Well at least that's the end of the Ceballos links, he's off to Arsenal on loan.
Who's next on the list? :)


1.) 25 Jul 2019 18:56:04
Sounds like a good deal. Didn’t need him but it has strengthened close opponents.

{Ed001's Note - no he has joined Arsenal, not a close opponent.}

2.) 25 Jul 2019 19:19:18
Ooooh tension in the Ed house, Ed047 won't like that Ed001 :)

{Ed001's Note - he would agree I am sure. He has to or his missus will have words as she is a Liverpool fan.}

3.) 25 Jul 2019 19:49:49
To be honest I’m not that fussed about this, I would rather not do any dealings with Real Madrid.

4.) 26 Jul 2019 13:27:55
Very good ED. We will see, we springboarded quite well after a Europa final loss under a good manager just getting his ideas imbedded. I think Arsenal can improve a lot from last season.

{Ed047's Note - I wish I could argue with Ed01 but sadly I can’t, mainly because she would kick off! 😂

Anybody still think Upamecano is the answers to our defensive problems? Lazy isn't the word I'd use.
BTW that was the worst display of passing from RBL that I've seen in years.




01 Oct 2020 21:07:04
I have to say young Nico has been very good tonight, always seems to have his foot in the right place when Arsenal have the ball. Grujic, well the Arsenal team seem to be very wary of him and staying well away, he does like a battle.
well done the lads.


1.) 01 Oct 2020 21:54:08
Neco s energy and work rate really stood out to me today. He had some awful touches at times but he never gave up and got better as the game went on.

Wilson I have to say was awful tonight. I'd say tonight took a few million off his price tag. Not talking about penalty. That happens. I mean overall play.

2.) 01 Oct 2020 22:14:41
Spot on, Davey. Wilson was poor all game YET people say Origi did us. Go figure. As for Williams, I thought he was very good. Has the right attitude and work ethic and if he keeps playing and working hard, he will be fine. His haters? You know where you can go with your hate, yeah?

3.) 01 Oct 2020 22:28:53
Wilson was bad but he’s not been around the players and the system as long as origi! Wilson he knows his time is up!
Neco did well against good players will do his confidence good!
Amd honestly I think I’d keep Grujic over Ox he's more reliable anyway.

4.) 01 Oct 2020 22:38:04
Wilson hasn't played in any game this season and was played out of position.

I don't think Harry is quite good enough to make a career at the club, but there were clear reasons for his display not being to the level of others and is a bit harsh to judge him on that performance.

5.) 01 Oct 2020 22:47:33
I thought r Williams was poor against Lincoln but he was good tonight.

6.) 02 Oct 2020 00:30:07
I think if you’re having a go at Wilson then you need to have a go at Curtis Jones too. Both were virtually anonymous.
My view though is they are both decent players who didn’t have their best games. It happens.
Jones has time on his side though, Wilson is at an age where he needs to play to find his level so I think it would benefit him to go. At least on loan but a permanent deal might be best for all parties as we apparently need the money.
Whatever happens I wish him all the best he’s always worked hard whenever he’s pulled on the red shirt.

{Ed025's Note - wilson is poor BP, pity its not american football and you could just bring him on for free kicks, because the rest of his game is piss poor mate..

7.) 02 Oct 2020 02:01:37
Agree Robbie - Rhys impressed me, and so did Grujic. Nico battled back from a tricky start.

Shame to go out, but in a shorter season like this I’m sure Klopp is secretly not too disappointed.

8.) 02 Oct 2020 03:05:58
I thought grujic was piss poor tbh. It was an absolute dire game, our midfield couldn't keep the ball, we should have battered arsenal coz they were awful except the keeper. I didn't see grujic do anything. Jones tried but had no help in midfield. We needed someone to put one on xhaka coz he disrupted us all game and kicked our kids about.

Wilson was poor unfortunately, he has talent but put no effort in and didn't evdn do anything with dead balls.

I thought our defence was good and jota was good. Adrian did okay too, although his kicking wasn't great, made some good saves tho.

9.) 03 Oct 2020 02:50:23
Grujic was our best outfield player and had no help from Jones and Wilson so I think the opposite from your assessment is what I saw. Grujic completed 95% passing and only misplaced 1 pass by HT for example. He also forced Leno into 2 full stretch saves and another attempt just flew wide of the post. To single him out as the one not in the game is crazy.



23 Aug 2020 21:56:28
Have to say that a certain No.6 was probably the best player in the CL Final. In the right place every time. Vision!


1.) 23 Aug 2020 22:04:08
Classy player never gives the ball away what a baller he would give us something we don't have that's for sure.

2.) 23 Aug 2020 22:19:02
Thiago is quality, no doubt. The guy is like a point guard in Basketball. He sees things before anyone does. Runs the midfield and dictates the tempo of the game and most importantly, seems to have eyes all over him hence, can look one way and clip a pass the other way with precision, throwing the opposition into chaos. Boss player!

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool will need to change tactics to accommodate him.}

3.) 23 Aug 2020 22:51:25
Ed can I ask in what way would we need to change mate please to slot him in? I kinda no what you mean I think, he needs a bit more time on the ball so might have to play in a 2 man holding maybe?

