Anyone know of or seen anything of this fullback Juanma we are supposedly signing?

Westwood666

1.) 11 Aug 2016 02:33:54
He's only 19 so he is probably not what you thought he was going to be.


2.) 11 Aug 2016 04:47:16
Confirmed signing after successful week trial for the U23 team, not first teamer yet and not expected to be this season. It's a left back, just not ready this season.


3.) 11 Aug 2016 08:47:32
Leftbackinthechangies?


4.) 12 Aug 2016 14:22:52
Chilwell was only 18/ 19.


5.) 12 Aug 2016 16:02:29
Watched him play for 60 minutes in the flesh for the U21's against MK Dons. He is very fast and utilised his speed to make a handful of recovery tackles. He also has a nice touch and is neat in possession. His positioning was very weak though and he over ran the ball on a few occasions. Looks a fairly decent, attacking young left back. Whilst I doubt he will get much if any first team action, with our complete lack of depth there, who knows.


6.) 13 Aug 2016 00:55:14
Would love him to be a dark horse and end up a first team regular a la Bellerin. Would certainly cure our left back headache.

Afternoon eds.
Are we switching our interest in a striker from Benteke to Jovetic?

Westwood666

{Ed002's Note - No.}


1.) 06 Jul 2015 16:50:31
Not sure if he would be interested but Lacazette would be a better fit for our team and when you look at the rumoured transfer fees for him and Benteke it seems a clear one to me.

That said whoever we sign I'll be right behind.


2.) 06 Jul 2015 17:15:52
I totally agree dcal, but i can't see him coming to us. If he doesn't move this summer and has another good season I think he'll be able to pick his own club this time next year.


3.) 06 Jul 2015 20:08:53
I dearly hope we do not sign either of them. If Liverpool are in a position to spend 32m plus wages, then surely there are better achievable options in the current market


4.) 06 Jul 2015 22:23:45
Psynwa - go on then suggest some, that's the whole point genius. If you can't add content and just want to be negative then go play with your toys.


5.) 06 Jul 2015 23:52:03
The people who think Lacazette and Higuain are likely to come to Liverpool are deluded.I do however agree that Benteke is not what we need and we would be better off sticking with what we've got


6.) 07 Jul 2015 02:45:28
I look like to think that Aubamyang, forgive spelling, might be prised away from Dortmund for the amount of money that's being mentioned for Benteke, but nothing's been said about him being a target so wishful thinking I guess. I agree with Dcal, who else is there we could get? Maybe promote Jerome Sinclair? Better hope studge stays fit I guess.


7.) 07 Jul 2015 03:19:47
Higuain and Lacazette won't come to us, we CAN'T stick with what we've got because we need a new quality center forward and there are no real options other than Benteke


8.) 07 Jul 2015 07:35:47
Although I don't think he's worth 32m, I don't see any other option than Benteke. Goal every other game for a team like Villa? With players like Firmino and Coutinho around him I expect him to bing in a few more.


9.) 07 Jul 2015 09:19:19
Benteke is only 24. He's a proven goalscorer in the epl and a real nightmare for defenders. With new coaching staff in place we are obviously going to adopt new ways of playing ball. In part because we have been found out.

So please people, keep the whining to yourselves and support the beast. He might just be exactly what we need.


10.) 07 Jul 2015 10:54:57
I don't mind either. In fact if we could get Jovetic that'd be great because he's half the price. Altho Benteke's performance and form can much clearly be seen than Jove's. Poor thing warming benches at City. Great talent!


11.) 07 Jul 2015 18:31:18
My cousin is a Citeh fan and he hates Jovetic. Says he's lazy. And injury prone. I trust his judgement as he's very knowledgable.

The only positive is that a player exchange would drop the cash price for Stirling and therefore, we have to play QPR less.

{Ed001's Note - not true, the value would be the same.}


 

 

14 Feb 2015 21:33:01
Hi eds. hope all is well.
Quick question, hope you might have an inkling. I would assume the squad needs drastically trimming down in the summer, especially in the striker department.
My question is, with BR seemingly now realising he needs an apparent "plan B" do you think it's likely that one of either Lambert or Mario will be let go, if not both? I consider Borini already gone tbh. I only ask as Mario seems to at least trying recently, and Lambert seems out the picture altogether.
Thanks in advance!

