Ed002, just a quick question regarding our squad and what happens now. I've run through the official website and we have 34 players with allocated first team squad numbers. 9 of them are u21 so don't taje up a squad space. However 18 are non-HG and only 7 are HG. Of that 7 i can only see Wilson, Kelleher and maybe Phillips or Gomez (? ) who might count as club trained. Milner, Henderson and Ox certainly don't.

Surely this means one of the 18 non-HG players cannot be registered. Are all transfer windows shut now, or could we see Grujic or Shaqiri move to somewhere like Russia or China?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, I have explained this all summer. Gomez is not club trained. The CL squad will be limited to 24 with one Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner, Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson or Nathanial Phillips dropping out.

Players can move to anywhere the transfer window remains open - Netherlands, Portugal, Russia etc..}

Shaq won't be going anywhere now.
He's tested positive for C.V..

2.) 06 Oct 2020 12:59:54
Thanks Ed002. Wild suggestion/ question incoming. Could we register Shaqiri in the FA Cup and Champions League squad (but not Grujic), and then register Grujic in the Premier League squad (but not Shaqiri)? Purely hypothetical. I was just wondering if we will have a very upset player sat in the u23's if we can't sell/ loan one of them in time.

{Ed002's Note - You can register different players for the CL and for the PL.}

3.) 06 Oct 2020 18:07:19
Hi hope Shaq gets to play more for Liverpool i think he offers us more if played in the correct position thru the middle.

{Ed025's Note - he is in his best position rax...on the bench..

4.) 06 Oct 2020 18:18:19
A bubble shaped bench. Or a bench shaped bubble.

5.) 07 Oct 2020 05:31:27
He would walk into Everton’s team any day of the week Ed025.

{Ed025's Note - come on hughes,y get a grip, hes on a par with theo walcott who we have just binned, some of you reds do make me laugh, you think all your players are "world class" when in truth besides your first team you are harbouring a shedload of crap!, if he was any good he would be replacing vanilla firmino mate but he cant even get a game in your carabao cup team who were embarrassed by arsenal reserves last week ffs, please lay off the drugs or get treatment for delusions of grandeur friend..

6.) 07 Oct 2020 08:50:00
I wouldn’t agree with that Ed, he was not picked due to potential transfers away from the club, and we weren’t embarrassed by and arsenal team.

{Ed025's Note - thats my whole point SR, the reds are trying to get shut of him as he is dutch elm and surplus to requirement mate, the remark about arsenal was just a reposte in defence of remarks that he walks into the everton team when clearly thats not true, sometimes i should not bite..

7.) 07 Oct 2020 11:49:31
fair enough haha, i can see why you might get frustrated with those comments.

Everton midfield is looking decent, Shaq wouldn't get into that team currently, previously i would argue he could but not anymore!

i think the likes of wolves, arsenal and united should be worried about you competing for the top 4, you might run out of steam at some point but you have a world class manager at the helm and going to give all the big teams a run for their money!

hopefully will FINALLY make the derby's interesting again haha.

{Ed025's Note - yeah lets hope so SR mate..



18 Jul 2018 12:03:09
Not a rumour from anybody with any inside knowledge, but an Italian Engineer I work with says the general consensus in Italy is that the Alisson deal's done, and he personally reckons that his team (AC Milan) will sell Donarumma to Roma as the replacement. He's just a random Italian dude so take it with a pinch of salt. The Italian equivalent of "Keith down the local says so and so" 😂.

1.) 18 Jul 2018 12:33:57
Allisson bid accepted. £66.8m.

2.) 18 Jul 2018 12:52:12
Sergio down the pizzeria said so MK.

3.) 18 Jul 2018 13:31:46
It was more like "Lorenzo down at the Colloseum said-"

4.) 18 Jul 2018 13:39:02
Lorenzo IS Sergio's cousin and the name of the pizzeria IS The Colloseum, so I was right Adam😜.



10 Jul 2018 08:47:42
Not my rumours, just things I've read this morning.

Taiwo Awoniyi signs a new 5 year deal and and then joins Monaco on loan for 2 years?

Liverpool have contacted Juventus regarding Marko Pjaca and been quoted a price.

1.) 10 Jul 2018 09:00:26
Strange one about Taiwo, not sure how his development will go there. Will he even make the bench? All the best to him and hope it works out and we get a cracking player back. Cheers mk.

2.) 10 Jul 2018 09:29:38
Interesting one for Taiwo, thanks Adam, I think I read the same article earlier!

Makes absolute sense to me. Looks like Brewster is the one who's going to make the step up from the U-23s to the first team squad this season, and Solanke is pretty raw into the first team too.

Nice to give Taiwo a bit of stability and an opportunity to establish himself at a team that is at least Europa league level.

This may have formed part of the Fabinho negotiations as well.

3.) 10 Jul 2018 12:00:34
Eds or anyone that has seen Taiwo Awoniyi play.

