Have we any interest in Salif Sane from Hannover. Been watching a bit more Bundesliga this year and he seems excellent. Currently has the third highest rating in the Bundesliga.

He’s a big strong Senegalese CB, wins lots of aerial battles and has 6 MOTM this season. Older than some we have been linked to but looks excellent.


{Ed001's Note - not heard of any interest from us in him.}

So after two very poor performances will Klopp swing the axe and shake things up?
Karius has to come back, Gomez must replace TAA and either Klavan or Lovren for the inept Matip.
I read last night ome great posts on playing Hendo and Ox as the two, Mane and Salah on the wings which I think is a great shout. Can and Wini have had enough chances and if nothing else dropping them in a World Cup year might put a well deserved rocket up their backsides.
Another great shout on one of the pages was Ings up top who is a terrier and deserves a chance and a Firminho playing in a free role.
It’s Huddersfield next so we’re not expecting all out attack against us. Klopp needs to start shaking things up and showing players that abject performances will not be tolerated. A few games in the bench for Can and Wini might just change their attitudes, hopefully for the better.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 10:16:41
Dropping gini won't perk him up for the world cup as he's watching from his couch anyway. TAA I think would be worth playing tonight as he's better going forward than gomez. Is tonight a chance to play gomez CB with VVD? Klopps stated tactics were to blame against Swansea so expect a formation change, I doubt a 442 or 4411 but possibly 3 at the back or 4132. On the transfer front, no more in this window, shame we didn't challenge for PEA. I'm the summer, a gk, cdm and a striker to replace studge and probably ings departures.

2.) 30 Jan 2018 10:16:58
The problem is this. Bringing Henderson back in is probably sensible, now that he is over his latest injury, but then who if you drop both Can and Wijnaldum, it means almost certainly that James Milner will play in centre midfield and he is a liability at the best of times in that position.

3.) 30 Jan 2018 10:19:13
I'd go Klavan, solid, unspectacular and until he was dropped, had cut out making silly mistakes. Never thought I would say that but there you go.

4.) 30 Jan 2018 10:33:57
Mr Dennis. reread the original post. he clearly states both hendo and the Ox in midfield to replace Gini and can and a switch to 442 risk formation. Milner wouldn't need to start

5.) 30 Jan 2018 11:08:47
Klopp isn't going to go 442, he isn't Roy Hodgson.

{Ed001's Note - he has gone 4-4-2 quite a few times.}

6.) 30 Jan 2018 11:13:27
Shake things up?!

With what?!

Have you seen our bench?

7.) 30 Jan 2018 11:52:26
Mr Dennis, as ED001 has alluded to Klopp has already tried this formation a few times this season, and with Keita arriving in the summer you should expect it to happen more often! 442 isn't a bad way of setting up a modern team, ask athletico Madrid and Leicester city. rather than assuming only a dinasuar like Roy Hodson would use it 😉.

8.) 30 Jan 2018 13:01:39
Formations don't win matches . Players do.
Good players
Clever players
Hungry players
Find a way to win
Do we have them?
Not sure.

9.) 30 Jan 2018 13:03:46
The difference is this, the title winning Leicester side had and current Atletico side have the players to be able sit back and soak up pressure when needed as both played on the counter and soaked up pressure, we lack any players that have that ability. Not one of our midfielders are at the level of Kante (who was so good that the team felt like it was having two players instead of one and he even made Drinkwater look like a footballer) or Niguez and Koke. Not one of our midfielders are as good as those players or ever will be, name me one midfielder that we have that even comes close? It is like entering an Austin Maestro into a grand prix and hoping to win.

{Ed001's Note - would it be the MG version of the Maestro though?}

10.) 30 Jan 2018 14:56:22
Shake things up in Kevin Murphy's box of rice (musical instrument) obviously mate :)

11.) 30 Jan 2018 15:25:37
For me the 4-3-3 is the best formation for us.

The issue for me is the lack of creativity and protection offered from our midfield 3. Hendo on his day can offer both of these things but since his string of injuries has failed to show his true ability.

Coutinho obviously offered the creativity to feed clever balls to the front 3 in tight spaces. This has been our main issue in the last 2 games against teams who are happy to sit and defend. We have had a huge percentage of the possession but it has all been slow and sideways.

In terms of protection I can't remember the last time that we had a quality DM who would sit there and help out the defence. Can and Wijnaldum have both had a go without much success. I don't know the number of goals that have resulted from Can giving the ball away in bad positions but from memory there have been several.

Keita will be a huge bonus when he joins but for me we will still need a 3rd quality central midfielder to play alongside Hendo (if he can prove himself fit and refind his form) and Keita.