Westwood666

{Ed002's Note - I think Lambert would probably be the firs out of the door. Others need to go to make space for Origi and Ings. Balotelli is keen to stay a few years if other options are not available.}


1.) 14 Feb 2015 21:55:51
So Ed, you're basically saying there's a good chance Ings will be a Liverpool player next season? I'd take that!

{Ed002's Note - See above.}


2.) 15 Feb 2015 04:56:35
If Ed002 just said Rickie may have to make way for Origi and Ings, that implies that Ed002 believes there's a good shout Ings will be a Liverpool player in the summer!


3.) 15 Feb 2015 06:23:05
I would suspect we'd try to move on Aspas and Borini for sure and perhaps Lambert as well. Not sure about Yesil, but he probably needs to move on as well.

Sturridge, Ings, Balotelli, Origi seems like a fair amount of depth to me.


4.) 15 Feb 2015 09:24:15
RDL, i would be happy with Sturridge, Ings, Origi and Balo as well but only if it is the Balo that we saw on the pitch in the last two games. Ings and Origi have little experience on the big stage and pairing them with an established goal scorer will take the pressure off them.


5.) 15 Feb 2015 04:58:14
hi Ed002 regards balo, you say he maybe keen to stay does this co-inside with his last to games has the penny dropped. what do you think or no? I think he could be a good player for us certainly looks good with sturridge. also is brendon starting to like him?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool want to sell him but are asking far too much money. His agent says the only other option is for him to stay. I think the club need to decide what they want to do with all of these strikers.}


6.) 15 Feb 2015 12:23:02
I think Mario has started to improve recently more because we have a proper striker back on the pitch. Mario is best played in a support role as opposed to being the main man. As long as Sturridge is there, he will continue to look good.


7.) 15 Feb 2015 19:37:14
My personal preference would be to offload Mario, Indian Buzzer, but I can't see anyone really wanting him so I think he may be here another year.


8.) 16 Feb 2015 10:34:10
hello Ed002, is that 'far too much money' more than what we paid for him?

{Ed002's Note - The amount is unimportant, but it is far too much. Liverpool will have a better idea about Ings in a week or two - Moyes is trying to get him to sign a pre-contract.}

Hey ed001. Are we really looking to offload the likes of Ojo and Wilson? I personally thought they were well ahead of the likes of Trent and Woodburn. Especially Wilson, he's been great for the U21's. I get a bit down when looking forward to our youth coming through just to never see them get an opportunity.

Westwood666

{Ed001's Note - it depends on them, the decision will be made on them this summer. I expect Ojo to go on loan.}


1.) 24 May 2017 05:43:19
I hope Huddersfield make it into the PL and we use our relationship with them to get Ward, Ojo and perhaps even a Wilson some regular PL experience to see what they can really do.

I think what we need to do is nurture a great relationship with 2-3 clubs that we can build a strong loan system to build a pathway from u23 to PL for the rising stars. Test them in a Championship or lower level PL side, but commit to hem remaining for a year at least (in return for regular playing time) to really test them in a professional league, and then commit to them being replaced with another young star in the next season and so on.

The 2-3 sides we work with will be guaranteed 2-3 young stars a year at cheap wages/ no sign on fees, we build a testing ground for our best u23s before deciding whether to integrate into regular first team and we can loan our players with confidence knowing the situation they'll be playing in and how they'll be treated.

Klopp's relationship with Wagner is a great place to start, especially since Ward has been a successful proof of concept.


2.) 24 May 2017 07:47:56
If Wilson goes on loan it should be somewhere with a big stage like Celtic (assuming they don't get Roberts back) . I think he would thrive there and maybe make a bang in the CL. Otherwise, he and Woodburn can compete as backup to Mane/ Brandt this season. They both have the ability to play at the highest level imo.

