Ed001,
Everyone is always asking Ed002 for her list of players that Liverpool are looking at. Any chance you can do the same from what you've been told? Time permitting of course. I'm sure most would like to have a gander at what you know!

Tristan

{Ed001's Note - I was hoping to get time today, but not had the chance, I have added it to my to do list to try and get on to it during the week.}


1.) 13 Feb 2016 15:30:01
Thanks Ed can't wait to see it mate.


2.) 13 Feb 2016 20:45:10
That's what she said.

Hello eds and fellow football fans.
With regards to the latest Joey Barton indiscretion.
I think we can all say that he's a bit of a plonker for what he did but, ignoring his past, was his sentence too harsh?
Also with what he said about the leagues being involved with sponsorship by betting firms (LFC also heavily involved) can we, or should we, see a sway away from such involvement by them?
It is rather hypocritical, I find personally, that they ban and fine someone for being involved in a practice that they're prepared to take money from and openly encourage by doing so.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
Ed001 from a fan perspective and, if you care to get involved, ed002 from a business perspective?

Tristan

{Ed002's Note - Quite frankly he has been stupid but he should have been offered help. The ban is particularly harsh and refects previous problems. As for the involvement of betting companies in sponsorship, some clubs shy away from such companies but others are happy to be involved.}


1.) 27 Apr 2017 17:56:57
I don't see the argument about sponsorship to be honest.
How many years were we sponsored by Carlsberg?
Plenty of alcoholics in and out of football. No-one bat an eyelid.
Barton has been a fool, time for his agent and the PFA to step up and get him help.


2.) 27 Apr 2017 18:32:09
Barton needs help true, but it doesn't stop him being a scumbag that needs to learn and accept this every moment in his life doesn't exist in isolation. He can't claim he's a nice thoughtful guy after beating rubbish out of lads on the street and getting into fights with team mates, he can't intentionally start fights on the field to try and get people sent off or go studs up time after time and claim he's a fair player and he can't get yet another ban for a major footballing offense and claim it's too hard because it's his first offence when it's simply the first attempt of it's specific kind.

Not to mention he bet on his own team losing. Which people may say was because he wasnt involved in the squad, but you don't know he wasnt giving key players a kick in training, or betting cause he knew their top striker was not getting kicks on target all week, or that their keeper wouldn't be playing for personal reasons etc and betting accordingly. Just cause he couldn't actually make a loss happen doesn't mean he couldn't play with the odds!

{Ed025's Note - im with you hjikie barton is a nasty piece of work, prison is place he should be mate..


3.) 27 Apr 2017 19:57:14
The problem with Barton, is that he knows just enough big words to make people think he has a little sense. He's just a hooligan with a dictionary.

Everyone's first memory of their first time at Anfield?
Mine was 1993 versus Swindon.
I lived in Hereford, my dad gave me £20 and me and my best mate took a minibus, arranged in the local paper down.
It got us travel, a ticket into the Kop, scarf, programme and a bag of chips from the Dolphin (? ) afterwards.
Finished 2-2 and I'll never forget the crush when we scored no a chap standing behind us, put his arms round me and my friend, onto the bollards, and seemed to hold everyone back. We stood the other side of it after that.
We were 13 at the time, I'm not sure if our parents knew what they were giving us money for, but it was a hell of a day.
Went back twice more that season, Manchester City and Newcastle United. It was the season after that the Kop was all seated.
I'm so glad I got to stand in it.

Tristan

2013. First bonus I ever got at work. A season ticket holder I know went travelling and let me buy tickets for two games together for my dad and I, paid for everything (cleaned out the bonus and then some but was a dream come true) . First was West Ham, second was Cardiff. Arrived 3 hours early, wondered around until the doors opened and then took our seats in an empty stadium and watched it fill. What a day.

{Ed025's Note - sounds good mate..


2.) 27 Apr 2017 22:32:32
Mine was Against qpr a couple of years ago. My mate has a season ticket with his dad and brothers, but they couldn't go so got to go instead. Got to see Gerrards last league goal at anfield. Was a good day out.


3.) 27 Apr 2017 22:28:42
We were against napoli, the atmosphere was electric with banter going between the sets of fans. We went 1-0 down and was thinking the worst (first game at anfield being a loss) then stevie g joined the fray and banged a hat trick.

Wont be forgetting that in a very long time!

Just like to wish the Eds the best of luck.
We've just released our annual figures.

Tristan

1.) 01 Mar 2017 11:07:47
Just read about it then - it sounds good to me. Club has reduced it's debt drastically, it is now far more secure and operating within reasonable parameters it can afford and is growing continually - the commercial side of the club certainly seems to be paying dividends with the new, more professional approach the owners have taken since joining. Our on field form is bad and that is something well known but this report, about our off field stuff, seems like good news to me.

