Got some info that Schurs had agreed personal terms with Crystal Palace' but the valuation between 2 clubs is very far apart, will come as blow to us if he goes south, if we really were interested.

It seems Kloop has prioritised midfield before bidding for CB' so we will have matip and gomez.

It's being reported on the Football365 website as aggregated on NewsNow, for context.


2.) 14 Jul 2023 18:22:04
Maybe Guehi is being sold by Palace and he is the replacement - just wondering and definitely not read or ITK. Not saying Guehi coming to us, but would welcome him.

{Ed002's Note - Obsession with Chelsea’s Academy continues.}


3.) 14 Jul 2023 18:37:55
Thanks Ed002, honestly didn’t know he came from Chelsea Academy, got to say they really do produce some excellent talent - great to see.


4.) 14 Jul 2023 20:01:28
You rather like Chelsea fc don't you Mr. Ed002?! ?.

{Ed002's Note - Not as much as Klopp seemingly.}


5.) 14 Jul 2023 20:06:00
That’s ok Ed002, our obsession with taking your best players and turning them into superstars and then selling our players to you, for them never to play as well as they did with us can continue for as long as it likes. (Salah/ Torres/ Benayoun etc)
Levi is next on our agenda wants some scouse instead of jellied eels I hear, come on Levi, jump ship ?!

{Ed002's Note - When did Liverpool sell Salah to Chelsea?}


6.) 14 Jul 2023 23:08:54
I was not looking to instigate a debate about players from and to Chelsea, just appreciate the Chelsea Academy players produced - some excellent talent.

I know very little, just love watching football, chose Liverpool a lack of geographical knowledge (was very young in early 80’s) and picked a random team ??‍♂️ supported since.

Exciting season ahead, we’ve improved, Arsenal have and still plenty of transfer window left - thrilling times and for Ed002 - a new and talented manager - would be great to see Chelsea back in the mix ??

An exciting season ahead and some superb teams - great football and no rivalries - just the beautiful game ?.


7.) 15 Jul 2023 05:44:25
Without rivalries the game is nothing.
Great to have you as a fellow supporter Dr Who but rivalry is everything in football.


8.) 15 Jul 2023 07:06:04
Rivalry is great in sport but in football, it has devolved to be come extremely toxic and hateful.

But going back to the original topic, Chelsea have a wonderful academy and their infrastructure is something that we should be looking to implement. It isn't far from the truth to say that they have the best youth set-up in the country.


9.) 15 Jul 2023 07:59:55
Not saying that Chelsea don’t have a great academy set up, but I seem to remember when Chelsea was the Man City of the league a few years back and was spending Abramovich‘s billions like it was peanuts, they stockpiled all the best young talent around for year after year.


10.) 15 Jul 2023 08:53:35
From what i remember John Terry is the only good player out the Chelsea accademy i remember. We had, fowler, owen, gerrard, carra, mcmanamon, now we got trent, lampard cole, ashley cole all non Chelsea. So i would say our accadamy has much more world class players out of it than theirs.


11.) 15 Jul 2023 05:42:20
Ed002, you know what I mean, your management team couldn’t develop Salah into the phenomenon that Klopp has developed him into you pushed the boy out to Italy where we seen a player and made him what he is today.
Chelsea fans would do anything to have a manager like Klopp sir, you know it!

{Ed002's Note - That is pretty embarrassing.}


 

 

31 May 2023 07:50:09
Hi Eds are any clubs interested in Thiago and Fabinho, I would sell the pair if there is a decent offer.

We will be left with Hendo, Bajetic, Jones and Elliot as our Mid options.
Trent to play as a Mid as well.

We can then go for 3 new Mids from MacAllister, Kone, Thuram, M Savic and Rabiot.

bhav_reds

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}


1.) 31 May 2023 10:42:44
Thanks Eds, they must be on very bug salaries to make them unaffordable for other clubs. Seems two other mids in line for free transfer till their contract ends.

Is it true that RBL tried to get Keita back in January? They did bid a small amount to take him back?

bhav_reds

{Ed002's Note - They wanted an initial loan.}


1.) 10 Feb 2023 10:17:30
We can set up a go fund me and get him a taxi.


