Hi Ed001,

Do you see a twist to our formation for the second half of the season. Let's say, if Minamino gel quickly in the team. Do you see a tactical tweak of 4-3-3 , 4-2-3-1, 4-2-2-2 wide.

Will appreciate your feedback as to how you feel it will go for the second half of the season. Will not mind adding a domestic cup to our cabinet as well before the end of this season.

{Ed001's Note - it changes constantly throughout the game anyway, depending on how it is going, I doubt it will be changed much from that.}

We are way too flexible tactically on the pitch for anyone to pigeon-hole our players into specific positions. For ex. any of our mids (bar Naby and Lallana, IMO) can play the 6 or the 8 while any of our front 3 can play anywhere upfront. Minamino can play on either flank or in the 10 or as a second striker. I don't think anything will change, really, like Ed said.

Hi Ed,

Who amongst the current young players in the league, will suit our style play, let's say in a season or two.

YNWA.

Van Dijk

{Ed001's Note - the one I would go for is the Brighton centre-back on loan at Leeds, whose name complete escapes me. Aarons of Norwich would be excellent as well but as he plays right-back he might struggle to get games.}

Thanks for your response Ed01.
What do you think of Hwang-Hee chan of Salzburg. It seems Klopp love some other players in that squad.
What do you think of him as a player and will he fit our system.
Is he any different to what we already have?

YNWA.

{Ed001's Note - lots of pace but absolutely no end product and not good enough technique for my liking.}

Ben White.

I think everyone is asking about lee coz he got vvd on the ground ed01😅.

{Ed001's Note - yeah but then failed to take advantage.}

Max Aarons can play left back as well, ed001. Think he'd be excellent cover for both full back positions if we can sign him for a snip if/ when Norwich go down, especially since he'd be home grown for PL registration purposes.

Hwang-Hee Chan looks like he could be heading to Wolves.

It can't be good for Salzberg's season to let Minamino, Haaland and Chan leave in the same transfer window.

Hi Ed01,

Given our current squad, which position so you see us looking at, during the summer transfer Windows.

Always appreciate your remarks on the team.

YNWA!

Van Dijk

{Ed001's Note - far too early to say but right now full-backs look in need of cover.}


1.) 28 Dec 2019 15:58:21
Would be great to have a full back able to cover both sides. This is why I was a little disappointed we didn’t get Perrera. Our full backs are so important to how we play and it’s so noticeable when Milner or Gomez are filling in.


2.) 28 Dec 2019 16:09:15
Anyone in particular we should be looking at Ed001? Difficult position for us because of the we our fullbacks play.

{Ed001's Note - there are a few good ones, but not sure who I would say would be worth going for as they are only going to play sometimes.}


3.) 28 Dec 2019 21:04:52
Westwood666,I don't know BUT I just don't rate Perreira from LC. He looks the part for sure BUT he seems to lack physicality and bite in the challenge while he is often caught out when he goes forward. He also positionally suspect. He does play in a system where his flaws are well-hidden BUT vs good teams like say, LFC he gets exposed.

What about Hoever and Williams!

Could we be looking to making a move on him during the summer transfer window and who do you think he can usurp in the team or is it just a case of increasing the squad depth?

Van Dijk

{Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly predict the timing of transfers. There will be interest in Liverpool players in the summer - Real Madrid may look to Sadio Mane for example and perhaps he would provide a suitable replacement if he were to leave. But my expectation is that Liverpool will look to hang on to their three primary attacking players and perhaps refine the depth - and the problem with the higher-end or higher-cost players is that they want to be in the starting line-up. Certainly Barcelona will have him available for sale or possibly trade in the summer.}

I couldn't agree more with your take on the game. It might seem difficult from a point but for the return leg to be in front of the fans, is the best time to react. We were the better side all through and yet tasted defeat. We need to continue to push and let's see what the end of the season holds. Regardless of the end, this is a BIG STEP forward for the club and we are two to three players short of matching MAN CITY.

couldn't agree more Para-red. We need to be at our full support in recent years to spur us to the FINAL. Is it doable yes, can we overcome three goals yes, We need to be at full voice, just like the first leg against Man City last season's quarter final. I have never experienced such an atmosphere before. it is WOW.
YNWA.