If we can get in a top quality CM and a top quality GK for next season I would be a happy man.

12.) 30 Jan 2018 15:33:17
Hahaha Ed001 my mate had an mg maestro turbo not so long ago, was a bit of a state though.

{Ed001's Note - had it won any grands prix?}

13.) 30 Jan 2018 16:52:42
I think you’re spelling prix wrong Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - ah could be mate.}

14.) 30 Jan 2018 18:26:04
I think against the teams who sit deep and we struggle to break down I would like to see him swap Salah and Mane on the wings (I know they're preferred is to cut in) but having them on the wing and they're favoured foot on the outside will stop having them need to cut in where its always jam packed, I think this would solve a load of problems breaking these teams down - what's everyones thoughts.

15.) 30 Jan 2018 20:43:48
Cialb - I like how you are trying to think outside the box. Personally I think that would leave Firmino isolated in the middle and would also clog up the space our fullbacks would be running into. I suppose the fullbacks could move centrally in attack much like Lahm did at Bayern but Im not sure we have the players for that. TAA maybe but our left side I doubt.

16.) 31 Jan 2018 07:46:44
No Ed001 it didn’t win any Grand Prix, although it may have stood a chance after After god had spent years corroding the body away in an attempt to make it lighter and more competitive on the track.

{Ed001's Note - they were obviously designed for racing lightness being so easily corroded. I think the design team must have used rust to get round homologation issues and road legality.}



12 Nov 2017 10:49:19
Papers now claiming Can heading to City in the summer.


1.) 12 Nov 2017 11:51:56
'papers' says it all mate.

2.) 12 Nov 2017 12:02:27
And Sky Sports as well.

3.) 12 Nov 2017 13:39:11
Please Pep.
take him now.


4.) 12 Nov 2017 16:39:24
Then he should be dropped to the reserves for the rest of the season as his heart isn’t in it.

5.) 12 Nov 2017 17:27:19
Good shout Mr Dennis, can’t wait for Naby to join next season after a year in Liepzig’s reserves.

6.) 12 Nov 2017 20:05:21
I thought players can't agree anything pre contract wise from the same league or country.

7.) 12 Nov 2017 21:07:33
let him go nobody bigger than the club.

8.) 12 Nov 2017 21:40:22
As far as I’m concerned Can has made a decision that he doesn’t see his future at Liverpool. He sees it at Man City, which is fine. But since he has been a liability at times this season, his place would be better taken by Grujic who will be here next season. Can should be a bench warmer at best.

9.) 12 Nov 2017 22:11:29
I can't see him going to city, if he's worried about a long term starting spot then they would be a disaster for him. I can't see anything other than a free transfer to Juve in the summer.

10.) 13 Nov 2017 00:54:04
Amazing how people just believe whatever the papers say and launch into a player without any confirmation, even though these reports constantly get shown as rubbish.

11.) 13 Nov 2017 12:17:08
Hahaha he won't start at Man City. Gundogan doesn't start and only makes the old cameo how the hell will Can see the field behind him, Fernandinho, Yaya even!

{Ed002's Note - Gundogan ruptured his Cruciate Ligament keeping him pout for 9 months.}

12.) 13 Nov 2017 13:40:02
Damn fair enough Ed! I'd just rather see Can move abroad.

{Ed002's Note - Once he has left Liverpool it should be unimportant to you.}

13.) 13 Nov 2017 14:06:00
Tell that to Chelsea fans re Nemanja Matić.

14.) 13 Nov 2017 14:06:46
Of course.

15.) 13 Nov 2017 22:57:08
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.

16.) 14 Nov 2017 12:35:16
Faithinworks that is why I don’t get the abuse. He is still putting in a shift, might not always be a good one but by all accounts the situation is one of he wants to be playing and the recruitment policy suggests to him that he won’t be a regular next season. Nowhere near the situation of Coutinho s amazing success in ruining his standing with the fans.



25 Oct 2017 20:52:07
Ed001, do think Klopp will actually make big changes in defense and in goal at weekend as is being discussed in the papers? Or have you heard any whispers that he’s willing to try other options?


{Ed001's Note - I expect him to, he was furious at the weekend. The only worry is that he might calm down and pull back from making those big changes once he has had time to think about it. Certainly his initial plan was to change things, however I wouldn't hold my breath as people often change their mind. I remember one club owner said straight after a match that he was going to sack the manager in the morning. He calmed down over night and changed his mind, leaving me looking an arse as I said the manager would be gone the next day.}

1.) 25 Oct 2017 22:04:33
Yes sometimes a cooling down period is not a good idea.