2.) 10 Feb 2023 10:25:58
What's the point of a loan to us when he's out of contract in the summer? It's as good as a sale. I swear clubs take the biscuit at times.


3.) 10 Feb 2023 11:04:52
I hate it when clubs take the biscuit. Especially when they start behaving like hobnobs

{Ed014's Note - Keita is defo the knob bit!


4.) 10 Feb 2023 10:57:20
Yes, thanka for reply Ed002, but don't see point of loan when he is out of contract in summer, also not sure why they have not worked on pre contract agreement with him? Or are they working on it already?

{Ed002's Note - They wanted him on loan to cover for three injured midfield players they have. It would have been possible if Liverpool had done the sensible thing and added a CM player and it would have got his wages and bonuses off the books - that would have been the benefit to the club. His agent continues to offer him around and there is some interest but I understand there is no firm offer to the player on the table at this time.}


5.) 10 Feb 2023 10:48:21
It’s not like we’d of missed him.


6.) 10 Feb 2023 12:49:04
Can anyone honestly think of a reason why any club would want to sign Keita. Football must be the only job in the world that continually rewards mediocrity.


7.) 10 Feb 2023 13:35:27
As a civil servant working for the moj, I can assure you that mediocrity is not only rewarded, but incompetence often actively encouraged in other professions.


8.) 10 Feb 2023 14:13:31
Ed hope game time is one of his bonus’s.


9.) 10 Feb 2023 13:15:34
Mediocrity. that's quite generous of you Johnny.

I saw something that A C Milan are chasing Naby. I hope they catch him.


13.) 10 Feb 2023 18:21:31

See also politics and pundits at talkSPORT.


14.) 10 Feb 2023 21:51:46
Poor player. Attitude, contribution and level of play. Possibly Jurgens worst full-contract signing.


15.) 10 Feb 2023 23:25:13
Could you imagine the fallout if we’d let a midfield player go during what everyone keeps saying is a midfield crisis? Perhaps Klopp thought he could make a contribution for the rest of the season and from what I am seeing he is probably right.
We really need to stop this Keita witch hunt and try actually supporting the lad whilst he’s here. God knows we need him to be on form right now.


16.) 11 Feb 2023 06:12:56
West Derby Wanderer…. you mention AC Milan are chasing Naby and you hope they catch him…. believe me if my Nan was chasing Naby she would catch him ….


17.) 11 Feb 2023 12:54:40
AC Delco more likely paid in pies and onion gravy.


 

 

14 Dec 2022 08:41:46
Eds002 please can you confirm if we have interest in 19 year old Scalvini from Atlanta as one of 2 midfield targets.

I think we will go for 1 1st team and costly midfielder but we will also get a 2nd who will be cheaper with high ceiling.

bhav_reds

{Ed002's Note - Giorgio Scalvini (CB/DM) Spurs, Juventus and Southampton have shown an interest in the young centre back who has also covered for Koopmeiners as a DM this season.}


1.) 14 Dec 2022 12:09:15
Thanks for the reply Ed so more or Fabinio understudy.

Jordan Sancho available at 40m
I see talent and potential if he cares to apply himself. Worth a look?

bhav_reds

{Ed014's Note - Jesus, even at 4p you’d be getting mugged right off!

I say buy him ??


1.) 09 Jun 2024 21:19:16
No chance.
He’s overvalued. We have better youngsters.


2.) 09 Jun 2024 21:45:11
Potential? How old is he?


3.) 09 Jun 2024 21:54:26
Is this a wind up?


4.) 09 Jun 2024 22:41:10
End of the day it's the right player at the right price and into the right situation.

I've no preconceived ideas of Jadon so it'd really depend on the fit with Slot and the new team.


5.) 09 Jun 2024 23:19:53
Remember how he took the Premier League by storm before? 40m is a serious investment, not the sort of spare change you can risk on seeing if a player might come good. Why even consider one of United’s failures?


6.) 10 Jun 2024 03:59:26
There’s another recent thread about someone we bought for @ £40m which was described as ‘not much’. The player we bought wasn’t really received well by a lot of people on this forum but is now a legend. Just saying, as they say.

