Ed:002 are we still after another midfielder and centre back or has the cost of this unexpected transfer changed things?

kingkenny7

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool will need to add another midfield player but would need to make space for a CB.}

ED:002 apologies if this has already been covered but do you know of any bid for Perr Schuurs?

whilst i am here i will take the opportunity to thank you for all the information you have provided, i don't use twitter so your knowledge is truly appreciated.

I hope all is well with you and all your loved ones.

Have a great summer.

kingkenny7

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any acceptable bid and I have explained before what would be required.}


1.) 05 Jul 2023 06:52:14
Hi Ed2. A quick question. You say there hasn't been an acceptable bid, does that indicate that we have actually made a bid?

Lastly, it seems there were quite a few idiots on here yesterday spouting abuse/ rubbish. I apologise on their behalf. I don't get it. They must be kids or simply haven't learnt the notion of manners. Thanks for all your replies and information. That goes for you and all the eds on here. Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Perr Schuurs (CB) Only signed from Ajax last summer and an enquiry from Spurs was met with a not for sale - but a €40m offer would make them listen. I doubt any club would value him at half that but Manchester United, and ten Hag knows him well, and Liverpool have sent scouts. Napoli offer an option as they have him on their lengthy Kim replacement list. Informal offers from Napoli and Liverpool have been turned away. Crystal Palace are concerned that they will lose Marc Guehi and have asked for talks with the club.}

Ed002: Is there any truth in the Werner from chelsea Rumour?

I personally don't expect there to be anything in this, but any info you have would be appreciated.

Thanks for all you do across all the sites.

kingkenny7

{Ed002's Note - Timo Werner (F/LW) Bayern Munich discussed the player with Chelsea and were open to a possible part exchange but Chelsea were not interested in the player offered. Borussia Dortmund were keen to add Werner and Chelsea are open to letting him go, but interest may be waning. Juventus has declared an interest during a recent meeting with Chelsea as they fear the loss of Dejan Kulusevski - and that discussion may well lead to a part exchange being proposed. Barcelona and Atletico have enquired after his availability. Will leave if the right offer arrives. I am not aware of any approach by Liverpool.


1.) 25 Jun 2022 12:24:44
Thank god Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - Klopp has his phone number of course.}


2.) 25 Jun 2022 12:25:21
To quote Dave Bassett, “He couldn’t hit a cow’s a#se with a banjo”.


3.) 25 Jun 2022 13:21:09
I actually think Werner would be some player under Klopp. I don't think for a second it'll happen but there is a reason he was interested all those moons back.


4.) 25 Jun 2022 15:51:57
Hope you’re not suggesting that all Klopp has to do is “Tap” in Werner’s number Ed002? ?.


5.) 25 Jun 2022 17:15:08
Agreed WYred he could be Torres in reverse, awful at chelsea yet good in a reds shirt.

I still remember how excited most of us were when we thought he was nailed on to join us.

If Klopp was to dial the number i don't think he would get reported for tapping up on this occasion!

{Ed0666's Note - I agree with you & WYRred the only difference between a heralded Werner and a ridiculed Werner is hitting the post a tonne of times, wretched luck and composure in front of goal which was largely due to the lack of confidence. There is a real player in there and like you guys said I think klopp could really harness and nurture that. For me Werner would have been a cheaper alternative to Nunez and maybe even a safer one. I’m ready for the abuse. ?


6.) 25 Jun 2022 17:35:28
I’m a Chelsea fan but I will absolutely concur with those who said that a lot of his failings are simply a matter of failings on the clubs side. He played acceptably under a terrible manager (Lampard) when he was signed. Then Tuchel came in and introduced a system that isn’t at all suited to his strengths. This and his poor luck shattered his confidence and the Lukaku signing was the nail in his coffin. I fully well expect him to go to another team and light it up just to make the imbeciles who slag him off look like the muppets that they are.


7.) 25 Jun 2022 17:37:05
Hopefully Nunez is better than Werner. Won't our next forward purchase be a replacement for Salah i. e. a scoring winger who can cut in and find the spaces Nunez leaves when he comes wide or into the #10 spot.