And zimbo, I agree with what you say in principle. A policy along those lines has already started in the last 2 seasons with a preference given to creating ties with clubs in the north-east/ midlands. Hence the loan players going to Preston, Blackpool, Morecambe, Tranmere, Fleetwood, Chesterfield, Barnsley, Huddersfield, Burnley, Wigan, etc. But creating ties with 2/ 3 clubs in the same league is fraught with ethical questions and should only be done on a friendly basis, e. g. the Klopp/ Wagner love in. We (or anyone) should never do what Chelsea did to Vitesse, for example. So, although it would be of benefit to have 2/ 3 players on loan at the same club and playing a style of football we like, it's not quite as simple as all that. However, it would be nice to see a system of loans that could actually benefit a few of our youngsters year in year out. I'd suggest next season Bolton back in the Championship and Blackburn in League 1 could be good options. And c'mon Huddersfield for the Prem!


3.) 24 May 2017 12:29:48
Ojo has had an injury plagued season so hasn't really had a chance to prove himself. Wilson came back this season from a bad injury and really spent the first 6 months recovering his form during which time Woodburn seized his chance. Be interesting to see what happens over the off season.


 

 

12 May 2017 06:32:13
Right so I wanna get the mindset of people, including ed001! Do people think we will finish top 4 or not. Not what you hope, what you actually think based on form, players available, home &a away, opposition fixtures etc.
Personally I think we will finish on 74 points-draw v West Ham and win v borough and I think it will just be enough as I see Utd losing to Spurs putting all hope into the EL and Arsenal sliping in one of their 3 remaining games. Calling it now! Obviously I hope we smash both teams and be done with it but unless we up our creativity can't see us breaking WH down. Any other thoughts/ predictions?

Westwood666

{Ed001's Note - I don't do predictions, it is bad luck.}


1.) 12 May 2017 07:17:03
I think we will get the 4th spot but it should have been done and dusted a few games back really.

United will go for the Europa and I don't see them doing anything against spurs anyway.

Arsenal I'm hoping only get a draw at stoke, 3 points against sunderland then do everton roll over if it means arsenal finish above us.

I'm not 100% confident of a win against west ham but if we do its over as I don't see us not getting 3 points against boro.


2.) 12 May 2017 09:03:12
We will not beat west ham, we will anihilate them and also beat boro. Well that's what i dreamed anyway. 😊.


3.) 12 May 2017 09:07:21
We must treat the last 2 games as 2 cup finals, and pray that the results are different from the last 2 cup finals.


4.) 12 May 2017 09:19:35
Yes. We need to channel the optimism of Ron Keague.


5.) 12 May 2017 12:17:20
Optimism is good. But i feel we will not finish 4th. And honestly the way we played the last few games I don't think we deserve the 4th spot. The total point will let us know.


6.) 12 May 2017 14:42:35
I don't think the Boro game is a given, taking into account our inability to break down supposed weaker teams and Boro, although losing regular don't concede too many goals and are difficult to break down. I think we should have enough to finish the job of top four but God are we making it hard for ourselves.


7.) 12 May 2017 14:41:30
Not even for a single match Ed? Explains why there isn't a prediction from you in the preview articles.

{Ed001's Note - I am very very superstitious mate.}


8.) 12 May 2017 16:22:15
3rd place, 76 points. No problem at all 😎.

{Ed025's Note - you could be right ron, but if it is 3rd then you need to wrestle 3 points against west ham mate..


9.) 12 May 2017 20:22:44
I'm comfortable with the West Ham game. We've done well in London this year 👍.


10.) 12 May 2017 23:33:41
Thanks for the input guys. Sorry ed001 didn't realise! I won't ask again!


11.) 12 May 2017 17:26:15
I understand that Ed! Anything to not jinx your favourite! I'm going to give up on fantasy football because of that.


 

 

30 Dec 2016 23:04:15
what's going on with Marko Grujic? Is he likely to get game time this year? High hopes for him but hasn't really had a chance. Is he not getting a look in because of talent, attitude Klopp not a fan or anything else? Especially as as ed002 said he only got a work permit because Klopp said he would play. Annoying that so many calling for Allan to be given a permit but we have Grujic that's not getting a chance.

Westwood666

1.) 30 Dec 2016 23:13:08
Why would you change a winning team.


2.) 30 Dec 2016 23:20:42
He has been injured. Only back in training this week.


3.) 31 Dec 2016 01:39:08
tendon injury since before the Middlesborough game.


4.) 31 Dec 2016 11:25:05
Not suggesting changing a winning team in the league but I would of expected him to play in the cup games. But thanks natural and Imred, I wasn't aware he was injured. Happy new year all fans and the eds! Thanks for all your info over the past year and look forward to your insights over 2017 as well!


