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.



21 Jul 2017 17:46:18
Eds, do you think Barcelona would have made the bid without first consulted with Coutinho and/ or his agent?


{Ed002's Note - I have explained before that he club are aware of what Coutinho told three international team mates last season and are also aware that PSG, Barcelona and Bayern Munich have continued to have Coutinho watched. He is also aware of interest from Barcelona and one of the three he has spoken with is a Barcelona player. At the end of October his representative visited Barcelona to make clear that the player is open to a move there during 2017 and this re-enforces the recent comment from an international colleague that Coutinho has got Neymar to speak to Barcelona about him as well. Liverpool will work to avoid selling.}

1.) 21 Jul 2017 21:13:28
Hi Ed002, do you believe that Liverpool have the means to buy both Keita and VVD without selling Coutinho? Or will that be a stretch too far financially?

(avoiding any me too of figures of course)

Cheers in advance.

{Ed002's Note - It is to do with a separate matter - move on from the money.}

2.) 23 Jul 2017 14:08:39
We have spent about 50 so far, kieta and vvd will cost around 130/ 150. Klopp was told he had 200 mil to play with so I guess we are fine without selling phil.



19 Aug 2015 08:37:12

Ed will there be a match review for last nite after you stop hurting mate?


{Ed001's Note - yes mate, I have been doing it but had to go out most of today so I am a bit behind.}

1.) 22 Nov 2017 16:26:06
Just wanna say I appreciate you waiting a day to cool your head before you write them.

{Ed001's Note - it gives me a chance to rewatch the game with a calmer head as well. Thank you though mate, I do think it is better, which is why I stopped writing them immediately after.}

2.) 22 Nov 2017 18:19:52
I just see the rage after results like these and wonder what some
OF their reviews would Be like lol.



18 Nov 2017 15:55:47
Is the stat that Salah has more goals in his first nine games than Fowler got? Great company to be in. What a start to his Liverpool career, two great goals.


1.) 18 Nov 2017 16:18:57
At time of writing he's the top scorer in the PL too. More than Kane. More than Aguero.

But I'm sure we still need a natural no.9 to base our forward play around and have him hog all the chances.

2.) 18 Nov 2017 16:33:46
How can someone hog all the chances. Chances fall to players. One player can't demand them all. 🤦🏻‍♂.

3.) 18 Nov 2017 16:40:50
Salah is the best player in the league. I said it 🤗.

4.) 18 Nov 2017 16:52:58
salahs a bargain. I wonder how long we can keep hold of him.

{Ed0333's Note - life without Salah would be meaningless

5.) 18 Nov 2017 17:02:50
Actually he has 9 goals in 12 league games, Fowler got 8, some scoring feat there.

6.) 18 Nov 2017 17:15:10
We already have solanke, sturridge, ings, and origi impressing on loan too, all of who won't be complaining at not starting every game, anybody who believes a number 9 is the priority is just wrong.

{Ed0333's Note - I’m not sure I’d have any of the above in my match day squad apart from Solanke.

7.) 18 Nov 2017 17:39:31
A no 9 is not the priority but from the players you named above you can't be saying you would have them ahead of a world class goalscoring striker. After all the last time Sturridge had his best season it was when he was being complimented by a world class 9.

8.) 18 nov 2017 18:44:14
lads, i'm delighted with salah but less of the blasphemy. god was only a kid when he scored first-until he grew up to be something special whilst mo is already the complete player. that said, maybe a few more years with this form and he'll become a legend.



18 Nov 2017 10:41:17
Would anyone else take Tony Pulis for a short term assignment to work as a defensive coach and set piece defending coach for the first team, reserves and better younger players to try and improve defensive strategy throughout the clubs defenders?


{Ed002's Note - Zero chance.}

1.) 18 Nov 2017 11:42:52
Lay off the ale.

2.) 18 Nov 2017 11:03:30
Ok add but if the option was there would you take it up?

