eds is there any truth in Origi to Inter. I hope so I have been saying his not good enough for the last 2 years now and we should have sold after the champions league win. will go down as a club legend. But he is 26 soon and he needs to be playing I think his had about 15 minutes of Prem football this season and his way down the pecking order now and with Jota back soon I can't see him getting to much more time in the second half of the season.


{Ed002's Note - I think it unlikely.}

1.) 20 Jan 2021 22:52:44
I don't see Origi has much options at LFC. He is not good enough to be our back up. He is not suited to our type of play either. I hope he decides to move on, we cash in and good luck to him.

2.) 21 Jan 2021 00:19:47
I think he is good enough to be a back up if he’s completely on board. I just think he’s a bit sick of being a back up as he knows no matter what he does he won’t be first choice. That has to be demotivating.
Either way a move would be good for all at this point.

3.) 21 Jan 2021 08:27:03
Cant knock a guy who only gets 3 minutes to make an impact each week.

4.) 21 Jan 2021 09:50:33
LancasterRed there's a reason for that because when he has played in the past year especially he's been terrible. The ball bounces off him he doesn't rally look interested anymore maybe he's given up the fight.

5.) 21 Jan 2021 11:45:06
Origi is adequate. You will struggle to get someone who is better to sit on the bench. Also, to sit on the bench without kicking up a fuss is worth its wait in gold.
Tbh, for himself he should probably look to play reg at his age. Whatever he decides I'll support him!

6.) 21 Jan 2021 16:14:11
Origi needs to go for his own sake. I said when Rodgers signed him he’d be poor and he hasn’t changed my opinion. Yes he’s scored some important goals and that is why I wish him luck where ever he ends up, but he’s not the quality we need and I can’t see where he’d fit in a top half of the table prem team? Someone who’ll always give an honest and not red tinted view on the matter is ed25, wonder if he thinks he’s good enough to get in the Everton team? Doubt it to be honest.

7.) 21 Jan 2021 16:54:34
“ can't knock a guy who only gets 3 minutes to make an impact each week”

He gets to make an impact every day at training.
Clearly not doing so and hasn’t done so in a long time.
All he’s doing now is taking up a squad place.

8.) 21 Jan 2021 17:33:19
Pegleg Ed25 will tell you he’s a donkey who would struggle to hold down a place at Accrington Stanley!
The reality is probably somewhere in between. On form he’s a decent backup for a top team but to start every week he needs to go a level down. West Ham, Villa, Everton, Palace etc.

{Ed025's Note - hes not good enough for accrington BP, no seriously he would do a job for the likes of sheffield united or norwich mate but certainly not the mighty blues..

9.) 21 Jan 2021 21:05:22
The reason he only gets 3 minutes is because his not good enough by a very long shot. If he was any good he would get more minutes Klopp does not play him for any other reason Jota has proved that.



15 Jan 2021 08:55:12
Ed002 with our HG issue at the minute it is 17 are the league planning on lowering that. I can see a few of are non HG players leaving in the summer Adrian looks like his all ready dropped down the pecking order Same as Origi and Gini looks half out the door. Come the summer Ed is there any HG players we are looking towards as every player we seem to be connected with seems non HG. Cheers Ed.


{Ed002's Note - The FA want to reduce the number of Non-HG players from 17 to 13 and, typically each year, the Premier League clubs reject this - but only ever by a majority vote and not unanimously. What I do expect to happen moving forward is (a) a continued push to lower the maximum number on non Home Grown players from 17 to 13, (b) an increase in the number of "Club Developed" (having been with the club for a year before turning 19) players which currently only impacts UEFA competition, and (eventually) (c) changing to matchday squad such that a minimum number of Home Grown players must start the game (say four), and a minimum number of Club Developed players (say four again) need to be in the match day squad. There are already rules surrounding this in other countries. The reason why Liverpool have not got a full strength squad in the Champions League is that they only have seven HG players and only two of those (Caoimhin Kelleher and Trent Alexander-Arnold) are Club Developed.