8.) 25 Jun 2022 17:18:35
Wasn't Werner swerved because he's not great in tight spaces/ bus parking situations? He is not suited to the EPL and needs to goto a slower, less physical league asap.

{Ed002's Note - No, that wasn’t it.}


9.) 25 Jun 2022 18:23:55
I’d take Werner for a reasonable price. Wasn’t it something to do with hearing/ crowd noise etc not tight spaces?

{Ed002's Note - No.}


10.) 25 Jun 2022 19:05:18
I think Werner would be great under Klopp. However we don’t need him now with Diaz and Nunez capable of playing on the left and Jota, Bobby and Nunez capable of playing through the middle. It’s a left sided attacker we need.


11.) 25 Jun 2022 19:05:36
Right sided I meant to say!


12.) 25 Jun 2022 19:22:49
Taki, Mane and Div replaced with Nunez doesn't add up. When is Gakpo getting announced?


13.) 25 Jun 2022 19:30:19
I try and watch as much football as possible, even if it’s not Liverpool. Watched a lot of Chelsea games over the last two years and we shouldn’t go anywhere near him. Seems like a nice lad and in a way feel sorry for him at times. But he simply cannot grasp the offside line and makes all the wrong decisions most of the time. Also he finishing is below par, which was surprising when you compare him to the Werner of Red Bull. What he does have is pace but pace without football intelligence is useless. Just have to look no further than a certain Mr. Adama Traoré for an example of that.


14.) 25 Jun 2022 20:32:44
Werner didn't happen because we wanted extended payment terms, and Chelsea was able to pay the £47 Million upfront. That's why and how we got Jota a couple of months later in the summer of 2020; Wolves gave us extended payment terms on the
£41 Million (plus add-ons) .


15.) 25 Jun 2022 21:26:38
@Spaceman, you forgot Diaz and Carvalho. Nunez, Diaz and Carvalho have replaced Mane, Taki and Div.


16.) 26 Jun 2022 10:35:23
Taki and Div hardly needed replacing with the amount of minutes they played in the league. Cup games I see Gordon playing the minutes Taki did in the early cup rounds. With Bobby Jota as the main back ups to are forwards no AFCON this season so we won’t be losing 2 of are main forwards less minutes to go around it all so looks as if Ox is staying for at least the last year of his contract we seemed stacked with players. For me if we do sign anybody else this window we need to get rid of players first that are not going to play to many minutes. Like if we do sign another midfielder Naby and Ox need to go otherwise we are just going to be blocking Elliott and Carvalho’s minutes.


17.) 26 Jun 2022 12:28:51
Is it possible we might have injuries Grino? That might impact game time.


18.) 26 Jun 2022 18:09:30
I'd happily swap Jota for Werner - Don't shoot me - Jota makes me feel like his ability is capped. Whereas Timo is a Kinder Surprise. Just presently without the paper instructions inside!


 

 

17 Jun 2022 17:46:21
Ed002: just a friendly reminder i posted yesterday as regards to who you think the next batch of Youngsters worth watching will be and also the situation at Derby County, any info you could provide would be much appreciated.

kingkenny7

{Ed002's Note - I have not had the time to do this yet - another gentle reminder on Monday or Tuesday would be great.}


 

 

16 Jun 2022 10:27:25
Ed002: If you have the time would you be so kind as to let us know who in your opinion are the next batch of highly rated footballers to look out for in the coming years.

Also i Know its not a Liverpool matter but how do you see the situation at Derby County panning out? i only ask as you have often said there are too many football clubs already and as we are seeing more and more, a lot of them are struggling fiancially.

I hope you and your loved ones are keeping well.

kingkenny7

{Ed002's Note - Could you please remind me tomorrow - I will try and think about it.}

Ed:001 what are your thoughts for Sunday's final, and bearing in mind the last 2 went to penalty's, what if anything would you do different this time around?

The 4-1 game albeit it was at anfield should be the blue print imo, but I do understand that each game is different.

kingkenny7

{Ed001's Note - I just think we have to make sure to take the game to them. They can't be allowed to build confidence. Get at them and give them no time to breath, treat it like a league match and go full intensity.}


1.) 23 Feb 2024 14:45:14
Totally agree let’s overwhelm them
Up the pool.


