I understand that for the right price Jackson Martinez could be available in the summer. I really like what I have seen from this guy and think would offer something different for LFC attacking line. Eds what do you think the chances are of Liverpool taking a look? {Ed001's Note - we have been watching Porto (also keeping a close eye on their youth system too), hence the initial rumours. I have no idea at all who we are watching though, at senior level. At youth level, it is simply keeping an eye on their young players to see who is developing etc, rather than a specific target.}


1.) Could the Porto Senior player be
James Rodriguez? we are supposed to looking for a #10 aren't we?

Question for the Ed's.

When FSG took over Liverpool, a big deal was made about their vision for the future. One of the main points was the ideal of developing youth through the academy and making them ready for the Liverpool 1st team.

My question is, does this philosophy still stand, and if so which of the managers being linked with the vacant position have the best track record of doing this? If none of the managers being linked are particularly astute at developing youth are there any managers available who would fit that criteria?


{Ed002's Note - I am not so sure that the Academy was too much of a deal. In reality all clubs look to buy younger players and would like to develop them. But there is always a need to have a mix of youth and experience. Klopp has certainly done well in Germany with making the most of younger players.}

He Ed's.

Quick question, but do you know if everything is going according to plan with Sturridges return from injury?

Can we still expect to see him returning to the first team around the end of October?


{Ed002's Note - The club has not said anything further.}

Most reports (e.g. the the physio room injury table) talk about the game against united in two and half weeks.



25 Aug 2015 09:08:23
Given peoples inability to take anything written on here as someones opinion without it being spelled out, i state that everything below is "Only my opinion"

So to start with I must say I am now starting to get excited about the season ahead of us. I did come in to the new season with a thin veil of negativity about the manager and team. However 3 games in and that veil is slowly being lifted. We have a new defensive resilience that can only improve the more that Lucas is played, and Benteke looks like he may actually offer more than just a big lump up front, that I initially thought he would be.

A couple of opinions about last nights performance however:

1 - We lack width. With both of Gomez and Clyne being instructed to provide a lot more defensively than in previous seasons, Coutinho and Firmino are being heavily relied on to provide the width. Both players prefer to cut inside which makes the whole team played a lot narrower. Benteke thrives off balls in to the box from wide positions, hence our best chance last night coming from a great ball in to the box from Firmino out on the left. MORE WIDTH=MORE GOALS.

2- Youth need to be managed carefully. Joe Gomez was a stand out performer and is in the team on merit. However at some point his form will dip and when he gets removed from the team for a short period this will be the best decision. No calling for Brendans head. Ibe is a perfect example. He has not been playing well, making bad decisions so was dropped to the bench and given a 30 minute cameo (which was poor). Rossiter also got a good run out. He obviously needs time so let's give it to him.

3- Optimism. I am now optimistic. I believe we can go in to every match and get a result. All fans should be optimistic. I believe al the pessimists are only that way because it makes bad results easier to swallow. Stop being negative and let's all unite under the liver bird.



1.) 25 Aug 2015 09:22:43
Think Lucas might be going mate.

2.) 25 Aug 2015 09:34:29
I agree with your first point. We lack Genuine pace on the flanks, Players like Walcott/Depay/Sanchez for examples.
Its high time for BR to swallow his eggo and bring back Markovic and use Moreno if its an option.

I have said this earlier but made to shut as Posters wanted Lallana and all ACM to play on the flanks.

3.) 25 Aug 2015 09:50:20
I agree that our best talent is in the AM position, although I do not include lallana in that category as he is rubbish IMO. However that talent will get us through matches with lesser teams, but against the bigger clubs you need to make the pitch as big as possible to create the space for Benteke/Sturridge. Look at Man City this season. With Navas and Sterling staying out wide, there are even larger pockets of space for Silva (best player in the premier league) to play in, which allows him to play cute balls in to Aguero/Bony/Toure. I honestly believe that COutinho can be as good as Silva in time and if we play with width.

4.) 25 Aug 2015 09:53:15
Lallana u=isn't bad on the flanks. You were told to drop the pace is everything as a winger. As you had nothing to back up such a claim.what exactly have walcott and depay achieved so far in the prem on the flanks.
Sanchez got most his goals an assists last year playing centrally. but he's a good winger that doesn't rely on pace,he relies on his trickery and movement.

5.) 25 Aug 2015 10:00:57
Bobatron, I have not mentioned pace once, just players whose natural instinct is to stay wide, and make the pitch bigger. Of course all wingers cut in from time to time when the opportunity presents itself, but when all a wide player does is cut in, it allows the defence to stay more compact and reduces the space in the centre of the pitch for Coutinho/Sturridge/Benteke to play in

6.) 25 Aug 2015 10:32:52
lucas I was talking to harry aka European Glory

7.) 25 Aug 2015 10:34:44
I am not sure how could you not ask for pace, when you play a counter attacking free fast football.
Y isn't Oscar preferd on the flanks and Pedro/Willian/Cuardado makes it

8.) 25 Aug 2015 10:37:28
All good points klucas87 and i appreciate your optimism. You just forgot to mention the one overwhelming negative aspect of our team - we still have BR as our manager. So long as we do, we will never go as far as we could with the players we have. The man as an absolute muppet.

9.) 25 Aug 2015 10:42:43
Lallana is not rubbish!! If you think he is then go to specsavers! LOL

10.) 25 Aug 2015 11:07:35
klucas87 i think bobatrons post is meant for EG, and i agree with him. i still don't see pace as the best attribute of a winger.