Although Liverpool will look to changes going forward the likes of Ben White, Michael Olise and Ricky-Jade Jones are the only HG ones I can think of at present - and all have interest from other clubs as well.}

1.) 15 Jan 2021 12:50:47
Liverpool will have a difficult time trying to move players on this summer I think a few players are coming to the end of there careers/ at an impasse a need playing time or just need to move on for the sake of there careers
Adrian - thanks for the super cup but is at the back end of his career
Milner - yes I love the guy but he might want to think about playing a season for leeds or staying with us, on big wages
Origi - scored some important goals but doesn't really get a game for us needs to move to play week in week out
Phillips - done well so far this year but will be moved on
Gini - seems to be like the club and player can't agree so should move on
Karuis - need a complete refresh
Grujic - messed about by us needs a fresh start (do think he'll become a top player)
Wilson - messed about by us
Taiwo - never going be able to play for us
Larouci - wanted to leave anyway
Lewis - needs move on for his sake to kick start his career
Arroyo - never going to play for us.

2.) 15 Jan 2021 13:57:42
We badly need some of our current young players to make the grade - trent helps massively and I think there is little chance that Jones won't cut it. But with Elliot, neco Williams, kelleher, cain and Clarkson all hovering around that area where they need to start stepping up or risk fading back, we desperately need at least two of them to come through even if we need to take risks to give them the field time they need to develop. Personally I think kelleher and elliot will be fine as long as we get elliot back next season and let him play, but Clarkson should get a lot more focus than he gets now as someone who could be lead through.

{Ed0666's Note - why do we desperately need two of the kids to come through?

3.) 15 Jan 2021 16:40:12
Because otherwise we're going to end up spending millions replacing players who currently count towards our homegrown quota like milner who play enough that they need replacing but not enough to warrant the price tag that a hg replacement for them would incur. We need to do some future proofing as well as reacting to the problems we have now if we want any chance of actually seeing real benefit of a very talented generation of young players rather than trying to react every season to challenges we knew about for 3 of 4 years but did nothing to prepare for.

4.) 15 Jan 2021 21:54:20
HI Ed02,

Do Curtis Jones and Neco Williams not count as Home Grown. or are they not registered because they are U21?

{Ed002's Note - They are under 21 so.

5.) 15 Jan 2021 22:44:49
hjikle, we can offload some of them on a large transfer fee to Bournemouth once they are promoted back to the EPL.



18 Sep 2020 12:41:44
Ed002 is there any new news on players leaving seen loads of are players linked with moves away have any clubs should any real interest in any players. I see a lot about us hoping to add a wide player if we did I would think Origi's days would be numbered he all ready looks like he has fallen behind Minamino do you know if any clubs have a interest in him.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have agents working on finding their players new clubs but they are struggling to find buyers to bring much needed cash. At present efforts surround asking for loans. It has to be resolved in the next couple of weeks. I am not aware of any approached to Liverpool for DO but his agent will have been speaking with clubs.}

1.) 18 Sep 2020 13:18:56
Cheers Ed002.



12 Aug 2020 10:20:03
morning everybody
Ed002 I see reports last night that Liverpool have not opened talks with Gini yet is that true if so i finf it strange they are leaving it so late.
All so ed I see 2 reports today that Lazio are interested in Origi do you know if there is any truth in that.
thanks again ed002.


{Ed002's Note - I would expect GW to be on holiday at present and his contract does not run out this summer, so I don't see it as a concern. If Klopp pushes to recruit Thiago he might have to be the one sold in any case.

I don't know of Lazio interest but it would likely rest on the departure of Ciro Immobile. They are certainly interested in others.}



08 Aug 2020 10:13:06
eds is there any new updates on clubs looking to sign Harry Wilson, Xherdan Shaqiri and Marko Grujic. They seem the fringe players we would get most for. I see there has been a few clubs linked with Wilson over the last couple of days did not know if its paper talk or real interest. cheers eds.


{Ed002's Note - There is interest in Grujic and Wilson but I am not aware of any approaches for Shaqiri.}

1.) 08 Aug 2020 11:17:02
Hope it's not loan interest, we need the cash .

2.) 08 Aug 2020 13:04:22
cheers ed002.

3.) 08 Aug 2020 13:56:00
The club will probably want in excess of 20 Million for each. In this environment, I highly doubt there will be buyers. Looks like it will be loans again.

4.) 09 Aug 2020 19:33:25
i hope we keep Shaq and that he stars in an injury free season.
Little magician.