2.) 23 Feb 2024 15:11:01
"I just think we have to make sure to take the game to them. "

My sentiments, exactly. Let's go at them like we did at Anfield from the off.


3.) 23 Feb 2024 16:43:05
Very hard to go full intensity on that Wembley pitch.


4.) 23 Feb 2024 17:14:48
It has to be full intensity with the quality we have missing.


5.) 23 Feb 2024 18:58:03
@Markp, can you explain what you mean? I honestly don’t understand what you are saying. Intensity is a mental thing, an approach to a situation. I’ve already seen VVD’s comments about being very, very proud to be leading the team out at Wembley so, so far, it seems the motivation isn’t going to be a problem for him.


6.) 23 Feb 2024 19:25:15
You obviously won’t be able to press them all over the pitch like we often do at home. Klopp talks about intensity when he talks about his full throttle game. We will just have to be selective when we press and when we try to control the game. The mentality can’t be questioned as was seen v Luton. I.


7.) 23 Feb 2024 20:05:57
Play like we did first half against Man City in the FA Cup semi a few years ago. I think that’s the best we’ve played at Wembley under Jurgan
We’re not usually ourselves in finals and let chunks of the game pass us by. That’s what I’d try to avoid this time around, try to really use the energy of Bradley/ Robbo.


8.) 23 Feb 2024 20:30:29
We don’t usually keep the ball well enough in the finals hopefully that will change.


9.) 24 Feb 2024 01:19:15
To be honest I think it’s pretty damned inconvenient that the opposition teams raise their game in finals. I know it’s probably a case of them thinking that they might as well give it a good crack seeing as how it’s a final and probably their biggest game of the season, but it’s a bit cheeky eh? Trying to put us off our game - it’s totally unacceptable.


10.) 24 Feb 2024 08:58:45
Mark, we played City off the park in the FA Cup semi final vs City in '21/ 22 at Wembley in the first 60 mins and essentially ended the game in the first half with 3 goals, one of which Mane pressed the GK into scoring. You can even add parts of the FA Cup final vs Chelsea to the mix so the intensity narrative on the Wembley pitch does not hold water esp. at Wembley, my guy.

Also regarding us not keeping the ball in finals again, I don't know what that means. We are not a possession team basically even tho we can keep the ball well in games whenever required. We keep the ball when we have to. We are fundamentally a pressing team and we press instinctively whenever the situation warrants it. Again, I don't get your point here, tbh.


11.) 24 Feb 2024 11:43:50
It means not wasting the ball. Actually passing it to a team mate. We have been very wasteful in recent finals. Maybe 4 years ago for half a game we were good but that’s not our norm in a final.
Hopefully today we will play to our potential.


12.) 24 Feb 2024 21:01:19
@Mark, games that have happened in the past up to and including the Luton game have no direct bearing on what will happen in the next game. Different opponent, different challenge - tactics, set-up, focus on opponents strengths and weaknesses. Of course if we have players in top form that usually has a bearing on team selection but equally we may bring players in to combat specific perceived threats from opposition players or set-up.

It’s probably also worth bearing in mind that finals are special occasions, that they are must win and bring different pressures. There’s an element of ‘not losing’ rather than ‘going all out to win’. That’s what happened in the Chelsea finals a couple of years ago. Hopefully, as has been said, we try and clear our minds and just get stuck into them. If we do we win.


 

 

18 Feb 2024 01:00:08
What a finish by Nunez!

Obviously the ever increasing injury pile up is not ideal but we have shown time and time again this season, we can overcome major challenges.

Mo's return could have not have come at a better time and it looks like Gakpo will have a bigger part to play going forward, sadly due to jota's injury.

Let the focus from elsewhere be on city and Arsenal, all we need to do is keep picking up the 3pts and Arsenal winning 100-0 will not make a blind bit of difference.

A special mention to Connor Bradley who picked up exactly where he left off, his family will surely be proud of him today.

next up Luton town and hopefully 3pts closer to title number 20.

kingkenny7

1.) 18 Feb 2024 06:40:20
@ kingkenny7, i disagree with the part on arsenal winning 100-0. Goal difference plays a part. Its so tight at top. If City win game in hand, they are 1 pt behind.


