Eds, what's the play with young Allan Rodriguez. What are the chances he gets his permit next season. Are the club wanting to fight to keep him?


{Ed001's Note - the club would love to keep him, it is most likely he gets another loan move next season.}

1.) 19 Apr 2017 12:39:57
How good is he eds? Not seen much of him. Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - he is highly rated by the club and in Germany.}

2.) 19 Apr 2017 22:00:11
i know i was surprised that he managed to get loaned to a german team in the top league.

What would you say is the reason for him not getting much game time is it literally a case of him just not what the manager wants in his starting 11?

{Ed001's Note - he is young, still getting used to the country and not really ready to be a regular starter.}

I may have to reserve judgement on this, but given the adjustments Klopp has made tot he team and our approach i feel like have reduced our risk of brain farts and exposing our CBs to wave after wave of pressure.
I am sure there will be challenges along the way, including at set piece time. But the performances recently have been really solid and it is noticeable to me how much more relaxed and assured our CBs have looked.


{Ed0333's Note - don’t tempt fate Faith

1.) 20 Nov 2017 02:32:57
haah true 333! i must have edited my original post, meant to also say that I fully recognize our 4 games since spurs have been against opposition vaguely resembling speed bumps. but still!

{Ed0333's Note - I always think worst case scenario and if something good happens it’s a pleasant surprise mate

2.) 20 Nov 2017 07:20:11
I think this weeks games against Sevilla and Chelsea will present bigger speed bumps mate and test our new defensive confidence. But with Migs behind them we're always a mistake a way from conceding a goal.

3.) 20 Nov 2017 07:53:51
We've looked better alright, not sure the defence is any more secure but at least they might feel a little more confident. That said, we are all but one calamity with migs in goals.

4.) 20 Nov 2017 08:36:58
Both Sevilla and Chelsea will pose difference threats, there will be more pace to deal with. These next two games will give a good indication as to how much we’ve improved .

5.) 20 Nov 2017 11:40:15
Faith - we've drawn or lost against Burnley, Newcastle and Watford in the league and Moscow and Leicester in respective cups. The quality of the opposition wasn't a factor in highlighting how poor we were defensively, so the improvement still stands clear.

6.) 20 Nov 2017 15:56:44
Hi ED033 What is your take on the GK situation? I think a lot of our issues stem from that position. A top class keeper covers over quite a few other issues.

{Ed0333's Note - I would give Mignolet a few days off, in that time move out of Anfield to a new ground and change the location of where we train without telling him I’d give the gloves to Karius on a permanent basis so he has time to become the stellar keeper he was in the Bundesliga and the reason we bought him. If that didnt work out I’d give Ward a go. If that experiment went south I’d move heaven and earth buy Salvatore Sirigu in the summer because I think he’s quite good.



29 Sep 2017 11:51:34
doesn't need to be posted - just a message to the eds to say thanks for posting my comments again! :)


{Ed025's Note - your very welcome mate..

1.) 29 Sep 2017 14:54:52
Right now I'd go with Marcelo and Sandro but come next year the next two top dogs will be Alex Telles and Alex Grimaldo both absolute class.

2.) 29 Sep 2017 18:31:40
Christian Fuchs is another shout! Along with Marcelo.



23 Sep 2017 20:12:08
Massive result for the team. Hopefully a confidence builder. Haven't read people's comments but am certain there will be a lot of "good buts" and "yeah buts" out there. Truthfully it's a good 3 points.


1.) 23 Sep 2017 20:47:07
Spot on, Faith. At this point, who cares how we win? We are not in a position to poo-poo the way we got 3 points today. All the big teams won today so we were up against it and our boys delivered. Don't care how we got the win cos in our situation, a win is a win is a win. Up Da Pool!



22 Sep 2017 21:35:08
Anyone else feel like we're missing clyne? I don't remember Clyne getting beat so often down his flank as Gomez, TAA and Flanno have been.


{Ed025's Note - i dont think you remember clyne very well faith, hes the worst out of all of them for me mate..

1.) 22 Sep 2017 21:43:56
Yes, I'm really missing his uncanny ability to stop attacking moves dead by taking an eon to stop the ball with his foot and pass it two yards to a central midfielder.

2.) 22 Sep 2017 21:59:50
He gets a bad rep for me ed25. He is solid defensively. Maybe he got out jumped for a header a couple times and that sticks in the memory. And tbh SR, couldn't care less about his attacking, I think we've all established that our issues lie elsewhere. My view is that some consistency would be nice right about now.

{Ed025's Note - for me faith he is pacey and can play, but he seems to lack a brain mate, gets caught out of position all the time..

3.) 22 Sep 2017 22:12:05

Couldn't care res less about his attacking lol! Klopp system relies on full backs providing solid width! Full backs overlapping and providing outlets is a mandatory hence we looked at Ricardo pereira / Mendy / Sessengon in the summer! You don't even know our system!

4.) 22 Sep 2017 22:49:16
Sorry faith have to agree with Harry. Bit naive to say you couldn't care less about our FB's providing an attacking option when its essential to our system. Also I keep hearing every time that Clyne is good defensively, did you miss he's poor positioning or marking. The only positive I can say defensively is that he's good at one on one defending but he is helped massively there by his pace and strength.