5.) 09 Aug 2020 22:51:26
The club apparently are only going to consider permanent moves for grujic and Wilson now and won't let either spend another season on loan. We could get 20mil at least for each which is a possible 40-50mil for 2 players never involved in our squads success. Thiago could be added for half that income while his wages covered by what lallana and lovren both on 100k+ no longer on the books. Shaqiri and karius will likely demand a fee higher than what they cost us also and can help us maybe add a CB and/ or possibly an extra attacker if a player is available at the right price. If we add kostas, thiago, a better younger CB to lovren and an attacker who gives us more than shaqiri has while spending less or similar than the money we get by losing lovren, karius, grujic, Wilson, shaqiri. That group only had lovren and Shaqiri play a part with us and both offered very minimal impact while now ageing also so it would be incredible to strenghten with 3 or 4 players who each give our squad more strength while not costing us any extra investing. Add the likes of Williams, Jones, Elliot, Brewster etc who continue to develop and might become players in coming seasons that prevent us having to spend big money for alternative options. I expect minamino to offer at least 5 times his expenditure while keita can only give us more value for his fee.

We are still looking to be operating very wisely in the market yet all I see is negative and frustrated fans who feel we simply can't improve without splashing out on marquee transfers and keep up with city or Chelsea who have already spent 80mil and 100mil on 2 players respectively. 1 of those we passed up on, another has question marks over his attitude which has seem him overlooked for last few seasons, another is an overpriced defender who looks good on the ball which hides his defensive weaknesses that he always showed in Bournemouths messy backline while the other is a young prospect only who may struggle coming to England without yet having proved anything.

David Silva, willian both top first choice leave for nothing while the likes of kompany and hazard only now being replaced by inferior players. They are not in reality getting stronger that many seem to fear and think that just because they are spending big while we have not been losing anyone crucial that needs us to splash out on that we aren't looking to improve. We might add a world class midfielder for 25mil at a bargain and also a top LB cover for 12mil to give us strenght in 2 positions that never required a player replacement from last season anyway and only gives us added depth. 2 players who combined will cost less than ake or either of Chelsea new boys each. Any 2 players from lovren, shaqiri, grujic or Wilson will bring us in the money for 2 players who offer our team so so much more in quality yet all I see is fans resigned to the idea that we won't be improving our squad this summer when in fact we are actually looking like we can bring in 2 or 3 who would drastically make us better.

{Ed002's Note - This is a very naive standpoint.}

17 Apr 2021 15:47:09
Ed001 what are your thoughts on the front 3 so many fans seem to think mane and firminho are finished. I think there is plenty of life left in all 3 and I know Jota has come in and scored a good few goals this season but I don't think his at there level. It's been a very hard season with injuries and from the WBA game losing Henderson and Fabinho midfield as well as the injury to Thiago in there. Then we had the Jota injury what did not help with giving the front 3 a rest over Christmas and Mane and Salah had C.V. and nobody knows how that has effected them.
A lot fans need to remember the grass is not all ways greener.


{Ed001's Note - I think they have time left in them, but we need to start making changes now, before it gets too late and they are not worth anything to sell.}

1.) 17 Apr 2021 16:34:09
I think we should and will sell one of the front 3 this summer.

2.) 17 Apr 2021 16:53:23
Ed what could be your plans to replace them and by whom?

{Ed001's Note - Jota stepping up and Elliott coming back, then spend the money on midfield.}

3.) 17 Apr 2021 18:59:59
Raphinia from Leeds is a must for me. replacing mane.

{Ed0666's Note - I agree with all my heart that guy is a superstar in the making. Salah, raphinha, Elliot, Bobby and Diogo is good enough for me.

4.) 17 Apr 2021 19:00:26
Big ask for Elliot at 18. Will be a lot of football to cover next season if he is to cover one of the front 3. Despite Bobby and Manes form this season the one thing you can’t fault them for is their availability over the seasons. Pretty sure the 3 of them play 40 plus games a season for us and that includes this season with Jota here. I know we have Minamino and Origi as well but it doesn’t fill me with confidence either of them starting lots of games and us trying to challenge again. Plus we also got the African nations so that could be a loss of 1 or 2 of the 3 depending on who were to go and who were to stay.

I am really looking forward to seeing Elliot get some minutes but I would imagine Klopp might blood him
I’m slowly as he’s done with Jones.