{Ed001's Note - difference is Salah had talent and an excellent attitude. Sancho has always been a prick, even as a youngster he had an awful attitude, and nowhere near the talent he thinks he has. Such an exceedingly average player, even in the Bundesliga, let alone in the Prem. Why would anyone consider such dross?}


7.) 10 Jun 2024 05:02:53
I’m hoping that for the price Jordan Sancho has better work rate, attitude and a more varied game than Jadon sancho.


8.) 10 Jun 2024 06:32:42
Salah’s fee was £36.9 million also. I know how you like to be specific WDW ?.


9.) 10 Jun 2024 07:45:48
Jessie Lingards available and even cheaper!


10.) 10 Jun 2024 07:58:15
In fairness Darwins Evolution, Peter Beardsley was a Man United failure and we signed him. As for Sancho though, has an appalling attitude. Was given a dusting down by his manager for constantly being late and other issues, instead of apologising and knuckling down, he downed tools. United will be lucky to get half of what they’re asking, given that he’s on something like £375k a week, no one is going to pay that and his huge wage demands given the aggro that he caused.


11.) 10 Jun 2024 08:50:15
I’d rather spend £40m on someone who will make us a better team.


12.) 10 Jun 2024 09:44:17
In fairness Victor, you had to go back 35 years to find an example. They have had hundreds of flops since then that we quite rightly have avoided even when we were scraping the bottom of the transfer market. there's not a single United player in their current squad that would improve our team, let alone one of their misfit rejects.

{Ed077's Note - Mainoo says hello ?


13.) 10 Jun 2024 10:05:52
Mainoo? He’s had a streak of scoring winning goals that have been easy on the eye but he drifts out of games. Six months ago no-one knew him. Maybe he’s top notch or maybe he’s this year’s Macheda.


14.) 10 Jun 2024 10:40:13
Mainoo looks an excellent player to be fair, he looks like somebody who can reach worldie level in two or three years (or even less) given he keeps working on his game and awareness
There’s a lot of hype to be sure but he does really look the part, though given the toxic atmosphere at United you never know how their prospects will turn out.


15.) 10 Jun 2024 10:41:38
Also to the person who mentioned lingardinho, it might interest you to know that he can’t even get a game at fc Seoul, and has been publicly slated by his coach for strolling around in games….


16.) 10 Jun 2024 11:48:58
I think the Lingard comment was a joke?


17.) 10 Jun 2024 12:21:00
Mainoo got over ran and outplayed by Iceland, too much pressure on him from media, he shouldn't be starting in front of Trent, struggles to finish a match too.


18.) 10 Jun 2024 12:42:17
Mainoo is a great player though. Full of work rate and has good technique to boot. If he were a Liverpool player, we would all be saying that he's the reason why we didn't get Bellingham.

I wouldn't mind Garnacho from this current Utd team as well. Has a very punchable face but is fast, direct, and a hard worker.

{Ed001's Note - Garnacho? Not for me, I am not convinced by him at all. Love his work rate but his actual play is mostly poor. I prefer Amad Diallo of their widemen, not sure why he never got the same chances.}


19.) 10 Jun 2024 12:56:05
How is mainoo in the England team anyway, kids a breath of fresh air at United because the senior pros are rubbish but seriously if there is no1 better to pick than him what chance do England have.

{Ed001's Note - he is in it because he is a very good player who deserves his place.}


20.) 10 Jun 2024 15:50:26
Bhav_reds, I looked and there is NOTHING to see there. Im keeping it moving.


21.) 10 Jun 2024 16:15:14
I would not be suprised if Arsenal bought Sancho their sort of player.


22.) 10 Jun 2024 22:09:17
Fair point about Sancho’s character Ed01 - shame about his attitude because I do think there is / was some potential there.

{Ed001's Note - really? I have never seen him play well. I have read match reports afterwards that suggested he was amazing, but they never tally with what I have just watched. I don't think he has the intelligence, football-wise, to ever utilise any talent he has.}


 

 

16 May 2024 18:12:40
We need a new starting CB and DM
.
May be sell Konate to make space or spend money and have the new CB replace Matip.

VVD, konate/ SVB, new CB and Quansah will be CB options with Gomez as 5th choice.

In Mid Thiago is going, I could see we moving on frok Endo, C Jones or Gravenberch

We have Mac, Soboz, Elliot, baj as midfield along with one of above 2.

bhav_reds

1.) 16 May 2024 20:15:17
I'd sell Gomez,3rd choice rightback and already 4th choice CB before we more than likely strenghten there or give Van Den Berg who's been excellent in Germany a shot. Would bring in decent cash towards actual first 11 starters.