5.) 22 Sep 2017 22:56:18
Appreciate what you see ed (and many others mind) . I see him far more stable that other players we've had there incl our LB position and just think he is one of those players, like Lucas was, that has a couple stinkers stain the overall view of him.

6.) 22 Sep 2017 23:36:33
I like Clyne. He must train hard to be so fit. Quick, strong, great engine etc. He just lacks basic football ability though. He is very hard to beat in a one on one situation because of his physicality and athleticism. But it is very easy to lose him because he lacks awareness.

Is he an awful player? Probably not. We, myself included, have probably all been guilty of slamming him a bit too harshly. However, he isn't as good as a 20 year old centre back and an 18 year old midfielder. So you have to say he probably needs to take a backwards step in his career if he wants first team football. I think his LFC career is over.

This is ultimately a dedicated right back who should be in his prime, and has now been here over 2 years; totally failing to adapt to the pressure and expectation of a big club. I think all parties should move on. Clyne is still good enough to play for a solid mid table team like West Brom, Stoke or Watford. Just not the required quality for a Champions league club, and he hasn't shown any signs of improving, sadly.

7.) 23 Sep 2017 00:21:55
I think he'll play more often than not when fit, he may not cross as well as TAA but he (currently) does everything else better.

{Ed001's Note - he does nothing better, people are guilty of forgetting how truly terrible he is, not that he is likely to be back anytime. He can't pass, cross, shoot, his positioning is terrible defensively, he can't even compete for a header, let alone win one.}

8.) 23 Sep 2017 00:37:37
Constructive criticism We Can't Defend?
Or does the weekend have different rules? :)

9.) 23 Sep 2017 01:14:21
Don't over-react harry, if that is possible. it's obviously good if he can cross a ball, but that is exactly my point. his ability to defend is tainted by people s over-reactive perception of his inability to cross a ball. Yet we watch Gomez, TAA and flanno beaten again and again and again. Shouldn't include flanno to be fair, he can't attack or defend.

{Ed001's Note - it is not. He was bloody awful defensively because he was never there to defend. He was no better than Glenn Johnson. He was never there to be beaten.}

10.) 23 Sep 2017 01:39:42
Agree with Harry and mk here. Yeah a consistently fit (until this season) probably not going to make a glaringly obvious goal conceeding mistake but offers absolutely 0 going forward I lost count of the amount of time he kills an attack by slowing down and playing a nothing ball inside. Not sure if it's lack of confidence beating a man or what as he has the pace but it was the same every game. Fullbacks are crucial to the way Klopp plays imo as they are basically the wide men when we attack. And to have one that doesn't cross or try and take the ball down the line is counter productive. Decent enough player but not for Liverpool at this time. I'd play taa there and Gomez in the centre but that's just my opinion. Taa offers something going forward and has massive potential and Gomez cannot be any worse than what we're seeing and also has potential. Give them a go.

11.) 23 Sep 2017 03:17:21
Clyne is terrible. He will only compound to the problems at the back. In 2 years here, he has gone backwards and his offensive contribution is zilch. At least TAA offers something going forward to make up for his defensive mistakes (which is expected of a young player) . The same excuses cannot be made for Clyne, who was just another of Brendan's head scratching signings.

12.) 23 Sep 2017 06:04:40
He can't cross the ball Faith! That's his biggest issue! He like most liverpool players can't cross the ball!

13.) 23 Sep 2017 07:32:20
Robertson seems like he can cross a ball Harry. There is just nobody there on the end of them. 😉.

14.) 23 Sep 2017 07:44:03
He is a bang average player who should be nowhere near the first team - Alexander-Arnold has shown so much more in his very limited time in the first team than Clyne has shown in seasons, I can't believe people are saying we miss Clyne, insane!

15.) 23 Sep 2017 12:39:11
Clyne is poor both offensively and defensively. Not missed at all.



12 Sep 2017 16:25:43
It is some kind of minor miracle that we've had two almost identical incidents occur immediately following Mane's card. Just trying to understand the angle that lfc take with the appeal - am I right in thinking that the grounds for an appeal would be based in the punishment being too severe and then these two incidents plus maybe other historical ones maybe used as evidence to support the red being downgraded to a yellow? Or is the only possibility to do with reducing a ban?


1.) 12 Sep 2017 18:32:23
The appeal was a nothing-burger as they knew it would amount to nothing after appealing the length of the ban which is standard for all straight red card incidents. Again, a nothing-burger.

If Can's "heart isn't in it" he certainly has a funny way of showing that when he puts the shirt on. maybe he should take a lesson from Coutinho about how to perform when your heart isn't in it.

objectively, there are a few clubs bigger than us. is it wrong to acknowledge this? anywho, that reply must be in response to an earlier post about goretzka aye? seemed odd here haha but anyways, players don't typically move from barcelona to liverpool. just saying.

Agree completely about coutinho going. My freling is that when he is on the field the chemistry takes a nosedive. This season at least. not in it to win it so tata.

Ed2, we all trusts you info and insights, but you did say not long ago that your rarely watch games anymore. If your search function wasn't a dog's breakfast I'm ssure I could find it lol but it's Algoods anbyways, I think we're supposed to be not worrying about money anyways right!?

Firmane - I can see your logic, but at this stage I feel like both clubs will find something reasonable for them both.