5.) 17 Apr 2021 19:15:04
He won’t come cheap eds but like u I think he is going to be a star and his price will only exceed 👍fingers crossed we pull it off.

6.) 17 Apr 2021 19:18:40
If we did sell one of the front 3 do you think we would have a realistic Chance at signing Raphinha? I'd a million percent prefer him over Demebele from Barca.

7.) 17 Apr 2021 19:35:43
Raphina has less goals and assists than both Bobby and Mane this season in the league. Yes we could argue that Leeds don’t score as many goals as us but they have only scored 4 less goals in the league and it’s not like they are an ultra defensive side.

Lots of people said the other day no thanks to Kane but they would be happy with a player who has 6 goals and 6 assists which are lower than the players we are trying to ship out the door.

For me in an ideal world a player like that comes in to replace Origi and challlenge the front 4 for a starting place. Not replaces them.

The one thing he has on his side though is age. And at 24 he is young.

8.) 17 Apr 2021 19:44:34
Raphinia is a very good player no doubt. But he is another who is average in front of goal. If we sign a forward the number one priority is that the player can score goals. We are a one man scoring side atm and even Salah misses too many.

{Ed0666's Note - Any names you care to put forward Mark?

9.) 18 Apr 2021 11:25:41
I would have liked chiesa but can't see it after he signed for Juve.

10.) 18 Apr 2021 12:45:32
I would take Raphinha today if he was available. Absolute baller. As for Elliott, we need to b careful cos regardless of his talent, he is still a kid that has to be nurtured for this level we currently play at.



12 Apr 2021 21:47:57
Ed001 I mentioned Alan Hansen on the post for best captain, how good would he have in today's game with the pitches like they are now. As you said you wanted to be him I think everybody that played cb as a kid in the 80s wanted to be him bring the ball out. Virgil reminds me of him when his on the top of his game because he makes it look effortless but Virgil physical attributes help with that where with Hansen it was just his reading of the game.


{Ed001's Note - Hansen is probably the best of all time, his reading of the game was exceptional and he was quick too.}

1.) 12 Apr 2021 22:05:16
No coincidence when he retired we went downhill fast. 8 league titles in 14 odd seasons says it all. Hope he’s keeping well. Legend.

2.) 13 Apr 2021 01:14:14
Best Liverpool defender of all time or best of all time full stop Ed?



10 Apr 2021 20:30:02
Ed001 how much do you think it has been Klopp's team selection as much as injuries this season. Again today the challenge by gini just before there goal was awful, I don't blame him I don't think to many players in his position are going to give 100% because an injury like Virgil for Gini and he will have nowhere to go people can say he is still under contract and should give his all but it would be at the back of everybody mind and he did want to stay but they could not agree with the contract. It does go to show Ed how much Emre Can gave in his last year of his contract. I hope the club never leave them selfs in this position with a first team player again.


{Ed001's Note - it is no excuse, Gini should have done more. He should be trying to show how good he is to clubs who might be interested in signing him.}

1.) 10 Apr 2021 21:08:21
Klopps team selections have been questionable all season and he definitely needs to shoulder some of the blame for the position that we’re in, but I love the bloke! It’s been a funny season, one I haven’t enjoyed. Hopefully next season will be different.

2.) 10 Apr 2021 21:05:34
I can’t think of 2 many players that have though Ed Spurs had the same with Ericsson last season. I do think it is poor planning by clubs letting players get into that position.

{Ed001's Note - Eriksen had been poor for years, basically his whole career he had not exactly tried off the ball and certainly didn't go in for the physical stuff, so it was nothing to do with his contract.}

3.) 10 Apr 2021 21:53:16
Thiago turns 30 tomorrow, given a 4 years contract and on top dollar I think?
That was one bizarre decision.

4.) 10 Apr 2021 22:13:24
If Wijnaldum has only been offered a one or two years contract on less money than Thiago, after playing most of the games over the past few seasons, it would be enough to make anyone racked off.
If we add Elliott to the squad, that’s another piano player.
I’m honestly starting to get nervous now, are we trying to metamorphose into Arsenal circa 2011?

5.) 10 Apr 2021 22:14:34
You only have to look at Kroos and Modric ruining us last Tuesday to know that players like Thiago are not finished at 30 years old. They age like a fine wine. Alonso at 32-34 played the best football of his career.