{Ed002's Note - The Liverpool game is based on pressing - that is not his forte. He is what the Italians call a “regista”.}

4.) 24 Aug 2020 00:50:47
I don't know a thing about Thiago Ed, but it seemed he was playing a holdibg midfield roll tonight, continually trying to keep the ball moving, (he was pretty good at it I thought) similar to what fabinho has offered us. How could we change our tactics to facilitate both fabinho and Thiago? In your opinion could this help us to break down teams who sit deep/ play 3 at the back as I have seen that to be a weakness of ours this past season.


{Ed002's Note - Well that would be the other option - replace Fabinho.}

5.) 24 Aug 2020 08:02:20
Thiago can easily press like the others, unlike the others though he will get the ball to the front 3 much quicker and through the eye of a needle.

6.) 24 Aug 2020 10:31:00
Surely playing for Barcelonas great team a few years ago he has the pressing side of the game in his locker. They won the ball back bery quickly after losing it.

{Ed002's Note - That is not the way he plays.}

7.) 24 Aug 2020 11:38:17
Ed02, Ljinders has spoken about how critical Fabinho's role as a DM is in our system so I am not sure if he will have to be sacrificed to accommodate Thiago even tho Thiago is more of a DLP than a true DM like Fabinho, IMO.

If Klopp wants him then, it is prolly to play a specific role in the team that I don't know of yet, just like Gini had to adapt his game to what Klopp wanted when he signed. Just my take.

{Ed002's Note - The concern would be an imbalance in the team.}



28 Apr 2020 10:52:40
RIP Michael Robinson, what a great season.


1.) 28 Apr 2020 11:25:19
Indeed Polecat. A treble in his one season at Liverpool. More than most players get in a career. RIP Michael Robinson.



09 Jan 2020 21:05:13
A question to ED002 if you are around, what is your thoughts on having an "assistant" manager, considering what's going on across Stanley Park, and who would think appointing one to a world class manager, is a good idea?


{Ed002's Note - It depends on the individuals, division of responsibilities and the roles. I am not sure what you are referring to at Everton - Carlo A has his son Davide helping out - traditionally he is more of a fitness coach. Duncan F is certainly helping out with the coaching. Some managers have a strategist in that role - Klipperty had Buvac but that ended in tears and now he has the more straight down the line Lijnders.}

1.) 09 Jan 2020 21:47:26
Anymore on that Ed. Why is lijnders more straight down the line in comparison to Buvac?

Also Ed. Is Buvac with another club now?

{Ed002's Note - They are completely different people. Buvac turned down a coaching role last year.}

Just keep him.
This lad is going to turn into an excellent midfielder. There was a reason Jurgen brought him in as a young lad and he didn't just bring him in he convinced him to come.
I'm hoping nobody meets his price and he stays and I feel, from what the Eds say, this is what Klopp wants too.

Come on people relax. Before Mane came here not a lot of people were shouting his name.
We have won the CL and EPL in the last two seasons so if Mane wants to go and the right price or price and exchange is to JK and his teams acceptance then go for it.
All players get older and their performance drops and they are eventually replaced. The day will come soon when we have a new front three and the last thing we need is for this to happen when Jurgen is leaving.
If he starts rebuilding now SO BE IT. We have survived great players like Keegan and Rush leaving in the past and got stronger.
Long term it is for the good of the club.

Ed002, surely LFC won't sign Thiago or any other non home qualified player before shifting some of our non home qualified players?
Otherwise LFC can't register these players for the EPL and their value would be drastically reduced as the buying clubs would know this.


{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are actively trying to sell players.}

Once again Ed002 gets it all wrong. Mbappe is IN THE BAG, joining in June but will go straight into the u23's until he learns the ropes. Should see him start in the Caraboa Cup to ease him into the team and maybe Premier League games after the winter break.

Thanks Ed002 for your unending knowledge. ;)

It seems it's ok to put a choke-hold on an opposition player during a corner kick but if 1/ 4 of a mil is offside, well that's a far more serious matter. What a joke it has become. #VAROUT.

Come on JK23 you're being a bit harsh. How else can the clubs keep paying mediocre players £150,000 a week. Surely people on the social could spare a few bob to help them keep their Lambos in premium petrol.
Some of these guys will have short careers and that's why they need to earn in 8 weeks what the average person will earn in 40 years, so dig deep guys.

Ed001, great read as usual, it was worth the wait.
I read that Klopp was told during the game that the VAR people had only looked at the offside and didn't look at the tackle on VvD at all. Surely this is a total lack of knowledge of the rules from both the ref, assistant refs and VAR.
How is such incompetence possible?


{Ed001's Note - that is correct, VAR also confirmed to a number of media outlets that they only checked the offside and never bothered with the challenge. It was only afterwards that PGMOL realised that was a mistake and came out and flat out lied once again to protect their incompetent idiots in the VAR shed. That is why it continues, they are not going to learn from their mistakes when the PGMOL just makes up lies to cover up the errors. Until PGMOL is disbanded and a new body takes over the training of officials, one that actually cares about producing the best officials possible, rather than about covering its ineptitude, we will continue to get incompetence.

We also need to separate VAR from on-field refereeing and use a different set of officials for it. Ones that are specifically and only trained in using VAR. Preferably each game should have an ex-player also involved in the VAR usage, someone who understands what is a dive, what is a deliberate foul etc. Not replacing the VAR operator, but to work alongside them to spot what they should be flagging up to the referee on the pitch.}

I'm not worried about Bobby but what is going on with Trent, he is off the boil and does not look happy in any game we've played this season.
