About our backup winger. We're saying Dembele would be too expensive for backup and wouldn't want to be on the bench. We're saying Wilson isn't up to scratch, and we're saying Woodburn is too young.

What's happening with Lazar Markovic? We can't sign any quality as they don't want to be backup. We already have a player that was mooted as the next big thing 3 years ago. Has he improved at all? Could he fill in as backup? Or is he just nowhere near good enough?

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - Malkovich is to be sold but money is the issue at present. His time at Liverpool has been an expensive - much more expensive than people realise - disaster.}


1.) 04 Jun 2018 20:29:06
Eds2 I understand maybe Liverpools worst financial investment.


2.) 04 Jun 2018 20:34:23
John Malkovich? 🤨.


3.) 04 Jun 2018 22:14:15
Malkovich Malkovich.


4.) 04 Jun 2018 23:17:14
could you explain what you mean by that ed002? just curious about how it was so costly.

{Ed002's Note - I have explained before but there was a side contract for image rights that was crippling.}

I've seen several posts asking for a backup for Salah/ Mane. The likes of Arnautovic and Shaqiri have been mentioned, neither of which good enough, young enough and won't want to be on the bench.

My choice would be Brighton's Anthony Knockheart. He's skillful, fast, really works his socks off and I've not heard of any attitude problems (like I've heard about the other two) . I also think he'd be happy to be on the bench for a big club and prove himself and/ or be cover.

What do you think?

I think he'd fit in really well to Klopp's system.

EpicPotato

1.) 06 May 2018 21:16:38
I do rate knockaert but I’d rather go for izqueirdo because of his sheer ice and dribbling ability. He would fit better in our system imo.


2.) 06 May 2018 22:05:14
Pace not ice*.


3.) 06 May 2018 22:39:19
I said last season that we should go and sign Zaha and Pieters from stoke. klopp could then either rotate front four or drop mane into midfield Pieters would be a good back up for Robbo. I'm afraid Moreno isnt.


4.) 07 May 2018 01:58:18
Arnautovic not good enough but Knockaert is?


5.) 07 May 2018 05:49:35
Langland- you said last season that Pieters would be a good backup for Robbo? We didn’t even have Robbo last season.


6.) 07 May 2018 08:16:48
That's actually a good choice. Will he be willing to come with limited playing time? .


7.) 07 May 2018 08:37:13
Not good enough on the ball to play in our system! Aurnatovic is ok!


8.) 07 May 2018 10:06:02
Well it's certainly divided opinion.

No name and Cobra666: I was referring to the fact that Arnautovic wouldn't want to be backup or have to prove his place in the side, wheras Knockheart is young enough and I also think flexible enough.


9.) 07 May 2018 14:43:53
Cobra666
I said last season that we should sign Pieters and Zaha.
We didn't sign either.
We should sign them this season.
Pieters would be a good back up for Robbo and if ever Salah leaves we should play Pieters a faint him.
Zaha would be a brill addition. Proven premiership and Klopp could make him a better player.

{Ed001's Note - oh yes buy dross to take us forward to a new Hodgson era. Great.}


10.) 07 May 2018 15:44:09
I personally think he’s too inconsistant and feel like we’ve took a big step in our quality of recruitment in the last 18 months, would like to think we wouldn’t take a backwards step targeting mediocre players again. An attacking midfielder capable of playing in the front 3 is what I thinks best, then we can both rotate them and have them all starting when needed. Abit like how coutinho was used in the first half of this season.


11.) 07 May 2018 17:20:15
TIA19. Inconsistency is what you often get with young players. Just them when they have a good game and when they're having a bad day, if they're still giving 100% (but just not quite pulling it off) and that's enough for me. On his good days, he's absolutely quality. He really gave Man Utd's defence a surprise and something to think about.

Consistency can be coached. The raw talent can't.

I really hope I'm not shooting us in the foot here. Touch wood he doesn't have a blinder against us next Sunday. Haha.


12.) 07 May 2018 19:41:17
Shaquiri? Anautovic? Zaha? Good grief, what is going on here? As Ed said, these guys are not good enough to even be the backup to our backups. Instead of these guys, I would just stick with Harry Wilson and the other kids. Like Epic, I do like Knockaerts and to some extent Izquierdo even tho, they may still be raw.


13.) 07 May 2018 22:18:38
I think Redmond from Southampton would be a good shout to cover both wings.


14.) 08 May 2018 12:39:45
Haha, come on Ed001 surely, a 29 year old Championship left back with one assist in 29 games is the answer to our prayers. Knockaert and Izquierdo are decent players but not really good enough for Liverpool and the premium on Premier League players means we'd get better value elsewhere. And good grief another Redmond fan. Please give it up, he is just pants. Is it because he scored a goal on Saturday? You know that's his first all season? He's not even good enough for Southampton and Harry Wilson is already a better player than Redmond.

{Ed001's Note - Redmond has been awful all season.}


15.) 08 May 2018 18:02:26
Redmond? Yikes!


 

 

30 Jul 2017 20:28:12
Hi Eds, I'm guessing you're sick of all the Coutinho talk. Id be more worried if Barcelona were trying to get Mane (who was our player of the season) . I hope we keep pip, but I'd be more worried if they were in for Mane.

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - That would be Inter who are interested in Mane.}


1.) 30 Jul 2017 20:57:39
Just shows what a top bunch of players we have amassed that clubs like Barca, Inter and Juventus want to sign them.