2.) 16 May 2024 21:17:10
Aside from the fact that he’s rubbish too - a complete liability as a “jack of all trades”! Definitely sell him ?.


3.) 16 May 2024 22:02:40
Shultzy are you a mechanic by any chance?


4.) 17 May 2024 02:10:39
Sell Gomez? Are you brain dead? what am I reading here, do you forget how good he was the majority of this season? Short memory you have. My f'n god.


5.) 17 May 2024 03:57:15
Sell Konate more to the point, he is injury prone, cannot string more than 4-5 games together, plays well for two games then lacks consistency and I find him clumsy too, just don’t rate him.
Keep Gomez for his versatility.


6.) 17 May 2024 05:10:47
At the beginning of the year and all the way until February, we were all singing praises of Gomez, saying tuag he has improved this season and should be pushing for a place on the England squad. Fast forward to after what has been a disastrous April for the entire team and we are now saying that he's a liability and should be sold. The word fickle comes to mind.

{Ed025's Note - i have never changed my stance on him Drac, clumsy player who will always be a liability mate..


7.) 17 May 2024 07:59:57
I’d keep konate he covers 2 positions with Trent flying about, is quick and I think Klopp was over cautious and chopped and changed too much.


8.) 17 May 2024 08:05:40
Ed025, is spot on in my view. I may catch some stick for this but I don't think Gomez has played well this season at all. I think people have just willed it into their minds that he did, because I've seen him play genuinely well maybe 3 or 4 times all season.

He's been better than the previous few years because he's been playing at full back and getting more regular minutes, but he's still very limited on the ball and weak defensively. The amount of attacks he has wasted blazing a shot over, sliding a simple give and go straight off the back of the pitch for a goal kick or smashing a cross straight out of play is ridiculous. More importantly though, he's still weak in the air, positionally clueless and lazy with tracking runners.

Pre-injury Gomez was still limited as a footballer, but he was so quick and strong he did a decent job alongside prime Virgil. He's never been the same though since that patella tendon injury and it really is time he moved now. I'd lump in Tsimikas with that too.

A team is only as good as its weakest link and when you have players like Tsimikas and Gomez who can't play simple one or two touch football, your whole build up breaks down and quite often you get done on the counterattack. They're the only senior players in our squad who just aren't top level on the ball and it's caused an over reliance on Trent and Robertson for years, which has totally burned them out too. Bradley is the first decent back up full back we've had in years.

I applaud the unconditional support some fans have given Gomez. In fact, I admire your patience to still hope he can get back to what he was. I have to say though that my opinion has never changed in the last 3 or 4 years and I believe he just isn't good enough.


9.) 17 May 2024 08:18:33
So that’s Matip, ibou, kostas, Gomez maybe Trent To get sold and then buy a lcb. Next season is going to be interesting.


10.) 17 May 2024 06:39:53
There is no doubt konate is a good player but neither his body nor mind seem capable to be our first choice CB thru whole season. so should we keep him as 3rd choice or SVB and Quansah can do a job there.

Gomez is needed as he can slot in multiple Positions and is no mug.

TAA to move to midfield and Bradley as starting RB. TAA and Gomez must be enough for RB cover

Tsimikas may be sold and replaced by a new younger player which has higher ceiling.


Endo is good player but should not be first choice for team with our ambition. we will get a new Defence minded midfielder so baj can be deputy. so no place for endo.

Jones, Gravenberch and Elliot are all to similar players and we should keep only 2 of above. Elliot will be staying however one needs to go.

We also needs to decide what to do with Carvalho

In fwd position Salah the legend seems to be having his last match with us.
Jury still out on Nunez but we should keep him as out of option.

Mac, new DM, TAA, Baj, Elliot and Jones/ Gravenbach and Carvalho as our new MF.

We should replace Salah with Soboz.
And sign a younger understudy.

So Diaz, Gapko, Jota, nunez, soboz and new guy will be fwd line.


11.) 17 May 2024 06:41:57
I would keep Gomez, good squad player homegrown and if Slot plays the inverted fb then I think Gomez is well suited to that.