6.) 10 Apr 2021 23:33:48
I’m pretty sure the club are going to be trying to tie Salah, Vvd and Hendo to new top dollar contracts soon and they will all be around the 29/ 30 mark. Plus Milner is our oldest and rumoured 6th highest paid player.

7.) 10 Apr 2021 23:37:10
Thiago will be able to play well into his 30s.

8.) 11 Apr 2021 07:33:41
I’m a bit bored of people writing players off at 30.

Players who take great care of themselves can maintain top levels until at least 32 and up to 34.

I think it’s pretty poor that after 4 fantastic years from Sadio, one poor one during C.V. and no rest, most are ready to flog him and are saying he’s finished.

Rafa thought that Xabi should go after one poor year and we all remember how that turned out.

I could understand if the club decided to cash in on him if a decent offer comes in, but I do think he’s getting a serious lack of respect on these pages at the moment.

Had he still had a good season, but he decided it was time to move - you’d all be calling him a Judas and saying you only want players at the club who want to be here.

Double standards at its finest as usual.

9.) 11 Apr 2021 08:06:43
Shaq, haven’t you heard? VVD turns 30 this year so it is time to bin him as well.

10.) 11 Apr 2021 08:29:48
OP regarding Gini, I fully agree that he was poor and seemingly pulled out of the challenge on the Villa goal. Now if any player is acting the way you suggest Gini could be acting then, that is a poor mentality and said player should b benched or ask no to be picked, IMO. Gini is a pro and it is his job to get ready to play whenever called upon.

I also fully agree with you regarding Emre Can. I don’t think he got or gets the credit for all he did for us in his final years at the club. In the 16/ 17 season when we were in full battle for top 4 vs Arsenal, Emre Can played the final 7 games with a calf injury and helped us to top 4 with the goal of the season at Watford.

In the derby, he was almost sent to hospital due to dreadful challenges from Barkley and Ashley Williams at Anfield yet finished the game. In his final season in 17/ 18, Can played the City game (4-3) with a high fever and played lights out. Joined Juve afterwards. Still love him as a player.

11.) 11 Apr 2021 09:23:52
I agree on Can having a good mentality and putting the team first but he just wasn’t good enough.

12.) 11 Apr 2021 10:54:35
Wijnaldum was the only player to blame for Villa’s goal yesterday because of his half hearted tackle. He was the only player to blame if we ignore the fact Milner played a poor ball to Bobby. Then Bobby made the first half hearted tackle. The it was Wiji’s turn. Kabak and Phillips then allowed Watkins through the middle and didn’t close him down quick enough and then Allison let the shot go through him when 9 times out of 10 he would or should have saved it. But other than that Wiji was at fault. You only have to look at who Milner moaned at as soon as the ball went in and it wasn’t Wiji.

13.) 11 Apr 2021 12:18:56
JK23, this is not the first time Gini has literally stopped running when a player wins the ball right in front of him. Oh and on Bobbie, Konsa got there quicker than him so that is just good defending. I know Bobbie can do nothing right in your eyes anymore BUT you cannot ask him to track back 20 yards do Gini’s job for him. Oh, you just did.

And even if Bobbie does not get to the ball or loses it, isn't it the person closest to the opposition player’s job to body him and put him under pressure or again, should Bobbie track back 20 yards to do that as well?

IMO, I blame Gini cos he was the closest to Douglas Luis when he won the ball. He then puts in a weak challenge and literally stopped chasing him as Luis laid it on to MacGinn. Gini was not arsed enuff to track back and body-check Luis to put him off. He literally started walking BUT I see how hard you worked to rope Bobbie into it tho. Ain’t buying it, bro.



06 Apr 2021 22:59:05
Ed001 what do you think about Jota playing upfront instead of Bobby. Am glad Jota is back to give Bobby a rest. but it's not something Bobby is renowned for but he gives us a physical presence as well as holding the ball up with his clever play.


{Ed001's Note - it should have been one of Mane or Salah dropping out imo. Though it has to be said Jota was abysmal last night, so maybe it was him who should have missed out and come on as a sub.}

1.) 07 Apr 2021 07:04:46
Mane has been stinking the place out of it since before Christmas ed001 and still starts most games. Everyone can understand the reasoning behind Jota starting as he has been in good goal scoring form. Same with robbo, has been rubbish these past few months but still starts every game. Is tsimikis so bad that he can't come in. And don't get me started on gini the ghost.