Is this guy any good? Will this guy have a future with Liverpool or should we expect that he will be off soon.

I'm usually pretty good at keeping up with youth players but I have no idea what this guy is like as a player.

4.) 10 Jul 2018 12:56:41
Whilst i would be ecstatic about this happening i think the step up to be playing regularly for Monaco is too great a jump.

From what i read it was more the case he was going to remain in belgium but for one of the top teams e. g. Anderlecht. meaning he would be involved in europe.

5.) 10 Jul 2018 13:45:50
Taiwo Awoniyi must be very well thought of.

Im with george t on this one

Anyone seen him play enough to give an assessment on his potential?

6.) 10 Jul 2018 13:49:02
Monaco seems like a strange place for him to go, alright. The quickest way for him to get a work permit is to get into the Nigeria squad, and he'll have to be playing regularly to do that.

As for his playing style, think of Heskey but with more pace and better striking of the ball. The kid has a looooooooooooot of developing to do, though. He was only starting to finally find some consistency of performance last season, and will need to be starting games regularly to continue that.

So yeah TSR, it would make a LOT more sense for him to go to Brugge, Anderlecht, Liège, Gent or Genk. But of course, if he does end up at Monaco, I'll hope he becomes a roaring success and takes Falcao's place etc etc.

7.) 10 Jul 2018 15:49:44
Literally never seen him play aside from YouTube. I always forget about him every season!



02 Jun 2018 13:40:11
Looks like Jack Butland is happening lads. Bookies have seen a huge spike in bets this morning. Someone knows something I reckon, and Macca has backed this move to happen since day one.

1.) 02 Jun 2018 14:13:50
Such a shame, not good enough, never will be.

2.) 02 Jun 2018 14:14:32
Poor choice imo. He he a flapper.

3.) 02 Jun 2018 14:27:32
Christ lads. With fans like you around, who needs enemies .

4.) 02 Jun 2018 14:29:34
Remember the last Keeper we signed after he got relegated?
Me neither.

5.) 02 Jun 2018 14:53:29
Piss poor if you ask me. A position that require a top class performer and we go for a bottom half keeper again.

6.) 02 Jun 2018 14:57:06
Not good enough just like Robertson. Trust in Klopp - he doesn’t get transfers wrong.

7.) 02 Jun 2018 15:03:27
In Klopp we trust. Din everybody groan and sigh when we sign Mane? Butland in hands of Klopp will be a De Gea.

8.) 02 Jun 2018 15:11:38
False equivalency comparing a dodgy keeper with an under rated left back. The flaws in Butlands game are easily exposed and will be time and again. We may as well stick with Karius as he is not a better keeper by any stretch. He has looked shaky AF all season.

9.) 02 Jun 2018 15:13:40
Hope not he’s last choice I’d want. got to be oblak Allison imo.

10.) 02 Jun 2018 15:15:23
L. C Karius in the hands of Klopp needs I say more

It is pointless us sending big money on all different position in the team with a 2nd rate keeper standing behind them. I think we need a top keeper to mount a serious challenge which we haven't had in a long long time.

11.) 02 Jun 2018 15:19:30
Remember a few seasons ago I think the bookies even suspended betting on Ribery joining us. Means nothing.

12.) 02 Jun 2018 15:24:39
I don't put much faith in what bookies say, they are simply out to make money for their companies, however if it's Butland, it's Butland that comes and so be it. If it's true then be prepared for endless days of whinging and whining about it.

13.) 02 Jun 2018 15:34:17
If it's Butland let's give the lad a chance.
And I very much doubt he'll be coming as second choice goalkeeper.

14.) 02 Jun 2018 15:39:07
We don't need a keeper. Kieta mane salah Bobby and the ox running at teams. Just win 8-5 every week.

15.) 02 Jun 2018 15:39:31
If it’s Butland that comes then it’s just more of the same. He’s nowhere near a top class keeper as he’s shown.

16.) 02 Jun 2018 15:48:05
Is that ‘give the lad a chance until he drops an absolute howler in an important match’? You cannot tell me he’s a significant improvement on either of Mignolet or Karius.

17.) 02 Jun 2018 16:15:29
Everyone is entitled to an opinion. its also not moaning and every one of us would get behind him if we sign him. doesn't escape the fact as a goalkeeper he is no better than what we have. And saying Klopp will make him better? How? don't believe Klopp coaches GKs!?

18.) 02 Jun 2018 16:38:31
Not good enough. We haven't had a decent keeper since Reina and it has cost us. Seeing as we're able to offer champions league next season and having reached the final this year, it makes us a more attractive proposition. As such, we should be going all out for someone that is top class. Butland isn't IMO.

19.) 02 Jun 2018 16:42:16
This will be our best signing of the summer by far. I am well excited. Let's hope it happens quick.