 

 

19 Dec 2016 12:08:07
Is another wise player in the mould of Mane likely to be a a target moving forwards? I only ask as I see him as a massive part of how we play, with his pace and directness pulling teams apart at time. He seems to have a lot to do with all our goals build up play and although we have a others in the squad, no one else is really like him.

Couts is a different sort of player with less pace, Bobby hasn't been at his best since moved out wide, can't see Sturridge playing well out wide, Origi I prefer leading the line and the likes of Ojo who i'd love to see given a chance when mane is away relatively unproven.
I just think mane brings something no-else does or can and we should have another player like him, not only to cover injuries / ACON but to actually make a first team spot his own, especially if some of our better players may be on their way at the end of the season ( we all know who! ) Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Westwood666

1.) 19 Dec 2016 12:41:00
You answered your own question - Ojo is the next target to bring into the first XI to replace Mane as required.


2.) 19 Dec 2016 14:00:17
Mane is going nowhere.


 

 

15 Dec 2016 00:08:58
Anyone else thinking Origi is good enough to make the No.9 shirt and a starting position up front his own? His decisions are a little off sometimes but his ability already at a young age is impressive and potential to be a great all round striker is massive. Love watching him playing well currently!

Westwood666

1.) 15 Dec 2016 04:25:58
he waited for his chance, and boy did he take it.


2.) 15 Dec 2016 05:20:07
He has the potential to be good enough, no doubt. I still think he looks very raw at times and, as you say, makes some poor decisions. He does have an excellent skillset though and all the tools to be a top player - the next year or so will really make or break the lad - the early signs are good though. The derby is the real test - can he perform under extreme pressure? We shall see.

I wouldn't want to push Firmino out wide for any player even Messi let alone Origi. Nothing wrong or against Origi but we have to play both together high up.


6.) 15 Dec 2016 08:29:04
We looked better once origi and firmino switched positions last night.


7.) 15 Dec 2016 09:47:45
Its like any position.
Work hard In training, wait for your chance, when it comes grab it with both hands knowing there's a few un happy team mates ready and waiting to take your place if you don't do well.

Great management.


8.) 15 Dec 2016 13:53:45
Origi scored in the last derby so he knows what the pressures of a derby looks and feels like. The boy although raw, has it ALL and he is the future of LFC at the CF position, period, end of story. A young and raw Robert Lewandowski, came to Dortmund at 21 and after biding his time and under Klopp`s tutelage, we know what he has become. I see the same thing in Origi and I`m confident that by the time Klopp is done with him, he can be another Lewa because he is that brilliant and I`m not sure Lewa was this good at 21.

Wet disappointed in this. He should back himself to be good enough, not just expect a starting role. It's an attitude he should not have. All top teams have competition for places and if he's not willing to fight for a place in a team in our current position when we haven't even signed anyone yet I think that tells you all you need to hear. Massive shame as I think he could be special.

Every player has their rice though. I would hold out for as close to 150 million as possible to help fund VVD and Keita and then go back in for Brandt. I don't want Couts to leave obviously but in that scenario I don't think we would come out to bad.

I think Klopp will want a top goal scorer but right now is it really a priority? We scored enough goals last season to contend but the defence was awful so that's where we need to strengthen. Klopp has usually had a natural goal scorer leading the line - Lucas Barrios, Lewandowski, Aubameyang. If Studge wasn't almost totally broken and had the confidence in his body to get around as much as Bobby does I'm sure he would start more games. We will see this season. Anyway if he doesn't work out I expect Klopp to target a top striker next summer.

He's 23. Give the fella a break. He's got something there, maybe he doesn't show it consistently but he's got quality and will get better. How many people wanted Hendo gone when Fulham bid for him? And now he's the first name on the team sheet when fit. how many other players on here get bashed prematurely? I remember people on here saying Suarez couldn't finish, that Mane and Gino weren't what we needed, or Coutinho isn't consistent but then whinge when other teams show interest. Get a grip.

Regardless of Keira's talent and potential, I think other areas of the team are more important to strengthen. With Solanke looking good, Salah coming in and Couts likely to drop deeper (IMO) I would be happy if we signed a solid CB over anything else. No names mentioned.