{Ed001's Note - the difference is Robbo and Mane are still working hard, Jota stood and watched Kroos while he controlled the ball and looked around for a few seconds before playing the pass for the first goal. Wijnaldum and Keita the same, they were just watching players run off them into the space the full-backs had left. No attempt to do anything to stop the run or go with the runner, just stood around and watched. If those three had worked like Robbo and Mane, we wouldn't have struggled so badly, even if they still played badly. There is never an excuse for not working hard. Never.} Become a Patron!

2.) 07 Apr 2021 08:18:15
Wijnaldum should be nowhere near the captains armband, doesn't appear to have the stomach for it!

3.) 07 Apr 2021 08:38:38
Spot on. Do people now see why Bobbie plays all these big games in the CL away from home? People getting all twisted and only focusing on goals and all that, our system is much bigger than that. Had Bobbie been on the pitch, Kroos does not have the time to look up, point to Vinicius in which direction he should run and then ping it to him. Bobbie would have been on top of him or would have been earmarked to target him, which according to ED01's review of the Arsenal game, Bobbie targeted Partey and suffocated him.

4.) 07 Apr 2021 08:38:59
Mane though he can’t even do the basics at the moment, control, pass or shoot. He keeps falling over his own feet and if he fell in a barrel of t1ts he would come out sucking his thumb.

{Ed001's Note - but if Jota had put in the effort he and Salah made in closing down, they don't score their first goal....}

5.) 07 Apr 2021 08:59:01
I am not disagreeing the lack of effort can never be excused. Klopp sent the team out to press them and no one did it fully. Klopp must be devastated by the lack of effort.

{Ed001's Note - I am just saying, it is all very well jumping on Mane, but at least the lad is trying, he just isn't playing well, so deserves our support. The worry is that some players aren't. If you can't get up and put effort in for a game against Real Madrid in the Champions League, when can you?

I do wonder why Mane was picked, when woefully out of form, but Firmino was dropped after a decent game at the weekend. It was a very odd decision.} Become a Patron!

6.) 07 Apr 2021 09:22:46
I am jumping on them all. Bigger problems in the world so chins up.

7.) 07 Apr 2021 09:40:28
That game was screaming for Bobbie Firmino from minute one BUT I guess his detractors where jumping for joy that he was benched after he played well at the weekend. Jota scores goals yes BUT there is more to our system to our forwards than just scoring goals. Jota was poor in the press and effort BUT who cares about that cos he must be better than Bobbie cos he scores goals whereas the very things required yesterday, Bobbie is the best at. If anyone should have been dropped, it should have been Mane, IMO.

8.) 07 Apr 2021 09:46:36
If Bobby had played last night we would have won. You only have to look at the games he's played this season. Villa, WBA, Newcastle, Burnley, Southampton, Brighton, Man City, Leicester and Chelsea all got lucky against us despite Bobby playing.

JK23, read the post again. Nowhere did I say we would have won had Bobbie played. I just said he would have been able to do the things the other players were too timid to do, which IMO, are just as essential as scoring goals in a Klopp system clearly. Learn to read the comments before you post your dry and sarcastic responses as that seems to be a theme lately.

Oli you should read my post again. At no point did i mention you. You have jumped to that conclusion yourself. If anything i try not to engage with you on here as its hard to engage with someone who thinks they know best about everything and are never wrong.

ed1 - just thinking about your comment about mane's effort. that is so true, he is out there putting a shift in at least. Do we even concede goals coming down our left flank?

{Ed001's Note - very rarely because he works back so well. Even when not playing well he does have a positive effect for the team, like Salah.}

JK all of those teams you’ve mentioned say back against us so there’s not as much need to press from the front as we have most of the ball and they try to hit us on the break.
Against the better teams who play out from the back Bobby is essential and last night proved it. Kroos just dropped in and had the freedom of Spain to pick his spot time and time again.

Becker’s so Bobby should only start the games then where teams don’t sit deep. So this season he would have started against City twice and Real. I suppose that shows how essential he actually is.