20.) 02 Jun 2018 16:47:19
Butland is just an Englishmans karius. Could be worse thought. Could be going for Hart. It's shame we are scrimping on the most important position. But I've seen teams with crap keepers win trophies.

21.) 02 Jun 2018 16:52:59
Here we go again, pushing players out before they’ve even signed. Where have we seen this before? Ox, Salah, mane, VVD, Robertson. All have been tarnished with the ‘ ‘not good enough, never will be’ brush.

Wouldn’t be my pick but I’m not a scout or a top class manager. Butland hasn’t been the same keeper since he came back from injury though he was one of the best in the league a couple of years ago, he’s not short on ability, just needs to get back to his best form.

22.) 02 Jun 2018 16:55:57
Who needs a decent keeper when we will be scoring 5 plus goals every game.

23.) 02 Jun 2018 17:05:39
Farmerfc1515, if that’s the case. Save £40m and play rush goalies instead.

24.) 02 Jun 2018 17:54:16
Rush Goalie!
Haha hahaha
Take me back down memory lane 😂😂😂😂😁😁.

25.) 02 Jun 2018 18:09:34
Haha. Why not! Who needs goalposts as well, just use some bloody jumpers.

26.) 02 Jun 2018 18:09:37
Rush goalies one of the greatest things ever. Fact!

27.) 02 Jun 2018 18:45:32
Ice hockey teams have the option of taking the keeper off to bring on another player. Be fun thing in footy.

28.) 02 Jun 2018 18:47:50
“Robertson is sh*t and will never be good enough”

“Oxlade Chamberlain is sh*t and will never be good enough”

Round and round we go. Trust in the manager? 🤷🏻‍♂️🔴.

29.) 02 Jun 2018 19:02:53
Don't judge butland on last season. Came back from a serious injury.

Imo he has potential. would prefer a of the shelf but not devastated if it's him.

30.) 02 Jun 2018 20:29:27
Absolute madness to spend 80m on a keeper. Everybody goes on about Allison yet we stuck 7 past him. Oblak isn't leaving Madrid. If we do get Butland so be it. Klopp doesn't buy to many duds.

{Ed0333's Note - I totally agree mate. Listen I’m no goalkeeping expert but Becker didn’t look anything like the beast the world keeps telling me about against us. I know he’s highly thought of on here by Ed’s and reds and he maybe be outrageously good but to spunk a world record fee on him would be in my opinion risky. Far better to have 2 decent keepers vying for number 1 and spending the money on Fekir, Dembele etc.

31.) 02 Jun 2018 20:50:42
Typical keyboard warriors on here. Butland, who has yet to make a mistake for Liverpool yet, getting slated in favour of a keeper who has made more mistakes than he’s made saves.

Butland is light years better than Karius and I can’t understand everyone saying he will be no improvement. If we picked up a keeper from the Conference he would be an improvement on Karius.

{Ed0333's Note - good evening Mr Butland didn’t know you frequented the site.

32.) 02 Jun 2018 23:15:13
Redmersey, Butland is a bang average keeper (at best) who is lower table fodder. Fact is that a top class keeper like DeGea wins Man United 15 points a season and that’s what we should be aiming for. Butland has cost Stoke more than that this season with a combination of throwing the ball into his own net, dropping crosses, letting in easy shots (particularly at the near post) and lacking concentration at vital moments as well as the fact that he’s as nimble as a Tiger 2 Tank. So when you say that he hasn’t made mistakes, you could not be any further from the facts. He’s made loads of them. Typical of pretty much every English keeper around. He’s turning into Joe Hart at an alarming rate. So he’s not a significant upgrade on Karius and every mistake that Karius has been pilloried for, Butland has done. Except we’ll pay £40m for the privilege of seeing an Englishman doing it instead.

33.) 02 Jun 2018 23:05:00
I’m not a fan of butland myself as I would be worried about any of the relegated keepers. But we have to ask, behind that defence that went down, would any keeper have looked good?

34.) 03 Jun 2018 08:59:52
Frankly you have been up and down this site slating butland for a couple of weeks now, has he done something in particular to you. 😂

He is a good keeper that just needs to recover his form and confidence. He can be a much better keeper than karius, just needs to prove it. In fact karius maybe needs the close competition to improve himself. Im not opposed to this at all.

35.) 03 Jun 2018 09:56:46
My mate's a avid Stoke fan and recons Butland was a big contributer to their relegation.

For my twopenny worth either upgrade or stick, Butland at best is a slight upgrade and certainly not worth throwing a fair percentage of the budget at.

Becker on the other hand plays the style Klopp wants is young and highly rated by more informed people than us, I can't remember the goals he shipped against us but none were like last weeks.

36.) 03 Jun 2018 10:56:18
Don’t look at next club betting markets, they are so volotile and normally limited to low amounts, it wouldn’t take much to send odds tumbling.