2.) 26 Oct 2017 06:21:52
I'm a big fan of Klopp and his personality is infectious but I agree that he is not beyond crtitcism and I think this weekends selection could be the making or breaking of him. If he makes the decisions everyone knows are correct and we don't get the result then it's going to go down a lot better with fans than if he allows the continued errors of his ways cloud his judgement with formation, team selection and the way we play.

3.) 26 Oct 2017 15:06:48
Surely the result is more important than the team selection, no one will care about the team selected if we win 5-0, regardless of who plays. However if he picks the same team and we don’t get a result then questions will be asked.

4.) 26 Oct 2017 16:16:47
It really is time for Klopp to decide who remains in employment by Liverpool - himself or Mignolet and Lovren. If he keeps picking them then he will get the sack and any new manager will probably get rid of them anyway. Loyalty does not exist in football.

5.) 27 Oct 2017 23:07:58
Klopp came out today and said Mignolet starts tomorrow. I can't get my head around it at all.



23 Oct 2017 04:25:06
So does anyone actually know why Klopp persists with Migs? Are Ward and Karius so bad in training or what is the reason?

This is a 100% genuine question, Ed01 have you heard anything mate?


{Ed001's Note - I honestly do not know the answer to this, it surprises me as everything that I have heard says that he wants to sell him. Ward and Karius were meant to be fighting it out for the no 1 spot. I know both of them are unhappy and have spoken to Klopp about that, but there is nothing else that is stopping them getting the jersey. Both have impressed in training from what I have been told. This is one thing I just do not understand. It is confusing to say the least. Klopp surely can't think the fans will just jump on either's back after 2 games like they did last season and call for Mignolet's return now can he? Mind the knee jerk reactionary tools who did that last season have such short memories, they will no doubt be dragging out nonsense like 'Migs is a good shotstopper' the minute either keeper doesn't make an impossible save!}

1.) 23 Oct 2017 08:47:52
He has too give ward a proper chance mignolet has proved he is a flapper and not up too it, we already have let our best defender leave in sakho, for all we know ward could b a quality keeper for us we don't want him leaving as well.

2.) 23 Oct 2017 10:20:54
The problem is Mignolet is so bad in every aspect of goalkeeping so i don't see what he can possibly see in him.
Klopp persisted with a very average GK in Dortmund for many years as well in Weindefeller who i though was not a good Goalkeeper, its worrying and if Karius or Ward doesn't start vs Huddersfield then i think Klopp has lost the plot. Mignolet should have been dropped for ever after the horrible game he had vs Leicester despite us winning after he saved a penalty he himself gave away with ridiculous goalkeeping. Starting Mignolet or Lovren anytime soon will just tell the rest of the squad it doesn't matter what they do because the favorites will always be picked.

3.) 23 Oct 2017 10:23:46
Your not telling me Ward wouldn't be up for it against Huddersfield, perfect game for him to start, he should be given the chance now until the end of the season then it can be decided who is to go, Gomez looked like the senior cb yesterday too and Matip looked lost as usual, he should stay there too, it was good to finally see Klopp coming out and saying things against his defenders, lacking a leader and organisation, January will be a big month.

4.) 24 Oct 2017 13:26:34
Like I said before (just my opinion), I think the problem stems from within the club. How can two totally different managers (BR) make the exact same mistakes? Does that not strike anyone as odd?

5.) 25 Oct 2017 07:13:50
Migs has had his chance.
Give karius a run of games not 1 here and there. If after 6 games or so there is no improvement throw ward in there for a spell. Simple.

Hey Ed, ever think of adding a FAQ page, apologies if this is a FAQ 😜.


{Ed001's Note - we did have one for a while but no one ever bothered reading it and continued to ask the same questions anyway, so we gave up.}

1.) 23 Feb 2018 14:47:49
Have you thought about a player database with the Eds comments on it?

So each player that the Eds comment on gets a page and on each page is the last thing an Ed said about that player across all the football pages.

So for example someone comes to the Liverpool page and wants to ask about Dybala. They see the link to the player database and seach for Dybala. This goes to the Dybala page where the Eds last few comments concerning Dybala from all of your sites are recorded.

Just a though, no idea how complicated it would be to administer, probably take at least an hour or so each day once set up.

{Ed002's Note - It would not be viable I am afraid. There is the search engine that works fine.}

2.) 24 Feb 2018 03:00:10
how about a check list that comes up when you post:

- no questions will be answered that state ' what are the chances of'
- have you at least attempted to read a couple of the posts?
- no random names cos he scored in your fifa team




22 Feb 2018 07:27:24
In case anyone thinks not spending big on a top keeper is very important, DeGea just kept Man Utd in the CL. What a performance, a truly top top class keeper and proof even with some poor players around him he can almost single handily keep them in the competition. A true one man show there. 👏 👏 👏, take a bow son.