{Ed002's Note - You don't understand about the debt. You need to look very carefully at the word "external".}


2.) 01 Mar 2017 11:40:38
Personally don't understand the likes of "external", do you see these set of results as disappointing then?

{Ed002's Note - No, the results are fine and the loss is less than expected.}


3.) 01 Mar 2017 14:27:23
Without reading the accounts in detail, I would assume that the "external" issue is that the amount of money we owe 3rd parties has fallen. However, I would imagine that a bit of digging will sho that our "internal" (for want of a better word! ) debt has risen, i. e. FSG have been loaning us money to cover losses etc. Famously we were losing £1m per week then they arrived.


4.) 01 Mar 2017 19:01:02
The club has posted an annual loss of £20 mill which I am sure would be ignored on this site conveniently.


5.) 01 Mar 2017 19:46:47
Not at all, Harry. 20m is a lot less than the 50m that the club was hemorrhaging every season so not complaining about that, my friend.


 

 

01 Dec 2016 20:42:21
Hi ed001,
If you're about, what's the general thoughts on young Harry Wilson at Liverpool, do you know?
Been doing really well, and captain, of the U23s this season. Not had any sort of look in on the first team squad so far.
Is that just a case of not being rushed after his last season and a bit of niggles?
Hope everyone is having a great 1st of the month!

Tristan

{Ed001's Note - he got overhyped early on, so he has been protected since then as there were signs it got to him. Now he has settled down and got over the injuries, things are going well and a lot is expected of him. He is on the verge of getting a chance in the first team as well.}


1.) 01 Dec 2016 20:56:06
That's good to hear.
Thank you ed 😊.

{Ed001's Note - you are very welcome mate.}


2.) 01 Dec 2016 23:53:37
He's the one I really wanna see, Ed because I've heard so much about him.


3.) 01 Dec 2016 23:39:49
am i right in thinking wilson, ojo and woodburn all play in the same / similar position? and as such, despite it being really exciting, hamper each others chances?


4.) 02 Dec 2016 00:40:03
I always about the young lads, but especially more so for the young british lads. don't know why, I just have a stereotyped view that the young UK lads seem more likely to get caught up in their own hype before they actually ebcome something.


5.) 02 Dec 2016 00:55:09
The youth we have coming through at the moment is one of the reasons I hope we don't sign a winger/ attacking mid in January. It would be a real smack in the face to the likes of Wilson, Brannagan, Ojo, Woodburn etc. I'd much prefer to see some of them lads get a chance in the absence of Mané due to AFCON and others due to injuries. Though with the amount of young players pushing for a chance in the first team, they'll have to impress if/ when they get a chance.


6.) 02 Dec 2016 10:39:55
Heard plenty about this young Wilson but never seen him play just seen clips. Let's hope the lad keeps working hard and gets his chance soon. We're in a great situation at the moment in regards to our youngsters just to name a few, Trent, Ojo, Woodbury, Wilson. Not forgetting the rest of course. Must be the best set of young lads we've had in a long time.


7.) 02 Dec 2016 10:40:21
Woodbury. auto correct.


8.) 02 Dec 2016 10:40:33
I give up lol.


 

 

22 Jul 2016 09:08:25
Hi Ed001,
If you're about, I used to love Steve McMahon when I was a boy. Seen him many times but I was only young. What was your opinion on him?
It was always between him and Steve Nicol for my favourite player back in the 80's. Nicol pipped him but the be seen you've given a glowing report on him before!

Tristan

{Ed001's Note - he was a good player, not in the class of the likes of Souness and Case etc though. Not as hard. Very good at what he did though. Grit and determination, just not quite at the level of what went before. It showed in the Wimbledon final when he bottled it against them.}


1.) 22 Jul 2016 09:24:43
I'm old enough to remember these guys but the archived footage LFC TV have shown has made me of the opinion that Whelan, Houghton and Souness are the 3 best midfielders we've ever had.

Smith, Hughes and Callaghan sound like they were decent too mind you!

Such a rich history we have!


2.) 22 Jul 2016 09:44:03
I'm not old enough that should say!


3.) 22 Jul 2016 09:54:12
Gerrard and Alonso were pretty good midfielders too MK.


4.) 22 Jul 2016 10:04:01
Think you might have missed a few there MK 😄 but you're right we have a great history.


5.) 22 Jul 2016 10:25:27
Never forget that goal against Arsenal at anfield when mc Mahon sprinted to keep the ball going out for a throw in and the move ended up with Aldo scoring.