23 May 2018 12:40:45
Ed001, obviously Can will leave and we'll need to find someone new to compete with Hendo for the holding role. My question Is, that if we can't get the first choice player, Ceballos, is there a chance Klopp may give Pedro Chirivella the chance? He was arguably our most successful loanee last season.

Or is it a case of Chirivella not having a future, and would we just move on to someone else we've scouted like Doucoure, Ndidi or Obing?

{Ed001's Note - Chirivella is planned to have a shot at cementing a place during the pre-season friendlies.}

1.) 23 May 2018 12:58:40
Would love it if he took that chance, he's done so well for two years on loan now.

2.) 23 May 2018 13:48:37
Cheers for the insight Ed. Like hjikle, I hope he does well too. He came with a big reputation!

3.) 23 May 2018 14:17:51
I see the consensus on Ceballos is that he would play the deeper lying role. I confess to not seeing anything of him live, I only watch Liverpool.
From what I have seen of him on the one and only YT, I can’t imagine it. I don’t think he has played there before and looks more of a link up player, running with the ball, short passes into forwards etc.
Like I said, I don’t know, only ever get time to watch Liverpool and YouTube as we all know is no real scouting tool but is that what we think is to happen with him if signed?

4.) 23 May 2018 14:35:43
I think he would be a good squad player for next season, keeps the play ticking over and reads the game well.

Obviously if we are bringing in more players then get him out for more experience but I would be upset if we din see him don a Liverpool shirt at some point!

5.) 23 May 2018 14:40:31
If he proves to be good enough, do you think that would cause the club to change their mind on ceballos?

{Ed001's Note - no idea.}

6.) 23 May 2018 16:14:59
I have no idea what position the player prefers barnsey, but he has made 131 senior appearances, and 65 of those he started the game as a deeper midfielder. He has started 38 other games either on the left midfield, attacking midfield or the right midfield. Sub appearance positioms aren't recorded.

He is much better in the deeper midfield roles, because he is not a quick dribbler and doesn't score many goals. He wouldn't fit the attacking roles in our system at all. He is still only very young and has been used as something of a utility player for most of his career so far, but his best position from what I have seen is definitely in a traditional midfield role. I actually think he'd be better in a midfield two myself, alongside Keita or Henderson.

If he was the sole holding player in a midfield 3, he might get overwhelmed at this age, with his lack of experience. The Spanish football fans liken him to Luka Modric. He is basically a midfield playmaker who can also chip in defensively (he loves a tackle), but he can also cover the more attacking roles to an okay level. He's not a pure defensive midfielder for sure, but neither is Henderson. Klopp Doesn't play an orthodox DM.

7.) 23 May 2018 18:38:59
With the window shortened and WC taking place I don't think the club will take a risk. They will go for Ceballos if not another player of his mould. Seriously it's going to affect the youngsters as Ed001 pointed earlier.

8.) 23 May 2018 22:11:29
Spot on, Barnes. Never seen Ceballos play BU I watched some youtube highlights and a DLM, he is not, I'm afraid. Maybe others can help me here.

9.) 23 May 2018 23:47:08
Brover, you have to remember that a YouTube highlight reel will focus primarily on goals and assists. Most of these came whilst he was playing in attacking positions (naturally) . So his YouTube highlights only tend to show him in games he played further forward. It would be a boring highlight reel if it was him intercepting a passes, making tackles and playing a forward pass to the attacking midfielders.

You'd have to research him more extensively than YouTube. Watch him in full games. Read detailed scout reports and player profiles etc. YouTube only picks out exciting bits and doesn't comprehensively cover everything about any player.

10.) 24 May 2018 03:57:25
So true MK - he's one of our most important players but have you looked at a Henderson highlight reel recently 😂.

11.) 24 May 2018 07:48:10
It's a shame that with the shortened window, it's less likely chiravella will get a shot to prove himself.

12.) 24 May 2018 20:06:17
@ SGRed - I actually looked at a Henderson highlight reel a few weeks back to compare it to a Jorginho highlight reel, and I have to say Henderson looked better.

And I think they were done by the same person.

It did contain virtually all of his attacking play this season, tbf, but how do I know the Jorginho one didn't contain all of his attacking play?

13.) 25 May 2018 03:00:04
I nearly feel asleep at the one I saw of him. Tackle, pass, tackle, pass and a few excellent diagonal balls thrown in.

Not knocking the guy, I think he’s outstanding but frankly speaking the deeper role just doesn’t make for an exciting YouTube video IMO. If it does, they’re probably doing it wrong and taking too much risk!

Welcome to 2020. Where accidental and deliberate handball are the same thing. Where you are offside if you are in line. Where you can score a winning goal after the full time whistle. Where hospitalising an opponent with dangerous play is not a red card. Where a goal a yard over the line can't be given unless your watch buzzes. Welcome to the year I fell out of love with football; if that's what this still is.