12.) 17 May 2024 07:23:02
Not brain dead at all salah and I do realise he's had a good season. He would bring in good money because of that, would you like a new centre half Salah? im assuming you would, so would you let Konate, Quansah or Virg go ahead of a Gomez who has shown he is not good enough at centrehalf? Then would you play him ahead of Trent/ Bradley at RB? And we can't assume Robertson going to have another stop start season like this one and Beck the best LB in scotland is returning to the club. So where in hell is Gomez, someone we could realistically get 30-35m for going to get games. I love Gomez as much as the next fan, there was a time when I thought he was going to be top notch but his career hasn't turned out that way. We can't stockpile players out of loyalty, let's let the players not good enough to be here move on and give the new manager and Edwards/ hughes etc the funds to get some top quality in. We had. This same attitude with nat phillips and look how that's panned out.


13.) 17 May 2024 08:50:48
Bit much that, Salah, saying someone's brain dead just because they suggest selling Gomez. I agree he's filled in well, this season, covering various positions. He's very much a jack of all trades ( apart from scoring) but a master of none.


14.) 17 May 2024 09:28:17
Scouse John, I wouldn't sell all of them myself, that'd be too much transition. I think next season we should go into it with Robbo, Quansah, Virgil, Konate and Bradley from the current crop as defensive options. Trent I'd move forward as an AM and RW option. Bring Sepp Van den Berg (CB/ RB) back into the fold for sure, then bring Owen Beck (LB/ LM) or Chambers (LB/ CB) into the first team as well depending on who has the better pre-season. I think we only need to sign a new left sided CB such as Pacho who will be comfortable in a fluid backline, given Slot also likes to invert one full back.

I think our main issue defensively this year was tactics and the back ups not being fit enough or good enough. If our starting back 4 first game of next season was Robbo, Virgil, Quansah and Bradley I wouldn't be worried at all. However if I looked at the bench and saw Gomez and Tsimikas as the options to come on because Matip and Konate were injured again, then I would be concerned.

Robbo, Chambers/ Beck, Virgil, Pacho, Quansah, Konate, Van den Berg and Bradley is a decent 8/ 9 options for the defence that would be a huge step up on what we've had this season. That only requires us to move on Matip, Gomez and Tsimikas.


15.) 17 May 2024 10:30:54
I think gomez is over rated, you might as well try the youth, he realistically can only be trusted for a patch every season, his form is never consistent, and he is also injury prone.
He's been liable to plenty of goals this second half of the season which over shadows his good patch in my view.

If his wages weren't high i'd consider leaving him in.
Konate is an odd one, as he looked so good. Think you can only really make a decision once Slot has had time to look at our defence.


16.) 17 May 2024 10:58:08
I think Gomez issue this season is that he is 5th choice centre half, 3rd choice right back and 2nd or 3rd choice left back.

The good thing for him though is this is in accordance with Klopp who is leaving so the new manager might have big plans for him or he might not.

The same as every other player as its technically going to be a clean slate for the majority.


17.) 17 May 2024 11:10:36
I think lots of posters are under estimating Gomez. He's been excellent. If not for the horrific leg injuries he suffered he would currently be out best defender.
If he continues like this season there's no reason he will not fill his potential to become world class for a few seasons.


18.) 17 May 2024 11:51:36
Who are we going to replace all these defenders we are letting go / selling with?


19.) 17 May 2024 12:42:58
Gomez would have been our best defender were it not for his injuries? That is some statement, Walter.
He's not in the top five, for me.


20.) 17 May 2024 13:38:54
Epic statement Rigsby?Better than prime Van Dijk n all. West Derby I would replace Matip and Gomez with a new CB or VDB if he is seen as good enough by the new coach and Tsimikas with Beck or a new leftback. Only Gomez out of the three has played anything near regularly this season.


21.) 17 May 2024 14:54:26
@June,

Would you leave TAA at RB or move him into midfield? If he does move into the mids we have, given the people you’d see leave, are:

RB - Bradley
CB - VVD, Konate, Quansah and either VDB or a new LCB
LB - Robbo and Beck or a new LB

I don’t think that is enough numbers and certainly not enough proven quality to get us near the top 4 next season.