11.) 25 Aug 2015 11:33:19
EG exactly how much have those boys done on the flanks with their pace,the likes of kuyt,beckham,Milner etc can't do.I would take any of these 3 ahead of Cuardrado,Pedro and Willian personally none of whom have an end product on their cross.Playing wide simply requires discipline to stay wide,cross overlap and dummy run,you do all these things right you create space and time. Simply being able to run 100metre in 12 seconds won't turn you into a good crosser or give you the ability to get back if you lack a work ethic.

Are you telling me Chelsea play counter attacking football now?

12.) 25 Aug 2015 11:46:25
Apologies Bobatron, I thought you meant the comments for me.

As for Malak, I hope the LOL at the end of the statement implies a large dose of sarcasm, because lallana is very very average.

Finally for Redtastic, I suggest you go and set up a Brendan Rodgers hate campaign site, because I am frankly sick of all the haters. Yes there are better managers out there, but there are worse. He is already showing signs of changing his approach this season, and anyone who is willing to learn from there mistakes/take guidance from others such as the backroom staff, has my full support. Also I am a Liverpool fan so want to believe he can bring success.

13.) 25 Aug 2015 11:57:12

If pace isn't the best attribute, then what's Jordan IBE? What's he doing on the flanks?

Ed01, Y don't you clear up the primary attributes of a winger?

{Ed001's Note - it really depends on how the team is set out to play. No point having pace if the winger has no space to run into.}

14.) 25 Aug 2015 12:23:34
The Lol was for your inability to see that Lallana is far from an average player that is being used completly wrong, you just don't undrstand football i guess, just like BR ;)

Hi Ed's

I have been watching the U21 championship and there have been some real standout performers already. The Czech Republic hattrick hero was very impressive, but also Emre Can.

Being played in his preferred Midfield role, he has been the focal point of everything Germany have done.

My question is, will Brendan Rodgers and/or any scouts be there watching our own players to assess their development? If the answer is yes does Can's performances make it more likely he will be given his chance in Liverpools MF next season?



{Ed001's Note - Liverpool always have scouts monitoring tournaments like this and videos of the games our players appear in will be available to the coaching staff to look at.}

1.) 22 Jun 2015 21:22:32
Roberto Martinez is always at the Everton academy home matches. Never seen The One with the Huge Nose at any of our Academy games

2.) 22 Jun 2015 21:50:15
More abuse for the manager of the team you support - why do you not like his nose?? I so do not like noseists, this should be a hate crime!!

3.) 22 Jun 2015 22:42:33
Why on earth do you expect Thommo to be at our academy games???



03 Mar 2015 11:07:11
Hi Eds

After watching the Liverpool U21's last night I was again impressed by Jerome Sinclair. He looks like a perfect fit for the system that Liverpool play, with pace, power and good technical ability. Do you think he will be given a chance to impress with the first team before the season ends?


{Ed001's Note - the problem is that we have so many blocking the route for him into the first team. Maybe if Studger was still injured he would have had a good shout, for me he should be on loan to a Championship team to get some regular first team football.}

1.) 03 Mar 2015 11:56:37
But wouldn't he then be Brendaned?

{Ed001's Note - you obviously fail to understand the term.}

2.) 03 Mar 2015 12:48:03
he has to be given a chance, maybe something like what Ibe got, a game or two at the end of the season if everything is tied up and then loaned out to a championship club next season. Of course its a big step up from under19 to prem, but the lad defs does have the qualities and potential.

{Ed001's Note - he could go out on a short term loan now and still come back and play a couple of games at the end of the season.}

3.) 03 Mar 2015 13:06:47
the reserve league is over for us any way and I think we're out the cups, so I think it would be a good idea to loan him now.

4.) 03 Mar 2015 16:19:30
There's really nowhere to play him. You would ideally like to play Sinclair in an early FA cup/league cup game or as a substitute in a game that's wrapped up, just to give him a taste of the action. Although it worked well for Flanagan and Ibe, I don't like throwing players off the deep end in big games as you run the risk of wrecking their confidence as much as improving them. Sinclair would be a great acquisition for a team trying to stay up in the Championship right now and (IMO) could get into the squad next season.

5.) 03 Mar 2015 16:48:37
We seem to have a good relationship with Derby County, and I do believe their top goalscorer Chris Martin is out at the moment. That would be great experience for Jerome Sinclair as a short term loan.

6.) 03 Mar 2015 16:52:38
Should have tried to slot him in at Derby to replace Ibe

I spent the weekend at Bernies and he was on top form, pulling all sorts of shapes on the dance floor.

I'm glad they got shirt numbers sorted out before the transfer details. Always important that a player is happy with his number.

I hope it keeps him out for the season. Horrible thing to say but would love to see TAA, Flanno and potentially Gomez all get given a chance.

I know it has been done to death, and I don't full know what happened behind the scenes or in front of the cameras that made his and klopps relationship break down, but it still seems like biting your nose of to spite your face. He is arguably our best centre back (in my opinion he is) and would be a very welcome addition to the squad without spending a penny. We are thinking of spending £50M on VVD, but I am sure if you offered Klopp £10M to forget whatever happened it could all be solved!

Won't happen so don't shoot me just thinking and writing.

Didn’t you know this has been the plan all along. Give Gerrard enough time to develop into the next Liverpool manager. Thank you rangers for having him until we are ready.

Not at all. I am sure that the Liverpool heirarchy and rangers have been planning this for a while.

Heres a list of 10 things you could have spent your time on which in my opinion would be better than your songwriting.

1. Cleaning the carpet
2. Reading Conn Iggulden
3. Knocking one out
4. Practising your South African accent
5. Plucking your nasal hairs
6. Thinking about all the ideas you have had that were going to make you rich that you never followed through on
7. Worrying about Boris Johnson
8. Working on your caligraphy
9. Knocking a second one out
10. Having a staring contest with the mirror

I'm sure there are more but these are my top 10 suggestions.