{Ed025's Note - nice little piece that MK, kudos mate..

1.) 17 Oct 2020 20:25:57
Cheers Ed025. Ignoring the obvious foul play today (and i include Mane diving and Robbo kicking out in that mate) it was much closer than in recent years. I know there have been draws in the last decade but today felt like a game you weren't struggling to stay in. Pickford is a lucky boy though. Can't say i've seen a worse tackle than that in a while but it is what it is. Pickford knows what he did and probably regrets it already. Joe Gomez has his time to step up and lead the line now. I am really struggling to love football this last 12 months though. I even hate the new kick-off format. Just changes for the sake of it. What was wrong with football in the last 20 years?

{Ed025's Note - they have tried to fix something that was,nt broken MK and it has stood the test of time for over a century, i believe pickfordgate was reckless rather than malicious though mate but thats only my view, i must say im enjoying football at the moment but if i could pass on a bit of advice to the FA it would be...dont try and teach your grandmother how to suck eggs..

2.) 17 Oct 2020 21:29:02
agree 100% Ed025.



30 Sep 2020 17:10:45
Hoping to see mostly the same team that beat Lincoln tomorrow night. Maybe Gomez in for Rhys. W and Milner in for the injured Tsimikas. Jota probably warrants a start also. I want to win a domestic cup this year. They're the only trophies missing from Klopp's time at the club now.

1.) 30 Sep 2020 17:37:26
What's up, MK? Log time, No see. 'Hope you are well, my friend.

{Ed025's Note - just sobered up after the league winning celebrations?..

2.) 30 Sep 2020 17:55:52
Hey MK Scouser, i hope all is well with you. I have been regularly coming to this site since days of torres sale to Chelsea and when Suarez and Carrol were brought in.

Along with Ed001 analysis, i used to look forward to your post analysing matches and players. I hope you continue to do it, if time permits you.

Have a great day.

3.) 30 Sep 2020 17:59:51
Is this Adam or an imposter? I thought we went by Plain bread these days 🤔.

4.) 30 Sep 2020 18:00:02
I’ll be honest MK, I’m not fussed about the domestic cups. Let Pep have them. We should concentrate on the big prizes. If we go through, fine. But not upset if we go out. Btw, great to see you back.

5.) 30 Sep 2020 18:05:22
If this is the one and only original MK Scouser then it’s a pleasure to have you back good sir.

I started visiting this site the January we signed Carrol and Suarez (9 years ago! ) and would also Ctrl F to find your posts most days!

Red Sandman.

6.) 30 Sep 2020 18:07:10
I'd definitely want to see Jota in there so we can start to see what he brings AND get some value from the transfer. He had a good start the other night and I want to see more!

7.) 30 Sep 2020 18:14:31
I'm all good Red Meister. I never really went away. Just been posting under different names to keep a low profile. Few personal issues that i never properly resolved until recently but i'm the best i've felt in years now.

Appreciate that Nitesh, maybe i'll get back to them in time!

The one and only WYred!

Thanks 6times. Although i'm feeling greedy this year. I want all the silverware!

{Ed025's Note - nice to see you back MK..

8.) 30 Sep 2020 18:21:36
Pre-C.V. the cup finals were a day trip to Wembley for fans and players alike, something this club (or any other) shouldn't turn their nose up at (unless there are extenuating circumstances) .
When did we last win the FA Cup? Was it 2006. the Stevie final?
14 years is the longest we've gone without winning it since we first got our name on the trophy in 1965.
While the domestic cups aren't a burning priority any more, they are still there for us to win.

9.) 30 Sep 2020 18:23:27
I've been in the shadows Sandman! I've nearly had more usernames than Harry. YNWAdam, YNWA (Adam), East Midlands Scouser, MK Scouser, Plain Bread, Harveys Man Bun etc.

I said a few silly things on here during a negative period in my life and i just wanted to be judged for who i am rather than who people thought i was. It was actually Stoneage who inspired me to reveal myself again when he asked about me last week.

I hope people can forgive my 2015-2018 behaviour. I make no excuses.

10.) 30 Sep 2020 18:35:21
Nice to have you back MK 👍🏻.

Lol knew that was you using HMB. Glad you're doing well these days mate!

12.) 30 Sep 2020 19:07:51
Nice to know you are doing well, MK lad. Stay safe and keep posting maybe with your REAL user profile this time. Peace and Love.

Yeah nice to know for sure it’s you, there were a few longer HMB posts where I was convinced it was you but thought you were under another name. No need to hide around here, welcome back.

Waro, are you going to take the opportunity now to reveal yourself as Zoom?

17.) 30 Sep 2020 20:09:10
Glad your on the up MK, and good to see you never really went away as I've always enjoyed your posts/ articles.

18.) 30 Sep 2020 20:23:26
Always thought hmb and plain bread spoke sense (can be a rarity at times) glad you're okay mk, had lots of name changes too, I always valued your opinion mate.