22.) 17 May 2024 20:25:28
I would let him compete for RB with Bradley. Bradleys that good that if Trent wants to play he is going to HAVE to be spot on in his attitude. And the more the both of them push each other to their limits the better for Liverpool.

1.) 17 May 2024 04:02:20
Agree with your first statement but would add a RW and a forward to our requirements.
100% agree on Konate too, don’t rate him and he is unreliable.
Would also agree that Gravenberch, should be sold to fund Koopmeiners deal, and I would like to see us add Varela too as DM.


 

 

25 Apr 2024 11:07:34
Trend seemed like he did not want to defend.
He should be moved to MF and we should give up this fullback moving to midfield tactic. It leaves us exposed at the back specially with Konate on that side.

Salah seems to have his mind setup for an exit in summer.
Nunez will miss a host of chances and we need to live with that unless he can apply himself in training at skill of hiting the target.

We may need to replace salah in summer.
Move Diaz to right, gapko on left and unez/ Jota as CF.

bhav_reds

1.) 25 Apr 2024 11:30:03
I agree about TAA, bhav.
Build a team around him. He could have won us the game last night had we taken those chances and he set us on our way on Sunday. But get him further forward and tighten the back up. He's the best passer in the team and that's why he is being told to do what he is doing but at what cost?
I'd try to get Trent and Mac into a midfield with a quality defensive midfielder. And we've already got a good young right back waiting to come in.


2.) 25 Apr 2024 11:42:59
Definitely, forget positions for a minute, what are trents strengths? Passing, creativity, shooting. Weaknesses? Defending physicality ok let's play him right back. He needs to be given a free role in the middle of the park with a defensive midfielder with a bit of strength.

Decisions like this are on klopp.

Simple now for the rest of this season, play the players not afraid to run at people and make things happen. Gakpo left, Diaz right. Then have Gravenberch and Elliott in midfield as they will run at people too. Danns or Jota up top as they're not wasteful in front of goal.

In defence I honestly don't think it matters as long as Quansah plays because aside from him the rest of them are all shirking responsibility.

Thing is bhav, Trent was shirking challenges left right and centre yesterday, how does a move into midfield help us? Genuine question.


5.) 25 Apr 2024 12:16:49
Trent still needs to develop for me.
He can play beautiful passes but sometimes they’re not the most effective passes. Sometimes you need quick simple passes to transition the play quickly.

He needs to learn that, he’s trying to be too beautiful all the time.


6.) 25 Apr 2024 12:17:23
Trent plays as he's told to play. The whole system adapts to accommodate him being free to do maximum damage. It is tactical.


7.) 25 Apr 2024 12:43:17
Whats Trent’s ambitions?

It’s a rhetorical question as no one actually knows.

But is it to captain his boyhood club or is it to compete for major honours every season.

If it’s the latter and Real come knocking and tell him it’s now or never. What does he do?

Does Gerrard regret not going to Chelsea all those years ago.

He stayed and gets very little respect from the fan base now. Let’s be honest I bet he does regret it.


8.) 25 Apr 2024 14:29:45
“ree to do maximum damage”… but to whom though? As if feels like maximum damage to the team.


9.) 25 Apr 2024 16:03:35
Trent has never been a "defensive" defender! Positionally he's always getting caught out and quite frankly looks like a fish out of water most of the time; left-sided opposition players of quality tie him up in knots. Absolutely no doubt he's brilliant going forward with vision and an ability to put passes on a sixpence SO PLAY HIM IN MIDFIELD!

No thanks.


2.) 08 Apr 2024 00:47:09
Please divest yourself of these ideas.

Good one mate.

Watkins is clinical. amount of chances we create he would have buried a lot of them, he is 2nd top scorer in the league for a reason and would thrive with us. He also puts a hard shift in.

{Ed001's Note - he goes through long periods of being unable to hit the side of a barn mate. He is very hot and cold. Works hard and I do like him a lot, but he can be very wasteful too.}


5.) 08 Apr 2024 08:26:42
Draw a game and start replacing members of the squad.


6.) 08 Apr 2024 09:38:14
@bhav_reds said "Watkins was clinical". Now I know you don't watch Villa for sure. You also said, "he puts a shift in". Oh and Darwin is a lazy donkey? Are you for real? Watkins is a good player BUT he is just as wasteful as Haaland and Darwin (even tho Darwin is the better player, IMO) BUT if you are at Villa and you are English, nobody will care if you go 10 games w/ o scoring. Darwin gets battered cos he passed rather than shot even IF a goal came as a result for him passing it.