6.) 22 Jul 2016 10:29:42
They were all "team" players of very good ability, our 80s team proving it is all about team and not about individuals. A managers main job is in man-management, motivation and drive in my mind, and getting appropriately above average (in an individual sense) players to be well above average in the collective. For that you have to have personality. Great if you are a technical tactician too, but you have those around you in coaching support. I think Klopp has that in abundance and have high hopes he will deliver ultimately, whereas someone like Wenger at Arsenal for example with the riches of individuals he has had at his disposal has underachieved for the opposing reason. So we can talk about all these players as individuals as much as we want but what made them so good was the network around them IMO.


7.) 22 Jul 2016 10:31:38
don't forget Igor!


8.) 22 Jul 2016 10:46:51
John Barnes.


9.) 22 Jul 2016 10:57:47
Arsenal unfortunately have good reason to remember McMahon too ☝️😡.


10.) 22 Jul 2016 12:10:15
I was at that game twinkle toes. Great piece of skill and commitment. Steve McMahon was a great player. Ronnie Whelan was another class act too remember the league cup final goals anyone?

12.) 22 Jul 2016 12:39:15
Ray Kennedy Souness and Gerrard are our best three, with a shout out to John Wark who not one person mentions when talking about some of our great midfielders, 31 goals he scored from midfield one season, he was the Lampard of his day only 5 times better.


13.) 22 Jul 2016 13:06:51
Terry Mac was always a favourite of mine, I heard he used to go on the piss on Friday but would still run all day long, scored a lot from midfiled also! Lovely hairdo also!


14.) 22 Jul 2016 12:55:33
To be fair to McMahon, Vinnie Jones should have been sent off for that tackle on him in the final against Wimbledon. I think it's easy to say he bottled it but I remember seeing Vinnie in real life walking past me in a golf club car pack. I say walking past but in reality I had to walk out of his way as he wasn't moving aside. No camera phones in those days fortunately to witness my pants changing colour!

{Ed001's Note - but that is the point, in the Souness days, he would have done Jones instead. Case would have just laughed at that tackle. Mind I did love Jones, he was better than given credit for.}


15.) 22 Jul 2016 13:05:24
Jonny Wark. Another great Waro. We've had a few haven't we mate. Used to like watching him play too. Hard little ucker and a great tash.


16.) 22 Jul 2016 13:11:57
I've met McMahon, nice bloke and a lot shorter then I expected.


17.) 22 Jul 2016 14:03:45
He was Alfie, great player both at us and Ipswich.


18.) 22 Jul 2016 16:16:12
This is the goal vs Arsenal, finished off by the god that is Aldo :-)

Liverpool 2 v Arsenal 0 1988. J. Aldridge and P. Beardsley the scorers


19.) 22 Jul 2016 19:03:49
Got to give a nod to one of my all time favourites- the Great Dane Jan Molby. He always scored his penalties by passing the ball into the net. Great at freekicks. Had a shot like a bullet. He was a "pass master" who always had so much time on the ball. He made it all look so effortless and played like he had his slippers on.

Great player of the beautiful game 😎.


20.) 22 Jul 2016 19:40:17
Souness was the best, Alonso comes close. Rest all could take up the next places.

I never said they never spent any money, I said they probably don't "like the idea" of it.
To say they like the idea of replacing him with a big money signing is ridiculous.
They'd like the idea of replacing him with someone from the academy, I'm sure.
Spending £60 or £70 million on a player isn't going to have them jumping through hoops.

I'm pretty sure that the owners don't "like the idea" of spending a lot of money.
They may be resigned to the fact, but I doubt it's one they are rubbing their hands with glee over.

C'mon ed002, now we have been named as the 9th richest club we can afford a few £80-90 million transfers, yeah? I'd say 9 new first team centre backs is a priority.

I think the bigger question, Ron, is how many do we sign to replace him? Just in case the replacement gets an injury.

For a start, comparing player is ridiculous. Everyone matures at a different rate.
Secondly, didn't they only land 11 hours previous? Maybe they were a bit tired?
It was a silly end of season friendly that meant nothing except money. Should never have been done in my opinion. Or at least let them have a few days rest first. Asking for injuries to happen.

I think the satisfaction with Ejaria lies in the fact he was released by Arsenal, and we made/ will hopefully make him a first team player.
A bita of a middle finger to them, if you like 😊.

Tristan

{Ed001's Note - good point.}

Thanks ed.
Give me a choice between a £50 million signing or a youngster coming through the academy and I would pick the latter every day of the week.

Tristan

{Ed001's Note - same here. Both have a place but it is so satisfying to produce a talent rather than buy it. Though I am never sure which camp players like Ejaria fit in. He was brought in from another academy after all.}