2.) 18 Feb 2024 06:52:00
Leek, you surely win the trophy for the most nonsense ever posted. Congratulations.


3.) 18 Feb 2024 08:23:53
Pretty sure if we win every game the arsenal literally could every game 100-0 then it wouldn’t matter.


4.) 18 Feb 2024 08:45:33
Nunez finish was world class but what a header from Jota to set it up. Jota and Nunez have really stepped up in Mo’s absence so hopefully Jota’s injury isn’t too bad.

The whole starting 11 were excellent yesterday and also a big chuck up to Grav and Gakpo who probably will go unnoticed on their performances.

Mo needs no words.


5.) 18 Feb 2024 09:21:38
@leek: lfc are currently 2 pts clear at the top, if lfc keep winning they will remain 2 pts clear, there will be nothing Arsenal or city can do about it.

Chasing cricket scores? been there before it did not turn out well.

Put Simply 13 1-0 wins and title number 20 is ours.


6.) 18 Feb 2024 10:23:16
@Lee, you seem desperate for Arsenal to overtake us and win the League. Perhaps you are on the wrong forum mate.


7.) 18 Feb 2024 15:13:52
"If City win game in hand, they are 1 pt behind. "

And what has goal diff. got to do with a darn thing should all 3 teams win all their games till the end of the season? Leek, you're doing too much here and you're not even good at being negative either cos your comments don't even make sense. Take a day off, man.


 

 

07 Nov 2023 22:46:19
I miss the heavy metal football!

Yes most games my blood pressure went through the roof, but by god it was exciting!

If we had played Luton like we used to play, we would have blown them away in the first 20 minutes.

I cannot understand why we moved away from the style that won us the title.

With the talent we have in the side, we should be right in Man city's face.

I never thought I would describe a team managed by Klopp as boring but when this possession based style does not work, that's exactly what it is to me.

I know we are only 3pts behind City but no matter which way we look at it, we dropped 2pts on Sunday.

Lastly the way Luis Diaz has conducted himself during this horrific time is a credit to his parents and I hope he is reunited with them soon.

kingkenny7

1.) 08 Nov 2023 09:26:24
I know what you mean KK but sometimes when we look back we only remember the good things.

In reality we used to struggle to break down teams that did exactly what Luton did on Sunday. For the heavy metal counter pressing to work the opposition need to have some of the ball. When a team sets up to allow you to have possession in front of them you have to be able to move the ball quickly from side to side to create gaps to play through.

We just didn’t move the ball quickly enough and with not enough width in our game. Then we started to try to force it and chose the wrong options.

The possession style and even the inverted full back will work for us but in games like that we need to show more urgency. There’s absolutely no point in getting Trent on the ball more in the middle when there are no spaces for him to pass in to. You need to put the work in the open the spaces first.


2.) 08 Nov 2023 10:00:24
The old system was all about pass to full backs and cross. teams then started to nullify our full backs and we litreally ran out of ideas.
To play heavy metal counter atatcking football teams need to come to us which rarely happens. what should klopp do?


3.) 08 Nov 2023 15:11:29
Remember we completely ran out of steam the last season we played with the Gegenpress and everyone on here was shouting for Klopp to develop a Plan B?


4.) 08 Nov 2023 16:28:02
KK7, we can't play that way anymore and expect to win things. Remember we tried doing that and won nothing cos our legs were gone in 17/ 18? SO why would we do that now when moving away from that won us things? Look, I miss it too BUT we ain't Spurs who would rather play great football and win nothing.

LFC wins things WHILE playing the best football we can which we have succeeded in doing thru out Klopp's time here. For me, Im good with things right now and not playing the kamikaze footie that won us nothing. I can always go on youtube and watch us play the heavy metal football. If Im bored or feeling nostalgic.


5.) 08 Nov 2023 17:36:45
Thanks for the replies I can see where everybody is coming from.

I just feel we are playing with the handbrake on whereas we have the talent to be blowing teams away.

Lets not forget we have had a major upgrade in defence and goalkeeper, so I feel we can afford to take the risks.

