, i have no problem whatsoever with players taking the horizontal option. At least Salah tried to fend the defender off before realising he was left without much option.

14.) 22 Apr 2019 09:49:51
Like a Virgil, spot on. Maybe these so called "experts" should tell us for how long a player has to stay on his feet after being man-handled by an opposing defender before the ref should award a free/ spot kick. Why? Cos their analysis seem to change depending on who the player is or the club he plays for.

Ed1, on behalf of an expecting nation - match review? ☺.

The Jurgenator

{Ed001's Note - oh sorry I forgot to upload it! I will do that now.}

1.) 16 Apr 2019 15:00:37
Ha no worries ed now read it and it is as great as usual.
You now have a baying mob demanding their fix after every game - we are all addicted to these 😁.

{Ed001's Note - I just hope they continue to be written after wins for a long time to come!}

2.) 16 Apr 2019 16:17:33
Amen and hallelujah.

{Ed001's Note - if I had a penny for each time I was asked for one, I would have a lot more money than I do now. Might even be up to 50p by now...}



16 Mar 2019 07:45:45
Ed1, what are barbiturates? 😅.

The Jurgenator

{Ed001's Note - check the label on the bottle you got from the doctor on your wife's askance....}

1.) 16 Mar 2019 09:11:26
Top form ed1 😅
And sorry missed from first post - great match review as always 👍.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate. And it's ok, clearly the pills are working.}

2.) 16 Mar 2019 11:36:02
Lucky jammer, I'd love to get my hands on a bottle of barbys.

3.) 16 Mar 2019 14:31:52
Where was the match review ed001 must have missed it.

{Ed001's Note - here mate

4.) 16 Mar 2019 23:20:55
I must say, I thought Firmino was guilty of giving the ball away cheaply a lot in the first half.

It will be an easier task replacing Salah than Milner.
Great news if true.

Honestly why does it always get this difficult?!
Ed2 is very clear in what he is saying but somehow there is always a "he hates us 😭" reply.
If you want an example of signing good players in a smart - not 75 million way - consider an 8 million left back from Hull.