19.) 30 Sep 2020 20:25:00
But yeah, it'd be nice to win the league Cup and fa Cup too. I think we now have a squad capable of pushing on all fronts. Where as before klopp was forced to push for the big two (and get em :) )

20.) 30 Sep 2020 20:33:38
Nice to see you back Adam (even if you never really left)
Just need Ken Aguero back now and the band will be back together again.

In light of this new found transparency, I will reveal that I am Macca. And that Kalidou Koulibaly is due to fly into Keith Lemon Airport on Friday for talks because we now sign 29 year olds.

22.) 30 Sep 2020 21:12:09
I don't think we will be too pushed on winning the League Cup, though I think we should go for it as it is out of the way early in the season, but if we aren't going to make a run of it then I'd love to see Everton win it.
I know some people will find that unpalatable but we all have opinions.

Just saw this morning that Salah has won back possession in the final 3rd on 32 occassions this season; more than any other player.

Salah 32
Kante 31
Redmond 28
Richarlison 26

(Madness that Kante is in that list when he plays predominantly in the middle 3rd! )

Not sure how relevant it is. Just surprised me he was ahead of Bobby and Mane who seem to be universally accepted as the harder working forwards in our side.

{Ed001's Note - they tend to track back more, so I would think they would have better stats in the middle and defensive third instead.}

1.) 24 Mar 2019 09:43:01
That's a good point Ed001. Just shows how lucky we are to have 3 forwards who all score double figures, but also put in an almighty shift all over the park.

I wouldn't swap any of them to be honest. They're so perfect for Klopp's style and the hustke and bustle of English football.

Whilst I've got you, I've been really impressed with Salah staying on his feet lately. He seems to have gone from going down easily to being impossible to bring down at all. Has Klopp had a word do you think?

{Ed001's Note - yes and he did so publicly as well remember.}

2.) 24 Mar 2019 11:07:28
I don't really pay much attention to pressers to be honest mate! Glad Klopp got the message across either way. I don't actually think he was diving by definition. There was always contact. But he was going down too easily and it was bound to bite us on the backside eventually. He's good enough to just ride the challenges anyway.

3.) 24 Mar 2019 13:48:02
Nice stat, OP. This is why those judging Salah based on goals alone, are doing him and the rest of the front three a HUGE disservice and is an insult to them for all they do for us apart from scoring goals.



07 Feb 2019 19:47:13
One thing I don't get about this media frenzy is the Clyne debate. "Klopp made a mistake" they say; implying that we've somehow drawn our last two games due to a weakness at right back.

From where I was sitting, Leicester and West Ham didn't score any goals from attacks down our right. The Leicester goal was a stupid mistake from Robbo, compounded by lazy defending from Virgil. Not a dig at those guys, as they've earned the odd mistakes.

The West Ham goal was a cheap free kick by Fabinho, Keita getting blatantly fouled by Noble, and Robertson passing the buck to Keita even though he clearly saw what West Ham were trying to do down his flank from the set piece.

Now forgive me for my ignorance here, but in what world would Clyne have prevented those goals? It's bad form from our normally reliable stars. They are human.

We've had a wobble. City had theirs. This is ours. City bounced back. Let's see if we do. If anything Clyne would've made it worse! Nothing more to discuss 🤷‍♂️.

1.) 07 Feb 2019 20:02:37
Agreed MK. In fact I was thinking earlier about this - yes, we have massively missed Trent the last few games. But I would say we’ve missed his attacking talents more than anything. It’s made us a bit ‘lobsided’ in a way.

Clyne play’s RB, but he isn’t remotely the same type of player as Trent. Also, in my estimation, Milner is a better full back than Clyne - which is probably why Klopp let him go without replacement.

I think Trent not being there has certainly been the problem - missing Clyne (who has played maybe 4/ 5 times 2 seasons) is just a lazy excuse for any ‘issues’ in my opinion.

Sometimes a player just can’t be replaced like for like and you have to make do!

{Ed025's Note - i dont know why you are all looking for excuses, its a blip thats all and it happens..

2.) 07 Feb 2019 20:03:57
I agree. Clyne would have made no difference to either result!

3.) 07 Feb 2019 20:32:48
Just need some players back TAA, then either Gini or Hendo would make us much stronger for the weekend. Then I think we get a much needed break to re group.

4.) 07 Feb 2019 20:48:02
Spot on, MK. It's the Sakho thingy all over again. When we win, he was a non factor, . Whenever we did not win, it's cos Sahko wasn' there. First it was Sahko, then it was Buvac and now it's Clyne. These fans are being "worked" over by the media floating out BS talking points and they don't even bother to do their own research and use facts in their own judgement. Let's start from the beginning.