Watkins can hit the post 3 times and he will get rave reviews for his overall play cos well, English tax is a REAL thing. Heaven forbid, Darwin does that. It would be news for a week, which it was vs Chelsea. Darwin has more goals and assists in all comps. than Watkins YET Watkins is more clinical. Like I said, take the day off, man.


7.) 08 Apr 2024 16:36:54
That's true Oli but foreigner bias is also a real thing. Wijnaldum was no more talented than Henderson but yet everyone seems to remember Gini as some scintillating Zidane style footballer and remember hendo as just a hard working dude who did the basics well.

Watkins might go a few games without scoring but then mane did that, Salah is currently doing it - but Watkins is the highest scoring English player without being fed 20 chances per game like Salah is.

If you put prime Torres in this team or prime even prime Salah in this team we win 5-0 against United. It's how we can tell Salah is well past his best because he is missing chances that 3 years ago he would have buried. He's also getting outpaced by players who aren't even considered quick. The majority of salahs goals now are pens or box finishes, so we should play to his strengths and move him into the middle as a late Ronaldo style poacher.


8.) 08 Apr 2024 17:05:45
Nevada, I agree, bro BUT the Manes, Salahs and now Darwin used to get/ now get battered for it in the media whereas the likes of Watkins are left untouched and this is more prevalent when you play for England. As for Hendo, he was the target ever since Fergie got bitter and angry cos Hendo had the guts to reject him and join King Kenny at Liverpool and cos he was such a sore, pathetic loseer about it, he attacked Hendo in his book in the most despicable of ways and it got stuck on him. The Fergie part is a fact.

Also, you got to realise that Hendo got the armband from Gerrard and the anti Hendo fans along with the por-Gerrard fans did NOT think Hendo deserved it hence, he was targeted as well. This is just what I have observed over the years so there you go, mate.

TAA, Salah and Alison are world class, thiago, VVD, robbo, mane are top players who were best in their positions.

Thanks Eds, they must be on very bug salaries to make them unaffordable for other clubs. Seems two other mids in line for free transfer till their contract ends.

We price our fringe players very high so not sure if other clubs will see value we place on first team stars, we are willing to let players leave on free or keep them just to have large number of options on bench.

There is no doubt konate is a good player but neither his body nor mind seem capable to be our first choice CB thru whole season. so should we keep him as 3rd choice or SVB and Quansah can do a job there.

Gomez is needed as he can slot in multiple Positions and is no mug.

TAA to move to midfield and Bradley as starting RB. TAA and Gomez must be enough for RB cover

Tsimikas may be sold and replaced by a new younger player which has higher ceiling.


Endo is good player but should not be first choice for team with our ambition. we will get a new Defence minded midfielder so baj can be deputy. so no place for endo.

Jones, Gravenberch and Elliot are all to similar players and we should keep only 2 of above. Elliot will be staying however one needs to go.

We also needs to decide what to do with Carvalho

In fwd position Salah the legend seems to be having his last match with us.
Jury still out on Nunez but we should keep him as out of option.

Mac, new DM, TAA, Baj, Elliot and Jones/ Gravenbach and Carvalho as our new MF.

We should replace Salah with Soboz.
And sign a younger understudy.

So Diaz, Gapko, Jota, nunez, soboz and new guy will be fwd line.

I agree, giving sloppy goals has been our issue. Keeping clean sheet will help us win games.

We missed 5 on 2 and 4 on 2 chances, nothing Klopp can do there.

Only thing I don't know is what is role of Gapko and Gravenbach for that matter.
I hope next managers can make better use of them.

Also Gomez should have been subbed and not robbo. u need players like robbo on pitch.

We don't need Matip replacement as he has barely featured and quansha and Gomez are good covers.
May be decision made on Ramsey if he can be part of squad.

In Middle. thiago to leave. Jury out on Gravenbach but we should give him another year. so don't think we need additions there as well.

Sign one good wide forward if Salah leaves. I would be tempted to sell Gapko. and replace them 2 with Wstkins and Diaby at Villa.