Klopp for me has to stop shoehorning players into roles they are not comfortable in, play Endo in the 6 and return
Mac Allister into the role he was bought for.

I would hate for Klopp's reign to end with only 1 pl title because he allowed stubbornness to guide him.

Every team trying to play like Man city is not healthy, the PL is in danger of fast becoming a 1 team league, where the best we can hope for is to finish 2nd a win a domestic cup.


6.) 08 Nov 2023 19:02:45
KK7, the worst thing is that City don't even play this way or at least not anymore cos even Peps saw it was not working and binned it, per Ed01's info. Klopp needs to change now.


7.) 08 Nov 2023 19:26:18
Shouldn't we have the capability of several styles of play?


8.) 08 Nov 2023 20:49:22
But maybe Macalister was bought to play the 6 KK with Endo bought as back up?

It looks to me that we are moving away from a DM in its normal sense and he wants more of a deep lying playmaker. Hence signing Thiago.

Let’s see how the season goes we may sign Andre in January and release Mac further forward. The problem I can see with that is that I don’t think Mac is as good as Szoboslai, Gravenberch or Curtis Jones in the more advanced positions.

He may end up a squad player if we go down that route.


9.) 08 Nov 2023 22:13:07
Mac the World Cup winner isn’t as good as the 2 non international players in Grav and Jones. Not sure anyone else would agree with you.


 

 

01 Oct 2023 23:07:36
Does anybody know how serious the injury is to gakpo yet?

I only hope Nunez will be available for the next game as with Jota being suspended and Gakpo injured our front 5 becomes 3.

The suspension to Curtis jones gives either Gravenberch or Endo a chance to get a run of games.
Personally I think its time we played Endo in the role we bought him for.

All I will say about yesterday is another top class assist from Salah and arguably Diaz's best ever Liverpool goal was criminally ruled out for a reason so bizarre it beggars belief.

It cannot be swept under the carpet, the PGMOL is not currently fit for purpose and ALL football fans have the right to demand better as that is what they were promised when VAR was introduced.

I can accept a defeat when it occurs after both sides are given a level playing field, what all football fans are currently getting for the money they are shelling out is frankly unacceptable.

How has it ever got to this stage?

kingkenny7

1.) 01 Oct 2023 23:53:13
Surely Jones’s red will be rescinded? Both players feet were low, both got the ball, both were stretching. The contact was purely accidental and there was literally nothing Curtis could do to prevent it.


2.) 02 Oct 2023 00:16:00
Gakpo out for a few weeks, out of internationals.


3.) 02 Oct 2023 00:40:54
I don't think Jones's red will be rescinded. He went over the ball and it was dangerous. I'm not sure if intent is a consideration but I could be wrong.


4.) 02 Oct 2023 01:42:19
They will do mri after 2 days usually so that the inflammation decreases a little. so probably today or tomorrow we will know.


5.) 02 Oct 2023 01:48:54
Intent isn’t a consideration.
I didn’t think Maccas red would get rescinded and it did, so who knows.


6.) 02 Oct 2023 01:59:03
Truly gutted with Gakpo's injury.

When first signed, I have doubts that he'll do ok.

But that Spurs game, I think I saw him trying to fight his pain and forcing himself to carry on. Somehow saw that he was struggling a bit after that goal. That kind of attitude and passion really makes me liking this dude more and more.


7.) 02 Oct 2023 02:32:20
I don't think that it will. They've already admitted to major wrongdoings here I can't see them giving us more ammunition.


8.) 02 Oct 2023 06:38:06
It doesn’t matter if a tackle is accidentally, actually you would hope that most bad tackles are accidental or that would mean a player going out of his way to do someone. Jones got a touch on the ball, he wasn’t in control of it and his boot ended up half way up the players shin. If Jones was going a bit harder he could have seriously injured or broke the players leg. It was a red card.


9.) 02 Oct 2023 08:06:47
Really? I can’t believe I’m actually seeing anyone saying that’s a red card. Even the Spurs fans I know are saying it wasn’t a red card.