Ed001 Fabinho was outstanding in midfield last night Thiago looked loads better with him in there as well. I was hoping Ox would have started yesterday but I thought Milner did well in there to but I do think Father Time is starting to catch up with him . I can't wait to see fabs Thiago and hendo in there together but I have a feeling that Klopp will drop fabs back when hendo is fit and play Gini in there but I hope not because I much more prefer hendo higher up pressing as he is nowhere near Fabs level playing in front of the back 4 but I only think Fernandinho is in the league.


{Ed001's Note - I doubt Fabs will play in defence again this season if Klopp can help it.}

1.) 04 Apr 2021 16:34:56
I hope so Ed but a big champions league game I can see fabs dropping back gini in midfield with hendo and Thiago and Phillips being the man to miss out.

2.) 04 Apr 2021 18:53:49
Doubt it. kabak and Phillips until the big boys are back.

ed002 would you have any clue on this what value would you put on Xherdan Shaqiri Divock Origi, Harry Wilson and Takumi Minamino. and what would you think the club will put on them.


{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what the club will value the players at, but none are worth a great deal but might just raise enough money to pay off the debt taken on last summer on Jota and Thiago.

Ed001 I have not seen enough of Sancho but when I have seen him he has not pulled any trees up. His stats are really good though am not sure haaland playing upfront helps him every time I see him his work rate is not the best and Dortmund seem to be a worse side with him it.


{Ed001's Note - I am not a big fan, never impressed me when I have seen him and I don't understand the hype. Now Bellingham I would move heaven and earth to get him, he is the real deal I think.}

Jordz nobody knows what Klopp said to him and after how he and the rest of Arsenal played I would not want him for £40m and not seen him doing anything special for Arsenal up to now. It’s the same with all that stuff last summer with Timo when it seemed to be him that was connecting him self with us Utd and then ended up at Chelsea and we missed a bullet there.

Ed002 I don’t get the abuse you getting for pointing out facts but even if they are just your opinions the abuse is out of order we are all entitled to our own opinions. I don’t get the problem about the super league how many times have teams outside the big 6 got into the champions league since it started nearly 30 years ago I can just think of Everton once and Leicester once. So it’s nothing new any way just more teams in it. And am sure the premier league would benefit as well with the top side earning more money bringing better players in and that would help better tv deals in the long run.


{Ed002's Note - Thanks - but the Premier League would take legal action to kick the clubs out.}

ed077 to be fair to Brewster's it was an awful move for the lad never had a run of starts for Sheff Utd. Last season when everybody seemed to think Chris Wilder was the best thing since sliced bread they scored 39 goals in the league and this season up to now only 17. Brewster has only 47 minutes per game this season with only 10 starts. I don't think Wilder has given him much of a chance Henry did not score in his first 8 games for that great Arsenal side. It was a shame that Brewster never moved to Brighton I think both could have had a lot better seasons.


{Ed077's Note - "natural finisher" is struggling to get into to a team struggling for goals and people moan about Klopp not keeping him and playing him. If he isnt ready yet to contribute for a bottom half team in PL then how much of an impact would he have had for the defending champions.

And dont forget he did fetch a fair chunk of money that helped bring in the likes of Jota, Thiago, etc..}

Ed I think he has improved vastly as the season as gone one thing I have seen him improve on through the season is not taking an extra touch when not needed. That is one thing I think Neco Williams needs to improve on and only game time helps these young players. Unless Jones is going to get a good amount of game time next season I hope he gets a loan where he will same for Williams. But I hope Jones takes Gini place in the squad and would love a defensive midfielder to come in to give Fabinho a rest rather than Henderson dropping back there think we have missed him so badly in the middle of the park and I think from the WBA game when he dropped back that is where are season went so badly wrong.


{Ed001's Note - that's something I agree with you on, we need someone to cover/push Fabinho most of all.}

Well ed0666 this is the 3rd game that Thiago does not start. I bet if you asked 100 football pundits 99 would have had Thiago in the starting lineup and the same for fans.


{Ed0666's Note - only one of those pundits would have been right then mate 😂

ed001 I had high hopes for him when we signed him but I can't see him doing any good at the club now. I think best for all parties if we could sell him in the summer and let the lad settle down somewhere he is going to get game time.


{Ed001's Note - maybe, but I think it is a mistake to just throw him away because he can't settle, we should be looking to figure out how to help him settle so we can do more for future players.}