{Ed002's Note - I don’t really understand the question. Klopp has made it clear that he doesn’t want defensive help, regardless of his failings in the market and coaching the defence. Pills certainly would not be the answer.}

3.) 18 Nov 2017 12:37:24
Pulis would ruin our attack. We play out from the back, commit wing backs high up the pitch, play a high line, and have 3 midfielders all expected to press.

Pulis would demand we hoof it out, play sitting full backs, sit deep and have 2 dedicated midfield destroyers.

His teams are good defensively because of tactics. He sacrifices all attacking threat to keep it tight. He isn't any better at coaching defenders than anyone else. He just sets up his teams to protect them better. We need somebody to coach the mistakes out of them, not change the system to make us boring.



11 Nov 2017 22:09:58
Ed your opinion on Shane Duffy centre back for Brighton Hove Albion mate. 25 so still young, great header defensively and attacking.


1.) 12 Nov 2017 08:05:13
Not good enough, IMO. He like Keane at Burnley, play (ed) in a defensive system which we don't play here so he will like Keane at Everton, prolly struggle. I'll pass, thank you.

2.) 12 Nov 2017 09:23:31
Lewis dunk would be the one i would go for at Brighton. A proper old school centre half chucks his body in the way of anything and everything. A good all round defender imo.

3.) 12 Nov 2017 12:08:54
Only seen him play for Ireland who play the worst anti-football imaginable, so it's hard to judge on the back of that.

He seems to have a reasonable amount of pace, so he could physically cover the space our high line would leave, but he strikes me as the type who would struggle badly with an opposition forward being able to turn and run at him with the ball.

4.) 12 Nov 2017 13:25:37
True Something unlike our current Centre Backs Lovren, Matip and Klavan, all of whom have been great this season and last.
IMO we need new players for all three, Duffy is great in the air unlike all three of those mentioned above, is faster than all three above, and he throws himself in the way of shots like a good CB should. He never stops trying unlike the three above. Plus he’s only 25 so other aspects can be coached.

5.) 12 Nov 2017 15:29:57
Ed01 love to hear your opinion. I think he’s a proper old style CB, great in the air and concentrates on keeping the ball out of the net, I think it’s exactly what we need at the moment, plus he’s a great threat on set pieces.

{Ed001's Note - I replied on this days ago, he is slow, slower than Lovren and Matip, that was the reason he was got rid of by Everton, his lack of pace was seen as insurmountable. He is also not that good, it is the way Brighton play that helps him. A good championship level centre back but not really good enough for the Prem.}

6.) 12 Nov 2017 19:53:04
I did not need to hear Ed01's opinion on the lad tho his input is always welcome. All you have to do is watch the guy play and you will see for yourself, Mcgoveb. Same thing with Maguire. He is as slow as a slug with no hips, no positional sense and can't track back when he loses the ball up front (well, cos he's slow) . These CB's are not good enough in a high line and it does not matter where they throw their bodies at.



11 Nov 2017 18:51:08
Ed, do you think there would be a benefit for coaches to sit higher in the stands to get a better overview of the match or do you think they can see enough from ground level?
Does Klopp have any of his assistants at a higher level giving him feedback?


{Ed002's Note - Some do, and some do half and half. I don't know if Klopp has anyone posted there - I rather doubt it.}

1.) 11 Nov 2017 22:08:09
Some do and some don't. It is all about preference.

2.) 11 Nov 2017 19:52:50
If you were a manager Ed would you utilize the high ground?

3.) 12 Nov 2017 06:34:56
Maybe Klopp should get one of those umpire chairs they use in tennis.

Would you like him as a Liverpool player Ed whether it be a replacement for Couts or Can?

Next you'll be saying he's wrong when he said Milner is like a new midfield signing or he's wrong when. he says he's happy with the defense and he's wrong when he says he's have with the GK situation.
You're not real fans, support the team etc etc etc 😂.

Preaching to the choir Benny, unfortunately Klopp doesn’t see it so we’ll revert back to Migs. If the attacking three are a credit to Klopp then Surely playing the wrong keeper in the league is a huge black mark on him as manager.