Football is a contact sport and sometimes people get hurt accidentally it’s part of the game. If we are going by the ‘intent isn’t taken into account’ then every time someone’s hand or arm hits another players face they should be sent off. Intent or not as intent isn’t taken into account.

You have to look at the angle he goes in not the angle he ended up at. His foot was low, behind the ball but the block tackle forced his foot to slip.

If someone slipped on the ground fell over and caught someone on the shin would you expect them to be sent off? Of course not.

It was never a red. But I do agree it might not be rescinded because they have already admitted a huge gaff. To admit another would show just how corrupt those officials were.


10.) 02 Oct 2023 08:11:14
I agree with you, Faith and Irish.


11.) 02 Oct 2023 08:38:32
I know it is the rule BUT it is a stupid rule cos it gives no room for a referee's discretion to analyse the tackle on it's merits. If you watch the play from all angles in slow motion, Jones and Bissouma go in an a 50/ 50 ball and both got full contact on the ball at fort with Jones using the inside of his foot so the rubbish about going in studs showing, is patently false.

Then upon contact, his studs slip on the ball (as he lost his footing) and catches Bissouma. For me, it was not a red, just as Gusto's tackle in the Chelsea game was not a red. That's my opinion on it.

Also and here is the insidious part. Just look at the way the VAR shows the tackle on the screen to the ref. He does not roll the whole tape of the action from all angles that we all saw. He freezes the frame and shows where contact is made at the END of the play with no context as to what happened before which tells me that there was an outcome they wanted cos they are told to apply the letter of the law without any discretion or judgement of the whole scenario, something I think is totally wrong.


12.) 02 Oct 2023 09:22:34
I agree Oli.

Anyone saying he went over the ball simply doesn’t understand the game. To go over the ball your foot has to be high to start with. Then you have no option but to catch the player high up the leg.

This one was a side foot with his foot very low. The block tackle causes his foot to slip over the ball and it’s unfortunate that Bissouma’s leg is in the way. It’s purely incidental contact.

This red card would go under the label ‘serious foul play’ which does not describe what Curtis Jones did. He didn’t go in high, he got the ball, he didn’t even intentionally follow through to leave one on him either.

Red cards have such a huge impact on the outcome of a game that you simply can’t send people off for accidental collisions unless their initial motion is deemed to cause the collision and deemed dangerous.

Like I said earlier if we are now sending people off for the result and not the action then every time an arm or a hand hits someone in the face it’s a red card.

I would challenge anyone who says what Curtis did was serious foul play. It simply wasn’t.


13.) 02 Oct 2023 09:58:44
The ref analysed the tackle and used his discretion. He gave a yellow and was advised to analyse the tackle and use his discretion. He wasn't told to issue a red.
I don't know the letter of the law but I think it was a red. That's me using my discretion and others are using theirs to think it was a yellow.
Jones was unlucky to end up making a bad challenge but that is what it was. Discretion should focus on what Jones ended up doing and not what he intended to do.


14.) 02 Oct 2023 12:56:14
Rigsby I man not talking about intent or whether CJ meant to hurt him so please, put that to the side. Yes, the ref is allowed to use his discretion BUT why does the VAR have to try to overturn it? Keep in mind that FIFA have said that VAR replays should NOT be done in slow motion cos it makes things worse so why have they been doing this in the PL?

Now if he was advised to look at the monitor then, why did the VAR not play the whole clip from the beginning till the end of the play from all angles, the same way we all saw it on the replay?
Why did the VAR show a still shot of the END of the play? By doing that, the VAR has manipulated the system to influence the ref and prove to him that he made a mistake whereas IMO, he did not cos he gave a yellow.

If the VAR wanted to be fair and transparent, he should have played the whole clip of the incident the same way he did on the replay and from the angles we all saw. Whatever the ref gives after that, I will accept cos all the info is out there. This did not happen here. That is my point.


 

 

25 Aug 2023 11:40:22
Shock, horror Konate is injured again!

How can we build our future defence around this guy when he is always injured?

What was already a tough trip to Newcastle will now become even tougher.

If I was klopp I would abandon the hybrid trent tatic for this match or we could match or even better aston villa's result there.

In terms of this transfer Window it started off really well but has truly stagnated.