1.) 22 Feb 2018 07:38:56
Yeah I'm hoping they lose him because without him last night they'd of lost by a pretty decent margin. He's saved them in so many results this season, he will be almost impossible to replace.

2.) 22 Feb 2018 07:42:38
Best keeper in the world right now IMO.

3.) 22 Feb 2018 08:45:36
It was a poor finish, no way he should of given the keeper a chance from that far out.

4.) 22 Feb 2018 09:05:13
Remember his first season where impatient United were on his back demanding he is dropped/ sold because he's so rubbish? And Fergie having to drop him to protect him from the criticism?

5.) 22 Feb 2018 09:08:20
De Gea has won man utd player of the year 3 times. Schmeichel never won it once. That’s a true reflection of where that club is right now.

6.) 22 Feb 2018 09:17:31
Hjikle, i remember them wanting him dropped for Romero 18 months ago, never mind his first season 😂 give them Mignolet for a month so they appreciate what they have.

7.) 22 Feb 2018 09:22:40
Hjikle, De Gea has shown huge strength of character, he got a lot more abuse than other keepers got or get now, but used it positively to turn himself into one of the best goal keepers on the planet. To be fair to him he was playing for the biggest club in PL history and one of the biggest on the planet. He was also being compared to one of the greatest GK that ever played the game in Schmichael.

8.) 22 Feb 2018 09:47:55
Mcgoveb I personally don't think it is important to spend big on a keeper it is more important to sign the right keeper regardless of cost
if Oblak or allison were to cost us for argument sake for 70m each or Navas was available on a free (which I know he is not) which deal would make more sense to complete?
Think we sometimes get caught up in spending loads of money means success, it doesn't always.
I personally hope Karius proves we don't need a new keeper just like De gea proved to Man U.

{Ed025's Note - please dont mention karius and de gea in the same sentence john..

9.) 22 Feb 2018 09:20:48
I’m hoping they get conned into accepting Navas as part of a swap deal. That would be a top result for us!

10.) 22 Feb 2018 09:29:17
We should be looking at a top class keeper in the Summer.

11.) 22 Feb 2018 10:22:55
No matter how top class they are Harry there is actually no keeper out there who is as good as De Gea, he is the best of the best, Alisson might one day reach his level but i strongly doubt our chances with 1. the price he would cost after Roma feel butthurt because we are paying them only 50 million € for Salah, 2. PSG, Real Madrid and Barcelona interested in him. 3. The player himself would probably love to move to Spain or Paris (with all the brazilians in their team)

12.) 22 Feb 2018 12:15:00
It was a poor finish as Mighty Reds said. As a striker (which I was for a while), you are coached to head a ball like that down into the ground as the GK is expecting the header to be in the air. Muriel (a poor striker) made it easy for him so there's that.

Also, if you are comparing our GK to DDG then you will always be disappointed cos it took him 5/ 6 seasons to be this great after struggling (Yes, he DID struggle) for the first 18 months to the point of getting benched. You have to account for that history knowing that regardless of who you get, he will need time and frankly, I don't care what other GK's or players do cos it does not impact me nor how my team performs in any way.

What we should be doing is to see if our guy Karius has the goods to become great (if he gets it done this season, obv. ) cos right now, he is a very talented and competent GK who believes in himself and you need that confidence to succeed. That confidence and ability needs to be harnessed cos in he end, screaming for a top GK whereas NO ONE will sell to you, is like screaming into the night and being surprised the only voice you hear is your own echo.

13.) 22 Feb 2018 13:24:28
Johncrow, even if Navas was on a free I would avoid it, he’s just not very good.

Should of been a red. Very dangerous challenge.

Mane only one who's got a red for it all season.

4.) 11 Feb 2018 20:34:43
The Spurs LB Ben Davies nearly took Slah's head off in the last game and did not even get a foul. Valencia put a boot into Atsu's face and got a yellow (should have been a red) . Mane does the same thing and gets a red. I would ask the refs for consistencies in decisions BUT I know I'll come up empty-handed. All in all, any time Pulis With Money loses and we win, it is a great day to be an LFC fan. Great job, Rafa!

BRover, what career has Karius built here? And what did he go through that many goal keepers have and still go through weakly. It’s a tough position in professional football where your mistakes cost matches, if he is not strong enough to cope with that then he has picked the wrong profession.
DebGea took much worse abuse for much longer but is incredibly strong and that shows in his current ranking as one of the top GK in the world.
There’s enough excuses being made for Karius, he needs to stop the recurring mistakes and man up or get replaced.