2.) 30 Jul 2017 21:04:57
Can inter afford £200m? 😉.


 

 

15 Jul 2017 14:34:35
Hull City want Kent on loan for a season as part of the Robertson deal.

EpicPotato

1.) 15 Jul 2017 14:57:02
Would be good for the lad if true.


2.) 15 Jul 2017 16:00:37
KENT is a speedster. The loan will really be of benefit to all (LFC, HULL, RYAN)


 

 

16 Mar 2017 18:57:50
ESPN are saying we're in for Anderson Talisca. Any truth in it?

EpicPotato

{Ed002's Note - It is like a timewarp.

There was interest in Benfica's Anderson Talisca from Liverpool and others in late 2014. Wolves showed interest last summer and a deal nearly happened. Lazio are interested in taking him to Italy now.}


1.) 16 Mar 2017 19:24:41
Thanks Ed. It seemed a bit random as I'd not heard anything for ages about him.

{Ed002's Note - Well, he will be moving on - Benfica need the money and don't want him. Besiktas don't have the money to buy him but would like to. Lazio want him to replace Keita Balde Diao. I don't see Liverpool in the picture.}


2.) 16 Mar 2017 19:41:41
Thanks again for the reply ed. I know it's the Liverpool pages, but where is Diao likely to go? I rate that lad.

{Ed002's Note - Try the European pages please - it is nothing to do with Liverpool.}

I don't think my fingernails have ever been any shorter.

Enjoy the game everyone and for those who've been lucky enough to be in Kiev, stay safe.

One more game. Let's make it count.

Allez Allez Allez.

Poor West Ham, lol. United pretty much playing 5-4-1 against them when they've pretty much nothing to win or lose. Makes me sick.

EpicPotato

1.) 10 May 2018 21:16:59
Lol I was thinking the same mate, pathetic to be honest.


2.) 10 May 2018 22:20:18
Bit weird rather sickening. But for what amounts to an exhibition match at least give the fans some entertainment. Well, that said from someone who has only seen the score, not the match. I won't be seeking out the highlights, however. One thing is for sure - Mourinho does not care one jot about the fans, just his 'eritage. An open game, he would not endure.


3.) 10 May 2018 23:37:49
Sums jose up. 5 minutes to go, he takes his striker Sanchez off for a left back young! He then in last 2 minutes takes Bailly on so finished with 4 c, bks and 2 full bks on the pith and Martial sitting on the bench! All the United fans i know are raging Haha.


4.) 11 May 2018 07:20:42
Boring as hell but they secured second. Whilst we are on terrible form and can’t break defences down in the league at the minute.
Not long ago we were up for overtaking United and getting second.
Like him or loathe him- he’s got them back up there.


5.) 11 May 2018 07:44:44
Jose is a pulis with money.


6.) 11 May 2018 08:03:33
In reality what’s the difference between 2nd and 4th our form has dropped due to our champs league run . I know which group of fans have enjoyed their season more.


7.) 11 May 2018 08:16:20
I just find it disrespectful, both to West Ham, and both sets of fans. There's nothing to play for. At least try and win for the fans. I'd be fuming if I was a Man Utd fan and had paid to watch that.


8.) 11 May 2018 16:30:23
AggerDo, what has Utd being dire for majority of the season, have to do with LFC, exactly or are you just trying to have a moan for no reason? Yes, we aren't second BUT who cares? We are both light years behind City. "He got them back up there". Yes and NO. He did get them there BUT many of their fans are fed up with him and want him gone. You cannot address one w/ o the other.

Also, us not breaking down defences, is a misnomer cos we have broken down more buses this season than the last season and the one before that and the stats bear that out. The thread is about Utd and how DIRE they were cos I watched the game and wow, such dross. Mou is a cancer in that club and his post game presser was disgraceful, blaming the players for his own incompetence.


9.) 11 May 2018 17:13:50
I'm sure we would want some pragmatism in our approach when it is necessary.


 

 

10 Sep 2017 21:11:24
Luis Alberto started and scored tonight for Lazio against AC Milan. We definitely missed a trick with him. It was great to see 4 ex-Liverpool players in action in Serie A though. Lucas, Alberto, Suso and Borini. Borini's place must be in danger though. He wasn't great.

EpicPotato

1.) 10 Sep 2017 21:57:23
Epic, missed a trick with who? Alberto? A guy who was clearly not good enough for even the reserves?


2.) 10 Sep 2017 22:02:54
Off-field issues iirc.


3.) 11 Sep 2017 05:10:10
It's took 3 years for him to do something of note and suddenly were missing out? Have you seen our squad at the minute?


4.) 11 Sep 2017 11:38:00
He was good enough for our reserves.


 

 

28 Aug 2017 12:46:51
Have we accepted a £148m bid for Coutinho? I can't find it on any site, it was on the news ticker on my phone.

EpicPotato

 

 

23 Aug 2017 19:10:03
Well it looks like we're going for it. Sane, Firmino and Salah the front three. Would have liked to see Robertson play LB but it gice Moreno another chance to shine I guess. No shocks anywhere else. TAA to start at RB.

EpicPotato

1.) 23 Aug 2017 19:28:55
I wouldn't want sane in the team after his weekends performance.


2.) 23 Aug 2017 20:11:17
Well that's one good thing about
Supporting Liverpool, we can't
Park any busses with our defense. It's
Kill or be killed - entertaining stuff.

b) I agree with Dalglish.