I have the feeling our transfer business is done and that sadly will be the difference between finishing in the top 5 and truly challenging on all fronts.

Our season seems to be reliant on players not getting injured, we have been here before and was only saved by a header from Allison Becker!

KK7, relax, man. Players get injured. It happens esp; at this point of the season where fitness levels are still being built up with the players. I saw Klopp's presser and he said Konate i a doubt. He has not been ruled out yet so let's see what happens. Same with our transfer business.

Also, could it be that Konate got his muscle issue due to the unnecessary dog's work he is being asked to do in this wretched system that puts too much on him? Thing about that. CHill, man.


2.) 25 Aug 2023 12:14:47
I would be more surprised if Konate, Jones and Thiago were actually fit to play.


3.) 25 Aug 2023 12:23:03
he needs to shed his injury prone tag or what use is he to us?

Look at calvin- lewin at Everton, is Ed025 shocked that he is injured again? no, there is a fine line between a player getting injured and one that is ALWAYS getting injured.

When was the last time Konante played 20 games on the bounce?


4.) 25 Aug 2023 12:30:27
A treble Mark, you would get some odds for that mate ?.


5.) 25 Aug 2023 12:40:19
About 1/ 10 mate, unfortunately.

On a brighter note, our front 5 should be able to cause them massive problems as well.


6.) 25 Aug 2023 12:41:31
Imagine if Jota and Matip start on Sunday.

We could come away with a win, clean sheet and Jota a goal and assist and there would still be tears.

I wish people who post about 20 times a day telling people to 'chill' or 'relax' would just chill and relax enough to stop telling other people to chill and relax and then I might be chill and relaxed enough to not have to post this type of unrelaxed and unchilled response.
WE GET IT!
You're super chilled and super relaxed about matip and gomez playing against Newcastle.
You're not chilled and relaxed about this 'wretched system' though. Maybe you're allowed to voice your worries on the system and others should be allowed to voice their worries on the quality of back up to konate.

Redwills ?????.


9.) 25 Aug 2023 13:42:13
Top post, RedWillis. Some things just need to be said.


10.) 25 Aug 2023 14:03:01
If he’s not going to be able to keep fit id be moving him on next summer top top player but not worth that hassle. A new CB pairing will be priority in 12 months drop VVD down as cover and work on phasing him out.


11.) 25 Aug 2023 14:32:29
Maybe RW we don’t let football consume our life and get us worried if someone gets injured.


12.) 25 Aug 2023 15:24:39
Being hysterical is always the best approach to rectifying a wretched system and a handful of injuries.
Now, where's that hundred million that we have left over from the Caceido bid?


13.) 25 Aug 2023 15:43:01
Gone on some new golf venture ?.


14.) 25 Aug 2023 16:27:50
Redwills, yes I actually am chilled and relaxed. You know why? Cos I control nothing and won't bother my head about things I cannot control. Yeah, the system is useless and fuming each time we play it. You think Im here losing my mind and going all hysterical like you are? Sorry, I value my mental health. You obv. have other ideas. Good on you, mate.

If Matip or Gomez have to play then, so be it. If Klopp plays the system on Sun then, so be it. All I can hope for is that we get a good result regardless. If you want to keep losing your head and creating mental five alarm fires over stuff you cannot control then, have at it, mate. Leave the rest of us out of it.

I am relaxed and will watch my team play hoping they will win. No point whining and crying about stuff I cannot control regardless of how I feel about it. As @Rigsby said, the best way to handle or discuss a situation is to get all hysterical and crazy about it cos clearly that will help fix it. Don't include me in that nonsense.


15.) 25 Aug 2023 18:38:44
Olired
You use inflammatory and exaggerated language like 'losing my mind' and 'hysterical' 'whining' 'crying' 'crazy' 'mental health'.
No one is doing any of those things.
You're pretending to be carefree and that your mood is not altered by the teams performances.
If you don't care that much then why are you responding to every single post on a site about the team?
You say you won't bother coz you can't control what happens but you are on here trying to control what people are allowed to say or not by accusing them of being 'hysterical' if you don't agree with them.

Also I am a psychotherapist and so I don't need you to tell me anything about mental health.