Clyne had not played a game for LFC since May, 2018 till the Utd game. Where were we in the PL table? We were two points behind City. Clyne was a non factor. We were top of the PL AGAIN, w/ o Clyne in the squad. So now that Clyne got loaned out and we had two draws, not losses, the reason we are struggling is cos Clyne who has been a non factor all season, got loaned out.

What I want to ask these people is would Clyne playing RB have stopped VVD and Milner from being ill? Stopped Bobbie from having a wretched game vs WH or stopped Lovs re-injuring his hamstring? If the answer is no then these people are just blowing smoke up people's behinds and talking out their backside and such people should stop wasting our time. As Ed25 said, it's a blip, end of story.

P/ S: As a RB, Clyne is not better than Hendo, Milner TAA or Fab hence, Klopp was right to get shot of him as he is dreadful.

5.) 07 Feb 2019 20:51:47
I think some of the criticism refers to the restriction that a slower (Milner / Henderson) full back gives the team when it’s specifically set up to allow very advanced wide attacks from both full backs.
Not to mention the lack of coordination with the rest of the defensive unit.
Add to that the knock on effect on the midfield, and the 1-on1 danger that some wide opponents pose and there you go?
It’s just unlucky that the spate of injuries happened together but I think we always knew that our squad strength was not quite there.
I’m really hoping that the return of most of the injured can keep us up there.

6.) 07 Feb 2019 21:18:19
Juicer, here is the prob with part of your argument. Clyne has been irrelevant all season so how did he suddenly become a factor when he is gone whereas he was a NONE factor when he was here for the first 5 months of the season. You cannot discount that fact, man. Secondly, Clyne was let go a week BEFORE TAA got injured. Klopp prolly thought he had enough cover w/ Milner, Fab and even Hendo if it came to it.

Then, they got injured or ill. How could Klopp have known about this before hand and how could he have known that Gomez's absence would last this long? We cannot keep acting like these things did not happen and keep howling to the moon about how Clyne (a poor defender and a non factor all season long) was let go?

Bottom line like you said, is that we were hurt with injuries and bad luck (Hendo, Wiji had knocks b4 the WH game and Lovs and Gomez had setbacks) . It happens and frankly, we have done well to not have lost while they've been gone. Not many teams can survive half your back line and your starting midfield being out REGARDLESS of the squad you have. Time to move on from this Clyne false narrative cos it has NO basis in logic.

7.) 07 Feb 2019 21:39:29
RedWolf, it’s not my argument really mate, I was just playing devils advocate.
Clyne did a job against Man Utd so people are bound to say why not against Palace, Leicester and West Ham?
It’s clear that Clyne wasn’t part of Klopp’s plans unless absolutely necessary and unfortunately it could be said that that time has been the past few weeks.
My problem was the lack of pace we’ve had at RFB in TAA’s absence. At least Clyne does offer that.

Anyway it’s time we all got back together and stopped ripping each other up. The team are not bottlers, they weren’t in 13 / 14 (if anything too bold! ) and let’s bring back that atmosphere and start enjoying it again.

8.) 07 Feb 2019 21:49:48
We have looked really weak at right back for me, despite the fact no goals have come from this side it has given teams an incentive to attack us as we look like we finally have a weakness and beatable. The defence has looked really unstable as well and right back has to be part of that. I think hendo did ok all things considered and Milner less so given that they are not really suited to the role but I don’t think Clyne would have done any better either so it’s just one of them, glad he’s left the club and wish him well but he’s a terrible player.

9.) 07 Feb 2019 21:54:20
I can’t believe Pep spent £60mil on yet another winger (Mahrez) and neglected to buy a back up to Fernandinho. What a huge mistake that is!
I also can’t believe Utd didn’t buy any centre backs or Arsenal get just one decent defender at the club.
I can’t believe Spurs didn’t buy anyone and let Dembele (their best midfielder for me) go for a song.
The list goes on and on with all clubs.
The fact is Clyne was not part of our plans, on a high wage and because he wasn’t part of the plans he asked to leave.
We have 4 players at the club who can all play the position just as well or better than Clyne. 5 if you count Robbo.
We’ve just been unlucky with illness and injury of late, nothing to do with a lack of right backs.

10.) 07 Feb 2019 22:54:26
Its about a balanced team with players playing in positions they are comfortable at.

Defensively against Crystal Palace, Leicester and West Ham we were not solid compared to the form we had shown in our previous games.

There can be a lot of factors such as the extra pressure of winning games, players having a small dip in form etc, but the difference defensively was we had a midfielder playing at the right back position.

Take the game against Manchester United for example, with Clyne I thought we were more solid at the back as we had a balanced defense. Also against Brighton, with TAA I thought we were much more organised at the back.