16.) 26 Aug 2023 00:11:51
Good news is we have 3 other senior CBS not named Virgil Van Dijk who can step in.


17.) 26 Aug 2023 00:27:59
As a psychotherapist can't you see the benefits of being chilled and relaxed, Redwillis1?
You say that no one is hysterical and whiney about by the situation of the club. Do you really believe that? Are we a absolute mess, a shambles, a laughing stock, a disgrace etc?
Isn't that inflammatory or exaggerated talk, if it's not hysterical or whiney talk?


18.) 26 Aug 2023 09:16:56
The difference is one set of comments are negative critiques, concerns or opinions about the football club we all support (which is part of what this forum is for) and the other set of comments are personal and negative criticisms about people who use this site and their opinions.
Personally I feel the transfer dealings since last summer have been a mess. It seems obvious to me that if we were going to play this system that we need a left back that plays centre back and a defensive midfielder who can drop in to the defence. We haven't got the former and we sold our Dm and couldn't replace him until the season had started. Many of us could see the frailties of our midfield last summer and said so because we care about liverpool staying at the top. I could see last season and in preseason that if konate got injured then it would be a struggle for matip or gomez to cover his new role of cb + right back. Matip doesn't have the pace and goes walkabout an gomez unfortunately looks to have no confidence as a cb. For voicing these concerns I got told I was wrong and that what I saw didn't mean anything and I should just relax. I should be allowed to voice my concerns about the team without personal accusations of Hysteria or madness being thrown at me. Explain why my opinion is wrong and let's have a debate about it don't label me as hysterical as if that is the end of the discussion.
Yes as a psychotherapist I can see the benefits of being chilled and relaxed. But I can also see the benefits of having passion, honesty and caring about something i love and expressing concerns when i see them making mistakes rather than repressing my feelings and burying my head in the sand regarding their poor decisions.
I think people who comment on every post to tell the OP they're hysterical for having an opinion come across as sanctimonious and controlling.

You can forget Carvhalho he has burnt his bridges with Klopp, The only thing he will be doing when he gets back is clearing out his locker and finding another club to play for.

Andre would be a superb signing and if there is still a chance to get him, we should take it.

I agree with you about Endo, and I am confident he will prove his worth as the season goes on.

The best goalkeeper in the world in 1 v 1 situations, the man is simply priceless.

Plus he plays guitar beautifully with Jamie Webster!

Ed001: Thank you so much for putting Barkley back into his box, the hyperbole around him has been over the top, with all due respect to luton, he has simply found his level.

I agree with you as regards to Gravenberch when players find form they should keep there places.

Finally I was delighted for Gakpo as he takes a lot of stick from sections of Liverpool fans, when as far as I am concerned he is a victim of his ability to play in so many positions for Klopp.

Its always nice to see Youngsters not only get there chance but take it as well.

Bradley is so good I forget he is only 20, he plays like a experienced campaigner.

{Ed001's Note - it is odd how some players get such hyperbole for doing nothing.}

@leek: lfc are currently 2 pts clear at the top, if lfc keep winning they will remain 2 pts clear, there will be nothing Arsenal or city can do about it.

Chasing cricket scores? been there before it did not turn out well.

Put Simply 13 1-0 wins and title number 20 is ours.

Thanks for the replies I can see where everybody is coming from.

I just feel we are playing with the handbrake on whereas we have the talent to be blowing teams away.

Lets not forget we have had a major upgrade in defence and goalkeeper, so I feel we can afford to take the risks.

Klopp for me has to stop shoehorning players into roles they are not comfortable in, play Endo in the 6 and return
Mac Allister into the role he was bought for.

I would hate for Klopp's reign to end with only 1 pl title because he allowed stubbornness to guide him.

Every team trying to play like Man city is not healthy, the PL is in danger of fast becoming a 1 team league, where the best we can hope for is to finish 2nd a win a domestic cup.

I find him to be a instinctive player, the more he thinks about things the more he sometimes struggles.

The goals he has scored however show me there is a finisher there.

We may have to accept he will miss as many as he scores, the only problem with that is it leads to us fans getting frustrated when we get results like we got on Sunday.