11.) 07 Feb 2019 22:55:26
No prob, Juicer. By the way, i was not ripping you apart. i was just stating a point of view that it seemed you were missing. The thing is I am sick and tired of people spouting/ parroting the same old revisionist/ hindsight nonsense put out there by the media about Clyne suddenly being the reason we have drawn two games whereas these same people did not know he existed prior to his leaving. Pretty sure had we won these games, Clyne would have been a non issue and a non starter for these guys and these same fans would not have cared, as they have NEVER cared about him all season. Either way, let's get behind the team full go till the end of the season. YNWA, man!

12.) 07 Feb 2019 22:59:15
Clyne was crap that’s why he’s been sold! We have better at the club. Mark Noble didn’t foul keita it was a well worked block. And eds25 is right it’s a blip that’s all!

13.) 07 Feb 2019 23:19:53
A blip. An unbeaten blip!

14.) 08 Feb 2019 03:32:27
Fact is that noone has a clue whether the same scoreline would’ve occurred if Clyne had played. He couldn't shoot, cross or tackle but he did have pace which may, or may not, have changed a few scenarios in our favour.
Also, as utterly unlikely as it sounds, he couldve had a worldie and run past six players before bulletting into the top corner.
My point is that it is pure speculation and opinion from pundits and posters alike but the scoreline remains as it is.

15.) 08 Feb 2019 03:57:23
I think it was more to do with Milner having to be a RB instead of being in midfield, is what a lot of the griping is about.

{Ed001's Note - I would rather have Milner at right back than Clyne, he made the goal with his cross while Clyne would have punted it into row Z.}

16.) 08 Feb 2019 08:17:32
Like A Virgil, it is not even opinion punditry nor speculation. It is pure fallacy, rooted in complete bluster and drivel. As I have laid out on this thread, if Clyne was a non-factor for 98% of the season before he left then how can he be a factor now when he was sold or loaned out? Cos we drew two games? Those two statements cannot be correct at the same time hence, total crap logic from people who are only interested in creating chaos, end of.

17.) 08 Feb 2019 13:15:14
I think its quite clear, redwolf, that they have suggested that if Clyne had stayed and played those two draws at right back we might have won them. You clearly disagree with it but it is still an opinion whether you like it or not.
Look into the multiverse and there's a parallel reality where Clyne played for us versus Leicester and scored the winner and Alan Shearer smugly told the world why Nathaniel should always start before Milner, Fab and Hendo at right back.
We ousted Clyne so we will never know if he could have affected the game but opinions can be based on suppositions which means neither you or Shearer are correct or wrong.

18.) 08 Feb 2019 14:12:24
{Ed025's Note - i don't know why you are all looking for excuses, its a blip that's all and it happens.
I won't even call it a blip ed025, we didn't lose, we drew with a very competitive strong sides who have taken all 3 points from other top 6 sides .
The expectation is ludicrously high. they expect the team to win every game. Not possible, Fergie in United glory days when no one was even close to them could n't do it.

January window is fantastic for a good laugh.

Top four transfer stories:
1. Some MLS player to Newcastle.
2. Crouch to Burnley over 50's.
3. Otto who was at Wolves anyway signs for Wolves.
4. Harry Redknapp refuses to try a Big Mac with bacon.

Riveting stuff. Jim White must be gutted 😂 last minute deals to sign Werner and Rabiot?

Thanks Ed002. Wild suggestion/ question incoming. Could we register Shaqiri in the FA Cup and Champions League squad (but not Grujic), and then register Grujic in the Premier League squad (but not Shaqiri)? Purely hypothetical. I was just wondering if we will have a very upset player sat in the u23's if we can't sell/ loan one of them in time.

Kelleher should play in my opinion.

Amidst all the Pickford-gate debate, people completely overlooked the fact that Adrian threw another goal in at the weekend. I could have stopped Keanes header.

Just hope Thiago is okay. He is a game changer for us. We can cope without Virgil if Thiago is in the side because he keeps possession, controls the tempo and shields the defence. Elite level. The United supporters celebrating Thiago and Virgil's injuries are not football fans. These are the players people pay to watch and English football will struggle to attract the best players if this is the advert we put out as a 'great game'.

Both good individuals in my opinion. Matip is due a full season!

The way i see it, City always had a better midfield and we had the better frontline, Keeper and defence. For City it is Silva leaving and Laporte back from injury. For Liverpool it is Van Dijk injured and Thiago signing. I think with this we now have the better midfield and they now have the better defence. Either way we still have the better frontline and keeper.

City and Liverpool are still the teams to beat. Spurs, Everton and Arsenal all look good but i can't see them making a title challenge just yet. If any of them, Spurs are closest.

Matip and Gomez would start for any other team in the league.

Van Dijk and Laporte are a cut above the rest but after that, there is nothing between about 20 centre backs. Gomez and Matip will do fine if Matip can stay fit. Fabinho is also a more than capable deputy, and Nat Phillips might be called on more than we thought he would be now.

We're good enough to cope without Virgil. It is just a leveller. It brings our defence back down to a level in line with the rest of the top 8. So our forwards need to make sure they take their chances now.
